Operator Release Music New Video for “Ruin”

operator

The post-hardcore band Operator delivers an unforgiving wave of thrash in their new single “Ruin”. Shot entirely in black and white, the video makes use of creative, tightly framed camera angles. The group is currently offering the track as a free download for a limited time via their BandCamp page.

Stylistically, this song is a step closer to what we originally imagined the band to sound like,” says vocalist Chris Constanza. “It’s taken some time to actually flesh out our sound, despite having a distinct vision for it back when we started. I hope our progression is evident in this music and continues to be apparent for our future releases.

Upcoming Tour Dates:

May 7 – Valdosta, GA @ Ashley Street Station

May 8 – St. George Island, FL @ JBG Rockfest (Day 1)

May 9 – St. George Island, FL @ JBG Rockfest (Day 2)

May 10 – Pensacola, FL @ The Handlebar

May 23 – St. Petersburg, FL @ Pabst Blue Ribbon’s Burgatory Fest

Operator is a five piece post-hardcore/metal outfit hailing from Tampa Bay, Florida. Originally formed in 2013, Operator released their debut album entitled ‘Dead Ends’ before undergoing a fairly drastic lineup change. After taking eight months for reformation, Operator regrouped with the current lineup, and released their sophomore release ‘Admission,’ in late 2014, to copious amounts of positive feedback.

With 2015’s performance development well underway, the band has scheduled tours throughout the summer as well as plans for the remainder of the year. Operator continues to execute live presentation with as much (or more) raw energy and emotion than what is illustrated in their music.

Operator will be showcasing their transitioned musical direction via the release of three independent singles, prior to the release of their third album in late 2015. On March 3, 2015, Operator released the first of the three singles entitled ‘Poison,’ again receiving immense positive feedback. On May 5, 2015, Operator released the second single entitled ‘Ruin.’ The release date of the third and final single is still to be announced.

Catch Operator at one of their upcoming shows, and make sure to stay connected with the band through social media outlets!

DEVOUR THE DAY SIGN TO RAZOR & TIE
Recording New Album For 2015 Release
Band To Tour With Three Days Grace This Summer
Razor & Tie announces the addition of hard rockers Devour The Day to its worldwide label roster. The band is currently in the studio working on their new album with producer Dan Korneff (Paramore, Lamb of God, My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach).  The music will be released later this year.
The band continues to have a stronghold at rock radio with their current single “Faith” just cracking the Top 20 at Active Rock this week and #23 at Mainstream Rock.  Listen to “Faith” here:
Devour The Day will tour this summer with Three Days Grace starting June 21st through July 30th (tour dates below).
Watch the band’s signing video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iY89g2z4fO0
Joey Chicago and Blake Allison of Devour The Day comment, “Everyone in the Devour the Day family is so elated at the opportunity to join the Razor & Tie roster. We are thrilled to have the chance to move forward with an exceptional team behind us. We feel Razor & Tie will do their best to support us as a functioning and successful business, but more importantly as artists. This relationship allows us to continue to be as honest creatively as we have always been, but also takes it a step further in our hope to reach and influence as many people worldwide with our music.”
Formed in 2012, Devour the Day was born from the brain trust of Joey Chicago (Bass, Vocals, Songwriter) and Blake Allison (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter, Producer).  After success with the band Egypt Central, Blake and Joey sought to break out on their own, writing and producing music without compromise. Devour The Day self-released their debut album, Time & Pressure, in 2014 and has sold over 20,000 units to date.  The band is a mainstay at rock radio with several songs charting in the Top 25 at Active Rock, including the single “Good Man,” which hit the Top 10 and sold over 100,000 singles.  The band has toured with In This Moment, Hellyeah, Sevendust, Three Days Grace, Butcher Babies, Hinder, Candlebox, Buckcherry, Pop Evil, Rob Zombie, All That Remains, and Joan Jett.  Devour The Day has also played a number of festivals including  Rock on Range, Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma, and Welcome to Rockville.  Devour the Day is managed by David Cash of Fat Lady Music and represented for touring by Bryan Vastano of The Agency Group.
Devour The Day joins Razor & Tie at an exciting time in the label’s history as R&T finished 2014 as the #2 overall label at Rock Radio and the #1 indie label.  Led by breaking stars The Pretty Reckless, Starset, and established greats All That Remains and The Sword, Razor & Tie is becoming the leading label in rock.  Other recent signings include Wilson, Red Sun Rising, Crossfaith, Failure Anthem and Sons of Texas.

 Read an in-depth interview with TECH N9NE about ‘Wither’ via Loudwire.com HERE

Corey Taylor has often publicly praised Tech and his approach to both hip-hop and heavy music. “Working with Tech was a no-brainer,” states Taylor. “When I heard the music for ‘Wither’, I knew the two of us would make something dark and crazy. The slow burn in the music is awesome- his band is great and the performance is incredible. People are gonna shit!”

TECH N9NE is currently touring on his Special Effects Tour 2015, which wraps up in Wichita on June 3. The tour also features indie-rap mainstay Chris Webby, along with label mates Krizz Kaliko and MURS, Flint, Michigan metal band King 810 and Jamaican rap-phenom ZUSE.

Secrets Review by Kelly Tucker

Secrets Review

Kelly Tucker

Rise Records hardcore giants SECRETS graced Greater Cincinnati for an unconventionally intimate night of breakdowns and melodies Saturday, April 18.

Hosted at Madison Live! in Covington, Kentucky, the scene was set in closer quarters with fans packing in tightly toward the stage, hoping to catch a glimpse of the headliners. SECRETS performed as the only national act on the set list. The members were gracious onstage, embracing the smaller venue and the house full of fans that came out to support them with open arms and explosive energy.

If you missed the show, here are our top takeaways from the performance:

#3. SECRETS are incredibly down to earth and dedicated.
The band just loves to perform, simple as that, and it was evident as they powered through crowd favorites like “Live Together, Die Alone” and “Ready for “Repair.” The band truly gave it their all, working through technical mishaps that had the two vocalists sharing a microphone at one point in the beginning of the set. SECRETS are clearly a do-whatever-it-takes kind of band. The lineup and venue set the stage for an intimate feel—something uncommon for bands from this genre, which typically tour with multiple national acts at a time—and the dire fans evidently enjoyed it. That said…

#2. Their fans are hardcore.
We don’t mean they may or may not beat you up in the parking lot out back afterwards. Ocean Grid might have gotten the pit going for the evening, but it barely stopped throughout SECRETS’ spirited set. Fans packed the venue shouting along to every word, waving their hands and shaking their fists like it was a spiritual experience. And hey, maybe for them, it was something like that. What’s clear is that SECRETS fans form a strong connection with the band’s sound and lyrics, and that connection has created a solid fan base that comes together in a powerful way. But SECRETS weren’t the only ones drawing super-fans to the stage that night.

#1. Cincinnati has some pretty impressive homegrown hardcore talent.
All three openers were local bands, hand-picked for their similar sound. It was a great opportunity for Cincinnati to showcase its own post-hardcore talent, with seasoned local vets at the helm. Allies Aside were incredibly animated with high energy, heavy base and heavier screams, while Seeing Ghosts emerged with a stirring melodic sound that can only be described as markedly both jaded and optimistic. Ocean Grid opened up the pit with heavy metalcore that prepped the crowd perfectly for the headliner.

Our only disappointment was that SECRETS’ “Ass Back Home” cover from Punk Goes Pop 5 didn’t make its way onto the set list. But SECRETS wrapped up the night the only way they could have—with an encore performance of “Dance of the Dead,” a writhing circle pit and an on-point delivery to satisfy a thoroughly enthralled audience.

Blessing A Curse go “Down The Rabbit Hole” in New Music Video

blessingacurse

Orlando hard rock act Blessing A Curse has released a music video for their song “Down The Rabbit Hole”. The plot follows a murderous villain whose face is concealed by a creepy bunny mask and ends with quite a twist. The video originally premiered with Revolver.

Vocalist Joshy Singer said, “The song itself is about me rejoining Blessing a Curse after parting ways with the band for a year and struggling with depression after my dad passed away. The video symbolizes how sometimes you have to fight your toughest battles on your own in order to find the true friends who will stick by you through your darkest times, even in spite of the pain you’ve caused them.”

GIFT GIVER premiere new video for
“Trendkill” via Lambgoat
SHITLIFE in stores Tuesday!
giftgiver

Detroit’s GIFT GIVER are set to release their Century Media debut, SHITLIFE on tuesday.  The band is currently on tour with Sworn In and have just completed a killer video for their song “Trendkill” from SHITLIFE.  Our friends at Lambgoat.com are hosting the premiere here:

http://lambgoat.com/features/239/Gift-Giver-Trendkill-video-premiere

Gift Giver lead singer, Justin Johnson had this to say about the video:

Trendkill is a shot at anyone who holds themselves in a higher regard over “what’s hot”. I don’t give a fuck if you like metal, rap, hardcore, pop music, etc… The trendy elitist bullshit isn’t cool. If you can’t appreciate most styles of music- you should probably go live inside a fucking box.

The video for Trendkill shows us doing business as usual. It was shot on our last tour with our boys in Villains, Barrier, Traitors, and Adaliah. Hope you enjoy it.

You can also preview the first song, “Cursed” from the album here:

INCUBUS AND DEFTONES ANNOUNCE CO-HEADLINING SUMMER TOUR

warner

– Two Of Alternative Rock’s Most Influential Artists Kick Off Tour On July 22 and Will Visit Nearly 20 Cities Across The United States –

 – Death From Above 1979 and The Bots Will Join The Tour As Special Guests –

 – Tickets On Sale Beginning April 24 at LiveNation.com –

deftones

Alternative Rock heroes, Incubus and Deftones, announced today they will set out on a co-headlining summer tour visiting nearly 20 cities throughout the United States with more to be announced. The tour, produced by Live Nation, will kick off on July 22 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Mich. and take the two bands to New York City, Chicago, Boston, Houston, Dallas and more before wrapping up on August 30 in San Diego, Cali. Death From Above 1979 and The Bots will join the tour as special guests. Tickets go on sale beginning April 24 at www.livenation.com.

Multi-platinum alternative rock heavyweights Incubus recently signed with Island Records, and will release 4-song EP entitled Trust Fall (Side A) on May 12. After nearly two years off the grid conceptualizing and recording new material, Incubus, under the management of Johnny Wright at Wright Entertainment Group, has its sights set on a “non-traditional” album in 2015.  Founding member Mike Einziger told Billboard.com that although the band didn’t have “any plans of making this record” the new music is “pretty indicative of where we are now. This is what the band sounds like in 2015.” The EP’s digital pre-order is available on iTunes, and the CD and vinyl versions of the EP can be pre-ordered now HERE. Twenty years since the release of their indie debut album in 1995, Fungus Amongus. Incubus went on to release six studio albums (the last three produced by Brendan O’Brien), achieving RIAA Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum success; as well as five live albums. Four of their songs have hit #1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, including “Drive” (2000, also Top 10 Pop), “Megalomaniac” (2003), “Anna Molly” (2006), and “Love Hurts” (2008).

Since Deftones’ inception, the multi-Platinum, Grammy Award®-winning alternative rock band from Sacramento, Cali. have quietly been pursuing two paths, delivering songs defined by churning, double-fisted aggression while also testing the boundaries of music by incorporating elements of psychedelia and shoegaze. The Los Angeles Times wrote of Deftones, “Hard rock thrives on conflict and chaos, and no band has found more beauty and soaring aggression within those ingredients than Deftones.”  The band’s seventh studio album Koi No Yokan, released in November 2012, spawned two Top Five hits at Rock radio (“Tempest” and “Swerve City”). Koi No Yokan met with critical acclaim with Revolver naming it their “Album of the Year” and SPIN selecting it as one of its Top 50 Albums of 2012. The New York Post also hailed it as “one of the best rock albums of the year.” Deftones have released seven albums to date and have sold over 10 million albums worldwide. Vocalist/guitarist Chino Moreno, guitarist Stephen Carpenter, keyboardist/samplist Frank Delgado, drummer Abe Cunningham and bassist Sergio Vega, are currently working on their eighth studio album to be released in 2015.

Globally revered and highly influential dance-punk duo Death From Above 1979 are touring in support The Physical World released by Last Gang Records/Warner Bros. Records this past September.

Produced by D. Sardy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem, Wolfmother, Oasis), The Physical World comes a full ten years after the release of the band’s universally acclaimed debut album, You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine, which made Jesse F. Keeler (bass, synths, backing vocals) and Sebastien Grainger(vocals and drums), an underground / overground sensation. DFA 1979 broke up in 2006 while the first album and subsequent remix album continued to sell inexplicably. They decided to reunite in 2011 and began to perform live picking up where they left off without missing a beat. Their rabid cult has only continued to amass just as inexplicably. “Returning a decade later, they’re still crushing violent, angular riffs, but they’re also writing catchier songs. A throwback to a throwback that better the second time around.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
