Bring Me The Horizon Release ‘Avalanche’ Video

Sheffield titans Bring Me The Horizon have released a new video for their track Avalanche from 2015 album That’s The Spirit.

The song is based around frontman Oli Sykes’ diagnosis with ADHD relatively recently and explores the momentum with which that kind of label hits, either positively or negatively.

The video itself is part live clip, part creative film but it makes for a pretty good watch so see it over at at Vevo (click here to see it).

The band are also playing a run of UK arena shows in the latter part of the year, see the poster below:

Fall Out Boy Release ‘Ghostbusters’ Single

The new remake of 80s cult film Ghostbusters has come with a full female cast to change it up a bit. Oh, and a title theme from Fall Out Boy.

The track is titled Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid) and it is loosely based on Ray Parker Jr‘s title track from the original, yet has a rather pop rock twist as you would expect from the band, not to mention a cameo from rapper Missy Elliot.

The new film, starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig will be released July 15th.

Listen to the track below:


Fall Out Boy will also coheadline Reading & Leeds Festival alongside Biffy Clyro (tickets here for Reading and Leeds here):

Bastille Release ‘Good Grief’ Video

Alt-rock heroes Bastille released the first single from new album Wild World, titled Good Grief, last week and have debuted the video today.

The record comes as a follow-up to debut record Bad Blood‘s rerelease All This Bad Blood and will be released at some point later this year.

Frontman Dan Smith said: “We were excited to be able to work with NYSU (Wild Beasts, New Order) on the video which was shot over 6 or so days in Madrid. It is like a mad visual Rubik’s cube that takes a load of archetypal narrative scenarios and then twists and collides them together. We wanted to make something fun and chaotic and surreal that would serve as a fittingly odd accompaniment to the song.”

Terraform Reveal Enticing New Single ‘Atonement’

Birmingham-based prog metal quintet TERRAFORM have revealed the video for their new single titled Atonement, taken from their upcoming EP Adrift, which is due for a 15th July 2016 release.

The band said of the EP: “We have a lot of the similar attributes to that of many progressive metal bands. However, we focus more on the clean vocals, using more catchy melodies whilst still keeping to our roots. Listeners can expect to hear a new sound from Terraform, still within our bracket, but we focus far less on aggressive vocals in this EP, retaining many of our original influences but bringing in new and exciting aspects.”

Watch the video below:

Simulacrum Unveil New Additional Vocalist

Simulacrum have welcomed vocalist Erik Kraemer as an additional member to the band. His style is “a great asset both live and on the next studio album” which is currently in production. The record is “heading towards the modern realms of djent” so sounds like it may well be heavier than previous releases.

Through Erik possessing a higher pitched traditional metal sound, the band claim it will complement current vocalist Niklas “in a way that lets them both shine” while being different enough to be “easy to spot which one of them is singing on the songs”.
