ICYMI: Rise Records catch-up

It’s pretty safe to say Rise Records have had a couple of huge weeks these last couple of weeks with quality and quantity both breaking out of its roster.

First up is The Gospel Youth who released their stunning new album on the 14th July – their debut on Rise as well as their first full length. Always Lose comes as a follow-up to the twelve crowdfunded singles in twelve months that made the group their name, becoming renowned as the up-and-coming British rock band with their honest lyrics and catchy hooks. In addition to the whole album, they’ve released a video for the track Your Love Was A Cancer which was filmed on this year’s Vans Warped Tour. The band are currently still out on the road for another couple of weeks on that run until it closes on 6th August.

Goldfinger have made a monumental comeback with their first album in nine years titled The Knife which was released yesterday. Since 2008’s Hello Destiny, the band have been working on songs to supply other artists as well as frontman John Feldmann’s infamous production work for the likes of 5 Seconds of Summer and Black Veil Brides. The new album itself features appearances from Mighty Mighty Boss Tones guitarist Nate Albert and a near-whole album performance from blink-182‘s Travis Barker on drums amongst others, and was released on Rise yesterday (21st July).  The latest single from the album is called Put The Knife Away which easily demonstrates how Goldfinger have grown since that last album with huge gang vocals and a more poppy feel throughout that almost verges on blink-182 sounds.

Silverstein released a brand new album on the 14th July through Rise as well, titled Dead Reflection which comes 17 years into their veteran career. Latest single Mirror Box was also put out at the same time, a song which demonstrates the band’s melodies while remaining heavy in many ways. Silverstein will be on tour in North America, UK and EU for the rest of the year so check out dates here.

Palisades have released a new music video, this time for their song Better Chemicals. It features on their self-titled third album which was released on the label earlier this year. The band are currently on tour with Japan’s ONE OK ROCK in the US, and will be returning to the UK in August for the annual Reading & Leeds festival.

 

Make Them Suffer Announce UK Headline Tour

Australia’s own Make Them Suffer are headed to the UK this October with Novelists and Cursed Earth. The band have announced this ahead of their July 28th release of Worlds Apart which will be released via Rise Records. Pick up a pre-order at the Rise Records store. They’ve also released a new single off of the upcoming album, titled Uncharted, check it out below:

“Worlds Apart represents a new era for Make Them Suffer, we’ve taken risks in songwriting and production; this album is a reminder to ourselves that change and growth are good things. It’s tough to say so early, but I think Worlds Apart is an album that will be in your stereo for quite some time.” – Sean Harmanis, vocals

Acceptance – Colliding By Design

Colliding By Design opens with Diagram of a Simple Man, a track which brings an indie feel to the album from the  off. A 4-note vocal melody rings out in the first verse which demonstrates classic indie style, and the effects on the guitars in the intro play to the genre fully. The guitars almost verge on an early Coldplay-esque feel as they play sliding leads throughout, but the song sets the tone for the rest of the album to follow. The title track comes next, which is an indie pop sound with copious volumes of tambourine which adds to the depth to an extent but the whole track doesn’t build much and it seems to end having gone nowhere extravagant.

The middle of the album seems to pass by tracks with no standouts until Goodbye, the fifth track on Collide By Design. The song holds a more funky drumbeat throughout and while the vocals here are all layered and well-crafted as elsewhere, the guitar solo is what differentiates this track. Its flare and confident style play over the drums and bass, which also happen to be some of the best parts on the album for both. Through the first two verses, the song builds to a chorus that holds some punch which remains to the end.

Fire and Rain is another track which has good promise, but just as the track starts to build to something exciting it breaks back down again. The dynamic between the louder sections and the quieter ones demonstrates the skill of the band as a whole, but the holding back sums up Colliding By Design well – close to something special yet lacking that fundamental “wow factor” to tip it over the edge.

Overall, an album that would provide good background music for documentaries and films yet as calm as it is this leads to a fairly bland piece in total. While there is some variation throughout, the songs sound largely the same and although this can be seen as a positive in some instances, this album lacks the substance needed for quality to be recreated. Not a bad album for a band who had nine years out of the game, but Colliding By Design is most definitely not Acceptance‘s strongest material.
