In This Moment Release New Track ‘Roots’

With their forthcoming sixth album on the horizon, In This Moment have released another new song from Ritual. The track titled Roots is a dark track full of bitter sass and anger. The video gives off a Blair Witch vibe with the shaky camera work and setting. Check it out below:

Of the upcoming album the band had this to say:
“It’s like we’re going into the next realm, I had a conviction of feeling empowered in my life and with myself.  I always write from a personal place, and I needed to share that sense of strength.  I’ve never been afraid to hold back.  Sometimes, I can be very suggestive.  However, I wanted to show our fans that this is the most powerful side of myself and it’s without overt sexuality.  It’s that deeper serious fire inside of my heart.” – Christina Brink, vocals.
“When fans hear this, I want them to feel the music, whether they take away sadness, anger, or happiness, as a kid, I remember listening to records and putting them on repeat over and over again. I’d love for the world to listen and absorb this as a piece of work.” – Chris Howorth, lead guitar.

Of their success with their recent release, the band had the following to say:

“For an awful band like Alestorm, that’s incredibly impressive, and it’s higher than anything we’ve ever achieved before! Thank you to everyone who bought an album and made this possible! Oh yeah, the coolest thing about this is, we charted higher than the new Shakira album, and she’s an international pop sensation! Does this mean we’ll be doing the theme tune for the next FIFA World Cup? Maybe. Does this mean we’ll dress in leather bikinis and record a cover of ‘Whenever, Wherever’? Definitely.“

CKY Release New Track ‘Head For A Breakdown’

With their album The Phoenix being released at the end of the week, CKY have dropped a new track from it, titled Head For a Breakdown. Check it out below:

“Head for a Breakdown’ seemed to write itself, in a sense, it’s a song about taking things too far when you darn right know it won’t end well but you do it anyway. Go figure. The mid solo section is an epic break unlike any we have done in the past. Very proud of this song.” – Chad I Ginsburg, vocals/guitar
