Collapsing Scenery Announce Debut EP + UK Tour Dates

Starting out as a think-tank music and art project by the meeting of two fertile and febrile minds, Collapsing Scenery began their mission in LA warehouses and basements spreading their dark and noisy electronic sound to those in the know. This week they stream Metaphysical Cops, the lead single from their debut UK EP, God’s Least Favorite scheduled for release on Metropolitan Indian Records on September 23rd.

The band are comprised of NYC guitarist Don De Vore (ex-Ink & Dagger & The Icarus Line), LA vocalist Reggie Debris and new recruit, ex-Albert Hammond Jr. collaborator Chris Colley. In a genre often lacking in lyrical bite, theirs is electro music with meaning and purpose. It flexes the head as well as the heart

“It’s a comparative examination of two modes of so-called spiritual communion, one based in love and truth, and the other in fear and violence,” explains Debris. “We recorded the track in complete darkness wearing military issue night vision goggles on a ranch in rural Texas.”

Playing their debut shows in London and Paris last month, Collapsing Scenery will return to the UK later this month for a short run of dates.

Stream the single Metaphysical Cops on Soundcloud here.

Firewind Reschedule UK Tour Due To Them Recording A New Album

Power Metal legends Firewind which includes legendary guitarist Gus G, have changed a status update of their activities, this includes rescheduling their UK tour and plans to record their 8th studio album.

Gus G has commented stating

“Hi everyone!

We feel it’s time to give you an update on what’s happening in our world. For the past few months we’ve been busy composing our 8th album and this week we finally entered the studio to start recording! We’re super excited about it, as this is our first recording in 4 years, plus this will be our first album with our new singer Henning Basse (who should not be a stranger to our fans by now). We’ve entered Noise Factory Studios in Belgium this week with producer/engineer Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69, Krokus, etc.) to track drums and it’s sounding huge already!

As the schedule is pretty hectic for the next few months with recordings, finalizing everything, etc. we feel we need time to have a proper setup for the album release and give it the attention it deserves. Therefore, we have decided to postpone our UK/European club dates to early 2017. All dates are there and we’ve even added an extra UK show in Southampton and one more in Strasbourg, France. Moreover, we will have Sweden’s Manimal as special guests, as well as Greece’s Scar Of The Sun opening the shows. Tickets already purchased are still valid for the re-scheduled dates. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but we promise it’ll be worth the wait!

Our summer festival appearances are still on and we’ll be revealing more info on the new album as we go along!”

Due to this Firewind’s UK tour reads as:
15th February 2017 – Audio, Glasgow
16th February 2017 – Academy 3, Manchester
17th February 2017 – Corporation, Sheffield
18th February 2017 – Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton
19th February 2017 – Underworld, London
21st February 2017 – Engine Rooms, Southampton

Support comes from Manimal and Scar Of The Sun
