DAVID GILMOUR 'BETWEEN TWO POINTS' THE 2ND SINGLE FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM, FEATURING ROMANY GILMOUR ON LEAD VOCALS

 

‘Luck and Strange’ was recorded over five months in Brighton and London and is Gilmour’s first album of new material in nine years. The record was produced by David and Charlie Andrew, best known for his work with

ALT-J and Marika Hackman. 

 

The majority of the album’s lyrics have been composed by Polly Samson, Gilmour’s co-writer and collaborator

for the past thirty years. 

 

The album features eight new tracks, including a beautiful reworking of The Montgolfier Brothers’

‘Between Two Points’ as the second single.

 

 

Some contributions emerged from the live streams that Gilmour and family performed to a global audience during

the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021; Romany Gilmour sings, plays the harp and appears on lead vocals on

‘Between Two Points’. Gabriel Gilmour also sings backing vocals.

 

 Of working with his family on ‘Luck and Strange’, David says, “Polly and I have been writing together for over thirty years and the Von Trapped live streams showed the great blend of Romany’s voice and harp-playing and that led us into a feeling of discarding some of the past that I’d felt bound to and that I could throw those rules out and do whatever

I felt like doing, and that has been such a joy.” 

HALESTORM AND I PREVAIL SHARE EXPLOSIVE COLLABORATIVE TRACK "CAN U SEE ME IN THE DARK?"

 

 

"In celebration of our upcoming tour together, we joined forces with the boys of I Prevail and wrote an original song together," says Lzzy Hale. "'can u see me in the dark?' is written for our collective fan bases, our community, our family. We want you to know that you are seen and you are not alone shining through life’s myriad of joy and pain.

We can't wait to feast our eyes on you this summer!"

 

"We're excited to finally have a song come out,' says Vanlerberghe. "It was a fun challenge to blend the Halestorm and

I Prevail sounds together. We really focused on creating a music bed that felt very much I Prevail and letting Lzzy just shine and do what she does best. I feel we found a very sick way to blend the two identities of our bands into one massive song. I'm really looking forward to this tour and possibly playing this song live together for everyone."

EPICA'S SIMONE SIMONS RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO

FOR SECOND SOLO SINGLE "IN LOVE WE RUST"

 

Simone Simons of Epica fame has revealed the video for the second single to be taken from her debut solo album, Vermillion, which is set for release on August 23. Written alongside Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon),

the new single is titled "In Love We Rust".

 

Simone and Arjen comment: “The video was filmed in just one take to keep it as pure and raw as possible.

We opted to keep it in black and white so as not to distract from the song or the performance. 'In Love We Rust' is quite different from our first single 'Aeterna', which shows how diverse this album is.

This is one of our favorite songs. We hope you love this as much as we do.”

HAMMERFALL RELEASE "THE END JUSTIFIES" SINGLE AND MUSIC VIDEO

 

Heavy metal titans, HammerFall, are thrilled to announce the release of their electrifying new single,

"The End Justifies". This classic HammerFall anthem is the second single from their upcoming album,

Avenge The Fallen, set to be released on August 9 via Nuclear Blast Records.

 

"The End Justifies" captures the essence of HammerFall's signature sound, combining powerful riffs, soaring vocals, and a relentless rhythm that fans have come to love. The accompanying video, filmed in the band's rehearsal studio, brings an intense visual experience that matches the song's driving energy. Fast-paced camera movements and raw, unfiltered footage showcase the band's passion and dedication, creating an immersive experience for viewers.

FALLING IN REVERSE HAS SHARED THE VIDEO FOR "ALL MY LIFE" 

 

The track is described in a press release as "a twangy banger that will undoubtedly be the feel-good hit of the summer, thanks to its seamless blend of FALLING IN REVERSE's supremely catchy and in-your-face hard rock and Jelly Roll's down-to-earth charm and heartfelt country drawl." Bonding over their shared roots, modest upbringing and rebellious spirits, the collaboration between Ronnie Radke and Jelly Roll tells a story of resilience through the ups and downs of life. Southern-fried riffs, soaring guitar solos and singalong choruses make "All My Life" a crossover smash. 

NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS RELEASE NEW SINGLE "FROGS"

 

The journey to creating ‘Wild God’ began with sweeping epic ‘Frogs’. The first lines Nick Cave penned for the album were powerfully evocative, referencing the first murder in the Bible, Cain’s slaying of Abel.

He wrote, “Ushering in the week he knelt down and crushed his brother’s head in with a bone/It’s my great privilege to walk you home.” This striking couplet became the opening lines to the song, and set the tone for the imagery and themes that followed.

 

Nick Cave says, “The sheer exuberance of a song like ‘Frogs’, it just puts a big fucking smile on my face.” 

CAVALERA RELEASE ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE

"FROM THE PAST COMES THE STORMS"

 

Cavalera has become synonymous with extreme metal music, a name that to this day still holds the highest regard, a family legacy built upon decades of musical aggression. In 2023, Max and Iggor Cavalera achieved what some would say was an impossible feat; they revisited their earliest releases, Morbid Visions, and Bestial Devastation, and re-recorded them with bone-breaking intensity. A risk that few would dare to even attempt, yet they artfully and prolifically attained their trademark raw sound by means that could only be described as magic or time travel.

 

The band releases the pummelling second single, entitled "From The Past Comes The Storms".

Costin Chioreanu was once again enlisted to create the animated music video.

 

Max Cavalera states, "'From The Past Comes The Storms' is a ferocious album opener. It is a pioneer song using the ’80s metal movement’s mentality. I love the apocalyptic vision in Costin’s video, bringing the circle of life and death and war and pain. This is going to be a banger to play live!"

 

Iggor Cavalera comments, “’From The Past Comes The Storms’ was one of the first songs we wrote for schizophrenia, also included in a demo version. I love the rawness between the old school black/death metal influences mixed with thrash. The video illustrates the vibe of the song very well!”

GUESS WHO'S BACK?... EMINEM RELEASE NEW SONG "HOUDINI"

 

Rapper also shares video featuring cameos from Pete Davidson, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg,

while his track references Megan Thee Stallion.

 

And for his next trick... Eminem has revived his impish alter-ego Slim Shady for new track “Houdini”, the much-teased lead single from his forthcoming album, believed to be titled The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce).

 

The song, which harks back to the US rapper’s 2002 hit “Without Me”, is also accompanied by a music video featuring cameos from Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Pete Davidson, 50 Cent and comedian Shane Gillis

APOCALYPTICA RELEASE COVER OF METALLICA'S "ONE"

FEATURING JAMES HETFIELD AND ROBERT TRUJILLO

 

Finnish cello metal band, Apocalyptica, have released "One", the third single from their upcoming album,

Plays Metallica Vol. II, which will be out June 7.

 

"You will not believe this! It is such a big honor for us, we can’t even put it into words. Our next single will be

'One' - feat. Mr. James Hetfield and Robert Trujillo! Who would have thought, 30 years ago!.

We are 100% sure – it’s going to blow your mind!!"

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS RELEASE "BLOOD EMPRESS"

 

Canadian modern power metal icons, Unleash The Archers, recently announced the upcoming release of their massive sixth studio album, Phantoma, out on May 10.

 

Brittney Slayes of Unleash The Archers says about “Blood Empress”: "This was the last song that we wrote for the album and we wrote it together in our Airbnb while we were recording. We always like to save one song to write together in the studio to give a kind of snapshot of the headspace we were in while recording, and this one was a ton of fun.

We wanted to do a bit more of a radio rock track and have it be something simple that would be a blast to play live and potentially end the set with. The album story ends with Phantoma having destroyed both The Collective and the Human Council that once stood against her, but now she had all of robotkind and humankind looking to her for where to go next. We wanted the song to feel dark but also triumphant, and to hopefully be catchy enough to make the listener want to start the album all over again. The video was filmed once again by RuneGate Studio and they did an awesome job with finding a set that could parry between both the synthetic and the human sides of the story.

We all love this track in UTA and hope that you all can bang your heads to it too!" 

ANETTE OLZON PREMIERS "HEAR MY SONG"

 

Following in the footsteps of her critically acclaimed second solo album, Strong, Anette Olzon once again teams up with acclaimed Swedish guitarist and producer Magnus Karlsson to craft a musical experience that pushes boundaries and excites the senses. Together, they have curated a collection of songs that showcase Anette's unparalleled vocal range, complemented by Karlsson's masterful riffs and the addition of growls by Johan Husgafvel,

adding a dynamic layer to the album's sound.

 

Rapture seamlessly navigates through various musical genres, from symphonic to melodic power metal, with hints of melo-death, while maintaining an irresistibly catchy and melodious essence. Anette Olzon's performance on this album is her most versatile yet, proving her ability to evolve and innovate while staying true to her signature style.

 

Renowned mixer Jacob Hansen, known for his work with Pretty Maids, Volbeat, and The Dark Element,

returns to the fold to ensure that Rapture achieves the perfect balance between heaviness and hookiness, resulting in an album that is both impactful and memorable.
