Independent pop-punk band Talk Show Host debuted its latest single this week, along with the song’s companion video.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Blood in the Sand,’ Friday, along with the song’s video. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album, Mid-Century Modern, which is scheduled for release in June through Wiretap Records and Disconnect Disconnect Records. The album’s exact release date is under consideration.

The track listing for Mid-Century Modern is noted below.

‘Mid-Century Modern’ Track Listing:

1. U A$Shole!

2. Blood in the Sand

3. Crisis Actors

4. Warmest Condolences

5. Sorry, My Mistake

6. Syntax Error OK

7. Up to No Good

8. Too Many Problems

9. The Ballad of Jack Nance

10. Lame Duck

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Blood in the Sand’ is a catchy, up-tempo pop punk opus. The infectious choral element and guitar arrangement pair with the solid but simple time keeping to make for plenty of appeal. Fans of bands, such as Jimmy Eat World, New Found Glory, and The Dangerous Summer will especially enjoy this musical presentation. The song’s lyrical theme makes for its own interest.

Front man Chris Veinot discussed the song’s lyrical theme and its video during a recent interview.

“The lyrics recount the plot of a non-existent delinquent teen movie I dreamed about during a full moon, something from the mid-to-late 60s that could’ve been directed by Al Adamson or Ray Dennis Steckler,” he said. “The title doesn’t sound like what the song sounds like, but it was the name of the picture in the dream. We might have destroyed the fabric of space & time if we’d changed it, y’know?”

“The video has nothing to do with the song and everything to do with the fact that we are still under lockdown and all we have footage of is cats,” added Veinot. Sincere apologies to all the dog persons.

Harker Debuts New Single, ‘The Beast Must Die,’ Companion Video

Independent punk rock band Harker debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its single ‘The Beast Must Die’ Friday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album Axiom, which is scheduled for release April 23 through Wiretap Records. It will release through Disconnect Disconnect Records, Shield Recordings, and Fixing a Whole Records overseas.

The video for ‘The Beast Must Die’ is a simple presentation. It features two people demolishing a boom box through the use of a sledgehammer and baseball bat as the song plays over the simple visuals. The visuals are perhaps an artistic way to translate the theme behind the song’s lyrical content.

Front man Mark Boniface addressed the song’s lyrical theme during a recent interview.

“The Beast Must Die’ is based on the idea of ‘Mono-consciousness’ by English writer Colin Wilson – as a philosopher, Wilsons writing was heavily focused on striving to live with a heightened sense of meaning and avoiding a closed mindset,” said Boniface. “This track is a study of characters with a lack of empathy and spirituality, in the end leading to apathy for existence. ‘Mono-consciousness’ is a beast that lurks inside, and needs to be hunted before it takes control of us.”

The musical arrangement that accompanies the song’s lyrical content is just as simple in its approach as that taken to the song’s video. It is a garage-punk style work whose fuzzed guitars form its foundation.

‘The Beast Must Die’ is available to stream and download through Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp.

The beautiful Mistake debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘East of Eden‘ Wednesday.  The video, directed by Andy Lara features a man, played by Nathan Armstrong, out in a remote desert setting, seemingly searching for something along the way as he goes from one empty, dilapidated house to another.  It is not entirely clear what the man is searching for, though it seems that he is reliving the same scenario time and again.

The song’s musical content will appeal to fans of Underoath. Its lyrical content will generate its own share of interest.

‘East of Eden’ is featured on the band’s forthcoming EP You’re Not BrokenI Am along with the EP’s lead single ‘Memento Mori.’  The video for that song debuted Jan. 31.

You’re Not BrokenI Am is scheduled for release March 27 through Wiretap Records (USA) and Disconnect Disconnect Records (UK/EU).

The Beautiful Mistake is scheduled to perform live at the annual Furnace Fest in support of its new EP this fall at the annual Furnace Fest Sept. 18-20 in Birmingham, AL.

The band will join the likes of Andrew W.K., Hot Water Music and Norma Jean at the festival.
