Demon Hunter Premieres New Single, ‘Ash’

Demon Hunter premiered another new single from its new album War this week.

The band debuted the song ‘Ash’ at Loudwire’s official website on Thursday.  Demon Hunter front man Ryan Clark said of the song, that it is a reminder that things are just things.

“‘Ash’ is a no frills, anthemic onslaught, berating our infatuation with fleeting possessions,” Clark said in the article at Loudwire.  “It’s a reminder to myself as much as anyone else.  I collect pretty much everything I couldn’t afford as a kid: skateboards, shoes, artwork, antiques…you name it.  And I love this stuff.  Still, I know I can’t ‘take it with me’ as they say.”

Clark added, “In classic Demon Hunter fashion, we wanted to ensure that War had at least one faster thrash number in the gates of ‘Storm the Gates of Hell,’ ‘Crucifix’ or ‘The World is a Thorn.’  ‘Ash’ is the resident barn burner track for this album.  This was the last song that we’d written for the heavier of these two records, and is the only song written by Patrick, Jeremiah and myself.

The debut of ‘Ash’ came only three days after the band debuted the video for another single from War, ‘On My Side.’

Nonpoint Debuts ‘Wheel Against Will’ Video

Courtesy: Spinefarm Records

Nonpoint released its latest music video this week.

The band debuted the video for its latest single ‘Wheel Against Will‘ on Wednesday. The song is the fourth single to be released from the band’s new album X since the album’s release on Aug. 24 via Spinefarm Records.

The band debuted the album’s first two singles, ‘Chaos & Earthquakes‘ and ‘Dodge Your Destiny‘ in June. The album’s third single ‘Fix This‘ debuted only weeks later in July via Loudwire, while the official video for ‘Chaos & Earthquakes’ followed in August.

The new ‘Wheel Against Will’ video places the up-tempo opus and its seeming sociopolitical commentary against a visualization of the band at work in the studio.  Mixed into the video is footage of front man Elias Soriano up close and personal reciting the song’s lyrics while friends recite the song’s chorus and drummer Robb Rivera practices his part in what looks like a hotel room.

Eagle-eyed audiences will note Rivera sporting a Machine Head pullover in some of the scenes as a bonus of sorts.  It is not known if these scenes were shot before or after Machine Head announced its breakup over the summer.

Nonpoint is currently wrapping its tour with P.O.D., which is touring in support of its own new album, Circles.  The remaining live dates on the bands’ tour are noted below.

NONPOINT ON TOUR:
12/11: Lynchburg, VA @ Phase 2
12/12: Greensboro, NC @ Cone Denim
12/14: Destin, FL @ Radio Show Club LA

Lullwater Takes Audiences Back To The 90s With New Pearl Jam Cover

Independent rock band Lullwater is taking Pearl Jam fans back in time with a video for its cover of Peal Jam’s classic song ‘Release.’

The original song was included in Pearl Jam’s debut 1991 record Ten.  Lullwater’s take on the song was recorded at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, Washington.  The video, which premiered via Loudwire, features the band performing with Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox) and Kevin Martin (Candlebox).

Lullwater front man John Strickland discussed the band’s take on the song in a recent interview, saying recording and performing the song is something special for him.

“The entire process of recording Pearl Jam’s ‘Release’ in London Bridge Studios was so surreal,” Strickland said.  “Pearl Jam is one of my favorite bands, and to cover that in one song in the same room as they did, was very emotional for me.  I had no idea that a couple of years later we would be performing it live with Dave Krusen and Kevin Martin on the Candlebox tour; it’s such an odd and incredible feeling of living and experiencing the moments we’ve made because of ‘Release,’  It’s by far the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me as a musician.  Thinking back to when I was in my adolescent years playing that song over and over and then one day to be performing it live with the original drummer, i simply crazy for me.  ‘Release’ has a special place in my heart and is one of my favorite songs to play live.”

Lullwater’s next album Voodoo is expected to be released in Winter 2018.  More information on that is available online now along with all of Lullwater’s latest news and more at:

Small Town Titans Breathes New Life Into ‘Grinch’ With New Single

Courtesy: TAG Publicity

Small Town Titans is giving audiences a “grinchy” new present this holiday season.

The York, PA-based band recently debuted the video for its take on the classic movie tune ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch,’ which features the band performing the song in a dimly lit studio setting. The band’s take on this holiday standard is easily one of the most standout takes on the work that has ever been composed, and perhaps the best take on the song to date because of its ability to truly capture the essence of the Grinch before he turned good.

The band originally debuted the video, which was recorded at Springwood Productions, via Loudwire on Dec. 1. Audiences can see the band’s video and hear the song now here and via Patreon, a direct to fan social media platform on which fans can donate to videos’ creation and in turn have their names noted in the videos’ credits.  Audiences can also download the single now here.

Drummer Johnny Ross said of the band’s take on the song that the band had performed it in the past, adding that those performances played at least partly into this arrangement’s creation.

“We wanted to do something different for the holiday season this year, so we decided to revisit ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” a tune that we had covered for holiday shows in the past,” Ross said. “Other than the Misfits, We really haven’t heard a rock band of any kind cover this song. We rearranged our take on it together and created a dark, bluesy, sinister version, and we are very proud of the result, captured live in the studio.”
