Nothing More Debuts ‘Spirits’ Lyric Video

Courtesy: Better Noise Music

Nothing More premiered the video for its latest single over the weekend.

The band debuted the lyric video for its new single, ‘Spirits‘ Friday. The song is the title track from its forthcoming eponymous album and the record’s third single behind ‘Tired Of Winning‘ and ‘Turn It Up Like (Stand In The Fire)‘. The album is now scheduled for release Oct. 14 through Better Noise Music.

The musical arrangement featured in the new single is a heavy, aggro-rock style composition. The heaviness of the instrumentation pairs with the almost Maynard James Kennan-esque vocals to make the whole engaging and entertaining.

The song’s lyrical theme, which front man Johnny Hawkins addressed, is engaging in its own right.

“Isn’t it interesting that we give the same name to something holy and something wholly intoxicating?,” he said.  “The song ‘SPIRITS’ describes that very conundrum. When you drink liquor, it has been said that you are welcoming that pneuma (spirit) into your body. Most of us have seen and experienced how alcohol (or rather ‘al-ghawl,’ which means demon/spirit) can make us feel. It’s almost as if we turn into someone else when too much of the spirit has been consumed. Sometimes it’s eye opening and can lead to wondrous life-changing conversations or bonds that would never normally happen…and sometimes it can lead to the exact opposite. It may turn us into Dr. Hyde’s Jekyll and cause us to do or say horrific things we would never normally do sober. Spirits are both a little bit heavenly and a little bit sick.”

In other news, Nothing More also announced this week, a pending tour with In This Moment. The tour is scheduled to launch Aug. 26 and to run through Oct. 22. The tour includes a performance at the annual Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Louder Than Life festival, and Rocklahoma festival. The band recently wrapped another tour with Asking Alexandria June 19.

Nothing More Premieres New Single, ‘Tired Of Winning,’ Companion Video

Courtesy: Better Noise Music

Hard rock band Nothing More opened the weekend by premiering its latest single and the song’s companion video.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Tired Of Winning‘ Friday, along with the song’s video. The song and its predecessor, ‘Turn It Up Like (Stand In The Fire)‘ are expected for inclusion in the band’s next, as yet untitled album. The album’s title, release date and other information is all under consideration.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Tired Of Winning’ is grounded in its guitar line, which presents a distinct djent style approach. Alongside that djent style sound and approach is a more melodic hard rock sound that when blended with the noted element, makes the arrangement in whole a unique presentation that will certainly engage and entertain audiences.

According to information about the song, its lyrical theme presents a socially conscious theme. The theme in question is a rumination on the state of mankind, the information states.

Front man Johnny Hawkins said of the song’s lyrical theme, “We find ourselves in the same position humanity has found itself over and over again…at the end of a series of self-made problems,” he said. “When we wake up to this, we realize that we are our own worst enemy, yet we focus so much of our energy on externalizing our problems. This song is a bird’s eye view of human nature.”

The video for Nothing More’s new single features the band performing its new single on a specially list sound stage. It blends that with a rather paranormal style story that involves a man’s encounter with beings from another world.

In other news, Nothing More is scheduled to join Asking Alexandria on the road this spring and summer, starting May 13 in Kansas City, MO. The bands’ tour is scheduled to run through June 19 in Houston, TX and features performances in cities, such as Silver Spring, MD; Denver, CO and Phoenix, AZ.

Eternal Frequency Encourages Individualism In New Single, Video

Courtesy: TAG Publcity

Independent hard rock band Eternal Frequency debuted the video  for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Parasite‘ Friday.  The video, directed by Eric DiCarlo, features the band performing its new single in what is meant to reflect a semi-live setting.  That footage is crossed with various other images, such as a man spray painting a door (or wall).  The video culminates in the band facing a group of masked, hooded figures, which are the band members dressed in the garb.

The visuals are meant to help illustrate and translate the theme in the song’s lyrical content.  The band talked about that theme in a prepared statement.

“The meaning of ‘Parasite’ is to stand up for yourself and to relieve yourself of the poison infecting your life from outside sources,” the statement reads.  “You control you, and you alone.  No one has the power to manipulate or bring you down.  We all fall victim to letting toxicity eat us alive.  This song is about finding that antidote within yourself to survive.”

The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Parasite’ presents a familiar, catchy melodic hard rock sound that will find itself in good company on any mainstream active rock radio station’s programming list.  The song’s aggro-rock styling is easily comparable to works from the likes of The Veer Union, Three Days Grace and to a lesser extent, Nothing More.

‘Parasite’ was produced by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland of Atrium Audio.  The song is available to stream and download through Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and Google Play.

A portion of all proceeds from ticket sales for the festival will go toward aiding the Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund.  The Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund was established by Houston’s mayor Sylvester Turner in order to accept donations for flood relief in the Houston community.  This includes aiding victims of the flooding that stemmed from recent storms that hit the region.  More information on The Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund is available online at http://www.houstonrecovers.org.  Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents, spoke with the media recently.  He discussed the timing of the festival’s announcement in relation to the city’s recovery from said storms as well as the motivation for teaming with Mayor Turner in his recovery efforts.  “Houston Open Air has been in the works for almost a year now,” he said.  It’s awkward to announce a major music festival in a city that has experienced such recent hardship and, in fact, we delayed our announcements out of respect for what Houston has endured. But at the same time, our festivals are about highlighting the strengths (or sometimes the needs) of our host city. There’s no more important way to do that right now than to support Mayor Turner’s efforts to help Houston recover from this spring’s flooding and we will be incorporating this message throughout our launch campaign.”

Danny Wimmer is the founder of Danny Wimmer Presents.  He shared his thoughts on the logistics of the concert’s location, its lineup, and more in his discussion with the press.  “Houston is one of the country’s biggest rock markets and, when combined with the impressive food scene happening here, it’s a natural location for a DWP festival,” he said.  “We’re thrilled to have such a diverse first-year lineup that includes Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains and Chevelle. With the inclusion of an incredible food experience and the Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Row, we are kicking off a powerhouse experience that will live in the market for many years to come!”

Baltimore, Maryland’s own Silvertung will play a huge hometown show this summer.

Silvertung has been tapped to play the main stage at this year’s annual Shindig Music Festival. The festival will be held this year on September 19th at Carroll Park in Baltimore, Maryland. Interestingly enough the day-long festival actually features not one but two identical main stages. There will be NO OVERLAPPING SETS between the two stages. Godsmack will headline one of the stages while fellow veteran rock band Stone Temple Pilots will headline the other. Also on the bill for this year’s Shindig Music Festival are: Anthrax, Chevelle, Helmet, Reverend Horton Heat, Nothing More, and Crobot among others. More information on the lineup for this year’s Shindig Music Festival is available online along with all of the festival’s latest news at:
