Fair Do’s Debuts New Single, ‘1,000 Miles,’ Companion Video

Independent hardcore punk band Fair Do’s unveiled its new single and its companion video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘1,000 Miles‘ and its video Wednesday. The song opens with a vintage speed metal style guitar riff before turning to a more skate punk style approach and sound. Interestingly enough, the two styles and sounds are well balanced as opposite as they are of one another. The combination gives audiences hints of influences from the likes of Death By Stereo, Protest The Hero, and Propagandhi.

The press release announcing the premiere of the band’s new single and video did not make note of the song’s lyrical theme. The song’s video did not include lyrics. From what little can be deciphered sans lyrics, the song comes across as something of a deeply contemplative work.

The ‘1,000 Miles’ was recorded in the engine room of the Leigh Heritage Centre in Essex, England. The black and white video features the band in the clearly cold room as the band members’ breaths can be seen throughout the intensely energetic visualization.

Independent punk rock band Bring On The Storm is taking on a serious mental health issue in its new single and video.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Decompose‘ and its video Jan. 22 through Thousand Islands Records. The song’s musical arrangement lends itself to comparison to works from Propagandhi, A Wilhelm Scream, and Strung Out. That is evidenced through its upbeat energy and harmonies.

Front man Chris Kreuger talked about the song’s lyrical message in a prepared statement.

“This tune is about an invisible monster that burdens and even sometimes takes life away,” he said. “We all know victims. We’ve named the monster depression.”

The video for ‘Decompose’ was shot at Ill Fated Kustoms in Calgary, Alberta, with Alan Bremner handling filming and editing duties. The video features the band in the shop performing its new single. Various camera angles and lighting effects are used to ensure audiences’ engagement and entertainment.

Grand Collapse Premieres New LP’s Second Single; Maps Out New Live Dates

Independent hardcore band Grand Collapse premiered its latest single last week.

The band premiered its sociopolitically charged song ‘Without Let or Hindrance‘ July 21. The song is the second from the band’s forthcoming album, Empty Plinths. The album the band’s third) is scheduled for release Aug. 6 through Epidemic Records, TNS Records, Don’t Trust The Hype Records, Mass Prod., and Ultra Vinyl. The album’s lead single, ‘Panic Room,’ was released July 20.

The song’s intense musical arrangement is an adrenaline-fueled composition whose guitar arrangement, heavy bass and drums, and powerhouse vocals collectively makes the song comparable to works from the likes of ‘Propagandhi, Conflict, and Bane.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement is just intense in its commentary about certain policies held by the British government.

Front man “Calvin” talked about the song’s theme during a recent interview.

“On the inside of a British passport it reads: “Her Britannic Majesty’s sectary of state requests and requires in the Name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance, and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.” For a Country that is so actively hostile to anyone coming here, including refugees, I find this statement astounding,” he said. British identity, which is steeped in Empire, is a pathetic shell of itself and watching these tossers hold on desperately to the tyranny of the past is cringe worthy.

In other news, Grand Collapse has scheduled a series of tour dates in support of its new album. The tour is scheduled to launch Aug. 14 in Bristol, UK and to run through Sept. 22 in Sunderland, UK. Another, later date is scheduled for Nov. 13 in Newport, UK.
