Modern day heavy rockers THE LAST ELEMENT have 14 single's out thus far, with much more newer music in the works! Aside from that though, they have a whole lot of other things planned and in the works too. The band discusses all of this matter and much more.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The Last Element originated around 2017 in this line up. Nick, Jan and Robert have played together for approximately 6 years before they formed The Last Element with Jasper and Noah. 

Each of us had experience with other bands and projects. Jan and Robert have the most experience with touring, recording bands and the business, while Noah, Jasper and Nick make sure there is a good balance for the new, now and the current business. Together we make a great team! 

When we started making music together we glued together quickly and created our own signature in songs and sound. We started practicing for live sets, did gigs and recorded a lot of songs! Without a doubt, for all of us, this is the best line-up we've ever been in.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We were searching for a way to explain the driving factor behind our band, our music has always been very close to our hearts, we write about things that really matter to us, but that we believe also really matter to a lot of people. We were searching for a way to explain what could combine the elements of, hardship, love, trust, friendship and perseverance. That's when we decided all of these combined could be seen as: The Last Element – When we are together, we are stronger!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based in The Netherlands. Part of the band lives in Amsterdam - capital city of the Netherlands - and the other part lives more to the south. The Netherlands have a big music scene and are responsible for some of the biggest export products in music, both in EDM and the heavy rock/metal scene. At the moment the live scene is obviously pretty poor though, because of the whole Corona crisis. Before Corona there was plenty of live music, but the majority of the live slots were taken by names that had been around the block for ages. We hope that when the crisis is over new bands that are more than ready to join will also get the exposure that's needed to survive as a band.

4. How would you describe your style?

This is always a hard question to answer. We just wanna say we sound like The Last Element. We believe we have quite an original sound. We did work very hard and are still polishing to make every release sound exciting and new.

All musicians get inspired and as we have quite an interesting mix of ages in this band, the influence is very broad. Each member also has some particular favorites. This all kinda combined into a modern rock/metal vibe. Some call us Core, some call us Nu-metal. We think it's all fine, we just want people to find out for themselves and connect with us and our music. 

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We've released 14 singles so far, we believe most of them can easily be recognized as The Last Element. Melodic, heavy, energetic songs, loaded with heartfelt lyrics that give a strong feeling of recognition, no matter where you’re from. We mean every vocal line and every note, to (hopefully) give our music an authentic feel. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Oh, do we... We've got so much more! We're working on new songs every day. We’re constantly writing new stuff, even when we’re focusing on polishing our next release. So, our next release in a few months will most likely be coupled with the writing of 2-3 new songs behind the scenes. ;)

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We are ready to play shows. We have done quite some interesting shows and support acts in the past with The Last Element and we are ready to continue where we left off before Corona kicked in.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We are planning out a lot of things. We’re working hard on the next step in our sound, which we will unveil with our next single. Furthermore, we are working on a lot of things that will define us more. We want people to really get to know us; what we stand for. It's never just about writing songs and having fun, we believe there is so much more to be found in our music. We want people to really feel what we are all about, why we do what we do and hopefully join us on our journey. We want to connect with our fans, see that the story we tell is not just ours, it's everyone's, make difficult subjects easier to talk about, deal with sad emotions and realize we are not alone. We are one, all of us and our fans and everyone interacting with our band are part of us, The Last Element.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Everywhere, we are played a lot on different radio stations who support us by playing our latest singles. Spotify is a big support to us as well. All our songs are on there and they've added some of our songs to the biggest metal playlists, for which we are so grateful. We are on YouTube, Pandora, Deezer, everything. Also all of this can be found in one central place --> www.thelastelement.net.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

What it meant, why we made it and hopefully how it resonates with them. We're sure we've all been through difficult stuff. It’s okay to be sad, angry or whatever, but remember that there is always a hand to hold on to. If our music can be that hand, then we'll keep on reaching for you.


Midwestern band MOTEL BREAKFAST have two releases under their belts, a debut album and a follow-up EP, both released within 2020! But that won't stop them from writing and having all new tracks for future content as well! The band talks about a whole lot more from the chat below!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.  

Mick and I started playing together as a more folk-oriented two-piece in 2014 when we were both finishing high school. We met Jesse and Conor within the next year, and by the end of 2016 we got together to form as a 4-piece band. We named ourselves "Motel Breakfast" in Fall 2017 and released our debut EP that December. Drue officially joined us in mid-2018 after a few months of playing live with us, and since then the 5 of us have been working together to bring the best sounds out of ourselves and our songs.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?  

We wanted a name that sounded cool but didn't take itself too seriously. And we wanted it to be easily searchable on the internet. After some months of tossing ideas around, "Motel Breakfast" came out as the winner.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?  

We consider the band to be "local" to all three cities our members call home: Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison. Since Motel Breakfast formed we've had members split between these cities, and we've spent a lot of time being members of each local scene. Each city has different flares; the Wisconsin cities can be fun because of how much smaller and more intimate the scenes are. Chicago has a lot more of an expansive music scene, but it still feels surprisingly intimate and welcome; a big city with a small scene feeling. Some great bands to check out from Wisconsin are Sleepy Gaucho (he actually produced the album we put out in February), Dogbad, and Luke McGovern. In Chicago we have a lot of friends from the southside scene where we grew up who are some of our favorite bands and people: The Dead Bolts, Uncle Sexy & the Nephews, Pat Egan & The Heavy Hearts, South City Revival, Railway Gamblers, Flying J & The Dripsters...just to name a few. Many of those bands were actually part of a music festival we put on in the Fall of 2019 with The Dead Bolts!

4. How would you describe your style?  

Someone called us "speakeasy Americana" one time. Let's go with that.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?  

Well we've put out two projects in 2020: our debut album ("Motel Breakfast", released in February) and a follow-up EP ("Left on Deming", released in October). Those are the best places to start - those 17 songs capture the current state of the band the best. If you have interest in hearing where we've come from, you can check out our debut EP "Weekends & Holidays" and the singles "Faceless / You & Me", but those are not as representative of who we are as a unit. Those first 2 releases were important for learning about making music and how to create with each other, but it didn't feel like we had our artistic direction figured out until we recorded the album late last year. 

 6. Do you have any new music in the works?  

Oh yea. We're sitting on a lot of unreleased songs and we're super excited about what our future music is shaping up to be. But we don't have any concrete plans for when or how those will be released just yet. It's mostly in the demo phase.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?  

Unfortunately no. We wish we could. As soon as the pandemic is over and live music returns, we will be booking lots of shows to make up for lost time.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?  

It's tough to say because the pandemic has really thrown a wrench into our ability to make plans and work towards them. It's very hard to be an independent rock band working on your future when you can't play live shows. So the big plans are to keep writing and demoing music so that we can return to the stage with our best work yet.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?  

You can stream Motel Breakfast everywhere that music is available digitally. Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud, you name it and we're on it. If you're interested in buying some physical music or merch, check out our bandcamp page (motelbreakfast.bandcamp.com).

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?  

I want a listener to remember the melody. If we get stuck in your head after your first listen, then the odds are pretty good you're going to want to come back and listen some more.

 


Metal mainstays, recording artists Butcher Babies today release the music video for their new single, “Bottom Of A Bottle”.

The new music video premiered exclusively with Alternative Press who said, “It’s a powerful and ultimately very personal ode to pain and past relationships that speaks of drinking to forget and hoping the hangover keeps the memories at bay a little while longer.”

The video features footage collected over the past decade. The visuals include footage that fans will vibe on including BB on tour, recording, partying, and enjoying life in a band. The song and video “Bottom Of A Bottle” marks the next step for this seasoned band. The sound is a departure from the band’s extreme metal sound but yet borrows elements from that signature and builds on it creating a new breath of fresh air for fans. 

Heidi Shepherd tells Alternative Press, "The way I see it, there’s nothing like sitting with your best friend and spewing your wildest hopes and dreams over some drinks.  Heck, that’s how Carla and I decided to go all-in on this roller coaster. There are those moments where you just need someone to talk to, whether it’s your best friend, your family, or that guy at the end of the bar. During the writing process, I was feeling particularly lonely. In a way, stuck. I think we all were. We were having a hard time feeling motivated or inspired. So we sat down, poured a drink, and watched the sun go down. In that exact moment, with my best friends, that’s all I needed, the inspiration was right with me. I started pouring my emotions onto paper and voilà! A song was born."

Co-frontwoman Carla Harvey continues, “Pain and hurt are inevitable in life, and sometimes it’s you who hurts you, and that’s the absolute worst and calls for the most extreme reaction, in this case guzzling some whiskey. . When it comes to “Bottom Of A Bottle,” I think the pain stemmed more from a time when all of us in the band were feeling like we didn’t know what was next for Butcher Babies. It felt like our career was in a weird limbo, and that it could all implode at any moment. I think we’re over that melancholy hump… But hey, we’ll still drink about it!"

The most recent and last time seeing Escape The Fate occurred back in the fall of 2018, when the band did their brief "This War Is Ours 10 Year Anniversary Tour", where their sophomore album, featuring new singer Craig Mabbit was performed in full swing on said tour. That was an unforgettable night, it wouldn't be for two years would Escape The Fate be seen live again at least by me. This time around though, things would be a whole lot different. As in the fall of 2019 the corona virus A.K.A. covid-19 would creep into the lives of many, striking down come the next year in 2020, where all live entertainment would somewhat cease to exist.....

Escape The Fate did shy away from performing due to this pandemic crisis, taking time to write and record all new material for their next album, also scheduling in some time to do a live online stream for all to see across the globe. This taking place in the fall of 2020 via Lit Live their live stream performance being held indoors in their own provided stage, capturing the essence of a real concert with lights, fog, smoke, the works! Whilst there was some confusion among the fan base and media with MST VS. PST time, some may have missed some if not all of the band's performance but to those that did capture it, the tracks the band went on to play would include such as "The Flood", "Something", "One For The Money", "This War Is Ours (The Guillotine II)", a good amount being off their sophomore release, with later releases as well, including recent and newest single’s "Invincible" and “Walk On”. Throughout the performance there was some delay in loud and low quality from the audio provided. With other moments having their frontman Craig perform his screaming antics rather nicely at times, he did fail on some moments as well, including "The Flood". During the performance the band did interact with the live stream viewers, noticing the chat room as fans talked to the band live! Giving numerous shout outs to family, friends, and other loved one's of course too.



Having seen Escape The Fate a handful of times over the years, including this live stream segment, their performance this night was a good setlist with a performance to back it up, that had some minor lacking quality at times from band and gear, but did bring the live presents in some way that all could enjoy from the comfort of their own living spaces. Perhaps just perhaps, the band will do another live stream performing one of their many albums front to back as they did with at least one a few years back….

THE DAYLIGHT ORANGE is a little it of everything really. With that the band has released a recent track titled "Squeaky Little Disco", with much more time to write and record newer working's soon enough. There is so much more the band has to say about themselves and the music they create as well.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The Daylight Orange has been a revolving door of collaborators for sometime now but it’s beating heart from the start has predominantly been Dan & Matt. We’ve been writing & recording for years since we started experimenting with old 4-tracks plugged together and doing mini-disc remixes for friends. We moved around a bit & I went to London to cut my teeth & do the band thing playing dive bars & the University circuit for a few years which was a lot of fun and got me into a lot of trouble. We reconvened a few years later and hit on an idea to run a bar in a bid to stop hemorrhaging cash on nights out…the bar had to have a rehearsal space and be sympathetic to late night noise & that’s where we fanned the flame for The Daylight Orange & how we ran into Andy. This man hit’s a hard drum and could hold his drink so after a few demos had been passed around we settled in to the rehearsal room in the early hours and it all clicked. We’ve also got a new recruit on Bass called Matt Hombre. He’s a demon & we’ve known him for years but have always been in different bands. Good timing this time. I mean a lot of people play with a lot of different musicians, but when it’s right & you’re buzzing off it and you know you’ve got a little bit of magic…..You’re lucky.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Ha. I’ve always liked a “The” in a band name so that part was easy. We’d just got out of the sea after a few hours surfing in a place called Putsborough in North Devon. Late Evening. Exhausted. Elated. Summer vibes flowing. The sun was low in the sky and the whole place was alight and bathed in this beautiful Orange filter. Band name sorted : The Daylight Orange.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We’re still based in The South West. I’ve moved out into the sticks not too far from Exeter, Devon. Matt keeps moving as close to the sea as possible to get a dawn patrol surf in & Andy is taking time out in Athens at the moment. The South West is super creative in all the arts and the music scene is testament to that. We’ve got The Cavern Club in Exeter, The Phoenix, as well as some decent large venues and more festivals than you can shake a stick at too! If I had to recommend a decent local band….We used to gig a lot with a local three piece who called themselves “Rocket Baby Dolls” at the time. They back combed hair and rocked some heavy eyeliner…..they go by the name “Muse” now. You should check them out if you haven’t heard of them !

4. How would you describe your style?

Heavy Pop destroyers ? Stoner Pop ? We try to join the dots between 60s Psychedelia,70s bar soaked blues and a dose of 90s Indie for good measure. Itchy grooves that get under your skin like a good carpet burn you know ? I think it’s the sort of music that sounds good in a pair of headphones that is just a little  too loud and they start to rattle your balance a bit.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We put out a handful of DIY recordings which got played on BBC Introducing and luckily got on the radar of The Animal Farm Studios in London where we recorded three songs last summer. The most recent release being “Squeaky Little Disco”. We need to sell off the remainder of our record collections and get some more studio time booked ASAP. Expect Heavy drums, Backwards guitars, Bits of Piano in your hair and choruses that will either break your heart or give you the strength of ten bears.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Thanks to the unfortunate turn of events the world over if anything positive has come from lockdown it’s having the time to focus on writing, recording, trying new ideas out and dusting off old analog synth’s to plug guitars in for wonky frequencies. Yeah we’ve got some great ones in the bag that need to see the light of day yesterday…

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Such a bummer as we were really geared up for promoting these songs after we recorded them. We were hungry for it and match fit. We were looking forward to playing some festival dates so much. Every musician and everybody that is part of the music industry is hanging on my the tips of their fingers right now and will all come out fighting. Can you imagine all the new music and fire that will hit the streets when we’re allowed to play live in venues again. It’s going to be massive. It’s going to be as good as it ever was. X 10.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We need to get back in the studio as soon as humanly possible and play live music loud shortly after that. Complete vinyl fiends as well so we need to get some Daylight pressed in the very near future. Expect an album. We’ve got a session to record for BBC Introducing coming up so that’s as close as we’re going to get for awhile I think.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

All major platforms. Available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Soundcloud to stream or you can go retro and buy the single too!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Think I’d like the listener to forget where they are for a few minutes and escape and get lost in our Stoner Pop bubble. At loud volume obviously!


Early 90's sounding band SUBLIMINAL LANDMINES have captured the essence of the past, to create a style that is familiar yet fresh. They have an array of content out currently, with the band writing all new music to be released sometime in the future. Like many bands this one hopes to head out and play shows once the time permits, otherwise they plan to just make more music as it see's fitting to them. The band goes into chatter about all of this and then some.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

We started in 2017 from Grant going around Lafayette posting fliers for a drummer and a bassist needed for a punk band. Found both and went for a solid year after and released a demo album. After that the original bassist, Eric, left and moved to Portland, Oregon and Tony had to leave because of personal reasons. Found a new bassist (Tucker) and new drummer (Lee) and wrote a new EP and played shows throughout 2019 and then Tucker left because of personal reasons so then we had to find another bassist. It hit Lee and Grant pretty hard but then Chris came around and we spent the year writing recording, and releasing our first full length album because we couldn't play any shows this year (Covid-19). All 3 of us have been playing instruments since we were young and now that we are older, we still love to do it and get involved with our fans. We know we aren't the best but we all just want to have fun and make music that people want to hear.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

So the band name originated in the many vast thoughts that your mind goes through when trying to think of a band name. So Grant always writes songs with a message in it, so that's where the Subliminal part comes into play. Our goal is to blow everyone's mind with our messages and our music so that's where the Landmines part kicks in. Put both of them together and you get Subliminal Landmines. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based out of Lafayette, Louisiana in the United States and the music scene down here is mainly hardcore metal or very cajun and indie music. It's definitely not the city for Punk music even though we originated here but that can change! If there were any bands that I would recommend from this area it would have to be Ole English and The Posts. They both kick some major ass.

4. How would you describe your style?

Our style is more like an early 90's grunge/skate punk sound. We get compared a lot to early 90's Green Day or even Rancid which is pretty accurate considering who our influences are.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far, we have a Self Recorded demo, an Ep, and a full length studio album out right now. The quality of the self recorded demo isn't the greatest but when you listen to the EP and the album, get ready to get your mind racing and rock the fuck out. Some of the songs can get emotional but for the most part we like to throw down and get crazy and it shows through our songs.

6.  Do you have any new music in the works?

Currently Grant and Chris are writing new music on their own time and we plan to record it at some point but we just released a full length album so we  plan to promote it and play it throughout the states next year. We do plan on maybe releasing an EP sometime next year though. (;

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

When it comes to tours and shows, Covid-19 kind of ruined that for us but it gave us a chance to write the album. Next year we plan to tour throughout some of the states where we can get a gig scheduled depending on the rules and laws bars and venues have because of the virus.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

When it comes to the future as a band, we just plan to make more music, play more shows, sell more merch and help everyone realize one step at a time that it's ok to do what you love and be yourself, It doesn't matter what people think. We don't plan to separate or slow down anytime soon.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our music is available for streaming on Spotify, Deezer, and YouTube. And you can purchase it on Bandcamp, Apple Music, and Reverbnation (and etc).

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

If we had to choose what people remembered the most when hearing our music for the first time, it would have to be the nostalgia behind it. Take them back to the past when things were more simple and new. Not necessarily be the same but give them the old school vibe that we all grew up on and get them back listening to the type of music that they used to. Life is stressful these days and we all know we love to reminisce on the goode ole days. 


Melodic heavy metallers EDEN ECHO have their debut EP out with their follow-up full-length debut expected by the end of this year 2020! They want to become a world class heavy metal band and play shows as soon as possible! With that, the band discusses a lot about their time together and the music they have made together too.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

We began out of a mutual obsession (Between our Drummer Ty and Guitar/Vocalist Matt) with the heavy metal and rock legends like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin… almost three years have passed since then and now we’re well on our way to carving out a sound of our own novel design.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Eden Echo is named after a song by one of Matt’s (Guitar/Vocals/Lyrics) most beloved artists/records, but that’s all I’d like to say about that, I highly recommend anyone interested look for themselves! 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Out of Kelowna, BC, Canada… We are so proud and thankful of our small, but integral metal scene, I’d be proud to recommend bands like Pharm, Apollyon, Arkenfire, Living Machines and I could go on! 

4. How would you describe your style?

Melodic Heavy Metal, its really a blend of our varied tastes and preferences… We’ve got heavy guitars, retro-inspired drumming and plenty of melodic vocals, harsh vocals, progressive elements. Mostly its about creating something at once dark, powerful and beautiful.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’ve released our 4-song EP “Kingdom in the Shadow”, by the end of 2020 we’ll have released our debut LP “Hourglass” across all platforms, listeners can expect a dramatic improvement across all dimensions! 

6. Do you have any new music in the works? 

(N/A).

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

For the time being, like most others we are on hold but as soon as circumstances allow we plan to make great strides in this area.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

To become a world class heavy metal band of course.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Across all platforms and soon from our website www.edenechoband.com.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

A sense of awe, meaning, wonder and magic.


Having been together since forming back in 2014, Czech rock band CORPULENT PROVOCATEUR have their debut album out, with a couple of single's out as well, including an all new single released recently with new material in the works too! Besides that the band hopes to play shows and tour the world sooner or later! The band expresses themselves so much in the chat below.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Three years ago, Josef (lead singer, guitarist) and Jiří (bass player) already had a band, but their drummer decided to leave. So Josef called Tomáš, a drummer he knew from other bands, and kidnapped him out of town. Tomáš was confused, but on receipt of a can of beer and a demo of unreleased songs set to maximum volume, he answered the simple question of "Will you be our drummer or what?“ with a resounding "Yes" and that was it.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The name is based on the name of the shop for fat cowboys in the episode of Simpsons, where Homer is the artist manager of a country singer.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are from the Czech Republic. We live in Pardubice, which is a hundred kilometers from Prague. The music scene around here is pretty cool. There are some talented young bands, like The Atavists and The MayRevolution.

4. How would you describe your style?

Alt rock trio with rapid funk rhythms and a grunge badge printed deep inside. 

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have one self-released album from 2017. For the current releases we teamed up with The Animal Farm Music in London, where we recorded 4 singles with producers Ville Leppanen and Craig Smith. Three of the singles are currently out, supported by music videos. The fourth, called Test, is out soon. The video is out now! https://youtu.be/kfMFhERwDfo.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, sure. We are constantly working on new material.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Due to the current situation it is not possible. We tour a lot in Central Europe, but all our shows were cancelled. It sucks, because we were to be touring in England this autumn, as well. Neverminded. We'll keep working on the music and looking forward to shows hopefully in a short time.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

In a few years we want to have a world tour with some cool support bands like Foo Fighters, Chili Peppers or Pearl Jam....

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find us on any streaming platform, like Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music. https://open.spotify.com/artist/26Jh5meWg5eDOUSWBXN8Cv?si=eBZeRIxmQyamFMWG1LPN7w.

Swing by on Facebook to say hi! https://www.facebook.com/corpulentprovocateur.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Hopefully some energy which they can relate to.


"Pleine Noirceur" is the upcoming album from Canadian grindcore champions Fuck The Facts. Set for release on November 20th via their very own label Noise Salvation, the full length follows their 2015 Juno nominated "Desire Will Rot". "Pleine Noirceur" continues right where the band left off, offering up another slab of their patented “bastardized” grindcore full of all the twists and turns that fans have come to expect.

Leading up to the record's deliverance, the trio has previewed songs "Ailleurs", "Dropping Like Flies", "Everything I Love Is Ending" and the album's title track. Today, just days away from "Pleine Noirceur" discharging to headphones and speakers around the globe, the band is sharing their latest single "An Ending", the second last closer on the album.

Guitarist Topon Das adds: "This song deviates from the more grindcore and head-bashing tunes on the record to show more of our melodic side. Not referenced as often, but the early days of bands like Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Enchantment & Cemetary definitely had a strong influence on my writing as well. There's a dark and depressing feel to the song that really embodies the theme of the whole album." 

Listen to "An Ending" via its premiere on NoCleanSinging HERE.


After teasing fans for days on social media, Los Angeles rockers Black Veil Brides are releasing a new single and video for the track “Scarlet Cross.” The song comes from the band’s upcoming 2021 concept album The Phantom Tomorrow – the band’s sixth full-length album. The album tells the story of the antihero character “The Blackbird” and a group of societal outcasts known as simply as “The Phantom Tomorrow.” The first single “Scarlet Cross” – produced by Erik Ron (Godsmack, Dance Gavin Dance, Bush) and guitarist Jake Pitts – is available via all digital partners today. 

The video for “Scarlet Cross” was directed by longtime collaborator Patrick Fogarty and based on a concept written by frontman Andy Biersack. The video was filmed on the Santa Clarita Studios backlot and is the first in a series of videos that will follow the story of the main character “The Blackbird.”. The video opens as a female member of “The Phantom Tomorrow” takes to the streets only to be discovered and followed. As things get dire, the “The Blackbird” arrives only to fade to black. Shot to look like an old school comic book serial, the video ends with the cliffhanger tease leaving the viewer unsure of the fate of the heroine or her attackers.

“We are incredibly excited to share not only this new song ‘Scarlet Cross,’ but also our vision for the world of “The Phantom Tomorrow” and its characters. We are in the final stages of writing for this record and have begun work on our forthcoming “The Phantom Tomorrow” graphic novel. We intend to continue to share elements of the story in the coming months and can’t wait for everyone to see what we have been working on!”

Black Veil Brides are hard at work putting the finishing touches on the upcoming album The Phantom Tomorrow– scheduled for release via Sumerian Records in 2021. More information on the latest musical creation from Andy Biersack, Jake Pitts, Jinxx, Lonny Eagleton and Christian Coma will be available in the near future.
