Stonecutters drop new single "Wealth & Power" via MetalSucks

October 17 MetalSucks premiered Stonecutters’ new single.

Few metal albums this year will have as appropriate a title as Carved in Time, the newest offering from Louisville, KY’s Stonecutters. The briefest description of their music would be deathrash in a similar vein to Skeletonwitch and Revocation, but that would also be an oversimplification. Carved in Time draws on influences from across the history of metal, from NWOBHM to classic thrash to death metal to sludge to hardcore to melodeath to… well, you get the idea. Stonecutters expertly synthesize the entirety of metal history into something new, something that’s at once totally destructive and crazy fun, like illegal firecrackers or silently passing gas at a fancy cocktail party.

But don’t just take our word for it — listen for yourself, as today MetalSucks proudly premieres the Timely track “Wealth and Power.”

The Morning Sea drops new music video via New Noise

September 25 - New Noise ran the premiere of The Morning Sea’s music video for their song “(I’ve invented a) Maneuver” – watch it below. The track is taken from the band’s album Destruction Songs, which is scheduled to be released later this Fall.

The band commented on the video:

The video for ‘(I’ve invented a) Maneuver’ is a DIY dance party. Featuring members of The Morning Sea and others dancing in black and white with flashes of color, the footage was culled together through crowd-sourced video submissions from friends and followers via a call-to-action on social media. The song itself arrived one day on a lark in the rehearsal room, when the band started riffing on an old bit by the comedian Eddie Izzard about the invention of the Heimlich Maneuver. We decided the best way to compliment this song which was born out of pure joy and silliness would be with a music video that exudes the same spirit.Destruction Songs, the third album by The Morning Sea, was recorded in producer/engineer Andy Baldwin’s (Bjork, St. Lucia, HAERTS, Morcheeba) cabin studio in upstate New York. Recorded mostly live over the course of a long weekend – with some additional recording done at Baldwin’s Brooklyn studio, Rola Pola – these songs capture the band in their most vibrant and creative state, feeding off of each other’s impulses and recreating the energetic vibe of their live shows. Musically the album is upbeat and electrifying, save for the final track which serves as a sort of cool-down reflection on what’s come before. Meanwhile, singer/songwriter Adam Cohen’s lyrics cover themes of hope, despair, love, loss, regret, and redemption.

Upcoming Shows:
Oct 30 – NYC at Mercury Lounge( Album Release Show) w/ Bird Streets  TICKETS

AUSTIN LUCAS Premieres new single via American Songwriter

On August 17, Austin Lucas will release a new album, Immortal Americans. Following 2016’s Between The Moon And The MidwestImmortal Americansmarks Lucas’ first release since parting ways with label New West Records, and also follows major life events like Lucas’ finding sobriety and helping his partner get through cancer.

Lucas co-produced Immortal Americans with Will Johnson, known for his work both as a solo artist and with the band Centro-matic. The famed Steve Albini recorded and mixed the album.

Ahead of Immortal Americans‘ release, Lucas has shared the album’s title track. “Immortal Americans” begins as a slow lament for outsiders and underdogs, before eventually building to a melodic anthem that celebrates those who transcended their outsider statuses to find community with like-minded, compassionate folks.

“This song is dedicated to the outsiders and ‘freaks’ who grew up in small towns and the rural countrysides of America, the folks who discovered themselves and suffered for it when their identities fell outside of the mainstream,” Lucas says. “Hated at school, misunderstood at home, singled out by cops, chased through alleyways, and attacked by classmates and neighbors—too many of us experienced an alienating, anxious, and oftentimes scary childhood. However difficult these early experiences were, many of us were fortunate enough to find like-minded people. We created lifelong bonds, weathered numerous trials, lifted each other up, and became stronger, more compassionate human beings. I wrote this song for us.”

- American Songwriter
