More videos than we could hope to get through this week! Apologies to those bands we’ve not had a chance to feature.
Wrathrone – “Sea of Sickness”
Starting things off nice and heavy with a belter from Wrathrone. The band have just announced some German dates from the 20th to 22nd of October in Berlin, Wolfenbüttel and Essen. Barreleye from Berlin and Mortals Path from Gelsenkirchen (nice place, been there) are also participating on the tour.
Alter Bridge – “Show Me A Leader”
We’d have popped this up a couple of days ago when it was first released, but at the time it was only on VEVO which doesn’t like being embedded on websites. Playing catch-up now, though, and it’s another cracker from the stadium-rockers. The album it comes from, The Last Hero, is due out on October 7th. You can pre-order it on Amazon and help fund this site – [amazon text=Digital download&asin=B01IOBB2PS], [amazon text=CD&asin=B01J1YB7YS], [amazon text=Deluxe Edition CD&asin=B01J1LJ5RW], [amazon text=Vinyl&asin=B01J1YB68U].
Xile – “Warzone”
Xile are from New Zealand. “Warzone” is taken from the new EP, Grafton, which will be released via BDHW Records on the 7th of October.
The Hostiles – “Inconsiderate”
High Flying Scottish ska-punks The Hostiles surge forward with their new video single “Inconsiderate”. The track is lifted from the band’s acclaimed new album, Last Call, out now. Pick up a copy over on Amazon ([amazon text=CD&asin=B01GG63MLK] / [amazon text=CD&asin=B01EUEDCEM]).
Described by Punktastic.com as “upbeat, effervescent, bouncy and danceable”, skacore crew The Hostiles are noted for delivering highly energetic sweat-drenched live performances, underpinned by a two-pronged brass backbone of trombone. Formed in Ayr back in 2001, The Hostiles began with brothers Josh (Guitar), and Chris (Bass), who grew up in the States before moving to Scotland in their teens. Joined by local like-minded ska-lovers, Callum Douglas (Drums), Steve Bruce (Trombone) and later Joe Stainke (Trombone), their sound was firmly formed, echoing heavier skacore acts like Capdown, Lightyear and King Prawn.
Since releasing their debut album in 2009, The Hostiles have captured cult followings through the UK, Europe and beyond, playing hundreds of gigs sharing stages with Catch 22, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Zebrahead, The Mad Caddies and Strike Anywhere, and have received numerous tracks throughout the world.
