First quartet of the weekend. Enjoy!
Brutai – “Relapse”
High-flyers Brutai have just released a montage video for the track “Relapse” consisting of footage from this year’s Bloodstock appearance. Felix Lawrie says this about the track:
Lyrically, Relapse is about the ongoing battle with addiction. We can all get addicted to something that takes away the pain. Some people have an ongoing fight with this illness everyday – and it is something that has the ability to consume you and deeply affect others around you. Addiction can come in many different vices such as alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling, sex, and more. There aren’t many known cures for it either; just acceptance, and learning how to deal with it better in your own way. Everyone can relapse but what’s important is how we respond to it.
Lucid Fly – “Visions of Grandeur”
US progressive dark rockers outfit Lucid Fly are delighted to announce their debut LP Building Castles In Air, scheduled for release November 11th. To celebrate, they’ve dropped this new video for the song “Visions of Grandeur”.

The Qemists – “Jungle” (feat. Hacktivist)
Following on from tours with Enter Shikari and Crossfaith, plus a slew of summer festivals across Europe, The Qemists are now set to release “Jungle”, their third single taken from their latest album Warrior Sound which is out now. The track features none other than the mighty Hacktivist. The Qemists’ Dan Arnold says of the collaboration:
When we started making Warrior Sound, Hacktivist were right up there on our list of people we’d love to collaborate with. Jungle was one of the first tracks to be created for the record and we knew we wanted Ben and J to feature on it.
Like Run You, we felt that Jungle was a track that really defined Warrior Sound sonically, and the guys got the vibe straight away. They were hyped when they arrived at our studio in Brighton, and their verses connected like a right hook!
