I’m not going to make any comments about Easter and eggs in case the tabloids go mental. So here are some songs instead.
ChuggaBoom – “White Mums Can’t Chugg”
Comedic metalcore outfit, ChuggaBoom is back and trolling the internet trolls with a new single titled, “White Moms Can’t Chugg”. The single, inspired by Reddit users, comes from their upcoming EP Kevin and is set to release May 12th.
Super73 – “Monkey See, Monkey Do”
Armed with a barrage of powerful riffs, melodic vocal lines and unique angular phrasing that sets them apart from the pack, Super73 are an accomplished alternative combo who reward your attention with a cluster of snappy rock-filled cuts akin to early Biffy Clyro, Reuben and Therapy? Super73 have just revealed the video for their new single, “Monkey See, Monkey Do”.
Tan.Trum – “The Black”
Former Band of the Day and newly rejigged 3-piece teen rockers Tan.Trum have just released their first video that they made and edited themselves. In 12 hours. Seriously, is there no end to their talent? Hand on heart, this better edited and synced than some of the professional offerings we’re sent.
Sarcasm – “Scars of a Land Forgotten”
Legendary Swedish death metallers Sarcasm have released the official video for “Scars of a Land Forgotten,” a track from forthcoming Dark Descent album Within the Sphere of Ethereal Minds. The album is due for release on April 28th.
…And The Hangnails – “Enjoy It While It Lasts”
York-based indie/punk duo, …And The Hangnails have shared the new squash themed music video for “Enjoy It While It Lasts”, taken from the new album, DOG – Out May 12th through Young Thugs Records.
The Eden House – “Verdades”
The Eden House are a musical collective who’ve collaborated with a wide variety of vocalists and musicians and have previously released two albums and two mini-albums. Their third album Songs For The Broken Ones is due on June 23rd. Watch now the video for the new single “Verdades (I Have Chosen You)”.
It features Monica Richards of Faith & the Muse on vocals, with lyrics sung mostly in Spanish. Monica, an eco-activist veteran of the DC punk scene and sometime Conflict member, was asked about the single and video:
I’ve spent my life studying worldwide literature; I just moved and unpacking boxes found this anonymous poem from Spain. I wish I had more history to it. I chose it for the song because it fitted the style of music. I wanted to honour it and didn’t want to sing an English translation … I’ve always tried to sing in original texts; through the years I’ve sung in Latin, French but I always wanted to sing a song in Spanish. I don’t speak Spanish well, but I can get by. As I live in Los Angeles I’m not around people from Spain, so I worked more from the Mexican accent.
Filming the video was gorgeous and surreal. The church basement felt so ancient, it really set the mood. I’m not exactly comfortable in churches, so I wanted to be sure that my own pagan Goth Queen sensibilities were very much intact.
