Templeton Pek – “The Awakening”
Celebrating their 10 year anniversary as a signed band, Birmingham-based punks Templeton Pek are gearing up for the release of their 5th studio album, Watching The World Come Undone.
The trio have just shared the second single, “The Awakening”, which draws influence from their anger at a shift in the world’s political landscape, and is out now through all good digital platforms.
The news comes following a recent stint on the sold-out Punk Summer Nationals Tour in the UK alongside The Offspring and Bad Religion, which culminated at Hammersmith Apollo to 6,500 people.
Unshine – “Visionary’s Last Breath”
Inspired by artists as diverse as Enslaved, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Tangerine Dream and Iron Maiden, Unshine is described as ‘Finnish druid and folk metal’ by five friends whom all were raised in the countryside villages of Western Finland.
With a long history of recording and playing behind them, Unshine are super-stoked about the upcoming release of their new album Astrala due out January 19, 2018 in Europe and February 9, 2018 in North America via Rockshots Records. The album is inspired by the invisible side of the Earth. The first five album songs address the manifestations of Astrala and the last five songs describe travels to Astrala. The album has a touch of Nordic melancholy written all over it and it includes music meant to create landscapes and themes from folk stories, mythology and nature religions, but also to present personal views describing the spiritual meaning of a forest as a cultural concept. The binding theme here is forest, although this is not a theme album.
Exploring these values in their new album Astrala, Unshine unleash their new video “Visionary’s Last Breath”.
