Everyone goes through crazy shit from time to time and we all have found peace through music in those moments.

The Defiled – ‘Five Minutes’ – Official Video
Ahead of their UK headliner tour which kicks off in Nottingham next Monday, The Defiled have posted their brand new video for the song ‘Five Minutes’.
Featuring the newly recorded, full band version of the acoustic song that originally appeared on album ‘Daggers’, ‘Five Minutes’ combines stunning footage shot during their trip to Greenland (where they became the first band to ever play a live gig on a floating, moving iceberg), cut with tributes from fans who have lost loved ones.
“Five Minutes is probably our most emotional song, and the one most personal to me” says The AvD. “The day of filming was an emotional rollercoaster – bittersweet. So much sadness in the air, but also therapeutic at the same time. I think everyone there felt the same. It’s easy to look at people like us – metalheads, goths, whatever you want to call us – and think we are morbid people obsessed with death, that death is something we welcome, but just ‘cos we wear black it doesn’t make us immune to grief. The pain one feels when losing someone close is universal, and something no one is exempt from.”
Issues Stream Reimagined Version Of ‘Never Lose Your Flames’ Featuring Neck Deep
The track is taken from Issues’ ‘Diamond Dreams’ EP, which is out today. Speaking of the release, the band have said:”We had a lot of fun making this record, being able to reimagine songs and show that we aren’t just metalcore kids, or whatever you wanna call us. We are multitalented, and we aren’t set on one taste of music; we respect and appreciate all variations. Sorry it took so long to put this out, guys!”

In This Moment Unleash Track ‘Sex Metal Barbie’
In This Moment are taking the next step with their ‘Black Widow’ album by unleashing the new song ‘Sex Metal Barbie.’ The track, the follow-up to their current hit single ‘Sick Like Me,’ is a solid showcase for Maria Brink‘s vocal work and she maneouvers from sultry and soul-baring to unadulterated aggression with ease. The song also provides some of that spooky vibe that In This Moment are so great at capturing, opening with what sounds like haunting chimes before a wall of guitar engulfs the soundscape.
Brink says, the ‘Black Widow’ album finds her turning her weaknesses into strengths. “I struggled with kind of fighting with the inner illnesses within myself where my psychological madness and I have always kind of struggled with different disorders and mental things and so the biggest thing that I was kind of always ashamed of or being embarrassed of was kind of that,” says Brink. “It is learning about embracing those things and letting go of being ashamed or questioning why it’s like that, or learning to fall in love with those twisted darker parts of my mind and myself learning my experiences or anything that I lived to bring who I am.”

Flynn continues, “Without getting too philosophical on ya, bloodstone and diamonds represent two of the hardest materials on earth, it is also a lyric from the opening track of the album ‘Now We Die’. In many cultures the bloodstone has been used as an amulet to protect against evil, and is the symbol of justice. Diamonds and are hardest natural material on earth (which is how we feel about our music), and it also represents the diamond logo I drew 22 years ago that has become the symbol for the band.”
In This Moment Unveil New Song – ‘Bloody Creature Poster Girl’
Ready for your next dose of In This Moment? The band has just unleashed a video clip for their new song ‘Bloody Creature Poster Girl’ from their upcoming album ”Black Widow.’ It follows on the footsteps of their preview track ‘Sex Metal Barbie‘ and their current single ‘Sick Like Me.’
Much like the previous releases off the ‘Black Widow’ album, there’s a dark beauty to the lyrical content and sound and a theatrical element to the vibe.

Theory of a Deadman – ‘Savages’ featuring Alice Cooper – New Video
Canadian rockers Theory of a Deadman have just unveiled the video for the title track from their latest album ‘Savages.’ The clip features iconic rocker Alice Cooper delivering a spoken word message about today’s children and our global future.
In the movie, Alice Cooper jumps on the track at the bridge, before the blazing guitar solo. He delivers a spoken word message: “Time after time we never learn from our mistakes / When we will realize we’re all just the same / We’re all humans fighting human nature to stay alive / We’re predators teaching our children to be just like us / To fear and hate like us / Will we ever realize we’re just savages? / God save us all.”
Brilliant. I like the song and I like the music video.

Attika 7 are currently working on a new studio album, but have decided to get a jump on things by issuing the ‘Darkest Day’ song and lyric video.
Vocalist Evan Seinfeld says, “Attika 7 is proud to release ‘Darkest Day’ to the masses. This is easily our heaviest track to date. We think a lot of people are going to be very surprised about the sound, the energy and the musicianship. We have been working harder than ever to take our music to the next level.” He adds of the track, “This is the ultimate revenge song about the wheel of Karma coming full circle and the hand of fate, whether by our hands or yours delivering some real justice. Too many people think there are no consequences to their actions, and revenge, a dish best served cold, can taste so sweet. When someone has done you wrong, you don’t always get to pay them back and when someone takes something from you, something must be done! The weak will beg for mercy and receive NONE, if Attika 7 has anything to say about it.”

Mastodon Unleash an Army of Twerkers in Video for ‘The Motherload’
Just as we thought the whole world was sick of twerking, the metal titans of Mastodon have single-handedly brought it back. For the band’s new video for ‘The Motherload,’ Mastodon recruited some of the world’s greatest booty shakers and mixed them together. Out of nowhere, female butts begin twerking while a slave-like character carries a giant bell on his back. The twerking never truly stops from this point onward, but hey, we’re not complaining. The cast of twerkers almost act as a flash mob, interrupting each scene with jiggling derrieres.
All in all, the video is pretty awesome and is one you won’t soon forget. It’s probably best not to watch the new Mastodon video at school / work / in front of your Mum

Rock musicians have been known to have rough nights, and you’ll get to see that on full display in Vanna’s new video for ‘Personal Cross’. In between clips of the band performing, the video finds Vanna frontman Dave Muise awaking after a hard-partying night with the last few drops of liquor from a bottle falling on the floor and a lit cigarette still in a nearby ashtray. So, how will the rocker embrace the day? Watch the video to find out.
“In dealing with personal demons and struggling on how to shake them from my shoulder I always feel like each one needs their own saving. That each issue is as great as the next. I’ve learned that there is nothing and no one that will step in and save me, no rescuer to swoop in and save the day. I create in myself a personal cross, a way to lessen the load, a way to cope. I’m a mess of a person but somewhere inside me is that light that can overthrow those dark parts in my life. Make your own crosses to bear the weight of your woes and troubles, you are your own savior.”
Adelitas Way – ‘Save the World’ – Lyric Video
Adelitas Way are looking to reach new heights with their latest album ‘Stuck’ and they’ve just unleashed the new single ‘Save the World’ to listeners.
The song has a more political point of view than a lot of the band’s material and that’s reflected in the clip, which features footage of war bombings, congressional hearings, military personnel in gas masks, political demonstrations and other striking footage playing out in the background while at least a portion of the lyrics scroll across the screen like a scroll on a TV news feed.
Frontman Rick DeJesus tells, ”‘Save the World’ is about a person who is unsure of themselves, who tries to convince others to follow his/her opinions. Everyone has to follow who they are to truly be themselves, but some people are so good at bullsh—ing, that they convince other people they are the one who should be setting the tone.”

Motionless in White Release Video for ‘Reincarnate’
The veteran rockers from the band Motionless in White are back with a new album and they’ve just unleashed the video for the title track and lead single ‘Reincarnate.’
The clip has the look and style of a 1950s horror film with a dastardly beauty leading the band into the woods on a dark night. She appears to have a spell over the guys as they are put to work digging their own grave while she gets her own amusement over the action. But things get weird when the band’s doppelgangers turn up to help bury the group alive.
The black-and-white old-timey footage is blended with some equally spooky color footage of Chris Motionless singing from a blood red couch in a notorious haunted Suite at a Los Angeles hotel. The group members can also be seen rocking in the suite, but most of the footage centers on Motionless.
Alunah – ‘Heavy Bough’ – New Video
Since 2006, British band Alunah have been giving us doom psychedelia heavy on the groove. Led by frontwoman Soph Day, the Birmingham band is rounded off by guitarist Dave Day, bassist Dan Burchmore and drummer Jake Mason.
They have just released an addictive new track, ‘Bough’ from their third album ‘Awakening the Forest.’ The voice of Soph Day is hypnotic and carried along by a solid instrumental section reminiscent of classic Black Sabbath.
The video is captivating as well, depicting a hermit-like individual roaming through the woods searching for natural additions to a special potion.
Of the setting for the video, Soph Day said “Elvaston Castle was the perfect location, and we are extremely privileged to have been granted access to such beautiful buildings and grounds. We hope you enjoy it.”

Mushroomhead Unveil Brutal New ‘Out of My Mind’ Video
Mushroomhead are back with a brutal new video for ‘Out of My Mind.’ The masked band, who are known for their creepy imagery in their videos, did not shy away on this one, delivering some fairly graphic imagery.
The politically-charged and violent clip will likely make some turn away from the screen, especially during the torture scenes complete with back piercings, blood spattering and water boarding. However most of the clip centers on the war room and a press conference spelling out the issues at hand.
‘Out of My Mind’ is featured on Mushroomhead’s seventh studio album ‘The Righteous & the Butterfly,’ which was released back in May. The video follows in the footsteps of their recent clip for ‘QWERTY.’

Limp Bizkit Unleash ‘Endless Slaughter’ Video
If you thought ‘Endless Slaughter‘ was an odd track for Limp Bizkit, just wait until you see the brand new video for the song.
Much like the track itself, the video switches gears each time the sound shifts. The video opens with an extreme close-up of Fred Durst as he belts the in-your-face lyrics to the opening part of ‘Endless Slaughter’ while making his way through a crowded audience on the band’s European tour.
From there, the song shifts gears into a more chilled out vibe, with the focus centered on a riverside early-morning stroll. As the tempo picks up again, you see a darkened figure running through the dimly lit brick-covered streets like a madman on the loose, and the clip ends with drummer Sam Otto entering a venue, taking his place behind the kit and providing a funky beat for the track’s latter portion.
If you think the song sounds a little different than what we’ve come to expect from Limp Bizkit, you’re not the only one. Durst said, “It’s a little crazier than usual. It’s more off the wall. It’s hard to explain, but I think this will be the one which changes the way we make music from here on out.”
‘Endless Slaughter’ is expected to appear on Limp Bizkit’s long-awaited ‘Stampede of the Disco Elephants’ album.
Trapt – ‘Headstrong’ (Acoustic)
Trapt are ready to unleash ’The Acoustic Collection’ in September, and bring you this premiere of the unplugged version of their biggest hit, ‘Headstrong’.
The track first put Trapt on the musical map, as the song skyrocketed straight to No. 1 on both the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. From there, the doors opened for Trapt, who have delivered a steady stream of hard rock radio hits over the past decade.
Frontman Chris Taylor Brown says, “‘The Acoustic Collection’ really focuses on the songs we have written throughout the years. I think by stripping every song down to the basic instruments, it really allows the emotion in each song to be felt. We have played acoustic sets at radio stations, meet and greets with fans and have even done a few full acoustic shows and with each performance, our fans asked for an album of acoustic songs. I really feel like we delivered exactly what they had in mind.”
He adds, “This album is definitely the most organic sounding album we have ever done for obvious reasons. We were able to create an album that breathes and moves without the aid of too much production, just natural instruments the way they were meant to be heard.”
Slipknot Unleash New Single – ‘The Devil in I’

While ‘The Negative One’ is pure brutality, ‘The Devil in I’ features clean and melodic vocals from Corey Taylor in its verses before he delivers the powerful chorus, as he sings ‘Step inside / See the Devil in I / Too many times we’ve let it come to this.’
So, stop what you’re doing and listen to the new Slipknot single ‘The Devil in I’
Sixx: A.M. Reveal New Song – ‘Stars’
After teasing fans earlier, Sixx: A.M. have revealed the full audio for the new song ‘Stars’ from their upcoming ‘Modern Vintage’ album, and the track definitely lives up to the praise provided by frontman James Michael. The vocalist said in a recent teaser trailer, “As far as a Sixx: A.M. song, I think that ‘Stars’ might be one of the best songs we’ve ever written.” He also called it one of the band’s most aggressive songs that gives him goosebumps every time he hears it.
It’s easy to see why Michael would feel that way as he definitely delivers in the chorus, with “Do you wanna see heaven tonight / Underneath those lights / It would look so beautiful / Do you wanna see the stars before they fall, see the stars before they fall.”
Sweet Lynch - ‘September’ – New Lyric Video

The song reflects on one of the most tragic events in American history — 9/11 — with the lyric video featuring a waving American flag serving as the initial backdrop before giving way to the words, which are depicted with city skyline graphics.
“The song ‘September’ was written as a simple reminder to stand strong against our adversaries and even more important, to stand united. Love conquers hate and that will never change.”

I think people will embrace its diversity and hear different sides of us that they haven’t experienced yet.”

The track has an incredibly infectious beat to it.

Look for Amaranthe’s ‘Massive Addictive’ album to drop Oct. 21 through Spinefarm Records
I like it!
Butcher Babies Unveil Rocked Out Cover of ‘They’re Coming to Take Me Away’
Butcher Babies recently revealed plans to release a new covers EP titled ‘Uncovered’ and one of the more intriguing selections they made was taking on the Napoleon XIV classic, ‘They’re Coming to Take Me Away.’ The track was initially recorded in 1966 as a novelty song by Jerry Samuels, who used the moniker Napoleon XIV. The song shot all the way up the charts to No. 3, but wasn’t exactly the first track you’d associate with hard rock or metal … that is until now.
Co-vocalist Carla Harvey recently stated in the press release announcing the collection, “It was a blast recording songs that we have been fans of our entire lives and putting our spin on them. We all chose a song that had some significance to us. My pick was ‘They’re Coming to Take Me Away’ by Napoleon XIV because I have a vivid memory of my stepdad, who I considered completely insane, playing it over and over again on his car stereo when I was a pre-teen. The song is about being taken away to a mental institution. I can still see him tapping his fingers on his steering wheel to the beat…”

Frontman Dryden Mitchell commented on the song saying, “’Homage’ is plain and simply just what the title says … an homage to various artists that have influenced me/us or at least provided the background to some good times in our lives. The song just had this wonderful nostalgic feel, before the lyrics even got added … and then it just slammed the point home. Whatever it does on a listener level, I know some folks will get it … immediately”
‘Homage,’ which is available on iTunes now, and will be featured on their upcoming album ‘Always and Forever.’

Frontman John Allen says “Outwardly, the song seems like a party anthem, but to me it’s more. Sure this song and video are about as Rock and F—ing Roll as you can get! But, to me it’s the band! There’s no outside songwriters, no overblown production, we are wearing our influences on our sleeves. The video is a documentary of the touring life of the band and lyrically it’s a plea to a close friend to please get help for his addictions before it’s too late. This is one of the songs that every night I know I have physically, mentally and emotionally left it all out on the table!”

The clip is much more than just the song’s lyrics scrawled across the screen, as the band has used live concert footage to spice up the viewing experience.
“‘You Want Me’ is one of the most personal songs on the new record,” says frontman Levi Benton. ”When I wrote this song, I was relating to the fans because, like them, I’m tired of being pushed around and tired of trying to live up to others’ expectations. I feel this video symbolizes how we push those people to the ground.”

SycAmour – ‘We’re in Hell’ – Video Released
SycAmour are ready to break out with their new album ‘Indulgence: A Saga of Lights’ and the band has unveiled the video for ‘We’re in Hell’
The video is actually more of a horrific short film which contains some pretty graphic imagery. The plot centers on a seemingly normal dinner party that’s interrupted by a home invasion with the intruders breaking the monotonous life of those they’ve taken captive by making them feel using violent and extreme means.
Speaking about the song, frontman Jeremy Gilmore tells, “‘We’re in Hell’ is about feeling and circumstance. Struggling with reality is a universal human characteristic and one that we can unify under. ‘Nobody wants to be a rose’ ties in to the notion that we are playing the cards we are dealt. Within the universe of ‘Indulgence,’ ‘We’re in Hell’ depicts one faction’s idea of educating the citizens of The Metro on the finer points of what it means to feel.”
Slipknot Unleash Unnerving Video for New Song ‘The Negative One’
On Aug. 1, Slipknot electrified the metal community with the release of ‘The Negative One.’ The new track is Slipknot’s first in six years, and to add even more excitement, Slipknot have just unleashed a music video for ‘The Negative One’
Despite ‘The Negative One’ acting as Slipknot’s first new song without drummer Joey Jordison or late bassist Paul Gray, Slipknot still got a monumental buzz going with a series of cryptic teasers. Gray and Jordison were integral to Slipknot’s sound, but ‘The Negative One’ proves without a doubt that the masked icons have kept their sonic inferno blistering.
Speaking to BBC Radio, vocalist Corey Taylor offered up info on ‘The Negative One.’ “People don’t know what to expect from us and that’s kinda the way we like it. The great thing is that … ‘The Negative One’ isn’t our single,” Taylor says. “That was just a gift for the fans, like we wanted them to hear a piece of the album. The single comes out in a few weeks and it’s completely different. It’s more melodic, but it’s dark, it’s powerful man, its something different, people are going to lose their minds when they hear that.”
It’s got the spirit. The thing I love is that everyone’s reactions are very, very similar. They love the fact that there’s new Slipknot out. They also love the fact that it feels like old school meets new school. Like you can feel the original craziness of the early stuff but you can tell that the evolution has happened. And that’s kind of what we were shooting for, ya know? Remember I said I wanted the album to feel like a cross between ‘Iowa’ and ‘Vol. 3′ and I think we did that. Wait till you hear the whole album, because this story is so deep and so honest and so crazy that people are going to lose their minds when they hear it.”
Slipknot’s video for ‘The Negative One,’ directed by percussionist Shawn Crahan, is creepy as hell. Mixed with dark imagery and a terrifying female character, the visual element adds to the full experience of ‘The Negative One’ much like a Marilyn Manson or Nine Inch Nails video. After weeks of Slipknot’s visual teases, we finally know where they came from.

Royal Blood Let Viewers ‘Figure It Out’ With Mysterious New Video
Perception is everything! Royal Blood mess with your heads a little bit in the video for their new single, ‘Figure It Out.’
The video is shot in red and blue colours and focuses on a dazed young woman entering a shopping mall. As the video opens, we slowly begin to notice the people in the mall running for cover while security closes in on this woman with a blood-soaked dress.
As she’s cornered by security, she shows some serious skills fending off her attackers. Add in a “missing” sign and an attractive male pursuer that stops her in her tracks and you think you’ve got the whole story. But the title of the track should be a clue — there’s still plenty to figure out. Watch the intriguing clip below.
‘Figure It Out’ comes from Royal Blood’s self-titled debut disc, due for release on August 25.

The clip does conclude with a tribute message giving a shout out to the band’s late frontman Mitch Lucker.

It’s really, like, the first empowering song I’ve ever written. The lyrics are: ‘You can’t bring me down / I’ve already had my life turned upside down / I ride a downward spiral round and round / But I keep flying, I keep fighting / Don’t ever bring me down.’ That’s like the most positive s–t I’ve ever written.”

Seether Unveil Reflective ‘Words As Weapons’ Video
Seether take an introspective look with their latest single ‘Words as Weapons,’ but it’s more of a reflective look that dominates the visuals for the song’s video. The band headed to the historic Vasquez Rocks to shoot the video, which makes great use of mirrors and sunlight, as well as some very active body-suited extras. The video was actually inspired by the work of French expressionist Jean Conteau and his 1949 film, ‘Orpheus.’
‘Words as Weapons’ is the lead single off the band’s ‘Isolate and Medicate’ album.

Though the music is brutal, the lyrics are particularly personal as Hermida belts out, “We sing these song for the broken down / The beaten up and pushed aside / You aren’t alone in this path of life / We sing these songs so you don’t die.”

Theory of a Deadman are back and currently rocking radio with their new single ‘Drown.’ Now, the lead single from their ‘Savages’ album has a companion music video and EmoTionRaio is proud to present it.
The video finds the band in an old Western setting, playing inside a darkened house while outside an old time preacher rallies the local townsfolk to perform a baptism in an area lake. A young woman is eventually chosen to take part in the ceremony as everyone cheers her on, but there’s something a little more sinister afoot.

Linkin Park recently debuted the lyric video for ‘Until It’s Gone,’ but now they have an official video directed by the band’s own DJ/programmer Joe Hahn.
The video (which premiered on Facebook and is viewable below) finds the band members frequently performing the song silhouetted with images projected onto their faces. Often the images are smoke filled or featuring dilapidated structures, with the occasional shots of people in despair. Add that in with the post-apocalyptic, haunting keyboard sounds laid down by Hahn in the song, and the video has a very ominous feel to it.
Mastodon Unveils Heroic ‘High Road’ Video

As for the lyric video, the song’s lyrics pop up across the screen over several photos of the band. But the backdrop is truly in the background as the focus is on the lyrical content of the song, which shows a relationship in disrepair.

Two other music videos and a lyric video have previously been released from ‘War Eternal,’ the band’s first disc featuring new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz and guitarist Nick Cordle.
In a new interview with ‘Loudwire Nights’ host Full Metal Jackie, White-Gluz talked about the impact of Arch Enemy’s former vocalist Angela Gossow, who is still managing the band.
“She knows exactly what’s needed for the band,” White-Gluz says. “Who can manage the band better than someone who’s already been in it? Been there, done that, did all the touring. Plus she’s been the manager of the band for a long time. So, it’s really a great situation that I have. Angela is still here working with me and the band because she has a lot of wisdom that just some other manager who steps into it really wouldn’t know.”
Godsmack Releases New Single ’1000HP’

Judas Priest Release Clip of Epic New Track ‘Halls of Valhalla’
Praise the metal gods! We’ve got a new track snippet from Judas Priest‘s epic new album ‘Redeemer of Souls.’ This new piece is from ‘Halls of Valhalla’, the upcoming album’s third track. Judas Priest have already gifted fans with two songs — the ‘Redeemer of Souls’ title track and ‘March of the Damned‘. Fans have been overjoyed with the new Priest cuts, but in this new clip of ‘Halls of Valhalla,’ you’ll get a much better look into how epic Judas Priest’s 17th studio album really is. “‘Halls of Valhalla’ — it’s more metal than metal,” says singer Rob Halford. “It’s just an amazing characteristic statement of the same theme of say, for example, ‘The Sentinel’ or the ‘Painkiller’ character. It’s just a very unusual song for Priest.”
Arch Enemy Debut ‘You Will Know My Name’ Video
Arch Enemy have unveiled the latest video from their upcoming album ‘War Eternal,’ due out June 10. ‘You Will Know My Name’ (watch above) has debuted via Metal Hammer. The clip was directed by longtime collaborator Patric Ullaeus and focuses on the band members while they are performing the song, especially new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, who recently replaced Angela Gossow.
Not only is ‘War Eternal’ the debut Arch Enemy album for White-Gluz, it’s also the first for guitarist Nick Cordle, who joined the band in 2012. Guitarist and founding member Michael Amott addressed the changes. “Changes in the band lineup are hardly ever looked upon favorably by the fans, which I completely understand,” Amott says. “Nonetheless, it does happen and the changes that have been made in the Arch Enemy camp were necessary in order for the band to survive and keep going. I love the energy of working with new people and Alissa and Nick have certainly brought a lot of talent and enthusiasm to the band!” “My goal is to keep Arch Enemy alive and thriving!” White-Gluz says. “I want to open a whole new chapter for Arch Enemy, powerful and diverse, all the while respecting the legions of fans that love traditional Arch Enemy. Fans can expect loads of pure f–king metal.”
Arch Enemy just kicked off a busy touring schedule. They’ll be playing numerous European festivals this summer and have other tours scheduled for the rest of the year, but no North American shows. You can check out their full concert schedule here.
Tax The Heat have unleashed their new music video for the track “Fed To The Lions”.

Malcom Young’s Nephew May Be Filling In On AC/DC Album
Following the recent reports that work on AC/DC’s new album has begun, it is now believed that Malcom Young’s nephew Stevie Young will be filling in for him on guitar on the record. Stevie has been spotted with the band in Vancouver, where they are reportedly recording with Brendan O’Brien.
It wouldn’t be the first time that Nephew covered for his uncle either, as he previously stepped up to play rhythm guitar on AC/DC’s 1988 US tour, while Malcom was dealing with alcholism. AC/DC issued a statement on April 16th 2014 confirming that Malcom Young would be taking a break from the band due to ill health and that they would continue making music, albeit without him for the time being.
There’s been no official confirmation from the band as yet regarding Stevie Young.

Drowning Scare for Black Veil Brides Members on Australian Reality Show ‘Bondi Rescue’
After two members of Black Veil Brides ventured out into some choppy Australian waters, one of them was apparently rescued from drowning, and it was captured in an episode of the reality show ‘Bondi Rescue’, a TV show focused around lifeguards patrolling Bondi Beach near Sydney, Australia. The program has aired for nine seasons, and during the season finale, Black Veil Brides’ Jake Pitts and Jinxx make an interesting appearance. The lifeguard who pulled guitarist / violinist Jinxx to shore mistook the two BVB members for females at first. “I had just come from a rescue at the other end of the beach and two girls were in trouble off the Southern side of the main set of flags,” begins lifeguard Azza B., “as I got closer I realized they were actually guys [with] long hair. The fellas were from a rock band, the Black Veil Brides. It kind of suits, because we did think they were both female when we went for the rescue.” BVB guitarist Jake Pitts was able to make it to shore without help from lifeguards. “The ocean is healing, yet deadly,” says Pitts. “You have to know how to handle it. That’s how I made it back in without a surfboard. I know how to handle the water, that’s why you didn’t see
me getting rescued on the surfboard. I know how to do everything. I can build houses, I can surf, I can play music, I’ll do everything. That’s not a lie either, I can do it all.” There’s no telling how dire the actual scenario was. Reality TV doesn’t necessarily depict reality, but check out the clip above and judge for yourself.
Of Mice & Men Unveil Video for New Single ‘Would You Still Be There’
Of Mice & Men have released the video for ‘Would You Still Be There,’ the latest single from their album ‘Restoring Force.’ Released in January, the album was the band’s highest charting effort so far, landing at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart its opening week. “I’m super excited for the debut of our new video for ‘Would You Still Be There,’” says the band’s clean vocalist / bassist Aaron Pauley. “Directed by Nathan Cox, who has worked with bands like Linkin Park and Chevelle, the video offers a peek into a present day small town set in an alternate post-apocalyptic reality, and its gas mask clad inhabitants. Shooting the video was a great experience.” Pauley continues, “Nathan and his staff did an incredible job with the imagery and location, and created a believable setting in an abandoned mining town north of L.A. Despite chipping my tooth on that pesky vintage microphone, I had a blast, and it was awesome getting to hang with some of our fans; which can be seen in the video’s ending performances
parts.” The band is conducting a sweepstakes to encourage fans to share the video. They are giving away prizes including props from the video shoot, t-shirts and other prizes.
Of Mice & Men are booked to play the Rock on the Range festival this weekend in Columbus, Ohio, before heading to South America and then Europe for more touring. They return to the U.S. joining the Warped Tour beginning July 8 in Buffalo, N.Y.
Beartooth To Unleash Debut Album ‘Disgusting’ in June, reveal Video for ‘Beaten in Lips’
After releasing the four song EP ‘Sick’ last year, Beartooth have announced plans to release their full-length debut album, ‘Disgusting,’ on June 10. The band was formed by ex-Attack Attack! frontman Caleb Shomo after he left that band in 2012. As to the sound and style of Beartooth’s music, Shomo described it this way in a recent interview with UK site The Edge: “It’s kind of wild I suppose. It’s fast, it’s loose and it’s fun. Oh and it’s very high energy! We just try and make sure anyone listening to it has a good time, most of all.” The video for the album’s first single, ‘Beaten in Lips,’ can be seen below, while the ‘Disgusting’ album is available for pre-order on iTunes. After playing one show on last year’s Warped Tour, this year they are on the bill for the entire run. The 2014 edition of Warped gets underway June 13 in Houston and wraps up Aug. 3 in Denver.

Falling in Reverse have covered ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ from Coolio a classic hit from the 90′s. Coolio himself makes a guest appearance in the band’s video for the song. The clip is a throwback to Coolio’s original video, with frontman Ronnie Radke sitting in a chair in a dark room in a face-to-face confessional with a female counterpart, describing his gangster life as portrayed in the lyrics. Radke is also seen rocking with his band, while Coolio stands by and poses for the camera, even going so far as to dust the dirt off Radke’s shoulders.
The Black Keys Stream ‘Turn Blue’ Album, Debut ‘Fever’ Video
Preach it! The Black Keys are back. The duo recently debuted their video for their hit single ‘Fever’ and they’re also now streaming their ‘Turn Blue’ album that will be released on May 13. As for the video, it finds frontman Dan Auerbach as a televangelist, getting a little sweaty while preaching the word of the lord while drummer Patrick Carney looks on. As the clip moves forward, the audience gets more and more pulled in by Auerbach’s preaching and the clip ends with some good old fashioned faith healing.
Escape the Fate Attempt to Rewrite Tragedy in ‘Picture Perfect’ Video
What if you could go back and change the past? That’s essentially the vision for Escape the Fate‘s latest video for ‘Picture Perfect’. The band’s members are shown at a funeral, both mourning the loss of a loved one and performing their single ‘Picture Perfect’ outside a church. The musicians are primarily supporting players in the bigger story of a couple torn apart after the death of a young woman. Frontman Craig Mabbitt sings about giving up his eyes and fingertips to see and touch the love of his life one last time, before reflecting with the powerful statement, “Would you have to die for me to see how to live?” As the sentiment kicks in, we see the events that led to this tragedy unfold in reverse order as the young man in the video attempts to go back in time to the events that led to the death of his girlfriend. The clip is a pretty powerful take on the loss of a loved one, as the video leads the viewer backward in time from the coffin to the morgue to the operating table to the motorcycle crash that
ultimately claimed the woman’s life. ‘Picture Perfect’ is the latest single from the band’s ‘Ungrateful’ album, which has already yielded the title track and ‘One for the Money’ as singles.
Suicide Silence – ‘Cease to Exist’
Suicide Silence have unleashed the lyric video for the blazing new track ‘Cease to Exist,’ featuring new vocalist Eddie Hermida, who replaced late singer Mitch Lucker.
“The title of the album comes from lyrics that Mitch left behind,” Hermida told us. “We were looking at the lyrics and were curious what to do with them, but we knew right away that that was going to be the title of the record. We actually had the title of the record before we started writing any of the music. But it was super fitting how the lyrics came together, what it means, and what the album really means.”
Hermida continues, “You know Mitch passing away was something brutal. It’s something you never want to go through, but you’ve got to push through. There’s five members to a band, and when a brother falls, you’ve got to pick up the family and keep it moving forward. I’m lucky to be here and I’m very proud to be here.”
Bloody Hammers – ‘Death Does Us Part’
Bloody Hammers are building up to the June 10 release of their ‘Under Satan’s Sun’ album on Napalm Records with their new video for ‘Death Does Us Part’.
The clip finds the band on a road with the backdrop of a ‘Dead End’ sign as a perfect setting. The performance footage is alternated with a side plot of a couple in olden times.
Frontman Anders Mangra says, “I wrote this song about a cliff in Western North Carolina known as ‘lovers leap’ where legend has it couples have leapt to their death over the years. Mine focuses on a couple who went on a crime spree of murder and robbery. The police were tipped on where they were, which ended in a chase to Lovers Leap. Surrounded by the police on the cliff and facing life in prison, they chose to plunge to their death rather than be separated in life. The video was directed by Robert W. Filion around Crowders Mountain, North Carolina.”
Though ‘Death Does Us Part’ offers a more gothically dark side to their sound, Bloody Hammers music also pulls from elements of doom metal, stoner metal and psychedelic rock. To pick up the ‘Under Satan’s Sun’ album in a variety of formats, check out the band’s page at the Napalm Records online store.
Linkin Park Unveil ‘Until It’s Gone’ Lyric Video
Linkin Park‘s new album is called ‘The Hunting Party’ and that concept carries over to their new lyric video. Unlike a lot of lyric videos, this one actually has a plot to go along with the words that are scrolled across the screen.
It is actually a video with words in it
The video opens on a woman deep in thought, scanning the skyline. As the clip continues, it’s revealed that she’s on the trail of a man while the lyrics about not knowing what you have until it’s gone play out across the screen.
Eventually the woman gets hot on the trail and the couple is reunited, though the feeling of danger is still in the air. Take a look at the lyric video for ‘Until It’s Gone’.
The song is featured on Linkin Park’s ‘The Hunting Party’ album. The disc is due June 17 and is currently available for pre-order via Amazon. Linkin Park will be on the road this summer, joining Thirty Seconds to Mars and AFI for the 2014 ‘Carnivores’ Tour.

Lacuna Coil – ‘I Forgive (But I Won’t Forget Your Name)’
This song is one of Lacuna Coil’s more melodic efforts, though it does have a dark side to it with Scabbia and co-vocalist Andrea Ferro. She brings a stroung amount of fear and anxiety to it. ‘I Forgive (But I Won’t Forget Your Name)’ follows ‘Nothing Stands in Our Way‘ and ‘Die & Rise‘ from the band’s latest album, ‘Broken Crown Halo.’
Arch Enemy – ‘As the Pages Burn’
There’s a lot of anticipation surrounding Arch Enemy at the moment because the group makes the transition from Angela Gossow to Alissa White-Gluz as their new vocalist. But judging by the band’s new song ‘As the Pages Burn,’ fans have little to worry about.
White-Gluz ably keeps up with the band’s brutality and handles the melodic parts very well with the vocalist unleashing every ounce of passion into the vocals. And for old-school fans of Arch Enemy, the track is as heavy as ever, with some hard-hitting drum work, slick riffing and some standout work on the guitar scales.
White-Gluz tells,”‘As The Pages Burn’ is one of the first songs I wrote for ‘War Eternal.’ It’s a really fast, fun song, and I think it contrasts nicely to the first single we released, ‘War Eternal.’ It’s a taste of more of what’s to come on the album! Enjoy!”
‘As the Pages Burn’ is featured on Arch Enemy’s ‘War Eternal’ album, due in stores June 10 via Century Media. Pre-orders for the disc are available at Amazon (MP3 Album). The new song follows the release of the disc’s title track.

Fozzy – ‘Lights Go Out’
Mushroomhead – ‘QW‘Lights Go Out’ is a full-on rocker with plenty of blistering guitar and an accessible beat that you can nod your head to. Frontman Chris Jericho tells us of the track, “Step aside and suck it Jay Z, Fall Out Boy and Luke Bryan, because the SONG OF THE SUMMER has arrived! I guarantee ‘Lights Go Out’ will have you rockin’, dancin’, drinking, partying and losing your clothes after the first chorus. The Fozzy revolution has officially arrived!” The vocalist also recently stated of the song, “‘Lights Go Out’ represents a brand new color in the Fozzy spectrum — dark, sexy, sleek, dirty, heavy and catchy as f—.”
Fozzy are hitting the road this spring to build the buzz for their upcoming album.
The time has come for Mushroomhead to rock your world again! The band is preparing to drop their latest album ‘The Righteous & The Butterfly’ on May 13, and they’re exclusively debuting the disc’s lead single, ‘QWERTY’. As fans would hope, ‘QWERTY’ is filled with crunchy riffs, hard-hitting drums and all kinds of in-your-face attitude. And it won’t take long before you’re nodding your head along with this infectious rocker.
Bassist Dr. F tells, “‘QWERTY’ is one of those songs that is a anything goes, wide spectrum-style tune. From its inception, it was obvious that this would be a fun, creepy, unpredictable one.” (He adds, “The song came about around two years ago when Church and myself first joined ‘Shroom. Right around then, we were rehearsing for the annual ‘old-school’ show in Cleveland and our heads were full of nothing but Mushroomhead’s early catalog. It just so happened that we were in the pre-production stages of writing for a new album as well. The influence of the early ‘Shroom period is very evident in ‘QWERTY’ as it was inspired by songs like ‘Simpleton,’ ‘Ego-Trip’ and ’43,’ just to name a few.”)
The bassist concludes, “We wanted to fuse together the fun, dark keyboard driven sounds of the old-school with a raw, heavy modern twist. We feel as though we’ve accomplished this and couldn’t be more excited that it became the first single!”
You can hear ‘QWERTY’ on the upcoming ‘The Righteous & The Butterfly’ album. The disc is available for pre-order at Amazon and iTunes.
Nothing More -‘This Is the Time (Ballast)’
Nothing More are quickly rising to the surface with their current single ‘This Is the Time (Ballast),’ and the video for the track gives you a more visual representation of that struggle. The clip may be one of the wettest videos in rock history! The video is a mix of two worlds — one in which frontman Jonny Hawkins emerges from near drowning in the ocean while chained to a chunk of rock that has been keeping him submerged and another world in which the band perform while themselves being continually drenched by pouring water throughout the clip. As can be seen, Hawkins and Nothing More do eventually make it to the surface, but not without a fight. The San Antonio four-piece are making a rapid ascent into the rock world, with the band’s self-titled release set to drop on June 24. If you like the single, it’s currently available for purchase on iTunes, and you pick up more Nothing More swag at this location.
Wovenwar – Debut Single ‘All Rise’
One of the most buzzed about bands of early 2014 is Wovenwar, the new act featuring As I Lay Dying‘s instrumental members along with frontman Shane Blay of Oh, Sleeper fame. After spending the better part of a month teasing their new project, the group has issued their first new song called ‘All Rise.’ The track is an off-to-the-races rocker with drummer Jordan Mancino pushing the pace and plenty of masterful guitar work done by Nick Hipa and Phil Sgrosso. The song tackles the topic of having the chance to “rise again,” because of Tim Lambesis‘ arrest last year on murder-for-hire charges. Blay and bassist Josh Gilbert provide a more melodic vocal take on ‘All Rise,’ but the song is definitely a promising start from Wovenwar. They are looking at a late summer release for their debut disc. Keep an ear out for more coming from Wovenwar as their new album draws nearer.

It was reported on April 15 that Young had suffered a stroke, while a source reportedly close to the Young family claimed Malcolm could be dealing with Alzheimer’s, dementia or even cancer.

Steel Panther – ‘Gloryhole’
I have found a new song from the band Steel Panther. As you already know, Steel Panther’s songs are almost all very disturbing and sexual in content. This new song is also like that. The title is ‘Gloryhole’ and it is very explicit.
(At first I didn’t know what a gloryhole was – I had a totally different idea about what it might mean…until I saw the music video of them on youtube. I definitely know what it means now.)
The music video is set up completely in a sketchy bathroom covered in graffiti with holes in every single stall. Although there are some hot chicks in a few of the stalls, the rest are populated by trannies, little people, frat boys, (whatever they are), clowns and a multitude of religious figures. Predictably, the video gets pretty messy. Check out Steel Panther’s new video for ‘Gloryhole’ on youtube but remember, you heard it first here on EmoTionRadio.
Three Days Grace – ‘Painkiller’
Three Days Grace are taking the next step in their music career with new frontman Matt Walst.

It’s time to get “Real,” and by that we mean that the band “The Word Alive” have revealed that their new album title is ‘Real.’ The Word Alive are just starting to promote the album, and the song ‘Play the Victim’ recently showed up as the lead single. Now they have put up the official lyrics video on youtube.
Dreaming without understanding them
no clue to start with
a mess of scary thoughts
I’m not waiting for that
Nightmares that are so intense
in some nights they come through
a big puzzle without an end
at night I even start to believe in it
From monsters to people with burning heads
from hurting to raping
from torture to death
from incomprehensible to unimaginable
from being alone to being ripped apart
A liberation when I wake up
euphoric when I open my eyes and see the morning
a sigh of relief to lose the dream
and hope to conquer the fear again
to start the day with a mask instead of a tear
