CANDIRIA's WHILE THEY WERE SLEEPING is one of my most-anticipated albums of the fall, and today comes a full-band "play-through" video for the title track. Available on October 7 through the folks at Metal Blade Records, While They Were Sleeping is a concept album conceived by the band's lead vocalist Carley Coma. It tells the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City. Check out the new video below...

Let me tell you a story about the time a moose, a shark, a chicken and a purple alligator entered a barn somewhere in Canada... 

That was the scene earlier this year when Alberta's Dan Davidson filmed a video for "Found," a single released in May that found an audience this summer, cracking the CMT Top 20 in Canada, and racking up over 320,000 global plays on Spotify. Nearly five months in, the $500 music video is still gaining steam, and now it's starting to make a rumble here in the 'States. Check it out below, along with some of Dan's comments on the experience...

Music Video: METALLICA - "Moth Into Flame"

Written by

Earlier this morning, METALLICA debuted a new song from their forthcoming HARDWIRED... TO SELF-DESTRUCT while making an appearance on the Howard Stern Show. "Moth Into Flame" is a jam, and I'm digging it. It's groovy, and along with the song comes a Tom Kirk (MUSE)-directed music video that's been unleashed via Metallica.com. Update: Check it out in the player below!

As my boys from PRODUCT OF HATE (I've been working with them since 2010) prepare to hit the road next week for the 2016 Hammer Out the Hate Tour with their Napalm Records labelmates, HAMMER FIGHT, the band is unleashing a preview of what to expect with an all-new music video filmed on their last tour. "...As Your Kingdom Falls" (Tour Edition) re-visits a fan-favorite song from their debut album, BURIED IN VIOLENCE (a lyric video cut by yours truly was previously-released), set to footage shot and edited by Josh Apple of Monobloc Studios during PRODUCT OF HATE's spring 2016 tour with MUSHROOMHEAD, MADAME MAYHEM and SUMO CYCO, the video is a taste of what a PRODUCT OF HATE live show is like. Check out the new video below!

After joining Soilwork, Unearth, Wovenwar, and Darkness Divided for a North American tour this fall, Motor City thrashers Battlecross will finish off 2016 with their annual headlining run, the third installment of the "Winter Warriors Tour"! This year, Metal Blade label-mates Allegaeon and Necromancing the Stone will join the bill as support, making this one tour not to be missed!

Covered: Korn x Faith No More - "We Care A Lot"

Written by

The October issue of Metal Hammer Magazine happens to be their 30th Anniversary issue, and to celebrate they've done something special with their monthly CD, serving up DECADES OF DESTRUCTION, a sixteen track compilation of covers. While there's much to be curious about (full tracklisting below), it's the lead track that I was most curious about - a classic song by my favorite band of all-time, covered by another of my favorites. Check out KORN performing FAITH NO MORE's "We Care A Lot" below. It took a little bit for me to get into it, but it's a grower...

It's looking like a good fall for music, and one upcoming record that's on my radar is GREEN DAY's REVOLUTION RADIO. Due out on Reprise Records on October 7, a few samples of new music have already been released, the latest of which comes in music video form. "Bang Bang" was directed by RANCID frontman Tim Armstrong, who shot the new clip in Venice Beach, CA. Check it out via the Facebook player below...

By now it should be little secret to readers of this site that GHOST is one of my favorite current bands. After three fantastic albums and an EP, the band has just-announced that their POPESTAR EP will hit the streets this Friday, September 16, 2016. Consisting of four cover songs and one new original track, a new installment of "The Summoning" has been issued to serve as a preview of this week's release...

Watch: BELL BIV DEVOE - "Run"

Written by

I might be known as "The Rock Father" now, but let me tell you - I went through some years in the late 80s were I was really into New Edition and the various spin-off projects that its members embarked on, one of which is BELL BIV DEVOE. And I still dig 'em. Now, it's been around fifteen years since we've had new music from Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe, but earlier this summer they emerged with a new track called "Run," and today they video hit the streets. Borrowing a sample from the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize," which technically also samples Herb Alpert's "Rise" (the soundtrack to many visits to the grocery store as a child). The 90s nostalgia wave is real, the BBD makes a welcome return with this one - a clip that also pays tribute to RUN-DMC, and features a nod to their own "Poison" as well. Check it out...

My boys from PRODUCT OF HATE are hitting the road once more, teaming up with their Napalm Records labelmates, HAMMER FIGHT, for a Fall Tour set to hit markets in the eastern half of the United States. The "Hammer Out the Hate" Tour kicks-off on September 28 at Blackthorn 51 in Queens, NYC, wrapping October 15 back on their home turf, Route 20 Outhouse in Sturdevant/Racine, Wisconsin. Check out the full details below!

Last night at dinner, my wife asked me "Why don't you post about stuff like this?," pointing to the new album by JIMMY EAT WORLD. Thing is, I have posted about the band (one of her favorites) in the past, but there is a little thing called "time" that I'm always up against. That said, when news hit my inbox this morning with a link to JIMMY EAT WORLD's latest lyric video, there was no way I could pass on posting it. Check out "Sure & Certain" below, then pick-up the new album INTEGRITY BLUES when it hits stores on October 21.
