2021 Rebel Rock Festival Cancelled

The 2021 Rebel Rock festival in Orlando, FL has officially been cancelled. The event was unable to move forward due to unfit conditions related to severe weather.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend’s Rebel Rock Festival.

After this week’s severe weather and despite our crew’s effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.

We’ll share more information about refunds as soon as possible.”

Afterlife Premiere “Miles Away” Music Video

Afterlife have premiered a new video for their new song “Miles Away.” This track is from the band’s new album “Part Of Me,” which will be released on August 13.

Tyler Levenson commented:

“I would consider ‘Miles Away‘ to be one of the most personal songs on the album next to the title track ‘Part Of Me‘. This was one of the hardest songs I’ve ever had to write considering how recent the events were to me recording the song + it being one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to go through not only because of the heartbreak but the internal realizations I was experiencing at the time.

I knew while writing ‘Miles Away‘ that it was incredibly important to be as vulnerable as possible otherwise the song wouldn’t feel right to me, the lyrics had to come naturally and be honest no matter how difficult it was for me and I really think that is shown in the song. In my experience of going through a relationship ending I learned a very valuable lesson that stuck with me more then anything….”Don’t Wait Until It’s To Late“.

‘Miles Away‘ is just one of those songs you need to sit back and listen to because musically it’s the softest song we’ve ever released but lyrically it’s the heaviest.”

Afterlife Premiere “Envy” Music Video

Afterlife have premiered a new video for their new song “Envy.” This track is from the band’s new album “Part Of Me,” which will be released on August 13. Vocalist Tyler Levenson commented:

“Our goal with ‘Envy‘ from the start was to create a song that would keep you on the edge of your seat, a heavy track but heavy in a way that the band has never done before, heavy in a way that was exciting and fresh which I firmly believe we did. This song is very much a cautionary tale or warning about how the “grass isn’t always greener on the other side” and how being envious of someone or something is often a dangerous feeling. Wanting something that someone else has or seeing another person’s life and wishing it was you or that your life would be better if things were different which ultimately leaves you feeling unsatisfied once you obtain what you thought you wanted.”

Afterlife Premiere “Part Of Me” Video

Afterlife have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Part Of Me.” That effort will be released on August 13.

Tyler Levenson commented:

“I grew up in a turbulent household and had a strained relationship with my family on top of other issues growing up and for so many years. I just didn’t understand why things were the way they were which unfortunately had a lot of long-term effects on me later in life. But as an adult I was able to go back and have those conversations, breakdown my childhood and finally receive the closure I so desperately needed growing up.

I believe that this song is me putting that chapter of my life to rest, while recognizing that I am who I am today because of those events and that it will always be a part of me that I carry. Writing this song with our long-time friend and producer Zach Jones was an amazing feeling since he’s been there since day one with the band and he really knows how to bring the emotion out of me in the most honest and impactful way.”

Afterlife Premiere “Burn It Down” Music Video

Afterlife have premiered a new video for their new song “Burn It Down.” You can check that out below:

Tyler Levenson commented:

“‘Burn It Down‘ was written towards the tail end of the recording process and at that time we were many months into the global pandemic which personally resulted in a lot of anger and frustration with how things were being handled in not only our country but around the world. Writing and recording music in a time where there is this looming sense of fear and uncertainty put me in a place where I’ve never been before mentally and at that time I felt very hopeless and as if my “world” was on fire so I wanted the song to feel very empowering and anthemic in tone to counter how I was feeling which resulted in the lyrics “You bring the match, I’ll bring the gas, Together we’ll burn it and live among the ash” and “When push comes to shove, You gave us no choice” to really visualize that we’ve had enough and it’s time for change which I’m sure many others feel the same exact way as we do.”

Holding Absence Premiere “Afterlife” Video

Holding Absence have premiered a new video for their new song “Afterlife.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Greatest Mistake Of My Life,” which will be released on April 16. Lucas Woodland commented:

“We truly believe this song to be one of our best yet, with its pounding chorus and emotive vocals. Just listening to this song is making us itch for the return of live music so we can get out and play it to you all! With this song released, we’re one step closer to releasing our sophomore album ‘The Greatest Mistake Of My Life‘ and we can’t wait for you guys to hear it!”

Afterlife Premiere New Song “Wasting Time”

Afterlife have premiered a new song titled “Wasting Time.” Tyler Levenson told Knotfest.com the following:

“‘Wasting Time‘ was one of the first songs we wrote when we entered the studio back in March and at that time the world was just a complete mess and quite frankly still is you know? We were all fed up with things and wanted to write something that encapsulated those feelings we were going through at that time. I think ‘Wasting Time‘ is a mood in its own cause we touch on a lot within the album, it’s going to be a great listen when it’s released.”
