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.”

SHVPES Release New Acoustic EP

SHVPES have released a new acoustic EP featuring reimagined versions of “Undertones,“ “Renegades,” and “Afterlife.“ You can stream that below:

Griffin Dickinson commented:

“Whilst out on our first American tour earlier this year, we found a lot of radio station/ media outlets were asking us to come and do some acoustic sessions. Naturally, we’d never contemplated the idea, considering the sound & atmosphere of our live shows is the antithesis of a chilled, acoustic performance.

Nonetheless we decided to give it a go. We sent out a message on social media to see if any fans had a battered/ unused acoustic guitar they didn’t mind lending to the cause. Thankfully a very kind lady in Chicago did just that. Youssef & Ryan set about transcribing a few select SHVPES songs, taking a more flamenco inspired approach. Approximately 24 hours before our first scheduled acoustic performance, the SHVPES team assembled in a toilet somewhere in Tennessee & ran through the set a few times, ironing out any creases. The following day, we (unknowingly) broadcast it to 25,000 people. Thankfully, upon review, it sounded a lot better than expected.

We were all so pleased with the result & saw a lot of opportunities for further improvements/ inflections within the music. We continued doing these acoustic performances as and when they came, each time adding some new degree of flare to the songs. By the end we’d completely reinvented the feel of them, to the point we felt we (and as the listeners had pointed out) should be recording these so and giving them the attention they deserve.

So around the time we were recording One Man Army, we did just that. This time taking an even more outrageous approach, to truly transform these songs and squeeze as much of our outside influences into these songs.

Here is ‘Undertones‘, ‘Renegades‘ & ‘Afterlife‘, reimagined.”
