Counterparts Premiere New Song “Wings Of Nightmares”, Announce Fall Tour

Counterparts have premiered a new song titled “Wings Of Nightmares.” This track is from their new album “Nothing Left To Love,” which will be released on November 1.

Brendan Murphy said the following about the song:

“[It’s] a no brainer first single because it’s a perfect blend of old and new Counterparts. Sounds like if we tried to rewrite a song off ‘Prophets‘ in our late 20’s. It’s one of the most ‘Counterparts‘ songs on the record if that makes sense. I think it’s got something for everyone.”

He also added the following about the album:

“I know I’ve said this for every record we’ve ever released but… ‘Nothing Left To Love‘ is best Counterparts record. I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything ground breaking, but as we grow and progress we just get better at writing Counterparts songs, and that’s all we’ve wanted to do. If you fuck with the band you’ll probably love it.”

Northlane Premiere “Bloodline” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Alien”

Northlane have premiered a new video for their new song “Bloodline.” This track is from the band’s new album “Alien,” which will be released on August 2.

Marcus Bridge commented:

“I was raised in hell but I made it out. Raised in a place I shouldn’t have been, and no child should have been. But I’ve been able to break free.”

“‘Bloodline‘ was one of the first songs that came about in the writing process for the album. When we were trying to decide what we wanted to write about, we decided early on that we wanted to keep the album pretty personal. I wanted to tell the stories of my upbringing and the ups and downs that come along with that.”

“It talks about that idea of growing up in a broken home despite all odds and what might be expected of someone who grows up like that. You are able to be what people think of you and break out of that spiral, that terrible world. For me, that’s a mix of telling the story simple, but then it also tells some parts of my story in really fine detail.

For example, the second verse goes into a lot of moments that I actually remember growing up and these landmarks — all these things I remember seeing. This song is a perfect way to sum up the album and also be the first toe in the water to be able to tell this story.”

He also added the following about the video, which was directed by Jason Eshraghian:

“We’ve grown as a band together with Jason. He understands the stories we’re trying to tell through our videos. When it came down to the more personal subject, I don’t think it would have been possible to do it with someone we hadn’t worked with before because I don’t know if I would have felt comfortable having someone that we hadn’t worked with before telling this story and someone that doesn’t really know me and know how I want to tell this story.

Jason delivered again, and this video is one of my favorite videos that I have ever done. It goes into some fine detail once again about that environment of growing up around parents who use drugs, violent parents and all that stuff that a lot of people do deal with that maybe don’t feel comfortable talking about. This video is going to make you feel pretty uncomfortable, but I think it’s a story that isn’t really told often enough.”

“Alien” Track Listing:

01. “Details Matter”
02. “Bloodline”
03. “4D”
04. “Talking Heads”
05. “Freefall”
06. “Jinn”
07. “Eclipse”
08. “Rift”
09. “Paradigm”
10. “Vultures”
11. “Sleepless”
