Chat Pile Premiere “Tropical Beaches, Inc.” Music Video

Chat Pile have premiered a new video for their song “Tropical Beaches, Inc.” This track is from the band’s latest album “God’s Country.” The group commented:

“‘Tropical Beaches, Inc.‘ is a favorite among the band, and probably the song that’s the most fun to play live. It has some of the dumbest riffs on the whole album and we gleefully lose a couple brain cells every time we play it. The song itself is about the poisonous quest for endless wealth and status in America as seen through the eyes of late MLM pitchman Don Lapre. The Twyford-Rigleys worked out their own incredible interpretation of the song with this labor of love and managed to capture the spirit behind ‘Tropical Beaches, Inc.’ in their own very cool way. We absolutely love the DIY, midnight-movie vibe of the video, which speaks to our deep-cut VHS loving hearts!”

World Gone Cold (P.O.D., Demon Hunter, Etc.) Premiere “Opposites Attract” Music Video

World Gone Cold, the new project featuring Traa Daniels (P.O.D), Tim “Yogi” Watts (Demon Hunter), Andrew Stanton (Disciple), Mark Anthony (The Letter Black), and Ryland Raus (Attack Attack!), have premiered a new video for their new song “Opposites Attract.” This track is from the band’s new self-titled EP, which will be released on March 17. Raus said the following about the song:

“’Opposites Attract’ was an easy choice for our first single. It’s all of our favorites on the EP and it’s the strongest representation of World Gone Cold’s sound. We’ve been waiting so long to release these songs and we can’t wait for everyone to finally hear this music.”

The Ongoing Concept Premiere “Prisoner Again” Music Video

The Ongoing Concept have premiered a new video for their new song “Prisoner Again.” This track is from the band’s new album “Again,” which will be released on March 31.

The group commented:

“‘Prisoner Again‘ was one of the first songs we started writing, almost got scrapped multiple times, and then ended up becoming one of our favorites in the en. We wanted to bring a classic The Ongoing Concept sound but were struggling in finding a way to showcase a new era of the band. The missing piece of the puzzle was adding TJ and Andy’s vocals to the mix. Along with Kyle and my vocals, you get a taste of the range this album will have. Also, Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, King 810) absolutely crushed it with the mix!”

“Again” Track Listing:

01. “Again”
02. “Amends Again”
03. “Feel Again”
04. “Failures Fakes Again”

Kissing Candice Premiere “Inveterate” Music Video

Kissing Candice have premiered a new video for their new song “Inveterate.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “MANIFEST.”

Guitarist Dreamer commented:

“Inveterate is about an experience through an often treacherous path in life, where you know the outcome will be the same and one nut you can’t quit. It always results in a negative result, you could have avoided it the whole time… but you gave in.”

Vocalist Aunt Donna added:

“This video captured the vibe of the song very naturally. Beginning with a completely blank slate, we put our ideas in front of the camera and let Tom Flynn interpret them and bring them to life.”

“While searching for inspiration to write this song, I had grown tired of recounting past trauma and things that have hurt me and still affect me. It was making me feel powerless, and I wanted to take that power back and approach from a different angle. This song was born of a realization that all of my suffering has actually made me incredibly resilient and grounded, and I am not the weak person that I sometimes feel that I am. In reality, I have a certain confidence in life that I wouldn’t have if not for my losses and failures. They’ve given me a lot of good characteristics and shaped me into who I am today, and it’s a person I’m proud of.”

“On the road, we have a ‘jam room’ set up backstage at every show, where we play, practice, warm up and sometimes try out new ideas. Bone Church started life in a jam room on the ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’ tour. We’ve been bringing it closer and closer to life ever since, and finally, here it is. This one is for the fans – a further vision deeper into Slipknot’s history, which is still being written. Enjoy.”

Currents Premiere “Remember Me” Music Video

Currents have premiered a new video for their new song “Remember Me.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Death We Seek,” which will be released on May 5.

Vocalist Brian Wille commented:

“‘Remember Me‘ is a statement to our growing divide between one another. The dark side to technology’s double-edged-sword is access to a font of information and public discourse, curated to engagement, and skewed to individual interest and world-view. The further we go in, the further we’re separated from the middle ground and impartial truths.

Over the course of the Internet’s existence and the rise of social media empires, we’re beginning to fracture our relationships with one another over anything we can fight about, even going as far as to relish in the chaos and division. You can see the exact same event and come out with instant, infinite perspectives across the ideological spectrum; painted on a mass public forum accessible to billions of people. Driven further by algorithms and advertising, poison can spread quickly and have lasting outcomes on how we see each other and the world around us.

While disagreement and debate are not new, nor the real enemy here, we’ve all felt a particular strain to our closest ties over the last three years. This song is the release of that frustration and loss, and a call to find what brings us together and work through what sets us apart. Whether it’s a personal issue or an ideological impasse, we can all do better to practice empathy, understanding, and trust in those around us; that’s the only way we can collectively see through what’s real, and what’s interest-driven spectacle.”
