Heart Of A Coward Announce New Vocalist, Premiere “Collapse” Music Video

Heart Of A Coward have premiered a new video for their new single “Collapse.” This is the band’s first song with new vocalist Kaan Tasan (No Consequence).

The band commented:

“With over 200 submissions to consider, we all had something specific in mind. By no means did we want a carbon copy. We wanted someone that could give the band a new lease of life. As soon as we heard Kaan‘s demos we all felt it was a no brainer. Already a good friend of the band, Kaan has been on the road with us and seen it all – so is no stranger to the way we do things.

We are all really excited to release our new single ‘Collapse‘ This new chapter has rekindled our love for the band and writing music together.”

Tasan also offered his own statement:

“It’s been an exciting new path joining Heart of a Coward. I’ve always been a fan of the band so to be involved in writing the next record is an awesome experience to say the least! The transformation has felt completely natural and everything has clicked straight away. It’s an exciting year for the band and I’m looking forward to taking to the stage and leading our most ferocious live shows to date!”

Tour Dates:

05/30 London, UK – Boston Music Room
05/31 Birmingham, UK – Asylum 2

Vocalist Tim Goergen To Exit Within The Ruins

Within The Ruins have announced that they will be parting ways with vocalist Tim Goergen due to “recent and ongoing health issues.” Steve Tinnon has been recruited to take his place.

Guitarist Joe Cocchi said the following:

“Hey everyone, Joe here with some news for you all. Within the Ruins and Tim have decided to part ways due to some recent and ongoing health issues. This is a tough one for all of us, and as saddened as we are to no longer have Tim with us, a new chapter begins. Tim will be passing the torch to our good friend Steve Tinnon and we are extremely excited for the future of this band. We’d like to invite you all to Tim‘s final two shows with us.

April 19th – Brooklyn, NY at Kingsland
April 21st- Worcester, MA at New England Metal and Hardcore Fest”

Goergen also commented:

“Hello my friends, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I announce my departure from Within The Ruins. I want to be very clear that this split is mutual and I have nothing but love for my brothers and vise versa. I am at a point in my life that won’t allow me to tour anymore, and touring is a huge part of this band. It breaks my heart, but it is what it is. Over the last ten years I have had the absolute privilege/pleasure to tour the world and record 5 amazing releases with the most driven and talented musicians on the fucking planet.

These guys are more than just friends and bandmates, they are my brothers. Through ups and downs, lineup changes, a van flip that nearly killed us, and countless beers/good times we are bonded forever. These experiences, memories, and friends I’ve made along the way are things that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I ask that you all continue to support my guys just as you always have while I was in the band.

Thank you to our manager Scott Lee and Entertainment One / Goodfight for always having our backs and keeping our best interest in mind. Thank you to my friends, family, and my woman for supporting me while I lived out my dream. And of course I would like to thank our fans for their undying support and love. You guys kept me pushing forward the whole time.

I want to be clear that I am not done making music, so keep an eye out for projects from me in the future. I am excited for what lies ahead and am ready for this new chapter in my life.

Let’s get fucking crazy one more time!”

Tinnon added:

“I am very excited to announce that I am now singing for Within The Ruins! These guys have been great friends to me and my previous band for nearly a decade, and after two years of no longer touring or being in a band I’ve been given a second chance to do what I love again. I want to thank Tim for giving me his blessing on this moving forward. I’ve got big shoes to fill and I won’t let you down! I’m extremely honored to be part of a group of such talented musicians, and I can’t wait to start this next chapter of the band’s career. See you all soon!”

Kayla Dixon (Witch Mountain) Joins Dress The Dead

Dress The Dead, the band featuring ex-Forbidden guitarist Craig Locicero, have announced the addition of singer Kayla Dixon (Witch Mountain) to the group. She is taking over for Peter Dolving (ex-The Haunted) who left the band in March 2017. A new song with Dixon on vocals, titled “There Goes The Sun,” can be heard below:

Locicero commented:

“We are happy and proud to announce Kayla Dixon as our new singer in Dress the Dead!

It has been a long and bumpy road getting to this point for a lot of reasons. The main thing is finding the right fit after losing Peter Dolving so unexpectedly. That took us by surprise, to say the least.

After many months of listening to submissions and not feeling we had the proper replacement, Kayla literally dropped out of the sky with a random text to me on October 9th. She basically said she was turned onto DtD through a mutual friend and loved our song ‘1969.’ She wanted an audition.

I had actually witnessed Kayla playing with her other band Witch Mountain almost a year to the day she texted me. I had literally walked away from watching her perform that night and thought to myself ‘That girl is going to be a STAR!’

At that same time, we’d already had Peter so there was no thought of ever having a chance to play and write music with Kayla. In fact, I never even saw myself being in a band with a female lead vocalist. Let alone a super Bad Ass like Kayla. We all could not be happier that it happened!

Fate is a strange beast and we can not always see what’s coming around the bend.

Needless to say when she arrived at our studio from Portland (where she lives) a few days later to audition, it completely knocked us sideways! From the very first note she sang with us every one of us played better. There was the excitement and chemistry we’d been looking for! Kayla was our new front-WOMAN and we had all found each other in the most appropriate and organic way possible. Through the appreciation and love of music. That’s what it’s ALL about.

Our first show with Kayla will be supporting the Killian on Command (All Bay Area thrash stars VIO-LENCE tribute) for the Sean Killian benefit at the the Midway in San Francisco on January 20th. It’s an honor to be included in such an important event to help our Bay Area Brother.

The first song we are releasing is called ‘There Goes The Sun.’ Produced by Robb Flynn and recorded by Zack Oren at Sharkbite Studious. It seemed appropriate as our first selection because it shows how massively diverse Kayla is. This girl can hit ALL the gears, intensity, emotion, guttural, melodic and every register. Kayla simply has it all and TGTS shows it.

Now DtD can finally be a band again. Grow together, play shows, record our music and find the home that best fits us.

It’s really all we ever wanted and it’s an exciting time.

Please share ‘There Goes The Sun’ with all of your friends. Let them know Dress the Dead is alive and well!

Cheers!

Craig Locicero”

Dixon added:

“A mutual friend reached out to me about Dress the Dead. One of my first thoughts was, ‘I don’t know if I’m ready or even at an appropriate talent level to be replacing someone like Peter Dolving for these guys.’ I’d battled with the idea in my head for several months before finally reaching out. I had listened to and loved 1969 but what really hit me hard was when I heard the other songs that are still unreleased that they sent me. I had no idea how musically diverse this band would turn out to be!”
