Islander Premiere New Song “What Do You Gotta Lose?”

Islander have premiered a visualizer for their new song “What Do You Gotta Lose?.” You can check that out below:

Mikey Carvajal said the following about the song:

“‘What Do You Gotta Lose?’ is a song about hoping for a better tomorrow. I’ve personally dealt with suicidal thoughts in my life and I’ve met a lot of fans that have as well. If suicide could save our lives, we’d all have done that by now. It doesn’t. It only ends the possibility of it getting better. This song is a plea to anyone that hears it to hold on. Joy comes in the morning.”

The following was also said about the visualizer in an official press release:

“The band also released an accompanying artistic visual, produced by 12 Inch Media, featuring the stunning artwork imagery from John Wellman. In partnership with the mental health awareness non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms, the video points viewers to resources for anyone dealing with anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts.”

Chad Moses, Director of Outreach and Experience at To Write Love on Her Arms, added:

“This past year has taken so much away from so many people. It has stolen the chance to make memories, a sense of security, hugs, high-fives, and opportunities to be vulnerable. I think it’s going to take some time and some frequent reminders to recall the truth that we were never expected to get through life alone. Every day we wake up is an invitation to live in the presence of others — friends, family, counselors, co-workers; and no disease, circumstance, or challenge waives your right to personal connection. I hear that message so clearly in this new Islander track. Regardless of what you are walking through, there is a place for you here. You belong here, and you are in good company.”

Enforced Premiere “Curtain Fire” Visualizer Video

Enforced have premiered a visualizer video for their new song “Curtain Fire.” This track is from the band’s new album “Kill Grid,“ which will be released on March 12.

Knox Colby commented:

“Also known as ‘the creeping barrage,’ curtain fire is an artillery tactic used in tandem with advancing ground troops. It’s meant to soften up defenses or wipe them out completely. The lyrical narrative is on the defending end of curtain fire; ruminations on the death of soldiers, their grieving families, and how they’ll eventually be forgotten through time (a folded flag in a garage). The last few lines flip to the perspective of the attacker. With a very apathetic and unsympathetic attitude towards all the damage created, paving a parking lot over the conflict.”

Will Wagstaff added:

“This song came together from the supernova of many other riffs/versions of the song. It was originally an up-tempo fast metal beat type of song. We kind of scraped that when we came up with the intro and realized it could be a really catchy song. Knox‘s lyrics work perfectly with this song and make it extremely catchy along with the head bashing and solos.”

Accept Premiere New Song “Zombie Apocalypse”

Accept have shared a visualizer for their new song “Zombie Apocalypse.” This track is from the band’s new album “Too Mean To Die,” which will be released on January 29. Mark Tornillo commented:

“They’re everywhere, they can’t put them (mobile phones) down. They can’t keep them charged; they can’t take their eyes off the screen! It’s a zombie apocalypse!”

10 Years Premiere New Song “The Unknown”, Reveal Details For New Album “Violent Allies”

10 Years have premiered a visualizer for their new song “The Unknown.” This track is from the band’s new album “Violent Allies,” which will be released on September 18.

Jesse Hasek said the following about the song:

“We’re in a wide-open world we’ve created, but we have to step back and look at where we are and adapt. We’re all in the unknown right now.”

He also added the following about the album:

“We don’t ever try to recreate what we’ve done in the past. We knew we had to challenge ourselves to see what we had in us. If it’s not stressful, you’re not challenging yourself to grow. From the beginning, music has always been therapy and an outlet. We let ourselves enjoy the process, be vulnerable, and talk about those emotions. We got back to why we love music with the maturity of where we’re at in our lives. We were able to harness that love of creating from a wiser and more developed perspective.”

Brian Vodinh continued:

“We were hard on ourselves. It was more intense than during records past, but it was worth it. The outcome was exactly what we wanted it to be. Time spent in the studio or simply collaborating on our vision was a catalyst in reaching creative clarity like we’ve never had before. It reminded all three of us that this bond created over the last two decades is best served when individual voices becomes collective vision. It was fun, because we were back to being brothers. No matter how frustrated we might get, once we looked out at it, the energy was unexplainable. Our mission was to really connect with the songs, break them down, and build them back up.”

“The younger versions of us would’ve been going to Hollywood every night and partying. It was different. We actually came up with a lot of ideas, melody tweaks, and had really good brainstorming sessions in the car on the PCH. The whole vibe contributed to what the record is. All we cared about was writing and recording the best songs we possibly could. We felt like we had something to prove, especially to our A&R guy and the president of North America for Mascot Ron Burman.”

“We came back to this quote, ‘There’s a strange power in the joining of unlike things’. There is something incredibly special about how we create. ‘Violent Allies‘ is the perfect way to summarize it. We go through hell facing all challenges head-on, but the final product is worth it. Simultaneously, it reflects the state of divisiveness in The World. Everything is so political. Everyone is angry at each other. We’re better when we come together though.”
