Killswitch Engage to support Iron Maiden on Legacy Of The Beast Tour!

Posted on November 17, 2017

Following the massively successful global tour of 2016-17 in support of their 16th studio album The Book Of Souls IRON MAIDEN will take to the road again in 2018 with a series of arena and festival shows in Europe on the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour opening in Tallinn, Estonia on May 26 and finishing at the o2 Arena, London on August 10.

The UK dates are:


The full European tour schedule can be found on ironmaiden.com and the tour is expected to continue in 2019.

The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further, “As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours. We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too. “For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

Killswitch Engage will be Maiden’s Special Guest on headline European shows from May 26 to July 1 inclusive, and in the UK from July 31 to Aug 10 inclusive. Guests on other shows are currently being finalized and will be announced soon.

Most shows go on sale Friday 24th November, please check IronMaiden.com for full details. As always, there will be an exclusive presale for Fan Club members, starting Monday 20th.

Trivium announce UK headline tour with support from Code Orange, Power Trip and Venom Prison!

Posted on November 6, 2017

Modern US heavy hitters TRIVIUM are excited to announce their return to the UK and Europe in Spring 2018. This will be the Florida band’s first visit since the October release of their blistering eighth album, ‘The Sin and The Sentence’.

Presented by Metal Hammer, ‘The Sin and The Sentence Tour’ kicks off in Koln on March 11, and piledrives across Europe, wrapping up in the UK on April 21 at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. TRIVIUM will be joined by special guests CODE ORANGE (UK only), POWER TRIP (all dates) and VENOM PRISON (all dates).

TRIVIUM declare, “It’s time to bring ‘The Sin and The Sentence’ to the UK and Europe! One of the greatest things about headlining a tour is picking the bands to round out the bill. CODE ORANGE, POWER TRIP, and VENOM PRISON are not only the leading edge of the next wave of great metal acts, they are also three of our personal favourites. We are going to dive deep into our back catalogue to pair up the new tunes with some older classics and a few rarities we haven’t played in a long time. See you all very soon!”

Metal Hammer adds, “Heavy music is on absolute fire right now, and this bill proves it. Metal Hammer couldn’t be more delighted to be supporting our brothers in TRIVIUM alongside three truly excellent young bands in CODE ORANGE, POWER TRIP, and VENOM PRISON on a tour that is going to tear 2018 to shreds. See you next Spring, motherfuckers!”

Upon release, TRIVIUM’s ‘The Sin and The Sentence’ clinched the top spot on both Billboard’s ‘Top Rock Albums’ and the ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart (their second #1). Globally, the record made a stellar impact too, arriving Top 5 in Canada and Australia while cracking the Top 20 in the UK and Germany, scoring some of the band’s highest chart positions to date. Metal Hammer remark that “[TRIVIUM are] quite simply one of the best bands in modern metal.” Watch the latest video for new song ‘Thrown Into The Fire’. ‘The Sin and The Sentence’ is available at all DSPs and at www.trivium.org.

Uncompromising Pittsburgh natives CODE ORANGE continue their meteoric rise, recently gracing the front covers of both Kerrang! and Revolver magazines. The no-holds-barred band have been converting new fans across North America this Summer, in support of ground-breaking current album, ‘Forever’. The group will play directly before TRIVIUM each night in the UK.

Texan thrash band POWER TRIP are sure to be performing choice cuts from their widely praised, second album, ‘Nightmare Logic’. POWER TRIP tell us, “We’re honoured to come to Europe for our fifth time, especially with such a massive band as TRIVIUM. We’re excited to watch and learn from TRIVIUM and hang out with our mates in VENOM PRISON. The end of the tour has CODE ORANGE joining the package; it’ll be good to play with those lunatics again. That’s it. That’s all. Don’t fuck up and miss this tour.”

Hardcore death metal five-piece VENOM PRISON will open proceedings each night. The hotly-tipped UK act have had a whirlwind twelve months since putting out debut full-length ‘Animus’, including winning a Metal Hammer Golden God Award for “Best Newcomer”. VENOM PRISON enthuse, “TRIVIUM have been at the forefront of heavy music for over a decade and being asked to join such an incredible line up is an honour. We can go from big stages to house shows and are ready to annihilate them all. The scale of this tour is going be a new experience for us and we are grateful for this opportunity!”

Code Orange release alt-J remixes

Posted on November 3, 2017

alt-J and Code Orange have released new remixes of alt-J tracks “Adeline” and “Hit Me Like That Snare.”

alt-J drummer Thom Sonny Green has long been a fan of Code Orange’s music, which prompted the collaboration.

Code Orange guitarist / vocalist Shade explains, “I wanted to dismantle the songs entirely and completely rebuild them as if they had come from a different world, and that’s what I did. See the world with Code Orange vision. No boxes, no boundaries, no fear.”

alt-J was equally excited about the collaboration stating, “It’s not often we get to collaborate with heavy artists so having Code Orange step up and give us two amazing remixes is a real treat. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.”

Both remixes are available today via Canvasback & Roadrunner.

Zakharov previously co-directed with Shade on Code Orange’s animated video for “Mud” which you can view here.

alt-J are Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Green. Their debut album An Awesome Wave won the prestigious Mercury Prize in the UK and sold Gold in the US and Canada. Their second album, This Is All Yours was nominated for a Grammy for Best Alternative Album. The band have headlined festivals across the globe and sold out London’s O2 arena and New York’s Madison Square. Their latest album Relaxer is out now.

Check out Turnstile’s brand new song/video for ‘Real Thing’

Posted on November 3, 2017

Turnstile have returned with a new single and music video.  “Real Thing,” the first new music from the band since 2016’s Move Thru Me EP, is streaming today on Turnstile’s YouTube channel accompanied by an official music video directed by Mortis Studio (Adult Swim, Earl Sweatshirt). “Real Thing” debuted earlier today on the VICELAND TV Network and prefaces the release of Turnstile’s Roadrunner Records debut LP, which is set to arrive in winter 2018.

Turnstile frontman Brendan Yates explains, “’Real Thing’ is about the idea of happiness being made up in the imagination. The way you imagine perfection from your past can blind you to real beauty and life right in front of you, resulting in a circle of discontent.”

Tomorrow, November 3rd, Turnstile will begin a month long U.S. tour with The Story So Far and Drug Church (full itinerary attached).  Tickets are on sale now.

Comprised of Brendan Yates (Vocals), Franz Lyons (Bass/Vocals), Brady Ebert (Guitars), Pat McCrory (Guitars), and Daniel Fang (Drums), Turnstile has gripped listeners and press around the globe with their, “…melodic riffs, bright-eyed spirit, and riotous sets…” as noted by The New Yorker. NPR revered Turnstile as, “…freewheeling and heavy…with shout-along choruses and grooves that do more than just open up the pit,” with The Washington Post adding, “…the unabashed funkiness of Turnstile feels so invigorating.” Noisey declared, “…(Turnstile) has positively exploded, moving from exciting prospect to one of the most talked about bands in hardcore,” while Stereogum asserted, “Right now, the biggest band in hardcore might be Turnstile… .” Thrasher Magazine  wrote “These guys are powerful,” with GQ agreeing, “Turnstile is more than a good hardcore band—they’ve got a whole movement behind them.”


Trivium Thrown Into The Fire official video!

Posted on October 27, 2017

Trivium have shared an official music video for “Thrown Into The Fire,” which is featured on their new album THE SIN AND THE SENTENCE and is streaming today at www.trivium.org. THE SIN AND THE SENTENCE is currently available at all DSPs, www.trivium.org, and music retailers worldwide.
Trivium are set to return to the road in North America later this week, embarking on a co-headline tour with Arch Enemy, featuring support from While She Sleeps and Fit for an Autopsy.  The tour will kick off on October 27th in Orlando, Florida and make its way across the U.S. and Canada before finishing on December 6th in Houston, Texas. Tickets for all dates are on sale now.  For complete tour information and tickets, please visit www.trivium.org.
Recorded with producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira) at Santa Ana, California’s Hybrid Studios, THE SIN AND THE SENTENCE finds Trivium – Matt Heafy (lead vocals, lead guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar, vocals), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Alex Bent (drums) – returning with their first new music since their celebrated 2015 LP, SILENCE IN THE SNOW.  The new LP also features the band’s first recordings with new drummer Bent who joined the band last year.
Earlier this summer, Trivium debuted the album’s incendiary title track, “The Sin And The Sentence,” the official music video for which has amassed over 3 million views in under three months. “Trivium have come roaring back,” declared Loudwire, adding, “’The Sin And The Sentence’ combines a truckload of classic Trivium dynamics to create something fresh.”
Metal Hammer declared the album, “Sounds like a band determined to absorb all of their past and better it, showing once and for all who they are and what Trivium are: quite simply one of the best bands in modern metal.” Rock Sound praised its “off-the-charts energy that will get circle pits spinning in seconds,” while Total Guitar simply stated, “The Sin & The Sentence crackles with a renewed exuberance and fiery aplomb.”
Just two years ago, Trivium made a stunning impact with SILENCE IN THE SNOW, arriving at #3 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart and #19 on the overall Billboard 200 marking Trivium’s third consecutive Top 20 debut. Hailed by Alternative Press as the “the purest metal of the year,” SILENCE IN THE SNOW featured the Top 10 Rock Radio hit “Until The World Goes Cold” and stands as a long gestating creative milestone for the acclaimed band.
Trivium catapulted into the first ranks of modern metal with 2004’s Roadrunner debut, ASCENDANCY, which was named “Album of the Year” by Kerrang! 2006’s THE CRUSADE incorporated new melodic colors into the band’s sound, resulting in widespread critical applause and a top 25 Billboard 200 debut. SHOGUN followed two years later and received even greater acclaim and chart success, including a #1 debut on the UK’s Rock Albums Chart. In 2011, IN WAVES hit #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums,” not to mention a stunning top 15 debut on the overall Billboard 200. Two years later, VENGEANCE FALLS arrived at #2 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart. VENGEANCE FALLS went on to make the Top 10 charts in Australia and Germany, representing some of band’s highest international chart debuts to date.

Motionless In White share Necessary Evil video!

Posted on October 16, 2017

Motionless In White have shared their official music video for “Necessary Evil,” which is directed by Max Moore (Code Orange, Of Mice & Men) and streaming now on the band’s official YouTube channel. “Necessary Evil” – which ships to Active Rock radio outlets nationwide today – is featured on the band’s new album GRAVEYARD SHIFT, which arrived earlier this year at #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart marking Motionless In White’s second consecutive #1 on the chart.

Tomorrow Motionless In White will kick-off their U.S. headline GRAVEYARD SHIFT TOUR with a performance at Las Vegas, Nevada’s Brooklyn Bowl. The coast-to-coast trek will see Motionless In White traversing the U.S. through the end of October where they will wrap up the run with a very special Halloween performance at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s Electric Factory. Motionless In White will be joined by Roadrunner label mates The Amity Affliction, Miss May I and William Control on the upcoming tour.

Touted as one of the “Most Anticipated” heavy albums of 2017, Alternative Press exclaimed, “MIW make sure to leave no gravestone unturned as they explore the vast underworld of rock,” on GRAVEYARD SHIFT, while Rock Sound declared, “Every cut brings something new to the table… tugging at the heartstrings one moment and cutting straight to the bone the next.” Kerrang! declared, “Motionless In White are out to prove themselves the kings of goth-punk and their leader, Chris Motionless, is ready to march them into the black.” GRAVEYARD SHIFT features the Top 20 Active Rock hit, “LOUD (F*ck It)” and the thunderous single “Eternally Yours.”

GRAVEYARD SHIFT follows 2014’s chart-topping REINCARNATE, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Top Rock Albums” chart as well as at #9 on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200. Motionless In White’s third studio album was highlighted by the blockbuster title track, a top 20 Active Rock radio favorite accompanied by a striking companion video now boasting nearly 14 million individual views at YouTube alone.

Founded in 2005, Motionless In White has won over audiences worldwide with their aggressive music and arresting imagery. The band – currently comprising lead singer Chris Motionless, guitarists Ryan Sitkowski and Ricky Horror, bassist Devin “Ghost” Sola, and drummer Vinny Mauro – have proven a ferocious and inventive live act, earning an increasingly fervent fan following via countless headline shows, festival sets, and tours alongside such iconic acts as Slipknot, Korn, and Breaking Benjamin.

Code Orange unleash The Mud!

Posted on October 16, 2017

Code Orange have shared their official music video for industrial-tinged monster “The Mud,” which debuted in the USA during Adult Swim’s Toonami. The animated video, which was directed by Dmitry Zakharov and Code Orange’s Shade, is streaming now on the band’s YouTube Channel and on Adult Swim’s website. Earlier this year Code Orange was announced for Adult Swim’s 2017 Singles Series, which features 52 new tracks from a variety of artists over the course of 52 weeks.

Recorded with producers Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA and Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios in Salem, MA, the album FOREVER debuted earlier this year immediately staking its claim as one of 2017’s top releases and placing Code Orange firmly at the front of the pack. The Independent stated, “One of the early 21st century’s leading innovators in heavy music.” “Code Orange are winning over new fans in record time. Give them a chance and you’ll soon be theirs,” commented Upset, adding “Code Orange are nothing short of spectacular.” Having already called it, “The most important heavy release of 2017, ” Metal Hammer elaborated, “Forever isn’t just a great hardcore record – it’s one that’s ripped up the blueprint and pieced it back together in the most outrageously breathtaking way. This is a stone cold modern classic.” Shortlist agreed, calling it “life-affirmingly exhilarating,” with Terrorizer declaring it, “A confrontational, wilfully challenging, and obsessively interesting release.” Kerrang! said, “Hardcore’s most exciting band, drop the fiercest, most original noise of 2017.”

Not just beloved in the UK, in the US media Rolling Stone included FOREVER as one of the 50 Best Albums of 2017 So Far and selected Code Orange as one of 10 New Artists You Need to Know: February 2017 exclaiming, “FOREVER captures some of the most punishing noise the band has recorded to date, featuring songs rife with sudden transitions to still-harsher textures.” The Fader featured Code Orange as one of their 13 Artists You Need To Know About In 2017, while Nerdist declared, “Code Orange is back and heavier than ever,” adding, “These kids were heavy before, but they just increased density by a hundred percent and then crushed all livings under their weight.” NPR praised Code Orange’s FOREVER, asserting that it, “…is among its most bruising works, with surprises throughout,” while Pitchfork asserted, “the heavy rock mainstream could use a good razing, and Code Orange are well-equipped for the demolition job.”
