VERIDIA Release “Pretty Lies” feat. Matty Mullins

VERIDIA_GROUP_1_RSB

Alternative band VERIDIA from Nashville, TN has released a music video for their latest single “Pretty Lies.” The track and video features Matty Mullins from Memphis May Fire and showcases a different side of the vocalist who is better known for his role in the metalcore outfit. The song is the title track from VERIDIA’s 2015 EP that debuted in the Top 20 of the iTunes Alternative Albums chart and spent 26 weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard charts with 6 weeks at #1. The imagery of the video aims to dismantle the distorted perception people have of themselves based on what they see on social media and vocalist Deena Jakoub hopes it will help others gain a sense of self-worth.

I was inspired to write ‘Pretty Lies’ because I was basically overwhelmed with the fact that I compared myself to other people,” says Jakoub. “The underlying message behind the video is that we waste too much time comparing ourselves to other people and images of people that aren’t real. I wanted Matty’s voice on it to represent the other side that we don’t normally think about, that guys go through this too.” Watch the full explanation of the video’s concept here.

About Dawn of Ashes

DAWN OF ASHES: The very name calls to mind the legend of the Phoenix, a god-being born anew from the ashes of its own destruction. It unites the Alpha and Omega, signifying that every end is a beginning and vice versa, that life and death are one. So goes the destiny of this musical form: to die unto its first self, passing through the agonizing fire of purification, only to rise again to a new dawn, with renewed purpose.

Buy CYBERPUNKERS Feel The Disco On Beatport
The “Cyberpunkers” project is the child, born in 2006, of the passion for Cyberpunk culture of two young Italian DJ’s. The format aims at giving a fresh start to this style. In a nutshell, a transposition of the Cyberpunk world in modern clubbing. Through several performances at famous clubs, “Cyberpunkers” drew lots of interest and ended up being much taked about for both their original look, made of masks behind which their true identity is hidden, and for the originality of their shows, which are marked out by the use of two consoles at once and powered by several audio machines. Cyberpunkers shared the stage of the biggest electronic European festivals with such worldwide stars. Such a tight schedule did not prevent them from doing a lot of important singles and remixes.

The Anthem Premiere New Music Video for “Like You’re James Dean”

The_Anthem_one

Pop-punk quartet The Anthem has released a new music video for the single “Like You’re James Dean”. The Pulp Fiction-esque video was shot in Rome by the Audax Cor Agency.

The song is about those people who only care about appearance and act like they are better than the rest, but who have nothing special to offer,” bassist/vocalist Paolo Notarsanti said in an interview. “The video was very fun to shoot, my favourite part is when we grab the guns and shoot the poor guy (those were real shotguns, it’s was a very dangerous moment and we didn’t use stuntmen!).

“Like You’re James Dean” is taken from the band’s sophomore album In It To Win It, released last June and available on iTunes.

About The Anthem:
The Anthem is a four piece rock/pop-punk band. Hailing from Rome, Italy,
the band emerged as one of the most interesting bands, with tracks
characterized by unforgettable melodies, explosive guitar hooks and
relentlessly driving rhythms.

After more than 100 shows between Italy, Germany, France, Russia, Ukraine,
supporting bands like All Time Low, You Me At Six, Young Guns, The Maine
and more, as a promotion of the debut album “High Five” (2012), the band
has released its second full-length album, “In It To Win It”, which brought the
band to tour Japan for its first time ever.
