YOUNG OTHER Releases Official Music Video for “Between The Few”

Single Art Young Other BetweenTheFew

Hard Alternative Rock Band YOUNG OTHER has released the official music video for the title track off of their upcoming, debut EP, Between The Few.

Player

“When we wrote ‘Between The Few,’ the four of us were enduring the hardest chapter of our lives. Being without anyone to turn to, we turned to what our hearts call to. ‘Between The Few’ resembles the fight between things that are good and bad, the light and dark, happiness and depression, it is the title track and centerfold off our upcoming EP. For us, the song highlights how torn we are pursuing a career in music when weʼre consistently being delivered societal expectations from the ones we love by not following the “correct” ways and living the “normal life”. Regardless of what we have been handed, our hearts and passion for music cannot be silenced, it is our voice and who we are.” – YOUNG OTHER

Surrounded by darkness, fabricated by societal expectations and the desire for their dreams leaving them torn between life choices, the members of Young Other have strayed from the path of the “normal life” to follow the light that is fueled by their passion towards the end of a seemingly endless tunnel. This journey is expressed in the bandʼs debut release, “Between The Few”. The EP reflects the concepts of good and bad, light and dark, happiness and depression. The lyrics portray instances derived directly from personal experiences of each member, providing a general concept with diverse emotional standpoints. Explosive drums, fused with groove and melody delivered from the guitar and bass, sit underneath a tasteful, yet dominating vocal, creating a sound which narrates the story behind Young Other.

Young Other was originally formed by members Dale Belliveau Jr. (Vocals) and Brandon Hursey (Guitar). Having written songs and releasing “DIY” demoes, the band tested the waters playing shows around New England. After a short hiatus, Young Other was revitalized with the introduction of members Devin Stetson (Bass/Backup Vocals) and Kyle Shays (Drums). With the lineup fully completed, the band quickly made its way to No Boundaries Studios in late 2018, to begin recording their debut professional release with Chris Piquette. The product of this endeavor would become the EP, “Between The Few”. As they beg%n the spreading word of their upcoming release, the band began to play out in February 2019, with their first show back being sold out alongside Saving Abel and Tantric. This set the pace, as Young Other began to travel and play from as north as the Canadian border to as south as North Carolina, they started to spread awareness for their upcoming release. The EP is set to release on all Streaming and Music Platforms on August 16th, 2019, with the title track dropping July 12th, 2019.

COYOTE KID Channel QUENTIN TARANTINO in Modern Film Noire, Official Music Video for “Femme Fatale”!

IMG 5993e2 1

Minnesota based, cinematic rock band COYOTE KID has released the darkly film noir music video for their new single, “Femme Fatale,” the first single off of their upcoming album, The Skeleton Man. Originally premiered on mxdwn.com, “Femme Fatale” was directed by Christopher Behnen and Dena Winter.

“We’re thrilled to present ‘Femme Fatale. A Tarantino inspired short film shot entirely on real 16mm film, telling the story of a dangerous woman and her vampiric car.” – COYOTE KID

player

“The clip begins ominously, with headlights illuminating a remote wildland, crickets humming and a appropriately, a coyote cackling in the distance. We’re introduced to the central character of the video, our “Femme Fatale.” She enters the shot walking back to the car that has its headlights on, carrying a gasoline container. We soon find out what the purpose of the canister is — and it’s not because she ran out of gas on a lonely highway and had to walk to the nearest service station to fill up the container.

Then, the music finally enters the mix and it’s heart-pounding rock ‘n roll, with lead singer Austin Durry’s vocals cutting powerfully through the mix. Throughout the song, accompaniment like Baumgartner’s trombone add to the swinging The video focuses on the engine of our anti-hero’s VW bug, which pounds and pulsates as she drives, leaking a mysterious red substance. In the next scene, she picks up a man who appears to be assaulting someone, seemingly easy pickings for the “Femme Fatale.”

But first she makes a kill with the unsuspecting man sleeping in the back of the car. As a jogger runs by she bludgeons him to death with a wrench, with her new friend helping out with the assault. At this point, it becomes clear that the woman is killing to feed her car’s insatiable thirst for blood..” – MATT MATASCI– mxdwn.com

CK COVER PHOTO kickstarter

The band has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund The Skeleton Man, a full-length, cinematic alt-rock concept album, telling the post-apocalyptic, western tale of The Coyote Kid.

“This new story album is titled The Skeleton Man. The sound is large and aggressive, but more stylistically diverse then any of our previous releases. We wanted to take the cinematic sound we established in our previous albums and expand it to encompass more musical influences and a larger emotional range. From dynamic drums, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti-western guitars, to soaring trumpets and bellowing trombones, the stage is set for this supernatural, post-apocalyptic western. This is, by far, the most dynamic work we have ever compiled. Each record will be pressed on beautiful marble vinyl, and will include the full album story and lyrics, a poster insert, and a pair of red and blue lenses that reveal both sides of The Skeleton Man cover art.”

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Coyote Kid’s sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry’s true grit voice alongside Cassandra’s crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrusted foreword by shimmering spaghetti-western guitars, growling base, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between. Previously known as Marah in the Mainsail, Coyote Kid has been earning their stripes and touring the US and Canada since 2015, slowly carving their unique place between genres in the music industry.

THE SPIDER HOLE Releases Official Music Video for “The Leviathan Stomp”

TheSpiderHole square

Phoenix, AZ based Cinematic Alternative Rock band THE SPIDER HOLE has released the official music video for “The Leviathan Stomp,” the first video off of their hotly anticipated new LP with graphic novel, To the Monsters. Directed by Johnny Wilkerson and front-man Ethan Scott, “The Leviathan Stomp” was exclusively premiered on Dread Central.

Player

“The song ‘The Leviathan Stomp’ is about a wealthy, uptight family who keeps its monstrously deformed son chained up in the basement of their opulent mansion. Naturally, one day the son breaks loose. The “stomp” is him coming up the stairs. We didn’t have access to a mansion or a monster or a rich person, so for the video we just kind of cherry picked the themes of chaos, disease, and duality, and threw it all in a blender. Also, stairs. We found some stairs.” – The Spider Hole

A quartet with frequent guest musicians, The Spider Hole performs songs meant to stir brains and rattle bones. Based in sun-scorched Phoenix, AZ, the band started banging sounds together in the late nineties, and has steadily developed an aural stew that is partly rock, partly cabaret, partly blues, and partly goth. Influences include Tom Waits, Oingo Boingo, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Primus, The Pixies, Frank Zappa, The Doors, and your face when you taste something unexpected. New music is being prepped for a new full-length album called To the Monsters, due near the end of 2019.

A band is not created solely from a group of people deciding to get into a room and write music together, it’s not that simple. Once you’ve found that ‘sound’, it becomes impossible to ignore that you’re now bound to these songs you find yourself pouring every last drop of blood, sweat, and tears into. You will, quite literally, fight for them. It is with those individuals that make up a truly unique and inspiring band. Carpathia and its members have a history, and it all started with Bobby Drinkwater. As an East Boston, Massachusetts native, Bobby has been consistently involved in music, and in 2016 started a nameless band with long term goals. Bobby keeps the conversations short, but has so much to say behind his instruments. Bobby plays multiple instruments including guitar, violin, piano, and drums. Bobby first found co-member Jason Barsotti to join his new project. Born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts, Jason first picked up his drum sticks at the age of 10, and his long term practice has lead him to a fast paced, hard hitting sound that resonates. Jason’s humble and pleasant personality quickly takes a backseat when he steps behind his drumkit. Bobby had continued his search in bandmates close to home when joining forces with Andrew Miller, the two had met and worked together in a previous project back in 2014. Andrew is from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but has resided in Lynn, Massachusetts since 2013. Throughout Andrew’s life he has been surrounded by family and friends who have been hitting stages in music and comedy. It is no wonder that Andrew’s charismatic humor filled personality would follow in similar footsteps. Andrew has played guitar long term in a number of bands both in North Carolina, and Massachusetts. He had transitioned to playing bass in 2013 for a previous project and found his own unique sound in the process. These three musicians had wrote and played music together between 2016 and 2017 as an instrumental band while trialing a number of potential vocalists. Finally, in January 2017, Samantha Alice of North Kingstown, Rhode Island joined as the last vital part of this project. Samantha brought her strong vocal skills and even stronger personality to the group. Samantha’s history in singing has taken her from talent competitions to all state choir, and beyond. Samantha was first approached by Bobby after meeting at a local show and sparked an interest in trying out for his new project. It took no time at all for the solidification of this band to come to completion and Carpathia was officially named as such on April 22, of 2017.
