RIG TIME! Releases Official Music Video for “No Faith”

NO FAITH SINGLE ARTWORK

Wisconsin based Hardcore Metal Band RIG TIME! has released the official music video for their new single, “NO FAITH.”

Player

“’NO FAITH’ is a bleak declaration about giving up and a satirical response encouraging one to forgo their community. The lyrics declare “You’ll never miss what you never loved” to invoke inner dialogue, asking oneself if they truly love the setting they are a part of .“No faith in the future, No reason to survive” is a blunt submission to ponder if what the effort you offer is worth. The song is in the eye of the beholder, to offer two paths and let the individual decide what matters to them.” – RIG TIME!

RIG TIME! is an angry, caustic and vehemently heavy force based in La Crosse, WI. The band has performed 300+ shows, in 39 states and counting, since 2015. Holding true to the idea of “All Ages Or Nothing” the band has relentlessly toured across the US performing at only all ages events and resonating their substantial live sound while stressing the message that live music is for all. Deeply rooted in the DIY attitude, RIG TIME! is a determined and passionate ensemble with strong work ethic and a vital purpose.

Their recent full length album War was released on October 20, 2017 via Innerstrength Records, following the self released full-length Sick of It (2016) and two EP’s (2014’s Awful and 2015’s Devout). Featuring a sound that is the audio equivalent of a tank column entering a besieged city, the crunch and clangor of War is a game-changer. Forged in the fires of hardcore, sludge, and powerviolence, War epitomizes RIG TIME!‘s scorched-earth tactics and demonstrates the natural chemistry of the band.

Vocalist/Drummer, Bryan W. Fleming provides intensity and indignant passion to a wave of sullen and unrelenting baritone guitar riffs, forcefully delivered by Rebecca Fleming with massive low end impact and ferocity.

STRONG LIKE BULL Release Official Music Video for “Live While You Can”

SLB LWYC cover art

Kansas plains rock band STRONG LIKE BULL has released the official music video for their debut single, “Live While You Can.” Originally premiered on PureGrainAudio, “Live While You Can” was directed by Daran Herrman of Colored Lion Productions and is available to download / stream vie TLG / INgrooves. The track was produced by Carter Green at GreenJeans Studios.

“‘Live While You Can’ is a song about not letting anyone keep you from living your life like you want to…including yourself. We give ourselves more reasons that we shouldn’t do something we want to than anyone else does. We’re supposed to know what we want to do with our lives, have a career by 22, and anything else we think society has told us we need to do to be normal. Just be yourself. Live your own life. Don’t let someone else’s fears or your own fears hold you back. ‘You build your own cage. You carve your own jail…. You get one time around, you’ve got to understand, you build your own prison…gotta live while you can.’” – DAVE GRAY

Player

“this is straight and pure old school rock n’ roll at its best, from a group that comes from the rural environments of motorcycle rallies, rod runs, and all-night keggers. The roots of Strong Like Bull’s sound extends back to the early 1970s when rock was something your parents hated and, if you’re old enough, you would have been defying their every instruction and pumping your fist in your air, either in your room or out at a gig.” – Christopher Gonda – PureGrainAudio

STRONG LIKE BULL is a straight up Pure Rock N’ Roll band with rural roots in the land of motorcycle rallies, rod runs, and all night keg parties. Influenced by rock from the 70s to now, Strong Like Bull is delivering
foot-stomping, fist-pumping, high energy rock n roll and earning new fans at every show the band plays.

Strong Like Bull sounds like the first cold one you crack open to start the weekend… like your Harley when you fire it up to hit the road… like the smell of high performance octane and the roar of an engine at a drag race… yeah, that’s what rock n roll is all about!

That’s #RuralRock.

That’s Strong Like Bull.

PRIMITIVE RACE Reveal Title Single Off of Upcoming Remix Album, ‘Cranial Matter’

65258270 2449549555105589 8100276644872192000 n

Collaborative Alternative Rock Band PRIMITIVE RACE has revealed an early taste of their upcoming album, Cranial Matter in the form of a Toshi Kasai (Dale Crover Band) re-imaging of the title track. The remix album Cranial Matter is a follow up to the 2018 album Soul Pretender, and honors late front man Chuck Mosley, who tragically died six days after the album came out.

“Toshi has become a great friend and it was a no brainer asking him to take part on this record. His involvement was a perfect fit following his work on Soul Pretender. He tracked and engineered all Dale’s drums. I already knew he was a hell of a remixer from the work he did with Buzz (Melvins) on a KMFDM EP we worked on together previously. I’m very happy with what he did.” – Chris Kniker

Heavy Rock Band SAY NEVER has released the official music video for their single, “Do it Again (featuring Billy Grey).”

Player

“Do It Again” is a positive, upbeat blue collar tune with a head bobbing tempo about letting loose and having fun with friends after a long hard week at work. All of us can easily relate to this type of song and we all know that feeling of happiness when the weekend rolls around. “Do It Again” soars with its driving bass guitar, heavy drums, guitar tones that are dialed in just right and that feeling that it’s party time so let’s “blow off some steam”. – SAY NEVER

WATCH ME BREATHE Releases Official Music Video for “Feel Alright”

DSC 3781 1

Santa Cruz, CA – Progressive Pop-Rock Band WATCH ME BREATHE has released the official music video for their new single, “Feel Alright,” via TLG / INgrooves.

Player

“This was one of those tracks where I knew it was special right away. I was jumping and dancing around the studio like a lunatic because I could just clearly feel that we’d struck something new and exciting. The vibe of the song is somewhat unlike anything we’ve made before; there’s something about the wildness and the darkness of the whole thing that I’m extremely excited about and proud of.” – Jake Ward

From the very beginning, Watch Me Breathe has been all about honesty and authenticity. Lead singer Jake Aaron Ward formed the band in 2017 purely out of frustration. “As a solo artist, I just got fed up with trying to write music only to please other people. Watch Me Breathe is really an experiment that says: what would I write if nobody else was listening?”
The results of that experiment have been surprising. In the short time since the release of their debut LP The Lighter Side of Darkness in February 2018, Watch Me Breathe has already accrued well over 150K views on YouTube and over 50K streams on Spotify…and the numbers keep growing.

When it comes to making albums, this particular band has an unusual process not unlike that of Tame Impala or Bon Iver: Ward (a proficient multi-instrumentalist) writes, performs, records, mixes, and masters every song entirely by himself, in his own California home studio. He jokingly explains “I just kind of suck at collaborating.” He cites an eclectic range of influences, including Peter GabrielThe PoliceImogen HeapGoo Goo Dolls, and a whole slew of underground progressive metal bands that have helped shape his unique guitar parts and complex rhythmic patterns. In concert, the band performs as a power trio, with Ward covering guitar and lead vocals, while bassist Ryan Green and drummer/baby brother Carl Ward handle the rhythm section.
