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.

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.

UNVEIL THE STRENGTH Release Official Music Video for “Hell’s Never Over”!

Unveil-The-Strength-2019-by-Fred-Morledge-PhotoFM-IMG 7709

UNVEIL THE STRENGTH—-featuring Mark WölfeAndy JamesMatt SnellMatt Guillory, and Tim Hassemer (former members of Five Finger Death PunchSacred Mother TongueInvidiaFlatlineDevolved, and Stratovarius)–has released the official music video for their single “Hell’s Never Over.” Originally premiered on Heart Support, “Hell’s Never Over” was directed by Matt Zane (Society 1).

“We believe in Heart Support because they are doing something no one else has done. They are bridging the gap for mental health in a relateable way that people and music fans can connect with. On one end you have the music fans that are maybe going through something and feel Isolated , trapped, and lonely. On the other end you have people making music about the very same feelings. The truth is, everyone goes through a dark place, but we have to remember its just temporary, just a moment. Heart Support is never above, never below, and always beside you.” – UNVEIL THE STRENGTH

Unveil the Strength, a quintet composed of former members of iconic bands such as Five Finger Death PunchSacred Mother TongueInvidiaFlatlineDevolved, and Stratovarius are returning to the soul of hard rock: writing and performing real songs with real meaning. Says Matt Snell, bassist for Unveil the Strength, “We want to put the grown man back in metal – that spirit is being lost in the shuffle. We’re going back to the roots, to real fucking metal.”

Despite the band’s old-school approach to writing, they’re taking a contemporary approach to marketing their music. For their upcoming album, Unveil the Strength will not do a traditional record release. Snell reveals, “The landscape has changed so much regarding how to successfully get music to the public, so we’re going a different route. Right now, we’re halfway through the album and we have video concepts for every song. Instead of releasing all 10 songs at once that will just be put up on the internet to be stolen, our idea is to constantly release new songs all the time. We want to unveil this record to the public, with a video to go along with each song.”

Although the band is officially based out of Austin, TX, Unveil the Strength is truly an international band with members in London, Nevada, California, Colorado, and Texas. All of the band members have professional studios where they can record their own instrument’s tracks, so the group easily collaborates by file sharing.

Their first recording, titled “Foundations,” was recorded in Austin, TX. They wanted an edgier sound than what is currently being produced in the States, so they have been working with Rob Kukla of Studio Fredman and Henrik Uddof Henrick Udd Recording in Gothenburg, Sweden. Udd is known for his impeccable production with acts such as ArchitectsBring Me The HorizonAt The Gates, and Delain. The upcoming album slated for a 2019 release, is still in the recording process, but Snell admits, “The production is amazing on the new album. It accentuates that we’re an active rock band – but we’re a little bit heavier, a little bit edgier. It illustrates that we can write, and that we have an ear for metal.” Snell is especially proud of Mark’s lyrics, which he describes as “real.” Snell goes on to praise Mark’s extraordinary writing ability, saying, “Mark has had an amazing life. He is a Marine; a veteran. He’s lived on the streets, ya know? He’s seen and done a lot. He writes from his core being and writes real songs that relate to the band’s message.”

Exclusive BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING Performance Featured In New Horror Film, CLOWN MOTEL

IMG 0635

 BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING producer and bassist for legacy fetish/industrial act Lords Of Acid DieTrich Thrall has taken his horror approach in his bands music videos to the next step, co-producing a key scene in the newly released Clown Motel: Spirits Arise.

Released on June 4, 2019 in the United States and set for a drop date of July 29, 2019 in the UK, “Clown Motel: Spirit’s Arise” features Ari Lehman (the original Jason Voorhees from 1980 Friday the 13th), Tony Moran (the original Michael Myers from the 1978 Halloween), Martin Klebba (Pirates of the Caribbean), and Chalet Brannan (Cyborg X, Crepitus).

Player

Clown Motel follows a group of ghost hunters, coming from an old ghost town and a bachelorette party, returning home from Las Vegas. When the groups meet up, by mistake, they’re left to discover if the motel is really abandoned and haunted by the souls, of the clowns, that once lived there.

An exclusive performance by Beauty In The Suffering of the song “REVEILLE'”which features producer DieTrich Thrall and drummer Galen Wailing, both of the legacy industrial/fetish act Lords Of Acid, takes place during a key scene.

Writer and director Joseph Kelly weighed in on the collaboration, “DieTrich and his band brought our Las Vegas party scene from Clown Motel to life with a blistering rendition of their song ‘REVEILLE!’ Awesome energy!”

Executive Producer and Film Editor David W Bailey also chimed in, “DieTrich brought fire to the set of Clown Motel with his scorching song ‘Reveille’ that left the cast and crew speechless!”

Executive producer and co-star Don Schell, who plays the part of Chris in the film commented, “Beauty In The Suffering have already amassed a solid fan base with their initial zombie/horror themed music videos produced by mastermind DieTrich Thrall so it only made sense to have him bring his twisted talents to ‘Clown Motel!’”

Guest drummer Galen Wailing: “Having previously worked with Dietrich Thrall in Lords of Acid, I got the pleasure of working with him on his solo project Beauty in the Suffering. Always professional and a great guy to work with!”

Artist & producer DieTrich (pronounced “Dee – Trick”) Thrall is known for his extensive international touring with industrial legacy band LORDS OF ACID and MISFITS guitar legend DOYLE WOLFGANG VON FRANKENSTEIN’s solo project DOYLE. He was also a primary creative contributor to underground Marazene, who scored a hit – and the approval of rock legends NIKKI SIXX and TOMMY LEE – with their extreme cover of Motley Crüe’s “Live Wire.”

“For their first outing as a new band, Thrall and team decided to adopt a horror motif, beginning with the track ‘The Crazies (The Zombie Song),’ which is no doubt influenced by the horror classics of George A. Romero – not just the film of the same name, but his beloved Dead saga as well.
‘The Crazies’ is the first of three zombie-themed songs to be incorporated into a long-form music video conceived by Thrall (which is currently in production), and you’ll be hearing more about [the] project soon.” – Gregory Burkart (FEARnet.com)

“Beauty In The Suffering is an evolving concept I came up with years ago that best described a sense of optimism during some bright spots of an otherwise massive struggle against overwhelming odds.

Music I have been writing and expressing over the last several years has been uniquely intimate in reflecting those struggles and I am very excited about putting out some fresh ideas that represent the here and now.

Beauty In The Suffering deals with universal themes of love and loss, defeat and resolve, and struggle and triumph.

Everybody has moments where the road looks impossible to pass. But somehow, little by little we manage through our own inner strength and the purposeful placement of fate, chance, and karma. We emerge wiser and with a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our place in the world and – The Beauty We Glean From The Suffering We Have Endured Can NEVER Be Denied..

This is a journey I accepted long ago. I wear the scars of my personal triumph over my struggles with pride and I stand ready to face new challenges.

And, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, this is a new beginning. I thank you all for standing by my side during some very difficult years of active-inactivity. The future is wide open and full of nothing but payoff.” ~DieTrich Thrall 11.18.12

“[Beauty In The Suffering’s debut zombie themed music video ‘The Crazies’ is] ..A visual mini-epic.. Chilling!” – Gregory Burkart (FEARnet.com)

“Beauty in the Suffering’s debut song ‘The Crazies (The Zombie Song)’ is a thunderous assault amidst apocalyptic party lyrics!” – COMA Music Magazine

“[Beauty In The Suffering is a] charging electro soaked metal project that evokes the likes of Deathstars and Motionless In White with its thick and filthy tone.” – Necromag.co.uk

“Brilliant!” – Melissa Themeli (Our City Radio – Minneapolis)
