  cum on feel the newz

19th August 2016



Edition eight of Cum On Feel The Newz. The Resource Recovery and Conservation Act (RCRA) lists and monitors a group of eight heavy metals which are commonly referred to as the RCRA 8. Each of these eight metals is extremely toxic at even small concentrations and the amount of each metal present in waste is highly regulated. Unlike MetalTalk, which is not regulated at all...

Let's do this...

The Lounge Kittens have released another video and this time it's Alice Cooper classic 'Poison', the opening track from debut album 'Sequins & C-Bombs'.

"This was the first song we ever arranged as a group", Jen (the Red one) tells us. "It was always going to be the first track on the album because it's such an important part of the TLK story. It's become a firm favourite with fans and a stalwart of our live shows so it feels great to have been able to give it its proper attention in the recording studio."

"And Alice Cooper seems to think it's alright too", Timia (the Blue one) chimes in. "We got to meet Alice at Stone Free Festival and he is every bit the charming legend you expect him to be. And we managed not to pass out or puke up whilst talking to him so I'm guessing he feels the same way about us haha. It's a massive honour to have the original artist hear our take on their songs and we're still feeling a little overwhelmed by this one."




"Have you ever been in a relationship with someone and there comes a time and a place, where you have to give up on it... for them? It's about giving up to give in", said Shayley about Dayshell's new song 'Improvise'. Dayshell will release their second album 'Nexus' on October 7th via Spinefarm.




those damn crows

Those Damn Crows are to release their new single 'Blink Of An Eye' on August 29th. It's taken from their highly anticipated debut album '‘Murder And The Motive' which is due out on September 26th. A video for 'Blink Of An Eye' has been filmed and will be released to coincide with the single.


German asphalt stoner rockers Plainride have signed to Ripple Music and release their debut album, 'Return Of The Jackalope' on 2xLP, CD, and worldwide digital in December. Originally self-released by the band, 'Return Of The Jackalope' has been described as the perfect soundtrack for your roadtrip through the deserts of Hades, hitting 666 mph in a beer-fuelled Dodge Challenger 69 and embarking on a brain melting hell-ride through space and time accompanied by four German rockers and a horned jackrabbit. Sounds like a typical day in our office.




ginger wildheart

Ginger Wildhearts band Hey! Hello! are to release their first full-length studio album as a band, 'Hey! Hello! Too!', on September 23rd. Ginger told us: "Music is the sound of feelings and we are all the creators of our own feelings - positive or negative. Hey! Hello! choose to be positive, therefore our music reflects that intention. This is the sound of joy."

Styx are to release 'Live At The Orleans Arena, Las Vegas' which sees the band rock their way through a string of hit songs and classic album tracks drawn from across their hugely successful career. With numerous platinum and multi-platinum albums to their name Styx are one of the biggest live draws in rock music and have an enviable reputation as supreme concert performers.

It's filmed in high definition, and features guest appearance by Don Felder (The Eagles) on 'Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)' and includes 'Lady', 'Too Much Time On My Hands', 'Rockin’ The Paradise', 'Come Sail Away', 'Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)', 'Renegade', 'Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)', 'Suite Madame Blue' and many more.


Welcome Back Delta's new album 'Sucker' is out now and it's packed with catchy riffs and blues beats and an energy, sound and drive which has really made people take note. WBD have supported artists such as Clutch, Nick Oliveri, Karma To Burn, Lionize, and Desertstorm to name a few. Here's 'Jeremy's Iron' from 'Sucker'.

Hammerfall have unveiled the title, artwork and tracklist for their upcoming album. The title is 'Built To Last' and it will be released on November 4th 2016 on Napalm Records. The stunning artwork was designed by Andreas Marschall.

Guitarist Oscar Dronjak comments: "'Built To Last' is our tenth studio album in 19 years, incredibly enough, but I think we sound more alive and vibrant than ever before. We have worked our asses off to make sure this album is a worthy successor to '(r)Evolution', and I have no doubt in my mind that we have created one of the strongest records we have ever done. I am immensely proud and excited about this album, and I am confident all our Templars of Steel will agree once they hear it in November."


Toseland just released their new video 'We'll Stop At Nothing' which is taken from the new album 'Cradle The Rage'. The band are setting out on a 14 date tour running through September and October of this year and full details can be found here.




the sword

Following nine months of touring in support of the critically acclaimed album 'High Country', The Sword returned to the studio to experiment with a stripped down acoustic presentation of the 'High Country' songs. The result, produced by bassist Bryan Richie and mixed by J Robbins, is 'Low Country' which will see a worldwide release on September 23rd.

To support 'Low Country' the band will be heading out as direct support on the Opeth tour September 29th to October 26th. Bracketing the Opeth tour will be ten headline shows.


The Agonist will release their new album and Napalm Records debut 'Five' on September 30th. The band have dropped the first official video from 'Five' for the song 'The Moment'. Watch it below.

Frontlady Vicky Psarakis spoke about the making of the video: "'The Moment' was probably the most exciting and demanding video I've had to shoot so far. Chris came up to me with the idea to create a storyline with a close up of just my face singing the lyrics underwater. And we achieved it by building a box with a plexiglas panel that fit my head, while the rest of my body was standing and perfectly dry.

"I guess you could say it was scary and awkward to have just your head submerged underwater and a bit dangerous to have to perform the entire song in that position, but honestly, I wouldn't mind doing the whole thing all over again."




Motion Device have a new video and it's pretty damn kickass! 'Doves And Snakes' is from the bands first full-length release 'Eternalize' which is available on iTunes now.




Billingham, Teesside-based duo Mouses have revealed another brand new track in the form of a mighty slab of fuzz going by the name of 'Green'. The track is latest to be taken from their debut full length LP 'The Mouses Album' on 23rd September 2016 via Sister 9 Recordings/Cargo.

The band are also playing at this year's Reading & Leeds Festival on the BBC Introducing stage after being hand-picked by BBC Radio One DJ and Introducing champion Huw Stephens, who's been waxing lyrical about the band over the past few weeks.




The Apocalypse Blues Revue, the new band from Godsmack's Shannon Larkin and Tony Rombola, have announced a new self-titled album to be released on Provogue/Mascot Label Group on 26th August 2016. You can watch the video for a 'Devil Plays A Strat' here:



You can also watch the album trailer right here:



"As far as blues goes, Apocalypse Blues Revue is a little heavier, a little darker, and has some punk rock attitude in the lyrics," affirms Shannon. "We wanted to make something deep that will provoke thought. It had to be evil though. We’re not trying to make it happy. It’s called blues for a reason! It was also an opportunity to show the world what a phenomenal guitar player Tony is."


Truckfighters have launched a video for their new song 'Calm Before The Storm' which is taken from the upcoming album 'V' which is out on Century Media on 30th September. You can watch the video here:



Shortly after the album release, the Truckfighters will hit the road again to play an extensive European tour. Support bands for most of the mainland European dates will be We Hunt Buffalo and Witchrider and for the UK dates it will be Deville and Dot Legacy.


The documentary series, Fractured, which focuses on the extreme side of Irish Underground music, has relaunched today for the the second half of the season. Episode 8 focuses on grind/crust/hardcore legends Okus, who have had members involved in hardcore and Metal scenes in both Northern and Southern Ireland over the last two decades. Previous episodes have covered bands such as Abaddon Incarnate, Ilenkus, From the Bogs of Aughiska and Slidhr.

The series aims to show the efforts and motives for the musicians working in the outer limits of music genres, and what drives them to make such music when the audience is so limited in Ireland. John Mulvaney is a filmmaker based in Dublin.




With their debut album 'Impulse' set for release on 30th September via Pledge/PHD, Idlewar has now been confirmed as guests to Stone Broken on their UK tour this coming November and December. Here's the new lyric video for 'Criminal'.

Vocalist James Blake told us: "This is not just about being able to play music that we've written for appreciative fans. It's also about meeting these amazing people that we have connected with. We see a passion in fans that matches the passion we put into this music."




Buffalo Summer released their second album, 'Second Sun', through UDR Records on May 20th 2016 and now the band have released a new video for the track 'Neverend'. Here it is...




Cover Your Tracks have premiered a new song, 'Cages', from their debut album 'Fever Dream' which comes out on September 9th. This is the second single from 'Fever Dream' and fans will receive instant downloads of 'Cages' and 'Bellow' when pre-ordering the album at iTunes.

Guitarist Magana told us: "This album is exactly what we wanted it to be, with no restrictions, so to get this far and then have Epitaph on board means the world to us. We've been working at this for quite some while, so to finally break through and have some success is amazing. We hope people will appreciate this record as much as we enjoyed writing it."




blackrain

BlackRain will play two UK headline shows later in August in support of their brand new album 'Released', out earlier this year. Catch them on Sunday 28th August at Nottingham's Salutation Inn and on Monday 29th August at London's Our Black Heart in Camden.
