Wednesday 28th January, 2015

JAY WUD, one of the Middle East's premiere rock acts, is proud to present his new single Low, his first release of 2015. Produced by Grammy-nominated Howard Benson (Sepultura, My Chemical Romance, Halestorm), Low represents a new stage in the evolution of Jay Wud's sound ahead of his upcoming EP due in summer.

Purchase the single here.

Fusing hard rock with grunge and heavy metal to create a recognisably distinctive sound, Jay Wud is already a staple of the Middle Eastern rock circuit, having played alongside the likes of Skunk Anansie, Aerosmith, and Robert Plant with two independently released albums under his belt. Combining musicians from Lebanon, Serbia, and Latvia, Jay Wud is true testimony to music's collective power and is on a mission to showcase the Middle East's musical potential to the world.

OCEANS ATE ALASKA unveil new video and single

Tuesday 27th January, 2015

Fast-rising progressive metalcore outfit OCEANS ATE ALASKA are eager to present to you the release of their brand new video Vultures and Sharks, ahead of the band's debut LP Lost Isles, set for release on February 23rd via Fearless Records.

Check out the video via the band's website and purchase the single here

The video release comes just as Oceans Ate Alaska are preparing to undertake a huge European tour with Chelsea Grin and Veil of Maya in February.

In the band's own words:

"We had a ton of fun back in December shooting our video for Vultures and Sharks. We were soaking wet and freezing cold for the majority of it, which sure took it's toll both mentally and physically. This was also a real eye opener and vastly different to any of the DIY video shoots we’d done prior. Artistically we wanted the video to coincide with the track lyrically, hence the rain, wind and storms... hopefully the finished product enriches those emotions contained within this song."

Pre-order Lost Isles in both physical and digital formats.

BASICK RECORDS sign Irish noise-punks MURDOCK, announce album details and release new track

Friday 23rd January, 2015

Basick Records is very excited to announce signing noise-punk-metallers MURDOCK and will release their debut album Dead Lung on the 13th April.

The Dublin, Ireland 3-piece have released a stream of brand new track Deer Noises, the first track to be taken from Dead Lung. Check it out here:

Destroying all preconceived genre rules and smashing them into the ground, Murdock interblend ferocious metal, rock and roll, noise, jazz and punk with off-kilter, intense jarring time signatures and deliver it with an honest, sincere and inexhaustible passion.

Having gained an outstanding reputation for their intense, reckless and destructive live show, Murdock play past the limit of their abilities with a disregard for their own well-being and the comfort levels of their audiences, whilst never compromising their inherent precision. However their level of energy and conviction is unsurprising given that they honed their skills sharing staged with the likes of Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sick Of It All, Rolo Tomassi and many more.

Murdock will be touring relentlessly throughout 2015 to support Dead Lung, kicking off with the following dates:

Jan-29 The MacBeth London
Jan-31 Nottingham Rock City Nottingham
Feb-01 Voodoo Lounge w/ Sick Of It All Dublin
Feb-02 The Limelight w/ Sick Of It All Belfast
Feb-07 Fred Zepplins Cork

ACODA reveal new album 'Truth Seeker' and new single 'Whispers Like Roars' ahead of UK tour dates

Thursday 22nd January, 2015

Alt-metal/rock quartet ACODA are making a comeback worth shouting about, returning with their brand new album Truth Seeker and a fresh line-up that presents them at their finest.

The 11-track record, which is set for release on the 30th March via Best Before Records, is beaming with giant hooks and bold choruses that showcase the growth and strength of a band who have been toughened by a cut-throat industry.

Having faced trials and tribulations in the past ACODA have taken matters into their own hands by recording and producing Truth Seeker themselves, with the guiding hand of Russ Russell at both Parlour Studios and Red Shed; this is the quartet in their truest form.

To celebrate the band have revealed Whispers Like Roars, the first single to be taken from the record to offer fans a taste of their biggest sound yet.

ACODA will also be touring across the UK from next week, so if you want to hear the new material first head down to one of the following dates:

28th Jan - Swansea, Static Bar
29th Jan - Portsmouth, Fat Fox
30th Jan - Sheffield, Corporation
31st Jan - Aberdeen, Downstairs
1st Feb - Glasgow, 13th Note
2nd Feb - Kilmarnock, Fanny by Gaslight
4th Feb - Leicester, Pi Bar
5th Feb - Southampton, Avondale
6th Feb - Crawley, Black Dog
7th Feb - London, Upstairs @ The Garage

They may already have a successful career on their shoulders having appeared on past line-ups at Download Festival, Sonisphere, T In The Park and Hevy Fest, as well as touring with Hawthorne Heights and sharing stages with Funeral For A Friend, Marmozets, Arcane Roots and Devil Sold His Soul - but for ACODA, this is just the beginning.
