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.

Thursday 15th January, 2015

LIFE FORCE records are very excited to announce signing UK metallers LAY SIEGE, who will release their debut album hopeisnowhere in spring 2015.

Hailing from the heart of England, Lay Siege fuse the sounds of metalcore, post-metal and sludge to create their own brand of suffocatingly heavy music riddled with heart and depth. The album follows on from the band's 2012 six track EP Obulus which gained supported from the likes of Kerrang! Radio, Scuzz TV and Rock Sound magazine.Having stepped it up another notch, hopeisnowhere is a heart bruising journey exemplified by merciless throat-shredding vocals erupting over riff-orientated raging guitars. This is modern metal with no compromises, just presence.

To kick things off the band will release debut single Hollow Hands on 9th February

Vocalist Carl Brown comments:

"We are beyond excited to have signed to Lifeforce Records and to be joining so many great bands past and present on the label. This album has been a long time coming so to finally have it released and through a label like Lifeforce is amazing for us. We're all extremely proud of the songs and also of the sound of the album and we can't wait to share it with everyone.”.

Stefan Luedicke of Lifeforce records continues:

“I’m really looking forward to work with one of UK’s most exciting new bands and I’m sure folks out there will love Lay Siege’s new album as much as I do.”

TRACK AND FIELD release digital EP 'You Are My Home' and reveal video for 'World'

Thursday 15th January, 2015

Yorkshire indie emo outfit TRACK AND FIELD are birthing their musical adventure with the release of their debut EP You Are My Home.

To celebrate the EP’s digital release, the quintet have also revealed the video for lead single World which was directed and produced by Giles Smith who has worked on previous projects with You Me At Six and Royal Blood.

In recent times, the amplified buzz around the indie emo scene has welcomed the emergence of some incredible talent, and Track and Field are no exception. Their four-track debut blends mesmerising rhythms, elegantly crafted melodies, hazy vocals and bouncy drum-lines to deliver captivating material that puts them way ahead of their years.

The five guys that make up Track and Field all boast musical pasts, but ones that couldn’t distance them further from the genre that has brought them together. The band is, in fact, the marriage of current and ex-members of extreme grind violence outfit The Afternoon Gentlemen and punk rockers The Plight; the latter signed to Visible Noise and completed UK and European tours with household names including Converge, Gallows and Cancer Bats before their disbandment in 2011. Now venturing into a brand new realm, the quintet are moving in an exciting direction which enables them to deliver personal and expressive music outside of their comfort zone.

Track and Field are playing two hometown shows next month, with plans to tour further afield in the near future. Current dates are as follows:

Sat 7th Feb – Temple of Boom, Leeds
Sat 21st Feb – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds

You Are My Home is available now on all major digital retailers including iTunes and Amazon, as well as to stream on Spotify. Track and Field plan to release the record on vinyl in Spring, details of which will be revealed in the near future.

Purchase the record here.

You Are My Home tracklisting:

1. Ghost Sleep
2. Up Side
3. Swift
4. World

Track and Field are:
Mick Grogan – vocals
Richard Storrow – rhythm guitar
Jonathan Kirk – lead guitar
Daniel Comlay – bass
John Defenzi – drums
