Move Home premiere video for “Palaver” from forthcoming Spare Nothing EP

Melodic emo rock quintet Move Home have premiered their video for “Palaver,” a track from their forthcoming Spare Nothing EP via New Noise Magazine. Watch the video via New Noise here:

“The idea of ‘Palaver’ was born out of a desire for meaningful and fulfilling interactions with others. No one should be afraid to be open and honest. I’d much rather discuss views on life with someone than whether or not it will rain today,” says Move Home vocalist T.J. Gaddis. “The video was shot in an aircraft hangar in Delaware, Ohio by Jacob Mooney. Having thrown around a few ideas for different videos, we decided a straight forward performance video would be best since we have a very energetic live show.”

Move Home are set to release the follow-up to their to their 2015 debut album, And So It Begins, via Columbus-based indie label We Want Action on October 7, 2016.  The new EP, like its predecessor, was produced by Micah Carli (formerly of Hawthorne Heights).

“After the first weekend session of recording And So It Begins, we all decided that future recordings would most likely be done with Micah,” says Move Home drummer Gary Adkins. “The atmosphere there was awesome. He’s so down to earth and great to work with. He took the time to get to know our songs beforehand and already had some production ideas ready when we got there. So when we decided to record again, going back to see Micah was pretty much a done deal.”

The sophomore LP also ushers in a new era for Move Home with new vocalist T.J. Gaddis.

“Having TJ really changed the dynamics. When T.J. joined this past winter, we had a few songs written but had been looking for a singer for a few months. He was able to jump in and write lyrics and harmonies that really blew us away. He’s such a talented guy.”

Living Colour releases video for “Who Shot Ya?”

Living Colour have released a video for their new single “Who Shot Ya?” via Rolling Stone. Watch it here. The song—a reinvention of The Notorious B.IG.’s classic track—was recorded and released to protest the ongoing wave of gun violence and racial profiling in the U.S. Over the course of the chilling 4-minute clip, statistics pertaining to gun-related tragedies flash across the screen, photos of people whose lives were ended through gun violence are shown and the names of gun death victims scroll, including Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Jr., Kurt Cobain, Malcolm X, Dimebag Darrell, Martin Luther King, Marvin Gaye and Lee Harvey Oswald.

“Who Shot Ya?” and its subsequent series of remixes, including producer Andre Betts’ with guest verses by Chuck D., Black Thought, Pharoahe Monch, Prodigal Sunn and Kyle Mansa, are part of Living Colour’s Who Shot Ya? mixtape released this past Friday, September 9. Additionally, the collection includes the Living Colour original “Regrets” and a cover of Michael Jackson’s “This Place Hotel,” also known as “Heartbreak Hotel.”

Living Colour continue to tour prolifically around the world, including shows this summer with Jane’s Addiction and Dinosaur Jr. They will be among those performing at Freedom Sounds Festival on September 24 celebrating the grand opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their first new full-length studio album in seven years, entitled Shade, which is planned for an early 2017 release.

Animal Lover shares stream of LP, tours

Animal Lover’s new album Stay Alive (Soundcloud) is an expansive record, void of limitations and free of inhibitions and it’s officially out now on Forward Records.

The Minneapolis based trio are set to celebrate the album’s release across the Midwest and East Coast this Fall, bringing their whirlwind of art-punk fusion, post-hardcore, cryptic jazz, noise rock and experimental indie to a town near you.

Animal Lover has played shows with everyone from Ed Schrader’s Music Beat and Single Mothers to The Blind Shake and Vaz. They’re “a band’s band” and Stay Alive is an incredible statement of unflinching art punk.

Super Unison share video for “You Don’t Tell Me,” tour

Oakland, CA trio Super Unison have premiered a music video for their new song “You Don’t Tell Me” via She Shreds Magazine.  The premiere partnership should come as no surprise; the song opens with the lyrics “Listen here little girl…” and touches on an incident where bassist/vocalist Meghan O’Neil Pennie had to deal with a man speaking down to her.  The video features candid clips of the band and plays off of the concept of the “male gaze,” where women are depicted through men’s POV as it relates to real life.  O’Neil Pennie commented, “I do think it reflects the objectification of women.  My favorite line [in the song] is ‘pay attention and try to look cute’ because I feel like if a man is speaking down to a woman and trying to teach them something unsolicited, they’re expected to bat their eyelashes and thank him.”

“You Don’t Tell Me” appears on Super Unison’s forthcoming album, Auto, which will be released on October 14 through Deathwish IncAuto was recorded at Atomic Garden Studios by Jack Shirley (Oathbreaker, Deafheaven, Loma Prieta) and is concise and intense with most frantic songs coming in at the two minute mark. Within Auto, Super Unison introduce a wash of discordant melody and texture into the fray, keeping things fast paced and smartly aggressive at every twist and turn.

Super Unison features Meghan O’Neil Pennie (formerly of PUNCH) on bass and vocals, Justin Renninger (formerly of Snowing) on drums, and Kevin DeFranco on guitar. Formed in 2014, they released a self-titled EP on vinyl and cassette formats soon after. The EP was incredibly well-received and praised by publications far and wide, from Rolling Stone to Brooklyn Vegan. The band toured the western portion of the USA following the EP’s release, which included shows with Shook Ones, Self Defense Family, Coliseum, Dogs on Acid and more. As veterans of the Bay Area scene and beyond, Super Unison have become known for their incendiary live show in their relatively short time as a band thus far.

Following the release of Auto, Super Unison will tour the west coast, down and over to The Fest in Gainesville on October 30.

A-F Records signs Remainders, ready debut LP

A-F Records has signed Remainders.  Their debut self-titled LP is due out October 21.

Remainders is a melodically dejected punk band.  Formed in Pittsburgh, PA in 2014, Remainders writes heavy-hearted, simple, and sincere songs that speak to the inevitable coping that comes with forced adulthood, processing loss and dredging through heartbreak, all the while figuring out how to somehow function on a daily basis.

Their debut self-titled full length, recorded in Pittsburgh, PA at the “Braddock Hit Factory” with Dave Rosenstraus was mixed and mastered by Derron Nuhfer (Against Me!, Discount, HWM).
