Airbourne Posts "Breakin' Outta Hell" Video

"I'm gonna hit the highway and never look back" is the line that launches Airborune's latest, tarmac-trashin' single "Breakin' Outta Hell."

The lyric video accompanying the song - created by Richard Oakes from Dark Fable Media - may have implications for those with easy access to open roads. Watch the clip from start to finish and you might just get the urge to open the throttle.

"We get a lot of feedback from our fans saying how much they love the faster tracks," says Airbourne frontman Joel O'Keeffe. "But when they play them in the car... well, it can be tough on their pocket with all the speeding fines! 'Breakin' Outta Hell' is definitely one of THOSE numbers... even the guys who filmed the lyric video were stopped by the police and given a fine.

"For us, these visuals really sum up the feeling behind the song and the album, too. The whole message is right there. Put on the single, or the album, and it's, 'Fuck the boss and fuck all the tax I owe. I'm going out, I'm getting pissed and I'm going to listen to some hard rock 'n' roll.' No ballads, no bullshit. I'm breaking out of hell!"

"Breakin' Outta Hell" is the title track off Airbourne's fourth studio album, which is due out via Spinefarm Records on September 23rd. More...

Shadow Witch Releasing "Sun Killer"

Shadow Witch's "Sun Killer" album is coming via Snake Charmer Coalition on August 15th, 2016, with two advance tracks up for streaming below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Shadow Witch delivers a fresh idea on the stoner rock genre, and yet calls to mind influences of 70’s doom and 90’s grunge. Shadow Witch’s 'Sun Killer,' the debut full-length from Kingston New York's own, is all about the analog warmness within which each instrument is heard in all its fuzzed out glory crashing headfirst into each song. Huge guitars, big and booming Bonham drums and enough low end to cause speaker damage. And the vocals are flat-out awesome, like Ozzy minus the years of substance abuse, clear and impassioned."

Report

Chicago Open Air Day Three

Day 3: Sunday 7/17/2016

The best part of being Cuban/Irish is that I'm tan year round but still shrivel up like bacon when exposed to too much sunlight. I had the nastiest sunburn ever which even days later had my forehead covered in acne and the skin on my nose flaking off. And after looking at myself in the mirror, the first two words that came to mind were, “worth it.” As somebody too perpetually broke to wear sunscreen and already shelling out ungodly amounts of money just to stay fed and hydrated, a sunburn was a rather small price to pay to continue to have a really great time.

Since my arctic camo shorts were completely drenched in beer, I decided that now was the time to break out an even more egregious pair of camo shorts. Neon green and black are a pattern that can't blend into any environment which is why I bought them in the first place. Just the most outrageous thing I could possibly own... and now I had an excuse!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I missed the first three acts since I got there late. I kept waking up later each morning due to the sheer quantity of alcohol I was drinking as my car needed engine repairs and that meant that I wasn't driving. That fact that the gates opened earlier with each passing day didn't help either since Gemini Syndrome started playing a full half hour earlier than Through Fire did on Friday. So I ultimately have no opinions on Gemini Syndrome, Upon a Burning Body or We Came As Romans and I'm not going to fabricate a story just for the sake of comprehensiveness. There are some videos on Youtube and I watched them but I still lack anything resembling an opinion since bootlegs can never compare to the real thing. More...

Nightwish To Release "Vehicle Of Spirit" DVD

After touring for a year and a half throughout almost every corner of the world and leaving fans of all nationalities breathless, the time has come for Nightwish to immortalize the "Endless Forms Most Beautiful" tour on DVD. Therefore, the symphonic metal visionaries are set to release the new live milestone "Vehicle Of Spirit" on November 4th, featuring not only two full concerts, but also plenty of bonus material.

"The title ‘Vehicle Of Spirit’ came from a friend of Troy's, who after seeing our show a few years ago defined Nightwish as 'A vehicle of spirit that defies category'. That beautiful description has followed us ever since, and felt like a perfect match as the DVD title," states keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen.

Sold out arenas and spectacular shows with never before seen pyro effects, wind machines, video screens and of course Nightwish's incomparable melodies are the elements that made their latest tour so unique. Special highlights for the band have been two particular shows though:

The one in London, where they not only played their hymns such as "Élan" and the majestic "The Greatest Show On Earth" to more than 12,000 fans, but also welcomed the world famous scientist Richard Dawkins live on stage with the band. Richard Dawkins´ works had a massive impact on the thematical orientation of the latest studio album "Endless Forms Most Beautiful." Finland's Tampere show however was a home run for the band and Nightwish had never before had such an immense stage production with them.

"I would say the main part of the DVD are those two shows, both Wembley and Tampere. Wembley is mentioned first due to its recognizably and legendary status. I remember the show being very special, both a goal achieved, and a starting point. The crowd was heartwarming. The presence of Richard Dawkins on stage was just mind-blowing. The overall experience was a once-in-a-lifetime thrill ride! The show in Ratina Stadion, Tampere, was a home crowd specialty (for 4/6th of the band) with the biggest stage production we've ever had. A lovely atmosphere throughout the concert, with many same faces in the front row as there were 15 years ago. Heartfelt." More...

Liv Sin Signs To Despotz Records

Former Sister Sin vocalist Liv Sin is currently in a secret location working on her debut solo album which is being produced by longtime U.D.O. bassist, Fitty Wienhold. The as yet untitled album sees Liv working with two Swedish musicians: Per Bjelovuk on drums and Patrick Ankermark on guitars. The album will see a worldwide release in early 2017 through Swedish label, Despotz Records, with extensive touring expected after the album is released.

Liv says of the signing, "To me, signing with Swedish label Despotz feels great because I know they work a lot both internationally and here in Sweden. I think Despotz will give me the best start for my new band and for a successful future".

Omer Akay from Despotz adds “Liv Sin's presence as a strong front woman and her unique voice didn't go unnoticed here at Despotz, and now it´s finally a dream come true to work with Liv Sin and take her music beyond the masses”.

From the dark beaches of south Sweden, Liv ”Sin” Jagrell emerged as a major force as the vocalist for hard rockers Sister Sin. Throughout their 13 year career, Sister Sin sold thousands of albums and toured the world with high profile tours supporting the likes of Slayer and King Diamond on the Rockstar Mayhem festival tour, as well as being a part of the Revolver magazine ”Hottest Chicks in Metal” tour. Sister Sin toured relentlessly for over a decade across Europe and North America garnering an intensely loyal following of rockers that craved the band’s aggressive and melodic brand of hard rock.

When Sister Sin called it quits at the end of 2015, Liv knew that she had much more to give to her fans. From this, Liv Sin was born. More...

Motorowl Streams New Song "Om Generator"

German psychedelic metal act Motorowl is streaming the new song "Om Generator." The song is the title track to the upcoming new release, which will be available via Century Media Records on August 26th.

The band was formed in 2014 when most of its members were not even twenty years old! Motorowl quickly developed a heavy sound blessed with fabulous riffs, great vocal melodies, and a grinding Hammond organ on top. Think Spiritual Beggars or Uriah Heep on a bad acid trip. Think 70's inspired, damn heavy hard rock with a contemporary, gloomy twist.

"Om Generator" was co-produced by Fabian Hildebrandt (of German deathers Deserted Fear) and the mighty Dan Swanö took over mix and mastering duties. Believe Dan, when he praises Motorowl as an "amazing mixture of stoner and 70's hard rock executed with finesse. I had an amazing time mixing their songs, that always seem to take a turn towards the unexpected."
