Avatar Posts "Night Never Ending" Video

Avatar just unleashed another visually stunning music video with longtime director Johan Carlén at the helm. Check out the new clip for "Night Never Ending" below.

"It's is a special song, being probably the most upbeat and, dare I say, happy piece we've ever released," says frontman Johannes Eckerström. "But under the surface of the fragile message of hope and fighting spirit it is little more than a prelude to a tragedy and that is what we set out to capture when we decided to make a video for it.

"It is very close to my heart for being the one video where there is no 'rocking out' going on and we get to capture a side of Avatar that is just as integral as the good, headbanging times we love sharing with our supporters all around the world. There are few things in this world as beautiful and fascinating as contrasts and this is what all of 'Feathers & Flesh' is all about. Hope and tragedy." More...

Racetraitor Takes Aim At U.S. Election

At the precise time the U.S. seems to have put up the batshit signal, the radical rabble-rousers from Racetraitor return. Racetraitor is back to take aim at this crazy election cycle with "By The Time I Get To Pennsylvania," the first new music the band has released in roughly seventeen years.

The Chicago agitators deliver a musical molotov cocktail with the same incendiary spirit as the band's metal/hardcore punk missives last heard in the late nineties. The band's first show in nearly twenty years is set for the International Day of Action Against Police Brutality, on October 22nd, where fellow nineties hardcore veterans Earthmover will join Racetraitor at the Cobra Lounge in Chicago.

"We had discussed playing a show or doing something else over the years, but nostalgia was never all that motivating, so the idea died," explains drummer Andy Hurley. "But with everything happening in the past couple of years, from the way things heated up in Ferguson, Missouri, to the rise in xenophobia and bigotry reflected by the popularity of Donald Trump, making new music with Racetraitor felt important again. We needed to respond to this moment in history in our own way." More...
