Ringo Deathstarr - Gods Dream

REVIEW: Ringo Deathstarr – ‘God’s Dream’

Artist: Ringo Deathstarr
Album: God’s Dream
Genre: Shoegaze, Alternative Rock
Label: Noyes Records

Illuminated by a live show here in Boston, Ringo Deathstarr’s newest work, EP God’s Dream, is a lush landscape of constant gazes at foot apparel, all while getting lost in the void of uncalculated, and stringing thoughts of the walls that bind our realities, or something like that. The mini album is a collective anthology of noise, melody, and chaos, all while erupting in a skillfully contained manner.…

Chevelle-1

Chevelle Stream New Track “Hunter Eats Hunter”

Alt-rock mainstays Chevelle are exactly two weeks away from releasing their seventh(!) studio album La Gárgola and have offered up yet another new track for your listening pleasure.

The track is called “Hunter Eats Hunter” and it keeps with the dark, heavy vibe of the album’s previously released lead single “Take Out the Gunman.” If you like what you hear, you can buy the song or pre-order the album on iTunes. Better yet, check out the band on tour as they hit the road with Middle Class Rut throughout the month of April. …

If you are a fan of alternative rock music then a small up and coming group by the name of Far From Over might be right up your alley. They are a four piece rock outfit hailing from New York.

Reunited Failure Tapped to Open Tool’s March Tour

Say what you will about Tool’s lack of urgency to release a follow-up to 2006′s 10,000 Days, the band continues to string together a small run of tour dates nearly every year and they’ve yet to disappoint when it comes to choosing an opening act.

Over the course of their career, Tool has hand-picked everyone from Meshuggah to The Flaming Lips to Russian Circles to open for them, and their quickly approaching March arena run will be no different with recently reunited alt-rock outfit Failure set to kick off the majority of the dates. The move isn’t necessarily a …

The band is currently participating in the Rockville Battle Of The Bands competition. If you are in the Jacksonville, Florida area and want to see this …

Icarus The Owl

REVIEW: Icarus The Owl – ‘Icarus The Owl’

Artist: Icarus The Owl
Album: Icarus The Owl
Genre: Alternative rock, post hardcore
Label: Unsigned

As much as I am a fan of metalcore, I also enjoy alternative rock/post hardcore bands (like Hands Like Houses). These bands have tons of energy, and usually have some great lyrical content. Icarus The Owl falls under that category. They are an unsigned four-piece rock/post hardcore outfit based out of Portland, Oregon. Their latest album is their third full-length, which is being self-released like their first two. It’s been two years since their last album, so what’s changed? You may be pleasantly surprised.…

Chevelle Stream New Single “Take Out The Gunman,” Announce New Album for April

A digital single for Chevelle‘s new single “Take Out the Gunman” will become available tomorrow, but a stream of the track has already surfaced online. The track comes from the band’s upcoming album La Gárgola, which is due out on April 1.

For nearly 15 years, Chevelle have been a bright spot in the stagnant mainstream rock scene, staying true to their influences (Helmet, Deftones, Tool) and standing out amongst a crowd of post-grunge bands sounding completely derivative of one another. “Take Out The Gunman” is a riff monster in line with classic Chevelle, though I don’t think …

Sound Of Seasons

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Sound Of Seasons – “Tried My Best”

If there’s one new band you check out this month it should be the four piece alternative rock outfit from Sydney, Australia known as Sound Of Seasons. The group released a brand new single a few days ago titled “Tried My Best.” The song is available to stream and for free download via Triple J Unearthed. If you like what you hear, the band has two other songs available to download for free on that site.

Sound Of Seasons have crafted a sound that resembles bands like Hands Like Houses and Sent By Ravens. If you’d like to follow …

PovertyHollow

Poverty Hollow Premiere “Concrete” Music Video

Connecticut alternative rockers Poverty Hollow have been around for years under a different band name, the slightly more normal name (and ever confusing with bands like SUUNS) of Suns. Nonetheless, the band has just released a self titled EP, toured with up and coming indie rock band Ovlov, and now, on Bloody Disgusting, they have debuted their first music video under the new moniker. “Concrete” follows the band being haunted in an abandoned mansion.

More than that, fans of experimental music and vocals in the style of Sunny Day Real Estate should check out this sweet new tune. Watch …

Anchorage

REVIEW: Anchorage – ‘Patience’

Artist: Anchorage
Album: Patience
Genre: Alternative rock
Label: None

Anchorage are a progressive rock band hailing from Denver, Colorado. They’ve been together since 2008, and in that time have released two EPs and a full length album. Their full length, Patience, was the most recent album to be released by the band. It’s also the release that they decided to go in a different direction with their sound.

If you are a fan of Anchorage, then the first track on Patience might come as a shock to you. The song, “Shadows,” is a complete 180 from both Truth In

IV

REVIEW: The 1975 – ‘IV’

ARTIST: The 1975
ALBUM: IV
GENRE: Alternative rock
LABEL: Vagrant Records

The 1975 have been playing music since 2002, but they haven’t always been known by that name. They tested out a number of different names, before they finally settled on The 1975. It was inspired by a note hand written inside a book vocalist Matthew Healy found, which, coupled with some other writings on the previous owner’s descent into insanity and desire to take their life, struck a chord with Healy. IV will be the band’s fourth EP, and is the build up to the band’s first full length …
