“Music-wise, it’s heavy as fuck, and I think on another level, it’s very post-rocky,” Nielsen told Alternative Press back in March. “There are a lot of movements and space and fluidity to the music. I’m really proud of it musically. I’m really proud of it lyrically. It’s the most complete presentation of the band as …

Counterparts Unleash New Single, “Collapse”

Counterparts have teamed with Metal Hammer to premiere the second single off their impending Pure Noise debut, Tragedy Will Find Us.

Titled “Collapse,” the Canadian outfit’s latest offering is a beautiful beatdown laden with the same heart-wrenching emotion found on the previously released “Burn.” Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

“The song is a metaphor for falling out of love with someone, about how all the beauty is stripped away and you’re left, at least in some cases, hating the person you more or less shared a life with,” …

REVIEW: Four Year Strong – ‘Four Year Strong’

Artist: Four Year Strong
Album: Four Year Strong
Label: Pure Noise Records
Genre: Easycore, baby

Before we take the next 1,100 words or so to discuss the new Four Year Strong record, let’s talk about presentation.

Four Year Strong is a band that has always cared about presentation. Ridiculous promo pictures featuring the band’s enormous men in FYS-branded varsity jackets, the famous beards, song titles riddled with highly-quotable movie lines, and cartoon album artwork with robot sharks, wizards, and centaurs are all essential parts of the brand that Four Year Strong spent so much time building in the late 2000s. …

Brigades Announce Debut LP, Stream Lead Single, “Enemy”

South Carolina’s Brigades have teamed up with Substream Magazine to premiere the lead single off their debut full-length, Indefinite. Stream “Enemy” after the break, and let us know if you’re a fan in the replies.

“’Enemy’ is a song about my personal thoughts on organized religion and how toxic it can be to everyone on this earth,” vocalist Darren Young told Substream. “It’s a little more political and controversial compared to most of the other songs, but definitely an important one.”

Indefinite will arrive on July 28 via Pure Noise Records, and will act as the outfit’s second release …

Counterparts Announce New Record ‘Tragedy Will Find Us,’ Release First Single

Counterparts have proven their worth as the most promising band in melodic metalcore with their fantastic 2013 record, The Difference Between Hell And Home. The Canadian band will follow up that near-perfect record with Tragedy Will Find Us, out August 1 on Pure Noise. You can stream the first single, “Burn,” below.

“Burn” starts off as a standard Counterparts song, with a melodic guitar riff that begins to build up the emotional weight carried by the urgent instrumentals and vocals. Things get weird around the 90-second mark with a tempo change that I love and a spoken word …

Four Year Strong Debut “Eating My Words”

Pure Noise Records Welcomes No Good News

During the winter of 2014 I discovered a band from New York called No Good News that I immediately knew had something special to their sound. I can’t describe what that something was in detail, but I knew it when I heard it, and with each of the thirty-plus plays I gave their EP since that time I have heard it again and again.

Turns out, I’m not alone in thinking this band could be the next big thing.

Today, Pure Noise Records announced the addition of No Good News to their ever-growing roster of talent. The label will be …

Senses Fail Release Disconcerting Music Video For “The Importance Of The Moment Of Death”

In November of last year, New Jersey post-hardcore outfit Senses Fail announced that they will be entering the studio and releasing Pull The Thorns From Your Heart, their impending sixth studio album, some time this summer. Lead singer Buddy Nielsen describes the effort as “the complete documentation of my transformative spiritual experience from the darkness to the light.”

The new record is officially scheduled for a June 30 release via Pure Noise. Below you will find the music video for its lead single, entitled “The Importance Of The Moment Of Death.” The video features a frighteningly accurate depiction of …

Four Year Strong Release Lyric Video For “I’m A Big, Bright, Shining Star”

In a day that just keeps delivering good news, Four Year Strong have released a lyric video for their new track “I’m A Big, Bright, Shining Star,” off of their upcoming LP, Four Year Strong, due out June 2 out via Pure Noise Records.

With the music released thus far considered a return to form for the band, “I’m A Big, Bright, Shining Star” continues with the high-octane punk covered in pop the band is known for.

The song title appears to clearly be a reference to the one and only Boogie Nights, the 1997 film directed by …

The Story So Far Stream “Heavy Gloom”

The pop-punk world is set to explode on May 18 when The Story So Far release their new self-titled record. We’ve already heard a few cuts from the record, and the band has started off Monday morning by releasing another single titled “Heavy Gloom.”

Track two on the new record, “Heavy Gloom” plays closely to the formula we’ve come to expect from the Walnut Creek band. As usual, Parker Cannon’s powerful voice takes center stage over a grooving, distorted pop-punk instrumental. I’m a fan of the prominent bass tones on this song, but all in all, this sounds a lot …
