LISTEN TO “WAITING FOR THE WAR” BY ’80s DANISH PUNK BAND ADS
After the initial blast of punk rock bands made their impression on the youth of the late 1970s, subgenres quickly emerged. Some preferred the faster, louder aggression of hardcore, others the angular danceability of post-punk, some the raw and more personal home-made sound of DIY, and so on. Looking back among and between these genres we now recognize various blends of punk, post-punk, goth rock, industrial, and DIY as “ deathrock.” In 2014, Sacred Bones Records launched the series Killed By Deathrock to document an entire scene of bands that haven’t yet received proper recognition.

New Jersey post-hardcore rock outfit Chasing Safety recently announced the release of their sophomore album, NOMAD, set for January 6th, 2017 with Outerloop Records. Today, the band is partnering exclusively with Metal Underground to unveil a new video for the album’s debut single, “Brand New Prison,” which was produced by John Ryan Flaherty and can be viewed here. The video follows the band in-studio where they show a live recording of “Brand New Prison” at Bloodstone Studios in Greensboro, NC. “Brand New Prison” is about the daily struggle we all face, everyday it seems there is something weighing on your mind. Vocalist Johnny Galivan elaborates:
“The majority of the inspiration for the song has come from crucial life decisions I have been having to make lately. The theme of NOMAD is about how no matter how many people you are surrounded by, you can still feel alone. Being the first one written, I wrote this song about how even though I have my family and friends, with these types of life decisions they weigh solely on me.” – Johnny Galivan

Marina Maximilian, ‘My Boy’
Ukraine-born singer, songwriter, and actress Marina Maximilian emigrated to Israel at the age of three. She studied with her mother, a classical pianist, sang in choirs, attended a music conservatory, and by the age of fifteen was performing in front of thousands at the Red Sea Jazz Festival.
Being a star comes with some baggage – like personal managers with high expectations. “That can create artificial pressure when we’re making songs, because everyone expects a hit,” Muskat explains. But the combination of Maximilian’s humility and undeniable talent makes all the tension disappear. “Every time we’re in the studio together, the music always comes out a bit off-center, and everyone starts getting worried,” Muskat laughs. “But the proof is in the end result.”
