TDW Release New Video
Fans of progressive rock/metal and crazy music videos filled with weird ideas can rejoice, as TDW launched the third music video for the song “Another Choice Another Universe” today on Youtube!
Frontman Tom said the following about the idea behind this video:
“This song was inspired by TDW fan Jim Wilkinson who wanted me to write a song about paralel universes and how every choice we make can lead to a completely new world of it’s own. I decided to take that premise and imagine a paralel universe in which I would be a weird animated lion cartoon character flying around my hometown of Amersfoort, singing about the many possibilities that paralel universes can bring. I wanted this video to be just as crazy as the premise and I think I succeeded, haha!”
The song is taken from the album Fountains that is out now on digital & streaming services worldwide. Physical copies of the Fountains Vinyl/CD package will be sent out to presellers and new orders as soon as the vinyl has arrived at the label HQ.

LIGHTS DEBUTS NEW SINGLE “REAL THING FT. ELOHIM”
Lights expanded on the track, “‘Real Thing’ challenges the traditional concept of ‘The one for you.’ I don’t think it actually exists, but we are predominantly sold this idea that we need to find one person, lock them in forever, and you can’t change and grow. We’re always looking for the real thing, but it’s not always fucking real. Elohim and I had a really fun couple days working at her spot in LA writing this track. She is a virtuoso!”

Ghost Town Remedy Negotiate Hot Licks + Cold Shoulders On “This December”
Spike that eggnog and get ready for seasonal depression. It’s officially the holidays as Music city goof punx Ghost Town Remedy today share the latest installment from their upcoming Terminally Chill EP (due Jan 21st). “This December” finds the group working through a festive breakup in the only way that they know how; through slinky guitar licks, crunching power chords and gang vocals. Vocalist and guitarist TJ Maher explains that despite the track’s upbeat drive, there’s a melancholy undertow. “For many people the holidays are not always bright and merry. It’s not all peppermint sticks, caroling with hot chocolate, and dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh. Often we are reminded of how incredibly difficult the past year has been, best friends who have grown further apart, family that doesn’t understand or support you, failed relationships, and loved ones who are no longer with us.” He concludes, “If you’ve ever felt alone during the holidays, pour one out and let’s have a drink. This one’s for you.”

“The Fix Is In” is the first taste from Project Renegade’s upcoming album titled “Ultra Terra”.

The song retains Project Renegade’s groovy style and in your face aesthetic while adding new sonic layers to push things in a new level and direction. The band strives to motivate everyone to break away from that mold of apathy with a relentless attack that says it how it is and hopes that we all fight together as citizens of this world to regain the right for a normal and logical trajectory in our lives.
