Alt-metal band VIOLET BLEND reveal new music video “Among All These Fools”
“There is no more uncertain and difficult place to understand than a crime scene” says lead vocalist & composer Giada Celeste Chelli. “The song tries to reflect this feeling of insecurity and vagueness, but it also tries to instill a sense of hope and rebirth that (for me) can come from the music. Only music, with its bursting life force, can alleviate and heal the wounds of the soul, so the song is an invocation, a prayer to the music to accept us, to enfold us with its power, to inspire us and make us ascend to its heaven. Music becomes the only God to believe in and the only muse who can save us.

California-based Electronic music duo DANCE WITH THE DEAD have released their sixth studio album, ‘Driven To Madness’, today on all major streaming/digital platforms! The new record features ten tracks of dynamic, riff-forward thrills that provide the ultimate soundtrack for fans of the group’s John Carpenter-inspired sound, along with a guest feature from the aforementioned Carpenter and his son Cody on the opening track “March of the Dead”. ‘Driven To Madness’ was first announced in late 2021, and features the lead-off single “Sledge”.
The “Cold Ocean” video, directed by Rob Kassabian and starring Mark Weills as “Walker Slim,” was shot on a cold November day in various Brooklyn locales, including the seasonally bare Brighton Beach and Coney Island boardwalks. Weills as Slim portrays a down-on-his-luck loser who must hawk a prized possession to buy a ring for a lover who never shows. SAVAK principals Michael Jaworski and Sohrab Habibion have supporting roles as “Babyshoes” and “Sniffles” respectively. Two Brooklyn hustlers mired in their grind, doing what they do before moving on to their next grift. The video ends with Walker Slim stood up on the boardwalk, frustrated by a failed romantic rendezvous facing unrequited love and a broken dream of what will never be. The tide rises and the tide falls.

We had never done overnight shoots or worked with so much pyro. The team behind it was awesome and we had an absolute blast.”

This is a record by a band that intends to express utmost honesty without any fear or apology, “a therapeutic process of emotional release through the music, but also one of establishing a truer human connection within the band” as described by the trio.

GILMORE TRAIL – Release: “Nocturne” – Watch Video || ‘Impermanence’ Album – out 21 Jan
A world away from the tempestuous post-rock journeying of previous single “Echoes of Solitude”, “Nocturne” captures an altogether quieter, restrained and contemplative side of Gilmore Trail. A song for the midnight hours, it’s a calming and cathartic instrumental piece to still the mind and soothe the senses.
