Morningsiders Unveil New Album ‘I’ve Got A Song,’ New Single “Hang The Cedar” Out Now
Morningsiders share, “Sometimes melodies or riffs sit on our shelf for years before we figure out how to build a song around them. We had this piano pattern that we’d return to in the writing room every few months, but it never felt right when we tried to turn it into a chorus. Finally it clicked that what we had in our heads was actually the verse, and all of a sudden Hang the Cedar came together really quickly. It’s a song about the uneasy negotiation of identity within friend groups, and the vertigo of developing a sense of self around how others see you. One of the lines, “I’m going to cultivate an attitude / dye my hair to feel renewed” stands out to me as the crux of things. It was inspired by a good friend reminiscing about a moment from middle school when she sort of fell in between different friend groups. She described it as her “cultivating a personality” era. I love that. It’s like all of a sudden you have a chance to meet yourself, but also to reinvent and curate in a way that you couldn’t before.”

WALLIS BIRD shares ‘Aquarius’ ahead of forthcoming 7th album ‘HANDS’

Conjuring old-school flavored thrash metal devastation with the kind of bombastic firepower that could wake the dead, MISFIRE creates more of a racket than bands twice their size, unleashing song after song of unrelenting savagery.

It’s a vital record for a hellishly turbulent time, a way to belly-laugh while we swallow the bitter reality of America’s hateful roots and complex future; all through the honest eyes of a son of Eastern European immigrants.

The Order of Elijah Premieres “Wolves” at Metal Sucks Today
“In honor of my heritage, this song, “Wolves” was written as a reflection of the strength Indiginous Americans wield despite a suppressed history of oppression that easily bleeds into modern day times.
