Death thrashers DEMIRICOUS Reveal New Single “Smoke Chaser”
Indiana death/thrash band DEMIRICOUS have unleashed their song “Smoke Chaser”. The track is taken from their highly anticipated album III: Chaotic Lethal, which is out on May 13, 2022. The song will be available on all streaming platforms this coming Friday April 29th.
The band comments:
“From a writing standpoint, we took a bit of a different approach on this one. With the chorus, we wanted to open it up with a huge melodic riff, and a catchy, anthemic hook. And to counteract the catchiness of the chorus and melody, we wanted to cap it with one of the ugliest moments on the entire record. “Smoke Chaser” lyrically is about how humanity has a false sense of relevance, as a result of technology. We are all addicted, and constantly chasing something we will never actually obtain.”

The album also features the already iconic Mick Jagger series theme tune “Strange Game” as well as performances from Jagger on harmonica and vocals within the track “Slough House (Strange Game)”.

For his 2nd release of the year, Reading, PA artist U-nik Stylez connects with long-time collaborator and seasoned hip-hop producer Per C Wells on “The Purpose.” The song lyrics by U-nik define the multiple trials and tribulations behind the title itself, while the instrumentation by Per C has some serious percussion as well as the signature swing he’s known for.

OBSIDIOUS Releases Brand New Single, “Bound by Fire”
OBSIDIOUS comments on the dark lyrical themes of the track: “Another song with descriptive lyrics, this time dealing with a subject, unfortunately, on everyone’s lips at present: the horrors of wars and armed conflicts. The suffering of innocent people who have little or nothing to do with it, seeing their lives cut short. People who see their comrades die and, in other cases, are even forced to kill people they knew or were friends with just because they were on the opposite side. Killing or dying for something they did not start. One of humanity’s most brutal dichotomies.

Electro-Pop Duo LOVE STAR Returns With Their Powerful New Single “Fue Amor”
Despite its sparkling upbeat melodies and feel-good rhythms, the story of “Fue Amor” is more serious in nature, exploring pain, rejection and growth while emphasizing the importance of self-care and self-love, especially in the face of adversity or the aftermath of a breakup. Love Star’s impactful lyrics succeed in reminding us that taking the time to sit with ourselves alone is not equivalent to loneliness, but rather it provides us with a valuable opportunity to reflect on who we are, our experiences, and the people around us, therefore allowing us to move on, let go, and become a better version of ourselves.
AWAKE AT LAST Release New Single “Bloodline” to all major outlets! Announce Tour Dates as Support for Icon For Hire
Awake At Last returned with a new single “Bloodline” on April 29th. Produced by Erik Ron (Godsmack, Black Veil Brides, I Prevail), the hard-hitting track contains plenty of angst at the current state of the world. “Bloodline is written from a perspective of frustration, and a reluctance to accept the current state we all live in. The song questions the media, and how during such a dark time people seemed to be more divided than ever, rather than come together. It asks the question of whether or not we can learn from history, or if we are doomed to repeat it. I wanted it to connect to the listeners who couldn’t help but worry about what is going to happen next and whether or not we can rely on the current state of media and information to be prepared for it.” – says the band’s vocalist, Vincent Torres.
