Kingdom Collapse Release Official Music Video for Single “Break Free”
Kingdom Collapse has recently partnered with The Fuel Music (Adelitas Way, Thousand Foot Krutch, Red, etc.) for distribution. The band’s singer, Jonathan Norris adds, “We’re stoked to have such an awesome team around us that believes in the independent vision of the band.” The band has shown that nothing stands in their way as they approach the release of the new single with a stacked touring schedule.
Introducing Edie Bens, Shares “Had You Never Gone Away”
The 21-year-old rising Welsh singer-songwriter Edie Bens discovered one boozy night, a treasure trove of poetry by her drummer’s dad about his late mother, which inspired her first stunning release on Glassnote Records ‘Had You Never Gone Away’. A vivid storyteller inspired by the great stars of Country music, Edie has an undeniable talent for classic songwriting with candid charm when taking delicate stories from her travels with her band. Mixed by Lee Smith (Holly Humberstone, Dylan) the poignant, yet melodic track arrives alongside its official video which sees Edie in her natural environment in a stripped-back honest portrayal of the song and is a sublime introduction into Edie’s upcoming body of work.
Nick Leng Shares “Easy” Single via Cool Hunting
When Nick Leng describes his music, he often refers to color. The indie artist’s gift is an abstract type of synesthesia: a kaleidoscope of emotions manifested into enthralling sounds. “I like dissonance, tension,” he says, “but also, joy and beauty are so important to me.” The most stunning songwriting is at once beguiling and relatable. And Leng’s second album Spirals (out July 22 via SOTA Records) is just that: the untethered sound of Nick Leng falling in love with music again.

GATES TO THE MORNING Stream Entirety of Walk Between Worlds Album
New Jersey progressive trio, GATES TO THE MORNING are streaming their new album Walk Between Worlds which is out on July 22nd, 2022.
The band comments “We are proud to release our sophomore album “Walk Between Worlds” which is a unique effort that features unplugged renditions of old and unreleased music as well as tracks that are exclusive to this record. “Walk Between Worlds” is the calm before the storm; a sort of unplugged/folk detour before resuming a sound that will closely follow up our Progressive/Post-Black Metal sound from our debut.”
Built on a feverish vocal performance from FLETCHER, “Becky’s So Hot” explores a particularly complex form of passion.
Says FLETCHER, “I wrote ‘Becky’s So Hot’ a couple years ago after I was creeping on my ex’s new girlfriend’s Instagram while I was in the studio. I accidentally liked a picture of her wearing a vintage t-shirt of my ex’s, one that I’ve worn before. The complexities of moving on were something I wanted to explore and it felt more interesting to me to write something from the perspective of being in in awe of her; sort of like ‘damn… it kinda stings that she’s so hot, but I can’t even be mad about it because I get it…she’s hot.’ Girl Of My Dreams picks up where THE S(EX) TAPES leaves off and weaves through my dreams, fears, fantasies, messy moments and all the fleeting feelings in between. It paints a picture of how pain can evolve and so can you.”

The Murder Capital Return With Their New Single “Only Good Things”
This track for us has been an exciting evolution for the band. It’s so bright. It’s so colorful. This is a part of the narrative of the overall record that we feel reaches a real place of inner calm, inner peace but at its core, it’s a love song. You get a song like this where, the protagonist in this song is quite simply asking – not pleading – just willing to ask their counterpart to rid them of their intrusive thoughts, the devils on their shoulders and to be truly vulnerable. We’re so excited to go to a place like this because perhaps it’s not what is expected of us. It stood out to me during the creation of this record that it is more about the friends that are still here and celebrating those connections, those relationships and being unafraid of life and its many seasons. Where ‘Only Good Things’ stands within the record is at a moment where the sonic and the lyrical narrative especially, are of newfound joy.
