Today Melbourne based rock/metal giants Suspyria released their long-awaited new album “The Valley Of Despair”. Produced by Christopher Vernon (Stuck Out, Deadlights, Better Half…), the album includes 9 new tracks.
“The Standouts” is all about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. This song is for all the good people who haven’t got the recognition they deserve. Bryan Ruby has dedicated this song to his grandfather aka Pops and his sister. Pops is a proud US Army veteran who raised a family of five kids and he’s still inspiring everyone, even at 84 years old. His hard work and can-do attitude are the reasons Bryan’s family is here today. Bryan’s sister teaches middle school math at one of the poorest school districts in the country and this song is for her too. It may be a thankless job, but it’s inspiring to know how passionate she is about helping those kids.

St. Lucia shares “Utopia” LP + “Gimme the Night” music video ft. Ireland Basinger Baldwin || On Tour Now
“The song came about because I shamelessly fell in love with a girl I’ve never met. I came across her on the explore page on Instagram,” Max Drazen recalls. “I wanted to let her know how I felt but I’m not a huge DM person. So instead I wrote a love letter (which became ‘Blurry Pictures’), letting her know that I wanted to be the one in the pictures on her Instagram. Our star-crossed love fizzled out just as quickly as it started when I realized she’s from half way across the world and that I sadly wasn’t planning on living in Germany any time soon. Although, it did give me a pretty great song, if I do say so myself.”
