Reliqa Release Video For New Single ‘Dying Light’. Debut Album ‘Secrets Of The Future’ Due Out Friday 31 May

RELIQA
RELEASE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE
DYING LIGHT

DEBUT ALBUMSECRETS OF THE FUTURE
DUE OUT FRIDAY 31 MAY

TOURING NATIONALLY THIS JUNE

Fast-rising Australian metallers Reliqa have released a video for their new single, Dying Light, the third cut to be taken from their upcoming debut album, Secrets of the Future, which sees a 31st May release via Greyscale Records and Nuclear Blast Records.

Vocalist Monique Pym comments: “Dying Light is your last taste of the album before we go full send on May 31st. This one is all about the attitude – it’s got a level of sass and femininity that we haven’t explored before, with a dirty, riffy groove to keep it grounded. I think this song really completes the picture alongside Terminal and Killstar for how many diverse kinds of sounds we’ve managed to pack into the record.”

A lush, diverse and sci-fi-hued collection of songs that traverse fleeting moments of the human experience, Secrets of the Future also possesses a melting pot of stylistic inspiration, with elements spanning melodic metalcore through to contemporary rap, K-Pop, J-Metal, atmospheric pop, modern progressive metal as well as more traditional rock and metal.

With Secrets of the Future, Reliqa aren’t merely gazing at what’s to come; instead, they conjure it with poise and finesse, unpacking a rich and vivid tapestry that explores political injustice on tracks like Killstar (The Cold World), finding power in femininity on Sariah, as well as oscillating spotlights on the inner push-and-pull between protest and acceptance of reality.

Defying genre labels and harnessing their potent sonic identity in the heavy music landscape over the years, Reliqa have evolved from being “ones to watch” into an act destined for genuine greatness.

Whether dazzling onstage supporting the likes of Spiritbox, Halestorm, Sevendust, BABYMETAL or Northlane, whipping festival crowds into a frenzy or headlining their own shows, Reliqa never cease to enamour in a live setting alongside multiple singles commanding over 2 million individual streams, including Doomed and Mr. Magic.

Most recently flexing their nuanced take on heavy modernity with their 2022 EP I Don’t Know What I Am, Reliqa brandished dark grooves, layered soundscapes, electronic flourishes and more. I Don’t Know What I Am may have initially stemmed from the group themselves and the broader music industry being unable to categorise Reliqa‘s unique and immersive stylings; but ultimately, it’s the group’s bold and boundless sense of self that radically sets Reliqa apart from your standard heavy act.

Facing the future to their impending new album and fresh off supporting American rock powerhouses Halesform for their Knotfest Australia 2024 headline sideshows, Reliqa will embark on their Secrets Of The Future Tour this June, with three headline shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney alongside supports RinRin, as well as a performance supporting Caligula’s Horse in Adelaide and an appearance at Never Had So Much Fun in Gosford alongside RedHook, Tiali and many more.

In 2024, the secret is out, the future is now; and its name is Reliqa.

RUN Release Brand New Single ‘Summer’ Feat. John Floreani & Supporting Svalbard Nationally This May

RUN
RELEASE BRAND NEW SINGLE
SUMMER FEAT. JOHN FLOREANI

SUPPORTING SVALBARD NATIONALLY THIS MAY

The cooler months may be imminent, but things are only heating up for Melbourne band RUN, returning today with a brand new single Summer featuring Trophy Eyes frontman John Floreani.
An emphatic addition to the ever-growing RUN sonic universe, Summer layers cascading drumwork, emotive melodics and searing vocals, with frontman Lochlan Watt trading vehement moments with Floreani.
Also accompanied today by a music video directed by Patrick Kearney, Summer is yet another heart-rending gut punch from the Melbourne five-piece.

It was an honour to have my mate John Floreani clean up the chorus on this song, Most of us have become huge fans of Trophy Eyes in recent years, so once we were actually able to pin him down for recording, the collaborative vibes were unreal.

Lochlan Watt

While RUN’s previous studio collaboration, the 2023 single Everyone’s Cancelled, Everything’s Cancer, introduced a full lineup while spitting out the resentment from prior years to create a fresh slate, the track also saw the band go on to tour around the country with Deafheaven, Hexis, and Earth Caller.

Now completed by fellow veteran musicians guitarists Lewis Noke-Edwards and Arron Parker Richards, drummer Adrian Horsman and bassist/vocalist Benn Gaylor, RUN continues to unveil a new bundle of self-produced, bittersweet crushers that shine bright thanks to the glorious mix of Forrester Savell (Karnivool).

“We have a six track EP coming very soon,” Watt concludes. “It features an intro/title track, four seasonal anthems, and a grand finale. I think it blows the band’s previous material out of the water.”

RUN will return to the stage this May supporting the eclectic and emotionally charged British post-hardcore/metal band Svalbard on their debut Australian tour, with performances lined up in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

Make Them Suffer Share New Single ‘Epitaph’ & Down Under Tour Supporting Bring Me The Horizon Kicks Off This Week

A potent fusion of the past, present and future, Perth metalcore outfit Make Them Suffer return today armed with a glossy yet blistering new single, Epitaph out now via Greyscale Records and SharpTone Records.

Continuing the band’s ferocious new sonic chapter, Epitaph swells with a sharp interplay between sharp primal energy and glowing ambience, also accompanied today by a brand new music video.

Of their latest single, the band shares:
“Epitaph is the perfect grafting of new and old in terms of combining elements from our earlier sound with newer ones. Primal yet futuristic, Epitaph comes from a place of contemplation. The lyrics depict a post-doomsday setting and imagine how we as a species might be remembered by other forms of life.”

Following a long break away from music due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Make Them Suffer returned with a blazing bang in 2022, releasing the behemoth single Doomswitch, playing a sold out tour in North America supporting Bad Omens, and performing a completely sold out headline Australian run in support of their new material.

Releasing their first single via the dream team of Greyscale Records and SharpTone Recordsin 2023, the ravenous might of Ghost Of Me, Make Them Suffer toured North America last year as part of Parkway Drive‘s huge Monsters Of Oz Tour, alongside The Amity Affliction and Northlane, as well as ticking off shows closer to home performing 2012’s Neverbloom in full for the first time ever in Australia to resounding acclaim.

Now, Make Them Suffer continue their domination in 2024, embarking this week with an almost entirely sold out Australian run supporting Bring Me The Horizon alongside Sleep Token and Daine, before returning overseas for a run of European and UK festivals this June, including Download Festival, Copenhell, Jera On Air and many more.

“We’re about to settle in for the busiest year of touring in the history of Make Them Suffer and the energy in the band is at an all time high,” the band shares of their huge 2024 ahead. “I’m sure we’ll all be aching for more time at home by November, but for now, we can’t wait to get back on the road and play all these amazing tours and festivals we have lined up.”

“Epitaph is the beginning of a very exciting year for us, and not just in terms of touring. We’re so incredibly thankful for all our supporters, and to be in the position we’re in. Particularly after such an incredible journey. We can’t wait to show everyone what we have in store.

Boston Manor Share New Single ‘Sliding Doors’

BOSTON MANOR
SHARE NEW SINGLE SLIDING DOORS

BOSTON MANOR are today sharing new single Sliding Doors, their second new song of 2024 and one that rides waves of spiking distortion and cuts rich grooves as it goes. Sliding Doors portrays the sometimes seismic impact that the seemingly innocuous actions in our day to day lives can have. It’s a song that in many ways leads right back to the start of Boston Manor. Lead singer Henry Cox says:

Sliding Doors is named after that movie of the same name. I called it that because when we were writing it I started thinking about all of the decisions that I’ve made that have led me to the life I have and how circumstantial a lot of it is. It got me thinking about how Boston Manor started. I’d had a few conversations with Dan [Cunniff, bass] and Mike [Cunniff, lead guitar] (who I barely knew at the time) about starting a band. But at that time I was in art school in a different city and I had a bunch of other stuff going on. I was also starting like two other bands with different people so I figured it was just something that you talk about.”

In a world full or disorder and chaos, all we can do sometimes is respond to what’s laid out in front of us. The results may be unpredictable, glorious or devastating, but as possibility and opportunity present themselves one moment, hide themselves the next, it’s how we react at those junctures that leads us on our ultimate pathway. Expanding, Cox says:

“I’d gone home to visit my parents for the weekend and had taken a bus up to north shore to go and visit a friend, I was on my way home and the bus basically crashed. It wasn’t bad, no one was hurt or anything but I had to get off. It was super late and buses basically stop running at that time in parts of Blackpool. I had been texting Mike and it turned out the bus had crashed at the bottom of his street, so I just went round to his. We basically ended up writing the first song from our demo that night. We played our first show a few weeks later.

If that car hadn’t pulled out on that bus, we probably never would’ve started Boston Manor & been all the places we’ve been, I wouldn’t have met my wife & half of my friends. I don’t know if I would even be playing music now.”

Sliding Doors is a way for the band to recognise that as we go through life and make more choices, some versions of ourselves die away, and new versions emerge. Who we become may all be down to the roll of a dice. This is explored in the accompanying video, as Cox comments:

“We tried to reflect this in the music video, the idea being it’s loads of different realities, some of which I’m a musician some of which I’m doing something totally different. The die hard fans might recognise the final location which is where we shot our very first music video, long since scrubbed from the internet. In a way the band we’re in now feels like an alternate reality to the band we started. I look back at old videos and I barely recognise us!”
