Bullet For My Valentine Release New Single & Video ‘Rainbow Veins’

Bullet For My Valentine have released new single Rainbow Veins from their forthcoming self-titled album Bullet For My Valentine.

Rainbow Veins is out now and we couldn’t be happier for you guys to finally hear it. It is one of our favourite tracks from the upcoming album and we’re sure it’ll be one of yours too. Turn it up!” – Bullet For My Valentine

Meanwhile, Bullet For My Valentine (the album) will now be released on November 5, 2021 via Spinefarm /Search & Destroy. The 2-week delay is due to covid related manufacturing issues.

Matt Tuck began writing the album in September 2019 before the Coronavirus pandemic brought things screeching to a halt in early 2020. But in June 2020, Tuck and long-time producer, Carl Bown, who co-produced the band’s 2015 album, Venom, and produced and mixed Gravity, picked up the pace again. Together, they hunkered down at Treehouse Studio in Chesterfield, where the remainder of the album was written.

Pre-orders for Bullet For My Valentine‘s seventh studio album are now live, with an instant download of singles, Knives, & Parasite and special bundle options, including a unique clipping from the backdrop used on the bands Venom world tour from 2015 – 2017, t-shirts, hoodies, gold & silver cassettes, and limited vinyl.

MINISTRY Releases Bold New Music Video For ‘Disinformation’

MINISTRY Releases Bold New Music Video For ‘Disinformation’ To Celebrate The Release Of New Record MORAL HYGIENE Out Now Via Nuclear Blast

15th Studio Album From Industrial Juggernauts Is Overwhelmingly Praised And Features Al Jourgensen’s Perspective On Societal Ills

In celebration of the release of brand-new album Moral Hygieneout now via Nuclear BlastMINISTRY releases the explosive new music video for the latest single, ‘Disinformation’ about the slippery slope we find ourselves in when consuming mass media without critical thinking.

Moral Hygiene is MINISTRY’s 15th studio album and features some of the project’s strongest and most inspired material to date. It features the creative masterwork of founder and creator Al Jourgensen who spent the pandemic pause in 2020 ruminating on the new world we as a society have found ourselves in – while pondering just what we are going to do about it.

Stream Moral Hygiene here: http://nblast.de/MinistryMoralHygiene

The 10 tracks are a follow-up to 2018’s lauded AmeriKKKant and put forth Jourgensen’s societal manifesto and plea for civilization to get back to a set of standards that lives up to and embraces our humanity.

Previous singles have included ‘Alert Level’ (sounding the alarm on the state society is in), ‘Good Trouble’ (a rallying cry to fight for human rights in homage to Civil Rights leader John Lewis) and ‘Search And Destroy’ (the unique take on The Stooges classic), the latter of which features guitar virtuoso Billy Morrison (Billy Idol/Royal Machines). Morrison is also heavily featured on a number of songs on the album. The record also includes a collaboration with Jello Biafra (Jourgensen’s cohort in side project LARD) on ‘Sabotage Is Sex’.

Moral Hygiene was recorded with engineer Michael Rozon (also behind the boards on AmeriKKKant) at Scheisse Dog Studio, Jourgensen’s self-built home studio and creative lab. As with all MINISTRY albums, all songs are written and performed by Al Jourgensen. Additional contributions come from Billy Morrison (Billy Idol, Royal Machines), Cesar Soto (Man The Mute), John Bechdel (Killing Joke, Fear Factory), Roy Mayorga (Stonesour, Soulfly, Nausea), Paul D’Amour (Tool, Feersum Ennjin), Arabian Prince (N.W.A.), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) and sitar player Flash.

Here is what media has had to say aboutMoral Hygiene:

MINISTRY’s new LP ‘Moral Hygiene’ is one of their best … ‘Moral Hygiene’ has quickly become one of my favorite records of 2021 … MINISTRY mastermind Al Jourgensen has come back to embrace some of the soundscapes found in the band’s earlier releases.”Metal Insider

“’Moral Hygiene’ is truly an album for its time. … It is fresh, relevant, and stacked with incisive socio-political commentary from one of extreme music’s veterans of discontented rage. … Exciting, angry, and unapologetic: exactly how we like our MINISTRY.”Hysteria Magazine

“Having bands like MINISTRY around is still pretty critical when it feels like the social contract is hanging together by a thread. … What Jourgensen has been able to do … is make each MINISTRY album a statement about the world we live in now and what we should do to make it better. The music is as abrasive and confrontational as ever.”Wall Of Sound

ABOUT MINISTRY

Born in 1981 in Chicago, MINISTRY has been the lifetime passion project of founder Al Jourgensen, considered to be the pioneer of industrial music. In its early days, MINISTRY was identifiable by its heavy synth-pop material in line with the new sounds and technology that were being developed in the ‘80s. MINISTRY’s output began with four 12” singles on Wax Trax! Records in 1981 before the first LP With Sympathyin 1983 via Arista Records. As time progressed however, so did MINISTRY, quickly developing a harsher, and more stylized sound that the band soon became infamous for on seminal albums Twitch (1986), “The Land of Rape and Honey”(1988), and The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste (1989). With the release of Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and The Way to Suck Eggs(1992), MINISTRY hit an all-time high in the mainstream musical realm and received its first Grammy nomination. In total, Ministry has been nominated for a Grammy award six times. Eight more albums would follow before an indefinite break in 2013, only to be unearthed again in 2018 with AmeriKKKant, continuing to reflect Jourgensen’s views on the frightening state of society and politics. Today, MINISTRY continues touring and recording with the brand-new 15th studio album Moral Hygieneto be released October 1st.

Country artist, Tania Murray, releases single & music video for debut track, Follow Me Down to the River

Follow Me Down to the River is the debut single from Australian country singer/songwriter, Tania Murray, out now and distributed through Social Family Records.

Written by Murray and produced, engineered and mixed by multi-award-winning producer, Matt Fell (LoveHZ studios), Follow Me Down to the River is a dark country/outlaw sound that takes you down to the muddy waterside, through a tale of seduction and devilish ways. Bursting out the gate with mean guitars and a stomping beat, Murray’s voice calls out to be answered by twanging banjos and ukuleles that bring cheer to the track.

The song features Murray on acoustic guitar, lead and backing vocals, Matt Fell on bass, guitars, banjo, ukulele, papoose, keyboards, and percussion, Miles Thomas on drums, Nardia Drayton on the bridge bv’s and was mastered by William Bowden at King Willy Sound.

The official music video, also out now, was shot and produced by Jesse Anderson of Klik Productions (and this season of The Block), and filmed at Myuna Bay and Toronto (Lake Macquarie), in early August, just prior to the region going into lockdown.  

From recording the song at Love Hz through to filming the video clip, timing has been the charm for this outstanding debut single.

ABOUT TANIA MURRAY

Growing up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Tania Murray was raised in an open and artistic environment by her mother Eva, a Polish refugee turned Author, and father Les Murray AM, the late SBS Sports Broadcaster, also a refugee from Hungary. 

At 15 years of age Tania, who was born deaf in her right ear, won Channel 10’s New Faces (pretending she was older than she was in order to qualify for the contest). In year 11 aged 17, the singer who is often likened to the voice of Karen Carpenter, traded her high school bag for a suitcase, becoming a full time musician performing throughout the world on European and local cruise ships.

Upon return to Sydney, Tania started to gain a following for her performances in tribute shows, in particular her portrayal of American rock soul blues artist Janis Joplin, in venues like The Basement, The Vanguard, Camelot Lounge as well as the Twilight at Taronga series. Simultaneously, Tania travelled throughout NSW performing as a soloist armed with acoustic guitar and relocated to Lake Macquarie near Newcastle.

Tania’s initial song writing success came from her indie rock duo Little Pleasures who earned number one ranking spot on Triple J’s Unearthed weekly countdown with ballsy track, Everytime I Hear Rammstein.

When Tania lost her father in 2017, her desire to perform and write music went down in flames. Like many, the covid lockdown stirred the pot of creative juices and country songs were written to then be recorded at Love Hz Studios in Sydney with prolific country music producer Matt Fell, who really brought out Tania’s husky vocals. Growing up on a strict diet of Cat Stevens and Simon & Garfunkel, it’s not surprising to hear a lot of folk in Tania’s songs, her tracks always full of harmonies and heavy backing vocals.

Superlove – Unveil New Single ‘Save Yourselves’ And Accompanying Music Video

Bristol’s Superlove has released another brand new single, ‘Save Yourselves’. Born at a time when the country was in turmoil with UK politics and social media proved itself once more to be an intense platform to be consumed within, singer Jacob felt he was being bombarded with too much information, too many opinions, not enough fact and it became a sea of confusion. 

“This song was just trying to express some frustration in feeling so overwhelmed by everything we watch, read online and see on TV”, says Jacob. “Writing ‘Save Yourselves’ also had us thinking, what would we do if everything absolutely went to shit? I like to think we would both just go and sit in a forest, out the way of everything with a fire going and just laugh at what a state we got ourselves into. We’re honestly so excited this song is actually coming out as I remember listening to the demo over and over again thinking oh my god this song is so addictive to listen to haha, we hope people feel the same!”

Previous singles have seen support from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Rock Sound (UK), AAA Backstage, HEAVY Mag, Music Feeds, Something You Said, Milky and Australian community radio.

Save Yourselves’ is available worldwide now, via Rude Records

Sixx A.M. Release Video For ‘The First 21’. Nikki Sixx’s New Memoir, The First 21 & ‘Hits’ Album Coming In October

Sixx:A.M. has unveiled their new single “The First 21” from their upcoming compilation album Sixx:A.M. HITS via Better Noise Music

The album is a retrospective celebration of the iconic band’s biggest hits and fan-favorite songs, which will also include five unheard tracks and mixes, marking the band's first official album with new material since 2016. As the new companion track founding member Nikki Sixx’s new memoir of the same name, “The First 21” looks back nostalgically at the moments where we discovered music, ourselves, and our dreams. 

The compilation is available for pre-order and pre-save now across platforms now https://sixxam.ffm.to/hits 

Inspired by the highly-anticipated release of iconic music legend Nikki Sixx’s new memoir  THE FIRST 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx (Hachette Books; 10/19/21; $30; ISBN: 9780306923708)Sixx:A.M. members James MichaelDj Ashba, and Sixx are releasing HITS as a companion piece to the upcoming book. With a throwback to the band’s more formative years, “The First 21” captures the captivating content of the memoir for fans. After earning 21 years of sobriety, founding member of Mötley Crüe and Sixx:A.M. Nikki Sixx is still incredibly passionate about his craft and transparent about his life in rock and roll. Now a three-time New York Times best-selling author, Sixx tells the inspirational story of how Frank Feranna became Nikki Sixx in his first 21 years of life. Combining the work of a writer and a musician to offer multi-layered pieces of art, Sixx:A.M. previously released The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, which acted as a companion piece to Sixx’s best-selling memoir The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, introducing the concept of a book soundtrack into popular culture in 2007. 

Both the book and the album became instant successes upon release, with the book landing on the New York Times-best seller list in its first week, selling out in bookstores around the U.S. At the same time, the album spawned the #1 single Life Is Beautiful,” while simultaneously receiving critical acclaim and eventually achieving Gold certification in the U.S. IGN praised its effectiveness as a concept album, writing, “[It’s] not really an album but rather a musical book. It is almost impossible to recommend any specific songs over others.” Expanding this artistic signature move, The First 21 will now get its own soundtrack with the forthcoming HITS album.

Celebrating their catalogue on Spotify, the band revealed a new “Sixx:A.M. 101 Playlist.”  The playlist offers new and old fans a comprehensive collection of the band’s acclaimed catalogue.
Stream it HERE.

Nikki Sixx also curated a companion playlist to his book called  “Nikki Sixx’s First 21 Playlist”  which features the soundtrack to his formative years and is available for streaming HERE.
