Dallas-based technical metal outfit Baring Teeth have premiered their forthcoming sophomore full length, Ghost Chorus Among Old Ruins, over at Revolver. The record will officially be released next Tuesday, November 25th, via Willowtip Records and pre-orders can still be placed here. On the new disorienting record, vocalist/guitarist Andrew Hawkins comments:
“This album was a really difficult one to make. We pushed ourselves as songwriters and as musicians, but I think the extra focus we placed on crafting a complete, focused album really paid off. Every song plays into the larger whole while still being brutal and catchy, and we wrote much more concertedly this time around. Our goal was to make an album that pushes the extremes of [debut full-length] Atrophy as far as possible, and we’re really happy with the result.”
If you cannot wait five more days to have your equilibrium wrecked, then stream the new record at this location.
New Hampshire screamo outfit Youth Funeral have premiered a new track from their forthcoming EP, See You When I See You, over at Brooklyn Vegan.

Ides of Gemini have premiered the new haunting, ritualistic video for their track “Seer of Circassia”, over at Noisey. Bassist/vocalist Sera Timms issued the following comments regarding the conceptual nature of the video:
“The concept of the album traces the symbolic-psychological breakdown of a character over ten days [‘Seer Of Circassia’ takes place on day four]. We’re working within the structures of psycho-spiritual alchemical transformation, utilizing Carl Jung’s school of analytical psychology. Essentially we have a story of the psychological conflict of opposing forces — yin-yang, male/female/dark light, etc. — each driven by desire. The masculine archetype in this story desires control and structure, while the feminine archetype desires recognition and equality as it has been repressed in the ‘Old World.’ Our protagonist is the Emperor, based creatively on the last Emperor of Constantinople, who represents the ego, masculine, solar consciousness along with control, structure, domination, force and power.”
Watch the video after the break and pick up a copy of Ides of Gemini’s new record, Old World New Wave, here.
The first new recording from Faith No More in 17 years, “Motherfucker”, can now be streamed a week before its officially release date. The 7″ will officially be released on November 28th as a part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday and will come paired with a J.G. Thirwell remix of the track. On the track, keyboardist Roddy Bottum comments:
“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherfucker,’ a song about accountability. Basically we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage. . .y’know, stuff like that.”
You can stream the track over at Rolling Stone now.
