Darkest Hour have released some short teaser clips of new music from within the great realms of Studio-Land. These clips offer a small insight into the awesome riffage to come and can be found on the band’s Facebook page here and here. Follow the links to check them out. The band’s currently untitled eighth studio album is slated to be released sometime next year through Sumerian Records.
That’s right, ANOTHER new Stray From the Path song has been released. This is the third single they have released from their upcoming album, Rising Sun. Unfortunately, this is the weakest of the three. While the other two had something to offer, this one is just plain boring. The riffs were lazily written and there is really nothing distinct or memorable about the track. It’s a little disappointing, but I am sure the rest of the album will make up for it. Check it out below. I didn’t care for it but maybe you will.
The Acacia Strain are embarking on a new North American fall tour cleverly named the God Damn tour. Hardcore heroes, Terror, will be supporting them along with Stray From the Path and Harm’s Way. Here are the tour dates that have been announced: Continue reading
Stray From the Path recently released a new song from their upcoming album Rising Sun. The song is called “Prey” and it features guest vocals from Norma Jean’s vocalist, Cory Brandan. The songs they have released from this album so far have been absolutely killer. I am looking forward to this release as it sounds quite promising. Check it out below!

This was the first official day of SXSW and what better way to start it than with a free Brooklyn Vegan showcase. The original plan was to get up early enough to catch Deafheaven but things don’t always go to plan. Due to waking up late and ridiculous traffic I knew I was going to miss Deafheaven but thought I would reach Emos in time for The Secret.
After several bad parking decisions and wading through a tens of thousands of people I make it to Emos. As I walk through the door The Secret finishes their last song. Fuck, this turns out to be one of the biggest bummers of SXSW. I was really excited to catch The Secret on their first US tour but ended up missing all their performances.
