An ode to the freedom of life & love & music is Flounder Warehouses most recent endeavor with their music video, “Better Now.”

The fun loving band has a fun loving track, one that takes on the challenges of happiness, of pursuing something you love no matter what - and we can’t stop listening. The jazz infused pop track is an effortless listen which makes it easy to add to any playlist you’ve got going right now.

Check out the fiery tune devoted to life itself down below!

About the track, the band said, “This video is completely absurd --- a series of scenes in which I have the time of my life while doing silly things. At one point I dance with an enormous rubber ducky on the beach. It was really fun. The project came together when I was talking to my brother, Alex, on the phone and he said, "Let's do another music video." I had no idea about what, and I hadn't written a song in a year. So the prompt he gave me was: "Write a summer song that doesn't use the word 'just.'"

Turns out, I use "just" a lot in my songs. So that part was challenging. The rest was natural. It's the second video I've collaborated on with my brother, who is the videographer and director -- it's really special bringing our passions together into these projects. After watching this video, I hope people feel inspired to be themselves, spread good vibes always, and choose to live out their dreams no matter what.”

We feel pretty good, what about you? Check out the music video & spread some love with Flounder Warehouse! We’ve got their social media links down below!

King Shelter Release Music Video

King Shelter, an Orange County-based “salad rock” band, has just released a new music video for their single “Preoccupy,” a song about the dissection of American values set to a video about the California junkrat nightlife. The video was directed by Connor Buss of Foreword Films, Produced by Broken Co., and Edited by Jose Ordonez.

King Shelter's Taylor Hecocks describes the point of the song: "What are we trying to gain? Why do we keep doing these things? Why are we intentionally hurting other individuals for a temporary preoccupation? But most importantly, how can we be better? Because we CAN do better, we just have to try,” he says. “The 'Preoccupy' music video is an observation and an introduction to the scum and slime punks of LA. We exist.”

You can watch the video and check it our for for yourself below and get acquainted with the “salad rock” style, a mashing of California-based rock genres!

King Shelter's whole thesis is that no one person is more important than anyone else, especially in this artistical realm. They aim to make music that stands alongside the people listening, not above them. Hecocks states: “If we want things to be better, then we have to do it. Change happens by people doing things, by people disregarding classes and associations. I want people to see what is important. People are important, art is important, output is important, YOU ARE IMPORTANT."

Art D'Ecco Shares New Music Video

Today, Art d'Ecco shares the "She So Hot" music video and announces his debut album, Day Fevers – available September 9th via YourFace Records. Day Fevers is currently available for pre-order on iTunes, with instant downloads of "She So Hot" and "The Deal" upon purchase. Check out the video here.


The "She So Hot" music video was premiered this morning on Pure Volume. The suspenseful video sees a woman's enduring fight to escape a kidnapping duo in the middle of the British Columbian wilderness. The gory visuals against the beautiful scenery perfectly compliment the bright but gritty glam rock inspired single. All feels reminiscent of a Quentin Tarantino film. 

Art d'Ecco's story is anything but usual. After a period of personal turmoil, d'Ecco escaped the city life and relocated to the Gulf Islands of British Columbia to embark on a journey of much needed soul searching and personal rediscovery. He spent three years in relative seclusion on the island retooling, writing, and overcoming the obstacles of isolation and regret.

With Day Fevers, d'Ecco peers through a lens of nostalgia with nods to glam rock, classic rock n roll, krautrock, spaghetti westerns, and new wave psychedelia. He sought to deliver an album across different genres with himself as the sonic rug that ties it all together, or rather a playlist. Starting with "Sunrise" and closing with "Sunset," Day Fevers travels through themes of desire, isolation, nostalgia, and personal discovery, taking listeners through all the lows and the highs.

"Formed during the three year period I spent in isolation, tucked away in a cabin on one of the Gulf Islands in British Columbia. I'd fled a bad scene in Vancouver – my life was spinning out of control and I needed a refresh. I was burnt out and over playing music. The scene. The debauchery. I was emotionally hollowed out. Eventually, I discovered that feelings of alienation and desire were something I could channel into music. I've always been a man of extremes, so it was in this escape that I rediscovered myself as an artist. These songs came from months of writing and from being alone." - Art d'Ecco

New Music Video From Will Wood & The Tapeworms

New Jersey natives, Will Wood & The Tapeworms, have released a brand new, unconventional music video!

It is a short film entitled, “Mr. Capgras Encounters a Secondhand Vanity: Tulpamancer's Prosopagnosia as Direct Result of Trauma to the Fusiform Gyrus.” The video is directed by Will Wood and Adam Nawrot. The song is the new single off of their upcoming album Self-ish, due out on August 23rd! 

The video premiered over on Fangoria!

Wood had this to say about the filming of the video: “The process of shooting this music video was a lot like the content. It was euphoria and dysphoria. Everyone took their clothes off, even when not filming. We all kissed and held each other and said, ‘I love you,’ talking of liberation and the freedom we felt in those moments. We were knee-deep in hedonism and histrionics, ego and one-ness. We were the yin and yang of self-love and free love. All the most beautiful things in this world seem paradoxical, like narcissism and humility, dress-up and nudity, black and white. All one. And that’s what makes the video honest — the fact that we used our vulnerability as our vanity. We worshiped our flaws and revered our imperfections.” 

Self-ish will feature guest appearances from Alex Nauth of Foxy Shazam/The Skulx, and Matt Olsson of Frnkiero and the Cellabration plays drums for the album. 

Stay tuned for more info about Self-ish. Make sure to follow Will Wood & The Tapeworms on their social media sites, available here:

Alteras Releases New Music Video via Revival Recordings

 

Recently, Ohio hard rock/metal quintet Alteras signed to Revivalist Recordings (which is owned by none other than Shawn Milke of post-hardcore band Alesana), and put out a music video for “Could Ever Love”, their first single off their label-debut album Grief.

Alteras, who have been around since 2011, have been building the buzz since the release of their 2015 Shapeshifter EP, and haven’t lost momentum since. The music video was directed by Michele Dulay of Aspire|Immerse, and is viewable below. 

Alteras is composed of Jake Clasen on vocals, Jordan Wooley on guitar and vocals, Mike Dulay on guitar, Zack Orr on bass, and Seth Donchess on drums. Together, they play a style that they deem to be metal, but is closer to a hard rock/post-hardcore sound. Regardless, the band aims to touch the hearts of listeners who need their message most. Therefore, the concept of “Could Ever Love” becomes more of a personal relation between the listener and the music. Vocalist Clasen of the single said:

‘Could Ever Love’ hits some of the most relatable grieving points and is definitely one of our favorites on the album.” In this way, they’re certainly setting the bar high for themselves, and they appear poised and eager to deliver to their fans. Grief will be released on August 5th; pre-order bundles are already available on their MerchNow

It is their burning will that Shawn Milke says has him behind Alteras. As he remarks, “The band has a conceptual, passionate, and creative vision that couples perfectly with the culture and community that we [at Revivalist] are building. We thank Alteras for inviting us along on their journey.”

All this comes on the heels of a tour announcement, which will see Alteras on tour with the Hook-approved Roots Like Mountains, along with the Detroit post-hardcore band Adventurer. Check out the dates below.

Be sure to follow Alteras on their various social media, check out their first EP via iTunes, and take a look-see at their awesome pre-order bundles. As always, stay tuned for more of the latest and greatest music news!
