Borderlands Announce Debut LP & Music Video

Straight from Lisbon, Portugal, progressive metalcore masterminds Borderlands unveil a brand-spanking-new music video for the song “Children of the Sun”. This is the third song to be premiered off Voice of the Voiceless, their upcoming debut full length, which is set for release on June 10th. Check out the insane video below.

The band- which consists of Rui Martins on vocals, Yuri José and Hugo Capelo on guitar, Cristóvão "Kiki" Monteiro on the drums, and Gonçalo Beco on bass- leaves listeners with extremely high expectations for the upcoming release. With the single, the quintet displays an ability to compose complex music that weaves gripping melodies into a tightly structured, pummeling assault. The song features a willingness to go wild tempo-wise while still sounding extremely on-beat, a la Massachusetts technical deathcore giants Within The Ruins, though they ultimately exhibit a feel that is very akin to the likes of metalcore compatriots Northlane, Erra, and even Oceans Ate Alaska.

Voice Of The Voiceless Track List:
1.    Continuum
2.    Children Of The Storm (feat. Nelson Robello from The Voynich Code)
3.    Release Yourself
4.    Lineage
5.    Limitless
6.    Essencia
7.    Voice Of The Voiceless
8.    The Curse (feat. Anger from Above The Hate)
9.    Children Of The Sun

With only a few singles and a three-and-a-half-year-old EP to their name, Borderlands is too good of a band not to expand its reach beyond Europe with this new album. Voice of the Voiceless sounds more polished and professional than their last efforts thanks to the mixing and mastering done by Nicolas Delestrade, who has worked with Betraying The Martyrs and Novelists in the past.

Says vocalist Rui Martins of the new album: “This album is definitely stepping up our game, we’ve put a lot of effort into this and hope that everyone enjoys it and loves it as much as we do.”

Borderlands are working hard and are well on their way to achieving greatness because of it.

With a set album release date on the horizon, now is the time to follow their social media and stay up-to-date with the latest happenings of this band. You can pre-order the new album, as well as download their old music, right here. Stay tuned!

Suit Of Lights Share New Single

Suit of Lights recently shared “Break Open the Head,” their first track off of upcoming album Break Open the Head - expected out June 6, 2016.

Suit of Lights is a genre-defying four piece band created in 2003 by Joe Darone, a former member of The Fiendz and The Rosenbergs. Unsatisfied with creative standstill, SOL tastefully blends bits of 60's pop, punk, progressive rock, metal, jazz, and baroque pop into their music, ensuring each new Suit of Lights album will be a unique, unexplored aural journey.

Darone says, “Some bands go for 30 years with one sound, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But that’s boring to me.” 

Darone accessed a love for art and music at an early age. Since then, his drumming has taken him places like CBGB to The Fillmore, from opening for The Ramones with The Fiendz, to touring with Echo & The Bunnymen with The Rosenbergs. Darone is also a visual artist, and has produced artwork for Madonna, Agnostic Front, and Van Halen under the pseudonym Zeckle. Currently, he’s creating the album art for all Suit of Lights releases.

Break Open the Head follows Shine On Forever, which reached critical acclaim and was included in "Top Albums of the Year" lists by Brooklyn's The Big Takeover and the UK's Instrumental.

Produced by Tim 'Rumblefish' Gilles, Break Open the Head is an energetic leap forward, seeming dense and challenging, yet very accessible and catchy. The music is an expression of psychic upheaval through art, embodying music’s exceptional ability of transporting listeners to a higher consciousness.

"Break Open The Head," is streaming off of Bandcamp, so check it out!

The lyrics say it all: “honor your higher self.”

Frameworks Announce New Album With Deathwish

In my opinion, Deathwish Records is currently one of the coolest labels! Bringing us acts like Code Orange, Modern Life Is War, and Ceremony are now excited to bring us a band called Frameworks! 

Frameworks just announced their sophomore album, Smother, and they also recently released a single off of the album called “Tangled," and I can tell you right now, it is so good! This is an amazing and most fitting definition for alternative rock because it takes an experimental approach to writing, while keeping emotional value in how it is delivered.  

Check it out below!


The song is about overthinking and how it can dampen the outcome of things done throughout life. Based on this song, as well as the older albums Frameworks has released, we are in for a real treat, and it makes me extremely happy to that hear another great album by a wonderful band being released on Deathwish! 

Keep an eye out for the new tunes, as it’s going to be available digitally, and physically on June 16th! If you would like to take your ears on a journey, the link to their bandcamp where you can listen to the single and pre-order the album for only 8 bucks (what a deal!!).

TK The Architect Reveals New Album

unnamed (1).png

On April 29, 2016, New York, lyricist and multi-instrumentalist TK The Architect celebrates his first and independently released alternative hip-hop & R&B album, Blue Season, with a show at Bar Matchless alongside Feather+Eyes, Hunter and Wolfe, and Light Craft and accompanied by his supporting band, The Get Back Kids. 

The LP fluidly fuses the cacophonous delivery of TK The Architect’s rap verses with under-toning smooth symphonic soulful grooves and live instrumentation, primarily played by himself.  It is also a direct reflection of himself, mirroring his upbringing, music history, and surroundings. Growing up in a bilingual home in New York, TK (born Zach Takayuki Zanghi) was raised by his Japanese mother and Italian father. This mixture of cultures became an essential aspect of his identity and his ability to bridge words was crucial to the development of some of his lyrics. His musical background also played a significant role in both the creation of Blue Season and in the development of himself as an artist. He’s been an instrumentalist since the age of nine and has toured as a guitar tech/stage manage where he adopted the name TK, an abbreviation of his middle name. 

Blue Season does not encompass all of his productivity, though. After touring, he earned a dual degree while releasing several DIY projects, his most recent being Life in Stereo. He’s also founded CON TEMPLATE, a collective of artists, musicians, and other creatives. He advocates for youth talent in his neighborhood by arranging and booking festivals for them in the local community. 

Blue Season not only depicts TK’s full range or work ethic and artistic capability, it also reflects the most common human experiences by communicating his experiences through quality lyrics and reverberations. 

Track List
1.  Blue (Intro)
2. Result of the Fire
3. Shore Somewhere (Interlude) 
4. Water
5. Wait Up Slow Down
6. OGOGOG (Interlude)
7. Current Passing
8. Peace of Mind
9. If You Can
10. Blue (Reprise)




“I genuinely feel that no one could have made this record but me,” TK says, “This is the first time I found a way to connect everything I do, as a musician/producer and as an MC.”

Better Things Are Built By Legos Release Music Video

Alt-punk band, Better Things Are Built By Legos, have released a playful music video for their newest single, “Stick That In Your Juicebox and Sip It.” 

Better Things Are Built By Legos formed in early 2014 and consist of Brian LaClair and Brad Yandow on vocals and guitar, with Mark Weber on drums, and bassist Quintin Cardinal joined with the band in late 2014. 

The new song plays with the ongoing theme that the band pushes; keep moving forward, never lose hope, make yourself better. 

The lyrics, however important and heavy, are juxtaposed with a lighter tone in the video. LEGO figurine interpretations of the band members are waved around on charming sticks and placed into funny situations. 

Drummer Mark Weber says that "the meaning of the song changed from the beginning. Originally I wrote it as a way to get past some of my personal fears, but as I went through a tough situation in a relationship and it got applied to that song. Just because lyrically it’s somewhat open-ended and you can apply it to whatever bad thing is happening to you and use it. Honestly, any progress you make, any positive thing that happens, any little thing that makes you happy… you can use that as a means to move beyond whatever problem you’re facing." 

Check out the video below!

“Stick That In Your Juciebox and Sip It” is also available on Bandcamp for purchase!
