Make Them Suffer are truly incredible songwriters and “Fireworks” proves that point. The song, off the band’s new record Worlds Apart which comes out July 28 on Rise Records, masterfully blends heavy vocals and eerie guitars with beautiful melodies. This leads to a sense of calm and acceptance while at the same time revealing a type of suffering.
If you’re looking for a new hardcore band to champion, look no farther than Church Tongue. Their new record Heart Failure is both brash and deeply personal, which leads us to their new music video for the third track on the record, “Acid Jesus.” Check it out below!
Vesta Collide‘s new record, New Obsession, is one that metalcore fans (we included) are absolutely enamored with. The band just premiered a music video for the third track on the record, “I Can’t Sleep.” You can check out the brand new music video, along with a brief explanation of it by the band, right here!
Why did you choose to do a music video for “I Can’t Sleep”?
We chose to do a video for “I Can’t Sleep” because we feel it’s a very strong song and a good representation of what to expect from New Obsession.
What do you hope fans get out of the song?
We hope that fans can relate to the song in someway, as it is lyrically universal. It’s dark and something everyone can relate to at some point in their lives because there is always a point where you don’t feel good enough or want something that you can’t have.
What’s the most meaningful lyric in this song (to you) and why?
The most meaningful lyric from “I Can’t Sleep” to me is a very simple line that asks, “Am I dead to you?” Because sometimes you just feel like a ghost to the ones that mean everything to you.
UK metal band While She Sleeps broke out big time when they released their 2015 full-length, Brainwashed. By the sound of their recently released music videos for new album You Are We – due out April 27th via Sharptone Records – WSS are about to get even bigger. The band’s newest single, “Silence Speaks,” carries the band’s heartfelt yet extremely aggressive style to new peaks. It also features Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon, which is arguably the best thing Sykes has done for metal since Sempiternal. Check out the new music video for this roaring single and don’t forget to check out some of the band’s other videos from their upcoming album, You Are We.

If you’re a sucker (like we are) for horror, screamo and punk, you’ve got to check out One Last Shot. The Syracuse, NY band have just released a gothic styled music video for their brand new single, “Leather & Fangs.” The song comes to you off of their upcoming full-length, The Death of a Poet & All of His Friends, which is to be released on March 31st, 2017. If you’re nostalgic for the glory days of screamo, when watching “Steven’s Untitled Rock Show” on FUSE was an everyday ritual and the band Aiden was taking over, you’re guaranteed to have fun with One Last Shot.
From their record Lionheart comes Hollow Bones‘s music video for the track “I Watched the Snow Fall and Bury Your Bones.” The New York melodic hardcore band use stark silhouettes overlayed with a snowy forest for this atmospheric song. In a track-by-track of the record that the band did with us, the members revealed that not only is it one of their absolute favorite tracks on the record, but the title also comes from the extremely popular Game Of Thrones.
The pop hit “Closer” by The Chainsmokers (ft. Halsey) has taken over the nation and even inspired a series of memes because of how viral it’s gone. New York rock band In Loving Memory just put a heavy spin on the song and it’s just as if not more addicting than the original. Check out the music video for the song below and give the rest of In Loving Memory’s discography a listen!

North Carolina hardcore outfit Dwell released their latest album, Innate, via Blood & Ink Records on September 9th. We’ve teamed up with them to bring you their roaring new music video for “A Lie In Futility,” and we love it because it’s awesomely gruesome and heavy as hell.
From the band:
“‘A Lie In Futility’ is about if you believe the world is meaningless, then life will seem as if the world is crumbling and only feeds into that lie your cosmos consumes. If the world was meaningless, then the logic you used to justify your belief becomes meaningless also. The making of this video was an amazing experience and it was a pleasure working with Josh. We wanted the video itself to be somewhat dark and eerie and I think Josh [Jardim] did exactly what we were looking for. I hope everyone enjoys the video as much as we do.”

We Came As Romans have released their first single since their self-titled record and it gets back to the heavier WCAR many fans missed the last time around. While it’s still got Kyle Pavone’s clean vocals thrown in and is not the heaviest track of their career, it endeavors to set the tone for the next, as yet unannounced, record.
In our last interview with We Came As Romans, the band admitted that there were things that they tried with their most recent record that did not end up being successful and they were eager to return to their roots. The new song, “Wasted Age,” is the first that the band have released on new label Sharptone Records and without drummer Eric Choi.
The band had this to say about the new song:
“When we got together and wrote ‘Wasted Age,’ we realized it was a snapshot of what we‘ve been through and are still going through as a band,” WCAR said about the song. “We are eager to play this every night on the Unbreakable Tour with Parkway Drive. This one is for our fans who continue to support us. Thank you.”
And of Choi’s departure:
“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the 10 years we’ve spent with Eric in this band and the countless memories we’ve made together. He is an extremely talented musician and a great person, but life happens andwe‘re all torn in different ways as we grow older. Eric has chose to pursue a different future than we have, and as someone we respect and deeply care for,we need to allow him to live his life. The band will continue on and Eric will be successful in whatever he chooses to do and we only wish him the best.”
Set to release their new record Your World Won’t Listen on September 9th via Hopeless Records, Cruel Hand have debuted a new music video for their new single off the record, “Decompose.” It’s heavy, it’s punky, and it’s catchy as hell. If you don’t pick up this record when it comes out, you’re missing out on a hell of a good time.
