“Live A Lie” is about the fake world we sometimes put ourselves in just to make a relationship that isn’t good for us work,” says guitarist Mike Keller.
LFTF are currently wrapping up their tour with Failure Anthem and will hit the road again in January. If you like what you hear, be sure to catch them live!

Miami-based metalcore band Acaedia have partnered with us to bring you their newest single, “Risktaker”! Following their previous EP, Dawning, “Risktaker” is a standalone single to keep fans hyped as they work on writing a new EP for 2017. The new song was mixed and mastered by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Wage War, Neck Deep), and if this is the first you’re hearing of these guys, you’ll definitely want to hear more after this. You can also watch their music video for “Rotten” here.
Melodic hardcore quintet Hollow Bones are set to release their debut album, Lionheart, on May 27th. They’ve already shared Part 1 of the album’s track-by-track with their fans, but they’ve teamed up with the HXC Magazine team to bring you Part 2!
Greaver, a five-piece posthardcore outfit from North Carolina, have just announced that their debut record, The Faun, will be released April 29th via Cardigan Records. Along with the announcement comes the premiere of the intense and alluring “A Poisoned Well,” the second track off the album.
In anticipation of their new album Long Live, Atreyu have released yet another single. Titled “Start To Break,” the new song sounds a lot like Atreyu from those beloved The Curse days. Complete with guitar solo and those demonic whisperings they do so well, it brings a little 2004 to 2015. Check it out and be sure to get the full album when it comes out September 18th via Spinefarm Records.
North Carolina natives Between The Buried And Me have released the second single from their upcoming album Coma Ecliptic. The song, entitled “Famine Wolves” is exemplary of BTBAM’s iconic and unique sound. It is nearly seven minutes of the band’s signature shredding, vicious vocals, and off-kilter beats that keep your mind and ears on their toes.
Tommy Rogers’s vocal ability is showcased in this track amongst moments of intense eeriness and theatrics, most notably around the 4 minute mark. The last minute of the song features the choice guitar stylings that fans of BTBAM have come to expect and treasure. With each new song from the band we anticipate having our faces melted off, and this progressive metal opera does not disappoint.
Coma Ecliptic will be released on July 7th through Metal Blade Records. The band will also be promoting their new album on tour with Animals As Leaders and The Contortionist. Check out the dates below to see when the Coma Ecliptic Tour is coming to your town and stream “Famine Wolves” by heading over to Metal Injection.

Remember back in the day when you went to birthday parties laden with adult supervision, store-bought birthday cake, and awful entertainment? Senses Fail does, which is why they decided to demolish the innocence of childhood festivities in the music video for their new single “The Importance of the Moment of Death.” There’s a drunken clown, firearms, and parents paying more attention to cocaine than their kids; the opposite of what a ten-year-old’s party should be. It looks so wrong, but feels so right.
Following their last album, Renacer (2013), this new single (which premiered on Noisey) is heavy and reflective of the style that Senses Fail has recently adopted. The riffs are raw, there is little to no clean singing, and it is clear that their sound has changed from the days of Let it Enfold You (2004) and The Fire (2010). Regardless of how SF fans feel about the band’s new sound, you can’t deny that the video for the single is fun, taking the purity of youth and smashing it to bits.
Grab Senses Fail’s new album Pull The Thorns From Your Heart when it’s released June 30th, and catch them at Warped Tour when it comes to your town this summer. Bring your raw meat-filled piñatas, it’s going to be a grand old time.

As if to redefine the word “mindfuck,” Eskimo Callboy explode onto 2015 with the video for the title track of their upcoming album, Crystals. Their previous record, We Are The Mess, established the German electrocore outfit as a confusing entanglement of ravaging hardcore, precise instrumentation, and scandalous lyricism. While the band seem to still be clinging to a similar type of danceable heaviness for “Crystals,” the music video delivers some unexpectedly stunning moments uncharacteristically meaningful for Eskimo. This music video is defined by the brilliant and heavily stylized melding of camp and near high art. Between the outrageously glamorous costuming, the kitschy dangling hearts, and the monochromatic religious symbolism and iconography, the “Crystals” video could almost pass more for a modern art installation than anything. Not to mention, the song itself is devastatingly catchy.
Crystals is due to be released March 6th on Redfield Records / Earache Records (UK/US).
