Monday Motivation: New singles to keep you going

Here is our Monday Motivation playlist of some of our favourite new singles released over the last week!

The Crooked 45 – Voices on the Radio

Brit rockers The Crooked 45 released their new single Voices on the Radio. The band say: In the song we discuss the state of the media in the Western world – whilst people are distracted by celebrities and reality TV shows the West are causing atrocities across parts of the globe for financial gain. The leaders of the Western world use some media outlets as a mouth piece for politicians often to incite a ‘culture of fear’ which then can be used to get the public’s support and backing for these atrocities. In the video for ‘Voices On The Radio’ the people who come into contact with the TV and radio-waves become poisoned and sick. We hope this clearly compliments the song and the lyrics.”

Thornhill – Where We Go When We Die

The latest single to come from the anticipated debut album The Dark PoolThornhill have revealed Where We Go When We Die.

Vocalist Jacob Charlton said: “This song is not purely about whether religions and idols are real, or if there is anything after death, but more the fact that we try to fast track our lives to get to that ‘paradise’ more than we spend realising that we live in it.

“It’s more about killing our paradise (earth) now with hopes of finding another one or just shrugging it off to let future generations solve when it could truly become unsolvable.”

Chapel – Friends

Chapel‘s new single Friends is out now!

Carter Hardin said: “In your 20s, it’s easy to get caught up in the ambitions you have for your life. I realised I was making excuses and bailing on a lot of people, not holding up my end of relationships. ‘Friends’ is an apology, because at the end of the day, no dreams are worth having if you don’t have people there with you.” 

Dream State – Twenty Letters

Vocalist CJ Gilpin explains in depth about Twenty Letters. “Twenty Letters is one of my favourite tracks from Primrose Path.

“It was about a time in my life where it was a make or break moment. Society’s standardised ways of living were crippling; I was constantly carrying the pain of others around me and I started to face the shadow aspects to my own personality and felt trapped and tormented by my own mind. I sat in my room in the dark and I just cried and broke down. I felt so alone and all my pain rose to the surface and I had to face it all head on, rather than run from it like I always had by self-medicating.”

“The urge to write had overcome me and felt that what I would write was either going to say goodbye or ease some pain in some way but I knew that night I would do things differently this time. As I started to write, I flooded pages with all the things that were hurting me and my lack of understanding of it all, but shortly after I purged my pain, hope would follow and conquer it. It was cathartic doing it that way. I could still feel the weight on my chest and stomach and I just suddenly had enough of myself. I could not continue living this way. I cannot not let my pain as well as others keep drowning me like this. I’m so grateful for that night because I was able to go through this breakdown alone and without drink or drugs. I stared at my monster in the mirror I made friends with it, I understood it. I felt completely undone by everything and nothing could hurt me again. I had learnt that in order for my soul to change, I must learn and face the shadow aspects to my personality and learn from them, rather than hiding from them. Light has illuminated the way for me and the darkness has shaped it. I’m friends with both and I understand its purpose now. I ended the night holding those letters of mine close and laid there grateful and ready for whatever happens next.”

Uneven Structure – Everyman

Uneven Structure‘s new single Everyman has a video filmed at Euroblast festival. The track is the final single to be released before album Paragon is unleashed to the world.

POLY-MATH – Sensors In Everything

Sensors In Everything is the first single for POLY-MATH with their new keyboardist Josh Gesner.

It is also a teaser of their new EP which is expected sometime next year. The single will be available digitally on November 8.

Like Moths To Flames – Smoke and Mirrors

Like Moths To Flames vocalist Chris Roetter said of new single Smoke and Mirrors: “Very excited to release our second single! I think this kind of picks up where ‘Nowhere Left To Sink’ left off.

“Capturing the same vibe for me lyrically it’s about the inner struggles of dealing with mental hurdles and obstacles that feel unavoidable, while ultimately being at fault. The song is a great blend of old and new Moths, capturing a lot of the old sound while still showcasing some of the other elements we are trying to implement within the music.”

Waterparks – Easy To Hate

Following the release of their third album FandomWaterparks have revealed new single Easy To Hate.

The video was directed by band-member Awsten Knight.

Ice Nine Kills – Your Number’s Up

Inspired by Scream the movie, Ice Nine Kills have revealed Your Number’s Up! The track is taken from The Silver Scream: Final Cut!

Vocalist and horror fan Spencer Charnas says of the tribute to the late Wes Craven: “The bloody mark that Wes Craven’s SCREAM left on the horror genre cannot be overstated.

 “I saw the movie in theaters when I was 11, but I can remember the experience as if it were yesterday. Although I had already been a big fan of slashers, this was the first time I had ever seen one on the big screen. I was hooked from the opening sequence and watched in awe at the devilishly sharp self-referential dialogue that cut through the screen like a knife. The film single handedly revitalized the slasher/horror movie craze in ’90s, and it will forever remain a crucial figure in the genre. The time has come for us to give my favorite film the INK-horror treatment it deserves, and I couldn’t be more excited for the world to experience ‘Your Number’s Up.'”
