Monday Motivation playlist

Here we bring you some of our favourite new singles from the past couple of weeks to kick start your Monday!

Our Hollow Our Home – Burn It // Bury It

Southampton metallers Our Hollow Our Home have revealed their new single Burn It // Bury It.

The track, despite a similar lay out to last album In Moment // In Memory, is not a part of the record and is the first of bigger things to come!

Left Behind – Outside the Body

Vocalist Zach Hatfield says of Outside the Body: “I wrote that song thinking about how tiresome it is just to do basic tasks. Whether I’m overthinking the stress I’m going to have from work, or anxiety from talking to people, I get stuck in my head having the same thoughts over and over again. Sometimes I even zone out until someone says my name. I think about things I’m ashamed of that happened years ago. Things that really shouldn’t be as big of a deal as I make them to be but it’s hard to stop thinking the way I do. I have goals I set for myself whether that’s in music or my personal life, but this feeling of dread and a lack of inspiration keeps me from achieving a lot. Might just sound like I’m lazy but there’s a lot more going on in my head than just not being motivated.”

The track is the second to be taken from third album No One Goes To Heaven (November 15, Rise Records).

Nelson Can – I Used To Sleep Through Everything

Danish rockers Nelson Can have revealed their new single I Used To Sleep Through Everything. The track is taken from their forthcoming album, set for release in 2020.

Bassist Signe SigneSigne said:  “This song describes the feeling of hours disappearing like sand between your fingers as you yearn for a more carefree time when you didn’t feel so overwhelmed by deadlines and worries.”

Thousand Thoughts – Change

Thousand Thoughts have unleashed Change! The single also shows a new side to the band and introduces nu-metal artist Diago Jax!

Ethan Smith said: “A few years ago I made a demo of this song, but recently rewrote it with one of my best friends – a brand new artist – ‘Daigo Jax’, who has never released anything until today!”

Hawthorne Heights – The Perfect Way To Fall Apart (Lost)

Ohio rockers Hawthorne Heights reveal their alternate version of The Perfect Way to Fall Apart. The track is lifted from their forthcoming album Lost Frequencies (November 8, Pure Noise Records).

JT Woodruff said of covering themselves: “We’ve always been a fan of alternate versions. Since we were working on covers, we thought why not cover ourselves a little bit? It’s nice to hear what songs sound like in different arrangements, because all good songs stand alone in any style. It was a lot fun to rip this open and put it back together in a different way. Strip it back to a little skin and bones.”

Creeper – Born Cold

After a year away, Creeper are back with their new single Born Cold.

Frontman Will Ghould said:

“This song is the introduction of one of the more villainous characters from our new story. It was inspired by what the Thin White Duke was for David Bowie – a more selfish, narcissistic character.”

“CREEPER was always about theatrics and cinema; as much about the aesthetic as the music.

“So we took it to Hollywood and made it in the shadow of some of our favourite films, where some classic records have been made, and let it become something else. In ‘Born Cold’, you can hear the DNA of the band and listen to it be transformed with the addition of some of the new elements that we’ve added to the process.”

Angels & Airwaves – Kiss & Tell

Angels & Airwaves have released their new single Kiss & Tell.

“The beginning of the song is really an ode to The Beach Boys,” says vocalist/guitarist Tom DeLonge. “It opens with three-part harmonies to create an introduction with multi-dimensionality. We wanted to create a sound that had electronic elements right alongside classic rock and pop punk melodic structures.  Lyrically, this song is specifically about balancing on the edge of a razor blade. Doing something you’re not supposed to be doing, and although you might die while doing it, it’s still very much keeping you feeling alive.”
