Blood Youth – Spineless
Harrogate hardcorers Blood Youth unleash their new single Spineless! The track is lifted from forthcoming record Starve (February 22, Rude Records).
Frontman Kaya Tarsus says: “Spineless is about not being able to change your fucked up state of mind. No matter what we do or how much we change our appearance, it feels like we all have this inner darkness that eventually creeps back up. You have to accept that this state of mind is your reality and it can stay with you forever,”
“This was actually the first song that was written for Starve, it’s one of our favourites and it really defined the sound and mood of what was to come. We shot the video in a workshop with our good friend Zak Pinchin. Like the track, we wanted it all to be very dark, aggressive and claustrophobic. Almost like the setting for a Saw movie.
Zak has filmed nearly every video we have put out, he knows exactly what we want from our videos and once again we are really stoked with how this one has turned out!”
Jaret Reddick & Kelly Ogden – Here We Go
Bowling For Soup‘s Jaret Reddick and The Dollyrots’ Kelly Ogden have revealed the first single from their forthcoming collaboration Sittin In A Tree (March 22).

Jaret adds: “Here We Go” is definitely the song that made us both go, “Oh Shit! We are actually doing this thing!!” I started playing her the chorus, and Kelly started just singing “where we goin?…Don’t know what I’m doin!” And I was completely blown away…Haha….It was absolutely like NOTHING I had in mind for the song and it was perfect! I just don’t know how this song doesn’t put a pep in your step!”.

Pronoun – Stay

“This song started out as a love song but I threw it away when I started writing There’s no one new around you, Years later I picked it back up and started over.” reveals pronoun, “It basically walks through the moment that a break up occurs: staring at the ceiling, pacing around the room, hearing the clocks count the seconds, the only thing that reminds you time isn’t standing still. In this case, it was something I was expecting, and had already began to process but still in that moment found myself in the strange mixture of an array of emotions but also lack there of and apathy.”

Frontman Luke Bentham says of the chaotic video: “I genuinely thought the police would be called as we rampaged through our town that day. Smoking cars, trespassing and general mischief are all bound to raise the attention of the police. But hey, is it really a music video if there’s no threat of law enforcement?”
Of Mice & Men – How To Survive
US metalcorers Of Mice & Men are back with a brand new single How To Survive! The track is the first product of the band’s latest studio sessions.
Vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley explains: “‘How to Survive’ is an anthem for those who have been the receiving end of unmerited and targeted hatred and abuse. It’s for the kid who was bullied, beat up, and ignored in school. It’s for the teenager who was told that they’ll never amount to anything and that their thoughts, feelings, and opinions don’t matter to the world. It’s for the person who has been told that they’re worthless, useless, or not good enough, time and time again. It’s for the person who’s repeatedly been targeted by those who only seek to tear others around them down.”
He further stated, “This song is for them. This song is for me. I am them, and I’m still standing. So, turn it up. Feel the rage. If you, too, are that person, you will know it well, and it will greet you like an old friend.”
