If you didn’t get the memo when we covered the band’s debut single back in September, UK post-hardcore band Static Dress are one that needs to be on your radar. Packing huge hooks and THICC, nostalgic early-2000’s vibes, Static Dress are far more than a band merely wanting to ride the coattails of nostalgic days gone by – they’re the next big thing in the genre.
Just when you thought the post-hardcore genre was getting a bit stale, out of nowhere a Pacific Northwest band, Ghost Heart come out guns blazing with an explosive EP in Elegant Decay. How talented is this band, though?
If you’re like us, you’re probably eagerly anticipating a new Saosin record. While the post-hardcore veterans – who reunited with original vocalist Anthony Green for their 2016 record Along The Shadow – have bided their time with a new release, the relative quality of that record will likely make the band’s 4th full-length album more than worth it.
NYC’s Leeway need very little introduction to fans of heavy music. Whether you’re a fan of hardcore, metalcore, thrash metal, or hardcore punk, chances are you know of Leeway – or at least know their influence that lives on through more modern bands like Terror, Knocked Loose, and fellow cohorts Sick Of It All. Their debut album Born To Expire is a great example of this, still being lauded 30 years after its original debut.
It’s with that in mind that we’re excited to premiere Leeway’s new video for “Message To A Manchild”. The video is from the single off their most recent EP Tipping Point!, which dropped a few months ago via Upstate Records. A song that’s based on true events in the life of vocalist Eddie Sutton, the new video is certainly worth a watch, if only for the passion and anger you can really feel behind the lyrics.
