Fresh off their North American tour with Dragonette and Miami Horror, Vancouver Trio, DiRTY RADiO have collaborated with Joseph Carlin and Transfixion Films (Ta-Ku to Lana DelRey), to bring us the Official Video for their latest single “Numbers.”
After dropping their lead single “Equal Parts,” that features Silent Planet vocalist Garrett Russel, metalcore outfit Fault Lines has released their Such Is Life EP.
“This EP is a collection of songs that open up a dialogue about various feelings or things that we as humans have to deal with in our lives, that aren’t exactly positive. We didn’t want to sugar-coat the content so a lot of it comes off as cynical or melancholy, but it’s honest which is what we were going for. The release deals with addiction, anxiety, fighting complacency and a few other subjects that are harsh realities of the world we live in. We hope that you find some solace in knowing that you are not alone in these issues and that you can get through it. That’s the main idea of this EP… You will get past it and move on, and it’s worth it to.” – Corey Pettit (Screamer)
