I Killed The Prom Queen Reveal New Album Details

Australian metalcore predecessors, I Killed The Prom Queen, have reunited and are thrilled to be back to share their first album in six years. Beloved is to be released on February 18 2014 on Epitaph Records in the US and February 14 in Australia.

Fans are invited to pre-order Beloved by visiting epitaphstore.com

By their own admission, I Killed The Prom Queen have endured a decidedly checkered past. Over the years the band saw multiple vocalist changes and other personnel exchanges, side-project sojourns and moonlighting in other bands, hiatuses and break-ups. Yet through it all, their musical output both live and on record has remained thoroughly inspired.

A brief history for the uninitiated: In 2000, I Killed The Prom Queen formed in Adelaine, Australia. In 2002, the band released their first EP Choose to Love, Live or Die with their original member lineup. From 2003-2005, the band released a split with like-minded locals Parkway Drive, put out various releases and experienced lineup changes. In 2006 with the release of their sophomore effort, Music For The Recently Deceased, the five-piece garnered local chart success and built a loyal worldwide following. However in 2008, mounting pressure and internal strife led to their premature demise. Yet, ironically, the hugely successful Say Goodbye Australian tour, which was to be the band’s swan song, gave them the impetus to continue.

For several years the band lay dormant as members went on to play in other bands. In 2011, I Killed The Prom Queen reclaimed their sound, style, history and legacy with an all new lineup and original member Jona Weinhofen who spent time with Bleeding Through and Bring Me The Horizon. Joined by new screamer Jamie Hope (ex- Red Shore), Shane O’Brien on drums (Deez Nuts), Kevin Cameron on guitar, Benjamin Coyte on bass and of course, Jona bringing vocal choruses, guitar and keyboard to the mix.

I Killed The Prom Queen entered the studio in 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden with Fredrik Nordström (Bring Me The Horizon, At The Gates, In Flames, Dimmu Brogir, Architects UK) to record Beloved, their much-anticipated third album of epic proportions.

“We’ve really extended ourselves,” says Jona Weinhofen, “But we’ve done it in a way where it’s tasteful and it makes sense with the music. It’s not like we’ve gone from sounding like a metalcore band to sounding like Dimmu Borgir. It still sounds very much like Prom Queen.”

Having overcome so much adversity during their 13-year existence, I Killed The Prom Queen have a fresh lease on life and a newfound desire to leave an indelible mark on the world stage.

Bring Me The Horizon Reveal New Video For Go To Hell For Heaven’s Sake

Bring Me The Horizon have revealed the new video for their latest single, Go To Hell For Heaven’s Sake which has been taken from their album, Sempiternal, released earlier this year on Epitaph Records. Go To Hell For Heaven’s Sake has been on the Active Rock Charts for 5 months.

The video was directed by Stuart Birchall and the live shots were filmed at the Church of St. Bartholomew the Great in Barbican, London.

As the title of the song suggests, Go To Hell For Heaven’s Sake seems to be riddled with frustration and fury towards a person that the narrator cannot stand. Percussionist Matthew Nicholls sets the foundations of the song with an introduction of interchanging single and double bass peddles which in turn opens door for Oliver Sykes’  aggressive yet controlled full throttled vocals. Each verse is supported by the walls of power chords and distorted electric guitar. The chorus of the song houses multiple layers of Syke’s voice reminiscent of At The Drive In.

Go To Hell For Heaven’s Sake is a full bodied, solid track that reeks of energy and anarchy. Words of advice – listen to the track, for heaven’s sake.

By Luke Bennett
