Wounds Release New Video For Dead Road Via Alternative Press

Dublin’s heavy rock music quartet, Wounds, have released a new video for their exhilarating track, Dead Road. The explosive and passionate track, which features Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent fame, transcends their heavy sound into a radio-ready, modern day hit.  The band, who released their debut album Die Young late last year, are set to take on SXSW with multiple not-to-miss performances in Austin, Texas.

Not many bands have been through as much as Wounds in the last two years. From the highs of rave reviews for their debut EP and debut album to the lows and grief of a near death experience that almost took the life of one of their members in a horrific four story fall, Wounds are careening their way to the top with an incredible debut album that has been described as one “…of the most intense debut albums of the year.” (Kerrang!) Wounds are currently featured  in Alternative Press‘ 100 Bands You Need To Know This Year.

“This is the first song I ever had the guts to sing, and it’ll be the last song I’ll ever sing,” says frontman Aiden Coogan. “I think the world will see the emotion attached in the video and the regret and pain of never telling you loved someone while they were still around. It’s a pretty literal song but it’s reality and the one certainty in life is death and I find that fascinating.”

With multiple international tours under their belts and after making a huge splash in Europe, Wounds will take on SXSW for the first time this year.

Intervals Release Their Debut Album, A Voice Within, Today. Now Streaming On Revolver.com

The incredibly intricate and monstrously metallic band Intervals released their highly anticipated debut full-length, A Voice Within today, March 4. To celebrate the release, the band have hit the road with Protest The Hero to bring their explosive live performance across North America. Fans are invited to stream the album in it’s entirety courtesy of Revolver.

Check out the exclusive stream on Revolver.com.

The new album establishes the band as one of the most exciting progressive metal forces of 2014 with crushing vocals, soaring guitar solos and complex songwriting. Having already carved a place for themselves as a virtuosic instrumental force in the metal world, Intervals made the unexpected yet highly impressive move to bring vocals into the mix, with former bassist Mike Semesky moving to the microphone.

“A Voice Within is the middle ground between the band’s past and present,” says guitarist Aaron Marshall. “While maintaining the same heavily melodic, guitar driven identity, we’ve introduced an added dimension through Mike’s vocals. Our moniker has always been to make the music we feel compelled to make and A Voice Within is a slice of open minded insight into the art we feel inspired to convey.”

Intervals have received an overwhelmingly huge response across North America and Europe. Their powerful songs, energetic performances and tasteful musical skill have gained major support from both fans and media alike. With two EPs, The Space Between and In Time and numerous international tours under their belts, Intervals are playing their first shows with their new line up in North America with Protest The Hero, Battle Cross, Safety Fire and Night Verses.

A Voice Within is available via iTunes starting today via here and physical albums available by going here.

Kicking off the new year with an extensive run of dates around the world, Night Verses are beyond excited to announce that they’ll be supporting Protest The Hero in their native USA. Get ready for their unique and flawlessly executed melding of post-hardcore, prog and a sense of musicality and passion that will knock you straight off your feet, starting March 1 in Buffalo, NY.

Frontman Douglas Robinson enthuses: “Protest the Hero, Battlecross, Safety Fire and Intervals are forward thinking bands and we’ve been very fortunate to continue touring with artists who share our ideals at such an early stage in our career. ”

Night Verses’ debut album Lift Your Existence was released last year and quickly garnered the band a slew of impressive reviews, culminating in a critically acclaimed European tour with letlive. The album, which Revolver Magazine described as “ a collection of songs that runs the gamut from apocalyptic to tender, intensely virtuosic to brutally vulnerable”, hit Rock Sound’s Top 40 Albums of The Year and their track I Don’t Want My Loved Ones To Die which was featured in the Top Songs of 2013 inKerrang! Magazine.

The band has gained a formidable following in Europe and in the US and their commitment to travelling far, wide and often has seen their dedicated fan base grow exponentially.
