Filter Stream 'Self Inflicted' From their upcoming album 'The Sun Comes Out Tonight'

Filter exclusively stream taster track, ‘Self Inflicted’, via Loudwire.com 

The track features onthe US band’s sixth studio albumand Wind-Up/Spinefarm Records’ debut, The Sun Comes Out Tonight, due to be unleashed on June 3rd 2013.

The band has already released first single, ‘What Do You Say’, and ‘Self Inflicted’ is another explosive track from the multi-platinum rockers.

Main-man Richard Patrik says…

“I wanted to try and understand the mass shooter, so I created a character, wrote the lyrics and performed it from the perspective of the shooter… based on the psychology I read that said there was a pattern. For example, an event like Columbine, [looking at it as if] the shooters were the victims and that somehow we or society made them do it — that somehow they were the victims. That this was self-inflicted.”

On the live front, Filter have announced two UK headline shows, the first of which will take place on August 26th at Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh followed by an appearance at Islington O2 Academy, London on August 28th. 2013 UK festival appearances will be announced shortly.

Filter Announce UK Headline Dates for August 2013

Multi-platinum US rockers FILTER have announced two UK headline shows, the first of which will take place on August 26th at Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh followed by an appearance at Islington O2 Academy, London on August 28th.

Prior to these shows, Filter will unleash their sixth studio album and Wind-Up/Spinefarm Records debut, The Sun Comes Out Tonight, on June 3rd 2013.

Described as "a combination of grunge heat and industrial ice" by Rolling Stone, few rock groups have so consistently torn up the rule book and ploughed their own path, the music – contemporary, intelligent & unorthodox – topped off by the signature roar of front-man, former Nine Inch Nails associate & band nucleus, Richard Patrick.

Now, in 2013, guitarist Jonny Radtke (ex-Kill Hannah) has joined the ranks as co-conspirator, helping to define the brand new body of work that is The Sun Comes Out… – a glorious industrial rock fusion recorded at Blue Room Studios in Los Angeles with Bob Marlette (Atreyu, Shinedown, Seether) at the production helm.

Watch ‘the making of ‘The Sun Comes Out Tonight’ (part 1)’ here

‘Part two’ will be premiering on www.purevolume.com on May 24th.

VOODOO SIX EXCLUSIVELY STREAM NEW ALBUM ‘SONGS TO INVADE COUNTRIES TO’ VIA SPOTIFY IN THE LEAD UP TO ITS RELEASE ON MAY 27TH, WHEN THE BAND HIT THE ROAD WITH IRON MAIDEN…CLICK HERE FOR STREAM

VOODOO SIX EXCLUSIVELY STREAM NEW ALBUM ‘SONGS TO INVADE COUNTRIES TO’ VIA SPOTIFY

LOCKED, LOADED & READY TO GO: British modern hard rockers Voodoo Six’s new studio album, 'Songs To Invade Countries To', is now exclusively available to stream via Spotify, a week ahead of its official release on May 27th 2013.

This much-anticipated outing will be available from May 27th, coinciding with the first date of V6’s European tour with UK metal legends Iron Maiden. The tour will include major festival appearances, including Download Festival, Graspop, SeeRock and TopFest, plus several Sonispheres (Barcelona, Madrid, Milan & Amneville).

The new album consists of 11 studio tracks produced by Tony Newton, mixed by Tony Newton & Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Enter Shikari, Therapy?) and mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, British Lion). It follows 2010's 'Fluke?' outing, which was released through Classic Rock's Powerage label and mixed by renowned studio engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica). At some point in the future, ‘Fluke?’ will see an enhanced re-issue via Spinefarm

Track-list:

1.Falling Knives

2.All That Glitters

3.Lead Me On

4.Sink Or Swim

5.You Don't Know

6.Your Way

7.Sharp Sand

8.Stop

9.Brick Wall

10.Waiting In Line

11.Higher Ground

V6 have gained a loyal following from their impressive portfolio of live activity, which has included several performances at Download, Sonisphere & Bloodstock, as well as touring with Adrenaline Mob, Edguy, Extreme, Michael Monroe & UFO.

Voodoo Six guitarist Chris Jones comments:-

“The album title was something that came about ages ago, but took on another dimension when we heard the news that we'd be going out with Iron Maiden on the ‘Maiden England’ tour. It's about taking our music further afield, and we can't wait to play to overseas audiences on this tour!”

Iron Maiden founder & bassist Steve Harris adds:-

“I've been keeping an eye on Voodoo Six for a while now, and they've produced a cracking new album with real promise. It's great to support true British up ‘n’ coming talent such as theirs, and it will be a pleasure to have them out with us on tour.”

Steve Harris isn't the only advocate of the band.  After touring with Adrenaline Mob last summer, V6 caught the attention of original Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, who has stated: -

“Voodoo Six are a great band with a bright future – cool guys, great players!'

'Songs To Invade Countries To' is released worldwide via Spinefarm Records on May 27.

NEW BADASS VIDEO FROM CHTHONIC

Taiwanese metal ensemble CHTHONIC reveals the first of a series of video singles from their forthcoming new full-length.
NEW BADASS VIDEO FROM CHTHONIC

“Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace” comes by way of the band’s seventh studio recording, Bú-Tik. With Bú-TikCHTHONIC continue their mission to build awareness of the myths of Taiwan and the tragic events in their country’s history. Centered around the story of the 228 Massacre, the Bú-Tik Palace and the Mirror Of Retribution, Bú-Tik highlights what bassist Doris Yeh describes as “righteous violence, justifiable defense, and the armed spirits!”

The video clip for “Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace” was spawned from a collaboration between longtime working associate/director Chuang Chi-wen and martial arts choreographer Jeremy Yang. Elaborates Yeh, “The BuTik Palace in Puli was used as command headquarters by Japanese colonial government to repress a Seediq Aboriginal Uprising in Wushe in 1930. During the initial phase of the 228 Massacre in 1947, militiamen in Taiwan also used it as its command headquarters. The chants in the second half of the song are the names of all martyrs who sacrificed themselves in resistance against dictators and fought for independence. The ideology of ‘Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace’ was really suited for using martial arts to express its platform. Whenever we are interviewed overseas,” she continues, “we are always asked if Asians know martial arts, and before, we would immediately deny it, but later we thought; ‘why don’t we really shoot such an MV for you guys?’”

To properly create the video, the band members spent more than a month in training. Despite the crash course in martial arts and an obvious spike in fitness levels however, on the day of shoot all members suffered numerous bruises and injuries. Vocalist Freddy Lim’s back was particularly blistered by all the wires. Commented Lim later with a wry smile, “Next time, we can’t just follow whatever Doris says. Her ideas are often very dangerous.”

“Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace” was filmed around Bú-Tik Palace in Tainan, shooting the real scene and combining it with 3D imaging techniques. With the support of Tainan City Hall, the director and the entire crew, CHTHONIC successfully created the first martial art video with Taiwan historical monument scenes. In addition, the song features popular Taiwanese opera actress Meiyun Tang as the guest singer. Said Lim, “I really like Tang’s work. When I sent her the invitation, I didn’t expect that she would nod her head without doubt!”

Bú-Tik was recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtson, who also worked on 2011’s critically-lauded Takasago Army full-length and finds the band sharpening their signature brand of self-dubbed symphonic “orient metal.”Bú-Tik will be released in North America via Spinefarm Records US later this June.
