With the release of their forthcoming fourth album, »Earthbound«, a matter of weeks away, BURY TOMORROW have revealed a video for new single, 'Last Light'.
Speaking of the track and the accompanying video, singer Dani Winter-Bates says, "'Last Light' is about the acceptance of death, the video uses animation which is something we've never done and it's turned out awesome... It can be taken two ways - either the loss of sanity whilst grieving for a loved one or the literal descent into the after life. I feel like the song itself shows a lot more of our melodic side."
»Earthbound« is released on January 29th 2916 on Nuclear Blast.

London, UK - Rock legends Lucifer’s Friend reformed in 2015, some 20+ years after they were last together. LIVE @ SWEDEN ROCK 2015 captures the band’s performance on the 4 Sound Stage on Friday 5th June 2015 as the HEADLINE act. The set list includes the band’s greatest hits from the 1970s plus songs from the recently released ‘Awakening’ title.
Lucifer's Friend formed in 1970 with their influential and groundbreaking self-titled album, famous album among connoisseurs of 70's hard rock. Its heavy and majestic overtones made it a pioneer release of progressive rock genre.
The group went on to release six albums in that decade. In 1976 Lucifer's Friend suffered a hard blow when British vocalist John Lawton jumped ship for none other than Uriah Heep. The band broke up in 1982 and briefly reformed in 1994 for their ninth album “Sumo Grip”. Now they're back, after 20 years, literally by the fans' request…
“This being only the second live concert since our reformation, we were all of course a bit nervous. However the crowd made us more than welcome and after the first few notes, the adrenalin kicked in and we were up and running. To play Sweden Rock Festival...one of the biggest festivals on the circuit was for us a great honour and one which we will hopefully repeat. This live album represents the band in full flow and with a new studio album planned in 2016, we hope to go on 'Riding The Sky'” - John Lawton

Sweden's new doom darlings AVATARIUM's current masterpiece, called »The Girl With The Raven Mask«, was released on October 23rd, 2015 via Nuclear Blast. It topped the soundchecks of several European magazines (f.e. Rock Hard (D), Metal Hammer (D),...) and today the band reveals the music video for the song 'Pearls And Coffins', one of the album's standout tracks.
The video was filmed in Södra Teatern and Stora Vika, directed by Johan Bååth and produced by Robert Lundmark and Magnus Johansson from Bobin Film. Lundmark was also responsible for the editing.
"When I first heard 'Pearls & Coffins,' the vulnerable beauty and violent darkness of the song really struck me. "Machine guns and soulless fashion" I pictured a cold war-like dystopian concrete dreamworld from another time in the past. There when everything is lost, you let your deepest inner emotional feelings out, no matter how dark they appear.
The fascination for and showing violence is always tricky and it will and should always affect you and make you think twice. I feel that the video and the lyrics are about our deeper, darker corners inside our human mind and in our hearts of momentarily darkness where violence might set seed and may grow. Showing the shoot-out was meant as a personal metaphor for just that and of course not to encourage violence in any way, shape or form.
Before making this video I was in close contact with my friend and filmmaker Jonas Åkerlund and his wife and stylist Bea Åkerlund and we agreed to make Jennie Ann really stand out as a flawless Post War-Lipstick killer and a Femme Fatale. Bea recommended an upcoming Swedish fashion stylist: Christopher Insulander (LINK) who is really cool and innovative in a way that would make a huge difference in the appearance of especially Jennie's look and outfit. I truly think his work and creation is a piece of art that really makes the video look amazing and really stand out as something different for time to come.
Watch the magnificent new video here.

Devilskin, a phenomenon in their native New Zealand, release the new single Start A Revolution on February 26th to celebrate their first ever UK tour.
The anthemic Start A Revolution from their debut album We Rise is a “call to arms, a wake up call that it’s not too late to do something to change your world.“
With the song’s strong message warning people against complacency, the abstract video touches upon pathos, desperation and fear. Feast your eyes now upon the visually arresting Start A Revolution video:
Devislkin’s debut UK Headline tour kicks off in Birmingham on February 18th and the 8 dates include The Underworld in London on February 26th. Devilskin will be supported on tour by Skarlett Riot.
Devilskin promise their UK shows will be “hard hitting, hot and sweaty” and entertain UK audiences “beyond their expectations”.
We Rise debuted at #1 in New Zealand and became the first album since 2010 by a domestic rock band to achieve Platinum status, while the critics have lauded its UK release.
We Rise, has now been in the Top 20 NZ Albums chart for 78 weeks while the videos for We Rise, have amassed over in excess of 1.65 million views on YouTube.
The four piece Devilskin hail from Hamilton, New Zealand and comprise of the mesmerizing Jennie Skulander on vocals, the red bearded ‘evil twins’ Nail and Paul Martin on guitars and Nic Martin on drums. Devilskin have already earned a formidable reputation by earnestly demonstrating commitment to unpretentious musical values: writing songs that have depth and passion, and a relentless touring schedule. In 2015 Devilskin have supported Mötley Crüe, Slash and Alice Cooper in New Zealand. Their tactical instrumental attack is balanced by the seductive Jennie Skulander and her incredible voice that sweeps from whisper to roar, rips with power, drips with melody and captivates with sincerity.
Devilskin’s irresistible We Rise is at times visceral, urgent and magniloquent but is also tempered with tenderness, empathy, love and bare souls. “‘We Rise’ is a roller coaster of emotions and moods, just like life” enthuses Paul Martin “there’s definitely power and there’s definitely passion. The songs are very real, and brutally honest, just like our live show.”
Musically twisted and possessed We Rise combines gorgeous melodies of heavy, bombastic rifts, with streamlined hard rock anthems aimed squarely at the arena circuit, no one else does it better right now.
se UK dates mark the beginning of the Devilskin revolution and their conquering the Northern Hemisphere.
