“Philly, What the F*ck?” – new video from ska puks HUB ITY STOMPERS has landed online. The track comes from the band’s recent album “Haters Dozen”, featured with a full track by track commentary on IDIOTEQ a while back.

As promised, post metal act EARTH MOVES have premiered a new song and video for their new epic composition called “The Absurd Man”, coming from their new EP of the same name. Watch and listen to the full 4-tracker below.

‘The Absurd Man’ explores the weight of both dishonesty and mistrust and the emotions that come with them both. These themes are frequently referenced throughout ‘The Truth in Our Bodies’ and this writing felt almost like closure. This is intended to be consumed in full.

Heavy hardcore veterans BORN FROM PAIN are streaming new song and video “Antitown” in support of their new album “True Love“, out in mid-February via BDHW Records.

London emotive alt punk rockers THE BURNT TAPES are streaming a new track and video called “Yuzi”, taken from the forthcoming LP “Never Better”, out February 22, 2019 on Wiretap Records (US), Lockjaw Records (UK/EU)!

UK black metal anarchists DAWN RAY’D confirm they will take their renowned full length offering The Unlawful Assembly across the U.S. and make their first ever appearance in Canada alongside VILE CREATURE in January. The tour commences January 25/26th with their anticipated performance at the inaugural Black Flags Over Brooklyn Festival. Black Flags Over Brooklyn is a brand new anti-fascist, anti-racist extreme metal festival connecting dark hearts in solidarity. DAWN RAY’D will headline and VILE CREATURE is also among the stellar lineup. Full lineup, ticket information and more festival details can be found here.

“Black Flags Over Brooklyn is a celebration of the defiance of heavy metal, and the importance of resistance where ever you are. Heavy metal is freedom, it is anti-authoritarian and it is non hierarchical. Love black metal, hate fascism!” “We’re very excited to be kicking this short tour off at Black Flags Over Brooklyn, a celebration of the heavy metal resistance, before playing our first ever Canadian shows” comments DAWN RAY’D on their upcoming live dates. All dates below.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and PARKWAY DRIVE have announced a string of US dates in April and May. KILLSWITCH ENGAGE frontman Jesse Leach commented:

“After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn’t be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States. Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you. I am absolutely certain fans of both bands are in for a hell of a time. This will be one for the memories for sure — let’s rage!”

Parkway Drive frontman Winston McCall added:

“This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America. Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes. We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KSE their entire career. The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me. Bring on the insanity!”
