THE AMITY AFFLICTION Release New Song, Announce New Album

THE AMITY AFFLICTION Release New Song, Announce New Album

Ocean-loving vocal duo THE AMITY AFFLICTION have released a new song entitled I Bring The Weather With Me, as well announcing their new album This Could Be Heartbreak, due for release later this year. The new album will be the The Amity Affliction’s fifth full-length record, following their 2014 effort Let The Ocean Take Me. The new song also includes an accompanying music video, which shows the Stringer and Birch singing in a church all snappily dressed and fabulous while a bloke hangs out in a coffin at the front of the room, presumably super-dead. The new clip has also solidified rumours that Stringer and Birch will be carrying forward The Amity Affliction banner on their own for the foreseeable future, with the other members of the band noticeably absent from the clip. Following the increasing success of the Stringer/Birch brand, the new release will reportedly be the last under the The Amity Affliction name, before the fellas break out on their own. Sources close to the band say several names are being discussed for the new project, including Top Deck, Ebony and Ivory, and Penguin Heads. You can check out the new song below, and pre-orders are available for This Could Be Heartbreak here. The new record will drop on August...
KORN To Announce New Producer & Record Label For New Album

KORN To Announce New Producer & Record Label For New Album

Decorated dads of nu-metal KORN (not to be confused with “corn”, the large grain plant originally domesticated by indigenous people of Mexico approximately 10,000 years ago), are set to announce a new record label and producer, departing from their current label Caroline Records. The band are locked away recording songs for their twelfth studio album, the follow-up to 2013’s The Paradigm Shift, which will be the second to feature long-time guitarist Brian “Head” Welch after he returned to the band as a full-time member in 2013. Welch has reportedly said that the new album will be “the heaviest thing they’ve done”, so perhaps Caroline Records/Universal Music can’t handle the zazzy nu-metal heavy that Korn are ready to unleash later this year. RELATED: Korn Reaffirm Nu-Metal Revival by Announcing 20th Anniversary Tour For Debut Album In an interview with Billboard.com the former Jesus-worshipping goodguy spoke of what it was like to be back with his writing partner, James “Munky” Schaffer. ”The new record just with me and Munky being back together, we’ve had three years to tour and jam together and so we really came together and focused heavily on guitars on this record. So it’s going to be a guitar-heavy Korn record and it sounds, I believe what the true fans have been waiting for for a long time. I just feel like that they’re going to be really satisfied and excited about this album. We are pumped.” In anticipation of the new album, we’ve posted their classic song Somebody Someone to channel some Issues-flavoured tunes for the new...
RINGS OF SATURN Sign With Nuclear Blast

RINGS OF SATURN Sign With Nuclear Blast

Love/hate deathcore act RINGS OF SATURN have signed on with major label Nuclear Blast, which means much to the salty elitists disdain the controversial band isn’t going anywhere soon. The space-peddling presumed DMT aficionados came under fire back in 2012 when they were accused of recording their second album Dingir at “half-speed” by some bloke named Brent Shields from website GreatNewMetal.com. Ol’ mate Shields posted a lengthy Facebook statement upon its release calling the album a “fraud”, stating “Recently someone close to the band reached out to me in an effort to end “the feud” and I suggested one thing that could make me reconsider my lack of respect is if they came out and admitted to the public that the record is recorded at half speed. The response was not a denial but rather a justification” Rings Of Saturn denied the allegations, with guitarist Lucas Mann releasing a long-ass statement calling out Shields for having a personal vendetta against the band and attempting to ruin their reputation. The jury is still out here at IPHYB whether RoS are doing the dodgy and recording in half time, but perhaps it pays to look at their music like we look at WWE or Perth – it’s fun to pretend, but you have to keep in mind it’s not actually...
DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT Announce New Album

DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT Announce New Album

The always entertaining Devin Townsend Project have set an official date of September the 2nd for the release of their long-awaited new album Transcendence. The new record will be the follow-up to 2014’s Z2, and the first where madman mastermind Devin Townsend has employed the rest of the band during the writing process as opposed to the one-man writing rampage on previous records. Townsend said of the new album: “Transcendence, like every record I’ve done prior, is an extension of what’s been going on in my world, represented in a new batch of songs. I’m 44 years old now, and this is where I have been over the past two years since Z2” Elaborating on the newly-found collaborative writing process, the fabulous-haired individual said “The result of this process is a record that I truly think the intention of is special. I ‘found’ gas to put into the tank and am glad I did. I think the intention, the theme, and the participation of everyone involved allows this album to act like a fulcrum between the past few years and what I intend to do next with the symphony. I am very proud of it and everyone involved.” While you wait you can check out the cover art for Transcendence below, and suss out the live version of March Of The Poozers (metal is for...
