Toothgrinder Drop Music Video For “My Favorite Hurt”

Asbury Park, New Jersey metal band Toothgrinder have dropped their new music video recently. You can watch the music video for their song “My Favorite Hurt” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album I Am which is due out on October 11th via Spinefarm Records.

Frontman Justin Payne Matthews commented:

‘My Favorite Hurt‘ digs deeper into the relationships I have destroyed while in the throws of alcoholism and addiction. There is this dark place I have found myself many times throughout my life where I am always reaching for that next high and that next adrenaline rush. I am looking for anything to keep the wall between fantasy and reality hidden.”

“The problem is while I selfishly seek out pleasure in all forms, there is an endless amount of destruction I leave in my path. People I love more than anything turn to nothing more than a means to an end. It’s a crippling mind fuck that overtime manipulates itself into a psychosis.

I am addicted to people, affection of all kinds, newness, the ego and most of all the ebb and flow of pleasure and pain. I think I can trace back these thought patterns to age 5 or 6, little things that make so much sense now, but could not be brought to the surface for so long.

Dayseeker Share New Song “Burial Plot”

California post-hardcore band Dayseeker has shared their new song recently. You can stream the song “Burial Plot” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Sleeptalk which is due out on September 27th via Spinefarm Records.

Vocalist Rory Rodriguez commented:

‘Burial Plot‘ explores the end of a relationship with a loved one after feeling that you’d spend the rest of your life with them. It’s about the self reflection in realizing that you caused this inevitable split.

Toothgrinder Debut New Song “I Am”

Asbury Park, New Jersey metal band Toothgrinder have debuted their new song recently. You can check out the lyric video for their song “I Am” below. The song is the title track off the band’s upcoming new album I Am which is due out on October 11th via Spinefarm Records.

Vocalist Justin Matthews commented:

‘I AM‘… a mantra, a prayer, a mediation, a belief, a value, an all encompassing way of life. The title speaks of unity and presence. Becoming comfortable in one’s own skin. To endure whatever life throws at you with grace and gratitude. To love the ones who surround you and accept the things you can’t control. “I AM…” two of the most powerful words, for what you put after them shape your reality.

All of my life I have felt out of place, left out, a ghost, a phantom, a whisper in a sea of noise. I covered those deafening screams with abuse. Abusing others, friends, family, strangers, and most of all myself. I hurt the ones I love while still loving the one’s I hurt. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t dream, I couldn’t bleed, I couldn’t breathe. I have yet to right my wrongs, but I hope to start with a song.

The anger, the tension, the narcissism, the callousness, the ego were nothing but amplified in my previous words. The despair was covered up in anger and ego, the void was filled with things, all types of things. Bright things, dark things, shiny things, needless things, but never the right thing, never the real thing.

I do my best to traverse through the negative and reach out a loving hand to those in need. This record’s words give hope rather than facade. This record’s words speak truth rather than perceived truth. This record exposes myself and the lies I have told myself and other’s. If I could accomplish one thing with this record, it would be to help one person in need. One person struggling with alcoholism, addiction, depression, anxiety, loss, guilt, shame, delusion, denial, perfectionism, co-dependency, suicidal thoughts and the list goes on. I am an open book, reach out to me with whatever you are struggling with, I have most likely been there.

We traverse the dark, we traverse the light, but by the end of the record we breathe. This is who “I AM.” This is who we are. I speak my mind, sometimes the shadow, sometimes my plight. If there is one word that can describe this record it is love. Not the facade, but the kind that cuts wood and carries water.

Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening. Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of those rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. “I AM” haunted by waters. — Norman MacLean

My name is Justin and “I AM” an alcoholic, addict, and co-dependent. We are Toothgrinder and this is “I AM.”

I love you all.

Puppy Release Music Video For “Poor Me”

London, UK metal band Puppy have released their new music video recently. You can watch the video for their song “Poor Me” below. The song is taken from the band’s latest album The Goat which was released last January via Spinefarm Records.

Drummer Billy Price, who directed the clip, commented:

Going into this video we wanted to try make a kind of nonsensical YouTube tutorial-cum-pound land Ted Talk. There’s a lot of content online (& elsewhere) that presents incredibly complex information as being very simple and easy.

But, whether it’s taking apart a laptop with your bare hands, or curing insomnia through breathing exercises, a lot of these kinds of tasks are actually quite difficult to do. Certainly for us as a band anyway. But whilst you might never really optimise your wellbeing or fix the weird sound coming out of your amp or whatever, it can be kind of satisfying watching someone else fix these deeply intricate things with a Zen-like ease. It’s somehow quite calming.

Anyway, with this in mind, we wanted to try approach the lyrical and tonal themes of ‘Poor Me‘ with the energy of a Youtuber conveying wildly elaborate instructions to a totally confused viewer. The resultant video may not be of any practical use at all, but it might serve as some useful distraction. Or maybe even be somehow quite calming.

Dayseeker Drop Music Video For Album Title Track “Sleeptalk”

Orange County, California post-hardcore band Dayseeker have dropped the music video for their song “Sleeptalk” recently. You can give that music video a watch below. The song is the title track off the band’s upcoming new album Sleeptalk which is due out on September 27th via Spinefarm Records.

Vocalist Rory Rodriguez commented:

‘Sleeptalk,’ as a single and album, is our proudest work to date. We’ve never felt more confident in our music than this very moment. The music video explores a toxic relationship with a couple who have separated but continue seeing one another after the fact. The underlying message is how we sometimes would rather live in misery than separate from someone we love so dearly.

Saint Asonia Debut New Song “The Hunted” Ft. Sully Erna of Godsmack

Rock supergroup Saint Asonia have debuted their new song “The Hunted” featuring Sully Erna of Godsmack recently. You can give that song a listen below. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming new album “Flawed Design” which is due out this fall via Spinefarm Records.

Frontman Adam Gontier commented:

‘The Hunted‘ is a song about struggling to find your place in life. It’s a solid representation of the direction Saint Asonia is headed. I’m excited to share this with the world. And it’s an awesome bonus having Sully from Godsmack guesting on it.

Guitarist Mike Mushok added:

I’m very excited for everyone to get a taste of what the new Saint Asonia album is going to sound like and I think that having ‘The Hunted‘ as our first single is a great representation of where the band is going. It’s also a huge honor to have a longtime friend — Sully Erna, whose musicianship I’ve admired for years — be a guest on this song.
