Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton has released a new song titled “Save Defiance”, a cut from his upcoming solo album Anesthetic. The song features the soaring croon of Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy. We love Myles Kennedy. Dude can sing.

Morton has said about working with Kennedy;

“We felt like it was a perfect fit for his voice. He dug the track and made it his own. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work with him.”

“Save Defiance” is the third track from the upcoming album, and the follow-up single to “Cross Off”, which featured the late Chester Bennington. Anesthetic will see release March 1st on Spinefarm Records.

Tourist Company and their “Fractured State”

“the world felt broken”

Published

Canadian alt-rockers Tourist Company have recently unveiled the second track from their upcoming new album. Titled “Fractured State”, the song is a beautiful, sweeping track that belies the darker undertone of what the song is about.

Vocalist/guitarist Taylor Swindells has said the song was partially inspired by the Charlottesville riots of 2017. At that point Swindells recalls the genesis of what would become the song;

“I remember watching news footage and feeling lost at the state of humanity. In that moment, the world felt broken. There were so many lines of tension running through the plot points of current events, and the present seemed to be predictably spiraling out of control. Essentially the song is about that emotional tension and the pressures of living in a world that feels like it’s falling apart.”

The band recently signed to Fierce Panda Records Canada and will release their sophomore album sometime in 2020. “Fractured State” follows on from the first track released from the upcoming album, the track “Conflicted/Restricted“.

Tourist Company is a Vancouver-based musical duo that consists of Swindells and Brenon Parry, formed in 2013. They released their debut album, Apollo, in 2016.

Killswitch Engage reveal “Unleashed”, set date for Atonement

Killswitch Engage’s new album is a reflection of perseverance

Published

Massachusetts metalcore band Killswitch Engage have announced the release date for their upcoming 8th studio album. Titled Atonement, the album is due for release August 16th on Metal Blade Records, and is the follow-up to 2016’s Incarnate. To preview the album, the band have revealed the first single from the release, the opening track, “Unleashed”, which you can listen to below.

Regarding the new single, vocalist Jesse Leach has said about the song;

“Unleashed is about inner passion and rage coming up to the surface. We all have that wild within that often stays dormant until a tragic event triggers and awakens it. This song is about that awakening within”

The new album is the third album to feature Jesse Leach after his return in 2013’s terrific Disarm the Descent. Atonement’s most anticipated song perhaps (at least in our eyes), is the second track “Signal the Fire”, which features guest vocals from the man who voiced KsE for a decade, Howard Jones. We have fluctuated between preferring Leach at the vocals to Jones at the vocals all through the KsE discography- teased by how Leach songs sounded with Jones singing (“Fixation on the Darkness“) and how Jones songs sounded with Leach singing, but the thought of having them both sing together on one song………………

Atonement has been in the making since 2017, but was temporarily derailed after Leach had to undergo throat surgery. Killswitch Engage will hit the road across North America all through July before jetting off to Europe in October.
