Today we're streaming the new album from Century Media Records' Heart In Hand. Almost There is a punishing mixture of modern metalcore and the pissed off aggression of hardcore. The UK act follows in the step of fellow UK acts such as Your Demise and Bury Tomorrow. Stream Almost There in the replies.
Years ago, we fell in love with a charming indie band by the name of Sherwood. Sadly, they are no longer with us, but we can still hear the fantastic vocals of singer Nathan Henry on his new project, The Begging Sea. Today, we are premiering the official video for the first single, titled "Lightly Stepping," and it's super dope. The song is off his upcoming album, which you can pre-order here. In the meantime, head down to the replies, check out the video, and let us know what you think.
In the replies you can watch a video of Daft Punk unboxing its upcoming album, Random Access Memories, aboard a spaceship (because of course). The duo also teases a couple seconds of album opener "Give Life Back To Music."
In the video in the replies, Chino Moreno of Deftones talks about the possibility of releasing Eros (the record the band was working on when bassist Chi Cheng had his accident), saying it may be "more appropriate now."
