Our favorite Belgian band THOT has just released a music video today! We love this band, and everything they put out. We have featured them before on our site here and we even featured their song The Shy Summer on our Migrate Music Mixtape Vol. II – Alignment Of Sound this month. (Its free to download)

From THOT,

“This video was shot in an undergroud house in Belgium and features Claudia, the guest vocal on The Shy Summer (she’s also singing on Spellbound Fields).
We are actually working on setting up an European tour for February 2012, that will go through Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Hungary and maybe more. Some gigs have been already confirmed and we just CAN’T WAIT! By the way, if you are interested to invite us in your town or to play acoustic gig in your room, feel free to get in touch with us at booking@thotweb.net

About acoustic shows. Silent. 2 are confirmed. First (a private one) will takes place in Paris on 17th September (Some of you will maybe receive invitations) and the other one will take place in Prague around 10 october. More details are coming soon.”

So you can watch the video below, AND you can download the original version of The Shy Summer HERE.

Drive A Victims Of Strange Bus Break-In While In Chicago On Rock Allegiance Tour with Papa Roach and P.O.D.

Our sources have informed us that Los Angeles’ Drive A were the victims of a bizarre bus break-in earlier this week in downtown Chicago, while on a break from their run on the Rock Allegiance Tour with Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Puddle of Mud, P.O.D., Red and Crossfade.

 

This past Tuesday night, as band members and crew slept on their bus while parked in an underground garage located in an area frequented by transients, an unidentified person entered the vehicle and made off with money, food, booze, clothing and an iPod, while leaving their gear untouched.

 

The band is taking it in stride, as front Bruno Mascolo explains, “I guess to make it in music these days you have to fully commit yourself, even if it means your home away from home being raided by homeless people on occasion. That being said, the next homeless person that asks us for change, we will be checking his pocket for our ipod. I’m just glad everyone is okay.”

THIS IS HELL Announces Details For Their Upcoming Album ‘Black Mass’

LONG ISLAND, NY – Long Island’s veteran hardcore metal group, This Is Hell, has announced that its fourth studio album, Black Mass, will see an October 11th release on Rise Records, confirming the identity of the mysterious website, AllRiseForTheBlackMass.com. The teaser site has seen a complete update, including a YouTube stream of the brand new track, “Black Mass.”

“The new album takes the crossover and metal influences from last album to much greater extremes and the end product was Black Mass, by far the heaviest and thrashiest songs we’ve written and recorded,” said guitarist, Rick Jimenez.

“Lyrically this album touches on issues we haven’t dove into before. Social injustice as a whole is a recurring theme. Persistence and empowerment are familiar themes with us that I’ve revisited, but with an even more aggressive outlook than before.”

Black Mass, the follow-up to the 2010 release, Weight of the World, was recorded earlier this summer at Killingsworth Studio in Valley Village, CA with producer, Tomas Costanza. 

“The artwork was done by Will Blood, an amazing English illustrator/artist that we’ve worked with on shirts and designs before,” added Jimenez. “The concept came from some lyrics and underlying themes from the album and Will really took the ball and ran with it. Whether someone takes the art at sheer superficial face value, or really absorbs the details and subtleties of it, it’s an extremely powerful piece of artwork. I feel the same way about the music and especially the lyrics on this new record.”
This Is Hell will hit the road next month for a North American tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid and The Chariot.
“We’re very excited for our upcoming tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid, and The Chariot,” said vocalist, Travis Reilly. “We’ve toured many times with Comeback Kid and we look forward to spending more time with them and meeting the other guys. It’s going to be great to play some new songs for a bunch of new faces.”

Migrate Music Exclusive: Young Statues

 

In the winter of 2010, a spontaneous trip to Athens, GA became the birth of New Jersey/Philadelphia indie-rock outfit Young Statues. The record first began to take shape at Chase Park Transduction Studios, where a series of songs were recorded between friends, songs that were initially never intended to be released. Intrigued by the results of these sessions, songwriter and vocalist Carmen Cirignano decided to continue working on them with longtime producer and engineer Steve Poponi at the Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, NJ.  It was here, with the help of bassist Tom Ryan and drummer Daniel Bogan, that these songs were transformed into the impressive debut record for a band comprised of longtime friends in the Philadelphia area music scene. Full of swelling guitars, intricate vocal melodies and introspective lyrics, “Young Statues” is evidence of a group of musicians who have honed their skills and made a record to be revered for its beauty, tact, and honesty.

The Young Statues have completed their Self Titled debut L.P. and will be set to release it on Nov. 8th via. Run For Cover Records.

Below is their tracklist for their debut album:

01. Spacism
02. Athens
03. Half Light
04. Bumble Bee
05. Losing A Friend
06. Young Statues
07. We Trusted Everything Enough
08. Keep It Dark
09. Pretty Girls Make Raves
10. Your Seasons Stay The Same
11. Meet Me At The Hudson
