Ghost’s Tobias Forge reveals that he has been working on the next album

This week has been a roller-coaster of emotions as Tool’s Maynard announces that the new album probably won’t be released in April, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor announces his collaboration with British rapper Kid Bookie and we learned that Tom DeLonge used to hunt for big foot while on tour with Blink-182 (probably the biggest wtf moment, even though we can kind of learn to expect these things from the A&A frontman.) But now, the light is shining brightly at the end of the tunnel, with Tobias Forge, aka Cardinal Copia has reveleaed that work is underway for Ghost’s next album.

Originally, the plan was for new material to be released in 2020, but in a recent interview with Billboard, it seems that Forge is already hard at work writing new music. Talking to Billboard, Forge says “Luckily this time around I feel very certain as to what I want to do. I have tons of bits and pieces and stuff written, and I know that once I start working that there’s going to be a record which feels very inspired.” Ghost has been announced for the Australian Download line-up as well as touring Europe with Metallica this summer on June 18th and 20th and with all of our fingers crossed, we’re hoping that they’ll be over to celebrate festival season in the UK , too. I mean, they’re in the area, right?

“The dramaturgic nature of the records and the stories are getting more and more intertwined nowadays, which I like. It’s kind of like writing a series, I guess; You have your characters and you can still fuck with them and add new things and take things away. You can do whatever you want, which is always enticing from a creative standpoint.”

Brooklyn based trio, Midnight Foolishness has been on the bill for a plethora of names including Red Jumpsuit ApparatusCrazytown and Carousel Kings, and their latest material show them climbing the ladder even further into their own. The NY pop punk band recently premiered their video ‘Are You Ready?’ taken from their full-length debut album Use Your Head, Not Your Hands.

MAYPINE releases music video for ‘GIVE’ and details upcoming EP Bend/Break

Brighton based pop-punk quintet, MAYPINE has released a music video for the most recent track ‘Give.’

Filmed in St Peter’s Church in Brighton for its architectural features, the cinematography for ‘Give’ highlights energy MAYPINE puts into their music. Vocalist Jase explains “The video follows the EP colour scheme, with red lighting filling a dark space with moments of bright white light at key moments of the song. As a performance video for our first single, it gives people a glimpse of what our live shows are like.”

The track features a heavy emphasis on cadenced drumming, with the tight snare complimenting the deep sound of the bass drum as it moves it’s way around and pushing out the symbols with epic force. MAYPINE have risen to one of the best rising pop-punk bands to come from the UK and for good reason. ‘Give’ shows the talents that the band has as a unit with ferocious, unrelenting sound with layers of depth and intertwining instrumental tracks. The distinctive sound that MAYPINE has conjured brings them further into the spotlight as they edge closer to the release of upcoming EP Bend/Break. ‘Give’ was recently premiered on BBC Radio 1, and is quickly becoming a highly anticipated release for this year. Due on July 6th, the band revealed that Bend/Break should be considered as their debut EP. “As a band, we decided to remove our debut EP from all streaming platforms. This is not to say we’re not proud of it, but we just felt that we needed to be as authentic as possible and to write songs that reflect who we are, not who we felt we needed to be.” According to MAYPINE, upcoming Bend/Break is a much truer representation of the band, feeling as though they have truly found their sound.

“Following a fire at my flat, my fiancée and I lost the majority of our things and had to rebuild. Obviously, this was an incredibly stressful time and I felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders and could bear no more burdens. However, I fought through and became a much stronger person in the face of adversity,” vocalist Jase comments. “Bend/Break is a therapeutic record. I had so many emotions and so much frustration that I need to expel through music. It’s definitely helped the healing process.”

With a variety of influences, MAYPINE reveals that Bend/Break includes a variety of the band’s inspirations as they head on further into their career. Primarily influenced by bands such as PVRIS, Boston Manor, Thrice and Nirvana, MAYPINE headed to The Ranch to work with Neil Kennedy and George Daly with mastering duties left with Grant Berry at Fader. The four-track EP is due for release on July 6th with pre-orders live now by clicking here for physical copies or here for digital.
