Feed Them To The Forest ‘LIE WITH THE DOGS’ Music Video

 

Feed Them To The Forest has recently released a music video for their track ‘Lie With The Dogs’ taken from their upcoming EP Can’t Forget. Capturing the band standing out in front of a total white background, fur babies run wild around the five-piece making it a dream come true for most people. Giving faces to the band that has brought a new wave of contemporary emo to the scene, the video encapsulates the band in a way that brings them to life like never before. The video, filmed in Yorkshire for over a week includes a multitude of dogs borrowed from friends and family. Vocalist Elliot Partridge says ““This was one of the most fun (and challenging) things we’ve done. First, we had to find as many dogs as we could to borrow, then we had to chase them around to get them to stay in shot and keep their paws clean somehow.” 

‘Lie With The Dogs’ is the first track to be released from upcoming Can’t Forget’ due for release May 7th.

THE MAPLE STATE release music video for WINNER and details for THE THINGS I HEARD AT THE PARTY

a0702814640_10Streaming their single ‘Winner’ on March 2nd, The Maple State have released the music video and are moving forward and gaining momentum as the launch for their upcoming album The Things I Heard At The Party draws near. Releasing on the 23rd of March via Far Out Records, the album will be available on a limited edition 12″ vinyl as well through most good digital retailers. To pre-order the album, click here.

Being an introduction to what the band are about to drop, ‘Winner’ is all kinds of emotions driven by passion and energy channelled through instruments and vocals. Taken from their bandcamp, the description of the track reads “I was in a relationship that came to a very abrupt end when I stumbled upon something pretty awful. I spent the next 24 hours drinking in Manchester, trying to forget what I’d seen and forgotten everything else. Obviously, this only served to make things much worse and I came away emotionally and physically beaten up. So I had a change of tack and spent the following 24 hours in the studio where I wrote and recorded the lyrics to ‘Winner’ in an afternoon. Between that initial emotional trauma and the final vocal takes that you hear on the track, only around 40 hours had passed. And that is why this is the most real song on the album. Everything you hear in my voice, I was living it in that moment.” 

Lyrically, the track is heartbreaking through perception. While brief, it’s gripping in nature with quick turns emphasised by the tone and tempo of the track. The video, engulfed by cinematic views decaying into the cracked scenes of industry, The Maple State have created an artistic piece of visualisation to match their effect. Starring guitarist and vocalist Gregory Counsell, he explains “We love the band Travis and are all huge fans of their videos from the 90s, in particular the video for ‘Turn’” adding “We shot it in a morning and afternoon, I wasn’t aware that they intended to start the video at the top of Winter Hill in -1C with snow and fog… by the end of the video I’m looking pretty well spent, and as much as I’d love to claim that way my acting, it was just me slowly dying.”

The Maple State has already announced details regarding their live shows, although due to their increasing fan base, dates are selling out quickly and in quick succession. Available tickets are on sale here.

Come The Spring ‘ECHOES’ Review

Brighton based progressive rock band, Come The Spring released their first full-length album this month on March 9th entitled Echoes. Released via Engineer Records, Come The Spring are emotionally charged in every aspect of their musicality.

18403402_945899282180363_3861558562026424439_n’13 Months’ kicks off the album with a huge surge of power, emphasising the sovereignty of the drums as it underlines the depth of the track, complimented by a weighted bass leading the rhythm. With such a solid starting point for Echoes, ’13 Months’ sets the tone of the album showing an anthemic and infectious potential for those with a progressive rock preference. As it moves into ‘Better Now’ the dynamism of the guitar really comes into play. Correlating with the vocals, the song highlights each talent individually, making Echoes come together in perfect synchronisation. Produced with clear, distinct sound, the augmented sound of the instruments are skilful and cadenced.

‘SJO’ brings on a different, surreal type of tone offering that atmospheric, almost visual experience. Feeling like the track would fit in well with the soundtrack to an epic, philosophical road-trip of self-exploration, ‘SJO’ is other-worldly in its short length and builds momentum for next track ‘For What It’s Worth.’ Released as a single earlier this month, ‘For What It’s Worth’ is a stand-out track on the album, showcasing the potential of Come The Spring thriving in arena-style live shows of fist pumping and ricocheting voices. As Echoes starts to become more distinct in its direction with a clear capability to use the instruments to their full potential to create their sound, ‘Brighton and the Blues’ comes with a mellow tone, fluctuating that power that has previously been displayed. It’s an intimate track, passionate in vocals as they fluctuate in frequency and attitude.

Album titled track, ‘Echoes’ contains masses of petulant proclivity with mood-altering vocals bringing a sense of pure indignation through raucous vocals. The persuasive nature of Echoes is of massive talent, delivered with high quality, well-produced tracks. For their final track, Come The Spring take on ‘Boys Of Summer’ spinning their own unique gyration on it, proving that Come The Spring has a definitive, solid sound in their grasp.

Come The Spring (and our previous bands) used to tour a lot but now we are a little older we have less time, so we have to concentrate on new tracks and releasing recordings.” Previously, the quintet has released two EP’s entitled Revive in 2015 and Seven For A Secret in 2013. The previous EP’s are creative in nature, with huge passion in the form of punk rock that helped them gain such an established place in the industry. As the band ride their momentum into the release of Echoes, Come The Spring are striding forth and are forecasting further single releases this year.

Come The Spring is currently working with Engineer Records for their release of Echoes and their single, video and CD for the U.K although has gained massive interest from Far East and USA labels to take their music global. Thanks to the help of Ian Sadler, who Come The Spring have described to have a “very good ear and knows where the band are coming from,” the band are happy with Echoes and are excited for the release tomorrow.

Echoes will be available for both digital downloads and physical copies.
