Lifeline - Lost

Our Mirage is an alternative rock/post-hardcore band from Marl, Germany.

The band was founded in 2017 with the release of the first single Nightfall which had over 200.000 views after 2 weeks. One year, four singles (with almost 3 million views), many shows in Germany and a small European tour after, the Germans released their debut album Lifeline.

The LP dropped last August 24 via Arising Empire (a sub-label of Nuclear Blast) and was written, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by vocalist and band leader Timo Bonner at Mega Blaster Recordings in Haltern am See.

All the 11 songs included in Lifeline are reflections of things that happened in the vocalist's life - anxiety, depression, bullying, suicide attempt. These lyrics are packed into emotional music and singing melodies that will hit the listeners deep in their feelings: "Hard hitting lyrics with heart hitting music," as Bonner defines Our Mirage's music.

Greek Fire - Top Of The World

At the very end of last year I told you about Greek Fire, a promising band from St. Louis, Missouri, formed in 2008 by members of Story Of The Year and Maybe Today. The group was about to release their sophomore album as two separate EPs entitled "Lost / Found".

Well, the first EP, "Lost", financed by a successfull PledgeMusic campaign and produced with the help of such luminaries as John Feldmann, Matt Amelung and Elvis Baskette, was finally released last May 13. Watch the official music video for the first single "Top Of The World" clicking on the image above.

As already said, if stadium-ready alternative rock merged with progressive pop rock and a touch of post-hardcore is your cup of tea, then Greek Fire is a band to follow.
