Bad Wolf - Drowning Beautiful

An amazing new act to look for: the Los Angeles band Bad Wolf -consisting of Kota Wade (lead vocals and keys), Tommy O. (guitars), Tim Falco (drums), and Alicia Vigil (bass)- have generated their own world with the fusion of steampunk and faerie-rock that brings fantasy-inspired edginess to the alternative rock genre.

Bad Wolf released their first EP "Once Upon…" featuring the lead single, "A Better World (ft. Traci Hines)", along with their first music video in late 2012. The second single, the brilliant song "Drowning Beautiful", is accompanied by an imaginative and whimsical music video by award-winning director Raiya Corsiglia: "Raiya took the message of choosing your own destiny, and gave it a story using visual symbolism. The video explores three different worlds, and encourages the listener to choose the world they want to live in" said lead singer Kota.

It's About Time: new music for YOUNG THE GIANT

Young The Giant - It's About Time

Here's the official music video for "It's About Time", the first single from Young The Giant's sophomore album "Mind Over Matter".

The new record is produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, M83, Tegan and Sara) and will be released on January 21 via Fueled By Ramen.

Frontman frontman Sameer Gadhia in a recent interview @ RollingStone.com said "Collectively as a band the record does tell the story of us trying to hone in on ourselves as a band. But individually I think a lot of people can relate to the idea of being able to battle their own selves – their doubts, the obsessions that they have, the idiosyncrasies they have, the things that they do to run away or get away from. And sometimes those things can be positive forces and sometimes they can be negative forces."

Betrayal, cruelty, despair: the new album of AFI

AFI - 17 Crimes

"Burials" is the title of the ninth studio album by Californian rock band AFI (A Fire Inside). It was recorded in Los Angeles, CA, produced by Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, Feeder, Counting Crows and many others), engineered by Andrew Scheps and released today through Republic Records/Universal Music Group.

In a statement regarding the album, AFI frontman Davey Havok said "This record is of silence, and the burials that result from that silence. It's of betrayal, cruelty, weakness, anxiety, panic – deep and slow – despair, injury and loss. And in this it is shamefully honest and resolutely unforgiving" and added that "Burials" is "far, far less straightforward than what we did on the last record, which – much like every record we create – was the result of a natural growth, a natural indication of where we are as songwriters now".

Three singles have been already released from the new record: "I Hope You Suffer" (watch the video here), "17 Crimes" (click on the image above to watch the video) and "The Conductor".
