ABOUT SLEEP TOKEN:
Beneath the Sleep Token banner, lies the unique, broad-based vision of one individual — anonymous, silent, masked, armed with a staggering vocal range, a deft touch on the keyboards, plus a live approach that is never less than fully engaged. The UK underground entity only known as Sleep Token, fronted by Vessel, began the Sundowning ritual June 20, 2019 with “The Night Does Not Belong To God.” Sleep Token began to release their “offerings” bi-weekly, released Thursday’s at Sundown BST with accompanying visualizers. Each offering had its own emblem, establishing the Sleep Token universe on the debut album Sundowning. On June 18, 2021, the cycle began again but born anew. The new album This Place Will Become Your Tomb pushes the boundaries of Sleep Token’s sound into new avenues of blurring genres while still retaining the signature sound.

Southern California’s DAYSEEKER are releasing a digital deluxe version of their fourth album Sleeptalk. Since its release, the album has accumulated over 40 million streams.

The deluxe version features four reimagined versions of album tracks, which offer fans a fresh and unique take on songs they already love.

“Getting to reimagine this song was really special for us,” says singer Rory Rodriguez. “We took on an industrial-type sound for this reimagining and it’s completely different than anything we’ve done before.”

The deluxe colored double vinyl pressing will arrive on December 3.

Dayseeker will return to the road this fall, touring with We Came as Romans and The Devil Wears Prada. All dates are below.

EMPLOYED TO SERVE RELEASE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR “MARK OF THE GRAVE” — WATCH

NEW STUDIO ALBUM CONQUERING OUT SEPTEMBER 17 VIA SPINEFARM — PRE-ORDER HERE

Employed To Serve have released the music video for their latest single “Mark Of The Grave.” Check it out here.

“Mark Of The Grave” is the second single from the forthcoming album, Conqueringand demonstrates the band at their most metal yet. The video is a trip, to say the least…

“With this video we just wanted to have fun,” says frontwoman Justine Jones. “After months of being cooped up inside, we wanted to focus on a project that was more light-hearted. We shot the music video at Miracle Theatre in Cornwall with director Ryan Mackfall. The theatre was kind enough to give us free reign of their studio and stage costumes. Everything was shot in front of a green screen to maximize the opportunity to have fun with the edit. We then sent over a few notes to VFX artist Nadav Rotem and assistant Jake Potter, as soon as they came back with Sammy doing a solo on a flying, flaming skull, I knew it was going to be my favorite video — it’s wild and we love it.”

Conquering releases on September 17 and is Employed To Serve’s second full-length album on Spinefarm.

Drawing influence from the music of their youth and a new perspective on how to nurture the positive aspects of humanity and individual growth, Conquering is a celebration and acknowledgement of triumph in the face of a world that can be relentlessly adversarial. The band began recording the album in the “unforgiving winter” of 2020; produced and mixed by Lewis Johns at The Ranch, Southampton, mastered by Grant Berry at Fader Mastering, Employed To Serve took the time thrown at them by a world stopped still to write their most visceral material to date.

Pre-orders are live, with an instant download of singles, “Exist” and “Mark Of The Grave,” plus special bundle options.

CONQUERING TRACK LISTING:
“Universal Chokehold”
Exist
“Twist The Blade”
“Sun Up To Sun Down”
“The Mistake”
“We Don’t Need You”
“Set In Stone”
“Mark Of The Grave”
“World Ender”
“Conquering”
“Stand Alone”

EMPLOYED TO SERVE ARE:
Justine Jones — Vocals
Sammy Urwin — Guitar + vocals
David Porter — Guitar
Nathan Pryor — Bass
Casey McHale — Drums

ABOUT EMPLOYED TO SERVE:
Employed to Serve’s origins are essentially humble, with the core duo of Justine Jones (vocals) and Sammy Urwin (guitar/vocals) initially starting the band as a two-piece grindcore project backed by a drum machine. Early experiences on the UK festival scene expanded their horizons and perceptions of what weightier music could be. Seeing heavy-hitters such as Converge, Meshuggah, and Glassjaw alongside smaller but no less important acts like Rolo Tomassi, Veils, and The Chariot inspired the duo to develop their vision. 2014’s Change Nothing Regret Everything EP operated as a stepping stone into full band territory, before 2015’s critically acclaimed debut album, Greyer Than You Remember, became their calling card, followed up two years later by The Warmth of a Dying Sun, then their 2019 Spinefarm debut Eternal Forward Motion.  Employed to Serve have already proved themselves as a searingly intense and honest live experience, sharing bills with the cream of the crop of modern heavy music, including Code Orange, Bury Tomorrow, Stick To Your Guns, Loathe, Counterparts, and Underoath. They’ve also decimated stages at some of the UK and Europe’s leading music festivals, the likes of Download, Glastonbury, Graspop, and Hellfest. And the accolades are unstoppable; from their Kerrang! Album of the Year win back in 2017, achieving the assumed impossible with a KKKKKK (yes, that is 6 K’s!) live review, landing in Metal Hammer’s reader and staff Top 10 Album polls, and a 2020 sold-out Underworld performance, to a plethora of cover features across Music Week, Metro Weekend, Upset, and Kerrang!, Employed to Serve are unflinching at the forefront of metal innovation.

BLACK FOXXES TO RELEASE EXTENDED VERSION OF THEIR SELF-TITLED THIRD ALBUM – PRE-ORDER HERE
DIGITAL DELUXE FEATURES FOUR NEW TRACKS + ARRIVES SEPTEMBER 17

LISTEN TO “45” HERE

“’Black Foxxes’ is an album that showcases the band’s sheer talent, proving them as not just one of the best alt-rock bands around, but one of the more interesting bands around. Period.” — LINE OF BEST FIT

“More assured than ever… a band reinvigorated” —DORK

“There are just so many little touches that lift Black Foxxes from your usual post punk gee-tar drudgery offered by so many wannabes… an impeccable album” — NARC

“In avoiding the middle of the road, this trio has stumbled upon a new wellspring they’ve soon mastered how to draw from” — KERRANG!

Black Foxxes have announced an extended version of their critically acclaimed, self-titled album. Originally released back in January 2020, the new digital deluxe version features four brand new tracks and will be available on September 17 across all digital platforms. Pre-order here.

“The digital deluxe release of this record is something we wanted to do immediately upon writing the songs a couple of years ago,” the band explains. “We knew the length of the record would be too much to include everything in the initial release, but now that those first nine tracks have had time to set in for everyone, it feels like the perfect time to release the extended version.”

Check out the brand new single “45” here.

“’45’ was actually written years ago with the old line up,” says Black Foxxes main man Mark Holley. “It just felt like a nod back to the early days of the band during the ‘I’m Not Well’ release. It’s just straight up raw. With the way our band is writing music now it feels miles away from the heaviness of this sound, but that’s one thing we said from the offset: that there would be absolutely no limits when it came to genres. It feels nice to throw in one of our heaviest tracks whilst writing some super wanky and pretentious album 4 material. Get a guy that can do both, y’ know?”

 BLACK FOXXES DELUXE TRACK LISTING:
“I Am”
“Badlands”
“Drug Holiday”
” My Skin Is”
“Panic”
“Swim”
“Jungle Skies”
“Pacific”
“The Diving Bell”

DELUXE TRACKS:
“45”
“End Of”
“Witch Mountain”
“Use Me”

ABOUT BLACK FOXXES:
Over the course of two albums (2016’s I’m Not Well and 2018’s Reidl), Black Foxxes main man Mark Holley established his band as a potent creative force, carving out a signature spot on the emotive rock ‘n’ roll map backed by strong, growing support from fans and media alike. With singles/videos such as “Husk.” “I’m Not Well,” “JOY,” and “Manic In Me,” the clip for which was filmed in Iceland, a key source of influence for Album 2, it became increasingly clear that Holley is an artist prepared to shed protective layers  — an artist with plenty to say and a particular way of tapping into thoughts, feelings, and fears. And now, with Album Number 3, the Bristol-based singer/songwriter/guitarist has done even more to bind music and personal message into a cohesive body of work — nine compelling tracks recorded quickly with a brand new rhythm section (drummer Finn McClean and bassist Jack Henley, a longstanding friend), plus a trusted team member in producer/mixer Ade Bushby, who helmed the desk on both previous outings. From the very start, the intention was to keep instinct, musical integrity and the chemistry between the players right at the fore, with no second-guessing of the market and no attempt to stem or to edit the musical flow — a flow that takes in synths, distorted vocals plus a battery of left-field sounds (inspired by Bristol’s alternative DIY culture), along with a broader range of lyrical subject matter. After 18 months spent searching for that “magic sweet spot,” this is Black Foxxes in the raw, unfiltered, unfussed with. No rules, no labels, all on the line.
