Fronted by the charismatic person Edith Coleslaw aka Ashley Pooler, Abertooth Lincoln recently dropped their debut single for Riot Records, Hell House, and now the accompanying music video.
Hailing from Dayton, Ohio Abertooth Lincoln are an aggressive, spacey hardcore progressive punk band. Their music is heavy, weird, complicated and can flip genres within seconds. But the bottom line is they are unique and refreshing.
“This is the story of two naive but rebellious teenagers that magically get transported to a world within a comic book, in which they are subjected to the horrors of an evangelical hell house attraction. To save others from experiencing the same trauma and judgement, the teens take matters into their own hands, waging a bloody battle against the “demons” of Hell House. Hell Houses are a real thing, managed by evangelical churches in every state. They are run by people who get off on judging and condemning their neighbors, and pretending to be actual demons dragging sinners to hell. It’s violent indoctrination and fear tactics used on teens, and we thought it’d be fun if the people that do this sorta thing got sent to hell for a change.” Abertooth Lincoln
In a world where punk rock seems to change definition more times than most people change their minds, Australian NSW South-Coast based Radio Rejects stick to the true definition of the genre. Influenced by old school 4-Chord and 90s skate punk, the Rejects push the true ideology that punk rock is all about fun and dare we say rad times – but sometimes music can be used to address a darker side.
Their new single Monsters, was written as an anti-bullying song by Radio Rejects singer Smith. At a young age Smith was bullied and picked on a lot, which over the years ended up with him developing some inner demons and mental health issues.
These issues contributed to him being somewhat of an introvert and shy, which was often mistaken as being arrogant, when truth is, his inner head space would cause him to think people didn’t like him without giving them a chance to prove otherwise. This gave off an impression of him being “cold”. The song focuses on the long term effects bullying can cause, and as in a lot of cases, the people you consider to be a Monsters were made over the years of being treated like garbage.
Melbourne-based alternate hard rockers Cicadastone have released their new single Out of Sight via Golden Robot Records. Out of Sight is the follow up to the recently release singles Dying In Sunshine and Box Of Anger. All three tracks are taken from their upcoming 2021 album Cold Chamber.
“Out of sight is a song about self-discovery and challenging yourself to know who you really are. To admit your faults and be ok with it. We are who we are even if we wanna be something else. Look within yourself and ask that question. Are you happy with who you are? You should be, but It’s easy to lose sight of a vision and hard to stay focused on your goal. We’re always cascading out of sight….’’ Cicadastone
