THE PLOT IN YOU have announced that their new album for Fearless Records, ‘DISPOSE’, will be released on 16th February, 2018. The Ohio rock band – composed of Landon Tewers (Vocals), Josh Childress (Guitar), Ethan Yoder (Bass) and Mathis Arnell (Drums) – have crafted a truly unique take on modern rock, transcending genres from metalcore to alternative. With ‘DISPOSE’, the group is ready to undertake a new journey with a fresh vision, taking a collective step forward, which showcases the group’s eclectic style and creative flair. Produced by Drew Fulk [Motionless In White, I Prevail, Crown The Empire], the 10-track album explores the lasting effects of a toxic relationship, and serves as The Plot In You’s most personal record to date.

The record’s announcement comes alongside evocative new single ‘NOT JUST BREATHING’, which is a track that is indicative of the band’s new direction, moving into a truly epic musical realm: Frontman Landon states “Not Just Breathing is about cutting ties with someone who is dead weight in your life and dragging you down, always hoping for the best for that person but coming to terms with the fact that you need to move on with your life in a separate direction from them.”

‘FEEL NOTHING’ was the first track from the album to be revealed over the summer when the band announced their signing to Fearless. The music video has racked up almost 2 million views in a mere few months.

“DISPOSE is our proudest release so far, it’s almost a complete restart on the band. The music has continued to naturally evolve in the way that we have wanted it to for a long time and we have a complete team at Fearless helping to roll it out which has been refreshing.”

Melbourne Pop Punk legends Loose End are today dropping their brand new filmclip for single ‘Without a Trace’! The video transports the viewer to a wedding where something just isn’t right – the bride doesn’t seem to have eyes for the groom, but instead, the singer of the Wedding band – is there – was there – something there between them?

‘Without a Trace’ will see it’s release on Wednesday February 14 on Spotify and iTunes.

The band released their debut EP in September last year, recorded by Roman Koester from The Red Shore and Thy Art Is Murder.They celebrated its release with a damn-near sold out headline show at the Reverence Hotel and playing their largest show ever at a sold out Wrangler Studios. Loose End are currently writing their sophomore release – to be recorded with Chris Vernon from Belle Haven.

Ben Smalley, vocalist for the band, is more than keen to get this new track and video out. “After waiting over a year, multiple line up changes, setback after setback, we are beyond excited to finally release Without A Trace!”

The idea for the track came along in early 2016 and we recorded in September that year. “The track was recorded, mixed and mastered by the incredibly talented Roman Koester. For some reason the hook without a trace just seemed to stick with me. I really loved the ring it had to it. I’m not sure where it came from but it definitely wasn’t from my mum being an Anthony LaPaglia fan.”


The idea to have a wedding clip has been bouncing around since the studio. Originally it was going to be a lot more serious, but when the band teamed up with Zach from Hoodwolf Productions, it was his idea for the Wedding Singer influence idea. Ben said “On the day of filming we had around 25 extras on set all dressing in 80’s gear having a party, it was a pretty bizarre moment. Everything that Zach did with the video just blew away all our expectations. We couldn’t be happier with how the video turned out.”

With half the band from rural Victoria and the other half from the inner suburbs of Melbourne, Loose End are for fans of Trophy Eyes, WSTR, Moose Blood and Comeback Kid. Loose End is a fresh sound for your ears – the outfit blend pop punk sounds with some heavier elements and pop vocals to create something inventive and more than fun for the listener.

‘Without a Trace’ will see it’s release on Wednesday February 14 on Spotify and iTunes. For more information, check out Loose End’s facebook page.



Perth’s Sparrow are set to release ‘Digital People’ into the world! Friday April 6 will see the five-track EP set free in the digital and real world, with the video for their new single ‘Red’ out today. Pre-Orders for the EP go live this Friday February 16 and the single ‘Red’ will be live for streaming from that date as well.

The video for single ‘Red’ is a stunning hybrid of Gorillaz-style animation and video and effects. The hard-out track provides the soundtrack to a mile-a-minute paced filmclip – which shows one person’s wish to go on a one-way trip to Mars.

Vocalist Sean Hendry says of the song’s lyrics – “I wrote the lyrics to “Red” winding down on the couch after a massive night out. One of those late-night news breaks came up about the lottery for a one-way ticket to Mars in 2020 where 24 to 40 candidates would be picked to basically inhabit Mars for the rest of their lives. Anyone could apply by submitting a 30 second video explaining why they should be chosen. It would be a new society, with new laws. I wondered what kind of people would apply for this what kind of psychological testing they’d need to get through to be chosen. The song is basically the story of one such person.”


The new EP “Digital People” has influences from early 90’s Marilyn Manson, to modern Motionless in White with heavy industrial overtones and a new edge.

SPARROW released their debut album “DEATHPOP” in the summer of 2013 and went on to play across the country, playing the popular Hyper Festival twice in Perth and the Rock the Bay festival on the east coast as well as a slew of national and international support slots including Twelve Foot Ninja, Superheist, Emery, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Dead Letter Circus, and Tonight Alive.

Vocalist Sean Hendry describes the new direction as “Darker, dirtier, grittier – I think this record is going to be a bit of a curveball. We’ve grown a lot over the past 2 years and we’ve been exploring our darker influences and playing with some really industrial dirty tones. The new record is us – bare bones, exposed and ugly.

Sparrow’s ‘Digital People’ EP will see it’s release on Friday April 6 for purchase on iTunes, Google Play and for streaming via Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music.

Japan Suicide – Santa Sangre

Alternative rockers Japan Suicide have announced their forthcoming album Santa Sangre. Ahead of this release, they are presenting the lead track ‘Circle’ with an accompanying video, produced and directed by Francesco Brunotti.
The song’s lyrics are inspired by Dave Eggers’ novel ‘The Circle’ and the video by scenes from the film ‘The Wicker Man’, such as the procession and the sect, relating to the novel in a different way, transposing hi-tech dystopia into an ancient ritual.

Based in the central Italian city of Terni, Japan Suicide is a five-piece comprised of Stefano Bellerba (vocals, guitar), Leonardo Mori (synth), Matteo Luciani (bass), Saverio Paiella (guitar), and Daniele Cruccolini (drums). Formed in 2010, they united over their love of Joy Division, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, and Depeche Mode.

Their music is also strongly influenced by Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Japan, The Damned, Interpol, Suicide, CSI, CCCP, and Massimo Volume.

“We have finally produced our new album ‘Santa Sangre’, which was inspired by Alejandro Jodorowsky’s movie and Roberto Bolaño’s novel ‘2666’, all the while moving from echoes of British post-punk to a sound replete with more psychedelic and shoegaze textures,” says Stefano Bellerba. “This is a delicate, but necessary step for us: we tried to matchthe quality of our previous album ‘We Die in Such a Place’, while also adding new sounds from our past work in order to achieve a condensed powerful opera and, at the same time, a sound that is capable of achieving different listening levels.”

This album follows up the 2017 single ‘This be the verse’ released on the Dark Italia compilation Sparkles in the Dark vol​.​4.
The ‘Santa Sangre’ album will be released on February 14, 2018 via Unknown Pleasures Records, with a self-released vinyl edition to follow, featuring a slightly different tracklist. Japan Suicide has launched a crowdfunding campaign via MusicRaiser towards the vinyl release, which can be found here.
