Muse release video for new track Dead Inside

Muse 2015

Hot on the heels of sharing new track “Psycho”, Muse have released a lyric video for another new song “Dead Inside.”

The track is set to feature on Muse’s forthcoming new album, Drones, scheduled for release on the 8th of June.

Frontman Matt Bellamy says of the song: “This is where the story of the album begins. The protagonist loses hope and becomes vulnerable to the dark forces introduced in Psycho and the next few songs – before eventually defecting, revolting and overcoming these dark forces later in the story.”

Von Hertzen Brothers share lyric video for new track Trouble

Von Hertzen Brothers - Trouble

Von Hertzen Brothers have released a lyric video for their new track “Trouble.”

The song is the second tune to be shared from the band’s forthcoming new album, New Day Rising, scheduled for release on the 23rd of March via Spinefarm Records.

An official video for the title track was released back in February.

Siblings Mikko, Kie & Jonne Von Hertzen recorded the album with regular drummer Mikko Kaakkuriniemi and keyboard player Juha Kuoppalaat at The Farm in Vancouver. Grammy-nominated Canadian producer Garth ‘GGGarth’ Richardson (Biffy Clyro, Rage Against The Machine and more) was in the producer’s chair and the album was mixed by Randy Staub (Metallica, Alice In Chains.)

Says Mikko of the new album: “Working with GGGarth and Randy felt like we finally got to operate with true maestros – the crème de la crème of Canadian know-how. All bullshit aside, the end result is all that matters, and quite frankly, I’ve never been prouder of anything we’ve done. Together we raised the bar to a whole new level, and only time will tell if we’ll ever be able to beat that or raise the bar even more. I mean, we are talking some serious Sergey Bubka heights here!”
