ICYMI today, Sum 41 released a new music video for the guitar-charged rock anthem, “Goddamn I’m Dead Again!” The music video, reminiscent of past videos like “Fat Lip” and “In Too Deep,” allows hard-core fans of the band, affectionately known as “Skumfuks,” to be a part of Sum 41 history forever. Complete with smashed guitars, circle pits, custom graffiti, an appearance from Left Shark and a few scenes that pay homage to classic Sum 41 video memories, this video truly brings to life what it means to be a head banging and continuously rocking Sum 41 fan. As a further testament to the support this band has seen from fans, Sum 41 has been nominated for three awards at the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards. The nominations include Artist of the Year, Music Video of the Year for “Fake My Own Death,” and Best Drummer for Frank Zummo. Fans can vote for these categories and more at http://www.altpress.com/vote.
Bad Seed Rising will remain on the road forever! The band will hit the tour circuit with Eyes Set to Kill this spring, and then return to Warped Tour for the second summer in a row. Check out the band’s single “Fighting Gravity” and their recent interview with Buzzfeed. Their Roadrunner debut Awake in Color is out now.
The band is playing Diesel in Pittsburgh, PA on 5/14.
Seether will release their new album Poison the Parish on May 12. The band will be touring extensively in support of the album, which features the riffy and tense smash “Let You Down.”
Guitarist Clint Lowery will augment the band’s line-up throughout the upcoming trek, adding his signature axe-work to Seether’s new songs and deep repertoire.
“We’ve been working on some upgrades to the production and the live sound, which includes welcoming our brother, Clint Lowery into the fold to help us thicken up that live sound experience,” Seether vocalist/guitarist Shaun Morgan said. “We want this tour to be exciting and different — a departure from what people expect from us, while retaining the qualities that make us unique, in order to entertain the fans. It’s going to be loud, heavy, old school Seether with a couple of twists thrown in to keep things exciting.”
The band will appear at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, PA on 5/19.

CARCASS continues to tour in support of Surgical Steel, released in September 2013. The record came in at #41 on the US Billboard Top 200 Chart, just narrowly avoiding the dreaded “Top 40 Band” moniker. Even with their impressive back catalogue, Surgical Steel has given the band their highest charting and possibly most critically acclaimed record to date.
CARCASS has released several classic albums over the years, including Decibel Magazine “Hall of Fame” inductees Heartwork and Necroticism – Descanting The Insalubrious, and their influence has changed the face of extreme metal with every consecutive release. Whether it was inventing gore-grind (see Reek Of Putrefaction, Symphonies Of Sickness) or creating the template for melodic death metal (see Heartwork), CARCASS has always made records by which bars were set and rules were broken. Upon the band’s dismantling in 1996, fans mourned the loss of the seminal act and longed that the group would return again one day. In 2007, the metal world got its wish as CARCASS reformed to play several sold-out reunion shows around the globe. Once again re-motivated to administer a shot of cynicism and infectious riffs into the arm of a sickly metal scene, founding members Bill Steer and Jeff Walker began writing what would become the latest output of their highly influential career,Surgical Steel. Only the choicest of cuts were made, and blood sweat and tears were shed to bring us a record worthy of the CARCASS legacy. In short, Surgical Steel is just what the doctor ordered.
