Multi-media recording artist and producer Grimes shares the official video for 'Venus Fly.' The video, directed and edited by Grimes, also features Janelle Monáe. 'Venus Fly' is now live on Grimes' YouTube; watch the video here: http://smarturl.it/VenusFlyYT
"We used the Phantom cameras to create a feeling of time suspended," said Grimes of the inspiration behind the video.
'Venus Fly' is taken from Grimes' critically-adored album 'Art Angels' (4AD) which had prime placement on basically every End of Year list. Last year, Grimes toured the album, selling out venues and headlining festivals across the world.
InVogue Records recording artists Courage My Love have today launched “Stereo” as the first single from their forthcoming full-length debut album. The track is available at all digital music providers as well at all streaming services here.
Watch the lyric video for “Stereo” here.
Produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Of Mice and Men, Papa Roach), “Stereo” introduces a new arsenal of sounds for the Kitchener, Ontario-based trio who have made a name for themselves and built a strong following on a number of tours across North America and Europe.
“We didn’t want to be stuck underneath a female-fronted rock band ceiling,” admits guitarist / singer Mercedes Arn-Horn. “We wanted to reach beyond that constraint and see where it would take us.”
During the recording of Synesthesia, Arn-Horn’s twin sister, drummer / singer Phoenix taught herself synth programming which helped shaped the sound of the new album and gave the band a new attitude when it can to songwriting.
“We lost our ego of wanting to show off,” says Phoenix. “Now, when we write, its more about the song and what it needs. We try to make songs instead of flashy parts.”
Courage My Love were first discovered at a 2010 battle of the Bands in Stratford Ontario. The band’s independently produced video for the song “Bridges” amassed over 2 million views and the band discovered that director Kevin Smith (Silent Bob) was among the many fans that had discovered their music. The band signed with Warner Music Canada in 2011 and in 2012 Alternative Press Magazine pegged them as one of the bands to watch that year. In 2014 The band’s first two EPs, For Now and Becoming, earned them a 2014 JUNO Awards nomination for Breakthrough Group of the Year and later that summer Courage My Love joined the vans Warped Tour across North America.
More information about the new album will be released in the coming months.
Courage My Love is:
Mercedes Arn-Horn – vocals, guitar
Phoenix Arn-Horn – vocals, drums, synths
Brandon Lockwood - bass
Crystal Castles have recently unveiled new track ‘Fleece’, which was premiered last night (August 15th) by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, taken from their forthcoming new album Amnesty (I). The track is available to listen to HERE.
Moving glacially between ethereal techno pop and speaker-shattering rave breakdowns, ‘Fleece’ is another fascinating insight into the breathtaking sonic and emotional palette on Amnesty (I).
In addition, Crystal Castles have announced a special in-store performance at Rough Trade East in London on Tuesday, August 23rd. This comes ahead of the band playing the BBC Radio 1/NME Stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals later this month, before continuing to further European and North American headline and festival tour dates, with further UK shows to be announced soon.
Known for their chaotic live shows and visceral, melancholic home-made productions, Crystal Castles released a trilogy of critically acclaimed albums between 2008-2013. Their last album III was the Tumblr and Hype Machine album of the year for 2013, and NME’s #4 album of the year. In 2015 they released the stand-alone tracks ‘Frail’ and ‘Deicide’, with new member Edith Frances.
Across its 11 tracks, Amnesty (I) explores the sonic and atmospheric range that we have learned to expect from a Crystal Castles record. From gothic electronic paeans to distorted digital raves, from cinematic synth and noise crescendos to hip hop and trap infused synth pop, it is uniformly compelling, uncompromising and anchored in feeling.
Amnesty (I) is out now.

Crystal Castles have unveiled a video for frenetic new track ‘Concrete’. The track is available to stream and download now (links below). It follows a preview for a new track titled ‘Femen’ which emerged on the band’s Facebook page last week.
In addition, the duo of Ethan Kath and Edith Frances have announced a run of European and North American live dates. Having played only a small handful of shows in the past two years, the dates present an opportunity to experience new songs from Crystal Castles’ much anticipated forthcoming 4th album, the follow up to 2012’s critically acclaimed "III", with details to follow soon.

Sum 41 are back and better than ever!
The band's brand new video for "Fake My Own Death" is currently more than halfway to 1 million views (616K+), just one day after its release!
With praise from Billboard, MTV, Alternative Press, Huffington Post, Mashable, Entertainment Weekly, Loudwire, Bustle and more, "Fake My Own Death" is the first taste of the return of Sum 41 and they did it in a big way.
With their upcoming album "13 Voices", out October 7th on Hopeless Records, we see Sum 41 as an impenetrable unit putting everything they've got out into their music. The result is a dynamic, impassioned collection of melodic, guitar wielding, rock songs.
If you haven't already seen the video featuring Kim Kardashian, Bill Cosby, James Franco, Seth Rogan, Miley Cyrus, Kermit, Nyan Cat, Doge and more, check out what everyone is buzzing about below!
Directed by Marc Klasfeld, who previously worked with Sum 41 on their videos for "Fat Lip", "In Too Deep" and "The Hell Song," "Fake My Own Death" depicts the band performing on a rooftop in down-town Los Angeles, where all their worst nightmares -- including Kim Kardashian, Michael Jordan and Donald Trump -- come to attack them.
"Fake My Own Death" is the first listen off Sum 41's forthcoming new album, "13 Voices", due out October 7th via Hopeless Records. Singer Deryck Whibley shares his thoughts behind "Fake My Own Death," "I just wanted to get away from everything that I had been doing. I needed to start a new life-like faking my own death." The ten-track album marks the band's first LP in five years, following up 2011's Screaming Bloody Murder, which featured the Grammy Nominated song "Blood In My Eyes."
With the upcoming release of this album we see Sum 41 as an impenetrable unit putting everything they've got out into "13 Voices". The result is a dynamic, impassioned collection of melodic, guitar wielding, rock songs. "I can't say whether this is our best record or not, as I don't know if it is," states Whibley. "All I can say is I did the best I possibly could during the toughest period of my life".
Whibley began writing for "13 Voices" immediately following his four-month stint in the hospital. The frontman recalls, "I had to learn how to do everything again-my motor skills, learning how to play guitar again... I couldn't even walk at the time. It was really difficult, but at the same time if I didn't have a record to make, I don't think I would have recovered as quickly. Writing music gave me a purpose. I had to get better." As Whibley's health improved, so did his ability to write songs, and "13 Voices" soon began to take shape being recorded, produced and engineered by Deryck Whibley at his home in Los Angeles.
