‘Under Your Spell' was released on 9th June by Metropolis Records.
‘Under Your Spell’ is the 7th album by the Birthday Massacre, and with it comes eleven songs that reveal a side of the Canadian band that audiences may not be familiar with. Driven with the band’s signature, unique blend of spiralling synth melodies, walls of guitar and evocative vocals, the new songs range from dark, aggressive anthems to danceable, pretty pop and hit all the bases that audiences have come to expect. However, there is also a rawness to the emotion expressed, an openness and vulnerability that feels new.
One thing that is clearer than ever, however, is the tight bond that exists between the band members and their willingness to explore heartbreak and loss together. With these songs, they have entered the darkness of their most fragile emotions and returned with a cohesive and detailed musical portrait that captures both the anger and hope that exist within a moment in time.
The Birthday Massacre continue to make music that is unique to them, once again managing to create an album that somehow feels so familiar, yet challenges the listener to continue alongside them on their ever-changing, ever-growing journey.

Canadian goth rock / metal band Van Halst announce they will be performing on this year's Metalocalypstick Festival in Valemount, BC on August 27th. The two day non for profit festival was formed to support women in metal, punk, hardcore and heavy bands! All bands on the festival line up feature one or more female members that are all Canadian and all power with special out of country guests Brazil's Nervosa headlining. 2% of proceeds from the festival will be donated to Girls Rock Camp and Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter. Full details and line up can be found at http://www.metalocalypstickfest.rocks.
“We are very excited to be performing at Metalocolypstick Fest. There is such a limited presence of women in rock and metal so we’re really looking forward to meeting all the other bands over the weekend. This is an important festival being that the majority of festivals we perform at are male dominated, usually we’re the only female led band on the bill. We’re looking forward to watching the other bands and encourage people to come out to beautiful BC to take part in the festival.”

Metalocalypstick Festival will be one of Van Halst's stops during their Western Canadian tour presented by PureGrainAudio.com. The tour will kick off at OurFest in Nevis, AB on August 20th and wrap up with a home-town show in Edmonton, AB on September 4th.
