Night In Gales Sign With Lifeforce, New Album Due Out In November

Night In Gales have signed with Lifeforce Records and will issue their new album “Five Scars” through the label on November 08th in North America (a day earlier in Europe.) Band guitarist Jens Basten commented on the signing with the following:

“We’re back, fuck yeah! 17 years after initially cooking our very own brew of German Melodic Death Metal, there’s a new Night In Gales album coming your way!
Five Scars” will definitely be a feast for the melo-death gourmets who might be fed up with all the wannabes who led this great metal style into total insignificance! Lifeforce Records proved themselves as true epicureans, hence we are proud to be part of the Lifeforce family now! “Five Scars” will be out on November 7th, and we’re looking forward to fire up the kitchen with a strong new partner aside!”

Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri will be appearing in an upcoming documentary dubbed “Dreamchasers“. The film apparently centers on professional gamers, musicians and aspiring pro wrestlers “chasing their dreams.” My dream is to not be up at 8am typing this, so apparently I won’t be making a cameo.

You can find a teaser for the project below:

Emery ‘Best Of’ Release In The Works

Sating the no doubt massive public demand, an Emery ‘best of’ compilation is being prepared for an October 18th release date through Tooth & Nail. Further details on the outing are pending.

Sourvein Rejoined By Original Bassist

Sourvein have been rejoined by original bassist Joshua “JC Fari” Crapo. He will make his return to the stage with the band during their upcoming October West Coast dates.

TesseracT Working On “Eden” Music Video

TesseracT have a new music video for their song “Eden” in the works. The band have enlisted director Ganesh Rao (Empyrean) to helm the shoot with band bassist Amos Williams offering the following on it:

“We like to keep a close eye on what’s happening in the underground and the scene from which we were born. One day a jaw-dropping, stunning video appears on I mean beautiful, cinematic, and emotive. Ganesh Rao created not only a great example of ‘djent’ with his entirely self created EMPYREAN project, but as director of the video, made something that has truly risen the bar for independent creators.

Now, as it happened we were looking for a director to work with us for our upcoming video for ‘Eden‘, so it was a no-brainer to approach Ganesh to try and make it happen. We’re very excited to see what we can create together. The hope is that it’s a piece of art, not a bullshit piece of marketing that does nothing but to self serve and ego boost the band. A lasting composition that can be enjoyed both visually and aurally. It won’t be MTV, but like all things TESSERACT, it should be intense, emotive, and enthralling.”

The track listing has been unveiled for the special edition CD/DVD version of Staind‘s forthcoming self-titled effort. Here’s how that version is expected to shape up:

01 – “Not Again
02 – “Eyes Wide Open
03 – “Falling
04 – “Wannabe
05 – “Throw It All Away
06 – “Now
07 – “The Bottom
08 – “Take A Breath
09 – “Paper Wings
10 – “Something To Remind You
11 – “Spleen” (Live)
12 – “For You” (Live)

The accompanying DVD will feature a bonus making of the album documentary. “Staind” is set for a September 13th release date through Atlantic.
