SALEM ii

As if the ever evolving style and sprawling narratives of Creeper didn’t already keep him busy enough, Will Gould reacted to last year’s initial lockdown by delving into the archives to complete the debut ep from his side project Salem.

Now the second chapter in the Salem story emerges from the underworld with the news that they’ll release their new ep ‘Salem II’ on May 7th and now share the first taste of the ep in the shape of the new single ‘Draculads’.

‘Draculads’ opens with the kind of larger-than-life b-movie horror love letter that can only come from Gould’s poison pen: “maybe the blood of jesus christ is laced upon your lips / i get a little closer to god and too drunk each time we kiss.” it sets the tone for a blitzkrieg rush of melodic punk and raucous rock ‘n’ roll that only stops for breath for the song’s cabaret croon breakdown. elsewhere, the EP builds upon the style that Salem established with their debut. from the tongue-in-cheek reference to the Smiths on the opening track ‘William“, it was really something’ to the closing ‘Heaven Help Me’, Salem play it fast, frenetic and fun. as with the best old school punk eps, ‘Salem II’ is an escapist rush of attention that commands your attention for 15 minutes before it’s time to drop the needle back to the start.

Expected release: 7th may 2021 On Roadrunner Records

Pittsburgh’s Code Orange have been making frantic, math-damaged hardcore for more than a decade, since they were literal children operating under the name Code Orange Kids. With each album, they’ve been getting bigger and heavier, to the point where they’ve now been playing metal festivals in stadiums and collaborating with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor. On Underneath, they’ve embraced the challenge of making grand, cathartic big-tent rock music without losing their punishing harshness. They’ve succeeded. Underneath has soaring choruses, jittery IDM drill-beats, scuzzed-out nu-metal groove-attacks, and riffs hard enough to clothesline the skin right off of your skull.

our new album ‘Underneath’ is available now on Roadrunner Records.

Any fans of 90’s grunge or alt rock will love this.

The new EP from the awesome Milk Teeth, we’re big fans of their noisey-grunge like punk music. Following on from their brilliant debut album Vile ChildThe lead single Owning Your Okayness is a pop-fuelled, stomp-along jam with an infectious chorus.

Here is our brand new music video for ‘Prism’. We filmed it in an abandoned care home where we spent a day freaking ourselves out in the hallways and abandoned rooms of the house. ‘Prism’ is taken from our new EP ‘Be Nice’ which is out now on Roadrunner Records.

Roadrunner is the home of the bands that we grew up listening to and who have influenced our own sound today,” says vocalist/bassist Becky Blomfield. “They work with the best and we are so stoked to be welcomed as part of the next breed of artists with the potential to inspire the next generation. Our teenage selves were kicking about in little towns not knowing where we would end up, and almost a decade later we can say Slipknot are our label mates. Not bad for a bunch of kids from Stroud.”
