The Jokies latest onslaught on the rock world is packed with blues, country and of course, an endless amount of high octane of rock n' roll for you to eat up!

The track is the title track to their forthcoming debut EP. Their video for previous single "Comfort You" saw the band turning heads with their blend of weird-punk inspired by the off-kilter swagger of Pulled Apart By Horses, the math-trickery of At The Drive In and the crushing riffs of Every Time I Die.

Clifton, New Jersey-based melodic metal outfit Julius Seizure have just released their new single "Sixth and Falling" along with the B-side, "Second Coming." The tracks are cut from their August 2013 release, Trials. Commenting on the band and the video for "Sixth and Falling," video director Patrick Canavan said, "Julius Seizure is one of those bands with unlimited energy, which is why I like working with them. They got out of a five hour car ride with five guys crammed into one Jeep, and blew the crew and I away on the first take. You don't see guys with this level of intensity often. The concept of this video revolves around a demon character named 'rage.' We see his awakening, and follow him through the night as he begins his hunt for human prey. During this we will be flashing to another character I've been calling 'The Painter'. His sanity level is dropping rapidly as he tries to finish his painting. I don't want to give anything away just yet, but I will say that Rage and The Painter will converge at the end for an intense closing scene."
The new video from Secrets titled "Maybe Next May" features fan submitted content. The track can be found on the band's latest album, Fall Figures, released this past July.

Garage pop quartet, Typefighter recently released their latest video for "You When You're Older" from their latest release The End Of Everything. An arresting rock 'n' roll record filled with pounding rhythms and roaring guitars, Typefighter's full-length release delivers a big, snappy sound that lives up to the raucous live sets Typefighter has brought to the stage, on shared bills with bands including The So So Glos, Here We Go Magic, Givers and We Were Promised Jetpacks. For all its snazzy melodies and thundering drumming, The End of Everything isn't a record about teenage dreams and rock and roll excess. It's a record built from the hard realities of adulthood, accentuated by a sonic adventurousness cultivated by guitarist Thomas Orgren as an engineer at DC's legendary Inner Ear Studios and driven along by the forceful rhythm section of drummer Will Waikart and bassist John Scoops. Typefighter has forged an album that makes melodic sense out of emotional chaos.

Today, Swedish death metal masters Diabolical premiere their new video "Oracle." Guitarist Carl Stjärnlöv comments: "The concept of the 'Oracle' song and the Oracle chapter of the Book of Neogenesis is very special. It has a deep meaning to the concept of Neogenesis and it represents a turning point in the story of the protagonist. The chapter and the song take place in a mystical place full of symbolism and we wanted to stay true to the arcane nature of the song in its visual representation. We filmed in several countries and have put a lot of effort into making this a very pleasant visual experience which we hope you will appreciate." Neogenesis is the latest record from Diabolical and comes with a book written by Carl Stjärnlöv with each chapter represented by each song on the album.

A lot of people can relate to that."

¡Pendejo! is a four-piece heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their Latino roots, El Pastuso and Jaap 'Monchito' Melman started blending heavy riffage, pounding drums, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish about the weirdest stories in life, and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet. After releasing its full-length debut Cantos a la Vida in 2010, ¡Pendejo! recorded its second full-length album Atacames with producer Pieter Kloos in The Void Studio in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Kloos, who previously worked with bands like Motorpsycho, Barkmarket and Ween, and with Dutch heavy acts like Peter Pan Speedrock and 35007, convinced the band to record their album the old fashioned way, recording most of the material live. This resulted in a daring album containing 10 songs ranging from heavy to lighthearted, and from melodramatic to outright aggressive.
