SIGNS OF THE SWARM Release New Track and Video for “Unbridled”

American deathcore band SIGNS OF THE SWARM release their new song and music video for “Unbridled” today via their new label home Century Media Records. Purchase and stream the track, HERE, and watch the video below.

SIGNS OF THE SWARM states, “To commemorate our signing with Century Media, we wanted to offer something truly special – ‘Unbridled’.

This track is a taste of everything that we have to offer, reaching for new levels of intensity and keeping what makes us SOTS. If you like riffs, blast beats, and breakdowns don’t skip this one.

Lyrically, we want to reach out to our fans from a different perspective in hopes that the song pulls you in and doesn’t let go. Channeling fear, aggression and defeat into a single track, “Unbridled” is a violent and energetic piece that we expect you to bang your head to.”

Just last week, SIGNS OF THE SWARM announced signing to their new label home Century Media Records stating, “For SOTS, 2021-2022 has been a time of growth and change. We released our latest record last year and knew that we had to hit the road hard. Since that time we’ve performed over 200 times in at least 15 countries, which gave us a very unique opportunity. The band went out searching for the perfect fit to match our vision, and once we met with the Century Media team it was an instant sync.

We chose this time to announce our partnership – after we completed our hefty tour schedule around the globe and joined forces with GoodFight MGMT – so that we can bring you the very best that we have to offer. With that said, we are pleased to release our latest single and music video, “Unbridled” to celebrate this next chapter of Signs of the Swarm!

With a bright future in sight, we are proud to be a part of the Century Media family and cannot wait to show you more of what we have been up to.” 

Pittsburgh’s Signs of the Swarm aren’t just any band, they’re a once-a-generation beacon that radiates the sounds that surrounded them, preserving history by reframing it. On their fourth LP, Absolvere, they’re bleak without being blackened, smashing without being slam, and downtempo as a choice rather than a stylistic confine. And as many of their deathcore peers experiment with adding singing, often gruff in tone, they add a more ethereal style that soothes.

The band contrasts that with some of the most brutal moments in their eight-year career, with riffs more punishing than pensive and a rhythm section that frames them in creatively cacophonic ways. Above it all, they’re utilizing vocalist David Simonich monstrous range in a much fuller capacity than on his debut, 2019’s Vital Deprivation. That transitional album found the band experimenting to re-find their footing, which here lands on solid ground through the addition of guitarist Jeff Russo, a former bandmate of Simonich’s Improvidence. The proof is in the placing, with Absolvere landing at #15 on “Current Hard Music Albums,” #21 on “Top New Artist Albums” and #139 on “Heatseekers.”

Indeed, sometimes contrast can be a perfect complement, but more often that effect is achieved when paired with something more in-line. So it is when Ben Duerr (Shadow of Intent) and Alex Erian (Despised Icon) join the band for growls and shouts, where Signs of the Swarm filter their guests’ bands through their own sound. Instead of taking away from their identity, it expands it.

They’re steadily expanding their global reach, too. In the few short months since Absolvere’s release, Signs of the Swarm have toured with the likes of Fit for an Autopsy, Born of Osiris and Shadow of Intent. Forthcoming domination campaigns of Europe and Australia will be added to their tenure with Aborted, Lorna Shore, Brand of Sacrifice and more. Forget the signs, the swarm is already here, and it’s growing larger and louder every day.

SUICIDE SILENCE Releases New Song and Video For “You Must Die”

SUICIDE SILENCE releases new track and music video for “You Must Die” today via Century Media Records. The track, which is off the band’s forthcoming release, Remember… You Must Die, is available on all digital platforms today. Check out the music video below.

“’You Must Die’ reminds us that time is merciless. Every second the clock ticks we grow closer to death and what happens after our short bout with time is a total mystery. ‘You Must Die’ was written as a reminder to remember death and to not let time be our master,” states SUICIDE SILENCE about “You Must Die”.

SUICIDE SILENCE’s forthcoming 7th studio album, Remember… You Must Die, was produced and mixed by Taylor Young (NAILS, Xibalba, Vitriol, etc.) and will be released the first quarter of 2023. For the artwork, the band enlisted renowned Necrosurrealist artist David Van Gough to visualize the concept.

Before the album release, SUICIDE SILENCE will hit the road with Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage for The Omens Fall 2022 U.S. tour. Then, this November SUICIDE SILENCE will join After The Burial for their Impericon Never Say Die! Tour 2022” co-headline European tour. Tickets are available for the co-headline tour, HERE.

DISTANT Signs To Century Media Records

Century Media Records is thrilled to announce the signing of DISTANT, the multinational juggernaut that emerged from Rotterdam, The Netherlands as well as from Bratislava, Slovakia.

“We are beyond excited for signing with one of the greatest metal record labels on earth, Century Media Records. With their perfect foundation for the next sagas of our lore, you can expect a lot more dark and evil albums coming from our camp,” state DISTANT.

To celebrate their signing, DISTANT hare released their new track “Exoflith”, which is available on all digital platforms now. Check out the music video below.

Since their inception in 2014 and the release of their inaugural EP, Tsukuyomi, DISTANT unleashed two studio albums, Tyrannotophia (2019) and Aeons of Oblivion (2021), as well as two EPs, Dawn of Corruption (2020) and Dusk of Anguish (2021). However, DISTANT have been breaking through the confines of deathcore and created no less than their own multidisciplinary universe by adding the fictional novel The Rise of Tyrannotophia into the mix that accompanies Aeons of Oblivion.

In the past, the band have played shows all over the world such as the Chaos and Carnage Tour with LORNA SHORE, SUICIDE SILENCE, Carnifex, Upon A Burning Body and AngelMaker (USA) and have supported their friends in LORNA SHORE for a handful of shows in the U.K. For a list of the band’s upcoming tour dates, see below:

This song I wrote when war got started. I can’t stay silent about all this situation. We made a simple video clip just to say what we think about the war and wanted to post it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out quickly. This song is not the usual. It’s not like us. But this is the cry of my soul. War is always a huge tragedy for everyone. Please stop the violence and this war. I know many of you wanted to hear something different from us. But right now we want do it this way and sounds like that. This is our message. I am from Russia. I love my country, I love our fans from there and I can’t believe it goes so far from 2014. God save us all. Stay human.
