MERRIMENT PREMIERES"TREMENDOUS LOVE" MUSIC VIDEOON ALTPRESS.COM

Tyler, TX-based indie-pop outfit Merriment is premiering their dreamy new music video for “Tremendous Love”. The gorgeous video was directed by Mutemath’s Darren King and can be seen now on AltPress.com or at Youtube.com/equalvision.
"This song is about stubbornness and pride and not being able to admit that you’re sorry or that you’ve screwed up," reveals vocalist Christie DuPree. "I wanted this video to convey a simple honesty between two people and give you a glimpse into their story without conveying too much. We had so much fun shooting this and going over dance moves and (me) messing them up a bunch before getting it right!"

The band also recently released a video for “Now I’m Silver” featuring never-before-seen footage of the band recording their recently released debut album, Sway. The video can be seen at Merriment.merchnow.com, where the band’s new vinyl for Sway is also now available. This is the first pressing of Sway and is limited to 500 on black vinyl. Sway was recorded in the band’s hometown, with Charlie Brand of Miniature Tigers serving as producer.

The stunning album features twelve tracks filled with lush harmonies, all serenely delivered through the sweet, angelic vocals of DuPree. Merriment flawlessly pairs hypnotic indie pop melodies with the warmth of folk-tinged Americana elements to create a bright yet delicate and graceful blend that is all their own.

Better Off Premiere New Single “Meth Head” on Diffuser 7” Vinyl / Digital Single Out October 27, 2014 via Equal Vision Records Better Off to Appear w/ New Found Glory, We Are The In Crowd, Fireworks, Real Friends + more on Fall Tour Dates

 

Better Off premiered the A-side “Meth Head” of their new 7” single on Diffuser.fm today. The “Meth Head” 7” comes out October 27, 2014 and is the band’s first release on their new label, Equal Vision Records.  The Arun Bali (Saves the Day) produced 7” features “Meth Head” as well as the B-side “I Was Better 10 Years Ago”.

 

Listen to “Meth Head”
Diffuser has also launched a contest to win a copy of the new 7”, details on how to enter can be found at the track premiere. “‘Meth Head’ is about self-destructive behavior,” singer/guitarist Luke Granered tells Diffuser. “At the time we wrote this, I had been watching ‘Breaking Bad’ and was obsessed with Walter White’s character. He is the definition of destructive behavior.” “Meth Head” follows the release of Better Off’s 2013 debut LP (I Think) I’m Leaving, the album’s stirring, well-crafted songs caught the attention of fans and critics alike, and felt remarkably mature for a young band. Better Off have also secured a coveted spot on the fall Glamour Kills tour alongside New Found Glory, We Are The In Crowd and Fireworks, as well as dates with Real Friends and more (all tour dates below). The members of Better Off are no stranger to the Nashville alternative rock scene, having played in various other projects in the area in recent years.  Comparisons to the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Brand New, and Knapsack seem fitting, yet Better Off provide enough of their own take on the sound to create something unique. 700 clear purple, and 300 clear orange copies of the “Meth Head” 7” will be available, with preorder expected to launch in the coming weeks. Better Off is Luke Granered (guitar/vocals), Jon Dalman (bass), Charles Miller (drums) and Hunter Walls (guitar).Track List: 01) Meth Head 02) I Was Better 10 Years AgoTour Dates: Oct 28 Tulsa, OK @ White Flag Oct 30 Albuquerque, NM @ Sunshine Theater* Oct 31 Las Vegas, NV @ Hard Rock Cafe* Nov 01 Anaheim, CA @ House of Blues* Nov 02 Sacramento, CA @ Ace of Spades* Nov 04 Seattle, WA @ The Showbox* Nov 05 Portland, OR @ Hawthorne Theatre* Nov 07 San Francisco, CA @ Regency Ballroom* Nov 08 Santa Cruz, CA @ The Catalyst* Nov 09 San Diego, CA @ The Epicentre^ Nov 10 Mesa, AZ @ Nile Theatre^ Nov 12 Dallas, TX @ The Door^ * = w/New Found Glory, We Are The In Crowd and Fireworks ^ = w/Real Friends, Neck Deep, Cruel Hand and Have Mercy

BRENT WALSH OF I THE MIGHTYPREMIERES NEW SONG “FREE”DEBUT SOLO ALBUM‘7’ OUT NOVEMBER 10

Brent Walsh of I the Mighty is now premiering the first track from his debut full-length solo album, 7. The music video for “Free” - a stunning, piano driven ballad with lush harmonies - can be seen now at Youtube.com/equalvision.
"The song "Free" relates to a few different people from my past," shares Walsh. “People who have caused me both pain and personal growth. The “light that enlightened me” is actually those individuals who inspired the song. It’s the most recently written song on the new record, as well as one of my favorites - and it definitely shows off my love for harmonies.”
The video for “Free” was filmed in San Mateo, CA with director Ernie Gilbert (Bayside, letlive., Set It Off). Pre-orders for 7 have also launched today through MerchNOW.
7, which will be released on November 10 via Equal Vision Records, was recorded with producer Jon Devoto of The Matches. A video introduction to the album, featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Walsh recording the album, can also be found HERE.
With I the Mighty, Walsh has toured and shared stage with the likes of Coheed And Cambria, Deftones, The Dear Hunter, Say Anything, Eisley, letlive., and the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, where the band performed daily on both the Kevin Says Stage and at the Acoustic Basement Tent.
I the Mighty is currently writing for their sophomore album, due out next year. Their debut full-length, Satori, is available now, along with a recent three-song digital single release “Love Your Sin”, which was accompanied by a music video that can be seen HERE.
