Things went a bit haywire in the Rock Sins camp last week, so there was no video of the week contest. As a result, we’ve decided to double the numbers this week. That’s right, a whopping TEN videos to choose from.
First up in this bumper edition of the Rock Sins video of the week are prog masters Dream Theater. Their most recent album The Astonishing was met with something of a mixed reaction but wow’ed our team when they saw it performed in the flesh, and the video for one of the closing tracks Our New World is the first video on the vote this week.
Following Dream Theater are two excellent bands from closer to home. London alt-rockers Heel’s video for Nothing New is a brilliant tongue in cheek pop at the ever changing trends of the music industry, while their near neighbours Press To Meco take a very different approach with the video for their new single Autopsy – both very well worth your viewing and listening time!
If there’s a band out there at the moment who know how to make fun, engaging and dramatic videos, it’s Panic! At The Disco and Brendan and co have done it once again with Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time. It needs no explanation, just watch it for yourselves. Rounding off the first half of the entries are another homegrown act, Kent rockers The Alchemy, with the title track and video for their new album Modern Age. Judging by the video we think The Alchemy like their mood lighting, but don’t let that detract from an enjoyable video and very good song!
Drumming god Joey Jordison is never one to stay dormant for too long and he has resurfaced with his new band Vimic, who have got a cracking single in the shape of She Sees Everything, so the video for that is one of our contenders this week. Another new band for Rock Sins, Texan tech / metalcore outfit Moments Till Fall are also included in this weeks’ contest, with their video for new song Against The Current coming ahead of their new album Truth Favors The Brave on the 27th of May.
Continuing with this weeks’ entries are post-hardcore favourites Thrice, who’ve just announced they’ll be returning to London in August (alongside appearing at Reading and Leeds) and they’ve just dropped the video for their brand new single Black Honey, which is entry no8 in this weeks’ video of the week. Joining Thrice are one of the British “hype” bands of the year, Black Foxxes, with the first single from their upcoming début album. I’m Not Well sees the Devonshire three piece showing exactly why many are touting them as the next Biffy Clyro.
Last but not least are UK rockers Trash Boat, who are gearing up for their new album (produced by no less than Dan Campbell from The Wonder Years). Their new single and video for How Selfish I Seem gives a great taste of what is to come.
….and breathe. So there we are, our biggest video of the week so far. Ten bands, seven days, one winner. The choice is yours! Voting closes on the 25th of May at 12pm sharp.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
