Video Of The Week (22nd June) – Bowling For Soup, Story Untold, Counterparts and more

Rock Sins Video Of The Week

Last time out it was Canada’s finest Courage My Love who won the video of the week battle. We’re back again with another five bands who are all hoping for your votes to add them to the 2017 winners list!

We’re kicking things off this week with our old friends Bowling For Soup and their first new music video in ages, the animated Don’t Be A Dick. A song that spells out a positive life message for all in these troubled times, it’s “Angry BFS” at their best. The video also pokes fun at their longtime tour manager Dave Hale, who any long time fans of the band will be familiar with. Poor Dave! Their frontman Jaret Reddick is also heading back to UK shores in September for a solo tour, definitely one to watch out for.

Canadian pop punks Story Untold are a new band to us here at Rock Sins, but judging by their new track Delete we’ll be paying a lot more attention to them in the future. Their video for Delete covers the up’s and down’s of relationships as much good pop punk can do, with a very catchy song to back it up. Expect to see more of Story Untold in the near future.

Just announced for Bloodstock Open Air Festival 2017, UK metallers GraViL are celebrating the excellent news by releasing the video for their ear shattering track Detonate. It’s dark and brooding as one might expect, but the video brings a touch of class to proceedings. Definitely the most metal song we have up for video of the week this time, if you like it heavy then GraViL may well be your pick for this weeks’ winners!

Continuing with new UK talent, alt-metallers Faultlines are back with a new line up and a cracking new single to show just what their new singer, Ryan Booth, is capable of. The track is called Breathe, and shows the band exercising their musical chops while allowing Ryan to showcase his considerable vocal talent. We expect Faultlines to tick the boxes with a lot of people.

Finishing up this week with a dose of hardcore, Counterparts have just announced their brand new album You’re Not You Anymore will be released in September. The first taste of that album is the first single Bouquet, the video for which captures the DIY ethos of large parts of the hardcore scene very well. Judging by Bouquet, we’re very much looking forward to hearing more of the album too!

The newest Rock Sins video of the week contest closes at 12pm midday UK time on the 29th of June, so there is one week to get your votes in! Only one band can win!
