Following on from Liverpool alt-rock outfit Vulture Cult’s triumph last time out, it’s time for six more videos to do battle in Rock Sins’ video of the week!
Ash’s first appearance in Rock Sins video of the week comes courtesy of their new single Annabel, and the video for the song has a very special guest star. Recently Ash became aware of 23 year old Clement Vannini, a French skateboard wunderkind, who was born without his right leg. They felt his story summed up the track perfectly, and asked him to star in the video, and they were subsequently delighted he accepted their offer. Check out this very special video below.
With their first new music in just over a year since the release of their debut album Empty Rooms, pop-rock quartet Halflives have burst back onto the scene with their new single Crown. The video is quite a dark affair, and the song continues in the vein of the bands’ debut album, it’s a catchy track with a huge chorus. We’ll be keeping a firm eye on what comes next from Haflives, and you should too.
Next up are our friends in Nothing More, with a stay in an airport lounge with a difference in the video for Just Say When. One of the stand out tracks from their last album, The Stories We Tell Ourselves, when was the last time you were able to see dancing like this in an airport? Nothing More are heading back to the UK next month, both for Download and as special guests to Stone Sour for their short run of UK shows, and we can’t wait to have them back!
Returning to UK shores at the end of the month to headline Slam Dunk Festival 2018, Arizona’s finest Jimmy Eat World have just dropped a double A-side of two new singles – Half Heart and Love Never. We’ve included the video for Half Heart in this weeks’ video of the week for it’s hugely simple yet effective video and the Futures / Bleed American vibes coming off the track. We’re very excited to hopefully hear more new Jimmy Eat World music in the near future!
Returning with their first new single in five years (!!!), the legendary Alice In Chains need no introduction. The One You Know encapsulates everything you’d want from an Alice In Chains song and could be something of an instant classic, accompanied by its somewhat trippy video. Welcome back AiC, we’ve missed you!
Last but certainly not least, and perhaps the most impressive video of the bunch if you like videos that tell a story, London post-rock / ambient / “cinematic metal” quartet The Ever Living have got an absolute doozy here with New Mutiny. Telling the story of a world where machines and AI have largely taken over, it’s hugely visually impressive, and equally enjoyable on the music side of things too.
Six bands, six videos, as always, only one can win. The vote will close at 12 midday UK time on Thursday 10th of May, so get voting!Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
