It’s about to be a very busy summer for everyone – from playing festivals to plenty of new record releases. Lucky for us this tends to mean there are plenty of new music videos being released in the lead up to it. Check out some of our favourites to be released this past week below.
The Used – The Nexus
From their latest music video, The Used have joined forces with long-time collaborator Lisa Mann, who has directed music videos for them in the past. Of the process, she shared: “Bert sent me pages ripped from his notes, scribbles, scratches, phrases, train of thoughts he had when making the record. I really wanted to bring the guttural honesty Bert unleashed in the lyrics of the record to the all the videos.”
Groundculture – Sculptures
Newcastle metal band Groundculture are just about to release their self-titled EP, which drops on June 1st. In the lead up to the forthcoming release, the band have unveiled the music video for ‘Sculptures’, the second track off of the record. Give it a watch below.
Queen Kwong – Fools Gold
Following the release of their album Love Me To Death, Queen Kwong have dropped a stunning new music video for their track ‘Fools Gold’. Of the cohesive new album, Carré Callaway comments: “This is a total encapsulation of who I am. If you look at my body of work from when I was really young, there are elements of that in this record. It’s all me, but I think I’ve presented it a lot better than I’ve been able to do before. I challenged myself and I think I put together a cohesive record that’s a really true representation of who I am.”
Of Mice & Men – Instincts
Of Mice & Men’s latest music video ‘Instincts’ shows a glimpse at the band’s recent tours in Japan and Australia and it definitely highlight’s their dynamic live performance. Frontman Aaron Pauley comments: “When the idea for doing a video for the song came up, we collectively decided that the only way we could do it justice was to show this song’s live power, and here it is. Turn it up, and bang your head!”
This Wild Life – Westside
This Wild Life are about to have a busy summer – aside from playing Warped Tour the duo will also be releasing their new album on June 22nd, titled Petaluma. The first track they are sharing from the record is ‘Westside’, which tackles the serious topic of sexual assault.
