Jimmy Eat World – “Get Right” [Video]

Jimmy Eat World is back and here is the new lyric video “Get Right.” The group already announced a 7″ for the release and now has put up pre-order for the full length due out October 21st.

The album does not have a title yet or track listing but if you order the vinyl per JEW you will get the rarest variant. You can pre-order HERE.

Metallica – “Hardwired” [Video]

At this point in time it is really easy to dismiss Metallica as irrelevant. Death Magnetic (2008) was not a bad return to form and debatebly their best output since the black album in 1991. So eight years later here we go – Hardwired…to Self-Destruct will be released on November 18th and this first single feels very retro Metallica. Already, I have seen tons of mixed feelings on the song but I think it is hard to turn away from these Kill ‘Em All style riffs and drums. What the album will sound like – who cares. This track will shake your speakers!

Green Day – “Bang Bang” [Video]

Green Day will release their 12th studio album, entitled Revolution Radio, on October 7th via Reprise Records. “Bang Bang” is the first single and video off the record. I will say it is 100% Green Day with its punk speed, hook and political statement. In fact, the last third of this track rips!

Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, Revolution Radio is said to be a 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that captures Green Day pefectly. I will say that the album artwork is great. Currently, there is a limited red vinyl variant for pre-order at the band’s website HERE. Tracklisting below.

The track-listing for Revolution Radio is as follows:
1. Somewhere Now
2. Bang Bang
3. Revolution Radio
4. Say Goodbye
5. Outlaws
6. Bouncing Off The Wall
7. Still Breathing
8. Youngblood
9. Too Dumb To Die
10. Troubled Times
11. Forever Now
12. Ordinary World

The Wedding Present – “Bear” [Video]

The Wedding Present had some great records early in their career such as and Seamonsters (1991) and Watusi (1994) but it is great to see the band releasing new material today. Here is the video for their new single “Bear” off the upcoming Going, Going… on September 2nd via Scopitones.

The new record sounds like a monster with its opening four instrumental songs, before breaking out with a jangle of clanging guitars, a squeal of feedback and a rush of adrenaline.

The tracklisting for the the new album is below along with pre-order info as it is available in three audio-visual formats: standard CD + DVD, deluxe CD + DVD in hard-bound ‘book pack’ with extra tracks + lyrics, deluxe double 180g LP + DVD with extra tracks + lyrics.

Tracklisting: 1. Kittery / 2. Greenland / 3. Marblehead / 4. Sprague / 5. Two Bridges / 6. Little Silver / 7. Bear / 8. Secretary / 9. Birdsnest / 10. Kill Devil Hills / 11. Bells / 12. Fifty-Six / 13. Fordland / 14. Emporia / 15. Broken Bow / 16. Lead / 17. Ten Sleep / 18. Wales / 19. Rachel / 20. Santa Monica

The Dead Ships – “First Mistakes” [Video]

The Dead Ships debut full-length LP CITYCIDE is out now on Nevado Music. Here is the band’s new video for “First Mistakes” off of the album. The Dead Ships had an opportunity to sit in with multi-platinum producer/guitarist Chris Thorn of Blind Melon and Awolnation to make an alternate version of “First Mistakes” heard in the video.

About the video, The Dead Ships’ Devlin McClusky says, “Because most of the songs were written to help process grief so many have an undercurrent of sadness. First mistakes feels more hopeful but still comes from and always reminds me of such a sad period.” He adds, “When [director] Kelly Reed came to us with the concept of taped up smiles, it brought to the fore some of the darker parts of the emotional spectrum that may be overlooked by the first listen to such a sentimental feeling like “it was good to be alive”. I love those studies that come out every now again that show the physical formation of a smile on your face actually stimulates parts of your brain and causes a chain reaction that puts you in a better mood. No one wants to force a smile, but you can always assert some level of control over yourself and change how you feel.”

Ty Segall – “Californian Hills” [Video]

We always enjoy some Ty Segall and today we get the new animated video for “Californian Hills.” It is another track off of Emotional Mugger and the video for sure will leave lasting images in your head.

The video, directed by Meghan Tryon and Garrett Davis, has a lot going on including jesters, knights and clowns. That is right clowns! Enjoy but don’t watch too many times as you might start seeing spots!

Courtney Barnett – “Elevator Operator” [Video]

Here is a great new video from Courtney Barnett! This is for her new single “Elevator Operator” which was directed by Sunny Leunig (son of legendary Australian cartoonist Michael Leunig, who himself appears briefly in the video) and crammed with cameos.

You will find Sleater-Kinney, Magda Szubanski (“Kath & Kim”), Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), and musical Antipodean legends such as The Drones, Tim Rogers and Paul Kelly. This is really what making videos are all about – good times and support for a solid song. You can still catch Courtney on tour at the dates listed below.

Paul Orwell Organized Blues LP – 50 Blue / 350 Black

Paul Orwell is a singer / songwriter from Essex who has great old school sound talent which we loved on his full length debut Blowing Your Mind Away. His new record is an Instru’MENTAL’ album titled ORGANIZED BLUES which will go up on Pre-Order today.

As most Heavy Soul Records release the album is a vinyl only release on heavy wax with only 400 pressed. 350 BLACK VINYL and a very limited 50 BLUE VINYL. His output typically sells fast so don’t delay and look HERE for a copy after 4 PM est today.

Just to get a taste we also included Orwell’s new video for “DON’T DO AS I DO, JUST DO AS I SAY!”
