Papa Roach - Periscope (feat. Skylar Grey)


The Vacaville, California rock band PAPA ROACH have a released a new video for the song "Periscope", (see below) the tune which features a guest appearance by Skylar Grey, is taken from the band's ninth studio album, "Crooked Teeth", which was released on May 19 via Eleven Seven Music. The album has received generally positive reviews from critics.


Regarding to blabbermouth did PAPA ROACH vocalist Jacoby Shaddix said:

"'Periscope' is inspired by the realization that sometimes within a relationship you might not be worth being loved or that the other person may not be worth your love, and the struggle within that — how much effort it takes to make things work. One part that I think is really meaningful in the video is when Skylar and I are in the shot at the same time, yet we're not engaging with each other. It represents the 'disconnection' with two people, which is very much what the lyrics describe." Grey added: "You are loving someone from a distance, not able to reach them." 




Regarding how the Grey collaboration came about, Shaddix told the Q103 radio station: "We wanted to have a guest female vocal on "Periscope", and on the last album, we had Maria Brink from IN THIS MOMENT on "Gravity". I didn't wanna just go in and grab another rock chick. I wanted to work with somebody that was outside the box and different but that I was a fan of. So I've been listening to this girl Skylar Grey for a few years now. And she's been on some great tracks — she's been on some Dre stuff, some Eminem stuff, she's been on a FORT MINOR track. But she's kind of this indie, alternative, pop type of girl, and she's just got a lot of credibility in that scene, and she's got a great voice, and I'm a big fan."


The album was written and recorded in a cramped North Hollywood studio, "Crooked Teeth" was produced by first timers Nicholas "RAS" Furlong and Colin Brittain, with the exception of "Born For Greatness", which saw the band collaborate with writer/producer Jason Evigan (Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Zedd, MAROON 5) for this positive, pulsating anthem. Furlong and Brittain, who grew up listening to PAPA ROACH, inspired the band to revisit some of the traits that personally endeared the band to them, most notably singer Jacoby Shaddix's remarkable rapping technique and the band's intense live energy.

Enjoy todays tune!

Egonaut - The Pledge


Swedish doomsters EGONAUT release new music video and unveil album details "The Pledge" is taken from the upcoming album "The Omega" out November 2017 worldwide on Mighty Music/Target Group.

"The Pledge" is a powerful and atmospheric tune. Catchy melodies and high-powered vocal.

Fredrik Jordanius, guitars, on "The Pledge":

I wanted to make a “simple”, straight to the point rock song for this album and this is what came out of it; a straight forward, catchy tune with a good chorus and a great guitar solo. The song also showcases the somewhat wider possibilities given by not having to combine guitarplaying and singing simultaneously. Lyrically it depicts turning yourself over to a greater power, unknowing of its motives and what it might cost you. As with most of the songs I wrote the majority of the riffs and then we put it together down in our studio. The video was once again filmed by Walka Photograpy, but the editing/post production was done at the Zebra Station and at Nackdrag Design. 


 Formed by Fredrik and Markus in 2005, EGONAUT have spent the last seven years refining their own brand of stoner-rock, merging it with seventies hard rock, metal and a 21st century attitude into their very own brand of music: Bastard Rock.

EGONAUT have also established themselves as one of Sweden’s most crushing live acts, leading to EGONAUT sharing the stage with among others HAMMERFALL, MUSTASCH, SONIC SYNDICATE, LILLASYSTER and HARDCORE SUPERSTAR.

Today's tune "The Pledge" is taken from the upcoming album "The Omega" out November 2017. The video shows the band rocking out as silhouettes, playing against a spacey background. Performed by Egonaut, Filmed by Walka Photography, Edited at the Zebra Station and Additional magic by Nackdrag Design
