“Ugly Flame” is the debut EP from North Carolina post-hardcore/emo band, Dull Mourning. Following their single “Burdens” released earlier in summer 2021, “Ugly Flame” continues to expand more on the post-hardcore/emo dynamic that the band carved out so well. “Ugly Flame” revolves around the feeling of frustration and struggling in everyday life. Tracks like ‘Demigod’ and ‘Nosebleed’ question the meaning of everyday life, while ‘Narrow Losses’ confronts the struggle of coping with medication. There’s a lot of harsh truths of life addressed on “Ugly Flame”, yet they all align with the yearning to be a better person and get out of the constant struggle.
Today, you can pre-order on cassette tape and stream the new single, “Nosebleed”. “Ugly Flame” is out everywhere on 1/14/2022.
Broken Head's new single, “Sugar” is out everywhere today. “Sugar” is the first new song from Massachusetts alternative-rock band, Broken Head since their previous EP, “Sungazer”. On Sugar, the band is joined by new drummer, Evan White, and new producer, Trevor Reilly who both bring a new perspective to the band’s sound. Evan keeps an upbeat, driving drum pattern throughout the song while Trevor brings a clearer sound to the recording. This, combined with Broken Head’s shimmery, melodic guitars and Rob’s repeating line, “Satellite of your skies” throughout the song makes for Broken Head’s brightest song yet.
The single is also available on a limited 7" flexi, available for pre-order today, along with a new long sleeve.
“Sane Minds End” is the new EP from Broken Vow out everywhere 12/3/21 on Sunday Drive Records and New Morality Zine.
2021 sees the band continuing full steam. Broken Vow and Sunday Drive Records have teamed up with New Morality Zine to release the band's "Promo 2021" as a precursor to the split release EP, "Sane Minds End". "Sane Minds End" demonstrates that Broken Vow continues to cut their teeth on traditional hardcore of the 90s, while simultaneously drawing in more metallic elements. The new EP builds upon the band's sense of urgency initiated on the demo. Lyrically, Broken Vow continues to create a re-vitalizing social commentary for a new generation of hardcore kids. Combined with building guitar riffs, sharp bass lines, and galloping drums "Sane Minds End" is a new chapter for such a young, promising band.
