THE BANNER PREMIERES CIRCLE OF SALT

tb_logo

As the countdown to Greying ticks on, The Banner unveil one more of the new album’s songs. Stream “Circle of Salt,” exclusively via Metal Injection, here.

 

 

Greying, The Banner’s third full-length (and first since 2008!), hits stores December 9th on Good Fight Music. Fans can pre-order the LP, CD, and various merch options, now from Good Fight’s official store, and the digital tracks via iTunes and Bandcamp.

 

 

“Circle of Salt” is a rugged slab of absolute despair, exemplifying the key elements of The Banner’s trademarked sound: crushing hardcore, blackened horror, and dark ambience. Over a decade after their formation, and with hundreds of bands influenced by their melding of hardcore, metal, and goth vibes, The Banner continue to push the game forward.

 

 

Greying was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Will Putney (Body Count, The Acacia Strain) and Randy Leboeuf.

 

 

Other new tracks off Greying were recently premiered via Revolver and Alternative Press.

 

 

The Banner, live:
Feb 15 – Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom w/ E-Town Concrete, Vision of Disorder

After teasing the news over the weekend, sound maestros ’68 have debuted another brand new music video today for the song “Track 5,” exclusively via Alternative Press Magazine. Few bands can tout the kind of touring history ’68 can over the course of their year long tenure. Adding to that, the band just announced an all new set of tour dates supporting STICK TO YOUR GUNS. Click here for all dates.

’68 debuted at #1 on the Billboard New Artist Chart with the release of In Humor and Sadness last month selling more than 3,000 copies in its first week of release. Puregrain Audio offers, “If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if The Black Keys and Every Time I Die made a love child in the washroom of a Wax Fang concert, ’68 is your answer.” in their 8/10 review. Alternative Press states “What’s ironic about Humor is that despite Scogin’s infatuation with 21st century rock ’n’ roots music, the album is closer in style, decibels and straight-up attitude to Nirvana’s legendary Bleach.

ALTERNATIVE PRESS STREAMS NEW BANNER SONG “UNBAPTIZED”

THE BANNER: Alternative Press streams new track, “Unbaptized,” off Good Fight Music debut

 

The Banner have offered up another track off their forthcoming new album, Greying. Stream “Unbaptized” today, exclusively via Alternative Press.

 

The Banner’s third full-length album (and first in six years), Greying hits stores December 9th on Good Fight Music. The album was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Will Putney (Body Count, The Acacia Strain) and Randy Leboeuf.

 

 

Pre-order Greying on CD and LP, along with various merch options, here.

 

 

Pre-order Greying digitally on iTunes, here, and on Bandcamp, here.

 

 

“Unbaptized” rips through speakers like a rabid dog, showcasing The Banner’s metal side, as contrasted with the band’s goth/industrial-leaning songs like the recently debuted “Send Me Down.” Leaders in their field since their inception in the early ’00s, The Banner’s combo of venomous, metallic hardcore and dark atmospheres has helped pave the way for countless bands of today.

 

 

The Banner frontman JSS says this about “Unbaptized”: “‘Unbaptized’ just barely didn’t make it onto our previous album, 2008′s Frailty. After simmering for a long time I chopped off the second half and tried to crank in as legit a thrash part as I could muster, to counterbalance the ignorance of the beginning. The lyrics are a fairly common theme for me, more or less about my growing feeling of disconnection with the places that I once felt most at ease.”

 

 

The Banner, live:
Nov 14 – Stanhope, NJ @ Stanhope House w/ Sheer Terror
Feb 15 – Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom w/ E-Town Concrete, Vision of Disorder

THE BANNER PREMIERES NEW SONG ‘SEND ME DOWN’ ON REVOLVER

tb_logo

The Banner have teamed with Revolver Magazine to present their newest single and video, “Send Me Down,” off the upcoming third album, Greying, out December 9th on Good Fight Music.

 

Just in time for Halloween, the industrial-powered lament of “Send Me Down” shows off the New Jersey band’s full range, from somber to venomous. Hear “Send Me Down” via a video clip created by The Banner frontman JSS and Old Wounds drummer Brandon Gallagher, now streaming exclusively at Revolver, here.

 

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 4.51.10 PM

 

The Banner arrived with a bang in the early ’00s, forcing dark theatrics into metallic hardcore. Ahead of their time, The Banner helped pave the way for the massive resurgence of goth influence within the scene, witnessed today all over the map, from Warped Tour kings like Motionless in White, to critics’ darlings like Iceage.

 

The Banner’s third full-length, and first in over six years, Greying was engineered, mixed and mastered by Will Putney (The Acacia Strain, Body Count) and Randy Leboeuf. Out December 9th on Good Fight Music (the same team behind Ferret Music, the label that released the band’s first two albums), Greying shows The Banner to be feral, hungry, and pushing the genre forward yet again.

WITHIN THE RUINS PREMIERE 2ND MUSIC VIDEO

WTR_logo1

WITHIN THE RUINS have debuted a brand new music video for their latest single “Calling Card,” exclusively via BLOODYDISGUSTING.COM. Directed by long time veteran director Kevin J. Custer, the video is a drastic departure from what most metal videos look like these days. “This is a perfect representation of the concept of our new album Phenomena,” says vocalist Tim Goergen.

 

WATCH THE CALLING CARD VIDEO HERE

 

The video depicts Goergen as the main character in a comic book, a running theme throughout the band’s latest release. He continues, “Comics and metal go hand in hand and we are beyond stoked on how this video came out! Definitely the most fun we’ve had on set for a music video.” This video is a followup to the fiery “Gods Amongst Men” video that was released a few months ago. Watch that here.

 
The band just announced a string of dates throughout Canada and the U.S. with Texas in July, starting in November. But first, the band is headed out in support of Born of Osiris and Thy Art Is Murder on the Tomorrow We Die Alive tour starting October 10th. Click here for all tour dates.

The new tour dates finds the band in peak form and fresh off the success of their latest album Phenomena which was released on July 22, 2014 via eOne Music / Good Fight Music. The LP is the fourth album we’ve seen from the Massachusetts metal act. Revolver Magazine states, “Picking up where last year’s breakthrough, ‘Elite,‘ left off, this Massachusetts band delivers crushing death-core that takes chances.” Metal Injection calls the new album “a well refined album with more surprises than one would expect.”

 


 

WELCOME NASTY TO THE FAMILY

NASTY: Good Fight Music announces North American release of Belgians’ next album

 

Fresh off the release of Old Wounds‘ new EP, Death Projection, and the signing of The Banner, Good Fight Music announces it will team up with Belgian band Nasty for the North American release of its next album.

 

Formed a decade ago in La Calamine, Belgium, Nasty has released four albums to date and has toured the world exhaustively, playing almost every country in Europe, as well as the US, Brazil, Japan, China and South Korea. In the past year alone, Nasty has toured with Suicidal Tendencies, Terror, Strife, Madball, Deez Nuts, and more.

 

Nasty’s fifth album, as yet untitled, will be released in North America on Good Fight Music in 2015. Expect unrepentant breakdowns and Belgian-accented mosh incitements.

 

Stream “Lying When They Love Us,” a track off the album, here.

 

Watch the video, here.

 

Good Fight founder Carl Severson states: “Good Fight was born out of the hardcore scene and we embrace that. There are a number of young bands with a fresh take on hardcore right now and Nasty really stood out to us. After their recent European tour with Terror, we’d heard they were great dudes as well. We are lucky to have the opportunity to work with them.”

 

Nasty frontman Matthi adds: “We are very happy to have Good Fight as our new home and partner for North America. We are already feeling at home.”

WELCOME THE BANNER TO THE FAMILY

tb_logo

Good Fight Music welcomes The Banner to its family.

 

One of the standouts of New Jersey’s hardcore history, The Banner injected morbid, gothic vibes into metallic hardcore in the early ’00s – along with bands like Ink and Dagger, The Banner turned a whole new generation onto a tradition set forth by The Misfits in the ’80s.

 

Now, well over a decade since its formation, The Banner returns, vital as ever, ready to push hardcore forward once again.

 

The connection between The Banner and Good Fight Music runs deep: Good Fight boss Carl Severson released The Banner’s previous two albums – 2005′s Each Breath Haunted and 2008′s Frailty – on his former label, Ferret Music.

 

Good Fight will release The Banner’s fourth full-length album, Greying, in the upcoming months. The band’s first album in more than five years, Greying was produced by Will Putney (The Acacia Strain, Poison the Well), also producer of 2008′s Frailty.

 

With the final touches now being put on Greying, The Banner reveals one new song off the album: “Crippling Despair.” Stream the track here.

 

“Crippling Despair” gives a glimpse at what’s to come: ripping hardcore punk, cloaked in blackened bludgeon and mournful atmosphere.

 

The Banner founder and frontman JSS states: “Greying is a mix of Each Breath Haunted’s darkness and Frailty’s heaviness. To bring you this album we mobilized the same team that brought you Frailty: producer Will Putney and label boss Carl Severson. Greying is very much a continuation of everything we built in the last decade, pushing everything forward to create the best music we’ve ever made.”

 

Now, with an entirely new legion of young hardcore bands flourishing in its shadow – bands like Good Fight labelmates Old Wounds, for example – The Banner is back.

 

Stand by for more details about Greying, coming up on Good Fight Music, and look out for The Banner – now consisting of founder/frontman JSS, guitarist Garrett Defalco, bassist Steve Tanis, and drummer Jake Blochinger – on tour soon.
