Trash Boat have premiered their new music video recently. You can check out the video for their song “Inside Out” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Crown Shyness which is due out on July 20th via Hopeless Records.
Vocalist Tobi Duncan commented on the song:
This song is a personal analysis of my inner monologue. The ‘guy’ that’s with me with every decision, every thought process and my quietest, most solitary moments. ‘He’ regularly represents the two extremes of my nature. Always there to talk me out of making horrible decisions and ready to chastise me for making them anyway. I think in all honesty ‘he’ is the first and most important thing I need to make peace with and understand. He’ is the foundation of my self and is subject to my guidance while having total control over me. My order and my chaos.
Austin, Texas rock band Nominee have premiered their new music video recently. You can check out the video for their song “Heatwave” below. The song is from the band’s split with Sundressed which was released recently via Outerloop Records.
The band’s Chris Mclelland commented:
‘Heatwave’ is a deeply personal song. When I was 17, in the summer after my senior year of high school, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Leading up to my diagnosis was the darkest, loneliest part of my life. I was suffering from depression but at the time, before a clinical diagnosis, it just alone; like nothing I could do or say would fix how I was feeling. All of my friends were preparing to leave for college, while I was going to be staying at home in the fall. I couldn’t express to anyone how I was feeling. It seemed like it would be a burden to any family or friends who found out. The last thing I wanted was to push people away by putting my issues on them. I was embarrassed. In this time, I was waking up, faking a smile throughout the day.
Finally, in the end of the summer, after weeks of feeling this way with no improvement, I made the choice to take my own life. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t picture a future for myself and I didn’t think anyone could possibly understand. Obviously, I’m still here. Those couple weeks are a blur, but the one thing that I learned with 100% certainty is that no one is ever alone. After my attempt, I began seeing a doctor to figure out what was triggering my emotions to take such harsh turns.
‘Heatwave’ is about the weeks leading up to the incident, reflecting on the loneliness and desperation that lead to my decision. For years, I hid my disorder from my loved ones. Only recently, just before the release of Drag Me Out, did I become open about it. And now that it’s out in the open I’m becoming more and more willing to speak and write about it. This is the first time talking about my suicide attempt since it happened. ‘Heatwave’ is for anyone who feels like they can’t see a future.
While the song reflects on some of the darkest periods of my life, the video shows some of my happiest.
Omaha, Nebraska rock band Names Without Numbers have premiered their new song recently. You can check out the lyric video for their song “The Apathy Anthem” below.
The band commented:
The Apathy Anthem’ is a song about letting go and having fun. It’s healthy for everyone to cut loose and ditch responsibilities every now and again. And although the theme has a bit of a reckless tone, the central message is that life can become a whole lot more enjoyable if you can give up trying to control everything and just let go.
Michigan post-hardcore band As We Divide have premiered their new song recently. You can check out the stream for their song “Resurgence” featuring Rory Rodriguez of Dayseeker below.

Seeing this band grow and mature a quickly as it did has surprised me. We have not only become better musicians, but we have learned that being completely open and honest with your art adds so much to your craft. This is As We Divide’s best work to date, and we could not be prouder of it.
Guitarist John Murphy commented:
Being a part of this band has been an emotional rollercoaster. We’ve all experienced so much together. We’re proud of ‘Resurgence’ because it showcases a more innovative and impassioned approach to our sound. We’ve matured greatly as a unit and it shows in the new music. I’m ecstatic to release this track as well as more coming in the future. Enjoy.
