"The Shape", the new album of Italian rock-core act Deaf Autumn is out today via This Is Core! The band has already revealed the first single "A Thousand Broken Hearts", with an enthusiastic reaction of media and fan-base:
"With our debut album "What Was To Be Known" we were just following our instinct showing some attitude and the will to do things for ourselves only, but now with "The Shape", we went truly beyond, digging deeper into us and minding on what we were finding. Through new single "A Thousand Broken Hearts" you will taste just a few things about it, but it's worth a ticket to ride our new journey.
We also had to make some tough line-up changes that led us to constantly search for balance, which set us in front of further choices to make. From that point on, we built up a new will, a new desire, to make things in that way, as a new philosophy. Lyrics got more meanings; some are hidden, some more are well shown, even like a sociological end. We truly believe that there is much spirit in this kind of communication, but at the same time this is a mere tool that everyone can handle as they need it".

Australia's The Creptter Children premiere 'Asleep With Your Devil' in full; out now on Imminence Records
Australian gothic / industrial hard rock outfit The Creptter Children has premiered their label debut in full. Asleep With Your Devil EP features five tracks, with one being a new version of their 2016 single "Watching You," and is out today on Imminence Records.
"Asleep With Your Devil to me is just the beginning of oeuvre and artistic expression that will follow. This new EP offers fans a tantalising sample of the direction The Creptter Children’s musical journey will take them too in the future. After spending many long nights working very hard in the studio on this EP, I was quite pleased to hear the end result. As an artist I can be my own worse critic and will always pick out my flaws. However, I can say I was rather content with the final product and look forward to the next endeavour. My mind never sleeps and I ‘am putting together new song ideas as we speak.” - Iballa Chantelle (Vocalist)
The Creptter Children are a gothic / industrial hard rock band currently based in Melbourne, Australia. They originated from Perth in 2006 by founding members Iballa Chantelle (vocals / guitars) and N8oR (guitars / synth). They released their debut album, entitled Possessed, back in 2010 before touring in the US during 2011. Shortly thereafter they took a hiatus before reappearing in 2016 and quickly catching the attention of American label Imminence Records. They announced their signing with the release of their “Watching You” music video on Halloween of that year.
Renowned for their catchy hooks and dark fashion sense, which stem from the dark and twisted mind of Iballa Chantelle, the band brings to their fans (also known as “Freaks”) her message of creativity, open mindedness, and positive reflection towards spirituality and the supernatural. With influences from Behemoth, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie while being endorsed by Ibanez Guitars and Vampress Fashion, The Creptter Children are ready to take 2018 by storm with a new EP and a label backing them.

Story of the Year has announced they will be releasing their first full-length album since 2010, Wolves, on December 8th, 2017. Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, New Found Glory, Acceptance)and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge & J Hall, this 6th studio album is a testament of how inspired and committed they are to making their best record yet. Wolves is available for pre-order via Pledge Music now, with public pre-orders available next Friday, November 3rd.
Along with this announcement, the band has released their first song, "Bang Bang" premiering exclusively on Alternative Press, here. AltPress.com calls the track a "sure-fire crowd-pleaser"and continued on by saying "it's the perfect way of reminding fans why they fell in love with the band in the first place."
Wolves is full of depth as the band continues down a supercharged anthemic road of alternative rock/hard rock songs while remaining consistent to their classic Story of the Year soaring sound. "This album is us breaking through any rules or creative parameters we may have set for ourselves in the past. These are the most organic, honest, naturally flowing songs we've had in years, maybe ever." Lead Singer Dan Marsala continues on saying "It tells a story of growing up, feeling lost, realizing you're not the person you thought that you would be, fighting for you life, falling in love, learning the importance of family, and all at the same time, being scared to death of how all of that fits together in life. It's an up and down roller coaster of hope and fear."
Yesterday, the band released their first behind-the-scenes look to the album in a webisode, which fans can check out HERE. This is the first of many that will countdown to the album release on December 8th and in classic SOTY form, they are going to be fun.
Story of the Year fans have been singing along for the past 17 years to hit songs like "Until The Day I Die," "Anthem of our Dying Day," "Take Me Back," "Wake Up" and more. The album pre-order and other exclusive early access to behind the scenes videos, upcoming singles and more can be found here: https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/storyoftheyear.
Story of the Year is Dan Marsala: Vocals, Ryan Phillips: Guitars and Computers, Josh Wills: Drums, Philip "Moon" Sneed: Bass and Vocals. They have previously released five studio albums -- Page Avenue, In the Wake of Determination, The Black Swan, The Constant and 10 Years and Counting: An acoustic re-imaging of Page Avenue.
