The Paris show in May also marked the release of Archive’s career-spanning box set retrospective collection ‘25’.

Talking about the tour and the ‘25 Live’ album, Archive co-founder Darius Keeler said:

The tour was, without doubt, the most ambitious live outing Archive has ever undertaken, playing great shows to sell-out crowds, in some incredible venues, it felt like a celebration every single night! We wanted to make this free live album available, not just to all the people who saw us on the tour, but to everyone who’s supported Archive throughout our career and made the last 25 years possible.

The band documented the 25 Live tour on film, directed by Archive vocalist Dave Pen:

“I’ve always been into experimenting with film, I’ve made videos for other projects but I really wanted to document such an important tour for Archive. It was very much a point and shoot film, I was aiming to give fans an honest insight into life on the road with the band, and I think the resulting film does that.”

Black Swan:
Robin McAuley – Lead Vocals & Background Vocals
Reb Beach – Guitars and Background Vocals
Jeff Pilson – Bass, Acoustic Guitar, Keys & Background Vocals
Matt Starr – Drums and Percussion

The genesis of Black Swan was sparked by a conversation between Jeff Pilson and Frontiers’ President & Head of A&R, Serafino Perugino, who wanted a project that would not only showcase McAuley’s vocal prowess, but have a mighty musical backbone to stand skyscraper tall behind him. Thus, the initial seeds were planted and Pilson ran with it from there. “Shake The World” was tracked at Pilson’s home studio in Los Angeles, “Shake The World” is a showcase of both the musical talents of the instrumental players in the band as well as McAuley’s powerful voice. The four members got Black Swan off the ground by exchanging ideas back and forth and then bringing all the songs together. The final result is something fresh, very heavy, but still intensely melodic and it’s certainly not Dokken, nor Winger, nor MSG, or some combination thereof, but it’s own unique animal. As an example, one of the songs was written by Jeff Pilson right after seeing the Queen movie ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. “I came home and I sat down at the grand piano and pretty much wrote exactly the chorus that we have, just coming straight [from] the movie. It is a bit Queen-like.” Continues Pilson, “It’s amazing, incredible music. Wait until you hear everybody’s playing and singing. It’s beyond — way beyond.” Adds Robin McAuley, “This is really exciting for me to read: Black Swan announces the release of “Shake the World,” the first offering from the band on the Frontiers’ label.” I’ve known Jeff for some thirty years and we have a history of performing together on MSG Unplugged, in addition to being great friends, musically and socially. When he asked me to do this and collaborate with Reb, I didn’t have to think too long with my response. Initially he wasn’t going to play bass on this, but Reb and myself soon changed his mind, lol!!! Bringing Matt into the mix was a great decision. His powerful energy and style is unmistakable on this album. Overall, it is a very powerful blend of styles and writing. Reb is truly an amazing guitarist and songwriter. Jeff captured my vocals the way I like to sound. Probably the best vocal sound I’ve had… ever!!!! Such a great and creative studio experience for me. This is kick ass, powerful music on an album full of great songs. If you love strong melodies and BIG choruses, BLACK SWAN won’t disappoint!! It’s time…”SHAKE THE WORLD!!!” Guitarist Reb Beach says, “When Jeff approached me to do this, I was so excited because I loved writing “Erase the Slate” with him for Dokken. I also played in the band with Jeff for four years, and we worked so well together, writing and live too. He is as good as it gets when it comes to a rock musician, a great songwriter and an absolute joy to work with. I came in with riffs, Jeff arranged them into a song by adding his own parts, and then Robin wrote the lyrics, and knocked it out of the park with the vocals. I am pretty particular about singers, and Robin’s voice is so slammin’ that I wouldn’t want anyone else. Matt came in with his huge drum sound, and we had a great sounding band. Very exciting stuff!!” “Shooting the video was a blast,” says drummer Matt Starr. “Shot in Los Angeles over the course of two days, it was similar to recording the record, everything was very organic and comfortable. That’s the advantage of working with guys who have so much experience. There’s not too much discussion going on. Everybody knows what to do, we just get to work and do it. That leaves more time for hanging out, chatting and smoking cigars!” The album is a killer slice of melodic hard rock & heavy metal from seasoned players who have gelled musically. Whether you are a fan from “back in the day” or brand new to the scene and just diving in, the album is essential listening! Mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering, USA



BIRDEATSBABY release their new Dark Progressive Rock single and the furious music video for “Box Of Razorblades” an ode to hopelessness

English Dark Progressive Rock band BIRDEATSBABY releases its third single “Box Of Razorblades” taken from the album “The World Conspires”.

Vocalist Mishkin Fitzgerald experiences in the song an all too familiar emotional world of depression, self-harm, alcoholism and bipolar disorder. “Box Of Razorblades” is an ode to hopelessness to which director Scott Chalmers (Devin Townsend, Fear Factory, 69 Eyes) together with award-winning visual effects artist Oliver Hollingdale (Avengers, Insurgent, Fast And The Furious 7) has produced a furious music video with impressive camera flights, grotesque landscapes as well as dramatic acting sequences including a voodoo ritual. Produced by legendary John Fryer (Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, HIM) in Los Angeles and mastered by Bob Macchiochi (Shades, Baby Grande, Space Jesus), the masterpiece “The World Conspires” is available through Dr. Music Records.

BIRDEATSBABY’s new single “Box Of Razorblades” is now available in these download shops and streaming services: Amazon (DE) | Amazon (ES) | Amazon (FR) | Amazon (IT) | Amazon (UK) | Amazon (US) | iTunes | Google Play | SMStracks | Spotify | Apple Music | Deezer | Tidal

BIRDEATSBABY coquet with bittersweet romance and mysticism in “The World Conspires”

Great feelings, energy, melancholic soft melodies. BIRDEATSBABY, from Brighton, are a special ensemble that has been delivering the great inner cinema since 2009. The name of the Dark Progressive Rock band was literally dreamt up while sleeping, bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Mishkin Fitzgerald and her fellow bandmates walk on paths far away from the uniform mainstream. “The World Conspires” is the fifth album and at the same time the beginning of a new phase in the musical development of BIRDEATSBABY, touching the spheres of modern Prog Metal for the first time. Reaching into these new avenues of creative inspiration, the English band fuses its genre of Dark Cabaret with harder progressive sounds without neglecting its roots. Open-minded music fans with a predilection for bands and artists such as Anathema, Tool, Nick Cave or Muse should note the 18th of October 2019, when the new masterpiece, produced by the legendary John Fryer (Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, HIM) and mastered by Bob Macchiochi (Shades, Baby Grande, Space Jesus) in the Black Needle Noise Emporium Studio in Los Angeles, will be released via Dr. Music Records.

When they met during their studies at Brighton University, BIRDEATSBABY’s flame-haired vocalist Mishkin Fitzgerald and guitarist Garry Mitchell formed a thriving musical partnership with a mutual love of dark and progressive music. After a few line-up changes the band has been completed with Anna Mylee on drums and Hana Maria on violin, cello and harp. Starting out in the Punk Cabaret scene, the sound progressed into an atmospheric, melancholic Prog Rock with Steampunk fragments, which excites with classical orchestral layers, bold guitars and intricate arrangements. The band has amassed a cult-like following across the world, aptly called ‘The Flock’, and has been able to successfully crowd-fund each of their releases. Additionally, they landed support slots with The Courtesans, the German Gothic icons ASP and played hundreds of shows in the UK, Europe, the United States and also Mexico. With their new studio album “The World Conspires” BIRDEATSBABY have now returned with a soundtrack for the soulful, haunting, riotous celebration of life in all its facets. The album leads the listener on a roller coaster ride of drama and conflicting emotions. From the rich, orchestral and fragile album opener “Hold Your Breath”, a mantra for anyone who has gone through trauma, it continues with the mystical “Painkiller”, as well as the title song and its overwhelming ode to love, on to “Lady Grey”, which elegiacally and captivatingly walks through the shadows, before the musicians slow down with “How Do I” and let Mishkin’s sensitive voice float over soft piano sounds, accompanied by strings. The tragic “Box Of Razorblades” continues atmospherically until the last act is introduced with the extraordinary “Dido’s Lament” along with brilliant guest vocals by Feline Lang (Feline & Strange). In “Kill No One” the punk attitude of earlier days flashes up again before the last curtain falls with the spherical “Look Away”.

The BIRDEATSBABY album “The World Conspires”, whose artistic cover was created by illustrator Jack Flamel, will once again tempt new disciples into the spell of their fan cult because friends of sophisticated Progressive Rock music, with a tendency towards melancholy and bittersweet romance, definitely cannot resist this musical highlight.

PSYCHOTIC WALTZ – Launch “All The Bad Men” single and video!

US Progressive Metal pioneers and innovators PSYCHOTIC WALTZ will soon release their 5th studio album, “The God-Shaped Void”, worldwide on February 14th, 2020. Written and recorded with their full original line-up, “The God-Shaped Void”, showcases the first new PSYCHOTIC WALTZ music in 23 years and will be the band’s debut release for InsideOutMusic.

In anticipation of the release, PSYCHOTIC WALTZ are presenting a second single off the album today. Check out the song “All The Bad Men” via a video-clip created by Costin Chioreanu / Twight13Media (Leprous, At The Gates, Borknagar, etc.) here:

PSYCHOTIC WALTZ guitarist Dan Rock says of the song:
“This started out from an old acoustic guitar riff I had back in the ‘90s before we broke up. Oddly, there is no acoustic guitar in it at all!  It became the heavy verse riff. This song took a while to find the right notes for the lead and the proper groove for the drums. Early versions of this song make us cringe, so persistence obviously pays off, as it is one of our favorites from the album now.”
 
And PSYCHOTIC WALTZ say of the video:
“For the first video we trusted visual artist Costin Chioreanu to come up with something fittingly dark, dystopian, abstract and trippy. And he really outdid himself!  Besides, an animated video is a lot better than looking at a bunch of middle-aged guys rocking out in an empty warehouse.”
 
Previously, a first track off “The God-Shaped Void” entitled “Devils And Angels” was debuted in a lyric video by Cloud Music Typography here: https://youtu.be/2u1V8G43ytE

The basic tracks for “The God-Shaped Void” were recorded with engineer Ulrich Wild in the band’s hometown of San Diego, then the rest of the recordings at Studio D in Austria and finally the material was mixed/mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, Fates Warning) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. Artwork, as to be seen above, was created by longtime visual partner Travis Smith (Katatonia, Riverside, Nevermore).

Here is the tracklisting for “The God-Shaped Void”:

1. Devils And Angels (06:29)
2. Stranded (04:49)
3. Back To Black (03:52)
4. All The Bad Men (03:59)
5. The Fallen (05:49)
6. While The Spiders Spin (05:49)
7. Pull The String (04:54)
8. Demystified (05:12)
9. Season Of The Swarm (05:57) *** Bonus Track
10. Sisters Of The Dawn (06:41)
11. In The Silence (05:16)

The album’s bonus-track “Season Of The Swarm” will be available on the limited Mediabook CD (which comes with expanded booklet and an exclusive logo patch), on the vinyl edition as well as on the Digital versions. A standard Jewelcase CD edition is available as well.

The vinyl edition of “The God-Shaped Void” comes as 2LP on 180gr. vinyl with gatefold packaging and with the entire album on CD as bonus in the following versions:
– Black 2LP + CD: Unlimited
– Lilac 2LP + CD: 200x copies from IOM Webshop – Sold Out!
