Midlands four-piece GO PRIMITIVE have released the brand new video for ‘A Different Person’ the explosive second single taken from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Choices‘,out February 23rd 2018.

I remember when my jaws dropped in disbelief as my eyes stayed fixated on this band when I first came to know about the teenage sensation band, UNLOCKING THE TRUTH. I couldn’t believe the amazing feat and the ability of these mere teens who were already taking the metal and rock community by storm with their crisp and perfectly chiseled song performances. Now, the nu metal teenage trio are ready to break huge on the scene as they prepare to unleash their all new music video, “My Chains“. After years of media excitement, late-night TV appearances, and breakout sets at Coachella and Bonnaroo, the band’s debut album ‘Chaos‘ was finally released independently last year. The music video is off the very same album.
Nashville based rock band Hogan’s Goat has released the Official Music Video for their single “Annie Off The Rails”. Originally premiered on Huffington Post, “Annie Off The Rails” is off of Hogan’s Goat’s self titled, debut album.
Hogan’s Goat tracks mud on your clean carpet. Located in Nashville, TN the band slithers in the swamps of Rock N’ Roll/Metal. A shotgun blast away from the big leagues, HG released their debut album in July of 2017. The band received 20+ reviews, all with high marks. With sites likening them to Guns N’ Roses, Mastodon, Red Fang, and Clutch, the band has the utensils necessary to stir the cauldron. Hogan’s Goat is bound to “usher in a new era of music.” [Kenny Larson, The Gauntlet]
