Within Temptation – ‘Don’t Pray For Me’

We move our News Report on now to the best music releases from the past week and begin with the new video from Within Tempation. You can check out ‘Don’t Pray For Me’, above.

Vocalist Sharon den Adel comments: “‘Don’t Pray For Me’ strives against forcing beliefs and fears onto others and bears witness to being acceptive of everyone’s own journey. It is an anthem about coming to terms with the fact that beliefs can be fluid, multiple or frankly: different. The song is about allowing people to pursue their own destiny.”

News Report

As always we conclude our weekly News Report with the latest additions to our ‘Discover’ New Music Playlist!

IOTA – ‘Take It’

Bristol-based rock five-piece IOTA share their new single, ‘Take It’.

Speaking about the single, the band reveal, “Take It was inspired by the fight with yourself in a multitude of circumstances, work, relationships, socially and mentally. The continuum of holding yourself back and having this other side to yourself that is constantly telling you, “you aren’t good enough, you won’t make anything of yourself”.

The persistent reminder of how well everyone else is doing, social media controlling us and having a huge effect on us mentally. Constantly taking that push back and battling with your own mind as if it is a whole other person inside of you.

We wrote the song during and before lockdown with Lee Kiernan who helped us build on the track instrumentally and melodically.”

Rosen Bridge – ‘Watchers’

UK Metal outfit Rosen Bridge make their return with a punishing new offering titled ‘Watchers’. The Welsh originated 5-piece have teamed up with vocalist Jot Maxi of the formidable Hacktivist on the track.

“We were privileged to have Jot Maxi feature on the track having been huge fans of Hacktivist for some time. The song continues the sound we’ve established in our recent singles, pairing an intense heaviness with big melodic moments. We enjoyed experimenting with lots of dark electronic sounds in the track as well, with platinum producer Andrew Wade bringing the cohesiveness we needed in the final mix” – Alex Woodall, vocalist.

“It’s crazy that they (Rosen Bridge) approached me to feature on a song that’s about corruption within organised religion because I actually spent the first 26 years of my life in a cult! In fact, I didn’t find the true God of the bible until very recently… So, directing my verse against false, man-made and twisted religions that are designed to glorify humans instead of God was very natural for me, as I obviously have a lot of passion for the subject!” – Jot Maxi of Hacktivist.

Trashed – ‘Memories’

Bristol-based emo punk-rock three-piece Trashed have released their new single ‘Memories’, the third single taken from their debut full-length album due later this year.

Speaking about the single, the band state, “Memories came together very quickly. It’s about trying too hard to let go of someone while your brain clings tighter and tighter to them. Of course written during a dose of heartbreak Jimmy was going through, it’s relatable and sincere… and will probably stick in your head like heartache does.”
