Feral Family have unleashed their latest single, "Spice King", taken from their debut EP 'Playtest' (due 12 May). Arriving as a fiery follow-up to playful, Spaghetti Western-inspired single "Wee Van Bee", "Spice King" is an equally cinematic cut that thunders and wails like an interplanetary apocalypse.
Inspired by Frank Herbert's visionary science-fiction saga 'Dune', the track is as vital and mind-bending as the novel's own precious currency with Feral Family's rambunctious sounds elevating listeners to an altered state. (continue)

Taylor spoke to NME about the follow-up to his late 2020 effort, "CMFT". He shared, "I can't wait for people to hear this album.
"It chews up that first record and spits it out. It's more dialed-in with everything people expect from me, so it's got hints of CMFT, but there are also hints of Slipknot, Stone Sour and all the stuff I've done in my acoustic shows. It's got everything for everybody. People are going to f***ing lose it." (continue)

Davey Muise (Vanna) and Andrew Gaultier (He is Legend) will be releasing the debut EP from their new project called Hematite on March 31st and to celebrate we asked Davey to tell us about the new single, "Run Devil Run". Here is the story:
Ever feel like no matter what you do, you are either running towards something or away from something? Like a constant game of catch up where you either are the hunter or the hunted. Out running your demons or being run over by them and maybe that's just the great balance of life? Who knows, but I wrote Run Devil Run within the chaos of much change and newness in my life. Felt like I was chasing after the change and running away from the things that no longer suited my skin. But that middle place, the inbetween makes you feel so thinly spread like store brand margarine on porous toast. For me, writing about my sh*t allows me to take the power back and feel a little more balanced even if I'm just a slice of bread in a toaster. (continue)
