Weird Wednesday: 8/20/14

Welcome back everyone to the sixth installment of Weird Wednesday! For those who may be new to this, today is the day we share some material that you may not find on your typical “hardcore blog.” So, before we begin, let us remind you: THERE ARE NO BREAKDOWNS IN TODAY’S MUSIC.  

After listening to today’s batch of tunes, tweet us at @thenoise and let us know which songs you enjoyed the most.  

See you next week! 

Superheaven – “No One’s Deserving”

Creepy mouse masks and a grungy intro are always a great way to start off a music video. However, as the clip for Superheaven’s “No One’s Deserving” continues, things take a turn for the worse. Not wanting to give too much away, let’s just say sometimes it’s best not to reveal what’s behind the mask. For more from the loud Doylestown, PA rockers, give a listen to their 2013 EP, Jar, and be on the lookout for new music to be released soon.    

Modern Chemistry - “Never Scared”

For those expecting something similar to Bone Crusher’s 2003 hip hop hit “Never Scared,” we’re here to tell you you’re out of luck. Although, for those who are expecting an impressive upbeat rock tune, you came to the right place. New Jersey natives, Modern Chemistry, may be relatively unknown at this time, but don’t let that stop you from checking out their video for “Never Scared.” Off their EP Self Help Guide for Being Alone, Modern Chemistry’s Manchester Orchestra-like sound is infectious and will undoubtedly lead them to bigger things in the future.

My Iron Lung – “Commonwealth”

My Iron Lung is a band of melodic hardcore misfits out of Southern California. With a very raw and powerful sound, it’s no surprise that they were signed to Pure Noise Records so quickly in their career. Releasing their debut LP Relief earlier this month, My Iron Lung has a busy year ahead of them heading over to Europe to tour with Being as an Ocean and Vanna. If you’re a fan of “Commonwealth,” be sure to check out Relief as well as their Facebook page for more upcoming tour dates.    

Foxing – “Rory”

We’re not so sure what it is about trumpets, but something about them seems to fit flawlessly into a melodic heartfelt tune. Foxing’s “Rory,” for example, features orchestral instruments, a piano and thumping drum beats, however it’s not until the end of the song when the trumpet kicks in that you really feel those goosebumps – at least for us that is. If you don’t believe us, give “Rory” a quick listen and let us know what you think. Afterwards, if you think you need a little more trumpet in your life, Foxing’s debut album The Albatross is out now and can be picked up on Bandcamp.

Violent Soho – “Covered in Chrome”

When somebody asked us the other day if we liked Violent Soho’s new track “Covered in Chrome,” our response was simple, “Hell Fuck Yeah!” Accompanied with over 50 yeahs, a couple catchy riffs and a chorus you can’t help but nod along to, it’s no surprise this song has been heard all throughout the Noise office as of late. Recently signed to SideOneDummy Records, this Australian four-piece will be dropping their third full-length, Hungry Ghost, here in the U.S on September 30. If you’re into “Covered in Chrome” – which we bet you are — we’re sure you’ll love the new album, as well.
