New Jersey metal outfit Beyond Dishonor have released a Breaking Bad-inspired music video for their new single “Heisenberg”. Directed by Mitch Martinez, the video features shady laboratories, sleazy executives, and more. You can watch the video after the jump.
Vocalist Reese Dunlap comments, “It’s an obvious homage to one of our favorite pieces of entertainment, but it is wrapped around a stronger metaphor – just as Walt perfects the formula against his better judgement, so too are we forced to find and perfect the formula for notice and respect in this tumultuous industry and genre. That theme is referenced throughout the song, and goes one step further in the video, where we are, in a sense, a victim of this formulaic control. It is only when we have ‘perfected the formula’ that we can finally escape mediocrity.”
Beyond Dishonor will also be releasing a new EP entitled Generations this June. The EP was produced by Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, Impending Doom). The band is also heading on a short tour and will be supporting Miss May I on several dates. The full touring schedule is below. READ MORE
Metalcore band Killswitch Engage has announced a full string of US headlining tour dates. Support will come from As I Lay Dying, Miss May I, and Affiance. The tour kicks off in Oklahoma City and wraps up just over a month later in Joliet.
Vocalist Jesse Leach comments, “We look forward to sharing this tour with our old friends and brothers in metal As I Lay Dying. I personally have never had the chance to tour with them and I am looking forward to having such a quality band out with us to give this tour even more fire! We will also be joined by a talented and up-and-coming band Miss May I and a new band we’re all excited to see live called Affiance. Thanks to all the U.S. fans for your support! Our live show will be full-on energy with all of us ready to take this to a whole new level.”
Bassist Mike D. adds, “We are super excited to be back out with our good buds in As I Lay Dying! They are some of our favorite dudes to hang with on the road, so assumptions are high that utter chaos shall ensue. There will be so much metal riffage — you could build your own Carnival Cruse Ship. That’s right, ‘CHUGGA CHUGGA Paralysis’ is surely imminent.”

The kind gentlemen of metal band Emmure were gracious enough to send me their Top Ten Horror Movie list.

Here’s a message from guitarist Ben Bruce: ”Hey everyone, so ‘The Reckless and Relentless Tour’ is our first headlining tour of 2011. It’s gonna be bigger, better and crazier than any other tour this year. It’s just gonna be flat out fucking insane. We can’t wait to share our new songs with everyone. Our stage show, production and light show will be more impressive and more outrageous than tumblr, isanyoneup or any other nude band site out there. It will definitely make you scream harder and louder. I hope you are all ready to rock and fucking roll. Get ready, because we are fucking back!”
Knoxville, Tennessee’s Whitechapel have just released the new track ‘The Darkest Day of Man,’ off of the bands 3rd full-length release (second for Metal Blade), A New Era of Corruption due out June 8th. “The first single we have released from the new album A New Era of Corruption is titled ‘The Darkest Day of Man’ (which can be heard HERE). We played it live during our overseas touring at the beginning of this year in Australia and the UK and were getting a great response from the crowd for it. I feel this song perfectly demonstrates how we have progressed as a band musically and in our song writing, but have not stepped away from our signature Whitechapel sound,” comments guitarist and founding member Alex Wade.
