A quick look at some interesting releases for the beginning half of January.

Here are some of the many exciting releases for the month of January:

January 8: The Strumbellas release their music video for their new single “Salvation.” “Salvation” has hit #12 on the Alt Rock Chart in Canada.

January 9: Wage War team up with Revolver to release their new video for their song “Low.” This is a track that gives fans a preview of what is to come on their next album. They have been touring non stop and are excited to bring new material to their fans.

January 11: August Burns Red release their amazing cover of the Legend of Zelda theme song. This song will also be available on their upcoming Phantom Sessions EP out on February 08. The bassist, whose idea it was, had this to say about the track: “For the cover, I wanted to do a mash-up of not only the original theme, but other pieces from the game as well, and since the dungeon theme flirts with the diminished scale, it just made sense to put it into a metal cover." Bassist Dustin Davidson, who conceived and executed the guitar play through, explained. "It was a lot of fun to write and record and I look forward to playing it on future tours!”

January 11: Said the Whale release new track “Old Soul, Young Heart” from their upcoming LP Cascadia. They also have a mini Docu-Series on Youtube in regard to their new album and episode 3 was released along with this song.

January 11: I Don’t Know How They Found Me premier new music video for their single “Choke.” This is the lead single off of their debut EP 1981 Extended Play composed by Dallon Weekes, long time bassist for Panic at the Disco and Ryan Seaman. They have quite the interesting backstory. This is the write up on their gimmick:

“I Dont Know How But They Found Me - Dallon Weekes and Ryan Seaman – is a musical entity with a conceptual backstory. The name, a key to their remarkable odyssey, is taken from a piece of dialogue from the 80s classic film, ‘Back To The Future.’ They are a lost act from the late 70s early 80s that never quite made it, but their rare and long-forgotten music has recently been unearthed thanks to today’s technological resources.  Weekes and Seaman are just starting to resurrect the songs and innovative spirit of IDKHOW for a new generation starved for creative risk taking and unbound joy.”
