Exclusive: Fastfade Premiere ‘Walkie Talkie’ Video & Announce Debut Album

Enfield’s scrappiest skate-punks get wet and wild in their new music video.

Fastfade are hard not to love. Taking influence from Frenzal Rhomb, MxPx, early Greenday and decent-era Blink 182, these three young Londoners are the edgy, exciting injection of energy that the UK skate-punk scene needs.

Walkie Talkie is the first single from their debut album Happy If You Aren’t, which will be released through Umlaut Records on Friday 14th December. They’re celebrating the release with a launch party supporting No Fun At All at London’s New Cross Inn on December 19th.

“Walkie Talkie is one of our slower but more hard hitting songs, proving that we don’t only play at 260bpm and sing about getting dumped or something,” said Fastfade about the single. “With this song we tried to show off a little bit of everything that we could do and to make something so catchy it sticks in your head and pisses you off a little.” Continue reading “Exclusive: Fastfade Premiere ‘Walkie Talkie’ Video & Announce Debut Album”

Goodbye Blue Monday announce major announcement.

Yesterday Scottish misery-punks Goodbye Blue Monday announced that they would be making a major announcement at 7pm CET.

As the forefront of punk rock in-jokes, Shout Louder is proud to bring you this exclusive announcement of an announcement.

Goodbye Blue Monday are finished… with their tour.

Following an incredible five show extravaganza, taking in Beligum, London and Shout Louder’s kitchen, Goodbye Blue Monday will be heading home for a well-deserved sleep, tattie scones and hugs with their dogs.

When asked about their tour, singer Graham Lough commented, “It was a time.”

We wish the boys all the best with their announcement of an announcement and with their trip home.

 

Exclusive: Haest Premiere Video For ‘I Didn’t Throw A Single Stone And I Still Got Pissed On’

South Coast hardcore punk act Haest burst onto the scene with their new video!

Shout Louder are proud to bring you the first single from new Hastings’ hardcore act Haest. The band have burst onto the scene with their first release: EP#1, which is available on Bandcamp for pay-what-you-want.

“I Didn’t Throw A Single Stone And I Still Got Pissed On is basically about lying politicians and the media,” explained vocalist, Dave Cullern. “Tricking people into being stupid or making stupid choices, like Brexit, Trump or being racist…. and the damage that does to the world.”

Or, as guitarist, Dan Flanagan, put it: “It’s about a cunt called Amber Rudd.”

Either way, pop this on your stereo, sit back and watch Haest blow up.

Exclusive: The Human Project Premiere Video And Announce Tour

Be the first to see the latest video from Leeds’ tech-punks The Human Project for ‘Pride Before A Fall’, plus get the latest on their UK + Euro tour.

We’re proud to share the new video from Leed’s premiere technical melodic hardore act The Human Project!

Pride Before A Fall is the latest single to be released from their second full-length album Clarion Call. To add emphasis to the subject matter of the song, the video is stripped back and claustrophobic. Guitarist, Luke Yates, explained his inspiration for the track:

Pride Before A Fall is an unusually personal song for me. It started out life as a rant against one complete stranger on a train to Leeds once, who was laughing very loudly to his mate about the recent sad death of the actor Robin Williams, and how he couldn’t believe that someone so rich and famous could possibly have anything to be sad about.

It just so happened that I’d been reading that morning about the high rate of ill mental health and suicide in the financial services sector in the UK’s biggest cities. The article focussed on young men in their 20s and early 30s who were keen to impress their bosses by working insane hours, and by never showing any outward signs of ‘weakness’.

Not to judge a book by its cover, but this guy fitted the bill perfectly – clearly a city office worker, keen that everyone should hear his view that Williams ‘only had himself to blame’.

It struck me that he perhaps didn’t realise that he was, statistically, in a group particularly at-risk of extreme mental health issues, and that maybe if he was aware of this, he might wind his neck in a bit, but I guess probably not…

All of this made me pretty angry and upset, due to the fact that an old school friend of mine who I’d only recently reconnected with, had taken his own life just weeks earlier, having last been seen on that same service to Leeds.

The second prechorus centres around another old friend with a similar story, who, weirdly, I bumped into for the first time in years on that same Leeds train just days before she passed away.”

“The song is a call for empathy and humility, and for consideration of the other humans around you.”
