JUPITER HOLLOW – Hades Heart

JUPITER HOLLOW are gearing up to release their debut EP “Odyssey” that will be distributed by Milagro Records and due out on January 13, 2017.

The concept record will feature 5 tracks to introduce their Ambient, Experimental, Progressive songwriting plus will act as a prelude to their planned full length “AHDOMN”.

JUPITER HOLLOW’s sound is usually referred to as spacey, experimental and refreshing, reminding listeners of bands like Tool, Pink Floyd, A Perfect Circle, Tesseract, The Contortionists and Rush.

The duo states:

This EP is a concept record, it will tell the story about two characters fighting one another in order to save their civilizations, but they just can’t do it. They’re in control of their civilizations future, but then you actually find out that there’s only one person, who’s actually fighting with themselves. They’re unhappy with who they are when they look in the mirror and realize they can’t grow past their indifference, and that they actually aren’t a good person and the people from their civilization will die.

THEOCRACY – Wishing Well

THEOCRACY released a lyric video for the track ‘Wishing Well’, taken from their new album “Ghost Ship”.

The album will be released on October 28th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records.

Vocalist Matt Smith stated:

So many kids were coming up to us after shows and telling us their stories, a lot of them were searching for purpose and a place to fit in, and having grown up as an awkward and unpopular kid myself, their words really stuck with me. I started thinking about what a band of misfits Jesus’ disciples were:  fishermen, tax collectors, and people of little consequence in the eyes of the world. Sometimes the ones most people don’t see, or choose to look straight through—the ghosts of society, as it were, dead to the world—end up having the biggest impact. That’s where the title and idea for Ghost Ship came from: all the misfits, the uncool, the outcasts, there is a place where you do fit in. Although Ghost Ship is not a concept album, this is a recurring theme, particularly in the title track and ‘Castaway.’”
