Synaptik Release New Video 'White Circle' Plus New Album 'Justify & Reason' Hits UK Stores!



Synaptik New "White Circles" Video Released & "Justify & Reason" in UK stores today!


British heavy metal five-piece, Synaptik from Norwich, UK unleashed their anticipated sophomore album, “Justify & Reason” on March 10th 2017 worldwide digitally through Defox records and physically in the US via Divebomb records but today (April 10th) it lands in various UK stores!

To promote the release of their new album "Justify & Reason" being available in stores across the UK today (April 10th) through Plastic Head Distribution, they have just dropped an official lyric video for their third single taken from the album for "White Circles".



Vocalist, John Knight had this to say about the lyrical meaning behind the new song:
“Lyrically the song describes the story of one person’s dependency on medication, antipsychotic drugs, the decision whether to stop taking them and return to a natural state risking confusion and illness or to continue on, the side effects, the withdrawals, the risks. All overseen by the ‘god like’ Psychiatrist. Singer John Knight worked for many years within the Mental Health system at management level and witnessed how the clients saw and described their experiences, “I spoke at length with a client about her feelings towards her medication and her Psychiatrist, she told me her Psychiatrist was ‘like a God’, someone who oversaw all the choices she made and controlled her life, it made an impression and I wrote this song that night, of course not every story is the same and medication plays a very important and useful part of people's life, it’s not an anti-medication song at all, but about the conflict a person has, the internal battle……telling themselves ’I’m well now, I don’t need these tablets’ without realising they feel this way because the medication is working, the side effects both being on and withdrawing can be severe”.

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…
