  Brighton’s Industrial / Post Metal band Tribe Of Ghosts have today shared a brand new single titled ‘HIVE’. ‘HIVE’ is an all out barrage of frenetic and furious sound design and a vicious addition to Tribe Of Ghosts genre-melting discography that depicts a first person view of a world spoilt by dehumanisation and barbarous oppression. “When we were writing Hive, we felt that we were at a point where we understood our sound and what we wanted to create. With this in mind, we wanted to craft a song that sets the scene of the world that we build with our music, that explores the electronic and the organic, and declares our intent of giving into the chaos that oozes out of us on stage and in the writing process." - Guitarist Adam Sedgwick. Watch the official visualizer right here: Tribe Of Ghosts have released ‘HIVE’ ahead of their appearance at this years ‘Bloodstock Open Air’ Festival. The band will be performing on the Sophie Lancaster stage on Saturday 12th August 2023. Tribe

I needed to withdraw from the noise, in a world where everything was falling apart. No internet. No cable. No cell phone service. You truly have to be prepared for that type of silence. If you aren't comfortable inside your own head, the silence can swallow you whole. I welcomed it. I let the calm and quiet slowly drag me under. The only sound I could hear was the gentle roar of a creek that was behind the cabin, knifing through the desperate forest that I

  Following the release of standalone tracks ‘Seer’ and ‘fasterthanyourthoughts’ earlier this year, NORTH ATLAS have announced their new single ‘ Superego ’, along with a vibrant performance video. The Scottish fellowship often draw creative influence from the folklore of their homelands, whilst also touching on topics of a neurodivergent nature and deeper inward analysis, to create a blistering blend of hard rock and electronica drawing heavily from influences such as Biffy Clyro and Nine Inch Nails. See the video for ‘Superego’: “According to Freud, the Superego acts as our moral compass, what he calls the Id describes the drives for primal behaviour, while the regular Ego works to strike a balance between those two needs. The Superego strives for a sort of moral perfection, so I suppose that means there’s usually a cost for what you want. This song is about not paying for what you want by sacrificing your own values.” Leon Hunter - Vocals NORTH ATLAS have also announced their long
