The Shrine: : Unveil video; conspires with CONVERSE, OBEY Clothing, MARSHALL Headphones and more!

THE SHRINE UNVEIL VIDEO FOR "COMING DOWN QUICK" PREMIERED VIA NOISEY BAND CONSPIRES WITH MARSHALL HEADPHONES, CONVERSE, OBEY CLOTHING AND MORE NEW ALBUM RARE BREED OUT JANUARY 15, 2016 ON CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS STREAM // EMBED "COMING DOWN QUICK" VIDEO Venice Beach, CA's purveyors of psychedelic violence, The Shrine, have released the video for "Coming Down Quick" from their upcoming Century Media Records debut, Rare Breed. The record will see a release on January 15, 2016 (with extended content) in North America. The video premiered via Noisey, and it is below: Produced by Dave Jerden (the venerated knobsman behind such classics as Alice In Chains' Dirt, Jane's Addition's Nothing's Shocking, Social Distortion's self-titled, The Offspring's Ixnay On The Hombre and Eno/Byrne's My Life In The Bush of Ghosts) and recorded through the very amp that Greg Ginn recorded Black Flag's Damaged on, Rare Breed exists in a space that once was was bleeding with razor sharp lines separating punks, metal heads and hippies, where a violent clash in the parking lot of the Cuckoo's Nest was inevitable. The album, which has a street date of January 15, 2016 (with extended content) in the US and is out now in the rest of the world, is available for physical pre-order in a variety of packages, including special edition merchandise and music product such as limited edition test pressing vinyl (with individual artwork), a coffin-style skate deck, and even an American GI style hand-painted Rare Breed war helmet. The album can also be pre-ordered from iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and CM Distro. On January 15th in Los Angeles, the band will host "The Rare Breed Experience," a special record release party flashback trip to another dimension -- stay tuned for more details, and RSVP to the event on Facebook HERE. The "Coming Down Quick" premiere follows hot on the heels of Noisey's "Death To Invaders" video premiere, marking another notch in a banner year for the Shrine that has seen brands like Converse (who commissioned Landau to create a custom shoe) and Marshall Headphones hand-pick the group to become featured artists. Over the course of their last two records, 2012's Primitive Blast and 2014's Bless Off, (both released on Tee Pee Records), The Shrine has captured the hearts and minds of hardcores, heshers, and skaters alike. After spending the better part of the last two years riding hot rails from hell around the U.S., Australia, Japan, and Europe (including a trip to Russia), The Shrine have found a kindred soul in producer Dave Jerden. He stumbled into Timewarp Guitar Shop on Venice Blvd., where The Shrine performed their debut show at in 2009 and heard their record playing. They quickly shared a mutual obsession over Captain Beyond, The Pretty Things, and The Battle Raven & Nightmare Queen, and the group began to write and rehearse with that in mind. The results are pure California Jam '74 meets Suicidal skate rock being force-fed the brown acid by Charles Manson. Fresh off of headlining tours of Japan and Australia, a stint on Motörhead's Motörboat Cruise and an epic 16-city trek with Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity, the group is now in Europe with Kadavar and Horisont.

Entombed A.D.: : announce new album!

ENTOMBED A.D. announce new album In 2014, Entombed-founding member L-G Petrov returned Back To The front with the band's revitalized yet still lethal new incarnation ENTOMBED A.D., which also consists of Nico Elgstrand (guitar), Victor Brandt (bass), and Olle Dahlstedt (drums). Just 18 months later, fans worldwide can expect the follow-up record, entitled Dead Dawn, set for international release via Century Media Records on February 26th, 2016. A first single will be released in mid-December and shortly before the album's release, the ENTOMBED A.D. commando will present the new material alongside classic tracks on tour, Bassist Victor Brandt comments: "We are really looking forward to get out of the studio and hit the road with our friends in Behemoth, Abbath, and Inquisition. It's a really cool package, every band is bringing their A game and I can promise you that you do not want to miss this. There's gonna be a few surprises on the setlist and we're hitting the stage as a five-piece. See you in the pit and/or at the bar! Cheers!" Guitarist and co-producer Nico Elgstrand reveals the following regarding the recordings of Dead Dawn: "After festering an eon inside the belly of the beast, it finally disposed of us. I'm not gonna tell you out of which orifice we were spawned, but I will tell you it was demeaning in the true sense of the word. From this horrible experience came the urge to express ourselves through sound and so we did. Now, it's done and we can only look proudly back on what we have created: a damn sinister sounding record. You might not be able to comprehend it, but you won't be able to deny it either!" Watch out for a deadly dawn of metal - 2016 is going to be heavy!

However, we have never before had the chance to play with a real orchestra in a live situation, so it was very exciting to have the opportunity to play with the Plovdiv Philharmonic and doing that in such a prestigious location as the Roman theatre." From "Gothic" over "Joys Of Emptiness" to "Soul Courageous", "Last Regret" or "Victim Of The Past", "Symphony For The Lost" spans the entire facets of the unique Paradise Lost sound, yet expands their trademark doom 'n' gloom with a classical dimension.
