The Body Politic Release 'Parasoul' Video

(HR) The Body Politic have released a new music video for their single, "Parasoul". The song comes from group's contr:addiction EP, which was released last year.

Spencer Bowman had this to say about the track and video, "'Parasoul' is a song about pain. Our director Mike perfectly captured the bitterness, sadness, and anger in the song with his treatment of the video. Our latest album explores the world of addiction, and how substance abuse only temporarily masks pain."
"A parallel can be drawn to the video for 'Parasoul' as it illustrates how vengeance is unsatisfying, and only masks the damage that motivates it. If revenge is used as the antidote, the pain remains." Watch it

Classic Joni Mitchell Show Coming To Blu-Ray

Eagle Vision have announced that they will be releasing Joni Mitchell Both Sides Now: Live At The Isle of Wight Festival on Blu-ray and Digital Video on September 14th. We were sent the following details:

Joni Mitchell is a unique creative force, a female troubadour who has led the way for countless female artists with an enduring legacy of musical sophistication. She has been named "one of the greatest songwriters everů" by Rolling Stone magazine and is a 9-time Grammy Award winner.

In 1970, the Isle of Wight Festival was one of the largest musical events of its time. Bigger than Woodstock, and controversial from the get-go, hundreds of thousands of people descended on the island. Many of those without tickets set up camp on a hill overlooking the festival site, opposing the consumerism of the event and intent on "taking the music back" by any means necessary. It was a celebration of hippy counter culture gone awry, and in Joni's words "they fed me to the beast." Read more here.

Singled Out: Living Machines' The Valkyrie V2

Living Machines' Quinn McGraw (Drums & Vocals) tells us about the story behind their track The Valkyrie V2. Here is the story:

The Valkyrie V2 is a bonus version of the original song The Valkyrie, from our debut EP I: After Onyx (later released in a bonus "Declassified Booster Pack" with two songs on it.) We had parted ways with our old vocalist shortly before releasing our debut EP. After bringing in our new front man Ryan Card, we figured we'd rock a bit of an unplugged version of a song from the EP to give him a proper introduction.

All of our music is based on a comic book series I'm writing called Gemini: A Tale of Future Earth. That being said, all lyrical themes and content pertain to the story. I try my best to write character moments in the books so that the lyrics can have a relatable element to them - which will be very apparent in the new EP we're presently writing.

This song in particular takes place between two characters in the story, James Gearheart and Luther Vance, as they have an intimate conversation about the fate of the human race. They discuss how to end a war that has spanned almost 5 years, but Luther can't end the war by himself and needs James' help in virtually every way possible.

Lyrically, the themes at hand are about confiding in our closest friends in the darkest of days; trusting those near to us in hopes that by coming together they can alleviate our suffering, personally and in the world. Additionally, it lyrically illustrates perceiving war and wanting it to end.

After recording the song, we brought it to Jordan Chase (Secret & Whisper / Shreddy Kreuger) to produce the single. He helped us build vocal melodies and really bring the production to a new level for us. Our working relationship with him was so smooth that he is taking on doing our new EP as well!

Tons of new things in the works, so thanks for checking out our latest single and be sure to keep an eye out for new content coming your way this fall!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
