THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT ANNOUNCE NOVEMBER UK TOUR

British rock and rollers THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have announced a back-to-the-roots UK tour, which is due to kick off on November 6th in Chester.

Following a whirlwind few years in which the band released two Top 20 albums, toured around the world and shared the stage with rock megastars such as THE ROLLING STONES, THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have decided to reconnect with their home audience with an exclusive run of dates around the UK, where they'll be playing in smaller venues than usual in order to create a more intimate experience for both band and fans alike.

The band will also be reaching parts of the country they haven't been to for some time and will be treating fans to brand new music as they continue to work on the follow-up to 2016's 'White Bear'.

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT guitarist Paul Sayer comments:
"This tour is all about us getting out in the UK and connecting with those fans all over the country that helped us build the band.  It's about getting up close and personal with those guys.  We've got loads of new material to play as well as there's nowhere better than a sweaty club to road test some new music!  Can't bloody wait..."

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, with exclusive pre-sales on Wednesday and Thursday.  Head to http://www.thetemperancemovement.com/live for links.

ENTOMBED 'LEFT HAND PATH' & CARCASS 'NECROTICISM' FULL DYNAMIC RANGE VINYL REISSUES OUT NOW

ENTOMBED's legendary debut 'Left Hand Path', along with CARCASS' classic third album 'Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious', have been reissued on Full Dynamic Range vinyl and are available to purchase once again.

Earache Records revolutionised the way music fans can enjoy their favourite metal albums several years ago with the launch of the Full Dynamic Range (FDR) format.  A counteraction to the "Loudness Wars", Full Dynamic Range vinyl ensures that fans hear the music as it was intended to sound - pure and organic audio pressed straight to 180-gram vinyl from the original studio analogue or DAT tapes.

After the original FDR pressings of ENTOMBED's 'Left Hand Path' and CARCASS' 'Necroticism' quickly sold out, fans have since been clamouring for another pressing, and are now able to get their hands on these metal classics once more.

Originally released in 1990, ENTOMBED's 'Left Hand Path' defined the "Swedish sound" replicated by hundreds of other acts and came to represent the primal death metal sound that was to break through into the mainstream in the early '90s.  ENTOMBED were the first extreme metal band to enter the charts in their native Sweden, before becoming an international success.

Get 'Left Hand Path' now on Full Dynamic Range vinyl at http://webstore.earache.com/entombed

Liverpool's death metal pioneers CARCASS are often credited with shaping the entire genre, pushing boundaries with their shocking imagery whilst evolving and innovating with each new album.  1991's 'Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious' is the band's third album and the first to feature guitarist Michael Amott (ARCH ENEMY, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, CARNAGE).

Get 'Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious' now on Full Dynamic Range vinyl at http://webstore.earache.com/carcass

The next titles due for FDR represses are BOLT THROWER's 'War Master' and TERRORIZER's 'World Downfall', which are both due to be released on July 21st.

BITERS UNVEIL OFFICIAL "STONE COLD LOVE" MUSIC VIDEO

Atlanta's rock n' roll punks BITERS, whose new studio album, 'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' was released Friday, have unveiled a brand new video for lead single, "Stone Cold Love".  Watch the clip, directed by longtime collaborator Video Rahim, here - http://youtu.be/slBjGh00Yec

BITERS recently returned home after blazing a trail across the UK and Europe with their electrifying live shows.  Their 24-date tour supporting labelmates BLACKBERRY SMOKE saw them playing to over 50,000 music fans, including a date at London's iconic Roundhouse.

BITERS frontman Tuk tells us about how "Stone Cold Love" came to be; "I sat down with my buddy Scott (Stevens) to write a tune.  We sat for hours trying to come up with something that felt perfect, but were hitting a dead end.  We said 'fuck it' and went to his local hang out, ate some cornbread, drank a few beers and talked about music.  We spoke about T. Rex, Queen and Slade, shit like that, how cool those big drum grooves were.  Right then a light bulb went off and we headed back to the studio with a fresh start and within hours finished writing the song, demoed it and tracked lead vocals!  I was so fucking delirious I couldn't tell if it was good or not.  A few weeks later, Scott sent me the finished demo while I was on tour in Kansas.  I remember cranking it in the van outside of this fake old wild west town and thinking, 'Goddamn, this is so good!'"

'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' was produced by Dan Dixon and is the follow-up to 2015's critically acclaimed 'Electric Blood'.  You can grab the album digitally at iTunes - http://bit.ly/bitersfuture-itunes or pick up signed copies, bundles and lovely vinyl from http://www.earache.com/biters

BITERS: NEW ALBUM 'THE FUTURE AIN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE' OUT NOW WORLDWIDE

'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be', the brand new studio album from Atlanta rock 'n' rollers BITERS, is out now worldwide on CD, vinyl and digital platforms.

Described as "stomping rock n' roll, sprinkled with stardust", BITERS make swaggering, stadium-ready anthems in the spirit of the glam, power pop and hard rock gods of the '70s, from T. REX to CHEAP TRICK to AC/DC.  'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' is packed with some of the catchiest songs of the year - but the magic lies in the attitude behind the hooks.  BITERS' strut and style transports us to a time when bands looked like bands and acted like gangs.

BITERS frontman Tuk recently said of the new album: "I knew I wanted to do something totally different to 'Electric Blood'.  It's very easy to get sidetracked as an artist and especially easy to lose perspective with so many people giving you advice and critique.  For this album, I wanted to go back to the reason I started this band back in 2010 - my love for early '70s glam rock, power pop and those big, anthemic sing-alongs are where my heart feels most home.  I wanted to take risks and really wear my heart on my sleeve this time around."

Get 'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' now on vinyl and limited edition signed CD at http://www.earache.com/biters

The album is also available now on iTunes at http://bit.ly/bitersfuture-itunes

'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' was recorded with Dan Dixon (WYLDLIFE, WHORES), mixed by Dan Dixon and Scott Stevens (HALESTORM, SHINEDOWN), and mastered by Stephen Marcussen (JOHNNY CASH, THE ROLLING STONES, TOM PETTY).
