New Releases: For The Fallen Dreams, The Word Alive, Memphis May Fire, Hands, City Of Ships
In this week's edition of new releases, the Noisecreep circus took a look back into last week to check out how metal is reacting with the masses. With a little help from our friends at Metal Insider, some great debuts were recently posted on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, including a #42 debut from Metal Blade's very own Job For A Cowboy, with 10,600 copies sold in its first week. Sumerian Records' Born Of Osiris debuted at #73 with their latest, 'A Higher Place,' while veterans Poison The Well pulled in first week sales of 2,700 with their latest for Ferret, titled 'The Tropic Rot.' What can we look for this week? Well we're glad you asked.
For The Fallen Dreams - 'Relentless' - Rise
A trip to this year's Warped Tour tipped us off to For The Fallen Dreams, who carry that special something. The metalcore outfit drop their latest effort today and it's recommended for fans of Bury Your Dead, Emmure, crazy graphic T-shirts and mesh basketball shorts.
The Word Alive - 'Empire' EP - Fearless
The Word Alive debuted their first EP from the same label that initially brought you The Human Abstract and this Phoenix, Ariz. sextet returns with their latest. Combining some intense technical instrumentation with high (and we mean really high) pitched screams, we can't help but wonder why Arizona bands are so good? Is there something in the water out West?
Memphis May Fire - 'Sleepwalking' -
