Azusa‘s official music video for their latest single ‘Monument’ has now received its online premiere. The group are comprised of members and alumni of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Extol and Sea + Air. The band’s new studio album, “Loop Of Yesterdays“, will be released on April 10th 2020 through Solid State Records in North America and Asia, and through Indie Recordings everywhere else.

“‘Monument’ is a mid-tempo banger about false idols, hypocrisy, and the shortcomings of faith systems as a one-size-fits-all recipe for the ‘correct’ ways of living,” the band members explain in a joint statement. The video sees the group thrashing and contorting as they tear through the song, shrouded in smoke; in intercut footage, a mysterious robed figure worships and exalts inside a old, orthodox church.”

Roxx Records is stoked to be able to bring you a very limited edition pressing of the debut release from 20 lb Sledge. If you recently picked up and enjoyed the new album “Electric Exodus” you are in for a treat to hear the debut album from this amazing band.

If you’re not familiar, its sound is wave after wave of sonic body blows, grizzly gospel, stone grinding grooves, and a well-balanced dose of glycemic melodies. The formula yields a sound that’s sweet a little bit like the God given gift of freedom with grit it takes to keep it. The lyrics are barked out with a bite of sharp toothed proclamation while keeping the mood in the light, and also adding syrupy melodies to the formula. 20 lb Sledge relates multi generationally, from snotty teens to old farts. 20 lb Sledge doesn’t promote anger, debauchery, misogyny, or butt hurt! It’s a dirty sound with a clean message!
