Demon Hunter has released the official music video for the song ‘Cut To Fit’. The track is taken from the band’s latest album “War”, which was made available alongside a companion LP, “Peace”, in March 2019. The video is produced by Jeremiah Scott, mixed by Zeuss & directed, filmed, and edited by Andy Maier.

Frontman Ryan Clark told Full Metal Jackie‘s nationally syndicated radio show that releasing two separate albums “with the polarized styles” that Demon Hunter is known for — “heavy and the super-melodic ‘ballad’-style songs” — is something he and his bandmates have “talked about doing for a long time.” He explained: “We didn’t want to do it too early in our career just because it felt like a lofty sort of endeavor. So we didn’t want to get carried away too early. So now kind of rounding out our albums at No. 9 and No. 10, seems like a really good time to do it.”

The official music video for ‘Dying To Live’, a new song from Sevendust, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Jensen Noen, known for his work with Falling In Reverse, Crown The Empire and Asking Alexandria, to name a few. The track is taken from Sevendust‘s 13th studio album, “Blood & Stone”, which will be released on October 23 via Rise Records. The follow-up to 2018’s “All I See Is War” was once again tracked at Studio Barbarosa in Gotha, Florida with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, who has previously worked with Alter Bridge and Slash, among others.

From the pulsating intro of opener ‘Dying To Live’ to the album-closing cover of Soundgarden‘s ‘The Day I Tried To Live’, Sevendust continues to push the sound it has made their own for more than 25 years. Tracks like ‘Love’, ‘Blood From A Stone’, ‘Kill Me’ and ‘Against The World’ showcases why the band has been adored by fans and critics alike. Lajon Witherspoon, Clint Lowery, John Connolly, Vince Hornsby and Morgan Rose have raised the bar with “Blood & Stone”. The new music fits perfectly alongside with the bands most seminal tracks that have become the cornerstone of the band’s live performances.

Bands/Artists are having a hard time this year due to the Covid-19 outbreak – That’s why many artists are giving a virtual concert – So is Glenn Kaiser (Rez band/Glenn Kaiser band) last weekend (Oct. 16) Kaiser says:

BIG Thanks to Grrr Records staff and all who viewed my Virtual Show last night (or later depending on when you are reading this)!

In Covid time I think about the emotional and other tolls so many are suffering. I also believe it essential we mask up, keep six feet apart and wash our hands consistently. Distance is a real pain but there are worse pains that have included virtual funeral/memorial services for more than 200,000 people, their families and friends here in the U.S. alone.

In light of all this, last night I popped a new song into the show, just a sung/blues-harp blowin’ number. If you watched or do, here are those lyrics.
