Parcels release joyous new single ‘Comingback’

Parcels have released their second track for the year, ‘Comingback’, along with an accompanying music video.

‘Comingback’ follows on from the band’s previous single, ‘Free’, which arrived last month. Following its release, Parcels shared a live performance of the track, filmed in the small Australian town of Silverton.

The song’s music video was directed by Oliver Rose, who has previously worked on several of the band’s clips as a director of photography. It sees the band members dancing and singing through part of the Australian outback.

In a statement, the band said ‘Comingback’ was one of the band’s earliest ideas following their last album, yet one of the last songs to be completed after being rewritten a number of times.

“When the time came to record it at La Frette, there was an arrangement worked out but no singing melody which we felt could match the furious energy of Toto and Pedro’s rhythms,” they said.

“Determined, it was written and rewritten many times, long after we finished everything else on the album, melodies and singers interchanged constantly.

“Eventually, Noah brought a new power to the verse as well as a message we could all relate to, and together we finished it the night before boarding the plane to Australia.”

The band’s last studio album was their self-titled debut in 2018. In a five-star review, NME described the record as “cheeky, timeless and devilishly catchy”. They’ve since released a new live album, and the EP ‘IknowhowIfeel’.

(hennemusic) ZZ Top have announced that bassist Dusty Hill has been temporarily sidelined from the band’s North American tour so that he can receive treatment on his hip.

“The members of ZZ Top, Billy, and Frank, would like to share that Dusty, their fearless Bass player, is on a short detour back to Texas, to address a hip issue,” shared the pair on social media on July 23. “They await a speedy recovery and have him back pronto.

“Per Dusty’s request, ‘The show must go on!'” With that directive, ZZ Top has put the services of Mr. Elwood Francis, their trusted guitar tech of the past two decades, into play with his slide guitar, bass guitar, and harmonica playing in full swing.”

“And with Elwood to our right, rest assured ZZ Top will deliver their good time, signature show”, adds Gibbons. “Billy’s big guitar, crushing drums from Mr. Beard, and Elwood securing the bottom end continues the delivery with those famous three chords we all dig.”

ZZ Top – who launched the 2021 tour at the Delaware County Fair in Manchester, IA on July 16 – played their first show with Francis in the lineup at the Village Commons in New Lenox, IL on July 23; the trek marks the Texas band’s first live shows since an appearance at the San Antonio Stock Show And Rodeo on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.

Amyl And The Sniffers dance with the dead in video for new track ‘Security’

Amyl And The Sniffers have released a new single called ‘Security’ – you can watch the track’s wild video below.

The Australian punks, led by captivating frontwoman Amy Taylor, announced earlier this month that they will release ‘Comfort To Me’, the follow-up to their 2019 self-titled debut album, on September 10 via Rough Trade Records.

Written during lockdown, the second record from the Melbourne band sees them expanding the influences on their sound – with the likes of AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Motörhead and Wendy O Williams all said to be part of their musical palette this time around.

Today (July 28), Amyl And The Sniffers have shared new track ‘Security’, the follow-up to ‘Guided By Angels’, the lead single from the band’s forthcoming LP. The fiery new track is accompanied by a video that sees Taylor dancing frantically around a graveyard.

Shot and directed by John Angus Stewart, you can watch the video for ‘Security’ below:

On October 5, Amyl and The Sniffers will premiere a filmed performance of ‘Comfort To Me’, played in full, in one take, on a slab of concrete in a suburban wasteland somewhere in Melbourne, Australia. Tickets are available on the band’s webstore here.

Describing the album, Taylor said: “If you have to explain what this record is like, I reckon it’s like watching an episode of The Nanny but the setting is an Australian car show and the Nanny cares about social issues and she’s read a couple of books, and Mr Sheffield is drinking beer in the sun.

“It’s a Mitsubishi Lancer going slightly over the speed limit in a school zone. It’s realising how good it is to wear track pants in bed.  It’s having someone who wants to cook you dinner when you’re really shattered. It’s me shadow-boxing on stage, covered in sweat, instead of sitting quietly in the corner.”

Check out the tracklist for ‘Comfort To Me’ below:

1. ‘Guided By Angels’
2. ‘Freaks To The Front’
3. ‘Choices’
4. ‘Security’
5. ‘Hertz’
6. ‘No More Tears’
7. ‘Maggot’
