Alternative rock band To Kill Achilles have shared the video for the new single “Rats,” out now via Arising Empire.

Watch the video below:

Stream the track here.

“Rats” is an antithesis of previous material, and for far too long, the band told the story of mental degradation without hope. Becoming completely drained repeating the same lines of how it hurts to be here, this new material deals with courage, control, acceptance, and ultimately the end goal that anyone in this circumstance seeks — the other side. This is the journey of getting better, taking control of your life, and the experiences around you.

The band previously released Something To Remember Me By back in 2020. Listen here.

Progressive metalcore head-turners INVENT ANIMATE are gearing up for the imminent release of their new album HEAVENER. It arrives March 17 via UNFD. Pre-order it here.

They’ve just shared the video for the new single “Without a Whisper.” Watch it below:

The song tackles a deeply personal topic and invites some intense introspection. The visual finds the band performing while once again cloaked in neutral attire and surrounded by florals that represent the ebbs and flows of nature. 

“‘Without a Whisper’ is about my grandmother dying, and me having to confront death for the first time,” says guitarist Keaton Goldwire. “As someone who’s not religious, it was the first time I had to really ask myself what happens in the after life. The song is me hoping, even though I don’t believe, that she’s in a place like heaven. ‘I know I’ve been there before with you’ is my way of saying I know we’ve been together in happiness, in a state I imagine as heaven before.”
