November 20th, 2017

Dutch hardcore band 18 MILES has teamed up with Dreambound to premiere the video for their head-cracking new single ‘Millennial Waste’.

After three releases, debut album ‘Darker Times’ (2013) and conceptual two-piece ‘Revive’ (2015) and ‘The Grey’ (2017), the quintet presents ‘Millennial Waste’. A song that speaks up about the struggles the millennial generation, the generation that grew up with the rise of the internet, has to deal with.

Singer Daan says ‘social division seems a bigger problem than ever. Depression and burnouts are the new trend. Never finish an education or a job, because the lack of persistence that is not taught anymore. ‘Take for example social media’, he continues. ‘People need likes on social media to get confidence, while trying to achieve the same perfect, successful, but totally unrealistic images they are constantly bombarded with online and in the media. This results in a twisted sense of self in a reality that is not real.’

‘People really having trouble with finding a goal and meaning in this life’, Daan concludes. ‘Everybody wants to make a difference in this world, while nobody dares to stand out.’

WITHIN TEMPTATION will embark on a European tour in the fall of 2018. The trek will take the band to 33 cities in 18 countries and will end the longest break WITHIN TEMPTATION has ever taken from touring.

WITHIN TEMPTATION singer Sharon Den Adel explains: "When our last tour finished, I was having a rough time. I realized I needed take some time out with my family to deal with things and to rediscover myself. It took much longer than expected, but two years on, things have changed for the better. I created my solo album ('My Indigo') which helped me deal with my issues. And afterwards I suddenly found myself with an aching hunger again for more heavy, epic music. Then the music started to come by itself. I knew for sure that our seventh album was coming after all. So here we are... presenting our seventh tour, and luckily it's not going to take so long anymore, because we are all more than impatient to get out there again!"

Rick Savage [bass] has one, a verse that he sent me. I was messing around with some melodies for that too, and Joe [Elliott, vocals] has this amazing idea and I have this one that's kind of finished. I have melodies, a chorus and all the guitar parts. So we've started, officially, without even knowing it, the next DEF LEPPARD album."

A coming out everyone saw coming for the ones who didn't already read about it. THE DARKNESS singer Justin Hawkins has released a video in which he praises his vegan lifestyle. Hawkins credits his wife with educating him about the cruelty inflicted on animals in today's meat, egg, and dairy industries — and he proudly reveals that his entire family has gone vegan. "There's a lot of substitutes that do simulate meat, but there's also some brilliant vegetables that mother nature has invented, so I don't think there are any excuses, really," he says. Hawkins is part of a long list of celebrities — including Travis Barker, Davey Havok, Paul McCartney, Moby, Rob Zombie, RZA and Jona Weinhofen — who have teamed up with PETA or one of its affiliates to promote healthy and humane vegan meals.

I see the light at the tunnel coming because we are getting close with the first show, which is Philadelphia. The only thing we can do is like work on it until it gets good cause this is our first DVD ever released and we want it to be representable for what we are doing. The footage we are going to use is the last few years lives shows and there is going to be some side footage too I believe but I'm not sure exactly what but mainly from the Abigail performances we did in the last couple of years. I hope its going to be released next spring, if everything goes the way we want it. "

"We are going to release this new Live King Diamond DVD next year we are still working on that, there are a lot of files to go through, lots of scenes angles and stuff of the shows that we are going to release so, there is a lot of work to do. I can't really say too much about it, I'm not the only guy in charge we've got the video producer. We also have our live engineer in charge who has been setting everything up to get the real live feel of it. The video producer sent me some files that I have to check out make sure everything is in sync back and forth, we are still working on it . I see the light at the tunnel coming because we are getting close with the first show, which is Philadelphia. The only thing we can do is like work on it until it gets good cause this is our first DVD ever released and we want it to be representable for what we are doing. The footage we are going to use is the last few years lives shows and there is going to be some side footage too I believe but I'm not sure exactly what but mainly from the Abigail performances we did in the last couple of years. I hope its going to be released next spring, if everything goes the way we want it. "
