Set Your Anchor release new music video for “Moving Mountains”

Set Your Anchor, one of Artery Global‘s latest signings, has debuted their new music video for their single “Moving Mountains” which can be seen below.


The San Bernardino, CA quartet has been pushing the boundaries of melodic hardcore since 2009 and their latest offering brings the same intensity matched with heavy hitting grooves. Produced by Kelly Cairns (As I Lay Dying), the urgent and aggressive vocals come in underneath an almost delicate guitar riff and it sets a manic tone for the rest of the song.

This song is about being trapped inside of your own head, struggling with anxiety and depression,” says vocalist Brandon Heatley. “Trying to treat it with whatever means necessary but, even then the thoughts and depression still continues to grow becoming more of a problem each day, and one day hoping for a change.

The band is currently on tour with HOODS

Stephen Rutishauser of Chelsea Grin Interviewed @ Warped Tour in Mountain View, California

Stephen Rutishauser of Chelsea Grin shares his thoughts on genital harassment, favorite music press and more with Amber Rose of Capital Chaos TV @ Vans Warped Tour.

A Chelsea Grin in soccer hooligan terminology is the act of cutting a rivals mouth with either a credit card or blade and then kicking them in the crotch so their mouth muscles split into a bloody grimace. Chelsea Grin, the band from Utah armed with THREE guitarists use a foundation of hardcore grit combined with death metal technicality and grind speed to produce as much aural harm as the back alley jaw split.

Myka, Relocate and the Fountain of Youth.

We met in their trailer at the back of the Boardwalk in Orangevale California. Now I did my research, checked these guys out online, but I always get a sense of awkwardness at the very start. That awkwardness quickly dissipated as I found both of these young souls to be just as welcoming and friendly as they are on social media.

One of the worst things can possibly happen when interviewing a musician, is have the audio fail. I won’t blame T Mobile; I will blame myself for not using a backup device. In the 4 and a half years that I’ve been doing this, it has happened a total of two times. This was the third. Needless to say, the 12 minute convo I had with Austin and Michael of Myka, Relocate was impressionable to say the least. Read on, and find out how they can change YOUR life too.

We met in their trailer at the back of the Boardwalk in Orangevale California. Now I did my research, checked these guys out online, but I always get a sense of awkwardness at the very start. That awkwardness quickly dissipated as I found both of these young souls to be just as welcoming and friendly as they are on social media.

Myka, Relocate has been a band since 2007. Based out of the great state of Texas, these members have come a long way. Austin has been there from the very start of the band, which formed in Lafayette,Louisiana. The group later relocated to Houston in 2010, adding Michael to the lineup of talent. Since then, they have played South By So What 4 years in a row, recorded and released two full length albums and are winning hearts everywhere they go.  This year they attended South by South West, a festival in March located in Texas. Austin was impressed by Killswitch Engage, Michael was stoked to see Sacramento’s own Deftones. This year they will be going farther than ever to share their music, all the way to Japan to perform at Scream Out Fest. While they don’t have any specific plans, they do have an entire week to explore and are looking forward to the trip.

The lineup for this particular show had several Artery Recordings artists, who are based out of Sacramento and responsible for heavy hitters in the music industry and the owners of The Boardwalk. Myka, Relocate signed to Artery in 2013, a joint venture with Razor and Tie Records. The guys describe their relationship with both entities in a positive light. Slaves, also on Artery and headlining this tour, recently announced that they were calling it quits. There was no damper on the mood for the night’s energy, and you can see the bond between bands a mile away.

When we discussed their recent album, and the term young souls, I was impressed to learn that the meaning truly has universal and inspirational powers. Although both Austin and Michael are in their 20’s, they speak from a place of experience. Of understanding. Their music is uplifting and honest, at times belting out topics that aren’t always comfortable such as self-destruction, heartache, and trust. My understanding of their message is this: be good to one another and value yourself. Michael is fully aware of the comments about his choice to wear makeup. He also acknowledges that the positive immensely outweighs the negative. He is grateful for the fans that approach him to say that his actions have encouraged them to do the same.  Austin stated that when Michael made this choice, that it made total sense. When you do what feels right, it shows to the people around you who care. And these group of guys, care.

I asked Michael, what are some of the things he can’t or won’t compromise on and this question stumped him. He sees the world in a beautiful way, therefore chooses not to focus or give in to the negative. Really his only gripe is for people to be more open minded. He comes across to me as a person who rarely complains. He had been ill for the past few days, but you couldn’t tell and when it was time to perform, he gave 1000%. The entire band did. Watching them and listening to their songs, seeing the crowd sing back and the pit go crazy, I can’t help but feel like its bands like that will make the most impact. They aren’t here to be the biggest thing; they just want to be the best at what they do, and who they care. They closed their energetic set with their new single Nerves, which was a perfect ending.  Sacramento loves Myka, Relocate and we can’t wait to see what you do next. They are working on new music, but aren’t able to share anything just yet. So find them on social media at Facebook You can find their tour dates and purchase merch there…Amb Pirate

Entheos Vocalist Chaney Crabb Denied Entry Into Canada – Band To Play Canadian Shows Instrumental‏

cganey crabb
In support of their debut release The Infinite Nothing, ENTHEOS have been touring non-stop as they are currently out on the road with The Contortionist, Monuments and sleepmakeswaves.  The tour has been amazing so far, but unfortunately today there was a bit of a bump in the road…vocalist Chaney Crabb has been denied entry into Canada.  Therefore tonight’s show in Toronto and tomorrow’s show in Montreal, QC will be performed as instrumental sets.
Crabb is really bummed that she can’t get into America Junior, and had the following to say:
“Unfortunately, due to a DUI I received in 2008, I was denied entry to Canada at the Niagara Falls border early this morning. I have taken several steps to expunge this from my record but was unable to finish the process before we left for this tour. Because several people I know with greater charges have been allowed to apply for TRP at the border and crossed with a simple fee, I decided to take my chances and show up with my prepared paperwork, but was ultimately denied entry. I am deeply saddened and will continue to work to overcome my mistake. With that being said, go catch instrumentalENTHEOS sets tonight in Toronto and tomorrow in Montreal! I wish I could be there and will be seeing our Canadian friends sooner than later. Much love.”
