1. Bleachers have a new video out that was directed by Lena Dunham!
With the new Bleachers album Gone Now just a month away, Jack Antonoff enlisted his lover and Girls creator Lena Dunham to direct his project's latest video.
“Don't Take The Money” is already a vibrant tune which also features Lorde, and the video sticks to the script.
Watch Antonoff's character go through a wild wedding experience in the latest Bleachers video! Gone Now is out on RCA June 2.
2. Bullet For My Valentine announce Live From Brixton: Chapter Two.
Fresh off of a year and a half of extensive touring, Welsh group Bullet For My Valentine is releasing their two-night performances from the O2 Academy Brixton in multiple formats.
The two live performances will be available on CD, vinyl, and DVD/Blu-ray, with night two featuring the band's first album The Poison performed in full.
Preorders are available here, as Live From Brixton: Chapter Two will be made available on July 28.
“Live From Brixton: Chapter Two marks the end of a massive 18 month global touring cycle, so to mark the success of Venom and to celebrate our debut album The Poison, we thought we’d capture both nights so that everyone could be a part of it,” frontman Matt Tuck commented.
Check out the footage of “Her Voice Resides” below!
3. Fozzy have premiered a new music video for “Judas.”
The latest theme from WWE's NXT Takeover: Chicago, “Judas” by Fozzy has also seen its official video debut.
Lead singer and pro wrestler Chris Jericho, who holds the U.S. WWE title belt, had this to say regarding the production:
“For such a dark and sexy song like ‘Judas‘, we wanted a dark and sexy video to match…and we got that and more! In one take we filmed a unique, visually stunning masterpiece that combines an incredible song, psycho clowns, hot chicks, a man on fire and a great rock n roll band, all in one tasty video morsel. What more could you want…a giant rabbit holding balloons? Oh yeah, we’ve got that too!”
Fozzy is currently on tour with Kyng and Sons Of Texas.

8. And finally today, Least Of These have debuted another single from their upcoming EP.
Having just premiered the title track off of their new EP Wolves here on our site, Least Of These are now releasing their second single.
“Overcast” is the name of the latest tune, and it reflects how the band took a good hard look at their “brand” in between releases.
“This time around more has changed (member changes, different writing process, etc) than ever before between records,” says frontman Jonny Gore. “So when the duration between the release of Mere Image and the beginning of the recording process for Wolves ended up being a lot longer than we had anticipated, we used the extra time between records to figure out how to incorporate all the change into our music/lyrics and how that would change the ‘branding’ for the band.”
Wolves will be out May 19.
