5. Every Time I Die have shared a teaser for something new coming 4/28!
Over the past week, Every Time I Die have been posting images and clips across their social media pages, and now they've been compiled into a cryptic teaser.
Watch the video below, as the footage features clips and images of some random areas and settings which could be from their home town of Buffalo, NY.
We think it might be a new video, but your guess is as good as ours. The official product will make its premier on Friday at NPR music, as noted at the end of the clip.

6. Slaughter To Prevail unveiled a new video for “Chronic Slaughter.”
From their upcoming debut record Misery Sermon, Slaughter To Prevail have released a punishing new video for their song “Chronic Slaughter.”
The video couples live footage with an edgy live playthrough in a haunting room, making for a distressing experience—likely to the group's desire.
Watch the new video for their single below. Misery Sermon will be out on May 5 through Sumerian Records.
7. Composer/DJ/Producer Varien releases new song, “Mutiny!”
Varien (aka Nick Kaelar), one of AP's Top 100 Artists to Watch, has put out a new single titled “Mutiny.”
The track premiered today via Outerloop Records, and features a refreshing blend of electornic styles, including modern EDM as well as classic house and synth elements.
On the new tune, Varien had this to say: “I wanted to have the colour and feeling you would get from a great synthwave/outrun type track, but something that was dancefloor and DJ-ready. I definitely feel I accomplished this and am absolutely excited to share it with the world. This is one of my first experiments with combining new and exciting ideas like synthwave, vaporwave, witch house, etc. into an understandable format—and I hope to please both the underground that gave birth to these incredible genres and the more casual listeners who love a fresh style.”
Check out the new track below, and let us know what you think of it in the comment section!
8. And finally today, Spite have premiered a video for their new track, “Despise.”
Spite are set to release a new album later this year, but in the meantime they've graced us with a brand new single and video.
“Despise” is the piercing final product, and it sure is a beatdown.
Spite's new record is expected out on Stay Sick Records in the coming months, but for now, enjoy their newest single!
