1. Inklings release new music video

Kier Kemp’s post-Fearless Vampire Killers solo venture Inklings released a new music video for “Ambush.” “‘Ambush’ is about someone close to me that was in an abusive relationship,” Kemp says. “This someone happened to be a man, and it was heartbreaking to see the effect it had on his self-esteem. Men are ‘supposed’ to be strong. The song is from his perspective, the confusion he felt and the need to always blame himself.”

5. I The Mighty release new single, music video

I The Mighty released a new single, “Cave In,” along with an accompanying music video. “‘Cave In’ is a song that people close to me have been pushing me to write for the better portion of my career. I think I’ve put it off because it can be easier to bury things than to face them, but I know that the song’s content is something that a vast amount of people can relate to,” lead vocalist Brent Walsh says. “Experiencing substance abuse among close family, especially as a child, is something that I and many others will carry with them for life. My hope is that ‘Cave In’ can be as cathartic for people to listen to and sing along to, as it was for me to write.” The band embark on tour with Polyphia, and tickets are available here.

7. Thousand Thoughts drop new music video

Thousand Thoughts released a new music video for “Ignite” from their debut self-titled EP, which is also out today. “I’m really proud of the Thousand Thoughts EP, as all four songs are different to each other in sound yet keep within the same theme of mental health,” vocalist/guitarist Ethan Smith says. “I love the dichotomy of depth from different interpretations of our songs; alongside the simplicity in lyrics and melody. They explain different fights you have, but also contain the empathy from understanding. Each song is honest and will take you on a journey.” The album is available to stream on Spotify. They have several performance dates lined up in the coming months, and you can purchase tickets here. Check out where they’re headed below.

9. Loyal Panic share new music video

Loyal Panic released a new single, “Hero,” with an accompanying music video. “The hero refers to the role models that I looked up to growing up,” vocalist Roni Weinstock says. “Learning from them, but also being envious of them for what they have. Then dealing with the heartbreak when they ended up committing suicide and realizing they’re just as fragile as I was. The track’s about saying goodbye to those heroes and learning how to appreciate and rely on yourself more and more.”
