This month, Better Noise Music is celebrating Rocktober with new high-energy material and hit catalog releases, compiling the extensive list of iconic songs into new playlists across digital platforms. Rock lovers all over the world take the month of October as a 31-day opportunity to listen to rock music. Honour legends and discover new bands in this month-long celebration of rock this year with Better Noise’s new and catalog compilation releases available for streaming, download, and purchase across platforms.
Campaign festivities started early with the recent releases of Five Finger Death Punch’s AfterLife, The HU’s Rumble of Thunder, Classless Act’s Welcome To The Show, and Eva Under Fire’s Love, Drugs & Misery. Labelmates NOTHING MORE, Fire From The Gods and Bad Wolves will be joining them, as their new highly-anticipated bodies of work are expected to release this month.
NOTHING MORE’S SPIRITS kicks off the roster of new releases, dropping October 14. The band has released “TURN IT UP LIKE (STAND IN THE FIRE),” “TIRED OF WINNING,” “SPIRITS,” and “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE MEANS,” piquing the attention of Billboard, BraveWords, and Loudwire, the latter of which described “TIRED OF WINNING” as pulsing and anthemic. The track has also landed in the Top 5 at Active Rock Radio. Along with this new album, the band created a SPIRITS Test, a interactive 25-question meta-personality test that incorporates data sourced from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, astrology, and more. Tune into the band’s social media platforms for an announcement of a special livestream where fans can get an exclusive early-listen to the album.
Forming part of the live synthesizer band, S U R V I V E, Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (The Hole In The Fence, Spheres, Valley Of The Boom, Butterfly) won an Emmy for their work on Netflix’s Stranger Things series and are now lending their talents to The Retaliators Original Motion Picture Score, available for streaming October 21. “The Retaliators Theme Song (21 Bullets)” features Mötley Crüe, Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop, From Ashes To New’s Matt Brandyberry, and Ice Nine Kill’s Spencer Charnas. According to Heavy Consequence, the song, “charts new territory for Mötley Crüe, falling into the alternative metal style with soaring melodies and a driving mid-tempo. The aforementioned vocalists all chip in at various points, and the arrangement of their individual parts is arguably the most impressive facet of the track.”
Having just released “Thousand Lifetimes,” Fire From The God’s new album Soul Revolution will hit stores at the end of the month, October 28. Making headlines in BraveWords and Loudwire with their new music, Loudwire’s Rabab Al-Sharif recently wrote, “Fire From The Gods have captured that feeling of drowning in unease on their latest track, “SOS,” which is a blend of soaring, anthemic rock and rap with a little reggae flavour.”
Classless Act’s Welcome To The Show was met with critical acclaim, with Metal Talk writing, “The whole album crackles with electricity, the energy of singalong All That We Are and a rambunctious Made In Hell not so much nicely knocking on doors but kicking them down with size eleven boots.” Following up their debut album release this summer, Classless Act is releasing their acoustic EP, Welcome To The Acoustic Show.
Bad Wolves stormed the scene with Dear Monsters last year and are returning this month with the deluxe version of the album. Billboard shared, “[DEAR MONSTERS is] arguably Bad Wolves’ most diverse and far-reaching album to date. It’s filled with hard-rocking crunch (‘Lifeline,’ ‘On the Case,’ ‘House of Cards’”) and rich melodicism (‘Wildfire,’ album closer ‘In the Middle’), while the intricate dynamic shifts of ‘Comatose’ and ‘Sacred Kiss’ offer aural amusement park rides for listeners.”
