New Zealands Maori Metal Sensation ALIEN WEAPONRY release a strictly limited 7 Inch Vinyl, including the two brand new songs “Ahi Kā” And “Blinded”. The three teenagers are celebrated worldwide as one of the hottest newcomer metal bands. After releasing the debut album in 2018, ALIEN WEAPONRY toured Europe, North America, Australia and their home country of New Zealand extensively. They played the biggest festivals around the world and supported the legendary Ministry in the Us. In 2019 they’ll go one step further by playing headline tours in the US and Europe and supporting Slayer on their last show in Germany ever.
ALIEN WEAPONRY on the two new songs:
Ahi Ka
“In 1952, in preparation for a Royal visit by Her Majesty the Queen, the Auckland City Council, in a misguided attempt to beautify the city, evicted the local Ngāti Whātua people from their village at Ōkahu Bay and burned it to the ground.”

Blinded
“Relationships are difficult to understand at the best of times but when you are 16 and on tour all over the world these things are bound to get confusing and hard to reconcile. Blinded is about a very personal trip down this rabbit hole”
"We have had a very busy touring schedule ever since the release of Tū and we are stoked we managed to record two new tracks in the short break we had back home in New Zealand. We can’t wait to play the new songs live!“


The new 7 Inch is the first new material since the debut album and is strictly limited to 400 pieces.
Pre-Order Ahi Kā/Blinded NOW!
About "Ahi Ka":
"Ahi Kā was inspired by the Auckland city council's decision to burn down what was considered to be the unsightly indigenous Maori village of Okahu Bay in advance of Queen Elizabeth II's 1953 visit," ALIEN WEAPONRY'S singer-guitarist Lewis de Jong says of the track. Which, like many of the band's songs, is sung in New Zealand's indigenous language of Te Reo Māori. "The eviction sparked a 40-year battle for the native Ngati Whatua to reclaim their land, including protests and battles with the police. Amid worldwide criticism, a small portion of the original land was ultimately returned with an apology and some compensation."

About ALIEN WEAPONRY:
ALIEN WEAPONRY was formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis (vocals & guitar) and Henry de Jong (drums), who were 8 and 10 years old at the time. The two would later move to the small town of Waipu in 2012, and went on to meet Ethan Trembath (bass) there in 2013. The de Jong brothers came up with the name ALIEN WEAPONRY after watching the film District 9.

Both Lewis and Henry are of Ngati Pikiāo and Ngati Raukawa (Māori tribal) descent, and began their schooling at a kura kaupapa Māori (full immersion Māori language school) where singing waiata (songs) and performing haka were a daily routine. Also ingrained in their early education were stories of New Zealand history told to them by their father, who would also introduce them to the music of Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Anthrax, Ministry, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many others.

Fans and music critics alike have applauded the band's approach to unifying Te Reo Māori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal sensibilities; ultimately creating a sound that is driven by emotionally and politically charged conflict while boasting youthful, warrior-like resilience.

Alien Weaponry have also been nominated for "Best International Breakthrough Band" at the 2019 Heavy Music Awards (UK). The event takes place on August 22nd at the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London. Fan voting is now open at https://vote.heavymusicawards.com/  until June 27th.

Pre-Order The Space Between The Shadows HERE!
TODAY – Grammy winner, Creed frontman, & platinum-certified solo artist, SCOTT STAPP has posted a lyric video for “Name” on his social platforms to highlight a song that pledges to break the cycle of abuse. The track will appear on STAPP´S first album in six years, The Space Between The Shadows, and it is a chill-inducing promise to protect his children from what he endured in his own youth. STAPP has performed the song live for select fans during radio visits and each performance has been met with pin-drop silence and standing ovations for lyrics like:

“I am a son without a father. He gave his name and walked away.
I am a man, now a father. And I swear my son will never know that pain.
I was a child, I was abandoned. Too young to fight to have a say.
Oh God what seemed so heavy handed. Made me the man I am today.
It’s so hard to forgive. Even harder to forget.”

“Name” also gives the album its title, as Stapp vows to make his hard-learned lessons count:

“I will...I will... be the space between the shadows.
I will...I will... be the light inside the sorrow.”

ABOUT: SCOTT STAPP is a Grammy winning songwriter, frontman for Creed (over 50 million albums sold worldwide), and solo artist who released the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013) which included his first solo Billboard #1, “Slow Suicide.” His first album in six years, THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SHADOWS, will be released July 19, 20109 and is powered by Stapp’s introspective lyrics and the pitch-perfect delivery that has consistently brought anthems of gratitude and optimism to music’s darker side.

With a new outlook – five years sober and counting – STAPP´S upcoming album documents a five-year journey to find meaning and redemption in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light. His evolution, both personally and professionally, reflects a sense of purpose in sharing the silver lining of his survival.

He is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression and he “pays it forward” through his With Arms Wide Open Foundation, which helps military vets and their families with drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded SCOTT with the Florida Service Award. In 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.
