With the never ending catalogue of streaming services throwing more music at you than your brain can process, it’s becoming increasingly more and more difficult to find those magical tracks that give you goosebumps and make you want to bang your head.

3TEETH, who are less than a week away from the release of their Century Media debut, METAWAR, cover Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks,” highlighting the song’s commentary on school shootings in blistering new video.

“Industrial bands have a long history of subverting popular culture songs. From songs like Revolting Cocks’ version ‘Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?’ or Laibach’s ‘Sympathy for the Devil,” says 3TEETH front man Alexis Mincolla.

Eva Bartok - Chess Club

Not for the faint hearted, Eva Bartok IS real life, real issues; the songs tackle subjects like feeling trapped in ourselves and within relationships, living with the enemy, settling for normal life and not taking risks, and the dark side fallout of politics.

This isn't about "making it" in a cynical age of worldwide vanity... this is about doing something of worth and not giving up on it.

F.K.Ü. - 1981

"The essence of what we wanted to mediate on our latest album, 1981, all summed up in one track, the aptly named title track 1981. With lyrical content like ”Body count classics in an endless row” and ”We need reel violence to spice up the show” it’s the perfect introduction to the rest of the album. Let’s party like it’s 1981!" - F.K.Ü.

Dinosaur Pile-Up - Back Foot

The return of Dinosaur Pile-Up has been met by an ecstatic reaction from both fans and media alike.

The songs also featured on the playlists of both Radio X and Kerrang Radio.
