Finland death metal group Medeia have released a new video for their song "Franpire", that is off their latest EP Manning The Helm, which will be releasing sometime this summer.
Along with the video, the band had a brief message about the history of recording the song: "This track was (for some reason) so challenging to compose we almost threw it out. Something in it kept us coming back to the drawing board time and time again to figure it out ... Roughly six months ago we had to carry our equipment out of a burning building. The central unit containing Franpire along with several other audio projects was the first item to be carried out on a rainy Tuesday morning."

Bassist Dave Beste had this to say regarding the new video: "We were recently asked to be an experiment in a laboratory study. The people behind the study evidently wanted to measure our rock-n-roll power, and so we played "Electric Man" and in the process we broke all their equipment. Somebody taped it and we made a special video out of it. So watch it, and enjoy it. We love science."

Anti Flag are streaming a second track Off of their upcoming album American Spring titled “Sky Is Falling”. Anti flag released a statement on the new track:
"We released this song and video days after President Obama apologized for a drone strike that inadvertently killed an American and an Italian being held captive by al Qaeda in Pakistan.
