York, UK-based post-punk band, Mary And The Ram (featuring The Parasitic Twins‘ Dom Smith on drums, and Kiran Tanna [The Trembling Hellish Infernal Nightmare Generator] on vocals and production, have announced a single version of ‘The Dream’, to be released on Friday, July 20 via the band’s Soundcloud.

The original track, which appeared a b-side to ‘The Cross’ single (NSFW video below), clocks in at seven minutes, with this new version running in at just over three, and is heavily influenced by the likes of Nine Inch Nails, and Nick Cave.

This version of ‘The Dream’ marks MATR’s last offering before heading into the studio at York St John University over the next few months to record a follow-up EP that will take the band away from its more post-punk and goth roots, and bring it into more alternative rock territory, with concentration on live instrumentation, alongside the signature brooding synth-heavy sound. Alongside Tanna’s production, the group will be working with Howie Weinberg, who is responsible for Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’, and Muse’s ‘Black Holes And Revelations’ among others).

Dom’s Parasitic Twins bandmate, Max Watt will also be joining the band in the studio to record guitars, and bolster the live line-up in 2019.

Check out the original version of ‘The Dream’, mixed by John Fryer (Depeche Mode, HIM) below, after the jump:

Following their recent exclusive on Pure Grain Audio, York-based hardcore punk four-piece, Seep Away, have their released new single ‘Matchstick Man’. The new single is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP, The Blackened Carnival Of Societal Ineptitude, due in the Autumn.

Taking influence from thrash legends Municipal Waste, alongside hardcore standouts Expire and Incendiary, the track is a vitriolic stab at those individuals we all know who drain the life out of those around them.

Vocalist Jay Sillence comments, “This song is quite personal to me – we all know that special type of asshole who sucks the life out of people with their actions – they just want to fight, and fucK, and they have nothing else in their life of any value, so they have to take from others. This song is a dedication to that special person in my life, and I hope other people can relate to the venom that I feel.”
