They made enough of an impact to have their second funded by their fans so they really must have felt the pressure when constructing it. We are therefore delighted to report that this Indian-British combo have knocked it out of the park.

The Safety Fire have been super busy within a year’s time! Releasing Mouth of Swords late last year to critical acclaim, being on Eggheads, touring with Between the Buried and Me, touring again with Protest the Hero, producing a music video for “Glass Crush,” and then replacing The Faceless on Protest the Hero’s upcoming European tour, the UK locals even found time to rework one of the more laid-back tracks from their latest album.

In light of recent events (like losing two essential band members), it seems The Faceless have decided to drop off of the their upcoming European tour with Protest the Hero and The Contortionist. While we’re still hearing nothing but crickets from the band’s Facebook page, Protest dropped an official statement Friday confirming what many fans feared was inevitable following the departure of both Alex Rüdinger (drums) and Evan Brewer (bass) near the end of October.

If you just happened to not check out Mouth Of Swords last year then that’s fine. I mean, if you want to miss out on one of the best new bands around, making some of the best music of their career, then that’s OK – I won’t stop you. But if you genuinely missed it, then there’s still time for redemption as the band have unveiled a new video for ‘Glass Crush‘, which was easily my personal favourite. Check it:

Protest the Hero North American Tour spring 2014

With the addition of Mike Semesky on vocals and a super strong album release to show, Intervals have hit the road with several other fantastic artists including country-mates Protest the Hero, who released the critically acclaimed Volition last year, UK’s The Safety Fire (who also shredded into our 2013 favorites), you-could-easily-mistake-them-for-modern-vikings Battlecross, and post-rock excellence Night Verses.

With such an insane tour at hand, it only seemed polite to offer you photos of their performances. Please enjoy these shots from March 8th, 2014 at Mojoe’s of Joliet in Illinois.

Please to be enjoying the new video for the second track from A Voice Within, ‘Moment Marauder.’

NAYON

Due to work circumstances, I haven’t really been able to write a lot for HBIH in the second half of the year, but music is what kept me going through the long, tiring days at work the entire year. Without further ado, I present you the 15 albums, 3 EPs and 1 video that really became a part of my daily routine and made my life much more colorful. I really enjoyed listening to these over and over and I feel like they’ve become a part of me. That’s what matters with music, right? Also, I put a link/embed to listen to my favorite track from each album, so you can enjoy them like I did!

Without further ado, bring on my arbitrarily ordered list of enjoyable albums from this year that you should take seriously!
