SAYWECANFLY JOINS VANS WARPED TOUR FOR SECOND YEAR

Image: Say We Can Fly, Mazur PR, Warped Tour, Michael MazurTORONTO - SayWeCanFly is honored to once again be invited to take part in this summer's Vans Warped Tour.

This year, singer/songwriter Braden Barrie is moving up from the Acoustic Basement Tent to the Full Sail University Stage. "Last summer felt like a huge camping trip," he said. "I'll definitely miss the intimacy of that cozy orange canopy, but I can't wait to walk up there and be able to see everything that's going on. I'll be hangin' at my merch table every day at some point, and of course playing my heart out for anyone who wants to listen."

The Vans Warped Tour is the perfect setting for Barrie, who built SayWeCanFly through personal connections with fans, via social media and in-person.

"Vans Warped Tour is its own world," said Barrie. "It's an environment completely unique to itself. I'm really stoked to feel that air again. It's an amazing chance to push yourself, observe, and tell your stories to thousands of people. I honestly see it as a challenge. It's not just about playing music, it's about personally connecting and hanging out with as many kids as possible."

SayWeCanFly self-released the full-length, Between The Roses, last year, which soon caught the attention of Epitaph Records. Following last year's Vans Warped Tour, Epitaph snatched up the young musician and release the Darling EP.

SAYWECANFLY DEBUTS NEW VIDEO FOR 'WHEN I COME HOME'

Mazur PR, Say We Can Fly, Michael MazurTORONTO - SayWeCanFly will debut a brand new video for "When I Come Home" from the Darling EP, available on Epitaph Records, this Wednesday, June 15.

The concept for the clip came to singer/songwriter Braden Barrie while in the midst of a 10-hour drive between tour stops. "It was a beautiful moonlit night in Arizona," he said. "My phone was dead, so all I could do was stare out the window and think. That's when the universe gave me the idea for this music video."

SayWeCanFly, Video, Mazur PR, Michael MazurThe video was filmed by Reel Tang Films, marking their sixth video collaboration, and edited by Barrie in a coffee-fueled overnight editing session. "I love editing my own videos," said Barrie. "I feel like it's the best way for me to convey my point. I'm really proud of this one."

"When I Come Home" is an uplifting, hopeful track, with a video that stands in sharp contrast. Driving in his car all alone on deserted roads, Barrie sings those positive words while he wrestles with the shadows lurking deep within his soul.

"I've always felt that contrast tells my stories in the most powerful way," said Barrie. "I wanted to dive a little deeper into the darkness within. The skeleton character I play in this video is the continuation of the character in my previous video for 'Driftwood Heart.' He has transcended the pain and become part of it. He accepts it. Just like we all have to at some point."

MORTIIS AND DIRECTOR REINERT KIIL CONVERGE ON FIRST INSTALLMENT OF SORDID SHORT FILM TRILOGY

OSLO, Norway - Vardøger, the first of three short films by noted Norwegian shock filmmaker Reinert Kiil and set to Mortiis' "Geisteskrank," will officially see release today, debuting on Decibel magazine's website at 11 a.m. EDT.

Kiil's mind-blowing visuals accompany Mortiis' track, recorded during the same sessions that yielded Mortiis' latest work, The Great Deceiver.

"The video unpleasantness continues," said Mortiis, who has already unveiled three graphically-intense videos from

The Great Deceiver. "A while back Norwegian horror director Reinert Kiil started his short film trilogy based on his own ugly descent into depravity and violence. Never ones to turn our backs to a good cause, we leaped at the opportunity to provide the soundtrack to what is essentially a good old bashing.

Vardøger is the first part. I've seen the next one, and it just keeps getting worse."

Kiil began toying around with filmmaking as an adolescent. The director has now gained notoriety as Norway's only Grindhouse filmmaker. Kiil's work with Mortiis is his first musical collaboration. Both parties were intrigued by the idea of delving into the other's artform, but both were waiting to find that kindred soul to capture a shared essence. Mortiis and Kiil found that in each other.

"The music is sonically fused with a glimpse of his soul - or crazed mind or whatever it might be - and it is complete, a sordid success," Mortiis said. "The result is sleazy, strange, disturbing, and extremely violent."

BELTFED WEAPON'S FRANK HETZEL ENDORSED BY D'HAITRE CUSTOM GUITARS

Image: Beltfed Weapon, Mazur PR, Michael MazurSEATTLE - When it came time for guitarist Frank Hetzel to beginning writing and recording the second album from his band Beltfed Weapon, there was no question the D'haitre would be his guitar of choice.

Founded in 1990 by Andy Beech, the Washington-based company produces high-quality, custom guitars.

"What I love most about my D'haitre guitars is how they feel," Hetzel said. "The neck and the fret board feel like butter and the tone that comes from them is like heaven. Andy uses top-grade wood and everything is done by hand. There is nothing that can't be built for any style of player."

As an admirer and player of D'haitre since long before he received an official endorsement, Hetzel was excited to welcome the luthier into the fold of Beltfed Weapon for the band's latest release, Raining Plague, after years of inviting Beech to perform solos on his songs.

"I've known Frank since the mid-'90s," Beech said "My band was playing and he approached me after the show and asked me if I'd give him lessons. We did just that, and became friends. He also became one of my best customers. I think he owns 11 D'haitres!"

For Hetzel's latest D'haitre, he chose an ebony fretboard and aluminum inlays with mahogany. "The look and feel of these guitars is amazing," he said. "D'haitre guitars are without a doubt the true custom choice. Once you play one, you will be sold."
