Alt-rock psych mavericks Turbowolf have released their new single "Cheap Magic," the latest track to be taken from their upcoming album, The Free Life, out March 9 on So Recordings.

Frontman Chris Georgiadis says,"Our latest song release from our new album The Free Life springs out of the hat in the form of 'Cheap Magic.' A song conjured up specially for our times; whether they be good, bad or most likely, entirely made up. Plus as a bonus, we're incredibly happy to have our friend Sebastien Grainger from Death From Above do some singing on it too. You're welcome."

"Cheap Magic" opens with an unrelenting guitar riff, drenched in near speaker-breaking levels of distortion, propelling the track into stratospheric aural majesty amid reverb-laden vocal whispers. It then explodes into its blistering verse and anthemic chorus, with vocoder saturated lyrics casting the spell of "Cheap Magic" over the track.

Indiana metalcore band GLASS HANDS has released the Official Music Video for their single "Waiting Room." Filmed, directed, and edited by Brian “Bone” Thorburn at Threshold Studios in Indianapolis, based on concepts from Glass Hands and Brian “Bone” Thorburn, "Waiting Room" is the debut single off of Glass Hand's upcoming EP.

“Waiting Room is a song about watching yourself become a negative, apathetic person without the strength to do anything about it; feeling like you’re just waiting around until the end. Like anyone, each of us in the band have had our own internal battles, and we think that the feeling of numbness in depression is something a lot of people can relate to, and that’s what we wanted to do with this song. We wanted to relate.” - Glass Hands
