Music Video: Red Tape Parade releases video “Leap Year of Faith” for 7″ + DVD for Wauz Kenobi tribute

Today marks the birthday of the late Red Tape Parade singer Wauz Kenobi. Kenobi succumbed to his battle with cancer last April, while working on the band’s newest material (which was to be part of their third full-length album).

The band has stated that “Leap Year of Faith” was one of the few demo songs that was completed with Wauz before he passed away. It has become somewhat of a dedication/memorial song, and the members have joined with other fellow musicians to create this music video for the track.

Check it out below.

The song (with B-side of “Song 21”) and video appear on a “tribute bundle” that is being released today through End Hits Records, and is said to be the last new work we shall see from Red Tape Parade.

The bundle includes 7″ and DVD, which features full live Red Tape Parade show, as well as a ton of bonus content ranging from interviews to music videos to Joey Cape and Brian Wahlstrom’s acoustic tribute to Kenobi.

Album Review: The Haverbrook Disaster – “Weather The World”

On the one hand, I love The Haverbrook Disaster. They play hardcore with a twist of melody that never changes hands into the realm of melodic hardcore, with songs both energetic and loud.

On the other hand, The Haverbrook Disaster and their sophomore album Weather The World is a little too indicative of everything I hate about modern hardcore. Yes, it’s more of the same flat-brim hat wearing, drop tuned guitar chugging hardcore that punctuates the average meathead’s trip to the gym. But, if you’re okay with that, and can get over its own triteness, you’ll find that the music on Weather The World is pretty good, albeit not different or new.

What impressed me the most about The Haverbrook Disaster was the revelation that they were in fact a German band. All of their lyrics are sung (bro-shouted?) in English, and I never once caught wind of an accent. I usually won’t listen to a band if they aren’t native English speakers, not out of xenophobia, but because I’m a slave to the written word. I love lyrics, and it’s a simple fact that a lot of non-native English singing bands have awkwardly written, and often times laughable lyrics. The Haverbrook Disaster have none of these problems, delivering every word as if they use it everyday.

The sound on Weather The World typifies much of today’s hardcore, which somehow has become its own distinct scene from punk. But, it’s not bad. Personally, I lament the drop-D chugging as their fall back riff, populating literally every song on the record, but even as I pick it apart, I know that it works despite itself. At the end of the day, it sounds like a heavier, almost plodding, Comeback Kid record, but in a totally good way.

The melodies on Weather The World never dominate or diminish The Haverbrook Disaster’s hardcore style, on “The Chosen Few” it’s melodic chorus doesn’t feel like a departure so much as a natural extension of their sound by keeping the more obvious melodies in the background as ‘woah’s’ and the actual chorus as a gang vocaled sing-a-long. Even a curmudgeon like me has to admit that the melody they inject into their music pushes them above many of their contemporaries. Ending track “Know the Ropes” manages to break it’s hardcore cadence for a line or two of melodic inflection every now and then. And while that may not sound like much, the result is an astoundingly more interesting sound.

The Haverbrook Disaster might not be your style. Hell, I’m not even sure I’d call them my style. But, songs about never giving up and being true to yourself have never sounded so good. Weather The World may not be high art, but it’s a lot of fun.

3.5/5 Stars
