    It's Friday, Friday, got to get your fresh metal fix on Friday.  That's right Maniacs it is finally Friday which means it is time to kick off the weekend with some Friday Fire

    With so many new metal releases dropping every week, it can be hard to know what to listen to, so we've taken it upon ourselves to do the heavy lifting, sorting the 'hell yeah' from the 'hell meh' you don't have to.  So without fear or favour, here is our Friday Fire: Five New Tracks We're Feeling This Friday.

    Steve Aoki & Taking Back Sunday - Just Us Two 
    This wildly imaginative change of pace from dance music heavyweight Steve Aoki sees him collab with MySpace era alt-rockers Taking Back Sunday. Definitely a departure from Aoki's usual electronic flavours, his essence and influence can still be heard with the textural synthesizers and anthemic swirling of sounds that float around the powerful pop-rock that Taking Back Sunday delivers on this song. 

    Steve Aoki shares

    “I met up with Taking Back Sunday in Charlotte, North Carolina and we recorded the song live in a physical recording studio, honing in on the group’s powerful instrumentation. I come from a punk background and it’s always so good to work with artists that share the same passion for live music. This record encapsulates both of our roots while maintaining the Aoki elements that bound the track together.”

    Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday says

     “Getting a call asking if we wanted to write with Steve Aoki was very surreal. Steve comes from a very similar background as we do, house shows, DIY labels, the whole thing. We were listening back to different ideas he had, and one guitar part in particular caught our drummer Mark’s ear. We approached it in the same way we do our own songs, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Turns out our worlds aren’t as far apart as people might think.”
