Palace of Alternative Rock II

Hello, hooray. It´s time for another visit in the alternative nation of music. Some say it´s the future of rock while others say blah blah blah. What do you say about these bands? Not so bad eh!
Get ready for a modern rock marathon.

Spiritual Plague is a symphonic-rock band from Vancouver, Washington (located just north of Portland OR). They like to blend a variety of styles such as classical, industrial, gothic, hard rock, acoustic, nu metal, djent, and even a hint of electronic to create a style of rock that just about anyone can enjoy.
Their new single Goodbye is now available on iTunes, stream it on Spotify.

Hidden History blends alt-metal guitar riffs with electronic and orchestral elements, energetic bass lines with powerful drum rhythms, and strong lead vocals to forge a dynamically unique sound. The band’s various influences include Muse, Red, Thrice, Chevelle, Linkin Park, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Saosin, and Incubus.
Listen to songs off their first album Mysterion at:

Highly anticipated, the release of FAR FROM GONE’s debut album has the country buzzing about the next big rock act rising out of the ashes of past projects. This year the changing of the seasons also beckons the beginning of something we were never supposed to be. We are indeed FAR FROM GONE and we may never be the same. Why would we ever want to be?
Check out the new single Say Goodbye from the self titled album out now. 

Phedora are an alternative rock band from Poland, their new album The House of Ink will be out in September. Get a first taste with the new single Paper streets right here.

Stunning song!

Canadian alternative rock band October Sky will release their new EP Rise on October 9, watch the lyric video of the first single The Moment here.

These young, energetic, Minneapolis-based rockers haven't slowed down since the release of their sophomore EP Disclosure in April 2014. Produced by Eric Labrosse of Cherry Pit Studios, Disclosure features five compelling, well-written songs that are not only radio-ready, but showcase all of their talents to the highest degree.
Watch the new video The Blame Game from City Of The Weak here.

Sunflower Dead is active rock with a combination of heavy riffs and infectious hooks that are both melodic and hard-hitting. Their anthems of chaos, disruption, life, beauty and rage, are both tragic and beautiful delivered with the passion that can only come from someone who has lived it.
Their new album It's Time To Get Weird, produced by Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Slipknot, Godsmack) and Mikey Doling (Gemini Syndrome) is a healthy dose of intense rock energy combined with honest and heart-felt lyrics that has been missing in rock radio for quiet some time. 
Their new single Dance with death is available now, check out the lyric video here. 

Hailing from the North East of England, Alt-rock/indie quintet, Native Braves formed in the summer of 2013. Since their formation they have been perfecting their distinctive dark and brooding style of alt-rock with their first release, ‘Blood Orange / Self Assemble’, demonstrating their unique sound with critical acclaim. Since this release in 2014 the band have cemented their growing reputation as one of the most exciting acts on the alt-rock scene with numerous appearances and live sessions on BBC introducing radio shows and a host of high profile bookings across the country including The Engine Shed, Lincolns largest music venue with Island records’ Prides, Corporation, Sheffield and a support slot with Frankie & The Heartstrings.
Their debut EP ‘Dissonance’ is the first offering from Lincolnshire ‘Post-indie’ quintet, Native Braves since their line-up changes at the start of 2015. 

Their new single Pilot Light is released on Sept 11.

Villainy are purveyors of some seriously good heavy rock. One of New Zealand's finest, most lauded and most rewarded bands are releasing their brand new single into Australia - a barrage of guitars and pounding beats entitle 'Syria', taken from the upcoming album Dead Sight (Sept 18)
Watch the bombastic film clip here.

Sydney's Red Gazelle are not at the bottom of the food chain. Hard-out rock dudes straight outta Sydney, they are bringing the first taste of their forthcoming EP to light. 
It's called 'Time Won't Heal' and it's doesn't go quietly. It's out September 18 

Christian rock band Kutless will release their new studio album Surrender in November.

Formed in 2009, out of the ashes of three “should’ve been huge” NY/NJ rock bands (Copperpot, 10 Heads High and Fly Me Courageous) spawned Reality Suite. Formed by three life long friends, Brian King (drums/synths,) Antonio Valenti (bass/synths,) and Joe Padula (guitars) – the concept was to musically satisfy themselves rather than be distracted by following current musical trends. With Venezuelan lead vocalist/actress, Miriam Pinedo, elements of rock, pop and dance were merged evolving in to an organic and unique sound. If Depeche Mode, Bon Jovi and The Killers had collaborated - you would have Reality Suite.
Stream their new album "Skinn" on Spotify here.

American alternative rock/metal band Get Scared will release their new album Demons on Oct 30.
Watch the official video of the first single Buried alive here.

The Swedish modern rock band Renegade Five has released a new single on iTunes and Spotify.

Does any story ever truly end? For the rock trio from Orlando, FL, a new chapter is just beginning.
A blend of modern rock born of the rich musical backgrounds of its members, Story's End employs intricate harmonies, deep grooves, and straight up rock and roll guitars to produce a sound unique to their own, yet comfortably familiar at the same time.
Their new EP Turning Point is available on Spotify, check out the awesome video Fading from their previous EP.
