If you’re a fan of Hawthorne Heights, I’ll bet you’ll meander on over to check out frontman JT Woodruff’s latest solo release, Field Medicine.

Oklahoma natives and southern-infused hard rockers Anti-Mortem have released an exclusive acoustic performance video for the song "Hate Automatic." The song comes off the band's upcoming debut album, New Southern. Formed in 2008 and raised on southern rock and heavy metal, the combined average age of this Oklahoma quintet is just 21-years-old. The band dole out bottom-heavy and groove-laden anthems with every track and infuse a modern sense of melody that is the signature trademark of all the metal greats they've learned from.
