“Sometimes you decide it’s a good idea to wake up at 4am on a Sunday to shoot a one shot music video with a friend in a gold skeleton mask and a few dancers you found on craigslist the night before with some cheap confetti cannons and smoke bombs on a quiet industrial street that also happens to host a swap meet on Sundays. Pair that with figuring out how to do hand drawn animations over every frame of the video you have yourself a well planned, thought out budget friendly music video.” – Tyler Demorest / New Language

About the band:
New Language has made quite the name for themselves since launching in 2016. Their powerful sound has been described as ‘high-octane rock’ meets ‘post-hardcore fury’; which is exactly what catapulted them to become supporting acts such as The Used and Gone Is Gone (featuring members of Queens of the Stone Age, Mastodon, At The Drive In).
Based in Los Angeles, co-founders Tyler Demorest (vocals/guitar) and Matt Cohen (bass/backing vocals) have been writing and playing in bands together for nearly a decade, but in 2015 the two teamed up with songwriter/producer Tony Hajjar (At The Drive In / Sparta) and New Language was born.
In Spring of 2016, their track “Wake Up” debuted on Australia’s acclaimed TripleJ radio. New Language made their debut performance to a sold-out Los Angeles crowd while supporting Gone is Gone. This was immediately followed with 26 dates as direct support for The Used on their ‘In Love & Death / Self Titled’ Anniversary Tour, which sold upwards of 40K tickets and provided incredible exposure for a first supporting tour.
Alternative Press featured New Language in their December 2016 Bands You Ought To Know section by saying, “Lead vocalist Tyler Demorest brings it way loud, reminiscent of early Thrice, while the weight of the bass and drums in the score shoots a nod to Queens of the Stone Age.”
2017 saw the debut of two New Language releases. First was the Come Alive LP (produced by Tony Hajjar), which included the track “Frantic Believer” that was featured on SiriusXM’s Octane, Las Vegas’ X107.5, and also received a coveted spot on Spotify’s ‘New Noise’ Playlist. The release was accompanied with a 7 city run of headlining west coast dates.
Following the announcement of a September residency at LA venue, The Satellite, New Language released the Everybody Screams EP (produced by Alex Newport; Bloc Party, At The Drive In, Mars Volta, City and Colour). The title track, “Everybody Screams” premiered exclusively on Loudwire and received notable airplay on LA’s 95.5 KLOS, when live on-air during their acclaimed ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’ segment it was said “This is the first band, at least in the last year… this is THE best band on Should I Stay or Should I Go.” The track also saw airplay on LA’s 88.5 KCSN during their Buzz Bands segment.
Most recently, New Language teamed up with KROQ to play their weekly Locals Only residency at Lucky Strike Hollywood. The band has also just completed a full length music video for their track “Show Me” which is set to be released in February of 2018. Currently the band has 2 new tracks to be released as singles in the Spring, with a full EP in June.
