It’s New Music Friday – and this week’s a big one!

Bowling For Soup have a hilarious video for new song ‘Alexa Bliss’, there’s killer new albums from both Sepultura and Loathe, and PUP release a DIY fan recorded video. Thank the Devil it’s Friday, eh?!

bowling for soup hang with Alexa Bliss

Bowling For Soup‘s new song is dedicated to none other than WWE star and all-round badass, Alexa Bliss. The wrestler also features in the hilarious video, we hear BFS are one of her favourite bands and she also sports a KISS vest in the video. Maybe we should all be a bit more like Alexa Bliss? Don’t miss a cameo from Alexa’s pet pig Larry-Steve at the end.

Spot yourself in the new Pup Video

During their two performances at London’s Electric Ballroom last year, PUP handed out cheap handheld cameras to fans in the audience and allowed them to record whatever they wanted. They then edited the footage into a music video for their new single, ‘Morbid Stuff’, the title track from their third album. The result is raw punk awesomeness.
