Providence, RI. quintet KINGSMEN have unleashed their latest single and music video for ‘Bitter Half’ via Sharptone Records. Speaking on today’s release, the band shares:

“There’s always a good guy and bad guy.  Every story has one. Every person has an inner voice speaking on behalf of each side. Every idea you create involves them. More often than not, the bad guy in our minds seems like a big scary monster. They’re intimidating. They can be enticing. They can make things seem too easy. They can cheat you out of a great opportunity by offering the coward’s way out. They can make you feel weak. ‘Bitter Half’ is about knowing you’ve been taken advantage of by that ‘devil on your shoulder’. Its about standing up and saying enough is enough. It’s time to move on. It’s time to become better. It’s time to say “f*ck you” to your bitter half.’’

Prior to today’s drop, Kingsmen have previously released the music video for ‘Trial By Fire’, the band’s first new, original release since their 2020 debut album, ‘Revenge. Forgiveness. Recovery‘.

Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, is thrilled to release the new trailer for the Shudder Original Gloriousahead of the film’s debut on the platform on Thursday 18 August. The latest feature film from celebrated director, podcaster, and academic Rebekah McKendry (All The Creatures Were Stirring, co-writer of the upcoming Bring It On: Cheer or Die) film comes to Shudder hot off of its widely-praised world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival.

Glorious follows as, spiraling out after a bad breakup, Wes (Ryan Kwanten) ends up at a remote rest stop miles away from civilization. His situation worsens after he finds himself locked inside the bathroom with a mysterious figure (J.K. Simmons) speaking to him from an adjacent stall. As Wes tries to escape, he finds himself an unwilling player in a situation bigger and more terrible than he could possibly imagine…

With the majority of the film taking place in a rest stop bathroom, Glorious is an intimate indie horror full of twists and unimaginable turns that boasts one of the most jaw-dropping roles of Simmons’ career. Psychedelic, comedic, overwhelmingly messy, and surprisingly emotionally, Glorious has all the makings of a future cult hit.

Glorious speaks to my adoration of Lovecraft, gore, absurdist humor, philosophy and the type of transgressive movies that leave you thinking I can’t believe I just saw that,” says McKendry. “It is a wild mix of horror, humor and heady moralistic concepts about our own existential realisations of who we really are, forcing each of us to stare into our personal abyss. And sometimes, the abyss stares back… and maybe has a favor to ask.”

Written by Todd Rigney, Joshua Hull and David Ian McKendry. AMP International’s Bob Portal and Inderpal Singh serve as producers along with Joe Wicker and Morgan Peter Brown from Fallback Plan Productions, Jason Scott Goldberg and Christian Armogida.

 It’s the long-anticipated crossover fans have been waiting for. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reprised their iconic Breaking Bad roles as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in tonight’s episode of the sixth and final season of the Emmy-nominated acclaimed drama series Better Call Saul. With only two episodes now left in the series, new episodes of Better Call Saul premiere Tuesdays, same day as the U.S. and only on Stan.

Cranston and Paul both won numerous awards for their incredible roles, including Golden Globes and Primetime Emmys, making their inclusion in the final season a must-watch event for Breaking Bad fans.

Heralded as “a beautiful tragedy and gripping character drama” (IndieWire) and “one of the best dramas on television” (Vulture), Better Call Saul’s final season concludes the complicated journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, season six tracks Jimmy, Saul and Gene as well as Jimmy’s complex relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn), who is in the midst of her own existential crisis. Meanwhile, Mike (Jonathan Banks), Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), Nacho (Michael Mando) and Lalo (Tony Dalton) are locked into a game of cat and mouse with mortal stakes.

Better Call Saul garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over five seasons, has earned 40 Emmy® Award nominations, four Golden Globe® Award nominations, six Writers Guild Awards, nine Critics’ Choice Awards, five Television Critics Association Awards and four AFI Awards for “TV Programs of the Year,” among many other Guild nominations.
