ROAM announce album, share new song + music video—watch

Cleveland-based Dead Leaves are releasing their debut album, Vultures, on Friday, Aug. 25 via Take This To Heart Records, and today they’re streaming the album early—and sharing the story about how their powerful, vulnerable debut came to be.

“The entire record is about vulnerability,” vocalist Elliott Blair explains. “Every song on the new record touches on some form of vulnerability. For example, ‘Talk Me Down’ is about building trust back up with someone that you’ve lost trust with. ‘Sunrise’ is about alzheimer's and losing touch with yourself; being vulnerable in the grand sun.”

The vulnerability isn’t anything new to Dead Leaves, who have always been boldly honest in their offerings. For the band, it’s their sonic delivery that has been discovered and solidified on this release.

“It wasn’t intentional at first. We were playing with a couple new songs that we had written and decided after one or two songs that that was the direction we wanted to go,” Blair says.

Game of Thrones: Emilia Clarke on Daenerys' 'heartbreaking' loss

This story contains spoilers from Game of Thrones season 7, episode 6, “Beyond the Wall”…
It finally happened: Daenerys Targaryen lost one of her priceless children. The death of Viserion the dragon was the unexpectedly steep cost of Jon Snow’s mission to bring a wight south as proof of the Army of the Dead. Taken down by a spear hurled by the Night King himself, the twist proved that Mother of Dragons’ children are not as invulnerable as they usually seem. Potentially even worse is that the Night King then resurrected the dragon’s body to join his force, giving his undead army a powerful new weapon.
“It’s a heartbreak,” star Emila Clarke tells EW. “Not only losing it but having that being given to the other side.”
For Daenerys, the death of Viserion makes defeating the Army of the Dead all the more crucial, Clarke notes. “My dragon could not have died for nothing, so this is now so important,” she says. “For the first time, you’re starting to see her defenses broken.”

Game of Thrones actor on his fatal fight 'Beyond the Wall'

Note: This story discusses plot points in Game of Thrones season 7, episode 6, “Beyond the Wall”…
You just knew all of our Game of Thrones heroes wouldn’t survive that perilous trek “Beyond the Wall.” And when the White Walkers and wights (and zombie polar bear!) closed in, it was knot-topped red priest Thoros of Myr (played by English comedian and actor Paul Kaye) who paid the ultimate price.
“I got the news last summer sometime, I missed a couple calls from , and that’s the kiss of death,” Kaye tells EW.
Was he disappointed that Thoros wouldn’t make it to the final season? “Obviously,” he says, but the actor was far more relieved that his character came back into the show last season and for season 7 in the first place. In George R.R. Martin’s novels upon which GoT is based, the journey of Thoros becomes intertwined with that of another character, Lady Stoneheart, who’s not in HBO’s version.
“It looked like they weren’t following Lady Stoneheart’s storyline in the show, so I prepared myself not to re-emerge,” he says. “So it was great to get back and have this adventure. Just staying alive for six seasons is an achievement in itself on this show.”

Power creator explains the reason behind the most shocking death yet

The penultimate episode of Power‘s fourth season tragically claimed a member of the St. Patrick family… but not the one you thought it would.
While Tariq’s (Michael Rainey Jr.) rebellion into the world of drugs and crime was surely never headed for a happy ending, the resulting death of Raina (Donshea Hopkins) was far from expected. Just as he was ready to end his short-lived criminal career, his past caught up with him in the form of Ray Ray (Marcus Callendar). The dirty undercover cop, who Tariq met through Kanan (50 Cent), was out to sew up any loose ends, and instead of Ghost’s (Omari Hardwick) son, he found his daughter. And as Tariq hid nearby, he watched as his twin sister’s confrontation with Ray Ray ended in her murder.
EW spoke with creator Courtney A. Kemp about the tragic final moments, the inevitability of Raina’s death, and why it wasn’t a hard decision to make.
