IGNITE: 'Nothing Can Stop Me' Video Released

Southern California's melodic hardcore-punk legends IGNITE have released a brand new video for "Nothing Can Stop Me", taken from their 2016 album, "A War Against You".

IGNITE is currently writing new music and hopes to be in the studio early next year. "We have tour dates planned throughout 2019 and are working on adding a lot more," says bassist Brett Rasmussen. "We are looking forward to a very busy 2019-20."

The follow-up to 2006's "Our Darkest Days", "A War Against You" was recorded over the course of a year with producer Cameron Webb (MOTÖRHEAD, SOCIAL DISTORTION, ALKALINE TRIO, PENNYWISE).

Rasmussen told In Effect Hardcore that singer Zoltán "Zoli" Téglás's addition to IGNITE in 1994 was a turning point in the band's career. "We had a couple of singers at the beginning of IGNITE and we pieced together a couple of demos to get a CD out there," he said. "However, we didn't have a singer when we got our first tour offer, so we started auditioning all these guys. Zoli was seriously the last guy we were going to audition. He was a friend of our former guitar player. When he came in the rehearsal room and we started playing the first song, we all stopped playing halfway through the first song. It was pretty apparent that the guy had a ridiculous voice and he could sing in time and he was on key and good at projecting. At that point, I kind of thought the sky was the limit with IGNITE. I knew we had the ability to write melodic and aggressive music and now with a great voice over it, I thought it would open up a lot of doors, and it did. A year after our first support tour, we did our own headlining tour in Europe in our own bus. We were all in our early twenties, on our own tour bus — it was unreal. Things moved really quick and it was cool to be involved in that whole process. We are very thankful and we don't take any of that stuff for granted."
