LA Based, 5 piece band FUSED BY DEFIANCE has released the official music video for their single, “Cancel Culture.” Originally premiered on GHOST CULT MAGAZINE, “Cancel Culture” was directed and edited by Ron Underwood.

player

“Cancel culture is a powerful weapon that when used appropriately, has the power to take down disgusting human-beings in less than 140 characters; something most court systems can’t manage to do in 140 days. But like a vigilante with no moral code or restraint, it can easily tip toward the dark-side. This song talks about the inappropriate usage of cancel culture. Metaphorically, a virus in the system; that searches through a person’s past and finds the one thing that may be able to bring them down as a petty response or knee jerk reaction to a human occasion. What cancel culture in this instance fails to take into account is the fallibility of humanity. Within this cycle is a tale of growth through experience which in current times are posted for public review. We are all human and all make mistakes, however only in the fallacy of stagnation does cancel culture become its own demise.” – FUSED BY DEFIANCE

IAN ABEL BAND Releases New Single, “Not Afraid to Die”!

91VhHXMXbDL. SS500

L.A. Based IAN ABEL BAND has released their new single, “Not Afraid to Die.” Produced by Jon Graber, “Not Afraid to Die” debuted as the theme for the Cody vs Darby TNT Championship match at AEW Full Gear 2020, the second of the band’s singles to be showcased on the popular professional wrestling company’s pay-per-view shows (2019 released “Shoes” was featured as the theme for the Dustin Rhodes versus Cody feud leading into AEW’s Double Or Nothing event).

Player

“I wrote and recorded this song specifically for Cody Rhodes. It was originally intended to be the Double or Nothing, Cody vs Dustin, promo, but Cody preferred “Shoes”. At the time, AEW was just beginning and I wanted to write something that I thought captured Cody’s trailblazer like spirit. In hindsight, the song was better suited for the video package which included, Steve-O, Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin. Three very original performers who have paved their own way into history. Something I admire and am attempting to do myself.” – IAN ABEL

Since then, Ian Abel Band added bassist Karthik Suresh, played the world famous Troubadour, relocated to Nashville, and worked again with Cody and AEW in November 2020 for Cody Rhodes vs Darby Allin at the pay-per-view, Full Gear..

Late Night Savior’s NEW ALT-METAL Cover of Sam Smith’s hit, “How Do You Sleep?” (feat. Royal Bliss) is Turning Some Heads!

Youtube-banner- squared-version

 LATE NIGHT SAVIOR has teamed up with fellow Salt Lake City, Utah band ROYAL BLISS for a high energy, hard rock/alt-metal cover of SAM SMITH’S 2019 “How Do You Sleep?” (feat. ROYAL BLISS). Produced by Crispin Earl, “How Do You Sleep?” (feat. ROYAL BLISS) is an array of soaring melodies, heavy hitting guitars, huge grooves and modern day production that will scratch the itch of pop, rock and metal fans alike. LATE NIGHT SAVIOR slated to be on ROCK SHOP RECORDS International Showcase Tour slated for the summer of 2021.

Player

“When asked if we wanted to do a cover song for the new album I knew right away which song I would like to do. Sam Smith’s – “How Do You Sleep” is not only a great tune but its very relatable for so many. Feeling as though or knowing someone is trying to deceive you is a horrible feeling all by itself, but its who you become in the midst that might be the worst part. You become like another version of yourself and it can all hit you like the stages of grief. Paranoia, sadness, depression, anxiety, self doubt, anger and hopefully acceptance that without trust there can’t truly be love. We decided to do this song with another Utah native band, our friends in “Royal Bliss” and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. Hopefully our version of “How Do You Sleep” does justice to the emotion brought by the original!” – Brandon Johnson – (lead Singer) Late Night Savior

SYDNEY SHERWOOD Releases Official Lyric Video for “Creep”

135750563 237630121106986 4716912388952406720 n

New Jersey based Singer / Songwriter SYDNEY SHERWOOD has released the official lyric video for “Creep,” which was created by Jared Dylan of Red 13 Studios, and is the first single off of her upcoming, sophomore EP, Headspace. Produced and co-written by Brian Craddock, guitarist of Daughtry and owner of The Cat Room Recording Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, Headspace is due to release on February 27, 2021.

Player

“Being someone that has struggled with anxiety, when it came to writing ‘Creep,’ I really wanted to give an inside look on what anxiety feels like, the emotions you experience while in a panic attack, and the idea that the same mind that thinks of the beauty of life is also the one that thinks negative thoughts which can really drag you down. I found in my experience that some people didn’t understand what it was like to have anxiety and would just tell me to “be positive” or “just don’t think about it” and I wished they understood or could feel what was going on inside. My main goal with this song was to illustrate the war that goes on in your head when you have anxiety as well as how you can either choose to let fear overcome you or you can overcome that fear. – SYDNEY SHERWOOD

New York based Progressive Instrumental Space rock band PONTUS has released the official music video for the title single off of their album, Black Hole BBQ.

People make music to get a reaction. Music is communication.” – Yoko Ono

If there is truth in that statement, then perhaps the true measure of a musician is the reaction and response his or her music gets. Pontus Gunve has garnered quite a few reviews over the years that can be an indication of that relationship. It’s a great place to start in understanding Pontus Gunve and his group PHWG.

Pete Feenstra at Get Ready to Rock said, “Pontus has a keen sense of the musical possibilities his impressionist style offers him.” Translated from Swedish, Jan-Erik Zandersson said this in Nya Upplaga, “Musically, this is a kind of progressive post-rock with a historical focus.” In a review of Gunve’s latest disc, Andrew Metzgler of Mountain Weekly News said, “The only way I can describe The Observer is by comparing it to Pink FloydBeats AntiqueUmphrey’s McGeeQueen, and The John Butler Trio (2006 period)…Take elements from all of those bands, combine them with a few classic instruments and you can have an inkling as to what Pontus HW Gunve is bringing to the table.”

So, where does Pontus Gunve come from? The simple answer is New York City. That’s only the geographical location for his current stop on the musical journey that is his life, though. Gunve grew up in Sweden and was first fully gripped by his passion for music there when he saw Jean Michel Jarre’s Rendezvous Houston: A City in Concert on television as a child. Blown away by Jarre’s all-encompassing high-tech stage show and the endless layers of his album Oxygene, he began to explore the capabilities of computers to create different sounds and textures. His fascination with rock music led him to electric guitar, which he began to study voraciously, simultaneously imagining ways to expand its boundaries. At the same time, he experimented with sequencing and learned how to build computer and synthesizer modules that could be used practically during performances and on recordings.

Pontus Gunve’s music embraces the theory that music is a multi-dimensional experience and an adventure in wordless storytelling that fully absorbs the audience’s mind, body and spirit. Flowing through time and space, the lush sonic textures he creates evoke the ethereal landscapes of other-worldly multi-media artists such as Jean Michel Jarre and Boards of Canada while still clearly inspired by the thick, dark compositional textures of legendary heavy metal bands like Megadeth. And his energy as a guitarist celebrates numerous influences, from the technical proficiency of Steve Vai and the raw, exotic approach of Marty Friedman, to the minimalistic moments created by legendary blues performers. Gunve’s finely-tuned skills in the studio as both a producer and engineer allow him to seamlessly unify many different musical styles and a wide range of instruments into intricately-crafted, mesmerizing recordings resonating with unexpected surprises.

Of course, again, looking to reviewers can give us more insight into that sound. AtMusic Street Journal, Jason Hillenburg said of Gunve’s latest disc, “There are few musicians in the mold of Pontus Gunve. Rarely content to rely on the traditional, but instead plundering it for his own uses, Gunve brings a European sensibility to dense, intensely musical instrumentals. His album, The Observer, ranks as one of the most challenging and, ultimately, rewarding releases of the year.” Scott Kahn had this to say of the single “Cavalry of Camels” at MusicPlayers.com: “World Music meets Prog Metal in the latest single from Pontus Gunve. This is big orchestral stuff that rocks thanks to the solid guitar and drums anchoring the complex rhythms. The percussion and string section really give the music its international, ethnic vibe… Melodic, rocking, beautifully produced… I’m not fully sure how we’d categorize it, but we definitely enjoy listening to it.” At Mr. Music ChroniclesLarry Toering said, “There is just no describing the sheer quality on offer here. It’s something one must hear for themselves to really dig into properly, so it comes highly recommended…If you like your music laid back and intense at the same time, with an eastern vibe that won’t quit, this is right up your alley. In fact, to me it’s so awesome that I will be not only recommending for years to come, I will be following this artist’s progress from here out.”

Ludwig Von Beethoven said, “Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life. “ Gunve translates his sensual impressions of the universe into intricate, personal and melodic musical passages that vividly illustrate his life’s rich and complex journey and allow him to connect powerfully with his own musicians, the audience and with each space he performs. He has composed music and worked as a sound designer for a wide range of independent films and Web projects as well as for various large-scale art projects in Sweden. He founded his own instrumental project, PHWG in 2007, a group that combines video, electronic instruments, cello, violin, drums and tabla/darbuka. With that group he has released Four full albums and ONE EP, Black Hole BBQ (2019), IV (EP – 2016), The Observer (2013), Movements (2008), and Great Wall of Sound (2006).

Las Vegas transplant, C.C. Storm, launches his debut solo effort, Passionately Angry from local label, Psycho Records.

Storm hails from his native Pocono Mountains, and moved to Las Vegas in 2010. Storm has been playing since 1982 and studied at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. He has been long sought after in various bands due to his knowledge of being able to play intricate parts and being able to sing at the same time. Storm cites KISS as his biggest influence musically but even he says his styles vary.

After taking a long break in the 90’s and in the early 2000’s, Storm returned to his passion when he decided to move to Las Vegas in 2010. After a rough start and a marriage separation, Storm returned to the stage on a fluke one night after being invited to “KISS KARAOKE” at the world famous Monster Mini-Golf featuring KISS. Stepping up to the microphone with his bass in hand, Storm belted out many KISS Classics which garnered the attention of musicians like Armored Saints’ Jeff Duncan and Sunset Strip legend Johnny Lust. Singing Paul Stanley is not an easy task, but after years of studying the Starchild, C.C. nailed it.

Deciding for himself using his real first name wasn’t going to cut it, he decided to change his name to C.C., where he then began to work on his first solo album at his long time friend owned Chase Music Studio. Studio owner, Dave Chase, began to hone and shape his sound delivering what was a sudden shock to the local musician scene. Within a few weeks of its initial release, “Cross” was gaining attention amongst the local rock radio scene. Former Faster Pussycat guitarist, Brent Muscat, was spinning it on his radio show regularly.

C.C. is currently recording the follow up to “Passionately Angry” which will be titled, “Rise The Horizon”, which will be released by mid 2021.

Almost everyone you know has seen a concert that has moved them. Those productions can take over 100+ traveling crew members to set up by the time doors open.

Before and during the show they sweat and hustle to get everything ready. After the show they spend more hours erasing evidence that they were ever there at all. Many of these key players work an average of 20 hour days, then move on to the next city to make it happen all over again.

Many of these crew members, “roadies,” have been doing this as a career for decades. Some of these roadies, while experts in this field, have never had any other job experience. Since the world pandemic, well over a hundred thousand of these people are left with no income and no financial assistance.

There are no concerts or live events for the foreseeable future. At the beginning of 2020, job opportunity ceased to exist and 2021 remains uncertain. Many are unable to claim unemployment as their expert level trade skills are not recognized and they do not qualify. This on-going problem is leaving 100s of roadies without a secure livelihood.

The government has fallen short. Contacting congressmen and women, senators, and governors to raise the issue has been met with no resolution. Their replies are a formal brush-off and roadies are left hitting a dead end.

The goal with this gofundme is to offer some relief to some of the dedicated people in the roadie community. Just like you, they have families, mortgages, car payments, and day care. Commonly these workers lean on their savings between tour cycles, but those funds have run thin or run out. Please donate if you can, every little helps.

Industrial/Metal Band SCREAM AT THE SKY Unleash A “World Of Hate”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

January 1, 2020
 – Texas industrial/metal band SCREAM AT THE SKY has unleashed a brand new video for their song, “World Of Hate.”  The track appears on SCREAM AT THE SKY‘s self-titled EP which dropped in February of 2020.

The “World Of Hate” video was directed by Erik Gustafson courtesy of Erik Gustafson Cinematography and Brian Carter.

“This is actually one of the first songs I wrote for SCREAM AT THE SKY.  I wrote the song about a real life situation of one of my close friends giving up everything because of their world falling down around them .

The song itself was written to inspire people to be proud of what they have. Life tests you every day.  But you’re not alone because the same battles that you facie involve and impact more than you if you fail. 

It’s also about looking directly into a person who is not really there in their mind, soul, and spirit; a body walking in a world without a soul… without purpose, only hatred and doubt living in their mind. It’s about finding your way by turning your hate into purpose through stepping up and taking the test the world of hate throws at you.

It’s written to get a message to the person directly that was and is still fighting their own battles, with hope that one day they get back to doing what they are good at and love. Come down walk in a world of hate. This is just another test that you have to take!!!” – Brian Carter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

December 19, 2020 – 
Texas goth-rock band IN A DARKENED ROOM has unveiled their new video for the song, “Final Vows.”  This is the third single off of their debut album slated for release in 2021. The video made it’s premiere on ReGen Magazine HERE:

For fans of:  THE CURE & DRAB MAJESTY

“Final Vows was written about a love lost, and the realization of knowing as things pass and change with time, they sometimes leave a trace of what was. The feeling that time may come  and go, but the strongest emotions we experience leave an imprint on this world, and we sometimes unknowingly search for these remnants again.  The song is about feeling something special, whether it be a person or an idea, and having to say goodbye to those things, and wandering the Earth wondering if you will ever find them again.”

“A mother brings a care package across town to her adult daughter who is (with her fiance and two dogs) at home on quarantine. Standing outside, the mom can see the tears streaming down her baby’s cheeks. Inside, the daughter looks out and sees tears on her mama’s face as well. This is Christmas Through the Glass.

You may be separated from someone you love this Christmas, and that separation may be taking a toll on you both. You may be missing each other for months. And here come the holidays, when what you long for most is to be together with family and friends. Whether the glass you face is in a window, or a door, or on a computer or a phone, the warm hug you wish for is…. alas, still a ways away.

Christmas Through the Glass is a sad song. My hope is that it reminds us what we have, what we share, and where we agree. I hope it brings you and your family and friends (and all of us) a little bit closer together.” – GREG WILLIAMSON

HadeesMarket Band 1500x1000

Hadees Market is a musical manifestation of me, Greg Williamson. I’ve been exceedingly fortunate to make recorded music here in the US Pacific Northwest with my brother and a few best friends since 1980. I was in a couple different DIY/indie-punk/alternative bands through the ‘80s, and in a regularly gigging post-punk band in the first half of the ‘90s as a drummer. About 1995 I started taking songwriting more seriously, and now I mostly write on guitar.

In 2003, I put out my first six-song EP as Hadees Market, and asked my musician friends to join me on different tracks. Only seventeen years later, in 2020, I’m putting out my latest EP, entitled “To the Island, From the Lake.” The new EP is me with the full band sound; I also perform as a singer-songwriter with just me and a guitar.

The name of the band comes from the name of my grandparents’ grocery store in Olympia, WA in Mud Bay in the 1940’s. My grandmother was “Hazel” and my grandfather “Ira Dee,” so they called the place Hadees Market.
People used to come in and ask my grandpa if he was Mr. Hadees. He always said “yes.”

SEPTEMBER MOURNING Release Official Music Video for New Single, “Wake the Dead”

Wake The Dead Cover

Hard Rock Graphic Novel Art Project SEPTEMBER MOURNING has released the official music video for their newest single, “Wake the Dead.” With the video created by Riven (guitarist), the Sahaj Ticotin (RaStarset) produced single is the band’s first release partnered with Legend Recordings and INgrooves.

Player

“‘Wake the Dead’ is an anthemic track that dispels the nature of the herd mentality in our society today. The song is written from the point of view of our main character in the graphic novel, September, as she observes the world of the living in which she consistently takes souls from. The track urges the listener to take control of their own thoughts about the world around them and make their own decisions instead of relying on choices skewed heavily by the propaganda that one is constantly bombarded with. ‘Wake the Dead’ encourages the listener to wake from their slumber and make their mark on the world today by raising their conscious thought as well as their voice.” – SEPTEMBER MOURNING

Legendary Hip Hop Pioneer DMC (RUN-D.M.C) Featured on New Society 1 Track / Video, “The Man

DMC ZANE

 Legendary Hip Hop Pioneer DMC (RUN-D.M.C) has been featured on a new Society 1 track / video entitled “The Man,” the second collaboration for the band and music icon. With instrumentation written and performed by lead vocalist MATT ZANE and guest drumming by ZAC MORRIS (Ugly Kid Joe,Hed PEDorothySeptember Mourning) “The Man” appears an unlikely collaboration due to Zane not being known publicly for his songwriting or guitar playing but, unknown to most, he is actually a graduate of MIT for guitar.

Since then Zane has written and licensed multiple songs for various outlets but took a substantial break the last few years to focus on his directing career. DMC and Zane met when the late Wayne Static introduced them, believing Zane would be a good fit for directing the music video and track “Noise Revolution,” which Wayne sang on. After directing the video, Zane was inspired by the collaboration but was overwhelmed with music video work which forced his musical aspirations to be neglected for years to come. After a conscious shift to re-focus on Zane’s band Society 1 he specifically had DMC in mind for a feature.

player

“Collaborating with DMC was an absolute dream come true. Before I knew about The Doors or Jimi Hendrix, RUN-DMC were my gods. My very first guitar lesson I showed up with a copy of ‘Raising Hell’ because my teacher asked me to bring in music of my favorite artists…I swear to you I almost cried when I heard his iconic voice over my music and playing for the first time. It was a religious experience. I put it at the same level as when I performed at The Download Festival suspended with my band Society 1 in front of 80,000 people.” – Matt Zane

“Lord Zane creates music that is insane! Powerful, energetic, fun, and captivating. He gave me that HARD hitting riff ROCKING sound that takes the King Of Rock to the next level! The beat and the guitars for the collaboration we did grabbed me in a headlock! The sound, arrangements and vibe is a force to be reckoned with! He has allowed me to continue to live my Rock N Roll dream. He’s “ the man” that’s why I called this song The Man…lol…the music dictated the title and vibe! This track definitely absolutely and completely ROCKS and Rolls!!! So move out the way!” – DMC

SMALL TOWN TITANS’ Viral Bluesy, Hard Rock “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch” Topping 2020 Christmas Playlists!

GrinchArtwork

York, PA heavy rock band Small Town Titans‘ incredible rendition of the classic “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch” is fast becoming a Christmas standard! Showcasing the trio’s bluesy, heavy influence and front-man Phil Freeman’s phenomenal range, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” went viral in a matter of days in November, 2018, leading to charting on various Billboard charts including Holiday Digital Song SalesRock Digital Song SalesEmerging Artists, while reaching #5 on the Next Big Sound chart. The song also reached #2 on the iTunes Rock charts, only being surpassed by Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. So, if you’re ready to throw off 2020 and get into the Christmas spirit, add this exceptional cover to your playlist!

“Our cover of this classic is a gift that keeps on giving for us and we’re grateful for an era where songs are easily available to be covered. It’s all thanks to Ben’s (guitar player) insistence on making more content and our manager Shil’s suggestion to do a version of a Christmas song. Every year we watch a spike happen in the number of people who discover who we are and what we do. We’re just happy if a few people find out about us, but for whatever reason it’s usually in the thousands, if not tens of thousands. It’s something we may never get used to.” – Phil Freeman

Player

“Move over, “Holly Jolly Christmas.” The holiday season has officially gone metal, and, believe it or not, it’s perfect.” – Billboard

“One listen to Small Town Titans’ version and you’ll hear that Phil Freeman’s deep baritone and delivery is a perfect fit to capture the spirit of the original. Freeman, who also plays bass for the band, teams with drummer Jonny Ross and guitarist Ben Guiles to put their own fresh take on the track, giving it a bluesy feel with a definite darker vibe. Take a listen as the guys cover it in the studio in the video above.” – Loudwire

“Ideal for fellow holiday “grinches” everywhere, this cover is the perfect seasonal concoction. Frontman Phil Freeman captures the film’s essence with greasy, yet defined vocals reminiscent of the Grinch himself. The rest of the band’s heavy influence makes their rendition of “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” a fitting choice for your not-so-traditional family festivities.” – Alternative Press

The Small Town Titans are an American rock n’ roll power trio from York, Pennsylvania, who love to constantly create, as well as play live. Gone is the notion that a rock band should only release 10 songs at a time every 2 years. In a world where music fans crave new content constantly, the Small Town Titans aim to deliver their brand of art all of the time, drawing inspiration from rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, and Deep Purple. Thanks to their efforts at taking matters into their own hands, STT can create and release songs, podcasts, live online concerts, and more with no rules. In a social media driven world, STT knows releasing quality, constant content for their fans is as important as playing great live shows.

The band was formed on May 4, 2011 at Lebanon Valley College, where Phil, Ben, and Jonny all met, and had finally decided to jam together towards the end of Phil’s senior year . Phil and Jonny had been close friends for years prior to the band’s first jam session, with Ben and Jonny also having known each other and staying in touch throughout school since freshman year. After playing together, it didn’t take long for the group to decide to start playing shows live locally. The name “Small Town Titans” had been in Phil’s back pocket for years, and he had finally found the band that fit the name. It didn’t take long for the group to grow a very loyal local fanbase, as they continued to hone their live performance chops, playing clubs on weekends and mixing their original material with covers of classic and modern rock songs. Soon after, the band began to take their career more seriously. They decided to hit the road full time, and began to release more material, and plenty of music videos.

In November of 2018, the band’s cover of the Christmas song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” went viral in a matter of days, leading to charting on various Billboard charts including Holiday Digital Song SalesRock Digital Song SalesEmerging Artists, and reaching #5 on the Next Big Sound chart. The song also reached #2 on the iTunes Rock charts, only being surpassed by Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. STT quickly found themselves achieving success, all on their own terms. That success continues into this decade with songs such as “The Man”, “Universal Limits” and “Rufflin’ Feathers” all landing on playlists such as Spotify’s Hard RockNew Metal Tracks, and Hot Road TripApple Music’s New in Rock, and YouTube Music’s Maximum Decibels.

As a newly signed act to AntiFragile Music, the band is releasing their first album with a record label, The Ride,. Under the tutelage of label owner and music industry veteran Tom Sarig (Nine Inch NailsBlink-182Sammy Hagar), the new album shows STT pushing into more musical directions than ever before, from the Queen inspired “Behind The Moon”, to the angsty and aggressive “When It All Comes Down”. “Rufflin’ Feathers” delivers a tongue-in-cheek message about today’s social media circus, while “9 To 5”, the album’s ballad, has more country crossover appeal than anything else in their catalog. “Sex and Candy”, a Marcy Playground cover, brings the blues, while “The Ride” title track showcases plenty of musicality, and an evolution to the band’s sound. There are plenty of big, loud hooks throughout, all the while without losing the edge of a rock n’ roll band who sounds just as good live as they do on their recordings.

With the help of AntiFragile Music, Small Town Titans have managed to find continued success by simply never forgetting one thing, their fans, both new and old. After asking their fans to vote on their fanbase name, they decided on calling themselves the Titan Army. As the Titan Army grows, so does the band right along with them. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with plenty of stage banter in between songs, and no two shows ever being the same. The band simply hits the stage to deliver an energy driven show using guitars, drums, and their voices. Nothing more, nothing less. This approach to their live performances has led to them sharing the stage with acts such as Highly SuspectPapa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

“This was the 1st video we filmed for Revolver, and it was a blast! In a lot of ways, filming this video was a dream come true. We spend a lot of time dreaming about what it would’ve been like to have a band in the MTV days, so it only made sense to set the video in that vision. The song itself was heavily influenced by the sounds of the 80’s & we’re so excited to have a video that matches that vibe. We did our absolute best to pay homage to Slash & Guns n’ Roses by recreating (to the best of our ability) the November Rain solo. It was so great to be able to pay homage to those who paved the way for us, & throw ourselves into their image. We really hope you dig it! Keep the Faith.” – FAITH & SCARS

Faith & Scars is an American Rock band. With members hailing from all around the US, (North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida) they are currently based out of Selma, NC. They come at you with a southern flare and a touch of soul. Even through their most difficult times, Faith & Scars has found a way to stick together; bound by their mantra: Keep the Faith.

The band states: “We’ve found that if you hold faith in something, and hold it tight – be it your dreams, family, a significant other, yourself, or God – You’ll find yourself possessing a force that will push you to be the best that you can be.”

Faith & Scars has a profound love for music and finds inspiration through many bands & artists. They proudly wear their 90’s-2000’s rock influence on their sleeves, yet distinctly display classic sounds comparative to Guns n RosesJimi Hendrix, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Blended all together, you get a sound that can be compared to bands such as ShinedownBon Jovi & Black Stone Cherry.

The band adds, “We just want to be the best we can be, and have a good time doing it. It’s a lot of hard work, and sometimes heartache to keep a band together, but if we can touch someone with a lyric, or affect anyone in a positive way by doing what we do… then we’ve done our job. We aim to put on the best show we can every time we step onto a stage. Whether it’s 2,000 people, or 2 people and the bartender – we play every show like it’s a sold out stadium.”

“We’re finding our way as an independent band. We’re working hard to reinvent ourselves at every step of the way. We believe we have done that with this record. We have full faith in Revolver, and we’re proud to have a product that we can stand behind. Our sights are set & we’re about to take our shot. We just hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do.”

We are Faith & Scars and this is Revolver”.

Player

“I wanted to get the message out to people that everyone has their own daily struggles. It’s something that needs to be addressed whether we see it or not. I think everyone should hear this. It’s okay to not be okay 100% of the time. I feel that’s what makes the people who are wanting to reach out for help or to talk to a really awkward spot because we put all the focus on that. It’s not ok to point at the fact at how weird they are or different they are, let alone ourselves. There’s gonna be days where we wish we didn’t wake up but we have to push through that mental block that keeps fighting us. The message I wanted to get with this song is, you’re not alone. Many of us hide our problems from society and I think that’s something we as people should help each other more with. Our minds can be a scary place sometimes and all we need is that little bit of comfort to feel alright “ – DAKOTA SEAN

Early Praise for The Ride:

“Pennsylvania’s Small Town Titans reignite the fire of rock and roll and let it burn brightly on the band’s new album The Ride. Set to drop November 13th, 2020 on AntiFragile Music, the record is one of the best rock releases of our current era and shows us all just how much life is left in the primordial power trio format. ” – Rock & Blues Muse

“One-hundred percent killer with absolutely zero filler, The Ride is an incredible display of modern rock that builds on the active rock style of the past two decades and infuses it with a much needed rejuvenating shot that returns a raw sense of danger and primal excitement to the genre.” – SPILL MAGAZINE

The Small Town Titans are an American rock n’ roll power trio from York, Pennsylvania, who love to constantly create, as well as play live. Gone is the notion that a rock band should only release 10 songs at a time every 2 years. In a world where music fans crave new content constantly, the Small Town Titans aim to deliver their brand of art all of the time, drawing inspiration from rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, and Deep Purple. Thanks to their efforts at taking matters into their own hands, STT can create and release songs, podcasts, live online concerts, and more with no rules. In a social media driven world, STT knows releasing quality, constant content for their fans is as important as playing great live shows.

The band was formed on May 4, 2011 at Lebanon Valley College, where Phil, Ben, and Jonny all met, and had finally decided to jam together towards the end of Phil’s senior year . Phil and Jonny had been close friends for years prior to the band’s first jam session, with Ben and Jonny also having known each other and staying in touch throughout school since freshman year. After playing together, it didn’t take long for the group to decide to start playing shows live locally. The name “Small Town Titans” had been in Phil’s back pocket for years, and he had finally found the band that fit the name. It didn’t take long for the group to grow a very loyal local fanbase, as they continued to hone their live performance chops, playing clubs on weekends and mixing their original material with covers of classic and modern rock songs. Soon after, the band began to take their career more seriously. They decided to hit the road full time, and began to release more material, and plenty of music videos.

In November of 2018, the band’s cover of the Christmas song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” went viral in a matter of days, leading to charting on various Billboard charts including Holiday Digital Song SalesRock Digital Song SalesEmerging Artists, and reaching #5 on the Next Big Sound chart. The song also reached #2 on the iTunes Rock charts, only being surpassed by Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. STT quickly found themselves achieving success, all on their own terms. That success continues into this decade with songs such as “The Man”, “Universal Limits” and “Rufflin’ Feathers” all landing on playlists such as Spotify’s Hard RockNew Metal Tracks, and Hot Road TripApple Music’s New in Rock, and YouTube Music’s Maximum Decibels.

As a newly signed act to AntiFragile Music, the band is releasing their first album with a record label, The Ride,. Under the tutelage of label owner and music industry veteran Tom Sarig (Nine Inch NailsBlink-182Sammy Hagar), the new album shows STT pushing into more musical directions than ever before, from the Queen inspired “Behind The Moon”, to the angsty and aggressive “When It All Comes Down”. “Rufflin’ Feathers” delivers a tongue-in-cheek message about today’s social media circus, while “9 To 5”, the album’s ballad, has more country crossover appeal than anything else in their catalog. “Sex and Candy”, a Marcy Playground cover, brings the blues, while “The Ride” title track showcases plenty of musicality, and an evolution to the band’s sound. There are plenty of big, loud hooks throughout, all the while without losing the edge of a rock n’ roll band who sounds just as good live as they do on their recordings.

With the help of AntiFragile Music, Small Town Titans have managed to find continued success by simply never forgetting one thing, their fans, both new and old. After asking their fans to vote on their fanbase name, they decided on calling themselves the Titan Army. As the Titan Army grows, so does the band right along with them. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with plenty of stage banter in between songs, and no two shows ever being the same. The band simply hits the stage to deliver an energy driven show using guitars, drums, and their voices. Nothing more, nothing less. This approach to their live performances has led to them sharing the stage with acts such as Highly SuspectPapa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

“Scratching At The Surface is about people making you out to be something you’re not. The song describes the pressure of defining yourself in an environment where people tend to take one look at you and assume they know who you are; and they’re often wrong”. – 2Shadows

Player

“The first moment I heard the 2 Shadows demos, I knew that this was a band that I wanted to sign to Rock Shop Records. It was a lot of fun Producing and Co-Writing on this track and in the end it turned out even better than I had hoped. I’m super stoked I got to also sing on the track, I’m just very grateful to have had this opportunity!” – Crispin Earl – THE VEER UNION

We are constantly building and evolving our stage show so our fans can always expect something different and exciting!”

BrokenRail Release New Single & Music Video, “DEMON IN DISGUISE”

2019-MAIN-PROMO-FINAL-ZOOMED-SMALL-RGB

Birmingham, AL based , Hard Rock / Metal band BrokenRail has released the official music music video for their new single, “DEMON IN DISGUISE. “Directed by Alan Collins, “DEMON IN DISGUISE” off of the band’s newly released album with Cleopatra RecordsBEAUTIFUL CHAOS, which was produced, mixed, engineered, and recorded by Joseph McQueen at Sparrow Sound in Los Angeles, CA.

“We wanted to go in a different direction for the video for ‘Demon in Disguise.’ We chose an abstract theme for such a lyrically ambiguous song. Demon is a deep dive into the splinters of darkness that we allow to imprison us, enlighten us, or liberate us. Whether it’s addiction, depression, toxic relationships, etc, sometimes we give in to the temptation of the easiest route in exchange for our own salvation. We enter into these scenarios thinking we can control them, but as is often the case we overstep our boundaries or abilities and fall into this ever revolving trap we just cannot escape from. At the time, the allure seems to be somehow worth the risk, but sometimes you find yourself in a directionless void. We’re so excited to present to you our 2nd release off of our label debut album, ‘Demon in Disguise’!” – Blake Clawson / Vocalist

Player

“After a year-long journey navigating the uncharted waters as musicians, we left LA on top of the world in January only to fall like everyone else into the uncertainty and grinding halt of being thrust into a global pandemic. After sacrificing so much to pull this album off by walking away from day jobs, missing important events, living off savings, and time away from our families, this was to be our busiest year with so much on the horizon and then the world felt like it ended for us. 2020 has now become a story of adapting and learning to survive through the harshest of environments, to fight when it feels there’s little strength left and yet somehow move forward. This album encaptures this spirit at every turn. Whether it’s truthful tales of facing one’s own demons in titles such as ‘Beautiful Chaos’, ‘Nightmare’, ‘Demon in Disguise’, & ‘The Haunted’, or overcoming extreme adversity in songs like ‘On My Own’, ‘Reignite’, and ‘Never Be The Same’ there’s something for everyone on this album. The songs perfectly flow from one to the other telling a story of our journey and the ups and downs that have brought us to this very moment. Over the past couple of months we’ve released two singles, ‘The Hate’ and ‘Creatures’, introducing a new sound from BrokenRail showcasing our heavier side and a new direction, the evolution of the band. The album still captures classic BrokenRail through multiple styles, bleeding the lines between rock, hard rock, & metal along the way. We truly feel like fans of the new sound as well as fans from the past will collectively enjoy this album from beginning to end. We’re so excited to finally release this to the world!” – Blake Clawson / Vocalist

“As Covid-19 cripples the world and continues mass shutdowns everywhere, and with the current amount of extreme civil unrest in the USA, Dead Girls Corp. took aim at recording the song ‘Great Big White World’ by Marilyn Manson whom Toddy Deadboy (vocals) worked for for 5 years as his personal assistant .

In Hollywood, Ca, a dark alleyway forbodes, connecting Studio 56 and the Record Plant. Music legends of today and yesterday from ElvisMarilyn Monroe and Mel Torme holed themselves into these studios, all of them making records in the same one hundred yard radius. And, like many stories of legend, the lost replaced the heroes, the junkies replaced the giants, and Satan replaced Sinatra. In the middle, another entryway leads to DeadZone Sound Design. Home of Dead Girls Corp. for the past 10 years. Imagine Depeche Mode with a beat box through a distortion pedal , playing ultra pop at a Satanic disco. Dave Teague burns a hypnotic guitar straight into the psyche. Bruce Miyaki churns the vulgarity within the soul on his bass. Then Mel Mcfail hammers the earth like a sledge , forcing trauma to the body. And all of this abrasion is honed and torqued by the pop-evil song crafting of Toddy T..With the old millennium come and gone, the real Apocalyptic party is ready to begin….
