Hailing from Chicago’s renowned Wax Trax! Records stable of recording artists, MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT have been conjuring up sonic tales of sex, blasphemy and kitschy horror since 1987. Along with label mates such as Front 242KMFDM and Ministry, TKK (as often abbreviated), helped develop the industrial music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating one of the most diverse repertoires in modern day music. Their sound can be described as electronic rock, heavily influenced by both disco and funk. One of their most distinctive characteristics is the use of spoken-word samples lifted from B-movies laced throughout their songs. Since debuting, they have released 13 studio albums, and their music has been featured in a variety of films, television/cable shows and soundtracks, all the while making a reputation for themselves as one of the most notorious and controversial cult bands of their generation.

Artist Franke Nardiello and musician Marston Daley, two Chicago neighbors who enjoyed late night burritos while watching foreign horror movies on VHS rented from the corner store, began conspiring to make a trashy B movie (in the style of Russ Meyer and John Waters) to be called “My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult”. While the film itself never came to fruition, they also wrote some music to be the accompanying soundtrack. Both worked at Wax Trax! Records in Chicago, and when the label heard the tracks, they were intrigued and eager to release it.

The duo took the title of the film as the name for their band, and decided to focus on the musical group full time. Taking the stage names Groovie Mann (Nardiello) and Buzz McCoy (Daley), they worked on creating an occult-biker meets disco-rock influence look for the project, which included a bevy of voluptuous back-up singers and dancers known as the BOMB GANG GIRLZ. The New York Times wrote, “Sex, blasphemy, big beats and go-go dancing; they’re all in a day’s work for My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult ”. This attracted the attention of indie fans and the ire of religious groups in practically equal measure. They released their first album I See Good Spirits And I See Bad Spirits in 1988 followed up by the hard-hitting dance floor classics “Kooler Than Jesus” and “A Girl Doesn’t Get Killed By A Make-Believe Lover Cuz It’s Hot,” which featured no-wave chanteuse Lydia Lunch on vocals. By the time they released their second album, Confessions Of A Knife (1990), they were far and away one of the biggest selling acts on the label.

In 1991, the band embarked on the decadent “Sexplosion! Tour”, titled after their third album. Alternative Press reviewed the show as “Sin-sational!”. The tour was a success and the record sold so well that they signed a deal with Interscope Records shortly afterwards, and the single “Sex On Wheelz” became a sizeable radio hit.

Hollywood also embraced the group, recognizing the unique cinematic aspect of their sound. The band’s music has appeared in a slew of films and tv/cable shows including, director Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World”, Paul Verhoven’s saucy “Showgirls”, MTV’s “Beavis And Butthead“, and the cult film classic “The Crow”, in which the ensemble make a cameo appearance performing their song “After The Flesh”. More recently the KULT was written into the story line of the 2014 film “Sexy Evil Genius” starring Seth Green.

THRILL KILL KULT continue to release new material via their own SleazeBox Records label (sleazebox.com) and tour extensively with a rotating cast of musicians and dubious characters, however the core of the project has always been Nardiello and Daley, both on record and in the live act. Their performances sizzle with sleaze and infectious grooves, as Melody Maker once described, “A red hot cabaret from Hell”.

They begin their 4th decade this year with the release of a new album, In The House Of Strange Affairs on February 14th, and a North American tour commencing May 5th in Las Vegas. The current line-up is Groovie Mann (vocals), Buzz McCoy (keys), Mimi Star (bass), Justin Thyme (drums), Arena Rock (Bomb Gang Girl).

Deepfall drops their latest album, Broken, via Pavement Entertainment. Broken is available on CD through Pavement’s Online Store and on streaming platforms everywhere.

Rich Hopkins, the vocalist of Deepfall, says on Broken, “My favorite song performance wise from the new album would have to be ‘Ghost.’ It’s a fairly deep song for me, and playing it on stage is a bit of a rollercoaster ride.” He also appreciates seeing the different reactions fans have to Deepfall’s music. “Everyone who listens to our music can incorporate their own circumstances to each song. It’s amazing to see what our fans take away from it.”

Deepfall conjures an enveloping storm of carefully crafted hard rock that strikes the soul with stinging honesty. Masterfully capturing thematic darkness, the band leaves a sonic trail of scorched post-apocalyptic earth behind its musical machine, blazing a path through the heaviness of life with an equally heavy response.

DEEPFALL conjures an enveloping storm of carefully crafted hard rock that strikes the soul with stinging honesty.

Cutting to the bone with soaring instrumental passages, spirited choruses, and precisely placed breakdowns, the band thrives in the expanse of rock ’n’ roll’s vast sub-genres.

Masterfully capturing thematic darkness, the band leaves a sonic trail of scorched post-apocalyptic earth behind its musical machine, blazing a path through the heaviness of life with an equally heavy response.
Situated in Greenville, Michigan, the group’s current lineup, which began to take shape in 2015, is comprised of Rich Hopkins (vocals/guitar), Nick Gray (drums), Tim King (keyboards), Anthony Battista (lead guitar 1), Max Carrillo (lead guitar 2), and Taylor Brandt (bass).

In a short time, DEEPFALL has carved its place in the American rock scene with broad, muscular soundscapes forged in the studio and resurrected onstage. The band’s latest release, Broken, employs a signature brand of soulful songwriting rounded out by an unapologetic combination of surging guitars, rattling bass, mesmerizing keyboards, heavy drums and Hopkins’ roaring lead vocals.

Behind the veil of these ferocious soundscapes, DEEPFALL emerges as an outfit of determined musicians with a deep love for their craft and a hope to connect with listeners through engaging story-driven rock.

DEEPFALL has supported national acts such as HinderSOiLTantricSmile Empty SoulSaving AbelThe Iron Maidens, Texas Hippie Coalition, and Wayland, while having performed at venues such as The IntersectionThe Stache, and The Music Factory. The band continues to play regionally, write new music, and keep its collective foot pressed down on the gas pedal towards endless possibility.

STATIC-X Releases Official Video & First Single “HOLLOW”

Static-X Ols school 1

STATIC-X has released the first single “HOLLOW,” while announcing that their long Awaited, 7th Studio Album PROJECT REGENERATION will consist of more than 20 tracks, which will appear over 2 volumes, to be released separately, with Volume 1 releasing May 29th, 2020.

The track was premiered by Jose Mangin on Liquid Metal on Feb 6th, while the official video was premiered on Billboard and is available HERE and the album preordered online HERE. Visit https://static-X.com for exclusive merchandise and limited edition pre-order products.

StaticX Project Regeneration Cover

PROJECT REGENERATION Volume 1 out May 29, 2020.

PROJECT REGENERATION Volume 1 will feature 12 brand new STATIC-X tracks, containing many of the final vocal performances and musical compositions of Wayne Static, along with the original Wisconsin Death Trip lineup of bassist Tony Campos, drummer Ken Jay, and guitarist Koichi Fukuda.

Both volumes are being mixed by longtime STATIC-X producer Ulrich Wild.

“Today is a very exciting day, as we are finely releasing the first STATIC-X single and video in more than 10 years.” Says Tony Campos. “The band, our producers, and most importantly Wayne’s family are incredibly happy with the way that the album is turning out and we know that Wayne is looking down on us all with a big smile, as we begin sharing his final works with the world.”

“We have been working on allot of material over the last year and a half and while selecting the songs to move into the final mix phase, it became clear that there is just too much material and too little time for this to be a single album.” Says drummer Ken Jay.

“The last thing that we wanted to do was make the fans wait any longer.” Adds Tony Campos. “We also didn’t want to abandon the remaining material, because it is very close to being complete and we know that the fans are going to want to be able to hear and experience all of it. We also recognize that all of this music is part of the same body of work, which marks this very important chapter of STATIC-X, so it is only logical to release all of the music under the same banner, PROJECT REGENERATION.”

The vocals for the song HOLLOW were originally recorded in 2005 for the STATIC-X album Start A War, but Wayne and I never felt like the music on the original HOLLOW demo was fully realized”. Tony explains. “That is why it didn’t appear on Start A War or any STATIC-X album that followed. The vocals sounded great, but some of the musical compositions from that time period felt a bit experimental. The band was going through a lot of changes at that time and, in retrospect, it felt like we’d strayed away from that authentic STATIC-X sound that really defined us.”

Ken Jay adds, “When we began working on PROJECT REGENERATION our producers advised us to ignore any of the old demo music, so we opted for the original band to re-enter the studio with nothing more than Wayne’s isolated vocal tracks and to just be ourselves, to be STATIC-X, and to make Evil Disco. The vocals sound really great and I think that Wayne would be extremely happy with what we’ve done with the music and to know that these tracks have finally realized their full potential.”

In total, PROJECT REGENERATION Volume 1 & 2 will consist of more than 20 brand new / unreleased Static-X songs and will feature all of the remaining works left behind by Wayne Static, along with the original Wisconsin Death Trip band lineup. The individual albums are expected to contain creative packaging elements that will allow fans to marry the 2 volumes together.

“Right now we are finalizing the mixes for the first batch of songs, which will appear on Volume 1, while we continue to finish up the tracking for the rest of the music, which will appear on Volume 2. Volume 1 will be released at the end of May and the goal is to release Volume 2 as soon as possible.” says Ken Jay.

STATIC-X is including the names of all fans who pre order PROJECT REGENERATION Volume 1 in the liner notes of the album art.
The cut-off date for names to appear in the liner notes is March 1, 2020.

“This is a very unique album” adds Koichi Fukuda. “Usually when someone passes away and leaves unfinished material behind, the end result will still sound incomplete. That is not the case with this. We have really taken the necessary steps and committed the time and resources for this to become a legitimate Static-X album.”

2019 was absolutely incredible for STATIC-X. The whole 20th Anniversary touring process was a very unique and healing experience for the band, the fans, and also for Waynes family,” adds Tony. “Wayne’s family has been involved with every decision that we have made. They came out to see us on multiple shows last year and having there blessing and support was something that was essential throughout the process. We wouldn’t be doing any of this without their full support and consent.”

“We are so grateful to the fans who have made 2019 such an incredible year for STATIC-X,” adds Ken Jay. “We have toured the world and celebrated the life and work of our dear friend Wayne, while playing our platinum selling debut album front to back every night. The fans have really exceeded our expectations and again, we are just so grateful! We can’t wait to share all of this music with you!

It has been more than 20 years since Wisconsin Death Trip was released to the world and we are incredibly honored to be able to say that on May 29th, 2020, Wayne, Tony, Ken and Koichi will once again be releasing another STATIC-X album together.”

The band recently wrapped up a world tour comprised of nearly 100 primarily sold out dates in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their platinum selling debut album Wisconsin Death Trip. The shows also served as a traveling memorial for the bands late front-man Wayne Static who passed away in 2014.

STATIC-X has also announced a limited number of shows for 2020.

“‘Mothra’ came from a beat by DJ Swamp, the o.g. master of dark gothic hip hop. I had gotten a ticket that day and was pissed at the meter maid. I was able to channel my rage into an industrial trap vortex about lumbering through L.A. like a Godzilla villain! Ryan Lynch’s awesome guitar brought the track home and gave it that heavy metal touch.” – Justin Symbol

PHARMACOSE Releases Official Music Video for “Checked Out”

Checked Out

Jacksonville, FL Alternative Rock Band PHARMACOSE has released the official music video for their single, “Checked Out.” Originally premiered on PureGrainAudio with a full interview with front-man WES JONES, “Checked Out” was directed by Kurt St. Thomas.

Player

“Checked Out” has a more alternative leaning sound, and that just happened. Lu and I wrote it and recorded it in one session. I had a musical idea, and Lu took that and expanded on it. Things just came together organically. I had started to write the lyrics and I wasn’t sure where they were going. I was kind of stuck, so Lu and I began talking about how we were feeling around that time. I personally was still trying to get my medication regimen right, so I wasn’t feeling bad, but I wasn’t feeling very good either. I had isolated myself, mostly playing video games and training jiu jitsu. Lu used the phrase “checked out” while we were talking, and I jumped on that idea and finished writing the lyrics. It’s about escapism using digital media, be it through video games or social media, and avoiding the real world.” – Wes Jones

MITCHEL EVAN Releases New Single, “Las Cruces”

Las Cruces Single Cover Art

Richmond, VA Americana Singer / Songwriter MITCHEL EVAN has released his new single, “Las Cruces,” via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“Las Cruces was written as a response to a not-so-civil band break up. I fronted this band for a couple years called Mitchel Evan & The Mangrove based out of Colorado. Towards the end we had some pretty major creative and personal differences and there was a lot of resentment on both sides. I had just got out of a long term romantic relationship as well, so when the band broke up I started performing and touring solo for the first time. So the premise of Las Cruces is more or less a “F*ck you, I’m going on the road” sort of thing. It’s mostly angry but also confident, empowering and has a sense of freedom as well.” – Mitchel Evam

The video was shot in Fort Worth, Texas at the Bodega bar by longtime friend and videographer Dustin Dow and our new friend, Larry Hinson, whom we met on the ‘Defy The Sun Tour’ with Otherwise.

It Won t Last Art

“‘It Won’t Last’ is about the fleeting feelings of a hookup. You have this intense connection with someone for such a short time, but then in the morning, you realize it was just an intoxicating moment.

We wanted to keep the video simple and more performance based this time around. This song in particular is very guitar driven, and we wanted to be able to showcase Chuck and Kiefer ripping it up.” – Matt James

BLACK HEART SAINTS Releases Official Music Video For “Misery”!

 MG 1246 1

Austin Music Award-winning band BLACK HEART SAINTS has just released the fourth and final installment from their new Misery EP — a blistering Southern hard rock tune that masterfully melds the soulfulness of THE BLACK CROWES with the sheer heaviness of SOUNDGARDEN.

The music video for “Misery” takes a darker tone than the previous installments of the series, touching upon such topics as addiction and depression. All four music videos from the Misery EP were shown as part of a film premiere at Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX earlier this month, which featured a red carpet and a curated drink menu.

Black Heart Saints has continued to turn heads around the country, and will be featured as part of Sweetwater Studio’s Master Class program — a specialized recording class available to the public that recently hosted such names as ANTHRAX and ERIC JOHNSON.

“This song really captures what Black Heart Saints is about — heavy, soulful rock ‘n roll that pays homage to our Texas roots. ” – BLACK HEART SAINTS

premiere 1

Dangerous & dirty, with a distinct groove steeped in classic rock, yet with a modern intensity. Black Heart Saints gives fans exactly what they want – rock god vocals catapulted over explosive, memorable riffs – leaving legions of the rock ‘n’ roll faithful yearning for more.

After debuting at South by Southwest Festival, this powerhouse quartet has been building a solid reputation as a support act for national touring bands such as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The ConspiratorsSevendustSteel PantherPop EvilBuckcherryStryperDirty Honey, and more.

The soaring vocals of front-man Josh Ross have drawn comparisons to Myles Kennedy and Chris Cornell. While the band is influenced by the likes of Mötley CrüeGuns ‘N Roses, and other legendary Hard Rock acts, the commanding presence of Black Heart Saints’ live show brandishes an updated take on the genre.

Quickly conquering some of the biggest stages and festivals in the United States, Black Heart Saints has built an impressive resume, and has been recognized as one of the nation’s top emerging rock acts:

– 2019 Austin Music Awards Winner #1
– Music videos featured in over 5,000+ gyms across the US and Canada
– Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Headliner
– Austin Chronicle Music Awards: Top 10 Best New Bands
– San Antonio’s Fiesta Oyster Bake Headliner
– Official South By Southwest Festival Performer
– Buffalo Trace Battle of the Bands Grand Prize Winner
– ESPN X Games Performer

The band’s first full-length release – ALIVE – was soon followed by the Road to Sturgis Tour 2017, which put Black Heart Saints’ charismatic live performance to the test when the band took the stage at the world-renowned motorcycle rally, attended by over 500,000 bikers from all around the globe.

In 2018, Black Heart Saints embarked on an extensive tour to the West Coast beginning in January, which included a highlight performance at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood, California. On April 12th, 2018, Austin City Council and Mayor Steve Adler officially proclaimed April 12th to be “Black Heart Saints Day.”

After being tapped to open for Steel Panther, Slash, and Pop Evil throughout 2018 and 2019, Black Heart Saints has been dominating stages in their native Texas, with highlight performances at prestigious venues such as the House of Blues in Houston, Texas.

The band’s latest release, Misery EP, which features an accompanying film based on the band’s music, has received rave reviews:

“When I first heard opening track ‘Lines’ I knew Black Heart Saints were onto another winner. The song, which comes across like a heavier take on ‘Southern Harmony-era’ Black Crowes, is something special indeed and a great way to start this four track EP. Just to make sure you are sat up and paying attention then ‘Crazy’ muscles in, it’s a big-riffed stomper that smashes the door down making it another great opening to a Saints’ release.” – The Rock Pit (Australia)

“Take advantage of this now. Hit those local shows while you still can, grab that grainy IG video proof and a moment to meet & greet the guys before they’re selling out stadiums and you miss that opportunity.” – Kail Rose (dRiFFt)

WATCH ME BREATHE Release Official Lyric Video for “Cruel Machine”

CruelMachineCover

Santa Cruz, CA – Progressive Pop-Rock Band WATCH ME BREATHE has released the official lyric video for their new single, “Cruel Machine,” available NOW via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“This song is about capitalism. The inspiration came from the many experiences I (and most of us) have had encountering miserable, tired, old employees at grocery stores, gas stations, etc. Lifelong hourly-wage work is the story of millions and millions of people all over this country, and it’s hard not to feel like they are victims of a cruel machine they were forced to be a cog in.” – Jake Aaron Ward

Do you ever look around and think “something’s not right with all of this…”?

So does songwriter Jake Aaron Ward. Watch Me Breathe is his musical quest to answer his most burning questions and find meaning in a modern world that is often starved for it. Incorporating both musical styles and teachings from all over the world, Ward is an avid student of world history and culture. The music is the product of a relentless search for what lies at the very heart of the human experience.

With a unique blend of engaging rhythms, melancholy chords, and boyish tenor vocals, Watch Me Breathe will immediately register with any of us who went through an “emo” phase in years past. However, where one might normally find distorted guitars and lyrics about heartbreak and self-loathing, one instead finds African percussion samples, instruments from multiple continents, and lyrical references to things like Rumi poetry or Chomsky’s criticisms of capitalism. At once both intellectual and emotional, this band provides the soundtrack for seekers, deep thinkers, and adventurers everywhere.

Since their debut in early 2018, the band has racked up close to 200k plays on Spotify and recruited more than 4k followers. As their audience grows, the band has their sights on touring in 2020 and seeking bigger and better platforms to spread their message from.

Ward writes, plays, records and produces all of the music entirely by himself in his home studio. Bassist Ryan Green and drummer/baby brother Carl Ward step in for live performances and the occasional photo shoot or interview. The band has released two full-length albums to date (The Lighter Side Of Darkness in 2018, and The Strange Pull Of What You Really Love in 2019) and is set to release a third full-length sometime in 2020.

EMMA GARELL Releases New Single, “I Wanna See Blood”!

 I Wanna See Blood Cover

Richmond, VA based rock artist EMMA GARELL has released her newest single, “I Wanna See Blood.” Produced by Todd Wright of Halfking Studio in Northern, VA, “I Wanna See Blood” is available to download / stream via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“I Wanna See Blood is a song about love gone wrong, your basic break up song that ends in a bloody mess. Sometimes love lost just leaves you angry…not sad…not lonely…just bloody angry. Break up songs come in a variety of styles, but this is my anger and my response to a broken heart, I hope people can relate. My two previous songs (Destination Anaheim and unreleased Mojo Man ) were more about the rock world in general. It wasn’t until I started working with Todd Wright that I found a way to express my inner feelings through my music. ‘I Wanna See Blood’ is the first of the songs that we wrote together that delve into my heart and soul. ” – Emma Garell

“I Wanna See Blood is a dancey jam, alternative-rock track about heartbreak and revenge. For fans of Billie Eilish and Mohawks.” – Dylan Lawson (guitarist for Emma Garell)

ROCK’N THE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA MUSIC SCENE WITH CLASSIC BLUES METAL INSPIRED ORIGINALS.

Emma Garell grew up using her singing voice to speak for her. She lulls the listener into a sense of whispered magic, then out of nowhere, she belts with the power of the greats. Friends have called her Princess of Darkness and Roberta Plant…the truth lies somewhere in between as she takes these influences and finds her own sound. Having a wide range of vocal gifts, you won’t be surprised to hear a wide array of musical styling, all within the power of a haunting voice.

If Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs was a bar fly in a gritty bar, singing on a Saturday night, you might come close to Emma Garell. One could see her paying homage to the song “Black Velvet” in leather and then fist-pumping the crowd to her Black Sabbath roots. The woman has a smooth growl with a punk’tude and

“Destination Anaheim” is only the beginning.- H. Reavis

With the release of her debut single early 2019, “Destination Anaheim,” Emma Garell is stepping into the rock spotlight with the strength and confidence of her role models and a freshly honed vocal style. Fans can look forward to more singles and a full length album over the next year, as well as continuing to perform locally with the biggest bands coming through RVA.

Alternative Electronic Rock duo SHE MADE ME DO IT has released the official music video for their new single, “Love’s Demise.” which is taken from their upcoming EP, Scorched, due for February 3, 2020 release.

From the heavy riffs and kinetic new wave sensibility of “Love’s Demise” to their incredible take on The Cure’s “Three Imaginary Boys,” to the dark, dense, and heavy pounding of “Poison Aura,” this EP is a rollercoaster trip inside the band’s hook-laden psyche.

Player

“Love’s Demise is a song about change and loss within ourselves and out there in the world.

We had a great time making the video for it around London. Although we live here there are always unknown streets and urban alcoves to discover. We found a lot that sunny day and made use of our surroundings with the help of our intrepid director Duncan Catterall”. – SHE MADE ME DO IT

“‘Soul Sister Retribution’ is the song that changed my writing forever. I used to labor over pop sensibility but with this one, I decided to leave my heart directly on the paper. An outspoken stream of consciousness. It’s the sole reason for the stylistic evolution in my artistry and music. I wanted to be poetically liberated. To say things that have meaning. That run deep and are meant to inspire, empower and move; reflecting on a time in history but igniting hope that love and strength can heal and unite. It’s a conversation with young me, written for an older me about all my girls who may need to hear it.” – Rockie Brown

“I think the line, ‘ I’ll be the wounded bird and you can be the lion…depends on who wants to be the boss.’ is my favorite line in the song, it really sums up a big theme of the album, too– that anyone can get what they want in big-bad-hard love, some of us want power, and some of us want to give it away. ‘”
— Katie Burke

Player

“Basically, this album encompasses all the ways we distort and experience love, or how I have at least…

Its a lot of addiction, egoic superiority/inferiority tendencies, and just plain codependent shit. Its a ‘love’ album about not knowing how to get it right, but celebrating all the ugly/beautiful ways we get it wrong.” – Katie Burke

KB & The Idyllwilde is a soul-rock band based in Nashville, TN, led by high octane vocalist Katie Burke. Her lyrical content deals in the offbeat and the ugly; the extremes of love, sex, death and pain.

Sonically, the band draws influence from artists ranging from JanisJimi, and Zeppelin to Beth HartDMB, and Jack White.

The name ‘Idyllwilde’ is derived from its two root words ‘idyll’ meaning ‘story’, and ‘wild’ meaning anything goes. The two words come together in acknowledgement of the band’s mission: to make music without the limits of genre or content, honoring the idea that ‘anything goes’. To KB, every compelling story is worth telling no matter what it looks or sounds like.

Portugal based hard rock band YELLOW DOG CONSPIRACY has released the official lyric video to their new single “Reaching for the Stars”. Directed by Pedro Salvado it is the first track from their highly anticipated, upcoming second album “Liberation”.

Player

“We were so pleased with the end result of this first song that we didn’t want to wait and decided to release it straight away, rather than waiting to finish the rest of the entire album. It’s a song about how a romantic relationship break down can be the push that it is needed to find a new positive perspective in general and ultimately pave the way to find true happiness and a healthier approach to life and love. We can’t wait to start playing it live and seeing people’s reactions to the song.” – YELLOW DOG CONSPIRACY

“The chorus is very catchy with Vice’s high range vocals being showcased with the distinctive, non repetitive song structure and balanced by another brilliant guitar solo from Luiz.” – Joe Fortunato, mixer and producer

Reaching for the Stars” is the first single from their follow-up album to “Confrontation”, YDC’s debut album produced and mixed by Brad Cox and Mike Clink, legendary American producer of bands like Guns ’N’ Roses.
“Confrontation” is a guitar driven, all out hard rock album. It features eleven tracks, ranging from political and rebellious subjects like “Enough Is Enough” and “Revenge”, to more soft and inspiring songs like “We Need a Change” and “One to Blame”. Thrown into the mix are some catchy tunes like “Falling Into You” and “Don’t Lie to Me”, some fiery and vibrant themes like “Cocaine to the Vein” and “Break it Down”, a very groovy Rock ’n’ Roll tune “Somebody Else” and some melodic punked up songs like “Skinny Little Man” and “Hello my Friend”.

The thread that runs through the entire album and ties the songs together is confrontation in its different forms, be it with the government, with people or with ourselves and own ghosts and demons. It aims to be a solid, original album with a modern twist showcasing YDC’s personality.
“Confrontation is a great release that should appeal to fans of good 80’s Hard Rock, however fans of Modern Melodic Hard Rock should also give these guys a chance – Portugal definitely rocks hard.” Mick Parry, in Fireworks Magazine

DEVILSKIN Release Official Music Video for “Corrode”

DEVILSKIN PRESS SHOT 2019 NEW

The unstoppable DEVILSKIN unveil “CORRODE,” a monstrous new video, single and details of their long awaited fourth album.
The New Zealand four piece–who have toured with the likes of SlashHalestormMotley Crue, and Disturbed–have announced their new album, titled RED, which will be released worldwide Friday April 3 on all formats across all platforms.

Player

RED is the universal colour of passion, vitality, blood, danger, romance, anger, horror and love. Everything evocative. Of all the colours, RED is a warning and a statement.

“We wanted to reflect the diversity, strength and depth of the songs on the album with an undeniable declaration.” Says Devilskin bassist Paul Martin. “We are so very excited to share these songs, we are extremely proud of how far we have come and what we have achieved with this recording.”

The single “Corrode” encapsulates the red theme perfectly, its angsty lyrics tell of being completely overwhelmed and submerged in grime and stress. Fighting your way through it all and rising to ask for help. Directed by Alex Hargreaves (Alien Weaponry, Beastwars) filmed and edited by DOP Piotr Ziomus (Kwasnik Pictures) the video is powerful, confronting and evolves to show the bigger picture that we don’t always see in our own lives. Martin continues, “Perspective is so important, more-often-than-not, the difference between our happy places and our darkest spaces is just the angle we are looking from. This song is about the journey and the challenges you need to face when you feel lost. It’s saying it’s fine to ask for help.”

“We really took our time with RED, “Martin enthuses, “we had the vision and we knew it had to be done right. The songs each have so much life and we felt a real duty to do them justice. There are some really personal and very real moments on this album. We absolutely did not hold back, there are songs about struggle, depression, suicide and loss and there are songs about strength, hope, victory and love. We demoed almost 30 songs for this album so we had a lot of work to do to narrow the list down. One of last songs we wrote, it almost missed the cut too, but the throat punch we call Do You See Birds opens the album and sets the tone on a real rollercoaster of a ride. We felt it was especially important to give the listener a total immersive experience from start to finish. There’s lots of mood, colour and texture in the songs as well as between them. It’s a trip.”

The amazing response of the first two singles “Endo” and “All Fall Down” show the promise this album holds. Both songs receiving high rotate radio play and amassing serious numbers online.

From the epic moodiness of “Blood & Bone,” the caged rage of “Same Life,” the visceral impact of “The Victor,” to the poignant beauty of “Sweet Release,” the resplendent grandeur of “Bright Lights,” right through to the swagger of “Be Like The River” and the manic fury of “Everybody’s High But Me,” Devilskin have bared their soul with their finest performances yet.

The album will be released digitally on all the usual formats, physically via CD and LP and there will be a limited edition deluxe box set.

Devilskin is a four piece band from Hamilton New Zealand formed in June 2010, they already have guts, class, kudos and confidence. The sum total of a determined and accomplished group of musicians who know what they want, the music is organic, dynamic and real.

The band features the spectacular Jennie Skulander on lead vocals. Her powerful and compelling voice and alluring stage presence sets her apart from any vocalist New Zealand has put up so far. With an unerring gift for melody, Jennie’s incredible voice sweeps from whisper to roar, rips with power, drips with melody and captivates with sincerity.
Jennie previously fronted Rotorua band Slipping Tongue garnering a swathe of fans with their videos, EPs and album. Slipping Tongue also impressed many when they opened for Coheed & Cambria in 2008.

On lead guitar is Nail from popular Waikato band Chuganaut who won the NZ Battle of the Bands and the World Battle Of The Bands in 2004. Played BDO in 2005 and opened for Iron Maiden at Mt Smart stadium in 2009. Chuganaut has played numerous national tours and released several singles, EPs, videos and an album. Nail’s searing guitar work and high energy performance bring real intensity to the live show.

Playing bass guitar is Paul Martin, known as the Axeman from arguably, New Zealand’s most popular radio show, the Axe Attack. Lead guitarist and vocalist for World War Four, Paul’s previous bands include Knightshade and Blackjack. He has opened for Black Label Society (2006), Heaven & Hell (2007) and Motorhead twice (2008), and played BDO (2009). Paul’s powerful and aggressive bass style is a propulsive force in the bands sound.

Nic Martin joined Devilskin as drummer in August 2011 at the age of 15. Paul’s son, Nic is the youngest artist to ever play the BDO when he performed with World War Four in 2009 at the age of 13. Nic adds to the show with a real display of power and passion on the drums. With a fierce style all his own and the inexhaustible energy of youth, Nic’s truculent style and showmanship are fast becoming a talking point on the NZ live music scene. Not to mention making Devilskin one of the few bands featuring a father and son in their line-up.

Together, Devilskin have the ability to write songs that have depth and passion. They create a compelling and irresistible sound and perform a stunning, explosive, live show.

The art of song-writing is back.

Legendary Alt-Rock Front-Man Remembered in ‘Reintroducing Chuck Mosley: Life On and Off the Road, by Douglas Esper

Cropped Doug

On December 3rd 2019, ScoutMedia released Reintroducing Chuck Mosley: Life On and Off the Road, by Douglas Esper.

“For twenty years I was Chuck’s fan, band mate, cheerleader, unknowing drug mule, AA plus one, friend, and I tried to help him write his autobiography,” said Douglas Esper. “After he passed away November 9th 2017, I continued working on a book about the recording of Chuck’s solo record with producer Matt Wallace (Faith No MoreDeftonesThe Replacements), a behind the scenes look at the reunion shows Chuck performed with Faith No More in 2016, and the ups and downs of dealing with Chuck Mosley, warts and all.”

Chuck Mosley and Douglas Esper performed over 150 shows together, recorded under the Chuck Mosley name as well as the indie-pop moniker, Indoria, and they acted together in the short film, Like An Open Heart It Shines by David Collupy.

“Chuck battled so many demons, but he remained a kind-hearted soul who loved to make other people laugh until the end. Our tour wasn’t always pretty and we spent a lot of time bickering, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. We tried like hell to reintroduce Chuck Mosley to the world. This is our story from my point of view.”

Chuck Mosley spent time fronting Faith No More, Bad BrainsCementVUA, Indoria, and had just released a new album, Soul Pretender, with the band Primitive Race the week he passed away.

Douglas Esper appears in the upcoming found footage horror film, Dwellers, produced by Ellefson Films (David Ellefson of Megadeth). The film was written, directed, and stars Drew Fortier, who toured with Chuck Mosley and Douglas Esper in 2017 and is also directing Thanks … And Sorry, a documentary about the late singer/songwriter.

Reintroducing Chuck Mosley: Life On and Off the Road is available now via the publisher at ScoutMediaBooksMusic.com/Store and Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers.

Back

One hundred sixty shows, two rushed recording sessions, a reunion with an old band, and a Hail Mary shot at a comeback represent the tip of the iceberg of my twenty year journey with Chuck Mosley.

Chuck (Faith No More, Bad Brains, Cement) toured the globe as a vocalist, appeared on magazine covers, rubbed elbows with idols, and through it all he remained 100% convinced he didn’t deserve your praise. Yet, he desired acceptance more than almost anything else.

A self-proclaimed, “junkie and a liar,” Chuck shot himself in the foot, over and over, by shooting up elsewhere on his body. Meanwhile, I stumbled and fumbled and pushed and pulled and scraped and cried and begged and borrowed to earn him extra chances to prove himself. We loaded a van with a guitar, a conga, and an unfinished legacy hoping to reintroduce the world to Chuck Mosley.

Advance Praise for Reintroducing Chuck Mosley: Life On and Off the Road

“I’ve gotta hand it to Doug: this is not a hack job, the only way to address a topic like Chuck with any authenticity is to do the hard time, and he definitely did that. Not a pleasant story by any stretch, his gaze does not shy away from ugly truths, yet in spite of this he’s managed to put together a touching dedication to his subject. Well done.” BILL GOULD (Faith No More)

“Douglas Esper’s Reintroducing Chuck Mosley not only reintroduces the late former Faith No More singer but reimagines him and, in doing so, reimagines the whole concept of what a music memoir is. Esper’s riveting read dispenses with Mosley’s time in Faith No More in one page just twelve pages in. It is a bold and brave statement of intent. This man is much more than the band that made him famous, and the book paints a picture of the real Mosley that no conventional biography could. Reintroducing Chuck Mosley is part biography, part road trip, part redemption tale, part buddy chronicle but so much more than that. Published novelist Esper’s lively writing style makes the book sing like fine fiction, but with the bitter sting of truth. ADRIAN HARTE (Author of Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More)

Chuck Mosley: Life On and Off the Road is detailed, funny, heartbreaking, stranger than fiction and a must read for any fan of Chuck Mosley or Faith No More. It is a truly inspired piece of writing that serves as a great reminder to Chuck and his legacy. We are sure he would’ve been proud if not a little embarrassed…[ha ha].” JIM BROWN (FaithNoMoreFollowers)

A few words on Chuck Mosley:

“I was blown away by his voice. So original. Chuck has a great style that you can tell it’s him as soon as he starts singing. I’m a big fan and I was honored when he asked me to appear on his new stuff.” JONATHAN DAVIS (Korn)

“Some of Chuck’s and Faith No More’s songs sound like we all come from the same family! He tore shit up!!!!” Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels (RUN DMC)

“I was always a fan of his … He wore his heart on his sleeve … I thought he was pretty fearless to sing about some of the things he sang about.” MATT WALLACE, Producer (Faith No More, Maroon 5, The Replacements)

“Chuck Mosley was a huge part of what made Faith No More’s first two albums so classic, groundbreaking, and cutting edge. It has been argued that Chuck single-handedly created rap-rock with the release of the timeless anthem, ‘We Care a Lot.’ I would not disagree with this bold claim.” – GREG PRATO, author (The Faith No More & Mr. Bungle Companion)

Formed in 2010, Gemini Syndrome spent their formative days performing on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. As their reputation within the L.A. hard rock scene grew, so did their audience. Their 2013 full-length debut, Lux, landed at #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and yielded the singles “Pleasure & Pain,” “Basement,” and “Stardust.” The record’s release saw the Los Angeles heavy alternative band tour alongside everybody from Five Finger Death Punch to Sevendust, and perform at festivals such as Rock on the RangeWelcome to Rockville, and more. After coming off the road in late 2014, Gemini Syndrome’s creative core, vocalist Aaron Nordstrom, drummer Brian Steele Medina, and bass player Alessandro “AP” Paveri released their 2016 second full-length, Memento Mori, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and spawned the hit single “Remember We Die,” which hit #1 on SiriusXM Octane. The band spent the majority of 2016 and 2017 on the road with bands such as In This MomentMotionless In WhiteAvatar, and Starset before taking time away from the road to write and record their 3rd full length album.

Seattle based Rock Band has released the official music video for “Super Knife.” Directed by Lance Hofstad, and originally premiered on Northwest Music Scene, “Super Knife” is off of their newest LP, Come Back, which is out now via Bandcamp.

Don wrote “Super Knife” after a close friend survived a severe injury: “This song is a series of flashback memories of this friend, while the chorus/outro are more a meditation on human frailty, friendship and loneliness. I feel like the longing in this song translates across the entire album.” – SUITCASE

Player

“With a simply beautiful melody that gently says “take all the time that you need” it ends with the meditative question “are we wandering alone down a western road?” repeated with lush harmonies. It makes you hope that at least we’ll have this tune with us if we are.” – Seattle Music Insider

More than just a band, the Seattle-based rock ‘n’ roll group, Suitcase, is at the center of a musical family. Born of musical companionship and often found in the comfy confines of the historic Earwig Studio in the city’s Wallingford neighborhood, the group’s steady momentum is fueled by the energy it’s provided by fans, friends and kinfolk alike. Earwig, which has been home to many an act looking to cut a standout record, buoys the group as a home base, the center of a network of support and song.

Suitcase, which released its breakout record, Lisabuela, in 2001, subsequently performed two coveted sessions on the famed radio station, KEXP, playing the Audioasis show with KEXP mainstay host, DJ John Richards, along with a one-hour set on The Live Room. The band also caught the attention of R.E.M. guitarist, Peter Buck, who praised the “really good” group in an interview with The Big Takeover (issue #43), saying, “Geez, I haven’t seen a band that was unheralded in a long time that I liked.”

In 2017, the group re-formed after an invitation to play the popular Emerald City music festival, Upstream. Original co-founders Don Farwell (owner of Earwig) and Ed Otto added Clint Hoyler on bass and Joe Patterson on drums. Together, they recorded a new record, Come Back. Full of introspective lyrics and honeycomb hooks, the album is set for a 2019 vinyl release. After playing prominent Emerald City stages like the Crocodile and the Tractor in the 90s and early 2000s, the band is back for more. Why? Because family is forever.
