Premiere: Pittsburgh Native SONNY BOY Releases Debut Single “The Homecoming”

Pittsburgh, PA based pop-rock singer-songwriter Sonny Boy has just dropped his debut single “The Homecoming“. The song rocks like The 1975 and features a great video, which you can watch below:

The video was a blast to film. It was filmed “run and gun” style, partially in my childhood hometown and due to the nature of it, we garnered a lot of curious stares and a lot of positive reactions. A lot of passers by even agreed to be in the video.” says Sonny Boy, who keeps his own name off of all promotional materials. You see, Sonny Boy is hoping you can’t tell how nervous he is. After too many years of trying to seem cool, he’s decided it’s not for him, and is embracing the idea of making music of a much more sincere and personal nature. His inaugural album “The Homecoming” is just that; Effectively serving as a concept album of his life and experiences so far. Being arguably more therapeutic than it is exhibitory “The Homecoming” serves as not only an example of music as entertainment, but also as a means of survival. Characterized by playful melodies, pounding drums and introspective lyrics, Sonny Boy attempts to capture in his music the beautifully awkward and tragically humorous process of living; Coping with the past and fearing the future, all the while hoping it’ll all turn out okay.

Mixus Brothers of Pittsburgh looking to make a mark

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Made up of Jebbh (guitar,vocals) and Red (drums, vocals), The Mixus Brothers out of Pittsburgh, PA have been self-producing music for the masses since they met in 2011.  After circuitous routes through cities such as Chicago, IL and Portland, OR – as well as many others – the Brothers’ lives intersected at beautiful Frick Park one fall day and they have been making their unique brand of Americana ever since.

With their critically acclaimed debut album “Westward the Tide” in 2012, a confident style began to take shape which ushered in 4 further releases over the course of the next 5 years.  With each new release, they have honed their craft and discovered more about themselves and the joys of making and performing music.

As Winter turns into Spring the new-year brings The Mixus Brothers 7th collection called “The Lonesome Gods”. Their most accomplished and convincing album to date. It will be released in 3 Volumes consisting of 4 songs each.  Exploring themes of nature, relationships and life, the singer-songwriters combine their typical foot stomping tunes with expanded deeper sound creations.

Typically a duo, The Mixus Brothers are lucky enough to be joined for live performances by fellow musicians and family members who help round out their sound and presentation. 

156/SILENCE: Pittsburgh Metalcore Outfit Announce New Album + Premiere New Video Via Metal Injection

Pittsburgh metal/hardcore punishers 156/SILENCE are proud to announce the release of their impending sophomore album Irrational Pull, due out June 5 via self-release.

Formed in 2015 in the heart of the Steel City, the Pennsylvanian quartet produces a different type of molten metal — unadulterated metallic hardcore in the vein of Norma JeanDaughters and Poison the Well. Fronted by Jack Murray, the band embarks on their second album with the dynamic vocalist, who displays more dissonant and emotional feel than predecessors. 

Produced and recorded by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Full of HellGatecreeper), Irrational Pull sees the band embracing their metallic side full-force and with fists swinging. No longer attached to Innerstrength Records, the band is looking to make waves this year independent of any label.

156/SILENCE had plans to hit the road with death metal unit Katabasis for a six-city tour along the East Coast, but the COVID-19 pandemic put an end to that idea. Instead, the band plans to record a series of live sessions that will be distributed throughout the summer.

Irrational Pull is the culmination of everything this band has done since 2015,” says guitarist Jimmy Howell. “We’ve incorporated themes and tones throughout our entire catalog and created what we believe to be our most cohesive work yet.”

FFO: Code Orange, Knocked Loose, Vein, Norma Jean

156/SILENCE is:

Jack Murray – vocals
Jimmy Howell – guitar
Ryan Wilkison – guitar
Kyle O’Connell – bass
Max Bradshaw – drums

CODE ORANGE SHARE NEW SONG “SULFUR SURROUNDING”/ Record Release Party at The Roxian on Saturday

GRAMMY nominated band Code Orange have shared “Sulfur Surrounding,” the third new track to be released off their forthcoming album, UNDERNEATHdue out Friday, March 13th [Album Art / Tracklist Below]. “Sulfur Surrounding” is available today on all streaming platforms with an animated music video created by Code Orange’s own Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose streaming on the band’s YouTube channel. “Sulfur Surrounding” is a cinematic dirge that finds the band’s Reba Meyers and Jami Morgan trading off corrosive vocals with a mournful address to those buried by insecurities and lost in an endless cycle of objectification.

Morgan explains, “’Sulfur Surrounding’ is about your deepest relationships becoming manipulative, corrosive and eventually hopeless. Haunted by chemical compulsion. Fading into the depressive cycle. Another step on our journey under. The song showcases another stylistic dip on the rollercoaster that is UNDERNEATH. Soon all will become clear.”

UNDERNEATH is led byearly singles “Swallowing The Rabbit Whole” and “Underneath,” with the album already receiving immense critical praise. The UK’s Metal Hammer gave UNDERNEATH the magazine’s first perfect 10 out of 10 album review score in 5 years, hailing the LP as, “the first classic record of the decade.” Kerrang! awarded UNDERNEATH a flawless 5K review declaring the album, “one of the most powerful, cathartic, creatively satisfying and bruisingly heavy records of its age.” “’Underneath’ hulks out from oil-slick-black electronics and menacing synths, peeling under the skin to uncage Code Orange’s next evolution,” avowed NPR with Stereogum adding, “It pushes the band’s sound into something even bigger.” Rolling Stone praised Code Orange’s, “cutting melodies and the group’s balance of industrial rattle and shock-treatment guitar riffs,” while Revolver detailed the new music as “a whole other beast, and a monstrous one at that: hungry, pissed and unstoppable.”

UNDERNEATH is available for pre-order with bundles and four limited edition vinyl colorways, each featuring a gatefold jacket with a lenticular cover, also available. Produced by Morgan and Nick Raskulinecz with co-producer Will Yip, UNDERNEATH features additional programming from Chris Vrenna, and was mixed by Yip and Code Orange’s own Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose.

Comprised of Jami Morgan (Drums / Vocals), Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose (Electronics / Guitar / Vocals), Reba Meyers (Guitar / Vocals), Dominic Landolina (Guitar) and Joe Goldman (Bass), Code Orange will make their live return on March 14th with a hometown record release show in Pittsburgh, PA, before heading out on The UNDERNEATHTHESKIN­_TOUR with special guests Show Me The Body, Jesus Piece, Year Of The Knife, and Machine Girl. That headline tour is set to get underway March 30th in Boston, MA and is routed through Code Orange’s April 10th + 17th performances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival [Itinerary Below]. Immediately following the spring tour, Code Orange will head out on Slipknot’s KNOTFEST ROADSHOW 2020North American tour, which begins May 30th in Syracuse, NY. For tickets and more information on Code Orange’s upcoming tour dates, visit www.CodeOrangeTOTH.com

In 2017, Code Orange flipped the heavy music world on its head with their breakthrough album FOREVER, a collection that masterfully mixed hardcore aggression with urgent industrial textures, earning the band a breakthrough GRAMMY nomination and top placement on several “Best of 2017” lists including: Rolling Stone’s “20 Best Metal Albums of 2017,” Revolver’s “20 Best Albums of 2017,” and The Independent’s “Top 20 Rock & Metal Albums of 2017.”

This past summer, Code Orange made headlines in the professional wrestling world with the  release of “Let Me In,” their official entrance theme for WWE Superstar ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt. Code Orange previously featured at WWE’s NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III performing a rendition of wrestler Aleister Black’s entrance theme alongside Incendiary’s Brendan Garrone.  “Let Me In” followed Code Orange’s 2018 release of THE HURT WILL GO ON, a digital EP featuring “3 Knives” and “The Hunt” Feat. Corey Taylor, as well as “The Hurt Will Go On” (Shade Remix), an official remix of Code Orange’s “Hurt Goes On” helmed by the band’s guitarist and vocalist Shade. More recently the Code Orange has collaborated with a wide array of artists, co-producing Injury Reserve’s “HPNGC” Feat. JPEGMAFIA, as well as serving up a pair of remixes for alt-J’s “Hit Me Like That Snare” and “Adeline.”

Their platinum-selling record, Through The Fire And Flames, brought them international acclaim and was featured as the most-challenging song on Guitar Hero III. Their energetic and humorous live performances have won them fans on every continent. The group is known for their long, complex, and fast guitar solos performed by Herman Li and Sam Totman, who founded the band after meeting through a classified ad in 1999. Since then, the band has released seven studio albums, including Valley Of The Damned (2003), Sonic Firestorm (2004), Inhuman Rampage (2006), Ultra Beatdown (2008), The Power Within (2012), Maximum Overload (2014), and Reaching Into Infinity (2017). 2019 ushered in the next chapter in DRAGONFORCE history with Extreme Power Metal. Regarding Extreme Power Metal, Li says, “This album again combines the best of DRAGONFORCE in an even bigger, more epic way than we have ever done before.” The keyboards of the album were performed by Coen Janssen of symphonic metal titan Epica, adding a new dimension to the album. Notes Totman, “We worked really closely with Coen on this new album. We are so happy with what he has brought into this album.” Drawing from a wide range of influences, the band’s sound combines the sing-a-long choruses of classic ’80s rock with triumphant, uplifting melodies and fantasy-themed power-metal-inspired lyrics. As a nod to their passion for all things video-game related, the band frequently incorporates retro game sounds and melodies into their recordings and live shows.To preview and purchase Extreme Power Metal visit metalblade.com/dragonforce.

King Buzzo’s New Album, Gift of Sacrifice, Arrives on May 15; Tour Announced including Pittsburgh

Photo credit: Mackie Osborne

King Buzzo, the iconic Melvins’ singer and guitar player, returns with his second solo album, Gift of Sacrifice, on May 15 via Ipecac Recordings. The nine-song release finds Buzz Osborne joined by longtime friend and Mr. Bungle bass player Trevor Dunn.

The collection’s first single, “Science in Modern America” (http://smarturl.it/kingbuzzo) can be heard now. Album pre-orders, available as the same link, include CD, black vinyl, a limited edition hot pink variant available exclusively via the Ipecac webstore as well as a tour only, opaque tangerine vinyl version.

Gift of Sacrifice was a stone groove to record and it will be a f**king blast to finally hit the road with my buddy Trevor Dunn,” says Osborne. “Once we take the stage, I guarantee we’ll kick the crap out of this album.” Dunn and Osborne have worked together several times in the past, both as members of Fantômas and with Dunn performing in the Melvins Lite iteration of the long-running, legendary band.

Osborne released his solo debut, This Machine Kills Artists, in 2014. Consequence of Sound said the album is “the negative bizarre Dylan Goes Electric,” adding “”Osborne’s jump across the electric/acoustic tracks succeeds much the way Dylan’s did: by keeping the strengths while adjusting the settings.” Pitchfork succinctly dubbed the collection “a refreshing breath of unplugged f**k-it-all folk.”

Gift of Sacrifice’s arrival will be met with an eight-week North American tour, seeing Osborne & Dunn traversing the continent with a May 13 launch in Palm Springs, Calif.

Experimental Rock Jazz Artist Horse Lords Plays Pittsburgh on 3/17 @ Collision

https://www.facebook.com/events/847382632342520/

Horse Lords make music for the liberation of mind and body. Propulsive in a way that inspires movement and that’s felt in the gut, the Baltimore quartet’s new album The Common Task points to a utopian, modernist ideal. The group’s use of algorithmic composition techniques, microtonal harmonies, and plentifully deployed polyrhythm aren’t secondary to the music’s danceability and rhapsodic swirl, but integral to the party itself.

The Common Task is both the most cohesive and farthest-reaching record Horse Lords has released. A mystifying density of ideas collide at each moment, recalling as diverse a cohort as The Ex and Glenn Branca to raucous Saharan guitar music, Albert Ayler, and James Tenney. It integrates experiments that gestated in the group’s cassette-only mixtape series, which saw the band stretching out on extended compositions and more expansive sonic parameters as well as presenting more explicitly political material, while retaining the immediacy of their long players. As evidenced by the album’s title, as well as songs like “Fanfare for Effective Freedom” and “People’s Park,” the band’s penchant for radical politics is especially accentuated on this release. Embedded in the exuberant interplay of guitar and sax, the persistent pulse of bass and drums, are notions of egalitarianism and the subversion of established norms. 

“Fanfare for Effective Freedom” augments its slippery 5/8 groove with keyboard runs that seem pried from a Terry Riley album, an apt reference for musicians interested in ecstatic release and sonic emancipation. “Integral Accident,” an 18-minute piece that occupies the album’s entire b-side that features the first sung vocals on a Horse Lords album, was originally composed for a program focused on the concept of “revolution.” Even more than 2016’s Interventions, now a classic of the underground and praised by the New York Times as “live, shivering with energy,” electronic elements have been fully enmeshed into the band’s template, from synthetic treatment of bagpipes on “The Radiant City” to the dub and reggaeton-inspired drum edits and synth pulses of “People’s Park.” 

Horse Lords are the Pied Piper of experimental music and radical thought. Their music is unabashedly fun, and experiencing it in a live context is an experience of collective ecstasy, each body moving to its own notion of what the beat may be. That shared experience, the joy of unified flow and motion, allows the ideas typically understood as “difficult” to be more easily absorbed. By using musical forms that point towards new ways of being, thinking, and organizing, by constantly re-evaluating assumptions and compositional systems, Horse Lords provide a model for society at large. By showing just how joyous it can be to imagine new futures and possibilities, by making us dance and howl with each tectonic shift, they show how dazzling the path towards utopia could be.

THE DARKNESS Easter Is Canceled Tour 5/15 @Rex Theater

THE DARKNESS KICKS OFF NORTH AMERICAN LEG OF THEIR EASTER IS CANCELLEDHEADLINING WORLD TOUR ON APRIL13th

Band Will Play New Album “Easter Is Cancelled” In Full Followed By Set of All The Hits and More 

Multi-platinum selling UK rock band THE DARKNESS – frontman Justin Hawkins, guitarist Dan Hawkins, bassist Frankie Poullain and drummer Rufus Taylor – released Easter Is Cancelled, their first-ever concept album, in October via Cooking Vinyl. The band will spread their Easter Is Cancelled message across North America on their headlining Easter Is Cancelled Tour kicking off on April 13th in Edmonton, Alberta at Union Hall and wrapping on May 23rd in Chicago at Park West. The Darkness will play Easter Is Cancelled in full, followed by a set of their greatest hits and fan favorites. The shows promise to reflect the grand scope and vision of the new album alongside the band’s spectacular canon. Tickets are on sale HERE. Justin Hawkins shares, “North America! We come to you again, humble in our mission but resolute in our purpose. Join with us in the benediction of ROCK, as we bring our Easter is Cancelled World Tour to your spume-flecked shores. We canceled Easter and now we are going to cancel your souls – let’s reboot together in the epiphany that only 150% pure adrenalin can bring. You are me, I am you, and music is the river that will carry us to our destiny. P.S. concert tickets available at extremely reasonable prices from all usual outlets.”Easter Is Cancelled became The Darkness’ fourth Top 10 Album in the UK, it topped the iTunes Rock Chart, debuted at #4 on the Billboard Current Hard Rock chart and #39 on the Billboard Top Current Albums chart, and has garnered wide critical acclaim. Kerrang! declares, “For those who like their rock adventurous, Easter may be canceled, but Christmas has come early.” Classic Rock Magazine raves, “Every track here is whip-smart and shout-it-out hooky.“ The Telegraph calls it “A record of ballsy energetic rock,” Clash Magazine gushes it’s “A lavish, complex, ambitious record,” and The Music announces, “Easter Is Cancelled is a high energy salute to everything rock.” Metal Insider effuses, “From first listen, you’re hoisted into sing-along power-pop melodies and foot-stomping rock riffs that easily suck you in. You can feel these songs in your soul and they feel good.” Smells Like Infinite Sadness praises, “Rock and Roll will never die as long as The Darkness are standing. They are the heroes we need, yet don’t deserve. Easter is Cancelled is a welcome reminder of their peerless musical powers.” Easter Is Cancelled is a mini-rock opera examining the role of the musician in the barbarous culture of the world today. At the core of the tale is love, loss and heartbreak, where redemption is ultimately found in the brotherhood of band friendship and the power of the guitar. The album boasts new single and the video for “In Another Life” that portrays Justin Hawkins banished to hell only to be redeemed by the power of rock pulsating through his guardian angel bandmates and a beautiful archangel. “Rock And Roll Deserves To Die” sees the band hailing the death of rock and roll in an epic five-minute masterpiece featuring monumental riffs, thunderous bass and almighty drums, “Heart Explodes” is a rock aria that finds The Darkness baring all in a multitude of emotions reflecting the hardships, struggles and changing relationships of life. “How Can I Lose Your Love” is a huge rock anthem steeped in emotion, featuring space-age synths, a gigantic chorus with beautiful hands-in-the-air moments, and almighty guitar solos, while title track “Easter Is Cancelled” encapsulates the explosive majesty of the record. Easter Is Cancelled Tour – North American Dates:4/13    Edmonton, AB @Union Hall4/14    Calgary, AB @The Palace Theater4/15    Vancouver, BC @Vogue Theatre4/17    Portland, OR @Wonder Ballroom4/18    Seattle, WA @Showbox4/21    San Francisco, CA @The Regency Ballroom4/22    Los Angeles, CA @The Novo4/24    San Diego, CA @The Observatory – North Park4/25    Tempe, AZ @Marquee Theatre4/28    Houston, TX @The Studio at Warehouse Live4/29    Dallas, TX @Granada Theater5/1      Concord, SC @Epicenter Festival*5/2      Atlanta, GA @Shaky Knees Festival*5/3      Birmingham, AL @Saturn5/5      Nashville, TN @Cannery Ballroom5/6      New Orleans, LA @Republic 5/8      Fort Lauderdale, FL @Culture Room5/9      Daytona Beach, FL @Welcome To Rockville*5/11    Boston, MA @Royale5/12    Philadelphia, PA @Union Transfer5/13    New York, NY @Webster Hall5/15    Pittsburgh, PA @Rex Theater5/16    Columbus, OH @Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival*5/17    Detroit, MI @Majestic Theatre5/19    Minneapolis, MN @Skyway Theatre5/20    Kansas City, MO @Truman5/22    St. Louis, MO @The Ready Room5/23    Chicago, IL @Park West*Festival dates, not headlining showshttp://www.thedarknesslive.com/

REVIEW: The Nothing Happens Tour at Mr. Smalls Theatre

Words and photos: Abigail McNatt

Following the release of their debut album, Nothing Happens in 2019, Wallows hit the road to celebrate their album’s success. On February 26th, the tour came to Mr. Smalls Theatre, just on the outskirts of Pittsburgh. As an opener, they brought along Penelope Isles from the UK. 
Penelope Isles could be described as Indie pop, but with a more mellow and chill vibe thrown in. For an opener, I noticed a lot of people in the audience singing along to every word. That’s not something you see too often with opening bands. The audience was singing along as well as jamming as Penelope Isles incorporated their jam sequences to their songs which were a lot of fun and entertaining to watch! I really loved seeing Lily Wolter, the lead vocalist, and the energy and passion she put into her craft. Isles was the perfect opening act to bring in the crowd for the headliner.
Wallows came on about a half-hour later. The show was completely sold out and the venue was packed. The crowd went wild as soon as frontman, Dylan Minnette, came out on stage. They started with “Do Not Wait”, the closing song on their album, Nothing Happens. Throughout their set, they played a multitude of songs from the album such as “Scrawny”, “I’m Full”, and “Sidelines”. For a chill indie band, they really bring the heat to their performances. They have a sound that is smooth but also high energy. I noticed during one of their more high energy ones, a few people tried to crowd surf.. which did not last long. As I made my way through the crowd, I saw the awe in the audience member’s eyes as they all sang along to every word. Another one of their popular songs, which made the setlist, was “Sun Tan“, which has extreme summer vibes all throughout, which was a breath of fresh air with all the rain and low temperatures outside. They ended the night with an encore of their most popular songs, both off of the new album; “Treacherous Doctor” and “Are You Bored Yet?”. In “Are You Bored Yet?”, there is a feature from Clairo, which the audience sang in full, and the band just listened. Such a cool moment. They ended the night with a bang, surely leaving the crowd completely satisfied and already yearning for another show. 
I’d never seen Wallows but I highly enjoyed their performance. They were extremely fun to watch on stage and they really enjoy what they do and the music they play. 
Catch them on one of the remaining dates of the Nothing Happens Tour this year.

Columbus, OH’s Caamp is playing Mr. Smalls on Friday, March 27th

Caamp had quite a HUGE year and they do not plan on slowing down any time soon. The band recently joined the Mom + Pop Music familyto release their long awaited full length record By and By. In week one of their release, By and By entered the Billboard Top 200, was the #1 Heatseeker#1 on the New Artist Alternative Albums, made top 5 vinyl album sales for the week and entered the Alternative and Emerging Artist charts. They even collaborated with Huckberry on a clothing collection. Plus, their shows have been selling out like crazy. Something major is happening with them, all with having done almost no press at all to date. 
Caamp’s genuine connection with their fans and dedication to their home state of Ohio has created a strong foundation. They have been steadily rising on the global scene with sold out shows and major festival appearances across North America and Europe (Firefly, Forecastle, Outside Lands, Austin City Limits, Great Escape, etc…).

ZZ Ward coming to Mr Smalls Theatre 3/17

ZZ Ward says of her new record Break Her Heart, “These new songs got me through some very personal and challenging situations in my life by allowing me to reach a place of empowerment. At first, these experiences of heartbreak, betrayal and devastation felt very close to me, only to realize in retrospect that the root of these emotions went much deeper than I originally understood. Whether it was an ex-lover that I never felt good enough for or knowing I had to find the giant inside of myself to overcome feelings of self-doubt, writing these songs helped me get to a place of acceptance. Some of the deeper themes throughout these songs are questioning social and gender norms and how those unwritten and traditional expectations have affected and continue to affect me in my own life”.

Petrol Girls Headlining Pittsburgh 3/28 at The Government Center

Petrol Girls released their critically acclaimed LP Cut & Stitch last year to love from NPR – who premiered it with a First Listen and noted “These are songs that rip through time, across borders and into psyches with feminist post-hardcore that engages as it rampages” – and The New York Times who called single “Big Mouth” “a paean to speaking up and breaking out.” To accompany the new album, lead-singer Ren Aldridge wrote a book that expands on the idea behind Cut & Stitch and was released via Rough Trade.  Ren previously contributed an essay about sexual violence in the punk community for 404ink’s Nasty Women, and she contributed illustrations to a new documentary titled So, Which Band Does Your Boyfriend Play In of which she was an inspiration for. The band is also in a mini-documentary about using sweat-shop free shirts to print their merch, more HERE. Since releasing the album, Petrol Girls has toured UK/EU with Thrice, Refused, La Dispute, War on Women and more.

…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Headlining Pittsburgh 4/26 | New LP Out Now

…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead will resume their North American headline tour in support of their critically acclaimed new LP X: The Godless Void and Other Stories on April 21st in Quebec City. The spring run has Trail of Dead hitting New York City, DC, Boston, Atlanta, Chicago and more for the first time since the album was released on January 17th via Dine Alone Records. Tickets for all April and May shows will be on sale Friday, February 14th.

X: The Godless Void and Other Stories is the band’s 10th album, first new full-length studio release in six years and ushers in the band’s 25th year anniversary. The album has been met with raves from the press. Pitchfork called the LP, “…a true revelation from a band 25 years into the game…” and the Austin American Statesman added that The Godless Void is “…their catchiest and most tuneful in forever, an obvious highlight of their now-25-year career.” PREMIERGuitar gave the album a Spotlight Review, writing “Godless Void combines post-punk angst and remarkable musicality akin to T.o.D’s own influences, Rush and Sonic Youth, and matches it with spirited urgency” and Kerrang! a 4/5 rating, saying, “Texas alt-rock legends …Trail Of Dead return, as spiky and brilliant as ever.”

…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’s spring North American tour follows an extensive EU/UK trek that kicked off this week in Paris France and ends in London on March 11th. The overseas dates come on the heels of a sold-out North American run that started in Austin on January 14th, headed to Los Angeles for a release day show at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery before heading North.

Bear Hands March 6th at The Club at Stage AE

Bear Hands spent the last year opening for twenty one pilots, Foals, and X Ambassadors, and on March 6 will headline The Club at Stage AE.

Bear Hands recently released their fourth studio album Fake Tunes, which the New York Times describe as “metronomic electro-pop.” Written and recorded in the plastic warmth of Los Angeles, Fake Tunes marks an evolution for the band, whilst drawing upon newly formed collaborative relationships with producer Christopher Chu of POP ETC and outsider artist Ursula Rose.

Bear Hands, comprised of vocalist Dylan Rau, bassist Val Loper, and drummer TJ Orscher,  recently released their fourth studio album Fake Tunes, a deep dive into a twisted modern era, paranoid yet hopeful, celebrity obsessed and introspective, and an unmistakable sign of troubled times. Written and recorded in the plastic warmth of Los Angeles, Fake Tunes marks an evolution for the band, whilst drawing upon newly formed collaborative relationships with producer Christopher Chu of POP ETC and outsider artist Ursula Rose. Their most auspicious release to date, Fake Tunes is available for purchase on all formats here.

From the “metronomic electro-pop” (New York Times) of album opener “Blue Lips (feat. Ursula Rose),” a song about listening to someone’s problems over and over until it drains you completely, to the dreamy lilt of “Clean Up California,” a song about finding salvation (or not) across state lines, Fake Tunes traces the anxiety of life and love in America today. The album’s 11 tracks veer from the meaty, rhythmic indie anthems the band cut its teeth on to digitally-infused numbers that swerve across stylistic lanes. The result is a fitting statement of what a band can be—and the expectations it can defy. “It feels like this record is grateful,” Loper says. “We feel lucky to be here, to have the chance to keep making music together. It feels lighter. The songs are shorter, they’re pretty poppy, and they’re to the point. And that’s where our music is most impactful.”

Bear Hands was formed in Connecticut and soon after moved to NYC to test their chemistry on stage. The band would go on to release its acclaimed debut LP, Burning Bush Supper Club, in 2010, riding steady hype to 2014’s showstopper Distraction. Radio soon caught on, earning the band major chart success with singles “Giants” and “Agora,” alongside a late night TV debut on Conan. The group quickly earned a reputation as a visceral live act, touring with the likes of Passion Pit, Killer Mike, and Cage the Elephant, and landing on festival bills from Coachella to Reading & Leeds. This year, the band has toured alongside Foals, Walk the Moon, and twenty one pilots.

RASCAL FLATTS
FAREWELL TOUR

SPECIAL GUESTS CHASE RICE AND AVENUE BEAT
SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 2020

BURGETTSTOWN, PA

TICKETS ON SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC THIS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST AT 10AM VIA LIVENATION.COM

An unforgettable chapter in country music history will be celebrated this year, as Rascal Flatts – the most awarded group of the genre’s last decade – is hitting the road for the RASCAL FLATTS FAREWELL: LIFE IS A HIGHWAY TOUR. With countless milestones behind them and their legacy firmly established as some of country’s brightest ambassadors, Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney visited CBS This Morning today to exclusively announce that they will mark their 20th anniversary this year with a triumphant farewell tour. 
 “When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter,” said Gary LeVox. “The greatest feeling ever, is being told that our music has been the soundtrack to their lives. What greater gift can an artist receive than to be told ‘I got married to “Bless The Broken Road,”’ or ‘We played “My Wish” at my graduation.’ That ‘“What Hurts The Most” is the song that made me love country music for the first time,’ or ‘“I’m Movin’ On” helped me get sober’ or even that ‘“Changed” made me call my family again after not talking to them for years.’ That’s why we create music and the reason we can’t wait to celebrate this incredible 20 year journey all year, with our fans who we love dearly. I don’t know what God has in store for the future, but I am excited to see what He has planned!”  “We’re really looking forward to getting to spend this entire year loving on our fans, and thanking them for allowing us to have the most amazing career over the last 20 years,” shared Jay DeMarcus. “While it is of course bittersweet, it is so important to us to celebrate what our music has meant to their lives, as well as what the fans have meant to us. There is no sadness here, just new chapters, new journeys, and new beginnings. Rascal Flatts’ music will live on forever, because of our fans, and this year is all about them!” “Dreams do come true…and we are three walking examples of this truth,” said Joe Don Rooney. “I’m most proud of the fact that we’ve pursued our dreams together and with courage, hard-work and dedication we’ve been able to cultivate our dreams into reality; it’s simply incredible! There’s no doubt we have been blessed way beyond belief and we can’t wait to spend the rest of 2020 expressing our love and appreciation to all of our devoted fans, music industry friends and our families for believing in us and playing a major role in our path to here. And, I personally can’t wait to shine a light on my brothers Jay and Gary this year, and make another mountain of new memories with them.”
 Kicking off on June 11 in Indianapolis, the tour will take Rascal Flatts from coast to coast, culminating in a bittersweet send off.  Along the way, the trio and their fans will reflect on a beloved catalogue of hits including “Bless The Broken Road,” “My Wish,” “What Hurts The Most” – always soulful, engaging and delivered with a positive, universal message – as well as a string of success that places Rascal Flatts among the modern musical elite. Tickets will be available first as part of the Live Nation Country Megaticket and more information will become available at rascalflatts.com in the coming weeks. Live Nation is the official tour promoter.

 All told, the band has posted 17 Number One songs and sold more than 23 million albums since their founding in 2000, leaving an impact which outshines even their wildest ambitions. Their signature sound was like no other, with LeVox’s voice one of the most recognizable and dynamic of its era, while the rock-solid musicianship of DeMarcus and Rooney infused country tradition with a fresh new, arena-ready energy – helping pave the way for a wave of crossover appreciation still building today, as well as opening doors for so many other artists who followed. 
 Proving the point, Rascal Flatts are the most awarded country group of the past decade with over 40 trophies from the American Country Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards, People’s Choice Awards and more, as well as breaking a Guinness World Record for the most consecutive wins of Vocal Group of the Year at the ACMs, winning the honor seven times in a row. They’ve sold more than 11 million concert tickets and over 35 million digital downloads, and their songs have been streamed more than 2.2 billion times worldwide as well as over 4.4 billion times on Pandora alone.

They’ve risen from a humble Nashville honky tonk to the biggest stages in the world, and are now venue-packing, role-model members of the Grand Ole Opry (2011) and Hollywood Walk Of Fame (2012), who have showcased their commitment to music, faith and family for fans across the globe. In 2006, the trio were the top-selling artist in the world for all genres of music. The group also became household names appearing in blockbuster movies, hit TV shows and major soundtracks throughout the past 20 years. It all adds up to what Rolling Stone has labeled “an indisputably influential career,” and 2020 will mark a well deserved victory lap.

About Rascal Flatts:
Hailed as one of the most influential groups in modern country history, Rascal Flatts are a chart-topping trio created by vocalist Gary LeVox, multi-instrumentalist Jay DeMarcus and guitarist Joe Don Rooney. Since their founding in 2000 and subsequent breakout with the Top 5 hit, “Prayin’ for Daylight,” the band has gone on to infuse country’s traditional mainstream with smooth-pop textures, arena-rocking energy and faithful positivity, impacting countless fans and fellow artists along the way. They’ve racked up 17 Number One hits, over 23.4 million albums sold, 35 million digital downloads, 2.2 billion streams worldwide and 4.4 billion streams solely on Pandora, while also selling over 11 million concert tickets and earning more than 40 trophies from the ACA, ACM, AMA, CMA, People’s Choice and more, making them the most awarded country group of the past decade. The Grand Ole Opry members will bring an unforgettable chapter in country’s long story to a close in 2020, celebrating their 20th anniversary with Rascal Flatts Farewell: Life Is A Highway Tour – the nationwide farewell tour of their celebrated career.

Review: The Blue Stones and JJ Wilde at ThunderBird Cafe

Photos and Review by Tess Casto

Duo band The Blue Stones and opener JJ Wilde brought a memorable performance at the Thunderbird Cafe in Pittsburgh. The energy being brought to the crowd was nothing short of spectacular. The love is shown to both band to the audience and vice versa was appropriate for such an occasion on Valentine’s Day date. 

JJ Wilde who has been active on the scene for over a few years brought nothing but an emotional performance. The set may have only been nine songs, but it was long enough to take me on an unforgettable journey through the eyes and vocals of a young woman trying to figure out life. The intensity in her singing clearly showed the honesty behind the lyrics. I’ve seen this promising individual three times now. She proves time and time again that she is capable of maintaining her authenticity. She is a down to earth individual who isn’t afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve. All of her written work and songs demonstrate this vulnerable asset well. Her songs touch upon the basis of mental health, the highs, and lows that come with life, and so much more. During “Funeral For A Lover”, she momentarily spoke of the meaning behind the song. Essentially, it shares the message of talking about mental health openly. That the stigma surrounding one struggling with wellness within should cease. As an individual who suffers from depression and anxiety, it hit home. To have an artist acknowledge the topic and bring awareness is a beautiful thing. If you have yet to check out JJ Wilde, I highly suggest you doing so. She’s an artist who deserves nothing but success.

JJ had the set bar high for the night, so The Blue Stones had to follow up with something indelible. Without a second thought, the duo had done just that. Though only compromised of two people, their execution was filled with momentum, which flourished and carried throughout. For a few brief pauses, Tarek and Justin thanked the fans and audience who came to support them. That made this concert so much more personal. Seeing smaller artists reminds you that every purchase made supports them to keep living their dreams. 

The fantastic post-punk band Penelope Isles coming to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, February 26th

Penelope Isles, who recently released their critically-acclaimed debut album Until the Tide Creeps In, is about to embark on a North American fall tour and will be stopping through Pittsburgh on Wednesday, February 26th to perform at Mr. Smalls Theater supporting Wallows. On the album, KEXP raves “The debut album from this British band led by brother and sister Jack and Lily Wolter is a well-crafted, atmospheric blend of dreamy psych-pop, arty prog and more.” On release day, Bandcamp said, “…with its gossamer swirls of guitar and hypnotic baroque melodies, Until The Tide Creeps In is full of magical moments that contemplate the Earth’s unknowability, and the complicated humans that inhabit it.
Check out the fantastic singles from the album “Leipzig,” “Chlorine,” “Round” and “Cut Your Hair.”

“Sweltering guitars scorch the earth [on ‘Chlorine’]… While summery synths and keys frolic in spaces left between the drum line and spiraling vocals, the riff phrases communicate nearly as much warmth and meaning as the lyrics do.” – Stereogum 
“There is a grandeur to their songs, big and swelling, ebbs and flows…The whole band is seriously talented, and…seriously rock, too.” – Brooklyn Vegan “Choppy guitar and thumping percussion combine to create a markedly DIY aesthetic throughout the video’s three minutes and five seconds of scrapbooked collage visuals. Said DIY aesthetic, both sonically as well as visually, operates as a self-aware style, one that brings an element of dirty garage rock to the haze of dream-pop flushes.” – Paste “…[a] unique brand of noisy pop…” – FLOOD Magazine “[Penelope Isles] emerges with “Chlorine,’ sounding like Kevin Parker leaving the insular nature of Tame Impala behind and forming an earnest, fuzzy indie rock band.” – Uproxx “There’s a feeling of nostalgia and jubilation when listening to ‘Round,’ with the lo-fi indie offering held together by dreamy percussion, psychedelic guitar rhythms and the engaging male/female harmonies of the Wolter siblings.” – Indie Shuffle “…a dreamy but biting piece of guitar pop…soaring, pastoral, highly intelligent songwriting.” – Clash Music

CODE ORANGE record release party @ROXIANTHEATER March 14

 GRAMMY nominated band Code Orange have shared “Swallowing The Rabbit Whole,” the second new track to be released off their forthcoming LP UNDERNEATHdue out March 13th via Roadrunner Records [Album Art / Tracklist Below]. “Swallowing The Rabbit Whole” is available today on all streaming platforms and joined by a Max Moore directed music video.  The official clip builds upon the final scenes of the video for the album’s title track, and sees drummer / vocalist Jami Morgan emerging in a new role.  A brutal discourse on self-reflection is delivered as Code Orange prove once again, they cannot be confined to any singular box.

Morgan detailed the track explaining, “’Swallowing The Rabbit Whole’ is the passageway into the deep descent that is the next era of Code Orange… the next piece to the puzzle of UNDERNEATH. Duality is key, not only thematically on this album, but in the continued evolution of our sound and the larger heavy music world in general. You’ve got it all figured out until you’re drowning in it.

Last month Code Orange broke the news of their forthcoming LP UNDERNEATH and offered a glimpse into their reconfigured and urgent compositions with the LP’s title track. “’Underneath’ hulks out from oil-slick-black electronics and menacing synths, peeling under the skin to uncage Code Orange’s next evolution,” declared NPR with Stereogum adding, “It pushes the band’s sound into something even bigger.” Rolling Stone praised Code Orange’s, “cutting melodies and the group’s balance of industrial rattle and shock-treatment guitar riffs,” while Revolver attested, “the song takes Code Orange’s ever-evolving mix of hardcore, metal, industrial music and alt-rock next level.”

UNDERNEATH is available for pre-order with bundles and four limited edition vinyl colorways, each featuring a gatefold jacket with a lenticular cover, also available.  Produced by Morgan and Nick Raskulinecz with co-producer Will Yip, UNDERNEATH features additional programming from Chris Vrenna, and was mixed by Yip and Code Orange’s own Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose.

Comprised of Jami Morgan (Drums / Vocals), Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose (Electronics / Guitar / Vocals), Reba Meyers (Guitar / Vocals), Dominic Landolina (Guitar) and Joe Goldman (Bass), Code Orange will make their live return on March 14th with a hometown record release show in Pittsburgh, PA, before heading out on The UNDERNEATHTHESKIN­_TOUR with special guests Show Me The Body, Jesus Piece, Year Of The Knife, and Machine Girl.  That headline tour is set to get underway March 30th in Boston, MA and is routed through Code Orange’s April 10th + 17th performances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival [Itinerary Below].  Immediately following the spring tour, Code Orange will head out on Slipknot’s KNOTFEST ROADSHOW 2020North American tour, which begins May 30th in Syracuse, NY.  For tickets and more information on Code Orange’s upcoming tour dates, visit www.CodeOrangeTOTH.com

In 2017, Code Orange flipped the heavy music world on its head with their breakthrough album FOREVER, a collection that masterfully mixed hardcore aggression with urgent industrial textures, earning the band a breakthrough GRAMMY nomination and top placement on several “Best of 2017” lists including: Rolling Stone’s “20 Best Metal Albums of 2017,” Revolver’s “20 Best Albums of 2017,” and The Independent’s “Top 20 Rock & Metal Albums of 2017.”

This past summer, Code Orange made headlines in the professional wrestling world with the  release of “Let Me In,” their official entrance theme for WWE Superstar ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt.  Code Orange previously featured at WWE’s NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III performing a rendition of wrestler Aleister Black’s entrance theme alongside Incendiary’s Brendan Garrone.  “Let Me In” followed Code Orange’s 2018 release of THE HURT WILL GO ON, a digital EP featuring “3 Knives” and “The Hunt” Feat. Corey Taylor, as well as “The Hurt Will Go On” (Shade Remix), an official remix of Code Orange’s “Hurt Goes On” helmed by the band’s guitarist and vocalist Shade.  More recently the Code Orange has collaborated with a wide array of artists, co-producing Injury Reserve’s “HPNGC” Feat. JPEGMAFIA, as well as serving up a pair of remixes for alt-J’s “Hit Me Like That Snare” and “Adeline.”
