MONSTER MAGNET Unleash Title Track of “MINDFUCKER”
via Brooklyn Vegan 
New Album Out March 23rd via Napalm Records



“Ladies and gentlemen, I humbly present for your consideration the title track from our new album: MINDFUCKER. We got the rock if you want it! I hope you can dig it”, Dave WyndorfMONSTER MAGNET frontman.
Today the title track and first single “MINDFUCKER” has been made available for streaming.  Get a first listen to the track HERE, courtesy ofBrooklyn Vegan.
MONSTER MAGNET puts the pedal to the metal with “MINDFUCKER”,their 11th record.   “MINDFUCKER” is different, a step forward and a step back at the same time to the almighty roots of hard rock music, kindled by the unpretentious Proto-punk era. Up tempo, savage in both sound and spirit,“MINDFUCKER” is the real deal! The album has the potential to surprise and to whip up the love for the genre, while still giving the sludgies and stoner freaks exactly what they wish for in a new MONSTER MAGNET album.
“MINDFUCKER” will be released on March 23, 2018 and can be pre-ordered right HERE!
MONSTER MAGNET will be on tour in Europe this May and June, a complete list of dates can be found below.  The band is currently planning a full North American tour as well.  Details coming soon!

Emarosa Announces Spring Tour Dates/Stage AE 5/9

Photo Credit: Ashley Osborne

Emarosa has just announced a headlining tour with Chapel this Spring. The tour kicks off on April 17th in Lansing, MI and wraps up on May 24th in San Antonio, TX. Tickets are on sale today at 10am local time here. Most recently, the band announced they, along with Chapel, would be joining Sum 41 and Pierce The Veil on the upcoming We Will Detonate! Tour, presented by Loudwire Live. For a full list of tour dates and more information on Emarosa, please visit emarosa.us.

VIP Packages are available for purchase as well. A portion of every package will go to the LTD Foundation, which bridges the music industry together with fans who have terminal diseases by giving them their own Dream Day Backstage. VIP Packages are available here: http://ltdvip.org/emarosavip
Featuring the acclaimed singles “Sure”, “Cloud 9“, “Helpless“, “Blue” and “Miracle“, the highly anticipated album, 131, was released in July via Hopeless Records and garnered incredible praise with Substream Magazine saying “We don’t hesitate to proclaim Emarosa is better now than ever before” and Chorus.fm stating that “‘131’ shatters the mold the band previously sat in and stands out as a modern rock masterpiece that delivers hit after heart-felt hit.”
131 was produced in Nashville by Casey Bates, who is known for his work with artists like Portugal The Man, Chiodos, PierceThe Veil, Memphis May Fire, Gatsbys American Dream and many more. During the recording process, the band made a conscious effort to throw all expectations to the side and record the album they always wanted to make, free of all external pressures. As a result, the record takes a pop-turn, reflecting Walden’s diverse influences, including Michael Jackson and PatrickStump, while still retaining Emarosa’s signature grittiness. Fans old and new will enjoy the dynamic sounds of 131.
On 131‘s evolved sound, Walden explores the boundaries of rock and infuses these epically charged anthems with an even fuller sense of grandeur than on past releases. “I’m so proud of this. It’s my favorite thing I’ve ever done. This is the record we wanted to make,” he shares.
 
Emarosa’s current line up includes Bradley Scott Walden, ER White, Jordan Stewart and Matthew Marcellus.
131 is now available for purchase at the following links:

Brit tech metal outfit, SikTh @MrSmalls Saturday August 27

The Brit tech metal outfit, SikTh (www.facebook.com/sikthofficial). The guys just arrived last week, as part of the ‘Sonic Unrest Tour,’ in direct support of Periphery, on their first ever tour on this side. They’ll be at Mr Smalls Saturday August 27.  

SikTh formed in ’99, although spent the better part of 2008-2014 on hiatus & returned publicly, headlining the Red Bull Stage at Download, in ‘14.

 

They’re cited by a lot of bands as an influence, including the headliner, and are kind of a cornerstone that helped launch the djent tone/scene – along with the mighty Meshuggz.

This past December, they digitally released a new 6-track offering, on Peaceville, called ‘Opacities’ (and right after, hit the road with Slipknot). It’s their first new music in 10 years and will be physically released on LP/Cd versions, also on Peaceville, on September 16. For a sample, the new-ish track ‘Philistine Philosophies’ can be seen/heard @ www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8C0-8FACWo.

Chon and Toothgrinder round out the package for the 23-city trek, beginning August 4 in Raleigh, N.C. A full list of dates can be seen below. Stream a new teaser video for the upcoming trek on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/gG8QBJLyo-U. SikTh vocalist Mikee Goodman comments: “Touring America has always been a huge goal for SikTh; up to this point it hasn’t been possible, but we’re pleased to announce we are finally coming over as direct support to Periphery in August! August is a significant month in our career as it marks the 16th anniversary of our first release (‘The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait for Something Wild’). We’ve taken our time, but this is a great tour and opportunity to play for our very patient fans in the U.S. and also make new fans!” SikTh is touring in support of its ‘Opacities’ mini-album, available on iTunes at: http://smarturl.it/Opacities_Digital.

‘Opacities’ will also see a physical release in North America this September 16 via Peaceville. Recorded at Lincoln’s Chapel Studios and produced by SikTh’s own Dan Weller and Justin Hill (mixed by Forrester Savell [Karnivool, Animals As Leaders, Dead Letter Circus]), ‘Opacities’ was described by guitarist Dan Weller as a “more thoughtful, heavier, more refined” record. This is demonstrated in the video for “Philistine Philosophies,” which was directed and created by Mikee W. Goodman and can be seen online at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8C0-8FACWo. ‘Opacities’ marks the first SikTh release since taking a hiatus in 2008 before reforming at the U.K.’s Download Festival in 2014.

1. Behind the Doors 2. Philistine Philosophies 3. Under the Weeping Moon 4. Tokyo Lights 5. Walking Shadows 6. Days are Dreamed
