THE LA MAYBE Release Official Lyric Video for “Peace of Mind”!

Profile Pic

Carolinas based heavy rock band THE LA MAYBE–fronted by lead singer Alvi Robinson, made famous when he was nearly selected to front the legendary band AC/DC in 2016–have released the official lyric video for their uplifting, anthemic new single, “Peace of Mind.” Designed by Dallas, the band chose a lyric video for “Peace of Mind” to focus on the lyrics and message of the song.

‘Peace of Mind’ is a song about struggling with addiction. Battling your inner demons can be hard, but we all just want to come out the other side with a little peace of mind. More than anything, this song is a message of hope. We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!” – DALLAS DWIGHT

Advance Praise for Dirty Damn Tricks:

“Dirty Damn Tricks rules from beginning to end, so be sure to listen straight through so you don’t miss crucial deep cuts like “Fake” and “Up Next To You.” The L.A. Maybe could be the most important band in the USA right now just because they get rock and roll so right. The band’s grasp on what needs to happen to keep rock music moving forward while keeping its spirit alive is intuitive and on target. You have GOT to hear this record.” – Rock & Blues Muse

“The quality of the song writing on offer here is impressive for a new band with a debut album, and there really isn’t a weak track on “Dirty Damn Tricks”. “Oh Sugar” is a song that has the lot, dripping in swagger it is the perfect summer rock song. “Piece of Mind” is bluesier and slower yet not quite a ballad, “Sweet” comes complete with a vocal that could cut through most things whilst “Up Next To You” rounds it all off in style.” – Get Ready to Rock

“A screaming voice, powerful riffs, bold lyrics – that’s classic rock. If you loved the long haired guys of the 1970’s and 1980’s, you should definitely dare a listen to Dirty Damn Tricks. The album comes with a high potential for you that you will enjoy these tunes. I definitely had a lot of fun!” – Flyctory

“To sum up, if you like the aforementioned AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses or even Van Halen, you will love this album. It perfectly showcases the incredible versatility of these fine musicians as they draw on a number of musical styles whilst retaining their own definitive sound. I have no doubt listening to this that these guys will put on an incredible live show and I’ll certainly be first in line for a ticket!” – Rockasaurus

THE LA MAYBE Release Official Music Video for “Oh Sugar”!

Profile Pic

Carolinas based heavy rock band THE LA MAYBE–fronted by lead singer Alvi Robinson, made famous when he was nearly selected to front the legendary band AC/DC in 2016–have released the official music video for “Oh Sugar.” Directed by Ridge Beck, “Oh Sugar” is the electrifying third track off of the band’s debut LP, Dirty Damn Tricks, and the kind of rock n’ roll tune that comes together when you combine the down and dirty riffs of AC/DC with an earworm pop hook that is sure to be embedded in your brain for months to come.

For ‘Oh Sugar’ we knew we wanted to capture the fun vibes that the song portrayed and to do that, we didn’t have to look any further than our hometown. A bar / arcade (or “barcade”, if you will) right in our hometown of Rock Hill, SC – Player 1 Up – was the perfect location. Filled with classic arcade games, many representing the bands that influence our own music, the venue is saturated with rich colors that really made this video pop. Over two riotous days of shooting, we put together what you see in the final video!” – DALLAS DWIGHT

Player

Dirty Damn Tricks is the blistering debut album that comes together when you combine the singalong choruses of AC/DC with the punchy riffs of Motley Crüe, sprinkle in some Southern Carolina heat, and bring it all into the 21st Century. These tracks are an anthem for those who fly the flag of the New Wave of Classic Rock. It’s an ode to living fast and loose. But most of all, it’s a call to arms for rock n’ roll fans everywhere to stand up, get loud, and to never let the music die without a hell of a fight.

This track is an anthem for those who fly the flag of the New Wave of American Rock. It’s about always being told no, but never accepting defeat.

WATCH ME BREATHE Release New Single,”Garden of Eden”

Garden Of Eden COVER

Santa Cruz, CA – Progressive Pop-Rock Band WATCH ME BREATHE has released their new single, “Garden of Eden,” which is available NOW via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“People have mistaken this for a religious song, but it’s really not. What the Garden Of Eden metaphor really means here is universal place of origin. Some 100,000 years ago, human beings still lived in the natural environment that our bodies and minds evolved to live in. Now, we don’t. We’ve spent the last 100,000 years creating a world that is progressively less and less like any of us. And despite the many ways in which that is a wonderful thing we should be grateful for, I sense there are other, easily underestimated ways in which it confuses and confines us at a primal level. I’m not sure what we do about it, but the song is here simply to pose the question.” – Jake Aaron Ward

WATCH ME BREATH

From the very beginning, Watch Me Breathe has been all about honesty and authenticity. Lead singer Jake Aaron Ward formed the band in 2017 purely out of frustration. “As a solo artist, I just got fed up with trying to write music only to please other people. Watch Me Breathe is really an experiment that says: what would I write if nobody else was listening?”

The results of that experiment have been surprising. In the short time since the release of their debut LP “The Lighter Side of Darkness” in February 2018, Watch Me Breathe has already accrued well over 150K views on YouTube and over 50K streams on Spotify…and the numbers keep growing.

When it comes to making albums, this particular band has an unusual process not unlike that of Tame Impala or Bon Iver: Ward (a proficient multi-instrumentalist) writes, performs, records, mixes, and masters every song entirely by himself, in his own California home studio. He jokingly explains “I just kind of suck at collaborating.” He cites an eclectic range of influences, including Peter GabrielThe PoliceImogen HeapGoo Goo Dolls, and a whole slew of underground progressive metal bands that have helped shape his unique guitar parts and complex rhythmic patterns. In concert, the band performs as a power trio, with Ward covering guitar and lead vocals, while bassist Ryan Green and drummer/baby brother Carl Ward handle the rhythm section.
