About FELIX MARTIN:

Although Berklee-educated modern progressive/world fusion guitarist FELIX MARTIN’s popularity first exploded in 2012 with the release of his Live in Boston album via Prosthetic Records, he originally began shaping his unique performance techniques at the age of just 13. His unparalleled ability to perform a striking genre-blend of metal, jazz, progressive, world and Latin music while nimbly executing it with personally-designed 14 and 16-string guitars is what preserves Martin at the forefront of fusion music today.

 

FELIX MARTIN will release his new album, Mechanical Nations, on February 24. good portion of Mechanical Nations is inspired by industrialized South American locations and the hard work of the people. Musically, Martin’s goal with this album was to discover unique sounds on the electric guitar while blending rock and metal with a Latin spark.

Concert Coverage: Anti-Flag “Rock Against the TPP” road show @MrSmalls in Millvale

Pittsburgh’s own politically active punk band Anti-Flag brought the “Rock Against the TPP” road show to Mr. Smalls in Millvale Thursday night. The Rock Against the TPP Tour is being organized by Fight for the Future along with Firebrand Records, the new social justice infused record label co-founded by Tom Morello and Ryan Harvey, acting as the tour’s artistic partner. The road show is sponsored and co-organized by a diverse coalition of groups fighting against the corporate power grab that is the Trans-Pacific Partnership. According to the tour press release, “The TPP has little to do with trade, but instead grants multinational corporations extraordinary new powers to threaten jobs, the environment, affordable medicine, free speech, and food safety.” The Rock Against the TPP tour brings together a broad coalition of supporters including digital rights groups, labor unions, environmental groups, and small businesses to mobilize opposition to what is viewed as a dangerous, anti-democratic deal. “

FATES WARNING – Debut video clip for “Seven Stars” via Billboard website

FATES WARNING – Debut video clip for “Seven Stars” via Billboard website!
In promotion of their much acclaimed new album ‘Theories Of Flight’, U.S. Progressive Metal pioneers FATES WARNING are debuting their promotional video for the song “Seven Stars” via the website of Billboard today. Check out the clip, which was directed by David Brodsky for MyGoodEye / www.mgenyc.com, here:
FATES WARNING vocalist Ray Alder checked in with the following comment about the video:
“We are happy to debut the new video for “Seven Stars” from our latest album “Theories Of Flight”. This song is very special to me. The lyrics for this song were the first that I had written for the new album. I knew that my life was changing, I had met my lovely (now) wife who lived in Madrid, Spain and she was the inspiration for this song. I knew that I would be moving to Madrid soon, so the lyrics tended to come very organically. That theme would develop more as the writing progressed. Stories of change and moving on. Living life really. I found the flag of Madrid quite interesting. Seven white stars surrounded by red…Hence the inspiration for the title. I figured I would give a little tour of the city in the video since I’m now here. Enjoy!”
