WICKED GARDEN Releases Official Music Video for “Home, Too Far”

homecover2

Las Vegas, NV based rock band WICKED GARDEN has released the official music video for their new single, “Home, Too Far.” Written and directed by Dominick Muzio and Shawn Trojahn, the video for “Home, Too Far” was filmed by Stephy Hayward of Livewire Photography and edited by Nicholas Muzio at Die-Hearts Productions.

“This is a song about loss, and how you can never get back the time you have with someone once they are gone. And while the term “Home” refers to an afterlife or another plane of existence, it’s too far away for the people that have been left behind” – Dominick Muzio (Lead Singer/Guitarist)

Player

“I was frustrated by not having written anything in a while. Then when I came up with this riff, I knew it had something. It was different from our other songs, but still sounded like us.” – Shawn Trojahn (Lead Guitarist)

Canadian Rockers DOLL Announce UK Release of New Album ‘The Ragdoll Diaries’

Canadian female fronted alternative rockers DOLL are proud to announce the UK release of their new album ‘The Ragdoll Diaries’ on July 29th via Cargo Records to follow up to their popular award nominated 2009 debut ‘Inside The Dollhouse’.

“After thousands of copies sold in Canada and in the USA, we’re extremely happy to have The Ragdoll Diaries distributed in the UK. Cargo Records has been distributing an amazing catalogue of music for over 13 years and now our UK fans will be able to pick up a copy of the album in stores instead of paying high shipping costs.” comments vocalist /guitarist Christina Kasper.

The Ragdoll Diaries is undoubtedly Doll’s best works to date, working alongside producer Jason Jaknunas for an album that has it all, creative musicianship, honest lyrics, and a truth that’s been missing in music for some time. Supported by the fearlessly rocking threesome of Pete Kasper, Nick ‘Chopz’ Richer and newcomer to the Doll family Alex Vance, this is one band that you don’t want to miss getting in on the party early and staying for days while you zone out the beautifully crafted yet fiercely hard hitting tunes.

The grunge punksters have released their third and latest music video ‘Plastic Lies’ in support of ‘The Ragdoll Diaries’, which follows their two previous music videos ‘Youth of Today, Hope For Tomorrow’ and ‘FMO’.

Formed in 2005, Doll provides the missing link between punk and rock, a sound that’s been lacking in mainstream music for quite some time. With fresh and honest songs cutting through like a hot knife through butter, the rockers snap the listener out of their daze and onboard their trip of truth and beautifully crafted angst through sound and vision. Inspired by the great bands such as Sonic Youth, Hole and L7, Paramore, Flyleaf and Die Mannequin, Doll is on its way to becoming a creative and honest musical force to be reckoned with.

2012 saw great advances for the band, completing several successful Eastern Canadian tours, and breaking into the US market on their first ever tour through America, their live show is evolving and becoming one of the highlights of Canadian music. With strong performances at year’s past festivals such as the Ottawa Bluesfest, IndieWeek Canada, NXNE, and D-Tox Rockfest, a strong review in many major publications such as Outburn and Revolver Magazines, along with local support from the Ottawa Xpress being nominated over years in the Best Rock album and Band categories, sharing the stage with Protest The Hero, Lacuna Coil, Three Days Grace and tons more, to selling out over 1,000 copies of both albums and 500 vinyls of the Ragdoll Diaries, video plays across MuchMusic and MusiquePlus, and ever increasing radio plays, the band has embraced DIY to its highest degree continually improving its social media reach and brand awareness. You can expect big things from Doll in the near future! 2013 will prove to be a game changer not only for the band, but the Canadian musical landscape, with plans to return to the US and to branch out even further into Canadian markets.

Upcoming Show Dates

July 5 – St Jean Sur Richelieu, QC – Barock
July 6 – Montreal, QC – Piranha Bar

Alice in Chains Kick Off a Grunge Weekend for Pittsburgh

Alice-In-Chains-2013

One of my favorite rock star encounters to tell is the time I ran into Layne Staley, the now deceased singer of Alice in Chains, back in the early nineties in a bar near Ft. Lauderdale.  I had been living in Miami for a few months, crashing on friends floors, making ends meet by working landscaping with Cuban illegals and down and out guys who lost everything due to their addictions and were trying to get their lives back together, having met the owner of the company through AA.  My friend from college whose floor I was sleeping on was dating the manager of the company who was kind enough to let me plant palm trees and work on Julia Iglesias’ house inbetween looking for other work.  Anyways, I was still pretty broke and living on Taco Bell bean burritos so I could not afford to go see Alice in Chains and their opener GrunTruck playing in Miami.  Thus, I was fairly bummed.

My former next door neighbor happened to move to North Miami Beach and she took me out to a bar to buy me a few brews to cheer me up.  There I am nursing my beer minding my own business and this scraggly guy comes up to the bar with a cane and his leg in a case.  It’s fucking Layne.  I could not believe it.  He was fairly lucid. “Layne, can I get you a beer?” I said sheepishly.  “Sure, man, thanks,” replied Layne in a deep growl never really looking at me in his sunglasses.  Layne had recently broke his leg on tour and it was in a full cast.  Searching for some kind of conversation with the man I simply said, “How’s your leg?”  To which he replied, “It’s just a fuckin’ leg man.”  And then he walked off and sat with some people and we never spoke again.

Some twenty odd years later and Layne is long gone but Alice in Chains  is still very much alive.  They certainly proved it last night in Pittsburgh.  Oddly playing the Benedum Theater, usually reserved for the ballet and opera or the likes of Tony Benett, AIC brought the rock right out of the gate.  New lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist William DuVall sounds exactly like Staley while looking a lot more like Lenny Kravitz and he proved more than able to fill those shoes and carry on not only as replacement but as a true contributor just as he has done since we first heard him belt out “Check My Brain” in 2009.  But Jerry Cantrell’s band did not focus on newer material most of the evening, they certainly knew their audience well and stuck to the meat of what the audience came to see and that was classic Alice.  Second in the set was “Them Bones” with high points in the evening being “Dam That River”, “Down In A Hole”, and of course “Would?”.  The tremendous encore consisted of ” Man in the Box”, “No Excuses”, and “Rooster”.  That last tune was made extra amazing by the special appearance of The Rooster himself, Jerry’s dad.

Jerry Cantrell continues to prove why he is one of the best axe men in the business and a tremendous songwriter and riff master.  Sean Kinney and Mike Inez still keep it down extremely well and prove you can still put on a great rock show without a ton of fluff and smoke.  It’s a great way to warm up the weekend for their Seattle brethren Soundgarden stopping by on Sunday at Stage AE.  Grunge is alive and well people. Layne Staley and Mike Starr…RIP.
