GuitarWorld Premieres New Winslow Music Video

The song, “Alone Tonight,” is from the band’s new album, Left of the Right Direction, which will be released March 26 via Little Fish Records and RCR Recording Studios.

The six-piece teamed up producer Edwin “Tony” Nicholas (Barry White, Mary J Blige, Gerald Levert) and engineer Nick Chahwala (Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Gym Class Heroes) to produce the new album.

“We have grown a lot since our first album,” says vocalist Maurice Martin. “I feel like our songwriting really has come a long way. We aren’t trying to fit into a mold of a certain genre or style. Our real goal was to create an album that we could be proud of. Call it pop. Call it soul. As long as people listen, they can call it what they will.”

Winslow is Maurice Martin (vocals), Matt Tieman (saxophone), Curtis Tate (keyboard), Charlie Trenta (guitar), Danny Kolliner (bass) and Jesse Marquardt (drums).

The song in the video — “Alone Tonight” — is available now from iTunes at this location.

THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY Debut EP Time’s Running Out Available Today

THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY may have originated from Washington DC but their style, image, sound and attitude are straight from the Sunset Strip in its debaucheries-filled heyday. The five-song Time’s Running Out EP which is set to be released next Tuesday December 4th has announced their arrival to the world with passion and intensity, issuing a warning to pretenders that THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY means business. This is no fly-by-night outfit; this is the real rock n’ roll deal. The EP can be ordered through Amazon and iTunes.

The band commented on their debut EP:

“Time’s Running Out is the soundtrack to the last seven months of our lives. It is the culmination of personal experiences, a sense of rebellion against the fleeting trends in “the scene”, and an unbridled release of emotion. We are so proud of what we have created for our fans and we can’t wait to get to work on our upcoming full length album.”

Today GuitarWorld.com, the online home of Guitar World Magazine is hosting an exclusive stream of the EP. Check out Time’s Running Out in its entirety courtesy of Guitar World HERE.

THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY combine the bombastic, emotive theatrics of My Chemical Romance, the unstoppably melodic but jagged punk hooks of Green Day and the forceful, confident and party-going atmosphere of Skid Row in a way that’s fresh and original. They’ve taken these components and structured a sound that sounds as vital today as “Youth Gone Wild” back in the day. It’s the sound of the greatest bands of yesterday colliding with the anxiousness of today. THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY is combustible and ready to ignite across the globe.
