Tonight Alive Bring The Get Free Tour to Millvale 3.1/Co-Headlined with Silverstein and support from Broadside and Picturesque

Tonight Alive are celebrating their worldwide charting positions for Underworld. Including the #1 Australian Artists Chart and #11 ARIA Albums Chart in Australia, #4 Current Alternative Albums, #5 Record Label Independent Current Albums and #11 Top Current Rock Albums in the United States, #3 Rock Albums, #6 Independent Albums and a Top 100 Albums spot in the UK while rounding out the Top 50 on Canada’s Alternative Charts, it was an incredibly successful week for the band’s first release on Hopeless Records (UNFD in Australia and New Zealand.) Already heralded by press as some of the band’s best work to date, Underworld is available today on  Spotify,  Apple Music and  iTunes. Physical albums and merch bundles are available at http://smarturl.it/TAUWmerch.
This success has been echoed across radio with Underworld being chosen as Triple J Radio’s feature “album of the week” and the band’s latest single, ” Disappear” premiering as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1. Streaming services have been showing their love to the single along with “Crack My Heart” and ” Temple.”  Songs from Underworld have been featured in over 15 Spotify-owned playlists across the platform including New Music Friday, The Scene, Rock This and Crash Course and the band’s monthly listeners have reached nearly 900,000.
Most recently, Tonight Alive released “Crack My Heart,” the brand new single from upcoming album Underworld. On the track, Singer Jenna McDougall shares “The concept of cracking the heart is to allow the precious, vulnerable self to come through and be free. The painful, yet liberating experience involves the emotional and energetic decalcification of the hardened heart. The lyrics follow my conversation with a ‘winged man’, a conscious figure, who offers space and safety to do my healing with. In my experience, when you are seen as your authentic self by another, you come to recognise your reflection more accurately and lovingly. Crack My Heart is a tribute to the way that love from the divine masculine elevates and holds space for the divine feminine to flourish.” Fans can head to http://smarturl.it/CrackMyHeartVideo to check out the accompanying music video.

Destroyers of the Soft Life began two years ago when Walston (lead singer / guitar / piano), Billy Gordon (guitar),Logan Davis (bass) and Steve Colmus (drums) transformed space in a Richmond, Virigina WWII era bomb shelter turned lumber yard into their own recording studio. The album is co-produced by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Built To Spill, Father John Misty.) 

“A massive record, one that would transform their raucous, Southern barroom boogie into anthemic arena rock, brimming with vocal hooks and sporting crystalline production to match.”
– Billboard
 
“The Baltimore quartet has added a dose of anthemic drive to their soaring song structures and sing-along melodies” – Paste

The Brothers Reed – Pittsburgh performance @BlackForgeCoffee

The sibling acoustic duo from Southern Oregon, The Brothers Reed, are on a two-month national tour promoting their brand new album “Three” set to release on Jan.6th. They are performing at Black Forge Coffee House in Pittsburgh on February 15th.

“Their melodies make their music exceptional” – Natalie Johnson (music editor for Sneak Preview)

“…intoxicating sound a light in the darkness of the song craft” – Josh Gross (album review in Rogue Valley Messenger)

Despite their brotherhood, Aaron and Phil Reed didn’t start playing music together until two years ago after Phil left their hometown of St. Charles, Missouri to join Aaron in the unsullied mountains of the American Northwest. The brothers family blend of folk encapsulates the grit and humor of Midwest life with the swagger and serenity of the west coast. Their style evokes finger picking folk singers of the 60’s and 70’s with a contemporary and boundless edge. Cultivated from years of performing in bands ranging from heavy metal to reggae and rock, to punk, country, and funk, their musical dichotomy is at the root of their diverse yet seamless folk-brand.

            With their comedic brotherly banter, impeccable harmonic expression, and widely varying influences, a Brothers Reed performance will have you reflecting on lost lives and lovers, laughing hysterically and leaving completely entertained.  

Touring as a guitar-duo, the group incorporates harmonica, percussion and keys into their live performances, soothing your soul with songs that are familiar yet original.   Whether they are finger picking their way through a lamentable ballad or bringing you around full-speed with a barn-burning bluegrass number, The Brothers Reed are masters of their craft.

            Winners of 2014’s “Road to Nashville,” competition as well as finalists and crowd favorites of Britt Festivals 2015 “Rising Stars Contest,” the Brothers Reed have quickly risen to regional renown and now tour extensively throughout the U.S. Their sophomore full length, Monster In My Head (released March 2016), is a power-punch follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed debut, Sick As Folk. Moving away from the stripped down approach of Sick As Folk, Monster In My Head combines full band instrumentation with the finest elements of folk, rock, R&B, country and reggae, to create a record that at 17 tracks is an ambitious yet fluid piece of work. The album also marks the group’s first effort at collaboration and features several guest artists including Jeff Pevar (Crosby, Stills and Nash; Ray Charles; Jazz is Dead), T.J. Eilers (Synrgy, Buckle Rash, The Illies) and Ambur Rose (Roses and Whiskey).

All aspects of the brand including management, website design, graphics, and album production (engineering, recording and mixing) is done completely by The Brothers.

CHRIS CORNELL RELEASES NEW SONG ‘THE PROMISE’ TODAY

CHRIS CORNELL RELEASES NEW SONG ‘THE PROMISE’ TODAY!

FEATURED IN FORTHCOMING FILM THE PROMISE STARRING CHRISTIAN BALE AND OSCAR ISAAC

PROCEEDS TO INTERNATIONAL RESCUE COMMITTEE 

Chris Cornell releases a new original song entitled “The Promise” today. Chris wrote the song for the forthcoming feature film The Promise, starring Academy Award winning actor Christian Bale and Golden Globe winning actor Oscar Isaac. The Promise is directed by Terry George and will be released in theatres on April 21, 2017 by Open Road Films.

Chris has unveiled a lyric video for the song today which can be seen HERE and the song is now available at all streaming services and digital retailers:

iTuneshttp://smarturl.it/iTunesThePromise

Apple Music: http://smarturl.it/ThePromiseApple

Spotify: http://smarturl.it/ThePromiseSpotify

Chris will donate his proceeds from the song to the International Rescue Committee. The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster.

Chris’s involvement in The Promise stemmed from his close friendship with the film’s producer, Eric Esrailian. Having married into a Greek family, Chris had been exposed for years to stories about similar treatment suffered by the Greeks at the hands of the Turkish-ruled Ottoman Empire. “If it’s something you or your family members went through, it’s something you’re faced with confronting on a daily basis,” he said.

Immersed in these stories and after further research, he was inspired by the strength and perseverance of those who were affected by these tragic events. Chris aimed to help tell the story of the film, but also to connect it to the kind of brutality we still face today.

“The film and plot are your band mates and the song has to be true to the story and the characters in it,” he added. “’The Promise’ to me is mainly about paying homage to those we lost in the Armenian Genocide, but it’s also about shining a light on more recent atrocities. The same methods used in the Armenian genocide were used to carry out crimes against humanity in Bosnia, Darfur, Rwanda and right now in Syria on multiple fronts, contributing to a massive global refugee crisis. Unfortunately, the words ‘never again’ seem like just words when we recall these mass executions of the twentieth century, as well as renewed racism and prejudice around the world. Even in the US, the warning signs – isolating groups based on race and religion – are evident. We really need to tell these stories and keep telling them in as many different ways as we can. As humans, we have a tremendous capacity to trudge ahead in our lives and not look at the difficult and challenging moments… but I think it’s important. Educating ourselves on the past is the best way to understand the present and avoid future atrocities by understanding and intervening. We must educate and stand as one to combat this fear and violence, and as citizens of the world, work to protect each other’s human rights.”

Directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George (Hotel Rwanda, Reservation Road, The Shore), The Promise takes place in 1914. As the Great War looms, the mighty Ottoman Empire is crumbling. Constantinople, the once vibrant, multicultural capital on the shores of the Bosporus, is about to be consumed by chaos. Michael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac), arrives in the cosmopolitan hub as a medial student determined to bring modern medicine back to Siroun, his ancestral village in Southern Turkey where Turkish Muslims and Armenian Christians have lived side by side for centuries. Photojournalist Chris Myers (Christian Bale) has come here only partly to cover geo-politics. He is mesmerized by his love for Ana (Charlotte le Bon), an Armenian artist he has accompanied from Paris after the sudden death of her father. When Michael meets Ana, their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between the two men. As the Turks form an alliance with Germany and the Empire turns violently against its own ethnic minorities, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to survive even as events threaten to overwhelm them.

Art Brut are a part German part English band. The genre they work in is very honest, guitar based pop music. They have been around for 10 years, toured the world numerous times and released four albums ( the last two produced by the legendary front man of the Pixies, Black Francis).

This App is a recommended companion to their recent Best Of album, Art Brut Top Of The Pops.

Old hippies and idiots who only collect vinyl often complain that album artwork has suffered in recent times due to it not being as readily available on huge 12 inch pieces of cardboard. Art Brut disagree, we have embraced the future, 12 inch pieces of cardboard are for squares. Our App – or super futurisitc album artwork if you will – contains previews of the songs from Top of the Pops and includes the exclusive comics that were produced for each of the album’s tracks. Unlike a big piece of cardboard you can carry this around in your pocket. Well… in your phone or iPod in your pocket. And On your iPad, which won’t fit in your pocket.

Phone apps are the new 12 inch pieces of cardboard! Hooray.

Enjoy.Love Art But X
