LOVE THE HATE New Single, “Solid Ground,” Out NOW!

Mobile, AL based Heavy Rockers LOVE THE HATE has released their brutal new single, “Solid Ground.” With a dark, modern music video directed and filmed by Thomas Crane of KillDevil Films (SalivaTodd La Torre [Queensryche], Eve to Adam), “Solid Ground” has quickly dominated local and international radio, bringing the quintet’s unique brand of dark, heavy riffs and infectious melodies to an audience starved for honest rock music.

The band’s 6/22/2021 released music video for “Solid Ground” was filmed in an historic Mobile mansion known as the “Outlaw Mansion,” which inexplicably burned down shortly after. Often referred to as “Alabama’s Most Haunted House,” the sprawling property was once an opulent mansion–one of Alabama’s finest examples of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture–owned by the Outlaw family since 1925. Former Mobile Mayor Arthur Outlaw lived there until the mid-1980s.

“It played a big role in making the video so cool because it has all of the historical aspects of the house — the handcraftmanship on the house alone is remarkable. My dad was a frame carpenter, so I noticed everything like that. It was amazing for me to stand at the staircase of the house when we were shooting the video and be surrounded by that.” – Frank Killian – Love The Hate.

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

Player

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

SYDNEY SHERWOOD Releases Official, Performance Music Video for Acoustic Version of “Let Me Down”

IMG-7816

New Jersey based Singer / Songwriter SYDNEY SHERWOOD has released the official music video for the acoustic version of her new single, “Let Me Down.” Filmed, recorded and edited by LAMPSHADE SESSIONS, “Let Me Down” is off the dynamic, young songstress’s upcoming EP, Headspace, due out February 27, 2021.

<a href="Player

“I wrote ‘Let Me Down’ with one of my favorite songwriters a few years ago after getting over someone I had feelings for for some time. I like to see the good in people and deep down I knew this person had good in them, but I looked at what that person could’ve been instead of the person that was standing right before me. I gave this person every chance to prove themselves and time and time again I was let down. I was so blinded by this false sense of reality that when this person let me down it felt shocking. I think a lot of people can relate to the fact that when you care for someone, you tend to overlook the negative things they do because you’re consumed with feelings, but now I realize it’s important to have one foot in reality at all times. Writing this song was one of my biggest moments of clarity to see that I deserved more. While the song is definitely not in favor of the guy, his actions opened my eyes to see what I don’t want and what I won’t tolerate. Had I never gone through this experience, I would’ve never known to look for those red flags in the future and I guess I have him to thank for this killer song.” – SYDNEY SHERWOOD

“’Screamworks’ is a song about people who make you want to SCREAM. People who would rather manipulate you to serve their own end even when you have a common goal in mind. The song is an expression of the frustration found in dealing with someone who has their head shoved so far up their own….you know. In a lot of ways its hugely cathartic for us and allows us to finally talk about past experiences bottled up for far too long.” – Glen Bridden – (lead Singer) 2 Shadows

Player

“I wrote and recorded this song specifically for Cody Rhodes. It was originally intended to be the Double or Nothing, Cody vs Dustin, promo, but Cody preferred “Shoes”. At the time, AEW was just beginning and I wanted to write something that I thought captured Cody’s trailblazer like spirit. In hindsight, the song was better suited for the video package which included, Steve-O, Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin. Three very original performers who have paved their own way into history. Something I admire and am attempting to do myself.” – IAN ABEL

The song is written from the point of view of our main character in the graphic novel, September, as she observes the world of the living in which she consistently takes souls from. The track urges the listener to take control of their own thoughts about the world around them and make their own decisions instead of relying on choices skewed heavily by the propaganda that one is constantly bombarded with. ‘Wake the Dead’ encourages the listener to wake from their slumber and make their mark on the world today by raising their conscious thought as well as their voice.” – SEPTEMBER MOURNING

Player

“Written during a cross country move from Kentucky to California, this song delves into the psy-che of someone who has to leave their previous life behind for a new and unknown future.

While the lyrics deal with the unstable handling of it through careless physical relation-ships and possible alcoholism; the music captures more of that excited/nervous/scared energy. That daunting energy of someone who’s packed up everything they own in a 10 x 10 u-haul and headed to a place where they know literally no one.

The two meet on common ground at the chorus. The unifying cry of, ‘It’s All For Love!’ A love for/of what exactly? I mean… I know, but I’d be more interested in hearing what you think.” – IAN ABEL

Player

“Fade Away” is my empowerment anthem. It’s a reminder to myself and every other artist to never give up on our passion or vision. We doubt ourselves as artists all the time. I’ve been given every reason to quit music, but it flows through my veins, so you’ll never see me drown.

The music video shows a wounded warrior facing death after being tormented for a long time by an evil crow. She feels helpless and weak. Halfway through the video, a dark angel who has been watching over her, comes and leaves her a sword to reach for, along with a spell of strength. Towards the end of the video, the wounded warrior reaches for the sword, and is finally able to get back up and fight her battle.” – SHARONE

Despite sustaining a dark and melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics.

There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen.

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and spent the remainder of 2019 recording her third studio album ‘Reflection’, which was released December 7th, 2019.

“[Sharone] showed that she was adept at harnessing the chaos on her previous couple of albums and she’s really turning the gothic-art-pop-rock up on her latest long-player. It’s packed with dark fairytales and swooping riffs as well as more theatrical invention that you’d find at the Royal Shakespeare Company.” – The Crack Magazine

In summary absolute female power, which reminds of Evanescence and Tarja Turunen. This talented singer makes you curious about her live performances!” – Stormbringer.at

Sharone really pushes out the emotions and passion she has for music with this album. It is full of fantastic piano chords and guitar riffs that really show off her band’s talent as a whole. I am excited to see what she releases in the future and will keep an eye out for it. In the Spring of 2020, Sharone signed with Devil Inside Records, and began working on her fourth studio album. The first single “Can We Pretend” was released July 24th, and has been the young rocker’s most successful release to date.

This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm. Look out for more new music from Sharone coming very soon.

SMALL TOWN TITANS are “Rufflin’ Feathers” of Social Media with Ferocious New Single and Music Video!

Rufflin Feathers Album Art

York, PA Heavy Rock Band SMALL TOWN TITANS are taking on the absurdity of the world’s modern social media obsession with their new single and music video, “Rufflin’ Feathers.” The fresh new single features the trio’s trademark sound with a blistering melody, driving rhythm and front-man Phillip Nathaniel Freeman’s extraordinary vocal domination.

Directed by Josh Nesmith and Ben Guiles (guitarist), “Rufflin’ Feathers” is the 5th single off of the band’s upcoming LP, The Ride, due out November 13, 2020 via AntiFragile Music.

“‘Rufflin’ Feathers’ is a tongue-in-cheek song about the circus that is social media this year. It’s become a constant negative assault on the senses. We wrote it for those who want to drown out all of the social noise by turning their speakers up right now.” – Jonny Ross (Drums)

The Ride press photo 3

The Small Town Titans are an American rock n’ roll power trio from York, PA who love to constantly create, as well as play live. Gone is the notion that a rock band should only release 10 songs at a time every 2 years. In a world where music fans crave new content constantly, the Small Town Titans aim to deliver their brand of art all of the time, drawing inspiration from a newer wave of rock bands such as Highly Suspect and Royal Blood, and rock legends such as the Foo Fighters, Audioslave, and Deep Purple. Thanks to their efforts at taking matters into their own hands, STT can create and release songs, podcasts, live online concerts, and more with no rules. In a social media driven world, STT knows releasing quality, constant content is as important as playing great live shows.

In November of 2018, the band’s cover of the Christmas song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” went viral in a matter of days, leading to charting on various Billboard charts including Holiday Digital Song Sales, Rock Digital Song Sales, Emerging Artists, and reaching #5 on the Next Big Sound chart. The song also reached #2 on the iTunes Rock charts, only being surpassed by Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. STT quickly found themselves achieving success, all on their own terms. As a continued unsigned act, all three members have risen to the occasion to continue to make music the way they want to, free from having to follow traditional music industry rules. By changing their mindset and focus towards creating content like many successful YouTubers, STT has made fans the old fashioned way, by word of mouth.

With no manager, label, or radio support, the Small Town Titans have managed to find success by simply never forgetting one thing, their fans, both new and old. Instead of trying to make a million fans, STT is focusing on the fans they already have, and the ones they continue to make. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with a set list that’s decided right before the show, and plenty of stage banter in between songs. The band simply hits the stage to deliver an energy driven show using guitars, drums, and their voices. Nothing more, nothing less. This approach to their live performances has led to them sharing the stage with acts such as Highly Suspect, Papa Roach, Black Stone Cherry, Pop Evil, and more.

By focusing on their engagement on social media and managing themselves, Small Town Titans are growing like never before and having more success as a business and a brand. STT is actively forming a team of like minded individuals in the new music business who are just as driven and passionate as they are, rather than waiting to be discovered.

Birmingham, AL based , Hard Rock / Metal band BrokenRail has released the official music music video for their new single, “The Hate.” Written and recorded during the lockdowns, “The Hate” not only introduces an all new era of BrokenRail, but captures the raw emotion of being left behind in a world trapped with panic, chaos, unrest, uncertainty, and anxiety, reflecting the current state of the world facing lockdown, financial insecurity, social unrest, and the overall experience of living through a global pandemic. We must come together and accept our differences and find the common ground amongst us. United we are strong, divided we fall.

When writing ‘THE HATE’ we really wanted the song to not only showcase the abilities of each of our members, but to also reflect all of the negative emotion worldwide stemming from the virus and the lockdowns it caused. We feel between the song itself and the video we created we truly captured a snapshot of the current state of the world as COVID-19 helped fan the flames and fuel the fires of hate across our Earth. We hope you enjoy the new direction and we’re thrilled to bring you the new album later this year!” – Blake Clawson (Lead Vocalist)

KRANTZ Release Animated Music Video for Uplifting New Single, “Try Living Every Day”

Try Living Everyday Cover

Nashville, TN based Indie singer-songwriter KRANTZ has released the official music video for their inspiring new single, “Try Living Every Day.” Originally premiered on mxdwn, “Try Living Every Day” tells a poignant story of positivity and encouragement.

“I wrote this about a buddy at first, but ended up feeling like I was singing about myself,” said Krantz. “I’ve missed a lot of fun trips, big events, or even just get togethers with friends because I was afraid to take the day off from working. I just thought I had to make money and that was the most important thing, but came to realize I was missing what would have been great times in my life just to have more in my bank account. I’m not saying don’t work a job or anything like that, just don’t become a slave to it and make sure ya live everyday to the fullest. Pep talk over…” – KRANTZ

player

“The song opens with a dramatic hip-hop style beat and a simple piano figure, though as the synths enter it takes a bit of a swing into more left-field, psychedelic sounds not unlike The Flaming Lips. The song is told in a narrative style, describing “He came into the world / With vision quite obscured / His childhood was kind.”

The animated video follows the events of the song, featuring a pregnant woman, a newborn baby and a preschool age child watching television. Eventually he grows into a man who’s first priority is money and stability, something that’s hammered into us from a young age but in an age of increasing wealth disparity, becomes a life and soul-sucking mission for everyone but the richest of the rich.” – MATT MATASCI – mxdwn

2020 Krantz 2061

After leaving his home state of Iowa, traveling the world, touring over 200 days per year with a band called The Effects* and opening for acts such as the Kings of LeonShinedownForeigner, and the Toadies, Jeffrey Krantz made the decision to “live the dream” and eventually landed in Nashville. There, he recorded his first self-produced solo album titled “KRANTZ” in between tapings of MTV’s music competition, American Supergroup, where he eventually became a finalist in the competition. While working nonstop at the Honky Tonks of Music City to reach his musical dream, Jeffrey Krantz kept writing, touring, and released “The Pennock Tapes” (2017) and his second album, “Misty Morning Dew.” The band “Krantz” brings a psychedelic/pop/rock edge equipped with an in-your-face attitude, intertwining meaningful lyrics, and authentic, no-holds rock and roll. As an alternative rock band in a land of country music, Krantz embraces a refreshing take on golden age rock acts, combining classic musical elements of The Beatles and T. Rex with more modern sounds of bands like Weezer and Green Day, creating whimsical and catchy melodies that are certain make your feet dance and heart throb.

“We’ve actually been sitting on this song for a while now. With everything happening in the world today, it just seemed that now would be a good time to unleash it. It’s meant to be a battle cry that empowers us and says, ‘we will overcome anything that comes our way. We are STRONGER than everything we face.’ I think it’s more fitting now than we would like to admit. We all hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and strong.” – Jimmy Wooten

Gears Promo Final Edits 55 1 of 1

Miami based hard/heavy rock act GEARS isn’t your average start-up garage band. Despite being confronted with a near disastrous setback at the cusp of their debut, headlining tour, jarring line-up changes, and financial challenges, the band has persevered and rebuilt.

Founded in February 2014, Trip 6 (Urban Rebel), Eli Parker (Endo), Tommy Herres (SCARLET CARSON) and Jimmy Wooten (SKINMASK) were all looking for new projects as their old ones had run their course.

“We all wanted to do something more modern, but still rang true to our influences. Something that we could aggressively market and tour on. So, we all met up in Miami after months of talking about doing something together and what came out was the first EP, Set in Motion.”

They released Set in Motion in May 2014, immediately launching into their first headline run with support from I-Exist. Just three days into the tour, their equipment trailer disconnected, resulting in a massive, horrific accident; not only did they lose their gear, but the tour van was totaled and the band members sustained serious injury. In spite of this tremendous blow, the group endured and continued the tour without missing a beat.

Later it developed that two of the founding members were unable to continue, leaving the band reeling and having to replace them with skilled, compatible substitutes:

“I was talking with a mutual friend, Joe Taback (12 Gauge Embrace) about needing a guitar player for GEARS because we let go of Eli and he suggested Bobby Thomas. I called him and showed him the songs and he was ready to go. As far as bass, I knew Chris from when Needlemouth was a thing out in Cali and I always liked his playing and he was super laid back & cool. I knew both of these dudes were definite upgrades at their instruments and were a better fit personality wise than what we had to deal with previously.”

In June 2015, Wooten and Six teamed with Corey Lowery (Saint AsoniaStuck MojoStereomudDark New Day) and Troy Mclawhorn (EvanescenceSeetherDark New Day) on their new EP, Pride Comes Before the Fall, and announced the addition of new members Bobby Thomas and Chris Dorame. They hit the road for their Riser Tour, once again with I-Exist, in July, wrapping up the run in September, but kept the momentum going with the digital release and lyric video for their debut single off of Pride Comes Before the Fall, “Face Down”. The band rounded out the year with the release of their much anticipated sophomore EP on November 10th, with both headlining tours and a support slot with Trapt slated for 2017.

After a very successful tour in 2017 with Seasons After and Bridge to Grace, GEARS has released a new single and video for “KING.” Once again, joined by Corey Lowery in the studio, GEARS continues to evolve. Boasting an even heavier sound with groove and aggression, they set out for Headlining Dates as well as Support Slots with NonpointUpon a Burning Body and will round out their 2018 Summer/Fall Tour Dates with the last of 3 legs with All That Remains concluding at the end of September.

After touring much of 2018 with All That Remains, GEARS shifted focus to releasing more music. Their first 2019, “TANGO YANKEE,” featured LAJON WITHERSPOON of SEVENDUST.

In October of 2019, GEARS premiered and released their cover of “CULT OF PERSONALTIY” featuring the vocalist of the original version, Corey Glover of LIVING COLOUR! Drummer, Jimmy Wooten, says about the experience of recording the iconic song, “‘CULT OF PERSONALITY’ is a song that we always wanted to cover. That groove, that riff, the vocals, lyrical content… everything about it has always stuck out to us and been a personal favorite. To have the opportunity to not only record a song that is important to us, but to have Corey Glover himself come in and perform on that track, it was truly a special moment. He was so easy and fun to work with and the final product is really something that we are extremely proud of. I think the challenge for us, as with any cover song, was to put our spin on the iconic song, but not change it too much to where you lose the heart and emotion behind the original recording. Having Corey and Trip on vocals was a cool way for us to try to achieve that. They sound great together and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to do this!”

GEARS is currently in the studio with Corey Lowery working on some more new music and will have upcoming tour dates to announce for 2020 soon.

We’re still moving forward and, despite everything that has been an obstacle in the short time we’ve been a band, everything still keeps growing and getting better.

RATCHET DOLLS Release Official Lyric Video for “Parasite!”

Parasite Artwork

Brownsville, TX rock band RATCHET DOLLS has released a new single titled “Parasite!” through independent label, EarRiot Records. From catchy vocal chants to groovy riffs and ripping solos, “Parasite” introduces a new sound to the band that will cater to both current and fresh listeners across the rock spectrum.

Player

“Although the song has a very uplifting feel, the lyrics themselves are rather dark. “Parasite!” speaks to us from the perspective of a person who’s mental health has deteriorated from trying to meet the standards of a non-committed partner. One-sided relationships can lead to vulnerability… My goal is to try to help prevent others from having to walk that road; even if it’s just one person.”

Visualizer

I think that “Falling” is me finding myself as an artist, and you can hear the evolution of my songwriting. I actually broke down into tears while recording the vocals for this track, which was a first for me, and that’s when I knew this song was special. I love the fact that I got to bring so many different influences into this song. It’s a great reference for what’s to come with my official debut album later this year.” – KYLE PFEIFFER

Band

After years of Eric Boyce begging his girlfriend Shannon Plumley to sing for him and a request from his mother to perform any other genre than metal, The Huntrs performed 2 original songs at a talent show in Petersburg, Va. June 2014. After having a great time and receiving standing ovation it was decided to continue furthering this new musical endeavor. Even without many performances the name spread through local benefit shows and house show parties. For years the songwriting continued as the search for the perfect lineup of members finally came to a conclusion in 2019 when Eric Boyce and Shannon Plumley added Mario Crawley and Stephen Zaruba. The first edition of Mario came clear to Eric after experiencing his talent and devotion in a local metal act. The addition of the drummer, Stephen, was ironically suggested by Eric’s mother, Julie, who coincidentally worked with Stephen’s mother. With a full lineup 2019 was a busy year with learning and rehearsing and almost twenty-five song original setlist. February 2020, The Huntrs released their first professionally recorded single Locked And Loaded with a second single, released on St. Patrick’s Day, close behind.
