Crop-Magnolia-Bayou-Train-Dont-Stop-

Mississippi based, Southern Blues / Rock Band MAGNOLIA BAYOU has released the official music video for their new, heavy rock single, “Train Don’t Stop”. Recorded at Natchez Sound Studio, produced by Burne Sharp, and mixed by Jacquire King/Nashville, “Train Don’t Stop” premiered on ROCK & BLUES MUSE.

“A couple of years ago, we had some issues with band personnel. We promptly had a meeting to rectify the issues. During that meeting, our manager made the statement “This train don’t stop for anyone or anything.” Being floored by that statement, singer Drew Fulton jotted it down in his notes for potential use in a future song. Fast forward to 2020 and a worldwide pandemic took the world by storm. The lyric “This Train Don’t Stop” just kept knocking on our door. This song is the 2021 anthem for the people who have just had enough. Despite the odds, we won’t stop.” – MAGNOLIA BAYOU

“’Train Don’t Stop’ proves that rock and roll is still very much alive, at least in the hands of Magnolia Bayou. When these four plug in and play, you can’t help but believe in them. If you live for loud, passionate blues/rock, you’re going to want to get behind this band and this song. Do yourself a solid and get onboard right now!” – ROCK & BLUES MUSE

Forged in the heart of a Mississippi swamp, Magnolia Bayou’s sound is appropriately reminiscent of the golden age of Rock N Roll, and it is simultaneously flavored with a heavy, southern swagger that is distinctively theirs. Their bluesy aura can be traced back to the group’s origins, where they submerged and steeped themselves in their home state’s profound musical wealth; covering the likes of Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Son House and so many more.

Like their musical forefathers, the band spent three years blazing their way through juke joints along the Mississippi Blues trail, before independently recording their debut album in 2018. After its release, they spent the last three years extensively touring the surrounding south, traveling as far as the midwest and the pacific northeast. In that time, they’ve supported many acts such as Whiskey Myers, Wet Willie, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Fantastic Negrito, Tyler Childers, Ian Moore, Aaron Lewis, Bishop Gunn, Black Stone Cherry and most recently Buckcherry. They are set to open for Nightranger at the annual HWY 30 music fest in Filer Idaho on June 24th, of 2021.

In May of 2019, Magnolia Bayou set out to record their follow up album, Strange Place, at Natchez Sound Studio with Bishop Gunn’s very own Burne Sharp at the helm. The record is now available everywhere.

“Echoes of The Rolling Stones, Hendrix & early Aerosmith that come roaring out of your speaker… Strange Place is a transcendent blast of Rock & Roll with Southern Swagger and by any measure, Magnolia Bayou is one of the most crucial bands blowing up in the USA right now” – Rock & Blues Muse

SHARONE Releases Official Music Video for “Diamond”

167467765 130479132418560 2963784344082424676 n

Denver based, Dark Rock artist SHARONE has released the official music video for the fourth and final single, “Diamond,” off of her upcoming LP, Morbid Illusion, due out May 28, 2021 via Devil Inside Records. Directed by Kyle Lamar, and SHARONE herself, “Diamond” features Johnny Romero on drums, Zach Barrera on bass, and Spencer Simpson and Travis Owen on guitar.

Player

“When I wrote ‘Diamond’, I was trying to remain hopeful in a hopeless situation. I learned that the effort you put forth in those types of instances can cause serious damage to your soul and your mind. Sometimes when we feel lost we try to convince ourselves that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. ‘Diamond’ is about realizing that light doesn’t exist.” – SHARONE

Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s BellesStitched Up Heart, and Puddle Of Mudd. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live with a full rock band backing her. 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. In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album ‘Storm’. Following the release, dove deeper into her writing, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: ‘Enchiridion of Nightmares’ (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality. 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. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.” –The Ringmaster Review

unnamed 2

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.

“D.N.A.” is also dominating German and French charts, sitting comfortably on Rock Antenne FM’s‘ top 20 and hitting top 10 in the Heavy 1 French radio chart.

“A blistering and hook filled bit of gleaming modern metal, it manages to perfectly mesh heaviness with melody that shows a maturity way beyond most of their peers.

With a superb production, this just doesn’t pop out of the speakers, it practically roars, the Highland passion in full flow and Celtic fire blazing.” – Metal Planet Magazine

Player

Released on March 5th, Against The Wall achieved the UK national album chart at number 19, taking a coveted top 20 album position, and reached over 750,000 streams on Spotify. The long awaited album, which received critical acclaim from both media and fans alike, also hit number 1 in the UK rock album chart. It is the first time a rock band has debuted with their album in the UK Top 20 since Greta Van Fleet in 2018 and also the first time a British rock act as debuted with their album in the UK Top 20 and # 1 in the UK rock album chart since Royal Blood and Lonely The Brave back in 2014!

It is an incredible achievement for new British rock band, starting from an almost zero sales base and during a pandemic when there has been no traditional retail, no live shows or touring opportunities. The innovative marketing campaign run by both 7Hz Productions (ADA) and the band involved a six month fan building initiative utilizing the band’s social platforms, streaming performances, virtual ‘in store’ launch events, dark ad audience building and strategic media take over promotions. Coupled with very positive press reviews, online reviews, regional radio support, and four Planet Rock playlist additions, the band’s new album has connected musically with rock fans resulting in a surge of sales.

The band is set to release their next digital single, a cover of the 2005 Foo Fighters hit “The Best Of You,” all platforms on April 23, 2021.

03 Mason HIll Mask Shot 1

To trace the Mason Hill story to its origin, Scott Taylor and James Bird met at school in Glasgow. At the age of 14, Bird was already an accomplished, award-winning, gifted guitar prodigy, who’d shared a stage with Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society man Zakk Wylde, a personal hero, toured across the UK, and secured endorsements from leading music brands. The teenage Taylor already harboured dreams of fronting a rock ’n’ roll band, and the pair’s friendship and shared aspirations led them to form a band. In 2013 the pair formed Mason Hill, adding drummer Craig McFetridge, bassist Matthew Ward, and guitarist Marc Montgomery in due course. Five diverse, colourful characters, the members of the group were instantly bonded by a shared, singular vision for their band: Taylor relinquished long-held plans to become an Olympic swimmer in order to focus on music, while Ward withdrew from a degree course at the University of Glasgow, where he’d been studying microbiology/virology. For these ambitious young men, Mason Hill was and is priority number one.

Mason Hill are Scott Taylor (Lead Vocals), James Bird (Lead Guitar), Marc Montgomery (Guitar), Matthew Ward (Bass) and Craig McFetridge (Drums)

THE STORY SO FAR
Mason Hill has spent their formative years “learning their craft” on stages up and down the UK. This included high profile shows supporting the likes of Graham Bonnet (Rainbow), Snakecharmer (feat. ex-Whitesnake, Thunder & Wishbone Ash members), Toseland, Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, The Dead Daisies) and Stone Broken.

“this is the best new heavy rock act currently performing in the UK.” (Fabrications HQ)

“a prodigious talent that belies their fledgling years.” (Planet Rock)

In December 2015 the band released their debut E.P, the self titled Mason Hill, featuring four tracks which highlighted exactly why this band are turning heads – outstanding songs that demonstrated a maturity far beyond their years. Recorded at The Foundry Music Lab with Sandy Jones (Wet Wet Wet) in the producer’s chair, the EP has been critically acclaimed amongst the music press and fans alike.

2016 brought several breakthroughs in the band’s career, firstly the invitation to perform on The Rising Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair, headlined by Whitesnake and Black Stone Cherry, winning the UK wide Highway To Hell battle of the bands competition that earned them opening the main stage slot at Hard Rock Hell, alongside the likes of Ugly Kid JoeRatt, and Glenn Hughes, appearing at Winterstorm Festival, alongside the likes of Ricky WarwickLast in Line (ex-Dio) and Inglorious to selling out their first ever headline show at the famous Cathouse Rock Club in Glasgow with one month left to spare – a feat only achieved in recent times by Anthrax and Black Stone Cherry.

The career progression continued into early 2017 when the band was special guest to Inglorious in London at their sold out second album launch show, appeared triumphantly at Download on The Boardie Takeover Stage, opened for Airbourne at their sold out show in Edinburgh. and returned to their hometown for their second headline show at G2; again this sold out with demand so great that it was upgraded to the 750 capacity The Garage where the likes of MagnumTesla, and Symphony X have performed – packing the place to the rafters

The first promo video “’Now You See Me” was released in 2017, which to date has more than a quarter of a million views.

The year ended with support for GUN at Glasgow Barrowlands in December plus an appearance at Planet Rockstock:

“Fresh-faced Glasgow boys Mason Hill were nothing short of a triumph. Completely packing out the room, they served up a rock and roll storm from the offset with anthems like ‘Now You See Me’ before showing off another side of their art with powerful closer ‘Where I Belong’ that delved into rock ballad territory. In fact, the Planet Rockstock faithful were so won over we’ve been inundated with requests for Mason Hill to be bumped up the bill in 2018” (Planet Rock)

The band spent a lot of time developing material for their album and the first show of 2018 was at Glasgow’s King Tuts which sold out in three days, ten weeks in advance of show!

Ladies and gentlemen – Mason Hill are back with fire in their belly. This group of high achievers carry the pressure of early success but as they take to the stage to the intro tape, it is obvious they have class and confidence…” (Down The Front Media)

“There are few up and coming acts in Scotland that have made a notable impression as swiftly as Glasgow rockers Mason Hill. They have grown in popularity and garnered an insane following like nothing else” (SMS, Scotland)

“Mason Hill never disappoint, in fact they always take it to the next level every time you see them” (Jace Media)

This was followed by an appearance at TRNSMT on the same day as Queen, and Steelhouse Festival in Wales alongside such as Black Star Riders, Glenn Hughes and, Myles Kennedy.

The latter part of 2018 saw Mason Hill going out on tour supporting The Dan Reed Network at shows across the UK and a return to Planet Rockstock, by popular demand after their performance in 2017, this time on the main stage.

In a further development Mason Hill agreed to part ways with Frontiers Records.

A further sold out King Tuts show followed in 2019 and a sub headline slot at Planet Rock’s Winters End in February 2020. Since then live activity has been curtailed by the covid 19 pandemic, in common with every other band. However the band has not been idle and the focus has been on the debut album, recorded at Riverside Studios near Glasgow and vocals in New York, and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo FightersBiffy Clyro).

In 2020 the band signed a management contract with Jaba Music and a record deal with 7Hz Productions, and the album release date is planned for 5 March 2021. Three singles have so far been released to date from the album to critical acclaim.

2021 promises to be a big year for Mason Hill, despite on going restrictions.

Mason Hill are just getting started!

For ‘Oh Sugar’ we knew we wanted to capture the fun vibes that the song portrayed and to do that, we didn’t have to look any further than our hometown. A bar / arcade (or “barcade”, if you will) right in our hometown of Rock Hill, SC – Player 1 Up – was the perfect location. Filled with classic arcade games, many representing the bands that influence our own music, the venue is saturated with rich colors that really made this video pop. Over two riotous days of shooting, we put together what you see in the final video!” – DALLAS DWIGHT

These tracks are an anthem for those who fly the flag of the New Wave of Classic Rock. It’s an ode to living fast and loose. But most of all, it’s a call to arms for rock n’ roll fans everywhere to stand up, get loud, and to never let the music die without a hell of a fight.

“Overall, The Ride is a well-constructed album which caters for more than just the average rock fan. The culmination of songs over time isn’t usually the way bands compile an album, but in this case, it has worked to great effect. They’ve been patient, streamlining their best material for this release. All I can hope is that they achieve similar online success to what they received a few years back, so that they have something to build on once they can return to playing live.” – MMH Radio

“With a soft and soothing voice, Guiles’ guitar work matches the delicate melody of Freeman’s vocals on the final and title track ‘The Ride.’ A tempo change midway through breathes new life into the song, a soundtrack you could kickass to. Stabs of machine-gunning double kick drums hint at more skilful capabilities, before switching back to a slower end to the record and ending with the profound lyric, “ticking clock upon the shelf, and tallies on the wall.” Small Town Titans have their hands in numerous cookie jars, yet the cookies they pull out are made with their own unique recipes borrowed and mixed from others’, keeping The Ride fresh and ballsy. ” – *NOIZZE*

The Small Town Titans are an American rock n’ roll power trio from York, Pennsylvania, 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 rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, 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 for their fans is as important as playing great live shows.

The band was formed on May 4, 2011 at Lebanon Valley College, where Phil, Ben, and Jonny all met, and had finally decided to jam together towards the end of Phil’s senior year . Phil and Jonny had been close friends for years prior to the band’s first jam session, with Ben and Jonny also having known each other and staying in touch throughout school since freshman year. After playing together, it didn’t take long for the group to decide to start playing shows live locally. The name “Small Town Titans” had been in Phil’s back pocket for years, and he had finally found the band that fit the name. It didn’t take long for the group to grow a very loyal local fanbase, as they continued to hone their live performance chops, playing clubs on weekends and mixing their original material with covers of classic and modern rock songs. Soon after, the band began to take their career more seriously. They decided to hit the road full time, and began to release more material, and plenty of music videos.

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 SalesRock Digital Song SalesEmerging 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. That success continues into this decade with songs such as “The Man”, “Universal Limits” and “Rufflin’ Feathers” all landing on playlists such as Spotify’s Hard RockNew Metal Tracks, and Hot Road TripApple Music’s New in Rock, and YouTube Music’s Maximum Decibels.

As a newly signed act to AntiFragile Music, the band is releasing their first album with a record label, The Ride,. Under the tutelage of label owner and music industry veteran Tom Sarig (Nine Inch NailsBlink-182Sammy Hagar), the new album shows STT pushing into more musical directions than ever before, from the Queen inspired “Behind The Moon”, to the angsty and aggressive “When It All Comes Down”. “Rufflin’ Feathers” delivers a tongue-in-cheek message about today’s social media circus, while “9 To 5”, the album’s ballad, has more country crossover appeal than anything else in their catalog. “Sex and Candy”, a Marcy Playground cover, brings the blues, while “The Ride” title track showcases plenty of musicality, and an evolution to the band’s sound. There are plenty of big, loud hooks throughout, all the while without losing the edge of a rock n’ roll band who sounds just as good live as they do on their recordings.

With the help of AntiFragile Music, Small Town Titans have managed to find continued success by simply never forgetting one thing, their fans, both new and old. After asking their fans to vote on their fanbase name, they decided on calling themselves the Titan Army. As the Titan Army grows, so does the band right along with them. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with plenty of stage banter in between songs, and no two shows ever being the same. 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 SuspectPapa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

Italy based, alternative rock quartet A CRIME CALLED has released the official music video for “Drown,” off of their newly released album, A New Path.

“’Drown’ is the result of an intercontinental travel; tthe video is shot in a former asylum, and the images give a feeling of abandonment and claustrophobia, which works against the meaning of the song. The concept is to resist, to try not to drown, maybe finding someone who is a salvation and a hope for you.” – A CRIME CALLED

“Drown” was produced by Dan Korneff (ParamorePierce The VeilPapa Roach) and Giuseppe “Dualized” Bassi (Fear FactoryMnemic) and was mastered by Ted Jensen (Bring Me The HorizonGreen DayDeftones) at Sterling Sound Studios.

“Life is an ocean current of situations, people, sensations. Navigation, solitary as it may be, has its difficult moments which lead us to give up and desist. The destination is often only a necessary excuse to keep on traveling, to not die inside. Living is the only means we were bestowed to avoid being drowned by the current”. – Andrea Verdi (front-man)

The music alternates back and forth from heavy to sparse in an almost agitated way as to depict the emotional rollercoaster of the lyric.

As pertaining to the comic, ‘Kill this Love’ depicts the inner struggle of the protagonist September as she looks back on her battle with Fate and the strange pull he seems to have over her.

“’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

LA Based, 5 piece band FUSED BY DEFIANCE has released the official music video for their single, “Cancel Culture.” Originally premiered on GHOST CULT MAGAZINE, “Cancel Culture” was directed and edited by Ron Underwood.

player

“Cancel culture is a powerful weapon that when used appropriately, has the power to take down disgusting human-beings in less than 140 characters; something most court systems can’t manage to do in 140 days. But like a vigilante with no moral code or restraint, it can easily tip toward the dark-side. This song talks about the inappropriate usage of cancel culture. Metaphorically, a virus in the system; that searches through a person’s past and finds the one thing that may be able to bring them down as a petty response or knee jerk reaction to a human occasion. What cancel culture in this instance fails to take into account is the fallibility of humanity. Within this cycle is a tale of growth through experience which in current times are posted for public review. We are all human and all make mistakes, however only in the fallacy of stagnation does cancel culture become its own demise.” – FUSED BY DEFIANCE

Pontus Press Image 1

People make music to get a reaction. Music is communication.” – Yoko Ono

If there is truth in that statement, then perhaps the true measure of a musician is the reaction and response his or her music gets. Pontus Gunve has garnered quite a few reviews over the years that can be an indication of that relationship. It’s a great place to start in understanding Pontus Gunve and his group PHWG.

Pete Feenstra at Get Ready to Rock said, “Pontus has a keen sense of the musical possibilities his impressionist style offers him.” Translated from Swedish, Jan-Erik Zandersson said this in Nya Upplaga, “Musically, this is a kind of progressive post-rock with a historical focus.” In a review of Gunve’s latest disc, Andrew Metzgler of Mountain Weekly News said, “The only way I can describe The Observer is by comparing it to Pink FloydBeats AntiqueUmphrey’s McGeeQueen, and The John Butler Trio (2006 period)…Take elements from all of those bands, combine them with a few classic instruments and you can have an inkling as to what Pontus HW Gunve is bringing to the table.”

So, where does Pontus Gunve come from? The simple answer is New York City. That’s only the geographical location for his current stop on the musical journey that is his life, though. Gunve grew up in Sweden and was first fully gripped by his passion for music there when he saw Jean Michel Jarre’s Rendezvous Houston: A City in Concert on television as a child. Blown away by Jarre’s all-encompassing high-tech stage show and the endless layers of his album Oxygene, he began to explore the capabilities of computers to create different sounds and textures. His fascination with rock music led him to electric guitar, which he began to study voraciously, simultaneously imagining ways to expand its boundaries. At the same time, he experimented with sequencing and learned how to build computer and synthesizer modules that could be used practically during performances and on recordings.

Pontus Gunve’s music embraces the theory that music is a multi-dimensional experience and an adventure in wordless storytelling that fully absorbs the audience’s mind, body and spirit. Flowing through time and space, the lush sonic textures he creates evoke the ethereal landscapes of other-worldly multi-media artists such as Jean Michel Jarre and Boards of Canada while still clearly inspired by the thick, dark compositional textures of legendary heavy metal bands like Megadeth. And his energy as a guitarist celebrates numerous influences, from the technical proficiency of Steve Vai and the raw, exotic approach of Marty Friedman, to the minimalistic moments created by legendary blues performers. Gunve’s finely-tuned skills in the studio as both a producer and engineer allow him to seamlessly unify many different musical styles and a wide range of instruments into intricately-crafted, mesmerizing recordings resonating with unexpected surprises.

Of course, again, looking to reviewers can give us more insight into that sound. AtMusic Street Journal, Jason Hillenburg said of Gunve’s latest disc, “There are few musicians in the mold of Pontus Gunve. Rarely content to rely on the traditional, but instead plundering it for his own uses, Gunve brings a European sensibility to dense, intensely musical instrumentals. His album, The Observer, ranks as one of the most challenging and, ultimately, rewarding releases of the year.” Scott Kahn had this to say of the single “Cavalry of Camels” at MusicPlayers.com: “World Music meets Prog Metal in the latest single from Pontus Gunve. This is big orchestral stuff that rocks thanks to the solid guitar and drums anchoring the complex rhythms. The percussion and string section really give the music its international, ethnic vibe… Melodic, rocking, beautifully produced… I’m not fully sure how we’d categorize it, but we definitely enjoy listening to it.” At Mr. Music ChroniclesLarry Toering said, “There is just no describing the sheer quality on offer here. It’s something one must hear for themselves to really dig into properly, so it comes highly recommended…If you like your music laid back and intense at the same time, with an eastern vibe that won’t quit, this is right up your alley. In fact, to me it’s so awesome that I will be not only recommending for years to come, I will be following this artist’s progress from here out.”

Ludwig Von Beethoven said, “Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life. “ Gunve translates his sensual impressions of the universe into intricate, personal and melodic musical passages that vividly illustrate his life’s rich and complex journey and allow him to connect powerfully with his own musicians, the audience and with each space he performs. He has composed music and worked as a sound designer for a wide range of independent films and Web projects as well as for various large-scale art projects in Sweden. He founded his own instrumental project, PHWG in 2007, a group that combines video, electronic instruments, cello, violin, drums and tabla/darbuka. With that group he has released Four full albums and ONE EP, Black Hole BBQ (2019), IV (EP – 2016), The Observer (2013), Movements (2008), and Great Wall of Sound (2006).

“‘Wake the Dead’ is an anthemic track that dispels the nature of the herd mentality in our society today. 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

American Rock band FAITH & SCARS has released the official music video for “Rain.” Directed by Jaiden Hord Frost, “Rain” is off of their sophomore album, Revolver.

Player

“This was the 1st video we filmed for Revolver, and it was a blast! In a lot of ways, filming this video was a dream come true. We spend a lot of time dreaming about what it would’ve been like to have a band in the MTV days, so it only made sense to set the video in that vision. The song itself was heavily influenced by the sounds of the 80’s & we’re so excited to have a video that matches that vibe. We did our absolute best to pay homage to Slash & Guns n’ Roses by recreating (to the best of our ability) the November Rain solo. It was so great to be able to pay homage to those who paved the way for us, & throw ourselves into their image. We really hope you dig it! Keep the Faith.” – FAITH & SCARS

Faith Scars High Res Band Photo 1

Faith & Scars is an American Rock band. With members hailing from all around the US, (North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida) they are currently based out of Selma, NC. They come at you with a southern flare and a touch of soul. Even through their most difficult times, Faith & Scars has found a way to stick together; bound by their mantra: Keep the Faith.

The band states: “We’ve found that if you hold faith in something, and hold it tight – be it your dreams, family, a significant other, yourself, or God – You’ll find yourself possessing a force that will push you to be the best that you can be.”

Faith & Scars has a profound love for music and finds inspiration through many bands & artists. They proudly wear their 90’s-2000’s rock influence on their sleeves, yet distinctly display classic sounds comparative to Guns n RosesJimi Hendrix, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Blended all together, you get a sound that can be compared to bands such as ShinedownBon Jovi & Black Stone Cherry.

The band adds, “We just want to be the best we can be, and have a good time doing it. It’s a lot of hard work, and sometimes heartache to keep a band together, but if we can touch someone with a lyric, or affect anyone in a positive way by doing what we do… then we’ve done our job. We aim to put on the best show we can every time we step onto a stage. Whether it’s 2,000 people, or 2 people and the bartender – we play every show like it’s a sold out stadium.”

“We’re finding our way as an independent band. We’re working hard to reinvent ourselves at every step of the way. We believe we have done that with this record. We have full faith in Revolver, and we’re proud to have a product that we can stand behind. Our sights are set & we’re about to take our shot. We just hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do.”

We are Faith & Scars and this is Revolver”.

Lehighton, PA Hard Alternative Rock Band ANOTHER DAY DAWNS has released the official music video for their single, “Never Ok,” off of their recently released EP, Stranger. Directed by Cyrus Entezam, the track was produced by 900 Management and 900 Records.

Player

“I wanted to get the message out to people that everyone has their own daily struggles. It’s something that needs to be addressed whether we see it or not. I think everyone should hear this. It’s okay to not be okay 100% of the time. I feel that’s what makes the people who are wanting to reach out for help or to talk to a really awkward spot because we put all the focus on that. It’s not ok to point at the fact at how weird they are or different they are, let alone ourselves. There’s gonna be days where we wish we didn’t wake up but we have to push through that mental block that keeps fighting us. The message I wanted to get with this song is, you’re not alone. Many of us hide our problems from society and I think that’s something we as people should help each other more with. Our minds can be a scary place sometimes and all we need is that little bit of comfort to feel alright “ – DAKOTA SEAN

“Pennsylvania’s Small Town Titans reignite the fire of rock and roll and let it burn brightly on the band’s new album The Ride. Set to drop November 13th, 2020 on AntiFragile Music, the record is one of the best rock releases of our current era and shows us all just how much life is left in the primordial power trio format. ” – Rock & Blues Muse

“One-hundred percent killer with absolutely zero filler, The Ride is an incredible display of modern rock that builds on the active rock style of the past two decades and infuses it with a much needed rejuvenating shot that returns a raw sense of danger and primal excitement to the genre.” – SPILL MAGAZINE

The Ride press photo 3

The Small Town Titans are an American rock n’ roll power trio from York, Pennsylvania, 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 rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, 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 for their fans is as important as playing great live shows.

The band was formed on May 4, 2011 at Lebanon Valley College, where Phil, Ben, and Jonny all met, and had finally decided to jam together towards the end of Phil’s senior year . Phil and Jonny had been close friends for years prior to the band’s first jam session, with Ben and Jonny also having known each other and staying in touch throughout school since freshman year. After playing together, it didn’t take long for the group to decide to start playing shows live locally. The name “Small Town Titans” had been in Phil’s back pocket for years, and he had finally found the band that fit the name. It didn’t take long for the group to grow a very loyal local fanbase, as they continued to hone their live performance chops, playing clubs on weekends and mixing their original material with covers of classic and modern rock songs. Soon after, the band began to take their career more seriously. They decided to hit the road full time, and began to release more material, and plenty of music videos.

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 SalesRock Digital Song SalesEmerging 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. That success continues into this decade with songs such as “The Man”, “Universal Limits” and “Rufflin’ Feathers” all landing on playlists such as Spotify’s Hard RockNew Metal Tracks, and Hot Road TripApple Music’s New in Rock, and YouTube Music’s Maximum Decibels.

As a newly signed act to AntiFragile Music, the band is releasing their first album with a record label, The Ride,. Under the tutelage of label owner and music industry veteran Tom Sarig (Nine Inch NailsBlink-182Sammy Hagar), the new album shows STT pushing into more musical directions than ever before, from the Queen inspired “Behind The Moon”, to the angsty and aggressive “When It All Comes Down”. “Rufflin’ Feathers” delivers a tongue-in-cheek message about today’s social media circus, while “9 To 5”, the album’s ballad, has more country crossover appeal than anything else in their catalog. “Sex and Candy”, a Marcy Playground cover, brings the blues, while “The Ride” title track showcases plenty of musicality, and an evolution to the band’s sound. There are plenty of big, loud hooks throughout, all the while without losing the edge of a rock n’ roll band who sounds just as good live as they do on their recordings.

With the help of AntiFragile Music, Small Town Titans have managed to find continued success by simply never forgetting one thing, their fans, both new and old. After asking their fans to vote on their fanbase name, they decided on calling themselves the Titan Army. As the Titan Army grows, so does the band right along with them. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with plenty of stage banter in between songs, and no two shows ever being the same. 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 SuspectPapa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

A PRIMITIVE EVOLUTION Releases Official Music Video for “Ghost”

APE 2020 - Dash Revery HD

Toronto, ON based Dark Alternative Rock Band A PRIMITIVE EVOLUTION, fronted by The Birthday Massacre bassist Brett Carruthers, has released the official music video for “Ghost,” off of the band’s latest album, Becoming. Directed by Terra Joy McNerthney and produced by long time collaborator and friend Bailey Northcott, “Ghost” was originally premiered on tastemaker site mxdwn.

A song about love and loss, inspired by the shared grieving process of filial death, the video for “Ghost” takes place in a desolate, post-apocalyptic dreamscape where two lone survivors search for connection. Radio waves call to them, but what will they find at the source of the signal?

“’Ghost’ was a song we took a chance on. We’d never written an epic long piece like this before and it really helped seal the album together for us. I wrote this song when I was having a lot of dreams of my father who we lost when I was 14. Funny how certain years these “ghosts”seem to come back and haunt you. Often times you almost feel as though they’re communicating with you or something along those lines. It’s a really beautiful moment where you feel like you’re with them again, the disappointment is waking up to reality.” – A PRIMITIVE EVOLUTION

player

“The song opens with an atmospheric, The Edge-esque guitar riff and lead singer Brett Carruthers’ singing in a hushed tone. As the song progresses through the first verse, he appears in the video, sitting besides a vintage car playing a beat up acoustic guitar. “Ghost” continues to add musical elements as it progresses and after a few minutes has morphed from an sparse arrangement to a shoegaze-inspired wall of sound with distorted guitars, a shuffling drum beat from Stu Dead and moody synth tones. The song maintains this dynamic between quiet and loud, though the most intense portion of the song comes at the end when the trio launch into an extended jam, moving into a more hard-rock inspired sound with Carruthers concluding the passage with a fiery guitar solo.” – Matt Matasci – mxdwn

Out of the primordial soup comes A Primitive Evolution (A.P.E.). Given the gift of sentience, they are here to create a constantly evolving soundtrack to our world with their dark, alternative rock music. With its current release of full length recording “Becoming” the bands next mutation is underway. Recorded at their self-built Desolation Studios in Toronto, ON the album features collaborations with Writer / Producer Ian D’Sa (Billy Talent) and Audio Engineer Kenny Luong (MetricCancer Bats). In partnership with Metropolis Records, the band and label unleashed Becoming together, worldwide on October 5th. 2018. Known to be raw and visceral, with soul and beauty: A Primitive Evolution is best consumed at extremely loud volumes!

Awarded “Best Rock Band” by the 2015 Toronto Independent Music Awards, A Primitive Evolution has toured extensively, showcased at prestigious festivals CMWNXNE & Indie Week Canada and received strong support from Canadian Music Industry stalwarts Alan Cross (CFNY 102.1 The Edgeajournalofmusicalthings.com) and George Stroumboulopoulos (MuchMusicCBC).

Pulling together a complex array of influences including Nine Inch NailsMuseThe CureToolThe ProdigyMinistryRadioheadU2VivaldiAlice in ChainsGuns N’ Roses and more, A Primitive Evolution’s rhythm-based attack blurs the lines of rock, electronica and all aspects between.

“Creation is evolution” observes A.P.E. singer Brett Carruthers, “that’s what I figure we’re trying to say with A Primitive Evolution. As evolved as we think we are as humans or animals, we are very much at the beginning of the evolution of mankind. We have so much to learn and yet so much has changed in the last hundred years. We have a long way to go as a species. We want our band to reflect that too, showing our raw emotions, doing it out of instinct and evolving naturally; not overthinking, just having some fun existing on this planet.”

IAN ABEL Releases Official Music Video for “All for Love”

IanAbelCover AllForLove alt

L.A. Based Singer / Songwriter IAN ABEL has released the official music video for his new single, “All for Love.” Filmed at the Troubadour on May 31st, 2019, by Mitch Parks, “All for Love” is the artist’s fifth studio release.

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

Ian Abel Band is a rock outfit made up of accomplished young musicians in Los Angeles, California. Lead singer, guitar player and primary song-writer, Ian Abel, formed the band with no purpose other than creating new and fresh music for Rock N Roll fans everywhere.

Originally from Louisville Kentucky, Ian Abel, connected with New York drummer, Kenny Schwartz, and high school friend, Westray Tackett, in Los Angeles in early 2017. Together with the help of their friend and master audio engineer, Jon Graber, they began tracking an 11 song album in 2018 at United Recording.

The first song released from that recording session, titled “Shoes”, was licensed in May of 2019 to All Elite Wresting for a promotional video for the historic fight between Cody & Dustin Rhodes at the company’s inaugural pay-per-view, Double or Nothing.

Since then, Ian Abel Band added bassist Karthik Suresh, played the world famous Troubadour and released their 3rd successful single “Outlaw”. Big guitars, big drums and even bigger hooks. That’s what the Ian Abel Band is all about.
