SUPERJOINT Premieres New Track At Revolver Magazine

unnamed-5SUPERJOINT was resurrected in 2015 after the original band broke up a decade earlier. At the behest of the late Corey Mitchell, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, SUPERJOINT founders Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem et al), Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), and Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al) joined forces with longtime comrades, drummer José “Blue” Gonzalez (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals) and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power). A new era of the band was born.
Mitchell’s idea worked brilliantly, as the band members found true joy in playing together again. After just two tours, new material followed culminating in the scathing sounds of Caught Up In The Gears Of Application. Set for release on November 11th, 2016 via Anselmo’s own Housecore Records,Caught Up In The Gears Of Application was captured at Nodferatu’s Lair and marks the band’s first new output since 2003’s critically-lauded Lethal Dose Of American Hatred. Produced by Anselmo and Stephen Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole etc.) and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sounds, Caught Up In The Gears Of Application remains true to SUPERJOINT‘s original strategy: to spew forth an acrimonious crossover of hardcore punk, metal, and unrelenting, hostile, New Orleans-style angst.
“The minute we started writing, I knew this record would be brutal,” reflects Bower, “Sticking to our true hardcore roots and signature SUPERJOINT sound, we accomplished a record that needed to happen in today’s underground. It’s pissed off! After being on hiatus for eleven-plus years, the chance at a new SUPERJOINT record wasn’t something we took lightly. With newcomers Steven and Joey, we were psyched and eager to get in the Lair and start writing and after two tours with the new lineup, we were able to hit the writing hard! Didn’t take long to accomplish, and we stood and smirked at the playback of what would be the new SUPERJOINT record. With songs like ‘Receiving No Answer To The Knock’ and ‘Sociopathic Herd Delusion’ we had everything to smirk about! This record brings our viscous style of hardcore back to life. Pissed off with everything to prove, SUPERJOINT is back!”
Adds Anselmo of the offering, “The overall theme means many things, or no things, but there is an underlying message regardless, about how modern technology — computers and all that comes with them, mainly — has affected our lives. As a musician, it has affected my life both negatively (music being stolen) and positively (being in touch with fellow musicians around the world and staying visible). But when looking at the broader spectrum, computer-land has given everyday people a platform in which to bellow like carnival barkers about anything and everything, humdrum or political, whether qualified or not, some with good intentions, some with disingenuous intentions, and some with ideas that lay somewhere in the middle, creating a mishmash of results.”
As a precursor to the release of Caught Up In The Gears Of Application, today Revolver Magazine offers up the confrontational “Sociopathic Herd Delusion,” for communal ingestion. Issues Anselmo simply, “‘Sociopathic Herd Delusion’ is an absolute SUPERJOINT hook-a-rama done in one-thousand-percent SUPERJOINT form! It’s a state of cerebral address, and thicker than a hundred-year-old deck of collectable boxing cards.”
Start your weekend off with a “Sociopathic Herd Delusion,” courtesy of Revolver Magazine, at THIS LOCATION.
Preorder bundles for SUPERJOINT‘s Caught Up In The Gears Of Application are available via the Housecore Store at THIS LOCATION. For digital preorders, point your browser to iTunes HERE or Apple Music HERE.
SUPERJOINT will bring their venom to the stage for their official record release show on November 12th, 2016 in Dallas with future onstage abrasions to be announced in the coming weeks.

KILL DEVIL HILL premiere “Leave It All Behind” music video

KILL DEVIL HILL have partnered with REVOLVER MAGAZINE for the world premiere of “Leave It All Behind,” the first music video from the band’s sophomore studio release ‘REVOLUTION RISE’. The video can be watched now exclusively at revolvermag.com:

 

http://www.revolvermag.com/?p=57267

 

“We’re all fired up and ready to kick this year off right!” says bassist Rex Brown, whose autobiography ‘Official Truth – 101 Proof: The Official Story Of Pantera’ will be released in paperback March 24, 2014, with North American KILL DEVIL HILL tour dates to follow. “‘Leave It All Behind’ was shot with a very different approach for us. It’s a story board video that intertwines the band with a guy that has faced some apocalyptic demons in his own mind. We shot the video at an old missile site in Southern California that had been burned out by fires years ago. The story hits very close to home with the lyrical content of the song, which makes it even more surreal and sublime – we’ll leave the rest up to your interpretation!”

 

Featuring PANTERA and former DOWN bassist Rex Brown, former DIO, BLACK SABBATH and HEAVEN AND HELL drummer Vinny Appice, ex-PISSING RAZORS singer Dewey Bragg and acclaimed session/touring guitarist Mark Zavon, ‘REVOLUTION RISE’ was produced by KILL DEVIL HILL and Jeff Pilson, and mixed by Jay Ruston [STONE SOUR, ANTHRAX]. The album is available now in your favorite record stores, via iTunes (featuring exclusive bonus tracks “Revolution Rise” and an acoustic version of album closer “Life Goes On”), and at Amazon. Exclusive and unique bundles are also available through both CM Distro and the KILL DEVIL HILL online store.
A fixture on 2013 best-of lists, the album has fans and critics alike raving…

A spectacular sophomore effort that hits all the right buttons… Expertly played, pristinely produced, catchy (but not tacky) and richly textured, ‘REVOLUTION RISE’ is a monster of an album!” -About.com / Heavy Metal

An earthquake inducing album… The new record is a sweltering masterpiece that crackles with intensity and rhythmic syncopation.” -The Front Row Report

The first KILL DEVIL HILL record kicked everyone in the ass. The second, ‘REVOLUTION RISE’, will not only kick your ass, it will crush your ears and your mind as well…   It’s loud, it’s dirty, it’s KILL DEVIL HILL!” -The Hellion Rocks

 

Throw away the tired super-group label, KILL DEVIL HILL is simply one ass-kicking hard rock outfit making heavy as f*ck rock and roll music.” -Metalholic

THE WOUNDED KINGS: Revolver Magazine Premieres “The Silence”

Today, UK doom conjurers, THE WOUNDED KINGS, in association with Revolver Magazine, offer up another taste of bottom-heavy brilliance with “The Silence.”

 

The latest canticle comes courtesy of the band’s forthcoming new long player, Consolamentum.Dubbed “unspeakably dark” and the “richest listening experience the band has concocted to date from any of its lineups,” by popular riff portal The Obelisk, who listed Consolamentum among their most anticipated albums of the year, the record was produced by sound sorcerer Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard, Primordial, Winterfylleth et al). Recorded and mixed in just six days completely live during one of the most scalding weeks of the year in a studio miles away from civilization, the seven expansive tracks that comprise Consolamentum capture a true sentiment of isolation, gloom and looming misfortune. Led by the consuming vocals of front woman Sharie Neyland, who seemingly casts spells with her dark, prophetic words, THE WOUNDED KINGS dispel a singular heaviness that’s difficult to dismiss. In a poignant review of the record The Sleeping Shaman fittingly relays, “A dense cloud of ominous riffs floats across the void with subtle, sad melodies slithering through the thick fog. Droning dirges soaked in occult vibrations, guided by the enchanting clear voice of the high priestess of doom, emerge from this cloud. Enraptured and hypnotized I stand, my mouth opened in awe of this colossal monster that is coming to devour me. Yet I refuse to turn and run. I want to be swallowed up in this hungry, monstrous mist and be torn to shreds by the siren in its center.”

Get down with your sinister self with “The Silence,” now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.

 

And if you missed it, you can still check out the the title track, currently streaming at Vice/Noisey HERE.

 

Overcoming numerous lineup shifts since their formation in 2005, THE WOUNDED KINGS – Neyland, guitarist/keyboardist Steve Mills, guitarist Alex Kearney, bassist Al Eliadis, and drummer Myke Heath – have continually stunned audiences with their commanding stage personae. The two-time Roadburn alumni are adored by attendees and popular festival promoters, who call the band, “British doom of staggering power that is made all the more distinct by the unsettling presence of singer Sharie Neyland, who stands on stage almost trance-like, invoking her lyrics in a chanted voice that holds the entire venue in thrall.” To date, the Dartmoor-based five piece has released three full-length studio albums and a well-received split album with Richmond, Virginia’s Cough. The band has been finding a growing American audience since the release of 2011’s In The Chapel Of The Black Hand, the first offering to feature Neyland.

 

Consolamentum will be released in North America via Candlelight Records February 25, 2014. Digital preorders are currently available via iTunes HERE.

 

Alternating between otherworldly interludes like the strange and shivering ‘Space Conqueror’ and slabs of spacey doom like ‘Lost Bride’ and the title track, THE WOUNDED KINGS craft a soundscape that is part coven, part Sci-Fi epic.” – Exclaim

 

“One of the strongest assets of English doomers THE WOUNDED KINGS is the soaring gothic vocals of Sharie Neyland, who’s croon sails eerily over the band’s massive riffs and ominous keyboards. It’s clear that elements of My Dying Bride’s massive sound is a strong influence, one that sustains in the title track from the band’s LP Consolamentum.” – Vice/Noisey

 

“Sinister atmosphere, occult/fantasy themes, wistfulness and sorrow all combine to give a very complete record that no enthusiast of the doom genre should be without.” – The Sludgelord

 

THE WOUNDED KINGS sound is so organic that the room actually starts to feel damp and musty…” – Blabbermouth

KAMELOT have held their own, very special position in the world of rock and heavy music: their elaborate melodic metal has always opened itself in a remarkably clever way to like-minded styles, integrating progressive elements as well as cross-references to doom/gothic metal and classical music, which have allowed their songs to define their own genre. Two of their most successful releases in particular, namely the albums Karma (2001) and The Black Halo (2005), are prime examples of KAMELOT‘s multi-layered approach, intensity and outstanding musicality. Silverthorn, sees the band raise this demanding standard even higher, becauseSilverthorn is a masterpiece of grand gestures, gritty melodies and haunting atmospheres.

GIGAN: Extreme Metal Technicians Drop Second Track Of Torment Via Revolver Magazine

Extreme metal technicians, GIGAN, offer up a second helping from their forthcoming Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super-Science full-length, set to detonate this Fall via Willowtip Records. Recorded with renowned sound-weaver Sanford Parker (Minsk, Buried At Sea, Yakuza) at Earth Analog Studios in Chicago, the eight-track offering is a unapologetically mauling, technically boundless pummel fest that’s at once musically proficient and psychologically enthralling. As such, Revolver Magazine seeks to bend your brain with second track, “Influence Through Ritualistic Projection.”

Elaborates GIGAN master of molecular meltdowns, Eric Hersemann, of the tune, “‘Influence Through Ritualistic Projection’ is the second track on Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super Science. The song centers around a race of beings known as the Uumpluuy that, through science and Magick, have influenced countless worlds in both negative and positive ways. They have achieved this by projecting their subconscious forms into various realms and making subtle changes in both the environment and mentalities of the indigenous races.”

Let the transformations begin. Point your browser HERE.

And if you missed it, you can still check out the otherworldly sounds of “Electro-Stimulated Hallucinatory Response,” now playing at Decibel Magazine, HERE.

The brainchild of left-handed lead guitarist and founding member Eric Hersemann, GIGANhas been challenging the mortal laws of extreme music and creativity since early 2006. Forged around the simple notion that the imagination should be art’s only limit, GIGAN’s style of creative delivery has simultaneously invoked reactions of amazement, disbelief, shock, awe and ultimately, respect.

Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super Science will be released in North America via Willowtip Records October 15, 2013. Preorder details and live assaults to be announced soon.

“The difference between them and the throng of Cynic-fellating bands that have been kicking around as of late is that GIGAN have personality beneath their guitar wanking and trippy asides.” — MetalSucks

ARMED FOR APOCALYPSE: The Road Will End Streaming In Its Entirety at Revolver Magazine

In celebration of its official detonation this Tuesday, today the metal ministers at Revolver Magazine bring you a full stream of The Road Will End from California molten metal mavericks,ARMED FOR APOCALYPSE! Featuring ten tracks of slow-building, maniacal urgency, The Road Will End is a complex study in heaviness. In a perfect five K review, Kerrang crowns The Road Will End “the thickest, most punishingly-heavy aural savagery your ears will fall victim to in 2013.” About.com agrees: Aggression is off the charts. Great guitar work in the latter portions of the album. Heavy as hell, yet bolstered by a groove-infused vibe.”

Elaborates lead guitarist Cayle Hunter, “The Road Will End is the best group of songs any of us has ever been associated with. We put this album through an extremely strong filter and put every single riff under the microscope. We kept challenging each other to not just write a riff, but to write thee riff. If it didn’t force us make that ‘oooh’ face and bang our heads in the practice spot, it got cut. We wanted to make an album that was stacked with heaters from beginning to end–no filler tracks–and we feel we’ve accomplished that. We hope it gets the stamp of approval from our fellow metal heads around the world!”

Hear for yourself at Revolver Magazine HERE.

Additionally, you can view the bands official video for ever-brooding track “Better Worlds (The Void),” now playing at Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION as well as the official lyric video for “The Starting Line Is A Trip Wire” at HERE

ARMED FOR APOCALYPSE came from nowhere and nothing. The sludgy four-piece from the small Northern California college town of Chico have worked relentlessly to leave their imprint on metal. Through tours across Europe, around The States and up and down the West Coast, they’ve continued to spread their name in the best way possible: word of mouth. No triggers, no wanky “shredding,” no posturing, no cowardice, no frills. They just play crushing songs that go from slow to slower, from muck to mire, from mosh to circle-pit. And sometimes they’ll make a left turn and end up at epic. Simply put, it’s rock ‘n’ roll music tuned way down and pissed way off.

LOUNA: New Exclusive Video Interview

image001 (3)

 

Russian rockers LOUNA are pleased to share a new, exclusive video interview with Revolver Magazine! In the interview, the band discusses the new album Behind a Mask, rewriting their songs in English, misconceptions about LOUNA based on stereotypes, and more. You can watch the video now atRevolvermag.com.

 

LOUNA is poised to take over the American hard-rock scene with their new album, Behind A Mask, in-stores and available online April 30, 2013 via Red Decade Records and MEG/RED. Behind A Mask will open the eyes and ears of the American rock music scene by showcasing the pure blistering talent of LOUNA and the soaring vocals of the band’s lead singer Lousine “Lou” Gevorkian (in a world that has become immersed in autotune and over-production, Behind A Mask boasts true musical talent with only 10-15 seconds of vocal correction on the entire 45-minute record). Behind A Mask features 10 of the band’s best songs from their first two albums and have been painstakingly adapted into English by American producer and lyricist Travis Leake (the SLoT). The album was mixed by renowned producer/engineer Dan Korneff (Breaking Benjamin, The Pretty Reckless, Papa Roach, My Chemical Romance, Paramore) and mastering duties were handled by the legendary Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound, New York.

 

You can pre-order Behind a Mask now at Amazon.com. As of last month, the band has released two new tracks, ‘Business’ and ‘Mama’, via iTunes and Amazon. Download the tracks at the links below!

LOUNA has a brand new music video for the track ‘Business’ coming soon. View the new teaser video for the track now at CraveOnline.com. The full music video for ‘Business’ is one of the most expensive and elaborate productions in Russian music history according to the film company, InnerVision.

 

LOUNA released their first album, “Let’s Get Louder” in December of 2010, selling out every venue during their first national tour of Russia supporting the album. Two singles, “Fight Club” and “Let’s Get Louder” reached #1 on the Russian radio charts, with “Fight Club” remaining in the top 10 for a record-breaking 16 weeks and also being named the 2011 Rock Song of the Year at the annual Nashe Awards. Along with this, LOUNA was nominated for Breakthrough Artist and Solo Performance of the year. Their second album, “The Time of X,” released in February of 2012 has already produced a #1 single, “Mama,” and their most recent single “People Looking Up” entered the Russian charts in the top 10.

FIT FOR A KING premiere “The Lioness” exclusively via Revolver

For FIT FOR A KING and their fans, months of anticipation are about to pay off. The Texas buzz-band has spent recent weeks unveiling new music via outlets as diverse as Alternative Press, Noisecreep and Absolute Punk. Now, less than a week before the release of its Solid State Records debut, Creation/Destruction – in stores and online March 12th – the band is dropping another ferocious new track, “The Lioness,” as a final preview via heavy music tastemaker Revolver.

“The song tells the story of a man who sells his soul to Satan in exchange for happiness, but finds out that in doing so, he only finds death,” vocalist Ryan Kirby explains to Revolver. “I came up with the concept because the desire for material things and temporary happiness was something I have personally struggled with a lot. And this song serves as a reminder for me of the fate that awaits me if I fall into that lifestyle.”
 
Creation/Destruction is available to preorder now with several presale bundles available.

View Creation/Destruction preorder options:
Recorded with esteemed producer Andreas Magnusson (OH, SLEEPER, HASTE THE DAY, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER), Creation/Destruction is at once the fulfillment of a longtime dream for FIT FOR A KING, and just the first step in what is sure to sure to be an incredible journey for a band with massive potential.
 
Following several years of relentless DIY touring and a well-received, independently released album (2011’s Descendents), FIT FOR A KING are reaping the benefits of their hard work. The hotly tipped metalcore band has been elbowing its way onto the national scene as a full-time touring outfit, cultivating fans at an alarming clip with a crushingly heavy, artful take on the genre that gives subtle tips of the hat to bands as diverse as THE ACACIA STRAIN, CIRCA SURVIVE and LINKIN PARK.
The band’s passionate music, coupled with an explosive live show, has made the band a sensation in the independent music scene. With Creation/Destruction, FIT FOR A KING are set to take their already surging career to new heights.

UNSAID FATE Premiere New Video on RevolverMag.com

When people join a band, there are never any guarantees that anyone will appreciate it, let alone like or respect its output. When they choose it as their career, the odds of finding success and reaching the hearts and minds of today’s youth is all the more distant. In short, choosing a career as a musician makes your future very uncertain. Having the drive to push through the obstacles and knowing you will find success is what four Cleveland musicians know to be their UNSAID FATE.

UNSAID FATE is preparing for the release of their debut EP Never Turning Back. After months holed up with producer Don DeBiase (Modern Day Escape, In Alcatraz 1962, Vanilla Ice) and being mixed by Steve “Skinny” Felton (Mushroomhead), the band feel they have found their apex on Never Turning Back. Today the band is stoked to debut the video for their first single from Never Turning Back entitled “Our Addiction”. Check out an exclusive premiere courtesy of Revolver Magazine HERE. The video was directed by Don Tyler, who is known for his work with Pink, Maroon 5 and Flyleaf.

“Our Addiction” is available for download on iTunes and Amazon.

Formed from the ashes of the highly acclaimed regional band JACKIE, Ohio’s UNSAID FATE have retooled and refocused their energies to fully capture the attention of an active rock audience that was quickly becoming bored with the cookie cutter sounds that were being created by the most successful bands of the genre. While bands got lazy from the spoils of success, JACKIE’s musical hunger and creativity grew; so much so that they outgrew the confines and stereotypes of the old band name. As UNSAID FATE took shape, their musical creativity and the deeper heaviness of their sound expanded with each passing day.

Led by vocalist Jackie LaPonza, UNSAID FATE reaches out to fans in an effort to let them know that the world hears their screams for a better place to exist and thrive in. “We want people to hear the words and music and feel the stories,” states the singer who was recently named one of the “Hottest Chicks in Metal” by Revolver Magazine. “They need someone to keep telling them to stay true to themselves and not to give up or give in on their dreams no matter what others say. We’ve worked on what we do for such a long time now and we would really love to be doing it full time and doing it worldwide! We want to hit the ground running and never look back.”

While LaPonza is the band’s leader, she is only one piece of the puzzle that completes UNSAID FATE. Guitarist Patrick Ols is a guitarist that combines extraordinary six string skills with an almost Punk attitude in both his playing and his on-stage presentation. He plays masterfully over top of a driving bottom end created by bassist Donovan St. Clair and drummer Mike LaPonza. As a unit, UNSAID FATE are a musical force creating a defined landscape that anxious youth can not only groove with, but can also relate to.

Throw The Fight to release new 4 song EP “The Vault”

Throw The Fight are excited to announce their new 4 song EP “The Vault” is coming out on Bullet Tooth on March 19. Hot off the heels of their latest album “What Doesn’t Kill Us” (June 26, 2012) and touring with their friends in Nonpoint, these guys have no intentions of slowing down and are anxious to release this new UNRELEASED material! CD and digital pre-orders and song samples will be launched soon.

Throw The Fight “The Vault” (March 19, 2013)
01. Years Past
02. I Know
03. Breaking The Cycle
04. My Life In Your Hands

According to guitarist, Ryan Baustert, “It’s going to be good to get some more tunes out there for everyone to hear. These songs are tracks that we recorded prior to “What Doesn’t Kill Us” and we’ve been saving them for a rainy day.” Vocalist James Clark added, “The heart of the lyrics are about still having hope when the world seems against you. It’s about seeing the big picture and understanding that you can’t change the hand you have been dealt but you can make choices to change your outcome. No matter how difficult or hard some things seem, choose to change your own ending. It’s your story and you are the writer.”

Revolver Magazine recently launched the worldwide premiere of the new Throw The Fight music video for “Not So Hollywood”! Check it out at RevolverMag.com (or at VEVO). “Triple Threat Productions did a KILLER job producing the video. We had a great team going into this project and the whole experience was a ton of fun. All the people in this video are all close friends of the band, so that made everything that much more enjoyable. They made this video possible.” – Ryan Baustert (Guitar)

Throw The Fight released their new album “What Doesn’t Kill Us” this past June and the album continues the tradition of former acts from Minneapolis by delivering an authentic display of metal-edged, hard rock. It’s the kind of energy one hears on the band’s newest album, the John Feldmann (Atreyu, The Used) produced, “What Doesn’t Kill Us”. The new single has had significant airplay and spins on Music Choice, SiriusXM Octane, CILU, KEYJ, KGAR, KILO, KISW, KMRQ, KQXR, KRDJ, KXXR, WAQX, WCPR, WEOS, WGRD, WHMH, WIIL, WJJR, WJRR, WRAT, WWBN, WWHG, WXCI, WXRX, and WZOR!

“Capturing Music: A Music Photography Seminar”

After a busy year culminating with shoots for Megadeth, Coheed and Cambria, Motionless in White, The Misfits, GWAR, Arsis and Epica, spreads in Alternative Press Magazine, Revolver Magazine AND Outburn Magazine, as well as time well spent raising over $1,500 for late Suicide Silence singer Mitch Lucker’s daughter Kenadee with a legacy print series (all proceeds went to Kenadee’s education fund), JEREMY SAFFER can now announce the new dates for his first west coast music photography seminar in conjunction with SoundCheck Hollywood.

The seminar will take place on February 9th and 10th at Soundcheck Hollywood, located at 8872 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA.

SEMINAR DETAILS:
The two-day seminar and workshop will focus on portrait work with musicians and will cover the entire process—from setting up the photo shoot, scouting locations, posing, different types of lighting and lighting equipment for different situations, shooting endorsements, promotional images, CD layouts, and magazine layouts, to walking attendees through the process of what to do post-shoot, invoicing, getting repeat business, and even how to price yourself. Many other business aspects of being a professional photographer within the music industry will be discussed.

The first day will be the official seminar day, where all of the above is taught in the morning, as well as a lightroom and photoshop post processing tutorial. In the afternoon of day one, attendees will complete mock-photo shoots experimenting with different types of lighting equipment, lighting set-ups, poses, etc. Jeremy has also expanded the music photography business section even more, and will also include private portfolio critique for attendees that specifically request it.

On the second day of the seminar, attendees will experience a hands-on photo shoot of special guest bands done first by Jeremy (as a real-life example), and next by themselves! Attendees will take over and complete a real photo shoot with the band in various locations.

Hopeful attendees must act now; there are only 10 tickets available to this seminar!

On February 9th at 6pm, SoundCheck Hollywood will re-open to the public for a brief meet and greet/signing where Jeremy will be signing his copies of his book Bring The Noise and will have exclusive limited edition prints available for purchase at a special one-time only price.

For more information and tickets, please visit www.jeremysaffer.com/soundcheckseminar.

THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY Debut Lyric Video on RevolverMag.com

THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY may have originated from Washington DC but their style, image, sound and attitude are straight from the Sunset Strip in its debaucherousfilled heyday. The five-song Time’s Running Out EP which was released on December 4th via Standby Records has announced their arrival to the world with passion and intensity, issuing a warning to pretenders that THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY means business. The EP can be ordered through Amazon and iTunes.

The band recently completed work on a lyric video for the song “Panic (Time’s Running Out)”. Today the video is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of Revolver Magazine.

Check out a full stream of 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.

Lineup:
Bret Von Dehl – Vocals
JC Charles – Guitar
Alex Foxx – Guitar
Brandon Kile – Bass
Tyler Gloyd – Drums

BUTCHER BABIES SIGN WITH CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS

Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of the BUTCHER BABIES to their worldwide family of artists. Hailing from Los Angeles, the BUTCHER BABIES have emerged as one of the biggest draws on the Sunset Strip, their incendiary blend of heavy metal and horror-inspired theatrics inciting crowds worldwide.

Fronted by Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd – named two of the year’s ‘Hottest Women In Rock’ by Revolver Magazine – the blood-splattered band left their mark on the United Kingdom in June, appearing on the Download festival and supporting Anthrax in Cardiff. They returned to America as direct support for Otep in fall, and are wrapping up their first headlining tour tonight in front of a hometown crowd at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip. The band – vocalists Harvey and Shepherd, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chris Warner – will be performing with labelmates In This Moment tomorrow night in Las Vegas.

“Century Media has been a huge supporter of BUTCHER BABIES for a long time, and it feels natural to join their tight knit family,” said the band of their signing. “It’s an honor for us to be on a roster amongst many other bands that have inspired us for so long. We couldn’t be more excited about the future of this union.”

The band are currently at work on their full-length debut, which is slated for worldwide release in summer 2013 via Century Media Records.

Tour Dates:
11/19/12 – Hollywood, CA @ The Roxy
11/20/12 – Las Vegas, NV @ Vinyl (with In This Moment)

In addition to the video premiere, AdventureQuest Worlds will be putting out an album of ONE-EYED DOLL songs on October 31st.

Modern Day Escape Puts Pittsburgh Under the Gun

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Revolver Magazine described them as, “an irresistibly catchy fusion of Sunset Strip style hard rock and galvanic screamo. Alternative Press calls them “irresistible” and Outburn Magazine calls them “a real winner”. We here at Pittsburgh Music Magazine had the first chance to catch them live in Pittsburgh at The Ironworks while on tour with Affiance, Deception of a Ghost, and Picture Me Broken. Formed in Orlando, FL in the summer of 2006 MDE has been toughing it out on the road and impressing audiences for a long time now and are touring in support of their latest effort, ‘Under the Gun’ that sees them taking a more melodic approach to their previous work. Certainly there is an improvement in Vegas’ lyrics that focus more on introspective events of his past than the previous “party” content. We must also say that former Black Veil Brides drummer Sandra Alva is a welcome addition and one hell of a drummer.
One of our most loyal followers (and a secret source for keeping us cool) is Melisa, who turned us on to MDE. PMM is thankful she did. With a stellar performance that floored the Pittsburgh crowd, Modern Day Escape made an indelible mark on the Steel City. Due to a massive delay on their way to the ‘Burgh, MDE was unable to sit down for an interview pre-show. But, we hung out with singer James Vegas for sometime after their set and we can’t say enough about what a great guy he truly is and we had a tremendous time getting to know him. Very humble, very gracious, very cool. James took time to talk to all our supporters and signed their pants, posters, and took pictures with all happily.
As of this writing MDE is unfortunately stuck in Fredricksburg, VA with a bum transmission (and silly you thought the road was all glory) and getting ready to tear up the West of the U.S. on their way back home to L.A. Check out the video below and you can order their new CD and merch here.
