MavenHut Launches Dustin Lynch Solitaire

Irish gaming company MavenHut has partnered with country music singer and songwriter Dustin Lynch to create the Dustin Lynch Solitaire mobile app, a one-of-a-kind gaming experience now available for download HERE. Watch a special video message from Dustin to his fans about the app HERE.
Dustin Lynch Solitaire is a unique take on the classic Solitaire game and allows players to re-discover the classic pastime in a way that is more fun, engaging, and social. Branded with the personality that has garnered Dustin fans around the world, the app allows users to enjoy Solitaire with a musical twist and unique competitive edge. In every match, Dustin is rooting for each player every step of the way. The game also showcases elements such as magical power-ups, synchronous real-time gaming, and various tournament options.
“I’m completely hooked! This is my new favorite way to pass time and have some friendly competition doing so when I’m traveling,” said Dustin Lynch. “I hope we get to play in tournaments together, good luck!”
“Dustin’s creativity, authenticity, and strong following on social platforms by users spanning various age, income, and cultural backgrounds make him the perfect partner for our first Solitaire celebrity-featured mobile app,” said Andreea Leonte of MavenHut.
With three consecutive No. 1s, two Top 5 albums, platinum-level sales and back-to-back summers on one of the biggest tours in country music, Dustin Lynch has been on a steady path towards superstardom. The first single from Lynch’s soon-to-be-announced third album, “Seein’ Red” is a fist-pumping blast of intensity full of flirtatious heat and tangled-up passion, and the next step in the Tennessee native’s evolution.  He’s already been to the top of the charts with songs “Cowboys and Angels“, “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep)”, “Hell of a Night“, and “Mind Reader“. “Seein’ Red” signals an exciting new chapter for the hit maker and is a tantalizing preview of his “dangerous” third album. Now on his second tour in a row with master showman Luke Bryan, Lynch says he’s learning from the best and gunning for country’s top spot.
Dustin Lynch Solitaire supported languages include: English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.

Megadeth and Rob Zombie rocked Stage AE in Pittsburgh last week and will continue to do so throughout the U.S. and Europe. MPAPPHOTO was there to capture the pure energy of the show and has joined Pittsburgh Music Magazine as a collaborator.

Metal icons MEGADETH are delivering volcanic performances and earning rave reviews on their co-headlining tour with Rob Zombie, which marks the first time the two bands have toured together. The trek kicked off Friday, May 11 in Holmdel, NJ and will include two high-profile rock festival appearances including Rock On The Range and Rocklahoma, where the tour wraps on Saturday, May 26. A list of confirmed dates is below. For additional information on purchasing tickets, visit www.megadeth.com.

Prior to the show, the New York Times proclaimed that “the speed pioneers Megadeth have the decibels to fill the grandiose PNC” and the New York Daily News said, “At last year’s faceoff with Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, the band led by Dave Mustaine offered a set that did both their sub-genre and legacy proud (5/10/12).”

In a review of the first show, Tris McCall of the Newark, NJ Star-Ledger said, “While most of the band’s peers have either slowed down, broken up or switched to a more profitable style, Megadeth presses on, hard and fast as ever. Mustaine is a study in perseverance–and professionalism, too: He recently had to re-learn how to play guitar after suffering nerve damage in his arm. That trauma has left no mark on him–his solos, sometimes taken in harmony with sideman Chris Broderick, are as dextrous, and rapid-fire, as ever (5/13/12).” Theexaminer.com added, “The musicians ripped and shredded their way through riffs and solos with machine-like precision, yet somehow projecting an earnest passion through the notes that speaks to the raw emotion of Mustaine’s songwriting (5/13/12).”

After their tour with ROB ZOMBIE wraps at Rocklahoma, MEGADETH–singer/guitarist DAVE MUSTAINE, bassist DAVID ELLEFSON, drummer SHAWN DROVER and guitarist CHRIS BRODERICK–will head to Europe for shows in Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Czech Republic, England, Luxembourg, Netherlands, France, Romania, Turkey, Switzerland, Greece, Belgium, Russia, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland, then in September will head to South America for concerts in Chile, Argentina and Mexico.

A newly released video for the group’s next single “Whose Life (Is It Anyway?)” can be seen now.. The video is a heavy metal tour de force, depicting youth angst turned violent, resulting in an apocalyptic finale.

The current tour comes on the heels of MEGADETH’s critically acclaimed return of the traveling festival GIGANTOUR, created and curated by frontman DAVE MUSTAINE. Rave reviews poured in for the festival, which also featured MOTÖRHEAD, VOLBEAT and LACUNA COIL. “The return of Gigantour, a nicely curated package tour of heavy metal bands, is just one more step in a great run underway by Megadeth,” wrote the Boston Globe. “It was a smart and well-paced show, one that illuminated metal’s various angles (1/31/12).”

2011 marked the release of MEGADETH’s 13th album, the appropriately titled Th1rt3en. Released November 1 on Roadrunner Records, the album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock chart. The album also landed on international charts including Top 10 placements in Argentina, Finland, Korea and Japan. MEGADETH also received their tenth Grammy nomination for this project, earning a “Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Performance” nomination for their single “Public Enemy #1.” The “Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Performance” category was, eerily, category #13.
