Garbage Shares Music Video for New Single “No Horses”

NOW TOURING THE U.S. WITH BLONDIE
 
NEW AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL COFFEE TABLE BOOK

THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE AVAILABLE NOW

 Garbage today shared a music video for their new single “No Horses”. Directed by Pancake Mountain creator Scott Stuckey, the politically charged clip can be seen HERE. “No Horses” was released last month and is available now HERE. All of the band’s profits from sales and streaming of the single will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross through the end of 2018.
“It’s been my observation that when governments disregard their citizens for their own greed, the ensuing soundtrack usually kick’s ass. Like Nina Simone’s ‘Mississippi Goddam’ or the Clash’s ‘Straight To Hell’, ‘No Horses’ made me realize that I’m not going insane, these really are fucked up times. The lyrics are powerful so the challenge was to add something visually that wouldn’t ruin the individual’s interpretation,” offered director Scott Stuckey on the video’s inspiration.
 
Earlier this summer, Garbage released their autobiographical coffee table book, THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE via Akashic Books. The book includes never before seen photographs of the band as well as pieces written by each of the four band members. THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE can be purchased HERE
 
Garbage kicked off their co-headline “Rage & Rapture Tour” with Blondie on July 5th in Saratoga, CA and will be touring the U.S. for the duration of the summer. Both bands along with an opening slot from Sky Ferreira played to a crowd of 17,000 fans last month, selling out LA’s Hollywood Bowl.

The re-issue features three acoustic tracks.[6]

**Watch CHON’s ‘Making of Homey‘ Webisode #1 Here**
 
“CHON’s technicality is used to make music that’s inviting to any type of listener who wants to just listen 
to a group of awesome musicians.”
– Noisey
 
 “CHON has been building momentum the last few years,
showcasing their dazzling, mathy, emotional, mostly instrumental tunes”

“CHON paints vividly beautiful and elaborate settings with the power of instrumentation”

San Diego, CA – May 12, 2017 – CHON will be kicking off a headlining North American tour through 24 cities, with support from Tera Melos, Covet, and Little Tybee. For more information on their upcoming full-length album and tour, please visit: http://www.chonofficial.co
CHON recently announced the release of their second full-length album Homey on June 16th via Sumerian Records. Underneath a canopy of electronic-tinged soundscapes and tapestries of lush guitar mastery, you can practically feel the Southern California coast come to life on Homey.
Following the success of 2015’s Grow and worldwide touring with everyone from Periphery and Animals As Leaders to Circa Survive, the instrumental trio-brothers Mario [guitar] and Nathan Camarena [drums] and Erick Hansel [guitar]-returned home to San Diego in the summer of 2016 to begin work on what would become their next musical offering. For the very first time, they rented a rehearsal space a stone’s throw from the ocean, and the beachside locale’s influence courses through 12 virtuosic and vibrant new musical movements.
Those vibes transformed CHON into a vital force since their emergence in 2008. Grow marked their first entry on the Billboard Top 200, landing prominently in the Top 150. They impressively average 144K Spotify streams monthly with over 10 tracks cracking the 1-million mark and fan favorites such as “Story,” “Bubble Dream,” and “Can’t Wait” surpassing 2 million-a remarkable feat for a chiefly instrumental act. Homey sees them expand once more, incorporating a slew of future bass influences with collaborators such as Go Yama on “Berry Streets” and Lophile on “Nayhoo”, which also features a vocal cameo from Masego.
With excitement towards the upcoming release, CHON explains, “We’re super proud to show everyone our new album “Homey”. This time we tried a lot of new things out that we’ve always wanted to do, one of which being the chance to collab with a bunch of our favorite artists of all time, so this is a really special album to us. The loose concept behind the name “Homey” comes from the music being inspired by where we live in Southern California. A lot of magical moments went into the creation of this thing, and we hope you feel ’em”
CHON is set to release their upcoming full-length album Homey on June 16, 2017. For more information, please visit: http://www.chonofficial.com/.

The album’s lead single “Get Out” scored Top 10 success on FMQB’s Triple A chart, and garnered the band a pair of national television appearance, performing on CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Late Late Show with James Corden.”   The song’s emotionally provocative, companion video made its premiere on NPR’s All Songs Considered and received a raft of praise from influential sites, including Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Consequence of Sound, among others. The video – beautifully shot in Kiev –can be viewed at the band’s official YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/frightenedrabbit).

“PAINTING OF A PANIC ATTACK” follows 2013’s major label debut “PEDESTRIAN VERSE,” which earned a Top 10 debut in the UK as well as critical acclaim from a wide spectrum of American press, with praise coming from mainstream outlets like Rolling Stone and Time as well tastemaker blogs like Pitchfork and Stereogum.  The band’s emotionally charged live shows have earned a devoted fanbase, which includes bands like Death Cab For Cutie and The National – both of whom have handpicked Frightened Rabbit to support them on extensive tours.

THE WHISKEY GENTRY LIVE IN PITTSBURGH JUNE 8TH IN SUPPORT OF THEIR NEW “DEAD RINGER” ALBUM

The Atlanta-based Americana band The Whiskey Gentry will be performing a local Pittsburgh show on Thu. Jun 8th at Howlers. This show is in support of their recently released third studio album Dead Ringer, out via David Lowery and Velena Vego’s Pitch-A-Tent Records.

Thu. Jun 8 The Whiskey Gentry 9pm @ Howlers, 4509 Liberty Ave, Pittsburgh, PA (412) 682-0320

CLICK THE IMAGE BELOW TO WATCH THE PREMIERE OF THE WHISKEY GENTRY’S NEW VIDEO “FOLLOWING YOU” VIA THE BOOT!

HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY BEEN SAYING ABOUT THE WHISKEY GENTRY’S “DEAD RINGER”:

 

“Lauren Staley’s vocals fit nicely into the Kacey Musgraves/Maren Morris gallactic country orbit. This gentry, however, has a whole lot of Western influences and a trunk full of guitar tremelo that makes their track “Looking for Trouble” feel like an authentic ride through the desert. After the second chorus, the song really does venture into psychedelic territory with phasers set to kill. It’s an interesting coda, capping off a great straight-forward twang rocker with drama.” – NO DEPRESSION

“One of this year’s best country albums… Dead Ringer‘s runaway rock and blazing bluegrass bristle with the same fire and brimstone as albums by some of country’s hottest acts, from stars like Chris Stapleton and Miranda Lambert to newbies like Jon Pardi and Margo Price.” – TAMPA BAY TIMES

“Blending traditional bluegrass instrumentation with the energy of punk and the songwriting depth of country, Atlanta’s Whiskey Gentry whips the diverse audience of liquored up frat boys, hardcore country fans and local scenesters into a frenzy, mixing frantic instrumentals with edgy rockers and neo-honky-tonk weepers, and they don’t let up until the last note rings loud and clear above the cacophonous applause.” – GEORGIA MUSIC MAGAZINE

[9/10 stars!] “The Whiskey Gentry have got a real dead ringer you’ll love.” – MAXIMUM VOLUME MUSIC

“On Dead Ringer, the Whiskey Gentry’s third studio album, the group turns most of its attention away from the good-time party mentality of previous releases and writes about itself, its members’ lives and what matters to them. It is a bold step for a band that has a devoted following of loyal fans who expect the high energy acoustic-based “yeehah!” of the past. And while there is still plenty of that vitality in the music, the words are a bit more introspective and the electric guitars are a little bit louder. With the ever-present feistiness in singer Lauren Staley Morrow’s rich, clear voice, the delivery of a more autobiographical narrative is as entertaining as always and the live in-studio recording retains the band’s musical intensity. All in all, Dead Ringer is a fine effort by a band that is not afraid to grow up.” ★★★★☆ – CREATIVE LOAFING ATLANTA

 “Named after a memorable line in Hunter S. Thompson’s iconic missive from the 1970 Kentucky Derby, Atlanta-based country-rock crew The Whiskey Gentry operates with appropriate levels of decadence and depravity. The group’s new record, Dead Ringer, showcases a punked-up version of its bluegrass- (and whiskey-) soaked Americana sound. Like Lydia Loveless or the Drive-By Truckers, The Whiskey Gentry uses traditional Southern music as a base for a sneakily innovative and contemporary sound.” – FLAGPOLE 

“It’s hard not to love Lauren Staley’s voice, which is not only powerful but definitely sounds like it was influenced by listening to a lot of country music. This album is a real testament to the songwriting of this band. Whether it’s an uptempo song or a ballad, this band creates songs that are a good blend of rock and country and will have you singing along. If you’re a fan of alt-country, this is a band you’ll want to get to know.” – AXS

“There’s something joyous and revelatory about the mix of honky-tonk swagger and DIY rebelliousness that feels truer to its influences than slicker, more polished groups, and lead singer Lauren Staley will always have one of those classic country voices that can knock you back flat-footed.” – COLUMBIA FREE TIMES

Dead Ringer is an album of an honest human experience, replete with all the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that unite people across the South, the country, and the world. In a world where the most powerful people win the tympanic real estate of the masses with disingenuous lyrics, the Whiskey Gentry can provide solace to anyone with a beating heart and open ears. The Whiskey Gentry sing tales of woe and emotional tangles that are relatable, honest, and beautiful. This is the essence of music: preservation of the stories that bring people together, an expression of the shared human experience. – LIBRO MUSICA

 

Following the release of their first two acclaimed albums, Please Make Welcome (2011) and Holly Grove (2013), the Atlanta-based band The Whiskey Gentry are set to release their third full-length studio album entitled Dead Ringer this spring. On it, the husband and wife duo of Lauren Staley & Jason Morrow and bandmates have created an effort that builds on many of the sounds of their previous albums – incorporating deep country, Americana, honky-tonk, bluegrass and a stiff shot of gritty rock ’n’ roll, yet it also finds the band testing themselves and pushing beyond their own boundaries.

 

Dead Ringer deals with growing up, and how that’s affected the band’s relationships, and the places they’ve gone and people they’ve met in the process. As singer/songwriter Lauren Staley puts it, “There’s also a lot of questioning where you are in your life: are you going to follow your dream, or are you going to do what society thinks you should do?”

 

It’s apparent with this effort that Staley & Co. have opted for the former. “A common lyrical thread throughout this album are stories about being on the road,” Lauren admits, “and chasing your dreams and the outcomes – either good or bad – in doing that.”

 

Stepping outside of the comfort zone of their previous recordings, the band has moved in a different direction musically. “Sonically, the biggest difference of this record is that we recorded it live together in the same room at Echo Mountain Recording Studio (Asheville, NC),” Lauren explains. “There are less overdubs, which makes it sound more like how it would if you were to see us in person – it’s raw, it’s not perfect. We worked with a producer for the first time (Les Hall), and he had so many amazing ideas we’d never thought of and really pushed us to think outside of our box. There’s an energy on this record that we’ve never captured before, and I think it was a complete game changer for our sound.”

 

Dead Ringer has more guitars, more attitude and more of an edge than anything the band has done before. It’s not such a massive departure in sound that fans won’t understand it, but they will notice. “We are not a different band,” Lauren explains, “but we’ve definitely grown up and are changed people from the time we started this band. I think we’re better musicians, better songwriters. We’ve learned lessons and we’ve worked hard, and we want to tell our current fans and new fans the stories of what we’ve experienced on this journey. Musically, there are still elements of bluegrass and honky-tonk in our sound, and there always will be. However, I think we’ve expanded the scope of what we can offer people – there’s something for everyone on this record.”

 

The Whiskey Gentry has been tearing up the road for the better half of the last decade, logging over 150 shows each year, and winning over crowds at major festivals such as Shaky Knees, Shaky Boots, Merlefest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, FloydFest and many others. With the release of Dead Ringer they’ll continue this trend, bringing their raucous, high-energy shows to audiences from coast-to-coast.

 

The Whiskey Gentry’s Dead Ringer will be available on limited vinyl, CD and digital formats on April 7th via Pitch-A-Tent Records.

Allegaeon will release their new album, Proponent For Sentience, this Friday, September 23rd.Produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation), Proponent For Sentience is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths. To preview and purchase Proponent For Sentience, visit: metalblade.com/allegaeon.

If flaccid, identikit, breakdown-laden “metal” is the disease, Necromancing The Stone’s recently released debut full-length, Jewel Of The Vile, is the cure. Featuring current/former members of Arsis(guitarist James Malone), The Absence (drummer Jeramie Kling), The Black Dahlia Murder (bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams), and Brimstone Coven (guitarist Justin Wood and vocalist “Big” John Williams),Necromancing The Stone “has brought back the glory days [of ’80s heavy metal] with unbridled spirit”(Loudwire.com).

About VYCES:

In the summer of 2014, frontman and guitarist, Dave Naruszewicz was looking to work on a new project following the disbandment of Chicago ­based group, Heart­Set Self Destruct. After recording 2 full length records, releasing a single to active rock radio which charted at #1 on Music Choice Network, and years of touring North America with such bands as Volbeat, Hellyeah, and Filter it was time for change.

Looking to feed his passion as an artist, Dave spent time working with other musicians in the Chicago music scene but didn’t find what he was looking for. Not deterred, Dave reached out to longtime friend and fellow musician/drummer, Russell Ray. Russ (formerly of Old Fashioned Beatdown) also co­wrote and recorded drums for Wind­Up Records recording artist Megan McCauley.

Dave began flying to Los Angeles from Chicago twice a month, working with Russ to build something new, original and undeniable. Russ then reached out to former bandmate and guitarist Shawn Patterson (formerly Old Fashioned Beatdown and Phantom Communique). The three began writing, recording, and sharing demos that would eventually become the foundation of VYCES. After a few trips to L.A., they entered the studio with producer Augustus Cryns (Stitched Up Heart, XO Stereo, The Dead Rabbits and Westfield Massacre).

One year later, the band completed 14 songs that established the raw sound, power, and a vision that is VYCES. The band has been compared to such artists as Chevelle, Killswitch Engage and Breaking Benjamin, sonically creating a dark blend of active rock and metal. Dave describes the soul of the songs as “exploring the darker side of human emotion and behavior. It’s something everyone can relate to because everyone has experienced some form of hurt, betrayal, weakness, hate, addiction and/or lack of acceptance. It’s also the fuel that drives us to be stronger, get better and overcome the flaws we’ve built in our minds.”
The founding members of the band felt it was time to release their music and tour, so they began their hunt for members to fill out the lineup and become part of the family. Evan Seidlitz, (former singer of Thrown Into Exile and Grimace), longtime friend of Dave and Russ, was asked to join the band. Evan toured on The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in 2013 with Thrown Into Exile, promoting their single, “Not Alone” which was featured on Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal. Evan also performed several guest spots with Grimace when they played the house band for Comedy Central’s Tosh.0. Evan, being a singer and frontman himself, brought a new dimension of aggressive and melodic vocals to round out the band’s live performance, as well as adding keys and synths to fill out the sound. The band soon began auditioning other musicians in search of a bass player. Evan brought in bassist Mark James Klepaski (formerly of Breaking Benjamin). Mark earned platinum and gold records for his work with Breaking Benjamin. Along with years of touring experience, Mark brought a unique and powerful style and tone that fit perfectly with the band’s vision. Mark re­tracked the bass lines on the record, helping mold the band’s rhythm section into what it is today. The band is currently preparing to release their self­titled EP and recently shot a music video for the upcoming single, “Devil” directed by Ron Underwood. “Devil” will be released this August 18th. Their 1st single “The Hive” is currently available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and all other media platforms.

Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a MAC SABBATH show. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun – MAC SABBATH puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show – complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises… basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams.
“… one of the most interesting bands to come around in a long, long time. They have Dead Kennedys’ outrageous sense of humor mixed with total irreverence and ornate style on top of a solid, engaging performance (even if the crowd is reluctant to respond). So while this whole thing was probably thought up after eating too many pot brownies, it is one of the most brilliant ideas in a long time.”­
Troy Farah, Phoenix New Times
 
“This is not a drill. Be it exchanging Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” for a “Pair-a-buns” or “Iron Man” for a “Frying Pan,” these food-focused musical dweebs are cooking up something hot ‘n’ ready just for you.”Alicia Lutes, MTV.com
 
“The most impressive-and terrifying-thing about Mac Sabbath is that they’re actually really good. Ronald channels his inner Ozzy onstage, from the manic jumping to the frantic hand waving…” Bryan Rolli, Paste Magazine
 
“Even if the songs are dripping with onions and extra cheese, Mac Sabbath put on one righteous stage show, complete with smoke machines, gritty power chords, and endless head-banging.”Chris Coplan, ConsequenceofSound.net
 
Named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To”

CHILD BITE continues to astound ears with the apocalyptic sounds of Negative Noise, out now on Housecore Records. The wild, forty-seven-minute ride was produced by label head Philip H. Anselmo, mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer), and is where the Venn diagram of Black Flag, Voivod, and The Jesus Lizard truly overlaps.
The Sludgelord notes, “CHILD BITE creates an idiosyncratic racket, a chaotic collision of off-kilter punk, the weirder end of ’80s hardcore and rumbling post-punk. Negative Noise is an invigorating blast of dissonance, a blend of familiar influences twisted into their warped vision. Shawn Knight’s hyperactive drawl makes a compelling foil to the band’s manic yet inventive playing, as his Jello Biafra via Mike Watt drawl varies in intensity to match the song’s twists and turns.” New Noise Magazine calls CHILD BITE‘s Negative Noise, “…an adventurous slice of loud rock…They have the aggressive force of hardcore, but it’s filtered through grimy noise rock…Negative Noise showcases a band firing on all cylinders.” Brave Words observes, “The danger with this sort of artsy punk is that it can skirt a line between really interesting and creative and just really annoying and grating, really fast. Most bands who do this sort of thing end up being in the latter category, but CHILD BITE stay listenable, thanks to a ton of interesting and cool guitar work (check out ‘Video Blood’) and an ability to keep things toe-tapping and relatively rockin’, even if it’s rarely with a straight beat and is certainly never with an expected twist or turn,” adding, “References within the sphere of metal are hard to come by, but imagine if the first Mr. Bungle album wasn’t annoying circus music, and then remember that this band once did a 5″ record of Anal Cunt covers with Phil Anselmo on vocals, and you’re getting there.” Punk News concurs, “This is for the open minded punk, headbanger or weirdo. If you like your music a little on the ugly side, you owe it to yourself to check them out. (Especially if you get a chance to see them live.) Negative Noise can be a hard record to love, but ultimately it’s worth the effort.” No Clean Singing notes, ” Negative Noise possesses a brilliance and individuality all its own and is a refreshing breath of fetid air in an era saturated with a d-beat-only approach to punk and hardcore,” while KNAC hails, “…an all-over-the-place shitstorm of punk/hardcore, metal, noise/post rock, prog and even surf music in Brandon Sczomak’s shrill guitar jangle…it sounds sorta like someone stuffed Mr. Bungle/Fantomas, Voivod, old Clutch (especially in Shawn Knight’s husky baritone and seemingly extemporaneous delivery), Black Flag and The Jesus Lizard into a blender, pushed ‘grind’ and then forget to turn it off.”

DOUBLE VANITY*

ON TOUR THIS AUGUST

Photo credit: Pooneh Ghana
“Perfection refracted… The hooks are still there, buried under hairpin-bent notes and a blanket of reverb that would make anyone but the Jesus & Mary Chain blush.” – SPIN
 
“Double Vanity is somewhat of a tonal shift from their last album-they’ve gotten a little smoother, a little slower, and a little sexier… [“Fantasy Boys”] sounds like the romantic final slow dance scene from a sexy late ’80s movie.” – The Fader


“You know a song is good when it makes you shiver a little and it’s not just because the air con is on full blast.” – Noisey
“Equal parts psych and blues, ‘Señora Borealis’ pushes Broncho’s sound to the apex, with washes of vocal effects and reverb coating every inch of the track.” – AV Club
“Dirge-paced rhythms offset with beautifully spacey guitars that wouldn’t sound out of place on a peak-era Cure album.” – The 405

BRONCHO – DOUBLE VANITY:
Blasted grassland, the thin ribbon line of the freeway unspooling beneath wheels, skies stretched wide between mountaintop. It is dream music, foggy, atmospheric, the melodies you hear while you gazing out through fingerprint smeared windows into a constantly moving, metamorphosing landscape….
It makes sense then, that BRONCHO was born out of out a film project, its initial incarnation sparked when founder Ryan Lindsey was asked to create music “to set to an early 80s punk film.” “That’s all I knew about it,” he remembers, “they were looking for songs that touched this era. And songs kept coming to me and turned something on inside of me artistically.” Lindsey found himself in the midst of prolific run of songs and he liked the idea “of starting out there and seeing where it could go.”
What’s evolved from those first tracks there has been a steady run of success, critical accolades and two full-length albums: 2011’s Can’t Get Past the Lips and 2014’s Just Enough Hip to Be Woman. And beneath it all, the music has been constantly mutating and ceaselessly experimental. From that first inception as a soundtrack in 2010, BRONCHO has taken on a life of its own. The initial inspiration is still there, but now pushing far beyond the stiff confines of score. What began as an ode to ramshackle, high-energy early punk has become something deeper, weirder, and much more nuanced.  The undercurrent of early 1980s punk is still there, but The Ramones pogo has been replaced more often by a kind of Love and Rockets-inspired, honeyed, cotton-mouthed drift.
Double Vanity is Lindsey and bandmates Ben King, Nathan Price and Penny Pitchlynn steadily moving ahead, transforming the raw angst of the first record into a sound decidedly more layered and complex. Tracks like “New Karma” or “Two Step” riff off the later explorations of punk, culling up refracted images of John Hughes prom nights, love songs echoing from a boombox held high. “Jenny Loves Jenae” and “Speed Demon” strut with a 80s-meets-50s swagger, discord transformed into a jagged, frenetic pop. “Señora Borealis” is all bad boy sneer – sensual, moody, with a sly and predatory swagger.  “I Know You” is simultaneously infectious and brooding, somehow both exalting and heartsick.
The result is a record that veers gleefully from BRONCHO’s roots, moving from graffiti sprayed backrooms into a sleeker, plusher sound, a place bright with the polished gleam of chrome and bleached white sunlight. Close your eyes and what you feel is the raw wound pulse of adolescence; what you see behind your lids is suburban shopping mall wastelands, glazed eyes, dead grass, lips glossed in bubblegum pink. There is the burst chest thump of teenage longing, the smell of hairspray and cigarettes. There is glow of neon and the glint of streetlight rolling across hood.
Double Vanity evokes a shared nostalgia for the past and for the unknown future, as BRONCHO takes a turn off the wide freeways and into a world of intimate, intricate – but always universal – emotion.

MUTOID MAN Confirms March West Coast Tour Dates

Following the unforeseen release of their debut LP, Helium Head, in late in 2013, MUTOID MAN instantly spread through the rock/indie/hardcore underground like a musical pandemic, infecting everyone in its path.

 

Following only three sporadic live performances in Brooklyn to date, MUTOID MAN now declare newly confirmed arrangements to attack the West Coast in the coming weeks. A six-city run between March 7th and 14th is now locked, bringing the trio to San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Ana and Tempe on their way down to Austin to raid SXSW. Their prime objective in the land of brisket: invade MetalSucks’ fourth annual South by South Death SXSW official showcase on March 14th, the rest of the bill including Animals as Leaders, After the Burial, Ringworm, Iron Reagan, Whores and East of the Wall.

 

MUTOID MAN Tour Dates:

3/07/2014 Sub-Mission Art Space – San Francisco, CA

3/08/2014 Che Cafe – San Diego, CA

3/09/2014 Vacation Vinyl – Los Angeles, CA (in-store, space limited)

3/10/2014 Constellation Room – Santa Ana, CA

3/11/2014 Yucca Taproom – Tempe, AZ

3/14/2014 Dirty Dog Bar – Austin, TX (MetalSucks Official SXSW Showcase)

 

MUTOID MAN is the lumbering rock juggernaut which embodies guitarist/vocalist Stephen Brodsky of Cave In, drummer Ben Koller of Converge and Saint Vitus Bar soundman Nick Cageao on bass, and the contagious battery of sonic decimation the unit delivers is nothing short of face-displacing. The energy these guysnaturally create when they jam-out is almost unspeakable. A jacked-up album firing on all cylinders as well as a few nitro tanks and rocket boosters opened to the max, Helium Head is like classic rock on bath salts and a case of energy bars, resonating with an awesome tone created by the band moving into a Brooklyn warehouse for nearly an entire year attaining the properly foundation-crumbling amplification. Helium Head was mixed by Andrew Schneider, mastered by Alan Douches and features cover art by Santos Illustration, and released on CD/LP/digital by Magic Bullet Records in November.

 

Stream/order Helium Head HERE, and stay tuned for more transmissions as MUTOID MANannounces the next phase of tour warfare.

 

“Whatever demons have invaded these two men clearly aren’t the kind that are easily exorcised, but the pair does its best, making Helium Head one of the most blistering yet complex records of the year.” – Alarm Magazine

 

“Simply put, this is a tenacious unapologetic ripper of a record. The six tracks and lone cover included here are an adrenalized collection of Cave In’s careening prog heft coupled with Converge’s relentless drive. With no song crossing the three minute mark, nearly all tracks double as shots of aural adrenaline delivered right through the sternum. 4.5/5” – The PRP

 

“Mutoid Man plays superheavy stoner pop, and these songs are jam-packed with sugary melodies that sit on top of atomic-bomb-heavy guitars and are propelled by Koller’s signature dexterous, over-the-top drum kit pummeling.” – The Chicago Reader

 

“The songs stand as a testament to the members’ facility with such compositional tools; an intimate familiarity bred by decades’ worth of immersion, a level of exposure that allows them to turn what could easily become pretentious and showy into a singular whole, equally accesible and experimental, conceptually developed and frantic.” – RVA Mag

 

“…quickfire bursts of hardcore-driven, psychedelic pop metal that somehow manages to combine unrelenting heaviness with pop hooks and a good dose of prog-rock madness thrown in for good measure.” – Echoes And Dust

Tribal Seeds Announce Spring Headlining REPRESENTING Tour/Altar Bar PGH 3/30

“Their fun, positive, socially conscious music resonates with everyone who hears it. […]

 ‘Representing’ should only solidify them as one of the nation’s premiere reggae rock bands.” – NBC San Diego

 

“Tribal Seeds are still at the top of the game. Their addictive roots-inspired sound is always catchy and

 fits in perfectly with the vocal style” – Music Bailout

 

Most Anticipated Albums of 2014 – The Pier

 

San Diego, CA – February 12, 2014 – World-renowned Billboard Reggae Chart-topping group Tribal Seeds announce today they will release their fourth studio album this Spring entitled Representing. Tribal Seeds will celebrate the new album release by hitting the road on a 35-date national “Representing Tour” this Spring with support from New Kingston and Inna Vision. The tour will kick-off in Flagstaff, AZ on February 28th and includes stops in all major markets spanning from Texas to Florida to Vermont to Oregon and everywhere in between. Tickets are on sale now, here: www.tribalseeds.net.

 

While the release date, track listing, and album details are still TBA, Tribal Seeds is excited to announce today that the new album Representingwill feature Vaughn Benjamin of Midnite on the title track. Also featured will be past tour mate, Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid on “In Your Area”, plus reggae greats Don Carlos & Michael Rose, featured in “Blood Clot” and Herb Stock” respectively. Current touring partners New Kingston also make an appearance on “Fill It Up” and rounding up the featured guests is Tribal Seeds’ own guitarist, Gonzo who will display his singing talent in the song “Undercover Lover.” The forthcoming full-length album was recorded in Southern California’s Imperial Sound, a recording studio owned and operated by Tribal Seeds’ own E.N. Young (keyboardist/ backup vocalist) and interestingly the most Southwest recording studio in the United States. Tribal Seeds’ own Tony-Ray “Maad T-Ray” Jacobo along with the rest of the band members continue to produce their own music.

 

This forthcoming full-length album is a follow-up to their 2011 EP “Soundwaves” which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Charts.Representing also marks the band’s first full-length release since 2009’s The Harvest, a 14-track album that landed on the iTunes “Best of Reggae” list and peaked at #5 on the Billboard Reggae Charts. While the last Tribal Seeds albums were inspired by touring and the band’s desire to inspire youth to raise their voices, their new album strives to take that message even further. As Tony-Ray explains it,  “this album promotes and inspires a positive and uplifting message which you can’t help but vibe to.”

 

Hailing from San Diego, California, Tribal Seeds have become known for their spiritually driven, refreshing rock vibe they have infused with the roots style of reggae music. What began as a side-project – formed in 2006 by musically gifted brothers Steven Rene Jacobo (lead vocals, guitar) and Tony­Ray “Maad T-Ray” Jacobo (producer, keyboards, back-up vocals), Tribal Seeds has grown into a movement. The band is one of the most award-winning, top-selling, musically talented, and fan-adored artists in not only the reggae world, but also across the music industry. Tribal Seeds now boasts six powerful members, including: Carlos Verdugo (drums), Victor Navarro (bass), E.N Young (keyboards, back up vocals) & Ryan Gonzo (guitar).

Tribal Seeds has collaborated in the studio with top artists including Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D), Eric Rachmany (Rebelution), Kyle McDonald (Slightly Stoopid), and reggae legend Don Carlos. Over the years the band has shared the stage with music’s most respected artists such as Dave Mathews Band, Jack White, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, Skrillex, MGMT, Cee Lo Green, Jason Mraz, Matisyahu, Sublime with Rome, Taking Back Sunday, O.A.R., Pretty Lights, Pepper, Collie Buddz, The Wailers, Julian Marley, Stephen Marley, Slightly Stoopid, Gregory Isaacs, SOJA, Rebelution, and many more.

Tribal Seeds takes great pride in equally focusing on the art of producing high quality recorded music and the art of putting on an outstanding live show. The band maintains a strict regimen of tirelessly touring to spread their positive vibes and contagious tunes across the nation and beyond – playing shows as far as Mexico, Guam, and Aruba to continue expanding their reach. The band consistently performs for sold-out crowds and impressively has the keen ability to both cater to their fanbase while still pushing the limits of their music. The formula is working – Tribal Seeds currently boasts 190,000+ Facebook fans, 25,000+ Twitter followers, a true representation of the network of steadfast fans that remain the heartbeat, pulse, and inspiration for the band.

 

Tribal Seeds will release Representing this Spring and kick-off the Representing Tour on February 28th. For more details visitwww.tribalseeds.net.

Heavy Glow To Release “Mine All Mine” TOMORROW Via Their Website!

“steeped in psyche-soaked proto-metal, gutbucket garage rock and bone-deep 70s blooze…”-Classic Rock Magazine

“Mine All Mine” is part of the 7″ they’ll be touring to support in 2013 and will be released on their website tomorrow 11/8/12 …check it out here

Psychedelic blues rock band Heavy Glow displays a mastery of confidence and emotive power in their untitled follow-up to the highly acclaimed album “Midnight Moan.” To be released in 2013 under Purge Records and with the addition of a new drummer, the new album is a culmination of everything the band has been working towards since forming in 2008. The finished product flaunts nuances of retro rock through hard-and-heavy guitar tones, bombastic drum-playing and suave bass lines. Front man Mullins injects raw soul into his entrancing vocal melodies and cascading choral harmonies to create a sound that is both informed by the past and undeniably modern.

Heavy Glow started with an Internet ad, drums, and a bass guitar. Hailing from the rustbelt city of Cleveland, Ohio, drummer Jared Mullins moved to San Diego and began posting ads on Craigslist looking for a bass player. Joe Brooks responded. After Jared switched from playing drums to playing guitar and singing, the two formed Heavy Glow: heavy rock with a glow of sensual swagger. The band soon caught the attention of legendary producer and renowned guitarist Stevie Salas with whom they recorded their first EP in just four days at Velvet Revolver’s private studio. “Heavy Glow,” the self-titled EP, was released to favorable reviews and garnered international airplay. FOX’s television series “The Good Guys” played the track “Grinning in the Dark” in its second episode. In 2009, the band signed to Australian record label StockXChange Music Group/Sony Australia and agreed to a publishing deal soon after.

StockXChange Music unexpectedly disbanded in early 2010 without compensating the band for EP sales. Determined to move forward, the band independently recorded “The Filth & The Fury” in one, six-hour live studio recording. The resulting five tracks captured the energy and skill unique to a live performance. Classic Rock Magazine UK distributed the song “Hot Mess” in a sampler CD for its July issue. “The Filth & The Fury” was nominated for Best Rock Album of the Year at the 2010 San Diego Music Awards. Following the album’s success, the band toured throughout the southwestern United States.

“Midnight Moan”, the band’s first full-length album, was independently released in 2011. Recorded in under a week, the nine-track album explored darker and sometimes murky themes but still managed to receive rave reviews. Mullins permeates his soulful lyrics throughout a wide variety of rock subgenres from 60’s psychedelia to 70s AM radio, heavy sludge, and even Delta Blues.

Drummer Andrew Hoffman officially joined the band in March of 2012 after the band’s appearance at SXSW. Adding a tasteful balance of jazz-inspired flourishes and thunderous athleticism, Hoffman’s beats can be heard on the upcoming album.

Fans of every music genre have been pleasantly surprised by the band’s unique sound with radio play in over 22 different countries and countless international press reviews.

The band’s west coast tour from San Diego to Seattle kicks off in January. Following the 2013 album release, the band will embark on an extensive European tour.

Jared is the rock. Joe is the roll. Andrew is the life-blood. Together they are Heavy Glow.
