The Unlikely Candidates playing Diesel May 6

The Unlikely Candidates’ songs have over 10 million listens on Spotify and the band has over 210,000 Monthly Listeners.

“The sonics range from Led Zeppelin to The Strokes, with sleek, infectious riffage and smart, catchy vocals.” – Fort Worth Weekly

“… Unlikely Candidates bring poppy adult alternative that you’ll love if you’re a fan of bands like Imagine Dragons or Grouplove.” – NBC San Diego

“…the Unlikely Candidates was the biggest surprise at last year’s City of Trees shindig at Bonney Field, peddling some ultra sharp, melodically blistering alt-pop rock with just the right amount of roughness around the edges.” – The Sacramento Bee

“…soaring, sing-along-ready earworms with sky-high ambitions. It’s indie rock made for stadium-sized crowds… moving from the Mumford-esque acoustic anthem ‘Just Breathe’ to the electro-pop of ‘Ringer.’” – Aspen Times

“…this new direction finds the band successfully becoming everything Panic! at the Disco tries so hard to be.” – Central Track

“’Ringer’ could be the most fun alternative rock song of the year…The Unlikely Candidates should be household names right now, the band’s always been that good. With their new EP, they get to prove it. Here’s hoping that in 2017 they earn the rep they deserve.” – Alternative Addiction 4.5/5 Star Review

 

  • The Unlikely Candidates are currently playing throughout the US on their “The People’s Choice” headline tour as well as playing other select dates and big radio shows in support of their Bed Of Liars EP that was released on February 17, 2017.

 

  • MySpacerecently named The Unlikely Candidates the “…number one pick for who you must see at SXSW this year.” In the past, they were mentioned in The New York Times and Esquire as a must-see band to see at SXSW as well.

 

  • VEVO premiered the video their song “Ringer.” Watch it HEREThe video represents a massive global effort by the band who wanted to have people from all over the world participate in playing out all their interesting and weird ideas.  With the help of Fiverr, the world’s largest marketplace for creative and digital services for entrepreneurs and small businesses, they helped the band achieve a first of its kind creation resulting in submissions from over 27 countries, including some as far reaching as Macedonia, Sri Lanka, Egypt and Mozambique.  Other submissions that made it into the video were from the US, France, Jamaica, South Africa, India, Australia, Germany, Philippines, Ukraine, Serbia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Venezuela, Haiti, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, UK, Ireland, Argentina, and Greece. The video took Singer Kyle Morris over 200 hours over two and a half months piecing it together with director Adam VillaSenor

 

  • The band has played Bonnaroo, Firefly, Riot Fest and have toured with St. Lucia, Nothing But Thieves, Weathers, and The Moth & The Flame. The Unlikely Candidates were selected as part of Taco Bell’s Feed The Beat program, and “Ringer” has enjoyed extensive in-store play with major brands including Whole Foods and Guess Jeans stores nationwide.

ANTHRAX RELEASE LIMITED EDITION “FOR ALL KINGS 7-INCH BOX SET”

Anthrax are due to release a real collector’s piece to accompany their last LP For All Kings which really showed that the band may have started in 1981 but are very far from slowing down creatively. It is an absolutely stunning collector’s item for any Anthrax fan as this unboxing video will illustrate – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU3e4hwzBR8&feature=youtu.be There have been band members who have come and gone and come back again with that time period, but on wax and live they are clicking on all cylinders.  Luckily the band will be hitting Pittsburgh next month with Killswitch Engage and The Devil Wears Prada.

What makes the set special are the demo versions of many of the songs from For All Kings.  The raw intensity gives a “live” vibe that production polishing does not allow.  Of course, this might be an acquired taste for some, but true Anthrax fans and collectors will be thrilled.  The nuanced differences take a discerning ear at times, but give a bit of insight into the process of creation, particularly through the instrumentation working in syncopation.  Also, the box set has never released in the U.S tracks that were not readily available previously (Check out“Vice of the People,” the “new-to-the-U.S.” track https://goo.gl/DAqOML), as well as two cover songs, including an unexpected White Stripes tune (so perfect for a thrash make-over it’s sick).

Available exclusively in North America and released in conjunction with the band’s upcoming Spring co-headline tour with Killswitch Engage – “KillThrax” – thrash metal icon ANTHRAX – Frank Bello/bass, Scott Ian/guitar, Joey Belladonna/vocals, Charlie Benante/drums, Jonathan Donais/guitar – announces the release of the limited edition “For All Kings 7-Inch Box Set” (Megaforce Records).  The set goes on sale March 24, will retail for $79.99.

The “For All Kings 7-Inch Box Set” includes a removable lenticular cover and contains 10 7-inch vinyl discs featuring 20 songs – the 11 finished album tracks, two brand new covers (The White Stripes’ “Black Math” and the classic Kansas song “Carry On”), six demos from the FAK track listing, and “Vice of the People,” a bonus track previously released only in Japan and now making its North American vinyl debut.  The original album cover art sketch by Alex Ross is also part of this package, as well as a download card enabling the holder to access the Box Set’s track listing for free.

 

Each 7-inch disc features gorgeous, double-sided four-color artwork designed by Douglas Heusser with additional art by Stephen Thompson, as well as band photos by Jimmy Hubbard.  The tracks are pressed onto different-colored vinyl discs – red, green, blue, maroon, orange, most with a two-color swirl design.

 

“Doing a box set edition of ‘For All Kings’ was something that we’ve always wanted to do,” said Benante, who worked closely with Heusser and Thompson on the box set’s artwork.  “We wanted to do something special, something that was so much more than the original release, and have it be fun for our audience when they open it up, just be floored by the different colored vinyl, the artwork, everything that’s inside.  And we think we’ve done that.”

THE ROLLING STONES ARE BACK! “50 AND COUNTING”

image001

Tickets On-Sale Beginning April 8

 

The Rolling Stones, who rocked London and New York in 2012, announced today that they will kick off their “50 AND COUNTING” tour in Los Angeles at the STAPLES Center.  (Date TBA pending NBA/NHL playoff schedules.) The tour debut will be followed by performances in Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Anaheim, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia.

 

“50 AND COUNTING” continues the exhilarating celebration of the band’s first 50 years—five decades of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood bringing their iconic music and ground-breaking stage shows to audiences around the globe.

 

The Rolling Stones were recently crowned the ‘Best Live Band’ at the NME Awards in London, and over the past 12 months have thrilled fans with their release of a greatest hits collection, “GRRR!,” a groundbreaking documentary film “Crossfire Hurricane,” a photographic book “Rolling Stones: 50,” and have taken the stage by storm for their first live shows in many years. The tour is the band’s highly anticipated return to the stage.

 

“’50 AND COUNTING’ has been pretty amazing so far,” said Jagger. “We did a few shows in London and New York last year…and had such a good time that we thought…let’s do some more.  It’s a good show.  Lots of the classic stuff everyone wants to hear…with a few little gems tucked in here and there.  The stage is shaped like lips and goes off into the venue so I get to run around in the crowd.  It’s great fun to be able to get that close to the audience.”

 

“From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh.  You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it.  It was like…open the gates…let us out!” said Richards. “Cause man, it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people.”

 

Tickets for Oakland, San Jose, Toronto and Chicago go on sale beginning Monday, April 8 at 10AM local time and will be available at www.rollingstones.com.

Citi® cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning April 5 at 10AM local time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

 

“Our mission is to offer Citi cardmembers more access to the music and entertainment they love, and the Rolling Stones have been a soundtrack for the life experiences of so many,” said Jennifer Breithaupt, SVP of Entertainment Marketing at Citi. “We are thrilled to be providing exclusive presales and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for Citi cardmembers to see one of the most iconic bands in history perform live.”

 

Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-74, will be a special guest throughout the tour.

 

The band will treat their generations of fans to an evening of classic Stones hits like “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice,” and “It’s Only Rock and Roll,” curated with lesser known gems, and a cover or two.

 

The stage design for the tour is based on the band’s ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the crowd, allowing the Stones to interact directly with their audience.  Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.

 

The band will also play London’s Hyde Park on Saturday, July 6 following a headlining appearance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival on June 29.

 

The Rolling Stones “50 AND COUNTING” tour will be the band’s first venture with worldwide tour promoter AEG Live’s Concerts West.

SPIRALARMS Announces “Revivalution Tour 2012”

Heavy rockers SPIRALARMS rose from the ashes of millennial bands Systematic, Forbidden and Manmade God. This sextet has one mission. That mission is to uplift today’s music scene by bringing true heavy melodic rock to the forefront. To help accomplish that task, the band has announced a six day tour of California (and Reno, NV) that will take place throughout the month of November.

Directly supporting SPIRALARMS will be California rock n’ rollers ZED and alt-rockers SWERVER will open each show. See directly below for all current tour dates and learn more about the tour at www.facebook.com/Revivalutiontour.

“REVIVALUTION TOUR 2012”
SPIRAL ARMS W/ SWERVER and ZED
11/8 – West Hollywood, CA @ Whisky A Go Go
11/9 – Merced, CA @ Star Club
11/10 – San Jose, CA @ Blank Club
11/15 – Reno, NV @ Jub Jubs Thirst Parlor
11/16 – South Lake Tahoe, CA @ Whiskey Dicks
11/17 – Cotati, CA @ Spancky’s

SPIRALARMS

Friends since the age of 15, Tim Narducci (Lead Vocals) and Craig Locicero (Lead Guitar) bonded over their love of heavy metal and hard rock music. Although the two remained friends throughout the years, they both went their separate ways and started bands of their own. After years of playing with their respective bands, the two friends contacted each other and decided it was time to start playing music together again, and in 2004 SPIRALARMS was born. Rounding out SPIRALARMS is Cornbread (Bass/Vocals), who had recorded and toured the US and Europe extensively with the band Vicious Rumors, Brad Barth (Keyboards), Anthony Traslavina (Guitars) and Ron Reeden (Drums).

Last, the band is no stranger to the road. With multiple West Coast tours, a U.S. tour in 2010, the band is comfortable with the hard work of touring to build a core audience. SPIRALARMS has also been active playing out live supporting such acts as Black Label Society, MSG, Kill Devil Hill, and performing at Graspop 2007 with Iron Maiden. The band is currently finishing their new album, Freedom, set to be released soon.

ZED
San Francisco Bay Area’s ZED takes it cues from the greats like Zeppelin, Sabbath and AC/DC, but combines them with their contemporary musical influences such as Clutch, Rage Against the Machine and Queens of the Stone Age, creating a mixture that is new, yet familiar. ZED is Pete Sattari (Guitar/Vox), Rich Harris (Drums), Greg Lopez (Guitar), and Mark Aceves (Bass).
In April 2010, ZED released their first full-length album, The Invitation, which they had been brewing in the studio for over a year. The Invitation has a hard driving, aggressive sound but with solid groove that can’t be ignored. In June of 2012, ZED entered Sonic Room Studios with SPIRALARMS’ Tim Narducci engineering and producing their follow up to The Invitation. Word on the street? It’s their best work to date. The album is due this fall and will be included in their set during the Revivalution tour.

SWERVER
San Jose, CA veteran band SWERVER consists of Jimmy Arceneaux (Guitar/Vox), Dan Lawson (Drums) and Stevie Loveless (Bass). The band has been known to deliver heavy riffs, wrapped in memorable hooks, all served up with a slightly darker tone than their contemporaries. Tapping into heavy topics such as depression, racism, and various addictions, SWERVER reaches out to the fans who listen to music, rather than those who just hear it.
