The Kings of Quarantine came together in 2020 after a discussion between Jason and Bill about possibly collaborating on a cover song. “She Watch Channel Zero” is the third installment in a series of covers that will be released throughout 2021 in an effort to bring some joy and entertainment to music lovers worldwide. “We hope to not only put a smile on people’s faces, but also help the touring staff that have been severely affected by the pandemic”, says Jason Rockman. One hundred percent of the profits will be donated to Roadie Relief, a fundraising effort to aid qualifying Roadies who have submitted an application for financial help.

The Kings of Quarantine have no plans of slowing down, with more star-studded covers to be released in the near future!

Almost everyone you know has seen a concert that has moved them. Those productions can take over 100+ traveling crew members to set up by the time doors open.

Before and during the show they sweat and hustle to get everything ready. After the show they spend more hours erasing evidence that they were ever there at all. Many of these key players work an average of 20 hour days, then move on to the next city to make it happen all over again.

Many of these crew members, “roadies,” have been doing this as a career for decades. Some of these roadies, while experts in this field, have never had any other job experience. Since the world pandemic, well over a hundred thousand of these people are left with no income and no financial assistance.

There are no concerts or live events for the foreseeable future. At the beginning of 2020, job opportunity ceased to exist and 2021 remains uncertain. Many are unable to claim unemployment as their expert level trade skills are not recognized and they do not qualify. This on-going problem is leaving 100s of roadies without a secure livelihood.

The government has fallen short. Contacting congressmen and women, senators, and governors to raise the issue has been met with no resolution. Their replies are a formal brush-off and roadies are left hitting a dead end.

The goal with this gofundme is to offer some relief to some of the dedicated people in the roadie community. Just like you, they have families, mortgages, car payments, and day care. Commonly these workers lean on their savings between tour cycles, but those funds have run thin or run out. Please donate if you can, every little helps.

UPON WINGS Featured on SiriusXM Octane’s ‘Women Rock’ Week

This week marked “Women Rock” week on SiriusXM Octane, channel 37, and UPON WINGS was among the great female-fronted bands featured and spun throughout the week. UPON WINGS’ new single, “Afterlife,” was released on Jan. 15th, and the band will be releasing their new EP, Afterlife, March 5th on Sword of the Spirit Records LLC. The EP features guest vocals and production from Brett Hestla (Ex-Creed, Dark New Day).

“It’s such an honor to be a part of SiriusXM Octane’s ‘Women Rock’ week,” frontman Anne Autumn Erickson said. “Octane has such a rich history of delivering genuine, top-notch rock, and it’s the ultimate source for new rock music. Thanks to all at Octane, and thanks to our fans for requesting us!”

Since “Afterlife” hit rock radio, the track has been featured on the likes of WIIL (Chicago), KXXR (Minneapolis), KTCL (Denver), WRKZ (Columbus), WRAT (Monmouth), WKRL (Syracuse), KQXR (Boise), KRDJ (Lafayette), WCPR (Biloxi), KGRR (Dubuque) and beyond.

The single is now available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.

Afterlife the EP can be pre-ordered now on iTunes.

Rock and metal fans will recognize plenty of names on Afterlife. Kid Rock recording engineer and Grammy-nominated mixing engineer Glenn Brown mastered the single, while Brett Hestla (ex-Creed, Dark New Day) provided guest vocals and production talents. More metal assistance for the upcoming EP came from producer and guitarist Kevin Jardine, best known as the guitarist of Canadian nu metal giants Slaves on Dope, formerly on Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s Divine Recordings label. Drummer Peter Tzaferis also contributed to the EP.

UPON WINGS combines operatic, female-fronted goth-pop with rousing rock and metal in a unique, ethereal fashion. Frontwoman Anne Autumn Erickson is a classically-trained dramatic mezzo-soprano, and her lyrics take listeners down a path of heartfelt introspection, pain, joy and faith.
