ETERNAL FREQUENCY Release Cinematic, Sci-Fi Official Music Video for “Step Up”!

Harrisburg, PA based Heavy Rock band ETERNAL FREQUENCY has released a dark, cinematic, sci-fi imbued official music video for their newest single, “Step Up.” Produced by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland of Atrium Audio, the music video for “Step Up” was directed and edited by Tom Flynn.

“’Step Up’ is our hardest hitting, heaviest material to date and sure to be a game changer. The song screams female empowerment and refusing to be pigeonholed in the industry. The video concept was created from the minds of Emelle (Lead Vox) and Justin (Lead Guitar) and inspired by Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal, Blade Runner, and CyberPunk. Emelle and the other members of Eternal Frequency are prisoners of conscience on the run from a yet unknown organization trying to pick them off one by one. The reasons on why they are wanted fugitives is a mystery until the story begins to unfold throughout the video. ‘Step Up’ is Chapter 1 of a fictional three part series that the band envisioned as a short film while the songs were being written. Emelle and the band must find out who is hunting them and why. Or maybe…just maybe…are the hunted actually the hunters?” – ETERNAL FREQUENCY

ETERNAL FREQUENCY Release Official Music Video for Cover of NINE INCH NAILS Hit Single, “Head Like a Hole”!

Harrisburg, PA based Heavy Rock band ETERNAL FREQUENCY has released the official music video for their cover of the 1990 NINE INCH NAILS critical and fan favorite Industrial Rock classic, “Head Like a Hole.” A faithful rendition of the 1990 hit single, the band balances the inherent rage of the original with front-woman Emelle Elizabeth’s soaring vocals, resulting in a refreshed anti-anthem that continues to ring relevant in today’s society.

“We’ve always known we had a pretty singer, now our singer has become the Pretty Hate Machine (haha). In all seriousness, it definitely takes some balls to cover a Nine Inch Nails song, but we think that we did it justice and we hope our fans agree. We try to pride ourselves on creating sonically stimulating material with layers and depth. That is exactly why it felt necessary to showcase our interpretation of some of Trent Reznor’s finest work to date.”” – ETERNAL FREQUENCY

The Red Paintings Announce December Tour Dates with Spacehog and Sponge




Los Angeles, CA – November 5, 2013 – Orchestral rock band The Red Paintings have announced they will join 90s alt-rock luminaries Spacehog and Sponge on tour in December. The Red Paintings recently released their highly anticipated, debut full-length The Revolution Is Never Coming (The End Records), to rave critic reviews. The first single “Wasps” is currently being added to U.S. radio playlists across the country and is now officially in rotation at KFMA in Tucson, Arizona and WARQ in Columbia, South Carolina.
“‘Wasps’ definitely stands out, and because of that it’s reacted quickly,” said KFMA program director Chris Firmage. “Top 10 phones already!”
“This format needs some ‘guts’ now more than ever,” adds Matt Lee, MD at WARQ in Columbia, SC. “‘Wasps’ is an incredible song that shows elements of Nine Inch Nails and Rob Zombie but with a new, exciting twist. Industrial beats with crunchy guitars but melodic vocals and thought provoking lyrics.”
The band will continue on the road through Christmas performing select dates in support of airplay. Additional dates will be announced, with the confirmed itinerary below.
The Red Paintings recently made their television debut on AXS TV performing two tracks from The Revolution Is Never Coming including the single “Wasps” and “You’re Not One of Them”. View the live performances now online. mtvU call them “dark, cinematic” with a dynamic sound similar in spirit to NIN and 30 Seconds To Mars. View the official music video for “Wasps” now online at:
Known for their visionary stage shows incorporating live art, human canvases, and theatrics, The Red Paintings are a multi-faceted genre-spanning act incorporating everything rock from alternative to punk to industrial. Ever since suffering a near-fatal seizure eight years ago, Trash McSweeney, the musical architect of The Red Paintings, sees color in sound, a condition known as synesthesia. His musical project has set out to share with the world a lifetime’s worth of ideas about what he has seen and felt.Often receiving comparisons to acts such as RadioheadMuseSmashing Pumpkins, and The Arcade Fire, The Red Paintings have shared stages touring with the Dresden DollsMindless Self IndulgenceSaul WilliamsThe PosiesMogwai, and …Trail of Dead.

LIVE, FILTER, EVERCLEAR, & SPONGE Make Summerland Tour a Killer Kickoff at Stage AE

Wednesday evening, June 19  at Pittsburgh’s Stage AE, the Summerland Tour rolled in with four stalwarts of the alternative music scene that once ruled the land of rock n roll.  Some people may have forgotten that these guys were even out there, but most of them are still making music and last night they all proved that they still have the goods to put on one hell of a show.


Detroit’s Sponge started the night off with an energetic set including hits such as “Plowed”, “Molly”, and “Have You Seen Mary”.  The band also played some new material, that can be purchased at Sponge shows, from 2013’2 Stop the Bleeding.  Lead singer Vinnie Dombroski climbed on top of the crowd to belt out the latter part of “Plowed” (‘say a prayer for me…’) and set off the ‘good time feel’ of the concert.

Filter began with material that Richard Patrick and new guitarist Jonathan Radke put together for just released effort  The Sun Comes Out Tonight including  “What Do You Say” and “We Hate It When You Get What You Want”.  But of course the crowd could not wait for Filter’s two biggest hits, “Take A Picture” and “Hey Man Nice Shot”.  The band certainly gave the crowd their money’s worth when Patrick unexpectedly went into the deep end of the crowd to sing ‘Nice Shot’ only to be hoisted aloft and then race down to the front to jump and hop with the elated spectators as the band wailed in wild abandon.

By far the most unexpected highlight of the night, LIVE was downright inspirational.  When Ed  Kowalczyk left the band and was replaced by Unified Theory’s Chris Shinn, most fans were skeptical that it would work.  That thought could certainly be put to rest by even the harshest of critics, namely this writer.  Shinn was absolutely stunning and has obviously breathed fresh life into the band who had a flawless set of hit, after hit, after hit such as “All Over You”, “Lakini’s Juice”, “The Dolphins Cry”, “Lighting Crashes”, “I Alone”, “Operation Spirit”, and “White, Discussion”.  It made one remember how much amazing music LIVE put out in their heyday.  It will be interesting to see if legal ramifications can be seen past and new music could be put together with this crew.

As host of the evening’s events, Art Alexakis pulled double duty, and came out swinging for his band’s set.  By the third song, “Father of Mine”, the band was really hitting their stride.  With hits like “Heroin Girl”, “I Will Buy You A New Life”, “Wonderful”, and of course “Santa Monica”, Everclear proved why their material is so important to the alternative lexicon.  With such a successful outing in 2012 and now in 2013 it looks for sure that we can count on more to come for a Summerland Tour in 2014.

Jonny Radtke of FILTER Checks in with PGHMUSICMAG (Interview)


Although Filter have been making noise since the early nineties in the music biz, they sure seem to have gotten much louder lately.  With a high profile snippet of their earlier release of ‘Happy Together’ playing on the preview of The Great Gatsby trailer to heading out on the road with Everclear, Live, and Sponge, Filter refuses to fade into band obscurity.  The June 4 release of The Sun Comes Out Tonight just goes further in proving that Filter have a lot more to prove and a lot more amazing music to make.

With the dichotomy of angry tones to sweet melodies sweeping the landscape of the LP, founder  Richard Patrick and new collaborator Jonny Radtke (along with producer Bob Marlette) have breathed some new life into Filter while recognizing the tried and true formula.  To achieve those results Patrick believes in adapting and improvising in the name of achieving results, fully aware of what he’s rebelling against. He addresses his unconventional methods with utmost conviction in his voice, “Let’s break the rules, let’s put a finger up to the establishment and do something wrong. If William Shakespeare was alive today, he’d be using a word processor. He’d be copying and pasting. Does that change things? Yeah, but at the same time, it’s flexible and different. It has to be done.” This perspective is evident on The Sun Comes Out Tonight‘s lead single, “What Do You Say,” an explosive track featuring Patrick’s rousing howl, hypnotic synthesizers, smoldering guitars, biting lyrics, and the triumphant resurrection of the pulsating drum machines that cemented Filter’s reputation for delivering a distinctive sound unlike any other band in existence. Patrick laughs, “It’s all drum machine, just like Short Bus! I like that we’re getting away with something that’s wrong. There’s almost this notion that someone like Skrillex is less of a talent because his music centers around making a computer do incredible things. Music is an interpretive art form.”

Filter comes into Pittsburgh to showcase not only the work on The Sun Comes Out Tonight, but of course previous hits like “Hey Man Nice Shot” and “Take a Picture” .  Pittsburgh Music Magazine caught up with new guitar player and co-collaborator Jonny Radtke while on the road with The Summerland Tour to talk to him about the new LP, working with Patrick, the tour, and more.  Listen below…

Formed in 1993, Filter has enjoyed significant success over the past two decades.  The band released their critically acclaimed first album Short Bus in 1995, a disc Rolling Stone praised as “a timely combination of grunge heat and industrial ice.” Fueled by the top 10 hit “Hey Man Nice Shot,” the album rocketed to # 3 onBillboard‘s Heatseekers Chart and went on to sell more than a million copies. They raised the bar with 1999’sTitle of Record which featured the top 10 rock hit “Welcome To The Fold” along with a blockbuster crossover smash in “Take A Picture,” a song that shot to # 3 on Billboard‘s Modern Rock Chart, # 7 on its Adult Top 40 Chart and # 1 on its Dance Music/Club Play Chart. The years that followed saw the band releasing three more albums – 2002’s the Amalgamut, 2008’s Anthems For The Damned and 2010’s The Trouble with Angels, while touring the world and amassing a huge international fan base whose members number in the millions. Filter has also contributed songs to several blockbuster soundtracks, including 2012Judgment NightSpawn (the Crystal Method collaboration “(Can’t You) Trip Like I Do”), Little NickyDemon Knight,StepfatherAnger ManagementCrow 2, Girl Next Door and Cable Guy among others.
