Tonight Alive Bring The Get Free Tour to Millvale 3.1/Co-Headlined with Silverstein and support from Broadside and Picturesque

Tonight Alive are celebrating their worldwide charting positions for Underworld. Including the #1 Australian Artists Chart and #11 ARIA Albums Chart in Australia, #4 Current Alternative Albums, #5 Record Label Independent Current Albums and #11 Top Current Rock Albums in the United States, #3 Rock Albums, #6 Independent Albums and a Top 100 Albums spot in the UK while rounding out the Top 50 on Canada’s Alternative Charts, it was an incredibly successful week for the band’s first release on Hopeless Records (UNFD in Australia and New Zealand.) Already heralded by press as some of the band’s best work to date, Underworld is available today on  Spotify,  Apple Music and  iTunes. Physical albums and merch bundles are available at http://smarturl.it/TAUWmerch.
This success has been echoed across radio with Underworld being chosen as Triple J Radio’s feature “album of the week” and the band’s latest single, ” Disappear” premiering as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1. Streaming services have been showing their love to the single along with “Crack My Heart” and ” Temple.”  Songs from Underworld have been featured in over 15 Spotify-owned playlists across the platform including New Music Friday, The Scene, Rock This and Crash Course and the band’s monthly listeners have reached nearly 900,000.
Most recently, Tonight Alive released “Crack My Heart,” the brand new single from upcoming album Underworld. On the track, Singer Jenna McDougall shares “The concept of cracking the heart is to allow the precious, vulnerable self to come through and be free. The painful, yet liberating experience involves the emotional and energetic decalcification of the hardened heart. The lyrics follow my conversation with a ‘winged man’, a conscious figure, who offers space and safety to do my healing with. In my experience, when you are seen as your authentic self by another, you come to recognise your reflection more accurately and lovingly. Crack My Heart is a tribute to the way that love from the divine masculine elevates and holds space for the divine feminine to flourish.” Fans can head to http://smarturl.it/CrackMyHeartVideo to check out the accompanying music video.

BOARDING HOUSE REACH sees Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. Written and conceived while holed up in a spartan apartment with literally no outside world distractions, White exclusively used the same kind of gear he had when he was 15 years old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation). The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain — crunching rock ‘n’ roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country — all remapped and born anew to fit White’s matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation. BOARDING HOUSE REACH is a testament to the breadth of Jack White’s creative power and his bold artistic ambition.

BOARDING HOUSE REACH features White on vocals, acoustic and electric guitars and drums, organ, and synthesizers. He’s backed by a remarkable new lineup of musicians that includes: drummer Louis Cato (Beyoncé, Q-Tip, John Legend, Mariah Carey), bassists Charlotte Kemp Muhl (The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) and NeonPhoenix (Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z), synthesizer players DJ Harrison and Anthony “Brew” Brewster (Fishbone, The Untouchables), keyboardists Neal Evans (Soulive, Talib Kweli, John Scofield) and Quincy McCrary (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Pitbull), percussionists Bobby Allende (David Byrne, Marc Anthony) and Justin Porée (Ozomatli), and backing vocalists Esther Rose and Ann & Regina McCrary of Nashville’s beloved gospel trio, The McCrary Sisters, as well as longtime collaborators like drummers Daru Jones (Nas, Talib Kweli) and Carla Azar (Autolux, Depeche Mode, Doyle Bramhall II). Singer-songwriter C.W. Stoneking also appears, contributing a stirring spoken word performance to the album’s “Abulia and Akrasia.”

BOARDING HOUSE REACH was produced by Jack White III and recorded at Third Man Studio in Nashville, TN, Sear Sound in New York, NY, and Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, CA; the album was mixed by Bill Skibbe, Joshua V. Smith, and White at Third Man Studio in Nashville, TN.

“Connected By Love” b/w “Respect Commander” is available now digitally worldwide and as a physical 7-inch vinyl single pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit, MI. The single is accompanied by a brand-new music video from director Pasqual Gutierrez – watch it now HERE.

“Connected By Love” was greeted with rapturous global applause upon its arrival earlier this month, withRolling Stone exclaiming, “The four-year wait is over” with the “blistering first single” from BOARDING HOUSE REACHBillboard declared the song “a classic White confessional blues burner,” while Entertainment Weeklycalled it “thrillingly weird…a searing, organ-lined plea to a former flame.” NPR‘s Bob Boilen raved: “Connected By Love” is “a blend of old guitar blues that is simultaneously on the edge of rock’s horizon.”

White and Third Man Records have also revealed details of their BOARDING HOUSE REACH-themed Vault Package #35, marking the ONLY limited edition of the new album. Vault Package #35 is highlighted by a limited edition, colored vinyl version of BOARDING HOUSE REACH that will be the only vinyl variation of the LP to be made available. Pressed at Third Man Pressing in the Cass Corridor of Detroit, the 180-gram, blue and black swirl vinyl edition features exclusive Vault-only cover art which dramatically depicts White’s stylized face and is printed on arresting holographic foil paper in the classic Stoughton tip-on style. The LP is further accompanied by a unique-to-this-package 12″ x 24″ insert featuring the complete album lyrics.

The BOARDING HOUSE REACH Vault package also includes a two-song demo 7-inch single, offering up embryonic versions of “Connected By Love” and the album track, “Why Walk a Dog?” The former take – billed here under its original title, “Infected By Love” – was recorded entirely by White in the aforementioned Nashville apartment. White found keyboard tones on this recording that the world’s most seasoned session musicians could not recreate in the studio and thus, some of those tones were sourced from this simple demo to be utilized on the final album version. Meanwhile, “Why Walk a Dog?” was recorded, like much of the BOARDING HOUSE REACH demos, alone at his private songwriting refuge. With its expressive synth and drum machine cadence, the track is overtly hypnotic even in this early state. Indeed, the “Connected By Love” and “Why Walk a Dog?” single provides a fascinating insight into White’s process, revealing the creative progression of his songs from inception to completion.

In addition to the recorded material, Vault Package #35 comes with three separate and exclusive photographs shot during BOARDING HOUSE REACH recording sessions. Taken by noted photographer – and White’s longtime friend – David Swanson at Sear Sound in New York and Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, these large-format, high quality glossy reproductions are exclusive to the Vault. The photographs will be coupled with three foil-stamped poetry broadsides, printed on silky metallic papers (black, white, and blue) containing White’s poems from the new album tracks, “Abulia and Akrasia,” “Ezmerelda Steals the Show,” and “Get in the Mind Shaft.”

Lastly, BOARDING HOUSE REACH Vault Package #35 will also include, for the third year running, a custom 2018 Third Man Records challenge coin, complete with album-specific artwork. The substantial and stylish coin doubles as a 45 adaptor and grants its holder 10% off purchases in both Third Man Records storefronts. Past Third Man Challenge coins will no longer be valid at Third Man storefronts once Vault Package #35 ships.

Third Man Vault subscriptions are open now through January 31. All BOARDING HOUSE REACH Vault packages will ship to arrive on and as close to the album’s official March 23 street date. Learn more about this package, additional Vault benefits and subscribe now at Third Man Records HERE.

CONCERT REVIEW: GRETA VAN FLEET @MRSMALLS

This review could be VERY easily completed with three words, to be honest.  The night could be summed up as INCREDIBLE, FRESH and ENERGIZING.

I was very excited to get the chance to see and cover Greta Van Fleet. The only thing I wish was that they would have played a bigger venue. They SOLD OUT Mr. Small’s Funhouse in Millvale PA. Rather quickly too. And from what I was told, they turned away quite a few people looking to get tickets the night of the show. This band could have easily packed a bigger venue such as Stage AE or the likes thereof. But we can hope for that the next time they visit Pittsburgh.

The band that consists of brothers Josh Kiszka, Jake Kiszka and Sam Kiszka, and friend and drummer Danny Wagner. The three brothers are musically gifted and will be at the forefront of the music industry for many years to come.

The shows started with a ton of energy and finished the same way.  Josh’s vocal’s while VERY Robert Plant-ish, are BEYOND incredible.  What he can do LIVE is phenomenal. Let alone what he can do on a record. Playing in these smaller venues, there is no taped vocals nor anything mysterious to be done with the sound systems. At Mr. Small’s HE BLEW THE CROWD AWAY with his incredible range and power. I really don’t want to compare Josh to anything that Robert Pant ever did. Many currently are calling them very Led Zepplin-like. However, Josh’s vocals are fresh and more powerful in my opinion. Plus, he plays with his range and ability much more than Robert Plant ever did, so again, I don’t want to compare him to Plant like many have. However, as GREAT of a performer as Robert Plant was, I will compare Josh to him in that regard. Josh kept the crowd in the palm of his hand all night and left them screaming and hoping for more. Black Smoke Rising, Highway Tune and Safari Song were AMAZING. Simply jaw dropping with what Josh can do with his vocal range. Josh’s range and crisp tone were great and he is not showing any signs of wear or tear on his vocals. I hope he takes care of his talent. It is indeed rare and breathtaking to say the least.

Edge of Darkness, Flower Power and When The Cold Wind Blows were equally as impressive. Josh’s blew the roof off Mr. Small’s on Flower Power. Again, his range makes the song.

 

Jake Kiszka really brought a lot to the table on guitar. He’s young very gifted just like his two brothers. He did some great things on the guitar that only a seasoned very really should be doing. Josh’s other brother, Sam while quiet and mellow at first really stepped out of his shell halfway through the show and shined.  His talent on the keyboards also put energized the show. By the end of the show, Sam was really loosened up and having a great time. With Danny Wagner on the drums and the only one outside the family, he really shined. No real solo, but did have some time where he got to shine on the skins.

 

The encore brought Highway Song and The Safari Song. INCREDIBLE set enders and the crowd really was into them. There is really nothing more than I can say about this band and the show. If they are putting on the same exact show now on the west coast that they did in Pittsburgh PA, the crowds are getting their money’s worth and telling their friends that they need to see this band and buy their CD.  Which by chance, is being released November 10th. Their new CD will be available on iTunes then and I expect to sell very well and hopefully setting up another leg of an American tour. Hopefully, Pittsburgh and Stage AE are on it.

Andrew Belle @ Club Cafe // 10/18

Chicago-based Andrew Belle has made a name for himself as one of our more compelling songwriters since releasing his debut album The Ladder in 2010. Though that album held strong at number one for several weeks on iTunes‘s singer-songwriter chart and earned dozens of television and film licenses, Belle boldly followed a new muse on the album’s electronic, alternative follow-up, Black Bear. His third and latest album Dive Deep doubles down on the ethereal electronic sound of Black Bear, and sees Belle pushing himself to new depths as a songwriter, a vocalist, and a composer. Soaring choruses and moody arrangements abound on Dive Deep, a thoughtfully crafted and deeply felt album that deserves consideration among peers like James Blake and Bon Iver.

The new album is FANTASTIC – very chill vibes with pleasing electronic beats, comforting acoustic sounds and thoughtful lyrics. Check out the press love so far:
Paper Magazine premiered the first single from this record early last week, watch the video here: http://www.papermag.com/premiere-andrew-belles-new-video-for-down-is-a-testament-to-taking-cha-2437101408.html

Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery Announce “HALLOWED”, A Special Release Belgian-Style Ale To Be Released in October

Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery Announce “HALLOWED”, A Special Release Belgian-Style Ale

New Limited Edition Beer Available for Pre-Order Now, To Be Released in October

British rock legend Iron Maiden and front-man Bruce Dickinson have revealed a new Belgian styled beer, HALLOWED, in collaboration with Robinsons Brewery. HALLOWED is to be released in October for a limited time. Pre-orders are available now. (Image courtesy Iron Maiden Beer.)

Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery have announced that their latest collaboration beer HALLOWED will be released in October of this year, and is available for pre-order now.

HALLOWED is a 6% ABV Belgian-inspired ale packaged in a 330 ml bottle and available for a limited time only. The beer will only be distributed for four months, with details on where it will be available to be announced on Iron Maiden Beer and Robinsons’ social media accounts.

“What makes this brew pretty special is that we’re adopting a Belgian yeast for the first time,” said Bruce Dickinson. “I’m a big fan of Belgian beers, so I jumped at the chance to brew my own. While I get very excited about experimenting with new formulas and ingredients, the thing about Belgian beer is that it’s as much a way of life as it is a drink. We’ve tried to bottle that philosophy in HALLOWED, albeit with a British twist.”

The use of Belgian yeast within HALLOWED is a landmark occasion, as Robinsons hasn’t changed the yeast used in its beers since 1942.

“It’s all in the yeast,” says Martyn Weeks, Head Brewer at Robinsons Brewery. “Belgian yeast yields a very distinct taste and presentation. You can sniff out a Belgian beer simply from its aromas: fruity, spicy and earthy. Belgian yeasts withstand higher alcohol levels, they attenuate well and create an array of phenolics and esters… put simply, this means more flavor and I think Hallowed drinkers are in for a treat.”

The bottle art for HALLOWED will feature Iron Maiden mascot Eddie garbed in traditional monk’s robes as a tribute to the beer’s Trappist Belgian inspiration. The art follows in the footsteps of other collaborations between Iron Maiden and Robinsons. These collaborations include TROOPER, which has sold over 15 million pints since its launch in 2013, and the previous limited edition beers TROOPER 666 and RED ‘N’ BLACK.

About FELIX MARTIN:

Although Berklee-educated modern progressive/world fusion guitarist FELIX MARTIN’s popularity first exploded in 2012 with the release of his Live in Boston album via Prosthetic Records, he originally began shaping his unique performance techniques at the age of just 13. His unparalleled ability to perform a striking genre-blend of metal, jazz, progressive, world and Latin music while nimbly executing it with personally-designed 14 and 16-string guitars is what preserves Martin at the forefront of fusion music today.

 

FELIX MARTIN will release his new album, Mechanical Nations, on February 24. good portion of Mechanical Nations is inspired by industrialized South American locations and the hard work of the people. Musically, Martin’s goal with this album was to discover unique sounds on the electric guitar while blending rock and metal with a Latin spark.

COLD FELL: Manchester-Based Black Metal Act To Release Irwell LP Through Argento Records In March

unnamed-3Argento Records confirms the March release of Irwell, the debut album from Manchester, UK-based black metal outfit, COLD FELL.
named after a mountain in the Northern Pennines, COLD FELL‘s music reflects the outsider spirit and abrasive landscape which surrounds them. Aiming to reflect images of the crumbling provincial towns and hostile moors of the North of England, COLD FELL deliver these visions through heavy and ugly black metal, influenced as much by contemporary death metal as the black metal greats of old.
Irwell, the band’s first proper full-length recorded document, focuses on the grim truth of dead-end satellite towns and weekend violence. Over the course of seven tracks, the album paints a depressing picture of England in the modern age and explores how humanity’s baser instincts and neuroses manifest in this setting.

Quoting Laurence Taylor, singer and lyricist of COLD FELL, “Irwell is the result of almost four years’ work. As a band, we have strived to create black metal which is straightforward and aggressive but original without veering into self-indulgent ‘avant garde’ territory- the diverse range of influences should be evident to the seasoned listener of black metal and its surrounding genres. Conceptually, the album presents the listener with the unpleasant facts of life, set against the fume-choked backdrop of provincial Northern towns and decaying cities.”
Offers Mark Mc Coy about the artwork, “When Laurence mentioned Irwell as the title, I was immediately struck by the horror of being swallowed up in the earth. By extension, the sinking figure looking up conveys an ultimate truth about death-that we go regardless. This is mirrored on the back with an aerial view of water depicting its ability to conceal. CCTV cameras entrenched in fog to convey the inevitability of violence. Not only is it somehow more disturbing to be murdered in broad daylight, but the fog suggests that, despite the attempts at vigilance, no one is safe.”

“RISE OR DIE,” CO-WRITTEN BY VAMPS AND RICHARD Z.

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 19, 2016) VAMPS, the visually arresting Japanese rock band featuring HYDE (L’Arc-en-Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust), are back! There is a swell of activity surrounding the band, including new songs with major guests, a Fall 2016 headline tour across North America and working on their next full-length album.
VAMPS just dropped not one but two songs with blockbuster features: “Inside of Me” features Chris Motionless from Motionless in White, while “Rise or Die” was co-written with Emigrate and Rammstein guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe.
The songs are available via Spinefarm Records now. Get them on iTunes and Apple Music HERE or stream them on Spotify HERE. For a preview of the new tracks, go HERE and check out the official music video for “Inside of Me.”
HYDE spoke about the new material, which was written and recorded earlier this year in Los Angeles with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, 3 Doors Down). “The recording session with Howard Benson and his team was very creative,” Hyde said. “I truly enjoyed writing and recording these new songs. ‘Inside of Me’ contains themes of the forbidden and abstinence. ‘Rise or Die’ is a very catchy rock song that gets the audience pumped up when we play it live. I hope everyone likes these new songs.”
VAMPS will also crash U.S. soil for November headline dates and bring along special guest CITIZEN ZERO whose current single “Go (Let Me Save You)” is available through Wind-up Records and has already climbed up to #23 on the rock radio charts. Find out more about Citizen Zero here.
It’s a welcome return to America for VAMPS and the first time they will tour the U.S. since their special guest stint with SIXX:A.M. in Spring 2015. The tour kicks off November 7 in Los Angeles and will hit select major markets across the U.S., Canada and Mexico throughout November. Tickets go on sale at 1pm EST today – see a full list of dates and ticket links below.
VAMPS are coming back to the States,” enthused K.A.Z. “We will return to some of the cities we performed at with SIXX:A.M. and APOCALYPTICAlast year. We will be playing some new songs and this will be a great tour. We are very much looking forward to seeing all the rock fans out there!”
VAMPS just concluded several sold-out shows in their hometown of Tokyo, Japan with support from U.S. rock heavyweights IN THIS MOMENT and Finland’s finest, APOCALYPTICA, the latter of which previously collaborated with VAMPS on the 2015 single “Sin In Justice.”
The rest of 2016 will see VAMPS working on the follow up album to 2015’s Bloodsuckers and the band expects to return to the U.S. for more shows next spring.

FATES WARNING – Debut video clip for “Seven Stars” via Billboard website

FATES WARNING – Debut video clip for “Seven Stars” via Billboard website!
In promotion of their much acclaimed new album ‘Theories Of Flight’, U.S. Progressive Metal pioneers FATES WARNING are debuting their promotional video for the song “Seven Stars” via the website of Billboard today. Check out the clip, which was directed by David Brodsky for MyGoodEye / www.mgenyc.com, here:
FATES WARNING vocalist Ray Alder checked in with the following comment about the video:
“We are happy to debut the new video for “Seven Stars” from our latest album “Theories Of Flight”. This song is very special to me. The lyrics for this song were the first that I had written for the new album. I knew that my life was changing, I had met my lovely (now) wife who lived in Madrid, Spain and she was the inspiration for this song. I knew that I would be moving to Madrid soon, so the lyrics tended to come very organically. That theme would develop more as the writing progressed. Stories of change and moving on. Living life really. I found the flag of Madrid quite interesting. Seven white stars surrounded by red…Hence the inspiration for the title. I figured I would give a little tour of the city in the video since I’m now here. Enjoy!”
As previously announced, FATES WARNING will embark on a first European tour for “Theories Of Flight” in January/February 2017. Here are the dates announced so far:

TesseracT Release “Hexes” Music Video

TESSERACT RELEASE “HEXESMUSIC VIDEO
POLARIS TOUR EDITION “ERRAI” DUE 9/16
Featuring 4 re-imaged Polaris tracks
U.S. TOUR DATES SUPPORTING GOJIRA ON SALE NOW!

TesseracT - Hexes
Hexes” Official Video – Click Here To Watch
September 9, 2016 — UK progressive act TesseracT have released a new music video today for their track titled “Hexes.” Directed by George Laycock (Blacktide Phonic/Visual) and conceptualized by vocalist Daniel Tompkins and bassist Amos Williams, this is the second music video the band has released from their most recent LP, Polaris, which came out last year. “Hexes represents a vivid dream and distant memory,” says Tompkins. “One of holding onto the secrets between two people; a history shrouded in secrecy.”

“To maintain the intimate and personal nature of the concept, we knew that we needed a video director that didn’t simply understand the lyrics but someone who could connect to the intensity of the music, and was willing to work closely together in creating the right visuals.”

“On first contact with Blacktide we knew that we had found the right team. The video was shot over four different locations scattered across the UK including Leicester’s National Space Centre, where we filmed some striking footage from inside a replica of the Columbus module from the International Space Station; shot in the early hours while the centre was closed to the public.

Without a doubt Hexes is the most cohesive and impactful video we have made to date and we’re extremely proud of the end result.”

With the band’s U.S. tour beginning in just a few weeks, TesseracT has taken a look back over their summer 2016 festival season. Fans get the chance to go behind the scenes at festivals like Graspop, Rock Am Ring & Rock AM Park & Download with Dan, Amos, Jay, Acle, James and sound engineer Aidan O’Brien. They chat about how they prepare for these huge shows; how the new Polaris tracks have been gone down with festival crowds; what it feels like play in front of a home crowd on their first appearance at the UK’s legendary Download; find out which band member aspires to have his own beer tech.
Fans can listen to the new re-worked version of “Survival” here.
The Polaris Tour Edition will be released as a 2 CD set, as well as digitally, with Errai being released as a stand-alone 180g heavyweight clear vinyl with enclosed download code. The CD & LP are available to pre-order here: EU: Pre-Order | North America | Digital: Errai | Polaris / Errai 

Along with the new song interpretations, the cover art of new edition of Polaris has been given a 2016 make-over by artist Dan Mumford.

This September they head back to North America to tour with Gojira. For full tour routings and details of the 2017 UK tour with Devin Townsend Project. More information can be found here.

Agnes Obel, Mew’s Jonas Bjerre: “Golden Green” Video

AGNES OBEL UNVEILS THE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “GOLDEN GREEN”
DIRECTED BY JONAS BJERRE (MEW)
NEW ALBUM, CITIZEN OF GLASS, SET FOR OCTOBER 21 RELEASE
OBEL CONFIRMED FOR SXSW 2017
LOS ANGELES, CA – MONDAY, September 12, 2016 – Agnes Obel has released the mesmerizing animated video for her new single “Golden Green.”  Directed by acclaimed visual artist Jonas Bjerre – who is also the frontman for the Platinum Danish alt/rock band MEW – the video is available to viewhere.
“I was honored to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song,” says Bjerre.  “The bells that emphasize the rhythm through the song, for some reason they made me think of blinking lights, and glass – glass being a recurring theme in Agnes’s new songs.  As she told me more about the song, I started having ideas for some kind of internal world, maybe a world inside someone’s head, where various thoughts and feelings are in opposition, depicted as animated versions of Agnes, struggling to find harmony.”
“Golden Green” is available to stream now as an instant grat with pre-orders of Obel’s new album Citizen of Glass, due out October 21 on Play It Again Sam/[PIAS].  It is the second single from Obel’s new album following “Familiar,” described as “hauntingly beautiful,” “a pointillist, arpeggiating, strings-flecked stunner,” and “ASMR-worthy,” by the UK’s The SunThe SundayTimes and The Guardian, respectively.
It was also just announced that Obel will be part of the lineup at SXSW 2017, marking her second time at the event.  At the 2014 festival, Obel performed at the Central Presbyterian Church where
NPR’s Bob Boilen singled her out as a festival favorite, and the Austin Chronicle wrote that her music was “fiercely feminine and deeply powerful.”
Citizen of Glass is the follow up to 2013’s critically-acclaimed Aventine about which Paste wrote, “Agnes Obel exists at the crux where beauty and sadness are indistinguishable, weaving sedative piano whispers around tales of aborted love.  Her haunting compositions melded the primal, delicate and forsaken into one of the most gorgeous albums of [2013].”  The new album will be available as a Digital Download, CD with lyric booklet, and on 180g black vinyl LP + download code in a gatefold sleeve. Pre-order the album from www.agnesobel.com

Agnes Obel will tour North America in 2017.

Interview: pop-punk emo band from Canada, Marianas Trench

Marianas Trench: the pop-punk emo band from Canada that has been around for the better part of this millennium.  The group has gone through its ups and downs, with the most recent of downs resulting in the high that lead to the creation of Astoria.  The band has been touring for about a year, and has gone through the 10 year anniversary of their album, Fix Me.  In a recent email interview, we had the chance to talk to Mariana’s Trench guitarist Matt Webb about Astoria, the 10 year anniversary of Fix Me, and what it is like to tour around the world with the other members of the band.

Webb remarks that it did not feel like 10 years since the release of Fix me.  He also notes that the band’s sound has very much evolved since then.  He says, “We have a lot of respect for artists that continue to reinvent themselves, it seems to be an integral part of a lengthy career in the music business.  For that reason you’ll notice that Astoria doesn’t sound much like Fix Me.”  (Webb, 2016) The band has taken on a very 80s sound, basing the latest album, loosely, on “Coming of Age Adventure Movies.”  One such movie being The Goonies which takes place in the town Astoria.  Matt talks about how he and the rest of the group keep the 80s vibe going on tour.  He says the band watches a different 80s movie on the bus every night.  He admits that they do find other ways of keeping it up as well, stating, “I find you can keep the 80s vibe going as long as you’re wearing tight pants, rocking a keytar, and exposing your man-chest whenever possible.” (Webb, 2016)

As mentioned, the band has been on tour for about a year, travelling to multiple countries outside of Canada.  This means keeping occupied with activities, that, according to Matt, usually involve food and disinfecting the tour bus.  The band also stays at some interesting places on tour.  They find everything from dead rats in showers to kind old ladies offering to do laundry.  He says this doesn’t usually affect their shows though.  “We’re gonna rock the f*&k out anywhere we go, but somedays we smell better than others.” (Webb, 2016)  The band truly believes that the travel is well worth it, as Matt mentions the incredibly rewarding feeling of packing a venue.  An incredibly rewarding feeling is generated from filling a venue with fans that know every single word to their songs.  Lastly, he left with some advice for young musician who look forward to one day celebrating 10 year anniversaries for well-known albums.  Matt says, “Concentrate on writing badass songs.  Then work as hard as you possibly can to get them in the hands of as many people as possible.  Whether it’s through endless touring, online hustling, hand-billing, yelling them from the top of a mountain, ain’t nobody gonna get big if no one hears your shit.” (Webb, 2016)

Marianas Trench headlined at Mr.  Small’s Theatre in July of this year.  This was the second time they have played at the venue in 2016.  They are currently touring in the United Kingdom.

Interview: Stephanie Connell

Multi-Platinum selling Canadian pop-rockers Marianas Trench have released their official video for “This Means War” – the track is off their most recent album, Astoria. Check out the video below.
