.April 16, 2018 - Nashville based rock band Hogan's Goat has released the Official Music Video for their single "Shit Kicker". Originally premiered on The Gauntlet, "Shit Kicker" is off of Hogan's Goat's self titled, debut album. “We went out to Montana, fucked around, and summoned the spirit of the 'Shit Kicker.' No but seriously, from the moment we wrote it, we knew “Shit Kicker” would be the best representation of our style. A song about true grit, unwavering courage, and standing your ground. Our goal was to symbolically showcase the Shit Kicker that lives in all of us; no matter who you are, or where you’re from. We want to give a special thanks to Walter and Cassie Runsabove, who sat down with us after filming, and gave us a lesson on Native American culture over breakfast. We would also like to thank Curley, Ed Fick, and there rest of the Billings Road Dogs for letting us crash their toy drive, film part of 'Shit Kicker,' and play a few songs for them. That wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Montana Mobile Stage and Productions, too! Thanks, Charlie!" - John Salmon (Vocals).

Hogan’s Goat tracks mud on your clean carpet. Located in Nashville, TN the band slithers in the swamps of Rock N’ Roll/Metal. A shotgun blast away from the big leagues, HG released their debut album in July of 2017. The band received 20+ reviews, all with high marks. With sites likening them to Guns N' Roses, Mastodon, Red Fang, and Clutch, the band has the utensils necessary to stir the cauldron. Hogan’s Goat is bound to "usher in a new era of music."

RAVENFACE release new video for upcoming single FIGHTERS

If you think Rollercoasters and sticks of rock are the best things to come out of Blackpool, then you haven't heard of the UK Metal band, Ravenface! The band had been on a creative hiatus but we are thrilled to announce their return with a solid new video! This is also the debut release with Ravenface for new member Leah Woodward (Aliases). Ravenface have dropped a hot new video for their single Fighters which takes some inspiration from the hit movie, Sin City. The single is one of many incredible tracks from their upcoming album Breathe Again set for release later this year. "After a fairly light start with our first single, Fighters is a much more riff driven, heavier tune. The lyrics touch on a couple of concepts. The main being battling depression and picking yourself up from that and well, fighting!" "We worked alongside Rich from Dark Fable for the video concept and eventually landed on a Sin City type theme with very stylistic patterns on monochrome. It was a blast to shoot!".

The Room welcome new members in time for Album number three!

UK based Classic Rock / Progers The Room are very sad to announce the departure of the bands Keyboard player Steve Checkley, who has decided to leave the band to concentrate on the increasing demands of family life. Steve joined the band in 2011 and appeared on both Open Fire and Beyond the Gates of Bedlam albums contributing some great melodies and ideas for songs. That contribution continues on the bands new album to be released in the autumn of 2018. “We are enormously sad that Steve has decided to leave the band but we understand and fully support his reasons. Steve has been with us for seven or so years and we are going to miss his humour, mad ideas and of course his help developing our unique sound” - Martin Wilson, Vocals Woking based Mark Dixon will be replacing Checkley on Keyboards just in time for album number three. Dixon, whose musical journey started when he played in covers bands in South African hotels in the 80s, returned to the UK in 1993 before taking a diploma in music in 2005.

“We love the experimental side of Marks musical nature, he has a great ear for melody and intuitively understands the sounds that we want to achieve on the new songs” - Steve Anderson, Guitars In a further addition to the bands line up, The Room have added UK based French Guitarist Eric Bouillette. The multi-instrumentalist from Nice has played with prog rockers Nine Skies and RDSK along with tributes to Genesis, Bowie and Opeth. "This is an amazing time for us! Yes it is sad when you lose a great friend like Steve Checkley but the power and dynamics that we have added to the band is awesome. Eric is a very different style of guitarist from Steve Anderson but they complement each other perfectly” - Andy Rowe, Bass The band starts recording their new album at Outhouse Studios in Reading with producer John Mitchell at the end of April and the new line up makes its full live debut at Home Farm Festival Yeovil on 9thJune 2018.


A GATHERING OF NONE Release Official Lyric Video for “No Stone Left Unturned"!

One Last Grasp At Hope Out NOW!

April 6, 2018 - Alternative Metal Band A GATHERING OF NONE has released the official lyric video for their single, "No Stone Left Unturned," off of their newly released third album, One Last Grasp At Hope. Vocalist/songwriter TB says, "The song 'No Stone Left Unturned' is somewhat autobiographical in that it's about realizing you've made your fair share of mistakes and are trying to repair the damage those mistakes have caused. I've dealt with feeling that way numerous times in my life. The main idea is, as the very last line says, "and so you seek you'll find", meaning that if you've lost who you WERE, you have to take the necessary steps to rediscover that person and apply it to who you ARE now. There is a constant search for answers and a feeling of hopelessness in there that I think everyone can identify with, yet maintaining a positive outlook about your want and need to grow as a person.' "One Last Grasp At Hope is inadvertently a concept album when you get into the lyrical content along with the mood the individual songs create. Each track deals with an underlying sense of light at the end of the tunnel. There will always be moments of despair, sadness, anger, emptiness, happiness and joy. Each time you have any of those said moments though, one thing always remains, the hope we cling to for things to get better or to stay as life affirming and as joyous as they are at that very time and place. We grab at that every day. One last grasp at hope...."

A Gathering of None are a quintet comprised of musicians from all over the north, southeast, and southwest United States. AGON began as a one-man project, with TB (formerly of horror punk underground icons Blitzkid) recording the 2013 EP "Purging Empty Promises" entirely on his own, performing all instruments as well as vocals. Their second release, the full length Nothing Left to Lose, in 2015 saw the addition of long time collaborator Chris White on drums and Justin Travis Osburn on guitar. A Gathering of None made their live debut in 2016, adding guitarist Jeff Grunn and bassist Ken Belcher to round out the lineup. This lineup returned to the studio to record AGON's second full length release, 2018's "One Last Grasp at Hope." AGON draw influence from a variety of musical styles including melodic punk, 90's grunge and alternative, posthardcore, stoner rock, and progressive metal. Despite the breadth and diversity of backgrounds and influences, the band exists as five people all with the same goal in mind, to bring something nostalgic yet entirely modern and multifaceted to the heavy rock genre. If you like groove laden songs with heavy guitars, inhumanly proficient drums, prog rock bass lines, hooks a plenty, and more vocal harmonies than you can count, then you have just found your new favorite band.

A Gathering of None is: 

TB - guitars/lead vocals 

Justin - backing vocals/guitars 

Jeff - backing vocals/guitars 

Ken - bass guitars 

Chris - backing vocals/drums

As musicians, it is our duty to bring those experiences to life through our art.

Dean is a self-taught guitar-smith with pounds of passion combined with years of determination and an over achieving brain that yearns for endless knowledge. On the eve of his 13th birthday, the embers of a burning desire began an everlasting journey toward a blissful state as long as harmony and melody were at the helm. Growing up in a small town in New Jersey, Dean came from a working family, so when it came time to learn the techniques of the craft, it was up to making friends at a local music shop who would discuss the wonderful world of guitar and the endless possibilities. Through the years it became more of the bottomless enigma that he had to crack, so at every single VFW hall or firehouse punk show, Dean would study the hands of the talent on stage and their every move. Soon Dean was playing all of the live albums of any band he could find, down to the guitar spins and all. Hard work and dedication persevered because, before he knew it, he wasn't just playing the midnight blue Ibanez with a blood soaked pic guard and a Felix the cat sticker, he now had a (1 of 6) Marilyn Manson custom guitar that he worked for 3 solid months of the summer his Sophomore year in HS just to afford….Then it all changed…. From there the quest to understand this intrinsic world became even greater…. Even more addicting. The itch to plug in his axe somewhere and KRANK it to 11 was even stronger with this young, notorious adolescent. Naturally, as time went on, this grew as a way for this completely misunderstood teen to use this gift that he had so magnanimously received, to become a form of creative therapy. “JUST AN AXE ON MY BACK," that wasn't his motto per se but definitely the lifestyle that was led. By Senior year he had been voted most musical of his graduating class, not because anyone ever listened to him play, other than when his band DEATHSICK blew the death metal doors off the performing theatre during the talent show, but more because he had a guitar in a hard case with him EVERY DAY IN EVERY CLASS. The Manson guitar had its own table in his JR year Anatomy and Physiology class….Right by the bucket of cow eyes and baby frogs. After finishing high school and then college, he joined several bands out of the back page ads of local music billboards and magazines, many everlasting life lessons were learned. His first REAL jump to “success” was in 2011 when he joined up with his best friend Angry Jay along brothers at arms, Chuck Gowan and Zaki Ali, to form the super slow motion breakdown masters Darkness Descends, which lead to SIRIUS XM radio play and air time interviews, alongside two album releases and co-headlining stage spots on the both the Bamboozle and GOTJ festivals. These accomplishments only fed the monster. In 2013, all of those countless hours disassembling, painting and Frankenstein-ing of his arsenal of Amps and Axes, Dean landed his first 6 week full us tour as the guitar tech for Darrow Chemical Company. Before the completion of the tour, the lead guitarist Loki had to leave early due to a severe family emergency, so the band asked Dean to fill in on Lead Guitar, and it was one of the best moments of his life, it's every musician's dream. This was the moment he had been waiting for. Sure he was playing tons of shows for years, but there is something different about cruising Tarvan around the country basically living on $7/day for over a month, all in the name of PUNK ROCK. This opportunity lead to further touring and Tech gigs for bands such as Gotham Rd (tech 2014), Michale Graves (tech 2015/bass 2017 to current), The Independents (bass us tour 2015), Black Cat Attack (Lead Guitar various shows US and Canada 2015), GOTH from Portugal (2016 Lead Guitar various shows 2016) The Draf Ft. Retro Glam (Special Guest solo on single release collaboration), Children of October (Bass and back up Vox 2016), Alyxx (Bass 2017-current). That being said, it may seem like a lot on the plate of destiny, But Wait There’s More. Starting September 2016 Dean began studio time composing his debut solo album, justly deemed Life Lessons, officially released on Friday the 13th of October 2017 everywhere. This album consists of 13 tracks of true emotion and the precarious journey of dealing with the real things that happen in life from death and divorce, love and loss, and everything we deal with day to day that tries to break us down. This album stands as a testament to Deans constant strive to never just give up. This album is about having the strength to make art out of life’s lemons. Our relationships with our fellow man are constantly how one is defined, this is only the beginning. Dean is now a brand including (but not limited to) Music, Skateboards, Tattoos, Beard Oil, T-shirts, Characters, Guitar Pickups and more. Those who choose to do what they live-in turn love what they do.

April 2, 2018 - Hard Rock Band A KILLER'S CONFESSION, led by former Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis, has released the Official Music Video for their new single, “Angel On The Outside.” “This song is about a transition I went through in my life. Out from the last phase and into this exciting new phase! This video shows how decisions can change the course of your life forever - sometimes for good and sometimes bad. Sometimes we have to live with things we have done and we are stuck remembering what you’ve done and wishing you could change it and how we can learn from our actions and make better choices every day.” "The AKC beast will not be contained and are continuing to create new material. The addition of Morgan and Rocky have raised the energy up through the roof. The plan for 2018 is to write and tour and record the new album and tour and tour!" - Waylon Reavis "Angel on the Outside" plays the contrasts of quiet and loud quite well, providing a soundscape with triumphant, uplifting guitar, a blend of highly melodic and gruffly guttural vocals and an overall anthemic sound that is certain to draw in listeners. The longing in Reavis' voice shines through he belts with determination, "So if I can't take flight / I need the will to fight / And with my demons I deny / The angel on the outside / And when the sky turns black/ There is no turning back alive / And with my demons I deny / The angel on the outside."

ALL GOOD THINGS drop new video FOR THE GLORY

La Rockers All Good Things are back with their newest video ‘For The Glory’. The lyric video was released on March 9th.

Watch ‘For The Glory’ here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt1AR_i5dX4&feature=youtu.be

The band first made waves in the media earlier last year when they released their album ‘Machines’ but their back story is a very interesting one. A group of seasoned session and touring musicians came together as friends to jam and record some music. After putting their music online, they quickly gained a fan base and over 90k Spotify listeners per month. The response was so great that they decided to make it official and form a band! With its humble beginnings in the dark safety of the recording studio, creating epic theatrical rock for games, movies and trailers under the banner of “BATTLE ROCK”, the band ‘All Good Things’ was born.

Touring musicians, producers, songwriters, artists and friends - this group of seasoned music industry players began the project for the simple pleasure of making music together, but stumbled upon a sound and an energy that quickly went viral. All Good Things have had their music featured in TV, film, gaming, live sporting events (including the WWE) and advertising all over the world. They have hundreds of thousands of social media followers across YouTube, Facebook and Spotify, spanning across Poland, France, Australia, USA, Brazil, Norway, Germany, and ever increasing across the globe. With big hooks, heart palpitating tracks and lyrics that drive you to “Get up”, “Fight’ and “Never Surrender”, All Good Things have inspired a grass roots, super loyal fan base that continues to grow daily. This lead them to being dubbed by Classic Rock Magazine ‘The band created by their own fans!’ which perfectly sums up their origin. They also took this concept to create their previous music video ‘Break Through This Wall’ which was made up entirely of fan clips singing along to the single.

Watch ‘Break Through This Wall’:

Nucleust release new video for

'The Symphony Of Revenge'

Perth based Australian progressive metal band Nucleust have dropped a new and hard hitting video for The Symphony Of Revenge, warning - it's pretty graphic!

This track comes from the bands debut album Terra Cerebral which was released July last year.

"The instrumental of the track was written by guitarist Max Palizban with the story in mind, and vocalist Shannon Marston and Max wrote the lyrics together that tells the story of a fictional girl who is raped and her life is affected dramatically by this awful event. Her father who is unhappy with the result of an investigation decides to take matters into his own hands resulting in the demise of the rapist only to find that his vigilante justice, although momentarily satisfying did not remove the pain from his daughter's life. This changed all their lives forever not necessarily for the better. Some wounds will never heal." - Nucleust

Meet the Band

Shay William Graham Smith (Drums), Shannon Marston (Vocals), Max Palizban (Guitars & Back Vocals) and Josh Fox (Bass).

Nucleust are a progressive metal band from Perth, Australia who strive to deliver what can be classified as heavy odd music comprising of unpredictable combinations of metal riffs and motives. Having been inspired by a diverse range of genres from Classical Music to Doom/Goth Metal, from Thrash to Death Metal, and from Jazz to Progressive Rock/Metal; Nucleust creates music, which is a reflection of what is happening in the real world through their own screaming critique, backed by a distinctive sound of extreme 7 & 6 string guitar riffs, massive crunchy bass sounds and groovy heavy drum patterns.



Distant Bonds release self titled debut EP.

From London to Japan, three-piece alternative rock band Distant Bonds have been making waves in the music scene since early 2017 combining their catchy riffs, pop inspired huge choruses, crushing grooves and arena rock styled ‘Sing along’ hooks. They are now back with their new self-titled EP and it’s certainly a foot tapper!

Vocalist Ray Hikari who is based in both London and Japan says “Every song on the EP is either very personal or purely statement-driven. Some tracks focus on real life experiences and things that often play on my mind. The whole process for this EP just felt right. The material, the timing and the initial response from fans. That’s something you rarely see as a new emerging artist!”.

Prog-rock/metal act Quo releases TRAMA via Machine Man Records on March 6

February 27, 2018 - Machine Man Records recording artist Quo releases TRAMA.

Quo is a solo side-project from Nate Exx Gradowski of AutomatoN and Isolated Antagonist.

For fans of Queensryche, The Rue and Devin Townsend.

From Machine Man Records: "Created in early 2016, Quo is a progressive rock/metal journey dealing with the darkest human life issues with content dealing with death, loss, mental illness, the paranormal and loneliness."

"Trama is lyrically introspective but mindfully observant of the external world around the individual vantage point. Musically, its resemblance places one foot in the slight past and one against the rear-end of the future. Quo gives a new voice for prog rock/metal by blurring the lines and adding the atmosphere."

TRAMA will be released on March 6 in digital-only format via Bandcamp.


ALL GOOD THINGS drop new video BREAK THROUGH THIS WALL starring THEIR FANS!

All Good Things have released a new video for Break Through This Wall and it has been created with a unique concept that captures exactly what this band are about!

Last year Classic Rock Magazine dubbed them as "The band created by their own fans". This has inspired the concept of creating a video, made by their fans too!

AGT started posting on their pages about wanting fan videos singing / miming to their track 'Break Through This Wall'. Initially the response was slow but after a few brave souls made the first moves demonstrating their 'Shower power vocals', the videos started flooding in.

"After writing and recording epic rock songs for 5 years purely for the fun of it, people from all over the world started streaming. Buying. Commenting and making fan videos with our music. In early 2017 we decided to commit to becoming a real live band, releasing our album ‘Machines’ in October, and bringing on Miles Franco on Guitar to gear up for live performances.

While brainstorming about a concept for their second single “Break Through This Wall”, bass player Liz Hooper stumbled across a fan video from a guy named ‘Seth’ in Canada. Seth was rocking a passionate rendition of ‘Break Through This Wall’ and it sparked a crazy idea. What if we got all our fans to submit a video of themselves singing or miming to the song, and we put it all together and make a video?

We are so grateful to all of the fans out there who put their faces to our music and stepped up for a band that’s not yet hit the mainstream. We are so honoured to have them as the foundation of our crazy journey and that now they can say #IamAllGoodThings"

Andrew Bojanic, Guitar player and producer

All Good Things features Dan Murphy (Lead Vocals), Liz Hooper (Vocals/Bass), Andrew Bojanic (Vocals/Guitar), and Randy Cooke (Vocals/Drums) and newest addition Miles Franco (Guitar/vocals).

Occasional members also include:

Phil X (Guitars), Joe Pringle (Vocals) and Adam Longland (Guitar/Vocals).

Nucleust release new video for

'The Symphony Of Revenge'

Perth based Australian progressive metal band Nucleust have dropped a new and hard hitting video for The Symphony Of Revenge, warning - it's pretty graphic!

This track comes from the bands debut album Terra Cerebral which was released July last year.

"The instrumental of the track was written by guitarist Max Palizban with the story in mind, and vocalist Shannon Marston and Max wrote the lyrics together that tells the story of a fictional girl who is raped and her life is affected dramatically by this awful event. Her father who is unhappy with the result of an investigation decides to take matters into his own hands resulting in the demise of the rapist only to find that his vigilante justice, although momentarily satisfying did not remove the pain from his daughter's life. This changed all their lives forever not necessarily for the better. Some wounds will never heal." - Nucleust

Meet the Band

Shay William Graham Smith (Drums), Shannon Marston (Vocals), Max Palizban (Guitars & Back Vocals) and Josh Fox (Bass).

Nucleust are a progressive metal band from Perth, Australia who strive to deliver what can be classified as heavy odd music comprising of unpredictable combinations of metal riffs and motives. Having been inspired by a diverse range of genres from Classical Music to Doom/Goth Metal, from Thrash to Death Metal, and from Jazz to Progressive Rock/Metal; Nucleust creates music, which is a reflection of what is happening in the real world through their own screaming critique, backed by a distinctive sound of extreme 7 & 6 string guitar riffs, massive crunchy bass sounds and groovy heavy drum patterns.

Psycho Village release new video for 'Can't You See' and announce UK Tour

Austrian hard rockers Psycho Village are back with a new video for their track ‘Can’t You See’.

Having just completed an intensive European Tour with Texan giants Nothing More, Psycho Village are back with a new video for their track ‘Can’t You See’ and their next UK tour announcement for March 2018.

psycho vill pic

Psycho Village consists of Daniel Kremsner (Vocals & Guitar), Maximilian Raps (Bass & Backing Vocals) and Marcel Urban (Drums).

“Throughout our career as a band a lot of people have spoken to me about how hard and complicated their lives are. Most of this is related to failed relationships with loved ones, be it an ex-partner, parents or friends; but sometimes it is better to make a clean cut and try to do a fresh start.

Unfortunately most people still hold onto those past feelings, they can’t let go and then chase something that was not meant to be in the first place. The track ‘Can’t You See’ basically says: It´s Okay, let go, live your life”. – Dani Kremsner

Psycho Village have had three top 10 singles in the Austrian charts and are a band that really like to get out there and tour as much as possible. We see them return to the UK in March as they have recently announced that they will be touring with The Fallen State.

"We love coming over and playing the UK. The fans are very energetic and it's always a great atmosphere!"

About Doyle

Lodi, a small borough of Bergen County, New Jersey, is just over two square miles. There’s not much to suggest that the small village would be the birthplace of a world famous, blood-soaked form of music known as horror punk. Legendary acts The Misfits, Samhain, and Danzig all have their origins in Lodi, and something monstrous indeed lurks there. The poster child and originator of the genre, himself, has once again unleashed an evil noise on an unsuspecting world: Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein’s first release, Abominator, by his eponymous band, Doyle.

Released on Doyle’s own label, Monsterman Records, Abominator is a sonically thick and lyrically evil slab of metal that finds Doyle expanding in a logical progression upon the genre of music he helped create. Doyle’s first band, the infamous Glenn Danzig-fronted Misfits, helped create the genre of speed/thrash metal with their last album, 1983’s Earth AD/Wolf’s Blood- in fact the record has been revered as one of the blueprints for the genre by many of its most respected players, as evidenced by countless groups covering the album’s songs, not the least of which being Metallica. Abominator is not the sound of some punk guitarist gone metal- it’s the roaring return of one of extreme metal’s original architects to his blood-splattered drawing board.

Coming from a legendary band of almost mythological proportions, and having first worked with one of the most talented and respected vocalists of the century (the infamous Glenn Danzig), Doyle’s new project would need a singer with brass balls, cast-iron pipes, a suitably twisted mind, and his own vocal delivery style. Enter Alabama’s Alex Story of Cancerslug, a Southern fiend who’s sand-blasted scream opens the record, and the evil doesn’t relent until the ending growl of “Hope Hell Is Warm”, the album’s defiant closer. The man can scream and sing, and employs both styles to great effect, switching seamlessly from raw-throated roars to rough-edged, yet melodic, clean vocals. Alex’s live performances can only be described as unforgettable, disturbing and strangely addictive – a perfect complement to the already mammoth stage presence of Doyle himself.

The unmistakable sound of Doyle’s signature Annihilator guitar cuts through on every tune like a sonic fingerprint, starting with the snarling opening title track Abominator. The Annihilator’s tone is sharp as a butcher’s knife in the wrong hands and just as nasty- fans of the Misfits will recognize it right away.

On tunes like “Headhunter” and “Land of the Dead” the riffs are relentless, and if a riff could be described in emotional terms, remorseless. “Dreamingdeadgirls” brings a blackened-blues swing, and the doom-laden “Love Like Murder” shows a healthy appreciation for all things Sabbath. “Blood Stains” moves from primal sludge to ripping off-time thrash with ease. The album is just that- an album, a cohesive and well executed piece of work that takes the listener on a journey; albeit a bloody journey to places some fear to tread.

As befits songs as musically dark as Abominator‘s, the album’s lyrics are not for the faint of heart. Throughout the entire record, there is absolutely zero attempt to balance its evil with any sort of good counterpoint- penned entirely by Story (probably in blood), Abominator‘s lyrics are entirely and uncompromisingly dark. Music fans looking for feel- good anthems had best look elsewhere- those who enjoy strolling through the shadows will be greatly satisfied.

So how did this Jersey devil and crew wind up with a Dixie-bred howler? “After I had written all this music, I realized I had to get someone to sing this stuff- once I’m done recording guitars, all I can see is myself just playing that riff, ya know? That’s my thing, not lyrics and singing,” Doyle says, with typically blunt candor. “I’ve known Alex for a while, so I called him up, then sent him a bunch of the tunes. Two days later he sent me back ‘Mark of the Beast’, just like it is on the record. I said ‘That’s exactly what I want!’, and the rest is history. I only wrote the word ‘abominator’- all the rest of that stuff is Alex. He’s just crazy, man”.

It’s a match made in hell. But no metal band would be complete without a complete animal behind the drum kit. BrandonThe CrusherPertzborn (of Black Flag) delivers all the aggression and insanity necessary (and then some) with his exquisite musicality and showmanship.

So what can fans expect at a Doyle show?

“To get fucking pummeled, man. And then go home and ask themselves ‘What the fuck just happened to me?!?’, hahaha…” he replies with a laugh that this time, no joke about it, actually sounds evil. Loud, aggressive, and technically proficient, Doyle and crew are set to show the world how true horror metal sounds today.

So crank up Abominator until your speakers blow, check out Doyle on tour, and let the beatings begin!


From Ashes To New Premiere “Crazy” Song and Lyric Video, Prep New Album 'The Future'

February 1, 2018 -Rock band From Ashes To New have released their single and lyric video for "Crazy," premiering the song on SiriusXM Octane today. “Crazy” is the first single off of their upcoming LP, The Future, releasing April 20th via Better Noise Records / Eleven Seven Music.

Crazy” is the first look into the sophomore album from the revamped Lancaster, PA based band consisting of Founder/ Rapper/Programmer Matt Brandyberry and Guitarist Lance Dowdle with new additions Vocalist Danny Case and Drummer Mat Madiro. The band has gone through a few changes since they ended their last tour in December 2016.

“Pretty much anything that could go wrong to try and slow down the process and throw you a curveball happened during the last year since we came off the road, but we came out on the other side. “states Matt Brandyberry “I was in a very down mind frame because of what was happening with the other members leaving and the anxiety made it difficult to write at times but ultimately I found the right people to come together and we decided we were going to write the best music we possibly could and see where that took us.”

"Crazy" is a huge anthem for the people feeling caught in the middle of a situation and confused by it all.

Crazy is, at its core, a song about someone or something driving you absolutely out of your mind and feeling unable to walk away from it. I feel like everyone at one point or another experiences that in their lives” states Danny ”For me personally, I dated someone for a very short period of time and it felt like everything I said and did was wrong. I honestly thought I was losing my mind because I knew it was a bad situation, but I just felt like I couldn’t walk away. I think having that life experience really helped when we sat down and wrote the lyrics”.

Crazy” was recorded at Atrium Audio with producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak (August Burns Red) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Korn, Lamb Of God).

A hard-driving Southern rock unit based out of Palestine, Texas, Blacktop Mojo's fiery blend of post-grunge, classic rock, and metal falls somewhere between Soundgarden, Black Stone Cherry, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Founded in 2012 by front-man Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, the band eventually morphed into a five-piece with the additions of bass player Matt Curtis and guitarists Ryan Kiefer and Kenneth Irwin. They released their debut album, I Am, in 2014, followed by a heavy bout of touring that saw the group sharing the stage with a wide array of heavy hitters, including Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Candlebox, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Shaman’s Harvest, Pop Evil, Puddle of Mudd, and Drowning Pool.

In 2017, the band teamed up with Muscle Shoals producer Jimmy Johnson for their highly anticipated sophomore outing Burn the Ships. The album was released via the band’s label, Cuhmon Records, in March of that year to critical acclaim, and it’s first single, “Where The Wind Blows” reached #27 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, while the band was on its first U.S. tour that fall. Through that tour, they landed a slot on 2018’s Rock Fest, featuring headliners Disturbed, Incubus, and Godsmack, among many other industry leading hard rock acts.

At the beginning of 2018, the band has started work on its third full length release, as well as touring to support the second radio single from, Burn The Ships.

"Thanks. And Sorry: The Chuck Mosley Movie" Announced:

 

 

 

February 6, 2018 - Director and Musician Drew Fortier has announced his latest film project, a documentary about the late Faith No More / Bad Brains / Cement / Primitive Race Chuck Mosley. The film was initially conceived as a narrative on the legendary singer and musician's then burgeoning comeback, and Chuck originally agreed to the project through a typically irreverent voicemail.

Drew Fortier (Bang Tango, Zen From Mars) will return to a familiar spot behind the camera in 2018 to direct Thanks. And Sorry:

The Chuck Mosley Movie.

While playing a handful of shows on guitar for Chuck Mosley (Faith No More, Bad Brains, Indoria, Primitive Race) in 2017, Drew and Chuck discussed the framework of a documentary about the singer/songwriter’s life and his reemergence on the scene.

“I am incredibly excited to tell Chuck’s story,” said Drew, who also directed 2015’s Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie, “I believe everyone will be able to get something positive out of the finished project of what will be Chuck’s film.”

Chuck passed away unexpectedly on November 9th 2017, a couple days after leaving a voicemail for Drew… in his best Bane impression. 

“I've decided to go ahead with the video…I mean, not the video, but the documentary on this one, Chuck Mosley. He seems like a pretty expansive and explosive character. I think he would be perfect for the part of himself…” 

Mosley had recently completed sixty-plus dates on his Reintroduce Yourself tour and recorded a solo record with producer Matt Wallace (Maroon Five, Deftones, The Replacements). On November 3rd 2017 his band, Primitive Race, released their sophomore effort Soul Pretender, currently rising up the NACC Radio 200 chart.
