Watch the new video from RadioBlack for Thread (I Am)

June 28, 2017

  Rockers RadioBlack have released a new music video for their song, Thread (I Am). The kick ass song is off their debut self-titled album released earlier this year. The band comments on the video, “We shot the ‘Thread’ video in just a couple of hours. We wanted to find a way to capture the energy that drives our live show and we thought this video was a good opportunity to do that. Sometimes in a video shoot setting you can lose some of that energy and intensity, so when we started the shoot we decided to just lay it all out there the way we do live. I think that came across.“ Check out the new video here:   A bit about RadioBlack: RadioBlack is lead by singer/guitarist TJ Courtney, whose vocals and melodic songwriting blend grunge and 90’s inspired alternative rock. With drummer Derek Gledhill (founding member of Smile Empty Soul) and bassist Hayato Takano, a seasoned touring player, the ensemble makes for a powerhouse trio.   Prior to this new line-up, TJ [Read More]

June 1, 2017

  All Time Low have released a new single from their anticipated new LP LAST YOUNG RENEGADE.  The track is called Good Times and you can take a listen here and watch their new lyric video: Frontman Alex Gaskarth commented on “Good Times” stating, “Good Times is the first song we wrote for the album, and the cornerstone of the entire record. Writing this song set us on a path that would lead to this world of night drives, rain slicked streets, and the neon hum of a small town fit for escaping. Without ‘Good Times’, the LAST YOUNG RENEGADE wouldn’t exist. I’m thankful to have found this song in the creative ether, and doubly so for the reflections in the lyrics that inspired this big adventure. I won’t forget.” You can pick up the new album LAST YOUNG RENEGADE  this Friday, June 2nd. 1. Last Young Renegade 2. Drugs & Candy 3. Dirty Laundry 4. Good Times 5. Nice2KnoU 6. Life Of The Party 7.

Only days after their kick ass set at BottleRock, Foo Fighters release new single and video for “Run”

June 1, 2017

  Foo Fighters delivered a killer set at BottleRock 2017 this past weekend. The crowd had camped out early on the grass all day long, to get a prime spot for the final band on the JaM Cellars Stage.  It was great for us to finally watch them perform since the last time we had quite an experience at Salesforce Dreamfest in 2015. Our photographer suffered several injuries and a busted camera after what was definitely a Corporate Riot!  But fast forward to Sunday night and the excellent security and planning of BottleRock, there were no signs of any injuries or crowd control issues. The wowed the crowd and even hinted that they might have a full album already recorded. Check out the photos from their set: We are anxiously waiting for a new album and today we were treated to a new single and video for their track, Run. The video was directed by Dave Grohl and has the band disguised as old men. The track is a bad ass song that really brings [Read More]

Interview with Justin of Blue October ahead of their stellar performance at The Fillmore in San Francisco

May 20, 2017

  Earlier this week we headed to the legendary Fillmore as Blue October brought the Heart Go Bang Tour to San Francisco. We have impatiently waited for this date to arrive. See, Blue October was not just another band for us to cover, they are a band that had provided the playlist to my life’s ups and downs for the past 20 years. Most recently in March, during my Mother’s hospice care at home, she would lay next to me and listen to Blue October, nearly silent for days, yet show would respond and tell me she liked the songs. Her favorite during that time, The Feel Again, (Stay).  What a heavy song and yet, I truly clutched to those words… Stay… selfishly I wanted more time with her.  After she passed away, I could feel the dark depression setting in as it had with my Father 5 years earlier. But I turned to music and once again to Blue October. Their latest album, Home which shot up the charts to a No. 1 spot [Read More]
