SPOTLIGHT BAND: Italian alt-rockers Soldiers of a Wrong War and their new single, Yeah!

April 10, 2017

We are bringing the spotlight onto a great alternative rock band from Italy. Allow me to introduce you to Soldiers of a Wrong War. The band has released their new single, Yeah! which is off their second studio album, Countdowns. The new album is set to release April 18th and is now available for pre-orders viaiTunes. Bassist Adin Sulic comments, “When we wrote this song we were like: ‘This stuff sounds insanely like one of those rock’n’roll songs that make you wanna instantly dance and have fun!’. If you listen to the song, you can feel influences from the old school rock’n’roll scene of the mid 60s, early 70s, mixed with some alternative rock vibes from the ’90s. The catchphrase in the refrain, which is ‘It doesn’t make much sense, but I like it,’ basically represents the world we live in today.” “The infosphere is flooded with tons of content through social media every single day and it looks like you really don’t need a reason to like something. Even if it doesn’t make sense, if you [Read More]

Check out the track “Burn The Ships” from Blacktop Mojo, off their upcoming LP

March 8, 2017

We are only a couple days way from the release of Blacktop Mojo’s LP Burn The Ships. The LP is set to release this Friday, March 10th and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. The band comments on their title track, We all quit our jobs at about the same time to make this record and play as much as possible—that was our all in, no going back moment. It reminded me of a story we heard from the 1500s about a Spanish explorer that sailed to conquer a territory. Once they landed on the beach, he burned all the ships so all his men knew one thing was clear, there’s no going back. That’s what that song is about, and that’s the story of our lives at the point of the record being created.” – Blacktop Mojo You can take a listen to the title track here: This is one album that you will want to pick up! It is refreshing to hear such determination and rock n roll passion as in their music. Make [Read More]
