Danny Worsnop releases new song, Little Did I Know

December 7, 2018

Danny Worsnop has had quite a busy year with extensive touring with Asking Alexandria. It is a wonder where he found the time, but he has just released a new song from his solo career. The soulful track Little Did I Know brings to life his emotive vocals and emotionally driven lyrics.  Danny comments on the new song, “‘Little Did I Know’ was the song that set the tone for Shades Of Blue. It is such a fun and upbeat feeling song that under the surface is a very sad and moving story of loneliness. I’ve been waiting a long time to get this out and am very excited and proud to finally share it with you all. Jim Kaufman and I spent a lot of time figuring out how this song should feel and the direction he guided me in with this song really sculpted what the entire collection of music became.’ Check out the new track here: Stay tuned for a busy 2019 for Danny.

A child prodigy on guitar, Jason rose to prominence as a teenager when he was one half of the technical guitar duo Cacophony, with his great friend Marty Friedman. In 1989, at only 19 years old and after wowing audiences all over the world, the young virtuoso became the guitarist for David Lee Roth, following in the huge footsteps of Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai. He wrote and recorded on his 3rd solo album ‘A Little Ain’t Enough’ and was poised for superstardom when a nagging pain in his leg was diagnosed as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Alt-rockers THIS LIFE release candid personal video for new song, I’d Lie About Almost Anything

December 6, 2018

London based alt-rockers THIS LIFE have released a  new song and video which delivers a candid and very personal look at the effects of drug and alcohol abuse. The track titled, I’d Lie About Almost Anything is based on personal experiences. ‘The track and video are a candid and vulnerable plea to anyone suffering from mental health problems associated with drug and alcohol dependency to overcome the stigma of asking for professional help.’ Watch the video here: Front man William Ellis says:  “Everybody needs help sometimes, and it’s time to ask for it. When I perform this song or look at the video it does make me sad, because it’s such a raw depiction of myself on display for all to see, but at the same time it’s a celebration to say ‘but I’m still here after everything’.” Directed and produced by Zak Pinchin, the stark black and white video focuses on the feelings of isolation and frustration that can come from masking mental health problems with drug or alcohol addiction.Ellis hopes that opening up about his [Read More]

It’s time to WAKE UP and watch the new video out now from rockers Swanky Tiger!

November 19, 2018

Wondering how to get through the week? With some nasty rock n roll from Swanky Tiger! Rockers Swanky Tiger  have just released their new video for their infectious track, Wake Up. Vocalist/Guitarist Oliver explains about the making of the  new video:   The making of the video was interesting, as we wanted to make sure we weren’t in it – that the story is left to stand on its own. The footage was shot by Virgile Jardin in Paris, starring Adélaide de Cerjat and Frédérique Rivest. I had met Virgile in France through his brother, the singer Hugo Jardin, who used to be in a band with us in high school, and was impressed by his video on Hugo’s project. When it came time to make a video for “Wake Up,” we thought Virgile would be able to conjure the right mood, so we had a few phone meetings, us in NYC and him in Paris, and we would basically go back and forth with the edits until we got it right. Check out the [Read More]

Architects released new record ‚Holy Hell‘

November 11, 2018

Two years after ‘All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us’, one of UK’s most successful Metalcore bands, Architects, released their 8th studio record yesterday. The making of the record was kept secret. Just two months before the release of Holy Hell the band shared the the first song (aside from ‘Doomsday’ that was released a little over a year ago) from the new record ‘Hereafter’. Shortly after that, tour announcements followed and two more songs, ‘Royal Beggars’ and ‘Modern Misery’. In many ways it’s a special record. Read Dan Searle’s statement on facebook: Our eighth album, ‘Holy Hell’, is released today. I always had faith that we would make this album a reality, but now that the day has arrived I feel a sense of disbelief. Two years ago we were just wrapping up our first stretch of touring without Tom and once we returned home we set about building this record from the ground up. It seemed like a mountain to climb. I’ve already seen so many kind things said about the album and that [Read More]

The Unlikely Candidates release infectious new track, Bells

October 12, 2018

  The Unlikely Candidates release an infectious new anthemic track, Bells. Last week the track premiered on Fox Sports as the network’s Thursday Night Football first listen campaign during the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots game. Frontman Kyle Morris “As a man walks through the crowd on his way to the gallows, he thinks of how he got there, what he’s become, and where, if anywhere, he’ll go once he reaches the end of the rope. ‘Bells’ is the ballad of the dammed. It’s about how pain, shame, and the law of man are all things of this world that are stripped away in the light of the last real truth. That we must all meet  Death as a friend or foe…naked, alone, and carrying all that we have done in this life.” Pick up the new single and take a listen here: https://red.lnk.to/Bells   More news here: “Bells” follows the band’s previously released jams “Best I Ever Had”, about a young love gone toxic, and “Oh My Dear Lord”, which Baeble raves as “The stormy song [Read More]
