Shattered Sun

News image

Shattered Sun is an up-and-coming metal-core band and I was extremely honored and proud to engage these new metal artists. Being a Hispanic and sharing a love for the genre made this interview a bit special. How so? The entire musical line of this band happens to be Hispanic. My conversation with vocalist Marcos Leal was quite insightful; we touched on a lot within a short period of time. The direction and future of this newly minted project was astonishing. Shattered Sun is a sextet hailing from the small town of Alice, Texas. Their sound provides hard hitting riffs laced with Leal's unique vocal assault. The band provides ripping arrangements tooled in advance by its founder and guitarist Daniel Trejo along with input from their drummer, Robert Garza, who lays down some fierce acrobatic drumming. I can assure you it's a collaborative effort as the vocalist describes it and the musical foundation is laid brick by brick. Shattered Sun is a true testimony to the hard driving sprit of its members, a definite cohesiveness that eludes many bands today. They've all grown up in an area riddled with violence, gangs and drugs. All too often we hear how the...

Chiodos: Devil

News image

Chiodos is back with a vengeance on their fourth album, "Devil". The band has produced a sonic masterpiece that takes the listener on a musical and emotional roller coaster ride. Original vocalist Craig Owens and drummer Derrick Frost are back in the fold, and form the twisting and turning track for the rest of the band to ride upon. Keyboardist Bradley Bell, bassist Matt Goddard, and guitarists Pat McManaman and Thomas Erak play with wild abandon and stellar technical prowess. Owens uses every facet of his vocal ability to deliver the full range of emotions necessary to match his lyrics. He is the rare vocalist who can sing softly and sweetly, loudly and angrily, and everything in between. "Devil" is full of great songs of all styles of rock.

DANKO JONES TO RELEASE FIRE MUSIC ON APRIL 21 VIA BAD TASTE RECORDS/MRI

DANKO JONES TO RELEASE FIRE MUSIC
ON APRIL 21 VIA BAD TASTE RECORDS/MRI
 
Band's Track "Gonna Be A Fight Tonight" Selected As Official Theme Song
For WWE's Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View Event January 25, 2015

 
Toronto, Ontario -- Danko Jones has announced a April 21 U.S. release date for FIRE MUSIC via Bad Taste Records/MRI.  The new album is loaded with some of the most incendiary, fierce, and downright pissed-off songs the band has ever committed to tape.  In the past, Danko Jones' repertoire has frequently exhibited a physical and emotional release for those times when love is unkind, but with these songs the trio exhibits what happens when therapy doesn't work. Song to song, the listener experiences Danko's pent-up agitation that has been left to stew, getting expelled into pure, merciless, violent rock 'n' roll fury.  The repertoire unleashes a torrent of Misfits-worthy shout along hooks, as Jones crosses into a realm where whatever belief he ever had in love and romance has disintegrated into the darkest depths of a blackened soul.  In late-2014, the band issued a first taste sharing a clip for "Gonna Be A Fight Tonight" shot on the Motorhead cruise and at the Grona Lund amusement park performance in Stockholm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e04SBHtbfl4.

DIRTY HEADS START 2015 WITH ANOTHER HIT
 
Title Track "Sound Of Change" Continues To Rise At Alternative Radio,
Tour Dates Locked For Band To Stay On The Road All Year
 
Los Angeles, CA --- The release of SOUND OF CHANGE marked the return of Dirty Heads presenting a vision of continued growth and evolution musically.  From its moment of impact, the title has been a hit album at radio and retail.  First week sales placed SOUND OF CHANGE at #8 on Billboard's Top 200, alongside marking a #1 debut on the Independent and Alternative Album Charts, and #2 at Rock.  The lead single "My Sweet Summer" rose to the Top 10 at Alternative radio in a mere eight weeks, and peaked at #3.  The track has enjoyed robust sales exceeding 150,000 digital downloads.
 
The band’s second single from the album, title track: “Sound of Change” is off to a strong start. It’s currently at #25 on the Alternative Rock Radio chart and climbing.  The video for the song can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JEOtXfvYb0
 
The media has also weighed in with glowing editorial.  Esquire wrote, "Sound of Change is brimming with the kind of catchy hooks that keep you plugged in for both their complex tones and cheerful breakdowns… We want seconds of whatever this pop/dance/rap hybrid is serving up."  Entertainment Weeklyoffered, "The fall chill is in full effect for the parts of the United States that actually experience seasons, but for anybody wanting to hang onto the spirit of beach weather, the Dirty Heads have a pretty excellent balm. It’s called “My Sweet Summer,” and it has been a steady performer on the rock charts since the album it came from, Sound of Change, dropped in July."
 
To capture a glimpse in to the global footprint the band as established, simply look at the metrics of the band's presence on-line.  YouTube views are approaching 19 Million, while the band has had close to 47 million plays on Spotify.  At Soundcloud, the numbers are equally impressive exceeding 6 million.  Dirty Heads also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this Fall which can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/36IDZaZyS3U.

OKLAHOMA CITY ROCKERS HINDER OFFICIALLY WELCOME NEW LEAD VOCALIST MARSHAL DUTTON

In a statement released by the band via social media on Tuesday, January 20th, multi-platinum rockers Hinder have officially added Marshal Dutton as their new lead vocalist.

No stranger to the band and fans, Dutton has co-written and co-produced on every Hinder album since 2009’s All American Nightmare, and has performed live on multiple Hinder stages nationwide.

Long-time friends and collaborators, Dutton and Hinder’s Cody Hanson, Joe “Blower” Garvey, Mark King, and Mike Rodden have finally joined forces after the band’s two year-long search for a permanent frontman. 

In anticipation of the group’s fifth full-length album titled When The Smoke Clears, which is set for a spring release via The End Records/ADA, the members of Hinder are currently out on the road doing what they do best – performing live and visiting radio stations in support of their latest single, “Hit The Ground." 

 
PARAMORE ANNOUNCES “PARAMORE: WRITING THE FUTURE,”
Friday, 23 January 2015 19:53    | Written by Brandon Delano    PDF Print E-mail
PARAMORE ANNOUNCES “PARAMORE: WRITING THE FUTURE,”
AN INTIMATE EVENING OF MUSIC WITH PARAMORE AND THEIR FRIENDS COPELAND;
SPRING TREK TO HIT NORTH AMERICAN THEATRES AND FESTIVALS;
EAGERLY AWAITED DATES GET UNDERWAY IN LATE APRIL;
“AIN’T IT FUN” EARNS GRAMMY® NOD AS “BEST ROCK SONG”;
“PARAMORE: SELF-TITLED DELUXE” OUT NOW
 
Fueled By Ramen recording group Paramore has announced “PARAMORE: WRITING THE FUTURE” an intimate evening of music with Paramore and Their Friends Copeland, set to hit prestigious theatres like the Beacon Theatre in New York, Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and the Dolby Theatre (formerly Kodak) in Los Angeles beginning in late April. "It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close,” said Hayley Williams. "We've had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one. What wouldn't feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band's career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way. So we've decided to do one last little run with it. Smaller shows, beautiful theaters... and we're not calling it a tour, by the way. Each night will be a little event, or as we said just a few seconds ago, a celebration."
 
American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday, January 26th at 10am through Thursday January 29th at 10pm. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning at 10am on Friday January 30th at livenation.com. The tour dates will also see the GRAMMY® Award-nominated band appearing at an array of spring festivals, including Gulf Shores, Alabama’s Hangout Music Festival.
 
The upcoming tour follows the recent release of “PARAMORE: SELF-TITLED DELUXE,” an expanded new digital edition of their chart-topping 2013 blockbuster. “PARAMORE: SELF-TITLED DELUXE” is highlighted by a wide range of previously unreleased material, a new version of the “PARAMORE” favorite, “Hate To See Your Heart Break,” featuring duet vocals from Joy Williams (formerly of The Civil Wars). The release also includes the never-before-heard 2012 demo, “Tell Me It’s Okay,” two bonus tracks “Escape Route” and “Native Tongue”, and eight electrifying live tracks recorded this past summer at Denver’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater.
 
Paramore recently earned yet another GRAMMY® Award nomination, with “Ain’t It Fun,” the RIAA platinum-certified, top 10 hit single from “PARAMORE,” receiving a “Best Rock Song” nod for the upcoming 57th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. In addition, Paramore singer/songwriter Hayley Williams was named the first winner of Billboard’s “Trailblazer Award,” honoring her as a standout female artist who breaks from convention to make a unique mark and pave the way for new talent. The Trailblazer Award was presented last month in New York City as part of the ninth annual Billboard Women In Music Awards.
 
“PARAMORE” exploded to the apex of the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2013 release – the GRAMMY® Award-nominated band’s first #1 album to date. “PARAMORE” showcased a string of smash singles, including two top 40, platinum-certified hits, “Still Into You” and the aforementioned “Ain’t It Fun.” The latter track proved one of Paramore’s biggest singles to date, ascending to #2 at Top 40 outlets nationwide as well as to the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – the band’s first ever top 10 hit and their highest peaking song thus far on both charts.
