Die So Fluid toured with Mindless Self Indulgence some years back in the US and the road has seen us mainly in Europe since then. Now, finally, the stars have aligned with the release of our new album, The Opposites Of Light, for us to embark on another US tour with Wednesday 13 and Eyes Set To Kill. We’re grateful for the opportunity to get out and kill it in great company, connect with new fans and reconnect with old! It also means a lot to me personally, having relocated from the UK to the US, to perform here, having created an album very much inspired by that the impact of that adventure on my life. This is just the beginning of a much bigger adventure!

About Die So Fluid:

Die So Fluid are the modern incarnation of a ‘power trio’. Their sonic being possesses the muscle of metal, the angular cheekbones of post-punk, and the burning soul of vampiric desert torch song.

History:

Die So Fluid first surfaced in 2001, touring the country in the wake of their debut EP Operation Hypocrite, released on Sanctuary. They released a further single, “Suck Me Dry” with Sanctuary before forming their own label, Cartesian, and releasing their third single “Disconnected”. In 2004 Cartesian released the band’s debut album, Spawn Of Dysfunction in the UK. The album was universally well received and is still selling through the major chains of the UK and iTunes worldwide. Promotion of Spawn Of Dysfunction almost solely relied on the band touring the UK which they did tirelessly, turning up for over 300 shows between 2003 and 2006. Apart from pursuing a campaign of playing their own shows off the beaten track Die So Fluid supported bands like Drowning Pool, Vex Red, Clawfinger, Boy Hits Car, Feeder, Girlschool, Antiproduct, and The Wildhearts. Further promotion of the album came from a single release of the title track licensed to Retinue Records which was supported with a video featuring the babes and the fighters of a metal wrestling event.

Recording for Not Everybody Gets A Happy Ending started in 2005 with the album’s opening track “Gang Of One”. The finished recording was so good it actually caused a crisis within the band as they mutually agreed the pinnacle of what they had been trying to achieve musically on Spawn Of Dysfunction. But in the end it was this realization that freed them to explore a wider range of influences and styles. So songs like “Existential Baby” and “Test Confessional” draw on Al’s ska background and “Throw You Away” features an Egyptian string arrangement thanks to one of Drew’s colleagues in gypsy troupe, The Death Orchestra. The finished record is the product of multiple sessions scattered over a two year period. This ungainly recording schedule was adopted because the record was being financed by royalties from “Spawn” – as they trickled in. For Not Everybody Gets A Happy Ending Mark Williams was back in the producer’s chair at his new premises in the legendary Battery Studios building in North West London. The title track was partly fueled by the long drawn out recording process, and at the time, no prospect of a release. That changed in 2007 when the band found a new backer in Finland and finally Not Everybody Gets A Happy Ending was made flesh. The first single “Happy Halloween” was released worldwide on iTunes on November 2nd, 2007 and coincided with a Halloween festival appearance in Helsinki and Die So Fluid’s portrait by Paul Harries appearing on Finnish postal stamps. The esteemed rock photographer, and long time associate of the band, also directed the video for second single “Existential Baby”. Not Everybody Gets A Happy Ending was released in the UK in February 2008 to a great response and immediately entered the retail sales charts. The band then diligently followed the cascade of international releases – touring Finland, the USA (twice), Germany and the rest of Europe, appearing in nearly 20 different countries in 2009. As well as headlining festivals in Portugal, Germany, and Switzerland Die So Fluid supported Eisbrecher, Mindless Self Indulgence, My Ruin, Ill Nino, Maj Karma, and Prong.

New York — Wind-up Records and TKO have announced the 2015 SnoCore Tour will feature headliner Flyleaf, with Adelita’s Way confirmed as direct support.  Framing Hanley and Fit For Rivals will open the show.  Multi-platinum band Flyleaf recently released Between The Stars, on Loud & Proud Records.  The lead single “Set Me On Fire” can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLGH0H4Vr6Y

 

Flyleaf bassist Pat Seals shares, “We are thrilled to be headlining SnoCore this Winter. Joining the tour back in 2006 as a support act was such a formative experience for Flyleaf, and we’re looking forward to bringing it back to our fans in 2015.”  Adelita’s Way founder and vocalist Rick DeJesus offers, “We are very excited to be a part of SnoCore with Flyleaf.  This tour will be the most energetic, and exciting tour that will be out this winter. It will be a show no one should miss.” Framing Hanley singer Kenneth Nixon states, “It’s an honor to be a part of this SnoCore lineup.  SnoCore is a tour that I grew up always wanting to check out, but Nashville, TN isn’t particularly snowy, so I missed out on a lot of great tours. We are absolutely stoked to be hitting the road with Flyleaf, Adelita’s Way, & Fit For Rivals.”  Fit For Rivals Renee Phoenix adds, “We’re excited to be out with Flyleaf because personally, they’re a band I’ve been listening to since I was younger.  I remember picking up their debut album in 2005 and becoming a fan myself.  We also did a run with Framing Hanley a few years back and it’ll be nice to share the stage with them once again!”

 

The SnoCore Tour first launched close to two decades ago, and from 1996 to 2010 staged annual runs filling a void of minimal touring activity during the winter months.  In its first year, SnoCore showcased bands that included Sublime, Less Than Jake, Guttermouth and Shankin’ Pickle. Over the years Blink-182, Incubus, Everclear, System of a Down, Seether, Shinedown and Alien Ant Farm amongst others participated in SnoCore. Now, after a brief hiatus, Wind-up Records and TKO are proud to be uniting to bring SnoCore back on to the road.

 

The tour will begin on February 3, 2015 at Amos Southend in Charlotte, NC.  The complete itinerary will be announced shortly.

Tales from the Pit: Arch Enemy! War Eternal

arch enemy logo

 

arch5s

 

This past summer I interviewed Swedish death metal band Arch Enemy’s new vocalist, Alissa White-Gluz, former vocalist of the band The Agonist. You can read the interview in the next issue of Rock N Roll Industries magazine that will be hitting Guitar Centers in December, 2014. After meeting Alissa and talking to her about the change and following the foots steps of one of the most powerful woman lead singers in metal, I had no doubt that she would blow people’s minds during their tour. On November 12th at the House of Blues in Anaheim I made it just in time to see German metal titans Kreator who were direct support for Arch Enemy. Sad to say I missed Huntress, but I heard from my fellow headbangers in the pit that they did an awesome performance, and that their frontwoman, Jill Janus, had an epic wardrobe!

War Eternal is the first album release from Arch Enemy with their new singer, and was released this past summer.  Their set was a mix of old Arch Enemy and new material from War Eternal. I personally feel it was the perfect combination to satisfy new and old fans. Alissa did an excellent job on the new songs like “War Eternal,”  “As the Pages Burn” and “You Will Know My Name.”  What-is-more, she also took the older material to new heights with her guttural growl and demonic vocals.

If I didn’t already  know her, it would be hard to believe that such a powerful and brutal sound could come out of such a petite and very pretty young lady. She made this metal chick right here very proud! I was right up-front in the pit watching here command the stage. She is so captivating, and I love how she uses full body movements and hand jesters when she sings. She uses the whole stage, and also utilizes her mic stand as a prop to encourage the crowd to pump their fists! A fan screamed out: “I love you!” She heard it and yelled right back: “I love you too!” The fans ate it up and so did I. You can tell she cares about her fans, and throughout the set she engages with them all the time. She keeps the melodic style of death metal and the aggression in the vocals Arch Enemy is famous for. Highlight of the night was getting my paws on one of Michael Amott’s guitar picks: Security let me get in front of the barricade and Michael handed it right to me! Awesome show! I can’t wait to see what’s next for Arch Enemy! Oh, and other very cool highlight,  was seeing Doyle, ex-guitarist for the Misfits, standing on side of the stage taking pictures of the band and watching his girl annihilate!

Tales from the Pit: Judas Priest! Fall to your knees and repent if you please!

JudasPriest_logo1

priest21-1024x682

 

I have seen Judas Priest multiple times throughout my life, and each time has been more memorable then the last. A couple years ago, when Rob Halford sang with Metallica during the “Golden God Awards”, his health was not the best – he hit the stage with a cane, but he still roared like the Metal God he truly is. This past week, November 10th, was no different…Priest played the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles and showed Los Angeles heavy metal is not only alive and well, but is kicking serious ass! It was my first time seeing their new guitarist, Richie Faulkner play… ever! He fit right into the group. Richie knows how to work a crowd with his winning smile and good looks. He is also a shredder on the guitar; he reminds me a lot of Zakk Wylde in the way he plays solos. Redeemer of Souls is the first record released in six years since releasing the 2008 concept album Nostradamus.  After the departure of founding guitarist K.K. Downing in 2011, this is the first new music Priest has released since Richie joined the band following K.K.’s departure.

On my way to see Priest I was blasting Black Sabbath. Who would have thought the music before they went on stage would be Black Sabbath? I thought that little coincidence was very cool! I missed the opening band Steel Panther. I have seen them a bunch of time as well on the Sunset Strip. They are talented musicians and funny too, but I arrived too late to witness their set. It was about 10 minutes before show time, when I got there and the venue was packed-full of Metalheads of all ages. Priest opened up with a monstrous thundering roar via “Dragonaut” which is also the first track on their new album. There was a back-and-forth of guitar solos between Richie Faulkner and Glenn Tipton that kept the crowd entertained and fist pumping for more. The song that stood out most to me from the new album was “Halls of Valhalla.” When Rob Halford shrieks during this song, it’s a sound we all know and love that stays true to Priest roots! Rob’s voice is better than ever! He looked healthy and his iconic metal wardrobe costume changes were amazing!

The band sounded fantastic and they looked like they were having fun! Glad they played hits like “Turbo Lover,” “Hell Bent for Leather,” “Breaking the Law,” and “Living After Midnight.”  I was also delighted that they played “Beyond the Realms of Death” as it is one of my all-time favorite Priest songs! Overall it was a fantastic show. As great as the new album Redeemer of Souls is, the new material sounds even better live, so I highly recommend you catching a show!

Flyleaf_HOB_11-4-14_258a

On November 4 photojournalist Enrique Nunez  was sent to the House of Blues to catch Flyleaf on their Between the Stars tour. What makes their shows so special? Perhaps it’s how much they put into performing and connecting with their fans and audience. From doing special secret performances for VIP members, to coming down the stage to meet and greet the fans. You don’t want to miss them if they come to a state or city near you.

Be sure to get a copy of our next RnR mag for exclusive shots and interview with Flyleaf!

Watch the video as they update us on their tour and fun experiences!
