Springfield, MA | August 3, 2017 – With eight studio albums under their belt, Massachusetts-based hard rock juggernauts All That Remains show no signs of slowing down. Their album “Madness” dropped on April 28th via Razor & Tie Records to an overwhelmingly positive response hitting #1 US Top Hard Rock Albums and #9 US Top Rock Albums charts. The band has already toured heavily in support of the project, hitting major summer festivals like Carolina Rebellion and Montebello Rockfest, among others. They also hit the road on a headlining run, catching up with a few friends including Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, and Motionless in White. The band still has a few announced performance dates left and will continue touring throughout the remainder of 2017, look for new tour info coming soon.

In the meantime they’re keeping things moving, today All That Remains has given new life to an unexpected cover of Garth Brooks hit single “Thunder Rolls.” Their take on the Country star’s award-winning tune, (one of singer Phil Labonte‘s favorites) is compelling, reworking the song in an epic way and making it their own. In an interview with Billboard, Labonte discussed the unexpected cover choice, sharing, “We’re continuing to push what people’s notion of what All That Remains is and what we’re allowed to do and what we’re willing to do, in what ways we’re willing to go and experiment… That’s always our point — How can we reach out to new people?”

All That Remains Tour Dates:
8/19 – Illinois State Fair – Springfield, IL
8/20 – Moonstock Festival – Carterville, IL
9/1 – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Sioux City, IA*
9/22 – High Elevation Fest – Englewood, CO*

No Resolve, check out this band from Detroit Rock City!

No Resolve

Since exploding on to the music scene in 2009, No Resolve has attracted legions of devoted fans with their high-energy, deeply personal, thematic songs. This five piece band from Detroit, Michigan features Oscar Pegorraro– frontman, guitarists- Jason Hatmaker and Matty Shea, bassist-Dennis Patterson and Derek Bjornson-drummer.

Since the release of No Resolve’s EP “A New Beginning” and single “Get Me Out” in 2012 they have received millions of hits across multiple streaming services, playing shows with bands such as Trapt, and Devour The Day and bigger hometown shows with the likes of Papa Roach, Buckcherry and Hinder.

When No Resolve decided it was time to start recording more music, they found the songs they’d written shared some emotional states and narrative threads of love, anger, pain and communication between lovers and enemies both real and imagined. These songs complete the album “Unity” a diverse collection of hard hitting, modern rock explorations, the recording of which was entirely self funded by No Resolve. The band took a no shortcuts approach by writing their two debut singles “The Pusher” and “Love Me To Death” with veteran songwriter Johnny Andrews who has wrote with Three Days Grace, Starset and records drums in the world famous Blackbird Studio. Musically, No Resolve both polished and expanded their approach, retaining their indignant, uplifting sound on “The Pusher” a postmodern mid-tempo statement with a dark message and “Love Me To Death” a major key whirlwind which calls to mind Three Days Grace and Shinedown. “What You Deserve” one of the last songs to be written and shows the bands songwriting capabilities with a melodic twist of high energy and a deeper meaning in this modern rock anthem of betrayal, all in the course of four minutes. In scope, palette and composition “Unity” is a more daring and successful leap for a band that already kickstarted their career with a promising debut.

Upon release “Unity” has landed the #10 spot on Billboard Heatseekers (East North Central,) #45 on the iTunes rock charts, and was featured on Amazon under the “Hot New Release” list. Also recently No Resolve won the prestigious Stagelight Monthly Music Contest hosted by Linkin Park.

Unity” was released January 6th, 2017

Otherwise Back in Action with New album “Sleeping Lions”

Las Vegas-based Hard Rock outfit OTHERWISE have triumphantly returned with the most visceral offering of their storied career. You’d be hard pressed to find a more fitting album title than Sleeping Lions for the band’s third full-length studio release. The album hits like a revelation, jolting the listener upright and transporting them from a dreamy landscape to a wide-eyed state of consciousness textured by humility and sandblasted by the winds that weather life. Sleeping Lions is set for a September 22nd release on Century Media.

Two of the new disc’s most impactful songs are “Angry Heart” and “Close To The Gods,” which are both available to stream now at the links below. Stay tuned to https://www.facebook.com/otherwiseofficial for all news updates and tour information.

Adrian Patrick (vocals) states: “The initial spark for ‘Angry Heart’ took place on a cross-country flight from New York to L.A. I was watching UFC on the in-flight entertainment and the fighter, Cyborg, was giving an interview in which she basically said, ‘I am a pretty nice person outside of the ring. I don’t know why I fight with such an angry heart.’ Upon landing on the west-coast, I told my brother about what she said and the lyrics just flowed out of me, like a molten poem of rage. For whatever reason, be it how our father raised us to fight for what we believe in, we completely related to Cyborg’s statement.

“Personally, I’ve always felt like I was waging some kind of spiritual war, but I didn’t know why, until my sons were born. Those two beautiful boys have utterly redefined the ‘good fight’ for me. Anger is a gift, if utilized properly, and we plan to somehow make the world a slightly better place by using that righteous fire for positive goals.”

Patrick further adds: “The track,‘Close To The Gods,’ is a reluctant acknowledgement of our own mortality. We’ve reached some of the pinnacles of worldly achievement; personally, professionally and physically, only to see them succumb to the trappings of human frailty. But by leaving this song, for future generations, as a monument to the blessings that true grit and perseverance can garner in this realm, we hope to enjoy even just a taste of immortality in the next.”

One can confidently call Sleeping Lions the most mature chapter of OTHERWISE’s impressive volume of work, but don’t mistake mature for soft in the middle. Quite the contrary, the band’s evolution is poignant both musically and lyrically, and they steer clear of the awkward growing pains that so many other bands endure. If you’re going to search the darkness for answers, these Sleeping Lions make the perfect guide.

RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA unveil new music!

unnamed-25

Wyoming-based Metalcore outfit RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA have unveiled a new music video for their song “Weight Of The World”. The video debuted yesterday on Alternative Press and is for the current single off the band’s new album, Cursed, which dropped back in March on Century Media. Speaking about the concept behind both the song and the video, the members of RV comment:

“‘Weight Of The World’ is an anthem that we feel a lot of people can relate to. No matter what your situation is, everyone has times where they do their best to keep it all together, but everything seems like it’s crashing around them. We wanted to portray that tension visually, and Orie and the Enlighten Creative team really helped us achieve that. We all meshed and had the same goal to create the vibe that would allow the listener to feel that much more connected with the song.”

Fans can also see RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA performing at Riff Fest in Clarkston, Michigan on September 29th alongside Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Halestorm, Pop Evil, Fozzy and many others!

About Righteous Vendetta:
The two years Righteous Vendetta spent crafting Cursed was time well spent. “We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to write ‘hits’ at one point,” the band’s frontman confesses. “If you get too much into that mentality, you can start to lose yourself. So as we made Cursed, we focused on what we were when we started: a metal band. And we wrote a metal album.”

Cursed is the soundtrack to Righteous Vendetta’s overall mission statement. “We’ve always wanted to have a positive influence on people’s lives, but in a real way,” Hayes explains. “We want to connect with people, find common ground, and develop real relationships that aren’t superficial.

Introducing….. SONS OF APOLLO

Color2017WilliamHames

INTRODUCING…

 SONS OF APOLLO

FEATURING EX-MEMBERS OF DREAM THEATER, GUNS N’ ROSES AND JOURNEY

DEBUT ALBUM, ‘PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY,’

DUE OUT OCTOBER 20th ON INSIDEOUTMUSIC/SONY MUSIC

APOLLO: The ancient Greek and Roman God of music and poetry.

SONS OF APOLLO: The new supergroup featuring members of Dream Theater, Mr. Big, Guns ‘N Roses, and Journey.

For the past few months, rumors have been circulating about a new secret project including former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian. Now, the time has come to make the grand and highly anticipated introduction to their new band, SONS OF APOLLO.

Reuniting to form SONS OF APOLLO, Portnoy and Sherinian have joined forces with Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force). Their debut album, PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY, will be released October 20 on InsideOutMusic/Sony Music. An album teaser can be seen on InsideOutMusic’s official YouTube page here: https://youtu.be/kPN2DttzlZQ

PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY was produced by the dynamic production duo of Portnoy and Sherinian, also affectionately known as “The Del Fuvio Brothers,” which is the nickname given to them over 20 years ago during their time together in Dream Theater.

SONS OF APOLLO got together very organically, as Portnoy explains: “Derek and I reunited shortly after I left Dream Theater in 2010 and we put together an all-instrumental touring band with he and I, Billy Sheehan, and Tony MacAlpine. That was my first time working with Derek since the ‘90s when he was in Dream Theater and it was just great to be working with him again. Ever since that tour, which was really just a one-off live thing, he has been nudging me to start a real, original, full-time band. The timing just had never been right, because I had too many other things on my plate. Long story short, the time was finally right to take the bait and put together a band.”

“Mike and I work at a relentless pace in the studio,” continues Sherinian. “The music is modern, but we have an old school soul. What is unique about SONS OF APOLLO is that we have true rock n’ roll swagger along with the virtuosity– a lethal combination!”

In This Moment Reveal Fall 2017 Tour Plans

unnamed-5

IN THIS MOMENT ANNOUNCE FALL TOUR PLANS

NEW ALBUM RITUAL OUT JULY 21

BAND CURRENTLY TOURING WITH MOTIONLESS IN WHITE

In This Moment will remain incredibly busy upon releasing their new album Ritual, out July 21. The band is currently in the middle of a headline tour in support of the album and will stay on the road through the rest of 2017.

In This Moment are pleased to announce that they will continue their wildly successfully “Half God, Half Devil” headline tour this fall, which will also see them making appearances at major fall festivals. Joining In This Moment on this leg will be Of Mice & Men, who will serve as direct support. Avatar will open the shows.

The tour kicks of on September 22 in Salt Lake City and runs through November. Fans can also plan to catch “can’t miss” sets at festivals: Rock Allegiance (Philadelphia), Louder Than Life (Louisville), Open Air (Houston), and Aftershock (Sacramento).

The anticipation for Ritual continues to burn at a fevered pitch, with fans packing each show on the current tour. First single “Oh Lord” has been met with praise. It steadily climbed the radio charts and has just cracked the Top 10; watch the video here. The band also shared the new track “Roots” leading into release; listen to the song here.

In This Moment also dropped their sonically arresting and dramatic reimagining of Phil Collins’ beloved ’80s classic “In the Air Tonight,” which lives on Ritual and has been incorporated into the band’s live set. In This Moment have truly made the song their own, thanks to a captivating rendition that both preserves and updates all the tension and release of the original. Listen here.

Ritual will be released by Atlantic Records in partnership with Roadrunner Records and is available for pre-order now. Exclusive pre-order bundles, which include custom In This Moment branded rosary beads, are available now at the band’s webstore.

Ritual sees In This Moment pushing their inimitably dark sound forward with a provocative sense of pervading doom and metallic blues power. Additional highlights include “Black Wedding,” a walk down the aisle of musical madness that sees lead singer Maria Brink sharing the mic with legendary Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford.

Iron Maiden, Ghost, Kamelot and Exodus take over San Bernardino

 

SC1_2492

IRON MAIDEN
WE ARE ALL Blood Brothers!

kamelot_rnrindustries-1It was a hot day in San Bernardino Saturday but that didn’t stop the crowd from coming out and Moshing! When Exodus hit the stage the pits started and never slowed down tell Iron Maiden was done playing their final encore! When you go to an Iron Maiden show they remind you that age is just a number from the 25,000+ fans that were in attendance that consisted of long time fans in their senior years to young kids, I saw one young man attending the show with his dad who was no more then 5 but had hair down to his waist and his denim vest full of patches eager to watch the show! Not to mention the guys that are in the band who run around like they are still in their 20’s for the entire show!

 

exodus_rnrindustries-1

 

But what makes an Iron Maiden show so special is the message that they give to their fans, when so many bands are using music to push their political beliefs (where not going to name any names!) Bruce introduced ‘Blood Brothers’ by pointing out all the flags in the audience and how we come from all over the world and all walks of life and that we are there for one thing to Enjoy Music Together! That it doesn’t matter who we love-whether it’s a man or a women, what religion we practice- even if you worship Darth Vader, that we all came there together, alive and that we were going to leave there the same way! To look out for one another (especially in the pit) that we are all there to have a great time, drink some beers and listen to our favorite music! So grab your flag and wave it proudly especially if that flag happens to be an Iron Maiden Flag!

Stone Sour rocked my face last night in San Diego, Ca. On tour with Korn and Baby Metal, always amazing to see Korn and Baby Metal are adorable!! Happy Birthday Yui Mizuno/Yui Metal!! Congrats on turning 18 years old!!

Stone Sour hit the number 1 spot Monday on the Rock Billboard charts with “Song3” off of their debut album “Hydrograd” out June 30th

Corey Taylor was having the time of his life on stage; you can see how much he loves preforming SS songs. They played “Through Glass” as well as “Say You’ll Haunt Me” two of my fav classics from this band and there was nothing stale about them! So good!

Drummer Roy Mayorga is one of the best musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching, this is no joke during song3. You can almost become addicted to that drumbeat, him and Johny Chow are just killing it!

Guitar players Christian Martucci and Josh Rand are clearly happy to be on stage with Corey and all his antics including confetti guns and wacky inflatable waving arm tube men……. Check out a show near you! Tonight, Los Angeles, Ca!!
