 Of Mice And Men Release New Video.

Of Mice And Men.Saturday 14th October 2017
OF MICE & MEN have released "Unbreakable," a short film that brings fans onstage and behind the scenes for a unique look at life on the road with a touring rock band.

Click HERE  to watch 'Unbreakable'

Directed by Johann Ramos, the documentary follows OM&M (bassist/vocalist Aaron Pauley, drummer Valentino Arteaga and guitarists Phil Manansala and Alan Ashby) across multiple continents for a series of electrifying performances captured earlier this year.
The band, who are currently on the road with In This Moment (click HERE for dates), are also putting the finishing touches on their new album, which was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (Sepultura, My Chemical Romance) in Los Angeles. They recently invited Alternative Press  into the studio for a sneak peek at the record, playing them new songs "Warzone" and "How Will You Live."

"The whole energy of the record is very centered around our live shows," Pauley told AP. "Our past records were made after extended breaks, so it's hard to remember that live connection. But we've played so many shows over the summer that it bled into the music we made. We're all very well connected on this record."

The album follows two new songs, "Unbreakable" and "Back To Me," which were released earlier this year and have racked up close to 20 millioncombined streams to date. The band maintained momentum by delivering a string of electrifying, show-stealing performances at some of the world's biggest rock festivals, including Las Rageous, Fort Rock Festival, Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, Rock on the Range, Download Festival, In.Fest and Nova Rock Festival, to name but a few.

Anticipation is running high for the yet-to-be-revealed new album, which follows Cold World.

OF MICE & MEN have hit No. 1 on Billboard's Rock and Independent Charts and No. 4 on the genre-spanning Top 200. They've racked up over 153 million Spotify streams, 20 million YouTube views and close to 5 million social media followers. They've shared stages with artists such as Metallica, Linkin Park and Queens of the Stone Age and not only held their own, but won over new fans in the process. They've played hundreds of shows for packed-house-crowds around the world, released three studio albums to critical acclaim, and recorded tracks that have blanketed rock radio airwaves. Their sound has broken through obstacles of language, distance and culture. For most bands, such achievements usually mark the summation of a long career– if they're lucky. But OF MICE & MEN have accomplished all that and more over the course of a mere five years. And while those feats make for one helluva resume, what makes this band really matter is that they've never stopped pushing themselves to go further.

Of Mice & Men will be touring the UK this December supporting Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames

 Hollywood Undead Release New Video.

Hollywood Undead.Saturday 14th October 2017
Hollywood Undead have just released “We Own The Night,” the fourth track/video from their upcoming album FIVE.

Watch the new clip here:
Hollywood Undead’s first three videos from FIVE have now amassed over 10 million combined views.

You can watch “California Dreaming” here: 

“Whatever It Takes” here:
&  “Renegade” here:
The band are currently in the middle of a North American tour in support of FIVE.  Tickets and VIP Packages for all shows are on sale now.  For all U.S. headline shows, Butcher Babies will serve as direct support.  European dates will begin on January 24th in Glasgow, UK at the O2 Academy.

The number five holds a deep significance. We have five senses. Five points adorn a star. Five represents man in theology. For the five members of Hollywood Undead—Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Funny Man, and Danny—the digit perfectly encapsulates their fifth full-length offering—FIVE [Dove & Grenade Media/BMG] out October 27th.  Fans can pre-order the new album from here:

“We’re five brothers, and this is our fifth record,” affirms Johnny 3 Tears.  “Nothing gets to the essence of the music like this number does. Numerology has a lot of power. When we said Five, it just made sense. The fact that we could all agree on one word codifies who we are. It also nods back to ‘No. 5’ from our first album, because it was our fifth song. Moreover, it hints at this secret society of fans supporting us for the past decade. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us.”

Known for atomic live performances, the quintet regularly sells out shows around the world from Massachusetts and Miami to Moscow and Manchester. They’ve toured alongside the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, and Stone Sour in addition to notching features from Billboard, Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, Revolver, and more.

 American Satan Comes To UK Cinemas On The 20th October.
American Satan.Tuesday 10th October 2017
Sumerian Films and MIRAMAX announced they have partnered to release AMERICAN SATAN.

Sumerian to distribute In UK Theatres on Friday, October 20th and VOD early in 2018. Miramax will handle all distribution rights outside of domestic theatrical.
Sumerian Films presents an Intrinsic Value, Jeff Rice Films, and Execution Style Entertainment Production from producers Andy Gould, Ash Avildsen, Jeff Cohen, Aimee Schoof, Isen Robbins, Matty Beckerman, Jeff Rice and Sean E Demott. 

AMERICAN SATAN boasts an all-star cast including Golden Globe Nominee Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle”), John Bradley (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Mark Boone, Jr. (FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Denise Richards (Wild Things, Starship Troopers), and teen superstars Disney’s BooBoo Stewart (The Twilight Series, X-Men: Days Of Future Past) and Nickelodeon’s Drake Bell. 

Check out the trailer here: 

From the producer of Rob Zombie’s Halloween & The Devil’s Rejects, AMERICAN SATAN is directed by Ash Avildsen – Founder of leading independent rock and heavy metal label Sumerian Records. International recording stars Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) and Ben Bruce (Asking Alexandria) bring rock & roll authenticity to the film, starring as leads in the fictional band The Relentless that the movie centers around, along with Jonathan Davis of platinum selling mega group Korn and Nicholas O’Toole composing the score. 
AMERICAN SATAN plays upon the dream every kid has of becoming a rock star and asks the question, what would you do to achieve that dream? The story follows a young rock band that moves to Los Angeles to chase their dreams of stardom on the Sunset Strip. Hell-bent on following in the footsteps of their musical idols, they meet an enigmatic stranger (McDowell) who seems to know them better than they know themselves. Preying on their most basic desires and emotions, he entices them with an offer that sets them on a path to fame and fortune; but when they release their debut album, “American Satan,” it sets off a firestorm of controversy, death and destruction beyond anything the music world could ever imagine. 
The first single from the AMERICAN SATAN soundtrack, “Let Him Burn” performed by The Relentless was released worldwide on August 11th and hit #1 on digital music charts in 15 countries. 
Ash Avildsen: “Some of my favorite films of all time are MIRAMAX movies, so naturally, partnering with them for distribution is incredibly exciting. Finding a home that truly understands rock & roll culture and the loyal fan base that comes with this world of music and storytelling is hard to find in Hollywood. The MIRAMAX team truly gets it. I am ecstatic to show the world AMERICAN SATAN and give both the new and classic generations of music lovers a movie they can call their own.” 

The film will open in over 50 cities in the US as well as in Canada, Mexico and Australia all on October 13th. The UK release is scheduled for October 20th and plans for expansion in to more cities and countries is planned for later in the month.

"We haven't made a record this way since Fuel For the Hate Game. As frightening as it was to not have the safety net and sounding board of a producer, it was just as liberating to make a record that is 100% Hot Water Music, scars and all.

 Knucklepuck Announce December UK Tour.

Knucklepuck.Sunday 8th October 2017

In early 2017, Knuckle Puck entered the studio to record the follow-up to Copacetic—their 2015 breakthrough that debuted in the Top 10 of five different Billboard chartsearned a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards and launched them from the Chicago suburbs to a place among the most beloved acts of the modern pop-punk genre.

But midway through the process, the band (vocalist Joe Taylor, guitarists Nick Casasanto and Kevin Maida, bassist Ryan Rumchaks and drummer John Siorek) realized they were on the wrong path. They weren't only making the wrong album for Knuckle Puck—they were making the wrong album for themselves. They knew they had no choice but to start from scratch. 

"Having such a struggle and being so disconnected in the recording process felt wrong," Casasanto explains. "It felt so wrong, and we were all afraid to talk about it. There was some denial when we realized what was unfolding."

Discouraged but undefeated, the band changed producers, eventually landing back with Copacetic producer Seth Henderson, and began rebuilding the songs they'd written from the ground up. Knuckle Puck's first attempt would have produced a fine album, but their second created the right one.

The result is Shapeshifter, due October 13 on Rise Records. Despite its title, the album isn't a reinvention for the band; rather, it's the sound of Knuckle Puck taking their best qualities and honing them to make them even sharper. The songwriting became tighter and more deliberate, the lyrics more introspective and urgent—without losing an ounce of the sweat-soaked authenticity and passion that made Copacetic so captivating. Above all, it's an album that proves the band are unflinchingly unwilling to compromise when it comes to their art. That's a sentiment reinforced throughout Shapeshifter's main lyrical theme—the importance of identity—which was only magnified during their first studio session.
"When you reach early adulthood and start to see your life take shape, it's also important to shape your identity and break yourself free from anything that might be holding you down," Casasanto says. "That was a glaring parallel between what was going on with the record and what we were writing about at the time. Although it was tumultuous, I truly think we wouldn't have written the same record without going through what we did."

Throughout their struggle, Knuckle Puck grew stronger and more confident in themselves, something the band ultimately want listeners to take from Shapeshifter.

"I hope the album instills a little bit of hope in people," Casasanto says. "You look at politics and how fast the world is now, everything the internet is bringing to the world. It's difficult to form an identity when there's so much in your face. I hope people realize they should consume the things that really speak to them. Through that, I feel like it's the most satisfying way to be who you want to be."

Shapeshifter Track Listing:

01) Nervous Passenger
02) Twist
03) Double Helix
04) Gone
05) Everyone Lies to Me
06) Stuck in Our Ways
07) Want Me Around

Maroon 5 recently debuted the music video for the band's irresistible new single, 'What Lovers Do', which features Top Dawg Entertainment artist SZA. The track has quickly climbed up the Top 40, made the Radio 1 A-list and has already clocked 82 million streams on Spotify and nearly 42 million views on YouTube since its premiere. The band exclusively revealed the new album cover yesterday on their Snapchat Story. Maroon 5 is also giving fans a chance to put themselves on the cover of 'Red Pill Blues'. Fans can share on socials for a chance to win tickets to a Maroon 5 show of your choosing + signed merchandise from the band.

The release of 'Cold' followed the group's massive hit single 'Don't Wanna Know', featuring Kendrick Lamar, which hit the Top 10 in fifteen countries and nearly 320 million YouTube/VEVO views. 'Cold' notably tallied the bands 12th US Hot 100 top 10, making them the most successful group on the charts history.

Both tracks follow on the heels of Maroon 5's GRAMMY-nominated six-times platinum selling single "Sugar" which has amassed a record setting more than 2 billion YouTube/VEVO views and counting. The track is featured on Maroon 5's acclaimed album 'V' which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top 200 and is RIAA-certified Platinum, and included additional smash singles "Maps" and "Animals."

 Hollywood Undead Star In Their Own Comic Book.

Hollywood Undead.Sunday 8th October 2017
It’s a very small list of bands that can claim they’ve had their own comic book published and now Hollywood Undead can add their name to that list.

On December 6th, Heavy Metal Comics will release Hollywood Undead: Origins. Written by Paul Allor, the comic follows Hollywood Undead's members as they discover a deep conspiracy; all across Los Angeles, people are acting unnaturally happy and compliant. People in the counterculture are suddenly fitting into society, finding square jobs and loving them. Is it clones? Robots? Alien replacements? The crew discovers that in reality, it’s a system of mental and physical alteration, funded by a powerful tech mogul-turned City Councilman. And what’s more, the “victims” aren’t victims at all; they’re undergoing the process voluntarily. But our guys won’t stand for that. They work to destroy the facility, assisted by like-minded people from across the city.

This 56-page comic ties in with the release of Hollywood Undead's fifth studio album: FIVE.  The issue will hit retail shops on December 6th, however fans can order it directly from the band’s web store ( and receive it around the street date of their new album.

Hollywood Undead just began a North American tour in support of FIVE this past weekend at the Louder Than Life festival. For all U.S. headline shows, Butcher Babies will serve as direct support.  European dates will begin on January 24th in Glasgow, UK at the O2 Academy.

The number five holds a deep significance. We have five senses. Five points adorn a star. Five represents man in theology. For the five members of Hollywood Undead—Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Funny Man, and Danny—the digit perfectly encapsulates their fifth full-length offering—FIVE [Dove & Grenade Media/BMG] out October 27th.  Fans can pre-order the new album from here:

Hollywood Undead’s first three videos from FIVE have now amassed over 10 million combined views!

You can watch “California Dreaming” here: 

“Whatever It Takes” here:
and  “Renegade” here:
“We’re five brothers, and this is our fifth record,” affirms Johnny 3 Tears.  “Nothing gets to the essence of the music like this number does. Numerology has a lot of power. When we said Five, it just made sense. The fact that we could all agree on one word codifies who we are. It also nods back to ‘No. 5’ from our first album, because it was our fifth song. Moreover, it hints at this secret society of fans supporting us for the past decade. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us.”

Known for atomic live performances, the quintet regularly sells out shows around the world from Massachusetts and Miami to Moscow and Manchester. They’ve toured alongside the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, and Stone Sour in addition to notching features from Billboard, Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, Revolver, and more.

 Five Finger Death Punch Release Video For 'Ain't My Last Dance'.

Five Finger Death Punch.Thursday 5th October 2017
A true clash of the titans, America's preeminent multiplatinum chart-topping hard rock band Five Finger Death Punch unite with renowned chart-topping European legends In Flames to co-headline what promises to be the biggest and most exciting arena rock tour of Autumn/Winter 2017. This marks the very first time that these two juggernauts have joined forces on the road together, and it's a "can't miss" moment for the genre and fans at large. The trek takes in arenas across Europe and the UK beginning in November, stopping in most major cities, and concluding on December 21st  at Wembley Arena in London.

To coincide with the tour the band are releasing a new single, the defiant "'Ain't My Last Dance"  taken from their album "Got Your Six" which charted at No 6 in the UK.  Listen to it HERE.

"We thought this was the perfect song to address the various rumors circulating out there. Ivan is doing great and the band is firing on all cylinders. Not just isn't this our "last dance" but as we are gearing up for the European tour, we are kicking it up a notch and building our biggest stage show to date" says Zoltan Bathory, founding member and guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch.

Spotify and Live Nation who present the tour,  have joined forces with Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames for a one-of-a-kind tour partnership featuring exclusive pre-sales, packages, and content from both bands.  For exclusive VIP offerings go HERE.

5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory commented: "We have just played all the European festivals and had an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of Five Finger Death Punch. We can't wait to come back this Fall and especially with In Flames which is one of my favorite bands. This will be something special to see..."

Support on select EU dates and all UK dates of the tour comes from Of Mice & Men. The Orange County, CA-based band recently returned with two brand new songs, "Back To Me" and "Unbreakable," via Rise Records.

Five Finger Death Punch comprised of vocalist Ivan Moody, guitarists Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook, drummer Jeremy Spencer and bassist Chris Kael formed in 2005 and have released six highly successful albums, five of which have been certified gold, with one reaching platinum status and another soon to follow.

Five Finger Death Punch's crushingly epic sixth full-length studio album Got Your Six, hit new heights for the band around the world with chart-topping debuts in the US (#1 on Top Album chart, #1 on Overall Digital Album chart, #1 on the Hard Music Album chart, #2 on the Billboard Top 200) and internationally (Australia & Canada #3, Germany & Sweden #5, UK #6 Holland #17, Belgium #29 and France #32). The album was the sixth consecutive release to earn the Las Vegas rockers a RIAA Gold certification. Acclaimed by The Guardian and Classic Rock, it yielded four successive Active Rock smashes "Jekyll & Hyde" (50.4 million Spotify streams), #1 hit single "Wash It All Away" (32.9 million Spotify streams), "My Nemesis" #2 (16.29 million Spotify streams) and most recently "I Apologize" #3 (17.5 million Spotify streams). Refining their inimitable fusion of intricate instrumentation and undeniable hooks, Got Your Six represents yet another high watermark for the group who claim 17 consecutive Top 10 Hits, five #1 songs and frequently outsell the majority of bands in their genre.

Knuckleheads and Jesterheads: Be prepared to unite in the name of Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames making history together.

"Hello people of contiguous Europe and adjacent holdings! It's Jesus H Chris here! How's it going, eh? I've been practicing my conversational Deutsche, Francais and Italiano lately, and I'm pretty aufgeregt/ excite/eccitato to unleash it on your fuckin' European faces! Incidentally, we will be playing some new songs from our new record during the lulls in conversation and since I never leave my house and can't stand talking to people, there will be many of these lulls, so I hope you enjoy the ripping tuneage!," says Chris Hannah.

Tickets are on sale now via the official Propagandhi website.

Propagandhi will be touring in support of their seventh album Victory Lap, which was released on September 29th via Epitaph Records. Noisey labelled the album as "a new era for the band", with Stereogum calling it "a driven, feverish, splutteringly angry rock album." Victory Lap is the band's first full-length since 2012's Failed States.

Since forming in Manitoba in 1986, Propagandhi have brought an emphatic anti-fascist message to their music. Along with addressing a number of personal losses suffered in recent years, Victory Lap finds the band facing a landscape in which fascism is—among a certain crowd—suddenly trendy.

Victory Lap also marks Propagandhi's first album with new guitarist Sulynn Hago, who joins drummer Jord Samolesky, frontman Chris Hannah, and bassist Todd Kowalski. She replaces longtime guitarist David Guillas (who appears on several tracks on Victory Lap) and was added to the lineup after Propagandhi put out a call for audition tapes that received over 400 responses.

Recorded with producers Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA and Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios in Salem, MA, the album FOREVER debuted earlier this year immediately staking its claim as one of 2017's top releases and placing Code Orange firmly at the front of the pack. The Independent stated, "One of the early 21st century's leading innovators in heavy music." "Code Orange are winning over new fans in record time. Give them a chance and you'll soon be theirs," commented Upset, adding "Code Orange are nothing short of spectacular." Having already called it, "The most important heavy release of 2017, " Metal Hammer elaborated, "Forever isn't just a great hardcore record - it's one that's ripped up the blueprint and pieced it back together in the most outrageously breathtaking way. This is a stone cold modern classic." Shortlist agreed, calling it "life-affirmingly exhilarating," with Terrorizer declaring it, "A confrontational, wilfully challenging, and obsessively interesting release." Kerrang! said, "Hardcore's most exciting band, drop the fiercest, most original noise of 2017."

NPR praised Code Orange's FOREVER, asserting that it, " among its most bruising works, with surprises throughout," while Pitchfork asserted, "the heavy rock mainstream could use a good razing, and Code Orange are well-equipped for the demolition job."  FOREVER is available at all DSP's ( with physical copies available at Code Orange's official merch store.

Annhilator.Wednesday 4th October 2017
Canadian Heavy Metal/Thrash band ANNIHILATOR will release their 16thstudio album, "For The Demented", on November 3 via Neverland Music/Silver Lining Music. The follow-up to 2015's "Suicide Society" will be available in a limited-edition digipack with lenticular cover, a jewel-case CD, a twelve-inch, 180-gram colored vinyl in gatefold and digital download.

"It was time to analyze what a lot of fans over the years have kept telling me," says ANNIHILATOR guitarist and main songwriter Jeff Waters. "It was time to sit down and figure out 'why' ANNIHILATOR's early 'thrash-meets-melodic' caught the ears of so many and to try to sweep the 'fan' part of my writing/playing/singing out the door and welcome back the mostly original Waters writing that was to be the first four ANNIHILATOR albums."
Waters didn't venture back alone while looking back through ANNIHILATOR's history. "I was well aware that trying to re-capture the past usually fails, or at least won't come close," he says. "So, I decided to bring in fresh ears, both musically and physically with Rich Hinks, my bassist for the last few years. And doing most all of the records by myself, including writing and playing most all on my own, as well as mixing, mastering, engineering, etc... well, it can become routine and can often hinder you from being objective and more creative. 

"Rich came in and co-wrote the music with me, as well as co-produced the beginning stages of the record. His background of classic thrash metal meets a newer 'math' metal style was the perfect combination for me to simply ask, 'What do you think of this?' He would most-often reply with 'not the ANNIHILATOR style I like,' so we would keep going until we both felt that core ANNIHILATOR riffing and writing style presented itself."
Jeff continues: "Bottom line, 'For The Demented' captures some feel from ANNIHILATOR's 1985-87 demos mixed with the first four ANNIHILATOR records. Back to the thrash-meets-melody but with some pure Waters guitar riffing, upgraded lead guitar shredding and vocals back to the demo days meets the 'King of The Kill' record. Lyrically, I placed a theme on the record: the human mind and all of its glory, complexity, diversity, weaknesses and insanity! Pretty much the craziness of the music is matched by the lyrics.

"I think metal fans are going to hear much of what they have been waiting for from ANNIHILATOR," adds Waters.

 Tyler Bryant And The Shakedown To Release New Album In November.

Tyler Bryant And The Shakedown.Monday 2nd October 2017
The inaugural signing to the newly-launched Snakefarm label, Nashville-based four-piece Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown have spent the past few months self-producing their new studio album and touring the world with some of rock’s most legendary names - the likes of Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Deep Purple and The Who.

Now, the eponymous album is set for a November 3rd release with new single ‘Heartland’ leading the way.

This track introduces TBSD with a one-two punch of gritty guitars and soulful vocals before slipping into a hypnotic bridge punctuated by airy clean guitars. Tyler croons, ‘There’s a slow beat in the heartland, going down in the quicksand, stack ‘em up and watch the cards fall, if it happens to one, then it happens to all.’

“That’s my way of saying everybody needs to stop taking sides,” sighs Texan-born Tyler. “It’s a mess out there. When one person falls, the rest of us do, too. I’m commenting on what’s going on in the world.”

Watch the lyric video for ‘Heartland’ here:

 Fozzy Release Video For 'Drinkin With Jesus'.

Fozzy.Monday 2nd October 2017
The hard rock world was thrown off its axis when FOZZY unleashed their first single “Judas” a few months back. The highest charting single in FOZZY history is now being followed up with the hard rocking “Drinkin With Jesus”.

The track is available now as the “Judas” album's new instant Grat Track; stream and pre-order the album here:

“Judas” is FOZZY’s seventh studio album, set for release on 13 October via Century Media Records.
Jericho states, “‘Drinkin With Jesus’ is a song we specifically wanted to put second on the record because it, quite simply, kicks ass! It's the type of song you crank up with the top down as you're speeding down the highway at midnight. While 'Judas’ is deep and heavy, 'Drinkin' punches you in the face in a different way. Lyrically, this song is about drinking alone, just hanging out with the Lord and having a few cocktails. It’s got some dark lyrics, but it’s overall a fun song with a great riff and some killer solos. So enjoy and CRANK IT UP!"

 Welcome To Lowlives.

Lowlives.Monday 2nd October 2017
Ex-The Defiled frontman Lee Villain unites with fellow Brit Luke Johnson (Amen, No Devotion, Beat Union), together with Steve Lucarelli (The Ataris) and Jaxon Moore to form new band LOWLIVES.

The band's debut single ‘Burn Forever’ is available now via all streaming sites, after last night being premiered on the BBC Radio One Rock Show.

Check out "Burn Forever" on YouTube:

“Burn Forever was one of the first songs written,” states Lee Villain“It kinda sets the tone for what we are about. Pop hooks, heavy drums, and lots of guitar noise. This band has been in the works for a long time now and I’m stoked to finally show people what we’ve been working on.”

“I wanted to write something that felt real, I wanted to work with someone where the creative relationship had chemistry,” writes Luke Johnson“I wanted to make a band with the intention of being free and agnostic of the boundaries that define popular music genres. This is the band that makes everything I've ever done before it less relevant by comparison.”

LOWLIVES play their debut show at the Troubador in Los Angeles on Oct 20th supporting Moose Blood, before heading to the studio to finish recording their full length album in November with producer Beau Burchell (The Bronx, Moose Blood, Saosin).

 Roger Waters Announced For British Summer Time 2018.

British Summer Time.Monday 2nd October 2017
Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, kicks off festival announcements for 2018 with another world-class headliner and the promise of yet another legendary night in the park.

Pink Floyd visionary Roger Waters becomes the latest in a long line of era defining artists to grace Hyde Park - one of music's most spectacular showmen at the greatest outdoor venue in the world.

Roger Waters is famous for taking his sonic and visual experimentation to breath-taking levels, turning rock n roll into theatre on the grandest scale.

At Desert Trip in 2016, in the Californian desert, Roger's performance featured the biggest quadrophonic sound system ever built. His recent sell-out shows have seen some jaw dropping moments – the rising towers of Battersea Power station evoking the cover of the classic Pink Floyd album Animals, the iconic pigs floating over the audience and a Spitfire crashing into the stage.

This new tour promises to be no exception, following months of meticulous planning and craft, it will inspire crowds with its powerful delivery to take the audience on a musical journey.

Roger Waters – Us + Them will showcase highlights from Waters' groundbreaking body of work, with songs from Pink Floyd's greatest albums (Wish You Were Here, The Wall, Animals, Dark Side of The Moon), along with tracks from his critically acclaimed new album "Is This the Life We Really Want?".   

The tour title is derived from the 1974 track "Us And Them," from the multi-million selling album The Dark Side of the Moon.

A full UK tour is also announced today, as Roger Waters – Us + Them marks Waters' first European tour since The Wall Live (2010-2013), his sold-out world tour which was seen by more than 4 million fans globally at 219 shows and remains the highest grossing tour by any solo artist in history.  

After 63 sold out shows in the US and Canada in 2017, Roger Waters 'Us + Them' tour will visit Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK in 2018. Head to for more information.

USA reviews for Roger Waters – Us + Them:

"The most striking cinematic theatrics ever employed on a rock stage. There should be Oscars for this kind of work."Billboard

"Once again, Waters has orchestrated a completely transformative experience, one that embellishes every essential quality of his catalogue. There's so much to take in that's it's admittedly kind of overwhelming"Consequence Of Sound

"Roger Waters' high-tech Us + Them spectacle soothes and galvanizes at Staples Center"Los Angeles Times
Embarking on its 6th edition, Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park is now one of Britain's biggest and best summer events, attracting some of the greatest names in music to the heart of London's beautiful Hyde Park.

In 2017, the festival experienced more classic moments, kicking off with a triumphant homecoming for Phil Collins, Green Day provoking mass hysteria, Justin Bieber making Beliebers out of tens of thousands, Kings of Leon setting the park on fire, The Killers stepping up to legendary festival status and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers showing their true class to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

>The event kicked off in 2013 with The Rolling Stones reliving their legendary 1969 gig and has not let up since, featuring now famous shows from Carole King, Stevie Wonder, The Libertines, Blur, Florence + The Machine, Kendrick Lamar, Black Sabbath, Taylor Swift, The Who and so many more.

Every year, each headliner is joined by a full supporting line-up across multiple stages, from major superstars to handpicked developing acts performing for fans from across the UK and the world.

James King, Senior Vice President, AEG Live comments: "Roger Waters consistently delivers the most exciting live experience I've ever seen. His legendary set from Desert Trip set new standards in production that to this day stand unsurpassed. To see his live show on The Great Oak Stage providing a soundtrack of Pink Floyd's greatest hits will be a spectacle not to be missed."

Daniel Mathieson, Head of Experiential Marketing and Partnerships for Barclaycard, said: "We're really excited that Roger Waters, who is such an iconic figure in musical history, is the first headline act to be announced at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2018. In what will be the festival's sixth year, Barclaycard customers can get a head start with exclusive pre-sale ticket access from 9am on Monday 2nd of October."

Alun Mainwaring, Head of Events, Filming and Commercial Development at The Royal Parks said: 'What a great way to kick off BST 2018, by welcoming the legendary Roger Waters to Hyde Park! Since it began in 2013 Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park has become a firm favourite in the events calendar, bringing a diverse range of entertainment and the world's biggest artists to this iconic park."

 In Hearts Wake Release Video For 'Overthrow'.

In Hearts Wake.Monday 2nd October 2017
In Hearts Wake have today released a new video for Overthrow, a standout anthem from their #3 album Ark. Filmed on their huge Australian headline tour earlier this year, Overthrow is an incendiary mosh-call of chaos, coming just days ahead of In Hearts Wake's first ever headline tour across Europe.

*When I first heard Ben play the opening riff to Overthrow I felt like a teenage kid about to mosh down the walls of his tiny bedroom," remembers frontman Jake Taylor. "I wanted to release everything and anything that wasn't serving me. You know, all that negative shit that just builds up and weighs you down? Overthrow gave me the platform to speak about the shadow stuff I was experiencing, and in doing so, I worked through it."

"Life is about the light and the dark, the ups and the downs, the bitter and the sweet,"
Jake continues. "It's learning how to navigate through the turbulence that counts. Sometimes when we suffer, we pretend we're okay, but deep down we are in pain. We can become afraid of this pain and try to ignore it, but if we avoid the issue, it can fester—and grow stronger. Eventually it can build up, explode, or worse, implode. The pain becomes like a tyrant dominating our lives. But with our awareness and integration, we can Overthrow its control over us."

 Machine Head Announce UK Headline Tour.

Machine Head.Monday 2nd October 2017
Bay Area metal beasts MACHINE HEAD have announced a string of UK tour dates in support of their forthcoming ninth studio album, 'Catharsis', which is set for release via Nuclear Blast in early 2018.

Check out the trailer here -

Vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn tells us, "It's been far too long since we've demolished venues in the UK!  We have had an awesome and productive break writing our new album 'Catharsis', but now it's time for MACHINE HEAD to go melt some faces!!  The reaction to our last 'Evening With' tours in the UK was nothing short of incredible, so once again these dates will be 'Evening With' shows and will see us performing 2 ½ to 3 hours every night, with no opening bands."  

He continues; "We LOVED performing as an 'Evening With' for the UK Head Cases and you guys loved it as well.  The freedom to do whatever the fuck we want, for as long as we want every night was liberating.  Jamming 'Desire To Fire' live for the first time in aeons at the Ten Ton Hammersmith show in London was epic as fuck!  This is not what everyone else is doing, and frankly, there are not a lot of bands who could even pull it off, but Machine Head CAN pull it off, and we are excited as fuck to do it again.  We are carving our own path here, playing by our own rules, and as an artist, it's the best feeling in the world!  No festivals, period!  No supporting some stupid DJ!  The Head will only be 'Headlining', so come on down and rage!!"

"This album, 'AmeriKKKant'," stated mastermind Al Jourgensen. "Will provide FEMA type relief for the devastation 'Hurricane Cheeto' has brought upon us." 

For decades, the powerhouse of psychotic sound that is MINISTRY have won over millions with releases such as 'Filth Pig', 'The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste', 'Psalm 69', 'From Beer To Eternity', and a flood of others. Since the 80s, founder Al Jourgensen has been combining elements of synth pop, punk, metal and even dub in a way that is instantly recognisable and has influenced many other bands.

 Anti-Flag Release New Video.

Anti-Flag.Monday 2nd October 2017
Since unleashing their seminal 1996 debut, Die for the Government, ANTI-FLAG has empowered and emboldened their listeners for two generations with a timeless punk spirit. With today’s chaotic political landscape stemming from the controversial 2016 presidential election, the Pittsburgh, PA quartet (Justin Sane [vocals], Chris#2 [bass, vocals], Chris Head [guitar, vocals], and Pat Thetic [drums]) felt the time was right for ANTI-FLAG to release their most definitive offering -  American Fall (out November 3rd, 2017 on Spinefarm Records).

  Co-produced by Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden, American Fall fuels politically driven and powerful self-awareness lyrics, while the 11-song collection is structurally fused together in a new sonic direction of punk-rock singalongs and big hooks. Watch ANTI-FLAG’s new “Racists” lyric video via VEVO here.

"This song is a call to arms. We must challenge racism and hatred everywhere we see it:  at school, at work, at the dinner table with our families...absolutely everywhere.  If you still stand by the Trump regime after Charlottesville, you are complicit. The line has been drawn.  On one side stand those who fight for humanity, optimism, and empathy.  On the other side are those who precipitate bigotry, cynicism, and apathy.  Now is the time to get off of the fence and choose which side of history you want to be on." - ANTI-FLAG

ANTI-FLAG will bring their memorable live set on the road this Fall with select tour and festival dates in the US and UK announced, including Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA on October 21st with Nine Inch Nails and Perfect Circle. Plus, the band will perform at this year’s KNOTFEST in Toluca, Mexico on October 28th. See all dates listed below.

 Tarja Releases New Winter Album.

Tarja.Monday 2nd October 2017
This year, Tarja is bringing the festive season early with the release of her brand new Christmas album "from Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a dark Christmas)" on November 17. This Christmas you can expect the unexpected.
The album includes 11 Christmas classics and brings them to a never before seen level, uniquely blending Tarja's classically trained voice with darker gothic influences. Utilizing the sound of a grand orchestra, the most successful Finnish solo artist puts a sinister spin on traditional songs like "O Tannenbaum", "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" and "Feliz Navidad", reminding the listener of a dark movie score. Besides covering classic carols, "from Spirits and Ghosts" also features a 12th track, the brand new original "Together". This song is aligned with the dark sound of the album and embodies the theme of ghosts and mysticism throughout, in a brilliant, Tarja-styled manner.

Says Tarja: "Producing a dark Christmas album in the middle of the summer is a very interesting process, especially if you are doing it by the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Significantly different from the snowy Christmas that I am used to in my home country Finland. Another proof that the darkness comes from deep within. On this album, I explored the other side of Christmas. The Christmas of the lonely people and the missing ones. The Christmas for those that do not find joy in the blinking lights and the jingle bells. " 

"from Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a dark Christmas)" is going to be released on November 17th, 2017 on earMUSIC as 1CD digipak, 1LP Gatefold (180g, black) and Digital.
The "Official Store for a dark Christmas" offers a wide variety of exclusive, limited fan items and bundles.

The album is produced by Tarja, the American Emmy Award winning film score composer Jim Dooley and British producer Tim Palmer, known for his work with Pearl Jam, U2, David Bowie, Lang Lang and The Cure among others, who also mixed the album at 62' Studio in Texas. The album was mastered at Sterling Sound in NY City.

This Christmas, gather your loved ones, dim the lights, put on some candles and play Tarja's "from Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a dark Christmas)" loud!"from Spirits and Ghosts"

We have been given a new lease on life. As individuals, this is the happiest we have been in a very long time.” 

The song, and accompanying video, arrives following the U.S. debut via SiriusXM Octane.

 American Satan Film Releases Trailer.

American Satan.Monday 2nd October 2017
AMERICAN SATAN, the Rated-R supernatural rock & roll thriller from SUMERIAN RECORDS mastermind ASH AVILDSEN, continues to make waves in the music and film industries with their latest official trailer.

Check out the Official Theatrical Trailer here:

Starring ANDY BLACK, JOHN BRADLEY (Game Of Thrones) and Golden Globe Nominee MALCOLM McDOWELL, best known for his iconic role in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange and currently on Amazon’s Mozart In the Jungle, AMERICAN SATAN opens on the big screen Friday the 13th of October in 50 US cities, many of them already on sale at AMC theaters. Internationally, cinemas in Canada, UK, Australia and Mexico are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

AMERICAN SATAN introduces BEN BRUCE (Asking Alexandria) and OLIVIA CULPO (Miss Universe) to the screen, as they star alongside an ensemble cast that includes Disney’s BOOBOO STEWART (The Twilight Saga, X-Men: Days Of Future Past), Mark Boone Jr (Sons of Anarchy, Batman Begins), Denise Richards (Starship Troopers, Wild Things), WWE’s Bill Goldberg, Bill Duke (Predator) and Drake Bell.

The music-centric film features an original score by composer JONATHAN DAVIS of KoRn and songs from Deftones, The Pretty Reckless, Circa Survive, Skid Row, Crosses, In This Moment, Meg Myers, Dorothy, After The Burial, Barns Courtney, Palaye Royale, Animals As Leaders, Slaughter and more.

It was the summer of 2015 when director ASH AVILDSEN was working on the AMERICAN SATAN script when he met his father for the first time, Oscar-winning director JOHN G. AVILDSEN (ROCKY, THE KARATE KID, LEAN ON ME) As fate would have it, they collaborated on the movie together and formed a very close bond. John gave crucial notes on the script and some great tips to Ash during production. John also has a cameo in the film, playing a CNN news anchor. This would go on to be the last finished film John worked on before he passed away in June of 2017.

Already a winner of several awards on the festival circuit including Best Picture and Best Director at New York’s Peekskill Film Festival as well as Best Feature at California’s Oceanside Independent Film Festival, AMERICAN SATAN will play this Friday, September 22nd at the 33rd Annual Boston Film Festival.

About the release of AMERICAN SATAN, Ash Avildsen said:

“This story comes from a very real place. I dropped out of college to pursue a career in music. I’ve toured as both an unsigned and a signed artist. I’ve been a promoter, a booking agent, a manager, a producer and am an active record label owner. With the exception of a physical manifestation of the devil and an angel, everything in the film is based on real events that either myself or the producers of the movie have experienced in our careers working with bands. I’m excited for our music community to go on this ride and understand why we chose the Neil Young quote ‘Rock & Roll is where God and the Devil shake hands.’ to be put on top of the poster at theaters.”
Some of the AMERICAN SATAN producers Ash references are:

Andy Gould, best known for producing Rob Zombie’s Halloween & The Devil’s Rejects and co-managing Pantera & Linkin Park.
John Reese, former tour manager and band manager for Guns N’ Roses as well as concert festival producer for Knotfest meets Ozzfest and Rockstar Mayhem Festival.
Jeff Cohen, entertainment attorney best known in the public eye for handling Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe’s manslaughter trial in the Czech Republic.

A young rock band, half from England and half from the US, drop out of college and move to the Sunset Strip to chase their dreams. Living in a van, their passion and talent exceed their means to survive. An enigmatic stranger sees their true potential and emotionally manipulates them during a time of weakness. Caught in the middle of a Faustian deal, their music and controversial altercations end up influencing society beyond anything this century has seen, but can they take back control of their destiny before it's too late?
NOTE: The first single from The Relentless, the fictional band in the film, “Let Him Burn” was released worldwide on August 11 and hit #1 on iTunes rock & metal music charts in 16 countries. The music video has already surpassed 1 Million views on YouTube.

 Andrew WK Announces New Album And UK Tour.

Andrew WK.Monday 2nd October 2017
Party God Andrew W.K. is thrilled to announce his first new full length album in over a decade. The album showcases Andrew's signature style of blasting triumphant rock music, with an even greater epic depth and emotional drive. "I'm going for the sound of pure, unadulterated  feeling, every emotion, every thought, every experience, every sensation, all extruded into one life-force syrup, and psychically amplified by the celebratory spirit of glorious music," Andrew attempts to explain. The new release is out March 2, 2018 via Sony Music worldwide. Album title and cover art to follow.

This week, Andrew W.K. began his first full-band concert outing in five years with "The Party Never Dies Tour"; UK shows in 2018 are listed below.

A one-man music machine possessed by a single-minded, monomaniacal focus  on euphoric joy, Andrew lives to spread a singular message: That to party is to exist, and to exist is to party. Andrew continues to passionately deliver his extremely high-energy brand of uplifting entertainment, with a unrelenting commitment to continuing the mission he first embarked upon in 2001, with the release of his debut single and signature tune "Party Hard", and has never swerved from since. While also adopting a dizzying array of additional roles that took him into virgin territory for a rock 'n' roll musician, Andrew has always remained true to his cause. These include being a columnist for the Village Voice and Vice, the host of a Cartoon Network game show, and a lecturer at Yale, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and the UK's Oxford University. It's safe to say, Andrew's hard partying spirit is showing no signs of softening.

 Evanescence Announce New Studio Album And UK Tour.

Evanscence.Friday 15th September 2017
EVANESCENCE are returning with SYNTHESIS, their fourth and most ambitious album to date, set for a November 10th release. The album features a reworking of some of EVANESCENCE's best-loved songs recorded with a full orchestra and electronica combined with the band and Amy Lee's virtuoso piano and voice.

EVANESCENCE--lead singer-songwriter and pianist Amy Lee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist Jen Majura worked with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell on SYNTHESISwhich will also feature two new EVANESCENCE songs, the first of which, entitled "Imperfection" will be released today.  The album includes guest performance by famed violinist Lindsey Stirling on "Hi-Lo" the other new song on the album.

AMY LEE describes the meaning behind "Imperfection," "For me, this is the most important song on the album. I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn't sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable. I had no choice. It's for all the people we've lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression. I'm singing from the perspective of the person left behind, the person in the waiting room. It's a plea to fight for your life, to stay. Don't give into the fear- I have to tell myself that every day. Nobody is perfect.  We are all imperfect, and it's precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there's so much beauty in those differences. Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for."

Listen to "Imperfection" HERE

"This album is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars," explains AMY LEE. "I've always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation. This will be our first time touring with orchestra and I'm so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we've built over the years. I'm also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack."

Both Standard CD & Digital versions of the album are available now for pre-order, as well as a Deluxe version which include the CD plus a DVD featuring a documentary on making the album as well as instrumental and 5.1 surround mixes of the songs.

In what promises to be the biggest year for EVANESCENCE yet, the group also confirmed that their"Synthesis Live"tour will continue in UK & Europe, starting with two nights at the Royal Festival Hall in March 2018.

 Rem To Mark 25th Anniversary Of 'Automatic For The People'.

REM.Friday 15th September 2017
R.E.M. are reissuing their landmark album Automatic For The People to commemorate the title's 25th Anniversary. Due November 10 via Craft Recordings, the remastered album will be available in a variety of formats, the most extensive of which is the Deluxe Anniversary Edition, which will feature the album in it's entirety mixed in Dolby Atmos.

Watch a trailer for the album HERE

The album (plus bonus track "Photograph," featuring Natalie Merchant) was remixed in Dolby Atmos by Automatic's original producer, Scott Litt, and engineer, Clif Norrell. This technology delivers a leap forward from surround sound with expansive, flowing audio that immerses the listener far beyond what stereo can offer. It transports the listener inside the recording studio with multi-dimensional audio – evoking a time when listening to music was an active, transformative experience, and reigniting the emotion you felt when you first heard the album in 1992.  R.E.M.'s Automatic For The People is the first album to be commercially released in this expressive, breathtaking format.

In addition, the 4-disc Deluxe Edition will offer a wealth of previously unreleased material. The band selected 20 never-before-heard demos from the LP's sessions, including the fully-realized, unreleased track "Mike's Pop Song" and the oft-mused about song, "Devil Rides Backwards." "Mike's Pop Song" debuts today and is available as an instant grat track with preorder of the reissue. Share the track HERE  and preorder HERE 
Mike Mills hadn't heard this demo for 25 years and admits it was "a very pleasant surprise". With a lovely, upbeat melody, not unlike the 'Out of Time' classic 'Near Wild Heaven', 'Mike's Pop Song' is a genuine treat. 'Mike's Pop Song' was recorded in February 1992 at John Keane Studios in Athens, Georgia.
Also included in both the 2-disc 25th Anniversary and Deluxe Edition of the album—which was remastered from the original analog tapes by Stephen Marcussen—is a full live set, Live At The 40 Watt Club 11/19/92. Performed in R.E.M.'s hometown of Athens, GA, it was the band's only live show that year.

Housed in a 12" x 12" lift-top box, the Deluxe Anniversary Edition features a 60-page book, offering never-before-seen photos by Anton Corbjin and Melodie McDaniel, plus expanded, new liner notes by Scottish music journalist Tom Doyle who conducted new interviews with all four band members. Also included is a companion Blu-ray, offering the Dolby Atmos mix, plus a high-resolution master of Automatic For The People, seven music videos and the original 1992 EPK video. Automatic For The People will also be reissued on 180-gram vinyl (with digital download card), and will be available across all digital and streaming outlets.

Widely regarded as one of the best rock albums of all time, Automatic For The People, R.E.M.'s eighth studio outing, was recorded in session locations ranging from New Orleans to Seattle, and Athens, GA to Miami. Rolling Stone has ranked Automatic For The People on their list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." Notable contributions to the record come from Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones who provided string arrangements on select tracks. After its release in 1992 the record reached #1 on UK charts and #2 in the US, selling over eighteen million copies worldwide. It also received 1994 Grammy nominations for Album of the Year and Best Alternative Music Album with major singles "Man on the Moon" and "Everybody Hurts" garnering Grammy nods as well.

Michael Stipe has since reflected that the album concerns topics of "mortality and dying," but he further notes, "Mortality is a theme that writers have chosen to work with throughout time. It speaks of the fragility and beauty of life and living life to the fullest in the present moment. It happens all too quickly and we all know that." Mike Mills asserts, "I think it's our most cohesive record...It's the strongest from first to last."

Following the success of their multiplatinum Out of Time in 1991, the band's reputation was skyrocketing with critics and fans alike. However, R.E.M.'s decision not to tour behind it, and with no plan to tour its successor, the band chose to push further into unexplored sonic territory. The recording was thus characterized by experimentation and playfulness in the studio resulting in a largely acoustic sound full of eerie and ambiguous commentary on the nature of mainstream fame they'd recently found. To this day, songs like "Everybody Hurts," "Drive," "Nightswimming" and "Man on the Moon," as well as lesser known but sublime songs like "Try Not To Breathe" and "Monty Got a Raw Deal," still resonate throughout the collective music and pop culture.

Formed in 1980, the legendary group went on to win multiple Grammys and produce 15 studio albums, plus many others including greatest hits and live documents. Noted for both their profound contributions to the alternative rock genre and their status as one of the world's best-selling music artists of all time, the band's three-decade long career remains a legacy of music that defined an era and a model for musicians paving their own career path. R.E.M. (comprised of Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Michael Stipe) was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2007 before disbanding amicably in 2011.

 Marilyn Manson Back With New Single 'We Know Where You Fucking Live'.

Marilyn Manson.Wednesday 14th September 2017
Marilyn Manson confirms October 6 release for Heaven Upside Down. New single “WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE” trolls the dark frenetic territory that made Manson a God-like figure to so many. The ten tracks on Heaven Upside Down were recorded in Los Angeles and create a cinematic sonic palate that harkens back to the ferocity of seminal Manson albums Portrait of an American Family and Holy Wood. On the new album, he reunites with producer and film composer Tyler Bates following an epic collaboration on Manson’s critically acclaimed 2015 release The Pale Emperor.

Themes of violence, sex, politics and romance slice through Heaven Upside Down. Manson asks his fans to brutally pledge their devotion on “KILL4ME” and delves into new genres with a trap beat on the track “SAY10” as he proclaims “I’m a legend, I’m not a fable.”

Manson's sensationalist music and art that rejects conservative values created an icon who has infiltrated fashion, television, film and music, and whose fingerprints coat modern culture. 20 years into his career, Manson is still a lightning rod of controversy and the pageantry and debauchery of his life are perfectly intact.

 Nothing More To Release New Album On Friday.

Nothing More.Thursday 14th September 2017
Visionary Texan quartet NOTHING MORE release their eagerly awaited album The Stories We Tell Ourselves this Friday, September 15th via Better Noise Records.

The follow up to the band's self-titled 2014 breakout LP, The Stories We Tell Ourselves sees frontman Jonny Hawkins once again bearing the soul of Nothing More as his bandmates Mark Vollelunga (guitar), Daniel Oliver (bass) and Ben Anderson (drums) craft a sonic palette comprised of elements ranging from progressive rock to pop.
They are also delighted to be returning to the UK for a short headline run in December. These will be their first dates since they gained an army of fans touring with The Pretty Reckless and Halestorm along with an appearance at the Reading & Leeds Festivals. Famous for their onstage props, this tour sees the Scorpion Tail emerging.  A 400 lb 14-foot-tall instrument made from scrap metal, automotive and motorcycle parts. The Scorpion Tail was hand-crafted by Nothing More bassist Daniel Oliver, a self-taught welder and metal artist

Lyrically the album was further influenced by everything from the writings of Carl Jung and C.S. Lewis to the potent psychedelic DMT, all of which helped open singer Jonny Hawkins' mind to new ways of understanding himself and the world around him.

 Veil Of Maya announce New Album.

Veil Of maya.Wednesday 13th September 2017
Illinois' finest VEIL OF MAYA are returning with their long awaited album "False Idol". 

Due to be released via Sumerian Records, the new album is a marked sonic evolution - it's more hypnotic, heavier, and hits harder than ever before. "False Idol" also encodes a curious narrative underneath a maelstrom of polyrhythmic guitars, sweeping vocals, and shuddering beats.

"The whole album is told from a first-person perspective", explains vocalist Lukas Magyar. "You're following this character, who's not the nicest person, and he rises to power. You'll have to listen to find out what happens - it's a very dark storyline."

"It felt more like we were making a movie or a TV series," guitarist Marc Okubo adds. "Lukas actually had a storyboard idea that we talked about before even starting. It's almost like we were providing the soundtrack in Veil of Maya's template."

The seeds for this widescreen ambition can be traced back to 2015's "Matriarch", which bowed at #2 on the Billboard US Hard Rock Chart and spawned the band's biggest hit to date in the form of 'Mikasa' - the video racked up over 5.2 million YouTube views and 5.1 million Spotify streams. The album also earned critical acclaim from Billboard, Alternative Press, New Noise Magazine and more.

The release of "Matriarch" saw VEIL OF MAYA hit the road with the likes of Animals As Leaders, Upon A Burning Body, Volumes, Chelsea Grin, Oceans Ate Alaska and other heavy hitters, as well as performing on the Vans Warped Tour. Then, in late 2016, the band headed to Los Angeles to record what would become "False Idol". Marc Okubo worked with producer Max Schad in one studio, while Lukas Magyar teamed up with vocal producer Brandon Paddock in another. 

"Working in two studios at the same time was a new approach for us," says Marc. "In the past, we completed all of the instrumentals for Lukas to then marinate on. Everything was done by the time he joined the band, but this is the first time we got to write with his voice in mind. And another change was that he was writing on the spot - it brought a different energy and ended up being really cool. Working with Max [Schad] made a big difference too."

The end product is a darker and heavier vibe, with first single 'Overthrow' effortlessly moving from a crushing tidal wave of riffs into a soaring, striking clean refrain. It taps into the expansive energy of signature fan favourites, whilst elevating the group to a new level. In "False Idol", VEIL OF MAYA have an album that crushes pulverising power with an unforgettable narrative in the landscape of their most definitive work to date.

"We wanted to create something fresh," Lukas explains. "We didn't recycle the same old thing. It's a new beginning."

"I hope the record is one that people will want to go back to and study again," agrees Marc. "It's worth more than one listen."

To prepare for "False Idol", check out the brand new video for single "Overthrow":

 Knuckle Puck Release Video For 'Double Helix'.

Knuckle Puck.Wednesday 13th September 2017
Chicago pop punkers Knuckle Puck have released a new video for 'Double Helix' taken from their highly anticipated new album Shapeshifter. Shapeshifter will be released on the 13th October via Rise Records and is available for pre-order now.

You can watch new video Double Helix here
Knuckle Puck will also be touring the UK this December. You can see the band at the following dates with support from Tiny Moving Parts, Have Mercy & Movements:
7th December Rescue Rooms Nottingham
8th December Key Club Leeds
9th December SWG3 Glasgow
10th December Riverside Newcastle
12th December Club Academy Manchester
13th December Fleece Bristol
14th December 1865 Southampton
15th December Electric Ballroom London

On Sale Now

In early 2017, Knuckle Puck entered the studio to record the follow-up to Copacetic—their 2015 breakthrough that debuted in the Top 10 of five different Billboard chartsearned a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards and launched them from the Chicago suburbs to a place among the most beloved acts of the modern pop-punk genre.

But midway through the process, the band (vocalist Joe Taylor, guitarists Nick Casasanto and Kevin Maida, bassist Ryan Rumchaks and drummer John Siorek) realized they were on the wrong path. They weren't only making the wrong album for Knuckle Puck—they were making the wrong album for themselves. They knew they had no choice but to start from scratch. 
"Having such a struggle and being so disconnected in the recording process felt wrong," Casasanto explains. "It felt so wrong, and we were all afraid to talk about it. There was some denial when we realized what was unfolding."

Discouraged but undefeated, the band changed producers, eventually landing back with Copacetic producer Seth Henderson, and began rebuilding the songs they'd written from the ground up. Knuckle Puck's first attempt would have produced a fine album, but their second created the right one.

The result is Shapeshifter, due October 13 on Rise Records. Despite its title, the album isn't a reinvention for the band; rather, it's the sound of Knuckle Puck taking their best qualities and honing them to make them even sharper. The songwriting became tighter and more deliberate, the lyrics more introspective and urgent—without losing an ounce of the sweat-soaked authenticity and passion that made Copacetic so captivating. Above all, it's an album that proves the band are unflinchingly unwilling to compromise when it comes to their art. That's a sentiment reinforced throughout Shapeshifter's main lyrical theme—the importance of identity—which was only magnified during their first studio session.

"When you reach early adulthood and start to see your life take shape, it's also important to shape your identity and break yourself free from anything that might be holding you down," Casasanto says. "That was a glaring parallel between what was going on with the record and what we were writing about at the time. Although it was tumultuous, I truly think we wouldn't have written the same record without going through what we did."

Throughout their struggle, Knuckle Puck grew stronger and more confident in themselves, something the band ultimately want listeners to take from Shapeshifter.
"I hope the album instills a little bit of hope in people," Casasanto says. "You look at politics and how fast the world is now, everything the internet is bringing to the world. It's difficult to form an identity when there's so much in your face. I hope people realize they should consume the things that really speak to them. Through that, I feel like it's the most satisfying way to be who you want to be."

Shapeshifter Track Listing:
01) Nervous Passenger
02) Twist
03) Double Helix
04) Gone
05) Everyone Lies to Me
06) Stuck in Our Ways
07) Want Me Around
08) Conduit
09) Wait
10) Plastic Brains

Shapeshifter is currently available for pre-order through Rise Records.

 John Carpenter Release Video For 'Christine'.

John Carpenter.Wednesday 13th September 2017
Last month John Carpenter announced 'Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998'; a collection of his classic movie themes, set for release on October 20th via Sacred Bones. Today, he has shared a second glimpse from the release; along with a new video he has created to accompany "Christine".

Carpenter describes the track as: "Electronica for a killer car". He continues: "Most of the sound track for Christine was 1950s rock 'n roll (with a main title appearance of George Thorogood and the Destroyers' "Bad to the Bone"). I filled in where necessary."

The new John Carpenter-directed clip to accompany the track succinctly re-imagines his classic 1983 film, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.

Watch the video for "Christine" here:
Embed code: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

John Carpenter is a legend. As the director and composer behind dozens of classic movies, Carpenter has established a reputation as one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of modern cinema, as well as one of its most influential musicians. The minimal, synthesizer-driven themes to films like Halloween, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 are as indelible as their images, and their timelessness was evident as Carpenter performed them live in a string of internationally sold-out concert dates in 2016. 

'Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998' collects 13 classic themes from Carpenter's illustrious career together on one volume for the first time. Each theme has been newly recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit 'Lost Themes' studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.

'Anthology...' is a near-comprehensive survey of John Carpenter's greatest themes, from his very first movie, the no-budget sci-fi film Dark Star, to 1998's supernatural Western,Vampires. Those sit alongside the driving, Led Zeppelin-influenced Assault on Precinct 13 theme, Halloween's iconic 5/4 piano riff, and the eerie synth work of The Fog. Carpenter and his band also cover Ennio Morricone's bleak, minimalist theme for The Thing. ("I asked Morricone to please compose something with a very few notes," Carpenter says. "And brilliantly, he did.")

We also get vital new recordings of the themes to '80s classics and fan favorites Big Trouble in Little China, Escape From New York, Christineand They Live, along with the romantic Starman, which earned Jeff Bridges his first Oscar nomination as a lead actor. The collection is rounded out by the menacing, heavy themes to Prince of Darkness and In the Mouth of Madness, the latter a Metallica-inspired riff originally played for the film by Kinks guitarist Dave Davies, and now played by his son Daniel.

In the weeks following 'Anthology's October 20 release, Carpenter will return to the road, playing both classic movie themes and material from his two 'Lost Themes' albums. The performances will once again affirm the power of the Horror Master's brilliant work as a composer and musician, and undoubtedly send audiences rushing home to their DVD libraries to dive yet again into the most rewarding filmography in genre cinema.

In addition to CD, black LP and digital version, 'Anthology...' will be available on the following limited edition colour vinyl formats:
- DELUXE LP w/ 7" - "CHRISTINE RED" - 3000 units (exclusively available in stores outside of the US)
- DELUXE LP w/ 7" -  "THE FOG OVER ANTONIO BAY" - 2000 units (exclusively available in US stores)

 The Stranglers Announce March 2018 UK Tour.

The Stranglers.Tuesday 12th September 2017
The Stranglers will be hitting the road again in March 2018, this time with The Definitive Tour.

With the vast catalogue of material that the Stranglers have in their recorded arsenal, it is never easy to decide exactly which songs to bring together on record or perform live on tour but, in March 2018, the band will present their "Definitive" collection. The Definitive Tour is set to coincide with the planned re-release of their first seven albums (six studio and one live) originally issued on the UA and EMI/Liberty labels.

As always, audiences can expect to be swept up high on the wave of the Stranglers' powerful sound during what is always an exhilarating live experience; pounding rhythms, soaring melodies, quirky humour and thrillingly daring musicianship will come together again this March.

One of the UK's most exciting, credible and influential British groups, the Stranglers are riding high on the crest of a resurgent wave of popularity. They continue to thrive on the live circuit and their existing large and loyal fan base has swelled in recent years as new converts join the ranks. With record-breaking, sell-out shows and festival appearances throughout the UK and the rest of the world, public demand to hear and see the group has never been so high; true testament to their considerable musical talent and the enduring quality of their songs.

For the 2018 UK tour, the Stranglers are also pleased to announce that Therapy? will be their special guests. One of the most uncompromising, creative and individualistic bands of their generation, Therapy? made a spectacular breakthrough in 1994 with their multi hit-spawning album, Troublegum, which clocked up a cool million sales worldwide.The group are expecting to release their 15th album in early 2018 and have spent much of the past year performing a series of critically-acclaimed acoustic dates.

 Seaway Release New Video.

Seaway.Tuesday 12th September 2017
SEAWAY have released new video "Lula On The Beach," which features a rotating cast of four-legged friends.

In light of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the band has pledged to donate $1 per video share (up to $1000) to the ASPCA to support relief efforts in Texas and Florida. "Lula On The Beach" is the latest from Seaway's forthcoming album, Vacation, due out September 15th, 2017 via Pure Noise Records.

You can watch new video for 'Luna On The Beach' here
I would say that collectively, Lula is probably our favourite song off the record," shares Andrew Eichinger. "It's definitely the most different sounding song we've ever done and the furthest we've stepped out of the space we've been operating in over the last couple of years. At the same time, it somehow encapsulates the entire Seaway vibe and what we're all about as a band."
He continues: "The video was really fun for us because on the surface, 'Lula' just sounds like it's another song about a girl, but as the video reveals, it's really a song about bringing your dog to the beach ... Miguel, Dave, and everyone else at YEAH! Films were the obvious choice for us on this one. We've been talking about making a beach video with them since high school, and it's gratifying to see the result of working with friends who are all on the same page creatively."

As the band's follow up to 2015's Colour Blind, Vacation marks a progression in sound while still giving listeners the high energy and well-crafted hooks they have come to expect.  Fans can pre-order the album and stream first single "Apartment" now at

Formed in 2011, SEAWAY is Ryan Locke (vocals), Patrick Carleton (guitar, vocals), Ken Taylor (drums), Adam Shoji (bass), and Andrew Eichinger (guitar). The band has become known for their highly infectious brand of pop punk – one that strikes the perfect balance between the two styles and recalls a time when the genre centred on having fun. 
SEAWAY released their debut album Hoser in 2013. The following year, the five Canucks signed to Pure Noise Records to release their follow up EP, All in My Head. Their sophomore full length Colour Blind was released in 2015 via Pure Noise Records following an entire summer on the Vans Warped Tour
The band will release their new album Vacation on September 15, 2017.

The trio had come off a tour and began sketching out new songs in their private lockout space appropriately nicknamed 'The Bunker' in North Hollywood.  "It's a crazy making machine, it can chew you up good, I mean we literally toured 'till the wheels came off and Leah's brain literally started leaking out of her head" says Been. "I know I've battled on and off with mental depression, and Pete's head never came with any proper instructions."

Nick Launay, famed for his work with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire and most significantly here Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, came in to produce the album, and became a fundamental part of the BRMC machine, providing the band with a sounding board. "I find myself writing about death a lot," says Hayes. "I find myself having a discussion with death, which sounds dark. For me, it's dark humor."
Adds Been "We are truly an island – come hell or high water, so it's usually best to dress accordingly. Though I'm not sure what the proper attire is when drowning in fire. But leather usually goes with everything."

 The band also released their first track "Little Thing Gone Wild" today, which will be an instant grat track with the album pre-order. It's a dirty, sexy, rollicking ride of big licks and heavy bass – and the first taste of the album. It's also the inspiration for the LP's title, drawing on a lyrical passage. "Lord you hear me loud into my soul speaker, why won't you let me out, you've got the wrong creature'.  Preorder link for the album is HERE

 The haxans Release New Video.l

The Haxans.Tuesday 12th September 2017
THE HAXANS (Ash Costello & Matt Montgomery) have premiered their new music video for the song "Black Cat Bone". The track is featured on the group's debut album, Party Monsters, which comes out on October 13th (Friday the 13th!).

The brand-new "Black Cat Bone" music video can be seen here:

Speaking about the new song and corresponding music video, Ash Costello (vocals) states: "I love every Haxans song but 'Black Cat Bone' holds a special place in my heart. It's the perfect marriage between classic rock and dance rhythms. The icing on the cake are Matt's deep vocals! It's a Halloween party must that will keep you shakin' a feather year round. It's also one of the very first songs we did together for The Haxans, it embodies a little bit of each slice that makes up the entire Haxans pie!"

Adding his thoughts on the band's newest song, Matt Montgomery comments: "'Black Cat Bone' was one of our earliest songs. It kinda set the tone for our record, and really helped get the party started. But now every party has a potential party crasher, and this one in our video just wouldn't quit! I think everyone probably has one of those in their life somewhere. At one point they were invited, but somewhere along the way they crossed some lines.”

“Party Monsters” can be pre-ordered here:

 Butcher Babies Announce New Album.

Butcher Babies.Tuesday 12th September 2017
Hollywood-based metal outfit BUTCHER BABIES are set to release their third studio album "Lilith" on 10th November via Century Media Records.

The band is thrilled to announce that pre-orders for the new album are available now in both physical and digital formats. Speaking about the unique pre-order packages for "Lilith", vocalist Carla Harvey says:

"In anticipation of "Lilith", we wanted to offer unique pre-sale bundles that are special to us. Not only do we have the album, limited edition vinyl, and t-shirts up for grabs, but we are also offering limited edition items curated by myself and Heidi. One such item is a gorgeous lyric book for "Lilith", featuring never before seen illustrations by me and graphics by Heidi.  Another item is our signature "Lilith" pendant, a darling necklace handcrafted by us for our Butcher Army."

Fans that pre-order "Lilith" will also receive the album's title track as an instant download. Speaking about the first offering from their new album, vocalist Heidi Shepherd states: 

"After a year of writing and recording, we are thrilled with the growth and maturity of this album. Leading with our title track 'Lilith', the artistic development within the band shines. We worked with producer Steve Evetts to bring you the rawest form of Butcher Babies. No auto-tune, 100% real drums, real guitars, real bass, and an all out Butcher Babies assault on your senses. As we know in this industry, these standards are quickly replaced by machines and can eliminate what makes a band an actual band. We are so proud of the hard work and dedication that each member of our team put in to create this masterpiece."

You can find all the details on the pre-order site:

 Marillion Announce 2018 UK Tour.

Marillion.Tuesday 12th September 2017
Prog rock giants MARILLION announce 7 new UK dates in April 2018 on the back of their October show at The Royal Albert Hall, which sold out within four minutes of going on sale, and The London Palladium in November, which also sold out in record time. 

MARILLION’S music is more than prog, it’s musically-experimental and yet-emotional. Within the genre it has a uniquely soul-baring aspect which sets the band apart and has elicited an almost religiously zealous following.  After nearly 40 years, the band has evolved into a vibrant and international musical force, flourishing seemingly outside of fashion and mainstream media exposure. Since their formation, they have had 19 Top 30 singles, four of which made the Top 10.  

Their most recent album, F E A R (Fuck Everyone and Run)peaked at No. 4 in the UK album charts and No. 1 in the rock chart last year and was given a 5-star review by The Guardian.

>Steve Hogarth says: "I have been part of this band now for 27 years and it barely feels like 10. I think we’re as inspired as we ever were, and we’re still enjoying creating together. Luckily our music has remained free to evolve and change without the constraints of a corporate music business which otherwise might have killed us. 

By reinventing the business-model we have maintained a one-to-one relationship with our fans, and that feeling is never more apparent than at the live shows. It’s always a pleasure to share a room with “the family" and exchange the passion on stage with the passion off stage. 
We’re playing a few places we haven’t visited for a while. Long overdue. 'Really looking forward to this little outing."

MARILLION are not just musically innovative... they are widely acknowledged to be the first band to use the-now-commonplace crowdfunding scheme. Pledge Music and Oxford University have acknowledged that the band invented the business model. In the late 90s, fans sponsored an entire US tour.  Their first crowd-funded album was Anoraknophobia, released in 2001.

Winners of a staggering EIGHT Categories in 2016 Prog Mag Awards (see Notes to Editors), MARILLION elicit remarkable devotion from their international fan base.  To those who already love MARILLION, the band is something special. To the uninitiated, it’s a love affair waiting to happen.

2018 Tour Dates as follows:-

Date City Venue
Wed 11th April Gateshead The Sage
Fri 13th April Cambridge Corn Exchange

 Avenged Sevenfold Expand 'The Stage' Further.

Avenged Senvenfold.Tuesdsay 12th September 2017
AVENGED SEVENFOLD continue their expansion of new album THE STAGE with today's release: a cover of the 1966 Rolling Stones' hit, "As Tears Go By" – click HERE to listen.

"We really got into some of the deeper Rolling Stones tracks during the writing process for 'Hail To The King,'" says Avenged Sevenfold vocalist M. Shadows. "This song always stood out because of the melody and fragile state of Mick Jagger's vocal and the interesting string section in the bridge. We took a more uptempo rock & roll approach and added the sitar as a little nod to the experimentation of the 60s."
Over the course of the past several weeks, Avenged Sevenfold have been steadily adding new tracks to THE STAGE and transforming the album into an evolving body of work. They began with Mexican folk song "Malagueña Salerosa" and followed with a reimagining of Mr. Bungle's "Retrovertigo," original track "Dose," a cover of Del Shannon's 1961 No. 1 hit, "Runaway" (featuring a guest appearance by Vandals' guitarist Warren Fitzgerald and lead vocals by Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Zacky Vengeance) and the band's version of The Beach Boys' 1966 hit, " God Only Knows."

THE STAGE is the band's 7th studio album and first for Capitol Records. The album hit No. 1 on Billboard's Rock, Hard Rock and Alternative Albums charts, No. 4 on the Top 200 and debuted Top 5 on iTunes in over 35 countries.  Its title track hit Top 5 at rock radio and its companion video has amassed over 19.5 million YouTube views to date.
Avenged Sevenfold (vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman) just wrapped a stadium summer run with Metallica as well as on their own series of special headline shows. Next up is their headlining slot at the Houston Open Air festival on September 15th.

 The Used Announce Brand New Album.

The Used.Tuesday 12th September 2017
The Used have announced they will be releasing their seventh studio album titled, "The Canyon" due out October 27th on Hopeless Records. Produced by Ross Robinson (The Cure, At The Drive In), the 17-track album is the most raw, unadulterated and personal piece of art the band has ever released.  Check out the brand new track "Over and Over Again" HERE

"The Canyon" will take fans on a lyrical journey through the intimate psyche of Bert McCracken.  The intricate musical composition displayed presented itself to the band in a way it never has before.

"I've learned as an artist that a great idea is such a gift.  If I don't stop whatever it is I'm doing, even if while driving, if I don't pull over at that moment, then maybe I didn't deserve the idea to begin with. I learned to respect and worship the ideas in that way, that they are and will always be something sacred. Stopping in that moment was a brand new approach for us during this process" says McCracken.

Every musical note and vocal heard on the record was recorded entirely on tape without a click track at the legendary Valentine Studio with some songs featuring string arrangements and a choir. The process was unique and unlike anything the band has done before. They would hit record and play it as if they were on stage, without a backing track. Songs weren't played and recorded repeatedly until the magic was gone. What you are hearing is what really took place within the recording process. Every nuance was captured and with every listen you experience something new.

Over the last 15 years, The Used have released a collection of albums that have shaped the space of the alternative rock scene. High energy live shows, gut wrenching relatable lyrics, and melodies that blended pop sensibility and hard rock creating the perfect combination to make an everlasting impression on fans globally.  The band put everything into writing and recording The Canyon and from start to finish, you are submerged into an inescapable visceral universe and McCracken leaves us with,"That's what this record is–it's a moment of silence for what's real."​
