Ghost today announced the arrival of “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” from their forthcoming third sacred psalm, Meliora. The song will be available for instant download for those who pre-order the album, along with the previously released track “Cirice”. Meliora is due out on August 21st on Loma Vista Recordings and is the follow up to 2013’s heralded INFESTISSUMAM.

“We always have had a craving for a truly stomping riff-based song, Led Zeppelin style. Something that would sound great coming out of a car stereo standing at an American high school parking lot” – A nameless ghoul, regarding “From The Pinnacle To The Pit”

Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls will return to Summit Music Hall October 17 to deliver their satanic melodies to audiences across the continent this fall for their ‘Black To The Future’ headlining tour. 

Ghost released their second album INFESTISSUMAM on April 16th, 2013 via Loma Vista Recordings. The 10-song offering was produced by Grammy® Award winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville, TN and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. SPIN called the album, "one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013” and Pitchfork praised its “addictive as sin” hooks. Rolling Stone described their sound as “somewhere between Mastodon and Metallica, with a heavy dose of Swedish synth mixed in." In November of 2013, the band released If You Have Ghost, a five track EP recorded and produced by Dave Grohl, including cover versions of songs by Roky Erickson, ABBA, Army of Lovers, and Depeche Mode. Ghost have toured the U.S. Extensively and appeared at various music festivals across the country, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Rock on the Range.

Early praise for Meliora…

"A perfect occult Metal mass” 7 out of 7 - Metal Hammer

"The record is yet another creative giant leap forward for the group, mixing up in various and fascinating ways '70s-era psychedelic and prog rock, unhinged doom metal and classic AOR balladry - all of it informed by a pronounced, sophisticated pop consciousness that yields ear candy-like hooks that last for days." – Music Radar

October 17 - Sumitt Music Hall - Denver, CO

The Sonics Play Summit Music Hall June 18

Live Nation and Soda Jerk Presents are proud to present The Sonics at Summit Music Hall on Thursday, June 18th. Special guests TBA will open the show.
Originally from Tacoma, WA, The Sonics are claimed worldwide to be the first punk band, or garage, or hard rock, or alternative, setting the stage for all that would follow.
The Sonics' songs and precedent music creations began in 1964, with a visit from Etiquette Records co-owner Buck Ormsby. Not too impressed with the performance of cover songs, Ormsby asked if they had any originals.  A killer riff was played, but the lyrics didn't work. Two visits and a change in lyrics later, the song The Witch was born. The Sonics' first 45 single was released on Etiquette Records in 1964. 
Overnight, they became the band to see, the new sensations, the bad boys of rock.
The new enlightenment, and the band's acceptance by music fans and DJs, demanded the band's first LP. Here Are the Sonics was recorded in Seattle late 1964 and released early 1965 to raves.  This established the Sonics as one of the most progressive and popular rock bands in the Northwest.  The classic The Sonics Boom LP recorded in late 1965 and released in 1966 was the final Sonics album recordings on the Etiquette label.  Both albums feature some of the most daring and dynamic rock music ever put to 2-track tape. 
Despite an early retirement from music, The Sonics left a legacy and decades of fans who continued to spread the word and the music. Still revered, in late 2007 the Sonics regrouped and reignited on the scene in Brooklyn, NY headlining two sold out shows at the Warsaw.
The Sonics' return has sparked international promoters, journalists, reviewers, festival organizers and hordes of dedicated and new fans to embrace the group whose music has thrilled and inspired so many for so many years.

AWOLNation Announce New Album, Jimmy Kimmel Performance, and Premiere New Video

AWOLNATION is currently premiering a new video for the song titled “Windows” from the upcoming album that can be viewed on YouTube.

The wait is over! US, stream the full album now on First Play on @iTunesMusic Radio.

Fans that pre-order the new album at iTunes will instantly receive downloads of “Windows,” the title track “Run,” and the debut single “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf).” Already climbing the charts, the track quickly became the #1 most added track at alternative radio where it currently sits in the Top 10. KROQ will stream a special AWOLNATION performance live from the Red Bull Sound Space on Tuesday, March 10 at 3:00pm Pacific. Fans can view the concert in its entirety online at Tune in to catch the band performing “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC 11:35pm/10:35pm central) on Wednesday, March 11.   
Following a whirlwind two-year world tour in support of Megalithic Symphony, AWOLNATION withdrew into the depths of the California coastline to construct the sophomore effort. A culmination of the years following the release of the debut album, the 14-track Run, was written, performed and produced entirely by musical architect Aaron Bruno. The end result is a finely tuned musical masterwork that is at times, and all at once, sprawling, atmospheric, exuberant, earnest and refined with moments of a signature aggressive unease. 
Released in 2011, the band’s gold-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony was an alternative music revelation that became an astonishing success resonating with fans around the world. The album holds a number of long-running Billboard chart positions including 146 weeks on the Independent Albums chart, 111 weeks on the Billboard Top 200, 105 weeks on the Top Rock Albums chart and has topped the Heatseekers Albums chart several times over. Their hit single “Sail,” a redefining global anthem, is certified 6X Platinum in the U.S., and is the second longest charting song in the Billboard Hot 100's 55-year history amassing hundreds of millions of video views and streaming plays online while charting around the world. Following the success of “Sail,” the band would go on to have two more Top 10 charting alternative singles, “Not Your Fault” and “Kill Your Heroes,” having sold over a million downloads combined. Since the release of their debut, AWOLNATION has performed countless shows to millions of fans across the globe.  posted: March 10, 2015

Corrosion of Conformity to play Blind in Entirety April 29

Corrosion of Conformity founding member, Reed Mullin, has reunited with former COC frontman and current King Hitter vocalist, Karl Agell, to perform COC’s 1991 break out album, "Blind", live in its entirety. All Music Guide calls Blind “one of the most important heavy rock albums of the decade.”  Blind was recently named the 115th inductee into Decibel Magazine’s Hall of Fame.  Decibel editor, Albert Mudrian, notes, “you'd have to be deaf not to mention Blind, and not to recognize Karl Agell as one of the greatest metal vocalists of the past 25 years."  Corrosion of Conformity Blind pays homage to a pivotal moment in the trajectory of COC's existence as a band, a truly remarkable legacy that has lasted for over 33 years. Rounding out the Corrosion of Conformity Blind line-up, Mullin along with Agell have recruited Karl’s King Hitter bandmates Scott Little and Mike Brown on guitars. And on bass, Jerry Barrett from the legendary HR of Bad Brains solo project.

Outside of this great legacy tour and King Hitter, Agell is involved with Reed Mullin’s supergroup, Teenage Time Killers. The TTK album, as reported by Rolling Stone, will be released via Rise Records in 2015 and features a host of guests including Dave Grohl, Randy Blythe, Corey Taylor, Neil Fallon, Jello Biafra, plus Mike Dean and Woody Weatherman from COC. posted: March 10, 2015

Defeater Signs to Epitaph, Announces Marquis Tour Date and New Album

Boston-based melodic hardcore band Defeater has signed to Epitaph with plans to release a new album in 2015. After a full year of being off the road, Defeater has announced dates for their first U.S. headlining tour this spring.  Defeater plays Marquis Theater April 22.

Front man Derek Archambault performed shows for two years with a cane, but now, fully recovered from a 2014 hip replacement surgery, he is ready to perform again.
“After a year away from touring and nearly two of immobility, I have never been happier to push forward with Defeater,” said Archambault. “Releasing a new album with a label I have bought records from for more than 20 years still doesn't feel real. Like many of my peers, Epitaph's 90's roster was a big part of the soundtrack to my teenage ears. Signing to Epitaph and a full U.S. tour this spring has the makings of a banner year for Defeater.”

Defeater has released three studio albums on Bridge 9 Records, Travels (2008), Lost Ground (2009), Empty Days & Sleepless Nights (2011), and Letters Home (2013). All of the band's recordings tell the story of a working class family living in New Jersey during the Post-­?World War II era.
Defeater will release their fourth concept album in 2015 on Epitaph.

“We want to thank everyone for the unbelievable continued support of us this past year and we hope we get a chance to thank you personally in 2015. Let’s do this,” said guitarist Jay Maas. posted: January 21, 2015

Gwar Eternal Tour Announces New Scumdogs

For Immediate Release
September 29, 2014

GWAR Eternal Tour Honors Lost Leader Oderus Urungus and Introduces New Scumdogs
ANTARCTICA, 29th September 2014
The Scumdogs of the Universe are sharpening their axes and stoking the fires of their great war engines in preparation for the fall 2014 GWAR Eternal Tour. Global leaders had hoped the bouts of terror accompanying GWAR’s annual rampages would finally come to an end with the passing of the the groups monstrous captain, Oderus Urungus. But tonight politicians, religious leaders, and citizens around the world are asking, “Why?! Why won’t GWAR just leave the Earth in peace?”
The band's toothsome guitarist, BalSac the Jaws of Death had this to say:  “Something is wrong, unspeakably wrong. It feels as if the very fabric of reality has been ripped from belly to taint. And it all centers around Oderus’ disappearance. One moment, life is fantastic, as we celebrate the near sinking of Japan as a result of our recent journey across the Pacific; and the next, he is just gone. Suddenly the world is a dark, vile place with hordes of trolls biting at my hooves and daring to spit poison in my face. There is a great evil behind this, and I will not rest until I know what has become of my brother!”
Mounting evidence points to a disruption in the core of time is the sudden appearance of the Berserker Blóthar, a Scumdog warrior who claims to be from the distant past.Apparently, he was sucked through a hole in the space/time continuum and deposited onstage in front of thousands of screaming metal heads. Fortunately for GWAR, he knows the words to all of their songs and has pledged to aid them by assuming the role of lead singer. Inexplicably, he is also a hell of a bass guitarist!
And what is to be made of the mysterious new Scumdog, Vulvatron? She appears as a cybernetic female assassin who purports to know the answers that GWAR seeks because she hails from the future. While some of the band seems to have fallen under the spell of her impressive blood-spewing assets, others remain skeptical. JiZMak da Gusha was quoted as saying, “Dames, they ain’t nothin’ but trouble.”

Machine Head Tour Postponed

It is with great disappointment that Machine Head must announce the postponement of our North American tour this fall.  Our new album “Bloodstone & Diamonds” has taken longer to complete than expected and we had to make the difficult choice to either delay the album, let it go out as incomplete, or cancel the tour in order to properly finish and promote the album in the caliber it needs to be done.  We decided postponing the tour was the best decision for the record. All tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.
We feel this record is a milestone, we have something truly special here, but getting there has been a challenge.  Our vocalist / guitarist Robb Flynn just returned from a press tour where he was playing rough mixes and incomplete versions of songs for the press just to try and keep everything on time for our November release date.  
Refunds will be available for tickets at point of purchase.
Look out for rescheduled American tour dates for the beginning of the year.  
All scheduled European tour dates will remain as scheduled.  
Machine Head release their 8th album “Bloodstone & Diamonds" (and their first for Nuclear Blast Entertainment) on Nov 7th - EU, and Nov 10th in the U.S. and U.K. 
Track listing is as follows:


1. Now We Die

2. Killers & Kings

3. Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones

4. Night Of Long Knives

5. Sail Into The Black

6. Eyes Of The Dead

7. Beneath The Silt

8. In Comes The Flood

9. Damage Inside

10. Game Over

11. Imaginal Cells (Instrumental)

12. Take Me Through The Fire

Bear Hands Announce Fall Tour


Today, Bear Hands is revealing an alternate video to "Agora" from the band's recent full length Distraction (Cantora). The video, which was directed by Sami Jano and Steve Meierding,
playfully incorporates the track's lyrics into a wildly colorful montage of cluttered items strewn around the home of the titular agoraphobe. The video is available to stream or embed HERE.

Bear Hands has already had a notably busy year, but even after a tireless tour regimen with stops at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Made in America and more, the band is all but slowing down. The group has now extended their touring season even further with the addition of new dates, beginning on September 5 at the KRBZ Beach Ball in Kansas City, MO and concluding on November 15 at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY. These shows, which feature
support from Fences on select dates, include a hometown show at the Bowery Ballroom on October 6. The current list of tour dates is below, with more to be announced soon.
Distraction has been met with praise, with Pretty Much Amazing singling out Distraction cut "Bone Digger" as "just too funky to have come from human hands." Shortly after the release of Distraction, NPR called them one of the best discoveries of SXSW 2014, lauding their "serious, intricate pop." Pigeons and Planes praised Distraction's "bevy of jangling guitars and energetic songwriting," while Consequence of Sound noted that "no matter the individual song's components, though, an underlying punk ethos still shines thanks to their insatiable sense of curiosity and their utter creative fearlessness." Death and Taxes said that Distraction "blends lush guitar textures with irresistible melodies to pleasing effect," while Alternative Press said "Bear Hands are great... and they're evolving faster than most of the stuff on your hard drive."

Single Mothers Live at Marquis Next Week!

Single Mothers is adding to their marathon run of previously announced tour dates this fall. They will head down to Florida and then on over to the West Coast with many stops in between. These guys are road warriors and they're not shy about it.
They will also be in New York for shows this weekend at Brooklyn Night Bazaar (Friday), Cake Shop (Saturday) and one more on 8/31 which will be announced at the end of the week. 
We recently announced the details of Negative Qualities, their debut full-length album. The album will be released by HXC Recordings (World) and Dine Alone Records (Canada) on October 7th.
Listen to "Marbles" here.
Single Mothers shouldn't exist and neither should their debut album, Negative Qualities. Led by mercurial troubadour Drew Thomson, the band was shakily hatched in London, Ontario where it ran through a dozen members before finally recording its debut album last year. At 10 songs, Negative Qualities serves as the perfect introduction to one of Canada’s most ferocious young bands - an explosive mix of raw energy, high-end punk and intellectual rendering of small town frustration.
Here’s what some folks have already said about them…
“Imagine the Hold Steady as a hardcore punk band...underpinned by a deeper, darker nihilistic edge." - The Guardian
"Single Mothers might be that band, fusing Americana staples like Bruce Springsteen with wild and raucous punk rock…" - Brooklyn Vegan
"Ferocious and untamed, few bands give any more of themselves onstage." - Clash
“Thomson's almost entirely quotable..." - Pitchfork
"It's honest and it's worth coming back to over and over." - Fader
“The hype surrounding the band has been consistently building and it seems as though their stalwart work ethic is finally paying off." - Exclaim
"Single Mothers has a fervent energy that harks back to a time when punk was truly for degenerates and damaged weirdos." - Punknews
"Effortlessly ferocious" - NME
"Single Mothers pack more edge than a diamond cutter." - Kerrang

Authority Zero release new video for "Lift One Up"

Mesa, Arizona’s influential punk veterans Authority Zero have just released their new video for "Lift One Up" off their current release "The Tipping Point" Out Now on Hardline Entertainment

Catch the band on their upcoming RISE TO THE FALL US TOUR in Denver and Colorado Springs! Tickets available at

Watch The Video Here!
It's finally here! Back in early 2014 we put out the concert of doing a "Shakeface" video for our latest single Lift One Up off The Tipping Point. The song embraces the concept of celebration of life, friendships, and the music that brings us all together in celebration of just that. The concept was meant to involve people from all around the world and so we asked everyone to send us in their "Shakeface" videos. The driving force behind it was to make our fans and friends the biggest part of the video and what it represented. Good times, good friends, and letting loose. Unfortunately many of the videos we received we unusable due to quality or misunderstanding, so rather than exclude anyone for that purpose, we've chosen to do two versions of the video. Here is the video we shot on location in Tempe, Arizona with the full on show combined with all our local friends and family doing the "Shakeface" and getting rad at the show that day. Jason broke a rib that day during performance (which we decided to leave in for fun), people were damn near passing out, and everyone had a killer time. A huge thank you from all of us to you for attending and making it possible! Shortly after the release of this video we will be also releasing a full on "Shakeface" video with every single video (regardless of quality or filming) in it! So here it is! After months of editing, re-editing, and conceptual changes, we present you with our Official Video Premier For "Lift One Up"! 
Enjoy, Jason Devore

This Legend makes first Denver appearance

This Legend Announce West Coastin Tour

LOS ANGELES ll August 21, 2014 - In early June, FUSE exclusively announced the debut of This Legend
consisting of former Yellowcard members Longineu Parsons III and Ben Harper, Chris Castillo (Stanley and the
Search), and Steven Neufeld (Hey Mike!). The band also signed to Cyber Tracks, an LA based record label owned by
El Hefe (guitarist of NOFX) and wife Jen Abeyta.

Today, This Legend is happy to announce their first headlining tour this September, the West Coastin Tour, kicking
off at Loaded in Los Angeles on September 18th. The band is ecstatic to give fans a sneak peek into their debut
album set for release late this fall. Just last month the band finished recording at the Panda Studios with heavy-hitting
producer, Sam Pura (The Story So Far, State Champs, Basement).

Thurs. Sept 18 - Loaded, Los Angeles, CA
Fri. Sept 19 - Soda Bar, San Diego, CA
Mon. Sept 22 - Marquis Theatre, Denver, CO
Tues. Sept 23 - The Railyard, Billings, MT *(Official Dropkick Murphy's Afterparty)
Wed. Sept 24 - The Palace, Missoula, MT
Fri. Sept 26 - El Corazon Lounge, Seattle, WA
Sat. Sept 27 - Alhambra, Portland, OR

It's no surprise that creating a band takes a lot of work, but coming out of previously successful bands and having to
start from scratch takes honest passion. For the first time in over ten years, best friends Longineu Parsons III "LP"
and Ben Harper, both formerly of Yellowcard, re-united in May, 2014. They have enlisted Chris Castillo of 'Stanley
and the Search' and Steven Neufeld of 'HeyMike!' to form This Legend.

With a world renowned trumpet player as a dad, it was inevitable that LP would become an unstoppable musician.
Starting at the tender age of two, LP quickly picked up the drums with the help of professional drum instructors Max
Roach and Art Blakey. Fast forward several years, LP would meet soon-to-be best friend and guitarist Ben Harper at
Douglas Anderson School of The Arts. The two formed what would become the well known pop-punk band
Yellowcard and toured the world together for many years. Harper would later leave Yellowcard to continue his
musical endeavors with his self-founded label, Takeover Records. One of his first signings would be HeyMike!, a
punk band from Camarillo, CA. The band saw moderate success throughout the mid-2000's with the help of Harper's
guidance. Harper and Neufeld, the band's singer/guitarist, became close friends during their time working together.
Also spawning from the local scene, Castillo (having previously played in several San Gabriel Valley bands including
'Stanley and the Search') caught the attention of NOFX guitarist El Hefe and wife Jen Abeyta, as a significantly
talented singer/songwriter.

After LP's departure from Yellowcard in March of 2014, he partnered with Harper to collaborate again. Unsure of what
was to come musically, the duo wanted to lean on El Hefe for advice. El Hefe suggested they begin writing with
Castillo, a musician he and Abeyta had taken under their wing for some time. After solidifying a singer, guitarist and
drummer, a bassist and backing vocalist was needed. The group enlisted long time friend Neufeld to fill the slot. 2014
would prove to be the perfect year of break-ups and make-ups. In May of 2014, the band would sign to Cyber Tracks,
an LA based record label owned by El Hefe (guitarist of NOFX) and Abeyta. Upon selecting the band name This
Legend, LP stated, "It's a positive statement to say, 'no matter who you are and no matter how many times you get
put down in the world, you can look at yourself in the mirror and see a legend.'"

Cyber Tracks is a Los Angeles based record label founded by El Hefe (guitarist of NOFX) and wife Jen Abeyta.
Cyber Tracks has the mentality "for artists, by artists" which promises to empower bands by allowing them to share
control, revenue, master ownership, and decision making equally. Cyber Track's roster currently consists of Margate,
Implants (featuring members of Strung Out, Ten Foot Pole, Pulley, and Death By Stereo), Warner Drive,
Counterpunch, and most recently, This Legend. For more information:

Gwar makes a triumphant return to Denver for Halloween Night!

GWAR to Embark Upon the “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014”

Oderus is missing. Once the Scumdogs in GWAR finally notice this (it takes them a while to notice stuff) they will set off on a journey to find their departed brother using every resource available - including recruiting an ancient Scumdog warrior. GWAR will need the help from everyone, even the lowliest Bohab, as their enemies are plotting to take advantage of the hole in GWAR's ranks. 
BalSac The Jaws of Death on The “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014” and what to expect:
“Dark clouds of war and ill omen have gathered around GWAR. In our hour of greatest peril, Oderus has left us and our enemies stand poised, ready to strike while they sense weakness. But we shall no longer cower in our Antarctic stronghold, awaiting Destiny's final blow. This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader's favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I fear what we may encounter out there, I know that we can never return home until we have the answer we seek: ‘Where is Oderus Urungus?’”
GWAR fans have been mourning the loss of Dave Brockie, GWAR's founder and lead singer, since March. The “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014” gives them an opportunity to gather and share a bunch of feels as a community while experiencing the sickest band in this or any other world. 
Jamison Land, Beefcake the Mighty's personal slave and bass tech:
“Dave was our friend and anchor for as far back as anyone can remember.  He’s held us together, and sometimes he drove us apart.  He is our brother and we love him. Unlike a lot of prominent musicians, he was friends with all of the fans. He made GWAR fans feel special on a personal level.  The fans love Dave as much as we do and ‘The GWAR Eternal Tour 2014’ is our way of getting together and sharing that love.”
The first leg of the tour will include direct support from Decapitated; the second leg will have direct support from Corrosion of Conformity.  American Sharks will open all shows.  The tour kicks off October 15th in Norfolk, VA and runs through December 13th in Baltimore, MD.  They will play Denver on Friday, October 31st Tickets go on sale this weekend via

The band's most recent effort, their self-titled debut LP, was released in February 2014 via Velocity/Rise Records, and landed in the Billboard Top 10 in its week of release.

Alternative Press has labeled ISSUES, “the future of metalcore...” while Substream raved, “This is the album you need to jam in 2014.” Kerrang! heralded the effort as an, “almost perfect debut from genre-less hotshots..." with Rock Sound calling it, “…an extremely important album.”

ISSUES have toured with the likes of A Day To Remember, Of Mice & Men, Pierce The Veil, Bring Me The Horizon, Memphis May Fire and Sleeping With Sirens, and are known for their genre defying hybrid of heavy rock and melodic choruses, which is fueled by dueling vocalists Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn, and the unique scratching and synths, courtesy of DJ Scout.

Machinehead Live in Denver!

For Immediate Release: July 28, 2014

Bay Area Metal Titans MACHINE HEAD continue their live domina-tion of North America with the announcement of their 21-show U.S. and Canadian trek in support of their debut studio album for Nuclear Blast Entertainment, due out this fall.

With a devastating line up that features support from Finnish heavy metal powerhouse CHILDREN OF BODOM and Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA with American melodic death/thrash openers BAT-TLECROSS, the tour launches on October 4th in Denver, Colorado and includes five Canadian cities before closing out in Hollywood, California on November 1st.
MACHINE HEAD frontman & guitarist Robb Flynn checks in about the touring line-up and the upcoming shows:

Machine Head raised the bar with concert production for 2012 ‘s “Lo-cust” tour, and now we plan to raise the bar again with our biggest US show yet, and the strongest line-up out there for 2014, PE-RIOD!! This is a MUST SEE event for any heavy metal fan in Amer-ica! I am stoked that we were able to join up with our friends in Chil-dren Of Bodom, one of the premier power metal bands of our time, and our friends in Battlecross, who we toured with on Mayhem last year, and are going to bring the old-school thrash vibe. Epica’s sym-phonic metal will add a touch of much needed class to the drunken shenanigans that will surely take place on this raucous tour. Come out and be a part of history ladies and gentlemen!!
CHILDREN OF BODOM frontman & guitarist Alexi Laiho adds: “We’ve rolled with Machine Head quite a few times in the past. My best memories are kick azz shows, parties, camaraderie and vocal coaching from Robb Flynn way back in 2008, so I think we’ll have a good time tearing it up all over North America! Not a bad way to end the long and non stop tour cycle for “ Halo Of Blood ! “

“With this killer line-up, this tour is bound to be a great success,” states EPICA vocalist Simone Simons. “We will bring EPICA to a whole new level and I can't wait to play the new songs along with the old material overseas.” EPICA guitarist, songwriter, and found-ing member Mark Jansen shares: “MACHINE HEAD and CHILDREN OF BODOM are bands I listened to as teenager, so it's really amaz-ing to be on this tour with EPICA."

BATTLECROSS guitarist Tony Asta contributes the following: “What an honor to be asked to join a tour in support of MACHINE HEAD's first album release on their new label! We’re really excited to reunite with Robb and the guys, as well as CHILDREN OF BODOM - both legendary bands and friends from last summer’s Mayhem Fest. And we’ll get to see what EPICA is all about. This is a tour with something for every metal head. We can’t wait to bring it brutal throughout the USA & Canada, banging heads and melting faces from coast-to-coast. See you in the pit!”
All tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 AM EST.

Confirmed tour dates for MACHINE HEAD, COB, EPICA, and BAT-TLECROSS include:

About Pierce the Veil:
San Diego’s own Pierce the Veil  - Vic Fuentes (vocals/guitar), Mike Fuentes (drums), Tony Perry (guitar), and Jaime Preciado (bass) - has emerged as one of the fastest-rising young bands on today’s music scene, manifested by the rocket-ride success of the band's 2012 release, Collide With The Sky.  Debuting at #12 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, Collide With The Sky has sold nearly a quarter-million copies in the U.S. alone, and the music video for the track “King for a Day” (featuring Sleeping with Sirens’ Quinn), has racked-up an astounding 32-million YouTube views.  In 2012, PTV performed on the Main Stage for the entire Vans Warped Tour, and then went on to sweep the Alternative Press Readers Poll taking awards for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Live Band of the Year, Cover Art of the Year, Music Video of the Year, Best Band Merch, Best Drummer and Best Bassist of the year.  This year, marking the inauguration of AP’s Music Awards, PTV has received seven nominations including Artist of the Year and Best Live Band.  In 2013, the band’s music video “King For A Day” was awarded “Best Video of the Year” at the Kerrang! Awards, and earlier this year, the band’s critically-acclaimed documentary “This is a Wasteland,” picked up a Revolver Golden God statue for Best Film & Video. PTV has been sequestered in a New York-area studio since June working again with producer Dan Korneff (CWTS) on their fourth album which will be released in early 2015.
About Sleeping with Sirens:
Sleeping With Sirens released their latest album, Feel, in 2013 which garnered a #3 debut on Billboard's Top 200 chart.  Aside from playing to the biggest crowds each night on the main stage at Warped Tour for the past two years, Sleeping With Sirens has sold out numerous headlining tours worldwide. The group brought in Machine Gun Kelly to perform their first single off of Feel, "Alone", during their main stage run on Warped in 2013 and in London as a special surprise for fans. Sleeping With Sirens has been featured on numerous print magazine covers worldwide, including Kerrang, Rock Sound, Alternative Press, and Blunt. The band was named Alternative Press' Artist of the Year in 2013 and is nominated in 4 categories for the Alternative Press Music Awards this year, including "Artist of the Year" and "Album of the Year" and will also be performing. Having just announced a week of surprise performances at this year's Warped Tour to be followed by Reading & Leeds festivals in the UK, this only marks the beginning of what will be Sleeping With Sirens' biggest release yet.
About Beartooth:
Beartooth is a Columbus, OH hardcore band fronted by 21 year-old Caleb Shomo, with guitarists Taylor Lumley and Kamron Bradbury, bassist Oshie Bichar, and drummer Brandon Mullins. Off the strength of their debut EP Sick they built a strong and dedicated following; their songs have garnered two million plays on YouTube and primed them for the release of their first full-length album Disgusting, out now on Red Bull Records.  Critical praise for Disgusting has been effusive: Alternative Press featured Caleb on the cover of their July Warped Tour issue, Kerrang called them “the world’s best new band” and Rolling Stone named Beartooth a “New Artist You Need To Know” for the month of June. The five-piece has toured consistently both stateside and in the UK and Europe, rising from local basement shows to national tours with the likes of Memphis May Fire, August Burns Red and Of Mice & Men, and they are currently out on the Vans Warped Tour.
About This Wild Life:
This Wild Life is Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso from Long Beach, California. The two met while working at a musical instrument store and quickly bonded over their love for hardcore. Soon enough they began playing shows as pop-punk band This Wild Life. After countless shows, local success, and strong online reaction with YouTube views in the millions, they found new inspiration from Dashboard Confessional and they reinvented themselves as an acoustic duo. Clouded is their debut full-length and was recorded with Aaron Marsh of Copeland. Clouded saw phenomenal first week success on the Billboard charts, debuting as the #1 Top New Artist, #1 Top Alternative New Artist, #49 Digital Album, and the #17 Independent Album. Clouded has garnered much critical acclaim. According to Alternative Press it is “outrageously well-written songs, played well with much skill…everything about this one is a winner” with a 4.5/5 star review. Absolute Punk calls it “one of the most impressive debut albums this year” giving it an 8.5/10. This Wild Life is the result of the hard work of the Long Beach friends. Their journey has been marked by small triumphs, big struggles and countless floor shows, bringing This Wild Life’s heartfelt, melodic and acoustic punk-rock to a bigger audience they’ve earned.

Denver's Riot Fest & Sideshow to be Staged at Sports Authority Field at Mile High

Byers, Colorado and May Farms to be recreated onsite
Riot Fest Officially Files Formal Appeal With Arapahoe County

For immediate release – July 18, 2014   
Riot Fest is happy to announce that after visiting many great venues over the course of the past week that Sports Authority Field at Mile High will be the official home for Riot Fest & Sideshow, Sept, 19-21, 2014 in Denver, Colorado.
Although dozens of venues were interested in hosting the event, organizers chose the stadium for several factors, one of which being that stadium management have allowed Riot Fest to recreate Byers, Colorado and May Farms on the new fest grounds.  Riot Fest made many friends in the Byers community, and it truly saddens organizers to be forced to move the fest away from its inaugural home – but if the farm is unavailable, they’ll bring the farm to Denver. Moreover, as previously promised, free parking will be made available to the festival's patrons, and Mile High's location will allow for public transportation options through the RTD.  All tickets will be honored at the new location and refunds for those who purchased camping spots will be processed starting today.
Outside of bringing the May Farms aesthetic to the new site, organizers will also go ahead with the previously planned carnival rides and games, a miniature golf course, lucha libre, a large circus tent with oddities performers and a long list of amazing food vendors.  Other plans include turfing the parking lot of the stadium and bringing all the things people love about May Farms (tractors, hay bales, etc) together with all the things to love about a country fair (rides, a pie eating contest, apple bobbing and more).  Even the stages and vendor rows have been renamed to indicate Riot Fest’s support of Byers, Colorado.
To thank the Byers residents, Riot Fest organizers have also confirmed the following:
  • Any Byers resident who wants to come to Riot Fest this year will receive complimentary tickets as well as free daily shuttle service to and from May Farms and Sports Authority Field.  Details will be announced next week on how residents can sign-up for this.
  • Riot Fest will also allow several Byers businesses and other I-70 Corridor businesses who supported them free vending space at no cost.
  • Riot Fest has also announced a $5,000 scholarship to be awarded to one graduating senior who plans on majoring in music, arts, business or marketing.  Riot Fest has now asked other partners, industry friends and other Colorado businesses to contribute in hopes of getting that scholarship up to $20,000.
Hundreds of residents of Byers wrote letters and showed support for Riot Fest in the past weeks and organizers would sincerely like to thank them for their support.  Although Riot Fest has now officially chosen Sports Authority Field at Mile High as their 2014 home and will not move, producers will formerly file an appeal this morning against the Arapahoe County’s decision regarding their 2014 temporary use permits.
One, two, and three-day passes for Denver's festival are still available and on sale now at or visit for more information

Macy Gray Live in Denver!


Internationally acclaimed artist Macy Gray today announced the official release date for her new studio album 'The Way' as well as new North American tour dates for the fall. 'The Way' will be available on all digital platforms and in all good record stores from October 7th, 2014.
Macy Gray -- a multi-award winning, multi-platinum selling singer, songwriter, actress and mother of three teenagers -- has been overturning fan expectation and industry formula since the beginning of her musical career in 2000 with her critically acclaimed debut album ‘On How Life Is’.
Now, with the release of her forthcoming studio album titled 'The Way', out on October 7th, the truly gifted songwriter and brilliantly unique vocalist offers us a taste of what's to come with the new teaser track "Stoned" taken from this highly anticipated full-length.
“I wanted to create a record that reflects who I’ve become as a woman, mother and artist,” says Macy Gray. “This album is very personal to me. I want my fans to understand the place where I’m at in life and feel inspired by my music because it’s relatable.”
With a colorful career that includes multiple Grammy, Billboard, MTV and BRIT Awards, and record sales of over 25 million worldwide, the integrity and innovation of Macy Gray’s artistry has allowed her to forge her own path to success and win fans and critics from all around the world. Her music transcends genres, from experimental soul and alternative rock, to retro-disco and hip-hop.
However, what the accolades, awards and impressive sales figures from over the years have failed to illustrate is the depth and breadth of Macy’s artistry and vision. Her unparalleled rise to international fame and journey over the past 14 years has been an interesting one, and her latest album ‘The Way’ reflects the woman and artist that Macy Gray has become today.
As a single mother of three and an established career woman in both music and film, Gray is now ready to share her journey with the world.  ‘The Way’ features uplifting tracks laced with Gray’s signature sound, as she covers powerful topics such as female independence, triumph over adversity, self-love and expression.
‘The Way’ (Macy’s eighth studio album), was written and recorded during her highly successful 14th anniversary tour for On How Life Is and is set for release on October 7th, 2014 (KOBALT Music Group).

at sold-out headlining shows, opening for Guns ‘n’ Roses and Courtney Love and went overseas to
perform at music festivals in both Europe and Australia. In fall of 2013 the girls decided it was time
to put the show on the road again and they spent six weeks playing sold out shows across the

took on Australia and Canada to perform additional sold out shows. They can’t wait to bring their
show back to the US this fall!

Spirit, Soul, & Song Tour Cancelled

Unfortunately, both Spirit, Soul, & Song Tour shows on 6/3 & 6/5 in Denver and Colorado Springs have been cancelled. Please return to point of purchase for refunds.

A Message From Cas Haley:

It is with great sadness that Cas Haley has had to drop out of the first ever Spirit, Soul & Songs Tour, which was to feature acoustic sets by him, Kimie, Mike Love and Tubby Love. After suffering some recent issues with his voice, Cas saw a specialist in the last week and has been ordered on to vocal rest and ongoing voice therapy to recover. He has had to cancel his appearances on this tour, along with sets at Reggae In The Hills and California Roots Festival. The good news is that Cas expects to make a full recovery after a couple months of rest and hard work.  As a consequence our show will have to be cancelled.   Each artist hopes to set up rescheduled shows in those markets soon. Cas himself says, “I am so sorry to be disappointing fans expecting to see me, but I’ll be back on the road as soon as I can. In the meantime, I urge all of my fans to go out and support Kimie, Mike Love and Tubby Love, amazing musicians I am proud to call my friends!”

The Missing Persons’ frontwoman releases her new album, ‘Missing in Action,’ on March 4.

Dale Bozzio - Missing Persons - Hello Hello

Singer Dale Bozzio, 58, in a publicity shot for “Missing in Action,” which is set for release on March 4 on Cleopatra Records.

A new-wave Lady Gaga defined by her outrageous, barely-there attire, high-pitched voice and color wheel of dyed hair, Dale Bozzio tore through the ’80s as the audacious frontwoman of Missing Persons, best-known for pop-rock classics such asWordsDestination Unknown and Walking in L.A.

Now, she’s back with a brand-new solo album titledMissing in Action, out March 4 on Cleopatra Records, which dips back into the “original Missing Persons era but in the current atmosphere” of electronic music, Bozzio says. “It’s a little bit eclectic, it’s avant-garde, but melodically, the vocals are very upfront.”

Missing Persons feat. Dale Bozzio – Missing in Action

Produced by former Yes member Billy Sherwoodand recorded in Los Angeles, Missing in Actionarrives in a period of rebirth for Bozzio, 58, whose parents and best friend died in recent years. “I was kind of hiding but now things have changed for me,” Bozzio says. “I’m just going back heavy into the music business.” The album’s release date is especially significant for her, as it’s the day that her mother died — a purely coincidental decision on the part of the record label, but one that makes Bozzio reflect on where she’s been and what lies ahead.

“I’ve been in this business for many, many years,” Bozzio says. “This is what I started and I will finish it. I will always be there for all my listeners and I believe this is the beginning of something for me to hopefully have another 10 years of work left.”

Once the album is released, she hopes to pursue other projects and passions, whether that means touring, painting more, releasing a cookbook or collaborating with other artists.

And those dream collaborators include? Billy Bob Thornton and Nicki Minaj, she says. “I’ve always been an independent person but that would be an interesting adventure.”

Stream Hello, Hello, the first single from Missing in Action, exclusively on USA TODAY.

The Ataris' So Long, Astoria Reunion Tour Live in Denver on March 15, 2014!

December 17, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA – For the first time in a decade, the classic lineup of The Ataris will reconvene to perform their million-selling album, So Long, Astoria, in its entirety from start to finish.   For one tour only, Kristopher Roe, Mike Davenport, Chris Knapp and John Collura will share the stage to celebrate their beloved album, performing fan-favorite hits like “So Long, Astoria,” “The Saddest Song” and their iconic version of Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer.”  Support will include: Authority Zero, Drag The River, Versus The World and Gasoline Heart.  Tickets for the upcoming tour will go on sale to the public on December 20th.
In conjunction with today’s tour announcement, The Ataris has released part one of a new mini-documentary about the band’s reunion and the making of So Long, Astoria.  Watch it now, exclusively at XXXXXXX: [INSERT LINK]
Formed in 1996, The Ataris went on to sell hundreds of thousands of albums on small independent label Kung Fu Records before signing to Columbia Records in 2001.  In 2003, the band released their career-defining album, So Long, Astoria, which sold over a million copies and spawned the hits, “In this Diary,” “The Saddest Song” and “Boys of Summer.” 
After headlining multiple Warped Tours and selling out major tours of their own, the classic line-up of The Ataris disbanded in 2004, leaving behind a legacy of influence and rock-radio anthems that still live on today.
A decade later, that lineup will reunite for one tour to celebrate So Long, Astoria, an album that helped redefine punk rock in the early 2000’s with vivid confessionals and melodic heartfelt sing-alongs.
“I’m looking forward to going out and bringing these songs to a crowd and really giving it our all, and hopefully bringing some of these fun memories back to our fans,” singer/guitarist Kristopher Roe says.  “I really feel like the most important thing is to be reconnected with three of my old best friends.  I’m excited to go out and make music with them again.”
“It’s a lot of nostalgia to come back and do this tour,” guitarist John Collura adds.  “It’s a celebration of what the four of us accomplished as a band.”
“This tour, for me, means more of redemption,” concludes bassist Mike Davenport.  “Us four reunited again, performing what I think is one of our best albums.”
“I haven’t seen these guys in forever,” drummer Chris Knapp says.  “It’s going to be crazy.”

Alexi Laiho of CHILDREN OF BODOM jams the 
COB classic "Downfall" with "School of Rock" students in NYC!


CHILDREN OF BODOM's enthralling mix of modern heavy metal, melodic hooks and the instrumental acrobatics have solidified the critically acclaimed Finnish band as one of the most revered hard rock acts in the world and one of the leading voices of metal's new generation.  The group's superstar frontman / guitarist Alexi Laiho is known worldwide for his ambitious guitar playing and was named "Best Metal Guitarist" by the readers of Guitar WorldCHILDREN OF BODOM has been called "technically dazzling" by the New York Times and "One of the most talented metal bands of our time" by VICE. More than 15 years into its career, COB continues to grow its ever-expanding fan base via supercharged live shows that have also made fans of some of hard rock's biggest names. The band's name is derived from the infamous Lake Bodom murders, which took place in Finland in 1960.   
     In addition to Alexi Laiho, CHILDREN OF BODOM features Henkka Seppälä (bass), Roope Latvala (guitar), Jaska Raatikainen (drums) and Janne Warman (keyboards).
     CHILDREN OF BODOM is available to speak with interested media now.  To chat with the band / attend a live performance, simply contact Carl Schultz @ ACTION! PR via any of the means listed below. Updated CHILDREN OF BODOM news and tour information will be made available via COB online and ACTION! PR online (website / facebook / twitter).    

     "Whatever you do, don't be discouraged, if you practice every day for the next 15 years maybe you'll be able to play on a level similar to Laiho. If you're not familiar with Children Of Bodom, boy, are you in for a treat." - NOISEY

     "The secret to their success has been an unapologetic penchant for lifting elements of death, black, and thrash metal and polishing them up to make their semi-abrasive stylings accessible for a younger generation." - PITCHFORK

     "technically dazzling" - NEW YORK TIMES
     "the band's latest release, Halo of Blood still retains and expands upon the signature elements of their sound, namely New Wave of British Heavy Metal-style minor riffs, harmonized melodic lines, double-bass-drum-powered sixteenthnotes at breakneck tempos, and lyrical themes that even Edgar Allen Poe might find macabre." - GUITAR PLAYER
     "Alexi Laiho is a guitarist and vocalist in a class by himself. His total domination of his instrument while screaming alternate rhythms at the same time will keep aspiring musicians hot on practicing, for Laiho proves it can be done. Children of Bodom are masters of their craft and purists of the genre...this will be a big year for Children of Bodom...and their fans." - POPMATTERS
     "'Halo of Blood' represents a rejuvenated Children of Bodom...Structurally strong and bewitching music" - LOUDWIRE

Sno-core Tour feat. Pretty Reckless CANCELLED


Taylor Momsen and her band THE PRETTY RECKLESS have unfortunately been forced to pull out of the forthcoming SnoCore Tour, which they were set to headline this year.  Due to acute laryngitis and walking pneumonia, Taylor Momsen has been placed on vocal rest for the time being. Originally set to kick off 1/29 in Lincoln, NE, The SnoCore Tour--a celebration of music and winter sports also featuring Heaven’s Basement, The Letter Black, Crobot and Empire Street this year--has been cancelled (see all cancelled tour dates below).
The band regrets this inconvenience to all the fans who bought tickets, which will be refunded at the point of purchase, and look forward to seeing everyone later in the year.
SnoCore Tour Dates that have been cancelled:                         02/19              Denver, CO                    The Summit Music Hall     

THE PRETTY RECKLESS formed in 2009 and released their debut album LIGHT ME UP in 2010 and a follow-up EP HIT ME LIKE A MAN in 2012. After two years on the road supporting LIGHT ME UP, the band has risen through rock ‘n’ roll’s ranks to become a polarizing presence. Over the course of their debut and EP, the quartet has sold over 1 million combined albums and digital singles and have supported Evanescence, Guns N’ Roses and Marilyn Manson on tour in addition to headline runs in both the U.S. and abroad. MOMSEN and her bandmates delivered nothing short of killer performances on their just-wrapped headlining North American “Going To Hell Tour” with a set list including new material off GOING TO HELL and the group’s debut LP LIGHT ME UP. posted: January 28, 2014

Manchester Orchestra announces new shows!

Manchester Orchestra will release Cope on April 1, 2014 through their recent partnership with Loma Vista Recordings and their very own Favorite Gentlemen Recordings. The new full-length album from the Atlanta-based band was self-produced alongside their long-time collaborating partner Dan Hannon, and mixed by John Agnello at Fluxivity Studios in Brooklyn. They recorded the entire record in the home studio they built themselves after six months spent gutting and refurbishing the old house they used to live in together. The follow up to 2011’s Simple Math, the band’s critically acclaimed and highest charting album to date, Cope is an unrelenting and unapologetically heavy 38 minutes of rock. Manchester Orchestra will hit the road this spring, performing songs from the new album for fans on a headline two-month tour of North America. Upcoming tour dates below.  The band will also be headlining dates in April overseas in the UK.
Supporting the run will be Balance and Composure as well as Brooklyn native and Favorite Gentlemen label-mates Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band. Several tour dates will be performed as part of the Freedom Project™, an event series presented by blu eCigs. Additional details regarding this partnership are to come. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 24th to the general public for both North America as well as the UK.  The confirmed opener for UK will be Gang Of Youths.
Manchester Orchestra found itself at a crossroads as they approached making their fourth studio album -- in between labels and uncertain of the future for the first time since lead singer and songwriter Andy Hull started the band as a teenager almost a decade ago. He was barely finished with high school back then, and as they started writing, Hull and his band mates found themselves transitioning into the adult reality that shit happens. “Cope, to me, means getting by. It means letting go, and being OK with being OK,” says Hull. “You can cope in a positive way when bad things happen, or a negative way, and that blend was a big lyrical theme for me on this album.”
The behemoth title track “Cope” was written during one of the earliest sessions for the album, and it helped chart the course for everything that followed. “We wanted to make the kind of album that’s missing at this time in rock: something that’s just brutal and pounding you over the head every track,” Hull explains. “Whereas Simple Math was a different palate with each song, a different color, I wanted this to be black and red the whole time.”
After several months of writing and recording between June 2012 and March 2013, the band – lead guitarist Robert McDowell, keyboardist/percussionist Chris Freeman, bassist Andy Prince and drummer Tim Very – were forced to pair down the 28 or so completed songs in order to round out the album that would become Cope. “We demoed some slower, introspective songs,” relates Hull, “but we had to set those aside because this album is not that. This album was about being cool with dedicating yourself to something and sticking through with it. Even the album title is bold and straight-to-the-point.”
The direct and succinct nature of Cope is all the more refreshing considering two of the main factors surrounding its recording. Unlike their first three full-length albums where the band worked with producers Joe Chiccarelli and Dan Hannon in established, expensive studios, Cope was self-produced under the watchful and helpful eye of Hannon without any set limitations or times constraints. “There was no studio clock ticking, so we had the freedom to take our time and do whatever we wanted,” says Hull. “It was really cool, but weird, not having someone there saying ‘this is what you should do.’ It was more difficult, but more rewarding.”
Ten years after 17 year-old Hull started Manchester Orchestra as an outlet for his tender bedroom recordings, the singer-songwriter says he’s reached a place where he trusts his and his band’s instincts more than ever.

Iration Live at The Black Sheep - Feb 13th!


(Lt to Rt): Joe Dickens, Cayson Peterson, Micah Pueschel, Adam Taylor
IRATION will kick off 2014 by doing what they love so much, hitting the road to play music and hang out with their fans. The reggae-influenced rockers will embark on the coast-to-coast “Automatic Winter Tour”--with support from Natural Vibrations, The Movement and select dates with Micah Brown--beginning January 24 in Ventura, CA, weaving their way across the U.S. to Florida and wrapping back around to close out March 22 in Anaheim, CA (itinerary below). Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday (11/8) via It was also recently announced that IRATION will again take the main stage at the 5th Annual California Roots Music & Arts Festival happening May 23-25, 2014 in Monterey, CA. Early bird tickets are on sale now at
This year has represented a period of growth for the Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based band, with their career elevating to a new level. Armed with their third full-length album AUTOMATIC, IRATION--Micah Pueschel (Guitar/Vocals), Joe Dickens (Drums), Adam Taylor (Bass) and Cayson Peterson (Keyboards)--further pushed their musical boundaries, with an emphasis on the craft of songwriting, while staying true to the sound their fans love. The band collaborated with Cage The Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish who is featured on several tracks and helped co-produce select songs on the album along with long-time studio partner JP Hesser of Castaway 7 Studios in Ventura, CA.
“To me, Automatic is very, very different from [2010 album] Time Bomb,” MICAH told the Phoenix New Times. “It's still us, but what made Time Bomb a popular record was hooks, feel-good music, good rhythms--uplifting, for the most part. But we also wanted to do more songs that were geared to traditional roots reggae and have some rock influences. We wanted to experiment and do some acoustics…Automatic is much more diverse and eclectic as far as style. Another way is that the lyrical content is more mature.
“We worked with Lincoln Parish and he brought a lot of the rock. We wanted more rock. Every record that we've made has had a different set of influences. When we first started out we were really focused on making reggae tracks. With [2008 EP] Sample This and Time Bomb it was more pop and reggae and then we strayed from that sound a bit with [2011 EP] Fresh Grounds. Then with Automatic we wanted to make a record that had all of things we've already done but with more of a rock element.” (9/14/13)
The new direction paid off as the release of AUTOMATIC is their most successful release to date. The 16-track collection immediately shot all the way up to the #1 spot on both the Billboard and iTunes Reggae Albums charts, as well as #7 on the iTunes Overall Albums chart, #75 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and #17 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.
A music video for the album’s first official single “Back Around” has garnered over 35,000 views on YouTube. Watch the video--shot in IRATION’s Santa Barbara, CA hometown--here: The song also received radio airplay nationwide, reaching #1 on most stations’ playlists where it was added, including spending several weeks at #1 for San Diego’s 91X. posted: November 6, 2013

A Great Big World new album, tour


(New York, New York) – Rising singer-songwriter pop duo A Great Big World have been personally tapped by pop superstar Christina Aguilera to perform their palpably powerful and poetic single "Say Something" live on NBC's "The Voice" Tuesday, November 5. Upon first listen, Aguilera felt the song’s impact and immediately forged a bond with its message in addition to the outpouring from countless fans across the country.
The songstress became so emotionally connected to the track that she asked to join the duo of Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino in the studio to re-record the song, lending her legendary voice to a new take, adding a new dimension and elevating it to new heights. The results are stirring, soulful, and stunning. The song will be available for purchase at all digital retailers on November 4th.
About the track, Aguilera enthusiastically comments, "I'm only taking on projects that feel good to me and represent a purpose of the 'here and now' in my life, and that's what this song 'Say Something' actually does for me."
Aguilera isn't the only one singing the group's praises. "Say Something" has encouraged an outpouring of emotion online, generating a genuine catharsis. So often the internet can become a hotbed for negativity, A Great Big World have turned it into a place of solace and inspiration. Listeners have taken to YouTube to comment confessing things like, “This song says what I couldn’t say,”"This song is amazing," “I’ve had this song on repeat for days now,” “I know what this feels like,” and "Although it is sad, this song is about moving on and moving forward, so smile.” Link to YouTube:
Ian and Chad are humbled by the song’s response, "It is a healing and hopeful song and we simply cannot believe how many people this song has resonated with. It's one of the greatest honors in the world to know that your art is making a positive impact. Even more so, it's an incredible privilege to have the support of Christina. Collaborating with her is something we'll both remember forever."
The group’s debut full length for Black Magnetic/Epic Records “Is There Anybody Out There?” will be available for digital and physical pre-order November 4th and it includes instant downloads of "Say Something," "Say Something" featuring Christina Aguilera, and their hit "This Is the New Year".
Critics also continue to extol this twosome. Billboard writes, "A Great Big World package the understated tones of Adele's ballads with dreamlike lyricism of Ingrid Michaelson on tear-jerking single 'Say Something'," while Perez Hilton calls them, "quirky and sweet". ARTISTdirect adds, "It's an artfully crafted collection of some of the most poignant, powerful and passionate songs you'll hear all year. It's also the start of something Great…" and pop singer Christina Perri tweeted about "Say Something", "I am breathless. This is everything."
She's not the only one who has fallen under their spell. Making its television debut on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance during a poignant and passionate performance by show victor Amy Yakima, choreographed by Stacey Tookey, "Say Something" instantly resonated with audiences everywhere. Immediately after airing, the track climbed up the iTunes Top Singles Chart as listeners identified with its message. It went on to become one of the highest-selling songs this season and had the largest increase in sales of any song following placement on the show. This follows up a bevy of notable placements for the duo. Their song “This Is the New Year” gained new life in 2013 by being performed by the cast of Fox’s hit TV series Glee. “This Is the New Year” has been featured on One Tree Hill, The Amazing Race, ESPN, Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray ShowThe Today Show and the The O Music Awards. 
A Great Big World began in the crowded practice rooms at NYU where Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino were both studying music business while fostering dreams of writing and performing. Fast forward a few years, and in 2012 A Great Big World was born. Making positive, piano-driven pop bursting with harmonies the duo gained support through fans entirely on Kickstarter to fund their first EP which resulted in a recording contract with Epic Records.
The one question that matters for music fans this fall is Is There Anybody Out There?

Albert Hammond Jr. Live in the Moon Room at Summit this November!


“Rife with incessant high-range guitar work, mechanistic rhythms and
shrugging, swaggering vocals.”Stereogum

Albert Hammond, Jr.’s new EP AHJ is now streaming in its entirety exclusively on Rolling Stone. Of the new EP, Rolling Stone says, “Hammond sounds fully recharged…howling his best vocals ever over stuttering, futuristic riffs of ‘St. Justice,’ the manic grooves of ‘Rude Customer’ and the anthemic ‘Cooker Ship’” ( In anticipation of AHJ, Cult Records premiered the track “St. Justice,” while BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe premiered “Rude Customer” as The Hottest Record in the World. Hammond appears on the “Late Show with David Letterman” tonight, performing “St. Justice.” To celebrate the release of AHJ, Hammond will tour the U.S. this November. Please see reverse for full tour routing.

AHJ will be released October 8 on Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records and follows Hammond’s previous solo efforts, 2006’s Yours to Keep, which NME called “an intimate, frequently beautiful and consistently surprising record that gets better with every listen,” and 2008’s ¿Cómo Te Llama?. Of the new EP’s relationship with his earlier releases, Hammond says, “It’s a combination of both previous recordings, which in turn makes it feel like it’s the best material that I’ve made so far.”

AHJ was produced, engineered and mixed by Grammy-winning producer Gus Oberg and recorded at Hammond’s two studios, Broome Street in Manhattan and One Way Studios in upstate New York. Of working with Oberg, Hammond says “I’ve been working with him since my first solo project, after we met and became best friends. We get along and we understand each other musically, so everything just flows.” Hammond played all of the instruments on the EP himself, excluding drums on several tracks, which were played by longtime collaborator Matthew Frank Romano.

Since the release of ¿Cómo Te Llama?, Hammond has released two critically acclaimed albums with The Strokes, 2011’s Angles and this year’s Comedown Machine. Of his inspirations for AHJ, Hammond said “Once you play music for a living, you’re always thinking about stuff. Conversations with friends and things you hear in moviesthings come up and become lyrics. Hearing other people’s songs becomes like competitionyou hear something and mentally you want to beat it. Life in general is pretty inspiring.”

Cult Records is helmed by Julian Casablancas. In addition to Albert Hammond, Jr., forthcoming releases include C O L O R, Exclamation Pony, Rey Pila, Reputante and more.

Twin Forks Live in Denver - October 15th at Hi Dive!

Release Date: Sept. 17th Premieres Teaser Video
On Tour This Fall
“Whatever makes the audience stomp their feet and sing at the
top of their lungs, that?s what I want to be doing,” says
singer/guitarist Chris Carrabba of TWIN FORKS. Their debut
self-tltled EP is due out on September 17, 2013 on Dine Alone
Records. Together with mandolin player Suzie Zeldin, bassist
Jonathan Clark and drummer Ben Homola, Carrabba harnesses
the acoustic spirit of his work with Dashboard Confessional and
channels it through the rootsy classic folk of his childhood. What
the four of them create are songs that are anthemic enough for
massive singsongs and personal and intimate enough for listening
on an iPod.

Twin Forks will be launching into a six week national tour, starting in Orlando, FL on September 17th, circling the
States and wrapping up on October 29th in Houston, TX (dates below). A special pre-sale available to fans is available
at In addition, is exclusively premiering the tour trailer featuring the song
“Cross My Mind” and can be see here:

Kicking off with the rousing hoedown of “Back To You”, complete with hoots and hollerin? in the background,
the Twin Forks EP is a perfect introduction to what the band is about. From the soaring vocal melodies of
“Something We Just Know” and whistle-led skip of “Cross My Mind” to the propulsive Celtic closer “Scraping Up
The Pieces”, the five song EP is celebratory and its energy...infectious. “When I started playing acoustic-based
music, I wasn?t trying to avoid traditional folk because I didn?t love it -- I just loved it so much and didn?t wanna do an
injustice to it,” Carrabba notes. “And I had other influences and I thought, why can?t I combine this punk and hardcore
feeling with this classic folk feeling -- because they were both such massive loves of mine. But right now I?m more
excited about utilizing the age-old, time-tested thing and trying to excel within the parameters of a traditional

With his multi-platinum band Dashboard Confessional, on indefinite hiatus, Carrabba decided to get smaller instead
of getting bigger. Pulling together friends from other bands (Zeldin from The Narrative, Clark from Bad Books) and
old friend Homola on drums, they crafted a sound that balances their punk and alt-rock backgrounds with music of a
more traditional flair. With recent shows at SxSW, Montreal?s Osheaga Festival, and a national tour with Ivan &
Alyosha and Lone Bellow, Twin Forks attracted a legion of fans who are ready for the band?s next step, and this EP is
exactly what they've been waiting for. “The goal is always to do our best to get it right in the same room with each
other, looking at each other, laughing with each other,” Carrabba explains about the chemistry within the band. “I
think you can feel that all over the songs.

Twin Forks will be released via Dine Alone Records on September 17, 2013.

Larry and His Flask Embark on Huge Fall US Tour

Tourmates include Murder By Death & Rev. Horton Heat
Oregon barn-burners Larry and His Flask are set to take their raucous, high-octane show all over the US this fall, starting with Asheville, NC next week followed by Tennessee's Muddy Roots Festival, then onto a full US tour in September with Murder By Death.  October sees them headlining across the Midwest and Southeast on their way to The Fest in Gainesville, FL before heading West and supporting Rev.

Larry and His Flask have been playing together for over 10 years, touring non-stop across the globe with their incredibly dynamic, roof-raising live shows.  In addition to Muddy Roots Festival and The Fest, the band's Fall run of dates also sees them playing festivals including Musicfest NW (Portland, OR), Shindig Music Festival (Baltimore), the Bend (OR) Fall Festival, Pygmalion Music Festival (Champaign, IL) and the MidPoint Music Festival (Cincinnati, OH).  Be sure to try to catch them when they come through your city!

Watain Announce North American Tour!

WATAIN announces North American headlining tour with IN SOLITUDE, TRIBULATION
With the release of their forthcoming full-length, The Wild Hunt, drawing near, Swedish black metallers WATAIN are now ready to announce their first North American tour in support of the album. Featuring IN SOLITUDE and TRIBULATION as support, this month-long headlining trek (aptly named “The Wild Hunt North America”) showcases some of Sweden’s finest metal from coast to coast. See below for all upcoming dates.
WATAIN comments: “Starting the first full tour for The Wild Hunt in North America seems quite appropriate, considering how many severe experiences and sleepless nights that country has bestowed upon us while riding through its strange wilderness… A thousand years and a thousand deaths have passed since we last visited the States, so prepare yourself to face something very, very old and very, very hungry. Deformed from both victory and defeat, distorted by a constant influx of powers residing beyond the borders of this world, we now return to join forces with our ever loyal US supporters. With us we will have two acts that has the capacity of transforming the audience into one big open wound before we go on stage, ready then to receive the lethal yet illuminating venom of Watain. ”

Due out August 20th in North America, The Wild Hunt is a sonic and lyrical tour-de-force that explores WATAIN's roots, such as BATHORY and DISSECTION, while also remaining truly unique. Having lost none of their integrity, WATAIN continues to push the boundaries of the scene with their fifth full-length, refusing to compromise their sound and vision. Amid the tracks teeming with the band's classic sound, The Wild Hunt also features clean vocals (a first for the trio!) which, as front-man Erik puts it, " just us being brutally personal and honest. It shows another important facet of the WATAIN world." As this new album will soon prove, WATAIN truly lives in a world all their own.

We Came As Romans Back in Denver this Fall!




Aug 06 - We Came As Romans announces The Tracing Back Roots Tour, presented by Tilly's and MerchNOW and in association with Alternative Press and Secret Artist. The full US-headline tour kicks off on October 2 in Grand Rapids, MI and wraps up in the band's hometown of Detroit, MI on November 3. The tour will also feature special guests: Silverstein, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, the Color Morale, and Dangerkids.

We Came As Romans is touring in support of their new full-length album, Tracing Back Roots, which was released on July 23 and debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, No. 1 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart and No. 2 on the Independent Albums Chart. "We are so excited to have had such a great debut for our third record," expresses guitarist/lyricist Joshua Moore. "Making it to the top ten is an amazing accomplishment and we are forever grateful to our fans for supporting us and getting us there!"
Tracing Back Roots has already received rave reviews from fans and press alike, with Alternative Press stating, "We Came As Romans come out remarkably strong on their third full-length...'Never Let Me Go' has a surging, anthemic power (and a killer chorus) that makes it a prime candidate for radio airplay-and plenty of tearful sing-alongs at gigs," Rock Sound declaring, "We Came As Romans have boldly and brilliantly hit their stride, and designed the melodic metalcore blueprint for years to come," and Kerrang! concluding, "Tracing Back Roots will ensure that We Came As Romans continue to rise to the top. And deservedly so."

Tracing Back Roots was recorded in Los Angeles with renowned producer John Feldmann [The Used, Black Veil Brides, All Time Low] – a dream come true for the band, whose average age is just 23 years old. We Came As Romans is comprised of Dave Stephens [vocals], Kyle Pavone [vocals], Joshua Moore [lyrics/guitar], Eric Choi [drums], Lou Cotton [guitar] and Andrew Glass [bass].

Before the start of The Tracing Back Roots Tour, We Came As Romans will first head overseas for a run of shows in Europe and the Philippines. Immediately after their US headliner, the band will return overseas for the UK/Europe Vans Warped Tour and dates with Parkway Drive before wrapping up the year with Vans Warped Tour Australia.

Tracing Back Roots is available worldwide through Nuclear Blast [Europe, South Africa, Russia], We Are Unified [Australia, New Zealand], Triple Vision Records [Japan] and through Equal Vision Records for North America and all remaining territories.

Roadrunner Records has announced the release of the long awaited label debut from The Devil Wears Prada. “8:18” – which follows 2011’s breakthrough, “DEAD THRONE” – arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on September 17th.
The Devil Wears Prada officially unveiled the start of pre-orders for “8:18” with a direct video invitation to their fans around the world, streaming now at their official YouTube channel, All pre-orders at receive instant free MP3 downloads of two new tracks, “Home for Grave” and “Martyrs.”  Pre-orders are also available now on the iTunes Store.
“Martyrs,” the first track/video from “8:18,” had its premiere earlier today exclusively via Produced by The Devil Wears Prada, the clip was shot and edited by the band’s own Jeremy DePoyster and Andy Trick.
Furthermore, The Devil Wears Prada have announced details of an upcoming North American headline tour.  “The 8:18 Tour”, which will see the band accompanied by The Ghost Inside, Volumes and Texas In July, gets underway November 2nd in Detroit at the Royal Oak Music Theatre and continues through December 20th, wrapping in Toronto, ON (see attached itinerary).  Tickets for all dates will be on sale August 2nd.  Singer Mike Hranica commented, "We've loved playing two new songs over the course of this year, and with that being said we're really excited to debut more material live.  For me, ‘8:18’ is meant to reflect a live sense of vocals, so doing another headline tour like this is going to be excellent." For complete details and ticket information, please visit
Long acclaimed as among one of the most potent and provocative bands in modern American metal, The Devil Wears Prada have made a massive leap forward with the stunning “8:18.” The album – executive produced by Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and produced by the band along with producer/engineer Matt Goldman (Underoath, The Chariot) – sees the band driving their relentless sonic approach with more might than ever before, giving extreme power to frontman Mike Hranica’s grim, emotional lyricism (see attached tracklisting).
“DEAD THRONE” made an astonishing chart debut upon its 2011 release, exploding into the #10 position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200. Hailed by Kerrang! as “by far the best album the Ohio outfit have yet produced,” the album confirmed The Devil Wears Prada as one of modern metal’s top acts, a status more than matched by their undisputed reputation as a truly incendiary live force. The band have been indefatigable road warriors since their 2005 foundation, performing countless headline dates, festival sets, and multi-artist tours, including last summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featuring Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and Motörhead.
The Devil Wears Prada is: Mike Hranica – vocals * Chris Rubey – lead guitar * Jeremy DePoyster – rhythm guitar, vocals * Andy Trick – bass * Daniel Williams – drums.

10/20 – The Belasco – Los Angeles, CA
Those warm spring days seem only a few memories ago when Junip unveiled music from their sophomore self-titled release during a brief two-week tour, but we can attest that it left a lasting impression. In case you missed their infectious live set you can check out their in-studio performance at WFUV here, their beautiful session with Pitchfork here or their KCRW session here.
Junip’s live performances and new record have amassed critical acclaim from the media and fans alike. “Line of Fire” introduced the world to new music from the trio from Gothenburg and drummed up expectation for what the rest of the record would deliver; lush waves of glorious warm sound that has become Junip’s signature. As we witness Elias, Tobias and Jose meld into one, we indulge our desires for more music from Junip with “ Your Life, Your Call.”
Listen to “Your Life, Your Call” HERE

Watch the video for “Your Life, Your Call” HERE
magnificent sophomore effort”
-BlackBook Magazine
“psych-folk radiance.”
“A reflective exploration of sound, Junip is bolder in musical and lyrical ventures than the trio's previous work.”
-Interview Magazine
"Junip" is filled with lush, spacey electronic prog folk that should appeal to fans on both sides of today's strum.”

Icon For Hire add Colorado shows!

ICON FOR HIRE have announced the “An Evening With Icon for Hire” tour, which will launch nationwide on September 19 and wrapping October 11. “An Evening With Icon For Hire” will feature a night of music, fashion and entertainment with a pre-concert acoustic performance, an intimate Q&A with the group, a fashion show from Swedish-born frontwoman and fashion designer ARIEL (R-E-L)’s Custom Catastrophes line wrapping up with a full concert of fan favorites and new songs from the group’s forthcoming LP due out this fall.

Say Anything 'Rarities & More' Tour coming Monday to Denver!



Equal Vision Records is proud to announce the Say Anything Rarities and More Tour.

Say Anything will headline the six week tour, with support from EisleyHRVRDNorthern Faces ( June 6 - June 22) and I the Mighty (June 23 - July 12). The lineup, which exclusively features Equal Vision Records’ artists, will kick off the tour on June 6 in Dallas, TX.

Say Anything released their highly anticipated, three-disc collection of remastered B-sides and rarities: All My Friends Are Enemies: Early Rarities, earlier this year on January 22. Before there was …Is A Real BoyIn Defense of the GenreSay Anything, and their latest full-length album - Anarchy, My Dear, there was Baseball, Menorah/Majora, and Junior Varsity. These early recordings were the start of Say Anything’s prolific, decade-plus long career, during which they’ve toured the world and sold nearly 500,000 albums.

The upcoming summer tour will showcase many of the rarities songs, including some that have never been performed live before, as well as select fan favorites off of each of the band’s studio releases.

Eisley will perform as direct support to Say Anything and will be touring in support of Currents, their forthcoming full-length album that will be out May 28. The album was self-recorded and self-produced in their home studio in Tyler, TX - the band’s first time recording completely independently - and sees Eisley’s signature tapestry of rich harmonies, delicately woven over the band’s most intricate instrumentations yet. Currents is the band’s follow-up to their Equal Vision debut The Valley, released in 2011 and a five track EP, Deep Space, released in 2012.

HRVRD, fresh off of the release of their sophomore full-length album From The Bird’s Cage, will precede Eisley on the tour. The band has received rave reviews of their new album, impressively performed four times in two days at SXSW 2013, and has toured nearly non-stop in the past year, sharing stages with the likes of The Dear Hunter, Fun., Russian Circles, letlive. and more, along the way.

Splitting the opening slot on the tour will be Equal Vision newcomers Northern Faces, who just released their debut EP Southern Places on March 5, and San Francisco’s I the Mighty who is set to release a new full-length record this summer. Northern Faces will perform on the first half of the tour from June 6 to June 22, and I the Mighty will perform from June 23 to July 12. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Thursday, April 11 at 12PM local time. Ducat King presale tickets are available today (12PM local time) at sayanything.ducatking.comTour dates can be found below.

Ones To Watch Presents: Atlas Genius at Summit Music Hall

SUMMIT MUSIC HALL at Sunday, October 20th
Live Nation & Soda Jerk present Atlas Genius at Summit Music Hall on Sunday, October 20.
Special guests Family of the Year & The Colourist will open the show.  Showtime is 8:00 PM. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
The first song that Adelaide, Australia’s Atlas Genius finished was a song called “Trojans,” which they wrote, recorded and produced in collaboration with their friend, keyboardist Darren Sell. Quickly named an iTunes Single of the Week in Australia and New Zealand, “Trojans” reached #4 on Hype Machine by the end of May. In September, “Trojans” was placed into heavy rotation, where it maintained a top-five position on the listener-generated Alt-18 countdown and peaked at number one for 4 consecutive weeks in January 2012. “Trojans” began selling over a thousand tracks per week on U.S. iTunes and soon climbed to 45,000 sales - all with zero promotional efforts from the still-unsigned Atlas Genius.
The band’s first release from their new label home, the EP Through The Glass (produced, engineered and mixed by the band), came out in June of 2012. With Through The Glass completed, Atlas Genius then holed up in its studio and worked on writing and recording its first full-length album, while at the same time rehearsing for their first ever tour. The tour started in August 2012 and led to three more tours back to back taking them thru to the end of the year.  Thus, their full-length debut was finished up between tour dates and got completed just before Christmas 2012. When It Was Now was released in the US on February 19th, 2013, with an international release to follow soon after.  
The debut captures Atlas Genius’s singular combination of sophisticated musicality and warm, wistful spirit. Infused with a classic sensibility, each of the songs would fit seamlessly if somehow slipped into a long-treasured mixtape. On the shimmering “Symptoms,” for instance, taut keyboard riffs mesh with urgent acoustic strumming before the band bursts into a gently frenetic, guitar-drenched chorus. Meanwhile, “Back Seat” blends its pulsing bass throb with a sweetly infectious beat and tender vocals that alternately soar and sigh. And on “Trojans,” Atlas Genius begins with a restrained guitar melody and vocal (“Take it off, take it in/Take off all the thoughts of what we’ve been”) before giving way to the handclap-accented, harmony-soaked refrain and lush yet kinetic bridge.
at the Summit Music Hall box office, online at and all Ticketmaster outlets.
Tickets are $20.00 plus applicable service charges. 
The Summit Music Hall is located at 1902 Blake Street in LoDo.

This show is ALL AGES. posted: June 20, 2013

Plain White T's Live in Colorado!





L to R: De’Mar Hamilton, Tim Lopez, Mike Retondo, Dave Tirio, Tom Higgenson (photo credit: James Minchin)
June 6, 2013 - (Burbank, CA) – Two-time Grammy nominated pop-rock quintet Plain White T’s have announced a string of U.S. summer tour dates in support of their new single and EP, Should’ve Gone To Bed.  The shows kick off June 22 at the Lincoln Park Zoo in their hometown of Chicago (itinerary below).
"Should’ve Gone To Bed," which the T's recently performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, was written by vocalist/guitarist Tom Higgenson and produced by Tim Pagnotta (Neon Trees). The song recounts what a treacherous and retrospectively humiliating combination too many drinks, a smartphone and an empty bed can be in the aftermath of “striking out again.” Against his better judgment, the song’s narrator dials his ex’s number. “Here I go missing you again,” Higgenson sings ruefully. “God only knows what I said/I should’ve just gone to bed.”
Fans can go to Friday, June 7 for the online exclusive premiere of the official “Should’ve Gone To Bed” video directed by Mike Venezia (“1,2,3,4” and “Rhythm of Love”). And tune in to VH1’s Top 20 Countdown Saturday, June 8 for the broadcast premiere. The band’s previously released meme themed lyric video for the track can be seen here
The EP also features “Haven’t Told Her," written by vocalist/guitarist Tim Lopez and produced by Pagnotta, as well the Higgenson-penned "Helium," which was recorded with Ian Kirkpatrick, producer of the band's 2010 release, Wonders of the Younger. The disc also features Lopez’s metaphorical ballad “Giving Tree” (produced by the renowned Joe Chiccarelli, with additional production by Mudrock) about a dysfunctional give-and-take relationship (he gives and she takes). Lopez applied the premise of Shel Silverstein’s children’s book of the same title, which he remembers being read to him during his formative years. “If all you wanted was love/Why would you use me up/Cut me down, build a boat and sail away?” he sings with palpable feeling. “When all I wanted to be/Was your giving tree/Settle down, build a home and make you happy.” 
In a review of the EP, the New Times wrote, "…the sentimental pop-punk rockers have proved that their intimate, infectious tunes have real staying power.“
Truer words have never been spoken. Over the course of the past few years, Plain White T's have sold over nine million tracks, garnered two Grammy nominations and wrote and recorded three number one radio hits: "Hey There Delilah," "1, 2, 3, 4" and "Rhythm of Love."
The band--rounded out by drummer De’Mar Hamilton, bassist Mike Retondo and rhythm guitarist Dave Tirio--is currently working on a full-length follow-up to Wonders of the Younger. The album is scheduled for a fall 2013 release.
Don't miss your chance to catch Plain White T's live. Visit for ticketing information.

Yellowcard: Ocean Avenue The Tour hits Denver September 29th, 2013!

We are very excited to announce that one of our favorite bands will be back this fall playing one of our favorite albums ever!

YELLOWCARD brings their Ocean Avenue tour to Summit Music Hall live on Sunday, September 29th with special guest Geoff Rickley of Thursday.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 7 at 10am and for a limited time, through Monday, June 10 - you can get a ticket for just $20 and no service fee! Tickets will be available at our box office located at the Summit Music Hall and online at

A message from the band:

So much news to share. On July 22nd, 2003 our lives were changed forever. We didn’t know that day what Ocean Avenue would become, but it is a chapter in our story that we will never forget. We knew that for the 10th anniversary of the release we wanted to do something more than just a tour.

Over the last few months we have been re-imagining all 13 songs in an acoustic setting. The release will be called simply, “Ocean Avenue Acoustic”. Some of the songs have a whole new life, while others are acoustic renditions of the originals. We are so excited for you to hear what we’ve done. The record will be released worldwide August 13th on Hopeless Records.

Following the release we have some amazing touring planned. We will be bringing Ocean Avenue Acoustic, the Tour to the US, Europe, and Australia. In the US and Australia we will be performing the entire record acoustically from start to finish, and then closing the show with an electric set that covers the other albums. In Europe we will be playing the Vans Warped Tour, so the headlining shows will just be Ocean Avenue Acoustic. To hear the other records you’ll have to get to the closest Warped date!

It’s going to be a big year for all of us and you together. Ocean Avenue is a legacy that we are very proud of, so both the album and the tour are things we’ve put a lot of work into. Thanks for your continued love and support, and we will see you this Fall! posted: June 3, 2013

Killswitch Engage 6/20 Show Update


Killswitch Engage are about to embark on their first headline tour of North America in support of their just-released new album Disarm the Descent.

With As I Lay Dying unable to participate, Killswitch Engage will now be joined on the tour by Miss May I, Darkest Hour, The Word Alive and Affiance.

To our fans,

In light of recent events, As I Lay Dying will unfortunately not be taking part in the upcoming tour with Killswitch Engage. Given the circumstances, we feel that it is best for the band to be off the road while the current situation gets sorted. We’d like to thank all of our fans for their ongoing support at this difficult time.

Havok to release new album!


HAVOK’s Unnatural Selection Set For Release

Candlelight Records confirms June 25 as the North American release date for Unnatural Selection, the new studio recording from Denver thrashers HAVOK. The ten-song album was produced by David Sanchez with mixing handled by Terry Date (Pantera, Overkill, Deftones). Unnatural Selection features original artwork from Polish illustrator Rafal Wechterowicz (Slayer, Mastodon) and was mastered by James Murphy (Aborted, World Under Blood, Abigail Williams).

“Give Me Liberty… Or Give Me Death,” the first single from Unnatural Selection, will hit Loud Rock/Metal radio on May 27. The topical song is a furious and urgent anthem that displays the band’s classic thrash and old school metal sound. Vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez ignites the fret board and barks the righteous lyrics while drummer Pete Webber punishes his immense kit. The song’s towering sound benefits from the unique acoustics of the old theater that was utilized as one of the many recording locations for the album. “I am super pumped on how the drums came out,” chimes Webber. “We recorded the drums in a theater to get a huge sound. It was a challenging experience for me between time constraints and the drum parts having much more feeling in them. I believe the added pressure made for some really awesome stuff. I can’t wait to unleash this album to the world.”

Unnatural Selection bears a far more mature collection of songs when compared to Burn (2009), and Time Is Up (2011). HAVOK has truly hit their mark with a sound that will please fans new and old. Additional album standouts include album opener “I Am The State,” “Chasing The Edge,” and the band’s rendition of the Black Sabbath classic “Children of the Grave.”


Unnatural Selection Track Listing:
1. I Am The State
2. Give Me Liberty… Or Give Me Death
3. It Is True
4. Under the Gun
5. Waste of Life
6. Untitled
7. Chasing the Edge
8. Worse Than War
9. Children of the Grave
10. Unnatural Selection

HAVOK will premiere material from Unnatural Selection tomorrow when they take the stage for the start of their European tour with Suffocation and Cephalic Carnage. The 28-city tour begins in Genève, Switzerland and will conclude in Munchen, Germany on June 8. Before departing for Europe, the band performed at a Denver Benefit. Sanchez comments, “We were honored to be part of HaneyStock. The show was a benefit for Chris Haney who was a bartender at the Gothic Theatre in our hometown who was senselessly murdered trying to break up a fight. All proceeds from the show are going to his young daughter. It was a great event that celebrated the life of an outstanding individual.”

HAVOK has planned three special record release performances. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at venue box offices and companion ticket agencies. A copy of Unnatural Selection will be included with ticket purchase to these area performances. HAVOK is planning a full North American tour for early summer. Details will be announced shortly. For a full list of dates on their European tour visit the band’s official Facebook page HERE.

6/21/2013 Marquis Theatre – Denver, CO
6/22/2013 Black Sheep – Colorado Springs, CO
6/23/2013 Aggie Theater – Ft. Collins, CO

HAVOK, called “the finest thrash band in existence” by PopDose, released their full-length debut, Burn, mid-2009. The record found an immediate fan base and the curiosity of media around the globe. Time Is Up would follow in 2011. “HAVOK have hit their stride,” said Decibel Magazine in review of the album. “HAVOK is everything that is great about thrash,” added Terrorizer. In 2012, the band released their EP Point of No Return; videos for the EPs two original songs were released earlier this year. To view “Point of No Return” click HERE. To view “From the Cradle to the Grave” click HERE. The videos have had over 200,000 views to date. Metal Underground says, “HAVOK kicks your ass from the moment you hit play, and doesn’t ever let up.”

HAVOK is guitarist/vocalist Dave Sanchez, bassist Mike Leon, guitarist Reece Scruggs, and drummer Pete Webber. The band uses/endorses ESP Guitars, Charvel Guitars, EMG Pickups, Ernie Ball, Peavy Amplification, Pearl Drums, Trick Drums, and Sabian Cymbals.

DWNTWN added to Capital Cities tour!

DWNTWN embarks on two week tour with Capital Cities and Gold Fields.

"The band is setting off what should be a big year for them...Light on the ears, ignorant to miss" - EARMILK

L.A. based synth pop trio, DWNTWN has just been added to the second half of the Capital Cities tour, Dancing With Strangers. They pick up the tour with Gold Fields in Colorado Springs on May 21 and finish in Los Angeles with two sold out shows at the El Rey Theatre, June 6 and June 7.
This two week US run comes on the heels of DWNTWN's Los Angeles residency at Central SAPC in April.
DWNTWN's new collaboration with Jhameel and Giraffage, "Move Me" (which PITCHFORK calls a "sparkling electro-pop single") reached #3 on Hype Machine and was also selected for the recently released Kitsuné America 2 compilation. This is the second time DWNTWN has been featured on one of Kitsuné's trendsetting compilations. Their song "See My Eyes" was chosen last year for the first Kitsuné America release and this song too reached #3 on Hype Machine.
The band's four song EP, The Red Room, is available now and includes fan favorites "See My Eyes" and "Stood Me Up".

DWNTWN will appear with Capital Cities at the Black Sheep on 5/21, and also the Aggie Theater on 5/23. posted: May 16, 2013

Melvins Announce 30th Anniversary Tour!

Sludgy alt-rock legends the Melvins have just announced a string of North American dates to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary.

The Melvins are one of the hardest working bands on the planet. Touring constantly, the Melvins recently achieved a world record by performing in all 50 states plus a show in Washington D.C. during a 51-day period. The world record tour must have been a draining experience for the band, but like true road warriors, the Melvins are hitting the road once again for a summer North American tour, taking rock band Honky with them for the ride.

“Has it really only been 30 years?” asks singer / guitarist Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!”

The Melvins are set to release the covers album ‘Everybody Loves Sausages’ on April 30. Spin is currently streaming the album, which features covers of classic tracks by Queen, Venom, the Kinks and many more.

Check out the Melvins’ full list of North American tour dates below!

Anberlin Acoustic Tour hits CO Springs and Fort Collins


Anberlin took the time to announce that they will be headlining a quick three week summer acoustic tour with Campfire OK and Stars In Stereo beginning in June. They will hit the Black Sheep in Co Springs on June 26 and Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins on June 27. Tickets on sale Friday via

As far as setlists go, there is plenty of material for the band to rework for an acoustic performance, especially with the inclusion of their latest 2012 album, Vital. For those who don’t remember, the Florida based rock group completed a similar tour this past summer and it seems as if they’d like to repeat that this year, but to a new audience out west. The tour dates can be seen following the jump.

Two Shows Announce with LOGIC!


Visionary Music Group Tour
w/ Skizzy Mars

Saturday, May 25th
Tuesday, June 11th

Skizzy Mars will open the show.  Showtime is 9:00 PM. Doors open at 8:00 PM.
Beginning in his home state of Maryland, upcoming star Logic (born Robert Bryson Hall II) has been crushing the rap scene since he was 17 years old. Logic cites the Wu Tang Clan as his influence in the early days.
Growing up without a father figure in his life, Logic left home and has been flying solo ever since. A compulsive perfectionist, Logic is “…always in the studio recording and mixing,” and doesn’t frequently “party and hang out, play video games and go on vacation.” Above anything, the results show in his lyrics. He is the most dedicated rapper in the game, hands down.
To this date, Logic has dropped three mixtapes, entitled Young, Broke & Infamous, Young Sinatra and Young Sinatra: Undeniable. His ‘The All I Do’ video was the first for Logic to hit over one million views. On March 15, 2012 Billboard declared Logic as the Next Big Sound, meaning he was the fastest accelerating artist across the internet gaining fans. On March 20, 2012 Logic officially signed with Visionary Music Group. Logic completed his first national headlining tour, the Visionary Music Group Tour, along with Tayyib Ali. The tour sold out 20 of its 25 stops. Logic just completed a highly successful first European tour (March 2013), which included stops in Amsterdam, Belgium, Switzerland, and London. His fourth mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever, is slated for a spring 2013 release.

Killswitch Engage Announce Headlining Tour!



(New York, NY):  Grammy-nominated, Massachusetts-based hard rockers Killswitch Engage –singer Jesse Leach, guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, bassist Mike D'Antonio, guitarist Joel Stroetzel and drummer Justin Foley- have announced their first headline tour in support of their just-released new album Disarm the Descent, which enjoyed an astounding first week in stores, debuting at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 and at #1 on both the Rock Albums Chart and the Hard Music Chart.

Joining Killswitch Engage on this tour will be their longtime friends from San Diego in As I Lay Dying. Ohio will also be well-represented on this tour, with Miss May I and Affiance rounding out the bill.

Tickets go on sale on April 12 or April 13, depending on the market.
"Everyone in the Killswitch family is excited to get out on our first U.S. headlining tour in support of our new record," Leach said. "We are hitting some great cities and have a great mix of songs from every era of Killswitch as well as of course a handful of new ones."

Leach continued, "We look forward to sharing this tour with our old friends and brothers in metal As I Lay Dying. I personally have never had the chance to tour with them and I am looking forward to having such a quality band out with us to give this tour even more fire! We will also be joined by a talented and up-and-coming band Miss May I and a new band we're all excited to see live called Affiance. Thanks to all the U.S. fans for your support! Our live show will be full-on energy with all of us ready to take this to a whole new level." 
Bassist Mike D. concurred, saying, "We are super excited to be back out with our good buds in As I Lay Dying! They are some of our favorite dudes to hang with on the road, so assumptions are high that utter chaos shall ensue. There will be so much metal riffage -- you could build your own Carnival Cruse Ship. That's right, 'CHUGGA CHUGGA Paralysis' is surely imminent."

With that kind of enthusiasm and excitement, you'd be ill-advised to miss this tour!

"Their fastest and fiercest yet," proclaimed Billboard. 

Everyone from National Geographic to ex-NFL'er and reality star Chad Ochocinco has been talking about the band. The former mentioned the band in a piece about the physics of moshpits, where a fan stated that KsE always incite the best pits at shows, while the latter tweeted that it was his workout record for the day.

In other KsE chart news, the band achieved several milestones. The album enjoyed career high, Top 10 and Top 20 chart debuts in several countries, such as Australia (#6); Germany (#12); the U.K. (#15); Austria (#15); Japan (#16); New Zealand (#17); and Finland (#8).

Marianas Trench Tour Stops in Denver!


Santa Monica, California, April 10, 2013 - As they embark on the  second leg of their sold-out FACE THE MUSIC arena tour of Canada; Vancouver-based Marianas Trench have announced their signing to Cherrytree Records as their new label home for all countries outside of Canada. In Canada, the band will remain on 604 Records.  Marianas Trench will release their four-song U.S. debut Face The Music EP May 14th on Cherrytree/604 Records/Interscope Records and will headline The Noise Tour Powered By Journeys which kicks off May 16th at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, WA (see below for tour dates).

The Face The Music EP will feature four songs including "Desperate Measures"  and “Haven’t Had Enough”, both of which are featured on Marianas Trench’s third full length Canadian release Ever After. "Their music is simultaneously sophisticated and accessible, classic and topical, multi-layered and urgent. It's a real privilege for us to have Marianas Trench join the Cherrytree roster."

604 President Jonathan Simkin commented, "604 is thrilled to have this opportunity to work with a label that has such a great track record of success with artists that are quirky and a bit left of center. We are looking forward to working with Martin and the whole Cherrytree team." 

Lead Singer/primary songwriter of Marianas Trench Josh Ramsay remarked, "The whole band is stoked to have such an amazing team behind us, and very proud to be part of the Cherrytree family. We look forward to bringing our music to fans all over the world". 

Marianas Trench was formed in Vancouver, BC by triple-threat lead singer/songwriter/producer Josh Ramsay who received a Grammy nomination in 2012 for his production and co-writing of Carly Rae Jepsen's pop gem break-through "Call Me Maybe." Marianas Trench has released three full length albums in Canada with the last two – Ever After and Masterpiece Theatre – being certified platinum in their home country.   Numerous singles from both have surpassed platinum status in Canada.  In March 2013 the band kicked off their Face The Music: With A Vengeance tour of Canada and accepted the Fan Choice award at the Canadian Radio Music Awards.

The current leg of the Face The Music tour will conclude with the band’s appearance on the Juno Awards, where Marianas Trench is nominated for three Junos. Ramsay has an additional solo Juno nomination for his production work on “Call Me Maybe” and other recordings. Marianas Trench will be headlining The Noise Tour Powered By Journeys throughout the U.S. in May and June. 

Below is a list of initial dates for The Noise Tour Powered By Journeys featuring Marianas Trench. All tickets go on sale April 12th. More dates to be announced soon.

Big News From Soda Jerk & EXDO!

It takes two to make a thing go right!
Soda Jerk Presents and EXDO Event Center are together at last. Soda Jerk brings its wealth of concert production experience to EXDO to create Denver’s next great concert venue … right in the heart of the River North (RiNo) Arts District, Denver’s hottest emerging neighborhood.
Building upon its already successful array of shows currently taking place at The Summit Music Hall and the Marquis Theatre, Soda Jerk has partnered with EXDO whose production expertise, premier sound and light system and versatile event space has played host to the likes of Kanye West, Jamie Foxx and Matisyahu. From Rap to Rock, Soda Jerk and EXDO will bring the most popular national musical acts to a new stage for Denver area concert goers.
“I’m really excited about working with EXDO on some of our larger shows.   It’s a great facility, the staff is amazing and I love the location.  I think this venue is going to provide a really great experience for the fans and how they get to see their favorite bands” says Soda Jerk Founder Mike Barsch. EXDO Event Center’s Managing Partner Andrew Feinstein is equally enthusiastic, stating: “We’re thrilled to partner up with Soda Jerk on a series of concerts at EXDO Event Center. Not only will these concerts bring a different element and diverse crowd to our ever-growing events calendar, but these shows will be a catalyst in cementing EXDO and the RiNo neighborhood as the arts and entertainment epicenter of Northeast Denver.”
Soda Jerk and EXDO are pleased to reveal the first two collaborative concerts slated for this summer. Due to popular demand, the Tuesday, June 4th show with Alkaline Trio and special guests Bayside, Off With Their Heads, and Erin Cookman will move from Summit Music Hall to EXDO. Additionally, reggae-rock artists, Dirty Heads have added a string of summer dates with support from The Expendables and Big B. They will grace the EXDO stage on Friday, July 12th, 2013. Tickets for this event go on sale Friday, April 19th at 10:00am via Ticketweb.
Soda Jerk Presents (SJP) began producing concerts in 1997 and has since become the largest independent live music promoter in Colorado.  Starting out in a small office in Boulder, Colorado by Soda Jerk founder Mike Barsch, the company has seen continued growth over the last 17 years.   The company has gone from booking and producing concerts in a wide array of non-owned venues, to owning and operating three of Colorado’s most popular live music clubs:  The Summit Music Hall and Marquis Theatre in Denver and in The Black Sheep in Colorado Springs.   In 2011, Soda Jerk Presents added veteran concert promoter Peter Ore to its team creating a powerful union of two of Colorado’s most independently minded promoters with one goal in mind:  to build a full service independent promotions company based on integrity, hard work and passion for live music.  Soda Jerk Presents now produces over 600 shows a year and continues to grow in an ever-changing and hyper-competitive market.   
EXDO Event Center is a full-service event space located in the heart of Denver’s vibrant River North (RiNo) Arts district, just minutes from Coors Field. Inside a magnificent and flexible 22,000 sq. ft. area, EXDO produces individually tailored, all-inclusive and memorable events of all types, including corporate parties, fundraisers, fashion shows, trade shows, concerts, weddings and sporting events.
Housed in the historic Goldberg Brothers building – which was the leading manufacturer of film reels products during the Golden Age of Hollywood – EXDO is outfitted with state of the art light, audio and visual technology. Moreover, EXDO’s team of event-production specialists is equipped to handle any and every client need, from catering and graphic design, to set construction and audio/video services. Whether an event is meant to enthrall, entertain, engross or inspire, EXDO is passionate about producing unforgettable events for its clients with seamless execution. At EXDO, we’ve got you covered.

Andrew McMahon (of Something Corporate & Jack's Mannequin)

Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate Frontman to Release Debut EP in Spring 2013
Los Angeles, CA (January 22, 2013) – Andrew McMahon, former frontman and creator of both Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate,  has announced dates for his upcoming solo tour.  This will be his first tour under his own name, where he will perform live with his band comprised of 6 musicians in total including former band-mates Jay McMillan and Mike Wagner.  The tour is set to kick off Tuesday, March 12th in Tucson, AZ and will run through April 21st in Atlanta, GA.  McMahon is also set to tour with multi-Grammy nominated group fun. starting January 23rd in St. Paul, MN (dates below).  Fans can expect to hear McMahon perform songs from both Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin catalogues, as well as new material from his upcoming EP set for release in the spring of this year.  Tickets for the Andrew McMahon solo tour go on sale Friday, January 25th at 10am in most markets.  Tickets for Andrew’s tour with fun. are currently on sale.  For further tour information, please visit
“Really excited to get back on the road and try out some new music for the fans,” said McMahon.  “Playing songs from all aspects of my career is not something I've done before, so can't wait to start!”
Long time resident of southern California, Andrew McMahon is best known as lead vocalist, pianist and primary songwriter for bands Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin.  Andrew’s blend of vocal and songwriting skills combined with the incorporation of his piano playing, led punk-pop quintet Something Corporate to their first major record label singing under MCA Records, who released the band’s critically acclaimed album Leaving Through the Window in 2002.  Shortly thereafter, the band found success on the road with main stage gigs on the Warped Tour and tours overseas.  In the summer of 2004, Something Corporate decided to take a break, at which point McMahon found himself writing a batch of confessional piano-driven songs that explored his return home to Orange County and the dissolution of a long term relationship. With the help of several musician friends (which included producer Jim Wirt and Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee), McMahon began recording Everything in Transit under the moniker Jack’s Mannequin which released in August of 2005 under Warner Brothers’ Maverick Records.  McMahon went on to release another studio album with Jack's Mannequin titled The Glass Passenger, under which he toured with the likes of The Fray and Weezer.  People and Things was the final release from Jack’s Mannequin which was released in the fall of 2011 and charted at number 9 on the Billboard album charts.  The band played their two final sold out shows on November 11th and 12th 2012 at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles.  In July 2006, McMahon founded a non-profit charity, entitled “The Dear Jack Foundation” to raise funds for cancer research. The organization is dedicated to raising money and awareness to aid in the fight against young adult cancer.  McMahon released a documentary titled "Dear Jack" in November of 2009 which chronicled his own battle with leukemia, his treatment and recovery.  For more on Andrew McMahon please visit:

The MOON ROOM, located inside the Summit Music Hall, will focus on local bands and artists from Colorado as well as a wide range of national talent to be featured regularly. The recent addition will serve as a quality setting for musicians to be showcased and will offer the opportunity for artists to grow into larger venues as their fan base develops.   
Soda Jerk’s desire to provide a professional performance space in a booming downtown Denver location has been achieved through the installation of an exceptional sound system, high-quality lighting rig, and brand new stage.  The layout of the venue ensures an unbeatable source for intimate concerts and guarantees a memorable show experience for both performer and spectators alike.  
The MOON ROOM will regularly offer drink and food specials to be paired with inexpensive (and often free!) concert tickets, making live music accessible and affordable for all to embrace. Based on the overwhelming success of Marquis Pizza on Larimer Street, the MOON ROOM also incorporates the first dine-in Marquis Pizza experience where patrons can enjoy live music and a wide array of beverage options nightly. 
“Artist development has always been a passion of mine, and adding this venue to our roster is going to be great for a lot of newer artists,” explains Soda Jerk Presents owner and talent buyer, Mike Barsch. “My goal with the MOON ROOM is to offer something different in the city.  I want to create a place where people can see great up and coming bands inexpensively and still ensure the bands are well compensated. On any given night, local shows in the room will be very inexpensive or even free.  The drinks will be cheap and the food will be cheap.  No one in the city does it the way we’re going to do it.  It’s the perfect model.  The bands and fans will love it!  We can’t wait to kick this off.”

Guitar Legend Yngwie Malmsteen adds Denver to tour stops

We are extremely excited to announce a show on Tuesday, May 7th with virtuoso guitar legend, Yngwie Malmsteen at Summit Music Hall! Tickets on sale Friday, March 1st via


Yngwie Malmsteen was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on June 30, 1963. The youngest child in a household that included his mother Rigmor, sister Ann Louise, and brother Bjorn, Yngwie originally had no interest in music. However, on September 18, 1970, Yngwie saw a TV special on the death of guitar iconoclast Jimi Hendrix. Seven-year-old Yngwie watched with awe as Hendrix blasted the audience with torrents of feedback and sacrificed his guitar in flames. The day Jimi Hendrix died, the guitar-playing Yngwie was born.
Applying his intense curiosity and tenacity to first an old Mosrite and then a cheap Stratocaster, Yngwie immersed himself in the music of such bands as Deep Purple and spent long hours practicing to learn their songs. His admiration for Ritchie Blackmore's classically influenced playing led him back to the source: Bach, Vivaldi, Beethoven, and Mozart. As Yngwie absorbed the classical structures of the masters, his prodigious style began to take shape. By age 10, he began to focus all his energies into music. His mother and sister, a talented flautist, recognized his unique musical gifts and gave him support and encouragement. His mastery of the instrument progressed rapidly. In his early teens, Yngwie saw a television performance of Russian violinist Gideon Kremer, who performed the highly difficult 24 Caprices of 19th century virtuoso violinist Niccolo Paganini. The effect was profound, and Yngwie understood at last how to combine his love of classical music with his burgeoning guitar skills and onstage charisma.
By age 15, Yngwie's trademark style had begun to emerge. He worked for a time as a luthier in a guitar repair shop, where he encountered a scalloped neck for the first time when a 17th century lute came into the shop. Intrigued, Yngwie scalloped the neck of an old guitar in similar fashion and was impressed enough with the results to try it on his better guitars. The scalloped fret board was somewhat more difficult to play than a normal neck, but his control over the strings was so improved that Yngwie immediately adopted it as a permanent alteration to his equipment.
About this time, Yngwie began playing in a number of bands built around his explosive guitar style, with long instrumental explorations. Around age 18, Yngwie and several friends recorded a demo set of three songs for Swedish CBS, but the cuts were never released. Frustrated, Yngwie began sending demo tapes to record companies and music contacts abroad. One such tape found its way into the hands of Guitar Player contributor and Shrapnel Music. Yngwie was invited to record with a new band Steeler--and the rest, as they say, is history.
From Steeler, Yngwie moved on to Alcatrazz, a Rainbow-style band, but it became clear that to fully develop his talents, Yngwie would have to go solo. Yngwie's first solo album, Rising Force (now considered the bible for neoclassical rock) made it to #60 on the Billboard charts, an impressive feat for a mostly instrumental guitar album with no commercial airplay. The album also gained Yngwie a Grammy nomination for best rock instrumental performance. He was voted Best New Talent in several readers’ polls, Best Rock Guitarist the year after, and Rising Force became Album of the Year. Rising Force blazed a trail on the concert circuit that established Yngwie as one of rock guitar's brightest new stars and added a new genre to the music lexicon: neoclassical rock.
With his place in guitar history firmly established, Yngwie's neo-classical compositions fueled the ears of fans and the ambitions of aspiring guitarists worldwide for over a decade with such powerhouse classic albums as Marching Out, Trilogy, Odyssey, Live in Leningrad / Trial By Fire (gold-selling concert video of Yngwie’s 1989 sold-out concerts in Moscow and Leningrad), Fire & Ice (which debuted in Japan at #1 and sold over 100,000 copies on the day of its release), The Seventh Sign, Magnum Opus, Inspiration (covering the music of Deep Purple, Rainbow, U.K., Kansas, Scorpions, Rush, and Jimi Hendrix), Facing the Animal, Alchemy, and Attack!!
In 1997, Yngwie proved that he was much more than a rock phenomenon. After months of intensive work, Yngwie produced his first completely classical work, Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in Eb minor, Op. 1. This groundbreaking album was recorded in Prague with the prestigious Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and famed symphony conductor Yoel Levi. Several years later, in 2001,Yngwie found his first opportunity to perform the critically acclaimed Concerto Suite with the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra in Tokyo. The DVD/CD/VHS package of this groundbreaking performance became Yngwie's first release of the year in January 2002.
In 2003, Yngwie joined the famous "G3" Tour in a lineup many guitar fans saw as the ultimate dream combination (Satriani, Vai, Malmsteen). The CD and DVD of the tour became instant classics and hot sellers throughout the year. Once the G3 tour ended, Yngwie took to the road again in support of his Attack album.
Taking most of 2004 to rest, recharge his creative batteries, and work in his studio at his leisure, Yngwie produced a highly acclaimed new album titled Unleash the Fury. Featuring some of his most impressive playing and songwriting in years, the album garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike., a popular Internet hard rock music review site proclaimed, "Yngwie Malmsteen, the Neo-Classical king is back to Unleash the Fury with another bag of alchemy fuelled compositions... Overall Unleash the Fury is a welcome return to form from ... to deliver the goods." Reviewers on and CD Universe gave the new album 5-star ratings, with consumers proclaiming "Yngwie is the original, don't settle for cheap imitations!" and "it's a great year for shredders!"
In the summer of 2005, the Unleash the Fury World Tour kicked off in Ireland and headed across the globe, blazing new trails of glory. Malmsteen and his Rising Force lineup proved they were back with a vengeance by selling out the famed Hammersmith Apollo theatre in London and playing to rapt capacity crowds across the U.K., and garnering legions of new fans from Paris to Vienna to Madrid. Eager fans in the U.S. made the Unleash the Fury Tour a major event of the year.
By 2006, Yngwie’s career resurgence was in full gear. He attended the annual NAMM music-industry convention to promote his new strings endorsement with Dean Markley, then toured the U.S. a second time, then Asia, Australia, and Finland by the end of the year, igniting fans as never before. Yngwie explained it this way: “Staying in good shape has a tremendous amount to do with it; I'm reaping the benefits this year.”  That year, Fender updated Yngwie Signature Malmsteen Model Strat, making small but important changes to the neck.  “Fender rules the universe. They treat me so good, and I'm so honored and proud to be working with them.” Throughout 2007, Yngwie continued work on his next rock opus, and took a break in December to South America and Mexico, fulfilling the dreams of fans who hadn't seen him in their country in years.
2008 marked Yngwie’s 25th year in the U.S.! Yngwie signed several endorsements, with Austrian acoustics company AKG, makers of top-of-the-line microphones and acoustic equipment, and Boss/Roland.  That same year, Yngwie learned he’d been chosen to be in the exclusive NAMM Oral History program. Begun in 2000, NAMM's Oral History Project documents through videotaped interviews some of the greatest contributors to the music products industry, including Herbie Hancock, Maynard Ferguson, Les Paul, blues legend B.B. King, and now, Yngwie Malmsteen.
Yngwie’s redesigned official website,, went online, along with his own merchandise site. Yngwie continued to work at a leisurely pace on his next album. Work also continued on Fender’s Malmsteen limited edition replica of the “Duck,” Yngwie’s prized and famed 1972 Strat. Fender Custom Shop experts flew to Miami to measure and photograph every aspect of the original instrument to ensure the replica’s authenticity down to the last detail.  With a new lineup that included ex-Priest singer Tim “Ripper” Owens, Yngwie played concert dates in Germany, doing clinics for Fender, and then hitting the summer festival circuit in Europe, starting with Graspop in Belgium and ending up in Finland, and then on to clinics and concerts in the U.K.
2008 also saw an amazing testament to Yngwie’s resurgence on the rock music scene – he scored the cover of Guitar World’s “Kings of Shred” issue, appearing alone on the cover instead of sharing it with other musicians. About his newfound visibility, Yngwie said, “There are a lot of new, younger fans who are just discovering the joys of playing with speed, power, and articulation and they're coming to my shows and places like NAMM and guitar shows.”  Throughout 2008, Yngwie scored other magazine covers, including All Access, Crusher Magazine, Fuzz, Guitar Player, Roadie Crew, and Vegas Rocks.  But perhaps the biggest recognition of 2008 came in October, when Yngwie was  inducted into Hollywood's Rock Walk of Fame on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.
Also in October, Yngwie released his new studio album, Perpetual Flame, on his own newly established label, Rising Force Records. The album also marked the debut of Yngwie's new singer, ex-Judas Priest front-man Tim "Ripper" Owens. To coincide with the festivities surrounding Yngwie’s first album in several years, the Fender Custom Shop unveiled the new Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Series Stratocaster guitar, the reproduction of Malmsteen’s beloved “Duck” (also called the “Play Loud” guitar). Touring to support the new album began in earnest, with a full schedule of dates starting in the U.S., and the momentum of Perpetual Flame kept rolling right on into the new year.
Early in the 2009, Yngwie contributed three tracks to the video game Rock Band, for both Xbox and PlayStation. Still promoting Perpetual Flame, Yngwie and the band played a series of killer concerts in Japan with rock icons Deep Purple. By mid-summer, Yngwie astonished fans and critics alike by releasing an album completely off the beaten path for him, an entirely instrumental collection of ballads from Yngwie’s earlier works, performed on acoustic guitar with orchestral arrangements. To everyone’s surprise, Angels of Love (inspired by Yngwie’s wife April) hit the top of’s New Age music list.
Recognition of Yngwie’s place in music history continued to come in. In Time Magazine, Yngwie found himself included as one of the “10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players.” Near the end of the year, Yngwie and his management company decided to begin releasing rare archival concert footage. The first was Yngwie in Korea, shot during his 2001 War to End All Wars Tour, in Seoul, South Korea. And that, asserts Yngwie, is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come! posted: February 27, 2013

Following two albums that have topped 100,000 apiece in sales (2009's Constellations and 2007's Messengers), Leveler is on pace to set a new high-bar for AUGUST BURNS RED, adding commercial success to the critical praise the album has garnered from the likes of Alternative Press, Revolver, Rock Sound and dozens of other outlets. The album pushes the band's sonic boundaries in every direction, yet emerges as an unquestionably heavier album than its predecessor. It's a game-changer, for ABR, and for fans of hard rock everywhere. posted: July 10, 2012

The Dirty Heads & Shiny Toy Guns Tour Announcement!

December 12, 2012
New York, NY –So-Cal alt rockers The Dirty Heads and LA electro-rock outfit Shiny Toy Guns have announced their co-headline Tour Odyssey Powered by PureVolume. The North American winter tour will have support from up-and-coming San Francisco alt/pop/rock band Midi Matilda, as well as emerging dance/rock band Oh No Fiasco.  The month-long run kicks off on February 13th in Dallas, TX and wraps up in Co Springs, CO on March 9th.  The bands have partnered with PureVolume, which will provide exclusive content from all bands throughout the tour, ticket and merchandise giveaways, and more. While The Dirty Heads and Shiny Toy Guns both call Five Seven Music their label home, their sounds are quite different, which promises to provide an exciting and eclectic night of music for concertgoers. The Dirty Heads and Shiny Toy Guns recently wrapped up sold out US tours this fall, both to rave reviews. Tickets are on sale Friday, December 14 beginning at 10:00AM EST and can be found via The Dirty Heads’ or Shiny Toy Guns’ websites.
Formed in 2003 out of Huntington Beach, CA, The Dirty Heads combine an intriguing mix of hip-hop, reggae and alternative rock with a sunny California swagger. The band’s most recent release, Cabin By The Sea, which features guests Del the Funky Homosapien, KyMani Marley and Matisyahu was globally released this past summer to rave reviews. Huffington Post said: “Summer 2012 officially has its soundtrack.”
The album is the band’s first debut on Billboard’s Top 20, as well as a peak position at #8 on iTunes overall music chart, #4 on iTunes Alternative chart and #3 on iTunes Independent chart.  The Dirty Heads’ debut album, Any Port In A Storm, released in September of 2008, features the hit track “Lay Me Down,” a song that spent eleven weeks at #1 on the Billboard alternative chart, more than any single that year by any other artist.  It is a certified gold single. Rolling Stone touted the ‘Heads as one of the year’s best new bands and they were among the first bands featured on YouTube's Raw Session. 
Los Angeles electro-rock band Shiny Toy Guns recently released their latest album III, which features the first new material by the original line-up in five years.  Production on III is lush and dramatic, ranging from driving tracks like the first single due January 2013 “Somewhere To Hide,” “Waiting Alone” and “Speaking Japanese” into a sonic pendulum swing to the genre bending current release “Fading Listening.”  The band teamed up with legendary mixer Tony Maserati (Lady GagaBeyonceTaylor Swift, Alicia Keyes) to finalize and sharpen the new 2012 sound of the band.  Unlike any other group out there today, SHINY TOY GUNS music is driving rock and electro spearheaded by a male and female vocal courtesy of Chad Petree and Carah Faye. III was heralded as “impeccable…one of 2012’s best” by Associated Press.

Hatebreed Tour coming to Denver!

HATEBREED is excited to announce the upcoming “10 Years of Perseverance” fall tour, a United States headline tour to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the band’s ground-breaking 2002 major-label debut, Perseverance. The tour features direct support from Whitechapel and special guests All Shall Perish and Deez Nuts, and kicks off on September 13th in Clifton Park, NY. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 8th. In addition, an exclusive pre-sale will begin on Wednesday, June 6th. HATEBREED will also be offering an exclusive VIP Diehard Package that includes a Meet and Greet, Commemorative Diehard Laminate, Poster and more! Make sure to head over to for all ticketing and VIP Diehard details. Perseverance is recognized worldwide as a landmark album in HATEBREED’s musical catalog—an album that skyrocketed the band to immediate leader-of-the-pack status after its release. Released on March 26, 2002, the band’s second full-length studio album blasted open the doors of American DIY Hardcore in mainstream culture with songs such as ‘I Will Be Heard’, ‘A Call For Blood’ and the album's title track, ‘Perseverance’. Since the release of Perseverance, the fusion of hardcore and metal has been emulated and evolved relentlessly, but never duplicated with the same originality and brutality that HATEBREED accomplished with their first major-label release. Perseverance debuted within the top 50 of the Billboard Top 200 chart and has since gone on to sell roughly half a million copies worldwide.

The band just reported that they have finished the drum tracks. When asked about the recording process, drummer Matt Byrne said, “I got the biggest and best drum tone ever for this new album and Zeuss really helped me dial in the sound. Having 25+ days of pre-production really helped make this an efficient and fun recording session.” For more information about the upcoming album, tours, and additional news regarding HATEBREED, please visit these websites: posted: June 6, 2012

GWAR finally reveal new guitarist! See them Halloween night at Summit Music Hall!

MEDIA ALERT                                                                                          
October 1, 2012 
For Immediate Release
Contact: Jon Freeman
Freeman Promotions
GWAR'S New Guitarist, PUSTULUS MAXIMUS, is Finally Revealed

It was a little less than a year ago that the world was rocked by the passing of Flattus Maximus, back to the cosmos from whence he came. And since that day fans of GWAR have wondered how the mighty overlords ofGWAR would deal with the void it left within the band. GWARresponded the only way they knew how-by soldiering on-and continued to play as a four-piece. But from the very beginning of that phase, the quest began to find the new Scumdog that was in every way as magnificent as his predecessor. Today the members of GWAR are pleased to inform their legions of followers, and even more so their many enemies, that once again the band is whole, with the proclamation that long-lost cousin of Flattus, Pustulus Maximus, has officially joined the band in the position of lead guitarist, and will join with the group on their upcoming "Fate or Chaos" tour.

Pustulus offered his first words to the press with the following, "At this point I have nothing to say to the press, even though I am talking to you. I will let my guitar speak for itself. But let me add that I am blood-sworn to honor the legacy of the great Flattus and indeed the whole Maximus tribe. I didn't come here to fuck around. HAIL FLATTUS!"

But how did all of this come to pass? It was easy to get a quote fromGWAR lead singer, Oderus Urungus:

"Naturally we were devastated by the passing of Flattus. But we turned that grief into rage and set about the task of finding a new guitar player. The first thing we did was sound the mighty Horn of Hate, and alert all Scumdogs, scattered across the galaxy as they are, as to what had occurred. What people didn't know about Flattus was that was is part of a huge tribe of brutish warriors, The Maximus Clan. They are at the core of any Scumdog Legion worth its blood! Planet Maximus is just crawling with them!"

Oderus farted, blowing a hole in the wall, and continued. "Many of the tribe had fought and even played in bands with Flattus, and we began to get messages from across the stars. The Scumdogs were coming! Coming to Earth to lay tracks on our new album, and pay tribute to the mighty Flattus. Soon the War-Barges of Maximus tribe members began to appear in Earth's orbit...and land outside our great temple! Bubonis, Infectitcus, Fartacus, and many more-all have participated in the creation of the songs that shall be on our new album, which will be out sometime next year.  But it was not until the hulking form of Pustulus appeared at the studio door, bloody guitar in hand, that we knew we had our new member. Here was a being that was supposedly born with a guitar in his fist, which of course resulted in the death of his beloved mother, whose body he immediately devoured. If anyone can replace our beloved comrade, it is this foul creature. Because he can fucking shred."

Little else is known about this being, other than that he has a skin condition where his face and feet are covered in painful pustules that can only be soothed by the application of savage metal, spoiled elephant semen or oral sex. Pustulus is also rumored to be half-deaf, which leads him to yell at everyone, which he does often, because he is convinced everyone in the band is ignoring him when actually he just can't hear what they are saying. It is not known whether he crashed his Scumship into Antarctica or wandered up from the depths of GWAR's Antarctic fortress - all that is known is that he is here, now, and is ready to ROCK.  

But GWAR fans wont have to wait until the tour to witness the ax-mastery of Pustulus.
Make sure to visit The A.V. Club tomorrow to see Pustulus as he shreds for the first time with his Scumdog Brothers inGWAR on a very special song that no other band would play, because it is so fucking hard.  Unless of course you are GWAR.

TESTAMENT Back in Denver!

TESTAMENT Announce U.S. Headlining Tour!

Bay Area thrash metal legends, TESTAMENT, are proud to announce their first U.S. headlining tour since their phenomenal chart success with their new album, Dark Roots of Earth. The trek promises to be one of the best thrash metal lineups in years, with support coming from world renowned OVERKILL and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, as well as Australian thrashers 4ARM.

"It's a thrill to announce our upcoming dates with OVERKILL and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM,” commented guitarist Alex Skolnick. “It’s a tour that brings together three different metal bands from three different regions:  West Coast, East Coast and Southwest.  All three bands sound very different from one another yet are highly compatible.

Salvador Santana Live in Denver & Co Springs!

We are pleased to announce two shows with latin rock artist, Salvador Santana, son of legendary guitar player Carlos Santana, live at Marquis on March 8th and at Black Sheep on March 10th! Tickets for these epic shows go on sale this Friday, Dec. 21st! here.


Music is a burst of choices.

Not only what note to play when and with what instrument, but whether to play a note at all. Salvador Santana, the 28-year-old keyboardist, vocalist, composer, and songwriter with strong Bay Area roots, knows what it means to navigate the infinite options of music. His 2008 project with the Salvador Santana Band–simply called SSB–pursued the scope of his ability. But
for Santana, it wasn’t enough. He has no choice but to push himself further.

Collaboration has always been the centerpiece of his creations, and this passion manifested his solo debut “Keyboard City” (released 2/2 via Various Music/Quannum Projects) around the inspirations of a few legends: Bay Area MC/producer Del the Funky Homosapien who helped hone in Santana’s writing skills, Beastie Boy studio wizard Money Mark, and GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.

The legendary founder of the Wu-Tang Clan rallied support around the album by featuring himself on a remix of the title track “Keyboard City” earlier this fall which was later remixed by none other than Dan Deacon. This spontaneous meeting of the minds demonstrated Sal’s magnetic ability to connect every kind of artist on any dynamic level.

Money Mark inspired Santana in a beautiful way during the creation process. “With all the people I’ve ever collaborated with or just working by myself, I have never produced so many ideas into songs as I have during these Money Mark sessions. That guy is just a machine,” said Santana. “He has mentored me by showing me that it’s cool to be all over the place. It’s cool to sit there and work on a song, then out of nowhere, interrupt that flow and work on another idea. To just go with it,” Santana elaborates.

Santana is pushed by a need to step out of his comfort zone in a quest for new ideas. Easy going and humble, Santana exudes the Bay Area vibe. He began playing the drums at age three–sitting on his father’s lap, controlling the snare and tom, as his father worked the hi-hat and kick drum–but his true love was discovered when he began taking piano lessons when he was six. Later, he studied at San Francisco’s heralded School of the Arts before attending Cal Arts in Valencia, CA. His education, passion and lineage have turned Santana into a monster on the keys.

Music truly thrives in his veins. His maternal grandfather was blues pioneer Saunders King and his paternal grandfather was the internationally celebrated violinist and mariachi bandleader Jose Santana. And, of course, his father is 10X Grammy-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Carlos Santana…who’s also a frequent collaborator (Salvador co-wrote “El Farol” from 1999’s smash album Supernatural).

In addition to his musical desires, Santana has worldly efforts on his mind. After a trip to South Africa and inspiring work with Artists for a New South Africa (ANSA), something triggered inside of Santana to make sure his music wasn’t only about personal glory. Now that the record is out, Salvador will begin touring the project. He has already been posting various non-profit organizations on his website that will receive a percentage of the profits. “I want to use music in a positive way, and give back to people in need. There can never be enough people who do that.” And there can never be enough musicians pushing their art to the brink.

Peter Murphy Celebrates 35 Years Of Bauhaus Live at Summit Music Hall

Peter Murphy Celebrates 35 Years Of Bauhaus live at Summit Music Hall on July 16, 2013. Tickets on sale Friday via

March 6, 2013 (New York, NY) – Iconic frontman Peter Murphy has announced the Mr. Moonlight Tour, celebrating 35 years of Bauhaus.  Murphy, who has started working with producer Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve) on the follow up to his 2011 critically acclaimed solo effort, NINTH (Nettwerk), will spend three months touring North America and Europe with a full band performing only Bauhaus material.
Says Peter, “Since 2006, I have included my Bauhaus work into my solo work as a way of tipping my hat to my own audience…those who discovered my early work as well as new and old fans of those years strong wishes to hear the music of my band crackle and spark in the live arena. Being the foremost advocate of this Bauhaus work, I decided the time was ripe to at last give a pure Bauhaus experience in one Mr. Moonlight world tour. Mr. Moonlight is alive and well, don't doubt it.” 
Bauhaus formed in 1978 and achieved worldwide cult status that continues to this day. As the main man of the acclaimed outfit, Peter Murphy helped usher in ground breaking opaque moods and atmospheres into the post-punk landscape. Bauhaus originally split in 1983, but eventually bowed to public pressure to reform in 1998 and again in 2005. The Mr. Moonlight Tour will be the first time since 2006 that Peter Murphy will perform full Bauhaus sets, and the first time ever that he will do so on his own.

Second Annual Fight To Unite Tour Announced - April 27th at Summit Music Hall

After a hugely successful inaugural run in 2012, which featured Blood on the Dance Floor, Brokencyde, Deuce, Polkadot Cadaver and others, The Fight To Unite Tour, presented by Swisher Xtreme, returns in 2013 with double platinum selling headliner Kottonmouth Kings, and former Hollywood Undead front man Deuce as main support. Additional support comes from Dizzy WrightSnow Tha Product and Eskimo Callboy.
Starting on April 9, the tour, which brings together the best and brightest in the alternative/psychedelic rock and hip hop scenes, will play in major and secondary markets across the US. VIP Tickets are available allowing early access, a value added package of merchandise and a exclusive meet & greet with Kottonmouth Kings. The general ticket on-sale date is February 22 (see ticket links below.)
Kottonmouth Kings; latest LP, Mile High, was released in 2012 and charted at #10 on the Rock and Alternative albums charts, as well as #36 on the Billboard Top 200. The Southern California band has sold over 2 million albums over the course of their career in the indie music scene and continues to perform sold out concerts across the country. They are also heavily involved in the Action Sports world having formed their own dirt bike organization called Dirt Bike Kiz and performing demos all over North America.
It all started seventeen years ago, deep in the suburbs of Southern California, in the aftermath of a punk rock & hip hop revolution - an unlikely group of stoned misfits formed a musical partnership that would ignite an entire generation of weed loving, free thinking, bass bumping, rip hop junkies. KMK has become one of the world’s most radical and savagely independent underground musical forces.
Rock's biggest underdog, Deuce was one of the genres breakout artists of 2012. "America" – the lead single off of Deuce's debut album, Nine Lives, which Revolver Magazine proclaimed is "A slick, nasty record that sounds like Eminem fronting Linkin Park" – was one of the highest selling rock tracks of the year. Deuce is a lyricist, songwriter, producer and knows-no-boundaries singer/rapper hailing from Los Angeles, CA. As the co-founder, former lead singer and main songwriter/producer for Hollywood Undead, Deuce emerged as the creative force that led the band to staggering albums sales of their debut, Swan Songs, which also reached #1 on the Alternative, Hard Rock and Rock album charts. Deuce is known for his signature masks and ability to jumpstart any party with his often raunchy and explicit lyrics. Since his departure with Hollywood Undead in 2010, Deuce has performed in front of thousands and released his debut solo album Nine Lives in April of 2012, which debuted at #2 on iTunes' rock albums chart and #16 overall.
Las Vegas-based rapper Dizzy Wright began rapping at just 8 years old with the group “DaFuture” with his brother and very close friend. At 17-years old with several years of experience Dizzy decided to take his rap career seriously. Formerly known as Dizzy D Flashy, Dizzy was a winner on BET’s “Wild Out Wednesdays,” winner of the Sheikh Music “Rip the Mic” Competition and released 5 mixtapes, which lead him to rack up over 1-million views on YouTube. Wright wants for people to learn something when they listen to his music by discussing situations that his fans can relate to. In November 2011, Wright signed to Funk Volume after being discovered at the Sheikh Music “Rip the Mic” Competition in 2010. Impressed by his smooth flow, confident stage presence and energy that won over the crowd, Funk Volume knew he was a special talent and would be valuable addition to the team. On the heels of his latest mixtape “Soul Searchin’ Next Level,” Wright will release “Smoke Out Conversations” on February 20th, and says the tape was inspired by Don Miguel Ruiz’s widespread book, “The Four Agreements.” “I live the four agreements …. The first agreement is be impeccable with your word. People will learn something from this mixtape.”
Snow tha Product (aka 22-year-old, Claudia A. Feliciano), a native of California, but resident of Texas, is an underground phenomenon and sensation taking the scene by storm in a way that has put male MCs on alert. She’s a beauty and a beast – looks and lyrical skills on the microphone, respectively. Physical stature aside, she stands as tall as any female MC in the game and can wreck a track in fluent Spanish or English with a handful of male MCs trying to match her lyrical level, as she did on Capea El Dough P City Remix.
For ten years, the six musicians of Eskimo Callboy wandered through this cosmos called “Rock Music“, until they found each others in 2010. With their self-described, “Danceable porn-metal, with a pinch of psychedelic glam rock“, the creativity of these six midtwenty fellows from Castrop-Rauxel, Germany is evident in their live performances and on their latest self-titled 6 song EP. posted: February 18, 2013

Sublime With Rome Back at Red Rocks this Summer!

AEG Live & Soda Jerk Presents are excited to announce SUBLIME WITH ROME live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday, August 11, 2013. 


Fueled By Ramen band Sublime with Rome – singer/guitarist Rome, bass player Eric Wilson, and drummer Josh Freese - have unveiled details for their summer touring plans for North America.  The headlining run kicks off July 7th at Echo Beach in Toronto, ON and continues into August, with support on most shows from punk rock veterans Pennywise.  Select dates feature support from Descendents and Iration with a trio of tour stops coinciding with 311’s annual Unity Tour (see attached itinerary). Public on sale begins Saturday, April 27, with advance pre-sale tickets available beginning on Wednesday, April 24.  For more information, please visit  the band’s official website,

With the release of “YOURS TRULY” - their first album of new music in over a decade – Sublime with Rome returned to the top of the radio charts with hits like “Panic” and “Take It Or Leave It.”  A relentless touring schedule took the band all over the world, playing the new songs alongside old favorites. Last year, frontman Rome Ramirez released his solo debut EP, “DEDICATION,”  which saw the talented singer/songwriter teaming with a stellar line-up of studio superstars – including Benny Blanco (Maroon 5, Ke$ha, Wiz Khalifa), Robopop (Gym Class Heroes, Lana Del Rey), and The Futuristics (The Lonely Island Feat. Justin Timberlake & Lady Gaga) – as well as Nate Ruess of fun. and Grammy-winning producer Jeff Bhasker (fun., Kanye West, Jay-Z) on the exhilarating title track.  Rome is currently working on his debut full length.

Sublime with Rome first came together in 2009 for a series of shows including such multi-artist bills as Cypress Hill’s Smokeout and the annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas spectacular.  Buoyed by the extraordinarily positive response, the band embarked on a worldwide headline tour that drew packed houses and rave reviews at every stop.  While the music of Sublime has always remained in constant radio rotation, singer/songwriter Rome scored a hit of his own, co-writing and lending his distinctive voice to The Dirty Heads’ recent #1 modern rock hit, “Lay Me Down.”

Founded in Long Beach, CA, in 1988, Sublime was without question one of the most successful and influential ska-punk bands of all time.  Fueled by such radio hits as “Date Rape,” “Santeria,” and the chart-topping “What I Got,” the band achieved worldwide sales in excess of 17 million, including 1992’s RIAA 2x-platinum certified “40 OZ. TO FREEDOM,” 1994’s gold certified “ROBBIN’ THE HOOD,” 1996’s 5x-platinum blockbuster, “SUBLIME,” and 1997’s platinum certified “SECOND HAND SMOKE.”   Named by Los Angeles’ KROQ as its third “Biggest Band of All Time” for six years running – topped only by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana.

General Admission and Reserved tickets are $39.50 - $43.50 plus applicable service charges.  All ages are welcome. posted: April 22, 2013

The Revival Tour THIS WEEKEND in Colorado


Live at Summit Music Hall - 4/13/13 & Aggie Theatre - 4/14/13
Special 4 pack tickets available for Aggie Theatre
Tickets available at

Featuring Dave Hause, Tim McIlrath, Jenny O., Chuck Ragan, Rocky Votolato

Celebrating its sixth year fostering the rich folk tradition of giving and openness and propelled by an innate need to tell a story in its naked acoustic state, 2013's edition of The Revival Tour will kick off in March, featuring Dave Hause of Loved Ones, Toh Kay (a.k.a. Tomas Kalnoky) of Streetlight Manifesto Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath, LA's Jenny O., The Get Up Kids frontman Matt Pryor, Americana singer/songwriter and original tour organizer Chuck Ragan, Seattle-based singer/songwriter Rocky Votolato, NJ-based singer/songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs with additional artists to be announced. Starting its five-week trek around the US in Corpus Christi on March 15th (and a rousing return at Austin's SxSW the following night), The Revival Tour will bring the much-celebrated camaraderie that it's based on and the collaborations that are bred from its essence. "We're proud to say that we're embarking on the 6th year of The Revival Tour and we're honored to be kicking off in the great state of Texas," said Ragan. "I've always been overwhelmed and inspired at how these collaborations and combinations of artists come together tour after tour." Adds Owen Youngs, "I'm most excited to throw down with some incredible songwriters and give a good time to the folks who come out to the shows." (tour dates attached).

Loosely structured in the form of old-fashioned folk musician get-togethers, The Revival Tour is an ensemble collective in which the participating musicians collaborate and jam, frequently creating unique and inspired once-in-a-lifetime moments of brilliance – often multiple times in a single night. "Being a part of The Revival Tour last year in Europe was definitely one of the best tour experiences I've ever had," says Votolato. "It reminded me of why I got into playing music in the first place. The spirit of collaboration, humility, and camaraderie keeps the shows feeling real and immediate every night. Chuck Ragan's work ethic and passion for what he's doing are inspiring and I'm honored to have the chance to share the stage with him again on this upcoming run of shows!"

"After crashing the Revival party in Chicago last year, I saw how much fun those dudes were having. I jumped at the chance to be a part of this year's Revival, I can't wait," adds McIlrath who joins this year's outing on the second half of dates. Hause contributes, "It's no secret, I love The Revival Tour. I'm honored to be a part of it again here in the US, and I can't wait to get out there and play with all the great folks Chuck has invited to this year's festivities. Treat yourself to a ticket."

I'm honored to be a part of it again here in the US, and I can't wait to get out there and play with all the great folks Chuck has invited to this year's festivities. Treat yourself to a ticket."


A special pre-sale will begin at 10am PST on Friday, January 11th. Each general admission ticket will be accompanied by an instant download for The 2013 Revival Tour Sampler, which includes a track from each of the artists. The following three Special VIP packages will be offered as well:


1) General Admission ticket, instant download of The Revival Tour 2013 Sampler, and a Limited Edition and numbered lithograph print

2) General Admission ticket, instant download of The Revival Tour 2013 Sampler, and Limited Edition The Revival Tour flask

3) General Admission ticket, instant download of The Revival Tour 2013 Sampler, and Chuck Ragan's Covering Ground Picture Disc


The critically-hailed tour has hosted Tim Barry (Avail), Ben Nichols (Lucero), Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), Brian Fallon (Gaslight Anthem), Jim Ward (Sparta), Kevin Seconds (7 Seconds), Audra Mae, and Frank Turner among many diverse and exciting cast of collaborators. The Los Angeles Times hailed, “the vitality of this tour is in the camaraderie -everyone takes turns up front and in support of one another, and the group pairings often make for some unexpectedly moving collaborations.” BrooklynVegan chimed, “In traditional revival fashion, once the music starts this new guard of young, genre-defying, musicians keep it rolling, teaming in and out through each other’s sets until the final farewell of the night.”


Conceptualized in 2005 and coming to fruition in 2008 with the inaugural lineup of Ragan, Tim Barry (Avail), Ben Nichols (Lucero), and a cast of revolving guests, the tour spanned 57 days playing a total of mind-numbing 52 shows. 2010 saw The Revival Tour across Australia with the likes of Frank Turner, Tim Barry, Ben Nichols, Ragan, Jen Buxton, Jamie Hay and Darren Gibson followed by a one performance in Las Vegas with a wide cast of artists from members of Flogging Molly including Nathan Maxwell and Matt Hensley, members of Lucero, Lagwagon and the Adolescents. In 2011, Revival crossed the Atlantic and darted across UK, Ireland, and Europe, playing mostly sold out shows in 1,500 to 2,000 capacity venues. 2012’s tour hit over 33 major markets throughout the U.S. and Canada, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Nashville.

"I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing yet another year of Revival and catching another incredibly unique view of what's happening within today's rising folk, Americana and independent music community," concludes Ragan. "Not to mention witnessing the joining of strangers from around the globe of all ages that unite to walk away and carry on as life-long friends." Adds first-timer Jenny O., "I am really looking forward to this special Revival tour, this intention of community. Music is a celebration and I'm excited to share the trip."

We are pleased to announce a night with the legendary post-metal band known as Neurosis on Saturday, February 16th live at Summit Music Hall. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 21st here.

Additionally, on Friday, February 15th, we are pleased to bring you a very special night with Corrections House featuring Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, Sanford Parker of Nachmystium, & Bruce Lamont of Yakuza at the Moon Room at Summit Music Hall. Tickets for this rare event are also on sale on Friday, December 21st here so come out for an incredible weekend of live music.

Descriptors fail in the same way that describing the shock of the sudden or new or subtle grace of magnitude fails. Each and every time. Because words are idea shorthand for experience and experience can only be transmitted, if you’re lucky or unlucky enough to miss it the first time, through comparative measures and means: a nightmare is an unhappy dream, death is like when life stops and the earth calls, and violent change is when everything is no longer the same but hurts because of it.

But here’s a shorthand: NEUROSIS is music. Music in the same way that Wagner is music. Or that it all comes down. Or the graying granite planet we call home is both the cradle and coffin of all desire and hopes and expression forces its way through us and into wires and out of speakers framing a journey from here to there and not back again. Ever. This is a one-way trip.

So keep the descriptors – the “crushes”, the “destroys”, “dark” and even “deep”. These are both all at once and again not enough, and not even too much. They’re products of lazy inquiry.

Keep them and let the real shoulder its way to the front. Like it did when the San Francisco Bay Area, forget that…when Oakland gave birth to this ride and the ticket for it in 1985 as NEUROSIS. Under the stewardship of Scott Kelly, Dave Edwardson, Jason Roeder and in 1989 spiritual heir Steve Von Till [and now Noah Landis and Josh Graham on visuals], NEUROSIS does only what the best art can: it crafts a sense world for those with sense and senses from the realm of eternal ideas and weaves it, whole cloth, into the audio, the visual, the powerful. A seamless melding and welding of elements that are not too wildly disparate: loss, gain, and eventually gaining through loss. And with a host of fellow travelers from STEVE ALBINI, JARBOE and a passel of solo and side projects that involve kindred spirits from THE MELVINS, SLEEP, ST. VITUS, a recorded output of 27-odd releases, and tours all over the lands known and unknown to try to capture them with a single descriptor, and many have tried – metal, doom, ambient hardcore – is misguided at worst and a waste of time at best.

So here it is again: NEUROSIS is music. And art. And a chilling testament to the glories of the briefest of times of our lives. And you not knowing this? Makes it no less true.

Until death do we part, indeed.

Attack! Attack! Announce Final Tour

Attack Attack have announce this is their final tour. They will play the Marquis Theater on Monday, May 6th. Tickets available at

A note from the band:

Well everyone, it's been a wild ride for Attack Attack, but I think it's about time Whiting and I take some time to write this note.

We want to start by thanking every single one of you that has ever come out to a show, bought a shirt, gotten in a fight over crabcore, or spent the time to send us notes online. We have been insanely blessed to be able to do what we have done with AA and we think it's time that we wrap up
this chapter in our lives.

Yes, this means exactly what you think it means. The Back in Action Tour will be Attack Attack's final and most ironic tour.

After 6 long years of playing in garages, VFW halls, clubs, open air festivals, and everything in-between. We've decided it is time to lay AA down for good.

You are all beautiful, wonderful people, and we want you to know that we deeply appreciate everything you have done for us.

We are sad to lay Attack Attack to rest, but are very excited for what is next in this new chapter of our lives.

Stay Tuned!!!

Much love,

The Andrews

JUST ANNOUNCED! Govinda w/ D.V.S* live at Marquis!

Electronic music composer, Govinda takes the stage live at the Marquis Theater on Saturday, December 8th w/ Brooklyn-based electronic musician D.V.S.* (Derek VanScoten). Tickets on sale via on Friday!


Govinda is the alter-ego of Austin based producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin with mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.

Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more and been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Sea of Dreams, SXSW and more. Govinda’s music has been licensed on shows like “Roswell” WB, “Road Rules” MTV, and “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” Bravo as well as many independent films.

The Govinda live show is truly a multi-sensory experience that features professional dancers, live projections, resonating vocals and a sonical sound-scape. His live experience is full of vibrant energy that plays to its crowd. Govinda performs on Ableton Live accompanied by classical violin. Govinda is currently touring in support of his album “Universal On Switch” which was released independently earlier this year.
