Stereo Satellite Release Official Music Video for Debut Single “Glass Houses”

Newly formed rock band Stereo Satellite, featuring Lukas Rossi (Rock Star Supernova), Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob), John Moyer (Disturbed), and Jordan Cannata (Adrenaline Mob), has released the Official Music Video for their debut single, “Glass Houses.” Originally premiered on Loudwire, “Glass Houses” is the first single off of their new album tentatively set for April 2018 release. Fans can access exclusive content for the album release via the bands’ PledgeMusic campaign.

Stereo Satellite plays hard rock music that flirts with alternative rock influences. By melding hook-filled melodies within heavy guitar riffs and hard beats, the band shows their ability to compact a vast array of influence and experience into a signature sound with substance, style, and spirit. Mike Orlando and Lukas Rossi are the key architects behind the band’s vibrant, modern rock-inspired sound – powered by seamless songwriting adeptness that combines a story of both the joys and heartaches of life.

Mike Orlando is no stranger to heartaches, having recently been involved in a tragic accident on July 14, 2017 while on tour in Florida with his former band Adrenaline Mob. The crash occurred when a tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 and struck the band’s RV, van, and trailer, which resulted in the death of Adrenaline Mob bassist David Zablidowsky, tour manager Jane Train, and seriously injuring six others.

“Over the past recent months, I have learned a lot about how cathartic music can be, especially after going through such a heinous life-changing tragedy”, said Orlando. “It’s been a complete uphill battle in even trying to begin to heal physically and mentally. I have a long road ahead for sure and will have to undergo many more procedures and ongoing therapy.” Orlando adds, “I don’t think I’ll ever fully heal mentally but I’ve been moved to write songs again with my brother Lukas who I feel is an amazing songwriting partner, and start this new band along with my brothers John Moyer and Jordan Cannata. I find it really helps me to cope and I can’t wait to share all the music we’ve written and start touring again full-time.”

John Moyer admits to having mixed feelings about the band being dubbed a supergroup. “We hate the supergroup thing because it’s a new band in its own right,” Moyer says. “But I think it’s important for us to say we’ve been around the rock music scene for a long time and in various ways. Stereo Satellite is a new beginning for us all, and I’m looking forward to sharing our new music with the fans very soon.”

Lukas Rossi concurs, saying, “I can’t wait to release our new songs and perform them live with these awesome guys. Regarding the supergroup thing, look I don’t care what you call us, just call us!”

All That Remains in Tulsa at Cain’s Ballroom 12/6/17

On Wednesday, December 6th, we had the chance to see All That Remains along with Alter Bridge and Sons of Texas at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa and we were not going to pass up that chance.  We never pass up the opportunity to see All That Remains when they are nearby.

IMG_8818 IMG_8848

There aren’t very many bands out there who are diverse as this band is.  One minute Phil is singing the ballad, “What If I Was Nothing”, and the next minute he is screaming and growling the heavy, thrash song “No Knock”.  I was very pleased to hear my personal favorite song, “This Probably Won’t End Well”.

IMG_8868 IMG_8890

You would be hard pressed to put together a list of bands that can pull off the range of diversity on a set list like All That Remains can.  And they make it look effortless.  It definitely explains why they have stayed in this business for almost 20 years.

IMG_8937IMG_8861

All That Remains is all set to wrap up this tour on December 23rd in Montreal, Canada.  Keep an eye on their website www.allthatremainsonline.com for updates and links to their social media pages to be the first to know about new tour dates and new info.

Papa Roach at The Diamond Ballroom 12/2/17

We have never missed the opportunity to see Papa Roach any time they are in our area, but it always seemed that it was always as part of a festival line-up.  This was our first time to get to see them in a more “intimate setting”.  I use that term loosely, because there were still at least 2,000 people in the legendary Diamond Ballroom for their recent stop in Oklahoma City.  There is a reason why these guys continue to pack houses even after over 20 years in the business.  Somehow, the band is like wine and better every single time we see them.  Jacoby never fails to put the biggest smile on my face, so full of energy, so crowd oriented, and just spot on every single time.

Check out their website www.paparoach.com for their upcoming tour dates, and don’t miss them when they are at a town near you!!

They will be touring with A Day to Remember, Devil Wears Prada, and Falling in Reverse Feb. 20th – March 20th.  They take a couple weeks off to rest (hopefully), and hit the road again with Nothing More and Escape the Fate from April 5th – May 13th.

BleachBangs Alum Jason McMaster’s “Howling Sycamore” Reveal New Track “Let Fall”

HOWLING SYCAMORE, Featuring Davide Tiso, Jason McMaster, and Hannes Grossmann, Reveal New Track “Let Fall”
Listen Now via MetalSucks
Self-Titled Album out January 26, 2018 | Pre-Order Here
 
Multi-talented guitarist and producer, Davide Tiso (Ephel Duath, Gospel of the Witches), recently announced the formation of his new extreme progressive metal outfit, HOWLING SYCAMORE. The band features the seasoned talents of Watchtower and Dangerous Toyssinger, Jason McMaster, and drumming sensation Hannes Grossmann (Necrophagist, Obscura). The album also features special guest performances by Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Brain Tentacles) on baritone saxophone, plus Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrhythmia, Gorguts) and Fester (Burials, Humorous) on guitars.
HOWLING SYCAMORE will release their self-titled, stunning, avant-garde extreme progressive metal album via Prosthetic Records on January 26, 2018. Pre-orders for the album in digital, compact disc and limited edition silver vinyl LP formats are available here: http://smarturl.it/howlingsycamore
Following up on the release of their first single, “Upended”, HOWLING SYCAMORE are pleased to reveal a second new track, entitled “Let Fall”. The massive new track can be streamed now via MetalSuckshttp://www.metalsucks.net/2017/12/11/track-premiere-howling-sycamore-let-fall/
Davide Tiso says: “‘Let Fall’ is a song of opposites. While groovy melodies pull you up at first, the bleak, introspective lyrics come in to drag you down after. In the heart of the song, during a Tony Iommi-infused riff, the Sycamore tree is summoned with prayer-like singing, referencing it loud and clear as the guide-like entity that it is for the concept of the band itself. With Jason McMaster crying out my painful awareness of not really fitting in anywhere, it becomes, to me, one of the most intense and dramatic moments of the whole album. Then again, the groovy melody comes in to lift your mood back up to where you started.”
Howling Sycamore track listing:
  1. Upended
  2. Obstinate Pace
  3. Let Fall
  4. Intermezzo
  5. Midway
  6. Chant of Stillness
  7. Descent to Light
  8. Dysphoria
Tiso was always fascinated by the symbolism of the sycamore tree, which has special significance in Egyptian religion and that “bridged the world of the dead and the living” in David Lynch’s cult TV series. Visually, the sycamore is particularly striking in winter when it gains a ghost like appeal: the bark turns white and it reflects the moonlight in otherworldly ways, bearing not only mystery but also a certain component of solitude and pain. These were the inspirations for Tiso as he assembled his extreme, progressive ensemble, HOWLING SYCAMORE.
HOWLING SYCAMORE was born from the stubborn idea of melting together different styles of heavy music into something powerful, sincere and with a strong identity”, elaborates Tiso. “I wanted to mix extreme metal drumming, layered down-tuned guitars and old school prog metal singing. I’m so grateful that these amazing musicians helped shape the album into the beautiful weirdness that it became.”

Primitive Race “Dancing on the Sun” Single Released in Honor of Late Chuck Mosley

Primitive Race 300DPI Black and White

Primitive Race Share “Dancing On The Sun” Off of ‘Soul Pretender,’ in Honor of Late Front-Man, Chuck Mosley

100% of 2018 Album Sales to Benefit MusiCares

On November 3rd, Primitive Race released their compelling Alternative Rock album Soul Pretender, with vocals handled by Chuck Mosley (Faith No More, Bad Brains, Cement, VUA), music by Erie Loch (LUXT, Blownload, Exageist), Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter Murphy, Tricky, Gary Numan), Bass and song-writing from founding member Chris Kniker, and drums by Dale Crover (The Melvins). On November 9th, Chuck Mosley died after many years battling addiction, making the long awaited album the legendary front-man’s swan song. In honor of Chuck, the band has chosen to share his favorite track off of the album, “Dancing on the Sun,” and to donate 100% of 2018 album sales to MusiCares to benefit substance abuse treatments for artists battling addiction.

Says Chuck’s long-time friend Chris Kniker:

“I wasn’t prepared for any of this. Most only knew Chuck Mosley as the former singer of Faith No More; to me was a friend with whom I had formed a special bond over the past 17 years. Chuck was funny, witty, charismatic, and charming in a way that was only Chuck. He was truly one of a kind. Chuck inspired Mark, Erie, and I, and I knew we did the same for him. He felt we had created something that allowed him to grow as an artist. He was thrilled and honored to be playing on a record with Dale Crover. I was just happy to know that we made a record that I enjoyed; a group of friends creating something together. I am sure that Chuck would want us all to learn and grow from his struggles. Addiction is a horrible burden to bare for the afflicted and their loved ones. If you are or know someone who needs help don’t be afraid to ask.”

“When I listened to the music, ideas just came pouring out,” Mosley had previously stated. “I couldn’t say no to doing the record. When we completed the first few tracks, I found myself wishing I had written them. Not just the lyrics…just good heavy riffs and grooves really sucked me in. The melodies and words came super easy with this music. Even though it’s a whole different vibe it brought out a side of me I haven’t experienced since writing with Faith No More.”

Soul Pretender

Track List:
1. Row House
2. Cry Out
3. Cranial Matter
4. Take It All
5. Bed Six
6. Stepping Stone
7. Turn It Up
8. Soul Pretender
9. Nothing To Behold
10. Dancing on The Sun

Early Praise for Soul Pretender:

It’s hard not to view Primitive Race’s sophomore outing, Soul Pretender, as the next chapter in Chuck Mosley’s epic comeback story. On the record, out Friday on Metropolis, Mosley is positively radiant, sounding better, sharper and more engaged than he has since the heyday of Faith No More’s Introduce Yourself. After years of being relegated to the struggles of “solo” outings and hard-to-find Cement discs, Mosley here is raspy – he wears his age incredibly well – and utterly menacing as he lurks behind lurching guitars and the occasional twinkle of a keyboard, the landscape darker than his previous work. And, damn, does it work! – Pop Dose

If Primitive Race’s stylistic trajectory is to be considered, as exhibited in the group’s two albums; add to that, the invigorating (but at the same time, inadvertent) inclusion of Mosley’s memories into this latest offering – then there should be something more that can be expected from the collective’s future projects. For the meantime, let your senses get drowned in pleasant torture in the sonic machinery of this scorching undertaking. – CrypticRock

Time will tell what the next incarnation of Primitive Race will hold, but if the first two albums are any indication, then it should be just as great while continuing to establish the supergroup’s place in the world of punk and industrial rock. – mxdwn

Breaking Through Join Saliva on the Only The Sickest Survive Tour

IMG 2740

Alternative/Modern rock band Breaking Through have announced that they will be touring as direct support for Saliva this fall on the ‘Only the Sickest Survive Tour.” The tour kicks off on November 24th at Rockin Willy’s in MC Comb, MS and will conclude on December 16th in El Paso, TX. Breaking Through will be releasing a brand new single early 2018!

Breaking Through is an alternative/modern rock band that started in the summer of 2011. They are five friends that were scattered in the Jacksonville, Florida music scene, all with a slight taste of success in previous endeavors. During the summer they met up at parties and would jam in various band rooms for fun. After a few sessions they had discovered a sound and energy that they just weren’t finding anywhere else! A natural balance between being steady and risking it all, pushing to the edge and then bringing it back, which is the core tension at the heart of the “Breaking Through” sound and has become their identity. That means the brutal honesty and power of straight ahead rock. Phrases turn, emotions connect, and melodies soar. You sing along even though you’ve never heard the tune before.

Breaking Through decided to record some tracks to see what would happen. They booked time in a local studio and from that moment they knew this was where all of them were meant to be. After two weeks, 6 songs were finished, which would become Breaking Through’s first EP, The Scarlet Letters on April 7th, 2012. The next EP The Lessons Learned was released in the summer of 2016.

Since the release of The Scarlet Letters, Breaking Through has started to make waves in the Jacksonville and North Florida area. Playing in local clubs has confirmed “their sound “ as being met with an overwhelming acceptance. Breaking Through has opened for and toured with nationally recognized acts like Chevelle, 30 Seconds To Mars, STP, 21 Pilots, Jimmy Eat World, A Day To Remember, The Dirty Heads, Coheed and Cambria, Red, Fuel, Saliva, Saving Abel, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, A Skylit Drive and many, many more.

With the chemistry coming so natural and the timing so right. They are prepared to bring the “Breaking Through” sound to the rest of the world! They are committed to building their fan base the “old-fashioned way” by making a name for themselves one show at a time.

Welcome to our story.

Welcome to Breaking Through.

Deuce Set To Drop Sophomore Album “Invincible” on December 1st

Invincible

Portland based and Los Angeles bred rapper, producer, and singer, Deuce, has announced that his latest album “Invincible” will be released via Better Noise Records on December 1st.  The masked musician is vying for immortality with 14 new tracks representing his next, natural step from his 2012 debut solo album “Nine Lives”, which sold 100,000 units, received 33 million views on You Tube, and featured the hit single “America”.

Recorded in both Los Angeles and Portland, the recording process brought out polarizing emotions.  “The material we did in L.A. was a little angrier” Deuce explains, “in Portland it got more mellow and hip-hop.  I think you can hear the difference.”

“Invincible” includes “World On Fire”, “Bitch This Is It”, and the lead single “Here I Come” (out now on Better Noise Records), which features eerie keys and a chugging guitar and an unshakable hook, Until I die, I’m never fucking done.

If you like some rap mixed with your rock, this is definitely the album for you.  The diversity on this album is amazing.  You’ve got the kick ass rapping in “Hells Gonna Break Loose”, then you come to the melodic song “Thank You” showing off his softer vocal ability.  The final song on the album “Pull Me Under” is a song that you can just see him playing to the crowd to get them even more pumped up and excited.  This album is proof that Deuce is definitely not a one trick pony.  There is something for everyone on this album.

Nothing More “The Stories We Tell Ourselves” Tour 2017

Nothing More recently stopped in Oklahoma City at The Diamond Ballroom on their “The Stories We Tell Ourselves” Tour promoting their newest album of the same name.  Even though the show was on a Wednesday night, fans still showed up and packed the place.

IMG_5500 IMG_5514 IMG_5546

If you have never seen Nothing More live then shame on you!!  You have no idea what you are missing.  We have seen them as the first band, playing while the gates were opening, on festival stages, at arena shows, and a couple of their headline shows.  They have proven that no matter where they are playing or the size of the stage they are going to give you their all.

IMG_5560 IMG_5565 IMG_5578

The bands stage show is always energy packed and this show was no exception.  They played the perfect mix of their hits and added in some of the songs on their new album.  One of my favorites is always Mr. MTV and of course Salem.  When Mark grabbed the acoustic guitar and Jonny started singing “Just Say When”, I was mesmerized..these guys really can do it all.  Jonny said that song almost didn’t make the album, but I want to say kudos for putting it on there.  The song is beautiful.

If I could make one suggestion for the set list, at least for their next show here, it would be to add the song “Fat Kid” to the list.  I know it is a long shot, and I will probably never hear that song live, but I absolutely love that song.  A girl can wish…right?

IMG_5601 IMG_5618 IMG_5643

I may be a little biased in my review of this show, as Nothing More is one of my absolute favorite bands.  This was the 8th time I have seen them live.  We have been following them for years.  The first time we saw them they were a last minute addition to a concert here in Oklahoma City with Buckcherry and Hinder.  We chatted with them after the show and said they got the call and said they couldn’t turn that down.  And I am glad they didn’t.

IMG_5649 IMG_5753 IMG_5764

Nothing More has wrapped up the first leg of this tour and leave for the European leg from November 22nd through December 14th.  It looks like they will take the holidays off and embark on the next leg of the U.S. tour beginning on February 3rd.
