Scott Stapp at Make America Rock Again Tour

We recently attended the Make America Rock Again 2017 Tour in Wichita, Ks. at The Cotillion.  The show opened with the Wichita local band Waking the Sleeper, followed by Trapt, Sick Puppies, Drowning Pool, and finally Scott Stapp.

The last performance of the night was Scott Stapp.  We recently caught him at the Las Vegas festival as well when he was playing with Art of Anarchy.  He sounded amazing then, but hearing him do songs from Creed in Wichita blew me away.  He sounded absolutely wonderful.  His band was full of energy and engaged the crowd the whole set.  The night of the Wichita show just happened to be Scott’s birthday, so at the direction of Scott’s bass player, the entire crowd sang Happy Birthday to Scott.  Scott looked and sounded great.  It is so wonderful to see him back doing what he was meant to do.  Just seeing the performance Scott gave and being able to see him on stage again was more than worth the trip from Oklahoma City to Wichita.

Make America Rock Again Tour 2017

We recently attended the Make America Rock Again 2017 Tour in Wichita, Ks. at The Cotillion.  The show opened with the Wichita local band Waking the Sleeper, followed by Trapt, Sick Puppies, Drowning Pool, and finally Scott Stapp.  Unfortunately Adelita’s Way wasn’t scheduled for the Wichita stop; however, the rest of the bands on the bill definitely made up for it.

IMG_6982 IMG_7049 IMG_7228

When we arrived at the venue, the line of people to get in the building wrapped almost all the way around the side of the building.  Once we made it inside, the local band Waking the Sleeper was just finishing up their set.  Next up was Trapt.  As strange as it is, for some reason we have never caught a Trapt show.  We were very impressed.  They sounded great, and put on a great performance.

IMG_7263 IMG_7375 IMG_7407

After Trapt, it was time for Sick Puppies.  Personally, Sick Puppies are one of my favorite bands.  We had a chance to interview them over the summer at a Las Vegas festival and they are so humble, funny and down to earth.  And let’s be honest…Emma is a total bad ass.  She puts most guys to shame on that bass.  They definitely chose wisely in picking Bryan Scott as the new vocalist.  He has awesome vocals, and is an excellent showman.

IMG_6195 IMG_6259 IMG_6360

Drowning Pool was the next band in the line-up, and of course their insanely crazy energy brought everyone to their feet.  We have been able to catch Drowning Pool a handful of times, and you can always expect them to throw down and leave it all out on the stage.  They did not disappoint in Wichita that’s for sure.

IMG_6377 IMG_6408 IMG_6525

Last, but not least, the crowd was ready for Scott Stapp.  We recently caught him at the Las Vegas festival as well when he was playing with Art of Anarchy.  He sounded amazing then, but hearing him do songs from Creed in Wichita blew me away.  He sounded absolutely wonderful.  His band was full of energy and engaged the crowd the whole set.  The night of the Wichita show just happened to be Scott’s birthday, so at the direction of Scott’s bass player, the entire crowd sang Happy Birthday to Scott.  Scott looked and sounded great.  It is so wonderful to see him back doing what he was meant to do.

Shaman’s Harvest in OKC 7/27/17

Shaman’s Harvest is currently on tour with Nickelback and Daughtry.  While that is sure to be a pretty amazing show, there was not an Oklahoma City stop on that tour.  We were fortunate enough to have Shaman’s Harvest stop in OKC and play a more intimate show on one of their off days from the tour with Nickelback.

Please don’t forget to click on the link below and check out my interview with Josh Hamler.

I have been able to see Shaman’s Harvest 3 or 4 times at festivals, and they were great.  I was really looking forward to their headlining show, because I was ready to see them play for more than the typical 30 minute sets at the festivals.  They played for about an hour and a half and it was pure gold.  They were able to play their hits along with alot of the songs from their newest album “Red Hands Black Deeds” that released July 28th.  It was awesome getting to see them play so much from this new album.

Make sure to get your copy of “Red Hands Black Deeds”.  This album is an A+, very diverse album.  It has the heavy hitting songs like “The Come Up” and “Off The Tracks”, then you have your slower, soulful songs like “A Longer View”, “Long Way Home”, and “Tusk and Bone”.  The song “Soul Crusher” is a bad ass, groovy song that gets your body moving in that sexy way.  “Off The Track” gets you back to banging your head and you can’t help but sing along.  When I got to the song “Tusk and Bone” I was left speechless.  This is just an absolutely breathtaking, story put to song.  I get goosebumps listening to it everytime.

Hard-hitting rock, heavy breakdowns, and an energetic live performance that never stops entertaining the crowd. Screaming For Silence has continually captivated audiences across the nation, gaining fans with every stop. They’ve been nationally touring for over three years, and have played over four hundred live shows from coast to coast. The constant touring paid off in 2013 when S4S was asked to sponsor and promote PRS’s new line of S2 guitars. 2014 was spent touring and recording their first full-length studio album. Their new material was recorded in North Hollywood, California at Grey Area Studios with producer Erik Ron (Motionless In White, We Came As Romans, New Years Day). With head banging guitar riffs, intense drums, and melodic hooks containing in your face lyrics the boys of S4S have created their own unique sound. The first single off their self-titled debut is aptly named, “The King Is Crowned,” garnered radio play across the country and peaked at #29 on Billboard’s Indicator chart. In May of 2015, S4S was selected by Ernie Ball as the Battle of the Bands for Rock On The Range winners. This year has been amazing and they aren’t stopping now. Having the right combination of talent, work ethic, and road experience S4S is poised to explode onto the rock scene.

Collective Soul w/ Our Lady Peace & Tonic in OKC

We were lucky enough to be able to see Collective Soul with Our Lady Peace and Tonic at their tour stop in Oklahoma City at The Zoo Amphitheater on June 20th.  The evening started out a hot one, but with all the trees, as soon as the sun started going down, it was a beautiful night for an outdoor concert.  I was amazed by the age range of the fans in the crowd.  There were kids as young as probably 8 years old and people reaching into their 70’s.  It is awesome that a band can have such a wide spread fan base.

As soon as Collective Soul took to the stage everyone was on their feet and ready for business.  One girl even got on her dads shoulders on the front row and gave lead singer, Ed Roland a bouquet of flowers.  In exchange, he gave her his wrist band he was wearing.  I have never seen Collective Soul live, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  WOW!!! Ed’s energy is infectious.  He easily covered every square inch of that stage during the show.  When you get to see a band like this live, it is an honor.  With so much interaction with the crowd, you know this is a band that truly wants their fans to have an experience…not just sit and watch a show.  Whether you like the music or not, I for one love it, you gotta respect a band that gives the performance the way these guys do.  It was truly an honor to get to see this show, and I left it with a smile on my face.

Modest Mouse & Morning Teleportation in OKC

Modest Mouse and Morning Teleportation played to a SOLD OUT Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City on June 8th.  People were waiting outside the door to wait to see if they could get a ticket if someone left.  Security was even catching people trying to jump the fence at the back of the venue to get in.  To say the show was great would be an understatement.  Morning Teleportation started the evening with their groovy, yet mellow sound, which was a perfect start to the evening.  After their set was over most of the crowd did not move for fear of losing their spot to watch Modest Mouse.

I have never been to a Modest Mouse show, so I did not know what to expect.  I thoroughly enjoyed their set as well.  There was not a single person in that venue not dancing and singing along with the songs.  That says alot about their fans.  To have that many people packed into a venue and every person singing and dancing was an awesome sight.  They have earned those loyal, devoted fans.  This show was phenomenal!!

Marty Friedman Releases New Album “Wall of Sound” on August 4, 2017

MARTY FRIEDMAN – Grammy Nominated Recording Artist, Ambassador to Japan and Undisputed God of Exotic Guitar Returns with “Wall Of Sound”

The eagerly anticipated follow up to his Billboard charting album, Inferno!

Listen to a New Track “Self Pollution” Here

Wall Of Sound out August 4, 2017 via Prosthetic Records

Pre-Order Here

MARTY FRIEDMAN‘s new album, Wall Of Sound, which will be released on August 4, 2017, expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. It was produced by Friedman, engineered by Paul Fig (Ghost, Rush, Alice In Chains) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Lamb of God, Opeth). Legendary Queen producer, Mack, came on board to handle the mixing on two tracks, “Streetlight” and “For a Friend”, which Friedman proclaimed was, “an honor for me, for sure”. The album’s first track, “Self Pollution”, can be streamed here: https://youtu.be/WMG5QhMfVa8

Regarding the writing and recording process on Wall Of Sound, Friedman responded with this, “It`s a challenge to evolve album after album, especially on your 13th solo album. Not only as a songwriter but it is imperative to do new things on my instrument as well. Luckily this is a challenge that I love. You will find this hard to believe when you hear the density and sheer amount of guitar coming at you from all directions, but in fact all of the final guitar tracks on Wall Of Sound were done in 9 days.”

He continues, “This furious and productive pace was made possible by over a year of making demo after demo and spending more time listening and living with the music rather than just playing it.  I had lived with the songs for so long and edited and re-cut them so many times, that by the time I got to the actual recording studio, it was like I had been playing the whole album on tour for a year already. I learned to do this from making Inferno.”
“This is why a lot of artists` debut albums are so strong-because they have had so much time to reflect on and fix the music, and also more importantly, attach real life experiences to the songs. I feel like I have a debut album here.”

Once again, Friedman assembled an incredible and diverse group of musicians to record and guest on Wall Of Sound. His core recording band is made up of Anup Sastry, a modern whiz kid sharing drum duties with uber-veteran Gregg Bissonette, and Japanese bassist Kiyoshi who is undisputedly the most aggressive female bassist on earth. Guests include Jinxx of Black Veil Brides and Shiv Mehra of Deafheaven, and Jorgen Munkeby of Shining lends his voice to the only non-instrumental track on the album.

MARTY FRIEDMAN comments on the guests: “Jinxx from Black Veil Brides and I wanted to do something that would shock his fans and my fans. I arranged a monster of a tune called “Sorrow & Madness” based on a melody that Jinxx wrote on the violin. I took his sweet melody and added so many twists and turns that it became a mammoth of Martyisms in tandem with a large side of Jinxx that has yet to be heard by his fans. We are both very proud of what happened.”

“I think Deafheaven is the one truly heavy band that comes to mind when people ask me to recommend something that`s not Japanese! I was super excited to work with Shiv from Deafheaven. We wrote “Pussy Ghost” together and it is one of the most aggressive songs I have ever played, while at the same time evoking grotesquely beautiful moods that I have never felt before. One thing I learned from making Inferno is that when you have a guest, let them come up with music first. Let it be their baby, so they are personally invested in the song. Then arrange it and do it my way, then add more things together. This gives you a final song that really sounds like both of the people put their heart and souls into the music, as opposed to one guy doing everything and the guest just blasting out a solo somewhere.”

“Jorgen from Shining also guested on Inferno and when we finished that song we immediately started talking about what we would do next. For those who don`t know Inferno, they are like a steroid-ed out and “genius-level musician-ed out” version of Nine Inch Nails for the 21st century, with a charismatic singer/composer (Jorgen) and a wicked sense of melody, that hits me in the gut on every song. “(Just Gimme) Something To Fight” is the one vocal track on the record and it kills. Even after finishing this song we have started working on more new things for who knows what…”

Wall Of Sound track listing:

  1. Self Pollution
  2. Sorrow and Madness (featuring Jinxx of Black Veil Brides)
  3. Streetlight
  4. Whiteworm
  5. For A Friend
  6. Pussy Ghost (featuring Shiv Mehra of Deafheaven)
  7. The Blackest Rose
  8. Something to Fight (featuring Jorgen Munkeby of Shining)
  9. The Soldier
  10. Miracle
  11. Last Lament

TETRARCH Announce Summer Headline Tour

Fast-Rising Metal Group TETRARCH Announce Summer Headline Tour + Release New Track

Get moving! Listen to the instantly-pummelling new track “Break The Trend” here!

New Album Coming Later this Year

tetrarch

There are plenty of new, independent artists out there trying their hardest match the success of rock and metal’s big dogs without the massive industry machine behind them. One listen and it’s clear – none have charged out the gate with the raw talent, promotional expertise and fan following that Atlanta-based modern melodic metal group TETRARCH have proven to command since forming a few years ago. When listening to TETRARCH for the first time, it’s easy to believe you’re jamming out one of our generation’s highest-charting, top-selling rock artists. In reality, you’re witnessing one of rock and metal’s most promising, hard-working rising stars. TETRARCH exude “what it takes” and are undoubtedly on the fast-track to greatness.

Musically – if relentless energy, addictive riffs and unforgettable, hooky vocals describe your recipe for a great band – TETRARCH may just be a new favorite. TETRARCH plan to drop their upcoming album later this year, and wasting no time, have revealed a new track. Listen to the instantly-pummelling new track “Break The Trend” here: https://youtu.be/S-AdmcaMss0

Lead by the multi-faceted, sing-along-worthy vocals of frontman Josh Fore and the searing guitar leads of groundbreaking “guitaress” Diamond Rowe, TETRARCH is rounded out by the powerful bass of Ryan Lermer and relentless drums of Ruben Limas.

TETRARCH‘s new album showcases their commanding blend of intense metalcore riffage and driving drums with the dark vibes and haunting choruses of top-charting modern hard rock. The band’s clear influences – ranging from bands like heavy metal giants Slipknot and Trivium to hard rock darlings Mudvayne and Linkin Park – are evident and give TETRARCH the leg up on the competition. Their sound is crushing enough to fit on any heavy metal bill, but catchy enough to land confidently in commercial radio rotation.

Stay tuned for more details including album title, track listing, art, production credits, pre-orders and more media coming soon in anticipation of TETRARCH‘s new album.

Don’t miss TETRARCH on their upcoming U.S. headline tour – the “Scream Out Loud” tour – visiting 20+ cities this June and July with more TBA. The band will perform several favorites as well as brand new music! See below for a full listing of dates and get your tickets via local venues.

Guitarist Diamond Rowe says, “We are so excited to be hitting the road again for the “Scream Out Loud” tour. We are playing all over the country on this run in a bunch of new cities as well as multiple cities that we have been to several times. I’m sure that we are going to see a bunch of familiar faces as well as several new ones. I think kids are really going to like what we have in store for this run. Not to mention we are going to be playing a few new unreleased songs that no one has ever heard – at least not yet. We have so much to come this year – this tour is just the beginning.”

Barb Wire Dolls New Album & Tour Announcement

“BARB WIRE DOLLS are punk rock all the way to the bone!” – Vice

  barb

Following up on a very successful 2016, raucous rockers BARB WIRE DOLLS are set to release their brand new album, Rub My Mind, on July 7, 2017 via Motörhead Music. The band will tour all summer long in North America on the Vans Warped Tour in support of the album! BARB WIRE DOLLS can be seen daily on the Skullcandy Stage. Tickets are on sale now via www.vanswarpedtour.com. In addition, the band is on tour now in the UK/Europe.

“Back in the U.S.S.A.”, the first single taken from the new album, is a two and half minute fiery social statement of satirical punk-rock heaven that well represents the true sentiment of the record. The video premiered today via Kerrang! and can be watched here: http://www.kerrang.com/48533/barb-wire-dolls-premiere-new-video-back-ussa/

Rub My Mind pre-orders are live today:

CD http://hyperurl.co/RubMyMindCD

Vinyl http://hyperurl.co/RubMyMindVinyl

MP3 http://hyperurl.co/RubMyMindMP3

iTunes http://hyperurl.co/RubMyMindIT

Rub My Mind was recorded in the Joshua Tree desert at legendary studio Rancho De La Luna in California, where Iggy Pop and Queens Of The Stone Age made their seminal albums. Produced and mixed by Jay Baumgardner (Evanescene, John Fogerty, Bush), Rub My Mind is a collection of thirteen eclectic tracks that reflect on the state of our world, how to deal with it – and how to escape it! Rub My Mind builds on the energetic platform of their last two releases – Slit (2013) and Desperate (2016) – delivering an album that confidently grabs your immediate attention. Rub My Mind‘s soundscape blends the melodic rage of lead guitarist and former pro surfer and skateboarder Pyn Doll, the crunchy rhythm guitar of Remmington, the pulsating bass of Iriel Blaque, the Bonham-esque power of Krash Doll on drums; all led by Isis Queen’s dynamic vocals and flamboyant presence. Dedicated to legend Lemmy, the album is an exciting retro cocktail of late ’70s influenced punk and ’90s grunge refracted through the prism of 2017.

Rub My Mind track listing:

  1. Back In The U.S.S.A.
  2. If I Fall
  3. Desert Song
  4. Hole Of Isolation
  5. Gold
  6. Call Me
  7. We Are Champions
  8. Edge Of Innocence
  9. Fade Away
  10. Contract
  11. Where Mountains Drink The Wine
  12. Fire To Burn
  13. Waiting To Be Lost (**track not available on vinyl)

Hailing from an artist commune on the island of Crete, BARB WIRE DOLLS sold everything they owned and left crisis-ridden Greece in 2010 for Los Angeles, at the invite of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer. The band’s electrifying rock did not go unnoticed by the elder statesman of the Sunset Strip, the incomparable, irreplaceable Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. After seeing BARB WIRE DOLLS live, Lemmy took an immediate interest in the band and had them signed to the Motörhead Music record label.

Having played over eight hundred shows in 25 countries, and with an extensive and diverse live support under their belt, including the likes of GBH, Status Quo, NOFX and Steel Panther, BARB WIRE DOLLS are now hitting the road internationally! See below for all currently confirmed tour dates:

Paul Johnson and the About Last Nights EP “Give Up The Ghost” Released May 1st

Paul_Johnson_and_The_About_Last_Nights_-_Give_Up_The_Ghost_-_EP_Cover.jpg

After interviewing Paul Johnson of “Paul Johnson and The About Last Nights” in April we couldn’t wait to listen to the EP “Give Up The Ghosts”.  The EP was released on May 1st.  This EP is a must have!  Everything about the music is just fun.  The EP consists of 4 original songs and the bonus track cover of John Waite’s “Missing You”.

Paul is a southern boy, from Hattiesburg Mississippi.  In the song “Hollywood” he says “don’t take me to Hollywood, keep me in the south where the women are good”.  The song “Burn It Down” is an upbeat, fun, and catchy song.  It is one of those songs that as soon as you listen to it, you will be singing it in your head all day.  Paul’s vocals are great, and their remake of “Missing You” is phenomenal.  This is a band I definitely want to see live.  I bet they put on a fun show.   In our interview, Paul describes their music as “Rock N Roll…Power Pop, with an emphasis on the Power.  High energy power pop with an emotive attitude.”  I can’t get enough of this EP.  Check out the website www.pauljohnsonmusic.com to see where to get the EP.
