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.

In 2016 Lead vocalist Crispin Earl took a rather unique approach to coincide with the concept of the album, Decade. He took the opportunity to reproduce five unreleased songs which were written prior to the first
incarnation of The Veer Union in 2004, bringing them back to life, as well as combining five brand new songs to bridge the span over a DECADE. Now, with the BOX SET release of Decade: History of Our Evolution, The Veer Union will continue this theme by Crispin reproducing the five remaining songs as well as adding five brand new songs again proving that The Veer Union can stand the test of time by incorporating the original vision of the band and blending it with the current incarnation. Decade: History of Our Evolution truly takes the listener through a musical and emotional journey that represents all that is The Veer Union.

The album was self produced and written by Crispin Earl.

Crispin Earl recently started his own Record Label, Rock Shop Entertainment (RSE) and this will be the labels first ever worldwide release! Crispin says, “in the past I have had the pleasure of working with many great people at various record labels and learning from some of the best in the industry. At this point in my career I feel the most important part of being an artist is not having someone impeding on the creative process and now with ROCK SHOP ENTERTAINMENT (RSE), I will have the creative freedom to do as I wish in all creative aspects which is what makes this one of the most exciting releases of my entire career.”

Tom Keifer in Oklahoma City

E801BB5F-9B01-492C-A656-EBCE2DED5C12

Tom Keifer
There is just something about a truly seasoned musician that you can recognize anywhere.  It’s not an arrogance, more of a “this is my comfort zone and where I love to be”.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a huge festival with a big production, or the dive bar in the shadiest part of town, you just know they are the real deal.  That’s the feeling that Tom Kiefer projects to his fans immediately.  I’ve been able to catch Tom once before at Rocklahoma, but I knew this experience was going to be a little different when they announced Tom would be coming back to Oklahoma.  The venue, well we had never heard of it, and come to find out it was actually going to be in a big tent on a plot of land next to a railroad.  This could be interesting.
True to fashion as soon as Tom came on stage you realize what an awesome talent he is . Tom looked great and sounded even better!  The blues just pours out of every part of him, not to mention all of the memories that came back as he tore into somebody save me.
Tom has lived a lot of life and his songs always tell the story.  I Definitely enjoyed being able to see him in a more intimate setting, and was left saying yep he’s still got it.

C heck out the album “The Way Life Goes” and catch him on tour with Warrant and Firehouse.

VIMIC’s Debut Album, ‘Open Your Omen,’ Slated for Early 2018; First Single “Fail Me (My Temple)” Released


SLIPKNOT CO-FOUNDER JOEY JORDISON UNLEASHES NEW BAND, VIMIC

VIMIC SIGNS GLOBAL DEAL WITH T-BOY/UMe

VIMIC’s Debut Album, ‘Open Your Omen,’ Slated for Early 2018;

Los Angeles – October 23, 2017 – VIMIC, the acclaimed heavy rock band founded by GRAMMY Award®-winning Slipknot co-founder and heavy music luminary Joey Jordison, has signed a global deal with Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) and T-Boy Records, UMe’s label partnership with veteran rock manager Andy Gould.

VIMIC’s full-length debut, Open Your Omen, is slated for release in early 2018 by T-Boy/UMe. Produced by Jordison and Kato Khandwala [My Chemical Romance, The Pretty Reckless], with mixing and mastering assistance from Megadeth’s GRAMMY®-winning Dave Mustaine, the album signals the biggest triumph of Jordison’s illustrious career to date, coming to life as he faced his life’s most difficult challenge.

Open Your Omen’s first single, “Fail Me (My Temple)” ft. Dave Mustaine, is out today: https://UMe.lnk.to/VIMICFailMe

Diagnosed in 2012 with the often-permanent neurological affliction Acute Transverse Myelitis, Jordison, who was then Slipknot’s drummer, spent three months in the hospital and underwent intensive physical rehabilitation and training to not only achieve a full recovery, but to reach a new level of proficiency with his instrument. After emerging from this battle and returning to the stage for a string of festival appearances, Slipknot parted ways with him.

Finding a new strength with support from close friends and family, Jordison resolved to get back to doing what he does best. Enter VIMIC: Jordison [drums], Kalen Chase [vocals], Jed Simon [guitar], Kyle Konkiel [bass], Matt Tarach [keyboards], and Steve Marshall [guitar].

VIMIC’s T-Boy/UMe labelmate and Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine joined forces with the band for Open Your Omen, lending his multi-Platinum ear and expertise to help with the album’s mixing and mastering processes and contributing a blistering guitar performance on the album’s lead single. Jordison and Mustaine will both attend the Loudwire Music Awards on October 24 in Los Angeles, where Jordison will present one of the night’s top awards. VIMIC will support Megadeth on several South American tour dates starting October 29 in Santiago, Chile, before headlining select European tour dates in November.

“This album wails!” says Dave Mustaine. “Joey Jordison and VIMIC are incredible! High octane drumming and heavy, melodic songs make this band something you definitely need to check out! I dig them so much I laid a solo down on one of their songs, ‘Fail Me (My Temple).’ From there we decided to take them on tour with us down to South America where Megadeth is massive.”

“The riffs, lyrics, and drums of Open Your Omen will tell you a lot,” Joey Jordison says. “We started this record when I was coming out of the Acute Transverse Myelitis condition. It’s literally what saved me and helped me get back to where I’m healthier than ever. These guys and this album pushed me to not only relearn how to walk, but how to play the drums again. Open Your Omen is the rebirth of the rest of my life.”

Halestorm’s Halloween Scream Tour in OKC 10/17/17

Halestorm recently visited Oklahoma City’s Diamond Ballroom on their Halloween Scream Tour with Starset and New Year’s Day.  I have personally never seen Halestorm on a smaller stage, it has always been large festivals.  So for me to get to see them in this more intimate setting was amazing.  By no means is the Diamond Ballroom small, but it holds roughly 1,000 people as compared to the tens of thousands that are at the festivals I have seen them on.  And the Diamond Ballroom had to be at capacity for this show…that building was packed.  Prior to doors opening, the line outside went the length of the building and wrapped all the way down the parking lot to the road.  I have never seen that many people in line prior to a show there.

IMG_3137 IMG_3179 IMG_3219

New Year’s Day and Starset are amazing bands to start out this show.  They definitely made sure the crowd’s energy level was up for Halestorm.  When the house lights went out, the crowd went crazy.  Then all you can hear are Lzzy’s vocals singing the beginning of “I Get Off”.  About 20 seconds into that, she walks up the steps to take the stage, with the rest of the band to follow.

IMG_3220 IMG_3233 IMG_3255

Obviously, Halestorm has been at this for a long time now, so what can I possibly say that you don’t already know.  I wish I knew what Lzzy does to keep her vocals in top notch shape.  Her vocals are absolutely unbelievable.  She just leaves you in awe.

IMG_3336 IMG_3340 IMG_3355

Their rendition of Whitesnake’s “Still of the Night” was an awesome addition to the set list.  I was completely surprised when she went to the keyboard to belt out Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” right before she sang “Dear Daughter”, I got goosebumps.  That was perfect!!!

IMG_3358 IMG_3373 IMG_3428

Check out the bands website, www.halestormrocks.com, for tour dates, the Halestorm store, Lzzy’s diary, and links to the bands social media sites.  While there are only a couple of tour dates left, the band is working on their next album.  I for one, always love new Halestorm music, and can’t wait to hear it.

Mastodon Tour Stop in OKC on Friday the 13th

Mastodon recently made a tour stop in Oklahoma City at the legendary Diamond Ballroom on Friday the 13th, of October.  The show, dubbed by our local radio station as the “Monster Mosh”, was a packed house.  It was great to see Mastodon back in OKC.  The last time they were scheduled to play here, they were on tour with Clutch in 2015 I believe.  That night got cut short in part by a power outage at the venue due to the tornado that hit roughly a mile away from the venue.  What a way to welcome them to OKC.  I am glad there was not a repeat of any of that this time, and we actually got to see the Mastodon set.   And and what an amazing set it was.

IMG_1684 IMG_1698 IMG_1722

Mastodon released their seventh studio album “Emperor of Sand” on March 31st of this year.  In addition to seven studio albums, the band also released their demo in 2000 followed by an EP in 2001.  That is alot of music since the bands inception in 2000.

IMG_1752 IMG_1769 IMG_1809

I always find it impressive when a band has more than one member who does vocals.  And I don’t mean just back up vocals.  I mean actually singing the entire song.  That kind of flexibility and diversity very rare with in the music industry.  I think it brings added depth to a band.

IMG_1873 IMG_1915 IMG_1935

Check out the bands website www.mastodonrocks.com for any and all things Mastodon.  There are links to all their social media sites, tour dates, and the Mastodon store.
