BRIAN SETZER, LEE ROCKER AND SLIM JIM PHANTOM RETURN TO CELEBRATE THEIR 40TH ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR WITH NEW ALBUM AND CONCERT TOUR


The  STRAY CATS  will release  40 --their first new album in 26 years--this  Friday, May 24  on the heels of three singles they've recently issued from the album: " Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me)," "Rock It Off"  and  "Cry Danger,"  the latter of which was premiered this past Friday at  Guitar World .    Brian Setzer  (guitar, vocals),  Lee Rocker  (bass, vocals) and  Slim Jim Phantom  (drums, vocals)--original founding members of the iconic and acclaimed American rock and roll trio--are celebrating their  40th anniversary  in  2019  with  40  and a tour that's hitting the  U.S . and  Europe  (*see tour dates below). The album is being released by  Surfdog Records  and distributed by  BMG  (CD, vinyl, digital), with an exclusive indie-store edition of the album--colored vinyl, with a double-sided 24x12 poster--arriving on  May 24.  " Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me)," "Rock It Off"  and "Cry Danger"  are available now as instant grat tracks with a pre-order of the  album .  The all revved up and red-hot  STRAY CATS  recorded  40  at  Blackbird Studios  in  Nashville  in late  2018  following their first North American shows in 10 years, with four concerts including sold-out headlining shows in  Las Vegas  and the  PacificAmphitheatre  in  Costa   Mesa ,  CA  before wildly enthusiastic audiences. Still buzzing from the thrill of playing together again and the crowd response, they went into the studio with producer  Peter Collins  (Rush, Bon Jovi, The Brian Setzer Orchestra) and engineer  Vance Powell  (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Arctic Monkeys). There are a dozen original songs that comprise the album. Read the first press release about the album  here , which includes quotes from the band and the track listing. Watch the band and album producer  Peter Collins  in the studio discussing the making of the album  here .  Early critical acclaim for  40  is rolling in:   "The album brims with bracing, stripped-down rockers like 'Cat Fight (Over a Dog Like Me),' 'Mean Pickin' Mama' and 'Devil Train,' and every track boasts a widescreen riff and virtuoso guitar solo. But the band also serves up some new sounds with the riff rocker 'Cry Danger' (co-written with Mike Campbell) and the punk-like 'I'll Be Looking Out for You.'"    --Joe Bosso,    Guitar Player   , May 2019    "Four decades later, Stray Cats are ready to 'Rock It Off' with the same three basic ingredients they've always used: Setzer's twangy Gretsch guitar, drummer Slim Jim Phantom's elemental thumping and Lee Rocker's expertly slapped upright bass...On the standout 'Cry Danger,' the Cats venture out of their '50s comfort zone and move boldly into '60s garage-rock territory. The track features an intro guitar riff that'll make any Beatles fan instantly think of 'Day Tripper.'"    --Kenneth Partridge,    Billboard   , 4/25/19   The  STRAY CATS  begin their select U.S. dates presented by  SiriusXM  on  August 3 on the heels of June and July overseas shows.

Modern Metal Outfit SHATTERED SUN Reveals Music Video for Brand New Track "Shades of Melodie"

Watch Now via Outburn

GoFundMe Launched for Follow Up to Acclaimed Debut Full-Length, Hope Within Hatred Contribute Here

Texas melodic metal sextet  SHATTERED SUN  burst onto the scene in 2016 with the release of their debut full-length album,  Hope Within Hatred -  debuting at #1 on the CMJ Loud Rock charts, Top 20 on the iTunes Metal chart and Top 50 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. In the same year, the band scored a coveted spot on the biggest touring festival in rock and metal music history, the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. After completing tours with artists like  Testament, Exodus, Soilwork, Soulfly  and  Scar Symmetry  and additional performances at Welcome to Rockville Festival and New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, the band continued proving their potency in 2018 on the legendary Vans Warped Tour - cementing their status as one of the breakout success stories in rising metal at the time.  Then suddenly that year,  SHATTERED SUN  vocalist Marcos Leal received news about his greatest gift yet - he and his partner Michelle would welcome their first child, a daughter. This, in addition to other band members expanding their own families and experiencing significant life changes, lead to a brief hiatus for the group.  Now,  SHATTERED SUN  have returned with a refreshed line-up (including new members Sebastian Elizondo of  Darkness Divided  and Juan "PB" Hinojosa of  Shaping the Legacy  and formerly of  Upon a Burning Body ), new music and a matured sound, without sacrificing the roots of the melodic metal that put their name on the map. Today, the band is thrilled to reveal their first new music to impact in three years, a heavy-yet-heartfelt track entitled "Shades of Melodie", written for and dedicated to Marcos Leal's baby daughter, Melodie.  "Shades of Melodie" premiered this morning via Corpus Christi, TX commercial rock station C101, and right now, its coinciding music video - filmed and directed by Matthew Guajardo - can be viewed for the first time via  Outburn . Watch here:  https://outburn.com/interviews/shattered-sun-reinvented/   Vocalist Marcos Leal says about the song,  "This song is particularly special to me given it's about my daughter Melodie. It's safe to say that becoming a father changes a man - it becomes your every living and dying breath to be the guide and protector to your child. I know a lot of people can relate to the message of this song and I'm excited for you all to get a taste of the new era of    SHATTERED SUN   !"   Guitarist and backing vocalist Jessie Santos adds,  "After a short-lived hiatus, I'm pleased to show our devoted followers a reborn    SHATTERED SUN    with an album soon to be released and music video showcasing our first single. Heartfelt, heavy music awaits those who have stood by our side."   While   S HATTERED SUN  are in the midst of preparing for the release of their new, currently-untitled album, many aspects of recording and other requirements still need to be completed.

We are nothing without our fans behind us! Thank you!   Catch  SHATTERED SUN  performing live at Corpus Christi, TX's House of Rock on July 12! The band is currently planning to hit the road this summer on tour - stay tuned for details!

Texas melodic metal sextet SHATTERED SUN burst onto the scene in 2016 with the release of their debut full-length album, Hope Within Hatred - debuting at #1 on the CMJ Loud Rock charts, Top 20 on the iTunes Metal chart and Top 50 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. In the same year, the band scored a coveted spot on the biggest touring festival in rock and metal music history, the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. After completing tours with artists like Testament, Exodus, Soilwork, Soulfly and Scar Symmetry and additional performances at Welcome to Rockville Festival and New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, the band continued proving their potency in 2018 on the legendary Vans Warped Tour - cementing their status as one of the breakout success stories in rising metal at the time.

Then suddenly that year, SHATTERED SUN vocalist Marcos Leal received news about his greatest gift yet - he and his partner Michelle would welcome their first child, a daughter. This, in addition to other band members expanding their own families and experiencing significant life changes, lead to a brief hiatus for the group.

Now, SHATTERED SUN have returned with a refreshed line-up (including new members Sebastian Elizondo of Darkness Divided and Juan "PB" Hinojosa of Shaping the Legacy and formerly of Upon a Burning Body), new music and a matured sound, without sacrificing the roots of the melodic metal that put their name on the map. Today, the band is thrilled to reveal their first new music to impact in three years, a heavy-yet-heartfelt track entitled "Shades of Melodie", written for and dedicated to Marcos Leal's baby daughter, Melodie.

"Shades of Melodie" premiered this morning via Corpus Christi, TX commercial rock station C101, and right now, its coinciding music video - filmed and directed by Matthew Guajardo - can be viewed for the first time via Outburn. Watch here: https://outburn.com/interviews/shattered-sun-reinvented/

Vocalist Marcos Leal says about the song, "This song is particularly special to me given it's about my daughter Melodie. It's safe to say that becoming a father changes a man - it becomes your every living and dying breath to be the guide and protector to your child. I know a lot of people can relate to the message of this song and I'm excited for you all to get a taste of the new era of SHATTERED SUN!"

Guitarist and backing vocalist Jessie Santos adds, "After a short-lived hiatus, I'm pleased to show our devoted followers a reborn SHATTERED SUN with an album soon to be released and music video showcasing our first single. Heartfelt, heavy music awaits those who have stood by our side."

While SHATTERED SUN are in the midst of preparing for the release of their new, currently-untitled album, many aspects of recording and other requirements still need to be completed. As the band is currently working independently and without label assistance, they've turned to their dedicated fans to contribute to the finalization process with new album pre-orders and bundle purchases. 100% of these funds will go towards the completion and release of the album.

The pre-order and contribution campaign has been launched via GoFundMe, and can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/shatteredsun3

The GoFundMe campaign not only includes an instant download of "Shades of Melodie" upon contribution/pre-order, but also allows fans to hear the album in full a week before its pending release date.

EXHORDER WRAPS RECORDING ON FIRST ALBUM IN 27 YEARS

*BAND ANNOUNCES FORTHCOMING U.S. TOUR*

xh.png
May 17, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA – After 27 years of waiting, fans can rejoice as New Orleans’ face-melting thrash legends  EXHORDER  will be releasing their forever-awaited 3rd studio album later this year. The band has officially wrapped recording of their first record since the long celebrated ‘92 classic The Law .  EXHORDER  will celebrate their return with a festival date in Europe and a North American tour with  KATAKLYSM  in September. Dates are coming soon.   Commenting on the long journey to recording their 3rd record, the band’s founding guitarist  Vinnie La Bella  says,  “27 years? Man, that's a big number! A lot has transpired over the course of such an extended amount of time, and this record touches on it all. There is material on this record that is literally 27 years old along with material that was written just 6 months ago, and everything in between. There are truly no words to express the emotions which are connected with this moment. And that's pretty convenient because I prefer to do my talking in the ring/stage anyway. But the people who really made this what it is cannot go without mention: My incredible band mates; Simon and crew at AISA Management; all at Nuclear Blast Records; and Duane Simoneaux at OCD Recording, Jens Bogren was an unquestionable genius! So honored to have him on this. This is, without a doubt for the first time in our career, the album we intended to give you. Production, sound, art, it's all there, with no compromise! I'm eternally grateful for all who helped make it happen. And to all that have waited for it, prayed for it, begged for it, or even dreaded this moment, much love and I'll see you in the "Ring!"”     EXHORDER ’s enduring legacy began in the mid-80’s when they defined the sound of Louisiana thrash and groove metal. Their initial formation was short lived, lasting nearly a decade with two critically acclaimed, classic albums, but their impact on the metal genre can be felt through a generation of bands that followed.  EXHORDER  dissolved in the mid-90’s but briefly reunited in 2011. Now, the band has returned to reclaim their throne of NOLA metal with their awaited new album and an all-star line-up that includes  Kyle Thomas  (founding vocalist;  TROUBLE ,  HEAVY AS TEXAS ),  Vinnie La Bella  (founding guitarist),  Marzi Montazeri  (guitarist; ex- SUPERJOINT RITUAL , ex- PHIL ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS,HEAVY AS TEXAS ),  Jason VieBrooks  (bassist since 2011;  HEATHEN ,  GRIP INC. ) and  Sasha Horn (drummer;  FORBIDDEN ).

They have songs that aim to reach Metallica heights... Divided reminds me of records like Mastodon's Crack The Skye and Baroness' Yellow & Green; records where 'underground' metal bands really swung for the fences and tried to imitate the leap Metallica had made from Kill 'Em All to Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets." - BrooklynVegan    "...Divided By Darkness presents an interpretation of the group's distinct sound that is simultaneously heavier and yet more accessible than ever before. Brimming with soaring vocals, introspective lyrics, and fiery, impassioned riffs, this album is undoubtedly a major step forward for    SPIRIT ADRIFT   , and yet again elevate them to the forefront of the scene in the months to come." - Invisible Oranges    https://www.spiritadrift.com    https://www.facebook.com/SpiritAdrift    http://spiritadrift.bigcartel.com    http://www.20buckspin.com    https://listen.20buckspin.com    http://www.facebook.com/20buckspin    http://www.twitter.com/20buckspinlabel

Canadian noise rockers KEN mode will kick off their previously announced North American tour on Tuesday, May 21 in Regina, SK and will conclude on June 3 in Denver, CO. The tour will include  some festival appearances as well as two opening slots for INTER ARMA. The full itinerary is as follows:

KEN mode Tour Dates: 
05.21: Regina, SK @ The Exchange (TICKETS // EVENT LINK)
05.22: Edmonton, AB @ Starlight (TICKETS // EVENT LINK)
05/24: Vancouver, BC @ Rickshaw Theatre (Modified Ghost Festival) (TICKETS // EVENT LINK)

06/02: Salt Lake City, UT @ Kilby Ct (TICKETS // EVENT LINK)*
06/03: Denver, CO @ Hi Dive (TICKETS)
* w/ INTER ARMA

Additionally, KEN mode have been nominated for an Independent Music Award for Best Album in the Metal/Hardcore category for their latest effort, 'Loved,' which was also nominated for a JUNO Award (Canadian Grammy) earlier this year. KEN mode previously won the JUNO in 2012, and have a total of four nominations under their belt. 

KEN mode will be touring in support of their JUNO-nominated album, 'Loved,' which was released in August 2018 via Season of Mist. The album can be streamed HERE.

K ill  E veryone  N ow mode - an ethos legendary Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins would use to describe the band’s state of mind while taking the stage for the endless touring cycle of their genre defying classic album, ‘My War’. This proved to be the psychological foundation / attitude for the project brothers Jesse and Shane Matthewson formed in 1999 in their home of Winnipeg, Canada and that would see them spread a manic form of metal and hardcore infused with noise rock for their entire adult lives.   Cutting their teeth in the early aughts with a pair of records ‘Mongrel’ (2003) and ‘Reprisal’ (2006),  KEN mode  rose from underground notoriety with their JUNO award winning album ‘Venerable’ in 2011. This marked a decided shift for the band, embarking on an unrelenting touring schedule for the following five years with acts such as RUSSIAN CIRCLES, TORCHE, DEAFHEAVEN, KYLESA, REVOCATION and TODAY IS THE DAY, followed up by Season of Mist-released full lengths ’Entrench’ (2013) and ‘Success’ (2015). Those records saw the band hit a multitude of major festivals like SXSW, Hellfest Open Air, CMJ Festival, Pitchfork Festival Chicago, Hopscotch Festival, and Roadburn Festival; and even doing live sessions for renowned institutions such as BBC Radio 1 and Daytrotter.   But burnout was inevitable, and in 2016  KEN mode  took a step back to regroup. Core members Shane and Jesse formed their own music business management services company, MKM Management, while bassist Scott Hamilton released records with his other bands ADOLYNE and GREYLIGHT DISTRICT. In 2017 the band began writing with a newfound focus and desire, in the most collaborative effort they have ever put together.   ‘Loved’, the band’s brand new vicious full length may be the  KEN mode ’s quintessential statement of violence and despair made sonic. Drawing from not only the desperate noise and industrial sonics of the ‘80s and ‘90s, the band mixes in the decidedly more extreme tone and presence of death and black metal, expertly captured by Andrew Schneider’s (UNSANE, CAVE IN, DAUGHTERS) sick vision of noise and girth. ‘Loved’ represents yet another pivot point in the group’s sound, a departure from the indie/noise punk focused ‘ Success ’ album. The group delves deeper and darker than ever before.  'Loved' can be purchased at  THIS LOCATION .

BERTHOLD CITY: LA Hardcore Act With Members Of Strife, Internal Affairs, And More To Release What Time Takes EP Via WAR Records

"Beware The Snakes" Premiered At No Echo + Preorders Posted

[photo by Todd Pollock]  Los Angeles-based  BERTHOLD CITY , founded by veterans of the straightedge hardcore scene through playing with Strife, World Be Free, Internal Affairs, Allegiance, and more, presents their latest release,  What Time Takes . As the new EP is locked for release via WAR Records in mid-June, the lead single, "Beware The Snakes," has been premiered through No Echo.   BERTHOLD CITY  returns less than a year after the release of their  Moment Of Truth  debut EP with a brand new four-song 7".  What Time Takes  delivers a heavy dose of pissed-off, anthemic, straight edge hardcore, with all four tracks clocking in at just over seven minutes.  What Time Takes  was recorded and mixed by Aaron Jamili at Wormhole Studios and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, Candy), and its layout and design handled by Jeremy Dean.  Prime hardcore/punk outlet No Echo has posted an interview with band founder and WAR Records owner Andrew Kline (Strife, World Be Free) alongside the first single, "Beware The Snakes." The interview includes on the track, "Lyrically, 'Beware the Snakes' is like a modern version of 'Don't Tread On Me.' I think we have all had a person in our lives that mistakes your kindness for weakness and tries to take advantage of you because you are always there when they need something from you. This song is about identifying all of the two-faced snakes and cutting them out of your life. Bite back!"   Hear BERTHOLD CITY's "Beware The Snakes" at No Echo at    THIS LOCATION   .    What Time Takes  will see release on 7" vinyl EP and digital platforms June 14th via WAR Records. Find preorders at the label webshop   HERE   and Bandcamp   HERE  .

The band immediately recorded a three-song demo, written in the musical and lyrical spirit of the seminal Judge 7", which began their path into the hardcore scene. Less than a year later, they issued their debut EP,  Moment Of Truth , which was tracked by Aaron Jamili at Wormhole Studios, then mastered by Don Fury (Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, Youth Of Today), and met with positive reactions from media and fans abroad.

This album is like our child, it grew, it learned and became stronger and stronger. Every piece of the album is saturated with the mystical nature of Ukraine. We wrote most of the songs in our hometown Lutsk - the mystical center of Ukraine. The power of the region remained and still is the same for ages.

DESTRUCTION Cover Artwork For Born To Perish Released

Legendary German thrashers,  DESTRUCTION , have revealed the cover artwork to their upcoming 17th studio album ,  Born To Perish .  This stunning visualization was created by acclaimed artist  Gyula  from Hungary,  who has also created artwork for  ANNIHLATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, STRATOVARIUS, TANKARD  and many more.  He has also produced a trailer where you can follow the creation of the artwork. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyOZVrtWr_o   The album will be released on August 9th, 2019 via  Nuclear Blast.    Gyula  states  "Schmier wanted to get a simple and different image than my previous    DESTRUCTION    covers. When we discussed the new concept, I was happy with this approach because I had the chance to use a different tool, no painting but ink-drawing style.    When the band mentioned the album title, I got the idea of a crest composition without the typical brave lion or eagle but vultures with two heads and we filled the image with several symbols. I love this   DESTRUCTION    cover - maybe my fave I did for them so far!"   Mastermind  Schmier  adds:  "We wanted something basic this time. I had something like an emblem in mind, a stamp, a   DESTRUCTION    coat of arms. We had so many great colorful graphical covers in the past, this dark album title needed something different. This record marks the debut of the four piece    DESTRUCTION   again, I am very happy with the result and that the great    Gyula    understood right away what direction we wanna go - the album is vicious, dark and hard hitting, the cover-art is the perfect prelude for that!“     Born To Perish   was recorded in January & February 2019 with  VO Pulver (PRO-PAIN, BURNING WITCHES, NERVOSA etc.)   at  Little Creek Studios in Switzerland  and is the first  DESTRUCTION  album featuring  Randy Black  on the drums and new 2nd guitar shredder  Damir Eskic!     Check out this short teaser and listen to the very first snippets of the upcoming album:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMf6eJwFlpE    Tour dates:  21.06.              D         Duisburg - Rage Against Racism 06.07.              HR       Pula - GoatHell Metal Fest 07. - 10.08.     CZ        Jaroměř - Brutal Assault 08. - 10.08.     D         Schlotheim - Party.San Open Air 16.08.              BG       Varna - Rock Fest 31.08.              A          Breitenstein - Metal Escalation Festival    »Killfest 2019 - Part II«   w/ OVERKILL, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM  12.09.              P          Porto - Hard Club 13.09.              E          Madrid - La Riviera 14.09.              E          Barcelona - Salamandra 17.09.              D         Saarbrücken - Garage 18.09.              D         Nuremberg - Hirsch 19.09.              D         Oberhausen - Turbinenhalle 22.09.              D         Herford - X 23.09.              D         Wiesbaden - Schlachthof 24.09.              B          Antwerp - Trix   08./09.11.       D         Weissenhäusser Strand/Ostsee - Metal Hammer Paradise 07.12.              D         Balingen - Crazy X-Mas  More info coming soon.

Metal Sucks (April 9, 2019)

The band--Dave Tierney, lead vocals/rhythm guitar; Lorne Behrman, lead guitar, vocals; Sam Hariss, bass/vocals; and Darren Fried, drums/vocals--will celebrate the album's May 24 release that day by hosting a free album release/listening party at the The Bowery Electric bar with featured drink specials, a curated DJ set by Sam Hariss and a performance by Hipp Pipps. For further details and to RSVP, please visit https://www.facebook.com/events/432319327586269/.

IN BORROWED SHOES, ON BORROWED TIME follows the band's two indie singles,"Love to Leave" and "Slather," which were backed by airplay onNYC's FM rock station Q104.3 and Sirius XM's Little Steven's Underground GarageClassic Rock magazine (U.K) also featured the band's single"Slather" on their May 2018 issue's compilation CD. The new album was produced by Matt Chiaravalle (Courtney Love, Debbie Harry) and includes guest appearances from the likes of Alejandro Escovedo on guest vocals; the legendary horn section The Uptown Horns (Rolling Stones, James Brown); Brian Hurd of beloved blues bashers Daddy Long Legs on harmonica; Rob Clores (The Black Crowes) on keyboards; and boogie chanteuse Liza Colby on the gospel vocals. Early critical acclaim is rolling in:

"At 10 ferocious tracks, the records plays like a quick strike that leaves you wanting more. One of the best things I could say about In Borrowed Shoes, On Borrowed Time is that as each song ends you find yourself singing the chorus in your head. The deeper you dig, the more you listen, you discover layers and a musicianship that proves, much like their influences, it takes a lot of talent to sound that raw."
