HELLO KITTY Makes itself at Home as Part of the Universal Studios Hollywood Theme Park Family

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Abrand new HELLO KITTY store opened inside Universal Studios Hollywood with exclusive merchandise making Hello Kitty right at home in the theme park.

The theme park is already a must-see for tourist, but with Hello Kitty exclusives, fans of the theme park have even more to look forward to the next time they visit the park.

It may be just a small addition to the wonderful attractions of Universal Studios Hollywood, but it adds a new reason for even more fans to attend.

With Hello Kitty making itself a part of “King Kong,” “Psycho,” “E.T.,” “Jaws” and “Back to the Future,” fans young and old have a chance to experience the fascinating feline in a new way.

The shop’s exclusives sell out fast so fans need to be sure to grab them while they last, and go early to be able to have their choice of exclusive products.

Many of the fan favorites are also available from many of the Sanrio characters those young and young at heart have adored for years.

Some baked goodies are also available in the shape of Sanrio favorites.

Along with Hello Kitty, the animation studio store portion offers some incredible merchandise from many Illumination Entertainment films.

Many more additions to the park are to come, but for now enjoy Hogmeade at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Simpson’s at Springfield, USA and the many attractions available throughout the park.

American rock band Escape the Fate are excited to share the music video for their latest single ‘Broken Heart’, which features on the forthcoming studio album I Am Human, out March 30th via better Noise Record/Eleven Seven.

Directed by Frankie Nasso (Body Count, Steel Panther) and featuring an array of stunning camera work, the video for ‘Broken Heart’ pairs its slick production quality with the intense theme of the track which tackles the inner, emotional tug-of-war of a romantic breakup and the gratifying relief of finally moving on.


Having recently completed their UK/European headline tour, Escape The Fate are now set to return to Northern America for a number of headline appearances, dates supporting labelmates Papa Roach, as well as a run of shows in Australia and New Zealand celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their classic album, This War Is Ours. Tickets for all dates are on sale now with more info to be found on Escape the Fate’s official website HERE.

The new album I Am Human was produced by GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer Howard Benson [My Chemical Romance, Adam Lambert], and sees an evolution of Escape the Fate’s sound that brings the band back to the excitement of their roots.

People will always undoubtedly bond over the experiences of love, loss, and life. On the new album, Escape The Fate transmit a raw, real, and relatable narrative through airtight songcraft, lyrical honesty, and stadium-worthy delivery indicative of a shared human experience.

“I hope this album can be the soundtrack to good times and memories our fans create,” says lead vocalist Craig Mabbit. “I hope they get their own emotions out singing these songs with us at shows. I hope it’s part of the healing process. That’s what these stories do for us.”

I Am Human is available to pre-order now HERE, and you can check out the lyric videos to the new tracks ‘Do You Love Me?’, ‘I Am Human’ and ‘Empire’ below.

Death Team’s MAYKA Releases Debut Single ‘Rich’






Swedish producer and singer MAYKA has today released her debut single ‘Rich’ through Warner Music.

Opening with sultry future bass before breaking into a huge anthemic pop chorus, ‘Rich’ finds MAYKA celebrating the true finer things in life including love, relationships and friendships while casting away materialistic ideologies. The single is produced by LIOHN who also was behind Axwell & Ingrosso’s smash hits ‘More Than You Know’ and ‘Renegade’.

Regarding the single MAYKA says, “From the beginning ‘Rich’ was about a relationship scenario – I pictured hanging with someone who’s just showing off, bragging and being fake. But lately the song feels more like a message from my subconscious to myself – that I’m the one who should stop aiming for superficial goals like money and success. Either way it’s about being more real and authentic, focusing on the joy of living, sharing and creating instead of chasing highs and trying to be something you’re not. Soundwise I think it feels like a perfect mix between MGMT, Lorde and Britney Spears. But with a little nice bass, hip-hop and trap stuff going on.”

The single marks the first release of the solo project from Mayka Edd, one half of the acclaimed electro-pop-rap duo Death Team, who have gained high profile support from the likes of Charli XCX, The Guardian, Noisey, SPIN Magazine, DIY among many others over a string of fantastic singles.

Before Death Team, Mayka first rose to prominence in dance music as a DJ and producer playing at parties across the US and Asia, while also running her own show on Swedish Radio P3.

She became obsessively dedicated to learning everything she possibly could about production, mixing and DJing, but being a female in the male-dominated electronic music scene meant that she was all too often considered to be a novelty rather than an artist who deserved equal respect. Rather than break in the face of adversity, Mayka resolved to battle back against a culture ruled by mansplaining DJs.

Now as a solo artist she hopes to inspire a new wave of young female talent to pursue their own passion projects in the arts and beyond. The essence of her message is simple:

Follow your dreams, don’t be afraid to fail, be who you want to be, and carve out your own place in society.
