FOLLOW-UP SINGLE TO THEIR HIT
‘CRAZY’

NEW ALBUM THE FUTURE OUT NOW
STREAM HERE

From Ashes to New have released their new music video for ‘Broken’, the follow-up single to their hit ‘Crazy’, which recently reached #2 on the U.S. Rock Radio chart. The track conveys a message of perseverance and believing in yourself when others try to push you down and hold you back in life. It’s a recurring theme in their music which is very personal to the band.

Their debut album Day One earned the band a Top 10 track at Rock Radio with the single ‘Through It All’.  Following  an extensive album cycle,  the band’s original drummer and co-vocalist both abruptly left the band. Rather than focusing on the setbacks, From Ashes to New forged ahead with a new energy and purpose.

The band, now comprised of frontman/rapper/programmer Matt Brandyberry, guitarist Lance Dowdle, vocalist Danny Case, and drummer Mat Madiro (Trivium) released their second album, The Future earlier this year, via Eleven Seven Music.

The band is touring the U.S. extensively for the rest of the year, with a headline run throughout September and October and are working on plans for a European tour in early 2019.

In addition to their U.S. headline tour, they will be opening for Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin on their autumn arena tour and will also be performing at several festivals, as well as providing direct support for Stone Sour and Papa Roach on select dates.

Country Star MORGAN EVANS Releases Self-Titled EP – Out Today!

SURPRISES FANS WITH POP-UP TOAST TO ANNOUNCE
SELF-TITLED EP, OUT TODAY
STREAM HERE

FEATURING
THE VIBRANT NEW ANTHEM ‘YOUNG AGAIN’
+
TOP 5 US SINGLE ‘KISS SOMEBODY’
WHICH CONTINUES CLIMBING COUNTRY CHARTS

Rising star Morgan Evans made a stop at Tootsie’s on Nashville’s historic Broadway last night to reveal the surprise release of his self-titled EP, out now. In the spirit of the EP’s brand new, live-in-the-moment track, ‘Young Again’, Evans treated fans to an impromptu round of shots to celebrate the moment.

Bringing it full circle, Tootsie’s was the Australia native’s first stop when he visited Nashville for the first time 10 years ago – dropping his bags and arriving on Broadway less than two hours after his plane landed.

“More and more when I experience big life and career moments, they remind me of all the little ones that happened before and made them possible”, Evans told The Tennessean. “I remember that moment as one of the defining ones, thinking, ‘This is the greatest city on Earth.’”

‘Young Again’ has quickly become a fan-favorite at Evans’ dynamic, one-of-a-kind live show where he commands the stage solo with his signature loop pedal. A fun party anthem that throws caution to the wind, the song couples carefree sing-along lyrics with a driving beat.

Produced by Chris DeStefano, the EP is a glimpse at Evans’ Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records full-length debut album, due out this autumn. The talented singer/songwriter co-penned each track on the EP and the forthcoming album.

Previous single ‘Day Drunk’ kicks off the EP,  followed by the stirring and anthemic ‘American’ alongside ‘I Do’, which Billboard acclaimed as a “breezy love song”. The top 5 US debut single ‘Kiss Somebody’ and the brand new track ‘Young Again’ round out the release.

Morgan will very shortly take to the stage for the 12th annual ACM Honors at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and then return home to Australia for a string of SOLD-OUT headline shows. He’ll also hit the road again with Chris Young in September as a special guest on the Losing Sleep World Tour 2018.

For more information and a full list of tour dates, visit MorganEvansMusic.com. Reach out to him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

MORGAN EVANS EP TRACKLISTING
1. ‘Day Drunk’
2. ‘American’
3. ‘I Do’
4. ‘Kiss Somebody’
5. ‘Young Again’

ABOUT MORGAN EVANS:
Praised by Rolling Stone as “a savvy performer with strong songwriting chops” Australian-born rising Country artist Morgan Evans is making waves with ‘Kiss Somebody’ – his debut U.S. single with Warner Music Nashville. Already a Top 5 hit at Country radio, the track has surpassed 45 million on-demand streams while skyrocketing into Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart.

Forging a path as one of the genre’s up-and-coming stars, he has been named one to watch by CMT, SiriusXM, Pandora, Rolling Stone and more.

A bona fide Country force in Australia, he has garnered countless awards and honours, most recently claiming Country Work of the Year for ‘Kiss Somebody’ at the 2018 APRA Music Awards. After sharing the bill with global superstar Taylor Swift, Country hit-maker Cole Swindell and more A-list acts, Evans is featured as a special guest on Chris Young’s Losing Sleep World Tour.

He recently completed his 10 IN 10 US tour, performing 10-straight shows in 10 days including SOLD-OUT headline dates in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York. His highly anticipated debut album is in production, with additional details to be revealed soon.

IMG_1677

ANNOUNCE SEVENTYSEVEN EP
OUT OCTOBER 29TH

‘SOLUTION’ VIDEO OUT NOW
WATCH HERE

From Athens to London, emerging rock outfit 7he 7ouch are set to release their debut EP Seventyseven on October 29th.

The new single ‘Solution’ is out now and is the first track taken from the upcoming EP. Racing with energy and unmissable hooks, the track holds a deeper message, inspired by the political turmoil affecting us across the globe and the extreme ideologies people have on how to deal with the issues.

After leaving their home in the midst of the financial crisis to pursue their dreams in London, 7he 7ouch underwent months of hardship as they found their feet in the city, which has ultimately played a major role in defining their hard hitting, alternative rock sound.

The band, formed of Constantine (vocals), Stelios (guitar), John (lead guitar), Anthony (bass) and Dave (drums), recorded Seventyseven between studios in Athens and London which consists of six explosive tracks, written and performed from their hearts.

With each member bringing influences ranging from old school rock’n’roll through to nu metal, they’ve created a record which pays homage to the past, with huge guitar solos and memorable melodies, whilst ferociously tearing into tomorrow with attitude and force.

7he 7ouch have headlined venues across London, including Camden Assembly, Cargo and Proud and have played Camden Rocks Festival in both 2015 and 2017.

Now stamping their mark as a band to watch, 7he 7ouch will be releasing music throughout 2018 with more shows soon to be announced.

Movie Review by Kristin: THE GUERNSEY LITERARY & POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY

IMG_1667Good morning, everyone!

I was browsing the available content on Netflix this weekend and stumbled upon this cute little movie, THE GUERNSEY LITERARY & POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY.

SYNOPSIS: In the aftermath of World War II, a writer forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war.

I’ve been so impressed with the quality content Netflix has included in their library lately. I’m a sucker for movies and a sucker for books, so this one was a no-brainer for me. The cast was great and the storyline was interesting. The story is set in the 1940’s and follows the characters retelling their experiences of Nazi Occupied Guernsey to London author, Juliet Ashton. While she intends to write an article about the society and their experiences, she finds and values their friendship even more. She begins to reevaluate what she wants for her own life and helps the group find some sort of peace once they open up about the loss of a friend.

The scenery in the film was absolutely lovely and we get a glimpse of England (for those of us who have never had the pleasure of visiting). The performances were great in this. Surprisingly, Kate Winslet was slated to portray Juliet Ashton, but she dropped out of the project before filming began. Honestly, as much as I love Kate Winslet as an actress and human being, I can’t imagine anyone else playing this role other than Lily James. She really embraced the role and gave such an endearing performance.

THE GUERNSEY LITERARY & POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY does run a bit long — it sits at 124 minutes. It does include some drama, some comedy, a few flashbacks and the recipe for an old-fashioned romance, so it’s not difficult to hold your interest (in my opinion).

This is truly a beautiful story of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost.

Canadian alt-pop quartet ROMES have released their brand new Beyonce-inspired track Out Of It, out now via Five Seven Music. This is the first taste of their upcoming second album, the follow-up to their self-titled 2017 debut.

‘Out Of It’ was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, Fitz and the Tantrums, M83) and the official music video was directed by drummer Nicolas Amadeus in Northern Ontario, Canada.

“We’ve been playing ‘Out Of It’ at our shows this year and have always had people come up to us after the shows, asking what it was. Inspired by the fans passion for the song, we decided to go back into the studio with Tony and record a studio version”, frontman Jacob Alexander explains. “The writing was inspired by Beyonce. I just imagine Queen B on stage doing that leg move she does, belting out the lyrics”.

ROMES is comprised of brothers Jacob Alexander (vocals) and Nicolas Amadeus (drums), Andrew Keyes (bass) and James Tebbitt (guitar). The childhood friends met while attending school in Ireland, connecting over their mutual passion for rock music and undeniable chemistry as musicians.

Perfecting their inimitable sound since their adolescent years, ROMES effortlessly documents true emotion in their songs while accenting each member’s personalities to create irresistible, eclectic music.

Their 2017 eponymous release, ROMES features breakout hit songs  ‘Believeand ‘Summer Soundand was praised by Billboard for its “infectious groove”.

ANNOUNCE FIRST EVER EUROPEAN TOUR
WITH
THREE DAYS GRACE

WATCH A PREVIEW OF BAD WOLVES LIVE HERE

INCLUDING A DATE AT LONDON’S SHEPHERD’S BUSH EMPIRE OCTOBER 7TH

NEW SINGLE ‘HEAR ME NOW’ FT. DIAMANTE IS OUT NOW!
WATCH IT HERE

Due to overwhelming fan demand Bad Wolves – the US rock band who emerged as the #1 breakout act globally this year – have moved forward their touring plans and announced that their first ever UK & European shows will happen this October alongside Three Days Grace.

The tour includes dates all across Europe including Portsmouth, Nottingham, Birmingham, Bristol, London, Glasgow and Manchester in the UK. Tickets are on sale now and available at See Tickets.

Bad Wolves vocalist Tommy Vext states: “Last year when I stood in for 5fdp on a few of their shows I was reminded how passionate and loyal European fans are. When BW released ‘Zombie’ earlier this year we got the same, great response and couldn’t believe the massive wave of support from all over Europe, especially given that we’re a new band. Not a day has gone by that we don’t get tons of messages from fans demanding for us to come over. Originally, we were planning to do so in 2019 but it became clear that the time is now and we had to find a way. Coincidingly, Three Days Grace invited us to join them in Europe this Fall so we didn’t think twice and here we are. We couldn’t be more excited and can’t wait to see all of you out there at the shows.”

Adds Bad Wolves manager Zoltan Bathory, guitarist for Five Finger Death Punch: “I don’t think most people expected Bad Wolves to blow up around the world like they have this year, but to me it wasn’t really a shocker. They have that special sauce you can’t manufacture. You have to go and see them to understand the way they connect with people. We took them on the road in the US and they’ve been killin’ it night after night. They are the real deal, Canada and Europe are going to love them.”

Earlier this year the band released their version of The Cranberries ‘Zombie’, which soared to success all over the world, and has been certified Gold in the United States and Australia as well as Platinum in Canada. The track has topped charts worldwide, including the U.S. iTunes overall and rock charts, Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, Spotify’s Global Viral 50, both the UK Rock Chart and Metal Chart, and the Shazam charts while also reigning atop the Canadian and American Rock radio charts for eight and three straight weeks, respectively.

The official music video, a tribute to the late singer Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries and an homage to the original, has garnered over 125 million views across platforms and in June this year, Bad Wolves presented a $250,000 check to Dolores O’Riordan’s four children, fulfilling the promise to donate all of their proceeds.

The follow up single ‘Hear Me Now’ feat. Diamante is also quickly climbing up the charts. Bad Wolves are currently touring North America with heavyweights Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin on the biggest US rock tour of summer 2018 and, as a special treat for fans, Diamante is performing “Hear Me Now” live with Bad Wolves every show.

Bad Wolves’ debut album Disobey, released in the Spring via Eleven Seven Music, achieved the following chart positions in the USA: #22-Billboard Top 200, #2-Hard Rock Chart, #4- Rock chart, #8-on the Top Current Albums Chart. In the UK, the album reached #1 on the official Rock and Metal charts, as well as #1 on the iTunes Rock and Metal charts (also in Germany and France). In addition, the album reached #1 in a total of 15 countries across Europe, including Holland, Ireland, Finland, Belgium and many more. The band has amassed over 60 million track streams, 400,000+ downloads to date and, mainstream media such as BBC, The Times, The Sun and The Guardian in the UK, as well as great support from rock and metal media worldwide.

DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED AUGUST 31st

UK/EUROPE HEADLINE TOUR
LONDON, KOKO – OCTOBER 25th

LILY AHLBERG (ALL DATES) & DUSKY GREY (UK ONLY)
ANNOUNCED AS SUPPORT

Rising pop star Emma Blackery has released her brand new single ‘Take Me Out’, taken from her forthcoming debut album Villains out August 31st through RWG Records.

‘Take Me Out’ has featured on six Spotify ‘New Music Friday’ playlists today including the UK. It’s a huge pop banger stacked with attitude and boasting a massive chorus.

Regarding the single Emma says, “I’m really excited for everyone to hear it. It’s a song I really connect with and one of my favourites from Villains. The song deals with feelings of paranoia when you are feeling exposed and isolated by your friends.”

Toby Scott (Little Mix, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays) has produced ‘Take Me Out’, and was also behind Emma’s recent singles ‘Icarus’, ‘Agenda’ and ‘Dirt’, which are all taken from her forthcoming album Villains.

Villains is a record inspired by a period of reflection and one that invites listeners on Emma’s journey from, as she explains, “feeling so paranoid that I risked becoming a person I didn’t like, to letting go of all of that hurt”.

The atmospheric album opener ‘Villains Pt. 1’ sees her declare, “I am a nightmare… designed to destroy” over a beat that drips with menace. Elsewhere, ‘Petty’ (“You used to call me pretty, then you took out the “r””) flirts with tropical house, and her restrained vocal on ballad ‘What I Felt With You’ simmers with longing. By the album’s explosive closer, ‘Villains Pt. 2’, Emma is forced to consider her own part in her downfall, asking, “Am I kidding myself, blaming somebody else, I’m my own biggest villain.” On creating the album Emma says, “Writing the album was so cathartic. Music is my therapy.”

In support of the album’s release the Essex-born singer has announced an HMV in-store tour where she will be signing copies of Villains and performing songs from the album live. HMV will be stocking exclusive yellow edition color vinyl of the new album and the tour will call at seven stores across the country.

Following this Emma will be head out on an extensive headline tour across the UK and Europe, which will finish with a headline show at London’s KOKO on October 25th. Full Emma Blackery tour dates can be found below:

All we do now is fight and get back together again; with the memories of the glory days being the only thing bringing us back to each other. The love is still there but I realize its no longer helping either of us, but rather taking over our days and nights with worry, anger and fear. It’s a love for things we did together and the feeling we gave each other, but not for the other person themselves. The song is the realization of this but wanting to retreat to ‘our place’ and cling on for a few more days in the vague hope that we can regain an element of the past and not let us be washed away by the flood.”

‘It Rains’ is the debut single from Archie Faulks, who first rose to prominence under the moniker Tenterhook in 2014. As Tenterhook he enjoyed tearaway success over the course of two EPs, which spawned radio hits that led him to be featured as Zane Lowe’s Next Hype on Radio 1, while also receiving support from BBC 6Music and Radio X. He became a worldwide No.1 on Hype Machine, clocked up millions of plays on Spotify and completed a number of tours across the UK and Europe playing with the likes of Asgeir and Rhodes.

Explaining the transition from Tenterhook he says, “I first started releasing music when I was 18, with hindsight perhaps it was a little too soon and I wasn’t happy with the trajectory I was heading in both artistically and mentally.”

He continues on the time away spent focusing on himself musically and lyrically, “I’ve been writing all the new material on my own, trying to create an honest and heartfelt record to both laugh and cry to. I felt like going under my own name so that I no longer had a barrier to hide behind, it’s forced me to face my own truths and make some difficult life choices which has hopefully made me a better songwriter and person.”

Europe got a sneak peak of the new Archie Faulks sound earlier this year when he played a number of shows with Isaac Gracie that went down a storm. To celebrate the release of ‘It Rains’, he will play his first ever headline show as Archie Faulks at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on September 4th. Tickets are on-sale now via Music Glue.
