AHHHHHH!!!

The new trailer for CREED II was released today and it looks incredible! I love Michael B. Jordan as an actor and who doesn’t love the OG, Sylvester Stallone?? I mean, right?? I was a huge fan of CREED, and the follow-up film looks to be just as captivating. Add some DMX music to the mix and you have a recipe for a highly anticipated movie!

What are your thoughts? Did you hate it or love it? Let me know!

SYNOPSIS: Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

VISTA Releases New Single “Born For Blood”

Electronic alt rock band VISTA are not anywhere near slowing down their momentum. Fresh off the completion of their third US tour, “The Bloodlust Tour,” multiple support dates with Set It Off, and a music video for their last single “Witch Hunt”, VISTA has officially released a new single, titled “Born For Blood,” out on all digital platforms NOW. Recorded and produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount of ZK Productions (Mayday Parade, Set It Off), “Born For Blood,” a wildly upbeat, distortion-laced, electronic-infused alternative rock track explores themes of hunger, determination, and empowerment. The stand-alone single is a true testament to VISTA’s evolution this year, filled with their signature layered vocals, gritty production, and raw passion. “Born For Blood” will be the final release for their current EP cycle, and the band recently returned to the studio to begin working on their 3rd record. Prior to this release, they dropped their last single “Witch Hunt” in May, which quickly became the band’s most-streamed song on Spotify, racking up 72,000+ streams as of yet.

An electronically-tinged alternative rock band, NY-based outfit VISTA originally formed in late 2015. Comprised of lead vocalist Hope Vista and guitarist Greg Almeida, the band combines both modern alternative rock and electronic influences to create their unique anthemic sound. VISTA released their debut 4-track EP “VERSUS” shortly after their original inception, in which their debut single “On The Brink” debuted worldwide on idobi radio. Their name hasn’t been shy in the press, since; the band has garnered praise from outlets such as Alternative Press, Rock Sound, Substream, and AXS. Since the start of 2017, VISTA has supported Fueled By Ramen artist Against The Current at Irving Plaza, gained idobi rotation with their single “Henchmen,” an anti-oppression anthem, and completed two headlining tours. Their most recent 7-track EP, “Long Live,” released in July 2017, lyrically centralizes around the theme of finding an oasis in a dystopian society. “Long Live” immediately made its’ way onto three different iTunes Alternative charts and sparked the completion of two promotional tours, in August and November, respectively. Most recently in 2018, VISTA released their recent single “Witch Hunt” (produced by ZK Productions), completed their third US tour “The Bloodlust Tour,” played a date of the Vans Warped Tour in New York, played multiple September support dates with Set It Off (Fearless Records), “Witch Hunt” premiered worldwide on idobi radio, and quickly became their most-streamed song, garnering 70,000+ Spotify streams, and earned video rotation in Journeys’ stores nationwide. The final single of the Long Live EP cycle, “Born For Blood” is out on all digital platforms NOW.

UK HEADLINE TOUR IN FEBRUARY 2019
Including O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire

APPEARED LIVE ON ‘AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’ FINALE
THIS WEEK WITH UK TEENAGER COURTNEY HADWIN

British glam-rockers The Struts have shared the new video for ‘Primadonna Like Me’. The video follows the announcement of their highly anticipated new album, YOUNG&DANGEROUS, out October 26th via Polydor Records.

A raucous barrage of exuberant excess, the video sees the band take a wild trip around the glistening casinos of Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace Hotel. Surrounded by screaming fans and dripping with foot-stomping, disco-inflected, glitter-drenched swagger, the video also features footage from their recent sold out San Diego headline show.

“Not long ago we flew from the UK straight to Las Vegas and shot a music video in the early hours of the morning,” says frontman Luke Spiller. “Rolling around the casinos and a huge penthouse, we had a lot of fun with ‘Primadonna Like Me.’ Not quite sure how we managed to pull this off, but here it is for your own viewing pleasure. Enjoy and don’t forget to be a Primadonna, baby! X”

The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album YOUNG&DANGEROUS, the follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed Everybody Wants, in addition to the previously released ‘Body Talks’ and most recent single ‘Bulletproof Baby’. The album will also feature their explosive collaboration, ‘Body Talks ft. Kesha’.

On YOUNG&DANGEROUS, The Struts let loose with the sing-along-ready and riff-heavy sound they’ve brought to stadiums and arenas all around the world, adorning that sound with deeper grooves and inventive textures, dreaming up a majestic glam-rock masterpiece that’s unabashedly fun but full of pure heart.

The band have also announced a UK tour for February 2019, which sees them play eight shows, finishing with London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the 26th.

In just a few years, The Struts have found themselves embraced by some of the greatest icons in rock-and-roll history. Along with opening for The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Guns N’ Roses, the U.K.-bred four-piece was hand-picked by Mötley Crüe to serve as the supporting act for their last-ever performances, while Dave Grohl praised them as the best band to ever open for Foo Fighters.

They also made their most high-profile US TV appearance to date this week, in front of more than 12 million people, performing their 2016 US hit single ‘Could Have Been Me’ and a cover of Janis Joplin’s ‘Piece Of My Heart’ with UK teenager Courtney Hadwin, who was a finalist on the show. You can watch the performance HERE

Formed in Derby, England in 2012, The Struts are Luke Spiller (lead singer), Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums).
