I AM DURÁN Available on Digital Download on June 4

 

FEATURING ROBERTO DURÁN, SUGAR RAY LEONARD, SYLVESTER STALLONE, ROBERT DE NIRO, MIKE TYSON, LENNOX LEWIS AND RICKY HATTON

DIRECTED BY MAT HODGSON

We are thrilled to share with you the trailer for the highly-anticipated boxing documentary “I AM DURÁN,” featuring Roberto Durán, Sugar Ray Leonard, Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Mike Tyson, and several sporting heroes. 

“I AM DURÁN” is directed by Mat Hodgson (The Four Year Plan, Night of the Fight: Hatton’s Last Stand) and features iconic boxing champion Roberto Durán sharing his life story with fans. 

“I AM DURÁN” puts viewers in the corner of one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters ever and shows how Roberto Durán used his “Hands of Stone” to become a national hero and beloved son of Panama. 

Roberto Durán is a boxing behemoth, a titanic figure with a career straddling five epic decades who is regarded as one of the most entertaining and skilled fighters of all time. 

“I AM DURÁN” tells his story, inextricably interwoven with the story of the nation of Panama.

As Roberto Durán rose, fell, and rose again, staggering between glory and disaster, buffeted by the brutal blows of his opponents and of life itself – so did his beloved Panama. 

A country brought to its knees as a pawn in violent regional and international politics and suffering from the harsh yoke of dictator Manuel Noriega’s ruthless regime, in its darkest hour Panama needed a hero, a voice and an identity.

Roberto Durán’s impact transcended boxing and politics.

Born a fighter, his success inside the ring transformed him into an icon, yet it was his flaws and failures outside the ring that made him a hero and continue to ensure that his universal appeal and popularity endure to this day.

UK HEADLINE DATES IN JUNE

PLUS FESTIVAL APPEARANCES AT
ISLE OF WIGHT / BLACK DEER

The Marcus King Band have released the video for ‘Goodbye Carolina’, a poignant, lyrical ballad from their critically acclaimed album Carolina Confessions. The band have also announced a number of UK headline shows this June alongside appearances at The Isle Of Wight and Black Deer Festivals.

The video, directed by Tess Lafia and shot in Nashville, is a stunning portrayal of the pain and struggle of change, a subject that resonates with King, who recently moved to Music City from his native Greenville, South Carolina.

“With all my material, I like the listener to draw their own conclusion as to the meaning of the lyrics; I want the song to be what it means to you,” Marcus remarks. “That being said, ‘Goodbye Carolina’ came to me in a daydream, an apparition of a dear songwriter friend we had lost only a year prior. I wrote from his perspective, and often feel the song was written through me. The lyrics simultaneously describe my need to break out and escape the bad memories, loss and pain associated with my hometown, using the state as a personification of things I decided to leave behind.”

The Marcus King Band have become one of the most exciting new arrivals in American music. The band — guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Marcus King, drummer Jack Ryan, bassist Stephen Campbell, trumpeter/trombonist Justin Johnson, sax player Dean Mitchell and keyboard player DeShawn ‘D-Vibes’ Alexander – are fresh from a standout week at this year’s SXSW, including searing sets at Willie Nelson’s Luck Revival and Antone’s, which Rolling Stone named one of the festival’s 30 best performances.

The band also recently performed a mesmerising version of ‘Goodbye Carolina’ on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert — watch HERE.

The video release comes as the soulful rockers embark on a high-profile international tour this summer, which sees them currently on their second trip to Japan for the Billboard Live Festival, before playing dates in Australia as a part of the Byron Bay Bluesfest, then returning home for three headlining dates at The Brooklyn Bowl in June prior to heading across to Europe and the UK.

The band then return to the States in early July to join country music juggernaut Chris Stapleton on his All-American Road Show tour. Most recently it was announced that MKB will perform as part of the historic Woodstock 50 Festival this August.

LUANA KIARA Releases Compelling Video for New Single ‘Trigger’

img_8362

Sweden by way of Gambia singer Luana Kiara has released a poignant video for her debut single ‘Trigger’.

The video addresses the issue of domestic abuse and captures Luana dancing with a man as romance begins to escalate into violence.

The song is a dark R&B roller and reinforces the message that you can never truly know the daily struggles other people face. The platinum selling and Grammy-nominated Christian Nilsson and Mårten Fohlin produced the track.

‘Trigger’ was released last month as part of the New Balance Scandinavia International Women’s Day campaign. Luana Kiara was the face of the campaign, for which ‘Trigger’ was the soundtrack, and as part of this she spoke about her background and the importance for women to stand up for themselves in a moving mini documentary.

‘Trigger’ follows Luana’s collaboration with the Scandinavian production and DJ duo Tungevaag & Raaban, where she was a featured vocalist on their smash hit ‘Bad Boy’, which was released last year and has clocked up over 14 million streams on Spotify alone.

Now stepping to the forefront with her debut single ‘Trigger’, Luana Kiara is proving herself to already be an important name on the Swedish music scene. She is a strong female figurehead and set to take the world by storm.

THE KING’S PARADE Release ‘Mad’ EP

IMG_8348

MAD
NEW EP RELEASED
LISTEN HERE
 
‘MISTAKES’
VIDEO REVEALED
WATCH HERE

UK & EU TOUR STARTS THIS MONTH

The King’s Parade have released their brand new EP Mad. To mark the release the critically acclaimed London four-piece have revealed the video for their latest single ‘Mistakes’.

The ‘Mistakes’ video follows the touching story of a man on a deserted beach; while metal detecting he uncovers various items that trigger fantasy fuelled visions of a past love.

Regarding the video frontman Olly Corpe says, “The video explores how a past choice can haunt someone later in life. We wanted to push this idea to the extreme, blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction throughout the narrative to create a surreal atmosphere. I think that filming the video in one continuous shot helped to make the transitions between fact and fiction uncannily seamless, while simultaneously magnifying the raw emotions of the protagonist.”

‘Mistakes’ is taken from the brand new EP Mad, which opens with the huge anthemic lead single and title track. The rest of the EP weaves between touching, soulful moments and passionate outbursts of sonic energy amid graceful melodies, captivating harmonies and enthralling songwriting.

‘Mistakes’ and ‘Mad’ have received great support from tastemakers including the likes of BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing and Clash Magazine.

Regarding the EP Olly says, “This EP feels like another step up from everything we’ve done in the past, and has allowed us to test the waters in terms of our sound.  All the songs on the EP share the common theme of longing for the past but in a way we’ve never been so excited for the future.” 

The King’s Parade kicked off their headline tour in support of the Mad EP last night in Madrid and will play a further 10-dates across the UK and Europe. Full tour dates can be found below:

Pop Rock Band SWIM Drops New Single “The Chase”

IMG_8346

NY-based indie pop rock band SWIM have released their new single “The Chase,” out on all digital platforms NOW. The track, a fun and energetic piece written collectively by the band, blends together various elements of mainstream pop, rock, and indie. “The Chase” is quite nostalgic, speaking of personal doubt in a relationship, while also piecing together each band members’ instrumentation to create a sleek, cool fusion. About the single, the band states:

The Chase was written by all members of the band, slowly coming together as they wrote each section of the song. The song speaks to uncertainty and doubt that one may feel in a relationship, while struggling to make it through. What started as a simple chord progression would be recorded and polished over the course of the year to become the version that is released today.

SWIM is an indie pop-rock band established in Stony Brook, New York. Voted one of the Top 10 bands on Long Island during the summer of 2017 in Newsday’s Band Battle, SWIM has been active at venues across Long Island since 2015, following the release of their first, self-titled EP, even performing at notable local venues like 89 North (Patchogue), Revolution (Amityville), and the Rainbow Stage at Heckscher State Park. Friends since high school, SWIM has steadily grown their fan-base performing from local Long Island venues to national stages such as SXSW in Austin, TX. 2017 saw the release of Finally, Someone, SWIM’s sophomore effort. Debuting a fine-tuned, focused bid at powerful, alternative rock laced with heavy pop overtones, the record features six tracks which promise to deliver a non-stop groove and revolve around the themes of love lost, love found, and love longed-for. The album has been premiered on local radio stations like 90.1 WUSB, and several online stations. Their last single “Heartbeat Connection” has earned over 200,000 listens on Spotify. SWIM’s thought lyrics, pop melodies, and rhythmic guitar and bass accompaniments tip their hat to indie rock influences like The Strokes and The Kooks, while staying true to the group’s unique brand of pop, heavily influenced by the likes of The Lumineers, Bleachers, and Coldplay. “The Chase” is available on all digital music platforms NOW.

THE HEAD AND THE HEART Share Video for ‘Missed Connection’

HONEYBEE
NEW TRACK OUT NOW

NEW ALBUM
LIVING MIRAGE
OUT MAY 17TH
PRE-ORDER HERE

The Head And The Heart have shared the video for ‘Missed Connection’, the first track taken from their upcoming album Living Mirage, out May 17th via Parlophone Records/Reprise Records.

Featuring footage filmed in Joshua Tree, where the band came together before starting work on Living Mirage, the video follows the release of the ‘Missed Connection single in March, and comes after the release of their latest single, ‘Honeybee’, last Friday.

The palpitating-choral ‘Missed Connection’ is a poignant snapshot of the anxiety that preceded that growth spurt. “A lot of the beats on that song are quicker, and there are high hats that were never in our music before”, drummer Tyler Williams says, attributing the new sounds to their love of pop and hip-hop production. The track began as a remembrance of how Jon met his girlfriend, until morphing into a potent metaphor for the band — who met serendipitously around an open-mic night in Seattle 10 years ago — suddenly wondering, as he recalls, “Is it all going to work?”

Living Mirage lives up to its title, a shapeshifting fever dream of unease, angst, and ultimately hope. “This is literally the most work we’ve ever done on an album”, the band’s Jon Russell remarks, proudly.

The Head And The Heart will embark on an extensive 38-date US tour starting in June, following the release of their upcoming fourth album Living Mirage next month.
