ALICE IN CHAINS (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez and vocalist/guitarist William DuVall) have released ‘The One You Know’, their first new track in five years – click HERE to listen/purchase and HERE to watch the Adam Mason-directed video.

‘The One You Know’ is the first track from the band’s upcoming album and their first release on their new label home BMG. Cantrell discussed the eagerly-anticipated album in a recent interview, saying, “It’s a record we haven’t done yet, but it’s also a record that has all the elements of anything you would expect from us. It’s got our fingerprint. And we’re really proud of the material we wrote and the performances we captured. There’s some really heavy sh*t, some really ugly stuff, some really beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy sh*t…it’s good.”

As for the span between albums, he adds, “We wait until we’re ready and until we have material that’s up to the Alice In Chains standard and then we do what we do. This is the racket we make when we get together.”

The yet-to-be-titled album is the third straight Alice In Chains studio release recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz and engineer Paul Figueroa following 2013’s The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here and 2009’s Black Gives Way To Blue, both of which achieved commercial and critical success.

The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here entered Billboard’s Top 200 chart at No. 2 and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, Hard Rock Albums charts and the iTunes Rock Album Chart and its first two singles, ‘Stone’ and ‘Hollow’, both hit No. 1 on the rock charts. Black Gives Way To Blue debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200, spawned two No. 1 hit singles with ‘Check My Brain’ and ‘Your Decision’ and garnered two Grammy nominations. Along the way, the band drew praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, USA Today, Metal Hammer, Kerrang, NME, Q and many more.

Alice In Chains are currently on a worldwide trek that will take them across North America and Europe including two sold out UK shows at Leeds O2 Academy on June 16th and O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on June 17th. All dates and ticket info can be found HERE.

Over the course of their remarkable career, ALICE IN CHAINS have garnered multiple Grammy nominations, sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and amassed a diehard international fanbase whose members number in the millions.

Australian Country Sensation MORGAN EVANS Announces UK Performances At C2C

AUSTRALIAN COUNTRY SENSATION

MORGAN EVANS

ANNOUNCES UK PERFORMANCES AT
C2C FESTIVAL
9TH – 10TH MARCH

THE US HIT SINGLE ‘KISS SOMEBODY’
AND BRAND NEW TRACK: ‘I DO’
OUT NOW

JOINS JAMES BLUNT ON HIS AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Following the release of his single ‘Kiss Somebody’ and new track ‘I Do’, Australian-born country star Morgan Evans will be returning to the UK next month to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country Festival in London and Glasgow.

“I visited the UK for the first time last year and just fell in love with the country and its music fans,” says Evans. “There’s a depth of passion for music there unlike anywhere else. C2C 2018 will be my third visit and I couldn’t be more stoked to return to London and Glasgow.”

Already a bona-fide music sensation in his native Australia, and highly acclaimed by the likes of Rolling Stone and Billboard in the US – both of whom have tipped him for success in 2018 – his new music is shaped by a love of artists like Ed Sheeran and Keith Urban, alongside many other Nashville greats where he now resides, having signed a global record deal with Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records.

Last year Evans released his debut US single ‘Kiss Somebody’, which he wrote with Chris DeStefano and Josh Osborne. The track has become a major radio hit in multiple countries and debuted on Spotify’s Viral Charts at #15 in the US and #26 globally, with over 19 million streams to date.

The visually impressive, one-of-a-kind accompanying video was released in December 2017 and features a nearly single-shot film in extreme slow-motion.

His newest track ‘I Do’, pays homage to loved ones and was inspired by his now wife and fellow country artist Kelsea Ballerini. As a result of these two tracks, Evans has made a huge splash in the US and in addition to Rolling Stone’s praise for his “velvety voice rasping in all the right places” he has been crowned as one of CMT’s #18for2018 artists.

The upcoming performances at C2C mark his third time back on UK soil after playing a run of headline dates last June, before returning for his acclaimed visit here in October. He’s also set to join James Blunt for three landmark shows in Australia, before heading back to the US for shows in April with Chris Young and Kane Brown.

UPCOMING TOUR DATES

Mar 1st – Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles w/ Old Dominion
Mar 9th – C2C, London

Bad Wolves’ Tommy Vext Discusses Decision To Release The Track With Rolling Stone Magazine

Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan was set to record vocals for hard rock band Bad Wolves’ cover of ‘Zombie’ this past Monday, January 15th, the day of her tragic passing. Today the band release their version of ‘Zombie‘ in her memory, with proceeds going to O’Riordan’s three children.

“It was the greatest honour to know she liked our version and wanted to sing on it,” says Bad Wolves singer Tommy Vext. “We’re deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Dolores and by the fact that she’s leaving behind three children so we are donating the proceeds from the song to her kids.”

“It’s such a powerful song and the themes are still so relevant, we wanted to release it in her memory,” he continues. “The original lyrics include the line ‘It’s the same old theme Since nineteen-sixteen. In your head, in your head, they’re still fighting’. It’s a reference to the IRA bombings during the Irish Rebellion. We changed that lyric to say ‘2018’ and she was really excited about that because the nations may have changed but we’re still fighting the same battles today. Humanity is still fighting to assert itself despite all the conflicts.”

Vext further discusses the decision to release The Cranberries’ genre-defining in an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone.
