Hard Rock Group PISTOLS AT DAWN Reveal New Video Single “Crown”

DT: April 13, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

HARD ROCK GROUP
PISTOLS AT DAWN
REVEAL NEW SINGLE + MUSIC VIDEO
“CROWN”

TAKEN FROM DEBUT EP
‘NOCTURNAL YOUTH’
DUE MAY 7

Hard rock outfit PISTOLS AT DAWN have shared the second heavy-hitting single, “Crown,” from their upcoming debut EP NOCTURNAL YOUTH due out May 7. The music video for “Crown” was premiered April 9 via Ghost Cult Magazine who lauded it as “fresh with an anthemic feel and major Muse vibes.” Watch it streaming below or find it available across all digital platforms here: http://smarturl.it/StreamCrownNow.

“‘Crown’ is about observing a majority of the world pursuing detrimental ways of life,” jointly state PISTOLS AT DAWN. “It’s about knowing better and seeing leadership continually fail those they lead. Too many in power are acting like foolish kings. ‘Crown’ is a push against apathy and ignorance and refusing to represent those ideologies. The video is a visual representation of the dystopian reality we find ourselves living in, a play on the pursuit of the ‘golden idol,’ and a rejection of the internal and external infrastructure that perpetuates this warped existence.”

PISTOLS AT DAWN – “Crown” Official Music Video

PISTOLS AT DAWN recently spoke to their hometown daily paper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, about the band’s reformation after a brief hiatus following the passing of original guitarist Mike Buffa and the chemistry between founders Adam Jaffe (drums), Devin White (guitars) and Billy Sullivan (bass) with new members Tommy Richardson (guitars) and VH1 Rockstar Supernova finalist Chris Pierson (vocals) while recording their new EP. Read the full chat HERE.

NOCTURNAL YOUTH was recorded with producer Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins, Matchbox 20) and mastered by engineer Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More) and features four powerful and distinctive tracks which Outburn Magazine applaud for their “instantly catchy sing-along anthems and headbang inducing melodies.” The EP’s debut single “Voices” was released on March 5 and was revered by Indie Pulse Music for its “catchy and powerful chorus.”

Montreal rock outfit THE DAMN TRUTH New Album ‘Now or Nowhere’ out May 7, Reveal Debut Single “This Is Who We Are Now”

DT: MARCH 31, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

MONTREAL ROCK OUTFIT
THE DAMN TRUTH
ANNOUNCE THIRD ALBUM
‘NOW OR NOWHERE’
RECORDED BY LEGENDARY PRODUCER BOB ROCK
DUE MAY 7
VIA SPECTRA MUSIQUE / SONY MUSIC

REVEAL DEBUT SINGLE
“THIS IS WHO WE ARE NOW”

LISTEN HERE

Photo Credit: Martin Brisson
Lineup (l-r): Dave Traina (drums, vocals), PY Lettelier (bass guitar, vocals), Lee-la Baum (lead vocals, guitar), Tom Shemer (lead guitar, vocals)

I realize that people see us as a hard-rock band. We are, but we’re also, deep-down, rock ‘n’ roll hippies. All those things about being self-reliant, and community, and peace and love. Well, that’s us. That’s who we are.”
-Lee-la Baum (THE DAMN TRUTH singer/guitarist)

Montreal rock quartet THE DAMN TRUTH are excited to announce their third full-length album NOW OR NOWHERE is scheduled for release on May 7 via SPECTRA MUSIQUE / SONY MUSIC. With six tracks recorded by the Grammy Award-winning legendary producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, Tragically Hip) at Bryan AdamsThe Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, NOW OR NOWHERE is a definitive statement about the band, about the times and how everyone navigates life, love and everything else in a world gone seemingly upside down and sideways. Pre-order’s are available now at this location: https://orcd.co/nowornowhere.

The album’s soulful debut single, “This Is Who We Are Now,” was written on the road during their recent U.S. tour and is streaming now across all digital platforms HERE. Watch a video visualizer below or streaming on YouTube HERE.

“Like almost everything good that The Damn Truth has ever produced, this song was born on the road and could be considered a 100% collaboration among the four of us,” lead guitarist/vocalist TOM SHEMER points out. “I’ll never forget the moment when I was driving to a gig in eastern Texas and PY was sitting in the passenger seat next to me. I told him, ‘Dude, press record on the voice memo,’ and I hummed, ‘This is who we are now’ into his phone. Months later, as the band laid down the track in the studio, Lee-la walked into the control room, grabbed the microphone and without writing anything down on paper, she did the take. That was it. Done.”

THE DAMN TRUTH – “This Is Who We Are Now” Visualizer Video

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the band was unable to complete the full recording of NOW OR NOWHERE with Bob Rock so the band enlisted a team of A-list engineers to help complete the album; Juno Award-winning producer Jean Massicotte (Patrick Watson) –who mixed “Everything Fades”–and Grammy Award-winning engineers Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) and Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against The Machine) as well as Mike Plotnikoff (Van Halen, Cranberries, Three Days Grace).

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process for NOW OR NOWHERE with the band’s current webisode series ‘A Week in The DAMN Life’ airing now on their YouTube channel. Watch episodes 1-4 and stay tuned for upcoming clips here: https://youtu.be/b-xeLktHguM.

THE DAMN TRUTH originated after LEE-LA and TOM first met—both in the nude–at a hippie festival near the Sea of Galilee in Israel. “Yeah, totally naked. Just Lee-La and her guitar,” TOM adds. “And we’ve been together ever since. No pretensions. Nothing to hide. Just love.” The ‘60s ethos of organic self-sufficiency is the lifeblood of THE DAMN TRUTH and the secret to a work ethic that has garnered them almost 2 million streams on Spotify, 60,000 followers on TikTok and over 2 million YouTube views.

The band has previously performed on stages and festivals in Europe and across North America, including opening on tours for ZZ Top, The Sheepdogs, Styx and Rival Sons and have sold out venues including the legendary Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles and the Corona Theatre in Montreal. The estate of Janis Joplin even shared their TikTok cover video of “Mercedes Benz” on its official Facebook page praising LEE-LA’s vocals stating, “Lordy, she’s got talent.” LEE-LA‘s intoxicating vocals also led to her being featured covering U2’s “Love Is Blindness” in a video ad for Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris perfume that went viral internationally, doubling their fan base overnight. Watch a full cover of the song which has nearly one million views to date HERE.

Rock & Roll Performance Troupe CHERRY BOMBS Present ‘Macabarét’ Livestream Cinematic Experience

DT: MARCH 31, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

ROCK AND ROLL PERFORMANCE TROUPE
THE CHERRY BOMBS
PRESENT
MACABARÉT’
–A CINEMATIC LIVESTREAM PRODUCTION–
STREAMING APRIL 23, 24 & 25

ANNOUNCE THIRD SEASON OF
‘GIRL GANG’
DOCUSERIES LAUNCHING TODAY, MARCH 31
VIA YOUTUBE AT 12:00 P.M. PT

CHERRY BOMBS bring an entire new way to experience rock and roll music by combining daredevil arts with feminine power. Their fearless and dynamic performances feature “jaw-dropping aerials, intense fire sequences and dialed-in choreography.” (Knotfest). Founded in 2013 by ALICIA TAYLOR, the troupe have performed at the largest motorcycle rallies such as Sturgis and Daytona, as well as opening for cross-country tours with Buckcherry and Stone Sour. With the halt of live events due to the pandemic, CHERRY BOMBS reimagined their live show into a unique cinematic experience billed as MACABARÉT.

MACABARÉT is a next-step evolution of the CHERRY BOMBS’ high-octane show which combines the group’s daring skillsets with a visually stunning and sonically intense storyline captured on film and backed by a soundtrack featuring staple rock tracks from the genre’s most prominent artists. Filmed at various locations in Nevada by cinematographer Nathan Mowery (Kind Punk Film), ‘MACABARÉT’ follows the story of an out-of-luck man entangled in a delicious web of torment and retribution. When he finds himself stranded in the middle of nowhere, he makes his way to the unassuming White Dog Saloon, hoping for help. What he finds there is a taste of his own medicine. Watch the trailer streaming below or HERE.

“Macabarét was certainly a labor of love–starting with the legend of the goddess Pele, of which I learned about while living in Hawaii,” shares ALICIA TAYLOR. “I found her to be wonderfully intriguing and inspiring, and I wanted to pay homage in a modern way with a story that combines horror and fantasy told through the visual art that Cherry Bombs is known for. The story expands to take place in the White Dog Saloon, a casual looking watering hole in the middle of the desert, where unbeknownst to its visitors, karma serves an ice-cold dish of comeuppance.”

“This show was meant to be debuted on our very first headlining run, scheduled for spring 2020–however, as well all know, COVID hit and that washed everything away,” TAYLOR further explains. “In order to adapt, I decided to have Nathan Mowery of Kind Punk Film tape an ‘extended trailer’ of the show, to tease what I thought would be an inevitable tour later that year. Alas, that tour did not happen either, so we switched gears again once we realized the pandemic was going to last much longer than anticipated. I decided to film the entire production in full-length cinematic format–as if it were a movie–from start to finish. I handpicked the locations, we brought in lighting, staged the scenes to fit the script– everything filmed in a way to take the viewer through the story as they were experiencing it for themselves. I wanted this virtual show to feel immersive, bringing the viewer inside and through the White Dog Saloon.”

CHERRY BOMBS ‘Macabaret’ Extended Trailer

Experience the MACABARÉT show in the comfort of your own home during one of its upcoming livestream showings on April 23, 24 & 25 at 12:00 PM (PT) / 3:00 P.M. (ET) and 6:00 P.M. (PT) / 9:00 P.M. (ET) exclusively via VEEPS. Tickets are on-sale now at www.cherrybombs.veeps.com.

In advance of the MACABARÉT streams, CHERRY BOMBS will launch Season 3 of their docuseries ‘Girl Gang’ which will allow viewers to see a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into a CHERRY BOMBS production. The four-part web series will air weekly via CHERRY BOMBS YouTube channel at 12:00 P.M. starting on Wednesday, March 31. Subscribe now at https://www.youtube.com/c/CherryBombs.

CHERRY BOMBS will return to stages with their explosive performance this May as direct support for Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) on a month-long jaunt across the country from May 18 to June 19. Tickets and further information about the COVID safety compliant shows can be found HERE.

POP EVIL have debuted their new single “Set Me Free” today (3/19) along with announcing May 21 as the release date for their much-anticipated sixth full-length album VERSATILE via Entertainment One (eOne). The release finds the Michigan rock heavyweights pushing their instantly distinctive sound to uncharted territories, expertly balancing the styles they’ve explored on recent tracks “Let The Chaos Reign,” “Work” and “Breathe Again,” of which the latter two have blasted on to the Top 10 Rock charts joining previous #1 hits “Waking Lions,” “Footsteps,” “Deal with the Devil,” “Trenches” and “Torn to Pieces,” which was certified GOLD by the RIAA in 2020. The new single “Set Me Free” is a reminder of the band’s ability to be a bastion for perseverance and positivity which features colossal riffs coupled with a formidable performance from vocalist Leigh Kakaty. Watch and listen in the below video visualizer or directly HERE.

We are very excited to announce our sixth studio album is being released May 21,” announce POP EVIL in a joint statement. “‘Versatile’ is available for pre-order now! With this launch we are releasing a brand-new track from the album, ‘Set Me Free,’ which embodies the challenging times the world has faced this past year. We are very proud & humbled to see our current single ‘Breathe Again’ trending Top 5 on the Rock Radio charts, and the video being embraced by our fans. We can’t wait for you all to hear the rest of the album, as we feel it’s our strongest to date.”

If rock is dead, then POP EVIL is definitive proof of the afterlife.

The blue-collar band—which consists of Kakaty alongside lead guitarist Nick Fuelling, rhythm guitarist Dave Grahs, bassist Matt DiRito and drummer Hayley Cramer–have built a new rock n’ roll institution on their foundation of showmanship, raw relatability, and hard rock hooks, both forward-thinking and timeless.

POP EVIL’s songwriting on VERSATILE zeros in on their juxtaposition of cinematic melody and heavy, unflinching groove. Deftly mixing fist-pumping anthems and timeless power ballads, POP EVIL delivers their most ambitious rebirth yet with a jaw-dropping and unpredictable album. VERSATILE sounds exactly like the name suggests. It distills the soaring melodies and driving riffs of POP EVIL’s past and introduces an ambitious exploration of the future.

VERSATILE Tracklist:
1. Let The Chaos Reign
2. Set Me Free
3. Breathe Again
4. Work
5. Inferno
6. Stronger (The Time Is Now)
7. Raise Your Flag
8. Human Nature
9. Survivor
10. Worst In Me
11. Same Blood
12. Fire Inside 

Beyond the success story told by the charts, the 1 million units of “total activity” across their catalog, and the over 600 million streams of their songs on major platforms, POP EVIL’s greatest strength is the diverse group of people captivated by the band’s relatable storytelling and undeniable catchiness. These are fans earned, city by city, on tours with a modern rock playlist’s worth of genre titans.

VERSATILE will be made available on CD exclusively via Target, which will offer a two disc deluxe edition with the second disc including the track listing from their 2020 #1’s LP of which all of their current #1 singles were pressed on 180-gram opaque gold vinyl.

BUDDERSIDE Share New Single “Amber Alert (ft. Carla Harvey of Butcher Babies) In Devilish Music Video

DT: MARCH 19, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

 


BUDDERSIDE
SHARE CIRCUS-THEMED MUSIC VIDEO FOR
“AMBER ALERT (FEAT. CARLA HARVEY OF BUTCHER BABIES)”

WATCH HERE

THE ALBUM ‘SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE
DUE MARCH 26 VIA MOTÖRHEAD MUSIC/SILVER LINING MUSIC

Hollywood rock & roll group BUDDERSIDE bridge the gap between the sexy swagger of the Sunset Strip and the soulful depths of Seattle on their forthcoming sophomore release SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE out March 26 via Motörhead Music/Silver Lining Music. Its fourth single, “Amber Alert (featuring Carla Harvey of Butcher Babies),is out today (March 19), streaming across all digital platforms HERE. The band premiered its seductive music video yesterday (3/18) via Metal Injection. In the video, BUDDERSIDE vocalist Patrick Stone and Harvey lead viewers into a circus where the devil is the ringleader—portrayed by music personality and host of KLOS’ ‘New and Approved’ show Matt Pinfield. Watch it streaming above or HERE.

“In LA everyone wants to be a rockstar but no one wants to put the work in,” says Butcher Babies vocalist Harvey. “Patrick is a long-time friend of mine that has always shown true tenacity in going after his dreams. Both of us have picked up the pieces and started over many times to come as far as we have. I’m super proud of what he’s done with Budderside, so naturally I said yes when he asked me to feature on ‘Amber Alert.’ I had a blast throwing a little estrogen on this banger!”

“Budderside are one of the most exciting bands out of LA in a really long time,” declares Pinfield. “For my money–what rock music should be. They have the goods–a frontman with real swagger and incredible players who deliver their songs with passion, power and conviction.  Visually, the band’s videos for the new album are on an unparalleled level of creativity. I was honored to be a part of their new video for the single ‘Amber Alert.’ The song’s heavy groove is complimented by the vocal duet with Budderside’s charismatic frontman Patrick Stone and Butcher Babies’ Carla Harvey, who adds a heavy, menacing yet melodic interplay with this unforgettable in-your-face rock anthem that never lets up and doesn’t disappoint.”

SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE was recorded with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Godsmack, Papa Roach) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage). Its 10 spiritually evocative and meticulously crafted songs are thoughtfully designed to resonate, both musically and lyrically, across the world.

Two of the band’s recently shared video singles–“Zen” (filmed in Tokyo and directed by Erik Bishop) and the animated “Pardon Me (featuring Phil Campbell of Motörhead)” (directed by Pablo Conde)— were selected at several independent film festivals including Los Angeles Film Awards, Virgin Spring Cinefest, Fantasy/Sci-Fi Film & Screenplay Festival and Lift off Global Network Berlin. Additionally, “Pardon Me” was recently updated as a finalist for the Golden Short Film Festival.

Voices” is available now across all digital platforms at: https://smarturl.it/StreamVoicesNow

“‘Voices’ is a song about trying to quiet the voices in one’s head and the voices around us,” explains PISTOLS AT DAWN in a joint statement. “We live in a world where everyone has a voice, and it can be hard to find the real truth. It’s about focusing on self-reflection and drawing a line in the sand to weed out all the nonsense. The video for the song is all about intimacy–it’s meant to bring the listener up close so they can see and feel our emotion and expression as we expel the voices through our playing. Connection is everything to us, and we want our listeners to see and feel what we feel. Raw emotion and passion—that’s how we connect.”

PISTOLS AT DAWN was originally formed in 2015 but disintegrated after the tragic passing of guitarist Mike Buffa in 2018.  The band reformed in 2019 with founding members, drummer Adam Jaffe, guitarist Devin White and bassist Billy Sullivan while adding Tommy Richardson on guitars and VH1 Rockstar Supernova finalist Chris Pierson on vocals. Taking inspiration from universal hard rock acts such as Godsmack, Breaking Benjamin and Disturbed, the quintet headed to Cock The Walk studio in their hometown of Atlanta with Tomei in early 2020 to record three new singles that displayed their heart-pumping, radio-ready sound which they released later that year.

Traditional Nordic folk outfit WARDRUNA will further celebrate the worldwide success of their fifth full-length album KVITRAVN–released January 22 via BY NORSE MUSIC and SONY MUSIC/COLUMBIA RECORDS—by making video subtitles available in English, Spanish and Norwegian, for the first-time in the band’s 18-year history, for its three music video singles, one lyric video and the “Helvegen Live” video.

WARDRUNA’s official YouTube channel launched in 2008 and has since grown to nearly half a million subscribers. Fans will now be able to dive into the lyrical world of WARDRUNA further allowing them insight into the Nordic cultural and esoteric traditions and wisdom exemplified throughout their music.

“We are pleased to let you know that we have now added English and Spanish subtitles to our YouTube videos for ‘Grá,’ ‘Kvitravn,’ ‘Lyfjaberg,’ ‘Skugge’ and the ‘Helvegen Live’ performance with Aurora,” revealed WARDRUNA founder and composer EINAR SELVIK. “Even though music often moves freely across barriers of language, knowing the meaning behind our lyrics can surely add another dimension to it, so we hope you will appreciate this small bridge we provided. Special thanks to Rebeca Franco Valle for helping with the Spanish translations.”

Watch along with subtitles to the below video clips:

WARDRUNA have arranged a special virtual record release show from Oslo, NO to take place on Friday, March 26 at 12:00 P.M. PT / 3:00 P.M. ET allowing audiences to experience the group’s one-of-a-kind and truly extraordinary performance which transcends borders, time, languages and musical genres. Tickets are on sale now along with exclusive merch add-ons at www.wardrunashop.com.

KVITRAVN—translated to “White Raven”—debuted across several worldwide Top 10 charts including landing at #1 Top New Artist Album, #3 Americana/Folk, #4 Digital Albums and #9 on Billboard’s Top Album charts in the U.S. alone. The album features a broad selection of both traditional and historical instruments and guest appearances by a small group of prominent traditional singers, spearheaded by Kirsten Bråten Berg (one of the most important custodians of Norwegian traditional song). Throughout its eleven songs, KVITRAVN illuminates Northern sorcery, spirit-animals, shadows, nature and animism, the wisdom and meanings of certain myths, various Norse spiritual concepts, and the relation between sage and songs.

KVITRAVN is available now on various formats and bundles: https://wardruna.lnk.to/Kvitravn_Album

Check out some critical praise for KVITRAVN here:

“Haunting, powerful and deeply immersive, it is an unmitigated triumph and a career high for Wardruna.”
Metal Hammer, 1/18/21

The messages that transcend time through centuries of storytelling are alive in this collection of songs and will be heard and felt for centuries to come thanks to Wardruna.”
Thank Folk For That, 1/28/21

Selvik’s commanding vocals, accompanied by bowed instrumentation, percussion, and a deep horn, combine to create a fantastic landscape of sound…Featuring stringed and bowed instruments, the symphonic composition redefines orchestral and classically sounding music by reimagining it as a traditional Norse take on that.”
New Noise Magazine, 1/22/21

WARDRUNA are displaying to the best of their abilities, masters in their craft, Kvitravn being no exception to that but the strength that holds this album up is unlike anything that could have been expected. Its simplicities make for complex and beautiful soundscapes.”
Distorted Sound, 1/20/21

The visceral intensity to this music sports both elegant beauty and grimacing grit. Closer “Andevarljod” encapsulates this balance of scene-setting nuance and infectious spirit. The song’s 11-minute run-time brings some of the most overwhelming crescendos of the band’s career, topped by some incredible vocal performances from Selvik.”
Riff Magazine, 1/20/21
