Globally acclaimed breakthrough Mongolian rock act THE HU are honored to announce they’ve been named UNESCO’s “Artist For Peace” at a ceremony earlier today (November 25) at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, FR by UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay. They are the first-ever artist in the rock/metal genre to receive this prestigious designation and follow previous “Artist for Peace” recipients including Celine Dion, Shirley Bassey, Sarah Brightman, Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller and World Orchestra For Peace. Having met the band on her official visit to Mongolia this past August, Azoulay has acknowledged THE HU’s contribution to the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage and their support for the promotion of cultural diversity through music; these are qualities which resonate with UNESCO‘s values and work.

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, The HU have since amassed a global following and critical acclaim with their unique musical genre they call “Hunnu Rock.” It fuses rock and heavy metal with styles of traditional Mongolian music, such as the art of Khöömei (throat singing), the tsuur flute and the Morin Khuur (horse-headed fiddle), all of which have been inscribed by UNESCO on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. “HU” corresponds to the root of the word “human being” in the Mongolian language. With this name, the group claim their humanist commitment. Through their music, they address the themes of gender equality, respect for difference, and the importance of protecting nature. They also promote linguistic diversity by using endangered regional dialects.

As an “Artist for Peace”–alongside UNESCO Goodwill Ambassadors and Champions—THE HU will be designated for a renewable period of two years in which time they will help raise public awareness on UNESCO’s mandate and programs among the general public and youth. THE HU will use their talent and reputation to promote UNESCO‘s values and objectives through upcoming events and projects to help bring a positive change.

THE HU’s UNESCO “Artist For Peace” title lands alongside their previous awards as Cultural Envoy of Mongolia in 2019 and being the first group and 12th overall recipients of the highest state award in Mongolia, the Order of Genghis Khan, which was granted to the band by the President of Mongolia, Kh. Battulga in 2020.

“Mongolians have upmost respect for our history, culture and the language that was left to us from thousands of years ago from our elders and ancestors,” says band leader and throat singer Gala. “The HU’s goal and purpose is first and foremost to perform a unique genre of music that gives strength and power upon every listen. Secondly, it is to show the world Mongolia’s nomadic and environmentally aware livelihood that has been passed down from previous generations and to inspire others to live minimalistic lives and enjoy life to its fullest. UNESCO electing the HU with ‘Artists for Peace’ designation shows their appreciation towards cultural diversity and heritage pieces that are of great value to Mongolians. The partnership between the HU and UNESCO will bring awareness towards every culture that is distinguished by their unique heritage and core values, so we are excited to be part of a movement that can improve and change so many lives.”

“We sincerely appreciate being selected by UNESCO as part of their ‘Artists for Peace’ and understand the importance of the designation,” adds tumur khuur and tsuur player Jaya. “From a very young age we have been practicing traditional music techniques and instrumentation such as long song, throat singing, horse head fiddle, tsuur and tovshuur, as we know the significance and impact of sharing one’s culture around the world has to rest of the society. Our music delivers profound ideas that are understood in the subconscious mind while delivering hard rock and ethereal tunes. On the surface level, our lyrics and music seem to talk about basic yet important principles of human beings; on a deeper level, they share the preservation of cultures that are in danger of going extinct and allow us to be representatives for groups who have slightly different world perspectives than the modern world. This is a huge inspiration for us and part of our purposes as artists. Therefore, we will do everything in our power to be the inspiration for the cultures that are underrepresented and work with UNESCO to bring them the attention that they deserve.”

“The Hunnu Rock genre’s fundamental values are based on creating safe space in the modern music world for different traditional music styles that are only appreciated by certain geographical regions and has many cultural values to its techniques and history to its instruments,” states THE HU’s producer Dashka. “With UNESCO recognizing that effort and selecting The HU as their cultural ambassador to stand with what we believe in and what we are trying to accomplish is important to not only Mongolians, but to all nations around the world. In any tradition the lores and the music carry so much of their uniqueness and world view, and everybody agree that sometimes the only way to describe one’s perspective is through music. Our goals and priorities will always be to create amazing music and safeguard the pieces of culture that were passed down to us from prior generations.”

THE HU are currently on the last leg of their global headlining tour which concludes in London, UK on December 9. Earlier this year, the band headlined across North America, a run which included their fiery debut performance at Coachella, and was followed by a supporting tour alongside Five Finger Death Punch and Megadeth. THE HU released their second album RUMBLE OF THUNDER in July via BETTER NOISE MUSIC which features their eco-conscious debut single, “This Is Mongol”; an epic two-part music video for their nine-minute track “Black Thunder”; and the lively single “Bii Biyelegee.” THE HU have announced a deluxe version of RUMBLE OF THUNDER to be released in spring/summer of 2023 via Better Noise Music, with guest appearances from some of rock’s top musicians. Stay tuned for more information in the new year.

About THE HU
In 2019, an NPR story put a spotlight on “a band from Mongolia that blends the screaming guitars of heavy metal and traditional Mongolian guttural singing,” accurately highlighting the cultural importance and unique musical identity of THE HU. Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, THE HU, Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush, are a modern rock group rooted in the tradition of their homeland. The band’s two most popular videos, “Yuve Yuve” and “Wolf Totem,” were produced by the band’s producer Dashka. The band’s name translates to the Mongolian root word for human being, and their unique approach blends instruments like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and throat singing with contemporary sounds, creating a unique sonic profile that they call “Hunnu Rock.”

Their debut album, 2019 ‘s The Gereg, debuted at #1 on the World Album and Top New Artist Charts. With it, the band have accumulated over 250 million combined streams and video views to date and have received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, NPR, GQ, The Guardian, The Independent, Revolver, and even Sir Elton John himself.

Proving their global appeal, THE HU have sold out venues across the world in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, with scheduled festival appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Download Festival, and more, creating a community of fans from all walks of life. They quickly grabbed the attention of the industry, leading to collaborations with Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. And most recently, the band received praise from fans and critics for their Mongolian rendition of Metallica’s “Sad But True,” which Metallica picked up on and invited them to record ‘Through The Never’ for their Metallica Blacklist album released in 2021 alongside other high-profile guest artists like Miley Cyrus, Chris Stapleton, Phoebe Bridgers, J Balvin, St. Vincent, and so many more. The band has also explored eclectic ways to reach audiences with their sound, most notably writing and recording music for EA Games’ Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

“It’s about time someone recognized Crossbone Skully,” says Alice Cooper. “Skully and I go way back. Crossbone Skully has written a galactic masterpiece about one of the most mysterious characters of the cosmos. Is he a villain or a hero? I don’t know. Maybe a little of both. All I know is don’t cross Crossbone Skully. This album rocks every galaxy out there.”

Nikki Sixx says, “I’m thrilled to be involved in the Crossbone Skully project. The music is hard hitting and real as it aligns with an original concept.  To be part of this project with this group of legends is inspirational and I know it’s gonna kick ass!”

The two rock legends are talking about the debut album from CROSSBONE SKULLY, due out on Better Noise Music in 2023. It’s an exciting multi-dimensional project that was launched last Friday (November 18) with the album’s first single, the blazing “Evil World Machine,” available to stream and download HERE.

This Saturday (November 26), the video, directed and animated by Riley Donahue (“Saturday Night Live”), will premiere live at the San Francisco Fan Expo, followed by a YouTube premiere at 7:00 PM (ET) HERE. Fans will get their first look at Tommy Henriksen’s carefully crafted character “CROSSBONE SKULLY,” and the character’s world, which inspired its own upcoming graphic novel and animated film, “Thing #1.”

CROSSBONE SKULLY is an avenging superhero, beginning his journey to rescue humanity on “Evil World Machine,” which confronts the evil currency of the world. Legendary producer Mutt Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard) emerged from retirement to serve as executive producer on the album which was written by guitarist/bassist Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper’s Band / Member of Hollywood Vampires which includes Johnny Depp) and guitarist/producer Tommy Denander.

Henriksen serves as lead vocalist and bassist on the album. Rounding out the band’s lineup are Denander, keyboardist Jamie Muhoberac (My Chemical Romance, John Mayer, Seal), bassist Chris Wyse (Hollywood Vampires, Ace Frehley, the Cult, Ozzy Osbourne), drummer Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper, Hollywood Vampires), the late UFO bassist Pete Way, producer/mixer Mike Plotnikoff (AC/DC, Aerosmith) and mixer Olle Romo (Muse, Bryan Adams). For the “Thing #1” animated short film, Henriksen enlisted voiceover talent from Hollywood A-lister and Hollywood Vampires bandmate Johnny Depp (The Sorcerer), and an impressive list of rock royalty including Alice Cooper (The Bringer of Light), Joe Perry (Big Bad Bone Crusher), Nikki Sixx (The Crooked Crow) and Kane Roberts (Alpha Watchman), just to name a few.

“This has been an amazing journey,” says Henriksen, who began the project almost four years ago. “If you had told me back then that I’d be working with the greatest producer who ever lived, I wouldn’t have believed it.”

CROSSBONE SKULLY will be engaging fans with more music from the album, which delivers a powerful message in today’s global climate, inviting people of all backgrounds to coexist and break down oppressive barriers. Additionally, Henriksen’s vision for CROSSBONE SKULLY will continue to unfold, culminating in the release of the band’s debut album in 2023.

ABOUT CROSSBONE SKULLY

Crossbone Skully is an avenging superhero from outer space, returning to earth to save the world and reconnect with his lost deity love Piper and Kyd, the son he never knew he had. Evil World Machine is a rock concept album that echoes similar dystopian visions such as Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and Diamond Dogs. The project, influenced by larger-than-life bands such as AC/DC, Alice Cooper, KISS, Iron Maiden and even the Sex Pistols, is the work of a collaborative team headed by veteran rock session bassist/guitarist Tommy Henriksen and Tommy Denander alongside the legendary Mutt Lange, who emerged from retirement to executive produce the project.

With a long history Henriksen has also had a successful side career as a producer/mixer/arranger and songwriter for the likes of Lady Gaga, Meat Loaf, Lou Reed, Halestorm, Kesha and Daughtry. His metamorphosis into Crossbone Skully started when Alice Cooper’s lighting man, who used to work for AC/DC, heard him singing like Bon Scott and successor Brian Johnson during a sound check–and suggested he build a solo project around it.

The sterling group of supporting musicians includes guitarist Tommy Denander (who introduced him to Mutt Lange after collaborating on Alice Cooper’s 2017 album Paranormal with Bob Ezrin), keyboardist Jamie Muhoberac (My Chemical Romance, John Mayer, Seal), bassist Chris Wyse (Hollywood Vampires, Ace Frehley, the Cult, Ozzy Osbourne) and drummer Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper, Hollywood Vampires), the late UFO bassist Pete Way, mixer Olle Romo (Muse, Bryan Adams) and producer/mixer Mike Plotnikoff (AC/DC, Aerosmith), who helped get him noticed by Allen Kovac’s Better Noise Records. Making spoken-word appearances are Johnny Depp as the voice of “The Sorcerer,” along with Alice Cooper as “The Bringer of Light,” Joe Perry as “Big Bad Bone Crusher” and Nikki Sixx as “The Crooked Crow,” with Kane Roberts as “Alpha Watchman,” among other guests. Henriksen developed the voice of Crossbone Skully with a vocal app that makes him sound like a disembodied Stephen Hawking. Iconic creative/art director Mark Wilkinson, who designed for Iron Maiden, Marillion, Judas Priest and The Darkness, created the Crossbone Skully album cover.

French Nordic folk collective SKÁLD will return January 20 via Decca Records France / DECCA RECORDS U.S. (UMG) with their third full-length album HULDUFÓLK which in English translates to “the hidden people.” The album shares the myths and legends of Scandinavian poets and shamans with tales of otherworldly beings coexisting with humankind. Sung entirely in Old Norse, the ancient language of Scandinavia, HULDUFÓLK transports listeners into an “elsewhere” made of fantasy, a land inhabited by weird and wonderful creatures, and mysteries with its poetic and epic soundscape.

HULDUFÓLK was composed and produced by the collective’s mastermind Christophe Voisin-Boisvinet and features over a dozen musicians and songwriters using traditional Nordic instrumentation such as the nyckelharpa, Moraharpa, Lyre, Talharpa and hurdy-gurdy alongside shamanic percussion and Nordic chants. Pre-order HULDUFÓLK now on CD, Vinyl and digital download at https://bio.to/skald.

SKÁLD have today (November 18) shared the first glimpse into the mysterious land of HULDUFÓLK with its debut single “Troll Kalla Mik” (“They Call Me Troll”). Its music video delves into the lore of the “Huldufolk” and one’s dangerous journey into their realm illustrating a dance of two powerful spirits, light and darkness. In Icelandic folklore, to cross the lands and forests of the hidden people is to risk losing one’s life and become trapped in a bewitching elven circle. If one does attempt to enter their realm, they become entranced and caught in a hellish loop of dance until they succumb to exhaustion, oblivion or death. The “Troll Kalla Mik” music video can be seen below or HERE. Stream “Troll Kalla Mik” across all digital platforms HERE.

“Troll Kalla Mik” (“They Call Me Troll”) Translated English Lyrics

They call me troll:
“dwelling-Hrungnir’s moon”,
“the giant’s wealth-sucker”,
“bale of the storm-sun”,
“the seeress’ delightful company”,
“guard of the corpse-fjord”,
“swallower of the heavenly wheel”.
What’s a troll, but this?
Ho Ho Hoo…
x2

They call me “Skáld”:
“smith of Viðurr’s ship”,
“finder of Gautr’s gift”,
“unscanty man”,
“bearer of Yggr’s beer”,
x2

“Móði’s creator in poetry”,
“skilled smith of verses”.

What’s a skald, but this? x2

What’s a troll, but this?

They call me troll:
“dwelling-Hrungnir’s moon”,
“the giant’s wealth-sucker”,
“bale of the storm-sun”,
“the seeress’ delightful company”,
“guard of the corpse-fjord”,
“swallower of the heavenly wheel”.

What’s a troll, but this?

They blended honey and blood together
And created that kind of mead which
Makes everyone who drinks it a poet and a wise man.

“But there’s the rub isn’t it classic?
You really want to Save your soul For us
Isn’t it fantastic
You never wanna pay the toll
You only want to rock ‘n’ roll”

Los Angeles-based indie/alternative rock & roll group LOUDEN SWAIN will release their tenth studio album FEELINGS AND SUCH on November 11. The band, fronted by actor/musician ROB BENEDICT (“Supernatural,” “Lucifer,” “Felicity”), combine rock & roll swagger and melodic jangle with emotive, electrifying songs about pushing past challenges and turning one’s struggles into salvation. LOUDEN SWAIN have today shared the new single “There’s The Rub” with a charismatic, feel-good music video starring BENEDICT’s “Supernatural” co-star Kim Rhodes and directed by co-founder/bassist MICHAEL BORJA.

Premiered via PopMatters yesterday (10/26) who described the song as an “energized indie rock cut” with “infectious energy,” the band share the song’s meaning stating: “‘There’s The Rub’ is about the dance of addiction when you think your best days are behind you.” You can view the “There’s The Rub” music video at the bottom of the page or streaming on YouTube HERE.

Rounded out by drummer STEPHEN NORTON and guitarist BILLY MORAN, LOUDEN SWAIN will host a special, intimate record release show in North Hollywood this Saturday, October 29 where they’ll perform FEELINGS AND SUCH in its entirety along with fan-favorites from their previous discography. Tickets are on sale now HERE along with option for a VIP upgrade which includes a pre-show meet & greet, exclusive VIP lanyard and signed show poster.

LOUDEN SWAIN have additional shows lined up throughout 2023 in conjunction with Supernatural conventions across the country. During the three-day conventions, they perform throughout the day’s panels as the house band and on the second night perform a headlining show open to convention attendees and general public featuring original music and sometimes guest appearances from the convention’s guests. LOUDEN SWAIN were also recently added as the opening act for Radio Company (fronted by actor Jensen Ackles) at their first-ever show in Nashville on December 19. Full dates can be found below.

Co-produced by LOUDEN SWAIN and longtime collaborator Zackary Darling (The Temptations, John Waite), FEELINGS AND SUCH is an album rooted in trials and triumphs, whipped into shape by a band of rock & roll lifers who’ve had plenty of experience with both. BENEDICT had gone through a divorce, BORJA had recently lost his father, NORTON was battling colon cancer and everyone’s lives had been altered by the pandemic. Yet LOUDEN SWAIN continued to look on the bright side during those moments of darkness and doubt and recorded the finest record of their 25-year career.

VELVET CHAINS Share New Single “Time Stood Still” from October 21 EP ‘Morbid Dreams’

DT: OCTOBER 19, 2022

FM: MITCH SCHNEIDER, KELLY WALSH / SRO PR

VELVET CHAINS
TODAY SHARE NEW SINGLE “TIME STOOD STILL”
AND ANNOUNCE NEW SIX-SONG EP
‘MORBID DREAMS’
OUT OCTOBER 21

LISTEN HERE TO “TIME STOOD STILL”

VELVET CHAINS today (October 19) have shared their new song “Time Stood Still” and announced the Friday, October 21 release of the six-song EP MORBID DREAMS. Listen to the song–a heavy ballad with the dark stylings that Las Vegas-based hard rock band is becoming known for—HERE.

“Time Stood Still” was produced, mixed & mastered by Grammy Award-nominated and Juno Award-winning producer Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Skillet) and recorded at The Hideout Recording in the band’s Vegas hometown. Co-written by multi-platinum songwriter Drew Lawrence (Lindsey Stirling, Christina Perri) and the band’s bassist/founder Nils Goldschmidt, “Time Stood Still” starts and ends tensely with eerie guitar sounds and possesses an explosive chorus with full-on guitar crunch and searing vocals by frontman Ro Viper, who sings, “I’ve been going down the darkest path.”

In addition to “Time Stood Still,” MORBID DREAMS features new songs “Hiding From Stars” and “Fade Away” alongside the previously released singles/videos “Last Drop” (launched by AntiMusic), “Can’t Win” outlet Terra) and “Back On The Train,” debuted by MXDWN which took note of the band’s “thunderous riffs, melodious guitars…[and] booming vocals.”

VELVET CHAINS—consisting of founder Nils Goldschmidt (bass), Brazilian brothers Laurent (lead guitar) and Larry (rhythm guitar) Cassiano, drummer Jason Hope and Chilean-bred lead singer Ro Viper—decided to issue this EP now instead of waiting to release a previously announced second album for next year. “We’re proud of these six songs and wanted to get them out there now,” says Nils. “At the same time, we’re excited about the band’s growth and evolution. We want to fully capture that in the studio with the next batch of songs.”

Armed with heavy riffs, melodic guitars, soaring vocals and driving rhythms, VELVET CHAINS performed this past summer at Rock Fest (Cadott, WI) and Blue Ridge Rock Fest (Alton, VA). They’ve also opened twice for Todd Kerns (Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators, The Age of Electric) at Count’s Vamp’d in Vegas and have an ongoing Vegas residency at The Barbershop (The Cosmopolitan).

AMERICANA/ALT-COUNTRY ARTIST
DEB MORRISON
SHARES INTIMATE VIDEO FOR
“JADED-LIVE”
IN ADVANCE OF LOS ANGELES RECORD RELEASE SHOW
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22 @ HOTEL CAFÉ

DEBUT SOLO ALBUM ‘THE NORTH FORK’
OUT NOW
VIA BLACKBIRD RECORD LABEL

Credit: Anna Azarov

Americana/alt-country singer-songwriter and bassist DEB MORRISON will celebrate the September 9 release of her debut solo album THE NORTH FORK (Blackbird Record Label) with a special release show in Los Angeles at Hotel Café this Saturday, October 22. In advance of the concert, MORRISON has revealed an intimate video clip for the album’s track “Jaded – Live” which was premiered yesterday via AntiMusic. Watch it streaming below or directly HERE.

The “Jaded – Live” music video was recorded during lockdown and filmed by Nic Capelle of Rockton Road Studios who previously filmed and co-directed recent singles (“The North Fork,” “Blackbird,” “Salton Sea”) and produced THE NORTH FORK. The clip shows a stripped down performance featuring MORRISON on bass, Matt Littell on guitar and Natalie Capelle on harmony vocals.

“Jaded is about remembering when you were a dreamer,” shares MORRISON. “It’s about figuring out a way to rekindle feelings of hope and endless possibility in a complicated world.”

Further explaining the track, she states: “The story takes place at my friend’s mother’s house where we used to hang and talk about all of the things we dreamed of doing one day. It’s tough getting up over and over again when life knocks you down. It’s about to getting back to where you started, when you had big dreams, and empty pockets.”

On THE NORTH FORKMORRISON blurs the boundaries between alt-country, Americana, and roadhouse rock & roll with cinematic storytelling. Notes Andy Kaufmann in his October 2022 album review in Music Connection: “You know the way music can elicit tears of joy? The feature-length debut from singer-songwriter Deb Morrison is loaded with such misty-eyed moments. Inhabiting the space between a left-coast country aesthetic and modern Americana, her tunes are as personal as they are delectable.
