RELEASE MUSIC VIDEO FOR
“THINGS WE DO” (FEAT MUSYCA CHILDREN’S CHOIR)
TAKEN FROM SOPHOMORE ALBUM ‘SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE’

BAND ANNOUNCE ROCKLAHOMA FESTIVAL APPEARANCE &
AUGUST HOMETOWN SHOW

BUDDERSIDE bridge the gap between the sexy swagger of the Sunset Strip and the soulful depths of Seattle on their recent sophomore release SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE via Motörhead Music/Silver Lining Music. Recorded with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Godsmack, Papa Roach) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage), the album shares heartbreak, perseverance, meditation, and resurrection from the throes of addiction across its 10 spiritually evocative and meticulously crafted songs. The album also features guest appearances from Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell and Butcher Babies vocalist Carla Harvey.

The quintet today (July 23) have shared an evocative animated lyric video for the deeply personal track “Things We Do,” which features Musyca Children’s Choir and covers the trials and tribulations of dealing with addiction. Watch it streaming now via YouTube HERE or directly above.

Vocalist/guitarist PATRICK STONE shares: “‘Things We Do’ is a firsthand walk through addiction, the loss of a dear friend and the hypocritical, empty promise of getting high.”

BUDDERSIDE—who were personally signed by late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister–have built a reputation on the road, touring with staple metal acts including Slayer, Anthrax, L.A. Guns and Motörhead, as well as appearing at major worldwide music festivals including Wacken Open Air (Germany), Malmö Festival (Sweden), Motörhead’s Motörboat and Monsters Of Rock cruise. They will continue to bring their riveting performance to the stages as they have been announced as part of the lineup for Rocklahoma (Rob Zombie, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit) taking place from September 3-5. Prior to that, BUDDERSIDE will play their first show since the pandemic in their Los Angeles hometown as they headline The North End Hollywood on Sunday, August 8.

“Budderside are one of the most exciting bands out of LA in a really long time,” declares former MTV VJ and music personality Matt 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.”

BUDDERSIDE have previously released four cinematic music video singles from SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE—including “Zen” (filmed in Tokyo, Japan) and “Pardon Me (feat. Phill Campbell), which have been featured as finalists and official selections at various independent film festivals (Los Angeles Film Awards, Virgin Spring Cinefest, Fantasy/Sci-Fi Film & Screenplay Festival and Lift Off Global Network Berlin). Read an interview with each video’s director HERE.

DT: JULY 22, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

ROCK’N’ROLL TRIO
THE BLACK MOODS
ANNOUNCE FALL U.S.TOUR WITH THE DEAD DAISIES
SEPT. 10–OCT.15

TICKETS ON SALE NOW

Born in the Arizona desert and reared on stages across North America, THE BLACK MOODS have been trailblazers for the ‘new wave of classic rock’ movement with their guitar-driven rock that delivers a fresh, fiery update of a timeless sound. The trio—vocalist/guitarist JOSH KENNEDY, drummer CHICO DIAZ and bassist/backing vocalist JORDAN HOFFMAN–are excited to announce they will embark on their first tour pegged to their critically acclaimed 2020 sophomore album SUNSHINE–recorded by Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down)–due to the halt of live music last year as a result of the pandemic.

The band will join Australian-American rock collective THE DEAD DAISIES across the U.S. on their “Like No Other” tour this fall alongside rock & roll comedian Don Jamieson (VH1’s That Metal Show). It kicks off September 10 in Rockford, IL and stretches to the West Coast, wrapping in Seattle, WA October 15. The trek includes a stop for THE BLACK MOODS at Aftershock Festival October 9 in Sacramento, CA. Full dates are listed below and tickets are on sale now at www.theblackmoods.com.

In addition to performing hits from SUNSHINE, THE BLACK MOODS will give fans a first listen to new music taken from its much-anticipated follow-up expected to be released later this year. The as-yet-untitled album was recorded over the past year while the band was off the road due to the covid pandemic.

“We’re thrilled to be back on the road again and getting back to what we do best,” shared the band collectively. “Playing with our rock & roll heroes in The Dead Daisies is icing on the cake, and we can’t wait to trade jokes with Don Jamieson as well! We’re happy to finally be able to perform ‘Sunshine’ live and even more excited to share a sneak peek of new material from our upcoming album too. We will see you all on the road!”

SUNSHINE, released last May via Steelhorse Entertainment, marked several career highlights for THE BLACK MOODS including their first-ever Top 20 Billboard Active Rock charting single, title track “Sunshine” (which peaked at #16), a cover feature with their hometown local weekly newspaper, Phoenix New Times (May 7, 2020) and three additional Top 30 singles (“Bad News” [#24], “Bella Donna” [#29] and “Whatcha Got[#30]). The band also released a stirring music video for the album’s ballad “Home” which featured footage of the band and their families which captured the world’s feeling of struggling being unable to be with loved ones.

With touring at a halt, THE BLACK MOODS temporarily relocated their home studio from Phoenix to the Ozarks (where Kennedy was born and raised) and recorded their next album in the house of their label owner, once again with Karkazis, in addition to recording a track remotely using advanced virtual software with legendary producer Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, The Beatles) who was based in Canada. Stay tuned for further details on their third album–due out later this year–in the coming months.

LA-based Guitar-Driven Artist IAN GOTHE Shares New Single/Video “Upside Down”

DT: JULY 21, 2021

FM: MITCH SCHNEIDER/KELLY WALSH

 

IAN GOTHE
SHARES NEW SINGLE + VIDEO
‘UPSIDE DOWN,”
HIS FIRST NEW MUSIC SINCE HIS 2020 DEBUT ALBUM

THE MOODY GUITAR-DRIVEN ROCKER,
PRODUCED BY THE LOS ANGELES-BASED ARTIST AND FERNANDO PERDOMO,
LAMENTS HOW ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
IS AFFECTING OUR QUALITY OF LIFE

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Coming off his 2020 debut album Memento, acclaimed guitarist, singer and songwriter IAN GOTHE has today (July 21) shared the video for his new single “Upside Down” via Blackbird Record Label. The moody guitar-driven rocker, produced by the Los Angeles-based artist and the revered Fernando Perdomo, laments how advanced technology is affecting our quality of life. Watch the evocative video, lensed by director Martin Yernazian, here. It was premiered yesterday (July 20) via Glide Magazine. The single will be available this Friday (July 23) at all streaming platforms here: https://smithmusic.ffm.to/iangothe_upsidedown.

“Ian Gothe certainly knows his way around a guitar and very well might be one of the greatest guitar players you haven’t heard,” noted Glide in its article (7/20/21). “With influences that dabble in ’70s British prog with a buff songwriting flair, Gothe combines shades of Jethro Tull and early King Crimson with a mixture of hearty folk.” The outlet added: “With his well-worn raspy vocals and dexterous guitar workmanship, Gothe’s ‘Upside Down’ awakens as a modern-day ‘Deep Track’ wonder.”

“Upside Down” marks IAN’s first new recording since Memento which presented a collection of wistful original songs and covers, reflecting his travels around the world and eclectic taste in music. It also featured GOTHE‘s stellar guitar playing. Robbie Krieger from The Doors praised Ian’s rendition of “Spanish Caravan,” noting: “I love it! It’s tough to cover Doors songs because the originals are so iconic. But Ian wasn’t afraid to stick to the original format and did a great job of capturing the feel.” Guitar Player premiered Ian’s music video for the song, calling it “a beautiful, deeply personal cover.”

“I co-wrote it with my friend Cody LePow,” GOTHE says about “Upside Down.” “When he stopped by one evening, I said: ‘I’m sick and tired of corporations shaking me for information, always wanting to know our location…we should write a song about it.’ Cody replied, ‘you just did.’ So I grabbed a pen, and while writing, a fire engine siren got the dogs in the neighborhood to start howling. Cody commented: ‘the dogs are howling, cops on the chase, it seems like I’m in outer space.’”

GOTHE wrote the guitar riff next, created a demo and sent it to Perdomo, a multi-instrumentalist and producer who’s featured in the music documentary Echo in the Canyon, and who LA Weekly dubbed as “the millennial answer to Todd Rundgren.“ Working together in the recording studio turned out to be a nearly telepathic experience. “Fernando is highly gifted and the fastest and hardest working musician I know,” Gothe says, “but we also have similar tastes in music.” “If I describe a certain sound that I’m looking for, he knows what it is before I finish my sentence.”

“Upside Down” is accompanied by a music video that’s directed and edited by Martin Yernazian, marking the fourth video they’ve collaborated on. “Martin has what some would call an old-school approach to his directing work,” Gothe says. “I would describe it more like an eclipse, raw and present.” Making music videos is a creative outlet that Gothe has enjoyed very much lately: “My last two videos have been story-driven, and it’s so much fun to see and be a part of the process of having my vision come to life,” he says. “Part of me has always wanted to be a cinematographer.”

GOTHE now has enough songs to record a follow-up album to Memento. But he has also started an additional project with Perdomo: a tribute album to the English progressive rock band Camel.

“They’re one of my all-time favorite bands, and the soundtrack of my life,” he says. “I’m co-producing this project with Fernando, since he also is a huge Camel fan. We just had Durga McBroom come in to record backing vocals for one of the tracks. Years ago I saw Durga perform with Pink Floyd, and I never would have guessed that years later she’d be singing in one of my projects.”

“After almost a year and a half of dark stages, we are so thrilled to be going back out on the road,” shares HARVEY. “I cannot wait for that first electric moment in front of a live crowd again, celebrating the return of music together! I expect lots of happy tears in the mosh pit on this run. Making the return even sweeter, we’re bringing along some of our favorite women in metal. This is our first female fronted tour package in the United States, a display of girl power at its finest!”

“We can’t wait to unleash ‘Goliath’ in the stage,” says guitarist HENRY FLURY. “Beware kids…we’ve been hibernating. On a scale of 1 to melted faces, get ready to receive an 11.”

JEREMY SQUIRES Debuts Haunting New Single + Music Video “DIMINISH” Taken From Upcoming Album ‘UNRAVEL’

DT: JULY 8, 2021

FM: MITCH SCHNEIDER, KELLY WALSH / SRO PR

FOLK SINGER/SONGWRITER & MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST
JEREMY SQUIRES
DEBUTS HAUNTING NEW SINGLE + MUSIC VIDEO
“DIMINISH”

FIRST LOOK HERE

TRACK FEATURED ON UPCOMING JULY 30th ALBUM
‘UNRAVEL’
VIA BLACKBIRD RECORD LABEL

Credit: Shelley Ann Squires

As dream-folk singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist JEREMY SQUIRES prepares to release his 11th studio album UNRAVEL—due out July 30 via the California-based Blackbird Record Label—he today (July 8) has unveiled the stirring video for new single “Diminish” which taps into his varied influences (including The Cure). Watch the atmospheric video featuring locations he frequents in his hometown of New Bern, North Carolina here. The single will be available tomorrow (July 9) at all streaming platforms.

“For me ‘Diminish’ represents change and finding beauty in unlikely places both literally and metaphorically,” shares SQUIRES.

He goes on to explain how the video came about and relates to the song, stating: “Photography is a passion for me, and I was photographing abandoned houses and structures around NC. While photographing I felt inspired to film these places. I found beauty and sadness in what some people might see as ugly or decrepit. Most of these places are hidden from plain view and I found peace and solace filming this video while some places I drive past every day, and I wanted them to be seen the way I see them… as hauntingly beautiful.”

Pre-save/add UNRAVEL across all digital platforms here:

https://smithmusic.ffm.to/jeremysquires_unravel.

CD’s and merch bundles will be offered exclusively via Bandcamp here: https://jeremysquires.bandcamp.com/merch.

 

Marking his most intimate and personal material to date, UNRAVEL’s 10 tracks merge distinctive songcraft with deeply felt vocals and musical performances that aim for the head and the heart. Written following the loss of his grandmother (who raised him), SQUIRES experiments with new instruments—writing his first-ever song on bass—and influences by building tracks with friends such as Erin Tate (ex-Minus The Bear) while somehow maintaining to effortlessly weave each track into a cohesive statement.

“When I listened back to this album, it seems like you can really see and feel what I was talking or singing about…it’s like a story,” he shares. “Lyrically it seems more in-depth. There’s something about this album that is more dreamy. I can see where it’s definitely different than anything that I’ve released.”

On the album’s artwork—illustrated by Kelley Wills/Brain Flower Designs—which can be seen featured below, SQUIRES explains, “For me swans are extremely significant as they are a symbol of grace, beauty and loyalty. Two swans (a pair) represent soulmates to me and the depth of a soul in general.”

If rock is dead, then POP EVIL is definitive proof of the afterlife. The Michigan-formed blue-collar band have created an unpredictable album, as its name suggests, which presents their most ambitious rebirth yet. Featuring the #1 mainstream rock hit single “Breathe Again”—their sixth #1 single to date—alongside heavyweight tracks “Set Me Free,” “Let The Chaos Reign,” and Top 10 single “Work,” VERSATILE is filled with fist-pumping anthems and timeless power ballads. Stream/download VERSATILE now at https://www.popevil-versatile.com.

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.

Folk Artist/Multi-Instrumentalist JEREMY SQUIRES Announces New Album ‘Unravel’ Out 7/30

DT: MAY 24, 2021

FM: MITCH SCHNEIDER, KELLY WALSH / SRO PR

FOLK ARTIST/MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST
JEREMY SQUIRES
ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM
‘UNRAVEL’
OUT JULY 30 VIA BLACKBIRD RECORD LABEL

SHARES INTIMATE MUSIC VIDEO/SINGLE
“ONLY IN MY DREAMS”
FILMED ACROSS HOMETOWN OF RURAL NORTH CAROLINA

UNRAVEL Cover Artwork by Kelley Wills (Brainflower Designs)

Adventurous folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JEREMY SQUIRES will release his 11th full-length album UNRAVEL on July 30 via Blackbird Record Label. It was written following the loss of his grandmother (who raised him) and two tracks were recorded in her home as a way of saying goodbye, making this his most intimate and personal material to date. UNRAVEL’s 10 tracks merge distinctive songcraft with deeply felt vocals and musical performances that aim for the head and the heart.

SQUIRES has shared its haunting and evocative debut single “Only In My Dreams”—released across digital platforms last Friday, May 21–with a music video that provides an introspective look at SQUIRES’ daily life filmed at various locations around his hometown of rural North Carolina. Watch the video below or on VEVO HERE. Stream “Only In My Dreams” here: https://smithmusic.ffm.to/jeremysquires_onlyinmydreams

“‘Only In My Dreams’ is an escape from reality but at the same time is a recollection of a specific moment in my life that I tried to portray in vivid detail,” SQUIRES says. “I wanted to bring the listener into that moment and share how different feelings can manifest and I wanted to expand on that.”

““I do a lot of driving through rural North Carolina,” he explains. “I always have my cameras and my phone on me and I get inspired by colors, country scenery, textures, the water, the sky, etc. The imagery in this video is of places that I frequent in my hometown, in surrounding counties and in my own backyard. I wanted to capture the dreamlike aspect of these beautiful places and I feel that it flowed with the song.”

Music and family has always been central to SQUIRES’ story from the start. When he was 11, his grandmother bought him an acoustic guitar in an antique store. He played and toured with punk bands as a young adult, until his son was born in 2001. His songwriting began to blossom–as heard on his first two albums originally released in 2012 (A Place to Hide and In the Dark) which he remastered and released during the pandemic. His music reflects his experiences of being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and PTSD and the trauma he’s endured throughout his life including losing his mother to opioid addiction and passing on his mental health issues to his son.

“My granny was the foundation of our family, and because my mom, my dad and my grandparents have all passed away, she was the last thing I had really,” reveals SQUIRES. “When she passed away, I felt like things were unraveling, but unraveling isn’t just a negative thing. It could be something unraveling into something beautiful, like a different story is about to start, or another chapter. For me I felt like things were going to fall apart, and then everything was OK in the end.”

On UNRAVEL, SQUIRES experiments with new instruments—writing his first ever song on bass—and influences by building tracks with friends such as Erin Tate (ex-Minus The Bear) while somehow maintaining to effortlessly weave each track into a cohesive statement. “When I listened back to this album, it seems like you can really see and feel what I was talking or singing about…it’s like a story,” he shares. “Lyrically it seems more in-depth. There’s something about this album that is more dreamy. I can see where it’s definitely different than anything that I’ve released.”

Rap/Rock Outfit REDDSTAR Release Debut Single/Music Video “STFU”

DATE: MAY 24, 2021

FROM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

RAP/ROCK OUTFIT
REDDSTAR
REVEAL DEBUT SINGLE/MUSIC VIDEO
“STFU”
OUT NOW VIA BLOOD BLAST DISTRIBUTION

BAND ANNOUNCED AS SUPPORT FOR AUGUST TOUR WITH RA

WATCH HERE

Newly formed outfit REDDSTAR introduce themselves with energetic and catchy mainstream rock anthems blended with rap undertones on their debut single “STFU,” recorded by Sahaj Ticotin (RA, Motley Crue, Starset). The single will be featured on their debut EP due out later this year. The band premiered its music video via V13 last week along with announcing an upcoming support slot with Ticotin’s band RA this August (dates listed below).The “STFU” was filmed at MixOne Soundstage while being directed remotely by Brian Cox (Bring Me The Horizon, Hollywood Undead) who was stuck at home in London due to the pandemic.

Drummer Mikey Lopez (ex-9Electric) details their experience making the video stating, “Filming the video for STFU was a great experience. Due to covid travel restrictions, our director, Brian Cox, had to lead us via Zoom from his home in London. Being told ‘try it again…with more sexy face’ through a laptop is just as cool as it sounds!”

“In a world where everyone’s so opinionated, people just need to learn how to shut the f*ck up sometimes,” declares vocalist Daemien Drake. “This is our reminder.”

Stream “STFU” now via Blood Blast Distribution across all digital streaming platforms here: https://backl.ink/146082183

Rounded out by bassist Erik Tisinger and drummer Russell Ray, REDDSTAR was formed in January of 2020 just before the pandemic hit. Refusing to be deterred by the halt of the industry, the band, who are located across three states (California, New Jersey and Florida), travelled to Fort Wayne, IN in late May to record their debut EP with Ticotin. Whatever obstacle stands in their way, whether location, time, or even a global pandemic, REDDSTAR have put their collective heads down and relentlessly powered through it. For many, 2020 was understandably a bad year but for REDDSTAR it was about rebirth and triumphing in the face of adversity.
