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.”

UNRAVEL Track Listing
1.  My Last Song
2. Fade
3. Only In My Dreams
4. Aurora
5. Unravel
6. Dream Walking

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.

REDDSTAR TOUR DATES

8/20 – Madison, WI @ The Annex
8/21 – Fort Wayne, IN @ Pierre’s
8/22 – Joliet, IL @ The Forge
8/24 – Des Moines, IA @ Lefty’s

Punk/Alt-Rock Trio KNIFES Announce Second EP, Reveal Lyric Video For Debut Single “Scammers”

DT: MAY 13, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, ANDREA FAULK / SRO PR

PUNK/ALT-ROCK TRIO
KNIFES
ANNOUNCE SECOND EP
‘REGRESSION TO THE MEAN’
OUT JUNE 11

SHARE LYRIC VIDEO FOR DEBUT SINGLE
“SCAMMERS”
OUT TOMORROW (MAY 13)
WATCH HERE

BAND FORMED OF TOUR/BACKLINE TECHS FOR TOP ARENA ROCK ACTS

Lineup (l-r): Warren Johnson, Ben Young, Brian Diaz
Photo Credit: Brian Diaz

Prior to the halt of live music due to the pandemic, punk/alt-rock trio KNIFES was formed after members BEN YOUNG (vocals, guitars), BRIAN DIAZ (bass) and WARREN JOHNSON (drums) met while working on tours for some of the world’s biggest rock bands including Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy, Guns N’ Roses, Slipknot, Deftones and Stone Temple Pilots. After YOUNG was asked to fill in for Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson on a series of dates, he started working on his own material and the rest is history. The band are back with their next installment of virulent riffs and contagious melodies on their second EP, REGRESSION TO THE MEAN, scheduled for release on June 11.

Today, Thursday, May 12, KNIFES are premiering the lyric video for the EP’s debut single, “Scammers”—an aggressive ode to ignoring your intuition with instantly catchy riffs and beguiling vocals. The track will be available for streaming on all digital platforms on May 14. Watch the video streaming below and pre-save “Scammers” now at this link: https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/knifes1/scammers

“You know that feeling when everything in you is telling you to run away in fear, but you don’t?” questions YOUNG. “That’s what ‘Scammers’ is about, but from the perspective of a gentlemanly serial killer that is full of charm, à la Ted Bundy.”

KNIFES – “Scammers” Lyric Video

REGRESSION TO THE MEAN was self-produced by KNIFES at various locations around Los Angeles and was mixed by Ethan Mates (Linkin Park, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Korn). The EP stays loyal to the 90s alt-rock influences that KNIFES are known for, continuing to subvert catchy pop melodies with time signature changes and monumental guitar riffs while showcasing a natural evolution into more transgressive themes and new approaches to songwriting. It consists of four original songs and a cover of the P.F. Sloan protest song “Eve of Destruction,” popularized by Barry McGuire.

“Serial killers, cocaine and car crashes,” exclaims YOUNG. “These are the themes that found their way onto Knifes’ second EP, ‘Regression To The Mean.’ It is a feral house cat pretending to play nice so it can come indoors. Don’t let your guard down.”

REGRESSION TO THE MEAN is not a quarantine album though—KNIFES had been working on recording these songs long before being confined to their homes. “We were supposed to be onstage tuning guitars with Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer last summer,” laments bassist Brian Diaz, “but then we suddenly found ourselves with extra time on our hands to finish these songs.”

REGRESSION TO THE MEAN Track Listing:

              1. “Scammers”
              2. “Shorter Way”
              3. “Sparky Wire”
              4. “Point of Impact”
              5. “Eve of Destruction”

PISTOLS AT DAWN – “Now Is The Time” Official Music Video

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. Read more about the band’s history and upcoming plans in their chat with hometown daily paper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, HERE.

Alt Rock/Pop Punk Trio CITY OF THE WEAK Release Politically Charged Single “United Hate Division”

DT: APRIL 26, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

ALTERNATIVE ROCK/POP PUNK TRIO
CITY OF THE WEAK
DEPICT SATIRICAL LOOK AT MODERN DAY POLITICS WITH NEW SINGLE / MUSIC VIDEO
“UNITED HATE DIVISION”

LISTEN/WATCH HERE

Minneapolis-based trio CITY OF THE WEAK provoke listeners to evaluate their stance on the current state of political and social affairs with their brand new single, “United Hate Division.” The rousing single was released last Friday (April 23) across all digital platforms in conjunction with the premiere of its satirical music video unveiled by MXDWN. “‘United Hate Division’ is a hard-hitting track combining elements of metal, hard-rock and pop punk…” notes MXDWN. “The song is political without polarizing itself into left or right, instead expressing the opinion that many Americans feel – that both sides of the system are out for themselves.”

United Hate Division” was mixed by Chris Collier (Korn, Prong) and produced by Brandon Friesen (The HU, The Kooks, Billy Ray Cyrus) whom CITY OF THE WEAK recently enlisted to record their upcoming yet-to-be-titled sophomore album due this fall.

“We had a blast getting really creative and chaotic with this video,” shares vocalist Stef w/ an ‘F. “The concept shines a light on how divided our country currently is and reminisces how easily we once came together over something as simple as a Netflix series.”
