VIP & GA TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR UPCOMING SPRING TOUR WITH SHINEDOWN & THREE DAYS GRACE
APRIL 3 to MAY 9
HERE



FROM ASHES TO NEW have today (February 3) delivered an intense and captivating new single “Nightmare,” taken from their upcoming as-yet-titled fourth album due this summer via Better Noise Music. “Nightmare” masterfully showcases dual vocalists Matt Brandyberry and Danny Case expertise in contrasting heavy rock anthemic choruses with nu-metal/rap rock verses. ”Nightmare” takes listeners through the emotions of being betrayed and the nightmares that result which are presented in the track’s accompanying apocalyptic-themed music video directed by Josiahx (Distrubed, Miss May I) out now via YouTube HERE or seen streaming below.

“Betrayal by someone we trust happens to the best of us,” says CASE. “We befriend someone, let them in, build a connection and then all of a sudden they turn into someone unrecognizable. Someone you once trusted and cared for so deeply is now a backstabbing enemy. In a heartbeat, the person you once thought you knew is now gone. There aren’t many things in life that cut quite as deep as betrayal. Erasing that person from your life and moving forward is the only way to wake up from the nightmare.”

Stream “Nightmare” on all digital platforms HERE.

The Lancaster, PA-based group—Brandyberry (vocals), Case (vocals), Lance Dowdle (guitars) and Mat Madiro (drums)—will be on tour this spring, joining fellow Top 10 active rock-charting acts Shinedown and Three Days Grace across the East Coast and Midwest from April 3 to May 9 before appearing as some of the summer’s largest rock festivals including Welcome To Rockville (5/19 – Daytona Beach, FL) and Sonic Temple (5/27 – Columbus, OH). For tickets and dates, visit fromashestonew.com/tour.

Hailed as the “sweet spot of mass appeal where there’s a little something for everyone” (Knotfest), FROM ASHES TO NEW’s blend of hard rock, hip-hop, electronic and alternative music has built them a diverse and dedicated fanbase while garnering over 345 million streams, 55 million video views and four Top 10 singles. Prior to “Nightmare,” the band released two additional tracks from their forthcoming album: the reflective single “Heartache” and the fiery, vindictive track “Until We Break (feat. Matty Mullins of Memphis Mayfire)” which was also featured on the official soundtrack for the horror-thriller The Retaliators in which the band also appeared in with a guest role.

REDLIGHT KING Premiere New Track “Eye Of A Hurricane” From Upcoming March 3 Album ‘In Our Blood’ (AFM Records)

DT: FEBRUARY 2, 2023

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR


REDLIGHT KING
REVEAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR FIFTH SINGLE
“EYE OF A HURRICANE”
FROM THE CANADIAN AMERICAN ROCK OUTFIT’S
UPCOMING ALBUM
‘IN OUR BLOOD’
DUE MARCH 3 VIA AFM RECORDS

WATCH “EYE OF A HURRICANE” HERE
PRE-ORDER ‘IN OUR BLOOD’ HERE

 

REDLIGHT KING will reveal the fifth new music video single, “Eye Of A Hurricane,” from their anticipated fourth album IN OUR BLOOD due March 3 via AFM RECORDS. The video for “Eye Of A Hurricane” is out today, (February 2) via the Canadian-American rock outfit’s YouTube channel following the single’s digital release on Friday (1/20).“Eye Of A Hurricane” Watch/stream the “Eye Of A Hurricane” music video below or at https://bfan.link/Eye-Of-A-Hurricane.

IN OUR BLOOD was written and produced by frontman Mark “Kaz” Kasprzyk at his studio, The Wheelhouse, in Los Angeles, CA with long-time collaborator and guitarist Julian Tomarin, who also co-wrote a few tracks, and drummer Randy Cooke. The album sees REDLIGHT KING notch soaring new highs with a clutch of revved-up, guitar- powered bangers. What separates IN OUR BLOOD from so much of mainstream rock today is its unguarded sense of optimism. Challenging, introspective and complex themes run throughout all 11 tracks as a defiant undercurrent of hope. “I wanted fast, heavy rock songs and I wanted it to seamlessly translate to the live show, with a full rock band–something that was well-recorded but nothing too slick or overproduced,” shares KAZ. “I feel like my music has always been about telling people’s stories and saying what’s really going on from the grass roots perspective, with a bit of hope in the message.”

IN OUR BLOOD Track Listing:
1. Cold Killer
2. In Our Blood
3. King Again
4. Eye Of A Hurricane
5. Heavy Heart
6. Raise The Dead
7. Paid Off
8. End Of A Shotgun
9. Evil Lies
10. Do You Wanna Live
11. My Execution

REDLIGHT KING have developed a worldwide fanbase performing over 1,000 shows with some of the biggest names in rock and appearing at rock’s largest festivals across North America, UK and Europe. They’ve also performed on the late-night TV shows “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Formed in Hamilton, ON by Kaz, REDLIGHT KING made waves in 2011 with the release of their debut album SOMETHING FOR THE PAIN on Hollywood Records which featured the #3 Billboard Mainstream Rock single “Bullet In My Hand” and a reimagined version of Neil Young’s “Old Man” including a Young-approved sample from his original song. Their second album, IRONS IN THE FIRE, followed in 2013 with the single “Born To Rise” that’s heard in the end title credits for the Lionsgate sports drama blockbuster Draft Day. Additional music from the band has been featured in movies and tv shows such as The Avengers, Iron Man 3, The Italian Job, FOX’s ‘Malcolm In The Middle’ and CBS’ ‘Person of Interest’ in addition to being licensed across sports networks including ESPN, Nascar, NFL, CFL, NHL, NBA and MLB. On their third album, 2020’s MOONSHINE, REDLIGHT KING went back to basics by recording a very analog traditional rock sound with songwriter and producer Jimmy Messer (Foreigner, AWOLNATION) who released it on via his independent label, Parts & Labor Records.

Statement from OZZY OSBOURNE regarding 2023 European/UK Tour

FEBRUARY 1, 2023

Statement from OZZY OSBOURNE:

“This is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to share with my loyal fans. As you may all know, four years ago, this month, I had a major accident, where I damaged my spine.

My one and only purpose during this time has been to get back on stage. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak.

I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time, but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really FUCKS ME UP, more than you will ever know.

Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way. My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.

I want to thank my family……my band…….my crew……my longtime friends, Judas Priest, and of course, my fans for their endless dedication, loyalty, and support, and for giving me the life that I never ever dreamed I would have.

I love you all…”

Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.

World-famous French Nordic folk collective SKÁLD are excited to announce plans for the first leg of their debut North American headlining tour this April in support of their third album HULDUFÓLK due January 20 via Decca Records France / DECCA RECORDS U.S. (UMG). The band will kick off the tour stateside on April 12 in New York City at Le Poisson Rouge and will continue across the east coast and Midwest before making their way up to Canada where they’ll complete their routing April 19 at Theatre Fairmount in Montreal. Tickets are available now at https://skald.lnk.to/live. SKÁLD were last seen in 2022 on a headlining tour across Europe and have been showcased at several of Europe’s major festivals including Hellfest (FR), Wacken (DE), Rock Oz’Arenes (CH) and Motorcultor Festival (FR).

SKÁLD have also shared a the third track from HULDUFÓLK. It’s a distinctive cover of Rammstein’s hit single “Du Hast” with SKÁLD’s Viking-style Nordic folk spin which includes the use of traditional Scandinavian instrumentation dating back to the 14th century and shamanic percussion. Listen to “Du Hast” in the visualizer video below or streaming HERE. The collective previously covered The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” on their 2019 debut album Vikings Chant. It has since garnered over 35 million streams, making it their third most streamed track to date.

HULDUFÓLK was composed and produced by the collective’s mastermind Christophe Voisin-Boisvinet and features over a dozen musicians and songwriters. Sung entirely in Old Norse, the ancient language of Scandinavia, HULDUFÓLK transports listeners into a land inhabited by weird and wonderful creatures, and mysteries with its poetic and epic soundscape while sharing the myths and legends of Scandinavian poets and shamans with tales of otherworldly beings coexisting with humankind. The album’s debut single “Troll Kalla Mik” (“They Call Me Troll”) shares the lore of the “Huldufolk” (“hidden people”) and the dangers one faces when stepping into their realm. Their second single “Då Månen Sken” (“When The Moon Shone”) was released in December and tells the tale of the mythical femme-fatale Skogsrå, a forest nymph who lures men and binds their soul to the forest. Throughout its 12 tracks, further myths and legends are brought back to life.

JOHN LODGE, legendary bass player, songwriter and vocalist of The Moody Blues and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, is looking forward to his previously announced winter 2023 US tour, “Performs Days of Future Passed,” launching February 18 in Lexington, MA. LODGE, together with his 10,000 Light Years Band, will perform The Moody Blues’ iconic Days of Future Passed album—which marked its 55th anniversary on November 10, 2022—in its entirety, with a special recording by the late Graeme Edge and performances by Jon Davison of YES. The show will be rounded out by LODGE’s self-written classic hits “Ride My See-Saw,” “I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band),” and “Isn’t Life Strange.”

LODGE’s tour also coincides with the 50th anniversary of The Moody Blues’ 1972 album Seventh Sojourn (released November 17, 1972 in the US) which spent 5 weeks at Number 1 on Billboard. It featured the above-mentioned LODGE-penned hits “I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)” and “Isn’t Life Strange.”

“Seventh Sojourn was the last of the first seven ‘core’ albums, and for me it was the pinnacle of the Moody Blues as a ‘touring band,’” says LODGE.  “The two hit singles from the album, ‘I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock n Roll Band) and ‘Isn’t life Strange,’ I still feature in my solo shows. When I wrote those songs, I was younger than I am today, but it still amazes me at their continued relevance.  What I do know is that they mean as much to me today as they did then, and I can see in the audience that it means the same to them, too.  I always feel that we share the deep emotion–the journey, if you will–of these songs together.”

Below are the tour dates and more quotes from JOHN about the show. For tickets, VIP packages–which include a great seat, a personalized video message from John and exclusive merchandise, and more–please visit: https://johnlodge.com/tour.

For the 55th anniversary of Days of Future Passed, JOHN wanted to do something special to celebrate the album. The Moodies had embarked on a US tour in 2017 to celebrate the 50th, but regrettably stopped touring shortly after, and then, very sadly, Graeme Edge passed away in 2021. However, shortly before his passing, John and Graeme met and spent some special time together, and at that meeting Graeme told John how he hoped John would continue on with the music and keep the Moody Blues’ music alive.

JOHN returned home and realized that what he really wanted to do was revisit this iconic album, honor his lost friends Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge, and his other bandmates Justin Hayward and Mike Pinder, but also reimagine it for today.  How would he do it differently? Graeme had already recorded a special version of “Late Lament” for John, and John’s great friend (and future son-in-law) Jon Davison (of YES) had recorded “Nights in White Satin” for him, and so the stage was set; John went into the studio and began work with his Musical Director, Alan Hewitt, on both a new show and a new album, details of which are TBA.

The new show, based around the simple tale of “a day in the life of an everyday man,” will highlight all that made Days of Future Passed the ground-breaking album that it was–arguably the start of Progressive Rock.  It retains the core emotion of the original album and recreates its incredible orchestration, but at the same time it also brings in a modern feel thanks to the great strides in modern fidelity, and the maturity that comes with the passing of the years.  Listen to “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Peak Hour,” and more fill the room, and you’ll be taken back to 1967, but at the same time, you’ll hear what John has brought to this new version in his vocals, bass and harmonies, and how he sees the album 55 years later. In its own way, it can also be said to be a reflection of John’s own life.

The electrifying show will also feature a selection of JOHN’s above-mentioned self-written hits. Come and be taken back to The Moody Blues’ shows of the past, featuring JOHN LODGE and including tributes to all his bandmates.

Joining JOHN on stage is his 10,000 Light Years Band: long term collaborator Alan Hewitt (Music Director and Keyboards) and Billy Ashbaugh (Drums) from the Moody Blues touring band, together with Duffy King (Guitars) and Jason Charboneau (Cello). Jon Davison, lead vocalist of YES, will also light up the night with his special renditions of The Moody Blues’ “Nights in White Satin” and “Tuesday Afternoon.”

“As I said at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Graeme, Mike, Ray, Justin, and I, together with Tony, went into a studio, and seven days later we came out with an album that changed our lives forever,” says LODGE of Days of Future Passed.

He adds: “I’m sorry that the Moodies are no longer touring, and I miss my friends Ray and Graeme deeply, but as I looked back to the past, I realised that I also wanted to look forwards to the Future. My hope is that in this show, and album, you will get to revisit 1967, but at the same time, see how this album has grown with me, and with you. Thank to you the 10,000 Light Years Band, Jon Davison and, of course, Graeme, for their belief in this project and helping bring my vision to life. And thank you to all the fans for Keeping the Faith.”
