CORROSION OF CONFORMITY To Kick Off Gwar Eternal North American Tour 2014!


North Carolina crossover icons, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, will kick off a near month-long run of live tirades with Gwar tomorrow to finalize the year. Set to embark at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, British Columbia, the band will crumble the stages of twenty-six venues, coming to a close on December 13th at Baltimore Soundstage in Baltimore, Maryland.

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY continues to tour in support of their mammoth IX full-length released this past Summer via Candlelight Records. Dubbed "a triumph" by the Obelisk, the critically adored IX was captured by the band alongside longtime friend and colleague John Custer. Clocking in at nearly forty-five minutes, the record boasts all the groove-laden sludge/doom/punk concoction fans have come to expect from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY. The Onion's A.V. Club champions the band's "...smoke-wreathed grooves and sludgy rushes of belligerence," furthering that, "the album is a meat-and-potatoes feast," while Rock Revolt notes,"...this album contains the vital elements to satisfy the most fervid CORROSION OF CONFORMITY fan." Decibel Magazine agrees elaborating that, "COC stick to the recipe that served them well on both 2012's self-titled reboot and the follow-up EP, Megalodon: A little hardcore, a little crossover, a whole lotta Southern rock and (especially) doom metal, all stirred, shuffled, layered and frosted in ways that make guessing their next move impossible. But the band's strategies are more expansive this time out, their tricks more finely woven into the fabric of each song." Adds Blabbermouth, in an 8/10 rating, "COC are closer to their Animosity and (to some measures) Eye For An Eye roots than they've been in ages. Certainly IX is one of the loudest albums ever put down in this unit, so consider earplugs if you catch COC live."

KID ROCK TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM "FIRST KISS" FEBRUARY 24TH ON WARNER BROS. RECORDS

Detroit, MI - Kid Rock announces today that his new album "First Kiss" will be released on February 24th.  The album, his first on Warner Bros. Records, was produced by Kid Rock (with the exception of two songs which were co-produced by Dann Huff) and was recorded at his studio in Michigan.

Following the success of 2012's "Rebel Soul" and the accompanying "$20 Best Night Ever Tour," Kid Rock wasted no time getting back to work in the studio.  The massive touring on the last album cycle allowed Kid Rock to play in front of over 550,000 people in one summer, and left him energized to write and record new material without taking much of a break. Plans for an even more ambitious Summer 2015 tour with his Twisted Brown Trucker Band will be announced shortly.  "First Kiss" signals the continued evolution of one of music's most versatile performers, but we're not going to tell you what it sounds like - we just couldn't do it justice and we're confident the music will speak for itself.  If you do the math though, every record Kid Rock has released through WMG has gone platinum or multi-platinum (with the exception of Live Trucker and Rebel Soul which are both certified Gold), so it's safe to bet the legions of fans Kid Rock has cultivated over his 25 year career are going to enjoy this one too.
 
Expect the first single to be released at the top of the year with multi-format airplay, a music video, and the rest of the shitshow that goes with releasing an album.

CULTURE CLUB CANCEL NORTH AMERICAN AND U.K TOUR DATES

It is with great regret that the members of Culture Club have announced the cancellation of their tours in North America and the UK scheduled for November and December 2014.

It became necessary to do so this week when a polyp was discovered in George’s throat. The throat specialist has ordered George to not sing as it may necessitate an operation.
 
 
George and the band are devastated by this news and so it is with much regret that the tour is cancelled until further notice. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

“We are hoping we can reschedule the concerts for next year, and hopefully George’s problem will be resolved,” said the members of Culture Club.

The band wish George a speedy recovery and added ….“To our fans we wish to thank you for your loyalty and know that we love you all.”

AFI'S DAVEY HAVOK AND JADE PUGET REVEAL "CONFORMIST" MUSIC VIDEO


XTRMST TO RELEASE SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM MONDAY NOVEMBER 17 VIA DIM MAK RECORDS



AFI lead vocalist Davey Havok and guitarist Jade Puget have released the first music video for their straight edge hardcore band XTRMST. Making its debut on NOISEY, the video is for their first single "Conformist" - watch it here. The track is off the duo's self-titled debut album, which NOISEY boasts as "...dark, frantic, and moody, tinged with electronics and very slick." The LP is set for release next week on Monday November 17 via Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records. Pre-orders are now live for the album on iTunes, and you can grab the "Conformist" single HERE.

"Jade and I have been talking about starting a straight edge hardcore band for years," says Havok. "We started writing and recording in early 2012 and chose the name XTRMST because it expresses the messages represented on the record. The straight edge movement is not one of moderation. It's based in undeniable objective truths."

"The straight edge philosophy is something that Davey and I gravitated towards at a young age, drawn by concepts and ideals that seem almost foreign in modern society," says Puget. "Like much of the other subcultures we were a part of growing up, it put us at odds with 99% of the people around us, which was something we embraced. Being sXe for over 20 years and being musicians, it seemed natural that this crucial ideology would find a musical expression."

The 14-track XTRMST album was produced and mixed by Puget at his home studio and at The Treehouse in Los Angeles, and its November 17 release will come via Dim Mak Records, the indie label founded by DJ/producer (and former member of hardcore band This Machine KillsSteve Aoki. Although Aoki and Dim Mak are most often seen as leaders in the electronic dance music space, the release of the XTRMST album marks a return to Aoki and Dim Mak's hardcore roots. "I met Davey a while back and we bonded over our shared experiences in straight-edge culture. We found a lot of kinship there, and so it made sense for us to release an album that represents the spirit of what originally birthed Dim Mak," states Aoki. 

"These songs are the purest expression of emotion, with no thought towards commerce or accessibility," says Puget. "And the album was made with the amount of money you have in your pocket right now - just 2 people expressing their love and hate into microphones in a tiny room."
  
"XTRMST" track listing:
1. Words For the Unwanted
2. Conformist
3. Social Deathplay
4. Merciless
5. Exterminate
6. Sharper
7. Extremist
8. The Breed
9. Humanity

MY BROTHER THE WIND: Third Album From Swedish Cosmic Instrumental Act Now Playing At The Sleeping Shaman


Once There Was A Time When Time And Space Were One, the expansive, fully-analog, third full-length opus from Swedish instrumental act, MY BROTHER THE WIND, is now playing at The Sleeping Shaman in celebration of its official release this week.

MY BROTHER THE WIND is a fully improvisational cosmic rock collective consisting of members of widely known Swedish acts Makajodama, Magnolia, Animal Daydream and most notably Anekdoten, one of the more widely recognized names in the 1990s prog rock revival. Released by Laser's Edge instrumental music sector, Free Electric Sound, Once There Was A Time When Time And Space Were One transports the listener to another plane of existence, the record emitting forty-five minutes of completely natural, organic, cosmic jams. Engineered by Love Tholin at Drop Out Analogue in the Winter mountains of Åmål, Sweden, MY BROTHER THE WIND's organic sound is not captured simply through their recording practices and equipment, it all comes together naturally and progresses as a living being, completely improvised on the spot, recorded directly to two-inch tape on a circa 1969 sixteen-track Ampex in one day, then mastered by Hans Fredriksson. Fans of Popol Vuh, Amon Duul, Sun Ra, Träd, Gräs Och Stenar, Albert Ayler, Ash Ra Tempel, Gong, Pink Floyd and other visionary, psychedelic rock artists should not hesitate in exploring this record.

Exploratory rock/metal webzine, The Sleeping Shaman, is now hosting a stream of the entire Once There Was A Time When Time And Space Were One LP now at THIS LOCATION.

Also view the band's video for"Song Of Innocence" at The Obelisk HERE and an extensive trailer for the album HERE.

Once There Was A Time When Time And Space Were One is now available on digipak CD HEREand the digital download HERE. The deluxe LP will be available in the coming days.

Stand by for new live performances from MY BROTHER THE WIND to be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, review copies of their latest opus and interviews with the band are available.

"...the album offers an immersive, resonant listen, with tonal richness to spare and the presence of mind to keep a sense of motion even in its stillest parts and a balance of organic elements... This attention to sonic detail makes Once There was a Time When Time and Space were One more than just a collection of jams, and adds further purpose to the already worthy cause of My Brother the Wind's thoughtful musings, wandering and not at all lost." - The Obelisk

"Honestly, I can't say enough good things about Once There Was A Time When Time And Space Were One. It's an intoxicating album, with gorgeous soundscapes that literally can take your breath away. The haunting Mellotron of "Epilogue" is one of the most gorgeous passages you'll hear on a prog album this year, but in truth it's just one of many captivating parts of this wonderful album. Highest recommendations here! 5/5" - Sea Of Tranquility

"Swedish improvisational instrumental rockers My Brother the Wind deliver their most cohesive work to date with Once There Was a Time When Time and Space Were One, an album of soaring and exotic psychedelic space jams that flirt with ambient music and Kraut Rock along the way. 4/5" - About.com
  

French Horn Rebellion start national co-headline tour w Zak Waters ahead of FHR's Next Jack Swing Pt 1 album release 11/4


new: FRENCH HORN REBELLION "Last Summer Mixtape" stream/download HERE

"French horn is hard to play. Making hot beats is fun. Let’s make a band."
Love Is Dangerous in the big, bad city where late nights always bring out swingers on party patrol, hipster suits in dark alleys, beat-boxers at street corners and Poster Girls with Broken Hearts. It's Friday Night, baby and French Horn Rebellion's dance card is Void and Fancy Free.
FHR is Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, two Brooklyn-based brothers born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 2007, while hanging on a heartstring and daydreaming of Beaches and Friends, Robert had been playing French horn in the Chicago Civic Orchestra, got restless and decided to turn all attention to making dance music. After informing his conductor that Mahler isn’t fun anymore, Robert asked bassoon- toting older brother, David, to share this epiphany of self-emancipation. Our sordid tale of French Horn Rebellion's mission to deliver NextJackSwingto The Body Electric begins here.
Explains Robert, "We were trying to think of a way to engage kids who play in orchestra or band, and say, 'Hey. You guys can have fun too and this is how you do it.’ That's when the wheels started turning - we could make music the way we want to, and it’s OK."
David offers, "We realized that we had the power to create something of our own. The rebellion was about accepting wholeheartedly the uniqueness of who we are and using that as a driving force. We had to rebel against the status quo and focus on what drove us internally."
These self-proclaimed band geeks gone wild (BGGW) are often Up All Night crafting witty, hook-laden grooves, making reverent noise or Dancing Out on tour with a program of disco-etched lights, hi-octane special guests and a keg full of party-starter anthems. It's the French Horn Rebellion creed. "Could we really be having This Moment?" The answer is an explosive and resounding "Hell, Yeah!" FHR effortlessly weave between the seams of buzzy indie dance, electro, funk and psychedelia through to visceral new wave, rock and ambitious pop. David and Robert's sly productions, smart songs and giddy live shows manage to infuse their devoted disciples with a compulsive and joyous energy.
As FHR's resident pied piper, Robert concedes this bit of affable insight, "I play French horn really, really loud. That's the number one thing - live and loud! We're running around and ripping off Jimi Hendrix solos on French horn. It’s the equivalent of a pizza party in band class with Teddy Riley on the jukebox."
David's practical wisdom believes "Our rebellion is about getting the true, everyday meaning of being alive and forcing the bull-s**t out!"
French Horn Rebellion fan favorites like "Girls," "Caaalifornia," "Last Summer," "Johnny Smash," "Swing Into It" or the band's inspired cover of The Human League's perennial classic, "Don't You Want Me" continue to cement their NextJackSwing global takeover aspirations in the studio and on the road.
“Next Jack Swing is a genre we’ve created from the ‘New Jack Swing’ or ‘Swing Beat’ tradition of the late 80’s and early 90s, but using today’s technology to make the beats heavier, with funkier bass lines, and of course, putting in our own flair..." begins Robert with a knowing, mischievous tone. David finishes the missive, "...It's New Jack's kid brother seasoned by sweaty, basement dance-rages of eternal groove. It exposes everything we love about dance music!"
Over the years, French Horn Rebellion's emotive pop singles, illustrious dance e.p.'s, well-tailored remixes and an acclaimed album debut, "The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion" have received high praise, acclaim and obsession by such media hubs as: The Huffington Post, Billboard, BBC Radio 1, Entertainment Weekly, Jay Z's Life & Times, Interview Magazine, Spotify, Rolling Stone, VIBE, The Guardian, Bust, Mashable, Thissongissick, NY Daily News, VEVO, Q Magazine and Time Out. Additionally, FHR have had 10 self-released singles and mixes storm the top of the influential Hype Machine chart.
With their new record label, Ensemble Records enjoying a glorious bow this Summer introducing Slaptop's smash "Sunrise" (in conjunction with +1 Records) and a busy Williamsburg-based production compound and studio,YouTooCanWoo, churning out the hits, The Perlick-Molinari brothers of French Horn Rebellion are living their D.I.Y. manifesto to the fullest, noting the best is yet to come. It's clear that the group's engaging performer, A&R chief and French Horn-toting label honcho, Robert - partnered with David, the introspective studio geek, world domination enthusiast and production perfectionist, are gearing up for an international rebel party coup. FHR know You're All Right and want to assist with a bit of exclusive party intel.
David knowingly states, "A way the world can feel worthwhile is for its individuals to lead the charge. We are all worth the time and energy. This dance party is where we celebrate!"
Robert breaks it down even further, "I equate orchestra players with middle-class workers. You play the music on the page, listen to the conductor and go home. And I think orchestra players aren't appreciated, much like today's working man. That's why it's a rebellion: working guys, rebel!”

"The Brooklyn brother duo combines sick beats and thumping bass lines that (get) stuck in your head all day long."Bust Magazine
"I loved the sound of French Horn Rebellion at first listen - with that special blend of modern electronica fused with classic 80's Pop. French Horn Rebellion's new Next Jack Swing style combines classic/new, hot and cold, in a way that makes me - and I know others will - want to move !" - Grammy Award-Winning Pop/R&B Pioneer Jody Watley

Ugly Kids Club debut "Head Games" video on Idolator + playing CMJ 10/25


"rock-tinged, fiercely catchy electronic pop"
Idolator


Ugly Kids Club is made up of bright, yet haunting vocalist, Aliegh Shields, and Grammy-nominated rock producer, Steve Wilson. Experimenting with all the little sounds they love, from whimsical soundscapes to lush 80s synths, the Nashville-based duo crafts electro-pop driven tunes for ultimate enjoyment. Think pop-grunge band formed by Madonna, Andy Warhol and M83.

"Fans of Chvrches should give a listen to the new EP by Nashville's Ugly Kids Club."
The pair formed in 2011 over their love for minimalist rock duos like Sleigh Bells, Crystal Castles and The Kills. At the time, Steve was producing projects such as The Juliana Theory and Jonezetta, while writing, producing and playing in his own bands, The Class of ‘98 (The Militia Group) and Hether (Interscope Records). Aliegh, who was fresh out of high school and new to Nashville, was a guitar playing songstress with a solo development deal of her own. Already acquainted through Aliegh’s brother, Wilson came on to produce her solo tracks. In no time at all, the two uncovered a mutual desire to form a band and switched gears to create Ugly Kids Club. They were able to grab ahold of their own sound that encompassed a move toward the electronic pop genre while still paying tribute to their rock influences.
Ugly Kids Club’s self-titled debut EP earned them recognition in over 50 music blogs, a Hot 100 Band in Music Connection Magazine and spins on Sirius XM U radio. After a slew of shows with bands like Five Knives, Tesla Rossa, and Coin, Ugly Kids Club set their focus on a new set of songs with their recently releasedHead Games EP.
