Protest The Hero reveal brand new video for 'Underbite'

PROTEST THE HERO: VIDEO FOR ‘UNDERBITE’ LAUNCHES TODAY
NEW STUDIO ALBUM, ‘VOLITION’, OUT THIS WEEK

Protest The Hero reveal brand new video for 'Underbite'

In celebration of the launch of brand new album, ‘Volition’, Protest The Hero today release their new video for the track ‘Underbite’. Carrying on their tradition of being totally non-traditional, the clip features the band members as finger puppets.

PTH comments:

"We admit, we have had some pretty outlandish ideas for music videos in the past. We may not have hit it out the park with all of those ideas – but something tells me we are close with this one.
When we brought up the idea of a full-blown puppet video to our friend / directer Marc, he laughed in our faces. He continued laughing for weeks until he remembered that a friend of his knew how to make wonderful little paper puppets. That's when he got serious.
He took on the idea with every bit of his creative being, and this is the result. You may not like the song, you may not agree with the lyrics, but if you don’t like the video, we don’t like you."

Below is the video for ‘Underbite’

The ‘Volition’ world tour is now underway, kicking off in Canada and coming to the UK in February 2014. The UK dates are as follows:-

01.02.14 UK Brighton @ Concorde 2
02.02.14 UK Birmingham @ O2 Academy2
04.02.14 UK Sheffield @ Corporation
05.02.14 UK Glasgow @ Classic Grand
06.02.14 UK Manchester @ Academy2
07.02.14 UK London @ The Electric Ballroom

‘VOLITION’ DEBUTED AT #20 IN THE U.S. AND #7 IN CANADA.

Scott Stapp Set To Release New Album Next January 20th

The new album Proof Of Life, out next year, includes lead track 'Slow Suicide'. 

Scott Stapp Set To Release New Album Next January 20th

Grammy-Award winning artist Scott Stapp releases the deeply personal 'Proof of Life' on January 20th 2014.

Frontman Stapp's second solo album 'Proof Of Life' follows on from 2005's 'The Great Divide', and features 11 new songs including lead track 'Slow Suicide'.

As vocalist with US outfit CREED, Stapp has sold nearly 30 million albums around the world, had three Grammy nominations and one win for ‘Best Rock Song’ with ‘With Arms Wide Open’, plus 11 US Number One Singles.

And now, Stapp returns to solo duty with ‘Proof of Life’, featuring drummers Kenny Aronoff & Josh Freese, plus guitarists Phil X & Ken Pierce, amongst others.

Stapp says:

"This is the most meaningful record of my career. I’ve made a lot of messes in my life, but I’ve learnt that I can take a mess and turn it into a message. This album chronicles my struggles, my journey and it’s the most honest record I have ever written.”

Having published his autobiography, the ultra-candid ‘Sinner’s Creed’, last year, Stapp is now ready to continue his solo musical journey, and ‘Proof of Life’ is sure to appeal to the legions of Creed fans, along with anyone with an ear for a good song delivered direct from the heart…

 “Y’know,” continues Stapp, “the fans have always meant everything to me, and over the years they’ve come to me and told me how through my music they’ve gotten through the worst of times, and that hit me. With this album, it’s the first time that when I listened back to the tracks, it became a cathartic experience for me.”

Proof of Life Track Listing is as follows:

1. Slow Suicide
2. Who I Am
3. Proof of Life
4. New Day Coming
5. Only One
6. Break Out
7. Hit Me More
8. Jesus Was A RockStar
9. What Would Love Do
10. Crash
11. Dying To Live

A life-long Christian and a dedicated rocker, Stapp is looking to start a world tour in March 2014.

Protest The Hero Release Lyric Video For 'A Life Embossed'

Protest The Hero Release Lyric Video For 'A Life Embossed'

Due to the overwhelming response to the lyric video for the track ‘Clarity’ from their forthcoming album ‘Volition’, issued via Spinefarm Records on November 4th, Protest the Hero today release a lyric video for one of the more socially conscious songs on the record, ‘A Life Embossed’.

Lead singer Rody Walker, who wrote the lyrics for the track, says:

“The boys in PTH are long-time dog lovers, and it has come to our attention that there's injustice afoot! Our home of Ontario Canada is the largest territory in all the world to pass legislation that discriminates against a specific breed of dog. This is a worldwide issue that the band is incredibly disturbed by. The song and video for ‘A Life Embossed’ attempts to draw much-needed attention to an issue that effects all dog lovers alike.”

‘Volition’ will be supported by a world tour, starting November 7th in Ottawa, Canada, and in the UK on February 1st 2014.

Volition is also available for pre-order at http://goo.gl/Ksd93Q iTunes.

Protest the Hero will be returning to the UK in February 2014 as part of their headline European tour. Supporting Protest the Hero on this string of dates will be UK outfits Tesseract & The Safety Fire, plus Toronto-based Intervals.

Protest The Hero Announce New Drummer

Protest The Hero Announce New Drummer

AFTER THE departure of long-time drummer, Moe Carlson, Protest the Hero enlisted Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler to fill the position for the recording of their forthcoming album, ‘Volition’ – set for release (ex-N. America) via Spinefarm Records on October 28th.

Now with extensive touring on the horizon, the band has decided to fill the slot permanently, with Mike Leradi being welcomed into the fold.

Here is the statement from the band:-

"Finding a new drummer has proven to be a tough task! We had interest and video submissions from many friends, fans, and family alike (yes, Choadie's mom sent in a video of her ripping ‘C'est La Vie!’). Every single one of those submissions was wonderful, but we realised it was going to be impossible to select a drummer based on a YouTube video. We needed someone we knew. Someone who we thought we wouldn't murder and leave at the side of the road two weeks into a tour. We think we have found that person in Mike Ieradi – a Canadian fella we met many moons ago.

“What's that you say? Mike is already in another band? Yes, he is. He will be playing in two bands on this upcoming tour of North America. He will be opening with his band The Kindred, and will then wrap the night up playing with us. Despite pulling double duty on this tour, he IS the newest member of pth and will hopefully be with us until we hang up the old jazz picks. No pressure, Mike! "

Mike Ieradi comments:-

"Hey everyone! Mike Ieradi here, and happy to announce my new role in Protest the Hero. I'm excited to be a full blown member of a great band with some great friends, and looking forward to the future with these goons. Stoked to see everyone out on this upcoming tour, and I hope you enjoy watching me sweat my way through two sets with Protest and The Kindred. It should be a fun one!”

The PTH world tour commences on November 7th in Ottawa, Canada. The band will hit shores in February 2014 as part of their headline European tour. Supporting Protest the Hero on this string of dates will be UK outfits Tesseract & The Safety Fire, plus Toronto-based Intervals.
Dates for the UK run are below:-
01.02.14 UK Brighton @ Concorde 2
02.02.14 UK Birmingham @ O2 Academy2
04.02.14 UK Sheffield @ Corporation

ABOUT GHOST B.C.
Hailing from Linköping, Sweden, Ghost B.C. formed in in 2008. They released their heralded debut album, Opus Eponymous, on October 18th, 2011. UK's Metal Hammer praised the album saying it was "an arcane occult feast”, while in the US Decibel Magazine said they "compel on pretty much every sensory level”, and the Village Voice proclaimed "Ghost is Swedish, heavy, and tasked with slicing your soul to bits – or at least your ears”. In 2011, Ghost B.C. performed at the annual Download Festival in the United Kingdom. The band's fan-base began to swell, and not long after added some of hard rock's finest to this group. Additionally that year, Ghost B.C. took part in the ‘Defenders Of The Faith III’ tour with Trivium, In Flames & Rise To Remain. In early 2012, Ghost B.C. embarked on their first tour of the United States, and later that year they shared the stage with Mastodon and Opeth on their ‘Heritage Hunter Tour’ in North America. That summer, the band was invited by Metallica's James Hetfield to perform on the main-stage of Metallica's first annual ‘Orion Music + More’ festival.

The Cadillac Three Confirm Debut UK Show

+ NEW ALBUM, ‘TENNESSEE MOJO’, SET FOR RELEASE VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS ON NOVEMBER 11th

The Cadillac Three Confirm Debut UK Show

THE CADILLAC THREE will visit the UK for the first time this winter; the raw rockin’ trio – from Nashville, Tennessee – have announced a headline show for the Barfly in North London on December 3rd.

This one-off date will come hard on the heels of the band’s debut album, ‘Tennessee Mojo’, scheduled for release through Spinefarm Records on November 11th.

Recorded by vocalist / guitarist Jaren Johnston, bassist Kelby Ray & drummer Neil Mason, the record – fashioned “in a basement” on late nights and strong whiskey – is a ragged, honest, gritty, groove-ridden 13-tracker that sees the ‘crazy cajun’ musicians blending the spirit and values of country with the bite of hard rock.

The lead single & title track, ‘Tennessee Mojo’, scheduled for October 14th, neatly straddles the line between the two, showing just what can be achieved when the pick-up truck is given some serious fuel-injection.
If The South really is gonna rise again, you get the feeling that these sons of Nashville (yes, they have appeared on the TV show… and shared stages with Skynyrd and ZZ Top) will be leading the charge.

PROTEST THE HERO LAUNCH INTERACTIVE FAN-SOURCING EXPERIENCE TO REVEAL THE ‘REAL’ ARTWORK FOR NEW ALBUM ‘VOLITION’, RELEASED OCTOBER 28th VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS…

Protest The Hero Reveal The 'Real' Artwork For 'Volition'

iTUNES PRE-ORDER GOES LIVE TODAY

CONTINUING THE sleight-of-hand marketing skills that have defined their career, Protest the Hero today announce that the artwork revealed two weeks ago as the cover for their new album, Volition, is not the actual cover art but instead the artwork for the digital version of the record.

The band have created an interactive app to reveal the true art. Below is the app description from the guys themselves…

“Today we launch a unique, interactive fan-sourcing experience to reveal the Jeff Jordan-created artwork for our forthcoming album, Volition. Playing off the night vision-equipped vultures featured in the artwork, each fan’s visibility is restricted to the immediate area surrounding their cursor, giving them limited access to the illustration. Each visitor’s viewfinder moves simultaneously amongst the others, forming a real-time flock of crowd-sourced clarity – fans must work together to expand their collective vision and reveal the artwork in its entirety. The link for the app is: http://volition.protestthehero.ca

Also today, Volition is available for pre-order on iTunes. Those pre-ordering the album will be able to immediately download the first single from Volition, “Clarity”, the lyric video for which has already been revealed. Pre-order Volition from iTunes here. 

Volition is also available for pre-order here - Amazon (signed exclusive).

Protest the Hero will be returning to the UK in February 2014 as part of their headline European tour. Supporting Protest the Hero on this string of dates will be UK outfits Tesseract & The Safety Fire, plus Toronto-based Intervals.

The Almighty: 'Re-F**kin'-issues!' Re-Fuckin-Scheduled For January 2014 Via Spinefarm

CLASSIC EARLY ALBUMS SET FOR OFFICIAL RE-RELEASE COMPLETE WITH BONUS AUDIO & VISUAL CONTENT…

The Almighty: 'Re-F**kin'-issues!' Re-Fuckin-Scheduled For January 2014 Via Spinefarm

ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED for September 30th, the first two Almighty Re-issues – ‘Blood, Fire & Love’ (first released in 1989) & ‘Soul Destruction’ (first released in 1991) – have now been rescheduled for January 20th 2014.

In an effort to make these new versions as complete as possible, the release date has been put back, and extra attention given to the early work of a band (formed in Scotland in 1988) who have long been regarded as influential, splicing elements of rock, punk & metal, and notching up a Top 5 UK album and successive Top 30 singles.

Musically, The Almighty staked their ground between Motorhead & ‘Electric’-era Cult, which made their early Polydor releases – five albums, starting with ‘Blood, Fire & Love’ – a breath of fresh air for riff-hungry rock fans the world over; and now, with their reputation continuing to flourish, Spinefarm has taken over from Polydor (the band’s original home) as the label co-ordinating the Re-issue campaign…

THE INITIAL batch of Re-issues (fully official and put together under band supervision) will appear beneath the ‘RE-F**KIN’-ISSUES’ banner and be divided into two parts – the first pair of titles coming out on January 20th and the following releases a couple of months later.

All of the Re-issues will come complete with extensive bonus content, including live, studio, remix & acoustic recordings, plus liner notes, special packaging and track-by-track comments from Almighty main-man Ricky Warwick, now fronting Black Star Riders / Thin Lizzy.

There is also talk of live Almighty shows featuring key original members, along with a brand new studio album.

There’s still no stoppin’ them. Al-f**kin’-mighty, all-f**kin’-hail!

Santa Cruz frontman/singer/guitarist, Archie, says:-

“Me & the boys had the time of our lives when we first played the UK this summer, so we are beyond excited to get back there so soon! Last time, we had just two gigs, but this time, with nine dates accompanying Kobra And The Lotus, we can REALLY get the show on the road. So now our fans from outside Nottingham & London, who didn't get to see us last time, can come along and rock hard! Get your game-face on, folks, 'cause Cruz is coming & Cruz will kill! Let's get the party started!!”

Loved by Children Of Bodom’s Alexi Laiho (“the awesome guitar playing makes me wanna bang my head into two pieces!”), ‘Screaming…’ is a bold statement from a band who have been together since 2007, and who have spent the past few years cutting their musical teeth via two EP releases plus some intensive home country gigging.

Debut album, ‘Screaming For Adrenaline’, is available now via Spinefarm Records, and features the current single, ‘Nothing Compares To You’.
