FILTER TO RELEASE BRAND NEW STUDIO ALBUM, ‘THE SUN COMES OUT TONIGHT’, ON JUNE 3RD 2013

Multi-platinum US rockers FILTER unleash their sixth studio album and Wind-Up/Spinefarm Records debut, The Sun Comes Out Tonight, on June 3rd 2013.
Described as "a combination of grunge heat and industrial ice" by Rolling Stone, few rock groups have so consistently torn up the rule book and ploughed their own path, the music – contemporary, intelligent & unorthodox – topped off by the signature roar of front-man, former Nine Inch Nails associate & band nucleus, Richard Patrick.
Now, in 2013, guitarist Jonny Radtke (ex-Kill Hannah) has joined the ranks as co-conspirator, helping to define the brand new body of work that is The Sun Comes Out… – a glorious industrial rock fusion recorded at Blue Room Studios in Los Angeles with Bob Marlette (Atreyu, Shinedown, Seether) at the production helm.
Since the release of their self-produced debut album, ‘Short Bus’, back in 1995, Filter have carved out a decorated career taking in soundtracks, remixes, hit singles (including breakthrough track ‘Hey Man, Nice Shot’), chart success and record sales in the millions, and The Sun Comes Out… sees the band not just back in the international spotlight but back out on tour, with US dates lined up from late May onwards (the ‘Summerland’ tour).

TRACK LISTING FOR THE SUN COMES OUT TONIGHT:
1. We Hate It When You Get What You Want
2. What Do You Say
3. Surprise
4. Watch The Sun Come Out Tonight
5. It’s Got To Be Right Now
6. This Finger’s For You
7. Self Inflicted
8. First You Break It
9. Burn It
10. Take That Knife Out Of My Back
11. It’s My Time
12. It’s Just You

A free track, We Hate It When You Get What You Want, is available now via the band’s website.
2013 UK festival appearances plus selected headline dates for the late summer will be announced shortly.

reckless love release 'night on fire' single/video today

NEW SINGLE/VIDEO, ‘NIGHT ON FIRE’, RELEASED TODAY!

Watch the video here

 

reckless love release 'night on fire' single/video today

RECKLESS LOVE, the flamboyant Finnish rockers who burst spectacularly onto the UK scene in 2010, release their brand new single/video, ‘Night On Fire’, today via Spinefarm Records. The song is taken from their upcoming third studio album (title yet to be revealed), which sees the four pushing their signature blend of sleaze-rock riffs and huge commercial choruses to even greater heights…

Frontman Olli Herman says:-

“‘Night On Fire’ is the pure essence of Reckless Love; a deceitfully catchy tune with an awesome big sing-along chorus and a fierce guitar solo. It embodies all of our biggest ’80s influences from KISS and Van Halen to Def Leppard and Europe. ‘Night On Fire’ also has this exotic Shakira-esque groove to it, which'll make you dance, or if dancing ain't your cup of tea, nod your head until you break your neck!”

The video for 'Night On Fire' was shot over consecutive nights in the Canary Islands following a full week in Las Palmas, “lazing around, taking it easy, enjoying cold beer and hot weather,” according to Olli – it’s alright for some!

Production credits include award-winning film director Marko Mäkilaakso (known for both his music videos and his feature-length films, such as ‘Deadly Descent’, ‘War Of The Dead’, etc.), cinematographer Juge Heikkilä, and producer Teemu Virta for Twisted Films Inc.

Olli continues:-

“We all have active and vivid imaginations, but we wanted to keep things pretty simple for the video – we're portrayed as a demonic product of Baron Samedi, a spirit god of Haitian Voodoo. This is the ‘dark side’ of Reckless Love... hahaha (evil, yet sarcastic laugh)…”

A full UK headline tour is scheduled for the autumn of 2013, with selected festival appearances also being discussed. Previously, Reckless Love have appeared at the Download and Firefest events over here, as well as headlining tours, playing London residencies, touring with Black Veil Brides and releasing such irresistible singles/videos as ‘Beautiful Bomb’, ‘Romance’ and ‘Hot’.

STREAM UNRELEASED KILLING JOKE TRACK VIA BROOKLYN VEGAN!

The legendary Killing Joke is, like many of the great bands of our time, unique and generally unclassifiable. Punk in both ethos and origin, the UK band has dippied its toe in industrial, metal, funk and dance music in their close-to-35-year career, carving out their own niche and more importantly their own sound. Jaz Coleman and co are currently touring the US, and played Irving Plaza last week.

On May 14, Killing Joke will survey the damage caused with the new double-disc, The Singles Collection 1979 - 2012, due on Spinefarm. The two-disc set will come with a third for a limited time, with that disc adding rarites and more unreleased studio tracks including "Four Stations Of The Sun." Check out the studio version of that track, a remix of which appeared on the 1998 LP Wardance - The Remixes,  for the first time, next to the "Timewave" demo RIGHT HERE!!!

TURBOGEIST RELEASE BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR 'MERMAIDS REVENGE'

RELEASE BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR SINGLE, ‘MERMAID’S REVENGE’,
FROM DEBUT EP, ‘ANCIENT SECRETS’, OUT NOW!

Watch the video below...

TURBOGEIST RELEASE BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR 'MERMAIDS REVENGE'

LONDON-BASED rockers, Turbogeist, have released the video for current single, ‘Mermaid’s Revenge’ – a number from their 5-track EP, ‘Ancient Secrets’, available now via Spinefarm Records.

Having already received airplay from Radio One’s Dan P. Carter & Zane Lowe, as well as XFM DJ Ian Camfield, Turbogeist are causing a well-deserved stir within the underground.

“Any band who sounds like they have been listening to Fugazi’s ’13 Songs’ on repeat is good by me!” – Dan P. Carter, Radio One DJ.

Says Turbogeist guitarist / vocalist, Luis Felber...

“Being a youth in the ’90s, with Brit Pop, Grunge, Hip Hop and great rock bands emerging on the radio and music television, we were spoilt for choice. Nowadays, everything seems too polished. However, if you look beyond the void of Mercury Awards and Coldplay B-sides, there are great underground scenes/bands emerging...”

THE VIDEO for ‘Mermaid’s Revenge’, filmed in London, was directed by Michael McCool and animated by Nicos Livesey & Nick Dunn of the ‘This Is It’ collective. Nick Dunn worked his wizardry on previous Turbogiest video, ‘Alien Girl’.

“In this new video, we had a lot more fun. We got super-involved in the whole development process... It's really more like a mini-movie. I mean, it's no Scorsese's 'Bad', but Michael McCool is seriously on his way to being one of the greats...

“The ’90s and the noughties brought us Britney in school uniform and Backstreet Boys in space. The art of the video needs to be taken back to the ’80s, to raw creativity and fun” – Luis Felber

ON THE live front, Turbogeist will be appearing at Takedown Festival 2013 alongside acts such as Don Broco, While She Sleeps and The Blackout; the festival takes place at Southampton University on May 1st. They have also been confirmed to play London’s Camden Rocks Festival on June 1st 2013, which will see over 100 bands playing across 12 venues in the capital’s home of rock ‘n’ roll.

Tickets are available here:
Takedown Festival
Camden Rocks

The ‘Ancient Secrets’ EP features 4 brand new Turbogeist tracks, as well as a cover of ‘Up Front’ by influential US punk band, The Wipers. Sleeve art was provided by British artist Nicholas Rea and depicts a man in ‘supernatural woods’, originally hand-painted on ceramic tiles.

The debut Turbogeist album is already in the can, and will follow later in 2013, once again through Spinefarm.

CHTHONIC RELEASE SEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM, BÚ-TIK, ON JUNE 3RD

TAIWANESE METALLERS, Chthonic, have confirmed a June 3rd release for their seventh studio album, ‘Bú-Tik’, via Spinefarm Records.

Recorded at Sweden’s Sweetspot Studio by producer Rickard Bengtson, who also worked on 2011’s ‘Takasago Army’, ‘Bú-Tik’ sees the band returning to the scene with their signature brand of symphonic ‘orient metal’, as they choose to define it; as usual, the musicians continue on their mission to build awareness of the myths of Taiwan and thetragic events in their country's history.

‘Bú-Tik’ – based around the story of the 228 Massacre, the Bú-Tik Palace and the Mirror Of Retribution – highlights “righteous violence & justifiable defence”; once more, it takes the listener deep into the folklore & history of exotic Taiwan…

Says bassist and band spokesperson, Doris Yeh:-

“We are very proud to present ‘Bú-Tik’ to the world; it talks about self-defence, righteous violence and the armed spirits! With this album, we have pushed ourselves to achieve new heights – heights we've never imagined before! We are leading metal fans to the next episode of Chthonic!”

Track-listing:-

01. Arising Armament (intro)
02. Supreme Pain For The Tyrant
03. Sail Into The Sunset’s Fire
04. Next Republic
05. Rage Of My Sword
06. Between Silence And Death
07. Resurrection Pyre
08. Set Fire To The Island
09. Defenders Of Bu-tik Palace
10. Undying Rearmament (Outro)

First single, 'Defenders Of Bú-Tik Palace’, will be made available digitally shortly via Spinefarm Records, with a very special video to follow…

“For this clip, the first in a series of four, we decided to put ourselves through one month of martial arts training, to prepare ourselves properly,” explains Doris. “Finally, a couple of days ago, we filmed the video over a 24 hour period, and we are all now covered in bruises and completely exhausted… it’s not easy to go at it for such an extended period!”

ON THE live front, Chthonic are confirmed to play on the Pepsi Max Stage on Saturday, June 15th at the Download Festival 2013, set to take place over the weekend of June 14th - 16th at its historical stamping ground of Donington Park.

Chthonic last appeared at Download in 2011, but for this follow-up show they are returning in greater numbers, the plan being to utilise the skills of the oriental orchestra…

Says Doris:-

“This is the first time we’ll have played with the orchestra outside of Taiwan. We’re really hoping to present a show that people will be talking about for some time to come…”

Tickets for Download 2013 are available here: http://www.downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets

FROM Fuji Rock & Loud Park in Japan, through to Ozzfest in the US, Bloodstock & Download in the UK, and Wacken Open Air in Germany, Chthonic have already made their mark around theworld, touring in over 30 countries, picking up awards (including the Golden Melody Award – the Taiwanese equivalent of a Grammy), featuring on magazine front covers, supporting political causes, releasing photo books, appearing in the charts and of course making powerful, unique music steeped in their ownculture.

Plans are currently being discussed for an autumn UK tour.

You can pre order 'BÚ-TIK' here

ICONIC ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FRONTMAN RELEASES NEW STUDIO ALBUM, ‘HORNS AND HALOS’, ON AUGUST 26TH 2013 VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS 

+ NEW VIDEO/SINGLE FOR ‘BALLAD OF THE LOWER EAST SIDE’

michael monroe announces new album for August 26th Release

Watch the video here

Vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, uber-energetic front-man & all-round rock ‘n’ roll legend, Michael Monroe, has confirmed the release of new studio album, ‘Horns And Halos’, for August 26th 2013 via Spinefarm Records; this is the follow-up to 2011’s critically-acclaimed ‘Sensory Overdrive’, winner of Classic Rock Magazine’s ‘Album Of The Year’ and a No. 1 record in MM’s Finnish homeland.

Monroe’s touring & recording outfit – bassist Sami Yaffa (ex-Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls), guitarist Steve Conte (ex-New York Dolls/Company Of Wolves), guitarist Dregen (Backyard Babies, formerly of Hellacopters fame) and drummer Karl ‘Rockfist’ Rosqvist (ex-Chelsea Smiles/Danzig) – have been hard at work in the studio, providing creative support for a frontman whose reputation is genuinely global and whose influence continues to be felt, with musicians of all ages (from Dave Grohl to the original Gun n’ Roses’ members) citing Michael’s ground-breaking career as a source of inspiration.

Indeed, the video for the first single to be drawn from ‘Horns And Halos’, ‘Ballad Of The Lower East Side’, includes a nod to Michael’s early days in New York, a city he moved to for a decade following the mid-’80s break up of glam punk pioneers, Hanoi Rocks. The clip – directed by celebrated videographer/photographer Ville Juurikkala, who has photographed Michael for the past 10 years as well as working with Linkin Park, Good Charlotte & HIM, amongst others – features archive footage & photos of Michael in prime Big Apple mode, interlaced with current live & backstage scenes.

Says Michael: -

“‘Ballad Of The Lower East Side’ is about New York, and especially that particular area – what it was way back in the days when I lived there; it shows how times have changed and how it is today. New York has always been an important city for me since I lived there for 10 years, and two members of our band still live there. It's the City of all Cities!”

‘Ballad Of The Lower East Side’ will be made available digitally on April 19th via Spinefarm Records; a limited edition coloured vinyl 7” version will follow via What Records exclusively – www.whatrecords.co.uk

A string of MM UK shows/festivals will be announced shortly for 2013.

Now after several months, the wait is over. Michael Monroe can finally reveal that the band's upcoming studio album, "Horns And Halos", will hit stores everywhere on August 27, 2013 via Spinefarm Records. The band offers a taste of the new album in the form of a new single and video for the track "Ballad Of The Lower East Side", which can be watched now below.

"The song 'Ballad Of The Lower East Side' is about New York and especially the Lower East Side — what it was way back in the days when I lived there, how times have changed and how it is nowadays," states Monroe. "New York has always been an important city to me since I lived there for 10 years. Two members of our band still live there. It's the City of all Cities."

vooodoo six confirmed for main support to iron maiden

VOODOO SIX Confirmed as main support on Iron Maiden’s forthcoming ‘Maiden England’ European tour (May-July).

+ Second studio album, ‘Songs To Invade Countries To’, lined up for release on May 27th via
+ Spinefarm Records, preceded by single / video ‘Your Way’.

vooodoo six confirmed for main support to iron maiden

LOCKED, LOADED & READY TO GO: British modern hard rockers Voodoo Six are now set to release new studio album, 'Songs To Invade Countries To', having penned a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.

This much-anticipated release will be available from May 27th, coinciding with the first date of V6’s European tour with UK metal legends Iron Maiden. The tour will include major festival appearances, including Download Festival, Graspop, SeeRock and TopFest, plus several Sonispheres (Barcelona, Madrid, Milan & Amneville).

The new album consists of 11 studio tracks produced by Tony Newton, mixed by Tony Newton & Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Enter Shikari, Therapy?) and mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, British Lion). It follows 2010's 'Fluke?' outing, which was released through Classic Rock's
Powerage label and mixed by renowned studio engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica). At some point, ‘Fluke’ will see an enhanced re-issue via Spinefarm…

The band have gained a loyal following from their impressive portfolio of live activity, which has included several performances at Download, Sonisphere & Bloodstock, as well as touring with Adrenaline Mob, Edguy, Extreme, Michael Monroe & UFO.

Voodoo Six guitarist Chris Jones comments:-

“The album title was something that came about ages ago, but took on another dimension when we heard the news that we'd be going out with Iron Maiden on the ‘Maiden England’ tour. It's about taking our music further afield, and into new territories. We can't wait to play to overseas audiences on this tour!”

Iron Maiden founder & bassist Steve Harris adds:-

“I've been keeping an eye on Voodoo Six for a while now, and they've produced a cracking new album with real promise. It's great to support true British up ‘n’ coming talent such as theirs, and it will be a pleasure to have them out with us on tour.”

Steve Harris isn't the only advocate of the band. After touring with Adrenaline Mob last summer, V6 caught the attention of original Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, who has stated: -

“Voodoo Six are a great band with a bright future – cool guys, great players!'

'Songs To Invade Countries To' is released worldwide via Spinefarm Records on May 27.

Volbeat and King Diamond Release Free Download

Today, Volbeat and King Diamond are pleased to release the Jacob Hansen mastered version of this track, titled "Room 24", as a FREE download gift to the fans.

"Room 24" features a massive coup for Volbeat with the guest appearance from King Diamond, the legendary front man of Danish metal pioneers Mercyful Fate, and one of Poulsen's musical idols. Poulsen reveals, "I'm a huge fan of Mercyful Fate and King Diamond. Having King on the record is a huge privilege. Normally, it's not something he does.

After 15 years together, with six full length albums under their collective belt, 2013 sees the Finnish musicians delivering Album No. 7 - an eight-track release showcasing this Oulu outfit's trademark frantic, yet melodic death metal style, tempered here by a new-found 'epic mournfulness'.

That is why we wanted to give the songs the best possible chance without compromise; we feel very lucky and privileged to have worked with Jens Bogren."
