JULIEN-K Release Single, “Photo Voltaire,” Off of ‘California Noir’

Long Beach, CA based Indietronic band JULIEN-K has announced that they will be joining STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, BUSH, and THE CULT on THE REVOLUTION 3 TOUR, launching July 7th in Las Vegas and winding throughout the US before wrapping up August 15th at the legendary Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles. The band is set to release the official music video for their single, “Photo Voltaire,” off of their 2015 released California Noir, and are currently running an Indiegogo campaign to fund their upcoming LP, Harmonic Disruptor.

“‘Photo Voltaire‘ is very much a song about the struggle in our lives as artists – and for once, about a victory. I thought of the concept for the song lyrics and meaning one day at 5AM, prepping my board at the beach to surf in CA_X, and the unfinished version of the song we had been playing with for months but could not ‘solve’ was solved immediately by the sun exploding over the ocean line @ nearly 6am …. The concept ‘Photo Voltaire’ – the explosion of the sun in my own words – and the chorus popped into my head. This has been an analog for the band ever since. All the touring, crowdfunding, fan support, and so much more that has happened for us since we gave in to total honesty and authenticity. Our fans connect with this and us. All the opportunities – it’s like the sun exploding out of nowhere in our lives.” – Julien-K

Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck have been musical partners for 15+ years. During their time together they have weaved in and out of mainstream music like a constantly evolving musical fashion house. In the late 90’s they were responsible for massive radio and sales hits such as “Blind” (Korn), “Blue Monday,” ” Stitches,” and “Fiction” (Orgy), and recently “Crawl Back In” and “Let Down” (Dead By Sunrise, with their pal Chester Bennington). After enjoying years of traditional music business success, they have spent the last 10 years methodically moving away from the mainstream approach that put them on the map, opting to carefully steer their fans in a new direction, towards their new independent alternative electro rock project Julien-K – which sounds more at home with the likes of modern acts such as M83, The Kills, LCD Soundsystem, The Naked And Famous, Empire Of The Sun, and even The Black Keys (see Derakh’s sleazy electro-blues guitar playing on “We’re Here With You”).

2009 saw the long-awaited release of their debut album Death to Analog, which included long-time collaborators Anthony “Fu” Valcic and Brandon Belsky, with Belsky and drummer Elias Andra rounding out the live show. After Belsky and Andra’s 2010 departure, Julien-K’s studio line-up solidified as the trio of Derakh, Shuck and Valcic, while collaborations with electronic music innovators such as Bryan Black (Motor, Black Asteroid), Sharooz, Z-Listers, Vandal, and others revved up the writing phase of 2012’s sophomore We’re Here With You. The touring cycle that followed saw the band hit the south-west US and Europe – with festivals as far and wide as Hildesheim (Germany), Utrecht (Netherlands), and Vladivostok (Russia) – and many sold-out shows in their native LA.

In July 2014, Julien-K launched their third album cycle with a 3-song prelude to an ambitious double concept album / esthetic movement that they called California Noir^^. The CA Noir spirit was given a visual representation in November 2014 with the release of the haunting video for the title track, showcasing the struggle to discover the meaning of the Californian dream.

The concept continued in 2015 and 2016 with two wildly successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaigns and subsequent (self-)releases of the two chapters California Noir: Analog Beaches and Digital Cities and California Noir: Nightlife in Neon, which established the band as musical innovators, digital pioneers, and fully independent music entrepreneurs shaking up the underground scene.

In 2017, the band released Time Capsule: A Future Retrospective, a 4 disk, 64 song mega-package aimed at the band’s core fanbase, which consisted of unreleased songs, b-sides, never heard before remixes, and live versions of some of their biggest hits.

Julien-K has become a crowdfunding giant, with all 4 of their campaigns hitting and holding the #1 Indiegogo chart position for the duration of the campaigns.

After a successful summer 2017 tour alongside PIG and Ghostfeeder, 2018 will see the band hit the stages around the world again on headline tours, as well as in support of their friends Bush, Stone Temple Pilots, and The Cult. Being the workaholics that they are, Ryan, Amir and Fu are also already working on a new album, Harmonic Disruptor (this time with the addition of new collaborators Bidi Cobra and Alex Gonzales), that will see the band go back to their roots, while including some new aural surprises at the same time. Catch them on the road this year to find out more!

QUOR Release Official Lyric Video for “RAISING THE DEAD”

Heavy Rock band QUOR has released the official lyric video for “Raising The Dead,” off of their January 25th released EP, The Way We Are. With art and animation by Svitlana Reinish, “Raising The Dead” originally premiered on Loudwire.

The concept for the track came from a walk through a shallow burial ground in Ireland, “There was an impact left from the image of the bones laying under the rock patches covering the graves. It made me wonder what those old bones might want to say to us from the grave. How would they view their own actions in life differently now? How would they advise the living to live?” – QUOR

player

“‘The Way We Are‘ was recorded at a studio that we’d never been to, with a mixing engineer and producer we’d never worked with., in a time frame we’ve never produced a record in, all putting us in about the most uncomfortable recording situation possible; right where we like it. Uncomfortable as fuck. If you listen to the ‘The Way We Are‘ from front to back and still think it isn’t a great record and shouldn’t be played by every industry person out there, then maybe we should quit and so should you, because you don’t know what great heavy songs are even if they hit you in the face.” – QUOR

Techno-Trance Legend JUNO REACTOR Releases Stunning Visual Spectacle of JUNO REACTOR – THE MUTANT THEATRE with “LET’S TURN ON”!

Legendary electronic act JUNO REACTOR has revealed the second single and a visually extraordinary music video off of the upcoming Juno Reactor – The Mutant Theatre LP, “Let’s Turn On.” Originally premiered on PopMatters, the video was directed by Dima Terem and features both dance troupes that make up the brilliant live experience that is The Mutant Theatre, Stigma Show and Agnivo. Juno Reactor – The Mutant Theatre is set to release June 22 via Metropolis Records.

“The Mutant Theatre is named for the stage show that I was originally contacted to create for the 2016 Ozora Festival. I always wanted to have a big show, a Barbarella meets Pan’s Labyrinth tableau with a sci-fi edge, set to trance and psytrance music; a huge, Las Vegas-style spectacle for the eyes, ears, and imagination. We’ve staged The Mutant Theatre throughout Europe since that inception, and it has developed with each show. We’re so thrilled that we’ll finally be bringing the show to the home of its inspiration with a performance at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, at the internationally renown DEFCON no less, on August 11th.

‘Let’s Turn On,’ inspired by the 3000 LED, wifi controlled costume designed by Stigma’s (one of the dance troupes that comprise The Mutant Theatre) Sasha, is a trancification of my love for ’70s disco, a fusion of my musical style and tastes. I brought in Shpongle vocalist Michelle Adamson — I love her very British voice and the way she is a virtuoso with the TC Helican Voiceworks—to round out the song and play to that larger than life spectacle that I had imagined.” – Ben Watkins

“Juno Reactor continue to innovate and their latest project is the stage show The Mutant Theatre, which will see an album release on 22 June via Metropolis Records entitled Juno Reactor – The Mutant Theatre. “Let’s Turn On” Is a thrilling number from the new album, and it features vocoder vocals underpinned by charging and bubbling, powerful synths. The new presses forward with forceful energy while it simultaneously mesmerizes. Juno Reactor haven’t lost a touch through the years, as “Let’s Turn It On” is an addicting number sure to pump you up.” – Sarah Zupko – PopMatters

Previously Unreleased, Secret US / North Korea Summit Meeting Revealed?

New video footage obtained through secured, Australian sources has revealed a potential meeting between the US and North Korean governments, proving that the on-again, off-again negotiations for a peace summit between President Donald Trump and Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un are more ongoing than previously acknowledged. The video, shot at an undisclosed location, appears to document the two leaders meeting in a typically judicious fashion to determine the future relationship of the mutually antagonistic powers.

The encounter, clearly witnessed by an international audience of diplomatic and political power players that seemed to include, Russian President Vladimir Putin, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, My Secret Circus, and what looks to be a hookah smoking Zombie Bin Laden, reveals the previously underestimated negotiation skills of the oppositional leaders. Throughout the meeting, witnesses are confirmed to be appropriately contributing to the globally critical arbitration between the staid and decorous commanders, and the audience ultimately supports the appeasement goals achieved in the secret summit meeting.

Exclusive Video of Diplomatic Encounter Revealed

What people are saying about the Summit meeting….

 

We…have …the Korean summit commemorative coins Trump’s people had made up. Maybe they can become the official currency of the apocalypse? – Jimmy Kimmel

“…President Trump announced that he is calling off his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. After he broke it off, Trump told him that he could have custody of Don Jr.” – Jimmy Fallon

“In his letter, Trump’s like, ‘I can wipe your country out with a level of nuclear force you can’t even comprehend… but I’m here for you if you need to talk.'” – James Corden

“I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire,” Kim Jong Un

“We really wanted to do something that’s happening now. ‘The War Game’ track is tough, strong and makes a statement about a real life war that’s happening, which we don’t see as we go about our every day lives. Where on the other hand the video has the quirky side. (No world leaders were hurt in the making of the video) Haha! It’s a piss take for those with a sense of humour but the song is very serious. ” – My Secret Circus

Guitar Legend ADRIAN GALYSH Releases “So Close… So Far” Off of Upcoming ‘Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition’

Rock Guitar virtuoso ADRIAN GALYSH has revealed the first single, “So Close… So Far,” off of his upcoming Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition. Due out July 10, 2018, Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition will include completely re-recorded tracks, the remastered original record, and bonus live tracks.

“Venusian Sunrise was recorded in my parent’s basement on a single Alesis 8-Track ADAT recorder. While the performances are commendable for their time, given limited resources at the age of 22—it lacks what 20 years of experience and advancement in recording technology can now easily provide—richer guitar tones, advanced recording techniques, the palatial keyboard and realistic orchestral sounds of today, and maybe most importantly…real drums!” – Adrian Galysh

The new EP titled Fragile Machine to be released on July 6th, 2018, explores the questions of what comes next in human evolution. What does it mean to be a human, if consciousness can be stored in a machine?
The artwork depicts an enormous server cube floating in space, after the technological singularity, which contains mankind’s digitized minds living forever in an infinite dream created from code. The material christened ‘Scorecore’ by the band, ranges in dynamics and will resonate with fans familiar with heavy weights such as Soilwork, Amaranthe, and In Flames.

Embracing the mentality of a collective art project, the core members–ex-Divinity guitarist Alan Sacha Laskow (ENDITOL, the Order of the Gray, Walk As Chaos), bassist Brent Stutsky (ex-Breach of Trust, ex-Death Valley Dolls), along with vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (ex-Out of Your Mouth, ex-Autobody, ex-the R.A.C.E.) pulled together an insanely talented cast of collaborators including:

Guest Vocals by Andrew Ivashchenko (Shokran), Renny Carroll (Flux Conduct), Jonathan Thorpenberg (The Unguided), David Chunn (Vallite) and Mark Haggblad (Unveil the Strength)
Guest Guitar Solos by Andy James, Mattias IA Eklundh, Daniele Gottardo and Paul Wardingham.

Additional Guitar Production by Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, Everclear)

The self titled first EP was released by the band in 2015 to critical acclaim, leading to live performances with: Godsmack, Apocalyptica, Trivium, Obey the Brave, Into Eternity, and Kobra and the Lotus, as well as Premieres with Revolver and Metal Underground, and collaborations with production heavyweights like Joey Sturgis and Will Putney. The band was awarded a music video grant for “Almost Human” from Telus Storyhive and primary composer Sacha was the featured artist for Toontrack Metal Month: https://www.toontrack.com/news/customer-spotlight-alan-sasha-laskow/

Generation X is known as being the generation of slackers, cynical and disaffected, but they’re also the MTV Generation, and they demand excellence in their music. As the traditional industry has deconstructed, fame increasingly narrowed to a small minority of bands, this generation of fans have continued to support and eagerly anticipate the raw, unfiltered experience of their rock Gods. Now, as a new rock music culture emerges, one defined by fans and artists rather than labels and MTV, LOUDWIRE’s GEN-X SUMMER WITH BUCKCHERRY, P.O.D., LIT and ALIEN ANT FARM is set to remind us that rock never died.

“You’re gonna get your money’s worth on this one, the Gen X Summer tour is gonna be one to remember for sure. I love these bands. We all came out around the same time exploding onto the scene with great summertime hits and an awesome live show get your tickets now at genxsummer.com and let’s get wild and loose!” – Josh Todd (Buckcherry)

Anaheim based Buckcherry burst onto the scene in 1999 with their now classic, self-titled debut album quickly skyrocketing them into the ranks of top modern rock bands. Hit singles “Lit Up”, “For the Movies”, “Dead Again”, and “Check Your Head” brought the celebration back to the party scene, recalling the gritty glam impact of Mötley Crüe but with a Gen X demanded, modern self awareness . Later albums continued to develop their reputation for volatile, mercurial themes and infectious hooks; such singles as “Crazy Bitch,” “Everything,” “Too Drunk,” and “All Night Long” became screaming choruses for fans across the world. With their irreverent and bawdy lyrics, delivered with frontman Josh Todd’s whisky weathered vocals, paired with filthy guitar riffs and high energy, throbbing bass lines, Buckcherry has sustained a hard earned reputation for being the very definition of Rock Stars through 7 hot selling full length albums and an EP, as well as maintaining a not-to-be-missed live presence with regular touring schedules alongside such fellow legends as Mötley Crüe and Papa Roach. Buckcherry’s current line up includes front-man Todd along with Stevie D. (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), Kelly LeMieux on bass, Kevin Roentgen (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Sean Winchester(Drums).”

“This is the good vibes, Rock & Roll tour of the summer. A bunch of friends hitting the road together and playing music we love for more friends across the states.” – Sonny (P.O.D.)

P.O.D. (Payable on Death) emerged from the San Diego metal scene in 1992, and their massive fan following quickly found them signed and releasing their top selling album, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown. The singles “Southtown,” “Rock the Party (Off the Hook),” and “School of Hard Knocks” became instant radio and MTV hits, which was followed by the RIAA-certified triple platinum album, Satellite. The lead single off of Satellite, Grammy nominated “Alive,” is recognized as a modern rock classic both for the raw talent and uplifting message.

Divine Era Releases “Defense and Choice” Off of ‘Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts’

LA based groove metal artist DIVINE ERA has released the fourth track, “Defense and Choice,” off of his third full-length album, Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts. “Defense and Choice” introduces listeners to front-man and mastermind Daisuke Wachi’s unique style of catchy groove metal with brutal screams and a long, tasteful guitar solo.

 Defense and Choice

“Thematically, “Defense” battles loneliness. Struggling within the congestion of a large city, surrounded by millions of unknown people is a form of solitary confinement. Every choice in this current position only faces another dead end. All the compiling chaos, frustrating living conditions and anger felt toward other people only creates emptiness. I will not blame myself for these conditions any longer. I accept them.” – Divine Era

JOE SETTINERI Releases Official Music Video for Poignant Pop Gem, “Hello Goodbye”

American Singer/Song-writer JOE SETTINERI has released the official music video for his impassioned pop single “Hello Goodbye.” Originally premiered on Paste Magazine, “Hello Goodbye” was written in collaboration with platinum Nashville-based producer Mike Krompass (Smash Mouth, Nellie Furtado).

“Love lost, regret, and the power of saying, “goodbye.” Moving on, though is rarely that simple. Our love lives are tangles of good and bad – pushing and pulling – never wanting to let go, yet, needing to break free. Searching for that allusive feeling of ‘true’ happiness. Did we give up too soon? Will we ever know? Why can’t we forget? Does clarity ever present itself? This song emotively asks these questions and explores the purposeful intention to move on and the confusing, often conflicting emotions that come with it.
I said goodbye, but why can’t I forget?”
Searching for clarity — finding a new path – is never easy.” – Joe Settineri

“Clarity is never an easy path when it comes to this emotion called love, however, what Joe Settineri brings is his ardent musical talents as he carries his lyrics of rich passion simply and understandably. Joe’s vocals and the embracing notes from his piano show his arrival time is welcomed in the world of pop music while the video imagery is the perfect compliment to the heart of “Hello Goodbye.” Simply put, Joe Settineri’s music delivers the power to believe in love again.” – Paste Magazine

“… American singer-songwriter Joe Settineri has a habit of writing love songs, but just listen to his music and you’ll understand why … and understand the power of Joe Settineri.”

Originally from the mid-west, Los Angeles based singer songwriter Joe Settineri was a late bloomer.

His second full studio album, BEYOND YOUR CONTROL, was released 2014 and followed up by his most recent EP, BE THE ONE in 2017.

Joe’s newest singles, “HELLO GOODBYE,” “BATMAN CRIES,” and “OXYGEN,” all collaborations with multi-platinum Nashville-based producer Mike Krompass (Smash Mouth, Nellie Furtado), are slated for release in summer 2018.

Joe lives in Los Angeles with his husband and two children.
