Los Angeles based Nu-Metal band Dirty Machine has released the official music video for their single, “Further From You.” Directed and edited by Ron Underwood from 9Electric, “Further From You” was produced by Ulrich Wild (Deftones, Static-X, Pantera, White Zombie, Breaking Benjamin, Limp Bizkit) and was mastered by Gentry Studer (Incubus, Deftones, 36 Crazyfist, American Head Charge, Otep).

“Even when ‘Further From You’ was in it’s early stages, we knew we had something special. It impacted everyone in the band in a different way. Any time a song does that you, you know it means something. Then when you throw producer Ulrich Wild in the mix, it’s game over.” – Dirty Machine

Built to last and refusing to follow the Indie music scene that has been dominating California, Dirty Machine has tasked themselves with bringing homegrown American Nu Metal back to the forefront of the industry. Based out of Los Angeles, the crowd this band draws has been moshing to their down-tuned rhythm since 2012. Consisting of David Leach (front man), Darren Davis (guitar, vocals), Arnold Quezada (guitar), Ben Jovi (Bass). NIGHTMARE (percussion), and DJ Ecusa (turntable); the members of Dirty Machine have brought together their eclectic musical backgrounds to form a powerhouse group that will not be fading away anytime soon.

Whether it is progressing forward with their music or thrashing around on stage, Dirty Machine is always in a state of constant motion. This is a band that does not believe in standing still. With a passionate enthusiasm for their craft which is rarely seen in today’s music, the members of Dirty Machine can make even the most standoffish crowd start head banging. Every live performance is a wildly spirited event.

Dirty Machine has done everything from headlining the Jägermeister stage at the 2016 Kansas City Rockfest to playing a sold out show at the House of Blues Sunset Strip and Viper Room. They have opened for acts such as P.O.D., Hed PE, Otep, Metalachi, Orgy and toured with Insane Clown Posse on “The Great Milenko” tour. Although they are based out of California, they are getting regular airtime on the leading Kansas City rock station 98.9fm and have been taking the state of Missouri and Michigan by storm. Dirty Machine is steadily conquering America one state at a time through their street team, rabid fan base, and the far reaching scope of internet radio.

THE COLOUR YOU Releases Official Music Video for “Set Me Free”

Alternative Rock Band THE COLOUR YOU has released the official music video for their single, “Set Me Free.” Originally premiered on Alternative Press Facebook Live, “Set Me Free” was filmed and directed by Sidney Lee Lopez.

player

“Essentially, ‘Set Me Free’ is about questioning whether or not someone could/should be a means of escape from the hell in your head. On one side you’ve got this damaged soul looking for an escape, and on the other there is this beautiful angel-like figure who’s intrigued by the danger of this damaged “bad boy” image, but not quite brave enough to be that escape.” – Julian Comeau (Vocals)

Divine Era Releases ‘Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts’

LA based groove metal artist DIVINE ERA has released his third full length album, Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts, an 11 track, intensely layered collection of face melting metal tracks.

player

 

 

“Divine Era’s music is strongly influenced by Pantera and old Machine Head. This newest album, “Scripture Codes Summon Suicidal Thoughts,” definitely has that old school heavy metal vibe. I sing and scream throughout the groovy riffs entwine with calculated drum patterns.

I love playing guitar solos. You will hear plenty on this LP. I’m not much of a shredder. I do my own thing with feel and a lot of chicken picking. My main personal influences are Dimebag Darrell, SRV and Zakk Wylde.
The main focus is to not only write groovy songs that make people move, but to compose different sounding songs; each with its own color making them all easily identifiable.

I’m very happy with how this album came out and hope you enjoy listening as well.” – Divine Era

WELL HUNG HEART RELEASE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “OBEY” FEATURING NOODLES FROM THE OFFSPRING

California-based rock and roll band Well Hung Heart has released the first song & music video from their forthcoming album, “OBEY”, a dystopian glam rock anthem for today’s times. Lead singer Greta Valenti explains, “We wanted to release ‘Obey’ first as it is the most direct message with kind of an ominous warning to it. The song itself has a very fun swagger, but with an underlining sort of biblical warning to it all. It’s also a tribute to John Carpenters’s film They Live and George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead but brought into today’s environment of social media and these screens that we get sucked into.”

The music video for “Obey” features a guest appearance by Noodles from The Offspring, whom Well Hung Heart opened for in 2017. The song is the first taste of what is to come for their upcoming LP, Songs for the End of the World, to be released later this year with an accompanying visual album, and followed by a feature-length Horror Film with US & European Tour Dates. This summer, the band will be playing Rocklahoma festival on May 27th with a few tour dates leading up, and producing their own “Inclusive Specialty Rock Festival,” Feedback Fest, on August 18th, 2018 in Santa Ana, CA, specifically designed to highlight under-represented artists in Rock music.

Well Hung Heart first formed in Orange, California as a duo in 2011 by artist and performer, Greta Valenti and blues guitar veteran, Robin Davey. Producing their own music and videos, the duo quickly gained a following online and around the world creating melodic, driving rock songs often interwoven with dabbles of social awareness. Their first single, “The Music Made Me Do it” caused internet raucous with simultaneous instant popularity calling out the child abuse allegations within the Catholic Church in the music video, while also being musically infectious. Their first mix tape, The State of America, featured art created by Greta, using real U.S. currency and sold out within an hour. Their next two albums (Young Enough To Know It All and Go Forth and Multiply) received numerous radio play and awards for sound and video. In 2015, the self-titled EP, Well Hung Heart, showcased a marvelous musical evolution of melody and heavy groove, with the song “Touch the Sky,” earning them 16 weeks of airplay (6 weeks at #1) on KROQ, Southern California’s largest rock radio station. Their reckless and raw performances have earned the band numerous awards, tours throughout the United States, United Kingdom and Europe, performances at major Festivals (SXSWWarped TourRocklahoma35 DentonSturgis Buffalo ChipMake Music Festival and more) and opening slots with acts like The OffspringLinkin ParkFitz & The TantrumsOzzy OsbourneAwolnation, and Alice Cooper. In 2016, Well Hung Heart launched their own music festival Feedback Fest to a Sold Out audience, as a way to showcase and integrate artists into the rock genre that felt weren’t getting opportunities they deserved because of gender, sexual orientation or diversity. Feedback Fest will return on August 18th, 2018 in Santa Ana, CA promising an unnamed headliner and a diverse lineup.

The group has now evolved from the initial duo into a foursome by adding Southern California punk bassist and KROQ radio personality Danielle “Chip” Lehman plus dynamic powerhouse and Tulsa native, Brad Jones. Greta Valenti & Robin Davey also own a media company Grow Vision for which they have created award-winning films, television shows (like Live from Daryl’s House Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates show on MTV Live), YouTube content for major brands and music videos for artists like Bush and Papa Roach. The band is entirely self-sufficient and operates their own label, Grow Vision Music. The upcoming album, Songs for the End of the World, will be the first album from the new foursome-version of Well Hung Heart and will be accompanied with a visual album and followed by a feature-length Horror Film.

Industrial Legends LORDS OF ACID Release Highly Anticipated LP, ‘Pretty In Kink’!

After great anticipation and a handful of eye opening sneak peaks, iconic electronic band LORDS OF ACID has released their highly anticipated first LP in 6 years, Pretty in Kink! The fan driven and committed album, out now via Metropolis Records, is a refreshing throwback to the group’s legendary dance roots while continuing their reputation for creative innovation and polished showmanship.

Break Me player

Advance Praise for Pretty in Kink

“Wrapping up on a positive note of knowing one’s own self-worth and accepting individuality as the spice of life, Praga Khan has found yet another entertaining band of misfit toys to take his vision to fruition in a modern yet true-to-their-roots body of work. Pretty In Kink can be listened to in any order and still reeks of success as an album, plus it can hold its own next to the greatest hits from the late ‘80s into the ‘90s.” Cryptic Rock

“Lords of Acid are back with a highly anticipated new album on May 18. Clever as always, the title Pretty in Kink is a subversive take on a pop culture institution, chock full of the hardcore techno that the Belgian group has been pumping out for decades.” – Matt Matasci – mxdwn

Pretty in Kink is an amazing album that mixes all your favorite elements of Lords of Acid and adds a few more into the mix. The album has newcomer vocalist Marieke Bresseleers. Pretty in Kink starts off with ‘Break Me,’ which for me is a perfect way to start the album. The music in this one is like a very dark gothic industrial sound and the vocals just add to it. ‘Sex Cam Girl’ and ‘Flow Juice’ bring back the nasty side of Lords of Acid, and that’s exactly how we like it. No filters and straight to the point sexual advancements. One of my other favorite tracks is ‘What the Fuck.’ It’s got that more rap/hip hop flow to it but still has that Lords of Acid sound. This one makes me want to bang my head and makes everyone else look and ask “What the fuck are you listening to” and I just turn it up louder and flip the bird. The album ends with ‘We are the Freaks,’ it’s got the a rap feel to it as well and slow nice flow with it. The vocals are in Spanish but still kills.” – Empire Extreme

“There’s been a void in rave music and EDM over the past decade. There aren’t as many acts as there used to be who, in addition to having rock star status and pop cache, cover more than one genre at a time and bring together entire scenes with their music. With Pretty In Kink, Lords of Acid is poised to fill that void and show younger EDM’ers just exactly “What the Fuck!” is up.” – Layla Marino – Your EDM

“A full-length hardon has been created and will be released on May 18th to LOA fans. Electronic dance music has never tasted this good. What is even more thrilling is that this album seriously offers up something for everyone’s tastes. As pioneers in the world of electronic dance music Lords Of Acid’s longevity and survival of the contorted bits of drugs, sex, and rock n roll have continued to survive. How often can you take twenty years of deviant behaviors and raise a glass to the skies and still create some of the most complex electronic music found?” – Lolana Deetwick – RockAllPhotography

“Their mind-bending attitude fits well with their music, certainly with regard to this exciting sexual creation. If you’re feeling frisky, mentally undress yourself and get busy with the latest from Lords Of Acid.” – Tyler Trew – The Music Ninja

“Sex. Drugs. Danceable beats. Lords of Acid have been making sweet love to our ears since 1988’s “I Sit On Acid,” and clubs the world over haven’t stopped cumming. While they have experimented with various sounds over the decades, at the core of every track is rhythmic sensuality and ferocious energy, just waiting to splash across the dance floor. Most songs feature multiple sound bytes and samples, and the live stage shows often feature graphic sexual imagery, and even simulated sexual acts, to the delight of many a concert-goer. It should come as no surprise, then, that the latest album rekindles the passion and lust we felt all those years ago…Overall, the album is a welcome advance into the next chapter of the band’s career. The album has deeply penetrated my psyche, and I hope it is as good for you as it was for me. That IS what she said.” – ZTP Magazine

From his first single, “I Sit On Acid”, released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release Lust to the electro-thrash of 2012’s Deep Chills, Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for thirty years. Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases.

3 YEARS HOLLOW Release Official Lyric Video for “You and I”

Quad Cities heavy rock band 3 Years Hollow has released the official lyric video for their newest single, “You and I.”

“For us, ‘You and I’ was more or less a Thank You to our fans that have supported us over the years. This band has a new attitude and our past experiences have become the writing fuel for a new album that will break all the previous molds of what 3YH was. The break we took the last few years was much needed but we’re incredibly excited to be writing together again.” – Jose Urquiza (Vocals)

Player

Click HERE to Download “You and I” on iTunes

3 Years Hollow is a 5-piece band from the Quad Cities, a group of cities located along the Mississippi River in Iowa and Illinois. Jose Urquiza [vocals], Tony Reeves [guitar], Neil Kuhlman [guitar], Dex Digga [bass], and Chris Cushman [drums]—dispense honest hard rock that’s equally hypnotic and heavy.

Over the past decade, the group has solidified itself as one of the Midwest’s most incendiary and infectious young acts. Their breakout independent single “Remember” charted at #1 on Octane, while “Chemical Ride” is closing in on 1 million YouTube views. In 2012, they emerged as regional victors during the Ernie Ball-sponsored Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival “Battle of the Bands”.

Playing the Tinley Park, IL date of UPROAR, they caught the attention of Imagen Records who proceeded to offer them a deal soon after. Now, with production by none other than Clint Lowery of Sevendust, their latest album bristles with irresistible intensity and magnetic melodies.
Becoming a local stalwart, 3 Years Hollow shared the stage with everybody from Papa Roach to Buckcherry, and they’ve siphoned their live energy into a kinetic anthems.

About the sound, Jose explains, “We want to play melodic hard rock. That’s the music that brought us together. At the same time, we all have drastically different influences from progressive rock to hair metal to pop punk. All of these other influences will begin to shine through as our albums progress hopefully.”

That cohesion comes across on the likes of “For Life”. Coupling a fret-burning solo and chorus from Lowery with Jose’s dynamic delivery, it practically explodes on impact.

“It’s about a person who is struggling and has fallen away from the world alone,” says the vocalist. “You can see the damage and the demons the person deals with on a daily basis. However, all of a sudden, there is hope instead of despair. The final message is to pull away from the demons, stand strong against them, and keep them out for the rest of your life. It was such an honor to bring that track to life with Clint.”

Then, there’s “Hungry”, which bares its teeth via a bombastic beat and arena-size hook. It taps into their on-stage intensity. “We wrote that in the jam space,” recalls Jose. “We want people to get close to the music. We give everything we can so fans forget about everything else.”
3 Years Hollow supported The Cracks with three (3) singles, all which cracked the Active Rock Top 40 chart and the Billboard Mainstream Rock Top 40 chart.

Ultimately, 3 Years Hollow constantly keeps the listeners in mind with that honesty. “Everything I write about is a completely personal experience or something I’ve witnessed or experienced myself,” he concludes. “I want to give everybody something real.”

Blacklite District follows no rules. With sounds of everything from electronic, EDM and hip hop, to hard rock and alternative, the band truly stands out from the pack of what has becomes today’s generic sounding “Active Rock”. Formed in 2012 by Kyle Pfeiffer and Roman James, ages 12 and 11 respectively, the band grew organically in their local music scene through the years to come. In 2011, BLD was discovered by Grammy Award-winning producer, Stephen Short (Paul McCartney, Queen), which resulted in a 10 day recording session at the world’s largest residential recording studio, Sonic Ranch, just outside of Mexico in Tonillo, TX. The group re-located to Los Angeles and played some of the most famous venues in the world for the remainder of 2011.

In 2013, the group released “With Me Now” as the lead from it’s debut album Worldwide Controversy. “With Me Now” immediately went to #1 on SiriusXM channels Octane and Faction, hit the Top 40 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart (#32), and sold 100,000 copies. BLD went on a very successful US tour with Saving Abel in Jan-Apr 2014, with 26 of those shows SOLD OUT. After a legal battle with their management and record label, Blacklite District went on hiatus in late 2014.

On August 23, “The Struggle” was release to radio and To Whom It May Concern went for pre-order at digital retailers. Revolver Magazine premiered the music video for “The Struggle” on August 25. The band also announced a 41 date tour called “The Struggle Is Real Tour”. Blacklite District released a Nightcore remix of “The Struggle” to YouTube on September 6, which got over 2,000,000 plays and resulted in the single breaking the Top 40 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator chart at #36.

One month later, on October 6, the group released a Nightcore remix of “We Are The Danger” which got over 400,000 plays on YouTube. A couple of weeks later, the band released “Broken Souls” to radio, as well as a Nightcore remix which resulted in 500,000 plays and hitting #30 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator. This was the second song in the month of October to break the Top 40 (along with “The Struggle.”)

“The Ghost of You and Me” was released as a music video and a Nightcore remix on December 28, 2016. The song was yet again a success for Blacklite District resulting in 400,000.

On January 20, 2017, BLD released “Living In A Nightmare” as the first single from upcoming album Instant Gratification. With a coinciding Nightcore release, “Living In A Nightmare” broke the Top 25 on the BDS Indicator chart, marking the bands highest spot in chart history. The song has been streamed over 250,000 times.

On February 24, famed radio DJ Lou Brutus posted the bands video for “Cold As Ice”, which was released the same day. The song scored a whopping 350,000 streams in its first week alone, and as of May 2017, has over 3.5 million combined views on YouTube. “Cold As Ice” serves as the second single from Instant Gratification. In the summer of 2017, “Cold As Ice” was added to Spotify’s “Rock Hard” playlist, and was put into rotation on SiriusXM’s alternative channel Faction. In October, “Cold As Ice” was added to rotation on SiriusXM Octane, and it’s Minecraft music video has over 10 million views on YouTube. There are about 4 videos about a Herobrine invasion with zombies and “nether watchers” and how the main character, a player in a blue suit, survives. There are 4 songs in total in the order of The Struggle, Cold as Ice, We are the Danger (possibly not from Blacklite District), and Just so you Know.

Blacklite District released their third album Instant Gratification on September 22, going Top 10 on Amazon’s Top Electronic Albums chart.
