Call Me King is a post-hardcore act based in Austin, TX. Since their founding in July of 2015, Call Me King has gathered over 11,000 followers across various outlets. Call Me King has been featured alongside nationwide acts such as Asking AlexandriablessthefallEmery, and more. In January of 2016, after only six months of playing together as a group, Call Me King flew to Ohio to record their debut album …and the snow will turn to ash with founding father of progressive hardcore Craig Owens (ChiodosD.R.U.G.S.Isles & Glaciers) as producer and Jordan DiSorbo of Before Their Eyes operating as sound engineer. atswtta was released October 7th, 2016 alongside Call Me King’s first tour through the Midwest to promote the album.

Call Me King didn’t take time to rest after that tour, instead doubling down on regional shows to build on their already-established fanbase. They began writing for their second LP, which is currently untitled, in January of 2017. They spent the month of August at Glass Arrow Audio in Toledo recording their second album with Jordan DiSorbo. Call Me King’s video for their single “Sycamore Lane” was released in September 2017 as an Alternative Press exclusive.

Immediately after returning from the studio, Call Me King was able to join one of their major influences, Emery, as they put on their Fan Appreciation Tour. This was a valuable experience for the band, who received incredibly positive feedback and are currently planning their next such tour.

Call Me King has recently partnered with the Inner Light Agency as management and is working toward the release of their second album, slotted for early Summer of 2018.

From Barnsley to Brazil: Hands Off Gretel To Be Featured in Upcoming Video Game!

Barnsley band Hands Off Gretel has been invited to present a live music video showcase at Música Mundo 2017 (September 6 to 10th) an international music conference in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

“It’s amazing that a group of students over 5,000 miles away have been working on our game and listening to our music. We have a fantastic international fan base and we are so proud that they chose Hands Off Gretel out of all the bands they could have chosen around the world.” Lauren Tate (Singer/songwriter Hands Off Gretel)

The bands video performance at the conference on September 9th will mark the launch of a free web browser game, developed by a group of Brazilian students, The Mad Freaks Studio at the University of Fumec in Brazil. The gaming students, who are avid fans of the band, were inspired by the music video “One Eyed Girl”, a colorful carnival video that the band produced themselves. The students were inspired by characters from the video to create the online game, which includes music from Hands Off Gretel and has a string of anti-bullying messages.

The students and the band have worked collaboratively over the last few months to tweak the game and will now work together to promote each other through a dedicated Facebook page for the game and a showcase presentation at Music Mundo. Episodes 1 and 2 will be released at Música Mundo 2017, which is promoting interaction between music and games, fostering business innovation and entrepreneurship. The game will be available to play online on September 15th with further episodes planned for October and December. The game is designed to entertain, but also warn about bullying and its dangerous consequences.

“The sound we make is raw, influenced strongly by 90s female fronted grunge bands, we get loud and shouty and soft and pretty, it’s frustration music from a girl in her room shouting out at the real world. “

Hands Off Gretel are making a name for themselves in their brief two-year history as a band. They have fast secured a promising live reputation with their visually stunning and compelling live performances, including; 2 full UK tours, Download, Isle of Wight, Rebellion and a capacity crowd at the Underground, as part of this years Camden Rocks Festival.

The South Yorkshire based band, described by some, as new wave grunge, bring a welcome dose of originality to the UK music scene. Louder than War describe them as “One of the most exciting bands in the UK’. Following release of their debut album Burn The Beauty Queen in Sept 2016, they secured airplay on Team Rock RadioKerrang radio and BBC Sheffield introducing and a video premiere with Alternative Press.

Epitomising what a DIY band can achieve Hands Off Gretel are arguably one of the most creative artists around, building on an impressive online following from around the world. Lead singer Lauren Tate produces the bands music videos, designs the website,and creates all the bands merchandise and tour posters. Original artwork, clay models, jewellery and a self produced demo album were just some of the things created by Lauren and sold via the bands website to crowd fund the album.

2017 see them touring the UK and heading to Germany on their first European tour, before heading back into the studio at the end of the year for album number 2.
