THRILLSVILLE Releases Dark Electronic Single, “Second Sleep”

Thrillsville Second Sleep Cover 01

LA based Dark Synth artist THRILLSVILLE has released the debut track off of his upcoming, yet to be named album, “Second Sleep.”

“Reworking and reinterpreting a song wasn’t a stretch for me. It’s kind of like taking a theme and varying it when I’m composing for film, TV or video games. It’s fun to take the same source material and put it in a completely different musical world. I’ve always loved Stolen Babies’ version of ‘Second Sleep‘ and getting Dominique from SB to add background vocals to my version made it really special for me. It wouldn’t have been right without her. I feel like the dreamy and moody quality of the original rock version translated even better with this dark dance version.” – THRILLSVILLE

“Hot off the presses, Thrillsville has a new single called ‘Second Sleep,’ and it may be my new favorite song. Almost impossible to pigeonhole, this track is equal parts industrial tinged Stabbing Westward and Sisters of Mercy-esque Goth rock. That’s a poor attempt to categorize what Thrillsville has pulled out with this song, but wherever it’s meeting in the middle is a sonically perfect place and I want more of it. I can only hope that this is a teaser of things to come!” – Echosynthetic

Thrillsville is the industrial music/ dark wave solo project of Rani Sharone. Known for his dark cabaret band Stolen Babies, Sharone has collaborated and performed with Puscifer, Marilyn Manson, and TV/film composer Tyler Bates. A fellow in the Sundance Film Composers Lab Sharone also produced music for highly acclaimed Films/TV Shows including, Samurai Jack, Ray Donovan, American Ultra, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, and more.

Second Sleep,” the first single off Thrillsville’s upcoming album, is following his horror themed debut ep, Haunt Music, which spawned the Claymation videos for “In the Hall of the Chainsaw King,” and “Lycanthrope” as well as the 3-D animated video for “Sirens.”

“Conjuring up tantalizing and warped soundscapes…Thrillsville’s music sounds like it’s been ripped directly from a melted B-movie VHS tape. It’s ghoulish, grizzly, and just plain great” – Phoenix New Times

“A treasure of an EP … ‘Haunt Music’ is like watching a horror movie with your eyes closed. Images of Freddy Krueger, Jason, Michael Myers fill your mind as the rough guitar tones, the creepy synths, and sinister beats wash over you.” – Victim of Sound

“…manic carnival music” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Punctuated with a superb eighties influenced instrumental score from Rani Sharone, […] has an irresistible charm that sweeps over you” – Biff Bam Pop!

GEARS Release Official Music Video for “Tango Yankee”

Tango Yankee Skull

Miami, FL hard rock band GEARS has released the official music video for their single, “Tango Yankee” featuring Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust. Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Tango Yankee” was produced by Corey Lowery.

PLayer

“With ‘Tango Yankee,’ we just really wanted to write something dedicated to several members of our families that have served in the Military, Law Enforcement, and First Response. We really wanted this to be special, so getting one of our favorite vocalists from one of our favorite bands was very exciting and made this track just that, special. Lajon came in and absolutely crushed the track vocally. I really love the way it turned out. Trip and LJ complimented each other so well. Put that together with Clint’s epic solo and of course, Corey at the helm, this really turned into something spectacular. I believe that the thought behind the song is something that most Americans can relate to as many of us have or have had loved ones serve. Maybe even a little something that can get us past all of our political disagreements, unify, recognize the sacrifice and just say a simple ‘Thank You’ to all those who fight for our freedom, protect us and keep us safe.” – Jimmy Wooten – GEARS

Gears Promo Final Edits 55 1 of 1

Miami based hard/heavy rock act GEARS isn’t your average start-up garage band. Despite being confronted with a near disastrous setback at the cusp of their debut, headlining tour, jarring line-up changes, and financial challenges, the band has persevered and rebuilt.

Founded in February 2014, Trip 6 (Urban Rebel), Eli Parker (Endo), Tommy Herres (SCARLET CARSON) and Jimmy Wooten (SKINMASK) were all looking for new projects as their old ones had run their course.

We all wanted to do something more modern, but still rang true to our influences. Something that we could aggressively market and tour on. So, we all met up in Miami after months of talking about doing something together and what came out was the first EP, Set in Motion.

They released Set in Motion in May 2014, immediately launching into their first headline run with support from I-Exist. Just three days into the tour, their equipment trailer disconnected, resulting in a massive, horrific accident; not only did they lose their gear, but the tour van was totaled and the band members sustained serious injury. In spite of this tremendous blow, the group endured and continued the tour without missing a beat.

Later it developed that two of the founding members were unable to continue, leaving the band reeling and having to replace them with skilled, compatible substitutes:

“I was talking with a mutual friend, Joe Taback (12 Gauge Embrace) about needing a guitar player for GEARS because we let go of Eli and he suggested Bobby Thomas. I called him and showed him the songs and he was ready to go. As far as bass, I knew Chris from when Needlemouth was a thing out in Cali and I always liked his playing and he was super laid back & cool. I knew both of these dudes were definite upgrades at their instruments and were a better fit personality wise than what we had to deal with previously.”

In June 2015, Wooten and Six teamed with Corey Lowery (Saint Asonia, Stuck Mojo, Stereomud, Dark New Day) and Troy Mclawhorn (Evanescence, Seether, Dark New Day) on their new EP Pride Comes Before the Fall, and announced the addition of new members Bobby Thomas and Chris Dorame. They hit the road for their Riser Tour, once again with I-Exist, in July, wrapping up the run in September, but kept the momentum going with the digital release and lyric video for their debut single off of Pride Comes Before the Fall, “Face Down”. The band rounded out the year with the release of their much anticipated sophomore EP on November 10th, with both headlining tours and a support slot with Trapt slated for 2017.

After a very successful tour in 2017 with Seasons After and Bridge to Grace, GEARS has released a new single and video for “KING.” Once again, joined by Corey Lowery in the studio, GEARS continues to evolve. Boasting an even heavier sound with groove and aggression, they set out for Headlining Dates as well as Support Slots with Nonpoint, Upon a Burning Body and will round out their 2018 Summer/Fall Tour Dates with the last of 3 legs with All That Remains concluding at the end of September.

After touring much of 2018 with All That Remains, GEARS has shifted focus to releasing more music. Their first 2019 offering will be “TANGO YANKEE’ which features LAJON WITHERSPOON of SEVENDUST.

We’re still moving forward and, despite everything that has been an obstacle in the short time we’ve been a band, everything still keeps growing and getting better.

Joyous Wolf is a Rock band from Southern California formed in 2014 by vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio, and drummer Robert Sodaro. Reese and Sodaro met on their first day of 6th grade during student orientation. They went to different high schools where Sodaro would go on to befriend Braccio. During that time Reese, by chance, met Allard in the acoustic room at Guitar Center where they would jam CCR’s “Born on the Bayou”. There was an immediate dynamic between the two that ultimately led to an exchange of information. Months later Reese reached out to both Sodaro and Allard with the interest of starting a new project with them. Braccio would soon follow suit.

In the waning months of 2014 early jam sessions would yield the foundation of what Joyous Wolf has become. Fusing together influences ranging from Heavy Metal to Delta Blues, Joyous Wolf creates an expressive, high-energy fingerprint that separates themselves from their contemporaries in the realm of Modern Rock.

BORN CROOKED Release New Single, “Sugar”

Sugar

Nashville, TN based Alternative Rock Band BORN CROOKED has released their new single, “Sugar,” off of their upcoming EP, Come On With It.

Player

“Raw, true emotions always make a song that people can relate to. ‘Sugar’ came from Hunter finding someone who showed him what love really is and how he kept craving it. ‘Sugar’ was written while we were out on the road touring and supporting incredible artists like Kansas, Daughtry, The Record Puddle of Mud, Saving Able, to name a few. Company. Brian Craddock and Josh Paul of CO:OP Song Production helped us to bring this song to life. It is easily one of our favorite songs we have written. It just grabs you right out of the gate! ‘Sugar’ is the first single off our new EP ‘Come On With It’ recorded at The Cat Room Recording Studio and Rivergate Studios in our home town of Nashville, TN.” – BORN CROOKED

Sometimes it takes just two to rock the world.
Need proof? Listen to Born Crooked — and crank it up.

You’ve just received a potent, sonic 1-2 punch from brother-sister band, Born Crooked. The Duo pushes the boundaries of an Alternative rock sound, while keeping it personal and soulful in their writing and live show.

“Hunter’s vocals are confident, electrifying and soulful, just like his guitar playing. He cranks out fuzzy, bluesy riffs with the best of them. ARE is a thunderous beauty that lays down the boom whenever she sits at a kit.” As described by The Odyssey Magazine, captures a hint of the intensity and energy these siblings pour out into their music.

Much of this intensity stems from their love for their brother Christian, who passed away in 2013 after a lifelong battle with scoliosis, epilepsy and other painful physical disabilities. “When we’re in the green room or on the side of the stage, getting ready to walk on, we always think of him,” Hunter says. “What we do is as much for him as it is for us.”

Hunter and ARE witnessed Christian recovering from spinal surgery… “He couldn’t have any pain medication, due to allergies, and he was in immense discomfort to say the least. Christians favorite band was Led Zeppelin. Our mother started playing a DVD of Led Zeppelin Live for him. ARE and I watched as his tears dried and he was comforted by the music… it took away his pain. This moment lit a fire in us and showed us the impact music can have.”

Born Crooked’s sound is infused with a passion that’s impossible to ignore. The brother-sister Duo is not afraid to push boundaries, break the rules and incorporate new elements into their music. That passion can be heard in their latest project with Brian Craddock and Josh Paul of CO:OP Song Production. Whether it be the appetite of desire on “Sugar”, stadium chants on “May the Best Man Win”, or the torture of love on “Going Crazy” the music of Born Crooked cannot be denied.

Add to this their sibling synchronicity, their ability to feed on and amplify each other’s intensity. They’ve felt this connection from the moment they played their first local gigs through appearances abroad on several US and European tours, Born Crooked is about their bond with each other and, always, with Christian.

Born Crooked always take the stage as a two piece, a family. The duo also invite out friends to sit in on Bass and Keys during their set, allowing Hunter & ARE to flex other musical muscles to make for an impactful night of music.

They continue to honor him through charity performances at rehabilitation centers, hospitals and, Hunter notes, “anyplace where people can’t get out and hear music. We take it to them because we saw the healing effect that music had on Christian. We want to connect with everyone we can.”
And that includes their ever-widening fan base. “It’s very important for us to give audiences something positive that they’ll remember forever, something that they can look back and say, ‘That was a great night.’”

Countless great nights await all who experience Born Crooked. Their day begins now.

Year of the Locust is a motley collection of personalities from the American Northeast. Hailing from NYC, Washington Dc, and West “By God” Virginia, the band’s sound has come into it’s own under the watchful eye of producer/guitarist Brain Bonds.

“I remember going to see them at The Masquerade in Atlanta. In the moments before YOTL hit the stage I (and everyone else) heard some sort of guttural gang chant erupt from the backstage area. It really grabbed everyone’s attention. The tenacity they brought to their show and the way they commanded the stage was reminiscent of the arena bands I enjoyed as a kid. That type of power is a unique thing, and I knew I wanted to know more about them.” -Brian Bonds

GRAYSON ERHARD Releases Official Music Video for “Introvert” Off of ‘Earthship’ EP

Grayson Erhard promo square

Del Norte, CO based Singer / Songwriter GRAYSON ERHARD a stunning music video for “Introvert,” off of his November 2nd released EP, Earthship. Originally premiered on mxdwn, “Introvert” was directed and filmed by Jason Lee Denton.

“‘Introvert’ is a reflection of the internal struggles of an introvert, outlining battles with constant bombardment of social situations and wanting to get back to solitude, but ultimately becoming comfortable in one’s own skin. Personally, it’s a musical observation of what I see living with and loving an introvert.”- Grayson Erhard

Untitled

“Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Grayson Erhard recently released a five song EP titled EARTHSHIP. The album is an eclectic offering with songs that touch on everything from folk to hard rock, all through the lens of his masterful guitar playing. Today, we’re excited to premiere a video for the last song on that EP, a richly-arranged acoustic-rock number called ‘Introvert.’” – Matt Matasci – mxdwn

Colorado-based musician Grayson Erhard’s “Introvert” video is a visual romance to the introverts, the lovers of them, and the parts of ourselves that need solace.

The video, which dropped today following the release of Erhard sophomore album and EP EARTHSHIP, reflects a more mysterious, somber aesthetic compared to his recent “Tell Me No” video.

“‘Introvert’ reflects the times when I feel best alone,” Erhard said. “It’s about the welcome isolation that comes when everything else is overwhelming. And, yet, how we’re all connected by our desire to pull away from society and into ourselves, at times.”

Like much of the EP, “Introvert” marks a distinct shift toward a full-band, lyrically-focused style and away from Erhard’s previously undressed, stand-alone acoustic sound.

In it, Erhard has weaved together the percussive style of his early love of Metal and the technically complex percussive guitar style that colored his early career with a more dreamy, indie rock sound. He purposefully plays with and disrupts the common chord progressions of pop music, while complimenting distinct harmonics with EARTHSHIP co-writer Bannigrin’s drum lines.

The video was directed by Jason Lee Denton, produced by Schuyler Howie, and features Aliegh Sheilds. It was shot on location at a beautiful home outside of Nashville, TN.

GRAYSON ERHARD Releases ‘Earthship’ EP

Grayson Erhard - Earthship cover art

Del Norte, CO based Singer / Songwriter GRAYSON ERHARD has released his highly anticipated sophomore EP, Earthship, with the stunning “Tell Me No” official music video premiered on New Noise Magazine.

Video

“‘Tell Me No’ is a high energy, upbeat song highlighting the apprehensive excitement of new found chemistry between two people. It’s a side of me that I’m very nervous yet excited to share. My music usually sounds very dark and serious, but lately, I’ve been wanting to depart from that and try new things. Happiness is an emotion I’ve had difficulty expressing within my music in the past and with ‘Tell Me No’ I wanted to dive head first into it.” – GRAYSON ERHARD

Grayson Erhard promo - 16-9

“The more of his music you listen to, the more entwined in his sound you become – the more reliable it all appears, the more addictive, the more essential. I Will is a great introduction but fortunately there’s more to it than just this one song (last year’s Karma is another beauty). Grayson Erhard is an artist well worth exploring.”- Rebecca Cullen, Stereo Stickman

Hailing from Del Norte, Colo., Grayson Erhard’s style leans heavily on the technically complex tap-slap style of percussive guitar often paired with moving, airy vocals. Erhard often feels the pull between performing as a musicians’ musician and the hook writing world of pop, creating a sound that weaves between complement and contrast. This unique tension, combined with Erhard’s experience sharing the stage with Stevie Wonder, has led to Erhard’s viral success and a sound that both complements and contrasts his various styles.

Songs like “Manifest” and “Tapestry” showcase Erhard’s ability to stand on his own, organically, and represent beacons of the kind of musician Erhard strives to be. In pursuit of sonic expansion from his solo recordings, Erhard’s newest collection of music, EARTHSHIP, came to life inside of a Taos, NM earthship with co-writer/drummer, Bannigrin. The compositions developed into full-band arrangements spanning from folk rock to hard rock while still featuring his unique style of guitar playing. EARTHSHIP consists of five full-band tracks; and in honor of the fans that have been with him from the start, a stripped-down acoustic version of each song will accompany the release.

While he daylights as a computer programmer, Erhard’s music showcases his authentic, organic style, honed since his childhood in the southern Colorado town of Del Norte—a rural community of 1,800 people on the western edge of the San Luis Valley. More commonly known as “The Valley,” it’s a section of Colorado hot with alien observatories and cosmic undertones. Here, in isolation, Erhard ground out a sound that is entirely his own, but this small town was no place to pursue a music career or develop his budding interest in programming, driving him to the Front Range of Colorado.
