WORLDWIDE PANIC Release Official Music Video for “Party”

 Party Cover Art

LA Based Heavy Metal Band WORLDWIDE PANIC has released the Diego Gonzales directed official music video for their newest single, “Party.”

“In my perspective it was a challenge to us as a band as well as in respect to finding a director. There are no shortages of videographers and directors in Los Angeles County. I know a lot of great ones that are total visionaries and could have easily shot this video and it would have just been another day at the office for them and I didn’t want that. I wanted to find someone who had the same passion for the song that we had. The moment I spoke to and met with Diego and showed him the song and saw his reaction we immediately started storyboarding with each other. It was not an easy task to complete in any regard. We wanted something extremely specific that was based on true life events that occurred in my life. Finding the actors, booking a sound stage, finding a crew, getting props, and be lengthy processes to deal with. A week to the date, Worldwide Panic, myself and Diego spent four hours at a professional soundstage filming the band performance and that weekend we had casted the actors who take this dream and turn it into a nightmare. The scenes portrayed in this video most actually happened to me. It is still difficult for me to watch this and not feel empathy for the actor on screen. I could not believe that those things happened to me in real life and now I am where I am living a happy fulfilling life. I think the rawness captured in this video encapsulates many life lessons I had to learn the hard way. Even with the dark subject matter of the song and video I like that it is done in a fun way and makes something that was very painful entertaining and fun and teaches people to avoid the many pitfalls that exist in society. It is with great pleasure I present, Party!” – Lane Steele (Bass / Vocals)

“On this track we had the pleasure of having my good friend Aaron Nordstrom help produce the vocals. He had this to say, “I’ve known Lane Steele for many years since we were in school together. I’ve seen him evolve and work very hard for awhile and find his voice as a musician. I had the pleasure of working on the song “Party” and enjoyed it very much. It was a smooth workflow and resulted in a great song. Take a listen and be sure to catch them on the road with Flaw this fall.”
– Aaron Nordstrom (Gemini Syndrome)

JUST 6 HOURS Release Official Lyric Video for “One Way Doors” Off of ‘SOBER’ EP

New Jersey based alternative rock band JUST 6 HOURS has released the official lyric video for their single, “One Way Doors,” off of their sophomore EP, Sober, which is out NOW via Moto Records.

“‘One Way Doors’ is a song about drug use and not being able to become sober, like going through a door and not being able to open it back up, hence the title, ‘One Way Doors.’ The lyrics use quotes from real drug addicts – Just 6 Hours

Player

Early Praise for Sober

“Jersey Shore-based Just 6 Hours’ forthcoming sophomore EP, Sober, finds the young band maturing with an angst-filled, metal-rooted, punk-fueled sound that will please fans of both Tool and Black Sabbath. Among the standout tracks is “One Way Doors,” which features such an emotional vocal delivery by singer-rhythm guitarist, Seth Barnett, it almost seems as if he is mistakenly trapped in hell and can’t get out. A blend of metal and blues guitar by Nick Marrotta adds to the intensity and integrity of the track.” – The Aquarian.

Track List
1. Ashes
2. Patrick
3. Pity Me
4. One Way Doors
5. Dan
6. Number Man

Just 6 Hours is an alternative rock band formed in 2014 by bassist Gordon Sine. Lead vocalist/guitarist Seth Barnett joined the group in June of 2015 and the band is now based out of Asbury Park, NJ. A change in the band’s lineup just before a gig at The Saint in Asbury Park resulted in the addition of Nick Marrotta and Anthony Giordano on lead guitar and drums, respectively, in the spring of 2017. With only six hours of rehearsal time leading up to The Saint show, the reinvented band took the stage and performed a powerful set. Since that first show at The Saint, Just 6 Hours has performed at major venues across NJ including The Brighton BarThe House of IndependentsThe Wonder BarThe Stone PonyDingbatz, and Boontunes. In May 2018, Just 6 Hours was named Jersey Rock Band of the Week by WRAT 95.9 FM and in April 2018 played a live set on WMCX 88.9 FM.

Borne from musical influences that include NirvanaGreen DayYellowcardPierce the VeilBlack SabbathMetallica, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Just 6 Hours sound is a combination of powerful rhythms supporting aggressive guitar drive melodies with lyrics that are thoughtful and emotional. As an original member of the Moto Records community, Just 6 Hours released their second EP, Sober, in March 2018 to rave reviews. Their first EP, H.O.P.E., was released in early 2017. Both are available on all streaming services.

RadioBlack partner with INgrooves to Release “Thread (I Am)”

California Rock Band RadioBlack have partnered with Legend Distribution / INgrooves to launch their action packed single “Thread (I Am).” After signing with CB Entertainment Artist Management firm in 2017, this year will see a new single in March with a full-length album in May followed by extensive touring.

“‘Thread’ is about that friend you have that gets themselves in a rut and can’t break out of it… no matter how much you try to help them. It’s about that inner struggle to want to help those people but make sure you come out unscathed yourself.” – TJ Courtney (vocals / guitar)

Shortly after recording at the Foo Fighters’ private Studio 606, lead singer/guitarist TJ Courtney brought in drummer Derek Gledhill, founding member of Smile Empty Soul, and bassist Hayato Takano to form RadioBlack. The 3-piece’s sound is a melodic mixture of grunge and 90’s inspired alt-rock that incorporates modern production elements.

The 606 sessions were recorded through the famed Sound City Neve 8028analog console, previously graced by the likes of NirvanaRage Against The Machine, and Paul McCartney. Producer John “Lou” Lousteau arranged dream collaborations for Courtney with Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy), Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction), and Mick Murphy (My RuinChevy Metal). The production team was rounded out by “Sound City” documentary producer Jim Rota, and Brad Smith of Blind Melon. These recordings will be featured on Radio Black’s debut album, slated for release next spring.

The remainder of the album was recorded with producer/mixer Jason “Space” Smith (MementoDigital Daggers) with sessions that featured the new line-up at Wishbone StudiosOcean Way, and The Village Recorder. Having already shared the stage with Puddle of MuddTrapt, and Vast, and with plans to release singles throughout the rest of the year, RadioBlack shows no signs of slowing down in the lead up to their 2018 debut.

“Between Courtney’s gruff vocals and Hawkins’ steady drumming, (Run Away) has an emotional intensity akin to the Foo’s own ‘Times Like These.'” – Consequence of Sound

“RadioBlack’s TJ Courtney is living proof that taking risks pays off.” – PureVolume

90s influenced Rock band SLANT has released the Lyric Video for their cover of the Classic U2 Hit. “With Or Without You” was Produced with Sameer Bhattacharya (Flyleaf / P.O.D.).

With or Without You” is our favorite cover song to play in a crowded room to get a whole lot of strangers to come together for 3:49 – Munir Haque

There was something endearing about tracking “With or Without You” with Slant. Hearing the urgency and passion in Fahim’s vocal performance solidified the song’s relevancy after 30 years. It was a pleasure to be part of the process.” – Sameer Bhattacharya

It was great to work with a band on a cover song who truly made it their own. I love their take on it. – Brad Dujmovic (La La La Bird Time)
