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.

“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.

band with logo

Chicago based Metal Band BEDLEM, founded by ex TRIVIUM touring powerhouse PAUL WANDTKE, has released their debut LP BACK TO BEDLEM.

Bedlem is a bombastic display of groove via Joey Brassal’s catchy guitar style and Paul Wandtke’s monstrous drum kit abilities complimented by Brian Ahern’s bass lines. Their melodic hooks are stringed in with poetic lyric content via vocalist Mike Petrasek’s lyrical vision. There’s no doubt that this quartet from Chicago, IL is the next up and coming act from the Windy City.

“I had to make a decision, move to Florida and continue drumming for Trivium or stay at home and take a chance on something. I couldn’t be more thrilled about our debut album, Back to Bedlem. There’s nothing more thrilling than being in a band with my own brothers. We are literally family. This is not a work for hire situation and it feels so great!” ~ Paul Wandtke

A Voodoo Doctor “The Doctor” came across a girl who looked lost and scared, crying in the alley way behind his lab. He used his magic to turn her into a doll, but his spell was disrupted from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for those who are looking to join our dark world in the 13th hour.

Raven Black released their first Single, “Died Inside” on September 7, 2013 at The Roxy, selling out the venue that night. They continued to work in the studio and released their first EP, “Midnight Dreary” in June 2014, successfully packed the house at the famous Viper Room.

The band was previously managed by Aaron Rossi (Grammy Nominated Drummer of Ministry/Prong), AJR Enterprises and worked with Grammy-Winning Producer Logan Mader (SoulFly/Machinehead/Five Finger Death Punch).

In October 2014, they revamped their line up and began working with Grammy Nominated Producer Ulrich Wild (Rob ZombieWhite ZombieAlice In ChainsBreaking BenjaminPanteraSeetherDethklokOtep, and more) on their new album. They then spent the next two years writing and then released their single “Seven Sins” in April 2016 and their EP Seven Sins in September 2016.

A little horror version of their already theatrical presence in the metal community. “We wanted to have some blood in this one,” says Raven.

After a quick rest, Raven Black toured through the Southern parts of the U.S. on their way to SXSW. They played the Heart of Texas Rock Festival in March 2017. Winning fans from across mutiple genres at SXSW. Raven says, “I am so proud of being able to share our METAL music with other fans of country, hip hop and pop genres. I was so surprised and happy to see them buying our music. It was fun and the only thing missing was the big mosh pit, LOL, although there was a small handful of metalheads respresented this year at SXSW. “

​After returning back home to Los Angeles, the band quickly prepared for their first Headliner Tour, The Hex O’Clock Tour, which kicked off in Guadalajara, Mexico at the Roadhouse Voodoo Bar, July 7, 2017 and returned to the U.S. to begin their onth long tour throughout the U.S. from coast to coast.

​The Hex O’Clock Tour was a complete success and the band was able to visit so many new cities throughout the country, see their fans and play so many new venues. Sharing with their fans, new stage props, a few new songs and announcing their new album 13 in early Spring 2018.

​Raven Black just finished their 6-week across the U.S. tour supporting PsychostickArsonists Get All the Girls and Kissing Candice. The tour was amazing and the bands have developed life-long friends. Doesn’t always happen on tours, but it did this time.

SMALL TOWN TITANS Celebrate 24 Years of ‘Superunknown’ With Cover of SOUNDGARDEN’s “Spoonman”

York, PA heavy rock band SMALL TOWN TITANS has released the Official Music Video for their cover of SOUNDGARDEN’s“Spoonman” to celebrate the 24th anniversary of the release of Superunkownon March 8, 1994.

“Chris Cornell has been a musical hero of mine since I was in high school and has been a major influence in the style of our band. Soundgarden’s repertoire of music is vast and difficult to pull off. The reason we decided to cover this classic of theirs is not only to challenge our musicianship and ability but to also pay tribute to one of the greatest voices and lyricists of Rock ‘n Roll from one of the greatest bands of all time. Our hope is that our interpretation does the song and it’s original performers the justice and recognition it deserves.” – Phil Freeman

Click HERE to Download / Stream “Spoonman” Online

The Small Town Titans are a power trio from York, PA who love to constantly create, as well as play live. Gone is the notion that a rock band should only release 10 songs at a time every 2 years. In a world where music fans crave new content constantly, the Small Town Titans aim to deliver their brand of art all of the time, drawing inspiration from a new wave of rock bands such as Highly Suspect and Royal Blood, and rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, and Deep Purple. Thanks to their efforts at assembling their own studio in a basement, STT can create and release songs, podcasts, live online concerts, and more with no rules. This artistic change in attitude stems from touring for the better part of 2 years, and realizing how difficult it really is.

After coming home from their last 30 day run, the band had made $4,000. After repairing their vehicle, restocking their merchandise and more, the band was left with $1,000. After putting most of that back into the band’s funds as usual, each member took home $150. This startling reality made STT take a step back and evaluate themselves as a band, a brand, and a business. After firing their manager, the boys soldiered on with the help of their team at Round 2 Records. They began to truly treat Small Town Titans as a legitimate small business more than ever before. Unnecessary expenses were cut, and more creative and innovative sources of new revenue were explored, such as utilizing the direct to fan creation platform Patreon, where the band is currently making $200 every time they release a new song on YouTube.

Instead of trying to make a million fans, STT is focusing on the fans they already have. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with a set list that’s decided right before the show, and plenty of stage banter in between songs. The band simply hits the stage to deliver an energy driven show using guitars, drums, and their voices. Nothing more, nothing less. This approach to their live performances has led to them sharing the stage with acts such as Highly Suspect, Papa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

By focusing on their engagement with social media and managing themselves, Small Town Titans are growing like never before and having more success as a business and a brand. The band just wrapped up a weekend long recording session at Hybrid Studios with friend Kevin Soffera, drummer for Seether on the 5x platinum selling record Disclaimer II, and who STT also recorded their last album Reflection with. Six brand new songs were recorded live in the studio, as well as professionally filmed by Springwood Productions at the same time. These new songs and videos will be released throughout the rest of 2017 and 2018. Songs range from the hard hitting “Me, Myself, and Monster” and “Wreck” to the ballad “Dragonfly”, an emotional song written in memory of Phil’s mother, who passed away earlier this year due to cancer, performed live with just one voice and an acoustic guitar.

Small Town Titans are actively forming a team of like minded individuals in the new music business who are just as driven and passionate as they are, rather than waiting to be discovered. As the band continues to grow their fan base online this year, they will also hit the road, this time with a smarter game plan, a stronger fan base, and a passionate team behind them.

See This Through Release “On My Own” Official Music Video

Rock quartet See This Through are releasing their new music video titled, “On My Own“. The new emotional, heart-felt video comes from the outfit’s title track, off their 2016 debut EP. The song describes a dark time in vocalist, Nick Blohm‘s life, saying:

“‘On My Own’ contains the most honest lyrics that I’ve ever written. It’s a result of many life-changing events and it took a long time for me to sort my thoughts to deal with all that happened. The song is incredibly personal for me. We all shared a vision for the video, as it’s just as personal for everyone in the band as it is for me. It needed to be dark and full of emotion. It needed to be a bit claustrophobic. It needed to tell a story, just like the song. I think we accomplished that.”

See This Through will be opening up for SeetherSkilletAll That RemainsPuddle of Mudd, and Otherwise on June 11th @ The Bear’s Big Growl in South Bend, Indiana. You can purchase their “On My Own” EP on iTunes.

About See This Through:

See This Through is more than just a name to the modern rock quartet from South Bend, IN. “It’s about never stopping,” says guitarist and lead vocalist Nick Blohm, “it’s about going after something that you never thought you could accomplish.”

It’s this mentality that brought Chad Ellsworth (lead guitarist) and Nick together in 2014 in what would become See This Through. “Ever since I heard [Nick’s] solo stuff, I was captivated by each and every song I heard him play,” explains Chad, “I said to myself, ‘I wish I was up there playing music with this guy.’ And now, a couple of years later, here we are.” After a few months of working and writing material, Steve Howell stepped in on drums, followed by Tyler Curran on bass guitar, to complete the lineup.
Within a year of playing together, the group set out to record its debut EP. After months of writing, rehearsing, and pre-production, they hit the studio in early 2016 to produce “On My Own”. Combining meaningful lyrics with powerful vocals, thick guitars and driving percussion, “On My Own” embodies the notion of moving forward and never giving up. This theme echoes throughout their songs as they touch on subjects of inadequacy, self-actualization, and redemption.

The year 2016 proved to be an exciting challenge for See This Through as they turned heads in each venue they performed in. With their long-term sights set upon the national market, they’re making it a point to take on the Midwest, city by city, throughout 2017. As to their thoughts on what the future holds for them, Nick sums it up by stating, “With our work ethic, I can’t say exactly where we’re going to be… but I can tell you we’re going to like where we’re at.”

Crystal Ignite Releases Single “Everything You Break” Featuring Ben Moody

Australian rock artist Crystal Ignite has released her debut single, “Everything You Break,” featuring Ben Moody (Evanescence) off of her upcoming, as yet unnamed EP. “Everything You Break” was written by Crystal Ignite, Andrew Bojanic, and Liz Hooper and produced by Crystal Ignite and  WizardzOfOz.

This is one of the most emotional tracks I have written, it’s a tragic love song, a break up song, all about realizing that the person you loved was not who you thought they were…. Having Ben Moody feature on guitar makes this track even more special…. the breaking Evanesence album he cowrote was extremely influential on me in he was early stages of my career, and is a true honor – Crystal Ignite

Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

To say that Crystal Ignite is excited about returning to Australia to tour would be a total understatement. Crystal is bloody ecstatic! Backed by a stellar new group, the five piece outfit are embarking on an eleven date national run of shows in support of Crystal’s powerful new single “Everything You Break.”

Best known to audiences as the dynamic and empowering frontwoman of globetrotting hard rock act Bellusira (who have sadly called it a day), Crystal Ignite has kickstarted this brand new chapter of her career by pouring her creative heart and soul into an EP’s worth of sessions in Melbourne just last month.

“Everything You Break” (ft Evanescence’s Ben Moody on guitar) is an eclectic mix of tribal drum driven alt-pop that still draws upon Crystal’s love of all things rock, while telling a tragic tale of love gone wrong with the initial deception and eventual personal redemption that encompasses it.

Crystal will also be announcing a touring line-up for her return to the US later in the year.

As a singer-songwriter with Bellusira who released two albums and toured throughout the US, Australia and New Zealand with names such as HalestormSeetherHell YeahThe Misfits, and Fly Leaf, the band also landed on major festivals with KornRob ZombieFive Finger Death Punch, and many more. Crystal’s relocation to Los Angeles also saw her work closely with co-writer Will Hunt (Evanescence) and band member Koichi Fukuda(Static-X).

Having also just secured a world-wide licensing deal with Superpop.co(Sony/ATV and Extreme Music, Crystal Ignite is set to unleash her powerhouse vocals and songs once again, showing why she’s one of the most talented women in rock today.

Cross The Divide Release Official Music Video For “Sail On The Stars”

11870784_933989106639806_2210307536465062496_nHard/Progressive Rock Trio Cross The Divide have released the Official Video for “Sail On The Stars”, the sophomore single off of their upcoming full length debut album Fearless, due out 10/14/2016. The video was directed by Caleb Chamberlain and Will Hermonat.

“‘Sail on the Stars’ is a song that deals with loss. The message in this song is that when a person is left behind due to death or parting, it is important to be able to let go and find comfort in the right places. In the case of hurt, forgiveness is a vital part of that parting and grieving process. This song deals with all of that in a simple idea, a blessing: ‘sail on the stars.'” – Cross The Divide

Official Cross The Divide | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube

One of the fastest growing, and most in-demand original artists in New England is southern New Hampshire-based Cross the Divide. The three-member band combines heavy guitar riffs and melodic vocals to produce a unique blend of progressive and hard rock styles served up onstage with their engaging, high-energy performance. In an increasingly superficial era, Cross the Divide brings not only sweet guitar licks and driving bass lines, but also deep lyrical content driving home themes of hope, strength, and justice. The band has coined their own sub-genre for their sound: Storm Rock, which they define as “intense technical rock with deep lyrical themes”.

Though the band has been in existence since September 2010, Cross the Divide did not truly begin to define itself in the industry until mid-2014 when guitarist, Zac, and bassist, Chase, welcomed their hard hitting drummer Jake French into the project. Since that time, the band has played alongside many major artists including DisturbedGodsmackBreaking BenjaminAlter BridgeSevendustTriviumPop EvilSeetherSkillet10 YearsBuckcherryEscape the FateStarsetIslanderFor Today3 Years HollowScott Stapp, and many more.

Cross the Divide is currently gearing up for the release of their highly-anticipated full-length album Fearless, which will be out on October 14, 2016. The 11-track CD will feature their hit song “The Perfect Storm,” which has seen airplay on terrestrial and internet radio all over the world, as well as upcoming single “Sail on the Stars”. Fearless is the first professionally produced record for the band, and the first recordings with the current lineup.
