The End of Days EP for us stitches together years of hard work and refinement, offering our fans the very best of each of us. A mix of riff laden hard rock tracks and emotional, thought provoking ballads. This isn’t just music to us, it’s our lives laid out for the world to see, at around 140bpm. If nothing else we hope that the message to the listener is clear, whatever it is you’re going through and whatever burden you carry, you’re not alone. We are with you.

Every sore-throat, snapped string and broken drumstick has led to this moment. Every dark thought, sleepless night and act of poor judgement has led to our story.

You will know us, and we will know you.

We are Lonely Dakota – VonDeePJTez, and Sepala.

Lonely Dakota was originally the brain child of Paul ‘PJ’ Jackson and started life as an Indie band on the Southampton and London circuits, receiving moderate success supporting acts like Lonely The Brave, but PJ’s passion and influence had always been for rock music…

In December 2015 PJ set to realize his vision of an LD infused with cutting and melodic lead guitar with mammoth power chords, thunderous bass, technical but driving drums and gritty vocals.

In January 2016 Luke ‘VonDee’ Varndell would meet Jackson and a rabble of other musicians in a damp ‘would be studio’ in the arse end of nowhere to audition for lead vocals. Having prepared lyrics beforehand the band quickly began to meld together, and fan favourite ‘Medication’ began to take form. VonDee had never fronted a band before, having previously been a solo acoustic act, and felt naked without his own guitar around his neck. However with the support and encouragement of Jackson his confidence, ability and range grew. In a moment that would have made Marty McFly proud, they had both found ‘that new sound’ they had been looking for.

In April 2016 Lonely Dakota would release their first single, ‘ “On The Rise.” Recorded at the Ranch Production House, it received local radio success and LD went on to play a string of shows supporting acts such as SOiLWilson, and Reigning Days. Later the same year they released their second single, “Low Life,” via Revolver Records, but continual changes to the line-up saw the momentum dwindle. Due to disagreements and other commitments, the band lost its rhythm section.

Not to be deterred, and wanting to preach their songs to the masses, Jackson and VonDee set about reconstructing and breathing new life into LD.

Terry ‘Tez’ Jenvey would join the band in the Summer of 2017 providing thunderous bass guitar and giving a new momentum to the band. In November 2018 LD returned to the Ranch Production House, with producer Kurt Fagan, to record their new Southern Rock ballad ‘Dead Stories’. This would go on to receive national airplay on Planet Rock’s ‘The New Rock Show’, with Wyatt Wendels.

LD once again began to gather traction on the local scene developing a loyal and growing fan base. In February 2019 Lonely Dakota would become fully formed into the Southern Rock Powerhouse it is today with the addition of Craig ‘The Machine’ Sepala on drums. Sepala’s years of drumming experience and technical playing has helped to push Jackson, VonDee, and Tez to play harder than ever before. Leading to live shows laden with ‘behind the head’ solo’s, chest pounding bass, raspy and haunting dual vocals and earth-shattering drums.

In April 2019 LD once again returned to The Ranch and recorded their debut, five track, EP. Featuring forth coming singles, “End of Days” and “Overdrive.”

BLACKTOP MOJO Announce PledgeMusic Campaign to Fund Upcoming Album

BTM HOB DFW CB-8965

Texas based hard rock band BLACKTOP MOJO has announced PledgeMusic campaign to help fund their upcoming third full length album.

“We’ve been writing and cutting demos in preparation for the third record , and we’re really excited about the direction of the new material. We’re also thrilled to have so much support from our family of Fans and friends” – Blacktop Mojo

Promo Video

Fans can pre-order a selection of items including signed copies of the new album, exclusive t-shirts, fishing with the band, hangouts, and even listing their name in the album jacket.

“As independent artists, everything we do is fan-funded. We don’t have a record label loaning us a ton of money to make a record. With that, comes some financial pitfalls, but it also means NOBODY tells us how to make music for you guys and we think that’s pretty cool!”

A hard-driving Southern rock unit based out of Palestine, Texas, Blacktop Mojo’s fiery blend of post-grunge, classic rock, and metal falls somewhere between Soundgarden, Black Stone Cherry, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Founded in 2012 by front-man Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, the band eventually morphed into a five-piece with the additions of bass player Matt Curtis and guitarists Ryan Kiefer and Kenneth Irwin. They released their debut album, I Am, in 2014, followed by a heavy bout of touring that saw the group sharing the stage with a wide array of heavy hitters, including Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Candlebox, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Shaman’s Harvest, Pop Evil, Puddle of Mudd, and Drowning Pool.

In 2017, the band teamed up with Muscle Shoals producer Jimmy Johnson for their highly anticipated sophomore outing Burn the Ships. The album was released via the band’s label, Cuhmon Records, in March of that year to critical acclaim, and it’s first single, “Where The Wind Blows” reached #27 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, while the band was on its first U.S. tour that fall. Through that tour, they landed a slot on 2018’s Rock Fest, featuring headliners Disturbed, Incubus, and Godsmack, among many other industry leading hard rock acts.

At the beginning of 2018, the band has started work on its third full length release, as well as touring to support the second radio single from, Burn The Ships.
