As a result, the record sees Atreyu once again evolve. We have a choice to change the lives of others for the better. We have to really fucking go for it. It ends on such a huge note and offers a breath of fresh air.
This band means everything to me. That attitude might seem misguided for a band who have yet to release their debut album. I can barely stand up, barely get notes out. After coming home from tour, Katz was so fed up with what he had to go through to get on stage every night, he was in two minds whether to carry on with music.
It was that song, which reached the top of the US charts, that saved Badflower. Despite its success, the group was initially sceptical about it being more than an album track. They worried listeners would think they were glorifying suicide, cynically using a very real and serious problem for their own gain.
Along with the constantly changing music — be it speeding up, stuttering almost to the brink of collapse, or weaving even more claustrophobic layers together — it adds up to something completely manic. Its lyrics speak about veganism Katz has been vegan for four years in uncompromising terms.
But his sentiment is not what you might immediately assume. The latter merges old and new, layering lyrics about Instagram filters and the internet over a big blues-rock jam.
I think we came up with something very special. We wanted to make something for this generation. Watch us. We do what we want. Rock and roll used to be about that spirit and that got lost somewhere. The story of GWAR is carved across the history of this barren and hopeless planet, but GWAR themselves are not of this world… their story begins in the deepest reaches of outer space.
Long ago, the beings who would become the rock band GWAR were part of an elite fighting force, the Scumdogs of the Universe.
For eons, they served as thralls to a supreme being known only as the Master. But one by one, each future member of the band earned a glaring reputation for being an intergalactic fuck-up. Once here, GWAR shaped the face of the globe, destroying and rebuilding the natural world, and giving rise to all of human history. Aliens to some, gods and demons to others, our erstwhile Scumdogs fucked apes to create the human race, and this fateful unplanned pregnancy would prove to be truly disastrous!
It was August of when he penned the song along with Marty Frederickson and Scott Stevens, and by that point, during one of the most tumultuous years in recent American history, the whole world appeared to be on fire. It was a rough story about what was really going on here in this country—and particularly for me, as a Black man. It is also, though, underscored by a vision of hope and endurance: through it all, we persevere.
His parents both battled drug addiction, and at a young age Jones was taken in by his aunt and uncle. Money was tight, and Jones struggled to understand both his place in the world and how to overcome his tumultuous youth. Yet, these very elements became the fuel to drive his early career. To stand for something and prove not everyone has to be a stereotype or statistic.
Jones was 13 when he first picked up the guitar that belonged to his friend—one that he began visiting more frequently just so he could spend more time with the instrument. Recognizing his raw talent, his aunt and a neighbor eventually gifted him guitars, and all the while he taught himself to play, picking and strumming until the strings felt like a second skin.
Writing and playing became a channel to express everything that I had been feeling, and then it just became my obsession. That self-sufficient tenacity continued to buoy Jones when, at the age of 19, he began releasing music independently.
His talent and diligence earned him opportunities with iconic artists such as BB King, Guns N Roses, Janelle Monae, and many more; he forged a path to continuously widen his audience, and broke barriers as a Black artist in the Rock industry.
We knew that we were doing something to open the door for other artists like us, not just in Seattle but across the world. Fast forward to today, and Seattle has become a Black rock city — prominent Black artists are leading the scene.
His life is sprinkled throughout the full album, with lyrics tackling controversial subjects, and stories that listeners can relate to.
He also played a heavy role in production on Child of the State, collaborating with producers to craft his sound and vision. Loaded with sing-alongs and an unsuspecting dose of humor to make otherwise grim topics accessible for fans of every genre, the songs remain deeply rooted in the tradition of story-telling that seems to be slipping away from the human condition.
Conjuring spirits through music and video as do-it-yourself artists from their remote place of worship, the burgeoning arts community of Vancouver Island, the husband and wife duo of Courtney LaPlante and Mike Stringer inspired a cult following from their first emergence in There is nothing pandering or remotely insincere about this band.
As a child, she started singing early and eventually made her way to Los Angeles. For more information, visit dorothytheband. Why should anything be Thank You - White Fang - Chunks (Vinyl limits? When we started scaring ourselves, it was the best thing possible. We got more vulnerable overall. Since the release of their self-titled debut, Dead Sara have quietly carved a foothold at the forefront of the 21st century rock vanguard through a one-two punch of raucous riffing and sky-high vocals.
We were missing that one thing. We had to change in order to find it. Rather than hit the studio with loose ideas to quickly cobble together an album, they dedicated nearly a year to writing and perfecting the new music. Musically, they further incorporated synthesizers and electronic percussive elements, confidently expanding the sonic palette.
We tried more synths and programming—which Sean really drove. I stopped everything. I decided the only way this was going to happen was if I dedicated my all to it. I was obsessed. I just wanted to get better. It opened the floodgates. With all of that experimentation, we went into the studio.
Do I belong to anybody? Donald Trump had just gotten in. It was as if everything shifted. There was nothing I could hold onto, grab, or be a part of. Life went dark. We captured something really raw in the moment. I was living this life where I felt like if I said something I was going to die, but by not saying anything, I was already dying. Again, I was scaring myself with this song. In the end, Dead Sara unleash a body of work befitting their ambition, drive, and decade-plus grind.
I think we can reach a whole new level with these songs. Meticulousness ensures singularity. Bad Omens carefully direct each nuance of their music, approaching the process with an auteur mindset. Produced by Noah and Jolly, the ten-track trip unfurls like the sonic equivalent of a gripping existential drama. What separates us is the attention to detail in every song. Bad Omens diligently worked to hone this approach since their self-titled debut.
In addition to expanding the sonic structure under the influence of the Hillsong UNITED and other gospel production, Noah endeavored to brighten up the thematic palette as well. This is predominantly hopeful. We should be a safe place for people. With Jolly a world away in Sweden, they finished the record remotely, maximizing the time in between tours to cap off a panoramic vision.
I wanted the lyrics to give you a sense of hope. By imparting a piece of themselves on every aspect of the composition and production, Bad Omens deliver a statement that stands out. It makes us human, gives us soul, and separates us.
We tried to make this album like a movie where it captivates you immediately, takes you on a journey, and gives you a positive payoff. When one door closes, another one opens. Weathering and persevering through potentially life-changing events, the gold-selling, chart-topping Los Angeles-based and Australian-bred hard rock outfit knew one thing.
We love this band and our fans, and we have put so much into it, and we are not done and want to take it further. With stints in several bands under his belt, Texas-born singer and guitarist Bryan Scott reached out to Emma via Facebook within days of the announcement. He sent her a video of himself performing, and she swiftly replied.
It was a natural progression. I had always loved their music and as soon as I saw the post, I went home and immediately sent Emma a message. We clicked right off the bat. They live and breathe it every day. Following a first dinner together at a Los Angeles burger spot, they hit the rehearsal studio together and began jamming. After nailing numerous favorites from the Sick Puppies catalog, they started writing new material over the next several months.
The song is meant to empower. For lyrical inspiration, the musicians actually turned to the diehard collective Sick Puppies World Crew. We grabbed a few descriptive words and came across this theme. That kind of honesty has solidified a bond between the Sick Puppies and their fans since day one.
We were going to forge ahead no matter what. Fusing hard rock licks with deep southern blues and gospel swing, the three cousins namely Landon Milbourn [vocals], Brandon Qualkenbush [rhythm guitar, backing vocals] and Tyler Baker [lead guitar] are fuelled by their desire to craft timeless, catchy and anthemic rock songs.
Brass Against is collective of artists, led and curated by Brad Hammonds, who share in the goal of creating brass protest music that calls fans to action. Brass Against was formed in due to the political climate and feeling there was a real need for politically charged music. Brass Against has since toured Europe twice, including 12 sold out shows on their first outing in early Additional appearances include various festivals, including Boomtown, Pukkelpop, Download Madrid, and more, as well as an opening spot with Lenny Kravitz at the O2 Arena.
On April 10th the group debuted their original music with Sophia Urista on vocals. The process has been the most rewarding thus far. Brass Against is exceptional music with a political edge.
Iconoclastic 3TEETH frontman Thank You - White Fang - Chunks (Vinyl Mincolla is dedicated to exploring the relationship between archetypes, mythologies, history, and the hypocrisy of the human experience.
And that stuck with me. Mincolla and his bandmates started working on the songs in their home studio. When they had a batch of material they were happy with, they called industrial music guru Sean Beavan Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson to produce the album.
And this time, there were no external distractions. We self-produced our first two albums, and that was cool, but having a producer as experienced as Sean to help push us really brought out our best.
And we had a fucking blast. The rest of the album is just as impacting. In addition, the band is inspired by the skewed sounds of bands such as Tool, Sepultura and Deftones.
Understanding or interpreting the meaning beneath the surface has been important to Mincolla for years. One of his greatest epiphanies came when he was a year-old college student and he was hanging out under a statue of Giordano Bruno. Unbeknownst to Mincolla, Bruno was a 15th Century Italian philosopher, astronomer, mathematician, and occultist whose theories predated modern science. When I found that out, I dove down this rabbit hole to learn about hermetic wisdom, symbology, the western occult, Rosicrucianism and Egyptian mythology.
Unlike most bands, which form to write songs, play gigs and maybe make some money, 3TEETH were born out of a synthesis of visual art, inventive thought and unconventional music. At the time, Mincolla was a creative director of an L. Soon, after, he met keyboardist Xavier Swafford, with whom he had much in common.
Then we got more into it. Having a background as an art director, I started creating all this memetic force by creating imagery and leaking teasers about what we were doing.
Inthe members of 3TEETH met up once or twice a week to work on what became their self-titled debut album. A year later, an indie label in Toronto offered them a deal. As part of the contract, Mincolla stipulated that the album be released in limited edition on vinyl, which the record company was initially against. It caused all this hype and the pre-orders started flying. The next thing I knew, we started getting offers for shows.
I booked shows in week to two-week long runs whenever we had the time. During the downtime, the two rockers nerded out about video games, and when the wedding was over, they exchanged information so they could play games together over the internet.
About a year after the wedding, Jones and Mincolla were hanging out when Jones mentioned the inevitable. Suddenly, 3TEETH went from playing for crowds of about to performing for 20, ravenous Tool fans in sold-out arenas. Did we have to switch gear or use monitors? I just knew nothing. Can we try it next year? You get thrown into the water and you sink or swim.
As they began the process of writing their third album, 3TEETH strived to write heavier, more aggressive songs with strong hooks that would appeal to arena audiences as well as club dwellers. I knew I wanted the songs to have strong messages, but at the same time, I wanted to make an album that could appeal to 20, people who all wanted to rock out at the same time.
I wanted there to be a certain amount of mindlessness in the music because I think mindlessness in mindfulness.

The alternative artist has since amassed over 10 Million streams and collaborated with artists such as Tory Lanez, PnB Rock and grandson. Defying genre lines and norms, Zero toes the line of alt-rock and hip-hop. Going through this process taught me that, as both an artist and human being, you have to take risks and be willing to fail in order to truly understand who you are.
In any cultural movement there are leaders and there are followers. But most importantly, there are those uniquely innovative provocateurs that take the familiar, turn it upside down, and burn it with new creative fire. Like a b-boy mad scientist smashing the windows of the mainstream with a Molotov cocktail of passion and inspiration, Hyro The Hero takes the fusion of rap and rock and resurrects it. His combustible concoction is one part The Clash, one part Bad Brains, and several doses of reverence for hip-hop relevance.
The artistic liberation of this lineup change, coupled with the past two years the band spent touring alongside genre-smashing acts such as Thrice, allowed Teenage Wrist to expand on the shoegazing sound that helped establish them as one of the most exciting rock bands around today. But for this record we felt like Thank You - White Fang - Chunks (Vinyl needed to push past that in a way and get a little more aggressive.
We wanted to be more of a rock band this time around. In order to capture this sound, the band enlisted Colin Brittain Basement, A Day to Rememberwhose production style merged perfectly with what Teenage Wrist were trying to accomplish with this album. Since Brittain was such a close collaborator with the band, he was also able to analyze the best ways to record these songs and push the dynamic range of the album into bold new sonic territory. Gallagher started writing the lyrics for Earth Is A Black Hole prior to the pandemic, however as issues like the Coronavirus and racial justice started coming to the forefront of our collective consciousness, those ideas also became embodied in the writing.
All Good Things creates cinematic epic rock that celebrates the underdog, lifts the fallen, and all out gloats in victory. Pairing post apocalyptic pump-up rock with powerful lyrics, AGT crafts a massive, bombastic sensory assault of anthemic heavy rock, summoning vistas associated with gaming or blockbuster movies.
In a masterful feat of reverse-engineering, the LA-based collective has become a potent musical force in the opposite fashion from how most groups get their start. AGT has since been featured in thousands of TV shows, games, films and ads worldwide. When music started being released online, increasing numbers of dedicated fans fell in love with the fist-pounding, high-energy rock anthems and demand grew. Brothers Lewis de Jong guitar and lead vocals and Henry de Jong drums formed the band in when they were 8 and 10 years old.
The three-piece from Waipu, New Zealand, deliver emotionally and politically charged stories of conflict and grief with a warrior-like attitude. Also ingrained in their early learning were stories of New Zealand history told to them by their father, who, alongside the story telling, played them music from Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Anthrax, Ministry, Red Hot Chili Peppers. They have sold out headline shows in New Zealand, Australia, all over Europe, the USA and Canada; and played main stage sets to record crowds at some of the biggest and most prestigious festivals around the world.
The band is managed internationally by Rick Sales Entertainment also representing Slayer, Gojira, Mastodon and Ghost ; and has a worldwide distribution deal with Napalm Records. 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. 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 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. Exploding out of Seattle, WA, hotly-tipped hard rock five-piece AVOID have been rapidly Album) a name for themselves thanks to their electrifying live show and an unabashed experimental approach to their music.
The result is an alchemistic audio dose of heavy hedonism the stamp of a young act unafraid to equally embrace both their innovation and individuality. With new release The Burner, the band are poised to truly make their mark. Blame My Youth is Sean Van Vleet — a name you might not be aware of, but unknowingly heard in your headphones, in a store or on a television. As a former principal songwriter in Chicago indie faves Empires, Van Vleet expanded into the world of songwriting and syncs, providing music for major artists, ads worldwide.
The lyrics and the band name itself provide a glimpse into his past battles with alcohol and substance abuse while detailing a positive and confident march toward a better future — the emergence from darkness into the blinding sunlight with a hopeful hangover. And while the middle 10s were seemingly their moment, internal differences led to the band eventually calling it quits in Soon thereafter, Van Vleet joined Josh Ocean NVDES for a period of spiritual and artistic awakening across Europe in cafes, bars and amongst the nightlife, reinvigorating his inner Hemingway and sparking inspiration in the meantime.
This freedom we found is what propelled me into the early ideas of Blame My Youth. Not only are we really good friends, but I think we all knew that we would eventually work on something awesome together. In junior high he related to the intense emo-rock of Paramore and Fall Out Boy, and the power of songwriters like John Mayer.
Meade challenges the status quo, both musically and lyrically. I would describe ridiculous stuff, and in elementary school I was a Harry Potter nerd.
Soon, though, records became his new sanctuary. One of my favorite lyricists is Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys; the way he describes things, you can almost touch it or smell it. In recording the LP with producer Kimball, Austin committed to exploring and experimenting with new ideas. The closing song that gives the album its title is self-referential and accepting. I own who and what I am. Playing every dimly lit restaurant stage that would help pay bills in college.
Black Sheep was written and recorded in lateand meant to be released independently—until Snakefarm got a hold of it and immediately signed Meade.
Lines still stretch around the block at clubs, warehouses, and theaters on a nightly basis worldwide. Amplifiers still blare out of suburban garages everywhere. Guitars, drums, and bass still translate the emotion and energy of a generation better than anything. No matter what prevailing opinion may be, rock music still maintains its foothold just behind the pop culture curtain—as if in the wings waiting to return. It had to be something everybody could digest in a short and sweet format.
I try to get right to the point. There are so many of these kids still showing up to shows and moshing to real rock music. Born and raised in Canada, Justin cut his teeth by obsessing over the likes of Soundgarden and Led Zeppelin in his youth, while learning how to write music.
Joel responded to the tracks by inviting him to Brooklyn to record at Studio G. Together, they cut the 13 tracks that would comprise the album as the band landed a deal with Spinefarm Records after a New York showcase.
You could also interpret as about a girl. Most of the lyrics deal with love and loss. You can share your feelings and still rock your face off at the end of the day. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. You never know who you might be inspiring. Everybody looked at us like LP were crazy as hell when we first decided to do this. We do what we love with conviction. They started doing so back in However, grandma bought them a karaoke machine, and its myriad stations caught their attention.
Picking up instruments, they brought Hero The Band to life. Buckling down alongside producer Donovan Jarvis in an Atlanta studio, they honed a signature sound throughout three independent releases—Goldn Hearts , Bleach , and Heroshima —and logged plus shows everywhere from Super Bowl Live to AfroPunk.
Not to mention, mutually collaborating with the likes of Big K. It screams. You can spread love and use it to heal your own scars and wounds and others. Life is beautiful. We make decisions and actions that feed that image and in the attempt of making it real we end up believing that is what we are.
EGO Little by little, our frantic and desperate effort to keep this illusion gradually blinds us to what we truly are.
KILL Our true self is a silent witness of our essence, completely independent of the character, and with full potential for anything.
