We Gave It Hell is a progressive/metal/hardcore band out of Las Vegas, Nevada that came across our desk recently. We were instantly drawn in by their sound and knew right then we needed to talk to them. They have been described as a cross between BORN OF OSIRIS and DEFTONES, but we see much more lurking in between. Their album 'The Conditioning' is out now on iTunes, Google Play, and can be heard on Spotify. It is definitely worth a listen!
I had the chance to speak with Taylor and Parker from WGIH recently. Great guys, for sure. Be sure to give them some likes on Facebook and pick up their record. It will be a great addition to your hardcore collection.
I had the pleasure of talking with Bret Mazur, aka EPIC from CRAZYTOWN recently. The band is back with a vengeance, to say the least. They have been on the road, playing shows both in the US and in Europe to crowds who were as happy to have them back as we are. Their new single 'LEMONFACE' packs the punch that we expect from CT and we can't wait for the release of a new full length album.
I had a great chat with EPIC, and you can check out our full conversation here. Be sure to hit up their Facebook and keep your eyes open for more tour dates.
Joe Scorsone, aka FLINTFACE is the personification of hope. He is an inspiring artist in so many ways, and his newly released album 'HOPE' is about faith in ourselves and where we are headed. Joe is the perfect person to convey this message.
I spoke with Joe Scorsone recently about the new album and all that is coming up for FLINTFACE this year. Be sure to pick up 'HOPE' today, 07/22/14.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Terry Stirling of the Southern California band, Viceroy Crux. We talked about the recent release of their debut album 'Round Dice' and the successful single/video 'Rise Above.' It is great to see more and more young bands like VC playing straight up rock these days. Check out what Terry had to say and check them out on Facebook.
Prime Ministers is an Ecuadorian rock band that has been building a following since 2007, and they are now here in the U.S. continuing in that pattern. They play tried and true rock music, perhaps classic with a modern flare. I have the pleasure of speaking with two of the band's members last week about their recently released album 'NOW' and the success of their latest single/video, 'Take It Back.'
The Nearly Deads released their debut album 'Invisible Tonight' today, June 24, 2014. We definitely enjoyed the record, and also had a great time talking to the band about it recently. Be sure to check them out on Facebook, and pick up the album on iTunes.
Ben and Alex Moore make up Oliver Riot, and indie duo from Southern California. They did an acoustic video that we showcased on our site recently and we love their style, so naturally we had to set up an interview with this dynamic duo.
Be sure to check out their Live Lounge performance here:
And give them some likes on Facebook as well.
SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have released “WORLD ON FIRE” the first single and title track off their new album.
For WORLD ON FIRE, SLASH and his band tapped Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus) to produce. Among the 17 songs is an instrumental--a powerful new turn for the band. WORLD ON FIRE is the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and earned SLASH two No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits--his first-ever solo--with “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others.
