FEATURED INTERVIEW - Mike Thomas from Lawless Hearts
October 29, 2015 08:01 PM PDT
In an era of music where so many bands sound the same, or fit neatly into one particular genre, we are always happy to find bands that break from the mold and at the same time bring back some of that old school feeling. Such is the case with Florida rockers Lawless Hearts. They combine their influences of classic rock, modern rock, alternative and pop to make a sound that is wholly their own.
I had the pleasure of speaking with founder member/lead guitarist Mike Thomas recently about the bands origins, their recent label signing, and more.
I suggest downloading the interview to listen to at your leisure, since Mike and I ended up chatting for more about 42 minutes!

September 05, 2015 12:21 AM PDT
Southern California hard rock/metal band THE RARE is living up to its name. Their new single 'Addict' is not your everyday metal offering, and it doesn't sit comfortably in a strict rock setting either. The band has artfully blended the genres and as a result have produced a track that can't be pigeonholed. From the moment we heard the song we knew it would be one that would get stuck in our heads, but in that really good way. Check it out, download it, pass it around. If this track is any indication of how good their upcoming record will be, then you are going to want to keep track of THE RARE.FEATURED INTERVIEW -- Dave Scott
August 29, 2015 08:33 PM PDT
Dave Scott is an extraordinarily talented guitarist who was one of the founding members of TUFF LUCK, and 80's hard rock/metal band that was on the cusp of major industry success. The story of why the band never fully crossed over into stardom is the subject of a critically acclaimed documentary by the same name, and Andrew Klein did an amazing job of telling the story of Tuff Luck. You can read our review of the movie here:
I had the pleasure of speaking with Tuff Luck guitarist Dave Scott above the movie, and we also talked about where his career is headed next.FEATURED INTERVIEW - Militia Vox
August 18, 2015 08:44 PM PDT
Who is Militia Vox? She is so many things. She's an artist, a writer, an incredible vocalist (one with a four octave range), and nothing less than a commanding presence. Know for her stints on VHI, MTV2 and Fuse as well as fronting the all female Judas Priest cover band Judas Priestess, Militia Vox is a performer that grabs your attention and keeps it right where she wants it.
Having recently released her single 'Vow' off of her upcoming album The Villainess, Militia sat down with us for one of the best "conversations" we've had in a very long time. Our chat lasted for roughly an hour, so we are breaking it up into three installments. We give you now part 1 of our talk with Militia Vox.

July 20, 2015 07:47 PM PDT
If you're a rock fan, and you're anything like me, a talented guitarist that just sets a track on fire is the Holy Grail. Give me the days of scorching riffs, long guitar solos and the like and I'm a happy camper. Some years back I was introduced to a phenomenal rock band by the name of Fosterchild. They had that great classic rock feel with some modern rock thrown in, and yes......they had a killer guitarist by the name of Brian Quinn. As time has gone on the members of Fosterchild have moved on to other projects, but I have always kept an eye on Brian's career and as it turns out there was good reason to. It was recently announced that Brian is joining not one, but two great bands. He has been named a member of Candlebox as well as Le Projet, a new super project involving members of Candlebox, Sevendust and The Infinite Staircase. It was great to see Brian's name associated with these two bands, and I had the pleasure of speaking with him this past week about everything coming up for both projects.FEATURED TRACK - Le Projet's 'Refugee'
July 08, 2015 07:03 PM PDT
It's not often that I find myself at a loss for words, but I honestly don't even know how to begin to tell you all how great this track is. Le Projet is one of the most exciting projects to come around in a very long time. Comprised of members from Candlebox, Sevendust and The Infinite Staircase, as well as founding member of Fosterchild and one of the best guitarists I've had the pleasure of seeing play, Mr. Brian Quinn, Le Projet is hugely impressive on paper alone. If credentials mean nothing to you, then just listen. I'm just gonna leave this right here.FEATURED INTERVIEW - Bryan McPherson
July 02, 2015 12:44 PM PDT
Bryan McPherson is an impressive artist. He is a singer-songwriter who combines folk, punk, and even some alternative flavor into songs that inspire and hopefully provoke conversation. After speaking with him recently, it is clear he has some great stories to tell. You can check out our interview here, and be sure to check him out on Facebook.FEATURED INTERVIEW - Ashland
July 02, 2015 12:25 PM PDT
Ashland is a four piece alternative/pop band from central Illinois. They create music that is both haunting and aggressive, yet catchy and upbeat at the same time. Lead vocalist, Asia Woodward has a voice that is both beautiful and dark, one that just stays with you. Check out our fun interview with the band here, and give them some love on Facebook.WARPED TOUR 2015 - Meghann Wright Interview
June 22, 2015 08:15 PM PDT
Blues rocker/singer-songwriter Meghann Wright is making her inaugural run on the Vans Warped Tour this summer. She is playing her set in the "acoustic basement" area all summer long, and hers is a set you won't want to miss. She brings a very chill, deep and easily relatable vibe to her music. Meghann took a moment out of her busy opening day of Warped Tour to talk with us about her music as well as causes near and dear to her heart.WARPED TOUR 2015 - MOD SUN Interview
June 18, 2015 08:38 PM PDT
We rounded out our first batch of Warped Tour interviews with none other than MOD SUN. There's nothing better than doing an interview with an artist who embodies the true spirit of the tour or event they are on. Warped Tour has always been the best time in summer that a music fan could have, and just two minutes on the phone with MOD SUN and it was clear that "fun" was definitely the name of the game. Whatever you do, don't pass on his set on Warped Tour. He is a party waiting to happen.
