MEAGHAN SMITH APPEARANCE AT 2010 LILITH FAIR

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on MEAGHAN SMITH APPEARANCE AT 2010 LILITH FAIR

MEAGHAN SMITH

TO APPEAR ON THIS SUMMER’S LILITH FAIR

Full-Length Debut The Cricket’s Orchestra Out Now On Sire Records

Burbank, CA – Acclaimed Canadian musician Meaghan Smith will join Sarah McLachlan, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige and others on the 2010 Lilith Fair this summer. Smith will join the traveling celebration of women in music for shows at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis on July 16th and First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Chicago on July 17th in the U.S., as well as the Bell Center in Montreal, QC on July 23rd in Canada.
Smith released her debut full-length album, The Cricket’s Orchestra, in February 2010 to critical acclaim. The New York Times described it as, “…wry and retro, with wordplay harking back to Tin Pan Alley’s heyday,” while the Detroit Free Press declared “…material blissfully capturing the feel of another era.”
The 11-track album was written in Smith’s home of Halifax, Nova Scotia and was recorded in Toronto with help from producer Les Cooper. Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Flaming Lips) also collaborated with Smith on the record, producing the lead track “Heartbroken.”
The child of a piano-teacher mother and a bass-playing father, Smith devoured old musicals and animated films as a child and later fell in love with the jazz and big-band music of the ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s. Those early inspirations influenced the material featured on the album, as Smith says, “My music is modern vintage. The record incorporates a lot of instrumentation from older eras in the form of horns, strings and arrangements, but I also love DJs and their turntables.” These modern influences are reflected on the record through the use of turntables, omnichords, melotrons and optigons.
Smith has already found success in the area of film and television—her rendition of the Pixies classic “Here Comes Your Man” (produced by T-Bone Burnett) was featured in the acclaimed film (500) Days of Summer. Additionally, two original songs from the record, “A Piece For You” and “5 More Minutes,” have been included in episodes of One Tree Hill and Grey’s Anatomy. Smith has joined many legendary and acclaimed musicians on the road including k.d. lang, Sarah McLachlan, Eric Hutchinson, Chantal Kreviazuk, Ron Sexsmith and Joe Purdy.
Meaghan Smith upcoming tour dates:
July 16 St. Louis, MO              Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
July 17 Chicago, IL                  First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre
July 23 Montreal, QC               Bell Center

Loud & Proud logo

METHODS OF MAYHEM’S NEW ALBUM TITLE/RELEASE DATE REVEALED:

“A PUBLIC DISSERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT”

DUE OUT SEPTEMBER 21ST

ALBUM FEATURES COLLABORATIONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

(New York, NY) – Tommy Lee has rocked every continent multiple times, sold millions of records with Motley Crue and on his own, done everything a musician dreams of doing, except he’s never made a record with the entire world.  The new Methods Of Mayhem album, now entitled A PUBLIC DISSERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT, is set for release on September 21st and features Tommy Lee collaborating with the world.  Lee commented, “When I founded Methods in 1999, the whole purpose of the band was to be all over the place.  In keeping with that, this Methods isn’t anything like the last one. There’s no hip hop and there’s no roster of guest stars. This time, it’s me, my band, and the world.”  Please see below for the track listing for A PUBLIC DISSERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.

Tommy Lee and his team, including producer Scott Humphrey, singer-guitarist J3 and others, wrote and recorded the songs for the new album, then made the core components of each  available for download on www.thepublicrecord.com to anyone who wished to add their playing or otherwise re-interpret the music however they saw fit. Lee listened to every single submission that was uploaded, chose the best, and integrated the actual audio tracks into the album’s final cuts.  Every single musician whose part was used is credited and thanked on the album.

The song files were made available on The Public Record on October 5th, 2009. By the end of the submission period in February, 2010, the page was viewed over 1 million times and over 10,000 submissions were uploaded.  What came back once the public got its hands on the raw ingredients was truly all over the map – just as Tommy Lee had hoped.  The diverse submissions included techno tracks sent in from Japan, hand drum rhythms from India and searing guitar solos from as close to home as San Diego.

Methods of Mayhem self-titled debut was released in 1999 and was certified RIAA Gold.  The album featured Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock and Fred Durst among others.  Methods Of Mayhem’s set was a featured highlight of 2000’s Ozzfest.

A PUBLIC DISSERVICE ANNOUNCMENT track listing:

1.    Drunk Uncle Pete

2.    Time Bomb

3.    Louder

4.    Fight Song

5.    Blame

6.    Two Ways

7.    Talk Me Off The Ledge

8.    Only One

9.    All I Wanna Do

10.  Back To Before

11.  Party Instructions

VIDEO FOR “OILDALE” TO PREMIERE ON MTV2 ON MAY 31

KORN III – REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE OUT JULY 13

CO-HEADLINING ROCK STAR ENERGY MAYHEM FEST ALL SUMMER

New York, NY: Multi-platinum Grammy winners KORN will premiere the video for their brand new single “Oildale (Leave Me Alone)” on MTV2 on May 31 at 6 AM ET. This marks the worldwide unveiling of the clip and coincides with the band’s weeklong MTV Takeover, where they hosted both Headbanger’s Ball and Rock the Deuce. Korn’s new album, Korn III – Remember Who You Are, is due out July 13. It is the band’s first release for Roadrunner Records and is their ninth studio release. Korn III was produced by Ross Robinson, who manned the boards for the band’s first two albums, Korn and Life is Peachy.

As its title suggests, Korn III – Remember Who You Are finds the band sticking to its roots, and the song and video are vintage Korn; the band once again taps into the visceral emotion that defined their earliest records, all the while remaining true to their well-honed experience and growth as a band over the past decade-plus. “We thought it was fitting to have the first single and video from Korn III – Remember Who You Are be ‘Oildale (Leave Me Alone),’ since Oildale is near where we grew up as kids,” vocalist Jonathan Davis said about the song and its accompanying video. “It’s a poverty stricken area surrounded by endless, rich oil fields. The money doesn’t really help the local people and it’s tough for local kids to get out of there. I feel blessed that our music busted us out.”

Also, a free Mp3 download of “Are You Ready to Live” will be available for 24 hours on www.roadrunnerrecords.com starting at 11 AM ET today, May 27. To download the song, go here: http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/areyoureadytolive/.

2010 is shaping up to be another prolific and productive year for Korn, as the band is currently headlining the Spring edition of the Jagermeister Tour, “Korn’s Ballroom Blitz,” as they have named it. They are playing to capacity crowds across the US and debuting new material along the way. The band heads right back out on the road this summer, as they co-headline the Rock Star Energy Mayhem Fest through July and August. Be sure to look for the forthcoming Mayhem-themed issue of Revolver, as the band will grace the cover.

Don’t forget to tune in for the video premiere on May 31!

OVER 450 U.S. THEATERS IN MORE THAN 140 U.S. MARKETS TO EXHIBIT CONCERT EVENT TO FANS  TICKETS TO GO ON SALE STARTING TODAY, FRIDAY, MAY 21ST

These four legendary acts broke out of the underground thrash movement in the 1980’s to dominate the metal world, selling millions of records and packing arenas across the globe. Despite huge demand, these musical giants have never shared the same stage until now. The legendary June 22nd concert from the tour’s stop of the Sonisphere Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria will air the same day in over 450 theaters in more than 140 markets in the U.S., as well as beamed into theaters in Europe, Canada and Latin America.

The high-definition concert presentation will memorialize the event and the impact will be amplified globally with the cinema screenings, making the dreams of fans around the world over become a reality.

Lars Ulrich of Metallica says of this historic announcement, “Who would have thought that more than 25 years after its inception, thrash metal’s Big Four would not only still be around, be more popular than ever, playing shows together at stadiums all over Europe, and on top of that, coming to a movie theater near you in High Definition (for better or worse??!!).  Bring it on!”

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian says Damn, as if this Big 4 tour wasn’t exciting enough now we get to be on the big screen worldwide! Metal at the movies, two big horns up!  It is unbelievably gratifying that this means so much to the metal community around the globe. Get your tix, grab some popcorn and get ready to bang your head!”

Declares Slayer’s Kerry King, “I can’t believe someone didn’t make this happen 15 years ago!  The fans finally get what they want.  I think it’s awesome!”

Says Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, “The magnitude of this event hasn’t really sunk in yet, and I am thrilled to know that people around the planet will be able to walk into a movie theater and experience the greatest line up of Heavy Metal in the history of the world!”

CHARICE’S SELF TITLED DEBUT CD

LANDS IN THE TOP 10 ON BILLBOARD TOP 200 CHART

FANS FLIP FOR FILIPINO SINGING SENSATION FOLLOWING APPEARANCES ON OPRAH & QVC

Burbank, CA – Charice, the 18 year old sizzling hot singing star from the Philippines, landed the No. 8 slot on this week’s Billboard charts with sales of 42,985 for her self-titled CD, it was confirmed today by 143/Reprise Records.  With her 4th appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show the day of release, followed by a half hour performance that evening on QVC, Charice has clearly captured the hearts of Americans of all ages–and Canada as well, where her CD debuted at No. 4.
“Pyramid,” the first single (performed with Iyaz) was No. 1 last week on the Billboard Dance Charts and is currently being played on over 100 radio stations.  Sales of “Pyramid” have jumped 384% the week of the CD’s release.  The YouTube phenom’s viral video of “Pyramid” has received well over six million views.  There were also three million views of the official video which has been added into rotation on MTV.   Charice is scheduled to perform on Regis & Kelly on June 16th.
“She stands barely five feet tall…but when pop singer Charice opens her mouth, out pours a voice as burly and sure as Whitney Houston’s in her “I Will Always Love You” prime,” raved the Daily News.  “A powerhouse performance…the stuff of a young Celine, Whitney or Mariah,” glowed People Magazine.
“This has been the most exciting week of my life,” said Charice. “It’s been such a dream come true for me and my family to have so much love from fans all around the world.
Charice started her singing career at age four when her mother, also a singer, discovered the pint size girl singing on a table.  She went on to perform in hundreds of singing contests in Southeast Asia.  One of her many fans (“Chasters”) put one of her performances up on YouTube and a star was born.  She first appeared in the US on the Ellen Show and then came to the attention of Oprah Winfrey and “Hit Man” David Foster, who signed her and executive produced her current album.   In 2009 Charice appeared in the “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel” film and performed the Diane Warren-written and David Foster-produced “Note to God,” which had digital sales of over 110,000 copies.

FOXY SHAZAM ANNOUNCE TOUR

FOXY SHAZAM ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR

SUPPORTING HOLE

SELF-TITLED SIRE RECORDS DEBUT OUT NOW

Burbank, CA – On the heels of a nationwide headlining run that included sold-out NYC and LA shows, the inimitable Foxy Shazam will be spending their summer on the road with Hole.  The month-long tour kicks off June 22nd in Philadephia, PA, and runs through July 16th in Minneapolis, MN.  Foxy Shazam’s self-titled major label debut is out now on Sire Records.

Critical praise for Foxy Shazam has been effusive.  Their songs “glitter like diamonds and kick like mules” said SPIN magazine, which named the band one of 10 Artists to Watch in 2010 in their December/January issue.  The Houston Press called Foxy a “glam-pop face melter,” American Songwriter praised their “soulful, groove-laden punk,” and Alternative Press gushed “(Foxy Shazam) incorporate ’70s soul, ’50s rock ‘n’ roll, ’80s pop, Broadway torch songs and even a little Blood Brothers-esque post-hardcore into their piano-driven tunes-and frankly, their major-label debut is magnificent.”  MTV Buzzworthy recently selected them as a Buzz On artist, and their debut single “Unstoppable” was chosen to play during this year’s Superbowl.
Citing influences as varied as Marvin Gaye, Elton John and “Born To Run”-era Bruce Springsteen, Foxy Shazam has been creating unique, genre-defying music since they formed in 2004.  From the anthemic “Unstoppable” to doo wop power ballad “Bye Bye Symphony” and the swooning “Connect Me,” Foxy Shazam is an amalgam of blues, soul, and brash pop bound by a no holds barred punk-rock aesthetic.
Foxy Shazam tour dates supporting Hole are as follows:
June 22 – Electric Factory – Philadelphia, PA
June 23 – House of Blues – Boston, MA
June 25 – Wellmont Thatre – Monclair, NJ
June 26 – Norva – Norfolk, VA
June 27 – The 9:30 Club- Washington, DC
June 29 – Ryman Auditorium – Nashville, TN
June 30 – Tabernacle – Atlanta, GA
July 02 – Fillmore Miami Beach – Miami, FL
July 03 – Hard Rock Live – Orlando, FL
July 06 – House of Blues – Houston, TX
July 07 – Sound Academy – Toronto, ON
July 10 – Forecastle Festival- Louisville, KY
July 11 – The Fillmore – Detroit, MI
July 13 – The Pageant – St. Louis, MO
July 14 – The Vic Theatre – Chicago, IL
July 15 – The Vic Theatre – Chicago, IL
July 16 – First Avenue, Minneapolis, MN
