DEFTONES US HEADLINE TOUR CONFIRMED

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on DEFTONES US HEADLINE TOUR CONFIRMED

DEFTONES CONFIRM U.S. HEADLINE TOUR

Burbank, CADEFTONES have just completed a triumphant European tour in support of their sixth full-length studio album, DIAMOND EYES, which crash-landed its way into the Billboard Top 10 upon its May 4th release.
Following a string of sold out U.S. dates, and a high-energy performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, DEFTONES made an immediate impact overseas to manic audience reaction and headline-grabbing media response. Back home in the States, the press has also responded in kind:
“Blissed-out and surreal…brutal beauty abounds.” – SPIN Magazine
Diamond Eyes belongs in the pantheon of amazing albums born from tragedy. Unlike their alleged ‘peers’ (do they really have any?), Deftones learned years ago that a whisper can be more terrifying than a scream and power isn’t always about BPMs and downstrokes per minute.
And Godspeed, Mr. Cheng: Your brothers made great record in your honor.”  Alternative Press
While their American fans impatiently await this fall’s highly anticipated BLACKDIAMONDSKYE (also featuring Alice In Chains and Mastodon), DEFTONES are pleased to announce their own headline tour slated to begin this August on the West Coast, which will work its way across the Midwest.

KING HELL TAKES THE STAGE

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on KING HELL TAKES THE STAGE

NYC’S MEGA THEATRICAL FUNK-METAL BAND KING HELL! TAKES THEIR STAGE MAYHEM HOME TO BROOKLYN TO PERFORM AT PUBLIC ASSEMBLY FOR ‘HIPSTERWRECTOMY’ ON THURSDAY, JUNE 17 AND AT ‘GOTHAM ROCKS SHOWCASE’ IN MANHATTAN ON THURSDAY, JULY 29

king-hell-band

King Hell!’s Blog Provides A Peek Into The Band’s Wild World
Featuring ‘The King Hell Report’ Video Clips—A Weekly Whiskey-Fueled Rant By Co-Lead Singer Doc Thompson With
900,000+ Views Online

Brooklyn’s very own King Hell!, the ‘Epic Defenders of Metal and Funk,’ plan to tear up their home turf of Brooklyn on Thursday, June 17 at 10 p.m., with a performance at hotspot Public Assembly showcasing at “Hipsterwrectomy.” King Hell’s dueling vocals of Samwell and Doc Thompson, joined by guitarist Mötherfökker (aka Möfö), drummer Shille-Lee, and bassist Zigabot, will bring their theatrical stage personas and raw energy performance to fans and newcomers.

The rockers then pack up their act and head across the Brooklyn Bridge to perform at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom for the “Gotham Rocks Showcase” on Thursday, July 29. The band will give another intense performance of tracks off their well received full-length debut album Rhythm and Bruise.

Fans looking for a deeper connection with King Hell! must check out the band’s blog at www.kinghellmetal.com. A representation of their outrageous performances and loud personalities, this hilarious blog takes you inside the daily musings of the guys and features Doc Thompson’s video blogs called the King Hell Report. With over 900,000 views, The King Hell Report is “a weekly whiskey-fueled rant” from the band’s co-lead singer.

Legendary “gonzo journalist” Hunter S. Thompson made up his own adjective to describe the ultimate of something: “It was the king hell of all parties!” No doubt, the late great author of “Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas” would feel the same sense of visceral energy if he’d had the chance to check out King Hell!, the furious and funky, intensely tongue-in-cheek, indie powerhouse named after his turn of phrase.king-hell-cd

ROADRUNNER RECORDS SIGNS KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on ROADRUNNER RECORDS SIGNS KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD

ROADRUNNER RECORDS SIGNS KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD

New York, NY: Roadrunner/ Loud & Proud Records is pleased to announce the signing of four-time Grammy nominated, American blues/rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd to a worldwide, multi-album deal. He is currently working on his Roadrunner/Loud & Proud debut projects, which include his first live album and a new studio album.

“Kenny Wayne is a special artist” stated Loud & Proud President Tom Lipsky. “He is passionate about his songwriting, his musicianship and he values the relationship that he has with his fans.”

Shepherd himself said, “I am both excited and proud to be a part of the Roadrunner/Loud & Proud family. We have some very exciting music coming for our fans, and I couldn’t think of a better home for my music. I’ve been playing it ‘loud and proud’ for years.”

Widely regarded as a guitar hero before that term exploded into pop culture with the video game, the self-taught Shepherd learned to play at the tender age of seven-years-old, learning Muddy Waters licks while listening to his father’s record collection. At 13, he was invited onstage and performed with New Orleans bluesman Bryan Lee. Signed to Giant Records at 16, Shepherd recorded his first album while a senior in high school.

In 1997, Kenny was ranked third in Guitar World’s list of favorite blues artists behind legends B.B. King and Eric Clapton. He has enjoyed two platinum and one gold albums, six Top 10 singles and his album Trouble Is holds the distinction of being the longest running album on the Billboard Blues Charts. It held strong at #1 for 20 weeks including 15 weeks consecutively. The hit single “Blue on Black” was also a record-breaker, #1 for 17 consecutive weeks at rock radio.

Shepherd’s decorated career includes four Grammy nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville Gibson Awards, the Blues Foundation’s “Keeping the Blues Alive” Award and a Blues Music Award. In September 2008 Fender released the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Signature Series Stratocaster, designed exclusively by Shepherd. The inimitable James Brown referred to him as “one of the wonders of the world.”

His most recent release, 2007’s #1 selling Blues Album 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads, documents Shepherd as he travels the country to jam with and interview the last of the authentic blues musicians. This full length CD/DVD documentary was nominated for two Grammys, aired on PBS television nationwide and has been certified RIAA Gold as a Long Form Video.

SERJ TANKIAN’S NEW SOLO ALBUM TO BE RELEASED

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on SERJ TANKIAN’S NEW SOLO ALBUM TO BE RELEASED

SERJ TANKIAN’S NEW SOLO ALBUM,

IMPERFECT HARMONIES, TO BE RELEASED

BY SERJICAL STRIKE/REPRISE RECORDS

ON SEPTEMBER 7TH, 2010

FIRST SINGLE, “LEFT OF CENTER,” GOES TO RADIO ON JULY 12TH

TANKIAN ON THE ROAD ALL SUMMER AND EARLY FALL

Burbank, CA – Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and political activist Serj Tankian will release a new solo album, titled Imperfect Harmonies, on Serjical Strike/Reprise Records on September 7th, 2010. The album is the second solo release from the System Of A Down frontman, following up his critically acclaimed 2007 solo debut Elect the Dead. As with Elect the Dead, Tankian produced Imperfect Harmonies himself at his home studio in Los Angeles.
“Where Elect the Dead was essentially a rock record with progressive melodic elements,” Tankian says, “Imperfect Harmonies could be classified as rock because it is punchy with many peaks throughout, but the instrumentation is somewhat different. Though there are live drums, bass, and some guitars, the driving aspects are electronic and orchestral. It’s quite unique in its sound palette. This is, in essence, music that has sat in the vat and matured to a ripe sensation and is now ready to serve.”
Imperfect Harmonies is as powerful and musically eclectic as its predecessor. “I have been calling the music ‘electro-orchestral-jazz-rock’ because it has all of those aspects in prominence within the songs,” Tankian says. “A few are more stripped down, but the majority of the songs have this huge wall of sound presented in a way I’ve never heard before. It’s not common to have a song that is both electronic and orchestral since one is synthetic and the other organic, but I found a way of meshing a lot of these colors together.”
The album has been influenced by Tankian’s experience making Elect the Dead Symphony, a symphonic interpretation of his debut that had its inaugural performance in New Zealand with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra in March 2009. The performance has been captured on the CD/DVD Elect the Dead Symphony. “The making of Elect the Dead Symphony gave me the confidence and tools to create ensemble pieces for orchestra more confidently and effectively than before,” Tankian says. “And that became one of the primary colors for this record along with electronic, jazz, and live instrumentation.”
Tankian has a series of upcoming live Elect the Dead Symphony shows planned for the summer, as well as the kickoff to the Imperfect Harmonies World Tour in August with a series of European festivals and headlining shows, including appearances at Belgium’s Pukkelpop and the Leeds and Reading festivals in the U.K. All upcoming tour dates are as follows:

CHRISTOPHER NOLAN’S MOVIE SOUNDTRACK TO BE RELEASED

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on CHRISTOPHER NOLAN’S MOVIE SOUNDTRACK TO BE RELEASED

WARNER BROS. RECORDS

TO RELEASE SOUNDTRACK TO

CHRISTOPHER NOLAN’S NEW FEATURE FILM

INCEPTION ON JULY 13TH 2010

INCEPTION: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE FEATURES ORIGINAL SCORE BY OSCAR®-WINNING FILM COMPOSER HANS ZIMMER

Burbank, CAInception: Music From The Motion Picture — the dramatic score to the highly anticipated sci-fi actioner Inception — will be released digitally and on CD by Warner Bros. Records on July 13th, three days before the movie opens nationwide in theatres and IMAX on July 16th. A vinyl edition of the soundtrack will be released on August 3rd.
Zimmer is one of the film industry’s most respected and sought-after composers with a career that encompasses more than 100 film and television scores.  He previously collaborated with Christopher Nolan on the films Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.  An Academy Award® winner for his score for The Lion King, Zimmer has also received seven additional Oscar® nominations for his work on Sherlock Holmes, Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, Rain Man, As Good as It Gets, The Preacher’s Wife and The Prince of Egypt.  Among his many honors, Zimmer has also won two Golden Globes and three Grammy Awards.
Inception: Music From The Motion Picture was produced by Zimmer, Lorne Balfe, Christopher Nolan, and Alex Gibson. Guitarist Johnny Marr (The Smiths, Modest Mouse, The Cribs) performs on eight of the tracks, including “528491” and “Time,” both of which will be available exclusively for purchase as full track downloads on Verizon’s VCAST on July 6th.  The digital version of the soundtrack will feature two bonus tracks, “Projections” and “Don’t Think About Elephants.”
Zimmer says, “My goal for the score was to create a complete sonic world to immerse the audience—big waves of sound that connect the different layers of dreaming but really focus on a simple emotional thread.”
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in Inception, an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable.  Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible—inception.  Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one.  If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move.  An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.  This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.
A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, Inception is being distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. Christopher Nolan wrote and directed the film and also produced together with Emma Thomas. Chris Brigham and Thomas Tull served as executive producers. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Dileep Rao and Michael Caine.
The track listing for Inception: Music From The Motion Picture is as follows:

1. Half Remembered Dream

2. We Built Our Own World
3. Dream Is Collapsing
4. Radical Notion
5. Old Souls
6. 528491
7. Mombassa
8. One Simple Idea
9. Dream Within A Dream
10. Waiting for a Train
11. Paradox
12. Time
13. Projections (bonus track)
14. Don’t Think About Elephants (bonus track)

PORCUPINE JOINS COHEED & CAMBRIA ON TOUR

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on PORCUPINE JOINS COHEED & CAMBRIA ON TOUR

Porcupine Tree Joins Coheed and Cambria  For U.S. Tour Dates In August

Porcupine Tree’s Second Live Concert DVD, ‘Anesthetize,’ Out Now

(New York, NY): This summer, UK art-rockers Porcupine Tree will join up with Coheed and Cambria for a 12-date co-headlining U.S. tour that kicks off at the Hollywood Palladium in LA on August 12. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, June 25.  It is the third round of U.S. touring for Porcupine Tree since their top-25 debut of The Incident last September.

These shows also continue the momentum that Porcupine Tree have built up over the last several months. At Coachella, the New York Times praised the “progressive rock virtuosos” performance while the Wall Street Journal raved that Porcupine Tree “attacked [their] compositions with ferocity.” Porcupine Tree’s North American Spring tour sold out, and they have already sold out their October show at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

And that is by no means the extent of Porcupine Tree’s activity this summer. Further events are listed below.

*Porcupine Tree will headline Radio City Music Hall September 24.

*The band has released their second live concert film, ‘Anesthetize,’ on DVD and Blu-Ray. Amazon sold out of the Blu-Ray version on pre-orders alone, and the DVD has notched top-10 debuts in the UK, Germany, Finland, Sweden, and Holland.

*Porcupine Tree has posted “Atlanta,” a complete 2-hour live performance from the ‘Fear of a Blank Planet’ tour, as a download from the PT Store. All proceeds from this digital-only release will go towards Japan bass player Mick Karn’s treatment for cancer.

*Porcupine Tree will play several major festivals in Europe including Roskilde (Denmark), Rock Werchter (Belgium), and Sonisphere (Spain).

*Gavin Harrison has been named “Best Progressive Drummer” for the fourth consecutive year in the 2010 Modern Drummer readers’ poll.

*Steven Wilson co-wrote and sang the track “The Fountain” on Pendulum’s new album Immersion, which entered the UK album charts at #1.

*And finally, Steven Wilson has launched a second career as a writer. Wilson now pens the back-page column for Electronic Musician and was recently published in the New York Times as well. Check out both here: http://emusician.com/interviews/in_the_mix/in_the_mix_new_is_old/ and http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/15/opinion/l15music.html

DRAGON FORCE TO REL ALBUM SOON

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on DRAGON FORCE TO REL ALBUM SOON

dragonforce

TO RELEASE FIRST LIVE ALBUM TWILIGHT DEMENTIA ON SEPTEMBER 14

(New York, New York): DRAGONFORCE, known for their over-the-top, infinitely fun, wildly entertaining live show, which has slayed the main stages of Ozzfest, Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and countless headlining shows the world over, have captured the whole shebang on Twilight Dementia, a double-CD which documents their Ultra Beatdown tour. The tour ran from 2008 through 2009 and includes tracks from all of the band’s albums, including the hit “Through the Fire and the Flames,” which was featured on Guitar Hero. The two-disc affair will be unleashed on September 14.

Twilight Dementia was produced by longstanding DF collaborator Karl Groom along with band guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman. It features 13 tracks and is an exercise in soaring vocals and advanced guitar pyrotechnics. It was recorded across 19 UK shows, with the very best takes lovingly compiled and mixed by Groom, Totman and Li.

“For years, fans have been asking us to record a live album, but honestly, we never really had the time due to our worldwide touring commitments and studio album recording,” Li said. “However, due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans on the ‘Ultra Beatdown World Tour,’ we decided to finally put some real thought into it.”

Li continued, “The idea was to record every single show from the last leg of the tour, so we could pick the best take of each song without needing to do any overdubs in the studio; keeping the whole thing live, like all the classic live metal albums. These recordings really capture the raw sonic energy of a DragonForce show in fine detail. It is so real that you can hear the noise of the crowd and experience the show as it was that night – you can even hear the guitar pedals being stepped on!”

The track listing for the collection is as follows:

Disc 1:

“Heroes of Our Time”

“Operation Ground and Pound”

“Reasons to Live”

“Fury of the Storm”

“Fields of Despair”

“Starfire”

“Soldiers of the Wasteland”

Disc 2

“My Spirit Will Go On”

“Where Dragons Rule”

“The Last Journey Home”

“Valley of the Damned”

“Strike of the Ninja”

“Through the Fire and Flames”

Formed in 1999, DragonForce – a multi-national amalgam of players at the very top of their game – have spent the past decade proving that virtuoso musicianship and strong songwriting values can appeal to rock fans right across the board; it’s a journey that has seen the band playing sold-out headline shows around the world, including in markets as far afield as China, Hawaii, New Zealand, Russia & Columbia, forging a telling relationship with the ‘Guitar Hero’ franchise, and tucking four strong studio albums under their collective belt, with sales currently topping the two million mark worldwide.

And now, whilst seeking a replacement for recently departed frontman ZP Theart, the band have delivered a set of recordings that successfully highlight the non-stop energy and entertainment-or-bust ethos of the DragonForce musicians in full live flow.

CRAZY LOVE TOUR

MICHAEL BUBLÉ RETURNS TO U.S.

FOLLOWING TRIUMPHANT EUROPEAN TOUR

‘CRAZY LOVE’ TOUR

HOTTEST TICKET OF THE SUMMER

Burbank, CA – New York, NY – Canadian superstar Michael Bublé continues his phenomenal ability to fill  arenas for his “Crazy Love” summer tour in the midst  of reports of low ticket sales for many of this summer’s concerts.
Following a series of sellout European shows, the Grammy winning Bublé returns to the US beginning today, June 22nd in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the second leg of his “Crazy Love” tour which will play 21 markets ending August 28th in Las Vegas.  The tour is expected to be a complete sell-out.
“In the current climate of summer tours, Michael Bublé is a shining star,” stated ‘Crazy Love’s”  national tour promoter Don Fox of Beaver Productions.  “With Michael’s following including such a wide demographic span along with the amazing reviews of this show around the world, this is surely going to become one of the biggest tours in the US this summer,” he concluded.
“It was sensational, positively sensational…The sort of superstar-solidifying show you just know they’ll be talking about 25 years and more from now,” raved the Orange County Register.
“What truly separates this king from all the other pretenders to the throne is the live show…For it’s on the concert stage that Bublé shines the brightest,” said the San Jose Mercury News.
Tickets for Bublé’s tour in three Texas markets of Dallas, Houston and San Antonio sold out in 30 minutes.  The first leg of the month long “Crazy Love” tour which began March 12th of this year was also a total sell out and was seen by a quarter of a million Michael Bublé fans.  Three new dates have been added to the tour including Sacramento on August 24th, San Diego on August 27th and the closing show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Bublé, a multi-Grammy winner has been riding high with the multi-platinum success of “Crazy Love” which has remained on the Billboard Pop Charts since its No. 1 debut 37 weeks ago and has held the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Charts since its release.  “Haven’t Met You Yet”, the Bublé penned current single remains a staple at pop radio.

The album was produced by David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, All Time Low) and spawned the rock radio hit “Champagne,” which climbed to No. 1 on both the BDS/Billboard Active Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, making Cavo the first new artist to hit the top spot on the Mainstream chart since 2003. The band’s second single, “Crash,” reached No. 7 on the Active Rock chart, with an audience of more than 80 million.
“My Little Secret,” the fourth single from Bright Nights Dark Days, hits radio this week.

*           *           *           *

“Lead singer Casey Walker has the quintessential rock voice.” — FanBolt.com

TOP TOURING ARTISTS JOIN KORN IN BOYCOTT

TOP TOURING ARTISTS JOIN KORN IN BOYCOTT OF BP

(New York, NY): KORN‘s boycott of BP has started a ground swell of like-minded musicians intent on making a statement against the devastation in The Gulf caused by BP’s record setting oil spill.  The following top touring artists have joined the cause and have committed to avoid the use of fuel sold by BP or its affiliates on their upcoming tours for 2010: Disturbed, Lady Gaga, Rise Against, Godsmack, Backstreet Boys, Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Slightly Stoopid, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Black Label Society with Zakk Wylde, Anthrax, Creed, Filter, Hellyeah and Flogging Molly.

“This is the worst thing that has ever happened to the environment in U.S. history.  From everything we’re hearing about now, it’s become clear that BP cut corners to put profit ahead of safety.  The message we are sending should tell all the oil companies to spend the money and take the necessary precautions to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” said Jonathon Davis of KORN. “I’m really proud that this many artists have already come on board, and I hope more will join soon.”

First estimates show close to 100 vehicles, trucks and buses from the committed artists will be involved in the boycott this summer.  The number is continuously growing, resulting in tours all across North America refusing to fill up with BP products.  More touring artists and people throughout the continent are uniting in boycotts against BP as a result of the catastrophic oil spill.

Some summer festival tours like The Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival are already known for using biofuels.  However, the entire festival, comprised of twelve bands, will promise to not purchase their biofuels from BP or any of their affiliates. Tour creator Kevin Lyman agrees, stating “We have so many friends that are now affected by this spill that unless BP spends whatever is needed their livelihoods are lost forever.  To that end we are encouraging everyone we deal with to find alternative ways to get down the road this summer.”
