SIENNA WILD ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘YOU WOULDN’T KNOW’ + NATIONAL TOUR IN JANUARY 2020

 

ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE

YOU WOULDN’T KNOW

+ NATIONAL TOUR IN JANUARY 2020


Indie rockers on the rise, Melbourne’s Sienna Wild have today announced their exhilarating, gritty new single You Wouldn’t Know, a track that places the listener in a strange and unsettling situation between two lovers, out today, December 2.  The group have also released a killer lyric video to accompany the track.  To celebrate all things You Wouldn’t Know, Sienna Wild is heading out on a national tour in January 2020, kicking off at Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney on January 2, then moving through Adelaide, Brisbane, and wrapping up with a hometown show in Melbourne at The Tote on January 31.

For fans of Catfish and the Bottlemen, Eskimo Joe and Arctic Monkeys, You Wouldn’t Know is an absolute firecracker of a song.  Soaring guitars reign, while searing, affecting vocals ride atop the arrangement with strength and power.  You Wouldn’t Know is pretty much everything a modern rock fan could want in a track, and is guaranteed to get you pushing your way through the dancefloor to bust a move.  Speaking on the interesting inspiration behind the track, bass guitarist and vocalist Louis Goutos enthuses, “The sentiment behind the single came from me setting myself a challenge of writing from the perspective of a third party in a break up.  Up to that point, our writing had been about power within a relationship, whether it be during good times or bad.  This time,  I wanted to write a song about an outsider who becomes involved in a break up, as opposed to the two protagonists telling the story.  It is essentially about a girl telling her boyfriend’s best friend she’s going to leave her man, but the boyfriend is too oblivious to realise.  Hence, he ‘wouldn’t know’, but the friend does!”

Sienna Wild are thrilled to be taking You Wouldn’t Know on the road, and it’s pretty clear why once you hit play on this track – it’s definitely one for a hot, sweaty, summer gig.  Giving fans a taste of what to expect from their 2020 tour, Louis says, “Fans can expect a tight rock performance full of swirling guitars, crashing choruses and compelling dynamics.  You’ll see a band who have conviction and believe what they say, and mean what they do.  A good time for all!”  

As fans of music from the very beginning, Sienna Wild are a passionate group of young musicians who are excited to share this stunning new track with the world.  Reflecting on the formation of Sienna Wild, Louis says, “Fortunately, I came from a musical family and there were always instruments around so I just started playing things and learning by listening.  I started off with the piano, then the drums, until finally the bass called, and that was when I found my voice (so to speak).  I found like-minded musicians and spirits in the guys from Sienna Wild, and haven’t looked back ever since.  Also none of us are opposed to a few beers and a good time… I reckon listeners should get around Sienna Wild now, before someone else gets there first! You might just be the one to say ‘I told you so’” 

Sienna Wild is Louis Goutos (bass and vocals), Jonathan Giokas (lead guitar) Lewis Ciavarella (rhythm guitar and backing vocals) and Lucas Manitta (drums).

You Wouldn’t Know is out today, December 2.

Formed in Newark, NJ, My Chemical Romance made its debut in 2002 with the independently released album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. The band signed to Reprise Records the following year and made its major label debut with 2004’s Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, now 3x certified Platinum. The album contained the Platinum hit “I’m Not Okay (I Promise),” the Gold-certified “Helena,” and “The Ghost of You.” Rolling Stone hailed the 3x Platinum The Black Parade as one of the top albums of 2006.

The band toured extensively behind the album – appearing as characters from The Black Parade – and released the live album The Black Parade is Dead! in 2008. Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys was released in 2010 and topped Billboard’s Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was followed by a series of singles later released as Conventional Weapons in 2013. Selling out stadiums across the globe and providing the soundtrack of a generation, we are beyond excited to welcome them exclusively to Download 2020 (there will be no side shows).

Since Deftonesinception, the multiplatinum, Grammy-Winning alternative rock band from Sacramento, CA have quietly been pursuing two paths, delivering songs defined by churning, double-fisted aggression while also testing the boundaries of music by incorporating elements of psychedelia and shoegaze. Deftones have released seven albums to date and have sold over 10 million albums worldwide.

Since 1992, beloved Arizona alternative rock band Jimmy Eat World have been selling out venues, headlining festivals and scoring top ten albums! Their 2001 breakthrough Bleed American that spawned hit singles, ‘The Middle’, ‘Hear You Me’, ‘Bleed American’ and ‘Sweetness’ has proved to be a timeless release that continues to gain new generations of teenage punks struggling to fit in, who swiftly adopt their songs as the soundtrack to their lives. They land at Download in the wake of the release of their tenth studio LP, Surviving (Oct 2019), giving Australian fans their first taste of the new tracks live.

Fans have been patiently waiting four years for the return of legendary Maryland rockers the mighty Clutch!

Industrial metal pioneers Ministry bring their synth pop heavy repertoire to Download 2020. Fourteen studio albums since their inception in 1981, including their seminal LPs Twitch, The Land Of Rape and Honey and The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste and their mainstream breakthrough LP Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and The Way to Suck Eggs, have cemented Ministry as one of the most consistent prolific heavy artists of modern times. With a new line up, incredibly full sound, and some might say a return to the roots of Ministry, the band is prepared to release a record that is socially relevant and sonically effective.

Sweden’s leading metal band In Flames have never stopped moving forward during the more than 20 years they’ve been performing. The melodic death metal of the band’s early days has since evolved into a unique expression, manifested in 13 albums like ‘A Sense of Purpose’, ‘Sounds of a Playground Fading’, ‘Siren Charms’ and their latest release, ‘I, The Mask’ recorded in Los Angeles with multi Grammy-nominated producer, Howard Benson. 2019’s ‘I, The Mask’ charted #1 in Sweden and Austria, #2 in Germany and #1 in US Top Rock and Metal Albums. In Flames are a band that fans around the world can rely on.

For over three decades, Bay Area quintet Testament has consistently delivered unadulterated, unbridled, and unbreakable metal in its purest form without compromise or any signs of slowing down. Over the course of seminal releases ranging from The Legacy and Practice What You Preach to The Gathering and The Formation Of Damnation, which won “Best Album” at Metal Hammer’s 2008 Golden Gods Awards, the group’s sales exceeded 14 million worldwide with 2 million in the U.S. alone.

Scotland’s party machine Alestorm have evolved into an international sensation! Conquering album charts and festival stages throughout the world, with their infectious brand of ‘Pirate Metal’ and their dashing good looks. Somehow they’ve managed to convince hundreds of thousands of people around the globe that it’s cool to wear a pirate hat and sing stupid songs about getting drunk and stealing ships. So prepare your spleens, because Alestorm are coming to Australia exclusively for Download to kick ass and chew gum!

Seminal English outfit Carcass have released several classic albums over the years and changed the trajectory of extreme metal with each consecutive release. Whether it was inventing gore-grind (Reek of Putrefaction & Symphonies of Sickness) or creating the template for melodic death metal (Heartwork), Carcass has always made records by which bars were set and rules were broken. Upon their untimely demise in 1996, fans mourned the loss of this seminal act and lived in hope that the group would one day be exhumed from their premature grave. After an 18-year hiatus, Carcass has been fully reanimated since 2013, catch them at Download 2020!

Formed in 1994, another Download exclusive, Italian alt metal superstars Lacuna Coil’s spirited and lauded live performances have also earned them a solid reputation for a band that not only delivers night in/night out, but also a band whose stage performance reverberates long after the show is over. Indeed, Lacuna Coil’s heartfelt, heavy, melodic, and rhythmic metal—a hybrid of gothic, groove, and alternative—has created a rabid worldwide following.
Born and bred in Canberra,
Hands Like Houses have achieved a lot in their decade together, spending their time thrilling crowds playing packed arenas and festival stages around the world. Over 150k record sales worldwide, multiple headline tours of the USA and UK, and three sold out back-to-back headline tours across Australia in just two years. Their newest release –Anon. snatching even more praise with their first top 5 Aria charting album with the album swooping in at #4.

Byron Bay’s In Hearts Wake have been changing minds and lives since 2012. With three top five records under their belts and over 100,000 records sold worldwide, they are one of melodic Metalcore’s leading lights. They have looped the planet multiple times in the name of spreading their ecological, humanitarian and urgent environmental message. Their latest album Ark inspires global change like never before and musically it pays homage to the past as much as it signals a bright new future for conscious heavy music.

The HU is a band from Mongolia that blend hard rock and traditional Mongolian throat singing. Their first two videos Yuve Yuve Yu and Wolf Totem immediately went viral garnering the band over 30 million views. The explosive reaction to The HU resulted in enthusiastic coverage from media all over the world. Together they create rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throat singing built around the pillars of heavy rock: distorted guitars, bombastic drums, and aggressive rhythms.

Fifteen years after releasing their first EP, Grammy-nominated exploratory rock band Baroness spill triumphantly past genre barriers, their anthemic alt-metal hooks ricocheting between the circuitous twists of prog and jazz, the moody swirls of space-rock and noise, and the hypnotic pulses of trip-hop and 20th Century minimalism.

Melbourne’s extreme prog metallers Ne Obliviscaris blend epic and intense progressive metal with thundering drums, devastating guitar riffs, shrieking violin and gorgeous string sections, soaring clean vocals and brutal growls! No strangers to festivals, they have graced the stages of some of Europe’s heaviest and we welcome them to Download 2020.

One of the most revered punk bands Australia has ever produced, Bodyjar have come a long way since forming in the Melbourne suburbs over 20 years ago. Graduating from pub stages during the worldwide ’90s punk boom, to stages of festivals like The Big Day Out, with hit singles like Not The Same and Fall To The Ground, Bodyjar went on to tour the globe several times over with many of the era’s most respected acts! After calling it a day in 2005, they reunited in 2013 and have continued to tour and release new music.

New Years Day, the U.S. metal five-piece lead by powerhouse Ash Costello, made their debut Aussie appearance hitting Download’s Avalanche Stage in Melbourne and Sydney last March, immediately setting about performing a killer set and they are back for more! Earlier this year they unleashed their fourth and current studio album, Unbreakable “the poppiest metal album, or the most metal pop album”, see it live in all its pop-metal glory at Download 2020.

Melbourne’s hardcore punk outfit Clowns have never been ones to conform. The five-piece started life in 2010 as a more-or-less straightforward hardcore punk act, but over the course of their first three albums – 2013’s I’m Not Right, 2015’s Bad Blood and 2017’s Lucid Again – were steadily evolving and mutating their sound in whatever direction they felt like. 2019 has seen the band release their fourth studio offering Nature/Nurture, which caught the ears of punk heavyweight Fat Wreck Chords, making them the second Australian band ever to join the esteemed label.

UK based five-piece Venom Prison first pummeled the jugular of the underground with a self-released demo Defy the Tyrant in 2015. Their debut LP Animus propelled the death metal band into the spotlight earning them the prestigious Metal Hammer Golden Gods award for best new band in 2017. What you might mistake for the light at the end of the tunnel is just as likely to be their view of watching the world burn.

SKYND peel back the layers behind the earthly façade we show to the world and uncover what lurks beneath in all of its painful glory. The industrialized gothic and true crime-inspired electronic duo -Skynd, (lead vocals) and Father, (producer, multi-instrumentalist) reach into the deepest, darkest depths of your soul, are you ready for this Download performance?
Melbourne metalcore outfit
Thornhill are the future of heavy music in Australia. Their thunderous, melodic alternative metalcore is on the rise in heavy music fans conscious thanks to their stunning EP Butterfly, the refreshingly colourful debut LP The Dark Pool (Oct 2019) and some solid touring with heavyweights like Northlane, Architects, Parkway Drive and more.

In their 10th year since conception, Disentomb  now stands as one of the most unique and commanding bands in modern metal. The pursuit of unrelentingly brutal death has lead the Brisbane based act down a dark and twisted path and into a unique sound that is completely unlike their rudimentary beginnings, combining lacerating energy with a bleak dissonance that embodies pure sonic malice.

One of Australia’s hottest prospects, Sydney’s Stand Atlantic have played 150+ shows in the last 12 months. The pop-punk meets alternative rockers have gone strength-to-strength since the release of their debut album Skinny Dipping. They have toured relentlessly across the globe and racked up over 30,000,000 streams online, secured BBC Radio 1 / Sirius XM / AppleBeats1 airplay and gained a triple J Feature Album and are universally tipped to be the next household name in rock music.

Sydney’s Plini, composes, plays guitar, records, produces and manages his unique brand of instrumental progressive rock all from a bedroom studio. He was named “Best Prog Guitarist in the world right now” by Music Radar, and legendary guitarist Steve Vai described his critically-acclaimed debut album “Handmade Cities” as “one of the finest, forward-thinking, melodic, rhythmically and harmonically deep, evolution of rock/metal instrumental guitar records I have ever heard.”

Since Sydney’s RedHook officially spawned in 2018, the rise of the self-styled heavy pop mutants has been described as nothing short of meteoric. They create unique and emotional alternative music that fuses multiple genres including rock, rap, metalcore, pop and electronica, with lyrics that aim to inspire listeners to keep fighting against the forces of darkness – both in the real world and inside their own heads.

Dystopia in the eyes of New Wave Hardcore band Dregg means a world where humans turn into machines and machines turn into humans. The five-piece from Melbourne often don face masks, war paints, and outlandish outfits to put on a lively show that melds hardcore, nu-metal, and hip hop. Their defined artistic vision aims at breaking down and analyzing every aspect of life — socially, politically, spiritually, and mentally – they implore you to channel your inner weirdo!

MR BIG STUFF DROPS EXCITING SINGLE & VIDEO ‘I NEED SPACE’ FEAT. STRANGE TALK

MR BIG STUFF DROPS EXCITING SINGLE & VIDEO ‘I NEED SPACE’ FEAT. STRANGE TALK

ANNOUNCES DEBUT SINGLE & VIDEO
I NEED SPACE 
FEAT. STRANGE TALK


Exciting newcomer Mr Big Stuff has today announced his brilliant, hooky debut single I Need Space, featuring synthpop auteurs Strange Talk, out November 1.  Mr Big Stuff, otherwise known as Gregory Truman, has also announced a quirky and fun video clip to accompany the track, created in collaboration with Lionel Towers (Gypsy & The Cat) and Andrew Mortlock (Cookin’ on 3 Burners, The Griswolds).  I Need Space is a witty, poppy introduction to this up and coming Australian hip hop artist.

I Need Space is a great example of a satisfying and exciting cross-section of pop and hiphop, and it’s impressive to see an artist debut with such a strong, established sound and aesthetic.  Cool and collected, Mr Big Stuff’s brilliant lyricism floats cleverly atop a bed of rolling percussion and smooth synths.  Strange Talk is the perfect artist to join in on I Need Space, and as the track leans into the chorus, you’ll be hard-pressed to get the vocal hook out of your head. I Need Space was inspired by a break up close to my family.  I was at the studio writing and I got a call from one of the people involved in the breakup.  We got talking and as I was holding back tears, they said to me I just need my space,” explains Mr Big Stuff, “I was in a bit of a sad mood, not knowing what to do – so I walked back into the studio, and 5 minutes later I Need Space was born.”

The clip for I Need Space travels far and wide, as the scene jumps from a surrealist library, to a vast desert landscape, to apocalyptic carpark, to an infinite galaxy.  The colourful, psychedelic clip is a feast for the eyes, and, juxtaposed against the melancholy theme of the lyrics, presents a vibrant reflection of a relationship that has just ended.  It’s fun, it’s strange, and it’s a must-watch, as Mr Big Space explains, Originally we had a space theme idea and then we kind of went for an idea of space overall – as in, the landscape of space and being transported to different worlds.  I had just gotten back from overseas when the idea for the clip was formed,  and within a week we had set up filming locations, props, outfits, etc.  It was a lot of work by the whole team and I’m very grateful to quality of the content that was produced.”

Mr Big Stuff is a new face on the scene, but it won’t stay that way for long, as an EP is already in the works for the charming hip hop artist.  Music and dance has been a passion for Mr Big Stuff since childhood, as he sweetly enthuses, “I love to live life to the fullest.  I was in a bad state, mentally and health-wise, for a while there, but now I have a new zest on life.  I used to hide away because of my size, but now I embrace it! I got into making music through dancing, and the love and feeling that music gave me.  I’m filled with joy to be able to finally come out from the shadows and show the world what has always been inside of me.”

 

 

 

Keep up with Mr Big Stuff

RUFUS WAINWRIGHT SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘TROUBLE IN PARADISE’

RUFUS WAINWRIGHT SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘TROUBLE IN PARADISE’

RUFUS WAINWRIGHT 

SHARES NEW SINGLE

TROUBLE IN PARADISE


Rufus Wainwright makes a most welcome return with the smart classic pop of brand new single Trouble In Paradise.

The song is full of firsts: his first with new producer Mitchell Froom on his new label BMG and his first new pop music since his 2012 Out of the Game album produced by Mark Ronson.

Not that Rufus has been idle these last 7 years, in fact he’s never been busier. He’s been travelling the globe touring, writing and recording operas and an elegant disc full of Shakespeare Sonnets. Last Easter he celebrated the 20th anniversary of his debut album with a sold out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall of biblical proportions that also featured most of his 2nd acclaimed record ‘Poses’. Similar US and European dates were warmly received.

That precocious debut was recorded in LA as has his forthcoming, eagerly anticipated new album. “As soon as I got to LA I realised I wanted to make another of those good, old-fashioned records,” Rufus says.

Meeting producer Mitchell Froom cemented the idea and the two set about creating what promises to be a highlight in a career full of them.

Trouble In Paradise is about the fashion world but also applies to the state of the planet. As for the music, Rufus says it has “a sense of sophistication and an animalistic instinct.”

He adds: “After the opera world and natural aging, I can now sing at the full power of my abilities, and this record really shows that off.”

From a man who regularly makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up with the sheer range and power of his voice, that’s one scary thought.  You have been warned!

 

Trouble In Paradise is out now.

Bring Me The Horizon Release Official Video For ‘in the dark’ .

BRING ME THE HORIZON

RELEASE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR

in the dark STARRING ACADEMY AWARD WINNER

FOREST WHITAKER


 

Multi-platinum, Grammy nominated, quintet Bring Me The Horizon have released the official video for single in the dark today.

 

Watch the video for in the dark here:

 

 

Written, directed and edited by the band’s frontman Oliver Sykes, the visual stars Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor Forest Whitaker and sees him undergo Matrix-like brain mapping.

Co-directed and produced by videographer Brian Cox, Oli comments, “’in the dark’ is my first ‘official’ directing effort. We were in the midst of planning to shoot the video with a director in LA, 3 days before the shoot I got a call from Forest saying he was in London and available, so ignoring everyone who said it was impossible to make it happen in time, I called our videographer Brian and asked him if he wanted to help me direct a video. 2 days later we were shooting in London! It was a crazy, emotional few days and I was very lucky to bag an insanely talented crew to assist me.”

The band is currently touring in support of their number one album, amo (RCA), which exploded on both sides of the pond. Its lead track, mantra, earned the band its first-ever Grammy nomination for “Best Rock Song.” Fans can catch Bring Me The Horizon on their headlining “Threesome Tour” before it wraps on October 29 in Miami, FL.

Bring Me The Horizon also have new single Ludens coming, which will be the feature track for Timefall, an album of new music inspired and written for the highly anticipated Kojima Productions video game “Death Stranding”, available on Playstation 4. The single is set for release on November 6.

A powerful and anthemic musical experience delivered with awe inspiring precision, American rock stalwarts X Ambassadors celebrate the release of their much awaited second studio album Orion by locking in four huge dates in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Coming nearly five years after the success of their much-loved debut album VHS, this latest LP demonstrates a band at the peak of their powers – something that audiences on this side of the world will behold for the first time as the band play their debut Antipodean shows in February 2020.

Formed by brothers Sam and Casey Harris in 2009, X Ambassadors have proved a durable and exciting force in American music over the last decade.

They’ve seen three of their tunes hit the US top 20 through high-profile placements in commercials (‘Renegades, which featured in the 2015 Jeep Renegade campaign), films (2016’s ‘Sucker for Pain’ from Suicide Squad) and trailers (‘Unsteady’ from the 2016 drama Me Before You).

Sam has also proven to be something of a gun for hire as a songwriter, working recently as the co-writer on seven tracks from For the Throne: Music Inspired by the HBO Series Game of Thrones, as well as spending time in the studio with red-hot force of nature Lizzo.

It comes as no surprise then, that X Ambassadors’ tracks are typically perfectly constructed pieces of emotional dynamite. Singles such as ‘Jungle, ‘Unsteady’ and this years’ ‘Boom’ utilise the full force of Sam’s vocal talents while leaning heavily on the keyboard mastery of his brother Casey.

In fact, one of the most affecting moments of an X Ambassadors live show arrives when Casey (blind from birth) takes centre stage and delivers an emotive solo interlude. A stark contrast to the often crunching beats usually delivered by the three-piece, it goes a long way to demonstrating the versatile nature of their music.

You work for the fans. That’s it,” Harris has said. “Obviously the music has to come from a personal place, but at the end of the day, these fans are the ones that are doing everything for you.”

For the first time in February 2020 at these huge shows, fans from Australia and New Zealand will be given the opportunity to watch on as X Ambassadors deliver a high energy experience filled with soaring vocals and perfectly structured instrumentation.

Glass Tides have just released their latest jaw-dropping single “Waste”.

Adelaide metalcore five-piece Glass Tides  have just released their latest jaw-dropping single “Waste”.  Inspired by the sounds of Bring Me The Horizon and The Used, the Careening instrumentals in “Waste” produce brooding undertones to the explosive angst-filled anthem that slices through the listlessness of life.


 

 

Alongside “Crawling their first single of 2019 released in August, which received triple j and Unearthed radio play and acclaim from media and fans alike – “Waste” serves as the perfect taster ahead of the release of the band’s full-length album.. set for release on 17th January 2020.

Glass Tides are a five-piece pop punk/rock group from Adelaide, Australia. They have wasted no time establishing themselves nationwide since their formation in 2017, supporting artists such as Thrice, Circa Survive, Spiderbait, Body Jar, Young Lions & plenty more.

Having drawn comparisons to Bring Me The Horizon, The Used and Emarosa, the band’s every track is heavy with guitar, passionate, anthemic vocals and massive drums.

The group’s unique mix of heavy/emo music accompanied by the passionate and raw vocals has ignited excitement around the world upon there establishment in late 2017. Along the way, the group has released two EPs, Thoughts (2017) & My Descend (2018).

 

Praise for Glass Tides:

​”The fire and ice in this track is nicely balanced. You’ll have your arms splayed out and ready to soar with it.” ​Dave Ruby Howe​, ​Triple J

ANNOUNCE INDEFINITE HIATUS

TOURING NATIONALLY | OCTOBER 2019


A message from City Calm Down:

 

To our fans, family, friends and everybody who has worked with and supported us over the past 12 years: it is with a mixture of sadness and pride that we announce that our current Television tour will be the last tour we perform before going on indefinite hiatus.

 

The past 12 years and, in particular, the past five, have been immensely fulfilling and we are incredibly grateful to everyone that has played a small or large role in our journey. With your support, the four of us have been able to live our childhood dreams and that is an incredible gift that you have given us.

 

Bands are fragile things that require a lot of time, energy and sacrifice to maintain, and we have put our hearts and souls into this project over the last 12 years. Our goals for the future, both as individuals and a group, have guided us in our decision to bring this chapter of our lives to a close. This decision has not been made lightly but it is a decision that the four of us have made together and in friendship. It is also a decision that, we feel, allows us to celebrate the work we have made together and share that celebration with you.

 

If you’re making it along to one of our upcoming shows, we can’t wait to share our music with you one last time.

 

With love,

Jack, Sam, Jeremy and Lee

SHELLEY SEGAL SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘NO’ AHEAD OF NEW EP ‘HOLY’ ✨

SHELLEY SEGAL SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘NO’ AHEAD OF NEW EP ‘HOLY’ ✨

SHELLEY SEGAL

SHARES NEW SINGLE NO

AHEAD OF NEW EP HOLY


LA-based songwriter Shelley Segal has today announced her latest single No, a modern, bold and assertive track that describes the difficulty many women face when turning down sexual advances, out today, October 4.  Shelley has also announced her masterful new EP Holy, a masterclass in intimate lyricism and exciting, innovative Americana, set for release on November 1.  The Australian musician has been living and working in Los Angeles for three years, writing and recording Holy in the US while touring and collaborating on a host of noteworthy artistic projects.

No has a sentiment that will ring true for many women who have found themselves in a situation where it was almost impossible to say the word.  Driving guitars and textured percussion propel the track forward with serious attitude, while Shelley’s honeyed vocals carve a stunning melody on top.  Speaking on the inspiration behind this important track, Shelley explains, No is a song about consent and the subtleties surrounding it.  It describes three different scenarios in which the protagonist finds it difficult to say no to sexual advances.  I wrote the song because even though it’s 2019 and so many women feel comfortable asserting themselves and speaking up for themselves, and even though there has been so much public discourse and progress on these issues, there are still scenarios where it feels hard to say ‘no’.  You can find yourself in a situation that you don’t want to be in and yet be unable to express that.  It’s not always easy in the moment to process the potential consequences that may come from your reaction.  Like the examples in the song for instance, in a work environment, in the street with a stranger.  Saying ‘no’ can create adverse outcomes like risking your job, or your safety.  This discussion around consent is not as straightforward as maybe we would like it to be and I wanted to reflect on those nuances.”

No is the first taste of Shelley Segal’s glorious new EP Holy.  This is an artist who has truly found her feet; Holy Man shines with energetic roots, rock riffs, skilled arrangement and Shelley’s undeniable lyrics and beautiful vocal performance.  San Antonio tugs at the heartstrings, a simple acoustic track with a deeply affecting message, while Holy is steeped in attitude and power, as Shelley sings, “I believe my body is beautiful, and it belongs to me.”  The EP was recorded in Brooklyn at Atomic Sound Studios with Dakota Bowman and Merle Chornuk (Tandy, Ryan Adams), it was produced and co-written (3 songs) with New York producer, guitarist and film composer Askold Buk and was mastered by Ted Jensen (Norah Jones, Dave Matthews).  Speaking on the making of the release, Shelley enthuses, “I’ve been working on the songs for this record for over the last three years – since 2016, the year I moved to the US.  I’ve called the ep ‘HOLY‘  which felt like a really powerful statement.  In the Jewish tradition I grew up in, what was holy was dictated to me.  Which words, items and actions and even which people were holy was dictated to me.  To elevate my life, my songs, my experiences and my voice (which was not allowed to be heard unaccompanied in my synagogue), to call them holy is incredibly empowering.  It’s a challenge to those who want to use concepts of holiness and the sacred to create hierarchies, often placing themselves at the top.  I hope it will inspire people to decide for themselves what is holy and sacred to them.”

Shelley has been living and working in the US since 2016, and in between touring the country and writing music for her own project, Shelley has done everything from writing for musicals, for Estonian pop star ELYSA, and Dutch artist Glennis Grace, among others.  She has also worked tirelessly for charity group One Law For All, writing two songs for the organisation and reciving the CEMB Award (Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain) for her contributions.  Always busy with multiple thought-provoking projects on the go at once, Shelley is currently working on the music for a documentary (entitled Transmission Love) about a young transgender girl growing up in LA, as well as a conservation-themed EP with a science educator and biologist about the Puget Sound Watershed in Washington State.

                                       No is out today, October 4. Holy is out November 1.

                                                         Praise for Shelley Segal

An Australian singer/songwriter now living in California, Segal sings with pain and purpose. Her music builds out of a woman and her guitar, incorporating additional instrumentation as needed but consistently coming from a familiar place – that heartfelt home, be it physical or musical. http://atwoodmagazine.com/sshr-shelley-segal-here/

PARKER ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO ‘CAN’T KEEP WAITING’

PARKER ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO ‘CAN’T KEEP WAITING’

ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO
CAN’T KEEP WAITING’

+ ARTIST RESIDENCY & EXHIBITION ‘YOU, ME AND THAT OTHER THING’ AT SAWTOOTH ARI


 

Gifted visual artist, songwriter and musician PARKER has today announced her iridescent new single Can’t Keep Waiting, a once-in-a-lifetime song, one that soundtracks a grand leap into the unknown and away from everything comfortable and safe, set for release today, October 4.  PARKER has also announced a cinematic video clip to accompany the track, made in collaboration with director and technology artist Jaymis Loveday (Emma Louise, Ball Park Music) and sculptor Briony Law.  PARKER has just completed an artist residency at Sawtooth ARI gallery alongside drawer and sculptor Jo Lane, in order to prepare their upcoming exhibition You, Me and that Other Thing, an exploration into human connection.  The official opening of You, Me and that Other Thing will take place today, Friday October 4 from 6PM at Sawtooth ARI in Tasmania (running for one month), and will include a screening of the Can’t Keep Waiting video clip.

Can’t Keep Waiting is transcendental, meditative; at times it feels almost ambient, with heavy, industrial percussion and repetitive synth patterns.  But one thing that pulls the track into a truly close, emotive space is PARKER’s soft, intimate yet commanding voice.  Evocative of Massive Attack and the lyrical and vocal prowess of Lana Del ReyCan’t Keep Waiting is epic and overflows with the power of primal human emotion. Can’t Keep Waiting is about gathering the courage to be honest with myself.  It’s about letting go of all that is safe and familiar in life in order to evolve and grow,” explains Parker. “I believe it’s in the moments when we feel completely lost that we find the opportunity to discover something new about ourselves.  Nothing is permanent, everything can change.  Each moment we have the ability to create ourselves anew.”

Already receiving multiple accolades, including Best Concept at Clipped Music Video Festival in Sydney, Best Music Video at the Los Angeles Film AwardsNew York Film Awards and Top Shorts, not to mention selection for screening at the Austria International Film Festivalthe clip for Can’t Keep Waiting is a triumph of a true marriage between sound, visual art, and cinema.  Made by PARKER, in collaboration with Jaymis Loveday and Briony Law, the clip sees clay mounds, turning gracefully to human forms, dissolving in a deep-seascape with very little light from above.  PARKER displays a clear and intricate understanding of her art as she describes the video, “The clip concept for this song was born out of a video installation work I made called Dissolving Self.  Dissolving Self was a projection installation of a video art work.  The video was a of a clay cast of my face dissolving in water set on a loop that made it look like it was falling apart and then rebuilding.  I showed the work to my friend Jaymis Loveday and he suggested we make an extension of the work by creating full body casts and miniature models using a larger tank and cinematography techniques in the filming. Brisbane based sculptor Briony Law worked closely with me on the sculpting of the plaster landscapes and made all of the body casts and moulds for us to create the figures.”

You, Me and that Other Thing is the title of the upcoming exhibition that will see PARKER and Jo Lane explore the many facets of human connection.  The exhibition will consist of three parts: historic works where inspiration has already manifested, a transition piece, and the work from an experimental performance of unity. PARKER and Jo Lane have spent the last two weeks in residency at Sawtooth ARI, working side by side in a dedicated studio space where the exhibition will take place. Giving her audience a taste of what to expect from the exhibition, PARKER enthuses,We will create a body of work together around the theme of human connection combining Jo’s skills in drawing and sculpting and mine in sound and video.  The exhibition will combine a collection of our existing works and the new work we make during the residency.”

PARKER is Tash Parker.

Can’t Keep Waiting is set for release today, October 4 and the You, Me and that Other Things exhibition opens today at Sawtooth ARI at 6pm (October 4) and will run for the month of October.

AUSSIE ROCKERS KING COYOTE SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘COCA COLA’ AHEAD OF NEW EP ‘WILD’

AUSSIE ROCKERS KING COYOTE SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘COCA COLA’ AHEAD OF NEW EP ‘WILD’

SHARE NEW SINGLE COCA COLA
AHEAD OF NEW EP WILD – OUT NOVEMBER 1
+ ANNOUNCE SHOWS WITH GRINSPOON AND THIRSTY MERC


Australian rockers King Coyote have today announced their killer new single Coca Cola, an energetic romp inspired by chasing true love, out today. Coca Cola is the first taste of the upcoming King Coyote EP Wild, an absolute masterclass in rock n roll, set for release on November 1.  King Coyote will be heading out on tour throughout October and November, kicking off in Burleigh at Moe’s Desert Clubhouse on Friday October 4, then heading through Kingscliff to support Grinspoon, home to Port Macquarie for a series of shows, wrapping with a summer show on December 28 at Tacking Point Tavern (Port Macquarie) supporting Thirsty Merc.

 

Coca Cola is for fans of true, classic rock n roll; the kind of song that makes you want to slam your empty glass on the bar and head straight to the dancefloor.  Evocative of rock auteurs Queens of the Stone AgeThem Crooked Vultures and JetCoca Cola is overflowing with heady guitar riffs and hooky vocals.  Speaking on the inspiration behind the track, lead vocalist Sunny Rowlands enthuses, “This song is a bit of old time rock n roll, a throwback with our twist.  Coca Cola was inspired by true love, about seeing the red flags and acting on it, before you lose too much time… or whatever the listener thinks it’s about really.  We like both!”

Wild is a diverse collection of rock music by a group of seasoned musicians who know exactly who they are and what King Coyote represents.  From the exhilarating opener Running Wild, to the affecting, emotive closer Diamonds, the EP is true to its namesake in every sense of the word – this music is undeniably Wild.  Produced by Michael Lynch (Jimmy Barnes, Midnight Oil, John Butler Trio), Wild meets the thematic golden trio – sex, drugs and rock n roll – head on, as Sunny says, “We’ve taken a bit of time with this EP, enjoying the road, the band bonding, the late nights, the long nights and all the in-between, helping us get the songs to the point that represents us truthfully as a band.  It’s taken a couple of years, but it was worth the wait for us – it shows how far we’ve come and how far we can go.”

King Coyote are set to perform tracks from Wild live throughout October and November, with a diverse run of headline shows and support slots alongside rock legends Grinspoon,Thirsty Merc and First Beige.  Revving up fans and letting them know what to expect, Sunny enthuses“The shows will be high energy, loud, and in your face – like a shot of coffee with your Red Bull!” 

King Coyote is Sunny Rowlands (vocals), Jimmy True Love (guitar, vocals), Stevie G (drums, vocals), Josh Hall (bass) and Mike Montgomery (guitar).

Star Wars-themed Metal band Galactic Empire coming to Australia in November

Star Wars-themed Metal band Galactic Empire coming to Australia in November

STAR WARS-THEMED METAL BAND’S FIRST EVER TRIP TO AUSTRALIA!

TOUR CO-PRESENTED BY DESTROY ALL LINES & SUPANOVA


Forget Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes, Forget The Max Rebo Band, the best band from a Galaxy Far, Far Away are making their way to Australian shores in November 2019 – GALACTIC EMPIRE!

Co-Presented by Destroy All Lines and premier pop culture convention Supanova, Galactic Empire are bringing their Star Wars Metal extravaganza to both Supanova events in Adelaide and Brisbane and to rock venues throughout Australia in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Gold Coast. From a foreboding rendition of ‘The Imperial March’ to the sweeping guitars of ‘Duel of the Fates’ or soaring melody of ‘Rey’s Theme’, the band’s faithful translations of John Williams’ classic scores has created a new “force” where fandom and music overlap.

Tickets for these interstellar shows go on sale on Wednesday 25th September at 9am Local Time at http://tickets.destroyalllines.com.

Friday 1 November sees Galactic Empire play at Supanova in Adelaide (Adelaide Showground), with a special appearance on Saturday 2 November at Supanova as well. Sunday 3 November then takes them to 170 Russell in Melbourne, Tuesday 5 November at The Basement in Canberra, Thursday 7 November at Factory Theatre in Sydney, then Brisbane at Supanova at Brisbane Convention and & Exhibition Centre on Friday 8 November, with another special appearance on Saturday 9 November at Supanova, before the tour finishes on Sunday 10 November at the Coolangatta Hotel on the Gold Coast.

The second phase of the New Order has begun. The most infamous villains in the galaxy have joined forces to perform pieces from the iconic soundtrack of the Star War Films, written by Supreme Composer John Williams. With the resistance weakened, GALACTIC EMPIRE must shred the remaining rebel forces and rock the very foundation of the galaxy. They are some of the most infamous and feared villains in the galaxy – Boba Sett on drums, Bass Commander on bass, Dark Vader on lead guitar, Kyle Ren on guitar and Red Guard on guitar.

This year’s Supanova events are already bursting at the seams with their biggest events and drawcards on the lineup to see and meet, with icons such as John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Grease, Face/Off, The Punisher), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, Star Trek: Discovery, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance), Billy Zane (The Phantom), and Julie Benz (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dexter), amongst so many more – and by buying your Galactic Empire tickets you’ll be able to enjoy a complimentary weekend of Supanova fun in Adelaide and Friday admission from 1pm in Brisbane with an inexpensive option to upgrade to the full three-day weekend!
