Tony Joe White ist verstorben.
Eine der News die man eher ungern verschickt.

Statement from Yep Roc (Text below)

It is with deep respect and admiration that we announce the passing of legendary singer-songwriter Tony Joe White, he was 75. It was confirmed today by his family.
With a prolific recording and performing career spanning more than 50 years, his songs traversed many genres, including blues, rock, country, R&B, and Americana, which is an incredible testament to his versatility as well as to his roots.
A one-of-a-kind songwriter, his songs were covered by Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Joe Cocker, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Ray Charles, and countless others.
Glenn Dicker, co-founder of Yep Roc Records said, “Tony Joe White was a true American original. In everything he did he did it with his own unique voice. There was a gentle ease and flow that vibrated from the man. Always a positive vibe. We have been very fortunate to have been able to work with Tony Joe over these past few albums and years. We’re grateful for all the wonderful music...and the hangs. We love you Tony Joe!”
His newest album, Bad Mouthin’, was released in September 2018, and features a blend of classics as well as five White originals, including two of the first songs he wrote—just before penning his breakthrough hits “Polk Salad Annie” and “A Rainy Night in Georgia” in 1967.
“If there’s anything like a line connecting everything that I’ve done, I would say it’s realness,” says White. “Even my songs that are sweet little love ballads —those are all real, inspired by real love and real life. Being real, being focused on what’s really going on around you, is something I learned early in my life.”

AFI - Veröffentlichen Neue Single "Get Dark" / Neue EP "The Missing Man" erscheint am 07.12. auf EX NOCTEM NACIMUR

Die amerikanische Rockinstitution AFI veröffentlicht heute überraschend die brandneue Single "Get Dark" als Vorboten ihrer EP "The Missing Man".

Get Dark Stream

The Missing Man-Preorder

AFI-Sänger Davey Havok zu "Get Dark":
“From the initial performance and recording, it had a driving sense of forward movement and penetrating connection. The song’s themes of deification and deference, self-loathing and vanity, captivation and release, damage and healing, are posed in a subtle invitation to those inherently compelled to accept.”

AFI-Gitarrist Jade Puget zu "Get Dark":
“I was aiming for something a little raw for ‘Get Dark.’ In fact, I used most of the vocal takes from the very first time Davey sang it, as well as some of my guitar parts from when we were writing it. The song is built on the sparseness and simplicity of the verse drum groove and guitar riff that opens up into this big anthemic chorus. For the EP, the same idea of a certain rawness was really important to the overall vibe. I feel like it’s easy to turn out a slick, polished set of songs, but to walk that fine line between studio creation and live sound can be difficult. It’s been an intense labor of love and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

Die EP "The Missing Man" wird am 07.12. auf dem bandeigenen Label EX NOCTEM NACIMUR erscheinen und wurde vom AFI-Gitarristen Jade Puget produziert und gemixt.

Havok zur EP:
“Thanks to the unexpected continuation of The Blood Tour, we found ourselves inspired to begin writing. It was during this process that The Missing Man was found.”

Weitere Infos:
The Missing Man follows last year’s AFI (The Blood Album), which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative and Hard Rock Albums Charts and No. 5 on The Billboard 200. It was the band’s second consecutive Top 10 Billboard debut following 2013’s Burials.
Alternative Press and Q gave AFI (The Blood Album) 4 stars each, AV Club said it sounded like the band are “as fired up now as they were 25 years ago,” People magazine made it a Pick of the Week, Kerrang called it a “serious contender” for the Best Albums of 2017 list, The 405 praised it as “their strongest album in a decade” and ABC News gave it 3.5 stars and described it as “a dynamic record that should please both old and new fans of the band.”
Since the release of 1995’s debut album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI has written and recorded five top ten hit singles (“Miss Murder,” “Medicate,” “Love Like Winter,” “Silver and Gold,” “Girl’s Not Grey”), hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 (with the stunning Decemberunderground), garnered worldwide critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal global following whose members number in the millions.

Danny Kiranos, besser bekannt als Amigo The Devil, ist ein seltenes Exemplar seiner Zunft: Er schreibt und singt über Massenmörder, Pyromanen, Selbstmörder oder Lügner und seine eigenen Weltuntergangsfantasien. Damit hat der 30-Jährige aus Florida nicht nur Folk - oder Country-Puristen und Rock-/Heavy Metal-Fans gleichermaßen herausgefordert, sondern sich in den USA mit seinem morbiden, seltsam romantischen ?Monster Folk“ eine treue Fangemeinde erspielt. Sollte man jemals in einen prall gefüllten Konzertsaal kommen, in dem eine gut angetrunkene Menge ?I hope your husband dies“ singt, befindet man sich wahrscheinlich in einem Konzert von Amigo The Devil. Die LA Weekly schrieb einmal treffend. ?Rufen sie sich den schwärzesten Johnny Cash ins Gedächtnis und dazu Father John Misty, während er Gräber auf dem Hollywood Forever Cemetery exhumiert.“
Nur mit seiner Stimme und Banjo oder Akustikgitarre bewaffnet, steht er auf der Bühne und ist damit so ganz anders als das, was man sonst von Singer/Songwriter- oder Folk-Shows gewohnt ist. Voll makabrer Mitsing-Teile, einer guten Portion Humor und Songs, die tief in der Tradition des gesungenen Geschichtenerzählens verwurzelt sind, macht er seine grimmigen Themen für Fans aller Genres zugänglich. ?Ich bin es satt zu sehen, dass die Leute das, was sie fühlen, verkomplizieren oder, schlimmer noch, ignorieren", sagt Danny/Amigo, befragt nach dem Hauptthema seines neuen Albums, das den ironischen Titel ?Everything Is Fine“ trägt. Es wurde von Ross Robinson (Korn, Glassjaw, At The Drive In) produziert, Schlagzeuger Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Prophets Of Rage) ist Gastmusiker. Aufgenommen wurde es in den Valentine Studios in LA, einer Zeitkapsel, die seit den 70er Jahren unberührt blieb und über das originale Equipment und eine authentische Atmosphäre verfügt. Alles wurde live und direkt auf Tape aufgenommen, gemixt und gemastert,

ARLINGTON - Debütalbum "A Walk Trough Jackson County" erscheint heute auf Rise Records

Das Debütalbum “A Walk Trough Jackson County“ von den Indie-Rock-Newcomern ARLINGTON erscheint heute auf Rise Records. Fans von The Strokes, Led Zeppelin, Jack White und den Alabama Shakes, können sicher auch für die drei Jungs aus Kalifornien begeistern.

Vor Kurzem veröffentlichten ARLINGTON auch das Musikvideo zu ihrem Song “Hollow Moon“.

ARLINGTON Hollow Moon (Video)

Sänger/Gitarrist Tyler Benko erklärt:
"The song came out of me wanting to write this really punchy, early Arctic Monkeys-style pop song with fast-paced lyrics that told a story. Lyrically, it's loosely about a single mother who considers prostitution as a means to support her family. We wanted the punchy and retro feel to be juxtaposed with the darker lyrical content. For us, the song feels important because of that juxtaposition. The entire album plays on the odd pairing of upbeat rock with darker lyrical and visual themes and 'Hollow Moon' is one of the best examples of that. The song is a really good representation of our band and our album as a whole."

ARLINGTON sind:
Tyler Benko — Vocals/Guitar
Channing Peake — Bass/Vocals
Grant Whitson — Drums

Weitere Infos:
Arlington will embark on a fall tour with Hands Like Houses and Emarosa in November. All tour dates are below.

If you dig The Strokes and Led Zeppelin as much as you do Jack White and Alabama Shakes, then you'll find yourself magnetically drawn to Arlington. The band effortlessly meshes modern and classic sounds — all the while exploring darker lyrical themes. The result is an alt rock sound wholly its own.

"The album is a representation of the way in which we take our classic influences in a new direction by perverting and twisting them in our own little way," Arlington stated.

The members of the band have known one another since they were 15. In fact, vocalist/guitarist Tyler Benko and bassist/vocalist Channing Peake were in a different band together, with drummer Grant Whitson serving as their tour manager for a stint on Warped Tour. When that previous band split, Benko and Peake partnered with Whitson to form Arlington.

ASHLAND - EP auf Rise Records / 3-Song EP - Musikvideo

ASHLAND sind das neuste Signing auf Rise Records!

Auf der neuen 3 Song "Misc" EP präsentiert das Duo um Sängerin Asia Marie aus St.Louis, 3 emotionale, eingängige Dream-Pop/Rock Nummern.

Zu dem Release hat die Band ein besonderes Video konzipiert, in dem gleich alle 3 Songs in einem knapp 10 Minuten langen Kurzfilm vorgestellt werden:

3-Song - "Misc" EP - Musikvideo

ASHLAND zu "Misc":
"Instead of doing individual music videos, we decided to bring misc to life by creating an entire world around it," the band explained. "The videos tell the story of a woman trying to escape from the hold of an authoritarian government that sees her strength and wisdom as a threat. The songs were inspired by real life struggles that many of us face every day such as depression, anxiety, abuse, and discrimination. So it was important that the videos conveyed a message of courage and hope within a creative visual element.“

Tracklist "Misc":
"Always Something"
"No Trouble"
"When You Come Around"

ASHLAND sind:
Asia Marie

CASEY - Neues Video für "The Funeral" / Im November auf der Impericon "Never Say Die"-Tour

Im November geht die Post-Hardcore Band CASEY zusammen mit Bands wie BEING AS AN OCEAN und NORTHLANE auf die Impericon "Never Say Die"-Tour. Passend dazu veröffentlichen die Waliser das Musikvideo zu "The Funeral" aus ihrem aktuellen Album "Where I Go When I Am Sleeping", das in Frühjahr auf Hassle Records erschien.

Musikvideo The Funeral

Sänger Tom Weaver zum Video:
"We are once again incredibly please to be collaborating with our longstanding creative director and friend, Martyna Wisniewska, and take great pride and pleasure in presenting to you the cinematic new video for our latest single, The Funeral."

Die Tourdaten:
02.11.18 Wiesbaden – Schlachthof
09.11.18 Hamburg – Gruenspan
10.11.18 Berlin - SO36
15.11.18 München – Backstage
23.11.18 Köln – Essigfabrik
24.11.18 Dresden – Eventwerk

Weitere Infos:
Sharing his thoughts on the upcoming tour, Weaver explains:

"Years ago, I remember attending the Never Say Die tour, it gave me the chance to see bands like Parkway Drive for the first time, as well as cult favourites like War From A Harlots Mouth. Thinking back, the scale of that tour was always something I'd dreamed of achieving for myself, and now that I have, it's no less surreal than I pictured it would be. We're honoured to be appearing across Europe as part of this year’s production, and can't wait to spend a long November surrounded by friends, new and old"
Casey’s affecting latest album ‘Where I Go When I Am Sleeping’ - produce by Brad Wood (Touché Amoré, Sunny Day Real Estate, Placebo) - was released via Hassle Records in March this year. ‘Where I Go When I Am Sleeping’ is a deeply personal journey through Weaver’s various afflictions.
“I was diagnosed with brittle bones at birth,” he explains, “and when I was 15 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and at 20 I was diagnosed with manic depression. I’ve also had a heart attack and a stroke and I was in this crazy car accident that crushed half my face. They’re big life events, but a lot of the stuff that’s happened to me medically was stuff that I was just living through at the time. Looking back now, though, I realise I could have died four or five times. I’m lucky to be here.”

CASS MCCOMBS – Kommt für zwei Festivals nach Deutschland

Folk-Rocker Cass McCombs kehrt für zwei Festivals nach Deutschland zurück. McCombs wird sowohl auf dem Rolling Stone Weekender, als auch auf dem Rolling Stone Park Festival auftreten und steht dabei auf einer Bühne mit Künstlern wie The Flaming Lips, Kettcar und Element Of Crime.

Die Festival-Daten:
09.11.2018: Rolling Stone Weekender – Weissenhäuser Strand
16.11.2018: Rolling Stone Park

Zur Einstimmung auf seine Shows hat Cass McCombs diesen kurzen Video-Clip hochgeladen:
Tip Of The Sphere-Trailer

Pressestimmen zum Album “Mangy Love“ (2016):
“Lyrically as kaleidoscopic as mid-‘60s Dylan, and packed with fascinating references" 9/10 Uncut
“One of those rare albums that reveals a little more with every play" 4/5 The Observer
“His most succinct and affecting work since the near-perfect Wit’s End" 4/5 MOJO
“McCombs sounds ready to make his commercial breakthrough" 4/5 Evening Standard
“Mangy Love is a terrific, bizarre album made up of familiar parts rearranged into something new" 8/10 The Line of Best Fit
“Long live Cass McCombs" 8/10 Drowned in Sound “The excellent Cass McCombs takes some distance with melancholy and keeps on writing so beautiful songs, carried by his crooning voice ” Vanity Fair (FR)
"a magical, smooth and sensual record" 4.5/5 Les Inrocks (FR)
"majestic songs about ugly themes" 4.5/5 Rolling Stone (DE)
“His most beautiful produced and arranged record” 4/5 Volkskrant (NL)

Weitere Infos:
Over the past decade, Cass McCombs has established himself as one of our premier songwriters. It’s a career that has twisted and turned, from style to subject, both between records and within them. Diverse, cryptic, vital and refreshingly rebellious — just when you think you have him pinned down, you find you’re on the wrong track.
However, Mangy Love, his Anti Records debut, is McCombs at his most blunt: tackling sociopolitical issues through his uniquely cracked lens of lyrical wit and singular insight.
McCombs uses himself as a mirror to misguided and confounding realities, confronting them head-on: “Rancid Girl” reads like a ZZ Top study in Kardashian politics, “Run Sister Run” a mantra for a misogynistic justice system, “Bum Bum Bum” displays a racist, elitist government through the allegory of sadistic dog breeding; the album is sewn together by a common thread of ‘opposition,’ most directly articulated in “Opposite House”, with allusions to mental illness. ‘Laughter Is The Best Medicine’ provides a possible recipe for healing, with the help of an authentic medicine man, the legendary Rev. Goat Carson. The severity of his lyrics is contrasted by the music, which ventures into groovy realms of Philly soul, NorCal psychedelia and New York paranoia punk, articulating the spontaneity and joy of his live show better than ever before.
The record is unquestionably a work of great studio aptitude: a carefully arranged, high-fidelity production by veteran Rob Schnapf and Dan Horne. And as usual, McCombs is joined by many notable members of his eclectic musical tribe, whose names are proudly displayed on the back cover.
Mostly written during a bitter New York City winter and while traveling in Ireland, Mangy Love is Cass at the top of his game, reaching new sonic heights, creatively evolving lyrically, and resulting in his most provocative and complete record yet.

DEER TICK – Dritter Teil der Album-Trilogie erscheint am 01.02.19 auf Partisan Records/ Neue Singles “Hey Yeah“ und “Run Of The Mill“ (George Harrison Cover) / Auf Tour im November

Nach “Deer Tick VOL.1“ und “VOL.2“ aus dem vergangenen Jahr vervollständigen Indie-Rocker DEER TICK ihre Album-Trilogie mit dem Album “Mayonnaise“, das am 01.02.19 auf Partisan Records erscheinen wird.

Die Band über “Mayonnaise“:
“Mayonnaise is a compilation album and companion piece to Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. On Mayonnaise, you will find alternate versions of songs from Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 that we feel have their own merit and we wanted to share them with our fans. To add to this collection, we decided to record some of the cover songs that Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 inspired us to play along the Twice Is Nice Tour. We had such a good time playing these covers live that it felt appropriate to document them here. And, last, if we are going into the studio, why not write a few new songs, record them, give the fans something new and round this whole album out? So, here you go, this is Mayonnaise.“

Gleichzeitig veröffentlichte DEER TICK auch die Songs “Hey Yeah“ und “Run Of The Mill“ (George Harrison Cover), die auf “Mayonnaise“ erscheinen werden.

Los Angeles, CA – Today, The Faim have teamed up with Ones To Watch to premiere the official video for their latest single, “A Million Stars.” Watch it exclusively HERE.
The video was filmed in Berlin, Germany and follows frontman Josh Raven as he reminisces over a past love interest. “A Million Stars” also appears on the band’s debut EP, Summer Is a Curse, which serves as a prelude to their hotly-anticipated first full-length album, slated for release in 2019.
“ ‘A Million Stars’ isn’t only about appreciating the person you’re with or the location you’re in, it’s about being free of the world's distractions and valuing the little details that make a memory unique. I believe we’re defined by our reactions to these moments,” says Josh. “This video represents the double-edged sword of sharing perfect memories, but being thrust into a situation where cherishing them might not ever be possible. It’s a reality anyone faces when you’re away from loved ones, friends or even a familiar place.”
In other news, The Faim is excited to announce their first ever U.S. tour, supporting fellow Aussie natives, Hands Like Houses, in November and December. The group will also share the stage with Emarosa, Devour The Day, and Arlington.

HOT WATER MUSIC spielen jeweils an zwei Terminen in Köln und Berlin ihre Klassiker-Alben "Caution" (2002) und "No Division" (1999) in voller Länge.

HOT WATER MUSIC zum Jubiläum:
"If anyone would have told us in 1994 that we would be a band for 5 years--let alone 25--we would have never believed them. But here we are—approaching 2019--which will mark the 25th Anniversary of Hot Water Music.
Looking back at all we’ve been through over the years (we’re losing track of how many times the band has broken up now), 1 thing is clear: we couldn’t have done it without our family of supporters. We owe it all to you. Seriously.
You only have one 25th anniversary and we’ve decided to celebrate! For the first time ever, we’ll be playing some full album shows. More specifically, we’ll be doing CAUTION in full on these dates:
We’ll also be playing a ton of other songs and are working on some other cool surprises for these shows. Don’t miss these, they’re going to be something special!
Thank you all for 25 years, here's to 25 more!

27.10. 2018: Köln - Palladium

Erst vor Kurzem stellten OF MICE & MEN das Musikvideo zu ihrer aktuellen Single "Instincts" online.
Video zu "Instincts"
Außerdem können sich Fans schon auf neues Material freuen, denn nach der Veröffentlichung ihres letzten Albums "Defy" im Januar stehen OF MICE & MEN mit Produzent Josh Wilbur (Trivium, Lamb of God, Gojira) momentan wieder im Studio.

Weitere Infos:
"We're super pumped to be in the studio with Josh, as we're all big fans of his production and mix discography," said singer and guitarist Aaron Pauley. "When we decided to go heavier with this album, Josh's was one of the first names to pop up — and I can tell you, we're a little over halfway done and it's sounding huge and heavy, heavenly and absolutely demonic — all rolled into one."

ABOUT OF MICE & MEN
Album Defy was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, Skillet, The All-American Rejects) and mixed by Chris Lord Alge (Green Day, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Rise Against).
Of Mice & Men have previously teased the forthcoming album with singles "Defy", "Unbreakable" and "Back to Me." and "Warzone". Those songs have clocked over 7 million Spotify streams and 5 million YouTube/VEVO views in six months. Loudwire described the new material as "soaring," while Billboard, Alternative Press, and more featured the tracks.
Over the course of nearly a decade, Of Mice & Men have steadily risen to the top of the genre's ranks, hitting No. 1 on Billboard's Rock and Independent Charts and No. 4 on the genre-spanning Top 200.

Weitere Infos:
The ten songs of Rhododendron reflect Crane's headspace as a PhD student in Human Geography, roaming through places in time and meditating on the spaces and connections we share with others. The record features production by Crane's longtime friend Chaz Bear of Toro y Moi and Trevor Spencer (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes). Valley Maker released the new album's rambling first single "Light On The Ground" along with a video directed by Joseph Kolean.
On Valley Maker's second full-length album, Rhododendron, songwriter Austin Crane sings about movement - from one kind of belief to another, from place to place, through time. This new record from Crane, a Seattle-based musician and PhD student in Human Geography, reflects both the rootedness and rootlessness that shapes his songwriting on the precipice of his third decade. Like his noted inspirations Jason Molina, Bill Fay, and Gillian Welch before him, he speaks to the strange and transitory ways we mark time through our lives. Years pass and fold in his cosmic American songs.
