Faulkner Reveals Another Taste of REVANCHIST EP

reduced

Alt-Rock/Pop newcomers Faulkner have released yet another track off of their hotly anticipated REVANCHIST EP, this time in the form of a dark, retributive pop song entitled “Waters Are A Rising”.

REVANCHIST, which is French for “someone who advocates revenge,” is an epic collage of interconnected concepts addressing retribution, hustling, and dislocated youth (inspired by frontman Lucas Asher’s time spent as an orphaned teenager on the streets of Brooklyn).

The ultimate goal is to take the reunion tour around the entire globe throughout 2016.

“The United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, and Australia are all part of the plan” says Edsel Dope. “We are all stoked with the insane amount of enthusiasm from fans asking us to bring this line up around the world”….

In addition to the live album, the band plans to film the entire tour, with the intention of creating Dope’s first ever “Live DVD”, and will also include tons of classic backstage footage, unreleased music videos, as well as various, never before seen clips spanning the bands entire career.

Dope has put together some awesome, exclusive merch packages for the campaign, and everyone who participates will be recognized by having their name featured in the liner notes.

The live album will ship in June and is exclusively available at: www.dopereunion.com

The album will not be available on iTunes or in retail stores.

In addition, the campaign features an in depth video interview with Edsel Dope, where he shares his personal feelings on the reunion tour, explains details of the Die MF Die campaign, and also gives an update on Dope’s upcoming 2 part – studio album, Blood Money, which he personally promises will be released later this year via E1 Entertainment.

The Aesthetic Announce Debut EP; Release “Come Home To Me” Single

FullShotaesthetic

Seattle alternative rock newcomers, The Aesthetic have released their debut single “Come Home To Me“. The single comes off the upcoming five track EP, Abandoned Homes set to release March 4th on all digital retailers.

“The song is a finale of a three part story about a girl with mental illnesses fighting to keep her head above water until it becomes too much. This finale is about her significant other wishing he could take back everything and coming to terms with the fact that she’s gone,” commented, guitarist, Michael Neil.

Come Home To Me” is available as “name your price” through the The Aesthetic’s Bandcamp page. Listen to the new track below.

About The Aesthetic:

Forming out of rainy Seattle in January of 2015, The Aesthetic has quickly set their sights on becoming one of the leaders in the newest wave of Pacific Northwest alternative rock bands. When the idea of the band was floating around in the head of vocalist Michael, he went to Zac of Pravitas Studios to ask for his help with writing the instrumentation that was softer than Michael’s old band Projections. The duo forms the backbone of The Aesthetic as it stands today, all the while the search for a live band has continued for this currently online project. The duo is shown at their strongest on their lead single “Come Home To Me,” which is off the forthcoming March 4th debut EP entitled Abandoned Homes. The five track EP is sure to worm itself into listeners’ ears and stay trapped in their head long after the initial listening experience. This along with the band’s hard work will see the band leaping into venues all over the Pacific Northwest in 2016.

Society 1 Releases “I Can’t Feel” Music Video

pic

Society 1 has released a music video for their track “I Can’t Feel” from their album Rise From The Dead. The video was directed and edited by singer Matt Zane of Lord Zane Productions (John 5, Wayne Static, Zakk Wylde, DMC, Orgy). The song was Produced & Mixed by Alex Crescioni at Stygian Sound and Mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering.

When I direct our own videos it’s always a challenge considering I have to jump in front and behind the camera. This video was the most difficult out of all the Society 1 videos because not only did I have to perform but imagine what was going on in the scene. Everything was done on green screen so I was just trying to think about what it was supposed to look like. When I brought it into editing the real challenge began attempting to create what I envisioned. A very cool creative experience. We’re going to concentrate in the realm of complete manifestations of worlds and environments for further video’s to bring the music that much farther. We want every sound and visual to really capture the full spectrum of the viewers imagination.Matt Zane (Society 1)

Me Like Bees Share “Tundraland” Music Video

melikebeespromo

Indie rock quartet Me Like Bees has released an imaginative new music video for their single “Tundraland”, off the upcoming EP  There Will Be Time. The video follows a mischievous young pup (played by the band’s vocalist Luke Scheafer) and his day on the town which results in some potentially serious consequences.

We enjoy humiliating Luke, so we came up with the idea of putting him in a dog costume,” says guitarist Pete Burton (who also plays the story’s villainous dog catcher). “It was a pretty fun shoot! I pulled my hamstring though…it took like two weeks to heal. It was a bad pull!

Me Like Bees worked with award-winning producer John Feldmann (5 Seconds of SummerThe UsedPanic! At The Disco) on There Will Be Time and will release the record on April 8th.

Alorion Releases “Faint” (Linkin Park Cover) Music Video

Southern California based Alternative Rock band Alorion have released a music video for their cover of Linkin Park‘s #1 hit “Faint” which was directed by the band Movements (Fearless Records). Alorion burst on to the scene last Summer with their debut EP Between Calm & Chaos which was recorded by Tom Denney (A Day To Remember) and is available now on iTunes.

We chose to cover Linkin Park because for some of us, it was that first bridge into rock music. We also share a similar dynamic with the two different styles of vocalists in the band. We thought it was a great idea to nod to a band that’s so influential into what we are doing and why we are here, all while creating something new with a song we love.Alorion

Last Bullet Releases “Sin” Music Video

Promo_Crop

Toronto based Hard Rock band Last Bullet have released a music video for their new single “Sin“. Envisioned, edited and co-directed by frontman Bryan Fontez, “Sin” was filmed in the 24th floor attic of Toronto’s historical landmark the Fairmont Royal York Hotel (the 1929 built setting for Saw 5). The celebrity destination hotel, where Jim Morrison scratched his name in the same attic wall where the video was filmed, required the band carry all of their equipment up 700+ flights of stairs. Be sure to check out the Behind The Scenes / Making of video HERE.

In many ways the world has become a dark, cold and detached place to live. Prejudice, ignorance, materialism and a lack of empathy are beginning to divide us and cast a dark cloud over everything. “SIN” was written from a cynical but very realistic point of view, about all that is wrong with modern society. The metaphor and lyrical imagery depict not only a set of misguided values and priorities, but a life that is being manipulated by corporations, products, content and more.Bryan Fontez
