Watch Society 1 talk about the Doors tribute album Indiegogo campaign below:

This album isn’t going to be some half hearted attempt to cash in by
recording a bunch of uninspired covers. We want to bring The Doors
music to a place that its never been. By focusing on the groove within
the songs and bringing out the innate heaviness of each track our goal
is to completely re-envision what The Doors may have sounded like if
they created their music in 2016.” – Matt Zane

He’s a good singer.” – Robby Krieger (Speaking of Matt Zane)

I love my friend Matt’s concept. Re-creating the doors classics with
his own spin on it. Intense and inspired!!” –  Ty Dennis. Drummer for
Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger

A singer has got to bring it all in order to tackle The Doors and
Matt Zane has both the voice and the stage presence to do this music
the service it deserves.” – Dave Navarro

Milton J and The Leftovers Release Debut Video, “Killing Dreams”, Off of Upcoming ‘Vain Wisdom’ LP

option 2

Alternative Rock/Hip-Hop Quintet Milton J and The Leftovers have released the debut video for “Killing Dreams” off of their upcoming Vain Wisdom album. “Killing Dreams” combines the compositional depth of a fully rounded instrumental orchastration with sharp, provocatively subversive lyrics.

The track was an opportunity for me to express the frustration and struggle that I’ve been experiencing for the past few years. This industry is like modern day politics, so dependent on its formulaic copies of artists that have come and gone. The point of this song was to address the questions as to why business and politics have taken the ability to have a voice in our society. Its was also there to demonstrate the range of abilities our band has.Milton J

Preorder Milton J and The Leftovers Vain Wisdom:
iTunes | Amazon

Hailing from Frederick, Maryland, Milton J and The Leftovers have created a buzz in the Mid Atlantic. Rocking the stage from NY to NC the crew has had the opportunity to share the stage with a range of major artists including Redman, Rehab, Nappy Roots, Mayday, Ces Cru, Almost Kings, and Super Bob. Their dedication to the music is evident as they are currently finalists for best Rap/RnB act in the Maryland Music Awards, #1 on the ReverbNation charts in their city, and have an unmistakable face in the DMV music scene.

option 3The crew’s sound is a mixture of Alternative Rock and Hip-hop developed into it’s own consciousness. MCs such as Mike Shinoda, Slug, Immortal Technique, Nas, and Eminem, along with bands like Deftones, Incubus,Sublime, Linkin Park, and Red Hot Chili Peppers are just a few of their many musical influences.

Milton J and The Leftovers have been making their mark on the industry since 2009. Starting out as a solo artist, Milton J formed the Leftovers with drummer Garret Hall, guitarist Kristina Hong, bassist Edward Hong, and DJ Silverio Montano along the way. The group name came from an inside joke logoMilton J had for a b-side album called “Leftovers”, because kitchen leftovers are the best just as the leftover tracks of an artist that make a b-side record. Members of the group liked the idea so much they adopted the name for the band.

The name has evolved from a simple inside joke to a movement made strong by their supporters. Their influence has spread past the DMV as they look to take over the industry.

Mr. Kristopher Releases ‘Chess Moves’ EP, Out Now on Afterlife Records

Chess Moves EP - Album Artwork

Mutligenre Electronic Music producer Mr. Kristopher (Kristopher Gray), known for touring with Tech N9ne (Strange Music, Inc) and appearances at Dancefestopia and Lose Control 7 during SXSW, recently released his 4 track EP Chess Moves. Utilizing classic techno elements paired with devastating drops and a refreshingly raw energy level,Chess Moves is a transgenre masterpiece that is a must hear for any dance music fan.

The Chess Moves EP is a big deal to me because I feel that I am able to finally create all the sounds that are in my thoughts at a professional level of music production. What makes this release so exciting is that this is my debut EP, and it is being released by incredible artists that inspire me. The first song on the EP is titled “Checkmate” and it carries with it a raw energy that was perfect for the music video. It is composed of breaks followed by a haunting electro house drop. The second song on the EP is titled “Cannibalistic” which was incredibly fun to record. The melody of the song I recorded on guitar, and on the hooks I created two different styles of electronic music that first made me fall in love with the genre. The third song of the EP is titled “SMILE” which is one of my favorite new tracks to play out because of the synths that were used. This song delivers a heavy punch of a TB-303 synth that I re-created in Nexus. The final song “Binary” is an incredible mid-tempo song that destroys crowds everywhere, and is a wink about what will be coming out in the future. This is Mr. Kristopher’s first chess move.Mr. Kristopher

Traces Release “Of Servility” Lyric Video

TRACES_group2

Phoenix post-hardcore band Traces has released a new lyric video for their single “Of Servility”. The title of the track is in reference to a person who is fed up with those in power. The imagery of the video is very much in line with this theme, producing images reminiscent of George Orwell’s novel, 1984.

The narrator within the song feels he is alone in how he feels and is trying to awaken those people around him who are blind to the lies and corruption he sees,” says guitarist Nick Zieser. “To him, those people are sheep or slaves, if you will, to those in power.

“Of Servility” is the second single from the band’s debut selt-titled EP. The Matt Good (From First to Last, D.R.U.G.S.) produced effort will be released on April 8th. Buy “Of Servility” on iTunes.

About Traces:
Coming out of the hardcore/metal scene of Phoenix, AZ, Traces was born from the idea of blending musical passions. While the group decided to step away from the breakdown and scream centric side of their roots, the aggression and technicality of those styles were kept in. Founded by guitarist Jon Campbell and Nick Zieser in 2015, Traces found its true musical focus with the edition of vocalist Joey Holiday.
