hellcaminophoto-by-aaron-shaw

Arkansas based Stoner/Doom trio Hell Camino have released the Official Video for “Vertigo” off their album Orange Lily.  “Vertigo” was shot and directed by Joe Lane of Anointed Media.  Orange Lily is currently available for download through Official Hell Camino as well as Chrome Mountain Records, physical copies of the CD are currently in duplication.

“Vertigo”, is about how a person feels when they are fighting drug addictions, dizziness, the withdrawals, crying themselves to sleep at night, anxiety and subsequent failed relationships. –  Lefty Williams (lead guitar & vocals)

About Hell Camino:

orange-lily-coverHell Camino is a stoner/doom band based out of the Heart of Dixie, Little Rock, Arkansas, formed in 2014. Twin brothers Larry “Hash” Williams(bass/vox) and Lefty Williams(lead guitar/vox), have been a staple in the Little Rock music scene in various bands, but with the addition of Scott Rains on drums, the band found our sound and was ready to begin recording our first and self -titled full length album, ‘Hell Camino’, released through Wormwood Records in January 2015.
With the soul of the blues and the heaviness of 70’s rock, throw in whiskey, weed, women, guns, and fast muscle cars, you have Hell Camino! The band has been burnin’ up the tracks from Little Rock, Arkansas, to Montgomery, Alabama, and making new fans over the past two years. On June 16, 2016, we signed with Chrome Mountain Records with our second full length, Orange Lily.

lovelesslust Release Video For First Single “AntiYouth”

LoveLessLust_1_Hard

Art-Rock/Industrial artists lovelesslust have announced the release of their debut studio album The Car Crash That Ended Her Life Came As No Surprise on August 19th.

lovelesslust has been my passion, my lifeblood, since I was a young teenager. Obsessed with the intense, visceral sounds of rock and electronic music that scared most of my friends and peers, I knew I had found my purpose. I knew something this important would take time, discipline and training to create, so for nearly a decade, lovelesslust was a collection of late night experiments in dark rooms, sitting on hard drives that only I could access.-Johnathan Cooper Composer/Performer

The video for the first single “AntiYouth” can be seen below.

LA-based lovelesslust (composer/performer Johnathan Cooper, guitarist/bassist Dana Wells, and drummer Anders LaSource) bridges the gap between rock band and art piece; their darkly aggressive industrial sound coalesces with an electrifying stage presence, sinister original art that flanks the stage, and a black and white visual motif that unites the musicians themselves with their art.

lovelesslust has performed at renowned venues such as Bar Sinister, House of Blues – Main Stage, and The Viper Room, and toured across the southwestern United States, which culminated in a performance to a packed house in Austin during SXSW.

The upcoming 11-song album THE CAR CRASH THAT ENDED HER LIFE CAME AS NO SURPRISE, produced by Cooper and mixed by Amir Derakh(Julien-K, Orgy), incorporates the band’s live energy, vocal harmonies, and lush strings into their synth-heavy sound. An early version of album’s first single, the anthemic crowd-favorite “AntiYouth”, was remixed by the legendary Chris Corner (IAMX, Sneaker Pimps).

Warden Debuts “Do It Like This” for Insomniac’s ‘Discovery Project Releases’

insomniac_2016_dp_release_warden_do_it_like_this_art_1920x1080_r01

Electronic Artist Warden has made his Discovery Project debut with his minimal trap single “Do It Like This”.

The percussive synth and droning vocal that occupy the top end allow enough space to let the drums speak—and then his bass comes roaring. A dirty buzzsaw just thick enough to provide some low-end grit to the mix swirls around an array of fantastic edits and gangsta vocals.

The process for “Do It Like This” was actually a pretty quick one. I love slower, trappy tracks you can throw in the middle of playing house to switch up the vibe, so I just decided to make one. I basically found the weird vocal noise you hear in the beginning and just tweaked the hell out of it. The rest just flew together that day. I was listening to EPROM, Alesia, and Alix Perez at the time, so that sound was really inspiring me.Warden

Alesana Announce “Annabel” Book & “Ten Frail Years of Vanity and Wax” Tour

Alesana_Promo_Zero

Pop-metal band Alesana has announced that they will release a book entitled “Annabel” on August 31st. The short novel will tell the story that the band’s three concept albums are based around. Vocalist/guitarist Shawn Milke and his sister Melissa narrated a reading of the first chapter, and director Jason Ligon turned it into a lyric video.

This story has been a work in progress for nearly seven years,” says Milke. “It began when Dennis and I decided to tell our own story through the albums of Alesana. It eventually grew into an album trilogy and now, finally, a short novel. Creating this abstract universe and telling the story of Annabel has been, in every way possible, both challenging and rewarding. It is an accomplishment that still stuns me to this day. Thank you to everyone who has joined us on this journey.

Alesana has also announced dates for the “Ten Frail Years of Vanity and Wax” tour where they will perform their debut LP On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax in its entirety. Oh SleeperFamous Last Words, and Artwork will join them on the 12 date run. VIP Packages for the upcoming tour are available via meetandscream.com

Pre-order “Annabel” here and you will also receive a special edition of the Alesana album Confessions. The special edition includes the single “Fatima Rusalka” which has previously only been released digitally as a single (never on a CD) and one brand new unreleased song.

IMG_5903Shallow Side. Two words defining more than just four members of a band about their upbringing, their relentless dedication to more than just music, and their ever daunting of shadows of life, lust, and loss.

Powering through the trenches of lies and deception in the beginning stages of touring Shallow Side arose above and beyond their call. Stranded and lost ten hours from home they battled their way into over 500 venues nationwide compiling over 200 live shows a year for the past 5 years garnering national attention from North America’s largest radio stations and media platforms. Now joining forces with Thermal Entertainment, the team has garnered the strength to bring the world a brand new look along with a ground breaking sound to rock and roll.

With heart pounding drum licks accompanied by thundering bass the sheer vibrations are enough to make any foot want to shake. The melody from the guitar rings out creating a familiar sound and the soulful voice that follows creates an instant classic for every household. Can you remember when music brought everyone in? Can you think back to when the song made the difference? Do you remember when the family was told this will take you to hell but definitely sounded like heaven? The music is back and it’s better than ever.

Hitting rock bottom isn’t hard to do when you start from it and aren’t expected to grow from it. That’s exactly the kind of hand Shallow Side has always been dealt and today makes the change. With hope fueled passion, hard lessons learned the band Shallow Side will and has stopped at nothing to make sure every ear gets a listen and every voice gets a chance.

“We’ve been through the ringer, no one can say we haven’t paid our dues” Eric the frontman of Shallow Side explains. “We’ve been stranded without a pot to piss in promised tomorrow just to find out it was canceled due to rain. Had three career ending injuries while touring and it hasn’t slowed us down enough to lose momentum.”

The band released two EPs HOME TODAY (2012) and STAND UP (2014). The new full length ONE will be coming out in the Fall 2016 with the first single REBEL being serviced to radio in July.

Kevlar Releases Official Video for “Oblivion” Off of ‘Home Is Where the Heart Is’ EP

KEVLAR_promo_shoot

Pennsylvania hard rock band Kevlar has released the Official Video for “Oblivion,” off of their April released Home Is Where The Heart Is EP.  “Oblivion” was directed by Zach Kubiak and filmed in Erie, PA.

“This song is about struggling with your emotions and wanting them to just leave and thinking that feeling nothing would be better than feeling everything, but finding thats not the case. Its easy to run and hide from what you’re feeling in life but that can never be a permanent solution, and I learned that the hard way over these past few years. This video showcases the emotion put to the music and the lyrics between all four of us. We hope you can see it, too. Enjoy!” – Kelci Margaret

“Love the aggression this track has with the wicked riffs and breakdowns.” – Jake Flaugh

“I love everything about this song. It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.” – Anthony Sanzo

“Oblivions musical technicality mixed with it’s melodic flow makes it such a fun song to play and listen to.” – Nick Sanzo
