Hard Rock band Eve To Adam are rolling into 2017 with some major announcements. Not only have they finished up their long anticipated Odyssey LP, but they’re giving fans a sneak peak of their single “Tongue Tied” and have announced dates for the Tongue Tied Tour.

To quote Billy Squier, “Stroke me”, “Stroke Me” says the music business to every band out there busting their ass to make it. ETA is now done with that song and dance. Too many bands doin’ the same thing really led us to the point of trying something different. ETA’s sound is looking to the future, and ‘Odyssey” is our first big step in that direction. In wanting to get people’s attention to our evolution and survival, ‘Tongue Tied’ became the perfect choice for a first single. An anthem for shutting up your haters by succeeding where they thought you had failed. – Taki Sassaris

Female-fronted metalcore outfit The Anchor has premiered their new music video titled “The Hardest Part” off their recent full length release A World Ahead. Vocalist, Linzey Rae, most notably known for her Metal Kitchen parody videos where she takes lyrics from todays most popular metalcore artists and turns them into cooking instructions, talked about the meaning behind the song:

“I lost my mom to drug addiction. One of the most difficult lessons in life is realizing that you can’t always change or save someone. The hardest part is letting go and saying goodbye. This song is a testament to forgiving through pain, remembering the best in people, and letting go of resentment. We can only be free when we find forgiveness for those who have hurt us most.”

A World Ahead” is available to purchase on iTunes and all other online music retailers.

Mr. Kristopher Releases Dark Electronic ‘Communion’ EP Via Jet Set Trash

TSG managed, Mutligenre Electronic Music producer Mr. Kristopher has teamed with Europe based Jet Set Trash to release his newest EP, Communion. Originally premiered on Your EDM, Communion fuses high energy Electro House with heavy Industrial sensibilities to create a deliciously dark raver experience.

The textbook definition of communion is “sharing or exchanging intimate thoughts or feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental or spiritual level.” I figured that is exactly what I am doing with my music. I hope you enjoy my intimate thoughts on a mental or spiritual level!Mr. Kristopher

In creating this EP, Mr. Kristopher essentially doubled down on the energy and darkness of the genre, clearly evident in the underlying synths and gloomy vocal samples and artwork. Influences on the first track, “Dark Lord,” for instance, come from the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Slipknot, and Rob Zombie… There are many elements of the EP that defy normal musical convention, and that’s part of why I’m loving it so much. – Matt Meadow – Your EDM

Communion EP Track List

Mult-various electronic music composer, producer, and instrumentalist Kristopher J. Gray, aka Mr. Kristopher, raises the levels of frequency in a colossal way. With a punk-metal background informing his darkly unique tone and energy, eclectic experimentation with natural ambient sounds—traveling the ocean and mountains to record almost all of his music with distorted sounds from nature–and polished production quality, Mr. Kristopher is breaking barriers with his electronic licks, core riffs, and hip-hop kicks that delivers an all-out head banging bass experience. Period.

Since 2011, the diligent former college student has maintained a busy show/festival schedule as well as promoting his music and career, managing to keep on a strict schedule with his college courses by utilizing green rooms and downtime between sets in his travels. Mr. Kristopher has created and developed a presence among the risingcontenders of today’s top tier festival circuits. Throwing down on stages such as Dancefestopia (4 years in a row), The Gathering of The Juggalos, Backwoods Music Festival, Safe In Sound Festival, and SXSW. He’s also recently been chosen by none other than Complex Magazine to participate in a 14 episode series and developed a hip-hop presence through sharing the stage with Tech N9ne and touring with Potluck. In 2016, he also participated in remixing Emmy Award winning Denyse Tontz’s “United States of Anxiety” and Dave Aude’s “Sweet Dreams.” Going into 2017, he’s ready to break new ground with his first European label release, Communion EP, with Jet Set Trash (which includes such alumni as ZARDONIC), bringing his uniquely dark fusion of electronic styles to an eager new audience.

New comers take heed, Mr. Kristopher is far from rookie status, despite his recent blossom onto the electronic scene; he’s long since left the kiddy pool and has yet to look back. Mr. K has been swinging with the best of the best for some time. State by state, he has worked his way around the country through various clubs and theaters; spreading his message of love and down to the ground good times. If you’re in search of a light, look no further. Let this wild-style rhythm and passion fueled sound be your guide. From Mr. Kristopher’s heart to yours.

lovelesslust Release Their New Video Covering David Bowie’s Song Fashion

lovelesslust_1_hard

Los Angeles, CA Art-Rock/Industrial artists lovelesslust have released the video for their cover of David Bowie’s hit song Fashion.

One year ago today Rock music legend David Bowie passed away. To help celebrate his life and legacy, lovelesslust decided to cover Fashion as a tribute to an artist that inspired them and many others.

There are few voices that seem to scream the truth as loudly and provocatively as David Bowie. I’ve loved his music forever and his death felt personal. I wanted to honor the inimitable Dead Man Walking one year after his passing, my tribute to the Blackstar from this little spider from Mars, where yes, David, there is life.
Fashion was, for me, the song that opened the floodgates to the expansive and fantastic world of Bowie.
We all miss you, David Bowie.-Johnathan Cooper Composer/Performer

About lovelesslust

Official | Facebook | Twitter

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.

In August 2016 they released their album THE CAR CRASH THAT ENDED HER LIFE CAME AS NO SURPRISE, which was 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).

WVM Releases Electronic Pop Single “Sown”

wvm_2

Electronic musician, visual artist, and multi-instrumentalist WVM has released his Electronic Pop single “Sown”. Echoing both classic synth-pop masters Depeche Mode and New Order as well as the more modernized sounds of Daft Punk and  The Chromatics, the Christoffer Berg (The KnifeFever Ray) mixed single was inspired by WVM’s love of 80s Pop, while still heavily infused with his unique aral stylings.

“Sown” gets a lot of its inspiration from 80s Bowie and Peter Gabriel with a lot of early Prince…. but mostly it’s just the music I want to hear, a lot of my heart and soul went into it which is why it really doesn’t sound like any other artist other than me.” – WVM

About WVM:

“The name WVM is a wavelength, everything in this reality is made of waves from the car you drive to the skin on your bones. What I love about these waves is that they can be molded into anything. The juxtaposition of the W and the M are intentional to remind me everything has it’s opposite. The letters can stand for anything you want but it’s just WVM.”

September Mourning Release Official Music Video for “20 Below” Off of Debut LP, ‘Volume II’

septembermourning_2016

The Dark Alternative, Hard Rock Transmedia Project September Mourning have released their Official Music Video for “20 Below” off of their debut full length album, Volume II, which is out now on Sumerian Records.  “20 Below” follows the continuing story of human-reaper hybrid ‘September’ through parallel story lines as she is pursued between two worlds.

“20 Below is about ending the cycle of abuse within our own lives, whether it’s self inflicted or from an outside source. We’ve all had those relationships where someone has gotten close to us, abuses us in some way… knocks us down so hard it diminishes our self esteem. “20 Below” is about the realization that the beat down feeling and feelings of worthlessness are untrue and being caused by some external negativity. It’s about being strong enough within your own self to rise above. There are no saviors or Messiah coming to save us. There’s only the strength in our hearts and our souls, which is greater than we can even conceive. It’s great enough to be the catalyst to save our own selves if we find a way to tap into that part of ourselves. – September

September Mourning is also gearing up to join Dope and Combichrist as direct support on their Blood Lust Death Tour with Davey Suicide opening.

Hear George Morris’ Sci-Fi, Indie Pop Track “Full of Stars”

promo

George Morris, the indie rock artist and former frontman of The Satin Peaches, has released the second single from his upcoming self-titled solo LP. The track “Full of Stars” follows-up the album’s lead single “100 Years“.

“‘Full of Stars’ basically all came from the Space Odyssey books by Arthur C. Clarke….plus a few random rhymes,” says Morris. “The chorus is one of my favorite melodies I’ve written, probably because I don’t remember writing it.

The full-length will be released on February 10th and is Morris’ third album since his departure from the Island Records band The Satin Peaches. After the group called it quits in 2010, Morris began writing new material, expanding his guitar and piano skills, and working on tunes that called back to Radiohead, Velvet Underground, and The Beatles. In 2012, he recorded his first solo record titled Organ Solos and shortly after formed a backing band called The Gypsy Chorus to release his second album We Will Go To Hell For This.

Pre-order the new self-titled album here.

About George Morris:

Raised by musical parents, George Morris was born to write and perform music. He began making an impact on the Detroit music scene in the mid 2000’s with the Satin Peaches. In summer 2007 the Satin Peaches were included in the lineup of Lollapalooza. The band gained international exposure when they hooked up with Oasis manager Marcus Russell and signed on with the major label Island Records. Citing “lack of collaborative inspiration” the band called it quits in 2010 and George immediately focused on writing new material, expanding his guitar chops, piano skills and strategizing the next move. In 2012 he recorded a solo record entitled Organ Solos. Following Oragn Solos, was his second solo release We Will Go To Hell For This. With a solid live lineup featuring Helena Kirby, Zach Pliska, Doug Diedrich, and Ronny Tibbs, known as the Gypsy Chorus, George Morris is now ready to continue his musical quest with renewed spirituality, passion and a zest for finding the perfect musical soundtrack for our human experience.
