Haliwel Release Official Music Video for “Crack in the Frame”

Madison based heavy rock band Haliwel has released the Official Music Video for their single, “Crack in the Frame.” Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Crack in the Frame” is off of the band’s 2016 full length release, Pandemic.

‘The song “Crack in the Frame” hits the bullseye with musical elements rock and metal fans can appreciate – – a progressive groove, sweeping melodies, meaty and melodic riffs, grindcore vocals, and an intricate Opeth-esque acoustic guitar solo.
The official music video for “Crack in the Frame” adds even more depth and dimension to the track, like icing on an already decadent cake.’ – Tattoo.com

“We took full advantage of being able to direct a video for ‘Crack in the Frame’, the heaviest song from Pandemic, adding metal elements into it, which we most likely wouldn’t get a chance to do in other songs. We crawled through mud, destroyed instruments, and made a mask out of a real cow skull! The song itself is about karma coming back to bite a narcissistic and destructive person. The singer in the video was fired soon after shooting for being that type of person, but was left in the final cut so that he could sing his own obituary, of sorts, which we thought was very fitting.” – Haliwel

Haliwel is a Wisconsin-based five-piece hard rock band, and they are a force to be reckoned with for 2017. Haliwel saw success with their first release in 2014, From the Inside, which was a complete DIY (Do It Yourself) album. We see another DIY effort from the band with the much celebrated October 2016 release of “Pandemic,” an album that takes a major step forward for the band. On “Pandemic” you will hear the familiar sound that is Haliwel: riff-driven instrumentation with moving lyrics and catchy melodies, but now with a darker, more refined sound.

Haliwel was formed in 2011, and the band started working on songs immediately and had enough material for the full-length debut album “From the Inside” within a few months; a couple of the songs on Pandemic were also created during these early sessions. From the Inside was finally released in 2014 and it brought Haliwel onto the scene with a bang. After their first few shows, Haliwel started sharing the stage with national bands such as Framing Hanley, Nothing More, and Ra. From the Inside captured the attention of radio stations, both internet and terrestrial. Haliwel was granted radio station takeovers, live acoustic performances, and they were even asked to host their own two hour radio special. “The Only One,” the lead single from From the Inside, was awarded “Song of the Year” in 2014 by Max Ink Radio.

The band’s follow-up release, “Pandemic,” features many different levels of “heavy,” from the slow and heartfelt ballad “My Letter,” to the intense and driving “Crack in the Frame.” A more seasoned performance and harder hitting material has made Haliwel the live show to see. They have played festivals like Rockfest and Bratfest and shared intimate club stages with Black Stone Cherry, Sick Puppies, and many, many more.

Pandemic’s lead single, “The World Over” (MaxInk Radio’s 2016 Song of the Year) took Haliwel to new levels. The track was picked up by many FM and online stations, more than 50 in total. Look for “Crack in the Frame” to build on that success.

Chuck will be joined by Alex Bergeron Jr. (Agents of Oblivion/Deadboy/The Elephantmen) on bass, Dallas Sheppard (Nineball) on guitar, and Douglas Esper on percussion.

“I’m so excited, and I hope everyone else is excited too. We’ve had so much fun traversing the country this summer; the additions of a second guitar and bass have enabled me to bring the music up to the level that I have been hearing in my head, and expand the possibilities tenfold. We’ve made a lot of great, warm, and loving new friends–truly beautiful people–whom i cant wait to see again. We also can’t wait to be reunited with an equal amount of older friends, you all know who you are, see you all real soon! We also can’t wait to get back out tomorrow, but it always seems to go by so fast!!!! I finally want to send a very very special thanks to Michelle and Doug Esper (who a lot of you know as Mr. Harry Bickerson) without whom none of this would have been possible. To Doug and Michelle, and of course Mara and Owen, and both of their families, thank you for your faith, your patience, and your absolute trust in me. I love you all.” – Chuck Mosley

Chuck Mosley has been reported dead at least three times in his life, but he says, “In reality its only happened once.”

Now in the second year of his Reintroduce Yourself tour, which includes “a mix of old songs going back to the Haircuts That Kill days up through new material no more than a month old,” Chuck’s stubborn resilience has kept his career going through many phases.

Last year saw VUA, who Chuck handles vocals/guitar duties in, release, Demos For Sale, on EMP Records (A label run by David Ellefson of Megadeth and Thom Hazaert), he sang and played guitar on the latest from indie group Indoria, even recording an early version of his song “Bella Donna” for their EP, You’ll Never Make The Six. He also reunited with his old friends from Faith No More for two shows to celebrate the re-release of “We Care A Lot,” which cracked the Billboard top 200, thirty one years after its initial release..

This year, EMP will reissue Cement’sThe Man With The Action Hair, which was shelved just before its release due to a van accident that left Chuck with a broken back, unable to tour for over a year. The album was remastered by Bill Metoyer and features new artwork by Pip Logan.

Chuck also assumed lead vocal duties for Primitive Race, who will release their second disc, Soul Pretender this November through Metropolis. The album also features founding member Chris Kniker, a formidable record executive producer/producer for the likes of Lords of AcidtweakerProngRevCoKMFDM and more. Kniker is joined by Dale Crover (MELVINS), Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter MurphyThe MissionTricky), Erie Loch (WiccidBlownload) and the aforementioned Chuck Mosley. Primitive Race recently found themselves embroiled in an online scandal with pop sensation and form child star Corey Feldman, who felt compelled to block them on twitter.

While playing extensively through the US, the U.K., and France, Chuck spit out a dozen or so new songs, which are being fine-tuned in preparation for an upcoming recording session with renowned producer Matt Wallace (Maroon 5MushroomheadDeftones)

When asked about producing Chuck’s new songs, Mr. Wallace said, “I’m fucking thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Chuck again. I’ve always been a die hard fan of the honesty in his lyrics and his deceptively simple melodies, that always become earworms and soulworms.”

“This is one of the more talented, and infectious bands we’ve found in recent years. Safe to say we’re big fans, yeah.” – Dom Smith (Soundsphere Magazine)

Modern Mimes is an American music artist duo from Fort Lauderdale, FL. Modern Mimes consists of Adi Elcida Hernandez on vocals/guitar/sampling and Ernesto Paez on the double neck guitar bass. Their music can be best described as “Future Goth,” a term they coined in order to explain the fusion of alternative heavy guitar riffs, powerfully haunting vocals, subconscious provoking lyrics, electronic drums, and catchy pop melodies.

Modern Mimes came together in 2014. Ernesto came from a background of touring and playing in heavy metal bands while Adi was primarily a solo singer/songwriter. When fate allowed their forces to join, they took the time to harness their sound unrestrained by genres or trends. Modern Mimes is a perfectly chaotic reflection of the inner workings of Adi & Ernesto who create music in hopes of inspiring listeners to journey through their subconscious and look within. Their debut album Wake Up is a 9 song concept album that was released earlier this year. You can catch Modern Mimes on tour this Fall 2017.
