“‘Heavy Breathing’ was the first track off the album that we decided we wanted to shoot a video for. The song is in your face, punching you the whole time.

VERSUS ME, from Janesville, Wisconsin is a band for today’s subcultural and mainstream pop crowds alike. They have crafted a sophomore album featuring the type of crowd-ready anthems heard in stadiums on the One Direction/5 Seconds Of Summer world tour, while simultaneously harnessing the heaviness and earnest delivery found each year on the Warped Tour’s main stage and in the pages of Alternative PressRocksoundKerrang!

Even as Versus Me take aim for mainstream chart success, arena headlining shows and the attention of the diehard fans who drive the underground scene, the band’s number one goal remains simple. Versus Me wants nothing less than positivity, communication and connection with their audience. They want to show that their music, and all good music, can help people with life toughest trials and hardships. Versus Me yearn to connect with every person they can, whether to talk about music, or to learn about where people are coming from and who they are.

Packing an arsenal of melodies, hooks, breakdowns, electro fueled bounce and deep grooves, Versus Me’s message of uplifting goodwill is about to make itself heard loud and proud – from the stage, from cars, speakers, headphones and anywhere possible.

WATCH ME BREATHE Releases Official Lyric Video for “Don’t Think I Haven’t Thought About It”

DSC 3908

Santa Cruz, CA – Progressive Pop-Rock Band WATCH ME BREATHE has released the lyric video for their newest single, “Don’t Think I Haven’t Thought About It.” Produced by Designs By Shifted, “Don’t Think I Haven’t Thought About It” is available to stream and download via The Label Group / INgrooves NOW!

Player

“This song is a true story, and it totally worked! We’ve all been in the friend zone at some point or another in our lives, and that’s precisely where I was when I wrote this. I had pretty much accepted the fact that she and I would never be together, and I just wanted her to know how I really felt. Now she’s been my girlfriend for over a year!” – Jake Ward

From the very beginning, Watch Me Breathe has been all about honesty and authenticity. Lead singer Jake Aaron Ward formed the band in 2017 purely out of frustration. “As a solo artist, I just got fed up with trying to write music only to please other people. Watch Me Breathe is really an experiment that says: what would I write if nobody else was listening?”
The results of that experiment have been surprising. In the short time since the release of their debut LP “The Lighter Side of Darkness” in February 2018, Watch Me Breathe has already accrued well over 150K views on YouTube and over 50K streams on Spotify…and the numbers keep growing.

When it comes to making albums, this particular band has an unusual process not unlike that of Tame Impala or Bon Iver: Ward (a proficient multi-instrumentalist) writes, performs, records, mixes, and masters every song entirely by himself, in his own California home studio. He jokingly explains “I just kind of suck at collaborating.” He cites an eclectic range of influences, including Peter GabrielThe PoliceImogen HeapGoo Goo Dolls, and a whole slew of underground progressive metal bands that have helped shape his unique guitar parts and complex rhythmic patterns. In concert, the band performs as a power trio, with Ward covering guitar and lead vocals, while bassist Ryan Green and drummer/baby brother Carl Ward handle the rhythm section.

SHARONE Releases Official Music Video for “Cold”!

81vAoTYcklL. SS500

Denver, CO based dark rock artist SHARONE has released the official music video for her newest single, “Cold.” Directed by Kyle Lamarof Digital Myle and SHARONE herself, “Cold” is the first single and video off of her upcoming LP, Reflection, due out December 7th, 2019.

Player

“Sharing a part of your soul with another who leaches passion and life will undeniably cause one to change.

In the moment it’s easy to deny; to accept you are the problem. By doing this you are stifling the creative passion that makes you an individual leaving that leach standing in victory whilst you suffer internally. Isolation and solitude become your only solace. They’ll leave you waiting until the wounds pulling the passion out of your veins hopefully close up. Even then, are you free?” – SHARONE

Channeling chaos into art, Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s Belles, and Stitched Up Heart. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live, and to eventually release her 2017 demo album, Storm.

Despite sustaining a dark and nearly melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics.

In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album Storm. Following the release, underwent a complete lineup change in her band, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: Enchiridion of Nightmares (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality.

There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.”
The Ringmaster Review

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and is currently working on her third studio album. This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm.

Sharone’s third studio album, ‘Reflection’, is due out December 7th, 2019.

Alternative Rock Band THE SHRIEKS has released the visually intense music video for their politically charged single, “Synaptic Free Zone,” off of their April released LP, Toxygen.

Player

“‘Synaptic Free Zone’ is a fun song about something that is not so fun.

The reality that we are all sheep following a blind destiny ordained by giant corporations that manipulate and orient us in ways that suit their business model, which is..’Don’t question, just follow, consume, and continue to be just a small number in their algorithm of pawns and deception’.

The Synapse is a junction between two nerve cells, consisting of a minute gap across which impulses pass by diffusion of a neurotransmitter. If we’re not thinking for ourselves we are in essence ‘Synaptic Free’.” – Luis Accorsi

The Shrieks is Luis Accorsi (aka Tito Lembi) based out of Brooklyn. Luis and his fantastically talented friends are the synthesis of pure, unadulterated, meaningful protest rock. Toxygen is relevant to our times and original, incredible music. It takes us further into being a protest band, but not all our music has to do with the state of the world. It has to do with the state of us as humans: in love, distraught, downtrodden, happy. Our tracks are about never being apathetic. We make our feelings known, and what comes from the heart, gets to the heart.

RIG TIME! Releases Official Music Video for “No Faith”

NO FAITH SINGLE ARTWORK

Wisconsin based Hardcore Metal Band RIG TIME! has released the official music video for their new single, “NO FAITH.”

Player

“’NO FAITH’ is a bleak declaration about giving up and a satirical response encouraging one to forgo their community. The lyrics declare “You’ll never miss what you never loved” to invoke inner dialogue, asking oneself if they truly love the setting they are a part of .“No faith in the future, No reason to survive” is a blunt submission to ponder if what the effort you offer is worth. The song is in the eye of the beholder, to offer two paths and let the individual decide what matters to them.” – RIG TIME!

RIG TIME! is an angry, caustic and vehemently heavy force based in La Crosse, WI. The band has performed 300+ shows, in 39 states and counting, since 2015. Holding true to the idea of “All Ages Or Nothing” the band has relentlessly toured across the US performing at only all ages events and resonating their substantial live sound while stressing the message that live music is for all. Deeply rooted in the DIY attitude, RIG TIME! is a determined and passionate ensemble with strong work ethic and a vital purpose.

Their recent full length album War was released on October 20, 2017 via Innerstrength Records, following the self released full-length Sick of It (2016) and two EP’s (2014’s Awful and 2015’s Devout). Featuring a sound that is the audio equivalent of a tank column entering a besieged city, the crunch and clangor of War is a game-changer. Forged in the fires of hardcore, sludge, and powerviolence, War epitomizes RIG TIME!‘s scorched-earth tactics and demonstrates the natural chemistry of the band.

Vocalist/Drummer, Bryan W. Fleming provides intensity and indignant passion to a wave of sullen and unrelenting baritone guitar riffs, forcefully delivered by Rebecca Fleming with massive low end impact and ferocity.

TESTAROSSA Releases Official Music Video for “Rock-N-Roll”

IMG 3853

Charlotte, NC Hard Rock Band TESTAROSSA has released the official music video for their newest single, “Rock-N-Roll.” Originally premiered on Ghostcult Magazine, “Rock-N-Roll” is available to download / stream via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“In the age of autotuned vocals, poorly written songs, and detuned guitars, one band emerges from the ashes. With nothing to prove and no one to impress, they set out on a collision course with destiny. Full of piss and vinegar, but not enough sense to pour it out of their boots, they released quite possibly the best debut single ever – Mother Lover feat. Danny Worsnop. The opportunities would continue to come their way. The haters and doubters multiplied. The crowd sizes increased proportionally to their egos. With the world held captivated, in awe of their amazing sense of melody and avant-garde style, they decided to give the masses what they really wanted. All the skill in the world, the looks, the bodies, the lackluster personalities, and inflated senses of self-worth were combined to make the best product any band could dream of producing. Now that band – Testarossa – is ready to share the joys of musical perfection. Executed flawlessly with unparalleled panache, Testarossa presents their newest chart-topping single “Rock-N-Roll.” Rock-N-Roll is back and you have no one else to thank except Testarossa. You are welcome. It’ll change your life.” – TESTAROSSA

Testarossa is a hard rock party band. We bring five guitars to the show and only play two, just because it looks cool. Our stage show will get the place shaking like like a bad ball joint on your ’89 Camaro. We write simple, catchy songs that will have you singing along. With loud, flamboyant guitars, thundering drums, thumping bass, and bourbon and pipe tobacco tinged vocals– if our music doesn’t make you wanna have a good time, you probably weren’t gonna have one anyway. So come on out and see us for a visual and audio induced euphoria that will leave you craving more.
