September 24, 2019 – Boston based Hard Rock Band PARTS PER MILLION has released the official music video for “No More Days.” Originally premiered on PureGrainAudio, “No More Days” is the first single from the band’s upcoming EP, The Cycle, and is available to download / stream via The Label Group / INgrooves.

“Boston, Massachusetts’s based quartet, Parts Per Million is a fierce group of up-and-coming hard rockers whose Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, and ‘90s-influences sound (among other things) is a fantastic way to ensure an energetic start to your week.” – Chris Gonda – PureGrainAudio

Player

“’No More Days’ is a song about the last moments of a broken man before he ends his final day on this earth. A place that is hard to crawl out of, or believe there is a way out from. We will share stories from survivors that are close to us in hopes to bring about a new understanding to this pain.” – Parts Per Million

Music is intrusive, it penetrates the body, courses in the blood, and infiltrates the cells. Boston based Parts Per Million uses each members’ individual rock influences as the catalysts to form a sound surpassing something to be listened to and becomes something to be experienced. Not governed by image or direction, Parts Per Million’s melodic rock intertwines painfully honest vocals and bleeding guitars to generate a sound that inspires both the heart and the mind.

Out of Control Single Art

Brownsville, TX Heavy Rock Band RATCHET DOLLS has released the official music video for their new single, “Out of Control.” Directed by Menez Cortez, “Out of Control” is out NOW via EarRiot Records.

Player

“‘Out of Control’ is a very rebellious song for me as I wrote it after removing myself from a toxic relationship with my former agents and management team. I was signed at a very early age and was practically a puppet to them for 4 years. Toward the end of the relationship, I was presented contracts designed to scalp me of my rights as a musician which was where I walked away. The lyric ‘…feeling half alive and I’m ready to fly…’ is a reminder to myself that I was ready to move forward even if it meant I would handle things on my own.” – Kevin Sauceda – RATCHET DOLLS

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.

PARALLEL MOTION Releases Official Music Video for “Illogical”

Ep Art

Hard Rock Band PARALLEL MOTION has released the official music video for their single, “Illogical,” the title track off of their debut EP.

“To some people battling against anxiety might be an illogical story. But for those who live it, it’s a frightening experience. It’s a never-ending battle but music helps us take a message of hope to those in need.”

Player

“As a band, “Illogical” has a special place for us. It was actually the first song we ever made. From that moment on we realized we wanted Parallel Motion to be a band that gave the listener the confidence that they can do better as we’ve done better in our personal lives.

As fans of metal and hardrock we enjoyed listening to music that was very emotional in our upbringing. This music got us through a lot but most of those songs remind us of our past and become hard to revisit. We wanted to take a different approach when writing this ep. There were a lot of bad moments embodied in each song. But we wrote each of them in a way that instead of making us relive those bad moments it made us remember those memories as decisive moments that forged who we are today.” – PARALLEL MOTION

Active Rock Band HYPERDOSE has released the official music video for “Undeniable.” Directed by Adrienne Beacco, “Undeniable” is off of the band’s 2018 released EP, DISASTER.

Player

“It’s Undeniable that there’s an existence that assembles our memories and desires. We connect, attach, & detach continuously. The remnants evolve, devolve, & remain. Can we find a way in? a way out? or does fate make the choice?” – HYPERDOSE

HYPERDOSE SQUARE PHOTO

From the traces of the 2016 release of “Impact,” the American Active Rock Band, “HYPERDOSE” has deployed a remarkable sequel. On January 18th, 2018 Hyperdose released the New 2018 EP, entitled, DISASTER, recorded again at Crosstrax Studios in Memphis, TN with Grammy Nominated Producer Justin Rimer (12 StonesSaving AbelWaylandFull-Devil Jacket).

Disaster spawns an animated narrative engaging the listener to the deepest levels of hostility, battle & response. The outset song, “Disaster (Roll with the Punches)” vividly describes our world of defeat and digression, but only to inspire to “Roll with the Punches.” The forefront delivers heated and strong spirited vocals interwoven with shambolic and layered guitar riffs on a pillar of pillaging drums and spine-rattling bass. Each track explores its own panoramic view of emotional encounter.

“Undeniable” hits as a dynamic ballad sure to pierce the hearts and minds of music lovers. Other titles include “Phantom,” “See the Light,” and “Vile,” all of which have great hard rock experimentation and fallback on the meaning of “Hyperdose.” The Debut single entitled, “Take Control” was released April 2015 & features guest vocals from Gabe Aranda of the Modern Act Aranda. The Official Music Video for “Undeniable” is being released September 19, 2019. Adrienne Beacco (Atlanta, GA) was the videographer & editor, with live video being record by Harry Reese (Shiner, TX).

Hyperdose is:
Ben Rivera: Vocals
Blake Mattea: Guitars
Justin Mattea: Bass
Angel Delgado: Drums

All songs written and performed by Hyperdose & Justin Rimer.

Early Praise for “Date From Hell:

“This film was a really nice surprise and I don’t think the title does it justice – not that I can think of a better one – because for some reason I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. What’s nice is that I really believe the main couple throughout every point of the film and, when we see the scene of them arguing in the bar, you think “oh man, here we go again”, because you probably know ‘that couple’ from your own local.” – HorrorNews.net

“utterly compelling and a great tribute to those 80’s movies us horror fans hold so dear and I would certainly pay good money to see more. What seems like a labour of love for Ven Scott, will hopefully help to propel him into the major leagues so that in the near future we can all enjoy Date From Hell on the big screen” – Chris Andrews – Mass Movement

“Date From Hell tosses in quite a bit of gore then a little more in just the right ways. If this debut short from Ven Scott is any indicator of the guy’s talent behind the camera, here’s hoping this isn’t the last we hear from him.” – Richard Propes – The Independent Critic

“For a first time short, this film was very well shot, excellent cinematography and attention to detail shots that perfectly give off that sweaty Texas metal vibe – from the cracking of beers to the lovely tattoos on the bartender, to the honky Toni accents of Bobbie and Susie.” – Robin Goodfellow – Drunk In A Graveyard

“If you see Date From Hell playing at a festival near you, make sure you get your arcane ass in a seat toot-fuckin’-sweet…a better short you’d be hard pressed to find in our beloved horror biz!” – Horror Fuel

DMC (RUN DMC) Reveals Early Taste of New Song, “The Man”

DMC ZANE 1

Legendary Hop Hop Pioneer DMC (RUN-D.M.C) has released a teaser for the new song, “The Man.” With instrumentation written and performed by MATT ZANE of SOCIETY 1, “The Man” appears an unlikely collaboration due to Zane not being known publicly for his songwriting or guitar playing but, unknown to most, he is actually a graduate of MIT for guitar. Since then Zane has written and licensed multiple songs for various outlets but took a substantial break the last few years to focus on his directing career. DMC and Zane met when the late Wayne Static introduced them, believing Zane would be a good fit for directing the music video and track “Noise Revolution,” which Wayne sang on. After directing the video, Zane was inspired by the collaboration but was overwhelmed with music video work which forced his musical aspirations to be neglected for years to come. After a conscious shift to re-focus on music Zane’s very first track was written specifically with DMC in mind.

Player

“Collaborating with DMC was an absolute dream come true. Before I knew about The Doors or Jimi Hendrix RUN-DMC were my gods. My very first guitar lesson I showed up with a copy of ‘Raising Hell’ because my teacher asked me to bring in music of my favorite artist…I swear to you I almost cried when I heard his iconic voice over my music and playing for the first time. It was a religious experience. I put it at the same level as when I performed at The Download Festival suspended with my band Society 1 in front of 80,000 people.” – Matt Zane

“Lord Zane creates music that is insane! Powerful, energetic, fun, and captivating. He gave me that HARD hitting riff ROCKING sound that takes the King Of Rock to the next level! The beat and the guitars for the collaboration we did grabbed me in a headlock! The sound, arrangements and vibe is a force to be reckoned with! He has allowed me to continue to live my Rock N Roll dream. He’s “ the man” that’s why I called this song The Man…lol…the music dictated the title and vibe! This track definitely absolutely and completely ROCKS and Rolls!!! So move out the way!” – DMC

Darryl McDaniels or “DMC” as most of the world knows him, first made his start in the music business as one third of the groundbreaking rap group Run-DMC and quickly became the most popular in terms of fans and influence. He has been in the public eye for the past 20 years, since forming the now legendary, defunct group, RUN-D.M.C with Joseph (Rev. Run) Simmons and the late, great Jason (Jam Master Jay) Mizell. Also one of the founding members of this multi-platinum music group, selling over 30 million singles and albums worldwide, it would be hard to overstate his influence on popular culture. He helped transform Rap and Hip Hop into the most popular music in the world, while building a fan base that rivals the biggest acts in Rock ‘n’ Roll.

As the first and greatest of Hip Hop’s superstars, Run-DMC succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams – their own included – by embodying for the world endlessly creative subculture of young black New York. They were the first rappers to earn a gold album, the first to earn a platinum album, the first to go multi-platinum, the first to have their videos played on MTV, the first to appear on American Bandstand and Saturday Night Live, and the first rap band to grace the cover of Rolling Stone and Spin.

DMC has recently added another list of firsts to his life – his first book entitled “King of Rock: Respect, Responsibility and My Life with Run-DMC” (St. Martins). The book, written by DMC with Bruce Haring with the forward by rapper/actor Will Smith, offers a flavored tale of his rise within the music business while stressing the importance of respect and responsibility in today’s society. It has received rave reviews nationwide. Entertainment weekly called it “strangely compelling, bravely honest… plenty of entertaining anecdotes about life back in the day to keep you turning the pages. Like Will Smith, McDaniels is a born charmer.” Publisher’s Weekly says the book is “hard hitting yet sensitive… he (McDaniiels) argues astutely that ‘very few of the rappers will admit they’re creating a fictional character,’ and thereby create problems for themselves.”

In addition to the new book, DMC released his own musical project entitled Checks, Thugs, Rock-N-Roll.
