Just in Time for Halloween: AUTOPILOT Releases Zombie Filled Music Video for “Living Dead (Night of the Living Dead)”

AP-Living-Dead-3000-colour

Canadian Alternative Rock Band AUTOPILOT has released a zombie dominated music video for their single, “Living Dead (Night of the Living Dead”. Featuring footage from the classic horror film, Night of the Living Dead, “Living Dead” is off of their 2018 released Afterglow.

“Love can be terrifying. In the spirit of Halloween, director Kevin Van Witt put together his take on our track Living Dead edited to the classic movie The Night of the Living Dead.” – Marlon Harder

Player

“While still keeping this almost pop like vibe while staying in the alternative rock world, ‘Living Dead’ is one of those songs that you can almost see being performed live if you close your eyes while listening to it. It has a power and strength between it both vocally and musically that would fit a Friday night out so damn perfectly. This was a song where, while listening to it, I regretted not making it to their Minneapolis show last week. It was also the first song that had me dancing around my apartment a little bit.” Girl at the Rock Shows

Over the last few years, Canadian alternative rock band Autopilot has become a staple in the Saskatoon indie music scene. Known for their thoughtful lyrics, powerful hooks, dynamic stage show, and obsessive hard work, they somehow seem to effortlessly walk the line between passionate art and massive appeal. Over the course of 3 full-length records, and one EP, they’ve become road warriors, touring relentlessly across Canada and the US. They’ve been praised for their tireless work ethic by publications like Canadian Musician Magazine, who called them “quite possibly one of the hardest working bands in the country.”

Autopilot’s highly anticipated new record Afterglow, their most impressive and accessible record to date, produced by legendary Saskatchewan producer, S.J. Kardash, and backed by their most ambitious marketing campaign yet, finds the band reaching for bigger sounds, bigger ideas, and much bigger audiences. The release of their new single “Undisguised” following the success of preceding singles “Living Dead” and “Weightless”, is proof positive of this growing momentum.

Marlon Harder, the driving creative force behind Autopilot, has a knack for finding beauty in simple moments, and hope in the challenges life tends to bring. Inspired by the early writing of Modest Mouse, he seemed to know very quickly what he wanted to do in life. After the release and College radio buzz of their first record Now It’s Time You Know What We’re Losing For, unexpected illness struck, effectively putting the band on the back burner for the foreseeable future. But he never quit writing. Health improved, lineups changed, and in 2013 they teamed up with S.J. Kardash for the release of Diamond Rough, a sophomore full-length forged in the fires of struggle, faith, and growing maturity. The record widely expanded their media exposure across North America; in print, online, commercial rock radio, CBC, podcasts, and through licensing placement on major US television networks.

Their 2015 release, Desert Dreams, reunited the band with Kardash, and represented a significant leap forward in both the ever expanding sound, and rapidly growing fan base the band had built strongly upon with 2013’s Diamond Rough. Along with debuting on Earshot’s Top 50 chart, Desert Dreams received heavy rotation on The VergeSirius XM’s Iceberg Radio, and garnered the attention of New York’s prestigious CMJ; while securing the band showcases at Toronto’s CMW and Indie Week festivals, AYE Fest in Cincinnati, Fairfield Revival Festival in Minnesota, and opening doors to tour extensively in the United States.

Autopilot has always been a dedicated touring band. In support of Diamond RoughDesert Dreams, and the 2017 release of the single “Hurricane” / “Crooked Lines”, the band spent countless months on the road touring across Canada and the United States. These tours have included stops at Jersey Shore FestivalMillennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and a mainstage performance at Mesa Music Festival in Arizona supporting hard rock legends P.O.D. October 2018 marked the release of Afterglow, which chartered in the top 200 on the NACC North American College Charts as well as specialty radio in the US.

The future is truly wide open for Autopilot. Everything they’ve learned is on the table for 2019 while they continue to promote the release of Afterglow. They are casting their net wider, and going all in. Never content to sit still or play it safe, they’ve crafted a remarkable live show, and plan on spending as much time over the next year as possible, getting the new songs in front of as many new fans as they possibly can.

Advance Praise for Voodoo

“Voodoo is riveting, powerful, at times relentless and full of so many layers. It’s thoroughly enjoyable.” – Moments In Sound

“All in all, “Voodoo” is an amazing album that proves Lullwater will be force to be reckoned with in the rock world.” – Metal Anarchy

Voodoo is Lullwater’s heaviest and most explosive work to date, shot through with blinding glimpses of clarity and searing moments of passion.” – The RockPit

“If you want rock ‘n’ roll with heart, look no further. Voodoo is a must have album for any music fan.” – Rock Documented

Lullwater Poster Nirvana Style 2

For more than a decade, alt rockers Lullwater have been blazing their way to the top of the industry thanks to their gritty, Southern-infused sound and straight-up, raw performances.

Formed in 2007 in Athens, GA, the foursome was born from the indelible mark that the godfathers of grunge left on music. The convergence of this inspiration, mixed with a healthy helping of swagger, defines this critically acclaimed alternative rock band.

The group released its debut, self-titled album in 2012 to solid reviews and were immediately invited to join some of the biggest tours that same year, as well as had the single “Albatross” featured on Sirius XM Octane Radio. Since that time, Lullwater has spent the majority of their career on the road sharing the stage with such A-list acts as CandleboxTheory of a DeadmanFlyleafPassafireAmarantheButcher Babies, and more. The band released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Revival, in 2015, followed by a live EP, The Seattle Sessions, in 2017.

Voodoo, their latest effort and arguably their best work to date, was recorded at the end of 2017 in New Orleans at Marigny Studios by Swedish producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann, co-produced/engineered by Justin Davis, and mixed by Jakob Herrmann at top floor studios, is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release; this record promises an even bigger, more explosive sound that will shake you to your core.

SHARONE Releases Official Music Video for “Turn Back Time”!

91EzwVvsszL. SS500

Denver, CO based dark rock artist SHARONE has released the official music video for “Turn Back Time.” A stunning composition merging complex sonic landscapes with deeply layered harmonies, “Turn Back Time” is the second single and video off of her upcoming LP, Reflection, due out December 7th, 2019.

Player

“I’m sure we’ve all had feelings of regret and wishing we could turn back the clock and do it over again. There’s a lot we wish we could have done differently. “Turn Back Time” is my version of that.

I originally started writing this song for my best friend, wishing I had done what they wanted, and hating myself for not doing so once they were gone. Shortly before completing it, the piece turned into a goodbye letter for anyone who I felt like I had to beg to stay in my life. It became about regretting I wasted all of that time and emotion on something that didn’t really matter. I wish I could turn back time and spend all of the energy I wasted on what was truly important.?” – SHARONE

DSC 0276

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.

Synthpop Artist EVA X Announces The Release Of The Electrowoman EP

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

October 15, 2019 – Canadian synthpop artist EVA X proudly presents her new digital-only EP, Electrowoman.  

Electrowoman was recorded and produced by Gaby Marie. It was mixed by Shane Stephenson and Chris Lacroix, and mastered by Chris Lacroix.  EVA X is delighted to present two remixes as well, one of “Virtualsexua” l by Edmonton’s Virtual Terrorist, and one of “Subsume” by Philadelphia-based Silver Walks. The artwork for Electrowoman was created by Edmonton-based artist Konn Lavery.

For fans of:  Ayria, I Scintilla, Android Lust

“Electrowoman is my first EP and pretty much my first release as a solo artist/songwriter/producer ever. I was in a pop-punk band for a few years but wasn’t satisfied with the level of creative input and direction I had. After running into this in a couple projects, I started writing my own music. The first songs were almost bluesy, until I was introduced to synthpop and EBM by a few of my friends who pushed me to learn more about synths and production. Electronic music represented an opportunity to sort of own the creative process from start to finish, so I embraced it and here we are.

This sort of theme of independence definitely comes up in my writing, most notably in “Subsume”, which is pretty much an entire song about the pressure to compromise on your career as a young woman to start a family and settle down.
– Gaby Marie

BIOGRAPHY:

EVA X is the solo project of Gaby Marie, a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and robot queen from Calgary, Canada. Stylistically, it’s a combination of minimal synth and futurepop, layered with rich vocals. Inspirationally, it’s an examination and celebration of love, loss, connection, and the unique tradeoffs and joys of being a woman and artist.

Funded in large part through fan support via a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, Skeleton Man introduces fans to the dark world first revealed in the debut single, “Femme Fatale.”

Destroyer of Worlds

“The Skeleton Man has been a passion project for us for the last two years. We wanted to build an action/adventure story with high stakes, but that still has universally relatable themes and ideas. Musically we wanted to write a coherent record without any confines to our genre, or the styles we’ve made in the past. We just wanted to be free to take our sound in any direction we wanted, and to try and build an album that will have something for everybody. We also wrote recurring motifs throughout the album that reflect the character’s growth as they change. Trying to make the album feel smooth and coherent, while still leaving the listener in a totally different place then where the album starts.” – Austin Durry – Vocals

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Coyote Kid’s sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry’s true grit voice alongside Cassandra’s crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrusted foreword by shimmering spaghetti-western guitars, growling base, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between. Previously known as Marah in the Mainsail, Coyote Kid has been earning their stripes and touring the US and Canada since 2015, slowly carving their unique place between genres in the music industry.

LOLA BLACK Releases Official Music Video for Cover of CONCRETE BLONDE’S “Bloodletting (Vampire Song)”

IMG 20180726 121909 009 1

Denver, CO based Heavy Rock Band LOLA BLACK has released their dark music video for their cover of the 1990 CONCRETE BLONDE classic single, “Bloodletting.” Originally premiered on Dread Central, “Bloodletting” will be available through The Label Group / INgrooves Music Group on Día de Muertos, Nov 1st, Day Of The Dead.

Player

“Covering Bloodletting (the vampire song) by Concrete Blonde came very naturally to me. Johnette Napolitano was a pioneer at bringing a subtle darkness with a sexy swag into heavy alternative rock. She herself said that the song was inspired by Anne Rice and the Vampire Chronicles. At the time the mainstream didn’t believe “Bloodletting” would work but the song went on to become a cult classic and through our interpretation we want to keep that spirit going. Much like Concrete Blonde, our darker side has never been fully embraced so it is as if we were meant to cover this song and keep that middle finger in the air to the mainstream.” – LOLA

2018-20-07-15-23-32
