superKnifeGrab1

Seattle based Rock Band has released the official music video for “Super Knife.” Directed by Lance Hofstad, and originally premiered on Northwest Music Scene, “Super Knife” is off of their newest LP, Come Back, which is out now via Bandcamp.

Don wrote “Super Knife” after a close friend survived a severe injury: “This song is a series of flashback memories of this friend, while the chorus/outro are more a meditation on human frailty, friendship and loneliness. I feel like the longing in this song translates across the entire album.” – SUITCASE

Player

“With a simply beautiful melody that gently says “take all the time that you need” it ends with the meditative question “are we wandering alone down a western road?” repeated with lush harmonies. It makes you hope that at least we’ll have this tune with us if we are.” – Seattle Music Insider

Track List:
1. Jack Burton
2. Good God Why Did I Do This
3. Marys
4. Super Knife
5. Cooler Heads
6. San Francisco
7. This Party Sucks
8. 12 Steps
9. Come Back
10. Wyatt’s a Boss
11. Don’t Get Me Started

More than just a band, the Seattle-based rock ‘n’ roll group, Suitcase, is at the center of a musical family. Born of musical companionship and often found in the comfy confines of the historic Earwig Studio in the city’s Wallingford neighborhood, the group’s steady momentum is fueled by the energy it’s provided by fans, friends and kinfolk alike. Earwig, which has been home to many an act looking to cut a standout record, buoys the group as a home base, the center of a network of support and song.

Suitcase, which released its breakout record, Lisabuela, in 2001, subsequently performed two coveted sessions on the famed radio station, KEXP, playing the Audioasis show with KEXP mainstay host, DJ John Richards, along with a one-hour set on The Live Room. The band also caught the attention of R.E.M. guitarist, Peter Buck, who praised the “really good” group in an interview with The Big Takeover (issue #43), saying, “Geez, I haven’t seen a band that was unheralded in a long time that I liked.”

In 2017, the group re-formed after an invitation to play the popular Emerald City music festival, Upstream. Original co-founders Don Farwell (owner of Earwig) and Ed Otto added Clint Hoyler on bass and Joe Patterson on drums. Together, they recorded a new record, Come Back. Full of introspective lyrics and honeycomb hooks, the album is set for a 2019 vinyl release. After playing prominent Emerald City stages like the Crocodile and the Tractor in the 90s and early 2000s, the band is back for more. Why? Because family is forever.

FEUDALE Release Official Lyric Video for “Teenager”

Teenager FEUDALE

Matawan based Heavy, Alternative Rock Band FEUDALE has released the official lyric video for their new single, “Teenager,” which is out NOW via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“We are thrilled to be partnering with TLG/Ingrooves for the upcoming release of our intoxicating nostalgic, new single ‘Teenager.’

We wrote ‘Teenager’ based on our own experiences living and growing up in New Jersey. There was always something charming about hanging out down the shore and shopping (maybe getting kicked out) of the Freehold Raceway Mall or vibing in our bedroom listening to Pink Floyd and Nirvana.

When writing ‘Teenager,’ we really wanted to encompass what it was like for us being teenagers. Our goal was to give our listeners a glimpse into our lives before becoming FEUDALE. It’s a song that will hopefully bring our listeners to a place in time that they will remember as magical, uncertain, and a ton of fun!” – FEUDALE

Feudale 1

If you had to categorize the sound of the FEUDALE, it would be impossible because they are a category unto themselves. Based in Matawan, NJ, FEUDALE is a hard-rocking, blues inspired band, with a twist of alternative flare. What started as a part-time hobby for the band of brothers, eventually evolved into a full-time passion for writing, recording and playing varied styles of great music.

“When most people hear this song, they picture a girl who can’t get over a lost love or ex-lover. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. This song was written about a rage that burns deep within that you just can’t let go of, knowing full well that it will destroy you from the inside, but it’s so worth it.” JASMINE CAIN

AUTOPILOT Release Official Music Video for “Modern Age”

AP-Modern-Age-3000

Canadian Alternative Rock Band AUTOPILOT has released the official music video for “Modern Age,” the opening track off of their recently released LP, Afterglow.

“’Modern Age’ was directed by New York City based director, Kevin Van Witt. Filmed on the Lower East Side and Long Island’s Gold Coast, it captures the chaos of this new technological world we have built and the freedom that we once had in childhood. Starring young actor, Dylan, the ‘Modern Age’ video takes us through a psychedelic adventure of realities that we have created in the Modern Age.” – MARLON HARDER

player

“The opening track “Modern Age” instantly transports you to a different time where music was simpler along with life itself…you could instantly hear that this ten track album will be full of musicianship and passion that some other bands in this genre tend to avoid and ignore. Singer Marlon Harder’s voice wastes no time and brings a sense of comfort.” Girl at the Rock Shows

“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.” – Top40-Charts

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.

“People find false comfort in either science or religion. The institutions have been corrupted and are used to divide the masses into two camps. It’s the perfect scam having people argue over what’s the truth. The truth is that organized religion and science are full of shit and used to deceive us and keep us fighting each other. Institutions are tools of suppression and none are better at it than the ones telling us to worship false idols and blindly believe in fake science.” — Kyriakos “Charlie” Tsiolis

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
