Click to Download / Stream ‘CONTINUOUS’ Online

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.

SANGRE Releases Official Music Video for “Death March”

SANGRE-portada-300-3

Southern California based Metal Band SANGRE has released the official music video for “Death March,” off of their upcoming album, Mas Fuerte Que La Muerte (Stronger Than Death), due out 12/13/2019. Shot at Fuel Music Studios in Fullerton, CA, the video for “Death March” features the band members experiencing different types of stresses from overdue bills, depression, work related issues, eviction, alcohol abuse, and suicidal thoughts.

Player

“‘Death March,’ lyrically, touches on the current situation of ‘living wages’ vs ‘cost of living,’ focusing on the stress, depression, and neglect of personal health and family while just trying to survive in this high demand world. The phenomenon is an actual epidemic in Japan known as ‘Karoshi’ or ‘overworking to survive,’ which in many cases results in suicides or fatigue leading to death.” – Henry Sanchez (Vocals)

SANGRE have long since made their mark on California’s Metal Scene & beyond.

With over 15 years on the musical frontlines this band has come to learn that longevity requires the commitment, unmatched work ethic, creative energy, and unshakable determination that is central to their ethos.

SANGRE has toured extensively throughout the United States & Mexico, and most recently made their UK debut performing @ Bloodstock Open Air Festival 2018 in Derbyshire, England.

Over the years the band’s undeniable hard work and outstanding performances earned them slots at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in 2010 & 2012, followed by the 2013 Jagermeister Music U.S. Tour as direct support to one of Latin America’s biggest bands, Molotov.

In 2015 Sangre was selected by their sponsor, Jägermeister to perform at “Welcome To Rockville” music festival in Jacksonville, Florida.

With a diverse sound and influences from across the spectrum of Heavy Metal, Sangre can and has opened for some of the biggest names in the genre such as, SlayerSlipknotKornMarilyn MansonIn FlamesMinistryMotorheadAnthraxSepulturaSoilworkSoulflyKillswitch EngageLamb Of GodCarcassSuffocationGojiraBrujeriaChimairaSuicidal TendenciesHatebreedThe Black Dahlia MurderSix Feet UnderSuicide SilenceWhitechapel, and many more!

The name they’ve created via years of Perseverance and a DIY attitude has caught the attention of many people in the music industry, one of those being, Metal ambassador Jose Mangin (Sirius XM Liquid Metal DJ & Headbangers Ball host) who to this day plays SANGRE on his satellite radio shows and even joined the band on stage to perform their cover of the Brujeria classic, “Matando Gueros”.

Speaking of Brujeria, that band has taken Sangre out on tour a few times over the years and in 2014 invited Sangre vocalist, Henry Sanchez to join them as their second vocalist. Henry would take on the stage name “El Sangron” and has played over 200 shows on 5 continents with the band since his inception.

SANGRE spent 2019 touring with Brujeria, with Sanchez performing in both, opening with Sangre and closing the shows with Brujeria, throughout Europe and the UK.

Put simply, SANGRE eats, sleeps, sweats, and bleeds Heavy Metal! This band represents the musical equivalent of an unstoppable juggernaut careering through any, every, and all obstacles that the road would cast in its way.

With an all consuming hunger to succeed in getting their music to the masses and band to the top of the industry, SANGRE is here, Pay close attention.

Hellbound Hearts was started in Yorkshire in 2011 by singer / bassist Danny and after the usual and numerous ep’s, line up changes and growing pains of any new band, Hellbound Hearts truly found their sound and hit their stride with the acclaimed 2016 debut album Film Noir mixing pop rock sensibilities with dark lyrical content and gothic metal tinged guitars.

Danny, drummer Lee and guitarists Craig and Nathan have taken this ethos even further, crafting a melodic, modern, dark and unique sound for their upcoming 2019 ep release.

While being one of only a few bands around who can actually claim they sound like no one else, comparisons can be drawn to the likes of NirvanaTherapyFoo FightersType O Negative, and Paradise Lost, among others.

PLASTIC FRIENDS Release New EP, ‘The Lookout’

FB IMG 1558700963576

Alternative Rock Band PLASTIC FRIENDS has released its sophomore album, The Lookout EP. The debut single , “White Mirror,” premiered on mxdwn and featured on Lightning 100, Nashville’s independent radio station.

Player

“We decided to narrow down our new songs and release an EP,” said Will Perkins, front-man of the group, adding that while there are still elements of their first album, “Information,” they feel like this recording “also takes our sound in a direction that tries to better capture our live performance.”

When asked what inspired the name of their new release, Perkins said that this is “a dark time for truth and integrity in our society.”

“I think it’s more important than ever that we have watchdogs to hold those in power accountable for their actions,” he said. “As corruption runs rampant, we need a lookout to help hold up the lowest levels of our society, which are the ones who are suffering the most.”

The lead singer also noted that “if you couldn’t care less about our future as a human race, I guess you
could still appreciate our music.”

“Just go about your day and stare at a mirror instead of a microscope,” Perkins said. “Listen to what you
are told and don’t question anything.

“But I encourage you to think for yourself and love thy neighbor.”

Perkins, Long and Rynerson formed the group in 2011 and were joined by Harrison, a Nashville-based DJ/producer (Nightfrog), in 2014. After writing some new material and fine-tuning its sound by performing around the region, Plastic Friends released its first full-length album, “Information,” in 2016.

Before Harrison joined the band, Plastic Friends played with a multitude of drummers – including the late Jeremy Pryor, who passed in 2014.

“Jeremy not only taught me a lot about music, but he taught me how to speak my mind,” Perkins said. “His legacy will forever live on in our music and in the minds of those who knew him.”

Members of the band were greatly influenced by the music of IncubusRadioheadThird Eye BlindFoo FightersKings of LeonGuns N’ RosesRed Hot Chili Peppers311, and Saves the Day.

Plastic Friends has performed across the Southeast and at several music festivals including Music TreeThe Big To Do, and Revolution 91.7’s Mayhem.
