Slant Release Lyric Video For Their U2 Cover Of “With or Without You”

90s influenced Rock band SLANT has released the Lyric Video for their cover of the Classic U2 Hit. “With Or Without You” was Produced with Sameer Bhattacharya (Flyleaf / P.O.D.).

With or Without You” is our favorite cover song to play in a crowded room to get a whole lot of strangers to come together for 3:49 – Munir Haque

There was something endearing about tracking “With or Without You” with Slant. Hearing the urgency and passion in Fahim’s vocal performance solidified the song’s relevancy after 30 years. It was a pleasure to be part of the process.” – Sameer Bhattacharya

It was great to work with a band on a cover song who truly made it their own. I love their take on it. – Brad Dujmovic (La La La Bird Time)

Connecticut rock outfit, Crossing Rubicon are releasing a new lyric video for current single titled, “Who’s Gonna Save You“. The single comes from the rock quintet’s 2016 full length, No Less Than Everything.

“Is there a God or not, who knows? But until we know for sure, we should respect each other or if not, the very person next to you could be the god that creates your Hell on earth. This song is a biblical style warning to people who cheat each other!”
– Scotty Anarchy

Purchase No Less Than Everything here and watch the new lyric video below.

Connect with Crossing Rubicon:

Crossing Rubicon began as a two-man project involving Scotty Anarchy and Pete Ahern (Red China Blue). The band then enlisted, current drummer Brandi Hood shortly thereafter. Zach Lambert came on board and the group’s second guitarist. Brandi’s long-time rhythmic accomplice Jeff Diablo joined in the spring of 2010 as the groups bassist to round out the lineup. Pete stepped away from the band in the summer of 2010. Rob Dolan (ex-Dirty Blonde, ex-Hot Mess) joined to fill the lead role through four very successful shows including opening slots for In This Moment, Nonpoint, Pop Evil, and Rev Theory. In March 2011, the groups current guitarist Matt Douglas took over as the group’s permanent lead guitarist.

Success continued as the band landed opening slots for Motley Crue, Bret Michaels, and Tantric. Bassist Jeff Miles stepped away from the band in late 2013 to be replaced by the groups current bassist, Steven Riccio. Crossing Rubicon’s music is often described as a throwback to metal of the 80’s and early 90’s, as band such as Queensryche, Alice In Chains, Metallica, Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden, while having a modern rock sound.

Not A Planet Debut New Song “The World We Know”

img_5846

Indie rock quartet Not A Planet have released their new EP Smoke Bombs and Cigarettes: The History of Now on September 9th.  Listen to their second single “The World We Know” now.

“‘The World We Know’ is a tongue in cheek ‘State of the Union’ and commentary on our culture’s proneness and desire for violence, drama, and distraction,” says vocalist Nathan Corsi. “We tried to encapsulate the tension musically with very restrained verses and an explosive, frantic climax in the chorus. It’s almost like going through news cycles and waiting for the next tragedy or atrocity. The pressure just builds until suddenly, it bursts.”

Smoke Bombs and Cigarettes: The History of Now was produced by Jacob Bunton and engineered by Jason Elgin, with mastering by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Muse, Dr Dog). The EP is the band’s sophomore release and follows up 2013’s The Few, The Proud, The Strange LP. Pre-orders are available now at the band’s website and fans that sign-up for the mailing list will receive a free download of the first single “Tell the Truth”.

Every day, Not A Planet is hustling.

In a circuitous route, Nathan Corsi, an Akron, Ohioan, made his way to Kansas City after a featured role in a year-long documentary about life as a busker in New York. It wasn’t long before Nathan and Liam Sumnicht, drummer native to KC, who love each other very much, made a rock and roll baby together, and named it “Not A Planet”. A rotating cast of bass players tagged in and out alongside the duo on national tours and local shows for years, but in 2012, William Sturges enlisted as a permanent player. They toured extensively as a trio until 2015, and during that time, put out the NapSack EP and The Few, The Proud, The Strange LP. Their music won local and national awards, and earned fans from all over the world. Accompanying Not A Planet since mid-2015, Nathan Showalter is touring with the band, with keys and harmonies that fill out further the already lush sound.

New music from the Not A Planet EP Smoke Bombs and Cigarettes, is being released late summer, with the first single “Tell The Truth” streaming now.

Undeniably fervent performances, bristling harmonies and catchy-as-fuck rock and roll songs are the Not A Planet signature.

Alesana_Promo_Zero

Pop-metal band Alesana has announced that they will release a book entitled “Annabel” on August 31st. The short novel will tell the story that the band’s three concept albums are based around. Vocalist/guitarist Shawn Milke and his sister Melissa narrated a reading of the first chapter, and director Jason Ligon turned it into a lyric video.

This story has been a work in progress for nearly seven years,” says Milke. “It began when Dennis and I decided to tell our own story through the albums of Alesana. It eventually grew into an album trilogy and now, finally, a short novel. Creating this abstract universe and telling the story of Annabel has been, in every way possible, both challenging and rewarding. It is an accomplishment that still stuns me to this day. Thank you to everyone who has joined us on this journey.

Alesana has also announced dates for the “Ten Frail Years of Vanity and Wax” tour where they will perform their debut LP On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax in its entirety. Oh SleeperFamous Last Words, and Artwork will join them on the 12 date run.

GEARS Releases “End This” Lyric Video

12108190_1644933882390710_5731231171980307249_n

Miami, Florida based Hard Rock band GEARS have released a lyric video for their track “End This” from their latest EP “Pride Comes Before The Fall” which is available now on iTunes. The “End This” lyric video is the 3rd lyric video that has been released from the EP with the critically acclaimed “Face Down” and “Take Away” lyric videos coming before it.

The EP was written by Corey Lowery & GEARS, produced, mixed, & engineered by Corey Lowery, and mastered by Rodney Mills Masterhouse. The lyric video was created by Cody Doyle of CB Entertainment.

People have strong opinions and beliefs regarding violence in our streets, more specifically concentrated around Police brutality. ‘End This’ lyrically, is a look into both sides of it, the Police that we put our trust in to make difficult decisions in a split second and the victims of the brutality, who could be on either side. In the middle, we have the media. Depending on which media source you’re getting your news from, will decide which political agenda you’re being fed. We need to stop letting the media influence us to perpetuate the war of any racial or political agenda. Simply put, we need to END THIS. – Jimmy Wooten (GEARS)
