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 Announce “Annabel” Book & “Ten Frail Years of Vanity and Wax” Tour

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. VIP Packages for the upcoming tour are available via meetandscream.com

Pre-order “Annabel” here and you will also receive a special edition of the Alesana album Confessions. The special edition includes the single “Fatima Rusalka” which has previously only been released digitally as a single (never on a CD) and one brand new unreleased song.

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)
