Another Day Dawns is a high-energy hard rock band that was established in 2010 by drummer Nick McGeehan and guitarist Tyler Ritter of Lehighton, Pennsylvania. Initially performing classic rock covers, the addition of front-man Dakota Sean ignited their evolution into a full-on original act. Writing music at a breakneck pace, the trio quickly generated buzz across the northeast Pennsylvania region. Another Day Dawns earned opening slots for Fuel, Avatar, Sammy Hagar, Godsmack, Puddle of Mudd, Bad Flower, Trapt, Breaking Ben, 5 Finger Deathpunch, Daughtry, and BuckCherry. They band also accompanied former lead singer of Hinder, Austin John Winkler in his 2017 tour. As one of five finalists in the national NeXt2rock competition, Another Day Dawns took the opportunity to play the legendary Viper Room in LA.

Inspiration flooded in the spring of 2017 as Livi Dillon topped off the band’s lineup as their new bassist, and Another Day Dawns was signed to M7 Booking Agency in April of the same year. The band has been writing non-stop ever since, formulating their next masterpiece to share with fans. Although in a creative mindset, Another Day Dawns continues to play shows every week all along Northeast America, including some of their favorite gigs at the Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA, PennsPeak in Jim Thorpe, PA, Musikfest Main Stage in Bethlehem, PA, Sherman Theatre in Stroudsburg, PA, Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA, and Wally’s in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.

Through years of extensive show bookings, the band has cultivated a strong and loyal fan base with hundreds of audience members per show, and 10K followers on social media.

MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT Release Hotly Anticipated New Album, ‘In The House Of Strange Affairs’

New Promo

Happy Valentine’s Day from “America’s Most Dangerous Kult”! Wax Trax! legends MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT have released their sexy new LP, In The House Of Strange Affairs, a 12 track masterpiece celebrating all that is deliciously decadent and craven with their uniquely scintillating lyrics and addictive sound. The seamless connection of Buzz McCoy’s brilliant soundscapes and production with the iconic lyrics and vocal presence of the quintessential front man Groovie Mann culminates in a sonic adventure that is set to garner new fans and entice the band’s historically loyal and enthusiastic kult following.

Advance Praise for In The House Of Strange Affairs

“With a sheer multitude of musical styles and socialistic genres seamlessly meshing into a sordid melting pot of creative debauchery, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult retains the flag of anarchy among the masses with a ‘fuck you’ style and a ‘watch this’ smirk. Drenched in kitsch and soaked in gasoline, ‘In The House of Strange Affairs’ will become a looped playlist of hypnotic decadence in whatever listening receptical you choose.” – Jammerzine

“As far as a review goes, there’s not much I can say that could sell this record any more than it will already sell itself, T.K.K fans are practically addicts for this stuff. If the band emerged in 70’s New York in the cinematic world they’re so dearly devoted to they’d be on Travis Bickle’s hit-list for sure and would revel in in the fact of being so too. As uncompromising as they are unsavoury, T.K.K will always thrive in their very own house of strange affairs.” – Happy Metal Geek

“Eclectic,yet sonically appealing,by track two,the record has laid it’s landscape down, and has invited the listener in.With beats from the Land of Rhythm and Blues.raunchy vocals courtesy of lead singer Groovie Mann,and spoken-word overlays,the album is a strange affair all it’s own. Spotlight Tracks include “Gold To Grey”,the album opener,”Strange Affairs”,and the first song released from the album,”Year of the Klown“,which first saw release last year as part of a Sleazebox Records Sampler.” – Rock And Roll Infinity

“Per usual, TKK has outdone itself with originality. This phenomenal album is one that dreams are made of, a little dirty and a lot of good. The groove on this album is reminiscent of the new wave style of the eighties, and lets face it, it’s awesome. The sexual innuendos are noticeable. It is a sexy album, it is a good album, and it will get anyone in the mood for fun.” – Rock Documented

Hailing from Chicago’s renowned Wax Trax! Records stable of recording artists, MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT have been conjuring up sonic tales of sex, blasphemy and kitschy horror since 1987. Along with label mates such as Front 242, KMFDM and Ministry, TKK (as often abbreviated), helped develop the industrial music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating one of the most diverse repertoires in modern day music. Their sound can be described as electronic rock, heavily influenced by both disco and funk. One of their most distinctive characteristics is the use of spoken-word samples lifted from B-movies laced throughout their songs. Since debuting, they have released 13 studio albums, and their music has been featured in a variety of films, television/cable shows and soundtracks, all the while making a reputation for themselves as one of the most notorious and controversial cult bands of their generation.

Artist Franke Nardiello and musician Marston Daley, two Chicago neighbors who enjoyed late night burritos while watching foreign horror movies on VHS rented from the corner store, began conspiring to make a trashy B movie (in the style of Russ Meyer and John Waters) to be called “My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult”. While the film itself never came to fruition, they also wrote some music to be the accompanying soundtrack. Both worked at Wax Trax! Records in Chicago, and when the label heard the tracks, they were intrigued and eager to release it.

The duo took the title of the film as the name for their band, and decided to focus on the musical group full time. Taking the stage names Groovie Mann (Nardiello) and Buzz McCoy (Daley), they worked on creating an occult-biker meets disco-rock influence look for the project, which included a bevy of voluptuous back-up singers and dancers known as the BOMB GANG GIRLZ. The New York Times wrote, “Sex, blasphemy, big beats and go-go dancing; they’re all in a day’s work for My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult ”. This attracted the attention of indie fans and the ire of religious groups in practically equal measure. They released their first album I See Good Spirits And I See Bad Spirits in 1988 followed up by the hard-hitting dance floor classics “Kooler Than Jesus” and “A Girl Doesn’t Get Killed By A Make-Believe Lover Cuz It’s Hot,” which featured no-wave chanteuse Lydia Lunch on vocals. By the time they released their second album, Confessions Of A Knife (1990), they were far and away one of the biggest selling acts on the label.

In 1991, the band embarked on the decadent “Sexplosion! Tour”, titled after their third album. Alternative Press reviewed the show as “Sin-sational!”. The tour was a success and the record sold so well that they signed a deal with Interscope Records shortly afterwards, and the single “Sex On Wheelz” became a sizeable radio hit.

Hollywood also embraced the group, recognizing the unique cinematic aspect of their sound. The band’s music has appeared in a slew of films and tv/cable shows including, director Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World”, Paul Verhoven’s saucy “Showgirls”, MTV’s “Beavis And Butthead”, and the cult film classic “The Crow”, in which the ensemble make a cameo appearance performing their song “After The Flesh”. More recently the KULT was written into the story line of the 2014 film “Sexy Evil Genius” starring Seth Green.

THRILL KILL KULT continue to release new material via their own SleazeBox Records label (sleazebox.com) and tour extensively with a rotating cast of musicians and dubious characters, however the core of the project has always been Nardiello and Daley, both on record and in the live act. Their performances sizzle with sleaze and infectious grooves, as Melody Maker once described, “A red hot cabaret from Hell”.

They begin their 4th decade this year with the release of a new album, In The House Of Strange Affairs on February 14th, and a North American tour commencing May 5th in Las Vegas. The current line-up is Groovie Mann (vocals), Buzz McCoy (keys), Mimi Star (bass), Justin Thyme (drums), Arena Rock (Bomb Gang Girl).

JENNY TEATOR Releases Official Music Video for Sultry Blues Rock Single, “Surrender”

jennyTeator surrenderArtwork 9

Soulful Blues / Rock / Pop Singer / Songwriter JENNY TEATOR has released the official music video for her latest single, “Surrender.” Originally premiered on Tru Rock Revival, “Surrender” was directed by Jim Foster.

“Surrender” was produced by OH NO! ØKTAPUS at Red 13 Studios

player

Surrender is about lust and curiosity. It talks about the primal want you get when someone comes into your life and they leave you wanting MORE. It’s more than just “I’m attracted to you”. It was this powerful gut feeling that took over my body, creating thoughts of what it could be like with this person. I think we are quick to disregard those moments and immediately feel “dirty” or “wrong” for thinking those thoughts. I’m saying, embrace it. We are only human. The possibilities are endless y’all. – Jenny Teator

IRON AGE MYSTICS Bring Protest Back to Rock Music with “Save It For The Revolution”!

IAM Collage 1 w. Cover V2 w. CB HR

Toronto, Canada based political rock band IRON AGE MYSTICS is returning the spirit of progressive protest to the genre with the first track off of their upcoming, debut LP, Pride Before the Fall, “Save it For the Revolution.” A rally cry for those who know that this system is a fraud, “Save it For the Revolution” is a hell bent rejection of the societal sickness of today.

Player

“Iron Age Mystics represent the current cutting edge of political rock music, so say many. The strengths of this band range widely, but the message of each song consistently occupies the driver’s seat. Overall, the recordings and themes are intended to deliver a bracing sense of self-empowerment in the face of what appears to be overwhelming odds. The bottom line here is: if you’re willing to take on some of today’s most pressing issues disguised as well-crafted rock songs, this might be the band for you.”

Pride Before the Fall Part 1 Track List:

2. Save It For The Revolution
3. The Great Divide

IAM Promo 23 HR

“Wielding Pride Before the Fall, IAM charges right up to the front lines of the struggle to reclaim Meaning and Purpose in Rock ‘n’ Roll.” The Greylock Glass

IAM started as a writing project initiated by Greg Mount (drums) with members Clayton Rudy (bass guitar), Allan Wohng (guitar) and Kevin Connelly (vocals). The guys hit musical ‘pay dirt’ at about the 4th or 5th month of jamming together bi-weekly with the earliest version of “You’ve Got The Power.” That one track set the tone for the writing that was to become the IAM signature or ‘brand,’ if you will.
The next couple of years were spent between the rehearsal studio, the recording studio and the live stage.

After concluding his part in the recording of IAM’s 8th studio track “Pride Before The Fall”, Greg Mount (drummer) had to step out of the recording process and so Alexander ‘Sascha’ Tukatsch (who played percussion on an earlier track entitled “Down Deep”) stepped in to complete the album. Similarly, Allan Wohng (guitarist) was stricken with a condition that hampered his ability on guitar so Chuck Brown completed the record.

IAM was and is an ongoing project that is steeped in talent, integrity and a true obsession towards making ‘Music That Matters,’ because that’s what matters…

IAM Promo 16 HR

In this human-centric world, natural law is almost completely absent. To no surprise, the most of what you see, eat, hear, read and breathe—and many of the idols you hold so dear—are violently corrupt. Make no mistake, this is by design.

So in retrospect, why would I, as the author of this album, elect to spend years of my creative energies and large sums of money I really didn’t have working paycheck to paycheck to produce this little gem, knowing full well that it had little to no chance of commercial success?

​Simple, really: I was so gripped by the pain-ridden part of my humanity, I had such a constant knowing that ‘evil’ was winning, that I could not subvert it anymore. Many of my traditional heroes died in my heart throughout that process. Then, I felt very alone. Possibly like you.

​For my part I intended this album to inspire those who can see through the artifice of gross, inhuman bigotry, whilst taking the piss out of a few false idols of our culture. Principally, challenging our blind adherence to self-proclaimed authority in its many forms. A little boost of adrenaline for the ‘eyes wide open’ people who are waking up to the fight.

Realize that no matter on which side of the political spectrum you stand, few persons engaged in the constant pursuit of power have any loyalty to you. Yet for the most part, these are our idols. Unfortunately today, we have very little loyalty to each other as peoples and are, therefore, easily divided. It’s become so simple to exploit us, a child could do it. Time, money, resources, vast infrastructure…no problem.

So I ask of you: please set aside your differences and be brave enough to know that you don’t know exactly what’s going on, and be human enough to know that it’s rapidly getting worse for everyone and everything. ‘Evil’ is conscious kids, and it currently rules the rock, and it’s probably not who or what you think it is. Stop trashing your neighbor over petty differences and at least try to embrace a much bigger picture. We have much more in common with each other than we do the with the elite.

Finally, in my opinion, we now exist on the edge of a precipice that could be a deeply stressful breakthrough for human consciousness or WW3 or maybe even worse, total statist control of every aspect of our lives. If I were a gambling man, l’d say the last latter option is the most likely. That said, I’m not a gambling man…

As a species, we are callous, cruel, self-possessed and inherently prone to creating our own fantasy worlds around ourselves. However, we are also brilliant, bold, beautiful, selfless, and when in crisis, can rise to almost any occasion.

I won’t underestimate what humanity could and really must do. We need to realize that we are all that we have and we are truly the stewards of the Earth as it is today. Every other living thing here on planet Earth depends on us waking up to that fact. Fast.

It could happen. I’m not holding my breath on it, but in my heart, I’m quietly counting on it.
