Denver, CO based dark rock artist SHARONE has released the official lyric video for “Closer to Love,” the third single off of her upcoming LP, Reflection, due out December 7, 2019.

Player

“This is my favorite song off of Reflection. It starts slow but just keeps building, so give it a chance. It’s a love song, but not one of those mushy gushy love songs. It’s honest. It has a really fun and dancey chorus and it just makes me smile. I present to you, ‘Closer To Love’”. Enjoy! – Sharone

Channeling chaos into art, Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s Belles, and Stitched Up Heart. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live, and to eventually release her 2017 demo album, Storm.

Despite sustaining a dark and nearly melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics.

In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album Storm. Following the release, underwent a complete lineup change in her band, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: Enchiridion of Nightmares (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality.

There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.”
The Ringmaster Review

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and is currently working on her third studio album. This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm.

Sharone’s third studio album, ‘Reflection’, is due out December 7th, 2019.

Art

Nashville based Punk / Metal Band DIGITAL BRAINS has released the lyric video for their new single, “The Itch,” out now via Go Long Entertainment.

Player

“We won’t say who this happened to, but, we all like the bad girls. Face it, they’re fun. Girls, you like the bad guys too. You know, when there’s that person you know is no good for you, but it’s so right….at least the sex is anyway? So right, you get “The Itch” to go back, even when you know you shouldn’t because you’re addicted to them. You get “The Itch” to go back, because something about the way the treat you like shit keeps you hooked. Unfortunately, sometimes the bad girls (or boys) give you more than you bargained for. When “The Itch” sends you to the doctor, well, its a bitch.” – ADAM SHOENFELD (Vocals)

ADAM SHOENFELD

Lead guitarist and singer of Digital Brains is also part of the 70’s Rock inspired duo SunKat.

Sunkat’s song, Tom Petty, made it’s satellite radio debut on Steve Ferrone’s (of The HeartbreakersThe New Guy Show, on Tom Petty Radio Sirius XM and continues to pile up streams.

As a sideman, Adam has played guitar on over 30 Billboard #1 songs. Few people have had as big of a behind-the-scenes impact on modern country music as guitarist, songwriter and producer Adam Shoenfeld.

With the crunchy, loud and proud opening notes of his lead guitar on Big & Rich’s “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” and the edgy, aggressive tone heard on Jason Aldean’s breakout smash “Hicktown,” Shoenfeld blazed a trail for a wave of hard-rock influenced country that changed the genre forever — and he hasn’t looked back since.

Born in Huntington, New York, and raised in New Jersey with a love of jazz, blues, rock and heavy metal, Shoenfeld came to Nashville at the age of 19 and began working as an in-house musician at Woodland Studios. There he met “Big Kenny” Alphin and later John Rich, going on to became a member of the infamous music-and-art collective known as the MuzikMafia and Rich’s go-to studio guitarist, laying down demos for soon-to-be groundbreaking songs like Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman.”

With the formation of Big & Rich in 2003, Shoenfeld was invited to play guitar on the duo’s debut album, Horse of a Different Color, including the multi-platinum single “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).” The song ditched familiar country sounds in favor of Shoenfeld’s brash, live-oriented feel, and helped open the floodgates in country’s new era of crossover success. He has since played on every Big & Rich album, and toured with the group from 2005-2007 and 2009.

Around the same time Big & Rich was getting started, Shoenfeld became member of Jason Aldean’s showcase band hoping to score the rock-loving Georgia native a record deal. Once Aldean was signed, Shoenfeld stayed on to develop the superstar’s muscular sound and provided the chugging, down-and-dirty lead on Aldean’s debut single “Hicktown,” which went on to become a Top 10 hit and earn platinum sales status. Shoenfeld has been featured on every subsequent Aldean release.

Following the success of Big & Rich and Aldean, Shoenfeld’s unique sound made him an in-demand studio guitarist, and he has now been included on over 200 albums including titles by Luke BryanKeith UrbanSteven TylerBlake SheltonFlorida Georgia LineJake OwenThomas RhettAlabamaTim McGrawLee BriceRascal Flatts, and many more. His work has led to nominations for the Academy of Country Music’s Guitarist of the Year award in 2011, 2012 and 2015, as well as numerous first round nominations for CMA Awards Musician of the Year award.

As a songwriter, Shoenfeld was awarded SESAC’s Song of the Year honor for Faith Hill’s “Mississippi Girl” in 2005, and he is also the co-writer of Big & Rich’s “Real World, “High Five,” “When the Devil Gets the Best of Me” and “M-E-D-E-L-Y of the Hillbilly Jedi,” plus Aldean’s “Laid Back.”

As a producer, he has guided projects for John Rich (Rich Rocks), Sarah Darling (Angels & Devils), Kelsey Harmon (One Big Favor), luvjOi (Volume 2) and more.

In 2012, Shoenfeld joined Tim McGraw’s touring band and currently travels with the group when he is not in the studio.

A Voodoo Doctor “The Doctor” came across a girl who looked lost and scared. He used his magic to turn her into a doll, but his spell was disrupted from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for those who are looking to join our dark metal carnival world in the 13th hour.

Raven Black released their first single, “Died Inside,” on September 7, 2013 at the Roxy, selling out the venue that night. They continued to work in the studio and released their first EP, Midnight Dreary, in June 2014, successfully packing the house at the famous Viper Room.

The band was previously managed by Aaron Rossi (Grammy Nominated Drummer of Ministry/Prong), AJR Enterprises and worked with Grammy-Winning Producer Logan Mader (SoulFly/Machinehead/Five Finger Death Punch).

In October 2014, they revamped their line up and began working with Grammy Nominated Producer Ulrich Wild (Rob Zombie, White Zombie, Alice In Chains, Breaking Benjamin, Pantera, Seether,Dethklok, Otep, and more) on their new album. They then spent the next two years writing and then released their single, “Seven Sins,” in April 2016 and their EP, Seven Sins, in September 2016.

Raven Black played the Corona Hell and Heaven Festival July 2016 in Mexico City, Mexico with headliners like Rammstein, Twisted Sister, Ghost, Five Finger Death Punch, Mushroomhead, Selpultura, Alien Ant Farm, and many others.

To end their summer, they played the 2016 DirtFest Festival in Michigan with headliners Killswitch Engage, Asking Alexandria, Hatebreed, Attila, Born of Osiris, and many others.

Releasing their first Official EP with the new line up, Seven Sins dropped September 29, 2016 on the way out to tour with Mushroomhead, Sunflower Dead, Unsaid Fate, and Death Division for Mushroomhead’s Annual Halloween Tour.

The 2017 year started very busy for Raven Black as they headed to Cleveland, OH to film their new music video with MonoBloc’s Josh Apple and Andrew Sparks for “Twinkle Twinkle Little Scars,” premiered by Revolver Magazine on April 13, 2017. A little horror version of their already theatrical presence in the metal community. “We wanted to have some blood in this one,” says Raven.

After a quick rest, Raven Black toured through the Southern parts of the U.S. on their way to SXSW They played the Heart of Texas Rock Festival in March 2017. Winning fans from across multiple genres at SXSW. Raven says, “I am so proud of being able to share our METAL music with other fans of country, hip hop and pop genres. I was so surprised and happy to see them buying our music. It was fun and the only thing missing was the big mosh pit, LOL, although there was a small handful of metalheads represented this year at SXSW. ”

After returning back home to Los Angeles, the band quickly prepared for their first Headliner Tour, The Hex O’Clock Tour, which kicked off in Guadalajara, Mexico at the Roadhouse Voodoo Bar, July 7, 2017 and returned to the U.S. to begin their month long tour throughout the U.S. from coast to coast.

The Hex O’Clock Tour was a complete success and the band was able to visit so many new cities throughout the country, see their fans, and play so many new venues. Sharing with their fans, new stage props, a few new songs and announcing their new album, 13, in early Spring 2018.

Raven Black just finished their 6-week across the U.S. tour supporting Psychostick, Arsonists Get All the Girls, and Kissing Candice. The tour was amazing and the bands have developed life-long friends. Doesn’t always happen on tours, but it did this time.

To end the 2017 year, Raven Black just announced their pre-order of the Comic Book The Dark Metal Carnival – The Beginning – Issues 1-100. These pre order comic books will be series sequenced from 1-100 and will release in print this Spring 2018. Only these first 100 issues will be numbered for the fans that pre-order. The remaining prints after the first 100 will not be numbered.

They will be also releasing their 2nd EP Album this Spring, 13. In the studio in January and February, Raven Black will be working with Ulrich Wild, Wurm Group, once again to complete their next release this Spring 2018. Of course, this will surely mean a TOUR across the U.S. and performing the new tracks from “13”. There may also be a new music video coming this early Summer.

On tour this Spring with special guest, Hail Sagan and Aboleth May 11, 2018 through June 3, 2018 including an appearance at the Metal In the Mountains Festival in West Virginia on June 2, 2018 with headliner, Mushroomhead.

Following their tour, expect a few fun releases of a new music video and a new announcement of their upcoming Summer Tour after they play the 2018 Michigan Metal Festival on August 11, 2018!

“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

DAN KINCAID Releases Lyric Video for “Living in Circles”

unnamed

Los Angeles based singer/songwriter/guitarist DAN KINCAID has released the lyric video for his single, “Living in Circles.” Created by Jacob Glover, “Living in Circles” is off of DAN KINCAID’s new album, Persona Non GrataPersona Non Grata was produced by Christian Eigner (Depeche Mode) and Niko Stoessl.

“‘Living In Circles’ is one of three songs on the album that was written in one day. Ironically, those three songs are my favorites on the album. For once, I didn’t over-analyze my inner voice when writing them.

When I first wrote ‘Living In Circles,’ I really didn’t know how I felt about it. It was different and and a bit dramatic.

I sent it off to Christian and Niko to turn my words and melodies into something more beautiful and profound. And damn, it sounded great! In the end, it became my first single for this album.” – DAN KINCAID

Player

“Creating Persona Non Grata was a completely different and awesome experience for me. On the last album I released, I engineered, recorded, and edited every note and nuance on the album. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and my own harshest critic, so I had to learn to let go with this album.

When Christian and Niko offered to produce Persona Non Grata, they told me ‘Just write good chord progressions, lyrics and melodies. Be a singer. We’ll take care of the rest.’ I spent so much time and thought creating each song, and boom…. there it goes into the hands of 2 men across the pond. It was frightening and freeing at the same time, and I’m glad that I did it! Between the three of us, we created an album that was even better than I could have dreamed.

We worked on Persona Non Grata while we were 6100 miles apart and this album sounds like we recorded it together in the studio as a band. Working with Christian and Niko on this album was a true pleasure. Not only are they ridiculously talented, they’re also really nice and funny guys. We had a lot of fun working on it.

I can’t say enough about how proud of my first solo album I am! It encompasses so many aspects of the human condition, between love, despair, and rebirth.

I hope that you enjoy listening to Persona Non Grata as much as I enjoyed creating it.” – DAN KINCAID
