EVESTUS Announces The Video Release Of Their TEARS FOR FEARS Cover, “Mad World.”

Estonian industrial rock band EVESTUS is proud to announce the video release of their TEARS FOR FEARS cover, “MAD WORLD.” Additional guitars were recorded by Matthew Setzer (Skinny Puppy, London After Midnight, Kanga etc).

Like a twisted lovechild of Trent Reznor and Al Jourgensen, producer and frontman OTT EVESTUS’ blending of bouncing rock sound with future-noir synths and distorted vocals hits you like a bag of bricks.

“I believe this song unites a lot of people who don’t fit into this world.. And a lot of these people are among our audience so it really happened quite naturally I think. At some point we just started playing it live and now finally it found a home on our latest EP, POST 18 DEPRESSION.” – Evestus

For fans of: Marilyn Manson & The Prodigy

THRILLSVILLE Releases Dark Electronic Single, “Second Sleep”

Thrillsville Second Sleep Cover 01

LA based Dark Synth artist THRILLSVILLE has released the debut track off of his upcoming, yet to be named album, “Second Sleep.”

“Reworking and reinterpreting a song wasn’t a stretch for me. It’s kind of like taking a theme and varying it when I’m composing for film, TV or video games. It’s fun to take the same source material and put it in a completely different musical world. I’ve always loved Stolen Babies’ version of ‘Second Sleep‘ and getting Dominique from SB to add background vocals to my version made it really special for me. It wouldn’t have been right without her. I feel like the dreamy and moody quality of the original rock version translated even better with this dark dance version.” – THRILLSVILLE

“Hot off the presses, Thrillsville has a new single called ‘Second Sleep,’ and it may be my new favorite song. Almost impossible to pigeonhole, this track is equal parts industrial tinged Stabbing Westward and Sisters of Mercy-esque Goth rock. That’s a poor attempt to categorize what Thrillsville has pulled out with this song, but wherever it’s meeting in the middle is a sonically perfect place and I want more of it. I can only hope that this is a teaser of things to come!” – Echosynthetic

Thrillsville is the industrial music/ dark wave solo project of Rani Sharone. Known for his dark cabaret band Stolen Babies, Sharone has collaborated and performed with Puscifer, Marilyn Manson, and TV/film composer Tyler Bates. A fellow in the Sundance Film Composers Lab Sharone also produced music for highly acclaimed Films/TV Shows including, Samurai Jack, Ray Donovan, American Ultra, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, and more.

Second Sleep,” the first single off Thrillsville’s upcoming album, is following his horror themed debut ep, Haunt Music, which spawned the Claymation videos for “In the Hall of the Chainsaw King,” and “Lycanthrope” as well as the 3-D animated video for “Sirens.”

“Conjuring up tantalizing and warped soundscapes…Thrillsville’s music sounds like it’s been ripped directly from a melted B-movie VHS tape. It’s ghoulish, grizzly, and just plain great” – Phoenix New Times

“A treasure of an EP … ‘Haunt Music’ is like watching a horror movie with your eyes closed. Images of Freddy Krueger, Jason, Michael Myers fill your mind as the rough guitar tones, the creepy synths, and sinister beats wash over you.” – Victim of Sound

“…manic carnival music” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Punctuated with a superb eighties influenced instrumental score from Rani Sharone, […] has an irresistible charm that sweeps over you” – Biff Bam Pop!

GEARS Release Official Music Video for “Tango Yankee”

Tango Yankee Skull

Miami, FL hard rock band GEARS has released the official music video for their single, “Tango Yankee” featuring Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust. Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Tango Yankee” was produced by Corey Lowery.

“With ‘Tango Yankee,’ we just really wanted to write something dedicated to several members of our families that have served in the Military, Law Enforcement, and First Response. We really wanted this to be special, so getting one of our favorite vocalists from one of our favorite bands was very exciting and made this track just that, special. Lajon came in and absolutely crushed the track vocally. I really love the way it turned out. Trip and LJ complimented each other so well. Put that together with Clint’s epic solo and of course, Corey at the helm, this really turned into something spectacular. I believe that the thought behind the song is something that most Americans can relate to as many of us have or have had loved ones serve. Maybe even a little something that can get us past all of our political disagreements, unify, recognize the sacrifice and just say a simple ‘Thank You’ to all those who fight for our freedom, protect us and keep us safe.” – Jimmy Wooten – GEARS

Gears Promo Final Edits 55 1 of 1

Miami based hard/heavy rock act GEARS isn’t your average start-up garage band. Despite being confronted with a near disastrous setback at the cusp of their debut, headlining tour, jarring line-up changes, and financial challenges, the band has persevered and rebuilt.

Founded in February 2014, Trip 6 (Urban Rebel), Eli Parker (Endo), Tommy Herres (SCARLET CARSON) and Jimmy Wooten (SKINMASK) were all looking for new projects as their old ones had run their course.

We all wanted to do something more modern, but still rang true to our influences. Something that we could aggressively market and tour on. So, we all met up in Miami after months of talking about doing something together and what came out was the first EP, Set in Motion.

They released Set in Motion in May 2014, immediately launching into their first headline run with support from I-Exist. Just three days into the tour, their equipment trailer disconnected, resulting in a massive, horrific accident; not only did they lose their gear, but the tour van was totaled and the band members sustained serious injury. In spite of this tremendous blow, the group endured and continued the tour without missing a beat.

Later it developed that two of the founding members were unable to continue, leaving the band reeling and having to replace them with skilled, compatible substitutes:

“I was talking with a mutual friend, Joe Taback (12 Gauge Embrace) about needing a guitar player for GEARS because we let go of Eli and he suggested Bobby Thomas. I called him and showed him the songs and he was ready to go. As far as bass, I knew Chris from when Needlemouth was a thing out in Cali and I always liked his playing and he was super laid back & cool. I knew both of these dudes were definite upgrades at their instruments and were a better fit personality wise than what we had to deal with previously.”

In June 2015, Wooten and Six teamed with Corey Lowery (Saint Asonia, Stuck Mojo, Stereomud, Dark New Day) and Troy Mclawhorn (Evanescence, Seether, Dark New Day) on their new EP Pride Comes Before the Fall, and announced the addition of new members Bobby Thomas and Chris Dorame. They hit the road for their Riser Tour, once again with I-Exist, in July, wrapping up the run in September, but kept the momentum going with the digital release and lyric video for their debut single off of Pride Comes Before the Fall, “Face Down”. The band rounded out the year with the release of their much anticipated sophomore EP on November 10th, with both headlining tours and a support slot with Trapt slated for 2017.

After a very successful tour in 2017 with Seasons After and Bridge to Grace, GEARS has released a new single and video for “KING.” Once again, joined by Corey Lowery in the studio, GEARS continues to evolve. Boasting an even heavier sound with groove and aggression, they set out for Headlining Dates as well as Support Slots with Nonpoint, Upon a Burning Body and will round out their 2018 Summer/Fall Tour Dates with the last of 3 legs with All That Remains concluding at the end of September.

After touring much of 2018 with All That Remains, GEARS has shifted focus to releasing more music. Their first 2019 offering will be “TANGO YANKEE’ which features LAJON WITHERSPOON of SEVENDUST.

We’re still moving forward and, despite everything that has been an obstacle in the short time we’ve been a band, everything still keeps growing and getting better.

BRAND OF JULEZ Release Official Music Video for “Take It All Away”!

brand of julez cover 1

New York based Heavy Rock Band BRAND OF JULEZ has released the Christian Lawrence directed official music video for their newest single, “Take It All Away.” Filmed in Staten Island, NY, “Take it All Away” was directed by Christian Lawrence
“At a time where there is so much divide in our country, I wanted to throw myself into the mix. Lies don’t ever work and thinking that the wool is being pulled over our eyes is foolish. There is a voice screaming to be heard from the new generation and ‘Take It All Away’ is this Latino from the South Bronx sharing his.” – Julez

When you think of the South Bronx, you don’t think of modern, melodic rock anthems, passionately aggressive vocals, heavy guitars, ripping solos, driving bass lines or pounding drums fills. However, that is exactly what Brand of Julez delivers night after night.

Brand of Julez was formed by brothers Julez Zamora (vocals/guitars) and Brandon Zamora (bass/backing vocals) in 2011 at the ripe old age of 16 and 13, Brand of Julez have climbed their way up the NYC ranks with a passion and fury that cannot be denied.

With the release of their debut EP in September 2012, Brand of Julez have relentlessly worked to bring their brand of heavy rock to the masses with incendiary performances at legendary venues like Webster Hall (The Studio, The Marlin Room, & The Grand Ballroom), The Gramercy Theater, The Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge, Irving Plaza and Starland Ballroom. Their powerful performances have brought them to share the stage with national recording artists like Buckcherry, Ace Frehley, Pop Evil, Red Sun Rising, Lynch Mob, Gemini Syndrome, Kyng, Sons of Texas, Crobot, Drowning Pool, Adrenaline Mod, Wayland, Burn Halo, Orianthi, Alice Cooper, Stitched Up Heart, Cycle of Pain, and Full Devil Jacket.

In 2016, Brand of Julez began working on recording new tracks. Working with the engineering talents of Joey Z (guitarist for Life of Agony), the mixing magic of Mike Ferretti at Architekt Music (Sevendust) and mastering perfection of Andy Van Dette at Engine Room Audio (Sevendust, Muse, Rush) led Brand of Julez to their self produce debut album FORWARD, which was officially released in June 2018.

With the addition of New Jersey’s Nick Kashmanian (lead guitar/backing vocals) and Frankie D’Esposito (drums) from Long Island, the BOJ family is complete and ready to take aim at the national spotlight. Recent US tours with Otep, Doll Skin, Bobaflex, Puddle of Mudd, and Texas Hippie Coalition have taken Brand of Julez around the country several times. A 35 date US tour in August/September of 2018 with Orgy and Motograter as well the release of a new single, will lead Brand of Julez back into the studio for their next musical offering.

Brand of Julez are ready to deliver their heavy rage of rock that will have you banging your head, with your horns raised and leave you with songs that you’ll be singing long after the show has ended.

He details his battle with heroin addiction and how he has found a better way to live. The song is meant to both inspire, but also detail the hell that is addiction and the demons many people face every day. In the end we can all be a “Hero” to ourselves, to those around us, our kids and to “Win” in the end.
