WORLDWIDE PANIC Release Official Music Video for “Party”

 Party Cover Art

LA Based Heavy Metal Band WORLDWIDE PANIC has released the Diego Gonzales directed official music video for their newest single, “Party.”

“In my perspective it was a challenge to us as a band as well as in respect to finding a director. There are no shortages of videographers and directors in Los Angeles County. I know a lot of great ones that are total visionaries and could have easily shot this video and it would have just been another day at the office for them and I didn’t want that. I wanted to find someone who had the same passion for the song that we had. The moment I spoke to and met with Diego and showed him the song and saw his reaction we immediately started storyboarding with each other. It was not an easy task to complete in any regard. We wanted something extremely specific that was based on true life events that occurred in my life. Finding the actors, booking a sound stage, finding a crew, getting props, and be lengthy processes to deal with. A week to the date, Worldwide Panic, myself and Diego spent four hours at a professional soundstage filming the band performance and that weekend we had casted the actors who take this dream and turn it into a nightmare. The scenes portrayed in this video most actually happened to me. It is still difficult for me to watch this and not feel empathy for the actor on screen. I could not believe that those things happened to me in real life and now I am where I am living a happy fulfilling life. I think the rawness captured in this video encapsulates many life lessons I had to learn the hard way. Even with the dark subject matter of the song and video I like that it is done in a fun way and makes something that was very painful entertaining and fun and teaches people to avoid the many pitfalls that exist in society. It is with great pleasure I present, Party!” – Lane Steele (Bass / Vocals)

“On this track we had the pleasure of having my good friend Aaron Nordstrom help produce the vocals. He had this to say, “I’ve known Lane Steele for many years since we were in school together. I’ve seen him evolve and work very hard for awhile and find his voice as a musician. I had the pleasure of working on the song “Party” and enjoyed it very much. It was a smooth workflow and resulted in a great song. Take a listen and be sure to catch them on the road with Flaw this fall.”
– Aaron Nordstrom (Gemini Syndrome)

Candy Coated Suicide

“Equal parts cute, creepy, and catchy – ‘Candy Coated Suicide’ by Night Club is a mesmerizing work of art. With a heavy but bouncing beat, playful synths, and a hypnotizing vocal performance, Night Club’s new song is as fun as it is habit forming. Candy Coated Suicide plays like a love letter from Harley Quinn: Cute, bubbly, and earnest – but ultimately deadly and a little deranged; in the most beautiful way possible.” – Stereo Stickman

Advance Praise for Scary World

“This might be one of the most radio friendly synth pop acts in recent history. There is nothing gritty, occult or dark about Night Club. With their sound firmly rooted in the electronic eighties, Night Club revives a style in a highly convincing way. This is actually suited for large audiences, for pop festivals and for goth clubs alike. This stuff put a smile on my face and I’m sure it is potent enough to do that with audiences everywhere. So yeah, I will recommend this album to all you eighties-freaks out there. You know who you are…” – Merchants Of Air

“I already told you, I simply love this album. Compared to their first record, the band’s artistical path is much clearer without losing variety. Night Club has an unmistakable style which they continually evolve. If that’s your cup of tea, you’re absolutely right here at the Mad Hatters Tea Time! And now: run for Scary World!” – Electrozombies

“Night Club’s production value is incredibly professional, masterfully compressed drums and seamlessly arpeggiated basslines building a strong and driving foundation for the music. Emphasizing electro synth wails and sirens accentuate energy and drive when necessary, but are used sparingly enough that they deliver a strong enough punch each time that it never gets old. Their vocalist’s gentle and almost tantalizing voice offers a beautiful contrast to the instrumentals, offering chiming innocence during moments of tension, and an extra dose of adrenaline when the synths take a back seat.” – Horror Addicts

“And what’s the conclusion? ‘Requiem for Romance’ was good, ‘Scary World’ is scarier and better. Way to go Mr Brooks, and welcome back Miss Kavanaugh. Again, you haven’t disappointed.” – Electricity Club

“This record is definitely going to be put on repeat by me when it’s released on Friday. Dark, brutal and hard to forget, Night Club live with this record are going to be amazing – I would want this band opening my tour too. Highlights for me on this album include, ‘Scary World’, ‘Blood On Your Blade’ and ‘Vampires’ which is a treat near the end of the album and an easy favourite for me.” – Thinking Lyrically

XAON. An elusive name born amidst Switzerland’s highest mountains. Never quite fitting in any of the numerous galleries metal has to offer, drifting through the extremes whilst juxtaposing finesse and vehemence, exploring the vast echoic gloominess of the human mind. You can simply call it DARK METAL.

After a successful major european tour with gothic metal monsters SIRENIA and folk metal legends TYR promoting their debut EP Face Of Balaam and several large festival shows with the likes of PARADISE LOST, ELUVEITIE and ROTTING CHRIST, the combo led by Vincent Zermatten (guitars) and Rob Carson (vocals) took their alchemical artistry to a new level with the release of their first album The Drift through Sliptrick Records. The album progresses from spectral ambiances to grandiose and intricate orchestrations, it evolves from oppressing aggressiveness to majestic lamentations and will make you journey through a turmoil of monolithic pummeling and distinguished mournfulness.

Following this critically acclaimed release, XAON has set foot for the first time in the USA, toured in JAPAN while supporting OBSCURA, performed at the first edition of ROCK THE CASTLE in Verona opening for bands like MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, EXODUS and more and is ready to take the rest of 2018 by storm and proving themselves as an upcoming force around the world.

Nashville based country music artist WILL THOMAS REED has released his new single, “Home Is Where the Bar Is.” Originally premiered on Country Music News, “Home Is Where the Bar Is” is the first single off of his upcoming To Whom It May Concern… EP, due out June 1, 2018.

“Home is Where the Bar is” is a song all about that special place we all have, your local watering hole where everyone knows you and the bartender has your choice beverage in a cold glass waiting for you when you walk through the door.” – Will Thomas Reed

2. What You Didn’t Say
3. Home Is Where The Bar Is
4. Hold You Someday
5. Play It Back

Click HERE to Pre-Order ‘To Whom It May Concern…’


Nashville-based, Virginia Native, Will Thomas Reed has been cutting his teeth in the music industry since the age of 13. Being a lover of all music, Will left East Tennessee State (on a Bluegrass Scholarship) to spend several years touring full-time with the Grammy Award Winning Rock Band 12 Stones; when they disbanded, Will moved on as Lead Guitarist for the popular rock group Throwing Gravity before fronting his own project, the Will Thomas Band and hitting the road with a multitude of major label acts.

Burned-out, frustrated, and pulling further away from his Country roots, Will took a much needed break from the industry, to write, record and develop his own unique brand and musical sound – which blends Country Music with Americana and Classic American Rock-And-Roll, in a very modern way.

The new E.P. To Whom It May Concern…, set to release globally on June 1, 2018, was recorded and produced in Nashville at The Cat Room and Brown Owl Studios with Brian Craddock (Daughtry) and mixed by Matt Ross-Spang (Elvis Presley, Margo Price, Jason Isbell), at the famed Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, and mastered by Brad Blackwood (Alison Krauss and Union Station, Sara Bareilles, Black Eyed Peas) at Euphonic Masters, is a brilliant blend of fun and emotional life-stories, but also showcases great songwriting and a wide array of dynamic musical influence.

“As a child, I can remember listening to George Jones on vinyl and thinking about how honest his voice and lyrics were; He told stories that would make you fall in love, break your heart, make you laugh or cry; such conviction in every song.” –Will Thomas Reed

From his first single, “I Sit On Acid”, released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release Lust to the electro-thrash of 2012’s Deep Chills, Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for thirty years. Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases.
