Rock Band THE STARS REVOLT has released the official music video for “Be Careful What You Wish For,” the lead single off of their debut, self-titled EP. Due out May 18th, The Stars Revolt is available for pre-order through iTunes, now!

“’Be Careful What You Wish For’ is a song dealing with loss. It touches on understanding and coming to terms with things out of your control and the uncertainty of what will and what could be. How the little choices you make today could have huge, everlasting effects. What you want might not be what you get, so be careful what you wish for.” – The Stars Revolt

“The song ‘Anything You Want’ was written with INXS’ Andrew Farriss when I was auditioning to be a member of INXS. The song has an intense energy and makes you move! We wanted to capture that vitality in the video. My wife (Daniella Casey) is a dance instructor so she rallied up her troops and the vibe they brought is straight-up INCREDIBLE!!! The director (Mike Leber) took the visual over the top with color and movement. This video is a fun burst of energy that gets you on your feet as the girls knock you off em!!” – Marty Casey

3. Broken

Since the time Marty Casey shot to fame as a runner­up on hit CBS reality TV show Rockstar: INXS, his brand of rock ‘n roll has been ever­ evolving. Former L.A. Guns bandmate Tracii Guns describes Marty as “a charismatic front man with a golden voice, incredible drive and impeccable songwriting skills,” Marty’s long and winding journey as a musician has led him to this moment: releasing his debut solo album, The Ground You Walk On, in 2017.

Marty met two of his future bandmates while playing on a little league baseball team in their Chicago hometown at age eight. That band became the beloved Chicago rock group the Lovehammers. True to their Chicago roots, the band’s second EP was produced by legendary producer and Chicago native Steve Albini (NirvanaPJ Harveythe Pixies, & more). While on tour with the Lovehammers, Marty auditioned for and was ultimately asked to join Rockstar: INXS.

Although the show’s top prize – a gig as front man for INXS – eluded him, the buzz Marty created as the runner­up on the 2005 reality show crescendoed to a full­on career of songwriting, touring, and recording when the Lovehammers were signed to Epic Records. He continued to blaze new trails with his powerfully electrifying performances: first, with the Lovehammers; then, as the lead singer of L.A. Guns, one of the hardest rocking and most notorious bands to come off the Sunset Strip; and now, in 2017, as a solo artist.

In order to solidify his own sound, Marty worked with renowned producer Marti Frederiksen on his debut solo album. Marti — who has worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Faith HillCarrie UnderwoodBon Jovi, and countless others — recorded with Marty at the historic Quadraphonic Sound Studios in Nashville.

While ushering in a new era in his musical career, Marty’s upcoming release also subtly hints back to his rock ‘n roll reality show days. One track on the new album called “Anything You Want,” was created during the filming of Rockstar: INXS, and was written by Marti Frederiksen and INXS’ Andrew Farriss. Other co­writers on The Ground You Walk On include former American Idol judge and esteemed songwriter Kara DioGuardi, as well as country music hit-maker Gary Allen.

With The Ground You Walk On, Marty’s songs build on his rich musical journey and express his exuberance for life. Marty explains, “I had been playing with a band since I was a teenager. I wanted to spread my wings for a moment and record these songs that I had in my head for the last few years.” Marty goes on to express his sentiment that these songs are about the experiences of the past building us up to who we are today. Marty Casey’s solo album will released in the spring of 2017.

Divided Minds Release Their New EP ‘Mood Swings.’

Having premiered their new music video “I Forgot You,” in AntiHero Magazineand “Don’t Get Too Close,” in New Noise Magazine Divided Minds Mood Swings, is now available for purchase on iTunes & Streaming now on Spotify!

When writing Mood swings we were really going for a jack of all trades, master of none sort of feel. We like writing pop music and we like writing punk music so anytime we encountered a scenario where we were like “does this song fit with the others?” we just said screw it and wrote it. We don’t want to be defined by a genre, we like all kinds of music and we like to let that influence our creative process, and I think that really comes across in the EP. We’re really happy with how Mood Swings turned out, our recording engineer did a great job. Releasing this thing feels like the scratching the biggest itch imaginable because we’ve had most of these songs written for months or even years and we’ve all been dying to show it to people. Our more die-hard fans have been beating us up because they’ve been hearing these songs live for years and have had no other place to hear them than in person. So they’re psyched and we’re psyched too for these songs to fall on some fresh ears.” Sean Collins Lead Vocalist/Rhythm Guitarist

He Is We Releases Highly Anticipated New EP, ‘Hold My Heart’!

Washington alternative rock band He Is We has released their long anticipated new EP, Hold My Heart.

Click HERE To Download ‘Hold My Heart’ On iTunes!

Track List:
1. Dear Adam
2. Every Other Man
3. All I Need
4. To Infinity and Beyond
5. Hold My Heart

Rachel Taylor found inspiration for the name He Is We while growing up in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State. Shy and awkward, Rachel found solace and empowerment through her love for music and God. She quickly learned to focus her angst into writing and singing. She took a risk and shared her music with others and discovered that the joy it brought them doubled the joy it gave her. This was the impetus for her extreme passion to use her music as a means to reach others like her. Rachel has always said that the band name He Is We, which she created before she became a teenager, symbolizes “dropping our pride and fear and recognizing that the person(s) on stage and in the audience is us.” “We can all connect through music and use it to support and help one another.” She moved to Tacoma at 18 and formally formed the band, He Is We. Rachel signed a music deal with Universal Motown, and then with Universal Republic. She “birthed” the album, My Forever, and then the EP, Skip to the Good Part. He Is We found commercial success with songs like “Happily Ever After” and “All About Us.” Early fan favorites also included songs, which pre-date the labels, like “I Wouldn’t Mind” and “Pardon Me.” He Is We is currently independent and Rachel continues her journey to create music with a purpose.

Generation X is known as being the generation of slackers, cynical and disaffected, but they’re also the MTV Generation, and they demand excellence in their music. As the traditional industry has deconstructed, fame increasingly narrowed to a small minority of bands, this generation of fans have continued to support and eagerly anticipate the raw, unfiltered experience of their rock Gods. Now, as a new rock music culture emerges, one defined by fans and artists rather than labels and MTV, LOUDWIRE’s GEN-X SUMMER WITH BUCKCHERRY, P.O.D., LIT and ALIEN ANT FARM is set to remind us that rock never died.

You’re gonna get your money’s worth on this one, the Gen X Summer tour is gonna be one to remember for sure. I love these bands. We all came out around the same time exploding onto the scene with great summertime hits and an awesome live show get your tickets now at genxsummer.com and let’s get wild and loose!” – Josh Todd (Buckcherry)

Anaheim based Buckcherry burst onto the scene in 1999 with their now classic, self-titled debut album quickly skyrocketing them into the ranks of top modern rock bands. Hit singles “Lit Up”, “For the Movies”, “Dead Again”, and “Check Your Head” brought the celebration back to the party scene, recalling the gritty glam impact of Mötley Crüe but with a Gen X demanded, modern self awareness . Later albums continued to develop their reputation for volatile, mercurial themes and infectious hooks; such singles as “Crazy Bitch,” “Everything,” “Too Drunk,” and “All Night Long” became screaming choruses for fans across the world. With their irreverent and bawdy lyrics, delivered with frontman Josh Todd’s whisky weathered vocals, paired with filthy guitar riffs and high energy, throbbing bass lines, Buckcherry has sustained a hard earned reputation for being the very definition of Rock Stars through 7 hot selling full length albums and an EP, as well as maintaining a not-to-be-missed live presence with regular touring schedules alongside such fellow legends as Mötley Crüe and Papa Roach. Buckcherry’s current line up includes front-man Todd along with Stevie D. (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), Kelly LeMieux on bass, Kevin Roentgen (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Sean Winchester(Drums).”

“This is the good vibes, Rock & Roll tour of the summer. A bunch of friends hitting the road together and playing music we love for more friends across the states.” – Sonny (P.O.D.)

P.O.D. (Payable on Death) emerged from the San Diego metal scene in 1992, and their massive fan following quickly found them signed and releasing their top selling album, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown. The singles “Southtown,” “Rock the Party (Off the Hook),” and “School of Hard Knocks” became instant radio and MTV hits, which was followed by the RIAA-certified triple platinum album, Satellite. The lead single off of Satellite, Grammy nominated “Alive,” is recognized as a modern rock classic both for the raw talent and uplifting message. P.O.D. has continued to produce top quality metal music over the past 2 decades, seamlessly infusing dark, melodic metal with uplifting inspiration and hope. They’ve maintained a touring presence throughout, whether headlining their own or performing alongside Alter BridgeDisturbedIn This MomentRammsteinThe Offspring, and Godsmack. P.O.D.’s current line up is Sonny Sandoval (Lead Vocals), Marcos Curiel(Lead Guitar, Programming, Backing Vocals), Traa Daniels (Bass, Backing Vocals), and Wuv Bernardo (Drums, Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals).

“We’re super excited to tour with our long time friends and colleagues of 20+ years this summer. It’s going to be a real hoot, to say the least!” – Kevin Baldes (Lit – Bass)

Fullerton, CA’s Lit came together in the late 80s and shot to stardom with the release of their Billboard topping second album, A Place in the Sun, via RCAin 1998. The first single, Billboard Music award winning “My Own Worst Enemy,” became one of the biggest hits of the year. The following singles, “Zip-Lock” (featuring Blink-182 in the video) and “Miserable” (featuring Pamela Anderson in the video), both also shot up the charts, driving the album to go platinum in the US. Despite the shocking loss of drummer Allen Shellenberger, Lit continued to develop a devoted fan following as they progressively evolved their sound from pop punk to a more country influence. Lit has maintained a constant festival and touring presence, including Warped Rewind At SeaRockfestDownload Festival, and Driftwood Festival. The band is currently A.Jay Popoff (Vocals), Jeremy Popoff (Guitar), Kevin Baldes (Bass), and Terry Sterling (Drums).

“Summer 2018 Loudwire Gen X Tour is gonna be one for the books!! All Cali bands, all old buddies from the office, who could ask for more right?? Except maybe a few thousand American rock and roll fans cruising out to the show to party and receive what we deliver.” – Terry Corso (Alien Ant Farm)

Since the formation of Riverside, CA’s Alien Ant Farm in 1995, the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success. Over the course of their four studio albums, cumulative sales surpass five million units a Grammy nomination and 4 top 10 singles. The band built a massive following on the road early in their career via high profile 2001 runs with Linkin ParkPapa RoachWarped, and as the headliner on an MTV presented Fall Tour. In 2002, fame spread across the world, bringing Alien Ant Farm to the major European festivals, Australia’s Big Day Out and a headline run in Japan. The following year they returned to Europe with Metallica, and to this day the band has steadily delivered audiences in territories across the globe. Alien Ant Farm is currently touring with Dryden Mitchell (Vocals), Mike Cosgrove (Drums), Terry Corso (Guitar), and Tim Peugh (Bass).
