URN Releases Official Music Video for “Silently, I’m Still Screaming”


Orlando based Gothic Folk Metal band URN has released the official music video for their single, “Silently, I’m Still Screaming,” off of their 2015 released LP, Epiphany. The band’s newly announced members, keyboardist Cleve Hall (SyFy’s “Monster Man”) and drummer Eric James Peterson (ex-Electric Hellfire Club) are featured in “Silently, I’m Still Screaming” from their Epiphany LP released on Dark Moon Records.

“Many fans had given feedback that this song was one of their more favorites off of the album, so we wished to honor them by doing this video. We also wished to showcase our guitarist, Christopher Migdalski’s lead work on this song, as he has been a role model for those afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease and how to overcome disabilities to still pursue his life dream. Our hope is that this will inspire those to continue on in their battle and achieve whatever dreams/goals that they have.” – URN

Mr. Hall had become friends with the band a couple years ago when attending a Hollywood tour date of theirs back in 2015 and expressed interest in producing a video. Over time during their collaboration, it was discovered that Mr. Hall was an accomplished musician and worked with several bands in the Los Angeles are in the 1980s such as Exquisite Corpse and Mad Love. Cleve filled in on keyboards for URN’s 2016 West Coast tour and appeared and helped produce the new promotional video.

Mr. Peterson was the original drummer of the Electric Hellfire Club whom URN frontman/guitarist Dominic St. Charles was also an alumni member. The two had an opportunity to connect during the EHC’s 25th anniversary/farewell concert last year at The Orpheum Theater in Tampa and wanted to continue to work with each other afterwards. Eric Petersen also was recently the touring drummer for former American Idol alum James Durbin.

The video was filmed in Los Angeles, CA by Jackie Bones for Steal Your Ghost Productions and additional footage was filmed by Noel McD of Global Rapture Productions (Melbourne, FL) who also edited the video. URN had worked with Global Rapture previously on their 2015 video “Cast in Amber” which was the first single released of the Epiphany album. Dominic St. Charles co-directed the video with Mr. Bones. URN wishes to acknowledge and thank those who contributed to the crowd funding campaign to help make this video possible. These individuals will get an exclusive private viewing before the actual release of the video to the public.

URN has also completed the writing process on their sixth album which is tentatively entitled “;”(Semicolon) and have been in talks with Thom Hazaert(Thom Hazaert Company/Ellefson Music Productions) to produce the upcoming album with a potential 2018 release date. The band also is in the process of booking tours that will have them return to Canada and Mexico in 2018.

The U.S.-based dark metal band URN® is one on a musical journey exploring the darker aspects of both the conscious mind and the unconscious soul. The band has been captivating audiences across multiple genres and have been establishing themselves as one the more energetic live acts to see. The band has drawn comparisons by national trade media to such artists such as Type O NegativeLacuna CoilAmorphisNightwishMy Dying Bride and other similar acts that tend to find a certain beauty in darkness.

URN began back in 2000, while singer/guitarist Dominic St. Charles was still an active member of the Electric Hellfire Club. After fulfilling tour obligations with acts such as Danzig and GWAR, URN went out on two national tours in 2001. The band recorded and released a maxi-single called “Consecrated Ashes” to assist in touring and sold out the 500 copies of the self-release.

In 2003, the band followed up that release with the Desecrated Ashes EP and was met with great success and acclaim. The album received strong airplay support via college and Internet stations all through the United States as well as in Mexico and Canada. URN has also done a several simulcasts with Internet radio stations such as IPM Radio and Metal Works Radio.

URN signed with Rotting Corpse Records in the fall of 2005 and released their full-length LP Dancing with the Demigods with major chain-store distribution through Century MediaSynergy Distribution and Azure Green in July 2006. The album has received rave reviews in many major trade magazines such a Pit MagazineExplicitly IntenseNew WitchDark RealmsThe Ninth GateBrave Words, and Bloody Knuckles, and many more. This album has been out of print since 2008.

As a result, URN toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada and in the process toured/shared the stage with honored acts such as Moonspell, Type O Negative, To/Die/ForKatatoniaVirgin BlackTroubleBella MorteNovembers DoomCeltic Frost, and many notable others.

The band released their second full-length LP in 2009 on Rotting Corpse Records entitled Scribings of a Forgotten Soul. This was a concept album based on the true accounts of individuals that Dominic personally knew that survived the 1989 prison riots at the State Correctional Institution – Camp Hill in Pennsylvania.

With its release, URN took to the road once again in support of the new album, playing all over North America, including tour dates with TarjaFinntrollThe EternalSwallow the Sun, Katatonia, Blackguard, and Lividity. The band released another promotional video for the single “Reckoning Hour”.

In October 2011, Urn relocated from Chicago, IL to Orlando, FL and proceeded to continue to do headlining tours throughout North and Central America. In early 2014, URN signed with Dark Moon Records and released their fourth studio full-length album entitled “Epiphany” on August 25, 2015 as well as their promotional video for the single “Cast in Amber”.

The band embarked on several U.S. tours to support the release highlighted by attending the 2016 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, Laconia Bike Rally in Laconia, NH, and GenCon in Indianapolis. The band also released a promotional video for the self-titled track from the “Epiphany” album in Summer 2016.

URN, a band who is always pushing their boundaries and thresholds, looks to continue to do so over the coming years by their life commitment to constantly evolve, adapt, and grow on their musical journey. Through their ongoing collaborations with artists of other mediums such as author/media personality Michelle Belanger of A&E’s Paranormal State, and Cleve Hall, from SyFy’s “Monster Man” who officially joined the band as keyboardist in 2016. Ms. Belanger did guest vocals on Desecrated Ashes ând ˆDancing with the Demigods and appeared in URN’s video for their “Shadow Dancer” single which was nationally distributed to many media channels and is available on the album as well.

Eric James Peterson (ex-Electric Hellfire Club) joined as the new drummer officially in 2017. Both he and Mr. Hall are featured in their new promotional video that just finished production for the single “Silently, I’m Still Screaming” from their Epiphany LP released on Dark Moon Records.

URN has also completed the writing process on their sixth album which is tentatively entitled “;”(Semicolon) and have been in talks with Thom Hazaert (Thom Hazaert Company/Ellefson Music Productions) to produce the upcoming album with a potential 2018 release date. The band also is in the process of booking tours that will have them return to Canada and Mexico in 2018.

SMALL TOWN TITANS Celebrate 24 Years of ‘Superunknown’ With Cover of SOUNDGARDEN’s “Spoonman”

York, PA heavy rock band SMALL TOWN TITANS has released the Official Music Video for their cover of SOUNDGARDEN’s“Spoonman” to celebrate the 24th anniversary of the release of Superunkownon March 8, 1994.

“Chris Cornell has been a musical hero of mine since I was in high school and has been a major influence in the style of our band. Soundgarden’s repertoire of music is vast and difficult to pull off. The reason we decided to cover this classic of theirs is not only to challenge our musicianship and ability but to also pay tribute to one of the greatest voices and lyricists of Rock ‘n Roll from one of the greatest bands of all time. Our hope is that our interpretation does the song and it’s original performers the justice and recognition it deserves.” – Phil Freeman

The Small Town Titans are a power trio from York, PA who love to constantly create, as well as play live. Gone is the notion that a rock band should only release 10 songs at a time every 2 years. In a world where music fans crave new content constantly, the Small Town Titans aim to deliver their brand of art all of the time, drawing inspiration from a new wave of rock bands such as Highly Suspect and Royal Blood, and rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, and Deep Purple. Thanks to their efforts at assembling their own studio in a basement, STT can create and release songs, podcasts, live online concerts, and more with no rules. This artistic change in attitude stems from touring for the better part of 2 years, and realizing how difficult it really is.

After coming home from their last 30 day run, the band had made $4,000. After repairing their vehicle, restocking their merchandise and more, the band was left with $1,000. After putting most of that back into the band’s funds as usual, each member took home $150. This startling reality made STT take a step back and evaluate themselves as a band, a brand, and a business. After firing their manager, the boys soldiered on with the help of their team at Round 2 Records. They began to truly treat Small Town Titans as a legitimate small business more than ever before. Unnecessary expenses were cut, and more creative and innovative sources of new revenue were explored, such as utilizing the direct to fan creation platform Patreon, where the band is currently making $200 every time they release a new song on YouTube.

Instead of trying to make a million fans, STT is focusing on the fans they already have. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with a set list that’s decided right before the show, and plenty of stage banter in between songs. The band simply hits the stage to deliver an energy driven show using guitars, drums, and their voices. Nothing more, nothing less. This approach to their live performances has led to them sharing the stage with acts such as Highly Suspect, Papa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

By focusing on their engagement with social media and managing themselves, Small Town Titans are growing like never before and having more success as a business and a brand. The band just wrapped up a weekend long recording session at Hybrid Studios with friend Kevin Soffera, drummer for Seether on the 5x platinum selling record Disclaimer II, and who STT also recorded their last album Reflection with. Six brand new songs were recorded live in the studio, as well as professionally filmed by Springwood Productions at the same time. These new songs and videos will be released throughout the rest of 2017 and 2018. Songs range from the hard hitting “Me, Myself, and Monster” and “Wreck” to the ballad “Dragonfly”, an emotional song written in memory of Phil’s mother, who passed away earlier this year due to cancer, performed live with just one voice and an acoustic guitar.

Small Town Titans are actively forming a team of like minded individuals in the new music business who are just as driven and passionate as they are, rather than waiting to be discovered. As the band continues to grow their fan base online this year, they will also hit the road, this time with a smarter game plan, a stronger fan base, and a passionate team behind them.

New York based Dance Rock Band Echo Black has released the official music video for their single, “Dawn.” Directed by Chris Newhard, “Dawn” showcases the band’s vibrant, debut album of the same name.

It is theatrical, it is angry, it is mournful, it is joyous, and it is rebellious. We do our best to take into account all of our musical tastes when we write; DAWN is our coming of age story and is, justifiably, chock full of emotions, varied genres, and passion. We hope you love it as much as we do!” – Echo Black

Precious Child Releases Surreal, NSFW “WHOLE” Music Video!

Experimental video and musical artist Precious Child has released a provocative, NSFW new music video debuting their new release “WHOLE.” Created in collaboration with transmasculine multimedia digital artist/director Cade, and premiered on Paper Magazine, the video explores body horror, dysmorphia and abstraction of gender and identity in Precious’ vivid visual style.

“I directed ‘WHOLE’ at a time when I was at the cusp of reinventing my gender identity, both socially and biologically,” Cade shares. “In the video we allude to swapping bodies in a sci-fi scenario. We explore the controversial notion of ‘borrowing women’s struggle’ in a scene where blood travels from my vein through a tube and into Precious’ crotch, creating a simulated period. The experience itself was a ritual, as we both bled.”

Precious Child adds, “I think individuals should decide what they like and what they want to do with their body, accoutrements, lifestyle, and persona without regard to convention. The various symbols and signifiers are arbitrary.”

With the release of this new video, Precious Child announced they will release a new body of work WHOLE this spring. The album expands on the concepts explored in “My Little Problem (Violet Door)” and visual mini-album released last fall, Just A Body. In addition to the upcoming release, they are working on further new music with multiplatinum producer Ulrich Wild (SlipknotStone Temple PilotsWhite ZombieDeftones) and members of Filter and Puscifer.

Bloody, arresting, and surreal, Precious Child exists at the convergence of conceptual art and experimental music. The Los Angeles-based artist culls sonic inspiration from mainstream pop, industrial and metal to create confrontational and captivating audiovisual work. Precious Child’s 2017 album TRAPPED marked the beginning of the artist’s close collaboration with Cade, whose work explores the worlds of fetish, gender deconstruction and post-internet intimacy. Their first collaborative release was the video for “My Little Problem (Violet Door)“, which premiered via Paste Magazine, along with “Phantom”, an experiential audiovisual artist’s statement for TRAPPED. The videos have garnered a combined 1.65 million views across social platforms.

Prior to TRAPPED, Precious Child released full lengths Bloody Knees (2015), accompanied by a music video for “I Fall” featuring America’s Next Top Model alumni Nina Burns, and ESCAPE (2016), a soundtrack composed for the Neil Gaiman biopic “Dream Dangerously.” With the release of ESCAPE, Precious Child collaborated with Alabama artist Yonderpuss on video work accompanying the songs “Magic is Real” and “To Need”.

Gender accessories as seen in ‘WHOLE’ can be found here.

RadioBlack partner with INgrooves to Release “Thread (I Am)”


California Rock Band RadioBlack have partnered with Legend Distribution / INgrooves to launch their action packed single “Thread (I Am).” After signing with CB Entertainment Artist Management firm in 2017, this year will see a new single in March with a full-length album in May followed by extensive touring.

“‘Thread’ is about that friend you have that gets themselves in a rut and can’t break out of it… no matter how much you try to help them. It’s about that inner struggle to want to help those people but make sure you come out unscathed yourself.” – TJ Courtney (vocals / guitar)

Click HERE to Download / Stream “Thread (I Am)”

Shortly after recording at the Foo Fighters’ private Studio 606, lead singer/guitarist TJ Courtney brought in drummer Derek Gledhill, founding member of Smile Empty Soul, and bassist Hayato Takano to form RadioBlack. The 3-piece’s sound is a melodic mixture of grunge and 90’s inspired alt-rock that incorporates modern production elements.

The 606 sessions were recorded through the famed Sound City Neve 8028analog console, previously graced by the likes of NirvanaRage Against The Machine, and Paul McCartney. Producer John “Lou” Lousteau arranged dream collaborations for Courtney with Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy), Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction), and Mick Murphy (My RuinChevy Metal). The production team was rounded out by “Sound City” documentary producer Jim Rota, and Brad Smith of Blind Melon. These recordings will be featured on Radio Black’s debut album, slated for release next spring.

The remainder of the album was recorded with producer/mixer Jason “Space” Smith (MementoDigital Daggers) with sessions that featured the new line-up at Wishbone StudiosOcean Way, and The Village Recorder. Having already shared the stage with Puddle of MuddTrapt, and Vast, and with plans to release singles throughout the rest of the year, RadioBlack shows no signs of slowing down in the lead up to their 2018 debut.

“Between Courtney’s gruff vocals and Hawkins’ steady drumming, (Run Away) has an emotional intensity akin to the Foo’s own ‘Times Like These.'” – Consequence of Sound

“RadioBlack’s TJ Courtney is living proof that taking risks pays off.” – PureVolume

The raw energy invested into their debut, self-titled EP is directly reflected on stage and on record by Rise Among Rivals, a new modern rock group based out of Baltimore MD.

With a focus on heavy riffs, melodic vocals, and complex dynamics, Rise Among Rivals ties together their favorite pieces from hard rock and electronic music.

In September, after only 2 months of writing, recording, they embarked on their first tour from Tennessee to Rhode Island with the famed national recording artist, Flaw.

Their EP is scheduled to release in early summer of 2018. The six song EP is a direct representation of the bands cohesive vision, starting with their music and stemming to their live performance. The band believes that the distance between your aspirations and reality is action, which is why they have made sure to put in the work to create a recorded and live product that holds up to the high standards of each member of the band. This EP features songs that deal with personal struggle, conflict, lust, and love. Rise Among Rivals intends on pushing this EP and future music to all possible digital outlets and continuing to provide a personal, energetic live experience to fans regularly.
