Inner Circle Avenue Release Official Music Video for “Goin’ Nowhere Fast”

Toledo, OH based alternative rock band Inner Circle Avenue has released the Official Music Video for their single, “Goin’ Nowhere Fast,” off of their 2016 released, debut EP, Greetings from the Inner Circle. Says the foursome about the track:

The song, “Goin’ Nowhere Fast”, illustrates young souls looking for a sense of belonging in a confusing and tumultuous world. The fruits of your labor combined with life’s passions far too often fall short of expectations. Clouded by a sense of pure determination, one could become misguided. However, youthful ambitions triumph over a repressed society. Through the song, “Goin’ Nowhere Fast”, we have acknowledged our inner struggles and overcome them through an overwhelming sense of family and friendship.

What do you get when eclectic creativity gets twisted with diverse musical influences and incubates in an atmosphere of unrestrained inspiration? The hatching of The Inoculated Canaries. With The Inoculated Canaries you get a full on aural and visual package of brightly intense ingenuity and polished musicianship.

The New York foursome is rounded out by Michael Rubin on guitar and vocals, James Terranova on drums, Dylan Gross on bass, and Brian Sweeney on keys. With their diverse musical interests spanning from Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix to Punk Rock sensibility a la Green DayBlink 182Streetlight Manifesto, and Reel Big Fish, mixed with their formal jazz training and performance to the dramatic flair of musical theater, these guys bring a lot more to the table than anything categorizable, and it shows.

“The Canaries has felt like 10 different bands throughout its lifespan,” says Michael “We keep adding to our style because their are so many great influences we can learn from. I spend 8-9 hours a day with these jerks and it absolutely contributes to how tight our live shows are. I know what James is going to do before James even knows he’s gonna do it.”

Their debut EP, THE BLUE LAWS, was soon followed by the singles “DON’T BE LATE” and the acoustic version of “JERICHO”.

“Our songs come from personal experiences: beginnings and ends, loves and loss. Ultimately to experience as much as possible and to not take yourself too seriously” – The Inoculated Canaries.

Several live performances include Winterfest, opening for The Mowgli’s.

The band most recently announced the release of their long awaited follow up EP, TRYING TIMES with the unveiling of a colorful and irreverent music video for the track “COUNT ME OUT.”

The band’s mission is simple: to bring back ROCK! And while that’s a mission a lot of emerging artists are taking on, it’s one that this quartet is uniquely suited to addressing.

State of Illusion Releases Official Music Video for “Blind” Off of ‘Aphelion’

South Carolina rock quartet State of Illusion has released the highly anticipated music video for “Blind,” the newly remixed single off of their 2014 released LP, Aphelion. Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Blind” was directed and edited by Erez Bader of Silent Flight Productions.

“I wrote ‘Blind’ in the middle of the night roughly 10 years ago, but we still feel life and energy from it every time we play it. Those 10 years can definitely be felt on ‘Blind’ because the new mix takes tiny recordings from almost every member we’ve had over the years and subtly inserts them throughout the track. We included it on Aphelion because we knew that it was a song that needed to be heard. Despite originally promoting another song as the single for Aphelion, ‘Blind’ was the song that seemed to connect most with listeners, probably because of the back and forth volley of mellow and hard-hitting elements and personal lyrics written so that they can be applied to the listeners’ unique situations. That’s why we decided to team up with Silent Flight Productions to create a visual to go along with the music. Hopefully, the new version of ‘Blind’, along with the awesome video, will resonate with new listeners on an emotional level and give them a little taste of what State of Illusion is all about.” – Jacob Porter (vocals)

Life is often comprised of our reactions. Often, negatives can be turned into positives through the way we look at situations or how hard we are willing to work for what we love. At least, that’s the philosophy that Greenville, SC-based rock band State of Illusion has adopted.

Though the rock act has had many successes, including memorable performances with artists such as Staind (hand-selected by vocalist Aaron Lewis), ChevelleFlawSmile Empty SoulAustin John Winkler (ex-Hindervocalist), Like a StormFailure Anthem, and Stitched Up Heart, along with functions for DisturbedKillswitch EngageLacuna Coil, etc., State of Illusion has faced more than its fair share of adversity.

After releasing their most recent studio album, Aphelion (self-produced, self-engineered, and self-released), State of Illusion took another dose of their well-documented bad luck (see the documentary One More Song – A Decade of State of Illusion from their brand new DVD, State of Illusion – Live) through the loss of core-members. Though beautifully crafting Aphelion with only two members (Jacob Porter on vocals, guitar, piano, pedal steel, engineering, and editing and Josh Breland on bass, drums, guitar, and piano) and seeing a top 100 worldwide rock chart release, the immediate post-Aphelion lineup was not meant to be.

What began as a rag-tag group of hired-guns pulled from other local acts to fill in on an opening show for an early musical influence in the band Flaw, a mixture of hard work, dedication, positive outlooks, and a love for the music turned bad luck into the strongest line-up State of Illusion has ever had. Former guitarist Cameron Price, drummer Bryce Chism, and Solaristvocalist/guitarist Tom Carden on bass stepped up to help Porter when State of Illusion needed it most.

This line-up continued to assist State of Illusion throughout 2017 as, one by one, these temporary members dedicated themselves as permanent members of the band. While filling in admirably, Carden knew that he needed set his focus back on Solarist and allow room for a permanent bassist to cement themselves into the lineup. His parting gift was former Solarist bassist Brandon Rodgers.

Once the 4 piece was solidified, State of Illusion sought the creative minds of Silent Flight Productions’ director Erez Bader (The ContortionistVeil of MayaThe Dear Hunter) and VFX supervisor and producer Casey Crescenzo(vocalist of The Dear Hunter) to bring a visual representation of their single “Blind” (remixed by Greg Macklin of Ordinance) to life. The moody result is a perfect fresh start for State of Illusion, who plan to use this opportunity to introduce Aphelion to a new set of listeners they couldn’t reach before.

Aphelion stands out amongst its contemporaries. The album is complete, in every sense of the word, with its many textures and range of sonic landscapes. With soaring anthems, such as the radio-ready singles, “Blind” and “Find Yourself,” to heavy-yet-melodic tracks, “Over” and “The Price You Pay,” to quiet moments, highlighted in the reflective “Reach the End,” Aphelion covers a full spectrum of emotion.

State of Illusion, seasoned with experience, a solid and energetic line-up, a reinvigorated approach, and having met success on the road for the past two years, have just released their first DVD, State of Illusion – Live, and are hard at work writing the highly-anticipated follow-up to Aphelion.

Stereo Satellite Release Official Music Video for Debut Single “Glass Houses”

Newly formed rock band Stereo Satellite, featuring Lukas Rossi (Rock Star Supernova), Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob), John Moyer (Disturbed), and Jordan Cannata (Adrenaline Mob), has released the Official Music Video for their debut single, “Glass Houses.” Originally premiered on Loudwire, “Glass Houses” is the first single off of their new album tentatively set for April 2018 release. Fans can access exclusive content for the album release via the bands’ PledgeMusic campaign.

Stereo Satellite plays hard rock music that flirts with alternative rock influences. By melding hook-filled melodies within heavy guitar riffs and hard beats, the band shows their ability to compact a vast array of influence and experience into a signature sound with substance, style, and spirit. Mike Orlando and Lukas Rossi are the key architects behind the band’s vibrant, modern rock-inspired sound – powered by seamless songwriting adeptness that combines a story of both the joys and heartaches of life.

Mike Orlando is no stranger to heartaches, having recently been involved in a tragic accident on July 14, 2017 while on tour in Florida with his former band Adrenaline Mob. The crash occurred when a tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 and struck the band’s RV, van, and trailer, which resulted in the death of Adrenaline Mob bassist David Zablidowsky, tour manager Jane Train, and seriously injuring six others.

“Over the past recent months, I have learned a lot about how cathartic music can be, especially after going through such a heinous life-changing tragedy”, said Orlando. “It’s been a complete uphill battle in even trying to begin to heal physically and mentally. I have a long road ahead for sure and will have to undergo many more procedures and ongoing therapy.” Orlando adds, “I don’t think I’ll ever fully heal mentally but I’ve been moved to write songs again with my brother Lukas who I feel is an amazing songwriting partner, and start this new band along with my brothers John Moyer and Jordan Cannata. I find it really helps me to cope and I can’t wait to share all the music we’ve written and start touring again full-time.”

John Moyer admits to having mixed feelings about the band being dubbed a supergroup. “We hate the supergroup thing because it’s a new band in its own right,” Moyer says. “But I think it’s important for us to say we’ve been around the rock music scene for a long time and in various ways. Stereo Satellite is a new beginning for us all, and I’m looking forward to sharing our new music with the fans very soon.”

Lukas Rossi concurs, saying, “I can’t wait to release our new songs and perform them live with these awesome guys. Regarding the supergroup thing, look I don’t care what you call us, just call us!”

Ornimental Release Lyric Video for “Love Thy Enemy”

Ft. Lauderdale, FL based metal band Ornimental has released the Lyric Video for their single, “Love Thy Enemy.” Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Love Thy Enemy” is available to stream and download online.

“Love Thy Enemy is about somebody that betrayed someone so bad that they could start dedicating their life to start a war with them. It could start as revenge with that prideful, arrogant person, but decided that the righteous path of love is better for both sides. ” – Ornimental

Click HERE to Stream / Download “Love Thy Enemy” Online

Ornimental is a band with a mission, a mission to put the groove punch, originality, and excitement back into metal, where it belongs. The name itself, Ornimental, comes from the Latin prefix Orni (to celebrate or decorate) and the root word mental (of intelligence or insanity), and true to form, Ornimental delivers an intelligent, possessed sound that celebrates the origins and foundations of hard rock and metal alike.

Harkening back to heavy metal legends like MegadethVan HalenMetallicaArch Enemy, and Pantera, famously led by deceased guitar legend Dimebag Darrell, Ornimental doesn’t rest on writing and simply producing crunchy, appetizing, complex guitar licks. Oh, they produce hair raising Hard Rock at its most fundamental level, rest assured, but the song writing and arrangement has a classical, even groove edge Blues, reminding the listener of a perfect marriage of Eddie Van HalenZeppelin, and Beethoven.

As if that marriage weren’t appealing enough, a deeper blues undercurrent exists in the band’s original music, paying homage to Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton, the skilled David Gilmore of Pink Floyd, and many other legends, yet Ornimental’s music has a modern influence which is subtly inherited from avant garde bands like DisturbedFive Finger Death Punch, and Trivium.

Ornimental was founded by lead guitarist Danny Perry and drummer Julio. Danny has been writing unique, intoxicating original music for over half a decade. Danny Perry’s admiration for Beethoven lead him to be the Lead Guitarist for the Miami Dade Film Gaming Orchestra which won an Emmy in 2016. By absorbing the classical structures of the masters together with his passionate influences such as Eddie Van Halen, Dave MustaineKirk HammetStevie Ray Vaughan, Dimebag Darrell, Jimi Hendrix,and Eric Clapton. Danny’s powerful voice is only trumped by his dedication to performance and skilled guitar playing. Danny has been offered music scholarships by renowned music schools.

As a graduate of the world renown SAE Institute in Audio Engineering Danny’s focus on detail to music brings you closer to the songs. He was born an engaging front-man, though, and has found a niche harmonizing with talented rhythm guitarist and back-up vocals from Ariel. Julio’s skill as a percussionist empowers the emotion you feel every minute. Topping it off is bassist Sully who brings a skill that resonates in his playing. Together they have successfully brought the band to life in the past few years.

Since rounding out the band, Ornimental’s popularity has skyrocketed, as the band has performed in the more chic, popular venues, and even being called on to play at the world famous Revolution Live. Most recently performed on the same bill as Children of BodomDeath AngelTYRNon PointHavokLacuna CoilEye EmpireSid Wilson from Slipnot with Keen & Sid, OverkillScott Soto, and more. They’ve had interviews with Horn’s Up RockNew Times Magazine, and even been featured on Blabbermouth Magazine. They had airplay on national radio and now a larger audience is demanding their music be played on radio. Ornimental’s goal is to take over the metal universe, playing in large venues, opening for the big boys like Metallica and Van Halen, and more of their many influences.
