Los Angeles based hard rock band VYCES started in the summer of 2014 when Chicago native Dave Naruszewicz was looking to work on a new project following the disbandment of his former group Heart-Set Self-Destruct. After years of touring with such bands as Filter, Hell Yeah, Volbeat, Pop Evil, etc.., he realized it was time for change. He spent time working with other musicians in the Chicago music scene looking to feed his passion as an artist but he did not find what he was looking for. Dave’s vision was not deterred, so he decided to reach out to longtime friend and drummer, Russell Ray (formerly of Old Fashioned Beatdown).

Dave began flying to Los Angeles from Chicago twice a month to build something new, original, and undeniable. Russ then reached out to guitarist, Shawn Patterson (also formerly for Old Fashioned Beatdown). The three began writing demos together and also sending ideas back and forth over the internet which ultimately became the foundation of VYCES.

After a few trips to LA they decided to go into the studio with producer Augustus Cryns (Butcher Babies, Stitched Up Heart, etc..), and also featured Mark James Klepaski (Formerly of Breaking Benjamin, and Lifer) on bass. After a year of writing and recording the band had finished 22 songs of true emotion, and power. Being compared to such artists as Chevelle, Korn, and Red, they have sonically created a solid blend of active rock and metal. Dave describes the soul of the songs as exploring the darker side of human emotion and behavior saying “It’s something everyone can relate to because everyone has experienced some form of hurt, betrayal, weakness, hate, addiction, and/or lack of acceptance. It’s also the fuel that drives us to become stronger, get better, and overcome the flaws we’ve built in our minds.”

In October 2016 VYCES released their debut EP “DEVILS” and released a music video for the single “DEVIL” shot by Ron Underwood. From October through November of that year the band embarked on a the HELLRZZR TOUR which trekked across the U.S performing in 29 cities in 33 days.

VYCES spent the beginning of 2017 working on new material in between hitting the road on three national tours playing shows with Otherwise, Powerman 5000, etc.. In June 2017, the band released it’s first radio single titled “NOCTURNAL” accompanied by another music video shot by Ron Underwood, and features Butcher Babies own Carla Harvey. ‘Nocturnal’ reached #38 on the Mediabase Active Rock Charts making it their first top 40 single.

VYCES is currently preparing for 2018 with the release of their highly anticipated new single, ‘THIN LUCK’ which impacts national radio on 02/06/18 and will be on tour all year long.

WILL THOMAS REED Releases Single, “Home Is Where the Bar Is,” Off of Upcoming ‘To Whom It May Concern…’ EP

“Home Is Where the Bar Is” Originally Premiered on Country Music News
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

Track List:
1. Rumors
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.
