BLACKTOP MOJO Release Official Music Video for “It Won’t Last”

It Won t Last Art

BLACKTOP MOJO has released the official music video for their single, “It Won’t Last,” off of their recently released LP, Under the Sun

The video was shot in Fort Worth, Texas at the Bodega bar by longtime friend and videographer Dustin Dow and our new friend, Larry Hinson, whom we met on the ‘Defy The Sun Tour’ with Otherwise.

It Won t Last Art

“‘It Won’t Last’ is about the fleeting feelings of a hookup. You have this intense connection with someone for such a short time, but then in the morning, you realize it was just an intoxicating moment.

We wanted to keep the video simple and more performance based this time around. This song in particular is very guitar driven, and we wanted to be able to showcase Chuck and Kiefer ripping it up.” – Matt James

Art

Player

“’Dark Divided’ comes from a place of confusion and heartache. In life you have moments where you don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak, and the anxiousness of not knowing the path you’re about to take is very much present in this song” – John Strickland (Vocals)

Advance Praise for Voodoo

“Voodoo is riveting, powerful, at times relentless and full of so many layers. It’s thoroughly enjoyable.” – Moments In Sound

“All in all, “Voodoo” is an amazing album that proves Lullwater will be force to be reckoned with in the rock world.” – Metal Anarchy

Voodoo is Lullwater’s heaviest and most explosive work to date, shot through with blinding glimpses of clarity and searing moments of passion.” – The RockPit

“If you want rock ‘n’ roll with heart, look no further. Voodoo is a must have album for any music fan.” – Rock Documented

Lullwater Poster Nirvana Style 2

For more than a decade, alt rockers Lullwater have been blazing their way to the top of the industry thanks to their gritty, Southern-infused sound and straight-up, raw performances.

Formed in 2007 in Athens, GA, the foursome was born from the indelible mark that the godfathers of grunge left on music. The convergence of this inspiration, mixed with a healthy helping of swagger, defines this critically acclaimed alternative rock band.

The group released its debut, self-titled album in 2012 to solid reviews and were immediately invited to join some of the biggest tours that same year, as well as had the single “Albatross” featured on Sirius XM Octane Radio. Since that time, Lullwater has spent the majority of their career on the road sharing the stage with such A-list acts as CandleboxTheory of a DeadmanFlyleafPassafireAmarantheButcher Babies, and more. The band released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Revival, in 2015, followed by a live EP, The Seattle Sessions, in 2017.

Voodoo, their latest effort and arguably their best work to date, was recorded at the end of 2017 in New Orleans at Marigny Studios by Swedish producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann, co-produced/engineered by Justin Davis, and mixed by Jakob Herrmann at top floor studios, is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release; this record promises an even bigger, more explosive sound that will shake you to your core.

SMALL TOWN TITANS Team Up with Matt James (BLACKTOP MOJO) for Stunning Cover of TEMPLE OF THE DOG Classic Hit Single, “Hunger Strike”

HighQualityPressPhoto

York, PA heavy rock band SMALL TOWN TITANS have paired front-man Phill Freeman with BLACKTOP MOJO’s Matt James on an extraordinary cover of the TEMPLE OF THE DOG classic hit, “Hunger Strike.”

“The stars aligned with this one. The fact that we were all able to pay tribute to our musical heroes, and record it live off the floor in one of the best studios in the country with two of the best producers in the world is something I think both of our bands can be proud of. We’re really grateful to Matt and Blacktop Mojo for lending their name and talents to this tribute. It was a magical experience.” – Phil Freeman (Vocals)

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 Fighters, Audioslave, 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 Roach, Black Stone Cherry, Pop Evil, and more.

By focusing on their engagement on 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.
