Dispositions started out in 2015 as an internet project by guitarist, Ethan Massey. Soon after finding band members, Dispositions entered the studio to record their debut EP, Dead Era, which released in January 2017.

Dispositions then began playing local shows around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They then hit the studio in late 2017 to record with producer, Cory Brunnemann in San Antonio, TX to record two singles, one being a Linkin Park cover called “QWERTY” and the other called “Imitator,” which Dispo shot a music video for.

With the momentum of those singles Dispo started playing shows and going on runs with bands such as DevilDriverJinjerUpon a Burning BodyBury Your DeadDrowning PoolAttila and MANY more!
Adding a second guitarist in the mix in 2018, Dispo hit the studio again with Cory to record two more songs later that year, “Pitiful” and “For You.”

BLACKTOP MOJO Release Official Music Video for “Prodigal”

BTM HOB DFW CB-8974 edit

Texas based hard rock band BLACKTOP MOJO has released the official music video for “Prodigal,” off of their most recent LP, Burn The Ships.

Prodigal Player

“We had fun making the video with some of our good friends from our hometown acting out the main parts. We felt like the father-son dynamic in the video really reflected the song’s theme. The song is sort of autobiographical. It’s about the experience of growing up in a small town and always talking about ‘getting out’ one day. No matter where or how far you go, though, you always have a little bit of where you came from that you take with you.” – Matt James

A hard-driving Southern rock unit based out of Palestine, Texas, Blacktop Mojo’s fiery blend of post-grunge, classic rock, and metal falls somewhere between Soundgarden, Black Stone Cherry, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Founded in 2012 by frontman Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, the band eventually morphed into a five-piece with the additions of bass player Matt Curtis and guitarists Ryan Kiefer and Chuck Wepfer. They released their debut album, I Am, in 2014, followed by a heavy bout of touring that saw the group sharing the stage with a wide array of heavy hitters, including Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Candlebox, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Black Stone Cherry, Shaman’s Harvest, Pop Evil, Puddle of Mudd, Drowning Pool and many others.

In 2017, the band teamed up with Muscle Shoals producer Jimmy Johnson for their highly anticipated sophomore outing Burn the Ships. The album was released via the band’s label, Cuhmon Records, in March of that year to critical acclaim. The record yielded two Top 40 hits on the Billboard Active Rock charts, with singles, “Where The Wind Blows” (#27) and the band’s cover of Aerosmith classic, “Dream On” (#31)

Throughout the rest of 2017 and 2018, the band toured heavily around North America in support of their record, getting added to major rock festival bills such as River City Rockfest, Louder Than Life, Rock Allegiance, The 25th annual Rockfest, Shiprocked, and many more. The band continues to all live together in “The Mojo Mansion” in Palestine, writing songs, recording and preparing for their 3rd full-length studio album entitled “Under The Sun” for release in 2019.

VARNA Release Lyric Video for “The Craving”

VarnaTheCravingArt

Los Angeles Hard Rock Band VARNA has released the lyric video for their single, “The Craving.”

“We are extremely proud to release such high driven female powered beast as ‘The Craving’ for 2019. This song about the push and pull of primal emotions you have instantly with someone–that carnal desire–but it never transforms into what you would like. You are stuck with the craving. Sometimes we just want what we aren’t meant to have.” – VARNA

Player

“’The Craving”’hit my ears last Friday and I definitely had it on REPEAT all weekend. You should, too. Singer Tiana Woods once again knocks it out of the park, delivering a track that lyrically arrives just in time for Halloween. The hook is infectious, and the overall tempo would go great alongside a scene where the hero or heroine is running away from their obsessed would-be paramour.” –Amps & Green Screens

Led by vocalist and lead songwriter Tiana Woods, the daughter of legendary 80’s pop and soul singer Stevie Woods, VARNA is the only unsigned female fronted rock band with not one but TWO consecutively charting singles, “Living A Lie” and “Survival of the Fittest” to hit TOP 40 on Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Charts.

They have opened tours for major rocks acts such as Drowning Pool, Adelita’s Way, and Stitched Up Heart.

They won ‘People’s Choice’ at the North American Rock Independent Music Awards and are in the running for “The Craving” as ‘Best Hard Rock Song’ at the 19th Annual Independent Music Awards.

BLACKTOP MOJO Announce PledgeMusic Campaign to Fund Upcoming Album

BTM HOB DFW CB-8965

Texas based hard rock band BLACKTOP MOJO has announced PledgeMusic campaign to help fund their upcoming third full length album.

“We’ve been writing and cutting demos in preparation for the third record , and we’re really excited about the direction of the new material. We’re also thrilled to have so much support from our family of Fans and friends” – Blacktop Mojo

Promo Video

Fans can pre-order a selection of items including signed copies of the new album, exclusive t-shirts, fishing with the band, hangouts, and even listing their name in the album jacket.

“As independent artists, everything we do is fan-funded. We don’t have a record label loaning us a ton of money to make a record. With that, comes some financial pitfalls, but it also means NOBODY tells us how to make music for you guys and we think that’s pretty cool!”

When you think of the South Bronx, you don’t think of modern, melodic rock anthems, passionately aggressive vocals, heavy guitars, ripping solos, driving bass lines or pounding drums fills. However, that is exactly what Brand of Julez delivers night after night.

Brand of Julez was formed by brothers Julez Zamora (vocals/guitars) and Brandon Zamora (bass/backing vocals) in 2011 at the ripe old age of 16 and 13, Brand of Julez have climbed their way up the NYC ranks with a passion and fury that cannot be denied.

With the release of their debut EP in September 2012, Brand of Julez have relentlessly worked to bring their brand of heavy rock to the masses with incendiary performances at legendary venues like Webster Hall (The StudioThe Marlin Room, & The Grand Ballroom), The Gramercy TheaterThe Bowery BallroomMercury LoungeIrving Plaza and Starland Ballroom. Their powerful performances have brought them to share the stage with national recording artists like BuckcherryAce FrehleyPop EvilRed Sun RisingLynch MobGemini SyndromeKyngSons of TexasCrobotDrowning PoolAdrenaline ModWaylandBurn HaloOrianthiAlice CooperStitched Up HeartCycle of Pain, and Full Devil Jacket.

In 2016, Brand of Julez began working on recording new tracks. Working with the engineering talents of Joey Z (guitarist for Life of Agony), the mixing magic of Mike Ferretti at Architekt Music (Sevendust) and mastering perfection of Andy Van Dette at Engine Room Audio (SevendustMuseRush) led Brand of Julez to their self produce debut album FORWARD, which was officially released in June 2018.

With the addition of New Jersey’s Nick Kashmanian (lead guitar/backing vocals) and Frankie D’Esposito (drums) from Long Island, the BOJ family is complete and ready to take aim at the national spotlight. Recent US tours with OtepDoll SkinBobaflexPuddle of Mudd, and Texas Hippie Coalitionhave taken Brand of Julez around the country several times. A 35 date US tour in August/September of 2018 with Orgy and Motograter as well the release of a new single, will lead Brand of Julez back into the studio for their next musical offering.

Formed in 2010, Gemini Syndrome spent their formative days opening for bands on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. As their reputation within the L.A. hard rock scene grew, so did their audience. Their 2013 full-length debut, Lux, landed at #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and yielded the singles “Pleasure & Pain” and “Stardust.” The record’s release saw the Los Angeles heavy alternative band tour alongside everybody from Five Finger Death Punch to Device and perform at festivals such as Rock on the Range, Welcome to Rockville and more. After coming off the road in late 2014, Gemini Syndrome’s creative core vocalist Aaron Nordstrom, drummer Brian Steele Medina and bass player Alessandro “AP” Paveri released their 2016 second full-length, Memento Mori, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and spawned the hit single “Remember We Die,” which hit #1 on SiriusXM Octane. The band spent the majority of 2016 and 2017 on the road with bands such as In This Moment, Motionless In White, Avatar, Sevendust, Starset and Drowning Pool and are now headlining their “Synner Conversion Tour” in Summer 2018.
