Adema is a post-grunge, alternative metal band with heavy electronica influence who began their musical adventure together in 1998 in Bakersfield and as their original lineup of Dave DeRooKris KohlsMike RansomTim Fluckey, and Mark Chavez released full-length albums AdemaUnstable, and EP Insomniac’s Dream. During this time they found themselves sharing the stage alongside of some of rock’s biggest acts at the time: Linkin ParkOzzy OsbourneGodsmackStone Temple PilotsRob ZombieSystem of a Down, and Korn, just to name a few.

After Unstable, the band found itself facing major roadblocks in their future. The most impactful being the departure of two founding members, lead vocalist Mark Chavez and guitarist Mike Ransom. Remaining members Tim, Dave, and Kris showed exceptional resilience through the years, managing to secure a second record deal with Earache Records, continuing to tour, and releasing full-length records Planets and Kill the Headlights, followed by EP Topple the Giants. Refusing to let down the fans after the departure of Chavez, they first played and recorded with vocalist Luke Caraccioliand then Bobby Reeves, with guitarist Tim Fluckey eventually taking up the vocal duties of the band.

After years of perseverance, 2010 brought us their first reunion as the original 5 members. Chavez left the group, and then again in 2017 they got back together until Chavez refused several tour offers, finally making it known to the group he no longer had interest in singing Adema songs, touring, or recording. All hope seemed to be lost. The original singer was no longer an option and only someone AMAZING would be good enough to fill the vacuum left behind. That’s when Kris Kohls called long-time friend of the band, Ryan Shuck (Orgy, Julien-K, Dead By Sunrise), and the beginning of a new era begun. Sharing Adema’s love for electronica-infused rock, this merger is bringing about a new commitment to Adema’s roots. Being able to front both his band, Julien-K, and Adema would not have been possible without the full support of both bands, both of which enjoy history and friendship together that has spanned several years. With a major tour announced for the Fall of 2019, it wouldn’t be too hard to imagine that there will be some amazing new music coming in the near future as well. Stay tuned!

CARPATHIA Releases Lyric Video for “Sacrifice” Off of Upcoming ‘1912’ EP

Boston based Alternative Progressive Metal CARPATHIA has released the lyric video for, “Sacrifice,” off of their upcoming EP, 1912, due out 6/10/2019.

1912 the EP is the culmination of three years of growth and hard work, loss and repair once as a band and now, as a family.” – CARPATHIA

 2170036-1

A band is not created solely from a group of people deciding to get into a room and write music together, it’s not that simple. Once you’ve found that ‘sound’, it becomes impossible to ignore that you’re now bound to these songs you find yourself pouring every last drop of blood, sweat, and tears into. You will, quite literally, fight for them. It is with those individuals that make up a truly unique and inspiring band. Carpathia and its members have a history, and it all started with Bobby Drinkwater. As an East Boston, Massachusetts native, Bobby has been consistently involved in music, and in 2016 started a nameless band with long term goals. Bobby keeps the conversations short, but has so much to say behind his instruments. Bobby plays multiple instruments including guitar, violin, piano, and drums. Bobby first found co-member Jason Barsotti to join his new project. Born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts, Jason first picked up his drum sticks at the age of 10, and his long term practice has lead him to a fast paced, hard hitting sound that resonates. Jason’s humble and pleasant personality quickly takes a backseat when he steps behind his drumkit. Bobby had continued his search in bandmates close to home when joining forces with Andrew Miller, the two had met and worked together in a previous project back in 2014. Andrew is from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but has resided in Lynn, Massachusetts since 2013. Throughout Andrew’s life he has been surrounded by family and friends who have been hitting stages in music and comedy. It is no wonder that Andrew’s charismatic humor filled personality would follow in similar footsteps. Andrew has played guitar long term in a number of bands both in North Carolina, and Massachusetts. He had transitioned to playing bass in 2013 for a previous project and found his own unique sound in the process. These three musicians had wrote and played music together between 2016 and 2017 as an instrumental band while trialing a number of potential vocalists. Finally, in January 2017, Samantha Alice of North Kingstown, Rhode Island joined as the last vital part of this project. Samantha brought her strong vocal skills and even stronger personality to the group. Samantha’s history in singing has taken her from talent competitions to all state choir, and beyond. Samantha was first approached by Bobby after meeting at a local show and sparked an interest in trying out for his new project. It took no time at all for the solidification of this band to come to completion and Carpathia was officially named as such on April 22, of 2017.

AUTOPILOT Releases Official Music Video for “Undisguised”

band photo live

Canadian Alternative Rock Band AUTOPILOT has released the official music video for their single, “Undisguised.” Directed by Kevin Van Witt, “Undisguised” is off of the band’s latest album, Afterglow.

“We don’t need these walls between us!” lyrics in “Undisguised” from Autopilot, a song that bridges the feelings of the times with modern rock vibes. It’s a song that questions why do we put up walls when love is what we really want.

Player

“After 20 consecutive shows on tour we had a few days off in NYC to shoot the video for Undisguised. Director Kevin Van Witt captured the contrast of the lyrics with empty streets in a condensed and often chaotic city.” – Autopilot

2. Weightless

4. Living Dead

Over the last few years, Canadian alternative rock band Autopilot has become a staple in the Saskatoon indie music scene. Known for their thoughtful lyrics, powerful hooks, dynamic stage show, and obsessive hard work, they somehow seem to effortlessly walk the line between passionate art and massive appeal. Over the course of 3 full-length records, and one EP, they’ve become road warriors, touring relentlessly across Canada and the US. They’ve been praised for their tireless work ethic by publications like Canadian Musician Magazine, who called them “quite possibly one of the hardest working bands in the country.”

Autopilot’s highly anticipated new record Afterglow, their most impressive and accessible record to date, produced by legendary Saskatchewan producer, S.J. Kardash, and backed by their most ambitious marketing campaign yet, finds the band reaching for bigger sounds, bigger ideas, and much bigger audiences. The release of their new single “Undisguised” following the success of preceding singles “Living Dead” and “Weightless”, is proof positive of this growing momentum.

Marlon Harder, the driving creative force behind Autopilot, has a knack for finding beauty in simple moments, and hope in the challenges life tends to bring. Inspired by the early writing of Modest Mouse, he seemed to know very quickly what he wanted to do in life. After the release and College radio buzz of their first record Now It’s Time You Know What We’re Losing For, unexpected illness struck, effectively putting the band on the back burner for the foreseeable future. But he never quit writing. Health improved, lineups changed, and in 2013 they teamed up with S.J. Kardash for the release of Diamond Rough, a sophomore full-length forged in the fires of struggle, faith, and growing maturity. The record widely expanded their media exposure across North America; in print, online, commercial rock radio, CBC, podcasts, and through licensing placement on major US television networks.

Their 2015 release, Desert Dreams, reunited the band with Kardash, and represented a significant leap forward in both the ever expanding sound, and rapidly growing fan base the band had built strongly upon with 2013’s Diamond Rough. Along with debuting on Earshot’s Top 50 chart, Desert Dreams received heavy rotation on The Verge, Sirius XM’s Iceberg Radio, and garnered the attention of New York’s prestigious CMJ; while securing the band showcases at Toronto’s CMW and Indie Week festivals, AYE Fest in Cincinnati, Fairfield Revival Festival in Minnesota, and opening doors to tour extensively in the United States.

Autopilot has always been a dedicated touring band. In support of Diamond Rough, Desert Dreams, and the 2017 release of the single “Hurricane” / “Crooked Lines“, the band spent countless months on the road touring across Canada and the United States. These tours have included stops at Jersey Shore Festival, Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and a mainstage performance at Mesa Music Festival in Arizona supporting hard rock legends P.O.D. October 2018 marked the release of Afterglow, which chartered in the top 200 on the NACC North American College Charts as well as specialty radio in the US.

The future is truly wide open for Autopilot. Everything they’ve learned is on the table for 2019 while they continue to promote the release of Afterglow. They are casting their net wider, and going all in. Never content to sit still or play it safe, they’ve crafted a remarkable live show, and plan on spending as much time over the next year as possible, getting the new songs in front of as many new fans as they possibly can.

SHE MADE ME DO IT Releases Official Music Video for “Broken Morning”

img-1497

Electronic Rock Duo SHE MADE ME DO IT has released the achingly dark official music video for their single, “Broken Morning,” taken from their recently released EP, Drenched. Originally premiered on mxdwn.com, “Broken Morning” is directed and edited by Duncan Catterall.

“‘Broken Morning’ arose from an unsettling space between anger, sadness and disbelief..A truly dark place filled with bittersweet melodies. The sound of a heart breaking in a cyclone of lost love and pain.”” – Shaheena Dax (Vocals and Bass)

Player

“The 80’s New Wave influences are unmistakable in this one. I immediately was reminded of The Church with the intro (“Under the Milky Way”). I hear a great deal of influence from The Cure and the like as well. The way that Dax almost breathes the verses, then changes to a harder voice singing her warning for the chorus, is very intriguing. This, by far, is my favorite on the entire EP”. – Carox Rox – BANGS! Music & Entertainment

Broken Morning is a skillful manipulator of ears and appetite even as it instantly reveals a much warmer and calmer nature. That is no chain to an instinctive catchiness and creative eagerness though, the song devilishly impossible to resist joining in with especially when faced with one contagion laced chorus and again a swinging energy which enlivens the body and spirit of song and listener alike. There is something, if right now indefinably, familiar to the track but a hue which only adds to its compelling design and persuasion”. – The RingMaster Review

THRILLSVILLE Releases Dark Electronic Single, “Second Sleep”

Thrillsville Second Sleep Cover 01

LA based Dark Synth artist THRILLSVILLE has released the debut track off of his upcoming, yet to be named album, “Second Sleep.”

“Reworking and reinterpreting a song wasn’t a stretch for me. It’s kind of like taking a theme and varying it when I’m composing for film, TV or video games. It’s fun to take the same source material and put it in a completely different musical world. I’ve always loved Stolen Babies’ version of ‘Second Sleep‘ and getting Dominique from SB to add background vocals to my version made it really special for me. It wouldn’t have been right without her. I feel like the dreamy and moody quality of the original rock version translated even better with this dark dance version.” – THRILLSVILLE

PLayer

“Hot off the presses, Thrillsville has a new single called ‘Second Sleep,’ and it may be my new favorite song. Almost impossible to pigeonhole, this track is equal parts industrial tinged Stabbing Westward and Sisters of Mercy-esque Goth rock. That’s a poor attempt to categorize what Thrillsville has pulled out with this song, but wherever it’s meeting in the middle is a sonically perfect place and I want more of it. I can only hope that this is a teaser of things to come!” – Echosynthetic

Thrillsville Pic 1

Thrillsville is the industrial music/ dark wave solo project of Rani Sharone. Known for his dark cabaret band Stolen Babies, Sharone has collaborated and performed with Puscifer, Marilyn Manson, and TV/film composer Tyler Bates. A fellow in the Sundance Film Composers Lab Sharone also produced music for highly acclaimed Films/TV Shows including, Samurai Jack, Ray Donovan, American Ultra, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, and more.

Second Sleep,” the first single off Thrillsville’s upcoming album, is following his horror themed debut ep, Haunt Music, which spawned the Claymation videos for “In the Hall of the Chainsaw King,” and “Lycanthrope” as well as the 3-D animated video for “Sirens.”

“Conjuring up tantalizing and warped soundscapes…Thrillsville’s music sounds like it’s been ripped directly from a melted B-movie VHS tape. It’s ghoulish, grizzly, and just plain great” – Phoenix New Times

“A treasure of an EP … ‘Haunt Music’ is like watching a horror movie with your eyes closed. Images of Freddy Krueger, Jason, Michael Myers fill your mind as the rough guitar tones, the creepy synths, and sinister beats wash over you.” – Victim of Sound

“…manic carnival music” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Punctuated with a superb eighties influenced instrumental score from Rani Sharone, […] has an irresistible charm that sweeps over you” – Biff Bam Pop!
