DARK BELOW Release Official Lyric Video for “Halo”

HALO logo

Columbia, MO based Hard Rock band DARK BELOW has released the official lyric video for their new single, “Halo.”

player

“The song was written really quickly, which is odd for us. There is stuff we’ve been messing around with for years that we can’t seem to make into something we really like, so it was nice to have Halo come together so easily.

We originally wrote the song in a different tuning and stopped playing it for a while after we went away from using multiple tunings for live shows. I couldn’t quite hit all of the notes when we played it in our usual tuning (drop C), so we changed the melody in the chorus a bit to accommodate that. I wasn’t sure it would work, but I think it ended up turning out better after the changes.” – DARK BELOW

Ashes to Omens is a 5 piece hard rock band from Athens, Ga. They formed in late July 2017 and have influences from all backgrounds of rock and roll. They’re currently booking gigs in the southeastern U.S., and went on numerous tours in 2018.

The band quickly released their debut single, “The Screws,” in August of 2017 and accompanied by a music video in February 2018. Their self-titled debut album hit the charts in June 2018 and catapulted them to the number one position for Rock on Reverbnation in Athens where they have held consistently for 13 months.

Not long after the release of their album, it was featured in Georgia Music Spotlight as being “energetic, straight ahead hard rock”. Full of monolithic mid-tempo hard rock riffs, anthemic (Slash-esque) guitar solos, and gritty, commanding vocals with the ideal level of attitude and energy for the genre. As well as getting a stellar review from Life in General.

In July-August 2018, the band opened for legendary Cinderella front-man, Tom Keifer to a sold out crowd at Innovation Amphitheater to an over-welmingly positive response and left with the crowd on their feet. They have also played gigs with several national acts, including Hallowpoint (Missouri) and Demon In Me (Cali). They are currently working on their 2nd album with the incredible Led Belly Studios in Dawsonville, GA with master producer Matt Washburn. Ledbelly is responsible for several releases from national acts, MastadonArtemis PyleLegion X and many more.

“I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

Southeast Kansas hard rock band Take The Day has teamed up with engineer/producer Chris Dawson in preparation to make some big waves in the Rock world. The hard rock quartet, consisting of Kenny Waring on vocals, Matt Circle on drums, Adam Easom on guitar, and Rick Harrington on bass recently wrapped up their 2019 Fire Inside Tour which included dates in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado.

In 2011 Take The Day recorded their first EP, Stitches, with Ed Rose at Black Lodge Studios in Eudora, KS. This EP produced the band’s first single, “Enemy Lines (Evan’s Song),” for which the band received a nomination for Best New Music Video in 2014 at the Midwest Rock Awards; this quickly brought them attention as a major contender in the Midwest Rock scene. In 2017, Take The Day began working at legendary Aphotic Studios in Derby, KS. Over the next year and a half, the band would write and record their next project with the help of Chris Dawson and Jimmie Beattie of the band Seasons After.

Later that year, the band’s song “Take Everything” broke onto the Billboard Active Rock Airplay Chart. Their next single, 2018’s “Matches and Knives” and their “Song for the Broken” in early 2019 met with both critical and fan acclaim. The band is now on the verge of releasing their latest powerful project, a song titled, “Falling Apart”, in mid-October of 2019. “We tend to write a lot about heartache and loss. We’ve all been there, and we believe it helps us heal.”, says Kenny.

To have the opportunity to not only record a song that is important to us, but to have Corey Glover himself come in and perform on that track, it was truly a special moment. He was so easy and fun to work with and the final product is really something that we are extremely proud of” – JIMMY WOOTEN

Gears Promo Final Edits 55 1 of 1

Miami based hard/heavy rock act GEARS isn’t your average start-up garage band. Despite being confronted with a near disastrous setback at the cusp of their debut, headlining tour, jarring line-up changes, and financial challenges, the band has persevered and rebuilt.

Founded in February 2014, Trip 6 (Urban Rebel), Eli Parker (Endo), Tommy Herres (SCARLET CARSON) and Jimmy Wooten (SKINMASK) were all looking for new projects as their old ones had run their course.

We all wanted to do something more modern, but still rang true to our influences. Something that we could aggressively market and tour on. So, we all met up in Miami after months of talking about doing something together and what came out was the first EP, “Set in Motion.”

They released Set in Motion in May 2014, immediately launching into their first headline run with support from I-Exist. Just three days into the tour, their equipment trailer disconnected, resulting in a massive, horrific accident; not only did they lose their gear, but the tour van was totaled and the band members sustained serious injury. In spite of this tremendous blow, the group endured and continued the tour without missing a beat.

Later it developed that two of the founding members were unable to continue, leaving the band reeling and having to replace them with skilled, compatible substitutes:

“I was talking with a mutual friend, Joe Taback (12 Gauge Embrace) about needing a guitar player for GEARS because we let go of Eli and he suggested Bobby Thomas. I called him and showed him the songs and he was ready to go. As far as bass, I knew Chris from when Needlemouth was a thing out in Cali and I always liked his playing and he was super laid back & cool. I knew both of these dudes were definite upgrades at their instruments and were a better fit personality wise than what we had to deal with previously.”

In June 2015, Wooten and Six teamed with Corey Lowery (Saint AsoniaStuck MojoStereomudDark New Day) and Troy Mclawhorn (EvanescenceSeetherDark New Day) on their new EP Pride Comes Before the Fall, and announced the addition of new members Bobby Thomas and Chris Dorame. They hit the road for their Riser Tour, once again with I-Exist, in July, wrapping up the run in September, but kept the momentum going with the digital release and lyric video for their debut single off of Pride Comes Before the Fall, “Face Down”. The band rounded out the year with the release of their much anticipated sophomore EP on November 10th, with both headlining tours and a support slot with Trapt slated for 2017.

After a very successful tour in 2017 with Seasons After and Bridge to Grace, GEARS has released a new single and video for “KING.” Once again, joined by Corey Lowery in the studio, GEARS continues to evolve. Boasting an even heavier sound with groove and aggression, they set out for Headlining Dates as well as Support Slots with NonpointUpon a Burning Body and will round out their 2018 Summer/Fall Tour Dates with the last of 3 legs with All That Remains concluding at the end of September.

After touring much of 2018 with All That Remains, GEARS has shifted focus to releasing more music. Their first 2019 offering will be “TANGO YANKEE’ which features LAJON WITHERSPOON of SEVENDUST.

GEARS is currently in the studio with Corey Lowery working on some more new music and will have upcoming tour dates to announce for 2020 soon.

We’re still moving forward and, despite everything that has been an obstacle in the short time we’ve been a band, everything still keeps growing and getting better.
