Blacklite District follows no rules. With sounds of everything from electronic, EDM and hip hop, to hard rock and alternative, the band truly stands out from the pack of what has becomes today’s generic sounding “Active Rock”. Formed in 2012 by Kyle Pfeiffer and Roman James, ages 12 and 11 respectively, the band grew organically in their local music scene through the years to come. In 2011, BLD was discovered by Grammy Award-winning producer, Stephen Short (Paul McCartney, Queen), which resulted in a 10 day recording session at the world’s largest residential recording studio, Sonic Ranch, just outside of Mexico in Tonillo, TX. The group re-located to Los Angeles and played some of the most famous venues in the world for the remainder of 2011.

In 2013, the group released “With Me Now” as the lead from it’s debut album Worldwide Controversy. “With Me Now” immediately went to #1 on SiriusXM channels Octane and Faction, hit the Top 40 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart (#32), and sold 100,000 copies. BLD went on a very successful US tour with Saving Abel in Jan-Apr 2014, with 26 of those shows SOLD OUT. After a legal battle with their management and record label, Blacklite District went on hiatus in late 2014.

On August 23, “The Struggle” was release to radio and To Whom It May Concern went for pre-order at digital retailers. Revolver Magazine premiered the music video for “The Struggle” on August 25. The band also announced a 41 date tour called “The Struggle Is Real Tour”. Blacklite District released a Nightcore remix of “The Struggle” to YouTube on September 6, which got over 2,000,000 plays and resulted in the single breaking the Top 40 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator chart at #36.

One month later, on October 6, the group released a Nightcore remix of “We Are The Danger” which got over 400,000 plays on YouTube. A couple of weeks later, the band released “Broken Souls” to radio, as well as a Nightcore remix which resulted in 500,000 plays and hitting #30 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator. This was the second song in the month of October to break the Top 40 (along with “The Struggle.”)

“The Ghost of You and Me” was released as a music video and a Nightcore remix on December 28, 2016. The song was yet again a success for Blacklite District resulting in 400,000.

On January 20, 2017, BLD released “Living In A Nightmare” as the first single from upcoming album Instant Gratification. With a coinciding Nightcore release, “Living In A Nightmare” broke the Top 25 on the BDS Indicator chart, marking the bands highest spot in chart history. The song has been streamed over 250,000 times.

On February 24, famed radio DJ Lou Brutus posted the bands video for “Cold As Ice”, which was released the same day. The song scored a whopping 350,000 streams in its first week alone, and as of May 2017, has over 3.5 million combined views on YouTube. “Cold As Ice” serves as the second single from Instant Gratification. In the summer of 2017, “Cold As Ice” was added to Spotify’s “Rock Hard” playlist, and was put into rotation on SiriusXM’s alternative channel Faction. In October, “Cold As Ice” was added to rotation on SiriusXM Octane, and it’s Minecraft music video has over 10 million views on YouTube. There are about 4 videos about a Herobrine invasion with zombies and “nether watchers” and how the main character, a player in a blue suit, survives. There are 4 songs in total in the order of The Struggle, Cold as Ice, We are the Danger (possibly not from Blacklite District), and Just so you Know.

Blacklite District released their third album Instant Gratification on September 22, going Top 10 on Amazon’s Top Electronic Albums chart.

HOLD ON HOLLYWOOD Release Official Music Video for “Save Me”

Catch HOLD ON HOLLYWOOD LIVE with THE BUNNY THE BEAR, IT LIES WITHIN, and DEAD NOISE
Houston, TX Rock Band HOLD ON HOLLYWOOD has released the official music video for the title track off of their 2016 released EP, Save Me. Directed, Filmed, and Edited by Blake Ralston at Out of Mind Imaginations, “Save Me” introduces fans to HOH’s unique live experience in advance of their tour run with The Bunny The Bear, It Lies Within, and Dead Noise.

Player

“When we were just getting Hold On Hollywood started, we were writing out a lot of different ideas to try and find our sound and get together a strong collection of songs we were proud of. ‘Save Me’ was one of those songs that just wrote itself. Everyone in the band contributed to its creation and the result was a raw, powerful, 7-minute epic that told a personal and relatable story. It has always connected with audiences and continues to be a crowd favorite night after night.

For the video, we wanted to try something a little different. We wanted to put out a lyric video for ‘Save Me’ but also felt it was important to capture the raw and personal essence of the song in the imagery. Our longtime photographer/videographer Blake Ralston came up with the idea of shooting our live performance of the song at Swan Dive, a small club in Austin, and cut the lyrics in over that footage. Everything you see in the video was captured in one take, as we performed the song live. The end result is raw, real, and personal…just like ‘Save Me‘ is, and we love that.” – Hold On Hollywood

Hold On Hollywood is a rock band based out of Houston, TX. Their sound combines powerful vocals, massive guitars, unforgettable melodies, relatable lyrics, and infectious pop hooks that will have you singing along before the first chorus ends.

Since debuting in April 2015, Hold On Hollywood has built a dedicated fan base through their steady stream of live shows in Southeast Texas, Louisiana, and have begun venturing out on tours across the US. Notable acts that Hold On Hollywood has performed with include:

– Bon Jovi
– Steel Panther
– Drowning Pool
– Saving Abel
– Framing Hanley
– Red Sun Rising
– Gemini Syndrome
– Black Tide
– Burn Halo
– SycAmour
– Super Bob
– Dellacoma

2018 is stacking up to be Hold On Hollywood’s biggest year yet, and began with their winning the 94.5 The Buzz/Live Nation contest to open for Bon Jovi’s “This House Is Not For Sale” tour date in Houston, TX. This once in a lifetime opportunity put the band in front of an audience of 18,000+ fans at Houston’s Toyota Center, and led to Hold On Hollywood’s debut single “The Chase” landing in rotation on Houston’s biggest Modern Rock station “94.5 The Buzz”. That performance with Bon Jovi led to the band being added to the upcoming 94.5 Bud Light Roast in July with Blue October, Awolnation, Theory of a Deadman, and Robert DeLong.

Hold On Hollywood just released their newest music video for their debut EP’s title track Save Me and is currently out on tour with The Bunny The Bear, It Lies Within, and Dead Noise on the East Coast. Stay up to date with the band at holdonhollywood.com

Steven J. Vertun Releases Official Music Video “Radio”

Steven J. Vertun (www.stevenJvertun.com) has released the second music video, “Radio”, off of his February 2017 released album Ghost, Shadow and Sun. “Radio” was directed by Matt Zane and expands upon the ongoing discussion on the destructive impact of technology.

I wrote and created “Radio” the song and later the accompanying video, to bring consideration to the destructive nature of social technology to society in general. The isolation, friction, stimuli overload amidst the relentless clatter and clang is overwhelming social graces and human to human interaction. That said, the video demonstrates a way out and above the chaos. – Steven J Vertun

Born and raised in the NY/NJ region of the US, a “behaviorally challenging” 5-year-old is presented with the choice of choosing any instrument he’d like to learn to play as the latest volley from an exhaustive list of attempts to “get him under control”. Said chaotic child picks the accordion because he likes the complexity of all the buttons, knobs and keys. Kid learns the keys; the “sedating” thing fails spectacularly. Music creation and playing does become his very best friend however and highly contributes towards keeping him out of prison and remaining vertical during his formative years.

Steve switched to guitar at the age of fifteen. Upon having a grand total of five chords under his belt, he started his first band, Attic (the band rehearsed in the loft of an old barn). Over the next several years, he and his mates worked on their chops and played out whenever and wherever they could find a few electrical outlets…the drinking age of 21 limiting opportunities but inspiring creative gigs and venues. Two weeks after graduating college, he loaded up his rusty old VW bug with a couple of beat up guitars, an old Fender Twin Reverb Amp, a sack (literally) of clothes, $731 of cash and blindly traveled to Orange County, California, having never been out of the tri-state area prior to this journey. Once there, he started the band Sparrow (culled from a wild sparrow he raised for 8 years) which trans-morphed into the alternative rock band Eye Savant for 18 years. Eye Savant established a large, OC based following over the years, playing frequently at the best venues in the area and occasionally venturing up to LA as well. They opened for many well-known artists such as Jeff BeckGreat WhiteStan RidgewayMolly Hatchett and several others while frequently headlining their own shows. Eye Savant disbanded in 2002 when two of the members moved to different parts of the country. Steve opted to continue on as a solo performer, bringing in a variety of excellent musicians as needed for recording puposes.

Steve has been crafting original rock material exclusively since he picked up his first guitar (actually since his first day on the accordion). His music is a blend of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s influenced alternative rock, progressing over the years but carrying forward the roots of each generation of music and adding to the next. The wide range of explorations covers acoustic ballads to medium paced excursions to high energy, wall of sound big bangs. Some of the bands he notes as being highly influential are SpringsteenPink FloydThe DoorsRushU2LiveLifeHouseFoo FightersSwitchfootSnow PatrolImagine Dragons and others. Does he sound specifically like any of the above influences? His response, “I don’t believe so. What I do know is that the music of these outstanding artists and others (inclusive of classical, Blues, and World Music), drop into this wide-open filter of my mind, mingle with my personal experiences, travel through the internal grist mill and come out in whatever manner and form that they do. Everyone will hear it in their own measure and how they personally relate the music and lyrics to their own unique experiences”.

In November of 2016, Steve completed his first music video to coincide with his latest CD release Ghost, Shadow and Sun. The video is tethered to the song “Ghost” from the new cd. It is an artistic, emotionally moving message piece based on the concepts of grief and redemption. The video premiered on http://www.antiheromagazine.com on January 13th, 2017 and iavailable on I-tunes. The entire CD will be available on the same sites on February 3rd, 2017 and will be available for purchase on I-tunes, CDbaby.com and most major music e-sites.

A minimum of 30% of all music sales revenues will be donated to a variety of organizations including St. Judes Hospital and Wounded Warriors.

KEEP on ROCKIN’!!!!!!
