BHS Cover 3 CC

 

Austin, TX based Rock Band BLACK HEART SAINTS has released the official music video for the title track off of their 2017 released LP, Alive, which features a live performance of the foursome live.

“This video was shot during our performance opening for Steel Panther in Austin, Texas. It captures some of the intimate moments that you normally don’t see: loading in, setting up, etc. – all of the hard work that it takes to bring about a killer rock show.” – Black Heart Saints

The band just finished their most recent tour, The Road to Sturgis Tour 2018, where they performed at the 78th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, as well as opened for Faster Pussycat on August 19th, and will be supporting Slash & Myles Kennedy Featuring the Conspirators on September 24th.

Dangerous & dirty, with a distinct groove steeped in classic rock, yet with a modern edge, Black Heart Saints gives fans exactly what they want – rock god vocals catapulted over explosive, memorable riffs – leaving legions of the rock ‘n’ roll faithful yearning for more.

After debuting at SXSW in 2014, this powerhouse quartet has been building a solid reputation as a support act for national touring bands such as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Nonpoint, Coheed and Cambria, Filter, POD, The Toadies, and more.

The soaring vocals of front-man Josh Ross have drawn comparisons to Myles Kennedy and Chris Cornell. While the band is influenced by the likes of Mötley Crüe, Guns ‘N Roses, and other legendary Hard Rock acts, the commanding presence of Black Heart Saints’ live show brandishes an updated take on the genre.

Quickly conquering some of the biggest stages and festivals in the United States, Black Heart Saints has built an impressive resume, and has been recognized as one of the nation’s top emerging rock acts:

– Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Headliner
– Austin Chronicle Music Awards: Top 10 Best New Bands
– Austin Music Foundation Artist of the Month, 2017
– San Antonio’s Fiesta Oyster Bake Headliner
– SXSW Performer
– Buffalo Trace Battle of the Bands Grand Prize Winner
– ESPN X Games Austin Performer

In 2014, Black Heart Saints represented their hometown at the ESPN X Games in Austin. 2015 kicked off with key performances during South by Southwest Festival, Texas Rockfest, and Fiesta Oyster Bake in San Antonio. The band also went back to the studio to record a string of upcoming singles produced by Omar Vallejo at Austin’s renowned 512 Studios.

After debuting their first official music video for the hit single “Touch The Sky” on MTV, VEVO, and YouTube, Black Heart Saints is poised to launch a memorable international career with ambitions to dominate stages across the globe. Half-way through 2016, the band gained nationwide airplay on Sirius XM’s Octane and Faction channels.

In 2017, the band received two major accolades: Black Heart Saints was chosen as Austin Music Foundation’s Artist of the Month, and received a spot in the top 10 Best New Bands in Austin Chronicle’s Austin Music Awards for 2016-2017.

The band’s first full-length release – ALIVE – was soon followed by the Road to Sturgis Tour 2017, which put Black Heart Saints’ charismatic live performance to the test when the band took the stage at the world-renowned motorcycle rally, attended by over 500,000 bikers from all around the globe.

Foreshadowing a successful 2018, Black Heart Saints embarked on an extensive tour to the West Coast beginning in January, which included a highlight performance at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood, California. Throughout the summer, the band was tapped to support some of the biggest names in rock — both new and old, including Steel Panther, Dokken, Jackyl, as well as upcoming arena acts Blacktop Mojo and Joyous Wolf. After a successful onslaught of summer shows, Black Heart Saints will enter the studio this fall to record an upcoming record that is destined to be a chart-topper.

GEARS logo hi res 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 Asonia, Stuck Mojo, Stereomud, Dark New Day) and Troy Mclawhorn (Evanescence, Seether, Dark 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 P_ride 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 a tour in January 2016.

Before spending most of 2017 touring with the likes of The Bunny The Bear, Seasons After and Bridge to Grace, Trip and Jimmy went back into the studio with Corey Lowery to begin working on new music. “KING” is the first single released to come out of those sessions and also features Clint Lowery on guitar.

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.

Darling Down Release Official Music Video for “Collide”

Battle Creek, MI hard rock band Darling Down have released the official video for their single, “Collide”, featuring a solo by Clint Lowery of Sevendust, off of their newest album  Never Tell.  “Collide” was directed by Travis and Samantha Ross at RipJaw Media.

Every video we do is a challenge to outdo the last. I feel that “Collide” is a mini movie with elements of a grade A thriller with on par Hollywood cinematic value – our acting, however, could use some work 🙂 – Ryan Hudson (Drums)

With their symphonically powerful sound and an arsenal of brand new material, mid-Michigan’s Darling Down is prepared to show the world that they are ready to stake their artistic claim in the territory of modern rock.

The band, an outstanding female fronted four piece, has a synergistic effect among its members: Amanda Legault’s clear, strong vocals that range from powerfully compelling to hauntingly sweet, Dustin Claud’s driving and dynamic guitar riffs, Nathan Simmon’s thunderous bass lines, and Ryan Hudson’s tight musicianship on drums. Committed to lyrically thoughtful and melodically engrossing songwriting with powerful hooks, Darling Down is distinctive in today’s musical arena. With lyrically relatable songs full of enough edginess, passion and real life to appeal to a wide audience, Darling Down’s songs are catchy, intriguing, and heavy; beautifully sung, constructed and arranged. Sonically driving, with soaring vocals and harmonies, the deep lyrics are sometimes juxtaposed with eerily strong, pretty vocals and heavy guitars, as on their earlier recording, “Revenge is Sweet Like Cherries.”

Fast forward to 2014, Darling Down is not holding anything back with their second full length release, “Never Tell,” produced by the nationally acclaimed producer / engineer / mixer Chuck Alkazian (Soundgarden, Trust Company, Pop Evil) and recorded at Pearl Sound Studios. “Never Tell,” which was released on 7/22/2014, has garnered a sizable amount of industry buzz. A stellar collection of songs, creatively written and with spectacular pieces of orchestration, Darling Down and their producer have created an album full of great musicianship, mesmerizing rhythms and melodies, and exciting, innovative collaborations with accomplished outside artists. “Never Tell” features guest appearances by Clint Lowery of SevendustVinnie Dombrowski of SpongeStephen Richards of Taproot, and Brett Hestla of Dark New Day.

Ramping up for the expansion of their touring in addition to their current live shows on schedule, following the release of “Never Tell” Darling Downcontinues to increase their live show radius throughout North America. In recent years, Darling Down has developed a loyal fan base with their passionate music and high energy live performances, and grabbed the attention of audiences throughout the Midwest.
