Denver, CO based dark rock artist SHARONE has released the official lyric video for “Closer to Love,” the third single off of her upcoming LP, Reflection, due out December 7, 2019.

Player

“This is my favorite song off of Reflection. It starts slow but just keeps building, so give it a chance. It’s a love song, but not one of those mushy gushy love songs. It’s honest. It has a really fun and dancey chorus and it just makes me smile. I present to you, ‘Closer To Love’”. Enjoy! – Sharone

Channeling chaos into art, Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s Belles, and Stitched Up Heart. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live, and to eventually release her 2017 demo album, Storm.

Despite sustaining a dark and nearly melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics.

In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album Storm. Following the release, underwent a complete lineup change in her band, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: Enchiridion of Nightmares (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality.

There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.”
The Ringmaster Review

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and is currently working on her third studio album. This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm.

Sharone’s third studio album, ‘Reflection’, is due out December 7th, 2019.

In their years of performing live they’ve had the experience of touring the west coast in support of Shinedown and opening for acts such as Chevelle, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd, and Nonpoint, as well as contributing to some of the Midwest’s largest music festivals, including Northern Invasion, RockFest, Summerfest, Moondance Jam, and Halfway Jam.

Their eponymous EP, produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass, further pushed their rock to an even greater creative edge with songs like “The Break” and “Perfect Chambers”. Their long-awaited full length album release for 2019 represents a creative outpouring for the band, with “A New Disaster” leading the charge.

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

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
