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. The band has performed alongside many notable acts including Theory of a DeadmanNonpointTaprootSmile Empty SoulPop EvilRedRaFraming HanleySaving AbelEvans BlueSalivaHed PEMushoomhead, and many more.
Darling Down, fresh off the release of “Never Tell,” will be one to watch as they share their new music and unique show with an even wider scope of music fans throughout the country. Be on the lookout for upcoming tour dates!

Cross The Divide Release Official Music Video For “Sail On The Stars”

Hard/Progressive Rock Trio Cross The Divide have released the Official Video for “Sail On The Stars”, the sophomore single off of their upcoming full length debut album Fearless, due out 10/14/2016. The video was directed by Caleb Chamberlain and Will Hermonat.

“‘Sail on the Stars’ is a song that deals with loss. The message in this song is that when a person is left behind due to death or parting, it is important to be able to let go and find comfort in the right places. In the case of hurt, forgiveness is a vital part of that parting and grieving process. This song deals with all of that in a simple idea, a blessing: ‘sail on the stars.'” – Cross The Divide

25272One of the fastest growing, and most in-demand original artists in New England is southern New Hampshire-based Cross the Divide. The three-member band combines heavy guitar riffs and melodic vocals to produce a unique blend of progressive and hard rock styles served up onstage with their engaging, high-energy performance. In an increasingly superficial era, Cross the Divide brings not only sweet guitar licks and driving bass lines, but also deep lyrical content driving home themes of hope, strength, and justice. The band has coined their own sub-genre for their sound: Storm Rock, which they define as “intense technical rock with deep lyrical themes”.

Though the band has been in existence since September 2010, Cross the Divide did not truly begin to define itself in the industry until mid-2014 when guitarist, Zac, and bassist, Chase, welcomed their hard hitting drummer Jake French into the project. Since that time, the band has played alongside many major artists including DisturbedGodsmackBreaking BenjaminAlter BridgeSevendustTriviumPop EvilSeetherSkillet10 YearsBuckcherryEscape the FateStarsetIslanderFor Today3 Years HollowScott Stapp, and many more.

Cross the Divide is currently gearing up for the release of their highly-anticipated full-length album Fearless, which will be out on October 14, 2016. The 11-track CD will feature their hit song “The Perfect Storm,” which has seen airplay on terrestrial and internet radio all over the world, as well as upcoming single “Sail on the Stars”. Fearless is the first professionally produced record for the band, and the first recordings with the current lineup.
