FALLING THROUGH APRIL Releases Official Music Video for “Recover // Relapse”

Charlotte, NC Alternative Rock Band FALLING THROUGH APRIL has released the official music video for their single, “Recover // Relapse.” Directed by Alex Hieder, “Recover // Relapse” originally premiered on Substream Magazine.

Player

“‘Recover // Relapse’ is about any and all addictions we individually face. As badly as we want to fight and break the desire to escape by numbing or distracting ourselves by abusing substances and sometimes people, something in us just wants to take the easy way out and give up. Recovery isn’t as easy as talking to someone about your struggles and the ugliest part is facing who we see in the mirror. So when I wrote ‘R//R,’ I wanted to express and release the pain I’ve held onto when I identified myself with the person I was when I chose to run away from my broken life rather than standing strong and finding hope in a new day. Sometimes it takes time after time to get it right. So nobody should feel bad about relapsing, at least we are brave enough to take steps before it’s too late” – Mikaela Salazar (Vocals)

Falling Through April have come together to form a cohesive unit in a city that is rich in music history and has a thriving independent rock scene. Their energy is abundant in their live shows and in the music from their new album Zodiac, which will be released on January 19th, 2018 through Page 2 Music.

Falling Through April released first single and video “Desperate Measures” in September of 2017 and have gained significant visibility: Google Play Music’s Modern Rock radio channel and iDobi radio were early supporters and are playing the song. The video premiered @ Alternative Press and debuted @ #13 on the Youtube Alternative Hotlist playlist. The video will be featured on the Footlocker In-Store network in 1,835 stores in 23 countries starting January 1st as well as several other major brand retail outlets. “Desperate Measures” is playing in over 3800 Health Clubs worldwide, and has been added to syndicated shows like MusicMix USA and Sidewalks TV, among others.

The band’s founders (Jim Siani, Dave Piontek, Taylor Foster, Dan Candia) have weathered the full gamut of hurdles as a startup since forming in 2011, ranging from exploding transmissions and ghosting vocalists to nearby celebratory gun fire landing Taylor in the hospital. When charismatic front woman Mikaela Salazar stepped into their lives in 2016, the road blocks were removed, and everyone found something to be excited about.

The 4 founders found each other while playing in different bands that were a part of the Charlotte indie rock scene. The band members came to music naturally, as they all had musicians in their family: Dan came from a long line of international musicians, and his dad always played guitar when he was growing up. Dave started in music early, and in his early teens he became enamored of the Electric Bass and that became his instrument of choice. Jim knew by the age of 13 that he wanted to be a professional musician, inspired by acts like Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, and his favorite band Weezer. Taylor grew up watching his Dad play drums, so you could say they are in his family DNA. Mikaela grew up in a house that was never silent, and the desire to be involved in music was second nature. She was inspired to become a singer by strong female musical role models like Alanis Morissette and Gwen Stefani.

The band has 2 previous independent releases: The Take Flight album in 2012; and the Risk and Reward Ep in 2015.

In early 2017 FTA packed up and drove to Nashville, TN for a several month’s long recording binge with producer and friend Jon King (Augustana, Darling Parade). The result is their new album Zodiac, a powerful alt-rock collection that melds influences ranging from Incubus to Halsey.

The band has amassed a significant touring resume, having opened for Theory of a Deadman, The Pretty Reckless, Pop Evil, Adelitas Way, Flyleaf and more. They have also performed at major festivals including the Vans Warped Tour, SXSW, Florida Music Festival, Sonorous Music Festival, Dewey Beach Music Conference and Celebrate Fairfax. Their touring has garnered them endorsements from PRS and Reverend Guitars, among others.

FTA’s goal is to have their music reach as many people as possible around the world and for their music to inspire and encourage listeners. Becoming a household name in the modern rock community drives them forward, and “Zodiac” promises to help them achieve that goal. A second single and video will be released in early 2018.

LullLogo-02

For more than a decade, alt rockers Lullwater have been blazing their way to the top of the industry thanks to their gritty, Southern-infused sound and straight-up, raw performances.

Formed in 2007 in Athens, GA, the foursome was born from the indelible mark that the godfathers of grunge left on music. The convergence of this inspiration, mixed with a healthy helping of swagger, defines this critically acclaimed alternative rock band.

The group released its debut, self-titled album in 2012 to solid reviews and were immediately invited to join some of the biggest tours that same year, as well as had the single “Albatross” featured on Sirius XM Octane Radio. Since that time, Lullwater has spent the majority of their career on the road sharing the stage with such A-list acts as Candlebox, Theory of a Deadman, Flyleaf, Passafire, Amaranthe, Butcher Babies, and more. The band released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Revival, in 2015, followed by a live EP, The Seattle Sessions, in 2017.

Voodoo, their latest effort and arguably their best work to date, was recorded at the end of 2017 in New Orleans at Marigny Studios by Swedish producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann, co-produced/engineered by Justin Davis, and mixed by Jakob Herrmann at top floor studios, is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release; this record promises an even bigger, more explosive sound that will shake you to your core.

LULLWATER Release Official Music Video for “Empty Chamber”

Lullwater Poster Nirvana Style 2

Athens, GA based alternative rock band LULLWATER has released the official music video for their single “Empty Chamber.” Originally premiered on Consequence Of Sound, “Empty Chamber” is off of the band’s upcoming LP, Voodoo, set to release 2/22/2019.

Player

“We all have experienced and been in a moment of excruciating emotional pain and ‘Empty Chamber’ was written during one of those moments. The song has an upbeat tempo and happy melodic vibe but the lyrics are depressing and filled with anxiety. Sometimes everything in life can be going great but you still struggle with emotional pain and confusion. I feel ‘Empty Chamber’ embodies that emotion.” – John Strickland

LULLWATER Releases Stunning Cover of PEARL JAM’s “Release”

Lullwater Poster Nirvana Style 2

Athens, GA based alternative rock band LULLWATER has released the official music video for their cover of PEARL JAM’s “Release,” off of the 1991 hit album TEN. Originally premiered on Loudwire, “Release” features live Footage with Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox) and Kevin Martin (Candlebox), and was recorded at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, WA, where TEN was originally recorded, with engineering and mixing by Justin Davis.

Player

“The entire experience of recording Pearl Jam’s ‘Release’ in London Bridge Studios was so surreal. Pearl Jam is one of my favorite bands and to cover that song in the same room as they did, was very emotional for me. I had no idea that a couple of years later we would be performing it live with Dave Krusen and Kevin Martin on the Candlebox tour; it’s such an odd and incredible feeling of living and experiencing the moments we’ve made because of ‘Release.’ It’s by far the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me as a musician. Thinking back to when I was in my adolescent years playing that song over and over and then one day to be performing it live with the original drummer, is simply crazy for me. ‘Release’ has a special place in my heart and is one of my favorite songs to play live.” – John Strickland (Vocals/Guitar)

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

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)

Connect with Darling Down:

Facebook | Twitter | Official

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!
