Nashville based soul rock band KB & THE IDYLLWILDE has released the official music video for their new single, “Madman.” Directed by front-woman Katie Burke, “Madman” is off of band’s upcoming album, I Just Wanna Love You, I Just Wanna Let You, due to release February 14, 2020.

“That pervasive waiting for the other shoe to drop feel was real strong in me at the time. The character in this song can’t accept love, they can’t see why anyone would stick around. They’re covered in their perception that people must be crazy to stand being around them. So in the end, the character accepts that both she and this person must both be nuts for it all to work. Good news, it works! Bad news… is there bad news? They’re nuts? Yes, nuts & happy—Fun fact, I wasn’t satisfied with my vocal performance in the studio so my producer Evan let me borrow a mic, and I tracked this in one take at home in my closet.” – Katie Burke

“Basically, this album encompasses all the ways we distort and experience love, or how I have at least…

Its a lot of addiction, egoic superiority/inferiority tendencies, and just plain codependent shit. Its a ‘love’ album about not knowing how to get it right, but celebrating all the ugly/beautiful ways we get it wrong.” – Katie Burke

IJWLY NO TITLE

KB & The Idyllwilde is a soul-rock band based in Nashville, TN, led by high octane vocalist Katie Burke. Her lyrical content deals in the offbeat and the ugly; the extremes of love, sex, death and pain.

Sonically, the band draws influence from artists ranging from JanisJimi, and Zeppelin to Beth HartDMB, and Jack White.

The name ‘Idyllwilde’ is derived from its two root words ‘idyll’ meaning ‘story’, and ‘wild’ meaning anything goes. The two words come together in acknowledgement of the band’s mission: to make music without the limits of genre or content, honoring the idea that ‘anything goes’. To KB, every compelling story is worth telling no matter what it looks or sounds like.

SANGRE-portada-300-3

Southern California based Metal Band SANGRE has released the official music video for “Death March,” off of their upcoming album, Mas Fuerte Que La Muerte (Stronger Than Death), due out 12/13/2019. Shot at Fuel Music Studios in Fullerton, CA, the video for “Death March” features the band members experiencing different types of stresses from overdue bills, depression, work related issues, eviction, alcohol abuse, and suicidal thoughts.

Player

“‘Death March,’ lyrically, touches on the current situation of ‘living wages’ vs ‘cost of living,’ focusing on the stress, depression, and neglect of personal health and family while just trying to survive in this high demand world. The phenomenon is an actual epidemic in Japan known as ‘Karoshi’ or ‘overworking to survive,’ which in many cases results in suicides or fatigue leading to death.” – Henry Sanchez (Vocals)

BLACKTOP MOJO Announce PledgeMusic Campaign to Fund Upcoming Album

BTM HOB DFW CB-8965

Texas based hard rock band BLACKTOP MOJO has announced PledgeMusic campaign to help fund their upcoming third full length album.

“We’ve been writing and cutting demos in preparation for the third record , and we’re really excited about the direction of the new material. We’re also thrilled to have so much support from our family of Fans and friends” – Blacktop Mojo

Promo Video

Fans can pre-order a selection of items including signed copies of the new album, exclusive t-shirts, fishing with the band, hangouts, and even listing their name in the album jacket.

“As independent artists, everything we do is fan-funded. We don’t have a record label loaning us a ton of money to make a record. With that, comes some financial pitfalls, but it also means NOBODY tells us how to make music for you guys and we think that’s pretty cool!”

A hard-driving Southern rock unit based out of Palestine, Texas, Blacktop Mojo’s fiery blend of post-grunge, classic rock, and metal falls somewhere between Soundgarden, Black Stone Cherry, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Founded in 2012 by front-man Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, the band eventually morphed into a five-piece with the additions of bass player Matt Curtis and guitarists Ryan Kiefer and Kenneth Irwin. They released their debut album, I Am, in 2014, followed by a heavy bout of touring that saw the group sharing the stage with a wide array of heavy hitters, including Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Candlebox, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Shaman’s Harvest, Pop Evil, Puddle of Mudd, and Drowning Pool.

In 2017, the band teamed up with Muscle Shoals producer Jimmy Johnson for their highly anticipated sophomore outing Burn the Ships. The album was released via the band’s label, Cuhmon Records, in March of that year to critical acclaim, and it’s first single, “Where The Wind Blows” reached #27 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, while the band was on its first U.S. tour that fall. Through that tour, they landed a slot on 2018’s Rock Fest, featuring headliners Disturbed, Incubus, and Godsmack, among many other industry leading hard rock acts.

At the beginning of 2018, the band has started work on its third full length release, as well as touring to support the second radio single from, Burn The Ships.
