Los Angeles, CA – Today, The Faim have partnered with Billboard to premiere the official video for “Summer Is A Curse,” the third single from their forthcoming debut album. Watch it exclusively HERE.

The highly-anticipated new video follows frontman Josh Raven and his love interest on the run from the law, eventually escaping before it all goes up in flames. It also showcases the band delivering a stellar live performance with the Welsh countryside as a fitting backdrop.

The song was co-written with Ashton Irwin of 5 Seconds of Summer, and according to Josh, “ ‘Summer is a Curse’ is a reflection of our journey as a band. Being placed out of Australia and in LA for the first time as a band, we got thrown into this whole new world of exciting experiences and pressures. As frightening as it was, and no matter our feelings at home, it became this tunnel vision of realizing that we had this chance to make our dreams a reality. Our music video reflecting that exact same feeling of freedom was so important for us.”

Fans can stream and purchase “Summer Is A Curse” HERE.

FRND Shares New Single “Erase”, & Forthcoming EP “Before U I Didn’t Exist” Due 9/28

Los Angeles, CA  Today, FRND (a.k.a. Los Angeles-based musician Andrew Goldstein) is excited to share his new single, “Erase.” The upbeat, melodic track is his first new offering in nearly a year and is the first song from his upcoming EP, Before U I Didn’t Exist, out September 28th (via Crooked Paintings/BMG). Fans can stream and purchase “Erase” HERE.

According to Goldstein, “ ‘Erase’ is about someone coming into your life and wiping out lingering sadness from the past. When you realize the effect they have on you, you can’t help but fall for them.

To fully experience the intriguingly glitchy pop of FRND, you need to understand his obsession with koala bears. As surrogates in his videos re-living his experiences, they are depicted sweetly, soulfully, even hallucinogenically. “The koala is almost like an alter ego who represents a version of myself,” explains Goldstein. “They might be chill on the outside, but there’s a lot of emotion. It embodies this journey I’m going through.

Animated avatars notwithstanding, the musings on romantic woe woven through FRND’s intimate 2017 EP, In Your Dreams, proved all-too-human. Its first single, the levitating “Friend” (“My friend….We’ve come to an end”), first captured ears after appearing on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, subsequently hitting No. 1 on Hype Machine. Meanwhile, the ebbing-and-flowing sting of “Substitute” clocked a staggering 16-plus million streams. (Not surprisingly, Goldstein’s knack for capturing the human spirit by way of sticky hooks previously led him to pen songs for Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, and blackbear.)

“The mastermind behind some of today’s most exciting tracks” – NYLON

This has culminated in FRND’s much-anticipated follow up EP, Before U I Didn’t Exist. A collection of melodic, nuanced tracks, they sort through the disenchantment that permeated In Your Dreams. “You erase/ Erase all the hurt that I felt before,” he sings hopefully on Before U’s first single “Erase,” all percolating beats and sweet nothings. “You replace/ Replace it with something I can’t ignore.”

I called my last project In Your Dreams, because I dreamt about some of these songs over and over again,” he says. “It was an awakening that I didn’t feel until I had those experiences.” Before U I Didn’t Exist attempts to exorcise those ghosts. The intoxicating title track (“Stay with me/ Hold on tight/ Fill my heart with pretty lies…”), for instance, is a relatable portrait of escapism. What it doesn’t deliver in closure, it does provide in a contact high through singsongy vocals and bright synthscapes.

“Always infectious” – Entertainment Weekly

FRND’s pop may not always be pretty, but his journey is an exhilaratingly authentic one—lust, laments, and all. “FRND is really this place you don’t think you’re capable of going until you actually get there,” he says. “You realize how much of life is driven by emotion versus thinking logistically.” In the end, there’s still hope for a happy ending. “Once you navigate through these emotions, you get to the next level. That’s what happened for me,” he adds.

Rock Guitar virtuoso Adrian Galysh has revealed the first single, “So Close… So Far,” off of his upcoming Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition. Due out July 10, 2018, Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition will include completely re-recorded tracks, the remastered original record, and bonus live tracks.

“Venusian Sunrise was recorded in my parent’s basement on a single Alesis 8-Track ADAT recorder. While the performances are commendable for their time, given limited resources at the age of 22—it lacks what 20 years of experience and advancement in recording technology can now easily provide—richer guitar tones, advanced recording techniques, the palatial keyboard and realistic orchestral sounds of today, and maybe most importantly…real drums!” – Adrian Galysh

“Hello Goodbye” Premiered on Paste Magazine

 American Singer/Song-writer Joe Settineri has released the official music video for his impassioned pop single “Hello Goodbye.” Originally premiered on Paste Magazine, “Hello Goodbye” was written in collaboration with platinum Nashville-based producer Mike Krompass (Smash MouthNellie Furtado).

“Love lost, regret, and the power of saying, “goodbye.” Moving on, though is rarely that simple. Our love lives are tangles of good and bad – pushing and pulling – never wanting to let go, yet, needing to break free. Searching for that allusive feeling of ‘true’ happiness. Did we give up too soon? Will we ever know? Why can’t we forget? Does clarity ever present itself? This song emotively asks these questions and explores the purposeful intention to move on and the confusing, often conflicting emotions that come with it.
I said goodbye, but why can’t I forget?”
Searching for clarity — finding a new path – is never easy.”Joe Settineri

“Clarity is never an easy path when it comes to this emotion called love, however, what Joe Settineri brings is his ardent musical talents as he carries his lyrics of rich passion simply and understandably. Joe’s vocals and the embracing notes from his piano show his arrival time is welcomed in the world of pop music while the video imagery is the perfect compliment to the heart of “Hello Goodbye.” Simply put, Joe Settineri’s music delivers the power to believe in love again.” – Paste Magazine

Stream / Download “Hello Goodbye” Online:

About Joe Settineri

“… American singer-songwriter Joe Settineri has a habit of writing love songs, but just listen to his music and you’ll understand why … and understand the power of Joe Settineri.”

Originally from the mid-west, Los Angeles based singer songwriter Joe Settineri was a late bloomer. After the music world wooed him away from a finance career, and years spent being one of a handful of go-to singers in Los Angeles, Settineri established himself as an exceptional singer-songwriter in 2009 with his widely praised first studio album, STAY (LML Records). His second full studio album, BEYOND YOUR CONTROL, was released 2014 and followed up by his most recent EP, BE THE ONE in 2017.

Joe’s newest singles, “HELLO GOODBYE,” “BATMAN CRIES,” and “OXYGEN,” all collaborations with multi-platinum Nashville-based producer Mike Krompass (Smash Mouth, Nellie Furtado), are slated for release in summer 2018.

Joe lives in Los Angeles with his husband and two children.

Greg Holden Debuts Brand New Track, “On The Run” & European Headline Tour Kicks Off In July

Los Angeles, CA – 

Today, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and BMG’s latest signing, Greg Holden, is excited to share his new single, “On The Run,” his first release in three years.

The track was produced by the iconic Butch Walker (Katy Perry, Panic! At The Disco, Weezer) and serves as a follow up to his third full-length studio album, Chase the Sun (2015). “On The Run” is an uplifting, stadium-ready anthem complete with catchy, summery hooks that perfectly mesh with Holden’s strong, heartfelt vocals. The song is available to stream and purchase HERE.

“ ‘On The Run’ is one of a few songs that was bouncing around in my head when it came to the question of what to lead with after three years on the dark side of the moon,” says Holden. “Ultimately, this song felt like the most authentic, whilst at the same time not being so typically subject heavy that I would scare my listeners away. I’ll save that for the second single…”

“ ‘On The Run’ is an apology, obviously. But it’s an apology to a number of people, for a number of things,” he adds. “For years I’ve been on the road, either emotionally or physically absent, and at times probably a nightmare for partners, friends, and family. I wanted to write something that in a way, said sorry for all that. A way to relinquish some of the guilt perhaps. I recorded it last winter with Butch Walker, along with some incredibly talented friends. It took a morning, it was a blast, and then we were done. It feels right to lead with this one as it came out so naturally.”

The Scottish-born, English-raised musician has garnered recognition as an independent artist for the past several years and is best known for writing Phillip Phillips’ hit single, “Home,” which sold over five million copies in the U.S. and earned him an ASCAP Pop Award. He’s also earned praise from industry staples such as Cher, Josh Groban, Sara Bareilles, Michael Bublé, Zane Lowe, TIME, NPR, and more.

Despite his early accolades, Holden has not taken his success for granted and has worked tirelessly to establish his profile as a socially conscious artist. Standout track, “The Lost Boy” (from his sophomore album, I Don’t Believe You [2012]), inspired by a Dave Eggers’ novel about a Sudanese refugee, raised over $50,000 for the Red Cross. His hit single from Chase the Sun, “Boys In The Street,” an acceptance anthem that discusses a gay son’s strained relationship with his father, directly benefited LGBTQ youth by raising money for the Everyone Is Gay organization. It’s an emotional, poignant song that Tom Hanks called “perfect.”

This summer, Holden will head back out on tour, headlining shows across Europe including notable stops in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Munich. All tickets can be purchased HERE, and a full list of shows can be found below.

“Rare is a singer-songwriter who can actually touch the lives of another person with raw, emotional lyrical poetry.” –Nylon

“Soaring, purpose-filled songs that carry real emotional weight.” –BuzzFeed

“Holden’s clear vocals give an even greater weight to his expressive lyrics when the songs are performed live.” –Paste

Los Angeles, CA – Today, Hollywood Undead unveiled a new version of their hit single, “Whatever It Takes,” featuring notable recording artists Prodigal Sunn, Demrick, and Fudd Rukus. The mixtape edition of the song is available to stream and purchase on digital retailers, and fans can grab a listen and watch the music video HERE.

The video was once again directed by Brian Cox, who has been at the helm for other signature Hollywood Undead videos including “California Dreaming” and “Black Cadillac.” The original track appears on the band’s fifth studio album, FIVE, released October 27th, 2017 via Dove & Grenade Media/BMG

“It’s such an honor for us as a band to share this song with some extremely talented artists and friends,” says Johnny 3 Tears, Hollywood Undead’s vocalist and bass guitarist. “The song is about doing whatever we have to in order to overcome any circumstance, which is something everyone goes through in life. It’s amazing to hear new stories on the same song. What’s your story?”

Currently On North American Tour – Confirmed to Play Las Rageous, Welcome to Rockville, & Fort Rock Festivals

After completing a substantial run of European dates earlier this year, Hollywood Undead is currently back on the road for a tour across North America. Tonight, the band will co-headline The Complex in Salt Lake City with In This Moment, followed by a run of headline shows and festival performances at Las Rageous, Welcome to Rockville, Fort Rock, Corona Hell & Heaven, Impact Music, and Heavy Montréal. After selling out venues in London, Munich, Budapest, Prague, and more, it’s needless to say that the quintet’s atomic live performances are in high demand. To see it for yourself, check out the official live video of “Renegade” from the band’s headline performance at Moscow’s Adrenaline Stadium.

A full list of tour dates is included below, and all tickets can be purchased HERE.

FIVE debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top Albums Chart and has accumulated over 35 million streams, led by standout tracks “California Dreaming,”“Whatever It Takes” and “Bad Moon.” The record threads together a collage of metallic instrumentation, street corner poetry, and industrial haze, and Hollywood Undead’s “penchant for experimentation, as well as a flair for pop craftsmanship, is what sets [the band] apart from some of their contemporaries” (AllMusic).

Listen to FIVE HERE, and stay tuned for more new music from Hollywood Undead.
