Hollywood Undead Release New Version of “Whatever It Takes” & Are Touring North America

Hollywood Undead - Whatever It Takes (Mixtape)

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.

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).

The Glorious Sons Debut Cover of Kanye West’s “Runaway” & Begin U.S. Headline Tour March 13th in Minneapolis, MN

Los Angeles, CA – Today, JUNO-nominated rock band, The Glorious Sons, are pleased to share their cover of Kanye West’s hit single, “Runaway.” Their version of the song was recorded at Fiction Studios in London, U.K. and showcases frontman Brett Emmons’ raw and earnest vocals. This is the first of a series of stripped down videos to be released over the upcoming weeks. The track is available to stream and purchase at digital retailers.

“Chris Koster [guitar, vocals] is a gigantic Kanye fan and he’s been covering the song for years. We played it in a church once together, and my voice just kind of worked with the song,” says Brett. “I can remember listening to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and watching the short film all the time in university. It is by far my favorite Kanye album. I had never heard rap sound like that before. In my opinion, this album is one of the most important of the 21st century, and “Runaway” is one of the most perfect pop songs ever written.”

After extensive touring across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. last year in support of their sophomore album, Young Beauties and Fools (Oct. 2017 via BMG US), The Glorious Sons will kick off their new North American headline dates on March 13th in Minneapolis MN. On May 8th, the band will meet up with The Struts for a run of support shows that launch in Bloomington, IL and wrap in Portland, OR on May 23rd. The Glorious Sons will also hit the festival circuit this summer, performing at Hang Out Music Festival (Gulf Shores, AL),Firefly Music Festival (Dover, DE), and the esteemed Reading & Leeds Festivals (U.K.).

“You don’t know what you’re going to get night to night from us,” says Jay Emmons [guitar, vocals]. “It’s something you have to see – we try to keep it interesting and powerful,” adds Brett. A full list of shows is included below, and all tickets can be purchased HERE.

Young Beauties and Fools scored a nomination at the JUNO Awards for Rock Album of the Year. This is the second JUNO nod for the band, whose debut album, The Union, earned a nomination in the same category in 2015. YBAF’s lead single, “Everything Is Alright,” was named Apple Music’s “Best of the Week,” hit over 2.6 million streams in Canada, and was the guys’ first #1 at the Alternative format. The track is also currently streaming on Spotify’s “Rock This” playlist. Watch the “Everything Is Alright” video HERE.

The Glorious Sons have garnered over 26 million streams in North America, sold nearly 150k singles, produced nine consecutive top 10 radio singles including “Everything Is Alright” and “Josie,” and earned the title of Most Played Artist on Canadian Rock Radio. Daniel P Carter of BBC Radio 1 called the album one of his favorites of the year, and the band recently completed a Maida Vale live session on the Radio 1 Rock Show as well.

The Faim Premiere Debut Single, UK Tour with Lower Than Atlantis, & To Play Download Festival

Los Angeles — Perth, Australia’s newest export, The Faim who have recently signed to BMG worldwide, premiered their new song ‘Saints Of The Sinners’ last night as the Radio 1 Rock Show’s ‘Rockest Record.’ The single is out today, February 5th, and is available to stream and purchase HERE.

‘Saints Of The Sinners’ is about making your mark in the world, and not letting anyone stand in the way of where you want to be. It brings out the youth-fuelled rebellion of the voice in all of us that wants to be heard,” says Stephen Beerkens, who plays bass and keyboard in the band.

Listen to the track HERE or by clicking the video below.

The track was produced by John Feldmann who says “working with untapped talent like The Faim doesn’t happen every day. I see something in them that I don’t see in a lot of bands… Amazing songwriters, incredible performers, great front man. I am so pumped for the world to hear what we have created. It is truly a piece of art and I am so grateful I followed through with having these guys out to my house after they sent me their demo!

Come and see what the fuss is all about when the band play their debut UK shows with Lower Than Atlantis in the spring, as well as a slot at Download Festival in the summer.

Sleepwar Releases “Thousand Different Faces” Off of Upcoming EP, ‘When We Were’

Phoenix based, Indie Rock band Sleepwar has released the Official Music Video for their single, “Thousand Different Faces.” Originally premiered on Paste Magazine, “Thousand Different Faces” is the first single off of the band’s upcoming debut EP, When We Were, and is available for FREE download.

Hailing from the desert expanse of Phoenix, Arizona, indie rock band Sleepwar pushes indie rock to another level by combining new wave and synth-pop influence, with lyrics speaking to addiction, recovery, and the inherent struggles of modern life. Sleepwar is led by Roger Willis (vocals) with Tim Woodbridge (producer, keys), James Allen (bass), Mark Pfister (guitar), and Brendan McGuinness (drums).

Utilizing lush synthesizer soundscapes, Sleepwar produces a unique sound that is both familiar and completely original. Fans of the five-piece rock outfit have likened their music to that of Tame Impalathe KillersColdplayImagine Dragons, and Local Natives.

Sleepwar’s self-released initial EP, When We Were, due for an early 2018 release, was recorded, mixed, and produced by Cory Spotts (Job For A CowboyThe MaineBless the FallGreeley Estates) at BLUElight Audio Media in Phoenix, AZ.

When We Were EP cover - Sleepwar

Sleepwar was formed in 2015 when seasoned musician Roger Willis (Something Left To LearnNamesakeGoodbye Tomorrow) sought a new project focused on songwriting and collaborated with aspiring producer Tim Woodbridge, who had been composing with vocal placement in mind. Willis shared their rudimentary recordings to longtime friend James Allen, who immediately loved the new sound.

Allen joined Sleepwar as bassist and co-lyricist, where his former struggles with addiction and drug abuse became the foundation for early songs like “The Jaywalker.” Though Allen’s words drew from his personal demons, the lyrics would resonate with Willis and Woodbridge who had experienced both personal and familial alcohol and drug addiction. While the founding members of Willis, Woodbridge and Allen would remain constant, the band’s evolution from garage to indie rock new wave brought to the lineup several talented musicians, eventually finding balance with current drummer Brendan McGuinness and guitarist Mark Pfister.
