Greg Holden Shares New Political Anthem, “The Power Shift”

Los Angeles, CA – Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Greg Holden, is proud to unveil his new single, “The Power Shift,” political, call-to-action earworm and arguably, one of his most important efforts to date. Although there was no singular event or figure who inspired Holden to write “The Power Shift,” he uses the song to call out the widespread inequality many Americans endure at the hands of those in power. Listen HERE, and download and stream the track HERE.

“I was trying to manifest a collective call on the, for lack of a better word, bullshit. I think it’s important that when someone is lying to you, you call them out,” says Holden, who often uses his inherently rebellious spirit to push back against the status quo. “I was getting tired of screaming into the social media echo chamber and really wanted to put my frustrations into a song that wasn’t so toxic. I’m under no illusion that this is just a song, but it’s better than a tweet,” he adds.

While “The Power Shift” draws inspiration from the current divisive climate in the U.S., it doesn’t harp on pessimism; rather, it has an inspiring message for people to rise up, come together, and shift the power to better leaders. Ultimately, the track demands fair treatment for all, no matter their race, gender, sexuality, or socioeconomic status. It’s upbeat and catchy, yet meaningful and relevant, and an example of how the intersection of music and politics can be an impactful tool to incite change. It’s bound to be a significant song this year, given the tentative political landscape.

New Video for “On the Run” Out Now

In May, Holden returned to the music scene after nearly three years with “On The Run,” an anthemic, 80s-inspired single produced by the legendary Butch Walker (Katy Perry, Panic! At The Disco, Weezer), who also performs the song with Holden in the accompanying music video. It’s a stellar performance between the two artists, and fans can watch it HERE.

Confirmed to Support Butch Walker on Fall U.S. Tour

Holden is currently on his European headline tour, which hits notable stops in Amsterdam, Berlin, and London. This fall, he’ll head back to the states and join forces once again with Butch Walker, providing direct support on his fall U.S. run. The trek kicks off on Sept. 7th in Phoenix, AZ and concludes on Sept. 23rd in New York, NY. At the end of the year, Holden will also open for Josh Radin for a quick tour across Brazil.

Another Day’s Armor Releases Official Music Video for “Death Investing”

New York based rock / alternative metal band ANOTHER DAY’S ARMOR has released the official music video for their single, “Death Investing.” Originally premiered on BVTV Music, “Death Investing” was filmed by Alex Kouvatsos at Blackwolf Imaging.

Download / Stream “Death Investing” Online:

iTunes  |  Spotify

Death Investing - Album Cover

Another Day’s Armor is a Rock / Alternative Metal band from New York. Combining the huge, mainstream sound of arena rock with borderline metal instrumental work, the band started to create a buzz for themselves with debut singles “Reflections” and “Simple As Sin.” Coming off the momentum of the previous two singles, the band has been working on their debut EP which is set to release mid summer 2018.

“Another Day’s Armor is ready to prove that rock n’ roll belongs at the top of the billboard charts.” – Another Day’s Armor

Coming up in a time where very few bands put any emphasis into their image and persona, ADA pride themselves on standing out from the crowd both visually, and musically. With an image reminiscent of a time where rock was on top of the music world, Another Day’s Armor refuses to be just another “faceless” band, wanting their fans to feel connected to every member: Logan Manganelli – Vocals, Nick Palma – Lead Guitar, Ryan Bicknell – Rhythm Guitar, Joe Grunski – Bass, and Alec Keshishian – Drums.

Another Day’s Armor aren’t just a band, they are a movement for the future of rock.

Phoenix Band Jane N’ The Jungle Does Incendiary Title Track for Brash Indie Film SHE

PHOENIX  Popular local PHX band Jane N’ The Jungle is expanding their repertoire to film soundtracks, covering Aloe Blacc’s “The Man” as the title track for the contentious local indie flick, SHEthat has been stirring debate here in the Valley. The song was selected by the film’s director and frequent JNTJ collaborator, Will Goldstein.  

“The original song is sung by a man, with male-dominated lyrics. When we perform it, the song takes on an opposing point of view,” says Jordan White, the band’s front-woman.

At a time when sexism has been a featured topic during the #metoo movement, the irony of a woman performing such a male-centric song is intended to spark discussion about a male-dominated culture that undermines female power. The raw, stripped down performance by Jane N’ The Jungle, has a haunting grit that embodies the controversial film.

Ken Casey, Dropkick Murphys’ vocalist / bassist / founder explains, “It’s been one hell of a party. Great to hang with our old friends Flogging Molly on and off the stage and it’s been great to see so many smiling faces in the audience each night. It’s something the two bands and the fans have wanted for a long time. We are so excited for the next leg of the tour out West!!!!!”

The Faim Premiere New Video for “Summer Is a Curse” With Billboard

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.

Guitar Legend Adrian Galysh Releases “So Close… So Far” Off of Upcoming ‘Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition’

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
