The Howlin' Souls - Viva La Revolucion (Again)

NYC based rockers The Howlin' Souls are releasing their brand new single, Viva La Revolucion (Again), today, October 13.
Viva La Revolucion (Again) is extremely relevant in the current political climate and urges people to pay attention to the world around them. With cries of protest, The Howlin' Souls make a firm point that they will not be silenced nor will they back down anytime soon. "The song touches on a few subjects that are relevant in America and beyond, including corrupt politicians, corporations influencing policy, people rising up in protest and police brutality. It is happening all over the world" said Smith.

Produced by Fritz Lang (long-time engineer at CBGB's, The Record Plant NYC, Sigma NYC), Viva La Revolucion (Again) features strong guitar riffs and a pounding bassline that will make you want to get up and make a change.

Cry Cry Cry WOLF PARADE lunedì, 9 ottobre 2017 23:01 by madseason
Wolf Parade - Cry III

Wolf Parade aren't a new band by any means; formed in 2003 in Montreal, the Canadian indie rockers went on indefinite hiatus in 2011, after releasing 3 critically acclaimed albums between 2005 and 2010. Now they're back in full force with LP record number 4.

Titled Cry Cry Cry, the new album was produced by Pacific Northwest legend John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Unwound) at Robert Lang Studios outside of Seattle, and released last October 6 on Sub Pop Records.

Cry Cry Cry is the band's strongest and most focused deliver so far. If a mix of The Killers, Joy Division, David Bowie, indie guitar rock, driving power pop and synth-wave doesn't cause you nausea, then try this beautiful album streaming it on Spotify.

Also, check the brand new video for Cry III (King Of Piss And Paper/Artificial Life) clicking on the image.

Plan Three - Echo

Initially announced for an early year release and postponed to the end of September, Wish I Was Stormborne, the new album for the Swedish band Plan Three is finally out.

Get to know AVIATORS' Dystopian Fiction lunedì, 11 settembre 2017 16:41 by madseason
Aviators - Dystopian Fiction

Independent one-man band Aviators released a new album last month.

Titled Dystopian Fiction, it's the last in its trilogy and tells the story of the beginning of the apocalypse: before Stargazers and the revolution of Building Better Worlds, the war-torn wasteland held one last great city, ruled by gods among men. These half-machine leaders showed contempt for those beneath them, so a plan to usurp their power began.

Themes present on the album include false idolization, fractured reality and the realm of dreams. Fading Light, Here Come The Ravens, and other songs on the album borrow themes and stories from pop culture video games and TV shows. 

If you're already a fan of Aviators or are interested in greatly written alternative melodic rock and retrowave/synthpop tracks, check Dystopian Fiction out now.
