H.E.R.O is a rock band from from Copenaghen, DK, I already featured them a couple of times.

They released their self-titled debut EP on September 9, 2016, a very entertaining melodic anthemic rock mini-album that featured the brilliant singles Superpowers and Fall And Fade.

Now they're back with a brand new single titled Higher, released on January 12, again on Mermaid Records and exclusively distributed by Sony Music Entertainment Denmark.

Higher is another awesome, highly addictive track, in the vein of their countrymen Carpark North. Check it out on Spotify and stay tuned for news about H.E.R.O's upcoming new album.

Falling Through April - Zodiac

My first post about Charlotte, NC based Alt Rockers Falling Through April was in October, at the time of the release of their single Desperate Measures.

Now I'm back on them, because FTA released their new full-length album Zodiac on January 19th, 2018 through Page 2 Music.

Zodiac was produced by Jon King (Augustana, Darling Parade) and is a powerful, melodic alt-rock collection that melds influences ranging from Incubus to Halsey.

Only One: the evolution of VERMILLION ROAD venerdì, 26 gennaio 2018 21:15 by madseason
Vermillion Road - Only One

Alternative pop-rock band Vermillion Road is releasing their new single Only One today, January 26, 2018.

Only One is an addictive, synth-driven song influenced by bands like Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic and Young the Giant. Only One captures the essence of the band's newly evolved sound: starting as a hard rock band, Vermillion Road fully embraces this new direction and brings the high energy into the alternative pop genre.

Vermillion Road have made a name for themselves in the Denver music scene. Playing at events such as the Vans Warped Tour and Coors Light Westword Music Showcase has led to them appearing throughout the Southwest U.S. on radio and television. The band's leaders Will Robison (vocals) and Hunter Heurich (guitar) have been playing music together since they were teenagers. Both of these original band members have synesthesia, the joining of a person's senses: for Robison and Heurich, this means hearing a certain sound resulting in the visualization of a certain color.

Listen to Only One on digital music platforms worldwide and keep watch for their forthcoming EP, due out later this year.

Overloaded hearts for THE COMPROMISE martedì, 9 gennaio 2018 21:15 by madseason
The Compromise - Overload

I'd like to start the featured artists' 2018 with a band from Turin, Italy. The Compromise were born in 2013 and released their first EP Motionless in December 2014.

The band shared the stage with famed international acts Bury Tomorrow, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, The Ataris" and Slimboy and played in renowned festivals like Sziget Festival and Emergenza Festival.

The Compromise have a new single out: titled Overload, it was mixed and mastered at Fusix Studio in Turin and released last December 15. It's a strong song that should appeal to fans of 3 Doors Down, heavier The Calling and other cool alternative rock bands that were great in the first years of the new millennium.

Check the video for Overload clicking on the image and stream other nice tracks from The Compromise on Spotify.
