The Protest - What Else You Got

Even though they hail from rural Indiana, known more for cornfields than as a "Hot Bed" for Hard Rock and Metal music - the members of The Protest have embraced that American heartland work ethic and used their talent, drive and determination to bring the band's music to a global audience.

Positive energy is abundant in their live shows and is showcased in the new album Legacy, due out July 13th on Rockfest Records/Sony.

Their new single What Else You Got is a fist pumping anthem about never backing down and fighting on despite adversity. Check the video now clicking on the image.

AERIALS are back Drawing Blood martedì, 12 giugno 2018 21:54 by madseason
Aerials - Drawing Blood

I'm happy to report that Brisbane, Australia, amazing alternative rock band Aerials has a brand new song out.

It's titled Drawing Blood and it's their hardest hitting single to-date.

The boys recently teamed up with producer-duo Clint Vincent and Luke Palmer from rock heavyweights Dead Letter Circus, to record Drawing Blood. After months of hashing out demos in pre-production, the band settled on Drawing Blood as the first release of the new batch on the basis that it represented a new heavier direction for the band. The track morphed its way through five different versions, as the band explored new sonic territory and attempted to harness the energy of the song's lyrical theme - overwhelming regret.

Drawing Blood was digitally released last Friday, June 8, and it's a kick-ass song you simply can't miss. Watch the official video now clicking on the image.

Independent one-man band Aviators has a brand new album out: titled Let There Be Fire, it was released last May 25.

Ranging from orchestral rock to contemplative synthpop, the album places you in a world of ice and darkness and promises hope that one day, at the end of our adventure, fire will rise again.

VIKINGO! living in a one-man-town martedì, 5 giugno 2018 21:39 by madseason
VIKINGO! - One Man Town

VIKINGO! is a LA based rock band formed last year by two Colombians, a Norwegian and an American. The four released their debut single, One Man Town, last Friday, June 1.

One Man Town was recorded at the famed 4th Street Recording (Muse, The Beach Boys, Bad Suns) and was mastered by Dale Becker (Macklemore, Neil Diamond). The members of VIKINGO! are all producers, so it was fitting that they produced this single themselves.
"This is a song about being stubborn. It's about proudly sticking to your guns and shooting down anyone who gets in your way" said singer/guitarist Daniel Jimenez Afanador about the single, adding "It's about that moment you realize you've burned all your bridges and you end up carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You end up living in a one-man-town."

One Man Town is a rocker that fuses the riff-oriented, heavy sound of Queens Of The Stone Age, the punk aesthetic of The Clash and the raw, indie sense of melodies of The Raconteurs.

Stream/download One Man Town clicking on the image and stay tuned for further news about VIKINGO!'s debut EP, to be released later this year.

Hidden Hospitals - Liars

Alternative progressive rock band from Chicago, Hidden Hospitals, released their new full-length album, Liars, last Friday, May 18, via MSTATEMENT/Spartan Records.

On Liars the sound oscillates around electronica and modern rock, nostalgia and love of today's sonic solutions.
