JIBE: epic tales from an epic band mercoledì, 8 novembre 2017 22:53 by madseason
Jibe - Release

Jibe, the alternative rock band from Dallas, TX, best known for their song Yesterday’s Gone from their 2003 album Uprising, is back with a brand new full-length record.

Initially active from 1994 to 2004, Jibe reformed in 2015 and released their fourth studio LP Epic Tales Of Human Nature on June 9, 2017. The full album was originally released to fans who pre-ordered it, and had a wider release on October 6, 2017, via sixtyfouronthefloor/ Kobalt.

Epic Tales Of Human Nature was recorded at Orb Recording studios in Austin, TX, produced by Jibe with Blue October's bass player Matt Noveskey (IAMDYNAMITE, Cavo, Alpha Rev) and mixed by Grammy award-winning producer/engineer Toby Wright (Alice In Chains, 3 Doors Down, Stone Sour).

Epic Tales Of Human Nature includes the singles The Human Condition, We've Only Just Begun and the newest one, Release (watch the live video clicking on the image).

If you want an healthy dose of high-quality alternative rock magnified by singer Joe Grah's vigorously melodic vocals (remember him fronting Los Angeles short-lived powerful rock act Loser with John 5 on guitar?), then stream Epic Tales Of Human Nature on Spotify now.

CAVO: building new Bridges venerdì, 8 gennaio 2016 00:51 by madseason
Cavo - Bridges

New music from Cavo, at last. The St. Louis, Missouri, rockers have a brand new album to be released on January 29. It's titled Bridges  and was co-funded by a succesful PledgeMusic campaign; it was recorded in Austin, Texas with bass guitarist of Blue October, Matt Noveskey.

Bridges will be out 4 years after the release of Cavo's latest studio album Thick As Thieves. As vocalist Casey Walker likes to tell it, at the time "there just wasn't anything left to give." The band had tried everything, so they decided to stop. But then something happened a while later. The want slowly started creeping back in.

But this time something had changed. For once, it wasn't about what someone else wanted. It was only about the four of them and what they wanted. No label, no producer, no agent, no manager, no one but them. "This record is completely ours," Walker adds. "If other people like it, great. If they don't, that's fine too."

They decided to call it Bridges, because they felt like they had crossed over to someplace new. A place where Cavo could just… be.

Wasa Tusa: album number two for IAMDYNAMITE giovedì, 13 agosto 2015 21:54 by madseason
IAMDYNAMITE - Wasa Tusa

Michigan-based duo IAMDYNAMITE (Chris Martin aka C-Mart and Chris Phillips aka C²) are back with their indie/synth wave/pop '80s-influenced sound. Wasa Tusa is the title of their sophomore release, delivered last week via Brando Records.

The new record was produced by Blue October's bass player Matt Noveskey –who also produced the band’s debut record SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC– and, in the words of Chris Martin, is "our first record where the recording was the art form, while our first record was more of a documentation of our live show."

Wasa Tusa is on Spotify, so you can stream the whole album, featuring the "sunny" lead single In The Summer, just clicking here.

IAMDYNAMITE in Stereo venerdì, 9 marzo 2012 00:05 by madseason
iamdynamite

American indie/garage-rock duo IAMDYNAMITE (Chris Martin aka C-Mart and Chris Phillips aka C²) will release its debut album "SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC" on June 5th, via Brando Records in USA, while a German release is expected for today through Neo - Kanoon Records (with distribution by Sony Music).

IAMDYNAMITE are managed by Blue October's bass player Matt Noveskey, who also produced the album, with Jay Ruston (Bowling For Soup, Metallica, Jars Of Clay, Meat Loaf) mixing it.   The duo's style is quite unique: just guitars and drums with an indie raw approach, groovy hooks and somewhat of a western movie soundtrack feel.

IAMDYNAMITE's just released a video for the single "Stereo": watch it now by clicking on the image above.
Also, from March 22nd to 31st, Martin and Chris will play 8 headline shows in Germany, where they already performed last year supporting Blue October. Find out the details of the dates here.
