The new life of HALFLIVES Monday, 12 September 2016 15:12 by madseason
Halflives - Mayday

Halflives is an Italian alternative rock band from Modena, home of the Zampone.

Raised from the ashes of the band Over (that's definitely over now), Halflives spent the past twelve months writing catchy, passionate and efficient songs now ready to be released as the band's debut album.

Empowered by the strong and clear voice of their singer Linda Battilani and the solid driving of four talented musicians, Halflives have built a loyal fanbase all over Europe and the UK, that is now highly expecting them with their new material.

Halflives is one of the few Italian alternative rock bands that sounds convincing to my ears. Watch the just released official video for their first single Mayday clicking on the image and expect more news about this much promising act.

Mayday: RAIN CITY ROCKERS' debut is out Sunday, 21 September 2014 21:48 by madseason
Rain City Rockers - Mayday

"Mayday" is the debut album for Rain City Rockers, a sort of powerpop/melodic punk supergroup featuring Tom Thacker (Sum 41, Gob), Anthony Bleed (Die Mannequin), Darrin Pfeiffer (Goldfinger) and frontman Andrew Conroy.

"I kinda got the idea [for the album] a few years ago when I was in San Francisco," Conroy explains. "I was going vinyl shopping and looking through all the record I had purchased, some Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, and the thing I really liked about those records is the fact that they were recorded live off the floor with no click tracks - with great musicians."

Attempting to bridge the gap between the 60's and 70's and the 21st century, Conroy took that concept to heart, gathering the band to record "Mayday" in one day.

This absolutely amazing album was released last Tuesday via Flashlight Music Group. Watch the video of Rain City Rockers recording the first single "Saint Babe" and stream the whole record on SoundCloud.
