Philadelphia psych rock quintet RUBY THE HATCHET has premiered a cover of Uriah Heep’s 1972 “Easy Livin’” via a new music video. A staple of their recent live sets, the band recorded the cover at Retro City Studios in NJ. The group commented on the cover:

Uriah Heep is a band favorite and still an unsung hero of sorts in our opinion. Many of their songs make our karaoke cuts, but Easy Livin’ was especially fun to figure out now that we have been toying with live three part harmonies. All of the high notes in our cover are vocally supported by Johnny, and of course Owen…still trying to put a mic in front of Lake. Plus, when you have someone like Sean playing organ, a Heep cover is a must.”

This cover is excellent and sent chills up my back to my brain. Good times! Ruby The Hatchet just thrill me whenever I give them a listen. I have never been let down by this incredible act yet.

RUBY THE HATCHET will kick off an upcoming North American tour with Kadavar this Thursday December 5th in Atlanta, GA. The tour runs through December 21st and a full list of dates is available below.

Additionally, RUBY THE HATCHET will release their three full-length albums and EP on limited edition, colored cassette via Brutal Panda Records. The cassettes will be available on December 6th and can be ordered at THIS LOCATION. So sick!

RUBY THE HATCHET are currently writing their follow-up to 2017’s celebrated album Planetary Space Child. A 2020 release is expected with more info to follow.

Asking Alexandria release ‘The Violence’ Sikdope remix with video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 12:50 PM (PST)

EDM DJ Sikdope has done a pretty cool remix for “The Violence” by Asking Alexandria.

Speaking on his bombastic remix of Asking Alexandria’s latest arena-filling anthem, Sikdope says:
“I’ve been a fan of Asking Alexandria for as long as I can remember. They’re also great friends of mine, so of course I was thrilled when they asked me to remix “The Violence” (also one of my favorite tracks this year). I sang in a rock band as a teenager so remixing this track felt like second nature to me; I got to go back to my roots but also showcase the evolution of my sound. This remix feels like such an accomplishment for me because when I was in a band as a kid, my dream was to have a release on Sumerian… now I’m on it as a DJ.”
Adding to this, Asking Alexandria guitarist, Ben Bruce says
“I’m a firm believer that the best collaborations come from when artists come together through a true and real connection. A great collaboration can’t be forced, they are born from a mutual respect and passion. In this case Sikdope and myself had been friends and mutual fans of each other’s work for many years prior to this collaboration. We went out for dinner one night and decided, spur of the moment, to collaborate! I’m so excited that we finally got to work together and through combined efforts have created such a MONSTER of a tune!”

Neil Fallon is the lyricist, singer, and rhythm guitar player of the rock band CLUTCH. What you might not know, is that since 2017, he’s also been on the board of the non-profit organisation INNOCENT LIVES FOUNDATION.

Based in the United States but working globally, the ILF is committed to helping children by unmasking anonymous online predators and aiding law enforcement to bring them to justice. Through open source intelligence gathering, the ILF create dossiers on possible child exploiters by searching the Internet for information and scouring the dark web for proof. Once evidence is found, the ILF turns the dossiers over to the appropriate law enforcement agencies. In 2019 more than 80 of the dossiers produced by the ILF are being used by law enforcement to track, capture, and and apprehend child predators. The ILF is a 501c3 charitable organisation and relies solely on donations.

Now, Fallon has organised a special online auction of rare and sought after rock ‘n roll memorabilia to benefit the Innocent Lives Foundation.

The auction lots include signed guitars from Slipknot, My Chemical Romance, No Doubt, Zakk Wylde, Thursday, and Clutch. Also up for bids are signed posters from the Foo Fighters and Black Label Society. Finally, there is a limited edition (#21 of 25) black and white photo print of Chris Cornell, courtesy of Andrew Stuart and approved by the Cornell estate.

When asked why he wanted to organise an auction for the ILF, Fallon responded, “No one wants to hear, let alone talk, about the topic of child abuse. We can choose to look away, but the victims don’t have that option. I realized that if I am in a position to help, how could I not? Putting together this auction is an easy thing to do for kids that need our help so desperately.”

Interested fans can place bids at: auctions.innocentlivesfoundation.org.

Bidding starts on November 25th at 11am EST (8am PST / 4pm GMT / 5pm CET) and concludes on December 7th at 11:59pm EST.

Fallon returns to the UK with CLUTCH for headline shows pre-Christmas, with special guests Graveyard and Kamchatka. For tickets, visit www.pro-rock.com.

About the Innocent Lives Foundation
The ILF uses experts from around the globe to save children and stop the spread of child abuse material, which can include child pornography, child erotica, and content displaying any type of child abuse. They create technology and processes to combat child abuse material. They use this technology to assist law enforcement in bringing predators to justice.

Lo-Pan release mind bending new video for ‘Savage Heart’

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 12:18 PM (PST)

Lo-Pan return with a staggeringly cool new music video for their song “Savage Heart.” This trippy and creative clip will make even straight edge kids feel like they swam underwater to the Moon. Into it. Created by collage artist Somsara Rielly using old school stop-motion animation, it is one of the more refreshing videos I have seen in 2019.

Order new album Subtle today! The album is available on LP with a sleeve designed by Eric Palmerlee, and as always for Aqualamb releases, as a 100 page art book/digital download package. RIYL Torche, Nebula, ASG.

“Whatever you may see. The change resides in me. Fluidly. Any genre any dream sphinges, sibling selves and queens. A rollercoaster for each moment mood or picture frame. Please love me the same.’ from “Observation Deck/Shinges Sibling Selves And Queens”

I identify as multi-gender at this point, after a lot of research and therapy and trans groups and not feeling quite like what other people were discussing wrapped up my experiences similarly in a bow. I know that can be confusing for people. They are like ,”what do you want? It has to be this or that.” Nope. MYE.

This is a lengthy interview conducted in July by Kriegmaster Hatesturm of the great anti fascist agitators Neckbeard Deathcamp, kind enough to inquire into the guest artists, overall album background and the reasons behind prominent multi-gender/non binary themes on my new Walking Bombs album Sphinges, Sibling Selves and Queens. The album is out now via Nefarious Industries HERE.

Read the interview BELOW and thank you.

Sin Shake Sin signs to Sumerian Records

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 3:54 PM (PST)

Nashville, Tennessee hard rocker Stacy Hogan has signed his newest project – Sin Shake Sin – to Sumerian Records earlier this week.

Hogan had this to say of the signing:

“Ash [Avildsen, owner of Sumerian Records] called me up, said he really loved the music and that he was excited to help take things to the next level.. I’m excited to be a part of the Sumerian roster along with so many other artists that I enjoy and respect. We share a common vision and Sumerian provides the freedom to cultivate that vision.”

Sin Shake Sin have also released a music video for the track “Nobody’s Gonna Save My Soul.” Of the video Hogan says:

“The video involves a cult-like congregation who’ll stop at nothing to gain followers, only to reveal they aren’t who they seem. This is commentary on those throughout my life who have went out of their way to judge people only for the purpose of distraction away from their own guilt. We see this every day on social media, which can also be like a cult.”

Asking Alexandria release new track “The Violence”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 4:59 PM (PST)

Earlier this week English rockers Asking Alexandria released their latest track “The Violence.”

Complete with a cheesy zombie movie music video that features the boys in the band, the track is the first new track since the band’s 2017 self-titled album.

The music video was written and directed by Jensen Noen and presented by Scissor Films and Sumerian Films. The video follow the plight of every day zombies: Cocaine Shane (Danny Worsnop), Peter (Ben Bruce), Disco Luke (Cameron Liddell), Phat Noah (James Cassells) and Waterboy Eric (Sam Bettley).

Says guitarist Ben Bruce:

“We are back bigger, better, louder and more insane than ever before. This single encompasses everything we have been working towards. Huge guitars, anthemic drums and some of the catchiest, most technically accomplished vocals that Danny has ever delivered, and this is only just the beginning.”

Worsnop adds:

“The Violence was an incredibly rewarding song to create. Ben and I both got to go way outside anything we’d done before and create something fresh and engaging. Thematically the song is about the way mainstream media and politicians manipulate and spread mistruth amongst the people to encourage and create anger, fear, division, and conflict in their quest to control and acquire power. As the history books have shown, this only goes so far before the people stand up and say enough is enough. I hope everyone enjoys what we’ve created here, we had a great time making it, and even more fun shooting the video!”

Asking Alexandria are headed out on the road later this month with Papa Roach and Bad Wolves on the “Who Do You Trust” US Summer Tour. Then in September Asking Alexandria will join Shinedown, Papa Roach, and Savage After Midnight on another North American tour.

Check out “The Violence” and Asking Alexandria tour dates here.

Guns N’ Roses announce 8 new US Tour Dates

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 7:08 AM (PST)

GNR have announced new tour dates Stateside for Not In This Lifetime. I am real tempted to sell a leg and get to the Florida date somehow so I can croon along to “Sorry” and “Civil War”, as I have still never gotten to see the band live. Anyhow, new music is also rumored to be on the way and I hope it is in a classic/ hard rock vein like some of the stronger Chinese tracks such as “I.R.S.”, “Street Of Dreams” and “Chinese Democracy” more than the more experimental stuff. I am sure it is gonna have more bite anyway with the current line-up of OG legends and tour tested newer members who slugged it out and earned their keep.

Pre-sale for the new dates starts on June 18 at 10 a.m. local time, with V.I.P. packages available then. General sale begins on June 21 at 10 a.m. local time.
Newly announced tour dates:
Sep. 25 – Charlotte, NC @ Spectrum Center
Oct. 01 – Jacksonville, FL @ Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena
Oct. 07 – Wichita, KS @ Intrust Bank Arena
Oct. 15 – Lincoln, NE @ Pinnacle Bank Arena
Oct. 23 – Oklahoma City, OK @ Chesapeake Energey Arena
Oct. 29 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Vivint Smart Home Arena
Dec. 01 – Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace
Dec. 02 – Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace

In addition to the above-mentioned shows, GUNS N’ ROSES will make four U.S. festival appearances this fall — Louder Than Life, Austin City Limits, Exit 111 and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.

wahhh…my fans suck and I don’t do nearly enough to condemn their bullshit

CW: A lot of bad shit. 

Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner but I just been busy. I wanted to just live my life and pretend the problem wasn’t as bad as it is but frankly, at this point…fuck you. It is more and more impossible to ignore that the MAJORITY of Stan Culture is extremely toxic, enabling and nihilistic. You think racist black metal trolls are bad? They are. But a lot of the shit pales in comparison to POP culture these days. Like, when did Pop become more nihilistic than the worst elements of the hardcore scene?

A friend who is a teacher the other day was telling me about some four year olds who she caught cornering a frog trying to murder it. They were gleefully laughing. She admonished them and picked it up and rescued it and put it near an empty non-functional pipe where it could escape and one of the kids said ,”I hope it still burns to death.” Frankly, while I know some kids that young don’t have the wits to determine what consequences are real and what is just a game, empathy is still a thing and if you don’t stop sadism like that it festers and can be habit forming. The story honestly made me think of the supporters of numerous pop stars these days.

If you allow nihilism as a social solution of course people will return to it. Ironically, many of them will probably use Frog avatars down the line. Some of them will just gaslight and say you “deserve” it for having an opinion different than them, which in Stan bingo of pathetic overused rhetoric is the box you will check off quickly where they say you are “causing drama”.

As much as I want to bitch about MAGA trolls and Gamergate types though, this article is indeed about Stan culture. Shit has gotten so nihilistic and out of control and NO, I am not gonna dig up “receipts” for everything I mention, assholes. Use your common sense. Anyone with a brain knows and can see daily the shit going on I am gonna talk about. We all know about Nicole Curran getting death threats over nothing. I am just gonna relate stuff I have seen myself or that I know is out there which happened to my partner.

When I was growing up I remember Axl Rose wrote “Get In The Ring”. He called out a lot of people he didn’t like in a song and said he wanted to fight them. In hindsight it is one of the worst songs by one of my favorite bands lyrically (the music kicks ass), and I appreciate how over the years Axl has tried to reform and also move more to the left, vocally opposes Trump and seems like a much better person than he used to be. I also these days CAN admire that he complained himself about who he disliked and didn’t send a mob of people after them.

If you show up to a fight and bring thirty people against one, you are a giant fucking wimp. Even more so if you bring hundreds of trolls and dogpile on someone’s personal Instagram for DAYS or WEEKS or MONTHS for disliking or critiquing your favorite overrated pop star! You got some issues Stan, I think you need some counseling. Err…Get in the ring, motherfucker.

You can make one tweet saying you aren’t crazy about something an artist did or a song and XXXtentacion, Charli XCX fans (the fucking WORST, forget what you heard about the Bey Hive) or other groups will make memes or super sexist psychotic comments bullying you within an inch of your life. They are often WORSE than NRA supporters or Alt-right groups! Seriously, my girlfriend the psych folk artist Globelamp fought for days with a pack of NRA trolls in the wake of her tweeting support for March For Our Lives but even the gun nuts and the right wing incels didn’t get as cruel and dark as some of the stan groups we have tangled with. Yes, I know incels actually murder people. I am just talking about our own experiences.

Globelamp…an actual angel.

There is literally a bingo card of responses you can fill out that you are certain to get from these mob mentality mindless stan dipshits. “Clout”, “drama”, “hater” will all be used against you and if you are, God forbid, a woman with their own opinion numerous people will call you a hoe or a thot or a stripper with no talent.
