(October 17, 2016) – Susan Boyle, the singing sensation who catapulted to international stardom in 2009, returns with her seventh album in seven years, A Wonderful World.

 

In a first for a British artist, Susan Boyle was granted rare permission by the Nat King Cole Estate to sing a virtual duet with the legendary performer and a stunning version of ‘When I Fall In Love’ was mastered.

 

Featuring spectacular renditions of well-known tracks including Madonna’s, “Like A Prayer”, Robbie William’s “Angels,” a duet with Michael Bolton “Somewhere Out There” and Paul McCartney’s “Mull of Kintyre,” A Wonderful World is the ultimate Christmas gift that will transcend Christmas.

 

Talking about her seventh album Susan said; “I have really enjoyed making this album. It was great to get back into the recording studio and do what I enjoy the most. There’s been a lot of speculation over the past year but I’m great, back on track and this album proves it. I wanted to create an album that families could enjoy, something for everyone, an album that can be played all year and evoke memories. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a huge Madonna fan and to be able to perform ‘Like A Prayer’ was a real highlight. As the first British artist to have been able to perform a duet with Nat King Cole’s vocals, it’s a real honour, seven years on I still get to surprise people.”

 

A Wonderful World was produced in Glasgow by Steve Anderson. Steve worked on Susan’s last album, Hope, and is a highly regarded producer who has also worked with Lionel Richie, Kylie Minogue, Emeli Sande and Westlife.

 

Known best for her element of surprise and a powerful and heart stopping voice, Susan is still a global top selling artist. With phenomenal album sales, record breaking achievements and multi-platinum chart domination, sell out UK & USA tours and feature film roles- Susan has come a long way from the Britain’s Got Talent stage in 2009.

 

To date her previous six albums, I Dreamed a Dream, The Gift, Someone To Watch Over Me, Standing Ovation, Home For Christmas and Hope have sold over 23 million copies and stormed to the top of the charts in over 30 countries.

 

A Wonderful World is available for Pre Order now.

DIRTY HEADS LAUNCH NEW SINGLE “OXYGEN”

DIRTY HEADS

DIRTY HEADS LAUNCH NEW SINGLE, “OXYGEN” WITH VIDEO PREMIERE TODAY! (Watch HERE)

 BAND CONTINUES ON HEADLINING U.S. AND CANADIAN TOUR

“…their fifth studio album is bringing them a new level of visibility.” – The Today Show

 

“…a killer new album.” –Noisey/Vice

 

“The California-based act have refined their blend of hip-hop, reggae and rock to

present their most polished release yet.” –Alternative Press

 

 

Toronto, ON, October 17, 2016—After kicking off the first leg of their headlining, U.S. Fall tour earlier this month, DIRTY HEADS unleash the video for “Oxygen,” their highly anticipated second single from their current self-titled release, out via Five Seven Music, TODAY! With an easy-tempo, and a low-key message of perseverance, the hip-hop infused song is already gaining momentum at alternative radio with early adds that include ALT 98.7 in Los Angeles, KDGE in Dallas and KUCD in Honolulu. DIRTY HEADS will headline State Theatre tomorrow in Portland, ME, with Canadian stops with New Beat Fund and RDGLDGRN serving as direct support, see full tour dates below.

 

 

Directed and Produced by Collier Landry & Jared Watson, the video for “Oxygen” is a bit of a departure in aesthetic for the band.  Lead vocalist Jared Watson explains, “We wanted to visually capture the vibe of the song. It’s very ethereal and a bit Eerie, minimal at some points. so we wanted to have that same feel. I referenced the kill bill fight scene where the lights turn off and it goes all blue and back lit with silhouettes. Its a song that I feel people will put their own meaning to and apply their own life experiences to, so we wanted the video vague enough to leave that open and not put a story to it.”

 

 

DIRTY HEADS’ self-titled 5th studio album, released July 15 via Five Seven Music, debuted at #1 on the Independent Label Albums Chart and #2 on the Alternative and Rock Charts. Recently the band headlined the Huntridge Stage as Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas last month. DIRTY HEADS made their national morning TV debut on NBC’s The Today Show this summer performing the fell-good summer anthem, “That’s All I Need.”  Watch the performance HERE.

Cherub

“Two Nashville electro pop bros and a Southern-rap vet team up on a dance track that’ll make you want to stay on the floor until you pass out.” –Rolling Stone

 

“If you love 90’s R&B, pop melodies, and raw lyrics about drugs, sex, and partying – and we know you do – then you need to check out Cherub” – Complex

 

“a mixture of downright sexy pop, funky electro beats…a nonstop string of live shows in which they shred on guitars, talk boxes and other on-stage accessories that turn the venue into a sort of disco-fueled brothel.” – Thump

 

(Toronto ON, October 17th, 2016) Nashville duo Cherub’s new album, Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence, on Columbia Records in stores now.

ABOUT CHERUB

Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber—shake, stir, and serve up a tasty brew of dance, funk, rock, and electronic music. Think of a tattooed 21st century Parliament-Funkadelic primed for festival stages far and wide, and you’ve got a decent starting point. Straight out of Nashville, TN, the boys initially met at Middle Tennessee State University in 2010. After a handful of independent albums, CHERUB’s “Doses & Mimosas” began to organically generate serious buzz. It caught the attention of Columbia Records who signed the boys in 2013. A year later, they cooked up their full-length debut, Year of the Caprese, and embarked on a whirlwind ride. Driven by the re-released breakout “Doses & Mimosas,” which racked up over 41 million Spotify streams, the band made their television debut on CONAN, topped HypeMachine, and received props from Rolling Stone, Interview Magazine, The Guardian, Paste, Complex, and many more. They built a diehard and dedicated fan base throwing down on cleverly titled tours like “The Blow’d Tour,” “So… YOU DTF Tour?,” and its obligatory sequel the “…STILL DTF Tour?” Moreover, they became a worldwide main stage festival attraction, tearing up Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Outside Lands, Osheaga, Summer Camp, and even Summer Sonic in Japan.

 

Along the way, they began assembling what would become their second major label full-length, Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence. 2015 saw them welcome producer and drummer Nick Curtis and guitarist Jordan “JB” Bartlett into the live band, and it definitely made a mark on the creative process. The first single, “Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence,” struts along on a funky, fiery, and fierce bass line, finger-snaps, and a guitar jangle. In between a talk box transmission that Dr. Dre would approve of, CHERUB churn out a neo-funk disco epic. Across the album, the music shuffles from dusty boom bap-style drums a la OutKast into shimmering guitar tones as if DJ Premier were producing Cocteau Twins. It’s a lively and lush sonic palette, breathing new life into nostalgia. Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence represents the next natural step for CHERUB.

 “Long live As Lions”– Metal Hammer

“You’d be silly to ignore As Lions”– Rock Sound

(Ontaio, ON, October 14, 2016) — British rockers AS LIONS release their eagerly awaited debut EP, AFTERMATH today (October 14)via Better Noise Records.

Upon the release of the EP,As Lions reveal the music video for new single and title-track “Aftermath.” In keeping with the track’s powerful lyrics, the video portrays a heart-wrenching scene of a rescue team searching rubble and ruin for life, as a child lays desperate, buried beneath the destruction. Entwined with an explosive live performance of the band, the story ends with hope and liberation as the boy is discovered and brought to safety.
WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “AFTERMATH” HERE

 “Aftermath” is the first single taken from the EP. The EP features four dynamic tracks encompassing grinding rock riffs and rhythms with majestically sweeping strings, stately piano tinklings and atmospheric electronics, topped with frontman Austin Dickinson’s soaring vocals and introspective lyrics.

Comprised of Dickinson, guitarist and keyboardist Conor O’Keefe, guitarist Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting and drummer Dave Fee, As Lions are the evolution of British rock. Standing by their mission to create “the biggest, baddest hard rock we could, and on an almost cinematic scale,” the band has worked with award-winning producer David Bendeth (Of Mice & Men, Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon) and Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, In This Moment).

The band has played sold out shows in the UK, performing with metal/rock pioneers, Trivium, and making festival appearances this past summer at Camden Rocks and Download. As Lions are now gearing up to bring Aftermath and their explosive live show to the US during their 36-date tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, and Sixx:A.M.

US ARENA TOUR KICKS OFF OCTOBER 18

 

(Toronto, ON, October 14, 2016) – SIXX:A.M. unleash the first new track, “We Will Not Go Quietly,” from their November 18 release,  Vol. 2 Prayers for the Blessed TODAY! Fans, who pre-order the new album via iTunes HERE, will instantly receive a download of the song in their iTunes library. Exclusive Vol. 2 Prayers for the Blessed album bundles are available HERE. The official video for the outsider anthem also premieres today and was directed by iconic director Wayne Isham (Michael Jackson, Muse, Britney Spears).  Filmed during their show in Edmonton, Alberta last month, the video offers viewers a “show-day-in-the-life-of” the band, in addition to their powerful on-stage energy. Watch it HERE.   “We Will Not Go Quietly” can also be heard as the theme song of A&E’s Gangland Undercover, which begins airing December 2 (check local listings).

 

“’We Will Not Go Quietly’ takes the call-to-action spirit of “Rise” [from Vol. 1 Prayers For The Damned] to a whole new level,” says lead vocalist James Michael. “It reflects the raw passion with which mankind fights as some of our most basic human rights are being threatened. We are excited to share the song and video with everyone and hope that it inspires people to continue to strive to make the world a better place.”

 

Written and recorded at the same time as Vol. 1, Prayers For The Damned (April 2016), Vol. 2 Prayers For The Blessed acts as a companion piece to the first volume while simultaneously elevating the band’s sound in every area.  “This band has always found the light within the darkness and I think that’s especially evident on this album,” Ashba explains. Fans can sample songs from the album NOW via the album teaser HERE. From the lead single, “We Will Not Go Quietly”, to the operatic show stopper, “Maybe It’s Time”, and groove-driven, radio-ready rocker, “That’s Gonna Leave A Scar,”  Vol. 2 Prayers For The Blessed displays the many sides of Sixx:A.M.‘s sound, something that the band was able to develop by ramping up the amount of time they spent out on the road. “We really found ourselves onstage and it’s influencing the way we write,” says Nikki Sixx. “We started focusing on our music not only as songwriters and lyricists but also stayed conscious of what would transfer over live to the audience.”

 

Touring three continents this year, Sixx:A.M. are excited to share their music with a global audience and perform the songs from Prayers For The Blessed. After wrapping up live performances across Canada and Japan, the band will embark on the U.S. leg of their tour which kicks off October 18 at Verizon Arena in Little Rock, AR and includes stops in Denver, Las Vegas, Anaheim and Philadelphia. Tickets for the tour can be purchased HERE.

ABOUT SIXX:A.M.:

Formed in 2007 on the streets of Los Angeles, SIXX:A.M.’s mission has remained steadfast: to provide iconic, hard rock to the masses that boasts unrivaled musicianship and a loyal legion of devoted fans beyond compare. Comprised of vocalist James Michael, guitarist Dj Ashba, and bassist Nikki Sixx, SIXX:A.M. is truly a culmination of each artist’s talents, taking from each of their names (Sixx, Ashba, and Michael). In addition to providing unparalleled vocals, Michael is also a highly acclaimed producer, having worked with Kelly Clarkson, Halestorm, and Papa Roach, and boasts the producing and mixing credits for all of the SIXX:A.M. albums released.  To date, the band has released 4 studio albums with Vol. 2 Prayers For The Blessed,  out November 18; The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack (2007), This Is Gonna Hurt (2011), and Modern Vintage (2014), and Vol. 1 Prayers For The Damned (2016),  and 3 EP’s; X-Mas In Hell (2008), Life Is Beautiful (2008), and 7 (2011). The band has come a long way since their live debut in 2007 at Crash Mansion, performing 5 songs off of The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, an audible, introspective recall of Sixx’s autobiography, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star. A hero for the cause, Nikki spoke on the epidemic in Washington during National Recovery Day, creating an even deeper, more personable bond with the artists. In combination with it’s success and topical importance, The Heroin Diaries is currently being made into a Broadway play, further proving its topic’s impact and importance to society.  With so much to say and a passion for performing, Sixx penned his next book, This Is Gonna Hurt, that was soon accompanied by an album of the same name. Both books received notoriety as New York Times bestsellers. This began the band’s longstanding relationship with their fans that has been built off of trust, relatabiity, and honesty, in combination with their heavy-hitting rock anthems. Since, the trio have performed alongside rock mainstays such as Mötley Crüe, and headlined a nearly sold out 2015 US tour with special guest Apocolyptica. SIXX:A.M. have  been facing one of the busiest years of their career confident and undaunted, packing 2016 with the release of a double album in two installments, touring the globe, co-headlining  nearly all of the major US rock festivals including Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma as well as playing the biggest European summer festivals such as Download Festival, Rock am Ring, Sweden Roc Gods of Metal and many more. Having sold over 1 million albums globally, SIXX:A.M. have set the bar for rock excellence and this year will solidify their spot as genre royalty.

(New York, New York – October 11th, 2016) – New dynamic DJ duo Lost Kings announced their signing to Disruptor Records / RCA Records last week.  In celebration of the signing, the duo released their brand new song, “Phone Down” ft. Emily Warren. Click here to Listen. The track was written by Scott Harris, Philip Anthony Leigh, Matthew Thomas Paul Holmes, Norris Shanholtz, Robert Abisi, Emily Warren and produced by the duo.

The pair comments on the meaning behind the track, “it’s something universal everybody wants to say, but is too scared to actually say it,” Dr. No exclaims. “We loved the vocal so much that we wanted the music to match that level of emotion.” “To us, it’s so relevant,” Rob agrees. “There’s a huge message to be in the present. Everybody lives vicariously through a screen. Instead, it’s about living your actual life and not getting lost in what cool photos people are posting.”

The pair will play sets in New York, Washington, DC, Montreal and Pittsburgh over the next few weeks. For information on tickets please visit here.

Lost Kings consists of Los Angeles based Robert Gainley and Dr. No. In a little over a year, they have risen up through the ranks of new producer talents gaining over 30 million plays on Soundcloud, over 25 million streams on Spotify and have had 13 #1s on Hypemachine.

JUICY J RELEASES NEW SONG “BALLIN” FEATURING KANYE WEST

1logo

October 5, 2016—Los Angeles, CA— Academy Award-winning rapper and songwriter/producer Juicy J shares his new song, “Ballin” featuring Kanye West. The track premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show as the “World Record” of the day last week. “Ballin” is taken from Juicy J’s upcoming sophomore album and is now available at all digital partners.

The dynamic track is an ode to the opulent and features production from TM88, Crazy Mike and Juicy J himself. Juicy J and Kanye West first teamed up back in 2006 for a remix of Three 6 Mafia’s “Side to Side.” “Ballin” is the result of a mutual admiration and respect of each other’s artistry, and is certainly not the last collaboration the two have on the way.  A video for the song was released exclusively on TIDAL, after having been screened at an exclusive event early last week in Los Angeles.

 

The song is the latest to be taken from Juicy J’s sophomore full-length, Rubba Band Business: The Album, which is set for release this coming winter on Columbia Records/Kemosabe Records. The album also includes previously shared single “No English” featuring Travis Scott.  It comes off the heels of a recent successful run of hard-hitting mixtapes, including #MUSTBENICE, which was released last week too much attention. Following the success of his 2013 solo debut, Stay TrippyRubba Band Business: The Album manages to edge his music to new creative heights, adding yet another forward-thinking notch to his robust resume.

 

About Juicy J

Jordan Houston, best known by his stage name Juicy J, is a hip hop recording artist and record producer from Memphis, TN. Preferring the title producer over rapper, Juicy J makes uncompromised music that is relatable and chart hitting – he joins a very small, elite group of artists who have earned both an Academy Award and a U.S. Billboard Hot 100 No.1.  Juicy J’s rise to fame began in 1991 as one of the original members of platinum selling Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia. The group spawned an eclectic series of hits over their 20 year span including “Stay Fly,” “Sippin On Some Sizzurp,” “Lolli Lolli” and the Academy Award Winning “Hard Out Here For A Pimp.” 2002 marked Juicy’s first foray into a solo career with the release of Chronicles of The Juice Man. Since his debut, Juicy has released countless mixtapes – including the most recent release with Wiz Khalifa titled TGOD Mafia Presents: Rude Awakening – and worked on an array of successful collaborations. His work with pop royalty Katy Perry for the track “Dark Horse” saw Juicy J being awarded once again; receiving a Grammy® nomination and winning both an American Music Award and MTV Video Music Award. Pitchfork said it best when they recalled Juicy’s dedication to his craft; “Juicy J never sounds tired, never phones it in. He’s the consummate pro.” Rubba Band Business: The Album is only an extension of what is to come in the next year that will continue to set the veteran industry magnet ahead of the rest. Outside of his robust recording career, Juicy J is the owner of his own line of Cannabis, Green Suicide, as well as the new face of Colt 45. Juicy J is also a partner in Taylor Gang Entertainment—an   entertainment management, record label and production company—alongside collaborator Wiz Khalifa, in which he serves as A&R.
