Since the announcement of the forthcoming album, Passenger has been busking all over the UK and Europe, and broadcasting these events live to his 3.6 Million Facebook fans.  Next month, he’ll make a quick solo stop on this side of the pond for a short run of intimate live dates (all sold out), as well as festival appearances in Montreal (Osheaga Music and Arts Festival), Edmonton (Edmonton Folk Festival), Nashville (Live On The Green) and Lyons, CO (Rocky Mountains Folks Festival). Passenger also plans to busk in between these dates where possible and will announce details via Facebook and Twitter.

 

Young As The Morning Old As The Sea sees Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, once again co-produce alongside Chris Vallejo (INXS, Empire of the Sun), this time at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios in Auckland, as well as Linear studios in Sydney.  The epic landscapes in both New Zealand and on a recent trip Mike took to Iceland lent inspiration to create a newly panoramic album, with themes of relationships and the passing of time that are at once personal and universal. The album was written alongside an incredible band of musicians – Ben Edgar (guitar), Rob Calder (bass), Peter Marin (drums) Jon Solo (keys.)

 

Passenger has seen massive worldwide success since the release of multi-platinum “Let Her Go” from album All The Little LightsThe accompanying video just joined YouTube’s elite The Billion View Club, only the 23rd music video to do so.  Passenger released Whispers in 2014, which debuted at #2 in Canada and #12 on the Billboard 200. He spent the next two years playing sold-out shows and large festivals across the world.

WHITE LUNG UNVEILS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR ‘DEAD WEIGHT’ WHITE LUNG SHORTLISTED FOR POLARIS MUSIC PRIZE

1

Canadian punk band White Lung has topped numerous “Best Album So Far” lists this year including Exclaim!, Stereogum, Rolling Stone, Vulture, Paste, Consequence of Sound, NME and more for their latest and most mature effort to date – Paradise. Now the band has been shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize alongside artists including Carly Rae Jepsen, Grimes, and Kaytranada.

Today, White Lung has unveiled the music video for ‘Dead Weight’ – directed by John Stavas and co-produced by Deap Vally’s Lindsey Troy. The clip features lead singer Mish Barber-Way head-banging her way through the track in hyper-kinetic fast forward. Much like the song, it’s an all-out assault on the senses and not for the faint of heart, or those prone to seizures.

Stavas has this to say of the treatment: “Dead Weight is such a heavy hitting song and I wanted to make a video that fit its relentless and rhythmic feel. Mish might never want to headbang again. She deserves a neck rub!”

Wild Beasts share new single ‘Celestial Creatures’

Following the release of the first two singles, Wild Beasts have given us more insight into their forthcoming Boy King, out August 5th on Domino, with album stunner ‘Celestial Creatures’ – listen HERE. Where ‘Get My Bang’ and ‘Big Cat’ showcased a bold new direction, ‘Celestial Creatures’ channels classic Wild Beasts and features Hayden Thorpe’s angelic voice front and center. Last week, the foursome gave fans a glimpse into the making of the ‘Big Cat’ video, watch the behind-the-scenes footage HERE.

Listen to Celestial Creatures on Spotify HERE
Listen to Celestial Creatures on Apple Music HERE

This follows the videos for ‘Get My Bang’, which can be viewed HERE, and ‘Big Cat,’ which can be viewed HERE.

The band will be in New York following the release of Boy King. They’ll be playing a sold out album release show at Baby’s All Right on Wednesday August 10th.
Please be in touch for media requests.

Where 2014’s Present Tense album found Wild Beasts in reflective mood, absorbing a fascination with online culture and electronic music, Boy King has them, as Fleming puts it, “back to being pissed off”. The quartet’s ever-present knack for sensual melody via Hayden Thorpe and Fleming’s dueting vocals, Ben Little’s sinuous guitar groove and Chris Talbot’s potent rhythm section carries in Boy King an aggressive, snarling and priapic beast that delves into the darker side of masculinity and Thorpe’s own psyche. As Hayden himself says, “After five records there had to be an element of ‘what the fuck?'”.

The raw pop of Boy King’s songs are the perfect foil to Thorpe’s libidinous lyricism: “it became apparent that that guitar almost became the character within the songs, that phallic character, the all-conquering male,” he says. “I’m letting my inner Byron fully out, I thought I’d tucked him away, but he came screaming back like the Incredible Hulk.” Here lies Boy King’s greatest success. Between the slide of prowling aggression and interior darkness, there are glorious, gorgeous moments. It’s yet another incomparable Wild Beasts record; a visceral, sensual and jolting body of work that acts as a remarkable soundtrack to the early 21st century male malaise. Or as Thorpe puts it: “I think Boy King is an apocalyptic record. It’s about swimming in the abyss. When you think about sex, you’ve got to think about death, they’re one and the same.”

Boy King will be released on heavyweight 12″ vinyl including album download card, with a deluxe edition including a bonus 7″ of two bonus songs available via the Wild Beasts online store. The album will also be released on standard and deluxe CD formats, with the deluxe edition including a 12-page booklet, as well as digital download.

Motley Crew

Experience the band’s final show in home starting July 16th

Including Vince Neil’s emotional thank you speech

 

(Toronto, ON. – July 13, 2016) – Beginning July 16, rock music fans can experience the final performance from iconic rock band Mötley Crüe during a month-long Pay-Per-View and Video On-Demand run of “Mötley Crüe: The End.” The once-in-a-lifetime event – held at the sold-out Staples Center in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve 2015 – will be available through leading cable, fiber and satellite television providers in the U.S. and Canada.

 

Completing their 35-year touring career as a band, this epic concert viewing experience gives Mötley Crüe’s fans a chance to relive mega-hits such as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls Girls Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Dr. Feelgood.” In January, 2014, Mötley Crüe held a press conference announcing their Final Tour, complete with a “cessation of touring” agreement signed by all members prohibiting any and all future live engagements under the Mötley Crüe name. Mötley Crüe’s two-year concert trek saw the band — Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums) — perform across five continents (North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia) for a total of more than 164 shows in 72 markets grossing over $100 million.

 

Known for their over-the-top production, Mötley Crüe did not disappoint for their last show ever on New Year’s Eve: from massive, cutting-edge pyro, including Nikki Sixx’s bass guitar spitting fire over 30 ft. into the air, and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum roller coaster, amongst many other spectacular elements. Lead singer, Vince Neil, delivered an emotional “thank you” speech to the audience, while the band supplied next-level, high-octane fueled energy, ringing in the New Year on stage with thousands of balloons raining down on the crowd. The grand finale of the show included a blow-out performance of their hit single, “Kickstart My Heart” with Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil floating above the audience in far-reaching “cherry-pickers.” Leaving fans in tears, the show concluded with an emotional encore rendition of “Home Sweet Home” from the second stage riser in the center of the audience.

 

“Mötley Crüe: The End” was produced by Nate Parienti and Live Alliance, directed by Christian Lamb with Jeff Tremaine, creator of the “Jackass” series, directing the documentary segment.
