Stream: Stavesacre - Accelerating Into Brake Lights

I am very proud and humbled to present this brand new track titled “Accelerating Into Brake Lights” from the band Stavesacre off their brand new full length record “MCMXCV”. You can listen and stream the track below. Make sure to pre-order the new record here for all of you that couldn’t get in on the crowd funding campaign. I am totally floored with the new Stavesacre album. It’s everything I had hoped for when I first signed up to contribute to their campaign. There are so many rushed reunion campaigns these days and I’m glad the guys really took their time in perfecting their craft to put out their best material in a decade. It’s on par with some of my faves in their catalog like Speakeasy, How To Live With A Curse, Absolutes, Bull Takes Fighter, and even Friction. This band can easily kick the butts of any of the newer groups just setting up shop on warped tour. I really hope Stavesacre gets some long over due credit and respect with this new album because it is well deserved. This album is everything you’ve come to expect from this seasoned group of musicians and that is PURE PERFECTION! This album is like the perfect continuation of the sound from #HowToLiveWithACurse mixed in with sounds you would have found on #Speakeasy and #BullTakesFighterep I even hear the influential sounds of their first two records: #Absolutes and #Friction. Stavesacre has far outdone themselves with this incredible, awe inspiring set of songs. Flawless production, intelligent songwriting and that unmistakable voice. All you salivating fans that missed out on the first preorders will without a doubt LOVE this album once you get it. Continued →

Exclusive Stream: TAKE - The Dead Will Rise Ep

I am super thrilled to bring you an exclusive stream of the new TAKE Ep. This independent Las Vegas, NV. metal-hardcore-rock hybrid band were around for a few years last decade. They went on hiatus and a member went on to front The Forerunner. Well after several years off this explosive heavy band is back and with a brand new ep to prove once again how powerful their music can be. It’s edgy, it is abrasive, and it is going to hit you over the head like a two ton brick of pure adrenaline. Step into the pit and prepare to throwdown with one of Nevada’s best kept secrets. This my friends is the band TAKE and I present their ep, “The Dead Will Rise”. Listen below. The band’s ep will be out by this Friday on all digital networks. Continued →

Fire The Sun Working on New Full Length With Paul Miner

I am excited to announce that melodic hardcore/punk band, Fire The Sun, are working on a new full length with Paul Miner again and have already laid down some studio tracks.

This will be the first proper follow up to the 2014 debut “An Evolution In The Creation Of a New Self Being”. Stay tuned over the coming weeks for more news and a song stream as soon as it is done.
