PLANCHETTES to Release “The Truth” October 25 via Rise Above Records

. A crackle of electricity. A surge of adrenaline. A whole lot of noise and ass-shaking. In these fake and fractious times, the unerring power of rock ‘n’ roll has never seemed more vital or necessary. But just in case the world needs a reminder, New Orleans’ Planchettes are here to reacquaint us all with the greatest invention of the 20th century. A fiery but finessed power trio with hearts full of swamp blues, rockabilly, ‘60s psych and primitive post-punk, Planchettes are both a twanging, horror-tinged throwback to a pre-digital age and a jolting shot in the arm for today’s thrill-hungry rock scene. . Set be released … Continue reading PLANCHETTES to Release “The Truth” October 25 via Rise Above Records

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell To Release New Album “Very Uncertain Times” October 25th on Rise Above Records

. The more things change, the more they seem to plummet down the shitter. Fortunately, rock ’n’ roll is alive and well and guaranteed to make us all feel a little bit better about the state of things.

In 2019, Hastings’ finest three-man riff squad will save the day yet again with their fourth album, the shrewdly-titled Very Uncertain Times. . Listen to the title track and … Continue reading Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell To Release New Album “Very Uncertain Times” October 25th on Rise Above Records

PRONG to Release “Age of Defiance” EP November 29th via SPV/Steamhammer

. Like few other contemporary metal bands, Prong are synonymous with a down-to-earth attitude, stamina and a close bond with their fans. “Since the beginning of our career, we’ve done almost everything ourselves,” guitarist, vocalist and band founder Tommy Victor looks back at the group’s intense and extremely strenuous early phase in the 1980s. “Not only did we write songs and record albums, we also managed the band, looked after the merchandise, sent demos to clubs and booked vans. Then there were a few years with record companies and agencies involved to support us. Today we’re back to the beginning, we’ve come full circle.” The latest feat … Continue reading PRONG to Release “Age of Defiance” EP November 29th via SPV/Steamhammer

FABIO FRIZZI Announces the “Beyond Composers Cut Tour” Frizzi 2 Fulci

Fabio Frizzi is returning to North America to perfom the legendary score for “The Beyond.” “The Beyond” is a psychedelic, supernatural nightmare directed by the granddaddy of Italian splatter Lucio Fulci. The second film in Fulci’s “Gates of Hell” trilogy sandwiched between City of the Living Dead (1980) and The House by the Cemetery (1981), “The Beyond’s” loose narrative revolves around a Louisiana hotel which may in fact be one of the seven gates to hell. The movie is beloved by horror fans for its surrealistic imagery and gore-tastic set pieces, including gouged out eyes, face-eating spiders, reanimated corpses, and a bloodthirsty dog. Additionally, a composer’s cut … Continue reading FABIO FRIZZI Announces the “Beyond Composers Cut Tour” Frizzi 2 Fulci
