NOTHING MORE Unveil New Song and Video for “TIRED OF WINNING,” from Upcoming Album

CHAIR-SELECTS-9-fina_20220429-235708_1

NOTHING MORE released their new single "TIRED OF WINNING" as a preview of their forthcoming album and follow-up to the band's 2017 album The Stories We Tell Ourselves.

JONNY HAWKINS on "TIRED OF WINNING"

Q: "TIRED OF WINNING" is a compelling song with lyrics that underline the very precarious position that humankind is in right now: "So will we steer this ship straight through the void/ Or turn on ourselves and die out?" What inspired the song and how it mocks the phrase "winning"?

A: We find ourselves in the same position humanity has found itself over and over again… at the end of a series of self made problems. When we wake up to this, we realize that we are our own worst enemy, yet we focus so much of our energy on externalizing our problems. This song is a bird's eye view of human nature.

●Q: Vocally, the performance is stadium-size and intimate all at once, putting across the urgency of the song's lyrics. What was going through your mind as you sang with this level of intensity? How will you translate this message into your live performance?

A: This may sound a bit lofty, but when I sing this song I feel as if the entire universe is coursing through my veins. I get goosebumps because I feel in line with something I can't quite describe… like an old familiar spirit shows up.

●Q: The song ends with the lines: "Are we going to live this life?" How do you feel we as a people got it all wrong--and where do you think we might all be headed?

A: I think we all tend to lose the meaning in life by hyper focusing on it and romanticizing it. It's a paradox… It's like trying to grasp water in your hand; the tighter you hold, the less you have. The more weight you put on the "meaning" of your life, the less you feel connected to it. The purpose of life might be as simple as life itself… nothing more, nothing less.

●Q: Musically, the song is very intense with unique sounds + a jarring rhythm that underline the chaos of this moment we are living in. Can you talk about the recording of the song and how you wanted it to sonically capture the song's theme?

A: We wanted it to sound like aliens had a baby with a 90's rock band. That baby grew up, dropped out of college and made our music video.

Pop Evil has premiered a new song called "Eye of the Storm."

cvbdzifgnmklxmfg5_n
"It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, at some point we all face a situation beyond our control. The wind howls at your door as darkness fills the sky and everything you know is being tested. You don't know if you can survive it. At times, it feels hopeless, but it's not. There is a path through the chaos and a way out of the confusion. You are stronger and closer than you think you are. The storm will pass. Don't let it bury you."
– POP EVIL

Check out "Eye of the Storm" now via digital outlets, and watch their Official video here. "Eye Of The Storm" is the 1st single off of a brand new album that will come out later this year and follows Pop Evil's 2021 album Versatile, that features "Breathe Again," "Work" and "Survivor."

Anthrax and Black Label Society Join Forces for 40TH Anniversary Summer Tour + special guest Hatebreed.

ablshbtp

ANTHRAX AND BLACK LABEL SOCIETY TO HIT THE ROAD THIS SUMMER ON CO-HEADLINE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR and Hatebreed Will Join The Lineup As Special Guest 

This summer, Anthrax and Black Label Society will bring some of the finest thrash and heavy metal to 24 North American cities. Both bands will play headline sets. Hatebreed, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Perseverance album, will Special Guest. Black Label Society and Anthrax have shared festival stages and one-off shows numerous times, but this marks the very first time these two bands will tour together. Ticket pre-sale details are below.* The public ticket on-sale starts this Friday at 10:00 AM local time. Log onto https://www.anthrax.com/tour or http://blacklabelsociety.com for all ticket purchasing information.

"Zakk has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988. We've had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it's always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 - the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we've got fucking Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it's going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can't wait to see you all on the road." -Anthrax's Scott Ian

The multi Gold and Platinum, six-time GRAMMY-nominated Anthrax spent a good portion of 2021 celebrating the band's landmark 40th birthday. The card-carrying Big Four members' anniversary was the subject of an 11-week series of video testimonials from artists like Chuck D., Dave Grohl, Dave Mustaine, Kerry King, Norman Reedus, Rob Zombie, Robert Trujillo, Slash, and others. Anthrax teamed up with Z-2 Comics for the "Among The Living" graphic novel that was inspired by their landmark 1987 album and released their high-end bourbon whiskey, "Anthrax XL." But, due to COVID, the one thing Anthrax couldn't do, was tour, tour, tour, so the band fully intends to extend the celebration with this North American trek. Fans can expect Anthrax - Joey Belladonna/vocals, Scott Ian/rhythm guitar, Frank Bello/bass, Charlie Benante/drums, and Jon Donais/guitar - to draw from all four decades – fan favorites and deep cuts – for their nightly setlist.

"ANTHRAX is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME - I have been buds with SCOTTY, CHARLIE, FRANKIE & JOEY for over 3O years & they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. JON is The BESTEST new addition ANTHRAX could ask for - HATEBREED are The BESTEST HARDCORE/EXTREME METAL band & BESTEST friends w/ANTHRAX & BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & HATEBREED TOUR is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!" -Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde

Everything about Black Label Society begins with the riff from their debut studio album, Sonic Brew (1999), to their critically-acclaimed eleventh studio album, Doom Crew Inc. (2021). A dedicated disciple of Zeppelin, Sabbath, and Deep Purple, frontman Zakk Wylde looks to the massive guitar hooks in classics as guiding lights. Their latest album,Doom Crew Inc., finds larger-than-life guitarist Zakk trading solos and twin-guitar parts with guitarist Dario Lorina, backed by the rumble of longtime bassist John "J.D." DeServio and powerhouse drummer Jeff Fabb. The GRAMMY-winning frontman has been featured on the cover of Guitar World more than a dozen times in recognition of his work on multi-platinum albums with the iconic Ozzy Osbourne and two decades with Black Label Society, and their chart- topping albums and singles. The stomping, heavy bluesy, recklessly unhinged hard-rock-metal quartet are part invading horde and part traveling carnival, summoning caffeine-fueled cacophony on records and the stage.

Hatebreed remain one of the most relevant and impactful acts in the hard rock and metal scenes. The Connecticut band is celebrating over 25 years of ruthless breakdowns, pit-stirring anthems, and poignant lyrics across eight albums and consistently sold-out shows. The band, which has gone from playing basements and backyards to being a featured worldwide attraction on countless festivals and high-profile tours from OzzFest to Warped Tour to Download, recently released Weight of the False Self, via Nuclear Blast. Weight of the False Self and Hatebreed were described by Forbes as "more relevant than ever in the metal and hardcore communities." It was also praised as a "return to their hardcore roots" by Brooklyn Vegan. The album was deemed "one of their most aggressive to date" by Consequence and "pummeling" by Revolver, while Psychology Today called it "a blazing combination of extreme metal and hardcore punk." Hatebreed, nearing a quarter of a billion catalog streams, continue to be one of the most vital bands in the hard rock scene.

"Listen up! It's gonna be a hot summer! Anthrax, BLS & Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face & ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit." - Jamey Jasta

Architects’ Sam Carter Releases New Children’s Book inspired by his own rescue dog experience. LOVE THIS!!

FQQloDUakAApenk

'Sophia Fox Dog Gets Adopted' is the new a new Children's book co-authored by Architects vocalist, Sam Carter, and his fiancé Abby Kirk. The book will be released at 9am on April 15th via SophiaFoxDog.com The tale is featured by the couple's experience with their own rescue dog.

"I'm so extremely excited to announce that myself and my fiancé have written a children's book starring none other than "Sophia Fox Dog" this is something I've always wanted to do and I'm so stoked that we're doing it!

"Sophia Fox Dog Gets Adopted" was written by Sam Carter and Abby Kirk when Abby was working in a school with many children who had been in foster care or through the adoption process. They realized that their stories were largely not represented in children's books and wanted to write a book for the class to show that their stories were important too.

The story also aims to teach children to think about what rescue dogs may have gone through in the past before finding their adoptive families. This is a cause close to our hearts and large portion of the proceeds will go to https://www.wunderdogrescue.com/ and https://twitter.com/RRAdogs to help more dogs like Sophia find their forever families.

You can also get your hands on a Sophia Plushie and a signed card from Myself & Abby and a Pawprint from the star herself Sophia🐾

This has been in the works for a long time and I'm so happy to finally be able to share it with you! Thank you Abby believing in us and this book and thank you Victoria for doing such an incredible job on the illustration ❤️"

Sophia Fox Dog Gets Adopted is out
Friday 9am GMT from https://sophiafoxdog.com/password ❤️🦊
