unnamed-1

Nita Strauss (AKA; Hurricane Nita, The Hurricane) Is way more than a pretty face, she's a Bad Ass Guitar Speed Queen and a damn good songwriter! Nita Oozes musical talent and David Draiman is singing on her new one "Dead Inside". It's so good David wished it was a Disturbed song! (true story) 

Anyhoo, Nita is Alice Cooper's touring guitarist and you may have seen her in "The Iron Maiden's" and "Femme Fatale" in addition to her solo career. Nita is the first female Signature Artist for Ibanez Guitars too! 

"Dead Inside" is the debut single off Nita Strauss' new record (due Spring/2022) Look for the "Winter Wasteland Tour" (11/10 - 12/18)

David Draiman says about "Dead Inside" - "We live in an age of over-stimulation. We're barraged on a daily basis by sound bites of every kind. Driven into a media driven frenzy, we've become hopeless outrage addicts, dead to the true travesties and injustices of the world that are right in front of our eyes. Nothing shocks us anymore. After all, how can you be shocked, when you can no longer trust?" 

"Serendipity can be really cool. We've been friends for years. Nita sent me the track…I didn't have time to work on it right away…then in literally a couple of days, while killing time in Santa Monica, the whole thing just came together. Incredibly proud of how it turned out and honored to be a part of it." - David Draiman

"This is my first time releasing my own music with a vocalist, and I am so honored to take this step alongside a legend like David Draiman. David's voice and powerful lyrics took this song to a level I could never have imagined! And we are so excited to unleash this song on the world" - Nita Strauss

Bring Me The Horizon is returning with a brand new song called "DiE4u"

tldkfzn

 ...and also sharing the INTENSE official music video. The song was recorded remotely during the pandemic, and is part of the second phase of the "POST HUMAN" EP campaign. 

The band's Oli Sykes explained the song is "about toxic obsessions, vices and things you can't kick. I think a lot of people went through very similar struggles while in lockdown, coming face to face with yourself and seeing who you really are and what's important. The song is a triumphant and emotional one for me because it was a time of realization to kick the things that were no good, and to take the choice in bettering myself. It also connects to a deeper theme about us as a society, and how we need to look at the way we treat ourselves, each other as well as the world." 

Bring Me The Horizon will be heading out on their sold out U.K. arena tour later this month.

UPDATE: Halestorm - Back From The Dead (Official Video) throat punch \m/\m/

sduhfalukhfiajvasrvo
"Back From The Dead" IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE! Halestorm spent the last few months recording its new album for a tentative late 2021 release.

"Up from the dirt I rise. It'd be so much easier to just sink into the hole that I have dug for myself, the grave that this world, broken trust, guilt, toxic relationships, pressure, anxiety and depression have helped me create. But that's not who I am. Is it harder to pick myself up and out of the blackness that sometimes plagues my mind? Yes. But no one ever said being your best self is easy.

Self love is a full time job. And as always, music comes to the rescue. My words and messages in my songs that I've been so lucky to have unleashed for others empowerment… is also my empowerment. It is my life light, providing my nutrients from a muse on high, a fickle but gracious muse that enables me to balance my emotions, and manifest my destiny.

It reminds me how to love, and who looks back at me in this house of mirrors. A reflection sometimes bent, but never broken. Through music we heal, and rock forward, knowing that we are not alone on this journey. With horns raised, we march through the quicksand, and together we make it to the other side, hell cannot hold us down"
- I hear you, I see you, and I love you, Lzzy

Halestorm touring plans include:
9/12 Mansfield, OH – Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival at The Ohio State Reformatory

12/12 Cincinnati, OH – Heritage Bank Center (w/ Evanescence & Lilith Czar)

New Papa Roach! Check Out the Video for “Swerve”

unnamed
"Check out our brand new song SWERVE (ft. Jason Aalon Butler from Fever333 & Sueco) from our forthcoming new album!" - Papa Roach

"This track came at the very end of the writing process for our upcoming album and truly feels like the culmination of years of experimenting with our sound coming back to a new version of Papa Roach. We're kicking off this new chapter of our careers with a next-level track and couldn't imagine doing it with anyone other than Jason and Sueco." - Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix

"This is one of the favorite songs I've ever made. Papa Roach has been an inspiration of mine since I was a kid, so working with them was super dope and a dream come true!" - Sueco

"I've said it before and I'll say it again- this band has somehow managed to be a legacy AND relevant all at once. So, naturally, when I got the call to hop on this track there was no question. With Sueco doing his thing the track's got 3 different vibes that all work together. This shit is different and that's exactly what rock needs. More DIFFERENT Shit. Thanks to these modern legends for making sure it happened." - Jason Aalon Butler

The genre-bending banger was produced by Colin "Doc" Brittain and Nick Furlong (All Time Low, A Day To Remember, Avicii), and features the saxophone stylings of co-collaborator Spencer Nezey, a singletrack showcasing Papa Roach's bravado at an all-time high.

Along with today's song release, Papa Roach have also announced that they have entered into a new global distribution and marketing services agreement with ADA Worldwide (WMG's independent label and artist services arm). In addition, Papa Roach have also reactivated their own label, "New Noize Records," a second incarnation of their early 2000's label enterprise.
