NOTHING MORE Reveal Official Video For New Single “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE MEANS”

unnamed-1
NOTHING MORE have shared a fourth new track, "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE MEANS," from their upcoming album SPIRITS - out October 14. The song examines what happens when one tries to make a one-sided relationship work with all-too-real lyrics— "I can't sleep, I can't eat, there's no rest, there's no peace -- You don't know what love means, and it's killing me."

"We're glad this song is finally getting out there so we can dig into the emotional and intimate side of the album. The lyrics and tone of this one feels like it hits in a similar way that 'Go To War' and 'Jenny' did. It's going to feel huge playing this next one on tour." - Jonny Hawkins

NOTHING MORE's 'SPIRITS' is an 11 track introspective with philosophical lyrics and thought-provoking emotionalism. The album documents the tumultuous time the world experienced over the past two years capturing the desperation and isolation of lockdown, the spiral of substance abuse, the pain of broken relationships, and survival in self-reliance while summarizing the overall story and mission of NOTHING MORE: Reflect, Provoke, Inspire.

NOTHING MORE has further embellished the SPIRITS concept with their self-designed meta-personality test, "SPIRITS TEST," and their first-ever graphic novel "SPIRITS VOL.1" (Z2 Comics), which introduces the "SPIRIT TYPES," which stem from the results of taking the "SPIRITS TEST" as the four main characters in the graphic novel.

NOTHING MORE will bring their live performance—including their crowd favorite "Scorpion Tail" (a 400-pound, 14-foot MIDI controller constructed out of salvaged metal scraps by bassist Daniel Oliver that allows Hawkins to control the music while delivering his theatrical stage presence)—to audiences across the U.S. including Louder Than Life, Rocklahoma, Aftershock and Blue Ridge Rock Festival. Catch "In This Moment" & "Nothing More" 9/20 Columbus, OH @ Kemba Live

MEGADETH UNLEASH THEIR OFFICIAL SINGLE “SOLDIER ON!”

Megadeth_6_-82_PhotoBy_Travis_Shinn-copy
MEGADETH "Soldier On!"..... is the new single about tenacity and strength in the face of obstacles (inspired by DAVE MUSTAINE's cancer battle) Megadeth's New Studio Album 'The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead!' Will Be Released On September 2nd and they've unleashed the third single. Here's an official visualizer for "Soldier On!"

"Soldier On!" is an example – among many – of the band's ability to blend stylistic elements from both the metal AND rock ends of the musical spectrum. While MEGADETH are rightfully regarded as the world's 'State of the Art Speed Metal Band', from their earliest days some of the band's biggest songs have arisen when they've let off the gas pedal, while still maintaining the aggression.

"Coming to the realization that you need to walk away from a relationship that's very toxic, and how hard it can be to start down that road. But you know you need to, and just taking that first step is the hardest part. Whatever your leaving does to them, you have to block that part out, stay the course and do what's right for you. It will be hard in the beginning, but you have got to live for yourself to be worth a damn to anyone else. You've got to Soldier On!" - Dave Mustaine

MEGADETH will release their 16th studio album, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! featuring twelve new tracks on CD, vinyl, and cassette, as well as digitally through all online partners. There will be a limited deluxe edition 2LP, 12-track album pressed on 180g black vinyl housed in a numbered gatefold jacket with a 12x24 lyrics/credits insert, a lenticular vinyl lithograph and a bonus 7-inch featuring "We'll Be Back" and the unreleased b-side "The Conjuring (Live)." The limited deluxe edition can only be purchased via MEGADETH's official online store, through Sound of Vinyl, and uDiscover, pre-order HERE:  https://megadeth.lnk.to/SickDyingDeadPR

Ozzy and Tony reunited and it feels so damn good! Look at these smiles! Sabbath Legends Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi played a surprise performance in their hometown of Birmingham, England on Monday (August 8th) to close out the 2022 Commonwealth Games. This is Ozzy's first performance on stage since his "life-altering" surgery on June 13th, which involved removing and realigning pins in his neck and back.

The two metal legends performed the classic Black Sabbath songs, "Paranoid" and "Iron Man" followed by a huge fireworks display! They were joined by drummer Tommy Clufetos, who performed with Black Sabbath on their farewell tour, as well as bassist and keyboardist Adam Wakeman. Solid Gold Hits shared the Video (below)

Osbourne's upcoming 13th studio album "Patient Number 9" will be released on September 9th and Iommi is featured on the songs "Degradation Rules" and "No Escape From Now". 

A 25-foot inflatable of Ozzy, that was designed by comic book creator Todd McFarlane, will be touring across the U.S. leading up to the release of his upcoming solo album, Patient Number 9.
You can follow the inflatable's tour via Ozzy.com. You can also enter to win the inflatable in all of its 25-foot glory by presaving or preadding Patient Number 9 on Spotify or Apple Music. (check out a pic below)

Trailer & New Theme Song/Video "21 Bullets" for 'The Retaliators' movie f/ Mötley Crüe, Asking Alexandra, Ice Nice Kills, and From Ashes To New

unnamed

Better Noise released the Theme Song to the upcoming horror movie 'The Retaliators'. "21 Bullets" is performed by Motley Crue, with guest vocals from Danny from Asking Alexandria, Spencer from Ice Nine Kills, and Danny from From Ashes To New. 

Better Noise produced the movie (as they did "The Dirt" a few years ago), and aside from the "regular" actors, a number of their artists have various parts in the movie. Jacoby from Papa Roach is a prime "nemesis", Ivan from Five Finger Death Punch is the head of a biker gang whose brother is "the bad guy", members of 5FDP are in the "biker gang", and (of course he does) Tommy Lee plays a strip club DJ. THE RETALIATORS is based on the real-life story of an upstanding pastor who uncovers a dark and twisted underworld as he searches for answers surrounding his daughter's brutal murder and stars Michael Lombardi (FX's 'Rescue Me,' 'The Deuce') and Marc Menchaca ('Ozark,' 'Black Mirror') The movie goes into wide theater release on Friday 9/16 including in various theaters around Columbus.

"Writing a new theme song for a horror flick was inspiring," says Sixx. "This was my first time writing for a horror-thriller film, and it took me in a different direction from the first theme song I wrote – 'The Dirt (1981)' by Mötley Crüe. I worked with some great new artists to create a new sound that will stretch Mötley Crüe's audience to new fans. I had a great time writing it, and I think our fans will love it too!"

The digital version of THE RETALIATORS ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK will include the track "Cops Are Here" from the movie's official score, which was arranged by Stranger Things composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. The soundtrack audio will also include snippets from the film interspersed throughout the track listing, driving the film's main message, "If you could have one minute alone with the person who killed your loved one, would you take it?"
