THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM AND 2018 EUROPEAN TOUR

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have returned with news of a brand new studio album to be released in early 2018, supported by a European headlining tour.

The band’s eagerly-anticipated new album, ‘A Deeper Cut’, is due to be released on February 16th, 2018 and features 12 brand new songs which draw on the band’s recent experiences and showcase their ever-improving songwriting abilities.

“This is my favourite record we’ve made so far and I’m more excited about getting this out there than I have been about any of the previous albums,” states guitarist Paul Sayer.  “I feel like we’ve really captured what the band is about on this one; I can’t wait for people to hear it and I can’t wait to get out on the road and play it live to everyone.”

Guitarist Matt White, who makes his recording debut with THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT on ‘A Deeper Cut’, adds: “There isn’t an ounce of fat on this album.  Everything that is on there happened because it was absolutely necessary and vital that it was put down.  It’s both a nod to the past and a wink to the future.  It was a pleasure to be involved in writing and recording with The Temperance Movement for the first time.  I feel that together, with [producer] Sam Miller, we have surpassed any expectations that were placed upon us and that we have produced the finest body of work from the band to date.”

‘A Deeper Cut’ will be available to pre-order starting this Friday, November 3rd on limited edition signed digipak CD, regular digipak CD, regular vinyl, and limited edition signed coloured vinyl.  Head to the Earache Webstore <http://www.earache.com/ttm> from Friday to reserve your copy.

THE DUNWELLS – new single ‘Colour My Mind’

The Dunwells have announced the release of a new EP. Released on December 1st 2017, ‘Colour My Mind’ is a brand new collection of songs, showcasing a new sound for the band.

From concept to record, this EP has been 24 months in the making. Brothers Joe (vocals,
guitar) and David Dunwell (vocal, piano, guitar) decided that they wanted to capture the
sound and personality of the band’s live show in the studio.

With the video released today, lead single and title track ‘Colour My Mind’ has elements of gospel music. Not necessarily religious, but a brightness found in gospel harmony. Where previous releases may have veered toward the melancholy, this is a song designed to make you feel pure joy.

Hailing from Leeds, The Dunwells formed in 2009, drawn together by a mutual love of bands such as Bon Iver, Elbow, and Damien Rice. With their previous single ‘Communicate’ hitting over two million streams on Spotify, two albums and two EPs under their belts, the band are set to enjoy huge success with their upcoming release.

BIGFOOT ‘Karma’ video for new single included on self-titled debut album out 13.10.17 on Frontiers

Bigfoot are releasing another single from their upcoming self-titled debut album, which is released via Frontiers Music srl on 13th October. ‘Karma’ follows ‘The Fear’, ’Tell Me A Lie’ and ‘Forever Alone’ as the fourth song to be lifted from the record. The band begin a UK tour with a special album launch event in Manchester on 14th October. The full itinerary is as follows :

14.10.17 MANCHESTER Sound Control (album launch event)
19.10.17 WITNEY Fat Lils
26.10.17 LONDON Underworld
28.10.17 GRIMSBY Yardbirds
02.11.17 STOKE Eleven
03.11.17 CARDIFF Fuel
04.11.17 CANNOCK The Station
05.11.17 SOUTH SHIELDS Queen Vic
09.11.17 GLASGOW Hard Rock Cafe
11.11.17 SHEFFIELD Corporation (with Tyketto)
24.11.17 TROON Winterstorm Festival
25.11.17 EDINBURGH La Belle Angele (with Tyketto)

Bigfoot is a hard rock band from Wigan who burst onto the scene in the spring of 2014. With a wide range of influences from The Eagles through to Pantera, the group boasts the powerful vocals of Antony Ellis, dual lead guitars from Sam Millar and Mick McCullagh, plus the thunderous rhythm section of bassist Matt Avery and drummer Tom Aspinall.

Having toured constantly around the UK and performed at festivals including Breakout, Bloodstock, Hard Rock Hell, Steelhouse and more, the quintet have built themselves a loyal grassroots following in their home territory. Two successful self-released EP’s also drew the attention of the Naples based rock powerhouse Frontiers Music Srl, who signed them to their roster as fast as they could.

‘The Fear’ was written shortly after the release of the second EP. Sam Millar describes it as “a song about the fear in our heads and how it can consume your whole life and take over”, while musically Mick McCullagh states that “it is a Jekyll and Hyde type affair. There’s the gnarly, in your face heavy rock guitar side of it, then the melodic, anthemic side with big uplifting vocals. It’s very dynamic, which adds to the tension we were aiming for.”

The video for ‘The Fear’ was shot by Shane Green at The Giffard in Wolverhampton. Tom Aspinall says “we had played there a month or so before and thought the stage would be perfect for the shots we wanted with the idea of it being quite dark and frantic. We’ve worked with Shane in the past and knew he would deliver a fast paced and exciting video.”

The self-titled debut album by Bigfoot is out on 13th October via Frontiers. Co-produced by the band with Justin Richards (who also mixed the record), it consists of eleven songs. The artwork and tracklisting are as follows :

1 Karma
2 The Fear
3 Tell Me A Lie
4 Forever Alone
5 Eat Your Words
6 Prisoner Of War
7 Freak Show
8 I Dare You
9 The Devil In Me
10 Uninvited
11 Yours

This Bigfoot is no myth, but they are about to become legends.

HOUSTON New Album ‘III’ Coming In November

Swedish AOR band, HOUSTON, have released a brand new lyric video & single for the song ‘Dangerous Love’, the track is taken from their forthcoming album titled ‘III’, due out on November 24th via Livewire/Cargo Records UK. The video can be viewed here:

Houston has been around since their self-titled debut album in 2010 and landed the number one in Classic Rock Magazine’s AOR chart that year, up against outfits such as Unruly Child, Crashdiet, H.e.a.t and Nelson. The band then went on to play the festival circuit with appearances at Sweden Rock, Download Festival UK, Rock of Ages Germany as well as touring the UK with Swedish sleaze rockers CrashDiet.

Houston’s second album “Relaunch” featured a cover song called ‘Runaway’ that became the soundtrack to Red Bull’s own Danny MacAskill’s Extreme BMX video ‘Imaginate’ which has over 74 million views on YouTube and 600,000 plays on Spotify and counting.

Together with renowned producer and ex MTV rocker Martin Karlegård (Reptile Smile) the band created ‘III’. Martin Karlegård has worked with French Idol singer Jenifer, Swedish pop star Brolle Jr and world famous Swedish band ‘The Sounds’ and has helped the band to add a mature and organic sound to their brand of classy and classic Melodic Rock.

As singer Hank Erix explains, “It’s been a very creative time with Martin, it’s great to find a producer that brings out the best in you for every single take. Personally I’ve never delivered such a vocal performance as on this album. I really found my sound and I have matured musically since our last album and especially since our debut in 2010. This is a new beginning for Houston.”

Hank Erix – Lead vocals
Soufian Ma’Aoui – Bass
Calle Hammar – Guitars/Backing vocals

EVANESCENCE RETURN WITH FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM  ON NOVEMBER 10TH

EVANESCENCE are returning with SYNTHESIS, their fourth and most ambitious album to date, set for a November 10th release. The album features a reworking of some of EVANESCENCE’s best-loved songs recorded with a full orchestra and electronica combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice.

EVANESCENCE – lead singer-songwriter and pianist Amy Lee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist Jen Majura – worked with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell on SYNTHESIS which will also feature two new EVANESCENCE songs, the first of which, entitled “Imperfection” will be released today.  The album includes guest performance by famed violinist Lindsey Stirling on “Hi-Lo” the other new song on the album.

AMY LEE describes the meaning behind “Imperfection,” “For me, this is the most important song on the album. I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn’t sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable. I had no choice. It’s for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression. I’m singing from the perspective of the person left behind, the person in the waiting room. It’s a plea to fight for your life, to stay. Don’t give into the fear- I have to tell myself that every day. Nobody is perfect.  We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences. Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.”

“This album is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” explains AMY LEE. “I’ve always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation. This will be our first time touring with orchestra and I’m so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we’ve built over the years. I’m also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack.”

Both Standard CD & Digital versions of the album are available now for pre-order, as well as a Deluxe version which include the CD plus a DVD featuring a documentary on making the album as well as instrumental and 5.1 surround mixes of the songs.

In what promises to be the biggest year for EVANESCENCE yet, the group also confirmed that their “Synthesis Live” tour will continue in UK & Europe, starting with two nights at the Royal Festival Hall in March 2018. The band will be bringing a live orchestra and electronic programming out on the road with them, which will truly deliver a transcendent experience.

Orbital announce new music

On September 21, a reunited Orbital (Brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll) will perform new music and classic cuts in the US for the first time in five years, at the inaugural Electronic Music Awards, live from downtown Los Angeles on Twitter. The performance follows a successful UK run of impressive performances at the WAM Festival in Spain, Forbidden Fruit in Dublin, Supersonic in Japan, the Brussels Summer Festival, and the Bluedot plus Standing Calling festivals in the UK.  Additionally, the duo announced December 2017 dates at both London Hammersmith Apollo and Manchester Apollo which sold out in less than 24 hours upon announcement.

According to Orbital “We’re so excited to be coming back to the USA . We love it there and have missed it over the past five years . It was an Essential part of our Orbital lives in the past and we can’t wait to make it our present again. The EMAs are long over due and we’re proud to be part of this inaugural event”.

The duo’s new single, Copenhagen, which has been playlisted by BBC 6 Music, is streaming now. Orbital’s performance at the EMAs, personally requested by Executive Producer Paul Oakenfold himself, will be the duo’s first live show in the US in five years with a new album on the horizon.

Orbital has been hailed as creators of classic electronic symphonies and timeless dancefloor bangers, as originators of must-see live dance music experiences over their 25-year career. The new live show has been described by both The Guardian and Q Magazine as “Among the greatest gigs of all time’.

Paul, says, of what to expect: “We have “warped and changed” the classic Orbital sound so that faithful fans will get something familiar but new, freshened up for a new phase.” Phil wants to “get the bounce back, make it really beefy.” Paul adds: “We are hitting our stride again and looking forward to really getting down to writing and recording once the festival season is over. Festivals first, writing after; it’s a win win situation!”
