AUTOPILOT Release Official Music Video for “Modern Age”

November 13, 2019 in Tattoo


AP-Modern-Age-3000

Canadian Alternative Rock Band AUTOPILOT has released the official music video for “Modern Age,” the opening track off of their recently released LP, Afterglow.

“’Modern Age’ was directed by New York City based director, Kevin Van Witt. Filmed on the Lower East Side and Long Island’s Gold Coast, it captures the chaos of this new technological world we have built and the freedom that we once had in childhood. Starring young actor, Dylan, the ‘Modern Age’ video takes us through a psychedelic adventure of realities that we have created in the Modern Age.” – MARLON HARDER

“The opening track “Modern Age” instantly transports you to a different time where music was simpler along with life itself…you could instantly hear that this ten track album will be full of musicianship and passion that some other bands in this genre tend to avoid and ignore. Singer Marlon Harder’s voice wastes no time and brings a sense of comfort.” Girl at the Rock Shows

“Autopilot’s highly anticipated new record Afterglow, their most impressive and accessible record to date, produced by legendary Saskatchewan producer, S.J. Kardash, and backed by their most ambitious marketing campaign yet, finds the band reaching for bigger sounds, bigger ideas, and much bigger audiences.” – Top40-Charts

Over the last few years, Canadian alternative rock band Autopilot has become a staple in the Saskatoon indie music scene. Known for their thoughtful lyrics, powerful hooks, dynamic stage show, and obsessive hard work, they somehow seem to effortlessly walk the line between passionate art and massive appeal. Over the course of 3 full-length records, and one EP, they’ve become road warriors, touring relentlessly across Canada and the US. They’ve been praised for their tireless work ethic by publications like Canadian Musician Magazine, who called them “quite possibly one of the hardest working bands in the country.”

Autopilot’s highly anticipated new record Afterglow, their most impressive and accessible record to date, produced by legendary Saskatchewan producer, S.J. Kardash, and backed by their most ambitious marketing campaign yet, finds the band reaching for bigger sounds, bigger ideas, and much bigger audiences. The release of their new single “Undisguised” following the success of preceding singles “Living Dead” and “Weightless”, is proof positive of this growing momentum.

Marlon Harder, the driving creative force behind Autopilot, has a knack for finding beauty in simple moments, and hope in the challenges life tends to bring. Inspired by the early writing of Modest Mouse, he seemed to know very quickly what he wanted to do in life. After the release and College radio buzz of their first record Now It’s Time You Know What We’re Losing For, unexpected illness struck, effectively putting the band on the back burner for the foreseeable future. But he never quit writing. Health improved, lineups changed, and in 2013 they teamed up with S.J. Kardash for the release of Diamond Rough, a sophomore full-length forged in the fires of struggle, faith, and growing maturity. The record widely expanded their media exposure across North America; in print, online, commercial rock radio, CBC, podcasts, and through licensing placement on major US television networks.

Their 2015 release, Desert Dreams, reunited the band with Kardash, and represented a significant leap forward in both the ever expanding sound, and rapidly growing fan base the band had built strongly upon with 2013’s Diamond Rough. Along with debuting on Earshot’s Top 50 chart, Desert Dreams received heavy rotation on The VergeSirius XM’s Iceberg Radio, and garnered the attention of New York’s prestigious CMJ; while securing the band showcases at Toronto’s CMW and Indie Week festivals, AYE Fest in Cincinnati, Fairfield Revival Festival in Minnesota, and opening doors to tour extensively in the United States.

Autopilot has always been a dedicated touring band. In support of Diamond RoughDesert Dreams, and the 2017 release of the single “Hurricane” / “Crooked Lines”, the band spent countless months on the road touring across Canada and the United States. These tours have included stops at Jersey Shore FestivalMillennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and a mainstage performance at Mesa Music Festival in Arizona supporting hard rock legends P.O.D. October 2018 marked the release of Afterglow, which chartered in the top 200 on the NACC North American College Charts as well as specialty radio in the US.

The future is truly wide open for Autopilot. Everything they’ve learned is on the table for 2019 while they continue to promote the release of Afterglow. They are casting their net wider, and going all in. Never content to sit still or play it safe, they’ve crafted a remarkable live show, and plan on spending as much time over the next year as possible, getting the new songs in front of as many new fans as they possibly can.

Rosemary Ann O’Malley Holt (Age 91) of Reston, Virginia, passed away in Fairfax County on Saturday, October 5, 2019. She was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, to the late John Joseph O’Malley and Mary Alice O’ Malley on October 8, 1927, and was only three days from her 92nd birthday at the time she entered Heaven’s gates.

Rosemary was a loving, kind, caring, devoted, and dedicated mother, first and foremost. She treasured her children, exuded love, happiness, warmth and compassion.

Rosemary embraced every moment with those she loved dearly. She was extremely intelligent, witty, loving, kind, articulate, and was blessed with a bubbly personality that always made people around her smile. Rosemary made friends everywhere she went and was beloved for her kindness and compassion. She was a living example of the Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”

Her compassion for others was not only felt amongst her family and those close to Rosemary, but by so many people loved and supported by her work as The North East President Chapter with the National Alliance for Mental Health (NAMI). Her important work while working in Pennsylvania, Washington, DC, Virginia for NAMI, helped the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization continue to build better lives for the many millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

Rosemary is predeceased by her late husband Howard A. Holt, Jr. and, survived by her daughter Michaele Ann Schon and her husband, Neal Joseph Schon, her son, Glen W. Holt, son, Howard A. Holt, III and her daughter Mary D. Holt. Together with them and her grandchildren and her nephews and nieces,

The family wishes to thank all of those who cared for Rosemary and made her life as happy, comfortable and meaningful with dignity, during her fruitful journey with us.

Rosemary’s life will be celebrated in a Mass to be held at the Cathedral of St. Peter, 315 Wyoming Avenue, Scranton, PA 18503, on Friday, November 8, 2019, at 9:30 a.m. Inurnment will be private at the Cathedral Cemetery in the O’Malley Family Plot.

Flowers, donations are respectfully directed to The Cathedral of Saint Peter, and or NAMI, National Alliance for Mental Health.

Rosemary’s Spirit lives on in all of Us.

BOREAL HYMN Releases Demo EP, ‘TUNDRA’

November 12, 2019 in Tattoo


tundrapromo portraitSMALL

Dark Tribal Folk Metal duo BOREAL HYMN has released their debut, 4 track demo entitled “Tundra.”

Player

TUNDRA is the culmination of a lot of experimentation and trial and error. We knew what we wanted BOREAL HYMN to feel like, but the tough part was writing a piece of music that embodied that feeling. After chipping away at the demo for several months, I feel like we’ve landed on something that expresses exactly what we wanted to express. We want a sound that is both ancient and relevant. It isn’t about role playing or pretending to live in the iron age; it’s about unearthing traditions, feelings, and philosophies that we feel are undervalued in modern life.” – Colby Hink

TUNDRA COVER LG 1

Track List:
1. Labrynthian Graves
2. Glimmer In The Umbra
3. Banner Of Grief

8141L5J50pL. SS500

Soulful Blues / Rock / Pop Singer / Songwriter JENNY TEATOR has released the official music video for her latest single, “Daughter of the Devil.” Originally premiered on VENTS MAGAZINE, “Daughter of the Devil” was directed by Jim Foster.

“Daughter of the Devil” was produced by OH NO! ØKTAPUS at Red 13 Studios

Player

“Daughter of the Devil’ came to be one of those songs where you just feel good jamming out to it and screaming the chorus in your car. I wanted to write a song with a badass vibe,rockin’ guitar parts, and the gang vocal hook to get you singing along. There’s no deep meaning to it, we wanted to create a fictional story of a girl who was raised by the devil (the bad guy) who turned out to be sultry, man teasing, people-pleasing devil blooded woman in disguise. Truth be told though, I really am and will be a daddy’s girl till the day I die.” – Jenny Teator

A Voodoo Doctor “The Doctor” came across a girl who looked lost and scared. He used his magic to turn her into a doll, but his spell was disrupted from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for those who are looking to join our dark metal carnival world in the 13th hour.

Raven Black released their first single, “Died Inside,” on September 7, 2013 at the Roxy, selling out the venue that night. They continued to work in the studio and released their first EP, Midnight Dreary, in June 2014, successfully packing the house at the famous Viper Room.

The band was previously managed by Aaron Rossi (Grammy Nominated Drummer of Ministry/Prong), AJR Enterprises and worked with Grammy-Winning Producer Logan Mader (SoulFly/Machinehead/Five Finger Death Punch).

In October 2014, they revamped their line up and began working with Grammy Nominated Producer Ulrich Wild (Rob Zombie, White Zombie, Alice In Chains, Breaking Benjamin, Pantera, Seether,Dethklok, Otep, and more) on their new album. They then spent the next two years writing and then released their single, “Seven Sins,” in April 2016 and their EP, Seven Sins, in September 2016.

Raven Black played the Corona Hell and Heaven Festival July 2016 in Mexico City, Mexico with headliners like Rammstein, Twisted Sister, Ghost, Five Finger Death Punch, Mushroomhead, Selpultura, Alien Ant Farm, and many others.

To end their summer, they played the 2016 DirtFest Festival in Michigan with headliners Killswitch Engage, Asking Alexandria, Hatebreed, Attila, Born of Osiris, and many others.

Releasing their first Official EP with the new line up, Seven Sins dropped September 29, 2016 on the way out to tour with Mushroomhead, Sunflower Dead, Unsaid Fate, and Death Division for Mushroomhead’s Annual Halloween Tour.

The 2017 year started very busy for Raven Black as they headed to Cleveland, OH to film their new music video with MonoBloc’s Josh Apple and Andrew Sparks for “Twinkle Twinkle Little Scars,” premiered by Revolver Magazine on April 13, 2017. A little horror version of their already theatrical presence in the metal community. “We wanted to have some blood in this one,” says Raven.

After a quick rest, Raven Black toured through the Southern parts of the U.S. on their way to SXSW They played the Heart of Texas Rock Festival in March 2017. Winning fans from across multiple genres at SXSW. Raven says, “I am so proud of being able to share our METAL music with other fans of country, hip hop and pop genres. I was so surprised and happy to see them buying our music. It was fun and the only thing missing was the big mosh pit, LOL, although there was a small handful of metalheads represented this year at SXSW. ”

After returning back home to Los Angeles, the band quickly prepared for their first Headliner Tour, The Hex O’Clock Tour, which kicked off in Guadalajara, Mexico at the Roadhouse Voodoo Bar, July 7, 2017 and returned to the U.S. to begin their month long tour throughout the U.S. from coast to coast.

The Hex O’Clock Tour was a complete success and the band was able to visit so many new cities throughout the country, see their fans, and play so many new venues. Sharing with their fans, new stage props, a few new songs and announcing their new album, 13, in early Spring 2018.

Raven Black just finished their 6-week across the U.S. tour supporting Psychostick, Arsonists Get All the Girls, and Kissing Candice. The tour was amazing and the bands have developed life-long friends. Doesn’t always happen on tours, but it did this time.

To end the 2017 year, Raven Black just announced their pre-order of the Comic Book The Dark Metal Carnival – The Beginning – Issues 1-100. These pre order comic books will be series sequenced from 1-100 and will release in print this Spring 2018. Only these first 100 issues will be numbered for the fans that pre-order. The remaining prints after the first 100 will not be numbered.

They will be also releasing their 2nd EP Album this Spring, 13. In the studio in January and February, Raven Black will be working with Ulrich Wild, Wurm Group, once again to complete their next release this Spring 2018. Of course, this will surely mean a TOUR across the U.S. and performing the new tracks from “13”. There may also be a new music video coming this early Summer.

On tour this Spring with special guest, Hail Sagan and Aboleth May 11, 2018 through June 3, 2018 including an appearance at the Metal In the Mountains Festival in West Virginia on June 2, 2018 with headliner, Mushroomhead.

Following their tour, expect a few fun releases of a new music video and a new announcement of their upcoming Summer Tour after they play the 2018 Michigan Metal Festival on August 11, 2018!

ENDING THEIR 2018 YEAR, RAVEN BLACK HAS BEEN ON TOUR WITH DEVILDRIVER AND JINJER THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES.

IN 2019, RAVEN BLACK SIGNED WITH THE ORACLE MANAGEMENT, OWNED AND OPERATED BY DEVILDRIVER’S VERY OWN DEZ FAFARA AND AHNASTASIA FAFARA.

Santa Cruz is Back – Tattoo.com

November 9, 2019 in Tattoo


Our last interview with the Helsinki, Finland based hard rockin’ glam band Santa Cruz was way back in 2015 in Columbus, Ohio at the Rock on the Range festival. Fast forward to late September 2019, when we finally caught up with band founder and lead vocalist Archie Cruz at Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, KY again, along with a new band member.

Much has changed the past few years. Archie, along with super Metal producer Kane Churko had recently finished the band’s new album “Katharsis” (in which both of them recorded all of the instrumentals) in Las Vegas, NV.  The line-up has changed dramatically. So what else is new? Take a few minutes to watch and listen to this over-the-top, and certainly not scripted, on-camera interview right here on Tattoo.com

Mongolian Musical Marauders THE HU Capture New American Audiences

November 8, 2019 in Tattoo


It’s always interesting for us to see a band for the first time that has been generating a lot of buzz within the music scene.  Management/publicists/labels are all paid to create hype for their clients (the band), so we often take what we hear about a band with a grain of salt until we’ve had the opportunity to see them perform live, to not only judge their on-stage performance but to also gauge their fan reaction.  After seeing THE HU perform at both the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA and Las Rageous Festival in Las Vegas, NV, we were pleasantly surprised to see their talent and live performance exceeded the industry fueled hype and more importantly, fans were genuinely interested, attentive, and engaged.  Music industry power and money can buy opportunities, but it can’t buy the reaction from the fans that THE HU was receiving.

It was after their set at Aftershock when #MischievousMel was able to speak with 4 (of 8) members of the band, with the help of their Tour Manager and translator, on camera for Tattoo.com.  Sit back, listen, and enjoy as Mel talks about playing to American audiences, selling out shows, and how their music crosses cultural lines.

The Criticals Release Tasty ‘Mimosa Hygiene’

November 8, 2019 in Tattoo


Nashiville-based rock outfit The Criticals recently released a new EP, entitled Mimosa Hygiene, a collection of six-tracks of mouthwatering music reflecting hints of the band’s influences – The Stone Roses, Janes Addiction, and The Doors – yet embellished with their own distinctive sound.

Made up of Parker Forbes and Cole Shugart, The Criticals genesis was forged in Nashville’s vibrant DIY scene, where Forbes and Shugart played in a variety of bands prior to hooking up. Since getting together, the duo has released a number of attention-grabbing singles, such as their first single, “Homebody,” followed by “Kate Moss” and “Treat Ya Better.”

The Criticals have performed in Chattanooga, San Diego, and Los Angeles, along with headlining FreezerFest and Spudbash in Nashville, as well as receiving rave reviews from media outlets like Popdust, Earmilk, Brooklyn Vegan, and Come Here Floyd.

The first track on Mimosa Hygiene is “Good Looking,” opening on dark, growling guitars flowing into a raw pummeling rhythm. Rife with garage rock and punk energy, the tune rumbles and surges on gritty textures topped by potently intense vocals.

“What you got / I used to have / I used to be good looking.”

“Treat You Better” roils and trundles on deep colors full of pop-lite savors. A fat vibrating bassline emphasizes the chaffing guitar, as trembling tones fill the melody with actinic accents. I love the glowing background vocal harmonies, imbuing the tune with shiny “oh-oh-ohs.”

“Homebody” travels on bright metallic guitar flavors riding a powerful bassline and snapping drums. Suffused with sparkling pop flavors, the tune echoes with both alt-rock and art-pop textures, making a tasty sonic meal. A drum-filled breakdown leads to beaming layers of pigmentation.

“Just For The Weekend” exudes faint tinges of new wave pop relish, as well as tight alt-rock and alt-pop surfaces, melding into an almost affectionate melody. Frankly, this tune reminds me of The Kinks, if they decided to cover a modern pop song.

“Kate Moss” blends pop-punk-lite elements with a driving dance-derived rhythm. The combination is buoyantly effervescent, and urges listeners to get up and move to the groove. I love the chorus, full of shimmering washes and layers of gleaming energy.

The final track is “Got No Love,” opening on strumming acoustic guitars and a thumping kick-drum topped by luminous vocals.

Mimosa Hygiene is excellent, merging alt-rock, pop, and new wave tangs into alluring songs, crowned by intoxicating vocals and compelling rhythms.
