VOLBEAT NEW VIDEO

VOLBEAT DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “DIE TO LIVE (FEAT. NEIL FALLON)”
 
7th STUDIO ALBUM, REWIND, REPLAY, REBOUND,  OUT NOW VIA REPUBLIC RECORDS
 

Today, multi-platinum Danish rock band Volbeat debut their new music video for “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon)” directed by Adam Rothlein at Ghost Atomic Pictures and taped at Futura Studio in Roslindale, MA. The song and video both feature appearances by Clutch’s lead singer Neil Fallon, as well as Raynier Jacob Jacildo and Doug Corcoran of JD McPherson’s band. Said Neil Fallon about taping the video “A couple of months ago I flew up to Boston to meet up with Volbeat to film the video for their new single, Die to Live.  It was a breeze to make, maybe four hours.  It’s a catchy straight-ahead rocker of a song and I am flattered to have been asked to participate.” Michael Poulsen, lead singer of Volbeat, added: “We were thrilled to be able to get Neil, Raynier and Doug together with us in the same room to shoot this video, and we’re really proud of how it came out. We hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it!” Watch the music video for “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon)” here.
 
The second leg of the band’s Rewind, Rebound, Replay World Tour began this past Wednesday in Warsaw, and fans who attended last night’s show at Berlin’s Mercedes Benz Arena got an early first look at the video. The band will close out 2019 with sold out shows across Europe, and have recently announced new dates in early 2020. Full info and tickets for remaining dates can be found here.
 
The band recently released their seventh studio album Rewind, Replay, Rebound. For the album, Volbeat— Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Rob Caggiano (guitars), Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass), and Jon Larsen (drums) —build upon the distinct, psychobilly, punk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll sound they are known for, while reaching for new creative summits. “The whole point for us going into the studio, is because you still have something to prove — not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself,” says Poulsen. “We would not be able to do this record if it wasn’t for the work we have done in the past. No matter how old the band gets or how many records we do, there is always going to be that signature sound.” Rewind, Replay, Rebound is available on all formats here, including a 2 CD deluxe edition, a special deluxe edition box set, and transparent and blue colored vinyl, numbered and limited to 1,000 copies each.

At this point in their already storied career, Volbeat have opened for Metallica, Motorhead and Slipknot, garnered a 2014 Best Metal Performance Grammy nomination for “Room 24” and won multiple Danish Music Awards. For this album, they mine their own personal histories and that of their genre. The song “When We Were Kids” finds Volbeat ruminating on immortality and innocence we all naively experience in our youth, while “Rewind the Exit” and “Die to Live” both explore how the pursuit of perfection can be a hollow goal.

Rewind, Replay, Rebound was produced by long-time collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Rob Caggiano and Michael Poulsen. This marks the first studio album with Kaspar Boye Larsen on bass. To achieve the album’s sound the band also drew upon a myriad of guests including backing vocalist Mia Maja and the Harlem Gospel Choir, who both return after appearing on 2016’s Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie. Clutch vocalist Neil Fallon is featured on “Die to Live,” a collaboration that is the result of the bands touring together and a love for the singer’s gruff and powerful style. Raynier Jacob Jacildo (piano) and Doug Corocran (saxophone) of JD McPherson’s band also lend their talents to the song.

Ultimately, Volbeat have not lost their passion to create and progress. It’s that which keeps them hungry — and musically honest on the new album.

VOLBEAT emerged from Copenhagen in 2001. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to hard rock’s upper echelon with endless touring and a string of six beloved full-length albums. Recently, their 2010 album Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, which features hit singles “A Warrior’s Call” and “Heaven Nor Hell,” received RIAA Gold Certification. 2013’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies bowed at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release marking the highest U.S. chart entry for a Danish Act since 1997 until the band’s 2016 album Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie topped it by debuting at #4. Most recently the band released Let’s Boogie! Live At Telia Parken, a concert film and album documenting their landmark 2017 Copenhagen show in front of 48,250 fans, the largest show a Danish band has ever performed in Denmark.

‘Their best (album) since 1975’
The Times
“An all-rocking, all windmilling, spikily thought-provoking album”
Mojo September 2019

As opening lines go ‘I don’t care, I know you’re going to hate this song, and that’s fair we never really got along’ from The Who’s new single “All This Music Must Fade” is perhaps the most confrontational and catchy of 2019 so far.  “All This Music Must Fade” is available now at all digital retailers. Pre-order the new album, WHO, now.


The song, which debuted on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast show yesterday, opens the WHO album and Pete Townshend describes it as ‘A song is dedicated to every artist who has ever been accused of ripping off someone else’s song. Seriously? Our musical palette is limited enough in the 21st Century without some dork claiming to have invented a common chord scheme’.


The Who has one of the greatest rock legacies in music history, they’re one of the all-time great live bands, have sold over 100 million records worldwide including 9 US & 10 UK top ten albums and 14 UK top ten singles in a career spanning six decades.
Now Fifty-five years after they made their first recordings, The Who is back with their first new album in thirteen years entitled WHO due for release on December 6, 2019.


The eleven-track album was mostly recorded in London and Los Angeles during Spring and Summer 2019 and was co-produced by Pete Townshend & D. Sardy (who has worked with Noel Gallagher, Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, Gorillaz) with vocal production by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Roger Daltrey, Wilko Johnson).


Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend are joined on the album by long-time Who drummer Zak Starkey, bassist Pino Palladino along with contributions from Simon Townshend, Benmont Tench, drummers Carla Azar and Joey Waronker, bass player Gus Seyffert and Gordon Giltrap.


The album cover has been created by famed pop artist, Sir Peter Blake who first met the band in 1964 at a taping of the legendary TV show Ready Steady Go. Sir Peter designed and contributed a painting to the sleeve of The Who’s album Face Dances in 1981.


The songs on WHO cover a myriad of subjects including the Grenfell Tower fire, musical theft, spirituality, reincarnation, the power of memory and ‘an old rock star that has lost his marbles’. Singer Roger Daltrey rates it amongst their strongest “I think we’ve made our best album since Quadrophenia in 1973, Pete hasn’t lost it, he’s still a fabulous songwriter, and he’s still got that cutting edge”.

After their triumphant return to Wembley Stadium in the Summer, the band will be embarking on a UK tour featuring a full orchestra in Spring 2020, the dates are listed below.

CASIO G‐SHOCK PARTNERS WITH GORILLAZ FOR THEIR SECOND COLLABORATION
 

The Limited-Edition Collection Concludes the Journey of G-SHOCK Creator Mr. Ibe and Gorillaz Band Members.

Casio G-SHOCK announces the release of their second limited edition collection with British band, Gorillaz. Due to popular demand following the sold out 2018 collection, GORILLAZ X G-SHOCK is back with a unique collaboration featuring two limited-edition G-SHOCK styles, DW-5600 and GA-2000 designed by Gorillaz co-creator, Jamie Hewlett.

Inspired from two acclaimed albums from the Grammy and BRIT Award winning British band – ‘Gorillaz’ and ‘The Now Now,’ the collection concludes the adventures of G- SHOCK creator Mr. Ibe and Gorillaz band members – Noodle, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs and 2D. They return to Mr. Ibe’s Tokyo R&D Centre following a hair-raising trip through outer space to realize their mutually aligned intergalactic goals.

See what happens next when you watch the final episode here at https://www.gshock.com/collections/gorillaz-watches and Gorillaz YouTube, art-directed by Jamie Hewlett, with French directors collective BRVTVS.

In honor of the album’s distinctive artwork, the classic DW-5600 model has been reimagined in celebration of Gorillaz’ most recent album, ‘The Now Now’. The design features a color combination of blue and pink with the bi-color message ‘NOW’ that floats onto the display whenever it is illuminated by the backlight. The watch also has Bluetooth capability which can be synced with G-SHOCK’s proprietary app, allowing access to a variety of features and functions direct from your Smartphone.

The second timepiece in the collection, the GA-2000 is the latest watch to be launched by G-SHOCK and features the iconic camo print familiar to Gorillaz fans worldwide to honor the Gorillaz’ 2001 eponymous debut release. This watch comes complete with two wrist bands – one featuring the camo print and the other in a darker military style, which can be easily interchanged and worn alternatively.

Both models sport standard G-SHOCK iconic features including shock, vibration and water resistance.

The limited edition GORILLAZ x G-SHOCK collection will retail for $170 and is exclusively available for purchase at gshock.com and G-SHOCK Soho Store starting September 18, 2019. The limited edition GORILLAZ x G-SHOCK collection will be exclusively available for purchase at select G‐SHOCK retailers including Macy’s starting September 25, 2019.

About G-SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com.

Monsieur Job To Perform at the Colombia Billboard Showcase

Monsieur Job To Perform at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase in Bogota on July 26

The Band Will Join Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown, Arthur Hanlon and More for A Spectacular Night of Multimedia and Music

On the heels of their highly successful and widely talked about performance at the ICON Awards in Colombia on June 13th, the fast rising international Pop/Latino/Underground group Monsieur Job will be performing alongside some of the industry’s top artists including Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown and Arthur Hanlon at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase on Friday July 26th at the Movistar Arena in Bogota. Last year, the Billboard Latin Music Showcase was held for the first time in Bogota, where Colombian artists such as Manuel Medrano, Maia and Gusi, among others performed.

Monsieur Job has been very busy so far this year, releasing new music including “Vidana”, “Mi Contagie”, “Dulce Soledad”, “Gucci Celine”, “Desechable”, “Fire Fire (Block Remix)”, “Gidi Gidi Gi”, “Tanto Tiempo Sin Verte”, “I Wanna Be Your Dog (Block Remix)”, and “Flexin (Block Remix)” and producing videos for many of the singles including media favorites “Busque Mal”(which was also directed by Iye Teblu AKA Toby Holguin and his production company Mierda Frita) and “Homie (Block Remix)” Feat. Vick D.

Along with the singles and videos, bandleader Toby Holguin has shifted focus somewhat recently, adding writing/directing/acting/producing to his resume with TWO upcoming films – his new debut short film, the aforementioned “Gidi Gidi Gi” which he wrote and directed as Iye Teblu, along with Peruvian film “Un Hombre Sin Ley”. Both are through his “Mierda Frita” production company based in Bogotá, Colombia that dedicates itself to film products like music videos, short films, and feature films as well as film services.

Toby Holguin lives music and gives music life. It was Toby’s vision to create Monsieur Job, a band that will rock you make you move your feet. The band, whose name is derived from “Job” of the bible; a righteous man who is tested by God, enduring many tragedies and hardships while struggling to remain faithful – will make you cry with passion. Formed by Holguin from Cali, Colombia, a beautiful place high in the mountains above the clouds. Toby then asked Charlie Illera from Barranquilla, Colombia, and Leo Jaramillo from Bogota, Colombia to become one musically as Monsieur Job. All of them live and breathe their own style of music combined they are Monsieur Job. Toby, Leo and Charlie spin records as DJs constantly for different pools and venues around the world. Moreover, Toby had the idea to start doing Urban Music besides Chill Out and Electronic Music, which is the vision that created the album “Bass Passi”. They started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean Latin flavor turning it into an international exclusive mash up of world talents and a unique blend of genres.

For their debut release, Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow, the record has hit the Euro Indie Music Chart at #1 for 9 consecutive weeks as well as progressive singles; “Kick it” Remix feat. Charly Black, “Pica Pica”, Niña Shake Your Body” feat. No Mercy & Vojke Djans and “Chilliando Hangueando” feat. Cholo reaching the #1 position as well, the Digital Radio Tracker Top 10, and Top 200 for Best Albums, #2 for the Billboard Latin Rhythm Albums Chart, and the Billboard Top 10 Heatseekers Albums Chart for their album “Bass Passi”. This album was recorded in Bogota and Miami at Basswalk Studios, Outta Limits Studios in Miami, and Barba Studios in Belgrade and mastered at Sterling Studios, New York.

Local Natives Concert Review

On Saturday night, a five-piece-indie-rock band, Local Natives brought the energy to the Palladium with their symphonic tones, unique instrumentals, and airy soft lyrics. The LA native band played multiple songs throughout the night from their new album Violet Streets. This album explores adulthood, love, and friendships.

The band opened the show with a piece called “Vogue” from their album Violet Streets. The band then quickly livened up the audience by singing one of their older songs, “Sun Hands” in which lead singer, Taylor Rice jumped into the sea of screaming fans to crowd surf. 

The fans continued screaming throughout the show, especially once the band played the song, “Fountains of Youth”, which was a song released in November of 2016, right before the elections took place. 

The group finished their set with the song “When Am I Gonna Lose You”, which lead singer, Rice, explained was an ode to love. As the LA native boy band announced their last song, the crowd was in tears. The phrase “encore” could be heard from miles away. The band came back on to perform a few more songs until they had to say their last goodbye.

Complete with stunning light shows, seamless transitions, and phenomenal vocals, the Local Natives seemed to impress the crowd.

Phony Ppl Premiere Dizzying Visuals of “Way Too Far”

Phony Ppl recently unleased their new album mō’zā-ik (300 Entertainment), the follow-up to 2015 Yesterday’s Tomorrow. Blending soul, funk, R&B and more, each song on the 11-track set plays as an extended jam between five musicians playing at their peak and garnered attention from the likes of NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and NYLON, who called the album “ethereal as hell.”

Recently, the Brooklyn-based quintet release the dizzying visuals for their song, “Way Too Far.” Directed by Joe Well who has directed videos for Kendrick Lamar, YG, Puff Daddy, and The Internet, the production company who produced the video–Pyscho Films–recently produced the video for Jay Rock ft.

How To Keep Yourself Entertained During Long-Haul Travel

Got a long journey ahead of you? It is easy to get bored on long-haul travel particularly if you are by yourself, but fortunately, there are many great ways to keep yourself entertained, and many of these can be productive and valuable. You may want to try a few of the following on your next long-haul flight, and it is good to have a few ideas up your sleeve in case you quickly become bored of one or if you are finding it difficult to get any sleep or rest. So, read on for a few different ways that you can keep yourself entertained during any long-haul journey.

Reading

Reading is perfect for a long-haul journey as it can keep your mind busy, but it is also a healthy and valuable pastime. Additionally, many people find that reading can help them to get tired and fall asleep easier which is ideal if you are on an overnight flight. On top of this, there are so many different books and styles to choose from so you should always be able to find something that piques your interest.

Film/TV

Planes often have films and TV that you can watch, which is a superb way to kill a few hours. If there are no films or TV on the flight, then you could always download a few on a tablet or similar device so that you can easily watch on a long journey.

There are many amazing TV boxsets which are very easy to binge on so you could easily get stuck into one of these on the journey.

Remember: Pack a pair of headphones, otherwise you won’t be able to listen privately! Try and download a variety of films and programs so you don’t get bored and can change genre if you feel like it.

Casino Games

Casino games are great fun, and there are endless variations, so you should easily be able to find a few that you enjoy playing on a long-haul journey. Unibet casino games have a wide range on offer with an easy-to-use system which will make it easy to play even if you do not have much experience in casino games.

Listen To Music

Music can be a great form of distraction and particularly if you are listening to your favorite band or just discovering a new artist. Before setting off on your journey, consider loading up your phone or device with all your favorite music along with a few new artists and the time is sure to fly by.  Additionally, podcasts can be another good way to pass the time, and there are so many to choose from which means that it should not be hard to find a series that interests you.

Long-haul journeys can be boring particularly if you are traveling solo. The above are all excellent ways to keep yourself entertained which should help to pass the time, and you may even find that you enjoy the journey if you are able to get hooked into a book/TV show/film or discover a new artist or favorite game. Just be sure to plan ahead, and bring everything that you need with you to make the most of the journey ahead.

G-SHOCK x Gorillaz

Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces the launch of the first ever G-SHOCK x Gorillaz collaboration. With 2018 marking G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary and the release of an acclaimed new album from the planet’s Most Successful Virtual Act, this collaboration comes at an exciting time for both parties.

The two internationally renowned entities have come together to offer reimaged designs to classic G-SHOCK styles, designed specifically with Gorillaz band members in mind. The DW5600 has been re-imagined for 2D, Murdoc Niccals and Noodle in three different colorways, each showcasing their personalities through additional character-specific detailing and individual packaging. G-SHOCK’s DW5600 case, “The Origin,” is a classic style, first launched in 1986. It is extremely durable, offering no limitations to its wearer. The DW5600 boasts universal usability and key features including shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance and an LCD scratch resistant watch face.

A fourth model is inspired by Gorillaz drummer, Russel Hobbs. Designed in the more robust GX56 case, “The King,” is solar powered, alongside standard G-SHOCK technology including shock resistance and mud resistance.

G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary celebrates the brand as the first watch that stunned the world with a concept for toughness that defied conventional watchmaking logic. G-SHOCK has pushed the limits of watch design over the years, with continually improving technology, design concepts and breaking boundaries.

A global phenomenon embracing a truly collaborative philosophy, Gorillaz have topped charts around the world and toured the globe from San Diego to Syria, picking up hundreds of millions of streams and record sales along the way, achieving success in entirely ground-breaking ways.

The G-SHOCK x Gorillaz partnership brings together two world class, innovative and renowned entities to offer a classic style redefined once again. The full collection will be available at the G-SHOCK Soho Store and GSHOCK.comthis winter with Murdoc and 2D retailing for $120 beginning November 15 and Noodle and Russel following on December 15 for $120 and $170 respectively.
