Allan Rayman

Today, Toronto-based singer/songwriter Allan Rayman releases his new single and video for “Stitch” via Republic Records/KIDinaKORNER. The video features Canadian designer Daniel Gregory Nataleand shows Allan following Daniel as he brings his designs to life with a full runway show.
 
Check out the video for “
Stitch HERE and song HERE!
 
“Stitch” was produced by GRAMMY Award winning producer Alex da Kid and mixed by GRAMMY Award winning mixer Manny Marroquin, and the video was directed by Steph Verschuren. “Stitch” is the lead single off Rayman’s upcoming album,
 CHRISTIAN, to be released later this year.
 
Of the song, Allan Rayman says, “‘Stitch’” was one of the first songs I made with Alex. It’s fun. For the video, I wanted to follow my friend Dan around New York, see his day to day as an up and coming fashion designer.”
 
“Stitch” follows Allan’s recent single “
Poison,” which was released in anticipation for his current headline tour that concludes tonight at San Francisco’s August Hall. The tour dubbed The Allan Rayman Show has seen Rayman across 22 major cities in North America and included recent performances at Brooklyn’s Warsaw and Los Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom.
 
Reviews from
 The Allan Rayman Show have been outstanding with Substream Magazine noting, “For (Allan Rayman), there’s a real authenticity in pulling back the curtain and leading with his art,” and Early Bird Magazine naming him an “enormously enigmatic artist (that) filled his set with drama and theatrics as he created an atmosphere of tension and release throughout the night.”
 
“Stitch” and “Poison” are the follow ups to Allan’s critically acclaimed album
 Harry Hard-On released late last year via Republic Records/KIDindaKorner. “Rose,” the album’s debut single, climbed the alternative radio charts and has nearly three million Spotify streams to date. Harry Hard-On has also been met with critical praise, with TIME Magazine heralding the track “Crush,” saying,“Rayman’s voice contains multitudes: a rough ache, a smooth hum, a rock star’s confidence.”

Volbeat

Today multi-platinum Danish rock band Volbeat debut the music video for their new song “Last Day Under The Sun,” from their upcoming album Rewind, Replay, Rebound. The video was directed by Jakob Printzlau, who has previously directed Volbeat’s videos for “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown,” “Lonesome Rider” “16 Dollars” and “Cape Of Our Hero.” Michael Poulsen, guitarist and lead singer for the band, reveals that the lyrics for the song were inspired by a book about Johnny Cash: “When I read his book, he went through tough times with alcohol and drugs… He walked into a cave to lay down to die. But he wakes up and feels like he has been given a second chance.” Watch the video for “Last Day Under The Sun” here. Check out “Last Day Under The Sun”here.

Volbeat will release their seventh album Rewind, Replay, Rebound, on August 2nd via Republic Records. 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 for pre-order 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. “Cheapside Sloggers” features a ripping guitar solo by Exodus and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt. 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.

The band has also announced the first leg of the Rewind, Replay, Rebound World Tour, with support from Baroness & Danko Jones. This tour will find the band performing in cities including London, Madrid, Berlin, Hamburg and Stockholm (full dates below) and tickets for all dates are on sale now here.

The band has previously announced that they will join Slipknot on their extensive Knotfest Roadshow North American Tour as special guests, alongside Gojira and Behemoth. The 29-date tour will kick off July 26th in Mountain View, CA with additional stops in Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Austin (full dates below).  Tickets for these dates are on sale now here.

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 albumSeal 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.

We’re Still Here Together

Santana lead vocalist Andy Vargas has a new collab with R&B/soul singer Frankie J entitled “We’re Still Here Together,” to be released June 21, along with a lyric video. The soulful track celebrates long-lasting love that triumphs the test of time. Vargas, fresh off the heels of a successful Spring tour and Las Vegas residency, will perform a headlining show with Santana at the Hollywood Bowl on June 24. Check out “We’re Still Together” here.   

“I am excited to release this new single with fellow vocalist and music producer Frankie J.  Frankie and I crossed paths several times throughout the years, but never had a chance to really connect until a few years ago when we worked together on a charity initiative in San Diego.  We have always had a mutual respect for each other’s talent.  We love the same style of music and we anticipated the opportunity to work together one day.  Writing this song with Frankie J and Adrian Cisneros was a perfect synergy. And bringing in the very talented Rodney Alejandro who produced the song with Frankie J, drove the song home with his incredible production skills. I believe that this single really captures the essence of my sound, the Souleros sound, which is the sound of the New Chicano Soul,” said Vargas.

Vargas struck world-wide fame over a decade ago when he became the lead-singer for the iconic rock band, led by 12-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist Carlos Santana. Twenty world tours later, Vargas is embarking on a solo project with his signature Latin R&B sound – Souleros – a blend of “soul” and “boleros” influenced by classic funk and R&B/soul music.

2019 is an exciting and action-packed year for Vargas. He is embarking on a worldwide tour with Santana in celebration of 50 years of Santana’s music, the 50th Anniversary of Santana’s Woodstock performance and the 20th Anniversary of Santana’s ‘Supernatural’ album. 

The “Supernatural Now” tour with the Doobie Brothers kicks off June 20 at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine and includes the Hollywood Bowl on June 24th and a series of New York area dates in late August.

He will release a full-length solo, debut album in August, preceded by several singles, including a guest appearance from Carlos Santana on a new version of “Oye Como Va”.

Vargas’s previous single “The Beat” was featured by ESPN’s “Music Of The Month” this year and was released in both English and Spanish versions.

His masterful soul-tinged voice has also graced stages with Enrique Iglesias, Patti Labelle and   Taboo of the Black-Eyed Peas.

Kevin Takarada Opens Second MakiMaki

A son of a successful restauranteur, Kevin Takarada hardly saw his father who worked long nights and weekends operating his many restaurants in South Beach Miami, including the first and now oldest sushi bar. Yearning for a different lifestyle, Kevin initially pursued an entirely unrelated career – one that began in Engineering and later involved a decade at a top-level wall street bank. 

However, as Kevin remained involved in the family business, the restaurant industry remained close to his heart.  Ever observant of the evolving quick service restaurant scene in Midtown Manhattan, Kevin came to realize that for the many fast-casual lunch options there was an utter lack of quality and affordable sushi.  Kevin saw an opportunity for a new fast-casual restaurant concept that would combine quality sushi, reachable prices and quick service. 

Thus, informed by his professional experiences in engineering and finance, Kevin developed a concept of MakiMaki that offered custom-made, high-quality sushi rolls made in a contemporary fast-casual style at reasonable prices.  By re-engineering the entire process of making Japanese sushi rolls and introducing automation, MakiMaki is able to increase productivity, reduce labor costs, improve quality of fish and ultimately make great quality sushi at quick speed and affordable price. The first MakiMaki opened in June 2017.  The second location is slated to open in June 2019.
