Alison Wonderland Kicks Off Headline Tour

Tonight, Alison Wonderland will launch her summer U.S. headline tour with a sold-out show at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO. A second Denver show has been added on August 4. The run includes concerts at Seattle’s WaMu Theatre (August 10) and Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles (August 17). See below for itinerary. Tickets are available at alisonwonderland.com.

The outing follows Wonderland’s performances at numerous festivals. Run The Trap hailed her set at Belgium’s Tomorrowland as “a work of art, unforgettable.” Dancing Astronaut named her as one of the “artists you can’t miss at Spring Awakening” and ran this Q&A with WonderlandThe Chicago Tribune said, “Alison Wonderland, the only woman appearing on a main stage this year, ushered in the evening with a buoyant set that featured her singles ‘Church’ and ‘Easy.’ Billboard ranked her performance among the Top 5 Dance Highlights at Coachella and noted, “Wonderland came to the table with nothing but a home run on the menu.”

Naming her as one of the “breakout musicians ready to rock your summer,” Elle observed, ‘Wonderland’ punctuates lyrics about self-worth and self-care with soul-thumping beats.” She is touring in support of her sophomore album, AWAKE (Astralwerks), which entered Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1 a feat she also accomplished with her self-titled 2015 debut album, Run.

Wonderland brought her writing and producing skills to each of AWAKE’s 14 tracks and was joined in the studio by a red-hot roster of collaborators, including Joel Little (Lorde), Illangelo (The Weeknd), Party Favor (Mad Decent) and long-time friend Lido. Features include Chief Keef on “Dreamy Dragon” and Trippie Redd on “High.”

One of the latest remixes from AWAKE is from Valentino Khan. One of EDM’s biggest names, Khan has collaborated with the likes of Diplo, Skrillex and Steve Aoki and regularly flips the biggest tracks from the world’s biggest stars. His thunderous remix of “Good Enough” pushes up the BPM to fever pitch, combining his impeccable production chops with the ghosts of UK bassline and hardcore. Check out Khan’s up for it, rave-ready remix of “Good Enough” HERE.

EDM Tunes praised London-based duo Billion’s ‘dance ready remix’ of “Easy.” Billion comprising Ed Butler and Robbie Lamond are known for their eclectic blend of garage, house and techno and have earned support from the BBC’s Skream, Annie Mac and Mistajam. Download / stream “Easy” (Billion Remix) HERE.

Kaivon who found his audience with a striking series of singles based on the theme of rebirth has also remixed “Easy.” In a track premiere, YourEDM.com said, “Kaivon keeps the emotional tone while pumping up the energy just a bit, turning the more ballad-like original into a future bass climax. It’s not hard to imagine the pyrotechnics that might accompany this track in a set, or the reaction from the crowd when it’s dropped.” Download / stream “Easy” (Kaivon Remix) HERE.

Two Wild Women Expeditions

The trail blazer of women-only travel has created two itineraries where few travel. On five departures in 2018, Wild Women Expeditions immerses women in the physically challenging, poignantly stunning landscape of Newfoundland in the remote northeastern corner of Canada.

 

Two distinct, week-long adventures engage guests on Newfoundland’s western shore, separated from Quebec by the Gulf of St. Lawrence that eventually pours into the North Atlantic.

 

This is home turf for Wild Women Expeditions that offers more active travel departures for women only than any other tour operator in the world. The company was founded in Newfoundland and maintains its headquarters here. Owner Jennifer Haddow grew up near Gros Morne National Park where many of the itineraries’ activities take place.

 

“This is a place of stark ancient beauty, where the ground beneath your feet tells the story of Earth’s geological history. It’s also a place where icebergs stroll up and down coastal waters and where fjords claw their way into the interior,” explained Haddow, noting that few other adventure travel companies offer tours here.

 

Indigenous peoples predated the Vikings who arrived some 1000 years ago. England first raised a flag on the North American continent in the late 16th century in what came to be called Newfoundland. Fishermen soon discovered some of the Atlantic’s most productive waters here. The park’s Long Range Mountains testify to this once geologically charged world rife with volcanos and glaciers. These mountains are part of the Appalachian chain rising from Georgia through Maine.

 

“Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is as important to Plate Tectonics Theory as Ecuador’s Galapagos Archipelago is to the Theory of Evolution,” Haddow added. “The challenges of this environment become metaphors for the challenges faced by the women who choose to travel with us.”

 

Hiking first through a barren landscape, women discover where the peridotite ends and ancient oceanic crust begins. They hike through a boreal forest to the rugged coastline where pillow lava and sea stacks dominate the shore. They move to the rich marine wonderland of Bonne Bay and a landlocked lake before summiting Gros Morne Mountain in a hike of up to 10 hours.

 

Following are two 2018 Wild Women Expeditions’ itineraries in Newfoundland. Daily challenges reflect the company’s philosophy that women can discover and build on their own inner strengths by mastering hurdles in the safe company of other women.

 

Newfoundland Gros Morne Multi-Sport Adventure is a seven-day hiking and kayaking expedition in one of the wildest places in Canada. In 2018 there are three departures: July 21-27, Aug. 11-17 and Sept. 8-14. The $2,695 CAD per person rate includes professional local female guides, all meals, six nights shared accommodation in oceanside cabins, fully outfitted sea kayak day trip on Bonne Bay, guided hikes, ground transportation, park pass and Western Brook Pond Fjord boat tour.

 

Guests walk on rugged trails over the Earth’s mantle that supports little to no vegetation, explore fossil remains, visit an artsy village, kayak in a sheltered fjord, witness Minke whales, eagles, terns, and kingfishers in the bay and on land; caribou, Rock ptarmigan and Arctic hare. There’s also time to relax on a boat tour of a land-locked fjord accessed through bogs and limestone ridges. For trip details see http://wildwomenexpeditions.com/trips/newfoundland-multisport/.

 

Icebergs and Arts Adventure is an eight-day wilderness immersion with a hefty dollop of culture on two departures in 2018: June 3-10 and July 6-13. The per person rate of $2,695 CAD includes professional female guides; all meals; seven nights shared accommodation in an authentic house and suites, a wilderness lodge and seaside cabins; guided and fully outfitted sea kayak day; guided hikes and interpretive walks in Gros Morne National Park and along the Great Northern Peninsula; Western Brook Pond Fjord boat tour and iceberg and whale watching boat tour; interpretive tour and lunch at the French Shore Museum in Conche; and a visit to L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where Viking history comes alive.

 

At Port aux Choix National Historic Site guests hike to Philips Garden to explore the ancient remains of one of the largest Dorset Paleoeskimo settlements in the Eastern Canadian Arctic. They also visit the Myra Bennett Heritage House, the home of a nurse known along the 200 miles of coast simply as “the nurse.” This remarkable woman brought her life-saving skills to what was then an isolated, rugged Great Northern Peninsula. See: https://wildwomenexpeditions.com/trips/newfoundland/

 

“Canada is a country designed for adventurers. For women who want it all, Canada delivers the goods,” said Haddow. “We’ve been trailblazing outdoor adventures in Canada for over a quarter of a century. Increasingly women want to feel the freedom of connecting with wild space in its finest form. In Canada are some of the wildest and grandest natural treasures on the planet.”

 

Wild Women Expeditions’ Canadian programs are prototypes for the baptism-by-wilderness experiences that Haddow’s team arranges in 26 countries this year. These journeys reflect that… 

  • Women need opportunities to just be themselves, together;
  • The wilderness helps women connect with elements of their psyche that may be lost in the daily hustle and bustle;
  • Pairing women and wilderness often encourages women beyond their comfort zones, leading to increased confidence;
  • These ingredients can be transformational, perhaps leading to answers to the question that Poet Mary Oliver poses: What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? 

 

About :

Founded in 1991, Wild Women Expeditions is the world’s largest women-only travel company. Its initial focus was on canoeing on remote Ontario waters. Through an unwavering focus on Canada, one of the wildest, most pristine countries in the world, Wild Women Expeditions became Canadian experts in a pioneering niche that introduced small groups of women into wilderness settings. Even though the company now hosts guests all over the world, it retains a national focus with more trips and more women-only, backcountry camping adventures in Canada than any other women’s travel company in the world.

YUNGBLUD

UK recording artist Yungblud, whom NME has said carries himself like “a hyper-addictive mix between rapper Eminem and Johnny Rotten,” releases his self-titled debut EP today via all digital partners. Listen to Yungblud HERE.

With his frenetic take on alt-pop equally inspired by punk, hip-hop, and UK garage, Yungblud uses breakneck flow and tongue-in-cheek attitude to deliver pointed lyrics about everything from gentrification to disenfranchisement to addiction without getting heavy-handed. “I want my music to always have a message, but I don’t want to preach to anybody,” says the Northern England native, whose given name is Dominic Harrison. “This music’s just an outburst of emotion and anger, and everything else going on in my head.”

The Yorkshire-born, London-based Yungblud, produced by Matt Schwartz – known for his work on Massive Attack and Kylie Minogue, and brought to Geffen/Interscope by executive producer Martin Terefe who has worked with Jason Mraz and KT Tunstall.

The EP features “King Charles” and “Tin Pan Boy” (which Wonderland called “a bold and biting call to social justice”) and the current single “I Love You, Will You Marry Me,” which takes its title from a real-life, ill-fated marriage proposal spray-painted at a public housing project in South Yorkshire. Watch the live performance video for “ILYWYMM” HEREand the self-directed video for “Tin Pan Boy” HERE. The EP also includes two brand-new songs, “Anarchist” and “Polygraph Eyes,” a seedy portrait of a Saturday night out that also serves as a delicate commentary on consent and “lad mentality.”

In a recent profile of Yungblud, Wonderland raves about his “captivating songwriting,” while Nylon notes that “Harrison imbues every ounce of raucous energy into songs that defy genre.” NME has called him “utterly thrilling” and says that “what makes Yungblud so intriguing is the versatility in his material already, and how confident he feels about pulling it all off.”

Yungblud, who is on the road in Europe through early February, hits the road for a U.S. spring tour with K.Flay beginning March 12 in Washington, DC. “If you ever get the chance to see him perform live, his passion is evident in the way he throws himself around the stage, spitting ferocious lyrics at the front row and strutting around with the confidence you only have if you were born to do something,” writes Wonderland

YUNGBLUD RELEASES NEW TRACK “TIN PAN BOY” 

LISTEN HERE

Yungblud releases his brand-new track “Tin Pan Boy” today via Locomotion / Geffen Records. The song is available HERE

The release of the nineteen-year-old, Yorkshire-born artist’s new track comes just days after he unveiled the official video for “I Love You, Will You Marry Me.”

Speaking about the inspiration of the new track, Yungblud says: “I spent most of my childhood on Denmark Street, Soho, London, it’s where I first picked up a guitar. At the moment there is a massive redevelopment going on which will eventually force a lot of independent businesses out of the area – I have a real connection to all the music and art stores and to see people trying to tear out its soul makes me super upset and really pissed off. FUCK THAT! Tin Pan Alley is where the foundations of British rock and roll and the pop music that we know today were built. Everyone from Jagger to Lennon to the Sex Pistols used to hang out there. To sit back and watch the transformation happen without saying something is not an idea that I’m into.” 

“Tin Pan Boy” once again shows off Yungblud’s unique blend of alternative rock: poetry, crunching guitar-hooks and energetic break beats – all brought together with his own fierce determination to make a serious dent in pop culture.

Yungblud recently wrapped a run of US dates. He will head out on a European tour, complete with six UK and Ireland dates, in early 2018. Find full dates below and ticket info here.

Lewis Capaldi

LEWIS CAPALDI RELEASES NEW TRACK – “FADE” – TODAY ON CAPITOL RECORDS

“FADE” APPEARS ON SCOTTISH ARTIST’S DEBUT EP, BLOOM, OUT OCTOBER 20TH 
Capaldi To Join Milky Chance On January 2018 North American Tour

 

 
Scottish artist Lewis Capaldi releases a new track, “Fade,” today via all digital partners. Listen HERE. The track was co-written by Capaldi and Grammy-Award winner Malay (Frank Ocean, Sam Smith, Zayn Malik), who also produced it.

 

“The whole process of creating ‘Fade’ has been a bit surreal. I co-wrote it with Malay, who also produced the track. I’m such a massive fan of his and it was incredible to work on this together. Like my other two singles, we ended up using parts of the original demo in the final song which I loved and I hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as I’ve enjoyed making it,” says Capaldi, 20, who was recently nominated for a Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the Scottish Music Awards.
“Fade” will appear on Capaldi’s upcoming debut EP, Bloom, which will be released on Capitol Records on October 20th. Bloom also features Capaldi’s previous singles Lost On You,” which was included in Spotify’s New Music Friday in over 20 countries, and “Bruises,” which held the No. 1 spot on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and has amassed over 26 million total streams globally. A stripped-down ballad that looks back on a failed relationship, “Bruises” showcases Capaldi’s nimble vocal ability, as he effortlessly slips between smooth baritone, gravelly mid-tone, and haunting falsetto with pinpoint accuracy. Hailing from the small town of Bathgate, outside of Glasgow, Capaldi sold out two headlining shows at Glasgow’s famed King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and embarked on his first UK headlining tour, which sold out within minutes, before any of his music was officially released. He will tour Europe this fall with Rag’n’Bone Man, followed by his second UK sold out headlining tour in December. Tickets and tour dates can be found HERE. Capaldi will also tour the U.S. and Canada with Milky Chance in January. See below for all tour dates.

The track-listing for the Bloom EP is as follows:
1. Fade

2. Bruises

3. Mercy

4. Lost On You
