The original lineup of instrumental masters the Dixie Dregs will be hitting the road in 2018.

Rod Morgenstein, Andy West, Allen Sloan, Steve Davidowski and Steve Morse—the same Dregs lineup behind 1977's Free Fall—have officially reunited, as they announced yesterday via a very brief press release.

The band's website adds a few more details:
"Hello, everyone! We are starting back at the beginning—with the band as it was in 1975 when we were touring the South and trying to get a record deal. Together we recorded our first commercially produced album, Free Fall. We are reincarnating the band and will announce 2018 tour dates soon. Welcome to the return of the Dixie Dregs!"

Actually, there are already some 2018 dates on the band's official site, and you can check them out here.

“It Tastes Like Sugar” is the first studio EP, published by Bagana Records in october 2016. It has been recorded at the prestigious Magnitude Studios in Seregno (MB), with the artistic production by Titta Morganti (Mellowtoy). 
Don’t miss the video singles: Wasted and the rock cover Summertime Sadness, originally from Lana Del Rey.


Killin’ Baudelaire: Four girls who connect rock and metal Music with their deep passion for literature, and found this brand-new all-female project in 2015.
“It Tastes Like Sugar” is the first studio EP, published by Bagana Records in october 2016. It has been recorded at the prestigious Magnitude Studios in Seregno (MB), with the artistic production by Titta Morganti (Mellowtoy).
The brand-new EP has reached great reviews and approvals from press/journalists and workers in the Music sector (Metal.it, Metallus, Metal In Italy, Metalwave, Italia di Metallo, All Around Metal, Rockrebelmagazine, Artistsandbands, Iyezine, etc.). To mention the interviews @ Radio Lombardia and Sky network:
• MagSky - Interview to the band
• SkyUno - Martina Leo & the Tattoos
The band has also taken part in a ROCK TV program, SKY Channel 718.

"It Tastes Like Sugar" is strictly connected to the symbolic image in the front cover and to the related concept behind, too. It’s a wordplay that connects immediately to that image, but also consequently related to the concept of Love. A Love that is supposed to taste like sugar, but like every human expression, reveals also a dark side...

The band has already played on the most prestigious stages all over Italy and continues to collect great approvals, show by show. Videos: 
- “Wasted” is the first single taken from the first EP, released in june 2016. It has reached more than 3000 views in just one week. “It represents the winner’s fighting shout, who had the strength to get out of a negative situation or relationship, and who can now look finally proud behind”.
- “Summertime Sadness” Lana Del Rey Cover 
Released in September 2016, the rock version of the worldwide famous song originally from Lana Del Rey.

Elisa ‘Helly' Scandella - Vocals
Martina 'Nixe’ Riva - Guitars
Alice 'Lane' Pandini - Bass
Martina ‘Cleo’ Ungarelli - Drums

Frizzi 2 Fulci – U.S. Tour 2017
Live Tribute to the Films of Lucio Fulci
With Italian masters composers Frizzi & Fasciani

Here’s another tour that takes its fundamentals from the Frizzi 2 Fulci Project, conceived many years ago in the mind of the Maestro and finally brought to the stage, both Italian and international, in 2013. 
That year marked the incredible beginning of a series of events held in great venues all over the world. 

Now, the time has come for a new evolution of the show, embracing not only the iconic scores composed by the Maestro for cult movies in the thriller and horror genres directed by his beloved friend Lucio Fulci but going a bit deeper into the horror, thriller, prog rock and funk career of the Maestro, augmenting the concert program that scored so many sold out gigs with the robust support of new orchestrations. 

People will be enthralled listening to new suites dedicated to “The Beyond”, “A Cat in the Brain”, “The Psychic”, “Zombie Flesh Eaters”, Manhattan Baby and many other Lucio Fulci movies alternated with adrenaline-powered performances featuring his astonishing productions for other great filmmakers of both millennia. 



A new show’ series, fueled by a great band of 6 top-quality musicians (Roberto Fasciani, Riccardo Rocchi, Alessandro Errichetti, Federico Tacchia, Giulietta Zanardi, Alessio Contorni) in the US  artistic landscape, strongly based on the fantastic and mysterious with a great inspirational soul behind it, an artistic godfather: Lucio Fulci.

Fabio Frizzi is one of the most celebrated Italian film composers, and respected in the same iconic pantheon as Ennio Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin and Gianni Ferrio. Frizzi's influence has been cited by a vast range of contemporary artists ranging from Boards OfCanada to Wu Tang’s RZA, and he is heavily referenced by the rising starsof synth-horror including Umberto and Zombi. 
Frizzi's work also resonate with cinephiles as Quentin Tarantino used the theme from “Seven Notes in Black” for his soundtrack to “Kill Bill” VOL 1.




The US Tour will encompass 9 total locations:

October 24th – BOSTON – Coolidge Theatre
October 26th – PORTLAND – Hollywood Theatre
October, 27th – DALLAS – Texas Theatre
Ocotber, 28th – CHARLOTTE – The Booth Playhouse
October, 29th – NEW YORK – Music Hall of Williamsburg
October, 30th – NEW YORK – Music Hall of Williamsburg
October, 31st – SCHENECTADY – Proctors Theatre
November, 1st – PHILADELPHIA – Underground Arts
November, 2nd – NEW YORK – Nitehawk Cinema (Guest Appearance) 

“My dream was to become a composer of soundtracks; if I have made it happen, I think my friend Lucio played a crucial role.” – Fabio Frizzi

“I really believe in the magic of music, in all the emotions that can bring to people… and the message could be different because everyone live the music in his own way. So the most important thing is to get something… as for me, to give it. Music let people live better, let them dream and unite; my goal is to create something in which the audience can get involved in, to share my love of music with people and have a connection with them, like talking to each other with no words but sounds and atmospheres” – Roberto Fasciani

Mirko DeFox and X-HERO to celebrate the 30 years since the release of the debut album, dated 1987, publish a EP entitled "Cosmic Virgin" with two unpublished tracks, "My ship knows" and "Long legs Razorblade" recorded in the middle of the years 2000 at the Vision Studios in Vicenza.

As Mirko tells, the band's repertoire was moving with melodic Hard Rock tunes with finest Prog Metal and Fusion.
Mirko's constant search for stylistic solutions away from homologation with trends and genres of the moment, leads him to create a different, visceral album where the glories of the past are barely perceptible, and the shades, riffs and arrangements so they become a chaotic collection of unexpressed moods.
For a variety of reasons, the album will never see the light but after a decade, some recordings will be released in the form of EP.



The song "My ship knows" is an explicit metaphor on the journey of humanity in search of a truth until now denied, while "Long legs Razorblade" evokes contradictions of sometimes life-threatening, sometimes deadly and relentless life.
With Mirko DeFox the line-up was completed by Herman Tonini (current band axeman) and Paris Bertoldo on guitars, Davide Pangrazzi on drums and Ivano Pangrazzi on bass.
The X-HERO performed live in northern Italy and in Slovenia and Croatia, to remember the performances of the 2005 and 2007 editions of the 80's Italian Metal Legion Festival, in 2005 the 80's Italian Metal Legion WINTER's Season, concerts with Bud Tribe, Rain, Dark Ages, Heat, Rosko's.

The visonary cover artwork is made by the extraordinary RRR Remi Real Rock for ANL.

The official release date is November 19, 2017, and the product will be distributed around the world on the best digital stores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music and many more.

2016’s seemingly never ending list of celebrity deaths hit music and film fans hard all over the world, but none more so than Australia’s psych-pop songwriter, Pluto Jonze, who was inspired to pay homage to his idol, David Bowie, through his new swagger-filled single ‘Swingin’ Like I’m Bowie’.

Watch the video for ‘Swingin’ Like I’m Bowie’ here

Having been in the process of building name for himself In Australia since 2012, with reasonable success, Pluto Jonze is looking to cement himself on the scene and break out into wider audiences across the world with his groove-heavy brand of psych-pop that takes influence from the likes of Beck, The Beatles, and of course, Bowie himself. Pluto feels this is the most accurate label for describing his music, yet within this ‘pop’ umbrella, he favours strong melodies and hooks, often driven by psychedelic production elements and lyrics.

‘Swingin’ Like I’m Bowie’ is powered by funk-laden guitars and a powerful beat that quickly make way for Jonze’s rock-tinged vocals and spacey synths which take centre stage during the memorable chorus. Pluto then throws himself fully into realms of psychedelia with the addition of the rarely used theremin for the bridge, displaying his experimental nature as a musician.

Jonze recalled that: ‘Last year sucked, I couldn’t listen to any of his songs (Bowie) without this sadness pinching me. Anyways, I’m over that and can now appreciate with clear eyes how he wanted his art to transcend himself and live on. He pushed the artistic envelope right to the end and this song is a celebration of that intent.’

The new track is accompanied by a trippy, kaleidoscopic video, which draws on the visuals from Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’. Whilst visiting his girlfriend at her medical placement in an Aboriginal community in Australia’s Northern Territory, Jonze met local producer, Donovan, who after having a few jam sessions with, helped Pluto find the ideal location and permissions to shoot his video in the spectacular scenery of the outback.

Pluto Jonze is also heading to the UK this summer for a few dates alongside fellow Australian cover band, Furnace and The Fundamentals. You can see his dates below:
Dates:
Sun 6 Aug - The Islington, London
Tue 8 Aug - The Islington, London
Wed 23 Aug - The Portland Arms, Cambridge
