Prog Duo JUPITER HOLLOW Announce New Album "Bereavement", Reveal Artwork & Track Listing
New Album "Bereavement" Out June 12th

Pre-Order Available

One of Toronto’s favourite ambient progressive metal/rock duo Jupiter Hollow announce they will be releasing their new album "Bereavement" on June 12th, 2020 to follow their two highly praised recordings “AHDOMN” (2018) and “Odyssey” (2016).

"Bereavement" is the continuation of the storyline from both previous releases. The band further explains:

"A man with unimaginable global power sends important members of his family and society away to a habitable world outside of our solar system in order to salvage humanity. As capable as this man is of salvaging humanity’s dying society on Earth, he finds more solace in the greed and power he has inherited. Victim of his lifelong internal battle with mental instability, he leaves humanity to extinction on Earth. Struggling with this outcome, he sends himself and his ship aimlessly into space, attempts suicide and crashes on a planet in another solar system. Upon awakening, he realizes where he is, and that he will soon meet the remaining faces that have abandoned him, just as he abandoned them, and they’re hungry."
The duo of Grant MacKenzie (Guitar, Bass, Synth) and Kenny Parry (Vocals, Drums, Piano, Synth) that form Jupiter Hollow are here to create an artistic experience unlike anything else in the industry. Inspired from the art of storytelling and adventure, they intend on taking you through an in-depth journey through their discography and encourage listeners to join them for every step along the way. Get ready as Jupiter Hollow will take you on a musical tour, from the studio to the stage, and every place in between. They are your tour guides.

About:

We are Jupiter Hollow. Some people consider us to be alternative metal, some people consider us to be progressive rock, and some people just like what they hear. We don’t believe in genre; we believe genre is an excuse to pigeonhole our sound. For us, we prefer to keep our options open.

When you hear Jupiter Hollow you may feel an overwhelming sense of space, arrangement and instrumentation. However, behind the music there are just 2 humans: Kenny Parry and Grant MacKenzie. We met on Earth in the year of 2015 at a musical gathering, where the universe inevitably conceived Jupiter Hollow. Since then, we’ve expressed part one of a conceptual endeavor called “AHDOMN”. This story is to be continued with the release of our new record “Bereavement” on June 12, 2020.

As for what Jupiter Hollow sounds like, that's for you to determine. We don't care what we sound like, since we don't have control over our destiny. Our path is written, but we must walk it. Therefore, the music has already been created in the future, and we are messengers of the present.
We are from Earth, from your future. Moving forward through time is to move forward through space. We are evolutionary descendants of our past, we evolve from our actions. Jupiter Hollow is here to share the missing link of your human existence.

"If Jupiter Hollow are emblematic of the next generation of progressive metal bands, a bright tomorrow lies ahead. Hugely impressive." ​- Prog Magazine.

"Without a doubt, Jupiter Hollow are elite musicians. Grant and Kenny know exactly how to captivate an audience with their music." - Alex CrazyAce, Host/Executive Producer of 'The Rush' on VIBE105 FM

"When a prog duo emerges with as much talent as Jupiter Hollow you are entitled to feel excited about the future." - Maximum Volume Music
"New listeners can expect to go on a musical journey when hearing Jupiter Hollow." - Barrie Advance

MUNDY'S BAY SHARE NEW SONG/VIDEO "SEASONS PASS"

DEBUT ALBUM "LONESOME VALLEY"DUE OUT MARCH 13th

This Friday, March 13th, Mundy's Bay launched their debut full-length, "Lonesome Valley", on Pure Noise Records, and today the Montreal-based band have shared their new song "Seasons Pass" and its accompanying music video. "Seasons Pass" is a buoyant cut of shimmering indie pop that showcases Mundy's Bay ability to seamlessly blend the melody and mood of dreampop with the driving energy of post-punk. Recorded by producer/engineer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Joyce Manor, Code Orange), "Lonesome Valley" immediately envelopes the listener in this enticing balance of atmosphere and hooks.

The members of Mundy’s Bay (vocalist/keyboardist Esther Mulders, guitarist Victor Beaudoin, guitarist John Donnelly and bassist Will Love) met in Montreal’s punk and hardcore scene, but set out to form a band with no stylistic confines. That highly collaborative and open approach to writing, along with a shared love of ‘80s and ‘90s musical touchstones, forms the band's core sound. Mulder's serene vocals guide the listener through dream-like explorations of love, loss, and longing, whether she's singing overtop of chiming guitar passages or waves of reverb-drenched distortion and winding bass lines. It's an impressive debut sure to please fans of moody post-punk and shimmering guitar pop alike.

BOSTON MANOR RELEASE TWO NEW SINGLES "RATKING" & "ON A HIGH LEDGE" FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM "GLUE" OUT MAY 1st

Boston Manor give us two new tastes of their forthcoming album "GLUE" which sees its release May 1 via Pure Noise Records. First up is "Ratking" and refers to a phenomenon that occurs when several rats' tails become intertwined and they get stuck. This causes them to struggle harder which only makes the knot tighter; eventually they're unable to move and they die.

Boston Manor relate that phenomenon to humankind with this track. As frontman Henry Cox explains: "'Ratking' is about our inability to empathize with each other and work together as a collective. Even those who consider themselves tolerant should look at their inbuilt biases. I think our inability to show compassion to people who think differently to us is what is holding us back. We've seen this so much over the last few years. Just because someone voted differently to you, it does not automatically make them a bad person or invalidate their feelings. Even if someone is a hateful person, don't deny that person the opportunity to change. We need to help each other to grow rather than trying to cancel, shout down, ridicule or attack each other".
Next up is "On A High Ledge". Cox has a lot to say on issues of mental health, 'man up' culture, the prevalence of male suicide in today's society and a lot more besides. "On A High Ledge" was written in dedication to a man who's suicide he witnessed as a child. He reveals: "When I was seven years old I saw a man commit suicide by jumping off the bus station in Blackpool a few feet in front of me. Growing up, I always rejected the idea of what a 'boy' should do; I never liked football, I thought fighting was stupid and at age six I spray painted my bike pink. I've always hated the term 'man up'. I think it is such a damaging thing to say to little boys. A big problem that we have to tackle is men's inability to seek help; it's this 'man up culture' that is baked into young men from a young age that makes them think - it's wrong to cry, it's wrong to share your feelings and being vulnerable is weak. The biggest killer of young men today is suicide. Obviously, mental health support in the UK and most of the world is not what it should be, and mental health issues affect everyone, not just men".

"I hope, as a society, we can teach little boys being born now that being sad is okay. Strangely, the day after we wrote this song, one of the guys in the band was driving home and saw a man on a bridge over the motorway about to jump. He quickly pulled off the road and managed to talk to the guy until an ambulance came. A strange coincidence, but I really hope that man is doing better now".

"GLUE" is a bold, outspoken and uncompromising record, one which Cox hopes will be a call to arms for everybody who listens to it - to make them realize they need to take notice of what's happening both around them and on a larger, more global scale. Inevitably, in a critical examination of modern constructs, it comes from a dark place but one that fueled Boston Manor to create a body of work that elevates their craft further than ever before. During what singer Henry Cox describes as a "very chaotic" process, came the 13 highly charged songs that make up this record.

Like its predecessor, "Welcome To The Neighbourhood", "GLUE" was recorded at The Barber Shop studios in New Jersey, but with a very different approach to that record. Produced by Mike Sapone and engineered by Brett Romnes, Cox admits that these are not just the most primal and plain-speaking songs the band have ever recorded, but everything the previous seven years have been leading up to. "This is the start of our band finally becoming the band that we want to be" he says. "It's taken us so long to get here, but I'm really proud of us for becoming our own thing. Not once did we think about what people wanted to hear - we just went entirely down the rabbit hole with it. Our only rule was to do what we wanted to do. And I'm really happy that we did that".


 
"GLUE" Tracklist:
1- Everything Is Ordinary
2 - 1's & 0's
3 - Plasticine Dreams
4 - Terrible Love
5 - On A High Ledge
6 - Only1
7 - You, Me & The Class War
8 - Playing God
9 - Brand New Kids
10 - Ratking
11 - Stuck In The Mud
12 - Liquid
13 - Monolith

Kari Rueslåtten releases new single; album details announced

Norwegian artist Kari Rueslåtten is set to release her new album "Sørgekåpe" on May 8th via Spindelsinn Recordings. The title-track of the upcoming album is now available as a single, which you can listen to at this location: Here 

Sørgekåpe starts where the Northern Sky meets a broken heart that cannot be mended. In this song Kari Rueslåtten aims to describe those lonely hours at night when every thought is blowing out of its proportions, and one loses the battle against reality. By the time morning light finds its way through the curtains, the mind is so fragile, it can be tipped over by the gentle touch of a butterflies’ wing. (Sørgekåpe is the Norwegian name for the butterfly Camberwell Beauty, or Mourning Cloak)

Kari Rueslåtten has one of the finest voices of alternative Nordic folk-pop, and a worldwide fan-base. She is known for her dark-edged melancholy uncovering the beauty hiding in the dark. The single is taken from the forthcoming album Sørgekåpe out spring 2020. This will be her eight solo album.

Kari Rueslåtten was one of the founder members of the progressive doom metal band The 3rd and the Mortal. The band defined a genre, and Kari Rueslåtten was one of the first role models for female singers fronting metal bands in the 1990s, and the main inspiration for many bands such as Nightwish and The Gathering. Toumas Holopainen (Nightwish), with whom Kari Rueslåtten also have collaborated, has claimed Kari Rueslåtten’s voice as one of the greatest in the world.

PC-Newton “Now last time”/"Il traduttore" single Eur Records 2020

The PC-Newton duo returns with a new single that from the first listening confirms what we had noticed with the two previous productions and that is the clear turn towards less pop 80's sounds and therefore directed towards an electronic space prog that leads us to accept a new genre and musical genre called "Cosmo Domine", so defined years ago by another experimental avant garde combo called Father Hollow Graham, precisely for the compositional concept and the visionary and cosmic moods!
YES, the incorporeal spirit of TJ Newton, the man who fell to earth, hovers. Those who have seen the 1976 film by Nicolas Roeg understand where the moniker used by our musicians comes from, that if they are not aliens, at least they are strange. Also consider that on the covers the name of the band is written with indecipherable characters.

Two well-known artists and producers from the European music scene are hiding behind this artistic project, but they do not want to be known too much and want to maintain an aura of mystery for this reason we find Cosmo Saint at all vocals and the multi-instrumentalist Paul Electron also called the Traslator!
The song "Now last time" has an atmosphere full of phatos with the voice of Cosmo Saint inspired, charismatic and proponent of melodies that put themselves in orbit and turn in our heads seriously risking to subjugate our mind!
In this regard, the B side of the single gives us a song sung in Italian which is titled "Il traduttore" and this projects us towards the intergalactic journey of this human being who has the extraordinary and unique ability to be able to understand and translate all languages intelligent creatures of the universe!

What to say? the concept becomes more and more intriguing and slowly reveals all the protagonists of this cosmic saga!
Now we wait with some trepidation the next moves of the PC-Newton because it is interesting to listen to the evolution of their repertoire and musical genre!

Lola wrote on the social network "Music is the thing that makes me feel the most powerful and yet the most vulnerable at the same time. Today marks the beginning of me officially sharing my story and my vision through song. When I was younger, I didn’t realize what it took to get your creativity out into the world; and boy this has been a long journey up until this point. However, today feels like the seed is rising up from the earth and turning into a flower— and I am so ready for a whole garden to bloom.

Thank you all so much for the support. It would mean the world if you reposted or followed me on Spotify. It really does take fans, friends, and family support to make art prevail. Much love "

THE WONDER YEARS TO RELEASE "BURST AND DECAY (VOLUME II)" ON FEBRUARY 14TH
NEW SINGLE "WE LOOK LIKE LIGHTNING" STREAMING TODAY



If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that The Wonder Years put their entire souls into each body of work they release. Nearly three years ago, some of their most popular songs like “There, There” and “Don’t Let Me Cave In” were taken to crushing new heights on the first edition of the groundbreaking Philly band’s first acoustic EP, "Burst & Decay". And they were only just getting started.

Produced and engineered by Ace Enders (The Early November), "Burst & Decay (Volume II)", out February 14 on Hopeless Records, truly takes this stripped-back TWY experience to an entirely new level. The new EP features stunning string arrangements from Little Kruta String Quartet and guest vocals on “We Look Like Lightning” from Alex Maniak of the band Shortly, streaming everywhere today.

“On the first 'Burst & Decay EP', we went in with a rough idea of re-envisioning a few old songs and walked out of the studio in love with the process. We were able to breathe new life into songs that had become neglected over the years and give new dimensions to ones that we'd played endlessly” vocalist Dan Campbell explains.

“This time, we went in knowing exactly what we wanted to do––build new versions of old songs that subvert expectations but remain familiar. We stretched our limits, we got to work with the insanely talented Little Kruta String Quartet, we had a legitimately good time in the studio and we made something we're very excited to share with you".



Pre-orders for "Burst & Decay (Volume II)" Are Available Here!

Burst & Decay (Volume II) Track Listing

Cover art-Curtis L. Smith and Aldo Nova




Hey Ladi Dadi is the first track on Aldo Nova's Rock Opera "The Life and Times of Eddie Gage" which centers around the life of a young musical prodigy called Eddie Gage whose mysterious beginnings start when he was left on the doorstep of a couple called Ann and Bernie Gage by a secret order called Fratrum in Unum and from that moment on his life is a constant battle between Light and Darkness.
This song is by one of the main protagonists of the Opera, a man called Andy Christos, the president of the record company who makes Eddie sign his first contract, one he'll regret. Andy has a bigger, darker dream and if you read the lyrics below you'll get a taste of his aspirations and what his real intentions are.
