JunkBunny – Another Summer Song

Upcoming Houston alt rock trio JunkBunny has released the official video for their brand new single, “Another Summer Song-” watch it here!

On making the video, JunkBunny says, We had one camera, a couple friends and a whole lot of time on our hands to make a music video for our new track ‘Another Summer Song.’ We wanted to portray what Summer feels and looks like to us.”

“On ‘Another Summer Song,’ JunkBunny offers a modern take on the spirit and attitude of nineties alternative rock with a hyper-charged energy of their own,” a press release reads. Alt Press praises the song as “the perfect summer anthem,” saying “the trio’s track boasts resonating harmonies and a memorable chorus.”

“Another Summer Song” is the follow up to JunkBunny’s debut EP Junk Rock and breakout single “Sedona” released last fall after opening for ZZ Top, The Struts and even Jon Bon Jovi. The EP was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, P.O.D.). The band recently debuted their live Junk Rock sessions shot from home—watch here.

Chris Cornell: Grammy Winner’s Deluxe Release

CHRIS CORNELL 2020 GRAMMY® AWARD WINNER FOR BEST RECORDING PACKAGE

INCLUDES 2019 GRAMMY® WINNING TRACK “WHEN BAD DOES GOOD”

Chris Cornell, the 17-track self-titled 2LP, was recognized by the Recording Academy and the wider industry with a GRAMMY® Award for Best Recording Packaging at the 2020 ceremonies.  This award is the second GRAMMY® Award tied to this release, the first being in 2019 for Best Rock Performance for the previously unreleased track, “When Bad Does Good.”

Chris Cornell commemorates his life and legacy not only as a singer, but as a poet and one of the most prolific writers and greatest voices of the modern rock era. Vicky Cornell wanted to create a special album for the fans that would include a selection of Chris’ expansive career, showcasing the breadth of his work and contribution to music history with selections culled from the deep catalogs of his three influential bands— Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave— as well as songs from his solo career. She turned to producer Brendan O’Brien, who was a trusted partner to Cornell over the years, and Jeff Ament who created the packaging for Chris Cornell, now a 2020 GRAMMY® winner.

“I am grateful to Jeff Ament and everyone who helped create such a beautiful work of art from beginning to end, in loving memory and in tribute to Chris – he would be so proud!” said Vicky Cornell. “And a huge thanks to all the fans who’s love and support have carried Chris’s legacy forward. Our children and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping his memory alive. Chris Cornell Forever!”

“When Bad Does Good,” was produced, recorded, and mixed by Cornell, and was found in his personal recordings archive. The track was a favorite of his and it wasn’t until friend Josh Brolin reminded Vicky of the unreleased song that she decided to share it with his fans. Cornell won Best Rock Performance posthumously at the 61st GRAMMY Awards for “When Bad Does Good.” 

Watch Chris’s 12-year-old son, Christopher pay tribute to his dad in the official video for “When Bad Does Good,” here.

Chris Cornell is available as the GRAMMY® Award Winning 2LP, in addition to the Deluxe Edition 4CD, 1 CD and Digital versions, plus the limited-edition color vinyl Super Deluxe LP box set, re-released in 2019 due to overwhelming demand for the 2018 pressing of the original collection. The box set has been re-released by Cornell’s wife, Vicky Cornell on behalf of The Chris Cornell Estate through UMe, and is available exclusively via the Chris Cornell official store.

The Super Deluxe 4CD, 1DVD, and 180-gram 7LP limited-edition color vinyl box set holds 88 tracks — 64 songs plus 24 videos. Also included in the Super Deluxe box are a 66-page hardcover photo book wrapped in linen with a red foil signature cover, three artist lithos, three photochromatic lithos inspired by Cornell’s lyrical fascination about the sun (images are brought to life by holding under direct sunlight), a turntable mat, a microfiber vinyl cleaning cloth, and a 36×48-inch wall poster.

WELSHLY ARMS “INDESTRUCTIBLE”

Cleveland based, blues and gospel influenced Alternative band, Welshly Arms debuts their latest song, “Indestructible,” today—listen and share here. The track premiered on Ones To Watch, who says, “prepare yourself for robust guitar strings and a pop-tinged chorus that thrives off of a funkified shuffle.”

Frontman Sam Getz explains the meaning behind “Indestructible,” saying “‘Indestructible’ is about being in love with someone that’s out of your league. You know they’ll never break down and fall for you, but in a way, that’s what makes you want them even more.”

“Indestructible” follows Welshly Arm’s previously released song “Sanctuary,” and both are taken from the band’s highly anticipated debut album, No Place Is Home, which is set for release on May 25th. See the full No Place Is Home tracklist below. Pre-order No Place Is Home here.

YUNGBLUD × TIN PAN BOY

UK ARTIST YUNGBLUD SHARES VIDEO FOR “TIN PAN BOY” TODAY

WATCH IT HERE

NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES SET FOR SPRING

UK recording artist YUNGBLUD shares the video for “TIN PAN BOY” today. Watch it HERE. The song is available HERE via Locomotion/Geffen Records.

Self-directed by Yungblud, the video for “Tin Pan Boy” is, in his own words: “my opportunity to create a visualization of the shit I saw in my head when I wrote the song. I wanted to show the high energy, angry, yet slightly mad side of my personality. It’s the first time I’ve directed anything and I had such an insane time. It was amazing to watch a mental idea I had come to life.”

The massive redevelopment of Denmark Street in London’s Soho neighborhood and the subsequent eviction of independent businesses inspired the song.

Emerging from the gritty north of England 19-year-old YUNGBLUD brings to the stage an explosion of raw energy and thought-provoking lyrics. He has created his own blend of alternative rock: poetry, guitar-hooks and break-beats with a fierce determination to make a dent in pop-culture.

THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS × BTS DOCUMENTARY

The All American Rejects Release the Behind-The-Scenes Documentary For Their Powerful Short Film “Sweat” Via Huffington Post Today

The multi-platinum selling rock band, The All American Rejects, recently released their 2 song EP Sweat alongside a powerful 11-minute short film that ties both tracks together called “Sweat”. Today, the behind-the-scenes documentary, entitled “Rejected,” directed by Emmy Award, winning producer, director, Jason Bergh is released via Huffington Post, click HERE to view. The two tracks on the EP, Sweat and Close Your Eyes mark the long-awaited return from one of Alternative rock’s most successful hit makers of the last 15 years and display a new chapter in the band’s history.

When the The All-American Rejects embarked on their recent musical release, “Sweat,”they called on director Jason Bergh to document their most intimate visual exploration to date for the short documentary, “Rejected.” Bergh, who has worked with frontman Tyson since 2005, jumped headfirst into an ambitious behind-the-scenes journey that he hoped would reveal a completely new dimension of the band. As soon as Tyson sent over the new record, I was hooked. Tyson’s boundless creative energy is nothing short of infectious.Over the course of 5 days and with unlimited access, Bergh crafted a stirring cinematic poem that reflects the vision and creativity for which the band has become known over the last 18 years.

Known for stadium-size sing-alongs steeped in pop panache and rock n roll danger, cheeky wit, and raucous concerts that border on religious experiences, The All-American Rejects confidently waltz against the grain. Their 2017 2-song EP Sweat, and the upcoming fifth full-length album, continue a near two-decade tradition of ballsy, brash, and bold pop rock anthems.
