Darkhold Wasp Cover Artwork from Anthony Blackwood, Marvel Entertainment for use by 360 Magazine

MADNESS IS UNLEASHED – DARKHOLD: WASP × DARKHOLD: BLACK BOLT

The madness of the Darkhold will be unleashed on the Marvel Universe this fall beginning in DARKHOLD ALPHA #1! In this highly anticipated mystical saga, five heroes—IRON MAN, BLADE, WASP, BLACK BOLT, and SPIDER-MAN—will be recruited by Scarlet Witch to travel to Chthon’s dimension to stop him before he can invade Earth. But in order to survive there, each hero must first read from the Darkhold and let themselves be driven insane, leading to twisted new versions of themselves! These mind-melting adventures will unfold over a series of exciting character-focused one-shots including November’s DARKHOLD: WASP and DARKHOLD: BLACK BOLT!

Renowned colorist and writer Jordie Bellaire makes her Marvel Comics writing debut alongside rising star artist Claire Roe for a story that will make you shrink in fear in DARKHOLD: WASP! Scarlet Witch chose Janet Van Dyne for her ingenuity and strength, will she prove to be the lynchpin in the coming battle against Chthon or will she be consumed by darkness? After reading the Darkhold, Wasp’s entire life is subject to question but she has the power to reclaim her story…and fight back.

Critically acclaimed writer Mark Russell teams up with sensational artist David Cutler to brings you a scream-worthy story that will break an empire in DARKHOLD: BLACK BOLT! Black Bolt’s mighty voice is his greatest gift…and since childhood, it has been his greatest curse. Black Bolt thought he was signing up for a battle befitting a king but after reading from the Darkhold, he’ll discover the true battlefield will be his own mind.

“As a writer, it’s a joy to get to write a character who spends even more time inside their own head than you do,” Russell said. “So Black Bolt is a writer’s dream character and when I heard which other creators were involved with the series, I was totally on board, like someone who’d unwittingly bought a house in a really great neighborhood.”

Check out the covers for DARKHOLD: WASP and DARKHOLD: BLACK BOLT as well as Cian Tormey’s new “defiled designs” and enter the Darkhold if you dare when this strange and terrifying saga begins in September! For more information, visit Marvel.

Home in this World: Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl Ballads

LEE ANN WOMACK DEBUTS DUSTY OLD DUST WOODY GUTHRIE COVER TO APPEAR ON HOME IN THIS WORLD: WOODY GUTHRIE’S DUST BOWL BALLADS

REIMAGINED ALBUM ARRIVES SEPTEMBER 10TH VIA ELEKTRA RECORDS

CURATED BY GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING MUSIC SUPERVISOR AND PRODUCER RANDALL POSTER

ALBUM FEATURES CROSS-GENRE COLLECTIVE OF ARTISTS INCLUDING

GRAMMY Award-WINNERS LEE ANN WOMACK AND JOHN PAUL WHITE, WAXAHATCHEE, CHRIS THILE, COLTER WALL AND MORE

GRAMMY Award-winning vocal powerhouse Lee Ann Womack has debuted a cover of Woody Guthrie’s Dusty Old Dust alongside an official lyric video. The track arrives ahead of Home In This Word: Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl Ballads, a reimagined version of American folk icon Woody Guthrie’s groundbreaking 1940 album, Dust Bowl Ballads. Curated by GRAMMY Award-winning music supervisor and producer Randall Poster [Skyfall, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Boardwalk Empire], Home In This World arrives Friday, September 10th via Elektra Records and is available for preorder now with the endorsement of the Woody Guthrie Estate.

Womack commented on the release, ‘Dusty Old Dust’ is such a great example of how a magical songwriter’s timeless lyrics can bring life to conditions that are hard for us to imagine and keep history alive.

The album was announced earlier this summer via Rolling Stone and heralded by The Secret Sisters’ rendition of Dust Cain’t Kill Me, followed by Waxahatchee’s take on Talking Dust Bowl Blues. Cited as one of the first concept albums ever, Dust Bowl Ballads’ 14 tracks ring true nearly four generations later as America faces a different kind of depression and looming clduimate crisis. Now celebrating its 81st anniversary, the record has been reimagined for a new era by a cross-genre collective of artists. Poster has assembled an all-star cast of everyone from GRAMMY Award winners Lee Ann Womack and John Paul White to grunge poet laureate Mark Lanegan and rising country and Americana star Lillie Mae, acclaimed husband-and-wife folk duo Shovels & Rope, virtuosic mandolinist Chris Thile, celebrated Canadian cowboy Colter Wall, bluegrass phenomenon Watkins Family Hour, and indie stalwarts Waxahatchee.

Sharing aligned missions, Home In This World will be released in partnership with Kiss The Ground, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to awaken people to the possibilities of regenerative agriculture and inspire participation in this movement through media, communications, education, immersive programming, and advocacy.

ABOUT DUST BOWL BALLADS:

Eighty-one years ago, Woody Guthrie spoke to the pain and hopelessness of the American farmer living in a depressed America by telling their stories in words meant for them. His groundbreaking 1940 album, Dust Bowl Ballads, wove together autobiographical and fictional vignettes of the Dust Bowl during The Great Depression. On his first commercial recording and most definitive, he spoke from the heart about his own experiences, stepped into the shoes of Tom Joad from John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, and traced the journey of thousands out of the Midwest and Southern Great Plains to California under the promise of a better life.

ABOUT KISS THE GROUND:

Kiss the Ground is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to awaken people to the possibilities of regeneration and inspire participation in this movement through media, communications, education, workshops, immersive programming, and advocacy. Since 2013, Kiss the Ground has created societal awareness around the extraordinary potential of healthy soil, educating and activating millions around regeneration.

HARD ROCK TRIO THE WARNING NEW SINGLE – EVOLVE

As they continue racking up fans, followers, and acclaim from the media and music icons alike, the Monterrey Mexico hard rock sister trio The Warning have emerged to unveil “EVOLVE,” their new single released via LAVA/Republic Records.

“We wrote ‘EVOLVE’ about humanity’s dangerous obsession with evolving,” the band said. “And how sometimes that evolution leads us to slowly leave our humanity behind. Is this dehumanizing evolution right or wrong?”

Produced by the legendary David Beneath (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin), “Evolve” is a musical journey led by Daniela Daniela “Dany” [guitar, lead vocals, piano], Paulina “Pau” [drums, vocals, piano], and Alejandra “Ale” Villarreal [bass, piano, backing vocals]. Dany’s vocals simmer with intensity, building tension before exploding into a chorus that unleashes the full force of the energy the sisters bring to every performance. With its signature changes and transformational truth-telling, “EVOLVE” is a track that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats throughout the entire sonic ride. The video, recorded with 16 iPhones and a drone, is a dangerous, fast-paced trip that visually amplifies the anxiety of “EVOLVE” in stunning fashion.

“EVOLVE” comes hot on the heels of the release of their Lava Records debut single, “CHOKE,” for which the band took part in a streamed event/interview with legendary rock tastemaker Matt Pinfield. “CHOKE” cracked over a million streams right out of the gate, drawing acclaim from Loudwire, Rolling Stone Mexico, and Billboard Argentina. Adding to the praise, Pau was called out by the band’s musical peers Olivia Rodrigo and WILLOW for her stunning drum covers of their songs “brutal” and “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l” on TikTok.

Coming soon: the band has been tapped by Metallica for a cover of “Enter Sandman,” the track that first sent the trio into viral music stardom. The single will be featured on The Metallica Blacklist album, the 30-year anniversary reissue of Metallica’s iconic self-titled 5th album, also known as The Black Album. The reissue is set for release on September 10. In addition, fans will be able to catch The Warning on the road as they perform at the Welcome To Rockville Festival, open for the Foo Fighters in front of a 60,000-person crowd at Mexico City’s Foro Sol, and at a two-night sold-out run at the Troubadour in January 2022.

Stay tuned for more music and news to come as The Warning continues to surge to the forefront of hard rock!

About The Warning

The Warning infuse rock music with a much-needed shot of adrenaline. The Monterrey, Mexico trio of sisters—Daniela “Dany” [guitar, lead vocals, piano], Paulina “Pau” [drums, vocals, piano], and Alejandra “Ale” Villarreal [bass, piano, backing vocals]—charge forward with head-spinning riffs, unpredictable rhythms, stadium-size beats, and skyscraping vocals. They stand out as the rare presence equally at home on network television and on stage at Heaven & Hell Festival. If anybody can usher rock’s comeback along, it’s these three ladies. After exploding online with one viral moment after another, The Warning parlayed this momentum into a series of independent releases, including Escape the Mind EP [2015], XXI Century Blood [2017], and Queen of the Murder Scene [2019]. They graced a stacked bill at Mother of All Rock Festival as the only Mexican band and opened up two sold out Monterrey shows for The Killers and for Def Leppard in Mexico City and Guadalajara. After quietly amassing over 120 million YouTube views and 10 million streams, they surge to the forefront of hard rock with a series of new music being released on LAVA Records in 2021.

Mary McGuinness "Gonna Feel It Again" cover from Mackenzie Breeden, Jay Wilson, for use by 360 Magazine

Mary McGuinness New Single – Gonna Feel It Again

Today singer/songwriter Mary McGuinness released a new song titled, “Gonna Feel It Again” accompanied by a visualizer. Press here to watch. When McGuinness sings that “better days are coming” in “Gonna Feel It Again,” the first post-pandemic track among five new songs she plans on releasing through the end of the year, her soaring vocals cut straight to the heart, assuring us everything is going to be alright.

After releasing her album Prodigal last year (press here to listen) followed by stand-alone covers of Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler” and Bread’s “If” (press here to listen to both) when the lockdown hit, McGuiness returned to the studio, this time with producer Joel Shearer (Dido, Annie Lennox, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Joe Cocker, Damien Rice, Michael Buble, Sarah McLachlan).

“Singing and songwriting is very healing for me,” McGuinness says. “I don’t know if I’d be here without music. Thankfully, I’ve always had that to keep me somewhat on the rails.”

McGuinness’ voice is a force of nature, at once combining Joni Mitchell’s multi-octave range, the warmth and heart of Karen Carpenter and the earthy purity of Emmylou Harris. Her vocals and music have been praised on DittyTV, The Bluegrass Situation, and Americana Highways which said, “an exhilarating vocal – sprung from and old-word seed.”

Born in Fort Hood, TX, to an Irish-Scottish Green Beret Father, and Korean Mother, McGuinness spent time in Korea and Texas, surviving a harrowing childhood, and grew up with her Grandparents in Long Island, NY. A high school music teacher took McGuinness under her wing and encouraged her to pursue singing. She studied classical voice at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music – which she put herself through with commercials, waitressing, and a stint on Broadway.

McGuinness has toured through the US and supported the likes of Train, Kenny Loggins, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Shawn Colvin, Counting Crows, and Gavin DeGraw. She has written chart topping singles on Billboard and released four studio albums under another project.

These upcoming new songs shine a light on her influences, everyone from The Eagles, Bill Withers, Fleetwood Mac, and Linda Ronstadt to Cat Stevens, Willie Nelson and The Beatles. Her eclectic musical tastes show in her cover material, which can range from Peter Gabriel (“Washing of the Water”) – (Press here to watch the video directed by McGuinness herself) to Kris Kristofferson (“Please Don’t Tell Me How the Story Ends”).

““Gonna Feel It Again” is what I told myself during the lockdown,” she says. “I just kept reminding myself, life is a cycle. Sometimes you have to push through the dark times, to get to the light on the other side. The good times always come back around. It’s how we choose to look through the lens, always looking for the beauty in the people and world around us. I did a lot of soul searching and introspection over the past year like a lot of people. I feel like I grew a great deal. And I’m really grateful for the positive things that came out of this time.”

Mary McGuinness’ music and songs being at the top of that list.

The Heavy Hours Announces Debut EP, Wildfire

The Heavy Hours releases cover of Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now, building anticipation for their debut EP which will be released August 3.

Hitting a mid-1970s pop-rock sweet spot, this fab debut from Cincinnati newcomers was produced by Simone Felice and co-written with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. The band more than lives up to such illustrious company.” – The Times of London

“Unbelievably catchy lines and effortlessly organic arrangement.” – American Songwriter

The Heavy Hours, from Cincinnati, OH, announced the August 3 release date of their debut EP, Wildfire. The band also shares their cover version of Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now. Both the EP and song were produced by Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Jade Bird, Matt Maeson) and produced and mixed by David Baron. Don’t Start Now, released through BMG, is available for streaming and download. 

The band said about the cover song, “Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now is the essence of pop music production; a cacophony of synthesizers, elaborate and squishy bass lines, and outer-space dipped vocals… however, it all comes down to the vocal melody, which – just STICKS in your brain. We’ve always worked at and wanted to re-imagine a pop anthem like this in our own production style – using acoustic guitars, upright pianos, shakers, and other analog technology. We’re really excited to release our cut of the tune to see if listeners enjoy our version just as much as Dua Lipa’s.”

The cover of Don’t Stop Now is not included on the Wildfire EP, which contains five original songs from the band and includes the previously released song Don’t Walk Away which was co-written with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.

On top of the music announcement, the band is pleased to announce some tour dates, starting with an EP release day show at Madison Live! in Covington, KY, across the river from their hometown in Cincinnati.

Adopting the band’s name from a line in William Butler Yeats’ Autobiographies, The Heavy Hours emerged, eager to explore a long-standing fascination with time-honored songwriting and production. Their music soon made its way to Dan Auerbach, who invited his fellow Ohioans to visit his Easy Eye Sound headquarters in Nashville for a few days of collaborative songwriting. The sessions were both productive and a revelation, inspiring the band to strip away some of their previous artifice in order to touch a more universal chord. Armed with a cache of new songs and innumerable ideas, The Heavy Hours traveled to rural Catskills in New York state, to record under the aegis of producer Simone Felice. The winter sessions proved incredibly fruitful, yielding a collection of distinctive new music that serves as an undeniable milestone on The Heavy Hours’ ongoing creative journey.

It’s the first single from his Deep Covers 187 mixtape releasing on July 14th. You can listen to the new cover HERE. You can watch the accompanying music video HERE.

C.S. Armstrong brings new life to “Limit To Your Love” which was originally recorded by James Blake and Feist. In his signature rework of the song, Armstrong injects the record with unlimited soul. In the cinematic music video he takes inspiration from the classic film Queen and Slim, continuously reinventing beautiful art with his own unique fashion.

Carving out his niche with cover songs, C.S. Armstrong’s latest renditions include Gnarls Barkely’s “Crazy,” Summer Walker’s “Session 32” and Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo.” Additionally, the modern-day bluesman recently teamed up with none other than Black Thought of The Roots for “Welcome To America” from the Judas and the Black Messiah Soundtrack. Attracting critical praise, The New York Times highlighted Armstrong’s “gritty vocal choruses.”

All of this follows the release of “Own Two” featuring Jay Rock which will be included on his forthcoming major label debut album. Be on the lookout for more from C.S. Armstrong soon.

Born to a single mother in the service with a preacher grandma in his corner, C.S. Armstrong traveled an unbelievable road one step at a time. At 10-years-old, he preached in church as an ordained minister. At 16-years-old, he earned respect in the streets with his fists. At 18-years-old, he enlisted in the military to serve his country. Eight years later, he rolled into New York and lent his voice to one hip-hop banger after another. His instantly recognizable vocals shined on Statik Selektah’s “In The Wind” [feat. Joey Bada$$ & Big K.R.I.T] and Bun B, Prodigy, and Remy Bank’s “Where’s Your Leader.” His voice also coursed through Action Bronson’s tastemaker-approved Billboard Top 200 chart-topping Mr. Wonderful, in addition to joining the star on the road. Settling in Southern California, he powered Book’s “Last Man Standing” for the official Call of Duty: WWII trailer and dropped a pair of critically acclaimed independent projects, namely Truth Be Told [2019] and The Blue Tape [2020]. His voice echoed on Black Thought’s “We Could Be Good (United)” [feat. C.S. Armstrong & OSHUN] from the critical favorite Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cain & Able. Along the way, Dr. Dre became his “uncle,” Republic Records signed him, and he distilled gospel, blues, hip-hop, and rock into a sound as intoxicating and biting as aged whisky. Streamed millions of times and championed by BillboardA COLORS SHOW, and more, OnesToWatch claimed, “The music is something to grow old with.” Now, he tells the story with no filter on a series of singles for Republic Records.
