RIVAL SONS LAUNCHES SACRED TONGUE RECORDINGS

BAND REGAINS OWNERSHIP OF EARLY RELEASES

SET TO RE-RELEASE REMASTERED DEBUT LP BEFORE THE FIRE & SELF-TITLED EP ON LIMITED-EDITION VINYL ON MARCH 26TH VIA THIRTY TIGERS

Two time GRAMMY-nominated group Rival Sons have announced the launch of their very own label, Sacred Tongue Recordings, with distribution through Thirty Tigers. The band recently regained the master rights to several of their early releases and will reintroduce them to the world by first remastering their independent full-length debut LP, Before the Fire [2009], and self-titled EP Rival Sons [2010], on all DSPS, CD, and Vinyl for the first time on March 26th. Limited-edition vinyl variants are available for pre-order at their website. They’ve printed up an exclusive run of 1000 copies of both Before the Fire and Rival SonsBefore the Fire will come in an orange splatter variant, while the EP is available in a clear with gold splatter variant. There will also be indie retailer exclusive color-ways of each release in translucent orange and crystal clear, respectively.

Regarding Sacred Tongue Recordings, the band commented, “We’ve talked about creating our own record label from the very beginning. It’s about creating a good home for our back catalogue as the Rival Sons community continues to grow together worldwide. The band has always maintained a stance of independence and sole custody of our early works was the long game. Introducing SACRED TONGUE RECORDINGS, a RIVAL SONS record label.”

By looking back, Rival Sons also leap forward again as they continue working on more music and the follow-up to 2019’s FERAL ROOTS.

Feral Roots not only garnered 2020 GRAMMY Award nomination in the category of “Best Rock Album,” but also yielded a GRAMMY nomination for “Best Rock Performance” for the top 10 rock track, “Too Bad,” as well as the #1 rock radio single, “Do Your Worst.” Produced by multiple GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, Rival Sons’ FERAL ROOTS is available now on all streaming platforms.

Stay tuned for more from Rival Sons and Sacred Tongue Recordings very soon.

About Rival Sons:

Since their emergence in 2009, Rival Sons have quietly reignited and recharged rock ‘n’ roll with towering vocals, uncompromising riffs, and thunderous grooves. Following the independent release of their full-length debut Before The Fire, they were handpicked to perform alongside everyone from AC/DC to Black Sabbath. Working with longtime producer Dave Cobb, the band delivered a series of critically acclaimed albums Pressure & Time [2011], Head Down [2012], Great Western Valkyrie [2014], and Hollow Bones [2016] as they headlined sold out shows on multiple continents. 2019’s FERAL ROOTS broke new ground for the band. “Do Your Worst” shot to #1 on Rock Radio as their first chart-topper at the format. It also scored 40 million-plus streams and counting. They delivered an electrifying performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden and earned acclaim from BillboardRolling Stone, and many more. FERAL ROOTS also gathered a 2020 GRAMMY Award nomination for “Best Rock Album,” while the single “Too Bad” notched a nomination for “Best Rock Performance.” 2021 saw Rival Sons present their own label Sacred Tongue Recordings distributed by Thirty Tigers. Through and through, they embody everything a modern rock band should be and so much more.

Ivory Layne – Confetti

Rising Nashville-based singer songwriter Ivory Layne releases her debut EP ‘Confetti’ today, alongside focus track ‘Lonely Hearts’.

A collection of powerfully emotive songs that shows the breadth of and scope of Layne’s talents, the ‘Confetti’ EP includes critically acclaimed singles ‘December’, a surging rush of modern day soul pop, and Layne’s rousing feminist anthem ‘God Save The Queens’.

Meanwhile, the heart-crushing title track outlines just why Billboard tipped her to become “the new Adele”, while ‘Lonely Hearts’ is a sublime combination of classic songwriting and widescreen production that places her in the sphere of contemporary pop polymaths like Maggie Rogers.

Produced by Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway aka The Barn Productions (Lewis Capaldi, Gabrielle Aplin, Dean Lewis) Jimmy Robbins (Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert) and Ivory herself, the Confetti EP is Ivory’s first UK release since signing with Justin Timberlake’s development company Villa 40 and showcases the unique voice and masterful songwriting that caused Timberlake to sit up and take notice of Ivory’s talents.

Layne says‘In a world constantly asking “what do you believe?”, I see the Confetti EP as my answer. It’s been my musical collection of lessons learned over the last seven years, touching on themes of personal growth, heartbreak, love, mental health, and letting go. I began this EP having barely co-written, never been in a relationship, still new to Nashville, and with one academic trip abroad under my belt. I finished writing it last year in London, having visited so many times it felt like home, crafting songs about dates gone wrong for the right reasons and the beauty found in every season when you take the time to look. I’m still writing as I’m living, it’s the nature of art itself, but the Confetti EP will always hold a special place as the diary of my early twenties, where I’ve been and where I want to go.” 

Tipped for stardom by the likes of Billboard, V Magazine and Live Nation’s Ones To Watch, Layne’s remarkable talent has garnered critical acclaim as well as attracting a wealth of stellar collaborators.

In just a few years, she’s worked with Grammy award-winning producer Ed Cash (Dolly Parton, Amy Grant) on her debut EP; collaborated with Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness and Needtobreathe; written for other artists alongside co-writes with some of Nashville’s finest including Jimmy Robbins, Shane McAnally and Lori McKenna. Layne’s sharpness in the writer’s room has also landed her two global ad campaigns, one for prestigious jewellery house Swarovski and another for cable giant, HBO.

The Confetti EP is primed to cement Layne’s reputation as one of the world’s finest, rising female talents.

Sam Johnson – Are We There Yet?

Following on from the success of his single ‘Changes’, which landed in Spotify editorial playlists such as ‘Pop Brandneu’, ‘Easy’, ‘Pop Relax’ and ‘New Pop UK’, was played on Apple Music’s Radio Show ‘New Music Daily Deutschland mit Aisha’, and highlighted in Billboard’s 10 Cool Pop Songs feature, British singer and songwriter Sam Johnson now releases his brand new EP ‘Are We There Yet?’ alongside the powerful new single ‘Shoulder To Cry On’.

Featuring the previously shared cuts ‘Nineteen’, ‘Peter Pan’, ‘Changes’, and ‘The Kids Are Alright’, the new five-track collection sees the artist embark on one of his most ambitious and euphoric projects yet. With a consistent theme of bold and uplifting compositions, matching his own soaring aesthetic, ‘Are We There Yet?’ marks a pivotal moment in both his personal and professional life.

Speaking about his new EP, he said, “‘Are We There Yet?’ marks a definitive farewell to my childhood on both a personal and musical level for me. It’s an EP that maps my recollection of a time gone by that I miss greatly and contemplate often. Written with both optimistic intention and wistful yearning, it is a body of work that sways in torrents of emotion that even I struggle to define or understand. On a musical level, it’s been a part of my growth, but on a personal level, it’s a much-needed bit of closure to a beloved time in my life that I need to leave behind in order to move forward. Are we there yet? I don’t think so, not just yet, but I think I’m more at peace with the journey now.” 

The previously unheard new offering ‘Shoulder To Cry On’ sees Sam in a more reflective light throughout. While the majority of his songs pay tribute to moments in his life, this new release sees him target a more heartfelt emotion as he is reminded how such a small event can affect the rest of your life.

Adding about ‘Shoulder To Cry On’, “I wrote this for someone I was dating a while ago. It didn’t last very long, but it was nice whilst it did. It was the usual situation of someone from the past affecting the present. She had a lot of walls and didn’t want to get hurt again. I suppose the chorus’s defining lyric ‘When all you’ve ever known, has left you on your own, I’ll be your shoulder to cry on’ was an attempt to give her some comfort that I wouldn’t do the same. I don’t think it worked very well.”

EP tracklist:

  1. Peter Pan
  2. Nineteen
  3. Changes
  4. Shoulder To Cry On
  5. The Kids Are All Alright

A driven and relentlessly ambitious artist, Sam Johnson’s story also owes a debt to chance. Fate dealt him an unusual card when Kevin Shields – My Bloody Valentine auteur – crossed his path, taking the fledgling talent into the studio for the very first time. “That was a real moment for me… that developed my backbone. It made me want to have that element of legacy. And he made me realise that it could be done.”

A country boy lost in the big city, Sam’s music has taken him from a rural setting to the London metropolis, but he’s driven by an extraordinary sense of purpose. ‘Are We There Yet?’ is a tightly bound EP, one where each passage speaks to the next. Overseen by My Riot at RAK Studios, the production is left deliberately raw, almost unfinished, so that the songs “could breathe, without over-cluttering it too much”.

Carly Rose – Change My Mind

VIDEO OUT ON DECEMBER 16TH

“A rare instance of credibly modern pop… an impressive batch of songs teeming with hooks and personality.” Los Angeles Times

New York-raised, Los Angeles-based rising indie-pop songstress Carly Rose drops her provocative next single, Change My Mind. The upbeat alt-pop anthem balances the complexities of adolescence with a celebratory energy, reminding listeners that life is messy but fun. Click HERE to listen.

Carly added about the track, “Change My Mind is about when you make the hard realization that there are certain things about yourself that you just cannot seem to shake as hard as you might try. Nobody is perfect, and this song explores the most dysfunctional and destructive parts of who I am in the best way I know how–bitter sarcasm and self-deprecation.”

Change My Mind follows the release of Carly’s successful debut EP WILD, which was hailed as “empowering” and “a compelling EP with strong emotions and Lana Del Rey vibes,” and was featured on playlists such as Spotify’s New Music Friday and Fresh & Chill.

At just 13 years old, Carly rose to fame on the X Factor’s second season, placing 2nd on the show…the youngest finalist in the show’s history. With a recording contract at her fingertips, she chose to take a step back from the industry, not wanting to become the typical reality TV-manufactured instant pop star.

The years of incubation have paid off as Carly emerges as one of the most refreshing and fully formed young artists – wise beyond her years, with an unexpected soul in her voice that cuts right through an oversaturated insta-pop music industry. Writing all of her own songs, Carly offers commentary on weighty topics such as drug addiction and lost youth yet packages it in a way that is accessible to a wide range of listeners. Listen once and you might hear a fun song to jam to. Listen deeper and you could find yourself contemplating some of life’s most topical and challenging issues.

Livingston – Superkid

Eighteen-year-old artist Livingston has debuted new single “Superkid,” the first taste of music from his upcoming EP An Unlikely Origin Story, slated for release in 2021. The track is accompanied by a powerful visual written and directed by Livingston himself, which finds the artist inhabiting multiple characters who influenced the artist throughout his life. “Superkid” is available now on all streaming platforms, with the video streaming now on Livingston’s official YouTube channel.

Livingston commented on the track, “‘Superkid’ is a song for anyone going through a massive change of scenery it’s a cautionary tale to remember that running away from your problems won’t do away with your insecurity, and a reminder that you never need to try and change who you truly are to blend in with the crowd.”

Earlier this summer, the self-taught singer, songwriter, producer and engineer shared his debut EP Lighthouse, praised as “uplifting and inspiring” by PopularTV and earning Livingston the title of “pop star in the making” from Ones To Watch. The eight-track collection is available now at all DSPs via Elektra Records and features standout track “Carnival” in addition to singles “Home,” “Say The Word,” and “Fairytale” the latter of which was shared by Billboard alongside the artist’s Elektra Records signing announcement. In less than six months, Livingston has racked up over 20 million streams on DSPs, one million+ followers on Tik Tok including 60 million channel views and has quickly established himself as an artist on the rise.

Growing up in Denton, Texas, Livingston was faced with bullying, anxiety and relentless self-doubt. Throughout his childhood, he struggled to fit in and faced a constant battle to find his place in the world ߝ finally finding the connection and understanding he sought when he poured his feelings of loneliness, isolation and inadequacy into song. Drawing inspiration for his “orchestral cinematic pop” from a wide range of artists in pop, hip hop and film scores, Livingston combines instantly memorable melodies with sweeping orchestral compositions and is first and foremost driven by honest storytelling.

Bastille – Goosebumps EP

Rounding out a prolific year, Bastille surprises fans with their new Goosebumps EP via Republic Records—listen HERE.

The EP arrives with their new single and title track “Goosebumps” feat. Kenny Beats, which was written and recorded last year in New York and in their London studio, One Eyed Jack’s. To celebrate its arrival, the band also shares the official video for the new song. Helmed by frequent collaborator and London-based British/Iranian director Reza Dolatabadi, the visual unfolds as a surrealist dreamscape with a mosaic of modernist and psychedelic vignettes synced perfectly to the immersive sonic ebb and flow and fluttering hook. Watch it HERE. Earlier this week, frontman Dan Smith joined Kenny Beats on his fan favorite Twitch show to discuss “Goosebumps” and the collaboration—check out some of their chat here.

Bastille set the stage for Goosebumps with their fan favorite single “survivin’,” which has vaulted into the Top 10 on the AAA Radio Chart and is continuing to gain steam. Additionally, the five-track EP boasts “WHAT YOU GONNA DO???” feat. Graham Coxon alongside a pair of energetic, live performances of “survivin’” and “Goosebumps” from One Eyed Jack’s.

Of the EP, Dan Smith says, “Working on these songs has been such a brilliantly distracting part of this year for us. This is the tip of the iceberg of what we’ve been doing, but it’s been fun to show people a few different sides to what we’ve been up to. Getting to collaborate with people like Graham Coxon and Kenny Beats hopefully shows the diversity of what we do across our albums and mixtapes. This EP has been a lot of fun to make, and we’ve loved seeing the reactions so far. We’re happy to have this little body of work out, and we’re incredibly excited for all that’s to come next year.

Regarding the new song, Smith adds, “We wanted to make a throwback R&B song and something a bit more playful. We had a lot of fun writing and recording it, initially on a day in between shows whilst touring in New York last year, and then back in London at our studio—One Eyed Jack’s. We’re big fans of Kenny Beats and having met him in LA invited him to hang out at the studio when he was in town. We played each other a load of music, and he loved ‘Goosebumps’ and immediately started working on beats and sounds for it, and it kind of went from there.

Goosebumps sets the stage for more new music to come from Bastille in 2021!

GOOSEBUMPS EP TRACKLISTING:

  1. “Goosebumps” feat. Kenny Beats
  2. “survivin’”

ABOUT BASTILLE

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “Britpop’s new crown princes,” Bastille was introduced internationally with the single “Pompeii,” which is now 6x Platinum in the U.S. “Pompeii” and subsequent hits, “Good Grief” (2016) and “Quarter Past Midnight” (2018), each topped the Mediabase Alternative chart in the States. The GRAMMY®-nominated band – comprising Dan Smith, keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist/guitarist Will Farquarson, and drummer Chris Wood – has global consumption exceeding 6 billion cumulative streams across all platforms, including 48 million adjusted singles and 7 million adjusted albums worldwide. Bastille’s hit single with Marshmello “Happier” topped charts around the world, with cumulative streams approaching 7 billion. Certified 6x Platinum in the U.S., “Happier” held the No. 1 position for 3 consecutive weeks on the Top 40 Radio Airplay chart. 2019 brought Bastille’s acclaimed third album, Doom Days, which charted in the top 5 in the U.S, making Bastille the only UK band to have achieved this chart landmark alongside The Beatles and Queen, and received massive critical acclaim, as NME called it “their most inventive boundary-hoping album yet.” Following a 2 month-long sold-out U.S. and U.K. tour last year, 2020 sees the band return with the ferocious “WHAT YOU GONNA DO???,” which sonically is either the first clue to a brand-new era for Bastille or a complete red herring. Either way, it marks the beginning of an exciting and surprising new era for the band.

SEVANA UNVEILS “BLESSED” VIDEO FROM HER LATEST EP BE SOMEBODY

SEVANA UNVEILS “BLESSED” VIDEO FROM HER LATEST EP “BE SOMEBODY” 

“The rising Jamaican star definitely has the range…manages to make the song’s already blissful hook sound even sweeter.”

NYLON

“Sevana has the octaves and pipes that give singers like Beyoncé their stripes.”

ESSENCE

“…poised for greatness…effortless, airy and buttery, it [Sevana’s voice] floats above dreamy melodies…forming a blend that feels timeless and yet profoundly modern.”

POPDUST

Sevana released her latest video for “Blessed.” The Jamaican singer gives reverence to a higher power on this Yoram Savion directed visual shot in the rustic terrain of Soda Springs, CA. Sevana towers over the bright horns as her voice overflows. This soul-baring anthem is off her acclaimed EP Be Somebody (out July 31 via In.Digg.Nation Collective / Six Course / RCA Records) and produced by IzyBeats, the hitmaker behind Koffee’s “Toast” and Lila Iké’s “I Spy.” Watch it HERE.

“The visual follows the story of a woman lost in the wilderness. She’s made a home there, but it all comes to a head when a threat finds its way into the home she’s made. Through divine intervention, she escapes. The threat is fear. The woman is me, “ Sevana explains.  It’s the story of my spiritual growth, how I awoke to a relationship with God as my world came crashing down. I  know what it feels like to never be alone again, I am covered, I am at peace. I am Blessed,” she adds.

The “Blessed” visual follows her “Mango” video which has over 2m+ views and is a favorite among the likes of actress Halle Berry and dancehall queen Spice. The latter song is also featured on her 6-track EP Be Somebody.

About Sevana:

Hailing from Jamaica gives any artist a certain legitimacy, but it also brings certain expectations — ones which Sevana lives up to, but also defies. While reflecting the island’s musical sensibilities in some ways,  Sevana’s vocals are strongly influenced by R&B and soul. Be Somebody comes after Sevana’s self-titled EP (2016), her 2018 breakthrough song “Sometime Love” and 2019’s singles “Nobody Man” and “Haul & Pull” off the Protoje and J Vibe produced Rock & Groove Riddim. In 2019, Sevana landed festival performances at Boomtown (UK), Reggae Geel (Germany) and Rototom Sunsplash (Spain), Sole DXB (Dubai) and joined Protoje on some of his major shows, including BRIC’s Celebrate Brooklyn! NYC concert and Jamaica’s largest annual music festival Reggae Sumfest. Sevana has earned notoriety by The FADER, ESSENCE, NYLON, COMPLEX, ASOS, VICE/Noisey, BBC (1Xtra), LargeUp and graced the cover of RIDDIM Magazine’s SPRING 2019 issue. Her naturally radiant look has made her a favorite of photographers and fashion labels. Most recently, she was included in PUMA Middle East’s 2020 campaign along with labelmate Lila Iké.
