The Royale – Supro

A new chapter in Supro history is arriving with the release of the “Royale” combo amp. The Royale 1×12 is the brands first loud clean amp and has ranges between a Class A and Class AB power mode.

The Royale was created to deliver powerful and clear clean tone with a reactive, tangible low end. With the use of a high-headroom, 50W tube amplifier paired with a powerful EG, footswitchable boost, tube-buffered effects loop and tube-driven spring reverb, the Royale provides a clear signal of all that is played through it on stage and in-studio.

The mighty amp in the Royale allows for a choice of Class A (35W) or Class AB (50W) operation. The Royale also showcases a master volume that controls sound pressure level. Class A mode produces “traditional, cathode-biased Supro sound with a bold, spongy midrange.” Class AB “delivers a grid-biased California sound with more scooped mid-range, tighter bass and faster transient response.”

Watch the product demo HERE, featuring Eric Krasno.

Elvis Presley – Kruse GWS Auctions

Elvis Presley’s rare concert used ovation guitar inscribed in gold nugget hits the auction block for the first time in almost 30 years.

Kruse GWS Auctions, the world-record breaking auction house specializing in entertainment memorabilia, fine jewelry, master timepieces, NFTs, and Royal artifacts has announced a rare and unimaginable surprise to the upcoming Artifacts of Hollywood & Music auction to take place Saturday, December 4, 2021, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Pacific. 360 Magazine is pleased to write about Kruse GWS Auctions as we recently had a post about their September auctions. 

The Elvis Presley Inscribed Ovation Acoustic Guitar is one of the guitars played by Elvis the year before his passing. The guitar was custom made for Presley and features the name Elvis Presley engraved into the neck in gold nugget….fitting for the artist who many refer to as “The King.” The guitar also features Mother of Pearl inlay and comes with the original “TCB” hard case. Most important to the history of this historical instrument is a letter of provenance which will accompany the guitar written on “E.A.P Graceland Memphis” (Elvis Aaron Presley) stationery and states “This guitar was custom made for and given to Elvis Aaron Presley in 1976. The guitar was used by Elvis in two concerts and is now owned by a couple from Winter Springs, Florida.” The letter is signed by Elvis’ first cousin and decorated with their own version of the TCB logo. The guitar was last sold at Sotheby’s almost 30 years ago. This is one of the many incredible items hitting the auction block on December 4, 2021, at 10 am Pacific.

Deana Carter – 25th Anniversary

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Deana Carter’s 5X platinum debut album Did I Shave My Legs for This?, Carter announced on The Bobby Bones Show that Capitol Nashville/Ume will release Did I Shave My Legs For This? 25th Anniversary Edition on November 5, but it isn’t just Carter doing the singing this time around. The project includes two new tracks with Carter performing and producing 2021 versions of the CMA award-winning, and 2X platinum hit single “Strawberry Wine,” featuring  Lauren Alaina, Martina McBride, Ashley McBryde, Kylie Morgan, and Vince Gill on guitar, as well as the title track, featuring Terri Clark, Sara Evans, Ashley McBryde, and Vince Gill.

The 25th anniversary editions of the album have been remastered from the original recordings and will be released on CD with two bonus tracks, as well as a Digital Deluxe with an additional ten songs, seven of which will be available digitally for the first time. Pre-order/Pre-save HERE

“I am beyond blown away to see the generational connection between my first single, ‘Strawberry Wine’ and all the fans, young and seasoned,” award-winning country singer-songwriter Carter shares. “Being a part of a song that has become an anthem for the ’90s and beyond is such a blessing and more than I could’ve ever dreamed of. The fans have been the catalyst for the success of ‘Strawberry Wine’ and the whole Shave album because of their connection to the truth and realness behind the songs.

“They lived it — just like I did — and just like all of my collaborators did. It was an honor to re-record two favorites with my fellow female artists who inspire me and who I admire. These new versions are a way of raising a glass to everyone who loves these songs, and to the country radio stations still playing them, and to say thank you. I hope everyone enjoys celebrating 25 years of Did I Shave My Legs For This? as much as I’ve enjoyed putting together these very special releases.”

1997 CMA Single and Song of the Year “Strawberry Wine,” written by Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison, was also nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Country Song, the Academy of Country Music Awards Best Country Song,  and the Country Music Radio Awards for Song of the Year. Carter co-wrote the title track “Did I Shave My Legs for This?” with Rhonda Hart.

“Who knew that some girl talk would end up becoming a cultural catchphrase for decades to come? Wow! This song is proof that a genuine, heartfelt message can be delivered with a sense of humor,” she added, “yet stand firm in the conviction to not settle for less in this life. Thanks to all the ladies who have sung this anthem at the top of their lungs and to my record label for letting me boldly title my debut album so memorably.”

Other chart-toppers from Carter’s debut album included “We Danced Anyway” (co-written by Berg and Randy Scruggs),How Do I Get There” (co-written by Carter and Chris Farren), and “Count Me In” (co-written by Carter and Chuck Jones).

As part of the album’s 25th Anniversary celebration, Carter will perform on the Grand Ole Opry Saturday, October 16, as part of the Opry’s 4,998th show. To purchase tickets, click HERE

Deana Carter will also celebrate the 25th Anniversary of her 5X Platinum debut album Did I Shave My Legs for This? in her hometown of Nashville on November 18, 2021 at the historic Ryman Auditorium, with special guests Charles Esten and Breland, as well as surprise appearances from other artists. Tickets are available NOW HERE.

It is such an honor and a career highlight to finally headline The Ryman, our sacred Mother Church, especially being a Nashville native and growing up in the industry, knowing that my dad, Fred Carter, Jr., performed on that stage with so many greats, Carter says. And all falling within the 25th anniversary re-release of my very first album Did I Shave My Legs For This? on UMG Nashville. It is a pinch-me moment now, she adds, and it will be on that super special night with Charles Esten and Breland and some surprise guests too.

Country newcomer Breland recently covered the first-love love song Strawberry Wine as part of Spotify’s 90s Country campaign and will be opening for Carter at the Ryman show. Strawberry Wine was just one of those songs that transcended time, Breland said of the ballad.

Gayle – abcdefu

17-year-old rising pop singer-songwriter GAYLE has debuted a stripped back version of her Atlantic Records debut single “abcdefu.” The original version has quickly amassed over 17M global streams. The emotional acoustic version of “abcdefu” is streaming now via YouTube HERE, which has been praised by Blackbook for its “earnest intensity.” “This video is to honor the girl who played in her bedroom for a year-and-a-half,” says GAYLE.

GAYLE celebrated the success of her fiery single “abcdefu” with three other alternate versions. “abcdefu (demo),” “abcdefu (chill),” and “abcdefu (angrier)” are streaming now via DSPs and streaming services. Each version showcases a different side of the versatile song.  The original version of “abcdefu” has amassed over 17M global streams and is available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE; an official music video is streaming now via YouTube HERE. GAYLE has already garnered some of pop’s most influential playlists and the song continues to grow in streams every single week since its launch just over a month ago. Produced by Pete Nappi (Kesha, Anne Marie, Madison Beer, Illenium), “abcdefu” arrives as a glowing example of GAYLE’s gift for fusing raw sincerity with an idiosyncratic and sometimes irreverent perspective. With its minimalist backdrop of jagged guitar work, the tongue-in-cheek breakup song explodes into a glorious free-for-all at its gang-vocal-fueled chorus. But “abcdefu” also telegraphs the Nashville-based artist’s refusal to compromise her own needs.

Along with the new versions of “abcdefu,” GAYLE has announced that she will serve as support on the upcoming Winnetka Bowling League tour. Tickets are on sale now- see the full list of dates below, and visit https://www.wbleague.com/ for more info.

Aidan Bissett – Get Dumped

Aidan Bissett returns with an introspective, headbanging, feel-good anthem for anyone who’s ever been dumped. Listen to Dumped, which he co-produced with Ryan Daly (Fitz and the Tantrums, Adam Lambert, Cyn), HERE. After writing the guitar-driven break-up song, Bissett took to TikTok to explain how the track came together in this tongue-in-cheek clip.

Getting dumped is the worst feeling in the world, but screaming this song will make you feel a whole lot better, says Aidan Bissett. The song is about learning that you are better off on your own and that it’s okay to be alone.

Director Brooke James (Troye Sivan) matches the energy of Bissett’s performance with the vibrant, kinetic official video for Dumped. Holed up in a typical teen bedroom, Bissett thoughtfully unpacks his heartbreak on the verses, then rages with his guitar on the scream-along chorus as the camera spins and zooms with equal frenzy. View the video HERE.

Dumped is the follow-up to So High which Euphoria praised as a certified summer bop this song demands to be played after dark either by the pool or the beach with a fire roaring nearby and drinks being passed around among friends. The Honey Pop declared, Aidan Bissett is an artist that everyone needs to be paying attention to. We have a feeling this is only the beginning of his genius artistry.

Born in Florida, Bissett was raised on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. He moved to Oregon with his family when he was five and started playing electric guitar in second grade. When his family moved back to Florida, he began teaching himself to produce his own music. Just a year ago, Bissett released his first single,Different, which immediately gained traction online.

As he amassed a sizable following on TikTok, he next put out Worst Girls of All Time, an anti-love-song spiked with moody guitar riffs that landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, and More Than Friends. Written, recorded, and produced entirely by Bissett, the songs earned him major buzz and landed the 18-year-old a deal with Capitol Records before he had even graduated from high school. Combined global streams of Bissett’s first three tracks and his Capital debut single, Communication are nearing 11 million.

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.

Role Model Releases New Single and Video – forever&more

Role Model (a.k.a. Tucker Pillsbury) is back with a brand-new single entitled “forever&more” along with the music video. The track is a mid-summer bop that glides along on a sun-soaked guitar loop and glitchy beat as he details the bliss of new love. With its nostalgic hook and vivid lyrics, “forever&more” marks a new chapter for Tucker as he enters the next phase of his music career. Role Model’s “forever&more” is available now at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records.

Click here to listen.

Role Model says about the track, “It’s obviously a love song. I really wanted to set up scenes of how my relationship started and the little moments that got us to where we are. This is the first time I’m letting people into the relationship and giving them visuals of those early stages and how I see it going in my head forever and more.”

The music video for “forever&more” was directed by Dylan Knight and finds Tucker happy and in love. The camera pans between shots of Role Model amongst his friends and alone time with his love interest while he chronicles the indescribable, euphoric feeling of being in love, and knowing it’s going to last forever. While the song and video parallel his real-life experience, it’s clear that this relationship has made Tucker the best version of himself.

Click here to watch the music video.

About Role Model

Tucker Pillsbury assembles, disassembles, and reassembles different vibes, sounds, and emotions into Role Model. One moment, he’s crooning about his crush’s earrings over crunchy chords. The next, he’s spitting bars about staying home. Either way, the intimacy of his songwriting beckons connection. You’ll experience doubt, anxiety, infatuation, and even love right next to him. His story kicked into high gear back in 2017. Following the Soundcloud success of “Cocaine Babe” and “Girl In New York,” he earned the respect of late idol Mac Miller and Benny Blanco. Trading Maine for California, he made waves with the oh, how perfect EP in 2019, generating tens of millions of streams on “hello,” “notice me” [feat. BENEE], and “that’s just how it goes.” A year later, his momentum only increased with the follow-up our little angel EP. The single “blind” eclipsed 40 million Spotify streams, while coup de main hailed it as “must-listen.” The Line of Best Fit praised his “songs with tenderness and Gen Z apathy.” After gathering nearly 200 million streams and receiving acclaim from HYPEBEAST, DIY, Earmilk, and many more, he illuminates every side of himself on newest single “forever&more” with more music to come.

Third Man announces Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York

Third Man Records is excited to announce Vault Package #49: Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 (1980-1985). In conjunction with Sony/Legacy, Third Man will release this 4xLP collection (pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit) full of previously unreleased outtakes, mixes and more, complete with a 16-page booklet of liner notes and track notations and four uniquely-colored LPs in their own individual LP sleeves, all housed together in an impressive custom slipcase. The songs on the Third Man Vault will be the ONLY vinyl release of those 42 songs. There is NO material overlap between the 2xLP version from Sony/Legacy and the 4xLP release from Third Man. Sign up is open now through July 31 at midnight CT.

In the early 1980s, while the music industry was grappling with the arrival of new trends and technology, from MTV to compact discs to digital recording, Bob Dylan was writing and recording new songs for a new decade, creating an essential new chapter in his studio catalog. The latest in Columbia/Legacy’s highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series revisits an often-forgotten, rich vein in Dylan’s vast and complex catalog, shining fresh light on the provocative new musical directions Dylan was taking as a songwriter and a recording artist from 1980 through 1985. Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York (1980-1985) celebrates the rich creative period surrounding Dylan’s albums Shot Of Love, Infidels, and Empire Burlesque with previously unreleased outtakes, alternate takes, rehearsal recordings, live performances and more.

Third Man Records, in conjunction with Sony/Legacy, is humbled to release a limited edition 4LP vinyl collection of Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) as their 49th Vault package. Pressed on gold, violet, orange and purple discs at the state-of-the-art Third Man Pressing facility in Detroit, the set includes a 16-page booklet of liner notes and track notations, as well as individual LP sleeves all housed together in an impressive slipcase.

Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) is also available in a deluxe 5xCD boxset as well as 2xCD and 2xLP 12” vinyl highlight packages. The songs on the Third Man Vault will be the ONLY vinyl release of those 42 songs. There is NO material overlap between the 2xLP version from Sony/Legacy and the 4xLP release from Third Man.

LP One of Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) was recorded in 1980 and 1981 and finds Dylan rehearsing a variety of his own catalog compositions (“Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)”), rearranging some traditional folk tunes (“Jesus Met the Woman at the Well,” “Mary of the Wild Moor”) and revving up a selection of surprising covers (“Mystery Train” featuring Ringo Starr, “Fever,” “Abraham, Martin and John”) with a group of musicians including Frank Fred Tackett (guitar), David Mansfield (mandolin), Willie Smith (keyboards), Tim Drummond (bass), Jim Keltner (drums) and background vocals by Clydie King, Carolyn Dennis, Gwen Evans, and Regina McCrary.

LP Two of Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York (1980-1985) is devoted to outtakes and alternate takes of recordings, produced by Chuck Plotkin for Shot of Love, as well as material Bob Dylan wrote for Infidels, performed by the all-star band assembled for the album, produced by Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler, which featured Knopfler (guitar), Mick Taylor (guitar), Alan Clark (keyboards), Robbie Shakespeare (bass) and Sly Dunbar (drums).

LP Four of the album includes live tracks (“Enough Is Enough” from Slane Castle, Ireland, and “License to Kill” from Late Night with David Letterman, March 22, 1984) alongside alternate takes and outtakes from the Empire Burlesque sessions, produced by Bob Dylan, including the premiere of the new song “Straight A’s in Love.”

According to the Producer’s Note in the album: “The alternate takes selected for this set are different than the ones released on previous volumes of The Bootleg Series. They are included here to illustrate the musical journey Bob Dylan undertook during these years.”

In his liner notes for Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York, Damien Love writes, “And that’s the real story of this gloriously untrammeled collection. The songs. The songs stripped free of trappings, tampering, passing tastes, and judgements. The songs broken down to the sound of people really doing this, right now, acting on instinct. The songs rough and rowdy, bruised and tender, joking and crying, nagging and striving and yearning. The songs were always there, and here they are still, keeping pace with us.”

Fans have only until July 31st to subscribe to Third Man Records Vault, where they will automatically receive this package. Visit here to sign up.
