ABOUT QUINN XCII

Quinn XCII (pronounced Quinn Ninety-Two) is the kind of person you root for. He’s a very grateful husband and an endlessly loyal friend. He goes through shitty days and good days (just like the rest of us do), but he writes about them both in his music without filter or pretense. Despite “making it” (he hates that turn-of-phrase, by the way!), he doesn’t put himself on a pedestal whatsoever. Rather, he acts, speaks, and sings with the approachability of the guy who just gave you his spot in the checkout line or waited for the next elevator. Back in 2015, Quinn XCII emerged with a disarmingly catchy and dynamic personal style of his own punctuated by alternative nuances and unexpected (yet undeniable) pop prowess. He has earned successive Platinum singles, including “Kings of Summer” with ayokay, “Straightjacket,” and “Love Me Less” with MAX. In addition, he has a handful of Gold singles, including “Flare Guns” feat. Chelsea Cutler, “Another Day In Paradise,” “Stacy,” and “Always Been You.” During 2021, his album Change of Scenery II captured #1 on the Apple Pop Chart and #1 on the Spotify US Debut Album Chart. Simultaneously, he ignited anthems alongside Logic, blackbear, Chelsea Cutler, Jeremy Zucker, Ashe, Louis The Child, Gryffin, Illenium, and more. Not to mention, he has sold out headline tours coast-to-coast, selling over 350,000 tickets as a headliner, and graced the stages of festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Governors Ball, Summerfest, and Electric Forest. Beyond applause from BillboardRolling StonePaper Magazine, and  Interview Magazine, he lit up television shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live!The Late Late Show with James CordenLive with Kelly and RyanThe Today Show, and more. Now, he kicks off his next chapter with his new singles for Republic Records, “Backpack” and “Common” feat. Big Sean, taken from his forthcoming fifth-studio album The People’s Champ, out January 27th.

WHITE REAPER “ASKING FOR A RIDE” via 360 MAGAZINE

WHITE REAPER – “ASKING FOR A RIDE”

WHITE REAPER ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ASKING FOR A RIDE

SHARE NEW SONG & MUSIC VIDEO – “PAGES”

ANNOUNCE 2023 NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTS

NARROW HEAD, MILITARIE GUN, TAIPEI HOUSTON & MAMALARKY

ASKING FOR A RIDE ARRIVES JANUARY 27TH

White Reaper have announced details of their new album Asking for a Ride, which will be released January 27th on Elektra Entertainment and is available for pre-order today [album art / track listing below]. The band have also shared the new song, “Pages” which is available now on all streaming platforms and joined by a Lance Bangs directed music video – watch it HERE.

Elaborating on “Pages” and Asking for a Ride, vocalist / guitarist Tony Esposito remarked, “It seems like Pages’ could’ve easily existed on one of our earlier records, it’s just a few chords and a simple melody; but because of that, I’d say that it’s pretty unique to the rest of our new album. We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on.”

Director Lance Bangs commented on the “Pages” video adding, “White Reaper are a joy to make things with, 5 guys that are good company in recording studios, house parties, live shows, and anywhere else you can spend time among them. We had a great experience shooting saturated color motion picture film on handheld cameras for the ‘Real Long Time‘ video for their previous album, and I wanted to get everyone together for an outdoor daylight look in one of my favorite architectural public spaces, the Keller Fountain in Portland Oregon. It was designed in the late 60s and opened to the public in 1970. It’s an enduring free space where people can spend time. We filmed on a bright, warm afternoon and conjured up a video that feels like the song: dynamic, catchy, genuine.”

Recorded and largely self-produced in Nashville with the help of close friend and engineer Jeremy Ferguson, Asking for a Ride finds the Louisville band taking a more direct and in-your-face approach, prioritizing the collection’s raw energy and its ability to translate live through ripping and nervy compositions. It’s White Reaper at their most exciting – dialing up the chrome-plated riffs and monster hooks – a welcome reminder of just how much fun rock music can be.

“We ask ourselves: Does it sound good when we play it in the room together?’ And if it does, those are the songs we want to pursue,” Esposito noted.

Guitarist Hunter Thompson concurred: “We started to recognize how we operate best as a band.”

The band teased additional new music from their forthcoming LP in an album trailer released earlier this week – watch it HERE.

In addition to the news of their forthcoming album, White Reaper have also revealed plans for a run of 2023 North American headline tour dates. The upcoming “Asking for a Ride” tour will feature special guests Narrow Head, Militarie Gun, Taipei Houston, and Mamalarky on select dates, and will kick off February 7th [tour itinerary below]. Pre-sale tickets for the tour are available today, with general on-sale for tickets beginning Friday, October 28th. The forthcoming dates will see White Reaper’s long awaited return to touring after having spent years living on the road, headlining and supporting some of their idols – Pearl Jam, Weezer, and The Killers – while making festival appearances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and more. For tickets and more information on White Reaper’s upcoming tour dates, visit www.whitereaperusa.com.

Comprised of Tony Esposito (guitar / vocals), Ryan Hater (keyboards), Sam Wilkerson (bass), Nick Wilkerson (drums), and Hunter Thompson (guitar), Asking for a Ride follows White Reaper’s 2019 album You Deserve Love, which marked a new career peak for the Louisville band. The collection was led by the number one alternative radio hit, “Might Be Right,” which the band later made their network TV debut performing on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!. A collection of smart, sharply-written songs of doubt, dislocation, and elusive and often complicated love, The New York Times observed, “The Kentucky quintet White Reaper blends the winking gravitas of 70s arena rock with garage-y power popߪ enjoy the trip back,” while GQ applauded the release as “the perfect companion for all your nice weather fun.”Equal parts glam and grit, You Deserve Love found the band expanding on the songcraft laid down on 2017’s critically acclaimed The World’s Best American Band, which landed on Noisey‘s “100 Best Albums of 2017” and Pitchfork‘s “20 Best Rock Albums of 2017,” earning an 8.0 album score.

KIMBRA "SAVE ME" VIA 360 MAGAZINE

KIMBRA – “SAVE ME”

KIMBRA ANNOUNCES UPCOMING ALBUM ‘A RECKONING’ 

RELEASES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO “SAVE ME”

Today, two-time Grammy-award winning artist Kimbra announces her upcoming studio album A Reckoning. To coincide with the announcement, she has debuted new single “Save Me” alongside a music video directed by Yvan Fabing.

LISTEN & WATCH “Save Me” HERE

Set for release in 2023, A Reckoning is primed to be a reflective record capturing the macro reckonings that impact our world around environment, race, feminism health and patriarchy through the eyes of the archteypal Mother. But at the heart of her record is the war with the micro reckonings that Kimbra faces internally. It’s the most sonically autonomous and confessionally raw she has ever been, finding influence in everything from modern movie soundtracks to electronic and industrial worlds. The album was first imagined in 2018, during Kimbra’s tour with co-producer Ryan Lott of the band Son Lux, who recently scored A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once.

On “Save Me,” Kimbra shares a moment of deep yearning set on a bed of unsettling warped pianos. She explores how two internal realities can be present at once : chaos and contemplation, rage and still life-force. Inspired by a singular moment, she searches her insecurities with hopes that someone will save her from herself.

The track is brought to new light in the music video that shows the pop singer in Iceland, traversing dangerous, surreal terrains as she seeks to heal her relationship to self, to other women, and finally to our Mother Earth.

More to come from Kimbra.

About Kimbra:

New Zealand-born pop star and two-time Grammy Award winning tour de force Kimbra is readying her fourth studio album, A Reckoning, produced in tandem with Son Lux’s Ryan Lott.

This is just the latest chapter in a series of Kimbra’s overall career success: the experimental pop performer’s 2011 debut, Vows, bowed at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified platinum in Australia and New Zealand. She received Best Female Artist two years in a row at the ARIA Music Awards and took home 5 New Zealand Tui Awards including Album of The Year in 2012. That same year, she exploded into the public consciousness with “Somebody That I Used To Know,” a duet with Gotye that earned her two Grammy Awards for “Record of the Year” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” as well as reaching No. 1 on global charts (across 18 countries) and selling more than 13 million copies.

Her 2014 sophomore record, The Golden Echo, highlighted her eclectic style with a diverse set of collaborations from Thundercat, Omar-Rodriguez Lopez of The Mars Volta, Bilal, and John Legend. Likewise, her third LP, 2018’s Primal Heart, saw her touring with the likes of Beck, Odesza and David Byrne. Kimbra has performed on TV shows such as Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Last Call with Carson Daly, Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Seth Meyers, as well as performing at festivals such as Coachella, Austin City Limits and more.

Moving forward, Kimbra hopes listeners will find catharsis and connection on A Reckoning, whether they are contending with change in their own lives or processing shifts in the world around them.

Meghan Trainor – Takin’

She’s back! GRAMMY® Award-winning, global superstar Meghan Trainor has announced her anxiously awaited fourth full-length album, Takin’ It Back, arriving October 21st, 2022 via Epic Records. Pre-order/pre-save HERE.

This time around, she made a conscious decision to hark back to the signature sound she introduced on her 2015 full-length debut, TITLE, and bring it forward to today.

About the album, Meghan said, “I tried to do the doo-wop feel I had at the beginning of my career, but the 2022 version of it. This is from the new Meghan who is a wife and mom with a baby. This is from me right now. I decided to give the people what they want, but with my spices added to it. I wanted to make my Title 2.0.

To bring the record to life, she worked closely alongside a “core squad” of Gian StoneFederico VindverSean Douglas, and little brother Justin Trainor out of her own home studio. Musically, she integrates doo-wop and classic harmonies into one anthem after another taking you through her journey into marriage, motherhood, and achieving a new level of confidence.

It’s embodied on the bold and bright new single  “Bad For Me,” featuring Teddy Swims, out today. The track finds the powerhouse tapping into her doo-wop roots once more with a whole lot of fresh fire. Throwback harmonies underline a simmering groove as she opens up lyrically. On the chorus, she urges, “Please don’t make promises that you can’t keep. Your best intentions end up hurting me.” Meanwhile, Teddy appears with a seismic and show-stopping vocal turn of his own. Together, they uplift the lyrics with undeniable energy. Listen HERE.

Directed by Thom Kerr (Iggy Azalea, Kim Petras), the accompanying video finds Meghan and Teddy in a symbolic and surreal world full of flowers. As the video fluctuates between different landscapes, it showcases the journey that writing and recording this song has taken Meghan on. It’s one in which she has found light and new beginnings in distancing herself from toxic relationships. Watch HERE.

Regarding “Bad For Me, Meghan commented, “My dad actually sent me Teddy’s video for ‘Broke’, and I’ve been so obsessed with him ever since. It’s a dream to record with someone who has that good of a voice, and he’s the sweetest guy ever. The song is a true story for me. It’s about how I stood up for myself and took a step back from a relationship that was hurting me more than anything. It’s hard to do, but I needed to in order to feel better.

Meghan and Teddy will be performing “Bad For Me,” for the first time, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Friday, June 24th. Get ready for more very soon as Meghan takes it back in 2022.

About Fitz and The Tantrums

Over the course of four full-length albums, multi-platinum artists Fitz and the Tantrums have grown from independent upstarts to bonafide hitmakers. Beginning with their 2010 debut album PICKIN’ UP THE PIECES and its gold-certified single “Moneygrabber,” the LA-based sextet built a rabid fanbase with their infectious music and energetic live shows, which landed them a coveted spot on the Coachella Music and Arts Festival lineup. The band’s major label debut MORE THAN JUST A DREAM arrived in 2013 and spawned back-to-back platinum-certified singles in “Out Of My League” and “The Walker.” Following that breakout success, Fitz and the Tantrums returned with their 2016 release FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS, which featured their biggest hit to date, the double-platinum certified “HandClap.” Amassing billions of streams and attracting praise from Rolling Stone, Billboard, and more, the group has morphed into an arena-ready force, performing countless, sold-out headlining shows and marque music festivals around the world.

Last month, the internationally acclaimed Belgian-born artist, writer, performer, producer, designer and director released his critically acclaimed third-studio album: Multitude. The album has been hailed by The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPR and countless other respected publications. The twelve-track masterpiece was composed by Stromae, produced by his creative label Mosaert, and features recent singles “Santé,” “L’enfer” and his most recent offering, “Fils De Joie.”

Multitude is available on digital, CD and vinyl, including special colored version for D2C. Listen HERE.

Ahead of his high anticipated Coachella appearances on Saturday April 16 and 23, Stromae will be performing live on ABC‘s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, April 11.

Multitude comes after a period of forced hiatus from the stage. With it came furlough and its silver linings: settling down, leading a more relaxed, structured life closer to family, making work exciting again, expanding his sources of inspiration, and, most of all, making what he went through worth it by reinvesting the dividends of this challenging phase into the core of new songs.

Far from any self-centered self-pity, Stromae took advantage of this time to identify more closely with others, putting himself in the others’ shoes. The unstable men in “La Solassitude and “Mon Amour,” the prostitute’s son in “Fils de Joie,” the depressed and suicidal protagonists of “Mauvaise Journée” and “L’Enfer,” the mismatched couple in “Pas Vraiment,” the invisible people in “Santé,” the suffering women in “Déclaration.” He embraces them all with kindness and altruism, providing each with a touching portrait.

By doing so, he gives the title Multitude a deep resonance, the same one that Walt Whitman conveys in his poem, of which Stromae bases the album off of: “I am large, I contain multitude, I am of every hue and caste, of every rank and religion.””Multitude is a window on the world, on people, and a rare moment of communion and pleasure to be shared. An alchemy of opposites, shaped by the will to testify without judgment or contempt to the human condition in all its diversity, and to the urge to explore the lives of others, sometimes your own (Que du bonheur on fatherhood, Invaincu on healing). Multitude is Stromae’s other way of exploring the world, while staying firmly attached to his roots.
