3Breezy – Message to Her Music Video

3BREEZY RELEASES THE VIDEO FOR MESSAGE TO HER TODAY, WATCH HERE

Today newly-signed Capitol Records hip hop/RnB artist 3Breezy releases the video for Message To Her. The record, self-released by 3Breezy last November, already has 2,817,445 views, and overall in his short career 3Breezy has amassed nearly 25 million streams in the U.S. alone.

WATCH HERE

On Message to Her, Breezy tells the story of a woman who’s been neglected by her lover. Alternating between the woman’s perspective and his own, Breezy offers words of encouragement that are as tender as his vocals: Pick your head up, baby, know you got a purpose. Inspired by a direct message he received from a fan who wanted him to sing a story she couldn’t tell on her own, the song is both a literal embodiment of his mission to provide musical therapy for fans across the globe. The comments most shared from listeners are how the felt every word and that the song hits hard, As Breezy prepares his new project, Catch a Breeze, he’s just at the beginning of exploring this sensitive side of himself more fully.

3Breezy has only been making music for around a year, but already has a growing legion of fans ensnared by his crooning, hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms. Raised in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, he grew up surrounded by sisters and aunts and did a lot of listening, the background soundtrack for Message to Her and his understanding of both a man and a woman’s perspective — a born shoulder to lean on.

Gifted with a reassuring baritone and the empathy of someone who listens more than he speaks, 3Breezy colors in tales of heartbreak and healing with smoky melodies and wide-eyed sincerity, creating optimistic anthems for lost souls in search of happy endings. After debuting his first song in October of 2020 he began a consistent pattern of releasing singles & his debut mixtape Murda She Wrote. His sincere lyrics and detailed story-telling quickly captivated audiences across Tik Tok, YouTube, & locally. Through his music 3Breezy hopes to uplift, empower, and spread positivity through crooning his hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms.

Breezy’s burgeoning rap career was born from a global catastrophe, a dream deferred, and bad weather. Raised in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, the man born Nihee Wesley could see peers embracing the negative influences in the neighborhood, but he mostly kept to himself and steered clear of trouble in the process. By the time Breezy graduated, he planned on becoming a veterinarian technician, he realized he liked working with animals. Another reason was because I didn’t like working with people, he recalls with a laugh. After going to college for two years to get his vet assistant certification, Breezy was set to take on a job in his field. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic began and he was unable to do so.

One rainy day, after playing video games got old, Breezy noticed a TikTok user who said he’d recorded a song through his phone. After checking out the song and deciding it sounded pretty good, he downloaded GarageBand to his phone and got to work himself. Spitting over a dreamy guitar line, Breezy recorded his first song, the free-associative and casually braggadocious Kiss My Automatic. After creating the tune, he called his friend over to his house to see if he was hearing it right. After getting the cosign, he posted it to his TikTok account, which already had a sizable following, and proceeded to rack up likes and comments. Seeing the response to the song, Breezy began to consider new career possibilities. That was like one of my biggest videos I posted on TikTok,; he recalls. I’m like, What if I took this seriously?

By 2021, Breezy got his answer when he signed to Capitol Records and released Murda She Wrote, which, it should be said, he recorded entirely through his iPhone. While the first song he ever made was smooth for a debut, Murda She Wrote showcase a crystallized version of 3Breezy, one who’s not afraid to veer from the boasting to instead embrace his sensitivity. Growing up in a house with his aunts, he’d hear stories of their trials and tribulations in romance, and he’d get advice from his great-grandmother on how to speak to women. Songs like Message to Her and Mental Love reflect that upbringing. On newer releases like Move On and Message from Breezy (a spiritual sequel to Message to Her), he’s only doubled down on his emotional explorations, which heߣll surely continue to do on Catch a Breeze.

While he refers to himself as the voice of the heartbroken now, there was a time when he was afraid to embrace his emotions in song. I always had a thing for making this type of music, but I never really posted it because I didn’t want my homies to be like, Bro, why are you making this soft music? Nobody wants to hear you in your feelings, Breezy says. The second I stopped giving a fuck what anybody else thought and did what I liked is when I started seeing progress.

Third Man Books Announces Memoirs from Rock Legends Bobby Gillespie and Will Sergeant

THIRD MAN BOOKS ANNOUNCES TWO NEW TITLES: BOBBY GILLESPIE’S TENEMENT KID & WILL SERGEANT’S BUNNYMAN: POST-WAR KID TO POST-PUNK GUITARIST OF ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN, PRIMAL SCREAM FRONTMAN & ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN GUITARIST MEMORIALIZE THEIR STORIED LIVES AND CAREERS WITH REVELATORY MEMOIRS, BOTH DUE IN STORES THIS FALL, GILLESPIE’S COLLABORATIVE ALBUM WITH JEHNNY BETH, UTOPIAN ASHES, OUT JULY 2

Third Man Books has announced new books from two of the foremost icons in British rock history — Bobby Gillespie’s Tenement Kid and Will Sergeant’s Bunnyman: Post-War Kid to Post-Punk Guitarist of Echo and the Bunnymen. Tenement Kid will arrive in stores this October, while Bunnyman will follow shortly afterward in November. Find pre-orders for Tenement Kid HERE, and for Bunnyman HERE.

Each title marks the first time that either musician — Gillespie being the beloved frontman of Primal Scream, and Sergeant being Echo and the Bunnymen’s groundbreaking original (and current) guitarist — has captured the details of their storied lives and musical careers in writing. Bunnyman is noteworthy as the first authorized written history of Echo and the Bunnymen by a member of the band, and each book translates its author’s unique voice, singular vision and incomparable life into an exciting, revelatory read.

Tenement Kid is but the latest landmark in a banner year for Gillespie, whose Utopian Ashes — a collaborative album with Savages vocalist and solo artist Jehnny Beth — arrives July 2 on Third Man Records.

About Tenement Kid

Fizzing with an infectious passion for the magic of rock music, Bobby Gillespie’s vivid and evocative new memoir, TENEMENT KID (Third Man Books | Oct. 2021), traces the Primal Scream frontman’s path from a post-war Glasgow tenement to the release of Screamadelica, the bandߣs psychedelic award-winning masterpiece that helped usher in the 1990s.

So much more than a rockstar’s memoir, Tenement Kid is also a book filled with the joy and wonder of a rock’n’roll apostle who radically reshaped the future sounds of fin de siècle British pop. Structured in four parts, Tenement Kid builds like a breakbeat crescendo from Gillespie’s working-class Glaswegian upbringing to the Second Summer of Love that saw the ’80s bleed into the ’90s and a new kind of electronic soul music starting to pulse through the Great Britain’s consciousness. In this book, Gillespie takes us through the release of Screamadelica and the tour that followed as Primal Scream become the most innovative British band of the new decade.

Published thirty years after the release of that seminal album, Tenement Kid cuts a righteous path through a decade lost to Thatcherism and saved by acid house. It’s a joyful, celebratory, and beautifully written book which will remind us of better times, just as we hope those better times might be returning.

Praise for Bobby Gillespie

Dance music threw open new wardrobes for British indieland an inveterate dresser-up like Bobby Gillespie could, and did, take full advantage – Pitchfork

A major influence on so many people; musicians and fans alike. – Rolling Stone

The length of Bobby Gillespie’s ambitions has never been a surprise. Who knew that the drummer in the Jesus and Mary Chain would go on to enjoy three decades in rock’n’roll and surpass the Stones at their own game? Bob did. – The Guardian

About Bunnyman

Post-War Kid to Post-Punk Guitarist of Echo and the Bunnymen

If songs like Bring on the Dancing Horses and Lips like Sugar don’t ring a bell, youߣll find Echo and the Bunnymen all over the soundtracks of television shows like Stranger Things and movies such as The Lost Boys, Pretty in Pink, Donnie Darko, and more. Will Sergeant, a founding member of the seminal post-punk band, tells the first authorized account of his and the band’s history in BUNNYMAN: Post-War Kid to Post-Punk Guitarist of Echo and the Bunnymen.

With wit and heart, Sergeant provides a detailed, first-hand account of the birth of the legendary post-punk band, as well as a social and musical history of post-WWII England, the effects of Thatcher-ism, English rock, the beginnings of punk.

It is a heady time of power cuts, strikes, flying pickets, bread shortages, skinhead gangs, IRA bomb scares, nuclear war fears, rock gigs, glam clothes, drowned motorbikes, explosives, dead-end jobs and the usual school lessons of chicken strangulation, Sergeant writes. With the help of music, I manage to navigate myself through the sinking sand of prog rock and into the safety of punk. My boots still muddy with a bad attitude, I head into the winter of discontent to become a post-punk trailblazer worshipped all over the world as a god. Well? An inventive and influential guitarist of some note at the very least.

Will Sergeant is best known for his work as songwriter and guitarist with Echo & The Bunnymen with whom he has recorded and performed world-wide for thirty years. He also has long-term ties with the experimental side of life, in the fields of performance, recording and the visual arts. He has produced solo and collaborative works since the 1980s, His first major solo art show My Own Worst Enemy debuted at the Liverpool Penny Lane Gallery in 2011 and at the Substrate Gallery in Los Angeles, California, 2012.

The Front Bottoms – Voodoo Magic

THE FRONT BOTTOMS TEAM UP WITH BLINK-182’s MATT SKIBA ON NEW SINGLE VOODOO MAGIC, ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO STREAMING NOW ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR, PRE-SALE TICKETS AVAILABLE TODAY, GENERAL ON SALE BEGINS JUNE 11 AT 12:00PM LOCAL TIME

Fueled By Ramen band The Front Bottoms have released a new single Voodoo Magic. The track is available today on all streaming platforms with an accompanying animated music video streaming on The Front Bottoms’ YouTube channel.

Day in, day out. The same old voodoo follows us about, remarked The Front Bottoms’ Brian Sella and Mathew Uychich.

For Voodoo Magic, the band enlisted Matt Skiba of Blink-182 and Alkaline Trio to play guitar on the gleefully ironic, yet infectious punk anthem. Renowned for his infamous viral Sundance Film Festival short Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No, the band then recruited director James Blagden to helm the visual, animating two perspectives of a day where absolutely nothing can go right in his signature style.

The Front Bottoms have also revealed details for a 2021 U.S. headline tour, which marks their first proper headline run in support of last year’s critically acclaimed In Sickness & In Flames. Coming off the heels of a performance at Lollapalooza later this August, they’ll hit the road on September 14th in New Haven, CT at College Street Music Hall and visit major markets coast to coast before concluding the tour with a show at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on October 24th. A special presale for members of The Front Bottoms’ Motorcycle Club goes live today at 10:00AM ET. Local presales will begin at 12:00PM ET on June 10th with general on sale commencing Friday June 11th at 12:00 PM local time. Support for the upcoming dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Brian Sella and drummer Mathew Uychich, The Front Bottoms have gripped listeners and press around the world with their ragged honesty and emotional urgency. In 2020, The Front Bottoms released their celebrated new album, In Sickness & In Flames, a twelve song collection produced by Mike Sapone. NME attested, In Sickness & In Flames is a defining work that showcases a sonic universe, rather than a structured set of songs, expertly capturing the inescapable tension of 2020. A.V. Club declared, The Front Bottoms are as vibrant as ever on In Sickness & In Flames, a reliably great collection of folk-punk anthems that rattle the soul with crunchy riffs, electrifying hooks, and Brian Sella’s idiosyncratic lyricism, which remains as amiable as it is anxiety-ridden. UPROXX added In Sickness & In Flames features the band’s biggest choruses to date, anchored with hooks and deeply personal songwriting that will turn heads, while The FADER hailed it as a celebration of sorts for a band perennially on the fringes of a major breakthrough. The Alternative detailed, While In Sickness & In Flames was written prior to the pandemic, so much of it feels so tethered to our present collective experience, from the introspection and reflective growth that is showcased in the songwriting, to the sweeping highs and lows of the music itself. This album is the perfect companion piece to the anxiety of standing in the face of uncertainty.

Carol Ades – I Can’t Wait to be British

CAROL ADES MAKES HER LANDMARK DEBUT WITH I CAN’T WAIT TO BE BRITISH, GLOBALLY SUCCESSFUL SINGER-SONGWRITER RECLAIMS PERSONAL ARTISTRY WITH POWERFUL NEW ANTHEM, DEBUT EP DUE LATER THIS YEAR

Globally successful singer-songwriter Carol Ades is proud to announce today’s premiere of her landmark debut single. I Can’t Wait to be British is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.

LISTEN TO I CAN’T WAIT TO BE BRITISH

I Can’t Wait to be British marks a powerful reclamation of personal artistry from Carol Ades (pronounced ahh-dis), formerly known best as acclaimed singer and songwriter Caroline Pennell. The optimistic anthem heralds Ades’ upcoming debut EP, due later this year.

It’s really just about feeling out of control and half joking / half genuinely hoping I would find that control if I moved to London and had a totally different life, says Carol Ades. It’s sort of self-aware escapism! The structure is so chaotic to represent my train of thought surrounding my feelings. It doesn’t really make any sense but at the same time it adds up in some weird way? It’s a very very very true reflection of my brain and the thoughts I fight off on a daily basis. And I also genuinely think I was meant to be a British woman!!!

Emotions make a mess. It’s not the kind of mess you can just shove under the bed either. Carol Ades isn’t here to help you scrub out the mess until you can’t see it anymore. Instead, she’s here to help you celebrate it, learn something from it, and move on confidently because of it. The New Jersey-born and Los Angeles-based artist, singer, and songwriter wants to empower you, but she’s going to keep it real too. Carol dedicated her whole life to music and even had a few brushes with major success on stage and behind-the-scenes. Following a bad breakup, she turned inward and wasn’t afraid to get raw in 2018. Under the influence of everything from the series Fleabag, Greta Gerwig, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Glennon Doyle to Japanese House, MUNA, and Phoebe Bridgers, she began to write her own coming of age story. Ironically, the first song of this phase ended up in the hands of two other artists, becoming Past Life for Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez. With the onset of quarantine, she wrote for herself at a prolific pace, making emotional lyric-driven songs you can scream to or sob to in your car. The first of which is her debut single I Can’t Wait to be British. You’ll find she’s a lot like the friend who lets you cry on her shoulder, but still tells it like it is when you need to hear it the most, holding your hand through the mess with timeless music of her own.

My best friends call me Carol, she says. It feels a bit grandma-ish, which I love. I feel like I’m a 60-year-old in a 25-year-old’s body. Ades is my middle name and makes me feel so close to who I was as a kid. I didn’t make up a new name, since the music is so personal. Carol Ades feels like the ‘wiser voice’ in the back of my head who helps me solve problems. So many songs poured out of me over the last year as a direct result of processing change. Now feels like the right time to put out into the world.

Leading off with the breathy wit and intimacy of I Can’t Wait to be British, Ades’ upcoming debut EP will showcase her evolving imagination with raw and real anthems as undeniable as they are unapologetic, emotional lyric-driven songs you can scream to or sob to in your car.

I want fans to listen to these songs and feel like, ‘Oh shit, I really needed to hear that’ or ‘That’s what I was feeling this morning, but I couldn’t figure out the words to describe it’, Carol Ades says. I’m going to keep building a world around a community of people who feel like me and want to help each other through hard things.

Adore Me × Bebe Rexha Capsule Collection

Adore Me has never been a celebrity-driven brand but when the opportunity to work with Bebe Rexha was presented, they knew they couldn’t pass it up. Bebe has always been a powerful voice on body positivity and inclusivity – the themes most near and dear to Adore Me’s heart.

But the timing really matters to us, too, says Assiya Assanbayeva who is a content strategist for Adore Me. As we head into a summer where America’s re-opening, we’re excited that we have someone like Bebe Rexha to spread the message that it’s okay to celebrate and have fun. As a lingerie brand, making our customers feel happy, confident, and sexy is at the core of what we do – and after everything we’ve collectively been through, we truly hope we can spread some joy to our customers with this collection.

The collaboration was built around products that are unafraid to be sexy and playful, like both Bebe Rexha and Adore Me. Just like Bebe Rexha crosses genres from pop to country to rap to rock, Adore Me has always been driven to serve all styles of lingerie to all types of customers of all sizes. We hope the collection reflects this. Who better than a lingerie brand and an inspiring musician to help us through a hot vax summer. 

You can read more about the partnership and see the launch video here.

Onika Unlined

Pretty in pink! Made of recycled nylon lace, Onika has the best of both worlds: sexy and cute. This sheer plunging bodysuit features statement cut-outs with gold-ring hardware, a G-string back, and also has adjustable straps and removable cups. 

Fun fact: for her first lingerie photoshoot, Bebe Rexha wore this bodysuit before the photoshoot to get her feeling more comfortable, and as Bebe told WWD, Bebe Rexha is discussing her lingerie. Her current favorite is the Onika bodysuit.

Margaritte Unlined

Feel like a rockstar! This push-up balconette bra is all about lace and attention to detail. Margaritte features sexy cleavage with intricate details, gold-ring hardware, and removable pads. Plus, it is made from recycled nylon lace and comes with a matching bikini and cheeky panty. 

Fun bra-fit fact: With Margaritte bra on, you won’t have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction. The wings of this longline bra are wide enough to help secure the bra around the body and avoid it flipping up. The trick here is the support coming from the top back elastic, while the bottom elastic is made a little softer to not dig into the skin.

Ambrey

Ambrey is perfect for layering or wearing on its own. Made of custom lace in a botanical motif, this dark green bodysuit features a high-cut leg line and a thong back for a smooth and seamless feel.  

Spotted: a little triple dart detail on the sides of the lace cups makes sure the bodysuit fits comfortably around the bust. Plus, it’s sewn with soft threads, so it doesn’t rub against the most sensitive area.

Avara Unlined

Bustiers are a big trend of 2021, and Avara is the first cropped bustier we’ve ever made. While this underwire black lace bustier’s floral details evoke a sense of boudoir chic, the pleated-side mesh panels add it some extra edge. Avara comes with a matching high-leg cheeky panty for a full jaw-dropping look.

Fun bustier-fit fact: front and side boning add extra support to the bustier, while mesh panels allow a bit of stretch for more comfortable wear.

RZA’s 36 Cinema Screens Five Deadly Venoms

36 Cinema Reveals Next Screening: Five Deadly Venoms, Next iteration of Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theater on June 12th With live commentary from RZA and Dan Halsted, New Bobby Digital Single to be Unveiled During Screening

RZA’s kung fu streaming series – Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theater – returns this Saturday (June 12th) with a highly anticipated screening of the 1978 Shaw Brothers’ classic: Five Deadly Venoms. The film will be streaming live on 36 Cinema, with live commentary provided by kung fu aficionados RZA and Dan Halsted.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential and enduring films of kung fu cinema’s heyday, Five Deadly Venoms tells the story of a dying kung fu master who instructs his final student to check on the activities of five former pupils, each of whom he taught a deadly style of kung fu: Centipede, Snake, Scorpion, Lizard, and Toad. The student must then team up with one of the other good pupils to destroy the evil ones. Greed, treachery, grueling training sequences, and jaw-dropping fight scenes ensue!

Five Deadly Venoms was actually the first kung fu flick RZA ever saw, introducing him to a genre of film that would have a profound impact on his life. RZA first saw the film at 42nd Street theater in Manhattan in 1979 with his cousin Ol’ Dirty Bastard; they eventually got their hands on the VHS and proceeded to watch the film countless times throughout their adolescence. RZA has credited Five Deadly Venoms for sparking his initial interest in kung fu cinema and culture, which would become a life’s passion and a major aspect of Wu-Tang’s brand and aesthetic.

RZA even sampled dialogue from Five Deadly Venoms on Da Mystery of Chessboxin’ from Wu-Tang’s debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers): Toad style is immensely strong, and immune to nearly any weapon, when it’s properly used it’s almost invisible.

Five Deadly Venoms is the second iteration of Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theater, following the initial screening of Heroes Of The East, another Shaw Brothers classic, in April. With several more screenings slated throughout the summer, RZA will continue to spotlight some of the perennial films of kung fu cinema on 36 Cinema: a first-of-its-kind digital screening platform.

During Saturday’s screening, RZA will also unveil a brand new single from a forthcoming solo project due out later this year. The new single will follow the release of Pugilism, RZA’s first solo single in 13 years, which was announced during the Heroes Of The East screening.

Five Deadly Venoms will stream on 36 Cinema on June 12th starting at 3pm ET, buy tickets here. The screening will be replayed at 9pm ET.

Five Deadly Venoms posters and t-shirts are available to purchase in the 36 Chambers show here.

Watch the Five Deadly Venoms Trailer here.

Mayday Parade Announces Fall Tour with Microwave

MAYDAY PARADE ANNOUNCE HEADLINE TOUR DATES FOR FALL 2021, TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 11

Making their triumphant return to the stage, Mayday Parade are thrilled to announce their upcoming fall headline tour featuring support from Microwave. VIP pre-sale is available starting tomorrow, June 9 at 10 am local time, with general on-sale beginning this Friday, June 11 at 10 am local time. All tickets and additional information are available HERE.

The run kicks off on September 8 in their home state, Florida. Full routing can be found below. We are beyond excited to hit the road once again this September, guitarist Brooks Betts shared. It’s been way too long, and we won’t keep you waiting any longer!

Known for their incredibly high energy live shows, Mayday Parade released Live At Screaming Eagle earlier this year. The 4-track EP was recorded during their October 2020 virtual concert event dubbed the Out of Here Sessions. I love how these songs turned out, frontman Derek Sanders said. Playing them live was a highlight of 2020 for me.

2020 marked a stark departure for the Tallahassee, FL band, who typically play several festivals and hundreds of shows across North America and internationally each year. After spending most of the year apart, the band – Derek Sanders, Brooks Betts, Alex Garcia, Jake Bundrick, and Jeremy Lenzo – got together for two special virtual show events, starting with the Out of Here Session in October, followed by the Anywhere But Here Session which highlighted a front-to-back performance of their 2009 sophomore LP Anywhere But Here. In addition to the headline tour, the band already announced exciting performances at Riot Fest (Chicago, IL), Four Chord Music Fest (Pittsburgh, PA), Furnace Festival (Birmingham, AL), Nova Rock Festival (Austria), Greenfield Festival (Switzerland), Hurricane Festival (Germany), and Southside Festival (Germany), with more to come on the horizon.
