The Go-Go’s Documentary Released

2020 CRITICS CHOICE DOCUMENTARY AWARD WINNER ‘THE GO-GO’S’ TO BE RELEASED ON DVD, BLU-RAY, AND DIGITAL FORMATS 

“Club Zero” Official Video Premieres With A Charlotte Caffey, Kathy Valentine & Jane Wiedlin Live Chat On YouTube

“Anyone who still thinks The Go-Go’s are just a footnote in ‘80s music history lessons will come away properly schooled.” – ROLLING STONE

“A treasure trove of archival footage that thoroughly excavates the group’s early punk bona fides.” – NEW YORK TIMES

“A laudably forthright, well-researched and perceptive testament to the power of pop music.” – NPR 

“They created their own space in a male-dominated corner of the music world – in their case, the rough-and-ready LA punk scene, where they formed in 1978 – and transcended it with a mix of sisterhood, spirit and irrepressible pop songs.” – BBC

Multi-platinum Los Angeles rock band The Go-Go’s, featuring Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock, Kathy Valentine and Jane Wiedlin, will see the release of their universally acclaimed, 2020 Critics Choice Award-winning documentary THE GO-GOs on DVD and Blu-ray formats (Polygram/UMe) and through digital download & rental services (Eagle Rock Entertainment) on February 5, 2021. Pre-order the DVD and Blu-ray here.

The Alison Ellwood-directed THE GO-GO’S documentary, which first premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival, aired over the summer on Showtime to rave reviews, achieved a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and won a 2020 Critics Choice Award for “Best Music Documentary” in addition to receiving the honor of “Most Compelling Living Subjects in a Documentary.”

The candid and archive-rich documentary assesses the group’s place in music history and offers full access to The Go-Go’s, including past members as well as longtime members of their inner circle. With their roots in the L.A. punk scene, they were bad girls and genuine punk rockers, and this serious appraisal of their story is the first to set the record straight about their historical ascent to global stardom.  A major highlight of the film focuses on their collaborative efforts in writing a new song, the female empowerment anthem “Club Zero,” which became the first Go-Go’s single in nearly 20 years and hit the Top 10 on the Rock Digital Song Sales chart.

Today, Nov. 20th at 3:00PM PT, Charlotte Caffey, Kathy Valentine & Jane Wiedlin chat live with fans & premiere the song’s official video at 3:15PM PT (which includes footage from the documentary of their performance at L.A.’s legendary Whisky a Go-Go interspersed with other live clips) on The Go-Go’s Official YouTube Channel here.

In June, The Go-Go’s will perform a series of summer 2021 North American tour dates in conjunction with the documentary release. Starting at San Francisco’s Masonic Auditorium, they’ll perform at intimate venues across North America, giving fans a chance to see them up close and personal.

The Go-Go’s skyrocketed to superstardom after they released one of the most successful debut albums of all time, 1981’s Beauty And The Beat, a collection of hook-laden, infectious songs that stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard charts for six consecutive weeks, spawning the hits “Our Lips Are Sealed” (named one of Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Pop Singles) and “We Got The Beat” and also earned them a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist.” Their 1982 follow-up, Vacation, hit Top Ten on the Billboard 200 and featured the Top Ten title track “Vacation.” They have sold over 7 million records worldwide and have the notable distinction of being the only all-female band to write their own songs and play their own instruments on a No. 1 album. In January The Go-Go’s will be honored at the 2021 She Rocks Awards, which pays tribute to women in the industry, as they continue to blaze new trails, kicking down the doors for women in particular.

DREAMERS release new song – True Crime ft. DeathbyRomy

Cosmic-rock band DREAMERS have released “True Crime,” featuring dark-pop provocateur DeathbyRomy, a hook-ridden story of love and betrayal set in the dark magic of New Orleans. The track was co-written and produced by Joywave’s Dan Armbruster and Sir Sly’s Jason Suwito.

“This song is not about the election,” says lead singer Nick Wold.

Listen HERE

“We considered taking this week off of music due to this historic election. But we decided we have to keep the show going,” says Dreamers lead singer/guitarist Nick Wold. “This song is not about politics, it’s about life, and we’ll always continue to make our noise no matter what’s happening in this crazy world. We’ve done constant messaging with headcount.org, Rock The Vote, and others to help encourage everyone to vote, and we hope we’ve made some small impact getting our friends out there to vote and not take this precious democracy for granted.

“This is a love song that takes place in New Orleans, a city I’ve fallen in love with after years of doing shows there. That place is like a jungle and so seductive, where the thick liquid heat and mixture of life brings out your animal nature. It has a decadent mix of Louisiana Voodoo, French, Spanish and West African flavors and people play music outside everywhere you go. As we bounced through the streets one night we met a male witch who taught us how to do an incantation asking the Santeria spirit Elegua for anything we wanted – we partook in the ritual and this song is inspired by that delirious encounter. I was in a relationship at the time and experiencing some conflict, and while I can’t share my exact wish, the ritual was an attempt to resolve it. That night inspired the song, which is about the terrible things the crimes that we can do to each other in the name of love.”

True Crime ft. DeathByRomy is the follow-up to Heat Seeker ft. grandson and the band’s top ten alternative hit Die Happy.

ABOUT DREAMERS

Los Angeles-via-Brooklyn band DREAMERS features a unique brand of music that combines grunge, modern electronic pop, and 70s punk. The trio have spent the past few years touring non-stop, from small clubs to massive arenas to festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot, Firefly, Reading and Leeds. Along the way, Nick Wold, Nelson and Jacob Wick have shared stages with the likes of X Ambassadors, The 1975, Bleachers, Stone Temple Pilots, Catfish and The Bottlemen, and Weezer, while garnering coverage from Fader, Entertainment Weekly and Paste, among many others.

In 2016, the band released their debut full-length album This Album Does Not Exist, which spawned a top 10 Alternative radio hit, the electro-sprinkled pop gem “Sweet Disaster.” Three other songs also charted nationally: the ’90s throwback “Drugs,” the crooning “Wolves (You Got Me),” and the soulful, brisk power-pop of their single “Painkiller.” In 2018 the band released a pair of EPs, LAUNCH and FLY, and in 2019 released LAUNCH FLY LAND, their second full-length album that spawned the alternative radio hit “Die Happy.” In 2020, the band released the hook-heavy Heat Seeker ft. grandson along with a visually-captivating live-action music video directed by lead singer Wold (Watch HERE), an animated sequel featuring sci-fi, mysticism, religion and rock, inspired by the animation of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and 1981’s cult classic Heavy Metal (Watch HERE), and a Covid quarantine rendition featuring special guests grandson, Robert Delong, Joywave’s Daniel Armbruster, UPSAHL and Bikini Trill’s Tony Stern for a special isolation version of the single (Watch HERE)

About DeathbyRomy

Singer, songwriter, and dark-pop provocateur DeathbyRomy pays attention to every last detail. She pours both pain and euphoria into her catchy but heavy music, pitting electronic melodies and propulsive beats against hypnotic vocals and deeply personal lyrics. Now 20 years old, the Los Angeles-born Romy Flores wrote her first song at age 5 and began releasing her music at 15, mining inspiration from the iconoclastic artists she was raised on (The Beatles, Björk, Kanye West, to name a few). With her 2018 debut album “Monsters,” she soon drew an avid following and found countless fans turning up to her shows adorned in her signature eye makeup. Her Capitol Records debut, 2019’s “Love u to Death” EP, was short but sickly sweet, emphasizing her unique interweaving of rap boldness, electronic innovation, and raw rock n roll passion. As Romy’s sound has taken shape, so has her DeathbyRomy persona: the Harajuku punk fashion, the corpsepaint-like makeup, and her hard-earned, utterly badass confidence. Stay tuned for more new music coming soon.

The Fratellis Announce Global Music Competition

MULTI-PLATINUM AWARD-WINNING SCOTTISH ROCK BAND THE FRATELLIS ANNOUNCE GLOBAL MUSIC COMPETITION TO GIVE AN UP-AND-COMING ARTIST OR BAND THE CHANCE OF A LIFETIME

WITH COVID-19 HAVING SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE ARTS; THE FRATELLIS PROVIDE SUPPORT TO THE MUSIC COMMUNITY AT A TIME WHEN IT NEEDS IT THE MOST

Multi-platinum, award-winning Scottish rock band, The Fratellis, announced their global music competition on October 19, to give one unknown music artist or band a platform to accelerate their path to stardom. This once-in-a-lifetime prize features a studio session to record the artist or band’s winning single, which will be mixed by The Fratellis’ producer/mixer, Tony Hoffer (Angels & Airwaves, Fitz and the Tantrums, Elle King); and a chance to win a worldwide deal to release a single with Cooking Vinyl records.The winner will also get the opportunity to work with The Fratellis themselves, including one-on-one time with the band through an online masterclass, and a money-can’t-buy slot on a virtual upcoming Fratellis gig (date TBA).

To get involved, upcoming talent are invited to submit their tracks via @Vype_worldwide Instagram page, with both the shortlist and the final selection being chosen by The Fratellis themselves. The entire experience will be professionally marketed, including the creation of a music video of the unknown talent’s record. A behind-the-scenes style video with The Fratellis will also be shared across The Fratellis’ and Vype’s social channels for the world to see.  The competition is live from October 19-28, and applicants must read the T&Cs (+ Privacy Notice) before getting started. The winner will be chosen on November 2.  Watch the full commercial HERE.

“We’re proud to be working with Vype to give a new artist the chance to work with some of the most talented professionals in the music industry…and The Fratellis! Getting our first proper single released through a big label was a huge deal for us so it will be exciting to help a new artist achieve this milestone and hopefully see them go on to have a long career in music,” says The Fratellis.

The Fratellis are a multi-platinum Scottish rock band from Glasgow, formed in 2005, consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Jon Fratelli, bassist and backing vocalist Barry Fratelli, and drummer and backing vocalist Mince Fratelli. The Fratellis recently announced their sixth studio album titled Half Drunk Under a Full Moon, to be released on April 9, 2021, alongside the launch of a UK and European tour. The album features the single, “Six Days In June,” which released earlier this year. A theatrical blast of pop joy, “Six Days In June” swings on brass, kick-drum and features Jon Fratelli’s trademark falsetto vocals. Listen to “Six Days In June” HERE.

Success came quickly to The Fratellis, who formed in Glasgow in 2005.  Arriving a year later, their debut album, Costello Music, which contained the globe-conquering hit “Chelsea Dagger,” quickly went double-platinum and led to The Fratellis winning the Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act in 2007. A successful second album, Here We Stand, followed in 2008, but this whirlwind of success came at a cost, and by the end of the decade the trio were forced into indefinite hiatus, burned out from their relentless life on the road.

Since reforming in 2012, The Fratellis have been on a continuous upward trajectory, finding themselves enjoying a more sustainable type of success. They have steadily regained their live following thanks to a new generation of Fratellis fans all over the world. Half Drunk Under A Full Moon finds the trio entering their third decade at ease with who they are and where they are: a band who have not only survived but thrived, and are currently making the best, most confident, most ambitious music of their career.

Nothing But Thieves Releases New Single – “Impossible”

Southend five-piece Nothing But Thieves have announced the release of new single Impossible, which is available now. The song follows recent singles Is Everybody Going Crazy? and Real Love Song and is taken from their forthcoming third album Moral Panic. They have also announced a huge UK, Ireland and European tour for Autumn 2021, including a headline show at London’s The O2.

THEIR NEW ALBUM, MORAL PANIC, WILL BE RELEASED ON OCTOBER 23RD.

LISTEN: IMPOSSIBLE

Nothing But Thieves are no strangers to powerful anthems, and with Impossible, they’ve written another vast soundscape. Produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Wolf Alice), Impossible is an exuberant track opening with raw emotion before launching into a huge chorus full of elated melody and affecting lyrics of hope and passion. The band says,

“In a way ‘Impossible’ is the complete antithesis of everything else on the album, which has a lot of anxiety and confusion about what’s happening on this planet. This became the opposite, zooming into one person’s head, just being lifted up and transported by a feeling of possibility and hope. It was a moment of relief that both we and the album needed.”

Recent single Real Love Song was included as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World before being added to the B List on Radio 1 and has already achieved 3.5 million streams worldwide. Richly anthemic and wildly grandiose, it builds triumphantly with a hymn-like euphoric melody alongside singer Conor’s poignant almost operatic vocals. Amidst mesmerising animations and a gritty performance from the band themselves, the Basak Erol directed video showcases the dreamlike story of three characters seeking love in the wrong places.

Remaining on the Radio 1 Playlist for 8 weeks, as one of the longest running tracks on their playlist, Is Everybody Going Crazy? was the band’s biggest Airplay hit to date, achieving almost 12 million streams worldwide and welcomed the exciting return of Nothing But Thieves. A gritty dark rock song, lyrically it discusses a fractured, barely recognisable civilisation and desire for escapism, which proved curiously relevant to the world right now.

Real Love Song, Is Everybody Going Crazy? and recent release Unperson is the band’s first new music since their 2018 EPWhat Did You Think When You Made Me This Way, their 2017 acclaimed album Broken Machine, which charted at #2 in the UK album chart, and their debut self-titled album Nothing But Thieves. Their third album Moral Panic will be released on 23rdOctober, with the pre-orders now live here and Unperson available as an instant grat.

The past few years have been quite a ride for Nothing But Thieves. Amassing over 700,000 album sales and 750 million streams so far, they have built up a loyal and wide following for their impactful alt rock sound, cementing themselves as one of the best current rock bands in the world. Selling 150,000 tickets on their last album campaign, which included a sold-out show at London’s Alexandra Palace and selling out their entire worldwide Broken Machine headline tour, their success has been global.

The band have performed on TV shows such as The Late Late Show With James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, after their debut became the bestselling debut from a UK rock band in the US in 2015 and played packed out international shows from Poland to Amsterdam, where they headlined an arena to 6,000 fans. After intimately debuting new songs at Tufnell Park Dome earlier recently for a BRITs/War Child gig, they were set to tour internationally earlier this year, including a show to 6,500 people at Moscow Adrenaline Stadium.

They have now announced a brand new UK, Ireland and European tour for Autumn 2021, including their biggest ever headline London show at O2 Arena. Tickets go on sale on Friday 18th September at 9am, with pre-sale tickets available from Wednesday 16thSeptember at 9am for all pre-orders of ‘Moral Panic’. Full dates are as follows:

South of Eden Dancing With Fire

South of Eden – “Dancing With Fire”

SOUTH OF EDEN RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR “DANCING WITH FIRE”

After their announcement that they have officially signed to Lava/Republic Records, Columbus, OH four-piece South of Eden release the official music video to their new single “Dancing With Fire.”

Watch the official music video for “Dancing With Fire” HERE!

On the music video the band said “ ‘We wanted this to be a personality piece, and with all of us in quarantine we knew the best way to do that was to show what we have accomplished leading up to this release. John Payne, our media man, has been following us around for the last two years! The best thing to show with raw music is raw footage.” The song’s official music video follows the band through months on the road including the band’s first label performance (look out for a cameo by LAVA’s own Jason Flom). It includes footage from South of Eden HQ in Columbus, OH and shows the band in their natural habitat.

Rip-roaring riffs abound on this incendiary and irresistible anthem. Helmed by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Greg Wells [Adele, Twenty One Pilots, Deftones], hyper-charged guitars and thunderous percussion collide with towering falsetto as the refrain soars to the heavens and back. Emerging with a scorching sound of their own, the boys siphon grunge melody into classic rock-style virtuosity with unapologetic attitude and a whole lot of grit. On the song the band noted: “We knew we wanted our first release to showcase our personalities, both in the music and the visual. “‘Dancing With Fire’ is just that; personality. It’s a song about conflict, and to us that conflict is being a bunch of twenty-two-year-olds attempting to make it as a rock band in unprecedented times. We’re excited to see how people interpret the song into their own lives.”

Listen to “Dancing With Fire” HERE (via LAVA/Republic Records.)

South Of Eden—Ehab Omran [lead vocals, acoustic guitar], Justin Young [lead guitar, vocals], Tom McCullough [drums], and Nick Frantianne [bass]—channel timeless rock ‘n’ roll energy through a modern perspective. Making waves as they shared bills with Puddle of Mudd and Red Sun Rising, graced the stage of rock mecca Sonic Temple and Epicenter in 2019, and recently performing with everyone from Foo Fighters to System of A Down. LAVA founder Jason Flom caught wind of the band and signed them the same year. Now, the group reinvigorate rock on their forthcoming 2020 debut for LAVA/Republic Records.

NEEDTOBREATHE – “Survival”

GRAMMY® Award-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE have released “Survival” (feat. Drew & Ellie Holcomb), the third track off of their forthcoming album, Out of Body. Watch an accompanying visualizer for the song HERE. Additionally, the band has announced the album will arrive on August 28, 2020 via Elektra Records/Centricity Music. Out of Body is available for pre-order and pre-save starting today HERE. Fans who pre-order the album will receive immediate downloads of “Survival”, as well as previously released tracks “Hang On” and “Seasons”.

“We met Drew & Ellie years ago backstage at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado. We fell in love with them… and to date they have toured with us more than any other band,” the band shared. “They have worked longer and harder than any other artist out there, and will be the first to admit that they nearly gave up a number of times. If there was ever a song to collaborate with them on, it’d be ‘Survival.’”

On Out of Body, the platinum-certified trio—Bear Rinehart [vocals, guitar], Seth Bolt [bass, vocals], and Josh Lovelace [keys, vocals]—examine life, family, and friends through a youthful prism. The guys take stock of not only two decades as a band, but also first-time fatherhood and the future over a rich soundtrack of soulful rock with stadium-size scope and poetic intimacy. After spending a week at a beach house in Charleston to gather thoughts and ideas, the trio headed to Nashville, to record alongside producers Cason Cooley and Jeremy Lutito. As they cultivated a team atmosphere, the songs organically came to life.

Out of Body was introduced in April with the release of the anthemic lead single “Hang On” and ballad “Seasons”. American Songwriter claimed, “‘Hang On’ could easily be the next summertime sing-along,” and E! News praised the track as “The sort of anthem we all need right about now.” “Hang On” has already soundtracked a national campaign for the PGA Tour’s Impact Initiative and been featured in the season finale of American Idol. Watch the track’s lyric video HERE.

Out of Body follows 2016’s H A R D L O V E, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Current Album Sales Chart, and featured the gold-certified title track “Hard Love”.

About NEEDTOBREATHE:

GRAMMY® Award-nominated NEEDTOBREATHE have mounted a steady ascent to the top of the charts and packed arenas everywhere. Formed in 1998, the group attracted a loyal grassroots following with their full-length debut Daylight [2006] and its follow-up The Heat [2007].

Two years later, The Outsiders became their first Top 20 entry on the Billboard Top 200 before eventually going gold. During 2011, The Reckoning landed at #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #6 on the Top 200. In addition to bowing at #3 on the Top 200, 2014’s Rivers in the Wasteland yielded the platinum-selling Hot 100 hit “Brother” [feat. Gavin DeGraw] and “Multiplied,” which garnered their first GRAMMY® nod. Meanwhile, H A R D L O V E [2016] marked their highest chart bow yet, debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top Current Album Sales Chart, as the title track “Hard Love” [feat. Andra Day] scored a gold plaque.

Along the way, they headlined and sold out iconic venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, The Greek Theatre, and Ryman Auditorium, to name a few. The group picked up a pair of nominations at the Billboard Music Awards, and received praise from People, Rolling Stone, Forbes, and more. Now, NEEDTOBREATHE reflect the freedom of youth on their seventh full-length offering, Out of Body [Elektra Records/Centricity Music] over a rich soundtrack of soulful rock with stadium-size scope and poetic intimacy.

Volbeat – “Die to Live”

VOLBEAT SECURES 8TH #1 RECORD ON THE MAINSTREAM ROCK SONGS CHART
WITH “DIE TO LIVE

BAND NOW HAS THE MOST #1s BY A EUROPEAN BAND

7th STUDIO ALBUM, REWIND, REPLAY, REBOUND, OUT NOW VIA REPUBLIC RECORDS

Volbeat’s latest single, “Die To Live,” is currently #1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart. The Danish band’s latest single is their 8th to reach the top of the chart, racking up more #1 songs in this format than any other European artist. The honor was previously held by U2, who’s record Volbeat tied last August when their single “Last Day Under The Sun” became their 7th number one on the chart. Find more information via Billboard here.

Tickets and information for Volbeat’s “Rewind, Replay, Rebound World Tour” are available here.

Volbeat recently debuted a new video documenting their 2019 called “Die To Live – The Year In Volbeat” which features footage from their sold-out European tour, their US summer trek on The Knottfest Roadshow, and the filming of the music video for “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon)” which was directed by Adam Rothlein at Ghost Atomic Pictures and taped at Futura Studio in Roslindale, MA. The song and video both feature appearances by Clutch’s Neil Fallon, as well as Raynier Jacob Jacildo and Doug Corcoran of JD McPherson’s band.

The band’s seventh studio album Rewind, Replay, Rebound is out now. For the album, Volbeat— Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Rob Caggiano (guitars), Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass), and Jon Larsen (drums) —build upon the distinct, psychobilly, punk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll sound they are known for while reaching for new creative summits. “The whole point for us going into the studio, is because you still have something to prove — not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself,” says Poulsen. “We would not be able to do this record if it wasn’t for the work we have done in the past. No matter how old the band gets or how many records we do, there is always going to be that signature sound.” Rewind, Replay, Rebound is available on all formats here, including a 2 CD deluxe edition, a special deluxe edition box set, and transparent and blue colored vinyl, numbered and limited to 1,000 copies each.

Rewind, Replay, Rebound was produced by long-time collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Rob Caggiano and Michael Poulsen. This marks the first studio album with Kaspar Boye Larsen on bass. To achieve the album’s sound the band also drew upon a myriad of guests including backing vocalist Mia Maja and the Harlem Gospel Choir, who both return after appearing on 2016’s Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie. Ultimately, Volbeat has not lost their passion to create and progress. It’s that which keeps them hungry — and musically honest on the new album.

VOLBEAT emerged from Copenhagen in 2001. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to hard rock’s upper echelon with endless touring, including opening for Metallica, Motorhead and Slipknot, and a string of six beloved full-length albums. Their 2010 album Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, which features hit singles “A Warrior’s Call” and “Heaven Nor Hell,” has received RIAA Gold Certification. 2013’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, which includes the Grammy-nominated “Room 24,” bowed at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release, marking the highest U.S. chart entry for a Danish act since 1997. A distinction that Volbeat topped in 2016 when Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie debuted at #4. The band also released Let’s Boogie! Live At Telia Parken, a concert film and album documenting their landmark 2017 Copenhagen show in front of 48,250 fans, the largest show a Danish band has ever performed in Denmark.

“This EP is a meditation on love, loss, and finding your place in the world,” says X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Harris.  “Searching for a purpose, for a place where you Belong. Sonically, we took a  deep dive into our Dad’s prized record collection and drew a lot from our favorite 60s & 70s soul/ R&B / and rock records. The emotion and simplicity of music from this era has always inspired us on a very deep level.”
