Bring Me The Horizon x YUNGBLUD

Bring Me The Horizon and YUNGBLUD have teamed up for a brand new song titled “Obey.”

The two British modern rock powerhouses released the song Wednesday, premiering it on Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ Radio 1 show.

The song, which is accompanied by a very fitting music video, is about our inability to see control and oppression in society.

Oli Sykes, the front man for Bring Me The Horizon, said, “We consider ourselves free, but only because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about. They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like s*** ain’t f***** up, inform us of tragic statistics like it’s nothing… it’s a weird world.”

The chorus of the song uses Oli’s voice to convey the words of the powers that be.

“There’s nothing to see here, it’s under control. We’re only gambling with your soul,” Sykes sings.

YUNGBLUD added, “They teach us to turn against each other and to fight against our differences rather than embrace and celebrate them. They try to keep us divided because it makes us weaker. We will rise above the hate and the diversion. We will fight for the world we want to be a part of.  We will not obey.”

YUNGBLUD’s thoughts seem to perfectly convey the idea of the music video.

We see Sykes and YUNGBLUD in the control chair of giant robots, walking through the city. When they finally meet, their first instinct is to fight. They’re so similar, yet they believe there can be only one giant, man-controlled robot.

By the end of the video, they see through their reasons to fight, just as YUNGBLUD prophesied.

Bring Me The Horizon wrote the song with additional production from Mick Gordon. It is the third song from the first EP in a series they are calling “Posthuman.”

After directly addressing criticisms for songs that “ain’t heavy metal” on their 2019 album “amo,” they seem to be rocking as hard as ever.

Eric Clapton × Pedrito Martinez – My Father’s Eyes

Today sees widely respected Latin percussionist Pedrito Martinez release a reimagined duet version of Eric Clapton’s My Father’s Eyes” – featuring a collaborative performance with the guitar legend himself. Having the opportunity to work closely with Eric Clapton is the fulfillment of a longtime dream for Pedrito that had its roots at New York City’s Guantanamera restaurant, where Pedrito’s group got started, and where Eric was a frequent guest.

Inspired by getting to know one another, Pedrito had the idea in early 2019 to put together a re-imagined version of Clapton’s deeply personal song “My Father’s Eyes” and send it to the three-time inducted Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member for his thoughts. . Upon receiving the initial recording, Eric Clapton invited the innovative Cuban percussionist to London last year to work together , where he added his own vocals and guitar to My Father’s Eyes and additional guitar contributions to two more tracks that will also be included in Pedrito’s upcoming album, Acertijos, expected to be released in early 2021.

“Pedrito is a genius…working with him has been a revelation to me.” – Wynton Marsalis

“…dizzying rhythmic webs, songs within songs, and the thrill of real Cuban rumba transformed into something as hip and irresistible as great pop.” – Larry Blumenfeld, Wall Street Journal

The Rolling Stones – World Exclusive Store

The rock ‘n’ roll legends that are the Rolling Stones will open a world-first flagship store, ‘RS No. 9 Carnaby’ at 9 Carnaby Street in London’s Soho. The new store, created in partnership with Bravado, Universal Music Group’s merchandise and brand management company, will feature all the hallmarks of the iconic band and include exclusive new fashion and merchandise under the ‘RS No. 9 Carnaby’ brand available in-store and online beginning 9 September 2020. The Rolling Stones said:“Soho has always encapsulated Rock ‘n’ Roll so Carnaby Street was the perfect spot for our own store. We are confident this exciting project that our friends at Bravado have created will be an unrivaled experience for everyone to come to London and enjoy.”

The collections include exclusive and contemporary collaboration pieces for fans of all ages, including men’s, women’s and children’s fashion and accessories.

You can’t always get what you want, but you’ll definitely be able to get what you need. Jointly curated by the Rolling Stones and Bravado, the shop fit follows the brand colours of red and black and the glass floor features lyrics, while the fitting rooms are adorned with iconic album artwork. Mat Vlasic, CEO, Bravado said:“With this innovative partnership, the Rolling Stones add yet another cultural touchpoint to their rich legacy. RS No. 9 Carnaby is the result of years of planning and decades of building one of the world’s most recognized brands. It creates a destination where fans can connect and immerse themselves in the music, style and spirit of one of the world’s most iconic and beloved bands.” For those in the know, the store’s window features a world first soundwave installation – taken from the opening to the 1966 hit track ‘Paint It Black’. One thing is for sure, when this shop opens on 9 September, fans of the band will want to be there.

Sameer Gadhia – Point of Origin

Sameer Gadhia, frontman for platinum selling rock band Young The Giant, is set to launch Point Of Origin, a spotlight feature highlighting hand-picked, culturally-diverse, musical discoveries in the alternative space, airing regularly on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation (ch.36), starting today.

Gadhia explains: “By its very definition, alternative music is supposed to challenge boundaries by providing new and unheard possibilities. Though the sonic landscape is diverse, the limelight has cast a vastly monochromatic field. I am living proof that this is not so, and my aim is to illuminate artists who express the truest definition of what alternative is and should be by identifying what connects us all to our shared love of music. Through this platform, I want to create opportunity for artists of color and help foster a divergent narrative for today and tomorrow’s alternative music scene.”

Hosted and curated by Gadhia, Point Of Originwill focus on one artist over a two-week period by granting heavy, on-air exposure to one song from the artist. This will also be accompanied by commentary from Gadhia on the hand-picked artist and song. The first artist to be featured is Pennsylvania-native and a Pigeons & Planes New Artist to Watch in 2020, binki, who describes his sound as “packed with equal parts riotous funk, cavalier rap, with a bratty-rock swagger.” After creating buzz across the blog circuit, touring with Benee and Still Woozy, binki’s “Sea Sick” will garner its first national radio airplay as the first featured song on Point of Origin. For more information, visit www.pointoforigin.world.

Gadhia had been called “one of the great contemporary rock voices” by The New York Times, he is the son of immigrants from Ahmadabad, India, who came to the U.S. in the 80’s shortly before he was born. Issues of culture and diversity have been something he’s ruminated on for most of his life, both consciously and subconsciously. The band’s 2016 album Home of the Strange deliberately honed in on the modern American immigrant story, a theme that was especially relevant to the quintet as they’re each from different ethnic backgrounds with most being immigrants themselves or first-generation Americans. Gadhia wrote about balancing the two very different worlds of his ethnicity and nationality in an editorial piece for Salon (read HERE), and also had an in-depth conversation with NPR’s Ailsa Chang on the topic for “Weekend Edition” (listen/see HERE).

Young the Giant is currently writing and recording music for their next album, much of which was chronicled in the band’s “Song A Day” project which sees band members sharing music clips with each other over Instagram, culminating with a completed song each Saturday. Fans can watch the process in their Instagram highlights HERE.
SiriusXM subscribers can listen to Alt Nation (ch. 36) and other channels on SiriusXM radios, and those with streaming access can listen online, on-the-go with the SiriusXM mobile app and at home on a wide variety of connected devices, including smart TVs, devices with Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant, Apple TV, PlayStation, Roku, Sonos speakers and more. The SiriusXM app also offers additional features such as SiriusXM video, Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora that listeners can curate themselves, and an On Demand library with more than 10,000 hours of archived shows, exclusive music performances, interviews and audio documentaries.

Come to The Beach

Winnetka Bowling League – Come To The Beach

Today, Winnetka Bowling League releases a seemingly easy-breezy pop song with lyrical twist on “Come To The Beach.”

Listen HERE

“Come To The Beach” will be featured on Winnetka Bowling League’s forthcoming EP entitled CONGRATULATIONS set for release September 18th via RCA Records, along with previously released tracks “Kangaroo” and “CVS.”

With the lyric “Come to the beach, Chill by the sea, See how your heavy life looks from the coast line,” Matthew Koma offers the following about his inspiration for the new song and forthcoming EP:

“’Congratulations’ and ‘Come To The Beach’ are two potentially misunderstood titles to release during a world pandemic that’s encouraging a pause in all traditional social and celebratory normals. But, they were both written pre-pandemic and hopefully they’ll last people through to post-pandemic when we can resume congratulating and going to the beach.”

Koma, the band’s lead singer and front man, wrote and produced The EP. He is an award-winning performer, songwriter and producer. Koma has worked with a diverse range of artists. That includes: Bruce Springsteen, Tiësto, Ryan Tedder, RAC, The Knocks, Shania Twain, Kelly Clarkson and more.

What the Press is Saying About WBL: 

Winnetka Bowling League continues to roll out hands-in-the-air pop/rock anthems at an alarming rate.” Idolator

“Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Matthew Koma is raw and honest, possessing a dry sense of humor that is reflected in both his songs and his mannerisms. Coming from punk rock roots and branching out into hip hop and EDM, his new band, Winnetka Bowling League, is the perfect pairing of deep lyrical content and alternative rock melodies.”V Magazine 

“infectious, hook-laden songs”The Ringer

“”Los Angeles’ Winnetka Bowling League makes music that sounds as good on indie rock playlists as it would on alternative radio. …from the hooky synth lead to a chorus that leaps out of the speakers. Winnetka Bowling League are a band that’s easy to imagine finding big audiences…” – Uproxx

“[“On The 5” is] an undeniably anthemic pop song …it certainly sounds like a hit.” – The Los Angeles Times

Nothing But Thieves New Video

The English rock band Nothing But Thieves released a brand new music video for their song “Real Love Song” on Monday.

Real Love Song” is the second song from their new album titled “Moral Panic.” It follows “Is Everybody Going Crazy?” as the second song from the album, and it was produced by Mike Crossey who has worked with bands like Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, Two Door Cinema Club and The Black Keys.

At almost 3 million streams worldwide, the song breaks love and relationships into pieces. Love isn’t the perfect, romantic tale we hear in songs and see in movies. Conor Mason, lead vocals for the band, calls love “dirty,” saying the love in “Real Love Song” makes him hate himself for days, sitting alone while listening to Nick Cave.

Complete with a warning of flashing images and stroboscopic sequences, the video combines neon lights with animation to tell the story of love in the digital world.

“This is a song within a song and the video, with its nods to the modern relationship and its sensationalized band moments, tell two sides of the same story. Where does the cynicism end and the real begin?” the band said.

Nothing But Thieves has sold more than 700,000 albums and 150,000 tickets in the past few years, including a sellout at Alexandra Palace. They have also performed in the United States for Jimmy Fallon and James Corden on late night television. Though they’ve bene unable to perform live, they have kept the content flowing for their fans on their YouTube channel as all five members of the band record separately from different locations.

“Moral Panic” is available for pre-order now and will be released in October. It will be the band’s first album since their EP titled “What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way” in 2018.

City Morgue – “Hurtworld ’99”

CITY MORGUE ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THEIR NEW MIXTAPE TOXIC BOOGALOO ON JULY 31 RELEASES NEW TRACK “HURTWORLD ’99”

City Morgue announces the release of their new mixtape TOXIC BOOGALOO on July 31 via Hikari Ultra/Republic Records. To coincide with this announcement, City Morgue releases their new song “HURTWORLD ’99” today.

Listen to “HURTWORLD ’99”: HERE

On the track that will appear on their upcoming mixtape, New York’s most dangerous duo further incinerate the lines between rap and rock on this banger. Over a roar of distortion, ZillaKami raps with militant precision before SosMula comes through with his own brand of menacing mayhem.

The last time we heard from City Morgue, they crushed two Rock Albums Charts. Their second full-length offering, CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, captured #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #1 on the Apple Music Rock Albums Chart. The project and its recently released Deluxe Edition featured the legendary Mike Dean as executive producer. As always, they infected rock and rap from the inside out and generated upwards of 100 million streams and 100 million views.

Rising up from the darkest corners of New York twosome of SosMula and ZillaKami depicted the despair, drugs, violence, and sex defining a city in flames on 2018’s CITY MORGUE VOL 1: HELL OR HIGH WATER. For proof, how many groups could land on “10 Best New Rap Songs Right Now” by The Fader (“Lamborghini Getaway”) as well as Revolver’s “75 Best Songs of 2018” (“Sk8 Head”)? Not to mention, Revolver christened the project among the “30 Best Albums of 2018.” Plus iconic GRAMMY® Award-winning Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor professed his fandom on Instagram. Moving one clothing collection after another at light speed, the pair teamed up with famed illustrator Mark Riddick and creative director Joe Perez for merch that sold out in 24 hours. On CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, SosMula and Zillakami spin gothic hood tales, harking back to timeless East Coast hip-hop—yet sharpened by their signature dark metallic edge. New York’s most notorious duo flex their storytelling like never before and hint at a deeper, darker and deadlier narrative.
