Finn Askew – Tokyo

Finn Askew will release his debut EP, Tokyo, on November 5 via Capitol Records. As the pre-order for the six-track set launched, the 20-year-old UK artist shared the title track. Delivered in his signature thumping trap-rock style, “Tokyo” tells the story of a high maintenance, emotionally distant woman. Download/stream HERE. Watch this visualizer HERE.

“Like many of my songs, I came up with the title ‘Tokyo’ before I’d even written it,” explains Finn Askew. “The main lyric being ‘she’s in tokyo again’ ߝ in reality, I’m talking about a girl who’s disconnected from the world, she’s out of touch.”

Askew, a VEVO DSCVR Artist to Watch 2021, will be touring the UK with Mimi Webb this fall. He’ll play his first headline show on November 10 at London’s Courtyard Theatre. Fans who pre-order his new EP will instantly receive “Tokyo” plus the blistering trio of singles he’s released in recent months: “Adidas,” “Paranoia” and “Cherry Bomb.” See below for track listing.

“This EP is really delving into who I am as an artist,” says Askew, whose songs have amassed over 142 million combined global streams to date. “I feel like with the first EP I wanted to show people that I can really do any genre! You can’t really go back once you cement your sound. So this EP is the start of Finn Askew.”

Praise for “Adidas”

Including “Adidas” as one of its “R&B/Hip-Hop Fresh Picks,” Billboard said, “Finn Askew’s new, guitar-anchored song is super catchy, and that’s how he likes it.”Rolling Stone AU noted, “‘Adidas’ is a slick undertaking of smart pop-rock, with powerful guitar riffs and a hook-heavy chorus highlighting his musical versatility.” Acid Stag observed, “Finn Askew continues to show why he’s considered one of the most promising artists going around with his ridiculously catchy new single ‘Adidas.'” View the official video for “Adidas” HERE.

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.

White Lies – New Album

White Lies announced the details of their forthcoming sixth album As I Try Not To Fall Apart, which will be released on [PIAS] on February 18th, 2022.

In addition, today the band share the title track from the album and an accompanying visual.

On the track they share: “We wrote this song quickly, late one night, and often the songs which come quickest are written from the gut and the heart, not with the head. We wanted the melody to feel like a hymn, to give the confessional lyrics weight despite being wrapped up as a pop song. It’s about accepting vulnerability as a man, and knowing it’s ok to be broken. There’s never been a more pressing time to spread the message that it”s ok to not be ok.”

The track is accompanied by a stimulating video directed by James Arden aka The Trash Factory.

Talking about the vision for the video, he says: “The track made me think of people trying to lift themselves out of emotional spirals – navigating feelings of fragility and fighting everyday pressures just so they can keep it ;together – ;and it made me think about how we can be buried and overwhelmed by our feelings and emotions, and how we could explore that, visually.”

Harry from White Lies adds: “Being buried in sand was too mad to pass up. The sensation was really chilling and I was picking sand out of my ears for days, but I’m thrilled with the video, it really carries the message of the song and it looks beautiful.”

Recorded at Sleeper and Assault & Battery studios in West London, the album sees long-term collaborator Ed Buller, who has worked on many of their albums including their debut To Lose My Life, return to produce several tracks along with Claudius Mittendorfer (Weezer, Panic! At The Disco) also producing and mixing the entire album.

Track-list for As I Try Not To Fall Apart is as follows:

Am I Really Going To Die

As I Try Not To Fall Apart

Breathe

Don’t Want To Go To Mars

Step Outside

Roll December

Ragworm

Blue Drift

The End

There Is No Cure For It

X Ambassadors – The Beautiful Liar

Today, multi-platinum-selling rock band X Ambassadors released their third studio album The Beautiful Liar. On The Beautiful Liar, X Ambassadors pay homage to the supernatural radio dramas and books-on-tape brothers Sam Nelson Harris and Casey Harris listened to as kids – sharing a selection of songs that together tell the tale of a blind teenage girl discovering her long-dormant superpowers. X Ambassadors augmented the album’s storytelling component by weaving in a series of interludes that propel its wildly original plot forward. Featuring previously released singles “Adrenaline,” “Okay,” and “My Own Monster,” The Beautiful Liar is available now at all digital retailers via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records.

“For the The Beautiful Liar I wanted to make an album that felt as unhinged as I did, and as the whole world felt around me,” says Sam Nelson Harris. “So Adam, Casey and I carved ourselves a space where we could all be as ugly, weird, funny, and fucked up as we wanted to be. We made the whole album unequivocally ours with the help of our incredible producer Andrew Wells, co-producers Tommy English, Ricky Reed, Nate Merceau, songwriters K.Flay and Andrew Jackson. I hope this album freaks you out, makes you cry, makes you laugh, and makes you feel a little less alone.”

Earlier this week QCODE, a premium leading content studio and podcast network, announced that X Ambassadors singer/writer/producer Sam Nelson Harris has co-created a new podcast, The Beautiful Liar, which he will also star in and produce alongside Interscope Records. Schitt’s Creek’s Emily Hampshire will voice the role of “Shadow” and serve as an executive producer on the podcast as well. This superhero origin story will serve as a companion piece to X Ambassadors’ new album of the same name. The first episode will be available on October 20 on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever podcasts are available with new episodes released each Wednesday. Listen to the podcast trailer.

The idea for The Beautiful Liar podcast was first conceived by brothers and bandmates Sam and Casey Harris who wanted to create an audio drama inspired by superhero comic books about a blind character and her superpowers. Structured by co-creator Minnie Schedeen, the story and format is deeply personal to the Harris brothers. Casey has been blind since birth and the two grew up listening to audiobooks and radio dramas together.

Also released today is a music video for the song “Beautiful Liar.” Partnering with Mathematic, a Paris-based VFX, animation and motion design studio, Sam and the band create a comic book-esque video that ties together the worlds of the new album and the new podcast. Watch the video for new song Beautiful Liar.

Tickets are on sale now for the band’s The Beautiful Liar tour which kicks off October 15th in San Diego, CA at HOB, and will hit North America this fall with dates planned for Europe in early 2022. Scarypoolparty and Taylor Janzen will open the show on all North American dates. For a complete list of dates and to purchase tickets visit here.

The Greeting Committee – Dandelion

Today marks the long-anticipated release of Dandelion, the sophomore album from Kansas City-based alt-rock band The Greeting Committee. Released via Harvest Records, Dandelion finds the four-piece working with esteemed producer Jennifer Decilveo (MARINA, FLETCHER, Bat for Lashes) and mixer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala), delivering a moody and mercurial sound perfectly suited to the album’s emotional terrain. To celebrate Dandelion’s arrival, The Greeting Committee have also shared the video for Make Out, one of the album’s more lighthearted moments. Go listen to Dandelion, and check out the video for Make Out 

The follow-up to The Greeting Committee’s acclaimed 2018 debut album This Is It, Dandelion documents a particularly painful period in the life of frontwoman Addie Sartino, including the grief and inertia she experienced after a devastating breakup. Most of these songs are about feeling like you’re watching your life instead of living it: just going through the motions and feeling stuck and wanting to break out of that, but not really knowing how, she says.

Despite its often-brutal honesty, Dandelion radiates an irrepressible and unbridled energy, thanks in part to the joyful chemistry that The Greeting Committee bring to every track. To that end, the band selected the album’s title due to its suggestion of an unlikely hope. Dandelions are weeds, but depending on your perspective, you can shrug them off or you can choose to see them as a sort of beautiful flower, similar to how we have the choice in what we see in ourselves, says Sartino.

With its fuzzed-out riffs and pogo-ready rhythms, Make Out serves as a bold departure from Dandelion’s heavy-hearted tone. Co-directed by the band and Malik Lemon, the track’s outrageous video finds guitarist Brandon Yangmi facing off in a fantastically chaotic wrestling match featuring Wrestle Yr Friends (a queer wrestling collective based in Kansas City). With Sartino and bassist Pierce Turcotte playing the part of the match’s commentators, the visual makes for a brilliant counterpart to the free-spirited mood of Make Out. For the most part I like to get deep and uncomfortable in my lyrics, but this song is like the Antichrist of that, Sartino says. It’s somewhat of a true tale, about a girl who stuck her tongue out at me at a show in East Virginia and used to send me selfies where she’s in her rollerblades or eating pickles. It was the first time after my breakup that I thought, Maybe I’ll be okay. Maybe life can be fun again, and I won’t be sad forever.

In creating the tracklist for Dandelion, The Greeting Committee made a point of leading their listeners on a cathartic emotional journey. I wanted the record to really show the healing process, starting at a place of desperation and eventually getting to the point of being willing to accept reality, says Sartino. Hailed by Clash as a raw portrayal of post-break-up poignance, the album-opening lead single Can I Leave Me Too? perfectly captures the confusion of heartbreak, while its follow-up Float Away examines how depression warps our self-image. (Released in July, the track earned acclaim from Pop Matters, who likened its sonic elements to the haunted carousel all our minds seem to be stuck riding lately.) And on Ada an August release praised by Earmilk, who noted the band’s warm, welcoming, and vibrant indie rock sound. The Greeting Committee offer up a LGBTQ anthem inspired by a trans woman they befriended years ago, as well as Sartino’s own experience in coming out.

Closing out with the piano-laced reverie of Ten, Dandelion ultimately fulfills The Greeting Committee’s mission of providing their audience with an undeniable sense of emotional solidarity. Over the years we’ve had people come up to us at shows and tell us that our music has saved their lives, which is something we take very seriously, says Sartino. It’s really special to be part of the soundtrack to someone else’s experience, and we want to continue being a source of comfort to our fans and help them understand that they’re not alone.

In celebration of the album release, the band will be on Travis Mills’ Beats 1 Apple Music show and will also collaborate with Fender for a signed guitar giveaway and social takeover.

Volbeat – Servant of the Mind

Multi-platinum Danish band Volbeat announced the release of their eighth studio album, Servant Of The Mind, coming via Republic Records on December 3rd. The new album will be available in standard CD, deluxe 2LP vinyl (in various limited-edition variants, full info below) and a deluxe digital edition. Pre-order the album here.

For Servant of the Mind, the band, which consists of Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Jon Larsen (drums), Rob Caggiano (guitars) and Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass) took their signature heavy metal, psychobilly and punk ‘n’ roll sound up a notch while showcasing Poulsen’s keen ability for songwriting and storytelling.

“I wrote the whole album in three months,” recalls Poulsen, “I was in a good place and mood while at home, and had a captive audience of myself… There are a lot of Volbeat signatures in it. If you go back to the first record and compare it to where we are now, you can hear how the band has developed its style, while keeping the signature sound.”

To coincide with the album announcement, the band has released the new single “Shotgun Blues,” an anthemic track in which Poulsen explores the ghostly events he recently experienced upon moving into a new home. “Every time you move into a house, you bring dead people with you,” he explains. “Weird stuff happens when I move into a [new] house… it’s very otherworldly.” Watch the lyric video HERE.

The album also includes the “double barrel” of Summer songs the band released this past June: “Wait A Minute My Girl” and “Dagen Før (feat. Stine Bramsen).” The former of which became the band’s ninth number one single on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.

Other songs on the album weave intricate and fascinating tales. “The Sacred Stones” tells the story of “an earthly being who has committed himself to the dark side. He is on a mission, speaking to darker forces and fallen angels.” Meanwhile, “The Devil Rages On” looks at the idea of the devil taking human form. Album opener “Temple of Ekur” returns to the ancient themes explored in past songs such as “The Gates of Babylon,” while the epic album closer “Lasse’s Birgita” explores the story of the first witch burnings to occur in Sweden in 1471.

About Volbeat

Volbeat are two decades deep into a career that has found them sharing stages with genre legends like Black Sabbath, Metallica, Motorhead, Slipknot, Megadeth, Anthrax and more. They have racked up nearly three billion cumulative streams over the course of their career, notched a Best Metal Performance Grammy nomination for “Room 24 (feat. King Diamond)” from 2014’s acclaimed (and gold-selling) Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, and have grabbed multiple Danish Music Awards. Not ones to rest on their laurels, their forthcoming album Servant of the Mind, which was written and recorded during the shutdown and quarantine necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, is introspective but pulls no punches and is no less raucous or driving than their previous efforts.

Wait a Minute… Let’s Tour

The band will kick off their “Wait A Minute… Let’s Tour” run, their first US tour in two years, at Atlanta’s The Tabernacle with shows in cities including Oklahoma City, San Diego, and Los Angeles (full dates below). Special guests The Hu, Twin Temple, and Municipal Waste will be joining them for select dates. Tickets for these dates are on sale now HERE. Earlier this week the band also announced their 2022 co-headlining arena tour with Ghost and special guests Twin Temple, coming to cities including Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Houston, and Phoenix (full dates below).  Tickets for the tour, co-Produced by Live Nation and Frank Productions, will be available HERE, Friday, September 24 at 10am local time. Limited VIP packages are also available HERE.

Since forming in 2001, Volbeat has gone from the clubs of Copenhagen to headlining stages around the world, including the famed Telia Parken stadium in Denmark (becoming the only domestic artist to ever sell out the venue). Over the course of seven record-breaking albums the band has picked up number one songs (including nine #1s on the US Mainstream Rock chart and counting, the most of any band based outside of North America), multi-platinum certifications, awards and accolades all over the planet. Their latest album, Rewind, Replay, Rebound, was released on August 2nd, 2019 and has spawned the hit singles “Last Day Under The Sun,” “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon)” and “Leviathan.” A live album featuring songs recorded during the subsequent world tour, Rewind, Replay, Rebound: Live in Deutschland, was released digitally on November 27th, 2020. Most recently, they contributed a cover of “Don’t Tread on Me” to The Metallica Blacklist, with all proceeds from the track benefiting the All Within My Hands Foundation and the Børne Cancer Fonden of Denmark.
