Following the release of their debut EP last year, Bet On You, Toronto-based, alt-indie trio The Man Who returns with a brand-new track, Something To Believe, today via Virgin Records. The anthemic track arrives alongside a powerful remixed version today produced by Calvary. The Calvary remix will be used in an MLB Network piece, New Faces in New Places, that will detail every big name who changed teams this year. The piece will air on Thursday, July 23, and Friday, July 24 on MLB Network as part of Major League Baseball’s return. The remix will also be used in other MLB Network Opening Week coverage placements.
Comprising David Walsh (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Chad Walsh (bass/electric guitar, keyboards, background vocals) and Frank Goerz (drums), The Man Who takes its name from a Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, “The world makes way for the man who knows where he’s going.”BANNE
The Man Who traces its roots back to 2015, when a tour took Toronto-based Chad Walsh to Newfoundland, where he re-connected with his cousin, David Walsh, who was also a musician. The two began a long-distance collaboration, experimenting with vintage synthesizers and throwback hip-hop drum loops. David eventually moved to Toronto, where the two cousins recruited drummer Frank Goerz.
The Man Who spent the most part of last year touring across North America including a support slot with BANNERS. Across all of their songs, The Man Who has already racked up more than 20 million global streams and garnered praise from Clash, Hillydilly, Elicit Magazine, Music Connection, plus many more.

The extensive run will include shows at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City (September 24) and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (October 12). See below for itinerary. Tickets are on sale HERE. Bastille will perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, September 25. The GRAMMY® nominated, Brit-winning band is touring in support of its new album, Doom Days (Virgin Records), available everywhere. Bastille launched the album a show in New York City’s Central Park as part of ABC’s “Good Morning America” Summer Concert series. Check out their performance of the single “Joy” HERE. Last month, fans around the world were awestruck when front man Dan Smith posted a video of himself singing “Flaws” on a giant roller coaster during a recent show at a Stockholm amusement park. View the clip HERE. Doom Days takes listeners on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Album Sales chart and in
the Top 5 of the Billboard 200. In a four-star review, NME said, ‘Doom Days’ is a vivid snapshot of humanity and an imaginative, adventurous leveling up from one of Britain’s most influential bands. If the end times are coming, you could do a whole lot worse than taking its lead and gathering up all your friends, pressing play and partying like it’s 1999.” “Joy” has amassed more than 70 million combined streams globally while lead single “Quarter Past Midnight” is Bastille’s third single to hit No. 1 on the Mediabase Alternative chart. Smith performed a stripped-down version of the track “Bad Decisions,” accompanying himself on piano, as part of Rolling Stone’s “How I Wrote This” series. View the interview and performance HERE.

Marshmello and Bastille’s hit single, “Happier,” has topped charts around the world, with cumulative streams exceeding 3.5 billion. It is certified 5x Platinum in the U.S. and has sold more than 15 million units in the rest of the world. “Happier” held the No. 1 position for three consecutive weeks on Billboard’s BDS and Media base/Top 40 Radio Airplay chart. It has spent 50 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic songs tally.

To date, Loren’s songs have racked up over 50 million cumulative streams worldwide, including 20 million for her recent single, “Queen” Idolator praised the “empowering new single” and noted, “The 16-year-old made a good first impression with the perky ”My Story” and then showed serious pop star potential on the fiery ”Kick You Out.” That upward trajectory continues with the arrival of Queen.” In this interview, Loren told ET Live, “The message of this song was so important for me to get out to my young female fans; to embrace being a strong independent woman.” View the official video for “Queen” HERE.
About Loren Gray
Loren has been obsessed with music her entire life. Growing up in the Philadelphia area, she began playing piano at a young age and spent her childhood listening to everything from classic rock and country to heavy metal and hip-hop. At 15, she uprooted herself and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. After cutting six records as an independent artist, Loren landed a deal with Virgin Records. In August 2018, she released “My Story,” which debuted at #1 on the Spotify Global Viral Chart and now has more than 15 million streams. Writing of the follow-up single, “Kick You Out,” Billboard said, “The song’s contrasting vibe effortlessly shows the true highs and lows that come from being in love.” Loren is currently at work on her debut EP.

Isaac Gracie’s highly anticipated, self-titled debut album is out now via Virgin EMI/Republic Records.
The album was largely produced by Markus Dravs at RAK Studios in London and features eleven tracks, including Gracie’s recent tracks, “Last Words,” “Terrified” and “The Death of You & I.” See the full tracklisting below.
Of his debut album, Gracie says, “Over the course of the two years it took to complete this record, I learnt more about myself and about music than I had in the entirety of my prior life. It was the biggest test I’ve ever undertaken and a winding journey that I won’t forget. To now have the record as a physical representation of a heavy and formative time in my life, that can be traced and re-remembered through listening to it, is an awesome and unique reward for the time and effort and love that was spent.”
In celebration of the album, Gracie is set to embark on a UK tour throughout April, followed by a European tour throughout May. See the full list of show dates below. Tickets are available now here.
23-year-old London-raised singer-songwriter Isaac Gracie has been finding his feet, working out who he is and discovering what he wants since the industry spotlight fell on him. The fuss was caused by a dusty-sounding, careworn home recording of “Last Words” that was uploaded online without expectation and any anticipation of what was to follow. The voice behind it was completely new to the premise of where writing a great song might lead him. Even now he’d tell you that he’s still slowly working it all out, but this debut collection sounds as fully-realized and confident as any of recent memory. Isaac Gracie is a new British voice, poetic in his placement of words and accomplished in their delivery.
Today sees Seinabo Sey release the video for Remember ft. Jacob Banks LINK HERE.
The video was directed by Sheila Johansson and NewLand and premiered on Dazed. Speaking to Dazed about the song, Seinabo explains, It’s about wanting to be remembered for all of the good things, and hoping that you can walk out of a relationship whether it be with myself in time, or with a person feeling a sense of freedom. After writing the song herself, Seinabo teamed up with friend and fellow artist Jacob Banks, who transformed the track into a love song.
Seinabo recently announced her new single, I Owe You Nothing and accompanying b-side Remember ft. Jacob Banks. Both are now available to buy and stream on all platforms via Virgin Records. This announcement marked Seinabo’s first new music in over two years since the release of her critically acclaimed debut album Pretend in 2015.
Listen to/Share I Owe You Nothing and RememberHERE
The new music sees Seinabo crafting songs revolving around the issues about which she has been vocal on social media and in her enchanting live performances: womanhood and feminism, identity, body positivity and an adherence to loving yourself.
Pushing her art to the next level, Seinabo has taken much of the creative direction for the new record into her own hands, spending the past few months in Gambia (her father’s home country) to film music videos and shoot a plethora of breathtaking new images which encompass her new direction. In the I Owe You Nothing video, Seinabo blends the rich, bright colours of local fabrics with confidence that is evident throughout, she explains I figured it’s time I stand up for myself and this is my best way of doing that.
Seinabo rose to critical acclaim in 2015 following the release of two EPs and her debut album Pretend, which TIME magazine called One of the Year’s Best Debut Albums and SPIN named one of the Best Albums of 2015. Certified Gold in Sweden, Pretend earned her a 2015 Swedish Grammy Award for Best Newcomer and Best Pop award the following year.
The boundary-blurring artist has topped the Hype Machine chart five times and racked up more than 400 million global Spotify streams to date, including at least 250 million for the album’s lead single, Younger. Kygo’s remix of Younger climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart. Seinabo spent three years touring the globe in support of the album, stunning audiences with her expressive, soulful voice. She has played festivals such as Way Out West, Glastonbury and Roskilde. Her television performances include Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Later with Jools Holland.
Seinabo will be releasing more music this year and will perform at Stockholm’s 12,000-capacity Globe Arena on Friday, October 5.
Rise Against will kick off their extensive North American Mourning In Amerika Tour with a headline performance at 77 punk festival on July 27. The run, produced by Live Nation, will include a show at Coney Island Amphitheatre in New York City (August 1), a concert with Fall Out Boy at Wrigley Field in the bands hometown of Chicago (September 8), and an evening at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver (September 15). Special guests AFIand opener Anti-Flag will perform at all headline shows. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 30 at LiveNation.com. See below for itinerary.
The band won acclaim for its hard-hitting 2017 performances in support of its eighth studio album, WOLVES. Illinois Entertainer said, the return of Rise Against feels more timely than ever. Houston Press observed, If any rock band could convince their fans to not bury their heads in the sand in 2017 America, it might just be Rise Against.
WOLVES (Virgin Records) debuted at No. 1 on Billboards Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock albums charts. Lead singleThe Violencetopped
the Mediabase Active Rock chart and the follow-up track, House On Fire, is currently in the Top 10 and climbing.
