Mars Red Sky

French psychedelic rockers Mars Red Sky have released a new video for the track ‘The Light Beyond’.

Taken from 2014’s critically acclaimed ‘Stranded In Arcadia’ album, the gallic power trio rockers stay true to their roots. Shot on location in France and Australia, ‘The Light Beyond’ features downtuned fuzzed up guitars, blues soaked doom laden riffage, wandering shaman, flying manta rays and deserts as far as the eye can see. This new video truly amplifies an album which Classic Rock Magazine describes as a “sonic masterpiece”.
Mars Red Sky play a handful of UK shows this June, including a special guest slot in London to EYEHATEGOD at Desertscene Festival.

Shadow Train

Legendary guitarist George Lynch’s long awaited “Shadow Train” project finally comes to light in this all new 18 track deluxe edition two CD set! George’s stellar guitar work, along with vocalist Gregg Analla, bassist Gabe Rosales, keyboardist Donnie Dickman and drummer Jimmy D’Anda, create honest, soulful and meaningful rock, blues and hard rock based music, that makes this release a must have for all George Lynch fans! Songs on this disc are also featured in George’s forthcoming movie “Shadow Nation”, a thought provoking documentary that explores the trials and tribulations that face Native American Indians in our world today.  About the release George says, “I’ve spent over 4 decades of my life pursuing elusive musical aspirations. But for even longer than that, I’ve cared, studied and thought deeply about the human condition and how we interact with each other and the world around us. Fusing these 2 aspirations into one has been a challenge for me throughout my creative life. This is my attempt at bonding the music and the message into one cohesive whole”.

Lunatic

Swedish female hard rock sensations, Crucified Barbara, continue their worldwide takeover with the May 19th release of the new single, “Lunatic #1“, which comes from their latest album, In the Red, on Despotz Records.

Frontwoman, Mia Coldheart says, “This is one of our favorite tracks on the album, it’s fun and powerful to play live and brings energy to the crowd! The lyrics are about being in a team with someone special and together you become unstoppable – invincible! Lunatic is named after one of the best show jumping horses in Sweden, I met his rider Jens Fredricson two years ago and he talked about how much you need to work and dedicate time to reach your goals and the top, and the inspiring meeting with him gave me the final strength and inspiration I needed to give 110% to finish the In the Red album. I thought the name of his best team player would be perfect to name this song. Together all of us in the band made our best album so far.”

Shockwave Supernova

Legendary guitarist, Joe Satriani, announces plans to release his 15th solo studio album, ‘Shockwave Supernova’, on Friday 24th July, making him one of the first to utilise the new “Friday, Global Release Day” for music.

The album will be released on CD, download and 2 LP vinyl.  Satriani’s World Tour begins 17th September in Europe (US Tour planned early 2016).  The UK leg of the European tour starts November 1st at the O2 Apollo Manchester with special guest Dan Patlansky.

It would be easy to call Shockwave Supernova a “masterpiece” or “the last word on guitar” from the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer.  Satch, however, sees it much more personally. He has consistently advanced the artistry of the instrument; an effort he dedicated himself to on 18th September, 1970, the day his idol Jimi Hendrix died.

Recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, California, Satriani assembled the dynamic trio of world-class musicians who had recently been part of his global tour; renowned keyboardist and guitarist Mike Keneally, a veteran of several Satch outings and recordings; along with drumming whiz Marco Minnemann and bass extraordinaire Bryan Beller. “I couldn’t have asked for a better band to help bring these songs to life,” says Satriani.

The album also sees Satriani once again joining forces co-producer and engineer John Cuniberti. Satch and Cuniberti share production on Shockwave Supernova, as they have on numerous albums – their shared history dates back to the guitar star’s 1986 debut album, Not Of This Earth and its follow-up, the platinum-selling, critically acclaimed, Surfing with the Alien.
