Melbourne Rockers The Ugly Kings Release New Album ‘Darkness Is My Home’ April 13th

Melbourne rockers The Ugly Kings release their new album Darkness Is My Home‘ on 13th April
The Ugly Kings stunning video for ‘Promised Land‘ is out now.

The Ugly Kings are four powerhouse blues rockers, Russel Clark (Vocals), Christos Athanasias (Guitar), Nicolas Dumont (Bass) and Andy Alkemade (Drums), drawing influence from an eclectic and dynamic musical  background.
They have supported Airbourne on their successful sold out east coast Australia tour in January 2017 with great reviews and Airbourne’s main man Joel O’Keefe saying of the band; “Great show! The Ugly Kings have really got their own thing going on and it rocks! I love all the dynamics, pushing and pulling and then always smashing it out. Great intensity and power.“.
They also supported Rival Sons in 2016 on their first Australia headline side-show in Melbourne & were asked directly by Papa Roach to open for them on both their Melbourne shows in January this year. The Ugly Kings offer a powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene, formulating what can only be described as power blues. Their unique catchy, melodic, groove driven, foot stomping rhythm and riffs lay the foundations for the deep reaching and soulful emotive vocals.

Having one mini-album under their belt already as well as having a full length album and single ready to be released on the Kozmik Artifactz label, they also boast an impressive collection of shows and performances for a young band.

New album ‘Darkness Is My Home‘ is due for release on 13th April, it will be available on Vinyl, CD and digital and can be pre-ordered from here

The Ugly Kings are for fans of The Doors, Jack White,  Black  Sabbath, The Black Keys, Royal Blood and Rival Sons.

Salems Lott Release New Music Video For ‘Shattered to Pieces’

Hollywood based rockers Salem’s Lott have released a new video for the track ‘Shattered to Pieces‘ from their new upcoming album ‘Mask Of Morality‘ to be released on April 6. 2018.

Salems Lott guitarist Jett has checked in with the following comment:

This track is a very universal song as most people have had to deal with the sudden affliction of sickness or loss of those who are close to them and the accompanying forms of grief, anger and acceptance. It’s very different from the band’s previous work and showcases a diversity in the band’s sound.

Sharon den Adel aka My Indigo Releases New Video for ‘Crash And Burn

Lead singer of the rock band Within Temptation, Sharon den Adel aka My Indigo has released a new video for the track ‘Crash And Burn‘, the second single from her solo project.

The first single, also titled ‘My Indigo’, was released last November. Listen here:

Released early 2018, the album ‘My Indigo’ is the beautiful and raw result of two years of retreat, healing and exploration. It was Sharon’s opportunity to get out of the limelight and come to terms with hardships in her personal life, and take a break from the strain of touring the world as the singer of the internationally successful rock band, Within Temptation.

“My Indigo is my blues; my feelings and emotions. Not only negative, but also positive emotions and feeling, but negative feelings often have more impact.”

Even though ‘My Indigo’ is Sharon’s debut as a solo artist, it’s not the first time she released music outside of the band Within Temptation. In 2008, a collaboration with DJ Armin van Buuren titled ‘In And Out of Love’ became an international hit song.

The Rocket Dolls Release New Video Ahead Of Album & UK shows

Grunge rock trio The Rocket Dolls have released a grim video ahead of new album and UK tour this April. The band will be appearing live at Wildfire Festival and Ramblin’ Man Fair.

In the new video ‘DeaDHead‘, The Rocket Dolls vocalist/guitarist Nikki Smash takes on the role of grim reaper to deliver a message of death courtesy of his bosses, played by band mates Benji Knopler (drums) and Joe Constable (bass). Eventually having enough of delivering punishment and the misery it inflicts, Nikki delivers a rose to the crime overlords and punishes them for using him to do their dirty work, giving them a taste of their own medicine!

The Rocket Dolls new music video was directed by Dave Neale & James Eldridge of Wild Stag Studios.

Smash talks about the song,”‘DeaDhead’ is just simply about my battles with depression, battle with drugs and prescription painkillers. After a particular heavy day, I hadn’t a clue where on earth I was, I was actually in a flat downstairs from my own and I couldn’t for the life of me get back to my own. The day after, I realised something had to change. I couldn’t carry on being that reckless, and this song is very much me wearing my heart on my sleeve.

The new album ‘DeaDHead‘ is out 6th April 2018 and is available to pre-order now.
