Gov’t Mule have released the live audio of ‘Endless Parade‘ taken from their forthcoming live album and film package, ‘Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theatre‘ out June 28th via Provogue / Mascot Label Group.

Talking about the song, Warren Haynes says; “One of my favorites. This version of Endless Parade captures the moody, mellow, bluesy side of Government Mule. Cool conversational interplay throughout the ending that’s different every night.”

Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theatre‘ features more than 5 hours of live music including a full-length concert film, interviews with the band, behind-the-scenes footage, photos shot by Danny Clinch over the years, and more. This is the first time that Gov’t Mule’s updated stage set and production have been filmed, bringing the excitement and spectacle of a Gov’t Mule show directly into fans’ homes.

The film, directed by renowned music photographer and director Danny Clinch (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Foo Fighters, Phish) in a 9-camera shoot, was captured during two special nights at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, on April 27th and 28th, 2018..

The title, Bring On The Music, taken from Gov’t Mule’s song of the same name that touches upon the passing of time and appreciating life’s journey, is a nod to the band’s treasured relationship with their fans. The Capitol Theatre has been the backdrop of many unforgettable shows for the band and is one of Gov’t Mule’s favorite venues to play. Inviting longtime Mule photographer and friend Danny Clinch to direct the film was also something of a destined choice, as Clinch’s relationship with GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, producer, and revered guitarist Warren Haynes pre-dates the band’s formation. A wide-ranging song selection from Gov’t Mule’s acclaimed catalog is featured on the releases.

The Spanish Hard Rockers GÜRU has returned to the present with its new video clip Quédate, song written and produced by David Palau and belonging to his third studio album RED.

This video directed by Sergi Milà, aims to reflect the duality between the inner personal world and the artistic exterior of each one of us. The musicians, with their lights and shadows, show the personal wear that the artist suffers due to his audience and the fragility that this entails with time. A story never before told through the harrowing voice of Dagarod.

On the verge of celebrating its 10 years of existence, GÜRU has wanted to release this last video clip ‘Quédate‘ before entering the studio again to prepare its next record.

Jack Hues and Nick Feldman collectively known as Wang Chung –  present the 2019 re-recording of their global 80s hit ‘Everybody Have Fun Tonight‘ featuring the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

Wang Chung came out of the post-punk, New Wavescene in the UK going on to achieve global success, selling millions of records. Throughout their 35 year career they have released 6 albums and 2 Greatest Hits compilations.

They have had 6 US Top 40 hits including a number 1 and other international smash hits including ‘Dance Hall Days‘ and ‘Let’s Go‘, and achieved cult status with their soundtrack for William Friedkin’s movie ‘To Live and Die in LA‘, as well as their original song contribution to John Hughes’ legendary movie, The Breakfast Club.

In the process of all of this (and somewhat unintentionally), Wang Chung became part of the contemporary culture of North America. Their huge smash ‘Everybody Have Fun Tonight‘, with its now famous line ‘Everybody Wang Chung Tonight‘ saw the invention of a new US verb: ”to Wang Chung”, the band being name-checked by everyone from Homer Simpson, Austin Powers, Two and a Half Men’s Charlie and Alan Harper, Top Gear’s James May and Richard Hammond, to Frasier Crane to name just a few.

More recently their music has also featured in TV shows like The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, South Park, Glee, This is Us, SNL and The Goldbergs, amongst many others…as well as in movies like Bumblebee, Deadpool and The Fighter. They have also featured in various huge video game titles like Grand Theft Auto:Vice City and in many big commercials. 

Orchesography, the group’s newest offering, is exactly what the title implies: a collection of hits that features the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The duo of Jack Hues and Nick Feldman are just the latest act who have gone symphonic. Both Rick Springfield and Hanson recently released albums that feature orchestral re-workings of their catalog. The Who’s current tour has founding members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey performing with a local orchestra. Other acts like Metallica, Erykah Badu and Brandi Carlile will share the same stage with classical musicians for their respective shows. 

In Wang Chung‘s case, the idea of working with an orchestra was suggested to the duo by August Day Recordings, an indie record company that previously released an orchestral album by fellow New Wave act A Flock of Seagulls. “It very much appealed to me straight away,” Feldman recalls of that proposal. “Jack was slightly less sure about it initially just because he could see that if we weren’t careful, it could end up a bit cheesy. But I felt that that wouldn’t be the case. We’ve been very involved in the whole process, so we made sure it’s a record that we’re proud of and reflects us well.

For this project, the duo worked with string arranger Pete Whitfield who came up with a rough draft of the arrangements and mocked them up on orchestral software. “We’d hear audio drafts of what he was going for,” says Feldman. “Then we’d respond and finesse the arrangements  until we were all happy with them. At which point he then scored them into charts and they would be presented to the Prague Philharmonic, [who] then record them. In the meantime we’re recording some rough backing tracks. We sort of stick them all together and make the sound picture that you hear you on the album.

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has revealed that he’s been diagnosed with throat cancer. The band have cancelled the majority of their upcoming commitments.

Mustaine announced the diagnosis on the band’s Official website, but said he was optimistic about his treatment plan.

It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before,” he said.

“I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.

German Hard Rockers THE NEW ROSES are back to climb the rock Olympus with their fourth studio album ‘Nothing But Wild‘. After successful live appearances all over the world, lately opening for KISS, and the invitation to tour with the legendary Scorpions in summer, the four piece around Timmy Rough is ready to deliver the long awaited follow up for ‘One For The Road‘ (2017), which hit the top 20 in Germany.

The band on ‘Nothing But Wild‘: “On Nothing But Wild, we fully concentrated on catchy songs with big melodies. Our goal was to record a strong and energetic Rock’n’Roll album without any frills and fillers. Simply true, simply loud, simply wild!”

For all those who can’t wait for the release of the album, the band released the first single from the album – ‘Down By The Riverlast Friday 14th June. The single is the ultimate soundtrack to your rock summer!

Says singer Timmy Rough: “Most of the band members grew up near river Rhine. Needless to say that we spent most our youth at the river. A sixpack of beer, a cassette tape deck and a girl you can fall in love with immediately…and the river. That was all we needed. That’s the attitude we put in ‘Down By The River‘. Probably it will be played on any radio at any river and becomes the soundtrack of somebodies summer…”

After an intense touring schedule over the last several years THE NEW ROSES achieved something that very few German rock acts ever accomplish international success. They played over 300 club and festivals shows all over Europe with HELLFEST (FR), SWEDEN ROCK (SE); MASTERS OF ROCK (CZ), HARDROCK HELL (UK) and the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FESTIVAL to name a few. They will be back in the UK this year.

Philadelphia’s Corners of Sanctuary (COS) has released a lyric music video for their latest single ‘Falling Through the Cracks‘. The new song is the second this year to feature singer Ryan Michael, following March’s release of ‘Children of the Night‘.

“Our goal is to have a few one-off releases coming throughout the year,” said COS guitarist Mick Michaels. “And Falling Through the Cracks is number two…” he continued. “We do have plans for a couple more tracks to be completed and look to have them all end up on an EP sometime in September….this is along with working on a new album,” Michaels added.

In addition, the band just completed a short tour in the New England area plus has a string of shows this summer including more dates on the East Coast that will include supporting Grim Reaper in August and Canada’s Iron Kingdom in November.  COS will also be appearing at the Whiskey Ago-go supporting the Iron Maidens in September during their third West Coast tour.

COS also looks to release their sixth full-length album, ‘Heroes Never Die‘, in 2020 and hopes to schedule a second run of shows in Europe in support.

“Between everything else, we are nailing down the new stuff for the album as much as we can,” said COS bassist James Pera. “We are down to the vocals at this point.  Things are coming together,” he added. “Another trip to Europe would be amazing…we had such a killer time last year.”

Robert Randolph and the Family Band have just revealed the new video for ‘Baptise Me‘, taken from their upcoming studio album, ‘Brighter Days, which is out on August 23rdvia Provogue/Mascot Label Group. The album was produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Brandi Carlile, and Jason Isbell).

Randolph grew up playing sacred steel music – gospel played on pedal steel guitar – in Orange, New Jersey, and began taking his joyous, gospel-infused music out to clubs, backed by family members who shared not only backgrounds but blood.

The Family Band” is not just a name meant to evoke connections of togetherness. They are an actual family; the group that supports Randolph is anchored by his cousins, bassist Danyel Morgan and drummer Marcus Randolph and his sister, vocalist Lenesha Randolph.
 
Rolling Stone Magazine
voted Randolph as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists and they have earned three Grammy nominations along their journey. It’s no wonder they have picked up an incredible list of artists who have featured on their albums such as; Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, Leon Russell, Doyle Bramhall II, Trombone Shorty, Carlos Santana and T-Bone Burnett.

A prolific touring schedule has seen them hit the road with; Gregory Porter, Carlos Santana, John Scofield, Gary Clark Jr, Trombone Shorty, Buddy Guy, Living Color, The Sheepdogs, Tedeshi Trucks and| Dave Matthews Band amongst others.

They have played Clapton’s Crossroad Festival at Maddison Square Garden three times as well as major festivals across Europe such as Hyde Park Calling (UK), BluesFest (UK), Cognac Blues (France), Festival de Jazz (France), Blues ‘n’ Jazz (Switzerland), RAWA Blues (Poland) and Randolph has also taken on the hugely popular Experience Hendrix Tour with Eric Johnson, Bootsy Collins, Robby Krieger, Taj Mahal and Steve Vai.

“When you think about Stax music and a lot of music from the 70s, especially like the Staples Singers, it was inspirational and you danced you had a good time. That’s what we really wanted to hone in on here: let’s sound good and have a natural good time that will bring listeners along. All of the music that we played in the beginning was what we would play in church. We just turned it into long jams.”

“Over the years I’ve learned how to write these songs that make you feel kind of spiritual and have the gospel roots, just like the great music of people like the Four Tops, Temptations and Ray Charles. It all comes from the same place. We don’t want to sound like them – or like anybody – but that’s the feeling we want to evoke.”

Track listing:

1. Baptise Me
2. Don’t Fight It
3. Simple Man
4. Have Mercy
5. Cut Em Loose
6. Second Hand Man
7. Cry Over Me
8. I Need You
