Australia’s leading international independent record label, Golden Robot Records continues to grow at an unprecedented pace.

The label is absolutely thrilled to announce that UK powerhouse rock trio rock RavenEye are now part of their ever-growing international roster!

RavenEye recently signed a global deal with Golden Robot Records which will see their highly anticipated second full length album released worldwide in 2019 via Golden Robot Records’ partners in the U.S., Europe and Japan.

RavenEye founder guitarist and vocalist Oli Brown says “We’re very grateful to sign with and now become a part of the Golden Robot family. It’s very important to be with a label that cares about the band and honours our musical vision. GRR is putting everything into making this next record the best one yet for us. It’s exciting times for RavenEye we’ve written so many songs to prepare for this record and now we have a label and the means to create it without any compromise.”

Mark Alexander-Erber Group Founder and President says of signing RavenEyerock is back, well it never went away really, and we at Golden Robot Records have been watching RavenEye from the start. They have all the ingredients of a brilliant rock band but stand above the pack with their attitude, ethic and of course, their killer songs! We couldnt be prouder of having the boys join the family and are looking forward to helping them take over the world!”

By 2014, a then 25 year old Oli Brown had already released four solo albums and toured the world for a decade with such players as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Joe Satriani and others. Classic Rock Magazine described him as ‘one of the best and brightest guitar heroes in the world today.’

Channeling those skills and praise into a fully-fledged band, Oli, along with Aussie born bassist Aaron Spiers and original drummer Kev Hickman formed RavenEye  and have been slamming audiences with their signature heavy riffs and high energy live show all over Europe ever since along with Hickman’s replacement Adam Breeze.  With nods to influences such as Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden and QOTSA, RavenEye punch out big riffs, even bigger harmonies and the world has taken notice. Releasing the ‘Breaking Out‘ EP digitally in 2015, quickly followed by their debut album, ‘Nova‘, in 2016 they received universal praise from the global rock press and made a solid impact on US Active Rock Radio.

The band’s two releases and a non-stop touring ethos have established RavenEye as a powerful force in British rock and saw them secure major support tours around the world including opening for Slash w/ Myles Kennedy, The Darkness and Joe Satriani in the US, Aerosmith, Slash w/ Myles Kennedy, Bush, Halestorm, Blues Pills and Deep Purple across Europe as well as Kiss on their 2017 European arena tour.

RavenEye have also headlined their own tours across Europe and America as well as performing at major international festivals such as Download (UK, France & Spain) Reading and Leeds fests in the UK, Rock Am Ring and RockAm Park in Germany, Hellfest in France, Azkena Rock Festival in Spain, Rock For People in the Czech  Republic, Isla Del Blues festival in Spain, QStock Festival in Finland and, Louder Than Life and Aftershock Festivals in the US and Maximus Festival in Brazil and Argentina plus the first Fibrofest Charity Festival

RavenEye are currently recording the follow up to ‘Nova‘ in the Welsh countryside and are gearing up for a massive 2019 which will see their Golden Robot Records debut and a tonne of touring!

Their incendiary live show and compelling tunes have captivated crowds the world over and put them on the map as a ‘must see live’ band. Fans won’t have to wait too long to see them as the band are making their second appearance on Shiprocked in January 2019 and have just confirmed a full UK headline tour for February/March which will be announced soon.  Extensive US and European tours and festivals are currently being scheduled for the rest of 2019.

Falling Red released ‘Lost Souls’ earlier this year to some fantastic feedback from the press and public.They’ve now released the single ‘Enemies‘ off the album.

This year has seen the guys tour up and down the UK at events such as HRH Sleaze and Amplified Festival with one BIG show left for 2018 in their hometown of Carlisle at The Brickyard. The hometown shows always sell out and this Christmas Bash will be no different with special guests ‘Stevie Pierce & The Hooligans’ This will close the year for Falling Red with 2019 looking busy and some new material may be on it’s way.

The album ‘Lost Souls’ is an eclectic variety of kick ass tunes, the intention was always to write an album with something for everyone and the guys have done just that, they did it on their own terms, with no theme, no concept and created a monster. Here’s what they have to say about the track

Enemies was written from our own personal perspective of all the two faced people we have met over the years within our personal lives and in our music career. As if life ain’t hard enough when those you need turn out to be the worst, from having played it live the crowds singing back loudly shows a connection to the content of the song’ The song includes lyrics like You’re the deceiver, you made us a believer with all the lies you told `and ‘Who needs enemies, when I got friends like you!’

Rising Cambridgeshire based rockers Hollowstar look set to close out the year in spectacular style, following up their recent airtime on Planet Rock and BBC Radio 2 with the release of yet more brand new music and a UK wide tour supporting the phenomenal Dan Reed Network. The latest single, ‘Let You Down’, will be made available on all digital platforms on October 19th, with physical copies also available via the band’s online shop.

The track is described by frontman Joe Bonson as, “a message about going out and grabbing what you want after a period of indecision or hesitation in your life. A rallying call to take to your passions wholeheartedly so as to not let yourself or others down.

On the whole ‘Let You Down’ retains much of the signature Hollowstar sound their fans have come to know and love, combining the raw impact of dual lead guitarists Phil Haines and Tom Collett with lyrics that are equal parts catchy and meaningful, creating an end result that reflects the band’s classic rock influences whilst showcasing a distinct modern flair. The location and format of the accompanying music video perfectly befits the intent behind the track, sticking solely to a live performance set in a studio provided by the amazing Alton Wahlberg Music; a location set up with the pure intent of helping up-and-coming musicians thrive doing what they love.

The release comes just weeks before the band head out for their second major tour this year, which sees them supporting none other than Dan Reed Network alongside Glaswegian rock group Mason Hill.

The tour spans throughout November and includes no shortage of appearances throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Beyond that, Hollowstar have also announced a headline show in the run up to the New Year in addition to appearances at Giants of Rock in Minehead and Planet Rock’s Winter’s End Festival.

Dublin, Ireland blues rockers Samarkind premiere new music video ‘Thru That Door‘.

Containing a heavy uncompromising monster riff and very hard blues in its lyrical content; ‘Thru That Door‘ is the third single to be taken from Samarkind‘s impressive debut album and was produced by Alwyn John Walker, David Paul Byrne and Michal Kulbaka, with mastering by Jon Moorehead. The new music video was filmed in a unique building in Dublin’s inner city by Ian James White.

With Samarkind‘s debut having received high praise from the fans and press /media, vocalist David Paul Byrne reflects on the success and his thoughts on the digital era vs his time in 80’s rock group Assassin, “I was stunned by the positive reaction Samarkind‘s debut album received, we had to pinch ourselves.. it just goes to show the power of the fans and what social media can do. Although there are some downsides attached to it, social media for Samarkind has been wonderful. It’s such a thrill when your cds and merchandise are selling all over the world; simply put it would never have happened back in the day and we have got digital platforms to thank for that“, says Byrne.

As good as things are right now, things certainly aren’t as wild as when I started out as a green 16-year-old“, confesses the vocalist. “I remember playing a show in Dublin with WASP with myself watching side stage. It got to that part of the show when they decided to spark up Blackie’s famous rocket powered codpiece and the next thing you know there was a mighty bang KABOOM, and everything went everywhere… literally! It was a sight to behold. Nowadays it’s a bit more serious and health conscious for sure, but the music and the laughs I have with the guys in the group more than makes up for it!”

So it’s not just the luck of the Irish that’s caused such a positive outcome for the multi-national Dublin based rock band. Samarkind‘s self-titled debut album oozes confidence and tracks that wear classic influences on their sleeves but always looking forward to what’s up ahead. “As creative artists know, when you surround yourself with positive inspiring musicians and passionate music fans, it’s impossible not to be motivated into wanting to write new material.

Does that mean we can expect a second album?

Oh yeah, for sure“, confirms Byrne, “we’re currently writing new songs and in pre-production…just try and stop us.

Samarkind live:

2nd Nov – Duisburg, Steinburch
3rd Nov – Dessau-Kochstedt, Gruner Baum
30th Nov – Grimsby, Yardbirds (w/ Massive Wagons)
10th Jan – Dublin, Whelans
25th May – Carlisle, Call Of The World Festival (w/ The Wildhearts)
13th July – Prestwich, SOS Festival
25th Aug – Northwich, Rockwich Festival

Corners Of Sanctuary (COS) has released a new music video for the second single ‘Hail, Hail,’ off their latest album ‘The Galloping Hordes,’ which is available on Killer Metal Records.

The video was shot while COS was on tour in Germany this past August supporting the new album’s CD release on August 10th . Production took place on location at the former World Fair Expo 2000 site in Hannover. The video is uniquely and vibrantly back dropped by colorful graffiti and what remains of the Fair’s now abandoned structures.

Having been able to do a video while in Germany was such a great opportunity for us,” said COS guitarist Mick Michaels. “It commemorates our first trip there as a band and provides us a memorable and meaningful memento we can share with the fans,” he continued.

The band is now preparing for a six date run of shows in California this November. The tour, which marks COS’ second outing to the Golden State, is being presented by Metal Babe Mayhem and MBM Music LLC.

Can’t wait to bring COS back to the West Coast,” said Metal Baby Mayhem CEO Alison “MetalBabe” Masson. “This tour is going to rock!” she added.

COS has also returned to the studio to record an new, original Holiday song, scheduled to release around Thanksgiving, as well as work on new material for a future project.

What can we say… we like to stay busy,” said COS bassist James Pera.
