NEW RECORD TO DROP JULY 28 AND US TOUR DATES

ALICE COOPER PROMO

Last Thursday evening on his radio program, "Nights With Alice Cooper," ALICE COOPER debuted the first single, "Paranoiac Personality" off the forthcoming album Paranormal. As previously announced, Paranormal features two songs written and recorded with the original members of the ALICE COOPER band and also has guest appearances by ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen and Roger Glover of DEEP PURPLE.

Listen to the single, "Paranoiac Personality":

The guitar-driven "Paranoiac Personality" is a perfect entry point to Alice's searing rock record. An album that explores the fringes of society, the end of the world, encounters with the devil and more. Paranormal was produced by long-time collaborator Bob Ezrin (PINK FLOYD, DEEP PURPLE). In addition to the new studio album and the two new recordings from the original ALICE COOPER band, fans will receive a bonus of six live tracks recorded at one of Cooper's 2016 shows in Columbus, OH.

ALICE COOPER's North American tour also kicked off this week. He'll join up with DEEP PURPLE beginning in August. Highlights include The Greek in Los Angeles on August 13 and Jones Beach on August 26. ALICE COOPER is on a world tour throughout 2017. Full North American tour dates below.

NORTHLANE SURPRISES THE WORLD WITH RELEASE OF MESMER

NORTHLAND PROMO

HERE'S WHAT THE BAND HAS TO SAY ABOUT DROPPING THE RECORD:

"Through determination, hard work, sacrifice, and a bit of luck, we are able to travel the world taking our music to fans both old and new. We're able to spend time crafting the music we want to hear with the benefit of not having to leave the studio early to go and work a job. To an artis,t these are real luxuries. We appreciate them more than anything and we're in the position of being able to do this because of you — our incredible fans who continue to support us. You free us to be the artists we want to be.

"This is our way of rewarding our fans for everything they've given us. What our music means to you is what it means to us. Art is an experience, and to us it reserves no room for competition, and the only accolade that matters to us is the place this holds in your heart.

"Releasing Mesmer in this way has been right for us at this moment in time. We have grown immeasurably as people and as a band through the toughest recording process we've ever endured. We've been tested every step of the way and have come out the other side with something we are truly proud of. We didn't want to keep it from you a moment longer than we had to. We felt we owed it to this album to try and think creatively about every aspect of the way people would experience Mesmer, like a gift from us to you that is being unboxed. We wanted to make everyonE's discovery of this moment special."

NORTHLANE MESMER COVER ARTMesmer follows on from their critically and commercially successful album Node (2015), which raced straight to the top of the ARIA Chart, debuting at #1 and landing them the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album. Revered by media around the world, Node scored the coveted feature album on triple j, a guest host spot on iconic ABC television program Rage and two Blunt Magazine covers in six months. Alternative Press nominated Northlane for the "Best New Band" award at the 2015 APMAs and they earned a third Metal Hammer Golden Gods nomination for "Best Breakthrough Artist" in 2016, shaping NORTHLANE into one of the most successful Australian heavy music exports today.

The rest of 2017 will see NORTHLANE take Mesmer to all corners of the globe, starting with a tour of South East Asia and an appearance on Hammersonic (Indonesia). After that, NORTHLANE will return to Australia for a headline tour that wraps up with the band playing The Big Pineapple Festival as one of the main acts alongside Birds of Tokyo, The Veronicas, and Peking Duck.

NORTHLANE will hit international festival stages throughout the rest of 2017 with appearances on the main stage at Download Festival (UK) and Hellfest (France). The band will also appear at Vainstream Rockfest (Germany), Jera On Air (Netherlands), Graspop (Belgium), Dissonance Festival (Italy), Rock For People (Czech Republic), Resurrection (Spain), and many more.

Mesmer is available now via 24Hundred, iTunes, and all streaming services. Fans can also purchase Mesmer as well as exclusive merch at NORTHLANE pop-up shops + signing events in Melbourne (24Hundred) and Sydney (Utopia Records) this weekend.

BANDCAMP LOGO WHITE

Blacktop Mojo Burn The Ships

"We all quit our jobs at about the same time to make this record and play as much as possible—that was our all in, no going back moment. It reminded me of a story we heard from the 1500s about a Spanish explorer that sailed to conquer a territory. Once they landed on the beach, he burned all the ships so all his men knew one thing was clear, there's no going back. That's what that song is about, and that's the story of our lives at the point of the record being created." - Blacktop Mojo

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE AND ANTHRAX TO CO-HEADLINE SPRING 2017 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR — "KILLTHRAX"

"Get out your pit pants and start stretching now for all the glorious action and fun!" -- Scott Ian, Anthrax

KILLSWITCHanthraxTHE DEVIL WEARS PRADA

SiriusXM Will Present All Dates    

Metalcore forefathers Killswitch Engage and thrash legends Anthrax announce today that they will hit the road this Spring to co-headline a 27-date North American tour, presented by SiriusXM. The bands' itinerary will also include an April 15 appearance at the Texas Independence Festival in Austin, as well as each band headlining two solo shows separate from the double bill.

With KsE and Anthrax rotating the closing slot over the course of the dates, the tour will hit the ground on March 29 in Montclair, NJ and then criss-cross the continent, wrapping up in Boston on May 7. The intense and dynamic The Devil Wears Prada will provide direct support on all dates.

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, Dec. 16 at 10AM local time. Log on to the KsE site, the Anthrax site, or the TDWP site for all details regarding ticket purchasing and pre-sales.

Killswitch Engage released the universally regarded Incarnate (Roadrunner) this past March, which debuted #6 on the Billboard 200, and #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Album chart. 2016 also saw KsE appearing on a Stars Wars-themed Revolver cover, staging an unforgettable and intimate, five-club NYC takeover for album release week, and embarking on an impressive Incarnate World Tour. On November 25, the band released Beyond the Flames: Home Video Vol. II on Blu-ray, a treasure trove of gripping content, containing over 3.5 hours of footage. At the heart of this release is a 75-minute documentary that chronicles the return of original vocalist Jesse Leach, after nearly a decade away, to the band he helped form back in 1999. It picks up right where their 2005 {Set This} World Ablaze release left off, revealing the rest of the untold KsE story.

For Anthrax, these dates are in support of the band's critically-celebrated 11th album, For All Kings (Megaforce), released last February. Celebrating its 35th anniversary, 2016 has been action-packed for Anthrax. For All Kings debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart and #9 on the Billboard 200, the band's second Top 10 chart entry. Two striking music videos made with director Jack Bennett, one over-the-top grizzly, the other an innovative stop-motion piece, an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers that paired the band with the iconic Robert De Niro, and sharing stages with bands like Iron Maiden, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold, and fellow Big Four members, Slayer were just a few of the highlights.

"Anthrax and Killswitch will be a really good blend for fans," said Anthrax's Charlie Benante. "We both play metal, but we play two different forms of the genre. I think fans of both bands are in for a 'Total Explosion of the Senses.'" Added the band's Frank Bello, "This Anthrax/KSE tour is a powerful ball of energy ready to unleash the metal in the U.S."

"Anthrax and Killswitch — KillThrax! Holy crap!," said Scott Ian. "I am so excited about these upcoming shows with our old friends Killswitch Engage. Get out your pit pants and start stretching now for all the glorious action and fun!"

KsE singer Jesse Leach echoed Anthrax's enthusiasm about the upcoming trek, saying, "We are so stoked to tour with thrash legends Anthrax! We are sure this will bring a powerhouse of a live show with the combination of both bands. This is, hands down, the most excited we've been to tour alongside a band in a long while. This will be one you won't want to miss. KillThrax is coming for you!!!!"

ABOUT KILLSWITCH ENGAGE:

Formed in 1999 out of western Massachusetts, Killswitch Engage are often credited as one of the most influential metal acts in the last 20 years. Twice Grammy-nominated, they've sold over 3 million records worldwide, with The End of Heartache and As Daylight Dies both certified Gold in the U.S. The band has enjoyed multiple Top 10-charting albums, with 2016's Incarnate (March 11/Roadrunner) landing at #6 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Current Rock Albums chart, and debuting at #1 overall in Canada, #5 in Australia, and #10 in both the UK and Germany, a testament to the band's international reach.

As cofounders of Killswitch Engage, guitarist/backing vocalist Adam Dutkiewicz, guitarist Joel Stroetzel, bassist Mike D’Antonio, and lead vocalist Jesse Leach (who returned four years ago after a decade-long absence) together with longtime drummer Justin Foley continue to make trend-resistant, timeless heavy music that feeds the soul, touches the heart, and strengthens the mind. Spending much of their career on the road, Killswitch Engage have enjoyed premium slots on major U.S. tours, including OzzFest, Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos, Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest, Music As a Weapon, and Trespass America, as well as countless international festivals around the globe. Having shared the stage with acts ranging from Rise Against to Slayer, the diversity and versatility of their touring is unparalleled. Their songs have been featured on Guitar Hero III, Rock Band, John Madden, the Resident Evil III soundtrack, and as entrance music for WWE wrestling champ CM Punk.

ABOUT ANTHRAX:

As part of the band’s 35th anniversary year, Anthrax released one of 2016’s most-anticipated metal/thrash albums, For All Kings (February 26/Megaforce in North America/Nuclear Blast internationally), that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and at #9 on Billboard's Top 200, becoming Anthrax's highest-charting album in more than two decades. Written by drummer Charlie Benante, bassist Frank Bello and guitarist Scott Ian, the dynamic triumvirate whose unique composition chemistry is, in part, what sets Anthrax's music apart from other bands' in the same genre, combined with Joey Belladonna's breathtaking vocals and the searing guitar leads by newest member Jonathan Donais, it's no wonder the album and the band’s live shows have consistently received tremendous reviews.

Over its 35-year career, Anthrax has been a pioneering band with its unique style, sound and heavy brand of thrash metal, and, as Metallica's Kirk Hammett put it, "one can hear their influence on any number of up and coming bands.” Anthrax has sold in excess of 10-million units, received multiple Gold and Platinum certifications, six Grammy nominations and a host of other accolades from the media, industry and fans. From the race and genre barriers Anthrax helped break down in 1988 when they collaborated with Public Enemy on "Bring The Noise," to becoming a card-carrying member of The Big Four - with Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth - as one of the four bands that defined the speed/thrash metal genre, to being the first metal band to have its music heard on Mars when NASA played "Got The Time" to wake up the Mars Rover, Anthrax continues to break ground and innovate.

ABOUT THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA:

The Devil Wears Prada is the musical embodiment of a generational shift. Built on a diverse array of heavy, dark, melodic and genre-defying music, hardened and sharpened by putting in road work together since the days when they had to skip class to tour, The Devil Wears Prada has long been at the forefront of a movement that bridges the gap between Rockstar Mayhem and the Vans Warped Tour.

In many ways, the band —Mike Hranica (vocals), Jeremy DePoyster (rhythm guitar, clean vocals), Andy Trick (bass), and the recent addition of Kyle Sipress (guitar)—has embraced transition and change since their 2005 formation. After the pivotal breakout With Roots Above and Branches Below in 2009, the boys challenged the status quo and notched widespread critical acclaim, landing two consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 for the conceptual Zombie EP [2010] and Dead Throne [2011]. Two thousand thirteen's 8:18 continued to expand their imprint on heavy music, while the intergalactic concept epic Space EP (2015) blasted off to a #18 debut and praise from Alternative Press, Loudwire, and more. With influences from novels like The Mandarins by Simone de Beauvoir, William Faulkner's The Sound and The Fury, and Russian literature by Nabokov, Chekhov, and Dostoevsky, Prada gets very personal on their new album, Transit Blues (10-7-16), tackling topics like gun control, anxiety and the toll that touring takes. All Music called it "as blistering and visceral as anything they've ever done."

INTERVIEW FLAGGED: RYAN GUANZON OF LATE NIGHT FIGHTS

 flagged fb banner ryan LNFLATE NIGHT FIGHTS PROMO

"Sometimes, the thoughts that travel out through my fingers into my words, are louder than the sounds they make falling out of my mouth."  

It can be hard coordinating schedules with artists for interviews. Since 9 time outta 10 someone is in the middle coordinating dates and times with the media and the artist making sure everyone is on the same page becomes a huge challenge and let's not even think of the nightmare if you're a publicist with a ton of bands on your roster. 

My Inbox was flooded earlier in the month with Press Requests and I was bumbed that I would have to start doing something different because I couldn't possibly do phoners with everyone. I kept thinking of the email interview and how could I give the readers something to take away from an article about an Up & Coming Band, or something completely different from a veteran of rock that they had not run across before or better yet that hadn't been published yet from an artist.

Well, after some thinking and looking at other publication's interviews, I came up with a cool little balance between just tryping words, to connecting with the reader interactively! Enter the "Flagged" Feature interview on SomeKindOfMedia.com where the artist interacts with me in a static kind of way at first - but then becomes fluid, with some really cool movement when it is all put together.

See first hand with the Minneapolis band Late Night Fights and Ryan Guanzon had to say in this Flagged interview! 

 

1. Really like the band name. It reminds me of college or like being in your 20's ... so many late night fights, am I right??! It's kind of odd now, to think about having a fight with whomever late at night. 
Tell me where the band name comes from.

The name came from fights of all sorts­; a tough guy at the bar trying to grab my girlfriend and getting into a fistfight, being up all night with a bunch of shit on your mind, and all of the animals of the night in ripping each other up that you never see or hear about.

2. How did you decide on the theme of your video?

We’ve all been in a relationship with someone who turns out to not be who they seem. Sometimes you find out that it’s more extreme than you ever imagined. It seems especially now people hide shit when you’re dating. It happened to me and we tried to make a fun video with the idea.

 

3. So, as you're doing this interview ­ unless you're in your all­together (no one wants to see you sitting on the crapper or nekid on your couch or lying on a bear skin rug - well, some of us right...ehum...anywhoo...) ­ take a selfie of where you're sitting filling out this most entertaining and best interview you've ever had (ok, that was added after the fact...I admit).

 SELFIE

 

4. Tell us one memory from childhood that directly effected your movement or attraction to music.

hendrixI remember seeing the first Woodstock video and Jimi Hendrix starting his guitar on fire and just getting extremely engulfed in the feedback and noises it was making. That was when I became obsessed with rock n roll.

 

 

 

 

5. Favorite band of all time:

Guanz: Rage Against The Machine
Shane: Rush 
Daniel: Neurosis

6. Tell me your favorite Whitney Houston song.

whitney houston ftrDamn, haha!! Greatest Love of All

7. What music is on your phone? Do you have a favorite playlist? Screenshot it and attach to this email.

Here’s my recently played:

PLAYLIST

 8. Mac or PC?

Mac

9. Who would you tour with if you could tour with any band ­ together or not.

RATM, Alice In Chains, Refused, Deftones

10. Take your phone camera, put it on selfie mode and take a picture of what's over your left shoulder. 

OVER YOUR LEFT SHOULDER PIC

11. Biggest challenge our country faces?

Discrimination and not embracing technological advances.

12. Worst life experience that became your best blessing.

My mother had a surgery gone terribly wrong while writing Jousthouse. She was in a coma for a week and almost lost her. The odds were against her but miraculously she came out of it. The longest nights of my life were when she was in a coma. But that wasn’t all. I caught my girlfriend at the time with someone else, and my extended family was falling apart. My girlfriend at the time was on a banging spree and my cat had renal failure. Somehow I was able to focus all of that in to the record. Check out “Detonator” and “A Beautiful Lie” and you can hear what I’m talking about.

13. How has music made your life better?

Like I just mentioned, it is a to put negative energy into a positive outlet. It’s been a source of escape, hope, and healing since I was a kid. My parents would beat the shit out of each other and I would crank up Nirvana and Pantera until I could get lost in it. Performing songs and reaching out to people and touching their lives is the greatest feeling on the planet.

14. Look at #10 and the picture. Title a song from what you see.

"What If” (Scott Stapp is sound checking behind me)

15. To guitar solo or not to solo? What is your preference?

Depends on the song and the moment. More often than not a two ­note lead is way cooler than a million note shred.

16. Finish this sentence: "If a _______ paints a _______ words then ____ can't ___ paint ____”

If Lil’ Jon paints a poet's words then bob ross can’t paint shit

17. Best show or most memorable show you've played.

I played Carolina Rebellion when I was with [previous band] New Meds. Hed form Korn showed up and hung out at our RV all day, then re­joined the band for the first time in several years. It was bad ass! There were so many damn good bands at that show­ Shinedown, Chevelle, Halestorm, Five Finger. 

18. If you're at home, take a picture of your favorite thing.

I’m not at home but my favorite things are with me, and they are my guitars.

19. If you're not at home, take a picture of something you wish was yours that you can see, in your vicinity. Attach to this email.

I am at a hotel bar and the only thing I want is this whiskey that I am drinking.

21. Best part of "Jousthouse"? What should my favorite song be?

The cool part about Jousthouse is it is dynamic. I personally love playing Detonator and Galvanize the best live, but The Only One is a catchy favorite of many I’m told.
