EVANESCENCE – SYNTHESIS

EVANESCENCE returns this Fall with SYNTHESIS, their fourth studio album. The group premiered “Bring Me To Life”—an instant grat track—via Rolling Stone. “’Bring Me To Life’ is new to me again after 15 years,” says AMY LEE of EVANESCENCE. It’s diffi cult to explain how good that makes me feel. Having the chance to incorporate things I’ve heard in my head throughout that long period of time, nuances from the way I sing it live, just pouring the weight and perspective of the life I’ve lived now back into that root—it’s pure satisfaction.” The two-time, GRAMMY Award-winning group is currently in the studio finishing the new album through August with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell. In addition to the re-imagined catalog songs, the forthcoming SYNTHESIS album will feature two new EVANESCENCE songs. Like the album, the “Synthesis Live” tour features a reimagining of some of EVANESCENCE’s best-loved ...

PROJECT MAMA EARTH –...

IN JUNE 2017, FIVE WORLD-RENOWNED MUSICIANS MET IN DEVON, ENGLAND WITH NO GAME PLAN. NOTHING, IN FACT, BUT A PLAN TO PLAY TOGETHER AND CATCH THE SPARKS.

CONVENING AT STONE’S HOME STUDIO, IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG FOR THE MUSICIANS TO FEEL EACH OTHER OUT. STONE PURPOSEFULLY KEPT HER OWN CREATIVE PROCESS SEPARATE FROM THE FOUR MUSICIANS. “I LEFT THEM TO DO THEIR OWN THING WITH THE MUSIC IN THE STUDIO,” SHE REFLECTS. SOON, A COHESIVE EP WAS TAKING SHAPE. IN THE STUDIO, THE MUSIC OF JOSEPH, M’BAPPÉ, SHORTEN, AND SAWHNEY BEGAN WITH THE PROPULSIVE MANGAMBE AND BIKUTSI PATTERNS, BUT QUICKLY SPILLED OVER INTO TUNES ...

SEAL – STANDARDS

British soul legend Seal returns with his new album, ‘Standards’ – combining his unique voice with some of the greatest jazz standards and swing classics ever written. An artist who’s been at the top of his game throughout his 30-year career, Seal’s 10th studio album breathes life into iconic hits, paying tribute to legends including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. Seal’s new album brings the glamour of Old Hollywood straight to the present. It is a natural successor to his series of soul records, made a decade ago which sold over 5 million copies around the world. ‘Standards’ hears Seal’s signature, velvety warm vocals bring to life classics made popular by Frank Sinatra (such as Luck Be A Lady, I’ve Got You Under My Skin and It Was A Very Good Year), Ella Fitzgerald (I’m Beginning to See The Light) and Nina Simone (I Put A Spell on You).

BLAKE SHELTON – TEXOMA...

Country superstar Blake Shelton remains firmly rooted as a proud Oklahoman with his forthcoming album, Texoma Shore. “Lake Texoma has always been a place of great memories, new and old,” said Shelton. “I literally recorded this album on its shore so it’s full circle for me to take the love of this place and my love of country music.” Taste of Country praised the single, saying, “I’ll Name the Dogs’ is the first taste we’ve had of Shelton’s next album, and with its clever, fun lyrics, a melody that grabs you instantly and a sincere, charming vocal performance from Shelton, it’s not hard to predict that it’s also his next big hit.” Texoma Shore follows in the footsteps of Shelton’s last album, If I’m Honest, which was the best-selling country album released in 2016. That album earned Shelton a number of awards, including Top Country Artist at the Billboard Music Awards in ...

Since unleashing their seminal 1996 debut Die for the Government, Anti‐Flag has empowered and emboldened the listeners of two generations beset with a new millennium stricken by war, racial upheaval, and financial collapse. The Pittsburgh, PA quartet—Justin Sane [vocals], Chris#2 [bass, vocals], Chris Head [guitar, vocals], and Pat Thetic [drums]—has consistently embodied a timeless punk spirit over the course of nine influential offerings, including The Terror State, For Blood and Empire, and most recently, 2015’s American Spring. The latter boasted appearances from icons such as Tom Morello and Tim Armstrong and yielded the anthem" Brandenburg Gate,”. They’ve incinerated stages on tour alongside Rage Against The Machine, Sick of It All, Billy Talent, The Offspring, Rancid, and more in addition to festivals ranging from Coachella to the Vans Warped Tour. A cultural institution, they have spoken out on behalf of movements such as Occupy Together, Greenpeace, Sea Shepherd, and Amnesty  International between launching their own label A‐F and ANTIFest.
