ERIC GALES – MIDDLE OF...

LEFT-HANDED GUITAR PHENOMENON ERIC GALES TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM MIDDLE OF THE ROAD Eric Gales just may be the ultimate under-the-radar superstar in rock history. Throughout his 25 years as a professional musician, he’s been termed a child prodigy, “the most underrated guitarist in history,” and even the successor to Jimi Hendrix. He’s released 13 studio albums under his name to date, played with fellow greats ranging from Eric Johnson to Carlos Santana, and contributed to a variety of projects showcasing his ability to command virtually any musical genre with ease. “I’m humbly proud for the notoriety,” Gales says of his contrasting high critical acclaim and relatively low-key public image. “God will make way for people to know who I am, just by me doing what it is I’m supposed to be doing. It’s happening how it’s supposed to be happening.” Indeed, this year may just be the time for it to happen: ...

CIRCA WAVES – DIFFERENT...

Circa Waves have announced their eagerly anticipated new album Different Creatures, set for release through Virgin EMI internationally on March 24, 2017. Lead track “Wake Up” is a juttering, barbed statement‐of‐intent that sees walls of fuzzed guitars jostling for space with lead singer Kieran Shudall’s trademark melodies, re‐introducing the world to a band ready to push their sound forward and claim their place at the top table of UK guitar bands. Co‐produced by Alan Moulder (The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins), Different Creatures is the grittier, ‘night time’ counterpart to the breezy summer vibes of its Top 10 predecessor Young Chasers, exuding a newfound swagger. Shaped by Shudall’s perceptive songwriting ability Different Creatures showcases a disenchantment with the world he sees. Circa Waves are now a louder and more vital band, nudging their sonic palette into a territory shared with rock heavyweights such as Arctic Monkeys and Queens Of The Stone Age. Of the new single, ...
