Nothing More’s Spirits Album Drops October 14th

Rockers Nothing More has announced the pre-order for their new album. The highly anticipated "Spirits" is set for release on October 14th. Accompanying the announcement is the release of the lyric video for the hard-rocking title track. Photo Credit: Jody Domingue 'The new single follows the successful "Turn It Up Lie (Stand In The Fire)" and "Tired of Winning". "Spirits" has everything to do with alcohol according to frontman Jonny Hawkins. When you drink liquor, it has been said that you are welcoming that pneuma (spirit) into your body. Most of us have seen and experienced how alcohol (or rather ‘al-ghawl,’ which means demon/spirit) can make us feel. It’s almost as if we turn into someone else when too much of the spirit has been consumed. Sometimes it’s eye opening and can ...

Hard-Hitting Jane N’ The Jungle Single “Dirty Dog” Available Now

Jane N' The Jungle has come out swinging with the release of their new single "Dirty Dog". The uptempo rock track carries a strong message that shouldn't be ignored. Photo Credit: Jim Louvau Front woman Jordan White confronts the issue of her own sexual assault in the lyric content of the song. She penned the lyrics at a local watering hole while trading stories with the talented Ayron Jones. Lyrics like "felt so gross and so small, like a Dirty Dog" carry a heavy weight. But these types of heavy topics shouldn't be ignored. In fact, I can't think of a better place to express them than an aggressive rock song like this. Jane N' The Jungle is fresh off the release of their Ocean Creatures EP. They jumped right back in the studio so that the talented White along with Brian Dellis...

Punk Rockers Handheld Pay Tribute To John Candy In New Music Video

Canadian punk rockers Handheld have delivered the John Candy tribute you might not have realized you needed. "Leaving Candyland" is a fun up-tempo homage to one of comedy's true legends. The music video features band members dressed up as a number of Candy's classic movie and television characters. How many can you spot? A Canadian Tragedy is the first new album in 14 years from Handheld. They formed in 1998 out of Ontario and are known for their loud, fast, and melodic punk rock jams. Fans of bands like Bad Religion, NOFX and Rise Against will feel right at home. We're hearing a hint of Blink 182 on "Leaving Candyland" too. And it's not just what appears to be a similar sense of humor. Handheld released six albums/EPs over a 10-year period from 1998 to 2008. From there they we...

RRGH Vol 4: Celebrating Women & Femmes in Music

My dear readers, it's time for me be completely honest with you: It's a bit embarrassing to admit this, but when it came to International Women's Month, I froze. I thought I'd be able to put together a piece celebrating women & femmes in music in no time, but here we are. In May. Don't get me wrong--I immediately had an idea as to who I wanted to write about. Like, when I asked myself, "OK, Women's Month-- woohoo! Time to write. Best chick in music right now, go." I did have a name pop up in my head. But it felt too easy. Too immediate. So, I sat with that thought for a moment. "Why did my mind immediately jump to her?" Because her music is bomb, of course. There was no lie there. She wasn't a cop-out. I absolutely wanted to celebrate her during women's month, ...

12 Rock Videos On YouTube With More Than 1 Billion Views

Evanescence is the latest band to achieve a once-unthinkable milestone. "Bring Me To Live" has crossed the one billion view mark on YouTube. And we'd be lying if we said we weren't responsible for at least 267 of those views over the last few years. Here's a deeper dive where we take a look at 12 rock videos on YouTube that have been viewed more than a billion times. Sure bands like Bon Jovi and AC/DC have hit the mark but that's to be expected. Pop stars? Sure, a lot of them have more than a billion. And of course, in researching for this article we came across the fact that the first act to achieve this accomplishment was Psy with the phenomenon "Gangnam Style" (yes we can do the dance still). So congrats to Amy Lee and company from Evanescence, you've entered into a pretty ...
