TONY CLARK OF TONY CLARK & KiLLiNG TIME AND  CUTS FROM THEiR EP  WHEN i'M iN MY CAR
Tall dark trees...the stench of rotting seaweed and oysters, lingering mist wafting over hills and towns. And the slightly deranged humour of a race of men that run around in logger shirts drinking cappuccino - all these things are quite apparent in TONY CLARK's songs, but the German based Seattle native does have more to offer. Years traveling the globe, sitting in the Himalayas meditating over a sitar, playing the streets of Europe with South American Indians, or bearing the icy cold waterfall of a Japanese zen monastery - all these have left a trace in TONY'S musical oeuvre."At some point, I decided the rock song was the right cup, the flask, the vehicle for conveying my ideas." says TONY "I tried other things, but it was all too much of a compromise. I'm happy if I can write a good rock song, with some spices thrown in for good measure." TONY CLARK AND KILLING TIME have been together only for a few months now, but the combination of EMIL ABRIGADA on bass, SASCHA BARANSKY on drums, and TONY's singing and guitar is the future. "Although we come from really different backgrounds, we spent 3 or 4 hot days together this last summer, and we all loved it ...and it was clear that this is the way we want to play."

COLE CHiLDERS AND  CUTS FROM HiS NEW EP  AURORA
Growing up in Bainbridge Island, Washington, singer / songwriter / guitarist COLE CHILDERS was surrounded by Seattle�s grunge movement, but at 17 with guitar in hand; he knew he wanted music to be his own. His debut slo EP AURORA kicks off with the hard hitting modern rock track, "SAVE ME," ,and then slams right into the first single "FALL WITH ME," the video of which is shot from a soldier's point of view.  "This video was very important to me," relates COLE.  "So many people read military death tolls in the paper and have a standard reaction without true feeling behind it.  We did this video in order to cut to the core of the viewer so they may understand the true sacrifice that military and their families make everyday."  The LINKIN PARK infused "ADDICT" follows. The song doesn't necessarily reference drug addiction, rather anything that controls someone physically and mentally in a negative fashion.  "Being high without a drug is referring to finding true happiness and overcoming the crutch," says the singer / guitarist. The breakneck juggernaut of "RUN AWAY," then crashes through and "could be the most meaningful song to me," says COLE. "It signifies the father - daughter relationship in a broken marriage.  Giving assurance to the child that I will be your rock and can always be counted on,"  Featuring a hook as wide as the Pacific Ocean, "IIMPOSSIBLE," touches on the struggle of trying to break through to your significant other during the dying phase of your relationship. The Ep's title track, "AURORA" finishes off the record with a more acoustic oriented approach than the rest of the songs on offer and tells a story of a girl cheating on her boyfriend. While she's torn apart by guilt and not knowing what lies down the road, he just moves on with life, having few cares in the world ... sort of an about face on life.

DEBORAH HENRiKSSON  AND  CUTS FROM HER NEW ALBUM  TRACES
New Jersey born, Sweden based singer DEBORAH HENRIKSSON has been a glorious work in progress since her 2007 recording debut SIMPLE GIFTS, bringing her ethereal vocals and rich, global musical sensibilities to recordings where she re-imagined everything from classical art songs  to contemporary folk and Celtic based tunes and pieces by LOREENA MCKENNITT, ELEANOR MCEVOY, MOYA BRENNAN (from the Irish band CLANNAD) and even 18th Century Scottish poet ROBERT BURNS. DEBORAH's ongoing journey of discovering her true artistic expression reaches a powerful breakthrough moment on her latest full length album TRACES. The 12-track collection marks her debut as a heartfelt lyricist singing songs that emerge from her innermost places. Her songwriting partner is her longtime producer, MATS NYMAN. The story of this album is unique from the others in that TRACES is about HENRIKSSON's search for her own voice, trying to figure out what she had to say musically after spending so many years gracefully interpreting everyone from MOZART to JONI MITCHELL. The epiphany to start writing her own lyrics came from her frustration over trying to finding fresh outside songs that captured what she wanted to communicate as an artist. She saw this as a watershed fork in the road - either keep doing the same thing or dig deep to see what she could pen herself. She and NYMAN experimented with different approaches to songwriting, but in the end, rather than simply write poems for him to set to music, she generally sat with him as he created melodies and arrangements and - filled with fresh inspiration - she would go off and start writing lyrics.

They are currently releasing their new 7 song EP. THE BLB DEMO, whose title is a playful misnomer since it's a fully produced set capturing their dynamic multi-faceted sound.

From beginning to end the crowds attention was captivated which I don't feel happens too often because for some reason people tend to treat the opening act as if they'll contract a venerial disease through some sort of physical or air born manner but the crowd was into it, screaming, yelling, dancing around, and it carried on all through the night.

DEAD WAiT

Citing influences such as RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, BOB DYLAN, TOM WAITS, THE DARKNESS, THE BLACK KEYS  and KINGS OF LEON, GHOST TOWN ORCHESTRA create a vibrant folk-inspired sound well suited for fans of rock & roll and alternative folk fans alike. LOGAN STAATS (guitar/vocals),VICTORMARTISIUS (guitar/vocals), IAN MARTINS (Bass/vocals) and PAUL VENDETTI (Drums) steadily morphed themselves into an experimental rock-funk outfit during the the early summer of 2012 in the forgotten ghost town of Brantford Ontario. What began as a simple collaboration project between the young but scattered musicians quickly transformed into a rambunctious hybrid of swaggering indie rock and danceable Folk not bound by any specific genre. Guided by sandpaper-gritty vocals, a blend of raw unpolished boogie rock, and unvarnished guitar parts these gentlemen of the stage are set to prove that anything is possible when you put you heart and soul into it.

When it comes to strolling through the past darkly , no one out there comes close to Haida singer-songwriter KRISTI LANE SINCLAIR. The stripped down acoustic sound is all the rage in the indie rock scene but SINCLAIR takes that sound and  goes a little deeper on her latest  release THE SEA ALONE. Her sound is a mixture of folk, and grunge with a few classical flourishes accentuated by cellist CRIS DERKSEN but it is SINCLAIR's haunting lyrics and her distinctive growl that make THE SEA ALONE an affair to remember.

At ROCKWIRED we feel it's time we gave it up for the men in active rock.

We've titled this special issue GUYS OF ROCK and in it you will find a fourteen-page spread featuring 25 of active rocks' leading front men. Included in this issue is aa exclusive podcast featuring interviews with these 25 front men as well as musical performances.  And what would ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE be without our ussually rocking editorial?

It's like we're putting our ear to the train tracks and we can here something roaring in the distance. (HED) P.E. has been releasing music since the late nineties and their unlikely combination of metal and reggae sounds has set them apart from much of their active rock brethren.  Now with backing from the label PAVEMENT ENTERTAINMENT, the band is due to drop their most ambitious effort to date on July 22nd. The forthcoming album EVOLUTION is just that  - a step forward inthe band's sound  while simultaneously embracing  a few sonic flourishes from metal's winding past.  "As a guitar player when you are playing live you have your metal stuff and you are coming at it form a metal point of view and then the next song could be a reggae song which is a completely different approach." says (HED)P.E. guitarist JACKSON "If you attack reggae with a metal approach it's going to sound a lot different than if you attack it from a genuine reggae approach. That was probably one of the biggest challenges for me. This album really showcases what we do live. It's not a typical combination that you find in a record but it is one that (HED) P.E. an definitely do well."

With a live set that is both pyrotechnic and legendary in it's own time, WAYLAND are taking advantage of this momentum and looking to release a new album later this year. This forthcoming release is preceded by a rockin' new single GET A LITTLE - a thunderously stomping tune that kicks out the motherfucking  jams like it's nobody's effin' business. And they say that rock n roll is dead!

With all of the hip hop, blues, reggae and new age that has become typical of teh sounds comingout of Indian Country  we've been shouting out into the heavens this simple question "Where is the metal music?' Obviously we had to set our sites above the U.S. Canadian border and become acquainted with the band KICKIN KROTCH. Comprised of members of the Maliseet and Mi'kmaq Nations. KICK IN KROTCH take their inspiration from lifes hard knocks and set it to music you can bang your head to. Sure, the metal appraoch has set them apart form the likes of  FRANK WALN or a A TRIBE CALLED RED but their headbanging approach is showing signs of paying off professionally. THe band is currently nominated for  the prestigious ABORIGINAL PEOPLE"S CHOICE MUSIC AWARD on the strength of  their gritty self titled album.

POP CAPSULE
RE-EVALUATES
THE 1989 EURYTHMiCS ALBUM
WE TOO ARE ONE
FEATURiNG  SONGS FROM THiS UNQUALiFiED CLASSiC AND ViNTAGE iNTERViEW EXCERPTS
It was marketed as "a bold new beginning" for EURYTHMICS back in 1989 but the album WE TWO ARE ONE ended  up being the last album from the duo of DAVE STEWART and ANNIE LENNOX for a decade. Sure the album isn't as remembered as say SWEET DREAMS (ARE MADE OF THIS) or TOUCH or BE YOURSELF TONIGHT but the album captures an interesting moment in time for one of rock's most imaginative songwriting partnerships. You see, the story of EURYTHMICS was always kind of backwards. It's a story about falling in love and then breaking up and then deciding to be in a band together. This strange romantic circumstance has always led to some engaging music but by the time WE TOO ARE ONE hit the presses, that  chemistry was combustible and you can hear the explosions in such kiss offs as YOU HURT ME (AND I HATE YOU) ,  (MY MY) BABY'S GONNA CRY and DON'T ASK ME WHY whihc includes the jagged line "I don't love you anymore / I don't think I ever did." Too many hard feelings in an album can be hard to take but leave up to this duo to serve up these bitter gems with style.

http://www.rockwired.com/backfromasheshighlight.JPG You guys have spent a lot of time on this forthcoming album. Who all is helping you put this thing together?
BYRON from PELVIC MEATLOAF has been a huge, huge help. Aside from his talent he is an amazing guy We also have YVONNE LAUGHLIN who is really pushing BACK FROM ASHES everywhere. And the fans have been really pushing us as well. Fans and friends have really made things happen for us. When we get up every morning we just write. So thanks to all of those people. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be getting out of bed.

What are you looking to as a release date for this album?
We're looking at releasing it towards the end of the year. Maybe around August.

So far how do you feel that ti's different from your previous release?
It's a lot more intense as opposed to 261 and BROKEN. There's been a lot of personal stuff that has been going on since JASON left and I personally put my own touch to it. I was worried that the fans were going to react to it very differently. And they loved it. They were like "Wow! It's like new life has been brought to BACK FROM ASHES!" They loved it. The reaction has been great.

ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE JUNE  2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE

http://www.rockwired.com/3dinyourfacehighlight.JPG So you guys are based in Omaha, Nebraska?
Correct!

What kind of scene are you guys surrounded by?
It's a tough scene. We're surrounded by a lot of indie music. That's what is hot right now and we're kind of smack dab in the middle of a thriving indie rock scene which completely goes against the grain of what we're doing. Indie rockers are minimalists and we're a band that puts on a big rock n roll show. We've got the loud guitars, big hair and makeup.

Minimalist is a great word to describe the current indie scene. Who all comes out to see you guys when you do a show?
It's an array of people. It would surprise you. It's kids that have never seen rock n roll shows before and their parents will bring them out because their parents grew up in the eighties and can remember what rock n roll used to be. We've got kids in the audience - anyone from twenty one year old college students to forty or fifty year old parents. A whole gamut of people come out to see us.

ERiC JACKSON OF
BEST NOT BROKEN AND CUTS FROM THEiR EP FALLiNG iN

The title of BEST NOT BROKEN's infectious new five track EP FALLING IN has as much to do with the overriding theme of its songs - many about the twists and turns of romantic relationships - as it is a declaration about just how far the New England-based based band has evolved from its humble roots in 2007. FALLING IN opens with the anthemic yet reflective pop-rocker BREAKING MY HEART, which recalls how a friendship is first stretched and then broken as a young man comes to terms with the fact that he is losing his lover to his best friend.  This is followed by the upbeat, new-wave influenced I WON'T STOP LOVING YOU and then again by the hypnotic mid-tempo rocker LISTERINE about a guy who feels helpless in the face of a relationship that's beyond salvaging despite his best efforts - much like swigging the strong-tasting mouthwash. The earnest opening songs are balanced on the EP by the final more playful tracks. ANARCHY finds singer ERIC JACKSON taking a tongue-in-cheek look at the ups and downs of a crazy relationship that's full of "sexual insanity" - complete with references to pop culture icons like JUSTIN BIEBER, KATY PERRY, NASCAR and MILLER LITE.  The EP concludes with the mischievous, electronic dance-rocker TELL ME THAT YOU WANT ME an energetic chronicle of temptation and a lover's struggles with faithfulness.

TAYLOR COCHRANE AND SCOTT WHiTE OF
36? AND CUTS FROM THEiR ALBUM WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

Anytime you feel like knocking a teenage musician who seems to be noodling in his parents' basement and getting nowhere, stop in your tracks and think about multi-talented singer/songwriter TAYLOR COCHRANE. He grew up on a crazy amount of anti-ADD meds had led to severe highs and lows. But they also inspired serious bursts of songwriting genius that would eventually evolve into the wild, progressive swirl of sugary indie pop/rock, moody soundscapes and intense psychedelic wall of sound that drives his Calgary based art rock band with a name as quirky and intriguing as its music: 36? On their expansive, wildly eclectic new full length album, which includes a whopping 17 tracks (including a few well placed interludes), they find increasingly wild and unpredictable ways to answer the title question: WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? Impatient for the tracks to be mixed, TAYLOR took some downtime to create an alternative recording of where do we go from here called reprise, featuring bizarre acoustic instruments and household objects like running water, a toaster, pots and pans, etc. Though 36? has four previous recordings (released in various digital formats, but not in physical CD form), this is the first featuring the full band of SCOTT WHITE (guitars and keyboards), drummer RYAN KUSZ and bassist ERIC SVILPIS, who left the band shortly after recording the new album and was replaced by TAYLOR's longtime friend MIKE MALKIN. " On past projects, I had recorded all the instruments myself and had total control over every aspect of the music," says Taylor. "On this album, everyone adds their own personality to their parts and the music is better for it."

EARTH AND THE NEXT SOCiETY
AND CUTS FROM THEiR FORTHCOMiNG ALBUM
100TH MONKEY

In conceptualizing the most effective, high impact way to share the optimistic, consciousness raising themes of his latest and most powerful musical venture, MICHAEL SHIELDS, frontman and founder of the socially conscious soul rock collective EARTH AND TH ENEXT SOCIETY, released the 2011 concert recording LIVE EARTH as their debut. The bold experiment of launching a group with a live album (recorded in locales like Taos, New Mexico and Northern California) paid off, as they received airplay in over 180 countries. The group also opened shows for legendary rockers like JOHNNY WINTER and NAZARETH. Recording in his newly built state of the art home facility in Sedona, Shields translates the expansive vision for his new full length album 100TH MONKEY to the studio environment perfectly, balancing crisp sonics, exciting grooves and powerful lyrical themes with a lineup featuring keyboardist TOM McMILLAN, bassist JIMMY MACK (SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE, EDWIN STARR) and drummer DAVID BEDDELL. Currently finishing the album for release later in 2014, SHIELDS is releasing an EP featuring four key tracks that hint at the overall sound of the album�s distinctive production and a range of retro vibes that roll from CURTIS MAYFIELD inspired 70s funk cool (CHEAP HUSTLE) to the 70s and 80s pop/rock sensibilities of AWAKE AND ALIVE.

Looking back on it, I now realize that my fascination with the music industry started with CASEY KASEM and even though the top forty isn't quite what I live my life by, the man made a strong impression on me and his love for music was totally sincere. And as ROCKWIRED.COM quickly approaches it's ten year anniversary KASEM's passing almost comes a call to action for us here at ROCKWIRED to kind of step up our game as it were. ROCKWIRED is going to be huge and one of the things we want to accomplish in the coming months is establishing a presence on terrestrial radio and this is the show that we want to establish that presence with.

http://www.rockwired.com/redtiderisinghighlight.JPG The band has this great CD out and now that it's out there for people to get a listen to how do you feel about the finished work?
We definitely love it and it definitely showcases the advances we've made in our songwriting and we've learned so much from working with so many great people on this record and working with a real producer. It's all worked out perfectly for us.

Who produced this album for you guys?
We had two producers on this album. the first guy is MIKE McAREE We met him when we toured with IN THIS MOMENT. He does their sound when they play live. The second guy that we worked with is JEFF KANAN and he has done a lot of work. He's done some engineering on a couple of STAIND albums. He's even dome some work with KELLY CLARKSON so he has this whole wide variety of people that he's worked when he was with UNIVERSAL RECORDS.

DARK BEFORE DAWN is made up of some unique personalities! SHAWN BURGESS is our bass player. He works at Walmart Distribution. SCOTT ALDERIDGE (SWERVE) is our lead and rhythm guitarist. He works in construction. JAKE GABLE is our drummer. JAKE used to work on the railroad, but like me, he lost his job to rock and roll baby! I'm JANESSA BRYAN (LIL SIS), the singer, and I used to work at a pet store. At the end of the day, we are musicians at heart. We love the interactions with all the different people, and the high from performing is worth all of the sacrifices.

http://www.rockwired.com/elisiumhighlights.JPG So you guys are heading out on the road tomorrow for your tour?
We do. We leave early tomorrow. We've got a six pm load in in Ohio and it's about a seven hour ride for us so we're going to be on the road early.

How anxious are you to get on the road and do this
tour?
We're pretty stoked about it. The thing is this is the longest one we've ever done. It's about four months before we get some scheduled time off. While we're excited, it's quite an endeavor so right now we're double checking and triple checking everything and making sure that we have all of our stuff.

Where all is this tour going to take you? What places have you the most excited?
We're pretty excited to be hiding from the winter. We're going to be doing a lot of stuff in the South and the Southwest. We're gonna in Texas for a while right around Valentine's Day and then we're heading out some places in Arizona that w really enjoyed playing last year and then swinging back through we're going to do Colorado and Missouri. We're going to be going to some pretty cool places where we've got some really cool friends and we're excited be coming back and saying hello again to everyone.

ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE HiGHLiGHTS - BLACK ANGEL DOWN
ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE MAY 2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE

http://www.rockwired.com/blackangeldownhighlight.JPG You guys have this eight song EP that is two years old as of recently and this is a good lick of time to have something out. How do you feel about the work that is behind you?
NOKIO: Everybody is just real happy. It's been a grind for us especially for me because this is the first rock album that I've ever made. I know how to make music and I love rock music but I'm just here to learn. To be able to see every step and watch as we go into a room and nobody knows who we are and by the time were finished everybody in the world wants to know who we are is just a great feeling.

And how about you DAN?
DAN: It's really cool - just like NOKIO said - when you go into a room and no one knows who you are and no one has any expectations and we do what we do and in the first couple of notes of WIND - which is the song the we open up with - we've got the crowd captivated. It's just a cool feeling. You always hear the cliche things that people in bands say that "we're brothers" and this and that and the other but at the end of the day I really feel like the five of us really are brothers. Through music we just really get along with each other and even if we didn't have the band the five of us would still hang out and have as much of a good time as we do as a band.

The fact that MTV no longer plays music videos is almost not worth repeating anymore.  Why that is such a problem for people to accept is beyond us.  Can't people watch videos on YOUTUBE? And yet with MTV's absence,  there are more bands releasing music videos than ever.  For the July 2014 issue of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE we will be celbrating the art of the music video with a little help from RADIO KSCR which not only operates a rather fine online radio station but they have also launched  an online music video channel.  This issue will feature excitng pictorials of some of the most fascinating music videos that youare going to find online as well as profiles on the directors of these videos. Alongside this special feature is just the sort of bold editorial that folks have come to expect from ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE. In June we will be featuring exclusive interviews with (HED) P.E., CHARMiNG LIARS, BLUE MOVIE, THE VEER UNION and more. Another exciting edition to our editorial is SAY WHAT NOW? - a series of podcast news features that go behind the usual Q&A. These shows will address issues in independent music and profile entrepreneurs and movers and shakers in the music industry. We are truly excited to be making this addition to ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE and are even more excited about pushing the limits for what is possible with a digital publication.

When I spoke with guitarist STEPHEN ANTHONY GREGORY  I made a mistake in stating that rock n roll wasn't the music of the day any more. His response to me playing devil's advocate was "I don't know who you've been hanging out with." He was right! Rock n roll is still going strong  and Mr. GREGORY 's electrifying instrumental ME, MYSELF AND  goes above and beyond rock instrumental fare with riveting compositions  inspired by life and family history - specifically on the tracks OLD AVILA.  ME MYSELF AND I is one of those recording that proves that music can speak  louder  and paint pictures better than mere words.

ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE HiGHLiGHTS - DiAMOND LANE
ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE JUNE 2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE

http://www.rockwired.com/diamondlanehighlight.JPG

TERRORIZER is a great CD and now that it's out there what are your thoughts on the completed album?
I think it was a great experience for us creating. We didn't put any constraints or boundaries on us during the process. We didn't necessarily have a goal in mind. We just wanted to do what felt good to us. We wanted to hear on this record was what was going to be on the record as opposed to what a lot of other bands do which is sound like this band or that band. We thought "To hell with that!" We wanted to do what gets us fired up and gets our blood boiling and I think we achieved that.

Who all helped you guys behind the mixing board?
Our producer is TOM CHANDLER. This is the third album that we've done with him. In 2011 we recorded WORLD WITHOUT HEROES and in 2013 we recorded SAPHIRE and now we have this one. TOM CHANDLER is the main man. He did the producing mixing and mastering. The whole deal.

And what is it about him that keeps you coming back to him a your producer?
We definitely have a good working relationship and a friendship with TOM. The more we are able to work with him the more we are able to have an understanding of our strengths and weaknesses. It's been really advantageous for us to work someone continuously because they have a direct counterpoint for reference on how something should or shouldn't sound.

NiCK DEUTSCH
AND CUTS FROM HiS NEW EP
CRAZY RiDE

Perfectly reflecting the title of his melodically infectious but emotionally raw new EP, piano driven New York City pop/rocker NICK DEUTSCH has been on a CRAZY RIDE, receiving a series of exciting and promising accolades for three of the four tunes leading up to the official release of the collection. The high energy optimism of GREEN LIGHT earned him a Best Pop Male Vocal nomination at the 2013 International Music and Entertainment Awards (IMEA), while THE STATIC, a soaring duet with former American Idol finalist MARISSA PONTECORVO, was nominated in the Pop Category of THE GREAT AMERICAN SONG CONTEST contest. Testament to the powerful poetry of his lyrics, the words to CRAZY RIDE recently placed second in an AMERICAN SONGWRITER MAGAZINE contest; the lyrics were also printed in the May 2014 issue. Written as a sort of "blueprint on life" for his younger sister, CRAZY RIDE became the starting point for the EP, whose other songs covers the gamut of romantic relationship issues DEUTSCH has been through since then. "It's the first EP where I feel like I have my vision as an artist realized," he says. "Having been through arguably the worst experience of my life, I've become more open and fearless about the way in which I live and express myself as an artist. The realization that we truly have 'one life' has made me much more conscious of following my passion and being who I am. I'm willing to take bigger chances and see what happens. That's what CRAZY RIDE is about."

Is it any wonder that we always thought of BLUE MOVIE  as one of the sexiest  looking bands we've ever had on ROCKWIRED? I mean just look at them!  In spite of the supermodel  looks this is a band that  has really kicked out the motherfucking jams in the past specifically on their 2011 EP DELLUSiONS  iN TECHNiCOLOR.  Three years onward,  the band's founders LISA FOEDERER on drums and TONY PARIS on guitars  aim for a  more electronic vibe without sacrificing their rock n roll chops  and have recruited to new members - ANTHONY NOTO on vocals and ROBIN MAYER on  bass.  Their EP SYNTHETIC is due out this August but preceding the release is the single ELECTRIC WATER (featuring SUMMER on vocals) - a track that sums up the bands new attitude and the techno rock alchemy that  founders FOERDERER and PARIS promise will not alienate fans but attract them to new ones. On this point ROCKWIRED must concur.

WE WON'T GiVE UP

CHARMING LIARS is a British/American rock band, based in Los Angeles, California. Originally founded by lead vocalist, CHARLIE COSSER guitarist, KARNIG MANOUKIAN, and bassist, MIKE KRUGER in London, England. As teens growing up in London, England, the trio of talented musicians and songwriters that make up the core of this dynamic new rock band were shaken to their young souls by the crunching guitar riffs and memorable melodies that came out of the hard rock capital of the world, namely, Los Angeles. The impact on these impressionable music lovers was so powerful that they took the profoundly bold step of pulling up stakes, waving goodbye to the security of friends, family and a university education to follow their dream of becoming the next big thing by moving to Los Angeles - epicentre of American rock and roll for more than 45 years. Last year the band released their EP NEW DISORDER now they are back with their new EP WE WON'T GIVE UP  featuring the single THE DESPERATION.

PiQUED JACKS
AND THEiR TWO NEW SiNGLES UPTURNED PERSPECTiVES AND NO BAZOOKA

PIQUED JACKS describe their sound in their own words: "being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%". You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. PIQUED JACKS are brave souls. Raised in a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing at SXSW in 2013 and 2014, and sharing the stage with international acts such as ATOMS FOR PEACE and BOB SCHNEIDER. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the PIQUED JACKS were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone dropped a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled a boner and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EPs, conquering Italian airwaves (RAI 1, Radio RAI 1). This new material leads the band to a brand new, iridescent eclecticism, paving the way for a new album and tour. Their conviction is stronger and stronger, and their genuine camaraderie is highly palpable in their live show. This talented band of brothers seem to scream "this is not your usual fly by night, ME ME ME group of young men"; they know the strength of their sound and the endurance of their brand was born from their powerful friendship.

MAKE iT LOOK LiKE NOTHiNG HAPPENED

Fully in line with their transcendent creative musical ambitions, ALEX ELIOPOULOS (guitars, vocals) and DAVID MOLINA (guitars, keys, vocals, electronics) - the core duo of the powerfully eclectic San Francisco based collective IMPURITAN - came up with their clever moniker to reflect the contrast between humanity's lofty ideals and the apelike bodies we are caged in that hamper these. Inspired by space and love, the ensemble blends various inspirations and genres as they seek to mesh instrumental and ambient composition with the more conventional genres ELIOPOULOS and MOLINA love, including post-rock psychedelic, surf, punk rock, ambient and plain white noise. IMPURITAN follows their "foot in the door" EP HIJACKED ARTIFACTS, TREASURED FORMS  with their full length debut MAKE IT LOOK LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED.  "DAVID and I are always batting ideas around, and improvisation is a major part of the composition process," says ALEX ELIOPOULOS. "We bring everything to the table - electric and acoustic guitar, vocals, keyboards, loops and samples, both live and in the studio. We create sonic adventures on one hand and more conventional song structures on the other and then put the parts together. We have an unspoken sense of what this balance entails, and come up with material either through a conventional songwriting or just improvised sound exploration a lot of the time."

For over 14 years, SHAUN ANDERSON has been a dedicated musician exploring various sounds and themes that reflect his life experiences as a young Metis. He grew up on the Fishing Lake Metis Settlement, an small northern Albertan community, to the sound of his father's fiddle. Being surrounded by musicians, SHAUN decided to pick up a guitar, which shortly became his vessel to charter the rocky waters of life in a northern community. Shaun began playing guitar and bass for local bands in the area. This gave him incredible experience with touring and media exposure (he played a live show on the "A Channel" with a band known as "FILOSOFY"). However, the more he played, the more he desired to learn the fundamentals of music production and the music industry. This desire pushed him to make the move of a lifetime. In February 2007, he decided to move east in hopes of furthering his career; leaving his family, community and the sense of familiarity. A few months later, this would prove to be a life changing choice; Shaun got accepted to one of the top recording schools in Canada; RECORDING ARTS CANADA. Over the last year, SHAUN has been experimenting with different sounds and techniques. With the new technical skills of audio engineering and the advice of talented artist from around the world, SHAUN's music began to evolve and his creative expression began to take new shape resulting in his album SHINE being released April 30, 2014.

Their latest EP SUMMER BREAK is a perfectly titled soundtrack for Summer 2014, a five-track set of spirited, easy flowing positivity that achieves WRIGHT's goal of "stepping out from the realm of background music and getting on the other side of the camera."

ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE HiGHLiGHTS - BECK BLACK
ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE APRiL 2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE

http://www.rockwired.com/beckblackhighlight.JPG

What inspired the change in the band's name from THE MOONBEAMS to simply BECK BLACK?
At first I called the band THE MOONBEAMS because I called our then-guitar player NICK MAYBURY "MOONBEAM". The band has only been around for two years. ADAM ALT is the drummer and my roommate and said to me that he wanted to be a MOONBEAM so we became THE MOONBEAMS and that was what we were for two years. We have our own PANDORA radio station which is a great thing. We've also been named one of the top five LA concerts in LA WEEKLY. As a band we've been doing really great and our next step was to trademark our name. We met with an entertainment lawyer in Century City and he said that there was a band from the 1950's called THE MOONBEAMS that was a one hit wonder and that it was going to be difficult to trademark the name. There is also a band called MOONBEAMS in Russia and they are actually fans of ours and they trademarked the name there in 2003. We just felt like we shouldn't be using a name that is being trademarked so often. It's a very common name so we decided to change it but the deal breaker came when the guitarist that I named the band after quit. Meanwhile LA WEEKLY hits me up and wants to do a story on us. We had some shows coming up and I had to tell them not to do a story on us. We couldn't do the show because we didn't have a guitarist. It was a strange place to be in. We had to change our name and we didn't want to appear just to appear. Image is everything with the band so I started toying around with names. Everybody wanted me to call the band BECK BLACK which is my name.

ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE APRiL 2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE

http://www.rockwired.com/hellionhighlight.JPG

Does it feel like it's been thirty years?
There are times when it feels longer and there are times when it feels like everything happened yesterday. There were time periods in HELLION's history and the history
of metal that were like a virtual wasteland. Sometimes it feels like it's been a long time and sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday.

You're pretty much the first woman in Heavy metal. You had PAT BENATAR and you had BLONDIE but you were the first to get in front of a metal band and lead. Did that ever cross your mind as it was happening?
Yeah. Absolutely and I don't mean any disrespect to other females fronting rock bands. I've got to give credit to WENDY O'WILLIAMS and BETSY WEISS from BITCH was following that tradition that WENDY O'WILLIAMS had started. When we started playing people just didn't know what to do with HELLION especially on the American side. With regard to England we hit it right off the bat but with America there were so many stigmas and stereotypes about female singers with heavy bands. It was difficult. People have always accepted female singers as Country artists and pop artists but with the heavy metal genre it was a little different.

PRESENTS AN EXCLUSiVE iNTERViEW WiTH ROCKWiRED RADiO MUSiC AWARD WiNNER AND SCi-Fi iCON
JANE BADLER
AND HER NEW SiNGLE VOLCANO BOY
JANE BADLER's place in television history is safe and secured thank to her unforgettable role as the evil seductress who led an reptilian-alien invasion of the planet Earth in the mini-series turned-television series V back in the early eighties. The scene of her swallowing a guinea pig whole is right up there with that goblin on the wing of the airplane that a shell shocked WILLIAM SHATNER just so happened to be a passenger on in the TWILIGHT ZONE. But these days, BADLER's life isn't about getting lost in long gone sci-fi glory. Since the late aughts she has embarked on a musical career that has become known for  BOWIE-esque musical changes with every new release. And ROCKWIRED can proudly say that we were there from the beginning when the American expatriate (now based in Melbourne Australia) released her debut CD THE DEVIL HAS MY DOUBLE which boasted an eerie minimalist cabaret sound. She followed that album with TEARS AGAIN - a more exuberant release punctuated by orchestral touches and BADLER's willingness to take risks with her vocals (recalling DEBORAH HARRY of BLONDIE). Now BADLER truly comes centerstage as both a vocalist and a songwriter with a new album dueout later this year. The first taste of this new offering  is the single VOLCANO BOY - a curious, wistful bit of pop about  falling in lust which has proven to be BADLER's winning formula.

Ah the heartland! You don't get more meat and potatoes then Omaha Nebraska but after speaking with bassist  SAM "SPADE" MORRIS of the hair metal /sleaze rock band 3D IN YOUR  FACE, it sounds like hipsterdom - and the indie rock that  goes along with it  - has  taken over the music scene of the Gate City of the West. But be assured that  the guys from 3D IN OUR FACE ain't gonna let a bunch of PABST BLUE RIBBON swilling hipsters get in the way of a good time and good time is gonna be had by all when you blast the band's  new CD MIDNIGHT DEVIL's newest CD MIDNIGHT  DEVILS on your i-pod stereo system.  This band may look and sound like the  rock n roll that served as a soundtrack to the REAGAN-era  but what sets these guys  apart from  being a mere nostalgia  act is reckless abandon and good old fashioned heart as evidenced by the tracks GENERATION DURT, FORBIDDEN CITY and IN YOUR FACE.

ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE MAY 2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE

http://www.rockwired.com/breached.jpeg

How did the band decide on the name BREACHED?
Picking a band name is never easy. It kind of just popped out when we were spinning ideas and it seemed to match the music in some way.

Tell me a bit about everyone in the band and what brought all of you together.
DIESEL and RYAN have played together in previous bands and NEIL and I have known each other since we were kids. I was actually responding to an ad for a guitar DIESEL was trying to sell. I ended up buying it, we talked music and shared some ideas. He's been trying to buy the guitar back from me ever since.

http://www.rockwired.com/august2014.JPGOn August 2014, ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE - The world's first American Indian-owned  rock magazine - will present a special  issue entitled ABORIGINAL SOUNDS - A CELEBRATION OF CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN INDIAN AND FIRST NATIONS MUSIC. Featured on the cover will be hip hop artist FRANK WALN (Sicangu Lakota), MOB BOUNCE, SCATTER THEIR OWN (Oglala Lakota) and EDEN FINE DAY (Sweet Grass Nation). This will be the third issue in which ROCKWIRED will be highlighting Indigenous artists exclusively  and  Editor-In-Chief  BRIAN LUSH (Yankton Sioux) couldn't be more excited. "There is a whole big world out there when it comes to Indian Country and the music that is coming out of it.  There is so much that goes into music making. It's all about artistry, entertainment  and entrepreneurship and the artists that we hve selected for coverage in this upcoming issue put all of those things into practice." says LUSH "In a lot of other Native-themed publications, music artists are often treated like mere entertainment - like something that the reader should consider digesting ater they've read a more serious journalistic piece. But at ROCKWIRED it's different. We get inside the head of the music maker and bring to light the challenges that come with making a career out of music.  As an American Indian publisher, I am proud to be giving these American Indian recording artists the platform that they deserve. Even though this Native-themed issue comes out once a year ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE is open to submissions from Native recording artists at any time on our editorial calendar. I'm not an Indian once a year."

AND CUTS FROM THEiR NEW RELEASE SUBURBAN STREET TRASH
Having been born in the state of Virginia and raised inthe nearby State of Maryland, it is especially exciting for me to see the music scene of the D.C. Metropolitan area flourishing with  bands such as ELISIUM, ANOXIA, SILVERTUNG and BLACK ANGEL DOWN and an upcoming music festival in Fredericksburg VA called OPERATION ROCK FEST.  In the midst of this active rock music scene is a band called THREE STATE FAMOUS which effortlessly blends Blues, Rock, Hip-Hop, Jazz and Funk into a rather delectable musical stew that is all beef and carrots. Fuck the potatoes. For the past few years, they have been electrifying audiences in the Mid-Atlantic region with their musicality and showmanship are captured on their latest album SUBURBAN STREET TRASH.

If it's high-octane rock you're craving - with tons of attitude - then SILVERTUNG is your band, and 'DEVIL'S IN THE DETAILS' is your album. Produced/engineered by STEVEN WRIGHT (who has worked with everyone from SLIPKNOT to AVRIL LAVIGNE), the just-released 'DEVIL'S IN THE DETAILS' is chock full of no-nonsense, hard-hitting hard rock/heavy metal, as evidenced by the lead-off single, "COMING ALIVE," as well as such additional awesome cuts as "JUSTIFY" and " DEJA VU." Comprised of singer/guitarist SPEED, lead guitarist ZZ, bassist SKOOT, and drummer DANNO, SILVERTUNG has created a tremendous local buzz, around their hometown of Maryland. Undoubtedly, 'DEVIL'S IN THE DETAILS' is going to spread the word worldwide.

AND CUTS FROM THEiR DEBUT E.P.
The rock n roll path is a long and winding one filled with twists and turns and can lead you to destinations that are both exhilarating and at some turns horrifying.  At the moment, the Baltimore-based metal band BLACK ANGEL DOWN is maintaining a steady course two years after the release of their 8-song debut EP.  After years  as a member of the R&B outfit DRU HILL, lead singer NOKIO (formerly known as N-TITY) has made the sort of musical transformation that the music industry hasn't witnessed in years.  From slick R&B to balls to the wall metal, NOKIO's transformation into a rock n roll frontman can be felt and heard on such tracks as THE WIND, ROCKSTAR and SNIPERSCOPE  The world of active rock could use a superstar right about now and they've got one in NOKIO and the fellas from BLACK ANGEL DOWN.  Despite being two years old, their debut E.P. still packs a punch. Lets just hope that we won't be waiting too long for a follow up.

If music is something that you are born and reared with then there is just no getting out of it. Much like death and taxes. You see brothers MICHAEL and BRIAN HORNBUCKLE got their education in life and music early being sons of blues great BOBBY HORNBUCKLE.  These fellas grew up on the road in clubs and hotel rooms across the country and without them having to think about it they were carrying on  the musical legacy of their father while crafting their own musical identities as a duo and as individual artists. After spengina few years apart  the brother's HORNBUCKLE  are back together with their latest album VIRTUE  & VICE  - a fourteen song collection that is rooted in blues rock but  goes of in other stylistic directions. Most notably is the track COMPLICATED which showcases an irresistable reggae groove.

It's funny what living your life can prevent you from doing. From a very early age PAULA TOZER showed a love and an aptitude for music. One would think that going forth on a musical path would've been the way to go but life got in the way. Now with a family reared and raised TOZER is embarking on  that very musical journey that eluded her in the first place with the  release of her debut EP BLUE MUSE.  On her first outing, TOZER taps into a diverse array of musical influences that span  bluegrass, country, folk and even rock n roll. The stand out tracks on this stunning debut include  the Celtic elegance of FIDDLE PLAYERS LOVE,  the joyous SWEPT AWAY and the epic closer WINTERSLEEP which boasts the sort of  incendiary rock n roll stomp that would make the boys from BON JOVI oh-so envious.

Who says that an icy synthesizer sound doesn't  rock as hard as your  average guitar riff? Back in 2012 MAXI WILD  made presence known with the release of her debut EP  WHO THE FUCK IS MAXI WILD? which contained such delightfully stomping releases as TALK 2 LOUD and WRONG SIDE. When I spoke with MAXI over the phone she was recovering from abdominal surgery  and talking excitedly about her forthcoming album  which will take the electro feel of WHO THE FUCK IS MAXI WILD? and give the proceedings a raw, live feel with the assist of bassist  SEAN GONE and drummer DAN KUJAT. In this edition of ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES you'll hear a sneak peak at what folks can expect from this forthcoming release.  While the track FAITH is only a demo is will no doubt wet the appetite for more form this vivacious talent.

HELLiON
AND THEiR TWO DiSC ANTHOLOGY 
TO HELLiON AND BACK
Los Angeles-based female-fronted metallers HELLION have inked a contract with London-based HNE/CHERRY RED RECORDS.  The first of three HELLION albums set for release this year is a 2-disc anthology entitled TO HELLION AND BACK, which will be released on April 1, 2014, and the first 1,000 copies will be autographed by the band's singer, ANN BOLEYN. TO HELLION AND BACK chronicles the band's beginnings from 1982, to the present, and features new music from Hellion.  In 1983, when the term "female metal singer" did not exist, HELLION's demo recordings (released as a self-titled Mini-LP) climbed to Number 6 in England's rock charts.  In America, HELLION however was regarded by the corporate music world as "too heavy" for a band with a female singer.  Despite never releasing an album on a major record label, HELLION was the first female-fronted metal band to be featured on MTV and VH-1 and was also the first U.S. metal band to perform in the former-Soviet Union on a MONSTERS OF ROCK festival.TO HELLION AND BACK features a collection of fan-favourites, hard-to-find recordings, and previously unreleased tracks.  Among the collection are also two songs that were produced by RONNIE JAMES DIO at the legendary SOUND CITY recording studio. The musicians enlisted by powerhouse vocalist ANN BOLEYN for the new HELLION include drummer SIMON WRIGHT (AC/DC, QUEENSRYCHE, DIO, DIO DISCIPLES), keyboardist SCOTT WARREN (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL), Swedish import bassist BJORN ENGLEN (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, DIO DISCIPLES), and up-and-coming lead guitarist MAXXXWELL CARLISLE.

A lot can happen in three years, time doesn't stand still for anyone. Like a good whiskey aging in caskets over the years, making it better and better. That's the case for "WHITE CROW" this new musical chapter of LA-VENTURA! Recorded in a professional studio in France, the way it should be, under the watchful eye of producer DIDIER CHESNEAU, the band gave it their best. Mastering yet again done in France, by one of the bigger names in the bizz: BRUNO GRUEL. These factors make the new sound of the band which is huge, broad, massive and with conviction! The album counts ten songs which demonstrates evolution and passion from the band, as it never has done before. Never losing what made LA-VENTURA in the first place.

We're kind of making a hard right from most of the headbanging active rock in giving it up for the Nashville-based  alt-country, rock-a-billy band  JANE ROSE AND THE DEAD END BOYS.   In 2011 the band released their debut album POULTRICIDE and ever since the band has been a pack of traveling troubadours rocking crowds with the perfect mix and hillbilly swing and moody roots rock.  Now the band is putting the finishing touches on their upcoming CD DAMAGED GOODS. This time around JANE and the boys are certainly no worse for the wear  from life on the road. This new album proves that  they are committed pros and  JANE ROSE shines as the band's primary songwriter with a gusto the brings to mind the likes of LUCINDA WILLIAMS and POISON IVY of THE CRAMPS.

CONQUEST has bounced around the Midwestern United States long enough and now they're looking to take over the rest of the world. Even if it means they need to start a war. Once again produced by frontman DERRICK BRUMLEY and engineered by ADAM LONG, the album picks up where their previous effort, 'END OF DAYS,' left off. THE WAR WE RAGE includes a blistering cover of THE CHARLIE DANIELS BAND classic LONGHAIRED COUNTRY BOY and is a slamming 13 song tutorial in melody, power and pure metal mayhem. "We chose "LONG HAIRED COUNTRY BOY" as a cover because we used to play it back in the day and it was a lot of fun," says CONQUEST frontman DERRICK BRUMLEY. "It was much lighter back then but we thought it would be cool to kick it in the ass and re-do the track. It's a damn good time live!" With LIVE FREE OR DIE BRUMLEY looks at life from a soldier's point of view, while SCREAM FOR MY LIFE is just a great in your face, rip your head off thrasher.

STANDiNG PENANCE
AND THEiR BRAND NEW SiNGLE THE ACTiVE iNGREDiENT
It's inherent that a great rock n roll story is going to have great music but it is the story that cinches the deal and STANDING PENANCE is not just a band with great music and a story. They are a band with a treatment for a sleeper hit movie. This is a heavy metal band based out of Barbados and amid all of the calypso, reggae and electronic dance music the band has to contend with they also have to deal with the island's stance against rock n roll because it is the devil's music. This is why the band has been on a mission to immigrate Stateside and live out the rock n roll fantasy that they so richly deserve. ROCKWIRED became acquainted with these guys back in early 2013 when they were at the tail end of promoting their debut CD MY PAIN. Now the band is set to drop their sophomore album on April 12, 2014 with a little help from STEEL ENTERTAINMENT. In the meantime the band has released the first single THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT - a frenetic slice of thrash metal with guitarist HANJI's KIRK HAMMET-styled six string assault while front man TEARHEAD delivers a semi-comical warning of getting involved with a total bitch and how lying down with such woman can leave you down for the count. The new track shows that STANDING PENANCE is a band willing to take chances and move beyond the limitations of their respective genre. This band of Bajans has us curious for more. We're thinking they've gotta a better shot than a Jamaican bobsled team.

If the band A.D.D.

Now the band is just a couple of months away formtheir forthcoming CD tentativiely titled CORE  and with TADPOLE once again behind teh mixing board  the band delivers the verygoods that sets them apart from  all the other bands out there.

Rock n roll is firmly rooted in the blues but you wouldn't  know it if you scanned through your local active rock station. A band like SEVENTRAIN certainly hasn't lost sight of such origins but don't expect their  debut CD to be some old-time rootsy affair.  Instead what you get it prime cut hard rock that possesses something that is missing from a lot of music on this or that  rock radio station - balls. There are a variety of influences  to be heard on this gritty debut  album  boasting powerful vocals from singer JON CAMPOS, blistering guitars (ERIC HORTON and JEF POREMBA) soulful harmonies and the most thunderous rhythm section around (bassist STEVE ANDINO and drummer JOEL MAITOZA).

SCENT OF REMAINS has been "Spreading the Scent" all over the Southeastern United States since getting their start  in 2009; gaining a reputation as a band that plays with  high energy and heart-felt emotion. They've been fortunate enough to have shared the stage with many well-known metal acts like FEAR FACTORY, HATE ETERNAL, DEVIL DRIVER WATAIN, STATIC-X, GREEN JELLO, DAVEY SUICIDE, 9 ELECTRIC, KOBRA AND THE LOTUS and STRAIGHT LINE STITCH.

Since the late aughts, the Denver-based  RED TIDE RISING has torn up stages throughout the US with their ever-potent brand of  hard rock alongside such acts as NONPOINT,  3PILL MORNING, HURT, SOIL, KYNG and MY DARKEST DAYS.  In late 2013 the band released their newest album THE RISING and the title pretty much says it all in terms of the critical juncture that this band is at.  With THE RISING, the band has done it up proper  with help from producers JEFF McAREE (IN THIS MOMENT engineer) and JEFF KANAN (KELLY CLARKSON, MADONNA, RANDY JACKSON, STAIND, RICK RUBIN and others).  The album's title track and the songs COLD and  2:13 serve as the album's stand out moments but  THE RISING is an album that delivers over and over again with each track.

GALVANiZED SOULS
AND CUTS FROM THEiR DEBUT EP
Rock n roll purists are always the last to acknowledge the age bracket that is barely able to vote which is strange because in it's beginnings, rock n roll was all about  youth and not what a bunch of old folks approved of.  With the antics of JUSTIN BIEBER and MILEY CYRUS of late you can be assured that the generation gap is only going to get wider.  And then you have a band like GALVANIZED SOULS - a band comprised of teenage musicians who aren't  going all EDM like everybody else but are picking up guitars and basses and banging on drum sets.  Yes, the boys from GALVANIZED SOULS  are totally into their parents' music  which includes acts such as NINE INCH NAILS, ALICE IN CHAINS and FOO FIGHTERS and on their debut EP they  serve up a sound  they call "Modern Grunge" - heavy in volume as it is is in melody.  For a band that hasn't been together for that long they are getting notices for their  electrifying live shows, songcraft and musicianship that is way beyond their years.  The stand out tracks form these guys are SHUT YOU DOWN, BEHIND GREEN EYES and  a rockin' cover of the CHER-classic BELIEVE.
