PRESENTS AN EXCLUSiVE iNTERViEW WiTH MiKE BADURA OF THREE STATE FAMOUS
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.

AND CUTS FROM THEiR NEW RELEASE DEViL'S iN THE DETAiLS
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.

AND CUTS FROM THEiR NEW LP ViRTUE & ViCE
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.

AND CUTS FROM HER DEBUT EP BLUE MUSE
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.

For everyone out there who feels that the younger generation doesn't have what it takes to keep this rock n roll thing going for another sixty odd years, then BOSWELL is just the sort of band to hush you up with the release of their forthcoming EP BERYLLiUM  This Austin-based band is group of young folk with old souls  and a fondness for rock and  all of its many facets and almost all of them are explored in this five song EP.  Guitarists CAMERON COY and JEFFREY FERRER and drummer ALEX WILHELM serve up a rather electrifying melange of sound while singers MELANIE HEIDE and bassist JUSTIN VENNAY have a vocal chemistry that recalls the likes of GRACE SLICK and MARTY BALIN of  JEFFERSON AIRPLANE.  BERYLLIUM is the first offering from a relatively new band full of piss, vinegar and more importantly  talent

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.

Last year SIRSY was one of teh standout bands for ROCKWIRED with the release of their album COMING INTO FRAME. Despite the minimal lineup (MELANIE KRAHMER on vocals and drums and RICH LIBUTTI  on guitars) this dynamic duo boasts a big, full, ballsy sound which we heard evidenced on such tracks as CANNONBALL and LIONHEART.  In speaking with the band of two, there is always new music being worked but in between releases they have released an EP called GONER AND OTHER SORDID DELIGHTS which includes one studio track (GONER) and live recordings and  acoustic performances from this radio appearance and that live show.

PRESENTS AN EXCLUSiVE iNTERViEW WiTH ANN BOLEYN OF
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.

AND THEiR NEW EP WHiTE CROW
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.

One of the busiest bands in the Boston area since their 2008 founding, these five guys from Quincy, MA - the City of Presidents � infuse their joyfully schizophrenic mix of rock, funk, prog, and reggae with a seriously ironic, tongue-in-cheek twist on pop culture. THE VAN BURENS - JEFF "PINKY" KING (keys), EMMETT "MCGEE" KNOX (bass), GREG "SMITTY" SMITH (guitar) and brothers GREG  "SPITZY" SPITZ (guitar) and MATT "PAPA  BEAR" SPITZ (drums) -swap lead vocals and group harmonies over eclectic, exciting songs ripe with danceable grooves, stellar musicianship, clever songwriting, and a singular sense of humor.

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. (Analog Digital Disorder for those not in the know ) wants you to come away with anything it's that there ain't nothing "girlie" about  this female-fronted, Chicago-based band.  Immediately that conjures up memories of that old HANZ AND FRANZ sketch from  SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE but I'm digressing.  I'll be the first to tell you that  no one will come away after hearing  lead singer  MATILDA MOON's  charred vocals thinking that  A.D.D. is all about girls being girls.  In fact this is a rock band that possesses all of the virtues that many rock fans think is lacking in  today's music such as actual subject matter and  some ballsy guitar riffs.  Audiences have experienced the bands electrifying live performances and have taken a shine to their debut album produced by  TADPOLE ( 3 DOORS DOWN, DISTURBD). 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).

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.
