Brooklyn hard rock legends LIFE OF AGONY have completed work on their new album and Napalm Records debut A Place Where There’s No More Pain, which will be released April 28th via Napalm Records. Today the first video offering for the album’s title track “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” has been unleashed.   The video was directed by Leigh Brooks of Firebelly Films and was shot predominately in Hamburg, Germany with a few shots from the London show on LOA’s recent European tour.  Video was premiered by  Popmatters.com and you can watch it here. HERE.

“We were looking to capture the raw energy of our live show with the new video for ‘A Place Where There’s No More Pain’, says bassist Alan Robert. “As a longtime LOA fan, Director Leigh Brooks instantly knew exactly what we were going for. He’s been a fan since the early nineties and we finally met at the Electric Ballroom gig in London last year. He shot that show and we immediately became friends. He’s a super talented guy with great vision and a deep passion for this band. He and his crew got pretty banged up shooting this one (laughs). They got right in the pit with their equipment – the poor guys! Leigh was one of the very first people outside of the band to hear the new music and he was completely psyched to be involved.”

SNOVONNE Details New Album “THE CHILD AND THE BITCH”


Sno.jpg

Snovonne is known for her melancholic and psychoanalytic creations, which often reveal things one would rather not see.  The new album The Child And The Bitch is exactly that and so much more.

“The concept carries a strong psychoanalytic undertone.” Snovonne says. “It’s about perception, points of view. It’s the battle between two voices – how you were born vs. what the world turns you into. There’s no right or wrong, both the entities have values to stand on, but that doesn’t stop them from clashing… I wanted to give room to both voices.”

The album will be introduced with the super-melancholic “Best Days”.  Coming out March 17th, the video presents the album’s concept of duality, musically and visually.

The third official full-length album The Child And The Bitch (subtitled “Chronicles 1984 – 2014”) has been in production since 2015 and is now scheduled for release on April 17th. 

“Best Days” Trailer! 

With all artistic gears spinning to a maximum, it’s a big leap forward – not only its heavily emotional and expressive content, but also in its audio and visual presentation. Heavy-hitting, stomping riffs are supported by epic, aggressive orchestral arrangements and cut through with razor-sharp melancholy.

Sno´s grandfather was, in his time, a reputable psychiatrist with a passion for fine arts and swing music. That had a significant influence on her artistic life.

She continues: “I’ve always been fascinated by old medical journals and books… Grew up around it, family of doctors… So given the self-analytical tone of the record, it was only natural to make the artwork an old medical journal. The lyrics are my entries with dates when they were written, some of them I wrote when I was very young. As a parallel, I put in old articles from the 20’s, which I scanned from the original personal scrapbook of Dr. Frederick Finch Strong. He was a renowned persona of the last century – promoter of electrotherapy, cutting-edge in developing methods of treatment, and highly esoteric and eccentric. He was the first American to employ Tesla Coils therapeutically.”

TOGETHERFEST- YOUTH OF TODAY / AMERICAN NIGHTMARE / TRASH TALK & MORE


TogetherFest comes to London’s Electric Ballroom next Saturday the 25th of February 2017.

TogetherFest featuring YOUTH OF TODAY, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, TRASH TALK, VANISHING LIFE and WOLF DOWN will be touring around Europe before coming to London.

unnamed-98

Tickets on sale now at See Tickets: http://www.seetickets.com/event/togetherfest-youth-of-today-american-nightmare/electric-ballroom/1042178 

First up is Germany’s own WOLF DOWN opening the night with the fervor and respite of their recent Incite & Conspire LP. Known to hate fascists and welcome refugees, Wolf Down bring the political heat to the TogetherFest mix, a one, two, punch with LOVE tatted on the right fist and HATE on the left.

Next up VANISHING LIFE throw down like Jaques Lacan vs. Greg Ginn. On the strength of their recent debut LP Surveillance TogetherFest will be VL’s first appearance outside of the US. Featuring members of …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Bad Religion, Rise Against and Quicksand, VL is a true amalgam of assassins urging you to enjoy yourself because it’s later than you think… Only then L.A.’s TRASH TALK take the stage like a bathtub full of meth spilling into your unsuspecting eyes and ears. T.T. the band are an extension of their art collective located in one of the few remaining industrial corners of Los Angeles. Trash Talk have been touring actively since 2005 and have taken their unique strain of HC from house shows to festivals around the world culminating in their fourth full length No Peace released on Odd Future Records, crowd participation is mandatory.

This year it’s a unique honor for TogetherFest to present one of the most influential and innovative hardcore bands of the last two decades, Boston’s own AMERICAN NIGHTMARE. A.N. brought a much needed emotional depth and dark imagery to a 90’s hardcore scene that still looks and sounds like the future. A.N. pointed the way for countless bands, Glassjaw, My Chemical Romance and New Found Glory to name a few that site AN as a major influence. TogetherFest will be A.N.s first European tour since reforming in 2011.

And to close the night is the legendary Youth Of Today in classic 88’ line up, featuring Ray Of Today, Porcel on guitar, Sam Seigler on drums and yours truly on bass. Back in 89’ Y.O.T. was the first New York Hardcore band to tour Europe, seven months later the Berlin Wall fell. Coincidence? Perhaps, but after a handful of raved about Festival appearances, TogetherFest marks Y.O.T.’s triumphant return to tour form. Wake up Pegida, U.K.I.P and Donald Trump, at TogetherFest it’s time to “BREAK DOWN THE WALLS!!!”.

SATURDAY 25TH FEBRUARY, ELECTRIC BALLROOM , LONDON

ALTERNATIVE PRESS MUSIC AWARDS Announce ANDY BIERSACK as Host


“The GRAMMYs of Alternative Music” – TIME Magazine
CLEVELAND, OH – The Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy Drink are thrilled to present this year’s host – none other than inimitable Black Veil Brides frontman, alt-pop artist and raconteur extraordinaire Andy Biersack – more recently recognized by his solo moniker Andy Black!
Since bursting onto the national scene in 2010 as the striking frontman of rock superstars Black Veil Brides, Biersack has rapidly risen to greatness-not only topping the music charts, but weaving his way into the hearts of fanatical followers worldwide. After reaching next-gen hard rock icon status with the release of four chart topping full-length albums, various other releases and singles with Black Veil Brides, Biersack ventured out on his own – starting his alt-pop solo project under the name Andy Black. His latest solo release, The Shadow Side, debuted on the charts worldwide. Cinematic in scope, ambitious in concept, yet down-to-earth in execution, The Shadow Side is as decidedly personal for Biersack as his work in Black Veil Brides is outspoken, taking a further step outward with its intimate confessional vibe and galvanizing populism.
Biersack states, “I am so honored to be hosting this year’s fourth annual APMAs. I’ve attended every APMAs, and I’ve been fortunate to have a favorite moment every year. As host, I want to make people feel happy and create favorite moments for them, too. I want them to be stoked, whether they are attending the event or watching it from their homes.”
 
Alternative Press CEO Mike Shea adds, “Andy is one of the most dynamic and engaging musicians I think I’ve ever met. Besides being an amazing frontman on the rock stage, he’s also one of the funniest off-stage. Over the past year, he’s been bringing his comedic side to fans while touring with his Andy Black project, and when we heard that he was interested in hosting the APMAs, we thought that there could be some real magic here in the making. Even before we got down into the details he had already dissected other hosts’ successes and failures on other award shows and came to us with an entire analysis of what he could bring to the APMAs. We are really excited about his enthusiasm and dedication to the show and we know that music fans worldwide are going to be happily surprised to see the results!”
 
Last summer, after another successful year of extraordinary performances, exciting surprises, interactive onsite activities and an action-packed, star-studded red carpet, the Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy Drink further solidified itself as the biggest, most popular celebration of alternative music on the planet. In December, the APMAs announced that this year’s event would return to Alternative Press‘ home city of Cleveland, Ohio on July 17! The APMAs promises even more of what fans have come to expect from the show- huge stars and incredible performances – presented on a scale worthy of the most exciting genres in music.
Details regarding the 2017 APMAs venue, tickets and VIP packages, nominees, honorees, attending/performing artists, red carpet appearances, surrounding events and more will be announced soon via www.altpress.com/apmas.
