OCEANO RELEASE LYRIC VIDEO FOR NEW TRACK 'DAWN OF DESCENT'

Chicago deathcore heavyweights OCEANO have released a lyric video for a brand new track taken from their eagerly-anticipated new studio album, ASCENDANTS.

OCEANO's fourth full-length release sees the band's trademark vicious hybrid of bone-splintering brutality ascend into a new realm and reach previously undiscovered depths.  Their signature sound is revitalised through guitarists Scott Smith and Michael Kasper (CARNIVALE, DEAD TO FALL) and bassist Chris Wagner (MONSTERS).  Vocalist Adam Warren's visceral screams and guttural onslaught are further refined and expanded with near inhuman tone.

Watch the stunning 3D-animated lyric video for "Dawn of Descent" now at http://youtu.be/1QQcXYSh3_8

ASCENDANTS is due to be released on March 23rd in Europe and March 24th in the USA.  The album was recorded at The Nook studio in New Lenox, Illinois with producer Nick Nativo (MONSTERS).

BOLT THROWER 'THE EARACHE PEEL SESSIONS' LIMITED EDITION VINYL OUT NOW

A brand new, vinyl-only edition of the classic BOLT THROWER 'Peel Sessions' recorded for legendary Radio One DJ John Peel is out now.

Recorded between 1988 and 1990, the vinyl features 12 tracks which chart the development of the band from early punk-influenced recordings through to the more death metal approach of the final session, including raw versions of classics such as "War Master" and "Drowned in Torment".

From the very earliest days of Earache Records, BBC National Radio's John Peel was a huge supporter of the Earache label and its extreme grindcore bands.  Peel first offered BOLT THROWER a session in 1988, and invited them back at the end of 1988 and again in 1990 to the hallowed Maida Vale studios to lay down some classic recordings.

BOLT THROWER - THE EARACHE PEEL SESSIONS is available now on vinyl LP in black as well as the following limited edition colours:

100 - Forgotten Existence (SOLD OUT)
200 - Eternal War (red with white & black splatter)
300 - Drowned in Torment (purple with blue splatter)

RIVAL SONS ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN TOUR FOR EARLY 2015

VIDEO LINK: "Good Things” http://bit.ly/1snOf2e

"They craft near-perfect garage-rock songs to hang the thrills and frills from." - Kerrang!
"A powerhouse of big riffed rock ‘n’ roll" - Q Magazine
"..a cavalcade of fuzzy, hulking riffs, swinging psychedelic grooves and hollered vocals" - Mojo
"Sun kissed psychedelia and irresistible hooks, with the band’s soul, funk and blues influences thrust joyously to the fore… If you thrilled to the Black Keys it’s time to meet your new favourite band" - The Guardian
"..sheer unadultarated greatness" - Classic Rock

Long Beach, California's RIVAL SONS are currently winding up the UK leg of their European tour, and are delighted to announce they will be heading back in March and April 2015 which will see them headline the prestigious Roundhouse in London.  Tickets go on sale THURSDAY 18TH DECEMBER 2014 – 10AM.

The band recently performed on Later With Jools Holland, following another TV appearance in the USA on the Late Show with David Letterman and a phenomenal performance at the star-studded Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards in LA.  They also fitted in a last minute support slot with Lenny Kravitz at Wembley Arena.

With elements of psychedelia and more than a nod to soul, the new RIVAL SONS album ‘Great Western Valkyrie’ received rave reviews when it was released earlier this year. It was rated the No.1 album of 2014 by Classic Rock magazine as well as hitting the Top 20 albums of the year in Kerrang magazine. This, their fifth record in as many years saw the band yet again recording live in Nashville, using '50s gear borrowed from Sun studios, acknowledging their heritage, but always having their eyes and ears focussed on the 21st Century.

There will be a new RIVAL SONS single in January 2015. ‘Good Things’  is a stroll through the land of possibilities that highlights the soulful melodies of enigmatic singer Jay Buchanan, shows off the signature guitar tones of Scott Holiday whilst the powerhouse rhythm section of Michael Miley on drums and the sultry grooves of Dave Beste on bass pin the whole song down.
