A Perfect Circle Announce U.S. and European Fall Tours In Support of ‘Eat The Elephant’

A Perfect Circle Announce U.S. and European Fall Tours In Support of ‘Eat The Elephant’

A Perfect Circle, who performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night, have announced Fall tours for both the U.S. and Europe.

The tour news arrives as the band celebrates the release of Eat The Elephant (https://AperfectCircle.lnk.to/EatTheElephantPR), A Perfect Circle’s first album in fourteen years and a release that was marked worldwide with the band gracing the covers of Revolver, Kerrang and Visionsmagazines. Rolling Stone said of the 12-track album, “Eat the Elephant is a moody, sensitive portrait of a band that decided to grow up and make a record that reflects where they are now as artists rather than trying to recapture the past” while The Atlantic described the collection as having a “well-honed sense of expansiveness, beauty, and rage.” The Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel-helmed outfit spent release eve in Las Vegas, where the pair took fan’s questions via a Facebook live Q&A(https://www.facebook.com/aperfectcircle/videos/1758689510841271/).

Eat The Elephant was released on Friday on double 180-gram black version as well as an indie retail exclusive limited-edition white 180-gram version that sold out immediately.

Garbage Announces US Tour in Support of 20th Anniversary Edition of ‘Version 2.0’

Garbage Announces US Tour in Support of 20th Anniversary Edition of ‘Version 2.0’

Garbage today announced a short US tour in support of the recently announced 20th anniversary edition of their legendary second album Version 2.0. The tour, which kicks off on September 29th in Seattle, WA and wraps on October 27th in Brooklyn, NY, will see them perform the classic album in full, as well as a number of B-sides from the reissue. Tickets for the tour will be on sale at 10:00am local time on April 27th and be available HERE. A complete list of upcoming US tour dates can be found below.

Garbage announced the 20th anniversary edition of Version 2.0 last month. Due for release on Stunvolume/PIAS on June 22, the package will feature the whole original album, as well as 10 B-sides from the era. Pre-order the digital album HERE and visit Garbage.com for updates on standard and deluxe Vinyl formats.The reissue’s first offering, the typically visceral “Lick The Pavement”, is available now HERE.

Version 2:0 is in my opinion the quintessential garbage record,” shared Garbage singer Shirley Manson. “We are all very grateful to the millions of people who took it to their hearts at the time it was released and to those who continue to love on it still“.

Initially released in May 1998, Version 2.0 spawned fan-favorites such as “Push It”, “I Think I’m Paranoid” and “Special”. Shortly after its release, the Recording Industry Association of America honored the album with a platinum certification for exceeding 1 million units sold. Version 2.0 went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide. The album was nominated for a total of four Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year and Best Rock Album. The album’s third single “Special” was further nominated the following year for Best Rock Song and for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group. The video for “Push It” was nominated for eight MTV Video Music Awards.

Speaking about the enduring legacy of the record, the band’s drummer and co-producer Butch Vig explains: “Version 2.0 is the sound of a band growing up, evolving, and more than anything, gaining confidence. When we started recording, we made a conscious decision to not re-invent ourselves, but rather take everything we learned from our debut album and filter it through the new digital technology we were grappling with. Sonically, the album has moments of razor sharp clarity and soft beauty. Indeed, it’s possibly our best album.”

Motörhead’s Röad Crew Beer Is Set To Take America By Storm!

Motörhead’s Röad Crew Beer Is Set To Take America By Storm!

MotörheadCamerons Brewery, and Global have announced that Röad Crew is officially coming to the USA and being brewed by Arcadia Brewing Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan.

This American IPA will sit around 6.2% ABV, a crushable hop-forward India Pale Ale with attitude that showcases a floral and citrusy hop character with just the right amount of malt sweetness. Röad Crew beer is perfect for all rock, beer and hop heads and goes down especially well whilst listening to Motörhead at a wonderfully obscene, lawn-killing volume.  Röad Crew will be available in bottles, cans, keg and even cask.Arcadia Brewing Co. was founded 1996 by Tim Suprise and is located on the riverfront in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a highly-regarded Craft Beer community, which is the original home to Gibson Guitars for 80+ years as well as Heritage Guitars and Kalamazoo Guitar Company.

“We began our trek into the Craft Beer world 22 years ago inspired by world-class, British-inspired beers, and becoming a partner with British icons Mötorhead, Camerons and Global Merchandising to bring Röad Crew to fans of great beer and heavy metal here in the US has our volume dial pegged to the max.” Tim Suprise – Arcadia Founder

Röad Crew was launched by Camerons in December 2015 and has gone on to be a massive success being exported to 22 countries and placed in 1200+ locations within the first 12 months in the UK, while also having major supermarket listings throughout the UK.

ABOUT MOTÖRHEAD:
An English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, Motörhead quickly rose to great prominence in the British punk and heavy metal scenes. Although they changed their line-up several times, Motörhead never compromised or changed their unique, raging sound, which saw the band and their music become a lifestyle for many people from all genres, whether rockers, punks or alternative.

As a power trio, they had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40. The albums OverkillBomberAce of Spades and particularly No Sleep ‘till Hammersmith cemented Motörhead’s reputation as a top-tier rock band. The band is ranked number 26 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. As of 2018, their Grammy-winning sound has sold more than 17 million albums worldwide. Road dogs extraordinaire, for the last 20+ years of their career, Motörhead were Kilmister, guitarist Phil Campbell, and drummer Mikkey Dee. In early 2015 they entered the studio to begin work on Bad Magic, which was released in late August 2015. It quickly became one of the band’s most successful albums, but sadly, Lemmy passed away on December 28, 2015. The band’s last record turned out to be a recording of two typically blistering sold-out shows from the Bad Magic tour, at Munich’s Zenith concert hall only a month prior to his passing.

Motörhead released 22 studio albums, 13 live recordings, 12 compilation albums, and four EPs over a career spanning 40 years. The Motörhead legacy (and lifestyle) lives strongly on through their music and loyal fans.

Godsmack Release Second Song And Title Track From New Album ‘When Legends Rise’

Godsmack Release Second Song And Title Track From New Album ‘When Legends Rise’

With their album release and tour set to kick off in a few weeks, GODSMACK has premiered their new song and the album’s title track “When Legends Rise” at Billboard.com.

The album is available for pre-order now (here) with instant downloads of first single “Bulletproof” and also “When Legends Rise.” At U.S. radio, “Bulletproof” is currently #3 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart and #4on the Mediabase published Active Rock chart.  The track is #2 in audience on both charts as well.  This week, “Bulletproof” also climbed to the #1 spot on Sirius XM Octane’s Big Uns Countdown.  As SULLY ERNA explained to Billboard, “When Legends Rise is not an egotistical statement as much as it’s a metaphorical way of kind of burning everything down to the ground and build it back up–a Phoenix rising from the ashes kind of vibe.”

“When Legends Rise” is the second song to be released from the multi-platinum band’s upcoming album of the same name that’s due out April 27 via BMG. That same day, the band–Sully Erna [vocals, guitar], Tony Rombola [guitar], Robbie Merrill [bass], and Shannon Larkin [drums]–will kick off their 2018live shows, performing at seven U.S. festivals through July 14 (see the dates below). Next up is their co-headlining six-week outdoor amphitheater tour with Shinedown which kicks off July 22 and hits more than 30 cities.

Earlier this month, GODSMACK premiered the official music video for “Bulletproof.” Directed by filmmaker Troy Smith, the song’s video is a short film that parodies the making of a rock video with cameos from Billy Ray Cyrusand Sebastian Bach. SULLY ultimately hires his crazy Italian cousin to direct the video and everything goes wrong. Click here to watch.

20 years since the release of their debut album and 20 million album sales later, GODSMACK are an even stronger animal than before. The proof is in the grooves of WHEN LEGENDS RISE, the band’s seventh studio album and their first album in four years.

Darrin Kenneth O’Brien, the Canadian reggae artist known as SNOW, has debuted the official music video for his latest release, “Informer 2018”.  The music video for the re-worked version of his chart-topping single from 1993 continues the 25th anniversary celebration of the release of Snow’s song “Informer”.  The brand new version of Snow’s breakout reggae single is currently available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms.

To bring the music video for “Informer 2018” to fruition, Snow teamed up with Roton Music and flew out to Bucharest, Romania to film for several days.  The video was directed for Radikal Records by acclaimed Romanian music video director Bogdan Pau of Next Generation Media Creative.   In the “Informer 2018” music video, Snow appears at a night-club with a surprise performance, as the club-goers vibe to the infectious beat of his newly re-worked version of “Informer”.  The vividly-colored, bright video embodies the vibrant new energy behind the new “Informer 2018”, a collaboration between Snow and one of the UK’s hottest production teams, Audiofreaks.

Written by Snow, M.C. Shan, and Edmond Leary, “Informer” was the lead single from Snow’s debut album, 12 Inches of Snow, which sold over 8 million records worldwide and was certified RIAA Platinum in the U.S. and CRIA Triple Platinum in Canada.  The infectious nineties classic “Informer” made U.S. history in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling and the highest-charting reggae single ever.  The song’s enduring popularity has continued from 1994, where Snow won a Juno Award for Best Reggae Recording, to 2017, when he received a SOCAN Lifetime Achievement Award.  For the new re-recorded, re-worked version of “Informer”, the award-winning producers in Audiofreaks gave the classic reggae hit a new dance club sound for 2018.  With Audiofreaks’ fresh new spin on Snow’s reggae phenomenon, “Informer 2018” is set to make waves on music charts around the world again.

As 2018 marks his return to the music industry, fans can expect to hear more from Snow in the coming months.  With exciting new remixes and collaborations yet to be revealed, Snow is excited to continue his career and ensure the enduring legacy of his name in music.

A Perfect Circle Release New Song “So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish”

A Perfect Circle Release New Song “So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish”

A Perfect Circle share new song “So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish” (https://aperfectcircle.lnk.to/FishAudioPR) as the release date for Eat The Elephant (April 20, BMG) nears. The song premiered last night on BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show as Daniel P. Carter’s Rockest Record and is available now to stream or download.

“We all cope with the absurd in our own manner,” said Maynard James Keenan in reference to the new track. “The Italian side of me produces and shares wine with friends in order to feel grounded and connected in the midst of all the madness. But once the wine is gone, the drunk and sarcastic Irish side of me goes straight for the unreasonable jugular. #comedyfirstandalways”

A Perfect Circle made their Coachella debut last night, playing several new songs including the aforementioned “So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish,” “Eat The Elephant” and “TalkTalk.” In contrast to the festival set, the band plays an intimate outing at Santa Barbara’s Arlington Theatre tomorrow night before returning to the desert for a second performance. On the eve of Eat The Elephant’s release (Thursday, April 19 at 7:15 pm pacific), Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel, in partnership with Revolver, will answer fan’s questions in a rare Q&A (tune in via the band’s Facebook page – facebook.com/aperfectcircle). A Perfect Circle play “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Monday, April 23.

Revolver, who feature the band as their current cover story, proclaimed “Eat The Elephant is a call to action – in a world that sometimes seems doomed.” Rolling Stone said the 12-song collection “is a moody, sensitive portrait of a band that decided to grow up and make a record that reflects where they are now…,” while Kerrang dubbed the album “a future classic.”

Eat The Elephant pre-orders, which offer instant downloads of “So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish,” “TalkTalk” (https://AperfectCircle.lnk.to/TalkTalkVEVO), “Disillusioned” (https://AperfectCircle.lnk.to/DisillusionedVideoPR) and “The Doomed” (http://smarturl.it/TheDoomedVideo) are available now: https://AperfectCircle.lnk.to/EatTheElephantPR). The 12-song album is available in multiple formats including digital, CD, double gatefold 180-gram vinyl and a box set with both the vinyl and CD as well as a prism and custom playing card deck. In advance of Record Store Day, a limited-edition independent retail exclusive version of the LP on white 180-gram vinyl with alternate cover will also be available.
