Corey Feldman Doubles Fall Tour Dates And Gives Back To Hurricane Victims

Corey Feldman Doubles Fall Tour Dates And Gives Back To Hurricane Victims

Due to selling out venues across the country, legendary showman and pop culture icon Corey Feldman has extended his Heavenly US Angelic Tour schedule by doubling the dates previously announced for the fall. Feldman and his angelic band have entertained audiences with their theatrical and fun performances featuring lasers, lights, costumes, and signature talented all female band of Angels, with a few changes in the lineup as Corey is always trying to give new talent the chance to entertain audiences. Feldman stated, “this company was designed to give as many young female artists a chance to showcase their talents as possible, so I will keep changing the faces a bit.”

In addition to doubling the dates, Corey will be doubling the fun and giving his fans the experience they’ve come to expect with hit songs from his catalogue and iconic movies. This time, Corey will also be giving back. Corey and the Angels will be returning to Houston for the second time this year, doing a very special fundraiser for the Hurricane Relief fund. Feldman will also be contributing a portion of his ticket sales to the cause.

The tour will also include a special Halloween performance in St Charles Illinois, and the band will be visiting some new areas they are yet to visit such as Phoenix, Salt Lake City, and Flint Michigan. Feldman specifically chose several controversial areas with the intention of bringing their message of love and light to those who need it most right now.

At the completion of this run, Corey and his Angels will have performed this critically acclaimed show 80 times this year.

Cheap Trick are an indisputable American institution, beloved around the globe since 1974 for their instantly identifiable, hugely influential, brand of pop rock ‘n’ roll. The band – Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass guitar), and Daxx Nielsen (drums) – are true pioneers with an unparalleled streak of certifiably classic tunes, from “He’s A Whore,” “California Man” and “Dream Police” to “Surrender,” “I Want You To Want Me” and the worldwide #1 hit single, “The Flame.”

2016 saw Cheap Trick’s long awaited induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The induction honored both the band and the pioneering sound that has earned them total record sales well in excess of 20 million featured appearances and more than 40 international gold and platinum certifications. Cheap Trick closed the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony with an show-stealing performance of “Surrender,” “Dream Police,” and “I Want You To Want Me,” prompting Rolling Stone to rave, “Their smoking three-song set (was) played to perfection, with Zander hitting all the notes he hit at Budokan back in 1978.” Members of the evening’s other top inductees – including longtime friend Steve Miller – then joined the band for a memorable all-star jam on Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That A Shame” – a song famously featured on the immortal CHEAP TRICK AT BUDOKAN.

WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT!, with the album’s first single “Long Time Coming,” enjoying an unprecedented run of 14 weeks at No. 1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart and, received loud applause from the press following its June 2017 release, with Paste flat out raving, “Having been an active band for more than four decades, Cheap Trick continues to be a model of freakish consistency…Quick, think of any other American rock band formed in ’70s who is still putting out albums in the modern era that not only don’t embarrass the band but repeatedly revitalize their career. The list starts and stops with one name: Cheap Trick. They’re not going anywhere, so you might as well start listening.” “The energy levels are astounding,” shouted Classic Rock, “with producer Julian Raymond extracting a sonic attack that makes Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson and Daxx Nielsen sound like they’ve been locked in an industrial hangar with a bunch of AK-47s.” “If 2016’s terrific BANG ZOOM CRAZY…HELLO was a long awaited comeback after a seven year lapse, then this year’s rapid follow-up shows that was no anomaly,” declared American Songwriter. “Few acts inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as Cheap Trick deservedly was in 2016, are cranking out music as fresh, honest, energized and explosive as these guys have released in the past two years. And if this recent burst in activity keeps going, they will be the poster boys for how ageing rock and rollers can stay relevant without selling out or trying to be hip…Long Live Cheap Trick.”

Morrissey Announces U.S. Tour Dates In Support of ‘Low in High School’ Album

Morrissey Announces U.S. Tour Dates In Support of ‘Low in High School’ Album

Morrissey has revealed a full U.S. tour in support of his new studio album Low in High School (out November 17 on Etienne/BMG). Backed by his full live band, each performance promises to be an intimate evening with Morrissey where he will perform many of his most well known fan favorites as well as new material from Low in High School, including lead single “Spent The Day In Bed.” Additionally, on October 20th, a special five LP box set deluxe version of The Smiths’ The Queen is Dead will be released to celebrate what is perhaps the band’s most iconic album.

The full itinerary is enclosed and on Morrissey’s official Facebook page.

Earlier this month, Morrissey made national headlines surrounding the announcement that he will be making his long-awaited return to the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, November 10. The show sold out almost instantly on the first day of the on-sale, and a second date on Saturday, November 11 has been added. Billy Idol will be the special guest at both engagements.Tickets are on sale now for the Saturday show.

“Spent The Day In Bed” has been called an “ode to self-care” by The AV Club and has received plaudits from Rolling Stone, NPR Music, and Billboard, while Stereogum lauded its “slickly theatrical” imagery. You can listen to the official audio below. CLICK HERE to pre-order Low in High School.

Recognized as one of the most influential artists of all time, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and Britpop, and his music acts as a rite of passage for all who discover alternative music. His lyrics, at times blunt and fearless, other times vulnerable and poignant, continue to resonate with listeners around the world with their unmatched emotional depth and theatrical, poetic delivery. After The Smiths, Morrissey achieved greater success as a prolific solo artist. All 10 of his solo albums have entered the Top 10 on the UK album charts, including three entries at No. 1. In 2013, Morrissey published his record-breaking autobiography on Penguin Classics, immediately topping the best-seller list with literary reviewers hailing it a masterpiece in writing and prose. Pitchfork called him “one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture,” and the UK’s Independent declared, “Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime.”

We have been given a new lease on life. As individuals, this is the happiest we have been in a very long time.”

The song, and accompanying video, arrives following the U.S. debut via SiriusXM Octane.

Asking Alexandria spent the summer recording the new album, with From First To Last’s Matt Good (Memphis May Fire, Upon a Burning Body) and mixer Taylor Larson (Periphery). The album’s title and cover art will be revealed soon.

Asking Alexandria is Ben Bruce (guitar/vocals), Cameron Liddell (guitar), Sam Bettley (bass), James Cassells (drums) and Danny Worsnop (vocals).

Europe Unveil Title Track “Walk The Earth” Single Out Now; Album Out October 20th

Europe Unveil Title Track “Walk The Earth” Single Out Now; Album Out October 20th

EUROPE is pleased to announce the release of their title track and first single “Walk The Earth” from their up and coming new studio album WALK THE EARTH out October 20th.

WALK THE EARTH is now available for pre-order from the links below:
Jewel case CD: http://hyperurl.co/EuropeWTECD
Special Edition CD/DVD Digi-book: http://hyperurl.co/EuropeWTESE
White coloured vinyl: http://hyperurl.co/EuropeWTFLP
MP3: http://hyperurl.co/EuropeWTEMP3

If EUROPE’s 2015 album WAR OF KINGS was the album that made the rock world realise what a formidable act EUROPE had become then WALK THE EARTH is the album that is set to establish the band as one of the most exciting contemporary rock acts of current times.

“We’re simply a different band today,” says lead singer Joey Tempest. “Ever since we started up again in 2004, we have constantly explored our limits and new parts of our musical universe. After around 1,000 shows, we feel comfortable just improvising, jamming and pushing our lyrics and songwriting with much more ease. We have now been together recording and making albums longer than the early period of the band. Five albums in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Now six records with WALK THE EARTH. When we started up again in 2004 we all agreed to think ‘long-term,’ to take the long road and build up a new relationship with listeners and media. We all agreed on writing together, owning our music, and license it out to labels that really care and support us in the long run.

“We also agreed to not look back! And never stop looking for that deeper expression. We don’t have much in common with our contemporaries from back then. We have taken a different path, making sure we are constantly moving forward. We have little regard for outside influences and opinions. In order to enjoy this new journey and feel creative, it needed to be completely on our terms.

“In a EUROPE live show, there is of course some room for nostalgia, but in the studio there is none. Every album is a reaction to the one before, a new journey a new adventure. The music of a rock band needs to constantly move, challenge, upheave, evolve or the band will automatically become a nostalgia act. We are proud of our past and previous albums, but we simply can’t identify, recapture, emulate any of it. We simply can’t write like that even if we wanted to. We are a new act with a different expression.

“Over the years, we have learned how important recording techniques and recording equipment is by trying to search and research which producers, engineers and recording studios that can actually inspire and keep us wanting to be adventurous and daring. It has now taken us six albums to get here.”

The new album WALK THE EARTH will feature original artwork by famed Los Angeles artist Mike Sportes of Filth Mart.

“We were in the studio a few days into recording and Dave (Cobb, Producer) comes in wearing this very cool T-Shirt with one of Mike’s designs on it. Immediately we knew we had to check Mike’s other work and have him come up with an exclusive design for us based on the vibe of the album. We are very proud to have his amazing artwork as the WALK THE EARTH album cover!’ – Joey Tempest on the appointment of Mike Sportes to do the cover.

WALK THE EARTH tracklisting:
1. Walk The Earth
2. The Siege
3. Kingdom United
4. Pictures
5. Election Day
6. Wolves
7. GTO
8. Haze
9. Whenever You’re Ready
10. Turn To Dust

From the anthemic sound of the opening track “Walk The Earth” to the heavy vibe that is “Haze,” from the instant melody of “Election Day” to the lyrical content of “Kingdom United,” WALK THE EARTH is the album that should see EUROPE rightly acclaimed as a band at the height of their powers. The wonderful melodies and depth of Joey Tempest’s vocals along with a powerhouse rhythm section and the guitar playing of John Norum, one of the great underrated guitarists. Norum’s guitar playing shines across the record. This is an album that is big in its scope and sound. Much like previous album “War Of Kings,” WALK THE EARTH is an album that has instant appeal but is also an album that needs to be lived with, in order to uncover it’s depth. The album was recorded at famed Abbey Road Studios in London with Grammy@ winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton).

Late 2016 saw EUROPE perform a series of “The Final Countdown Anniversary Shows” across Europe – culminating in a show at The Roundhouse in London. The show has been immortalised in a July 2017 DVD release The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show – Live at the Roundhouse.

Preceding the landmark event, fans were also treated to a live performance of EUROPE’s last album, 2015’s WAR OF KINGS, a release which re-established them as one of the top rock bands in the world.

Since forming in 1979 EUROPE have sold over 25 million albums, toured across the world and become one of the greats of modern rock music. The bands all conquering THE FINAL COUNTDOWN album has alone sold over 15 million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was #1 in 25 countries.

BMG has announced the release of IRON MAIDEN’s The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter on November 17th in the U.S. [through Warner Music rest of world] This live recording comprises 15 songs captured during The Book Of Souls World Tour, which covered 39 countries across six continents during 2016 and 2017, and was seen by over two million fans.The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter will be released physically in CD, deluxe CD & vinyl audio formats, with the concert film available to stream free online or as a digital download – full details below.

Produced by Tony Newton and Iron Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris, the album is based on this year’s set list and is a faithful record of the epic show, including six songs from The Book Of Souls, the band’s most recent studio album, along with many other classics and fan favorites.

Steve comments, “We spent a huge amount of time working on this as I wanted to get it as close to the Maiden live experience as I possibly could and to represent our fans from different parts of the world. This meant listening to literally hours upon hours of tapes from every show, to select material and construct a sound that would run consistently across the whole album and capture the excitement of a new country like El Salvador alongside such regular favorites as Donington or Wacken.”

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood adds, “The Book Of Souls World Tour was a huge undertaking, not least for Bruce who started the tour singing in public for the very first time since recovering from throat cancer. He also piloted Ed-Force One, upgraded last year from a Boeing 757 to a 747 so we could go further and faster to visit some fantastic cities and fans all round the world. This year continued that excitement bringing us our most successful North American and U.K. tours ever. It was a very special tour in a great many ways so we felt we wanted to document it for both ourselves and for our fans. Steve has done an incredible job putting together this set from cities around the world and we’ve made sure the deluxe CD will be available in a matching book format to The Book of Souls release.

“On top of all that the release will be celebrated by an event that is a Maiden first: a free live streaming premiere of the concert film, as a thank you to our loyal fans around the world. We hope that the global Maiden community will all enjoy coming together to watch this special event online. Many of you will be in it as there is footage from a whole host of the places we played on this momentous tour. ”

More details on how to take part in this one-off event will be published on IronMaiden.com
shortly.

The full tracklisting and the cities they were recorded in, is as follows:

Letters To Cleo Announce Vinyl Releases of Their First 3 Albums and 3 Nights At The Paradise!

Letters To Cleo Announce Vinyl Releases of Their First 3 Albums and 3 Nights At The Paradise!

Boston’s Alt. Rock pioneers Letters to Cleo are excited to announce that their first three albums Aurora Gory Alice, Wholesale Meats and Fish and Go  will be available on vinyl for the first time ever. To celebrate the release of the vinyl the band will  be revisiting each of these albums from front to back  over a  three night run at The Paradise in Boston November 16-18th. Thursday November 16th they will be performing Aurora Gory Alice, Friday November 17th will be Wholesale Meats and Fish and Saturday November 18th will be Go. Blake Babies (Juliana Hatfield, John Strohm, Freda Love) will be supporting on all three nights.  The vinyl is a limited edition pressing that will be available  exclusively at the three shows at the Paradise, on the Letters to Cleo website and at select Newbury Comics stores.

Ticket and vinyl packages will be available for pre-order on the Letters to Cleo website on Thursday (9/21). Single day and three day passes for the shows will be available on Ticketmaster.com on Friday 9/22 at 12pm EST.  “We have been hoping for a vinyl re-release of the Cleo catalog for years and with these albums having been made under an old record contract I wasn’t confident it would ever happen,” says Michael Eisenstein. “Thanks to a lot of hard work, it’s actually happening. We knew we wanted to do something special to commemorate this big 3 album vinyl re-release and when Greg (McKenna) suggested playing all three records in their entirety live, I shot it down right away. ‘It’s too much work! You’ll thank me later!’  The more he talked about it, the cooler the idea seemed. I’m pretty sure every song in our catalog has been performed live, but some only a few times and it’s been 20 years or more.  It’s an exciting challenge, that’s for sure.”

Letters to Cleo formed in 1990 in Boston, lead by guitarist Greg Mckenna and singer Kay Hanley. The band came onto the National spotlight with the release of their first hit single “Here & Now,” released by Giant Records (a subsidiary of Warner Brothers Records). The song reached No. 10 on the Billboard Modern Rock Singles chart. The band’s music could be heard on many of the top TV shows and films throughout the 1990’s, including the cult classic 10 Things I Hate About You, where the band contributed 4 songs to the soundtrack and were feature in the film.  The band played their last show in 2000 and each of the members went on to have successful careers working in different areas of music from production, writing, performance, musical directing etc.

The original members reunited in the fall of 2016 for the release of the Back to Nebraska EP, their first new music from Letters to Cleo in seventeen years.  ABC News said “These five songs deliver exactly the kind of infectious power-pop that made them famous” and the Boston Globe said “It’s full of sweetly sour confections that recall the Alternative Nation era, like “Can’t Say,” which undercuts its sunshine-bright chorus with a growling bridge, and the brooding title track, which showcases lead singer Kay Hanley’s pensive side.”

In addition to performing the first three albums in full, the band will be playing fan favorites and new songs from Back to Nebraska

Tom Keifer To Release Deluxe Edition of ‘The Way Life Goes’ In October

Tom Keifer To Release Deluxe Edition of ‘The Way Life Goes’ In October

TOM KEIFER once sang, “You’re only going once around the ride.”

He’s proving that theory wrong with the highly anticipated release of THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION, an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, THE WAY LIFE GOES, chock full of bonus content and special artwork.

THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION is finally set for release October 20 on Cleopatra Records. Pre-orders are now available on Amazon and on Cleopatra’s website. The package will include the original album that has been remastered by Richard Dodd (Kings of Leon, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum). It also has two brand new studio tracks recorded in Nashville by three-time Grammy® Award-winner Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) with KEIFER and his bandmates (#keiferband: Tony Higbee, Billy Mercer, Paul Simmons, Paul Taylor, Savannah Keifer, and Kendra Chantelle). Fans will finally get to hear the long-awaited studio recording of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends,” which KEIFER performs at all of his concerts, plus a powerful new take on the Cinderella classic “Nobody’s Fool,” newly recorded as a duet with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm

“The reason that I picked up guitar, the reason that I sing the way I do, was all because of that guy,” said Hale of KEIFER’s influence on her at a young age. The two first performed “Nobody’s Fool” live together in Atlantic City, NJ in September 2013.

“I remember the first time seeing Lzzy perform live at the House of Blues show in Atlantic City and being absolutely floored by the power of her voice and performance,” KEIFER continues. “She’s an amazing artist and has been a great inspiration to me as well.”

There will also be a bonus DVD with music videos, tour clips, and “The Way Life’s Goin,’” a 30-minute documentary produced by Tammy Vega (KEIFER’s longtime official photographer) about the creation of the bonus tracks, exclusive interviews with the band filmed during the new recording sessions, and live footage.

THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION will be wrapped in an all new six-panel digipak designed by artist David Calcano (creator of the Fantoons comic strip series) with 20 pages of one-of-a-kind unique illustrations depicting each song.

As KEIFER explains, “Everything from the new artwork, documentary, videos and bonus tracks contained in the DELUXE EDITION is a sum of all the amazingly talented people who came into our world as a result of the initial release. The two bonus tracks were specifically chosen and recorded as we felt them both to be special collaborations that came about while touring for THE WAY LIFE GOES.”

New band members Jarred Pope (drums) and Kory Myers (keyboards/vocals) join the #keiferband lineup in 2017. Writing has begun for a follow-up to THE WAY LIFE GOES with recording slated for Fall 2018.

Upon its initial release, THE WAY LIFE GOES garnered rave reviews. To wit:

“A collection of 14 blues howlers, Stones-y rock and, yes, big ballads, the album calls to mind Cinderella but with an even more rootsy undercurrent.” –Joseph Hudak, Rolling Stone

“…14 songs that stay true to form – killer blues-rock playing and tones, hooks galore, and strong songwriting. If you’re a fan of harder-edged rock and long to hear genuinely enjoyable new tunes, it may be just the thing; the opener, ‘Solid Ground,’ offers pure Keifer guitar and vocals with a feel reminiscent the Stones’ Exile On Main Street while the remaining tracks are, much like his life the last 15 years, an up-and-down ride.”–Ward Meeker, Vintage Guitar

“…the record features such vital, vibrant guitar tones and parts that are immediate and honest.  They also have that cool, interlocking, layered quality that made so many classic rock albums so, well, classic.  Keifer flat-out knows how to play vibey guitar parts with ungodly tone, and fans of the Stones, Zeppelin, Steve Marriott, and early Aerosmith should definitely take notice.  And, although you wouldn’t wish hemorrhaging vocal cords on anyone, this guy is singing better than ever to complement his great 6-string parts.” –Matt Blackett, Guitar Player

THE WAY LIFE GOES marks the first release of any kind by Keifer since Cinderella’s last record, 1994’s STILL CLIMBING. In many ways, it picks up right where the band left off. The first single, ‘The Flower Song,’ echoes ‘Maggie May,’ the familiar grit in Keifer’s voice approximating Faces-era Rod Stewart; but for the most part the album replicates the blend of pounding hard rock, soaring ballads and blues and country tinges that characterized Cinderella’s sound beginning with LONG COLD WINTER.”–Shaun Brady, Philadelphia City Paper,

“’The Flower Song,’ his premiere solo offering, smacks of the Black Crowes/the Faces.” –Katherine Turman, Village Voice (NY)
