“We’re happy to present the second single off of our debut full length ‘No Character : No Crown’, titled ‘Invidia’.

This song goes out to everyone struggling, whether you take longer than others or not, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Pre-order No Character : No Crown and hear the new single below.

About Voids:

The core of Voids was originally formed in fall of 2012, as a band called From Far Away. As a group they have shared the stage with numerous national acts such as This Or The Apocalypse, I the Breather, Becoming the Archetype , Onward To Olympus, Fathoms, A Hero A Fake, One Year Later, When The Ocean Meets The Sky, and My Ticket Home. They have played in numerous states and multiple tours, debuting their EP, Recover | Repeat.

In addition to releasing three singles, building a local fanbase, and signing to At Your Command Records; they decided to part ways with the name due to member changes and wanting a fresh start with a different outlook. Which lead them to announce the new name, Voids.

Formed in late 2015, Voids is a four-piece metalcore band from Hagerstown, Maryland. Our message as a band revolves around the addictions that affect the lives of many in a negative way. We want people to turn towards our music as a healthy way to cope with the problems they are having with their lives; rather than ones that can destroy someone’s personal life and the ones around them…

The Plague Release Upbeat Synth-Punk Single “Can’t Stop Loving You”

Rochester-based “Futurepunk” band The Plague has debuted another new single from their upcoming full-length album Hope For The F.U.T.U.R.E. The track “Can’t Stop Loving You” is an upbeat tune about accepting someone for who they are and loving them unconditionally.

Frontman/producer David Adam Monroe says “Getting close to someone takes risk. There are many moments when it is normal to get afraid of rejection. ‘Will this person accept my most core feelings, thoughts, ideas or even secrets?’ ‘Can I trust them to deal with my anger, joy, failure and successes?’ I wrote ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’ about unconditional love. I wrote it to let the people close to me know that I will be there for them no matter what, and that I accept them the way they are and I love them. I’m lucky enough to have them love me back and I am forever grateful. Relationships are the best thing I have in my life.

Hope For The F.U.T.U.R.E will be released on October 13th via Recover Records, a label owned and operated by the band themselves. Monroe is no stranger to the business side of music, producing records alongside Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Earl Cohen (Lady Gaga, Pink, Jessica Simpson), and serving as an A&R rep for Victory and Torque records. Before that, Monroe led the band Third Estate who appeared on Warped Tour from 02-06 and toured with many established acts such as Story Of The Year, Yellowcard, and My Chemical Romance.

After 20 years in the music industry, Monroe sought to create a project that would spread a message of hope, and to rebel against these growing self-destructive ideals. “In the early days, most of my experience in the music industry seemed plastic and fake. Every time I got involved in something that seemed like it was going to take off, I was very concerned about the situation. Music is important to me, but so is being kind and loving. I didn’t feel I could make the world a better place with those opportunities, whereas working in a basement on this record has already done more for me spiritually than any work in the past.” says Monroe.

“Can’t Stop Loving You” is available now on all online retailers.

Hardcore Veterans Lionheart Return with New Single “Trial By Fire”

Over a year ago, California’s reigning kings of heavy hardcore, Lionheart, decided to call it quits. However, it wasn’t long before they realized that walking away was futile. The group has announced their return via the new single “Trial By Fire.” The song will be on their upcoming full-length Welcome To The West Coast II, a sequel of sorts to one of their most acclaimed albums that brought forth a new era in California hardcore.

When we started writing these songs we had no idea if they’d ever get released at all so there was no pressure, no timelines, and no expectations,” said the band. “We wrote whatever the fuck we wanted and we ended up with the best shit we’ve ever written. No gimmicks, no hype, no bullshit- ‘WTTWC II’ is pissed, heavy, and straight-up.

Lionheart stormed onto the West Coast hardcore scene in 2007, taking influence from bands like Blood For BloodHatebreed, and Ringworm; the band came out swinging with a full blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. Since then they’ve released five albums, including 2016’s Love Don’t Live Here, a well-received record that charted #2 on the iTunes Metal Charts.

Welcome To The West Coast II is available now for pre-order via Fast Break Records, who are also offering a limited vinyl run. “Trial By Fire” is live now on Spotify.

Mike Mangione & The Kin Release New Single “Riding Down”

The orchestral folk/rock group Mike Mangione & The Kin will be releasing their new record But I’ve Seen The Stars on October 20th, but you can hear their new single “Riding Down” below.

Mangione says “The song is based out of the classic question of who am I, what am I and where am I going? Roots music has a long tradition in dealing with either running toward or away from light/darkness. This song swims in the same waters. In this case the protagonist is fighting to break out and run towards the good and he knows that when he finally gets free the hounds will be howling.

Up until 2014, Mike led the group Mike Mangione & The Union, alongside his brother Thomas. After they dissolved, Mike began spending time in the Northwoods of Wisconsin to focus on writing his fifth studio record. In addition to having his brother in the fold, Mangione was in need of an accomplished rhythm section for the project. He reached out to friends, Josh Collazo (drums) and Seth Ford-Young (bass) of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Later, Mangione was introduced to Chauntee and Monique Ross of the band Sistastrings. Their musicality on violin and cello, as well as beautiful vocal harmonies won Mike over. Having two sets of siblings in the group sparked the new moniker Mike Mangione & The Kin and resulted in a gentle, shining new effort.

Mangione says “When we recorded ‘Riding Down’ we were in the big room, studio room B, at United Recording in LA. It was my brother, Tom and I, on the side, facing Josh and Seth. The song was just a guitar riff at that time. I expressed a loose vision to them, referencing Howlin’ Wolf and Wille Dixon. Right away they caught on, set the groove and we were off. We had it recorded within 30 minutes.

But I’ve Seen The Stars is available for pre-order now on iTunes and includes an instant download of “Riding Down”.

Upcoming tour dates: 
Sep 16th @ The Abbey Fest – Paoli, Pennsylvania 
Sep 28th @ Hotel Cafe – Los Angeles, CA 
Oct 4th @ Shitty Barn Concert Series – Spring Green, WI 
Nov 17th @ Anodyne Coffee – Milwaukee, WI

Chillwave/R&B artist Amber Ryann Releases New EP with an Introspective Video Series

California chillwave/R&B artist Amber Ryann‘s new record Voice Memos is truly a “behind the looking glass” attempt at self-discovery. In an effort to give the listener a better understanding of the record’s message, Ryann has released an accompanied video for each song, all filmed by Darius Turbak. It begins with the silhouetted title track and leads into the wavy, atmospheric pop single “For Real” featuring rapper Airospace.

Another special guest on the record includes “Like I’m Gonna Die” featuring Samantha Stone. The mood within the song’s lyricism is lonesome, sorry, and bitter, and is a constant question of purpose. When writing it, Ryann had been in a state of exhausted hopelessness. It’s a story on reflection, days in which she dealt with intense depression and endured a period of binging. “I had brought so much ill will upon myself to alleviate my own pain, at some point I felt destined to fail so I no longer wanted to try. ” says Ryann.

Although her music has a conscious hip-hop quality, Ryann first recognized her passion for music after seeing the My Chemical Romance video for “Helena” and watching Gerard Way’s emotionally intensive delivery. She consumed a healthy dose of rock and hardcore in the years to follow, but when her father, a rap/R&B producer, encouraged her to branch out, that’s when she really began to grow as a multi-instrumentalist. The new record is Ryann’s effort to find where she stands in a world with social and racial turmoil, and how her empathy plays a role.

Voice Memos is available now on Bandcamp.
