Southern Lord is pleased to announce the signing of Montreal trio, BIG|BRAVE.

The three-piece plays sincere, long-form out-rock that ventures in to different directions, at times mournful and unsettling, their music plays out in to moon-bleached grunge where serene vocals crumble over scraping guitars bled of melody.

The new BIG|BRAVE album is penciled in for a late summer release, recorded with Efrim Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra) at Hotel2Tango. This will add to a growing discography comprising their debut EP An Understanding Between People (2013) and the debut LP Feral Verdure, which they recorded at Paradise Studios with Jon Boles, and self-released in September 2014. There’s high expectation of great things to come…

Stay tuned for more news from Southern Lord and BIG|BRAVE.

OUTLAWS & MOONSHINE – New Southern Rock Band To Release Debut Single

Posted in Music, rock bands, rock music, southern rock with tags , , , on May 4, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Outlaws And Moonshine - promo band photo - 2015 - #0504OMMO,the Indiana based southern rock band is set to release their debut single and video titled ‘WHISKEY’ on May 12th. The single will be distributed digitally and is already available for pre-order across all major digital platforms. A sample of ‘WHISKEY’ can be heard here. The video will be released through Marvment Entertainment and Vevo.

Hailing as ‘new southern rock’, their signature sound comes from vocalist/guitarist and main songwriter Beau Van who crafts his songs after everyday life experiences. Beau’s unique approach is to use a balance of old school southern rock with a bit of today’s country rock and a whole lot of guitar. The end results are strong yet memorable songs that hook you and have you singing right along by the second chorus.

The band has recently aligned themselves with major industry players solidifying their brand by signing a sponsorship deal with Coldcock Whiskey in which Coldcock states; “We love you guys and would love to have you work with us”.

Outlaws & Moonshine also has endorsement deals with Amedia Cymbals, Pig Hog Cables, Queen City Drums, Spector Guitars, and Xcel Drumsticks.

The band heads back into the studio to finish up their debut E.P. later this month with plans to support the release with a summer tour. Outlaws & Moonshine are in talks with a national country artist to tour as direct support.

More information and updates can be found on the band’s website

Royal Thunder - Time Machine - Video Image Promo Pic - 2015

“…the contemporary hard-rock equivalent of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors…” – Stereogum

“a stunning hard-rock record that examines what happens after a breakup of any kind.” – NPR


April 23, 2015, Philadelphia – Royal Thunder debut the video for Time Machine, from their recently released album, Crooked Doors, via Rolling Stone:

The video was directed by J.P. Bradburn who also worked with the band on their video for “Blue.” NPR said of the song, “’Time Machine’ moves with the stubborn resolve of a tightrope walker on a windy day: The song heaves along with intertwining guitars and the soulful vocal of Parsonz, who seems more aware of her dynamic abilities than ever.”

The Atlanta-quartet is currently on a Southeastern tour with Wilco, playing this evening at the Bayou Music Center in Houston. Royal Thunder’s headlining tour kicks off May 28 in New Orleans and will include a brief run of shows with Halestorm and Rival Sons.

The band has been sharing behind-the-scenes footage filmed during the making of Crooked Doors, as well as a newly released clip where they discuss the individual tracks on the album. The first two in the track-by-track series of webisodes can be seen below:

Crooked Doors was released earlier this month, with Stereogum calling the album “the hard rock equivalent of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors.” Entertainment Weekly said Crooked Doors “leans on its substantial pop chops. Tracks like ‘Glow’ are more Heart than Led Zep, which is not a bad thing at all.” Metal Hammer UK recently nominated the band for “Best Underground Band” in their annual Golden Gods’ Awards.
