NEW YORK, NY (SEPTEMBER – 2016) – Platinum-selling Maryland Hard Rock icons, KIX will release CAN’T STOP THE SHOW: THE RETURN OF KIX, a two-disc DVD/CD set, October 21, 2016 on Loud & Proud Records.  The 71-minute film is an in-depth look into KIX’s decision to record their first new album, 2014’s Rock Your Face Off, in almost 20 years.

The DVD – WATCH THE TRAILER HERE or below – also features the making of the album from bassist Mark Schenker’s studio, interviews with the band as well as notable rock artists such as Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, Jeff LaBar of Cinderella, Share Ross of Vixen, Shannon Larkin of Godsmack, and more, key music industry veterans such as radio personality Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson of That Metal Show on VH1 Classic as well as Luc Carl and Keith Roth of Sirius/XM.  It also includes a rare appearance by producer Taylor Rhodes (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, KIX’s Hot Wire).

The CD, CAN’T STOP THE SHOW (LIVE) offers never-before-released live KIX tracks recorded over the last three years.  A bonus KIX logo sticker is inside the first manufacturing run, a special treat for KIX fans around the world, and each band member offers his own special contribution to the package’s booklet including vocalist Steve Whiteman’s rigorous exercise routine, cartoons by guitarist Brian “Damage” Forsythe, an essay by bassist Mark Schenker, a gear rundown by guitarist Ronnie “10/10” Younkins and a favorite recipe from drummer Jimmy Chalfant, aka “Chef Chocolate.”


“KIX is proud of the band’s legacy, but equally proud of our new chapter,” says Schenker. “We had an opportunity to work with some great film makers, so we just let the cameras roll everywhere, and had so much fun putting the project together. There was a true outpouring of love and admiration from our fans and our peers after the release of Rock Your Face Off and luckily, we had documented the recording sessions on film. Now we are excited to share the process of making the new album with our loyal fans.  KIX thanks everyone involved and hopes everyone loves it as much as we loved making it!”

In 2014, KIX released their seventh full-length album, Rock Your Face Off (Loud & Proud Records) their first studio effort since 1995’s Show Business. The album debuted at #1 on Amazon’s “Hard Rock and Metal “chart, in the Top 50 on Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart, #5 on the “Independent Albums “chart, #11 on the “Top Internet “chart, #17 on the “Top Rock Albums” chart, #27 on the “Indy/Small Chain Core Stores” chart and #33 on the “Physical” chart.  It also garnered rave reviews from publications such as Stereogum who said, “KIX have made an album with all the spirit and joy and craftsmanship that they always brought, an album with a hooks-per-minute ratio enough to grab you even if you never heard of them before reading this review.  The band plays with a sense of rhythmic push-pull that reminds you that people used to dance to this stuff, and that they still could, if they were so inclined…Its mere existence is an inspirational thing, and it’s a reminder that sometimes exploring new musical space isn’t the most important thing. Sometimes, songs are the most important thing.”

KIX will be performing select shows for the rest of the year, including a home town release event show in Baltimore, MD at Rams Head Live on September 24.  All tour dates can be found on the band’s website HERE. Pre-order CAN’T STOP THE SHOW: THE RETURN OF KIX through Amazon HERE.

BROODING HERD – “Rewired” EP – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on September 23, 2016 by Metal Odyssey


William Herd (guitars, vocals, keyboards) and Brad Lewellyn on drums are the one-two wallop that comprises Portland Oregon’s BROODING HERD. The heaviness of this band’s new EP, Rewired, should be enjoyed by Metal and Hard Rock fans world-wide! From large hints of Black Sabbath like atmosphere (thanks to the guitar solos, riffs and bass) united with a Clutch feel of pounding rhythm, BROODING HERD are as tight and crisp as the most polished of any major label Heavy Rock bands out there today. I am amazed this is an underground band that recorded this underground album. Seriously. That’s my opinion and I’m not bullshitting for fun here.

The five songs on this EP are: Rewired, Cryptic Verses, Leech, Greed Machine and Crawl. Each song plays out at 6 minutes plus, save for the title track which is 5 plus minutes. BROODING HERD are light years from Extreme Metal and still their Heavy Rock/Metal has plenty of power-packed muscle to leave me saying: Holy Metal Shit! William’s clean vocals are of the bad-ass mold and I honestly can say their unique as all hell. William plays guitar so damn good, there’s nothing else I nor my ears can say. Brad on drums kills it. Greed Machine and Crawl are my 2 favorite songs on this EP; they both flow with a thunderous charge, man.

With some impressive moments of progressiveness and no boring moments to be had, Rewired is as solid a Heavy Rock album I’ve listened to this year. Now go get yourself some at their bandcamp site and buy some real music. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

BREAKING NEWS: In celebration of the band’s 25th Anniversary, Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of TYKETTO‘s brand new album “Reach” on October 14th.

After five years of relentless touring that included playing on some of the most prestigious stages on the planet, Tyketto (The Official) took their revitalized energy in to the studio in the spring of 2016. The sessions took place at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales (Queen, RUSH, Oasis). Musically the band is truly at the top of their game, with their muscular brand of Melodic Rock delivered with the finest arrangements and awesome performances.

Lead vocalist Danny Vaughn comments, “Although we only had planned on recording ten songs for REACH, we were so pleased with everything, we decided to keep all twelve songs on the record. We unanimously decided on REACH as the title of the album, as it defines who this band is in 2016. We have a new energy, some incredible new members, and a fresh outlook toward the future. All of us have pushed each other beyond our limits to make what we feel is a pinnacle record in our catalog.”

Drummer and founding member Michael Clayton Arbeeny adds, “Many bands who have been out as long as we have felt they need to fit into a preconceived notion of what their fans expect to hear. Following in the footsteps of icons such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Prince, we have decided to expand our musical boundaries and introduce our friends around the world to Tyketto 2016. Rest assured that all the songs on REACH still carry the trademark melodies and choruses our fans have grown to love over the decades. The band is feeling stronger and performing better than ever and we can’t wait to share this music with the world.”

In addition to Vaughn and Arbeeny, the unstoppable 2016 lineup includes Chris Green (guitars and vocals), Ged Rylands (keyboards and vocals) and Chris Childs (bass).

A video for the title track, “Reach,” will be released soon. An 11 country tour to support the album commences in October. Dates are below.

WISHING WELL And GRAHAM BONNET Want To Cooperate On A Song Again

Wishing Well - Band Logo - #MO9090ILMFS

Finnish Hard Rockers Wishing Well opened up for Graham Bonnet Band at On The Rocks Club in Helsinki on April 21st. It provided a good chance for Wishing Well band leader Anssi Korkiakoski to meet Graham Bonnet and discuss continuation for “Hippie Heart Gypsy Soul”, the song which they recorded last year and released earlier this year as a single and on Wishing Well’s critically acclaimed “Chasing Rainbows” album.

“It was good to meet Graham and have a chat. He’s not only a very pleasant and easy-going gentleman but also in top shape when it comes to singing. His live performance was awesome and I really enjoyed seeing him live after a long time. We were all just astonished by what he can still deliver. The band was great too”, says Anssi. “We discussed the possibility of working together in the future and agreed it would be great to record a new track at some point down the road. I really hope we can do that when the time is ripe again since now we’re still busy with promoting our album and Graham is busier than ever with his new albums and autobiography to be released later this year. Time will tell if it’s going to happen but we both honestly wish we’ll get a chance to make it happen.”

For the time being Wishing Well will continue with lead vocalist Pekka Montin, who replaced Peter James Good earlier this spring. The band is now booking more live shows and working hard to promote their “Chasing Rainbows” album.

The legendary LITA FORD stumbled upon her lost recordings from a collection of 24-track analog tapes and the end result (after some tape baking) is an eleven song studio album titled: Time Capsule. This new album will be released on April 15th, 2016.

LITA FORD had asked several Hard Rock superstars to record with her that were within her studio reach, at the time, so many years ago. During these self-produced recording sessions, LITA FORD is featured with: Billy Sheehan (bass), Dave Navarro (mandolin), Jeff Scott Soto (sings duet with Lita), Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (backing vocals), Gene Simmons (bass), Chris Holmes (intro) and Rodger Carter on drums. All of these songs were recorded in the moment of creative spontaneity. Metal be thy name! – Stone
