Long-running Washington-based heavy rock trio MOS GENERATOR will release a new full-length this May via Listenable Records. Titled Shadowlands, the eight-track studio offering was recorded in three sessions — June 2017, November 2017, and January 2018 — at the HeavyHead Recording Company in Port Orchard, Washington and comes swathed in the cover art of Adam Burke [Pilgrim, Satan’s Satyrs, Hooded Menace, Artificial Brain et al].

“Right from the opening song, Shadowlands is a record that, to me, feels more honest than our previous releases,” relays founding guitarist/vocalist/principal songwriter Tony Reed. “On this record, I introduce many other styles that I enjoy but they are intertwined so subtly that it doesn’t interrupt the classic MOS GENERATOR sound. That is a balance I’ve been looking for over the last few albums and I think the presence of [drummer] Jon Garrett and [bassist] Sean Booth have a lot to do with achieving that balance. It’s a heavy rock record that breaths and if I had to describe it further I would say it mixes ’70s style heavy rock, progressive rock, and also has some weird ’80s and ’90s underground rock nuances.”

Shadowlands will see release via Listenable Records in Europe on May 11th followed by a US street date of May 18th with preorder info to be announced in the coming weeks.

Shadowlands – Track Listing:
1. Shadowlands
2. The Destroyer
3. Drowning In Your Loving Cup

MOS GENERATOR formed during the Winter of 2000 in Port Orchard, Washington from the ashes of a decade-long on-again-off-again collaboration between its three members, all of which are long time veterans of the road and studio. The need to strip down to the basics of hard rock was apparent from the start and continues to be the foundation for the band’s recent material.

MOS GENERATOR has released seven studio albums, a retrospective album, a live album, and a plethora of split releases. 2015 brought in a new rhythm section and touring possibilities far beyond the limitations of the original lineup. This new lineup has changed the band into a relentless touring machine, delivering critically acclaimed performances both states and abroad. “They are so good,” gushed Maximum Volume Music, “you end up wanting to round-up a couple of mates, buy a Transit, form a three-piece rock ‘n’ roll band and go on tour.”

MOS GENERATOR:
Tony Reed – guitar, vocals, keyboards
Sean Booth – bass
Jon Garrett – drums

“It’s as pure an example of heavy rock as I’ve heard.” JJ Koczan – The Obelisk

NEWMACHINE - promo band card - 2018 - #33MO3343233

New Album ‘Full Circle’

HighVolMusic recording artist NEWMACHINE is wrapping up the recording of their sophomore effort due out late Spring 2018. Final tracks are being recorded and then mixing/mastering begins. The new album titled ‘Full Circle’, is being recorded/engineered by Bo Davis with mixing by Chris Presnell, and mastering still to be determined. “We are looking at a few different mastering engineers, Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound, Anthony Focx who also happens to be signed to the same label as we are, and our label is reaching out to Maor Applebaum in L.A.. Maor did the new Snake Eyes Seven record and it is fantastic!” says vocalist Ashton Blake.

‘Full Circle’ will contain 10 tracks of high energy rock. Below is a demo clip from Sonic Recording Studio of the band working on the new track ‘Master of My Fate’.

NEWMACHINE has also finalized their lineup with Ashton Blake (vocals), A.D. Zimmer (bass), Ryche Green (drums), Bo Davis (keys, B3), Steve Cummings (guitar), Lorenzo DelVecchio (guitar).

The band will be performing at 80’s in the Park on February 16th-18th and then again on February 24th with Jefferson Starship at Center For The Arts Of Bonita Springs. A special guest will be on stage with NEWMACHINE for the show on the 24th, details to follow.

BULLETBOYS “From Out Of The Skies” – New Studio Album Releases On March 23rd, via Frontiers Music SRL

From Frontiers Music Srl:

BULLETBOYS‘ new album, “From Out Of The Skies” will be released on CD/LP/MP3 on March 23, 2018 via Frontiers Music Srl.

The first video and single, “D-Evil” features guest vocals from Jesse Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal. Of the song, vocalist, guitarist, and founding member Marq Torien says, “Jesse and I had an instant bond when we met and he did an outstanding job collaborating on the song with his vocals a welcome contribution.”

“From Out Of The Skies” was recorded at the Foo Fighters’ Studio 606. “Writing and recording ‘From Out Of The Skies’ was a humbling experience and recording this unpredictable album at the Foo Fighters’ Studio 606 was unbelievable and magical. Dave Grohl’s music got me through a very difficult time, so from day one I knew that we were in the right home to record. I was privileged enough to use one of Dave’s acoustic guitars to record with, along with a hand-picked drum set by Taylor Hawkins. I appreciate the opportunity to record there,” says Torien.

The BULLETBOYS began as a collection of talented musicians from high-profile bands such as King Kobra and Ratt. Using their credentials, they were able to quickly capture the attention of music fans around the world while front man Marq Torien emerged as one of the most underrated vocalists of the era.

The BULLETBOYS formed in 1988 at the very peak of the Los Angeles Glam Metal movement. With record companies constantly searching for new talent, they possessed a pedigree that most bands would kill for. Unlike the other glam rockers of the day, the BULLETBOYS were more Hard Rock and blues fusion than pure Hair Metal. Thanks to comparisons to the likes of Aerosmith and especially Van Halen, talent scouts came running and the band quickly received their first major label contract. Over the years, they have dominated the airwaves, and remain relevant to this day in heavy rotation on VH1’s “Metal Mania” and Internet and Satellite (SiriusXM’s Hair Nation, KNAC.COM, etc.) radio throughout the world!

BULLETBOYS:

Marq Torien – Vocals & Lead Guitar

Nick Rozz – Guitar

Chad MacDonald – Bass

Anthony “Tiny” Biuso – Drums

Faithsedge - promo band collage - 2016 - #MOFEILMF933233

Faithsedge is returning with ‘Restoration’, their third and most melodic release to date. Fronted by mastermind singer / songwriter Giancarlo Floridia, the band returns with a stellar line-up featuring Stryper bass player Tim Gaines, Ace Frehley / Mr .Big drummer Matt Starr and former Dokken guitarist Alex De Rosso. Both Keys and production have been handled by Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline/ Revolution Saints).

The approach is very melodic with an old school feel: 80’s style hooks, big drums, slamming bass, epic keys and big production. At the same time the album keeps a current up to date feel with lyric content of today’s world mixed with a competitive Metal feel. Giancarlo’s songwriting approach mixed with each members experience and skills takes the album to new heights .

With different supergroups that come and go, Faithsedge is more than just that, the band members worked together as a tight team and the result and chemistry show in the end result. The album will be released on Scarlet Records in Europe and North America on June 24th and on Spiritual Beast in Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan on June 15th.
