Dayton, OH September 25th, 2013Dangerkids, the American rock band who recently released their debut album, Collapse, is pleased to announce their upcoming US "Tracing Back Roots Tour" with We Came As Romans.  The tour kicks off October 2nd, 2013 in Grand Rapids and will wrap November 3rd in Detroit. Full list of dates are listed below. For more information, please visit:  http://www.facebook.com/wearedangerkids.

Dangerkids, which is comprised of Tyler Smyth, Andy Bane, Jake Bryant, Jake Bonham, and Katie Cole, released their new album, Collapse, via Rise Records on September 17th, 2013

Having only formed in April 2012, the Ohio based rockers were named one of Under The Gun's Top 5 Artists To Watch in 2013 - "Their slick, high-gloss approach to marketing and music production sets a new standard for independent artists."   Dangerkids have toured under Sleeping With SirensAttack Attack and played the 2013 Skate and Surf festival in Jackson, NJ.

The album, which was self-produced and engineered by frontman Tyler Smyth, was mixed by Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada, Of Mice & Men, Miss May I). When asked about creating Collapse, Smyth stated, "Producing and recording the album ourselves allowed us the rare opportunity to draw our own lines, both lyrically and sonically. We were able to create a level of sincerity in our music that we might not have been able to achieve otherwise. Everyone in this band gave a piece of themselves to make this record happen, so we felt we owed it to each other to give nothing less than our best."

The record also recalls some of Smyth's more difficult times. "Collapse is a somewhat unstable album because it comes from such an unstable time in my life. It's heartfelt and genuine in a way I can't explain - It's like it hurts and heals at the same time."

Dangerkids released Collapse via Rise Records on September 17thThe album is now available on iTunes, here:smarturl.it/dangerkids-collapse.  You can also check out a full stream of Collapse on Guitar World here: bit.ly/1eHuTmN.

THE MUSEBOX PRESENTS FREE MUSIC MONDAYS AT SILVERLAKE LOUNGE



The MuseBox’s Free Music Mondays at Silverlake Lounge have been a blast thus far. Please join us for the last one of the month on September 30th, featuring Puro Instinct, Night Club, and Golden Gloves.

Puro Instinct creates dreamy, ethereal melodies not dissimilar to heavies of the past few decades (Cocteau Twins, Lush), but with the doomed worldview of today's California, fallin' into the sea, creeping ever so slightly in the background. They received Pitchfork's vaunted Rising tag, and they've collaborated with local heroes like Ariel Pink, amongst others.

Night Club is an electronic pop duo from Los Angeles, CA that features Emily Kavanaugh (vocalist) and Mark Brooks (producer).  Although Brooks comes with a lengthy pedigree in performing/DJ-ing (Warlock Pinchers, Foreskin 500, Le Pimp and MegaJive), this marks Kavanaugh's first entrance into performing, following in the steps of her father, Kevin Kavanaugh (keyboardist of the legendary New Jersey band Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes).

Golden Gloves is an LA-based musical project featuring Chris Norton and whoever else happens to be in the room at any given time. His live show features 808s and loud guitars.
Don’t miss it: come out to Silverlake Lounge on September 23, starting at 8pm. Oh, and did we mention it’s free? Because it’s totally, 100% FREE.
Throughout the night, we’ll be spreading the word about No Kill LA – every day pets need to find a permanent home, and every day No Kill LA works to make that happen.
Presented by the MuseBox: Powering the Music Revolution

letlive. PREMIERES NEW VIDEO FOR “YOUNGER” AT NOISEY.COM



September 25, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA – Southern California’s rising “Soul Punk” band letlive. has premiered a shocking new video for their current single “Younger” today at Noisey.com.   The song is featured on the band’s recently released album, The Blackest Beautiful, which is available for purchase now at iTunesAmazonBestBuyletlivestore.com and local indie retailers.
Watch letlive.’s new video for “Younger” exclusively at Noisey.com: http://bit.ly/15TIKk6
Directed by Ernie Gilbert, produced by Russ Hubley and shot in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles, letive.’s video for “Younger” is a satirical take on the misguided power of influential people and the erroneous focus on everything but the worth of individuals.  The treatment for the video was written by letlive. and unfolds as singer Jason Aalon Butler’s character comes into conflict with a cult-like group and finds himself driven mad with power.
letlive.’s new video comes on the heels of the band’s recent announcement that they will be joining labelmates Every Time I Die for a fall tour that kicks off in Cleveland on November 21st and wraps in Buffalo on December 21st.  Fans can purchase tickets now at http://www.showstubs.com/collections/etid-tour-2013.

THE TRAGIC THRILLS RELEASE LYRIC VIDEO AND PLAY LA


Check out this lyric video for "Tears" from The Tragic Thrills, who are playing Hotel Cafe tomorrow night and Bootleg Theater next month on the 21st.

“My aim is to be earnest and have integrity,” says Zach Porter, primary songwriter of the transcendent pop-rock quartet The Tragic Thrills.  “When I write songs for this band, I question every word because I want to make sure everything is honest.”

The quartet is comprised of seasoned musicians with national and international touring experience, and successful track records with both major and independent labels. In addition to Zach Porter, the band includes Michael Martinez, Brent Schneiders, and Cameron Quiseng. With The Tragic Thrills, the band members break away from their legacies to rally behind the poetic and irreverently romantic songs Porter has crafted. Emboldened by the fresh start, the guys have taken the reins to steer their destiny. They self-funded their self-titled debut, and, enamored with the subtle genius production on Mat Kearney’s Young Love, handpicked producer Jason Lehning.

It’s a bold way to launch a new band, but that move keeps within the vibrant emotionality packed in the group’s moniker. “The name The Tragic Thrills embodies a sense of what I owe.  Not what I owe to anyone, just what it'll take for me to find whatever the hell it is I'm looking for in life,” Porter reveals.

For Porter, love pulled him off the music business treadmill and brought him back to soulful creative authenticity. “Meeting my girlfriend changed everything,” he confides.  “In the past, being in a successful band was the most important thing in the world to me—I was willing to do whatever it took to make it.  But my heart moved on. Now I’m able to write in a way that my ambitions had stopped me from before. “

The Tragic Thrills debut is sublimely modern with skyward, atmospheric anthemics tastefully balanced by poignant and quaint touches likes stately cello, crystalline piano, and shimmering guitars. Against this expansive backdrop, Porter sings his powerfully confessional lyrics with rawness and urgency. On “Creeps And Strangers” Porter’s voice has a winsome weariness as he sings/begs “please don’t go” against the song’s luminescent accompaniment. It's a story about not succumbing to the mundane 9-to-5 life (and subsequently taking a shot to realize your dreams), complete with reference to protagonist George Bailey from "It's A Wonderful Life."

Throughout the album Porter’s lyric writing is a revelation; it’s blunt and pent-up but bursting with emotion about relationships: romantic, friendship, and business. On “Tears” he sings: I lost it all/I punched the wall again/But it was stronger than my hands/And they were swollen, they were red/And I'm a fool/I'm not a lion, I'm a man I can't outrun the hurt they said/But I can love and love again/And you too, you too. “I have days quite often where I find myself relating to ‘Tears,’ in many different ways,” he says candidly. “I have something that means everything to me.  And with that connection and devotion comes the greatest moments in my life but also some of the hardest.”

The hauntingly beautiful “Fever” features some of his most imaginative and stinging lyrical ideas. “There are 3 different stories in ‘Fever.’ The first story I made up, although it's safe to say it happens all the time.  The other 2 stories are personal stories from my life,” he explains. “Getting these stories out in these songs is a huge release for me.  When I sing that song I mean every word.”

The Tragic Thrills sought out producer Jason Lehning for his fingerprint aesthetic of sleek poise and unvarnished expressiveness. “Jason was everything I needed.  He was the perfect balance of challenging me and letting me do my thing to capture an emotion,” explains Porter.

“The whole time I was making the record there was a sense of purpose,” Porter says pensively, thinking back.  “It felt like it was exactly what I should be doing.  That sense of purpose gets me through everything,” he says, pausing. “I can’t wait to play this music live. The more we get out there and prove ourselves the more fulfilling this will be. “

Glamour Kills Tour Opening Act Stages & Stereos to Bring Alex Reed (Go Radio) on tour



EXCLUSIVE EP STREAM on Purevolume.com

New EP Small Town Favorites out 9/24 (AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW NOW)
“Small Town Favorites” (single) can be streamed here: bit.ly/19H4pzE

September 23, 2013 - Tallahassee, FL -  The Glamour Kills tour opening act, Stages & Stereos have exclusively partnered with Purevolume to unveil their “Small Town Favorites” EP. Fans can stream the EP in its entirety here. In additional news, Stages & Stereos have announced they will be bringing Alex Reed of Go Radio on the Glamour Kills tour this Fall (tour dates are listed below).

Track listing:
1. Cool To Be Vain
2. Even Tides
3. Coup De Grace
4. 1990
5. Small Town Favorites

Make sure to catch the Alternative/Indie outfit on the 38-date full US tour with Mayday Parade, Man Overboard, and Cartel this fall.

Formed in 2007, Stages & Stereos released several dynamic EP’s but it wasn’t until the band decided to go on hiatus while bassist Ian Edge enlisted in the U.S. Army as a combat medic that things began to change. In early 2011, Ian was critically wounded by an I.E.D (improvised explosive device) losing his right leg at knee level. Once Ian returned home, the talk of Stages & Stereos quickly became a topic of conversation. It took the band a year to adjust the line up and hit the studio in 2012, record and release Anchorless, and tour with Go Radio and Paradise Fears. Fast forward several months and Stages & Stereos are back at it with a new single, new album, and all around new attitude as a band.

“Small Town Favorites” is an anthemic tune off the band’s forthcoming EP also titled Small Town Favorites produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount due out September 24, 2013. The track is about being from a small town, living out your dreams, and making something for yourself. Lead Vocalist, Daniel Lancaster captures this in the song by shouting,  “To hell with it, I’m aware of everything I’ve done, I’m not done.” “Small Town Favorites” is now available on itunes.

Don’t forget to check out the band on a slew of shows coming up for the remainder of the year. All tour dates listed below:
