THE CULT Lead Multi-Act Greek Theatre Line-up with Prayers, Zola Jesus and Vowws on June 15th


THE CULT
 
THE GREEK THEATRE IN LOS ANGELES
BECOMES 'A SONIC TEMPLE'
ON JUNE 15

PRAYERS, ZOLA JESUS AND VOWWS
TO JOIN THE CULT FOR THIS VERY SPECIAL NIGHT

  
 
The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles will become "A Sonic Temple" on June 15 with a diverse multi-act bill that has roots in THE CULT lead singer Ian Astbury's pioneering pre-Lollapalooza festival "A Gathering of the Tribes" (1990). Prayers, Zola Jesus and Vowws will join headliners THE CULT for this very special night that will also mark the 30th anniversary of the band's multi-platinum, game-changing album Sonic TemplePurchase tickets here.
As with other shows on their May and June 2019 tour that's encompassing theU.S., U.K. and Canada, the British group that's led by Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy will perform a show drawing from their 10 studio albums, with the centerpiece being a super set that's focused on the core songs fromSonic Temple; some of these songs have not been performed since the album (their fourth) was originally released in 1989. Sonic Temple--a pivotal album that brought together the alternative and hard rock audiences--will be reissued in a 30th anniversary edition by Beggars Banquet Records (exact release date TBA). Sonic Temple features the singles "Fire Woman," "Edie (Ciao Baby)," "Sweet Soul Sister" and "Sun King."
 
This gathering and celebration for fans of THE CULT--'A SONIC TEMPLE'--is an opportunity to come together for one truly memorable night. Ian Astburyand Billy Duffy appeared May 15 on Jonesy's Jukebox (KLOS-FM) to talk about the Greek Theatre show. Listen to the podcast here.
 
"We've never thrown a party like this before," says Astbury. "We want to celebrate the band's DNA and especially the album Sonic Temple as this year Beggars Banquet are planning a substantial reissue project." He adds: "Prayers and Vowws have both toured with us and the timing felt right for bringing this group of artists together. In many ways I feel these artists are kindred spirits, along with Zola Jesus--outsiders who are unique and deeply romantic in a time of material posturing and disconnect. They are devoted to their craft; I identify with their honesty in performance and fearlessness and originality in their creativity. They are truly inspired and in harmony with now."
 
Los Angeles is a key city for THE CULT. It's where Astbury and Duffy live and where they've played historic shows. "The Greek is an amazing theatre in our own adopted backyard where I've seen amazing and diverse shows--Sinatra, the Pistols and Neil Young, for example," says Duffy. "I'm honored that The Cult gets to walk the same stage as such legends in a beautiful historic outdoor setting." He adds: "We feel outdoor venues seem to warrant a longer show as folks like to attend early and stay late so to that end we have expanded the bill to make it a truly special night of diverse music."
 
Astbury says: "L.A. has always been a muse since I was very young with the stories and myths spun out through film, literature, poetry, art and music that I was attracted to. It was and still is a city of refuge for British musicians; the lifestyle suited our needs and continues to do so. Hearing a wild coyote or seeing the snow-capped mountain evokes a deep sense of awe and transcendence primal and modern--a cultural multi-faceted diamond that inspires and confounds; it's always changing, never staying still."

All revved up and red hot, The STRAY CATS are back.

Brian Setzer (guitar, vocals), Lee Rocker (bass, vocals) and Slim Jim Phantom (drums, vocals)--original founding members of the iconic and acclaimed American rock and roll trio--are celebrating their 40thanniversary in 2019 with a new album and tour (*see tour dates below).Ahead of this they have revealed the brand new video for 'Rock It Off'.

Talking about the song Brian Setzer says; 
“This one is really different for us, Mike Campbell of the Heartbreakers came up with this crazy riff. It’s almost like a backwards ‘Day Tripper.'”

The STRAY CATS have titled the album 40. Marking their first new album in 26 years, it will be releasedMay 24 via Surfdog Records and distributed by Mascot Label Group (CD, LP, Digital) in Europe and the UK (CD, vinyl, digital). The song titles alone--including “Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me),” “Rock It Off,” “Mean Pickin’ Mama,” and “Devil Train”—instantly let listeners know they’re in for a non-stop rocking time.

Watch the band and album producer Peter Collins in the studio discussing the making of the album here.

 A Limited Box with CD including 2 bonus tracks and the Stray Cats-themed coasters (2x), postcard and 2 stickers will arrive on May 24. As well as limited LP on 180 grams silver vinyl:http://smarturl.it/StrayCats

The STRAY CATS recorded 40 at Blackbird Studios in Nashville in late 2018 following their first North American shows in 10 years, with four concerts including sold-out headlining shows in Las Vegas and thePacific Amphitheatre in Costa MesaCA before wildly enthusiastic audiences. Still buzzing from the thrill of playing together again and crowd response, they went into the studio with producer Peter Collins(Rush, Bon Jovi, The Brian Setzer Orchestra) and engineer Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Arctic Monkeys). There are a dozen original songs that comprise the album.

Here’s what the guys have to say:

Brian Setzer: "You have to understand how unique The Stray Cats are. It’s me playing an old hollow body guitar, Slim Jim playing two or three drums, and Lee Rocker slapping a stand-up acoustic bass.  I get to write new songs and then play them with my buddies.  Somehow we created a new and exciting sound with this simple idea.  And you know what? A lot of people agree!"

Lee Rocker: “This new album really feels like the first record we did, it’s really natural and comfortable. For the recording, we went live--like doing a gig, we recorded in a real, organic way.  We were all in one room standing next to each other recording live, with the amps turned up to 10, it captured the undefinable things that happen when a band is great, it captured the magic that takes place and an undefined spark.”
 

Slim Jim Phantom: “We’re very, very focused when we get into the studio, it didn’t feel like a long time had passed since we had done this, it felt very natural and familiar.  We were all in a row with everyone watching each other, so it felt like a gig in the set-up.  We really embraced that a little bit for the album, it’s like an old way of making records.  The modern is meeting the vintage, which has always been our inspiration.”

Mannequin Pussy Share "Who You Are" Lyric Video



MANNEQUIN PUSSY SHARE NEW SONG “WHO YOU ARE”
WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO NOW
FULL-LENGTH ALBUM ‘PATIENCE’ OUT JUNE 21




Indie punk band Mannequin Pussy have shared a new song “Who You Are” from their forthcoming album Patience, due June 21 on Epitaph. Marisa Dabice trades her signature scream for a softer vocal performance and a call for self-empowerment on “Who You Are.”

​Watch the lyric video for “Who You Are” now:
https://youtu.be/HRJmwWJ53Tc

The upcoming third full-length from Mannequin Pussy, Patience is an album fascinated with the physical experience of the body, its songs tracking the movements of mouths and hands and racing hearts, skin and spit and teeth and blood. Patience came to life at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. In creating the album, Mannequin Pussy worked with producer/engineer Will Yip (Quicksand, The Menzingers), shaping an explosive sound that never overshadows the subtlety of their songwriting.

Founded in 2013, Mannequin Pussy is Marisa Dabice (vocals/guitar), Thanasi Paul (guitar), Bear Regisford (bass), and Kaleen Reading (drums). Mannequin Pussy has released two full-length albums, 2014’s GP and 2016’s Romantic on Tiny Engines.

New Tour Dates from Papa M!

BROKE MOON KEEP ON RISING
2019's A Broke Moon Rises was a necessarily cathartic experience in all phases; Papa M blew it out, all the different styles he's played in over the years, from folk-blues to metal, electronic, pop, Bollywood...all of it. Afterwards, with no tour dates around the album release (partially due to lousy clubs and their lack of wheelchair-accessible stage doors!), the day to see Pajolive seems like it would never come. Then like a flash of light, Papa M hopped on some select dates with Sunn O)))--dreams do come true!
 
But why are we telling you this now, after its all already happened? Because much like Terminator 2, the sequel is better than the original! Beginning in August, Papa M kicks up the dust and heads down that country road once again, this time sharing the stage with Mogwai on their dates. For eight nights, Pajo will be building it all up and tearing back down again with licks that could kill and looks to match! Don't miss on the opportunity to see Papa M this Summer, who knows when the next chance will be?
