NINE INCH NAILS RETURN WITH NEW EP, ADD VIOLENCE, OUT TODAY

Nine Inch Nails RETURN WITH New EP,
ADD VIOLENCE, OUT TODAY
Band Will Headline FYF Fest In Los Angeles This Sunday, July 23,
And Panorama Festival In NYC On July 30
"Reznor and Ross seem ready to go full-on, carnal Nine Inch Nails again" -SPIN

Nine Inch Nails' new EP, ADD VIOLENCE, is now available digitally - download or stream HERE. Hi-res digital with a limited edition physical component is available exclusively at NIN.com. The five-song collection will be released on CD in September. It is the second in a trilogy of EPs, following 2016's Not The Actual Events.
Hailed by Billboard as "one of rock's greatest live bands," Nine Inch Nails returns to the road with a series of festival dates. The Los Angeles Times named the band as one of the "must-see acts" at FYF Fest in Los Angeles, where Nine Inch Nails will headline the closing day - Sunday, July 23. The band will also top the bill at Panorama in New York City, Riot Fest in Chicago and Aftershock Fest in Sacramento. See below for itinerary.

Nine Inch Nails' sold-out, July 19 show at Bakersfield's Rabobank Arena marked the band's first live performance since 2014. The Fresno Bee said, "Nine Inch Nails visually stunned - at times, quite literally stunned - with a 75-minute set that was equally stark and minimal...and explosively overwhelming."

"Disconcerting synths, screeching guitars, and Trent Reznor's distinctive snarl: Must be new Nine Inch Nails," said Entertainment Weekly, which praised the new single "LESS THAN" as "another stellar NIN jam that doubles as anxiety-inducing freak-out and alt-rock radio catnip." The New York Times noted, "Its nervous electro pulse and intensifying salvos of guitar noise hark back all the way to the Nine Inch Nails of 'Head Like a Hole' from its 1989 debut album." NPR Music lauded its "cinematic pop sheen" while Noisey observed,"It's upbeat but dark and heavy in that signature NIN way, and Trent Reznor's vocals are as much of an aural razorblade as they've always been." Check out "LESS THAN" HERE
 
            Rolling Stone heralded "THIS ISN'T THE PLACE," another track from ADD VIOLENCEas "brooding and unsettling." Consequence of Sound found it "intriguing" andBrooklyn Vegan observed, "It's more proof that there's no telling what moves Trent Reznor & co will pull in 2017."

OMD Play 'Good Day New York', Mon. July 24th, First US TV in 25 Years + WYNC Soundcheck July 25th.

OMD PLAY 'GOOD DAY NEW YORK' MONDAY JULY 24th,
FIRST US TV IN 25 YEARS + WYNC SOUNDCHECK JULY 25th. TUNE IN!

 'THE PUNISHMENT OF LUXURY' OUT 9/1/2017 ON WHITE NOISE
WATCH & SHARE: OMD - "THE PUNISHMENT OF LUXURY"
WATCH & SHARE: OMD - "ISOTYPE"
This Monday, July 25th, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark will play 'Good Day New York'. It will be the first time they've played U.S. Television in 25 Years. The performance will be live at 9:40 AM on Fox 5! The following day the band will be on WNYC soundcheck at 2 PM. Be sure to tune in for both performances!


With their 13th studio album ‘The Punishment Of Luxury’ out September 1st via White Noise Records, synth-pop pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark release new single and the title track impacting September 1st.
'The Punishment of Luxury’ is written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD – Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys- pairing crushing electro rhythms with characteristically serene melodies sounding unapologetically electronic.

The track and album are named after an 1891 painting by the Italian divisionist Giovanni Segantini that caught Andy’s eye. Andy explains, “Most people in the western world are materially better off than their predecessors ever were and yet we are unhappier. Now we have many possessions that we don’t need because we’ve been persuaded to buy. This is the punishment of luxury.”

Having played a triumphant sold out show at the Royal Albert Hall in May last year, OMD head back out on the road again this autumn for a string of must-see shows, including a show at The Roundhouse November 13th.  
 


Synth-pop pioneers OMD return with their dazzling 13th studio album ‘The Punishment of Luxury’ which sees them combine the wistful nostalgia and idealized romance of their previous work while stepping out of their comfort zone. The LP is out September 1st on White Noise Records.

The follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘English Electric’ (released in 2013) ‘The Punishment Of Luxury’ is a daring collection of stylish synth pop and masterful songwriting which will certainly rank alongside their very best.

Written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD – Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys – the album is the sound of a band in their prime. ‘On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises and repetitive patterns’, explains Andy. ‘The trouble is, we just cant help but write a catchy melody!’

The album takes its name from an 1891 painting by the Italian Giovani Segantini and contains everything from the Kraftwerkian ‘Isotype’ and ‘Robot Man’ to the blue eyed soul ballads of ‘One More Time’ and ‘The View From Here’ as well as more traditional OMD songs like ‘Kiss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Bang’ and the synth heavy title track.

Described by The Quietus as “not just one of the best synth bands ever – they are one of the best bands ever”, OMD’s influence has become ubiquitous. The xx, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy have cited OMD as an inspiration, and the likes of Future Islands and Chvrches show traces of OMD’s DNA.

Sharkmuffin Premieres Spooky New Music Video "Factory" via TIDAL

SHARKMUFFIN

 
PREMIERES MUSIC VIDEO via TIDAL
"FACTORY"


WATCH HERE 

 
SPLIT CASSETTE WITH THE OFF WHITE
OUT JULY 21
VIA LITTLE DICKMAN

Sharkmuffin, led by grunge-glam Brooklyn babes, Tarra Thiessen and Natalie Kirch, are consistently turning out new music before you even have time to get the old songs out of your head!” – BUST Magazine


 
“Brooklyn’s Sharkmuffin is the musical embodiment of Whitman’s famous adage, ‘I contain multitudes.”…like glitter dredged in hot, sticky tar.” 
– The Le Sigh

Sharkmuffin are either the most glam garage band around, or the grungiest glam band around.” – NPR

“…new punks with old school sensibilities…this is a vicious band with plenty of teeth.” – Consequence of Sound 

“Brooklyn’s Sharkmuffin play scuzzy, ornery glam-rock with a strut – think T. Rex by way of Hole, or perhaps a more acrid Sweet.” – CLYVYNT


SHARE/WATCH VIDEO FOR “FACTORY”

Sharkmuffin has teamed up with TIDAL to exclusively premiere their latest music video for the single, “Factory.” The video is styled in a fun silent movie setting that takes you onto a Victorian horror themed journey through the bands transgression in time as coming of age vampires who end up acquiring a factory and aim to protect it from a Donald Trump takeover.
TIDAL members can check out the video here: tidal.com/Sharkmuffin and you can embed it here: http://tdl.sh/SharkmuffinFactory

This past week, the rock duo performed on the TIDAL Rising Stage at  SummerScreen, Brooklyn’s free film and concert series.


“This video tells the story of women factory workers from the late 1900s who have been transformed into vampires and work in their factory throughout the 20th century until present day. At the end of the video, Donald Trump attempts to take over the factory that they worked at for over 100 years and gained the rights to own & run so, sadly, the vampire family devours him."

"The song "Factory" is about a young and naive factory worker who is in love with, and eventually has an affair with the factory owner. This film was shot by Eric Durkin, who lent us his office for the finale. We ran with this theme and then took it through the ages, starting with the turn of 20th century up until present day. Only we added vampires to the mix. The initial shots are of Tarra and I as Factory workers in the early 1900s. Vram (The Big Drops/ Wild Moon) is the owner of a fabric factory  and original nosferatu sire who bites Tarra, setting off multiple rounds of turnings and feedings. Davey (Lost Boy ?/ So So Glos) enters the picture in the 1940s, when Tarra and I are working on a can line during WWII. Davey's character is interested in purchasing the factory from then-owners and vampires Drew and Chris. By the end, we are in the current era and Tarra and I - the female vampires - are the business owners. It ends with a non-transformative consumption by the 2017 vampire family," says bassist Natalie Kirch.

Their band also celebrates their up-coming EP Split Cassettea split with psychedelic punk meets rock band The Off White. Split Cassette will be released July 21 via Little Dickman records. Check out Sharkmuffin’s upcoming US tour dates below.

TIDAL’s commitment to connecting fans with their favorite musicians has spanned dozens of live streams, thousands of ticket giveaways, and an extensive array of exclusive content – including: TIDAL X 1015, a star studded benefit concert; TIDAL X live streams from Bon Jovi, Flogging Molly, Alicia Keys and more; exclusive first looks at content from indie artists, such as Eyelids, Guided by Voices, Fruit & Flowers and more; unique content including Nick Jonas’s Last Year Was Complicated, Rick Ross’ album annotations and more!

FOSTER THE PEOPLE’S NEW ALBUM SACRED HEARTS CLUB OUT TODAY; SET TO PERFORM ON THE LATE LATE SHOW

FOSTER THE PEOPLE’S NEW ALBUM 
SACRED HEARTS CLUB OUT TODAY

SET TO PERFORM ON THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH 
JAMES CORDEN ON JULY 24

BAND ON TOUR NOW
Press Assets: https://sm01.app.box.com/v/FTPsacredheartsclub

“It's a wild feeling releasing something that's been living inside the safe corridors of my heart for the last few years. Like releasing a bird that has finally earned its right to fly. I think it's important for you to know we made this record with joy and musical freedom. Any time the idea of past expectations, pressure to perform, or commerce came into the creative picture, we tried our best to push it out and lock the door.

We live in a trying time right now. Racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and religious persecution are more rampant than ever. This record was made in defiance against those cancerous ideas. Hopefully it makes you feel as it made us feel when we were working on it - that life is beautiful. And love will always be bigger than politics.”

With love,
Mark
