Nov. 26, 2019, SAN FRANCISCO – Faith No More return to the road next Summer, announcing what will be the band’s first European performances in five years: Hellfest (June 20), Sunstroke (June 13) and Tons of Rock (June 26), with more European festival performances to be announced soon.

“Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe asap,” said the band, collectively.

Faith No More last played in Europe in June of 2015, following the May 2015 release of Sol Invictus (Ipecac/Reclamation Recordings). The collection debuted atop the international sales charts: #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, and #6 in both the U.S. and UK. Rolling Stone dubbed the 10-song album “triumphant, the New Yorker called it “a reminder of everything that made Faith No More great in the first place,” and the Los Angeles Times said, “Faith No More has a history of defying expectations, and that’s what it’s doing again with Sol Invictus.”

Faith No More is Mike Bordin (drums), Roddy Bottum (keyboards), Bill Gould (bass), Jon Hudson (guitar), and Mike Patton (vocals). The San Francisco-born, platinum-selling band have released seven studio albums: We Care A Lot (1985), Introduce Yourself (1987), The Real Thing (1989), Angel Dust (1992), King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime (1995), Album of the Year (1997) and Sol Invictus (2015).

Listen to Theresa Wayman of Warpaint & Carla Azar of Autolux on new St. Francis Hotel single

Theresa Wayman of Warpaint & Carla Azar of Autolux
team up with St. Francis Hotel on "The Truth is Dead"

OUT NOW VIA 30TH CENTURY RECORDS

 
 
November 25, 2019 -- In anticipation of 30th Century Volume 2, the Danger Mouse helmed label is releasing "The Truth is Dead", a new single from acclaimed Irish duo St. Francis Hotel featuring vocals from Theresa Wayman of Warpaint & written with Carla Azar of Autolux.

"A paranoid groove, that echoes and creeks like old floorboards" - FLAUNT

"The Truth Is Dead" follows the duo’s critically acclaimed single "Liar, Liar, Liar (feat. Gaz Coombes)" and is the latest to be taken from their upcoming debut album We Fall Together (Jan 2020), which includes collaborations with Portugal. The Man, Max Rad, and Waterstrider, with more names to be announced. As producers, St Francis Hotel recent production / collaborations include Michael Kiwanuka, Arcade Fire’s Regine Chassagne, and Art School Girlfriend.

“The track's title is probably pretty self-explanatory as to what it’s about. It feels like the kind of song that could only be written now. If you put the four of us in a room together four years ago, we probably couldn’t have conceived this song. Hopefully in a year’s time people won’t need to write songs with titles like ’The Truth Is Dead’”.

In addition to "The Truth is Dead" 30th Century Volume 2 also contains “Ninjarous" the previously unreleased Danger Mouse / Sparklehorse / MF Doom collaboration, highlights from the label’s 2019 releases including Adam Green, The Babe Rainbow, Sam Cohen, Big Search and Husky Loops, plus music by new signings in the form of 20-year-old Los Angeles native Poppy Jean Crawford, New Yorker Baba Ali and Portland’s Alexandra Savior.

Daughters Debut "Guest House" Video As North American Tour Is Imminent  

 
 
DAUGHTERS DEBUT “GUEST HOUSE“ VIDEO AS NORTH AMERICAN TOUR IS IMMINENT

WINTER TOUR FOLLOWS TWO SOLD OUT NORTH AMERICAN OUTINGS IN SUPPORT OF YOU WON’T GET WHAT YOU WANT
 
 
 
 
 
Nov. 25, 2019, Providence – Daughters’ return to the road is imminent, but before the band begins their Winter tour, the Providence-born outfit release their third video from the highly-praised album, You Won’t Get What You Want, debuting a clip for “Guest House” (https://smarturl.it/DaughtersGuestHouse).

The A.F.Cortes directed video for “Guest House” continues Daughters’ exploration into the world of black and white photography and film. Both of the band’s previously released videos from You Won’t Get What You Want, “City Song” (https://youtu.be/KqntnTfFcHE) and “Less Sex” (https://youtu.be/534uNzGoR1s), used the color-free palette to create stunning, thought-provoking pieces that played on darkness and light, shadows and shading, to impart a variety of emotions, from the magic of a flickering candle to the beauty of the human form, and with “Guest House,” the exploration of psychological tension.

It is always exciting to see our work interpreted by talented artists. We first became familiar with Andres through his wonderful photographic work. His ability to capture unique moments, often missed by other photographers, is uncanny and we trusted him to be able to bring the same abilities as a director. 

The “Guest House” video arrives as the band launches a three-week North American tour, kicking off the trek this Saturday with a sold out show at Neumos in Seattle. The tour follows two prior sold out North American outings, a nod to the band’s riveting, and intimate, live performances.

“STILL WAITING TO START”


Today, Scottish artist Nina Nesbitt releases the deluxe edition of her critically acclaimed US debut album, The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change, which has gone on to amass more than HALF-A-BILLION combined global streams and continues to garner more than 25 million streams per month. The very special 29-song deluxe edition, titled The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change & The Flowers Will Fall is out now via Cooking Vinyl. The album compiles the much-loved original album, which featured hit singles including ‘Loyal To Me,’ ‘The Best You Had’, ‘Somebody Special,’ Is It Really Me You’re Missing’ and Colder,’ with a host of new and rare material, including lead track Black & Blue,’ which NYLON Magazine hailed as “an anthem for anyone who can’t get out of their own head,” and has already racked-up more than 4 million streams worldwide. Continuing Nina’s talent for openly exploring issues of vulnerability within her music, the track’s sleek electronic-tinged spin on modernist alt-pop is a natural fit for the original album’s sonic approach.

Also included on the album, Nina’s intimate, torch song approach to Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ which has become a staple of her recent live shows and two previously unreleased songs, ‘Ungrateful’ and current focus track, “Still Waiting To Start,” an infectious indie-electro jam that retains the pop sound that is synonymous with Nina's writing.

Speaking about the new song, Nina reveals "Still Waiting To Start is the last song I wrote for the extended album. A simple, stripped back guitar based song about getting older and treasuring time more and more. There’s so many things I want to experience in life so I wanted to capture that in the song. No matter what age you are, you are constantly changing and starting again."

Listen to “Still Waiting To Start” HERE.
 
The package is completed with acoustic versions of every song from the original album, most of which are previously unreleased. Stripping back the material to intimate acoustic arrangements highlights the compelling and emotionally revealing song-writing that has become a hallmark of Nina’s sound. Also on the horizon, Nina will be releasing a series of videos called 'The Winter Tree Sessions' before Christmas, which comprise of songs from the new deluxe album.

On releasing the deluxe album, Nina adds, "I’m so pleased to present a deluxe version of my album. It’s a huge thank you to all the fans that have supported this album or been there from the start and patiently waited for new music. The fan reaction and streaming success of ‘The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change’ is way beyond anything I’d ever imagined so a deluxe edition feels like the perfect way to wrap it all up!"


Also released today, ‘The Sun Will Come Up (2011 – 2019)’, a new mini-documentary produced by the LA-based creative group, GrandSon and spanning Nina’s entire career to-date, from her musical childhood beginnings all the way through present day, including the whirlwind that lead up to the release of her album, The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change last year. “There’s been as many ups and downs as there have been hair colours,” Nina says in a statement on her Instagram“I’m really proud of what we’ve created and can’t wait for you all to see.” Watch the new film HERE.

As an independently released artist amongst an arena of major label peers, not only has Nina exceeded expectations in the UK and Europe by topping the album and single charts, receiving mainstream radio airplay and selling-out headlining shows across the continent, she has simultaneously made huge waves in America too. With her signature story-telling pop, she’s acquired the likes of Taylor Swift and Chloe Grace-Moretz as fans, has sold-out headlining shows across the country and made her show-stopping late night television debut on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this year. Watch her spellbinding performance of ‘The Best You Had’ HERE.

In the span of less than a year Nasty Cherry has rocketed from obscurity to being one of the most buzzed about new bands.” — PAPER

“Sassy Eighties-MTV girl pop guided by Charli XCX’s rebel spirit” — ROLLING STONE

"Dig deep into the come-up of the buzziest band of the moment” — NYLON

“…LA band serving girl power with a bitchy attitude.”” — FLAUNT

“…as glamorous as rock ’n’ roll can get, Nasty Cherry might just resurrect that bygone era when coordinated girl groups ruled the charts.” — VOGUE

Today, the unstoppable four-piece Nasty Cherry unleash their debut EP ‘Season 1’ on Charli XCX’s Vroom Vroom Recordings (listen here) arriving one week after the reveal of XCX and the band’s unscripted docu-series “I’m With The Band: Nasty Cherry” out now exclusively on NETFLIX (watch here)! 

Spanning six tracks, “Season 1” embodies everything that makes Nasty Cherry one of the most exciting bands of 2019. From "Music With Your Dad," the cheeky, riff-heavy tune that’s sure to loosen even the stiffest hips, to the Charli XCX co-written "Live Forever," an 80s infused bob about a toxic relationship, to the Justin Raisen-produced, snarling-pop masterpiece of "Win," the EP is a body of work that shows that Nasty Cherry are more than worthy of all the hype. EP highlight, “Fuck Modern Love,” (listen here) which sees Gabriette’s vocals washed over pop-shoegaze production, is an empowering break-up anthem and a great showcase of the band’s versatility in both song-writing and lyricism.

‘Season 1’ is the product of GabrietteChloeGeorgia and Debbie moving in together; their first practice to their first performance, writing their debut single (“Win”) and everything in between — all crafted from Charli XCX’s vision to form a girl group. These first steps were captured on “I’m With The Band: Nasty Cherry” out now on Netflix. The unscripted docu-series provides fans with an intimate look into what it takes to launch a band in 2019, following the women as they navigate a new age of music, making up their own rules as they go and blowing up Instagram feeds in the process.

That’s not all for Nasty Cherry, the band will embark on their first ever tour in the new year across the UK & US, with triumphant returns to LondonNew York and Los Angeles, cities which the girls have previously performed at sold-out debut shows, as well as a first appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas this March — see full tour dates below.

Föllakzoid share "IIII (DJ Nobu Remix)" - New Album 'I' on Sacred Bones out now

FÖLLAKZOID 


New Album 'I' Available Now on Sacred Bones

 
Photo By Ebru Yildiz

Following the release of their new album 'I', via Sacred Bones and worldwide tour which covered Africa, Europe and Asia -- Santiago, Chile's Föllakzoid have revealed a new version of album closer, "IIII".

Japanese techno producer DJ Nobu takes the expansive track in a new direction, commenting: "When I heard Föllakzoid's music for the first time, I felt like what we are trying to express are fundamentally similar. In other words, I felt like we are both trying to reach the same destination. And one day we met each other in the forest. Domingae and I discovered that we share the same love for Cortázar. The encounter between Follakzoid and myself is a game designed by the universe. Therefore our collaboration was a destiny, but it also imposed me the most difficult challenges I faced in my music life. I'm extremely relieved and grateful to be able to present the result as a piece of work here."

Listen & Share "IIII (DJ Nobu Remix)": YouTube - Bandcamp

Single Artwork 

llakzoid grows via depuration, aiming with each record to fill longer spaces of time with fewer and fewer elements. The creative perspective of the band has always been about unlearning the narrative and musical knowledge that shape the physical and digital formats and conceptions available, both visually and musically in order to make a time-space metric structure that dissolves both the author and the narrative paradigms. 

Their journey began 10 years ago as a trance experience between childhood friends Domingae and Diego from Santiago, Chile. Heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of the Andes, the band has learned to integrate their origins with contemporary sounds and technologies of our times, creating a rich yet minimal electronic-organic atmosphere.

Unlike past Föllakzoid records that were done in single takes with the full band, this record took three months to construct out of more than 60 separate stems - guitars, bass, drums, synthesizers, and vocals, all recorded in isolation. Producer Atom TM, who was not present for recording, was then asked to re-organize the four sequences of stems without any length, structural restrictions or guidelines. 

The result of this was a set of songs where neither the band's, nor the producer's, structural vision primarily shaped the metric or tonal space shifts, but where both were still subliminally present in each of the parts that form the structure and the frequency modulations that guide them.
