SCORPIONS fans worldwide can check out the exclusive worldwide premiere of the brand new live performance video for “Holiday” on USA Today.com. The never-before-seen (or heard) video was recorded during the beautifully orchestrated stripped-down concerts that became SCORPIONS’ forthcoming CD/DVD and Blu-Ray release, MTV UNPLUGGED, but does not appear on any configuration of the releases.

“Holiday” |  On USA Today.com

Due out in North America on January 21st, material from MTV UNPLUGGED is taken from SCORPIONS’ first-ever “MTV Unplugged” show and features new acoustic versions of their best-loved classic hits, as well as five brand new songs. MTV UNPLUGGED will be available in North America as a deluxe CD + DVD package and as a Blu-Ray, and is being released in 50 countries, a testament to the German band’s iconic status worldwide.

Recorded and filmed on September 11th and September 12th of last year,  SCORPIONS MTV UNPLUGGED was culled from two dynamic acoustic sets at the Lycabettus Theatre in Athens, Greece. The spectacular open-air theatre, situated 300 meters above the city, was an impressive backdrop for the first-ever open-air show in the history of “MTV Unplugged” (the theatre also shares a birth year with SCORPIONS themselves, having been built in 1965.). In other news, SCORPIONS are still in the midst of their epic Farewell World Tour; the tour has been going on for more than three years now. To the delight of their fans there is no end in sight, as to date the band has only played 23 out of the 38 countries planned on the itinerary.

SCORPIONS are Klaus Meine (vocals/guitar), Rudolf Schenker (guitars/vocals), Matthias Jabs (guitars), Pawel Maciwoda (bass) and James Kottak (drums); additional musical support on MTV UNPLUGGED includes contributions from Swedish musicians and producers Mikael Nord Andersson (guitars, mandolin, lap steel, vocals) and Martin Hansen (guitars, harmonica, vocals). The duo is also responsible for the arrangements on MTV UNPLUGGED.

SCORPIONS are one of the most successful international hard rock bands of all time, selling upwards of 75 million records worldwide and playing more than 5,000 concerts in 80+ countries globally. Formed in Germany in 1965, the band has come to be known for their colossal radio and MTV hits “Rock You Like A Hurricane,” “No One Like You” and “Wind Of Change,” as well as their status as international rock ambassadors. VH1 ranked SCORPIONS as the #46 Artist on the “Greatest Artists Of Hard Rock” special, while “Rock You Like A Hurricane” came in at #18 on VH1’s “Greatest Hard Rock Songs”. The band recently received a star on the Hollywood Rock Walk in Los Angeles. To date, the Scorpions have released 18 studio albums and 5 live records.

video ‘stache: Neurotic November Releases “Nonchalant” Lyric Video | New Album Out 10/29

October 1, 2013 Leave a comment

NeuNovHailing from sunny South Florida, Victory Records’ Neurotic November is getting set to release their debut studio album, Annunaki.The aggressively musical quintet recently premiered the lyric video to one of Annunaki‘s tracks, “Nonchalant” on Substream Music Press.

Nonchalant | Lyric Video

Of the video and forthcoming album vocalist Dee Dee (Dirty) comments, “We wanted everything about Anunnaki to be 10 times better than our EP. The fast parts are faster, the instrumentals are beefier, and we definitely upped the ante. We can’t wait to deliver this live.”

Comprised of vocalist Dirty, bassist Bear, Yoshii and Nig on guitar, and Paiste on drums, the members of Neurotic November come from all walks of life and value free-thinking and open-mindedness above all else. Their backflips, unparalleled conviction, and obvious passion work together to create an unforgettable live experience, and their professionalism breeds spotless musicianship.

Ready to take the metal scene by storm, Neurotic November have completed and are ready to release their debut studio album, Anunnaki on October 29th, 2013. Dirty says “The word ‘Anunnaki’ is from ancient Sumerian mythology and it loosely means ‘came from the stars’. There is no better way to explain our sound than to tell you that it is out of this world. We are aliens and revel in what makes us different.”

Officially beginning their journey in 2009, Neurotic November began humbly with Dirty (vocals) posting an ad inquiring about a bassist for his band that had immense potential. Almost immediately his search was fulfilled with the addition of Bear, female bassist who quickly trademarked her aggressive playing style and tough-guy attitude. These two musicians with a dream suffered through multiple line-up changes in order to successfully release their EP Passive May in 2012, which showcased the never-ending energy and exhilarating song structures that began their steady climb towards the top of the metal scene.

Neurotic November Tour Dates:

October 2 | Brooklyn, NY @ Place Bar & Lounge

October 3 | No. Providence, RI @ Columbus Club

October 4 | Pittsfield, MA @Chameleon’s

October 5 | Lemoyne, PA @ Championship

October 7 | Wilmington, DE @ Mojo 13

Campfire OK announces new album, When You Have Arrived out on Sept. 17th and a new video for first single, “Wishing You The Best”

August 8, 2013 Leave a comment

Deeply rooted in Seattle, Campfire OK announces the release of their sophomore album, When You Have Arrived through Fugitive Records on September 17th and will feature “Wishing You The Best” as the first single. The essence of the 12 track alternative genre album establishes a dark psychedelia sound with unassailable harmonies and catchy melodies.

Campfire OK delivers a unique sound that the band so proudly claims as their own swiftly entering the Seattle music scene by performing at festivals such as Doe Bay, Bumbershoot, and The Capitol Hill Block Party.

Campfire OK consists of Mychal Cohen (vocals/piano/guitar), Andrew Eckes (banjo/guitar/trumpet), Brandon Milner (drummer), Aaron Huffman (bassist, formerly with Harvey Danger), and Zarni De Wet (vocals and piano). The songs from the album, When You Have Arrived present themselves in a sprightly, electro-pop manner, some tracks introducing romantic and vulnerable lullabies, while others dance between rhythmic intonations.

Press recognition:

“Campfire OK’s “Strange Like We Are” grows as it goes, with handclaps and three-part harmonies culminating in powerful choruses.” -NPR: Song of The Day

On “Wishing You the Best,” the first single from When You Have Arrived, Cohen delivers his earnest plea (“I’m sorry if I was overbearing / But I didn’t mean it”) backed by the thunder of hand-claps and the spine-tingling sound of Eckes’ banjo. – KEXP-FM

“Campfire OK is one of those beautiful, restless entities that don’t stay in one place for too long, but still manage to write concise, focused songs. The band pushes the boundaries of the revival band stigma, incorporating subtle modern elements (synth swells and delay pedals) effortlessly atop the weathered antique frames of their songs” -Seattle Weekly
