Multi-platinum selling alternative rock band SEETHER (Shaun Morgan – Vocals/Guitar, Dale Stewart – Bass/Vocals, and John Humphrey – Drums) has had a blistering 2014. Their sixth studio album, Isolate and Medicate (Bicycle Music Company/Concord) produced by Brendan O’Brien, (Pearl Jam, Springsteen) was released in July to rave reviews and impressive sales with a #4 debut on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart. The band’s new single, “Same Damn Life”, recently broke into Active Rock Radio’s Top 10 after ‘most added’ status in its first three weeks. “Same Damn Life” follows the album’s first smash single “Words As Weapons” which spent five weeks this summer at #1, making it the bands 12th #1 hit. The official video for “Same Damn Life” premiered worldwide on VEVO last week, watch it here: Seether – Same Damn Life.
PAPA ROACH have been known as chart-toppers since the explosion of their first album, INFEST and their smash single “Last Resort” in 2000. On January 27, 2015 the band will celebrate the 15th anniversary of INFEST by releasing their 8th studio album and most infectious, invigorating, and incendiary body of work to date, F.E.A.R. You can check out the video for the first single “Face Everything And Rise” on www.paparoach.com and the album can be pre-ordered at http://smarturl.it/PRoach_FEAR as of today. PAPA ROACH’s brand of melodic rock played a big part in shaping the newly resurgent nu metal scene. Returning to dominate the resurgence, the band recorded F.E.A.R. in Las Vegas, NV with producers Kevin and Kane Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Hellyeah, In This Moment, Five Finger Death Punch) in early 2014. They are sure to wrap up these shows on a really high note, as they are known for their energetic live performance.
Opening band, KYNG released their new studio album Burn The Serum (Razor & Tie) earlier this year. The Los Angeles outfit may only boast three members—Eddie Veliz [vocals/guitar], Pepe Clarke [drums], and Tony Castaneda [bass/backup vocals]—but their collective roar could easily tip the Southern California Richter Scale. Islander’s debut album Violence & Destruction (Victory Records, July 2014), driven by the infectious single, “Coconut Dracula”, is now a mainstay at Rock Radio and Sirius-XM. Openers, ISLANDER have made scores of new fans through their driving work ethic, criss-crossing the US on tours like: Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, support legs with Pop Evil, Otherwise, and Nonpoint, and destination festivals like Aftershock and Louder Than Life. Alternative Press nailed it: “these guys might just be the new force of heavy rock.”
