Prog Ensemble Circuline’s New Album “C.O.R.E” Released on the Inner Nova Music Label on September 20th, 2024

Prog Ensemble Circuline’s highly anticipated new album “C.O.R.E.” will be released on the Inner Nova Music label on September 20th, 2024. Circuline’s 2024 “C.O.R.E.” Virtual Tour began Friday, January 12th, 2024, and will consist of 57 events in 48 weeks, with Single releases, Lyric videos, Official videos, “Behind the Scenes” videos, and Livestream Q&A events where the band is able to connect with their fans around the world.

Says keyboardist Andrew Colyer, “With this international virtual tour, we have two goals: 1.) We want to get our music exposed to as many people as possible, to continue to grow our fan base worldwide. 2.) We want to deepen our relationships with the fans who are the most passionate. Releasing singles, lyric videos, and Official Videos accomplishes the first goal, and by doing these in-depth, ‘Behind the Scenes’ videos, we accomplish the second goal. Packaging everything together into a single 12-month celebration of the new album will hopefully capture more attention for future opportunities for live performing and touring, with this fantastic new lineup.”

Circuline’s “C.O.R.E.” was written and recorded between 2018 and 2023, for this album the band wanted to keep all the writing “in-house”. So, the majority of the material was written by Andrew, Darin, and Natalie. Billy Spillane had input into almost every song, before he decided it was time to move on. Two of the songs were co-written with Matt Dorsey, who is still a good friend and colleague of the band’s – Andrew will be performing with his band at the International ProgStock Festival this year.  Alek Darson had invaluable input during the writing and arranging stages. Shelby and Dave brought new perspectives and their own unique artistry to these songs, and the band couldn’t be happier with the result. The icing on the cake is to have good friend Joe Deninzon (Kansas, Stratospheerius) as a Guest Artist for some killer electric violin parts!

Says Andrew, “Since the music is the easiest part of the writing for us, we focused on the Songwriting - the lyrics and melodies. That’s the hardest part for us, which is one of the many reasons it took so long to finish the record. We are natural “long-form storytellers”, with most of our songs in the past being six to eight minutes long. Our intention is to appeal to a wider audience, which often means shorter attention spans, so we challenged ourselves to write some shorter, “radio-friendly, pop-rock” songs. We also wanted to write some faster songs, since our default in the past has been in the mid-tempo, more mellow range. So, we accomplished that. I got my ‘power ballad anthem’ in there. Of course, our influences of modern and classic progressive rock, such as YES, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Steven Wilson, and Gong, are also represented. It’s definitely an eclectic album.”

Track Listing
1) Tempus Horribilis (6:22) - out of the gate, a proggy epic about the turbulent times we’ve been living in.....
2) Third Rail (4:20) - a short-form song about the hazardous topics in relationships.....
3) Say Their Name (6:18) - think “Steven Wilson meets Pierre Moerlin’s Gong”.....
4) All (7:54) - co-written with Matt Dorsey, it’s a prog epic in 9.....
5) Temporal Thing (5:51) - a song about the ambivalence that can present in long-term relationships.....
6) You (6:22) - dark, man.....
7) Blindside (6:08) - co-written with Matt Dorsey, it’s your power ballad anthem.....
8) Transmission Error (9:23) - another song about relationships, “finding yourself”, or space creatures.  We still can’t decide.  It’s your 10-minute prog epic to close the album!

Recorded at:
The Cave, Red Hook, New York.  Engineered by Andrew Colyer.
Old Street Studios, London, England.  Engineered by Shelby Logan Warne
Open Sky Studios.  Baltimore, Maryland.  Engineered by Dave Bainbridge.
Joe’s Place.  Kansas Touring Rig.  Engineered by Joe Deninzon.

Mixed by Billboard-charting veteran producer Robert Berry (Keith Emerson, Carl Palmer, Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, John Wetton, Jordan Rudess, Ambrosia, Sammy Hagar, December People, 3.2 band, Six by Six band) at Soundtek Studios in Campbell, California.

Guitar Virtuoso MARCUS NAND Announces Brand New Solo Album THE TRAVELER, Shares New Single “MAKE A LITTLE TIME!”

Los Angeles, CA – Internationally renowned guitar player Marcus Nand is thrilled to announce the release of his brand new single "Make A Little Time," the latest offering from his forthcoming solo album, The Traveler. Born in the UK and raised in Spain, Marcus Nand's musical journey has been deeply influenced by his diverse background in flamenco guitar, blues, and rock. His unique blend of styles has earned him acclaim in projects such as the metal band Freak Of Nature, featuring White Lion singer Mike Tramp, and the world music-influenced rock band Ziroq, alongside famed David Bowie bassist Carmine Rojas.

Released on the heels of the album’s first single, the propulsive rocker “Long Way Down,” “Make A Little Time” slows things down for a mid-tempo track that gives Nand plenty of space to showcase his tasteful guitar playing. It also highlights Nand’s powerful, soulful vocals, which demonstrate the incredible amount of passion and love Nand pours into his music.

Stream/download the single: https://cleorecs.com/search?q=marcus+nand

Speaking about the album as a whole, Nand says, “The Traveler is definitely a very musical guitar album - but not as you’d expect. There are lots of textures and depth to the guitars and I was careful in making sure they created an atmosphere and supported the vocals. A lot of care went into the writing, production and the vocals because I wanted every element to be strong and sound like a great ‘band’ - which I think it does!”

The Traveler is a testament to Nand's exceptional talent and dedication, with each track composed or co-written by Nand himself. The album features guest appearances by Nand’s former bandmates Tramp and Rojas as well as Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens and others, who add a rich layer of collaboration to the project.

Marcus Nand's The Traveler is more than just an album; it is a musical odyssey that invites listeners to embark on a journey through Nand's diverse influences and experiences. Look for it on CD, vinyl and digital starting August 2!

STEVE PLUNKETT, The Voice Of Rock Band AUTOGRAPH, Unveils Long-Awaited Second Solo Album, Shares First Single!

Los Angeles, CA – The year was 1984, the year of the cassette boombox and the Sony Walkman, and the year when a little band from Los Angeles invited the world to “Turn Up The Radio.” That band was Autograph, fronted by the fiery-haired powerhouse vocalist Steve Plunkett, and their single became an immediate smash hit from the debut album Sign In Please and was featured in numerous films and TV shows of that era.

But as big as Autograph was, it could not contain the creative energy of Plunkett. He soon found a new career as an in-demand songwriter for bands such as The Go-Go's, Edgar Winter and Vixen as well as doing production work for Cyndi Lauper and Graham Nash. He released his first solo album in 1991, an album that showed Plunkett’s growing confidence in both his own songwriting and studio techniques. Now, more than 3 decades later, Plunkett is ready to release his second solo album, a smokin’ hot collection called Straight Up.

This 10-track all-killer, no-filler album cranks up the volume knob to 11 and shows that Plunkett hasn’t lost an ounce of the passion and power that made him a hard rock hero! Just check out the album’s first single, “Rock Machine,” which kicks off with a driving guitar lick and chanted lyric that lunges straight at the listener’s jugular. It’s a powerblast of pure, unfiltered rock mania as only Plunkett knows how to deliver.

Stream/download the single: https://orcd.co/steveplunkett_rockmachine

Reflecting on the album, Plunkett declares, “With Straight Up, I wanted to get back to rock basics. No parameters or targets - just the kind of real rock that got me excited back in the day. Fast, fun and loud!”

Stream/download the single: https://orcd.co/steveplunkett_rockmachine

Straight Up will be available on both CD and digital July 26. Order your copy today!

Austrian jazz/fusion guitarist Gerald Gradwohl released his critically acclaimed new album “… Or What?” on May 3, 2024. In support of his new album, Gerald has released a new promotional video.

Adam Nitti, Kirk Covington, Bill Evans, Gergo Borlai and Stephan Maass. What sounds like a “Who's Who” in the present jazz-rock/fusion scene, is actually the lineup for electric guitarist Gerald Gradwohl's new album “…Or What?”

A Jazz, Rock and Funk gumbo combined to make an energetic, and exciting project, that not only showcases the amazing instrumental capabilities of these musicians, but also features the exceptional musicality, and the extraordinary chemistry that this band creates together.

Gerald has worked with Kirk Covington since 2002, when they recorded the album “ABQ” with Bob Berg, and Gary Willis, the album making big waves in the fusion scene. The idea to make a mutual album with Adam and Kirk was given birth during the tour in 2014 and could now finally be realized this year.

Modern recording techniques have made it possible to capture these exceptional musicians together on this album. The sessions and what was captured cannot be described in words here……you'll need to hear the recording. It's stunning.

Working at the highest level of quality, jazz meets rock!”

THE RAVEONETTES Announce Highly Anticipated New Covers Album “Sing…” & First U.S. Tour In A Decade, Share Fresh Take On EVERLY BROTHERS Classic “ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM!”

Los Angeles, CA – Acclaimed indie rock duo The Raveonettes are set to take their hypnotic, dream pop sound to new heights on a much-anticipated new album, “Sing...,” available everywhere on July 19. This album is a remarkable collection of inspired covers, showcasing the band's unique interpretations of classics by The Shangri-Las, The Cramps, Buddy Holly, The Shirelles, The Velvet Underground, and many more!

Fans have already been clamoring about the band’s surprisingly lush cover of the beloved Gram Parsons alt-country masterpiece “Return Of The Grievous Angel,” released earlier this month. And today The Raveonettes treat us to the dreamiest of rock lullabies, the sweetly lilting Every Brothers ballad “All I Have To Do Is Dream.” Drenched in reverb with brittle, chiming guitars and a floor tom-heavy drum groove that’ll wake the neighbors, The Raveonettes turn the Everly’s sweet soda-fountain ‘50s bop into a modern shoegaze epic with a breadth and depth that you have to hear to believe.

Guitarist/vocalist Sune Rose Wagner says, “Sharin and I used to perform songs by The Everly Brothers before we changed our name to The Raveonettes, so our love for this band goes way back. You won’t find a more dreamy song than ‘All I Have To Do Is Dream,’ it’s the perfect lullaby in my book. We loved recording our version and hope people will rediscover such a timeless classic.”

Stream/download the single: https://orcd.co/theravonettes_allihavetodoisdream

The Raveonettes, consisting of Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo, have carved out a unique niche in the indie rock scene with their signature blend of dark, moody soundscapes and melodic pop sensibilities. With "Sing...," they push their creative boundaries even further, breathing new life into timeless tracks while preserving the essence that made them iconic. Watch for “Sing…” to be released on all formats including CD and vinyl July 19!

Multi-instrumentalist Mike Ian Releases New Americana Album “Waterworks Junction - Time Will Tell”

New release under the band name“Waterworks Junction” - A work from longtime friends and collaborators Matt Janda & Mike Ian and introducing Gab Howarth.

New music with an Americana, Rootsy vibe to it with elements of Bluegrass. Some of these tunes date back to the late 90’s where Mike & Matt recorded demos at Mike’s home studio, Eyeball Studios in NJ. At that time the tunes had a more progressive, Peter Gabriel type vibe with Mike performing instrumentation and both Mike and Matt performing vocal duties. Mike had met Gabby a few years back and was quite impressed by her vocals. The two started gigging together quite frequently. Matt then approached Mike at one of their gigs with the idea of having Gab do vocals for a resurrection of these older tunes. A female approach if you will.

The three members fine tuned these tunes both musically and lyrically over the course of a year and were quite happy with how it was shaping out. Mike had the chance to perform on a multitude of acoustic instruments including mandolin, pedal steel, upright bass, drums, piano, etc.  And various guest artists performed throughout. It turned into a full 14 song album entitled “Waterworks Junction - Time Will Tell” - The story of a woman from adolescence to her senior navigating the landscape of her life, loves, contemplations, desperations, and all of the other fabrics weaving the tapestry of her life. From a carefree childhood, through marriage, World War I, childbirth, the depression, World War II, the 50’s, the turbulent 60’s, and into the second Age of Enlightenment- the 70’s.

The artwork was once again done by Mike’s daughter, Ivy whom also did last years release “The Learning Tree”

“Collapse the Wave” is not just an auditory experience; it’s a journey through the self and the cosmos, making for a listening experience that is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining and fun.

Additionally, L.A. session musician Pablo Hopehayn contributes on strings. The backing vocals on Brain Damage are skillfully provided by Jeff Sanson, Liz Hall, and Linda Alvarado.

“The Changing Tide” will be available for streaming on all major platforms and will also be released on CD through Melodic Revolution Records.

Drum Legend Simon Phillips and Ex Asia’s John Payne Discuss the New Intelligent Music Project’s “Miracles Beyond” Released May 15, 2024!

The new album “Miracles Beyond” featuring members of TOTO, ex-Asia, Nazareth and others, is dedicated to Free Spirits

Intelligent Music Project continues to stand out as one of the most compelling rock projects in the music world over the last 12 years. During this time, the project has gifted their fans with 7 albums featuring the participation of world-famous, top-notch musicians, and they show no signs of slowing down.

Featuring Carl Sentance, Joseph Williams, Simon Phillips, John Payne & Ernest Tibbs!

Just a few days before the official release on May 15th of the eighth album by Intelligent Music Project titled “Miracles Beyond”, the band shared a video of John Payne (ex ASIA), Simon Phillips (TOTO/Mike Oldfield) and Ernest Tibbs (Protocol) talking about the album.

Says John Payne (Vocalist on IMP III, IV, V, VI, VII), “I feel as a part of the Intelligent Music Project family. I am proud to say that I’ve been one of the main singers of Intelligent Music Project – I’ve done many albums with this project and I want you to look out for the new album, called ‘Miracles Beyond’ – it’s coming out shortly! This project started with little seeds, and now it’s growing and growing and the players again are wonderful. I know that lyrically even though Milen, who writes all the songs, it’s not his native language, but his grasp of the English language is probably a lot better than many English and American people I know. The songs are great, it’s an interesting album, there is some pretty rocky stuff on this one, and I see influences from bands like Queen, progressive music, pop music and really deep meaning songs.”

Says Simon Phillips (Drummer on IMP II, III, IV, V, VII, VIII), “As with any project that repeats and makes more than one album, it changes. The style evolves, it becomes stronger and that is what I believe has happened with Intelligent Music Project.”

Ernest Tibbs (Bass player on IMP IV & VIII) adds, “Simon and I, we’ve been playing together for many years and Simon invited me to be a part of the project a second time. The vocal tunes are richer now, I enjoy the vocals, I enjoy the compositions, just beautiful! I would like to see the record released, so that more people can hear music like this. It’s harmonically very adventurous, and it’s still very listenable.”

Watch the promotional video: https://we.tl/t-DCcKqtjfZ7

Listen to the first single of the album “Shine for You,” to preview the musical journey that awaits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=879i-dOvKjI

Intelligent Music Project is a Bulgarian supergroup with an exceptionally international line-up, created in 2011 by Bulgarian businessman, philanthropist, and arts patron Dr. Milen Vrabevski, who is not only the project’s producer but also the composer of the band’s music and lyrics.

Melodic Rock Icons ENUFF Z’NUFF Take Us Back To Where It All Began With A Full Album Of Demos Recorded Prior To Their Debut Album!

Los Angeles, CA - Enuff Z'nuff, the revered melodic rock band hailing from the heart of Chicago, is set to unveil a treasure trove of their musical origins with the release of a captivating collection of demo recordings. These recordings, crafted prior to the band's iconic self-titled debut album, offer a raw and impassioned glimpse into the genesis of Enuff Z'nuff's illustrious career.

The forthcoming collection, entitled The 1987 Demos, showcases the band's classic lineup of Chip Z’nuff, Donnie Vie, Derek Frigo, and Vikki Foxx, exuding a fervor and authenticity that transcends even their acclaimed major label releases. Fans worldwide have long revered these early compositions, recognizing the embryonic stages of Enuff Z'nuff's signature sound. Now they get to experience these songs as never before!

Among the gems featured in this collection are early renditions of beloved classics such as the chart-topping single "Fly High Michelle," alongside anthems like "New Thing" and "I Could Never Be Without You." These early versions offer a unique perspective, capturing the essence of the band's evolution and the raw talent that propelled them to international acclaim. Check out the demo version of “New Thing,” which has been released as a single to all music platforms today!

Stream/download the single: https://orcd.co/enuffznuff_newthing1987demo

“Before we got our first record deal,” explains EZ’s founding lead vocalist Donnie Vie, “Chip and I had written and demoed at least 50 pretty good songs. It was hard to choose which ones to shop. We basically put together what we felt would be a great record and shopped it as that. Needless to say, the label loved it, so we went to work re-recording it on a grander scale (and waste $200K. Haha). I personally think we could've just had this mixed, because most of it was recorded and produced exactly the same way. The songs stand on their own, and this was the way it was done - on our own.”

Chip, who oversaw this project and composed liner notes for the album, declares  “ Here are the warts, scars, and tattoos of our labor, when it all started over 3 decades ago!”

The 1987 Demos will be available on both CD and vinyl starting on May 31! The CD version includes two bonus tracks not available anywhere else - a cover of Hendrix’s “Manic Depression” and an original song “Runaway!”

Country Icon SAMMY KERSHAW Sings The Blues On His Newest Studio Album Of Revamped Blues Classics 'Cross Road Blues', Shares Blistering Cover Of FLEETWOOD MAC’s “OH WELL!”

Los Angeles, CA - Renowned country music luminary Sammy Kershaw takes a soul-stirring journey into the heart of blues with the unveiling of his latest studio album, Cross Road Blues! The album serves as an homage to the rich tapestry of blues music that has profoundly influenced Kershaw’s music over the course of his nearly 4-decade career and showcases Kershaw's unparalleled vocal prowess and gift for interpretation.

Seamlessly blending traditional blues elements like the haunting melodies of Robert Johnson and the fiery riffs of Albert King with Kershaw’s signature country charm, Cross Road Blues traverses the vast intersection of blues and country music, offering listeners a front-row seat to Kershaw's masterful reinterpretations. The album also mixes this heady brew with a bit of rockabilly stomp, courtesy of producer and rockabilly guitar icon Danny B. Harvey, as witnessed on one of the album’s standout tracks, a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well (Part 1).” Those who only know the Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks era of Fleetwood Mac are in for a real treat as Kershaw and Harvey revive this Peter Green-era gem of a song that comes with one of the most devastating guitar riffs of all time!

Dutch Music Legends Focus Announce New Studio Album “FOCUS 12” Available July 5, 2024

Spirit of Unicorn Music are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of “FOCUS 12”, the brand new studio album from Focus.

Founded by Thijs van Leer, Focus have been at the forefront of the progressive music movement since 1969, yet they still continue to deliver engaging, innovative and skillfully crafted music. “FOCUS 12” exemplifies this and proves why they are still a firm fan favourite, the world over.

For Thijs van Leer (75) and Pierre van der Linden (78), age is nothing more than a number. Both continue to contribute to Focus with a passion. Thijs, who has written the majority of the new album, rises at 4.30 am every day in order to work on his compositions. Whilst the album boasts some of Pierre’s greatest and most energetic drum sequences to date.

Allowing the younger guard to take the audio reins for the first time, “FOCUS 12” is produced by band members Udo Pannekeet and Menno Gootjes, who also contribute two compositions on the album.

Thijs commented “How beautiful life can be when a band plays so easily and so together.”

“FOCUS 12” was recorded at the world-renowned Wisseloord Studios, in the band’s native country of the Netherlands. A first for Focus, the album features a completely improvised piece which was captured as it spontaneously took place in the studio, during the recording process. Thus, proving that more than 50 years on, the band are still excited by undertaking something new and different.

Van Leer continues, “Thanks Pierre, Udo and Menno for so much musical passion!”

The band continues their long association with legendary artist Roger Dean whose stunning artwork graces the front cover and packaging. The vinyl version features a stunning gatefold sleeve.

Focus continues to be one of the hardest working rock bands on the planet, regularly touring the globe playing live. This July, they undertake a string of live dates across the USA and Canada, as part of Asia’s Heat Of The Moment Tour.

Thijs van Leer concludes, “After all these years, Focus is in the here and now; the triumph of survival!”

Newly Restored Vintage Horror Punk Band MOURNING NOISE Featuring DANZIG/SAMHAIN Member STEVE ZING Unleashes Scorching New Single & Video In A Preview Of Their Upcoming New Album!

Los Angeles, CA – Brace yourselves for a full-throttle sonic onslaught from the newly reunited and souped-up horror punk hot rods, Mourning Noise! Founded and powered by legendary drummer Steve Zing, of Samhain and Danzig fame, Mourning Noise carried the torch of Misfits-styled gothic horrorcore in the early ‘80s before taking a somewhat less than brief hiatus in 1984. But now, 40 years later, the band is pulling itself out of the garage and revving its engine once again as original bassist Chris Morance and original lead guitarist Tommy Koprowski are joined by new guitarist/lead vocalist Robby Bloodshed for a brand new studio album set for release on June 7!

The band previewed its newly renovated model on 2022’s EP “At The Seville,” which showcased a much more muscular, high performance, super-charged sound that expanded on their early dark rock beginnings. For their first new full-length album in 40 years, entitled Screams / Dreams, Zing and the boys have put together an all-original album with go-for-the-throat guitar riffs, head smashing percussion frenzies, and dramatically dark lyrics that will have you screaming for more! Today the band releases the album’s high energy title track along with a stellar performance video filmed at the Prudential Center in Newark NJ to give listener’s a small taste of what’s in store.

Beloved Hollywood Icon WILLIAM SHATNER Unveils New Single & Lyric Video From His First Ever Children’s Album 'Where Will The Animals Sleep? - Songs For Kids And Other Living Things'!

Los Angeles, CA – One of the greatest storytellers of his generation, a scion of the stage, master of the musical performance and fearless artistic innovator is facing his toughest audience yet - kids! William Shatner, beloved Star Trek actor and real-life space traveler, proudly presents his newest musical project, an ingenious, infectious and thoroughly entertaining album, Where Will The Animals Sleep? - Songs For Kids And Other Living Things! This 13-song project unites the talents of Shatner with longtime guitarist for They Might Be Giants, Dan Miller, and award-winning YA novelist Robert Sharenow, who together create a menagerie of characters drawn from the animal kingdom who sing and dance and share their stories on this whimsical and educational release. Mr. Shatner declares, “This is a children’s album but I think children of all ages will be intrigued and entranced at the songs that are on this album!”

So come along on a wondrous journey through the natural world with William Shatner as your guide and narrator through the sticky sweet adventures of the honey bee, to the majesty of bird migrations, to the hidden world of the Coral Sea, and the secret communication between mushrooms and trees. For a preview of what’s to come, check out the album’s first single “Elephants And Termites,” a hilarious and captivating look at the unique symbiotic relationship between the large, itchy elephants and the tiny termites whose nests provide the perfect scratching post. The song, as well as the album, is sure to inspire and cultivate a love for creatures of all kinds, shape and size!
