Nick Reese and Robert Sodaro of JOYOUS WOLF Converses with Madness To Creation on Buddy Holly, “Quiet Heart” and Mental Health Awareness

Editor's Note:  It was so good conversing with Nick Reese and Robert Sodaro of Joyous Wolf for Madness To Creation.  This interview took place backstage at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa as they were getting ready to provide direct support for modern rock heavyweights Buckcherry.  This band is riding a wave of momentum as people have been talking about their intense live shows along with "Quiet Heart" and their ridiculous cover of "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain.  Fans can find Joyous Wolf at the following locations: www.facebook.com/joyouswolf www.joyouswolf.com www.instagram.com/joyouswolfmusic Nick:  This venue is really cool, I went and saw the crash site earlier, that was a big deal for me.

(Concert Review) FEYER Live at The Bowery Electric in New York, New York (4/14/2019)

On April 14th, Feyer brought their unique approach to electronic music to The Bowery Electric main stage.  They’re one part synths, one part heavy metal, and a lot of passion. Frontman Andrew Feyer is what would happen if Andrew WK spend his youth playing video games rather than partying hard.  His performance is magnetic and self effacing, and his unique charm disarms the audience. Performing as a three piece, Feyer ripped through their set with a blistering energy that could have been felt from a mile away.   The blend of nerd-core electronic music and the heavy bass drumming may turn some people off at first, but Feyer finds a way to make it work and put on a thrilling show.  The audience was enthralled from the first note and the Bowery Electric was shaking by the end of his set. ...

(Album Review) “Makes Good Choices” by The 1984 Draft

Out of Dayton, Ohio is a band that mixes garage rock, indie rock with some succinct songwriting and wordplay with an Americana feel called The 1984 Draft.  Under the tutelage and guidance of Pat Himes(Ryan Adams), the band is set to release their latest record entitled "Makes Good Choices". The 1984 Draft have quite the resume for being a band out of Dayton.  The band has shared the stage with the likes of Andrew W.K., Every Time I Die, Murder By Death, and Off With Their Heads.  This is where their resume gets more unique in comparison to the majority of the bands that I've covered.  In 2014, The 1984 Draft released their EP entitled "Bo Jackson Up The Middle" and the band was featured on the NFL Network's documentary of the actual 1984 NFL Draft, which Irving Fryar, WR out of Nebraska...

The Backseat Bullets Converses with Evan of Madness To Creation on Major Influences and Albany Music Scene

Contributor's Note:  I was lucky enough to catch The Backseat Bullets and talk with them about their origin story, musical influences, and a bunch of other cool stuff.  If you ever find yourself in Albany and in need of some sweet, sweet pop punk you gotta catch one of their shows.   How did you guys meet?   Zac and I met at junior prom when I [Jeremy] was an emergency prom date. After a year Zac made a post saying they were looking for a drummer and I hit him up not thinking much of it but after that first practice, something clicked. We met our bassist Paul through mutual friends and at this mini festival we threw in our hometown for local bands.   Who are some of your biggest influences? Zac: American Pleasure Club (fka Teen Suicide) , Nothing, My Bloody Va...

“Too Far Gone” by Cane Hill…Power and Strength!

Deep in the backwoods of Louisiana comes a band that has a newfound purpose, a new found sobriety(congratulations to Cane Hill), and a renewed sense of focus which is allowing them to cultivate copious amounts of power and strength as Cane Hill has released "Too Far Gone" via Rise Records. Elijah Reed, vocalist of Cane Hill, has stated that it was them wanting to feel invincible and all powerful via LSD that caused them to lose themselves and they went on a journey to rediscover who they are, and what we have now is a band that gives fascism the middle finger and sobriety the fist pump salute with their latest offering entitled "Too Far Gone", which was released January 19th via Rise Records. "Too Far Gone" starts off with the title track, which showcases the power and the return of mode...

Editor's Note:  When Loudwire acknowledges your album "unReal" as "Best of 2017", you know that My Ticket Home is offering something special in their music.  Believe me when I say it, the more I listen to "unReal", the more layers that there are to unpack and the more sides you see to the band My Ticket Home.  They have recently came off of their successful tour providing support for hard rock heavyweights Nothing More and Hell Or Highwater and they recently announced that they will be performing at Rock On The Range in Columbus, Ohio, which is occurring from May 18th-20th.  Information in regards to Rock On The Range will be below the interview!  Check out our conversation with Matt Gallucci of My Ticket Home below!
