The Janoskians To Unleash New Song That's What She Said

Social Disturbance maestros and pop punk mayhem mavens THE JANOSKIANS will unleash their new song "That's What She Said" [Republic Records] on iTunes and all digital partners on Tuesday, September 9, 2014. Pre-order it here now!

That same day, they'll premiere its wet and wild music video on VEVO. For the video, the boys took over a Southern California beach and did what they do best, create mayhem. Following up their summer anthem’s "Real Girls Eat Cake" and "This F**kin' Song", "That's What She Said" skates along at full speed on a snazzy ska beat and sunny guitar.

You can party with THE JANOSKIANS now on their "Got Cake Tour" hitting cities across the country – full routing below and you can get tickets HERE!

For the unfamiliar, in 2011, THE JANOSKIANS mayhem started brewing when the group uploaded their first “Awkward Train Situations” video to YouTube. As the fan base grew, they continually released hilarious and disruptive content, gaining over 2 million YouTube subscribers and accruing more than 200 million combined views.

Their inaugural “#NotaBoyBand” tour boasted a “Variety Show”-style set that engaged audiences in a revolutionary fashion through manipulating social media. A meet and greet in London’s Hyde Park drew a mob of approximately ten thousand fans, forcing the boys to evacuate. They later shut down the world renowned Beverly Center in L.A. as thousands of girls flooded the mall.  Meanwhile, an appearance in Times Square in February 2014 drew 20,000 fans and major record label attention from REPUBLIC RECORDS, who signed them shortly after.

Additionally, they have joined forces with LIONSGATE® for the development and future release of a feature length film based on their one-of-a-kind brand of "social disturbance comedy". The film, helmed by Danny Lee [Road to Brooklyn, Detroit Rubber] and penned by comedian Dan Ahdoot [Super Fun Night, Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell, Kickin' It], will encompass a partially-scripted comedy packed with stunts, public pranks, wish-fulfillment and hilarity as we follow THE JANOSKIANS adjusting to life in Los Angeles and vowing to throw the most epic party of all time.

The group's manager Jeremy Skaller and Awesomeness TV/Varsity Pictures' Brian Robbins [Smallville, One Tree Hill, Varsity Blues] serve as producers. The big screen might never be the same after THE JANOSKIANS are done.

Keeper release new E.P. Healthy and Delusional 

Formed in late 2012, KEEPER have come a long way since their inception. Starting by playing small local shows up to their most recent UK tour with Classically Handsome Brutes, as well as a 7" EP release through Pinky Swear Records, the band have seen their niche sound received very well. Consider a combination of The Chariot At The Drive In and Defeater and you're getting close. 

With front woman Courtney, audiences get the best of all worlds, sultry ethereal singing combined with aggressive and explosive screams...it's a sight to behold.

Their EP 'Healthy and Delusional' has most recently been featured on the Kerrang! in it's fully streamable form and has so far been extremely well received from fans and critics alike.

The band will be celebrating the release with an EP launch show in Leeds, at Temple Of Boom on September 26.


Josh Pyke announces new single and UK tour with Pylo

Josh Pyke announces new single and UK tour with Pylo

Acclaimed multi-ARIA Award winning (think an Aussie version of the Brits) acoustic troubadour Josh Pyke returns to the UK this autumn to promote his latest record The Beginning And The End Of Everything, his fourth Top 10 Album in his native Australia.

The - as yet little known in the UK - Sydney born Pyke is one of Australia’s most acclaimed current solo artists. Pyke has ventured to the UK before to tour with Emma Pollock (of the Delgado’s) and his long-time friend and writing buddy Passenger, the multi-million selling artist behind 2012’s ‘Let Her Go’.

The uplifting acoustic belter that is the UK single release ‘Leeward Side’ (which for those lacking any knowledge of sailing is the direction downwind from a point of reference) is an allegory for moving on from a past relationship in a positive way. Inspired by the heart of the song, Director Beatrice Pegard Ferry took ‘Leeward Side’s story of adventure, exploration, finding and losing yourself, and wove it into a new narrative depicting the continuous loop that is; evolution. Whilst also managing to throw Josh into a wolf suit in the process, the video was shot 100% sustainably using recycled materials.

The new album The Beginning And The End Of Everything, which hit #7 in the ARIA Album Chart back home amidst more than one sell-out tour of Australia, explores ideas of desire, death and legacy. For Josh these are the beginning and the end of all decisions made in his life and, as with previous albums, a record of a period of time in his life. Recorded with John Castle (The Bamboos, Washington and The Drones), Josh regards The Beginning And The End Of Everything as his most personal release to date.

Josh Pyke returns to the UK supported by Pylo, one of the new breed of young British bands unafraid of soaring melodies, heartfelt vocals, heart on the sleeve emotions and making the kind of joyful racket that fits the bill everywhere from the smallest club to the biggest festival. Described aptly by Q Magazine as “grand-gestured chill-out rock with amped-up vocals that fans of Shearwater and Snow Patrol will fawn over” Pylo are currently working on their debut album for release in 2015, but in the meantime fans can enjoy the stadium-shoe-gazey rock n’ roll of both Bellavue EP and The Woman EP on Naim Edge Records.

Josh Pyke has become one of Australia’s most beloved and recognisable singer songwriters thanks to his ability to craft intelligent pop music with uniquely Australian influences and experiences; this is a unique and intimate opportunity to catch Josh Pyke solo and acoustic.

Limbo Kids to release new single Graceless

Limbo Kids to release new single Graceless

Limbo Kids (Oxford, UK) mould their enduring pop sensibilities with groove-infused disco, shimmering guitar, and simmering synths. 

Graceless’, their 3rd and a half minutes of wide-eyed indie-pop perfection. A tale of that familiar Friday night flying feeling, complete with the inevitable dis-orientation and ‘empty pockets’, ‘Graceless’ wields a gloriously infectious chorus, whilst simple sparkling guitar riffs interlope all above an irresistible disco bass-line typical of the band. 

Recorded and produced by Kit Monteith (Trophy Wife) and Jamie Morris at Safehouse Studios in Oxford. 

Limbo Kids released their first EP ‘Heartshots’ in Summer 2012, also produced by Kit Monteith, and the RG3 EP in Spring 2013. Originally a duo, a full band was assembled in spring 2013 with shows supporting Trophy Wife, Mausi, Eyes and No Eyes. 

Limbo Kids release ‘Graceless’ on 29th September 2014, along with the Graceless video by Liam Martin Film.

The Chainsmokers release New Music Video for Kanye

The Chainsmokers New Music Video Kanye

The Chainsmokers release New Music Video for Kanye

The Chainsmokers' “Kanye” first premiered yesterday on Yahoo! Music, and its cinematic narrative picks up where the music video for the duo’s platinum-selling single “#SELFIE” left off. However, this time around, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall tell an inspirational and invigorating Cinderella story of embracing who you are and owning it. The only proper verb for that action is “Kanye”. Moreover, notable influencers ranging from Mahogany Lox to Romeo Lacoste and Teala Dunn make spirited cameos in the video, making it a true event for the New York electronic dance music upstarts.

BuzzFeed first premiered “Kanye” last month, and it immediately drew a flurry of positive critical and fan reactions in addition to features from People Magazine, Entertainment Tonight, and more. MTV News claimed, “Stakes were high for whatever Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart  released to follow their first massive and ubiquitous hit, and ‘Kanye’ holds up,”Billboard described it as “an unexpectedly inspirational ode to following your own path and living life on your own tours,” and Yahoo! News said, “At the heart of the release is a message that encourages fans to take control of self-identity.”

As soon as “Kanye” dropped, the song became the “Most Viral Track” on Spotify in the United States and worldwide.

Recently, THE CHAINSMOKERS launched their live radio show on SiriusXM’s Electric Area—"Nice Hair with THE CHAINSMOKERS". The show is unlike anything else on the air. The guys speak candidly on the lifestyle of touring international EDM superstars, allowing listeners a vignette behind the curtain. Nothing is held back, and their wild antics and unpredictable personalities are on full display!

It’s been a landmark year for THE CHAINSMOKERS. MTV recently crowned the group an “Artist to Watch”. “#SELFIE” was officially certified platinum by the RIAA for digital sales in excess of 1,000,000. The song also soared to #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart within merely five weeks and reached the Top 5 on iTunes in over 43 countries. “#SELFIE” is the #6 video on YouTube's "Top Music Videos of 2014". Furthermore, it garnered a nomination for "Choice EDM Song" at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards and the guys have been receiving tremendous support for DJ Mag's "Top 100 DJs" [vote here!]

THE CHAINSMOKERS puff out a distinct hybrid of indie, progressive house, and pop music that proves utterly infectious and intoxicating. It's unlike anything out there, and the world is taking notice in a big way. Already, the pair has been supported by Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, Pete Tong, Afrojack, Tiësto, W&W, and more, as well as receiving shout outs from the likes of Rolling Stone. In addition, they've been tapped for remixes by everybody from Phoenix, Ellie Goulding, and The Wanted to The Killers and Icona Pop. Their remixes continually shoot to #1 on the HypeM—with 24 in total topping the chart. In addition, their original songs always land on Beatport's top charts, solidifying their status as contenders in the genre. The duo is represented by Adam Alpert.  DIM MAK/REPUBLIC RECORDS is excited for what's to come from this American dream team.

Moksha Medicine to release debut single Spindle Thief

Moksha Medicine debut single Spindle Thief

Moksha Medicine to release debut single Spindle Thief

Taking their name from Aldous Huxley's writings on visionary experiences, Moksha Medicine may just be one of London's most exciting new acts right now. With influences coming from a sprawling range of genres such as psychadelia, surf-punk and drone, the band have built up a wild reputation for their enigmatic and chaotic live shows, making them firm favourites of legendary left-of-centre promoters Bad Vibrations. 

After releasing their debut EP 'Moksha' in early January, Moksha Medicine are now set to release their first official single 'Spindle Thief' on September 15th. Describing their sound as “Spacemen 3 injected with Grace Slick and Omar Khorshid”, 'Spindle Thief' begins with an Eastern style riff, before launching into an adrenaline-fuelled wall of sound complimented by bass lines reminiscent of Kim Deal-era Pixies.

One of the most refreshingly different tracks of the year, 'Spindle Thief' serves as a perfect introduction to a band primed to break out of the underground. The new single will be released on September 15th 2014, with a single launch show at the Shacklewell Arms on September 10th.


LIVE DATES
Sept 10 - LONDON - Shacklewell Arms (single launch show)
Sept 29 - LONDON - Shacklewell Arms (w/ Dark Horses)
Nov 08 - LONDON - The Water Rats (w/ Cult of Dom Keller and Helicon)
