Welcome to Jonestown’s ‘For Punk’s Sake’ is the Thrash we all Need

Welcome to Jonestown Delivers Classic Punk Rock with a Side of Heart with Their New Album #ForPunksSake, available through all streaming services on June 7th

They always say “the third time’s the charm,” right? Well, that seems to work for the local Chicago music scene with a ton of bands announcing new music this summer. The way it typically goes with a fresh, potentially band on the horizon of releasing their 1st album, fans group together to show their support.  

Then there is the 2nd album which is referred to as the “sophomore slump”.  A lot of musicians try to avoid this like the plague. Either your 2nd album shows growth with your music or you follow along the same path.  Whatever happens, you will have critics.

If you survived the slump, you are now on your 3rd endeavor and the world is your oyster…  Well, maybe… The #punkrockboys from the Windy City of Chicago Welcome to Jonestown are ready to kick local music in the ass in the nicest way possible.  Their new album #ForPunksSake is classic punk with a side of honestly, hurt, romance, comedy, and the thrash we all need in our lives. (Yes, we need all of this… It is called being human…)

Let’s start off with the leadoff single “100 Bullets…”  Jeremy (singer, lead guitar) seems to take a few life lessons he puts it into perspective.  “100 Bullets” sounds like one hell of a night of partying with friends and that potential special someone turns out to be yet another mistake.  With anyone, you make hundreds of memories yet when it all comes crashing down; it hits you. You think about all the time spent now it just seems wasted.  With a catchy guitar riff reminiscent of Blink 182, Welcome to Jonestown grabs you with a catchy hook and a great lyric video.

There is something seriously awesome about the song “Sunspots,” track #8 off of #ForPunksSake. Maybe it is the haunting melody of the guitar. Perhaps it’s the headstrong bass lines provided by Matt who makes you want to dance and mosh at the same time.  It could be that it’s a traditional punk rock song with some influence from Bad Religion. Burnard kicks ass as he pounds the drums with speed, unlike any other.

Ever find yourself needing to take a step back and reflect? That is “Cardiac Arrest.” Jeremy takes a chance on a stripped down, acoustic song and doesn’t disappoint.  No drums. No bass. It is just a sad and truthful song pouring out one’s heart.

Other songs to love:  

“Swell Up and Die…”  (Lovely…)

“Another Shitty Song…”  (Again…. Lovely….)

“Half of Anything…..”

So, is the third time the charm? Yes. Welcome to Jonestown shows a lot of growth while staying true to what they are about: the catchy lyrics, smooth yet playful bass lines and hard hitting drums that make them a force in the punk rock world.  Jeremy, Matt, and Burnard bring their special sauce to #ForPunksSake, Make sure you give it a listen on June 7th and come out to their LP Release Party June 14th at LiveWire Lounge with Conway, OverClocked and Social Que (details here).  

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY RELEASE “SPOKE IN THE WHEEL” MUSIC VIDEO

March 14, 2019 — Black Label Society have released a new music video today for their song “Spoke In The Wheel” from their upcoming LP due out this spring. Directed by long-time director and collaborator Justin Reich, this is the first music video we’ve seen from the band since ”Trampled Down Below” was released last year from the Grimmest Hits LP.

Black Label Society will release Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19 on May 17, 2019, via Entertainment One (eOne). “Spoke In The Wheel” is available as an iTunes instant gratification track, meaning fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive that single as an instant download. “Spoke In The Wheel” is available on all streaming services today.  Pre-order bundles including teeshirts, posters, vinyl, and even a turntable are available now. Click here for more.

Thanks to a new arrangement with record label Entertainment One (eOne), the band’s back catalog is now all in one place, uniting the band’s earlier work with their more recent output. The “re-blended” version of their classic debut is resurrected bigger than ever without sacrificing its familiar kick. Plus, there are two bonus cuts: a full band/piano version of “Spoke in the Wheel” and an acoustic take on “Black Pearl.”

Black Label Society has also announced their “20 Years of Sonic Brewtality Tour,” a brand-new batch of 2019 North American tour dates in conjunction with the new release. The band will play two shows in each market – the first night will feature Sonic Brew played in its entirety, while the second night will see the band play a set of greatest hits.

Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19  is nothing like the infamously awful, failed experiment of New Coke. This is the original formula, like Coke Classic, but spiked with Viagra, the Captain America super soldier serum, and triple the caffeine. It’s less of a floor to ceiling remodel than it is a fresh coat of paint, in preparation for another crazy house party. Zakk Wylde and crew were careful not to mess with the magic captured on the long lost two-inch tape. Instead, they blessed the master with some note-for-note enhancement, spicing up /Sonic Brew/ with a perfected recipe.  “I don’t want to hear Led Zeppelin II redone, with the band just replaying the whole record,” notes the charismatic frontman and gregarious guitar icon. “The performances and everything is a snapshot in time. We just added on top of what was already there on the original recordings. It’s like we went in and did surgery on this thing. We took the original CD master and added things that made it stronger.” 

The Black Label Society studio discography is like an instruction manual on how to expertly craft heartfelt, no holds barred, heavy metal infused American hard rock. “’Sonic Brew’ was the beginning. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years,” Zakk marvels.  Wylde’s powerful pipes, mayhem-inducing charisma, mischievous humor, and instantly recognizable shredding have made him a beloved figure to rock audiences the world over. One part invading-horde, one part traveling carnival party, Black Label Society continues to engage and inspire, powered by caffeine and cacophony.

After the Message’s Self Titled Album is About Facing Your Inner Demons

If every one of my favorite bands from high school got together and had a music baby, it would be After The Message. Their self-titled EP is a six-song journey through loss, heartbreak, and redemption. If you have ever been in love, then get ready to hold on for an emotional roller coaster.

The release kicks off with a ninety-second intro tune titled “Welcome To.” “Welcome To”  teases your ears with a one channel riff that explodes into a heart-racing build up that is sure to get you pumped for what comes next. If I would choose any lyric to define the feel of After the Message’s EP, let it be this line from the opening track; “I won’t be the only reason for this love to stay”. This line reflects the content of what the vocalist is trying to portray throughout the album from his own viewpoint of loss.

The EP flows smoothly into “Where I Stand”. A perfect second song to get your body moving with the beat. The lyrical content helps you face the reality that things may be falling apart. Energy builds through this song, helping you feel the pain in vocalist Nick’s powerful words.

Do you know those songs that are perfect for lying in bed, with your headphones cranked up high? The lyrical content flows through your body with the pleasure of knowing someone else understands how you’re feeling. Well, the third song on After The Message is just that. “To Whom it May Concern” is about facing our demons and our reality head-on, which is never an easy feat.

The fourth song on After The Message has an almost hypnotic opening that turns into the catchiest riff on the release. “Another Shot” brings about that ecstatic feeling of hope that there might be another chance. You can hear the positivity energy coming through the vocals and upbeat instrumentals.

And now, the heartbreak song we all needed to bring forth the emotions we all feel after losing a lover. The guitar riff on “Sequential Vision” builds into a hook that captures the heavy emotions that the vocals illustrate. It’s a song everyone who has lost a loved one can connect with.

Speakers Underground ” is another song that has me continuously bopping my head. Heavy rock riffs lift the energy of this song and tie the whole EP together. It’s a song about finding your feet underneath you again after being lost in your emotions.

The album leaves you with a positive outlook for the future, and I for one am looking forward to what the future holds for After the Message. Whether you are going through a tough heartbreak at this time or not, you will not be disappointed with After The Message. Listen to After The Message’s debut self-titled release a listen on streaming platforms starting on March 15th.

Eyes of the Living’s War on Dead: More Dead Feels Like A Ritual Sacrifice

War on the Dead: More Dead from Eyes of the Living kicks off with “Count the Days,” a thrasher of a heavy metal song, complete with the dark, apocalyptic lyrics, and deep, technical instrumental you want from horror-core music. The guitar riffs throughout the song give you an excellent sense of what the rest of the album has in store.    

“Run for Your Life” explores the theme of being chased by a murderer, or maybe a True-Detective-style crew of murderers. The lyrics in the chorus enforce the chaotic feeling that I assume is what it must genuinely feel like to be fleeing to safety. Once again, Mike Straiton’s guitar riffs dominate the song, turning it into a ballad of epic purportions.  

“Chemical Bath” starts out with a banger of a drum riff that perfectly showcases Cliff Fritts’s tehcnical prowess on the skins. The intro pops off with a fast and heavy punk/metal sound that goes into a badass chorus and middle eight (or in this case, more like middle 16), then back into it for the second half of the breakdown and remainder of the song.

The intro to “I Am Alone” adds a synthesized element that bursts into a chant-like song that almost feels like a ritual sacrifice. Another chaotic song, “I Am Alone gives the sense of loneliness that incipient doom might cause. Perhaps this is what’s it’s like to be a mental patient (note: as I wrote that last sentence, the song ended with what sounded like an alarm and someone running down the hall in an empty psych ward).

“Dawn” offers a reprieve from the fast heavy metal in the form of an acoustic song. Tim Swisher and Chris Moore’s voices really shine through on this song. Dawn is a lot calmer than the rest of the album, even when the electric instruments and drums kick in. The song is a little more melodic than the rest of the album but doesn’t lose any of the intensity the rest of the album cultivates.

For fans of in-your-face, screaming metal with impressive and catchy technical elements and a true dedication to the spirit of horror-core, War on Dead – More Dead is definitely an album you will want to put into rotation. Check out the video for Infected below. War on Dead – More Dead from Eyes of the Living is available Friday, March 15th where you stream your music!


Witch-Heart from Arcane Ritual Burrows Inside Your Ears

The hypnotically melodic, gothic sound of the title track “Witch-Heart” is the perfect opening track for Arcane Ritual’s latest release, Witch-Heart. The raspy, metal vocals in the bridge contrast the lead vocals and create an unforgettable harmonic juxtaposition that powers you through the rest of the album.

“Shifting Perception” is definitely a song worth rewinding. The way the song is structured reinforces the overall theme of shifting reality throughout the song. I really appreciate the melodic structure of the vocals. Lead singer Teresa Camp has a way of using her own natural harmony to create a truly haunting sound. The riff in the middle eight murders the track with complex notes and classic tones.

The opening riff in “Elemental Flames” would fit in perfectly as the soundtrack of a horror movie where the main character is running through a forest to stumble upon a bunch of figures in black cloaks standing in a circle around a fire. The lyric, “I lose my sense of time and space,” definitely helps to support that theme, while the drums, bass and guitar offer a sense of organized chaos that works out beautifully with the rest of the song.

“Make Believe” takes the gothic sound of the album to the next level with a wide variety of dark, technical aspects that add to the sum of a really solid track. The chanting quality of the verse lyrics come off like a melodic rock and roll hymn as they infect your ears and burrow inside. Once again, the vocals come through with a ton of passion in both melody and lyrical content.

The “Long Goodbye” offers a break from the intensity of the rest of the album with slow and clean guitar to go with the almost country-like style in which the lyrics are delivered. This song is a strong ending to the album. It’s different from the rest of the songs but doesn’t distract or take anything away from the overall feeling the album spent the preceding eight tracks cultivating.

I highly recommend listening to Witch-Heart by Arcane Ritual. The whole album is an excellent showcase of the talents of each of the band members. The hard-hitting bass, powerful lyrics, high-tensity drums and familiar yet original guitar riffs all come together to make for an album that will definitely withstand the test of time whether or not you like heavy music.

Witch-Heart is available now through all streaming platforms!

We will make sure to go out with a bang!” The band is thrilled to announce that the legendary singer/songwriter and producer Devin Townsend will serve as direct support performing a full acoustic set. Southern California’s Dance With The Dead and Atlanta mainstays 68’ will open the show.  “This tour is extra special to us and me personally as we’ve not only amazing hand-picked openers to showcase what we think deserves more eyes and ears in ’68 and Dance with the Dead, but we also have the extreme pleasure and privilege to share the stage with Devin Townsend at an exciting phase of his career.” “I am a life long fan, and I genuinely feel that people who appreciate our willingness to experiment and walk that extra mile to be true to our vision and integrity have Mr. Townsend to thank for a lot. It will be a bucket list experience for me, and I hope we get to share it with as many people as possible.”

The 2019 trek across the U.S. will be the first time the band has toured in America since they went out with TRIVIUM on the “The Sin and the Sentence World Tour” last October.

Critics praised the release as well. NEW NOISE MAGAZINE said Avatar Country was“the culmination of the group’s evolution into a singular powerhouse, a trip into the heart of what makes metal so distinctively powerful.”

LOUDWIRE called the opening track “Glory To Our King” sounds like “it could’ve come straight off of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club, a warm and over the top introduction to the rest of the album.” And finally, METAL INJECTION called Avatar Country “a wonderful ride.”
