King King, who have been going from strength to strength in recent years, release their fifth studio album “Maverick” on Friday 16th October 2020 via Channel 9 Music – King King’s new independent label. The 10-track album, released on CD, vinyl and various bundles, is available for pre-order from

The first single ‘I Will Not Fall’, which has been A-listed on Planet Rock, and will be available as an instant grat track with all pre-orders, plus exclusive content including track by track commentary by Alan Nimmo.

The album was engineered and mixed by Liam McCluskey at Morsecode Studios in Glasgow.

INCOMING!  Meteora.    After we finished writing songs for our second album, we thought squeezing in one more track as a bonus was possible with the time we had left. ’Tragedy of Delusion’ was 10 songs long already, so we weren’t really forced to do it, we just had been toying with the idea of doing a cover for quite some time, and this seemed to be the ideal time. We threw music at eachother in our facebook group, had a few really strong contenders, but in the end Numb won.

With the name Meteora we were thought to be a Linkin Park tribute a few times, especially in the beginning, so it was just fitting to do a song of theirs from their second album, ’Meteora’. When giving the name we didn’t have that record in mind to be honest, but the Meteora temples in Greece. Máté was studying architecture at university, and he presented this idea for us some weeks before our first live show. By now it grew on us, and it represents a quiet place above everything, where you can draw back to, and calmly observ the world beneath.

We were planning to do a different kind of video for this song, but along with the concerts these ideas were made impossible aswell. We didn’t want to keep people hanging though for an undefinite amount of time, so we joined the ’lockdown video movement’. We really hope that people will be open minded about the music, and like the minimalist approach of the video.

French Alternative-Rock Revenants PERSEIDE streamed new album 'The Only Thing' for full // Out now on CD & Digital through all legal platforms.
A couple of days after the official release of their debut full-length album 'The Only Thing', French alternative-metal/rockers from Lyon PERSEIDE just shared the whole record for free streaming on YouTube.
For reminder, 'The Only Thing', is still available on CD & Digital trough Bandcamp and the  main legal platforms.
PERSEIDE delivers a modern metal ranging from pop to metalcore, with heavy rhythms and old school guitars, catchy choruses, all tinged with electro synths and intense vocals…”

...For the record...

PERSEIDE was born from four childhood friends who decided to form a rock band in 2001, as they were just teenagers. Ten years later, they were crossing the frontiers to share their music widely.

After two EP released, a signing to OrageRock label, thousands of gigs across France, Europe and even in the USA, with bands like Soilwork, Betraying The Martyrs, Cancer Bats, We Butter The Bread With Butter, Protest The Hero… The story is still being written today.

In 2018, they decided to go into the studio again to record their debut album, which is going to be released early 2020.

PERSEIDE is still there, stronger than ever and ready to take these four eternal teenagers as far as possible…
For fans of Avenged Sevenfold, Enter Shikari, In Flames, The Used...

INCOMING! MARMALADE KNIVES released their debut LP, Amnesia via Italian label Electric Valley Records. Came on on April 24th, the album is available on vinyl and digital formats. 
Marmalade Knives was formed in the mountains of Santa Cruz, CA, as a collaboration between guitarists Clinton Wilkins and Justin Spivey, exploring the depths of outer-limits psychedelia. Wilkins spent several years studying with David First (acclaimed minimalist/microtonal composer and member of cult 70s/80s NYC no-wave legends The Notekillers) and Spivey is a well-regarded collector/historian of original period psychedelic/progressive music, writer at UK psych rag Moof Magazine, and recent songwriting contributor to the underground cult film The Yucca Sisters by Samuel Casebolt.
The lineup of the band eventually grew to a full-on 5 member troupe of local freak–rock 'n' rollers, including bassist Mark Robinson, drummer Kyle Herrenkohl (of SF acid-folkers TABERNACLE), and keyboardist Nathan Warrick (of APACHE DROPOUT). In the summer of 2018, they tracked their debut album at Loud House Studio in Santa Cruz, CA, and over the following year, the production and mixing of the album were helmed by Adam Kriney (of THE GOLDEN GRASS/LA OTRACINA).
Kriney says of the process: “I used a very ‘Teo Macero’ style approach to the arranging, editing, and mixing of the material the band first tracked at their basic album sessions. And much in the same way that Macero [Miles Davis' long-time producer] approached the editing of material from In A Silent Way up through Get Up With It, I generated new and refined song forms out of those initial recording sessions, reimagining the music to crystallize its vision. We then built further upon those ideas with remote recording/mixing sessions across Santa Cruz, New York City, and Asheville, NC, for over a year until the musical narrative from those sessions was complete and the album was finished.”

Amnesia is a sprawling tapestry of classically inspired progressive psychedelia. A voyage
through a mythical cosmic rock universe, layered with dense squalls of abstract sound collage and fields of freeform freakouts, all coloured with old-world folk melodies/modalities and pulsing with a funky rhythm section!
