Red Fang Launch A New Single and App Activated by Headbanging!

Red Fang are stoner rock legends and technical innovators when it comes to viral marketing. The band has released a new single ‘Antidote’ through their own mobile phone app. Written and directed by Wieden+Kennedy creative Ansel Wallenfang. It is the world’s first music video game you have to headbang to play! The mid ’90s–style app, titled Red Fang: Headbang, is available globally for both Android and iOS using either a smartphone or tablet. A tutorial at the beginning teaches users how to appropriately headbang (hint, move your head with your hand/phone). If the user stops headbanging, Red Fang dies. The app features three alternate endings. Download the app, watch the video and a trailer for it below! Continue reading

Druids – Monument

When Iowan trio Druids‘ EP Spirit Compass (Self-release) hit my ears sixteen months ago, I was staggered by the apparent ease with which the bandmelded the darkness of Sabbath and the violence of Mastodon with the joyous, Summery Grunge of Blind Melon.

Psycho Las Vegas 2018: Live From Hard Rock Hotel And Casino

Psycho Las Vegas has grown and evolved over the years and has shaken off any comparisons to niche European fests and your traditional US fest, itself having no close comparisons, and being its own beast. Having everything under one roof including your stay can lead to late and debaucherous nights for some, packed and planned diverse schedules for the devout, a little compromise of both for others, but an all around good time for all. For a journalist working the fest, it goes by in a blur but you still experience having those stand out moments as well as highlights of your own. Continue reading

Welcome To Rockville 2018 Live At Metropolitan Park

 

What happens when you take a tired musician and send him to Welcome to Rockville? You AMP him beyond belief, yes pun intended.

Shouts of joy and chants from all over, spurred on by local rock hype group “The Rockvillans”, were just the tip of what I was about to experience.
