EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE: Cry To The Blind – “Broken Wings”
Upstate New York’s up-and-coming rockers Cry To The Blind has shared a video for their amazing cover of 1980s classic track “Broken Wings.” Originally made popular by Mr. Mister, Cry To The Blind make their song their own by putting a killer metallic sheen on the song which is much better than a straight cover would be. “Broken Wings” follows their previous cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” – which was given a similar treatment. The rising band has performed with dozens of national acts, including Alice in Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, A Day to Remember, Chevelle, Bullet For My Valentine, Sevendust, In This Moment, Alter Bridge, and many more. You can watch the video below and pre-save or buy the track as well right now! Continue reading

Rocking horse shit. That’s about the only thing as rare as a band nailing aesthetic, mystique, live shows, credibility, a groundswell of genuine interest, a devoted fanbase and SONGS on their debut album. Rocking horse shit. And Creeper’s Eternity, In Your Arms (Roadrunner).Continue reading
Wrecking Ball: Day 1- The Masquerade, Atlanta, GA
With destination concert events being the next big thing, every city is trying to come up with an even to put them on the map. Atlanta has pulled off an impressive start with the first annual Wrecking Ball at the venerable Masquerade venue. Judging by the success with the lineup and the response from the crowd, we have every reason to believe this fest will be a round for years to come. Even though if you Google the fests name, you still get that silly girl Miley and her video, the fest unironically had their own wrecking ball too, with people doing the Miley pose in jest. And the bands on day one wrecked the stage and had fans from all over wrecking their bodies in the Atlanta summer heat to the mostly punk rock extravaganza. Descendents may be long time veterans of the scene, but they performed with more energy than most bands half their age. Judge brought the old-school beatdown sensability. The heady minds in Failure were an anomaly on the bill, but a welcome one that added to the diversity of it. Their new album The Heart Is A Monster (InResidence) is killer. Back to the punk side of things Modern Life is War, The Get Up Kids, TheMovieLife, SamIAm, and Title Fight all brought it big time. Pianos Become The Teeth is another band that had their own crowd on hand for this show. The outdoor stage added a real specialness to this event, and those bands seemed to really relish the true fest feels. Shot here for Ghost Cult by Boston Chuck Photography, day one of Wrecking Ball more than set the tone for the rest of the weekend. Day 2 coverage coming soon!
