2013 has proven to be a successful year for the youthful Southend rockers Crash Mansion, having snapped up a deal with Transcend Music, released their latest EP "Live For Something" as well as gracing the Jägermeister Acoustic Stage at Download. Furthermore as the lads look forward to supporting Stormbringer (https://www.facebook.com/events/239565636200946/?source=1) there is a real buzzing sense amongst the Essex music scene in that they are sure to deliver another sensational year, as 2014 beckons the young lads look to progress on amendments (Phil Maher had replaced Adam Dougan) and yet we could see them potentially begin the task of wielding their first album, watch this space.....
Already taking Israel by storm, this unsigned Israel-based sextet are sure to make their sound well and truly heard across the world in 2014. Considered to be a more melodic and more powerful form of Evanescence, EarlyRise unleashed their debut album 2 years ago and for sure some people will think that that they are in overtime in regards to delivering their second album, therefore 2014 beckons to be the year this lusciously-sounding lot deliver that one song that will push them forward. 2013 proved to be a good year for the six-piece especially with their cover of Korn's 'Narcissistic Cannibal' reaching 1 million views on YouTube. Of course Israel is not generally well acknowledged on the rock map, so this is the time for EarlyRise to change that.
Whipping together genres that stand so far apart is never easy, but time and time again a band goes the extra mile and does it spot on. Poised to make 2014 a big year for themselves is four-piece Sixtyfours whose infectious mix of rock, hip-hop and euro-dance is sublime to say the least. Their 2013 single 'All On You' featuring also the song 'My Sound' proved to be a hit amongst the media critics and as they plan their next musical assault, Sixtyfours could easily find themselves wound up at either Reading, Download or Leeds festival next year, they are that ready. Pumping out the rock 'n' rave is definitely on their plans, could they be the answer to the saturating rock scene?

Don't Tell Me It's Over
When You Fucked Grandpa
By GMA's Afghanistan correspondent Abdul Basir Shakeri
"From the underground up to the street’s concerts"
You were hearing the sounds of music from the seams between the walls in Herat in 2005. Yeah! It was ANTz who are the first Blues Rock band and one of the real underground bands in Afghanistan.
Antz, are a group of musicians who were recording their music and vocals inside their car and a small studio inside in a house in Herat, they started out by deciding to establish a band in order to play new music for the new generation. They are Antz, because they are hard-workers, honest and always doing the heavy stuff like the real ants..
Antz removed their skins like snakes twice from 2005 and up to 2013, some changes are good but as Masoud Hassanzada (one of the band's founders, song write and guitarist) states: "I discovered my love of art during the Taliban rule, when music was forbidden" he confesses. His texts deal with issues like dreams and problems facing the Afghan youth. "There is a whole generation that has never known peace".
"Minority Report" the first album by Antz with 8 tracks was released in 2007. It was called "Minority Report" because the album is spoken from the viewpoint of a minority, it talks about the socio-political situation in Afghanistan. It means most of the songs were critical and the content was based around social problems such as war, corruption, elections, social chaos, lack of memories, history, foreign troops, the Taliban, mullahs, liberals and assorted bribery, etc.
Shekib Mosadiq is the vocalist and founder of the band alongside Masoud Hassanzada. The reception of releasing the album in the first few days was unprecedented. We could make about $300 USD by CD from our online eBay store per week and in all local radios our songs were aired, meaning we became known and famous amongst the Persian-Iranian singers Hassanzada said.
Performing in different Cafés, festivals, events and thrice at the Sound Central Festival in Afghanistan is just a part of their achievements, but the latest performance was at Orange Café, a street concert for public people which was stopped by police.
Antz are still playing, performing and working on a new album "Militarism" with 9 tracks poised to be on it, the album will be released in around 2 months time.
The music is very diverse and different on this album, like some of the tracks are quite rocky, some more blues-orientated and a few others are "Gypsy Blues". In terms of content, the lyrics are more radical than the first album. In terms of regulation, it will be unprecedented in the history of country music. This album has a couple of other musical instruments (an accordion for example) which were added. This album is more critical in terms of content viewing and features a more spirited critique of the war in Afghanistan and the failure of Western democratization in Afghanistan. Simply put the atmosphere of the songs are totally satirical.
Following up the re-release of the band’s first EP ‘Between Order And Model’ through BoySetsFire’s End Hits Records, Funeral For A Friend have announced a handful of UK dates in April next year with support from BoySetsFire. As Matthew from FFAF explains –“It's taken so many years but to finally say that we're going on tour with BoySetsFire again puts a huge smile on my face. I have loved this band through every record they've released and feel honored that I can call them dear friends. They are a huge musical/lifestyle inspiration and getting to see them tear it up is going to be incredible!”
Josh from BoySetsFire adds "I cannot believe how excited I am about this tour. Funeral For A Friend and BoySetsFire? I would go to this show, I would buy a ticket. Seriously though, we are very excited about touring with our friends in Funeral For A Friend. It will be one for the ages. Please come and join us."
These dates will see Funeral For A Friend play their album ‘Hours’ in full. Tickets will be on sale from Friday 25th October at 9am.

Funeral For A Friend are set to reissue a re-mastered, remixed and expanded version of seminal first EP ‘Between Order And Model’ through End Hits Records / Mighty Atom on 18th November.

The newly remixed and re-mastered four original songs were enhanced with three rare / unreleased tracks from the same recording session and live versions recorded by the current line-up. A 12 page booklet features never before seen pictures from the bands archives and liner notes from singer Matt Davies, Josh Latshaw (Boysetsfire) and Oli Sykes (Bring Me The Horizon). ‘Between Order And Model’ will be available as Digi-Pack CD and for the first time ever on vinyl (limited to 1000 colored copies).

MTV has added the latest video from Phoenix, AZ theatrical rockers Farewell, My Love. To check out “Mirror, Mirror” visit: http://www.mtv.com/videos/farewell-my-love/963493/mirror-mirror.jhtml.
The band recently sat down for a series of video interviews to discuss the songs that make up their new LP, "Gold Tattoos". In the first clip, front man Ryan Howell discusses the inspiration behind the epic lead track, “Afraid of the Dark” here.
Watch for more clips in the weeks ahead!
Farewell My Love’s "Gold Tattoos" is out now on Standby Records and to order Gold Tattoos on iTunes click here:
The conceptual artistry and theatricality of My Chemical Romance, the reckless danger and skillful musicianship of Avenged Sevenfold, the dark mystique and anthem-inducing sing-alongs of AFI and the brash experimentalism and attitude of 30 Seconds to Mars are all components that have a home in the Farewell, My Love manuscript. With forceful determination and wonderfully soaring grandiosity, Farewell, My Love put a unique spin on theatrical hard rock with utmost dedication.
Ryan Howell’s intense and diverse vocals sit atop the heavy, precise and melodic guitar work of Röbby Creasey and Logan Thayer, all ably backed by the percussive but tasteful rhythm section of bassist Charlee Conley and drummer Chad Kowal. Additional instrumentation, including string arrangements and bells, bolster the band’s guitar-driven rock, adding to the artistic atmosphere on display throughout.
“Fans can expect a very theatrical, diverse and deep record,” promises Creasey. “Each of us put our hearts into this and we can not wait to see everyone’s reactions,” adds Kowal.
Farewell, My Love is currently out on the Bad Blood Tour with Blood on the Dance Floor. See dates at the top.

Swedish fuzz rockers Truckfighters are to unleash limited edition vinyl EP via Last Hurrah Records; preorders now available
BAND FICTION: Truckfighters were employed to wrestle with a Skania long-haulage truck and trailer
Treading the trenches of heaviness somewhere between Fu Manchu and Queens Of The Stone Age, to hear Truckfighters is to hear the sounds of the desert; it's in their wide open expanses, grand open grooves and dust-caked metal riffs. You can hear progression and imagination; a band bred on the California badlands, on sprawling vistas and parched wilderness. The dynamic trio however hail from Örebro. Unafraid to plough their own furrow, Truckfighters have forged ahead and spend months on the road touring the world. Closing in on four-hundred gigs across four continents (Europe, Australia, and North and South America), being in front of crowds, sweat-sodden and crazed is where they are happiest. It's why a Truckfighters show is such a wild, free-form, charged affair.
The band's forthcoming new full-length is slated for release next year and includes the track "The Chairman," hence "The Chairman Special Edition" EP. Delivering over thirty minutes of pure power fuzz, the EP features the title track plus three live tunes -- "Desert Cruiser," "Monte Gangano," and "Traffic" -- all recorded while on tour in Australia. Presented at 45 RPM for best sound quality on a multi-colored vinyl 12-inch, "The Chairman Special Edition" EP comes in a full-color sleeve and jacket limited to 500 copies worldwide and only available from Last Hurrah Records. The jacket cover artwork has spot UV gloss, spot PMS, and silver metallic ink designed by artist Lindsey Kuhn and comes in two different vinyl colors: Desert Sunset and Desert Sunrise, each a mix of opaque and translucent colors (250 of each color).
Preorders are now available for the Truckfighters "The Chairman Special Edition" EP courtesy of Last Hurrah Records at THIS LOCATION where you can also check out a video for the title track!

"one of the most important bands of the past 20 years, a rare example of longevity and integrity" - Ventura County Reporter
New Found Glory releases their live album, "Kill It Live", today on Violently Happy / Bridge Nine Records. Two sold-out shows in Southern California¹s Chain Reaction are responsible for the incredible compilation of live energy captured on this 17-track record, which also features 3 bonus studio tracks. The video for "Connect the Dots", New Found Glory¹s new single from Kill It Live, was premiered last week on mtvU and Buzzworthy - check it out here. Directed by John Francis Conway III, New Found Glory shows off their skills on the football field, while bringing their trademark pop-punk sound.
Established in 1997, New Found Glory has been a force in the punk rock scene since their inception. From their debut "Nothing Gold Can Stay" in 1999 all the way to 2011's "Radiosurgery" (with eight releases in between, 3 gold albums and 4 consecutive Billboard Top 20 albums), New Found Glory have transcended trends and gimmicks by writing songs from the heart that listeners of all ages can relate to.

Missouri punks Radkey flew into the UK to perform “Out Here In My Head” on Jools Holland’s Later show this week alongside a variety of different artists from Franz Ferdinand, Goldfrapp, James Blake to Chas and Dave. As you can probably imagine, the trio enjoyed every minute of such an honorable moment and played their trademark, energetic hardcore live in front of an audience of one million people across the UK with ease.
“Playing the Later show was a blast,” says bassist / vocalist Isaiah Radke. “We didn’t let people know we were going to jam after the song so Jools was staring at us like what the fuck is happening?! So I think we made a mark. It was awesome!”
