Transcend Music is pleased to announce the signing of fresh faced young rockers from Southend, Crash Mansion!
The lads spent their early teenage years crammed in a hot, sweaty rehearsal room jamming out Avenged Sevenfold, Guns n’ Roses and My Chemical Romance covers, while formulating plans for their own take on the genre. The result is a heady mix of natural talent, raw energy, enthusiasm and a fistful of super catchy infectious rock n' roll tunes with stadium bothering potential!
They recorded their debut EP in 2012 with Martyn ‘Ginge’ Ford at the renowned Nott-in Pill Studios (home to Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, Trivium etc) and quickly racked up shows with LA Guns, Fearless Vampire Killers and The Dead Lay Waiting, proving to be every bit as potent on stage as the recordings promised.
Rob Ferguson of Transcend Music said of the signing
"I've had my eye on Crash Mansion for a couple of years watching them develop and offering advice where appropriate. They are a really exciting young band who are not only passionate and hungry for success but genuinely possess all the weapons in their armoury to achieve great things. I'm really looking forward to being part of that journey."
Guitarist Sam Scarlett from Crash Mansion commented
"We are all buzzing about working with Rob and the rest of the team at Transcend Music, we feel it's the right home for us, it's great to see how they bring fresh talent through and help bands grow. We're honoured to be sitting on a roster with cool bands like Heights, IDivide, Malefice, Sacred Mother Tongue and The Dirty Youth etc."
The band has signed to Transcend Music for management and release, with a first single and video planned for summer 2013. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for Sam, Kidd, Pagey, Dan and Doogs as they take their explosive live show on the road in the UK and Europe.
Incendia Management is pleased to announce that Shattered Skies will be over from Ireland playing their first London show, supporting The Algorithm (Basick Records, recently supported Enter Shikari, and confirmed for Download Festival 2013).

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club give away free 'Let The Day Begin' EP + share new track 'Returning', plus new album and tour details
American garage rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are giving away their ‘Let The Day Begin’ EP for free to fans over on their official site: http://blackrebelmotorcycleclub.com/letthedaybegin/
The EP features three tracks, the studio version of the new single ‘Let The Day Begin’, a live verstion taken from Troubadour and their album cut ‘Returning’, the latter's lyric video can be streamed here:
The band are also inviting their fans to use the #letthedaybegin, #brmc, #blackrebelmotorcycleclub tags on their Instagram photos, to share what "Let The Day Begin" means to them. Photos will be posted on the band’s website.
The band are also gearing up to release their next highly anticipated release "Specter At The Feast", this will be the band’s sixth studio album and is being set for release through Abstract Dragon Records on the 18th March this year.
The band recorded the majority of their upcoming album ‘Specter At The Feast’ at Dave Grohl’s studio in LA on the same console that is featured in Grohl’s upcoming ‘Sound City: The Movie’ documentary (also the same board they recorded their debut album on). Additional recording was done in Joshua Tree, CA at the infamous Rancho De La Luna Studio before they ventured to Robert Been’s hometown of Santa Cruz, CA to record the rest of the album.
“This record took a long time to pull together,” explains Robert. “I think we all reached the breaking point after our last tour and needed to step back for a bit. These songs brought us back to life and gave us a second chance. I've never been more excited to play an album live before, these songs were born to be loud"
Furthermore the band will embark on a March tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland, support will come from The Big Pink (except the Leeds date, sad to say)
