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.
On a night with a sensational crowd present amassing to well over 100+, three bands took to the stage to deliver an almighty blast of rock music, Clout, Black Belles and The Horrors all graced the stage.
Clout, a local quintet playing a straight chemical mix of orchestrated blues rock with jazz thrown in. At times the band seemed to know what they were doing, but this changed from second to second; amazingly they are one of those bands hard to genre-tag, experimental rock is perhaps the closest you can get. They managed to hold a captivating performance of which seems to be marred by the visual look of interaction - just mere playing, no action, just playing. Sadly the audio was not perfect as the jazz player seemed non existant at times, he was playing but no sound was emitting, perhaps the metal lost it's musical conductor. However it was an interesting sight to see the musicians change instruments - jazz to keyboards, drummer to guitars etc. The sound however is nothing new, but with a pinch of divergence here and there, the band without a doubt has conjured up a strangely bizarre sound. However for a relatively short set, the quintet have a great sound, organisation, composure and stage presence, but seem to lack that total panache, but are not far from reaching it .
< Olivia Jean clawing her nails into the gloomy Southend atmosphere.
The all women quartet from Nashville, Tennessee utilised a Hard Rock / Heavy Metal / Goth Rock sound, by bringing out the best in rock with a sensational blend of 'bar rock' and true southern state class and rickety rock-n-roll. So much for tornado alley not predicting this storm to be sent across the Atlantic Ocean. In fact the continual shedding of distortion became powerful enough to blow holes in the ceiling. Ironically, when four female musicians came out to shake the foundations of Southend Chinnerys, the predicted 'male-army-en-mass' soon congregated, out-crowding any football league derby attendance, Southend United must be envious. Let alone the dress code being imperfectly smart and to-the-point 'on official business'; even the music aided as an official clarification that the quartet are not to be messed with, since when did Hayley Williams quadruplicate into goths?

< No one told The Horrors that heaven was behind them.
< Faris Badwan could not believe his eyes seeing someone down 4 shots of Jack Daniels at once.
Full of gusto and rhythmic composition, the headlining Southend-based experimental, space, goth, every-subgenre of rock band The Horrors delivered a total ecliptic version of pure class with a light-coveted display of fuel-injected red and white light - correlating the potential of embedding English rock in the pits of experimental audibility and emphatically shedding out the dark and D.I.Y. sound of 'horroresque' stature. Wihout a question one of the finest modern rock bands England has ever produced in the past five years. A sensational live performance on the night, making the albums an appetiser in their menu of rock sounds, one would pin their performance to the dessert section, a delicious slice of rock cake. Honing in on their native town, The Horrors made no errors as they show off an array of atoned pedigree and the ability in not failing to disappoint, even Jimi Hendrix would salute this lot. Revitalising the crowd into complete psychedelia, The Horrors are without any compromise and take no substitutes without delivering what is perceived to be the most captivating gig of-yet-to-be 2012 .
Italian hard rockers Voodoo Highway are proud to announce that the cover artwork of their new album currently being recorded, will be edited and created by renowned artist Storm Thorgerson.
Storm Thorgerson is most known for being the key art of the British graphic art group “Hipgnosis”, and for being the creator of one of the most known album covers of all time in the shape of Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon”.
Among his works may be included the covers of numerous artists globally known such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Audioslave, The Muse, Biffy Clyro, The Cranberries, Bruce Dickinson, Dream Theater, Europe, Helloween, Megadeth, Offspring, Rival Sons and many more.
_US rockers Rival Sons have been confirmed as the main support act for Guns 'N' Roses for two shows in Europe this summer.
Rival Sons will be playing with GNR at the Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands on June 4th, and then at the Warsteiner Hockey Park in Mönchengladbach, Germany on June 8th.
Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday was very excited:
"What a great, great opportunity to get these shows supporting Guns N' Roses! Germany has been great to us, and this will only help us reach out to so many more people over there. As far as Guns goes... I remember the first time those guys were ever on MTV, me and my best mate were watching. A total shock to the system, and to me and my friends' lives. We were really young little dudes, but we already loved our rock 'n' roll, and Guns just reeked of reality and grit... I mean they were literally very dirty. And we LOVED it. They ushered in a lot more 'real' and dirtiness to a scene that had become way too fruity-pants. As a wee guitar-playing lad, I couldn't get enough of Appetite For Destruction and Lies. Ready to see and hear some of those first tunes played live!"
Tickets for the show at The Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands can be purchased from Live Nation here
