Hopeless Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Tonight Alive. Additionally, the band has signed to UNFD in Australia and New Zealand. The band has a new song and music video for "World Away," which can be seen on the band's website, here: http://tonightalive.com
The 5-piece band hailing from Sydney, Australia has always been a voice of their generation, and "World Away" is no different. On the new track, vocalist Jenna McDougall says:-
"'World Away' is a continuation of our quest for self understanding and empowerment, but this time through developing a personal relationship with darkness. In a society that conditions us to suppress and shy away from confronting emotions, we wrote an invitation in World Away to shake hands with what scares us most and begin recognizing the opportunity for growth in struggle. Produced by Dave Petrovic (The Other Side, The Edge) we are sharing World Away with our fans as the introduction to the sound of the next chapter of Tonight Alive."
The band will record their new album this summer.
Tonight Alive is composed of vocalist Jenna McDougall, lead guitarist Whakaio Taahi, rhythm guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler and drummer Matt Best. A force on the global music scene, Tonight Alive have released a trio of successful albums with The Other Side (2013) and Limitless (2016) debuting on the Australian Aria Chart at #5 and #6 respectively.
On signing Tonight Alive, Hopeless Records' EVP Business Development and A&R, Eric Tobin, says "We are excited to have Tonight Alive join the family! We have been fans for a long time and look forward to working with them."
UNFD's Head of Recorded Music, Luke Logemann, says "We've been big fans of Tonight Alive as people and as a band for quite some time now, so working with them is a dream come true. Their new music they're writing is beautiful and brilliant, and we can't wait for the world to experience it."

Detroit based rock band Kaleido has announced the release of their debut full-length album, Experience. Due to release May 19th, Experience was recorded at The Pipeyard Studio in Plymouth, MI. The band also revealed the Official Music Video for the second single, "Trouble In Paradise."
"Our album "Experience" captures the duality of life that many will easily relate to - real people, real stories, real emotions. Through the good times, the bad times, the ups and the downs; it's these experiences that make us who we are." - Kaleido
Detroit claims a long line of musical trendsetters. Perhaps there's something in the water, or maybe it's the blue collar, put-up-or-shut-up mentality, but the Motor City has served as fertile ground for musical geniuses ranging from Alice Cooper and Kid Rock to Eminem and Bob Seger.
Kaleido - comprised of Christina Chriss (vocals), Joey Fava (drums), Ronnie Rosolino (rhythm guitar), Cody Morales (bass) and Zach Bolling (lead guitar) - is a fresh, modern day Detroit incarnation of rock n’ roll. Their upcoming 2017 debut full-length album Experience is straight, unadulterated, feel it in your soul rock with flourishes of pop, R&B, punk & funk undertones - and hooks for days.
At the core, Kaleido is reminiscent of the piss-and-vinegar, stadium rock of a young Guns N’ Roses crossed and fused with the lovable, fun and energetic sensibilities of an early No Doubt. Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which quickly gained them notoriety in the Detroit music scene.
Named Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Weekly in both 2013 & 2014, plus having won two Detroit Music Awards in 2015 for "Outstanding Rock/Pop Group" and "Outstanding Rock Recording" for their second independent EP 'Unbreakable', they have since taken the show on the road, lighting up stages on the Van's Warped Tour, Rockstar Uproar Festival, Summerfest, & CMJ Music Marathon and opened for Aerosmith, Slash, Kid Rock, The Offspring, Sammy Hagar, Evanescence, Halestorm, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Twenty One Pilots and countless others.
Papa Roach have given fans a taste of their forthcoming ninth album with a video for their new single ‘Help’. The track dropped earlier today, Friday 15th February and is available across all digital streaming platforms via Eleven Seven Music. The new album is expected to be released in May.
Check it out here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSecjqcO3Jk
“Help” was produced by Nicholas “Ras” Furlong and Colin Brittian, who grew up listening to Papa Roach and inspired the band to revisit some of their early influences. “We really followed our instincts and tried something unproven,” explains Furlong. “We ended up morphing the band’s best ‘old school’ traits into a courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach in the 21st Century.” Lyrically the new offering, touches on the personal, yet relatable, theme that surrounds the universal struggle of surviving mental health issues.
Papa Roach teased fans late last year with the viral release of “Crooked Teeth” (LISTEN HERE), which is nearing 2M streams on Spotify. Featuring one of the album’s more unorthodox moments—the 808 bass drop into a metal breakdown, “Crooked Teeth” hit the online community, exciting fans all over the world who are expecting an album as dynamic as their classics INFEST and Getting Away with Murder.
Papa Roach will be heading out on a Canadian tour with Sum 41 during April, followed by a handful of US festival dates. More dates will be announced soon via their website: www.paparoach.com/tour
Multi-media recording artist and producer Grimes shares the official video for 'Venus Fly.' The video, directed and edited by Grimes, also features Janelle Monáe. 'Venus Fly' is now live on Grimes' YouTube; watch the video here: http://smarturl.it/VenusFlyYT
"We used the Phantom cameras to create a feeling of time suspended," said Grimes of the inspiration behind the video.
'Venus Fly' is taken from Grimes' critically-adored album 'Art Angels' (4AD) which had prime placement on basically every End of Year list. Last year, Grimes toured the album, selling out venues and headlining festivals across the world.
