Formed in 2008, four best friends from New York decided to come together to create the rock band EVHO. Drawing influence from the classic to modern rock bands, EVHO moulded their own unique sound which would set them apart from a music scene fading into mediocrity. With 11 national US tours and 2 live Television performances under their belt, EVHO was fortunate enough to share the stage with quality acts like The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, He Is Legend, The Ataris, Senses Fail, The Sleeping, Closure in Moscow, The Dollyrots, Sleeping With Sirens and many more. With an ambitious desire to share their music with the world and bring people back to the innovative roots of rock and roll, EVHO strives to help shape the future of music.

Following their breakthrough debut album, dubbed “one of the year’s best” by Kerrang! Magazine, and a packed-out headline tour across the UK, Vukovi have revealed a thought provoking new video for their single, ‘Weirdo’, and confirmed UK headline tour dates beginning in May, and festival appearances.
“This video is about raising awareness to the victimisation and cultural impact that bullying, and more specifically cyber bullying, has on young people in today's digital age,” frontwoman Janine Shilstone explains.
"The idea came after chatting to numerous fans at our shows and learning about the hell they go through at school because they like "weird music" or dress differently. They would tell me that our music made them feel like they fit in somewhere and our shows were a place to meet like-minded people.
The girls featured in our video have all been victims of cyber bullying at an extreme level, and for them to be a part of this is not only courageous but a massive fuck you to the people that made them feel the way they did. If these girls can stand up and do it, we all can. And if this video makes any one victim not feel alone, then we've done our job.
I want people to embrace their quirks and be proud that they don't fit the mould. Embrace the weirdo in you. #weirdo4lyf”
Watch ‘Weirdo’ here - https://youtu.be/0u0yMynjIEw
March 2017 saw the long-awaited release of Vukovi’s debut album receive rave reviews. Heralded as “a Vuk-ing brilliant debut” and awarded 5K’s by Kerrang! Magazine, who then saw frontwoman Janine immortalised in Ray Zel’s iconic Pandora comic strip, whilst Rock Sound dubbed it “packed with more fizz and colour than a bath bomb in a vat of Irn-Bru”. ‘Vukovi’ is out now via LAB Records and available to order here - http://vukovi.tmstor.es/.

Rag'n'Bone Man has released the video for his new single 'Skin'. You can watch the video here.
Rag’n’Bone Man, AKA Rory Graham, releases his new single Skin, out now on Best Laid Plans / Columbia Records. Taken from his debut album Human which was released on February 10 to mass critical acclaim, the album was immediately certified gold and swiftly certified platinum just 3 weeks later having spent 2 consecutive weeks at the number 1 spot in the UK charts.
The phenomenal success of Human has resonated around the globe on an equally outstanding scale, with the album surpassing an amazing 1 million sales worldwide and hitting the number 1 spot on iTunes in over 30 countries. A hugely successful recent trip to the US saw Rory make his second US TV performance (following a recent appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show) on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and play a sold out show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Rory also made his SXSW debut last week where he played a plethora of packed shows across Austin, Texas.
Having won two BRIT Awards - making Rory the first BRITs Critics’ Choice Award winner to win Best British Breakthrough Act in the same year - Rory is now back on the road performing and doing what he loves best. Currently on tour playing sold out shows across Europe, Rory arrives back in the UK from April 18 onwards where he will play a series of further sold out dates, including two nights at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire. His summer festival schedule is also booking up fast where he’ll perform at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival, Wildlife, Parklife, Live At Leeds, Isle Of Wight, TRNSMT, Bestival, plus many more.
Following appearances on Later with Jools Holland (where he featured on two separate shows) and The Graham Norton Show, Rory will perform his new single Skin on Comic Relief tonight on BBC 1. The debut album Human from Rag’n’Bone Man has now sold an incredible 360K copies in the UK alone.
He heads out on tour this month, visiting cities across the UK. Dates below:
18-Apr-17 Bristol O2 Academy
19-Apr-17 London O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire
20-Apr-17 London O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire

Calling the track a “twisted love song,” lead singer Rena Lovelis says that “Break My Heart” was inspired by over-romanticizing the painful part of a break-up. “It’s about how, in a relationship, you go through these phases — the first date, the first kiss, the honeymoon — and then after you’ve experienced all the amazing parts of that love, you want to go to the dark side. You want this person to break your heart so you can feel what it’s like to long for them and to feel so desperate that you’ll do anything to get them back. So it’s kind of masochistic!”
Hey Violet will perform “Guys My Age” on US TV show, Late Night With Seth Meyers on March 21st. They are currently working on their debut album, which will be out later this year via Virgin EMI. In the meantime, the band which is Rena, her sister Nia Lovelis (drums), Miranda Miller (keys, vocals), Casey Moreta (lead guitar) and Iain Shipp (bass) are currently on a sold out US tour. UK fan will get the chance to see the band live this spring, dates below;
UK TOUR DATES IN MAY
8TH – LONDON, THE GARAGE
9TH – GLASGOW, O2 ABC 2
10TH – MANCHESTER, SOUND CONTROL
“Break My Heart” is the follow-up to Hey Violet’s smash single “Guys My Age”, which was named one of the Best Songs of 2016 by The New York Times and one of the 20 Best Songs of 2016 by V Magazine. The video for the single also racked up over 10 million views. The band are currently featured on the March cover of Alternative Press.
Hey Violet’s current EP Brand New Moves, debuted as the #1 artist album on iTunes in the U.S. and U.K. The Los Angeles Times compared their move “from grimy punk to shiny pop” to the Go-Go’s, while Galore declares front woman Rena Lovelis, “emits an unheard of level of rock-stardom for such a small girl without even singing a single note. But when she does sing, it’s as if Courtney Love, Gwen Stefani, and Hayley Williams crashed into each other and made a whole new generation of rock star.”
