David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group have announced the latest addition to their growing roster, female fronted Los Angeles hard rock band Hail Sagan. Hail Sagan features powerhouse vocalist Sagan Amery, with a devilish masked group rumored to include guitarists Nick Quijano (Powerman 5000) and Andrew Weissberg.
Since forming in 2015, the band has amassed a monstrous fan-base, with over 125,000 followers across their social media, solidified further this month with the release of their debut video “Dark Cloud”. The clip, which debuted earlier this month via Revolver, has already gained over 80,000 views. The track, and video, which deals with the subject of abuse and bullying, has already resonated strongly with fans.
Amery says '"It's been a great experience being able to broach the subject of bullying and abuse with the lyrics of this song. We took it one step further and created a video with director Matthew Crum and DP Kenny Keeler that visually enhanced the sensitive subject matter. We chose to mask the members of the band in an effort to show the world that anyone can be a part of this, you never know who will be under there, maybe even a fan or someone who needs music to save them."

The band will release their self-titled debut EP in Fall 2016 on EMP Label Group, and will be available for pre-order later this month.

Stereophonics front man Kelly Jones has exclusively told Virgin Radio that the band’s tenth album will come out next year – their 20th anniversary year.
Jones told Virgin Radio presenter Jon Jackson: “We’ve pretty much finished the tenth album. We’ll start mixing it on the 6 September, when the tour’s finished. I’d like to bring it out next summer or spring time if possible. If it all works out well we’re going to release the tenth studio album on the twentieth year.
“I wouldn’t want to do that with a bunch of memorabilia and B-sides and I don’t want to celebrate one album. I want to keep the band moving forward. It’s sounding good at the minute so I’m looking forward to getting it out there, coming back around and playing the shows again.”
The interview with Kelly Jones will be played out on Virgin Radio this afternoon (Monday 18 July) between 1-4pm, when Jon Jackson will be filling in for regular afternoon presenter Kate Lawler.
