Chantel McGregor has announced her long-awaited second album “Lose Control”, released in October
Guitarist and singer-songwriter Chantel McGregor will release her highly anticipated new album, Lose Control, on Friday 9th October 2015 on her independent boutique label Tis Rock Music. The new album is the follow up to her critically acclaimed 2011 debut solo album, Like No Other.After four years of touring and festival appearances, Chantel returns with a vengeance with ten new songs that not only salutes contemporary rock, but shows her gradual transition from conventional Blues to a harder, bigger and bolder rock sound with progressive influences.
From the sound clips it sounds like a far darker and heavier album than her debut. She’s taking pre-orders now from her website.
Zero She Flies, the band formerly known as Mermaid Kiss, follow up their earlier single “Small Mercies” with the four-track EP “The River”, available today as a download from Bandcamp.
The EP features a number of guest musicans including Panic Room’s Jon Edwards alongside the core quartet of Maria Milewska, Jamie Field, Wendy Marks and Shane Webb. More detail including full credits and lyrics can be found on the band’s website.
The video for Mastodon’s “Asleep in the Deep” is definitely a bit surreal, but does star a cat.
Cats are indeed metal. We had a cat (black, of course) who was a devoted fan of Tommy Vance’s Friday Rock Show. Don’t try to claim it was just because he knew he’s be fed at the end of the show and had come to associate the sound of Tommy Vamce’s vpice with “food”. He surely had a deep and abiding love for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.
Cats may be metal, but they aren’t punk. We had another cat who absolutely hated The Damned.
There will be a rare live performance by Halo Blind on Friday 17th July at Fibbers in York.
Most of the the new album and a bit of The Fabric (our debut album) will by played. I am delighted to tell you that my Mostly Autumn band mate and all round awesome dude Alex Cromarty is on the drum stool.
PLUS, the evening will also play host to the first ever live performance by Mantra Vega, who will be performing acoustic versions of material from their debut album. Mantra Vega is a new transatlantic band fronted by Heather Findlay (Mostly Autumn) and Dave Kerzner (Sound of Contact).
AND IF THAT WASN”T ENOUGH exciting live music for you, the uber talented Chris Helme (The Seahorses) is also on the bill.
Dave Foster, guitarist for Panic Room, Mr So and So & The Steve Rothery Band has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his second solo album, to be titled “Dreamless”.
His first solo album, 2012′s “Gravity” was excellent, largely instumental but also featuring a wonderful guest vocal contribution from Dinet Poortman. The new album is likewise going to be a mix of vocal and instrumental tracks, and Dave Foster is promising ‘an array of guest musicians’, the identities of whom are yet to be announced.
