Melissa hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her second Best Female Rock Grammy.  The album went six times platinum and spent more than two and a half years on the album chart.  Her highest charting album to date, Your Little Secret (#6 on the Billboard Top 200), included the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.”  Her astounding success led Etheridge to receive the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards.  She has also been honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Slayer: New Album Coming, Tour Dates Kick Off 4-24-15

SLAYER NEARING COMPLETION OF NEW ALBUM
Band's 2015-2016 Global Tour Kicks off April 24
Band will Headlline the 2015 Mayhem Festival and Play
Other Headline and Major Outdoor Festival Dates
LOS ANGELES, CA - (MONDAY, April 20, 2015) - Slayer - bassist/vocalist Tom Araya, guitarist Kerry King, and returning drummer Paul Bostaph, along with touring guitarist Gary Holt and producer Terry Date - has completed recording what is one of the most highly-anticipated albums of 2015, Slayer's 11th studio album and the band's first new effort since 2011's Grammy-nominated World Painted Blood.  The currently untitled album is expected out later this year, and will be released on Slayer's own as yet unnamed label (through Nuclear Blast).

Slayer will tour extensively to support the new album, headlining this summer's Mayhem Festival as well as playing other major outdoor festivals and several "An Evening With..." Slayer-only concerts.  The confirmed itinerary is below.

Following Slayer's studio sessions in March 2014 that yielded the track "Implode," offered by the band as a free download, Slayer recorded on and off between September and mid-January at L.A.'s Henson Studios, and is currently mixing the album.  Eleven songs have been recorded, but what will end up on the final track listing is yet to be determined.  Early reports indicate that Slayer fans have a lot to look forward to - the new music is a sonic assault of brutal, ominous, lightening-fast and heavy-as-hell music with lyrics that unmask what Slayer knows best - the terror, the corruption and the societal turmoil that dominates our world.

"The new songs have that iconic Slayer feel," said Nuclear Blast America's General Manager Gerardo Martinez.  "Tom's vocals are probably the best I've heard in two decades, and Kerry, Paul and Gary are playing their asses of with powerful, intense performances and riffs and beats that are absolutely lethal."

Fans got a second preview of the new album this past Saturday when another one of the new songs, "When The Stillness Comes," was released as a limited-edition (only 5000 copies worldwide), seven-inch vinyl picture disc exclusive for Record Store Day.

The new album marks the first time Slayer has worked with producer Terry Date (Slipknot, Soundgarden, Deftones), Bostaph's return to the Slayer recording line-up since 2001's God Hates Us All, and Holt's first appearance on a Slayer album.  It's also the first Slayer album without the presence of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman, athough a Hanneman-penned song is on the final track listing.

According to Araya, "Jeff had always been writing and demoing songs, even up until shortly before he passed.  You can tell by the quality of his songwriting that this was his passion.  There will be a song written by Jeff on the new album.  Everything but the vocals had been completed, so we did the vocals and it's done.  And there are a few more of Jeff's songs that we might record and release in the future."

"With this new album," added King, "Tom, Paul and I put all of our ideas out on to the table, working in a more collaborative way toward the ultimate heavy outcome.  And I've got to give big props to Gary who played lead on several of the new songs.  I think he got all of his leads done in one day - he's a maniac!"

ABOUT SLAYER:
For nearly three decades, Slayer's onslaught has proven the band to be the supreme thrash-metal band on the planet. The two-time Grammy-winning band has also accumulated an abundance of Certified Gold Albums along with "Best..." awards from media outlets all over the world, including Kerrang!SPINMetal HammerRevolver, and Esquire.  Throughout Slayer's history, the band has never faltered in unleashing its extreme and focused sonic assault, and, unlike many of its contemporaries who "commercialized" their sound, Slayer has remained crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream.  Slayer's founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed in 2013, and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in since.  Paul Bostaph, who was Slayer's drummer from '94 - '01, has rejoined bassist/vocalist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King, and is back behind the kit. Slayer is set to release its 11th studio album later this year.

LEE COREY OSWALD’S LEE ELLIS ANNOUNCES NEW SOLO ALBUM COMING JUNE 23RD

       LEE COREY OSWALD’S LEE ELLIS ANNOUNCES
            NEW SOLO ALBUM COMING JUNE 23RD

April 20, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA – Portland singer-songwriter and Lee Corey Oswald guitarist/vocalist Lee Ellis has announced plans to release his debut solo album, Me and This Army, on June 23rd via No Sleep Records. He’s also partnered up with SubstreamMagazine.com today to reveal the record’s first new track, “Arthur.” The album is available now for pre-order at http://nslp.co/leeellispo.

Stream “Arthur” now at SubstreamMagazine.com: http://bit.ly/1DtAZO2

“"Arthur" is a song about quarreling with someone over the Internet,” says Ellis. “I don't even remember what it was over but it was just another instance of social media enabling someone to be someone they're not. "Internet presences" are a real thing these days, for better or for worse, and everyone wants a piece of the spotlight (including myself).”

Ellis’ debut is an earnest collection of thirteen tracks that blend styles of haunting indie-folk and electro-inspired and showcase his skillful songwriting abilities as heard on the new track “Arthur.” The record’s raw recording adds another layer of emotion as it was captured in the moment at a particular time.

“The album is split between more electronic songs like this one and more stripped down acoustic numbers,” Ellis adds. “It's a kind of compilation of my life over the last 2 or so years which is when I began recording it on my phone and laptop. The lo-fi feel comes from this process, as I recorded different tracks in my bedroom, on the road, the practice rooms in the music building at my old school, and even in parks and such random places as these.  I'm very excited and grateful to work with no sleep on this release.”

Ellis will tour this summer with his band Lee Corey Oswald in support of their latest record, Regards, which is available now from No Sleep Records. Catch the band on the Vans Warped Tour all summer long.

Me and This Army Track List:
1.     Flipside (Grow Up)
2.     I’m Sorry For Me

Weeknight Premiere "In The Dust" Video On NOISEY || Kicks Off Spring Tour April 24th

Weeknight Premiere "In The Dust" Video On NOISEY
Kicks Off Spring Tour April 24th
'In The Dust' Cassette Single Out April 21st On Dead Stare Records
 Weeknight is releasing a brutally haunting new music video for the track "In The Dust". NOISEY  describes, "The duo manages to extract the elements of 80s goth and new-wave, and re-appropriate them in a context that isn't reliant on nostalgia." The song is the title-track off their upcoming cassette single due out April 21st on Dead Stare Records. Be sure to catch the synth-goth duo when they hit the road for their spring tour on 4/24 starting in Bennington, VT.

Following the success of last year's debut LP Post-Everything, the New York duo, consisting of Andy Simmons and Holly MacGibbon, took a break to create two hauntingly beautiful tracks.
 Both tracks showcase the duo's ability to emulate their dark-synth influences while creating tracks with their signature contrastingly melodic vocals woven thoughout hard beats and dreamscape guitar work.

Weeknight hops between genres effortlessly, creating an evocative mystique with lingering vocals and plucked solos. Truly mastering the ability to mix, Weeknight delivers a glorious phantasm to lose yourself in. Static synth lines bubble between the knocking beat of the drum, nudging you into an ephemeral trance. With each effort, Weeknight truly push the envelope, bringing audiences a dreamlike atmosphere.

Weeknight's In The Dust cassette single is out April 21st on Dead Stare Records. Spring tour kicks off 4/24 in Bennington, VT.
Press Quotes

The duo boss that same male-female vocal chemistry that saw Mosshart and Hince rise to prominence with The Kills, they boast a lyrical glumness that could rival the likes of Matt Berninger and Paul Banks, and in turns they are as melodiously miserable as The National and as sublimely macabre as Interpol.” - The Line of Best Fit

“The duo Weeknight make elegant synth pop that doesn’t let any of their darkness get in the way of beautifully orchestrated melodies.  - Stereogum

"The music on this debut disc falls into a category of its own (or deftly meshes a bunch of au courant ones), infusing dark-pop and shoegaze elements with pulsating synth beats and the blend of Holly and Andy’s disparate vocals." - CMJ
 US Spring Tour
