Sixx:A.M. Release New Lyric Video For “We Will Not Go Quietly”

 Today, fans of music icons Sixx:A.M. can purchase the band’s celebratory HITS album on vinyl and enjoy a new lyric video for their track “We Will Not Go Quietly,” which appears on their latest album released via Better Noise Music

Additionally, the band announced that a cassette version would be available for purchase
this March.

Originally released in October, the band put together HITS as a retrospective celebration of their biggest hits and fan-favorite songs, including five unheard tracks and mixes, marking the band's first official album with new material since 2016. 

Featured on their last album, Prayers for the Blessed,  “We Will Not Go Quietly” was directly inspired by the group’s experience on tour and a purposeful step in a more bombastic direction.

sixxam.ffm.to/wewillnotgoquietly

The album was released alongside iconic Sixx:A.M. and Mötley Crüe founding member and music legend Nikki Sixx’s new memoir 
THE FIRST 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx

 The book is already getting acclaimed media coverage, with the LA Times writing, “Funny yet surprisingly moving memoir of a small-town kid figuring out who he wanted to be.” One of the brand new focus tracks included on the album is also titled “The First 21,” with the lyrics being inspired by the captivating content of the book, and the accompanying music video being made up of newly discovered home movie footage of Nikki Sixx and the band. Now in his 21st year of sobriety, Sixx is incredibly passionate about his craft and wonderfully open about his life in rock and roll, serving as a long-time advocate for expanding the support services for people in recovery from substance use disorder (SUD). He has given testimony on Capitol Hill, made frequent media appearances to discuss his experiences, and authored op-eds on the subject in major publications.

In the memoir, Sixx, already a three-time New York Times best-selling author, tells the inspirational story of his first 21 years, how Frank Feranna became Nikki Sixx. He was an all-American kid—hunting, fishing, chasing girls, and playing football—but underneath it all, there was a burning desire for more, and that more was music. He eventually took a Greyhound bound for Hollywood. In Los Angeles, Frank lived with his aunt and his uncle—the president of Capitol Records—for a short time. But there was no easy path to the top. Frank honed his craft, forming a group of his own: London, the precursor of Mötley Crüe. Frank changed his name to Nikki London, Nikki Nine, and, finally, Nikki Sixx. Like Huck Finn with a stolen guitar, he had a vision: a group that combined punk, glam, and hard rock into the biggest, most theatrical and irresistible package the world had ever seen. With hard work, passion, and some luck, the vision manifested in reality— making for a profound true-life story of finding your identity, which fans have partly come to know through Mötley Crüe’s widely-celebrated collaborative autobiography The Dirt, most recently adapted into a hit biopic by Netflix in 2019.

The First 21 also continues Sixx’s tradition of setting the soundtrack to his own life, combining his work as a writer and a musician to offer multi-layered pieces of art. In 2007, Sixx:A.M. released The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, which acts as a companion piece to Sixx’s best-selling memoir The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, released the same year, introducing the concept of a book soundtrack into popular culture. Both the book and the album were successes upon release, with the book instantly becoming a New York Times-best seller in its first week, selling out in bookstores around the U.S. The album spawned the #1 single Life Is Beautiful,” while simultaneously receiving critical acclaim and eventually achieving Gold certification in the U.S. IGN praised its effectiveness as a concept album, writing, “[It’s] not really an album but rather a musical book. It is almost impossible to recommend any specific songs over others.” Expanding this artistic signature move by Sixx, The First 21 now has its own soundtrack with the HITS album.

Celebrating their catalogue on Spotify, the band revealed a new “Sixx:A.M. 101 Playlist.” 
The playlist offers new and old fans a comprehensive collection of the band’s acclaimed catalogue.
Stream it 
HERE.

Nikki Sixx also curated a companion playlist to his book called 
“Nikki Sixx’s First 21 Playlist” 
which features the soundtrack to his formative years and is available for streaming HERE.

Additionally, the band launched two new exclusive merchandise collections for fans available for purchase HERE and HERE.

Matt Heafy announces Rashomon, the debut album, Ibaraki, and enlists Behemoth’s Nergal for new single, Akumu

Trivium singer and guitarist Matthew Kiichi Heafy has shared more details about his long-awaited and much-anticipated IBARAKI project.

The project's debut album Rashomon will be released on May 6 via Nuclear Blast.

This week, the band has shared the video for Akumu (Feat. Nergal). Watch it here.

“'Akumu' translates to 'nightmare' and with this piece, I encourage the listener to work to find their interpretations of what they feel from the lyrics, music, and the haunting visuals of the music video,” says Kiichi. “I have always been fascinated by Sagazan's 'Transfiguration,' and for years, I have wanted to pay homage to his works with a performance art piece; to finally be able to immerse myself in his style was an intense experience.”

He finishes, “Having Nergal guest in this Ihsahn co-written piece allowed me to combine many of my long-time influences; and when I presented with Nergal of the challenge of translating my lyrics into Polish, it brought the song to another level.”

Last month, Ibaraki offered fans a taste and a tease of the music by sharing the video for Tamashii No Houkai, featuring special guest Ihsahn of Emperor fame, who is a core contributor and partner in this project. Watch the video here.

Fans will be able to listen to Akumu and Tamashii No Houkai by pre-saving here.

Pre-order the album Rashomon on CD, vinyl, etc here. Local Pre-order available soon

Ibaraki was recently selected as one of the most anticipated releases of 2022 by Revolver.

ABOUT IBARAKI:
IBARAKI the name for a terrifying Japanese demon taken from feudal legend and the new project of Trivium's Matthew Kiichi Heafy is more than a solo record. It's the end-result of a journey of an artist finding his voice. Its inspirations include everything from an adoration for the extremes of black metal to the exuberant storytelling of Gerard Way to the adventuresome worldliness of tragic bon viveur Anthony Bourdain. It's a reflection of Kiichi's multifaceted interests as well as a profound affirmation of his Japanese-American identity, and one that led him to confront one of his familys most tragic moments. Like the artist behind it, there is much to the story of Ibaraki and it began with a timid email to one of black metal's most revered and influential figures.

Kiichi, a fan of black metal before he even started Trivium, reached out to label reps for Ihsahn of Emperor, and the artist personally responded. He recalls, “It was so cool to get that nod and it inspired me to start checking some of his solo stuff. Hed just released his own solo record and I'd never heard anything like it saxophones, clean singing, jazz chords. It was incredible to me. He's this non-stop inventor. So I started writing in a totally different way.”

The exposure to Ihsahn's solo work that would inspire the gradual craftsmanship that would eventually become Ibaraki. It was also the beginning of a friendship and creative collaboration that would eventually compel Ihsahn to take a leap of his own into a newfound role as producer on the project. While much of the material for Ibaraki was assembled over those months and years as much a songwriting process as an exchange of ideas between friends it wasn't until the pandemic that the space was created and the idea could really flourish.

It was very loose,” says Ihsahn. “We just had rough demos for a very long time because we're arguably pretty busy people, but suddenly, everything was cancelled and we had time on our hands for the first time, so it was like, 'OK, let's do this.' We never got to work in the same room; he'd track guitars and send them to me, I'd run them through my studio and send them back. It was a new way of working, but it was like he was there on the other side of the glass. Matt is a very, very positive energetic and passionate music fan we have similar attitudes to music and open mindedness. We hit it off, and it's been really rewarding to me.”

The creative interactions between the pair are the result of a deep trust borne of a commonality of their experience. “We both started our respective bands when we were 13,” Ihsahn says. “We got signed when we were 16. That's young, and in essence we both found our path in life at an early age. We've talked a lot about that and our different experiences with that, because it's like we know nothing else.”

While material was primarily written by Kiichi, Ihsahn engineered and produced and contributed some song structures, plus Trivium drummer Alex Bent and bassist Paolo Gregoletto and guitarist Corey Beaulieu contributed to various tracks. Ihsahn's wife Heidi even sampled some natural sounds from the forest near their home and his entire family. Additional guests include the aforementioned Way and Behemoth's Nergal.

Ihsahn also encouraged Kiichi to seek out new avenues for lyrical inspiration, namely his Japanese heritage. While an array of stories have been told via the tattoos on his body, such as the specific ancient Japanese story of gods, goddesses, and monsters from the Shinto religion taught to him by his mother, he began pouring the stories into lyrics.

While the rich mythology and folklore of Japan that would give IBARAKI its unique aesthetics and influences, it also provides the artist with the catalyst to contemplate his own identity and to consider how recent tragedies stateside have highlighted the need for better representation in metal.

GIRLPOOL Share Video For Newest Single “DRAGGING MY LIFE IN TO A DREAM”

Girlpool, the Los Angeles duo comprised of Avery Tucker (he/him) and Harmony Tividad (she/her), share a self-directed video for “Dragging My Life Into a Dream,” the new single from their upcoming album Forgiveness, out April 29th via ANTI-.
 
I wrote ‘Dragging My Life Into a Dream’ after going out to a party. I had spent the last year confronting being on my own in a way I had been avoiding for a long time. Although I knew that I was growing and still needed to heal from past relationships, I missed feeling connected to somebody and inspired,” says Tucker. “This song is about romanticising a past time and also longing for my heart to feel open and innocent again.
 
Forgiveness, which finds Girlpool embracing weirdo-pop decadence without sacrificing the poetic curiosity that has always made their music so absorbing, is also their slickest and most ambitious album to date. It’s filled with idiosyncratic and provocative gestures that simultaneously support and complicate the emotionally intricate material. With its unique blend of introspective ear worms and surreal party music, Forgiveness reaches beyond the loosely sketched parameters of “indie rock,” challenging any preconceived notions of what a Girlpool album can or should be.
 
To support their vision of a sound at the intersection of Hollywood futurism and post-grunge sincerity, Girlpool enlisted help from producer Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Miya Folick). While they had conversations with other potential collaborators, Rothman’s genuine enthusiasm for crafting music at that crossroads — freaky and fucked-up, but also heartfelt and grounded — helped seal the deal. Rothman’s input on Forgiveness marked the first time Harmony and Avery allowed someone all the way inside their intimate, borderline telepathic approach to song-making — a pure partnership that has remained constant, even as the music has evolved.

The New York Times
“A country guitar twang, Harmony Tividad’s breathy coos and a sense of impressionistic abandon conjure a cinematic intensity on ‘Faultline.’ But Girlpool doesn’t stop there — instead, it returns with the same propensity for piercing, bleeding-heart lyricism that has defined its work.”
Stereogum
“A shimmering music box, spinning round and round and there’s no end in sight. It’s one of the band’s loveliest-sounding songs, but it’s also one of their saddest.”
The Fader
“Swooning and romantic… Despite the heavenly vibe suggested by the track’s soft drums and majestic strings, there’s a darkness bubbling under with Harmony Tividad[‘s] singing.”
UPROXX
“Serves as an introduction to a new sound and feel for Girlpool, wherein the gentle harmony and the song’s melody soars.”

FOO FIGHTERS One Night Only! Performing at GMHBA STADIUM, GEELONG – FRIDAY 4 MARCH 2022

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS + THE MEANIES

GROHL, HAWKINS, MENDEL, SHIFLETT, SMEAR & JAFFEE BRING ROCK & ROLL BACK DOWN UNDER WITH THE FIRST FULL CAPACITY STADIUM SHOW BY ANY INTERNATIONAL ARTIST IN AUSTRALIA SINCE 2020

An Always Live Event

TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, 12PM AEDT

Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce Rock & Roll Hall Of Famers Foo Fighters will return to Australia next month, with a history-making performance at Geelong’s (VIC) GMHBA Stadium on Friday 4 March.

Tickets go on sale Friday 25 February (12pm AEDT) via frontiertouring.com/foofighters.

The 12-time GRAMMY winning band will arrive in Australia next week, with this exclusive, one-off concert – Foo Fighters’ first performance down under since 2018. This will be the first time a full-capacity stadium show by any international music artist has taken place in Australia since the COVID pandemic first hit back in March 2020.

After two years of live music virtually being on hold, and with our international borders now re-open for business, Foo Fighters will arrive in Victoria next week to celebrate the State’s extraordinary reputation as the live music capital of Australia. Foo Fighters’ record sales in Australia stand in excess of 1.8 million, with eight #1 albums – the most #1 debuts in any territory for the band, who’ve visited our shores 12 times so far throughout their 27-year career.

News of Foo Fighters' upcoming Geelong concert is announced today in partnership with the Victorian Government’s contemporary live music major event ALWAYS LIVE – a brand new, State-wide celebration of contemporary live music taking place later this year. Bringing together icons of Australia’s music scene with emerging local talent and some of the best global acts on the planet, the ALWAYS LIVE program will feature shows of all scales and styles, created and curated for Victoria’s special venues, places and stages. Supported by the Victorian Government, the impetus for ALWAYS LIVE was initially conceived by legendary former Mushroom Group Chairman Michael Gudinski.

Foo Fighter’s latest and tenth studio album, Medicine At Midnight, was released in February 2021 on Roswell Records/RCA Records/Sony Music, debuting at #1 in Australia and featuring fan-favourite tracks that have already become staples of the FF live set such as ‘Shame Shame’‘No Son Of Mine’, and the album’s title track.

This week the band celebrate the theatrical release of their cinematic horror comedy film STUDIO 666, which sees Dave Grohl grappling with supernatural forces as the band attempt to record their much-anticipated 10th album – head HERE to buy tix, with the film in cinemas for one week only! Back in October 2021, Grohl also hit book bestseller lists across the globe with The Storyteller – a fascinating collection of his life memories and stories.

Foo Fighters will be joined in Geelong by very special guests Amyl and The Sniffers – whose 2021 album Comfort to Me debuted at #2 in Australia, #21 in the UK, and #18 in the US, and was BBC6’s Album of the Day – as well as Melbourne punk royalty The Meanies, who’ve been kicking out the jams for three decades now, most recently heard on 2020’s Desperate Measures.

Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of history when the Foo Fighters bring their incredible rock’n’roll marathon live experience back to Victoria at long last. Tickets are on sale this Friday 12pm, and are expected to sell out quickly… act fast!

Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee.

HOODOO GURUS Release “I COME FROM YOUR FUTURE”

A RETURN TO THE GURUS' RAW GARAGE-ROCK ROOTS, “I COME FROM YOUR FUTURE” IS BEING SERVICED TO COMMUNITY RADIO AND INDEPENDENT MEDIA ONLY, AS A THANK YOU TO THOSE OUTLETS THAT SUPPORTED THE GROUP BEFORE ANYONE ELSE, AND AS A REMINDER OF THE GROUP'S DAYS PLAYING THE TRADE UNION CLUB AND THE TOTE AND TOURING IN A TARAGO.

A rare single from the pen and throat of guitarist Brad Shepherd (the last one was “You Open My Eyes” back in '94), the new Hoodoo Gurus single “I Come From Your Future” is a raw high energy garage-rocker that calls to mind the early days of the Gurus, when their primal rockers like “Leilani” and “The Echo Chamber” would light up their favourite venues like the Trade Union Club in Sydney and the Tote in Melbourne,  and when they and kindred spirits like The Screaming Tribesmen, The Scientists and The Died Pretty would traverse the interstate highways in rented Tarago's and stay in fleapits. 

 As the last single to appear before the release of their new album Chariot of the Gods in the 40th year of their existence, it's appropriate the track also serves as a thank you of sorts to the grass-roots media which was the first to support the Gurus back in the early '80s. The Gurus released their first single on an indie label, and it was thanks primarily to airplay on community radio stations like Melbourne's 3RRR and 3PBS, Sydney's 2SER, Brisbane's 4ZZZ, Perth's 6RTR and Adelaide's 5UV (now Radio Adelaide) and 5DDD (now Three D Radio) – and of course Triple J (formerly Double J), which still only served Sydney – that they were able to pull people to their shows as they started to venture out of their inner-city Sydney base. The Gurus have decided to acknowledge their debt of gratitude by making “I Come From Your Future” available to independent radio ahead of anyone else.

 Raw it may be, but “I Come From Your Future” is not atypical of the new album, which is as stripped back and powerful as anything the Gurus have ever recorded. Indeed, the first singles from the album saw Dave Faulkner expressing righteous anger that fuelled the group to find hitherto untapped savagery, while more recent singles “Get Out Of Dodge” and “Carry On” re-tapped the Gurus' classic power-pop roots, as previously heard in the likes of “Come Any Time” and “What's My Scene”. The album contains an array of other melodic Faulkner finery –  great songs like “Settle Down” and “My Imaginary Friend” – and a bit more Shephard swankery – “Equinox” could easily have given Brad two singles on the album.  And then there's the psychedelic sprawl of the title track. Fans who pick up the double vinyl edition of the album will get a few extra tracks, including a fuzzed-out and thumping cover of “I Wanna Be Your Man” – the classic Lennon & McCartney tune that the Rolling Stones made their own in '64 – and a Nuggets-worthy, guitar'n'harp wailing version of Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde R&B workout “Obviously 5 Believers”.

 Gurus fans will get to hear the new album in its entirety – plus more – ahead of its release when eMusic Live streams a special event recorded at Damien Gerard Studios on the NSW Central Coast. Going out internationally at 8:00pm AEDT / WST / PST / EST / GMT on Thursday, 10 March, the evening before Chariot Of The Gods’ official release, the stream is designed both as a special album preview and a thank you to the Gurus' loyal fans around the world who have put up with canceled tours by the band over the past two years. The stream will include an opportunity for fans to chat with the band live. 

 Chariot Of The Gods is out March 11, and, as previously announced, the band will follow the album's release with a national run of dates with special guests from the USA The Dandy Warhols – a band who share many of the same underground influences as the Gurus – with hand-picked local supports in each city, including all-female indie pop up and comers The Buoys in Sydney, indie guitar pop legends Even in Melbourne and Adelaide and new power-pop prodigies Rinehearts in Perth

Tickets for Hoodoo Gurus on eMusic Live on Thursday, 10 March 2022 are available from www.emusiclive.com NOW.

Chariot of the Gods is released on Friday, 11 March 2022 on Big Time Records through EMI Music and is available for pre-order here.

CrewCare announce details of 2022 Roady4Roadies events

Roadies … they are the unsung heroes that make the magic happen at the live music events we all love. Often out of sight and out of mind, live music crew are the ones that “make our dreams come true”!
 
Don’t just take it from us, Jimmy Barnes knows a thing or two about crew … 

Australian music crew number over 22,500 and COVID has seen ALL of them without work these past 2 years.  There has been little support for them, other than the extraordinary efforts of Support Act, who have helped thousands in need through their darkest times.
 
Many crew have been forced to leave the industry they love, many others simply cannot survive.
 
Roady4Roadies is a national event organised by CrewCare to raise greater awareness of the critical roles they play, with all funds going directly to Support Act's ‘Crew’ Fund.
 
This year, Roady4Roadies events will take place in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart on Sunday, 1 May 2022, and Brisbane, Sydney, Darwin and Newcastle on Saturday, 7 May 2022.

Tickets to all events are on sale NOW from Moshtix.
 
Each event kicks off with a leisurely, neighbourhood walk followed by family activities and live entertainment. Tickets are just $20 and go a long way to helping those most in need.
 
CrewCare, a charity dedicated to the welfare of crew, is asking everyone who loves, and lives, live music to get involved to meet your ‘Roadies’ and enjoy the day, whilst assisting an important but generally overlooked and forgotten sector of the live music industry.

Peter Darwin
Freelance Site Manager
The pandemic has seen the loss of at least 8 stadium events in Adelaide. Each of these events has meant the loss of 450 production crew roles, 600 stadium staff roles and more than 250 subcontractor roles at a minimum of 1 week’s equivalent work. Multiply that by 5 major cities and that is 20500 crew who lost 2 month’s work each year since 2020 at minimum. These are just the stadium events let alone the 52 plus entertainment centre shows … The industry is very, very damaged.
Jerry Reinhardt
General Manager, Concert & Corporate Productions WA
The pandemic has affected all Australians in varying degrees over the last two years. However, the entertainment industry has been disproportionally adversely affected. Each stadium event cancelled reverberates through hundreds of livelihoods with devastating consequences. The entertainment and events industry here in Western Australia has been seriously damaged. Our company alone has had over 500 shows cancelled across multiple venues due to restrictions imposed. Millions of dollars in revenue have been lost. These cancellations have direct and severe consequences on the financial and mental health of thousands of people in our industry.
Mark 'Trogg' Svendsen
Director, Gig Power
The effect of COVID-19 on Gig Power and its staff has been profound. For 20 months, turnover dropped by 95% and the expected results where devastating, We lost more than 80% of our casual staff. Who could blame them! For Gig Power, government assistance all but ended with JobKeeper. Unfortunately, this meant that we became completely incapable of supporting our people. Our staff are good people who are dedicated and love the work they do and they all deserved better, much better. In Victoria, the work is just starting to come back and we are struggling to find people. With only 100 staff on our books, those still with us are now flat out. We hope to bring new people in and lure some of our older staff back, but it will be a long road to recovery for Gig Power and the people who work with us.

Details of Ambassadors and entertainment for each event will be announced shortly.  Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for updated artist and crew testimonials.
 
So please, Support the crew who make our dreams come true!
