The Breaking Pattern – There are Roadmaps in Our Veins

Rock, Uncategorized

Dubbed by Huffington Post as ‘The Faces of Pheonix‘s Emo Rock Revival movement’, The Breaking Pattern are starting a revolution in young fans. Emo rock had been taking a downward turn after My Chemical Romance‘s departure from the music scene, and  their fan base had been waiting for something to fill this void.

The perfect mixture between Emo and Pop Punk, likened to Real Friends, The Wonder Years, Man Overboard the band are making waves. The new album was also engineered by Cory Spotts, having worked with other esteemed Arizona acts including The Maine, The Summer Set and  BlessTheFall so these guys are in good hands.

The album takes inspiration from a broken heart, with lead track ‘Let Love Go’ (teaser below) is a perfect mix of layering and creative flare. These guys have years of experience and it definitely shows within their technical ability.

The band are set to release a new video within the next few weeks, but you can check out their Youtube here.

Bentley Jones stuns with new EP, ‘The Prequel’

Dance

_MG_5300_1000xSong smith Bentley Jones returns with a glowing new release combining rock, pop and electronica to create a unique sound and style. This is the most streamline release you will hear this year and something you don’t want to miss out on.

Most artists would be content in achieving less than half of what Bentley Jones has managed to over his illustrious career. His first single debuted at #5 in the Japanese Charts without any promotion and he was the first British artist to release a Japanese album on a major label. He also recorded and performed with May J and achieved several chart topping dance hits for the likes of Madonna, will.i.am, Sia and Ariana Grande to name just a few!

Having been compared to David Guetta, will.i.am and Avicii, Bentley Jones is keen to cement his place as a leading performer and so far he’s been successful in that aim.  Jones has collaborated with Curtis Young who happens to be the son of Dr Dre, on a number of releases. His version of “West End Girls” was adored by Neil Tenant and even Lady Gaga follows him on Twitter!

Listen to ‘Follow You Down’ here: https://youtu.be/tQegrTURzYs

Although Bentley is loved by the industry and fans alike, he feels it is time for change, and looks to  explore the social conformities and pigeon holed genres that are associated with male artists in his music. Having come from a labour orientated family, Bentley knows the meaning of hard work and has strived his whole life to achieve success which he feels often contrasts with the manufactured pop stars of today’s world.

Bentley Jones is a very diverse character. Not only a musician and writer, Bentley was part of a string of sold out shows with the Birmingham Opera were he utilised his extensive dance talents to great acclaim. He is also a trained fitness instructor, gymnast and swimmer whilst also being a fantastic dancer and extraordinary singer.

His infectious pop laden hooks and variance in genres and styles makes Bentley Jones an instant hit. His new tracks ooze class and style whilst getting your head bobbing and feet tapping. It is a testament to his musical genius that he manages to adhere to the established genres that made him famous whilst also being able to incorporate new influences to create truly original sounds.

Melodically, sonically and lyrically Bentley Jones has created a flawless release which will appeal to people of all walks of life and tastes in music. The EP will be released on August 31st.

NEAL SCHON AND MUSIC THEORIES / MASCOT LABEL GROUP ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF VORTEX ON JUNE 22 IN EUROPE / UK AND JUNE 23 IN NORTH AMERICA

Rock

https://soundcloud.com/mascotlabelgroup/cd1-04-el-matador

Mascot Label Group’s Music Theories Recordings and Neal Schon have announced the release of Vortex on June 23.  The 2-CD all-instrumental album utilizes rock as its foundation, while also embracing elements of jazz, classical and world music in an 18-track stunning, sonically explosive collection of original compositions.  The release is dedicated to Schon’s best friend and wife, who serves as his true inspiration every day (Both “Lady M” and “Triumph of Love” were written for her, the latter of which he performed at their wedding on December 15, 2013).  Schon shares, “This is an evolutionary album for me.  I’ve always aspired to be a better player and push musical boundaries. And sure, I’ve sold 80-million records with Journey, and I’m proud of that, but this album is really me — all based on my guitar, which is my ‘voice.’ It’s bold. There’s love, and there’s definitely fire and an element of danger. And the energy level is off the hook.”

Yo Will Make You ‘Shake It’ With New Single!

Rock

Post-punk indie single set to hit on June 15th

Based in New Orleans – the birthplace of soul and jazz – Yo are a rock band not afraid to go against the grain. After travelling the globe and making homes in various corners of the USA and Europe, the music and song writing draws upon a wealth of inspirations and tales from the road.

The latest single taken from the album will be the hard hitting, punk laced track ‘Shake It’ – dripping in punchy bass-lines, quasi-spoken vocals and a distinctly trippy sensibility.

You can hear the track here:

Watch the video here:

‘Shake It’ as a track represents just one of the many facets and styles that make Yo such an interesting band. Each track is specifically influenced by the place, time and events of its conception, so pinning down a genre is something of a challenge.

CaptureThe single is taken from the album ‘Vagrancy’, an LP which demonstrates perfectly the versatile nature of Yo’s song writing. Songs such as ‘Shake It’ are seemingly built for the high energy of live performance, but other tracks on the album suit different environments. Whether chilling out at a festival, going for it on a club dance floor, jumping around at a live gig or relaxing in a local pub, there will be a song on this album which fits perfectly to every situation.

Altogether, it makes for a heady cocktail which is tough to pigeonhole, sewn together by the originality of vocalist Andre’s delivery.

Single ‘Shake It’ will be available from June 15th.
