The Black Moods delivers raw, amplified rock and roll on new single Bad News

Born in the Arizona desert and reared on stages across North America, the band delivers a modern update of a timeless sound, breathing fresh life into a familiar mix of electric guitars, anthemic hooks, and percussive stomp. The Black Moods' three members — frontman/guitarist Josh Kennedy, drummer Chico Diaz and bassist Jordan Hoffman — aren't looking to reinvent the wheel. Instead, they're piling into a vehicle that's existed for decades, souping up the engine to suit their contemporary needs, and steering those wheels toward their own rock & roll horizon.

"Bad News" were recorded with Grammy Award-nominated producer Johnny "K" Karkazis, who flew to Phoenix and set up a makeshift studio in the band's own rehearsal space. There, in the same practice facility once shared by hometown heroes like the Refreshments, the band funneled the spirit and swagger of their live show into their most dynamic recordings to date. That live show — which The Black Moods sharpened with cross-country tours alongside the Doors' Robbie Krieger, Shinedown, Jane's Addiction, Eve 6, Cracker, and numerous other headliners — has always been one of the band's strongest selling points. Now, thanks to singles like "Bella Donna" (which also lends its name to the first wine in The Black Moods' wine series), The Black Moods' fury and fire onstage is matched by their electricity on record.

MadamAdam returns with Rest Of Your Life single

MadamAdam is an American rock band from Charleston, South Carolina, consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Scott Gould, bassist Kenny Varner, lead guitarist and vocalist Alan Price, and drummer Matthew Reindollar.  MadamAdam signed a record deal with Roadrunner Records in late 2009 and began recording their self-titled debut album with producer Skidd Mills (Sick Puppies, Saving Abel) at the Sound Kitchen in Nashville, TN.  That record released on April 5th, 2011 and it would produce the band's first radio single, "Sex Ain't Love", an upbeat and hard-rocking song about the restless sexual tensions of today's young adults.
The "Rite of Passage" album came out in 2015, followed by the singles "Dead men walking" and "Feed me to the wolves" in 2016 and 2017.
MadamAdam now returns with the new single "Rest of your life", but Palace of Rock suspect the band has listened a bit too much on Harry Styles´ "Sign of the times". The similarites are....well......see for yourselves.

Postcards From The Moon for fans of Yellowcard and Mayday Parade

Violin-driven pop punk quintet Postcards From The Moon are gearing up for the release of their new record Me Without You on April 5th. The sophomore EP from the self-proclaimed "Sad Boys of San Antonio" is mostly a reflection and acceptance of things we cannot change.

"While I was working on this song I came across a friend's story where she was talking about missing a friend," says vocalist Caleb Rangel. "It was literally the topic I was writing about, so I got the 'okay' to use some of her words."
Me Without You was produced Kevin W. Gates (Never Shout Never, Stephen Jerzak, The Ready Set).

New album Earth On Heaven from HOTT MT

After releasing their pristine new full-length Earth On Heaven, LA-based ethereal rock outfit, HOTT MT, premiered the video for the album’s lead single “Angel” today with LA Record. From the moment the organs and 80’s influenced synths of “Angel” kick in, the listener is transported to another world. Equal parts otherworldly and contemporary pop, “Angel” is a perfect example of the band’s ability to create challenging pop songs that simultaneously defy convention and fall serenely upon the ear. “Angel” is based off a book that Spooky’s grandfather wrote. He was a Rosicrucian and Anglican priest who wrote about spiritual psychic phenomena. Sonically, it holds to the mystical nature of the song’s topic.
