Shaman’s Harvest Reveal New Single ‘THE COME UP’

The first release from anticipated album Red Hands Black Deeds

Out July 28th on Mascot Records.

Announcing their brand new studio album ‘Red Hands Black Deeds’, Shaman’s Harvest have released the first single ‘The Come Up’.

Liz Aiken at Bluesdoodles loved the upbeat driving rhythm that worked on many different levels, Pulled you through the music and open the door deep into the  lyrics. A melodic rock song that is the perfect antidote to the overdose of negativity that surrounds us. This s Rock n’ Roll that is happy to get a hand from the sunny Mowtown vibe. With its upbeat tones the swagger connects you to lyrics that delves into depression that affects so many people in the troubled and often confusing world of today.

“There’s so much negativity on social media today  a lot of people struggling with real issues and with where we’re at as a nation,” says singer Nathan Hunt. But, “The Come Up” is also an acknowledgment of the singer’s own battle with depression. “It’s therapeutic for myself,” he says. “It’s just about sometimes when you just can’t change shit, you got to realize you can’t mold everything in your life and you kind of just have to roll with the punches,” says Hunt, who overcame throat cancer in 2014 that could’ve derailed the band, but didn’t.

Having listened to the first single now waiting to hear the whole album. I have been led t o believe by the record label that Red Hands Black Deeds is a darker, visceral, and more layered sound than past repertoire. The album ranges from the ominous, haunting vibes of the title track prelude, “A Longer View,” “The Devil In Our Wake,” and “Scavengers” – which could fit just as easily on a horror film soundtrack as it does on this rock band’s album – to quieter, more vulnerable moments as heard on “Tusk and Bone” and “Long Way Home.” Lyrically, the band also ventured into new territory, taking on the current political, social, and economic struggles the USA is facing as a nation under the new administration. Red Hands Black Deeds touches upon the darker nature inside all of us,” says Hunt. “The whole record has a contrast and push and pull tension – a juxtaposition of good and bad or questioning what is right and wrong. The record ended up having a concept, though we weren’t intending it to,” says Hunt.

The writing of the record began in November 2016 at the time of the US presidential election, so it’s no wonder there are social and political undertones to many of the songs. “The tension in the record kind of speaks for itself. There’s a dark anxiety, tension-filled feeling that reflects what’s going on in the world,” says Hamler.

Their Mascot Records debut, Smokin’ Hearts & Broken Guns in 2014, garnered more than 33 million streams. The album’s “In Chains” peaked at #11 on the Media Base chart after a run of 22 weeks at Active Rock radio. It also spent over four months in the Top 10 of iTunes Metal Songs Chart. The song’s video has more than 3 million views on YouTube, while the band has a cumulative 8 million YouTube views.

So the count down begins as we re-listen to Smokin’ Hearts & Broken Guns and the sneak preview with the first single to be released ‘The Come Up’ from Red Hand Black Deeds.

The new single was mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder and Therapy) and is released on Friday 23rd June.

Says King King’s frontman and guitarist, Alan Nimmo, “Exile & Grace definitely has a rockier feel and sound to it. We are following our influences from the Classic Rock genre, Bad Company, Whitesnake and Thunder. We really set out to challenge ourselves with this album. We’ve stepped up the quality of songwriting and pushed ourselves physically in both performance and delivery!”

King King’s 2011 debut album “Take My Hand” was crowned Blues Album of the month in Classic Rock. Following this success, King King’s next album Standing in The Shadows was the highlight of Classic Rock Blues magazine’s Top 50 Albums of 2013. It’s no surprise then that King King won Best Album and Best Band at the 2012 and the 2014 British Blues Awards.

King King have played in all corners of the globe. From the Mahindra Festival in Mumbai, India, to Ottawa Bluesfest in Canada, and numerous festivals throughout the whole of Europe. One of the highlights of 2016 was a UK arena tour with the mighty Thunder, which included playing to over 10,000 people at Wembley Arena and a sell-out headline show on home turf in Glasgow.

Their headlining tour in 2017 took them to mainland Europe and the UK. The band are back with a vengeance in October 2017 to perform songs from their new album “Exile & Grace.”
King King are widely recognised as the UK’s hottest rock blues band, the band continue to push the envelope by performing unforgettable live shows with first class musicianship.

 

King King live shows are a not to be missed event – this is what Bluesdoodles has said:- 

Artrix, Bromsgrove – Reaching For the Light, Bluesdoodles said ..album of platinum proportions…..  Tonight we heard tracks that prove a studio album sounds even better when the music is live and you can see, feel and hear up close and personal. King King the quartet that has a cascade of sounds with layers of tonal textures ……….with the sparkling vocals of Alan, he can whip up a frenzy, make you cry, laugh and definitely makes you want to get up and dance it is the infection that is King King live.

The Globe, Cardiff – Crazy, yes, the room went crazy with this perennial favourite. Then far too soon it was time for an encore Let Love In and another opportunity for Choir Globe to get involved.

City Hall, Salisbury – This is a night many will talk about do you remember when South African Dan Patlansky and then the mighty King King took Salisbury by a Blues storm. Yes, King King Reaching Spiraling Heights in Salisbury tonight.

Besides his solo projects, studio and TV work, and teaching,  Stanton Moore  the drummer of Galactic, the funky New Orleans conglomeration now in its third decade of touring, and he still finds time to record and travel as a trio with David “Tork” Torkanowsky (keys) and James Singleton (bass).Besides his solo projects, studio and TV work, and teaching, he’s    Like Moore, Tork and Singleton are in high demand, so it takes some lead time to clear everybody’s schedule. The trio had a new record ready, they thought. But then, “a couple of days before we were supposed to start recording,” says Moore, Allen Toussaint passed.”

Toussaint’s sudden death on November 10, 2015 (in Madrid, far from home, of a heart attack, after playing a concert) shocked the city. The polymath New Orleans producer, songwriter, arranger, bandleader, pianist, singer, and all-around figure of elegance had been a vital, active presence in New Orleans since the 1950s.

The three musicians immediately shelved their planned album and went into creative hyperdrive. “We already had studio time booked, we couldn’t wait,” Moore recalls. “It’s not like we wrote out all these arrangements ahead of time. We were flying by the seat of our pants.”

As they began working up pieces of Toussaint’s vast repertoire, it quickly became a vocal album with guest singers. “As Tork likes to say,” Moore comments, “being a musician in New Orleans is like having the greatest musical toolbox at your disposal.” Supplementing their trio with some of New Orleans’s living legends – their friends — they re-imagined Toussaint’s songs, conceptualizing and building out an album on the fly.

The idea of guest on particular tracks was the obvious musical path to travel after Torkanowsky invited the first guest vocalist, Jolynda Kiki Chapman, best known in New Orleans for singing with her mother, Topsy Chapman.  The collaboration with a variety of artists created an album that captures teh spirit of New Orleans and the magic of Toussaint’s work.

 

With You in Mind: The Songs of Allen Toussaint is built on the livest grooves the trio could deliver. It was a bittersweet project for all concerned, celebrating the memory of someone whose living presence was so important. “I didn’t get to work with Allen as often as I’d have liked to,” Moore says, “but I did get to.” Their friendship went back twenty years. “Through the years we crossed paths a few times. The first time he played with us was also the first time we played the Saenger Theater,” referring to the 2,600-seat New Orleans landmark.

“Allen Toussaint wrote the soundtrack to New Orleans,” says MooreHe came out of an environment that no longer exists.

The level of talent and ability and artistry that he embodied – we won’t see this again.”

Sonny Landreth Announces First Live Album In 12 Years

Sonny Landreth Announces First Live Album In 12 Years

Sonny Landreth Announces First Live Album In 12 Years

Sonny Landreth Announces First Live Album In 12 Years‘Recorded Live In Lafayette’ contains two incredible live performances from the Slide Guitar virtuoso. 

Out June 30th via Provogue/Mascot Label Group. 

 

 

The King of Slydeco, Sonny Landreth returns with 2 unique live sets, one acoustic and one electric. ‘Recorded Live In Lafayette’ is Sonny Landreth’s first live album in twelve years.

After a dozen acclaimed albums, virtuoso slide guitarist and bandleader Sonny Landreth found himself at an artistic crossroads. He finally wanted to create the full-length acoustic collection his fans had long requested, but he was also itching to capture the sound of his stalwart electric trio augmented by a couple of his favorite collaborators. And the time was certainly right for an elastic, career-spanning double-live album.

So Landreth and his longtime friends decided to do it all. ‘Recorded Live in Lafayette’ is a 16-song opus that covers more musical ground than any single album ever could, as the singer and songwriter’s work stretches and twists across 93 minutes of full-band acoustic and electric bottleneck lightning.

The double CD and vinyl release on Provogue, which includes the most extensive acoustic set ever recorded by Landreth, opens with acoustic arrangements of the artist’s tunes dating back to the 1981 title cut of his debut album, ‘Blues Attack.’ “It gives you a chance to explore those songs in a different way,” Landreth says, describing the textures created by the intersection of Dave Ranson’s ukulele bass, Brian Brignac’s cajón, Steve Conn’s accordion and Sam Broussard’s acoustic guitar. “The familiarity is there,” he adds, “but I also wanted to turn those guys loose as much as possible.”

Disc 1: Acoustic

Blues Attack
Hell At Home
Key To The Highway
Creole Angel
A World Away
The High Side
Bound By The Blues
The U.S.S. Zydecoldsmobile

Disc 2@ Electric
Back to Bayou Tech
True Blue
The Milky Way Home
Brave New Girl
Ubresso
Soul Salvation
Walkin’ Blues
The One and Only Truth
Bluesdoodles says: The first released track the opening acoustic track from the album is a promise of a very special recording. Sonny, with his cool blue acoustic and glass slide, working his magic surrounded by his musicians. The Cajun pull of the accordion combined with the added depth of Bass Ukulele and second acoustic guitar. melodic acoustic layers are pulled together by the percussive beat of brush on an amp with drummer astride and cymbal. Power is within the soul of the music we are under a delightful Blues Attack

Colossus Huge Album Release from Triggerfinger

Colossus Huge Album Release from Triggerfinger

Colossus Huge Album Release from Triggerfinger

Colossus Huge Album Release from TriggerfingerAntwerp’s Triggerfinger will be releasing the strutting and swaggering new album ‘Colossus’ on 25th August via their new home Mascot Records.

The Belgian based trio (Ruben Block, vocals & guitar; Paul Van Bruystegem, bass; Mario Goossens, drums) have been exploding across Europe and have played an intensive 200 shows in the last 20 months, which also saw them support Muse on their sold out 50,000 capacity Stadium show in Aix-les-Bains, France and Park Live Festival in Russia.

Insatiable for the live stage they have opened for Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones (twice), Thin Lizzy, Clutch, Big Sugar and Therapy? They were asked to step in at Pinkpop to replace the mighty Foo Fighters who pulled out with Dave Grohl injured and they’ve sold out the 8000 capacity Vorst in Brussels, the Paradiso in Amsterdam an impressive 10 times as well as the 6000 capacity Heinkenen Music Hall. They also performed in the boxing ring during the Heavyweight title fight between Wladimir Klitschko (UKR) and Tony Thompson (USA) at Stade de Suisse in Bern, Switzerland which was broadcast across the world, including screens on Broadway – check out the performance here.

COLOSSUS, Triggerfinger’s fifth album and debut on Mascot Records sees the Belgian band adding new flavours to the mix.

“We wanted to get out of the rat race for a while”, Ruben Block admits. “The first step was doing a few collaborations with other musicians that would kick us out of our comfort zone. It made us look at our songs in a different way. The second step was building our own little studio where we could work and wail 24/7. All amps on 10 at two in the morning? No problem! But there was more to it than sheer volume. The previous albums were all built on roaring energy and the live interaction between the three of us. That was not our main concern anymore. This time the song would be king. ‘Anything goes’, that was our motto. Acoustic instruments, samples, keyboards, percussion, two bass guitars: as long as they served the song, we were happy.”

By now the question was, who could mold all this material into a new Triggerfinger album? Ever since the early nineties two names had popped up regularly on some of their favorite records. Produced by Mitchell Froom and engineered by Tchad Blake as a team and separately they’ve worked with variety of bands and artist from  Los Labos to Elvis Costello,  from  Bonnie Raitt to Pearl Jam.

After meeting with Mitchell Froom in June of 2016 the band set up camp in Froom’s home studio in Santa Monica for six weeks, and they hit it off instantly. The subdued producer quickly became a fourth band member, adding eerie sounds coaxed from his collection of vintage keyboards. Los Lobos’ saxophone giant Steve Berlin added his mojo on three tracks.

Colossus was the first song where the band worked with two basses. Block: “Ditching the guitar really opened up the groove, and the combination of two bass guitars was very intriguing, sonically. It was heavy, but fresh at the same time. Images and pieces of conversations flashed through my mind, like a collage, and over this monumental groove I began to chant: ‘Colossus! Colossus!’ It stuck.

This must be the boldest thing we’ve ever done”, Ruben Block says. “We’ve been fans of Mitchell Froom’s work for a long time, but working with your heroes can be a dangerous thing. Mitchell proved to be comforting and challenging at the same time. He opened so many doors for us, and with COLOSSUS he put us on track for the next few years.

Until the release date on 25th August 2017 you can watch the brand new video for Flesh Tight here:

Bluesdoodles has listen – very impressive huge driving riffs – definitely a  teaser that leads you intrigued as to what the rest of the forthcoming album will deliver. Flesh Tight definitely unveils a hint of the power of Colossus from Triggerfinger.  The video has a strutting audacity that the rhythm picks up as the music struts its stuff out of the speaker.

There used to be this [girl] that showed up in mini-skirts and halter tops and she and her friends would dance in front of the stage. There’d be two old drunks at the bar, the girls dancing in front of me – and those girls never looked like the ones in the video, that’s for sure.”

The Magpie Salute releasing ‘Omission’ a brand-new single from their forthcoming self-titled debut album. The Album’s release date is 9th June 2017 through Eagle Rock, Entertainment.

Bluesdoodles, listen to the single and thought Explosive. Opening with raw, loud guitar that leads into a swelling of rhythm from drums and bass. Then with a swirl of energy the singing Magpie joins the salute to Rock that rolls with verve and attitude. No wonder the four nights they played recently at Under The Bridge in London were a sell out and the music acclaimed full of Black Crowes and more. Now with Omission, no omissions here with this debut band original composition. Omission encapsulates the mood and sound that  is shaping the band.  which is also the new band’s sole original composition.

The band will be returning to play dates in Europe this summer before on embarking on a full US headline tour. Full list of dates here.

Who are The  Magpie Salute?

Rich Robinson and Marc  Ford will be former Crowes bassist Sven Pipien, drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. The group also boasts a fine cast of vocalists, including Robinson, Ford, lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), former Crowes singer Charity White and background singers, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen.

The new Album The Magpie Salute, release date 9th June 2017, produced by Crowes guitarist and co-founder Rich Robinson, the musically tight and expansive album recorded live-in-the-studio in front of an audience at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, New York, except for the brand-new studio track and single ‘Omission’.

The album carries special significance as it marks the last recorded work by Eddie Harsch, the late Black Crowes keyboardist whose signature sound and gentle soul are woven into The Magpie Salute.

There’s a musical freedom on the band’s debut album, reflecting the musicians’ wide-ranging roots in the diverse selections of tracks, with half of the 10 songs coming in at over seven minutes in length.

The new album offers fresh takes of The Black Crowes’ ‘What Is Home’ and ‘Wiser Time’ and new interpretations of songs ‘Comin’ Home’ by Delaney and Bonnie, Bobby Hutcherson’s ‘Goin’ Down South’, War’s ‘War Drums’, Pink Floyd’s ‘Fearless’, The Faces’ ‘Glad and Sorry’, Bob Marley’s ‘Time Will Tell’, (which The Black Crowes covered on their second album), and the traditional song ‘Ain’t No More Cane’.

Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening Out June 2017

Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall - An Acoustic Evening Out June 2017

Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening Out June 2017 – On January 21st and 22nd 2016 world-renowned platinum-selling and Grammy-nominated blues-rock, singer-songwriter and guitarist Joe Bonamassa performed two unique all-acoustic shows at the iconic Carnegie Hall in New York City. Both performances were filmed and made into “Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening”.

“Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening” is an evening of extraordinary music with new arrangements of favourite songs as well as brand new, never-before-heard songs.

The line-up is completed with Reese Wynans (piano), Anton Fig (Drums) Eric Bazilian (mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, saxophone, acoustic guitar, vocals), and three Australian backing vocalists, Mahalia BarnesJuanita Tippins and Gary Pinto.

Bonamassa comments: “Despite being among the most ambitious things I’ve done – I played with a 9 piece acoustic band – It came out great. It was a typical Joe freak show.”

Everyone knows the old saying about how to get to Carnegie Hall, but Bonamassa has truly lived that advice. His entire life and musical career had been practice for this moment, and a young blues-boy finally made good on a childhood dream of playing one of the most hallowed stages in the world.

This stripped-down, all-acoustic show allowed his fans a glimpse into his soul and presented a thrilling and musically dangerous spectacle akin to walking a tightrope without a net.

Joe says: “This is really a big thing for me, looking at the people who won it before me. Guitar players like Brian May, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather and Walter Trout are such an inspiration. I’m honoured by this.”
