News: As A Rival DROP ANTHEMIC SINGLE “WHAT WE GOT” & ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM RELEASE NOVEMBER

As A Rival are back – and they’re here to kick the door down with their second full length album, ‘Griefers’ – which will see its release into the world on Friday November 2. Today, they are heralding its imminent arrival into the world with anthemic new single ‘What We Got’. Pre-Orders for the album will go live this Friday September 21, with the single available for streaming and purchase same day. All Pre-Order links and streaming options will be at http://asarival.com.

The new single What We Got blasts away from As A Rival’s usual vein of punk rock showing a maturity and diversity in their songwriting, delivering a power punk ballad that will hit even the hardest of hearts. It’s about when someone you love is struggling through a dark time in their lives, holding onto the tiniest of threads, and doing everything possible to comfort them through it. It is an anthem about holding on to the good around you when you’re almost ready to give in to the flames.
Pete Cerni, vocalist for the band, said that “There are times when we are tested – things that we love, that we live for are put to the sword and we’re left to question ‘is it all worth it’? It’s hard not to focus on the negative. It’s hard enough when it’s your own fight, but watching it happen to someone close to you can be debilitating and make you feel helpless. What We Got addresses the internal struggle that comes with failed attempts to try and comfort those in need.” 

‘Griefers’ is a gaming term used to describe those who play alongside you only to turn against you, cause you pain and hinder your progress. The same can be used to describe the people we let into our lives. Pete explains, “We go through life meeting people. Connecting with them. Let them in, share with them our passions, our dreams. Some people glide in and out naturally, but others will smile at you while they fight to destroy everything you’ve built.” ‘Griefers’ encompasses the hurt you have to face to crawl out of the mess and deal with the aftermath. Life is about the fight for what you believe in. ‘Griefers’ acknowledges these trying times – the times when you do fall but that it’s ok, as long as you climb even higher as a result.

Recorded at Homesurgery Recordings, the album was produced by Tom Larkin (Shihad) with Sam K Sproull and Jon Grace. The sessions started out with a challenge – complete 50 demos within a 2 month period. A challenge that was met with gusto. 50+ songs later having explored a myriad of styles touched on in previous releases, these sessions enabled As A Rival to hone their craft and evolve their sound. The result: a 12 song punk rock deluge, tackling themes of betrayal, deceit and defiance

‘Griefers’ pays homage to a number of influences and genres culminating into what is As A Rival’s best release to date. From the raw gallop of lead single, ‘Bring Out The Dead’ to the power and grace of ‘What We Got’. The anthemic hooks of ‘Head In The Clouds’ to the burst of energy that is ‘Coup De Main’. The album is full of riffs, hooks and sing-along choruses that keep you coming back for more.

They have seamlessly collected the promises from their debut album ‘By Design’ and set them on fire, constructing a new sound from the ashes. ‘Griefers’ is not just a collection of songs, but a statement, a stamp in time outlining the challenges that have landed in their path. However, instead of dwelling on the issues and letting it hold them back, it’s time to let go. They decided to let the past die – kill it if you have to. Pete Cerni (vox/guitar) and Nathan Wheatley (drums) are joined by Johnny Beech (guitar) and Paul Trevorrow (bass) to deliver a powerfully polished punk rock album. After the tease of previous releases, what remains is a certainty and drive that screams that they are the rival they have always threatened to be.

Pre-Order As A Rival’s new album ‘Griefers’ from this Friday September 21, for release Friday November 2.

News: SCOTT IAN Legendary Founding Father of Thrash, Author & Rock Royalty Announces One Man Riot! Spoken Word Tour – Australia, Sept 2018

This is the story of a Jewish kid from Queens who started a heavy metal band…Thrash Metal inventor, metal/rap cross over initiator, non fiction & comic book author, horror movie expert, TV star, son-in-law to Meat Loaf… shall we go on? 

One of the metal worlds most recognisable, praised and iconic figures, Scott Ian, will be in Australia for a series of spoken word events this September! The co-founding rhythm guitarist of ‘Big 4’ legends Anthrax practically invented Thrash Metal and in a career spanning nearly four decades remains as vital as ever.

Scott’s rapid fire riffs, unmistakable crunchy tone and incisive lyrics continue to spawn generations of new bands who wear Anthrax’s influence on their tattooed sleeves. 

Now, fans can hear and see Scott on stage in an entirely different way, behind a mike, telling wildly entertaining road stories about the people he has met, crazy experiences he has had and all the mischief, shenanigans and back stage antics he and his peers have gotten into over the past 38 years of touring the world!

 In Scott’s own words, “One Man Riot is what I call my talking show because the pretension of saying I am doing a ‘Spoken Word’ show is too much to bear. This isn’t a poetry reading. This isn’t an evening of sensitive discourse. It’s an evening of ridiculous truth.  
It’s me talking (swearing) about this insane life I’ve led over the last 38 years, the people I’ve met and the shit that’s happened. And when I’m done swearing, you can ask me anything you want, the floor is yours.  Cheers my friends.

Bursting onto the scene in 1984 with Fistful Of Metal, Scott and Anthrax have sold over 10 million albums, receiving multiple Gold and Platinum awards, been nominated for a bunch of Grammy’s and continue to write career besting albums to this day! 2016’s For All Kings debuted in the US Billboard Top 200 at number 9 and the worldwide charts at number 8!  While widely known as the face of Anthrax, Scott is also a constant and extremely recognizable figure in the worlds of horror, comics, movies and television. 

What does Scott get up to? Well…. In the early 90’s it was Scott’s idea to cover Public Enemy’sBring The Noise which brought the two worlds of rap and metal together like never before and saw Chuck DFlavor Flav and the rest of PE touring the world with Anthrax,  kicking the asses of expectations and stereotypes everywhere they went. Scott also takes no credit good or bad for any musical genre that came after… Scott hosted the Rock Show on VH1 for a year and got to interview Ozzy Osbourne while dressed as Gene Simmons for Halloween.

That went well. In 2009 Scott wrote Lobo: Highway To Hell for DC Comics and wrote his second series for DC featuring The Demon which is being scheduled for release. Scott and Anthrax are part of the iconic ‘Big 4’ metal bands alongside MetallicaSlayer and Megadeth. Scott had the highlight of his career in Anthrax when The Big 4 played Yankee Stadium in NYC on Sept 14, 2011.  

That day was also officially proclaimed Anthrax Day in the Bronx. Suck that everyone in high school. Scottʼs autobiography Iʼm The Man The Story of That Guy from Anthrax was released October 14, 2014, and with all modesty, it got great reviews everywhere! Even the New York Times book reviewer liked it. You should read it.


 Scottʼs second book Access All Areas – Stories From A Hard Rock Life was released in December of 2017. The book is comprised of twenty-three ridiculous stories from Scottʼs life. If you hate laughing, this book is not for you.


 Scott has taken his stories on the road doing Spoken Word tours of the U.S., Canada, the U.K. & Europe to critical acclaim. More importantly, the people that paid to see the shows really liked them. Scott hosts the horror FX show Bloodworks for the Nerdist Channel. Scott got to be a walker on season 5 episode 12 of The Walking Dead attacking Rick Grimes until he got a metal pole through the head by Rickʼs son Carl. 
 

For the new season of Bloodworks, Scott recently filmed an episode from the set of  Game of Thrones. Now he can retire. Scott is also happily married to Pearl Aday, daughter of Meat Loaf and they are in a band together called Motor Sister. Scott and Anthrax are currently on the Slayer farewell tour in the U.S. Scott hopes this farewell tour lasts about ten years.


 Scott thanks everyone for being cool.   Come and listen to Scott tell his legendary tales (for several hours) at one of the venues below Monday, September 24: Dunstan Play House, AdelaideWednesday, September 26: Goldfields Theatre – MCEC, MelbourneSaturday, September 29: Metro Theatre, Sydney Monday, October 1: The Tivoli, Brisbane Tickets on sale Thursday, July 5 Official Event Pagewww.dinnerforwolves.com/one-man-riot  VIP Packages Available From www.scott-ian.com

27 Listicle Series: The Fix Ups

Top Five Antidotes to make your life better by The Fix Ups 

Hey! we are The Fix Ups, and we would like to share our top 5 antidotes to a better life! 
Writing and playing music is something we are immensely passionate about, but there are certainly loads of ups and down you can experience in the musical journey. Read on to see what we are inspired by in life, and what we think is important for longevity and health as an artist, individual, and band member. It’s not all go go go; sometimes you gotta take it slow slow slow!!

Dinner

We trailed out yesterday for a Sunday roast. It was so good to have dinner together after a hard days work. It gives you a chance to catch up on each others lives, and you also find out things you wouldn’t normally discuss at rehearsals.For example. Marlene found out that Santa gave Ash a pony for her 5th birthday, and Ash found out that Marlene was married! Throw your friends in there to spice up the night, complacency and monotony becomes so boring!

Group Holidays.
Life can get really busy, and catching up with people can be quite hard. We like to plan weekends away with a group of friends to the hot springs or the beach. It’s a real bonding moment between people. Last time we did this, Nikos forgot the keys to his grandparents holiday house, and we had time to kill on the beach. Serendipitously, our mate Yolanda serenaded us with some classic Aussie tunes she had to sing for Australia day. It’s amazing how fun a game of celebrity heads or charades after dinner with a few glasses of wine can be!

  1. Musicians Wellbeing, physical, RSI, play with no stress in muscles, play like a buddhist monk

Playing music can be super taxing on the body, and every member of The Fix Ups have had RSI problems. In the song, It’s Your Life the piano part is fast an repetitive. It has to be played in a clear and relaxed way, like a Buddhist monk on sedatives..See your doc, do some yoga, and go for a swim! Talk to your bandmates about it; often it starts in the mind. The last thing you want is a body that doesn’t do what you want it to do anymore!

  1. Having a industry mentor, how to do stuff? Exciting, reading

Having a mentor in your industry is super important. This person can be a fantastic role model, that can help draw out the amazing creative person you often have trapped inside you! The Fix Ups members all have mentors, whether it be life coaches, teachers at university, or family and friends. They can also show you how to be a ethical, awesome human being at the same time!

  1. Go to gigs, stay on the scene, keep inspired, go to gigs

In the immortal words of James Brown “Stay on the Scene!”, or in other words, go to gigs! These can also be art shows, photography exhibitions, whatever inspires you to do what you do best. The Fix Ups regularly go to their muso friend’s gigs, which is both fun, but also super inspiring and informative. Introduce yourself to people, even if you’re frightened of doing so. The only way to grow yourself is to put yourself in uncomfortable situations. Live life passionately, because fear rarely has dire consequences.

27 Listicle Series: Motor Ace

It’s 2001, you’re driving home from work, flicking through the radio stations, and Five Star Laundry by Motor Ace is being played on triple j, Triple M and a bunch of other stations in between. Then, as you walk in the door, the television is blaring and it’s Motor Ace again, with their iconic track Death Defy reaching an even wider audience as the theme song for the beloved Australian television series The Secret Life Of Us. 

Five Top Aussie Bands by Motor Ace

There are too many great Aussie bands to choose from so I am going to narrow down on the first bands I loved growing up.

God: My Pal by God is an amazing 5 note earworm of a riff that never gets old. Recorded in 1987 by four hairy 16 year olds from the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, My Pal reminds me of many weekends spent haunting AuGoGo and Gaslight Records in the city as a 14 year old.

You Am I: I first saw You Am I at an underage show in a community centre in Croydon. I was gobsmacked to hear the opening chords of Belin Chair pumping through the big old PA as Tim windmilled his guitar, and a stage diver landed directly on my head. I caught the train home with a rooted neck, ringing ears and a huge smile. We went on to play with You Am I on several occasions and spent months hanging out in Sing Sing Studios while we each recorded albums in adjacent sound rooms. Hourly Daily is still one of my favourite records.

The Saints: Stranded was on Rage high rotation in 1989, often getting played at around 3am in the morning to thousands of teenagers in their parents’ living rooms, wishing they were somewhere else. The clip features the band playing in a busted up abandoned house that look like the set of a snuff movie, The Saints – Stranded, crudely painted across one wall in blood red. I love the moment Chris Bailey steps up to the mic taking two big tokes of his ciggie before launching into the opening lines – bad attitude personified! It’s so simple, grubby and punk. Pretty sure it was a decisive factor in starting my first band.

Hard-Ons – I love the Hard-Ons nursey rhyme like simplicity. Two chord wonder pop songs set to wall of sound chainsaw guitars. Where did she come from is still a killer song.

Died Pretty: I think Died Pretty could have been huge if they’d been in the right place at the right time. My favourite DP track is Everybody Moves Away. Insistent bass line, moody organs, oddly energetic drumming, and Peno’s maudlin droning… Perfectly captures what it felt like being a teenager experiencing that first lash of hormonal depression.  I love it.

Fast forward almost two decades and Motor Ace’s hoards of fans no longer have to wait for that highly anticipated reunion, because in March and April of 2019, the band we all love will embark on a national tour to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the band’s inception, kicking off in Adelaide at The Gov on March 29, then moving through Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and finishing up in Melbourne at the renowned venue 170 Russell on April 12.

3. Thundercat, killer (bass) guitarist, smooth vocals, original look, chilled vibeI was recently introduced to the force that is Thundercat but he is on my list. A killer (bass) guitarist, honey smooth vocals, and has a chilled vibe. Didn’t think anyone could pull of pink dreads until I saw this man.


4. Vince Gill, his cover of “How Great Thou Art” with Carrie Underwood got me shook to the core.Vince Gill is an incredible artist and does the most beautiful collaborations! His cover of “How Great Thou Art” with Carrie Underwood got me shook to the core.

Live Review: Flight Facilities

Live Review: Flight Facilities

Forum Melbourne

14 September 2018

Danny Harley aka The Kite String Tangle starts things off tonight with a surging electronic pulse. He stands at the opposite side of the stage to his drummer and together they create an explosive sound of beautifully crafted atmospheric beats.

The talented singer, songwriter and producer knows how to get the crowd moving as he plays his delicately crafted danceable tunes filled with house-infused bass-lines and soothing vocal features. The dance floor quickly fills up for some of his biggest tracks including the hard-hitting ‘Selfish’ and the ultra funky ‘This Thing We Got.’ Long time fans are pleased to hear old favourite ‘Arcadia’, which has a slow glimmering start and crescendos into a huge emotional chorus. For something different, Harley ends his set with his epic remix of Fatboy Slim’s iconic track ‘Praise You’ adding his own beats and samples to propel the track to new heights.

The crowd is absolutely buzzing with excitement by the time Flight Facilities touch down on the stage. The lights flicker and their logo illuminates the podium where our pilots Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell are positioned behind a console of controls, ready to elevate us high into the sky. Tonight is the last show of their current tour and they let us in on a secret that it’s also being filmed for Triple J’s Live at the Wireless, so we’re encouraged to party as hard as possible. Owl Eyes takes the lead on all the female vocals tonight and her vocals are flawless. The singer’s stage presence is second to none and enhances the live show as Gruzman and Lyell smoothly navigate us through all of their hits.

Other notable guest features include Ric Rufio who lends his sleek, soulful vocals for the feel good track ‘Sunshine’ and Dustin Tebbutt who performs their latest track ‘All Your Love’. Tebbutt starts off the song on his acoustic guitar with soft vocals and then the song builds up to an explosive, emotive chorus with a thumping electronic production. A new auto-tuned, electro-heavy dance track is added to the in-flight entertainment to create a powerful burst of turbulent energy and they take us back in time with a nostalgic disco cover of Jamiroquai’s ‘You Give Me Something’.

‘Stranded’ brings us back down to Earth for an encore with a duet from Owl Eyes and Rufio and then we light our phones up during the mesmerising track ‘Clair De Lune’. Their biggest hit ‘Crave You’ is thought to be the last, however they invite all the guest vocalists, support acts and even their truck driver Dave, on to the stage for one last boogie along to Mylo’s ‘Drop The Pressure’ and the timeless party anthem makes us want to stay and dance all night long.
