BANG BANG ROMEO BREAKOUT WITH NEW SINGLE "SHAME ON YOU"

PR_PressRelease_cc.jpg

Today, England’s latest breakout band Bang Bang Romeo have launched with their brand new single ‘Shame On You’. Having just signed a global record deal with Eleven Seven Label Group, the female-fronted alt-rock trio are excited to share the next wave of music from their eagerly anticipated debut album, which is due for release this October via Five Seven Music.

With an electrifying chorus, ‘Shame On You’, continues to demonstrates a band on the rise. They explain, “’Shame On You’ is about two negative magnets constantly drawing themselves to one another. We know it's going to end in tears, waking up the morning after with a broken heart, but we're each other's doomed 'Ying and Yang', and that's just the way it is."

“Shame On You” follows Bang Bang Romeo’s previously released tracks ‘Chemical’ and ‘Natural Born Astronaut’, which earned them support across the pond from BBC Radio 1 and Britain’s Virgin Radio.  The tracks have also received critical acclaim from publications such as NME, The Independent, The Sun, tmrw magazine, and have gained themselves a fan in Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi.

Fronted by powerhouse vocalist Anastasia “Stars” Walker and featuring Ross Cameron (guitar) and Richard Gartland (drums), Bang Bang Romeo are a propelling force for female-fronted bands in a male dominated industry, while providing a strong, open voice for the LGBT community.

The band has become a force to be reckoned with, opening for rock and alternative mainstays such as the Foo Fighters and The Killers, touring extensively throughout the UK and appearing on festivals such as Reading, TRNSMT, The Great Escape, Y-Not and Liverpool Sound City Festival. 

Bang Bang Romeo’s buzz has also secured them a spot on the main stage at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival, where they were personally chosen to open the festival’s 50th Anniversary celebration ahead of headliner Kasabian.

Working with a host of chart-topping producers in New York and LA, Bang Bang Romeo are ready to prove they are one of the most exciting new artists on the scene in 2018.  The band are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album, due out this October.

JUST LOUD RELEASES "GHOST"

JL2.png

A bold and intriguing new voice is upon us… get ready for the brilliance that is Just Loud. PRESS HERE to watch the video for his new song “Ghost,” out today. A powerful track that questions how humans deal with love and loneliness, “Ghost” showcases Just Loud’s striking vocals and fearless originality – immaculately blending pop and modern R&B with in-your-face 80’s rock spirit. The video, made in collaboration with artist Aleia Murawski (who was featured in Petra Collins’ In Search of Us show last year at NYC’s MoMa), places Just Loud’s sense of artistic grandeur and enigmatic presence front and center.

“The first line is ‘I talk too much or not at all,’ and that’s me, 100%,” explains Just Loud. “I’m very shy and outspoken — a full Gemini — and that balance is hard when it comes to being in a relationship with someone. Can you handle all of me? Would you go ghost on me once you found out who I am?”

Just Loud will release his 4-track debut EP entitled Episode 1 on June 15 via Five Seven Music, produced by Dave “Sluggo” Katz (Neon Trees, Katy Perry). With an impressive range and sense of introspection, Episode 1 is ultimately a document of Just Loud making personal discoveries in real time — expressing himself, his pain and glories, through his compelling and impactful art. On EP opener “Electrified,” Just Loud ruminates on growing up and parties of days gone by over a swaying framework. The video has garnered half a million views in just one week (PRESS HERE to watch). “Angels and Demons” is a soaring, soulful rocker, and Just Loud’s cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” proves his creative magic.

Born in Virginia, Just Loud’s adolescence largely revolved around his small country church. His rebellious and inquisitive nature, however, led him to be cast away from the church at 15 – leading him to pursue music. Now, Just Loud is poised to be his own disruptive force in music in 2018.

INTRODUCING: JUST LOUD

Bursting into the global collective consciousness today with his debut track “Electrified”, Just Loud emerges as a truly unique artist, representing an immaculate blend of alternative and pop.

The genre-crossing, fearlessly bold sonic craftsman pulls from myriad influences to bring his musical vision to life: “I always say I have voices in my head where I collect sound,” says Just Loud while talking about the recording sessions.

“Sometimes I’d feel Bowie, sometimes I’d feel Gnarls Barkley—I was using sound and music, not just one particular artist,” adds producer Dave “Sluggo” Katz (Neon Trees, Coheed and Cambria).

Electrified” — out today on Eleven Seven Label Group’s Five Seven imprint — is Just Loud’s introductory offering. The pulsating, high-energy song is already seeing airplay with LA’s Alt 98.7,  New York’s Alt 92.3, San Francisco’s 105.3, and Dallas’ 103.7 and gaining praise from industry heavyweights.

“When something is so impactful that it cuts through the clutter it elevates everyone’s standards and that’s what we aim to do with Just Loud,” explains Eleven Seven Label Group CEO Allen Kovac on his decision to sign the artist.

The video, directed by Max Hliva (Childish Gambino and Rae Sremmurd) showcases the effervescent, neon dreamstate induced by the song. WATCH IT HERE

Throughout “Electrified” Just Loud ruminates on the parties of days past over a tart synth line so infectious that it will lodge itself in your head for days. Underneath the swaying framework and ebullient vocals—reminiscent of electro-rocking contemporaries like Passion Pit and Foster the People —lies some serious truths about growing up and personal maturation.

Figuring out who you are is an essential facet of life on Earth, and through his music Just Loud makes such discoveries in real time—expressing himself, his pain and glories, through his strikingly impactful art. “I’m saying all the things I wish I could’ve said years ago,” he explains. “Imagine a loner not having a voice, and all of the sudden they just feel like talking.”

Electrified” is the opening salvo of such a conversation—and it’ll leave you wanting to hear what he has to say next, too.

Council Promo pic.png

NBC has licensed “Rust to Gold” by new Alternative-Pop band, Council, for use throughout the Winter Olympics.  First featured during the opening ceremonies and broadcasted to over 350 million viewers worldwide, this determined band of brothers are going for the gold, having their talent showcased on one of the world’s largest stages.

“Rust to Gold” was recorded at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles.  The song was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Justin Gray (Mariah Carey, John Legend) and ten-time Grammy-nominated mixer Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers) with additional production by Dave and P.  “Rust to Gold” has already garnered over five million streams across all streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music.

Council hails from Baldwinsville, NY where they grew up working on a farm during the day. As the band began honing their craft at night in their family barn - their commitment to music started scoring them big wins. Prior to their signing to Five Seven Music (part of Eleven Seven Label Group), Council established themselves as one of the top up-and-coming bands to watch, gaining both local and national attention for their unique sound and charismatic performances, opening for bands such as The All American Rejects and The Kooks, as well as playing numerous successful shows at New York City mainstays such as Citi Field. 

The official music video for “Rust to Gold” - directed by Ryan Ewing (Dirty Heads, Eve, JET) and Ben Guzman (Kehlani, Asking Alexandria, Lupe Fiasco) is out now. “Rust to Gold” is now available on all streaming services.

Dirty Heads Launch Nostalgic Music Video for "Celebrate"
