The Downtown Fiction - Santa Cruz

The Downtown Fiction – Santa Cruz

Filmed in Los Angeles, CA, the video represents lead singer Cameron Leahy’s affinity towards skateboarding and the sentiment it holds in his life. “‘Santa Cruz‘ is a song about escape, whatever your vessel of choice may be. For me, it’s my skateboard,” explains Cameron. “It’s that place you go inside, a portal to your hopes and fears, memories and dreams. The video takes you on that journey.”

The Virginian four-piece kick off their 23-date North American tour today with Metro Station and The Ready Set, starting in Salt Lake City, UT at In The Venue. Tickets are available at TheOutsidersTour.com.

After ex-Final Fight drummer James Phillips decided to take a break from the hardcore tendencies of his previous band, he joined forces with Kyle Chadwick, Eric Findlay, and Michael Craver to create a sound that has been described as “a somber combination of indie / punk elements and overtones that inspire and uplift your average punk-listener”.

COMEDIC ROCKER THE SCHNYDE OPENS FOR BLACK OAK ARKANSAS IN CALIFORNIA

The Schnyde explains what people can expect during his set “I’m a hellraisin’, ‘make the audience have a kick-ass time’ kind of solo artist. I have over 30 years experience and build sets based on a repertoire of over 400 classic rock and country songs. My specialty would be the adult comedy numbers I do. I like to tell people ‘if those songs don’t fire’em up you better check’em for a pulse!’ Audience favorites include parodies like Bruce Springsteen’sHungry Hearts” as “Hungry Parts“; Nazareth’sWhiskey Drinkin’ Woman” as “Nookie Sellin’ Women“; and Moody Blues’ Nights in White Satin” as “Drag in White Satin.”

Black Oak Arkansas formed in 1963, and were one of only five bands ever to be personally signed to Atlantic Records by label founder, Ahmet Ertegun. The band enjoyed immense success including platinum and gold records. Fans of the band over the years have included Bill Graham, Wolfman Jack, First Lady Betty Ford and President Bill Clinton. One of their biggest hits is “Jim Dandy (To The Rescue)” which went gold. The band tours frequently and has shared the stage with Kiss, The Who, The Rolling Stones, King Crimson, Emerson, Black Sabbath, Foghat, Bad Company, Iron Butterfly, Grand Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, 38 Special, Credence Clearwater, Stepphenwolf, Allman Bros., The Doobie Brothers, ZZ Top, Chuck Berry, Lynyrd Skynyrd and countless others.

His influences include Steve Martin, Ron White, Rodney Carrington, Weird Al, Richard Pryror, past and present SNL cast members and classic rock hits. He’s shared the stage with acts like Confederate Railroad, Naked Karate Girls, Poison Overdose, Diversion, Sixxkiller, Stompbox 40, Ozark Revival, Missouri Mile, and Family Tradition. He’s done gigs with Black Oak Arkansas bass player George Hughen on several occasions and says “it’s always a wild and crazy ride with BOA! I’ve had a close and personal relationship with members of the BOA family for many long years now. These California dates will be a hoot!”

RESUMED – New signing and debut album ‘Alienations’

Founded in 2007 with the name Holy Terror, Resumed produced their first demo under the new moniker in 2009, which eventually led them to the completion of the band’s debut album ‘Alienations’. The following year saw Resumed focusing on their live activity and, in the meantime, signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of the album. ‘Alienations’ is a massive piece of old-school technical death metal, enriched with many musical contaminations coming from jazz, fusion, funk and latin music, progressive atmospheres and “virtuoso” playing. A set of 8 tracks, each song deals with a particular distortion of the human psyche. ‘Alienations’ was produced by the band’s drummer Filippo Tirabassi at FG Music Studio and in Resumed’s own studio in Sulmona, Italy. The album will be available starting from December 1st, 2014 on Bakerteam Records.

ts3b_croppedsmaller_1About Illuminate Me:
Illuminate Me is a 5-piece Punk / Metalcore act based across Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale, FL. The band originated as a beginning studio project under the brothers, Chris and Corey Jacobsen, to work on mixing and writing. Christopher Murray (ex-Sailing With Ghosts) contacted the band after hearing their music online. He added his own vocals to the recordings and after sending them to the group they knew they had found the right voice for their songs. The trio then released their debut EP titled Crawlspace digitally. This caught the attention of the South Florida music scene so the three decided to add more members and make it a full live band. Kevin Hatton and Anthony Burke then joined along and performed across all of Florida and the Southeastern states putting on a live show that would be deemed “intense” and “energetic” by their peers. Their debut LP I Have Become a Corpse was released via Tragic Hero Records on July 15th and features some of the best guest vocalists in the business such as Garret Rapp (The Color Morale), Jerry Roush (Glasscloud), and Landon Tewers (The Plot In You). You can catch Illuminate Me on tour throughout 2014.
