Andrew Watt

Today Rock & Roll singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist ANDREW WATT announces he will release his solo debut EP, Ghost In My Head [John Varvatos Records/Republic Records], on October 9, 2015 at all digital retailers. The EP also includes the first single from Watt, title track “Ghost In My Head.”

Aurora – Debut album Faith/Breaker, out October 23

Aurora - Debut album Faith/Breaker, out October 23

Aurora

Culminating two years of work, metalcore Midlanders AURORA will release their debut album, Faith/Breaker, showing everybody what a crossover band can really do.

Containing seven tracks, eight if you get your hands on the physical CD because there is a hidden bonus track, the debut album Faith/Breaker, out on October 23 via In At The Deep End Records, is not the usual child of the Birmingham-based band. Instead of licking metal with its sensual tongue, the boys, now fronted by Rhys Whitehouse, formally of WolveXhys, reach out and grab it by the throat, and choke the living day lights out of it. Faith/Breaker is a much darker sister for AURORA, but it is one that has been welcomed by the five-piece and by their growing nationwide fan base.

Bassist Josh Hammond said the band had b...

No Historical Backspin charity event for this week, set up to help refugees

No Historical Backspin

“No Historical Backspin” is an initiative started 15 years ago by Monika Kruse to help the fight against xenophobia, racism and intolerance, as well as to provide aid to the victims of right-wing facism. As we have seen with the recent refugee crisis, there have been many brutal attacks against refugee camps.

This is why they have decided to take action and work in collaboration with Monika Kruse to throw a last minute party, with all revenues going to Berlin based refugee shelters, as well as to the Helpers for the Orient organization (Orienthelfer e.V.) in Lebanon. Helpers for the Orient (Orienthelfer e.V.) is an organization which aims to provide essential needs to very large refugee camps in Lebanon.
