Dutch rockers F.U.A. sign with Wormholedeath and reveal "Socially Transmitted Disease" album release date
Dutch Rockers F.U.A. are pleased to announce that they have signed with WormHoleDeath for the release of their debut album "Socially Transmitted Disease"
"Socially Transmitted Disease" has been recorded and mixed at Realsound Studio.
"Socially Transmitted Disease" will be released on 28 September 2018 via Wormholedeath / Aural Music Group / The Orchard worldwide and on 28 November 2018 via Disk Union Distribution in Japan.
The album will be available for pre order on 14 September 2018.
"Hi we are F.U.A. As you probably know our debut album ''Socially Transmitted Disease'' is about to be released via Wormholedeath. We have been working on it for almost three years. With ''Socially Transmitted Disease'' we want to send a warning out into the world against the dangers of social media cause unfortunately a lot of people are addicted to their phones and computers. The digital drugs we use daily has taken our social lives in a stranglehold. We ourselves have fallen victim to the addicting digital world. So we decided to fight against it. The album containing 14 songs is a mixture between what we like to hear in music : raw powerful emotion and also a lot of fun! We hope that you all enjoy our music. We can't wait to see you rock at one of our shows! Cheers!"
F.U.A. is a Dutch light and heavy punk creation of four friends who are all self-taught musicians. The band started by accident when drummer Sander Pietersen was practising with his friend at a local bar. That same day singer Daphne De Heij walked past and interested by the sounds, entered the bar. It did not take long before she grabbed a microphone and busted out some self-written lyrics. Later F.U.A. was fully formed when bass player Robbert Van Der Bijl and eventually guitarist Mitchell Verschoor joined the group. The band started creating their own songs while simultaneously learning to play as a band.
When F.U.A. had just one song they immediately performed it live without second thought. The audience really liked the way the band presented itself. Generally having a good time and doing crazy on stage with easy to remember sing-along songs. F.U.A then quickly started to grow as a small underground punk-rock band. The demo released in 2015, while in low quality, was immediately sold-out. Armed with their own style F.U.A. took over the Dutch city of Purmerend as the go-to punk-rock band. With this newly gained popularity the band travelled all-over The Netherlands to perform on many venues, bars and festivals. Mitchell Verschoor joined the band at a later stage and started writing songs specifically for Daphne’s singing.
It proved very successful after the song ‘Cheers’ became a major turning point for the band. Daphne and Mitchell are mostly behind the lyrics of the songs. This means that alot of different views are taken into the music. F.U.A was also never shy about themselves and posted all kinds of video’s online. Some were funny moments while others were low-quality videos of shows. They just wanted to share all the good times with the world. Because of this online presence F.U.A. got approached by Italian music producer Corvi Wahoomy, from Realsound Studios and Carlo Bellotti, owner at record label Wormholedeath, in 2016. Bellotti asked the band for a newer demo. Agreeing to Bellotti’s request the band spend a lot of time recording this demo, but the sound was still low quality.
Still Bellotti saw a lot of potential in F.U.A. as he fell in love with the energy and sound of the band, especially the song "Cheers" . He wanted the band to record a fully fledged album with Corvi at RealSound Studio in Langhirano, Italy. The band, again agreeing, started writing an entire year and finally entered the studio in January 2018. Working together with talented producers Coruzzi Christian and Corvi Wahoomy, the fruit of the band’s labours have paid off. The album, containing 14 songs, was exactly what everyone had envisioned. With many influences in all kinds of rock. It's a fast and heavy creation with an unique style unheard of in the world of punk. F.U.A. is planning to release this album on a worldwide scale on the 28th of September, 2018 via Wormholedeath.
Ashes Collide is an alternative rock band from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Their music is inspired by 2000’s American rock, based on memorable guitar riffs, simple harmonies and powerful female vocals. While this style certainly attracts lots of fans, the group are in constant search of their own unique niche within the genre.
The band was created in spring 2015 by Nikita Frolov (guitar) and Alexahder Kolchin (drums) and completed in early 2016 by Roman Vtorov (bass) and Marfa Savchenko (vocals/lyrics). Since 2016, Ashes Collide have quickly gained popularity in their hometown and neighboring cities, performing many live shows. Their first single Ashes Collide, self-released in 2016, caused a lot of interest in the local rock communities and gigs in Finland and Estonia during 2017/2018 have marked the beginning of the groups planned global expansion. The latest work of the band, the EP First Collide, which was recorded in 2017, will be released worldwide later in the year on Sliptrick Records.
Ashes Collide are now working on new album as a follow-up to First Collide and booking future gigs that will allow them to express and show their developing style plus some significant changes to the bands sound.

Black Satellite is celebrating this Friday the 13th with the premiere of the aggressive and hard-hitting music video for "I Don't Wanna Be Me." Premiering exclusively with Loudwire today, this song was recorded as a tribute to Type O Negative and lead singer Peter Steele leading up to the anniversary of his death tomorrow. On the track, singer Larissa Vale shares "We were inspired by the song conceptually, and wanted to take creative liberty in really making it our own. People may say prematurely that 'it doesn't sound like the original,' but it really sounds like us as a band, and that, we are truly proud of. The emotional context of the song remains intact and we hope that fans will enjoy this version as much as we did making it."
The video features drumming sensation Casey Cooper, and is the second part of this project, alongside the previously released video for "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend" On the project, Black Satellite shared "We wanted to release these songs as a tribute to the legacy that Pete left behind. These are big shoes to fill, literally, and we saw it not only as a challenge, but a way for us to experiment and grow artistically. There is definitely something to be said in his music, and covering the songs was our way to recognize that and tip our hats to him." Both tracks will be available across all DSPs tomorrow, April 14th.
Called a "rock band beyond definition" by idobi Radio, Black Satellite have been crafting mind-blowing alt-rock for over six years. Comprised of Larissa Vale (vocals) and Kyle Hawken (guitar), the duo came together in their hometown of State College, Pennsylvania and quickly formed a loyal bond that created the foundation for Black Satellite.
Black Satellite was named one of Alternative Press' "12 Bands You Need to Know" sharing that "Frontwoman Larissa Vale offers an aggressively elegant vocal range that pairs perfectly over Kyle Hawken's melodic guitar riffs and instrumental work. Each song from Endless effortlessly shows off the duo's provocative sound and captivating alt-rock essence." Additional support from the band from outlets like Billboard, Loudwire, New Noise Magazine, Alternative Press and more have continued to validate and solidify Black Satellite's place in the rock world.
Mastered by Ted Jensen (Muse, Marilyn Manson, Deftones), the band's debut album Endless paints an almost cinematic landscape, with each track revealing a new facet of the duo's style and complexity. Pairing influences ranging from Alice in Chains to Gojira with personal, emotional experiences and stories, Black Satellite have crafted a unified body of work that showcases their undeniable range. Vale remarked that with Endless, "We not only confronted our fears head-on, but were completely immersed in them."
Mallory Knox have released their first single as a four-piece, following the news that vocalist Mikey Chapman had departed the band last week. ‘Black Holes’ sees bassist Sam Douglas step up to vocal duties. He says in relation to ‘Black Holes’: “I think it shows a completely different side to my voice. In taking on lead vocals, that was something I wanted to be able to show from the get go. It's a song we've played at rehearsal for a while and we're all really excited about integrating it into the set.
Continuing to speak on the lyrics, Douglas says “It's all too easy in this day and age to post every single thought we have online, and at times too much can be said. Everybody seems to be so quick to have an opinion on something, which they often know nothing about, and I struggle to defend how much negativity is spouted online. We really wanted to make sure that emotion was captured in the recording and our producer Adrian Bushby really brought out the bare bones of the song in the best way. It’s a conscious effort to go back to basics. We really want the listener to be able to hear every part being played and I feel we've achieved that.”
‘Black Holes’ received its first airplay on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 Show last night and Mallory Knox are all set to take their revamped line-up on the road for a clutch of headline dates in April, as well as festival appearances at Selby Pop Punk Pile-Up and Camden Rocks.

Alpha Omega Management is extremely glad to announce the signing of the Croatia's alternative rock metallers Nord!
Nord - formed in October 2013 - is hailing from Rijeka, Croatia. The meaning of the name reflects the idea of being lost in the sonic wilderness, but also their hopeful and positive attitude towards music and life. The band's sound is a blend of dark textural ambience, massive guitar riffs and emotional lyrics with a very personal feeling. Nord's debut album, "Play Restart" (released April 21, 2017 via Geenger Records), is all about finding a clean, new start in life. Nord is for the fans of Faith No More, Soundgarden, Helmet, Tool, Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, Deftones etc.
Comments the band on signing:
"We were all very excited about 2018 in general since we planned a lot of great things to come for our band - recording of our second album, many shows ahead all around Europe and making some new songs for 3rd album already.. But we didn't expect that things will get even better. The second day of 2018 started with (almost accidentally) getting in touch with Alex from Alpha Omega, and after a couple of great talks and after discussing all possibilities with band members we decided that this collaboration would be a great thing and a step forward for Nord! So far this decision has already proven to be a good one since we just got booked for a great tour in March (more information will be revealed very soon), and that is just the start we're sure. We are very positive about the Alpha Omega crew and hopefully we'll achieve some great things together and of course have much fun in the process. World, Alpha Omega is bringing us to YOU so get ready to rock out with NORD!! ?? ??"
Alpha Omega Management adds:
"We are very happy to welcome Nord to our family! These guys have the right attitude and desire to work hard to achieve their goals and conquer new territories! Soon we will announce their headliner tour, so check out this band and stay tuned, you will not regret it!"

Toronto-based alternative rock band Selfish Things have announced their EP Vertical Love, out 16th March. After a string of successful single releases, earning notable positions on playlists such as New Noise on Spotify, this will be the band’s first full body of music for fans since they started in 2015. Fans can pre-order the EP here.
Co-produced by James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Dashboard Confessional) and lead singer-songwriter, Alex Biro, Vertical Love serves as Biro’s full transition from singer-songwriter to an all-out alternative rock band with Selfish Things.
“‘Vertical Love’ came into being after what was one of the most tumultuous periods of my life. It’s a body of work that’s representative of a time when I was struggling to eliminate my nihilistic outlook and replace it with something that was innately more sustainable and emotionally fruitful. I’ve always had a tendency to contemplate whether or not we choose the path we walk, or whether god / the universe / deity has placed us on a path that we have no control over. Looking back on it now, I think all of these songs are indicative of my struggle for control over the things I can’t understand or make sense of. The pain and suffering that come with sentience are necessary as a means of quantifying the depth of our experiences as living beings.” explains Biro.
Vertical Love features 6 tracks that will be released independently in the US and via A Wolf At Your Door Records (Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, Mallory Knox) in the UK & Europe. Within the 6 tracks, singles “8147 Mulholland Terrace” and “1435” will be packaged within the EP. In addition to the EP announcement, Alternative Press recently debuted the video for “1435”, and the video can be watched by clicking below or you can stream the sing HERE.
In addition to the video and new EP, the band is excited to embark on their first North American tour, as official support for Los Angeles-based act, Layne. The 29 date tour is the much anticipated follow up to their successful run opening for Simple Plan in Canada late 2017.
“We’re really looking forward to spending some time in parts of America we’ve never seen individually, or as a band,” notes Biro. “I’m looking forward to hanging with my best friends on the road, eating some good southern food and making memories."
Vertical Love is out 16th March via A Wolf At Your Door Records.
