Multi-platinum, four-time GRAMMY-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls have debuted a brand new lyric video for their single “Fearless,” one of the standout songs from the band’s 12th studio album Miracle Pill. Directed and produced by Michael Perlmutter, the comic-book-inspired piece is a heartfelt celebration of life’s everyday heroes. Watch the video now HERE.
Goo Goo Dolls also filmed a live performance of “Fearless” in association with Global Citizen for their “Together At Home” Series. The stripped-down rendition was recorded in an effort to spread awareness and raise funds for the World Health Organization to help end the coronavirus. Watch it now HERE.
Miracle Pill officially arrived in September 2019 via Warner Records. The album was described as “potentially the biggest Dolls album released to date (Planet Rock)”, as well as one that “easily stands alongside the best of their career (PopMatters).” In addition to “Fearless,” the engaging and timely album also features numerous other instant-classics such as the smash single “Miracle Pill” and the slow-burn “Autumn Leaves”.
Formed in Buffalo, NY during 1986 by John Rzeznik and Robby Takac, Goo Goo Dolls quietly broke records, contributed a string of staples to the American songbook, connected to millions of fans, and indelibly impacted popular music for three-plus decades. Beyond selling 12 million records worldwide, the group garnered four GRAMMY® Award nominations and seized a page in the history books by achieving 14 number one and Top 10 hits at Hot AC—"the most of any artist.” As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” Among a string of hits, “Iris” clutched #1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and would be named “#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years.” Thus far, A Boy Named Goo (1995) went double-platinum, Dizzy Up The Girl went quadruple-platinum, and Gutterflower (2002) and Let Love In (2006) both went gold as Something for the Rest of Us  and Magnetic (2013) bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. 2016’s Boxes attracted the praise of People and Huffington Post as Noisey, Consequence of Sound, and more featured them. Their music has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Leona Lewis. Among many accolades, John received the prestigious “Hal David Starlight Award” in 2008.
Following a sold-out 2018 twentieth anniversary tour in celebration of Dizzy Up The Girl, Goo Goo Dolls wrote and recorded their twelfth full-length album, Miracle Pill, igniting a bold and bright new era in the process. Miracle Pill arrived on September 13th, 2019 via Warner Records.

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.

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."
