Rovio Entertainment Corp. has partnered with the multi-platinum Grammy Award-winning band Imagine Dragons to launch “Angry Birds x Imagine Dragons,” a free in-game event playable in Angry Birds Match now through Sept. 25, 2018. The event benefits the Tyler Robinson Foundation (TRF), a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping families cope financially and emotionally with paediatric cancer.
Imagine Dragons commented:-
"The Tyler Robinson Foundation is a cause very close to our hearts. These kids and their families should never have to suffer financial despair when they're already battling cancer together, and it's an honour to help them out any way we can. We jumped at the chance to join with Angry Birds to bring more awareness and support to TRF and these kids."
In “Angry Birds x Imagine Dragons,” adorable baby Angry Birds, a.k.a. the Hatchlings, need a hand as they get ready to rock out in support of TRF. Take part in special challenges, collect VIP passes, and help the Hatchlings set the stage for the biggest concert ever. The in-game event features an exciting new location, the Las Vegas Concert Arena, and three new characters with nine exclusive outfits, including rockstar gear and dragon wings. Additionally, Imagine Dragons’ newest single “Natural” provides the perfect soundtrack for the event.
Kim Gradisher, Tyler Robinson Foundation Executive Director, said:-
“We are incredibly grateful to Imagine Dragons and Rovio Entertainment for using this compelling brand pairing to support TRF and the many families battling paediatric cancer. By using their considerable public platform and reach to draw awareness and encourage giving, Imagine Dragons and the creators of Angry Birds have helped to make a deep impact in the lives of TRF families. Every day, but particularly in September during childhood cancer awareness month, it’s so important to let these families know they do not face their battle alone.”
“Angry Birds x Imagine Dragons” coincides with childhood cancer awareness month and is one of many initiatives TRF supports during September to expand its mission. The Angry Birds Match game will also be featured during the Foundation’s annual “Rise Up” charity gala held on Friday, Sept. 14, in Las Vegas. Integrated placements in the game will link to the campaign’s landing page at trf.org/angrybirds, where players can read more about the cause and take action by donating.
Ville Heijari, CMO, Rovio Entertainment, commented:-
“It’s an honour to team up with Imagine Dragons to support all the good the Tyler Robinson Foundation does for children and families battling this life-threatening disease. It’s our hope Angry Birds Match will help raise awareness around the world about this very important mission and inspire fans everywhere to join the cause.”

Raukkamainen ex saa kyytiä Titan uudella Polttomerkki-sinkulla
Kuuntele Polttomerkki nyt: https://lnk.to/Polttomerkki
Hurmaava laulaja-lauluntekijä Titta julkaisee tänään perjantaina 3.11. uuden singlen Polttomerkki. Menevä pop-kappale kertoo rumasta erosta, jossa kyynelten ja sydänsurujen sijaan annetaan palaa oikein kirjaimellisesti, kun törkeästi käyttäytyneen exän auto päätyy kostossa ilmiliekkeihin.
“Polttomerkki on passiivis-aggressiivinen erolaulu, joka kuvailee erotilanteissa pintaan nousevia inhimillisiä tunteita. Koston himo, viha ja “mikään ei enää hetkauta” -fiilis ovat varmasti tuttuja kaikille jotka ovat joskus joutuneet yllättäen jätetyksi” Titta kuvailee uutta sinkkua. “Mutta vaikka olisit kuinka vihainen, niin litsari on aina väärin. Suutele sitä dorkaa niin jätät itsestäs makeen muiston. Ja sen jälkeen pidät tietysti erobileet!” Titta nauraa.
Polttomerkki-sinkun takaa löytyy tuttuun tapaan kovassa nosteessa oleva tuottaja Niko Lith. Kappaleen sanoituksesta vastaa Titta itse yhdessä muun työryhmän kanssa. Jonkin aikaa julkaisua odottaneen biisin on saattanut kuulla Titan keikoilla jo ennakkoon. Se on ehdottomasti kappale, joka sytyttää yleisön villeimpään tanssiin kerta toisensa jälkeen. “Joka kerta kun Polttomerkki soi jengi on välittömästi liekeissä. Se on niin upeeta nähdä, ja juurikin se syy miksi tätä työtä teen” Titta kertoo. Titan loppuvuoden suunnitelmat keskittyvät uusien biisien hiomiseen keikkailua unohtamatta.

Helsinki hardcore-punk squad Kohti Tuhoa stream the entirety of their highly anticipated second album, Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta, at heavily trafficked taste-makers Noisey - Music By Vice. The album was released in Europe last Friday via Svart Records, and is seeing North American release on November 24th via Southern Lord Recordings. Hear Kohti Tuhoa's Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Kohti Tuhoa's 2015-issued debut LP, Rutiinin Orja,was considered by many as the most exciting hardcore punk record out of Scandinavia in ages. Their sophomore album, Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta is constructed from similar building blocks of aggression aimed at sociopolitical injustice, but with the band's sound taking a step further towards genre classicists such as Discharge and Disorder, not to mention classic Finnish hardcore-punk acts such as Terveet Kädet, Varaus, and Riistetyt.
Recorded in May 2017 at V.R. Studio in Turku, Finland, Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta was engineered by Jussi Vuola, mixed by Jussi Vuola and Kohti Tuhoa, mastered and cut by Jukka Sarapää at Timmion Cutting, and finalized with artwork by returning artist Jaakko Karjula. The album crushes 12 relentless tracks in 20 minutes, including a cover of "Saatanan Lampaat" by Painajainen.
In the meantime, hear the whole album in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of Noisey - Music By Vice. Order info can be found HERE.
