Throughout 2016 Imperial Jade toured all through Spain presenting the album by giving numerous gigs booked by themselves, what brought them to open for the Californian band Rival Sons in Barcelona and the Swedish EUROPE in their two concerts given in Madrid and Barcelona among other great bands such as Ten Years After or Michael Monroe.

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.
Legendary Detroit Hard Rockers Madam X have released a video for the title track of their studio album Monstrocity released back in October 2017. Madam X featuring Bret Kaiser on vocals, Maxine Petrucci on guitar, Roxy Petrucci on drums and Chris ‘Godzilla’ Doliber on bass. The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/9IVB10MeuBI
Formed in 1981 by sisters Roxy and Maxine Petrucci, Madam X recruited bassist Chris “Godzilla” Doliber and vocalist Bret Kaiser, who released their classic, Rick Derringer produced, Jet Records debut "We Deserve The Right" in 1984, spawning the hit Rock single “High in High School”. 4 years later, after Roxydeparted to join future Arena Rock superstars Vixen, and original vocalist Kaiser was briefly replaced by an unknown Canadian vocalist named Sebastian Bach, Madam X disbanded, and would remain mostly inactive until 2014, when the original lineup reunited at the Sweden Rock Festival.
Fast forward to 2017, when the Petrucci sisters collaborated with vocalist Mark Slaughter on a Lemmy Kilmister tribute track for their VIP AFTERSHOWproject, Slaughter who introduced Roxy to EMP LABEL GROUP head of A&R Thom Hazaert, who released a 12” “KILMISTER” single for AFTERSHOW, and the conversation soon shifted to the upcoming MADAM X release.
The album features 12 hard-hitting slabs of Rock, including the pummelling title track “Monstrocity”, “Resurrection”, “Nitrous”, and an updated version of their 1984 hit “High In High School.”
Diamante has released her latest music video for the song “Bulletproof” from her debut album, Coming In Hot. The clip showcases a killer training session with fitness motivator and celebrity trainer Melissa Alcantara, known on social media as @FitGurlMel, at Gold’s Gym in Hollywood.
"Thanks so much to the awesome @Fitgurlmel for the inspiring workout. This song is a reminder that when something in life gets you down, you’re strong and can be bulletproof! It came about from my experience of being with people who always tried to make me feel like I was less-than and constantly put me down, this song is the empowering moment when I realized my self-worth and everything I am capable of."
Diamante, 21, brings her own flair to the rock genre with Coming In Hot. As Billboard proclaimed, "Coming in Hot is an excellent showcase for the raw power of her voice, which at times recalls Melissa Etheridge and Sass Jordan blended with the dispassionate élan of Blondie's Debbie Harry." Produced by Howard Benson [Chris Cornell, Kelly Clarkson, My Chemical Romance, Halestorm], the record is a head-turning debut full of "arresting rock anthems," which Cryptic Rock noted in its review.
Fans and critics have already been equally besotted by Diamante's room-filling voice. The "Bulletproof" video shows another side of this strong, fierce, rock 'n' roll dynamo.

Red Cat Records is proud to announce the brand new partnership with lady rock Paola Pellegrini Lexrock, to publish and promote her third album, that will be out in this spring.
It is not an easy task describing the talents of Paola Pellegrini, an intricate all-around expression of rock. The term that best describes her diverse nature would be "polyhedral": professional criminal lawyer in the city of Florence by day and a devout rock guitarist, singer/songwriter by night. Her passion for hard rock/punk/metal came at an early age. Ever since she was a little girl she has been playing guitar and writing songs. Having been a member of various bands, she started her solo career: Paola Pellegrini Lexrock, coining the terms LEX=LAW and ROCK to describe her commitment to protect the constitutionally guaranteed rights of people and the sense of disruptive force and love for authenticity which is ROCK.
After recording her first self-produced album "Agape" (2013), all in italian language, her journey towards artistic and musical success began, leading Paola to the label “Qua’ rock Records” and released the first professional album "Dreams Come True" (2015).
Going on with real passion and hard work, Paola started to collaborate with some of the most important rock musicians in Italy to realize her new album, with a greater focus on arrangements and a particular attention to the sound, that is powerful and at the same time melodic, with great guitars and a strong rhythm section. All tracks are in English (excepted one song) and oriented to an international market and to a wider audience, and Paola has also the will to play it live the more that is possible and hopefully not only in Italy.

Diamante reveals Thelma & Louise-inspired video for 'Had Enough' which can be viewed below:-
Made in support of the #MeToo movement with an all female team, it pays tribute to the classic female friendship road trip film
"I think especially in today’s social climate, it’s both important and powerful to be able to tell the world ‘I’ve had enough, I’m pissed off, and it’s time for change." - Diamante
'Had Enough' follows Diamante’s 'Coming In Hot' official video which has now been streamed more than 1 million times
“Diamante has been making a big noise. With a series of feisty, well-received singles...the anthemic 'Had Enough' [is] a perfectly timed cover of a song originally released by English alt-rockers Lower Than Atlantis in 2016. - Team Rock (She Rocks Campaign, 2018)
As her sultry and show-stopping video for 'Coming In Hot' crosses 1 Million YouTube streams, 21-year-old Diamante shows she’s more than meets the eye in the brand new video for her female empowerment video anthem 'Had Enough'.
Shot on location in Palm Springs CA, Diamante enlisted an all-female team to create the ultimate gal-pal road trip video, which pays homage to the classic pissed-off-chick-flick Thelma and Louise. Taking the desert by storm alongside actress Mackenna Johnson, the video features a behind-the scenes cast including Director/Producer Sofia Lane, production crew Rose Lu and Alyssa Mordal, and camera work by Tania Espinosa Cueva. Each woman is up-and-coming in her respective field.
“It’s critical to see more women at the top of fields traditionally dominated by men,” explains Diamante on her decision to hire women for this shoot. “But in order to do that, we need to give women a chance to get their foot in the door. It was very important to me to create opportunities for other women in the making of this video”
Originally recorded by Lower Than Atlantis, Diamante decided to put her stamp on the song because the strong lyrical content struck a chord. “Something about its unapologetic honesty really captivated me. I think that level of honesty and bluntness of being able to tell the world: 'Hey! I'm pissed off!' is very powerful and something that music has been craving, especially in today's climate”
'Had Enough' is the fourth track released from her forthcoming debut record due out later this year on Better Noise Records, following 'Haunted', 'Sleepwalking' and the breakout track 'Coming In Hot'. Produced by Howard Benson [Chris Cornell, Kelly Clarkson, My Chemical Romance, Halestorm], the upcoming collection brings to light a signature sound the artist has been developing meticulously since age 13. With her edgy style, sultry vocals, pop sensibility, and unabashed swagger, the Mexican-Italian-American solo artist draws from myriad influences and calls to mind legends from a spectrum of rock icons including Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Debbie Harry, Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, and Bowie.
