Amy recently performed as part of BBC’s Music Day on September 28. Her performance at Glasgow Central Station saw her sing new single ‘Woman Of The World’, as well as her classic track ‘This Is The Life’, backed by the all female, award-winning choir SoundSational.
Following an incredibly busy couple of years which has seen Amy tour Europe playing to live audiences totalling more than half a million people, she has recently announced two new UK shows for March 2019. Amy will play a headline London show at Hammersmith Apollo on the 21st and Manchester’s O2 Apollo on the 22nd. The acoustic shows will see her play a set of her greatest hits, accompanied by a special musical set up, including a string section.
Amy’s last studio album Under Stars was released in February 2017, going on to chart at number 2 in the UK album chart, making it Amy’s fourth Top 5 record in the UK, a feat she has equalled internationally. The album debuted at number 2 in Germany and number 1 in the Swiss album charts.
Amy has sold 13,000,000 records globally since first breaking through with her debut album This Is The Life in 2007. The record went on to sell over 900,000 units in the UK alone.
UK March Tour Dates:
21st March - London - Hammersmith Apollo
22nd March - Manchester – 02 Apollo
Hawthorne Heights have premiered new video 'Bad Frequencies' on Rock Sound.
The track is taken from album Bad Frequencies which was released earlier this year, the band's first full-length album since 2013 and first release on Pure Noise Records.
You can watch to 'Bad Frequencies' here
Speaking on the song and video for Bad Frequencies singer JT Woodruff says:-
' One of my favourite places on earth is the California desert. It's a dream and a nightmare at the same time, which is why I love it. I wrote the lyrics to the song “Bad Frequencies” while waiting on Interstate 5 in traffic for 4 hours. My dream then turned into a nightmare. You just have to remember that the nightmare eventually goes away, and you always get back to where you need to be. Visually, much of the video’s vibe is an homage to some of our favourite music videos we grew up to in the 90’s. There is a certain amount of mystique to videos from that era that we absolutely love. Other visual inspirations include Twin Peaks and Black Mirror.'
The album was produced by Hawthorne Heights along with Nick Ingram (Hotel Books, Capital House Studio), and mixed by Cameron Webb (Grammy Winner, NOFX, Social Distortion). The band previously worked with Ingram on the Hurt EP as well as Webb for “Push Me Away” which was released last summer ahead of their full run on the Vans Warped Tour.
Hawthorne Heights will also be touring the UK and Europe starting this October.

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.

South London indie pop band Wolf Girl have announced that their second album ‘Every Now & Then’ will be released via Everything Sucks Music on 19th October. The announcement comes alongside a new single ‘Toast For Dinner’. Healey from the band, who is on lead vocals and guitar for this song but also handles bass duties and back-up vocals on various other tracks on the record, says:-
“This song is a tribute to my love of amateur magic, dual guitar riffs and toast. Toast is maybe the greatest food of them all and it is also my go-to if I’m burnt out and can’t find the energy to eat/cook a meal. This song is about a point where I was finding it hard to say no to things and ended up constantly feeling physically and emotionally drained. Sometimes I fantasise about there being multiple versions of myself like in Fantasia’s ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ so I can invest myself fully in everything that I do.”
‘Every Now & Then’ consists of nine hook-laden tunes about queer feelings, coming out and dealing with social burnout and marks a real period of growth for Wolf Girl. With Healy helming the majority of the songwriting, each track acted as a strange kind of therapy and catharsis, exploring sexuality, gender identity and anxiety. The album was recorded with Mark Jasper of Sound Savers and the band really focused on capturing the energy shown in their live shows.
New single & music video ‘Toast For Dinner’ out now:

There are a lot of firsts on this record. Christabel gets her first songwriting/lead vocal credit in the form of 'Dream Partner'. She’d chosen a deliberately ‘50s/’60s pop chord sequence and song structure so the band tried to emphasise that in the studio with handclaps and Wall of Sound/Joe Meek type reverbs. ‘Breaking News' also sees the addition of saxophone played by Phil Whaite of Guttfull. “Being fans of X-Ray Spex, Roxy Music and Downtown Boys, we knew we wanted to include horns on this track,” enthuses Healey. “It’s about "choosing to come out when you want", in a society where queer people are forced to do so repeatedly.”
In the two years since the release of their much-loved first album ‘We Tried’, Wolf Girl have shared bills with the likes of The Spook School, Girl Ray, and Worriers. They’ve also branched out into other music projects, from The Whooperups (Healey’s collaboration with AC from the Spook School) to Suggested Friends (where Christabel also takes up the drums).
The crunching, distorted guitars and catchy melodies that fans will remember from the band’s first album can still be found on ‘Every Now & Then’. But this new album is a bigger, braver and, at times, completely heart-breaking collection of songs and experiences – political, poignant, yet perfectly pop.

London-based singer/songwriter, performer and curator Belgrave releases visual for the title track from his new four-track EP 'Riviera', released on The Shooting Gallery Recordings this May 25th.
A former tailor on London's Saville Row, Belgrave's distinctly dark melancholic pop perfectly pairs powerful, emotive songwriting with grandiose choruses inspired by the artist's childhood heroes such as Freddie Mercury, George Michael and Elton John. Nowhere is this more evident than the EP's first single 'Riviera', whose ethereal, dreamlike tone serves as an important introduction to a unique talent impossible to define.
On the track, Belgrave explains ""I have always been fascinated by music that I cannot comprehend or understand. Once I heard the vocal sample while writing 'Riviera', I was entranced by it and the rest of the song fell into place around it quite naturally"
The 'Riviera' EP will be released via The Shooting Gallery Recordings on May 25th.

The mighty Like Thieves have returned to the Australian music scene strongly in recent weeks with the release of their latest single "Never See it Coming" and the announcement of their national run of live shows. Now, they are doubling down on what has been a huge response to the song and tour, with the release of a film-clip for the prog / rock track, and the announcement of all support acts for the tour.
The video-clip was shot in Brisbane's CBD in March - and it is a frantic, intense, black-and-white clip and matches the attack & pace of the song. Clint Gough, bassist for the band and director of the stark and striking film-clip, says that "This video is a about mental illness. For some people, getting out of bed or walking down the street can seem like an impossible task. And unfortunately, many people choose to pay the ultimate price to escape from their own thoughts. We want to confront people about this issue and the devastating effects it can have. Because the sad fact is, you can never see it coming."
Check the video out here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lb4PX0PkG-0&feature=youtu.be
Like Thieves are bringing their new, heavier sound out on the road and they are taking Khan out on all dates, and joining them on individual shows are: in Canberra at The Basement May 11th - Immorium, Sydney's Red Rattler Theatre May 12th sees Sanity's Collision, Adelaide's Enigma Bar on May 25th will get Colibrium, Red Lotus will support at Melbourne's Evelyn Hotel on May 26th and Brisbane's The Zoo June 2nd will be with Jabberwooky Down in support.
