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.
Punk rock artist and women's empowerment activist, Shiragirl, has premiered the live video for her single "Summers Comin" exclusively with New Noise Magazine. Watch HERE. The track is taken from Shiragirl's recently released EP, Brooklyn Goes Hollywood, which was lauded as "an alternative electro pop-punk reverie" by AltPress. Produced by Tim Armstrong (Rancid, The Transplants, Pink, The Interrupters) and John King (Beastie Boys, Beck, Dust Brothers), Brooklyn Goes Hollywood features a new sound; one that fuses punk rock, new wave and modern dance pop. The EP is available now on all digital platforms. For more information on Shiragirl, please visit: https://shiragirl.com/.
With deep roots on the East Coast, this "Punk Rock Madonna" first splashed onto the scene after crashing the Vans Warped Tour. As the legend goes, a young, determined Shira showed up in her iconic pink RV, created her own stage and performed atop it with her band. After receiving a rousing crowd response, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman invited Shira to return the following summer to host an official Shiragirl Stage. The stage went on to host over 200 female-fronted bands, many making their Warped debuts, including Paramore on their first ever tour, and the legendary Joan Jett. This year, the Shiragirl Stage returned to the 2018 Vans Warped Tour for select dates, including Pomona, San Diego, Ventura and more, and hosted artists such as Blameshift, Shiragirl, Elana J, No Small Children, Whitney Peyton, Bridge City Sinners, Turbulent Hearts and Moa, plus new additions Rivals, Vanessa Silberman and Babs from Emo Nite (DJ set). Shiragirl is also set to perform on the Full Sail Stage at select Warped Tour dates in July, including Milwaukee and Indianapolis.
With the Shiragirl Stage, Shira accomplished her mission to inspire and empower women, by providing them a platform for creative expression. She also broke into the boys club, and made Punk Rock history. Shiragirl's story was featured in the book 'Misfit Summer Camp: 20 Years On The Road With The Vans Warped Tour'. She received an MTV Warpie Award, and a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Warped Tour Time Capsule Exhibit as well.
Shiragirl went on to rock stages across North America, including support slots for Rancid, NOFX, and Juliette Lewis. In 2017, Shiragirl shot a music video for her single "RESIST" at the Women's March, and was invited back to play the 2018 Women's March. Shiragirl may travel far and wide, but her soul will always be Forever Warped.

USA's Hop Along share new single 'Prior Things'; taken from new album 'Bark Your Head Off, Dog', out April 6th on Saddle Creek
Philadelphia's Hop Along return today with 'Prior Things', (listen here - https://youtu.be/6IbBU4QXxD4) the epic closer of their forthcoming new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog, which arrives April 6th on Saddle Creek.
This comes after a triumphant SXSW, where the band debuted several new songs to enraptured fans and earned festival highlight accolades from Brooklyn Vegan, Mercury News, Stereogum - who called singer Frances Quinlan “a national treasure“ - and Rolling Stone who raved, “dexterous rhythms as their anchor gives Hop Along a kinetic kick that might not otherwise be heard in their delicate, nimble songs, and while that's enough to separate the band from their peers, the group is also fun to watch because there's a genuine warmth to their banter." Following lead single 'How Simple' and dynamic album cut 'Not Abel,' 'Prior Things' explores the bitter triumph of a relationship that never comes to be.
The formidable 9-song collection is the band’s strongest and most cohesive album to date. Crafted by Frances Quinlan (songwriter, lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist), Tyler Long (bass), Joe Reinhart (guitar), and Mark Quinlan (drums), the album considers what it’s like to cast off long-held and misguided perceptions, yet without the assurance of knowing what new ones will replace them. Quinlan has been meditating a lot on power. In this particular moment in history, this thought begs a greater question: what do we do with power and the men who so freely brandish it?
Self-produced and recorded at The Headroom in Philadelphia by Reinhart and Kyle Pulley, Bark Your Head Off, Dog features the familiar sounds that have always made the band allergic to genre: grunge, folk, punk, and power pop all appear, with inspiration from ELO to Elvis Costello to ‘70s girl group vocal arrangements. This time around, they’ve added strings, more intricate rhythms, lush harmonies (featuring Thin Lips’ Chrissy Tashjian), along with a momentary visit with a vocoder. In more than one place, Mark Quinlan drums like he’s at a disco with Built to Spill. Bark Your Head Off, Dog is, without question, Hop Along’s most dynamic and textured record yet.

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.
Brazilian Ska-Punk Band Abraskadabra Debut New Music Video
WATCH "THE DREAM" HERE
Brazilian ska-punk band Abraskadabra is gearing up to release their new album Welcome next month, but today you can see the music video for their latest single "The Dream." Premiering on New Noise Magazine, the video is a wild ride inside the head of their vocalist Du, depicting a collection of different dreams he has had (which makes you wonder what the hell he's eating before bed).
Video director Guilherme Lepca says:-
"The process of making the video-clip was inspired by the 80’s punk movement aesthetics (specially Dead Kennedy's gig posters) and also by 30’s horror movies. Our objective recording the clip was to catch the process of making a new album in a rented house and also the vibe of the band. By mixing noisy pictures, non sense collages and parallaxes we wanted to give the clip a dreamy and dynamic narrative/look."
The new album Welcome delivers Abraskadabra's own vision of the ska punk essence. Written as a whole band, they searched for a raw punchy sound while exploring the full capacity of melody. Instead of recording in a traditional studio environment, the seven-piece ensemble crammed themselves into an old house and captured everyone’s feelings and motivations in the moment.
Arising in mid-2003, the band has toured all around Brazil and the US, sharing the stage with legends like Bad Religion, Rise Against, Goldfinger, Less Than Jake, and many more. In 2014, the band's cover of No Use For Name's "Not Your Savior" was featured in the Fat Wreck Chords doc A Fat Wreck.
It isn’t just the 15-years on the road that settle the power and unity of Abraskadabra, but also the energy and passion they put into the music they create. Being friends first and putting together one of the most interesting punk bands in Brazil.

It is now almost 40 years to the day since the Sex Pistols ‘Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols’ was released and to mark this significant anniversary USM/UMC are proud to revisit the out-of-print super deluxe edition of the album, which was originally issued in 2012.
Released in limited numbers at the time, this set is widely considered to be the definitive collection. This new, budget priced smaller-sized edition still boasts 3CDs which include the original studio album with 1977 B-sides, a disc of out-takes and one disc of 1977 live material. Additionally there is a DVD featuring 1977 footage of the band playing live from the infamous boat party held on the River Thames, London, the Winter Gardens, Penzance in Cornwall and the Happy House, Stockholm, Sweden.
Bringing it all together is a 48-page hardback book with narrative from music journalist Pat Gilbert plus rare photos from Bob Gruen, Barry Plummer, John Tiberi and Dave Wainwright.
Condensing the very essence of 1977, Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols is the only studio album by the group, released amidst a furore of controversy and outrage, following their being dropped by not one but two record labels, banned from gigging in most parts of the UK and swearing live on TV. From its iconic day-glo cover designed by Jamie Reid in collaboration with the Sex Pistols to its risqué title which led to an infamous court case which the band won, the album encapsulates a moment in time when the Sex Pistols set the world of music on fire.
