Los Angeles, CA  Today, FRND (a.k.a. Los Angeles-based musician Andrew Goldstein) is excited to share his new single, “Erase.” The upbeat, melodic track is his first new offering in nearly a year and is the first song from his upcoming EP, Before U I Didn’t Exist, out September 28th (via Crooked Paintings/BMG). Fans can stream and purchase “Erase” HERE.

According to Goldstein, “ ‘Erase’ is about someone coming into your life and wiping out lingering sadness from the past. When you realize the effect they have on you, you can’t help but fall for them.

To fully experience the intriguingly glitchy pop of FRND, you need to understand his obsession with koala bears. As surrogates in his videos re-living his experiences, they are depicted sweetly, soulfully, even hallucinogenically. “The koala is almost like an alter ego who represents a version of myself,” explains Goldstein. “They might be chill on the outside, but there’s a lot of emotion. It embodies this journey I’m going through.

Animated avatars notwithstanding, the musings on romantic woe woven through FRND’s intimate 2017 EP, In Your Dreams, proved all-too-human. Its first single, the levitating “Friend” (“My friend….We’ve come to an end”), first captured ears after appearing on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, subsequently hitting No. 1 on Hype Machine. Meanwhile, the ebbing-and-flowing sting of “Substitute” clocked a staggering 16-plus million streams. (Not surprisingly, Goldstein’s knack for capturing the human spirit by way of sticky hooks previously led him to pen songs for Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, and blackbear.)

“The mastermind behind some of today’s most exciting tracks” – NYLON

This has culminated in FRND’s much-anticipated follow up EP, Before U I Didn’t Exist. A collection of melodic, nuanced tracks, they sort through the disenchantment that permeated In Your Dreams. “You erase/ Erase all the hurt that I felt before,” he sings hopefully on Before U’s first single “Erase,” all percolating beats and sweet nothings. “You replace/ Replace it with something I can’t ignore.”

I called my last project In Your Dreams, because I dreamt about some of these songs over and over again,” he says. “It was an awakening that I didn’t feel until I had those experiences.” Before U I Didn’t Exist attempts to exorcise those ghosts. The intoxicating title track (“Stay with me/ Hold on tight/ Fill my heart with pretty lies…”), for instance, is a relatable portrait of escapism. What it doesn’t deliver in closure, it does provide in a contact high through singsongy vocals and bright synthscapes.

“Always infectious” – Entertainment Weekly

FRND’s pop may not always be pretty, but his journey is an exhilaratingly authentic one—lust, laments, and all. “FRND is really this place you don’t think you’re capable of going until you actually get there,” he says. “You realize how much of life is driven by emotion versus thinking logistically.” In the end, there’s still hope for a happy ending. “Once you navigate through these emotions, you get to the next level. That’s what happened for me,” he adds.

Los Angeles, CA – 

Today, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and BMG’s latest signing, Greg Holden, is excited to share his new single, “On The Run,” his first release in three years.

The track was produced by the iconic Butch Walker (Katy Perry, Panic! At The Disco, Weezer) and serves as a follow up to his third full-length studio album, Chase the Sun (2015). “On The Run” is an uplifting, stadium-ready anthem complete with catchy, summery hooks that perfectly mesh with Holden’s strong, heartfelt vocals. The song is available to stream and purchase HERE.

“ ‘On The Run’ is one of a few songs that was bouncing around in my head when it came to the question of what to lead with after three years on the dark side of the moon,” says Holden. “Ultimately, this song felt like the most authentic, whilst at the same time not being so typically subject heavy that I would scare my listeners away. I’ll save that for the second single…”

“ ‘On The Run’ is an apology, obviously. But it’s an apology to a number of people, for a number of things,” he adds. “For years I’ve been on the road, either emotionally or physically absent, and at times probably a nightmare for partners, friends, and family. I wanted to write something that in a way, said sorry for all that. A way to relinquish some of the guilt perhaps. I recorded it last winter with Butch Walker, along with some incredibly talented friends. It took a morning, it was a blast, and then we were done. It feels right to lead with this one as it came out so naturally.”

The Scottish-born, English-raised musician has garnered recognition as an independent artist for the past several years and is best known for writing Phillip Phillips’ hit single, “Home,” which sold over five million copies in the U.S. and earned him an ASCAP Pop Award. He’s also earned praise from industry staples such as Cher, Josh Groban, Sara Bareilles, Michael Bublé, Zane Lowe, TIME, NPR, and more.

Despite his early accolades, Holden has not taken his success for granted and has worked tirelessly to establish his profile as a socially conscious artist. Standout track, “The Lost Boy” (from his sophomore album, I Don’t Believe You [2012]), inspired by a Dave Eggers’ novel about a Sudanese refugee, raised over $50,000 for the Red Cross. His hit single from Chase the Sun, “Boys In The Street,” an acceptance anthem that discusses a gay son’s strained relationship with his father, directly benefited LGBTQ youth by raising money for the Everyone Is Gay organization. It’s an emotional, poignant song that Tom Hanks called “perfect.”

This summer, Holden will head back out on tour, headlining shows across Europe including notable stops in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Munich. All tickets can be purchased HERE, and a full list of shows can be found below.

“Rare is a singer-songwriter who can actually touch the lives of another person with raw, emotional lyrical poetry.” –Nylon

“Soaring, purpose-filled songs that carry real emotional weight.” –BuzzFeed

“Holden’s clear vocals give an even greater weight to his expressive lyrics when the songs are performed live.” –Paste

Hollywood Undead - Whatever It Takes (Mixtape)

Los Angeles, CA – Today, Hollywood Undead unveiled a new version of their hit single, “Whatever It Takes,” featuring notable recording artists Prodigal Sunn, Demrick, and Fudd Rukus. The mixtape edition of the song is available to stream and purchase on digital retailers, and fans can grab a listen and watch the music video HERE.

The video was once again directed by Brian Cox, who has been at the helm for other signature Hollywood Undead videos including “California Dreaming” and “Black Cadillac.” The original track appears on the band’s fifth studio album, FIVE, released October 27th, 2017 via Dove & Grenade Media/BMG

“It’s such an honor for us as a band to share this song with some extremely talented artists and friends,” says Johnny 3 Tears, Hollywood Undead’s vocalist and bass guitarist. “The song is about doing whatever we have to in order to overcome any circumstance, which is something everyone goes through in life. It’s amazing to hear new stories on the same song. What’s your story?”

Currently On North American Tour – Confirmed to Play Las Rageous, Welcome to Rockville, & Fort Rock Festivals

After completing a substantial run of European dates earlier this year, Hollywood Undead is currently back on the road for a tour across North America. Tonight, the band will co-headline The Complex in Salt Lake City with In This Moment, followed by a run of headline shows and festival performances at Las Rageous, Welcome to Rockville, Fort Rock, Corona Hell & Heaven, Impact Music, and Heavy Montréal. After selling out venues in London, Munich, Budapest, Prague, and more, it’s needless to say that the quintet’s atomic live performances are in high demand.

Slightly Stoopid kick off their School’s Out For Summer 2018 Tour (with special guests Stick Figure and Pepper) in June and are excited to headline 91X Presents BeerX.

Slightly Stoopid’s Miles Doughty said, “Stoked to be playing 91X’s BeerX this year! School’s out for Summer, so bring on the music, good beers and blue skies at Waterfront Park. Hometown hangout, butawatchout!

There’s no such thing as a bad beer, just some taste better than others, ha! Can’t wait to taste ‘em all and rock with our SD Ohana,” said Pepper’s Yesod Williams. 

Norwood Fisher, bass player and founding member of Fishbone, said, “I’m filled with gratitude that life’s course has brought us to the reunification of the classic Fishbone lineup! We all recognize that there was a time when it seemed so unlikely that we’d reach this point, and that fuels a personal excitement when we’re hitting the stage. It’s ultra-appropriate that we’re reconnecting with our friends at 91X91X was there for us at the earliest stages of our career, and it’s bad ass that we can party with them now! Now, add to that the fact that the good homies Slightly Stoopid are topping the bill!?!? Sounds like some hell-raising is in order for sure!

91X Program Director Garett Michaels said, “Last year’s BeerX was so great, I wasn’t sure we’d be able to come up with an artist lineup that would compare. But, I think we may have topped it, and I couldn’t be more stoked about what we’ve curated. There’s nothing better than a summer day next to San Diego Bay, with great music, tasty food, and an incredible group of participating breweries. I can’t wait for June 23rd to arrive.  See you at Waterfront Park!

Festival co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions said, “BeerX took San Diego by storm last year with an amazing lineup of bands and an impressive list of breweries from San Diego and beyond! This year, we have assembled even more incredible breweries who will be showcasing their absolute BEST at BeerX! San Diego is famous around the world for its beer and this festival is a perfect representation of what San Diego and Southern California have to offer!
