PHOENIX — Touring alternative singer-songwriter, Emric‘s new single “Go Down” will hit the internet on August 15th. Be the first in line to experience this powerful message that “to live a full life, you must go down into your darkness”.
Painting a profound atmosphere with his gritty, signature soulful vocals, Emric’s talent is on display as he steps away from guitar, and makes “Go Down” his first piece written on piano, featuring intense synths and hard-hitting stomps.
Having made himself a home in Arizona, Emric will be celebrating his new single release party in Phoenix at the Listening Room on Friday, Aug. 24th at 7pm. Joining him will be alternative pop band Spar Afar.
A dynamic pop solo artist based in Arizona, Emric has appeared on the 2017 Van’s Warped Tour, and opened for such national touring bands as Puddle of Mudd. In 2015, he released a three-song EP, where he received praise from noted producer Stuart Epps (Led Zeppelin, George Harrison) for his single “Set Me Free”. What makes him unique is how he brings his music to life with an ecletic soundscape and gritty, soulful vocals.
Los Angeles-based Fate DeStroyed is a commanding new metal force that was formed and fronted by the talented and alluring Franccesca De Struct. In mid-June, the band released their striking single, “Break Free”, which has since garnered over 250,000 streams/video views via YouTube, Facebook and Spotify combined!
Today, Fate DeStroyed is pleased to reveal the lyric video for their menacing, metallic second single, “We Fall”, cut from their upcoming self-titled EP.
“We Fall” can also be streamed via Spotify now and is currently featured on the New Metal Tracks playlist. Other “We Fall” streaming platforms, including iTunes and Google Play, can be accessed here.
Fate DeStroyed frontwoman Franccesca De Struct says, “‘We Fall’ is a warning to those who spend time consumed by regret. It is a song about looking back at the people, places, and choices that we have made and realizing that while we obsess over things we cannot change, the world continues to turn and pass us by.”
Self-Titled EP Coming Soon
Fate DeStroyed‘s upcoming self-titled EP is co-produced by the band and Carlton Bost (Orgy, Deadsy, The Dreaming). More information regarding the release of the EP will be revealed soon. Fate DeStroyed is breaking ground with a fierce take on the metal status quo, with influences ranging from Deftones to Trivium to Nine Inch Nails. Combining raw emotional lyrics and powerful vocals with visceral guitars and driving synths, Fate DeStroyedcreate an audio assault that bridges the gap between hard hitting 90’s industrial rock and modern heavy metal.The band features current and former members of Green Jelly, Matriarchs, The Dreaming, KUZA, 7 Days Away and Dirty Machine.

Hell Average are a pop punk band from Perth, Western Australia.
Having recently won a local battle of the bands against other established Perth acts, Hell Average have used the prize money to record their new single “Cold Day In Hell”. The song will be available online Friday, June 1st.
The song is hard hitting and honest, influenced by bands such as Green Day and With Confidence.
Hell Average will be celebrating the release with a launch show at The Boston, Northbridge on Saturday, June 2nd.
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 ), 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

UK AND EUROPEAN TOUR STARTS NEXT WEEK
Los Angeles — Hollywood Undead are sending a message of purpose for 2018 by highlighting “Your Life,” the final track from their new album FIVE.

It’s do or die.” Watch the brand new video directed by Brian Cox:
“It might be cliché to say, but it needs to be repeated:You can’t waste your fucking time,” said Johnny 3 Tears. “Every moment you waste worrying is a moment you could’ve been doing something that might actually have consequence by the day you die.”
