Riskee and the Ridicule are playing a very special launch show for their forthcoming album 'Body Bag Your Scene' at The Black Heart in Camden, London! With the album being released on June 28th via Bomber Music, this show will give you the chance to hear tracks from the new album before anyone else and purchase some exclusive merchandise on the night!

Riskee and the Ridicule are a tour-de-force of politics, protest and punk that rest among the motives of The Clash with relentless streams of wit, literacy and observational accuracy akin to The Smiths and the influence of the UK Grime scene. When it’s all brought together, they produce their own unique and ferocious “Grime-Punk” sound.

Full of fierce energy, the Kent quintet have been making big waves nationwide and around Europe since the release of their debut album in 2014, 'Dawn Of The Dog'. The release of 2017’s 'Blame Culture' propelled them even further with a hectic festival schedule, headline tours and a tour around North America rounding off the album’s era. The band are now gearing up for their new album release, 'Body Bag Your Scene' (June 28th, 2019) preceded by their new single "KABOOM!" (May 28th).

Riskee and The Ridicule are establishing themselves as an unstoppable live band who are not to be missed. Utilising a sound full of fun and hooks with choruses that will have their ever-growing, dedicated and raucous crowds screaming the words back at them at every show.

64444506_2277585582288780_3819336686291124224_n.jpg

Felix Martin is a Venezuelan guitarist & band trio based out of the elite Los Angeles music scene in California. Their unique and versatile style consists of an eclectic Metal sound with Latin Music and Jazz/Fusion genre mixes.

Felix grew up in Venezuela, then moved to Boston to study at the renowned university Berklee School Of Music. After graduating on a scholarship, he got signed by Prosthetic Records (Marty Friedman, Animals as Leaders, Lamb of God, Gojira) and started touring the world with his band.

They hit the road and played shows with well known prominent acts that include Sons Of Apollo (Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Bumblefoot), Marty Friedman, Tony MacAlpine, as well as touring in the USA, Europe, Venezuela, Mexico, Colombia and China. The band also performed in the festival circuit that includes Progressive Nation at Sea (Neal Morse, Devin Townsend, Periphery, Animals As Leaders), SXSW (Veil Of Maya), Euroblast (Leprous) in Germany, Mexicali Prog (Haken) in Mexico, and Tech Fest in the UK, among many others.

Over the years, Felix has been featured in various media publications around the world including LA Weekly, Revolver Magazine, Billboard, CBS Radio, Guitar World, Premier Guitar, Vintange Guitar, Blabblermouth, just to name a few.

He performs with self designed 16 and 14 string guitars, which consist of two guitars joined together in one. He also currently plays a 16-string guitar (two 8 strings joined together) in collaboration with Kiesel Guitars, and plays a 14-string acoustic (8 and 6-string combo) in collaboration with JP Laplante. Felix’s bandmates are comprised of his Berklee college mates like drummers Victor Carracedo, JP Bouvet and bassist Javier Sepulveda (who also plays guitar), Nathan Navarro, Kilian Duarte and Yas Yasutaka.

His musical beginnings were focused primarily on Metal with Jazz Fusion, and nowadays is exploring Metal with Venezuelan music, straight up Latin (Cuban, Puerto Rican) and Latin American. He has a strong attachment to his Latino and Venezuelan culture, and his music reflects it diligently.

Growing up during the Venezuelan crisis, this shaped Felix's anchor musical influences. He is also a political activist in his home country of Venezuela, where he was one of the leading protesters against the regime that still governs Venezuela.

Felix’s album will be released in 2019, which is going to include his Latin / Venezuelan music roots with a dynamic mix of metal.

influential beyond measure to the British 80's rockin' scene, The Deltas released the essential single 'Heart Attack' and the also-essential album 'Boogie Disease' in 1981, kick-starting a wave of neo-rockabilly bands, some of which would mutate into the early stages of psychobilly.
At it ever since, their live show never fails to disappoint!

HENRY & THE BLEEDERS

Bedford. 2004. 4 young men form a band with the dream of playing raw rockabilly to audiences worldwide. Having achieved that, their recent release on Western Star Records- 'Looking Backwards' sees even more of a return to traditional rockabilly in the spirit of '56 and the bands live set is tighter than ever.

About:

Danny Vaughn - www.facebook.com/pages/category/Performing-Arts/Danny-Vaughn-49167339391

At first it was all about the attention.

As a young child (that probably should have been put on some kind of calming medication) Danny Vaughn was forever singing along to his parents’ Beatles albums while running in circles around the house at top speed. Until something broke. Then he was running in a straight line out of the house at top speed. It was in grade school, at the age of 11, that some far-thinking teacher decided to channel all that sound and motion by getting Danny into the school choir.
Within a month he was singing his first solo in front of the entire school. When he realized that everyone was craning their neck trying to see who was singing, he was hooked! A lead singer is born when they find the spotlight to be warm and comforting rather than glaring and terrifying.
Rock and roll came later.

At first Danny’s musical training consisted of playing the recorder and singing Gilbert & Sullivan, but at age 14 came his first guitar (well behind most of his friends who had gotten theirs several years earlier) and, soon after that, his first band, ‘Relative Pleasure’. Mostly, ‘Relative Pleasure’ played cover songs at school parties but, before they disbanded, they got into some of the more prestigious venues in NYC and even recorded a demo or two. After that came a series of cover bands that got more and more serious and took him from being a teenage dreamer to becoming a working rock singer, driving stupendously long distances around the Rockland County, New Jersey and Long Island area in order to play in some of the stickiest, darkest dives in all of creation. The bands had names like ‘Beefeeter’, ‘Obsession’, ‘D.W.I.’ and ‘Allied Forces’. It was while singing for the latter, in 1984, that he got noticed, and eventually recruited, in order to go to Florida to work with guitarist Paul Chapman of UFO on his new solo project, ‘D.O.A.’

Beer was drunk, demos were made, hands were shaken and Paul went off to England to try and secure the band a record deal. It was while in England that Paul was waylaid (pardon the pun) and recruited for another band, ‘Waysted’, the flagship of UFO’s one and only wobbly-legged bass legend, Pete Way.

A year later Paul found Danny once again. Talks began about him taking over the lead vocal duties in Waysted from Fin More. All was not happy in the Waysted camp (turns out that was the normal state of affairs!) and they had a festival commitment coming up that Fin refused to play. So the gauntlet was thrown: “Come and rehearse in Wales with Waysted for 2 days, then fly to Tel Aviv, Israel in order to play your first gig with the band in the famous Ramat Gan football stadium. If you can hack it, you’re in the band.”
He did and he was!

This was 1985. The next 2 years were a whirlwind spent recording his first album, “Save Your Prayers”, making his first MTV video, “Heaven Tonight”, and touring the world playing stadiums as the opening act for such musical giants as Iron Maiden and Status Quo.

By 1987, though, it was all over. Following a number of internal problems, the highly anticipated next album was never made and the band parted with a whimper instead of the bang that everyone thought they’d make.

Back in Brooklyn, it took a year of soul-searching and basement living before Danny realized that, despite the huge amount of exposure and experience that Waysted had given him, fame was not beating a path to his door.

Time to start up his own band.

His first phone call was to drummer Michael Clayton Arbeeny, whom he had assisted with a recording project several months before. Right away he knew he had found a real friend, ideal business partner and monster drummer all in one. Michael also seemed to run on rocket fuel, making him a “Go, go, go!” kind of guy. That sort of spirit is contagious and things went quickly after that. They found bass player Jimi Kennedy and guitarist Brooke St. James and launched into a campaign that created ‘Tyketto’. Signed, first, by powerhouse management company Loud N Proud and then to Geffen’s DGC label, Tyketto made the legendary, underground classic album “Don’t Come Easy” in 1991. For 5 years they toured hard, made videos, and did all the things that young and hirsute rock bands are supposed to do. They built a staunch and loyal following in the US, the UK and Europe because of the consistently high level and energy of their stage shows.

Their second album, ‘Strength In Numbers’ was released in 1994 and was well received but the musical tide had turned and by 1996, with the grunge scene in full swing, Danny had simply had enough of the grinding tour schedule. He’d also had a bellyful of the music industry which was, is and always will be, like swimming in shark-infested waters.

But retirement was not to be for long. Even when he wasn’t writing his own music he kept busy. In 1996 he stepped in at the last minute to sing on the powerful blues-rock album ‘Blues For Daze’ by the band ‘Flesh And Blood’. By the year 2000 Danny was officially out of retirement and back on the boards, where he has remained ever since!

The term “legend” gets thrown around a lot. Danny wishes it wouldn’t.
But he has turned out a pretty impressive catalogue of work.
- 5 albums by ‘Tyketto’
- 7 solo albums
- Lead vocal duties on several project albums, including ‘From The Inside’, 1 and 2, by Frontiers Records
- The 2013 release of ‘Simplified’ the latest album by ‘Burning Kingdom’.

Danny has also appeared on countless albums and demo projects as a lead or backing vocalist, including: Yes, Riot, Richie Zito, Jorge Salan, Gary Hughes, Rage Of Angels, Airless, Mago De Oz and The Northern Lights Orchestra.

In 2009 Danny co-founded “The Ultimate Eagles”, who are consistently referred to as the best Eagles tribute band in the world. So far they have brought their outstanding stage show to England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Holland, Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium and France. They have appeared twice at Chris Evans’ massive Car-Fest show and are a regular feature at all Harley Davidson European events. With tours getting bigger and bolder each year the band won’t rest until they are a household name everywhere! www.ultimateeagles.com

And 2019 is brought right up to date with Danny releasing his most personal solo album ever. Myths, Legends and Lies is released in June 2019, backed by a press campaign that came about due to Danny falling victim to the Pledge Music Scandal, and by being the first artist to properly speak out. However, not withstanding, Danny’s hard core fan base came to his rescue and he has managed to complete the recording of the album, and meet all pledge obligations, making this album all the more special.

So who knows? Maybe it’s still all about the attention?
But more than anything it will always be about the music.

Sleight of Hand Music is happy to host 1968 and Oak as they prepare to embark on a run of gigs in Europe together, with support from Lowen!

1968
Cheshire-based riff monsters 1968 have been smashing out tunes together since 2013. As the name suggests, they pull influences from the death of the summer of love and the realization that everything wasn't quite as 'peaceful' as it could have been.

Drawing influences from Sabbath, Blue Cheer and riff makers such as Mountain, 1968 are pushing the older sound into modern ears and using volume to ensure that listeners or spectators are left with their ears ringing for days.

https://1968band.bandcamp.com/

Oak
Gnarly, big riffing high energy heavy rock. They take retro blues rock, make it filthy and down tuned and get an actual mad man to sing over it.

With three EPs to their name and slots on all dayers up and down the country under their belt, this will be their last local gig before they play the main stage at HRH Doom vs Stoner later in the month.

Lowen
Crushing progressive doom steeped in the history of the ancient middle-east and the empty vistas of space.

RIPPLE FEST UK

Ft

Stubb

War Cloud

Psychlona

Lord Vapour

————————————————————

Leading California label Ripple brings their take on heavy rock to London. Home to acts such as Mothership, Wo Fat and Freedom Hawk, Ripple brings four of their finest fuzzed-out riff acts to the Black Heart for Ripplefest this September. Ripple shared the following:

We at Ripple could not be more excited to be collaborating with our dear friends at Desertscene to bring you the first ever Ripplefest in London! It is our honour to bring you four of the most exciting bands from the Ripple roster for what promises to be a truly memorable evening. London has been a hub of rock and roll since its inception, and bringing our sound to one of the city’s most infamous clubs will be a major landmark for us. It has been a high priority of ours over the last year to expand our brand in Europe, and this is a thrilling next step. 

None of this would have been possible without the support of you the fans. We also want to express endless gratitude to Reece and Sarika for helping to make this happen!

STUBB

The power trios of the late ’60s and early ’70s are the blueprint for Stubb’s loud, hard-driving, fuzzed-up heavy blues rock. The band recorded their first full length album for UK label Superhot Records, and hit the road, gigging with such heavy rock luminaries as the Gentlemans Pistols, Firebird, Cherry Choke, Steak, Sungrazer and The Machine as well as appearing at Desertfest to a packed house. Making the trip over to Europe twice with Stone Axe from the USA further cemented Stubb’s reputation as a solid live act with some serious chops. Quickly, their debut album sold out and fans of heavy rock have been waiting eagerly for their sophomore effort. Now, Ripple Music is proud to deliver Cry of the Ocean, a blissed-out new album that will cement Stubb’s reputation in the hierarchy of heavy rock bands.

WAR CLOUD

War Cloud is a young band but far from wide-eyed innocents. Their musical history drenched in molten riffs across the timeline of heavy metal, the name alone originates from a Wicked Lady song of the same title. With roots encompassing Tony's tenure in San Francisco's heavy thrash tinged Hell Fire, Carson's melding of hard rock rhythm and old-school groove on bass, and Joaquin pounding his drums as if possessed by the ghost of John Bonham himself. War Cloud has created a new flavour of heavy rock music for those enjoying past meals served up by the likes of Pentagram, UFO, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath. September marks their first European tour! 

PYSCHLONA

Hailing from the city of Bradford in Yorkshire Country, England, Psychlonacoalesced quickly with laid-back soundscapes, fuzz-driven grooves, and weighty yet flowing riff power they mutually loved.  The ambitious and motivated foursome wasted no time writing and self-releasing their debut album while simultaneously organizing and hosting their own music festival, Idle Fest, all with the goal of taking their sound global. Psychlona floats easily between Boogie Van-era Fu and early Orange Goblin, stirred with the occasional spoonsful of Spirit Caravan to doom things out.  Of course, no matter how far they ride in any direction, Sky Valley is always just over the horizon... 

Psychlona's debut album, Mojo Rising,  was released with digital and CD via US riff-rock leaders Ripple Music and vinyl through Cursed Tongue Records.

LORD VAPOUR

Formed in late 2014 on the island of Guernsey, Lord Vapour have endeavoured to produce huge riff fuelled music interlaced with groovy bass lines and pounding drums whilst also bringing through heavy elements of psychedelic rock along with subtle elements of funk, doom and 70s rock. Founded by Joe Le Long, Christiaan Mariess and Henry Fears, from the start the band had clearly found a niche that their small island home of Guernsey had never experienced before: A combination of groovy headbanging riffs and drawn out psychedelic jams, Lord Vapour has the appeal of rockers of yesterday, modern music goers and everyone in between. The bands ability to combine many different elements into individual songs and the power behind their catchy riffs has people hooked on their sound.

The headbanging continues downstairs post-riffs with DJs spinning until late!

Heavy, but with a lot of room for dynamics and atmosphere. A raw, pure, dark sound with emotion as its center. Lesoir's set goes from fragility and whispering, to chaos and heavy sounds, without losing the melody of each song. 

 

Lesoir is no longer a stranger to the Dutch progressive rock landscape and has even been successful in China. The art rock band is influenced by Anathema, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson and The Gathering. Lesoir features two fabulous front ladies.

 

Lesoir was founded in 2010 and released its debut album one year later. In the meantime, the band has four albums to its name. Their second album “Transience” was produced by John Cornfield and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Last Shadow Puppets). Their third album “Luctor Et Emergo” was recorded at the British Airfield Studio (Elton John, War Of The World). Lesoir has in recent years performed with bands like The Gentle Storm, Delain, Evergrey, The Pineapple Thief and Within Temptation. The band was also featured at festivals like Night Of The Prog, IO Pages Festival and Midsummer Prog Festival. The new album is produced by John Cornfield (Muse) and Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief) and released on the German quality label Gentle Art Of Music. Lesoir just got back from 5 weeks of touring through Europe as special guest of Riverside.

—————————————————————-

BLOODSHOT DAWN

First formed in 2003, Bloodshot Dawn have evolved from a straight forward, groove orientated death metal band into a technically ferocious extreme metal outfit. Hailed by Terrorizer as a band that delivers "blistering live shows", Bloodshot Dawn have become a household name in the UK underground.
The band then went on to win the 2009 "Metal To The Masses" competition, playing at Bloodstock Open Air Festival with the likes of influential bands such as Carcass, Arch Enemy and Kreator.
Bloodshot Dawn supported the release of their 2011 "Slaves To The Lie" EP with tour dates in the UK, including gigs with Vader, Krisiun, and Cerebral Bore.
Following on from the success of the EP, the critically acclaimed self-titled album received extremely positive feedback from the fans, reviews, interviews and radio play. Terrorizer cited the album as "a polished exercise in technical fury & unremitting brutality", going on to say "what Bloodshot Dawn offer is something slick and streamlined without losing sight of the main goal: to smash your teeth in."
The band went on to support Fleshgod Apocalypse on their 'Agony UK/EIRE Tour'. During these tour dates Terrorizer magazine streamed Bloodshot Dawn's debut album on their website. Shortly after this, Terrorizer distributed "Bloodshot Dawn" as a free CD with issue #221 of the magazine in support of raising further awareness of the band.
Later in 2012 Bloodshot Dawn played a packed out performance at 'Bloodstock Open Air' festival, the UK's largest independent metal festival, as well as playing frequent shows around the UK including a full tour support to Death Metal legends, Decapitated.
Following the success of their debut album, Bloodshot Dawn entered Envy Studios in September 2012 to record a brand new single,"Theoktony", between tour commitments. The single was released on October 26th 2012 with all proceeds in support of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation (www.sophielancasterfoundation.com)

More tours followed, including Japan (November) alongside Swedish Melodic Death Metallers, Deals Death, and touring in India (December) including a slot at "Indian Metal Fest".

INFECTED DEAD

From the rotten shores of the river Medway, comes modern death metal 5-piece Infected Dead.
Specialising in infectious, neck-snapping riffs, virtuoso solos and insane drums, they have been devastating venues all over the south of England throughout 2017. They arrived on the scene in late 2016 and have been turning the heads of fans and critics alike with their ultra-fast, ultra-sweaty live shows.
They won Metal 2 The Masses (Kent) in May of 2017 and appeared at Bloodstock Open Air that summer, before signing with Hostile Media.
Their debut E.P 'Archaic Malevolence' was released on December 8th 2017.

BECOMES ASTRAL

Becomes Astral is a progressive death metal band based out of Guelph, Ontario. Formed in the later months of 2013, they quickly got to work on releasing their debut EP, The Mind, which was released in October 2014. The Mind was recorded and mixed by Don Levasseur at Atlantic Studio. After their debut release, Becomes Astral toured heavily for the following year, covering west coast Canada, and two Ontario and Quebec tours. Playing steadily since, Becomes Astral has made themselves a force to be reckoned with, allowing the band to sell out half of their last tour in Ontario. In early 2016, Becomes Astral took a break from playing live to write a full-length record, and returned to shows in late 2016. In December 2016 the band entered The Grid Studios in Montreal, QC with Christian Donaldson of Cryptopsy as a producer and came out with a piece of music they are proud to call their own, Paleblood Sky.

THE DEVIL & THE UNIVERSE
https://www.facebook.com/TheDevilAndTheUniverse/

———————————————-

The Goats are returning to London!

The threatening sound of helicopter blades rotating, indistinguishable radio messages seeped in static, and the strains of a far-eastern melody open the new album by THE DEVIL AND THE UNIVERSE. Once the beat of the drums takes hold, you are reminded these sounds are being provided by the Viennese trio, who take us 50 years down memory lane with : ENDGAME 69 :
Familiar electronic sounds, hard guitars and trance-evoking drums meet Indian and near-eastern vocal stylings—exotic drum and string instruments with such delightful names as the Tambur, Darabuka, Tablas, and Santurs. If, however, you think THE DEVIL AND THE UNIVERSE have now officially unearthed their inner trippy-hippies, think again.

The term “Satanic Panic” first emerged back in the year 1969. Most probably as a reaction to the radical social changes and crisis happening at the time. The occult worked its way into mainstream pop and social culture with the Manson Family Murders and the “Church of Satan” grabbing headlines. And also with “The Process” operating as a first ever public religious organisation which addresses satanic content within scripture.

What is happening to us?

Due partially to the growing resentment of the Vietnam War, an increase in drug intakes, revolutionary human rights movements such as the “Black Panthers”, the previously peaceful Hippy Revolution started to become more classically militant. When violence and murder were committed at the Altamont Rolling Stones concert, the Give Peace A Chance vibe from just a few months earlier at the infamous Hippy Convention also known as Woodstock, were definitely a thing of the past. What happened at Altamont was a forbearing for a decidedly not so lovey dovey future.

Turn Off, Tune Out, Drop Dead.

It has been a half a century since 1969 but the turbulence of those times can definitely be reflected in contemporary political and social climates. With all their sensitivities about past and present heightened, THE DEVIL AND THE UNIVERSE are staring deep into the dream machine and encouraging Kali’s tongue to indulge in sunshine acid.

As with past recordings, Ashley Dayour, David Pfister and Stefan Elsbacher travelled the continents to capture sounds only available beyond the confines of a classic studio. From the Californian Death Valley to the Hindu temples of Vietnamese jungles still ravaged by the violence of last century Napalm devastation. Also a chance encounter with underground filmmaker and magician Kenneth Anger leaves its trace on the new album.
Vocals are also provided by Christina Lessiak of the band „Crush“ for the track „Kali‘s Tongue“ and Medina Rekic of the band “White Miles” for the track „1969“.

The goal of THE DEVIL AND THE UNIVERSE’s newest offering is to combine the iconography of 1969 with various musical genres such as Space Disco, Psychedelic Glam, Synth Pop, New Wave und Black Metal to create the fever-like haze unmistakeably attributed to the vibe of the year 1969.

HEAVY METAL YOGA - (Workshop)

fullsizeoutput_28e0.jpeg

The 16th June WORKSHOP session of HEAVY METAL VINYASA YOGA at The Black Heart

Brought to you by SELMA RA YOGA, this afternoon sessions will take place on Sunday 16th upstairs in the Black Heart venue from 3pm-4pm (please check calendar / links below for dates). In their own words :
”We'll be fueling our meditative physical movement with some heavy, expansive, smashing atmospheric black, folk, death, and doom metal. The Black Heart has an awesome venue space for gigs, we all know that- and they've agreed to hold metal vinyasa yoga classes too, for the first time!”

16th June is a workshop is a session where we explore certain poses in more depth - We take the time to understand the anatomy behind, the common mistakes and how to avoid them... We learn what we’re actually doing. This kind of session is useful for trickier / scary-looking poses.
I asked you on a poll a while back, whether you would prefer an inversions or backbend workshop.

Inversions won! The backbend workshop will follow soon after, but we will thus start the first of our “What the f*** am I doing” Workshop Series with Inversions! Inversions include handstands, headstands and the like.

Starting with a warm up flow, we will delve into drills that help prepare our body for inversions. We will go through the anatomical basics, how to avoid common mistakes... In other words, how to enter inversions (or poses that lead to inversions) safely!
And when there is safety, there is no need to fear ;)

We will learn how not to be scared sh*tless of inversions.
We will use this session for practicing various inversions, not necessarily the final poses, unless of course you’re already there (it takes a lot longer than an hour to master inversions) but the stages progressing to the finalised poses.

This class will be smaller, as every student will need a wall space- this will have a hands-on approach where every student is given attention is guaranteed.

You can then take this knowledge home, and know how to practice inversions safely if you choose to ;)

Black candles and yoga mats provided...
Please come wearing flexible, comfortable clothing.

ONLY £10 -OR STUDENTS £8

Retribution Alive makes its way back to the Black Heart in Camden for the first time in 3 years for our May edition. Brighton doom overlords KING GOAT headline, with the gothic death-doom of MY SILENT WAKE in support, alongside URNE and SPIRAL TOMB!

KING GOAT

King Goat are a progressive doom metal sextet, hailing from Brighton UK. Since forming in 2012, they have been gaining a reputation for enthralling audiences with their engaging, atmospheric live performance.

King Goat have played major shows around the UK including a packed out New Blood tent at Bloodstock Open Air, Mammothfest, Doom Over London and many others.

https://www.facebook.com/kinggoatbri/

MY SILENT WAKE

Dave Smalley, the legendary punk rock singer (DYS, All, Dag Nasty, Down By Law) has a new band Formed in 2017, Mr. Smalley has united The Bandoleros, three Spanish guys and one crazy Argentinian, to conquer the whole world soon.

There are no borders and no oceans too wide enough to play good music if people can connect perfectly with those who have had similar experiences in the music, touring, knowing really nice people, understanding different cultures and screaming for a change all together. That's punk rock for you and that's why Dave Smalley & The Bandoleros were created.

Song Brief -
Punk rock and hardcore have always been a family. Together the bands, fans, fanzines, record labels, studios, radio shows, clubs and festivals created this whole world and it's an amazing ecosystem, but we are always going to be "the outsiders" compared to the mainstream. This song is just a reminder that you are not alone. When things get tough, depend on your friends and the music.

Dave Smalley & The Bandoleros

The Album Artwork was put together by Annie Walter, an Australian Artist, who has worked with many artists for example Wilhem Scream and Pennywise to name a few.
