The Brew Inks Deal With Napalm Records

U.K. act The Brew signed on with Napalm Records for an upcoming new release.

Hailing from the North Eastern fishing town of Grimsby, UK, The Brew has gained a reputation as being one of the most exciting live rock acts in Europe today. To date the band has released five chart topping albums to its credit, in the unchanged, original lineup, featuring, Tim Smith on bass, Kurtis Smith on drums and Jason Barwick on guitar and vocals.

The breakthrough for the band came in 2009 with an appearance on the world famous RockPalast TV show, and following the successful album releases of “A Million Dead Stars” and “The Third Floor,” the band returned to the RockPalast show in 2012.

The Brew has toured with the likes of ZZ Top, Lynryd Skynyrd, and shared the stage with Ozzy Osbourne, Jeff Beck, to name but a few. The current critically acclaimed album releases of “Control” (2014) and “Shake the Tree” (2016) have seen the band cement a status as one of the leading rock acts in Europe today.

The Brew states about the new collaboration: “It’s with great pleasure we can now announce, The Brew have signed with Napalm records. Sharing our vision with the talented and dedicated Napalm team, we couldn’t be more excited. 2018 will see the release of new music from the band, for all our awesome fans!!!!”

Century Media Records Inks Deal With Death Alley, New Song Released

Dutch destroyers Death Alley signed on with Century Media Records for the upcoming sophomore album. The band is streaming the new song “The Sewage,” which is available in the player at the bottom.

The band already raised attention with the debut album “Black Magick Boogieland” in 2015. The band, revolving around former The Devil’s Blood guitarist Oeds Beydals, singer Douwe Truijens, Swedish drummer Uno Bruniusson (ex-In Solitude) and latest addition Sander Bus on bass, mainline an unorthodox cross contamination of psychedelic hard rock and punk, played with excellent precision and power. The spirit of Bad Brains and King Crimson, Hawkwind and Poison Idea, and hints of The Stooges and Black Sabbath-worship form the fundament for Death Alley’s solid rock and roll presented with metal finesse and a pitch black psychedelic soul cherry on top.

The ink on the new deal with Century Media Records isn’t dry yet and the band just left the Moon Studios where they recorded the sophomore album with producer Pieter Kloos (Motorpsycho, The Devil’s Blood, Dool, etc.). Right now, the band is hitting the road again with friends in Kadavar with whom very special tour split 7” was created.

The band comments: “We’ve been sailing the sewage for quite a while now, and time has come to harvest the gold and offer it to you on a silver platter. We can spend much time and effort describing the feeling of the new music, the upcoming record, and the European tour with Kadavar, but that will always be just a faint shadow of showing it: so just come to the shows and blast the new song with volume at 11 – that’ll say more than the dozens of synonyms for ‘stoked’. Let us feast on it.”

Check out “The Sewage” here:

Don’t miss seeing Death Alley on tour in Europe and watch out for the new album to be released in early 2018 through Century Media Records.
