Good Tiger to release “Redux” EP; new video for “Float On” streaming now

– February 11th, 2019 –

Good Tiger will be releasing a remix EP entitled “Redux” to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the release of “We Will All Be Gone.” The EP features remixes from the band, as well as from some of their friends.

Guitarist Dez Nagle explains: Guitarist Dez Nagle explains: “Track one was done by the band and set off the idea of doing the EP. Thankfully, we know a number of extremely talented musicians who could be involved on the EP. There are remixes by Periphery guitarist and electronic artist in his own right, Jake Bowen, L.A producer Ahh-Ceh, and NYC based post-rock electronic group, Infinity Shred. We felt a simplified acoustic arrangement of “Salt” would be a great way to wrap everything up.

It was extremely fun revisiting these tracks and seeing how other artists we admire approach reimagining the original compositions we had made on WWABG.

Redux” track listing:
1. Such a Kind Stranger (Redux)
2. Float On (Jake Bowen Remix)
3. Blueshift (Ahh-Ceh Remix)
4. Grip Shoes (Infinity Shred Remix)
5. Salt of the Earth (Acoustic)

The remix of “Such A Kind Stranger” will be launched on all digital music services on March 7th. The EP will become available to stream in full on March 22nd. Additionally, a new video for “Float On”, shot and edited by WAFKA (wyattclough.com), is now streaming at: blacklightmediarecords.com/goodtiger

For more information, please visit: megacruise.com

DragonForce recently entered the studio with producer Damien Rainaud (Fear Factory, Once Human) to begin recording their 8th studio album, due out 2019 via Metal Blade Records in the USA. Fans can watch livestreams of the studio sessions now on Twitch at twitch.tv/hermanli – plus, all followers of the Twitch page will have a chance to win Herman Li’s personal signature guitar once he reaches 10,000 Twitch followers!

Herman Li comments: “We’re really excited to be recording again after finishing one of our biggest tour cycles ever. We’ll be streaming our recording live on Twitch, and fans can participate in the process by letting us know what they think of our solos! The new album will have a lot of surprises that both old and new fans will really enjoy.

Mother Feather streams new single, “Snakebite”, via Guitar World

– October 1st, 2018 –

“…among the best material the band has released so far.”The Deli

“…glam rock mixed with fiery garage-pop, blending the visual approach of classic glam rock with proto punk influences.”The Punk Site

Adding more fuel to the fire, NYC’s Mother Feather is releasing their second pulsing single today in anticipation of their sophomore album. The out-for-blood “Snakebite” makes its debut exclusively via Guitar World: guitarworld.com, clocking in at under two minutes without a second to spare. Explains lead singer Ann Courtney, “An homage to the evil impulse and the speed of its ambush, I wrote ‘Snakebite’ in a hot 20 minutes. With its production setting it in the cinematic imagination of an 80s punk cult-film, this is the riotous theme song for your psycho ex-girlfriend with an axe to grind.”

New York City’s Mother Feather have perfected the formula to pay homage to the roots of punk’n’roll and heavy rock injected with their own brand of the divine feminine, and since their debut album have been keeping the audience on their toes. The evolution of their high-energy “pop cock rock” surges forward this November 2nd with their sophomore album Constellation Baby, out via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records, and available for pre-order now here: metalblade.com/motherfeather – where you can also stream the previous single, “Red Hot Metal”.


Constellation Baby track-listing
1. Red Hot Metal
2. Man, I Wish You Were Here
3. ICU
4. Snakebite
5. Desert Island
6. Constellation Baby
7. Totally Awesome
8. Shake Your Magic 8 Ball
9. Supernatural
10. I Blow A Kiss

* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available

When writing about A New Kind Of Horror in the record’s liner notes, Anaal Nathrakh vocalist Dave Hunt is succinct in his description: “This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It’s as sincere as we could make it.” Those exposed to the ten tracks comprising the band’s tenth full-length will be unable to deny the truth to these words, for lyrically, musically and sonically it is a punishing listen mired in darkness and seething with raw emotion. With multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney pushing their distinctive hybrid of symphonic black metal, death metal, industrial and grindcore ever forward, Hunt draws lyrical inspiration primarily from the horrors of the First World War, contemporary politics, and the letters of D.H. Lawrence, creating one of the most powerful, timely and unique releases of 2018. “There’s a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for ‘A New Kind of Horror‘ we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn’t have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it’s in a class of its own.”
