The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band

Website | Facebook | Youtube

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band has been creating a whirlwind with their riveting and unconventional elixir of muscular and high voltage country blues capped by gritty growling vocals and striking finger picking. Inspired by the likes of Charley Patton, Furry Lewis and John Hurt, Reverend Peyton is steeped in the great blues tradition but is catapulting its roots into a new era. Living Blues Magazine declares, “The tent revival, almost punk energy of the Big Damn Band is a refreshing splash of coldwater to the face,” while Elmore Magazine raves “You can’t ignore Big Damn Band’s gospel.” February 2015, Shanachie Entertainment will release The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band’s highly anticipated new CD. The release of this album marks the first time that a contemporary artist has been released on Yazoo. Shanachie Entertainment General Manager Randall Grass shares, “We are excited to sign Reverend Peyton, an artist whose appreciation of the many great blues artists released on our historic Yazoo label has led him--like The White Stripes and The Black Keys--to translate the spirit of those seminal masters into a 21st century incarnation of elemental blues."

Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band have distinguished themselves for their tireless work ethic and high-octane live performances. Their sheer energy, virtuoso musicianship and witty songwriting have allowed the road warriors to play close to 250 dates a year and become favorites on the festival circuit. The strikingly magnetic trio features the Reverend along with his wife Breezy’s energized washboard playing and soulful vocals and dynamic drummer Ben “Bird Dog” Bussell. "The Yazoo Record label was always my favorite label growing up, and am so proud to be a part of the roster,” shares Reverend Peyton. “We now share a label with so many of our heroes. I can't wait for our fans and the rest of the world to hear this record. The foundation is built on the legacy of American Rural Blues, but we endeavor to take this music to places beyond the museum and the nostalgic. This is timeless music for listeners now that owes as much to The Band, ZZ Top, and CCR as it does to Charley Patton."

Reverend Peyton’s father, a blues fan, bought him a red Kay state of the Art model guitar and later a Gorilla amplifier once he learned to play. It was not long before the Rev was exploring the music of BB King, Muddy Waters, Bukka White and Charley Patton. In high school, following a performance at his graduation party, The Rev, experienced excruciating pain in his hands. Doctors later informed him that he would never be able to hold his left hand in fretting position again. During the year when he was unable to play, he spent countless hours dreaming of playing again. He eventually underwent hand surgery that required removing a mass of scar tissue that led to new flexibility and greater control. It was during this recovery time that Rev. Peyton met Breezy. Their first date was at the Indiana State Fair, where Peyton won a stuffed animal they named the "Big Damn Bear,” and the rest as they say is history.

In February 2015, Yazoo Records will release The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band’s highly anticipated new CD, So Delicious. Their previous releases include: Big Damn Nation (2006) The Gospel Album (2007), The Whole Fam Damnily (2008), The Wages (2010), Peyton on Patton (2011) and Between the Ditches (2012), which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Blues Charts. This will be their first release with Yazoo Records. In 2010 they were on the entire Van’s Warped Tour on the Alternative Press stage and they received the “Best Band of Warped Tour” award, voted by the crew, bands, and promoters. They’ve also played the following festivals; Glastonbury, Austin City Limits, Bonaroo, High Sierra, Warped Tour, Vancouver Folk Fest, King Biscuit Blues Fest, Riot Fest, WOMAD, Cornbury, Edinburgh Jazz Fest, Cambridge Folk Fest, Waterfront Blues Fest, Telluride, DelFest and All Good just to name a few. With the release of their new record in February, 2015 The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is poised to reach the masses with their insatiable fusion of Delta blues, hillbilly fervor, rock infused edge and poignant story telling.

The release of this album marks the first time that a contemporary artist has been released on Yazoo Records. Yazoo/Shanachie Entertainment General Manager Randall Grass shares:

“We are excited to sign Reverend Peyton, an artist whose appreciation of the many great blues artists released on our historic Yazoo label has led him--like The White Stripes and The Black Keys--to translate the spirit of those seminal masters into a 21st century incarnation of elemental blues."

Rev. had this to say on Yazoo:

"The Yazoo Record label was always my favorite label growing up, and am so proud to be a part of the roster,” shares Reverend Peyton. “We now share a label with so many of our heroes. I can't wait for our fans and the rest of the world to hear this record.

This is timeless music for listeners now that owes as much to The Band, ZZ Top, and CCR as it does to Charley Patton."

California X

Website | Facebook | Video

In less than a year, Amherst trio California X have emerged from basements and practice spaces of Massachusetts as one of the tightest new garage punk bands in the Northeast, teetering between various pockets of the punk spectrum — drawing influence from the worlds of noisy 80s Western Mass rock, fuzzy 90s garage pop, and classic post-hardcore SST sounds. Fronted by main songwriter Lemmy Gurtowsky, their debut LP for Don Giovanni follows one prior release, a double A-side single “Sucker” b/w “Mummy” out via the UK’s Sound of Sweet Nothing label. From start to finish, the record’s eight hook-heavy tracks of melodic guitar punk could all be singles: the noisy vox and huge grungy riffs on “Curse of the Nightmare”; the slower-burning head-banging pulse of “Pond Rot”; the shoegaze-inflicted fleshed-out melodies of “Lemmy’s World”. Songs like “Hot Hed” feel so essential you’ll wonder how they’re not actually from some long-lost reel-to-reel tape of 1980s Western Mass punk. Appropriately, the band recorded the album in MA with Justin Pizzoferrato, previously a collaborator with Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr – and though at times California X sound like they could have been contemporaries with those bands, they’re carving out their own space in a lineage of their hometown’s punk history, bringing a fresh, dynamic take.

HELLYEAH

Website | Facebook | Video

Headbangers, take note! Don't waste time concerning yourself with the band members’ impressive resumes or with dwelling on their previous work. On BLOOD FOR BLOOD, HELLYEAH lives in the here and now.

BLOOD FOR BLOOD is the album that HELLYEAH –featuring Mudvayne's Chad Gray on vocals, Pantera's Vinnie Paul on drums and Nothingface's Tom Maxwell on guitar--has always wanted to make. "It's a defining record for HELLYEAH and for anyone on the fence," Paul declared, describing the record as "focused and with a clear direction."

After roughly eight years, three albums, countless tours as headliners and as participants on "can't miss" festival bills and hundreds of thousands of albums sold, HELLYEAH is making their biggest and boldest statement yet with BLOOD FOR BLOOD. They are going for the jugular and every song on the album clamps down and doesn't let go. They've exchanged some of the party-centric, good time sounds of past efforts for pure metallic fury and emotional introspection. The album sounds like a re-charged HELLYEAH, taken up many notches.

BLOOD FOR BLOOD is easily their most metallic album. It leaves a mark, thanks to songs like the angular, vengeful "DMF." There's also "Demons In The Dirt," a beast of a song birthed by the sort of anger that can't be faked; it will leave you wondering who pissed these guys off. "Gift" is dirty, rowdy rock with equal parts groove and swagger, but also possessed of the sort of punk rock energy that would make Motorhead fans turns their heads. Then there is moodier, more contemplative fare like "Moth to the Flame" or "Hush," which connect on an emotional, cellular level, proving that you can be incredibly heavy in ways other than loud and fast.

"We still have a love affair with this band and have a lot we want to say," explained Maxwell. He relished taking on a larger songwriting role and serving as the lead guitarist, which you can hear in the album's overall sound and in every note of his playing. "That magic is there for us, still. This is the record I've always wanted to make in this band, which has so many creative forces." Gray also shared that changes made the members closer. "We leaned on each other for support and inspiration," he said. As a result, the album is tight and the foundation is firm. Fans will be pleased.

The band opted to work with an outside producer for the first time ever, recruiting Las Vegas-based Canadian producer, Kevin Churko for the job. "To move forward, you have to make changes," said Paul, who wrote the music in Texas with Maxwell before heading to Hideout Recording Studio in Sin City to put it to tape.

"I am used to being a producer or co-producer and I wanted to see what would happen if I backed up and let someone take the reigns, leaving me to just be a drummer," said Paul, while admitting that vocals were the one area of production to which he couldn't do proper justice. The band was happy to allow Churko to provide a fresh perspective. Given Churko's resume, which is littered with names as diverse as Ozzy Osbourne, In This Moment and Five Finger Death Punch, the band knew he was the man who could pull the best performance possible out of Gray. The singer himself praised that Churko had a unique way of extracting what he wanted, saying, "You can be a drill sergeant and rule through intimidation or be laid back and cool, but get it done without pressure. He rules through cool."

Overall, the album has less of an obvious southern influence, with Paul deeming it "a metal record that also has melody. It lends itself to a diverse group of people."

As the mouthpiece for the band, Gray lets out his primal scream throughout the album, enabling him to properly and fully express his emotions in the music. "We want to shut people up a little, the people who have never given Hellyeah the time of day, for whatever reason," the singer said. "Whether you want it or not, it's undeniable. This

is an every night fistfight." Gray shared that he firmly believes in music as therapy and revels in helping the band's fans achieve catharsis with the music they have created.

He acknowledged the fact that the album is devoid of the party anthems that previously populated the Hellyeah catalog. "There is not a party song on this record, which we are kind of known for," he said. Gray continued "As much as I love those songs, they put us in a certain box that I've never been comfortable in since I'm not always like that." Instead, Gray and his bandmates wanted to show a depth, breadth and range of emotions and styles.

It was important for Gray to craft songs that were heavy on multiple levels at the same time. His approach was that heavy doesn't always mean as fast and as loud as possible. He said, "For me, personally, I was going through my emotional checklist, and how I wanted to be heavy both aggressively and emotionally. I need that balance." For example, the mercurial "Moth To The Flame" examines our base, animal instincts and drives. Despite knowing something is bad for you and will burn you, you still can’t pull yourself away from it.

"Black December" turns a critical eye on the year-end holiday season, and more deeply, the sadness that can permeate the end of the year. "It's a deadly month and depressing," Gray explained. "It's a hard month to get through with all the bullshit and commercialization. John Lennon and Dimebag Darrell were killed in December – that's like taking away things I need to live. I can't celebrate this whole December vibe."

For his part, Paul labeled his drumming on "Say When" as some of the most challenging of his career, going so far as to say he hasn't played like this since Pantera's 1994 opus Far Beyond Driven. "It's so off the chain, and I will be worn out every night when I play it," the kit minder said. While that may be bad for Paul, it's a very good thing for metal fans.

Maxwell also points to the more mainstream rock element of "Hush," which brings a sense of community to those who have had turbulent upbringings. The song is successful "at being heavy while being uplifting." That's not easy to do, but HELLYEAH make it seem and sound easy.

BLOOD FOR BLOOD marks a new chapter for Hellyeah. They pushed themselves to new limits, dared to embrace change and to take risks with their music by just doing what comes naturally. Gray said it best: "The more you listen to it, the more it will open up to you."

Go ahead. Open the door and crank the knobs on Hellyeah's BLOOD FOR BLOOD.

Suicide Silence

Website | Facebook | Video

Riverside, CA’s Suicide Silence formed in 2002. A quintet, the band specializes in that 21st century metal phenomenon known as deathcore, and was signed to international mega metal label Century Media. The band managed to get things rolling quickly, save for a few lineup changes, and went from formation to deal in a mere two years. In the meantime, Suicide Silence issued one pre-deal EP — the simply titled Suicide Silence — which saw the light of day on indie labels At the Deep End and SOS Records. Their Century Media debut album, The Cleansing, was released in September of 2007, and was produced by John Travis. The album was a bit of a mover and shaker in the genre, breaking through to the Top 100 on the Billboard charts, and would become one of the label’s biggest-ever sellers. Following the release of the album, the band toured steadily in the U.S. and Europe with Parkway Drive and Bury Your Dead. Members Mitch Lucker (vocals), Chris Garza (guitar), Mark Heylmun (guitar), Mike Bodkins (bass, but later replaced by Dan Kenny), and Alex Lopez (drums) had more reason to celebrate in 2008, as the band was added to the Mayhem metal festival, which hit stages that summer.

Academic probation could be the worst thing to ever happen to you, or it could be the quickest way to find yourself. ROB took the high road after being kicked off campus and since then has been finding himself one track at a time. ROB has worked with the people behind Dr. Dre, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and many more in studios in Los Angeles and Chicago and is now going to be performing live in cities across the mid-west!

Yonder Mountain String Band

Website | Facebook | Youtube

Yonder Mountain String Band has always played music by its own set of rules. Bending bluegrass, rock and countless other influences that the band cites, Yonder has pioneered a sound of their own. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance but they’ve created their own music that transcends any genre. Dave Johnston points out “What could be more pure than making your own music.” Yonder’s sound cannot be classified purely as “bluegrass” or “string music” but rather it’s an original sound created from “looking at music from [their] own experiences and doing the best job possible.” The band continues to play by their own rules on their latest record The Show.

The Colorado-based foursome has crisscrossed the country over the past eleven years playing such varied settings as festivals, rock clubs, Red Rocks Amphitheater in the band’s home state, and recently the Democratic National Convention in Denver at Mile High Stadium opening for Barack Obama. Their loyal fanbase has been built from this diverse setting of music venues as fans latched on to their genre-defying original sound.

The band has long cited such varied influences as the bluegrass of Del McCoury, Johnson Mountain Boys, Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe, Osborne Brothers as well as the punk rock of Bad Religion, Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys. Somewhere in between these two tent poles are early 20th Century composers and alternative rock bands like Grandaddy and Postal Service. It’s all funneled through the band’s unique chemistry, honed since they first met at an informal club performance in 1998. With band members writing individually, in different pairings and as a collective, the album proves that this group is a collection of creative peers and you can hear it in the rich tapestry of music that makes up The Show.

The band is a regular at bluegrass festivals like the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and the band’s own Northwest String Summit as well as massive multi-stage events like Austin City Limits Festival, Bonnaroo and Rothbury. Fans are no doubt drawn to Yonder’s anything goes attitude, its humor and passion about music, and the band’s ability to stretch out live. “We love that people come to see us,” Johnston points out. “Everyone appreciates good music. Some people want to go to a recital and some people want to party.”

But as its fans know, Yonder Mountain String Band does something a little different, more than just a musical party. The Show is the band’s most varied and versatile album to date, and the summation of the journey that these guys are on together. It’s bluegrass for the masses, acoustic tunes filled with dazzling chops, and it’s fun to boot. The humble Johnston sounds as surprised as anyone by the band’s success, but knows that it all boiled down to chemistry, which has never changed. “Somewhere down there we all kind of recognized that we had something unique,” he explains. “But there is no way I could have imagined the amount of success that the band has had.”

Born unto the wilderness and raised by wolves, these five young men have lived their lives never knowing fear. They have spent years honing their craft and have grown from tiny defenseless cubs to those that lead the pack. Over time they learned to accept that it was their obligation, their responsibility, to provide music lovers with quality live reproductions of their most cherished songs. These men could have taken the quick route to success. They could have shown the world’s ears the most beautifully written music ever created, but that’s all been done before. Instead they chose to honor those that have gone before and embrace the music of the past, paying tribute to such artists as Dire Straits, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, and The Police. If you love it, they have played it and will so again.

Thus was formed Lazerwolfe.

G-Eazy

Website | Facebook | Video

Arriving on-stage with a pompadour and a leather jacket, G-Eazy became known as "the James Dean of rap", but his music is much less troubled than that name might imply, having crossed over to the mainstream with his re-interpolation of the rock & roll classic "Runaround Sue." Born Gerald Earl Gillum in Oakland, California, G-Eazy launched his career while still in college, heading up a hip-hop crew named the Bay Boyz while dropping his solo debut, The Epidemic LP, in 2009. Two years later, his mixtape The Endless Summer landed with his hit redo of Dion's "Runaround Sue" included, while 2012 saw him hit the road with Hoodie Allen and also join the Van's Warped Tour. In 2014 he returned with the album These Things Happen.
