Yellowcard

Website | Facebook | Video

For their seventh studio album, Lift a Sail, Yellowcard had a simple but ambitious goal: to outdo everything they’d ever done before. The guitars and drums had to hit harder; the songwriting had to cut deeper; the choruses had to reach heights only hinted at on their previous outings. Frontman Ryan Key believes he and his bandmates—guitarist Ryan Mendez, violinist Sean Mackin, bassist Josh Portman and guest drummer Nate Young (Anberlin)—succeeded on all those fronts. “We really feel like we got where we wanted to be, and made a proper rock ‘n’ roll record,” Key says proudly.

Recorded with longtime producer Neal Avron at The Casita, his studio in Los Angeles, Lift a Sail is Yellowcard’s first album for Razor & Tie and by far their most dynamic, full of massive rock anthems and haunting ballads shot through with Mackin’s evocative violin and string arrangements. Young, who recorded his drum tracks at East West Studios, gives songs like “Transmission Home” an extra hard rock kick, over which Ryan Mendez’ guitars have never churned with more intensity.

After two of the most eventful years of his life, it’s the kind of emotionally cathartic record Key needed his band to make. In 2012, while on tour in Europe, Key met the woman who would become his wife, Alyona Alekhina, a professional snowboarder from Russia. By the end of the year they were engaged—but just a few months later, while training in California, Alekhina suffered a spinal cord injury, causing paralysis below the waist.

In the end, the tragic turn of events brought Key and Alekhina even closer together. Key was at her side for months in intensive care and through the beginnings of physical therapy. They were married in the ICU. “It's been an unimaginable challenge for us both,” Key admits, but his wife’s will and determination through it all has been an inspiration. “She’s incredible. She is by far the strongest human being I’ve ever known, and I know she will walk again."

Key’s whirlwind journey with Alekhina inevitably influenced the lyrics on Lift a Sail, as on the ballad “Madrid,” named after the city in which they met, and album standout “One Bedroom,” which Key wrote about the apartment the couple shared in Denver during the first part of her rehabilitation. Over acoustic guitars that gradually give way to an anthemic power ballad, Key sings, “You’re the one for the rest of time.”

“It was just the two of us most of the time and that apartment seemed to be the only safe place on Earth for us both,” Key remembers. “We went through so much, we shared so much there. So the song is sort of a love letter…letting her know what she means to me.”

“Obviously that was a massive life event,” he adds, “and as a songwriter, it’s hard not to put that down on paper. A lot of the record is about she and I and what we’ve been through.”

Another of Key’s favorite songs on the record, “My Mountain,” is about another important person in his life: his grandfather, a poet who passed away earlier this year and who Yellowcard fans will know as the voice on “Dear Bobbie” from 2007’s Paper Walls. His dying wish was to have his ashes scattered on a family property in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, next to one of his daughters, Key’s aunt, who passed away two years earlier. “As my grandfather was passing, in hospice, he kept asking my mom if he was on the mountain yet. And my mom kept saying, ‘You’ll be there soon.’” Key’s lyrics to “My Mountain” imagine his grandfather looking out from his final resting place: “I have found my mountain/I can be with her/When I finally came across/I recovered all I lost.”

To match the most profound lyrics of Key’s career, Yellowcard had to step up with some of their most risk-taking music. “MSK,” in particular, stands out with a sparse arrangement that sets Key’s emotive vocals against a backdrop of Mackin’s swirling violin and atmospheric keys and electronics, the latter programmed by Nate Young. It’s one of the few Yellowcard tracks ever to feature no guitars or drums at all. “It’s a bold leap for us,” Key declares.

Elsewhere on Lift a Sail, Yellowcard returned their early ‘90s alt-rock roots, finding inspiration in the dense guitars of bands they grew up listening to like Nirvana, Filter, Foo Fighters, and Smashing Pumpkins. Ryan Mendez’ raging guitar parts on hard-charging anthems like “Crash the Gates” and “Illuminate” channel those ‘90s influences into songs that push Yellowcard’s sound well beyond their pop-punk origins—especially when Sean Mackin’s increasingly sophisticated strings come swooping in to take the songs to another level.

“We really changed lanes, I think,” Key explains. “It’s still a massive rock record, but there were a lot of choices made while we were writing the songs that were new for us. We continued to challenge ourselves throughout the writing and recording process.”

The song that perhaps best sums up that attitude is the anthemic title track, whose resilient lyrics (“If a storm blows in on me/I am ready now”) reflect both the inspiring determination of Key’s wife and Yellowcard’s increasingly fearless approach to making music. “It’s the one song that really encompasses this whole experience,” Key declares, looking back on everything he, his family and his bandmates have been through over the past year. “It’s saying, we’re ready for anything now.”

INTER ARMA

Website | Facebook | Youtube

Formed in 2006, Inter Arma is one of the most talked about heavy bands to come out of Richmond, VA. The group (consisting of T.J. Childers - Drums, Steven Russell - Guitars, Trey Dalton - Guitars, Mike Paparo - Vocals, Joe Kerkes - Bass) formed in 2006 and released their crushing debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010 to much critical acclaim. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. After Sundown's release, Inter Arma began a rigorous DIY touring schedule, playing shows with bands like Cough, Krallice, Mutant Supremacy, Castevet, Royal Thunder, Ken Mode, The Body, Hull, Batillus, Black Breath and many more.

In 2012, the band released a 12" EP entitled Destroyer via Toxic Assets Records. Based on the strength of this EP they immediately signed to Relapse Records and embarked on a self-booked month long tour. The band excitedly commented, "It's pretty crazy to think that we'll be tacitly associated with bands like Neurosis, Amorphis, Human Remains, diSEMBOWELMENT, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Incantation, Mastodon, et al. That's a pretty high standard to hold yourself to, but we'll give it our damndest." Expect Inter Arma to deliver on their promise.

The London Souls

Website | Facebook | Video

The London Souls’ unique reinterpretation of classic hard-hitting rock and roll formulae recalls elements of the past with an ever-present boundless energy, fit to cement their place in the future.

Tash and Chris have been nothing short of a best-kept-secret among New York City concertgoers since the band’s formation in 2008, building a fervent and dynamic fan base leveraged by their ever-substantiated reputation for consistently well-rehearsed and impassioned, explosive live performances.

The band’s celebrated sound and spirit draws significant influence from the driving force of British rock pioneers Cream and Led Zeppelin, to billowing and bouncing funk and soul, to the layered harmonies and memorable hooks of The Beatles and The Hollies, to the contemporary psychedelia of My Morning Jacket among many more.

Sons of Bill

Website | Facebook | Video

“This is a record that takes me back to some of the creative heights we achieved in Wilco,” says producer Ken Coomer about Sons of Bill’s latest LP Love and Logic, due out on Thirty Tigers September 30, 2014. “I’m only interested in making records that are still going to be relevant ten years from now, and this is one of them. It’s unmistakably the real thing.”

This is an ambitious album for the three brothers Sam, Abe, and James Wilson, who share equal duty singing and writing throughout Love and Logic. The Virginia roots obviously run deep, with dreamy pedal steel, banjo, and three part harmonies that could have only been learned at church. But the record moves into enough layered pop productions and rock and roll bravado throughout to keep you guessing as to just who these boys are, and what they’ve been listening to.

It’s easy to say that Sons of Bill can sound more like Townes Van Zandt or early R.E.M. depending on the track, even moving into their own brand of down-home psychedelia that American Songwriter described as a “countrified Pink Floyd.” But the real achievement of Love and Logic is the songwriting, the Wilson brothers’ ability to craft literate and deeply introspective lyrics while still managing to deliver it all as a rock and roll band. It’s a soul-searcher’s soundtrack for an over-stimulated age. A roots rock album that stands out in 2014.

Sons of Bill became more than Charlottesville’s best kept secret with the release of the Sirens LP, a brash rock and roll record, which debuted on the Billboard top 200 and #12 on the Heatseekers chart in 2012. The band toured extensively on both sides of the Atlantic for a year and a half and gained some notoriety for their fiery live performances and road dog work ethic. But Love and Logic certainly marks a turning point for the band– a more sober, reflective, version of themselves– the sound of a band coming into its own.

Josh Hoyer and The Shadowboxers

Website | Facebook | Video

JOSH HOYER and The Shadowboxers is a project formed in late 2012 in famed blues town Lincoln, Nebraska. For the last 15 years, Hoyer has been very in demand as a performer in his previous bands, as a solo artist behind the piano and as a session musician and arranger. Spending much of his time booking and promoting in Lincoln at the legendary Zoo Bar and beyond, Hoyer is an influential part of the funk, soul and blues youth movement.

His current 9-piece Soul band includes some of the areas most revered and accomplished musicians, many of whom have toured nationally and internationally, teach music and are asked to back up bands live and in the studio. The band’s sound and passion come from their deep respect, knowledge of and passion for blues, Americana, soul, funk, and many other styles of music.

2013 was a highly successful first year for the band in which they played dozens of festivals, cultivated a large following in a 3-state area, represented NE in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis and were named 2013’s Best Soul/R&B at the Omaha Entertainment Awards.

In January 2014, they released their self-titled debut album to a raucous crowd of 700 at the Bourbon Theatre. Borrowing from Stax, Motown, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the album blends the classic sounds of Soul and R&B, yet has a vibe and sound that is fresh and unique. Each of the 8 songs has a great groove, exceptional lyrical, vocal and instrumental performance, artful arrangement and challenges to be stacked up to many of the best songs in any Soul catalog.

“Josh Hoyer and The Shadowboxers are coming out firing on all cylinders, smashing styles together to come up with their own groove. Funky soul packed with power, it’s Dr. John meets Al Green backed by Booker T and the MGs. You know, the good stuff.”-Charlie Johnson, Producer/Engineer Fuse Recording

“Joshua Hoyer is one of the Lincoln-Omaha scene’s finest songwriters. His new project gives equal weight to his great songs, his rich, soulful, distinctive vocals and his ability to put together funky, driving and passionate collaborations with his fellow musicians. This band’s sound soars and fills up the dance floor with funky joy.” –B.J.Huchtemann, senior contributing writer, The Reader, Omaha, NE

Starlito

Website | Facebook | Video

Originally known as All Star Cashville Prince, rapper Jermaine Eric Shute changed his moniker to Starlito after leaving Birdman's Cash Money label. Based out of Nashville, Shute made his official debut in 2005 with his independent album Prince of the Ville. He signed with Cash Money that same year and released the successful single "Grey Goose" with guest stars Young Jeezy and Yo Gotti. The single "Crazy" was released in 2007 with label mate Lil Wayne as guest, and by 2009 he was known as just All Star with a planned album, Cash Money Laundering. The album never appeared and All Star was off the label in 2010, the same year he changed his name officially with the mixtape Starlito's Way 3. His Ultimate Warrior mixtape followed in 2011, while 2012 saw the release of the official album Mental WARfare on the Grind Hard label. The next year the label released Cold Turkey, an album that would place in Top 10 of the hip-hop charts at both iTunes and Google Play.

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. 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."
