Last Flight To Pluto’s stunning album ‘See You At The End’ is out now

Last Flight To Pluto’s stunning debut album ‘See You At The End’ is out now.

“Last flight to Pluto are certainly something of an enigma….. “We’ve a sound where all of our influences have been mashed up together,” explains singer Alice Freya, “from that big Rush sound to Chili Peppers pop”….. the young band have successfully crafted an album that’s as eccentrically nostalgic as it is contemporary.”
Limelight, Prog Magazine

“Speckles of guitar and sighing keys create an atmosphere of trepidation.
Thrilling drums spill out of the edges and then the riffs build into an intoxicating climax.
Vocals from Alice are soft and floral. This is an experience. A true joy.”
Raw Ramp

Last Flight To Pluto’s fabulous single ‘Heavy Situation’ taken from their debut album ‘See You At The End’ is out now. With influences seeping in from several decades of music, this delightful progressive rock track artfully melds Alice Freya’s ethereal voice with switches in tempos and emphasis and is the perfect way to introduce Last Flight To Pluto.

Last Flight To Pluto is fronted by Alice Freya, a veteran of the cover circuit in her homeland of South Wales, UK. Herself and drummer Daz Joseph, who some might remember from 90’s prog band EZRA, had had enough of playing vacuous pop to satisfy others.’It’s about time we start playing music that we enjoy, but if we played a Rush cover, half of our crowd would leave!’ Freya said. That sparked an idea in Daz’s head, it felt like the right time to try and get back on the prog scene after years of absence.

It was easy finding the right musicians to play on ‘See You At The End’ after all, the covers band had played hundreds of gigs together, apart from bass player and Rockfield engineer Jon Con, but Freya and Joseph had always admired his playing and decided he was the right man for the job. 17 year old ‘whizz kid’ guitarist Jack ‘mcGinty’ Parry has been playing since the age of 4, he has a great old school approach to his playing. With some of his influences being: David Gilmour, Graham Headley Williams (Racing Cars) and Alex Lifeson.

‘What on earth is prog?’ asked other vocalist Brett Andrews, who was also in his teens during the album recording. His taste and style of music being R&B, he had a big eye opener in the studio but he kept an open mind and discovered a new love in progressive rock.

With most of the players being under 30, ‘See you at the end’ has a new modern twist on prog but their influences – Rush, Massive Attack, Genesis, King Crimson, Camel and Pink Floyd, really shine throughout their 6 track, hour long album ‘See You At The End’.

Esther’s stunning debut EP ‘Overthrone’ is out now

ESTHER release their stunning debut EP ‘Overthrone’ on July 22nd

Single ‘As One’ out now.
This wonderful, lilting and ridiculously catchy track is a phenomenal showcase of ESTHER’s talents and with their new EP ‘Overthrone’, huge things are expected from this South Coast band.

New and reformed in 2016, ESTHER represents the comeback of 4-piece Audioshock, a lovechild of acts such as Placebo, Foals, The Editors & Enter Shikari. The band sees original Audioshock members Jack Kinden & Max Minus (Vox/Keys) welcome new members Arron Moss (Bass) & Ross Standen (Drums) in a new venture which retains their synth-driven wall-of-sound whilst incorporating heavier & darker rock influences.

ESTHER’s first single ‘As One’ is released on 24th June, with their first EP ‘Overthrone’ to follow in July. The track seeks to be a festival highlight in 2016, incorporating an upbeat, happy-go-lucky vibe with eerie and dark overtones, bringing over their loyal fan base from previous entity Audioshock. Currently self-sufficient ESTHER are setting the foundations for their new tracks with a bank of music videos, press photos, band branding and continually improving their live show through recording, playback and feedback.

ESTHER’s debut tracks were recorded at Hidden Track Studios in collaboration with Oliver Craggs (Feed the Rhino), introducing a new and innovative approach to the electronic rock hybrid. ESTHER’s incorporation of projection & visuals into their live show only heightens the hair-raising and hard-hitting sound they aim to create, seeking to intrigue fans of all music genres even at this very early stage.

Past achievements as Audioshock has seen the band gain support from industry platforms such as Fearne Cotton, Greg James, Scott Mills & Annie Mac (R1), Dermot O’Leary (R2), BBC Introducing (locally & nationally), public Facebook recommendation from Chris Martin of multiplatinum band Coldplay (“Great new band……keep your eyes on these guys”).
The band’s tracks have also attracted the attention of artists in the electronic scene, with remixes by XKore being aired by Modestep on Mistajam’s Daily Dose of Dubstep (R1).

Previous live performances in the UK and Europe have seen the band supporting acts such as Steve Aoki, Friction, Pendulum and Nathan Connolly of Snow Patrol. And have gained praise from the likes of Annie Nightingale.

The two videos for Audioshock’s first single ‘Skyline’ earned them over 80,000 views with the love continuing to grow:
Follow up single ‘Centuries’ followed a similar positive trend with increased popularity at 129,000 views and a plethora of positive feedback in the ongoing comment feed of the bands YouTube channel:

Audioshock also collaborated with sax legend Gary Barnacle for their most recent release ‘Tides’ (link below)

One For Sorrow new album ‘Blood Songs’ out now

New album ‘Blood Songs’ out now

“One For Sorrow will blow your gonads into the next time-zone, guaran-fucking-teed.”
Alexander Milas, Metal Hammer Editor

One For Sorrow is the creative spark that emerged when vocalist Joe Thompson and guitarist Jason Putter set upon creating a band focusing on what sounds and feels right, rather than what set of tickbox elements make a sound that fits into the sub-genre of choice. Both were fans of the Groove Metal sound, but by just tapping into the down tuned style and rhythmical feel of the genre while infusing it with guitar and vocal elements more influenced by classic 60s and 70s blues rock, they create something more powerful.

Once they had completed their lineup by enlisting the slamming rhythm section of Snakes Louis (bass) and Ross Quinn (drums), One For Sorrow then quickly proceeded to become one of London’s most notorious crowd pleasers. Rocking the metal scene and reaching beyond to a wider audience.

In the last four years they have gone from wowing the local London metal scene to a UK music festival regular whilst picking up an ever increasing loyal fan base along the way. With one well received EP under their belts and their debut album launched by Metal Hammer as part of their Black Sabbath special, One For Sorrow have tapped into a creative vein that metal fans were sorely in need off. Expect more big things from this compelling quartet.

Upcoming shows:
Thursday 28th July, The Unicorn, Camden with Honky, Desert Storm, Johnny Halifax and the Howling Truth, free entry
Saturday 24th September, O2 Academy, Birmingham with XV11, Pilla and Construct
More dates tbc

Band Links:

One For Sorrow are: Joe Thompson – vocals, Jason Putter – guitars, Snakes Louis – bass, Ross Sorrow – drums

Doomsday Outlaw’s huge new video for ‘Bring You Pain’ is out now

DOOMSDAY OUTLAW follow up their hugely successful release of ‘Suffer More’ with their new video for the single ‘Bring You Pain’.

‘Bring You Pain’ is a foot stomping monster rocker, heavily infused with blues and huge riffs and guaranteed to get the party started. If you like your rock big, bluesy and brash then this is a must!

Bassist Indy Chanda had this to say:
“The song’s about everyone who’s had a beautiful relationship implode on them and dealt with it in, perhaps, not the healthiest way – by going out and making questionable decisions and being a bit of a dick. But rather than make it miserable and angry – we decided to hitch it up to a neck-snapping blues stomper and celebrate the fact that you sometimes need to let off some steam!”

Quote from Powerplay Magazine on this new album:
“Holy shit this album had me tied up in knots it is that good. It is quite simply….perfect”

‘Suffer More’
Hot on the heels of their last year’s release, the critcially acclaimed ‘Black River’, Midlands rising rockers Doomsday Outlaw spread their wings on their latest record ‘Suffer More’, bringing their trademark Southern rock and metal alongside dirty heavy blues – the fifteen tracks of heavy groove-laden rock taking in Black Stone Cherry and Zakk Wylde, and weaving in classic Maiden, Faces and Hendrix to their sound. Play LOUD!

Doomsday Outlaw are:
Phil Poole – Vocals
Steve Broughton – Guitar
Gavin Mills – Guitar
Indy Chanda – Bass
John ‘Ironfoot’ Willis – Drums
John Willis makes his own ‘Ironfoot’ brand drums, which is pretty damn amazing! Indy is endorsed by Italia Basses through JHS, and Phil is endorsed by VocalZone.

‘Black River’ & ‘Suffer More’ available from all usual outlets &:
