For The Nude Party, nearly a decade has flown by in the blink of an eye. In that time, the New York-based band has released a pair of well-received albums, an EP and played numerous shows. The band has historically worked with a producer to help them create a distinct sound in their records but with their latest effort, Rides On, the band decided to handle production duties by themselves. The hands-on approach allowed the band to have as much fun creating as they ever had at any other point in their career. They recorded over 20 songs, including some that dabbled in electro-pop and stripped-down country before settling on the final 14 songs containing the best elements of ‘70s-driven blues rock. The relaxed vibe of the session also unleashed a diverse sonic texture compared to their previous releases. Sonically, the album is reminiscent of Sticky Fingers-era Stones, but the lyrics are mini-vignettes that embody the spirit of what The Nude Party are going for — and their growth as a band. Rides On, the band confidently says, is their best record. It’s also the most homegrown and organic record The Nude Party has created to date.

Mascot Records is proud to announce the release of 'Voices', the new studio album from blues rockers, The Cold Stares, available everywhere March 10th, 2023. For the past ten years, The Cold Stares have toured the world relentlessly as a duo, blowing away audiences across the US and Europe with a fierce, blistering live show that belied their bare bones, guitar-and-drums setup. Now, the band is embracing a whole new kind of chemistry as they launch their next chapter, adding a third member and channelling the classic power trio sound they grew up on with their explosive new album, Voices. "The chains were off when we made this record," says guitarist/singer Chris Tapp. "Suddenly, all the parameters that had dictated what we could and couldn't do just disappeared and we were free to create whatever sound we wanted." That sense of total artistic liberation lies at the heart of Voices, which pushes The Cold Stares' signature mix of blues, southern, and hard rock to bold new heights. Recorded almost entirely over the course of just two days with producer/engineer/mixer Mark Needham (Taj Mahal, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Walk the Moon, Fleetwood Mac), the album stands as the band's most mature, eclectic collection yet, balancing gritty muscle and tender emotion in equal measure.

If anybody knows how to fight, it's Otherwise. The Las Vegas quartet Adrian Patrick [vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar], Nick Bedrosian [bass], and Joe Conner [drums]-have weathered personal tragedy and trauma, withstood the tides of the industry, and still stand tall. If anything, the boys are stronger than ever with a one-two punch of airtight guitars, stadium-shaking grooves, and hypnotic hard-hitting hooks. Over the past decade, they've clawed their way through the rock 'n' roll ranks and emerged as an unbreakable force. Their catalog spans fan favorites such as True Love Never Dies [2012], Peace At All Costs [2014], and Sleeping Lions [2017]. Signature anthem "Soldiers" has amassed over 66 million Spotify streams and counting-unprecedented for a rock band of any era. Meanwhile, 2019's Defy kickstarted another chapter. "Crossfire" eclipsed 5.1 million Spotify streams followed by "Lifted" with 3.7 million Spotify streams. Loudwire hailed the latter as "a stomp-clap rocker." On this trip, they've also ignited the stages of Welcome To Rockville, Rocklahoma, and Shiprocked! As well as supporting Stone Sour, Papa Roach, and more. However, their fifth full-length album, Gawdzillionaire [Mascot Label Group], trumpets their fighting spirit louder than ever before.

CELEBRATING A QUARTER CENTURY OF BLACKMORE'S NIGHT. 25th ANNIVERSARY RE-MIXED EDITION OF THE MILESTONE DEBUT ALBUM "SHADOW OF THE MOON"

The band's debut album "Shadow Of The Moon" (1997) was not only Blackmore's deliberate radical cut from his previous life as celebrated rockstar in Deep Purple and Rainbow; it was a ground-breaking statement of his artistic ideals: mainly acoustic music, influenced by the songs of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance with a touch of genius that made them sound contemporary.

"Shadow Of The Moon" was a milestone album. It encompasses everything that Blackmore's Night stand for to this day: beautiful melodies and warm atmospheres that are able to reach the soul as well as joyful songs to dance to and to celebrate.

Those who really understood Ritchie Blackmore 's music in his rock years, could immediately find the essence of his greatness in Blackmore 's Night, supported by lyrics that fit his music more than ever before.

March 2023, the 25th Anniversary Edition of "Shadow Of The Moon" will be released worldwide. The album was converted in HD audio from the original recording, and it has been fully remixed, allowing the original performance to shine in its original glory. The original iconic artwork has been refreshed and reworked to celebrate the anniversary.

"More Than This is an incredibly deeply personal album to myself lyrically. But the whole band has put their heart and soul into this record. We're proud of it," says lead singer and songwriter Conrad Ellis. "It's a very personal album to me on the lyrical level, because it's all about the hurdles I've overcome in life, over the past two or three years, and coming out the other side of is as a person. It's all about growth and change. I think a lot of people will connect to it on a deep level, that's what I'm hoping anyway."

The title asks, "Do you want to be more than you are? Do you want more on the financial side of things? Do you just want more from life in general, or do you want more from your love life? You want more from your job. Do you think you deserve that in some areas?"

"'More Than This' doesn't come from a sense of entitlement," stresses Ellis. "It comes from wanting to make something of yourself and your life."

“Remember… You Must Die” is the sound of extreme metal stalwarts SUICIDE SILENCE channeling the spirit of their classic albums like “The Cleansing” or “No Time to Bleed” and delivering a modern deathcore masterpiece. Produced by Taylor Young (Xibalba, Vitriol, Drain), “Remember… You Must Die” taps into the rawness and energy in SUICIDE SILENCE’s DNA to thunderous result. Tracks like the album’s first single, “You Must Die” and its follow-up “Capable of Violence (N.F.W.)” are proof positive that SUICIDE SILENCE are far from mellowing with time. With this record, they’re going deeper and darker, the songs often lyrically being a meditation on death and finality. Says the band: “Every second the clock ticks we grow closer to death and what happens after our short bout with time is a total mystery. ‘Remember… You Must Die’ was written as a reminder to remember death and to not let time be our master.” With artwork by acclaimed Necrosurrealist artist David Van Gough, SUICIDE SILENCE isn’t merely looking back in anger. They’re starring forward and setting the standard for metallic extremity in the process.

'Oh Me Oh My' is both elegant and ferocious. It is stirring in one moment and a balm the next. It details histories both global and personal. Lonnie Holley's harrowing youth and young manhood in the Jim Crow South are well-told at this point - his sale into a different home as a child for just a bottle of whiskey; his abuse at the infamous Mount Meigs correctional facility for boys; the destruction of his art environment by the Birmingham airport expansion. But Holley's music is less a performance of pain endured and more a display of perseverance, of relentless hope. Intricately and lovingly produced by LA's Jacknife Lee (The Cure, REM, Modest Mouse), there is both kinetic, shortwave funk that call to mind Brian Eno's 'My Life in the Bush of Ghosts' and the deep space satellite sounds of Eno's ambient works. But it's a tremendous achievement in sonics all it's own.It's also an achievement in the refinement of Holley's impressionistic, stream-of-consciousness lyrics. On the title track which deals with mutual human understanding", Holley is able to make a profound point as ever in far fewer phrases: "The deeper we go, the more chances there are, for us to understand the oh-me's and understand the oh-my's." Illustrious collaborators like Michael Stipe, Sharon Van Etten, Moor Mother and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver serve as not only as choirs of angels and co-pilots to give Lonnie's message flight but as proof of Lonnie Holley as a galvanizing, iconoclastic force across the music community.

Shalom

Sublimation [LP]

Vinyl: $28.98 UNAVAILABLE

Shalom makes strikingly direct music with such emotional openness and clarity that each track on her debut album Sublimation feels like a quiet revelation. While the Brooklyn-based, South Africa-raised artist writes fearlessly personal songs about moments in her life combining the storytelling of Lucy Dacus with the urgency of Indigo De Souza, her honesty is so blunt it’s inviting. Her lyrics clear whatever tension there is to make room for catharsis. These 13 tracks are a reflection of the many sides of herself with stories of heartbreak, feeling like an outsider, self-medicating and partying, and ultimately choosing love over fear. While she paints the edges of indie rock, Shalom along with her collaborator Ryan Hemsworth (Quarter-Life Crisis) team up for challenging and vivid arrangements that are danceable, driving, and also delicate.

The seeds of the collaboration were planted in 2017 when Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars toured together on the European leg of his 24K Magic World Tour. One late-night jam session on the road unlocked immediate chemistry. Just before the world slipped into quarantine, Bruno called Anderson: “Remember that idea we had back in 2017? Let’s do it.” One studio session grew into to a months-long collaboration, culminating the “setlist of doom.” Legendary Bootsy Collins christened Silk Sonic and came in as the “special guest host” for An Evening With Silk Sonic, their debut album.Silk Sonic was finally set free on March 5th, 2021. Within less than a month, their debut single “Leave The Door Open” cracked over 230 million streams, and currently sits at 1.2 billion streams with over 346 million official video views.
