Hey!Hello! unveil the video for their new single Automatic Love, a pure unadulterated volume driven rock’ n’roll anthem.
Indulge now in this no holds barred taste of what it's like to witness Hey!Hello! live
“The video is a deliberately stark introduction of the new line up, complete with new vocalist Hollis. We didn't want anything flash, and preferred to let the music be the main focus. It's raw, it's loud and sounds like the weekend.
This is the sound of partying, sex, trouble, fun, hangovers and extreme behaviour of all persuasions, take from that what you will.
We're bringing rock n roll back in 2016, and you better believe we mean that 100%.”

Hey! Hello! is - Hollis (vocals) the hyper one, Ai (drums) the calm one, Toshi (bass) the resourceful one, The Rev (lead guitar) the cool one and Ginger (rhythm guitar) the wise one.

The Michigan pop-punk/hardcore, who has toured with Backslashes and High Hopes, has also launched the lead single off the album entitled “Home At Heart.”
“This new album is big for us because it details the biggest changes that have happened over our lives including an ending engagement, changing friendships, and love. We tried to focus on playing something different each time.” - Jacob Cardona (Drums)

About Get Stoked:
Get Stoked was started when Cameron Wheeler and Jacob Cardona began writing music and starting to search for others to bring back the live music scene in Mt Pleasant. Ryan Turek along with Ben Jensen eventually jumped on the crazy train quickly followed by Zach Smith to complete the lineup. Get Stoked is a pop punk/hardcore quintet that blends hard melodic breakdowns with a new take on pop punk. Get Stoked brings lively in-your-face music with live performances that match in intensity. Combined with lyrics ranging from college experiences to forward progress in life, Get Stoked never plays that same thing twice and keeps the audience guessing what will happen next!
Seventh is a post-metal band from Venice, Italy. In 2015, they recorded their first full-length and concept album "The Herald" which will be released in early 2016. The Album has been recorded and produced by SEVENTH, Cesco (drummer from ZEIT, italian hardcore band) and Pablo at Putrefashion Studios and it has been mastered by "Peo" Spigato at Hate Studio, Rosà (VI). "The Herald" has been written, produced and recorded by former members Max and Tum, who worked together with producer Pablo Davilla in order to create a concept album which focuses on the utmost importance of being a conscious man in a world of cultural and religion absurdities. The album represents the allegorical journey of an ordinary man, who struggles to get rid of restrictions of any kind. His journey begins where his enlightenment as a free human being begins.
The deadly dawn of a new ENTOMBED A.D. chapter will be opened on February 26th, 2016 with a new album full of death, rock and roll. The band is proud to present a first appetizer called 'Midas In Reverse'. Check it out here:
Nico Elgstrand (guitar/backing vocals) comments the creation of “Dead Dawn” as follows: “I think it is safe to say that all of us in the band feel like we just have given birth to one tank each. Meaning the pregnancy and delivery was everything but pleasant! Still, when watching our newest offspring play with their cannons and bombs, blasting everything around them to bits, we feel, just like any parent, pride and joy and wouldn’t have it undone for all the money in the world!”
Rounded off by a striking cover artwork created by Watain-frontman Erik Danielsson, and backed up by a versatile production team consisting of Tom Van Heesch and Jacob Hellner of Big Island Sound, Stockholm as well as Nico Elgstrand himself, who produced a majority of the tracks whereas Svante Forsbäck of Chartmakers mastered this new beast, “Dead Dawn” looks and sounds great, too.
Following a successful live campaign around “Back To The Front” including an European tour with Grave in 2014 as well as tons of festival appearances, ENTOMBED A.D. shall hit the road again shortly before releasing “Dead Dawn”. First up is the Europa Blasphemia tour in January/February 2016 with Behemoth, Abbath, and Inquisition, followed by an extensive US run in the spring (more details soon) and a good run of summer festivals like Hellfest (FR), Wacken (DE), Summer Breeze (DE), and many more.

‘THE RENEGADES’ is not only the title track of the band’s brand new album going to hit stores on February 26. It’s a new beginning for YASHIN - a movement for every music lover to become part of as the associated music video is driving the point home.
Watch it here:
Following two independent album releases, support slots of heavyweights Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach and Black Veil Brides and playing at Download and Sonisphere festival YASHIN are back from their silence and plan to conquer everything in their path.
The band’s third album ‘The Renegades’ is a 12-track rollercoaster featuring heavy riffs, big hooks and bursting with melody.
With the first single release ‘Dorothy Gale’, YASHIN set the tone with their heaviest song to date. The second single ‘THE RENEGADES’ has been chosen deliberately as singer Kevin Miles says:
"...'We are The Renegades' has become a call to arms amongst Yashin fans. An opportunity for likeminded individuals to forget the mundane aspects of their every day working life and come together through a passion for music..."
YASHIN ‘The Renegades’ single is available for digital download NOW. The eponymous album can be pre-orderd on Amazon and iTunes.
Catch Yashin at the following headline shows
March 4th – Manchester Satans Hollow 5th – London Borderline 6th – Nottingham Rock City Basement
