Failure Anthem get right to the point on their full-length debut album for Razor & Tie, the cleverly titled First World Problems. The Greensboro, NC quintet—JD [vocals], Ryan [bass, backup vocals], Kile [guitar], Zane [drums], and Wil [rhythm guitars]—architect eleven impactful, invigorating, and infectious anthems with hooks so robust that modern bells and whistles just aren’t necessary. It’s a tried-and-true approach that feels timeless as the boys make hard rock hypnotic again. Like a big screen blockbuster you can’t turn away from, they don’t waste any time reaching the climax either… The group began to take shape in the summer of 2013. While working at a local Greensboro studio alongside his friend Drew Fulk and assistant engineer Zane, Kile penned his own music. He spent the day handling recording for everybody from Nightmares to Cane Hill and producing and co-writing with the likes of Motionless In White, while nights were devoted to a new project with Zane, Wil, and Ryan. After watching a Facebook video of JD covering Matt Anderson’s “Coal Mining Blues,” Kile reached out to the vocalist. “Failure Anthem has an underdog meaning,” says Kile. “It’s the outlier concept. The person who is allegedly not built to succeed is actually the one who comes out on top. That message is in the music.” For Failure Anthem, it’s all about sharing that uplifting message via the songs in the end. “I’d like for people to gain inspiration, knowledge, and strength when they listen to Failure Anthem,” JD concludes. “It’s meant to push you through the day.” That’s the point of all great rock music…For more information, visit www.failureanthem.com

Holing up in a Burbank, California studio, Trapt began to prolifically crank out songs for their 5th album "Reborn." The record's first single "Bring It" served as the catalyst, sparking a veritable flurry of creativity. Fusing together propulsive guitars and an unforgettable upbeat refrain, it's an anthem on par with the band's biggest hits. You could easily hear this piping through an arena with a rallying power. Expanding their patented hard rock sound, the group also seamlessly incorporated flourishes of electronic music to punctuate the drama and energy. Drawing from an ever expanding pallet of electronic and organic sounds and instruments, Brown embraced another side of himself and imbued it into Reborn. Trapt have worked for well over a decade to reach this point. Their 2002 self-titled debut surpassed sales of 2 million units, and its lead-off single "Headstrong" was ranked the #1 alternative song and #8 rock song by Billboard. They were a featured act on Rock Band and Tap Tap Revenge 2, and they also fueled countless WWE specials. In addition, they've shared the stage with heavy hitters such as Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, Hinder, Chevelle, and many more. Most recently, No Apologies entered the Billboard Top 200 at number 25 in 2010. Trapt is currently in the studio recording their 6th album DNA and have released a song from the album called "Passenger" that embodies the more progressive side of TRAPT's brand of hard rock as an intro to what fans can expect from the album. The band is also gearing for their summer tour dubbed the "Life In Your Own Hands" Tour. The new album DNA is shaping up to be a landmark album for TRAPT. It surpasses anything the band has done before and subsequent singles will show the true power that this band possesses. Get ready for DNA, it's going to change everything.

There is an old saying which claims that great art is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. The truth though is that exceptional creativity is nurtured by a complexly brewed combination of unswerving dedication and God-given talent. It’s a fact no better illustrated than by the history of Vancouver’s hard-rockers ART OF DYING and their talismanic frontman Jonny Hetherington. What ART OF DYING has been able to create is muscular, vivacious hard-rock bursting with lung-shattering choruses and a sincerity that is impossible to fake. Equally at home with a lead-fingered riff or a deft slow-burner, there is an ease of breadth in AOD’s repertoire that would send most of their peers salad-green with envy. Gradually, Hetherington’s ambitions grew beyond his local sidewalk and he began to seek out like-minded collaborators that he could expand his already impressive template with. Drummer Jeff Brown was swiftly recruited and he and Hetherington set about formulating the powerful nucleus of what ART OF DYING would soon become. It was recordings of those initial sessions that would eventually find their way into the hands on DISTURBED’s Dan Donegan - a guitarist with both a fine personal pedigree and a keen ear for new talent. Plucked from relative obscurity, the band introduced guitarist Tavis Stanley and bassist Cale Gontier to their ranks on the eve of the run with DISTURBED - the quartet playing onstage together for the very first time during the soundcheck of the opening show of the tour. Now, with a critically-acclaimed and widely-played major label debut under their belts, ART OF DYING are returning with new long-player RISE UP, their most imperious effort to date and, by the band’s own admission the truest representation of their sound they’ve ever distilled, which was produced by David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin, Of Mice & Men).

September Mourning has just recorded her debut EP. It tells a story in 6 songs, an epic tale of “heartbreak, loss, pain, joy, love, redemption, but most of all, courage…” Produced by Sahaj Ticotin, September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and X-Men's Storm had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as Paramore, Motionless in White, David Bowie, and My Chemical Romance. “For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.” The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Men comics and went on to form Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic form, to accompany, and enhance the musical message. Having toured with Marilyn Manson, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.” Be sure to pick up a copy of their amazing EP titled 'Volume I' featuring the hit single 'Eye Of The Storm.'

Today Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes Alternative Rocker John Taglieri back to the show!
At the turn of the century singer / songwriter John Taglieri released his debut album, ‘Leap of Faith.’ The album title foreshadowed a career that has so far spanned a decade and a half and has taken John to places he’d previously only dreamed about…from topping the Amazon charts to hitting the Billboard charts to gigging around the world all while maintaining a half year residency in tropical Key West, FL.
In 2015 Taglieri is fourteen releases down the road and has crossed genres from hard rock to pop to country rock and with the True Believer Ep he has returned to the style that kicked it all off for him – pure, unadulterated melodic hard rock. Writing on his own as well as with longtime friends John Calendrillo and Ron Ossi, Taglieri has created a hook heavy record that even the most discriminating rock fan will be drawn towards.

Behind everything Heartist do lies one simple goal: to bring real, honest emotion back into heavy music. Writing songs that are equal parts anthemic grandeur, brawny metalcore-infused heaviness, and chorus-driven radio rock nirvana, the quintet wear their influences on their collective sleeve while being far more than the sum of their parts. Formed in 2011, the members of Heartist – vocalist Bryce Beckley, guitarist Tim Koch which were rounded out by guitarist Robby Devito, bassist Evan Ranallo and drummer Matt Marquez - walked away from college educations and secure employment to focus one hundred percent on music. They subsequently spent many months honing their sound, determined to create something that stood out on its own merits, and in no rush to leap back into the scene that failed to excite them. At the same time, they displayed a certain savvy in creating an online buzz that intrigued and lured potential fans without even playing a single show, a tactic that paid off - and then some. “We also got lucky, because our A & R at Roadrunner books bands at our hometown venue, which we didn’t realize, we just asked him to put us on! We really lucked out - we played that one show and got signed.” In 2012 the band dropped their Nothing You Didn’t Deserve EP, subsequently touring with the likes of Architects UK and Enter Shikari, plus a European run supporting label mates Killswitch Engage. While Nothing You Didn’t Deserve was a solid release in its own right, it only hinted at what the band were capable of, and with debut full-length Feeding Fiction they lay it all on the line. The band enlisted Producer David Bendeth (Of Mice & Men, Bring Me The Horizon) to record their full-length album with. Be sure to pick up a copy of their amazing album titled Feeding Fiction featuring the hit singles Skeletons & Ignite! For more information, visit www.heartistband.com
