    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Separations

    in Rock Music

    Standing out from the pack isn’t always easy. However, it’s essential for some, and from the beginning, Separations' desire has been to blaze their own trail. The Atlanta quintet strikes a delicate balance between energetic heaviness and melodic hypnosis on its full-length debut album for Imagen Records, 'Dream Eater,' set to be released October 2, 2015, and produced by James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Hands Like Houses, Dashboard Confessional). Comprised of Will Crafton - vocals, Myles Priest - guitar, Tyler Whitfield - guitar, Brenden Worthington - bass, and Thomas Pinson - drums, it turns out that the band's name has a special meaning to its members. "The name was something we all agreed on instinctually, at the same time, admits Will. "In the literal sense, sometimes you need to separate yourself from the things that keep you grounded and are comfortable in order to succeed. Each Separations performance remains unpredictable, making for an unforgettable experience every time these five musicians hit the stage - which will be on display when the band hits the road this September and October alongside Nothing More, Marmozets, and Turbowolf, as part of the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. “As long as we form a connection with anyone listening to the music, then we’re accomplishing what we set out to do,” concludes Will. The time is coming to unite with Separations. For more information, visit www.twitter.com/separationsband

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Rock Band Red Sun Rising

    in Rock Music

    Rock music should be built to last. Since its genesis, the genre has been all about longevity not a “flavor of the month” or a “flash in the pan.” Whether you go back to the seventies or nineties pillars, the goal was to create something that can be lived with for a lifetime. It still can be that way. Akron, Ohio’s Red Sun Rising—Mike Protich [vocals/guitar], Ryan Williams [guitar], Tyler Valendza [guitar], Ricky Miller [bass/vocals], and Pat Gerasia [drums], proudly carry on that tradition with their full-length debut, Polyester Zeal [Razor & Tie]. “It’s not today’s rock, but it’s a new alternative,” declares singer and guitarist Mike Protich. Through tireless gigging, they built up an impressive local fan base, soon attracting the attention of multiple labels. Razor & Tie rushed to Akron in the Fall of 2014 and signed the band following a sold out hometown show.  The band headed to Los Angeles shortly after to cut Polyester Zeal with celebrated producer Bob Marlette [Black Sabbath, Shinedown, Seether]. They managed to siphon the pure, potent, powerful guitar chemistry, towering vocals, and muscular rhythms into the record’s 11 tracks with all of the “grit” intact. The first single “The Otherside” sees thick clean guitars clash with an unshakable refrain that’s as airy as it is anthemic. However, Polyester Zeal will be, and it firmly establishes Red Sun Rising’s place in rock. “The title sums it up,” concludes Mike. “Zeal is something you strive for, while Polyester is obtainable. The juxtaposition is, ‘What’s your obtainable dream?’ Ours is to tell stories through these songs. Hopefully, it makes you feel something. That’s what rock is supposed to do after all.” For more information, visit www.redsunrisingmusic.com

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Trapt

    in Rock Music

    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.

  • The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Art of Dying

    in Rock Music

    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).

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Heartist

    in Rock Music

    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

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Rock Band Bad Seed Rising

    in Rock Music

    Many musicians experience a defining moment that inspires them to pick up an instrument. For Bad Seed Rising singer and guitarist Francheska Pastor, it happened after watching a television broadcast of Green Day’s American Idiot tour at 12-years-old. Francheska enrolled in Maryland’s Let There Be Rock School in 2011 where she first met Mason Gainer who traded in his Guitar Hero controller for the real thing after discovering a box in the basement hiding his old man’s Guns N’ Roses and Bad Brains CDs. Rounded out by Louey Peraza on bass and drummer Aiden Marceron, the quartet started to tirelessly rehearse outside of the program, honing their chops at an impressive pace. Soon, they were on stage in front of thousands at the M3 Rock Festival or grinding it out at local gigs. Barely freshmen in high school, their ages belied an intense musicianship and immediate knack for a hook. Roadrunner Records caught wind, and they became “the youngest band in history to sign to the label.” In between touring with the likes of Halestorm, Daughtry and 3 Doors Down, the group released their 2014 debut EP, Charm City. That strong introduction paved the way for 2015’s A Place Called Home EP. Produced by Drew Fulk [Motionless In White], the first single “It’s My Time” kick starts with a raucous riff before Francheska’s soaring and soulful voice takes the spotlight before a bombastic gang vocal. The EP closes out with “Disappear,” which highlights the group’s kinetic chemistry as they lock into a hammering and hypnotic groove.
