FUTURE RELEASES HIGH OFF LIFE

(May 15 — Los Angeles, CA)

As promised, the Fire Marshall has returned.

Future’s eighth solo studio album, High Off Life, is now available on all DSPs following Tuesday’s surprise announcement. The album features the four-time platinum Drake collaboration, “Life Is Good,” as well as executive production from Freebandz’ own DJ Esco. And due to the incredible success of “Life Is Good,” the album will be certified Gold by the RIAA upon its release. 

[Stream & download HIGH OFF LIFE]

In addition to Drake, the 21-track album features Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby, Youngboy Never Broke Again, Young Thug, Meek Mill and more. See the full track list below.

On Tuesday, in a surprise turn of events, Future detailed plans to release High Off Life today, as well as the album’s official cover art. The moment quickly swept through social media, captivating a fanbase that had been waiting patiently for a new full-length album from Future for much of the last year.

Thursday, on release eve, Future grabbed hold of the internet’s attention once again, launching an online activation with MSCHF. It challenged users to a digital scavenger hunt meant to unveil a surprise from High Off Life: the Lil Uzi Vert collaboration, “All Bad.” Fans looking to further engulf themselves into the world of Future can do so here: shop.freebandz.com

High Off Life is Future’s first solo LP since The Wizrd, released in January 2019. It sported the hit singles “Crushed Up” and “First Off” with Travis Scott, and represented Future’s fifth consecutive No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart. With High Off Life, the Atlanta-bred superstar seeks his sixth such debut. In addition, High Off Life’s Gold certification makes Future a perfect eight-for-eight with Gold-certified studio albums—three of which have also been certified Platinum.

Since the beginning of 2020, Future has been moving with a renewed vigor. Just 10 days into the year he released “Life Is Good” with Drake, yet another championship ring for the What A Time To Be Alive duo, which notched its highest Billboard Hot 100 placement (No. 2) to date with the track. 

Future followed “Life Is Good” by delivering a handful of his critically-acclaimed mixtapes (Beast Mode56 NightsPurple Reign) to DSPs in April, an outcome his devoted fanbase has long clamored for. It’s allowed him to reflect on a legendary run from the decade prior while setting his sights on the one ahead.

Imitation may be the best form of flattery. But there’s only one Future. High Off Life is out now.

ADÉ RELEASES NEW EP wyd after? + MUSIC VIDEO FOR “FEEL SOME WAY” FEATURING WALE OUT NOW!

(May 15, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Off the heels of buzzing singles and spitfire freestyles that have earned him attention from names like Pusha T and more, DMV-area mainstay ADÉ unleashes his brand new EP, wyd after?, out today. Get it HERE via Epic Records/HighRes Global.

Along with the EP, today he shares the official video for single “Feel Some Way” featuring Wale, which premiered earlier this morning via ComplexWatch the video HERE and check out the Complex article HERE.

Dreamy keys give way to a thick beat and a steady bass groove as ADÉ and Wale deliver a rap master class between a hypnotic high-register hook and a catchy chant. Together, they shoot down jealousy one bar at a time. In the visual, the two D.C. titans stand back-to-back surrounded by a posse of onlookers and models as they ponder, “Can’t understand why you feel some way.

Says ADÉ, “the song fits perfectly into the picture I’m painting with the wyd after? project. I do most of my ‘living’ at night. Being a recording artist, I’m always at shows, parties, events, etc. which, more often than not, happen in the night time. So, that’s when most of the interesting shit happens in my life. I talk about what it’s been like navigating through the good times, the tough times and my relationships while living the nightlife. The question ‘what you doing after?’ is the crossroads I usually come to most nights. After being asked ‘wyd after?’ I can either end my night, or find more trouble to get into.”

ADÉ paved the way for wyd after? with a string of scorching singles and music videos. Most recently, he released the single“Replacements,” along with an official music videowhich HotNewHipHop dubbed it a “banger” and proclaimed that ADÉ “is maintaining his era of reinvention...” He announced the EP earlier this Spring with the Trevor Jackson-featuring “Don’t Cry” [feat. Trevor Jackson], along which also arrived with an official visual. Elsewhere on the EP, he slides from laidback rhymes into resounding melodies on “Out The Way” before flexing fiery rhymes and one more airtight chorus on the finale “GGBB.” 

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Lighting up social media with a recent series of freestyles, he caught the attention of none other than Pusha TKing Push wrote, “Oh y’all still acting like y’all don’t hear ADÉ? It’s cool, I’ll keep listening…” after hearing ADÉ’s most recent freestyleThe post has tallied 117K views and counting on Instagram. In April, ADÉ posted a freestyle he filmed in his car, which received attention from DJ Akademiks and had fans asking for more. 

So… wyd after?

ABOUT ADÉ

wyd after? represents a natural progression for ADÉ. After establishing himself under the name Phil Adé, the DMV talent served up a series of mixtapes and singles and shined on collaborations alongside heavy-hitters such as LogicMac MillerRaekwon, and Bootsy Collins. Starting in 2013, he dove into honing his craft, writing in the studio with a variety of artists, perfecting his own sound as well as his live performance. He ultimately developed his voice immensely. During this time, he made extensive contributions as a writer and featured act to Wale’s #1 opus The Album About Nothing [2015] and Shine [2017], in addition to working with Raheem DeVaughnAnthony Hamilton, Chris Brown, Eric Bellinger, Mýa, Trevor Jackson, Serayah, 9th Wonder and Bink, while gracing the stage on the sold out SHIN3 Tour. In 2017, he shared the solo single “No Fear” [feat. Tate Kobang and Saba Abraha], which soundtracked WWE NXT and clocked half-a-million streams. Upon the latter’s arrival, Billboard described him as “ready to seize his opportunity at rap stardom. However, he changed everything for 2019. He opted to go by simply ADÉ, signed to Epic Records, and cooked up his first EP of the label, ALWAYS SOMETHING, showcasing a completely new side of him while continuing to carve out a place among hip-hop’s modern elite.

The tastemaker-approved EP boasted “SOMETHING NEW” [feat. Lil Baby], “SOMETHING FROM NOTHING” [feat. Rich The Kid], and “SOMETHING REAL” [feat. Wale Goldlink], and more. Meanwhile, it attracted unanimous acclaim. Billboard applauded “the six-track EP is a reintroduction to the hip-hop stalwart’s talents on the mic, backed by his refurbished sound,” HipHopDX claimed, “the switch brings the refreshing energy to validate his change in direction.” In addition to looks from HYPEBEAST and more, Respect Magazine summed him up best as “an amazingly versatile talent.

NEW ALBUM COMING SOON

A.CHAL RELEASES NEW SINGLE “HOLLYWOOD LOVE” FEATURING GUNNA

(May 6, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Continuing to heat up 2020, rapidly rising genre-disrupting singer, songwriter and producerA.CHAL unveils his new single entitled “Hollywood Love” [feat. Gunna] today. Get it HERE via Epic Records/Gazi World.

Once again, the Peruvian-born, New York-raised artist artfully integrates laidback flows, hazy hooks, and soulful drip into a spacey soundscape thread together by dreamy guitar, skittering beats, and nimble cadences. Meanwhile, multiplatinum Atlanta titan Gunnajoins him to light up the beat with a signature sputtering verse. Ruminating on disillusioned sentiments on love, fame, and Hollywood, the anthem fuses cultures and styles as it immediately captivates. Additionally, the song played earlier today during an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 on Apple Music

Just last month, A.CHAL returned with “Pink Dust,” the first taste of the new project. Upon arrival, Spotify plugged the track on New Music Friday, while Apple Music touted it on New Music Daily in 14 territories in addition to R&B Hot TracksMood., and more. The FADER praised the song and its official video, proclaiming “sitting somewhere between Post Malone and Blonde, it’s a thrilling look into A.CHAL’s new album.

All signs point to a breakthrough for A.CHAL as he releases his anxiously awaited new album soon. The project looks back as it leaps forward, fusing together psychedelic soundscapes, R&B, Reggaeton, and Rock into a future-facing odyssey guided by A.CHAL, who co-produced much of the album alongside Noel Zancanella (other production collaborations include names like Tainy). The body of work takes listeners on a roller coaster ride through a self-awakening, while exploring the concept of love and authenticity as being the key in navigating a path towards finding peace.

Get ready for more, but fall into “Hollywood Love” with A. CHAL now.

ABOUT A.CHAL

Born in Lima, Peru as a decent of Quechua and raised between the cities of Trujillo, Peru and Queens, New York, A.CHAL developed a unique sound. His music is punctuated with a fusion of indigenous Peruvian sounds, modern trap-soul sonics, and the sounds he consumed growing up on the east coast of the U.S., where he admired icons such as DMX, the DiplomatsLil Wayne, and Pharrell. He defies standard R&B tropes with a sleek voice, an eclectic sonic palette, and his ingenuity in speaking about emotions at their rawest form. His unique brand of music has caught the attention of some of the culture’s most notable purveyors, from Apple Music’s global creative director Zane Lowe, Berluti’s creative director Kris Van Assche, perfumer and founder of ByredoBen Gorham, and global Latin artists like J. Balvin and ROSALÍA

Eventually, A.CHAL moved coasts, setting in Los Angeles where he put together what would become his first project, Ballroom Riots. Subsequently securing a publishing deal with Sony/ATV, he landed his first major songwriting and production placement withJennifer Lopez. In 2016, he released his first full length project Welcome to Gazi independently, which garnered him attention from the likes of Drake’s OVOVirgil Abloh and A$AP Rocky. By 2017, he earned his first RIAA Gold-certification for his single “Love n Hennessey” (a subsequent remix features 2 Chainz and Nicky Jam), taken from his acclaimed EP, ON GAZ. Substantial touring and critical acclaim followed, which led him into a partnership with Epic Records, which released his EXOTIGAZ EP at the end of 2018. Featuring his fasting growing single to-date, “000000,” and his first full Latin song, “La Dueña,” the project continued his sonic evolution. Along the way, A.CHAL received acclaim across the board, with outlets like Tidal naming him a “rising artist” and Forbesrecently calling him “the emerging Latinx artist you won’t be able to ignore this year.” Additionally, he received praise from the likes of Billboard, Paper, Noisey, The FADER, Flaunt, i-D, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, Remezcla and more. 

These earlier projects and accolades showcased the aspirations of making it to where he is now; upcoming first major label album explores the different emotional states throughout an artist’s transition in notoriety and is motivated by the sacrifices that come with success. Without ever being boxed into any specific category, his new music displays the evolution of his artistic development, one that will continue to evolve and connect with fans across all borders.

About Baby Plug:

Baby Plug always kept his eyes and ears opened. By listening to and watching those around him, the Atlanta-based MC absorbed the necessary skills to survive in the trap and, ultimately, tell his story through rap. Rising up from high school years split between the streets and County to acclaim from The FaderLyrical Lemonade, and more, the 19-year-old filtered these truths into his RECORDS/Epic Records debut EP, Topic

Kicked out of middle school and eventually dropping out of ninth grade, he turned to the streets until winding up in Dekalb County for eight months. Upon returning home, he made a life-changing decision to rap. He uploaded a freestyle of Blocboy JB’s “Rover 2.0” and incited a buzz. He went on to drop the Its Baby Plug mixtape followed by Lemme Pop My Shxt. The 2019 single “Hibachi” [feat. YP] accelerated his momentum as The FADER named it one of the “The 10 Best New Rap Songs Right Now. On its heels, “No Vest” popped off as he also teamed up with Yung Icey for Icey Baby. Garnering acclaim, Lyrical Lemonade wrote, “It is obvious from just one listen that Baby Plug is one of those rare talents who was put on this Earth to rap.” Along the way, he also found an early champion and mentor in multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar 21 Savage. Signing to RECORDS and Epic, Baby Plug ignites his next phase with Topic preceded by the single “No Fifties.”

Smooth guitar and a slick beat practically freeze under French’s icy bars. He bodies the production before delivering the unshakable hook, “Man, that bitch cold.” Meanwhile, Tory adds a high-register call-and-response to the chorus after serving up his own iced-out verse. This marks the first collaboration between these two titans. Last month, following their epic Quarantine Radio hit song battle, French and Tory decided to give their fans exactly what they craved. The hit-for-hit song battle notably attracted 300,000-plus viewers and smashed an Instagram Live record, according to Complex.

French Montana remains the iciest of them all on “Cold. Get ready for more heat soon!

About French Montana

Some artists blur genres, but French Montana blurs borders. His inimitable fusion of classic East Coast rhymes, wavy pop swagger, and international ambition elevated him to the forefront of the game on a global scale. 2017 saw him ascend to superstar status with the blockbuster smash “Unforgettable” [feat. Swae Lee], which cemented him in the “Billion Club” for streaming and earned an eight-times platinum certification from the RIAA. Meanwhile, his sophomore effort, JUNGLE RULES, went gold and dominated the charts. At the same time, he has left an indelible mark on communities around the globe. In addition to becoming the very first rap ambassador of Global Citizen, he staunchly supported humanitarian efforts, spanning DACA, the viral Mama Hope #UNFORGETTABLE Dance Challenge, which raised over $500,000-plus, and his Pan-African health and education movement into Morocco with Care Morocco. 2018 also saw him become a U.S. Citizen after emigrating to the South Bronx from Morocco at just 13-years-old.

If anyone can not only change music, but the world at large, it’s French Montana.

On the track, a buoyant beat bounces along with the MC’s catchy and clever rhymes. He locks into a fiery flow before delivering the chantable refrain, “Call me young Keanu, I keep replacements” and adding, “I just took what’s mines, I never chased it. The accompanying music video reflects this lighthearted vibe. Passing the “After Hours” club sign, ADÈ slides into a convenience store where the after party pops twenty-four-seven. Donning shades, he cruises up and down the aisles, captivating partygoers and serving up one bold bar after another like only he can.

The song drops hot on the heels of previous track “DON’T CRY” [feat. Trevor Jackson], which sets the stage for the release of his forthcoming EP, wyd after?, arriving Friday, May 15. An acronym for “What you doing after?”, the project threads together a nocturnal narrative that plays out like a movie. The EP unfolds with a story of the after-after party, nostalgic for a time when these experiences could happen, IRL.

“I live a lot of my life at nighttime,” ADÉ explains. “All of the most interesting things happen at night. When I was recording this past year, I realized the music told these stories. Usually when we’re leaving an event, I come to a crossroads. Somebody texts me ‘wyd after?’, and that determined how my night will go. Nightlife is a big part of the culture in the DC area where I’m from, so this came naturally.”

Watch it HERE!

Listen to his critically acclaimed debut EP Take Time HERE via Epic Records.

The video, directed by TKTK, is an intimately minimal feature, as GIVEON ambles about a parked car as he and his guitarist serenade an empty parking lot due to COVID-19 quarantine closures. The parking lot, which is beside Long Beach Polytechnic High School, wasn’t selected randomly.

“Anyone from Long Beach recognizes that Poly is responsible for many NBA players, NFL players and Entertainers; Most notable being Snoop Dogg,”says GIVEON about the historical centerpiece of his new video. “For that reason I take pride in being an alumni of LBP. I’m excited to be a part of moving the culture forward in the city and shining light on what LB is. It’s honestly iconic.”

Furthermore, GIVEON was forced to execute his art in the midst of COVID-19 complications. 

“It was interesting filming during these times,” he recalls. “Trying to navigate while wearing masks and staying 6 feet away was tricky. We were fortunate enough to make it work.”

After stealing the show on Drake’s surprise release “Chicago Freestyle” earlier this year, curiosity about the somber brilliance of GIVEON rose quickly. He responded earnestly with the eight-track Take Time EP, which includes “The Beach,” and now has the R&B scene brimming with enthusiasm over his potential.

As the critics at Teen Vogue put it, “Mellow music is always in high demand and GIVEON is keenly aware of this. The Long Beach-bred singer releases his debut EP Take Time today with the intention of showcasing his calming, baritone vocals but also storytelling.”

ABOUT GIVEON

GIVEON infuses Rat Pack-style classiness into modern R&B. Developing his own baritone delivery, he caught the attention of another Long Beach local and multiplatinum singer and songwriter AUGUST 08 [DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber] who served as an initial mentor. In 2018, GIVEON independently made his debut with “Garden Kisses” (623K Spotify streams to date) and “Fields, clocking two million streams so far. At the same time, he earned acclaim by everyone from Flaunt to HotNewHipHop. A year later, he joined forces with producer Sevn Thomas [Drake, Rihanna, Travis Scott] and further honed a signature style of his own. In 2019, he also performed “Giveon Unplugged” to a packed crowd at Soho House in addition to leading a songwriting camp sponsored by Remy Martin and Asics alongside top producers and songwriters such as boi-1daJahaan SweetSevn ThomasWondaGurlCharlie Handsome, and more. Snoh Aalegra personally invited him on her headline tour. Now, he uncovers his debut EP for Epic RecordsTake Time.

KIITA RELEASES NEW BAYARD THE BLOODHOUND EP

(April 24, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – On the heels of glowing acclaim from The FADERClash, and more, buzzing 17-year-old Columbus, OH alternative pop songstress KIITA unleashes her new EP, BAYARD THE BLOODHOUND, today. 

Get it HERE via Young Forever/Epic Records.

The opener and first single “Thinking About You” illuminates the depth of her dynamic style with its fusion of ethereal guitars, thick drums, and glitchy production. Plunging into this lovestruck dreamscape, she assures, “If you want to break down right here, I don’t mind. It’s alright,” before promising, “You’ll be thinking about what I’m thinking about you now. Elsewhere, her delivery barely inches above a whisper on the cavernous “Love Lakes” as she asks, “Lost in a fairytale, but where the fuck did you go?”  The three-track trip culminates on the majestically magical and manic“Straight 2 Hell” where she wishes an ex would “talk to the devil and say you’re sorry for the things you did.

She caught the attention of Young Forever Founder Chris Anokute who immediately signed her in 2019. Dropping the Let’s Commit A Robbery EP and ANTHEMOESSA EP, the artist attracted widespread acclaim right out of the gate. Drumming up early buzz, The FADER urged, “Listen to KIITA’s perfect pop now so you can feel smart when she’s famous,and CLASH wrote, KIITA is still only 16 years old yet she tackles her art with the honesty of songwriters twice her age. The Interns summed it up best, “She has the chops to go big.” 

Named after a character in Alice in Wonderland, her 2020 EP BAYARD THE BLOODHOUND welcomes everyone into her world now.

About Lonr.:

Emerging from under a quiet shroud of mystery, Lonr. arrives as a singular and cinematic talent whose vital and vibrant vision piques fascination as it blurs the lines between soul, soundtracks, and simmering Hip-Hop. After being uprooted from Los Angeles as a child and moving to Cape Cod, MA, Lonr. grew up feeling like the odd one out. Upon installing music software in high school, heentrenched himself in beat-making, creating his own universe to exist in. Inspired by the likes of PharrellOutKast, and Tyler, The Creator as well as film scores for Star Wars, Interstellar, and The Pursuit of Happyness, he developed his production chops and songwriting talents through countless hours by himself in front of the computer. On his way up, he became a sought-after songwriter, crafting hits and building worlds alongside other artists. By 2019, he found himself up for multiple GRAMMY® Awards for contributions to H.E.R.’s discography, winning two. At the same time, he began to quietly assemble what would become Lonr.’s own project, Land of Nothing Real.

“I always zone out and go into my own little world,” Lonr. explains. “That’s the Land of Nothing Real. If you don’t like where you are, you can escape into another realm. This project is really about love, longing, and desire. Those topics are always on people’s minds. I’m examining them with melodic and dreamy songs.”

Capturing palpable and relatable emotion, Lonr. might just make you feel a little less alone: “I want listeners to feel like this is something new,” he says. “Most of all, I hope they resonate with me and feel like they’re being heard and not so alone in this world.”

Land of Nothing Real Track List:
1. Time
2. A.M.
3. Safe Zone
4. Lit featuring 24kGoldn
5. Unruly
6. Make the Most featuring H.E.R.

I had an amazing team that spent countless hours hand gluing Swarovski crystals to my body. We put a lot of time & energy into the details, and it shines through.  Robin Eisenberg did a phenomenal job animating the second half of the video to bring the storyline full circle”

Meanwhile, her recent video for “CALI LOVE” clocked 100K-plus views as Okayplayer crowned it a “standout. Watch it HERE.

AJ MITCHELL UNVEILS OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR “DOWN IN FLAMES”

(Los Angeles, CA – April 23, 2020) – Today, pop phenom AJ Mitchell has unveiled the official music video for his track “Down In Flames” (Epic Records). Directed by Kyle Goldberg (Future, Ella Mai) and filmed amidst the backdrop of a remote airfield in Kansas City, the song and video offer an emotional and timely spotlight on the irreplaceable nature of the world around us. Watch it now here.

“The idea behind Down In Flames was sparked when two of my best friends got in a really bad argument and I saw how the situation could’ve ended better if they just communicated how they actually felt,” says AJ.  “I need to work on this too, it’s maybe something we all have to work on sometimes. So many problems can be solved if we just stop hiding how we really feel.”

Last month, AJ released his new single “Spring Break” featuring Rich The Kid along with a vivid accompanying music video directed by Psycho Films’Joe Weil (Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Ferg, Electric Guest). With his forthcoming debut album on the horizon, AJ continues to prove himself as one of 2020’s breakout artists. Across the past year, the singer-songwriter has garnered acclaim from the likes of Billboard, DuJour, Idolator and more, and has received recognition as both an MTV PUSH artist and a 2019 Vevo LIFT artist. Impressively, he’s already ranked among the Top 500 artists on Spotify and is averaging over 8 million monthly listeners.

AJ released his Slow Dance EP via Epic Records in August 2019, which features the smash-hit title track featuring Ava Max. Following performances at the 2019 VMAs as well as on The Today Show and Live With Kelly and Ryan, the song maintained a position on the Top 40 Pop Radio charts for months. To close out the year, AJ continued to showcase his range with a steady stream of diverse tracks including the smooth, stripped back “Like Strangers Do,” the energetic pop anthem “Say It Again”, and the R&B-tinged “Unstoppable”.

First New Album in Five Years, Lamb Of God, Due Out June 19 on Epic Records

LAMB OF GOD Debut “New Colossal Hate” Track and Lyric Video

(April 23, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – LAMB OF GOD have unleashed another track from their forthcoming self-titled album (now due June 19 via Epic Records) in the form of “New Colossal Hate” – a song which finds the band at the height of their formidable powers – unrelenting, unstoppable, and as always, setting the standard for aggressive modern music.

Where now-classic LAMB OF GOD slabs As the Palaces Burn (2003) and Ashes of the Wake (2004) zoomed in on specific issues,  Lamb Of God (2020) takes a broader view, calling attention to and laying out an argument against intolerance, apathy and injustice, both in the United States and abroad.  

The album tackles a broad range of issues, including the opioid crisis (“On the Hook”), school shootings (“Reality Bath”), and vocalist/lyricist D. Randall Blythe’s time protesting alongside native peoples at Standing Rock (“Routes”). 

“New Colossal Hate,” which hits all digital and streaming services as a single and lyric video today – watch now at www.lamb-of-god.com – digs into the exploitative rhetoric and persistent “othering” of marginalized people that continues to divide.

Guitarist Willie Adler speaking on the composition of the song:

“’New Colossal Hate’ came out of our very first writing session in Maine. Mark, our producer Josh Wilbur and I were at a super cool studio in South Windham called Halo. An absolutely beautiful spot run by some of the best people I’ve ever met. I’m pretty sure ‘New Colossal Hate’ grew from a few different demos I had. You know, like parts of car. However, as it started to take shape, it quickly became my favorite song on the record. Please enjoy this banger of a tune. It holds a very special place in my heart.”

“New Colossal Hate” follows the official music video for “Memento Mori,” which has been viewed more than 3.5 million times since its late March debut. Executed from a narrative treatment written by Blythe, “Memento Mori” features a blistering performance from guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, drummer Art Cruz, and Blythe, juxtaposed against a grim storyline costarring Sinisteria, a dark performance troupe led by fellow Richmond, Virginia, natives Sabrina Elliotte and Gwooki. 

Audiences got a taste of the first new LAMB OF GOD music in nearly five years with “Checkmate” back in February. All three songs will appear on Lamb Of God, the follow-up to VII: Sturm und Drang (2015). The album was once again produced by collaborator Josh Wilbur (GojiraKornMegadethTrivium), fueled by a mountain of riffs and looming rhythmic shadows. It’s also the band’s first record with Cruz, who sat behind the kit withLAMB OF GOD in 2018 and became an official member the following year. 

LAMB OF GOD propelled heavy metal into the new millennium two decades ago with the prophetically titled New American Gospel. They followed with 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which made the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake (2004) was the first LAMB OF GOD album to be certified gold by the RIAA, followed by Sacrament (2006), which debuted in Billboard’s Top 10. Wrath (2009) earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock, Rock, and Tastemaker charts and was No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Those No. 1 positions were repeated with Resolution (2012). VII: Sturm und Drang (2015) debuted at No. 3 in North America and in the Top 5 in several countries. The single “512” from VII: Sturm und Drang received a Grammy nod for the “Best Metal Performance,” making it LAMB OF GOD’s fifth Grammy nomination.

The new album features guest appearances from Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) and Chuck Billy (Testament). Blythe sounds more driven and insightful than ever on Lamb Of God, offering up the angriest and most comprehensive diatribes, addressing modern life in the current landscape, of his storied career thus far.

Lamb Of God pre-orders are available at http://lambofgod.lnk.to/LOG.

RENCE RELEASES NEW SONG “TEARS IN DECEMBER”

Rence is one of the most promising vocalists in the music industry right now.” – Lyrical Lemonade

(April 16, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, genre-defying singer, songwriter and producer Rence unleashes his latest single “Tears In December.”  Get it HERE via Epic Records.

The track begins with creaky guitar and echoey beats as his breathy vocals exhale confessional verses. The energy organically blooms into the quotable refrain—“Sick of the sound of my heart hitting the ground”—before the vibe turns on a dime into a lonely late night dancefloor singalong. The song takes inspiration from Rence’s own journey and come-up, having made the decision in December of 2019 to move from New York to Los Angeles. 

“Tears in December chronicles my personal life following some major changes I underwent recently, including moving back out west from New York,” says Rence. “I thought I needed to leave my old home (and person) behind to start fresh in an exciting new city, but once I got here I realized pretty quickly that I was wrong. This song is that realization. I sing the lyrics to someone very special to me that I made the mistake of leaving, but beyond that interpersonal relationship, I wrote the lyrics to remind myself not to be too quick to move on and forget the past. That past is precisely what got me to where I am and what will help me continue to move forward. In the lyrics I say ‘sick of the sound of my heart hitting the ground,’ but a big piece of that sentiment is the realization that I was the one breaking my own heart. That heartbreak found its way into my songs for a while – especially because I’m always trying to be honest and authentic in what I create – and I was just sick of hearing it.”

Rence continues to unveil new music and exciting visuals at a steady pace. Earlier this week, he dropped a tripped-out official video for “Patience,” taken from his Fall 2019 EP.  It followed on the heels an acoustic video for the song where he performed on his front porch accompanied by a solo keyboardist. The latter illuminated his raw, unfiltered talent with a showstopping rendition of the tune. Earlier this month, he released an Animal Crossing video for his most recent single, “Type 2.” It cuts together footage of his Animal Crossing: New Horizons avatar to bounce of the track, bringing the song to life Nintendo Switch-style. Meanwhile, “Type 2” nears half-a-million streams in Spotify in addition to earning critical applause.Lyrical Lemonade claimed, ‘Type 2’ is the perfect example of why Rence is one of the most promising vocalists in the music industry right now.

Capitalizing on the momentum sparked by the release of his Fall 2019 EP, Rence has received much acclaim and accolades. Pigeons & Planes named him among  “Best New Artists” while his breakout single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] recently surpassed 6 million global streams. Having recently wrapped a North American tour with Christian FrenchRence has gone on to received looks and acclaim from the likes of Nylon, i-D, The FADER, BillboardPaper and more.

Cry “Tears In December” with Rence now.

About Rence:

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. He introduced himself on the breakthrough independent project, Pink. The lead single “Baby Blue” racking up nearly 10 million streams. Peers such as Chelsea Cutler and FLETCHER lent support as critical acclaim came from Hilly DillyLyrical LemonadeOnes To WatchElevator Magazine, and more. Tastemaker Zane Lowe handpicked “Ways To Go” as his “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

DEBUT PROJECT SEASON 1 DUE SOON

RISING NEW YORK CITY-BASED ALT-POP SINGER-SONGWRITER STALKING GIA RELEASES NEW ANTHEMIC SINGLE “THE KINDEST THING”

(April 10, 2020 – New York, NY) – Acclaimed New York-based alt-pop songstress Stalking Gia releases her new single, “The Kindest Thing” today. Get it HERE via Not Fit For Society/Epic Records.

Additionally, the rising artist shares the home-made visual for the track as the first episode in a series of “Quarantine Diaries” that will be released over the coming days. View it HERE.

The track extends an invitation into her world and heralds the arrival of her upcoming debut project, SEASON 1—coming soon. Evocative of the artist’s seamless blend of alternative, pop, and electronic stylings, the breakup anthem ebbs and flows between cinematic strings, glitchy beats, and distorted guitars. Meanwhile, her vocals rise from a delicate coo into a deliberate, glorious scream as she kisses an ex off with the declaration, “The kindest thing you ever did was—leave.” 

Says Stalking Gia, the song ”is a celebration of freedom. The switch from being codependent to independent. Not feeling bitter, but in fact better.”

About Stalking Gia:

A cosmopolitan alternative pop femme fatale and the ultimate object of digital obsession, Stalking Gia documents the nocturnal movements of a culture anesthetized by following one another in an endless digital loop, high-fashion fixation, and the thrill of collapse. Generating 20 million-plus streams independently and receiving acclaim from the likes of BillboardEarmilk, Galore, Marie Claire, Noisey, NylonThe Wild Honey Pie and more, the New York songstress materializes like a specter in the space between online fantasy and Manhattan’s real-life nocturnal glow.

Stalking Gia first came to life via the 2016 single “Second Nature. Achieving viral success, the track organically tallied near 12 million Spotify streams and incited a growing buzz. blackbear integrated a sample of “Second Nature” into the track “Wish U the Best” from his gold-certified chart-topping 2017 album, Digital Druglord, and invited her on tour. Meanwhile, she maintained her momentum with the single “Siren” and continued her collaborative relationship with blackbear for her single “Miracles, which landed on New Music Friday playlists worldwide. Her versatile songwriting talents extend beyond her solo material, having written and sang the hook on Raekwon’s 2017 single “Purple Brick Road” featuring G-Eazy. Along the way, she assembled what would become SEASON 1 with producers J&R. Taking an active role, she oversaw arrangement and played piano and guitar on the productions. The project distills snapshots of experiences, capturing a period in time and framing it between online fantasy and stark reality.

In the end, Gia offers listeners a different sort of escape both online and I.R.L.

“I want you to get lost in my music,” she says. “I’d love to give everyone a euphoric experience. Shut off the outside world and dive into my fantasy. Maybe you can even feel inspired and magical. I do.”

Praise For Stalking Gia:

“…the track [“The Kindest  Thing”] is a wild celebration of irresistible melodies, marrying soft vocals which weave in assertions of “leave, the kindest thing you did was”. The breakup song relishes in being positive and leaving dead weight relationships – how could we not stan.” – Wonderland

“…her songs are laced with a passion that thrives on individuality and quirkiness.” – Nylon

“…the singer-songwriter’s rendition of emotion makes sharing your innermost feelings seem not so bad, and maybe even kinda worth it.” – Galore

“This is a very late-night kind of pop. It’s intimate, close… sophisticated and sparse.”  Noisey

“…anelectro-pop wunderkind.” – Earmilk

“Hypnotic” – Marie Claire

“RITMO (BAD BOYS FOR LIFE)” CERTIFIED PLATINUM & GOLD AS AN INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON

BLACK EYED PEAS DROP NEW SINGLE & VIDEO “MAMACITA” FEATURING OZUNA & J.REY SOUL

(April 10, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – After launching a historic comeback with one of their biggest international anthems ever last year, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)”, Black Eyed Peas maintain this unprecedented momentum with a new single entitled “MAMACITA” [feat. Ozuna J.Rey Soul] today.

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Making another global power move, the six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, genre-bending pioneers link up with Puerto Rican reggaeton and Latin trap superstar Ozuna—who stands out as a four-time Guinness World Record® holder and one of the best-selling Latin artists of all-time—for “MAMACITA.” This week his single “Fantasía,” from his latest album NIBIRU, reached number 1 on both theBillboard Latin Airplay and Latin Rhythm Airplay charts. Once again, Black Eyed Peas seamlessly fuse hip-hop, pop, club, and Latin with a lyrical crossfire, chantable choruses, and Ozuna’s fiery performance.  

Plus, “MAMACITA” marks the Black Eyed Peas second single at their new label and the reveal of J.Rey Soul as a featured artist with Black Eyed Peas. Similar to band mate Apl.de.ap, J.Rey Soul, a Black-Filipina, was also born and raised in the Philippines.  

BEP fans know J.Rey Soul and her contributions to 2018’s Masters of the Sun Vol.1 and featured guest vocalist appearances during the Black Eyed Peas 2019 European, Latin America and Pacific tour legs. Now, she shines on “MAMACITA” with sizzling style.  

Watch them shine in the music video directed by Julien Christian Lutz aka Director X. In the clip, Black Eyed Peas and Ozuna are exclusively wearing all Gucci. Outfitted by the legendary brand and dripping in style, it’s yet another massive collaboration. View it HERE.

MAMACITA” arrives on the heels of Black Eyed Peas’ worldwide smash “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” [feat. J Balvin]. Crossing 1 billion total streams in less than six months, the track eclipsed 432.7 million Spotify streams to date, making it the group’s “most-listened to song on a platform” and even besting the counts of perennial hits “I Gotta Feeling” and “Where Is The Love?” Meanwhile, the “RITMO” music video has racked up more than 600 million YouTube views and counting. 

It blew up around the world as well. Among multiple certifications, it went quadruple-platinum in Mexico, triple-platinum in Spain, platinum in Italy, Switzerland, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Costa Rica, and gold in Canada, France twice, Sweden, Turkey, Central America, and the Caribbean.

Rolling Stone described “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” as “flashy, colorful,” and Billboard praised its “major 90s vibes with its neon lights and colorful Miami scenery and features action-packed scenes ofBad Boys for Life starring Will Smith.” “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” continues to dominate multiple charts. As reported by Forbes, it claimed No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs for a second straight week, which also marks its overall ninth non-consecutive week at the top.

Get ready for Black Eyed Peas to make history once more…

INDIA SHAWN RELEASES NEW SINGLES “CALI LOVE” & “NOT TOO DEEP” FEATURING 6LACK

(April 10, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, acclaimed Los Angeles singer, songwriter, and artist India Shawn unveils a pair of brand-new singles entitled “Cali Love” and “Not Too Deep” [feat. 6lack]. These mark her official debut for Epic Records

Get ‘Not Too Deep’ [feat. 6lack] HERE and ‘Cali Love’ HERE

She also shared the music video for “Cali Love” via Okayplayer. Watch it HERE. In the visual, she dons a gorgeous and glimmering cannabis crown with each pre-roll covered in Swarovski crystals as well as other stunning amulets and body jewels. Bathed in heavenly light and through a haze of smoke, she croons sultry verses in front of a rose wall before posing a ponderous and passionate question, “Will you find true love in L.A.?” Over production from D’Mile[RihannaJustin Bieber], her voice takes flight. 

On the other end of the spectrum, “Not Too Deep” [feat. 6lack] pairs her breathy vocals with delicate piano and off-kilter hi-hats. Both songs illuminate her psychedelically spun projection of neo-R&B.  They also pave the way for her new EP–coming very soon.

About the songs, she commented, “As a SoCal native, I couldn’t see myself calling anywhere else home; I just haven’t had great luck dating here. In ‘Cali Love,I’m asking, ‘Where do you find a true love in L.A.?’ When I wrote ‘Not Too Deep, my head and heart were in the admiration, appreciation, and simplicity of newfound love. It reminds of one of my favorite Osho quotes, ‘If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. If you pick it up, it dies, and it ceases to be what you love. So, if you love a flower, let it be’.”

Beyond a fruitful songwriting career with credits for the likes of Chris BrownDiddy-Dirty Money, and more, she has stirred up palpable buzz as a solo artist. In addition to a Solange co-sign, HYPEBEAST has called her voice “angelic,” while Okayplayer has praised her “sleek vocal treatments.” Rolling Out promised, “On the radar artist India Shawn is a singer-songwriter with an ethereal voice.”

Fall in “Cali Love” with India Shawn now.

ABOUT INDIA SHAWN

Los Angeles songstress India Shawn champions self-love and divine femininity within her soulfully sultry, psychedelia-infused R&B. Breaking into the business during 2010, she penned songs for everyone from Chris Brown and Diddy-Dirty Money to El DebargeKeri Hilson, and Monica as part of the writing collective Full Circle. Following her 2012 debut Origin, she made waves and turned heads as an artist with “I’m Alive”—which Solange Knowles touted on the 2013 Saint Heron compilation. Opening for Raury and Ryan Leslie, she lent her voice to Ludacris’s chart-topping Ludaversal and served up the Outer Limits EP during 2015.

DEBUT EP LAND OF NOTHING REAL ARRIVES APRIL 24

LONR. CROSSES 32 MILLION STREAMS OFF DEBUT SINGLES “A.M.” AND “SAFE ZONE” AFTER WRAPPING TOUR WITH YBN CORDAE

GRAMMY® AWARD-WINNING ARTIST LONR RELEASES NEW SINGLE “MAKE THE MOST” FEATURING H.E.R.

(April 3, 2020 – New York, NY) – Today, rising genre-bursting multi-hyphenate artist Lonr. uncovers his new single “Make the Most” featuring H.E.R. Get it HERE via Epic Records.

The California-born and Cape Cod, MA-raised GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, rapper, songwriter and producer teamed up with The FADER to exclusively premiere the official music video earlier this morning. Watch the video HERE.

In between a tight groove and fluttering guitar, he delivers vulnerable verses before carrying an eternal pledge on the hook, “I wanna grow old with you, make the most with you, that’s the goal. H.E.R. offers a sweetly soulful counterpoint punctuated by delicate emotion. Meanwhile, the visual depicts tender scenes of romance betweenLonr. and a female companion.  However, after of moments of bliss, the story takes a very intense and topical turn…

He tells The FADER that “the idea behind ‘Make the Most’ was simply that we only have one life to live, so with whatever or whoever it is that you love, make sure you make it known…make sure you chase it, because tomorrow isn’t promised.”

Lonr. introduced himself at the end of 2019 with his first-ever single, “A.M. Inspiring the “A.M.” Challenge, the single ignited a flurry of activity on Tik Tok, with over 2 million user-generated videos in a short time span. This phenomenon translated to Spotify where the song soared to the Top 5 of the US Viral Chart and top 10 of the Global Viral Chart, alongside looks on the Most Necessary and Pop Rising playlists. Together with follow-up trackSafe Zone,” Lonr.s music has since tallied over 32 million total streams and counting. Garnering critical praise early on, XXL called him “multifaceted” while Elevator Magazine called him a “star in the making.”HotNewHipHop mirrored those sentiments, calling him a “rising star” and exclaiming that “Safe Zone” “builds on the momentum [of ‘A.M.’].”  Rap-Up may have put it best: “Now music’s secret weapon is stepping into his own.” 

He recently concluded a sold-out tour supporting YBN Cordae, entrancing crowds across North America. VEVOalso selected him for its coveted DSCVR program. As part of the initiative, he turned up with cathartic live performances of “A.M.” and “Safe Zone” accompanied by a lone guitarist.

Now, he reveals his debut EP, Land of Nothing Real, set for release on April 242020.

About Lonr.

Emerging from under a quiet shroud of mystery, Lonr. arrives as a singular and cinematic talent whose vital and vibrant vision piques fascination as it blurs the lines between soul, soundtracks, and simmering Hip-Hop. After being uprooted from Los Angeles as a child and moving to Cape Cod, MA, Lonr. grew up feeling like the odd one out. Upon installing music software in high school, heentrenched himself in beat-making, creating his own universe to exist in. Inspired by the likes of PharrellOutKast, and Tyler, The Creator as well as film scores for Star Wars, Interstellar, and The Pursuit of Happyness, he developed his production chops and songwriting talents through countless hours by himself in front of the computer. On his way up, he became a sought-after songwriter, crafting hits and building worlds alongside other artists. By 2019, he found himself up for multiple GRAMMY® Awards for contributions to H.E.R.’s discography, winning two. At the same time, he began to quietly assemble what would become Lonr.’s own project, Land of Nothing Real.

“I always zone out and go into my own little world,” Lonr. explains. “That’s the Land of Nothing Real. If you don’t like where you are, you can escape into another realm. This project is really about love, longing, and desire. Those topics are always on people’s minds. I’m examining them with melodic and dreamy songs.”

Capturing palpable and relatable emotion, Lonr. might just make you feel a little less alone: “I want listeners to feel like this is something new,” he says. “Most of all, I hope they resonate with me and feel like they’re being heard and not so alone in this world.” Welcome to Lonr.’s world.
