A LIFE ONCE LOST: New Studio Updates from Planet Red

Philadelphia, PA’s A LIFE ONCE LOST is issuing a new update from Planet Red in Richmond, VA on the recording of their upcoming full-length release with Season of Mist. Planet Red is owned and operated by producer Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, Impending Doom).


“We are hustling along here with this album,” states vocalist Bob Meadows. “It’s going to be a beast of a record and fans can expect a little more honesty both musically and lyrically with an amalgamation of the ALOL signature style and some other surprises that have yet to be over played within the metal community. We are making this record because we enjoy the art of making music, not because we have to make a new record. As long as we are happy playing in ALOL, we will continue to grow and take our sound further.”


After only several days in the studio, the band is making quick progress without sacrificing important details. Meadows adds, “Right now we’re halfway done with guitars and bass. I’ve finished vocals for several tracks and we’re looking to finish basic recording and then fine-tune everything for the next few weeks. We’re going to be posting some video updates in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for those.”


Before leaving to record in Richmond, the band landed a residency for the summer at the infamous Kung Fu Necktie in their hometown of Philadelphia, PA. “We are doing a July residency at the most lawless club in Philly, Kung Fu Necktie (KFN),” states guitarist Doug Sabolick. “Every week we will have special guests playing and each show will be a different line up. Come check out all the new ALOL material as we tighten up our show and get ready to unleash our new album.”


Kung Fu Necktie, located at 1250 North Front Street in Philadephia, PA, will host the band for performances on July 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th. Stay tuned for line-up announcements coming soon!


In addition to the KFN performances, the band recently announced a string of summer tour dates with California sludge metal band Black Sheep Wall. The tour kicks off on June 23rd in Richmond, VA, ending on July 2nd in Philadelphia, PA.

Electro Rhythmic-Pop Duo speakers Release Debut EP New Frequency May 8

Los Angeles based duo speakers fuse elements of dance, R&B, hip-hop and electronic pop, to craft their own unique sound on their debut EP New Frequency to be released exclusively on iTunes on May 8. On the four-track EP (released by Virgin Records in conjunction with independent label Newco, where the duo were first discovered by Troy Carter and Matt Michelsen), singer/rapper/lyricist Keon B and musician/producer Blair Taylor fuse genres and deliver hyper-experimental party jams like “Bass” and the funked-up instant classic “And Her Too.”


New Frequency also features guest appearances from Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes on “Runnin’ It,” an old-school-spirited anthem backed by a futuristic groove and songstress NiRé All’Dai on “Right Right,” a super-slick, club-ready banger.

Fans can click here to check out a Karmaloop exclusive video of speakers working with Travie in their Capitol Records studio.

Speakers “Runnin’ It” in studio with Travie McCoy

speakers is the genre-warping product of many years of musical adventuring on the part of Keon and Blair (both 21-years-old). As a big-time Beatles/Prince fan growing up in small-town Georgia, Keon began writing songs for his church choir as a boy-then completely threw himself into music after the murder of a beloved aunt who’d long supported his music dreams. Four years later, at age 17, Keon moved to New Orleans to pursue his singing/rapping/songwriting career and eventually got wind of a young, intensely talented producer named Blair Taylor.


In high demand, Blair (who’d attended the Grammy Foundation’s Grammy Camp on full scholarship after his family lost their home in Hurricane Katrina) waited a year before returning Keon’s many text messages and voicemails. But once the two got together, their chemistry was undeniable. The duo decided to dub their project “speakers” because, as Blair notes, “you need two, a left and a right. We are not one without the other.”


Three days after the release of New Frequency (so named because …”we’re launching a new sound that won’t be limited by existing genres” according to Blair.), speakers will release their video for “And Her Too.” Premiering on VEVO on May 11, “And Her Too” was directed by Cameron Duddy (who’s previously worked with Bruno Mars and AWOLNATION).


And on May 15, speakers will host the New Frequency release show at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles.


speakers will make their second appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly on May 8. Featuring clips from their show earlier this year at the El Rey Theatre, the Carson Daly appearance will include performances of “Right Right” and “Seat Filla.” Click here for a look at speakers performing “Bass” from their first appearance on the show.

New Frequency EP tracklist:

  1. And Her Too
  2. Right Right (featuring NiRé All’Dai)
  3. Bass
  4. Runnin’ It (featuring Travie McCoy)

SPIDER ROCKETS Offering Free Download of New Single “Scream”

SPIDER ROCKETS want to be sure that everyone is ready to get Bitten with their new album on June 5th. To give the fans a taste of what they can expect on their new album, SPIDER ROCKETS are offering 10,000 free downloads of their new single “Scream”.

Head over to http://www.spiderrockets.com and download your free mp3 now.


Singer Helena Cos commented on the free gift the band has spun up for their fans:


“Group hug or a good scream?  Sometimes nothing beats a good scream.  Our song, ‘Scream,’ seems to resonate with people and we wanted to do something special to thank our fans for the support.”


Be sure to check out the exclusive three part video “Coffee Talk” series which is being hosted exclusively by AMP Magazine. In the first installment SPIDER ROCKETS dissect the first tracks from Bitten and answer some very interesting and intriguing questions. The first video can be viewed HERE. Look for the second and third segments to be released in the coming weeks.


Check out the track “Going Down”, which is currently streaming HERE


SPIDER ROCKETS combines contemporary loud rock with classic rock elements. The New Jersey based band travels the sonic spectrum from dark and seductive to energetic to angry, with a dynamic live show and scream-along anthems. Interestingly enough for a band called SPIDER ROCKETS, it is a bit strange that every member of the band is afraid of spiders… Although it seems that they may be starting to overcome their fear based on the title of their new album, Bitten.


On Bitten, the band worked once again with producer Eric Rachel in New Jersey. In South Florida, Ryan Sambrook provided additional production and Zach Ziskin mixed the album. From both a compositional and performance standpoint, Bitten is the group’s strongest work to date. Long before completion of the record, an early rendition of one stand-out track “Scream,” garnered over 35,000 hits on YouTube without any promotional efforts and no official release. It is available for viewing HERE.


Now, savvy at the art of song-crafting, SPIDER ROCKETS is ready to unleash Bitten upon the masses. SPIDER ROCKETS will be lining up national tour dates in support of the album. Preliminary dates are listed below with more dates to be announced shortly.


SPIDER ROCKETS was one of the last acts famed manager Bill Aucoin (who has managed acts including Kiss, Lordi, Tantric and others) was contemplating taking on. When Aucoin passed away in 2010, his long time partner and companion, Roman Fernandez, took over day-to-day management of SPIDER ROCKETS. Fernandez did this because he truly believes in the band and wants to make sure SPIDER ROCKETS continue following in the legacy of Aucoin.

American Music Award Best New Artist winner Hot Chelle Rae today announces summer tour dates in support of pop superstar Demi Lovato on her highly anticipated U.S. tour. The new dates kick off shortly after the band wraps another leg of their cross-country headlining “Beautiful Freaks Tour 2012,” which has already sold out in many top markets like New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta and more.

Hot Chelle Rae recently launched their brand new single “Honestly” and the music video for the song, featuring Ashley Benson from the ABC Family hit series Pretty Little Liars, racked up over 2 million views on VEVO within the 1st three days of its release. With over 4 million digital singles sold by the band to date, “Honestly,” co-written by Hot Chelle Rae, is already on the hit making path set by their platinum selling single “I Like It Like That” and its multi-platinum predecessor  “Tonight Tonight,” all featured on their sophomore album WHATEVER.
In addition to the album’s three smash singles, WHATEVER also features “Why Don’t You Love Me,” featuring future tour mate and guest vocalist Demi Lovato, finger-snapper “Radio” (with rising rapper Bei Maejor), the heart-melting ballad “Keep You With Me,” be-yourself anthem and headlining tour name “Beautiful Freaks,” and the title track, the “three in the air and you just don’t care” anthem for the now generation “Whatever.”  The NY POST calls WHATEVER “effervescent” and USA TODAY describes WHATEVER as an album full of “tight hooks, savvy cameos, and sing-along choruses so insanely catchy…Hot Chelle Rae is riding a great buzz.”


Declared “one of the catchiest pop-rock anthems of the summer” by USA Today, the album’s first single “Tonight Tonight” crashed into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July, shot to No. 1 at Hot AC radio in September, and was certified double-platinum in the U.S and Australia, and platinum in Canada. The band followed it up with “I Like It Like That,” which Entertainment Weekly called “bubbly elasti-funk” and an “official fall-resisting battle cry.”

Orcas (Benoît Pioulard + The Sight Below) Premieres New Music Video

Orcas aka Haze-pop auteur Benoît Pioulard and post-minimalist composer Rafael Anton Irisarri (The Sight Below) have premiered their new video for “Arrow Drawn” with Noisey. The single is lifted from their self-titled debut album, out this week with Morr MusicConsequence of Sound says the duo “conjure washes of bass-forward sound…peppered with airy lyrics and fleeting repetitive wisps of piano, guitar, and percussion.”Orcas bridges together the furthest aspects of the two’s previous solo work that’s been published on Kranky, Touch, Miasmah, Room40, and Ghostly International. Together, they create a careful balance of chiaroscuro elements, where pop hook and spatial ambience converge. Orcas has taken an immersive, fluid vector for their passions; a resonant call like sonar from the depths.

Steelseries Sensei Gaming Mouse Review


Steelseries has one of the best mice that we’ve reviewed in NeuFutur. It is based off of the Xai, and provides gamers with a number of fixes over the original. The mouse is designed to be beat to hell; no amount of hard-core gaming will even put a dent into the mouse. The finish on the top side can easily be wiped off, while the programming aspect of the mouse buttons will ensure a quicker response time. There are a number of non game-related functions for the Sensei; I found the mouse to be extraordinarily strong when editing in Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Excel. For those that are used to stock mice, the Sensei does have a slight learning curve. This is largely due to the sheer amount of real estate the users will feel that they have gained.

For those concerned about the aesthetics of their peripherals, the Sensei can glow in any of 16 million colors. The customization options far outstrip other similar mice, both in terms of sheer look and actual optimization. The presence of the 32 bit ARM processor in the Sensei provides real-time representation of the user’s motions, while not taxing the computer to which it is attached. Essentially, the presence of this processor doubles the sensitivity that users will experience; the Sensei is the only mouse that can marry together these twin paragons of versatility and beauty.

The durability of the Sensei goes down even though the glides; the UPE which these consist will remove sticking and hesitations to users. Taken all together, the Sensei is a mouse that will be with a buyer for years; it is the complete package. Check out the Steelseries website for more information; they have a busy 2012 slate of products.

Rating: 9.2/10
