Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 2.44.50 PM.png

Papa Roach have revealed the new music video for “Born For Greatness” exclusively with Apple Music. “This video is to showcase to the world that no matter your struggle and/or adversity, you are born for greatness,” says Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix.

Featuring galvanizing performances from Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham, Jen Bricker, and Jean Sok - three talented individuals who refuse to be limited by physical challenges - the video is a testament to the limitless possibilities within all of us.

Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham was born with spina bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord. Fotheringham has gone on to become a professional WCMX (wheelchair motocross) athlete. He completed the first ever wheelchair front flip while touring the world with Nitro Circus.

Jen Bricker was born without legs and her heart on the opposite side of her chest.  “Never say can’t” is her motto. The professional aerialist has toured the world and performed with global superstars including Britney Spears.

Jean Sok is a breakdancer with only one leg. Employing “b-boy” style techniques, Sok incorporates his crutches into his moves, using them as an extension of his arms. He gained international acclaim as a performer for Cirque Du Soliel’s Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour and Michael Jackson One.

Directed by Bryson Roatch, “Born For Greatness” is the latest single from the band’s ninth LP, Crooked Teeth (out now on Eleven Seven Music)

Papa Roach are currently wrapping up their Australian tour.  They are set to tour with A Day To Remember in February and March before launching into their North American headline tour with support from Nothing More and Escape the Fate on April 5th.  All dates are listed below.

Bad Wolves Release Cover of The Cranberries' "Zombie" In Memory of Dolores O'Riordan

Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan was set to record vocals for hard rock band Bad Wolves’ cover of “Zombie” this past Monday, January 15th, the day of her tragic passing. Today the band release their version of “Zombie” in her memory, with proceeds going to O’Riordan’s three children.

“It was the greatest honor to know she liked our version and wanted to sing on it,” says Bad Wolves singer Tommy Vext. “We’re deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Dolores and by the fact that she’s leaving behind three children so we are donating the proceeds from the song to her kids.”

“It’s such a powerful song and the themes are still so relevant, we wanted to release it in her memory,” he continues. “The original lyrics include the line ‘It’s the same old theme Since nineteen-sixteen. In your head, in your head, they’re still fighting’. It’s a reference to the IRA bombings during the Irish Rebellion. We changed that lyric to say ‘2018’ and she was really excited about that because the nations may have changed but we’re still fighting the same battles today. Humanity is still fighting to assert itself despite all the conflicts.”

Vext further discusses the decision to release The Cranberries’ generation-defining song in an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone.

Nikki Sixx, Mick Rock & More Share Favorite David Bowie Memories & Songs at Sonos' 'Song Stories: Bowie' Event

QUOTE HIGHLIGHTS:

“He [Sixx] was unquestionably a peer [of Bowie’s]. By the end of the ‘80s, Mötley Crüe had scaled incredible commercial heights and established themselves as pioneers of the decade’s glam metal movement. Still, Sixx considers Crüe the “bastard children” of the glam rock zeitgeist that Bowie helped spearhead.”

IN FLAMES RELEASE "DOWN, WICKED & NO GOOD" COVERS EP FEATURING SONGS BY DEPECHE MODE, NIN, CHRIS ISAAK

InFlames_DW&NGCoversEP_Artwork.jpg

Gothenburg-based metal heavyweights IN FLAMES surprise fans with a four-track covers EP Down, Wicked & No Good” out today on streaming platforms worldwide during SOLD OUT hometown show at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.

To debut their cover of Depeche Mode’s 1997 hit single “It’s No Good”, In Flames are taking over Depeche Mode’s Facebook page for the entire day today, releasing exclusive content and a new video for the song - watch HERE.

The panoptic covers collection also includes In Flames versions of Alice In Chains’ “Down In A Hole,” Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” and a live bonus version of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt”. It sees the Swedish quintet expanding beyond metal to incorporate the group’s varied musical taste and expansive sonic range.

 

“We’ve been fans of Depeche Mode since we were as young as 10. Getting to do our rendition of ‘It’s No Good’ showed us a different side of the song – it brought new meanings to us. We relate to the lyrics and power of the song so heavily that it almost feels as if we could have written it ourselves. They’re a band that we’ve always looked up to. Growing up, you either listened to Pop, Synths or Rock and even though we are a metal band, Depeche Mode inspired a lot of the electronic elements we use in our music today.”

Earlier this week, the Swedish icons IN FLAMES kicked off a 25 date Co-Headline arena tour with American heavyweights, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and special guests OF MICE & MEN in Helsinki. Watch an exclusive clip from the show here.

BAD WOLVES Signs to Eleven Seven Music, Debut LP Set for Spring 2018

NEW YORK, November 2, 2017: Newly signed to Eleven Seven Music, BAD WOLVES (managed by Zoltan Bathory of Five Finger Death Punch) reveal “Toast To The Ghost” exclusively today via Sirius XM Radio’s “Liquid Metal”.

Out tomorrow on all DSPs, “Toast To The Ghost” - which can be previewed here - is the first song revealed off the band’s debut album, slated for Spring 2018 on Eleven Seven Music. The track provides a taste of what’s in store for fans on the forthcoming collection: bold, metal-infused anthemic hard-rock.

“We’re already fans of the band so it’s fantastic to welcome BAD WOLVES to the Eleven Seven label family,” says Eleven Seven Label Group COO Steve Kline.

Consisting of of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-Divine Heresy), drummer John Boecklin (ex-DevilDriver), guitarist Doc Coyle (Vagus Nerve, ex-God Forbid), guitarist Chris Cain (Bury Your Dead), and bassist Kyle Konkiel (ex-In This Moment), BAD WOLVES burst onto the scene earlier this year with the self-released debut single “Learn To Live” and quickly became ones-to-watch.

The Los Angeles-based five-piece is now gearing up for an even bigger 2018 with new music, a new label, and new management.

“From a creative standpoint we were very fortunate to garnish the support of not only a friend we trusted as a manager but also respected as an artist and entrepreneur,” explains the band of the decision to work with Bathory’s Management Company. “Zoltan's outside the box thinking and unique perspective helped broadened the vision of what we hope to accomplish as a band”.

“I knew these guys for many years from their previous bands so I knew they were all exceptional musicians, but when they formed “Bad Wolves” and played me the first few songs I thought …Okay... there is fire here, this one has the magical combination. Hard work and persistence always outstrip talent, and these guys have both,” adds Bathory.

NIKKI SIXX to End iHeartRadio Show SixxSense, The Heroin Diaries Broadway Play Coming Soon!

NS 7-24-17 (2) (1).jpg

Today global rock icon Nikki Sixx announces plans to step down as host of and end his nationally-syndicated Premiere Networks / iHeartRadio rock Radio programs, Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx, The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Classic with Nikki Sixx at the end of this year. His final broadcast will be December 31, 2017.

Launched at the beginning of 2010, his flagship radio program Sixx Sense quickly became the biggest syndicated rock show in America, distributed to more than 130 stations nationwide and boasting nearly 3 Million global weekly listeners. Sixx has welcomed an influential array of prominent musicians, celebrities, and noteworthy personalities as guests on the show. During his tenure as host he interviewed royalty such as Sir Paul McCartney, Slash, Steven Tyler, Metallica, Stevie Nicks, and Dolly Parton, boxing champion Mike Tyson, director Cameron Crowe, celebrity health expert Dr. Oz, and many more.

In addition, the program provided a unique platform for new music discovery with Sixx hand-selecting up-and-coming talent and introducing his audience to future superstars. Sixx launched trailblazing artists such as Awolnation, Greta Van Fleet, and Nothing More among many more by debuting their music on Sixx Sense.

 

Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks, stated: “When we first partnered with Nikki in 2010, we set out to create a unique program from the perspective of true rock star, and that’s exactly what we did. We’re proud of the work we did together to make Sixx Sense one of the most-widely-syndicated Rock radio programs in the country, while establishing the ultimate platforms for rock music fans, as well as new and established artists. It’s been a pleasure working with Nikki, and we wish him all the best.”

 

“I grew up discovering music on the radio,” explains Nikki Sixx.”So to host my own show over the nearly eight years of Sixx Sense was beyond my wildest dreams. I could not have done it without my amazing team in the studio, or the guests, musicians, and listeners that brought the show to life. It’s been an inspirational journey and I’ll always be a fan of the medium, but it’s time to shift gears outside the realm of solely radio. I’m in the process of developing new and unique programming and ventures across multiple platforms. But I’m really gonna miss Sixx Sense.”

Sixx is stepping down from his hosting duties to focus on myriad new endeavors in 2018 including his blossoming photography career, television endeavors and the Broadway adaptation of his New York Times Bestselling Memoir The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life of a Shattered Rockstar.

Featuring music from SIXX:A.M.’s The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, the first-ever soundtrack tied to a book release, Sixx has teamed up with former Live Nation Chairman and Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark Broadway producer Michael Cohl to bring this compelling story of addiction and redemption to life on stage.

Originally released in 2007, both the book and soundtrack will see Tenth Anniversary Editions released later this month: The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life of a Shattered Rockstar ft. new chapters and never-before-seen photographs is out October 24th via Gallery Books / Simon and Schuster. The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack: 10th Anniversary Edition by SIXX:A.M. ft. three newly reimagined 2017 tracks including #1 hit “Life Is Beautiful 2017” is out October 27th via Eleven Seven Music.

2018 will also see Sixx take his first-ever photo exhibition Conversations with Angels around the world in partnership with Leica Camera. On display through November 5th 2017 at the Leica Gallery Los Angeles, the collection showcases the artist’s talent for storytelling across platforms with intimate images by Sixx depicting homelessness and drug addiction amongst other subjects; topics that he was all too familiar with before photography helped change his life. Sixx has also partnered with Leica Camera on the debut of a limited edition Nikki Sixx Leica Q camera. More info here.
