IN HEARTS WAKE RELEASE LIVE VIDEO FOR ‘SKYDANCER’

With new album ‘Skydancer’ a few short weeks away, In Hearts Wake have struck fear in the eyes of their competition by releasing a brutal live video for the title track from the forthcoming album.
Check it out here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-wlSMb7_gU
Filmed at the inaugural UNIFY Gathering in January, where the band headlined to an adoring crowd of 3.5million, the video shows the band at the height of their powers.
Eagle-eyed viewers will notice frontman Jake Taylor stalking the stage like a lion, metaphorically ripping the throats out of the supine crowd, who were as powerless as a newborn gazelle in the face of such awesome power.
Of the performance, Taylor says: “Roar.”
Scientists have claimed we should all just give up and go home because music has peaked.
‘Skydancer’ is (genuinely) due for release May 5th in the UK.

Eaves

 

Reveals video to single, Pylons, watch here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=EplthGATqCQ

Glacially beautiful folk-rock from the brilliant Leeds singer, with lyrics like daggers Sunday Times

Shot on the beautiful Dorset coast and directed by James Alexandrou, Eaves reveals the video to his forthcoming single, Pylons.

Pylons will be released on Heavenly Recordings on Monday April 27th 2015. Produced by Cam Blackwood, it is the opening track on What Green Feels Like, his debut album which is released on the same day.

A breathtaking four-minute arrangement, literally from a whisper to a scream, Pylons commands the listeners attention leaving you in no doubt that this kid is special.

Joe Lyons aka Eaves explains the video filming process: “It was a cold couple of days but beautiful. Me and Susanne had come up with a loose idea pertaining to the soundscapes and pace of the song rather than following any direct sentiment. It was my first time working with film photography and was an experiment to see in what ways we could add something visual to the sound. I feel we’ve delivered something we’re really happy with”.

Having previously toured alongside Nick Mulvey, Boy & Bear, Slow Club, Philip Selway and most recently Rhodes, Eaves has announced details of his own headline tour, featuring the full-band line-up, in May.

Full list of dates is as follows:

MAY

5th                                 Glasgow                                  Berkeley Suite

AUTOMATIC
NEW ALBUM RELEASED AUGUST 7th 

‘WHAT YOU DO TO ME’
AVAILABLE AS INSTANT GRAT WITH ALBUM PRE-ORDER

Don Broco are proud to announce their new album Automatic will be released on August 7th through Epic Records. The 10-track album is available to pre-order now with brand new track ‘What You Do To Me’ available as an instant grat track exclusively from the band’s website. You can also listen to that song HERE.

Automatic – produced by the Grammy Award winning Jason Perry – is the follow-up to Don Broco’s 2012 debut album Priorities. That album saw the band rise rapidly from cult heroes to a major force in British rock music, selling out headline shows at London’s Roundhouse and The Forum. They followed the album with the ‘You Wanna Know’ EP in 2013, scoring their first Top 40 hit with the lead track.

Now Don Broco return as an even more formidable force with Automatic, a huge crossover release that sees the band incorporating a vast range of influences into their musical melting pot – pop, funk, dance, rock and a healthy dose of 1980s New Romanticism.

The album will see the band winning over legions of new followers – while keeping current fans ecstatic – with their distinctive blend of incendiary rock power and pure pop sensibilities, all topped off with lead singer Rob Damiani’s unique vocals.

Album opener ‘Superlove’ sets the precedent, its huge harmonised choruses and sunshine swagger making it a sure-fire summer hit. The same is true for the title track, which is a mighty anthem-in-the-making, rich in feel-good harmony yet writhing with the band’s signature party-starting personality.

Further highlights such as the emotionally charged ‘Nerve’ and the afore-mentioned ‘What You Do To Me’, with its funky, carnal groove, demonstrate just how wide-reaching Don Broco’s ambitions have become. Alongside the brightly danceable pop elements, the band keep their rock hearts beating fiercely with heavy guitars and kick-in-the-face drum moments like the explosive ‘Fire’ and throbbing punch of ‘I Got Sick’.

Automatic sees the band at their most accomplished and honest. “This record is a lot more personal than the last one,” says Damiani. “Some of it is quite raw: we wanted to bare all, while still making a fun and exciting record.

And the fun and excitement will be on full display as Don Broco hit the road this summer, kicking off with their hotly anticipated Slam Dunk festival set in May. More touring information will follow shortly and the full Automatic track listing can be found below.

Don Broco are Rob Damiani (vocals), Simon Delaney (guitar), Matt Donnelly (drums) and Tom Doyle (bass).

JENSON BUTTON HEADS CELEBRITY FIELD FOR 2015 VIRGIN MONEY LONDON MARATHON

Formula 1 star Jenson Button heads a list of stars from television, film, music, radio and sport lining up for the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 26 April to raise funds for their chosen charities.

The 35-year-old former world champion and keen runner will be making his Virgin Money London Marathon debut in April and is hoping to beat his marathon personal best time of 2:58. Button is running for Charity of the Year Cancer Research UK and has set a fundraising target of £5,000.

Joining Button in the Cancer Research UK team is British fashion designer Henry Holland, who is raising money for the charity after several of his close family and friends were affected by cancer. Scottish television presenter and radio DJ Jenni Falconer will also be raising money for Cancer Research UK in her fourth London Marathon.

Several sports stars and presenters will compete with Button to be the quickest celebrity of 2015, all attempting to beat the current celebrity best times set by former professional cyclist Chris Newton (2:45:10) and model Nell McAndrew (2:54:39).

1968 Olympic 400m hurdles gold medallist David Hemery CBE, now 70, has been persuaded to run his first marathon for 39 years by former race director Dave Bedford. Hemery will be running with his son Peter and weightlifter Michaela Breeze to raise funds for his charity 21st Century Legacy. Breeze represented Great Britain at the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and won six medals for Wales over four Commonwealth Games.

Olympic champion rowers James Cracknell (running for Headway, the brain injury association) and Zac Purchase (running for SportsAid) line up alongside Welsh rugby union star Shane Williams (running for the World Wide Fund for Nature).

Sky Sports’ Sarah-Jane Mee will make her London Marathon debut, raising money for the children’s charity Sparks, whilst veteran marathon runner and fellow presenter Charlie Webster will run for the fourth time to raise funds for Centre Point.

Juliet Aubrey, Helen George and Dervla Kirwan are three of the famous faces from the world of television drama taking on the London Marathon for the first time this year.

Aubrey, ambassador for the charity Women for Women International, is most famous for her roles in ITV’s Primeval, and the BBC’s The White Queen and The Village. George meanwhile is best-known for her role as Trixie in the hugely successful BBC series Call the Midwife and is running for Macmillan.

Star of stage and screen, Kirwan found fame playing Assumpta Fitzgerald in household favourite Ballykissangel. She is running for the charity ActionAid.

Reality television stars Hugo Taylor and Oliver Proudlock will put aside the dramas of Channel 4’s Made in Chelsea to run in aid of Malaria No More and The Rainbow Trust, and the British Heart Foundation respectively. Whilst April will be Proudlock’s first experience of the London Marathon, Taylor completed the 2014 race in a time of 4:17:51.

Greg James, BBC Radio One DJ and television presenter, will make his marathon debut in London, raising funds for The Lords Taverner’s.

Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research will have a strong representation from the world of television including stars of Welsh drama Hinterland Hannah Daniel and Richard Harrington, Doc Martin’s Jessica Ransom, Casualty’s George Rainsford and Emmerdale’s Jeff Hordley and Tony Audenshaw.

Madame Tussauds London  announced a new multi-million pound Star Wars experience in collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm, and revealed the first wax figure from one of 11 immersive walk-in sets to be featured.click  here  to see  all  our photos  http://celebrityphotosuk.photoshelter.com/gallery-listYoda in his swamp as Madame Tussauds London announce a new multi-million pound Star Wars experience

The recently completed, amazingly realistic wax figure of Jedi Master Yoda was brought to a studio in London for designers to plan the final set, which brings to life the hostile swamps of Dagobah as featured in “Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back”.

Yoda’s swamp will feature mossy tree trunks, twisted roots and branches, decaying foliage and swirling fog to perfectly recreate his Dagobah habitat. The scene is one of 11 that will recreate iconic moments from Star Wars Episodes I-VI that feature 16 favourite heroes and villains, including Yoda on Dagobah, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader on the Death Star and Princess Leia in ’s Throne Room, among others.

Although only 66cm tall, Yoda’s figure took a team of 10 artists four months to finish and was recreated using detailed measurements and reference pictures from one of the original models used in the films. His distinctive green skin tone has been achieved with layers of carefully applied oil paint and his wispy grey hairs have been inserted individually by hand.

Work is now underway to bring the rest of the experience to life for a mid-May opening when fans will be able to co-star in some of the most famous scenes in film. Fans can sign up at www.madametussauds.com/london to be the first to know when tickets go on sale and to find all the latest news and updates.

PLAY PRINCIPLES LAUNCHED AT TOY FAIR CALL FOR POLITICAL FOCUS

20th January 2015; Today at the London Toy Fair the Make Time 2 Play campaign launched five play principles to ask politicians, in the lead up to the elections, to consider the importance of play for the healthy development of children.

The Make Time 2 Play Principles express the value of play across the policy landscape:

1. Every child needs space and time to play
2. Active play can help children keep healthy
3. Play-based learning adds educational opportunities at all ages
4. Safe places to play are good for families and good for communities
5. Children develop important life skills through play

Natasha Crookes, Director of Communication for the British Toy & Hobby Association, that runs the campaign, commented, “You can see the fun and enjoyment that children get from play and that should be the key driver for encouraging playtime. However behind all that fun children are developing the skills they will need for life. We are asking today that the political parties affirm the importance of play in the social fabric of family lives and the role that it has in getting children fit, aiding in education and making sure that there is time and place for play in our busy modern lives”.

Play is widely accepted to have huge value in developing children’s social skills, fitness levels, communication skills, creativity and imagination as well as teaching children about boundaries and risk.

The ‘Make Time 2 Play’ campaign highlights the importance of play in children’s lives, giving parents free play ideas that can be easily slotted in to busy schedules. The messages are promoted using primary research from academics and parents, free adverts donated by children’s broadcasters, and through a website, social media and free ‘play ideas’ app. For more information visit the new website – http://www.maketime2play.co.uk

Hostage Calm Premiere New Video for
‘A Thousand Miles Away From Here’ 

Die On Stage Out this week via Run For Cover Records

Hostage Calm have revealed a brand new video for the second track to come off the new album ‘Die On Stage’ which is released this week through Run For Cover Records.

The video for ‘A Thousand Miles Away From Here’ is now live here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IyQ3hsb7eI&feature=youtu.be

The track recently premiered online pre album release with Vice Noisey.

When talking about ‘A Thousand Miles Away From Here’, band member Chris comments:

It’s just a classic song about leaving, about problems reaching a breaking point. That’s why it’s just a crushing two minutes. It’s the last straw, the final moment, the decision.”

Throughout ‘Die On Stage’, Hostage Calm expands on their own identity, adding Glockenspiel, pianos, organs and bells into their arrangements. The record captures a classic sound that Hostage Calm has developed into a progressive and original style.

More about Hostage Calm:

Politics and punk rock have always gone hand in hand, especially for Connecticut’s Hostage Calm. And while their sound may have shifted over the years from melodic hardcore to straight up power pop, their political message has only gotten stronger.  Hostage Calm first received national attention in 2010 with the release of their self-titled debut, using this success as a way to draw fans’ attention to the importance of LGBT equality. Through offering free downloads of the record to encourage the signing of an online petition to senators opposing marriage equality, playing numerous benefits, and distributing their now iconic “I Support Same-Sex Marriage” shirt, Hostage Calm demonstrated a commitment to their political beliefs that has become all too rare in punk rock today.

With their 2012 critically acclaimed record Please Remain Calm, the members of Hostage Calm continued to demonstrate their commitment to political punk.  Hailed as “the punk album of the Great Recession,” Please Remain Calm tackled the grim realities of the recessions’ effects on the younger generation head-on.  This time around, Die On Stagecelebrates the post-millennial fatalism in today’s youth culture, creating a message seldom found in pop-punk. The politically charged band continues to offer a genuine view of American culture through critical eyes.

The band entered Pennsylvania’s Studio 4 to produce their fourth full-length with Will Yip (Balance and Composure, Title Fight), as well as including long-time friend Vinnie Caruana (I Am the Avalanche, The Movielife) on the track “Raised”. The record will be out on the rapidly growing Run For Cover Records (Tigers Jaw, Modern Baseball, Basement, Pity Sex),  which is run by Hostage Calm guitarist Tom Chiari.
