The Virginmarys Release New Video Ahead Of UK Dates In April





Following the success of last year's critically acclaimed ep 'Sitting Ducks', The Virginmarys have been hard at work curating a special collection of music for their fans.

Titled the 'Northern Sun Sessions' and taking inspiration from cult favourite track 'Northern Sun', the band are busy recording an extensive catalogue of previously unreleased material and giving the demo recordings to their fans for FREE. These songs aren't B-sides, they are simply works in progress that demonstrates a British band with their fingers on the digital pulse, and the want to bring their fans closer to understanding what makes The Virginmarys tick.

For anyone that really knows the Macclesfield group, know that Ally (Dickaty, vocals and guitar) and Danny (Dolan, drums and percussion) have never been about album fillers and songs that have nothing to say. The Virginmarys cause and effect is one of real urgency, true potency, and it is difficult to ignore in an age where music is rapidly consumed and breakthrough music doesn't always, well, break through.

Fans and subscribers of The Virginmarys will have already received four songs (2 electric, 2 acoustic) before their 'Northern Sun' tour starts in April, with the most recent demo 'Blind Lead The Blind receiving an incredible response from the band's fanbase. "The fans have always been a huge part of following our true north, its blatantly obvious at the shows and the positive reactions via our social media", says Ally, "It's humbling and inspires us to move forward", Danny concurs, "We're very fortunate to have a dedicated army that meets up and follow the band around the country, a community/street team of over 1100 from all over the world that are busy promoting the band each day for nothing but love." "We’ve never been about trends or interested in the continual change of scenes around us," says Ally.

By taking control and enhancing music experiences for their fans, the 'Northern Sun Sessions' will see The Virginmarys release fresh, original and explosive rock songs, all recorded and released by the band and giving people a unique insight into how the songs will evolve and change in the lead up to the finished record. At the end of the project, Virginmarys fans will have a new studio album, (possibly a double), and a collection of all the 'Northern Sun Sessions'. With a valuable stream of gifts, videos, lyrics sheets, shows, songs, jams and more, this is set to be the most content music fans will have ever received from any band for FREE.

"It's about trying to make the best music possible and delivering a worth that we can all be proud of and enjoy together in a live setting", says Ally. "The upcoming April shows are more of a regional tour to celebrate the start of this project and get back out there in front of the fans. We're playing places we haven't played much or never played before. To finish the run of shows playing Primordial Radio's Birthday Bash is going to be ace.. we can't wait!"

  2. Since I seen the VIRGINMARYS play support in January last year I knew then I had to see them again so I followed them to Leeds, Camden rocks festival, Manchester, Liverpool, Halifax and back to Manchester again, loved every gig and worth every penny, iv also got tickets to four of their up and coming "NORTHERN SUN" tour this April along with a ticket to see them at Macclesfield festival in July, the VIRGINMARYS are an awesome band and gets better with every track, "all killers no fillers" so I say to those who've not heard them, buy their albums and if you've not seen them live, do it.... LONG LIVE THE VIRGINMARYS !!!!!!!!
    PEACE LOVE TRUTH MUSIC

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…

TO BE RELEASED MARCH 16TH ON APF RECORDS!
2018 marks the return of Oxford-based sludge-metal titans Desert Storm as they prepare to follow the release of 2014’s critically-acclaimed ‘Omniscient’ album with their new opus ‘Sentinels’, confirmed for release this coming March 16th via APF Records.


Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.


“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”



Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in …
