Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers confirm final stop of 40th Anniversary Tour- Hollywood Bowl, Sept 21

TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS CONFIRM FINAL STOP OF
40TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR AT   
HOLLYWOOD BOWL, SEPTEMBER 21
FEATURING SPECIAL GUEST
LUCINDA WILLIAMS
SHOW MARKS THE BAND’S SEVENTH PERFORMANCE AT THE HISTORIC VENUE
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ final stop on their extensive North American tour will be at theHollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA on ThursdaySeptember 21. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, June 29 at 10AM PT.
This climatic finale will be the band’s seventh performance at the beloved, historic amphitheater.Lucinda Williams will join as the band’s very special guest. Williams has a long history with the band—the band recorded her song “Change the Locks” in 1996 for Songs And Music From She’s The One,’ she opened for the band on the “Echo Tour” in 1999, and most recently, she performed Petty’s songs “Rebels” and “Southern Accents” when he was honored as the 2017 MusiCares Person Of The Year.
The tour, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of their self-titled debut, has received widespread critical acclaim:
“Petty and the Heartbreakers are that rare group—like the Stones, the Boss, Fleetwood Mac and just a few others—who can fill an entire concert with certified mega hits spanning decades.”—Hartford Courant
“Petty essentially is classic rock music. To see him on stage is to see the radio come to life…Petty has lived in all of the radios of our lives, even in the age of the algorithm playlist.”—Denver Post
“One of America’s most enduring rock and roll bands.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“Nearly every song aroused a sing-along, some more uproarious than others, but each evinced the durability of Petty’s songs, which, no matter their age, felt timeless or independent of the decades in which they were born…The Heartbreakers are America’s Rolling Stones: one of its most respectable, esteemed and longest-running rock acts."—Kansas City Star
“It was remarkable to consider just how well these songs have aged through the years. So many of these classic Petty cuts seem to exist in the ether, and the very idea of a world without his music is hard to fathom.”—American Songwriter
“…his band’s popularity endures, as do the hits spanning decades.”—Chicago Tribune
 “The best thing about Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers is that this band never plays as if it’s searching for an anthem or immortality. Petty has always been propelled by a strong creative drive, but at the end of the day the band’s jolt comes as much from kinship as kismet. Turns out, only lifelong friends can make sounds like these.”—Huffington Post
“It’s a testament to the depth of Tom Petty’s catalog that he can get away with playing ‘I Won’t Back Down’ (recorded by no less than Johnny Cash) and ‘Free Fallin’ (performed probably zillions of times at karaoke bars worldwide) as the sixth and seventh songs of a two-hour set. The number of living popular music performers for whom those two classics would not automatically have to be the show-closing anthems is probably in the single digits…He gave lovely introductions to the Heartbreakers, one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands ever”—Austin American Statesman
“Petty’s understated genius applies not just to his personal demeanor, but to his music. He’s always accessible, without ever being dumb or boring.”—Minnesota Public Radio/The Current
 “A two-hour-plus rock ‘n’ roll history lesson, replete with audience participation and much gratitude from the man in the spotlight.”—Atlanta Journal Constitution
“Not too many rock bands are able to stick around that long, and few of the ones that do last that long can’t still pack arenas and make great albums. Petty and his bandmates still do that.”—Bradenton Herald
“It’s time we start claiming ownership of the greatest American rock band of all time: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers…Petty's an icon, a Hall of Famer, one of the all-time great rock songsmiths.”—Tampa Bay Times
“So why was Saturday’s concert by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers so satisfying…Because Petty has written and recorded so many songs that have become part of the classic-rock songbook.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Delivering a retrospective show that not only rekindled memories but also stood as a spirited tribute to a sound unbound by fleeting style.”—The Columbus Dispatch
 “The iconic rock collective gave a performance that served as a reminder to the crowd that they were truly in the presence of living legends.”—Red Dirt Report
 “Not many classic rock bands get to enjoy a 40th anniversary and even fewer are able to do so by selling out arenas wherever they play. In the case of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, they’re celebrating the occasion with as polished a set as any band you’ll see.”—Best Classic Bands
“Petty then led his troupe through a career-spanning performance that included one masterful hit after another.”—Jambase
Additionally, Chris Stapleton, Peter Wolf, The Lumineers and The Shelters will perform as special guests on coming North American dates this summer. The band will also headline London’s Hyde Park as part of Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time with special guests Stevie Nicks, The Lumineers and The Shelters—this will be their only European performance of 2017.

Broken Social Scene Releases New Song "Stay Happy" + Announce Tour Dates

BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE RELEASES 
RELEASES "STAY HAPPY"
FIRST WEST COAST DATES SINCE 2011 ANNOUNCED TODAY
HUG OF THUNDER OUT JULY 7 ON ARTS & CRAFTS
(Photo credit: Norman Wong)
Toronto's Broken Social Scene today released "Stay Happy," the fourth song from their upcoming album Hug of Thunder. Led by the vocals of newcomer Ariel Engle, listen to"Stay Happyhere.
Broken Social Scene are also excited to announce a run of West Coast dates in addition to their previously announced 2017 tour dates. The West Coast tour, which are their first West Coast shows since 2011, will kick off in Vancouver on October 21 and wrap up in Los Angeles on October 28 with The Belle Game opening these shows. The band has also announced three special performances opening for Arcade Fire in Canada on November 1 in Windsor and November 3 and 4 in their hometown of Toronto.  A presale for these shows via Spotify will happen tomorrow, Tuesday June 27at 10 am local time, and go on sale to the public on Thursday, June 29 at 10 am local time. For these dates,Broken Social Scene are partnering with Plus 1 so that $1 from every ticket goes towards providing access to arts education for young people in disadvantaged communities.

The tour will follow the release of Broken Social Scene's upcoming album Hug of Thunder, out on Arts & Crafts on July 7th, 2017BSS have released three songs from the record to date, listen to "Halfway Home," " Hug of Thunder," and "Skyline" now.

Produced by Joe Chiccarelli and mixed by Shawn EverettHug Of Thunder is everything BSS fans love from the Canadian collective and then some, an album overflowing with glorious open chords, multi-voice harmonies, spacious psychedelia-tinted breakdowns, and more.  It is a panoramic, expansive album that manages to be both epic and intimate; and like all things BSS, in troubled times, it offers a serotonin rush of positivity.  Since their inception in the early Aughts, BSS have always pushed sonic boundaries while remaining reverent of a perfect chorus; almost twenty years down the line, Hug Of Thunder sharpens that balance.  The record's twelve songs refract the band's varying emotions, methods, and techniques in ways that not only reference their other albums, but surpass them.  Hug Of Thunder is righteous but warm, angry but loving, melodic but uncompromising.  And if you've ever fallen in love with Broken Social Scene - as many of us have - it is a perfect return that was truly worth the wait.

"With all-voices blazing and a horn section blaring, it was Broken Social Scene in Fleetwood Mac mode, but with lots of unexpected turns jutting out from mini-explosions of euphoria throughout." NPR on "Halfway Home"
"'Skyline,'  the third single off their forthcoming album Hug of Thunder, is a return to form, where aimless roaming sounds remarkably intimate." - Pitchfork
"Broken Social Scene songs are propelled by the size of the group, and when it all converges they're able to pull optimism from fear of aging, heartbreak, and the rigors of modern life." - Vulture
"They're still making songs that sound vast and cacophonous, tracks that are built to flood the brain with serotonin. " - Noisey
"Soaring, rousing, and perfect for sunsets." - Entertainment Weekly

WIDOWSPEAK --Announce new album "Expect The Best" -- August 25. NPR premieres first single "Dog"

WIDOWSPEAK ANNOUNCE FORTHCOMING ALBUM EXPECT THE BEST

LP OUT VIA CAPTURED TRACKS AUGUST 25

VIDEO FOR FIRST SINGLE "DOG" 
PREMIERES VIA NPR

FALL TOUR DATES CONFIRMED

Widowspeak are excited to announce the August 25 release of a new album,
Expect The Best, via Captured Tracks. Today the band reveals a video for the first single, "Dog," which premiered via  NPR's First Watch .  Widowspeak's Molly Hamilton told NPR the song is, "about the compulsion to move on from things and places, even people, when you're not necessarily ready to. Sometimes, I get caught up in 'the grass is always greener' mentalities, or cling to an idea that 'I'd be happy if...' and then make a drastic change. Then, inevitably, I feel restless a few months later and it starts again."  Read the rest of the Q&A here.  NPR note, "Widowspeak fuses lightness and darkness like few others"  and of "Dog" they say it "captures Widowspeak's distinct mix perfectly, while speaking to larger internal conflicts."

Watch "Dog" Here

The video for "Dog" was directed by musician/artist Otium,and filmed in Tacoma, WA.   
In support of the new album Widowspeak have confirmed a Fall tour that kicks offSeptember 8 at The Great Scott in Boston, MA and concludes at Brooklyn'sRough Trade on October 13.  Along the way the tour stops in TorontoLos Angeles and Chicago.  Widowspeak are also playing in Teulon, MB on July 28 as part of the Ignite Retreats (Real Love Summer Fest).  The full tour is listed below.  
On, Expect The Best, Widowspeak use familiar aesthetics as a narrative device, a purposeful nostalgic backdrop for songs that ask, "How did we get here?" Sonically, they exist somewhere in the overlap between somber indie rock, dream pop, slow-core and their own invented genre, "cowboy grunge." At the heart of the band, there is a palpable duality, a push and pull between the delicate and the deliberate: the contrast of lead singer-songwriter Molly Hamilton's strikingly beautiful voice and poignant melodies with the terrestrial reality of being a four-piece rock band.  
Expect the Best sees Widowspeak finding their greatest balance between opposing forces: darkness and light, quiet and loud, tension and calm.  

The album was written while Hamilton was living in Tacoma, Washington after previous stints in upstate New York and Brooklyn. So much moving around, and specifically a move back to the place she grew up, was the catalyst for a record concerned with self-examination and the sense of dread that comes from feeling adrift - a feeling that prevails on today's single "Dog."


Expect the Best is the follow up to 2015's All Yours. While previous albums were conceived as a duo with lead guitarist Robert Earl Thomas, the new LP finds Widowspeak playing to the specific strengths of the current touring incarnation (James Jano on drums, Willy Muse on bass). The album, recorded by Kevin MacMahon(SwansReal Estate), exhibits a marked increase in energy that reflects the band's live show and the organic way it was created: by four people in a room together. The band collectively navigate dynamic changes with subtlety and restraint; the nine tracks here reach highs of wide-eyed lushness and plumb the depths of resigned melancholy. Their usual palette of dusty guitars and angular twang are still here front and center, but now with a bit more 90s homage, even if abstractly. The Pacific Northwest influences creep in throughout, as do varying flavors of New York's legacy, the city the band still partially calls home. 

Hamilton says of the album, "In the past I've felt compelled to write songs that are more optimistic than I'm actually feeling, as if I could make it true, as if everything in the past was significant or beautiful in a way, even if it was painful. But the truth is that not everything makes sense, and not every day of your life is an experience of clear cut emotional clarity," says Hamilton. "I struggle with this compulsion to pull away from people, pull away from the things I enjoy doing, and sometimes literally picking up and moving away when I am feeling uneasy and anxious about my future in a given space, physical or mental. Social media these days can exacerbate that as well."

Expect the Best is Widowspeak's heaviest record to date, but never loses the sense of quiet intimacy that they are known for.

Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas - New Album, National Tour


JESSICA HERNANDEZ & THE DELTAS RELEASE THEIR ANTICIPATED SOPHOMORE ALBUM

  BAND BRINGS THEIR EXPLOSIVE LIVE SHOW ACROSS THE COUNTRY ON NATIONAL HEADLINE TOUR
Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas are proud to say their sophomore album “Telephone / Telefono” was released this past Friday June 23rd. This anticipated followed up to their acclaimed debut “Secret Evil” which NPR raved “has it all” and "song after song, one thing is consistent: a powerful, undeniable voice,” is being praised by critics, music fans and concertgoers. 

NPR’s Alt Latino says "If you've ever wondered what the soundtrack to a film set in Detroit, Havana and Mexico City might sound like, Jessica Hernandez has an answer for you … Telephone/TelĂ©fono, will no doubt appeal to fans across several continents as Hernandez created the songs in both English and Spanish versions … [songs] 'Hummingbird'/'ColibrĂ­' highlights how beautifully Hernandez manages this delicate balancing act — and, while she's at it, warms up Motown-infused garage-rock with touches of tropical psych-cumbia and punk cabaret."

"Jessica Hernandez has the kind of seductive, affecting voice that, heard
once, is impossible to forget … Hernandez and her Deltas remain a force
to be reckoned with.” - BUST Magazine

Jessica fuses "the ska/punk ethos of Save Ferris and the roaring range of
Amy Winehouse” - Noisey
A second generation Cuban and Mexican-American, Jessica felt it her duty to further explore her own Hispanic heritage on the band's new record. Jessica pushed herself to use Spanish in ways she had never previously attempted; rewriting songs with the invaluable aid of her mates in Mexico City, paying close attention to the song’s translations, sentence structure and phrasing. The end result is Jessica & The Deltas upping the ante on their already one-of-a-kind sound-clash of pop, psychedelic rock and punk cabaret, with fresh and emotive Spanish and English recordings.

“Gold-flecked grooves of soul pop, jittery and shining with the same accessible
vibes despite the varied language.” - Consequence Of Sound

"The record bursts with zippy, soulful pop rock that draws on dynamic Latin influences, ’80s synth-pop and a bit of blues flair for its power.” - Westword

Long hailed as an explosive and theatrical live outfit, Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas have already hit the road; highlighted by headline dates, radio concerts, festival appearances, and the band has no plans on stopping. Additional dates will be announced shortly!

“When you first see Jessica Hernandez perform onstage with her band, the Deltas, you simply can't take your eyes off her. She moves across the stage like a snake, slithering past her band mates and attacking the crowd with her hair-raising wail, turning newbies into fans and fans into devotees. Her onstage persona is larger than life - commanding, confident, and simply badass.”
– Detroit Metro Times

Check out the official videos for the Paste Magazine approved new songs “Run Too Far” and “Hot Damn.” http://bit.ly/2sAqP4D  http://bit.ly/2osJ9WE
