The Press Release:
OTHERWISE has announced a co-headline tour with Blacktop Mojo which begins on October 28 in Grand Junction, CO and wraps on November 27 in Charlotte, NC. On November 8, Mascot Records will globally release the band’s new studio album titled Defy. The record is the band’s fourth studio release of new repertoire, and first for Mascot Label Group. OTHERWISE’s Adrian Patrick shares, “”We cannot wait to throw down with the catz in Blacktop Mojo this fall. Both of our bands have new albums coming out so if you wanna see an arena-worthy rock n roll show up close & personal, grab some tickets NOW!”
A little danger makes rock music memorable. The edges cut deep and hit just as hard as any hook does, leaving a mark forever. Tapping into the spirit of rebelliousness, OTHERWISE embrace those edges on Defy. The Las Vegas quartet—Adrian Patrick [lead vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar, vocals], Tony Carboney [bass, vocals], and Brian Medeiros [drums]—push the boundaries of their signature style in terms of both songcraft and sonic experimentation alike. Most importantly, the boys hold nothing back… Continue reading Otherwise Announces Co-Headlining Tour w Blacktop Mojo→
I’ve enjoyed the music of Amaranthe for a couple of years now and was happy to see the announcement about their Fall 2015 Tour even though I had only seen them a few months ago at the Gramercy Theatre. Check out the brief press release that I received and the tour poster and then we can chat a little more about it.

Back in the Fall I had the chance to meet the guys in Lullwater when they were doing a support slot for Flyleaf and I am happy to add that after witnessing a rocking set of 100% pure grade Rock and Roll that a few beers were consumed as well. Lots of laughs, stories about their past and plans for the future. It’s pretty safe to say that if you want to a support a good group of dudes that Lullwater deserves the attention. That being said I recently got some press copy about them where they share the information about a collaboration with musician Ryan White along with their latest video. I’m sharing that piece of press with you below the logo so do kindly check it out before I return.
The Press Copy: Athens, GA — Lullwater returned to the studio in early 2015, recording the band’s follow-up to their self-titled album. As an advocate for old school recording technology while still embracing the benefits of Protools, front man John Strickland chose El Paso, TX’ Sonic to deliver an environment of seclusion and pure focus to track REVIVAL. With LULLWATER prior he chose to record at Seattle’s legendary London Bridge Studios in December, 2011 with an interest of entering the historic rooms that made a significant impact to defining the Seattle sound.
