Greetings my friends and a “Happy New Year” to you all. Welcome to 2019 and our now annual well wish for the months to come. This year I’m doing my post a little differently and have decided to use my Instagram shot from our Official Profile there instead of doing double the work on a different photo for the website posting. Also, I am using this across the board on both of my websites for some consistency and ask that if you are not yet following the Gram for PiercingMetal or PiercingKen that you click the photo and open our page to do so. I’d love to have you along with me for the many adventures that each of these websites will be embarking on and to have you look back on the stuff that has already happened and you might have somehow missed.
Artist: New Years Day Title: “Skeletons” (Single) Label: Red Music Release Date: 11/8/2018 Genre: Alternative Hard Rock Rating: 4/5
It feels like forever ago that I gave you readers an overview of the “Diary Of A Creep” EP that New Years Day had released this past February and if you didn’t see that review please click HERE to be on point with me. It was a covers album with one new song, and I did enjoy it. Fast forward to now, the band is on the road with In This Moment and Halestorm and they will be hitting New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom in a couple of weeks. As no new album is ready to dish out to fans, they’ve teased us with a brand-new single in “Skeletons” which comes at us digitally and under the Red Music banner. I launched the track on Spotify to give you some thoughts about it. Here we go. Continue reading “Skeletons” (Single) by New Years Day→
Though the summer might be in the throes of making us melt, some of the tour announcements are even hotter. Let’s take this one by Halestorm and In This Moment for instance. Check out the full press release and dates beneath the poster below.
The Press Release:
Grammy-winning hard rock band Halestorm and Atlantic/Roadrunner band In This Moment announced today a third leg of their all-female fronted tour, with New Year’s Day supporting. The new dates begin November 16thin Norfolk, VA, and run through December 16th, wrapping in St. Petersburg, FL.
“You asked for it, and now you’re gonna get it,” said Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale. “I’m so excited to announce the third leg with my empowering, beautifully Vicious women! Three tours and we don’t show any signs of slowing! We are joined by our friends in In This Moment and New Years Day starting in November! Get your tickets now because you don’t want to miss this!”
“We are so beyond excited to be announcing the third leg of such an empowering and beautiful tour,” said Maria Brink of In This Moment. “We knew after completing the first leg that this was something people were going to be paying attention to, and it felt strong, it felt powerful, and it felt liberating. I am so excited to see everybody at the upcoming shows!” Continue reading Halestorm and In This Moment Announce Additional Tour Dates→
Artist: New Years Day Title: “Diary Of A Creep” Label: Century Media Records Release Date: 2/23/2018 Genre: Alternative Hard Rock Rating: 4/5
It’s been a minute since I’ve looked into the doings and brewing’s of the band New Years Day, so I was rather excited to dig into this new EP offering called “Diary Of A Creep”. The extended play comes care of the Century Media Records label and is one brand-new original song along with five covers. Generally speaking, the idea of cover albums has grown boring for me, but I’ve opened up on them a little more of late since they are not coming out as often as they used to. There was a time a few short years ago where almost every artist was dishing out a covers album and too much just makes a unique idea stale. The new track is called “Disgust Me” and I loved the overall groove of this one and had to say that there were points when Ash reminded me of Maria Brink of In This Moment. With that band no longer on CMR, perhaps NYD will rise in the ranks to be that sort of band for their roster. Continue reading “Diary Of A Creep” by New Years Day→
