COPIA

visit COPIA on facebook visit COPIA’s website COPIA When you think of COPIA, you’re instantly brought back to that time some Australian guys showed you their band at a festival or on the side of the road. And if you haven’t yet seen them live, you’re missing out on one of the best up and coming Australian bands in the scene. EPOCH, their 2017 released album, features crushing guitar riffs, poly-rhythmic/technical percussion, intuitive bass grooves and gritty, hooking vocals – all rolled together in a modern, yet somewhat reminiscently old school method of artistic finesse – helped by studio engineers Chris Blancato and Will Putney. Sharing the stage with the likes of ‚Northlane‘ in Russia, independently booking headline tours across Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland as well as their name being on prestigious festivals such as Euroblast, MetalDays, Rockspektakel and Dong Open Air, it wasn’t long before the COPIA boys became a word of mouth hit in the European metal scene with fans in every pocket of the EU. Back in Australia, gaining experience by headlining tours through major cities, as well as playing alongside ‚Dream On, Dreamer‘, saw COPIA develop a charismatic reputation on and off stage through a combination of their own youthful energy & unique business minded approaches.

NEW BAND SVETLANAS

NEW BAND SVETLANAS

We like to announce that SVETLANAS have joined the MAD-family. SVETLANAS have often been called „The Most Dangerous Band in the World” thanks to their super intense live performances at such international festivals as Vans Warped Tour (USA), South by Southwest (USA), Punk Rock Bowling (USA), Rebellion Festival (UK) Extreme Fest (FR) and more. While maintaining a 100% DIY attitude, the band has earned praise and respect from such punk and rock heavy hitters like Gene Simmons („Their music will be listened to by 40 millions of Americans.“), Jello Biafra („Olga has quite an unusual voice, kind of like an angry cornered mongoose.“) and The Adolescents, who they partnered with on a split release titled „Hot War“. In 2015 the band teamed up with Blag Dahlia of The Dwarves for a 7″ split and an European tour that captured the attention of bass player Nick Oliveri (Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Mondo Generator, The Dwarves) who officially joined the lineup during the recording sessions in 2016. After a full month residency at the legendary Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, SVETLANAS put out their brand new album „This is Moscow Not LA“ , which was recorded at Josh Homme’s Pink Duck Studios.  ...

BILLYBIO

visit BILLYBIO on facebook visit BILLYBIO’s website  BILLYBIO Music has always been the central, unifying force in Billy Graziadei’s life. Early musical training took place on the Graziadei family’s old, forever out-of-tune upright piano. Billy’s desire to explore all forms and variations of music did not balance well with the authoritative doctrine employed by most of his music teachers. Rebelling from this rigid view of music, Billy began studying music under the guidance of his Grandfather and Uncle, both of whom he had always admired. Billy continued to study piano and expand his musical vocabulary while growing up, finding inspiration in so many forms of music but it wasn’t until he stumbled into the underground world of punk-rock music that his musical taste was really sparked into growth. While immersing himself in the sounds, perspective, and culture of the punk underground, Billy’s desire to create new, innovative music led him to the late 80’s hardcore scene in New York City. Sunday matinee hardcore shows at CBGB’s…Friday night metal shows at Brooklyn’s Lamour rock club. It was here that Billy found his musical home and it was here that Billy helped form a band that would take the metal/hard-core scene by storm….it was the birth of BIOHAZARD.

BIG D AND THE KIDS TABLE

BIG D AND THE KIDS TABLE

visit BIG D AND THE KIDS TABLE on facebook visit BIG D AND THE KIDS TABLE’s website BIG D AND THE KIDS TABLE front man David McWane has said, “There are people who want to be in a band and then there are musicians.” Once in a while a group comes along that makes music simply because they have no other choice – they are addicted musicians. For the past fifteen years Boston’s Big D And The Kids Table has proven just that, regardless of the band’s poverty. McWane describes the group as – “We’re modern American gypsies,” And you can feel that sense in their wildest record yet – For The Damned The Dumb & The Delirious. “The person who put it best is [Warped Tour founder] Kevin Lyman”, McWane explains. “A friend once asked him if we were a ‘big band’, and Kevin replied, ‘I’ll tell you this…they’ve been around for 14 years and each year they’re extremely relevant.’ “Our new record is by far our best yet,” says McWane. “It’s a bomb! Our energy writing it was incredible. As friends, we had a blast; as musician’s, we knew exactly what we wanted to craft; and as tour mates, we were all on the same page, writing songs that would make the coming tour a slaughtering battle on stage. We love energy, and that’s what we packed these explosive songs with.” For The Damned The Dumb & The Delirious is filled with driving ska-punk bangers, leaping off the stage thrash, seedy dub and topped off with a lot of that good ol’ fashion working class, Boston bar room beer toasting anthems. It’s gritty, bratty and raw – confident, witty and fun. “I personally prefer shows where you have to prove yourself,” McWane adds when asked which of the band’s thousands of live performances stick out in his head. “The Warped Tours, Reading & Leads, and the Dropkick Murphys tours that we did were exciting because you had to prove yourself. The feeling is similar to when your band first starts out; you get that first-show anxiousness,” he continues. “When you play shows where everyone loves you, then it turns more into entertaining—and that can be fun, but that’s not where I personally come from,” he elaborates. “I like the underdog shows more because they add spice and kick.” Armed with a record as youth driven, honest speaking, furious and fun as For The Damned The Dumb & The Delirious, Big D will undoubtedly get the opportunity in sweaty clubs all over the world, to step up to the plate and prove themselves all over again “We want to wake up the masses with this record, remind them that they’re more than just alive; and make their Mondays into Saturday nights. Lovers of our sound better get ready ‘cause no one’s gonna help them in the front row of this coming tour. If you wanna relax – head to the back.” – says McWane See BIG D AND THE KIDS TABLE live here:   No scheduled shows at the moment – want to book a show? Get in touch!...
