Fast Romantics
Album Afterlife Blues

For Fast Romantics, it has been four years of adventuring their way through the backcountry of Canadian indie-rock, often attempting to straddle that hazy intersection at the corner of rock n roll and pop. Now, with their second full-length album Afterlife Blues, it sounds as though they have quite conidently found their way home.
While Fast Romantics earlier work prompted comparisons to Elvis Costello and Blur, Afterlife Blues carves a bit of a different path right through the great cities of American music. From New Jersey to Detroit, and then cutting down through the heartland, they have somehow managed to combine all of these sounds without selling their distinctly Canadian souls. Singer/songwriter Matthew Angus says that working with producer Howard Redekopp for a second time meant that they could really relax and just be themselves. Once they got going, it became clear that the ten songs on the new LP would come out a lot easier than on past recordings. We did a lot of soul searching over the last few years, and now it feels like were nothing but soul, he laughs. Its funny what can happen when you go through enough shit. I was taking stock one day and it suddenly hit me that Id broken up with a lot of people and never bothered to write about it. It all flowed out from there. When asked if that means that Afterlife Blues is a breakup album, Angus says not quite. Well maybe on one level, yeah. Theres that cycle of heartache and stumbling upon love, dying and then waking back up. Im not trying to be all that clever anymore, lyrically a lot of it is dead simple. Like music from the early 60s, when you could just spill your guts, and people would thank you for it, and that would be that. Its not all heartbreak. You know, we like it loud, and I think it actually feels pretty playful and even euphoric at times. Theres a good blend of blood, guts, and bliss. Thats the sort of record we wanted to make. Such highs and lows are likely what has helped to build the high energy stage show that has attracted such a growing following. The band has played three tours, and many large festivals including Virgin Fest, SXSW, NXNE, and CMJ. They also found themselves winners of Spin Magazines Free the Noise competition that saw them flown to New York City to perform in a temporarily rebuilt CBGBs. Their music has also found its way onto many TV shows and films, including Shameless, Breaking In, Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars, and their first single, Funeral Song, has already found warm reception in the short time since its online release. The band formed in 2008 in Calgary during what Angus calls a whiskey storm. Angus and the two other founding members bassist Jeffrey Lewis and drummer Alan Reain were joined last year by two Australian ex-pats, Shane O Keeffe and Lauren Heron. Angus says the two brought exactly what we were missing at exactly the right time to the group, including what he calls those dreamy foreignsounding accents. Fans can expect a tour of Canada and the US fall 2013, and the release of Afterlife Blues on October 8, 2013.

First solo album/side project from 311 lead singer & guitarist Nick Hexum, produced and mixed by Jim Scott. The quintet includes Gary Novak, Zack Hexum, Andrs Rebelln and Luke Miller. Over the years, Nick Hexum has found a multitude of creative outlets. Aside from leading 311 to multi-platinum-success, Hexum has taken on the role of producer, working with acts such as Lenny Kravitz, Jason Mraz, No Doubt, Pepper, and Seal, and even producing the Gold-certified soundtrack for the film 50 First Dates. Now, Hexum has developed an outlet for musical expressions that deviates from the heavier Alternative Rock riffs of 311. This exciting new side project, titled The Nick Hexum Quintet allows the musician to experiment in additional genres. Sounds from laid-back rock, as well as funk, jazz and pop, unified in a jam-like ensemble. I wanted to have an outlet that had a different arrangement with saxophone and B3 and more keyboards and more Jazz tones. Theres no heavy anything on the entire album, its much more laid back, its more chill and funky and lighter than heavy, and you know, 311 does heavy great so I wanted to explore something different.

Productinfo:
THE ANSWER release with their stunning new album New Horizon the most thrillingly vital album of their career to date. This album is a statement of intent that showcases their trademark rock n roll evangelism. Produced by Little Angels front man, Toby Jepson and mixed by the renowned Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica), The Answer have seldom sounded as electrified as they do on this recording. From the bullish bluster of the opening track, itself called New Horizon and th e irresistibly catchy thud n thrust of Spectacular to the muscular grooves and blues inspired Baby Kill Me and the bold and brash call to arms of Scream A Louder Love, New Horizons 10 gleaming anthems offer a strident and skilful update of The Answers ageless manifesto. This is rock n roll as it was always meant to be; raging with confidence and belief, crackling and sparking with feral energy yet exhibiting the kind of sublime flair that separates the instantly classic from the merely mundane. The artwork was designed by the iconic and late Storm Thorgerson (Pink Floyd / Led Zeppelin/ Muse), this package promises a brighter, louder and more unstoppably triumphant future for The Answer than ever. The band will immediately hit the road in October for a 40 date headline UK and European tour to take their super-amplified live show back to their global army of devoted fans!
