Luke Bryan Launches Interactive Fan App A new mobile app will put fans closer to Luke Bryan with live streaming and interactive features. The Luke Bryan App was launched on July 24 on iTunes and Google Play. “You’re going to be able to have interactive experiences with it, find out what I am up to, find new videos, special content, even new songs,” said Bryan, who is selling out stadiums and arenas on the Kick The Dust Up tour. Costing $1.99 per month, or $22.99 per year, the app will also provide fan chats and messaging, e-commerce and a special prize experience for one lucky fan, according to the app developer, Disciple Media. Bryan joins other celebrities who have created their own apps with exclusive content for fans. 3 Doors Down Stops Show After Man Reportedly Hit A Woman 3 Doors Down member Brad Arnold just might be your hero of the week. During a concert in Colorado the singer stopped the show and had an man in the audience ejected for allegedly hitting a woman. “Hang on,” Arnold said as the band suddenly ceased during their July 14 performance at Broomfield’s 1st Bank Center. “Hey, hey, hey, homie. You don’t hit a woman. You just pushed a woman out of the way.” Arnold then asked security to “Get him the hell out of here,” resulting in cheers from the audience. Guitarist Chris Henderson later posted fan-shot video on YouTube and the band’s Facebook page, along with the notation, “Brad telling someone to not hit a woman! Just another reason I’m proud to be in this band!!”

AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Arrested Again In New Zealand The 61-year-old Australian-born drummer was arrested at his home on New Zealand’s North Island on Saturday night, though police refused to comment on the nature of the arrest, the New Zealand Herald reported. Rudd’s lawyer, Craig Tuck, confirmed in an email Sunday that Rudd had been arrested and that he was due to appear in court on Monday for a bail application. Tuck said he had just spent an hour with Rudd at the local police station, where he was being held until his court appearance. Tuck declined to say why his client had been arrested or to comment further. Rudd was sentenced to eight months of home confinement on July 9 after pleading guilty to threatening to kill a former employee and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana. In that case, Rudd acknowledged in a court summary of facts that he’d offered cash, vehicles and a house to an associate after asking him to have the victim “taken out.” He also acknowledged that he’d directly said to the victim he was going to kill him. Prosecutors had originally charged Rudd with murder-for-hire, but later dropped that charge, citing lack of evidence. At the sentencing hearing, Judge Thomas Ingram warned Rudd that he would go to prison if he breached the terms of his home detention, which banned him from taking any nonprescription drugs and subjected him to monitoring. “I stone-cold guarantee that’s where you’ll end up,” Ingram told the drummer at the hearing. “I’m not your headmaster, I’m not your father – I’m a judge.” According to the court summary of facts, the dispute between Rudd and his victim began in August when Rudd threw a party at his restaurant to celebrate the launch of his solo album, Head Job. Rudd felt the launch hadn’t gone well and subsequently fired several employees, including the

victim, whose name has been suppressed by the court. Rudd later called an associate and told him he wanted the victim “taken out,” according to the court summary. In another call, Rudd offered the associate “$200,000, a motorbike, one of his cars or a house,” which the associate took to mean as payment for carrying out his earlier request. Two hundred thousand New Zealand dollars is equivalent to about US$130,000. The morning after calling his associate, Rudd called the victim directly, saying “I’m going to come over and kill you,” according to the court. Police found marijuana and methamphetamine in several parts of Rudd’s home during a search of the house, the court summary said. They also found methamphetamine in his pocket. It’s unclear whether Rudd has a future with the Australian rock band he’s been part of on-and-off for four decades. AC/DC is currently using Welsh drummer Chris Slade for its Rock or Bust album tour, but hasn’t said whether that’s a long-term arrangement. Indictment Links 2 Rappers To Shots Into Lil Wayne’s Buses A grand jury indicted Jimmy Carlton Winfrey on 30 counts including charges of aggravated assault and racketeering. The June 25 indictment says the gunshots following Lil Wayne’s Atlanta performance on April 26 stemmed from feuding regarding the rapper’s contract with Cash Money Records, the Atlanta label co-founded by Birdman, whose real name is Bryan Williams. Lil Wayne and 11 others were traveling on the two buses struck by gunfire on Interstate 285 in Cobb County north of Atlanta, but nobody was injured. The indictment says Winfrey called “cellphones connected to Jeffrey Williams” – also known as Young Thug – before the shooting occurred and then afterward called a cellphone “owned by Bryan Williams.” Jeffrey and Bryan Williams were not charged in relation to the bus shootings. The attack on Lil Wayne’s tour buses came a few months after he filed a federal

lawsuit in New York claiming Cash Money Records owed him $8 million. The suit, which sought $51 million, was soon dropped by the rapper. Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, had been mentored by Birdman since starting his career as a teenager. The indictment says Jeffrey Williams sided with Bryan Williams in the label dispute with Lil Wayne. It says Winfrey appeared in an online video in which Jeffrey Williams made threats toward Lil Wayne. When Lil Wayne performed at an Atlanta nightclub in April, the indictment says, Atlanta police saw Winfrey pull up outside the venue in a white Chevrolet Camaro. Officers noticed that Winfrey “had an assault rifle in his vehicle,” according to the document. It says police, “fearing gang violence,” escorted Lil Wayne from the club and patrol cars stayed with his buses until they left the Atlanta city limits. Jeffrey Williams was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats in an unrelated case in neighboring DeKalb County. Police say he threatened to shoot a mall security guard in the face after being told the leave the building. Jeffrey Williams’ attorney, Brian Steel, declined to comment Thursday on his arrest in DeKalb County as well as the allegations in the bus shooting indictment. David Gilmour In North America David Gilmour returns to North America in 2016 for a quick run across the continent kicking off on the West Coast in March.

While climbing upward with each effort, the Butcher Babies are set to release “Take It Like a Man” (Century Media Records) on August 21st. With two previous EP’s (Self Titled - May 2012, Uncovered – Sept 2014), and one full length release (Goliath – July 2013) this second full-length album is already drawing vast attention and social media is blowing up with the anticipation. Already garnering the reputation of one of the hardest working bands in the business, this dual fronted band continues to bring it every single show. Butcher Babies consists of Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd (Lead Vocals), Henry Flury (Lead Guitar), Jason Klein (Bass Guitar) and Chris Warner (Drums). These five members, in rare fashion, have been together since the inception of Butcher Babies in 2010. In a musical world that seems to resemble a game of musical chairs, they have the unique ability to transcend each obstacle they have faced and conquer them as a team, best friends and family, which makes their chemistry and love for each other evident. I caught up with Carla and Jason while they were making their trek across the states and had the pleasure of spending some time with them at two of their shows while in support of my good friends, In This Moment. I'm not really sure if I would call

this an interview since we were just sitting around talking although I did pick their brains about a few of the more intriguing aspects of the Butcher Babies. First off, I wanted to find out if any of their previous projects were even comparable to this successful endeavor. Carla tells me, “This is it! This is by far the most success that anyone in this band has enjoyed. To get to this point, it takes everyone being equally motivated and that definitely sets this way ahead of anything any of us has been a part of in the past. We started this band with a vision and we all stood the ground.” In each aspect of my life I have found a multitude of influences, what or who has put that drive into you? “Wow, that's a tough one.” Carla continues, “You almost want to go with a positive, but I have to say that it has been the negative people, because you use that anger and frustration to make yourself a better person and fight. But honestly, I would have to say my father because he wasn't there in the beginning, so I had to learn to stand on my own and that helped me in everything that I do. Now, we are great friends and I love him to death, but back then it really fueled me.” Jason adds, “For me it is my father, who is kind of a hard ass. He never really supported my music, but he came and saw us on tour with Black Label Society last year and he

said that he understood now what I do. He has always been a hard worker and saw how hard we work and all I had to hear him say is good job son and that was like 30 years of I love you.” I had a tough time growing up in my household so I get it. I asked Carla to go a little deeper into how you make the music relatable to the fans. “We were definitely not unique in our situation with our parents, which is why I think our band connects so well with people. Our lyrics are very honest, our music is very honest about the way we have grown up and kids today need that voice. They don't believe in that politician or teacher. They turn to music to hear how you grew up and it helps them to relate to life.” Speaking of relating and getting your message out, what is the best part of touring? Carla explains, “Oh gosh, getting up on stage and playing a show with my best friends.” Well then, what is the most difficult part? “Being exhausted, feeling dirty and not getting showers. Jason loves a good shower after a show,”she says with a smile. Jason says, “Not getting your laundry done.” Carla Adds, “Also missing family. I'm married, Jason has a daughter, so it's really hard being away from everyone that you love, but it comes with the territory and we all knew that going into in. Our love for performing and our fans helps get us through that.” Having that much passion for what you do and with the attention to detail you all put in do you feel pressure or do nerves creep in before you get up there and bare your heart and soul to the world? “I still get a little bit nervous, but I think it helps the adrenaline start to flow. We have gotten more confident though getting up on stage,” She tells me. With such a demanding lifestyle living in the world of music I know you have had to change certain aspects of your lives to cater to the future of Butcher Babies. Carla without hesitation, “Attitude probably for both of us. Jason and I have a very special bond. We both grew up with that chip on

our shoulders. I'm saying that because we love each other and that's just how it is. We’ve had to learn how to appreciate what we do and how lucky we are. When we started this, I think we were all frowning on stage, we were very metal and upset at the world and now we are smiling. We took all the negative things in our life and turned them into a positive. You can't best success right there,” states Carla “Very well said and what we do is absolutely the best therapy too,” Jason says. As you continue to gain success and notoriety, let's face it, you have become quite visible. It has to be tough being in the public eye. Carla states, “Once again Jason and I are very similar in this. We enjoy being on stage, but we are also very shy.” Don't forget that I have seen you perform more than a couple of times and the word shy really doesn't come to mind while watching you. Jason laughs, “I know right, but it's true. We are usually the first two on the bus at night.” Carla Adds, “Once in a while I'll be a social butterfly, but for the most part we are loners. On the other hand, we love what we do and love meeting our fans, making new friends and celebrating how lucky we are.” What are you listening to these days, what's on the iPod? Carla gets excited, “Ministry, listening to a lot of ministry right now.” What about you Jason? “The last song I just listened to is UFO’s Rock Bottom.” Not what I expected from either of you, but great choices. The new album is set to release on August 21st. I ask them to tell me a little something about “Take It Like a Man.” Carla seems to have been waiting for this. “With this album we wanted to get back to our roots in thrash metal. We put a lot into it. Like we have had to for most of our lives this was no different, we had to fight to keep what we thought was the right title for the album and also the artwork was questioned, but we knew what we wanted.” Jason adds, “I think the fans are gonna be really happy with us getting back to were we came from, I know we all are.”

We are about to call it a wrap when I look at their tour bus and I can't help to think it looks a bit familiar to me. I ask Jason about their traveling apartment and he tells me, “Good eye.” He continues, “It has a lot of history attached to it. You recognize it because it was Motley Crue’s bus in the Home Sweet Home video.” Wow, can I touch it! We both get a pretty good laugh out of that. So we say our goodbyes and now that's a wrap. The Butcher Babies have released their first single “Monster’s Ball” along with an incredible video to accompany it. They have also released their second single “Never Go Back,” which if it's any indication on

things to come this album should be the powerhouse effort that takes them to that next level. With 12 powerful tracks you better get ready to “Take It Like a Man.” Coming off their European leg of the tour, they are set to hit the states in the middle of August with two very important dates for you Floridians. One being September 9th at Freebird Live in Jacksonville, FL opening for GWAR and then they make their return to Louisville, KY for the second annual Louder Than Life Festival. Both of these dates are well worth the drive. Be sure to pre-order “Take It Like a Man” on iTunes today!

Butcher Babies will be opening for GWAR at Freebird Live in Jacksonville on September 9th. Tickets are available for $20 in advance & $25 Day of Show.

After 17 years and 12 albums, this Fort Lauderdale, Florida based Alternative Metal group are showing no signs of slowing down. Nonpoint has seen just about everything there is to see. It's through their experience and focus that they have developed their signature sound and style. With a work ethic second to none and a contagious energy, they have become a fan favorite around the world. During the spring and summer seasons, you can find them on just about every major festival roster and through the remaining months of the year, you can be sure to see them at a venue near you. With Elias Soriano (Vocals), Robb Rivera (Drums), Rasheed Thomas (Guitar), BC Kochmit (Guitar) and Adam Woloszyn (Bass), they have all the pieces of the puzzle in place. This combination along with their driving sound, anthem like lyrics and in your face stage show, they will leave you wishing the show would never end. Having the pleasure of seeing them several times, I finally had the opportunity to sit down with Elias and touch upon the many points that have brought Nonpoint to the here and now. When you look back at 17 years of being involved with the same project, a lot of changes are inevitable. How has the

transition through time been? “It has been a climb,” Elias says. “It's a business now, not just fun and games. It’s setting a goal for the year and setting the business plan as opposed to taking things as they come. In the beginning, we would seize any opportunity that would come our way, but now a days it is a little easier for us to organize our cycle.” It is remarkable for anyone to stick with one thing for the duration that Nonpoint has been around. I understand this has been the only band that you have been involved with. “Yes, I'm a jump in with both feet kind of person and this has been my baby.” Influences in ones life are important. Where did you draw from that has helped get you to here? “My parents, my work ethic was instilled from them and that has been important.” Elias says. “My Dad was a welder for the county for years and a very hard worker. He went almost seven years without a sick day. Everyone knew him as Bill the welder. My Mother, same thing. She started on the line with Motorola and worked her way up to work side by side with an engineer helping to design screens and stuff like that.” With the member changes throughout the span of Nonpoint, is this the lineup you

Full Access Magazine


have been looking for? “It had reached the point where Robb and I didn't want to settle.” Elias continues, “When Andy bowed out, that was its own thing. But dealing with the other two guys and having to transition again, Robb and I looked at each other and knew we had to do it right. Robb and I have butted heads through the years, but at the end of the day we are partners; brothers. We understand the big picture goal, we can't let our egos and little quirks get in the way of that big picture. This business isn't for everyone, it takes a seasoned person who is able to disconnect and reconnect quickly and that transition is hard. You also need a supportive family. It's the game, that's why I have been with my wife for 11 years and it works, her father was a touring musician. She had that separation and had her own life. It takes its own toll. People come out of here expecting something, but it's a little bit different. So when we transitioned into the last two guys, you think about how this isn't exactly what you thought it was going to be. It's not all parties and drinking. We aren't that kind of band. We have gotten this far because of our choices. It's five man basketball, you can't be playing with four men.” The music industry has changed quite a bit over the years and you have been there to see the progression. Elias smiling, “Oh yea, it's done a 180. The focus now isn't just record sales and radio, almost like its gone backwards. You have to really work your scene and get yourself to a certain position for anyone to even notice you. Social media’s a big deal, but I see that bubble popping soon. People are faking likes and that's going to end soon. That's why people aren't paying thousands for a banner anymore, it's too easy to skip the ads and click on by.” The ups and downs happen all to often, that vicious circle. How close have you come to calling it quits? “I honestly haven't.”

He goes on to say, “I always thought there was going to be a break maybe here and there. I have always wanted to take a year off just to give the fans a break from us, but the thing is the record labels want us to put out more records, fans keep asking us to come back. When we do take a break the agents hit us up saying the promoters want to know what is going on. It's hard to pull away. We tried to do it once and everybody thought we broke up and it hurt us. Again, it's a business and you have to make all the right decisions.” When you have reached that point were you become more recognizable privacy becomes less obtainable, do you enjoy it? Elias begins to smirk, “Sometimes I wish it's timing was a little better. To reach out with a tee and a sharpie under the stall for me to sign while I'm taking care of business isn't really a good time. That's when I think man I love being famous. Looking out on all those smiling faces, that's the part I love.” Looking back on a career, there comes a moment when it hits and you take a step back and realize that you have done it. “For me that was the first time we played Europe and they already knew who we were,” He says. Following up a successful album like the self-titled Nonpoint effort Elias tells me “There wasn't a lot of pressure putting together the “The Return,” and they will be hitting the studio this February. So we get to look forward to another great Nonpoint release. I can't begin to tell you what an honor it has been sitting down with one of the most professional and driven musicians I have ever came across. If you haven't had the chance to see Nonpoint perform live now is your chance. They are currently on the road with 10 Years, Awaken the Empire and The Family Ruin. They will be in St. Petersburg performing on August 5th at the State Theatre at 7pm.

Rachele Lynae is a young up-and-coming Country Rock artist born in California, but grew up in Alaska. Full Access had a chance to sit down and talk with her about her new single and whats in store for Rachele Lynae. Rachele released her new single, "Whole Lotta Nothing" and she said, "It's going really well, we're getting more and more love. As a new artist, it always takes a little longer. I'm having more and more people in the crowd singing the song back, so it's been really exciting for me." Rachele writes her own music, but is open to record someone else's song. She states, "I'm really open to it and I have definitely listened and have been pitched a lot of songs, but I would have to really connect with it. Because the songs that I write are about my life and my friends' life and they're just really personal to me. When I hear a song from someone else, I'm kind of looking like, "Okay, would I have written that?" So most of my stuff is my own that I've written." Jamie O'Neal has been working with Rachele and she says,"Jamie is amazing, she's just ridiculously talented. When I first started working with her, I remember just being amazed by the way that she would just sing off the cuff. She's been really great as a mentor for me in all

kinds of ways. From wardrobe, to what you talk about on stage, to how you deal with interviews, to really anything and everything that it means to be a female in country music. So, I've been really blessed to have her. One of the biggest things that I've learned from Jamie early on is to always speak your opinion. Even when you're a young artist or a new artist, it's your music. So even if I'm in a room or a room with people that I greatly respect, if I disagree with them on something, then I have to speak up because this art is reflecting who I am as an artist. I've learned how to balance it, because I'm young and I'm learning all the time, so you have to know how to balance speaking your mind, always putting it out there. Always knowing this is who I am as an artist and stand up for it, but then also taking the advice and the wisdom from people that have been around longer than you and really know what they're doing." This year Rachele was really excited about participating in the CMA Music Festival. She states that you spend all year talking to fans on Twitter and Facebook, and then CMA Fest happens and you actually get to meet a lot of them. She says, "It's a great way to remember why you're doing what you're doing. They're telling stories about how this song or that song off of my

Full Access Magazine


album has affected their life personally or how they connected to it. These stories are reaching people and they're affecting their lives. It's a really positive encouragement moving forward with the rest of the year." Rachele has done several music videos and she says she enjoys them more than photoshoots. She says, "Videos are so much fun to me. I think it's because I feel very at home on a stage, so when I'm in a video, I just put myself in that same mode. I most recently did the video for "Whole Lotta Nothing" and it was the coldest and the hottest video I've ever done, because I did part of it in Nashville when it was still freezing cold and part of it in Hawaii. And it was super hot, and that was a lot of fun. It was cool to be in Hawaii and be working, so that was pretty cool. But I think my favorite video to date would still have to be my very first music video for "Party Till The Cows Come Home." It was directed by Trey Fanjoy and I got to do line dancing and help choreograph the dancing in that video. I got to swing on this mirror ball thing, it was really just crazy fun. The next day I was like, "Can I do it again?" Although Rachele's career is fairly new, we asked her what her biggest musicial accomplishment has been to date and she

said, that there are so many highlights and big accomplishments. Places you play, people you open for. I'd have to say that staying in the game and continuing to work harder and reach farther has been my greatest accomplishment." Rachele tells us that she would love to open up for Garth Brooks, "That would be a dream, he is amazing, who wouldn't want to open for him? I have this dream of doing something that's really intense with the women in country music. I think it would amazing to go on a tour that was like, a really long, great arena tour with Miranda and all the women in country music. So that would be a dream of mine,� Rachele states. Right now, Rachele is working on writing and recording. She tells us that she loves to perform and loves to be on stage. She says, "The next big thing for me is to work towards being on some major tours where I'm in arenas, opening for some really major acts. I have gotten to open for some really awesome acts, but haven't done much in arenas yet, so that will be my next step." Keep up with Rachele Lynae, follow her on Twitter and Facebook.

In the world of hard-rock, as with most other musical genres, there are countless numbers of bands and singers that try to leave an impression on today’s ever fickle fans. Most of these artists have careers shorter than 6 or 7 years before fading off into the sunset. Many failing to adapt their sounds and styles to keep up with the always changing demands of the fans. Singer/guitarist John Corabi is one very talented exception to this rule, now in his 27th year as a professional musician. Corabi had been a member of big-name bands such as Motley Crue, RATT and The Scream during his career that started in 1988; John is now the lead singer for the metal band The Dead Daisies. The Dead Daisies are currently touring with Whitesnake, appearing locally on August 3rd at Hard Rock Live in Orlando and on August 6th at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, while featuring songs from their just-released album, Revolucion, John’s first since joining the band this past February. Corabi took time from his busy schedule to talk about all things music with Full Access Magazine. “Right now I’m in Las Vegas, I’m doing The Dead Daisies thing, but I also have my own solo band, so I’ve been doing a lot of

17

shows, I have no idea how, but I’m doing it. The only tedious part is making sure that both of my managers talk and keep an open line of communication, I really don’t have any issues; I’ve been out on the road for about 5 or 6 months now,” John explained. “I’ve been doing that Motley Crue record that I did (as a band member) in its entirety. I’ve had all these shows booked for a bit and just got home from touring with KISS. Then I go back out on the road with The Dead Daisies and Whitesnake. Right now, we’re doing our summer run with Whitesnake, then to Australia with KISS and the KISS cruise. Then more Whitesnake in Europe…pretty busy til the end of the year. This August will be one year since I got married and I think I’ve been home probably a total of 2 ½ months.” Over most of his career, Corabi had spent time as part of 11 different bands prior to joining The Dead Daisies earlier this year. He currently spends time touring with The Dead Daisies as well as with his own band as a soloist; John released his only solo album in 2012, John Corabi Unplugged. John talks of his first few days with The Dead Daisies and his first shows as a member of the band. “Daisies’ bass guitarist Marco Mendoza

gave me a call. They had previous singers that apparently didn’t work out. They called me up and honestly I had never heard of them. I went online and checked out their tunes and thought ‘wow, these guys are pretty cool, I dig their vibe and like their music…’ At that point, they asked me to do a few shows with them. The show in Cuba, I guess was kinda like my audition with them. As soon as we finished the Cuba show they asked me to go to Australia and cut a record with them. I just moved a few of my gigs around and we went and did a record. After we got done and listened to the thing, I was pretty impressed at the fact that we went to Sydney and wrote, recorded, mixed and mastered 17 songs in 30 days… it was pretty impressive and I love this record. I think we did a great job,” Corabi said. “I enjoy hanging with the guys, I think they’re a lot of fun and there’s so much talent there it’s ridiculous. Everything has happened so quickly, I’ve only been with the band since February and we’ve already played in Cuba, we went to Australia and wrote and recorded the record. We just did five weeks in Europe with KISS.” In the early 2000’s, John was a member of metal band RATT. One particular night while doing a show with Warrant, Dokken and Firehouse, John suffered a panic attack while noticing the rather small crowd in attendance. “I had a panic attack…my thinking was ten years ago, any one of these bands would have sold out by themselves in a heartbeat. Now we’ve got all these bands together and it was like nobody cared,” Corabi recalled. “That made me reflect and wonder if I was ever gonna be relevant again. It was weird and it took me a while to get out of that…I had to not worry about fads and just have to do what I do.” The one thing that Corabi has enjoyed doing during his long career the most is

to play his music. Over the years, he has had a hand in the making and/or recording of 20 albums. John has admitted that he feels somewhat humbled by the fact that he has remained relevant within the music world over all these years. He talks of touring and playing during his long career, although some days are much more hectic and demanding than others. “It varies, even with my band, there are some shows that we do that do where we just get on a plane and go. It doesn’t matter to me. I just love being busy…I like playing and doing my things,” John explained. “I really do enjoy it and at the end of the day, there was a period there, a while ago, after I did Motley Crue, that for a year or two it was difficult getting gigs. Now, I just enjoy the fact that my phone is still ringing, there’s still people that want to talk to me.

Awaken The Empire Just released their first full-length album “Aurora” (Another Century). The band consists of Damien Lawson (Vocals/Guitar), Shivan Somarantne (Guitar), Romina Fronti (Bass) and Daryl Falconer (Drums). Based out of Seattle, they are currently on a cross country tour in support of 10 Years and Nonpoint. They will log some miles on the road, but the road from 2009 to now has been a journey nobody could have expected. They stop to grab a bite to eat only to find that their van filled with equipment, clothes and memories had been stolen. Then they dealt with the loss of a beloved mother and the birth of a child. They have lived a lifetime in a matter of months. With things settling down, they finally had the opportunity to focus on their livelihood and their passion for music. Instead of calling it quits while going through so many intense moments, they came back stronger than ever with an arsenal of new material born from those life experiences. Hence, the launch of “Aurora.” I tracked Los Angeles born vocalist Damien Lawson down, so I could pick the brain of the man whom Andy Biersack from Black Veil Brides had been raving about on Twitter. With landing your first record deal, a transitional period that usually proves tougher than most think is inevitable. “For us, it's been interesting,” Damien says. “In the beginning

we had an investor and kind of out grew that, then we signed with Another Century and having the team behind us and helping facilitate things is huge. There is power that comes with having a label. They have been really accepting of us and our ideas. They love everything that we love about this band, so the transition period has been rather easy.” I asked Damien to comparing ATE to past projects he has been involved with and this is what he said, “The previous bands I had played with, I joined because I had a friend in there. This is the first band I had been in, where we had actual auditions to find the other members.” Finding the right chemistry and a group of other musicians who are willing to share the same vision always proves difficult. Tell me about the process for Awaken. “This one started out with me by myself. I put out some tracks and it had received a positive response. So the next step was to put together a band. Romina was the next one to join and from there, it was real up and down. We would find the right person, then they weren't the right one. So we kept on and eventually we had a lineup.” Is that the lineup we see today? “Oh hell no.” He says laughing. “The biggest thing was to find people who were going to be fully dedicated to the cause, so we went through more than a few pieces to the puzzle.”

Sacrifice is a big part of getting your project to fruition. Talk about what you had done in the beginning for the good of Awaken The Empire. Damien says, “We knew that if we were gonna do this, that we were going to be up against signed bands who have a ton of money. I was couch surfing and didn't have a place for a long time. I sold my car to get us on tour. Daryl was living in the studio. We were so adamant about the all-in attitude. Knowing we had to avoid that mini ego. Nothing gets handed to you.” I always need to find out a musicians influences and from what I understand we share one in Kurt Cobain. “For sure!” Lawson says. “My older brother, who would listen to Nirvana, got me into them. I listened to the Bleach stuff and loving it, but then I heard Breed off Nevermind at a friends house. They put it on at the highest volume level I have ever heard and I remember my entire life changing when that song came on. I remember reading interviews with him and there was so much integrity and he was such a different person as an artist with endless artistic impression, that it just carried with me.” Relationships are made along the way. I understand you have a friend and fan in Andy Biersack lead vocalist from Black Veil Brides. “Andy has reached out a few times, at the weirdest times. He has been really amazing; really supportive. He posted about our song called “The Awakening” really loving it. That's was unexpected, I hadn’t talked to him at that point. When the van was stolen, he contacted me personally and gave me some words of encouragement telling me that it's going to be ok and not to worry if we needed to cancel a few shows. Another band we are good friends with is New Years Day and I understand you will be interviewing them also.” I guess word travels fast. I will be catching up with them on the Van’s Warped tour. “Like us, they had gone through multiple member changes and have that never say die attitude.” With all the adversity during your mission, there had to be a point where it seemed like

enough is enough, I'm done. “A few times.” he says. “There had been a whole lot of life punching me in the face. Even then, I knew that I couldn't throw in the towel even though it had been a serious thought.” I have picked up on your passion and it is evident that it shows up in your writing. “The band is my outlet. All the songs on the album are directly from life events.” Damien continues, “I don't write with anyone else. It is one of those things that I refuse to do because I need the lyrics to be a direct extension of my emotions. I only care about conveying a message that is coming right from me. Fans can detect insincerity. When you see a band live, you can tell if the singer believes in what they are singing about.” Beyond the lyrics, I put down a general layout of a song. Besides vocals and guitar, I also play drums and keys. Then I take it to the band and they put their touch on the song. We strip it back and rebuild it. There is no better feeling than seeing the fans connect to something that comes from your heart.” Everyone has that one band they would like to tour with. Who is that for you? “Smashing Pumpkins,” he says without hesitation. That would be great. Also Korn would be amazing, even though they are a little bit heavier than we are.” There are always two sides to touring, the good and the bad. “The good is the sense of adventure. You never know what you are going to encounter in the next hour. I really love traveling. The worst part has to be doing the water bottle in the parking lot as a shower.” he says laughing. Having the opportunity to sit down and have a chat with someone who believes that integrity is everything has been amazing. A musician with a purpose entailing the betterment of the world through music. It is moments like these that make me truly glad I have the forum to help spread the word to the world about an amazing up-andcoming band heading your way. Awaken The Empire is a must see.

Awaken The Empire will be performing at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg on August 5th, opening for Nonpoint & 10 Years. Full Access Magazine

Suzanne Kraft Talk From Home Melody As Truth 333d2 by Terry Canter

In 2011, an L.A. producer blipped into view thanks to a well-received debut EP on Gerd Janson's Running Back imprint. Credited to Suzanne Kraft, an alias of dublab DJ Diego Herrera, Green Flash did nu-disco infused with a low-slung pacing and a warmth not unlike a cassette tape left on the dashboard at midday. It was soon followed by the Horoscope EP and a handful of more Balearic cuts from Herrera's other band, Pharaohs, suggesting that more floor-filling tracks lay ahead. But when Missum, Kraft's next release for Running Back, came out last year, it showed Herrera not leaning in but rather taking a step back. The record was actually a reissue, but it showed a different side of him: The drums turned down to register as gentle pulses, samples of old boogie records gave way to chord organs and saxophone lines that mimicked deep breathing exercises, unfurling slowly and deeply across each track. Missum revealed the mellow, contemplative side of Suzanne Kraft, which in comparison to the DJ tracks, might have sounded anomalous. With Talk From Home, it instead illuminates that the unhurried pacing of those first dance singles might be the outliers. Released on the Melody As Truth imprint out of the UK, Talk From Home isn't an homage to new age music per se, but it does take cues from the more chilled-out end of the ECM and EG catalogs. "Two Chord Wake", with its brushed hi-hat programming and measured snares, might have the most pronounced beat of the album, yet even with flares of guitar spiking above the rhythms, it pads about gently like music for children’s television. 21

"Never Heated" might be carved out of Julee Cruise’s exhales, a wordless vocal paired with a simple figure on bass guitar and a tube amp buzzing like cicadas. Throughout, Kraft gets the most out of the simplest of ingredients, "Male Intuition" imparting its contemplative vibe with little more than a guitar line couched in reverb and echo that brings to mind Durutti Column. Other moments of the album sound like something Mark Isham might have cut around the time of Vapor Drawings, just at the border between breezy and cheesy. The pads of the title track at first bring to mind a Muzak version of "King of Pain" but as the track evolves, a bath-warm depth is revealed. The beatific slow swells of closer "The Result" brings this all too-brief outing to a close, but Talk From Home is the ideal soundtrack for taking a leisurely stroll rather than frantically Ubering to reach a destination. Peacers Peacers Drag City ggdff by Terry Canter

As the leader of San Francisco noise rock band Sic Alps, Mike Donovan was an advocate for madness in an increasingly well-behaved city. But by the time the singer dissolved the group in 2013—following four full-lengths and a number of singles—it seemed like he, too, needed a breather. Not long after Sic Alps called it quits, he released a solo record, Wot, under his own name. On Wot, Donovan took a break from skronk and hiss, focusing instead on acoustic guitar-driven sounds inspired by '60s folk and country music. The production values were more traditional and the subject matter slightly more earthly and universal. It was a relaxed and pretty set of songs, which may have been to its disadvantage. If you were drawn to Alps' for the topsy-turvy sounds, Wot might have come off a bit staid.

Full Access Magazine


In this sense, Peacers' self-titled LP is a course correction. Ostensibly a band, Peacers was recorded by Donovan and long-time collaborator and former San Francisco cohort, Ty Segall, who produced the album and performed on a number of the songs. It's not exactly Sic Alps Mk. II, but there are some clear similarities. The record's eerie psychedelic pop strikes a similar balance of order and chaos, with songs that rev up only to be subverted by detours into dissonance and static. The music is often wobbly and disjointed, with tracks like "Mary Jane/Glorious Sunrise" and "Drama Ensues" congealing into a groove only to vaporize with little resolution. The musical reference points have shifted away from Bob Dylan and back toward Syd Barrett and Tronics. As a singer, Donovan has exited his folkie phase and returned to his old self—tuneful, but disturbed, like a zombie Marc Bolan. And the bad vibes abound. Bitterness was a key component of Sic Alps. Living in a rapidly gentrifying San Francisco, Donovan and his bandmates sounded like defiant weirdo survivors, fending off a rising tide of dotcom normies. As their hometown buffed up, they staked a claim in the psychedelic fringe, willful outsiders keeping the candle lit for the city's storied '60s subculture. The band's final EP came with the epigraph, "Digger gold vs. Google dorm. Real SF will rise again." Peacers feels like a continuation of that attitude, though apart from one or two moments—closing cut "Super Francisco"— it's rare that the message is clearly stated. Rather, it's implied in the disquieting and rubbery nature of the music. Donovan's songs plot out a course toward a grimmer, grimier, and freakier world. And depending

on your perspective, that may be an attractive destination. Miguel Wildheart Bystorm/RCA Records ggggf by Terry Canter

With "Adorn," 2012's sexiest slow jam, Miguel has emerged as a mohawkpompadoured futurist, as rooted in past innovators like Marvin Gaye as in 21stcentury production — a soul man with no "neo-" required. Wildheart is an even bolder move: an intoxicating master class in electro-porn R&B — the coin of the modern genre — that's also a soulsearching critique of same. It's a necessary record that should generate plenty of thought, and more than a few babies, too. What does it mean when Miguel croons about wanting to "fuck you like I hate you" in "The Valley," a psychedelic groove trip whose title is both sexual metaphor and explicit nod to the adult-film-biz capital of Southern California? Repellent yet inescapably hot, the song questions the ways the porn industry has warped modern sexuality. "Coffee" is a playful breakfast-in-bed tune; the f-bombing single version is cleaned up here and notably sexier for it, a musical "show, don't tell" demonstration. The most emotionally explicit moment comes in "What's Normal Anyway," a misfit prom anthem for anyone interrogating his or her own identity ("Too black for the Mexicans/Too square to be a hood nigga"). Not every song goes so deep, and Miguel might be accused of wanting to have his cake here and eat it too. Well, who doesn't?
