Madonna Postpones First Five Dates of Rebel Heart Tour Madonna has postponed the first five dates of her Rebel Heart tour. The tour was scheduled to kick off on August 29th in Miami, but she will now begin her international trek on September 9th in Montreal. Along with two nights in Miami (August 29th and 30th), the pop star also moved dates in Atlanta (September 2nd) and San Juan, Puerto Rico (September 5th and 6th) to January 2016. "As my fans already know, the show has to be perfect," Madonna said in a statement. "Assembling all the elements will require more time than we realized. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause my fans. I can promise you this show will be worth the wait. Can't wait to share it with all my Rebel Hearts out there." Madonna released her latest album Rebel Heart and announced the tour in March. Since then, she's made a number of highprofile live appearances, including the Brit Awards, where she quickly recovered from a nasty mid-performance fall, and the IHeartRadio Music Awards. At the latter, Taylor Swift played guitar as the pop vet sang her latest Rebel Heart single "Ghosttown." Her most-talked about performance, however, was at Coachella, where she joined Drake onstage. As Drake sang the If You're Reading This It's Too Late cut "Madonna" during the festival's headlining set, the titular inspiration joined him to perform a medley of her own songs and give the rapper-singer a passionate kiss. Iron Maiden Singer Given 'All Clear' Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson, who has been battling tongue cancer since February, is now reporting that his doctors have reviewed a recent MRI scan and given him the "all clear." "I would like to thank the fantastic medical team who have

been treating me for the last few months, resulting in this amazing outcome," the vocalist wrote on the band's website. In his statement, the singer thanked his family, saying he felt the ordeal had been harder on them than him in his opinion. "I'd also like to send a heartfelt thanks to all our fans for their kind words and thoughts," Dickinson wrote. "I'm a firm believer in trying to maintain a positive attitude, and the encouragement from the global Maiden family meant a great deal to me. Right now, I'm feeling extremely motivated and can't wait to get back to business as usual, as soon as I can!" The band's manager, Rod Smallwood, also released a statement to express how excited he was about Dickinson's prognosis and to manage fans' expectations about the group's immediate future. "Although Bruce is naturally eager to resume Maiden activities, it will take a while before he is completely back to full strength, as we explained previously," he wrote. "Because of this, the band will not be touring or playing any shows until next year. We know our fans will understand the situation and, like us, would prefer to wait until Bruce is back to his usual indefatigable levels of fitness before going out on the road." The manager explained that currently, the band will be focusing on putting the finishing touches on a new studio album, which, he said, will come out this year. "I'd like to echo Bruce's words and thank all Maiden fans," Smallwood wrote. "You have been incredibly patient, putting Bruce's health and well-being first during this difficult time and the band and I appreciate all your positive support." Last year, Dickinson made headlines for his aviation-related pursuits outside of the

band. He invested a reported $450,000 into the "world's longest aircraft," the Hybrid Air Vehicle. And he reenacted a World War I dogfight in the air over an English heavy-metal festival. Cockpit video of his daredevilry is available here. Phil Collins Readies Deluxe Reissues of Solo Catalog Phil Collins' eight solo albums, along with other recordings from the prolific musician's vault, will be remastered and reissued as part of a new catalog deal with Warner Music Group. The forthcoming campaign will begin this fall with deluxe edition releases of Collins' 1981 solo debut, Face Value, and 1993 effort, Both Sides. Warner did not provide a complete schedule for the campaign, nor offer any details on what material outside of Collins' studio LPs would be released. Since 1981, Collins has sold approximately 100 million solo albums, releasing his most recent, Going Back — a collection of Motown and soul covers — in 2010; his last album of original material was 2002's Testify. The musician's monumental career also includes a significant amount of soundtrack work, plus numerous albums with arena rock forebears Genesis. Collins, however, has eked closer towards a full retirement in recent years. The singer was set to perform what would have been his first gig in four years at a fundraising gala at the Fillmore in Miami last December, but had to cancel after falling ill. Prior to that, Collins had only taken the stage for a handful of shows in support of Going Back and during a brief Genesis reunion tour in 2007. In 2012, Collins told Rolling Stone it was unlikely that he would ever embark on a full tour or record another album again. While he noted that he'd "earned the right to actually do nothing," Collins did leave room for making music on his own terms: "At some point I may go down to my studio in the basement and muck about some. I've got a couple of things that I think are great, but I don't want to get caught up in that rock and roll promotion thing."

Gloriana Ready First New Album in Three Years Country trio Gloriana have announced their aptly-titled third studio album, Three, to be released on June 2nd. Produced by Matt Serletic (Matchbox 20, Collective Soul), it's the band's first album since 2012's A Thousand Miles Left Behind. "We can't wait for you guys to hear this," said the group's Rachael Reinert on their official YouTube page. "We know it's been a really, really long time coming and I think it's our best body of work so far. . . Super excited to finally get it out to y'all." The album's first single, "Trouble," is currently rising in the Top 25 of Billboard's Country Airplay chart. Co-written by Reinert and the band's Mike Gossin, along with Jon Nite and Ross Copperman, the sassy track mixes country imagery and instrumentation with a grooving, danceable beat. Twelve tracks in total, Three also features songs from Nashville A-listers like Eric Paslay, Will Hoge, Josh Kear and Danny Myrick. In choosing the title Three, the band, which also includes Tom Gossin, seems to be hinting at multiple layers of deeper meaning. It's the group's third studio album, it's been three years since their last full-length release, and the group famously shrunk to three members when vocalist and mandolin player Cheyenne Kimball abruptly quit the band in 2011. Gloriana scored their first hit in 2009 with "Wild at Heart," and in 2012 landed a platinum-selling Top 10 smash with "(Kissed You) Good Night." The band will play Colusa, California, on Friday as part of their summer tour.

The mere definition of ‘train’ (a selfpropelled connected group of rolling stock) might not exactly conjure up the image of American pop band, TRAIN, but delve a little deeper and it suits them to a tee. Maybe even add a bit of creativity and substitute ‘rock’ for ‘stock’ (for those less than convinced) and there you have it! You may best recognize the band Train from their hit song “Drops of Jupiter,” which not only catapulted the band into pop stardom in 2001 but earned them a Grammy for “Rock Song of the Year.” If not, then perhaps their Top 20 Billboard inventory, such as “Meet Virginia,” “Calling All Angels,” “Hey Soul Sister,” and “Drive By” will do the trick. Regardless, this hard-working group with unwavering faith and determination, has managed to propel themselves forward throughout the years while keeping their sometimes shaky hands firmly on the rails - a task few other bands with similar struggles have been able to achieve. Train, which originally began in San Francisco as a quintet in the 1990s that eventually trickled down to three, has now become seven members strong with the official addition of some talented musicians, all of whom have worked with Train in some fashion for many years. The newly formed unit consisting of Pat

Monahan (lead vocalist), Jimmy Stafford (lead guitarist), Jerry Becker (guitarist/ keyboardist), Hector Maldonado (bassist), Drew Shoals (drummer), and Sakai Smith and Nikita Houston (background vocalists), have just begun their 2 month long Picasso At The Wheel Summer Tour in support of their seventh studio LP Bulletproof Picasso. But as founding members Pat Monahan and Jimmy Stafford would readily agree, the 20 years that have gotten them here have seen them both on and off the right track. Full Access got a chance to speak with lead singer, Monahan, about the challenges and surprises that have come with the band’s ever-changing dynamics. “The biggest challenge for me is debating, every time there is a shift in the band, whether Train should exist or not. The only way to find out is if you let the shift happen and then you wait it out and see what people want because going away is really the only alternative. You can’t push it.” By the opposite token, he adds, “I’m always pleasantly surprised too. After 20 years, it’s different than when you start because when you start it’s almost like family. It’s like who’s willing to make absolutely no money and maybe this is a huge waste of all our time. Then you gather those people that have nothing to lose with you and you

hope it works. When it works, the people you add to your life, as those shifts happen, are like friends. You’re like ‘You’re really talented but I also love spending time with you.’ I’m also pleasantly surprised when Train fans that have fallen in love with someone who might not be there anymore, fall in love with the new person just like we have because they’re really special people.” Monahan, who is the primary songwriter for the band, admitted to just recently considering himself a true artist, rather than a musician - two terms he feels are distinguished by ‘time.’ He explains, “I never really considered myself an artist until this album. I’ve always just considered myself an entertainer. Bulletproof Picasso was really tough to write in the same way Save Me, San Francisco was. I wrote for years to try to come up with something that was interesting but also maybe something people could get behind. Bulletproof Picasso was like going through another layer of the earth. It was just a new layer to have to break through for growth.” However, he cites the track “Give It All” as not only the easiest song to write off the latest album, but also his favorite to perform live. “I wrote that song in a half an hour and I sang it one time and it was done. Now I’m so excited to write the next record! I can’t even wait! I’ll be writing on the road the whole time.” Asked why he writes songs, he says “Because it’s the only part of my life that I can go to work with nothing and out of thin air, there’s ‘something’ that maybe people will care about.” Besides enjoying a current upswing in their musical careers, Train have plenty of other projects to be excited about as well. In 2012, the band launched the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co., an idea developed by Stafford out of his love for wine and the way the band frequently connected with their fans through wine and music. Portions of their proceeds are proudly donated to Family House, Inc., a non-profit organization providing temporary housing to families of seriously ill children in the San Francisco area. Through the success of their wine company, currently offering six varietals online, in liquor stores, and in

stores such as Publix Supermarkets, the band have added Save Me, San Francisco Ghirardelli Chocolates to the mix. These proceeds, 100% of which, also support Family House, Inc. Both Monahan and Stafford agree that is feels great to be able to give back to the city where it all began for them. Also keeping Monahan busy is his very own podcast called Patcast, in which he interviews fellow musicians, comedians, sports figures, and even Train fans. Closing in on his 100th podcast, he says, “I love doing the Patcast because it gives me a chance to become friends with people I’m a fan of.” Trust me when I say that these podcasts are very entertaining! Monahan has a unique gift of asking both poignant and ridiculous questions with a comedic flair. So, with all these side projects keeping him busy, I was curious to know what he would do if he weren’t in a band or connected to such endeavors. He replied, “I’d want to feed people. I’d want to open a little restaurant and just keep it real modest and mellow.” For now, however, fans can delight that Monahan, along with his bandmates, aren’t going anywhere and are just as excited to tour the U.S. as fans are to buy the tickets to see them. They plan to try out a few new things on this tour as well. Monahan reveals, “We’ll try to get Matt and The Fray up there with us at least once during the show. We’re going to work on a few different cover songs that we’ve never played before, hoping that they will work. We want to take Twitter requests from people the day of the show or maybe even from the stage and we’ll play it right at that moment.” He laughs, “We’ve never done anything like that before so it may or may not work.” Of course, tried and true Train songs, both old and new, are always the mainstay. Monahan reflectively expresses, “You can never really beat performing ‘Drops of Jupiter.’ It just always reminds me of why that song was written (a sentiment to his mother) and I just REALLY love it! But the whole set is really fun!” Having recently returned from

their very successful European Tour, he alludes that the set is very similar and recalls one night where “we played ‘Mississippi’ in an outdoor venue and the moon was out. It was really beautiful!” In addition to touring and writing for their next album, Train will be putting out their very first collection of Christmas songs. Following a question I asked about a song he’d like to perform that he thinks would have the greatest impact on the world today, Monahan reveals, “We are making a Christmas record and at the last minute we decided to do John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas: War Is Over.” I’ve never written a song like that yet so I think the song I would want to perform is about to be written.” For a band originally from California who has surely had its fair share of obstacles, Train has refused to derail and has instead pushed their way across the Mississippi and overseas to sell millions of records world-wide. Monahan and Stafford would attribute this, no doubt, to solid friendships,

respect, and a deep-seeded desire to reach people in a positive way through music. Monahan honestly feels that “without music, I would be lonely. Music is the backdrop for the story of your life. Train fans make me want to do this forever.”

Train will be performing along with The Fray and Matt Nathanson at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, FL on June 6th

Zedd is no stranger to hit singles, with two of them, “Clarity” and “Stay the Night,” coming in the last two years. Now, the Kaiserslautern, Germany, native, born Anton Zaslavski, just released his new album, True Colors, which is likely to yield even more Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles and make him the household name he deserves to be when it comes to pop-star producers of electronic music. The album was released on May 18. Full Access Magazine sat with Zedd and discussed everything from synesthesia to George Benson’s jazzy 1980-released single “Give Me the Night.” Zedd's True Colors Tour starts Sept. 6 in Seattle. What would you say are the key sonic influences, genre-wise on your new album, True Colors? This album is very classical, and there’s some rock influences, rap influences, and “True Colors,” the song is almost tribal. I actually think it’s important for artists in electronic music to try to push the barriers of creating music that’s of a genre that everyone can appreciate. From Selena Gomez on current single “I Want You to Know” to Foxes for “Clarity,” you’ve worked with a crosssection of “known” and “unknown” vocalists.” Is there a difference between

the two, and what quality draws you to someone’s vocal performances? A vocalist can make or break a song. Even if a vocalist sings the same top line and the same lyrics, it’s the colors that you see and feel when you hear their voice that’s most important. I love voices where when you hear them, you know immediately who it is. [For instance], Ellie Goulding is the most extreme example of that. Her voice is an instrument. It really is. It has a lot of air, and when you think of things like air, you’re thinking of colors and things like that, too. So for me, the right vocalist is absolutely crucial to create the right emotion for the song. I think that whether an artist is known or not known doesn’t affect how the song feels to someone. It’s much more what the voice sounds like. For example, when you take a song like “Clarity,” nobody had ever really heard of Foxes before. Of course, it’s awesome when you can find someone like Hayley Williams [vocalist on “Stay the Night”] that has a huge rock fanbase that’s suddenly like, “you know what, I should like electronic music because I never liked it before, and thanks for introducing me.” Of course, that’s amazing because this dance movement is a pop culture movement, and I want everyone in the world to know my music, which is why I

Full Access Magazine


make it. I also want to change something with what I do, but I would never do it if the voice didn’t fit. On “Clarity,” I had several other singers sing it too, and some of them were pretty big, but I decided to go with the voice that really means something to me, which was Foxes. I think the song actually got much bigger with Foxes than it could’ve gotten with a bigger-name vocalist. What are your goals you’re attempting to achieve in your creative process? Well, I’ve always had the approach to push electronic music to be more musical. Coming from a musical background, you will find that a lot of [electronic music] isn’t [musical]. The more people that make music not-so musical, the more people accept that and think that’s how it should be. That’s going to make it really tough to turn it back. Looking back to Queen, the Beatles, King Crimson, Genesis, and all of those great bands, they were able to speak to huge masses of people with fairly complex music. The amount of depth you can put into music and still make people understand it is getting very low and you can overload people’s minds very quickly with very little. So, I’m trying to push that back and bring back musicians that can speak in wider terms. I think people can understand it without having to make some kind of crazy “math rock electro.” You have to speak the fans’ language, and there’s ways to push that musically. So many of your bigger hits are defined by piano-driven melodies. What has drawn you to the instrument? When you write the chords of a song in a computer, you can either let a synth play it or a piano play it. That’s how it’s typically done, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The way I use it, I use the piano as an actual instrument. I write on it, and then I turn it into a synth. I don’t do it the other way around. The result is that the chord

progressions are more unique and the music feels more musical. I hate hearing a drum fill that’s impossible to actually play. It feels wrong. It’s the same when I hear chords that a human being can’t play. I’ll hear something that’s 11-tonal and that’s something you can’t do with 10 fingers. By writing music on an instrument, you’ll make the music feel much more organic. True Colors album track “Transmission” features Logic and X Ambassadors. I believe this is the first time you’ve worked with a rapper on a track. What was that process like, and what drew you to Logic? I heard Kendrick Lamar the first time I heard rap and realized that rap could be really musical. He’s brilliant. That’s what made me want to work with a rapper, and then I found Logic, and I was like, “he’s so good, he’s so talented.” He’s also such a nice guy. I’d never worked with a rap artist before, so when we recorded, I asked him if I could ask him to re-record something or change the lyrics and Logic’s like, “Dude, I’ll do whatever it takes to make this awesome.” That was really refreshing for me. Working with X Ambassadors, who are alternative rockers, that was an amazing way to bring three cultures into one. There’s a lot of pieces, but I think “Transmission” proves that there doesn’t have to be a barrier between genres and something fresh can be made. I don’t know of any other song that sounds quite like it. Who are five artists, alive or dead, that you’d advise someone who’s never listened to your music before to listen to in order to get an idea of what to expect? Silverchair. You know, the band? Yeah, Daniel Johns is the lead singer, and he’s one of the most influential people in my life musically, and I would love for him to listen to True Colors. Jeff Buckley, Freddie Mercury, George Benson...

Zedd’s True Colors Tour will be at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, on October 17th at 7:30 pm. This is an 18 and older show. Tickets range from $30.25 - $52.75 in advance or $32.75 - $57.75 Day of Show. Full Access Magazine

Having a background in music, stemming from a love of percussion, has been led by many influences. Sitting behind the kit as a younger version of myself, one of the drummers I looked up to was Carl Palmer. When he plays, it is more than music, it is a show within a show. Not many people can say they have had the opportunity to sit down and have a one-onone with a public figure that has had such a big hand in shaping their life. So I feel like one of the luckiest journalist on the face of the planet. With a career spanning half of a century, I not only congratulated Mr. Palmer, but I thanked him for sharing his gift with the world. “Oh thank you, thank you very much. Wouldn't it be great to get another 50 years out of it?” he says with his debonair English accent. Through his remarkable journey he has been involved with many charities and is currently amid his “Rhythm of Light 2015 Tour.” This tour is not only celebrating his 50 year anniversary as a professional musician, but he has joined forces with Scene Four Art Studios out of California, who are responsible for his fine art collection. I asked Carl what to expect during this tour. He stated, “I just completed the European leg of the tour. At the end of June, we will be playing six shows in the U.S. which will include three in Florida. I have always

11

by Scotti Moore

enjoyed the Sunshine State, so we will be in Englewood, Orlando and Largo. At each of the shows fans will have the chance to not only see, but purchase art from my personal collections, The Rhythm of Light (2014) and A Twist of the Wrist (2013). The money collected from the art sales will go to local charities.” I remember the Emerson, Lake and Palmer hits very well, so I ask him how this version has been accepted up to this point. “I have been very happy to see all the people that still love the music and my group The ELP Legacy Show. We will be returning to the states in November for a series of shows, then off to South America as well. With this Legacy project I didn't want to attempt to replace Greg Lake’s vocals and I wanted to put a bit of modern twist to it, so I replaced the keyboard with electric guitar and it’s accompanied by a spectacular video production. This combination makes for a great instrumental presentation.” Talking with Mr. Palmer has me very intrigued about the art aspect, so I want to get into that a little more. He explains, “I actually came up with this idea back in 1973, but we didn't have the technology back then. So I had to tape lights to the sticks in order to capture images of the motion and constantly had to replace the lights as they would break. With the advancement of technology today, I set up

a kit in a room with two cameras and different colored glow sticks and you can beat the shit out of the drums without the lights going out. So that's what we will be doing in June and again in November with the great people at Scene Four.” Knowing how much he enjoys working with children and young adults, I wanted to find out more about the different types of charities he will be partnering with already knowing he has done tremendous work with young kids affected by cancer. “Yes, cancer has touched just about everyone, but I also like to get involved with charities that supply legal advice and representation for youths that need help in getting that second chance in life, children’s heart foundations and the Humane Society touch me as well. It varies from town to town. Each one has different charities, so I research that in advance and establish the connections.” Now that we have the lowdown with the tour, I am wanting to talk a bit about his career. Most people would be happy with a solid 50 years out of life, so I'm wondering what the progression has been like over a 50 year career. “Well at the age of 15, I joined Chris Farlowe & The Thunderbirds. We hit the top of the UK charts with a song written by a couple of guys you maybe heard of named Jagger and Richards of The Rolling Stones, called “Out of Time.” In 1968, I was in Arthur Brown and enjoyed a number 1 hit by the name of “Fire” (“I Am the God of Hellfire…”). That same year, I formed a popular underground band called Atomic Rooster, which was a very big progressive group in Europe. Then in 1970, ELP came along which obviously was a very big part of my life. In the 80’s I had enjoyed success with Asia, then back to ELP in the 90’s. Not only am I currently touring with Palmer’s ELP Legacy Show, but I am still a member of Asia as well. So I would have to say the progression as been quite successful, fulfilling and very rewarding.”

I remember standing backstage at an Asia concert and watching Carl throw a stick in the air about 25 feet a couple of times and catching it with ease behind his back without missing a beat and thinking to myself, he is the whole package. After telling him about that he said laughing, “You must have caught me on a good day. I drop sticks all the time. As far as that goes, I believe that people need to be entertained. There needs to be a certain amount of eye candy within music. ELP was one of the very first bands to have a large production on stage with the videos and Keith used to jump over his keyboards. These types of things are important to enhance the music. Back in ’68, Arthur Brown used to wear a fire helmet that made it look as if his hair was on fire. Now a days, bands have improved on these things and taken their shows to that next level. It's very important that we remember that music is theater and theater is music. If you can be a great player as well, then you are going to score gold.” For more Carl Palmer, please be sure to visit www.carlpalmer.com for more info and tour dates, and www.carlpalmerart.com to view and purchase items from his personal art collections.

To say that The Swon Brothers are on a bit of a roll in recent years has to be a bit of an understatement. Since their third-place finish on the hit tv show The Voice in 2013, The Swon Brothers have toured with country heavy-weight Brad Paisley, have been nominated twice by the CMA’s and have seen their self-titled album reach number six on the US Country Album chart. The Swon Brothers, Zach and Colton, recently took time from their current tour to talk with Full Access Magazine about their musical upbringing, their budding career and their early start in the music industry. “To be honest, we don't know how to do anything else. We were born into it and so we don't know any better. It's all we’ve ever known,” explained Colton. “It's kinda been bred into us since we were little. We've never known anything else. Now, the coolest part is being able to connect with so many fans; when they know your songs and sing them back to us; that's a really cool feeling. We grew up playing at fairs and stuff like that and we played a lot of other people's songs. So to finally hear our own song on the radio, and for people to know it and sing it back, that's probably our favorite part right now,” added Zach. The Oklahoma-native Swons got their first taste of performing when they were children

as they toured with their parents’ Gospel group, Exodus, in the late-1990’s. Zach, now 30, started playing drums at age 3 and eventually played them in his parents’ band at age 9; Colton, 26, was more of a stage performer and singer. By 2000, they toured alone in various spots around the area, selling-out the local Civic Center on a weekly basis. In 2007, Colton auditioned for American Idol, finishing at number 48 amongst the contestants. Then it all changed in 2013 with their entrance into The Voice that jump-started their career, resulting in a music contract with Arista records. The Swon Brothers had a total of ten singles released from The Voice, with five breaking into the Top-40 on the US Country Singles Chart. The Swon Brothers talk about that experience, as well as their different musical influences and touring with Brad Paisley. “The Voice, It was just a random, spurof-the-moment decision. We took off on a Thursday to drive to Memphis from Oklahoma and auditioned on that Friday, so it was just on a whim and it worked out,” Zach recalled. “I don't know if we expected we’d reach goals. There wasn't any part of us giving up and we never really had a backup plan. Whether it's in front of 10,000 people or 10 people, as long as somebody's

listening, we're gonna play. Also, we're kinda an open book. So far everyone's been really nice and it’s flattering and we've been ok.” “We listened to Southern Gospel growing up and then we discovered a band called The Eagles and we just fell in love with their records and that turned into Brad Paisley and Keith Urban and we even listened to Merle Haggard and George Jones records,” Colton explained. “There's so many people, even outside of Country music...Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles. There's so many we can name that have influenced us to make the sound we have today.” “Brad Paisley treated us like little brothers. It was amazing, we learned more than we ever thought we would. The only downfall was all of his pranks and that's just him. He's a prankster and a jokester. It was one thing after another,” Colton added. “I think the more he messes with ya, the more he likes ya. Evidently, that's the case and I'll take it.” The Swon Brothers make a strong effort to build relationships with their fans. Their Facebook fan-page is filled with interactive and personal posts where they interact with their fans on a sometimes daily-basis. They feel the importance of those relationships is the foundation to a successful career and try to be approachable whenever a chance to meet and talk with their fans arises. Colton talks about their fans as well as their social media connection with those fans. “There is no better fan in the world than a Country music fan and they treat us with so much respect and love at every show. They support us and are loyal,” Colton said. “I don't think it's too much access at all. The one thing that I love about my job is that I get to get up close and personal with people at shows, whether it's shaking hands or hugging necks. The more I can stay connected with them, I think it builds a relationship with them. It's not to sell records, it's to build good relationships with those fans.

The result, you will sell music and stay a float and those are the ones responsible for your career.” The Swon Brothers’ self-titled album was released in October 2014. Behind the singles Pray for You and the Top-15 hit, Later On, the album peaked at number six; Pray for You was eventually CMA-nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year. Despite these successes so early in their career, the Swons remain humble and talk of these successes, as well as any future album releases. “I don't ever think that we'll ever think like ‘we’ve arrived.’ We look around and we count our blessings. We see these mega stars that we've looked up to our whole life and I don't think there will ever be a feeling like ‘we've arrived’...I think there will always be that very appreciative and ‘don't take it for granted’ type feeling inside,” Colton said. We don't have an exact date on an album release, but we are working the album right now. We're writing like crazy and we're so excited from the sound we're getting on this record.” Be sure to come out and see The Swon Brothers when their current tour comes to Jacksonville’s Everbank Field on June 14th.

Digital preorder is available now and that provides an instant download of the lead track, “The Right Time,” featuring vocals by Wilson and Al Jardine and guitar by David Marks.

Ward, Peter Hollens, Capital Cities’ Sebu Simonian and trumpet master Mark Isham. “I wanted No Pier Pressure to be like 1960s mellow, reverting back to the ’60s with a mellow kind of sound.” Wilson is one of popular music’s most deeply revered figures, a legendary writer, producer, arranger and performer of some of the most cherished music in pop music history and began his career as a teenaged founding member of The Beach Boys who released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, in

1962. He is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient and a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee. As a member of the Beach Boys, Wilson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and honored with the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. A biopic on the music icon’s troubled life, Love & Mercy, hits theaters June 2015. The film stars Paul Dano and John Cusack (each portraying Wilson at different stages of his life). Full Access: I’m good, thanks. You have a lot going on what with the album and the film and everything! Let’s talk about the new record, No Pier Pressure. How did the title come about? Brian Wilson: My daughter, Daria, came up with that title. Full Access: Before you began writing the songs, did you have a theme or a direction in mind for the album? Brian Wilson: I wanted No Pier Pressure to be like 1960s mellow, reverting back to the ’60s with a mellow kind of sound. Full Access: Did you believe the Beach Boys would be performing the songs when you began work on No Pier Pressure? Brian Wilson: I changed my mind. I thought so, but then I decided to make it a solo album.

Full Access: Al Jardine and David Marks worked with you on the record. Did you invite Mike Love? Brian Wilson: No. No. We just mostly used Al. David didn’t sing on my album. Al did. Full Access: Tell me about your songwriting process. Brian Wilson: I write the core pattern first, then the melody, and then the words. Full Access: How do the lyrics come to you? Brian Wilson: They pop into my head. I write at the studio most of the time. Full Access: Your favorite songs from the album? Brian Wilson: I like “On the Island” by Zooey Deschanel and “Sail Away” sung by Blondie Chaplin. Those two are my favorites. My wife and I both chose Kacey Musgraves for the song “Guess You Had to Be There.” Full Access: Will you be touring this year to support the album? Brian Wilson: Sometime this summer, not sure where yet. Full Access: Well, the other big news is the film about your life. How long has that been in the works? Brian Wilson: Quite a while. The movie shows the different chapters of my life. The actors portrayed me very well. Full Access: Is John Cusack believable as an “older” Brian Wilson? Brian Wilson: He was cast by a man named Bill (Pohlad), a producer. John really portrayed my sense of humor very well. Full Access: What kind of a sense of humor do you have, Brian? Brian Wilson: The funny kind. I’m kind of funny. Full Access: Was there anything you didn’t want included in the film?

Brian Wilson: No. They covered my life. Full Access: Was it difficult for you to relive some of the troubled times? Brian Wilson: Yeah, when I was in a program called the Dr. (Eugene) Landy program. The guy (Paul Giamatti) that portrayed him was very well cast, and it brought back a lot of scary memories. I took drugs, marijuana and stuff like that, you know. That was kind of rough for me because to take drugs is a very scary experience. Full Access: How do you feel about the film? Brian Wilson: I’m proud of it because it portrayed me very well. The parts of my life where I was producing records, like in my early 20s, brought back a lot of good memories of me working with the Beach Boys. Full Access: Do you see yourself getting back together with the Beach Boys in the future? Brian Wilson: I don’t know at this time. Full Access: Will you and Mike be going to court for a legal ruling as to the ownership of the Beach Boys’ name? Brian Wilson: No. Mike has the name. He goes under the name of the Beach Boys. Full Access: One of my very favorite songs, “God Only Knows,” was honored last year by BBC Music. Is that the greatest song you’ve ever written? Brian Wilson: Probably my best, yeah. Full Access: What were you thinking about when you wrote it? Brian Wilson: I was thinking about my relationship with my girlfriend, and I wrote it for her.

Welcome to rockville (Metropolitan Park - Jacksonville, FL) - 4/25 & 4/26 Saturday night ended with several great performances by Slayer, Marilyn Manson and Korn. Slayer performed songs such as “Postmortem,” “Hate Worldwide” and finished with “Angels of Death.” Headliners Korn wrapped up the first day. They played their entire self-titled album much to the delight of their fans.

Welcome to Rockville is one of Florida’s premiere music festivals. The 5th annual festival was sold out with an estimated attendance of about 50,000 for the weekend. Despite the severe thunderstorms and a tornado warning on Saturday, which forced fans to take cover and evacuate the grounds on several occasions, the festival was able to continue on. Resulting in the cancellation of a few artists, including Fozzy, Scott Weiland and Hollywood Undead.

slash featuring Myles Kennedy

After a long delay, gates reopened just in time for Halestorm, Ministry and Suicidal Tendencies, but The Devil Wears Prada’s gear was completely destroyed by the rain, leaving them unable to perform.

slipknot

Sunday turned out to be a great day for music fans as all the bad weather was gone. Some of the highlights from Sunday was the performances by Motionless In White, Butcher Babies, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy, Hatebreed, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Godsmack, capped off by a great performance by Slipknot to close out the festival. They played hits such as “Psychosocial,” “Wait and Bleed,” and then closed out the night with “Sic” and “Surfacing.” Despite the weather delays on Saturday, the 5th year of Rockville turned out to be a huge success. Welcome To Rockville continues to grow in both popularity and with the quality of the entertainment, drawing fans from all over the country. This festival is definitely one not to be missed, so plan to attend Welcome to Rockville in 2016.

Whitesnake The Purple Album Frontiers Records 33322 by Terry Canter

Whitesnake is a sort of lone survivor after the wild west of hair metal. The English outfit started out as more of a straight forward hard rock band from the mind of former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale, a breath of fresh air among their ’80s counterparts. They began ahead of the pack, releasing their first album in 1978, and avoided the common death knell of that era by breaking up before Nirvana killed glam. Since their reunion in 2002, they’ve released three albums — the notat-all-bad Good To Be Bad, the all-too-long Forevermore, and this year’s all-toopredictable set of re-recordings, The Purple Album. Longtime fans will find thrills all over — the twisted riffage and extended soloing of “Burn” leaves no room for irony and makes a better argument than Chuck Klosterman for the validity of hair metal and shred. The hooks are deep throughout the first half, often blending the blues rock of the ‘70s, the predictable structures of the ‘80s, and modern production, all to some success. Strip “Love Child” of its tacky, prepubescent lyricism and the song would stand its ground almost anywhere — which is really too bad, because those vanilla and idiotic moments can burn an otherwise fun ride. “Love child, always teasing me” just doesn’t have a lasting appeal next to a serious examination of the aging rocker that is “Sail Away,” especially when their musical gun isn’t always loaded. The latter half of the album finds them repeatedly trying to re-invent the power ballad without much success. “Soldier of Fortune” tries to do it with melodramatic lyrics but few dynamic changes. “Holy 21

Man” falls flat almost everywhere except the impossibly fast but tasteful guitar solo, complete with twin harmonies and key twists. Longtime fans will still find what they’ve always loved and enjoy the new palette, but years later, the flaws that prevent the genre from critical success still exist, and prominently. Anti-Flag American Spring Spinefarm Records ggsff by Terry Canter

Give Anti-Flag their due: They’re pretty relentless. For more than 20 years, the spirited Pittsburgh punks have worked tirelessly to make their music count for something more than cheap thrills and mindless rebellion. But the band’s latest, American Spring, shows some cracks in the armor. “There must be more to life than this,” frontman Justin Sane muses to himself on “Walk Away.” That’s a worrysome thought coming from one of the genre’s most populist champions, but maybe there’s something to it. Sane may or may not be contemplating his band’s punk rock lot in life with that line, but either way, American Spring feels a little boxed in. Ten albums into a fruitful career, Anti-Flag is still chiseling away at the social ills that irk them, but it’s hard to shake the feeling we’ve been here already. Opener “Fabled World” starts swinging out the gate with both fists clenched, as the band laments “the new Jim Crow” and “the new slave trade.” “Sky Is Falling” covers some new sociopolitical ground to good effect, echoing global concerns over drone strikes. Musically, the band continues its shift toward anthemic pop punk, but American Spring’s best moments come when punk feels more like a side dish than the main course. “Brandenburg Gate”, featuring Rancid’s Tim Armstrong on guest

Full Access Magazine


vocals, might have the messy fingerprints of the Clash and Billy Bragg all over it, but it’s easily the record’s poppiest, most infectious tune. American Spring shows Anti-Flag can still put up a fight, but they’re not landing punches here as cleanly as they used to. “These times can leave you torn apart,” Sane sings on “Fabled World”. A line like that used to fuel the band’s best moments; here, it sounds more like business as usual. Du Blonde Welcome Back To Milk Mute Records ggggf by Terry Canter

When St. Vincent introduced her Einstein hair and excellent self-titled album last year, it was clear she had been reincarnated into a futuristic, alien being. Better still, it suited her because she decided it did. Reinvention stems from a desire to take on your true form at a given moment. It’s best illustrated by David Bowie, a musician who acted multiple times on this perpetual fluidity. The same is true for Beth Jeans Houghton. The polymath pop of 2012’s Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose, along with her old name and band, have been scrapped. Now known as Du Blonde, she is a 25-year-old aesthetic chameleon emerging on Welcome Back to Milk in a spiked collar of unrelenting attitude. Welcome Back to Milk playfully stretches its tough skin. As punchy as “Black Flag,” “Chip to Go,” and “Mr. Hyde” are, they let her scream about unbridled revenge on love and revolting against authority. Her voice, reminiscent of Karen O, Cher, and Be Your Own Pet’s Jemina Pearl, powers

through “If You’re Legal,” stirring up feedback the way her past self encouraged ‘70s folk. Du Blonde is heated, and she funnels it into inventive structures complete with Spanish horns and spiked bongos. Her reinvention flares on the quickening “My Mind is on My Mind” featuring a brief monologue from Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring. She wrote the song while on the back of a motorbike spinning down the Pacific Coast Highway, repeating it to herself from Topanga to Malibu. It’s a power combo of eerie church chants, Indian bass rhythms, and tempered drums. Welcome Back to Milk gives Du Blonde’s blisteringly creative mind space to experiment, and her edits show immaculate choices. When she originally went back into the studio in November of 2012, Houghton was disappointed. She was trapped in baroque pop that wouldn’t bend, so she bailed. The nine months she then spent traveling gave her time to locate the hidden glam rock core. Du Blonde steps out from behind her guitar to relish sassy lyrics wrapped in the emotional, punchy, inspirational climax of closer “Isn’t It Wild”. A recording of an elder’s advice on love opens up for reflections on identity. “Isn’t it wild how we love to indulge in the sorry-ass show of illusion/ In order to save us from our social grave?” she sings through a lo-fi crackle, floating along the song’s toy piano. It’s an ode to herself and the distance she’s come since ditching the studio three years ago. Du Blonde’s reinvention works. As with Clark last year and Bowie every decade prior, it suits her well, even if that means sporting a merkin in her cover art.
