If you’ve been looking for some new sounds featuring kick ass heavy fuzzed out guitars, look no further and wrap your ears around the music of RavenEye, a new power trio that is in the midst of starting to turn a lot of heads. They’ve just released their debut EP Breaking Out and Popdose is pleased to have the exclusive premiere for the lyric video of the title track (embedded below). The band is currently touring Europe at the moment and they’re set to support Slash for five dates as part of that touring and they’ve got their eye on conquering the U.S. as well. The project is barely a year old, the brainchild of singer/guitarist Oli Brown who at age 25 already had three successful solo albums to his credit, plus touring with Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Johnny Winter, just to name a few. We caught up with Brown via Skype this past week while we were waiting for a plumber to come to the house (it is indeed, the glamorous life) …

Gary Cherone is perhaps best-known for being the longtime vocalist of the Boston-based rock band Extreme and after that, the guy who picked up the microphone for Van Halen as the group’s singer for the Van Halen III album and tour. (If you’re a Van Halen fan, hopefully you got a chance to see Cherone on that tour — the shows were great!) Since 2007, Cherone has been focused on his new band Hurtsmile, a collaboration with his brother Mark playing guitars, bassist Joe Pessia and drummer Dana Spellman. They released their self-titled debut in 2011, which Cherone described at the time as an album which was “about returning to my roots [and] writing a record in my basement — a straight up rock `n’ roll record that turned out to be more diverse and ambitious than I expected.” The Hurtsmile album was well-received and Cherone and crew have come back around for round two, with plans to release their second album Retrogrenade in late May. Fans can pre-order the album now via PledgeMusic and …

Legendary guitarist Peter Frampton spent the past couple of years on the road celebrating the 35th anniversary of his world renowned ’70s live album Frampton Comes Alive, performing the album in full each night at a string of sold out shows throughout the U.S. and Canada. The collective nostalgia which remains present for Alive might have caught even Frampton himself a little bit by surprise. Due to the success of the tour, a planned single year’s worth of tour dates soon stretched beyond that with Frampton continuing to perform the classic album for additional audiences in 2012. Frampton has new tricks in his bag as we approach the summer months of 2013. Beginning this month, he’ll take Peter Frampton’s Guitar Circus out on the road, a six string experience which will find Frampton joined by a few old friends, including B.B. King, Sonny Landreth and Robert Cray, who will each join Frampton for a rich evening of guitar rock. The Robert Cray Band accompany Frampton for the first leg of the tour beginning on May …
At 72 years of age, there’s not much that Jim Horn hasn’t done. While his name might not be immediately familiar, you’ve definitely heard a lot of his work over the years. The session vet got his start playing sax and flute as a key member of Duane Eddy’s band in the late ‘50s (in fact, Eddy once turned down an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry, because they didn’t allow saxophones – which they called the “instrument of the devil”). His work with Eddy was merely the starting point of his professional career. From there, he would become one of the most in-demand session players (and a member of the well-known “Wrecking Crew”) during the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. He got the chance to work with all four Beatles. What else needs to be said? Okay fine, here’s more: You’ll find his work on songs like “Good Vibrations,” “God Only Knows by the Beach Boys, “Running on Empty” by Jackson Browne, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin” by the Righteous Brothers, music for the movie …
If Armageddon is indeed lurking anywhere around the corner, at least there will be a soundtrack thanks to Rick Springfield’s newest album Songs For The End Of The World. Better still, Songs is a quality listen for your final trip into the great beyond, the latest in a string of solid albums that Springfield has put out in the past decade. At a time when many of Springfield’s peers are slowing down and either putting out no new music or recording sporadically, the Australian-born rocker keeps on charging ahead with seemingly limitless energy for a man who officially is 63 years young. Part of that is because Springfield wants to continue to make sure that people are aware that although he is well known for his successful acting career (and the related ‘80s teenage heartthrob status that came with that) and other side trips, it’s music that is always first and foremost in his heart. He’s still working to define how people view Rick Springfield, the artist. Even after selling more than 25 million albums …
