BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE have announced the digital release of a new remix EP entitled CELESTIAL PROGRESSION on April 17 via Solid State Records. The EP features remixes of six songs that were featured on the 2011 release CELESTIAL COMPLETITON, an album I gave a perfect 5/5 rating to when I was still at Kik Axe Music (the review is actually quoted in the EP's press release). Needless to say, I'm excited.
It's been a little while since I've done a Random Rock column, so we're more than overdue. The drill is simple - I offer random-fire updates on a few dozen artists along with links to dig deeper, should you choose. From here on out, I'm adding 'N' MORE' to the title so that I can include some non-rock stuff on occasion. With a current total of 7,943 unread emails sitting in my inbox (no joke!) I sometimes wonder if the bands, artists, labels, managers, and publicists appreciate my taking the time to do this... but I do love spreading the rock. Here's updates on 31 Artists for Thursday, March 15, 2012!
The MELVINS have partnered with Scion A/V Metal for a FREE original EP entitled THE BULLS & THE BEES. The band's first new music since 2010's THE BRIDE SCREAMED MURDER can be downloaded (in exchange for an email) via the TopSpin widget below. Since I love MELVINS and have a Scion XB (with a million miles on it and in need of constant repair lately), I feel good about sharing this here on The Rock Father™.
Harmonix today alerted The Rock Father™ that tracks from award-winning Canadian rock group Three Days Grace are headed to the Rock Band™ Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™.
I haven't played an old-school ''fighting'' game in years, but this makes me wanna get going on that again. Personally, I've always been more of a STREET FIGHTER guy myself, but this audio/visual mashup from British electronic duo ADDICTIVE TV finds the pair doing battle against both STREET FIGHTER and TEKKEN inhabitants. Something interesting to start your Monday off? Perhaps...
