The result of musical training that began as young as age 5, CHERRI BOMB serves up an impressive full-length debut on THIS IS THE END OF CONTROL. Out this week on Hollywood Records, the album shows a band that performs at a level well-beyond their years - something no doubt guided and honed by manager Samantha Maloney (drummer formerly of HOLE, MOTLEY CRUE, PEACHES among others) and the production team of Red Decibel (Adam Watts, Andy Dodd & Gannin Arnold), while brought to a perfect mix by Chris Lord-Alge.

It's time for a weekend edition of The Random Rock N' More, the column where the ''...for Grown-ups'' section infiltrates the normally family-friendly homepage of The Rock Father. Below you'll find updates on over 40 bands and artists - all of which have hit my inbox in the past few days. ''Random Rock'' means just that. Black Metal, indie, punk, acoustic, underground, mainstream - it's all here. ''N' More is everything else for a well-balanced musical parfait. Let's get to work.

It's the middle of the week and the music news is flowing. While The Rock Father™ is all about entertainment for the kids, there's plenty of Music for Grownups, and that brings us to another edition of The Random Rock N' More. I've got rapid fire updates on over 40 bands and artists starting with ''rock'' (from mainstream to indie, pop rock to black metal), and finishing with ''N' More,'' brief items from elsewhere in the musical spectrum. A well-rounded musical pallette is good for the ears. Here we go!

Judging from the hit-count on my blog posting yesterday that featured a 22-second snippet of a new SOUNDGARDEN song slated for inclusion on THE AVENGERS Soundtrack, I'd say interest in both the film and the band are pretty high. Well, earlier today, Disney sent over the full tracklisting for AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: Music From and Inspired by The Motion Picture. Additionally, The Rock Father has learned that the aforementioned SOUNGARDEN cut Live to Rise will be featured over the end credits of the film.  Check out the full tracklisting and all the artists below.

Free Download: CHERRI BOMB - "Raw. Real"

I'm really digging CHERRI BOMB, and I think by the end of 2012, a lot of people will be feeling the same way. Hollywood Records sent over their 2011 STARK EP last week along with an advance copy of their forthcoming album THIS IS THE END OF CONTROL, and believe me - this L.A.-based group of teenage female rockers is impressive. Managed by former HOLE drummer Samantha Maloney, CHERRI BOMB is offering a limited-time Free Download of their new single, Raw. Real. Grab a copy on their official site, or through the TopSpin widget below.
