City Of Souls
City Of SoulsBoasting members from bands that have etched their mark on the local and international hard rock and metal scene such as Blindspott, Blacklistt, 8 Foot Sativa, New Way Home, Cold By Winter, In Dread Response and Solstate, City of Souls was set to stir some interest, and stir they have. Too often when something is hyped it is followed with disappointment, yet the first City Of Souls single Sleep arrives unashamedly explosive, touting emotive energy juxtaposed with a certain calm which will become this band's signature. Recorded at Roundhead Studios, it was mixed by legendary engineer Clint Murphy, and mastered at Sterling Sound in New York. With a power reminiscent of Deftones and hinting at new wave, the song progresses and transcends towards a critical peak, and a journey into Killing Joke territory, before spiraling back out into the melodic emotive hook of the chorus. Received overwhelmingly by a growing fanbase, added to radio for day and night rotation Sleep went straight to number one on the itunes rock chart.
DecadesDecades are a rock band from Christchurch, New Zealand. Made up of 4 long standing friends; Emma Cameron (guitar, vocals, song writer), Liam Muir (guitar, song writer), Daniel Perry (drums), and Curtis Booth (bass, beard), they are proud to announce the release date of their debut album, titled The Truth and Other People, on July 14th. Decades have put together an album of 10 tracks forming an - at times - controversial story following the relationship tribulations and a love triangle of front-woman Emma Cameron. Leading the story with the band’s debut single, Terrified – which details the night she made the decision to change her life – The Truth and Other People rolls out in a track-by-track timeline of the emotions and events it spurned. “Often a taboo subject; but one I feel a lot of people my age experience when going through that development stage of being a late teenager in to adulthood, this album describes a period of time where you really start to figure out your own life path, values, passions, and seek to surround yourself with people who share these with you. It’s a hard story to tell; growing up, growing apart, the effects other people can have on each other, and finding the strength to tell the truth to people, but more importantly; to yourself.”
Killing HeidiIt’s been twenty years since triple j unearthed the Hooper siblings as Killing Heidi with their disarming folk pop song, ‘Kettle’.

StrangersOn their second album, Mirrorland, firebrand heavy rockers Strangers spit and swagger their way through a soundscape of grinding melodic grandeur and flat out stomping energy. Inspired by some very personal demons, the band delivers a pulverising exhibition of creative redemption, finding something universal in the ashes of individual experience.

VillainyFrom the stage to the studio, Villainy have been triumphantly smashing everything in their wake. Multiple music awards for Best Rock Album? Tick. Six #1 Rock singles? Yep. AC/DC support around NZ? Yeah, that too. Formed in 2010, Villainy have established themselves as one of the most vital and relevant rock bands in New Zealand. With a sound rooted in a love of distortion and meaningful songwriting freed from the trappings of modern rock cliches, the band have resonated massively with audiences throughout New Zealand, and increasingly overseas. In an age where artists are resorting to digital trickery to achieve their sound, Villainy do it the old fashioned way - four guys in a room, pushing themselves and their instruments to their absolute limits. The resulting music is cathartic, honest and really fucking loud. The band stormed the New Zealand airwaves with debut album 'Mode. Set. Clear.' launching three massive radio hits in Alligator Skin, Ammunition and Gather Yourselves. It culminated in multiple national tours, a New Zealand Music Award for Best Rock Album , support slots for Incubus, The Offspring and Billy Talent and appearances at the Big Day Out and Homegrown festivals.
