    Buckcherry

    Hard Rock

    Buckcherry is unique, complex, simple, passionate, explosive, original, and always a good time. BC has been my love, my pain, my passion and I'm so proud of what we have accomplished. I never knew when I started this that dedicating myself tomusic would be taking on so much responsibility. For a guy who never thought he was going to live past 30 this has been an incredible journey. Our ninth record HELLBOUND marks 22 years since our debut self-titled release and what an amazing roller coaster we have been on. From hit songs to platinum and gold records and millions of fans worldwide - all during a time period when traditional sounding hard rock bands didn't exist - except for Buckcherry. We beat the odds and built our reputation on the live shows, and our "one of a kind" approach to every opportunity.

    When the pandemic hit, we had to shift gears like everyone else and it was anything but comfortable. The good news is when this band is backed up against the wall, we produce our best music. HELLBOUND reflects just that. Teaming up with Marti Fredrickson again was so inspiring. He really brings out the best of us and becomes the sixth band member when we are together. There is this mutual respect and passion going on that makes it effortless and fun.

    There was so much going on in the world that it was easy to find subject matter for song writing. Songs like BARRICADE and JUNK reflect that, but I also was reminiscing about the moment when I "sold my soul to rock n' roll". I will never forget it. It was the very first performance at a house party in Orange County, CA. I knew in that moment that there was no looking back, and no "plan B". It was only victory or death. The title track HELLBOUND reflects that very moment and is one of my favorite tracks. Part of what I loved about rock records growing up was the dynamics from song to song, you had mid-tempo songs, ballads, and rockers and HELLBOUND is a great reflection of that. Songs like NO MORE LIES, AIN'T WASTING NO MORE TIME, and THE WAY really capture the depth and emotion of not only the world situation but also the personal struggle. Then you must have those quintessential Buckcherry tracks like SO HOT, 5-4-3-2-1, HERE I COME and GUN that I can see our long time fans really appreciating.

    Through adversity Buckcherry has had its greatest moments and we are having one right now with HELLBOUND I hope, r u enjoy it, and we will see you at the rock show!!

    Scarlet Rebels

    Hard Rock

    Melodic hard rock band Scarlet Rebels were formed from the foundations of rock band V0iD.

    The band have released three official albums under the name of V0iD – Ballads For Beauties And Beasts (2009), Zer0 (2010) and Keep Fighting (2015).

    In 2018, singer-songwriter Wayne Doyle, energetic and powerhouse drummer Gary Doyle and harmonic, rhythmic bassist Wayne ‘Pricey’ Esmonde we’re joined by blistering lead guitarist Chris Jones and on second guitar/keyboards, Josh Townshend, who has rock royalty flowing through his veins, being the son of The Who guitarist Simon Townshend and the nephew of rock icon Pete Townshend.

    And with the re-energised and re-imagined line-up came a new name – SCARLET REBELS

    ‘Show Your Colours’ is the debut album by Scarlet Rebel, showcasing an array of songwriting talent, coupled with real sonic weight, making it a stunning record from start to finish, never losing the focus that the song is always served best.

    With the expert ears of Tim Hamill (Lemmy, Girlschool, George Michael) controlling the desk, the recording process started with drums and rhythm guitars before then handing over to the rest of the band to put their stamp on the songs.

    The outcome was 14 songs of soaring melodies, anthemic choruses, blistering guitars and heavy-duty drums.

    Taking inspiration from the political situations across the world. Songs like ‘No One Else To Blame’ starts with a punch to the guts, thanks to a roaring guitar intro from Chris Jones, and sets the tone for the whole album. ‘You Take My Breath Away’ hits you with chorus of huge proportions while the talkbox intro and rant of ‘Head’s In The Ground’ follows.

    Next up is southern influenced ‘Part Of Me’ followed by the beautiful and poignant ‘Heal’ which climaxes with a duel chorus of two separate voices conversing. ‘Let Your Love Go’, ‘Nothing To Say’ and ‘Save Me’ maintain the highest of songwriting prowess and are all huge choruses based around roaring guitars and skull-busting drums.

    ’Blinded By The Pain’ follows with lyrical content based around mental health, which starts as a quiet introspective verse, that builds into a crescendo of layered vocals, guitars and pianos. ‘Shattered Dreams’ kicks the tempo back up with tribal drums, guitars and powerful vocals, before ‘Can I Open My Eyes’ sees an autobiographical lament from singer Wayne Doyle, who’s tendency to get lost in the moment on stage means he often forgets the details of each show! The album closes with the sublime ‘Returning Light’ a haunting ballad about bereavement and losing someone close to you.

    Scarlet Rebels prove on this album that songwriting, melodies, guitars, solos, bass and drums won’t ever go out of fashion.

    Scarlet Rebels are on the march

    Scarlet Rebels are:
    Wayne Doyle (vocals/guitar)
    Chris Jones (lead guitar)
    Josh Townshend (guitar)
