INTERVALS announce Mike Semesky as vocalist and debut LP prior to UK / EU tour with PROTEST THE HERO

Monday 30th December, 2013


Canadian/US progressive metallers and former instrumentalists, INTERVALS, have announced the next stage in their exciting musical journey: the addition of vocalist, MIKE SEMESKY.


The band have released Mike's vocal debut in the form of new single ‘Ephemeral’ via Revolver, check it out here:




Mike’s vocals have manifested in many guises over the past few years; most notably on the debut album from UK metallers The Haarp Machine, where Rock Sound magazine commented that his performance is one of the album's highlights. Metal Hammer magazine were also huge fans, choosing a track off the record to open their October 2012 ‘Metal 2.0 – Future Metal’ cover-mount CD.


Mike comments: “I'm extremely happy to announce that I am the singer of Intervals. I joined the band on bass in early 2013, but after writing and experimenting with vocals over demos of the band's new material, the four of us knew that that was the direction we were meant to go. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a talented group of musicians and I'm extremely proud of the album we all worked so hard on. We can't wait for you all to hear it!”


INTERVALS have been making huge waves State / Canada side over the past few years following the release of their debut instrumental EP, 'The Space Between', and sophomore EP, 'In Time'. Viral tracks and numerous tours with the likes of Texas In July, Northlane, Structures, The Kindred, The Color Morale, Misery Signals and more, have built a devoted fan-base and quickly affirmed the band as serious contenders on the international circuit. Given INTERVALS' early success as an instrumental outfit, it was a gamble for primary writer / guitarist Aaron Marshall to bring in a full-time vocalist, but it's a move that he feels is absolutely right.


Aaron comments: “We're incredibly excited and proud to announce Mike as the band's singer. Intervals has always been about open minded, forward thinking, progressive music with no boundaries. It's also been about staying true to the art we feel compelled to make, and we couldn't be happier with the dynamic Mike brings to the music. For those who remember, the band put out a feeler for a vocalist with the release of "The Space Between", but in lieu of finding the right candidate, we decided to move forward with our initial intent: Make music. Mike joined the band as our bass player, but after only a few weeks of touring, it was apparent that this was the chemistry we were after all along. The human voice is an instrument and from our perspective, we are by definition, still an "instrumental" band, now with added dimension and perspective. The band still retains its identity in guitar driven, progressive rock/metal and there's something on this record for everyone. We couldn't be more thankful for the support you have all shown us over the past few years and we hope you continue to follow along on this journey we share. This release is our proudest musical accomplishment to date and we can't wait for everyone to hear it!”


Completing the line-up are drummer Anup Sastry (Jeff Loomis, Skyharbor) and guitarist Lukas Guyader. The four-piece have completed work on the debut album, which is due for a spring release.

US theatrical rockers FAREWELL, MY LOVE release debut record in the UK

Monday 16th December, 2013


Having taken the USA by storm with their theatrical hard rock, FAREWELL, MY LOVE prepare to hit the UK with the release of their debut album ‘Gold Tattoos’ on 3 February via Standby Records, the label responsible for breaking Black Veil Brides.

Check out their video to the track 'Mirror Mirror' here.

And their facebook profile with 210k likes and growing: https://www.facebook.com/farewellmyloveofficial

Rock n’ Roll should be larger than life. Rock stars are superheroes who take the stage propelled by a pomp and circumstance rivaling the royalty of old. They adopt fantastical personas that enrapture an audience, transporting participants away from their every day struggles and problems into a world of freedom and possibility.

FAREWELL, MY LOVE are ready to take on the UK, carrying the torch aloft for a new generation hungry for the power, energy and magnetic combustibility inherent in the best rock. The five young men of FAREWELL, MY LOVE have come together to share their individual hardships, triumphs and passions through a collective vehicle. They’ve taken the sum total of the lives they’ve lived thus far and fashioned them into a unique weapon to hand over to their audiences for the mutual uplifting of all involved.

The conceptual artistry and theatricality of My Chemical Romance, the reckless danger and skillful musicianship of Avenged Sevenfold, the dark mystique and anthem-inducing sing-alongs of AFI and the brash experimentalism and attitude of 30 Seconds to Mars are all components that have a home in the Farewell, My Love manuscript. With forceful determination and wonderfully soaring grandiosity, Farewell, My Love put a unique spin on theatrical hard rock with utmost dedication.

Be prepared to see a lot more of this outrageous spectacle in 2014.

Come one, come all, try Dr Morguey’s ‘Cadaver Impaler’ – the perfect accompaniment to Morgue Orgy’s ‘The Last Man on Earth!’

Friday 13th December, 2013


Maggot-hoarders and death metal mavericks Morgue Orgy release their own vibrator, the ‘Cadaver Impaler’, to coincide with their debut full-length release, The Last Man on Earth, and their recent video premiere on Terrorizer. The creator, Dr Morguey, explains more...

“Having been long employed in the cultivation and study of pathology and thanatology I, Dr Morguey, have seen more than my fair share of the recently deceased. It is with increasing frustration, therefore, to note that there are so few who cater for the needs of the necrophile.

NO LONGER! I, Dr Morguey, am proud to present Dr Morguey’s Cadaver Impaler in association with sextoys.co.uk, the number one corpse penetration product; perfectly recommended for that impending moment of The Last Man on Earth, the Cadaver Impaler suits all those still-warm needs.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! In employing the Cadaver Impaler, it has been regularly commented that users achieve greater satisfaction when thrusting to a specific beat, or pulse, if you will; it is for this reason that I am pleased to announce the accompanying release of Morgue Orgy’s debut full-length collection, The Last Man on Earth.

A free gift to music lovers worldwide, a digital version of The Last Man on Earth can be yours for free this very Christmas Day in the year of our Lord 2013; for the more affluent, the album is purchasable from January the 13th.

THAT’S NOT ALL! Connoisseurs who undertake a purchase of the troupe’s collection are eligible to receive their own Cadaver Impaler, however, in order to do so, said connoisseurs must pre-order their own physical copies of the release before the date of Friday the 20th of this month of December. The most esteemed gift with the most esteemed accoutrement, Dr Morguey’s Cadaver Impaler and Morgue Orgy’s The Last Man on Earth are all you need to enjoy the forthcoming apocalypse, for use only in the case of human extinction. Not convinced? Watch my endorsement!



THAT’S ALL!"

Undergroove Records return with first signing in two years - SERVERS

Wednesday 11th December, 2013


Legendary cult label Undergroove has announced its first signing in two years by inking a deal with South Yorkshire’s dirtiest rock ‘n’ rollers SERVERS.

To celebrate, Servers will release their debut single ‘Universes & Supernovas (The Ride) via iTunes on December 16.

To accompany, the band has also shot a video - directed by Jagermeister Music’s official photographer Mark Latham which premieres today at FRONT Magazine. Click here to view.

The single will feature the half-evil single edit of ‘Universes…’ along with the full-version and an exclusive track ‘King Things – Dead Girl’ (demo version).

Following on, the band’s debut album ‘Leave With Us’ will be released on February 24 2014 on CD and digital format. It’s an album that features an insight into Servers’ fascination into the world of cults; cult leaders and the control and influence that one person can have on another in the name of a higher power or intelligence.

Says frontman Lee Storrar: “‘Universes…’ is a song about Yvonne & Steve McCudy-Hill who left their new born twins and three other kids to go and join the Heavens Gate cult. They dumped their kids on his mother... once in the cult they were kept apart which eventually got too much for the guy who then left and spent the rest of the time trying to get her to see sense and leave. She maintained that she loved them all but continued being a member and killed herself along with the other 38 members to board the spaceship that was hidden behind the Hale Bop Comet in order to achieve the next level of existence.”

‘Leave With Us’ was recorded with Matt Ellis (Black Spiders) at Axis Studios and continues Storrar’s long-standing recording relationship with the frontman.

Servers were formed by former GU Medicine frontman Lee Storrar. As GU Medicine, Lee released three critically acclaimed albums, had features in Kerrang!, Classic Rock and Rock Sound (amongst others); toured the UK The Wildhearts, Skid Row, My Ruin, Viking Skull, appeared at Sonisphere and Hard Rock Hell festivals and recorded a BBC Radio One Rock Show session at Maida Vale.

Established in 1999, as well as releasing the GU Medicine catalogue, Undergroove has released music for esteemed artists such as Exit_International, Black Spiders, The Ghost Of A Thousand, Minus The Bear, Aereogramme, *shels, Sorry & The Sinatras, Charger, Twin Zero, My Ruin, Lazarus Blackstar, Co-Exist and many more.



Servers will release their debut single ‘Universes & Supernovas (The Ride) via iTunes on December 16.
