IN SOLITUDE Re-Issue Debut Album

Swedish metal phenom IN SOLITUDE will re-issue their eponymous debut album on January 22 in North America.

Originally released in 2008, this sold-out and much sought-after cult opus will include two bonus tracks: Hidden Dangers (In the Night) – originally recorded in 2006 and only available on an out-of-print 2008 7” and the previously unreleased Faceless Mistress demo.

Additional IN SOLITUDE news and tour information available on their ReverbNation page.

The re-issue will be available in three different editions; CD jewel case with slipcase (international edition), CD jewel case (North American edition), and a limited edition double gate-fold LP (45 rpm for enhanced sound) with a poster and digital download card.

Both CD editions, the gate-fold LP, t-shirts and CD+shirts bundles can be pre-ordered at the Season of Mist E-shop.

On the re-issue launch, drummer Uno states: 

“It’s amazing to finally have this album get top notch worldwide distribution so it can reach all our fans, old and new.  We have no doubts this will serve well for all involved, especially for those who long have tried to find it outside of Europe, with negative result! We are also happy to present some rare bonus tracks and to have our fans hear the album in an enhanced way that 45rpm will surely deliver. Enjoy!”  

“Ever since we discovered this debut back in 2009, IN SOLITUDE have been one of our favorite new bands” – Revolver Magazine

NJ Rockers RECOVERY COUNCIL Announce Album Release

Geek chicks sure can rock out and Rebeca Qualls is living proof. New Jersey-based RECOVERY COUNCIL began as Qualls’ nerdy lo-fi space rock solo project in grad school but has evolved into a power trio juggernaut with a heavy rock nucleus and a new album Plan-Do-Check-Act to be released January 15 on Dot Ultra RecordsPlan-Do-Check-Act is RECOVERY COUNCIL’s third full-length studio album but the first release since becoming a full band in the summer of 2011. While the band’s sound has taken a more raucous turn, Qualls continues to exude her inner geek with lyrical introspect and technical allusion.

RECOVERY COUNCIL will be hitting the road throughout the winter showcasing music from Plan-Do-Check-Act. A current listing of shows includes an upcoming gig December 7 at Le Grand Fromage in Atlantic City, where dry goods will be collected for Hurricane Sandy victims and the door proceeds will go to restore damage sustained by the venue.

Qualls says of the event,

“Knowing Atlantic City was one of the harder hit areas, we were surprised to find out that the venue was still open, although the first floor had been affected. We will be donating all of our door proceeds toward their restoration efforts. It’s a great way to support live music and help keep a good local venue running.”

RECOVERY COUNCIL is Qualls on guitar and vocals, along with New Jersey native Jeff Trenholm on drums and Dominican Republic-born Isidro Santos on bass. Since becoming a band in 2011, their collective influences have lent themselves to their rhythm-driven, melodic style. Qualls cites post-punk influences such as Husker Du and Helmet, but relies on her metal and rock roots dating back to her childhood, beginning with Iron Maiden, early Metallica, and Rush. The latter also made a big impact on Trenholm in his formative years, in addition to The Cure and Pink Floyd. Meanwhile, Santos found his niche in early-mid ’90s rock, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, and Dominican-based Toque ProfundoPlan-Do-Check-Act captures a moment in time where the three musicians’ unique styles and backgrounds perfectly intersect as a cohesive whole.


12/7: Atlantic City, NJ @ Le Grand Fromage (All proceeds to go to repairs of Le Grand Fromage. Canned goods will also be collected at the door to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims)

1/17/13: Newportville, PA @ Roadhouse Inn

2/7/13: Philadelphia, PA @ JR’s Bar

2/16/13: New York, NY @ Desmond’s Tavern

Decibel magazine claims,

“You’d have to go back 20 years to find a metal record that achieves this level of instant infectiousness,” comparing it to the iconic Megadeth record Countdown to Extinction and labelling vocalist James Paul Luna as “the finest metal singer of his generation.”

The first single from the album, Dark Passenger, was released on 7″ vinyl recently while the band toured alongside Hellyeah. This year, the band has also been seen playing alongside the likes of Black Label Society, Valient Thorr, Dio Disciples, Royal Thunder, Sebastian Bach, Dragonforce and more.

PICTURE ME BROKEN (Gregg Allman’s hot daughter) Release EP

PICTURE ME BROKEN to Release Mannequins EP December 18th on Standby Records

(Redwood City, CaliforniaPICTURE ME BROKEN will be releasing their new EP entitled Mannequins December 18 on Standby Records. The EP, produced and recorded by David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin) features the single “Torture” which is streaming HERE.

PICTURE ME BROKEN, led by Brooklyn Layla Allman, hasn’t taken long to convince fans worldwide that they are a breed of old school soul meets modern day turmoil to create a modern sound that will appeal to all that experience it. With Allman’s father being the musical legend Gregg Allman, it would have been easy for this act to simply let his stigma dictate their career path and allow them somewhat immediate success.  But Brooklyn and PICTURE ME BROKEN had different ideas; ideas of doing their work themselves, cutting their own niche out in a very tough active rock market, and slugging it out day by day on the road.  They have proven themselves to be musically superior to any act they’ve toured with to date by showing not only hard work, but a willingness to connect with their audience… one fan at a time if necessary.

Mannequins will be followed up in early 2013 with a full length album on Standby Records

With Allman out in front of PICTURE ME BROKEN, this is a band that commands attention from even the first glance.  Brooklyn Allman is clearly a beautiful woman, as evidenced by her 2012 nomination in Revolver Magazine‘s Hottest Chicks In Metal. That however doesn’t begin to portray the incredible talent that she has as a singer, a songwriter and a performer. Allman’s voice showcases everything you could ever want from a vocalist; be it soft alluring pain on songs like “Beautiful Disease” or a much more guttural rage that she lets loose on songs like “Holy Drug”.
