BILLY SHEEHAN (NIACIN, ex-DLR, Mr. Big) Announces Bass Clinic Tour Dates

Neo-fusion instrumental super trio NIACIN recently released their sixth studio album Krush, their first new music in over eight years. The album, described as a “high-octane thrill ride” by Revolver, was recorded at Clear Lake Studios in North Hollywood (No Doubt, Black Veil Brides) with engineer Ara Sariksian (Steel Panther) while being mixed and mastered by Dino Herrmann (Scorpions, Guns N’ Roses, Meat Loaf). You can purchase a copy of the album from the Prosthetic webstore HERE or download a digital version from iTunes or Amazon mp3.

The group’s legendary bassist Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, David Lee Roth, Steve Vai) has announced a series of free Guitar Center Workshops throughout May which will feature a live performance, Q&A, meet-and-greet and autograph signing. Dates are listed below. In addition to being able to pick up a copy of “Krush” at each stop, attendees can enter to win Sheehan’s Hartke bass amplification rig, which includes an LH1000 Bass Amplifier and AK410/AK115 Bass Cabinets, or an autographed pack of Rotosound Swing Bass 66 strings.

The moniker NIACIN — the common name of the vitamin B3 — refers to the integral musical role played by the Hammond B-3 organ in shaping the band’s sound, a combination of jazz and rock roots mixed with inspiration from B-3 legends such as Blind Faith, Keith Emerson, Jon Lord (Deep Purple), and Ken Hensley (Uriah Heep). Stay tuned for more information and tour dates in the coming weeks!

Directed by veteran Dale “Rage” Resteghini, Open Eyes comes with just seven days remaining before their new LP Full Of War becomes available.

“Open Eyes is a song about the real world vs. the perceived world. This video shows the dangers of living in the latter of the two,” says vocalist Brandon Roundtree.

CONDITIONS will release their newest full length Full Of War on March 26, 2013.

“If you haven’t grasped this yet, Full Of War is a fantastic album that should be the envy of My Chemical Romance, Paramore and Taking Back Sunday. It is the first truly essential listening of the year” – Outburn Magazine

PRE-ORDER ON ITUNES HERE

Producers Brandon Paddock and Taylor Larsen (PERIPHERY), who’ve done various production and engineering work with THE USED, PAPA ROACH and BLACK VEIL BRIDES, among others have helped CONDITIONS craft an album that is leaps and bounds beyond their already impressive debut, Fluorescent Youth.

“We wholeheartedly believed in our last record,” insists Roundtree.

“But then after we lived with it, we realized it was maybe a little ‘safe’ for us. We took that very much to heart and decided to showcase the fact that we are not a play-it-safe band.”

CONDITIONS Release New Lyric Video

(NEW YORK, NY) – With a brand new record only weeks away, CONDITIONS released a brand lyric video today highlighting the track Love Elusive.

The band had their fans send in snapshots of themselves portraying the lyrics to the song so they could be compiled into the lyric video you are seeing today.

CONDITIONS will release their newest full length Full Of War on March 26, 2013.

“With the markedly improved musicianship and songwriting found on Full Of War, the band should be headlining their own treks in the near future” – Alternative Press
