HOLY GRAIL Premiere New Video

 

Having just completed touring with the Anthrax-headlined Metal Alliance Tour, Los Angeles heavy metal quintet HOLY GRAIL are excited to premiere their second-ever music video. Directed by Will Knapp, Ride The Void — the title track from their critically acclaimed sophomore release — can be seen below or on YouTube.

Described as “the second coming of Judas Priest” by the Washington Times, HOLY GRAIL spent much of 2012 recording Ride The Void – which cracked the Top 10 of the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon its release earlier this year – with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children of Bodom).

“You’d have to go back 20 years to find a metal record that achieves this level of instant infectiousness.” Decibel

The album is currently available on iTunes and Amazon MP3, as well as on CD or LP via RideTheVoid.com.

HOLY GRAIL are currently touring their way west with Exodus. The band will also play a show at the Viper Room in Los Angeles — their first hometown headlining performance since the release of Ride The Void — on May 15. Additional tour dates will be announced soon.
HOLY GRAIL live:
4/25 Ashwaubenon, WI – Green Bay Distillery *
4/26 Fargo, ND – House of Rock *
4/27 Billings, MT – The Railyard *
5/15 Los Angeles, CA – The Viper Room
* with Exodus

TO HUMANS Featuring JEREMY LOMBARDO Releases EP

(Apple Valley, CA) – TO HUMANS, a new alternative rock project featuring drummer Jeremy Lombardo (son of world-famous metal drummer Dave Lombardo), released a brand new self-titled 5-track EP. It is available via their official Bandcamp page. TO HUMANS also features lyricist/vocalist/guitarist Danny Toranzo and bassist Ace Anderson.

TO HUMANS: New Alternative Project Featuring Jeremy Lombardo Releases New Self-Titled EP

Drummer Jeremy Lombardo states,

“When we perform, we’re definitely not your average indie rock band. We definitely all have a connection to each other when we perform live. There’s a certain spirit that we all feel and we try our hardest to impress and share that emotion and spirit that we feel with our audiences.”

Jeremy adds,

“The new EP is essentially a compilation of some of our earlier songs that the band wrote a long time ago, mixed with a couple newer songs that we wrote shortly before entering the studio. Most of our songs start as a freeform jam fused with Danny’s ideas that eventually morph into what you’ll hear on the EP.”

TO HUMANS formed in 2011. They have performed several shows at venues including the legendary Whisky A Go Go, The Roxy, The Viper Room, The Wire, and more. The band cites Portugal the Man, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Circa Survive, Arctic Monkeys and others as influences.

TO HUMANS will be performing at two shows in California this April.
4/12 Upland, CA @ The Wire
4/27 Hollywood, CA @ Amplyfi
