SOTO, the modern Heavy Metal / Hard Rock group featuring vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (ex Yngwie Malmsteen / Talisman / ex Journey, Sons Of Apollo, TSO, etc.), are launching the second single for their upcoming album “Origami“ (Out May 24th, 2019 via InsideOutMusic) today.

Check out the album’s title track “Origami“ here:

Jeff Scott Soto checked in with the following comment about “Origami“:

“This is one of the earlier tunes brought to us by our new bassist, Tony Dickinson, who has experience with giving us singles from the first two SOTO albums, so he is a veteran with us even before joining the band! The word origami is never used in the song but made for a great title and even better album title! It has Prog bits, very heavy moments yet very melodic, what we call melody with muscle! It also features some amazing frenetic guitar work from Jorge Salan, a proper blaster representative of the album!“

The previously released first single “BeLie“ can still be heard here: 

“Origami” will be released as a limited digipak CD with a set of 3 stickers and a bonus track, 180g vinyl LP including the entire album on CD (Available either on black vinyl or in strictly limited coloured runs!), and as digital download. The album comes packaged with classy artwork by Gustavo Sazes (Machine Head, Amaranthe, Arch Enemy).

Pre-order the album here:

The full track-listing of ’Origami‘ is as follows:

  1. HyperMania
  2. Origami
  3. BeLie
  4. World Gone Colder
  5. Detonate
  6. Torn
  7. Dance With The Devil
  8. AfterGlow
  9. Vanity Lane
  10. Give In To Me
  11. KMAG * (Bonus Track)

SOTO started in 2015 derived from the ideal of Jeff Scott Soto wanting to return to his heavier roots. So far they released 2 albums, “Inside The Vertigo“ (2015) and “DIVAK“ (2016), taking a short break while Jeff embarked on the supergroup Sons Of Apollo, alongside Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Billy Sheehan and Bumblefoot.

Now SOTO are returning under the same umbrella as Sons Of Apollo, having signed with InsideOutMusic. The new album “Origami“ contains material that continues to expand and move the band towards new heights whilst following up with their brand of Power Rock.

SOTO will hit South America for live dates in May and intend to be touring worldwide throughout 2019 following the release of the new album.

SOTO – Line-Up:
Jeff Scott Soto – Vocals
Jorge Salan – Guitar
Tony Dickinson – Bass
BJ – Keys/Guitar
Edu Cominato – Drums

Swedish alternative rockers PORT NOIR are set to release their new album, ‘The New Routine’ on the 10th May 2019, their first for InsideOutMusic and the beginning of a new sound for the band. 

Today they are pleased to launch the latest single, ‘Flawless’, the fourth track to be taken from the album. Watch the video here:

The band comments: 

“‘Flawless’ keeps the flag flying high in correlation with the rest of the album. An interesting combination of alternative rock and contemporary pop. Heavy riffs and groovy drumming buttered with catchy melodies that stick to your mind like glue. Enjoy!”

The band’s previous single ‘Champagne’ was made the BBC Radio 1 Rockest Record / Track of the Week, as well as receiving support from other BBC Radio DJ’s including Jack Saunders and Phil Taggart. Watch the video here:

The new album sees the trio blending old-school rock with contemporary pop, R&B and hip-hop in a creative and minimalistic fashion. Inspired by bands such as Rage Against the Machine, Death from Above 1979, The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Queens of the Stone Age, ‘The New Routine’ is direct, energetic and intense.

‘The New Routine’ will be available as CD, LP + CD & as digital album, and is now available to pre-order here: 

  1. Old Fashioned
  2. Flawless
  3. Blow
  4. Champagne
  5. Low Lights
  6. 13
  7. Young Bloods
  8. Define Us
  9. Drive
  10. Down For Delight
  11. Out Of Line

Watch the video for the track ‘Old Fashioned’ (the album’s opening track) here: 

Watch the video for the track ‘Young Bloods’ here: 

Consisting of Love Andersson (bass, vocals), AW Wiberg (drums) and Andreas Hollstrand (guitar, keys and backing vocals) they’re a band that’s been around since 2011. During the years they’ve toured and played extensively through Europe supporting In Flames, Pain of Salvation, and Karnivool to name a few.

Their last album ‘Any Way The Wind Carries’ was released in 2016, with Metal Hammer UK commenting that it combined “aching melody with shuddering depth.” Recorded with Daniel Bergstrand, at a small mountain village in southern Spain instead of their native Sweden, ‘Any Way the Wind Carries’ was another bold statement from a band that defies pigeonholing in favour of embracing a vast array of influences and distilling these into smartly arranged, concise songs.
