PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI is a very eclectic and exuberant band with a distinctive style that combines the powerful expression of rock, progressive and classical music into one fascinating entity. Formed in 1971 and celebrating its live debut in the same year opening for Yes in Milano, the band quickly gained a prominent place on the international scene by making it to the Billboard charts (for 1973’s ‘Photos Of Ghosts’), winning a Gold record in Japan while constantly ruling the charts in their home country up until today. Recently, PFM was honoured with position #50 in the “UK Classic Rock Hall of Fame” of the 100 most important artists in the world.

SONG AVAILABLE ON ALL DIGITAL OUTLETS NOW

September 15, 2017 — SONS OF APOLLO–former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force)-have just released the video for “Coming Home” from their highly anticipated debut album, PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY. Watch now here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_1N8kVYfkE

The song is now available on all digital outlets starting today. Set for release on October 20 via InsideOutMusic / Sony, PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY, is now available to pre-order on 2CD Mediabook (featuring a second disc of instrumental mixes), Gatefold 2LP vinyl + CD, Standard Jewelcase CD & digital download. Pre-order now here: http://smarturl.it/SonsOfApolloPS

“‘Coming Home’ immediately felt like the SONS OF APOLLO ‘grand entrance’ as soon as we wrote the song,” says Portnoy. “Almost like a fighter entering the ring. I knew this had to be the first video and first time people see us playing together. The video was shot at Ocean Studios in Burbank, CA, where we wrote and recorded the album. So you’re essentially seeing the exact place and environment that SONS OF APOLLO was born.”

“I assume most people’s expectations of the band from its lineup is for SOA to be a self-indulgent ‘wank-fest’ (and granted, there are three 10-minute Prog epics on the album!), but ‘Coming Home’ is an example that we are just as much a rock band cut from the cloth of classic bands like Van Halen as well.”

The full track-listing of PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY is as follows:
1. God of The Sun
2. Coming Home
3. Signs of the Time
4. Labyrinth
5. Alive
6. Lost In Oblivion
7. Figaro’s Whore
8. Divine Addiction
9. Opus Maximus

An album teaser can be seen on InsideOutMusic’s YouTube page here: https://youtu.be/kPN2DttzlZQwww.google.de

PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY was produced by the dynamic production duo of Portnoy and Sherinian, also affectionately known as “The Del Fuvio Brothers,” which is the nickname given to them over 20 years ago during their time together in Dream Theater.

SONS OF APOLLO got together very organically, as Portnoy explains: “Derek and I reunited shortly after I left Dream Theater in 2010 and we put together an all-instrumental touring band with he and I, Billy Sheehan, and Tony MacAlpine. That was my first time working with Derek since the ’90s when he was in Dream Theater and it was just great to be working with him again. Ever since that tour, which was really just a one-off live thing, he has been nudging me to start a real, original, full-time band. The timing just had never been right, because I had too many other things on my plate. Long story short, the time was finally right to take the bait and put together a band.”

“Mike and I work at a relentless pace in the studio,” continues Sherinian. “The music is modern, but we have an old school soul. What is unique about SONS OF APOLLO is that we have true rock n’ roll swagger along with the virtuosity– a lethal combination!”

But what to call the next great supergroup? “Derek was mainly the one behind the name,” says Portnoy. “I have a list that I keep on my phone of about a hundred different band names, which I constantly have to refer to every time I have a new band every year (laughs). So, I pulled up the list and Apollo was one of the names on the list. It was a word that both of us really liked. We started fiddling with different variations of the word. One of the original band names we were working with was Apollo Creed, the character from the ‘Rocky’ movies, but after lots of different discussions on different variations, Derek suggested SONS OF APOLLO and it seemed to stick. Apollo is the God of Music so with that in mind it seemed like a fitting name.”

Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian and Billy Sheehan previously toured together in 2012 and 2013 as PSMS (along with guitarist Tony MacAlpine), playing all instrumental versions from each of their previously recorded music. SONS OF APOLLO is the next logical progression by adding a vocalist and creating all-original material. The band incorporates the progressive style and individual technical prowess that Portnoy & Sherinian shared together in Dream Theater combined with the swagger and groove of Van Halen, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.

“I have known Mike and Derek for a long time, so when they came to me with Sons of Apollo, I jumped on this straight away,” says Thomas Waber, Label Manager/A&R International of InsideOutMusic. “However, the album they ended up recording exceeded my already high expectations by a long mile! We couldn’t be happier about it!”

SONS OF APOLLO will hit the road in 2018 for their first worldwide tour.

Caligula’s Horse, a band at the forefront of Australia’s progressive rock scene, release their much-anticipated new album ‘In Contact’. To celebrate the album’s release, the band have launched a stunning new video for recent single ‘Songs for No One’ which you can see here:
https://youtu.be/P2Wgxj5-q98

Guitarist and director of photography/editor Adrian Goleby comments: “Songs for No One is by far the most complex and ambitious music video I’ve attempted for Caligula’s Horse – and also for myself. I’ve worked alongside all of the guys for years now and the creative trust involved is what pushes all of us to find and conquer the next bastion of artistic development. We’re also at a stage where we can come in and make these sorts of videos with confidence in making something distinct and memorable, as well as exciting for any audience.

Working with (Director) Daniel Grey was also a treat for me. His ability to turn a metaphor into a story is remarkable in its own right. He definitely brought his best to the table, (and then flipped it).

I hope everyone that watches this is able to connect with the joy that we bring into Caligula’s Horse, as well as the heart thumping excitement that I can’t help but feel when I play it.”

The video was directed by Daniel Grey and he comments: “Songs For No One is about embracing quiet passions; overcoming fear, depression and self destructive thoughts through the mindful cultivation of small things. The video speaks to those themes, and shows that any creative endeavour – even one only for yourself – is enough to keep the world turning.”

‘In Contact’ is available now on CD & 2LP + CD (including exclusive coloured versions) here:
http://smarturl.it/CaligulasHorseIC

“a finely tuned inventive effort that bristles with crystal-sharp clarity” – Metal Hammer

“Those who may have despaired that progressive metal had succumbed to regression will find solace in this, the band’s finest album to date.” – Prog Magazine

“In Contact is a masterpiece…a work of unimaginable beauty.” – The Music

The band recently released a video for the album’s first single ‘Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run), watch that here:
https://youtu.be/lYWD1abgKI8

The band recently sat down at the InsideOutMusic offices in London and talked about the album track-by-track, watch the first part here:
https://youtu.be/c_EbNkcOR5k

As with the band’s acclaimed album ‘Bloom’ before it, ‘In Contact’ sees vocalist Jim Grey and lead guitarist Sam Vallen collaborating closely on the music and lyrics. Vallen comments: “In our creative process every idea is scrutinized, deconstructed, and rebuilt in a way that one of us, alone, could never achieve. We’re one another’s harshest critic, but fortunately we’ve done this for long enough now that our inspiration draws us in a similar direction – we can finish each other’s musical sentences, so to speak. And we’re lucky that’s the case, since In Contact proved to be a much more ambitious undertaking than anything we’d conceived of in the past.”

Vocalist Jim Grey adds: “In Contact has been an enormous proposition – the stories told in this album feel deeply personal, and we’ve never been more excited to share a new work with the world. The sounds on this album are dark and adventurous – but without losing the bittersweet and joyful sounds we developed in writing Bloom.”

As with the band’s second album ‘The Tide, the Thief & River’s End’, the band decided to hang a concept around the entire record, taking it in a direction that would end up being the opposite of its predecessor. “We decided to create a concept album, but one that came from a more personal place: one that would facilitate our creative needs wherever the journey took us” Vallen continues. “The broader concept is based around the nature of art – of what it is that sparks creativity and inspiration, a celebration of what connects us as human beings, the shared space across our many differences.”

Taking in four separate chapters, each one is dedicated to an individual and their own personal journey and how they express themselves through art. “Each of these artists are reaching for something more in their lives, and while disconnected entirely from one another, they are united by that reach: for a better life, but also for something intangible.”

Written between late 2016 and May 2017, the album went through a rapid production/mixing/mastering process encompassing five weeks between May and June. The music felt fresh and the ideas were captured at the peak of their vitality. The music on ‘In Contact’ stretched all of the bands abilities, from the frantic speed and complexity of ‘Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run)’ to the immense scope and variety of the 16-minute album closer, ‘Graves’. This is Caligula’s Horse at their most ambitious and progressive.

The full track-listing is as follows:
1. Dream the Dead
2. Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run)
3. The Hands are the Hardest
4. Love Conquers All
5. Songs for No One
6. Capulet
7. Fill My Heart
8. Inertia and the Weapon of the Wall
9. The Cannon’s Mouth
10. Graves

Caligula’s Horse will head out on a headline tour of Australia in support of the new album and you can find those dates below:
Thursday September 28 – Jack Rabbit Slim’s, Perth
Friday September 29 – Fowler’s Live, Adelaide
Saturday September 30 – Max Watt’s, Melbourne
Wednesday October 4 – The Basement, Canberra
Thursday October 5 – The Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle
Friday October 6 – The Factory Theatre, Sydney
Saturday October 7 – The Triffid, Brisbane

‘The Tide, the Thief & River’s End’ : https://smarturl.it/CaligulasHorseTTTTRE

The band’s last album ‘Bloom’ was released in 2015 and enjoyed much praise for its multi-faceted dynamic and masterful production. It mines influences from heavy rock to jazz and beyond, making it a uniquely enticing sonic entity, and a powerful addition to the high quality canon of progressive alternative rock. It is a unique thrill to watch a band’s momentum build so steadily and confidently.

Caligula’s Horse are:
Jim Grey – lead vocals
Sam Vallen – lead guitar
Adrian Goleby – guitar
Dave Couper – bass & vocals
Josh Griffin – drums

Progressive Rock masters RIVERSIDE are starting their European tour next week and have now checked in with the following comment:

Hello Everyone,
In a week we’re starting the final leg of “Towards The Blue Horizon Tour 2017”, the tour with which RIVERSIDE came back to life on stage. Two sold out concerts in February in Progresja, Warsaw, and the exceptional welcome and crowds at the April and May concerts in Poland and Europe, made us regain strength and faith in the future. Thank you all very much for allowing us to come back.
After the holiday break and a few summer festivals, we will go back to playing in clubs. We will perform the final 13 concerts in the places we haven’t yet visited this year. Please forgive us for not being able to go everywhere, we promise to make it up in the future.
We have been joined on guitar by Maciej Meller who has approached Piotr’s guitar parts with huge respect, retaining the atmosphere and character of our music. We hope that the two-hour evenings with RIVERSIDE music will make all of us feel that we are taking part in an important event and this year will be remembered as the good one.
See you very soon!

Anneke van Giersbergen’s new band VUUR are set to release their debut album, ‘In This Moment We Are Free – Cities’ on the 20th October 2017. Now they are pleased to reveal the official video for new single ‘My Champion – Berlin’, which you can watch now here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAwDw5zXtLI

Anneke comments: “This song is the opening track of our debut album and it serves as a kind of master of ceremonies. It’s both heavy and melodic, it showcases the technical abilities of the band, but you can still sing along to it. That’s basically the kind of album I wanted to make. Our guitar player Jord Otto wrote the song and collaborated with producer Joost van den Broek to finalise it. I wrote the lyrics and vocal melodies.

This song is about Berlin after World War II. The goddess on the Berlin Victory Column was raised to commemorate military victories, but in the song the city speaks to her and is asking her for help to overcome troubled times.

I wanted to make a performance video, one that presents the band as a group that is about music and plays with their heart and soul. That’s what we are and I am really proud of this band.”

‘My Chamption – Berlin’ is also now available on streaming services, and digital pre-orders through iTunes and Amazon receive this track, as well as previous single ‘Days Go By – London’, immediately. The album will be available on special edition CD digipak, gatefold 2LP + CD (including etching on side D) & digital download. Pre-order now here:
http://smarturl.it/VUURInThisMoment

Listen to the track ‘Days Go By – London’ here:
https://youtu.be/Y3rT-X_zgOg

An album preview, including snippets of all songs is available here:
https://youtu.be/xWag98avUQI

VUUR’s full length debut was produced by Joost van den Broek, who was also involved in the writing process. Others co-writing partners are Mark Holcomb (Periphery), Esa Holopainen (Amorphis), Daniel Cardoso (Anathema), and both of VUUR’s guitar players wrote a song as well.

The album’s artwork was designed by Corey Meyers.
“Malina” is available as Jewelcase CD and Digital Download, but also as limited edition Mediabook CD (+ extended booklet & bonus-track) and as Gatefold 2LP on 180gr. vinyl (+ poster, bonus-track & entire album on CD), also as limited coloured editions.
