NEON COVEN FEATURING JACOB BUNTON AND ACE VON JOHNSON SET TO RELEASE DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM “FUTURE POSTPONED” OCTOBER 30TH

NEW SINGLE “BLAME IT ON THE DRUGS”  OUT TODAY

Neon Coven, the darkwave, alternative rock band from Los Angeles, CA, featuring Jacob Bunton (Mick MarsAdlerLynam) and Ace Von Johnson (LA GunsFaster Pussycat) has released its brand new single “Blame It On The Drugs” today via New Ocean Media. The song is the first single from the band’s upcoming debut full-length album Future Postponed.
The lyric video is available on the band’s official YouTube page
Neon Coven is comprised of Anthony Montemarano (vocals), Jacob Bunton (Keyboards/guitar/bass)Ace Von Johnson (guitar), and Kyle Cunningham (drums).
The band’s debut full-length album Future Postponed will be released October 30th.Produced by Jacob Bunton, the album features 11 tracks ranging from songs about survival and balance to emotionally charged anthems of empowerment. The songs live in the space between challenging the need for certainty and, ultimately, learning to accept uncertainty.
Future Postponed is set to inspire, intrigue and terrify all at once,” states guitarist Ace Von Johnson. “The material within runs a musical gamut, in which we as a band proudly exercise our ability to take bold strides in diversity. From dance-pop to goth rock, each song will take you twisting down a new road. I’ve worked on a lot of albums in my career, and thus far, this is the one I’m most proud of.”
FUTURE POSTPONED track listing:
01. Blame It On The Drugs
02. Every Part Of Me
03. A World Without You
04. I’m The New Hit
05. Manic
06. Purgatory
07. Kiss Of Death
08. Spirits In The Hall (feat. Ramsey)
09. You’re Never Getting Out Alive
10. Dead To Me
11. The Other Side Of Nowhere
From Los Angeles, CA, Neon Coven abandoned much of the ethos of the tradition of heavy rock to create an intellectual and theoretical sound, linked to an emphasis on anthemic, synth-heavy dance-music. The band came together when Von JohnsonBuntonMontemarano and Cunningham formed the band as a side project on the suggestion of a mutual friend. “We were all on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise,” explains Bunton. “Our mutual friend April Lee said, ‘you guys should start a band.’ Ace and I had been friends for years, and we both met Anthony on the cruise. After we got back to LA, we started writing songs whenever our schedules would align.”  
The band released their first EP Risen in 2017 containing the songs “Bleeding Love” and “No One Knows You’re Dead,” both appearing in the horror movie Hesperia. The band followed the EP with a cover of Depeche Mode’s “Never Let Me Down Again” in 2018. In 2019, the band released its second EP, The Haunting.
 

The Doors of the 21st Century Drummer Ty Dennis Teams Up With Society 1’s Matt Zane for Led Zeppelin Cover

Ty Dennis, best known for his performances with original Doors members Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and Ian Astbury of The Cult, has teamed up with Society 1’s Matt Zane for a cover of the Led Zeppelin song “Four Sticks”.

While Ty did a blistering version of the drumming Zane handled vocals, bass and guitars.

“What a thrill to reinterpret this classic Zeppelin song and dig in with our own hard rockin’ version. Matt laid down killer vocals, guitar, and bass so that I was able to do my thing and really go for it on this track. I love having the opportunity to totally let loose and play some things that may surprise the listener.” said Dennis

The drum track was captured in one take with no editing in post. The featured video is the actual recording of what you’re hearing. Upon viewing the performance Zane knew the song would have to be released with the accompanying video.

“Musicians just don’t pull that kind of thing off anymore. One take front to back, zero editing and what’s crazy is that this song is mainly in odd time. I wanted people to actual see it so they know it was for real. Ty is on another level.”

Ty is available for remote drum track recording, online drum lessons, and live performances. He plays DW Drums, Bosphorus Cymbals and Aquarian Drumheads. For more information check out tydennisdrums.com

New Trailer Revealed for Suzi Quatro documentary “Suzi Q” featuring Debbie Harry, Alice Cooper and more, plusVirtual Event, Q&A, VOD and DVD info

The Suzi Quatro documentary will arrive this summer – “SUZI Q” – featuring Alice Cooper, Deborah Harry (Blondie), Joan Jett, Cherie Currie (The Runaways), Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads), Donita Sparks (L7), Henry Winkler (Happy Days), Kathy Valentine (The GoGo’s), KT Tunstall, members of the Quatro family, and many more. 

SUZI Q is the definitive, unexpurgated story of the girl from Detroit City who redefined the role and image of women in rock’n’roll, when she broke through around the world in 1973. Singer, songwriter, bass player, author, actress, radio presenter, poet, still touring and recording music – there is only one Suzi Q.

From Australian filmmakers Liam Firmager and Tait Brady, SUZI Q positions Suzi as the trailblazer and inspiration for a generation of women who were to follow after her in the next decade, but whose  trailblazing status was not sufficiently recognised by the music industry and contemporary audiences, especially in North America. SUZI Q reminds contemporary audiences of her pioneering influence, white-hot talent and string of incandescent rock hits, like CAN THE CAN, 48 CRASH and DAYTONA DEMON that were the vehicle for her explosion of gender stereotypes in rock n roll, rewriting the rule book for the expected image of women in rock music and reaching millions of people worldwide in the process. 

With theaters closed, Utopia Distribution will host a “SUZI Q” virtual event on July 1st featuring the film and an exclusive Q&A featuring Suzi Quatro and a Special Guest (available for 24 hours only) in advance of the film’s traditional release on VOD and DVD on July 3rd.

Steve Vai An Earth Dweller’s Return Fathom Gallery 12/14/2019

Photos by Chuck Walker

STEVE VAI: An Earth Dweller’s Return showcases the musician’s hand painted guitars and artwork, created often in airplanes, tour buses, hotel rooms, backstage, and his own home studio. Steve allows his unconscious to guide the process and because of this, he is able to create unique compositions, informed by his unique life experiences and the visual information he’s been absorbing since childhood.

Some of the work is freeform with an almost psychedelic residue and others, have a more hieroglyphic vibe that feels connected to the layout and mathematics of music charts. Steve Vai’s work has an unmistakable rhythm that comes from a creative process born in the recording studio and applied to the visual arts.

Kz Guitars: How a One Man Factory in Japan Ended Up Creating Signature Instruments for The Struts and the “Red Special”

Kz Guitar Works is a local all-handmade guitar factory in Zushi City, Japan.

Kz Guitar Works was established in 2001 by ESP Craft Academy graduate Kaz Ijyuin as a one-man operated shop specialized in building a close copy of Queen’s Brian May’s Red Special guitar to honor Queen’s music with May’s unique signature guitar sound.

Kaz’s curiosity and passion towards Brian May’s homemade guitar paid off when his Red Special copy guitar “Super” model version officially became Brian May’s actual back up guitar in 2007.

In 2016, Kz Guitar Works came to Anaheim for the Winter NAMM show to introduce KzOne Standard guitar, which is their take of the Red Special guitar for today’s modern applications and players.   When Kaz heard the band “The Struts”, they instantly became his next favorite band after Queen.  Soon after, Kaz contacted The Struts’ guitarist Adam Slack in hopes of building a guitar for him.

The two ended up developing KzOne Adam Slack model in 2017, which became Kz’s first Artist Signature guitar.

In 2018, Kz made their first bass guitar for The StrutsJed Elliott that also became his signature model.

In 2019, coinciding with The Struts’ 3rd Summer Sonic concert appearance in Japan, Kz made a second Adam Slack signature model, known as the“Adamoo”, Jed’s Jazz style bass “J-Edo”, as well as a red painted acoustic-electric model guitar which was ordered from by lead singer Luke Spiller, who named it “Cherry Dandy”. 

The Struts Signature Collection Guitars can be ordered in the exact specifications as the artist models or as a custom order in different colors and other options from Kz factory.
