ARMORED DAWN - "Sail Away" (2018) // official clip // AFM Records

Armored Dawn the Brazilian power metal band, has just released the new single and video “Sail Away” from their new album ‘Barbarians in Black’.
“SAIL AWAY” is the debut single off of their second and most recent album “Barbarians in Black” which was released in February 2018 by AFM Records. It was produced by Kato Khandwala (The Pretty Reckless, Papa Roach) and Bruno Agra (We are Harlot).
Armored Dawn has already had irrefutable success in Brazilian power metal since their conception in 2014 in Sao Paulo due to their theatrically powerful sounds, passionate performances, and ruthless metal brutality. Already on their impressive resume is their performances alongside legendary bands such as Megadeath, Symphony X, Rhapsody, Tarja and Sabaton, and their place as the only Brazilian band to perform on Motorboat, Motorhead’s 2016 Miami cruise. Earlier this year after their album release, they shared the stage with legends Diamond Head in a tour across Europe & The Netherlands.

Grammy-Nominated Rock Band Hunts Down New Era, Captures Same Thrilling Sound
(Los Angeles, Calif.) Legendary rock band, Great White is proud to announce that Mitch Malloy is now its lead singer. Malloy, a celebrated songwriter and artist now based in Nashville, takes the reigns as only the third lead vocalist in Great White’s 36-year history.
“Mitch is an incredible singer, artist, songwriter and engineer,” lead guitarist, Mark Kendall said. “We’re beyond excited to stretch our musical muscles with a fresh, new take on Great White’s catalog of hits. Terry Ilous has been released to join his other projects. We wish him the best of luck and thank him for his run with Great White.”
Malloy, who originally hails from Dickinson, N.D., charted his first solo single, “Anything At All” in 1992. His subsequent hits “ “Nobody Wins In This War” and “Our Love Will Never Die” also made Billboard’s Top 100. Most recently he’s been cranking out penned hits and producing clients for his Malloy Master Tracks studio. These clients include Taylor Swift, Boys Like Girls, Kenny Loggins, Craig Morgan, Johnny Gates and many more.
Malloy has been in this is this situation before. In 1996 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Van Halen, asked Malloy to take the reigns as its singer. Although Malloy didn’t take the gig, he further established his reputation as a universally- respected frontman. He’s thrilled to be a part of Great White. He’s not trying to be a “clone” of previous singers Jack Rusell and Ilous.
“I have to represent this music honorably,” Malloy said. “I respect what has come before me, and have to remind fans of where they were when they first heard these songs. I also have to be myself at the same time. When I first heard my own voice with Great White’s music, I knew something special was going on.”
Guitarist and keyboardist, Michael Lardie, praised Malloy for his musical chops and reputation.
“We had an immediate rapport with Mitch,” Lardie said. “I’m positive the fans will embrace Mitch and continue to support Great White. This music is bigger than any one person.”
“We’re ready to rock with Mitch,” drummer Audie Desbrow added. “2018 and beyond still has a lot in store for Great White. Don’t ever count us down and out. It feels like we’re just getting started.”
Best known for their Grammy nominated Best Hard Rock Performance hit, “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” Great White has sold over 10 million albums worldwide, has six Top 100 Billboard hits, nine Top 200 Billboard albums, two platinum albums and clocked the top of MTV four times.
To experience their hits live in concert—“Rock Me,” “Mista Bone,” “Save Your Love,” “House of Broken Love,” and “Lady Red Light”—is to ride an emotional wave of sultry connections, arousing lyrics, and an all-out marathon of hard-hitting orchestrations.
Great White continues to tour worldwide and in the last four years logged nearly 400 dates in several states and countries. The band celebrated numerous milestones that included several sold-out performances, a return to the Zurich, Switzerland’s Rock Im Tal Festival, the 10th anniversary of M3 Rock Festival and a handful of intimate, acoustic performances.
They returned to the classic rock radio charts with “Complicated” off of 2012’s Elation. The band’s 12th studio album, Elation, garnered high marks from numerous rock journalists behind the pesky “Something For You,” the cheeky “Shotgun Willie’s,” and the emotional, Top 10 classic rock radio entry, “Hard To Say Goodbye.”
In June 2017, Great White reunited with its original producer, Michael Wagener on the thrilling Full Circle. The nine-track album spawned the balls-to-the wall single “Big Time.” And for the first time in its career, Great White gave a peak behind the curtain to its fans with the accompanying DVD “The Making of Full Circle.”
Great White is focused on its newest journey with Malloy. They plan on returning to the studio and will update fans as soon as they can. Great White is Mark Kendall (lead guitar), Michael Lardie (guitar, keyboards), Audie Desbrow (drums, percussion), Scott Synder (bass) and Mitch Malloy (vocals).

NITRATE - Real World (Showcase)

Wednesday, June 20, 2018
Real World
Produced By: 
Rob Wylde
Release Date: 
July 20
Melodic Rock
MelodicRock Records is truly excited to bring a brand new, exciting melodic rock band to light. One that characterises everything many of us love about the 80s and about driving, melodic rock n roll.
NITRATE is that band. And the debut album is out July 20 and can be pre-ordered now. Pre-orders will get the lead track and one additional song via email shortly.
Pre-order NITRATE 'Real World' (Out July 20)($15 + $5 worldwide shipping)
British rockers NITRATE may be a new name, but you’ll recognise some of the faces.
Nick Hogg - Guitars & Keyboards
Rob Wylde - Lead, Rhythm, Bass Guitar & Backing Vocals (Midnite City, Tigertailz)
Joss Mennen - Lead & Backing Vocals(Zinatra/Mennen)
Pete Newdeck - Drums & Backing Vocals (Midnite City, Eden’s Curse, Blood Red Saints, Newman)

Inspired by the late 80’s rock scene with bands such as, Def Leppard, Europe, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and GNR, Nitrate is the brainchild of Nick Hogg (guitars/keyboards) who after playing in a few bands in the early 2000’s decided after a long absence from the music scene to get back into song writing again. Needing help, Nick enlisted songwriter/musician Rob Wylde (Midnite City/Tigertailz/Teenage Casket Company) who was back living in Nottingham from the US and had the same musical influences. Rob was able to structure/produce the songs, sing on the demo’s whilst playing drums, bass and guitar. Whilst Nick also played guitar and keyboards.

A year on and with over an albums worth of material, a record contract was signed with MelodicRock Records. With Rob Wylde about to launch Midnite City, the hunt went on for a suitable vocalist to allow Rob the opportunity to focus on launching his new band. Andrew McNeice suggested a few vocalists and was keen to use an authentic 80’s singer, so Nick took the opportunity to contact Joss Mennen (Zinatra/Mennen) and asked if he would be interested in singing lead vocals on the album. (Zinatra’s ‘Great Escape’ being one of Nick’s favourite albums).

To complete the line-up, taking over mixing/drums and adding backing vocals to the album is Pete Newdeck (Midnite City, Eden’s Curse, Blood Red Saints, Newman).
After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.
Nitrate isn’t a one-off project, Album 2 is already written with the same Hogg/Wylde writing partnership and will be coming your way in 2019.
And of course, for such a kick-ass album, we needed kick-ass artwork and Nello Del'Omo delivered big time!
