Source

Source Papa Roach I don’t know what to say; are these guys still alive? Even though they released an album in 2012 you don’t hear much about Papa Roach.

Leeds is a city with a vibrant music scene: buzzing sounds, great bands, and a community ethos. ZME chats to Happy Daggers about their home town and the music they make there. You have quite a mix of styles going on, yet all seem to blend well. Are there any particular influences?

ALEX DAY-BREAKING THE MOULD

Alex Day

Today, I am going to talk about a successful musician from Essex. Now, you may think that there is nothing particularly original, innovative or special about that. But let me tell you, Alex Day is different. On paper, many record labels would have sneered at his chances of success. He promotes his music through YouTube, allows fans to use and listen to it for free on his website, releases multiple songs at the same time,…

Recording right now with Justin Pizzoferrato (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.), the group also expects to release its first full-length album, which is…

In the back room of the unassuming San Pedro Brewing Company, while the chilly Southern Californian day wore on, KiLR (pronounced KY-ler) was in the process of launching/promoting their first major music video  and conducting a 48-hour drive for 100,000 views.

Just upstate from the birthing grounds of such great thrash pioneers as Slayer and Metallica comes Archea, a rather rambunctious young group with a definite and ferocious sound. Coming straight out of Pleasant Hill, California, (an otherwise quiet town dwindling in the glare of the lights of San Francisco), Archea can…
