    Breaking In A Sequence is based out of Huntington Beach, California and features drummer David Silveria, bassist Chris Dorame, guitarists Joe Taback and Mike Martin. The band formed after a worldwide vocalist search led them to recruit Rich Nguyen. The band’s diverse musicality is backed by Silveria’s signature groove and neatly wrapped together by captivating vocal melodies.

    The band's debut singles "Pity" and "Change Your Mind", released on January 4, 2019, were met with tremendous fanfare. "Pity", the edgier track of the two, has helped grow the band's following exponentially in both the U.S. and abroad. "Change Your Mind", showcases the band's softer, melodic side. The two singles were released as a SIDE A/B as a throwback to the 80's and 90's single releases. "Pity" peaked in the TOP 25 (#23) on the Billboard (BDS) Indicator Chart and TOP 10 (#9) on the Foundations (SMR) Chart. It has reached over 264,000 streams on Spotify and 54,000 views on YouTube.

    #387: "Awake At Last" release new single and announce tour!

    https://youtu.be/PQkx1uZch3Q

    Awake At Last returned with a new single "Bloodline" on April 29th. Produced by Erik Ron (Godsmack, Black Veil Brides, I Prevail), the hard-hitting track contains plenty of angst at the current state of the world. “Bloodline is written from a perspective of frustration, and a reluctance to accept the current state we all live in. The song questions the media, and how during such a dark time people seemed to be more divided than ever, rather than come together. It asks the question of whether or not we can learn from history, or if we are doomed to repeat it. I wanted it to connect to the listeners who couldn’t help but worry about what is going to happen next and whether or not we can rely on the current state of media and information to be prepared for it.” - says the band's vocalist, Vincent Torres.

    #386: Chicago Indy Rock Artist: Oslo

    #386: Chicago Indy Rock Artist: Oslo

    Indie artist OSLO is thrilled to announce their debut album, Great Places, set to be released on May 20th via their label Christmas Records. Self-produced and mixed by OSLO and mastered by Paul Leavitt (The Dangerous Summer, The Used, Turnstile), Great Places is an album born in isolation. The first single “Loma Prieta” is premiering now, exclusively on Brooklyn Vegan. To pre-save Great Places, please visit: smarturl.it/50sxxi.

    Speaking on the new album, OSLO shares, “Great Places was written and recorded during a time of great anxiety, doubt and confusion for myself and the world in general. It’s about confronting the things we can’t control and clutching to the belief that there are better times ahead, especially when it doesn’t feel that way.”

    He continues: “’Loma Prieta’ is about feeling like a disaster, even when you try to do the right thing and be the right person for everyone in your life. The video was filmed by Eric Elkin in the Palmer Square neighborhood of Chicago

    OSLO is the brainchild of musician/songwriter/producer TJ Horansky. After nearly a decade of touring, 2020 forced the Chicago-based songwriter to hit the brakes and take a good look inward. OSLO is both a creative outlet and experiment in self-sufficiency. Learning how to produce, engineer and mix independently was a byproduct of the Covid-19 quarantine.

    #385: The Band LENNE releases their debut EP "A Sympathetic Antipathy"

    #385: The Band LENNE releases their debut EP "A Sympathetic Antipathy"

    A Sympathetic Antipathy is the culmination of a few years of musical collaboration. The project was produced & co-written by Morgan Rose along with Leonard Cerzosie Jr., Corey Lowery, and Jim Taylor. In its various stages of recording, engineering talents include Jose Urquiza, James "Fluff" Harley, and Mike Ferretti. The initial inspiration for the EP was the passing of Lenny's mother after years of battling ALS. Tracks like "Miracle" were written about that struggle. Rose & Cerzosie have a history of writing & recording together and included a remastered version of a song they wrote with The Infinite Staircase in 2013 called "No Amends". Other musicians featured on the EP include Chris Caffrey of Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Justin Taylor of Alborn.

    Lenne has plans to play in support of their new EP throughout 2022. The current band line up consists of heavy hitting, Maryland musicians Mike Slaski, Rob Landon, and Stephen Hybdzinski; alongside Evan Crider ,Taylor from PA and Cerzosie from NY.

    "This was originally supposed to just be a session in Atlanta with Morgan & Corey. The plan was to do a song in honor of my mom. We ended up having such cool, sometimes borderline morbid chemistry. Funny fact? The original song that started this whole thing didn't even make the EP. We went along this darker, heavier path while still maintaining all the melodies we initially created" says Leonard Cerzosie Jr.

    #384: Orange County's "Bleed the Sky"- New Singer, New Single, New Direction!

    Orange County's Bleed the Sky have announced that their new vocalist is Rudy Flores. The band released their brand new single "Rot in Flesh" along with an accompanying music video.

    "The lyrics of 'Rot in Flesh' represent the choice to overcome negativity from one's own toxic thoughts and others trying to bring you down. Sonically, this   song hints at Bleed the Sky's new direction and what people can expect from our upcoming releases. This is just the beginning. We are very excited to show you what else this new line-up has to offer," says the band.

    Formed in 2003, California based metal band Bleed The Sky are back with a new single as well as a new frontman. Following two well received albums   released on Nuclear Blast Records, Paradigm in Entropy (2005) and Murder the Dance (2008), the band once again redefined who they are with the Art Is War Records release This Way Lies Madness (2020) and the single The Devil Will See You Now (2020). The lineup consists of Austin D’Amond (drums), Wayne Miller (guitars), Kevin Garcia (guitars) and David Culbert (bass guitar). Now joined by Rudy Flores (vocals). Bleed The Sky returns with the same intensity that is familiar to fans of their previous albums, as well as a new brutality that they are excited to share with the metal community.
