Richie Allan: Heavy Metal Ninjas - Interstellar Abduction
Heavy Metal Ninjas to release new album 'Interstellar Abduction'

The five-man, ten-legged Heavy Metal Ninjas collective return with their highly anticipated new album Interstellar Abduction, due out on October 11th.

"This album to me is more about finding my inner self, as a composer, a guitar player and a person. Discovering all these things has opened my mind to a new plane for writing my next album," says guitarist and frontman, Richie Allan.

Led by guitar virtuoso, Ibanez-endorsed Richie Allan, the band's line-up is also augmented by fellow Ibanez-endorsed guitarist, Brandon Reihana (ex Blindspott and New Way Home), Kora brothers, Stu and Fran Kora on guitar and bass respectively, and Joe Brownless on drums.

Anders Nyström,Per Eriksson: Katatonia - Dethroned and Uncrowned released today

Co-headlining "Uncrowned & Vertikal Tour" to commence this month 

SWEDEN - Katatonia, Sweden's master of dark rock, has released its latest opus Dethroned and Uncrowned today on Kscope. The reimagining of the band's previous effort Dead End KingsDethroned and Uncrowned can be purchased on Amazon.com at: http://www.amazon.com/Dethroned-Uncrowned-Katatonia/dp/B00DRP1R9I or on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/dethroned-uncrowned/id688853493.

Anders Nyström,Per Eriksson: Katatonia - Dethroned and Uncrowned
Guitarist and founding member Anders Nyström commented, "The synopsis is simple and album title won't lie; the drums will be dethroned and the distorted rhythm guitars will be uncrowned! Instead, we'll place the emphasis on the many layers of ambience, with the melodies staying central and the vocal harmonies representing the heart of the album.

"Think of the album like a person's face in the hands of a surgeon, whose appearance is gonna change, but it's still the same person behind that face and we guess an important factor, in this case, would be that the surgeon itself is obviously Katatonia, not a stranger! If there's one album in our repertoire that's suited for a thing like this, it's Dead End Kings."

Dethroned and Uncrowned marks the band's first release on Kscope, sister label of the band's longtime home Peaceville Records, to celebrate the label's fifth anniversary.

The album was funded by a successful PledgeMusic campaign that helped make the recording possible. Fans can still get exclusive Katatonia PledgeMusic items at: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/katatonia

To coincide with the release of Dethroned and Uncrowned, Katatonia will embark on a co-headlining North American tour, "Uncrowned & Vertikal Tour," with Cult of Luna plus special guests Intronaut and TesseracT. The two-week run will commence September 23 in Boston, Mass. Tickets and VIP packages are on sale now.

Commented vocalist Jonas Renkse, "Dear North Americans! We are happy to announce yet another co-headline tour in support of Dead End Kings, this time with fellow Swedes Cult of Luna plus support from Intronaut (US) and TesseracT (UK)!

"Since we have been touring your continent quite a bit the last few years, we thought it was about time to re-decorate the good ol' setlist a little. Right now we are rehearsing and going through some of our hidden gems, songs that we haven't yet picked up or rarely have played live before. It will probably be as exciting for you as it is for us!

"Please note that it won't be an 'old-school' party, but an evening with atmosphere so thick you could cut it with a knife! Oh, and we will probably have time to play some of the 'hits' as well. All in all, we will squeeze out as much Katatonia as possible each and every night, so let's do this one together once again, shall we?"

Katatonia last toured North America in spring 2013 in support of the band's 2012 release, Dead End Kings. The album was the band's most successful to date and cemented the Swede's position as the master of darkened metal. Dead End Kings was released on Peaceville, Katatonia's home for the past 14 years.

Stay tuned for more information on Katatonia, Dethroned and Uncrowned and the upcoming North American tour.

News: Live from Anaheim, January 23-26: The NAMM Show Amplifies the Music Industry

Live from Anaheim, January 23-26: The NAMM Show Amplifies the Music Industry
Dynamic music industry event to ‘turn up the volume’ with new networking events, 5,000+ brands, product debuts, and live entertainment
Carlsbad, Calif. (September 10, 2013) – The global music industry is busy designing new products, dreaming up events and crafting creative marketing themes in preparation for the NAMM Show’s return to the Anaheim Convention Center, January 23-26, 2014. Manufacturers, retailers and other professionals in the music product, instrument, pro-light and audio world depend on the NAMM Show to amplify business, and set the stage for success at the start of each new year.

"The NAMM Show has been called the ‘World’s Show’ by our membership and our team is honored to be entrusted with the responsibility of putting it on," said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. "NAMM’s 2014 event will feature exhibitors from around the globe debuting amazing new products, educational tracks aimed to support our members' growth and more music, concerts, parties and networking opportunities than ever before. It is without a doubt the biggest industry ‘family reunion’ of the year. I cannot imagine why anyone would choose to miss it."

The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) brings back all the much-lauded features from last year’s show, including in-hotel badge pick-up, fewer ID checks and increased opportunities for professional development, while adding even more spots for networking, and great live entertainment on The Grand Plaza Stage for 2014. The NAMM Show’s open lobby will include a greater array of services and facilities for Members, such as the Member Center, the NAMM Foundation kiosk, and a special exhibit from the Museum of Making Music.

New for 2014, on Wednesday night the industry is welcomed on arrival to Anaheim with a block party held in the Grand Plaza. Featuring live entertainment and a selection of the city’s best food trucks, the gathering is an ideal opportunity for the industry to connect and unwind together after a long day of set-up and travel.

Entertainment – Members applauded the increase in live music with the addition of the new Grand Plaza Stage. For 2014, NAMM promises to up the ante with Grand Plaza entertainment that will keep the momentum of the day going strong with, what else? More music! The Venue Stage, located in the courtyard between The Venue (in the arena) and the Hilton will feature live music, but also product demonstrations throughout the show, and hands-on music making events including ukulele and drum circles. Submit bands and performers for the NAMM stages starting September 9, 2013.

Networking – Greeting old friends, making new ones, and conducting vibrant business is central to the NAMM Show, and the 2014 show will provide ample opportunities. Hotel lobby entertainment schedules are being designed to accommodate enterprising, business-friendly meetings that encourage camaraderie among the industry as the day turns to night.

TEC Awards  -- The TEC Awards are now being produced as part of the NAMM Foundation and are a growing attraction at the NAMM Show. The event promises a truly high-caliber show celebrating the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games, and other media. The event will be held Friday, January 24 from 6 - 9 p.m. in the Hilton Pacific Ballroom. For tickets, visit www.tecawards.org.

Registration opens for NAMM Member exhibitors and retailers October 2, 2014. Exhibit space is still available for the 2014 event. The earlier a company commits, the more location options will be available. NAMM Member hotel bookings open Oct. 2 with non-member housing opening November 13. Find more info for making the most of the 2014 NAMM Show at http://www.namm.org/thenammshow/2014.

Christie Lenée: very happy to show off her new album

Christie Lenee

Just picked up 1,000 copies of the new record!! I am like a little kid on Christmas... Can't wait for the release party this Friday at World Cafe Live in Philly!

Christie Lenée: It takes vulnerability to live with a completely open heart, but the more I live from that space the more potential there is to discover. So I open up to the world... Fully aware of what's within, still exploring other than my own. Hope you enjoy the new tune :)
