TAPED3CK’s Ready to Rock You, Really
…Are You Ready For This??”

Debut Single “Hey LA” Releases Worldwide on September 30

Exclusive Premiere on Mostly Junkfood Today:

Playing Viper Room in Los Angeles on October 2 in Support
Los Angeles, CA - September 15, 2014 -This new three piece from LA steamrolls over the straying remnants of the derisive emo trend, straight past SoCal pop punk and hopefully and possibly even more important than either of those, the dance music that’s currently emasculating sales of the genre and the strip that birthed it.

Taped3ck’s debut single “Hey LA” is the band’s introduction to the community and it pays appropriate attention to everything that “rock city’s” best sounds include:  offensive licks, gutteral choruses, big, big drums and an unapologetic, warm groove that can only come from recording a rock record the right way.  Brian Virtue (30 Seconds to Mars, Audioslave, Chevelle) brought some magic to the mix. “Hey LA” drops on September 30 to digital stores worldwide. Preview “Hey LA” here:

Taped3ck is derived from years of friendship, fun and jamming together in front-man Lillard Anthony’s Los Angeles home studio.   

Lillard and bassist Al Walters grew up together in music and have been performing together for years. First in SoCal sensation Putnam Hall, a vigilantly independent rock band that released 3 EP’s and one full-length album “Fight the Format.”  Putnam Hall career highlights include placing their song “To Kill” in 2-time Academy Award-nominated film, “The Messenger,” getting their “SuperNothing” music video ranked number 5 on MTV CHI’s top countdown, joining the Vans Warped Tour and making an EP with multi-platinum producer Dave Jerden (Offspring, Jane’s Addiction).

And then again in the the popular LA local band, Side/winders that Lillard co-fronted.  Lillard also produced their highly acclaimed EP “Drugloops.” That led him to composing and producing original music for global brands like MTV, Samsung, WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and for film, including the film score for “Surviving Cliffside,” which premiered at South by Southwest in March 2014 and drew the support of acclaimed American film director Spike Lee.

Multi-instrumentalist Kemble Walters landed in Austin, TX in 2000 from Jakarta, Indonesia, where upon he joined soon-to-be local hardcore royalty The Rise (Ferret Records, Law of Inertia). As per the quintessential rock tragedy storyline goes, the band called an indefinite hiatus to explore alternate musical identities in the mid 2000’s.   During that time, Kemble joined Juliette & the Licks (Hassle Records, Fiddler Records, the Militia Group) on guitars.  He co-wrote & produced two full-length albums during that time including their last record, Four on the Floor, featuring guest drummer Dave Grohl.

Each member of Taped3ck enjoys the freedom and success of their solo projects and individual creative expressions in writing, composing, scoring and playing out. However success is that much sweeter to these guys when they are sharing it with one another, devil horns and dirty licks and all!

PUMP is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it - and finally win choice at the pump.    
Today oil is our only option of transportation fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands.  PUMP shows us how through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars - cheaper, cleaner and American made - and in the process, create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy.
The film features notable experts such as John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil US; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views and knowledge. Right now we have the ability to change our country’s future, but we never knew it. Aren’t we tired of being taken for a ride? PUMP is the movie that could change that.

Rapper Lecrae, In A Battle For Top Slot On The Albums Chart Will Guest Star With The Roots On His Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Appearance

Watch Lecrae’s New Video "All I Need Is You"

September 15, 2014 - New York, NY - On Tuesday, Sept. 9th, Grammy-award winning hip-hop artist Lecrae released his seventh studio album, Anomaly to critical acclaim. Early sales projections have him battling for chart supremacy, according to Billboard Magazine. Just in time for this historical release, Lecrae will sit in with The Roots on The Tonight Show as a guest star performing his hit, “All I Need Is You,” amongst other records on Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014.  

Featuring guest artists Andy Mineo, Kari Jobe, for King and Country and Crystal Nicole the album is available now. Anomaly has already impressively landed at #1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart and predicted to debut at the top of the overall album chart later this week.


Lecrae, known for his music message that is often at odds with his hip-hop peers, speaks of monogamy, contentment, and faith. While remaining true to his beliefs, Lecrae has managed to garner critical media buzz, release chart-topping albums and mixtapes, headline the highest ticketed tour in the country, draw a Grammy nomination and win a Grammy award for Best Gospel Album.


Lecrae has been praised by mainstream and hip-hop press alike with features in Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, XXL, Essence Magazine, Billboard and Vibe Magazine, among others. Radio personality and MTV News Executive Producer Sway Calloway recently proclaimed Lecrae’s music as the “Evolution of Hip-Hop.”


Most recently, Lecrae’s co-headlined tour, “Winter Jam” was rated as the highest ticketed tour in the country (First Quarter) this year by Pollstar.


He’s performed on the BET Network’s Hip Hop Awards and the BET Experience, was featured on Statik Selektah’s mixtape, toured with the famed “Rock The Bells Tour” and released a mixtape that soared to double platinum status on Datpiff garnering over 500,000 downloads. The mixtape, Church Clothes, debuted at #10 on iTunes as an EP, and charted on Billboard.


Gravity, Lecrae’s last studio album broke industry records when it debuted with 70,490 units sold in

its first week—making it the #1 Rap Album, #1 Independent Album, #3 on the Billboard 200, and earning Lecrae the Grammy award for Best Gospel Album. His previous album, Rehab, landed on

Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart debuting at No. 17, while reaching No. 3 on the Top 10 Albums chart on iTunes. In 2013, Lecrae released his follow-up mixtape Church Clothes 2. The mixtape was hosted by Don Cannon and executive produced by Street Symphony. It featured several artists including Grammy-nominated B.o.B., Paul Wall, Novel, Kevin Ross, Crystal Nicole, King Mez; label mates Derek Minor and Tedashii, as well as production from Grammy Award-winning producers Boi-1da, David Banner, ThaInnaCircle, Dirty Rice, Tyshane and more.


Lecrae’s message spreads beyond his music, however. He’s a guest speaker at several major conferences and speaks to many professional sports teams throughout the year. ESPN noted, “Lecrae is highly sought after by players around the league — and even team chaplains - - for his prayer sessions. Lecrae either does them at the arena or stadium or the visiting team’s hotel, typically starting two hours before the game and lasting 45 minutes.”


Lecrae’s next tour, presented by Live Nation and Premier Productions, went on sale on Friday, July 25th. Featuring special guests Andy Mineo and DJ Promote, The Anomaly Tour kicks off in Houston on October 3rd.
