SPICA makes US performance and song debut

SPICA U.S. Bound

U.S. Single Debut And KCON Performance Next Week

July 31, 2014 - SPICA, one of South Korea’s hottest girl groups, is set to make waves in the US. The group will make their US performance debut at KCON - America’s largest annual K-pop concert - on August 10th at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. SPICA will perform with K-pop icons G-Dragon and Girls’ Generation.

 

KCON Ticket Information: http://kconusa.com/ 

 

To kick off their US invasion, SPICA will partner with Billboard Magazine to debut the album’s lead single and music video, “I Did It,” on Thursday, August 7th. The single (releasing on ASA Music LLC), is a first completely English language song from the girls, is produced by Oliver ‘Oligee’ Goldstein, Cory Enemy, and Daniel Merlot who have credits with Carly Rae Jepsen, Shakira, Ellie Goulding, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.

 

"We’re so excited to release our first song and video in the US. Cory, Oli and Daniel delivered an awesome track which we had to release as our debut single. We’re also very proud of our new English album. We hope everyone loves it," exclaims Jiwon from SPICA.

 

SPICA is not your average girl group. First off, all five members (Boa, Bohyung, Juhyun, Narae, Jiwon) have all found considerable success on their own and have joined forces to combine their very talented vocals and artistry. Boa has been a vocal trainer for five-time Golden Disk Award winning group INFINITE and SBS MTV Best Of The Best award winning group KARA. Bohyung is the top vocalist and winner of Korean music television channel MNet’s singing competition “100 Seconds Battle”. Juhyun is an accomplished model that starred in music videos for Queen of K-Pop Lee Hyori and rising star Heo Young Saeng. Narae was a top ten finalist on talent competition Superstar K. And Jiwon was featured on the MTV reality show “Diary Of Five Girls” and in the video for Baechigi’s number one hit “Shower of Tears.”

 

Since their debut in 2012, SPICA has released four singles, two mini albums and one repackaged album to widespread acclaim. Lee Hyori has been a long time mentor to SPICA and has had a hand in producing two singles and two videos for the group.

Curren Caples, Greyson Fletcher, and Ed Templeton join RVCA

RVCA PROUDLY WELCOMES CURREN CAPLES AND GREYSON FLETCHER TO THE TEAM – IN ADDITION TO THE RETURN OF ED TEMPLETONTHURSDAY JULY 31 2014

RVCA is excited to announce two new additions to the skate team – plus the return of a RVCA legacy athlete/ANP artist.
First, we would like to welcome Ed Templeton back to the RVCA brand. Ed started with the RVCA brand before it was a brand and designed the first ANP (Artist Network Program) collection.  ”I’m so happy to be back in the RVCA family. Looking forward to the skate and art projects in the future!”
Consistent with the brand mantra, The Balance of Opposites, the RVCA brand is known for uniting individuals with different personalities and styles, in a complimentary way.  Hence, the introduction of Greyson Fletcher and Curren Caples as our newest skate Advocates. 
Greyson Fletcher, the son of RVCA Advocate and legendary aerial surfer, Christian Fletcher, is one of the most exciting skaters to watch.  In competition or for fun, Greyson skates with zero limitations and flawless style.  When asked about joining the RVCA team, Greyson said “I’m stoked to be a part of the RVCA brand.  I remember when they were first coming up and I was getting stuff from Pat Tenore (RVCA founder) and its rad to be BACK in the RVCA family!  And the crew there is all time.”
Born and raised in Ventura, Ca, Curren Caples is the son of Ex-Pro surfer Evan Caples, but Curren decided to take a different path in action sports.  Now, Curren is an all terrain skater, amazing at all aspects of the sport.  And a great surfer as well.  ”I am excited to become a part of the RVCA family; RVCA is a family that supports and pushes each other, creatively and competitively - That is truly the image of RVCA that I have in my mind.  It feels great to know that RVCA believes in me.”
When asked about the development of the Skate program, RVCA founder, PM Tenore said, “I love our skate team – unique individuals and the true essence of balance of opposites – exciting times!  Austin Stephens, the RVCA team manager and former professional RVCA skate team rider, has done an amazing job of creating an eclectic team with some of the best skaters and personalities in the business.  I look forward to doing great things with these guys!” 
Be sure to see Curren and Greyson compete at the US Open in Huntington Beach this weekend.  Also, if you are in the area, Ed, Curren and Greyson will be at the RVCA team signing at HSS on Thursday, July 31st at Noon, and at Jacks Surfboards on Friday, August 1st at Noon.

RVCA ANP Artist Ed TempletonEd Templeton

ED TEMPLETON ISN’T AN EASY PERSON TO FIT ONTO A PAGE. THE SIMPLE FACT IS THAT HE’S BEEN INVOLVED WITH TOO MANY TO PUT A CLEAR LABEL ON HIM. EVEN WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO SEPARATE HIS SKATE CAREER FROM HIS ART CAREER, THE TASK HARDLY GETS LESS DAUNTING. BESIDES HOLDING ONE OF SKATINGS LENGTHIEST AND MOST RESPECTED PRO CAREERS, HE’S THE SHADOWY CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND TOY MACHINE SKATEBOARDS, WHICH HOLDS A HISTORY WORTHY OF IT’S OWN BIO. HIS INVOLVEMENT IN ART INCLUDES MULTIPLE MEDIUMS AND HE’S ENJOYED SUCCESS IN ALL OF THEM, INCLUDING HIS INVOLVEMENT IN THE BEAUTIFUL LOSERS PROJECT. WITH ALL THE AWARD AND PRESTIGE ASIDE, IT’S POSSIBLE THE MOST FASCINATING THING ABOUT ED COULD BE THAT SINCE HE FIRST STEPPED FOOT ON A BOARD IN 1985 HE’S MANAGED TO KEEP THE FUN IN EVERYTHING HE DOES.

“If you want to do something outside the system, you have to function outside the system.”
– Rob Zombie

 
After months of teasing fans with video clips and mysterious messages, Rob Zombie unveils via Rolling Stone a ground-breaking crowdfunding campaign for his new film “31” at
RZ-31.com.
 
Rolling Stone notes that “the director is offering up a variety of high-quality rewards to people who want to support the movie, including autographed posters, a chance for Zombie to follow a winner on Twitter, a winner’s name in the credits, a lifetime laminate to see Zombie on tour at any show and a gig as an extra in 31. Zombie will also offer selected props from his movies, including Halloween masks and giant crosses from House of 1000 Corpses.”
 
 “I’m crowd funding because I realize that it’s an incredible opportunity to engage the fans. They’ve always been the most important thing for me because, with metal and horror, the fans aren’t just fans – it’s their life, their lifestyle. They live and breathe it, as I do, and any way that you can bring the people that are as passionate about it as you are into the process is a win-win for everybody,” says Zombie.
 
Offering up an incredible array of exclusive merchandise, one of a kind collectibles from past movies, original artwork and unprecedented access to both the “31” movie set and his concerts.
 
 As a rock icon and filmmaker with a unique vision, Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of both music and film.  Zombie has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide, and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $150 million.
 
“Get on board! Get involved! Be part of this horrifying business! The world of horror needs you! “

PRIDES RELEASE NEW SINGLE, I SHOULD KNOW YOU BETTER

PRIDES RELEASE NEW SINGLE,
I SHOULD KNOW YOU BETTER,
ON SEPTEMBER 29

 
Prides [prahyds]
noun
1. The pop that it’s ok to like
2. Innovative and infectious synth-pop trio, Prides, are arena-ready and make big songs
3. They have fans across a broad spectrum ranging from music enthusiasts, pop-lovers and those who have a hankering for an energetic show
 

Rounding off an incredible summer, PRIDES release I Should Know You Better on September 29.
  
Following on from the success of the two previous singles and stadium sounding anthems, The Seeds You Sow and Messiah, PRIDES are now set to release a third infectious single.   
 
Singer, Stewart Brock says,Lots of songs are love songs. And lots of our songs are love songs, but we try to approach them from a slightly unconventional angle if we can. ‘I Should Know You Better’ is about not trusting your own feelings. How can you be in love with someone if you’re still finding out things about them? It’s about doubt and fear and love, all wrapped up together.
 
It came to life after we listened to The Waterboys ‘Whole of the Moon’ - that song really informed the way we wanted to go about the lyrics and melody. It’s uplifting, and very poetic, repetitive, rhythmic.”
 
Proving that finally there is a band that digs up the dark and dirty synth of the 80’s and repurposes it for the eclectic and exciting heights of pop, PRIDES have spent the summer performing live across the UK and US to ecstatic crowds, gaining new fans continuously.
 
Fresh off a tour across the US supporting Magic Man, they are a fantastic live band that own every venue they play. Their upcoming dates include:
1 August – Leopallooza Festival, Cornwall
2 August Ynot Festival, Derbyshire
6 August Brixton Academy, London (supporting Blink 182)
8 August – Wilderness Festival, Oxfordshire
9 August – Summer Well Festival, Romania
18 – 22 August Prides Club – intimate venues around Scotland
22 August Leeds Festival, Headlining BBC Introducing Stage
24 August Reading Festival, Headlining BBC Introducing Stage
29 August – Bingley Music Live, Bingley
30 August – Electric Fields Festival, Dumfries
 
An addictive, dazzling track, electrifying live shows and a band with a voice, PRIDES are clearly a force to be reckoned with.

John Feldmann Scores #1 Album with 5 Seconds of Summer

John Feldmann and Red Bull Music Publishing
Score First Billboard #1 With 5 Seconds of Summer’s Self-Titled Debut Album

July 31, 2014 - Songwriter, producer and musician John Feldmann has scored his first #1 Billboard Top 200 chart debut. Feldmann, who is signed to Red Bull Music Publishing, co-wrote six songs and produced/mixed eleven songs on 5 Seconds of Summer’s self-titled Capitol Records debut, which topped the chart this week with 259,000 copies sold. 5 Seconds of Summer has had more than 11 #1 chart debuts internationally, and more than 23 Top 10 debuts, including a #2 entry in the UK.

In their review of the album Alternative Press lauded the collaboration, saying “point a great deal of praise to John Feldmann, the perfect producer for a band like this,” and Billboard declared that Feldmann-produced track “Everything I Didn’t Say” “glows with meticulous pop production.”

Initially rising to prominence as lead singer/guitarist for influential rock band Goldfinger, over the last decade Feldmann has become known for his work on the other side of the sound board. He has produced and co-written albums accounting for sales of over 34 million albums worldwide, 5 million alone from 2011-2014, and worked with musicians as varied as The Used, All Time Low, Hilary Duff, Black Veil Brides, Good Charlotte and Panic! At The Disco. Red Bull Records artists Beartooth, Heaven’s Basement, Blitz Kids and Itch have also spent time in his Southern California studio.  

Red Bull Music Publishing is also home to multi-platinum-selling Red Bull Records artist Aaron Bruno (AWOLNATION,) as well as Mark Maxwell, who has co-written with Afrojack and 3OH!3 as well as acclaimed violinist and dancer Lindsey Stirling, whose album Shattered debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200.

Lorde to Release Lead Single & Curate Soundtrack Album For “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1”. North American Tour To Commence in September

LORDE TO RELEASE LEAD SINGLE AND CURATE SOUNDTRACK ALBUM FOR LIONSGATE’S “THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1”
(Republic Records)

NOMINATED FOR TWO VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS “BEST FEMALE VIDEO” AND “BEST ROCK VIDEO” FOR “ROYALS”

NORTH AMERICAN TOUR STARTS SEPTEMBER, 5TH

SET TO PERFORM AT LOLLAPALOOZA FESTIVAL THIS FRIDAY, AUGUST 1ST

Multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning recording star Lorde will curate the soundtrack album for the upcoming third installment of the global blockbuster The Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.  In addition to hand-picking the artists for The Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde will provide the first single for the highly anticipated film and album. The soundtrack will be available via Republic Records this fall.

The 17-year-old New Zealand native –who will embark on her third national North American tour this fall– exploded onto the scene with her Number One global hit "Royals,” and has taken the music world by storm since the release of her critically acclaimed platinum debut album “PURE HEROINE” [LAVA/Republic Records].

Her quadruple platinum selling single 'Royals' helped earn two Billboard Music Awards for 'Best New Artist' and 'Best Rock Song,' and two GRAMMY® Awards for ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best Pop Solo Performance.’ She currently holds the record for ‘Longest #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 by a Female Artist in 2013’ and longest standing #1 for any female artist in the Billboard Alternative Chart history.

“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” said Lorde.  “The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, is the latest installment in Lionsgate’s global box office phenomenon based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling “Hunger Games” trilogy and will be released in theaters worldwide on November 21, 2014.

In other news, 17 year old Ella Yelich-O’Connor was recently nominated for two Video Music Awards for her debut single and accompanying video “Royals”, placing her in the “Best Rock Video” category amongst Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys, Imagine Dragons and Linkin Park, and in the “Best Female Video” category alongside Ariana, Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, and Katy Perry.

Lorde will be performing at this years Lollapalooza Festival on Friday, August 1st on the Bud Light Stage at 6:45PM and will be embarking on her third national North American tour on September, 5th in Philadelphia (dates below).

GQ EXPLORES SCANDINAVIA’s DINING SCENE; OFFERS PLAN ON HOW TO DINE LIKE A NORDIC GOD, AND LISTS BEST SCANDINAVIAN RESTAURANTS STATESIDE

GQ EXPLORES SCANDINAVIA’s DINING SCENE; OFFERS PLAN ON HOW TO DINE LIKE A NORDIC GOD, AND LISTS BEST SCANDINAVIAN RESTAURANTS STATESIDE

…August issue on newsstands now

We’ve known that Scandinavia is filled with stunning landscapes and blonde beauties. But how about endlessly creative, proudly local chefs? Somewhere in their frigid kingdoms, a dining scene is building momentum, and it’s about to invade our coasts. Noma, the Danish restaurant that started it all, is just the tip of the iceberg. We sent Brett Martin to eat his way across three countries and find out what we’re going to salivate over next. Excerpts:

Sure enough, Löfdahl was soon heating a primitive dagger of Japanese charcoal with a blowtorch and using it to grill a ruby red rectangle of lamb loin by hand, to be used in a tartare. A farm basket arrived at the table, spilling over with vegetables of every shape and variety, like a Dutch still life or a Thanksgiving centerpiece. They reappeared from the kitchen as Frantzén’s “Satio Tempestas,” a kind of ethereal chopped salad in which each of the thirty-plus ingredients had been separately treated in such a way as to coax out its best self. It was a gangsta display of technique that summed up so much of what I’d been eating over the past several weeks of traveling in Scandinavia: the cleverness, the creativity, the chops, the craziness. By now I had eaten literally hundreds of courses, big and small, ludicrous and inspired. Still, I found my knees bouncing up and down in excitement all over again.
