Wolverhampton's finest, The Whiskey Syndicate release their 4th and final single from their debut album 'RIGHT SIDE OF CRAZY' on In At The Eye Records.
The single came out on Monday 20th May and is a specially edited version of the album track. It's available to download from iTunes and all other digital retailers.
Ant, Rich, Stu and Mike make up the band, who've been together since 2006.
The album is still available on CD (through iaterecords.com.)
The band have been distributed by Universal Music and appeared on many HMV shelves in the process. They sold out for the first few weeks in the Midlands stores.
You can check the band out here:
They had an amazing response from press and radio for their album, with an 8/10 review in AOR a few months back and a big feature in Drummer magazine. They've picked up national, regional and local radio plays too and played up and down the UK last year supporting their album release.
The band are now busy writing and demo-ing tracks for their second album.
Jagged Row who are based in Dallas, USA.
Taking their name from the initials of their previous band name and then adding Row since Rowlett Texas was the town where they were founded, Jagged Row are now beginning to create a huge buzz on the US rock scene.
Having won the Texas Highschool Rockoff and the Berklee College Of Music International Battle Of The Bands, Jagged Row have since gone on to perform at established venues such as Whiskey A Go Go, toured on the Extreme tour, and opened for Finger Eleven, Hanson, and played with Bowling For Soup, not to mention having some of their tracks produced and mastered by Beau Hill who has worked with the likes of Alice Cooper, Warrant and Ratt.
The band is currently working on their second album scheduled for release in June. Details on this along with further information on Jagged Row can be found on their websites www.jaggedrow.com and www.facebook.com/jaggedrow
Hot Pistol Shrimp who are based in London, England.
Taking their name after watching a documentary about the Pistol Shrimp on TV which happens to be a food all band members love, Hot Pistol Shrimp have been leaving all dirty grunge rock lovers 100% satisfied once they have witnessed their live performances.
With a stage set that includes a distorted electric double bass in the middle and the drummer playing on the left rather than behind the other band members, their shows have since gone on to be the talking point in and around music venues across the South East of England.
Described as being the newest loaded cannon of Indie Grunge music to enter the underground rock circles in London, you can find out more about Hot Pistol Shrimp including details on how you can purchase their new EP titled LSD by following them on Twitter at www.twitter.com/hotpistolshrimp
Written and recorded in her own studio on the side of a mountain in Iceland, the new album reveals the Icelandic pop princess to have a wicked line in understated scorn and a vibrant streak that keeps the proceedings refreshingly off-balance.
Since she returned to live in her home country at the end of 2009, the album has been reached number 2 in the album charts and has now been licensed through 5 different independent labels for release this summer around the world (including the USA and Canada) with further releases due in China and Korea.
Josephine – Last Minute (Out 27th May)
Fresh from her first European and UK headline tour, Manchester's soul-folk sensation Josephine keeps moving ahead with her new single and a string of high profile summer gigs. Josephine's just released debut album 'Portrait' has enjoyed a staggering array of stellar reviews and her two most recent singles 'Original Love' and 'Portrait' have been widely supported on daytime national radio. High profile TV appearances on Jools Holland and Andrew Marr confirmed her arrival as a unique and compelling new voice on the UK scene.
Fuse ODG – Antenna (Out 2nd June)
“Antenna” is the irresistibly infectious new single from UK Afrobeats pioneer Fuse ODG - the man who taught us all how to “Azonto” dance last year. Already Number 1 on the iTunes World Music chart, the official video for “Antenna” has racked up more than a million views on YouTube. With one of the most joyful hooks ever, it’s impossible not to get up and dance!
Tanya Lacey – Now That You’re Gone (Out 10th June)
The new single from Bristol singer/songwriter Tanya Lacey provides a powerful and emotive vocal performance over a hip hop and soul-infused production, detailing the pain of a recent break-up. Alongside working on her own material, Tanya has recently enjoyed huge success writing and working with a wide array of established and developing artists including J-Lo, The Saturdays & Tulisa.
Style Of Eye & Tom Staar – After Dark (Out 10th June)
House juggernauts Style Of Eye & Tom Staar collaborate for this year's summer club anthem. ‘After Dark’ has had huge early support from Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack and Nicky Romero to name a few. Radio One's Zane Lowe, Pete Tong and Danny Howard have been championing the record whilst Greg James has made it his record of the week, calling it this year’s Porter Robinson ‘Language’.
Mark Knight Feat. Sway – Alright (Out 30th June)
Grammy nominated dance producer Mark Knight has teamed up with the almighty lyrical talents of leading UK rapper Sway for his latest single ‘Alright’. First released as an instrumental on Knight’s own Toolroom imprint, ‘Alright’ gained good support from Radio 1, Kiss and Capital FM and was played by every club DJ worthy of the name. But it’s the addition of Sway’s unique flow, vocal dexterity and clever word play that transforms ‘Alright’ into a certifiable club monster.
Peking Duk – The Way You Are (Out 14th
Australian duo Peking Duk are about to shower the UK in sunshine with their debut single ‘The Way You Are’. The track is a serious summer banger with a hot vocal sample hook and guitar-line that builds and drops with crazy energy. ‘The Way You Are’ spent six weeks at number 1 on the ARIA club chart in Australia. It’s also won high profile support from the likes of A-Trak – who dropped it to a rapturous crowd at the recent Future Music Festival in Melbourne - Laidback Luke and Don Diablo.

Electric Penelope - A New Day
Anna Emmins, creator of Electric Penelope is a prolific songwriter, established singer, performer and producer. The fifth of ten musically inclined children, Anna, like her mother, is a pianist and was raised predominantly in London above the jazz club her parents ran, which brought about her jazz and soul inspired songwriting.
The Will McBride Group who are based in North Carolina, USA.
Quoted as being star quality and a force to be reckoned with musically, The Will McBride Group have already achieved more in their career than some acts could ever dream of.
Having opened for the likes of ZZ Top, Styx and most recently the Spin Doctors, the acclaim the band have been receiving has resulted in extremely positive reviews and airplay on a large number of radio stations worldwide.
