Bruise who are based in London, England.
Previously promoted by Deuce in April 2013 resulting in widespread exposure and hugely positive feedback from radio stations and listeners, Bruise now return with their new single Don’t Make Me Wait taken from their album Nobody Else.
Described as being Britain’s best kept secret, the duo have been cutting a maverick swathe through the industry over the years which has seen them perform thousands of gigs across the UK, Europe and US including the first ever Deuce Night, as well as receiving worldwide radio play. In addition to this, they have worked with some of the top acts in the music industry such as songwriter and guitar virtuoso Mark Knopfler, Space Rock royalty Hawkwind, and Country phenomenon Leanne Rhymes to name but a small few.
Nobody Else and their new single Don’t Make Me Wait are both now available to purchase through all major download stores. Details on this as well as recently announced gig dates across the UK throughout the year can be found on their website www.bruiseuk.com and www.facebook.com/bruiseuk
Grenouer who are based in St Petersburg, Russia.
Having originally started out as a Death Metal act and then progressing through various extreme metal genres, Grenouer finally arrived at a very melodic, modern Rock/Alternative Metal sound which they have stuck with ever since.
After settling on this style, the band have gone on to perform at a number of festivals and toured across Russia, Germany, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and the Ukraine. In addition to this, they have also had one of their tracks included on a well known computer game.
The attention Grenouer have been receiving has not gone unnoticed by radio stations, which has seen them featured on BBC radio and a number of other stations across the USA helping increase their profile further.
The band are currently filming several ‘luxury’ videos for album songs coming out later this year, the first of which can be viewed HERE
Their new album titled Blood On Your Face is also now available to purchase and you can find details of this along with further information on Grenouer by visiting their website www.grenouer.com or you can follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Grenouer and Twitter at www.twitter.com/grenouer
Arrow Haze who are based in Belgium.
Taking the energy of the classic hard rock bands and combining it with a modern, progressive sound, Arrow Haze have been making huge inroads on the Belgium and European music scene since the release of their debut album titled Music Factory.
With the band consisting of YouTube acclaimed iconic musicians and including a guest appearance on their album by Dream Theater keyboardist Derek Sherinian, Arrow Haze have already now solidified themselves as one of Rock’s newest band’s to watch out for.
Most recently, the attention Arrow Haze has been receiving caught the eye of Creative & Dreams Fred Cannon who has since signed the band up to the Creative & Dreams label helping increase their popularity even further.
Details on how you can purchase Arrow Haze’s new album Music Factory as well as where you can view their new video can be found on the Creative & Dreams website www.creativeanddreamsmusicnetwork.com/arrow-haze
Powered Wig Machine who are based in Arizona, USA.
Hailing from the legendary town of Tombstone, which is depicted in their new video for their track At The Helm Of Hades, Powered Wig Machine have been turning heads on the US music scene with their own Heavy Western sound.
Having performed at a WCW wrestling event in 2009 where one of their tracks was used as the event promo song, Powered Wig Machine have since gone on to be played on a large number of radio stations in France, Brazil, Egypt and Mexico and also shared the stage with notable national acts in the Stoner Rock / Psych Rock genre, not to mention headlining a Frat party on a roof in front of over 2000 people.

South Devon Singer-Songwriter and live sensation Ryan Keen announces debut album release and its first single // UK Tour announcement to follow
Following another successful round of touring the UK’s Arena’s, fantastically gifted guitarist and singer songwriter Ryan Keen this week announced details of the first single from his forthcoming debut album ‘Room For Light’. The wonderfully crafted single, entitled ‘Old Scars’ will be the first track taken from his debut album and will be released on August 5th.
Having previously been part of 2012’s ‘Back To The Ocean’ EP – albeit in a more stripped down guise, ‘Old Scars’ has become a firm live favourite over the past 6 months and has seen a rebirth during the album recording sessions. Having recently completed recording his album with producer Dan Parry who has previously worked with artists such as Miles Kane, Adele & Lady Gaga, Ryan was so pleased with the new version of ‘Old Scars’ he immediately knew it had to be the debut single from the album.
‘Room For Light’; Ryan's first full length release, showcases how this young singer songwriter’s breadth of musical talent, coupled with a beautiful song-writing style and incredibly engaging live performances, have taken him from playing the tiny room acoustic circuits of the UK, to headlining to over 1000 people. ‘Room For Light’ also includes collaborations with some extremely talented and likeminded artists in the likes of Ninja Tune's Fink and Newton Falkner.
Ryan Keen is an artist doing it the old fashioned way. Constantly on the road, he has played over 200 shows this past 12 months. Touring which has seen him sharing the stage with fellow singer songwriters such as Ben Howard, Lucy Rose and good friend Ed Sheeran who invited Ryan to join him on his enormous UK tour last summer. He was also the only unsigned act to play last year’s iTunes Festival. In fact, Ryan has also decided to collaborate with Quiksilver clothing for the release of this record. A keen surfer himself, Ryan was at the Pro France, World Surf Championships a few years back and was introduced to the Quiksilver Music team by his long time friends Ben Howard and Charlotte O’Connor. Quiksilver immediately offered Ryan brand endorsement and things have progressed to the point where Quiksilver will be actively supporting this debut release with their creative services team, recording time at their SW France state of the art studio and numerous International live opportunities.
Having already caught the attention of the UK media with The Sun, Mirror and BBC Radio 1 all supporting Ryan and tipping him for big things from his previous releases, ‘Room For Light’ should take Ryan Keen to even greater heights. The original version of ‘Old Scars’ featured Ed Sheeran on backing vocals and guitar, but due to his label intervening he was forced to pull out of the collaboration. However, the new version of ‘Old Scars’ has recently been chosen as the music to a national TV Ad campaign and has already garnered 100’s of new fans across Ryan’s ever growing social networks.
‘Old Scars’ is released on Aug 19th Lookout Mountain Records
‘Room For Light’ is released on September 23rd Lookout Mountain Records
