“One of the finest prog metal releases of recent years. Exceptional” Prog Magazine
Citing influences ranging from Muse to Steve Wilson, Goldbringer creates a bespoke, individual sound with a huge scope. The mixture of a strong sonic palette and tasteful lyrics allows Goldbringer to appeal to a variety of differing audiences.
Ben also works in collaboration with other artists in creating his own branding and media content. This holistic approach to the arts in creating his own musical landscape makes for exciting results, and Goldbringer's flexible approach has not gone unnoticed in the regional press.
Goldbringer are set to release a stunning 12 track album entitled ‘Telling The Truth’ featuring lead track ‘Humour Me’. Described as an "ambitious and epic" with “eclectic time signatures interweaving irresistible hooks and haunting vocal melodies to create a unique musical experience” the album is a cohesive amalgamation of everything Goldbringer has come to represent. Ultimately ‘Telling The Truth’ is told cleanly, purely, and without compromise to the musical integrity of the project, highlighting elements of social commentary and emotional interaction.
‘Telling The Truth’ is available now.

‘Stand On Me’ tells 12 tales, some taller than others, and some absolutely honest and true. At times it’s a heartbreaking, drunk in the blackness, fumbling for a lighter to burn your bridges record – but it’s as blindly optimistic as it is dark.
“London's seedy underbelly hasn't been chronicled this vividly since The Libertines' debut." - Q Magazine
Co-writers and singers Billy Barratt and David Vincent had this to say about the new album, its title, and the songs therein...
“We thought it important to choose a title that represents the bigger part of the songs on the record, and 'Stand On Me' is one of those reassuring statements that if you're lucky, someone close to you might say to you when you feel like you’re out of options, letting you know you can lean on them and it's all going to be alright”.
“A lot of these songs are about that, not letting people you care about crumble and disappear with the rain, it's a positive thing and we wanted to embrace it”.
This album, however, is not soft or mushy – it’s as aggressive as it is sincere. It’s Americana, dragged through South London... kicking and screaming.Recently signed to Swiss label Deepdive Records, this hard hitting, country-tinged record stretches further afield than the debut album ‘She’.
Covering the UK, Switzerland, Germany and Austria, the band will support the release with tour dates in each region.

‘A heady mix of catchy melodies, pop sensibilities and ramshackle, chaotic pop-punk riffing they are not an easy band to classify and could easily draw admirers from both the mainstream and the alt-rock community"
‘The Rogue recall a gallant wardrobe of 1960s heroes from Arthur Lee to Bob Dylan, while imprinting their influences with fresh emotions and ideas. As an introduction to an outrageously good live band you could do far worse than investigate this beautiful and troubled album...'

1. This War Is Mine
2. Stupid In The Dark
3. Apple Tree
4. Bury It All
5. Live For It

At the heart of Righteous Reprobates are the song writing talents of Rob White (Guitar, Vocals), with the excellent drumming of Charlie Kenny, the exciting Jack Griffiths (Guitar, Vocals), and the rock-solid and imaginative bass of Jack Collier. Based in London and Kent, they are now raring to take their music far and beyond! (News of upcoming live gigs may be expected soon.)
The creation of Righteous Reprobates is the culmination of Rob's effectively life-long obsession with music, and the belief that there should be good quality Rock - with plenty of hooks and tunes - for people to hear and enjoy. Merging elements of Britpop and the modern rock of bands like Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian with classic rock from the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, Righteous Reprobates have developed their own unique sound and aesthetic which is very exciting, interesting and engaging. "Give me something sweet and moreish I can chew" sings Rob (in 'My Psychosis') - and this is just what RR have done! ‘My Psychosis’ is the trailblazing first single from Righteous Reprobates, aimed at conveying their aesthetic to the world and giving a first taste of the album which will be available fairly early next year.

The band recorded at Sean Kenny's Ten21 Studios in Kent, and mastered the album with Sean Magee at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Some Video footage was then shot at Paul Collier's Perry Vale Studios. This wealth of experience and the quality of the people involved, added to the strong lineup of the band and the quality of Rob's songs, really shows in the album.
Having already received extensive radio play which has contributed to them being invited to perform at a number of festivals and prestigious music venues in and around London, the exposure they have received has to date helped them sell over 3,500 copies of their current album.
Quoted as brewing a blend of music styles juiced into their own, you can find out more information on Ma'Grass including forthcoming gig dates and how you can purchase their material by visiting www.magrass.net or you can follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/FunkinMaGrass

VERIDIA who are based in Nashville, USA.
new single Pretty Lies taken from their new EP of the same name.
J.J. Francseco of New Release Today recently said about the Pretty Lies EP "VERIDIA has proven that they have the power to really go the distance with memorable and passionate music that can play with the best veterans of the industry. In a year that has offered little in the way of truly stand-out musical releases VERIDIA has come to save the day with what may be the best Rock EP to be released since their last one".
