…So, thanks for stopping by, as we try to grow into a worthwhile Rock and Roll forum.
With that quick quote, I wrapped up my first post on this new site six years ago. Did I manage to start something worthwhile for rock music fans all those years ago? That’s debatable, but damn, these first 1,000 posts have been entertaining… for me, at least…
JANANI’s new single, “First To Fall”, is out today, Friday 2/3. The song is a scorching rocker that provides a great glimpse into what this dynamic Orlando band is all about. We chatted with the band about the song. Check out what they had to share and then give “First To Fall” a listen or twelve.
They’re a talented rock group from Orlando just bursting with potential and are on the cusp of releasing a fantastic new track “First To Fall.” The song features scorching guitar riffs, thunderous drums and rock solid bass, but is highlighted by the powerful soulful vocals from Janani. We’ll share the single right here on release day, Friday, February 3rd. In the meantime, let’s meet the band.
In celebration of the release of their excellent new album, Commitment Issues, Anyone’s Guess threw a memorable party at Orlando’s Venue 578 this weekend. The Orlando rockers put together a killer line-up of local bands to share the stage on their big night.
Sweet Cambodia is a new Orlando rock band on the cusp of bigger things. Their music is distinctively likeable and very hard to categorize. It’s fun music with a definite Florida feel that could best be described as funky-laced ska.
After a whirlwind recording session this Spring, they recently released the track listing for their forthcoming EP Threads: Cutter, which will be a three part series rolling out over the next year. They’ll spotlight the new music at House of Blues this weekend, and they provided the first peek at their new music with a preview on YouTube.
Let’s start with the Album Release show details. A Brilliant Lie will headline this month’s Orlando Rocks at the Downtown Disney HOB, with a show that you can see for a paltry five bucks through this link (Or Free with the promo code “Brilliant”): LiveNation – Orlando Rocks. The band was also recently offering their fans free tix via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, which may still be a possibility if you do not have a LiveNation account.
For those of you not familiar with A Brilliant Lie, this fivesome delivers guitar-driven rock fronted by charismatic lead singer Tara Lightfoot. They are a blast on stage and always deliver an entertaining set. On Saturday, they’ll also be joined by the engaging pop-punk of Hero’s Fate. (They are also a blast on social media and I highly recommend following them for guaranteed chuckles and some damn good rock)
The first single from Threads is a gritty rocker that shows the band pushing themselves in an edgier direction. It’s good stuff, and a track that highlights Lightwood’s voice as never before. Check out “Circles For Sewing” below.
The EP, Cutter, is the first of a trio that we will see released over the next year. It can be pre-ordered here: www.abrilliantlie.com , or picked up at the event on Saturday night, or for you old school iTunes fans, purchased on-line on the 17th.
