The Franklys Drop New Video ‘Castaway’
The Franklys play a mixture of garage, heavy rock and punk and provide their audience with an action packed live show full of energy, frenetic guitar riffs and a swarm of blurred hair. Their debut album will hit stores in spring 2017, and until then they are going out to do what they do best, with the promise to those attending the Airbourne dates to “expect some bad neck-pains the day after from waaaay too much headbanging”. Castaway will be released 2nd December 2016.
WAILIN STORMS Issues Official Video For “Ribcage Fireplace”
Durham, North Carolina dark punk outfit WAILIN STORMS has just released an official video for “Ribcage Fireplace.” The track hails from the band’s ill-omened debut LP, One Foot In The Flesh Grave, and its video is set free as the band celebrates the one-year anniversary of the album’s release through Magic Bullet Records last year.
The new “Ribcage Fireplace” video depicts the gritty, ominous, track with an appropriately dark visual backdrop, the clip filmed and directed by Richard Lukacs of Crone Cult Pictures. Cvlt Nation has taken on the task of premiering the video, the trusted blog offering of the cut, “it has everything the track does – creepy occult atmospheres, sex beats and visceral howls… Hit play below and let WAILIN STORMS creep under your skin…”
Celebrating his 70th birthday last year, Clapton wrote a heartfelt note in the program that began “I swear this is it, no more…..I know I’ve been threatening retirement for the last fifty years, but I didn’t think I’d ever really want to stop. I love what I do and always have done, but over the last few decades I’ve found what I was always really looking for, a loving family who love me just the way I am, which means I can relax and rest when I need to, and more and more I treasure the beauty of that….” The letter went on to say, “Hopefully, I might be able to remember and breathe some life into this old stuff…. in truth believe me, with these great guys to play with, I’ll be having the time of my life!”
Having said that, Eric Clapton announced today his only North American shows for 2017, a series of concert dates at two famed venues: New York’s Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles’ Forum. The shows will be a celebration of 50 years in music and just as many decades performing at these two legendary venues. Legendary guitar players Gary Clark, Jr. and Jimmie Vaughan will be special guests at the shows.
