Today, Quinn XCII returns with his brand new single “Werewolf” ft. Yoshi Flower via Columbia Records. “”Werewolf” is a song about having an old “somebody” in your life that you fear running into again, and the feelings and emotions you get when you do,” explains Quinn XCII. “I love the metaphor of the werewolf because it paints such a distinct, exaggerated picture of that encounter. Like a lot of my music, the song speaks on a situation that is a bit more serious, but in this playful demeanor that people can still relate to.”

Out today: NJ duo Sunshine And The Rain’s “Beneath The Stars”

Imagine a fairy tale where the romance plays out in rock clubs instead of castles. Justin and Ashley Morey met in 2008 at the Empty Bottle in Chicago when Justin played there with his former band The Black Hollies. They kept in touch, reconnected a year later at the Cake Shop in NYC and began dating long distance while Ashley attended college in Nashville. During her senior year, Justin proposed, and in 2013, with the help of venue owner and longtime friend Todd Abramson, they got married in the back room of Maxwell’s — New Jersey’s most hallowed music hall. It’s safe to say their future was written.

Nottingham, UK Alternative four-piece Catch Fire are spicing things up with their forthcoming debut album, Karma Owes Me A Lifetime of Happiness, due out November 16th via Rude Records. The record was produced by Bob Cooper and mixed by Seth Henderson and was conceptualized when the band was trying to define and deal with a personification of the notion of Karma, or more importantly its absence. Drummer Ash Wain expanded by stating,

“I have always struggled to believe in this idea that what goes around comes around, because for the most part all I see are bad things happening to good people. It’s a nice idea on paper, and I think that more than anything, it’s a way for people to deal with what comes next after we’re gone, but I’ll believe it when I see it.”

“We wanted to make heads turn with our DIY video production of our song Black Widow. The track is essentially about an unhealthy relationship, only we spiced it up a little by putting a dark Sweeney Todd vibe to the story. The cute, crazy & deranged barber-lady has a line up of men waiting to get their beards trimmed; one of the men in-line has a certain charisma that pulls them together. What she does with the men post beard trim, honours her title as cute, crazy & deranged. So prepare your teacups and press play on the video to find out :)” – ERA9
