CANNABIS CORPSE Kick Off European Tour with Label Mates WITHERED
Stoner death metal icons CANNABIS CORPSE are kicking off their previously announced European tour together with label mates WITHERED. The rampage kicks off at the Cinema in Aalst (BE) tonight, January 3 and continues to wreck havoc through 13 more countries until a final curtain at the Temple of Boom in Leeds (UK) on January 25.
Marco DeLiso is a Cambridge, Massachusetts based multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer who uses his music as a tool for expressing a common language. Stylistically, DeLiso’s music is groovy, flush with vocal harmony and presented with levity, bringing people together where they can be themselves and laugh at his silly presentation.
Urged into music by his parents at the age of five years old, Marco DeLiso took to piano, giving him his first taste of music. At school he sung in choirs where he learned to improvise vocal harmonies and improvisation which serve him to his day. Later he started Congratulatinos and after releasing a couple albums, the duo finally departed ways. It was time for a new chapter.

ELECTRIC GUEST RELEASES NEW CHA CHA VERSION OF “DOLLAR”
Acclaimed pop duo Electric Guest have unveiled a new laid back, percussion-filled version of their standout track, “Dollar” off their critically acclaimed third album, KIN, which was released this fall. “Dollar (Cha Cha Version)” is available now at all digital music retailers and streaming services.
“I got sick of hearing the misuse of the term ‘witch hunt’ and the ignorance just throwing it around. I started to imagine a scenario bridging physical and metaphysical uproar,” says frontman Reyka Osburn. “‘Raise hell’ usually means to rebel rouse, but in this instance, I actually mean to devil rouse.”
Unearthing infectious melodies with his soft tenor, life is a beach for Cali artist Yung Pinch. Aiming for universality with a wistful banger, Yung Pinch shares “Beach Ballin’,” the young artist’s mission statement. Surfing atop waves of rumbling bass and cavernous synths, Pinch starts the track on a melancholy and purposefully vague note, emphasizing the comfortably numb life of a beach boy from the wrong side of Huntington Beach, California: “Somethin’ ’bout ridin’ through the city/Somethin’ bout bein’ by myself/I should be ok on my own/I just wanna be alone.” By the end of the track, and with the help of his Beartrap label head blackbear, who mourns fallen friends in his verse, Pinch internalizes his hardships and celebrates his ability to make the most out of a bad hand: “But I’m ballin’/Yeah, I’m beach ballin’/And she’s fallin’ for me.” “Beach Ballin'” is the latest wavy anthem from the 22-year-old artist’s upcoming debut album Back 2 The Beach, following “Over It,” the recent single with Wiz Khalifa.
