QUINN XCII RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR ALBUM FAVORITE “HEY, GOODBYE”

Rollin’ Coffin is the brainchild of former Bloodsimple & Vision of Disorder frontman Tim Williams. The new band is poised to release their debut single, “Runaway”, on April 2nd through Static Era Records and produced by Jon Markson (Drug Church, Such Gold).
“Runaway” comes at you with a driving sound that is very different from the aggressive metal stylings that you would expect from Williams. The band pays homage to its early influences by using a blend of classic and indie garage rock, that evokes a 90’s grunge feel with a modern alternative rock sound. Don’t get it twisted, though. Rollin’ Coffin are doing their own thing and have found a contemporary sound that’s all it’s own.

It’s also the first release from the upcoming new Smile album, due out late spring of 2021.

Young Dolph & Key Glock Get Frosty in the Video for “Aspen”

Taking a luxurious vacation to the Rocky Mountains, the Paper Route EMPIRE rappers share “Aspen,” their new music video. Produced by Bandplay, who makes a cameo in the video, “Aspen” is a bright and soulful single about ballin’ out in Colorado’s ritziest mountain town. Directed by Dolph himself, using the Paper Route Pictures moniker, the “Aspen” video deposits the Memphis natives in a spacious slope-side chalet with some beautiful women for company. The two rappers partake in a variety of winter weather activities, from snowball fights, to snowmobiling, and snowboarding (of course Dolph has Moncler ski goggles). Key Glock even makes a trip to a petting zoo to interact with his fellow goats. “Aspen” is the first video from the upcoming Dum and Dummer 2.
