Mike Mitchell Releases “I Hear Banjos” Single On Turnberry Records
For Immediate Release, Nashville, TN: With his effortless vocals, distinctive songwriting, and instrumental prowess, Mike continues to capture audiences and carve out his own place in bluegrass. “I Hear Banjos” was written on a Zoom call, with the Echo Valley family band from Western Pennsylvania. What started as a songwriting exercise for the siblings, and a fun expressive bit about Mitchell’s home in Floyd County Virginia has now became the first single from his upcoming album.
Today, he shares the timidly playful piano composition, “Yellow Boots In The Yard.” He notes, “The song is about my backyard and finding imagination in ordinary places. We’ve spent a lot of time there the last two years. It envisions a time in the future when I will inevitably be nostalgic for the days when we were forced to spend so much time with family.” Adding, “The title comes from a pair of boots that my toddler had that he insisted on wearing for way too long. It’s cool watching him figure out the world because everything he sees he thinks is the best thing ever.”

SYK features founding guitarist and principal songwriter Stefano Ferrian (ex-Psychofagist), vocalist Dalila Kayros, rhythm/lead guitarist Marcello Cravini, and new recruit, drummer Mauro Maraldo (ex-Onirik). Led by the nihilistic vocal assault of Kayros, SYK is at once grim and complex; relentless and alluring, fusing tight, technical rhythms with chilling melodies and a dark sonic ambiance.
Alissic adds “it makes me feel warm and like home with its Latin American influence. The super spacey and lush sound in the pre-chorus gives it a really ethereal vibe. It feels like you are crafting a spell, when you talk about female intuition it means you are intune with yourself and the universe, and I wanted to reflect that in the sound”.

William Clark Green Releases Classic ’80s Horror Music Video for “Baker Hotel”
Directed by Billy Cano, the eight-minute clip is brimming with keystones of cinematic spookiness: fluttering bats, theremin and thunder sounds, Halloween costumes, a haunted building, teenage pranks, ghosts, and more. Green narrates the main characters’ every tip-toed move in the cryptic but catchy country rock barnburner, eventually laying down the gauntlet that has enticed many adolescents of the real-life Mineral Wells: “I double dog dare ya / Show us what you got / You ain’t nothing but a chicken til you make it to the top.” The video was filmed inside the actual abandoned Baker Hotel, the inspiration for Green’s forthcoming album of the same name, out on March 25 on Bill Grease Records –

pop-punk royalty MOD SUN shares “Rich Kids Ruin Everything”
Teaming up again with John Feldmann (5 Seconds of Summer, The Used, Panic At the Disco), MOD SUN explains the anthem:
I grew up a scene kid, a skateboarder and a pop punk kid…Its both awesome and hilarious yet confusing seeing the general public and pop culture embracing all the things that I would get torn down for. This is a song that I wrote for all the kids who feel confident in their own skin…Theres more to this world than whats currently popular. I want kids to feel like its important to be visionaries not followers.”
