Post-Punk Band Do Nothing Announce Debut LP, Share “Amoeba”
Commenting on new single “Amoeba”, vocalist Chris Bailey says: “As far as I remember ‘Amoeba’ is about my girlfriend leaving the house to go to work and be useful, and me laying on the sofa feeling dumb and watching annoying news on TV. It muses about how the media decides what we all care about on a two week rotation – sometimes it feels like we all get angry about something for a few weeks until the TV/internet decides it’s time for us to think about something else. It’s also about the fact that making music can often feel pretty unimportant; some folks are firefighters while I spend all my time massaging my own ego.”

Chase Rice Delivers Crowd-Favorite “Bad Day To Be A Cold Beer” to Country Radio
With his Way Down Yonder Tour gracing sold-out venues across the country and I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell already earning critical praise as one of the best early albums this year, Diamond-certified songwriter Chase Rice delivers summer anthem “Bad Day To Be A Cold Beer” to Country radio, arriving today, May 8, with 43 first-week adds.
The song has seen a raucous response during Rice’s live show, including a recent sold-out Pennsylvania stop that led Music Mayhem Magazine to declare “the radio-ready anthem” as “without a doubt destined to become Rice’s next chart-topping hit.” Leading U.K. outlet Entertainment Focus adds that the song “begins with some classic driving guitars but in true Chase Rice 2023 style, this isn’t some vacuous party song. There’s a joy and a frivolity to it but there’s also a maturity that means it fits in with the rest of the album perfectly. Consequently, by the time the rousing chorus (inspired by a throwaway comment from PGA golf champion Justin Thomas) arrives, you are well and truly all in.”
Two-time GRAMMY-winning entertainment legend and Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Tanya Tucker’s new single “When the Rodeo is Over (Where Does the Cowboy Go?)” is out now. She’ll be on The Opry stage as part of an album release celebration on June 2nd, a special guest on CMA Fest’s Close-Up Stage June 8th, and participating on PBS’ Austin City Limits this season.

International Pop Sensation SHAB empowers with new single ‘INDESTRUCTIBLE’
SHAB is an outspoken Iranian refugee living in America who also happens to be an international Pop Star. In a recent Instagram post to her millions of fans about Iran, SHAB spoke out for the first time about how the Iranian Morality Police would harass her beautiful sisters: as no one was empowered to stop them. She remembers her brothers being kidnapped and held for ransom: simply because her family opposed the revolutionary regime. She remembers how pro-Khomeni forces persecuted her father and burned down his workplace: with her Dad dying of a heart attack in his early 50s from the stress that was brought to their doorstep. And she remembers his death leaving her mother with 13 kids to raise, without any help and during a horrifying revolution and social upheaval.
