Nervecell just checked in with the following statement about the band’s current label situation and upcoming album:

“We’d like to clear the air about this as we’ve been getting a lot of questions about whether we’re still with Unique Leader Records for North America. The fact is we’ve left Unique Leader Records for reasons not worth publicly mentioning, as it only creates more speculation.

“It was a decision we made ourselves for the band’s best interest. What’s important to us now is that we focus on our new album ‘Past, Present…Torture.’ It’s completed, sounds absolutely killer and is ready to be released soon. So if there is any U.S. labels / A&R executives reading this or interested to work with us, the door is open and you know where to find us.

“Having said that, we are super excited to be back with our European label home Lifeforce Records who will release ‘Past, Present…Torture’ for all our European fans this summer. Cheers!”

Barrows just issued a trailer from the impending “Obsidion” LP — including the first bits of audio from the expansive, conceptual album, as well as the immersive artwork — as Tonzonen Records prepares the 2xLP for its late May release.

The band has also announced the lineups for a month-long live residency at The Echo in Los Angeles for the month of May. Barrows comments: “When we create albums it is much like making a movie for us. Each album is a specific world that we are exploring and none of our albums are interconnected in any way. The new record follows the journey of a man who is taken from Earth and brought to ‘Obsidion.’”

New album “Obsidion” was written and performed by Jim Leonard and Richy Epolito, recorded and mixed by Sean Foye, Jim Leonard, and Richy Epolito. The album was mastered by Eroc from Grobschnitt and features starkly abstract artwork and photography by Alexandre Souêtre. The album will be released May 26th, digitally through the band, and on deluxe 2xLP via Tonzonen Records.

Barrows will play live frequently over the coming months in support of “Obsidion,” having already booked a solid roster of hometown shows, beginning May 1st as the band opens for Brant Bjork (founding member of Kyuss). The following week, Barrows begins a month-long residency at The Echo, where the band will be playing a free show every Monday of the month with a bill of area bands.

My Kingdom Music has renewed a record deal with Helfir, and now a new album titled “The Human Defeat” is scheduled for a June 2017 release.

Described as a new interpreter of decadence, after the release of “Still Bleeding” in 2015 and a tour together with Orphand Land, the band led by Luca Mazzotta took a break to concentrate on the song-writing process for this upcoming new release.

“This record bares completely my artistic influences,” said Luca Mazzotta, “and gathers all the musical facets of my influences from the most obscure Metal side to the melodic and acoustic one. This time the themes will focus on ambient and, through memories, it tells about the battle between man and nature. When this battle is over what remains will be only a regret and a memory. I am really looking forward to sharing it with you.”

Los Angeles / London-based band Die So Fluid has released “Bittersweet,” the debut single taken from the group’s 5th LP, “One Bullet From Paradise.” Produced by Drew Richards, “Bittersweet” can be heard below.

“Bittersweet is an alter ego who came to life as I wrote the song” says vocalist Grog. “Part me, part fictional, she embodies all the stuff I like about many of my fave female tv, film and graphic novel characters. She makes a statement about embracing yourself as you are, thorns n all. She’s kick ass but not psycho, sexy and clever, fun and darkly deep. She parties hard and rocks her talents hard.”

On April 21st, former “That Metal Show” host and comedian Don Jamieson will release his new comedy album, “Communication Breakdown,” via Metal Blade Records. Recorded at The Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, the album’s title and cover come from Don’s Rutgers University senior yearbook photo.

Don explains: “My young nieces and nephews found the photo at my mom’s house and starting texting me how funny it was, and when I saw it again after so many years, I agreed! I majored in communication, so it was just a matter of adding the ‘Breakdown’ to it, which is obviously something you never want to happen in comedy.”

He goes on to say, “This album has tons of jokes but really revolves around 4 or 5 longer stories, which is something I’ve never really done before. I usually just like shot gunning jokes like beers at a frat party, but this time around I tried something a little different. It took a while to develop them for the stage but am really happy with the way they turned out, particularly the track ‘Kiefer,’ which is a true story about a crazy night with the ’24’ actor. Other than that, there’s a little bit of something for everyone on this disc, and I hope people who buy or steal it enjoy it as much as I do.”
