In This Moment’s 2012 album “Blood” was officially RIAA certified gold, as having moved 500,000 units specifically in the United States, as of May 10th, 2017. This accomplishment also marks Century Media Records’ first gold record in company history.

Chris Howorth (guitars) states: “Maria and I are grateful beyond words for this wonderful achievement and it’s an incredible feeling to know so many people appreciate the music on this album. Right before we went in to create the ‘Blood’ album two of our original band members and our manager quit on us (they didn’t believe) and it left us with a do or die situation.

“We chose to let go of all fear and make the album we’ve always wanted. Huge thanks to Robert Kampf and Don Robertson at Century Media, Kevin Churko for never doubting us, Bill McGathy for stepping in at the perfect time, our band members for bringing it to life onstage and our fans for supporting us thru everything! We couldn’t have done this without you! Much love!”

Don Robertson (Century Media President) further adds: “When Chris and Maria played us the first two demos for the album, I knew it was going to be the special and ground breaking record that they were determined to make. We are very proud to have the company’s first certified gold record to be from our friends in In This Moment. Congrats to them for persevering and bringing the vision to life!”

Global Music Award-winning nomadic folk metal group Tengger Cavalry has already released two new singles from upcoming album, “Die On My Ride,” which is due out June 2nd via M-Theory Audio.

Those previous tracks, entitled “Die On My Ride” and “Ashley,” portray two very different sides of the band, both musically and conceptually.

Today, Tengger Cavalry is introducing a third track into the mix. “Cursed” is a more introspective look at breaking down personal barriers risen by oneself and others. Check it out below.

“‘Cursed’ is about breaking barriers,” says frontman Nature G. “Society has always put up different mental and physical barriers barring individuals just trying to achieve their dreams. You are too short, you are minority, you are a female not a man, you are from somewhere else, you don’t look good enough.

“All these disadvantages that we think we are born with, are like a curse to us. We are cursed for believing these barriers, aren’t we? No, we are not. We need to break this barrier of belief. We need to strike it and claim who we are supposed to be. Cursed, or rise above the curse.”

“Head Bent” is the forthcoming new full-length album from Nashville duo The Cold Stares. Set for release June 16th via Small Stone Recordings, the eleven-track “Head Bent” was produced and mixed by the band with Greg Pearce and mastered by Chris Goosman.

In advance of its release, today the record’s title track comes online and can be heard below. Notes frontman Chris Tapp, “I was listening to a bit of Queen and always loved ‘Tie Your Mother Down,’ so I started writing with that in mind. The music just sounds like bikes to me. I’ve always had hot rods and bikes and wanted to do a tribute song to all the good people in those communities.

“A big part of my cancer recovery was getting my mind right, and just riding; there’s nothing like the focus and peace it brings. The bike and gear head community is so much about family and respect, and just love for the machine. ‘Head Bent’ is that feeling of 80mph wind twisting your neck down the highway.”
