Exxxotica Expo New Jersey Draws Huge Crowd !

Edison , New Jersey – What is considered a home-base for the team behind the erotic convention known as Exxxotica ,the fact that they are from the area had little to do with this weekends success . The simple plain fact is they produce a quality product and deliver the goods at a reasonable price . Hence the huge crowds and especially Saturday where it was so packed I didn’t know where to look.

Within Temptation 2022 Live Review

Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation played in Montreal, Canada on October 13 as part of their 2022 North American tour. With a catalogue spanning over 25 years, they are considered one of the vanguards of symphonic metal. Although they have leaned more towards pop metal over the last few albums, it’s hard to stay hard over the years, the band’s focus has always been on Sharon den Abel’s vocals. And Sharon’s vocals were still there, for most of the night.

Starting the set with See who I am, following up with Paradise, In the Middle of the Night and then with Faster, the show was at the top of its form. More recent songs that followed like Entertain You and Shed My Skin received a more tepid response. In between, Sharon acknowledged the LGBTQ crowd base, paid tribute to the people in Ukraine and discussed her past issues with exhaustion and the death of her father. Ballads like Angels drew a large sing-a-long

Closing the evening with encore songs Supernova and Mother Earth, the pause for the encore itself gave Sharon a few minutes to regain vocal form as the finale had a lot of energy. On the whole, the show was fun although there was a sense that the band was going through the motions. Even after 2 and a half decades, Sharon still has a presence and a voice. So, it was worth seeing Within Temptation, even if it’s just for one time.

Opening the evening was last minute call in Vrylnia, a Montreal based symphonic metal band. With a strong opera influence from lead vocalist Ariane Martel, the band played a tight set of songs from their just released debut CD, the Other World. It was worth the evening in its entirety just to discover a new band

State Champs at House Of Blues Cleveland 11/11/2022

Albany, NY – Celebrating what has so far been a monumental year, New York powerhouses State Champs will soon be embarking on the Kings Of The New Age Tour. Special guests Hunny and Between You & Me are joining the cross-country affair, with Young Culture (11/11 – 11/20), Games We Play (11/22 – 11/30), and Save Face (12/2 – 12/10) also joining for select dates. All tickets are on sale now here.
“I’m particularly excited for the KOTNA Tour because of how much we as a band are focusing on the aesthetic and flow of the show,” says vocalist Derek DiScanio. “This will be the first tour where it feels more like an experience rather than just a band on stage playing songs. The stage production is by far the most unique and badass it’s ever been, and you bet the mixture of songs in our catalog (new songs, old songs, and some surprises) will create a wild set list. Best night ever.”
Earlier this year, State Champs planted their flag firmly in pop-punk history with their 4th studio album, Kings Of The New Age, out now via Pure Noise Records.  The album includes hit singles “Eventually”, “Everybody But You” (ft. Ben Barlow), “Outta My Head”, and “Just Sound” alongside seven all new tracks featuring additional guest vocalists Chrissy Costanza, Mitchell Tenpenny, and Four Year Strong.
On the highly anticipated release, the band shares, “Kings of The New Age is our fourth album, the one that we spent the most time on, and the one that makes the biggest statement. After writing over 30 songs, we narrowed it down to 11 that best represent our mission as a band, and sonically, match the energy level we wanted to captivate heading into this new chapter.”
Kings Of The New Age is available to buy and stream now at https://lnk.to/StateChamps
Album four is often when a beloved rock band shifts gears, frustrating longtime fans, searching for a more “mature” sound. State Champs raise a joyous middle finger to that trope with Kings Of The New Age, an enthusiastic and confident reminder of what the Upstate New Yorkers do best. 
Younger than Gen X punk heroes like Billie Joe Armstrong and Mark Hoppus; older than Willow and Trippie Redd; the foursome balances energy and experience. As a new generation resurrects angsty unrest on TikTok and Machine Gun Kelly puts guitars back on the mainstream chart, State Champs double down on the vibrant pop-punk they’ve championed for a decade. They were several steps ahead of the seismic sonic shift. Kings Of The New Age will now claim the crown. 
Derek DiScanio, Tyler Szalkowski, Ryan Scott Graham, and Evan Ambrosio deliver a strong message. Produced by Drew Fulk (Lil Wayne, A Day To Remember, Ice Nine Kills) aka WZRD BLD, Kings Of The New Age is a big album, without sacrificing the heart cherished by a legion of fans.
Starting in bedrooms and basements in 2010, State Champs quickly ascended as leaders of a new scene owing as much to early Fall Out Boy and Green Day as latter-day Warped Tour bands. In 2022, Kerrang!declared them “one of the most authentic and well-respected bands in pop-punk.” Over the course of their career, State Champs delivered their music and heartfelt message on extensive tours with bands like Fall Out Boy, 5 Seconds Of Summer, A Day To Remember, and Simple Plan; three different Warped Tours; and a co-headliner with Neck Deep. 
Kerrang! gave the band’s first album, The Finer Things, a rare 5K review in 2013. Rock Sound and Alternative Press served up adoring cover stories. Around the World and Back entered the Billboard Current Rock Albums chart at No. 3 and made Rock Sound’s Top 10 Albums of 2015. Living Proof followed in 2018. Billboard called them “modern-day pop-punk torchbearers” the same year. They are an arena-ready rock band with the freedom of punk’s soul. 2022 belongs to State Champs. 
Welcome to The New Age.

 Sole surviving member Carl Palmer, in association with the Estates of his bandmates Keith Emerson & Greg Lake, has announced the much-anticipated WELCOME BACK MY FRIENDS- THE RETURN OF EMERSON LAKE &  PALMER Tour.  Launching on Friday, November 18th., 2022 at the 2300 ARENA in Philadelphia, PA, the tour will actually reunite ELP LIVE ON STAGE through modern technology. 

After exploring the idea of a Hologram tour in detail, Palmer (with the Estates of Emerson and Lake) opted for what they felt was a more honest approach using live footage of Keith and Greg on massive video walls alongside  Carl (and his band) playing LIVE on stage. The voice and instrumentation of Greg Lake and the unmistakable keyboard mastery of Keith Emerson will be mixed with Palmer’s onstage live drumming to magically reunite ELP once again. Paul McCartney’s duet with John Lennon at the end of his recent Got Back tour is a good idea of what ELP fans can expect from this show.  

Emerson and Lake passed away nine months apart in 2016, leaving Palmer to carry on the band’s enormous musical legacy.

“About five years ago I explored the idea of trying to reunite the band using digital holograms,” said Carl Palmer. “We saw a few shows of other artists but it did not seem like an honest approach. We were able to use just the camera shots of Keith and Greg, with the sterling audio tracks of their performances resulting in a combination of film and onstage performance that brings back the magic of ELP.”

Here is what music fans can expect:

After establishing themselves in bands such as The Nice, King Crimson, and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, ELP was formed in early 1970 as one of rock’s first (and biggest) supergroups. With record sales of over 50 million and decades of sold-out tours through the 1970s and again in the 1990s, Emerson Lake & Palmer has remained one of the best-selling classic rock bands of all time. The band’s complete recorded catalog, now under the direction and distribution of BMG MUSIC, continues to be a steady force on the international music scene. The tour will coincide with the new BMG box set of classic ELP hit singles pressed on vinyl with reproductions of the original picture sleeves. The ELP ‘Out Of This World, Live’ box set’, on 10LP and 7CD, released by BMG in 2021, includes the whole Albert Hall London 1992 show being used for the on-stage Greg and Keith footage in the ‘Return Of ELP’ tour shows.
The tour is being launched with the full approval of the Emerson and Lake Estates, as well as the various managers who have represented the members of the band. WELCOME BACK MY FRIENDS- THE RETURN OF EMERSON LAKE & PALMER will start in the US during Fall 2022 and eventually play all over the world where ELP toured throughout its career.

LILITH CZAR Announced as Support for Halestorm Summer 2022 Tour

Los Angeles, CA – March 28, 2022 – A force to be reckoned with, Lilith Czar has been commanding stages across the US following her striking transformation and the release of her debut album Created From Filth And Dust. Today she is thrilled to announced that she will be supporting Halestorm and The Pretty Reckless later this year on their Summer 2022 Tour. Czar, who previously toured with Halestorm, shares:   “I am so thrilled to be heading back out on the road with our good friends in Halestorm this summer! Our last tour together was an experience like no other and something I will never forget. I’m also very excited to be opening up for the Pretty Reckless, a band I’ve always admired and been a huge fan of. The comradery women show each other in the rock scene has proven to be unmatched and validates the overall strength and empowerment that exists within the entire rock community. Always fixing each other’s crowns and lifting one another up. I’m so grateful to Lzzy, Taylor and everyone in the bands for sharing the stage with me on what will most definitely be the tour of the summer! Let’s rise together and bring some hell“   Lilith Czar is currently on The Trinity Of Terror Tour with Black Veil Brides, Motionless In White, and Ice Nine Kills. Fans can also catch her on the road this spring performing on select shows with Three Days Grace, as well as supporting Godsmack. Lilith Czar has also been confirmed for festivals including Welcome to Rockville and Aftershock Festival. For a full list of all upcoming dates, please see below or visit www.lilithczar.com.   About Lilith Czar: Lilith Czar arrives with the force of an otherworldly thunder, arising in visceral rebirth from an untimely grave of surrender and sacrifice. Her voice is the sound of supernatural determination, summoned with a confessional vulnerability and unapologetic authenticity. The girl who was Juliet Simms – her dreams discouraged and dismissed, her identity confined and controlled – is no more. In her place stands Lilith Czar, a new vessel forged in unbridled willpower and unashamed desire.   Her motivation is simple: if it’s truly “a man’s world”? She wants to be King.  Created from Filth and Dust, the debut album from Lilith Czar, is an evocative invitation into her bold new world. It’s aggressive music with warm accessibility; huge hooks with driving hard rock—the new larger-than-life icon channels the fierce combativeness of Fiona Apple and Stevie Nicks’ seductive witchery. Lilith Czar arms herself with sonic power, theatricality, and confidence. It’s a sound where the pulse of Nine Inch Nails, Halestorm’s songcraft, and the libertine spirit of David Bowie converge, all in service of a ritualistic ache for a more just and equitable world.   Lilith Czar is more than music. Her songs – like “King,” “Bad Love,” and “100 Little Deaths” – are anthems. She sounds both larger than life and hauntingly intimate, baring all in the ballad “Diamonds to Dust” or unleashing hell with the banshee wail of “Feed My Chaos.” As much as Lilith Czar’s music is perfectly suited for modern rock radio, it’s simultaneously timeless. Thanks in no small part to Czar’s rich voice, Created from Filth And Dust wouldn’t sound out of place in any significant rock era.   “I know who I am now, completely,” the singer declares. “I’ve found my purpose, creating art to inspire others to stand up for what they believe, to fight for their dreams, and to never give up.”   She summarizes the Lilith Czar origin story like this: “When you find yourself beaten down by the world, in those times you can either let it destroy you or let it create you.”    Created from filth and dust, destined to be King… Lilith Czar.   Lilith Czar’s debut album, Created From Filth And Dust, is out now via Sumerian Records.
