launch first track of upcoming album

DEATH WOLF have just launched a first glimpse into “III: Östergötland”, the upcoming new studio album, which is scheduled to be released via Blooddawn Productions/Century Media Records in spring 2015. Check out the brand new track “Today King, Tomorrow Dead” here:

DEATH WOLF have moderately added some new elements to their deathly blackened punk rock widening the band’s musical horizon and guaranteeing some surprising twists and turns. The new track with its hard rocking main riff and ominous heaviness is a pretty fine example for DEATH WOLF’s new found variety. On “III: Östergötland” you will find the band’s by far most captivating and diverse material, ranging from the well-known Samhain-influenced punk rock to the post-apocalyptic crust of Amebix and Bathory/Celtic Frost-like blackness spiced up with a good dose of straight-forward metal.

The vinyl-only “Liksjöns Drickare” EP, that was released as a foretaste to the new album, can still be purchase at CM Distro:

The full tracklist and the exact release date will be announced soon.

The wolf of death is on the prowl.

Artist: Duncan Reid and the Big Heads

Album: “The Difficult Second Album”

Released:  November 17th

LBH Records









There are only two people in the entire world who can claim to have played with the Ramones while not actually being tagged with the ‘Ramone’ nom-de-plumeDuncan ‘Kid Reid is one of those people.


As singer and bass player of Joey Ramone’s favourite band, The Boys, Duncan rode on the crest of a wave during punk’s original late-1970s heyday as part of a wider collective of friends and peers that included Sex PistolsThe ClashGeneration X and a host of other power-chord pioneers. The Boys remain one of the best-loved and influential bands of their generation.


Fast forward to 2014 and Duncan’s new group The Big Heads, featuring multi-instrumentalist Alexander Gold, guitarist Sophie Lynch and drummer Ciara Lavers are powering their way around the globe and astounding audiences from Buenos Aires to Berlin to Dublin and back again. Montevideo, from the Big Heads’ debut albumLittle Big Head, has earned Duncan the keys to the Uruguayan capital (the only other musicians to achieve this being Elton John and Paul McCartney). The band has been joined onstage by members of Europe, German mega group Die Toten Hosen and TV Smith of The Adverts.


Following a cornucopia of stellar reviews for 1st album Little Big Head, The Big Heads develop their unique, effortlessly entertaining, melodic brand of harmony laden pop punk with new release: “The Difficult Second Album”.


12 tracks dealing with close shaves in Rio, hen parties in London, growing old disgracefully, and hugging, combine to give a unique view of life.


Live Dates:


1st Oct- The Islington, London

2nd Oct- The Islington, London

3rd Oct- The Adam & Eve, Birmingham

“The Peter Pan of powerpop”: Uncut


“Hes lost none of his song writing flair as he serves up 13 powerpop nuggets”: R2 Magazine


“An autobiographical garage-pop soundtrack; energetic, infectious and charming -9 out of 10”: Vive le Rock

Justin Townes Earle
Single Mothers
Loose Music
29 September 2014



He’s focused, clean, and churning some of the best material he’s ever written  …Single Mothers is densely packed with resonant, lovely, and perceptive Americana. — Consequence Of Sound

He has no contemporary peer — NPR

Justin Townes Earle is living proof that despite the freak show that is modern day Nashville, there are still artists out there who revere the deep roots of the American musical tradition while still pushing the boundaries to create something new and wonderful. — Pop Matters

JTE has made steady strides in establishing a distinctive voice. His snaky baritone has long been a magnetic draw, and his songwriting chops are now first rate. — The New Yorker

“is talent is undeniable  — The Independent
Nashville artist Justin Townes Earle is releasing new album ‘Single Mothers’ on September 29th via Loose Records.

The first track to be taken off the album is ‘Time Shows Fools':

Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in thirty-two short years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell. His fifth album serves as the perfect platform for such narrations.

Entitled Single Mothers, the album is comprised of ten tracks that showcase exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana. As a recently married, sober man JTE writes from a point of maturity and content we’ve not seen before on past records. “One day I just realised it’s not cool to die young, and it’s even less cool to die after 30,” Justin states as he reflects on a life past and his newly found clarity. What he’s created is an album that’s raw, honest and personal in a way he hasn’t touched upon since his debut EP, Yuma.

Co-produced along side longtime engineer Adam Bednarik, Single Mothers shines in a world of pop-culture driven Americana records. “I don’t really know what Americana means anymore,” Justin laughs. “That’s not a slant on Americana, it’s just become a very unclassifiable genre. It’s gone seemingly pop. There are good parts to that, but it’s getting to a point where it won’t be able to redeem itself if it doesn’t slow down. Just like everything that gets popular.” With his heart and soul still rooted in Nashville, Single Mothers shows Justin’s continued combination of catchy songs and authenticity.

The album was recorded live with his four-piece touring band with only days of rehearsal leading up to recording to keep the ideas fresh. No overdubs, no other singers, no additional players – just a real, heartfelt performance capturing the moment. In fact, his songs “Picture in a Drawer’ and ‘It’s Cold in This House’ are only Justin, his guitar and his pedal steel player Paul Niehaus.

“As I’ve gotten older my anger comes from a very different place. It’s more rational and mature. I guess that comes along with clarity,” JTE reflects. Single Mothers finds Justin dealing with past struggles and anger with more ease than ever before. Creating a nostalgic feeling with the return to his signature sound, JTE takes listeners on a journey through some of his most personal stories yet on what can only be described as an authentic country record.
