LOCKED, LOADED & READY TO GO: British modern hard rockers Voodoo Six’s new studio album, ‘Songs To Invade Countries To’, is now exclusively available to stream via Spotify, a week ahead of its official release on May 27th 2013.
This much-anticipated outing will be available from May 27th, coinciding with the first date of V6’s European tour with UK metal legends Iron Maiden. The tour will include major festival appearances, including Download Festival, Graspop, SeeRock and TopFest, plus several Sonispheres (Barcelona, Madrid, Milan & Amneville).
The new album consists of 11 studio tracks produced by Tony Newton, mixed by Tony Newton & Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Enter Shikari, Therapy?) and mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, British Lion). It follows 2010′s ‘Fluke?’ outing, which was released through Classic Rock’s Powerage label and mixed by renowned studio engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica). At some point in the future, ‘Fluke?’ will see an enhanced re-issue via Spinefarm…

V6 have gained a loyal following from their impressive portfolio of live activity, which has included several performances at Download, Sonisphere & Bloodstock, as well as touring with Adrenaline Mob, Edguy, Extreme, Michael Monroe & UFO.
Voodoo Six guitarist Chris Jones comments:-
“The album title was something that came about ages ago, but took on another dimension when we heard the news that we’d be going out with Iron Maiden on the ‘Maiden England’ tour. It’s about taking our music further afield, and we can’t wait to play to overseas audiences on this tour!”
Iron Maiden founder & bassist Steve Harris adds:-
“I’ve been keeping an eye on Voodoo Six for a while now, and they’ve produced a cracking new album with real promise. It’s great to support true British up ‘n’ coming talent such as theirs, and it will be a pleasure to have them out with us on tour.”
Steve Harris isn’t the only advocate of the band. After touring with Adrenaline Mob last summer, V6 caught the attention of original Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, who has stated: -
“Voodoo Six are a great band with a bright future – cool guys, great players!’
‘Songs To Invade Countries To’ is released worldwide via Spinefarm Records on May 27.

3. Iceberg (Acoustic Ukulele Mix)
10th July 2013 – Hoxton Bar & Kitchen (Headlining), London
HK119 releases a new single, ‘Iceberg’from her third album ‘Imaginature’ on 20th May 2013. Produced by Mark Dog Sayfritz, ‘Iceberg’ is as clear and crisp as its namesake, imagines a lover as a sparkling, cool surface with great hidden depths.
The single features a stripped back ‘club friendly Plaid reworking of the original and an Acoustic Ukulele Mix (instrument Heidi taught herself to play only last year)
‘We’ve been a fan of HK119 since we first saw her audio/visual work. ‘Imaginature’, keeps faith with these early electro punk excursions but takes the song writing to a new level. When approaching the ‘Iceberg’ remix we attempted to produce a stripped back ‘club friendly’ version by adding polyrhythmic FM percussion and bass elements over a strong 44. We only allow the melody to push back through in the choruses for contrast but keep the vocal and associated processes to the forefront of the mix throughout’. Plaid
‘Imaginature’ produced (with the exception of one track) by Christoffer Berg (The Knife/Fever Ray/Little Dragon/Depeche Mode) Inspired by the world of animals, plants, land and sea, an organic synth-world far removed from the hyper-stylised future pop of Heidi’s previous work.
These themes have resulted in a more organic live show with an acoustic feel developed by recruiting Roisin Murphy and Scroobius Pip collaborator Alastair McNeill and performing with a band set up including keyboards, ukulele and accordion.
There’s still a strong element of performance art to HK119’s shows. Heidi’s handmade costumes and visuals created using on the photographs she took on her travels with the images and sounds of nature forming a tightly-woven world, a physical manifestation of the mental journey that led Heidi back to a happier place and a brand new album.

‘Recruiting, amongst others, My Morning Jacket keys man Bo Kostner and Dylan guitarist Larry Campbell has added a swing and a swagger to his American pop.” Mojo

‘Conjures a sense of wide open space.’ R2
Following the success of his UK and USA tours Irish songwriter Marc Carroll releases a new single ‘Nobody No Nothin’ on 27th May. It is taken from his album ‘Stone Beads & Silver’.
Recorded in Los Angeles and Woodstock during the summer of 2012, Carroll drafted in a host of high ranking musicians to play on ‘Stone Beads & Silver’, and for the first time hired a defacto producer – Grammy Award winner Chris Testa (Jimmy Eat World, Band Of Horses, Dixie Chicks) to work alongside him on the sessions.
Filling the ranks of Marc’s studio band are amongst the best working in American music today, including Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket), Nelson Bragg & Probyn Gregory (Brian Wilson), McKenzie Smith (Midlake) as well as legendary former Bob Dylan sideman and Levon Helm band leader, Larry Campbell – the album marks another turning point in Carroll’slong and varied career.
Several strands are woven into the fabric of the music (“Dylan’s Daniel Lanois productions are the stylistic touchstone” notes Uncut). Folk and country influences and instrumentation can be found on tracks like the mesmerising, haunting, album opener, “Muskingum River”. Other songs evoke the space and distance of the deserts and coasts of California while “Sat Neath Her Window” could almost be a traditional folk song.
Lyrically astute as ever, songs like “The Fool Disguised in Beggars Clothes” reveal a poised sense of poetry and observation, while “(It Was) Lust Not Love” once again demonstrates his ability to fire off a 3 minute pop song with ease. With good reason he has been declared as “One of the finest songwriters putting pen to paper.”
BLEECH STREAM BRAND NEW TRACK “NOT LIKE YOU” FROM NEW ALBUM “HUMBLE SKY”
APRIL UK TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
BLEECH have released a stream of a brand new track titled “Not Like You” this week taken from their stunning new album ‘Humble Sky’ scheduled for release this summer.
Stream on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/bleech/not-like-you-3
The band recorded the new tracks this January at The Courtyard Studios in Oxfordshire with producer Ian Davenport (Band of Skulls, Supergrass, Phil Selway) who has preserved their trademark melodies and taken their sound into heavier territory.
“Not Like You” is the first track to be released from their second album and could well be be the soundtrack to your (most-likely) wet UK summer. It’s a tune devised to quit your job to and take on the road to nowhere in search of that “little house in the countryside…..with my name on it” as Jennifer O’Neill’s lyrics suggest. Or alternatively “fantasize in a mixed-up mind of real vivid blindness”. The choice is yours of course.
BLEECH are streaming this single for a limited period ahead of the physical and digital releases thaty are scheduled for release on June 24th. Catch them on the road this April where they will be playing new tracks from “Humble Sky”.
