Back in July last year we brought King Ropes to the attention of EP readers. The group, who describe themselves as a “psychedelic, hard country garage roots rock band” (what a mouthful!) will be releasing their latest album, ‘Go Back Where They Came From’, on May 22. The album comprises 12 songs, all tracks by legendary artists, some well known, others less so. The first single from the record is the Ray Charles track, ‘The Danger Zone’ – a timely song if ever there was one.
John Grimes from Irish duo Jedward has long shared his acoustic guitar talents with the world, making his playing a part of their live show, as well as on their social media. Today he has uploaded onto the @planetjedward Twitter account a very special rendition of Lewis Capaldi’s song, ‘Before You Go’, which the Scottish released late last year.
Major Moment is made up of two Russian-born vocalists – Andrey Borzykin and Sasha Razumova, and a US born drummer, Adam Soucy. Together the three have formed a truly modern rock band in Boston. Their latest track, ‘Leave Out All The Rest’ is their homage to Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, and has been released to create awareness of mental health and suicide prevention.
