Heavy Metal / Industrial artist THE HATE CLUB will release their new EP titled DEATH OF THE PROTAGONIST on July 17, 2020 via The Label Group/INgrooves. "DEATH OF THE PROTAGONIST signals new growth of THC as an artist and a band, thus moving toward heavier sound for a specific reason. Compared to previous EPs and releases DOTP aims at releasing inner tension and turmoil that is tearing the world and society apart today. There's no need for words to explain how you feel, but rather for energy of music to speak for itself" says Alex Poe. Grotesque and fearless, satyrical and anxious the amalgamation of his musical prowess crashes a cascade of ramming distortion, raw vocals and signature production style onto listeners heads. THC’s songwriting genuinity and take-it-or-leave-it approach nurtured a die-hard international fanbase in the underground community. Drawing his inspiration from all facets of contemporary genres and classics, the bipolar, psychotic identity of The Hate Club has been often paired with the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Led Zeppelin & Gorillaz. Referencing to his fanbase as The Legion and encouraging a sense of unity and acceptance, the movement is quickly gaining traction across prominent realms of social media. Making his way “across the pond” Alex Poe embarked on a treacherous journey to conquer West. Born within 100 miles of Chernobyl, Alex calls the stronghold of Kyiv his home. Displaying high music potential from the young age THC started pursuing guitar as means of his musical expression. Later, after moving to the US and anchoring in Los Angeles, electronic & metal both played a huge role in developing signature The Hate Club sound.
Mastering the art of electronic production and working on “pipes” opened new doors for radical musical freedom. Frequently criticized for his confrontational nature and aggressive sound, Alex states that, - “music serves as a barrier-breaking force of empowerment for the disenfranchised. By means of music we strive to achieve individual’s catharsis of triumphing over yourself.” First surfacing under the new moniker in 2017, THC organized 2 tours across the US in support of his EPs Space Born and Misfit. Making several consecutive releases including an Unplugged EP pt. 1, several singles and music video, The Hate Club caught attention of a number of online publications nationwide and got interviewed on Vigilantes Radio Podcast hosted by Dini Mussolini, performing a cappella in front of 22,000 listeners. Experimenting in more than one media, The Hate Club is hosting his own podcast House of the DVNT which sole purpose is to uncover upcoming music artists and let them shine through what Alex refers to as “the most non-conformist podcast on Earth”. Being an integral part of the music community The Hate Club cites musical collaboration as a prime form of artistic growth. Aa a result, several collaborations with other artists are springing from under THC’s belt, namely Sana From Hell, Solomon Grey and Mikey Rotten.
Heavily representing the DIY aesthetic and taking an aggressive stance on the expression of self, The Hate Club set to architect his debut album - Principles of Mortality, which is expected to be released in early 2020.
“I think of music as a painting - it tells a story and has a hidden meaning, an argot. And while the song stays one, ways of hearing it are incalculable" says Alex.
All songs written, recorded, instruments played, produced and engineered by Alex Poe

Econoline Crush known for the radio hits "All That You Are", "You Don't Know What It's Like", "Make It Right" and "Dirty" is BACK after a decade long hiatus! Econoline Crush will release their first single titled "Get Out of the Way" on July 24, 2020 through emerging indie label AMALIEN RECORDS.
Album + Digital + Merch Pre-Orders available NOW at:
"Get Out of the Way" Pre-save link: https://ffm.to/getoutoftheway
Canadian rock veterans Econoline Crush, fronted by Trevor Hurst along with talented members Ziggy Sigmund (guitarist, 1997-2002, 2009-present) and drummer Dayvid Swart (Todd Kerns Band), are back after recording their first full-length album in over a decade. Delivering their first single “Get Out of the Way” the rock alumni are ready to hit the stage again with an arsenal of new songs released on indie start-up Amalien Records, and fresh takes on their chart topping hits.
“We decided to re-record GET OUT OF THE WAY (2008) to launch our deal with Amalien Records. We think the song suits the times we live in, and helps amplify the voices of those trying to build a better world for everyone. It just felt like the perfect song for this moment in time" says Trevor.
Despite their absence the sound of Econoline Crush is still there, but now with a more transformed and enhanced resonance.
“There's still the industrial sound,” adds Trevor, “but it's drifted towards more classic elements of rock. We're evolving into a more organic direction. The songs are taking a lead role.”
Adaptable as well, the band is a full-on rock assault, with gritty guitars and crashing percussion, but they can also switch to acoustic, soulful rock in a moment’s notice. Entering a new era of production as well, Econoline Crush takes classic rock, industrial and electronica, and melds it to create something both unique and appealing to their legacy of fans, and new music fans of today.
Along with the release of the new album and single, diligent lead vocalist Trevor Hurst worked tirelessly on an upcoming documentary film, slated for release in 2021. Flatlander, sheds a light on what the singer has been doing in the years between live performances and songwriting. It’s an admirable journey from a man who has toured with Alice Cooper, opened for KISS at New York’s Madison Square Garden and headlined his own tours, but Trevor Hurst is now also a registered psychiatric nurse. Reconciling the pursuit of rock stardom with the desire to connect with people and make a difference, Hurst and Econoline Crush are reemerging now as a revitalized band, with a deeper sense of purpose.
On the latest efforts by the band, Hurst says “I realized what a great gift was bestowed upon us as a band and as individuals, to have this ability to make music and to entertain. I don't take this for granted. That's why everybody in the band feels this is not an opportunity to waste.”
Multi-Platinum Selling Rock Band SEETHER
Returns With First New Album In Three Years
(“If You Want Peace, Prepare for War”)
To Be Released August 28th Via Fantasy Records
Video For First Single “Dangerous” Premieres Today
Via Revolver HERE
Preorder The New Album HERE
June 24th, 2020 - Three years after releasing their critically acclaimed record Poison The Parish, multi-platinum selling rock band SEETHER announces their highly anticipated return with the new album, Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum out August 28th, 2020 via Fantasy Records. Translating to “If You Want Peace, Prepare For War,” the album features 13 new tracks, a primal mix of euphoria and misery, undoubtedly some of the strongest material of SEETHER’s illustrious career, including the beautifully tormented first single “Dangerous” released today alongside an animated music video created by noted Turkish director Mertcan Mertbilek (Santana, Ray Charles, Ravi Shankar, Elvis Costello).
See the video for “Dangerous” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPdS8Ij_LuA&feature=youtu.be
“These songs are carefully crafted to nestle in your ears like a tiny velvet rabbit clutching a switch-blade,” says front man Shaun Morgan, his flair for vivid imagery on full display. That bold openness strikes a chord musically and lyrically on songs that explore and eviscerate demons both personal and cultural. “This whole album is kind of me going through that process. I’m exposing myself to a degree I’m not normally comfortable with,” he says. “But I think it’s OK. I’m proud to be a little bit more vulnerable on this album.”
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum, SEETHER’s eighth studio album, was produced by Morgan and engineered and mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI) in Nashville from December 2019 through January 2020. The band is joined on the album by newest member, Corey Lowery (ex-guitarist/vocalist for Saint Asonia and Stuck Mojo) Morgan’s friend of 16 years, who also assistant-engineered the album. “Corey has a lot of experience and is an inspiring guitarist as well; he’s the older brother I’ve always wanted,” Morgan adds. SEETHER’s rock-solid rhythm section is bassist and founding member Dale Stewart, and drummer John Humphrey (who joined in 2003).
The push-pull on Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum is as dynamic as it is memorable as Morgan brings his intimate singer-songwriter sensibility to the band’s heavy rock grooves. Drawing on influences including the dark and raw honesty of grunge’s epic guitar attack and the South African underground punk and metal that Morgan (and Stewart) grew up on, SEETHER’s sonic brew is unmistakable and timeless.
The new album’s haunting, unforgettable “Dangerous” is an instant standout. While the band prefers to leave “Dangerous” open to interpretation, lyrics like, “It’s so dangerous all this blamelessness / and I feel like I lost all the good I’ve known” are a passionate and pointed indictment of self and society at large. “Beg,” where Morgan snarls, “See hope fading out of your eyes / This time the pain is going to feel unreal,” is similarly unrelenting. The chorus’s point-blank demand, “beg, motherfucker!” is a primal rock rallying cry. Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum’s brutal but beautiful lyrics infuse these songs with cathartic urgency like this from the track “Failure”: “I live my life like a broken-hearted failure / I’m trying to shed some light on the scars left by the razors.”
With touring paused, the ever-active SEETHER has posted a series of on-line sessions via social media featuring band members at home, including livestream Q&As and acoustic performances from Shaun Morgan, cooking instructionals with Dale Stewart, crossfit workouts with Corey Lowery and drumming playthroughs with John Humphrey. The “hanging at home” digital series can be seen at FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE CHANNEL and TWITCH.
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum will be available in CD, vinyl and digital download formats.

What do they say about Jason Hartless? Hard work and dedication is being recognized by members of KISS, STYX, Cheap Trick, Ringo Starr Band, Alice Cooper Band, Blue Oyster Cult, Queensryche, Mountain, Manowar, Ace Frehley Band, Warrant, Sponge, Cavo and Ted Nugent, to name just a few. These rock talents along with other music legends, entertainment industry professionals and NHL players joined in to create a congratulatory video for one of the world’s hottest up-and-coming drummers for his college graduation from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, which was cancelled due to the COVID 19 Pandemic.
The rising star that is touring/session drumming phenom Jason Hartless (Ted Nugent, Joe Lynn Turner, Mitch Ryder) had just graduated this past May in 2020 from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, with his Bachelor’s degree in Entertainment Business. His commencement ceremony was unfortunately cancelled with no reschedule date and with the Nugent summer tour moved until 2021, it was a depressing time for the young quarantined drummer.
When word spread throughout the entertainment industry, many jumped at the chance to wish their young friend a very happy graduation and to extend well wishes, as well as praise him on completing college while touring and recording almost non-stop. Jason’s drum-tech, Randy Walker, along with his parents, collected the videos and then edited them together for a social media graduation celebration that was over one hour long. Attached is the condensed version. After viewing the video Jason simply said, “I have the greatest job in the world!”
Jason is continuing his education at Berklee College of Music to complete his Master’s Degree in Business and is also looking forward to touring and sessions as soon as the pandemic is over.
Please get in touch if you would like to interview Jason Hartless.
