NEONFLY Launch New Video 'Better Angels'

Artist: 
Tuesday, March 3, 2015
Categories: 
 
Brand new video for NEONFLY's ‘Better Angels’ single, shot on a Cyprus beach featuring Two Team GB Olympian gymnasts, unveiled.
 
‘‘Strangers In Paradise’ is so buoyed by steely self-belief and winningly infectious choruses, that you could imagine them beating the odds and taking slick songs like ‘Better Angels’ and ‘Heart Of The Sun’ to the huge venues they were clearly written for. KKKK” (Olly Thomas, Kerrang! December 12th 2014).
 
“It’s been three years since London’s Neonfly unleashed their fine debut ‘Outshine The Sun’ and the band have been no slouches in that time, racking up tours with the likes of Magnum and Dragonforce. The touring has raised their profile exponentially, to the point where their sophomore effort, ‘Strangers In Paradise’, is something I’ve been looking forward to, and it doesn’t disappoint. What I like about Neonfly is that they show a fair degree of dexterity on their songwriting, taking more from the worlds of hard rock and AOR than fantasy power metal Everytthing here is an improvement on their debut, from Willy Norton’s clear vocals to the songwriting itself, which is of the highest order. Opener ‘Whispered Dreams’ bristles with a hook you will never forget, while ‘Better Angels’ is a melodic hard rock attack that will win hearts the world over. 8/10” (Bruce Turnbull, Powerplay, December 2014)
 
“‘Better Angels’ is a sublime, immensely memorable slice of commercial power metal” (Classic Rock - Heavy Rotation - February 2015)
 
In the wake of rave reviews of their superlative new LP, ‘Strangers In Paradise’, hard driving melodic metal rockers Neonfly are releasing (album standout song) ‘Better Angels’, as a digital single, coupled with the exclusive b-side ‘Falling Star (Piano Version)’, [featuring the tinkling ivories of guest keyboard player Günter Werno from Vanden Plas], on Inner Wound Records on March 2nd, via all digital platforms.
 
Neonfly have today unveiled the video for ‘Better Angels’, shot on location in December 2014 on the beautiful coastline of South Western Cyprus, against the dramatic backdrop of the wreck of merchant vessel Edro III. Alongside the band, the video features the outstanding gymnastic talents of 2012’s Team GB Olympians Lynne Hutchison and Jade Faulkner, who were part of the Rhythmic Gymnast Team. The video showcases the stunning athleticism, grace, vivacity and poise of these awesome athletes, all subtly woven into the seascape narrative. Check it out at www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FumJoTCjGA
 
Neonfly, who comprise Willy Norton on vocals, Frederick Thunder on guitars, Andy Midgley on guitars, Paul Miller on bass and Boris Le Gal on drums, have already carved out a formidable live reputation following a slew of eyebrow-raising high profile support slots with the likes of Alice Cooper, Magnum, H.E.A.T, and Dragonforce. A band very much ‘on the up’, Neonfly are now poised to win over a whole host of new fans with the release of ‘Better Angels’, a “sublime, immensely memorable”, immediately hummable, stunning single.

The Radio Sun record Roxus song on new Spaceman EP

Aussie melodic rockers have just released an ep/cd titled Spaceman which contains songs that will not be featured on the upcoming second full length album.
 
Vocalist Jason goes on to say that songs like 'Spaceman' and 'Never Knock A Believer' were fun projects, stylistically a bit different for the band but heavy rock nonetheless, yet with the interest they created we thought we'd make them available on hard copy cd".
Guitarist Stevie goes onto say that "the Roxus 'Body Heat' track was recorded as a 'tip of the hat' to a band we all grew up with. Roxus were Australia's best and they should have been bigger".
 
The Radio Sun 4 song ep can be purchased at the following link for $10 US dollars with free shipping world wide: http://theradiosun.com/spaceman-ep-pre-orders-available-now/ The Radio Sun second full length album is currently being mixed by Paul Laine and is scheduled for a mid 2015 release.

Introducing COLOUR OF NOISE

Monday, March 2, 2015
Categories: 
 
Colour of Noise are a classic rock band from Brighton, England.  The band describes themselves as "steeped in the tradition of the late 60’s British  blues boom and early 70’s stadium rock."
 
Continuing on, "You might know Colour of Noise singer Matt Mitchell from his band Furyon, or Randy Nixon on drums (Magic Bullet Band, Jeevas, Straw) and Bruce John Dickinson (Little Angels, b.l.o.w). It is our pleasure to introduce to you Dan Electro and ‘Silent’ Ben Daniels on bass.
The songs we write deal with issues of permanence, holding onto what is great in our lives (people and music), coming to terms with change (broken dreams, relationships), trying to retain a sense of yourself in a mad world, and escapism through rock n roll.
 
The Noise we make is mostly powered by vintage equipment. Not because we’re that stuck on a principle, it just sounds better to our ears. So does recording in the old way.
People have asked us questions about our new band.  We are writing and demoing for an album to be released in 2015. We will do gigs in 2015. We would love to see you there and will announce much more detail on April 7th."
