Cormac Neeson has announced the new release date for the re-issue of his acclaimed, White Feather album, re-issued on vinyl, with the Deluxe Edition available on CD and digital.  Delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the album is now due to drop on Friday, November 6, 2020, just ahead of Neeson’s 14 date UK & Ireland tour kicking off on November 11.

The Deluxe Edition is 16 tracks including two brand new studio recordings, three bonus tracks and the new radio mix of latest single Do Something Today. Originally released only as a 10 track limited edition, White Feather was a top 5 album in the official UK Country Rock charts and received critical acclaim across the board, one that will sit easily alongside the classic singer-songwriter narrative albums.

Cormac states, “I’m thrilled to be able to take my White Feather songs out on the road and to be able to finally perform them in a true singer-songwriter setting. It’s going to feel very special to get back out again especially after all the lockdown uncertainty of the present world! It promises to be a joyous and uplifting tour and we are so looking forward to it. My label Social Family are working incredibly hard behind the scenes and we are confident that the reissue of White Feather will be available before the tour starts!”

ABOUT

Cormac Neeson, the lead singer of Northern Irish rock band The Answer, blazed the road to rock ‘n’ roll glory for the better part of a decade, touring the world, sharing stage supports with the likes of AC/DC and The Rolling Stones, achieving both fan and peer respect as not only an outstanding vocalist but consummate performer. Yet, recessed deep within his creative subconscious lay his Dylan destiny, a Celtic story telling muse that gnawed for release from the straight jacket of rock ‘n’ roll.

It is well documented that the last The Answer record Solas (2016), arrived unexpectedly, borne from moments of solitude, darkness and desperation. This was in part inspired by Neeson’s journey from the edge of personal trauma as he overcame his first-born son Dabhog’s premature, life threatening and complicated birth. Following Solas, Neeson decided it was finally time to reach for something different.

Following three intensive song writing trips to the USA over a period of 15 months, the album was recorded 2018 in Nashville at the legendary Studio 19, now the Sound Kitchen. Cormac immersed himself in the rich musical history of both the studio and the city, channelling a re-energised creativity working with some of the finest Nashville musicians including Steve Grossman on drums (Gibson Miller band, India Arie), Doug Kahan on bass (Cody Johnson) and John Heinrich on Pedal Steel (Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, and Tammy Wynette).

Following the album tracking, he returned to complete dubbing and mixing in Belfast where he brought in some of Northern Ireland’s finest musicians to help with final arrangements. The result is a powerful blend of two diverse and rich musical cultures, a Celtic Nashville concoction connected by Neeson’s unique vocal tones and song writing prowess, performing songs co-written with leading USA and Nashville country songwriters including 2016 Tennessee songwriter of the year Corey Lee Barker; Steve O Brien, Blue Miller, Chase Akers, Blake Densmore and Allen McKendree Palmer who between them have sold in excess of 30 million songs.

In Feb 2019, Neeson became a brand ambassador for the learning disability charity, Mencap NI, a partnership that stemmed from Mencap’s instant connection with the lyrics of the song Broken Wing. In 2014, his son Dabhóg was born three months prematurely with Down’s Syndrome and the impact of that life changing experience had such a lasting and profound effect that Neeson sought solace in penning an autobiographical and emotional account of his inner thoughts and what it’s like to bring up a child with disability. It’s no surprise then that much of the powerful subject matter of White Feather album is rooted in the life changing events of the past five years.

earMUSIC is very happy to announce the latest worldwide signing of iconic US Hard-Rock band SKID ROW which marks another outstanding artist addition to the labels roster. 

The band just started to work on its new studio album with producer Nick Raskulinecz who comes with an impressive track record from his latest works with bands such as Foo Fighters, Rush, Halestorm, Evanescence, Velvet Revolver and Alice in Chains.

The band sends the following comment straight from the studio:
“We are extremely excited to have signed with earMUSIC. Not only do we have an incredible team to work with, but we are label mates with iconic artists like Deep Purple and Alice Cooper. To say we are psyched is an understatement.”-  SKID ROW

SKID ROW is a multi platinum act coming along with a solid bunch of Top Ten singles and the bands second album, ”Slave to the Grind“ peaked at #1 at US Billboard Charts in 1991. 

 New Jersey kids, punk and metal attitude, determined to conquer the world. All for one, banded together with single-minded purpose. The battlefield was the stage, the songs their arsenal in an us-against-them musical coup d’état.

The band will prove the magic of their new band chemistry on the new album coming to you in 2022! 

Max Vaccaro (General Manager earMUSIC):

Skid Row have reached great levels of success in the 80s and the 90s but we are sure that they have all they need today to open a new chapter in their career and return to be one of the leading names in the hard rock world“

All Good Things join forces with Hollywood Undead to release ‘For The Glory’!

Published

on

Next-generation rock group All Good Things just dropped a monstrous new version of their anthemic hit “For The Glory,” now featuring Johnny 3 Tears and Charlie Scene of Hollywood Undead.

The track, an unapologetic victory song for the underdog, with lyrics like “We celebrate with the city tonight/ Hear the hometown cheer/ It’s the ultimate high,” has already resonated with millions of listeners around the world with its original version reaching over 100M streams across digital platforms to date. This new, amplified rendition comes ahead of the band’s first full-length studio album since signing with Better Noise Music, due later this year.

“For The Glory (featuring Hollywood Undead)” is now available to stream or download now
https://allgoodthings.ffm.to/forthegloryhu.

To accompany the release of the new version of the single, the band also premiered a music video today, directed by Wombat Fire. Featuring footage from the upcoming horror-thriller feature film The Retaliators (in which the song appears, coming later this year from Better Noise Films), the new video very much embodies the band’s origins. The LA-based group began by creating monster rock songs that could be used across media like games, TV and films. They created and expanded this cinematic rock sonic profile in reaction to their growing fan base, who could hear their music featured in countless TV shows, games, films and ads worldwide – including the popular game Mortal Kombat, the NFL Super Bowl 52 broadcast, episodes of “Shark Tank,” “Criminal Minds,” “Vampire Diaries” and ads for Sony PlayStation. 

Of this new version the band said, “‘For the Glory’ is a swagger anthem about celebrating a hard earned victory against all odds, with all the people around you that helped get you there. We’re so touched by how many people have connected with this song since we first released it. We love collaborating and are so grateful to our friends Johnny 3 Tears and Charlie Scene from Hollywood Undead for hopping on this and taking it to the next level.”

Johnny 3 Tears of Hollywood Undead added, “It was an honor for us to work with one of the best rock bands making music today. ‘For The Glory’ is already an amazing song, happy we could add our own style to it”

Since signing to Better Noise Music in 2020, All Good Things have seen their music more than double in monthly streams across digital platforms, averaging over 2.8M streams per month for each of their songs. Their first single release with BNM, the high-energy track “Kingdom,” was met with praise from fans and critics alike. Riding the momentum of their ever-growing fanbase worldwide, the band is hard at work on their next studio album due later this year.
