‘Watery Grave’ is the latest single from The Jailbirds, (the first to be lifted from their forthcoming EP), out now through Golden Robot Records. Showing the band in fine form, with chunky and earthy riffs, 70’s classic rock sense, scintillating vocals and a power laden rhythm section. ‘Watery Grave’ will more than pique the interest in fans of Corrosion of Conformity, Black Label Society, Alter Bridge and Soundgarden.
Over the course of the last three years, the power trio – consisting of the intricate guitar work and powerful vocals from Myke Penney, the sludgy bass lines of Liam Hills, and the pounding drums of Eric Parent – have performed extensively across Ontario demonstrating, both in the studio and on the stage; they’re a band you simply must hear.
Winners of Best Rock Band at the 2018 Mississauga Music Awards (Canada), THE JAILBIRDS and The Black River have drawn comparisons to the likes of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Royal Blood and Alter Bridge, among others.
THE JAILBIRDS have established themselves one of the most promising up and coming independent bands Canada has to offer with a sound that is equally rooted in the rock and roll of today as it is in that of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
2019 has proved to be a huge year for the band. Beyond releasing their debut studio EP The Black River THE JAILBIRDS have received strong critical acclaim, including being featured on the esteemed Hamilton/Burlington based radio network, Y108 Rocks! The record and band have received a phenomenal response from their dynamic live performance. Having cut their teeth on the road, THE JAILBIRDS have spent a majority of the first half of 2019 touring extensively throughout Ontario and Quebec in support of The Black River, most notably including a set at last year’s Voodoo Rockfest near Kingston, Ontario. The band also churned out two video clips for the cuts ‘Black Madonna’ and ‘The Black River’.

Wicked Smile Release New Single + Video ‘Wait For The Night’
Australian heavy rock band Wicked Smile have released a new single called ‘Wait for the Night’.
Like in many parts of the world, living in Melbourne, Australia has been tough for the greater community. The past eight months has seen the pandemic spread in Melbourne, forcing everyone into harsh lockdown. Therefore, the band had no option but to write and record new music in isolation. The video for the single shows the boys recording their parts in their homes, separated – yet soldiering on.
This comes after their recently released debut ep titled ‘Delirium’ to very favorable reviews.
The band is fronted by charismatic powerhouse lead vocalist Danny Cecati (ex Pegazus & Eyefear) with Stevie Janevski (The Radio Sun, ex Black Majesty & Cyclone Tracy) on guitars, Glen Cav (Virtue) on bass and Jason Tyro on drums.
The four song EP is produced by Paul Laine (The Defiants) and is mastered by Bruno Ravel (The Defiants/Danger Danger).
Danny and Stevie are no strangers to the world stage, having both toured around the world with their respective bands and performed at prestigious festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Masters Of Rock, Metal Universe, Hard Rock Hell, and Screamfest amongst others. The boys have released a whopping twenty- five full length albums combined. Match fitness? – Absolutely!!
Guitarist Stevie Janevski goes on to say, “we released our debut single ‘We Fall’ earlier in the year, an in your face uptempo song to give everyone a taste of what we are about. It received such a fantastic response worldwide that people wanted to hear more right away.
Vocalist Danny says “I’ve really enjoyed putting my stamp on these songs. It’s allowed me to put my heart and soul into them and really capture the emotion of the lyrics. We cover important issues such as government and decision making in the song ‘We Fall’ and discuss the human state of mind in ‘Daze Of Delirium’. Another talking point is the track ‘Stronger’ which was written by Stevie to highlight the issue of bullying in schools and in society as a whole.
Danny states, “songs like ‘Love’s Got A Hold On You’ sound huge in rehearsals. We’re definitely loud and proud!”
Fans of bands such as Judas Priest, Dio, Skid Row, etc. should feel at home, with the band drawing major influence from seventies and eighties heavy rock and heavy metal.
Radio has also really taken to Wicked Smile. Steve Price at ARfm radio called the band “kickass Australian rock with killer vocals”. Wicked Smile were Number 1 on 97 Underground, Power song of the week on the Nite Flight Rock Show and the Number 1 song on the Friday Night Rock Show. U.K. scribe Powerplay Magazine also awarded the EP with top marks awarding the band ten out of ten in the September 2020 issue.
A recent WEBFEST live appearance via the New Wave Of Classic Rock Group in July was applauded, with the band being the most viewed band in September.
2020 sees the band continue to work on a full length album which is now at the recording stage.

Bad Wolves Release New Video For “Learn To Walk Again” From The Retaliators Soundtrack
Photo credit: David Jackson
Better Noise Music recording artists and global rock sensation, Bad Wolves release the music video for “Learn To Walk Again”, a song off of the band’s 2019 album N.A.T.I.O.N. that will appear on the soundtrack for the upcoming Better Noise Films release, THE RETALIATORS.
Listen here: https://badwolves.ffm.to/learntowalkagain
The music video for the track features live footage of Bad Wolves performing on their 2019 tour – something fans of the band miss dearly.
THE RETALIATORS is a high-octane horror-thriller, starring Michael Lombardi (FX’s Rescue Me), Marc Menchaca (Ozark, The Outsider) and Joseph Gatt (Game of Thrones) with special guest appearances by some of rock music’s biggest names.
The soundtrack for the film features Tommy Lee, Bad Wolves, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate and more, and is due out in early 2021.
“This song is about changing your life,” explains vocalist, Tommy Vext. “Myself, the guys in the band and a lot of other people in my life were going through a lot of changes when we wrote this. All of us had been going through these trials and tribulations over the last couple of years and the future was unknown. Sometimes you need to be brought to your knees and be willing to try anything to find your way to where you need to be. ‘Learn To Walk Again’ isn’t my story, it is OUR story.”
Along with the music video, the band has launched a campaign to give back to their fans for an amount of up to $25,000, in partnership with Once Upon A Coconut and Huntington Beach Toyota. Fans are posting their stories of when they were knocked down and had to “Learn To Walk Again” on social media, in order to enter a giveaway and win a special delivery from the band. More information about this can be found on www.badwolvesnation.com/pages/LTWA

Eva Under Fire “Heroin(E)” Video Lifted From Sno Babies Soundtrack
Detroit- based rock band, Eva Under Fire, are proud to release the video for their first song released with Better Noise Music, “Heroin(e).” The song is included on the recently-released soundtrack for the film Sno Babies (Better Noise Films), enhancing the film’s message of hope and the power of recovery. SNO BABIES streams Sept 29 via Video On Demand.

More than just a movie, SNO BABIES is a call to action – a reminder that the drug epidemic remains a crisis, exacerbated by the COVID pandemic, and that through the power of our networks and communities we can save lives
SNO BABIES depicts the grim realities of addiction and its effects on a middle-class suburban town. Kristen and Hannah are best friends–smart, likable and college-bound– and also addicted to heroin. The pair of seemingly unlikely addicts spiral down a path of destruction, hiding their secret from well-meaning but busy parents behind pink bedrooms and school uniforms SNO BABIES shows how easy it can be to both miss and hide the signs of addiction. The film, produced by Allen Kovac, Mike Walsh and Michael Lombardi, stars Katie Kelly (Game of Silence), Paola Andino (Queen of the South), Michael Lombardi (Rescue Me) and Shannan Wilson (Elementary).
Every facet of this project raises money for The Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation (GRI), the first and only national community foundation dedicated to funding support services for people in early recovery from substance use disorders. Every sale and stream of the Sno Babies soundtrack (including “Heroin(e)”) and of the film helps someone in recovery. Other artists with songs in the soundtrack include labelmates Sixx:A.M., Escape The Fate, Bad Wolves and From Ashes To New among others
“Heroin(e)” is an emotional song lyrically, touching on the issues of substance abuse, something lead singer Amanda Lyberg knows far too much about. “I wrote this song because I lived this story. My parents struggled with substance abuse my entire life with one surviving it and the other not,” Amanda continues, ”It honestly means the world to me that this song is part of the Sno Babies film. We are all screaming the same message: Awareness is needed! Recovery is real!” The film and music video’s director, Bridget Smith, says of the connection “The song speaks to Kristen’s inner journey when she decides she must save herself and she’s not responsible to save her friend from her addiction.”
Eva Under Fire got their start five years ago and instantly began cutting their teeth in the underground rock scene, building an enthusiastic fanbase the old-fashioned way. However, the band’s trajectory shifted toward the stratosphere when they sent an unsolicited demo to Better Noise Music, who recognized the band’s hybrid of rock, metal, pop, and classic rock as something wholly unique. The band has spent the past two years working on their upcoming album, which is set to be their most ambitious and fully realized release to date. “We really wanted to challenge ourselves with this record and focus on melodies and writing the best material that we could come up with,” Amanda explains. “We really came up with the best of the best when it came to our songwriting. Some songs are fun, others are more emotional.”
