Wicked Smile Release New Single + Video ‘Wait For The Night’

Published

on

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.

on

W.E.T. has announced the release of their fourth album, “Retransmission”. Leading off with first two singles Big Boys Don’t Cry and Got To Be About Love, this album promises to be an album of the year contender in 2021, yes, I’m calling it already!!

Core members Jeff Scott Soto, Erik Mårtensson, and Robert Såll deliver will be releasing the album on January 22, 2021.

W.E.T truly epitomizes what melodic rock has become in the new decade. The key element at the foundation of W.E.T has always been to create a modern melodic hard rock sound that will drive the genre into the future.

Combining powerhouse rhythms and top notch production, the music is equally classic and contemporary. “Retransmission” is nothing else than an absolute milestone, which is well in keeping with the tradition established by the three amazing records that have preceded this one.

Starting with a genre-defining self-titled debut, Robert Såll (the “W” from Work of Art), Erik Mårtensson (the “E” from Eclipse), and Jeff Scott Soto (the “T” from Talisman) accepted the daunting task to give that debut a follow-up, “Rise Up”. After that stellar follow-up, their third opus, “Earthrage”, cemented a legacy of music which will stand the test of time.

Tracklist:

Big Boys Don’t Cry
The Moment Of Truth
The Call Of The Wild
Got To Be About Love
Beautiful Game
How Far To Babylon

Bad Wolves band promo picture

The Retaliators is a highly anticipated movie on my radar, set to reach theatres in early 2021. a high-octane horror-thriller in which a Pastor and father has to choose between turning the other cheek and taking bloody revenge – it promises to have an equally high-octane soundtrack to match.

Bad Wolves have just released a new music video for their song “Learn To Walk Again”, which appears on THE RETALIATORS movie soundtrack. The track, comes from their second album, N.A.T.I.O.N.

The music video contains footage from the film, in which members of Bad Wolves, Papa Roach, Five Finger Death Punch and a lot more, are featured. 

Vocalist Tommy Vext talks about “Learn To Walk Again

 “This song is about changing your life. All of us in the band and other people I am close to were going through a lot of changes when we wrote it. We 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.”
