SILVER SNAKES PARTNER WITH NOISEY.COM TO UNLEASH “RED WOLF”; NEW ALBUM OUT FEB 5TH

snakes-1

LA underground rock band Silver Snakes has teamed up with Noisey.com today to unleash a new song called “Red Wolf” from their upcoming album, Saboteur, that’s due out via Evil Ink Records (U.S.) and Pelagic Records (Europe) on February 5th. Album pre-orders are available now from Evil Ink Records (U.S.) and Pelagic Records (Europe).

Stream “Red Wolf” now at Noisey.com

“Red Wolf was one of the last songs written for the album,” says vocalist/guitarist Alex Estrada. “We had this 8 minute long sludge track that I was having trouble with lyrically so I decided to rework all of the music while keeping the focus on the unconventional tuning. Lyrically it was inspired by the mysticism of protection spells, One in particular called the ‘7 knots untying’ and how that would apply to political and environmental activists seeking to sabotage their enemies.”

Silver Snakes will join Coheed and Cambria, glassjaw and I The Mighty on tour in February in support of Saboteur. Tickets are on-sale now here. Follow Silver Snakes and Evil Ink Records for additional updates.

SILVER SNAKES DEBUT LYRIC VIDEO FOR “RAINDANCE”

On the heels of their recent album announcement, LA rock band Silver Snakes has debuted a new lyric video for their song “Raindance.” The band will release their third studio album, Saboteur, via Evil Ink Records (U.S.) and Pelagic Records (Europe) on February 5th.

“‘Raindance,’ is a pummeling rock song that fits nicely between the atmospheric post-hardcore of Title Fight/Superheaven and the sludge-rock of Baroness/Torche. It’s an absolute ripper.” – BrooklynVegan.com

Silver Snakes will join Coheed and Cambria and glassjaw on tour in February in support of Saboteur. Pre-order the album now and follow the band on Facebook for additional updates.

Evil Ink Records Launches, Signs Thank You Scientist and Remasters Maps Album for Re-release

Pre-order Maps of Non-Existent Places Today!Our very own Claudio Sanchez has officially launched his record label Evil Ink Records and his first signing is New Jersey’s young experimental progressive rock septet Thank You Scientist. Our newly formed label, distributed by INgrooves, will be releasing a fully remixed and remastered version of the band’s 2012 debut full-length record, Maps of Non-Existent Places, on September 30th, in time for their run with Coheed and Cambria’s “Neverender:IKSSE3 Tour.”

In anticipation for the upcoming release, Thank You Scientist has premiered “My Famed Disappearing Act” today on SoundCloud.

Maps of Non-Existent Places will be released digitally, Digipak CD and for the first time on vinyl. The double LP, available on both blue and black 180 gram vinyl, can be pre-ordered now here.

Claudio Sanchez knows a little bit about progressive music. His career has spanned 12 years and 7 albums, likely encompassing the longest concept album arc in the history of rock and roll. Now, in effort to further support and promote his beloved complex genre, he has launched a label dedicated to sharing a wealth of future talent with the first signing being the extremely talented seven-piece band Thank You Scientist.

For the uninitiated, Thank You Scientist was forged from the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey when guitarist Tom Monda met saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic and trumpeter Andrew Digrius. The three bonded over their love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Beatles and Harry Nilsson. Those influences would become the seeds for what Thank You Scientist would evolve into today.

With the addition of vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez and violinist Ben Karas, Thank You Scientist’s lineup of virtuoso musicians was complete. The band would go on to self-release an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011 followed by their debut full-length, Maps of Non-Existent Places, in 2012, which caught the ear of Sanchez, a fellow purveyor of progressive stylings, and led to his signing of the band.

To pinpoint Thank You Scientist’s sound would be inconceivable. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship, fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience. The seven-piece band, who collectively play some 20 instruments, boasts a hyper-composed sound which is indebted to their experience and formal training in both classical and jazz idioms.

A Frank Zappa for the indie generation? Incubus jamming with the Mahavishnu Orchestra? Mr. Bungle and Steely Dan joining forces to fight Godzilla? King Crimson and the Brecker Brothers serenading you at your bedside? It all seems so strange on paper, yet it’s sure to satisfy your ears in the best of ways.

Fans can expect a new studio album in 2015. Follow the band now at https://www.facebook.com/ThankYouScientist for additional news and updates.

Translucid #2 gets “Best Comic Book Covers Ever (This Month)” for May

Two guys fighting. What could be a more pedestrian concept for a comic book cover? (Well, five or six or seven guys just standing there; but I digress.) All praise to Jeff Stokely, then, for putting a new spin on the idea through both the color and composition of this playing card-inspired cover. – Comics Alliance

Missed issue 1? Not to worry. Here’s what CBR had to say about issue 2:

 “Translucid” #2 is a remarkably gripping issue, even for those who might have missed #1″ – CBR

Translucid #1 In Stores Now. Perfect 10 Reviews from All-Comic and Comic Vine.

All-Comic Logo

It’s been a long wait, but the day is finally here: our new series Translucid is officially here and issue one is in stores now! If you missed out on having your comic book shop order you a copy, give them Diamond Code FEB141037 to place their order.

Translucid is the superhero story you want but never thought you’d see. A story of childhood hope and loss as much as it is about the meaning of heroism, and what defines a hero and a villain. The Horse has been the archenemy of The Navigator for years. But The Horse feels The Navigator’s moral compass has been slipping, and even a villain can’t let that happen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator’s past that he’s buried deep in his subconsciousness and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and what propels someone to make the selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.

So far, issue one is getting rave reviews, including perfect 10 scores from All-Comic and Comic Vine!

“If Translucid isn’t on your pull-list or even on your radar you may want to do yourself a favor and pick up this debut issue, because it’s going to be one of those series that everyone is will be talking about.” – All-Comic

“It’s giving me a great deal to think about vis-a-vis how heroes and villains engage with each other in our beloved sequential medium, and the spotlight on “the neverending battle” makes for a brilliant discussion topic (make your friends read this book!) and a dramatic tango of a script. Vibrant colors and dynamic panels make for a visually-enticing book, and I’m already caught up in the chess match between The Horse and The Navigator.” – Comic Vine

We hope you enjoy the new series and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Con appearances this year! Thanks for all your support!
