Long Live. That phrase has preceded everything from revolutions and riots to heartfelt cheers and joyous celebration. When stated alone those two words can be perceived as innocuous and tame, but pair them with a celebrated entity or righteous cause and they can conjure up the zenith of the human spirit. For The Chariot to name their upcoming and eagerly anticipated full-length album "Long Live", one could take the implications of the title on face value as a bombastic proclamation. For those that have experienced the group perform live, gleaming the new album title will instead resonate a deep and meaningful truth. For they have witnessed the harnessed whirlwind of crafted aggression and therefore understand that "Long Live" is not bravado, but the manner in which the band has and shall continue to flourish. Studio albums serve as an enduring testament to a bands state of being and creative synergy at the time of writing and recording. They are a continual testament to a style and sound honed at the moment in time it was captured. While The Chariot have produced a number of critically and commercially acclaimed recordings, it is their live show that shall forever live on as the beating pulse of the band's heart. The sheer force of their thunderous live renditions while maniacally pouring their entire physical being into each note captivates and jolts an audience into awe and utter appreciation. It is this experience, undeniable and unavoidable by anyone attending their show, that fully supports the weight of the words "Long Live". With a hard earned and accomplished sales history of over 100,000 units and years of vigorous global touring, The Chariot have entrenched themselves as a standout in the hard and aggressive music movement. Founded in Douglasville, GA by vocalist and band leader Josh Scogin, The Chariot forged a path for themselves with a tireless work ethic. With their 2004 debut "Everything is Alive, Everything is Breathing…." The Chariot immediately distinguished themselves from the musical masses by recording the entire album live in one take. It was an approach seldom dared by any musician, but it perfectly captured The Chariot and set the tone for their performance driven ethos that remains at the core of the band's being to this day. That album and its raw display of power planted the seed that spawned a devout and unyielding fan base that hung on every jarring riff, off timed rhythm, and unrelenting vocal performance. The following years saw The Chariot continue to ascend through the burgeoning underground music scene with studio releases like "The Fiancee" and "Wars and Rumors of Wars" both debuting on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Each release saw an accompanied trek of worldwide touring, sharing stages with the hard and heavy elite like P.O.D, As I Lay Dying, and Every Time I Die. While their profile and reach continued to rise beyond that of their genre, their work ethic and values remained grounded in the roots of d.i.y. punk. The band took on the painstaking yet ultimately fulfilling mission of creating hand-made artwork and liner notes for their 2009 "Wars and Rumors of Wars" release, completed by numbering the first 25,000 copies. Most people would scoff at the thought of taking on such a process, but the love of the art and a commitment to their fan base is what sails the ship of The Chariot. The time and effort it required was a mere pittance to pay to create such a unique presentation of the album for their fans. Never a band to take more than a moments rest, The Chariot is currently hard at work and putting the finishing touches on their upcoming brand new full length album "Long Live". This album also marks a new chapter of sorts, as they recently found a new home by signing with Good Fight Music. The album is tentatively being set for a late Fall release in 2010. The new album contains all the signature elements of their sound, sized up to epic dimensions. The album will without a doubt serve as another testament to a specific time and place of a storied and esteemed passage. As one could easily guess, the successive tours for when the album is completed are already in the works. For those that have experienced the band up close and in concert know full well, that decimating stages and leaving crowds aghast is how the band shall truly - Long Live.
After years of touring and performing around the world with various bands, vocalist Jerry Roush finally has a band to call his own. The former frontman for Sky Eats Airplane and Of Mice & Men has joined forces with 8-string guitarist Joshua Travis [The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza], bassist Travis Sykes and drummer Chad Hasty to create Glass Cloud.
The Hampton, VA-based band is currently in San Diego, CA recording their debut full-length album at Lambesis Studios, with Joshua Travis also serving as producer. Glass Cloud will release the full-length album in late Spring/early Summer 2012 through Equal Vision Records.
Musically, Glass Cloud offers a sense of controlled chaos fueled by Roush's deep, ferocious growls and distinct, gritty cleans. Travis' phenomenal guitarwork and ability to constantly surprise listeners stands out as he displays the perfect balance between energetic, driving intricacies and calmer progressions that carry a dark, eerie tone. Sykes and Hasty, graduates of Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, rule the rhythm section contributing unique cadences and swinging, jazzy grooves interlaced with softer symphonic touches. Glass Cloud shines as the members deliver some of their heaviest and most technical compositions to date.
Excitement and enthusiasm simply radiates out of the band as they discuss working together in the studio and developing a sound that is all their own. "The collective musicianship and talent level in this band is unbelievable," explains Travis. "…and to top it off, the guys are all down-to-earth people too. Working on this record has been a lot of fun. We are trying to introduce something organic and ambient into heavy music. Not the typical breakdown heavy, but darker chords upon layers and layers."
Roush also boasts unabashedly about the remarkable caliber of musical proficiency within the band, and specifically about the creative connection between himself and Travis stating, "From the moment he became involved in this band, he was sending me fully finished tracks left and right, songs that were blowing my mind. Musically, Josh is a beast…the dude is a musical machine. We meshed so well, right from the start, making tracks that had no limits to them. I couldn't have asked for a better and more prolific guitarist to accompany me in this new musical endeavor. And with Josh being the producer of the debut Glass Cloud record, we know that we are making the exact album that we want to make."
"We have been working intensely in the studio, but it will definitely pay off when we introduce something new and fresh to the scene," Travis concludes. "I don't think I could be more excited about a project." Glass Cloud will spend 2012 on the road supporting their forthcoming album, with tour dates to be announced soon.
Birds In Row
Too straight forward and too filthy to get back to the so-called hardcore fanbase that bloomed on Modern Life Is War's grave, too kind to belong to the crust/sludge scene, the three hardworkers from BIRDS IN ROW seem to avoid their city as much as labels.Then you can still wonder where do they take place between Modern Life Is War, Kylesa or Cursed. The first ones for the guts unpacking and their heartbreaking spleen, the second for their punk roughness and their abilities to enlight dirt and the last ones for the urging adrenalin discharges.But it is certainly not that. It is hardcore as it is supposed to be played. Period. With passion, deprived of any splendor and made so they can go stuff some asphalt half of the year.And yet, according to the 3000 miles they're dealing with in a twelve months time, if you haven't seen them less than 20 miles from your home, it can only mean two things : you have no friends, or no taste at all. And if there's not much we can do about the first reason, we can sure work on the other one.
