The Revivalists have announced the Against All Odds tour and it is definitely one to get excited for as the New Orleans based band brings a groovy, fresh sound to the music scene.
The tour will kick off on 4/11 in St. Petersburg, FL and wrap up on 5/5 as a hometown show at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Openers for the New Orleans and Florida shows are still to be announced, but Samantha Fish will open for the Texas dates.
While the tour consists of 10 dates and is pretty small, the hype is real. The Revivalists have been dominating the alternative rock charts and have even been nominated for Best New Rock/ Alternative Rock Artist with a nomination for “Wish I knew You” for Best Alternative Rock Song of the Year, the single that put them on the map and gained mainstream media attention.
The Revivalists have such a fun, modern, soulful sound that fans of all music of all generations can appreciate them.
Pre-sale tickets can be bought here and general admission tickets go on sale at 10 AM CST.
Will you be seeing The Revivalists this spring?
It's finally here. The stage has been set and the best of the best are set to duke it out one last time on the grandest stage of them all; the Super Bowl a.k.a. Tom Brady season.
It's almost a yearly tradition that Brady and company appear in the Super Bowl, and in most cases, win. And this year, historically speaking, has potentially been the easiest year for the Patriots considering the opposing signal-callers all playoff virgins, cough cough ... Marcus Mariota, Blake Bortles, Nick Foles.
Super Bowl 52 is a little over a week away, but as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are on the verge of winning their sixth-ring since 2001 is easy to imagine that G.O.A.T. has accumulated many fans ... and enemies. Lets analyze.
Notable Patriot Fans
In a recent Twitter Q&A (something that actually might be the greatest thing to come out of the internet), the A7X frontman spilled the beans on his secret obsession with Tom Brady and the rest of the Brady Bunch. It's ok Shadows, you can't hide true love, I get it. Maybe try to get the rest of the guys to get on board instead of being teased by false post-season promises.. @steelers @raiders.
It's no secret that Marky Marky loves Boston, especially the New England Patriots. The actor-turned-burger mogul can often be seen frequenting with Patriot's owner Robert Kraft, taking in games from the owners luxury suite. Mark Wahlberg is such a big Patriots fan that one time, the Patriots play on a scoring drive sent the actor into such a state of shock that he completely denied RKK of a celebratory high-five. LOOK.
Aerosmith has its roots firmly grounded in Boston so this one makes sense (not that other two haven't?) Alright so here's the deal, in the 2011-12 season AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens, Tyler got the nod to sing the National Anthem and botched it. But Brady didn't let that shake him though and the Patriots prevailed in triumphant fashion, winning 23-20 thanks to a botched field goal. So essentially, Steven Tyler's botched vibes spread like the bubonic-plague and caused at the time Ravens kicker, Billy Cundiff to miss wide left. Thanks, Steven.
Notable Eagles Fans
Of course the Fresh Prince is rooting for the Eagles. While Philly has a very rich football history, the Eagles have actually never won a Super Bowl title. They're even the only team to defeat Vince Lombardi in a championship game predating the Super Bowl era.
Another Philly native, Cooper has been a lifelong Eagles fan. The actor even played a bi-polar Eagles fan in the critically acclaimed film the, Silver Linings Playbook.
Cooper was spotted at the NFC Championship game, where the Eagles exposed Case Keenum and the Vikings.
The actor-comedian was born in raised in Philadelphia and is often vocal with his hometown support. Hart once performed a stand-up set at sold out Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles.
Three Days Grace debuted a tumultuous new single "The Mountain" along with a music video for the track as well from their upcoming album Outsider, due out March 9, 2018 via RCA. This will be the first project from the band since 2015's Human.
Lyrically, "The Mountain" talks about the everyday struggles that we deal with and how we have to keep pushing on through it all, even on the worst days. Watch the video for "The Mountain" above and pre-order Outsider here.
Breaking Benjamin are teasing fans with yet another single from their upcoming album, Ember. Today, the band released their new single, "Feed The Wolf"- and you don't want to miss it.
In our opinion, "Feed The Wolf" is a perfect follow up to the band's first single, "Red Cold River." Crank up the volume and "Feed The Wolf" will instantly feel like a classic Breaking Benjamin ballad. The song has the big hooks and melodic chorus you would expect from Dear Agony. While "Red Cold River" takes the opportunity to highlight the strengths of its newest members; 'Feed The Wolf," is a clear demonstration the band knows how to reinvent their classic sound.
Want to hear Breaking Benjamin live and loud? Pick up tickets to see them play with Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet For My Valentine in a city near you!
AVENGED SEVENFOLD will be skipping this year's Grammys. As a form of protest on how the metal and rock genres have been treated.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD is nominated for "Best Rock Song Of The Year." This is the first year the Grammy's have acknowledged AVENGED. METALLICA, NOTHING MORE, and FOO FIGHTERS also have songs nominated for the title.
On Twitter a fan asked how they feel about being nominated for a Grammy, the members of AVENGED SEVENFOLD responded: "Honored. Unfortunately, they have taken 'Best Rock Song' off the telecast this year so we won't be attending. Maybe next time."
This is not the first time Metal Bands have received the short end of the stick from those who work for the awards organization. M. Shadows has criticized the group before stating "When you look at metal, it's probably one of the healthiest genres when you look at it in a worldwide perspective — every single country listens to metal," he continued. "And whether it's mainstream or not, it's irrelevant. People will watch your program if you're giving awards to bands that deserve it and it's actually on TV, and it helps those bands push the needle forward."
Shadows goes on to say, "It helps everybody when the bands can get bigger. So the 'metal' award still is a problem because literally no one's gonna see those bands or know that they're nominated, and that's an issue. I think it needs to be on TV."

öColson Baker, a.k.a., Machine Gun Kelly, has landed the role as Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in Netflix’s upcoming adaption of the bands 2001 autobiography “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.”
The film will focus on the hair band’s early days on the Sunset Strip showcasing the highs and the lows, but nonetheless, Mötley Crüe.
Although Machine Gun’s claim to fame is due to his successful rap career, Baker has been stacking his resume wit acting gigs simultaneously. Baker has starred in the Showtime series Roadies as Wes and co-starred with Dave Franco in Nerve.
The film is said to been in talks for ten years now and will most likely be directed by Jeff Tremaine, director of the Jackass movie. The band members are also said to be co-producing the film as well. No official release date has been confirmed at this time.
Cane Hill dropped their third album Too Far Gone via Rise Records. The record is the groups follow up to their 2016 album Smile and the band has grown tremendously. Overall, Too Far Gone is a very solid album front to back and give it 8.5 stars out of 10. Vocalist Elijah Witt versatility is on full display on tracks such as "Why?" where the singer employs a softer vocal style than usual and on "Lord of Flies" Witt reminds us of the power his vocal chords are a capable of.
"Erased" is another standout track that is lyrically enticing and is easy for us as listeners to connect emotionally to, as Witt vocalizes the pain of losing a loved one to illness.
Being the bands third album, expect Too Far Gone to push Cane Hill into the rock conversation as the band is beginning to hit their stride and entering their prime. This record is as dark as it is soulful and is easy to recognize the matured approach to making an album from Cane Hill. Expect big things to come from this group. Too Far Gone is Headrush approved.
Check out the video for the title track below.
Hey folks, we're trying something new here at Headrush TV in 2018. Every Thursday we are going to serve, you the reader, throwback videos from your favorite bands and creating an opportunity to step back in time and take a look back at was going on in the world. That being said, lets do this.
Lets throw it back to 2007, more specifically August 12; Killswitch Engage has just released a cover of Dio's "Holy Diver" as the fourth single for their upcoming album As Daylight Dies accompanied by a pretty badass mid-evil music video.
Alright back to 2007. Wanna know something crazy? The iPhone 1 was released two months (June 29, 2007) before this song was. Prince performed at the Super Bowl XLI halftime. The Purple One literally performed in the performed in the rain, as only he could.
George Bush's days in office were dwindling down and Britney Spears year-long meltdown was just beginning. Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix broke the box office while I Am Legend, Zodiac, and Superbad each caught catalyzed a cult of followers.
2007 was alright I guess.

Coming off their latest release of Dead Reflection last July, Silverstein has just released the music video for "Whiplash," earlier today.
Directed by Wyatt Clough and Roger Galvez, the video opens with a young lady in a no-name motel room as she makes the decision to run away from something unknown, notably in a sweet muscle car parked outside.
According to the band, "the video is a continuation from our video for 'Lost Positives,' released last year...This song has been a blast to play live and fans can expect to see it on our upcoming tour across America — 'The Get Free Tour!'"
Check out the video for "Whiplash" down below!

New York City based rock band Bayside is ready to hit the road with an amazing lineup. The group will tour this spring with Hopeless Records label mates New Found Glory, fellow New Yorkers The Movielife, and former Yellowcard vocalist, William Ryan Key.
Feeling as pumped as we are? Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 19th. You can also pre-order tickets here.
Bayside vocalist Anthony Raneri shared his thoughts about the upcoming tour.
"It's very rare for a whole tour package to work this well musically and socially,” Raneri said. “I have a New Found Glory tattoo and a couple of them have Bayside tattoos. I've sang on NFG records and both the members of NFG and Vinnie from the Movielife have sang on Bayside records.”
This tour will not be the first time the participating bands formed musical connections. Their relationships in fact go way back.
“The Movielife and NFG might have been two of the first bands that we ever gave our demo to when we first started Bayside. This is a very special tour for us on many levels," Raneri said.
Vacancy is Bayside’s 7th studio album. Check out the band's latest video "Mary" here, and stream the full album via Spotify.
