Ireland's DIRTY DIAMONDS have released an EP titled 'Leaving Town', and have issued their first single from the album, “Let’s Get Loud.” Guitars ready? Check. Lead singer arms extended? Check. Wind blowing through your hair during the chorus? Check. Everything appears to be in order including the special effects budget at 2:47. Two questions: 1. Is the camouflage tee worn by the drummer considered bad ass? 2. Is the air guitar by the lead singer during the solo bad ass? ANSWERS: 1. Yes 2. No…
I missed this video (been out for a while) from FAMOUS UNDERGROUND. The video for the song “Necropolis” is from their self titled release. Love the movie theater setting and the song hits fast! The lead singer’s appearance looks like the result of Sebastian Bach and Vince Neil having a kid. Apparently he HAD to front a rock band (sort of like being born into a NASCAR family – not a lot of options).

I have no idea, I am having way too god a time with the video. “WATCHING AS IT BURNS!” Here we go, at 2:40 here comes the fire, oh no, WATCH OUT! The hair is going to catch fire…

Vocalist/guitarist Nicholas Walsh says, "It’s great to know that our music can reach many people. We had multiple labels interested in the band, and ultimately went with DOTT due to their understanding of our music and how and where it needs to be exposed."
Bassist Laurie-Anne also states, "Under the stable of Rock ‘n’ Growl Management and DOTT Records we feel that we have a great team to propel us forward into the New Year."
Famous Underground's self-titled studio release was produced by Nick Walsh, and mixed by Darius Szczepaniak (Sum 41, Black Crowes, Big Sugar, Sacrifice) at Rouge Valley Studio in Toronto. The new recording takes Walsh’s writing to a more defined state where the lyrics delve more into the complexities of the real world. More...
