TX2, aka Evan Thomas is back with his new single “Burn”. The single, which sees the singer uncover a deep, emotional wound, heralds the start of a new chapter in his life: one where he won’t apologize for being his most authentic self as, through his unique vision and lethal lyrics, the singer is exactly where he needs to be: rising above internet bullies and critics.

Check out the single here:

TX2 shares of the new track:

“This year I will have my revenge, and I wanted to start this year at the source. The goal for this song was to write the most intense/rage-filled track that I possibly could, all it takes is one listen to understand. I’ve never felt more anger in my life while writing a song, and for anyone in their revenge era- I’m sure this track will hit hard.”

Rising out of Fort Collins, TX2 prides himself on injecting authentic stories and experiences from his own life into his lyrics. TX2’s music, explosive performances and powerful lyrics have fed the growth of the “X-Movement”, a safe space where fans can talk, vent, and share their feelings knowing that they’re not alone in their struggles.

A member of the LGBTQIA+ community himself, he admits he hasn’t always fit in. His songs document that experience, but really – his stories are about all of us, penned for anyone who has ever felt alone. Per usual – the singer is willing to cause a little chaos with his new track, if that’s what it takes to draw attention to important societal issues. With his new track, he’s making his voice heard loud and clear.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.

Luke Edwards and his band of brothers, L.A. Edwards, return with their new single, “Good Luck,” ahead of a European tour with Lucinda Williams next week. The Californian family band has also just finished recording their fourth record, titled Pie Town, to be released on July 5th, 2024. The new single “Good Luck” reflects on recent difficult times with family.

Luke Edwards states:

Pie Town is the next step down the Heartland trail for us – it’s a collection of songs about my experiences over the past few years addressing the reticence to “grow up” and all the bulls**t that comes with that loss of innocence. Recorded here in Seattle, it reflects our most expansive and explorative instrumentation. I’m excited for this album, stay young my friends.”

Luke Edwards says of the new single:

“This song is a go-fuck yourself song about someone you still care about. There’s so few lyrics in it, I was hoping to let the melody do the talking and to allow space for interpretation for the listener. But for me, it’s about when you say, “Good Luck with that” as you wave goodbye and close the door.”

The new album will be released on July 5th, 2024, worldwide by Bitchin’ Music Group via The Orchard and Mars Label Group in Europe.

Catch L.A. Edwards play their new single with Lucinda Williams on the below UK & European dates, tickets for which are available at https://www.laedwards.net/.

Plutocracy Planet Announces Debut LP for Summer 2024

Born of the pandemic shutdown, Plutocracy Planet is an experimental sociopolitical super-collective led by Scott Morrow.

Born of the pandemic shutdown and mobilized by the world’s societal ills, Plutocracy Planet is an experimental sociopolitical super-collective led by former Alarm Magazine editor and musical vagrant Scott Morrow.

Fusing post-hardcore sensibilities with electronics, polyrhythms, atypical time signatures, and a far-reaching instrumental palette including strings, saxophone, piano, harp, marimba, acoustic guitar, and more. The ambitious collaborative project utilizes the talents of more than two dozen venerable vocalists and instrumentalists across hardcore, hip-hop, emo, avant-garde composition, pop, and more.

Greed, inequality, and the endless influence of money in politics serve as the project’s thematic focal points. But between a broad-minded approach and a coalition of lyrical voices, the collective’s forthcoming debut LP also touches on the cult of personality, fear-mongering media, police brutality, toxic masculinity, religious zealotry, factory farming, the billionaire space race, and the singularity.

Lead single “This Very Severity,” whose music video premiered at BrooklynVegan and is out now on DSPs, features emo legend Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes, The City on Film) playing a slowly unravelling news anchor, relaying stories of our current fractured reality and an increasingly dystopian future.

Nanna says:

“I was overjoyed to be asked to contribute to the record as I usually don’t dabble in this genre or subject matter too much, and now I think I should way more often. Being able to collaborate on cool, important projects is something that brings me great joy, so being a part of this record was a tremendous pleasure. Please disregard my lack of dress pants in the video.”

Joining Nanna on “This Very Severity” are a pair of instrumental phenoms, guitarist Jason Schimmel (Red Fiction, Estradasphere, Secret Chiefs 3) and bassist Jonathan Hischke (The Sound of Animals Fighting, Le Butcherettes, Hella, Anywhere).

Morrow says:

“It’s unbelievable to me that I get to work with the people on this album. I’ve been a fan—in many cases a super fan—of many of them for 20 to 25 years. It’s a mind-blowing honor that they said yes, and I still don’t really know how the hell I convinced them .”
