Hard-hitting rockers Candlelight Red have just released the first single and title track, “Demons,” from their upcoming new EP. The song is available now on iTunes and Amazon, and streaming in full on SoundCloud – listen below. Demons will feature four tracks produced by Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose, who says that it “came out unreal.” Demons is due out August 14th and is available now for pre-order through the band’s label, Imagen Records.

Great White is yet another band that achieved great success in the mid to late eighties and has since been trying to reclaim just a portion of that acclaim. As with most of the groups from that era that are still knocking around, Great White has gone through countless lineup changes and has seen their fair share of tragedy, though they’ve still managed to release a number of decent rock n roll albums along the way.

Heck – just over one year ago the band released their highly praised homage to their hometown Kingston, Ontario. ‘Meet Me At The Muster Station’ was embraced by critics across the globe garnering consistently dazzling reviews. As a result PS I Love You’s Benjamin Nelson and Paul Saulnier began to tour ‘Muster Station’ around the planet.

The man, the legend, Mr. Dee Snider (Twisted Sister’s unmistakable front man) was kind enough to show PureGrainAudio some love back in 2009. There’s no way you can argue with this man, so let it be forever known that even Dee wants to ROCK with us! Be sure to check out Dee’s new studio album Dee Does Broadway and his his first ever autobiography, ‘Shut Up And Give Me The Mic’.

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Christopher Hall, front man of the electro-rock act The Dreaming about the bands newest release Puppet. The Dreaming is a star studded act comprised of Hall (Stabbing Westward), drummer Johnny Haro (ex-Econoline Crush, Stabbing Westward), guitarist Eric Griffin (ex Murderdolls/Wednesday 13), and bassist Martin Kelly (Living Dead Lights.) I have always been a big fan of Stabbing Westward so this project is just a natural…
