Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, Requiem, hosted a CD release party at the legendary Catalyst Club right in the heart of downtown Santa Cruz. Requiem celebrated the release of their debut album, The Unexplainable Truth, with a night of impressive local music. Opening up for the hosts, two local bands, brought their A game to the table as they proved that Santa Cruz should be on the map for an amazing music scene. Not only did Requiem play 10 songs off the new record, fans were also given a first glimpse of a brand new music video for “Sticks & Stone & Her Lovely Bones.” Guitarist and co-vocalist, Jacklyn Paulette was also recently voted into Revolver Magazine’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock. Requiem is an artist that you need to know!

Rick Siegfried, drummer for the hard rock act Requiem, recently took a moment out of his busy schedule to answer some Purely Provocative questions for PureGrainAudio. The band’s first studio album The Unexplainable Truth was released on October 28th, 2014 by Cleopatra Records and as such the group are pushing hard to promote their new music.

Since forming in 2009, Leeds-based Eagulls have become synonymous with a discontented, disillusioned kind of anger, molded into bullets of post punk that’s rife with urgency and aggression. Brought together by drummer Henry Ruddell and guitarist Mark “Goldy” Goldsworthy, they were later joined by friends Liam Matthews on guitar and Tom Kelly on bass. After struggling to find a singer that fitted with their vision for the band, they roped in George Mitchell to be their frontman without ever having heard him sing before.
