Connor Bracken and The Mother Leeds Band release their second studio album 'Nightbird Motel' on Friday 25th September, with their new single 'Dream Of You And Me', due to be released in advance on Friday 21st August. Two years in the making, the album captures the band’s intent to blend their live show energy with the superior sound of the studio. Based in Asbury Park, New Jersey, the same stomping grounds as Bruce Springsteen and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, The Mother Leeds Band is comprised of Connor (lead vocals, guitar), Rich Seyffart (drums, vocals), Chris Dubrow (bass, vocals) and Jeff Linden (guitar, vocals). While staying true to their Blues Rock roots, they have become a permanent fixture in today’s Rock scene, and the band are looking forward to touring the album next year.
One Of A Firekind
Modern Rock 3-piece Firekind self-release ‘What I have Found Is Already Lost’ Deluxe Edition on Friday 30th October, of which their lead single, ‘Adrenalin’, is today's Track of The Day. Fusing epic, soaring vocal and guitar melodies with driving, powerful drums and bass, the Devon based band consists of brothers Jas Morris (vocals and previous Guitarist Magazine Guitarist of the Year winner), Dan Morris (bass, keys) and Robin Shute (drums), although original drummer and close friend of the band, Dan Collings played on the album. With Hard Rock and Prog roots spiced with an arena sound blent in, it’s hard to pigeon hole them which bodes to a myriad of Rock tastes. This is a theme throughout, augmented by the acoustic bonus tracks which were recorded and produced by Jas and Dan in their home studio during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Broken Hands Split In Two
British Rock band Broken Hands released their second album 'Split in Two' last Friday via SO Recordings, of which ‘Run Away’ is today's Video Of The Day. The track is an Indie anthem with Pop sensibilities, rich for arenas and small venues alike, taking influence from the era of Brit Rock heroes such as Oasis and The Verve. It follows the previously shared guitar fuelled ‘For The Night’, which is a heartfelt ballad of stadium-sized proportions demonstrating a different side to the acclaimed Kent Rock band. Indeed, the band’s live dynamics and sonic blend of Rock, Indie and Americana-esque moments has been captured throughout 'Split In Two'.
