FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 23, 2017 - Detroit based rock band Kaleido has announced the release of their debut full-length album, Experience. Due to release May 19th, *Experience was recorded at The Pipeyard Studio in Plymouth, MI. The band also revealed the Official Music Video for the second single, "Trouble In Paradise."
"Our album "EXPERIENCE" captures the duality of life that many will easily relate to - real people, real stories, real emotions. Through the good times, the bad times, the ups and the downs; it's these experiences that make us who we are." - Kaleido

Detroit claims a long line of musical trendsetters. Perhaps there's something in the water, or maybe it's the blue collar, put-up-or-shut-up mentality, but the Motor City has served as fertile ground for musical geniuses ranging from Alice Cooper and Kid Rock to Eminem and Bob Seger.
Kaleido - comprised of Christina Chriss (vocals), Joey Fava (drums), Ronnie Rosolino (rhythm guitar), Cody Morales (bass) and Zach Bolling (lead guitar) - is a fresh, modern day Detroit incarnation of rock n’ roll. Their upcoming 2017 debut full-length album EXPERIENCE is straight, unadulterated, feel it in your soul rock with flourishes of pop, R&B, punk & funk undertones - and hooks for days.
At the core, Kaleido is reminiscent of the piss-and-vinegar, stadium rock of a young Guns N’ Roses crossed and fused with the lovable, fun and energetic sensibilities of an early No Doubt. Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which quickly gained them notoriety in the Detroit music scene.
Named Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Weekly in both 2013 & 2014, plus having won two Detroit Music Awards in 2015 for "Outstanding Rock/Pop Group" and "Outstanding Rock Recording" for their second independent EP 'Unbreakable', they have since taken the show on the road, lighting up stages on the Van's Warped Tour, Rockstar Uproar Festival, Summerfest, & CMJ Music Marathon and opened for Aerosmith, Slash, Kid Rock, The Offspring, Sammy Hagar, Evanescence, Halestorm, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Twenty One Pilots and countless others.
Kaleido recently wrapped up their latest US tour with groundbreaking rock legends Living Colour and their first tour of the United Kingdom with Alien Ant Farm and Hed PE in October 2016.
The first single released from EXPERIENCE, titled "Love & War" (co-written and featuring Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm), won an unprecedented 27 nights on 89x The New Rock Alternative People's Choice, and was consequently retired as the most winning song of all time on the station.
"Trouble In Paradise", the second single, combines hard hitting 808's, pounding live drums, a bouncy rhythm, beautifully eerie vocals, soaring melodies and harmonizing guitars with a funky reggae inspired bass line. Trouble In Paradise blends and bends genres, creating a fresh, new sound.
"Life resembles a kaleidoscope. Ever changing, intricate, and beautiful.”

R&B-influenced singer/songwriter STOLAR has released the brand new video for the single “Paralyzed”. Premiering on respected music tome POPMATTERS, the atmospheric video was directed by Kevin Slack (The Gaslight Anthem, Shawn Mendes, Hailee Steinfeld) and features Stolar performing the song amidst images filmed in reverse. “Kevin and I worked together to ensure the video had the perfect balance of a dream and subtle narrative,” explains Stolar to PopMatters. “The end product honestly blew my mind. ‘Paralyzed’ is meant to feel like a three-minute film about pushing through the fear of the unknown. The final cut captures that uncannily.”
The single “Paralyzed” is a perfect introduction to the smooth sounds of this NYC-based artist, which PopMatters calls, “utterly warm and contemporary, based in pop, but further refined by his soul and electronic leanings. Soulful electropop, if you will.” Rap and R&B bible HipHopDX said the track possesses “a real badass swag and cinematic space”, capturing the expansive and epic production which is credited to up & coming DJ/producer duo Take a Daytrip who have worked on tracks by Raury ("Cigarette Song," "Her," "Amor," "Home,"), Pell ("Show Out"), The Skins ("Bury Me" ft. D.R.A.M., "Runaway"), and Chaz French ("Questions," "Sometimes," "We Made It"), among others. The post production team for the EP included Grammy-nominated mix engineer DJ Swivel (The Chainsmokers) and Grammy-winning mastering engineer Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Lady Gaga).
Born in New Jersey and based in Brooklyn, Stolar sharpened his natural songwriting and singing talents by playing countless local late night shows, studying other musicians’ live performances, writing for artists such as The Voice and America’s Got Talent finalists Caroline Pennell and Alice Tan Ridley, and penning purpose tracks such as the anthem for the most recent Brooklyn Nets playoff run.
With new songs at the ready to launch him even further into 2017, Stolar has turned personal stories into lush and danceable yet undeniably deep songs. Drawing inspiration from his own life and his struggles with bipolar disorder, his music takes on a much deeper significance and offers him a viable and creative outlet for catharsis. With “Paralyzed” as his entrance to the music world on his own accord, it’s only a matter of time before he tackles the industry like he’s tackled his mental illness – with a backbeat and “a real badass swagger.”

BILLBOARD has debuted PIERCE THE VEIL's behind-the-scenes footage on setof their video for "Floral & Fading." (Go to Billboard to check it out).
"Have you ever wondered to yourself, 'When was the first mosh pit ever?' How and when did it actually get invented? Or when did someone first whip out a lighter at a rock show?," Vic Fuentes explains exclusively to Billboard. "We decided to answer all of these questions in one single music video. At a bowling alley in 1969, we unveiled as many iconic rock moments as we could possibly cram into one place."
The video premiered February 10 and the track is taken from the band's latest album Misdaventures, which debuted at #4 in the Billboard Top 200 last year with 54,000 copies sold in the U.S. in its first week.

LOS ANGELES, CA | FEBRUARY 24, 2017: Hailing from Coachella, CA, rising indie-alternative rock band Bear Fight is thrilled to unveil their latest single, titled "She," exclusively with Paste Magazinetoday. When you're presented with music by Bear Fight, you're going to get energetic songs that are created with passion. Recorded by The Colourist's Adam Castillas at Grandmaster Studios, "She" is a short poem composed freely by Michael Ramirez, later put to a simple yet very emotional musical performance. The lyrics make up an anti-love song about someone that is far too distant to continue loving. It is inspired by longing and melancholy emotion, delivered in a desperate manner through the music. The band elaborates:
"The three-chord song was written in about 10 minutes, and was last on the list during pre-production. We didn't know this would eventually be "the song." Around 2am, finishing recording, our drummer Ryan spontaneously said, 'Mike, take me to She real quick.' He laid down a massive drum part to inspire the rest of the song's direction, two minutes and forty seconds of longing and emotional power. We knew we had sparked something that we had not heard before." - Matthew Sutton
Bear Fight is a genre-bending indie-alternative band infused with cross-generational blues, soul and rock. The members of Bear Fight established themselves as musicians and as lifelong friends at a very young age in the Desert of Palm Springs. The band gained vast experience, working and recording with a multi-platinum musician and producer, Ronnie King, giving the band a taste of what the music industry was all about. The band soon after exhausted the Desert and its venues, from winning Best of the Valley award for musical artist, to opening for acts like The Expendables and Fitz and the Tantrums. In fact, Bear Fight has performed over 250 shows in their time, gaining tremendous experience that separates them from other artists. Bear Fight most looks forward to performing their live shows as they state, "[they] are what we live for, we are not strangers to the stage or to the world of music and are ready to live out what we preach." Bear Fight's music aims to join the past with present, using style and recording influences that stretch across decades like the 60's and 70's style soul and rock n' roll, combined with new advances in music technology such as sampling and other innovative production techniques. They hear the same thing when people hear their music: no one can accurately describe it or name another artist that they sound like. Recently, Bear Fight relocated to Los Angeles and have been excited to release new music with a new image to the public to mimic the success they had in the Desert. The band claims, "We are life long friends and life long musicians. We can't wait to add our fuel to the spark that has been created recently in our culture, that is the realizing of genuine musicianship and appreciation for the past."
