All This Noise Announced for Bestival Ahead of New Single

All This Noise are the ones to watch for 2015! Bestival just announced the band for this year's lineup in September, which will see the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Gorgon City and Duke Dumont take to the stage. Their new single ‘Seven Billion Like You’ is set for release on 15 June 2015, which has been supported by BBC Radio 6 host Tom Robinson.

Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/allthisnoise/seven-billion-like-you

Forming in late 2014, they've been compared to the likes of The Cure, Radiohead and Depeche Mode. The single has a very original sound - relaxed with a slightly haunting twist, and was mixed by Al Riley (The Maccabees and U2).

Singer/lead guitarist, James has worked as a sub-editor for Mixmag and has been published in The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Independent, whilst Alan, bassist/producer, has been a session player for bands such as Freaky Realistic (Polydor), Mint Royale (Sony). With his own studio in West London, he records, produces and mixes for multiple bands, working with artists such as Wolf Alice and Charlie XCX.

If you want to hear more from the guys they have a show coming up on June 10th at the Underbelly, Hoxton: http://www.hotvox.co.uk/events/all-noise-plus-support

Mastodon and Johnny Wore Black on this week's Game of Thrones...Did you spot them?

Johnny Wore Black, is the musical project of an A-list stunt performer who's appeared in the likes of The Fast and The Furious to Star Wars, from Harry Potter to X-Men to name a few. Now, if you caught Game of Thrones this week, you would've seen him as one of the Wildings along with Mastodon!

JWB has been working with David Ellefson of Megadeth and Grammy Award Winner David Bottrill (Stone Sour, Tool) who helped on the production side of things.

In the words of David Ellefson himself:

“Johnny Wore Black has a very unique sound that I like and as an artist creating a unique sound is one of the hardest things to do, you either have it or you don’t and to me Johnny Wore Black definitely has it.”

Latest video 'Firefly' was premiered on Loudwire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zm4QulIw8S8

Scorpio and Mele Mel put the record straight about Grandmaster Flash with the new 2015 video for their No.1 hip hop track , ‘The Message'

 

It is an honour for Quite Great Music Marketing to be asked by the hip hop innovators, Mele Mel and Scorpio, legendary founding members of the Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five to present their new video of the classic track ‘The Message‘, having been voted by Rolling Stone Magazine the No.1 Hip Hop track of all time. 

The 2015 version of the video for the track also underlines a new message and one that Mele Mel is determined to tell the world and at last truly put, The Message, straight. In line with these determined efforts, Quite Great will be acting as their UK representatives handling all media relations and other related matters linking in with their U.S. management.

As Scorpio explains

‘Mele mel & Scorpio would like to thank Quite Great on being the first company in the UK to break their new video ‘The Message’ 2015. This is all about getting history clear, and the new video and its introduction helps start that process . The biggest mistake we did was leaving Flash’s name on The Furious 5 releases even though the record label advised us to change it. Now especially on the global live circuit, promoters treat Flash like he's Gladys Knight whilst Mele Mel and myself are seen as The Pips. We finally want the world to know he did nothing on the records no scratchin’ or producin’.  We want people to just ask themselves when  they first heard the name Grandmaster Flash? The answer will always be, when they first heard our records which we created, not him. No one will ever say they heard  his name first by scratching. Unless you was from the bronx.’

As Mele Mel says following on from Scorpio: ‘I  don't have much to say about Flash that is printable, because all he's doing and all he has ever done is tried to keep all the credit  for a name that he knows he didn't  build. It is very annoying and with the new video we want to go some of the way to getting The real Message out there to the worldwide public. From day one it was Mele  Mel and Scorpio and the rest of the Furious 5, and we want every lover of rap and hip hop to know it. Check out the new video and spread the word.’
