I would like you to meet Tomorrows Tulips.

Set to release album number three in September, this will be their second visit to our shores this year. The Tote – September 25.
When 24 star Kiefer Sutherland and director Jon Cassar took to Comic-Con in San Diego recently, it was inevitable that talk would turn to the possibility of a 24 movie. Although not exactly giving a resounding answer, Cassar said “still potentially out there, so that’s good news” when questioned about the possibility.

Though they have been doing their thing since the mid-eighties, Prong has yet to be visitors to our shores. That will all change a little later in the year when the heavy-hitters bring their new album Ruining Lives Down Under.

July 7, 2017 is the date being floated for Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Pirates in Space. Actually, it looks as though it has the working title of Dead Men Tell No Tales, but there’s something about facts not getting in the way of a good story.

You gotta love a supergroup. You especially gotta love a local supergroup. Five Mile Sniper combines the talents of members of Motor Ace, Icecream Hands, P76, Prettymess and Mondegreen.

Exploring the subject of youth suicide, all proceeds from the sale will be donated to ReachOut.
What is that they say about the third time being the charm? Not too long ago, Ben Townsend, aka Ivan Ooze, embarked on the ambitious task of releasing a freestyle track every Friday. With the release of his third video, Ivan’s name was spreading across the ol’ interwebs like wildfire.
