Skid Row have signed a new deal with earMUSIC for their next album. The band commented:
“We are extremely excited to have signed with earMUSIC. Not only do we have an incredible team to work with, but we are label mates with iconic artists like Deep Purple and Alice Cooper. To say we are psyched is an understatement.”
Max Vaccaro, general manager at earMUSIC, added:
“We have been given the chance to listen to many songs in pre-production stage and we were completely impressed by the energy and the songwriting quality. Skid Row have reached great levels of success in the ’80s and the ’90s, but we are sure that they have all they need today to open a new chapter in their career and return to be one of the leading names in the hard rock world.”

Mason Hill’s debut album “Against The Wall” has been generating quite a buzz in the UK and it’s easy to see why. The effort is a powerful display of modern rock that is perfect for fans of artists like Theory Of A Deadman, Nickelback, and Shaman’s Harvest.
The effort kicks off with the slow intro track “Reborn,” before really blasting off with “No Regret.” The latter gives you a sense of what to expect from the rest of the record, catchy post-grunge tracks comprised of great musicianship and impeccable vocals.
As one moves further through the record, they will continue to find bangers such as the title track, “Broken Son,” and “D.N.A.” These three songs find the band at their best. They are infectious, anthemic, and keep the listener wanting more.
From there, things slow down a bit with the ballad “Who We Are,” before picking back up with “Find My Way” and “Hold On.” “Hold On” in particular is especially killer with a riffy, Black Stone Cherry vibe that you can’t help but jam to.
That energy then carries over to the power ballad “Out Of Reach” and the rockin’ “We Pray.” However, things start to slow down again with “Where I Belong,” which offers a more emotional side of the group’s sound as they bring everything full circle by ending with “Reborn (Prologue).”
All in all, “Against The Wall” is an amazing album from a band that have the potential to make it big in the future.
The Struts have teamed up with Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, for a new song titled “Low Key In Love.” You can check out that track below:
The Struts frontman Luke Spiller commented:
“‘Low Key In Love’ was written after a date in Los Angeles at 70’s retro bar, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s. I walked into the studio explaining that we needed the song to have the essence you feel when entering the bar and absorb the vibe.
When we decided to explore the idea of a duet, I thought back to that night and remembered that Paris played a brilliant acoustic set. Something inside was telling me that everything happened for a reason, so I decided to message her.
I’m convinced some things are just written in the stars. Bringing in Paris just gave the song a whole new dimension and really brings the story to life. She is beautiful and brilliant. A star.”
“I first heard of The Struts when I went to go see Mötley Crüe play their final set on New Year’s Eve night at Staples Center a few years ago. The boys opened up for them and I had no idea it was going to be as incredible as it was. I just remember turning to my friend and saying ‘who the fuck are these guys!?’ I was so blown away by their talent, their stage presence, and their energy.
It felt like I had time travelled and got to experience what rock’n’roll was at its prime, like with The Rolling Stones and Queen. I started listening to their music and would see them at events here and there, and we’ve always been pretty friendly online.
When Luke asked to work with me, it was an immediate yes. It’s been a privilege and an honour to sing on a song that I know means so much to Luke, and I’m grateful for the friendship that has sprung from such a lovely project. It’s unlike anything I have ever done or thought to do before, and I’m here for it!”
