SISTER SIN Frontwoman LIV JAGRELL Launches Solo Career with LIV SIN

livSISTER SIN Frontwoman LIV JAGRELL Launches Solo Career with LIV SIN

From the gutters of south Sweden, Liv “Sin” Jagrell emerged as a major force as the vocalist for hard rockers Sister Sin. Throughout their 13 year career, Sister Sin sold thousands of albums and toured the world with high profile tours supporting the likes of Slayer and King Diamond on the Rockstar Mayhem festival tour, as well as being a part of the Revolver Magazine ”Hottest Chicks in Metal” tour. Sister Sin toured relentlessly for over a decade across Europe and North America garnering an intensely loyal following of rockers that craved the band’s aggressive and melodic brand of hard rock.

When Sister Sin called it quits at the end of 2015, Liv knew that she had much more to give to her fans. From this, LIV SIN was born. Liv is currently working on a new music that shows the power, sexiness, and attitude that she is known for. Liv says ”for me it has never been an option to stop singing. I live for the stage and for my fans. I still miss Sister Sin, but I am very excited to work on my own project, and I can promise it will not be some soft pop rock. This is going to be metal deluxe, because that’s who I am!” LIV SIN offers a modernized hard rock sound to take Liv into her next phase, a sound that is destined to please both new fans and her longtime fans of Sister Sin.

Bud Light: America, they say we’re a nation divided. They say we disagree on everything, but they’re wrong. We agree on a lot: liberty, justice, ROCK MUSIC, and beer. Nothing brings America together like Bud Light and nothing brings rock fans together like Rock On The Range.  That’s why we’ve formed the Bud Light Party – a party for everyone. We are the fake political party America needs right now and we’re stopping by Rock On The Range to supply ice cold beer all weekend long. Because no matter where we stand on the issues, we all sit on the bar stools with our hands raised in the air listening to our favorite rock bands. America has seen the light, and there’s a Bud in front of it.

LYRIC VIDEO FOR HATEBREED’S PROVOCATIVE TRACK “A.D.” IS RELEASED

LYRIC VIDEO FOR HATEBREED’S

PROVOCATIVE TRACK “A.D.” IS RELEASED

Song is Instant-Grat Track for Album Pre-Orders at iTunes

New Album – The Concrete Confessional – and North American Tour
Both Launch May 13

This dream can’t be What it used to be, ever again

On Hatebreed’s upcoming release The Concrete Confessional (May 13, Nuclear Blast), a number of tracks provide a pragmatic look at issues that have become front-and-center in today’s New Normal, and the track “A.D.” is a case in point.  Reflecting what is today a challenging time, it’s a song that fuses together frustration with torrential thrashed-out guitars, double bass drums, and Jamey Jasta’s immortal growl.

“‘A.D.’ was a way that I could voice my frustration about the loss of opportunities available to the average guy,” said lyricist/vocalist Jasta.  “With the government and big business drowning in corruption and greed, the average person is being squeezed, so achieving the American Dream is becoming less and less real.”

Check out the “A.D.” lyric video here:  

“We all need to pay closer attention to what our elected leaders are doing,” Jasta added.  “Start locally, in your own community, make your representatives accountable.”

“A.D.” is now available as an instant-grat track when The Concrete Confessional is pre-ordered on iTunes.  Go to http://nblast.de/HatebreedTCCIT

The Grammy-nominated Hatebreed – Jasta, Frank Novinec/guitar, Chris Beattie/.bass, Wayne Lozinak/guitar, and Matt Byrne/drums – worked again with long-time producer Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Suicide Silence, Whitechapel) on The Concrete Confessional, the band’s seventh full-length recording.  The band will support the album with extensive touring, starting first with a headline run of the European Impericon Festivals 2016 that starts April 22 in Germany, and then headlining a 25-date North American trek with Devildriver (on all dates), Devil You Know and Act of Definance on selected dates.  Go to www.hatebreed.com for the complete itinerary.

A.D.

This dream can’t be

What it used to be, ever again

I don’t want this dream or the grievance it brings

Can’t justify greed at the cost of equality

Tangled in endless archaic chains

Of power, profit, gain

What about the poor bearing poverty’s marks

What about the sick whose lives are torn apart

What about those whose rights aren’t respected

A nation of youth dejected

It’s time to rethink this dream you call American

Corrupt beliefs that some will call their heritage

A burdened soul once searching for liberty

Crowned in debt as the new face of slavery

Tied by design with a senseless hope

And a never-ending rope

What about the leaders abusing authority

Corrupt moral compass, guarded bureaucracy

What about those who died so we can live

Our complacency must end

It’s time to rethink this dream you call American

Corrupt beliefs that some will call their heritage

This dream can’t be

What it used to be, ever again

Spirits of the slain

Hiding in the corners of my mind

Screaming when I kneel to look inside

Stomach fucking turning

And now it’s disconcerting

Fight fire with fire, you’ll see everyone’s burning

Turn on the TV for the murder spree

Get distracted while they take your civil liberty

Thoughts and prayers again…

Is that what it’ll take

Which industries profit while lives are at stake

Now hear the media fools discuss the killer’s mind

Staring at the screen to tell us what they find

Manifesto, dollar worship, get on your knees

So they can sell us a cure for the American disease

It’s time to rethink this dream they call American

Corrupt system of beliefs some will call their heritage

It’s time to rethink this dream they call American

So one day it can mean something real again
