Frontman Matt Tuck recently said You Want A Battle? was inspired by his own experience of being bullied. He told Billboard: "It took me a long time to actually pluck up the courage mentally and physically to stand up for myself - it was a momentous moment for me.
"I was able to stand up for myself and defend myself, and the band became the biggest 'f*** you' to everyone. That's what the song's about: going through hard times and coming through the other side." Watch the videohere.
The follow-up to 2013's Afterthoughts is described as "a wholly new musical and visual approach," inspired by "personal upheaval and a desire for change."
Mainman Giancarlo Erra tells Prog: "Short Story is one of the shortest and less-structured Nosound songs, both musically and lyrically - and yet one that perfectly sets the mood to 'different' and prepares for the album.
"The video introduces the places where the album was partly written and recorded, and illustrates the emotional extremes present, being at the same time delicate and thunderous without very much for the in-between." Read more and watch the videohere.
The band said of the record: "This album is as much yours as it is ours. We wouldn't be here doing what we love right now if it weren't for the endless support we've received from our friends and fans across the world over the last two years."
Prior to the UK dates, Chrissy Costanza, Dan Gow and Will Ferri, will head out on the road across the US, kicking off in Dallas on June 24. See the tour dateshere.
He described his 2015 album as a push in new directions, although he added: "I'd like to think that when someone puts on one of my records they would know from the first notes, 'That's Joe Louis Walker.'"
Walker tells CleveScene: "The next record is moving forward. It's more of a soul record. But I still have some guitar in there. I think there might be a few guests on it too."
And he credits producer Paul Nelson - known for his long collaboration with the late Johnny Winter - as a major creative influence. "The cool thing about working with a producer who's a guitar player is that you can dick around with guitar sounds," he says. Read morehere.
Stills tells Classic Rock: "I didn't realise they were really discussing it seriously until I read Mitch Mitchell's book. I was quite flattered. But they did call me. I was in Hawaii with a broken hand, so I couldn't go."
And asked if he was tempted, the multi-instrumentalist says: "I'd have done it in a heartbeat, as long as it paid. But there were an awful lot of people that had an awful lot invested in Crosby, Stills & Nash." Read morehere.
The track is taken from latest album Introvertigo, which was launched earlier this month. Patlansky says: "It's a sexy note to a woman, telling her to let loose in the bedroom."
He tours the UK next month. The studio version of Stop The Messin' will appear on the covermount CD included with June's edition of Classic Rock. Watch the videohere.
"Our new music video shows a freestyle session with a bunch of friends," say the band. "We wanted to have wonderful, unique, sexy and intense scenes, being lyrically dragged to a heavier side of performing. It shows the uncomfortable side of life (therapy), when you're recalling a night of living in the moment. But why feel awkward?
"Sometimes we're all forced to act differently, against our natural behaviour. See yourself cry in the mirror and ask where you wanna go and not, 'What have I done?'" Watch the videohere.
