Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy Award-winning band Chicago will celebrate their 56th consecutive year of touring this year on the road, where the 10-piece has been since the world returned from the pandemic. The legendary and astoundingly enduring band is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades. With unparalleled longevity, the band has never missed a year.

After an incredible 38 albums Chicago's uniquely timely and timeless music unites multiple generations of fans. The now 10-man band is touring for the duration of 2023 and continues to sell out venues night after night. After 56 years, the founding members Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane and James Pankow continue to drive the band into new territory - while staying true to the hits (so many hits) their fans come again and again to see. They released their 38th studio album Born For This Moment last year, as well as The Last Band On Stage, a documentary film about the never-not-touring band's experience during the pandemic (and onstage the night the world shut down).

The Winery Dogs released their latest video today for "Breakthrough." It's from their critically acclaimed and aptly named third album, III, which was released February 3 on the band's Three Dog Music label (via Burnside Distribution/The Orchard) and is available on all digital formats. The first two videos from III, "Mad World" and "Xanadu," were filmed in Los Angeles last November.

"We wanted to release a third video for the album and honestly, it wasn't easy to decide," declares Richie Kotzen. "We went with our song 'Breakthrough,' because it's already in the live set and is a song our fans have been talking about with us during our meet and greet sessions. Particularly the lyrics and the storyline, 'Because we're who we are, we'll never be what we were,' feels like it is resonating with folks. Rather than do a full-blown script video with actors, we went with a performance style video of the song. Our longtime friend and videographer, Vicente Cordero, came out to visit us on the road and we told him to 'shoot it all. Get as much footage as you can and we shall put something together.' Here it is...we hope you dig it." (continue)

Louise Post - of seminal band Veruca Salt - is sharing the video for her first debut solo track "Guilty," a perfect reverie of guitar haze. Directed by Meeno and written and produced by Post, the video showcases a married couple's relationship on the fritz with no one person more guilty than the other in their wrongdoings.

About the song, Post reflected, "I wrote this on a Tuesday and recorded it on Thursday, writing most of the lyrics on the drive from my house over to the studio. This song literally poured out of me. I was sleeping when it woke me up and demanded to be written. The first verse and chorus landed as an accusation, but then I realized it was far more interesting, and much more true to life, to have everyone in the song be guilty of something. To have the narrator own up to her own guilt, and then acknowledge the universality of it all. I mean, what would we be without our secrets? The song is ultimately about not taking ourselves so seriously." (continue)

LA rock duo Teenage Wrist share their new single "Diorama" today. Following the bright nostalgia of their latest music video, "Sunshine," the new song is led by the muddy resonance of a down-tuned acoustic guitar with haunting vocals severed for a moment of grating distortion. As "Diorama" unfolds, an electronic drumbeat is joined by psychedelic synths and a soaring melody, marrying alternative rock with the band's signature shoegaze sound.

On its existential lyricism, vocalist, guitarist and bassist Marshall Gallagher explains: "It's about seeing the world through your own microscopic lens, and how all the insignificance, irony and existential dread are magnified by the technology we've become dependent on. We all know this feeling, looking at your phone for hours, watching everything unfold and crumble. All the tragedy and injustice outside your walls, and the feeling of utter uselessness against it. Yet life goes on and you continue existing." (continue)

"Summer Never Felt This Sad" is a song about a secret relationship. I fell in love with a friend, it was a beautiful but treacherous romance that came crashing down in the summer. Nobody knew about us, although it was fun, the severity of our feelings soon became impossible to ignore. I wrote the song about feeling like a fake person, unable to admit my love, I was hurt and sadly we never spoke again. (continue)
