Ross Valory marks the summer solstice by rolling out a dazzling video for his interpretation of funk-rockers War's classic cruising anthem "Low Rider." It's one of the highlights from the original Journey bassist and songwriter's current debut solo album All Of The Above (OID Music).

"Low Rider" is another visually colorful delight directed by Michael Cotten, who lensed the album's three other videos. It was premiered yesterday by Ultimate Classic Rock. Says Ross: "Michael Cotten has done exceptional work on the videos for every song on the album. It may be obvious to all that he is greatly inspired by my music. Michael and I are naturally in sync. Michael hears what I see. He sees what I hear. And, likewise! "With the exception of a few strategic edits recommended on my part," he adds, "Michael Cotten ran with the ball on this song from the beginning." (continue)

Felicity is thrilled to announce their new single "Nights In Your Bed". Set to be released on June 25 via Zodhiac Records, this song is what you would get if The Notebook, Twilight, Fall Out Boy, and Dave Grohl all collaborated to write a new song. Pre-save it now, here.

"Nights In Your Bed" is about confronting the inevitable truth that some connections in life, whether it's a friendship or romance, are better left as memories. We wanted to address the turmoil of realization and bitter endings, the cyclical nature of heartbreak, and the transient nature of fleeting passions. No one ever wants to feel like their time is being wasted, and we believe this narrative captures the urgency of acknowledging these uncomfortable realities and the struggle to escape the inevitable.

Internationally renowned guitar player Marcus Nand is thrilled to announce the release of his brand new single "Make A Little Time," the latest offering from his forthcoming solo album, The Traveler. Born in the UK and raised in Spain, Marcus Nand's musical journey has been deeply influenced by his diverse background in flamenco guitar, blues, and rock. His unique blend of styles has earned him acclaim in projects such as the metal band Freak Of Nature, featuring White Lion singer Mike Tramp, and the world music-influenced rock band Ziroq, alongside famed David Bowie bassist Carmine Rojas.

Released on the heels of the album's first single, the propulsive rocker "Long Way Down," "Make A Little Time" slows things down for a mid-tempo track that gives Nand plenty of space to showcase his tasteful guitar playing.

Swerve have premiered a music video for their new track "23", which is the latest single from their forthcoming EP "The Darkroom", that is set to hit stores this Friday, June 21st.

Greg Mahdesian had this to say about the song, "'23' is just fun for us. From the writing of it, to the recording, to the music video, it kind of really defined our point of view for the entire EP. I mean, it's dark if you take it seriously, but don't take it too seriously- just go with it. It references a lot of experiences in our lives- from hotel parties to failed ambitions to just generally living irresponsibly for a while before realizing "whoops, maybe that didn't pay off!" The key thing for this track, and the whole EP I think, is the idea that it's all been worth experiencing. Obviously life doesn't end at 23, but when you're 23 it feels like it might, and that might inspire you to act kinda stupidly. (continue)

Hot4Robot just released their new single "Just Human" from their new unplugged live album "Just Human" and to celebrate we asked Alex Radus to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

I started writing songs for Hot4Robot before the band was named. An interesting sequence because we were able to connect the band name to what we were writing about in a really intentional way. Apparently, I had a lot to say about humanity and technology. "Just Human" became the thematic heart of our music, and the band name followed. We write about other stuff of course, but it was a really fertile launchpad. (continue)
