Check out the latest on Golden Robot Records…
Orange County’s legendary rock-ska-punk band WANK are back with an upbeat new video for their recent single Blue Skies; which has been adopted as California’s new theme song! Blue Skies brings exactly what is needed right now; iconic visuals and fresh, bright and positive vibe to help soothe what has been a tough, gloomy year.
Blue Skies comes off their latest album White Knuckle Ride which was released via Die Laughing Records.
Brisbane’s alternative post-punk rock act Dead Dirty Dinosaurs are back with a brand-new single and first for Riot Records, titled Monica.
Monica Gaztambides, a character in the series Money Heist, has won the Dead Dirty Dinosaurs hearts. An inspiration of strength and kindness, she also has a name that the DDD’s couldn’t help fitting into a song somehow. It’s a lot of fun to say, and when you throw some dirty guitars and massive drums on top and start screaming about nightmares then you’ll get to Monica, the new single from the Dead Dirty Dinosaurs.
Ghosts of Sunset features rock veterans John Merchant and Todd Long who have made music for 30+ years for 615 Records Nashville, IDOL/RCA records, and independently.
Their first single Miles In Between, out now via Golden Robot Records, is a hark back to the glory days of hair metal, and one listen will transform you right back to when the Sunset Strip was THE place to be.
The track features John Merchant (Vocals, Guitar), Todd Long (Bass, Harmoney Vocals), Johnny Monaco (Ex Enuff Z’Nuff – Lead Guitar), Kent Slucher (Luke Bryan – Drums) and Brian Roth (Keyboards).
“The story behind Miles In Between is once you’ve signed the big record deal, it’s time to take it on the road and share it with the world. The road is unrelenting. It changes lives, crushes relationships and can lead a trail of career ending destruction” – Ghosts of Sunset
Euro melodic metallers, NoN formerly Now Or Never have released their new single Ordinary World via Crusader Records. Ordinary World is a cover the Duran Duran classic. Taken from the band’s upcoming album III, Ordinary World is an exciting glimpse of what’s to come from this incredibly talented band. NoN put on a unique Euro melodic metal slant on this legendary song, adding new life and dimension to it.
Riot Records, part of the Golden Robot Global Entertainment Group, are extremely happy bring you the new single from Denver, Colorado’s In The Whale titled Drug Dealer.
Drug Dealer is a sludgy, bombastic and epic post rock-esque battering. In The Whale has delivered a low-end sonic treat that sits alongside contemporaries like Big Business, Mantar and High On Fire!
Hookers & Blow, the now legendary project formed by longtime Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, recently hit the studio to record a covers album that will be released later this year via Golden Robot Records.
Now the band has released their fourth single, a cover of Led Zeppelin’s Trampled Underfoot.
Guitarist Alex Grossi comments: “This song was added into our live set during our first residency at The Whisky A Go Go in 2013 for Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot) to come down and jam on, when it came time to picking songs to cover for this record, naturally we had this one on the list, with Frankie on drums.’’
The track was recorded individually and mixed largely in quarantine earlier this year and also features Mike Duda (W.A.S.P.) on bass. Trampled Underfoot follows the recent singles Shakin’ (Eddie Money), Rocks Off (Rolling Stones) and Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie).
Hookers & Blow would like to dedicate the release of Trampled Underfoot to their good friend and colleague, the late Frankie Banali, who passed away recently after a battle with cancer. A portion of proceeds from this single will be donated to https://www.pancan.org/
