Check out the latest on Golden Robot Records…
Wollongong punks UNDER THE INFLUENCE (UTI) have released their monstrous new single Crows via Riot Records.
Crows is the follow up to the emotionally intense previous single Gone. UNDER THE INFLUENCE (UTI) are once again razor sharp on Crows, delivering a massive burst of metallic punk backed with superb production. Crows lets out frustrations towards all the fake people in this world. The ones that lie and talk behind your back, all whilst pushing their jaded negative views onto others. It’s about the people that will tell you they can fly when they can barely crawl. This song has them fall apart stitch by stitch, line by line – and it’s only a matter of time before their facade crashes down around them. The mask falls off and the crows dive in to rip the eyeballs from their skulls.
Swiss hard rockers KING ZEBRA have dropped their new single Hot Cop Lady through Crusader Records (part of the Golden Robot Global Entertainment Group), which is now available on all digital platforms. Hot Cop Lady is the follow up to their recent single Wall Of Confusion (featuring Guernica Mancini of Thundermother).
Hot Cop Lady is a pure 90’s, hard-rock infused stormer of a track that harks back to the glory days. Who says you can’t have fun stretching the truth in a rock song? This fast hard-rocking crowd pleaser will get you air-guitaring the riffs and chanting the anthemic chorus.
Crossing I’s Dotting T’s (self- proclaimed “emo-gressive punk rock”) morphs raw, aggressive punk rock with pop-punk/emo rock, to create a unique sound with a raw experience that can make you feel your emotions while simultaneously making you bounce.
The band recently signed to Riot Records (part of the Golden Robot Global Entertainment Group) and have today released their debut single through the label, Dissatisfied, which is now available on all digital platforms.
Dissatisfied is a track about being overwhelmed with life and relationships of all kinds, as well as the inevitability of death while feeling like there is always pressure to live up to something.
Crossing I’s Dotting T’s have also announced that they are releasing their self-titled debut EP on the 6th of August. This 4-track EP was produced by Alex Estrada and mastered by Jack Shirley. The band’s self-proclaimed “emo-gressive punk rock” comes to the fore in this EP that touches on topics such as societal pressures, relationships, loss, and living life with no regrets.
Melbourne based SHOTGUN MISTRESS have released their highly-anticipated self-titled debut album via Crusader Records, which is available now on CD and via all digital platforms. The album has immediately caused a huge stir upon release, crashing in at #7 on the Australian overall iTunes Albums Chart and #2 on the Rock Albums Chart!
Shotgun Mistress is an explosive dose of pure indie contemporary hard rock at its most searing and exuberant. After a year of remarkable single releases, chart and radio play gains, SHOTGUN MISTRESS continues to solidify its position at the vanguard of Australian rock with this new album.
To celebrate the release of the album, the band have released a video clip for their hit single Bleed Me Out.
After recently releasing 3 classic live singles: King Of The Night Time World, Escape, and Make It To The Party, L.A. rock icons THE HOLLYWOOD STARS have released another live single and video for I Can’t Help It through Golden Robot Records. I Can’t Help It is out now on all digital streaming platforms!
I Can’t Help It is a song about a person who can’t help falling in love. No matter what he/she does, they see their person and fall deeper in love each day, each time they meet. It’s a mid-tempo song which builds just before the end when it reprises the opening.
The singles King Of The Night Time World and Escape’, both originally recorded by THE HOLLYWOOD STARS, were then made famous by Kiss and Alice Cooper respectively.
After hitting the UK rock chart at number 6 with their recent EP Intra, powerhouse UK hard rock trio SKAM keep the pedal down by releasing their second single and video Fade Out from their impending second EP Venous, which is now available for pre-sale/pre-order and will be released on October 1st.
Fade Out is the follow up to recent single Circles, and is out now through X-Ray Records on all digital platforms.
‘Fade Out’ is a sh*t kicking power groove of defiance against politicians and those in power. The lies and deceit of those at the top is always felt by the working class and we wanted to call them out. This year in particular we have all felt the effects of poor leadership. Although the song isn’t about any leaders in particular, it is a feeling mirrored in the thoughts of many. Play it loud and proud and raise a middle finger to oppression! – SKAM
Brisbane’s old-school punk rockers KOMBI KILLERS have released their new single ScuMo through Riot Records, and it is available on all digital platforms!
Australia was in the midst of the worst droughts in recorded history, bushfires raging the country with 75 lives lost. Prime Minister Scott Morrison (ScoMo) went on a secret holiday to Hawaii. That’s why KOMBI KILLERS dub him SCUMO! This energetic punk track doesn’t pull any punches.
In March, KOMBI KILLERS released their debut single for Riot Records titled Don’t Start – a classic punk anthem that delivered just the right amount of original old school punk attitude that satisfied the most rabid punk fan.
After spending a year in a COVID hibernation, MAMMOTH MAMMOTH have awoken from their slumber and are back, reunited with their classic line up (Frank ‘Bones Trobbiani, Ben ‘Cuz’ Couzens, Mikey Tucker and Pete Bell), to announce they have signed with global powerhouse Golden Robot Records. They are set to unleash a live album later this year, which will give fans who are currently unable to see the band in action a dose of MAMMOTH MAMMOTH live.
MAMMOTH MAMMOTH hail from the Black Spur Forest of Victoria, Australia, and proudly represent the freight-train power of Australian born and bred rock n’ roll. They describe their sound as “more awesome than God’s tits” and “patented good-time murder fuzz”.
“MAMMOTH MAMMOTH has always been an Australian, balls-out, rock n’ roll band, and we’ve proudly flown that flag in the pubs of Australia and clubs of Europe for almost 15 years. We’re pumped to be reunited and now signed with Golden Robot. They understand what we do and how we do it…and they also have their balls-out.” MAMMOTH MAMMOTH Guitarist, Ben ‘Cuz’ Couzens
International melodic death metal band ACT OF DENIAL have released their 5th single Your Dark Desires via Crusader Records (part of the Golden Robot Global Entertainment), which comes off their debut album Negative. Your Dark Desires contains trademarks of the late 2000s melodic death metal and features a ripping guitar solo from virtuoso Ron ‘Bummblefoot’ Thal (Guns ‘N Roses, Sons of Apollo).
Vocalist Björn Strid comments: “’Your Dark Desires’ is about inner struggle and being able to separate inherited angst and self-inflicted mental pain; once you’ve learned, you can move on and feel much stronger. The song is motivational and about acceptance.”
ACT OF DENIAL have also announced that their album Negative will be released on the 13th of August. Negative is a project that features some of the biggest names in rock and metal, and offers powerful and melodic death metal that takes the listener back to the late 90s and early 2000s. Combining aggression with majestic and melancholic choruses, Negative is an album that creates tension, both musically and lyrically, and keeps the listener there from start to finish.
ACT OF DENIAL was founded by Voi Cox (Koziak, Victim) & guitarist Luger (Koziak, Benighted-Cro). They are joined by Björn Strid (Soilwork), bassist Steve Di Giorgio (Death, Testament), drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Septicflesh) and keyboardist John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra).
Recently signed to Golden Robot Records (for Australia and NZ), L.A. based garage rock ‘n’ rollers VELVET STARLINGS have just released their new single Technicolor Shakedown which is available on all digital platforms.
VELVET STARLINGS recently released their first single off the label in Back Of The Train, and Technicolor Shakedown is the perfect follow up, further showcasing this highly talented act.
Technicolour Shakedown heads right down the psych-garage rock path and is the latest single and title track from the upcoming album. The track kicks off with an instantly infectious frenetic guitar riff over a Kinks style rhythm as it builds into a blast-off “sing & chant along” chorus, inviting the crowd to “turn it up & turn it on”. The song is an anthemic ode to going out into the live music experience. It colourfully describes the energy of catching your favourite band on the local scene and being packed in a venue “like sardines” – and loving every minute of it!
Hailing from Failsworth/Tameside in Manchester UK, CALLOW YOUTH epitomize everything that is great about Brit-rock. They are arguably the hottest young band to come out of Manchester in the last few years. In April, CALLOW YOUTH released their latest EP Straight To The End, which featured the hit track Over Your Head.
CALLOW YOUTH continue their momentum by dropping a new single – the instant rock classic Mad Machine. A storming track that epitomises the title, as the band well and truly amp up the machine.
Mad Machine discusses conversations with the ID, addiction, conspiracy theories, paranoia, isolation, fake news, mind control, the downward spiral into mental illness and the gradual subservience to the Corporation, ‘The Man’.
