Artists
Black Stone Cherry

Kicking the door open into2023,Black Stone Cherryhaverevealed a brand-new song,"Out of Pocket."Thesong is out now via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group and is available on all streaming platforms.You can listen to itBlack Stone Cherry-Out Of Pocket (Official Audio)Out of Pocket" is the band's first new song since the release of their 2020 album The Human Conditionand is another trademark rocker from their locker. Emotionally rousing with a roof-raising battle crychorus, it shows the band at their anthemic best. The lifelong friends Chris Robertson, vocals/guitar; BenWells, guitar/vocals; and John Fred Young, drums, welcome their new bass player Steve Jewell on hisfirst studio recordings, having slayed the stages with them over the past two years. Talking about thesong Chris Robertson says, "’Out of Pocket’ is a song born out of that exact feeling. The song was what Ipersonally, and I think a lot of us, felt over these very trying last couple of years. Facing your demons,knowing that you have to come out the other side stronger than before." Over the past two decades,the Kentucky Southern rockers have shaken stages from arenas to festivals across Europe, bringingthegood times every time. In 2021 they fulfilled a lifetime ambition of playing London's iconicRoyal AlbertHall, bringing an incredibly emotional and powerful performance. Now it's time to blow the roof offthose arenas once again. Black Stone Cherry have 2023 firmly in their sights and are taking it, lock, stockand barrel.

Saint Asonia
  1. By turning inward, Saint Asonia amplify every element of their signature sound. Skyscraping hooks soarhigher, while arena-ready rhythms rattle harder. The guitars cut deeper, and the lyrics resound louderthan ever.The quartet—Adam Gontier [vocals,guitar], Mike Mushok [lead guitar], Cale Gontier [bass],and Cody Watkins [drums]—find power and strength on their aptly titled 2022 EP,Introvert[SpinefarmRecords].Saint Asonia initially unitedtwohard rock luminaries under a new banner. Respectively,Adam and Mikehad each reached stratospheric heights in Three Days Grace and Staind, toppling charts, packing venues,and selling millions of records. As such, their union captivated audiences worldwide. In the wake of their2015 self-titled debutSaint Asonia,Loudwirechristened the band its“Best New Artist”at theLoudwireMusic Awards. The 2019 follow-up,Flawed Design, yielded the blockbuster single “The Hunted” [feat.Sully Erna of Godsmack], generating over 15 million Spotify streams. In a“4.5-out-of-5-star”review,NewNoise Magazinedeclared,“Any fan of hard rock (whether they’ve listened in recently or not) should giveSaint Asonia a spin.”Plus,Loudwireapplauded it as one of the“The 50 Best Rock Albums of the Year.”Not to mention, they toured with everyone from Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, and Seether to AlterBridgeand Mötley Crüe.Unfortunately,Flawed Designnever received a proper tour due to the Global Pandemic. However, themusicians buckled down and wrote what would becomeIntrovertduring the downtime.“The title was fitting with the way the songs were written,” observes Adam. “We wrote and recordedindividually. It’s a weird situation to make a record and not be in the same room as your band. I felt likeanIntrovertwhen I was working on these songs.”This time around, theyrecordedwith producer Anton Delost [Cleopatrick, Seaway, Hollow Coves]outside of Toronto. The producer injected a fresh perspective intothe project as did recently welcomeddrummerCody (who played in Art of Dying withCale). Meanwhile, Mike recorded remotely fromhishome studio inConnecticut.“We had a blast with Anton,” Adam goes on. “He played a big part in the sonic changes. It’s a littledifferent for us, but it’s still pretty heavy. He understood what we were hoping to accomplish. It’s SaintAsonia.”The guys initially teased out this phase with a heavy and haunting take on The Weeknd’s “BlindingLights,” tallying millions of streams. However, they properly introduceIntrovertwith the single “Above ItAll.”Airy electronics brush up against clean guitar as Adam declares,“It’s time to take a stand and saveour lives.”A chugging verse gives way to an irresistible hook punctuated by a hummable guitar lead.“It’s the first oneI actually wrote,” he recalls. “I wrote it about standing up and paying attention to whatyou’re told to do as a society and then making your own decisions. You’re not necessarily acting orreacting as people want you to. We’re all told so many things about what’s right or wrong. There was alot of misinformation.‘Above It All’is about making the right decision for yourself.”Then, there’s “Chew Me Up” [feat. Johnny Stevens of Highly Suspect].Johnny’s bluesy timbre serves asthe perfect counterpoint to Adam as the slow burning track builds towards a catharsis with teeth.

    “We’re big fans of Highly Suspect, so we were really excited to have Johnny on the song,” he goes on.“Our styles are a little bit different, but he did his thing. It turned out amazing.Lyrically, it’s about cancelculture. People are influenced by things online and try to be who they’re not on social media platforms.There’s a lot of pressure. The song is a realization it doesn’t matter. The internet and social media canchew you up pretty quickly and spit you back out before you even know it.”Elsewhere, “Left Behind” culminates on a scorching guitar solo, while “Bite The Bullet”hinges on a thickbass line and candid lyricism.“My dad passed away about a year ago, and‘Bite The Bullet’hits home,” he admits. “He always used touse the phrase‘Bite The Bullet’when I was growing up. The song remembers him and how he told meyou can’t change things that are out of your control. It’s a good reminder of my dad.”In the end, Saint Asoniaconnect closer than ever onIntrovert.“This band means a lot to me,” Adam leaves off. “It’s been an incredible outlet, and it’s become a family.I love the guys and the freedom we have to create. I couldn’t ask for a better situation. I hope people digit andlove the music. If you relate to it and drive down the road blasting it, that’s the most I could askfor.”
Any Given Sin

Inner struggle incites outward expression. Any Given Sin transfigure conflict into caustic and catchy hard  rock punctuated by metallic intensity and alternative intimacy. The Maryland quartet—Victor Ritchie [vocals], Mike Conner [guitar], Rich Stevenson [bass], and Mike Showalter [drums]—encase these unrestrained emotions inside arena-size anthems with bold hooks and bludgeoning riffs. Amassing 
nearly 22 million streams, buzzing at radio, and building a devout fan base, the group perfect this pummeling and powerful style on their 2023 full-length debut LP, War Within [Mascot Label Group]. 

Over the years, the band’s grind yielded major traction as they tirelessly wrote, recorded, and honed a signature sound. In 2021, “Another Life” generated north of 5.2 million Spotify streams followed by “Dynamite” with 4.5 million Spotify streams. “Dynamite” and “Insidious” both cracked the Top 40 at 
Active Rock radio in addition to catapulting to #1 on SiriusXM, overtaking the fan-powered “Big ‘Uns Countdown.” By sharing their trials, tribulations, and triumphs, Any Given Sin ultimately offer a 
communal catharsis for fans to partake in. “When you listen to us, we hope you feel like you’re not alone,” Ritchie leaves off. “No matter what you’re dealing with, the music showsis a reminderthat 
someone hears you.” “A lot of it may sound dark and depressing, but there’s a positive message,” Conner concludes. “Keep going.”
