T-Minus… til Enter Shikari’s THE SPARK blasts off

1024 576 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

UK post-punk/electronic/just seriously ridiculously great band Enter Shikari have been teasing fans (and lucky recipients of said fans re-tweets, Facebook posts, Snapchat updates, etc) but in mere hours, the tease turns real.  Their much talked about latest album “THE SPARK” hits Spotify shortly.  This, their 5th full-length studio release has generated major buzz, for many reasons; one being commercial sensibility.  Songs…

EN GARDE: ROUSING ROCK REBELS ENTER SHIKARI MAKING US NERVOUS WITH ELECTRIFYING STATEMENT

638 426 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

This ain’t your mama’s Enter Shikari.  No sir, in this latest video from their upcoming album “THE SPARK”, “Rabble Rouser” takes the UK band to a whole new level, and many say, a whole new direction.   An intended glaring departure from their much loved debut album “TAKE TO THE SKIES”, Shikari has kept Rou Reynolds firebrand protest vibe intact…

MY LATEST DISCOVERY: HOT PUNK ROCKERS FROM NORTH OF THE BORDER ‘HARBOUR’

556 720 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

I admit, I stopped in my tracks when I saw the (cheeky) press release about this band, of which, again admittedly, I’d never heard.  (Do Canadians use the word ‘cheeky’?) “Hailing from the blue collar city of Brantford, Ontario, the boys in Harbour decided to push aside their careers as male models to focus on fast paced pop punk/rock. When…

ROCK DOCUMENTARY HIGHLIGHTS ‘THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA’; ANNOUNCE HEADLINING FALL TOUR

671 377 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

It was a bit of a disappointment for me a while back when I was slated to interview the red hot Dayton, Ohio band The Devil Wears Prada prior to their opening slot on the “Killthrax” Tour, otherwise known as the Killswitch Engage/Anthrax/Anthrax/Killswitch Engage headlining switcheroo tour.  The bands were heading to Long Island during a minor weather apocalypse, and…

TRIVIUM BACK WITH NEW TRACK!

571 379 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

Trivium‘s “The Sin and the Sentence” is the first track since the critically praised “Silence in the Snow” album from 2015.  I love consistency — we also have a music video for those who like pictures.   In the past, the boys from Orlando have at times been touted and alternatively trashed for their propensity to progress musically; sometimes doing…

SPARKING A MUSICAL REVOLUTION: ENTER SHIKARI ANNOUNCE NEW RECORD, RELEASE VIDEO

1000 1000 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

Enter Shikari’s latest song “Live Outside” debuted yesterday.  Within moments, social media was abuzz; fans calling it ‘the perfect summer song’.  But as those familiar with the band know all too well, lyrical genius Rou Reynolds never met a loaded lyric he didn’t like.  And with today’s video release, true to form, it’s clear Reynolds and his equally talented bandmates…

ENTER SHIKARI’S PUNK-INFUSED SUMMER SONG OUT — NOW!

1000 1000 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

It’s fairly clear to anyone who knows me, has seen this site, follows me on social media, etc. etc. that I’m just a wee bit slightly obsessed with this band out of the UK.   It’s hard to describe them — they’re quite chameleon-like; each new release carries hints of the status quo, but with a big smack of ‘shakeup’,…

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS DEF SHOULD NOT JUST STAY IN VEGAS

1024 576 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

Psycho Las Vegas 2017…ah, such a delightful name!  It really makes you want to pack your bags and head to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino during probably the most excruciatingly hot months of the year in the desert!?  But that’s the allure of this festival.  The point is to get fired up (figuratively AND literally) for behemoth acts including…
