Music Submission, Grand Guignol Diabolique

Artist or Band Name: 
Grand Guignol Diabolique

Grand Guignol Diabolique was born in 2008 from the ashes of a band called Beat Babol , but also collecting the legacy of another band of which Franco was the mind, namely the Bohemien Flambé . From them they inherit the French-speaking name and the desire to shout to the world their desire to live by creating, and not to live vegetating as it now seems practice. The first album is the eponymous " Grand Guignol Diabolique " (2008), available through CDBABY on numerous digital platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc. The second "II" comes out in 2011, but like all the following productions, it's being released on Bandcamp, because when you are unknown to most people, a free platform, albeit small, is better than a giant where you are just a drop in an ocean. The third CD is an EP released in 2013 and called "Di tutte quelle morti" . In 2015 "Export Diabolique" was released , the first CD to be sung entirely in English. It gets an excellent response, but remains a cult object, not being able to count on promotion and anything else necessary. Now, 5 years after, that Franco has spent dedicating himself to many other projects whilst facing life with a hard nosed face, the brand new "LINGUA" (2020) is released, son of the pandemic, of grief and boiling blood. On August 20th the first part (Volume 1) in a CD always available on bandcamp. 6 brand new tracks that will find good company with the other 6 already in advanced processing and that will presumably come out around November 2020 in Volume 2. The main reason for the title is because it is an album that speaks several languages. In fact, Franco's Anglophone, Francophone and obviously Italic soul coexist and therefore the songs are sung some in English, some in Italian and one in French, a dutiful homage to one of his projects that had more feedback (Bohemien Flambé), at a time in which there was still a lot of interest in music and people tried to be original, not photocopies of what "works".


Grand Guignol Diabolique is a ONE MAN BAND . Franco plays it all, writes it all and sings it all (with occasional guest stars) and despite some miserably failed attempts to form a real band, there is currently no live activity. But in the future it is not said that he won't try again, even if the times are very grim.

Music Submission, Lunar Reverb

Artist or Band Name: 
Lunar Reverb

Lunar Reverb released an EP called Younger Days. All of the tracks are radio ready and include metadata. We are looking to get some airplay, features, gigs, or reviews wherever possible. Below I have included my band information, links to our social media, press, and links to our music below. I hope you dig it. Either way thanks for the time and consideration! Band Name: Lunar Reverb About Band: Lunar Reverb is a group of music loving people trying to create a modern fusion of classic rock, punk, blues, pop and groove. They are an indie alternative rock band from Arlington, TX looking to spread music and good vibes. The band includes Lizzy Casarez the lead singer, Joshua Hanson on guitar/vocals/aux instruments, Zack Bryant on bass, and Bryson Allsup on drums. Lunar Reverb draws inspiration from Led Zeppelin, Sublime, Jack White, The Black Keys, female musicians from the classic rock era-today, and blues to create a more modern raw classic rock sound for their debut Younger Days EP. They have hit the scene running with shows throughout the DFW area including The Old Cocktail Lounge, Dr Jeckyll's Beer Lab, Reno's Chop Shop, and The Ridglea. Lunar Reverb has been featured in podcasts, Voyage Dallas Hidden Gems, and Divide And Conquer Music. Younger Days Description: We went for a more raw rock sound for our EP. Our sound pulls from artists such as Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, and Texas blues. The vibe of the album pulls from the struggles everyone goes through when they feel alone in their 20 something Younger Days. Einstein was written after Josh was going through the motions from job to job with the goal of playing music and feeling stuck in his ways. Purple Pistol of Love was originally a song Josh's dad wrote in his band. Josh rewrote the piece lyrically to coincide with his story of love. What Can You Do and 2020 both touch on the anxiety of a young adult in today's world. 2020 was a live jam Lizzy wrote lyrics to on the spot from a riff Josh was playing around with. We hope to get another studio recording of this track. Cautionary Tale was also lyrically written by Lizzy and Josh from a riff he was playing around with. Lizzy had a friend who was going through a sort of abusive relationship and pulled from that energy. Zack wrote Take Your Time all on his own. I feel like musically it compliments the meaning of What Can You Do. When the rain comes you need to weather it. In time the sun will shine again.

Music Submission, Gítabel

"Sounds From Gítabel" EP Cover Art
Artist or Band Name: 
Gítabel

Gítabel is a young four piece band, currently based in Argentina. The four of us came to this project after a good number of previous experiences, which spanned virtually any form of rock, and some more. Those projects were as diverse as the places where they were developed (Spain, USA, England, Argentina), shaping a particular and eclectic -but never forced- style that the band does not stop cultivating in its desire to reflect the universality of its imprint. We chose the songs for our first independent EP as a cover letter to our musical universe, but there is more material in the constant process of composition and recording. In the meantime, we have recently begun to articulate our networks to help drive the project, and to perform live; and we are in the search for the always important support of a suitable producer, label, media, etc...

Hello to the BBS Radio team!

We are Los Angeles band Yard Of Blondes, and along with our Record labels DIE LAUGHING RECORDS and GOLDEN ROBOTS RECORDS, we’d like to present to you our new release « Close to Home ». 
It’s a live EP session that we recorded during the quarantine featuring our songs « Murderology », « You and I & I » and « Lowland » that will be featured in our upcoming album « Feed the Moon » to be released in 2021 + the song « Pyramid of bones » a cover from the band The Voidz.
The EP will be released on July 3 2020. You can discover it now through this unlisted private link:  https://youtu.be/WwBmcgVX5Gg

It would be an honor to be featured on BBS Radio for airplay and/or an interview (we’d be happy to drive to your studio if invited!).

Do you think we could be a good fit?

The songs are the result of a collaboration with Billy Graziadei (from Biohazard) who produced the album. Mike Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beck..) took care of the mix, and Maor Applebaum (Faith No More) mastered the album.

A little bit about our previous releases from upcoming album « Feed the Moon »:

On Nov.1st 2019 we released the 1st single "You and I and I". The song featured special guest Davy Portela (Pleymo) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZKdOu2av70

On February 13 2020 we released the 2nd single « Lowland » : https://youtu.be/BFL0Yw6bknQ 

Both songs were plugged on editorial playlist « French Noise » and got airplay on 200+ radios (FM, Sirius XM, local and internet radios) in USA, UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Canada and Japan.
They both reached the top of USA College Radios charts.

Starveya

Hello,

This is Aaron from the band Starveya. Our new single "Moontide" is set to release at the end of this month and I hope that someone at BBS might be interested in featuring it. I have included the official press release below. Thank you for your time.

Aaron Martinez-Starveya

STARVEYA is set to release “Moontide” on May 29th, 2020, their first new single since 2018’s “Olde Crow”. Available here: https://soundcloud.com/starveya

STARVEYA is a psychedelic, alternative rock band from the fringes of Los Angeles, California. Originating around the turn of the millennium, their music can be described as a fusion between the classic studio recordings of the late 1960’s, and that of the heavier grunge movement of the early 1990’s. The band exemplifies both of these elements in their 2013 EP Stellar Womb, coming together to showcase its own fresh, modern sound.

“Moontide” is inspired by Bob Dylan’s take on folk music, particularly the historic, "My Back Pages". STARVEYA guitarist and primary songwriter Aaron Martinez, adds that the subject matter of the song was originally inspired by the tragic death of Pink Floyd’s Syd Barret. Gradually, the focus shifted to include all people throughout the millennia that were considered crazy or foolish in their own time, but later looked back on as geniuses, innovators and prophets. “A madman today is just a hero tomorrow” and “the saviors, they never get saved” are a few lyrics from “Moontide” that illustrate the lives of such visionaries as Giordano Bruno, Galileo, Socrates and Jesus Christ, who had the misfortune of being ahead of their times, and whose importance in history is only fully realized posthumously.

STARVEYA is currently in the studio working on their upcoming, full-length album Abandon All Muses, which is slated for a 2021 release.

Music Submission, Krachwerke

Krachwerke Illusion of Evolution album cover
Artist or Band Name: 
Krachwerke

We are very proud to present our first album, 'Illusion of Evolution'!

This is an eight track album and features heavy riffs and melodic overtones. This album is a labour of love to create great guitar tones, bouncing riffs and rhythms without being melancholic. The album was written, recorded and mixed by Krachwerke. It draws from many stoner, metal and Doom genres but tries to not 'sound' like any other band currently in the scene.

We hope the tracks jump genres and have something for everyone who appreciates the heavier things in life.

Overall the album is dedicated to our society, politics, evolution and our inherent failures as human beings. Even with our advanced society and the ability to reach space and theorise our universe, on a basic level we have not yet evolved far enought to look after each other or our planet.

Without lyrics the album allows us to reflect in our own way about issues that affect us all.
