MP3.com is giving you a free download of the Jane’s Addiction song “End To The Lies” today only. Get it here. “End To The Lies” appears on their forthcoming album, The Great Escape Artist, due out later this summer on Capitol Records.
JANE’S ADDICTION have just released behind-the-scenes footage from their “End To The Lies” video shoot. The Alex Bulkley (“Robot Chicken”) directed video was shot in Hollywood, CA at Studio 905 where the band members were filmed giving a live performance in front of a white backdrop so they could later be superimposed onto women’s’ bodies. Watch the clip to find out more about the concept of the video from the director and learn how it mirrors what the band is all about from guitarist Dave Navarro. “The band hails from Los Angeles, CA,” explains Navarro. “We come from the street and so I think that the combination of the angst in the song, and the street element, the artistic element and then of course the love of sexuality and sensuality fused together, is pretty much what this band has been about since day one.” Fans can watch the official video in its entirety now.

This marks the second year that the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival has joined forces with Child Find of America. “We’re incredibly honored that the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival is continuing their partnership with Child Find of America in 2011,” said Mark Delluomo, Director of Operations, Child Find of America, Inc. “Last year’s tour promoted safety and awareness as well as raising over $40,000 which went directly to program costs. All of us at Child Find are very grateful to the producers, bands and fans who so generously contributed. We’re also excited that UPROAR has given us another opportunity to let thousands of rock fans know more about us through their website, programs and press releases. Traffic to Child Find’s website and Facebook cause page spiked over the course of the tour and continues to be vigorous. Many people still don’t realize Child Find not only investigates and resolves cases, but also has programs that work to promote safety and prevent abductions. For example, we’re really proud of the Parent Help and Parent Help for Military Families programs which are designed to help dads and moms parenting apart to problem-solve their challenges – including such issues as visitation, custody and child support. This kind of publicity can change all that.”

The Finn-formed rock group White Flame are in the midst of working on their third studio album together with a well-known Swedish producer Chris Laney, who has previously worked with bands such as Europe and Crashdiet, just to name a few. The band will be heading to Stockholm in September for some studio time and the long awaited record will be expected to hit the stores by beginning of 2012. White Flame as a group are of the same mind-set that this collaboration is going to work as an excellent stepping-stone to enter the international music market and a fine opportunity to showcase true Finnish rock / hard rock music to the world.
For the sole reason of working on new material for the upcoming album White Flame will only play two festival gigs in Finland this summer before heading to the studio. Preliminary discussions on an album release tour in Sweden are on the works and there are also plans to head out to Europe once again soon after the actual release date.
White flame has previously released the albums Yesterday’s News (2007) and Tour Bus Diaries (2009) in Europe, and a compilation album called RockHard (2009) in Japan.

New York Hard rockers BLACK WATER RISING’s self-titled debut album is now available in Europe on Metalville Records. The album which was released this week in a special digipak edition, is a collection of soul baring, angst ridden, riff heavy material that is proudly anchored in the foundations of traditional hard rock song writing. Its giant guitar driven monster riffs are served up on a bed of crushing grooves with soaring melodic vocals and big hooks.
Lyrically, the message is socially and politically driven by the dark times we live in. With darkness seemingly growing by the day, BLACK WATER RISING is a name that fits this band like a glove.
Drummer Mike Meselsohn is psyched that BWR’s debut album is receiving its long awaited European release:
“Since we released the album in North America last year, there have been many requests from our fans in Europe as to when they would be able to get the record. I am glad to say it is now available to them and we look forward to coming across the pond to bring our live show to our growing legion of supporters.”
Black Water Rising is:
Rob Traynor – Vocals, Guitar
Johnny Fattoruso – Guitar
Mike Meselsohn – Drums
Oddie McLaughlin – Bass
BLACK WATER RISING’S self-titled debut release is available now in North America on Giddy Up! Records. Giddy Up! Records is a brand new label with distribution through Sony/RED. The album artwork was designed by “Mister Sam” aka Sam Shearon, the renowned artist from England who has done work for Rob Zombie, Godhead and ESP guitars.
