To preview the album, OTHERWISE has released an online video called “We Are Otherwise,” offering a behind-the-scenes look at the band’s emergence from local Las Vegas favorites to national radio prominence with their breakthrough single “Soldiers,” which currently sits at No. 31 at the Active Rock format and has already sold 40,000 singles leading into the album’s release.

“We don’t really have the words to convey what the release of this album means to us…” say brothers Adrian and Ryan Patrick, “so much hard work, so much sacrifice, so much heartache has gone into our music; True Love Never Dies is a testament to those who have gone before us, we are deeply humbled to honor them in such a way.”
Produced by the legendary Jay Baumgardener [Bush, Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Incubus] and mastered by Howie Weinberg [Soundgarden, Pantera, U2, Aerosmith], the 14-track disc is packed with hard hitting, anthematic rock tracks.

Swedish riff-god, Grand Magus, has released a lyric video of the title track off their upcoming masterpiece, The Hunt. Check it out below.
The Hunt is due out in North America on June 5th via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band’s Nuclear Blast debut was produced by Nico Elgstrand, who managed to put an authentic ‘70s mark on the record. The guitars roar, the rhythm front around the new drummer, Ludwig (Spiritual Beggars and others), grooves as hell and JB outgrows himself as far as the vocals are concerned. Thus, the trio has created a phenomenal and impressive heavy metal opus!
Fans can pre-order The Hunt as an exclusive CD/t-shirt bundle package or CD via the Nuclear Blast webstore: http://bit.ly/thehuntnbusa.

Los Angeles rockers Masque unleashed their latest single and video Rock n Roll Dog directed by Mark Jacobs for Zzyzx Films and produced by Keith Olsen (Ozzy, Whitesnake, Scorpions). “Written as a tribute to classic rock, Rock n Roll Dog celebrates the bands – from the Beatles to Black Sabbath – that influenced us growing up,” stated frontman Tony Kelly. “We tapped our roots and recorded a high octane party song that drives you to turn it up louder.” Director Jacobs dressed Masque in 60s Beatles attire in contrast to the band’s original 80s Hollywood glam style that is woven throughout the video. Additional singles will be released over the summer while Masque completes recording songs for their new album. Rock n Roll Dog is available iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon and all other major online distributors.
