Hey rockers and welcome back to this week’s rock news roundup! Check below to see what your favorite rock artists are up to this week.
Matt Sassano shared his announcement and it’s not only exciting, but also well deserved. He is now with Rockfest Records! Check out his post on that here. Rockfest Records has produced many amazing artists, such as Seventh Day Slumber, The Letter Black, Fireflight, The Protest, and many more! Matt Sassano is such a great addition to the family and I can’t wait to hear more from him. Check out this song by him called “Not My Name” below!
The Grizzly Awards took place a few days ago and it was the highlight of my evening. If you somehow missed the show you can check out their post with a list of the winners here. You can also watch the awards show below! Congratulations to all the winners, you deserve it! And shoutout to all the nominees as well. I keep saying each year that the voting is impossible with so many amazing people in the running. And last but most certainly not least, shoutout and love to everyone involved in making the awards happen. I am grateful to know many of you. Every single one of you plays a crucial role in our rock community.
GFM released their new single “Framing My Perception”. Check it out below and go here for other ways to stream/buy. I have to say, this song is now in my top three favorite songs by them! (The other two are Smile and Give Me a Sign)
Skillet is handing out one $500 visa gift card to a lucky winner who makes a tiktok video for their Finish Line challenge. You can check out their post here (I approve of Jen’s version haha) and read the rules for the challenge here!
RELESSER has some new music in the works with at least one new single they hope is coming out within the next couple months. Check out their post on that here! Also, the post mentions they might play new music at Kingdom Come Festival in Indiana, and I cannot wait to hear it if so! (I’ll be there, who else will be?)
Relentless Flood is releasing new music tomorrow! Check out their post about that here. I’m keeping my eyes peeled and my ears ready, and so should you!
Jodi Essex is releasing a new single called “Fearless” next month! But wait, there’s more! Jodi did an interview with Dave Hawkins on the the Antidote radio show; In the interview she reveals she is coming out with an EP (unnamed at the moment) on June 24th! You can listen to the interview here and she starts talking about the EP (and the new single!) at 22:40. I cannot wait to get my hands on the EP!
