Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign Release New Single Feat. Missing Persons Legend Dale Bozzio


“Somewhere There Forever” ft. Dale Bozzio by Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign

Dale Bozzio, legendary lead singer of Missing Persons, makes a special guest appearance and joins Mindy Milburn on vocals to record Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign's newest single, “Somewhere There Forever.” This is a quirky, eclectic song about a person who doesn't want to let go of someone they love and miss very much, but that person is now only in their memories.

“Walking down a graveyard path near here, 
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears,
You are calling so loquacious, You are falling so impatient
Then I realize you have disappeared”

Along with Dale Bozzio, Mindy Milburn & Laura Espinoza, “Somewhere There Forever” also features some of LA's most talented musicians including Geoff Pearlman (Echo in the Canyon Band); Michael Bluestein (Foreigner); Matt Denis; Noel Jasso, Miranda Miller & Julian Tomarin.

Listen to “Somewhere There Forever”: 



“'Somewhere There Forever' takes me back to the '90s with No Doubt's 'Tragic Kingdom' and 'Letters to Cleo.' This is the sound that I had hoped those bands would continue with on the radio, but that never happened. You continue to create music we wish we heard on popular radio. Great job.” - Warren Kurtz, Goldmine Music Magazine

“Somewhere There Forever” will be released world-wide on October 1, 2019 on all major music platforms including: iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify.

This is the second single released this year by Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign. Their song “Follow Me to the Sun” was released in April, 2019. Both will be combined into the bands upcoming third album slated for release in mid 2020. Both songs written by Laura Espinoza.



The band features Laura Espinoza - guitar; Mindy Milburn -lead vocals; Matt Denis -bass & Noel Jasso - Drums and will be performing in the fall on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.

“Somewhere There Forever”

Music & Lyrics by: Laura Espinoza

Walking down a graveyard path near here
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears
You are calling so loquacious
You are falling so impatient
Then I realize you have disappeared

Is this really a life without you?
An hourglass without sand

When I met you I never ever
Thought I’d see you there
Lying somewhere there forever.

Driving down the coast without a care
Speculating you are sitting there
Music blaring, people staring
Moonlight glitters, thrills we’re sharing
Then I realize you aren’t really here

Am I really just holding onto
Dreams without you here
Venerating, just speculating
You are waiting there
Waiting somewhere there forever.

This is just how I feel
This is why life always matters
This is just how I deal
When it’s time for the ever-after

Is this really a life without you?
An hourglass without sand
When I met you I never ever
Thought I’d see you there
Lying somewhere there forever

Walking down a graveyard path near here
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears
You are calling so loquacious
You are falling so impatient 
Then I realize you have disappeared
Then I realize you have disappeared
Then I realize you aren’t really here

REVEALS FIRST TRACK “THE SOLITARY PATH OF THE CONVICTED MAN”

KSCOPE – Digitally Released on October 25 and CD / LP Released on November 1

Bruce Soord, the multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and frontman for internationally renowned experimental rock outfit The Pineapple Thief, has confirmed the release of his second solo album.

Oh this path falls away from you
On this path there’s just one thing I must do

LISTEN TO “THE SOLITARY PATH OF THE CONVICTED MAN”


Taking elements from the recent musical developments with The Pineapple Thief, as well as an ambition to experiment with his own sound, All This Will Be Yours is an album of acoustic and personal vision from Bruce Soord. Described by Soord as an observational record, it is inspired by the joy felt by the birth of his third child juxtaposed by the local deprivation in his hometown.

Bruce explains, “Emotionally it was a pretty unique & eventful time, my wife was due to have our 3rd child at any time but she managed to come to see the final date of the TPT tour at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, after the show that night we returned home to Yeovil and the next day our baby girl arrived.  So, we had this new life in our lives and it introduced a very different perspective on the world around me. I was totally inspired and started writing almost immediately.”

He continues, “You’d like to think that something as simple as having a child shouldn’t impact on how you view things, but even the sight of a serene, sleeping baby in my studio while I was writing and recording, impacted on how I was inspired to write.  I was still observing. Taking walks in my hometown, witnessing the deprivation, the ‘incarcerated souls’ shuffling to my local drug den ‘number 158’, the screaming children on their commute to school. And the incessant sounds of sirens. I would take a mobile recorder out with me and some of these sounds made it onto the record. The kids, an old man walking along the street singing outside my house (‘Our Gravest Threat Apart’). And the sirens. The sirens appear throughout the record.”

The sound of All This Will Be Yours features modern production elements, as well as acoustic guitars delicately layered with samples. Ever present are Soord's familiar vocals, which deliver an emotive and accessible view into his contrasting feelings when writing about austerity whilst his newborn dozed in the studio. The audio has been recorded as two continuous linear pieces to replicate the pleasure of listening to an album on vinyl and was mastered by fellow The Pineapple Thief member Steve Kitch.

The new album, All This Will Be Yours, builds on Soord's momentum gained by The Pineapple Thief's multiple headline Europe and UK tours in support of 2018 UK #1 Rock album Dissolution and 2016 summer hit album Your Wilderness.  November 2019 sees The Pineapple Thief embark on their first North American tour. A prolific musician, Soord has also previously collaborated with Katatonia’s Jonas Renkse on fan-favourite album Wisdom of Crowds and produced 5.1 mixes for the likes of Katatonia, Opeth & Anathema.

Tracklisting:
1. The Secrets I Know [02:24]
2. Our Gravest Threat Apart [04:14]
3. The Solitary Path Of A Convicted Man [03:44]
4. All This Will Be Yours [06:04]

6. One Misstep [04:00]
7. You Hear The Voices[06:54]
8. Cut The Flowers[04:35]

All This Will Be Yours will be released on CD, LP, digitally and as a deluxe hardback book 3 disc edition featuring the album on CD, with an extra CD of acoustic re-workings and bonus studio tracks plus a DVD with All This Will Be Yours as a Hi-res 24/88 WAV stereo album, Hi res 24/88 WAV acoustic album and Hi res 24/88 WAV bonus studio tracks, all of which will also be available in 24/88 DTS 5.1 surround. PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE HERE

DAVID HASSELHOFF Releases Second Single "HEAD ON" Featuring THE CARS' ELLIOT EASTON!


Los Angeles, CA - Iconic star of the screen and stage and multi-platinum selling singer David Hasselhoff will be releasing his new album Open Your Eyes on September 27. The album is a new peak in an already illustrious career finding The Hoff joined by a host of equally legendary guest musicians including such talents as film composer Tyler Bates, producer Todd Rundgren, country singer Charlie Daniels, and The Stooges’ guitarist James Williamson who joined Hasselhoff on the album’s first single, the titular track “Open Your Eyes!”

Watch the video for “Open Your Eyes” here:


Now, Hasselhoff is ready to release his next single, this time backed by superstar guitarist Elliot Easton of The Cars on a superb cover of The Jesus & Mary Chain’s neo-psych stunner “Head On.” The song was a major hit for the Reid brothers back in 1989 and Easton and Hasselhoff’s version remain true to the song’s overall structure while adding a bit more swagger courtesy of Hasselhoff’s excellent vocal performance and Easton’s precise playing. Easton’s extraordinary skill as a guitarist helped propel his band The Cars into last year’s induction class to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Sadly, the music world mourned the passing of Cars’ frontman Ric Ocasek earlier this month.

Meanwhile, The Hoff continues his preparations for the upcoming 30th anniversary celebration of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a much anticipated tour through Germany, Austria & Switzerland beginning October 2!

DAVID HASSELHOFF Asks The World To "OPEN YOUR EYES!" In A Video For His New Single And Album!


Los Angeles, CA - Although most recognizable for his starring turns in the hit TV shows Knight Rider and Baywatch along with numerous feature film appearances (Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, Kung Fury, Click, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Dodgeball, and Marvel’s original Nick Fury: Agent Of Shield, among others) and roles on Broadway and the West End in productions of Jekyll & Hyde, Chicago and The Producers, megastar David Hasselhoff is ready to tackle a different role - the role of passionately earnest pop star singing for a new global consciousness in these difficult and troubled times. It’s a role not unfamiliar to Hasselhoff whose historic performance of the chart-topping single “Looking For Freedom” on the rubble of the newly fallen Berlin Wall in 1989 became a rallying cry not just to a reunited Germany but for all of the burgeoning democracies that were swept up in the winds of change.

For his new single, “Open Your Eyes,” Hasselhoff has resurrected a song from that same decade by dark rockers The Lords Of The New Church and brought it into the present where it sounds as fresh and vital as ever. “Open your eyes to the lies right in front of you” goes the chorus, echoing the growing discomfort felt everywhere by today’s media-saturated, politically marginalized population. Hasselhoff sings the refrain with legitimate fury and conviction against a backing track created by producer Adam Hamilton and renowned guitarist for the Stooges, and member of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, James Williamson. As Hasselhoff says, “I found a very relevant song that tells our story and am very proud to sing our story through this song. ‘Open Your Eyes’ is as relevant today as it was 30 years ago when it was written! Let’s make the world great again!”

To help bring the single to life, Hasselhoff has enlisted the video-making talents of Vicente & Fernando Cordero of Industrialism Films who, along with LA-based artist Dan Dowding of Media Pollution, have crafted a visual representation of the song. The video also leverages the power of social media by incorporating footage of Hoff fans from all over the globe who participated in the #EyesForHoff campaign. The final product is a video rich in spectacle but also carries its message just as effectively as it entertains.

Watch the video here:


Hasselhoff’s new album, also called Open Your Eyes, is set to be released on September 27, his first with LA-based label Cleopatra Records. The album features 12 other fierce new takes of classics such as Modern English’s “I Melt With You,” Echo & The Bunnymen’s “Lips Like Sugar” and David Bowie’s inspirational anthem “Heroes,” each of which is brought to life in collaboration with one of a diverse array of artists ranging from industrial wild child Al Jourgensen of Ministry, major film composer Tyler Bates (Guardians Of The Galaxy, John Wick franchise), country legend Charlie Daniels, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame nominee Todd Rundgren, ‘80s new wave icons A Flock Of Seagulls and many more! Open Your Eyes will be available on both CD in a deluxe digipak with a special collectible “Hoff Army” patch, on vinyl in limited edition RED vinyl and on all digital formats starting September 27!

Hasselhoff will also be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with an explosive tour through Germany, Austria & Switzerland beginning October 2!

2 Oct - Swiss Life Hall - Hannover, Germany
3 Oct - Max-Schmeling-Halle - Berline, Germany
