SoleMark: Grooving, Jamming and Funking Up South Florida

One of the main things we like to do here at Guitar News Daily is showcase new bands that stand out and are doing things a little differently than the norm.  I was lucky enough to come across a newly formed South Florida 4 piece group called SoleMark.  Let’s take a closer look and see what SoleMark is all about.

Mike Love Permanent Holiday

Mike Love takes a Permanent Holiday

This isn’t an article that is so much about Guitar News as it is about FREAKIN AWESOME guitar! If you haven’t heard of Mike Love (no not the one from the Beach Boys) you need to stop what you have going on right now and cut out about 11 minutes so you can watch this video. The video is simple and straight forward.  A guy with a guitar and a guy with some percussion and a hell of a lot…

Tween Metal Band Unlocking The Truth Signs to Sony

These days, having the support of a major label is often the difference between making it and going bankrupt for a band. No matter how much complaining they do, major labels definitely have access to assets and monetary sums that are far out of the reach of an independent label. This leads to the major labels often having first pick of artists on their roster, which makes the choices each of the three company’s respective A & R departments make…

Asking Alexandria Takes Time Off

Okay, okay. We’ll admit it. Perhaps that headline is a bit misleading. You see, according to frontman Danny Worsnop, the band is still together and working on new material, but fans shouldn’t expect to hear anything for quite some time. You see, the band has already declared plans to take the first half of 2015 off from touring and producing in an effort to redefine their sound. Once that sound has come into formation, the band will need to pen…

Guns N Roses

In what seems to have become a trend in recent months, yet another classic rock act has announced plans to take some time off of touring. This time, the group is heavy metal legends Guns N’ Roses, though they aren’t planning on being gone for long. According to keys player Dizzy Reed, it would be highly unlikely to see the band attempt any other touring or music making for the rest of the year. However, he claims to be band…

I’ve been anticipating moe. coming to Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale for several months.  As soon as it was announced I made sure my schedule was clear and that I had my tickets.  Even though it seems like the band has been on the road non-stop for the last year this is the first opportunity I had to catch them this year. Before I get into the incredible show let me tell you a little about the venue. The maximum…
