We All Bleed, the band’s third album, delves into familiar lyrical themes of betrayal and isolation, but there’s also more than a hint of renewal and resolution. “A lot has changed over the past three years,” says lead vocalist and co-songwriter Ed Sloan. “Being down and out is something I’ve had to confront like never before. There’s been pain, but I’ve also learned to dwell less on the negative, so there’s a feeling of rebirth, too.”
Crossfade will be playing Rock On The Range this Saturday, May 21st. Scheduled to play at 2:30 p.m. on the f.y.e Stage (subject to change). If you’re not going to be at ROTR, Crossfade have added a batch of June tour dates to their touring plans. See below if they will be playing a city near you.

Electro popstress Lights has created a new remix of her song “My Boots” called “Re:Boots” and for a limited time only she is offering it as a free download on her website here so grab it while you can!
“My Boots” was originally released in October of 2010 and is the first single from her soon to be released second album.
Unless you’re already “in the know,” the phrase Dengue Fever will probably conjure up thoughts of a mysterious tropical illness, not necessarily the enigmatic band who serves up an exotic blend of Cambodian melodies, Afro grooves, surf, and psychedelic rock. But that will change on April 19th, when Dengue Fever, the six-piece group from Southern California, releases Cannibal Courtship. The band’s first studio album in three years features 11 new tracks with songs sung in English and Khmer, Cambodian singer Chhom Nimol’s native language. First single “Cement Slippers” is a slinky, spiky rock track, reminiscent of what would happen if the B-52s met the Pixies in 2011, you can download it below for free.
Dengue Fever formed ten years ago after keyboardist Ethan Holtzman traveled to Cambodia and fell in love with the country’s unique take on rock music, heavily influenced by the surf sounds of the 1960s. His brother, guitarist and singer Zac Holtzman, had separately discovered the subgenre and, upon Ethan’s return to the States, assembled the other musicians: bassist Senon Gaius Williams, drummer Paul Dreux Smith, and brass/woodwinds player David Ralicke. But their sound wasn’t complete until they heard Nimol – a star in her home country who had performed for the King and Queen of Cambodia – sing at Southern California venue the Dragon House.
The Kills have a new album coming out this Spring on April 5th titled Blood Pressures. They debuted their first single Satellite recently and are now giving music fans the chance to download a second new song titled “DNA” for free. Download it here.
The song features background vocals by The REV Gospel Collective. Like what you hear? You can pre-order the album here and catch the band live at one of the dates below:
