TWRY Video of the Week: Hollerado / Got To Lose

Yay! A new video from Hollerado!

The band is back with another low budget one-shot masterpiece, once again teaming up with director Greg Jardin, this time adding L.A. dance troupe the Atomic Cherry Bombs and 53 umbrellas for “Got To Lose,” the latest single from the band’s debut Record In A Bag.  Check it out below!

Hollerado front man Menno Versteeg on the video:
“We love doing one take videos with Greg because they make us feel like we are in elementary school gym-class. This shoot was basically a giant obstacle course that we had to try and figure out before our day of shooting time expired.”
 

First Listen: Roms / Can’t Stop The Sound

Okay, we have to admit, we’ve been looking forward to this!!!  Roms makes their debut with the release of their first song “Can’t Stop The Sound” from their  (much anticipated!) upcoming full length album.  Roms takes influence from dark electro pop, post-punk and stylish garage rock. You can listen to “Cant Stop The Sound” on their Facebook page here.

About the song:
Can’t Stop The Sound” is a self confession about the consequences of failure,” according to  vocalist Charles Salvaggio. “It’s not necessarily a bad thing to fail at something.  When you do fail, and when you hit the very bottom, a lot of your shadows disappear and you are able to take a look at who you really are.

About the band:
As a band, we admire people who love music, so if that means that people buy, steal or trade our music or come out to a show, our music is our gift to anyone that is willing to listen to it.” – founder and guitarist Johnny Royal.

Who is Roms?: 
The band features former Filter and Loser band member Charles Salvaggio (vocals), Johnny Royal (guitar), Christopher Royal (bass), Jaison Karner (keyboards) and Josh Fresia (drums).

Roms will be performing with  Semi-Sweet on Thursday, March 10 at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA and on Friday, March 11 at La Cave in Newport Beach in support of Semi-Sweet’s CD Release Party. (This may be the ONE time we wish we lived on the West Coast!)

Roms will debut their music video to “Can’t Stop The Sound” in early March with other live performances to follow.

TWRY Video of the Week: Goo Goo Dolls/ Notbroken

The Goo Goo Dolls recently debuted their new video for the song “Notbroken”.

“According to the band it is the closest thing to an anti-war anthem that frontman Johnny Rzeznik and company will probably ever write. While the band has never shied away from social issues, they tend to focus their songs on more personal and intimate stories, and ‘Notbroken’ is a perfect example of that songwriting. On their website, Rzeznik described the Goo Goo Dolls inspiration behind the song:

‘Notbroken’ is now the Goo Goo Dolls most downloaded song on iTunes, surpassing their No. 1 hit ‘Iris,’ and the video for the lead single off their newest album, ‘Something for the Rest of Us,’ tells this difficult story in an interesting manner. Shot to look similar to the old silhouette iPod commercials, we see both the wife and her husband’s life play out on screen, with an ending that should leave you feeling a bit closer to both.

“I got a letter from a woman whose husband was in Iraq. He was injured – paralyzed – and he doesn’t want to come home. He wants to stay in the hospital. He’s ashamed of himself. He feels like he’s less. And she just wants to let him know that he’s still everything that she ever wanted. I don’t know, it just kind of came out. It’s kind of like I was writing a love letter to him on her behalf.”
