Skillet drummer Jen Ledger has released the official video for ‘Not Dead Yet’. She released her first solo EP, titled “Ledger”, on April 13 through Hear It Loud, a label imprint launched by Skillet frontman John Cooper and his wife, Skillet keyboardist Korey Cooper.

“My mom and dad hated watching it. They definitely don’t love the video for sure”. “I made it more violent at first, but everyone was like, ‘Ugh!’ I was trying really hard to make it feel real and gritty, but apparently, I went a little bit too far.”

“I felt in my heart that I was meant to write the treatment because the song is just so personal to me,” she says. “I wanted the video to feel as real to me and as personal to me as the song does, and it just meant too much to me to choose one of these other treatments.” Continue reading »

Power Quest are delighted to welcome guitarist George “The Kid” Karafotis into the band, replacing Andy Kopczyk who left the band earlier this year. Hailing from Thessaloniki, Greece, George also plays in the bands Vermillion Days (Greece) and Wild Willy’s Gang (Norway) and was previously a member of Raven Lord and Exorcism.

Power Quest keyboardist and founder member Steve Williams had this to say on the matter. “It’s fantastic news to have George as part of the band. I’ve known him for a couple of years now and our drummer Rich has known him for 5 years since they played together in Raven Lord. George obviously brings a highly skilled level of guitar playing to the table but in addition to that he also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. On top of that he’s just a bloody nice bloke haha! I look forward to hitting the road and the studio with George in the months and years to come. Welcome aboard matey”

George recently travelled to Southampton, UK to meet the band and undertake his first photo shoot as a PQ member ahead of rehearsals and live shows coming later in the year. Continue reading »

Silent Planet have released a new single/video, ‘Share the Body’. “This song is a tribute to the many people I’ve met who struggle with opioid addiction,” frontman and lyricist Garret Russell explains. “I hope it can speak into the past trauma or present reality of addicted persons, and push them to get help before their need takes everything.” ‘Share the Body’ is the latest single, following ‘Vanity of Sleep’ and ‘Northern Fires’, from Silent Planet’s upcoming album “When The End Began,” due out 11/2/18 via Solid State Records.

Since forming in 2009, Silent Planet have steadily gained traction by playing local venues throughout California and expanding to the DIY touring scene throughout the United States. Over the past 9+ years, the band gained prominence thanks to their vast array of influences, anchored by Russell’s master’s degree in psychology and field experience as a mental health therapist. As a result of their continued momentum, Silent Planet took home the “Underground Band of the Year” award at the 2017 APMA awards. Continue reading »
