"Metal act solidifies best lineup yet and ups its game with new disc" - Orange County Register


Restoring Force is the follow up to the band's 2011's acclaimed release The Flood, which solidified the California-based five-piece as a leading force in modern heavy music. The album was recorded at House of Loud in New Jersey and produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Papa Roach, A Day To Remember, Breaking Benjamin).

To this date, The Flood has sold over 125,000 copies and has been streamed nearly 16,000,000 times on YouTube, making it one of the most successful release in Rise Records' 22 years of operation.

Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have become such musical influences on some of today’s popular artists that the September 2006 cover of Spin Magazine’s headline read: “Why Hall and Oates are the New Velvet Underground.” Their artistic fan base includes Rob Thomas, John Mayer, Brandon Flowers of the Killers, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and MTV’s newest hipsters Gym Class Heroes who dubbed their tour “Daryl Hall for President Tour 2007.” One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.

Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegan in the 1970’s, Daryl Hall & John Oates have sold more albums than any other duo in music history. Their 1973 debut album, Abandoned Luncheonette, produced by Arif Mardin, yielded the Top 10 single, “She’s Gone,” which also went to #1 on the R&B charts when it was covered by Taveras. The duo recorded one more album with Atlantic, War Babies, (produced by Todd Rundgren) before they left and promptly signed to RCA. Their tenure at RCA would catapult the duo to international superstardom.  

From the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums—’76’s Bigger Than Both of Us, ’80’s Voices, ’81’s Private Eyes, ‘82’s H2O, ‘83’s Rock N Soul, Part I and ‘84’s Big Bam Boom. The era would also produce an additional 5 Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.”

Daryl also wrote the H&O single "Everytime You Go Away," which singer Paul Young scored a number-one hit with a cover of the song in 1985.

That same year, Daryl and John, participated in the historic “We Are the World” session as well as closing the Live Aid show in Philadelphia. 

By 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the NUMBER-ONE SELLING DUO in music history, a record they still hold today.

On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton.

Daryl Hall’s latest project is a multi-award-winning monthly web series (and Palladia TV show), Live from Daryl’s House (www.livefromdarylshouse.com). “It was a light bulb moment,” he says of the show’s genesis. “I’ve had this idea about just sitting on the porch or in my living room, playing music with my friends and putting it up on the Internet.”  Live from Daryl’s House is also aired weekly on the Palladia Channel every Thursday at 11pm EST/8pm PST.

The past episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Jason Mraz, Joe Walsh, Booker T and the MGs, Blind Boys of Alabama, Rob Thomas, Train, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Keb Mo, Dave Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Nick Waterhouse, Nikki Jean, Dirty Heads, Chiddy Bang, Rumer, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, Allen Stone, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

In April of 2011, John Oates released his solo album, Mississippi Mile on Elektra RecordsPeople Magazine gave the album 3 out of 4 stars.  “[Mississippi Mile] has the opportunity to reach across the board – and that’s a winning formula.” – Nashville Lifestyles

Daryl released his solo album, Laughing Down Crying, on Verve Records on September 27th,  2011.  The album has received a lot of critical acclaim from the Huffington Post, Spinner and Pop Matters, who said: “With the songs that make up this fine collection of American soul and pop music, Hall proves that with the pen and at the mic, his voice is more than capable of reaching the depths and heights of emotional truth.”

Most recently as a duo, Daryl Hall & John Oates released their first box set, Do What You Want, Be What You Are: The Music of Daryl Hall & John Oates.  The box set marks the first comprehensive multi-CD, multi-label deluxe box set compilation ever assembled from their entire career’s work, four CDs containing 74 tracks (16 of them previously unreleased). 

With the fortieth anniversary of their seminal second album, Abandoned Luncheonette, 2013 found Daryl Hall and John Oates very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.

RASCAL FLATTS REVEAL DETAILS FOR THEIR REWIND TOUR 2014

With Special Guest Sheryl Crow


Nashville, TN (January 22, 2014) – Superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts today announced their plans for the REWIND Tour 2014. The most-awarded Country group of the past decade, who has become ubiquitous with massive tours, will hit the road on May 16 with special guest multiple Grammy Award winner Sheryl Crow. Rising hot trio Gloriana has been tapped to open the shows.

“Gary, Joe Don and I are really excited about 2014! Brand new music, and a brand new tour called, Rewind. We're thrilled to have our good friend Sheryl Crow out with us. Expect some great musical moments and surprises! And we’re proud to have Gloriana opening. This is gonna be a show you don't wanna miss!" said bassist Jay DeMarcus. Last year, Rascal Flatts played to over one million fans and hit a career milestone with over 7 million concert tickets sold.

Fans can purchase tickets beginning January 24 for select cities as part of tour promoter Live Nation's Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com.

In celebration of the new tour and their latest offering, “Rewind,” the guys have been revisiting their beginnings with visits to Country radio stations nationwide and giving Forbes Life magazine a Nashville tour, even stopping by the Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar in Printer’s Alley where they first played together. The best-selling Country vocal group of the past decade has sold over 22.5 million albums and over 28 million digital downloads since their musical debut in 2000 and have delivered 14 #1 singles to the top of the charts. Rascal Flatts also have the distinction of being one of only four acts during the SoundScan era to have seven consecutive studio albums debut at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.

On March 4, fans will get a taste of the fresh sound and rewind back in time with some previously released tunes in advance of their forthcoming Big Machine Records album this Summer.

“I cannot wait to get back out on the road,” said Blake. “I had so much fun playing songs from Based On A True Story... and getting to see the crowd’s reaction to those songs was unforgettable.

January 15, 2014, NEW YORK—International superstar, Katy Perry, will kick off the North American leg of her highly anticipated PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR on June 22nd in Raleigh, North Carolina. The 46-city tour is presented by Goldenvoice, a division of AEG Live. She will be touring in support of PRISM, which debuted at number one on The Billboard 200 and remains in the Top Ten three months after
release.
 
The platinum album has given Katy her biggest ever single with "Roar", while "Dark Horse" just became her lucky 13th Top Ten hit on The Billboard Hot 100. Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara will open for Katy in different markets during the 4-month North American tour.
 
"THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is coming to light up some of my favorite North American cities this summer, as well as some new cities that you introduced me to through your video requests” said Katy. “This colorful show will bring you all the songs you know as well as ones from my new album, PRISM.

The 11-time GRAMMY® nominated singer cemented her status as a best-selling superstar with the global success of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, which debuted at #1 in 8 countries and spent over two years on Billboard's Top 200 album sales chart. She became the only female artist to have 5 #1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart ("California Gurls," "Teenage Dream,"
"Firework," "E.T." and "Last Friday Night"). The special edition, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, added "Part of Me" and "Wide Awake" to Katy's list of nine Top 40 chart-toppers (dating back to her multi-platinum debut album, 2008's One of the Boys, which generated four hit singles: "I Kissed A Girl," "Hot N Cold," "Thinking of
You" and "Waking Up In Vegas"). THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is Katy's first tour since 2011's sold-out California Dreams Tour, which was the subject of 2012's 3D feature film, Katy Perry: Part Of Me, the fifth biggest music documentary of all time.

Dierks Bentley will soon be loading up his bus for the 2014 Riser Tour — and he’s bringing along some very special guests!
Jon Pardi, Chase Rise, and Chris Young will join the ‘I Hold On’ hitmaker on his 2014 road run, which he announced via Twitter in a seriously creative way, hacking CMT’s page to share clues.
“Can’t wait to ‘Stay Up All Night’ and “party” with this dude,” Bentley wrote, hinting at Pardi’s place on the tour. “Here comes the next artist on the #RISERTOUR! Ready, set, roll..” he added, breaking the news about Rice.
“The last guy on the #RISERTOUR sounds good in the AM or PM. Can’t wait to see him play under the ‘Neon,’” the singer concluded, giving away the final act on his Riser Tour — Chris Young.
With a slew of talented acts booked to light up the stage, the 2014 Riser Tour is poised to please not only fans, but Bentley, too.
“This tour is the culmination of everything I’ve been working on for the past two years, both out on the road and in the studio recording Riser,” the star says. “I know what my fans want: a kick a– show, an affordable ticket and a good parking lot scene to get the pre-gaming going! The guys opening the show and getting the party started all know how to put on a great live show, and when it comes time for my set, I can promise that we are going big!”
He adds, “I have never been more excited about a tour.” The run kicks off May 9 in Charlotte, N.C.
In addition to his tour, the singer is also preparing to release his seventh studio album, ‘Riser,’ which will street Feb. 25. That same week, Bentley will appear at the first-ever Tropical Nights: Boots in the Sand event in Mexico. This summer, he’s booked for the 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival.
