The album is available in digital & physical editions (see track listing below), and includes the band’s #1 single “Help” (listen HERE). Other featured tracks include the dark pop song, “Periscope” feat. Skylar Grey, sports anthem “Born For Greatness,” and second single “American Dreams,” which have already become fan favorites via garnering top billings on major playlists such as Spotify’s Rock This, Beast Mode, and Digging Now, plus YouTube’s New Music, New Pop, and New Rock playlists. “Help” burst onto the global radio airwaves... 

 Two men. Two myths. One legend. The greatest love story ever told. Twenty short comic stories about the domestic life of “Henry” and “Glenn” and sometimes their neighbors “Daryl” and “John.” Glenn deals with issues with his mother while Henry shows off his darker side and indifference. These are two men who truly suffer best together.  

We keep hearing the whole argument that “rock is dead” because the industry isn’t selling like it used to. I don’t agree with that statement at all, but what’s obvious is that every rock band today that you come across needs to step up the game a little bit more. Instead of trying to duplicate Nickelback’s success or whatever it is Shinedown is doing, bands should at least be focusing on better songwriting to give the genre a bit of a kickstart. Life of Agony, who are no strangers to both the metal and rock scene, pulled through NJ on the release tour for their new album, A Place Where There’s No More Pain, and with this particular show they managed to bring together bands from across the board for one...

Clearing the air, know this in advance: The Night Flight Orchestra isn’t a metal band. Hardly one, as a matter of fact. Instead, this robust supergroup, which features the likes of Bjorn “Speed” Strid and David Andersson from Soilwork and Sharlee D’Angelo from Arch Enemy, is a love letter to 70’s and 80’s rock songs, and has been quietly putting albums out since 2012. Amber Galactic is the first major label album, and it’s a wonder as to why this group hadn’t been given this much publicity prior. The Night Flight Orchestra share more in common with bands like ELO and Boston than their melodic death metal counterparts. So, right away, if you can’t enjoy that style of music, it’s best to not even...
