Bohannons, ‘Red, White, Black and Pale’ – Exclusive Premiere

By Chuck Armstrong

Following their debut EP, ‘Days of Echo,’ and first full-length, ‘Unaka Rising,’ the Chattanooga, Tenn.-based rockers Bohannons are preparing for their latest endeavor, ‘Black Cross. Black Shield,’ set for release in January via This Is American Music. Today, Diffuser is beyond excited to premiere a taste of what’s to come with the brand-new music video for ‘Red, White, Black and Pale.’ Check it out above.

Opening with a beautiful mess of rock and roll, Bohannons’ ‘Red, White, Black and Pale’ is a track that commands your attention; it’s not merely background noise. And with the accompanying music video, the band set out to make an even more attention-grabbing visual experience.

Watching the video, the dark undertones of the song are beautifully and eerily brought to life. Talking about ‘Red, White, Black and Pale,’ frontman Marty Bohannon simply says, “The book of Revelation. Wow. The constant threat of doomsday prophets and internet soothsayers.”

He expands on those thoughts: “If these are the end times, I say bring them on and let this song usher the horses down. We were lucky to get Jimbo Mathus to lay down harmonica on this and it really is the thread holding the song together.”

The video itself was directed by Zachary Cooper and edited by Carrie Warren. “Our aim was to merge some apocalyptic imagery with the innocence of childhood,” Bohannon tells us. “The [aforementioned] book of Revelation and the four horsemen of the apocalypse are the inspiration behind the video. The score plays out while introducing the riders, or the kids in costumes reenacting the riders’ descent from the sky. Much like the album, we wanted to not be too literal about what is going on; some imagery is in there, but mostly, it’s a Halloween vibe.”

He goes on, “I remember what it was like to be scared as a child — not only my own imagination, but of the imagination of others. The scene where the kids take their costumes and burn them is kind of based on shedding fear, stripping the clothes someone else dressed you in and destroying them.”

To stay up-to-date with everything happening in Bohannons’ world — and to get details on the upcoming record — make sure to bookmark the band’s official website.

ALLMUSIC PREMIERES PRIMA DONNA’S NEW SINGLE PRETTY LITTLE HEAD”!

Song Premiere: Prima Donna – “Pretty Little Head” By Chris Steffen

With their bright, room-filling sound, Los Angeles rock band Prima Donna’s pairing with previous tour mates Green Day and Adam Ant makes a lot of sense. “Pretty Little Head” is from the band’s forthcoming album, Nine Lives and Forty Fives, which will be out in January on Alive Naturalsound Records, and combines the band’s glam-rock leanings with a wild guitar solo and a wordless hook. For further proof of their careening, don’t-give-a-damn energy, frontman Kevin Preston also plays guitar in raucous garage band and Green Day side project Foxboro Hot Tubs. Nine Lives and Forty Fives will be out on January 27. http://www.allmusic.com/blog/post/song-premiere-prima-donna-pretty-little-head

ELMORE MAGAZINE PREMIERES SAM LLANAS’ NEW TRACK “DANGEROUS LOVE”

EXCLUSIVE: Former BoDeans Rocker Sam Llanas Shares New Track Off Upcoming Album

With the November 18 release of The Whole Night Thru, former BoDeans’ guitarist/vocalist Sam Llanas will be three albums into his solo career, and he seems to be very much enjoying the creative freedom. A roots rock powerhouse, the new album speaks to the wide range of sounds that inspired Llanas as a young man, and surely still do: “In the ’60s, when radio was wide open, you would hear the Beatles and the Stones, Motown Soul and Atlanta Soul, Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding and Southern Soul. You’d hear Tom Jones, The Carpenters, Glen Campbell and country artists, you’d hear Johnny Cash and folk.”

“Dangerous Love” represents but one facet of Llanas’ varied style. “‘Dangerous Love’ is a song about seduction,” according to Llanas. “Letting yourself be lured into something that you know is probably going to get you in trouble.” Behind a steady beat that both rocks and grooves, Llanas’ vocal wail, with the help of some equally wailing guitar, is rather seductive itself. See for yourself below, and catch Llanas at New York’s Stage Left Studio on October 17 and 18 as part of the theatrical production of playwright Doug Vincent’s A Day for Grace, benefiting the Road Recovery organization for at-risk youth.
