Indie, folk, rock solo artist Dan Rose have released an all new song made video titled "You Don't Always Need A Plan". In said video, it is time to clean up the after party!

Dan Rose's style is rather clever and catchy, the way the song progresses at the start, makes it fun and entertaining as well. Like for instance, the pattern that the instrumentation plays out, makes it easy listening, while the vocals are strung along to it, bringing the track together full circle, that it never gets boring. In term's the video's concept of seeing Dan Rose picking up after a wild and crazy party is as well entertaining, as he does a good job showing his cleaning skills, while also goofing off too. It's funny, creative, and again entertaining, cannot express that enough really. If you want some laid back tunes, then by all means be sure to check out Dan Rose's works, especially this new track and it's accompanying video!

With that said, the lyrics of the song can be found below with link to the video below!

Lyrics: Dan Rose's - "You Don't Always Need A Plan"

he dreams you keep to yourself will never go anywhere
Don't leave them on the shelf, give them air
Waiting, wasting time with nothing on the line
Waiting, wasting time - Have another glass of wine
You don't always need a plan
Sometimes you just need to breathe
Trust, let go and see what happens

"'You Don't Always Need a Plan’ could/should be a new anthem for all the
good people who are stressed
by a more and more result orientated world where the goal often justifies
the means"

"Fine tendencies in these Elliott Smith-inspirered minor chord melodies"
Fyens Stiftstidende (print newspaper)
“The borderland between classic folk centered around a good voice and an
acoustic guitar - and a punk rock edge"

Monsterpalooza began as a trail run in New Jersey back in 2008, by 2009 it was then transferred and organized from the East Coast to the West Coast by Eilot Brodsky in 2009 in California. Sometime later it would go from the valley of Burbank, California down to Pasadena, California's convention as opposed to Burbank's convention, which would only hold off it's spin off smaller convention the "Son Of Monsterpalooza" held during the fall, while Monsterpalooza is always in the spring time.


With that said, for the past decade the convention along with the spin off, have both done well for themselves, as the convention specializes in the horror, creatures and make up work done by those within the industry, ranging from TV, film, etc.  This eleventh year run, would showcase such headliners as Bruce Campbell and Linda Blair, as well as other actors, along with effects artists, vendors, panel discussions, with other interesting set-ups all decked out in the spookiness of horror!


As fans aligned outside the Pasadena Convention Center, on Sunday April 14th 2019, dawning it’s 11AM open time, all if not most were draped in black t-shirts, if not a costumed attire, of their favorite character. Once the doors were open, the long line would descend into the hall’s, after scanning in their tickets, draping a wristband, and exploring about. The sight’s and sounds, were all but glee, from cheer’s, shout’s, and screams of frightfulness, after running into familiar friends, family, and meeting their favorite guests who were in attendance.


Within the two vendor and artist hall’s were rows of merchandise tables, sellers showcasing their talents of make up art, posters, t-shirts, jewelry, handbags and bags of all shapes and sizes. Artistic sides of the merchandise, had individuals showing off their artistic talents with prints of horror icons both old and new, among other characters from film, animation, games, and the like. Roaming around throughout were tables with guests signing autographs, some taking photographs, and all else just being pleased to be in the presents of said personal.


Whilst all the long lines were dreadful at times, it was well worth it for many, as some had the chance of meeting shall we say legends, like Bruce Campbell and Linda Blair for instance. Other guests were voice actors, if not other actors known for roles in other features, who got attention as well. Throughout it though, was lots there who were having such a fun time, that it coming to an end, on this three day run, was a downer for many. But perhaps this three day convention could expand further on than just the trio of days. But if that does not occur, then there is always the spin off that is “Son Of Monsterpalooza” come the fall time.


Russian hard rockers Polygon not only take hard rock as a genre but melodic as well. Take their most recent release for instance "The Winners in This Life", it's 10-tracks of solid hard hitting momentum. Like "Synthetic World", is simply energetic and hard hitting, the instruments are fun and really entertaining, as they blend well with the vocals providing this flow that never stops. Just like other tracks do this sort of thing, with such as "Forever and a Day", "Shadow in My Heart", "Take My Hand", and "Pure Love". These song selections being catchy, rather upbeat, and filled with that energy as mentioned prior. You are just truly thrown with entertainment through and through when listening in on “The Winners in This Life”, release. The band’s style brings to mind other such bands like The 69 Eyes and some elements of In Flame’s newer working’s. In short, this album has got feeling, lots of emotion, and constant energy that cannot be contained! Thus with all of this being said, Polygon’s latest release, is one that will keep you interested from the very start to the last note of the finish for this extensive track listing that never seems to quit but remains continuous!


MNEMOCIDE's latest and newest addition is their EP "Debris", a 4-track piece of effort that really sticks you where it wants to. In other words, the death metal delivered by MNEMOCIDE is rather gripping and soul crushing to say the least. The style of death metal brings to mind that of Incite crossed with some after affects of Napalm Death with a dash of Death Angel. You just get this mix mash of this and that pretty much. That is how the delivery presents itself at times throughout this 4-track EP release here. Take for instance such tracks like "Collapse" and "Only Shades", these are what create this EP as to what it is as a whole. A full wholesome circle if you will. As it goes though, MNEMOCIDE’s EP here that is “Debris”, has got a big impact for what it is. You get a douse of metal, that has intensity, quality, and loads of embrace that packs it in strong and hard. Surely not a disappointment in any regards.


Having just formed just last year in 2018, the guys in Obscura Qalma went straight ahead with writing and recording for what would be their debut EP "From The Sheol To The Apeiron" out now everywhere! As a matter of fact, the EP was mixed and mastered by Fabrizio Gesuato at Inverno Studios. Along with the cover artwork being done by Nestor Avalos of the Black Arts website, with the band's logo designed by Malcon Ristow and Marcelo Vasco Arts at PS2R Design. Thus with that said and all that, the EP opens up with the track "Misanthropic Perception", a track with such intensity it delivers a truly powerful punch. Through it's entirety the track builds up leading right into the next track "Apokalepse", which is just like it's opener really intensifying indeed. The vocalization provided are what draw you inward to what this band and it's EP here have to offer you as the listener. The quality of the vocal chords just bang the material every which way possible. Same has to go for the other remaining tracks off this EP release, "Roots Of Evil", and "Haze Of Reason", both of which, are much like the other tracks. Same type of momentum of energy, force, and intensity that shows no boundaries whatsoever. All in all really, Obscura Qalma’s EP “From The Sheol To The Apeiron” has got quite the delivery within it’s contents. Surely any metal fan will be pleased by their  symphonic death metal sound.


Rock n' rollers AVALANCHE have only got two singles under their belts "Head First in Hell" and "Balls Deep", with a follow-up EP expected soon enough. The EP titled "Sent From Hell", it showcases a variety of tracks and will be out and about soon enough as said prior. The band got together to talk about this EP and all else there is to know about this up and coming band!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Veronica: My names Veronica, but everyone calls me V, I play guitar for Avalanche.

Ryan: I'm the drummer.

Steven: I'm lead singer and bass player. Avalanche originally formed when Ryan and Veronica started jamming together a couple years ago, I think they met through his sister who Veronica went to school with. They went through a quite a few different bass players, rhythm guitarists and singers before they met me through a musicians forum. I'd just moved down from QLD where my last band had broken up, and after a few months of living in Sydney Veronica reached out to me and asked if i'd be interested in auditioning for her band which didn't even have a name yet.

Veronica: He showed up to the wrong address. But what impressed me is that he actually took the bus and the train for 2 hours to still make it to jam with us rather then just going home. He became our lead singer and when our bass player stopped showing up, he became our bass player too.

Ryan: From that point on we started writing original material and ended up hitting the local scene in Sydney. Now were planning our debut double EP release for May 1st of this year.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Steve's Dad, Adrian Campbell was in a band called Avalanche in the 70s and the 80s, they used to belong to the same management company as AC/DC, they have even played with them and some other major bands at that time, we thought it was an awesome sounding name and wanted to keep the rock and roll family tradition going.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We’re based in Western Sydney which is good at the moment we play a lot of the local pubs and venues. There’s so many good bands in Sydney, but some times it's hard to get people to come out to see somebody that isn't a DJ. Even with all the government lock out laws and noise restrictions, it’s still a really vibrant scene down here if you know where to look, which is why more people should go see live gigs with live bands and support the local scene, who knows what these people will end up doing.

4. How would you describe your style?

It’s a raw punchy Hard Rock, with inspiration from 70’s-80’s style hard rock. The Australian rock scene specifically was a big inspiration as well, with bands like AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, the Angels, Stevie weight, which is tied together with our own taste and style.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far we’ve released two singles, ‘Head First in Hell’ and ‘Balls Deep’, which came out pretty quick and caused quite a buzz with the local scene. They showcase some of the best of our skills in a lot of ways, a really energetic performance that sounds BIG.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yeah so we just recently finished off the recording and a lot of the work for our upcoming double EP called ‘Sent From Hell’, it showcases 4 studio recordings and 4 live recordings, a multi-track taken from a performance at the Bull and Bush Hotel and then mixed and mastered, which will be released digitally May 1st.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Over the next few months we’ll be playing around 5 shows all over Sydney in promotion for the upcoming EP, and we're still booking more shows. We’ll be playing around about two weeks apart starting from April 27th at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, May 9th at the Bull and Bush Hotel in Baulkham Hills, May 19th at Valve Bar, June 9th at Chatswood Club, June 19th at Kelly’s on King which we’ll be selling physical copies of the EP at as well.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Our long term goal at the moment is to get into a festival and play a big date, we came to that decision around when we first started and we’ve just kept moving toward that goal. We have been recently added to a competition for Woop Woop Festival in Queeensland where we need people to vote us into the lineup here: https://www.woopfest.com.au/music-search/avalanche/. Voting closes April 26th. Thanks for the help!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Any major streaming service will most likely have our music Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Soundcloud, and our Bandcamp: https://avalanche2018.bandcamp.com/. We have quite a few live performances and a music video on Facebook as well.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Steven: Hopefully they’ll listen to our songs and feel the same way we felt when we wrote them, which could be good in a lot of ways, and bad in some, but they definitely will feel and remember something when they listen to our music.

Veronica: I think Slash or someone said, a good rock song has either gotta make you want to fight or fuck. So yeah, that.

Ryan: I hope our listeners feel like that they want to break shit when they listen to our songs and each time thereafter, but of course I'd say that because I'm the drummer.


HOOBY AND THE YABBIT combines rock, blues, acoustic, as well as some roots, to keep it together, to bring forth his own project of this solo act. The solo thing first then a band later on, according to this guy, so he says, as he goes into talks of his latest EP, and hopefully some gigs too!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

It’s a solo project really though I have gigged it locally with some friends of mine. The EP "Out of Time" is a studio creation written and performed by me with some help from friends here or there.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Weeeeelll, Hooby is a small rather strange little creature who cant always be found, he is yellow and about 6 inches tall. The Yabbit is one of my daughters friends , he wears a pink dress and could do with a wash!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I am based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, the town has a few venues and some good original and cover bands. There are some annual festivals , notably Clarence Park, which I used to help run, and the Long Division festival. Both well worth a visit.

4. How would you describe your style?

It’s been described to me as "British R and B" with a "Southern Boogie rock’n’roll" vibe.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

"Out of Time", is my first release , you can expect guitars, solid Saturday Rhythms, a bit of politics and a bit of naughty craziness.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

I certainly do. I hope for an acoustic release and a full album by the end of this year.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Would love to, but nothing confirmed yet. I may be out as a solo thing first, a band later.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Aside from taking over the world Pinky, just keep recording, get gigging, and keep going. Would love to do some festivals as well.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Follow this bandcamp link here: https://hoobyandtheyabbit.bandcamp.com/releases also some covers on soundcloud.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Good question....hmmm good answer needed I suppose...the vibe I think, yeah. Cheers!


Unique is quite the word to describe rock music. Thus, with an act such as INTO THE UNKNOWN, who's array of content is slowly expanding little by little, they have come a ways in just a bit amount of time. In fact, the band goes into chatter about themselves and their music.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band really started as a recording project really, and evolved from that, there was no grand plan for a band at all.  Rupert was producing a song for pop singer, and needed a guitarist for a session, so Ryan was recommended, and the two hit it off.  Rupert had always fancied doing a rocked up cover of Chris DeBurgh’s "Don’t Pay the Ferryman" and suggested it to Ryan who immediately said yes.  When it came to a singer, Ryan suggested Lucie who, at the time, was singing in another band with Ryan.  It all came together well, so they decided to record another song, "Wrecking Ball" then they wrote a song together, and the chemistry was there.  It soon became apparent that they had nearly half an album done, so the band was finally born.  Rupert is a producer, and front of house sound man, known for working with bands such as Vixen, Sham 69, Thunderclap Newman, and White Lion, Ryan is a music school graduate, a fan of bands such as ACDC and Guns N Roses, and Lucie once won a TV talent show in her native Czech Republic!  We are also just about to announce some new additions to the lineup!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Into The Unknown came about because basically, as there hadn’t been a plan to start a band, all the songs are quite diverse, everything we did had no plan, no end game, we were literally going forward into the unknown.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based in Buckinghamshire, UK, and the music scene now is not as vibrant as it was a while ago.  A few years back, some of the music venues in the area were quite iconic (The Nags Head in High Wycombe, in either form, the Attic or the Blues Loft, hosted some amazing bands and was one of the leading circuit venues, and of course Friars in Aylesbury hosted everyone who was anyone!)  Now its mostly open mic nights etc in pubs, which can also be great.  Obviously, recommending a local band, we would say “Into the Unknown”!

4. How would you describe your style?

Musically, we all have different influences, Ryan is a huge Classic Rock fan, Lucie is a Pop and Musicals fan (Adele, Lady Gaga) and Rupert is a fan of symphonic rock.  The band ends up with, what we have been told, a unique rock sound … hard edged guitars, symphonic keys and melodic vocals.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far we have released the album “Out of the Shadows” in 2017, and a mini album of covers “The Other Side of the Wall” at the end of 2018.  What you can expect is something different on each song.  The covers for example are not the sort of songs you would immediately expect a rock band to perform, such as “I Wanna Be Like You” from the Jungle Book!  What you can expect from all of it though, is a song that hopefully showcases the passion that went into writing and recording them.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We have just finished recording our second full album, entitled Breaking the Silence, which will be released later this year, and have already started planning the third (which will be an interesting evolution as with the new members of the band, we are introducing new dynamics, new influences and new songwriters!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

As we mentioned, we re about to announce new members of the band very soon, which is very exciting as it means that we will finally be able to go out live.  We have done some limited acoustic shows, but we all feel that our music needs to be showcased with a full band, and fully rocked up!  We will be announcing shows on the website and Facebook as soon as we know them ourselves.  There are a lot of plans going on at the moment, to tie in live shows with the new album release.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

More recording, and live shows!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

The CD is available on Amazon, and digitally you can stream or download the songs from all legit sites, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes etc.  We are lucky enough to be distributed by major distributors (Universal and Sony) so you should have no issues finding it.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We get different reactions to different songs all the time, we’ve had people in tears at some of them, and some sing along.  We just hope that people relate to the songs, and however they react, if they do just remember them, then that’s a bonus for us!
