Famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma premiered a new video this week.

Ma debuted the video for his performance of Bach’s ‘Cello Suite No.1 in G Major‘ this week via Apple Music.  The performance is taken from Ma’s latest album, 2018’s Six Evolutions — BachCello Suites, which was released Sept. 14 via Sony Classical.

In accompaniment with the video’s premiere, Ma has also curated a playlist of Bach recordings that shows how Bach’s music transcends generations and cultures. Additionally, a video featuring Ma discussing “Why Bach Matters” is streaming now.

Lamb of God Debuts Video For Burn The Priest’s Cover Of ‘Jesus Built My Hotrod’

Courtesy: Epic Records

Lamb of God has released a new video for Burn The Priest’s cover of Ministry’s Jesus Built My Hotrod.’

Created by Heath Bradley, the video is streaming online now.  It features an elderly man (maybe supposed to be Jesus?) driving a souped up hot rod/rat rod looking very aggravated as he drives along a long highway.  Along the way, there are oil fields, billboards featuring the band members, scenes with the band performing.

The whole thing culminates with the unidentified driver standing next to an alien sort of figure, smiling as he delivers the song’s final lines.

Guitarist Mark Morton said ‘Jesus Built My Hotrod’ almost didn’t even make the final cut for the album, and that its creation and addition to the record happened somewhat spontaneously.

“This was a benchmark song from the early 90s.  We didn’t even originally plan on doing it – producer Josh Wilbur and I learned it real quickly and put it together,” Morton said.  “It turned out to be one of our favorite songs of the album.  It features a side of Randy that people aren’t used to hearing.  nothing was planned, so it felt fun, and we just went for it.”

This new video is the third to be released from Lamb of God’s new album under the Burn The Priest moniker.  Prior to its release, videos for the band’s covers of Accused’s ‘Inherit The Earth‘ and Bad Brains’ ‘Kerosene‘ were released.

LegionXX is available now in stores and online.  It is available at a low price of $7.99 via iTunes this week only.  It is also available in bundles at various sites here. its track listing is noted below.

Legion: XX track listing:
1. Inherit The Earth (originally performed by the Accused)
2. Honey Bucket (originally performed by Melvins)
3. Kerosene (originally performed by Big Black)
4. Kill Yourself (originally performed by S.O.D.)
5. I Against I (originally performed by Bad Brains)
6. Axis Rot (originally performed by Sliang Laos)
7. Jesus Built My Hotrod (originally performed by Ministry)
8. One Voice (originally performed by Agnostic Front)
9. Dine Alone (originally performed by Quicksand)
10. We Gotta Know (originally performed by Cro-Mags)

A special 7″ vinyl version of ‘Inherit The Earth’ with a cover of Helmet’s ‘In The Meantime’ as a b-side is also available via the band’s official online store.  That b-side was not included in the final cut of LegionXX, making it an extra special addition to that vinyl pressing.

Lamb of God is wrapping up the U.S. leg of its tour with Slayer this weekend with two last dates.  The first is tonight in Auburn, Washington and the last is Sunday in San Jose, California.

Two titans of the golf world are set to go toe-to-toe, and WarnerMedia and Turner Sports have secured worldwide media rights to the one-on-one golf greats.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will face off in a champions cup of sorts on November 23 at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The two-man tournament, dubbed “The Match” will be hosted by MGM Resorts International.

“The Match” will be broadcast exclusively via Turner’s B/R Live, Turner Sports’ new premium live sports streaming service, AT&T’s DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse and other on-demand platforms with the newly secured media rights. B/R Live can be accessed by downloading the B/R Live app via iTunes, Google Play, the Roku platform and Amazon Fire TV.

As an additional bonus, Bleacher Report’s House of Highlights will present in-depth highlights and behind-the-scenes content in connection to “The Match.”

Turner International will carry coverage of “The Match” overseas. If all of that is not enough for fans, the media rights deal will allow TNT to carry select content from “The Match” in the weeks following the landmark showdown.

To top everything off, HBO Sports’ 18-time Emmy Award-winning 24/7 will offer its own coverage leading up to “The Match.”

David Levy, President of Turner, discussed the new media rights deal in a recent interview, saying that “The Match” was a positive way to exhibit WarnerMedia’s broadcast capabilities.

“The iconic Tiger Woods and five-time Major Champion Phil Mickelson are generational talents who have transcended the game of golf and their rivalry continues to be one of the most compelling in sports,” Levy said.  “This one-of-a-kind, winner-take-all matchup provides a great opportunity to show fans the benefits of AT&T and WarnerMedia coming together.  For the first time since AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner (now WarnerMedia), Turner, DIRECTV and HBO will present a multi-faceted presentation of the live event and accompanying content across a vast array of platforms.”

Turner Sports will produce all of the event’s live coverage while also serving as its exclusive sales and sponsorship partner.  Turner Sports and its Turner Ignite Sports will work together with their marketing partners to highlight their brands.

The Mylars Debuts ‘Breathe Again’ Video

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Independent rock band The Mylars unveiled the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Breathe Again’ via Pure Grain Audio.  The catchy, guitar-driven song is included in the band’s most recent album, 2017’s Melody Records.  It is a work that will appeal both musically and lyrically to fans of Lifehouse, Goo Goo Dolls, Vertical Horizon, Sister Hazel and other similar acts.

Front man Danny Roselle explained the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview, saying that the song focuses on taking chances and understanding everything that goes into taking those chances.

“‘Breathe Again’ is a song about going up against the odds time and time again and the sacrifices that are constantly being made to follow your dream,” Roselle said.  “It’s a song about the reality of going after that dream and how it can really affect everyone else around you.  It’s about believing in “that moment” and it’s about realizing how spcial that moment is.  The moment those lights go down and it’s just the five of you making it happen.  It’s that moment that keeps me, Quig, Chris, Nashville and Nick all constantly going forward.”

‘Breathe Again’ follows the release of the album’s lead single and video ‘Forever Done,’ last August and its follow-up, the video for the band’s cover of The Cars’ hit song ‘Let’s Go.’  Both songs are included in Melody Records, The Mylars’ debut album.  The band also released a video for its cover of The Tories’ ‘Wonderful Life‘ this past December as a special Christmas gift to audiences.

Melody Records is available now.  It can be downloaded and ordered online now via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.  More information on The Mylars’ new video is available online now along with all of the band’s latest news and more at:

Sir Reg Debuts ‘The Underdog”s Lead Single

Courtesy: Head First Entertainment/Despotz Records

Swedish punk outfit Sir Reg will release its fifth full-length studio recording this fall, and in anticipation of its release, the band is giving audiences their first preview of the album.

The band debuted the song ‘FOOL (Fight Of Our Lives)‘ on Friday.  The song is the lead single from the band’s next album The Underdogs.  Front man Brendan Sheehy, who is in fact Irish (yes, this is a band from Sweden with an Irish front man), said the album’s lead single centers on the power of hope.

“‘FOOL (Fight of our Lives)‘…is about pulling yourself back from the bring the minute you feel all hope is lost,” Sheehy said.  “Nothing and nobody can stand in your way when you decide to go grab your hopes and dreams, and achieve everything you believe is rightfully yours.”

FOOL (Fight of our Lives)‘ can be downloaded via iTunes and streamed via Spotify.

In regards to The Underdogs, the band explained in a collective statement that it is a tribute of sorts to the everyday person, that proverbial underdog who works every day to survive while also making some kind of difference.

“Everyone loves an Underdog,” the band said in its statement.  “They represent the belief that anyone can achieve and accomplish whatever they believe in, despite overwhelming odds.  This album deals with the struggles of the ordinary men and women, to make their voice heard and their opinions count, whilst not losing their spirit and ability to enjoy the simpler things in life, like hanging out with friends at their favorite bar on a Saturday night.”
