Pop Evil have released a new video.  It’s for the song “Torn to Pieces,” off their latest album, Onyx.  The clip focuses on the loss singer Leigh Kakaty feels as he keeps seeing visions of his late father everywhere he turns. Leigh spoke to about the visual, saying, “Digging up the past can be very difficult.  Losing someone close to you has a healing process, and I choose to do it through this video.  It makes me happy that this song is helping people like we hoped it would.”  

Another personal favorite of the Rocket Crew is KONGOS! 4 Brothers, Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Danny Kongos. Sons of British singer-songwriter John Kongos, they grew up in London and South Africa, and are now based in Phoenix, AZ. And oh my are we glad to have them in the Southwest with us.

Rocket Reel Movie Moment

chiOne year ago today the world lost a great musician after a long stuggle following a horrific car accident. And today, the Deftone’s celebrate Chi Cheng’s life with a never before heard, unreleased track, “Smile.” Check out out.

joanNirvana performed four songs at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Thursday with Joan JettKim Gordon, St. Vincent and Lorde, but that wasn’t enough for them.  After the event, they went to a small bar in Brooklyn for an after-party and played a full set.  Joining them at Saint Vitus Bar were once again Joan, Kim, and St. Vincent, plus Deer Tick’s John McCauley and Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis.  They performed 19 songs including “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “In Bloom,” “Breed,” “All Apologies” and “Territorial Pissings,” all with Joan Jett, and “Heart-Shaped Box” with St. Vincent.  No word yet on if they are planning any more gigs but you can find some fan-filmed footage from the small gig online. The 350-capacity Saint Vitus Bar often hosts up and coming heavy metal bands. Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic told us the group made it their goal to expose their fans to lesser-known musicians.  The show ended around 4 AM.

The audience at Buckcherry’s Atlantic City gig this week were the first to hear a song live and to hear some news.  At the show, the band performed a track called “Say F**k It” and before it, singer Josh Todd told the crowd that this summer, they’re releasing an EP called F**k.  “Say F**k It” will be on the set, and all the other songs on it will also have the F-word in their titles.  The rocker had previously revealed there would be a theme to the EP.  A release date hasn’t been set yet but you can stay up to date at and check out fan-filmed footage of the performance of “Say F**k It” online.  Josh told that working on the EP was “probably one of the funnest times I’ve had writing songs.”
