About The Song
“Eight Billion Heartbeats is a song that urges understanding for journeys different than our own. There are no two journeys exactly alike. There are eight billion journeys, and only one planet. How can we possibly make that work? One heartbeat is something we all share, so we start there. One world, one connection inside. Eight Billion Heartbeats.”

UK Progressive Art Rock Band KYROS Announce the Departure of Bassist Peter Episcopo

Hello everyone,
The time has sadly come to announce the departure of our bassist, Peter Episcopo. This was by no means sudden to the rest of the band as we’ve been aware of this decision for a while. Our recent shows were our last with Peter and the feeling was incredibly bittersweet and we feel privileged and grateful that more people than ever came out to see us and share the send off with us. We will all continue to be close friends with Peter and look forward to many more happy memories
ahead outside of Kyros. Let’s all wish Peter the best of luck for his future endeavors!
A few words from the man himself:

“Hi all,
My last note with Kyros was a D#, at the end of Cloudburst at the Lower Third in London. I never wanted it to end on that note, but hey.. After almost 10 years, it feels surreal to be announcing my departure from Kyros. The band has been a big part of my life ever since Shelby graced me with bass duties back in 2014. Playing with Robin, Joey and Shelby has been an absolute honour, a treasure that I will always hold dear. They’re insanely gifted musicians and keeping up with their skill level has been one heck of a challenge. I remember walking into our third ever rehearsal with a shirt saying ‘Sorry girls, I’m gay… The bond grew strong. Fellow musicians quickly became friends. Friends became family. Jesus, so dramatic… All I’m trying to say is that I’m very fond of them. My eyes got watery when I last hugged them at the end of our last show together. I wish them all the best and will always be a fan of their music. I’m massively looking forward to the new material and
I’m very proud of what we have achieved and to have been a part of this adventure.

I would like to take this opportunity to also thank you all for the continuous support over the years. I’ve met many lovely people and have played alongside many incredible bands on this journey.
I don’t know where, I don’t know when, but I know we’ll meet again. All the best,

And with our next shows a mere four months away – we must press on ahead and the search begins for a new bassist for Kyros Time is of the essence but we are determined to find someone who fits our ethos, drive, determination and tenacity. We are ideally looking for a bassist who is based in the south/midlands of England, has a good ear for learning parts aurally, is capable of basic keyboard playing and backing vocals.

If you think you fit the bill, we’d love to hear from you ASAP.

To get started – send us some footage of you playing, plus some brief words about yourself to [email protected]

We’ve been Kyros. You’ve been amazing. Here’s to the future.
Shelby, Joey & Robin

Melodic Revolution Records Signs Popular British Artist Captain of the Lost Waves 

We are thrilled to announce the signing of British Progressive Art-rock / Alternative Folk Pop Singer/songwriter and Multi-instrumentalist Captain of the Lost Waves to the Revolution family. To date Captain of the Lost Waves has released 4 studio albums and dozens of videos and a new album is planned for sometime in 2023. In the meantime Captain of the Lost Waves is planning to launch a new video for Animals on an Island Next week from his latest release Hidden Gems Chapter 3 / Mysterium Tremendum.

In a statement about the signing to Melodic Revolution Records Captain of the Lost Waves had this to say. 

It’s been a somewhat strange and rather unconventional journey for me as an artist, becoming involved with a bespoke label that shares a kindred connection to many of the things that are dear to me feels like the most natural thing to do. Music is a sacred exchange of alchemy between the artist and their audience, hence I trust this collaboration with Nick Katona at MRR will bring my offerings to many brand-new unsuspecting ears and hearts!

Captain of the Lost Waves Bio

The Captain is a troubadour, storyteller and free thinking renegade. His musical offerings are inspired by the great songwriters and philosophers of yesteryear. This is visceral music for the mind and body, full of dreamy verses, life affirming choruses and sheer audacity. Where melodic invention meets alternative folk, progressive, world and ambient sounds.

He is not just the figurehead of his musical vessel, he’s ringmaster, bard, master of ceremonies and sage. There’s far more to him and his absurdly engaging world than any of your ten – a – penny musical stars. Seen through showers of glitter, kaleidoscopic lens flares and in the rainbows of a million puddles. The Captain tells sonic stories to connect with everyone past, present and future.   

Expect improvisation and intuitive performance featuring Bouzouki, Ukulele, Mandolin, Guitar and sparing use of loop pedal. Often A Captain show has been described as ‘like trying to describe the colour number 9, impossible, it has to be experienced to be believed’.

Previously signed to Voiceprint under his natural guise Shaun T Hunter and Quiet Rebellion. He released three critically acclaimed albums, two of which were Borders Book Store’s album of the month. Off the back of this he carried out a residency at the famous 12 Bar Club, London. He was also voted Acoustic Roots performer of the year at the Leeds Independent Music Awards in 2005.

Voted outstanding songwriter of the year from the Yorkshire Gig Guide Awards 2017.

Making music is a communion to the Captain and much of his work has taken place in a music therapy guise. Playing in secure units, prisons, mental health units and hospitals. The connection is always about the most authentic exchanges between an artist and his audience, based on a shared humanity.

The Captain was chosen by English Folk Expo as just one of 12 English artists to represent team England in the inaugural Global Music Match 2020, an exercise where 96 artists from 14 countries were featured world wide.

Media has been quoted as saying…

The Captain was born to be an entertainer, perhaps even a prophet…watching his show is a life altering experience, there are no words in the English language to describe him’. 

The Huffington Post

‘Sometimes something comes along that is so completely extraordinary that you just go yep, the Captain is a superstar, truly cinemascopic and epic’ 
– Tom Robinson BBC6 Music

“Like imagining Charlie Chaplin with the voices of Freddie mercury and Klaus Nomi, singing songs written by a post modern Irving Berlin” 
– Glastonbury Arts Festival

‘This artist is a one off, but maybe consider as a prototype for his idiosyncrasy, Zappa, Beefheart or the sensational Alex Harvey Band *****

The Tangent launch ‘A Crisis In Mid Life’from their forthcoming live collection‘Pyramids, Stars And Other Stories’​

The Tangent recently announced the release of ‘Pyramids, Stars & Other Stories: The Tangent Live Recordings 2004-2017’ on January 27th, 2023 via InsideOutMusic. Collecting together tracks from 3 line-ups of The Tangent, this 2CD & 3LP album collects together show recordings from 2004, 2011 & 2017. Band leader Andy Tillison comments: “A Triple Live LP is the stuff of Bucket Lists, dreamed of doing one of these since I was a kid”.

Listen to the band performing ‘A Crisis In Mid Life’ live in the UK in 2012, featuring the line-up of Andy Tillison, Luke Machin, Dan Mash & Tony ‘Funkytoe’ Latham, here: 

The album will be available as a 2CD Digipak, a Gatefold 3LP+2CD & LP-booklet, as well as digitally worldwide. Pre-order now here:

Included in its entirety is the 2004 ‘Pyramids And Stars’ concert in Germany featuring the “Roine Stolt” lineup of The Tangent playing its way through the majority of the debut ‘Music That Died Alone’ album along with (then) new material from their second album ‘The World That We Drive Through’.

Added to that, there are tracks from the COMM era line-up of the band at a concert in the UK – plus music recorded in the USA in 2017 by the band’s current line-up. These originally appeared on the ‘Southend On Sea’ and ‘Hotel Cantaffordit’ fan releases respectively.

All is presented inside a re-imagined Ed Unitsky sleeve, to create a package that fans are sure to love.
“This is a real, proper, live album” says Tillison. “It’s candid, it’s spontaneous, it has mistakes and things that are a bit too loud and things that are a bit too quiet. It’s what happened on stage at three gigs at which “making a live album” never crossed our minds.”

IMMINENT SONIC DESTRUCTION Release Lyric Video For Title Track “The Sun Will Always Set”

Detroit-based ‘Progressive Super Metal’ quintet IMMINENT SONIC DESTRUCTION have

unveiled a new lyric video for the title track to their new album, ‘The Sun Will Always Set’. Fans can watch the video (created by Ross Morgan) at the link found here.

The band’s third studio album was released on April 15th and features multiple guest appearances, including Battlecross guitarist Tony Asta and touring cellist for Leprous, Raphael Weinroth-Browne.

Speaking about the track “The Sun Will Always Set”Tony Piccoli (vocals/guitar) comments:

“This is the best song I’ve ever written. When I write music, I have a vision of what I want the song to be, and with this song I not only met my expectations, I exceeded them. Lyrically, this song is meant to provide comfort in endings. We always find comfort in the next day’s sunrise, and I want people to know they can find comfort in the consistency of the day’s sunset, and that it’ll be OK.”

About IMMINENT SONIC DESTRUCTION:Originally formed in 2007 as “mellotrön_”, Imminent Sonic Destruction features the same lineup today that they started with: Pat DeLeon on Drums, Pete Hopersberger on Keyboards & Vocals, Bryan Paxton on Bass & Vocals, Tony Piccoli on Guitar & Vocals, and Scott Thompson on Guitar & Vocals. Imminent Sonic Destruction’s influences range from Genesis, Devin Townsend, Rush, and King’s X, to Pantera, Dream Theater, and Meshuggah.

In 2012 I.S.D. paired up with producer/guitarist ROY Z (Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, Tribe of Gypsies) and recorded their first full-length album ‘Recurring Themes’. The album led the band to their first national tour, pairing up with Sweden’s PAIN OF SALVATIONand Italy’s KINGCROW. In 2015 they were offered the opportunity to tour with progressive metal legends FATES WARNING, which they acted on, gaining lifelong hardcore fans along the way. In 2016 Imminent Sonic Destruction released their second album ‘Triumphia’, a concept record featuring songs like “The Fog”, and the 23-minute epic “Arborous Calm.” The album of course turned the prog metal world on its head, which led to a tour with Norway’s CIRCUS MAXIMUS, and a co-headlining run with NYC’s EDENSONG.

A number of years and one pandemic later, I.S.D. are poised to release their third full-length album, ‘The Sun Will Always Set’. The new album was produced by Nick Hagen, guitarist of Michigan-based progressive metal band ENTRANSIENT. With Nick at the helm, I.S.D. was able to fully actualize the album the new LP in the way they intended. TSWAS features the heavy riffs, non-standard arrangements, and vocals you’ve come to expect from I.S.D., but in fresh new contexts. The new record features guest appearances from guitarist Tony Asta of BATTLECROSS, cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne of LEPROUS, vocalist Lady Luna from LADY LUNA AND THE DEVIL, and vocalist Kevin Wroebel of DRAGGED BENEATH.
