ACDC: New Album On The Way...
Rumours have been swirling since August last year, when estranged members Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd were photographed together outside the Vancouver studio where AC/DC recorded their last three records. Nothing had been heard since then until late last month, when US band Terrorizer said they had bumped into Johnson at an airport, with the vocalist reportedly admitting to them that he was back in the lineup.
Now, on his podcast, Trunk says that while at the recent NAMM Show in Anaheim, he was told the album is done – and it features some material recorded by the late Malcolm Young. Trunk says: “I have a source that will remain nameless, but a very, very, very well-placed, reliable source regarding AC/DC. “He told me, to his knowledge, the album is done, that they went to that studio in Canada and made this record and what people speculated on – that these were riffs and ideas and is more of a tribute to Malcolm Young – is true, that Malcolm had a bunch of stuff recorded that they worked off of and incorporated into the record.
“This is a unity thing – to come together and put out some of Malcolm’s music and celebrate AC/DC." Trunk adds: “This source also told me that he doesn’t know what they’re going to do with this record, when or how it’s going to come out and, as far as he was aware – and he would know – there’s no plans for live shows. “He didn’t tell me anything about Axl or who’s on it.” The rummours regarding no live shows appears to be backed up by former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven who, according to the Appetite For Distortion podcast (via Alternative Nation) says: “I’m not sure that Brian, that his condition, is going to let him tour.
That is the rumour I’ve heard. “They can record together but he may not tour with them so Axl/DC may well be an entity into next year, who knows?” Johnson was forced to stop touring with AC/DC in 2016 under the threat of permanent deafness but has since worked with audio experts Asius on a solution to his hearing problems, with Beano taking to the stage following his departure from AC/DC with Muse, Paul Rodgers and Mick Fleetwood.

This is one hell of a band, their music will have you bangin your head, the song lyrics are pure and well written, their music style is raw and crazy cool to say the least. They sound a bit like the Black Keys, some Pink Floyd with a mix of Motorhead. This band brings it at every "LIVE" show and they can keep the room jumping and having way to much fun all night long.
We here at The GFsix Show found this band while searching for another one, needless to say we're damn glad we did, the music style is a sound that kinda makes you wonder why it's not on the radio yet, the sound is strong, pure and fun. The drums are killer along with the lead guitar, the singer has a perfect voice for this sound, the bass is strong and pumpin.
Songs like "Bettin' On Red" is way cool and trust me it's N AWESOME song! The lyrics are very sticky and thats a good thing in the music business, the lyrics kinda stick in your head in the shower, in the car and through out your workday. lol
Other great tunes like "California Song" & "Wicked Highway" sound like they should be included in some T.V shows like The Walking Dead or S.O.A they're that good. GREAT STUFF FOR SURE!
You can grab their music right HERE..

Having performed over 450 shows nationally, it’s when watching him play an intimate coffeehouse gig that he's tucked into a headlining U.S. tour that it clicks; Currin is chasing after the genuine human connection, one fan and one song at a time.
We came across Nate's Music when we were searching for a band to fill a show spot, so happy we found his music, it sounded amazing, his style and music is like listening to a person tell a great story. His music is very well written and his style is amazing. He has the understanding that with music comes a passion to have a great time.
If you're feeling down or sad, his music will pick you up, songs like "American Dream" & "Take It Home" show you a side of him as a person with a sound that is so soothing to the soul, you feel like his music is written for you. All of Nate's music is very good and well written that sounds a little like Passenger & Mumford & Sons to a bit of The Lumineers.

Catchy Enough to be on Radio Without Sacrificing Substance!
Canadian band AZTEC is a motivated band of friends formed with a “play anywhere for anyone” mentality. AZTEC’s performance is an intense emotional display fueled by time spent crammed in a van and the efforts demanded of today’s determined ‘indie band’. AZTEC is Lead vocals/guitar-Kyle Schepens, Lead guitar-Saul Sitar, Bass-Patrick Gleeson and Drums-Amber Banman.
They have just released their 5-track EP, , Mixed and produced by Nathan Hussey (All Get Out), Charleston S.C. and Mastered by Kenny McWilliams (Archer Avenue Studios), Columbia S.C.
AZTEC is a band that came out of nowhere for me. Their EP walks all sorts of lines; it’s just the perfect amount of offbeat indie, with the perfect amount of melody and good old rock n’ roll. The dynamics are also well above par; the right amount of loud gritty, raw guitars riffs mixed with beautiful six-string melodically-inclined notes, and matching vocal verses and choruses from Kyle. The little harmony touches to every song are also vitally important in giving the songs an extra touch of class.
Kyle Schepen’s vocals are delicate, fragile, and emotional at times, and then gritty, raw, and biting at others. Lyrically the band’s writing is superb. Some of the lyrics are enigmatic and cryptic. Others are 100 percent honest, and personal. Saul Sitar’s guitar work is refreshing. If you like guitar-based music, you will like this album. At the other end, Amber Banman’s drum work is subtle, and explosive, while Patrick Gleeson’s bass lines, are, exactly how they should be!
The flow of this EP is smooth. Every song flows right into each other seamlessly. These songs are at their nature, Indie, yet at the same time they are catchy enough to be on the radio without sacrificing any substance. In fact, ‘substance’ is the word that best sums up “Stitches”. And it can be found in what I consider the EP’s standout tracks, in this order: “Untitled Part One”, “The Benefits Of Being Alone” and “If I Believed In Anything”.

This Band Has A Mean Story To Tell In Music & An AMAZING SOUND.
Sometimes a band comes along and you just think this will be some hard rocking loudness, but when this band hits the stage, it's an amazing sound with a different kind of sound. A sound that is hard, soft and intense. They have a style that will shock you, their music is kind of mean and it's a truth in the story that sells their music. Songs like "PART OF YOU" Is just a well written song that has a sound all it's own, other songs like "ADDICTION" is an awesome song that will have you listening to the words.
Downsiid was formed in 2000 by drummer Rich ‘B.rich’ Burgos in Killeen,Texas. The band entered the Central Texas music scene as a 4 piece that was a lot harder sounding and rougher than the Downsiid fan’s know today. The band originally was made up mostly of U.S Army soldiers stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas. B.rich started looking to make some line-up changes.
Singer Jason ‘String’ Atwood joined the band after a chance meeting with ‘B.rich’ at a local Tattoo Shop that String owned, and the voice of Downsiid was found. In 2003 DJ Akira MC joined the band bringing Hip-Hop, turntablism, samples and a hype man into the mix. Lennis Hayes and Jeff ‘Spanish’ C. complete the band on bass and guitar respectively. Both members are veterans of the local music scene and complete the hard partyin’, harder rockin’, tear the roof off your club Texas band known as DownsiiD.
Downsiid has enjoyed independent success with their releases: ‘Karma: The Rebirth’ and ‘The Evolution of Ghetto Rock'. They have toured the country on self funded tours to include their annual indie fest ‘The Siid Show: Rock N Roll Circus‘, which is in it’s 5th year and now includes 8 Texas cities, “Girls, Grills and Guitars Tour” and “The Freedom Tour” which took them to towns neighboring military bases throughout the South.
To date DownsiiD has sold over 10,000 copies of ‘The Evolution of Ghetto Rock’ and are preparing for the release of the highly anticipated follow up, ‘Life of Lies’ featuring tracks by Andy Waldek (Daughtry, Earth to Andy), production by Roy Z (Judas Priest, Halford) and mastering by Maor Applebaum (Halford).
