Post-hardcore veterans EMERY have just released We Do What We Want, their fifth studio album, via Tooth & Nail Records/Solid State.

Their first new material since 2009’s …In Shallow Seas We Sail, Emery is back in fine form with what many are calling the band’s heaviest album to date. Produced by guitarist Matt Carter and mixed by Jason Suecof (Whitechapel, August Burns Red, All That Remains) We Do What We Want further cements Emery as a mainstay in the heavy music genre, proof that quality and longevity go hand-in-hand.

In its review of We Do What We Want, Alternative Press notes, “The first thing you really notice on We Do What We Want, is how heavy it is. Like, ridiculously heavy. Between the ubiquitous A Day To Remember-styled chugga-chugga breakdowns and frantically shrill screams, it’s the hardest performance the band have served up in a long time, if not ever. There’s also an appealing balance to the record, since not every track continues the aural beatdown; there are quieter moments, and they’re generally pretty fabulous…essential listening for fans.” DailyDischord raves, “Catchy hooks. Big choruses. Great harmonic vocals…It’s great to see a band grow without compromising the sound we all know and love.” UnderTheGunReview calls the new album, “a beautiful, emotional and aggressive piece of art. (9 out of 10).” Sputnikmusic describes it as, “one of the most hard-hitting, honest and all around solid releases to date for Emery,” while MindEqualsBlown says, “(the) songs smash through your speakers in an inspired way…Emery do what they want, and they refuse to fade.”

The deluxe edition of We Do What We Want (featuring two bonus tracks) is available on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/we-do-what-we-want-deluxe/id424466783) and AmazonMP3 (http://www.amazon.com/What-Want-Deluxe-Digital-Booklet/dp/B004RDCI4W).
We Do What We Want is currently streaming in its entirety on AOL Music. Listen in here: http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/#/6.

A music video for the album opener, “The Cheval Glass” will premiere in the coming weeks.

Emery’s U.S. headline tour is now underway, featuring support from To Speak of Wolves and Hawkboy (formerly As Cities Burn). The band will then head to Australia in late April.

The quirky LA foursome A Million Pieces has released their music video for “Laserbeams,” the infectious first single from their self-titled debut EP, available for purchase April 26th.

A Million Pieces formed when all four members moved to Southern California, seeking fellow musicians with similar attitude and sound. Singer Morgan Freed and guitarist Peter Vanderloos began writing and recording songs while living in a communal house in Laguna Beach. Morgan recalled when he met Peter that, “It was the first time I saw a guitarist play his instrument upside down, and without a pick!” The two then connected with former punk bassist Ryan Brown and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Soss, who plays everything from keyboards to drums, trumpet and banjo. “I never thought from playing in metal and ska bands in Denver that I’d be in LA, playing with three dudes who I absolutely love.”

Describing what they do as “edgy pop music with attitude,” the band still has a lightness and illumination to their music and lives. “We’re not dark and mysterious, we’re honest,” says Peter. “We like to laugh and have fun.” For more A Million Pieces and to preview additional tracks from their upcoming EP, find the band on Facebook at AMPMusicLA or visit AMillionPiecesMusic.com.

Billy Joel has just released the live concert album/film Live at Shea Stadium, which is available for purchase at www.billyjoel.com.

The full-concert companion to the acclaimed Lionsgate documentary “The Last Play At Shea,” Billy Joel Live At Shea Stadium features more than two hours of Billy and his band offering definitive, and often transcendent versions of hits, rarities, deep catalog, personal favorites and crowd-pleasing surprises including duets with guest artists Paul McCartney (“I Saw Her Standing There,” “Let It Be”), Tony Bennett (“New York State of Mind”), Garth Brooks (“Shameless”) and John Mayer (“This Is The Time”) along with exclusive DVD/Blu-ray bonus performances with Steven Tyler (“Walk This Way”), Roger Daltrey (“My Generation”) and John Mellencamp (“Pink Houses”).

Chosen as the last rock act to play the venue, Billy Joel staged his “Last Play At Shea” concerts on July 16 and July 18, 2008, rocking a combined audience of 110,000 fans with one of the most emotionally charged shows ever played at the historic stadium. After 45 years, two New York Mets World Series victories, the arena debut of The Beatles and Billy Joel’s “The Last Play At Shea,” the final section of Shea Stadium was torn down in 2009.

We want YOU to have this live album for FREE but we’re sick and tired of running boring email contests so you guys are going to have a little fun. I want you to call me and do your best BJ (that’s Billy Joel you sick freaks) impression on my voicemail. Starting now you can call (917) 740 4260 and serenade us with up to two minutes of a Billy Joel song. Live it up, you’re singing to a machine! Make sure you tell us which song you will be singing and the best number to reach you at before you start though! Good luck!
