FEINTS Out Yellabird In #RUMBLE35

Look at this upset! Due to illness, FEINTS will not be appearing in the wildcard slot for Night 2 of the 35th Annual Rock 'N' Roll Rumble Semifinals. Rock and roll duo, Yellabird, will step in as the new wildcard.

In a recent email, event organizer Anngelle Wood states,
"The nature of the Rock 'n' Roll Rumble is a roller coaster ride of emotion. For us all. We cannot predict any outcome or condition. I am sad to say FEINTS cannot appear tonight as planned but Yellabird will graciously step into the Wildcard spot as their score from night #6 dictates. Send much love to Amy Douglas, a true star of the highest caliber."

FEINTS reacted to the announcement via their Facebook page.
"We won't be able to come rock out tonight for the Rock 'n' Roll Rumble Semis. However, we are thrilled to have made it as far as we did, after all, we're really a baby band among a lot of giants. It's been an ABSOLUTE honor to play with you...we hope whoever takes the crown tonight slays it, you'll see us at Finals cheering on the Victors."

Yellabird originally played Night 6 of the Rumble's preliminary round, but could not surpass the guitar-heavy onslaught of Await Rescue. Doors for tonight's show are at 8:30pm, full details can be found on the official Facebook event page.

Now Hear This - You're Not A Starfish, Wear Ear Plugs

Bishop And Rook will be offering free ear plugs during Night #1 of the Rock 'N' Roll Rumble!

Fun fact: Most starfish can regenerate damaged limbs. All humans cannot regenerate damaged hearing.

Studies have shown that the decibel level of a loud rock concert registers at approximately 120dB. The maximum exposure to 120dB of sound without ear protection is a whopping 15 minutes a day before you risk damaging your ear tissue, leading to permanent hearing loss. (The average rock concert runs around 240 minutes.) That’s just a scooch below the loudest recommended exposure WITH hearing protection (at 140dB).

Visit the Rebuilder merch table during Night #1 of the Rock 'N' Roll Rumble for a free pair of ear plugs (while supplies last), complimentary of Bishop And Rook music blog.

Doom Lover Releases New Single “Under the Alders”

Download the new Doom Lover single for free now.
Because you haven’t had enough theremin today.

Tagged as “science music” (sure, why not), Boston’s Doom Lover dives a little bit deeper into the realm of oddities and peril by accentuating the “doom” with their new single “Under the Alders”.

“Delivering on promises made in their live set, [this] modern-day bluesman's tale is a dulcet murder ballad that gives way to death-defying dynamics,” states Jeffrey Vachon (guitar and vocals) in a recent press release.

You can download your free copy of “Under the Alders” over at Bandcamp now.

Doom Lover will be playing their haunted rock and roll hearts out during Night #2 of the 35th Annual Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble along with When Particles Collide, Goddamn Draculas and Emma Ate the Lion. Ticket link and additional information for this 18+ event can be found on the official Facebook event page.
