    Fly America Presents: Major with A Major 2015 Tour, starring Mark Battles with Derek Luh As a young, up-and-coming artist born and raised in Indianapolis, self-proclaimed hip hop artist Mark Battles’ success is driven by his desire to properly represent his hometown with the production of effective music that listeners will not only appreciate, but also remember. With influences such as Eminem, Tupac, Jay-Z, Big Pun, DMX, LL Cool J, and Drake, Mark describes his own style as not only “modernized” hip hop, but also “the essence of real hip hop”. Officially launching his career in 2005, Mark Battles has chosen the route of establishing a new name and face that the hip hop industry will acknowledge. With the pressure of giving Indianapolis a good name, his plan for success in this regime is to expand his brand Fly America and “take it as far as possible.” With this in mind, Mark’s plan to take over the internet consists of media outreach through [hip hop] blog sites, social networking, and by utilizing YouTube. After this is accomplished, he would like to transfer his talents over to the radio and continue to promote the success of his brand. Although he is still trying to make a name for himself, Mark is interested in working with inspirational artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and Lil’ Wayne. As a firm believer in conducting thorough research, pursuit and productivity are just as important to Mark and his success, “It’s hard work…so continue to work hard.”

    Jake E. Lee (of Ozzy Osbourne)'s Red Dragon Cartel w/ Ethan Brosh Band & Hair Nation For nearly twenty years, everybody in rock ‘n’ roll wondered where Jake E. Lee was. That’s mainly because his impact never dwindled. Every time “Bark at the Moon” came up in discussion, the question undoubtedly popped up as well. However, like an animal waiting for the perfect moment to pounce, Jake never stopped writing music. The right time happened in late 2011, when the shredder kept serendipitously crossing paths with longtime friend, notable session musician, and Beggars & Thieves guitarist/bassist Ronnie Mancuso. Lee would eat at Mancuso’s Las Vegas restaurant occasionally, and one day, Mancuso posed a different question. “I asked Jake to appear in a music video Beggars & Thieves as doing called ‘We Come Undone’,” he remembers. “I was shocked he agreed. When it premiered, there was this outpouring of love for him. Everybody wanted new music. That’s when the idea of playing together was born.” Mancuso also shares Hideout studios with producer Kevin Churko [Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne,Papa Roach, In This Moment], and the proverbial wheels began turning. Mancuso proposed that the two start a “project” produced by them and executive produced by Churko. Luckily, Lee had hundreds of riffs and ideas to build upon. The duo immediately went to work constructing the framework of the album. “I didn’t miss the music business, but I never stopped writing,” affirms Jake. “When Ron and I started writing, the songs were turning out pretty cool. It wasn’t just a throwback thing. It was about starting fresh.” Around the same time, Mancuso created a Facebook page titled “Jake E. Lee Needs a Lead Singer and Drummer”. After one post, they received thousands of entries. Two Canadian musicians, singer D.J. Smith and drummer Jonas Fairley, instantly stood out. “They’re very unique,” says Mancuso. “Both of them added their stamp to the record. As we kept going, it became more and more clear it was turning into a band.” They chose the name Red Dragon Cartel as a nod to Lee’s Japanese heritage and the “gang” mentality of a unit who would die for each other. These four musicians also cultivated a focused, fresh, and fiery hard rock sound that embraced the lead guitarist’s classic style, while emitting a new kind of spark on their self-titled debut for Frontiers Records. “It’s not like we stopped listening to music for the past two decades,” chuckles Mancuso. “Those modern influences certainly pop up. At the same time, there are some inimitable elements to Jake’s playing. You know it’s him. Kevin and his son Kane were very meticulous in helping us harness that. It’s modern without trying to be modern.” “It’s not like anything I’ve done, but it’s not that far removed either,” adds Jake. “It’s Red Dragon Cartel.” The first single “Feeder” tears through the 21st century with a flurry of guitar fireworks, Tom Peterson’s 12-string bass, pummeling percussion from Five Finger Death Punch skinsman Jeremy Spencer, and vocals courtesy of Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander. “That was a template for the whole album,” Mancuso goes on. “Lyrically, it’s about people who suck the blood out of you. Whether it’s in a relationship or business, it’s about those people who take the positive energy out of you.” “’Feeder’ started with a synth bass line with some synth chords,” says Jake. “It was the first idea Ron liked so we started right in on it.” Meanwhile, on “Big Mouth”, In This Moment singer Maria Brink delivers an impressive vocal spot, complimented by dualing solos from Lee and her band mate Chris Howorth. Mancuso says, “I found this progression Jake wrote that I really liked. It was interesting and intriguing. Jake’s pedal started disintegrating during the solo, and we recorded that. It’s different than anything I’ve ever heard, and Maria brought something very special to it.”The same could be said for the hard-hitting “Deceived” as well as the entrancing album closer, “Exquisite Tenderness”, which is the first song that Lee ever composed as a child. “I started playing piano when I was six,” he says. “Even when I picked up guitar, I still spent an hour at the piano a day because my mom made me. I would always tinker around, and this was the first song I ever wrote on my own. I never knew what to do with it. It was never a band song. I played it at the studio one day, and Ron thought it would be cool to put it on the record. I was game for that!” Also on the record, luminaries such as Rex Brown [ex-Pantera, Kill Devil Hill], Paul Di’Anno [ex-Iron Maiden], and Scott Reeder [ex-Kyuss] also make guest appearances, expanding the impact even more. It all solidifies this record as a true event for metal and hard rock fans everywhere. “This is a complete album,” concludes Mancuso. “I want people to come away with a whole album they can enjoy from start-to-finish. Like the classic albums we all grew up on .“It feels like a rebirth,” Jake leaves off. “I forgot how cool it was to play in front of a crowd. It made me happy just to play after so long. I was never one of those guys who wanted to stand in front of a bunch of people and have them stare at me. However, being on stage a couple of times now, I honestly remember how amazing it is. Red Dragon Cartel gives me that opportunity again, and I’m going to enjoy it.” http://reddragoncartel.com/

    Bill Manspeaker's Birthday Bash w/ Green Jello, Chunkpipe, Skinbound, Digital Afterlife, & Aneya Marie Green Jellÿ (pronounced "green jello") was formed in 1981 in Kenmore, NY by founding member Bill Manspeaker. Originally named Green Jellö, the band changed its name due to legal pressure from the owners of the Jell-O trademark, Kraft Foods, who claimed that it was an infringement of their trademark. Throughout the early 80’s, Green Jellÿ performed throughout NY, opening for bands like The Ramones and New York Dolls. Their reputation for over-the-top live performances and food-hurling audiences got them banned from most local venues. After finding local success, many of the members relocated to Hollywood, CA where they quickly became a fixture of the underground scene. Green Jellÿ then struck up an instant friendship with GWAR bonding with their mutual love of costumes and onstage antics. By this time, the band consisted of usually 20 members including new characters such as "Cowgod", "Rock n Roll Pumpkin", and "Satan's Ham." At one point even Danny Carey and Maynard James Keenan of Tool made the Green Jellÿ roster. In 1992, Zoo Entertainment, a subsidiary of BMG, released Green Jellÿ’s “Cereal Killer,” an all video album including MTV hit, “The Three Little Pigs.” The following year, Zoo released an audio version of the album called, “Cereal Killer Soundtrack.” This album went gold in the US, and sold nearly 2.5 million units worldwide. The success led BMG to open Green Jellÿ studios in Hollywood, where the band recorded Grammy nominated, “333.” “333” includes “The Bear Song” from the Farrelly Brother’s film, Dumb and Dumber. In the following years, Green Jellÿ continued to break the mold as they wrote the first ever video game soundtrack for Acclaim Entertainment video game, Spider Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage. Although they never officially broke up, band members went their separate ways until early 2008 when they reemerged for a US tour supporting a re-release of the Cereal Killer and 333 video/albums on DVD. After performing over 125 shows last year, all of them rife with the comedic and animated goodness that made Green Jellÿ a household name, the band is now preparing for another US tour to support their newest record “Musick To Insult Your Intelligence By” on Los Angeles based Rotten Records. This tour which will be bigger, better and fatter than ever promises to be more along the lines of a traveling Mardi Gras parade; with enough costumes and enough foodstuff to make Anthony Bourdain’s mouth water.

After 5½ hours of surgery, I was breathing on my own but have a long recovery ahead. There will be many ups and downs during my recovery but I know that I have to keep fighting. The doctors also noticed a cataract in my left eye but after a closer look they found I have an underdeveloped and detached retina, so they will take care of that next. I also have a feeding tube because I cannot swallow properly, they call it silent aspiration. But I keep on fighting … Family and friends are having a benefit for me to help offset hospital and medical expenses incurred during my 8 week stay and many procedures in the PICU at Strong Memorial. We could really use your help and support by attending and donating a basket, gift card, service, or food/drink item, it would be much appreciated. I hope to see you there. ~ Rocky IV

    Lazer Lloyd w/ Pooch & The Howling Cats Lazer Lloyd is an Israeli singer/songwriter and an international recording artist influenced by blues, gospel, southern rock, and the great guitar traditions of power and groove from Hendrix to Wes Montgomery. His music takes the audience into his world from the tender moments of a traveling musician in “By Your Side”, to a man struggling with life “Talk”, he opens hearts with the sound of his “world soul groove” on “Way Down” and “Back Porch” and rocks with intensity and joy on “Good Man Down”, “Set My Soul Free”. “When Lazer Lloyd enters the zone onstage, his eyes close tightly and he begins a peculiar dance – partly Tevye in the shtetl, partly psychedelic free form shuffle. He handles his guitar like it was an extension of his lanky but sturdy body, and the glorious noise that it emits sounds like wails and squeals emerging directly from his soul. He’s lost in the moment. He’s the best guitarist in Israel.” http://www.lazerlloyd.com/

Born from the culmination of the band’s twisted childhood traumas, incarcerations and abuse Optic is about the human evolution – not just of ourselves but of society - and emerging from the struggle scarred, but stronger than ever. With dark bass lines, driving beats, and a taste for musical circuitry Optic Oppression is now poised to turn heads and reshape the music scene. Optic’s newest release, Find A Way, is the band’s first conceptual EP. Splicing deranged audio samples together with rock guitars and throwing it over a hard rhythmic backbone with a touch of EDM, the band brings to life the sordid stories felt by so many but spoken by so few. From it's inception Optic Oppression’s music was made to break up the monotony of the western New York rock scene. After the untimely and violent death of their guitarist the remaining members of the renouned hard rock band, 86 To Nowhere, fell into a brief hiatus. Unable to find an adequate replacement guitarist it soon became apparent that the band had met it’s end and a new band had to be formed from its ashes. Lead singer Kendall Cage, bassist Tron Bastian and drummer Kyle Johnson then set out with a vision to find a guitarist for a new, more innovative sound. When they met multi-instrumentalists, Mike Novo and Greg Burt, the sparks ignited and the music began to take on a life of its own. On the forfront of musical evolution, Optic Oppression wields production as an instrument in itself. Combining influences ranging from Stabbing Westward to Nine Inch Nails, Linkin Park to Orgy, Optic Oppression walks the now shattered line between the analog and digital worlds. With a dark electronic writing style that has been described as "innovative" and "more than industrial", Optic Oppression’s new EP, Find A Way, seeks to grasp the cutting-edge and carve out a niche of it's own in a musical world where it seems everything has been done before. www.OpticOppression.com
