(Stock Photo Used)

Brand New to Behind The Scenes to replace Friday Night Videos. The name came to me as I am sent so much music and for me to review every artist that comes to me would mean I would have to stay up later than usual.
The words in red before the videos are from the band's bio's
Let's get shuffling!

From FM Music Management comes the band, 
The Orphan The Poet with a very catchy song.
"Queen Cobra"

"The Orphan The Poet wants you to know they are here and not going anywhere. Based out of Columbus, OH, the threesome come bearing their own brand of take-it-or-leave-it alternative tracks and have been rapidly gaining fans thanks to their captivating live show, garnering the attention of Spotify playlists like The New Alt + Apple Music’s Breaking Alternative, SiriusXM’s Alt Nation, & KROQ in Los Angeles. And with the release of the new Queen Cobra EP, The Orphan The Poet have found themselves over the country on festival bills alongside acts like Twenty One Pilots, X Ambassadors, YUNGBLUD, lovelythe-band, and more.


Now comes Remember The Monsters from O'Donnel Media Group & their song "Sink"

"Marking their official emergence in 2016, Remember the Monsters quickly gained significant attention from the release of their single, "The Pieces Remain." The release, to date, has seen over 5MILLION streams across Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube through the promotion of fan-crafted videos and tremendous underground support!





Next comes Jenny Teator from TAG Publicity and her single for "Daughter of the Devil"

Jenny Teator is a St. Louis native who’s made her move to Nashville sharing her soul through her guitar and vocals. Jenny is a nationally-touring & recording artist who’s performed at notable venues and festivals such as: Old Rock House (St. Louis, MO), The Viper Room (Los Angeles, CA), Main-stage at the 2018 Venice Blues Fest (Venice, FL), The Bluebird Cafe (Nashville,TN), Exit-In (Nashville, TN), and many more. She released her debut single, "Surrender," which has surpassed 100,000+ streams on Spotify. The single has received reviews world-wide.



Another one from TAG Publicity is Raven Black and their single for "He Is The One".

"LA-based Theatrical Metal Band RAVEN BLACK revealed the lyric video for their new single, "He is the One, " off of their upcoming third album.




Now to shift gears altogether and go ways of country. music. Blane Howard's song "Promise To Love Her"
from 117 Publicity

 When Arkansas native Blane Howard wrote “Promise to Love Her” it was never meant to be anything more than a simple gift. A gift that Howard surprised his bride, Megan, with on the morning of their wedding. Penning the song was, for him, less about writing a song, and more about translating his love for his wife into something they could always share, and it is one that most people will surely relate with. The song has quickly become his biggest success to date with more than 40 million streams across digital platforms. Shortly after the song’s release, at his fans’ behest, Blane and some friends created a video for the song, which included actual footage from his own wedding. While the original video has garnered more than 7.5 million views online.



From Frontiers Music S.R.L. comes Pretty Maids and their song "Will You Still Kiss Me(If You See Me In Heaven)

"Undress Your Madness” is Pretty Maids’ highly anticipated follow up to 2016's critically and commercially successful release “Kingmaker", a record that continued the “revitalized” path that the band set out upon with the now-classic albums “Pandemonium” and “Motherland."

It's always difficult to follow a successful and inspired record, but “ Undress Your Madness” shows Pretty Maids are still in the freshest and most vital phase of their career since the early ’90s.



Now for fans of Progressive Rock comes The Flower Kings from Inside Out Music and their song
"Black Flag"

"After 2018’s much-lauded solo effort ‘Manifesto of an Alchemist’ from Roine Stolt (Transatlantic, The Sea Within, Anderson/Stolt etc.) and highly successful FLOWER KINGS REVISITED shows, THE FLOWER KINGS now return with a revamped line-up and stunning new album!



Switching gears again here is rapper Ruudawakening 
from Independent Music Promotions and his song 
"Dreamers"

Careful or this one will go over your head. RuudAwakening is that rare rapper who brings a complete subversive level to his rhymes, using sarcasm and brutal honesty to deliver atypical messages over hard modern trap/rap music. Much like fellow Floridian rapper Denzel Curry or Flatbush duo The Underachievers, you may hear a 'flossing' lyric or 'flexing' lyric mixed with the politic, but to dismiss this as typical trap/rap music would be a significant oversight. RA has a lot to say over a sprawling 10 tracks; no guests, just one man's passion.




From Metal Blade Records we have Tribulation and one of the best songs I have heard this year!
                 "Strange Gateways Beckon"

"Tribulation in the flesh. Live on stage. In front of a seated audience. At one of Stockholm’s oldest and most storied venues. Normally, this would be unceremonious, but for Alive & Dead at Södra Teatern, Tribulation’s first live album, it was an event to behold, for the monsters were let out of their cages to run wild as the Swedes imparted death metal of distinction across two fearsome sets. Invited by ex-Nirvana 2002 vocalist and curator Orvar Säfström, who also bedeviled the audience as master of ceremonies, Tribulation treated their besuited Swedish legions to unrivaled dark magic at their first-ever Södra Teatern (Southern Theatre) main hall gig.

“Södra Teatern is an old establishment,” guitarist Adam Zaars says. “We’ve been there as guests and even played there a few times before, but before this we never had the pleasure and privilege of playing the beautiful, and in ways haunting, the main hall. We’ve played many different kinds of venues and locations, from playing on the floor in small rundown bars to playing the big festival stages and we’ve enjoyed all of it, but playing at Södra Teatern truly felt like Tribulation, a kind of place where we in a sense belong. At least at the moment. We’re glad we could capture it in the way we did!”

Thank you for joining me on this Sunday Shuffle.
