This weeks Featured Artists are from the Alternative Rock Genre. Again we are featuring 2 different artists this week.
The Cranberries: Combining the melodic jangle of post-Smiths indie guitar pop with the lilting, trance-inducing sonic textures of late-'80s dream pop and adding a slight Celtic tint, the Cranberries became one of the more successful groups to emerge from the pre-Brit-pop U.K. indie scene of the early '90s. Led by vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, whose keening, powerful voice is the most distinctive element of the group's sound, the group initially made little impact in the United Kingdom.
Smash Mouth (named after Mike Ditka's term "smash mouth football") was formed in San Jose, Calif., in 1994 when boyhood friends and former band compadres Steve Harwell (vocals) and Kevin Coleman (drums) recruited Greg Camp (guitar) from a local cover band. Camp then persuaded Paul De Lisle (bass), with whom he'd played in another outfit, to take a chance on the new band.
After toiling for a couple of years on the San Jose scene, Smash Mouth caught fire when area radio station KOME started spinning what would be their breakthrough: "Nervous In The Alley" (Smash Mouth were the first unsigned band to receive regular rotation on the influential Modem Rock outlet). Soon thereafter, the quartet inked a deal with Interscope Records, which released their debut, Fush Yu Mang, in 1997.
Metalcore band Asking Alexandria have named former Make Me Famous frontman Denis Shaforostov as their new frontman.
He’s replaced Danny Worsnop, who quit in January to concentrate on We Are Harlot. The band have released their first track with Shaforostov at the mic, hear I Won’t Give In below.
AA lead the launch with a quote from US war hero Ryan Pitts: “Courage is not the absence of fear; it is the ability to move forward in the face of it.”
