On May 27th, Metal Blade Records will release SONGS FROM THE GARAGE (pre-order), the first album by comedian JIM BREUER and his backing band, THE LOUD & ROWDY. Earlier today, a new music video for "Thrash" hit my inbox, and essentially it's what happens here at my house when my wife takes The Rock Daughters™ on an adventure that leaves me with a few hours of free time... the exception being that I crank the metal sans headphones. Check this out... I'm digging it!

The journey of Fatherhood is different for everyone - an experience of learning and growth for each traveler. Every father has a story, and since launching this website, I've heard many tales spun by fellow "Rock Fathers" from all walks of life. Today comes the lyric video for "Sun" from MILTON J and the LEFTOVERS, a very DIY, and almost "handmade" love letter to Milton's boy, set to a track from their new album, VAIN WISDOM (iTunes | Amazon).

Watch & Listen: THE NOT-ITS! "Dance With Me"

Seattle's THE NOT-ITS! have long-been one of our favorite kindie rock bands here at Rock Father HQ, and as part of The Kindiependent Collective alongside CASPAR BABYPANTS, RECESS MONKEY, THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, THE HARMONICA POCKET and others, THE NOT-ITS! have been leading the charge for legit family-friendly rock. On February 19th, the band will release their sixth full-length album, with ARE YOU LISTENING? hitting the streets with 10 all-new jams. This week, the first music video from the album has arrived, a hand-animated piece by Chris Looney called "Dance With Me." Check it out...

You've heard a lot about Wisconsin's PRODUCT OF HATE here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, and for good reason - I've been their co-manager since 2010. I've also had the honor of calling these five guys my friends and brothers, the end result of a chance meeting when I caught them live in Kenosha, Wisconsin back in 2009. Now, after years of hard work, PRODUCT OF HATE's debut album, BURIED IN VIOLENCE (iTunes | Amazon), will be in stores everywhere on February 5, 2016 through legendary metal label Napalm Records. Last week, the new single "Monster" hit radio - quickly entering rotation on SiriusXM Liquid Metal (shout to Jose Mangin for getting behind it!), and this week it unexpectedly hit #10 on the iTunes Metal "Hot Tracks" Chart. With the track grabbing so many new ears, we've released  a new video to accompany it - one of three all-new videos that we shot this month to support the release. As with past PoH clips, I'm handling Directing and Editing duties, and for this batch of videos we had a fantastic new crew. Check out "Monster" below!

Music Video Debut: SPACE - "Strange World"

It was back in August that I posted about the latest resurgence of an old favourite of mine - UK-based SPACE. While "Strange World" was simply being announced as the new single at the time, it's out on November 13, and tonight I've got the video for you. "Strange World" is the title track for the next full-length album from SPACE, currently promised for an early 2016 release date. Check out the video...

If you're looking for some heavy tunes to spin this Halloween, look no further than Napalm Records' Heavy Halloween Playlist - just launched on YouTube and ready for your streaming and viewing pleasure. Packed with 32 of the "most brutal, bloody and creepy" videos from the Napalm Records roster, you'll find new music and classic tracks from the likes of POWERWOLF, HUNTRESS, MEGAHERZ, ALESTORM, MOONSPELL, and a band that's very near and dear to me... PRODUCT OF HATE. Toplining the Heavy Halloween Playlist is "Unholy Manipulator" - a video that I directed and edited. Originally created as a combination music video/short film while the band was still independent, it stars HELLRAISER's Ashley Laurence as the title character in a not-for-kids slash-fest produced by Robert Kurtzman (FROM DUSK 'TIL DAWN, WISHMASTER) and featuring the production and FX skills of his Creature Corps. The video was reissued with new audio and some updates via Bloody-Disgusting, and the single just hit iTunes. "Unholy Manipulator" appears on PRODUCT OF HATE's debut album, BURIED IN VIOLENCE, out February 5, 2016 via Napalm Records. Happy Halloween!
