I'm finally working on new music again. Doing it solo instead though, so it might take longer. In the meantime I'm thinking I might add keys and maybe re-do the clean backing vocals on "Stereo Stereo". We'll see how that goes.
Also considering that contest that I promised but never did...
I Am King Tony - "Stereo Stereo" available on RBN!

Not the band we hinted before heres another band we will be bringing to the game!
(Hint - WWE Hell in the Cell)
Malcolm Rivers – six guys from Muenster/Germany play music somewhere between Hardcore, Metal and Electronica.
And they do so since 2008, when guitar player Jan started looking for like-minded musicians to play Hardcore without blinkers. Looking back, it seems only consequential that the first to answer his ad saying “looking for vocals, bass, guitar and drums” was a keyboard player. This set the course for everything that followed: While they might not reinvent the wheel with each song, they still try to cover the whole spectrum Hardcore offers und to write original and positive songs that reach and move their listeners. Having gone through the obligatory to and fro that every new band experiences, Malcolm Rivers found a stable line-up in mid-2009. Two weeks later, they played their first show, and after a few months they entered the studio to record their debut EP, which was released in 2011. Later that year, guitar player Andre left the band to focus his energy on his most recent project: being a father. He was replaced by Till, a friend of the band who had already filled in for Andre at some previous shows.
Malcolm Rivers are not your typical run-of-the-mill Hardcore band. While the songs are deeply rooted in that genre, they try to overcome its limitations by incorporating elements from various neighbouring (and sometimes even not-quite-so-neighbouring) genres. Despite the multitude of musical sources, Malcolm Rivers’ songs maintain their unmistakeable identity – just like Malcolm Rivers, the schizophrenic protagonist from the movie “Identity” does by incorporating many personalities into one – albeit murderous – character.
Malcolm Rivers’ unique style manifests itself on their first, self-produced EP, which so far has garnered positive reviews in a number of print and online zines. Apparently, the EP has been reviewed by people with open minds and a wide conception of what Hardcore can and should sound like. Thus encouraged, Malcolm Rivers currently gear up for their first full-length album by doing what in their eyes constitutes being a band: They write new songs, develop their style and play just the kind of music they want to play - somewhere between Hardcore, Metal and Electronica.
That's one way to promote your songs. How many people will buy all thirty songs to enter this contest?
Final Song Total (yet it keeps growing): 1,204
Giving it all to one person :l
Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing
Face it bro, my divinity is unassailable
Hello! I'd like to put my hat in the ring and announce something that's not very big, but it's surprising who it is.
I am working on three songs from the artist known as Tyler Green, or here on the forums, TylerFG. They are Truism, Regeneration, and Arc Words, from his self-made album, "Alons-y!!" (yes, a Doctor Who reference). These songs are less like actual songs and more like experiments with Garage Band. So give him a hand for stepping up on the RBN
Now that's the only thing I can officially announce, but I can't see the harm in leaving little hints here and there. Note that these are not official, but they are in contacts to get me songs.
First Artist's Hint:
A band named after a Transformer.
Separate Artist, different hint:
One of the most awesome drum songs ever.
Third Artist, Third Hint:
Featured on Rocksmith.

GigakoopsRBN: You want your songs on Rock Band? So do we!
Happily discovering new music through the RBN since March 2010.
But again, we'll have more contests in the future.
You didn't think we were done with the announcements already did you?
The day isn't even half over yet!
We're happy to announce that we'll be bringing a second song from Canadian super group The Trews!
Hope and Ruin is being authored now and should hit play testing in a few weeks!
Here's the music video for Hope and Ruin for those not familiar :
