“Captain” Kirk Douglas and Mark Kelley of The Roots are joined by Ricc Sheridan of Earl Greyhound in this psychedelic power trio. You know him as the guitarist who brings it every night on Jimmy Fallon’s show and in countless performances with the Roots—now see him in his family man persona as he gets ready to boogie with the kids.

Year of The Dragon (ft. Dirty Walt of Fishbone)
In the Chinese zodiac, the dragon is a symbol of strength and harmony. Not surprisingly the two leaders of Year of the Dragon, Roderick "Rodcore" Palmer, and Walter Adam Kibby, II AKA Dirty Walt, were born within days of each other under that sign.

Rodcore, has had various starts and stops with different incarnations of YOTD in the past between stints with other Los Angeles based bands, but it was not until Dirty Walt left the band that he co-founded and co-led for over twenty-five years, Ska-Punk-Funk legends Fishbone, along with fellow Fishbone solider guitarist Spacey T, that the seeds of the current YOTD were planted.

In 2006, the three recorded and self-released an EP, A Time To Love Is A Time To Bleed which received critical acclaim and sold well through the internet and at shows. Wanting to take things to the next level, Dirty Walt and Rodcore, put together a regular band and started gigging weekly around Los Angeles and the surrounding areas, capitalizing on Fishbone's loyal fan base and attracting new fans of their own with YOTD's own brand of hardcore with a funk groove and soulful tag team vocals.

Around this time, the band began a partnership with a start-up indie label, The International Brotherhood of Consequential Truth that would result in the brand new YOTD release, Blunt Force Karma.

Recorded in LA, Blunt Force Karma is the product of that freedom and their years in the game. Thirteen songs recorded with drummer, Kerim Imes, bassist Elliott Lawrence, and guitarists Jason "JMR" Richardson and Spacey T, Blunt Force Karma is a pure, uncut assault on the mind and spirit.

To follow that up, the band is left the IBCT and chose to do a shorter e.p. that will soon be released called FIVE FINGERS OF DEF. It was recorded and will be released by Greg Hetson, guitarist of punk legends Circle Jerks and Bad Religion! The band will be touring shortly after, and now consists of Marc Rey (guitar), T-Bone (bass) and Jason Gaddis on the drum throne.

A Time To Love Is A Time To Bleed & Blunt Force Karma available now and available at www.theibct.com and CDBaby. FIVE FINGERS OF DEF has been released by Stylus Recs (www.stylusrecs.com) and you can also find the band's latest release, NOT A RIOT...THE MIXTAPE on iTunes and Amazon!

MILITIA VOX
Militia Vox (aka MilitiA.), well known as the frontwoman for Judas Priestess and Swear on Your Life, as well as former host and VJ on MTV2, VH1 and Fuse, has now stepped forward as a solo artist. Dark, heavy and haunting, Militia Vox is a unique musical experience that showcases the unparalleled talent, four-octave range, power and performance skills of this “Dark Diva.” Based in NYC, Militia has performed with Dee Snider, Cyndi Lauper and Living Colour, among others, and won over crowds at national festivals and events. Her shows have already toured in New York, Texas and California and she currently holds a residency at Times Scare in Times Square, Manhattan.

Militia Vox’s music will appeal to fans of Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Skunk Anansie and Metallica’s S&M. Her first release BAIT is available everywhere as of Halloween 2014. It’s the first part of a two-album concept series, THE VILLAINESS, which represents Militia Vox as a response to, and the antithesis of the pop princesses of today. She describes the music as “Femme Metale”- in praise of wicked women.
