With award nominations, platinum certifications and critical acclaim to their credits, 11 brilliant artists have come together to heat up the summer of 2020 with the August 14th release of ENDLESS SUMMER with BETTER NOISE MUSIC.
This week, BLEEKER‘s cover of Blind Melon’s classic “No Rain” debuts, along with the first Better Noise Music release from NYC-based new signings, NEVRLANDS, “Messed Up Summer.” Of the cover, BLEEKER‘s Taylor Perkins says “This song was the first song on my brother’s mix cassette tape that he recorded off the radio. It instantly brings me to the 90’s. I didn’t know the real lyrics to this song until we covered it. I’ve been faking it for years!”
With each member coming from no shared musical background, lead singer Okan Kazdal, lead guitarist Louie Malpeli, bassist Caleb Buttner, and drummer Mikey Pittelli of NEVRLANDS found each other by pure luck. NEVRLANDS transcends normal genre barriers and empowers its listeners. NEVRLANDS is more than just music; it is a culture, a way of life, and a promise for adventure. Their track from ENDLESS SUMMER called “Messed Up Summer” is also set to appear on the band’s debut album. The band just finished recording with renowned producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount at ZK Productions, Jason Bell and Jordan Miller of HEAVY and Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, Anthrax).
You might be familiar with tracks like AWOLNATION‘s “Pacific Coast Highway (In the Movies)” featuring Rivers Cuomo of Weezer from their current album, DIRTY HEADS’ classic “My Sweet Summer” or the ode to wide-open spaces of Cory Marks’ “Drive,” but be prepared to tune into originals from hot new signings TEMPT “Hot Summer Dreams” – out now and EVA UNDER FIRE in addition to NEVRLANDS.
