It’s a great day for Reignwolf fans ! There is evidence of life.
The band posted on Facebook announcing fall US and Canada tour dates and hinted at music they have been putting together. It was like a beacon to many of their hardcore fans who have stayed the course, in hopes that they had not seen the last of Jordan Cook, the passionate force behind the wall of explosive guitar brilliance that is the stuff legends are made of – – – fire and fury. (Check out the formidable singles ‘In the Dark’ and ‘Are You Satisfied’ to get a flavor of the distortion- laden blues this guy can lay down).
Reignwolf have maintained a rather low profile conventionally, rolling across the country, gathering fans from their travels and live shows. That doesn’t mean they have not been on the music radar. Their resume’ includes a prestigious spot opening for Black Sabbath on their Canadian tour, playing at Sasquatch, Lollapalooza , and Voodoo Festival to name a few. All without a single proper album. In past interviews the band has discussed what they feel are the challenges of capturing the “essence” of their live music.
After releasing one track last year, ‘Hardcore’, fans looked to the release of a promised first full length album — then nothing. If their short-list arsenal of singles gives a peek into what might be coming next, no doubt we are all in for an incredible churching in the school of Reignwolf.

#Rockpicks June 2018
Just discovered this self-titled solo EP project from Skillet drummer, Jen Ledger.
Titled “Ledger”, the 6 track EP was released April 13 through Hear It Loud, a label imprint launched by Skillet frontman John Cooper and his wife. Ledger’s debut truly showcases the beauty and depth of her talents – delivering powerful rock to soft delicate vocals. Songwriting and lyrics are brilliantly constructed, both relevant and honest.
Looking forward to future releases from her solo project.

#Rockpicks May 2018
New solo release from Coyle Girelli, previously of ‘Your Vegas’, and frontman for ‘The Chevin’. * (check these bold and powerful albums out too – “A Town and Two Cities” , Your Vegas , and “Borderland” , The Chevin )*
This is the first single from his debut solo album, “Love Kills” to be released this summer on Honey Lemon records. Girelli spent time in songwriting sessions with music legend Mac Davis, which he states were pivotal in the evolution of the songs in the new album. Stating huge influences from the likes of Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash, Girelli emotes his own unique moody, romantic spirit to his music, which he labels as “Modern Noir”.
This velvety smooth crooner does what he does best —creating an intriguing, vintage sounding ballad across a lush guitar soundscape.
“Where’s My Girl ?
J’ adore !
Looking forward to more gems like this on the album.
“Starting Gun ” from The Bad Flowers set for release February 16th.
This Cannock three-piece deliver steady, bold, unapologetic riff-laden rock with swagger and intensity. If you love the 70s and 80s rock, you’ll love their wall of sound. Determined as ever, the band shows they have the grit and passion to keep this train roaring forward.
