Get to know PVRIS - Exclusive Interview and Photos

I met up with the band PVRIS on their Seattle Tour stop at the Neptune Theater. My friend and colleague, Jake Gravbrot came along with me and took photos while I hung out and talked about life now and life before they set the world on fire with their debut album, "white noise"

You and I (stripped) is an exclusive off the latest deluxe edition of White Noise.

More info on all things PVRIS - http://www.pvris.com/

instagram - @thisisPVRIS

These were some of the moments captured that night in Seattle. Enjoy the show. We got to talk about a wide scope of topics and stories. A few things we got into was Life before and after PVRIS. Also, How to maximize productivity and keep that momentum. A true artist is truly unique and it feels good to just sit back and have an open discussion on aesthetic, digital marketing, being in the spotlight. Do you believe in Ghosts? Lynn has some ideas about them. Just have a listen and be sure and stay till the end! Thank you and please subscribe if you listen on Itunes.

PVRIS (pronounced Paris)[1] is an American rock band from Lowell,Massachusetts formed by members Lyndsey Gunnulfsen, Alex Babinski, and Brian MacDonald. The band formed originally under the name Paris but later changed it to PVRIS in the summer of 2013 citing legal reasons. They have released a self-titled EP, an acoustic EP, before signing to Rise and Velocity Records and released their single "St. Patrick" on June 24, 2014 along with a music video. They released their debut album, White Noise, in November 2014, and the deluxe version of White Noise on April 22, 2016.

Explicit Content Punk Party with Neutralboy & The Enemies Of

On this episode of The Mike Herrera Hour we go deep with Mike Moen (Michael Frottage) of Neutralboy, big time lighting and dick trick aficionado Jef Benjamin of The Enemies Of and expert builder and musician playing bass for Neutral Boy, Anton Reder. These guys are good friends of mine that I've known for over 10 years now. It was great to catch them the day before they hit the road to Punk Rock Bowling. See @Neutralboymusic (instagram) on tour right now on the western side of the United States of America.

This conversation gets off to a slow start but quickly picks up speed, coarse language and some actual feelings. Listen as I peel back on the layers of Mike "the Pike" Moen's soul. Wanna hear about when Tom Wisniewski (MXPX) and I went to see our (future) light guy's performance in the world famous comedy show, Puppetry of the Penis? Find out the whole story in this episode.

MHH 154 Shane Told of Silverstein

Shane Told has a story to tell and he does it well, first with his band Silverstein, but second his solo material River Oaks, or now his recent endeavor into the fray of podcasting with a great show called Lead Singer Syndrome where he talks to… yup, lead singers about the craft, the life, the layers of the people you listen to sing their hearts out. It's a great concept and I'm gonna be on the program soon enough. Stay tuned for that as well. Here's a little bio from his page but the sure way to enlightenment is to listen to this episode.

"What is it like to be one of the most important members of a band? Shane Told, frontman of the critically-acclaimed rock band Silverstein, brings you candid interviews with all of your favorite singers on this podcast. Is it really all sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll? Find out for yourself on Lead Singer Syndrome." - JabberJaw Media

 

In this episode we know we are being watched and listened to but you'll have to listen to really grasp the creepiness of what we are talking about.

This is also the first episode of the Mike Herrera Hour in collaboration with Jabber Jaw. It's a way to collaborate more on the podcasting end of things. I like what Shane is doing and I'm liking the Break it Down Podcast with Matt Carter. In terms of content, those two shows go with my show pretty well. So we're all in good company. Another easy way to get to the show and other great shows. Click the link below to see my page on Jabber Jaw.

New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is definitely a time of celebration. A time to let loose one last time before going back to our regularly scheduled programming. But as we grow and move forward, as the new years become golden oldies, we also think of New Year's Eve as a time to reflect on the past year, a time to take personal inventory, to make note of the victories, the best times, family and friends. There is value in remembering and taking note of mistakes. But think of that as the price of learning. That's what I've been telling myself anyway!

On the last day of the year, take one last pause to look ahead and set goals, make plans, and keep working hard against your strongest competition, yourself.

I wanted to see how far I could go with this song and the production.
The truth is I could have gone even further. Actually, I did go further and pulled it back to a place that I felt had the feel I was in search of. Something new for me. Oh don't be fooled, behind it all it's just a song. That's what I do. I like to write snapshots of a time or place. Simple mostly but effective. Effective in my own way. Below you'll find a list of credits for the musicians, engineers, and video production. Thank you to Jody, Will, Ben, Greg, Connr, Mathew, and Bradly on the audio end. Thanks to my Family, Bryan, Jake, Robbi, for working with me on the video. It came together super fast!

In the video the main character, the photos, are a mainline right back in time for me,like a spinal tap into my memory banks. I instantly go back to those days, nights, streets, my living room. It was a simple idea that was not as easy to pull off as I had thought it would be. Bryan Buchelt and I talked about what was doable on very short notice and my idea was a slide show. Boom. Bryan had some strong visual ideas that we tried to capture in our fly by night film studio (MTS). Because the song was about the best things in life, I decided to put as many family photos in the video that I could.

This is a new song that was more about looking back on the year visually with the live slide show video, but the lyrics tell a story of reflection on the past year, determination in the present, and looking ahead with eyes full of wonder and hearts opened wide in the future. To put it plainly, I wrote New Year's Eve as a reminder to myself and anyone that listens to really think about what and who is important in your life. Make choices in your own life. Don't worry about dictating others. The lyrics tell a story that is personal to me, but as with many of my songs, if you can relate to this please make this part of your last day of 2015 and many other days to come in the future. Thanks for listening!

If you want to own the song you can download it from our own site by clicking the above link and at this time it's the only place to buy. (no itunes or amazon, this was very last minute and DIY)

New Year's Eve Lyrics

walk down to the waters edge
watch the tide come in
think about this life and the places you have been
with plans so big and a love so strong we can carry on
the remaining days grow dark
but all it ever takes is that last spark

New Year's Eve
hopes held up high
as we say goodbye, 365 till the next NYE
feels good tonight to know you're alive

midnight, NYE turns to new years day
drank a couple few too many champagnes
i guess that's just my way
of taking the bull by the tail and shaking it around
I got no demands
but i would love to have you around on new years eve

New Year's Eve
hopes held up high
as we say goodbye
365 till the next NYE
feels good tonight
feels good tonight just to know you're alive
365 - 365 till the next NYE
with hopes held up high

untangle the lights and focus them
bright on your future
enjoy your last night and ride that train out of the past
ride that train out of the past

New Year's Eve
hopes held up high
as we say goodbye NYE

New Year's Eve
hopes held up high
as we say goodbye
365 till the next NYE
feels good tonight
feels good tonight just to know you're alive
365 - 365 till the next NYE
with hopes held up high
