Founded in 2006 before TVC had even hit their teenage years, the band have since released a self-titled debut album, played numerous shows in and outside of Iceland and built up a rather 'energetic' reputation from their live performances. The trio have already secured themselves a slot on the 2014 Roadburn Festival in Holland. 'Voyage', the band's Nuclear Blast debut release is scheduled for an early 2014 and will include the amazing first single, 'Expand Your Mind'. The official music video has just been released and will give you a tantalising taster on what TVC are all about, if you can make sense of it of course. So, set your mind free and take it back to that lazy-hazy... Icelandic summer of '69, boil up some mushrooms

Protest The Hero



SWEDISH GUITAR-STAR Dregen will have his first solo album released via Spinefarm Records in the UK on October 7th. Titled simply "Dregen", this forthcoming release is a modern take on an era when rock music came ready-dipped in decadence and glamour; when the commercial and the credible could sit comfortably side by side; when albums were a great 35 minutes over 2 sides of vinyl rather than fleshed out with filler; when backing vocals were big & brash & (feather) boa"d; when heels & musicians were generally high; when emotion & entertainment were the driving forces, and when lifestyle was king" Check out the video here..
