The Hellion Rocks has grown and evolved over the years. We have come a long way since the beginning where we were begging for written interviews with anyone we could get. We now have readers in 170 countries around the world, and are now doing phone and video interviews and photographing national acts as well as the up and coming bands we love to promote. It has even progressed to the point where we are being hit up by the bands and their publicists for coverage, which is truly an honor. Recently one publicist mentioned to me in a conversation that people have great things to say about the Hellion Rocks, that my friends, is truly humbling.
Now it is time to evolve yet again, I have been on a personal mission to find the perfect theme song for the Hellion Rocks. I have scoured the earth from top to bottom, had many a phone conversation, sent a myriad of emails, and listened to A LOT of music. I am proud to say: MISSION ACOMPLISHED!
We at the Hellion Rocks are excited to announce “No Way But Down” by Throw The Temple as the official theme song for the Hellion Rocks. This track is from their forthcoming debut CD No Way But Down which drops on Sept. 5th 2015.
Why this track you may ask? I can say all kinds of things like, “it’s so badass”, or “because it has killer licks”, but to be honest with you, it just fit. I happen to know the guys in Throw The Temple personally and know of their hard work and struggles, and yet that had nothing to do with it either. The song just feels right for the Hellion Rocks. Plus it gives an up and coming band a nod which is one of the reasons we do this in the first place.
What does this really mean for the Hellion Rocks? Well several things, we will now feature sections of the song as the opener and closer for our audio and video interviews as well as some up and coming podcasts we are in development of. Another project that will hopefully come to fruition soon is a video show (think That Metal Show only geared for bands that are up and coming) where the track will be used again to open and close said show.
So there you have it, I would like to personally thank Throw The Temple for deciding to work with us on this. And we will leave you with a look/listen to what’s to come. Check it out right here:
well, there’s “No Way But Down”
