PATRÓN Release Studio Session Video ‘Very Bad Boy’ Self-Titled Album Out Now Featuring Members Of Danzig, Kyuss, QOTSA

Desert groove rockers PATRÓN have released a studio session video for the track ‘Very Bad Boy’, featuring Barrett Martin on drums, Alain Johannes on bass and guitar, and Aurélien Barbolosi on guitar.

Watch the studio session video for ‘Very Bad Boy’ here:

‘Very Bad Boy’ is the third single taken from their debut self-titled album, Patrón, released via Klonosphere today, 29th May 2020.

PATRÓN is a new project fronted by Lo (aka Patrón) frontman of the band Loading Data. The self-titled debut album was produced by Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Eleven, Them Crooked Vultures, Chris Cornell Band) and also happens to be the last album ever recorded in his legendary studio 11AD, in Los Angeles.  

Lo had some well known friends record the album with him: Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age, The Bronx), Barrett Martin (Mad Season, Screaming Trees, Tuatara), Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Mondo Generator), Aurélien Barbolosi (Aston Villa) and Monique St Walker (Blackbird Days).

PATRÓN is a melting pot of influences, a new entity, a sort of Frankenstein creature, borrowing as much from stoner rock, 50s rock n roll, the Rat Pack as from 80s pop. It’s sexy, it’s groovy, it’s loud and heavy. Heady melodies that will stick to your skin like a thirsty alcoholic tick.

PATRÓN are: 
Lo aka Patrón : Lead Vocal / Guitar / Keyboard
Joey Castillo : Drums
Nick Oliveri : Bass
Aurélien Barbolosi : Guitars
Alain Johannes : Bass, Guitar, Keyboard, Vocal
Barrett Martin : Drums
Monique St Walker : Vocals
Aurelia : Vocals

Live plans for 2020 have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More news on this soon.

Ward XVI are proud to announce their signing to Metal Rocker Recordings, a sister label to Off Yer Rocka Records by Hard Rock Hell, releasing the first album on the label that was revealed earlier this year

“We’ve been talking with the Label for several months about the next album and our vision, which we are very passionate about and absolutely want to surround ourselves with people who not only feel the same, but also how we can work together to push each other to another level. From early on we were encouraged by the passion and enthusiasm that John brought to the conversation, and his vision for where he wants to take Ward XVI.”

John Ellis, Director of Media, label, Chic Festival and Off Yer Rocka Recordings:

“It is with great pleasure that we can announce our first signing to Metal Rocka Recordings are the incredible Ward XVI. For the uninitiated, Ward XVI are a superb hard ’n’ heavy band from the north-west of England that expertly balance a perfect blend of rock with the theatrical beauty and intensity of your favourite classic metal bands.The band have a stellar reputation as one of the UK’s best live acts and their shows are a sensual and frightening treat for the eyes and ears. Ward XVI’s first release for Metal Rocka Recordings is the follow up to the eagerly awaited and critically acclaimed to 2017’s “The Art Of Manipulation’,

Metal Rocka Recordings and Ward XVI cannot wait for you to hear the next chapter of Psychoberrie’s strange and terrifying tale, the album will be available on September 25th 2020!”

WARD XVI can also reveal details for their next album…”We’re very excited to bring you the sequel to our debut with our second album, ‘Metamorphosis‘, which continues the story from ‘The Art of Manipulation’, following a central character.

Our first album was released three years ago and we’ve been performing those songs for over five years, so we were desperate to get the next chapter written. We faced some challenges as a band due to touring and line-up changes and it became too difficult to sit and write and took longer than anticipated, so we removed ourselves from the normal gigging scene which felt a gamble at the time as it is easy to be forgotten, but it was a step that had to be taken to complete the writing.

We are a lot more confident about who we are with our sound and as a performing band compared to the first album, and as the line-up had changed somewhat, the decision-making process was much more straightforward, less forced and less stressful. The concept for a whole series of albums has been planned way before the release of our debut, and so writing and recording at home we were able to compose tracks that fit into the concept, and we were free to progress sonically without pressure – other than what we put on ourselves. We faced challenges head on and as a result we’re very excited to offer our inmates and new fans the next chapter.

Once the demos were complete, we again booked our time at Edge Recording Studios in Macclesfield to work with our producer-Mark Winterburn. This man is a genius and very much one of the band. He gets us, he’s not worried about  challenging each of us or developing tangents to songs that we had not thought of. We were far more prepared for the studio this time around so it was more controlled and less stressful. The ‘Metamorphosis’ sessions took ten continual days of recording from around twelve hours a day to get wrapped up. It all seemed very natural and didn’t feel like 4 years had passed since we were last there. Unlike the ‘Art of Manipulation’ sessions, we had the bonus of not having to camp in beer gardens and car park floors for two weeks, as we had the baby with us.”

‘Metamorphosis’ will be the darkest but probably the most important piece of the jigsaw detailing the making of the serial killer we came to both love and fear during the first album. We’ve challenged ourselves musically and theatrically with this next release

Psychoberrie, Lead vocals.

Metamorphosis synopsis:Deep inside the walls of Whittingham Asylum, a new inmate is tortured mercilessly at the hands of those who keep her. Consumed by a ferocious rage, she succumbs to the comfort of insanity. What emerges from the shadows is more evil and profane than any of her tormentors could have imagined…A mother’s love, formed in a haze of dolls and daisies, is blackened by merciless addiction. A little girl seeks protection from the broken and abandoned, anything to quell the monster that comes at night. Corrupted by unspeakable cruelty, pious innocence undergoes a malevolent transformation. Experience the elation of a first kill and the debauchery that ensues, culminating in a desperate run from the law.

‘Metamorphosis’ challenges everything you think you know about the notorious fiend, Psychoberrie. Travel back to the very beginning and ask yourself: is evil born, or made? 

Cry Of The Siren From Their Previous LP The Art of Manipulation

Continuing our ethos of a close family, we invited some very special guests to perform on the album from our celebrity phone book:

John Badger (ex Impavidus) provided full drums for the album.

Martin Crawley – keys and accordion, also contributed to the first album.

Anabelle Iratni – We are lucky to have Anabelle from 

Devilment provide amazing vocals to a couple of songs. She’s been a friend and fellow inmate since Bloodstock 2017, it was insane to finally have her perform with us.

Russ Custard – Our great friend from Footprints in the Custard also provided some insane vocals on this album. He and his band have been great friends of ours and again it was fantastic to share something special to us with people who are special to us.There are also other special guests but we have to keep that a secret for the time being. We have an amazing following of inmates who are as desperate to hear the next chapter, as are we to release and perform live on stage. The time is coming!

PRE-ORDER release info:We have spent a considerable amount of time thinking about our pre-orders and the merchandise for ‘Metamorphosis’. We have a commitment and responsibility for the production to be the best product possible, not just as a physical music release but also live, so along with funding the costs of making the album further proceeds will be re-invested into developing our new stage show. 

We are most excited with the bundles which offer inmates the option of new merchandise lines that not only match our show and theme. With another sneak peak at the concept of ‘Metamorphosis’, there will be tiered bundle options:



PupaThe painted lady

Bundle for the criminally insane

Within each there is an increase of the goodies included, of course, everyone will want the bundle for the criminally insane!

We also have on offer one (or two) off commissions of memorabilia that will be unique to the buyer. One such limited edition product is the opportunity to have your name scrawled onto the asylum wall within the booklet of the album, you’ll be  officially labelled and accepted as an official Ward XVI inmate! This will only be available from until 1st August as a pre-order only, so don’t delay!

Preorders of the album and merchandise will be available from

Inmates new and old, you are to thank for this release. You spurred us on to continue at a time when we could’ve given up so we dedicate this release to you and the immense support you have given and continue to give and when this lockdown is finally over we promise to bring a new and exciting show to accompany a new album which we’re incredibly proud of.

Static-X Release Official Music Video for Brand New Song ‘All These Years’ Featuring Vocals by Wayne Static

May 15, 2020 – Platinum selling International recording artists STATIC-X  released the official music video for “All These Years,” the second single off of their upcoming album, Project Regeneration Vol. 1. The song features lead vocals by the legendary late front-man WAYNE STATIC. Directed by Xer0 and co-directed by MATT ZANE, the clip is a campy narrative set in the bedroom of a young WAYNE STATIC back in the 1970’s, who comes face to face with his future rock star self through his black and white television.

The band says that the idea was inspired by the song lyrics for “All These Years:”

“It’s very challenging to represent someone in a music video, who is no longer alive, but that was something that we really wanted to do and I think it came out great” says drummer KEN JAY. “These are some of Wayne’s last works, so we really wanted to make this video all about him and to continue to celebrate his life and legacy. What better way to do that than through a fun, fictional story about how Wayne was inspired to become the legend that who he became through STATIC-X.”

The band’s 7th studio album, Project Regeneration, was scheduled to be released on May 29th but has been slightly delayed due manufacturing shut downs from the Corona virus. The album will be available across all streaming platforms and physical CD on July 10 and vinyl on August 14, 2020.

“The album is 100% complete,” says TONY CAMPOS. “We are just waiting for the manufacturing to resume. We have been given word that all is finally in production, so we are excited to get this out to the fans.”

… So open your eyes, take a look around, scratch the surface and question everything.

Wolf Acid Ritual writes, designs, records and mixes all W.A.R content
