The Virginmarys: Our Passion That They Could Not Shake

In a world of Divides, our love of The Virginmarys brought us together – Simon

We were riding out to meet the sun, we were shaking from the things we’d done
We were breaking every pattern, straying from the map to make a new life on the run

It was early 2012 and one of my friends made me a playlist featuring a bunch of new bands for me to check out. Little I knew that this particular playlist included one band that would inspire my entire world. Their name was The Virginmarys.

Featured EP / Morningside Lane – Mellow Drama

New Jersey rockers Morningside Lane are back with a new fierce-sounding EP called Mellow Drama. The record, once again produced by the one and only Pete Steinkopf (Bouncing Souls), proves the four-piece get stronger and bolder with each new release.  Mellow Drama is an excellent, rich record and a great statement to the band’s future direction.  Good news is that the guys are planning a month long UK tour next year! Watch this space.

Here is some info about the EP, new video and UK tour from the band’s guitarist Jon.

Featured EP / Morningside Lane – A Fifth of Elvis

It’s been exactly one year since I’ve interviewed New Jersey’s Morningside Lane for MGMB, and it looks like the guys have been working really hard towards their brand new 6-track EP A Fifth of Elvis. The record, produced and mixed by Pete Steinkopf from The Bouncing Souls is a clear step forward for the alt rock four-piece. The music and lyrics on the EP show the band have come a long way since their previous release. MSL’s guitarist Jon says: ”This record is something that doesn’t sound like our first two. It’s broader and it covers more ground. We’ve grown a hell of a lot as a band and we’re still growing. Our sound is always being upgraded and new influences are always coming about. This album is more about wasted youth and anger. It’s about remembering the past, the way things used to be and kissing those days goodbye. It came out better than we could ever dream and it’s everything a Morningside Lane record should be.” That’s right. A Fifth of Elvis certainly features all the right elements of a well mastered record.
