New album in PledgeMusic from Gothic Rockers Imbolg


This will be our second album featuring styles of Goth, Punk, Death Rock and Synth-Imbolg.

Gothic rock is alive and well. Though the genre went underground several years ago, their’s a renaissance lately. Thanks to millennials who want to try cool bands before any of you heard them, I think it is ok to say that this decade is a healthy time for Gothic rock.

Nate Dal Cais started Imbolg 10 years ago. Apart from the robust and alluring music, they’re also posting up a Pledge Music link for fans to help support their upcoming project. According to Dal Cais:

We are taking preorders for our new album and offering some limited time perks, plus some of the money goes to charity. I may have asked you before, but we just made lots of updates.

They’re proving to me day to day that it is OK to have a dark heart but still show a little kindness inside. Well, in fact most of the cool people I know are gothic rockers and they’re really amazing. which is why I really support the genre.

They also got awesome followers who can say great things about them:

“Truly tantalizing”-Mick Mercer
“Once you have heard them, the only thing left to wonder is why you haven’t before”- Jessika Hulse, Gothic Beauty Magazine

Check out the Pledge Music link under this post, but let me share this little bio I got from their site:

NYC based band has been performing in the Northeast region for close to a decade noted for their ritualistic stage show and undying spirit that helps all in attendance capture the true meaning of the Pagan Holiday the band was named after. This particular album has an eclectic feel to it, where as some some songs are slow, others are fast, some are heavier and some are lighter, and a few songs are instrumental pieces like “Echoes on Water” and “Tragedy in the Key of A major”. All however state powerful messages whether it is based off a traditional story such as in the case of the song: “Tieg O’Kane & the Corpse”, or the song played early on in the album about the simple feelings of disdain for being alive called: “Duisigh(awaken)” . All these songs are ensured to bring out emotions that one and all can truly relate to. Except in the Case of the song called : “Thy Dark Gift”, unless of course you have just become a Vampire

Their live shows are really like nothing else you’ve seen before.Do check them out when you are on the East coast.


Pledgemusic with the March Violets: Mortality Tour and Album

One of the influential bands in the darkwave genre, the March Violets have an album coming out. And this is possible because of your help. There are many things coming up from this beautiful band. There’s the Mortality tour(which happens to be the name of the upcoming album) and also goodies that they are giving out when you make your pledge.

October is a good month for this type of music. The Goth in me loves it. And I am sure the children of darkness out there are going to like the new album, Mortality. Here’s the message from the band:

The ‘Mortality Tour and Album’ is the new Pledge from the March Violets. Throughout October pledgers get to experience a month of touring around the East Coast, with Backstage Action, Road Movie high jinx and other Purple nonsense. The Violets will be playing classic tracks live, then recording them in November in Chicago. With exclusive daily footage and a virtual Access Pass pledgers will be able to participate in the highs and lows of the entire Tour and Studio Saga. The involvement continues right up to Xmas, with an Advent Calendar with interesting Violet goodies behind each door, culminating in the Album download on Xmas day! 
Physical ‘exclusives’, that will be shipped after Xmas, include a Double CD, a Vinyl LP and a double DVD with a full concert, a road movie, and footage from the entire life of the band, right back to the early Eighties. It’s a new way of touring that DOES come to your home town, social media at its rocking best. Support the Violets, Pledge Purple! Many Thanks.

Snake Dance is one track that introduced me to their music.

JR Richards of Dishwalla goes Pledgemusic for the Upcoming Album.

JR Richards Original Singer/Songwriter of ‘DISHWALLA’

 is releasing a New Album through Pledgemusic!

Times have changed.

There’s no label, there’s no record deal. -JR Richards

Yep, I learned this via the post of Glen Phllips on Facebook(as a loyal follower for years) and the video is insanely amazing. I love Dishwalla as they helped shape my growing up years. JR Richards has a mellow voice which is a surprise because he always belts out those intense songs.

So if getting into the pledge means having access to the recording, the production and the completion process(including the making of the music video) then I wanna be rich! To comment on the quote from JR Richards above, yes times have changed. It’s because record labels are supporting terrible music that sell millions.

It seems JR Richards has done ok after Diswalla. The life of a rock musician is challenging. I learned that after reading the book of Kim Gordon called Girl in a Band.
