SKARLETT RIOT return with Outstanding follow-up album ‘INVICTA’

Listen for ‘Human’ now playing as a FRESH CUT on A2Z

After the success of their second album ‘Regenerate’, the hard-hitting UK quartet Skarlett Riot reinforced their interest from far and wide. With ‘Regenerated’ the band introduced their listeners to a harder, heavier and faster sound, but still driven by the anthemic hooks that have kept Skarlett Riot at the forefront of the UK modern metal scene. The band have constantly developed and honed their craft; and the band are in comfortable in their darker and heavier guise, with elements of Asking Alexandria, In This Moment and Bullet for My Valentine shining through; opening up all new possibilities for the band.

The follow-up to their Despotz Records release ‘Regenerate’, the album was recorded throughout a time of global uncertainty and confusion but despite what was going on in the world, ‘Invicta’ is the most focused and forthright release of the band’s career. Built around the spectacular vocals of Skarlett and a powerful musical landscape unique to the band, ‘Invicta’ is melodic, intense, and packed with anthems. Skarlett has broadened her vocals this time out, adding some harsh elements to proceedings, giving the songs and the band and aggressive edge. The first three singles from the album (‘Human’, ‘Gravity’ and ‘Stronger’) introduced the new sound to great acclaim and set the tone for what to expect from the album and from Skarlett Riot in 2021. 

The band comments; ‘We are so excited to finally release our brand-new album ‘INVICTA’! This album has been three years in the making and we can’t wait for you to hear the results of the huge amount of work that’s gone into this. We’ve overcome so much together as a band throughout the years and ‘Invicta’ represents the physical and mental struggles we’ve experienced together and individually, making us who we are today – Invicta.” – Skarlett Riot.  

Skarlett Riot have taken the scene by storm with their powerful, riff-led songs blending melody and grit with a muscular backbone. Add to that an ear for infectious hooks, a singer blessed with a huge voice, and you have a band that not only has bags of attitude but the songs to back them up! Having wowed audiences at Download Festival, earning a 4KKKK live review from KERRANG!, Leeds and Reading Festival, Metal Female Voices Festival, Bloodstock, Hard Rock Hell, Camden Rocks, Steelhouse, Takedown, Giants Of Rock, S.O.S and a host of other festivals, Skarlett Riot have also shared stages with the likes of Funeral For A Friend, Butcher Babies, Deaf Havana, The Darkness, Wednesday 13, Heaven’s Basement, Kamelot, Gus G, Devilskin, Hammerfall, Glamour Of The Kill, Leaves’ Eyes, Symo Cyco, Black Spiders, plus many more.

Fierce Rocker Jax Hollow Rallies Behind The Underdogs Of 2020 With Inspiring Anthem, ‘Say My Name’

‘Say My Name’ Is now a FRESH CUT on

Jax Hollow continues to blaze her own trail as an outspoken, talented shredder and songwriter with her new single and video for “Say My Name.” The beautifully chaotic track is the follow up to “High Class Bitch” from the Nashvillian’s debut album “Underdog Anthems,” coming February 2021. Hollow collaborated with Joshua Shoemaker to create the gritty, artsy video for her new single — which opens with her demonstrating hypnotic guitar skills.

“‘Say My Name’ was supposed to be THE Underdog Anthem off the Underdog Anthems album,” Jax says. “It’s a song about social unrest, 2020 leaving the entertainment industry in ruins and on the brink of collapse, and the resilience of all the Creatives. We adapt fast because we’re used to being punched around, but we will stop at nothing to continue pursuing our passions and share our futures with the world. That’s why you’ll see me destroying my friend’s work and screaming, ‘Starting from nothing again!’ — that’s what it feels like.”

She continues, “I worked my whole life to play music for a living full time, traveling the world and that was yanked out from under me in 2020, so I’m even less afraid of failure and even more determined now. It can be fun to start from the bottom again because you have experience and time to re-envision yourself.”

At first listen, the upcoming album has left music critics reeling. Travis host of “The Side Stage Show” on 95.9 KRFF Fargo/Moorhead raves, “Jax Hollow has the talent, attitude and songs that it takes to carry the torch and lead the way for new rock!”

With the release of Underdog Anthems, Jax unleashes the full power of her vagabond, soul-searching and heart-piercing anthems. Recorded and produced by the 90 million+ album-selling legend, Michael Wagener (Metallica, Skid Row, Extreme, etc.), the album is a loud proclamation of a new artist that is not to be missed in 2021 and beyond.
