Lifehouse: Greatest Hits

Album will include 18 tracks, featuring chart-topping "Hanging by a Moment" and "You and Me," as band sets to embark on U.S. tour with Switchfoot in July

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Multi-platinum award-winning rock band Lifehouse will release their first hits compilation, Lifehouse: Greatest Hits, on CD and all digital retailers July 14. The 18-track selection will include a multitude of their chart-topping hits, including “You and Me,” “First Time”, “Halfway Gone,” “Hurricane” and "Hanging by a Moment," which was the most played radio track of 2001. CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER.

To mark the release, Lifehouse, which includes Jason Wade (lead vocals, guitar), Bryce Soderberg (bass, vocals) and Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr. (drums, percussion), will co-headline a U.S. tour with Switchfoot, starting July 23 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO, and wrapping September 10 at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco after a show on September 9 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.
Lifehouse is also scheduled to perform on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Midway in San Diego on May 27 as part of the seventh annual Freedom Concert, with proceeds donated to three military beneficiaries, STEP (Support the Enlisted Project), United Through Reading and Navy SEAL Foundation. Tour dates are listed below.

Lifehouse was formed in Los Angeles by singer/songwriter/guitarist Jason Wade, bassist Bryce Soderberg and drummer Rick Woolstenhulme Jr. as Blyss in 1999, attracting the attention of producer Jude Cole and eventually, veteran A&R executive Michael Ostin, who signed the band to DreamWorks for their 2000 debut, No Name Face, which produced “Hanging by a Moment,” a #1 Modern Rock hit which crossed over to become Top 40’s Most Played Song, peaking at #2 on the Hot 100.
Since 2000, Lifehouse have released seven albums that have cumulatively sold 15 million around the world.
“Hanging by a Moment,” (#2 Hot 100, #2 Pop Songs), “Sick Cycle Carousel,” “Breathing” and “Everything” all come from the band’s debut album No Name Face, which peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200, and has since gone on to sell more than four million copies worldwide, almost three million in the U.S.
“Spin” and “Take Me Away” are taken from the band’s second album, 2002’s Stanley Climbfall, while the eponymous 2005 album produced the dual chart-topping Top 5 smash ballad “You and Me” (#1 at both Adult Top 40 and Adult Contemporary, #5 Hot 100, #4 Top 40, #4 Pop Songs) and “Blind.” The album itself debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 and was eventually certified platinum.

Who We Are, released in 2007, contributes the multi-format hits “First Time” (#3 Adult Top 40, #17 Adult Contemporary, #16 Mainstream Top 40), “Whatever It Takes” (#3 Adult Top 40, #10 Adult Contemporary), and the radio version of “Broken” (#7 Adult Top 40). Their collaboration with Kevin Rudolf, “Halfway Gone” (#2 Adult Top 40, #12 Adult Contemporary,) “Falling In,” “All In” (#6 Adult Top 40), “From Where You Are” and “It Is What It Is” are all from the band’s fifth studio album, Smoke & Mirrors, originally released in 2010.

“Between the Raindrops,” their collaboration with British singer Natasha Bedingfield, was the lead single from their sixth studio album, 2012’s Almeria, scoring on three separate Billboard charts (#21 Adult Pop Songs, #27 Adult Alternative Songs, #79 Hot 100). The compilation’s final track, “Hurricane,” is from the band’s 2015 indie Ironworks Music release, Out of the Wasteland, which went to #30 on the Hot Adult chart and #31 at Adult Pop Songs.

Lifehouse’s music has always been radio-friendly, but the band’s success is as much for lead singer/guitarist Jason Wade’s “sonorous” vocals and spiritual songwriting as it is for the band’s well-honed cohesion as performers. As he once explained about his creative process: “I’m comfortable being myself. The songs I’ve written that have connected to the most people have occurred when I’m not worrying about how everyone will react. I’m writing from an honest place, alone in my room not thinking about who’s going to hear it, what they’re going to think or how they’re going to interpret it. The lyrics can’t be contrived. They have to hit you right in the heart.” Lifehouse: Greatest Hits does just that.

Richmond, Virginia-based rockers Red Reign specialize in a sound that recalls vintage rock and metal acts of the mid to late ‘80s, as evidenced by their just-released self-titled EP, which features the single “Not That Way.” So it will undoubtedly be a perfect fit when the group (which features singer/guitarist Carlton “Bubba” McMichael, guitarist Stevie Shred, bassist Larry Moore, an drummer Sammy Lee) opens a show on June 23rd with Quiet Riot, and three shows from August 3rd-5th with Tesla. 
WOW, we are so excited to join Quiet Riot for a show in Lynchburg, Virginia,” says Sammy Lee. “Seeing Frankie Banali for the 1st time was unbelievable to me as a drummer. I loved his booming sound and will now get to see and hear it up close and personal. And Red Reign is extremely excited to be supporting Tesla, one of the premier hard rock bands out today. I remember watching Tesla's videos all over MTV back in the day and now we get to share the same stage with is surreal.” 
The self-titled EP, was overseen by Grammy-nominated producer, David Ivory (Halestorm, Roots, Silvertide). "After signing with Chipster PR, we were directed to David Ivory, to help with the rewriting and rearrangement of songs for our upcoming CD," explains Sammy. "David made the songs flow better rhythmically and brought in fresh ideas, to build on the original foundation of the songs. He also brought a different vision of how the songs were played, to put the band in more of a mainstream direction." The EP can be purchased here:
One of the EP’s standout tracks is the “Not That Way” (which will be performed at the upcoming show), which the band’s McMichael describes as “one of those songs that is about a love gone bad and then the girl realizes she made a mistake in our relationship and wants to get back into the same relationship she poisoned. But the guy has gotten over her and moved on.” 
A lyric video for the track can be viewed here:
Other tracks include “Chains” (“About the feelings of being held back and looking for that escape”), “Toxic” (“The feeling of hopelessness in a relationship”), “Red Reign” (“The anger side of a relationship”), and “What is Love For” (“About you pouring yourself into a relationship, knowing it’s not going to go far”).
And in August, Red Reign will undoubtedly win over many new fans - when they join forces with Tesla!
Upcoming RED REIGN tour dates:
June 23rd Phase 2 in Lynchburg, VA  [WITH QUIET RIOT]
August 3rd Embassy Theatre in Ft Wayne, IN  [WITH TESLA]

From Great White: COMING JUNE 2

35 years ago, Great White recorded their first album with legendary producer, Michael Wagener.  Since then, Grammy nominated, Great White has sold over 10 million albums, selling out arenas and concert venues world-wide! And Wagener didn’t do too bad for himself either.  Since engineering and producing Great White’s very first LP 35 years ago, he went on to produce such infamous artists as Metallica, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osborne, Skid Row and many others, totaling over 98 million albums sold.

This past January, Great White’s musical  journey came full circle as they joined Wagener once again in his Nashville Tennessee studio, known as WireWorld, where they recorded their latest album, appropriately titled, Full Circle.  And for the first time, fans around the world will be able to step inside the studio and get behind the scenes with Michael Wagener and Great White with the “Making of Full Circle” DVD that will be included with every Full Circle CD purchased.

Keep checking back to for updates on the new album and new shows added to the tour!  Also, we will be posting snippets from behind the scenes in the studio over the next month on FaceBook and Twitter!
