Black Veil Brides / Pulse Clients

In its review of the fourth studio album by Black Veil Brides, Alternative Press said it “may very well be the flashpoint to make grizzled rock fans look forward to what’s ahead, while curing younger listeners of their blank slate worldview.” Pulse clients Tommy English and Josh Moran co-wrote two songs together on the album, and English co-wrote two additional tracks. The Black Veil Brides LP is the follow up to the band’s Billboard Top 10 debut album Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones. It is the second time Pulse clients have collaborated with Black Veil Brides, as Josh Abraham produced the band’s second LP Set The World on Fire, which was also mixed and engineered by Ryan Williams

Big Data / Oliver – Remix EP

We were first introduced to Big Data’s “Dangerous feat. Joywave” last October with the release of the 1.0 EP. Since then, the track has been streamed millions of times on Soundcloud and YouTube, and been remixed by a number of up-and-coming artists. The second EP of remixes titled 1.6 features Oliver’s take on the track, which Less Than 3 describes as “a bold remix with bass-driven beats and groovy chord productions on space-age synths, which achieves a level only attainable by Oliver.” Having just celebrated the release of their Light Years Away EP, Oliver announced a series of Fall tour dates, and has hinted about dropping an unreleased song next month
