Attaboy Joins Radiate Music, Releases New Single

Pop rock band Attaboy is newest addition to Radiate Music, the unique studio/management/label fusion helmed by producer Ian Eskelin (founding member of All Star United). Along with the announcement, the band christened the new era by releasing “Waking Up.”

The Indiana-based band has made a name for themselves playing concerts and camps across the country. “Waking Up” is the first taste of an upcoming full length album. The band enlisted Doug Weier (Anberlin, We Are Leo) for the track.

Guitarist Jeff Edgel describes the song as a kind of call to action. “In a world filled with hatred and barriers attempting to separate us, the song celebrates living a life characterized by unity and love.”

With a new album coming soon, you can keep up with Attaboy by finding them on Instagram, Facebook, Spotify, and Twitter.

GoFundMe Launched To Support Matt “Mojo” Morginsky In Wake Of House Fire

The producers of the movie Pick It Up: Ska in the 90s have banded together to launch a GoFundMe campaign in support of former O.C. Supertones lead singer Matt “Mojo” Morginsky and his family, whose family home was recently lost in a house fire.

“On May 25, 2019 at 7:00 in the morning, the Morginsky family’s 100+ Year old Denver, Colorado home was struck by a sudden-and-accidental house fire, creating an immediate, total loss for the family,” according to the GoFundMe campaign page.

Fans of the band are being invited in to help out through the fundraiser.

At the time of publication, the campaign had raised over $5,000 to help the members of the family get back on their feet after losing all of their belongings due to the water and smoke damage, and the house being deemed an asbestos hazard by authorities.

Matt Morginsky is best known in these circles as the energetic lead singer of 90s Christian ska group The Orange County Supertones, which released six full length studio albums from 1996 to 2005, and a seventh, For The Glory, in 2012.  The Supertones lyrically were well known for their in-your-face theological depth.

Since then, Morginsky and his family has been serving as Lead Pastor at Grace and Peace Church in Denver, Colorado.  You can learn more about what Mojo has been up to in this new ministry role by visiting gpchurchdenver.org/about.

RED Launches RED ENTERTAINMENT Alongside New Single ‘The Evening Hate’

RED released highly anticipated single “The Evening Hate” on Friday, June 7, the first track in their new independent chapter. Their own new label served as the launching pad for the single.

“The Evening Hate” has an accompanying short film, continuing RED’s tradition of pairing intense cinematic videos with their music. The song was distributed through The Fuel Music (Thousand Foot Krutch, Lacey Sturm).

The title itself references history, using the name that soldiers on the front lines of World War I gave to relentless enemy bombing. “While we all experience or witness hate throughout life, whether it be physical, mental or emotional, we all have the ability to crawl out and rise above such a tremendous adversary, hell bent on division and destruction. Without hate, the world would never know what true love really is,” bassist Randy Armstrong explains.

The band’s independent label is built from direct fan support, allowing them full creative freedom. The result is a full-octane rock sound on “The Evening Hate” like RED fans have come to love and expect. “Now with total control, fans won’t have to wait for music to come out every two to three years!” guitarist Anthony Armstrong explained. “We can do what we want, when we want and with whomever we want in order to make the best rock music we know how.”

You can find “The Evening Hate” on Spotify and Apple Music. Be a part of RED’s new era by finding them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
