Die Another Day premiere video FEAR THE FUTURE via NewFuryMedia


Debut EP "Wild Fire" Out April 10

Die Another Day is one of Calgary, Canada’s freshest bands.

Conceived in the spring of 2019 with a variety of influences, the quartet expands into multiple genres, getting fans excited to embrace different styles of music.

Previously releasing their first single and title track off their forthcoming debut EP "Wild Fire," due out on April 10, the quintet is now ready to unleash the next single entitled “Fear The Future,” coincidentally timed with the current global situation of Covid 19.

Watch the video for “Fear The Future” via its exclusive premiere on NewFuryMedia HERE.
The band said, "Very aggressive, and hard-hitting from start to finish, the style of chords that were chosen in the verse of the track really express the struggle that we talk about in the lyrics, whereas the more resolved sound and feeling through the chorus really ties it together perfectly. We think we definitely put Jared our vocalist through hell the first week or so of him having to both learn the words as well as learn how to get enough air to scream them at the same time."
Die Another Day brings a high energy stage show that’s guaranteed to get people off their feet and moving along to the music.

From making the crowd become a part of the songs they perform, to diving right in and making themselves a part of the action that’s taking place within the audience, the band isn’t afraid of giving every ounce energy to have a good time with every person in the room.

That vitality and passion are showcased in their new EP 'Wildfire' that fans of melodic, heavy, upbeat bangers in the vein of metalcore and pop-punk will enjoy and have no issues putting Die Another Day on repeat.
Bassist Tyler Johansen said, “We wanted to share with the world our more aggressive hard-hitting side of our music. This is an EP that means the world to us as it touches on so many personal notes as well as being our first full outing as a band so we really wanted to come out swinging with this one. It’s exciting to bring more than a single out to share with everyone; we cannot wait to show you all what months of practicing, writing, and recording is going to look and sound like.”
Lyric video “Wildfire” HERE.

Good Deed Entertainment partners with Kino Marquee for Virtual Theatrical Exhibition of EXTRA ORDINARY on April 3


Cranked Up Films, the genre-leaning arm of Good Deed Entertainment, announced that they have partnered with Kino Lorber to continue with the theatrical expansion of supernatural comedy “EXTRA ORDINARY” via the arthouse distributor’s newly launched Kino Marquee Virtual Theatrical Exhibition platform.

“Extra Ordinary,” which started its theatrical launch in non-exclusive partnership with Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas, to much critical and audience fanfare, can now reach audiences across the US in the comfort of their homes while still supporting local cinemas beginning April 3.

Tickets can be purchased through the continually expanding list of 150+ theatrical partner sites, including newly announced, Alamo Drafthouse and Laemmle Theater chains.

“EXTRA ORDINARY,” which has been building buzz as an up-and-coming cult classic, follows Rose (Maeve Higgins), a sweet small-town Irish driving instructor, who is gifted with supernatural abilities.

Rose tries to ignore the constant spirit-related requests, but when Christian Winter (Will Forte), a washed up rock star who has made a pact with the devil for a return to greatness, puts a spell on a local teenager, her terrified father, Martin Martin (Barry Ward) asks Rose to help save his daughter.

Rose has to overcome the fear of her supernatural gift and work with Martin to save the girl, get the guy, and be home in time for a light snack.

Filmed on location in Ireland, the debut feature from co-writers and directors Mike Ahern & Enda Loughman, initially opened in theaters on March 6.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Kino Lorber in this exciting new initiative which supports Independent Cinemas while also taking advantage of new, forward-thinking distribution models. In this difficult time, it’s important to us to be able to support local businesses while also making independent content readily available to audiences while they’re at home,”Scott Donley, CEO and Founder of Good Deed Entertainment, said.
“In extraordinary times what a pleasure to discover a cinematic treat that earns that same name with guffaws. This welcome association with Good Deed furthers the mission of Kino Marquee as a catalyst to keep worthy films on virtual screens, with revenue boost to independent cinemas and an emotional boost for national audiences in dire need of some Extra Ordinary laughs,” Richard Lorber, Kino Lorber’s CEO, said.
The film stars comic actress Maeve Higgins, an Irish comedian who is contributing writer for The New York Times who has done stand-up all around the world. Her latest book “MAEVE IN AMERICA” was published by Penguin in 2018. Her podcasts include “MAEVE IN AMERICA: IMMIGRATION IRL,” and “MOTHERS OF INVENTION” and also hosts the “MY BEST BREAK-UP” podcast on “HELLO SUNSHINE,” the American media company founded by Reese Witherspoon.

The film co-stars Barry Ward as Martin Martin. Barry recently appeared in the recurring role of Sawyer in “BRITANNIA,” a new television series for Sky. Last year he also appeared in “SAVE ME” (Sky TV) opposite Lennie James and in Netflix’s highly successful series “THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD.” Ward is currently appearing in the co-leading role (opposite Tom Vaughan Lawlor) in “MAZE,” written and directed by Stephen Burke which is now available on Netflix.

The film also stars notable comedic actors Will Forte (THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, NEBRASKA) and Claudia O’Doherty (TRAINWRECK, LOVE, INSIDE AMY SCHUMER).

“EXTRA ORDINARY” is produced by Katie Holly (CITADEL, LOVE & FRIENDSHIP), Yvonne Donohoe (STRIKING OUT), Mary McCarthy (MR FOLEY, SIX SHOOTER) and Ailish Bracken (THE QUEEN OF IRELAND, A MOTHER BRINGS HER SON TO BE SHOT).

The film is produced by Blinder Films, in co-production with Umedia, and financed by Screen Ireland, UMedia and Inevitable Pictures.

Julia Ormond and Ben Barnes star in the new BBC One’s domestic noir GOLD DIGGER premiering on Acorn TV May 4


Sparks fly as Acorn TV’s new, electric relationship thriller “GOLD DIGGER” stars Emmy-winning actress Julia Ormond (Mad Men, Sabrina, Legends of the Fall and the upcoming The Walking Dead: World Beyond), as a conflicted 60-year-old woman who finds a new lease in life when she falls in love with a mysterious, much younger man (Ben Barnes, Westworld, Chronicles of Narnia).

Mother first, wife second, woman last — Julia Day (Ormond) has spent her whole life putting the needs of others before herself, but now she feels she’s found a new beginning with Benjamin Greene (Barnes), a man 25 years her junior.

The effect of their unconventional relationship on her already-damaged, dysfunctional family and the secrets of their past are revealed — has Julia finally found the happiness she's always deserved, or is Benjamin really after her money?

The series also stars Alex Jennings (The Crown) as Julia's ex-husband Ted, and Julia McKenzie (Agatha Christie's Marple) as Ted's mother, Hazel.

Originally aired on BBC One in November 2019, “GOLD DIGGER” will premiere exclusively in the U.S. on Acorn TV on May 4, with a weekly two-episode block through May 18.

Called a “glorious streaming service… an essential must-have” (The Hollywood Reporter), AMC Networks’ Acorn TV is North America’s leading streamer focused on British and international television.

Written and created by Marnie Dickens (Thirteen), the six-part twisty Acorn TV Exclusive “domestic noir” drama follows Julia Day, a recently-divorced woman who’s feeling increasingly detached from her three grown-up children and not sure of her place in the world.

She considers Benjamin– a thirty-something copywriter with a shrouded past - a second chance, a companion and partner who makes her feel whole for the first time in years.

However, her children and her ex-husband are suspicious of her new lover and believe he has an ulterior motive, which leads to fierce arguments and clashes with Julia.

They even would prefer for her to remain single and a divorcee.

Meanwhile, viewers learn of a dark family secret buried for several decades - a trauma that has impacted their personalities and decisions in the present.

Their reaction to Julia’s relationship also allows them to face the demons and challenges in their own lives.

This contemporary drama was mainly filmed in Devon, complete with breathtaking vistas of its dramatic cliffs, with sequences shot in London.

Playing Julia's family is Sebastian Armesto (Poldark, Broadchurch) as the high-achieving eldest son Patrick, always trying to be an honorable man despite his own flaws; Jemima Rooper (Lost In Austen, Trauma) as Della, the middle child whose finger is permanently on the self-destruct button; and Archie Renaux (Shadow and Bone) as Leo, the baby of the family who still lives with his mother and idolizes his father.

Stand Atlantic Shares new video for DRINK TO DROWN


STAND ATLANTIC
BRING FANS TOGETHER VIA VIDEO FOR "DRINK TO DROWN"

FANS SHARE HOW THEY ARE COPING DURING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC

Stand Atlantic have released a special video for a new song called "Drink To Drown."

The band recently called for fans to share video clips showing what they were doing during quarantine and social distancing, which can now be seen here at this link: smarturl.it/drinktodrownvideo
 
During the video's premiere on YouTube, the band took time to answer fan questions during a live chat.

After working on a new album for over a year, plans have now been shifted and postponed due to the current pandemic.

With it being a very difficult and uncertain time for music, Stand Atlantic reached out to fans and opened up an honest dialogue about how we can go through this journey of uncertainty TOGETHER.

Fans from across the globe sent the band their thoughts and with the clips put together for the final video, it's clear it became a representation of the bravery of the unknown.
Lead vocalist and guitarist Bonnie Fraser said, "We're living through history right now and as scary and uncertain as this time may be, the one thing that has been so positive to see is how everyone has come together. Everyone is going through it all at once, we're looking out for each other from afar and there's something comforting about that which makes it feel like maybe this is all going to be ok. We also wanted to portray some positive aspects about the impacts of isolation. We had our fans across the world who are currently in isolation send us videos of themselves doing things they either never had time to do or have never even thought about doing, but now have the time to try them out. We hope this will spark creativity and solidarity to anybody who's watching and has been affected by COVID-19."
In February, the band released "Shh!", which fans can stream on YouTube, Spotify or Apple Music.

The song and music video for "Hate Me (Sometimes) is out now.
 
Stand Atlantic, made up of Bonnie Fraser (vocals/guitar), David Potter (guitar), and Jonno Panichi (drums), launched into the international eye following 2018's “Skinny Dipping.”

The group's blend of hard-charged rock and soaring pop melodies has earned them a home on international tours with the likes of New Found Glory, Neck Deep and State Champs - and critical accolades like a "Best International Breakthrough Band" nomination at the 2018 Heavy Music Awards and inclusion in Kerrang's highly coveted Hottest Bands of 2018.

In 2019, they toured the US on a co-headlining tour with The Faim, and toured Europe opening for The Maine.

Watch the trailer for Kevin Makely’s BADLAND


KEVIN MAKELY's indie Western “BADLAND” (Cinedigm), produced and stars Makely along side Mira Sorvino, Bruce Dern, Wes Studi, Trace Adkins, James Russo, Tony Todd and more.

Released on Netflix on March 27, the Papa Octopus Prods. presentation hit #3 on Netflix's movie chart and #7 overall amongst Netflix's massive library of offerings appealing to their 167 million subscribers.

This astounding massive audience with exceptional word-of-mouth gives new synergy to the labor of love project Makely developed, fueled and actualized.  
 
The satisfying Western is, obviously, appealing to far more than genre enthusiasts with its especially strong cast, an entertaining spin and an a solidly crafted story.

Directed by Justin Lee, Kevin Makely persuasively inhabits the lead role of 'Matthias William Breecher,' a man of few words, many bullets and lethally efficient manhunter.

With his gravelly voice, formidable stare and confidant physicality, Makely establishes his tough-guy bona fides while portraying a Pinkerton detective hired by a slave-turned-Senator (Tony Todd) to track down war criminals who fought for the Confederacy.

Indeed, throughout much of “Badland,” Makely's understated performance is an unassuming anchor for scenes with an especially strong ensemble whose colorful dialogue is peppered with memorable lines.

Singer/actor Trace Adkins portrays a grandiloquent former general who, not surprisingly, would rather not be hanged for his wartime misdeeds.

Dern and Sorvino's effective and affecting performances, are so emotionally and dramatically satisfying, they together forward the storyline via a chilling run-in with a violent land-grabber played by James Russo.

2020 Oscar honorree, Wes Studi figures into the mix as Breecher’s (Makely) not-entirely-friendly rival in the manhunting business.
 
Produced by Makely's Papa Octopus Productions (an amazing story in itself!) with partners Jennifer Ambrose and Shawn Nightingale, Badland is a Western in which te good guys actually have to pause and reload — repeatedly — to come out the other side.
