Paul “HR” Hudson is best known as the front man of the iconic punk band Bad Brains, formed in 1979. With unprecedented speed and precision, Bad Brains took the Washington, DC music scene by storm and quickly became the most influential band in American punk history, breaking down cultural barriers and creating emotionally charged music centered on the message of maintaining a positive mental attitude (PMA). This concept of PMA continues to inspire HR’s fans.

Early in his career, HR became interested in reggae and the Rastafarian movement. These pursuits transformed him, and he began to focus more on the spiritual nature of reggae rather than the fast lifestyle of the punk scene. In 1984, HR formed his reggae-rock band Human Rights, which has performed and recorded in various incarnations for more than three decades. The current incarnation has a refined yet organic energy that hasn’t been felt since the early days of Human Rights.

HR’s music speaks to the youth of today encouraging them to practice gratitude, to never give up on their dreams, and to live in unity. His new solo album, “Give Thanks” will be released Nov 29th via Hardline Entertainment.

“I like go-go music and soul and anything that really moves. I first heard Amerie’s “1 Thing” in 2005, when it was released. Fucking infectious man, the way that groove keeps rolling, and she’s such a great vocalist. The lyrics were your basic relationship trip but then it hit me, this isn’t just a song about some dude, these lyrics read like a song to a system or a government that’d been up to no good. When she sang, “memories keep ringing bells” I was thinking of the state of our union today, the turmoil in our society, and where we’d been before—I was musing on our involvement in the Middle East, Latin America, Vietnam. I was thinking about the dirty deeds that this nation had been up to and then she sang, “why don’t you just admit it” and I realized that no one in power, not in this country, was ever gonna admit that we were wrong.”

About Hoist The Colors

A city like Los Angeles, where so many musicians are trying to be the “Next Big Thing,” can chew bands up and spit them out.

Hoist The Colors has navigated the rough waters of this city they call home by staying true to themselves, creating music they feel passionate about while accepting the inevitable evolution of their lives and their art.

Change is something the members of Hoist The Colors fully embrace. This idea rings true with their newest effort, entitled “Mourners”, their second release on Hardline Entertainment. And while the five piece are proud of where they are, they are even more excited about what lies ahead.

“We started in my living room”, explains singer and mandolin player Joshua Linden, “This band was never meant to do much more then play a few pubs and get some free drinks. But once we started playing around LA, we developed a following as well as a love for what we were doing.”

With the spark lit and a unique take on folk-influenced punk, the band released their first full length themselves, entitled Second City”.  A year later, they found themselves back in the studio, this time signed to independent Hermosa Beach label Hardline Entertainment and recording their second LP, Miles to Go Before We Sleep”. Artistically, this proved to be a turning point for the band, as they had finally found their sound, blending a mix of Americana and Irish folk, while leaning heavily on their punk rock roots.

Soon after the album’s release, the band hit the road, playing up and down the west coast and spending a month back east, sharing the stage with acts ranging from Death By Stereo to Old Man Markley, and once again proving they could play with any band from any genre of music.

Two years after Miles to Go Before We Sleep”, the band began writing for a new album. Major obstacles hit the band, but with the upcoming release of “Mourners”, Hoist The Colors is feeling stronger and more confident than ever. “Mourners” is the most honest music the band has ever written, as the sound is solidified by soulful melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and a heavy dose of twang.

“I think on “Mourners”, we focused hard on spotlighting what we do best,” states lead guitarist Jeff Murphy. “None of us claim to be virtuoso musicians. We don’t have a gimmick or an over the top stage personas. But we can write a song. And we take songwriting extremely seriously.”

Although darker than the first two albums, ultimately “Mourners” offers hope and a message that some things must not be given up, especially one’s passion for the things that make life worth living. “Mourners”  is available for pre sale now and will be available for purchase on September 24th 2016 on iTunes and at, and streaming on Spotify and Rhapsody.

Jeff Murphy – Lead Guitar

One take, one band, one record.”
Buddy Darling-
About The Darlings

The Darlings are four west coast rock n rollers with a vintage modern attack and down home southern roots. Formed in 2005 by Buddy Darling (singer/guitar) and Chris Kranes (bass) in Redondo Beach CA.

The Darlings continue to respectfully nod to their deep retro-fittings, but effortlessly draw their listeners into uncharted territory; the aromatic essence of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Blues, Punk and Americana that seeps from their sound, seems to have been simmering in a crock-pot full of Black Sabbath’s insidious darkness and Chuck Berry’s dexterous swagger.

“For me it’s a great honor to release these early recordings. These tracks were the band’s first recordings in a professional studio. I remember the day we got the test pressing and went to my print shop and put it on my record player. The hair on my arms stood up as I heard the songs come alive on wax. It was surreal. We then printed the covers, took apart another EP cover to use as a template and we all started cutting, folding and gluing our share. From the forming of Pennywise, to building carpet cave practice spots, to going to numerous backyard parties and shows, printing flyers and tees to think that this band might actually go somewhere was not only very special to myself and the band, but to all of us in the South Bay. The “ A Word From The Wise” EP was the release that caught the attention of Brett Gurewitz which led to the band’s signing to his now Iconic punk label Epitaph Records. I’ve been lucky enough to have seen much of the world with these guys and have met a ton of great people and have endless stories because of this band. My involvement with them fueled the starting of my Management Company and Record Label. People like Mark and Brett who had the vision and the balls to take chances on young bands has been a great influence and inspiration to me. I can’t wait to get this LP out!”

“I’ve always felt the record was great but at the time I thought “A Word From The Wise” would be the only record I’d ever release.  For me, it opened the door to so much more.  It was the genesis of Theologian Records leading to numerous releases from local to international bands, to co-owning a recording studio with Fletcher, Byron and Justin (98 Mute),  as well as a couple more Pennywise releases!  Has it really been over a quarter of a century since that first record?  I’m stoked the band is going just as strong as ever and can’t thank Pennywise enough for sticking with me all these years. It’s a pleasure to be releasing these early Pennywise recordings on one vinyl LP with Ken from Hardline Entertainment who has been there from the start.”

 “To my brother, Jason, these first real Pennywise recordings were the nucleus and beginning of a brand new era in his life. When these two EPs were being glued together by all of us in our kitchens, he felt such an accomplishment and felt like Pennywise could actually break out of the South bay and do some good in the world. This was the first time he was ever in an actual recording studio and it gave him such joy and also some pride. For him (and for me) to be able to see his words that he wrote in his room become actual songs and then those songs being actually recorded and put on vinyl was just unreal. He dreamed of that since the first time he heard Black Flag, Youth Brigade, Blitz, etc…when he was a kid and now it was actually happening thanks to Marc Theodore. I personally remember helping to glue all of those EPs sleeves together and it was just unreal and so cool to be a part of.”

Dropping everything you’re doing and starting from scratch is not an easy task especially when you’re in your mid 30’s.

After celebrating a successful 20 years of existence show with punk band Useless ID (Fat Wreck Chords) to a hometown crowd in Israel it was time to take a break.

Yotam set out to the States for some soul searching, the result: “California Sounds”.

After living in his car and random houses all over the States for the past 6 months in 2015, around 70 shows in with the likes of Frank Turner, Chad Price, The Ataris, Laura Jane Grace, etc…

Yotam stopped by Bob Hoag’s Flying Blanket Studios (Built to Spill, Ataris) which consists of mostly analog gear and guitars from the 1950’s, armed with 10 brand new songs and going for a vibe where you enter a studio and leave a day later with an album done like in in the early years of Bob Dylan.

“Nobody does this anymore, everyone is so caught up in sounding perfect and auto tune and it just kills character” he says, then adds “Bob was amazing, we did 1-2 takes of each song, making very quick decisions”

All live with some overdubs here and there, the album was mixed the next day and mastered a month later by Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room while Yotam passed by through Colorado for a show.

The album is more stripped down in sound and more punk in spirit than it’s predecessor “Distant Lover” which was released on Hardline Entertainment 3 years ago to be exact, as the name is stripped down as well. “Dropping my last name just felt natural after playing a show at Hermosa Beach opening for label mates The Bunny Gang featuring Nathen Maxwell of Flogging Molly, I looked at the stage times and it said Yotam 8:00-8:30 which just seemed more fitted for this album” says Yotam and adds “People just can’t remember my last name”, even Fat Mike whom I’ve known for years asked me one day “Dude, how do you say your last name again?”

Trying to catch the madness of tour life while it was happening “California Sounds” was recorded on May 4th between two US tours. It tells the story of questions that appear as we get older but aren’t ready yet to cross the line into adulthood like opener “Days of Living” , other themes dealing with new people entering our lives as others leave “Tony Sly”, “Grandfather” yet, an album is never complete without the ultimate break up song “Silver and Gold” or a lost love that didn’t come to fruition “Catastrophe” and pushing his limits to write songs on the road and completing them during drives “California Sounds”, “Young Man Bones”

“The comfort zone is the enemy” adds Yotam.

“California Sounds” is OUT NOW via Hardline Entertainment. Catch Yotam on tour in Europe and the US starting in November.
