Review – Ghost Hounds, Roses are Black

It happens. Every once in a while it happens. When it does, it’s an amazing feeling. In this case I’m simply talking about a band, or a particular song, that takes you back and brings the life out of today all at once. You just feel good and dive into...

Wrapping Up Dirty Honey, Alter Bridge, Skillet Tour

While we’ve been playing Dirty Honey, When I’m Gone, pretty much since it released, I’ve not had a chance to dig deeper. Seeing them live just didn't present itself yet. All that changed last Sunday (10/20/19) when they opened up for Alter Bridge and Skillet at the legendary Bomb Factory...

I went into this movie knowing fully well that The Joker is not the "typical comic book movie" Joaquin Phoenix goes all in with any role that he is set to play but I still tempered my expectations. Reasons for low expectations? 1. DC has put out bust after bust...

Singles Only – Kali Ra – “Breathless”

Not to take a swipe at the other contributors of this site, but I like to think I'm the black sheep of the black sheep of Renegade Radio. Many of my interests are of the "niche;" if Iceberg is going to hand me the aux cord after playing some Metallica,...

The Atom Age – Cry ‘Til You Die review

  If it's not broke, don't fix it. Many bands are content with treading familiar waters. This sound sells well. This is your sing along. Here's a slower variant of the songs you heard before. Rinse, repeat, send it to the presses. Punk rock is no stranger to this formula....

Memories as the Curtain Closes

When I heard Curtain Club was closing, I’m not quite sure how it hit me. I loved the club and they were always great to work with on promotions of any kind we could think of here at Renegade Radio. Over time believe me, we've thought of a lot of...

Lava Cantina, The Colony, TX June 8th 2019 According to legend, back in 1994 Bowling for Soup was formed one evening over a few too many Zimas.  While most people forget things they do, say, or promise after having too many malt beverages (or at least wish they could), fortunately...

Review: Wake Up Hate – Deep Sleep

Wake Up Hate came to me by way of Tag Publicity and the amazing artists they represent. In going through some requests for airplay usually a few will stick out and make me hit “rewind” a few times. I got the whole release of Deep Sleep for review so in...

Recently I caught up with Ryan Keifer and Nate Gillis of Palestine Based Blacktop Mojo. We talked about their upcoming release Under the Sun (Out 9/13/19 – preorder at blacktopmojo.com) and various aspects of putting it together in the studio.

Dirty Honey, Alter Bridge and Skillet Wrap Up Fall 2019 Tour

The Bomb Factory - Dallas

While a rather short set of tour dates lasting just over a month, this trio of bands brought a stellar performance that will go down as one of the most energetic tours of 2019. Thankful for my photopass, I wanted to share some of the better shots here and give a bad ass show the credit and attention it deserves!

Caught out on the road as Lullwater wraps up their tour with Blacktop Mojo, Roy “Ray” Beatty reviews the music of Lullwater. We start with their self-titled release in 2013 and talk about the growth and evolution they found moving into 2015’s Revival and then their 2019 release VooDoo (reviewed here on Renegade earlier this year) and how their sound has changed over the years.
