Bands that are bringing Rock ‘N’ Roll back to life

 

Is Rock ‘N’ Roll dead? We beg to differ! Rock ‘N’ Roll is not going anywhere, not atleast for another century. It’s a way of life. It’s revolutionary. It’s Inspiring. It’s a Must-have in every music lover’s life and it’s nowhere even close to entering the grave, nor ever will.

With the demise of legends like Kurt Cobain, David Bowie, and George Martin in 2016, a lot of people started questioning the future of Rock Music. On top of it, the increasing popularity of pop bands like The Chainsmokers, Maroon 5, Twenty One Pilots and other independent pop artists of the era (2016 pop charts were ruled by Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Drake), core rock lovers have started to feel that Rock has finally come of age. But how true does this trepidation stands is still a moot point.  

You’d be thinking if rock music is everlasting then where are the cool revolutionary bands like we had back in the day? I don’t see them anymore! I don’t feel inspired with new age lyrics, or for that matter, their music!

Let’s say we are a bit proactive in our research and we know all the questions that you’d be throwing at us for daring to make this statement. So we did a bit of scouting, yup, Google Scouting was phase one that moved to Youtube and finally the official websites, and found 5 Rock bands of today that are doing everything possible to keep the wave alive.

Here are top bands by the millennials, for the millennials that show why hard rock may be getting good again. Read through and you might just find another one to add to your playlist.

Royal Blood

If there’s any British band that promises the return of guitar-led rock, it’s the Royal Blood. Lead by the rock duo, Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher, this is the most talked about band in Britain. Royal blood took less than a year to become the country’s biggest new rock band. Listen to Royal Blood songs and you’ll be startled with the making of brilliantly inscrutable sounds that are more enthralling than any other standard-issue four-piece rock bands.

The band was nominated for the BBC’s annual event ‘Sound Of’ poll, and it turned out that they were the only rock band nominated of the twelve finalists. So far, the band’s thrilling racket has produced an eponymous album, “Royal Blood” that stormed to number one in August, 2015 and owns the fastest-selling rock record since Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds back in 2011.

Mothers

Brooklyn based band, Mother was formed in 2013 by Jimmy, Penn, Simon and Darren. Their first ever song uploaded on Sound Cloud “Easy” became an instant hit and within three days of the release the band was playing their first real gig at the Echo in Los Angeles. Until this time, they didn’t have any PR. Neon Gold stepped in to write about their new song “Easy” on their blog, which was soon followed by online interview with Puff Daddy. The combination of guitarist Mike Gowen, a bassist Johnny Bass and frontman Nick Fargo, comes together to form a hard-rock powerhouse arraying sharp blue undertones.

Royal Thunder

royal-thunder-band

Atlanta based Royal Thunder rock band has emerged as one of the greatest bands in the recent Rock N Roll eco-system. Formed by guitarist Josh Weaver in 2004, Royal Thunder zaps a little bit of psych-tinged, and a little bit bluesy sound that’s nothing like anyone in particular. Their style of hard rock is primarily influenced from classic rock with elements of progressive rock and psychedelic rock that create unique blend of sounds.

Meat Wave

When it comes to discussing Rock bands of the millennium, Meat Waves often pops out as a snarling viewpoint that takes a tiny vignette on the modern world. Formed in 2011 by the trio guitarist and vocalist Chris Sutter, bassist Joe Gac, the drummist Ryan Wizniak, their debut self-titled full-length album was originally released via Bandcamp within an year of coming together.
