One of the world’s fastest-growing independent record labels, the Australian /Los Angeles based Golden Robot Records, kicked off 2019 in spectacular fashion signing guitar legends, John Sykes, former Guns N Roses axeman, Gilby Clarke progressive rock icons King’s X, hard rock legends Skid Row and Alt-Rock newcomers, Trope.
They then announced three new labels, the indie-focused Bread and Butter Records, home of LA indie darlings, Valley Queen, the new home of punk and hardcore, Riot Records, featuring
The Kids, Under The Influence and Shit Tinnies and also the Aussie R&B and Hip Hop label, Scratches Records.
The label also added a slew of killer new acts to their rosters including Silverthorne, Empty Trail, Palm Ghosts and many more. However as the year forges on, the expansion does not stop there with Golden Robot Records announcing a host of new signings!
Northern Ireland’s finest rockers, The Answer are the latest international act to join the GRR roster. Keeping the beacon of rock music well and truly alight, The Answer has consistently delivered commercial and critically acclaimed albums. They have toured the world extensively, proving themselves to be an incendiary live act – spending almost two years as main support to AC/DC and playing to over 2 million people, performing festivals across the globe and also supporting the likes of The Rolling Stones, Whitesnake and Wolfmother as well as countless headline tours. The Answer will return in 2020 with a killer new album!
With the just-announced 30th Anniversary of their iconic Battlesick album, One of Australia’s most beloved and respected bands of the hardcore and punk scenes, The Mark Of Cain has just announced a huge national tour that will see them play to over 7000 life long fans. Golden Robot Records is proud to announce a very special Vinyl reissue of the album featuring some very cool and exclusive bonus merch items.
Melbourne rockers Zenith Moon are the pinnacle of the vintage rock resurgence. The love child of Led Zeppelin, the Baby Animals and Aretha Franklin, Zenith Moon are classic rock and blues with a seriously sassy frontwoman in the shape of Kahli Rose. With hypnotic vocals out the front, a pounding rhythm section and face-melting guitar moves, this band are as thrilling live as you think they are.
Perfect amounts of grit, splendour and soul combine to create the unforgettable, alluring and epic sound of The Crookeds. After a string of sold-out shows, their reputation as one of Melbourne’s best live bands is growing fast, proving they are a rock ‘n’ roll force to be reckoned with.
Canadian rockers, The Jailbirds mesh grunge and glamour with classic rock that evokes the heaviness of Sabbath and Purple while soaring on harmonies akin to Alter Bridge. With massive media support from North American press upon the release of their debut EP, The Jailbirds are drawing attention not seen in the vintage rock world for some time.
The latest addition to GRGE’s Bread & Butter Records is LA’s, Bone Acre.
Emotionally charged and ruthless, Bone Acre have their feet firmly planted in Desert Rock but they are so much more than another sludgy riff machine. Kevin Bronson of Buzzbands put it best, “Bone Acre makes psych-rock that moves like a grass fire, whipped by the winds of Caroline Heerwagen’s intensely personal lyrics and fed by her smouldering vocals.” Evoking the endless Californian desert landscape that cries of freedom while simultaneously singing songs of heartbreak and wisdom, Bone Acre make you reflect, as well as groove.
