AT THE MOMENT PREMIERE THE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “NO STRAIGHT LINE” 66

Having first come to public attention back in 1995 with his band The Skastafarians who won Conan O’Brien’s 10th Annual College Band Search, and then turning his attention to creating and sharing heartfelt power-pop with The Inevitable Breakups who split in 2007, Daniel Stampfel has always had a close affiliation to music. After spending a few years away from the scene, he returned in 2012 under the name At The Moment, and released the Monte Carlo EP.

The three-track collection saw a new chapter in Stampfel’s musical legacy established, one which would lead him to turn his one-man show into a full band, recruiting Dan Van Epp on guitar, Matt James on drums, Turner Stough on bass and Emma DeCorsey on back-up vocals. Together, the newly-formed group delighted music fans with ragged and stripped down-pop rock, earning themselves a growing fan-base across the country in the process.

Now, in preparation and as a tease for the release new album In For A Ride on June 23rd, Thisisthelatest are delighted to premiere the video for At The Moment’s new single “No Straight Line” which you can check out below.

Asked about the concept behind the video, Dan says:

“When trying to think of ideas for the video I wanted something that utilized the whole band.  It’s a rock n’ roll song and it just made sense to have footage of us performing.  I also thought it would be really neat to play out the verses in animation.  I felt the animation could tell the story of the verses better than live action, particularly the 3rd verse in which flying was involved.  I was able to get Bill Moldt to do the animation. Bill had worked with my friend Steve Schiltz who produced At The Moment’s prior release Monte Carlo EP.   Bill was great.  He has a wonderful way of telling a story in a thoughtful and nuanced way.  He really picks up on the small details, which I like. 

For the live action filming/editing we were able to get filmmaker, Ryan McGilloway.  Ryan is such a pleasure to work with.  He’s got a positive and energetic attitude, but I was particularly drawn to his cinematography.  I really like the way he films people both visually and aesthetically in a way that you connect with the subject.  Bill and Ryan both did an amazing job of bringing this video to life, and I was really fortunate to work with them.”

We are so pleased to announce the 2017 winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice and British Breakthrough awards Rag’n’Bone Man will be performing live at this year’s award ceremony on 21 February. He will join an already exceptional line-up which so far includes Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Sam Smith and Stormzy.

In the last year, Rag’n’Bone Man has broken the record for fastest-selling UK male debut of the decade with his 3x Platinum No. 1 album  ‘Human’ which has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide.

Rag’n’Bone Man said: “Jheez! 2017 has flown by super quick. Its pretty mental to think that I bagged two awards at The BRITs last year and now I’m heading back to perform. I’m looking forward to being a part of the celebration with everyone. It’s going to be a good one for sure!”

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Rory epitomises how dreams can come true. He has had the most amazing 12 months and I’m so delighted to see him back where it all started.”

The 38th BRIT Awards will be hosted by Jack Whitehall at The O2, London and broadcast live on ITV. We can’t wait for Rag’n’Bone Man to bring his talent to the stage.

The nominations for the 2018 BRIT Awards will be revealed at ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ on Saturday 13 January. The show broadcast live on ITV will be hosted by Emma Willis and includes live performances from Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith, Liam Payne and Paloma Faith.

FOO FIGHTERS CONFIRMED FOR BRIT AWARDS 2018 24

We are so delighted to announce that four-time BRIT winners and one of the world’s most successful bands Foo Fighters will perform on The BRITs stage for the first time on 21 February.

The international superstars will deliver one of their legendary live performances alongside performances from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Dua Lipa.

Foo Fighters have sold more than 25 million records and sold out countless world tours. The band’s acclaimed ninth studio album ‘Concrete and Gold’ was their fourth to hit No.1 in the UK charts on release in September, topping the charts in more than a dozen countries.

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury – which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever – will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world. Quite remarkably they have never performed at The BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”

With four BRIT Awards under their belt winning International Album in 2008 and International Group in 2008, 2012 and 2015 we can’t wait for Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee to bring the incredible Foo Fighters energy to The BRITs stage.
