As Day 3 of ShipRocked dawned, it would serve as the last day of invading the beautiful, private Bahamian island so rockers were up early to take full advantage of the exotic surroundings one last time. The music didn’t kick off until early afternoon allowing fans to catch up on some much needed sleep, work on their tans and re-energize for another day of non-stop rock 'n' roll revelry.
With all new digs aboard their new home on the glorious Norwegian Pearl, the 2014 ShipRocked cruise set sail on Jan. 25 for a four-day, nonstop rock 'n' roll extravaganza. Offering up six on-board stages and a private Bahamas island beach stage, the excursion lived up to all expectations of rocking the high seas.
A good chunk of the music community will find themselves in Austin, Texas, next week for the South by Southwest music conference and that includes the artists celebrating Wind-up Records' 15th anniversary. UK upstarts Young Guns and hard rocking Oklahoma outfit Aranda are among the acts representing Wind-up while at SXSW.
Oklahoma-based rockers Aranda unleashed their latest full-length album, ‘Stop the World,’ earlier this year. After touring with bands like Theory of a Deadman and Hinder and playing major summer fests, the guys are as busy as ever after inking a deal with Wind-up Records. Now, Aranda are premiering behind-the-scenes footage from their recent photo shoot exclusively on Loudwire (watch below).
