MINISTRY with Special Guest FILTER Live in Singapore
Synopsis

LAMC Productions is thrilled to welcome American Industrial Metal Juggernauts, MINISTRY, led by Al Jourgensen, along with special guests, Industrial rockers, FILTER, to Singapore on Oct 4, 2017, at Zepp @ Bigbox Singapore!

"The crowd was a hot mess of energy. Mosh pits swirled, shoes were lost"
The Void Report, on Ministry’s latest tour.

This will be MINISTRY’s first ever show in Singapore! The set list gives a nod to their past with Just One Fix, N.W.O, Stigmata, Thieves, So What as well as their brutal more recent songs Punch in the Face, Lies Lies Lies. This isn’t the Industrial Revolution, this is the Industrial Insurgency as MINISTRY and FILTER combine to create their own energy source: fuelled by rib crushing riffs, thunderous rhythms and body slamming tunes. This is one tour that will leave fans emotionally charged and one you will NOT want to miss.

Ministry’s machine-gun beats and crushing guitars make other heavy bands seem rather faceless in comparison. Founder and frontman Al Jourgensen, dressed like a haunting voodoo priest, tears through songs with his indelicate roar and gives the band a greater aura of style and theatrics.

Al “Fucking” Jourgensen is the undisputed king of industrial music. The Godfather of a genre he helped to create and mold into something millions of fans have grown to love throughout its 30+ years in development. You can’t say his name without thinking of heavy guitar riffs, crushing drum beats and unmistakable samples. Even his image is iconic and recognizable. You immediately think of a man in black, with top hat and flowing dreadlocks.

1985 - 86 were milestone years for Jourgensen. This is where he established himself as a force to be reckoned with releasing two iconic and powerful releases.  The newly discovered Ministry, producing the heavy dark, industrial sound, Twitch and just months later, the equally iconic sounds of the Revolting Cocks, Big Sexy Land on Wax Trax!

In the early 90’s Jourgensen and Ministry found critical and commercial success. One of which being Grammy nominated for the now legendary 1992 album, Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs. The track, N.W.O. bringing not only the Grammy nod, but the Ministry name to the mainstream.

To date, he’s earned the respect of his peers around the world from bands like Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and KMFDM.  Jourgensen continues to influence and change in his many different incarnations.  His style is and always will be deeply rooted in Industrial, but he’s not afraid to venture out and create new forms as most recently can be heard in his latest project, Surgical Meth Machine.

Industrial rock behemoths FILTER will be joining MINISTRY! Led by Richard Patrick, FILTER bring their larger than life live performance to Singapore for the first time too! Having recently released their 7th album “Crazy Eyes”, this will be your chance to listen to all your favourite tracks – Take A Picture, Hey Man Nice Shot, Welcome To The Fold, Trip Like I Do plus more!

“Richard Patrick is no stranger to delivering a pummeling round of songs to his diehard fans.”thevinyldistrict.com

Filter emerged as one of the most popular bands in the mid-'90s post-industrial alternative scene. Vocalist and primary member Richard Patrick had been a guitarist with Nine Inch Nails during the Pretty Hate Machine and Broken eras. In 1993, Patrick decided to leave NIN to form his own band. He met Brian Liesegang through a mutual friend and the pair began to record together. Patrick handled vocals, guitars, bass, programming, and drums, while Liesegang covered programming, guitars, keybo

RICHIE KOTZEN Live in Singapore
LAMC Productions is proud to announce that the Guitar wizard, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Richie Kotzen, will be bringing his ‘Salting Earth World Tour’ to Singapore for the very first time on August 21, 2017 at the Esplanade Annexe Studio!Fans are in for a special treat as Kotzen will be performing songs from his impressive 28-year career at his electrifying show in Singapore. The tour comes in support of Kotzen's recently-released 22nd solo album, Salting Earth, on which he plays every instrument.“Salting Earth is another solid collection of songs to add to the Kotzen catalog. Few artists continue to put out new music as often as Kotzen and not only is Kotzen continuing to put out new music, but he keeps doing it at a high level. Salting Earth has a little something for everyone”. - Blue Rocks Review Richie Kotzen has never been an artist known for playing by the rules and that meant putting on the brakes after a nonstop flurry of band-related activity in order to refuel the creative process for the ten heartfelt and hard-hitting songs that comprise his vibrant solo album, Salting Earth. The proof is on display deep within the grooves of Salting Earth, which veers from the balls-out, heads-up declaration of the opening track “End of Earth” to the burning-sky harmonic thrust of “Thunder” to the Prince-like funk-jazz swing of “This Is Life” to the acoustified take-me-as-I-am self-reflection of the album’s final song, “Grammy.” A one man production machine, Kotzen writes all the music and plays every instrument on his solo work. Guitar, bass, drums, piano and more.Kotzen’s previous solo release, 2015’s diverse, far-reaching Cannibals, was also a well- received hit among his core fan base.With his fast playing, fluid sweeping technique, and a soulful singing voice, Kotzen was being mentioned in the same breathe as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Tony MacAlpine. Word spread along the Hollywood music scene and Kotzen joined Poison when he was 21 replacing departed C.C. DeVille giving the band more of a blues sound on their Native Tongue release. Kotzen, who once opened for The Rolling Stones on their Bigger Bang tour in 2006, describes his style as a mix of rock, blues, jazz, fusion, and soul music.“When Richie Kotzen picks up his guitar, it literally speaks through him.” - Music RadarIn 2013 Richie joined forces with two giants of the music industry. Billy Sheehan (David Lee Roth, Mr Big, Steve Vai) and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Flying Colors) to form The Winery Dogs. The power trio released two highly successful albums, The Winery Dogs in 2013, and Hot Streak in 2015.While having several lifetimes of albums to his name, bringing music to the people is Richie’s main mission.Kotzen is clearly eager to hit the road. “I know this is going to be a long album cycle of touring, and already we are talking about going to places I’ve never been before,” Kotzen notes. “With the new record being done and knowing dates are being booked around the world, I can feel my creative energy surging once again.”Said energy surge has been seeded quite liberally all throughout Salting Earth, an album that shows Kotzen as the pillar for how to harness newfound creativity in the best light imaginable. Come and dig his Earth!

The Swiss Army Romance set  the tone for the band’s massive impact on both their fans and the media alike, including SPIN, Alternative Press, MTV, among many others. Carrabba molded simple acoustics with passionate, personal wordplay on his 2000 debut, Swiss Army Romance, and a devout audience began to gather around the naked honesty of his lyrics.By late 2000, Carrabba was free to devote his undivided time to Dashboard Confessional and by then, three other musicians had joined the band, including former Further Seems Forever bandmate Jerry Castellanos.

POND - Live in Singapore
LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce that psychedelic rock band, POND, will be bringing their tour to Singapore on Thursday, 23 November, 2017 at Esplanade Annexe Studio!''Pond's live show is comprised of spectacular moments... The psych-pop jesters spun old and new tunes into pure entertainment gold''. - San Francisco WeeklyOne of the West Coast's most exciting exports, Pond have cut their teeth over the years touring with the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, MGMT and Flaming Lips. They have blown audiences away at some of the world's premier music festivals including Primavera, Coachella, South by Southwest, Laneway Festival, Splendour In The Grass and more, and have sold out countless venues around the globe from New York's Bowery Ballroom to Paris' La Gaite Lyrique and London's O2 Forum. Pond shares members with fellow Perth outfit Tame Impala, with frontman Nick Allbrook contributing to both acts until 2013 and Jay 'Gum' Watson still a member of both.Since the beginning, POND wrote music and produced records faster than a label could release them. POND followed up Psychedelic Mango within months, releasing Corridors of Blissterday, a frenzied effort recorded live with an eight-piece band in 2009. A year later, their third album Frond, a kaleidoscopic classic, dripping with funk and falsetto, loosely inspired by a diet consisting only of Prince and Fleetwood Mac, delighted audiences Australia-wide. Frond's release finally realised industry attention and praise, solidifying the band and their music in it's own right. Beard, Wives and Denim, their 4th album, was recorded on a farm a few hours South-West of Perth. Beard, Wives, Denim is a triumph of the eclecticism and good humor that drives POND.Upon Beard, Wives, Denim release in March 2012, global attention shined it's light upon the Perth gang. A North American tour ensued, smashing through 31 shows - including 8 at South by South West - where they were one of the most talked about bands of the festival. From there, they returned home to Australia and sold out a national tour before storming UK and Europe, causing NME to tout them as the ''hottest band in the world right now'' as well as proclaiming Beard, Wives, Denim as ''quite possibly the best album released so far this year.''''From sleazy rock excess, to introspective, cracked psychedelia and back again'' - FaderIn August 2013, POND gifted to the world their 5th LP in as many years, Hobo Rocket. Hobo Rocket is 40 minutes of perfectly imperfect emotion, challenging veteran listeners and music reviewers with an evolved and vigorous sound. Singer Nick Allbrook describes the release as the ''...kind of mindset of finding our own little place in music, and being more of a functioning band, which is what makes it noisier and denser. This one we went as brutally hard as we would at a show. We wanted the songs to sound loose and live.''Pond then went ahead to release their seventh LP, 'The Weather' in May 2017. The Weather is Pond's seventh long-player, their own baffled, if ever madcap barometric reading of the geo-political situation (amongst others), in mind-bendingly excellent album form.''Pond's new album mixes bright synths, campy detours, and grim lyrics... It's a document of a band knocking loudly on the door of greatness'' - PitchforkPerfectly measured in its lurching between moods, relevant in its synth-pop/guitar-psych balance, and bang on the money in its polemical anxieties, The Weather is the classic killer Pond album.Make sure you get down to Pond's Singapore show for infectiously funky highs, psych-rock grooves and some of the best live pop performances you'll

Staying an exciting course in a sea littered with also-rans, pretenders, and opportunists, Dream Theater's body of work endures with singular triumph.Originally named Majesty by Berklee College of Music students Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy, the band soon expanded with the addition of keyboard player Kevin Moore and vocalist Chris Collins. Releasing an eigh--tune demo, Majesty Demo, as Majesty, the group sold 1,000 copies within six months. The departure of Collins in late 1986 left Majesty without a vocalist, and after a long period of auditioning possible replacements, the group settled on Charlie Dominici in November 1987. Changing its name, the group agreed on "Dream Theater," inspired by a now-demolished California movie theater.Following a couple of changes over the years, Dream Theater's current lineup includes John Petrucci on guitar, John Myung on bass, James LaBrie on vocals, Jordan Rudess on keyboards and continuum and Mike Mangini on drums. Dream Theater released their latest studio album, The Astonishing in January 2016 to generally favourable reviews and debuted in the top ten of nine countries and became the first Dream Theater album to reach number one on the US Billboard Rock Chart."Prog-metal heroes go all the way on an epic rock opera with The Astonishing" - Rolling Stones
