Like most genres, rock 'n' roll music has changed significantly over the decades however, there are still many fans, musicians, bands and critics who refuse to accept it as anything other than what it was in the beginning - hard and loud, and independent New Jersey, US band, RatRod had dedicated themselves to bringing it back harder and louder than has ever been done before.

If you are a fan of bands like AC/DC, then this new band will most certainly hit your sweet spot where it hurts (in a good way).

Making their debut on the 25th of August, 2017 with the release of their critically acclaimed 8 track album, "Do You Remember Rock And Roll", the band paid homage to the original sounds and pioneers of rock while bringing a fresh new air to the genre at the same time, resurrecting all the original elements, arrangements and sounds in a whole new light.

With singles like "Mirror Mirror" and the self-titled song, "Do You Remember Rock And Roll", they struck a cause in real rock fans and critics, and are being revered not just for their authenticity and originality but also for their virtuosic performing style. 

The debut album is available on CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and all top digital music services/apps worldwide.

Find the latest new singles and albums of Autumn, 2017 in Canada right now and discover top new artists and bands and similar acts

If anyone knows how to intensify the build up to an album and get fans' ears watering right up to the very second before its release, it's none other than Canadian rock artist, Tara Kye. Tara has proven to be one of the most hard working emerging artists in British Columbia, and possibly in Canada as a whole even. Over the past 12 months alone she has released close to 10 singles back to back almost every month. She released a 6 track EP, "Tortured Love" in February, which treated fans to her top releases prior to the EP, including the title track, "Tortured Love" which was her latest single at the time. Similarly, in August she released the single "Freedom Rocks" shortly before announcing her new album "Freedom Rocks" which was released on the 21st of August, 2017. 

It's been an exciting year for Tara's fans, and an even more exciting year for Tara whose passion is to inspire and motivate the world through music. She sprung onto Canada's rock scene with a distinctive, captivating, organic rock sound that pays homage to the authentic sounds of the genre whilst skillfully incorporating elements from other genres without compromising its integrity with the help of Canadian musician, John Dean, who taught her how to play the piano and has since worked with her on many of her songs.

Her latest album demonstrates her growth as an artist over the past year and features 10 songs including many of her previous hits. "Freedom Rocks" is available to download on iTunes, and stream on Apple Music and Spotify.
