WIN the Outlaws' New CD 'Dixie Highway' TODAY!

For those not in the know, with the release of Dixie Highway, the Outlaws once again blaze a route that is as familiar to the faithful as it is unflinching in its mission.

Indeed, the Outlaws will celebrate their 45th anniversary since the release of the first album with the release of this brand new album Dixie Highway (out now via SPV / Steamhammer).

The band who released legendary albums like Hurry Sundown and Ghost Riders and are spoken of within the same genre as both Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet as being one of the biggest Southern Rock bands there has ever been.

In 2016, the band, still led by original members Henry Paul and Monte Yoho, released the much acclaimed live album Legacy Live, but this new one takes the band back to their roots; and is the first one of new and reworked material since 2012.

1. 'Southern Rock Will Never Die'
2. 'Heavenly Blues'
3. 'Dixie Highway'
4. 'Over Night from Athens'
5. 'Endless Ride'
6. 'Dark Horse Run'
7. 'Rattlesnake Road'
8. 'Lonesome Boy from Dixie'
9. 'Showdown'
10. 'Windy City's Blue'
11. 'Macon Memories'

So, if you would like to win one of these new CDs, and you think you know all there is to know about the band, just answer this easy question: Formed in Tampa in 1972, The Outlaws – known for their triple-guitar rock attack and three-part country harmonies – became one of the first acts signed by WHO to his then-fledgling records label?

Send us your answers and if you're correct you'll be in the running to win one of these CDs! Just send us an e:mail here before September 1st, 2020 with your answer and the subject title WIN OUTLAWS CDs to: exclusivemagazine@flash.net

WIN Epic Tantrum's Abandoned in the Strangers Room

For those not in the know, one of prog rock’s most promising new bands, Epic Tantrum (which is now one of my most favorite band names ever!) have just-released (January 20th, 2020) their quite brilliant debut double CD, Abandoned in the Stranger's Room.

Containing elements of prog rock, jazz, and heavy metal, Epic Tantrum’s debut double disc offering is a double dip assortment of wonderment, that's for sure.

Epic Tantrum is comprised of members Peter - guitar, vox; Paul - guitar, vox; Greg - bass, vox; and Z - drums and the origins of the band started in 2007 when Peter and Paul began recording instrumental classical guitar pieces.

They enjoyed working together and decided to write and record original material in Paul's studio, known as The Strangers Room.

It was there that the two wrote songs and tinkered with them until they were satisfied, at which point they brought in friends to round out their recording sessions.

They named this collaboration Epic Tantrum, and recorded a demo entitled ‘31st’ and ‘Mary.'

Over the next few years, with several starts and stops, they continued to write and record material - but the goal of a full band remained elusive.

In 2016 Greg joined the band as bassist and the hard work of finishing their debut album kicked into full gear.

On the first CD of this debut album, entitled Abandoned, it features studio recordings of previously unreleased material. Whereas the second CD, entitled The Stranger’s Room features live versions of songs from Abandoned as well as material that appeared on previously released demos.

CD 1: Abandoned
1. 'Don't Bother … '
2. 'Unfold'
3. 'Accessory'
4. 'Fables Of Fortune'
5. 'Outside The Wire'
6. 'Into The Clutch'
7. 'Letting Go'
8. 'False Idols'
9. 'A Howling'
10. 'Abandoned'

CD 2: In the Stranger’s Room (Live)
11. 'Baillee's Gone Again'
12. 'Franklin Park Blues'
13. 'Letting Go'
14. 'Now I Know'
15. 'Accessory'
16. 'Fables Of Fortune'
17. 'The Artist'
18. 'Don't Bother …'
19. 'Drown'

So, if you would like to win one of these new SIGNED CDs, with one lucky winner also receiving a brand new Epic Tantrum tshirt, and you think you know all there is to know about the band, just answer this easy question: Peter and Paul were inspired from the off by the creative process of which legendary duo (and which band they are better known as being part of)?

Send us your answers and if you're correct you'll be in the running to win one of these CDs! Just send us an e:mail here before September 1st, 2020 with your answer and the subject title WIN SIGNED EPIC TANTRUM CDs to: exclusivemagazine@flash.net

WIN Signal 13's New CD 'Destination Unknown' NOW!

For those not in the know, Signal 13 is a contemporary rock band that is paying homage to the classic rock sound on their latest release, the 5-song EP, Destination Unknown (out now).

Formed in Baltimore, the band is led by front-woman, Vicky Starr and joined by guitarists Johnathan Lassiter and Chris Starr, bassist Patrick Jenkins, and drummer Johnny Sexx.

Originally a covers band, Signal 13 are well known in their Mid-Atlantic area for their energetic live shows, and due to them have even had the honor to open for the likes of Kix and Great White.

1. 'Dirty' (3:41)
2. 'Karma' (3:29)
3. 'Make It Rain' (4:16)
4. 'Stay With Me' (4:53)
5. 'All Fired Up' (3:33)

If you would like to win an AUTOGRAPHED copy of this totally rockin' new CD, just answer this easy question about the band themselves: Their track 'Dirty' is about how the business had done the band dirty and they were lyrically showing those people that they had come back stronger because of it.

BUT it wasn't always about that.

So, what was it originally meant to lyrically portray before it morphed into the stance it possesses today? [Clue: Watch the YouTube 'Behind The Music' clip below!]

WIN Den of Ashes NEW CD EP ... AUTOGRAPHED!

For those not in the know, Ash Beck, the grandson of early Country & Western entertainers John and “Texas Peggy” Clemens / The Wyoming Ramblers circa 1930s – 1950s (who toured and shared friendships with The Carter Family, Tex Ritter, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash), has just released his brand new EP (and his third studio album), the sweetly melancholic The Garden (out now via Starry Eyed Records).

The singer-songwriter better known as Den of Ashes creates and presents his music as a unique and intimate exploration into the human condition of love, hope, dreams and even death.

The moody melodic songs are about lost moments in time which means there is a rare loneliness there within the deep rich vocals and western tonality, which captures the very essence of the Western landscape.

1. 'Adam and Eve'
2. 'Rain'
3. 'Avenue of Stars'
4. 'Adam and Eve' (Extended Version)

If you would like to win a copy of this ornately resounding, heartfelt and soulfully earnest new AUTOGRAPHED CD EP, just answer this easy question about the man himself, Ash Beck: The musician himself traveled 3 hours outside of Mexico City to take the photos that make up the artwork for his new CD EP. The main cover art though is of a burned out _____ __________ that had been reclaimed by nature for 40+ years.

So, what was this burned out building back in the day, back in its prime? [Clue: If you go to his website, you might just spot something that can point you in the right direction!]

WIN 'American Experience: The Circus' on DVD!

This four-hour mini-series tells the story of one of the most popular and influential forms of entertainment in American history.

Drawing upon a vast and rich visual archive, 'The Circus' follows the rise and fall of the gigantic, traveling tented railroad circus, recounting the era when Circus Day could shut down a town, and circus stars were among the most famous people in the country.

For many Americans, the circus embodied the improbable and the impossible, the exotic and the spectacular.

Through the intertwined stories of several of the most innovative and influential impresarios of the late nineteenth century, this series reveals the circus was a uniquely American entertainment created by a rapidly expanding and industrializing nation; that it embraced and was made possible by Western imperialism; that its history was shaped by a tension between its unconventional entertainments and prevailing standards of respectability; and that its promise for ordinary people was the possibility for personal reinvention.

Drawing upon a vast and richly visual archive and featuring a host of performers, historians and aficionados, 'The Circus' brings to life an era when Circus Day would shut down a town, its stars were among the most famous people in the country, and multitudes of Americans gathered to see the improbable and the impossible, the exotic and the spectacular.

If you would like to win a copy of this quite eye-opening and colorfully wonderous new DVD, just answer this easy question about circus history itself: In 1829, a play called "The ________ of Siam" was performed at the Adelphi in London and later toured the country.

It featured a trained _________ that went by the rather hoity-toity name of Mademoiselle D'Jeck! What was this animal though?!

WIN 'NOVA: Death Dive to Saturn' on DVD!

Almost everything we know today about the beautiful giant ringed planet comes from Cassini, the NASA mission that launched in 1997 and arrived at Saturn in 2004.

Since then, the space probe has been beaming home miraculous images and scientific data, revealing countless wonders about the planet, its rings and 62 moons - including some that could harbor life.

As the mission approaches its final days in 2017, it attempts one last set of daring maneuvers - diving between the innermost ring and the top of Saturn's atmosphere.

Aiming to skim less than 2000 miles above the cloud tops, no spacecraft has ever gone so close to Saturn, and hopes are high for incredible observations that could solve major mysteries about the planet's core.

But such a daring maneuver comes with many risks and is no slam dunk. In fact, slamming into rocks in the rings is a real possibility.

Join NASA engineers for the tense and triumphant moments as they find out if their bold re-programming has worked, and discover the wonders that Cassini has revealed over the years.

If you would like to win a copy of this quite wondrous new DVD, just answer this easy question about Saturn's rings: The rings are about ??% water with other impurities that cause some of the color. So, what is that percentage of water?! (we'll give you 5% either way!)

From the devastating war in Syria, to the crisis in Yemen, to continuing turmoil in Iraq, much of today's widespread violence across the Middle East has been portrayed as part of an ancient battle between the Sunni and Shia branches of Islam.

WIN 'American Experience: Chinese Exclusion Act'!

On May 6th, 1882 - on the eve of the greatest wave of immigration in American history - President Chester A. Arthur signed into law a unique piece of federal legislation.

Called the Chinese Exclusion Act, it singled out as never before a specific race and nationality for exclusion - making it illegal for Chinese workers to come to America - and for Chinese nationals already here ever to become citizens of the United States.

A deeply American story - about immigration and national identity, civil rights and human justice; about how we define who can be an American, and what being an American means - the film examines the economic, cultural, social, legal, racial and political dimensions of the law; the forces and events that gave rise to it; and the effect it had, and continues to have, on American culture and identity.

'The Chinese Exclusion Act' explores in riveting detail this little known, yet deeply resonant and revealing episode in American history - one that sheds enormous light on key aspects of the history of American civil liberties, immigration, and culture - during one of the most formative periods of U.S. history.

If you would like to win a copy of this thought-provoking new DVD, just answer this easy question about those times surrounding this event, as a whole: Although the Chinese composed only ??? percent of the nation's population, Congress passed the exclusion act to placate worker demands and assuage prevalent concerns about maintaining white "racial purity." What is that percentage? (we'll give you a .5 either way!)

WIN 'FRONTLINE: Zero Tolerance' on DVD ... TODAY!

Donald Trump has made opposition to immigration the signature policy of his presidency, and used anti-immigration fervor to animate his supporters and fuel a political movement.

FRONTLINE reveals the inside story of how an unlikely group of outsiders became the driving force behind Trump's most controversial initiatives, as part of a grand strategy they would call "Zero Tolerance."

Drawing on nearly 40 lengthy, on-camera interviews, this documentary describes how Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Jeff Sessions saw in the Trump candidacy a chance to roll back immigration - and how they have waged a war inside the White House to keep an unpredictable president on course.

'Zero Tolerance' shows that while Trump rode to power amid a chorus of "Build the Wall," behind the scenes the president was an unreliable ally on implementing key anti-immigration plans.

As the president waffled, Miller, Sessions and Bannon played the central role in bringing their "imperfect instrument" back into line.

It's a must-watch look at how America's immigration policies - and the rhetoric and images surrounding them -- reached this moment.
