FOR iMMEDiATE RELEASE:
SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 - The polls have closed for ROCKWIRED.COM's recent ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign. Voters from all over the North America made their vote count and BOBAFLEX is ROCKWIRED.COM's 82nd ARTIST OF THE MONTH winner. This is the band's second time winning the title. Anyone who says that rock n roll is dead ain't listening to the right bands. In a time when everyone is watching what they in fear of retaliation form folks who spend way too much time on social media, you've got rock bands out there that are letting it all hang out in a way that's gonna get them some backlash from this group of people or that group of people, and a band like BOBAFLEX is leading the pack. Truth be told, these guys have been in the game since the turn of the century so we're talking ovr seventeen years-plus of sex drugs and the very music everyone claims is dead. there is is no posing here. The rabble-rousing is genetic. The band's founders - the brothers McCOY (lead singer MARTY and guitarist SHAUN) are direct descendants of the McCOY family famed for their epic feud with the HATFIELDS back in the 19th century. Family history aside, the band BOBAFLEXhave proven time and time again that they are survivors in a music business that's been pumping everything it's got into pop tarts and pretty boys instead of anything with balls attached to it. A testimonial to the band's fighting spirit is their latest album ELOQUENT DEMONS. Front man MARTY McCOY had this to say about the album's creation and the inspiration behind it."The truth is we hardly had anytime t to work on this album. Our manager DOUG called us up afer we had done 175 shows and told us that we needed a record by August 25th. We were like 'Uh, okay!' So we got to work, but it was an easy record to make. It happened very fast. My brother SHAUN came up with the name of the album. We always come up with the name first, then we get a sense of direction for the album . ELOQUENT DEMONS ia about all of us. We're all nice guys but we have our own demons. We can get a little crazy with alcohol or sex. That was what started the whole thing . The the title and the concept figured outthe album came for th really fasy. It was bizare. Some of the songs wrote themselves. Like the song REAL SADNESS. It was all of us in a room looking at each other and singing lyrics that we hadn't written down yet. But we were singing together, at the same time all at once. It was bizare."

And with regard to the purported "death" of rock n roll, MARTY McCOY had this to add. "I stood and saw METALLICA play for 75,000 people at ROCK THE RANGE. I don't thinkit's dead by any means. We're getting ready to play Madison, Wisconsin. Last year 15,000 people showed up. Shows like ROCK THE RANGE and ROCKLAHOMA are proof that rock n rol is not dead. I'll admit that it's not like it once was but you've got bands like NOTHING TO WORRY , RED TIDE RISING and ROYAL BLOOD . You've also got a lot of bands coming out of Ohio. Ohio is like Los Angeles used to be for rock except without the awesome weather in the winter time. fourteen-hundred people in Columbus came to see us play and bought our record. It reached #2 on the AMAZON ROCK CHARTS and #15 in the OVERALL ACTION CHARTS the day it came out. Rock n roll doesn't look dead to me. TAYLOR SWIFT put out a record the same day and we got #15 on that chart. If it's dead, it's ghost is haunting the hell out of everybody. "
