Being As An Ocean buy out contract to go independent, announce new music

Cleveland-based Dead Leaves are releasing their debut album, Vultures, on Friday, Aug. 25 via Take This To Heart Records, and today they’re streaming the album early—and sharing the story about how their powerful, vulnerable debut came to be.

“The entire record is about vulnerability,” vocalist Elliott Blair explains. “Every song on the new record touches on some form of vulnerability. For example, ‘Talk Me Down’ is about building trust back up with someone that you’ve lost trust with. ‘Sunrise’ is about alzheimer's and losing touch with yourself; being vulnerable in the grand sun.”

The vulnerability isn’t anything new to Dead Leaves, who have always been boldly honest in their offerings. For the band, it’s their sonic delivery that has been discovered and solidified on this release.

“It wasn’t intentional at first. We were playing with a couple new songs that we had written and decided after one or two songs that that was the direction we wanted to go,” Blair says.

Watch Jerry Lewis sing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' at his last telethon and try not to cry

For all his accomplishments as an entertainer, Jerry Lewis, who died Sunday at the age of 91, is best known to many Americans as the host of his eponymous Labor Day telethon to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Beginning in 1966, Lewis would host the telecast that lasted up to 21-and-a-half hours, with audiences phoning in donations that ultimately totaled more than $2 billion by the time Lewis and MDA parted company — rather unceremoniously, sadly — in 2011.
Making life better for his “Jerry’s Kids” was his life-long passion, and the telethons were true marathons, with the host ad-libbing with special guests from hour to hour. Sometimes, you weren’t sure he was going to make it through to the end, when he would close the show with a rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel.

SNL star Leslie Jones on ticking off Trump: 'Of course we loved it'

Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones got inside President Trump’s head when she lobbied to play him in February, and now she’s opening up about how she and her cast mates felt getting under his skin.
In a recent interview with the New York Times, the first-time Emmy nominee reflected on SNL‘s most-watched season in 23 years and said, “I knew something exciting was happening because of the election, and we were going to try to cover it as best we could. Everybody’s like, ‘Oh, isn’t it exciting?’ But to us it just felt normal.”
Asked if it still felt like business as usual when Trump started bashing the show on Twitter, Jones replied, “We loved that. Of course we loved it. You just want to see him turn red and orange, all the colors.”
Jones also discussed the inspiration for her sketch about wanting to play Trump.

Publicist: Jerry Lewis, comedian, telethon host, dies at 91

Jerry Lewis, the manic, rubber-faced showman who jumped and hollered to fame in a lucrative partnership with Dean Martin, settled down to become a self-conscious screen auteur and found an even greater following as the tireless, teary host of the annual muscular dystrophy telethons, has died. He was 91. Publicist Candi Cazau says Lewis died Sunday morning of natural causes at age 91 in Las Vegas with his family by his side.
