It started out as a tribute to a friend. Jamie Duffy was a bona fide underground-rock fixture in the Chicago club scene, a highly regarded musician and talented sound engineer who always gave his best to make any band he was working with sound their best. It didn’t matter if it was a national touring act or a half-assed cover band playing jock jams in a sports bar, farting their way through “Eye Of The Tiger”: Duffy made bands sound better than they ever should have.
After a number of member defections, Old Wounds have returned determined to raise post-hardcore to a much-needed, long-overdue, next-level status. After much fan speculation, frontman Kevin Iavaroni has returned to the band; and to further cement their conviction, Old Wounds teamed up with the Widow Brothers directing team of Michael R. Garcia and Michael Elinn to deliver a video for a new song, “Only Your Enemies Leave Roses,” which AP is premiering today.
It was time for Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo—the constant of electronic dance/rock act the Bloody Beetroots—to make a new record full of mayhem soundtracks and other avenues of electronic cool. But like anybody seeking to expand their craft, he wanted to do something way different. For the new BB album, The Great Electronic Swindle, Rifo went through his phone book and reached out to people to contribute vocals.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
