Kevin and Kane Churko's The Hideout Recording Studio has been nominated by Pro Sounds for Studio of the Year. The news comes following a very active 2016/17, in which Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, One OK Rock (double platinum in Japan), Disturbed, and others, have all recorded. The Hideout is formally known as Audio Mixhouse until the Churkos took it over in 2015. Extensive renovating and upgrading followed. The Pro Sound Awards take place September 28th in London. #TheHideoutRecordingStudio

Some of the work Kevin and Kane Churko did in 2016 and earlier this year will be put on display later in 2017. First, Kevin produced and co-wrote on the upcoming In This Moment album, Half God/Half Devil. The album's first single, "Oh Lord," is due out later this Spring, with Devil releasing sometime in the Summer. Five Finger Death Punch recorded their new release with the Churkos, finishing their yet-untitled album (while no one was looking) over the Christmas holiday. Team Churko co-wrote with the band and Kevin produced. No official announcement on the album's released date and first single. Kevin went [...]
Cadium Music had another successful year, led by the Kevin Churko-produced Disturbed album, Immortalized. The group's seventh album was released in 2015 and garnered four number one songs at U.S. rock radio, three co-written by Churko - "The Vengeful One," "The Light" and "Open Your Eyes." "Eyes" remains on the rock radio charts going into 2017 and Immortalized was certified Gold earlier this year. Churko co-wrote and produced the album. Not far behind as far as radio and retail success, Five Finger Death Punch's latest album, Got Your Six, yielded a number one at U.S. rock radio with "Wash It All Away" and [...]
If you weren't paying attention, you would just assume that Kane Churko is a rock producer who only understands one genre of music: Rock. But that is not the case. Churko comes from a very pop music direction, growing up with his dad, producer Kevin Churko, and being in pop bands, such as Mr. Kane and Modern Science. In a feature by the Las Vegas Weekly, Churko talks about riding the wave of rock, but really being a pop guy.
The two songs at the top of at least two rock charts have become very familiar over the last month or so, as Disturbed and Five Finger Death Punch (pictured above) command those positions. One of the things in common with both songs? Both songs co-written and produced by Kevin Churko. "The Light" spent five weeks at the number one spot on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart, only to give way in the last reporting week to Five Finger Death Punch's "Wash It All Away," which spent the same amount of time at number two. In the most recent chart that came [...]
This week's radio charts report that Disturbed's, "The Light," and Five Finger Death Punch's "Wash It All Away," take hold of the number one and number two spots, respectively. Both songs were co-written by Kevin Churko. Both Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs and FMQB's Active Rock charts revealed the latest numbers. "The Light" is Disturbed's second number one at rock radio from their latest album, Immortalized. The other chart-topper was the album's lead track, "The Vengeful One." FFDP's "Wash It All Away" is the second single off their new album, Got Your Six. According to FMQB's chart, the song was only about 100 spins behind "The [...]
While it's becoming a habit, it's still an achievement: In a music business that seems to be dominated by free streaming, Five Finger Death Punch has scored its third debut at number two on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart with Got Your Six (or fourth, if you included both volumes of The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell).Co-written and produced once again by Kevin Churko, Got Your Six eschews the softer side of FFDP as showcased on both parts of the Heaven album, but has the power of the record's first single, "Jekyll and Hyde," which is currently at number three on [...]
Cadium Music Publishing's writer/producer, Kevin Churko, scored his first number one album with Disturbed's latest, Immortalized. Churko has written and produced albums that hit number two on the Billboard Top 200 album chart with Five Finger Death Punch's American Capitalist and The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell (Vols. One and Two), but until very recently, the number one spot had remained elusive. Churko co-wrote on all the band's 15 songs from the album. Disturbed, no stranger to number ones, has had its last five albums open at the top spot. Immortalized has been partly fueled by the anticipation [...]
After a five year hiatus, Disturbed are back with a new album.The Chicago quartet chose to (not so) quietly step into Kevin and Kane Churko's The Hideout towards the end of last year and record 19 songs, which culminated in Immortalized, due out August 21, according to the band's website. Kevin helmed the sessions and is credited with co-writing all the songs.The lead track is "The Vengeful One," and based on some Disturbed Ones' reaction, the news of a new album is happily welcomed.
