ABC Family Debuts the World Premiere of Up and Coming"Dirty Shine" Sensation ZZ Ward’s First TRACK "Til The Casket Drops" In New "Pretty Little Liars" Music Video
In anticipation of the upcoming season premiere of original hit series "Pretty Little Liars," Tuesday, June 5th (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT), ABC Family is debuting an "A" themed music video for "Til the Casket Drops," the first song off the much anticipated new EP "Criminal" from rising star ZZ Ward. Fans can visit the Sound booth on ABCFamily.com to see the video beginning today. The song is also available for download and streaming for free for 24 hours.
ZZ recently made a splash with her free mixtape, Eleven Roses, on which she offers her interpretations of recent tracks by Freddie Gibbs, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Tyler, the Creator. Her signature style, dubbed "dirty shine," is a combination of the bone-deep wail of old-fashioned blues crossed with the big-city gloss of cutting-edge hip-hop. It instantly made an impression. Among the accolades:
"2012’s Artists to Watch... I don’t know of any other blues singer bold enough to belt over the beat of Tyler the Creator’s ‘Yonkers.’" - Esquire.com
"Whether her bluesy belting is accompanied by hip-hop beats or, as here, ["Last Love Song"] a gently plucked acoustic guitar, the palpable heartbreak in her voice will raise goose bumps down your spine.’" - Marie Claire
"The chanteuse’s ‘dirty blues with beats’ sound has gathered its fair share of buzz and she seems to have the poise and the chops to become a star."- San Francisco Bay Guardian
A tremendous array of artists are collaborating on ZZ’s forthcoming album including: Ryan Tedder, Pete Rock, Theron "Neff-U" Feemster, Ali Shaheed Muhammad (of A Tribe Called Quest), Ludwig Goransson, Blended Babies and Fitz (of L.A.’s Fitz and the Tantrums), while her four song EP, Criminal, is now available on iTunes.
In the upcoming season premiere of "Pretty Little Liars," Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are thrown back into turmoil after one shocking night in "It Happened ‘That Night’. Fans can prepare for the return to Rosewood in an all-day marathon starting at 11:00 AM (ET/PT) and running up to the one-hour season premiere at 8:00 PM (ET/PT). See the world premiere of the season three trailer of "Pretty Little Liars" only on ABCFamily.com starting on May 7th.
Spoiler S03E02 Blood is the new black
A new message from "A" sets the girls on edge.
THIS NEW ADVERSARY IS NOT MESSING AROUND IN AN ALL NEW EPISODE OF "PRETTY LITTLE LIARS," AIRING TUESDAY, JUNE 12TH AT 8:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (May 23, 2012) – Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are on edge with the arrival of a new message from "A," and quickly this tormentor shows that they mean business in "Blood Is the New Black," an all new episode of ABC Family’s hit original series "Pretty Little Liars," airing Tuesday, June 12th (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT).
A new "A" player is in town and is determined to show the Liars that he/she means business. After getting a gruesome reminder that "A" is still calling the shots, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer try to quickly devise a plan on how to deal with this old/new threat and the usual game that has been taken up a notch. Spencer and Hanna continue to play with fire as they look for answers, while one of Aria’s past indiscretions becomes fodder for "A’s" game.
Meanwhile, a still very shaky Emily tries to focus on school but could easily be derailed when she remembers a crucial piece from "that night."

I'm so sick of this show. It started with all the Ezria boring stuff but now it's all boringsomeone finally got it right, and seriously why can't someone give Ezria a car accident. I would love to see that pedo get ran over by a car or his car crashing.
