Performer Info

Saves The Day: They say humans completely shed their skin every seven years, and thus their entire beings are essentially born anew. If thats true, Saves The Day whove been playing for close to 10 years and are still only in their early 20s are well into their second life.

For Today: For Today has played with many national acts, too many to name. With a hard work ethic and a never ending goal to God's will and go as far as possible, For Today has completed many smaller tours as well as a 2 week midwest tour in April 2006 and a 4 week East Coust/South/Midwest tour in June 2006. They just finished recording 2 new songs to demo material for record labels with engineer Mike Dresch (Nodes of Ranvier, Bloodlined Calligraphy, War of Ages, etc.) and you can hear the new material on their myspace right now as well! For Today is still currently unsigned and doing everything by themselves but are shopping around for a record label to release a full length on and to tour full time to come to a city near you (if they haven't already!).

We The Kings: We the Kings is one of the latest up-and-coming pop punk bands to enter the mainstream, even with only two albums out. Over the past several years, We the Kings have been found on tour dates with some of the biggest names in pop punk and hardcore, including The Maine, Never Shout Never, and Mayday Parade. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of We the Kings' latest album, Sunshine State of Mind, on July 12. In the meantime, the band can be found on their summer concert schedule in 2011, including tour dates in Australia.

Guitarist and lead singer Travis Clark, guitarist Hunter Thomsen, his younger brother and bassist Drew, and drummer Danny Duncan had all been friends since they were kids. In 2003, they decided to form a band and began posting tracks on Purevolume four years later. In no time at all, We the Kings released their eponymous album which contained the hit, breakout single, "Check Yes Juliet." This led to major tour dates in support of bands like Boys Like Girls and Cobra Starship, in addition to performing on the 2008 Warped Tour.

We the Kings released Smile Kid in 2009, which was praised for its broadening of the band's sound. The album did well on the charts and launched We the Kings into the next echelon of fame. They played tour dates on the 2009 Bamboozle Roadshow Tour , which was followed by their first headlining tour dates on the Hot Topic Presents: Take Action Tour. We the Kings continued to headline tours, including dates with I See Stars and their friends The Maine and Never Shout Never.

We the Kings are heading out on more headlining tours this summer on their 2011 concert schedule. Beginning on July 7, We the Kings will embark on a number of tour dates throughout the US, including mall concerts and appearances at Six Flags theme parks. They will be supported by The Summer Set, The Downtown Fiction, Hot Chelle Rae, and Action Item before heading to Australia on August 27. We the Kings will only play five tour dates in Australia before their 2011 concert schedule ends on September 1, so buy your tickets today!

Air Dubai: ......Click for Air Dubai Online Store!...... .. ........

......Easier experienced than described, Air Dubai is a bustling seven-piece hailing from the burgeoning music scene of Denver, CO. With disparate musical backgrounds and indiscriminate influences, the boys of Air Dubai have truly created something new: pure, melodic cacophony.

When vocalists Julian Thomas and Jon Shockness conceived the product of their musical aspirations in the summer of 2008, the short-lived duo underwent a rejuvenation in the spring of 2009 with instrumentalists Nick Spreigl, Lawrence Grivich, Michael Ray, Taylor Tait and Wesley Watkins rounding out the band's current line-up. The band as it exists will go on to collect several titles (including Westword Magazine's Best Hip-Hop Band, and Clear Channel KTCL 93.3's Hometown for the Holidays winner) and universal praise for their eclectic brand of spicy alternative music: always well done, but never over-sauced.

Wonder Age, their debut long player released October 5th, 2010, is the embodiment of two years of anticipation built solely upon Air Dubai's live performance. Critically acclaimed and immensely popular, an Air Dubai show is a truly unique experience – an open invitation into the passion and soul behind Air Dubai, but also simply a testament to having a good time. Both national and international publications will say that Air Dubai stands confident in delivering both.

While their impressive roster of accomplishments would suggest that Air Dubai, seasoned and frail, is reaching the bottom of their slope, the truth is quite opposite. This young band has the world ahead of them – working efficiently and successfully to catch up to it; though Air Dubai is certain to document their experiences, life lessons, and discouragements – through their infectiously tasteful music – all along the way.

..2010 Westword Magazine "Best Hip Hop Band" Winner.. - Westword Magazine....

.."Wonder Age is an outstanding-sounding album that could easily propel Air Dubai into the national spotlight, especially on the strength of cuts like "Restless Youth," "Weekends" and "Warm Days.".. - Jon Solomon, Westword Magazine (September 29, 2010)....

..With an interplay akin to that of Bruno Mars and Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes -- an outfit Air Dubai is often compared to, for better or worse -- the two magnetic frontmen bring their style together in a way that's both complementary and compelling. Keep a steady eye on this young seven-piece.".. - Dave Herrera, Westword Magazine (September 28, 2010)....

.."Their music feels as though it widens the speakers yet the sound isn't crowded – just perpetually blooming. Sounds intermingling like seven matches from different books ignited together as one flame with scorching heat bellowing from all sides.".. - Brent Burns, KickKickSnare (September 14, 2010)....

.."City Hall became "Sauna Hall" when Air Dubai packed a crowd in for their brand of electronic hip-hop/R&B." .. - Denver Post Reverb (June 21, 2010)....

.."(As) Air Dubai continues to find success in an ever-turbulent scene, we (can) take comfort knowing that their rise isn't based on some sort of hype created by a machine, but merely a product of their hard work, dedication and natural talent." .. - 7 Day, Colorado Music Buzz (September 1, 2009)....

.."It's going to be a treat to watch this act develop." .. - Eryc Eyl, Westword Magazine (April 16, 2009)....

.."These songs sound like they've been percolating in the imaginations of Julian Thomas and Jon Shockness for years in terms of what would make for killer hip-hop songs." .. - Tom Murphy, Westword Magazine (February 18, 2009)......

Mayday Parade: This Tallahassee group formed when two local bands, Kid Named Chicago and Defining Moment decided to put their talents together in 2006. Soon after and still without a name, the pop-punk group went into the studio and recorded their first EP, Tales Told by Dead Friends. They finally decided on a name, released the EP, and Mayday Parade went on to book tour dates as the opener for Plain White T's. Blending emo, pop, and alt-rock, Mayday Parade concert dates are emotionally charged and energetic-- all of which combines to result in rave live show reviews from fans and critics alike.

After gaining attention from A&R execs at Fearless Records, the group was signed and in January, 2007 they hit the studio to record their first LP, A Lesson in Romantics. Right before the release date, lead singer Jason Lancaster, left the band for undisclosed reasons. Mayday Parade hauled on and released the record, which became an indie hit and peaked at #8 on the BIllboard Heatseekers chart. In support of the album, Mayday Parade tour dates were booked on the 2007 Vans Warped Tour and as part of The Give it a Name Festival in Sheffield and London. Further Mayday Parade concert dates were scheduled in 2008 at the Vans Warped Tour and the Compromising of Integirty, Morality, and Principles in Exchange for Money Tour.

The band hit the studio in 2009 to record a follow-up to their moderately successful debut. What ended up being Anywhere but Here, was released in 2009 and peaked at #31 on the Billboard 200 as a result of their loyal following. Mayday Parade concert dates were scheduled once again at the Vans Warped Tour 2010 and they co-headlined the UK tour, The Maine. Following a hectic touring schedule, Mayday Parade released a stripped-down acoustic EP entitled Valdosta in March, 2011.

Whether they are paring it down with their acoustic guitars or rockin' their punk-emo material, Mayday Parade tour dates are the hottest ticket in town since New Found Glory. Fans will not want to miss out on the opportunity to see these guys live. Stay informed: use Eventful as your source for all the latest Mayday Parade concert schedule updates for tour dates through 2011 and beyond.

Parkway Drive: Australian band Parkway Drive is spreading metal down under, and doing a good job of it. Parkway Drive is not only making a name for themselves, but a name for the music they love with hit records and widely attended concert dates. Parkway Drive has played concert dates with some of the biggest names in punk and metal, with these worldwide tour dates selling-out very quickly. With the success of their third full-length album, Deep Blue, Parkway Drive is knee deep in 2011 tour dates while promoting the album and playing the Mix N' Mash Tour in Australia.

Parkway Drive was formed in Byron Bay, Australia in 2002. The band's first recording was an EP titled Don't Close Your Eyes, which brought them fans from all across Australia and made them the go-to opening band for metal bands playing tour dates in Australia. With the success of their EP, Parkway Drive headed to the US to record their first album, Killing With a Smile. Parkway Drive scheduled dozens of tour dates to promote the album, including shows with punk bands like Anti-Flag, Senses Fail, and Taking Back Sunday. Parkway Drive was also the only Australian band to play concert dates on the 2007 Warped Tour while they worked on their second album, Horizons.

Horizons was a huge success with both fans and critics, some going as far as to insinuate that it was the next evolutionary step of metal. Parkway Drive promptly went on to promote the album with a number of concert dates, but always made time to tour Australia. On 2008's Surf Rat Tour, Parkway Drive went as far as to play tour dates in small surfing towns in Australia where most major bands don't perform. Parkway Drive continued playing concert dates around the world, and while they were out Horizons was becoming increasingly popular.

When the band set to work on their third album, Deep Blue, they intended to make their most brutal and heavy album yet. By this point, fans were waiting in frenzied anticipation for the album to release, as well as the subsequent tour dates. Within four hours of the album being released on Australian iTunes, Deep Blue had become the second highest selling album. Signs of Parkway Drive's increased popularity showed when they were asked to play dates on the 2010 No Sleep Til concert tour, with huge acts like Megadeth, NOFX, GWAR, and Atreyu.

Since the release of Deep Blue, Parkway Drive has had their schedule full of 2010 and 2011 tour dates. After finishing a US headlining tour in February and March, the new metal phenoms are embarking heading to Europe for concert dates. For May, Parkway Drive will be taking a break from their Euro tour to play The Mix N' Mash Tour, with concert dates exclusively in Australia. Parkway Drive will be joined by Australian hardcore bands You Me At Six, Bleeding Through, The Wonder Years, and Confession. They'll head back to Europe on June 9 for the remainder of the 2011 tour dates, so fans should get their tickets soon.

Terror: The tireless and tour-hungry hardcore loyalists in LA’s TERROR, spearheaded by the endless enthusiasm of frontman Scott Vogel, have earned quite a reputation since forming at the turn of the millennium. Their melding of no-frills breakneck hardcore and the fervor of new generation metal bridges the gap between young and old, and it makes for one hell of a pit no matter what city or stage the band leaves in ruin. Vogel has been a key figure in the scene’s survival, having given up a normal home life to slug it out on the road despite broken limbs, slipped discs and everything else that comes with hosting a TERROR show.

Yellowcard: Pop-punk rockers Yellowcard rose to fame during the genre's rise in the early 2000s. Their album Ocean Avenue brought them to the forefront of the mainstream and launched the band into the upper echelons of fame. Yellowcard's international tour dates display an energy and comfortability rarely rivaled by bands today. After going on hiatus in 2008, Yellowcard has returned to the public eye with the release of When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes in March 2011. The band's return to music also includes current 2011 tour dates, which has come as a relief to Yellowcard's fans.

Yellowcard's first two albums -- Midget Tossing (1997) and Where We Stand (1999) -- featured a hardcore punk sound and did not feature the vocal stylings of Ryan Key. Key brought a more popular and accessible pop punk sound to their third album, One for the Kids, and The Underdog EP, which gained Yellowcard much more attention. It also scored the group a record deal with Columbia Records, which released Ocean Avenue in 2003. The album's title track began playing on MTV and soon became a smash hit, launching Yellowcard into stardom. The album became so popular that Yellowcard was immediately given two years worth of headlining tour dates, further building their fan base.

After numerous delays, Lights and Sounds was released in 2006 and featured an alt rock sound that strayed from their hit style. Yellowcard brought back a portion of that pop-punk sound on their 2007 album, Paper Walls, which was followed by another couple of years playing tour dates. The strain touring put on the band member's personal lives became a little too much, and Yellowcard went on an indefinite hiatus in 2008. In August 2010, Yellowcard announced that they were working on new tracks, which was followed by their first concert date in four years in November. When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes was released in March 2011 and has received rave reviews from critics and fans, who not only call it a comeback for Yellowcard but also their best album yet.

In true Yellowcard fashion, the band is currently performing a number of tour dates in 2011. Currently in the US, Yellowcard will play a handful of concert dates in South America beginning on July 24. On August 24, the band will begin touring Europe, with tour dates in nearly a dozen countries before heading to Australia on September 24. On October 8, Yellowcard will return to the US to canvass the country once more before ending their 2011 tour dates on November 18. With so many concert dates for Yellowcard this year, check Eventful for all the details.

A Skylit Drive: Formation and EP (2006 – 2007)

A Skylit Drive's original members all met while attending Lodi High School in Lodi. Cory La Quay (drummer) attended Franklin High School in Elk Grove, California along with Matt Mingus (drummer) of Dance Gavin Dance.[3] Their debut EP, She Watched the Sky, was released early in 2007 on Tragic Hero.[4] Following this the group toured with Four Letter Lie, Blessthefall, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Greeley Estates, Oh Sleeper, The Blackout, Alesana, Before Their Eyes, Dance Gavin Dance, Kenotia, Pierce the Veil, and From First to Last. Jordan Blake left the band around November 2007 because he was not taking care of his voice, and eventally got very sick and had 11 ulcers in his lungs. Blake revealed this himself, as did the members of A Skylit Drive. Blake also said he did not quit, and was not kicked out. It was a mutual thing, the guys in A Skylit Drive knew he needed a break for hs health, and Blake said "I didn't wanna hold my boys back". He is currently with Watchout! Theres Ghosts. Jonny Craig replaced him for a short while after leaving Dance Gavin Dance, though before joining bands Emarosa and Isles & Glaciers.

Wires... and the Concept of Breathing (2008)

A demo version of "Knights of the Round," was performed live with Jonny Craig as the lead vocalist during his temporary tour with the band in November 2007. Though Craig had written lyrics to the song, only the chorus or refrain, was kept in the final album version sang by their new-found, permanent vocalist Michael Jagmin. Michael “Jag” Jagmin, formerly of Odd Project, replaced Craig permanently for vocals. Craig Mabbitt was also trying for lead vocals after getting kicked out of blessthefall, but accidentally called the manager of Escape the Fate instead of the manager for A Skylit Drive and ended up being in that band instead. The full length Wires...and the Concept of Breathing appeared in May 2008. The album hit #171 on the U.S. Billboard 200,[9] as well as #9 on the Top Heatseekers Chart and #20 on the Top Independent Albums chart.[10] Shortly after the release of the album they filmed a music video for the nonprofit group To Write Love on Her Arms directed by Robby Starbuck.[11] They appeared at The Bamboozle Left in 2008 and toured in the summer of that year with Sky Eats Airplane, Breathe Carolina, and Emarosa. They toured with Greeley Estates, August Burns Red, Sky Eats Airplane, This or the Apocalypse, Escape the Fate, Alesana, Chiodos, and Silverstein during fall in 2008. They also filmed a live DVD called "Let Go of the Wires", which was release on December 9, 2008.

In Mid-November the band released a music video for the song "Wires and the Concept of Breathing". The video can be viewed through their MySpace profile. Their song "This Isn't the End" is now the music video on their MySpace directed by Robby Starbuck about teen suicide in conjunction with the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. Both videos are on their first full length album, Wires... and the Concept of Breathing, and the band has shot other videos for songs on the album. They have announced that there will be five brand new videos on their upcoming DVD "Let Go of the Wires" as well as live performance footage from a show at the Glasshouse in Pomona, CA. The DVD was released exclusively at Hot Topic on December 9, 2008. On December 19 2008, it was announced that A Skylit Drive would be a part of the Vans Warped Tour 2009 lineup. This Spring A Skylit Drive will be headlining a US tour with Dance Gavin Dance, Attack Attack!, and In Fear and Faith

Adelphia (2009 – present)

In their DVD, "Let Go of the Wires", the band discussed plans for their next album. The album was to be titled "Glaciers". The band later announced that this would not be the title of their new album. On January 8 2009, the band announced, via a Myspace Bulletin, that they were now a part of Fearless Records and to expect a new album release sometime in 2009. They also announced tour dates with Dance Gavin Dance. On May 26th, A Skylit Drive released a new song, entitled "Those Cannons Could Sink a Ship" onto iTunes and also for play on their MySpace page. The song is the first of their new album to be released on iTunes. [12] A Skylit Drive is a part of Warped Tour for the 2009 season. Adelphia, released on June 9, 2009, peaked at number 64 on the Billboard 200.

Born of Osiris: BORN OF OSIRIS is said to be "an epic mix of intricate and memorable melodies with challenging time signatures that still hold an infectious groove, all while maintaining sheer, tasteful brutality."

Breathe Carolina: Kyle Even and David Schmitt of Breathe Carolina are putting the rock back in electronic music. The Denver duo rose to fame thanks to GarageBand software and MySpace that have promoted their unique blending of modern rock and a variety of synthesizers, and even a keytar. After only four years as Breathe Carolina, the duo is already headlining huge tour dates and their 2009 album, Hello Fascination, shot to the top of the dance charts. Fans who enjoyed the aforementioned album are overwrought over the recent release of Breathe Carolina's third album, Hell Is What You Make It. In honor of the record's release, Breathe Carolina is embarking on summer tour dates in 2011 with special guests, Scream It Like You Mean It.

David Schmitt and Kyle Even knew each other from separate bands that often played together in Colorado. After their respective band broke up, the two formed their own band in 2007 and began tinkering with music on GarageBand. The songs eventually gained fantastical plays on MySpace and Breathe Carolina began playing local tour dates. GarageBand also played a pivotal role in recording their debut studio album, It's Classy, Not Classic, which shot to #5 on the dance charts and #6 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

The album brought Breathe Carolina their first headlining tour dates, which continued up until recording began for their second album, Hello Fascination. The record performed even better on the Billboard charts and was even more well received by fans and critics. This led to an even busier concert schedule that included tour dates on the Warped Tour and performances on talk shows like The Jay Leno Show. Breathe Carolina's latest record, Hell Is What You Make It, has shown an evolution and maturity of the band; much to the delight of fans and audiences. The lead single, "Blackout", has already caused a stir thanks to MTV and fans are looking forward to the upcoming tour dates in 2011.

Breathe Carolina's upcoming North American tour dates in 2011 -- featuring Scream It Like You Mean It -- begin on July 15 in Seattle and will head South to circle around the edge of the US and Canada. The concert schedule will last roughly two months, with 2011 tour dates ending on August 26 in Breathe Carolina's hometown of Colorado. Don't miss this opportunity to catch these rising stars on their 2011 tour dates and buy your tickets on Eventful today.

Courage My Love: ..

I Fight Dragons: I Fight Dragons is Chicago's finest (and quite possibly only) NES-Rock band. They have very detailed delusions of grandeur, most of which include gross misuses of Nintendo products in combination with music in the Popular Rock genre.

This February, they sold out Chicago's Elbo Room as they self-released their debut EP, "Cool Is Just A Number," which has since gone on to chart nationally at 169 on the CMJ College Radio charts, and been featured across Commercial Radio formats in Chicago, on Alternative Rock (Q101), Top 40 (101.9 The Mix), and Independent Rock (93 XRT), as well as getting into rotation on KTCL (93.3) in Denver.

They use a talking computer a lot, or possibly a talking computer uses them a lot. They were selected as the Best new Chicago band for 2009 by There are several TVs at all of their shows, occasionally showing people playing videogame versions of their songs, while the band plays the songs live on videogame controllers, and everyone's heads explode.

They played a date on this year's Warped Tour. They tend to release free music to their email list every couple weeks (but you already know, since you're on it, right?). This fall, they'll be branching out from Chicago to tour the nation for 2 months with mc chris. All in all, there are 6 of them, and at least one of them is really really cool, but they haven't figured out which one yet. It's Hari.

"I FIGHT DRAGONS is a High-Def concert experience influenced by an 8-bit video game dream world. They are both an audio and visual powerhouse to have at the club" -Brian Bender, Elbo Room Chicago Talent Buyer/General Manager

I Fight Dragons’ EP, “Cool is Just a Number,” offers such catchy hooks that “irresistible” feels like an understatement.”

I The Mighty: We are a poet, an artist, a mechanic, and a kid from Wyoming...together we are I the Mighty from San Francisco, CA. In December of '08 we digitally released an acoustic EP under Adamant Records, recorded at Interscope Studios. In early 2010 we'll be releasing our first full-length electric album with Talking House Records.

We hand make merch.

We pour ourselves into our music and we love watching that resonate back at our live shows.

We tell epic stories of love and war.

We sing about sexual angst.

We can't decide what genre we truly fall in, but we're open to suggestions.

We do this because it's all we have and will ever want to do. We hope you join us for the journey!

The Color Morale: A goal is a dream with a deadline. As time drags on we find ourselves more and more threatened by the regret that can haunt us if we don’t overcome our fears and formulate an attempt at the pursuit our dreams; that or we settle and deal with regret later while repeating subconsciously “wish I would/could have.” The worst element of such regret is that of a pretense nature which keeps us afraid and unable to progress as individuals, and as a whole as well. Faithlessness is the stranglehold that can plague us and keep us from seeing our talents and ambitions.

After over 3 years together we have found repetitively asking ourselves “ why am I here.“ Our goal for the next year is to combine our creative tastes in music and personality to create a synergy in our third album release that can set us apart from our typical genre. Currently we are collaborating efforts to make an album saturated with intense dynamic, calculated arrangements, unplanned diversity and most off all, honesty. We plan to explore the boundaries of our genre preferences, and breech them in an artistic, original, and creative fashion. In doing so, our faith and work ethic will reflect our progress; and in turn we will carry out a dream shared on different levels with equal visions for one sole purpose. Everyone has a purpose, everything has a reason.

The Maine: Graduating high school early is nothing for a band when you have already graduated from the school of rock with honors. The Maine have taken no classes, were given no grades, and had no teachers. Hailing from Phoenix, AZ all they had was a gut feeling that the music they were playing rocked and inspired kids nationwide. Now, riding a wave of melodic lines and infectious hooks, The Maine is making their way to your ears with their debut EP, The Way We Talk on December 11, 2007.

The Maine formed in January of 2007. After junior year, when most students look forward to slacking off as seniors, The Maine asked two members to graduate early so that they can share their music with the rest of the world. You see, seven periods a day is just seven periods too long for The Maine who can't wait to get home to write more tunes. Bassist Garrett Nickelsen honestly states, "School has never really been number one for me, I have always tried to focus on the band so I'm ready to really get this band going." Now already juggling music video shoots, recording sessions and concerts, The Maine actually had the ink dry on their record contract before it dries on their diploma.

The Maine started when Pat and Garret were sick of jumping from garage band to garage band and wanted to take their unique vision of what music should be to the big time. John, Kennedy and Jarred all had similar ideas and the band knew they had the final line up as the hits and lyrics kept writing themselves. The Maine didn't want to continue in the screamo trend that they felt was swallowing their local music scene. They wanted to create a new sound and began drawing influences from 90's radio alternative bands. Meshing styles like indie, pop and rock can sound forced, often imitating other bands without a hint of originality, but for The Maine mixing a wide variety of genres just sounds natural. Every Maine song begs for an immediate repeat.

After gathering a huge following through Myspace, The Maine played their first show in front of over 600 fans, acquired solely through word of mouth and this social networking site. Scouts from almost every major and indie record label were present waiting in line to sign them after their jaw dropping performance. Jarred loves every minute on stage, "Playing live is the reason we exist. The energy that we feel on stage is usually a result of what we are feeling from our fans. It's just us conveying our experiences and feelings through our presence, and thriving off of the response we get. Garrett adds to our performance, he has a strong way of communicating with the crowd. When we see Garret going crazy it reminds us all of why we love what we do." The Maine's amazing live performances caught the eye of Fearless Records (Plain White T's, Sugarcult and Rock Kills Kid) and booking agent Matt Galle (My Chemical Romance, Boys Like Girls and HelloGoodbye.)

The Ready Set: Why should you check out The Ready Set? Why shouldn't you is a better question. Jordan Witzigreuter has got everything going for him. He isn't just a cute face in the scene - he creates ridiculously infectious dance beats with catchy melodies that will be stuck in your head all day long. And that's not all - he is one of the hardest working musicians out there. Fresh out of high school, this 18-year-older drummer, singer, and keyboardist extraordinaire is sure to catch the attention of fans across the country - and the world - with his dedication to his music and his guerrilla-style marketing of his music.

Witzigreuter's voice could be lightly compared to that of Bryce Avary's, as well as his songwriting tendencies. The Ready Set meld electronic beats and synths along with clever and catchy lyrics that are just as catchy as thought provoking; they really have a way of telling a story. The best thing about these lyrics is they don't dwell on negativity - they are almost always very positive and upbeat, which leads to a very feel good album.

The Ghost Inside: The Ghost Inside (formerly A Dying Dream) is an American melodic hardcore band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2004.

VANNA: New England post-hardcore group Vanna have spent the last several years on a personal journey, and it's the experience of living on the road that has helped them to discover who they truly are. After years of relentless touring and musical growth, the band has found balance with A New Hope, both literally and figuratively.

Since the bands formation in 2004 Vanna – Chris Preece (vocals), Nick Lambert (guitar/vocals), Evan Pharmakis (guitar/vocals), Shawn Marquis (bass) and newcomer Chris Campbell (drums) – have built a strong following based on their killer live shows, which helped garner attention from Epitaph Records. The band signed with the label in 2005 and released their debut EP, The Search Party Never Came, the following year. With the EP's release came extensive touring until it was time to release their full length album, Curses, in 2007. Signaling growth sonically from the EP, Curses highlighted the band's metalcore side establishing them as one of the most interesting up-and-coming bands in the post-hardcore scene.

After almost two years of touring in support of Curses, the band returned to their roots and entered the studio with producer Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Story of the Year) to record A New Hope. With widening musical vision and hard-won experience under their belts, Vanna tackled the writing and recording of A New Hope with an added perspective and understanding.

"The writing and recording process naturally becomes more dialed and decisive with each record," explains Preece. "This record was approached with more of a group mentality. We talked a lot about what we liked and disliked about our last two releases, and each one of us were able to express ourselves in every step of the process."

"Steve Evetts was honestly just a great fit for us," adds Pharmakis. "For me personally it was great because I feel my relationship with the producer is important. If we mesh well it shows in the recording. The more comfortable you are the better you perform, the better you can concentrate and the better ideas you come up with as a team, as far as harmonies and melody ideas. And Steve was a great mentor. Chris Preece and I really meshed our lyric and vocal ideas together in a different way on this album and it worked out great. We definitely got to show a more melodic side on the record. I'd like to think this new record is like the perfect mix between our last two releases but with the sound we always wanted...and the skill it took time to earn."

The result of their collaborative efforts are twelve smartly written tracks that highlight the band's musical evolution, balancing the perfect fusion of emotive rock and perilous hardcore.

"Into Hell's Mouth We March," the first song released from A New Hope, rips the album open with the group's finest mix of melody and hardcore yet. While fans will appreciate Vanna's signature mix of weighty breakdowns and uplifting choruses, they'll also hear a progression in song-writing, gang vocals and more melodic singing from guitarist/vocalist Evan Pharmakis which makes for a much more accessible sound. Anthemic tracks like the first single "Safe To Say" and "We Are Nameless" bring the goosebumps, pushing with trashing guitars and pulling with captivating melody until you are chanting alongside the dueling vocalists.

"I feel like A New Hope is a fresh start," says Pharmakis. "This is exactly where we want to be, and I couldn't be happier with the direction of our music. This is Vanna, we are finally Vanna."

As Vanna looks forward with A New Hope, they continue down their unpredictable path of self discovery, continually growing and evolving with new purpose and A New Hope.

The Devil Wears Prada: The Devil Wears Prada is an American Christian metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005.[2] They are currently signed to Ferret Records.[3] The band derives its name from an anti-materialistic mindset as stated by vocalist Mike Hranica, instead of directly refering to the the novel with the same title.

In 2005, the band released a demo entitled Patterns of a Horizon. Their first full-length album was released on August 22, 2006, entitled Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord, which featured guest vocals from Cole Wallace of Gwen Stacy. A demo song titled "HTML Rulez d00d" was placed on the band's MySpace profile on January 1, 2007. On July 11, began to stream their song "Don't Dink and Drance". Their sophomore album Plagues was released subsequently on August 21, 2007. On a recent interview with East Coast Romper, the band states their influences are Underoath and Still Remains, which was mistaken on their official website saying the exact opposite. The band performed a cover for the rap song "Still Fly", originally performed by Big Tymers, the cover song was released on the compilation album Punk Goes Crunk. Mike Hranica, the band's vocalist, also manages a clothing company called Shipshape Roolz Clothing with which he sponsors and endorses bands. Some of Shipshape's scale money goes to charities such as Skate 4 Cancer. The Devil Wears Prada began writing and recording a new album entitled "With Roots Above and Branches Below" after the Warped Tour for a planned release of May 5, 2009. Vocalist, Mike Hranica, stated that they would add a little more production to their new album."Expect a much heavier and more epic record," he stated. Keyboardist , James Baney , also stated that their new album would be more mechanical but still containing their same distinct style whereas drummer , Daniel Williams , stated that the new album would be crazier and wilder than their previous albums. In Autumn 2008, they debuted a new song off their upcoming record while on tour with Underoath, Saosin, The Famine, P.O.S., and Person L.

Last year at Warped Tour, in San Antonio, Texas, before the song "HTML Rulez D00d" was played, a small bird was on the set near the drumset. The entire "bird incident" is captured on the DVD that comes with the re-release of Plagues, as well as Youtube. The Devil Wears Prada are scheduled to tour the US and Canada from March to May with A Day to Remember, Sky Eats Airplane and Emarosa. They are also scheduled to perform at Warped Tour 2009 and will be playing on the entire tour. On March 13, they released a new song entitled Dez Moines along with a new layout on their MySpace. And on March 26, 2009, a song clip entitled "Assistant to the Regional Manager" was leaked onto Youtube. With the pre-order of their new album titled, "With Roots Above And Branches Below", you are given the option to receive several pre-orderd packages. One including a CD/DVD/Shirt deal, also it comes with a card with a code that lets you download two new unreleased songs, "Dez Moines", and "Assistant to the Regional Manager." "With Roots Above And Branches Below" was released May 5, 2009. Since the released date, the sales to the CD have been very satisfactory landing the CD #11 on the Billboard 200 for top albums.[5]

On April 22, 2009, the song "Sassafras" was released on their MySpace page. On the weekend of April 24-26, 2009, the entire album was available for listening to on before its official scheduled release date on May 5, 2009. The band launched their official website, on May 5 2009. The website is a paid fan community with access to exclusive content, advance tickets and other member only content. The song "Dez Moines" will also be a free downloadable track for the video game Guitar Hero: World Tour on May 7, as well as the song "Hey John, What's Your Name Again?" for the video game Rock Band 2 on June 30 2009. All 11 songs of their new album, With Roots Above and Branches Below, were released on their MySpace page on Saturday, May 9, 2009. They played at the Main Stage at the 2009 Warped Tour.[when?] They played at the iMatter Festival in Elmira, New York on June 13 and played Danger: Wildman for the first time in concert.
