About All Tomorrow’s Parties (the festival)

All Tomorrow’s Parties is an organisation based in London that has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the UK and worldwide for almost ten years. It was founded by Barry Hogan in 1999 in preparation for the first All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, the line-up of which was curated by Mogwai and took place in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands. Since then the festival has taken place every year, and continues to set itself apart from others like Reading or Glastonbury by staying intimate, un-corporate and fan-friendly. Another vital difference is that the line-ups are chosen by significant bands or artists, resulting in unpredictable and exciting events which combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre. The All Tomorrow’s Parties festival has become more successful with every passing year, moving in 2006 to a larger holiday camp. It takes place in both the UK and USA, and has been curated by the following artists:

Mike Patton & Melvins, My Bloody Valentine, Explosions In The Sky, Pitchfork Media, Portishead, Dirty Three, Sonic Youth, The Shins, Sleater Kinney, Dinosaur Jr., Devendra Banhart, Mudhoney, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Mars Volta, Vincent Gallo, Slint, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Stephen Malkmus, Mogwai, Tortoise, Shellac, Autechre, Modest Mouse and Simpsons’ creator Matt Groening. In 2007 the curators allowed festival goers to pick the lineup by organising a voting process for all ticketholders in the months running up to the event. The festival now takes place three times a year in the UK (twice in May and once in December for the ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’). In recent years the ATP organisation’s involvement in festivals has spread further; including curating stages at Barcelona’s acclaimed Primavera Sound Festival, and at Pitchfork Magazine’s Music Festival in Chicago in 2007 and 2008.

ATP: Nightmare Before Christmas curated by My Bloody Valentine takes place 4 – 6 December and Ten Years of ATP Festival takes place 11 – 13 December. www.atpfestival.com

NORMA JEANS SIGNS TO RAZOR & TIE NEW ALBUM OUT SUMMER 2010 HEADLINING EXPLOSIONS 2009 TOUR THIS WINTER

NORMA JEANS SIGNS TO RAZOR & TIE NEW ALBUM OUT SUMMER 2010 HEADLINING EXPLOSIONS 2009 TOUR THIS WINTER

Acclaimed post-hardcore heavy rockers Norma Jean signs with Razor & Tie and plans a 2010 album release. The band will headline the “Explosions 2009” US tour in late November through December. Norma Jean will play their breakthrough album Bless The Martyr and Kiss the Child in its entirety on select dates. This is the band’s first headlining trek since the Fall of last year and boasts an impressive lineup – Horse The Band, The Chariot and Arsonists Get All The Girls – with a few surprises from the powerful live band. In January Norma Jean will head into the studio to record a new album for a 2010 summer release.

Cory Brandan of Norma jean comments, “If we didn’t sign to Razor & Tie, I think we would have gone on a killing spree, with no regard for life or limb. I think for the first time in our career, upon presenting our ideas, we get to hear the word “yes” more often. It’s like discovering an unknown tribe on a distant island. Except we’re the tribe and we don’t know your language. Plus we have spears and swords and we’re cannibals. Either way, we’re insanely animated about R&T showing up and want to try on their Nike Air Jordans. ”

NORMA JEAN
Atlanta-based post-hardcore rockers Norma Jean have released four albums to date selling over 360,000 combined. The band’s last album, The Anti Mother, debuted at #29 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and received rave reviews with Alternative Press calling it “ambitious and addictive.” The album is the most furious, and yet melodic, music of their career and featured Page Hamilton of Helmet as well as a collaboration with Deftones’ frontman Chino Moreno. The Grammy nominated band has an enormous online following with over 15 million MySpace plays and 267,000 MySpace friends as well as over 15,000 Facebook friends. Norma Jean has spent the last few years on the road – headlining the mainstage on the 2008 Warped Tour, secondstage on the 2006 Ozzfest, and has toured with countless bands worldwide. Norma Jean is Cory Brandan (lead vocals/guitars), Scottie Henry (guitars), Jake Schultz (bass), Chris Day (guitars) and Chris Raines (drums). The band is managed by Tim Smith and Chris Byrnes of Blood Company and booked by Nick Storch at The Agency Group.

FANS GET A COPY OF NEW ALBUM RADITUDE AS BONUS GIFT WITH PURCHASE OF A WEEZER SNUGGIE “THE BLANKET WITH SLEEVES” IS A NATIONAL SENSATION, WITH MILLIONS SOLD AND STILL GOING STRONG

WEEZER INTRODUCES THEIR VERY OWN SNUGGIE, AVAILABLE TODAY

FANS GET A COPY OF NEW ALBUM RADITUDE AS BONUS GIFT WITH PURCHASE OF A WEEZER SNUGGIE
“THE BLANKET WITH SLEEVES” IS A NATIONAL SENSATION, WITH MILLIONS SOLD AND STILL GOING STRONG

Alternative rock band Weezer and Allstar Products Group, marketer and distributor of the Snuggie, America’s favorite “blanket with sleeves,” have joined forces to create the official Weezer Snuggie. It will be launched today and will bear the band’s trademark “Weezer” logo. This latest addition to the Snuggie collection will allow fans of the band to stay warm while keeping their hands free to rock out. And rock out they will; fans who purchase a Weezer Snuggie blanket will also receive a copy of the band’s brand-new album, Raditude, as a bonus gift.

The Weezer Snuggie will be available for $29.99 for purchase online. It arrives around the same day as the band’s latest album, Raditude. This new offering sees the band trying a brand-new approach, choosing to collaborate with a wide variety of musicians, songwriters and producers. The result of this collaborative effort is a collection of songs that amplifies Weezer’s musical trademarks- deep-digging pop hooks and raucous rock riffs- while at the same time breaking new ground for the band. Raditude features appearances by Lil’ Wayne, Jermaine Dupri and even a host of traditional Indian musicians.

From the subtly ironic but club-worthy “Can’t Stop Partying,” to the gleefully lascivious classic arena-rocker “The Girl Got Hot,” to the sleek electro groove of “I’m Your Daddy,” to the slow-building, anthemic “Love is the Answer” and the clanking, Motown-flavored “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To,” Raditude, like Weezer, is full of thrilling surprises. As lead singer Rivers Cuomo says, “It sounds like a roomful of people having a great time.”

The Snuggie blanket was featured at New York Fall Fashion Week in September, where models graced the catwalk in some of the latest Snuggie designs, such Snuggie Wild Side in zebra and leopard print, Snuggie Soft Rose for breast cancer awareness and limited edition Snuggadelic Snuggie in funky tie-dye print.

The Snuggie blanket is more than a fun idea, impulse buy or kitschy TV ad; it is a truly innovative and ultimately functional product. It’s made of lightweight, soft fleece that keeps people of all ages warm indoors and out, with large, roomy sleeves allowing for free movement. It answers a basic need shared by many – staying warm and comfortable while having hands free to do what you please – channel surf, snack, read a book… or crank up the volume on your favorite Weezer song.

About Allstar Products Group
Allstar Products Group, LLC is a leading direct response and consumer products company making quality products available to U.S. and international consumers through direct response television as well as internet, direct mail and retail channels. Snuggie™ is a trademark of ASM.

SHADOW GALLERY NEW ALBUM “DIGITAL GHOSTS” IN STORES TODAY GUITARIST GARY WEHRKAMP SPEAKS ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM

SHADOW GALLERY NEW ALBUM “DIGITAL GHOSTS” IN STORES TODAY GUITARIST GARY WEHRKAMP SPEAKS ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM

SHADOW GALLERY, widely considered a major and innovative force within the realms of progressive rock and metal, have returned with their 6th studio effort “Digital Ghosts”. Following up 2005’s “Room V” as well as the “Prime Cuts” compilation release of material from previous albums in 2007, “Digital Ghosts” will be released on October 26th, 2009 in Europe and November 3rd, 2009 in North America via InsideOutMusic. The band is also excited to announce that they filmed a video last month and it will be released in the coming weeks.

Lead guitarist and bassist Gary Wehrkamp had the following to say about the release of “Digital Ghosts” : “This is a day we have been looking forward to and I know we are not alone in saying that. Coming off the tragedies of last year, we forged ahead determined to give our very best in every way we could. Recording is a labor of love, and we really enjoyed completing this record. The band is thrilled to present our sixth release to our patient friends in America.”

After the tragic passing of lead singer Mike Baker in October 2008, “Digital Ghosts” introduces new lead singer Brian Ashland and not only sees the entire band once again sharing additional vocal duties but also features guest vocal appearances by Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) and Clay Barton (Suspyre) to compliment the release. With “Digital Ghosts”, SHADOW GALLERY’s members Brendt Allman, Carl Cadden-James, Gary Wehrkamp, new addition Brian Ashland and returning drummer Joe Nevolo (who appears on two songs of the record) have focused their powerful energies on creating a seamless blend of progressive, metal, and symphonic rock as a transcendent work of musical art that advances the boundaries of these genres into new directions.

The track-listing for the album reads as follows:

SHADOW GALLERY – “Digital Ghosts”:

1. With Honor

2. Venom

3. Pain

4. Gold Dust

5. Strong

6. Digital Ghost

7. Haunted

MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA TO PREMIERE “SHAKE IT OUT” VIDEO ON MYSPACE ON NOVEMBER 6 AT 3PM EST

MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA TO PREMIERE “SHAKE IT OUT” VIDEO ON MYSPACE ON NOVEMBER 6 AT 3PM EST

Columbia Records and Favorite Gentlemen are excited to announce the video premiere for Manchester Orchestra’s second single, “Shake It Out,” on MySpace. The premiere will last for 48 hours and begins on November 6 at 3pm EST. It can be seen at www.myspace.com/manchesterorchestra. The video is a brilliant homage to 1980’s action films (tongue firmly planted in cheek).

The powerfully epic “Shake It Out,” the second single from Manchester Orchestra’s sophomore album, Mean Everything To Nothing, was just sent to Modern Rock radio and was met with great excitement. “I’ve Got Friends,” the first single from Mean Everything To Nothing spent 26 weeks on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and reached the #8 spot at its peak. Alternative Press recently named the song as one of the top 100 songs of the decade.

Manchester Orchestra just finished hugely succesful tours with Brand New as well as Silversun Pickups. They will be joining Brand New and Glassjaw for their very special hometown show at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY, on November 28th. They are off to Europe in November to open for Biffy Clyro and to do headline dates in Germany.

Upon their return, the band will be partnering with rock radio stations for the following holiday shows in December:

Official ‘Somebody’s Gonna Miss Us’ Release Party Set For November 9 In Philadelphia At World Café

Image Entertainment, Inc. will release THE STARTING LINE’S first-ever live concert CD, film and documentary DVD titled SOMEBODY’S GONNA MISS US on November 10 on a 2-disc set. The group will throw an official release party on Monday, November 9 at the World Café in Philadelphia (3025 Walnut Street, 8:00pm). For the event, THE STARTING LINE will screen portions of the DVD and fans can expect live performances from the band’s latest projects including Person L (Kenny Vasoli), Cheap Seats (Tom Gyskiewicz) and The Traded Series (Mike Golla).

Formed in 1999 in Churchville, PA outside Philadelphia, THE STARTING LINE–KEN VASOLI (vocals, bass), MATT WATTS (guitar), TOM GYSKIEWICZ (drums), MIKE GOLLA (guitar), BRIAN SCHMUTZ (keyboards)–have been revered for their invigorating blend of punk-pop, indie rock and emo earnestness which garnered the group accolades throughout their career. Rolling Stone hailed the quartet’s “fresh-faced punk ballads…” (5/2005) and Alternative Press praised their 2007 Direction album: “Vasoli & Co. prove they’re more than capable of crafting flawless pop-punk songs… (8/2007)” while Spin commended the group’s “surging guitar anthems…” (8/2007).

“I feel like this Live CD/DVD will give people some real insight to where we were as a band when we decided to take a much needed ‘hiatus,’” explains guitarist MATT WATTS. “It was certainly interesting for me to watch all of us give our individual thoughts on our career, life after TSL and see our own differing personalities from that perspective.”

The hour-long documentary DVD chronicles THE STARTING LINE during their preparation for and journey on their 2008 U.S. tour which culminates in their thunderous and heartfelt Bamboozle performance on May 4. Through intimate and honest interviews with the band, friends and family fans will get a glimpse into the inner workings of the group which after eight years together decided to take a hiatus in 2008 to pursue other projects. The full-length concert DVD and live CD features the band’s stunning performance in their hometown of

Philadelphia at the Electric Factory on April 18, 2008. The live CD and DVD boasts 18 live songs and performances including fan favorites “Direction,” Island,” “Best of Me,” “Bedroom Talk,” “Something Left to Give” and many more; see the full track list of live performances below.
