GUINNESS WORLD RECORD BREAKING PERFORMANCE – ORIGINALLY A ONE-TIME ONLY ROCKPIT.COM LIVE GLOBAL WEBCAST EXCLUSIVE – ARRIVES AT RETAIL AS SPECIAL HOLIDAY SEASON TREAT FOR FANS

Backstage Documentary Among Bonus Features As Dec. 8 Release

Follows Nationwide Theatrical Screening

NEW YORK – Fans of multi-platinum power rockers CREED are in for a special treat this Holiday Season as CREED LIVE, the first-ever live DVD from one of the most successful bands of the past decade, hits stores and all major online retailers on December 8, 2009, the day after its nationwide theatrical screening in movie theaters.

CREED LIVE, captured during the band’s long-awaited “Full Circle” reunion tour, includes every favorite track a Creed fan would want, including “Higher,” “My Sacrifice,” “With Arms Wide Open” and “Bullets” plus new songs such as “Overcome” and “A Thousand Faces” from Full Circle, the band’s first studio effort in seven years. Full Circle recently debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts second only to Michael Jackson’s This Is It. The DVD also includes a revealing documentary that follows Creed throughout “Full Circle” tour with exclusive band interviews and behind-the-scenes, and a photo gallery with over 100 intimate photos from the Summer 2009 trek.

Directed by Daniel E. Catullo III (Rush, Nickelback, Alter Bridge, Smashing Pumpkins, Godsmack) and produced by Catullo, Lionel Pasamonte, and Peter Bowers, the 239-camera, state-of-the-art high definition shoot was filmed in front of a fanatical audience of 18,000 screaming fans in Houston at The Woodlands – Cynthia Woods Pavillion” on September 25, 2009. The band gave the performance of a lifetime, setting four World Records – including most cameras utilized in a live concert recording – and using first-time technology in a live concert environment, highlighted by the “Big Freeze” effect immortalized in the hit film “The Matrix.” The concert audio was mixed by Andy Johns (The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin) in 5.1 Surround Sound and the disc will feature Standard 5.1, Stereo and DTS audio streams.

“Making this DVD was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us,” says CREED lead singer Scott Stapp. “Daniel Catullo and his staff not only set a world record filming this, but set a whole new benchmark for filming the live show with unprecedented vision and creativity. I have never seen anything like this, nor have our fans. I am so excited to finally give CREED fans something they will never forget. I know this is something that will keep us connected at all times through the live experience. Honestly, I am blown away!”

In addition to an arsenal of High Definition TV Cameras, jibs, cranes, etc, the “Big Freeze” technology required over 200 Nikon still cameras to create and entirely new concert viewing experience in scenes which will be made available in the “Deluxe Edition” of “Creed Live” coming out in early 2010. The “Deluxe Edition” promises to be a true collector’s piece. The limited edition set will include a full feature-length film about the history of Creed, a live audio CD and special collectors’ items such as a T-shirt, poster and a backstage pass from the “Full Circle” tour”.

MACHINE HEAD drummer Dave McClain states “It’s going to be awesome to get out there and rock a full set, to mix it up night after night, and be able to do things 100% our way! It’s really just dawning on us that after almost 3 years of touring on “The Blackening” that “The Black Procession” will be the final tour of this cycle… but instead of being in wind-down mode, we’re super excited to get out there and crush it! Our fans have been asking for a full-fledged MACHINE HEAD tour and we are ready to bring it!”

Singer/Guitarist Robb Flynn adds “It’s been an amazing album cycle and we are thankful for the relentless support we have from our fans.

WATCH THE RAVEONETTES PERFORM “LAST DANCE” ON LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY

WATCH THE RAVEONETTES PERFORM “LAST DANCE” ON LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY

Just before wrapping up their extensive North American tour earlier this month, The Raveonettes treated Last Call with Carson Daly to a performance of their blissfully morose anthem “Last Dance”, the first single from their new VICE Records album In And Out Of Control. Recorded live at their show at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on November 13th, the song’s late night TV debut included a special segment on the band with an interview and other Raveonettes video footage. If you missed them on tour this time around be sure to check out the amazing performance of “Last Dance” below.

Watch The Raveonettes on Last Call with Carson Daly here:

Recent press on The Raveonettes:
“The ode to an overdosed lover, “Last Dance,” is a career statement, crowned with a chorus and bridge that 99 percent of pop confectioners never quite achieve.” – ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“In and Out of Control may be their best to date.” – NEW YORK MAGAZINE

“In And Out Of Control mostly finds the band thriving in a niche of its own creation, while contemporaries who set out in search of a broader audience have faded away” – THE ONION

“Surely one of 2009’s most brilliant pop-rock records.” – DETROIT METRO TIMES

LOAF RECORDINGS TO RELEASE YEAR-END DOMESTIC POP COMPILATION

LOAF RECORDINGS TO RELEASE YEAR-END DOMESTIC POP COMPILATION

In the five or so years that LOAF Recordings has been in existence, they’ve grown up. Since they first started providing ‘Luxury DIY’ to the masses through a multi award-winning marriage of the lo-fi sounds of breaking new musicians with the high-class aesthetics of some of the world’s most prominent image makers, LOAF has come a long way. Out of their infancy and through their adolescence, they’ve taken off our slippers and now they’re stepping out.

As 2009 comes to a close, LOAF would like to offer their appreciation for the support shown to their artists this year, among them, The Present (Rusty Santos), Dark Captain Light Captain, Omo (members of The Chap), Seeland (Broadcast/Plone), Vowels (James Rutledge), Pete Fowler and Susumu Yokota. With many more on the horizon for 2010, LOAF is now giving back (and ’tis the season after all) in the form of Domestic Pop (LOAF35), a 14-track compilation which focuses a spotlight over some like-minded artists that have caught the label’s attention over the years. They’ve hand-picked the most delicious blend of fruity flavors. Domestic Pop will be released in the US on November 30th, but you can download it for free at the link above – User: washing PW: machine.

Priding themselves on being what they call a ‘No Frills’ label – simple, artist-based presentation – LOAF has never taken the lime-light from it’s artists. Without vanity or fanfare, they’ve waited until the natural process of brewing a strong label aesthetic had infused to the point of pouring out a lovely mug of musical tea (with a slice of LOAF).

Taking note from experimental popsters such as Family Fodder, Bill Nelson and The Flying Lizards, LOAF strives to present a reconfigured outlook on Pop Music; sophisticated, full of humor and most importantly fun. That familiar DIY feeling but without the grotty warehouse vibe. This isn’t bedroom music, this is the whole house. Domestic Pop arise!

Also, please check out the below video for one of the songs on the compilation.

THE AVETT BROTHERS ANNOUNCE 2010 SPRING TOUR AUSTIN CITY LIMITS PERFORMANCE ON JANUARY 23rd

THE AVETT BROTHERS ANNOUNCE 2010 SPRING TOUR AUSTIN CITY LIMITS PERFORMANCE ON JANUARY 23rd

The Avett Brothers are thrilled to announce their 2010 spring tour dates. With their album I and Love and You debuting at number 16 on the Billboard charts and selling over 40,000 units during the first week alone, these North Carolina rockers haven’t shown any signs of slowing down.

On the heels of an extremely successful 2009 year with their critically acclaimed Rick Rubin produced album I and Love and You, and an extensive electrifying US tour, The Avett Brothers gear up to remind fans just how powerful a musical force this quartet is. Beginning their spring tour on February 4th in Athens, OH the band will travel throughout the US and end up in Cumberland, MD on May 28th (see below for full itinerary).

The Avett Brothers recently taped a special performance for PBS’ Austin City Limits. Austin City Limits is the longest-running music series in American television history. With this performance, the Avett Brothers join the celebrated ranks with music legends and innovators from every genre including the likes of Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino. This momentous performance will air January 23rd on PBS.

This year, the brothers have been wowing late night audiences across America with performances on The Late Show with David Letterman , The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and more recently, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where they debuted their second single “Slight Figure of Speech.”

The video for “Slight Figure of Speech” premieres today on the comedy site, FunnyOrDie.com, with a guest appearance by funny man Andy Daly. The video was directed by fellow North Carolina native Jody Hill, the brain behind HBO’s cult classic “Eastbound & Down”.

Paste Magazine hails I and Love and You as one of the “Best Albums of the Decade”. The Boston Globe calls The Avett Brothers’ live performance “electric energy of rock ‘n’ roll with the spirit of old-fashioned storytelling”. The Village Voice affirms they play “with the ferocity of a punk band, strumming them out with a hard locomotive chug, hopping in place, harmonizing in one moment and screaming hoarsely in the next.” Esquire Magazine proclaims, “If they are sex, they are sex with the lights on.”

ACRASSICAUDA ANNOUNCE TRIUMPHANT DEBUT EP ON VICE RECORDS, NEW HEAVY METAL IN BAGHDAD BOOK OUT NOW ONLY THE DEAD SEE THE END OF THE WAR EP OUT MARCH 9th ON VICE RECORDS, FREE DOWNLOAD FOR “GARDEN OF STONES” HEAVY METAL IN BAGHDAD: THE STORY OF ACRASSICAUDA BOOK IN STORES NOW ON VICE/MTV BOOKS

For the past six years, VICE has documented the story of Iraqi heavy metal band Acrassicauda in their struggle to stay alive and continue the band while enduring the disintegration of their own country throughout the war.

On March 9th 2010, VICE Records will release their debut EP Only The Dead See The End Of The War, recorded in 2009 following their final relocation to the US. Produced by Alex Skolnick of Testament and mixed by engineer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Hatebreed, System of a Down), Acrassicauda’s four song debut explodes with ferocious war metal.

Also in stores now is the inspirational book, Heavy Metal in Baghdad: The Story of Acrassicauda (VICE/MTV Books). Expanding on the internationally acclaimed, award-winning VBS.TV/VICE Films documentary produced and directed by Suroosh Alvi and Eddy Moretti, VICE editors Andy Capper and Gabi Sifre extensively cover the history of Acrassicauda, beginning at their youth in Iraq and culminating in their eventual relocation to the US in 2008. Featuring never-before-seen photographs, set lists, posters, and flyers, the book tells the real story of life during wartime in Baghdad.

On Heavy Metal in Baghdad and Acrassicauda:
“Whether you love or hate metal, Acrassicauda’s struggle to stay together-and alive-will rock you.” -NEWSWEEK

“While in their heart and sound they walk beside Mastodon, Slayer, and the rest of us, in their spirit and soul they are much more akin to people like Malcolm X, Bobby Sands, and all people who stand up righteously in the face of tyrants.” – SCOTT KELLY, NEUROSIS

“The guys in Acrassicauda value metal enough to face insurmountable odds just for the freedom of playing it.” -ALEX SKOLNICK, TESTAMENT
