ATREYU SIGN TO SPINEFARM / SEARCH AND DESTROY RECORDS

BAND BACK IN ACTION AFTER TAKING HIATUS IN 2010 --- NEW ALBUM, THEIR FIRST SINCE 2009, DUE OUT IN 2015
ATREYU SIGN TO SPINEFARM / SEARCH AND DESTROY RECORDS

(New York, N.Y.): When Atreyu emerged from their hiatus in 2014, the band was met with fevered excitement from fans and the metal community.
 
The band played a sold-out-in-minutes warm-up show in its native Orange County, were a featured main stage attraction at both AFTERSHOCK and KNOTFEST, released a new song "So Others May Live" as a free download for fans that immediately propelled Atreyu to trending status on social media, and closed out the year by booking a hometown Christmas show at The Observatory in the O.C.
 
Now, the band has confirmed even more good news -- its worldwide signing to the Search and Destroy Records imprint as part of the newly-announced joint venture between the label and Raw Power Management and Spinefarm Records.
 
Atreyu's new album, due out in 2015, will be released through Search and Destroy/Spinefarm.

"We're truly excited for this union," said Atreyu drummer Brandon Saller. "Signing with Spinefarm/Search & Destroy will truly allow us to create without restraint. We are looking forward to the future."
 
Raw Power's Vice President Matt Ash concurred, saying, "Raw Power is proud to be representing Atreyu for management worldwide and we're very excited to move forward with the guys in this fresh chapter of their career. 
 
"We are beyond excited to welcome Atreyu to the Spinefarm Records roster," said Spinefarm Director of A&R Darren Dalessio. "As one of the pioneering artists of the metalcore movement, it's very exciting to see this new album take shape. The new music they are crafting is nothing short of incredible, and there is a real passion and fire within the band right now that is undeniable. We couldn’t be happier to be a part of this next chapter of Atreyu's already impressive storied career. Expect great things to come in 2015!"
 
Atreyu, who were one of the key architects of the '00s American metal resurgence, last released an album in 2009 in the form of Congregation of the Damned. While Atreyu simmered on the backburner, the members did other things and flexed different creative muscles during the downtime, but returned to Atreyu earlier this summer.

36 CRAZYFISTS SIGN TO SPINEFARM RECORDS

BAND TO RELEASE LABEL DEBUT TIME AND TRAUMA IN FEBRUARY 2015
36 CRAZYFISTS SIGN TO SPINEFARM RECORDS

(New York, N.Y.): Like a bear native to the Alaskan tundra, 36 Crazyfists have emerged from a four-year recording hibernation and have signed a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records. The label welcomes the Alaska-originated band, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, to its formidable and expanding roster, which boasts the best in hard rock and heavy metal.
 
The new album, Time and Trauma, is due out in February 2015.
 
"We have found a new home at Spinefarm Records and although the label is new to us, some of the staff are old friends and we couldn't be more grateful to unleash the beast that is Time and Trauma with their help," said frontman Brock Lindow. "20 years in and it feels like Spinefarm is a killer home to hang our hats. See you all on the road in 2015!"
 
Spinefarm Senior Director of Marketing Tim Brennan echoed that sentiment, saying, "We are thrilled to have 36 Crazyfists be part of the growing Spinefarm family! They are a genuine band of brothers that has grinded for 20 years to create a truly committed fanbase. Time and Trauma is an incredible way to begin the next 20 years for the band.”
 
36 Crazyfists released their debut Bitterness the Star via Roadrunner Records in 2002. The follow up, 2004's A Snow Capped Romance, is largely considered a sleeper classic in the post-hardcore realm. The band also released several additionally beloved albums, including Rest Inside the Flames (2006) via the now-defunct DRT Entertainment, as well as The Tide and Its Takers (2008) and Collisions and Castaways through Ferret Music. Their Spinefarm debut is their first album in four years and their first since Collisions and Castaways, released in 2010.
 
To celebrate the new label partnership, the band has shared the new song "Also Am I," which is available as a stream. Listen to it here. Please post + share; grab the embed code from the Soundcloud link! 
 
This new song is merely a taste of what is to come.
 
36 Crazyfists will close out 2014 with a slew of tour dates, including a December anniversary show in their native state. Here's to 20 more years of bringing the rock.

Finland's All-Star Symphonic Rock Christmas Project Raskasta Joulua to Release 'Ragnarok Juletide'

Out on November 11
Finland's All-Star Symphonic Rock Christmas Project Raskasta Joulua to Release 'Ragnarok Juletide'

(New York, N.Y.):  Happy Holidays, headbangers! It's not going to be a "White Christmas" this year. Instead, it'll be a "Heavy Christmas."

 

Finland's annual, all-star symphonic Christmas rock project, dubbed Raskasta Joulua, which translates to "Heavy Christmas," is enjoying its 10th year running. To celebrate, the project, which tours every holiday season, will release a new studio album this year. The album, titled Ragnarok Juletide, releases on November 11 via Spinefarm Records.  Get a taste HERE.

 

But this is not just another set of ho-ho-ho-hum takes on holiday songs nor is it a collection of predictable, safe versions of seasonal jams! For the first time ever, these versions of Finnish and international Christmas classics will also be recorded in the English language.

 

Raskasta Joulua is inspired by Trans-Siberian Orchestra and the participants view the project in serious fashion, which is not always true of Christmas-themed collections. There is nothing novelty or jokey about this project or this release. Don't expect familiar holiday favorites to be given a weak makeover or merely amplified by distorted guitars that have been added to give the Christmas jams a "rock" feel. That would be a Christmas cop out.

 

Instead, the record truly and effectively captures the majesty, the wonder and the glory of the holiday season; the songs are carefully arranged and executed, with flawless musicianship and world-class vocal contributions.

 

Ragnarok Juletide will put headbangers in the most festive of moods, regardless of which metal subgenre he or she prefers, from speedy power metal to symphonic epics to dirgey doom. It's all here on this year's Ragnarok Juletide.

 

Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot, Northern Kings), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica, Northern Kings), Elize Ryd ( Amaranthe), Jarkko Ahola ( Teräsbetoni, Northern Kings), Antti Railio

(2013 Voice of Finland winner) and more lend their throats to the project.

 

"It's amazing that we're still doing this and that it has grown to these proportions," said founder/producer/arranger/guitarist Erkka Korhonen. "Every year has been bigger for us and now the tour is one of the biggest annual treks in Finland."

 

Indeed, the accompanying tour is an event and a highlight on the annual holiday calendar for fans of all age groups. The project has progressed in size and scope each and every year, in both popularity and the prestige of the participants. The concert tour now runs for more than a month before the holiday season and plays to full arenas and ice stadiums.

 

Overall, Ragnarok Juletide is the definitive collection of holiday hymns for headbangers. This is how you've always wanted to hear Christmas music, but most artists have lacked the balls to do it this way.

 

Korhonen furthered, "Even people who haven't celebrated Christmas for years have found its spirit again through what we do. Since we've expanded the vocalist lineup every year, the audience wants to hear our new vocalists on the record. It'll be fantastic to bring these songs into other countries too!"

1. "We Celebrate at Christmastime"
