America’s premier destination rock festival ROCK ON THE RANGE–which has
expanded to three days this year–will hit hard with performances from some of rock’s biggest names. The

Days Grace, Papa Roach, Cheap Trick, Bullet For My Valentine, Volbeat, Lamb Of God, Skillet, A Day

Evolution, Tracer, Beware Of Darkness, Heaven’s Basement, American Fangs, Love And Death, Gemini
Syndrome, and more.

“We’re really looking forward to returning to Rock On The Range with a batch of brand new killer Alice tunes
to play for everyone!” says Jerry Cantrell, Alice In Chains.

“Head is back!!,” says Korn’s Jonathan Davis. “Rock On The Range is going to start it all off!! Get ready,
we are going to hit it hard!!”

“Bush are thrilled to be playing Rock On The Range with such great bands,” says Bush’s Gavin Rosdale.
“We look forward to seeing you all out there.”

“This massive lineup has scratched our seven-year itch!” says Gary Spivack, co-executive producer of the
event for Right Arm Entertainment. “Getting Soundgarden for their first Ohio play in two decades and
having seminal acts Alice In Chains, Korn, Volbeat and Papa Roach return along with bands new to ROTR that
include Smashing Pumpkins and Bush, and everything in between–the spectrum of rock n roll is covered…three days of constant energy. Rock On The Range is truly where rock lives.”

Now in its seventh year, ROTR will again take place at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH on Friday, May 17, Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, 2013. With the addition of a full slate of artists performing on Friday, festival organizers are also adding a series of additional enhancements for ROTR 2013, including the new ROTR Comedy Tent.
“Our goal with ROTR is to constantly create new and interesting ways to expand the event and give even more
value to our fans,” comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the event for AEG Live. “In 2013, we’ve
added a comedy tent within the site that will be curated by The Funny Bone comedy club. Having a slate of
incredible, up-and-coming comedians to riff on the rock experience will be a great change of pace for the
weekend. The site layout is also changing dramatically in 2013 to create better event flow, to add more
interactive fan activity to the festival, and to allow even more people to experience the higher caliber of talent
on the second stage this year.”

As a special limited offer, pre-sale weekend tickets start at a low price of $89.50 (plus fees), for Stadium
GA tickets only, from Wednesday, January 30 through Thursday, January 31 at 10pm EST.

different” said Ryan Smith, General Manager of Crew Stadium, co-executive producer of Rock On The
Range. “With the creation of the special $89 pre-sale ticket and 4-pack bundle, rock fans can see over 40 of
their favorite bands for an unprecedented value.”

All That Remains Pittsburgh Pictorial

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Certainly well on their way to cracking the highest level of metal stardom is the band All That Remains. This is not the first time in the last few years that they have graced a Pittsburgh stage, and surely not to be the last, but their set was an impressively hard, fist pounding, circle trashing, metal mashup of musical bliss. Super fan friendly, hard working, and extremely talented ALT proved at Pittsburgh’s Stage AE why they just keep rising to the top.

“From cracking the Billboard Top 20, to joining the elite active rock radio fraternity, to being one of just a handful of acts to take part in the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, Ozzfest and Vans Warped Tour trifecta, the group has shattered previously-held expectations about just how far a band with roots in independent heavy metal can go – and with their fifth album, For We Are Many, it’s clear they’re only getting warmed up”.

Hanging with lead singer Phillip Labonte at Stage AE

Guitarist Oli Herbert says For We Are Many was the group’s most challenging album to date, he believes the end result was worth the fight. “I feel we have a consistently strong album that has not left even the smallest detail to chance,” he says. Vocalist Phil Labonte agrees. “When we wrote the album, it was a really good time for the band creatively,” he says. “Mike (Martin, guitars), Oli and I have written four discs together now, so when we get together, it’s very easy to communicate ideas.”

Talking to lead guitarist Oli after the show at Stage AE

While the album was again produced by Killswitch Engage guitarist and fellow Massachusetts native Adam Dutkiewicz (August Burns Red, Parkway Drive, As I Lay Dying) – who previously collaborated with the band on their second and third albums, This Darkened Heart (2004) and The Fall Of Ideals (2006) – For We Are Many sees All That Remains unafraid to experiment. One track (“Won’t Go Quietly”) includes a guitar solo featuring a talk-box; another sees the band utilize a Leslie speaker, which gives the Hammond B-3 organ its distinctive sound. “We weren’t afraid to be wrong,” Labonte says. “If we try something and don’t like it, no big deal – but if you don’t try it, you might miss something cool.”

Herbert praises Dutkiewicz for the professionalism he brought to the table. “Adam is a very gifted but demanding producer,” he says. “He can make you laugh, and then cry the next moment when he informs you of your continued failure. He does it in a joking manner, of course, but at the end of the day, nothing short of perfection is accepted under his watchful ear. This gave me comfort, in that only the best performances were used and I didn’t have to second-guess myself.”

Following the runaway success of 2008′s Overcome – which debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded two top 20 active rock hit singles, “Forever In Your Hands” and “Two Weeks” (the latter of which peaked at #6) – many bands would get complacent, but All That Remains‘ decade-long fight for survival prepared them for the long haul. “We are a band that came up the hard way, and the first seven years were pure struggle,” admits Herbert. “Once big things started happening along the way, we have been greatly appreciative.” Labonte echoes the sentiment. “It’s been over 10 years since we started ATR, and it’s amazing that in this day and age, we’re still able to do this for a living,” he says. “It’s the most amazing, crazy, annoying, fun and rewarding job I can imagine, and we’re so grateful to the people who have been here all along, and to all the new people who are just getting into the band right now.”

After laying the groundwork for the release of Overcome with a summer-long stint on the 2008 Vans Warped Tour, All That Remains – which also features drummer Jason Costa and bassist Jeanne Sagan – toured aggressively around the globe, including North American stints with underground metal heroes (In Flames, Trivium), hard rock heavyweights (Slipknot, Disturbed) and screamo titans (The Devil Wears Prada) alike. The 2009 Rockstar Mayhem Festival, meanwhile, saw the group perform alongside a lineup that ranged from Bullet For My Valentine to Slayer. In recent weeks, All That Remains has played with everyone from Avenged Sevenfold, to Limp Bizkit, to Fear Factory, further proving the diverse appeal of the band’s unique mix of muscle and melody – something Herbert believes stems from the band’s unique mix of personalities. “The five of us are radically different people with completely different views on what we like, and the challenge is to make those differences meet somewhere in the middle,” he says.

As For We Are Many proves, never has compromise sounded so compelling. The album deftly shifts from the aggression of the title track, to the memorable hooks of “The Last Time” and first single “Hold On,” to the slow groove of the chorus of “Dead Wrong,” with infectious vocal melodies and fleet fingered yet tasteful guitar solos peppered throughout. Musically, the measured and precise riffing of Herbert and Martin and Costa’s complex rhythms compel throughout, as they surely will on stage when ATR kicks off an extensive touring cycle with As I Lay Dying, to be immediately followed by a headlining tour beginning in mid-October.

Having SoundScanned a combined half-million copies of their last two albums alone, All That Remains is poised to soar to new heights, but as For We Are Many proves, they’ll do so on their terms, without compromising the ideals and independence demonstrated during the band’s first decade of existence. “Every time a band gains more success,” Herbert says, “they are expected to live up to or surpass their previous effort – but we just wanted to make a consistently good album.” Clearly, sometimes modest goals yield immodest dividends.

Even Disney Can’t Stop Machine Head in Pittsburgh

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lead singer and guitar player for Machine Head, Rob Flynn, did not hesitate a moment to give Disney a big “F. You” in Pittsburgh the other night, but he did even more so by giving the ‘Burgh the show of their lives. And Pittsburgh responded.
With full onslaught MH hit the audience hard with songs as far back as from 94’s Burn My Eyes, the masterpieces from 07’s ‘The Blackening’ and everything in-between up to the instant classic recent ‘Unto the Locust’. All this in one night with Dethklok, All That Remains, and Black Dahlia Murder was one hell of a metalheads dream line-up. And with a line-up like this, Disney bans Machine Head from House of Blues locations they own because of “violent imagery, inflammatory lyrics, and undesireable fans”?! Some corporations just don’t get it when it comes to metal. We metalheads stick together, are family, loyal to a fault, and spend all of our money on things we love. Does not sound so undesirable to PMM.
Rob Flynn, Phil Demmel, Adam Duce, and Dave McClain were insanely good in Pittsburgh at Stage AE and delivered a set that may prove one of the best of 2012.

Machine Head’s new live album “Machine Fucking Head Live” will be released on November 13th, and right now you can pre-order the 2-CD release or the Digital Special Edition (featuring 4 bonus tracks) and receive a free, immediate download of the 6-track “B-Sides & Rarities” digital EP. Do it. If nothing else to just send a message to Disney. And while they are at it, give us our Star Wars back!

DEMON HUNTER prepare limited edition vinyl release of True Defiance

Hard rock titans DEMON HUNTER are pleased to announce that a limited edition vinyl release of their lauded sixth album, True Defiance, is set to hit stores July 31st from Solid State Records.

Limited to a one-time pressing of 1000 copies, the double LP, double gatefold package features stunning large scale versions of DEMON HUNTER frontman and graphic artist Ryan Clark’s beautiful artwork – making this a must have for DEMON HUNTER fans and vinyl collectors.

Fresh off a stint headlining the Scream The Prayer tour, DEMON HUNTER is currently gearing up for another headlining run – the True Defiance Tour, with support from BLEEDING THROUGH, CANCER BATS, THE PLOT IN YOU and WILLOWS. The tour, presented by Blue Collar Press and Revolver, kicks off July 26th.

Released this past April, True Defiance made a major splash when it bowed at an impressive #36 on the Billboard 200. The debut marked the highest chart position of the band’s already storied carreer, edging out the previous best set by their 2010 album The World Is A Thorn, which debuted at #39. Further, True Defiance dominated genre charts upon its release, landing at #3 on the Billboard Hard Rock Chart, #14 on the Billboard Rock Chart and #1 on the Christian Rock Chart.

Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (ANBERLIN, EMERY) and mixed by Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM), True Defiance sees DEMON HUNTER continuing in their hard rock evolution while embracing the components that have always formed the backbone of their music: true metal, dark rock and balladry. The album marked a vital new chapter in the celebrated history of DEMON HUNTER, who are currently marking their 10th year of writing, breaking and erasing the rules of hard rock. Not ones to rest on their laurels, however, the members created an album that not only lives up to their own lofty standards, but sets a new high-water mark for what DH is capable of.

“This record is chock full of depth, from its dazzling instrumental onslaught to the great vocal approach… A clash of brutality, melody, and meaning makes this one incredible piece of art. (8/5/10)” -MIND EQUALS BLOWN
