The Kings of Quarantine came together in 2020 after a discussion between Jason and Bill about possibly collaborating on a cover song. “Just Another Victim” is the fourth installment in a series of covers that will be released throughout 2021 in an effort to bring some joy and entertainment to music lovers worldwide.

“We hope to not only put a smile on people’s faces, but also help the touring staff that have been severely affected by the pandemic”, says Jason Rockman. One hundred percent of the profits will be donated to Roadie Relief, a fundraising effort to aid qualifying Roadies who have submitted an application for financial help.

The Kings of Quarantine have no plans of slowing down, with more star-studded covers to be released in the near future!

Almost everyone you know has seen a concert that has moved them. Those productions can take over 100+ traveling crew members to set up by the time doors open.

Before and during the show they sweat and hustle to get everything ready. After the show they spend more hours erasing evidence that they were ever there at all. Many of these key players work an average of 20 hour days, then move on to the next city to make it happen all over again.

Many of these crew members, “roadies,” have been doing this as a career for decades. Some of these roadies, while experts in this field, have never had any other job experience. Since the world pandemic, well over a hundred thousand of these people are left with no income and no financial assistance.

There are no concerts or live events for the foreseeable future. At the beginning of 2020, job opportunity ceased to exist and 2021 remains uncertain. Many are unable to claim unemployment as their expert level trade skills are not recognized and they do not qualify. This on-going problem is leaving 100s of roadies without a secure livelihood.

The government has fallen short. Contacting congressmen and women, senators, and governors to raise the issue has been met with no resolution. Their replies are a formal brush-off and roadies are left hitting a dead end.

The goal with this gofundme is to offer some relief to some of the dedicated people in the roadie community. Just like you, they have families, mortgages, car payments, and day care. Commonly these workers lean on their savings between tour cycles, but those funds have run thin or run out. Please donate if you can, every little helps.

Death Ray Vision (Killswitch Engage / Shadows Fall) Launch New Song

Death Ray Vision “Get Lost Or Get Dead”
Debut 7″ Vinyl, Digipack CD, & Digital Download out May 14, 2013
Featuring Brian Fair from Shadows Fall and Mike D’Antonio from Killswitch Engage
First single “Shattered Frames” streaming at YouTube
Debut Full Length Album Produced by Dean Baltulonis (Sick Of It All, Agnostic Front) coming this Summer!
DeathRayVision-GLOGD-612x612
Current members of Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall and ex members of Overcast and Cannae have combined forces in the project DEATH RAY VISION. These veterans of the Boston metal scene play a raw brand of metallic hardcore that recaptures the energy of their old school hardcore roots infused with all they have learned and experienced as musicians over the past decade. The songs are short blasts of energy and intensity built on thrash metal rhythms and chugging guitar riffs.
The debut 5 song EP “Get Lost Or Get Dead” will be released May 14, 2013 on Bullet Tooth in 7″ Vinyl, Digipack CD, and digital download formats. The first song “Shattered Frames” can be streamed at YouTube! The track listing is:
1. Shattered Frames
2. Get Lost Or Get Dead
3. Not For Glory
4. Chainsaw Of Bees
5. Drown The Light
According to vocalist Brian Fair, “When Mike and I first met, we went to see Leeway and Breakdown play in Boston.  My love for raw, metallic hardcore began that day and the energy and insanity in that club is something that has stayed with me forever.”
After breaking their silence onstage at local Boston hardcore shows, DEATH RAY VISION entered Mad Oak Studio in MA with producer Benny Grotto to record their debut EP “Get Lost Or Get Dead”.  The recording, which the band self released, captured the raw energy and emotion of the band combined with a modern production, seamlessly bridging the gap between the past and future.  The sessions were the creative spark that inspired the band to continue writing and see how far they could push their sound.
“We started the band to have fun, there is really no other reason to do Death Ray Vision,” states bassist Mike D.  “Apparently we were having so much fun when we started writing for the 1st EP that we just kept writing and writing. All of a sudden, we had a crap load of tunes.”
While gathering material for a full length release, DEATH RAY VISION caught the attention of Bullet Tooth, a label that has a staff with very similar backgrounds and history in the heavy music scene as the band.  Having a label that embraces the same DIY ethic as the band was a necessity. Joining forces with Bullet Tooth was the perfect way for DEATH RAY VISION to reach a wider audience without having to sacrifice the independent spirit of the band.
Josh Grabelle and Bullet Tooth have the capacity to get our record out to more people then we can reach on our own,” explains Mike D. “It also doesn’t hurt that he is an old friend and is really excited about DRV. What more could you want?”
Grabelle is as enthusiastic about the signing as the band is. He’s known the members for years, almost signing Killswitch Engage in 2000. “I’m a huge fan of Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, and Overcast,” he said. “I first met Brian Fair in 1995 at an Overcast show in Erie, PA. I’ve been friends with Mike D for years as well.  Mike D told me he had started a new band and I already knew it was gonna be awesome, and it was! I was honored they thought of me and Bullet Tooth and I know we will knock it out of the park together.” The exclusive signing announcement and DRV interview is located at MetalInsider.com.
With their new label partnership in place, DEATH RAY VISION have recently completed tracking for the new LP with producer Dean Baltulonis (Sick Of It All, Agnostic Front) which will be released in the summer of 2103.
“The band is really excited to get back in the studio,” explains Fair. “These new songs have pushed our sound to a new level and we can’t wait to unleash them on the world!”
DEATH RAY VISION recalls the insanity of the old hardcore days while remaining focused on destroying the future.
 
Death Ray Vision is:
Brian Fair – Vocals
Mike D. – Bass
Pete Cortese – Guitar
Zack Wells – Guitar
Colin Conway – Drums
