    How we all doing today? This band has been described as the "Dark Linkin Park", and rightly so, Dead By Sunrise Got it's start when LP vocalist Chester Bennington found himself writing darker material than he would have had on a Linkin Park album. Channeling these songs into a side-project Bennington brought on guitarist Ryan Shuck, and drummer Elias Andra, together they put out DBS's first and only album to date: "Out Of Ashes". Bennington has mentioned potential for Dead By Sunrise's second release, but as a result of Linkin Park's new sound and direction selcting songs for LP and DBS has become more challenging. Hopefully we will see more from this group in the future!

    Off "Out Of Ashes" comes today's song "Fire"

    Happy Saturday! Kick back, sleep in, and rock out to our song of the day!
    Nashville hard-rock band Red (also RED or R3D) got together when twin brothers Anthony Armstrong (guitarist) and Randy Armstrong (bassist) teamed up with lead vocalist Michael Barnes, as well as drummer Andrew Hendrix. Red released their first album "End Of Silence" in 2006 and not long after, parted ways with Hendrix and brought on Joe Rickard as their drummer. They released "Innocence & Instinct" in 2009, and "Until We Have Faces" early this year. Red has toured with many major names in rock such as Papa Roach, Korn's Brian (Head) Welch, Buckcherry, Puddle Of Mudd and many others. They have also announced a European tour in April 2012!

    Today's song is a single off their 2009 release "Innocence & Instinct" that peaked at #9 on the US Main charts.

    Oh boy, Monday has visited us again...greeat. While you're surviving the beginning of another work(or school)-week check out our song of the day!

    Today's band got its start as a high-school punk band under the name "Plan B" founded by Tim Skipper, A.J. Babcock, and Nate Rothacker in 1996. Two years later they lost drummer Rothacker, brought on Colin Rigsby, and changed the name to "No Tagbacks". However, the name "No Tagbacks" changed once again to the name they now perform under: "House Of Heroes" though the band lineup remained the same. After recording demos in Chris Lundquist's home studio LundquistAudio (previously Lunkhead Studio), House Of Heroes produced their first album "What You Want Is Now" in 2003 under Vanishing Point Records. Lineup shuffled again as bassist A.J Babcock left to work on a side project with his wife, and was replaced by Jared Rigsby. Babcock rejoined the band and Jared stayed on as the band's second guitarist. Finally, in 2009, Babcock stoppped touring and was replaced by bassist Eric "Do The Dew" Newcomer. Babcock continues to be involved with songwriting and recording. After their release of "What You Want Is Now" House Of Heroes was signed to Gotee Records under which their next six albums were released. Their 2005 release "The End Is Not The End" made it to number 2 on Amazon's "Today's Top MP3 Artists" beating out The Black Eyed Peas, Dave Matthews Band, Green Day, and other major artists! Their main influences are The Beatles, Queen, Bruce Springsteen, The Clash, and Muse.

    12/7/11 Pearl Harbor Day (US)
    Don't forget to take a moment to remember our military men and women. They sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

    You may have noticed there was no song for yesterday.. :( ..We had some technical difficulties here on our end, but we've got 'em fixed and we are ready to rock!

    Today's song comes from a band out of South Africa formed in 1999 under the name Saron Gas. Saron Gas started out basically the same as many other bands: playing shows at nightclubs, parties, and anywhere else people would listen. In 2002 they were signed to Wind-Up Records and changed their name to something more recognizable: Seether. Seether would release five more albums under this label, most notably their 2011 release "Holding On To Strings Better Left To Fray" which hit #2 on the US Billboard 200 charts and #1 on the US Rock Album charts! Seether's members include vocalist/guitarist Shaun Morgan, bassist Dale Stewart, and drummer John Humphrey.

    Today's song coming off "Holding On To Strings Better Left To Fray" is "Tonight"!

    12/7/11 Pearl Harbor Day (US)
    Don't forget to take a moment to remember our military men and women. They sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

    You may have noticed there was no song for yesterday.. :( ..We had some technical difficulties here on our end, but we've got 'em fixed and we are ready to rock!

    Today's song comes from a band out of South Africa formed in 1999 under the name Saron Gas. Saron Gas started out basically the same as many other bands: playing shows at nightclubs, parties, and anywhere else people would listen. In 2002 they were signed to Wind-Up Records and changed their name to something more recognizable: Seether. Seether would release five more albums under this label, most notably their 2011 release "Holding On To Strings Better Left To Fray" which hit #2 on the US Billboard 200 charts and #1 on the US Rock Album charts! Seether's members include vocalist/guitarist Shaun Morgan, bassist Dale Stewart, and drummer John Humphrey.

    Today's song coming off "Holding On To Strings Better Left To Fray" is "Tonight"!

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the most anticipated day of the week (except of course, Saturday) : Friday! You’ve survived this long, now just hang in there, turn up our song of the day, and hope the day ends quickly.

    A few days back we brought you a track from Linkin Park frontman +Chester Bennington side-project Dead By Sunrise, today we’re bringing you a little something off the side-project of another Linkin Park member, Mike Shinoda! “Fort Minor” is Mike Shinoda’s stage name when he performs with underground hip-hop group Styles Of Beyond, made up of MCs Ryan Patrick Maginn (Ryu) and Takbir Bashir (Tak), DJ Cheapshot, and producer Vin Skully. Following Shinoda’s split with his college band Mother’s Venom in 2004, he hooked up with Styles Of Beyond and released “The Rising Tied” in 2005 under +Warner Bros. Records “The Rising Tied” is Fort Minor’s only release to date, and in late 2006 Shinoda announced that Fort Minor would be going on hiatus to allow him to focus more on Linkin Park. It is uncertain whether or not they will re-enter the studio in the future.

    Today’s song off “The Rising Tied”:

    Happy Saturday! Anyone catching the FCS Playoffs today? Whatever you’re doing we’ve got the tunes to keep you going all day!

    Today we’re bringing you music from another group out of the Orange County CA area! The band formed in 1996 by Jared (Dirty J) Watson and vocalist/guitarist Dustin (Duddy B) Bushnell. The two met at a party their Freshman year in High School where Watson heard Bushnell’s rap demo and invited him to work on a project together. At this time Bushnell was part of a punk-rock group and Watson had no music experience. The two began playing in Bushnell’s garage blending reggae and punk sounds, and the Dirty Heads was born! Percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa, and bassist David Foral came into the band later to further define the sound. The band was signed to +Warner Bros. Records but the band left due to artistic differences, fortunately the band was able to retain their master recordings which would make up the majority of their release “Any Port In A Storm” their only release to date. The Dirty Heads have toured the U.S. multiple times with bands such as O.A.R., 311, Pepper, Kottonmouth Kings, Unwritten Law, Matisyahu and Sublime with Rome.

    Today’s song,a single off “Any Port In A Storm”, charted at #1 on the US Rock, and US Alt Charts, it was also featured on MTV show Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory

    Hope you’re all taking it easy today, chill out and check out the Song Of The Day!

    Acoustic outfit Allysonhymn formed by guitarist Brandon Mills and drummer Josh Oliver in 1999 before taking on a more rock-oriented sound. Josh Oliver’s brother Caleb, a bassist/lead singer, joined the band, as well as guitarist Chris Clonts, who gave the band a “new sound and purpose”. They began touring with names such as Puddle Of Mudd, Breaking Benjamin, Crossfade, and Adema, it was at this time that the band decided to shed the name “Allysonhymn” and changed it to Decyfer Down. Signed to Fairtrade Records (formerly INO Records) they released their first album “End Of Grey” in 2006, one of five singles “Fight Like This” was featured in a UFC promo that aired on the front page of Youtube for 12 hours! In 2008 it was announced that Caleb Oliver would be leaving the band to deal with issues in his personal life, T.J Harris formerly of Fighting Instinct joined a few months later. In May 2009 their second studio album, “Crash” was released, it debuted at #66 on the US Billboard charts and stayed on the chart for three weeks before falling off. They have confirmed that a third album will drop in late 2012!

    Off 2008 release “Crash” comes today’s song “Fading”:

    Alright! Party’s over. Back to work guys!.....What?!?...just because it’s Monday doesn’t mean party’s over! Check it out..we’ve got some more music for you guys today!

    Indie rock group Number One Gun, made up of Jeff Schneeweis, Christopher Keene, Jordan Mallory, and Trevor Sellers, formed in 2002. In 2006, following the release of three albums together it was announced on their MySpace page (yes, people still used MySpace then) that the members, despite the band’s growing success, would be devoting their energies to various other musical projects. Schneeweis formed a new band called North Pole Project, Keene and Mallory formed Surrogate, and Sellers went to play bass with Armed For Apocalypse. It was thought that this would be the last of the guys from Chico CA, and in a way it was. However, Number One Gun was reincarnated when Schneeweis renamed North Pole Project, Number One Gun and signed the band to Indie label Tooth And Nail Records. This new Number One Gun would become the manifestation of his solo project. In 2008 they released an album bearing the band’s previous name “The North Pole Project”, and the band’s latest release of “To The Secrets And Knowledge” in 2010 is a continuation of Schneeweis’ solo work.

    Off of “To The Secrets And Knowledge” comes today’s song, “Forest”

    How’s everybody holding up? Hope everyone’s doing awesomely! We have some big news: we are opening up for new bands to get in touch with us and possibly get featured! Head over to our “About” section to find out how! We’re looking forward to hearing your stuff!

    Today’s band was formed in 1996 in San Diego CA under the name Chin Up, after playing a few shows the band was snapped up by producer Charlie Peacock and signed to his indie record label Re:think Records under their current name: Switchfoot.Band frontman Jon Foreman says that this name came from the surfer background shared by the band, to switch feet means to take a stance on the board facing the other direction, for the band that symbolized a different approach to music and life. Re:think records was bought out by major Christian music label Sparrow Records before Switchfoot could release their first album, and the band’s intentions of being marketed outside the Contemporary Christan Music scene were put on hold. As a result, they were marketed almost solely toward Christian radio and Christian stores, a time described by Jon Foreman as “a time when we lost half of who we were”. In 2003 Switchfoot was signed to Columbia Records/SonyBMG, under this label they released their major debut: “The Beautiful Letdown”. “The Beautiful Letdown” sold 2.6 million copies and gained mainstream success particularly on the songs “Dare You To Move” and “Meant To Live”. This album also showcased the band’s more layered sound, mostly thanks to the work of keyboardist Jerome Fontamillas.
    In 2005 the band went on to release “Nothing Is Sound” with new guitarist Drew Shirley who gave the album an edgier, guitar-heavy sound, and the people liked this edgier Switchfoot: the album reached #3 on the Billboard charts, an all-time high for the band. Bassist Tim Foreman attracted attention to himself by speaking out against Sony’s “copy protection” (identified as a trojan and rootkit by many anti-viruses) and posted an extensive work-around on the band’s message board, however, Sony quickly deleted the post. The band released “Oh! Gravity” in 2006 this album,the last album preceding the split from Columbia Records, reached #18 on Billboard charts and #1 on iTunes “Top Albums” chart. The band then broke from Columbia Records, and formed their own label: lowercase people. Thier 2008 release “Hello Hurricane” was released under lowercase people and was licenced to Atlantic Records to assure that the album would reach more people. Their most recent album “Vice Verses”, dropped earlier this year, reached #8 on Billboard and according to Tim Foreman featured some of his brother’s best lyrical work.

    Today’s song, off of “The Beautiful Letdown”, was inspired by T.S Eliot’s poem “Hollow Men”

    How’s everybody holding up? Hope everyone’s doing awesomely! We have some big news: we are opening up for new bands to get in touch with us and possibly get featured! Head over to our “About” section to find out how! We’re looking forward to hearing your stuff!

    Today’s band was formed in 1996 in San Diego CA under the name Chin Up, after playing a few shows the band was snapped up by producer Charlie Peacock and signed to his indie record label Re:think Records under their current name: Switchfoot.Band frontman Jon Foreman says that this name came from the surfer background shared by the band, to switch feet means to take a stance on the board facing the other direction, for the band that symbolized a different approach to music and life. Re:think records was bought out by major Christian music label Sparrow Records before Switchfoot could release their first album, and the band’s intentions of being marketed outside the Contemporary Christan Music scene were put on hold.

    Alright! How we all doing? Break out the good speakers because we’ve got a new song headed your way!

    Out of Southtown SanDiego CA, comes Nu Metal group P.O.D. (Payable On Death)! The band started out in1991 when friends Marcos Curiel and Wuv Bernardo started getting together for jam sessions and playing Metallica and Slayer covers at keg parties under the name Eschatos. Bernardo then invited cousin Sonny Sandoval to join the band following the death of Sandoval’s mother. Before the addition of Sandoval, Curiel had been playing guitar and Bernardo had been playing drums with out a vocalist for the band. Because of this, Sandoval came on as the lead vocalist. Eschatos then gained the talents of bassist Traa Daniels in 1994 after they lost previous bassist Gabe Portillo, and changed their name to current name P.O.D. The band was signed to Rescue Records, a project of Bernardo’s father Noah Bernardo Sr., under this label the band released three albums: “Snuff The Punk”, “Brown”, and “Payable On Death Live”. After the release of “Payable On Death Live” they were offered a contract with Essential Records, but declined, shortly after this the band was signed to Atlantic Records. P.O.D then released an EP titled “The Warriors” as a transitional recording from Rescue Records to Atlantic Records. In 2003 Marcos Curiel decided to leave the band due to his side project “The Accident Experiment”, though he argued that he was “kicked out” of the band. Sandoval, Bernardo, and Daniels were devastated at Curiel’s departure and considered disbanding at this time, but in the end they decided to hold together and find a new guitarist, Jason Truby was then recruited by the band. In 2005 the band released their sixth studio album “Testify”, whose first single “Goodbye For Now” contained a vocal tag from then unknown singer (get this!) Katy Perry (yes, “that” Katy Perry!). In 2006 they announced that they had left Atlantic records, it was also announced that Truby decided to leave...the same day that Curiel had asked to rejoin the band! Early in 2007, rejoined by their original guitarist, the band signed a deal with INO Records and in 2008 released “When Angels And Serpents Dance” under this label. They played on the 2008 “Music As A Weapon” tour in Australia, and booked tour dates in South America, after this tour it was announced that they would be taking a hiatus from touring. They have a new release planned for sometime in 2012, and have now been signed to Razor & Tie Records.

    Today’s song, mentioned above, was the first single off “Testify”. Check it out!

    We’re about ten days out from Christmas! We want to give you a heads up that we will be taking a little break time for Christmas starting Dec. 22 and ending after the 1st of the year, but no worries! We’ll be leaving you guys a whole playlist to rock out to in the mean time! Until then we figure it’s time to bring you at least one Christmas song..only one though, for the whole year we promise!

    Founded in 2003 while members were attending high school, August Burns Red’s practice sessions began in the basement of drummer Matt Greiner’s house on his farm in Lancaster Pennsylvania. After playing local shows in and around Lancaster, the band released their first EP “Life Looks Fragile After All” with CL Records. Original vocalist Jon Hershey quit the band in 2004, and was replaced by James McManness the same year. After several months of playing with their new lead singer, the band was signed to Solid State Records in 2005! Meanwhile Hershey went and formed instrumental post-rock group Bells. August Burns Red released “Thrill Seeker”, their first full-length album, in late 2005 and drummer Matt Greiner was endorsed by Truth Custom Drums. In 2006 vocalist McManness left the band as well after being exhausted by constant touring, and was replaced by Jake Luhrs, their third and current vocalist. The band also lost bassist Jordan Tuscan due, once again, to extensive touring. He was replaced with mutual friend of the band Dustin Davidson, they went on to release their second studio album “Messengers”. In 2008 they toured the US and Canada with As I Lay Dying, and immediately followed this tour with a tour of Europe. After the 2009 release of their third studio album “Constellations” they did a promotional tour of the US with Blessthefall and an Australian tour with Parkway Drive, they also toured with Underoath and Emery. They booked another Aussie tour in 2010 alongside Megadeth, Dropkick Murphys, and NOFX. Their third and most recent release “Leveler” dropped this summer at #11 on the Billboard 200 charts, and they took the main stage at the Vans Warped Tour 2011.

    Okay so we told you that we’d be bringing you a Christmas song right? But we’ve been telling you about a metalcore band so what’s the deal? Today’s song is a cover of the classic Christmas song “Carol Of The Bells”.

    Hey guys! Wow Friday already? It seems like this week went by so fast, anyone else feel like that? Anyway, we’ve got some more music for you guys!

    Making a name for themselves in the early 2000’s with their fast, hard sound with heavily distorted guitar, lead guitar solos, and rapid changes in time signatures, Thrice got their start in Irvine CA in 1998. The band was started by High School friends Dustin Kensrue (guitar/vocals) and Teppei Teranishi (guitarist) after playing in local band Chapter 11,they branched out on their own, bringing on Teranishi’s friend Eddie Breckenridge to play bass, who brought his brother Riley, a drummer. However, they didn’t have a name until right before their first show. Pressed for time and desparate for a name they chose the name ‘Thrice’, the name was supposed to be temporary but they began to gain fans under the name and so they were forced to keep the name. They then self-released an EP called “First Impressions”, they only made 1,000 copies and the band members sold them out of their cars. Then, working with Death By Stereo’s Paul Miner they recorded 12 tracks and in 2000 they released “Identity Crisis” on Greenflag Records, they donated some proceeds of this album to charity. Their popularity grew and they attracted the attention of Hopeless/Sub City’s Records’ Louis Posen, who signed the band in 2001, re-released “Identity Crisis”, and booked tour spots for the band alongside Samiam, Hot Rod Circuit, and Midtown. Thrice then began recording for their debut release on Hopeless/Sub City, “The Illusion Of Safety” which dropped in 2002, following this release the band went on tour with Further Seems Forever and Face To Face, once again the band donated a portion of the album’s proceeds, this time choosing a youth shelter in LA and the label matched their donations. This album earned them the attention of several other labels and eventually signed with Island Records, who agreed to match the band’s charitable donations in the same way Hopeless/Sub City had. The band the did a tour with Coheed And Cambria before returning to the studios. In 2003 they released “The Artist In The Ambulance” and donated to a financial aid program for breast cancer patients. The band did another tour, once again with Coheed And Cambria, and with band Dashboard Confessional, they also got a spot on the Van’s Warped Tour. In 2005 they released soul-searching album “Vheissu” the proceeds were donated to novelist Dave Egger’s charity that promotes writing in underprivilaged children and teens, in return Egger designed the album art for the band. Starting in 2006 the band released “The Alchemy Index”, what started out as a series of EPs blossomed into a full-length album that they released after being signed to Vagrant Records, they had left Island because of a difference of opinion. During this time they toured with Mewithoutyou and, later that fall, Rise Against and Gaslight Anthem. In 2009 they released a more upbeat album “Beggars”, and released Major/Minor this fall. It was recently announced that the band will be “taking a break” after their 2012 tour, but they assured that the band was not breaking up.

    Today’s song is the title track of their 2003 release “The Artist In The Ambulance”:

Pressed for time and desparate for a name they chose the name ‘Thrice’, the name was supposed to be temporary but they began to gain fans under the name and so they were forced to keep the name. They then self-released an EP called “First Impressions”, they only made 1,000 copies and the band members sold them out of their cars. Then, working with Death By Stereo’s Paul Miner they recorded 12 tracks and in 2000 they released “Identity Crisis” on Greenflag Records, they donated some proceeds of this album to charity. Their popularity grew and they attracted the attention of Hopeless/Sub City’s Records’ Louis Posen, who signed the band in 2001, re-released “Identity Crisis”, and booked tour spots for the band alongside Samiam, Hot Rod Circuit, and Midtown. Thrice then began recording for their debut release on Hopeless/Sub City, “The Illusion Of Safety” which dropped in 2002, following this release the band went on tour with Further Seems Forever and Face To Face, once again the band donated a portion of the album’s proceeds, this time choosing a youth shelter in LA and the label matched their donations. This album earned them the attention of several other labels and eventually signed with Island Records, who agreed to match the band’s charitable donations in the same way Hopeless/Sub City had. The band the did a tour with Coheed And Cambria before returning to the studios. In 2003 they released “The Artist In The Ambulance” and donated to a financial aid program for breast cancer patients. The band did another tour, once again with Coheed And Cambria, and with band Dashboard Confessional, they also got a spot on the Van’s Warped Tour. In 2005 they released soul-searching album “Vheissu” the proceeds were donated to novelist Dave Egger’s charity that promotes writing in underprivilaged children and teens, in return Egger designed the album art for the band. Starting in 2006 the band released “The Alchemy Index”, what started out as a series of EPs blossomed into a full-length album that they released after being signed to Vagrant Records, they had left Island because of a difference of opinion. During this time they toured with Mewithoutyou and, later that fall, Rise Against and Gaslight Anthem. In 2009 they released a more upbeat album “Beggars”, and released Major/Minor this fall. It was recently announced that the band will be “taking a break” after their 2012 tour, but they assured that the band was not breaking up.

    Today’s song is the title track of their 2003 release “The Artist In The Ambulance”:

    Hey guys! Wow Friday already? It seems like this week went by so fast, anyone else feel like that? Anyway, we’ve got some more music for you guys!

    Making a name for themselves in the early 2000’s with their fast, hard sound with heavily distorted guitar, lead guitar solos, and rapid changes in time signatures, Thrice got their start in Irvine CA in 1998. The band was started by High School friends Dustin Kensrue (guitar/vocals) and Teppei Teranishi (guitarist) after playing in local band Chapter 11,they branched out on their own, bringing on Teranishi’s friend Eddie Breckenridge to play bass, who brought his brother Riley, a drummer.

    Canadian band Thousand Foot Krutch (TFK) is self-releasing their new album "The End Is Where We Begin"!

    Happy Saturday guys! Everybody chilling out? Anything cool going on for Winter break?
    Whether you’re going Snowboarding, Ice Fishing, or hanging out with family we’ve got some music for you!

    What originally began as a High School band under the name Oddball, vocalist Trevor McNevan’s musical projects eventually gave birth to NuMetal group Thousand Foot Krutch. Their first album “That’s What People Do” was released the same year as they formed the band, in 1999. This indie release gained them notariety in Canada, being voted to the top 25 bands of North America by 7 Ball Magazine, and the #1 band of the millennium by an Ontario radio station. In 2000 they released “Set It Off” which garnered label attention after selling 85,000 copies out of their van. They did extensive touring throughout North America, touring with Finger Eleven Sum41 and others. Three Days Grace, a cover band at this time was a regular support act of TFK as well. In 2003 the band signed to Seattle-based record company +Tooth & Nail Records and released their second full-length album “Phenomenon”, the album sold 200,000 copies making it one of the best selling albums in Tooth & Nail’s history! In 2005 they released “The Art Of Breaking” this album took a break from the hip-hop sound and moved into a more heavy, alternative sound, the band did extensive touring to promote this album. TFK went on to release “The Flame In All Of Us” in late 2007, the sound of this album continued to change as they moved toward a more mainstream metal sound. They then toured with Decyfer Down, P.O.D, Chevelle, 10 Years, Daughtry, and Red. Their next album, titled “Welcome To The Masquerade” was announced in 2009 during a live video chat with Trevor McNevan. In a music video TFK was seen with a new touring guitarist, replacing Nick Baumhardt, it was revealed that this new guitarist was +Ty Dietzler ex-guitarist of Christian metal group The Letter Black. However, it appeared that Dietzler’s arrival was to be short-lived because in early 2011 he announced that he would be leaving the band, despite this announcement later that month it was released that he would in fact be staying with the band. Since August of this year, Thousand Foot Krutch has been in recording for a new album, “The End Is Where We Begin”, this album is being produced independently and is set to be available in March of 2012!


    Today’s song is the title track off their album "Phenomenon":

    What’s up? Anyone here gone to any awesome concerts lately? Love to hear about it!

    Alright! Today’s band was started in 2004 by brothers Michael and Shawn Cavallo when a major label offered them a record deal. They were signed to Butterfly Music Group out of Nashville TN but later that year, members of Butterfly branched out to form indie label Whiplash Records in Spring Hill TN, the Cavallo boys and session bassist Lucas Wright signed to this label under the name Manic Drive. Manic Drive released their first album “Reason For Motion” in 2005, the album was distributed by Infinity Music Group through a licencing contract with Whiplash. Their success with this album gave them the opportunity to tour with +Tooth & Nail Records’s Seventh Day Slumber, this tour led Manic Drive to sell 10,000 copies of “Reason For Motion” without the aid of a major label. In 2007 there was anticipation for a sophmore release as Manic Drive took to the studio with new bassist Tyler Dolynsky and new drummer Travis Blackmore. In late 2007 they released “Reset And Rewind”. In 2008 they were invited to join Pillar and Wavorly on the “For The Love Of The Game” tour. In 2009 they re-released “Reset And Rewind” re-naming it “Blue” and adding a few new tracks such as “Walls”, “Music”, and “Rain”. In the fall of 2009 they were invited to join legendary ‘80s metal band Stryper on their “25th Anniversary” tour! They played venues from coast-to-coast in the US and Canada including Jacksonville Theater, House Of Blues, and both Disney parks. During shows Stryper guitarist Oz Fox would get onstage with Manic Drive and play guitar alongside Michael Cavallo. In 2011 they dropped fourth release “Epic” and toured with international christian group The Newsboys. They are booking shows all through 2012 and it has been announced that lead vocalist Shawn Cavallo opened his own recording studio, Sonic Sound Studio in his native Ontario!

    Today’s song, off “Blue” is “Walls”

    Alright guys! How we all doing? Looking forward to some new music hopefully!

    Freshman 15 was formed in 2001 in Mississippi and released two albums independently before being signed to the now disbanded Flicker Records. At the time of this signing the band decided to change their name because they “ didn’t want to be thirty years old and saying I’m in Freshman 15, I have three kids!”. The name they chose was the the name of a haunted house in West Point Mississippi, Wavorly. Their debut release on Flicker was “Conquering The Fear Of Flight” released the summer of 2007. Then, in Spring of 2008 they were dropped from Flicker Records, only months before Flicker itself dissolved. Despite the hardships of losing label association, Wavorly decided to press on and continued to demo and write. The band was in the middle of a stressful place when the songs for their new release started to be written, these songs gave, according to bassist Matt Lott “a new spirit to the band” that helped them hold the group together. Along with the difficulty of losing their label, Wavorly also endured the departure of drummer and founding member Jamie Hays in 2010, who left to pursue outreach work in the Czech Republic. Wavorly was soon joined, however, by Californian Teddy Boldt, the also added guitarist Seth Farmer and keyboardist Ryan Coon to round out their sound. Finally after four long, stressful years Wavorly released their second album in November of this year titled “The EP”, and they have a new tour planned for early 2012!

    Today's song was one of the top singles off of "Conquering The Fear Of Flight"

The name they chose was the the name of a haunted house in West Point Mississippi, Wavorly. Their debut release on Flicker was “Conquering The Fear Of Flight” released the summer of 2007. Then, in Spring of 2008 they were dropped from Flicker Records, only months before Flicker itself dissolved. Despite the hardships of losing label association, Wavorly decided to press on and continued to demo and write. The band was in the middle of a stressful place when the songs for their new release started to be written, these songs gave, according to bassist Matt Lott “a new spirit to the band” that helped them hold the group together. Along with the difficulty of losing their label, Wavorly also endured the departure of drummer and founding member Jamie Hays in 2010, who left to pursue outreach work in the Czech Republic. Wavorly was soon joined, however, by Californian Teddy Boldt, the also added guitarist Seth Farmer and keyboardist Ryan Coon to round out their sound. Finally after four long, stressful years Wavorly released their second album in November of this year titled “The EP”, and they have a new tour planned for early 2012!

    Today's song was one of the top singles off of "Conquering The Fear Of Flight"

    Alright guys! How we all doing? Looking forward to some new music hopefully!

    Freshman 15 was formed in 2001 in Mississippi and released two albums independently before being signed to the now disbanded Flicker Records.

    Five Reasons Why I Don't Care if My Stuff is Pirated - A New Way of Thinking

    An article just came out in Wired (http://goo.gl/Nyaf9) and it featured many of my quotes. I have approached copyright, products, and business models in a very non-traditional way. I'm sure that I'm doing it the right way -- most others disagree. The article is about how I have chosen to share my photography from http://www.StuckInCustoms.com with a Creative Commons Noncommercial license, but it falls into an overall digital online strategy.

    I also just happend to watch the new TWIT about copyright with +Leo Laporte , +Nilay Patel , +Andy Ihnatko , and +Harry McCracken. I'm 100% in Leo's camp -- but with a slightly different flavor, one I am sure Leo would appreciate.

    All of my stuff is pirated. Everything from my HDR Video Tutorial to eBooks to Apps. Fine. It's all there on PirateBay and MegaUpload and all that stuff. Here are the reasons why I don't mind:

    1) Theft of bits are like the Tic Tacs that get stolen from the 7-11. It's the cost of doing business on the Internet.

    2) It is a LONG life. Many people that pirate stuff now from me just don't have any money. But, they like me and want my stuff. Some day, when they have money and get their financial act under control - maybe even in five years - I'll still be around. And then, they'll think, "You know what? I like that Trey guy... he put out stuff in the past that I like, and now I will start buying his new stuff."

    3) The "pirates" are part of my community. Not everyone in the community has equal means. Pirates are not cretins riddled with immoral behavior in every part of their life. These are all generally good people who would gladly support me, their friendly local neighborhood artist, if they could easily afford it. They can't now, but they will be able to some day... I give them something now, and they will give me something later. For example, 24 years ago in high school, I used to pirate Sid Meier games on my Amiga (including a game called Pirates). Now that I have money, I buy every single game that Sid Meier puts out.

    4) Pirates have friends that have money. It's still word-of-mouth, the most effective friend-to-friend marketing in the world. If pirates like what you do, they'll tell their friends. Not everyone is so handy with bittorrent and this sort of thing. Since I make purchases simple on my website at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com , many will come make the purchase because it is easier than pirating.

    5) Last, and most important, as soon as I opened everything up, our business has grown and grown. Our team now of about 10 people are happy and everything is profitable. It is strange to see a chart over time that shows an increase in revenues and an increase in piracy. Now, piracy is not the reason that revenues are increasing, but they are not hurting revenues.

    I'm proud of my artistic work and the creations that I have put on the internet, and for every thousand pirated downloads, I plant a thousand seeds.

    So at this point most of the holiday baking is done and now its down to sitting around, eating cookies, and of course, listening to some new awesome music!

    Today’s artist, based out of San Francisco, and known as Jordan Roseman by day, is renowned mashup artist DJ Earworm. He started making mashups in 2003 with audio program ACID, and with the encouragement of DJ Adrian, created the stage name DJ Earworm and began releasing his work thorough a website. His unique mashup style consists of gradual layering of song samples while matching keys between samples and his songs often carry a totally different meaning than the songs samples. In 2008 Roseman revealed that he now DJs with AbletonLiveRs and DJs live with the software. In 2007 DJ Earworm released “The United Of Pop”, consisting of the top 25 songs of 2007 according to Billboard. This song went beyond online download reaching the top 100 for radio play in 2008, and was the first bootleg mashup to enter Billboard’s charts. Due to the success of “The United State Of Pop”, Roseman made it a series, releasing a new mashup of every year’s top 25 since then, 2008 saw the release of “Viva La Pop” featuring prominently Coldplay’s Viva La Vida, “Blame It On The Pop” came in 2009 heavily featuring Jamie Foxx’s “Blame It”, “Don’t Stop The Pop” in 2010 with Ke$ha’s Tik-Tok, and 2011’s mashup is anticipated toward the end of this month with LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”, Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and others. In addition to his series, popular artists have contacted Roseman to create mashups for them, such as “Free At Night”, a mashup of Nelly Furtado’s “Greatest Hits” album, and “The Only Time Is Tonight” with Enrique Iglesias’ “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You)”. DJ Earworm is not affiliated with a label and all his music is distributed through the Internet, with many songs (such as “Viva La Pop”) netting a grand total of $0.00 according to his website. Though not a touring artist (yet) DJ Earworm is available for booking for parties and clubs.

    Today’s song is his mashup of The Fray’s cover of Kanye West’s “Heartless”, The Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow”, and The Police’s “Message In A Bottle”

    As some of you may know, tomorrow we are taking off for our Christmas break! We will be leaving you guys with a whole playlist to tide you over!

    Today's group is a short-lived rock/electronica band from New Orleans LA, formed in 1995. Earthsuit consisted of guitarist Dave Rumsey, keyboardist/vocalist Paul Meany, bassist Roy Mitchell, drummer David "Hutch" Hutchison, and vocalist Adam LaClave. Earthsuit's sound was primarily rock, but also possessed strong hip-hop, electronica, reggae, soul, and experimental elements.The group recorded several independent EPs and played primarily in their New Orleans area before becoming noticed by Sparrow Records at a concert in 1999. The ensuing record deal saw the band's only commercial release, a critically acclaimed album entitled "Kaleidoscope Superior"in 2000. Shortly after, the band left Sparrow and drifted out of the public eye. A final album, entitled "The Rise of Modern Simulation" was independently released before the group disbanded in 2003. Many of the band members continue to play together and collaborate in various bands, namely Mutemath and Club of the Sons.

    Today's song comes off of their album "Rise Of The Modern Simulation"
