Rocking the hearts of every man, woman, and child they meet. The band rocked so hard in 2008 it captured the attention of Rock Legends Mötley Crüe who along with Guitar Center, Gibson Guitars and Fame Cast helped to push the band into the national spotlight. Doing so has earned them a number of endorsements and select dates on the 2009 Van’s Warped Tour.
The label debut has been released on all digital retailers and for national distribution. Phillip “Scrappy” Gordon, of 1st Amendment Records said, “These are exciting times”. Scrappy co-produced this album along with The Heroine. Scrappy stated “This band goes hand in hand with what 1st Amendment Records is all about.”

Joining forces with a hard working label like 1st Amendment (Records) is something I think will be very fruitful for all of us. Now it’s time to do what we do best, write KILLER songs and ILLUMINATE stages all across the world.”
The Heroine recorded their 1st Amendment Records debut at the famed 6th Street Studios in San Antonio, TX. The band is currently managed by I Am King Management. For more information on this Texas rock outfit please visit www.myspace.com/theheroinerock and www.myspace.com/1stamendmentrecords77
Las Vegas rockers, Adelitas Way will hit the road with Shinedown this fall in support of their self-titled debut, which released July 14th on Virgin/EMI Music and debuted at #16 on Billboard’s Top New Artist Chart. The tour will kick off in Richmond, VA on Friday, September 11 and will work its way across the Midwest and West coast then travel back ending in Orlando.
To mark the release of its self-titled debut, Adelitas Way recently celebrated at the Palms Casino Resort in its hometown of Las Vegas on the album’s street date. A select number of fans who purchased their CD at ZIA Records along with local radio contest winners, gained entry to a private concert by Adelitas Way at The Lounge at the Palms Casino Resort and the after-party at Moon. Preceding their debut celebration, Adelitas Way appeared at WWE’s Monday Night RAW in Orlando.
The album’s kick off single, the power-rock anthem “Invincible,” has already been tagged as WWE Superstars theme song, been used for spots promoting the 2009 season finale of the hit series “CSI: Miami” and is currently available on iTunes. Since then, the single been streamed nearly 200,000 times on Adelitas Way’s MySpace page and is building national airplay as it climbs at both Active and Rock radio charts.
In support of the single, the band shot their video for “Invincible,” which was directed by Dale Resteghini, (Fallout Boy, Hawthorne Heights, Alter Bridge). Adelitas Way wanted to create an epic video that would awaken the fight in anyone who is in need. The video focuses on everyday people who are faced with life challenging circumstances, while delivering an inspiring message of hope and perseverance. The video will appear on AOL’s NoiseCreep.
Adelitas Way is fronted by singer Rick DeJesus, who grew up in a rough Philadelphia neighborhood that was ravaged by drugs and poverty. In 2005, he seized an opportunity to move to Las Vegas where he met up with lead guitarist Chris Iorio, guitarist Keith Wallen, drummer Trevor Stafford and bassist Derek Johnston. Soon the quintet was opening for artists like Chris Cornell, Hinder and Tantric, generating an impressive industry buzz that resulted in their signing with Virgin.
Produced by the Grammy-nominated Johnny K (Disturbed, Plain White T’s, 3 Doors Down), the band’s debut album is filled with hard, edgy modern rock anthems spotlighting the shredding blues style of teenage axe-slinger Iorio and the propulsive, grunge-like drums of Huntington Beach, CA native Stafford, a veteran of Ozzfest band Shuvel. N.Y. bassist Johnston and West Virginia guitarist Wallen bring a combination of indie, hardcore and classic rock influences to the band’s distinctive sound.
Adelitas Way, whose name comes from an unplanned visit to a Tijuana brothel, is currently on tour with Saliva and will head out with Sick Puppies on August 13th. You can check out first single “Invincible” and other music from Adelitas Way on the group’s MySpace page (www.myspace.com/adelitasway) and at www.adelitaswaymusic.net.

Frontiers Records are very excited to announce the signing of American rockers Nelson for a brand new Rock album – set to be titled “Lightning Strikes Twice”. The label will also release a Nelson live album recorded during the “After the Rain” tour and the original “After the Rain” demos which include some unreleased gems.
Right now the Nelson’s are hard at work in the studio working on the new album. Gunnar Nelson reports: “After many years of mutual admiration, Matthew and I are proud to announce our new partnership with our friends at Frontiers. We’re thrilled at the opportunity for a renewed vitality for Nelson. We eagerly anticipate an unstoppable connection between the songs we work so hard on and the fans of classic melodic hard rock that we make our music for. While trends have come and gone, Frontiers has stayed the course and supported a loyal fanbase all over the world. Matthew and I have taken great pride in doing the same. It’s this shared passion for great rock and roll…spearheaded by great songs…presented in a timeless fashion…that’s assured Matthew and I that Frontiers will be where our future hits find a perfect home. We’re currently hard at work in the studio after years of writing the best songs of our lives. The resulting effort will be our first original effort commissioned specifically by and for Frontiers – a seamless follow up to our triple platinum debut album After The Rain called Lightning Strikes Twice. Brother harmonies, soaring guitars, melodies that will keep you up at night… but above all… Great Songs. That is what Nelson does. And that’s all we’re ever going to do for Frontiers and our loyal fans. And with our legendary drummer Bobby Rock, international guitar virtuoso Neil Zaza, and former Aerosmith keyboardist Gary Corbett, we plan on touring the four corners of the earth to support it.
Nelson is back, and better than ever. Let’s ROCK, shall we?”
“After the Rain” was the hit debut multi-platinum album from the band led by Matthew and Gunnar in the early 1990s. They zoomed to number one with their hit song, “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection,” had three Top 10 singles, four #1 MTV videos, five Top 40 Billboard Hits and became massively popular overseas. Every magazine from Rolling Stone to People did cover stories, and the twins performed on television shows like “Late Night With David Letterman” and “Saturday Night Live.” Critics tended to unfairly overlook Nelson, however, because of the brothers’ pin-up good looks… but that didn’t stop millions of fans from ‘getting’ what all the excitement was about.
With the rise of grunge rock in the mid-90s, pop music grew dark and foreboding. Matthew and Gunnar chose not to compromise their positive, drug-free posture to suit the trend. Those who continued to follow the brothers’ musical progress were rewarded with numerous gems on their seven subsequent albums on their own Stone Canyon Records label.
Matthew and Gunnar have rare insights into what it takes to earn longevity in the entertainment world. They continue the inspiring story of a most remarkable show business family. Their grandparents, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, achieved immortality with “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” the longest-running live action sitcom in television history. Earlier, the couple had enjoyed big band success and had scored a number one hit in 1934.
Ricky Nelson emerged from the TV series’ popularity to establish himself as one of the most important rock artists of the ’50s and ’60s with 60 million career sales and three number ones of his own. So, with Matthew and Gunnar’s “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection”, the Nelsons landed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only family to reach number one record status in three successive generations.
Once again billed as Nelson, and reuniting the original internationally known rock band, Matthew and Gunnar continue to perform sold-out shows around the globe. Contributing to their audience’s extraordinary devotion is the fact that Matthew and Gunnar tirelessly try to please. They take time to meet and greet each and every fan following all performances… for in their own words, “Our people are everything to us.”
Defying any preconceptions, Matthew and Gunnar dazzle audiences of all ages. They carry on the family tradition, while carving out their own musical identities with grace, class, and passion. Their live show flat-out ROCKS! Much to their satisfaction, the brothers’ career path displays parallels to that of their legendary father, Ricky Nelson, who found fame as a teen idol before reinventing himself as a singer-songwriter and helping found the country rock movement.
Matthew Nelson adds: “”Gunnar and I are thrilled with this new partnership with Frontiers Records. To have the chance now to work on this new NELSON album creatively is a wonderful opportunity for us as artists and to continue the musical journey we started early in our careers. As singer songwriters we saviour this experience. We’re having a blast in the studio recording some incredible rock music. Our Pop (Ricky Nelson) taught us that all careers are really a series of comebacks, and that ‘lightning really does strike twice’…. so we’re ready to continue the rockin’ journey with Frontiers and NELSON on LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE!”

Nelson can be heard talking about the new live show and how it feels to be back rocking in the video below.
struggle, honesty, lies, & more drinking, is a valid testament of what
life is like as a Star*rat.. Loud ,Obnoxious,narcissistic, depraved,
and most of all fun!
You could say that Star*Rats relates a little to the newer wave of american
hard rock like Velvet Revolver, Buckcherry, Sixx A.M, & Papa Roach, but yet again, completly their own!

Quickly rising alternative rock band, CAVO, prepares to release their debut album, Bright Nights * Dark Days, on August 11th! The St. Louis band, which began in March 2001, consists of singer Casey Walker, guitarist Chris Hobbs, bassist Brian Smith, and drummer Chad La Roy. The band recorded an EP in early 2007 that caught the attention of a local St. Louis radio station, and was quickly put into rotation while the band began to play live showcases around the country. Record producer David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore) quickly took notice and with him on board, Cavo signed with Reprise Records in October 2008. Now, after nine years together as a band, Cavo is releasing their major-label debut Bright Nights * Dark Days, which includes the propulsive first single “Champagne,” which is in the Top 5 most requested songs at over 60 Rock stations, as well as “Let It Go,” which was featured in the Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen movie and soundtrack.
Currently, Cavo is out on the Crue Fest 2 tour through August!
