Nashville based hard rockers Day Of Fire’s latest release, Losing All, is set to hit stores on January 26th 2010. The album features 13 ambitious, high energy rock songs, including the first single, “Lately.” The Grammy nominated band has sold over 150,000 albums and performed for over 750,000 devoted fans worldwide. They have previously toured with Saliva, Cold, Rev Theory, Collective Soul, and recently hit the road with Daughtry, who also co-wrote three tracks on the new album. Losing All is a powerful hard-rock record that showcases the growth of band professionally and personally. Day of Fire will tour this Fall and in 2010 in support of the album (tour dates below). Day Of Fire is vocalist Josh Brown, guitarist Joe Pangallo, his brother Chris Pangallo on bass, and drummer Zach Simms.

Nineties rock gave Day of Fire lead singer Josh Brown a muse, a voice and stardom. Then it nearly killed him. Now his band is giving the sounds that first inspired him new life on Day of Fire’s third album Losing All, a powerful hard-rock record that explores the real meaning of rebirth.
Brown grew up in Jackson, Tennessee, where he picked up songwriting and a serious drug habit at age 15. Two years later he became the frontman for Full Devil Jacket, and at 22 he scored the big-time record deal. Jacket performed with Stone Temple Pilots, Papa Roach, Incubus, Slipknot, and Fuel as well as at Woodstock ’99, but on his way to major success, Brown had a major crash: a heroin overdose in an Orlando bathroom put his career on hold while he rehabbed and rethought his life.
After several years out of the spotlight, Brown had a burst of inspiration, re-emerged with a new slate of songs and assembled Day of Fire – guitarist Joe Pangallo, his brother Chris Pangallo on bass, and drummer Zach Simms. Brown penned most of their 2004 self-titled debut in his mom’s garage and the band wrote and recorded its follow-up, 2006’s CUT & MOVE, during a brief break in touring. The two albums sold more than 150,000 copies combined, and a few short years later Day of Fire inked a new deal with Razor & Tie.
San Antonio rockers, Powderburn has issued the following update:
We boys in Powderburn have been VERY busy over the whole of 2009, working our tails off to create, record, and supplement our new record, One Fix. We’ve slept in the studio, fought over song titles, filmed ourselves making KISS dolls have sex, shot a video in triple-digit heat, wrote a book (seriously, check out the 4th Package option on our MySpace) and finally, we’ve made a historic decision about what to do with this music . . . .
We’re going to give you this record, one-hundred percent free. That’s right. You heard that word correctly. FREE.
Of course, we’re not giving you the whole experience free, but following in the trail-blazing footsteps of luminiaries like Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, we are giving you a good-quality digital download of the album right here on Reverb Nation, all you have to do is go to our page there and download away!
By the way, if you are interested in helping our cause financially, we are offering a series of packages on our MySpace page, ranging from just the physical CD (with 16-page booklet designed by Sneaky Giants) to the Ultimate Fix, with art prints of each band member and a poster (again, by Sneaky Giants) signed and numbered by the band, along with an 80-page hardcover book detailing the writing, recording, and filming of One Fix. These packages will be the best way to experience the album to its fullest, and will help us finance the NEXT record!
Thanks in advance for getting our music, and for spreading the word. We love you all. Ciao.
To celebrate next week’s release of their new album, Congregation of the Damned, Atreyu has created “Metal Head Zombies,” loosely based on the original Call of Duty video game. “Metal Head Zombies” is a first person shooter that requires players to protect themselves from zombies who are out for blood and attacking from all directions. If players make it to Level 6, they gain access to a never-before-heard track titled, “Gallows” from the new album. Once done mowing down the undead, make sure to pre-order your copy of Congregation of the Damned, in stores October 27th!

It was a tragedy when we lost Bon Scott back in 1980. AC/DC’s front man will never be forgotten. When it comes to the band ’77, I believe Bon Scott may have been reincarnated as ’77’s singer, Armand Valeta. Not only does Valeta sound like Bon Scott, but his brother LG, has the Angus Young style of play down to a science. ’77 has been able to reproduce the sound of pre-80’s AC/DC almost perfectly.
Some may argue that ’77 is nothing more than a clone band, and perhaps they are. When a CD rocks as hard as 21st Century Rock, I could care less. ’77 doesn’t sound like a watered down tribute band. These Spanish rockers completely nail the hard rocking sound of AC/DC. This is the type of music that you immediately want to crank up, and play as loudly as possible.
21st Century Rock has a bunch of fun tunes including, “Big Smoker Pig”, “Your Game’s Over”, “Double-Tongued Woman”. I can’t get “Big Smoker Pig” out of my head. It is insanely catchy, even if the lyrics are somewhat silly. Did the band write this song about a Barbecue? One may never know.
If you are a fan of AC/DC, you owe it to yourself to give ’77 a chance. There isn’t a bad song on this CD, and it absolutely rocks!
