ANEW REVOLUTION will be hitting the road on the “Economic Stimulus Tour” along side Poughkeepsie New York’s SUGAR RED DRIVE. “This tour was created as a way to give back to the cities we’re playing and their local economies. We’re going into these cities and venues and literally adding jobs. Whether it be by hiring local crew or promotion outlets, or just bringing people into the venue to in turn the spend some money to see a good show and maybe buy some merch.” says bassist Frank Salvaggio.
One of the main focuses of this tour is to create at least 2 real jobs the day of the show by hiring 2 part-time workers to help with load-in, set up, and local transportation for the bands. Salvaggio continues, “We’re also showing that even a modest touring band has to do whatever it takes to survive in these tough economic times.”
ANEW REVOLUTION also plan on keeping the ticket prices at a lower than average price of just $10 as well as donating 50% of the ticket proceeds to a local, not national, charitable cause.

ANEW REVOLUTION will release their third studio record entitled “iMERICA” on May 18th, 2010 via E1 Music. Produced by Ben Schigel, a musician, record producer and vocalist from the band SWITCHED who has produced for such bands as STEMM, DROWNING POOL, WALLS OF JERICHO, CHIMAIRA & many more. A brand new song called “Head Against The Wall” is streaming via their myspace page now [www.myspace.com/anewrevolution]. The band also just finished shooting a video for the same song in Austin, TX last week with famed director David Brodsky (GOD FORBID, THE RED CHORD, ALL THAT REMAINS, KITTIE).
Formed in Austin, Texas by singer/guitarist Joey Duenas, bassist Frank Salvaggio, drummer Rob Urbani in 2004, and later rounded out by Austin-area shredder Shaun Stockton on lead guitar, ANEW REVOLUTION stand by the promise in their name. Though they’ll happily recall the milestones set by their former bands – Duenas’ Ünloco, Urbani and Salvaggio’s Slaves on Dope, they’ll also be the first to remind you of just what ANEW REVOLUTION means.
