FAIR TO MIDLAND will be supporting THE DAMNED THINGS and MAYLENE & THE SONS OF DISASTER on the INKED MAGAZINE MUSIC TOUR this summer. “We’re very excited about being a part of this tour, says bassist Jon Dicken. “We’re fans of all the bands involved and are looking forward to hitting the road with them for what looks like should be a fun summer. It’s a great way to kick off the release of our new record. Also, since it’s called the Inked Magazine Music Tour we may need to make a few tattoo shop stops before the tour starts!”
The band has also been confirmed to support DREDG in July along side THE TROPHY FIRE. Those dates in addition to the cluster of CD Release shows they announced earlier last month officially makes this one of the busiest summers in their career.
FAIR TO MIDLAND will release their brand new full length entitled “Arrows and Anchors” on July 12th, 2011. This is the band’s follow-up to the highly acclaimed record “Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True” released in 2007. One of their new tracks, “Amarillo Sleeps on My Pillow” is still being given away for FREE download HERE. The iTunes pre-order is also available HERE

BVB Live on The Daily Habit:
Japanese rockers X Japan have released a new video for their song “Jade”. This song is from the band’s U.S. debut which will be released later this year. Check it out!
Hailing from Scandinavia, XorigiN is the newest addition to the Frontiers Records ever expanding roster of artists and will release their debut album entitled “State of the Art” on August 23rdin North America and August 26th in Europe.
The band was originally named Orange Crush and was formed in Los Angeles in 1999, while the members where studying music at the Musicians Institute. The founding members Johannes Stole(vocals) and Daniel Palmqvist (guitar) later returned to their home countries of Norway and Sweden and continued collaborating on various projects in between their other engagements. Johannes is currently a sought after session singer/artist in Oslo, Norway and has released 2 critically acclaimed albums with progressive rock band Slaves To Fashion. Daniel has released a well received instrumental solo album, appeared as a session guitarist on a number of albums and is the former guitarist for the band The Murder Of My Sweet.
Melodic hard rock with a modern edge would be a fitting description of XorigiN’s music. Musically they draw on influences such as Toto, Giant, Journey and Yes (“90125”/”Big Generator” era) to name a few, but still keeping their own personal sound and musical identity intact. Strong melodies, well crafted songs and catchy vocal arrangements are their trademark. “It is our version of what AOR should sound like, catchy melodic tunes with rocking guitars and big hooks!”, says Johannes, “Our musical influences definitely shine through, but there’s also something uniquely ours mixed in there as well” adds Daniel.
“State of the Art” was produced by Daniel Flores (Mind’s Eye, The Murder of My Sweet) and promises to put the band on the radar of all the classic Melodic Rock fans! You will certainly hear more from these guys “We’re in this for the long run and are already writing for the next album” says Stole while Palmqvist adds “Hopefully the album will be well received and we certainly have a wish to take these songs to the stage”.
“State of the Art” includes the following songs:
Can´t Keep Running; Crying For You; In The Blink Of An Eye; Too Late; Gina; This Is It; The One For Me; Said And Done; Matters To The Heart; What Love Is All About; Mend My Heart. Includes bonus videoclip Can’t Keep Running.
You can enjoy the album trailer following this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdGgf7DfEDw
“Can’t Keep Running” can be streamed and listened to in full on the Frontiers Records web radio: www.frontiers.it/webradio
