The Cincinnati Sinners to play Riverfest September 2, 2012
Broad Horizon Records, Inc. is pleased to announce that The Cincinnati Sinners will be playing this year’s Riverfest.
Hot on the trail of the release of their new single, She’s the One, The Cincinnati Sinners were invited to be one of 5 local bands to play the nation’s biggest Labor Day Party; Riverfest, or as it is more commonly known, The Cincinnati Bell / WEBN Fireworks.
The Fireworks started in 1977 as a celebration of 10 years of decadence by local radio station, WEBN. 80,000 people showed up in what would become the nation’s biggest summer blowout; growing in popularity and size, year after year after year. Several sponsors have come and gone (Hudepohl Brewery, Pepsi, Toyota) but one thing continues; a spectacular show by Rozzi’s Fireworks (Loveland OH) a synchronized soundtrack by the area’s largest Rock Station, and a ton of fun provided by some of the area’s best vendors and local musicians. The event routinely draws over 500,000 people to the Cincinnati Riverfront and is celebrating it’s 35th anniversary this year.
The Cincinnati Sinners are excited to be playing the prestigious and coveted event; having opened for Sebastian Bach, Jackyl, Quiet Riot, and appearing on the Monsters of Rock Cruise within the last 12 months. Their first single, Thunder, got modest airplay while their follow up, She’s the One seems to be THE one for the Sinners. Already in heavy rotation on Cincinnati stations due to the band’s addition to the fireworks festivities, a full fledged radio campaign for the single kicks off 10.11.12. Featuring Russell Jinkens (CJSS/Prizoner) you may have seen them recently on Spike TV’s Bar Rescue or in the upcoming video campaign for Fireball Whisky.
WEBN is a commercial album oriented rock (AOR) station licensed in Cincinnati and owned by Clear Channel Communications. The station serves the greater Cincinnati area since 1967 and is the home of many Cincinnati personalities. Besides a standard analog transmission, WEBN broadcasts over two HD Radio channels, and is available online via iHeartRadio.
Cincinnati Bell is the dominant tele communications provider for Cincinnati, Ohio and neighboring suburbs in Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio.Cincinnati Bell partnered with WEBN in 2007 to help sponsor the event.
Broad Horizon Records, Inc. is a Cincinnati based record label distributing quality music since 1987.

The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival came to the Riverbend Music Center in July. This tour is easily the biggest Metal festival of 2012, and the lineup this year is pretty incredible. You have two of the Big Four thrash bands, Anthrax and Slayer, as well as Motorhead, Slipknot, As I Lay Dying, Asking Alexandra, The Devil Wears Prada, Whitechapel & more. Work commitments kept me from making it to the venue for the 2 P.M. start time, but I did manage to make in for the start of Anthrax’s blistering set.
This was the second time I have seen Anthrax in 2012, and much like the first time, the bodies started flying as soon as the music began. The security guys in the pit were having a time keeping up with all of the crowd surfers. Anthrax was incredible as always, but as good as they were, they weren’t the best band of the evening. I watched the conclusion of Anthrax’s set, and made my way to the main stage for As I Lay Dying.
This was a night of many firsts for me. I haven’t ever seen As I Lay Dying, Slayer or Motorhead, so I was excited to see these bands play for the first time. I have to admit, I am not much of a metalcore fan, but As I Lay Dying was very good at what they do. They hair was flying, and lead singer Tim Lambesis never stayed in place for a minute. My neck hurt just watching him perform. Lots of headbanging and hair flying fun!
Next up was the mighty Motorhead. I can’t believe that I haven’t seen the band play before now, but Lemmy Kilmister and company were excellent. Lemmy is still getting it done at the nice young age of 66. Of course, Motorhead closed out their set with the one and only “Ace of Spades” and it was as awesome as I expected it to be.
To my ears, the best band of the evening without question was Slayer. I readily admit that I haven’t been a big Slayer fan, but they blew me away. The band was on fire all night (as was their stage, with tons of pyro.) Kerry King might just be the most metal looking musician ever! I enjoyed watching him play.
I wasn’t able to photograph Slipknot, so I grabbed my seat for their set. I saw the band in the inaugural Mayhem festival back in 2008, so I already knew that they put on an in incredible show. They didn’t disappoint. Their is always something going on the stage during a Slipknot show. From Clown’s hydraulic drum kit, to the masks, random crowd surfing, and pyro you never know where to look during their set. I can’t remember Slipknot coming to Cincinnati before, but I am pretty sure this was their first time here. Judging from the people who raised their hand when Corey Taylor asked if it was their first time seeing Slipknot, there were thousands of people who have not seen them play before. They got their money’s worth at the 2012 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. This is a great festival for fans of metal music. I can’t wait until the next one.
