The dudes in Aeges have been a busy bunch since the release of The Bridge last month. Be sure to keep tabs on the group by 'liking' their Facebook page HERE as they're really good at keeping everything up to date for everyone (Twitter HERE). Currently we're all working on getting the band on the road and also readying an upcoming 7" taht will feature Southern Comfort off the album and an unreleased B-side called Stars (which actually aired on the radio last night if you were listening to the band guest DJ on the Children of the Sun show). Lots of good stuff coming from these guys, so be sure to get in the loop! If you're still wet behind the ears on the band, you can stream the whole thing at Guitar World HERE or Bandcamp HERE, and here's what people have been saying about the latest offering:
"a burly, churning collection that drenches the classic 90's post-hardcore of Hum, Handsome and Quicksand in a Deftones-esque sheen..." - Decibel
"churning, emotive, groove-treading post-hardcore..." - Alternative Press
"one of the most promising debuts in recent memory..." - Ghettoblaster Magazine
"Metal doesn't need to ignore hooks and melodies like the plague. And Aeges mixes great melodies with heavy, aggressive stuff we all love..." - MetalSucks
"ĘGES is the way post-hardcore is supposed to sound: abrasive, anthemic and face-melting..." - CMJ
"10 tracks packed with infectious, righteous groove and deceptively weighty melody..." - Rock Sound
Thanks again to everyone that ordered The Bridge, everyone should have received their package by now, get in touch if you have any questions about your order or anything :) Last available copies are HERE :)
Herra Terra Prepare New EP
Everyones favorite cuties in Herra Terra are putting some finishing touches on their upcoming EP which we'll be releasing this fall! The band has made some demos of the tracks available for your listening pleasure on their Sound Cloud page HERE. Jam 'em loud, jam 'em proud, and don't be scared to dance in the mirror and sing into the brush. We're tentatively planning this one for a September release, with a fall tour to support. More on this one in the coming months, and to hear to from the band be sure to follow them on Facebook HERE and Twitter HERE! Also be sure to bang the video below of them performing Buried Youth (from the upcoming EP) on the Presskit.to Bus at SXSW 2012:
This is definitely going to be all the biz kid, so get ready for this one. As Outburn Magazine said of the band, "destined to be the next big thing... so why not hop on now so you can say you were there when it all started?". Good question! Hop on! Hop on!

This fall is going to be full of some brand spankin' new stuff by some brand spankin' new bands. After the new Herra Terra EP drops we'll have some new and exciting stuff from some new bands that have been blowing us away. We can't really get much more into than that, but look for some official announcements over the next couple months and as always... GET STOKED!
That's all we got for this months newsletter yo! One final note; as we're all well aware and continuously learning to adapt to, changes in technology have created an environment where music consumption is instantaneous and over-saturated, the options are endless. We're all trying to jump into the same pool. Some just fight to keep their head above the water while others commit to diving in head first as hard as they can and giving it everything they've got. This music is all that a lot of us have. Sink or swim. This idea of community, family, and unity - it's all built from revolutions which occurred previously through the humble beginnings of such inspirational musical movements as blues, jazz, rock and roll, punk rock, hardcore, etc and things were much different even then (though with their own sets of challenges for sure). It seems these days it's beyond a rat race, and more like a flood that you hope to stay afloat in. But with love, support, partnership, and the hard work of the bands and the team, there is a very real community that we've all been able to use to help each other float during the flood, and that's beautiful. We're going to keep moving, let the forces we cannot control dictate the current, and continue fighting for this community. Please continue to be a part of the journey with us, embrace those that come to join, and continue to love the ones that part ways; lets let change bring us closer together.
