EVANESCENCE has sold more than 25 million records worldwide with more than 10 million in the U.S. alone. The band’s global Top 10 hit singles “Bring Me To Life” and “My Immortal”, off their 2003 major label debut Fallen, led the group to two Grammy Awards (Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance for “Bring Me To Life”). The band’s follow-up was 2006′s The Open Door, which sold more than 6 million copies worldwide and spawned the hit “Call Me When You’re Sober”.” In October of 2011, they released their highly anticipated third studeio album Evanescence, which marked the band’s first album in five years and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 charts. Evanescence is Amy Lee (vocals, piano), Terry Balsamo (guitar), Troy McLawhorn (guitar), Tim McCord (bass) and Will Hunt (drums).
Platinum-selling alternative hard rock trio CHEVELLE – Pete Loeffler (guitars, vocals), Sam Loeffler (drums), and Dean Bernardini (bass, vocals), released their latest and sixth full-length album Halls Off To The Bull in late 2011. The album debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #19 and is being hailed as one of the finest albums of the band’s long and successful career. The explosive debut single, “Face To The Floor,” dominated the rock charts, claiming the #1 spot at Active Rock for 13 weeks. The Chicago trio’s latest single “Hats Off To The Bull” is following the same trajectory, shooting up the Active Rock chart, currently occupying the #3 position.
Pennsylvania quartet HALESTORM returned in April 2012 with their second full-length album, The Strange Case Of…. after scoring two top 10 singles (“I Get Off” and “It’s Not You”) from their self-titled album and touring steadily with acts as diverse as Shinedown, Stone Sour, Disturbed, Megadeth, Papa Roach, Godsmack and countless others. Musically diverse and emotionally revealing, the album resonates with a newfound poignancy that takes Halestorm – frontwoman Lzzy Hale, drummer Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger, and bassist Josh Smith – to a new level of creative acheivement. The first single “Love Bits (So Do I)” is a storming rocker that illustrates frontwoman Lzzy Hale’s individuality, sense of humor, and willingness to represent young women in today’s fast-paced society.
NEW MEDICINE – Jake Scherer (vocals), Dan Garland (guitar), Matthew Brady (bass), and Ryan Guanzon (drums) – injects a little hope into hard rock on their debut album Race You To The Bottom. Each song tells a story, whether it’s about the loss of a loved one on “little Sister” or the state of the world on “Race You To The Bottom.” “Laid,” the album’s first single, examines relationship troubles with a combination of wit and wisdom. The song is a propulsive lovelorn rocker that sugarcoats nothing.
