ATTALOSS TO RELEASE SELF-TITLED ALBUM
ON APRIL 10, 2012
Los Angeles modern rockers
Attaloss are releasing their self-titled album on April 10, 2012, via
Rock Ridge Music/Warner Music Group/ADA. Their new record showcases two
sides of the band, the high energy blown out rock side and the stripped
down acoustic side. Although the band name is a play on a common
phrase many of us hear every day, there is an underlying message of
optimism: “Even in these tough times, we must have hope for a better
tomorrow,” states singer Danny Aguiluz. The band line-up also
includes: Chris Johansen – Guitar, Matt Geronimo – Guitar/Vocals,
Lorenzo Perea – Bass, and Dakota Clark – Drums.
Danny, Chris, Lorenzo, and Dakota all left their respective
hometowns and moved to Los Angeles to chase their rock and roll dream.
Once they decided to join forces together they began the arduous task of
trying to come up with a band name. After kicking around hundreds of
potential names, they got news that their rehearsal studio was broken
into and all their music gear was stolen. “Getting news like that was
such a kick in the gut that we literally were at a loss for words. We
realized in that moment that we had our band name,” said guitarist Chris
Johansen who immediately began tracking down the thief. With Chris’
help police apprehended the suspect a few months later and the band’s
gear was recovered mostly intact. Instruments in hand, they recorded
the first five songs on the album in early 2011 and set out on tour
around the country playing shows with such acts as Neon Trees, Smashing
Pumpkins, and Patrick
Stump of Fall Out Boy. Realizing they weren’t quite capturing their
recorded sound live, they added guitarist/vocalist Matt Geronimo and
headed back into the studio to record the acoustic half of the record as
a five piece.
With a high energy live show the band is excited to get back out on
the road and bring their new music to the thousands of fans that have
been constantly tweeting for them to play in their city. The band plans
to tour heavily in support of the new album (see tour dates below).
“The fans have been amazingly supportive. This journey has been a real
roller coaster ride but we have come out of it stronger than ever,”
continues Danny. “Hopefully that message comes across and inspires
people to continue chasing their dreams. Today is an ‘Open Door.’”

Earth Signs with Panic Records
We Are Not Humanity to Be Released
Hollow Earth was a thought between
members Mike Moynihan (Guitar) Steve Muczynski (Vocals) and Aaron Goodrich
(Drums) during their stint of touring with legendary hardcore band Shai Hulud
during November 2010.
One year later, almost to the date,
the three friends decided to take that thought more seriously. Rearranging
their lives so they would be in the same location in
Michigan , the members moved in together and
put things in motion to become a real band. Their objective with Hollow Earth
was to write sincere music and begin touring as much as possible.
Quickly recruiting Dave Giandiletti
(Guitar) and Jake Hicks (Bass) to complete the line up they wrote a six song EP
entitled "We Are Not Humanity" within the two and half months of
their inception and headed off to record at Getaway Group in Massachusetts with
Jay Maas (Defeater, Verse, Shipwreck).
On "We Are Not Humanity",
Hollow Earth draws on the influence of legendary bands like Turmoil and Buried
Alive, capturing the energy and anger of hardcore that has been lost on so many
new bands. Hollow Earth's lyrics are dark with thought provoking premonitions
that paint a picture of impending doom that threatens the human existence.
Riding into our demise, there's no turning back, the decimation of our world is
eminent and Hollow Earth is the perfect soundtrack to play us out. "We Are
Not Humanity" will be released on April 17th, 2012 through Panic Records
on CD, Vinyl and Digital formats.
Listen to two new songs from
"We Are Not Humanity" now on Hollow Earth’s Facebook page.

2012. Yesterday, the first single from the EP, also

for those in the US and http://bnqt.co/KOL107
for those in the UK.
While the band
started with just Giles
Bidder (guitar/vocals) playing and touring
solo on acoustic guitar, it grew to include Bob Barrett
(drums) and Iona Cairns (bass)
in order to fully realize the potential of the music Bidder
created. "When I was playing solo, there were some songs
I recorded in a friend's bedroom at his parents' house a couple
of years ago - with one acoustic guitar, no overdubs - that
I didn't want to get lost in the years," says Bidder. "So
we took them into the studio and hammered them out as a band."
All of the songs have been previously released acoustically
under the name Cynics, and originally appeared on the Stones
I've Thrown EP and a split with the band WeGrowBeards.
Great Cynics burst
onto the radar with the June
2011 release of their debut album Don't Need Much
on Kind of LIke Records in the US and Household
Name Records in the UK. AOL Music heralded
the band's "punk and pop teeth on this debut record,
full of brash sing-along choruses," while Big
Cheese Magazine called the album "a
confident and accomplished debut". During the
Fall of 2011, Great Cynics travelled to the US to play a much
anticipated set at Gainesville's The Fest 10 alongside
a handful of East Coast dates. Of late, the band has toured
the UK and has scheduled several upcoming UK tour dates with
Crazy Arm, Apologies, I Have None, and Los
Broncos (tour dates below).
