METAL DYNAMOS ALL THAT REMAINS TO SUPPORT DRAGONFORCE ON NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

(New York, NY)- Fresh from their first stint on Ozzfest as one of the second stage's main attractions, Massachusetts' own All That Remains has been tapped as direct support for buzz-worthy band, DragonForce, on the UK-based band's first-ever North American headlining tour. The tour will kick off on September 8th in Los Angeles at The Wiltern, and All That Remains will play a string of headlining dates on the way out to California.

All That Remains' new album, THE FALL OF IDEALS (produced by Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage), recently debuted at #75 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, selling nearly 13,000 in its first week. Kerrang! said that the album "bears all the hallmarks of a classic" and that the musicianship is "stunning-ruthlessly precise and powerful, and boosted by a sumptuous, skull-pounding production." The first single/video, "This Calling" can currently be seen on MTV2 and Fuse, as well as heard on hard rock stations nationwide. All That Remains' lead singer Phil Labonte will appear on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" on September 9th.

KIDZ BOP HAS BEST WEEK EVER; VOLUME 10 SELLS 116,000 UNITS IN ONE WEEK AND IS THE #3 ALBUM IN THE UNITED STATES

{New York, NY}- Topping its predecessors, KIDZ BOP 10, the latest volume from the best-selling children's music series, has sold 116,000 units in its first week and has entered the Billboard Top 200 Album chart at the #3 position. In addition, it is the top album on both the Internet and Children's charts and is also the #1 album in such major markets as New York, Boston, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and many other cities.

This is by far the biggest sales week in KIDZ BOP history, topping the 98,000 units sold by KIDZ BOP 9 when it was released this past February. Even more impressive is the growth KIDZ BOP 10 experienced compared to KIDZ BOP 8, the last summer release, which scanned 67,000 units in its first week in August, 2005. Since their debut in 2001, KIDZ BOP titles have sold over 8 million copies with eight gold albums to date.

KIDZ BOP is now a certifiable phenomenon, with a number of brand extensions in the works. A national tour will roll out to theaters across the country at the end of 2006. This summer, Razor & Tie partnered with Six Flags to launch Club KIDZ BOP, a live interactive concert at Six Flags parks. Fisher-Price's Star Station which features KIDZ BOP music was declared one of the "12 Toys of Christmas" by Wal-mart and sold out all across the country during the past holiday season.

In recent months, Razor & Tie Co-Owners and Co-Creators of KIDZ BOP Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam were featured on national television outlets such as The Today Show and ABC World News Tonight, as well as in print in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone and many more.
