ALL THAT REMAINS to support Killswitch Engage in November

Massachusetts-based metal act ALL THAT REMAINS will join up with fellow New England natives Killswitch Engage for a string of dates throughout November, replacing Shadows Fall as direct support for the package which also features Bury Your Dead and 2 Cents. Continuing to support their critically-acclaimed new album, The Fall of Ideals, ALL THAT REMAINS will play Asbury Park, NJ's Saints and Sinners Festival on Oct. 29 before meeting up with Killswitch Engage Nov. 9. ALL THAT REMAINS will be direct support through the Nov. 26th Spokane, WA show before departing for the United Kingdom for an 11-date tour of the country.

Through late November and into December, ALL THAT REMAINS will be direct support for power metal heroes DragonForce on a sold-out UK tour, a reprisal of the band's role earlier this fall when ALL THAT REMAINS was selected as support to DragonForce for the band's North American tour. Upon returning Stateside, ALL THAT REMAINS will take a short break at home, only to head back out on a headlining tour of North America through January and February. Tour dates and details for that itinerary will be available shortly.

Amid the flurry of touring activity, ALL THAT REMAINS can also be heard on the new trailer to Saw III, which can be found online here (http://www.saw3.com/). The trailer features a clip of "Indictment" , another track from the The Fall of Ideals. ALL THAT REMAINS' "This Calling" also serves as the lead track on the film's soundtrack album, now available on Warcon Records. A re-edited version of the "This Calling" video featuring footage from the film is also available on the band's official website (http://www.allthatremainsonline.com) and the Prosthetic Records YouTube page (http://youtube.com/profile?user=ProstheticRecords). The new version of the video will premiere on video outlets shortly. The track "Six," also found on The Fall of Ideals, will be featured as a bonus track on this fall's highly-anticipated Playstation 2 video game Guitar Hero II, available Nov. 7.

JOHN LITHGOW IS HANGIN' ON "THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET" WITH SOLD-OUT CONCERTS, TV APPEARANCES AND DEBUT OF NEW NBC SERIES

(New York, NY)- Award-winning entertainer John Lithgow has been busy lately! In addition to a rigorous taping schedule for the new NBC sitcom, "Twenty Good Years", in which he stars, Lithgow took time out to promote his new CD for children, THE SUNNY OF THE SIDE STREET. With sold-out concerts in both Los Angeles and New York, Lithgow and the CD have been featured in The Los Angeles Times and New York Magazine, to name a few.

Last week alone, Lithgow was seen on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, The View and The Today Show. Lithgow had Conan tipping over in his chair with laughter, as the two good-heartedly poked fun at "The Laughing Policeman", a track on the album. The hosts of The View sang along with him as he crooned (from the interview couch) the title track, "The Sunny Side Of The Street". Lithgow and his band will be performing full versions of several songs from the album on The CBS Saturday Early Show on November 11th, 2006.

Released on August 29th, 2006, THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET features cover versions of classic songs from The Great American Songbook including, "Getting To Know You" and "Inka Dinka Doo", with decidedly animated performances geared towards children. Produced by JC Hopkins (Victoria Williams, JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Norah Jones), the album features guest appearances by Madeleine Peyroux, Wayne Knight (Seinfeld's Newman), Broadway's Sherie Rene Scott ("Aida", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels") and cabaret star Maude Maggart.

Lithgow is no stranger to the world of children's entertainment; he is the best-selling author of six illustrated books, as well as instructional titles including Lithgow Palooza: 101 Ways to Entertain and Inspire Your Kids, released in April 2004, which received the Parents' Choice Silver Honor Award. He has also performed in numerous concerts for children across the country - including four appearances at Carnegie Hall and shows with the Chicago, San Diego, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Detroit Symphony Orchestras, the New York Pops Orchestra and the Orchestra of Saint Luke's - as well as with New York City Ballet in Carnival of the Animals. Lithgow has also released two CDs for children: FARKLE & FRIENDS and SINGIN' IN THE BATHTUB.

Lithgow is an award-winning actor, singer and author. A veteran of stage, screen and television, he has received two Tony Awards, three Emmys, a Golden Globe, two SAG Awards and an American Comedy Award. He was most recently seen on Broadway in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels". He stars in the new NBC sitcom, "Twenty Good Years", which debuted last night.

The Lithgow Palooza Company, the brainchild of John Lithgow and Broadthink, was launched in 2003 as a result of the success of Lithgow's many award-winning original properties for children. The company's mission is to be a resource for parents to inspire creativity in their children with a special focus on all the arts. The Lithgow Palooza Company is developing a range of properties designed to provide quality artistic experiences and irrepressible family entertainment. Some of the properties are even secretly educational. All are designed for distribution across the spectrum of channels from filmed entertainment to books, CDs, interactive software, merchandise and promotions in support of national non-profit literacy programs.
