Band Hosting Fan Contest For Album Cover

Confirmed For Summer 2012 All Stars Tour


(New York, NY) -For The Fallen Dreams, the latest addition to the Artery Recordings roster, is set to release their latest studio album, Wasted Youth, on July 17th via Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie. The album was produced by Tom Denney (formerly of A Day To Remember) in his Florida studio during the winter of 2012.

For The Fallen Dreams have taken to Facebook and are asking their fans to select the final cover art for Wasted Youth. Four options can be found on the band's Facebook page and the design with the most likes by May 4th will be selected as the official album cover. The cover options can be viewed HERE.

The Lansing, Michigan based band recently wrapped up a nationwide tour with Artery Recordings labelmates Chelsea Grin, Attila and Vanna. They will hit the road this summer as part of the high profile 2012 All Stars Tour which kicks off on July 26th and makes stops across the country before concluding on August 25th. Suicide Silence will headline the tour with additional support from Unearth and Dance Gavin Dance (both on select dates) as well as The Word Alive, I See Stars, A Skylit Drive, Winds Of Plague and Attila amongst others. Full tour dates will be announced shortly.

Formed in 2003, For The Fallen Dreams has released three full length albums Changes (2008), Relentless (2009) and Back Burner (2011) on Rise Records, and a self-titled EP (2003). The band has toured extensively, including national stints with Unearth, For Today, Norma Jean, Chelsea Grin and Of Mice & Men as well as European shows supporting A Day To Remember, Bury Your Dead and more. Revolver Magazine said of the bands' music, "the band does manage to create material that will engage even the most jaded heavy-music listener" and Alter The Press said, "They do a great job at the divide between melody and angst, giving enough of each to both move and pump fists, just what every band that walks the line of hardcore needs, wishes for and much, much more." For The Fallen Dreams is Dylan Richter (vocals), Kalan Blehm (guitar), Jim Hocking (guitar) and Arvin Sarathy (drums).

Artery Recordings is the label home to The Artery Foundation and an imprint of independent label Razor & Tie, whose roster now includes Chelsea Grin, Vanna, Attila, I Declare War, A Bullet For Pretty Boy, Close To Home, The Crimson Armada and Casino Madrid. A management company since 2004, The Artery Foundation has a knack for finding diamonds in the rough and nurturing them into worldwide prominence. Some of their recent artists flooding the Billboard charts have included Top 40 releases with The Devil Wears Prada and Attack Attack!, Top 100 releases with Alesana and Breath Carolina and additional artists such as Asking Alexandria, Jonny Craig and Dance Gavin Dance.

JON McLAUGHLIN "SUMMER IS OVER" (WITH SARA BAREILLES) FEATURED AS iTUNES VIDEO OF THE WEEK

JON McLAUGHLIN "SUMMER IS OVER" (WITH SARA BAREILLES) FEATURED AS iTUNES VIDEO OF THE WEEK

"Summer Is Over" Video Premieres On VEVO


McLaughlin Headline Tour Dates Announced; New Album Promising Promises To Be Released On May 22nd


(New York, NY) - Singer songwriter Jon McLaughlin's first single, "Summer Is Over," featuring Sara Bareilles is the iTunes video of the week, available HERE or http://bit.ly/SIOVID2. The video directed by Robby Starbuck (Yellowcard, Smashing Pumpkins, Breathe Carolina) also premiered this week on VEVO. The song is the first single off of his forthcoming new studio album Promising Promises (Razor & Tie), which is set for release on May 22nd 2012.

McLaughlin has also announced headline tour dates kicking off on May 16th in Dallas, TX wrapping in late June in Boston, MA (tour dates below). Tickets on-sale Friday April 6th here: http://jonmcl.cinderblock.com/.

In 2011, McLaughlin released a self-financed/self-produced independent album, Forever If Ever. The forthcoming album Promising Promises is a completely updated version, Jon explains, "What we did was we took three songs off Forever If Ever and added three new ones that I was really excited about getting out there. Then we added the one and only Sara Bareilles to "Summer Is Over" and we did some tweaks on some of the instrumental parts on that song as well. We then remixed and re-mastered the entire record. We have all new photos and artwork for the packaging of the album. And in the end, we have Promising Promises- the new and improved record. The album will be released on my new label Razor & Tie which I’m really excited about."

Promising Promises embodies McLaughlin's irresistible songwriting style and charismatic live performances. The album features songs all written and produced by Jon McLaughlin and was partially recorded in 2011 with additional material currently completed in Jon’s home state of Indiana with his core band. At the heart of Promising Promises remains Jon's sweetly melancholy songs. McLaughlin was able to let his stories and characters live through painfully honest and telling lyrics. With Jon's lead single he returns to a more traditional view of heartbreak with the wistful "Summer is Over," written for a friend in the throes of a crushing break-up. The mid-western born and raised Jon McLaughlin has released two albums 2007's Indiana and 2008's OK Now with Island Records. His hit singles "Beautiful Disaster" and "Beating My Heart" propelled the singer songwriter up the charts and to date he has sold more than 1 million digital tracks and 170,000 albums. In 2008 McLaughlin appeared as himself in the film Enchanted starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey singing the song "So Close." The song was nominated for an Academy Award and Jon performed it at the Oscars in front of 32 million US viewers. The 29 year old McLaughlin plays both piano and guitar and has performed on such television shows as The Today Show, The Tonight Show and The CBS Early Show and been featured on NPR's Weekend Edition. USA Today has raved about his "indelibly catchy" music and Billboard has declared his songs have "instantaneous hit potential, and proper promotion could propel the artist to superstar status." His music has been featured in film and television shows such as Disney's Bridge To Terabithia, Universal Pictures' Georgia Rule, CBS's Ghost Whisperer, CBS's Flashpoint, an ABC Primetime promo spot, NBC's Scrubs, and NBC's The Event. McLaughlin has toured with Kelly Clarkson, Adele, Colbie Caillat, Sara Bareilles, One Republic, Paolo Nutini, Duffy and many more.

ALL THAT REMAINS CELEBRATE FIRST TOP 5 ACTIVE ROCK SINGLE WITH "THE WAITING ONE" FROM THEIR CURRENT ALBUM, FOR WE ARE MANY

ALL THAT REMAINS CELEBRATE FIRST TOP 5 ACTIVE ROCK SINGLE WITH "THE WAITING ONE" FROM THEIR CURRENT ALBUM, FOR WE ARE MANY

All That Remains' latest single, "The Waiting One," jumps to #5 today on the Active Rock Radio chart making ATR's first ever Top 5 single and also the band's fifth consecutive hit single at Active Rock. The band's current release, For We Are Many (Razor & Tie/Prosthetic), has also spawned 2 additional Top 10 tracks, "Hold On," and "The Last Time" which spent a combined calendar year charting at the format. "Two Weeks," off ATR's 2008 Overcome also charted in the Top 10, making "The Waiting One" the band's fourth Top 10 single to date. To listen to "The Waiting One," click here: http://www.vevo.com/watch/all-that-remains/the-waiting-one-audio/USRZR1140820?source=instantsearch

"So this is something I NEVER thought I would say but ATR has a top 5 single on rock radio. It's been weird and exciting incorporating hard rock elements into what we feel was the already very diverse metal style that makes up what we do," said vocalist Phil Labonte. "So, on behalf of everyone in All That Remains I'd like to say, to all the people who listen to our records and love the heavy stuff we still do, all the people who call in to radio stations and request ATR, everyone at Razor & Tie, and the radio stations across the country who have the balls to play ATR, thank you, from the bottom of our crappy little hearts. You did this, and it's awesome."

All That Remains spent over a year on the road touring behind, For We Are Many, playing over 240 shows including a headlining tours as well as tours with Asking Alexandria, Buckcherry, Black Label Society, Hollywood Undead, Five Finger Death Punch as well as a few major radio and international festivals. For We Are Many debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart last October and has sold over 170,000 albums. All That Remains have sold over 875,000 albums and 1,100,000 tracks to date.

The band is currently hard at work writing the follow-up to For We Are Many and will be entering the studio soon to begin tracking new material.
