THE SWORD TO APPEAR ON LABOR DAY EPISODE OF ANTHONY BOURDAIN: NO RESERVATIONS

THE SWORD TO APPEAR ON LABOR DAY EPISODE OF ANTHONY BOURDAIN: NO RESERVATIONS

"Tears Of Fire" Hot Sauce Featured On Show And Available To The Public

NEW SWORD ALBUM APOCRYPHON TO BE RELEASED MONDAY OCTOBER 22ND


As a first step of the pre-release campaign for their new album, Apocryphon, The Sword will appear Monday, September 3rd at 9 PM ET/PT on Travel Channel's highly rated show Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations-The Final Tour. The show was shot in March in Austin, Texas at the SXSW music festival. Here is a description of the band's segment and a short clip taken from the show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su6vO7Egjvk&feature=youtu.be

First Tony grabs a drink with The Sword at their favorite local bar, The Draught House. They then take him to Quality Seafood Market for some fish tacos, fried catfish, and oysters - all with the band's brand-name hot sauce.

As noted above, the band takes the opportunity to introduce Bourdain to their branded hot sauce "Tears of Fire." As of Tuesday September 4th, the sauce will be available for sale at the following site. http://www.tearsofjoysauces.com/product_info.php?cPath=53&products_id=647

Creator of the sauce, Brian Rush, says the following, "They wanted something hot, but with a good flavor. I already make a really hot red habanero sauce (August in Austin), so it was just a matter of taking that over the top. I added the infamous Ghost Chile, the hottest pepper in the world along with some extra spice to give it another dimension of zing. This is an other-worldly sauce with both flavor and heat, named after a killer song for one of the best bands Austin has to offer."

Apocryphon, the band's fourth album and first for new label partners Razor & Tie will be released October 22nd followed by a U.S tour. Tour details will be announced Wednesday September 5th.

Nonpoint features 12 of the most raw and real songs of their 15-year career with unique, uncompromising, and undeniable hard rock on their self-titled ninth studio album and first for Razor & Tie. Weathering lineup changes, label shifts, and other trials and tribulations, founding members Elias Soriano [vocals] and Robb Rivera [drums] regrouped with fresh blood-Dave Lizzio [guitar], Adam Wolosyzn [bass], and Rasheed Thomas [guitar]-and captured pure fire this time around.

Front man Elias Soriano explains the new album, "We wanted this record to be a punch in the face. There was a lot of stuff I wanted to artistically vent about. It's a fresh start for us, "We felt like having a self-titled record says it all. We hit the reset button, and there's life again. You can hear it musically. We're not going anywhere." "This album is the beginning of a brand new chapter in the world of Nonpoint...rejuvenated and full of positivity," adds drummer and founding Nonpoint member Robb Rivera. "Elias has written his most personal lyrics yet that shows the signs of endurance this band has had in our 15 year career."

The band opened up the floodgates to the new album by unleashing one of its heaviest tracks, "I Said It," as a free download on their website this summer and the fans responded with overwhelming enthusiasm, welcoming the onslaught. The first official single "Left For You" is for sale now on iTunes- HERE and is closing in on the top 25 already at active rock radio.

Nonpoint remains as one of the most consistent and incendiary live acts on the scene. Having shared the stage with everyone from Sevendust and Stone Sour to Papa Roach and Buckcherry as well as appearing at festivals such as OZZfest and the UK's Download, each performance stands out as an experience their fan base fervently follows.

SUCH GOLD'S DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM MISADVENTURES CRASHES INTO THE BILLBOARD TOP 10 HEATSEEKERS CHART

SUCH GOLD'S DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM MISADVENTURES CRASHES INTO THE BILLBOARD TOP 10 HEATSEEKERS CHART

Tours Confirmed With Silverstein and Strung Out


"The band proves itself a worthy torchbearer of genuine pop punk." Outburn

"There is something irrepressible about Misadventures which will bring you back again and again...4/5 stars." Alternative Press


(New York, NY) - Razor & Tie's latest developing act Such Gold's debut studio album Misadventures crashes into the Billboard Heatseekers Chart this week debuting at #6 with 2,350 albums sold in its first week out. Misadventures also lands on a number of other Billboard charts including: #34 on the Independent Chart, #165 on the Top 200 Album Chart, and #6 on the Vinyl Chart.

Produced by Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Saves The Day, Lifetime, The Dillinger Escape Plan), Misadventures is the first full-length album from the Rochester-based melodic hardcore/punk band.

Such Gold formed in 2009 and have reaped the rewards of their tireless efforts by releasing two EPs, Stand Tall (2009, Mightier Than Sword Records) and Pedestals (2010, 6131 Records). The band also released music on a split EP with Into It. Over It., and released an additional EP with A Loss For Words this past November. Fans of Such Gold have been attracted to the band's pop-punk stylings as the young group marries their love for old school pop-punk, hardcore and indie rock. Alternative Press has raved about the bands' music, "a pitch-perfect, gimmick-free example of how solid the melodic hardcore-influenced pop-punk sound could really be when imbued with an indelible enthusiasm and adolescent passion" and proclaiming the songs are "breathtaking" and "leaving one wanting more." The band has toured with The Wonder Years, We Are The Union, A Loss For Words, Man Overboard, Polar Bear Club, Fireworks, Balance and Composure, Rust Belt Lights, Maker, Kills and Thrills, etc. Such Gold is Ben Kotin (vocals), Nate Derby (guitar), Skylar Sarkis (guitar/vocals) and Devan Bentley (drums).

The third annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival kicks off this Friday, August 17 in Kansas City, MO and wraps Sunday, September 30 in Albuquerque, NM. The Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage will feature performances from multiplatinum rock bands Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach, along with breaking band Adelitas Way. In addition, the Ernie Ball Stage and Jägermeister Stage in the festival area will include performances from multiplatinum headliner P.O.D., as well as up-and-coming artists Deuce, Fozzy, Redlight King, Mindset Evolution, In This Moment, Thousand Foot Krutch, Candlelight Red and a local Battle Of The Bands winner. Go to www.RockstarUPROAR.com for full details and a list of bands performing at each show.

Murdered Love is P.O.D.'s first new album in four years and sees the band reunited with long-time producer Howard Benson who also produced the band's massive Satellite album alongside hit albums for Kelly Clarkson, Theory Of A Deadman, Daughtry, and My Chemical Romance. The first single from the new album is currently #6 on the Active Rock Radio Charts and is P.O.D.'s highest charting radio song in over nine years. USA Today raves, ""SoCal rap-metal band brings back the boom after a four-year absence, sounding like the hook-laden harbinger of a spiritual apocalypse." Revolver Magazine decalres, "Still building big-chorus riff bombs designed to set off the youth of the nation...Murdered Love is best when all the anthemic stuff comes equipped with the sort of infectious grooves that the band's SoCal stomping ground is known for."

P.O.D. (Payable on Death) formed in 1992 has logged a remarkable array of achievements, including worldwide sales exceeding 10 million and a series of chart topping radio hits. With a 15-year career under their belts, P.O.D. has released seven studio albums, received three Grammy Award nominations, contributed to numerous motion picture soundtracks, and toured the world over many times. With their third studio album, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown, they achieved their initial mainstream success - the album was certified Platinum by the RIAA in 2000. Their following studio album, Satellite, continued the band's success with the hit singles, "Alive" and "Youth of the Nation," pushing it to go triple platinum. The band's line-up consists of vocalist Sonny Sandoval, drummer Wuv Bernardo, guitarist Marcos Curiel, and bassist Traa Daniels.
