Fire From The Sky has received rave reviews and accolades pointing to some of the band’s most complex and melodic material in years.

"Heavy, grim...its best songs will remind listeners of Metallica." 4/5 Stars - Revolver Magazine

"Shadows Falls (and producer/co-songwriter Adam Dutkiewicz) tackle our end times with aplomb. There’s a little something for everyone here, be it old-school thrash, hardcore sing-alongs, awesome solos, radio-friendly choruses, scream/sung dueling vocals...and that's just the first song ("The Unknown")...a duality that a modern-day Metallica would love to master." - Decibel Magazine

"Fire from the Sky is a great example of the Shadows Fall sound: amazingly energetic drums; thrashy, precise guitars; a mixture of screamed and melodic vocals; and impeccable production values...There's hardly a weak moment to be found on Fire From the Sky, and every Shadows Fall fan will be pleased." - Outburn Magazine

"Fire From The Sky is another compelling addition to their catalog...a leaner, meaner and thrashier take on their signature metalcore sound...the quintet's energy bursting from the speakers...A damn fine metal record" 3 ½ /4 Stars - Alternative Press Magazine

"SF's aggressive, thrashing abandon, musical sophistication, and melodies co-exist in near perfect balance." - All Music

"With Fire From the Sky Shadows Fall have further proven why they're one of the most thrilling heavy metal acts of the last 20 years." - AOL Noisecreep

DAR WILLIAMS KICKS OFF FALL HEADLINING TOUR

DAR WILLIAMS KICKS OFF FALL HEADLINING TOUR

New Studio Album - In The Time Of Gods (Razor & Tie) - Out Now


"Dar Williams, one of America's very best singer-songwriters...Her songs are beautiful. Some are like finely crafted short stories. They are, variously, devastatingly moving, tenderly funny, subtle without being in any way inaccessible, and utterly fresh-not a cliche or a clunker in her entire songbook." -The New Yorker

"Known for her lyrical, evocative songwriting and singing...Ms. Williams has been a leading figure in the folk-rock world for nearly 20 years." -Wall Street Journal

"Seasons change, but Williams remains both ambitious and pleasingly plainspoken." -Rolling Stone

"A new generation of pop-folk enthusiasts lauds her as one of the genre's central figures." -Paste

"One of our most thoughtful singer-songwriters." -New York Daily News


New York, NY - Thursday, September 13, 2012 - Renowned singer-songwriter Dar Williams kicks off a U.S. tour today, September 13th. The national headlining tour will make stops from New York to Alaska, and also includes a series of co-headlining dates with Loudon Wainwright III (full tour dates below). Dar Williams released her ninth studio album, In The Time Of Gods, this April 2012 on Razor & Tie. Interviews and photos are available upon request.

In The Time Of Gods, Dar's first album of original material in four years was produced by Kevin Killen (U2, Elvis Costello, and Peter Gabriel), and features special guests Shawn Colvin and Larry Campbell, and a remarkable set of musicians including Charley Drayton, Gerry Leonard, and Rob Hyman. Williams presents 10 original compositions on In The Time Of Gods, which explores many of today's most challenging social issues told against the parables of Greek mythology. The inimitable collection of songs includes some of the richest and most evocative writing of Williams' career.

One of the most lauded singer-songwriters of her generation, Dar Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the early '90s. As documented on her last album, the 2010 two-disc retrospective Many Great Companions, Williams' growth as an individual over her almost two-decade-long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist. She has toured with such distinguished artists as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, and Shawn Colvin, and recently became a regular contributor to the Huffington Post's Green Blog. When not on the road, Dar will also be teaching a course at Wesleyan University entitled, "Music Movements in a Capital Democracy," throughout November 2012.

NONPOINT'S NEW SELF-TITLED ALBUM NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ON iTUNES - HERE (OUT OCTOBER 9TH - RAZOR & TIE)

Nonpoint On The Road Now


(New York, NY) - Nonpoint's forthcoming new, self-titled album is available now for pre-order on iTunes HERE (http://glob.ly/2vM) for a limited time for $8.99 and includes iTunes LP, a bonus studio track and also a new in-studio piece specifically shot for this digital edition. Nonpoint (Razor & Tie) was produced/mixed by Grammy Nominated Producer, Johnny K (Disturbed, Staind, Megadeth) and also features some additional production and mixing from Brian Virtue (30 Seconds To Mars, Chevelle).

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.

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 now top 25 at active rock radio.

Nonpoint is currently on the road for a headline tour that will run through November. The band recently wrapped a summer run with Call Me No One to preview new music.

P.O.D.'S SINGLE "LOST IN FOREVER" HITS #1 AT ACTIVE ROCK RADIO

P.O.D.'S SINGLE "LOST IN FOREVER" HITS #1 AT ACTIVE ROCK RADIO

Band Currently On The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival

New Studio Album- Murdered Love - (Razor & Tie) Out Now


(New York, NY) - "Lost In Forever," P.O.D.'s first single off their new studio album, Murdered Love has hit #1 at Active Rock Radio (#1 on BDS). This is P.O.D.'s first-ever number one single at the Active Rock format and also the first number one charting Active Rock track for the band’s new label partners at Razor & Tie. The video for "Lost In Forever" has also already generated over 2.1 million combined views and can be seen here - WATCH HERE.

P.O.D. front man Sonny Sandoval sends thanks to fans, "We're just thankful for all the love coming our way."

"'Lost In Forever' was one of the first demos we heard from P.O.D. when we first met with the band over a year ago. We immediately felt it could be a great first look to begin their re-introduction to Radio. Seeing it go to all the way to #1 is a thrill for all of us," adds John Franck Senior Vice President of Marketing for Razor & Tie. "We congratulate P.O.D. on this great achievement and also Razor & Tie's SVP of Promotion Kurt Steffek for leading the charge on the label's behalf." Murdered Love is P.O.D.'s long-awaited follow-up to When Angels & Serpents Dance. The album 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.

P.O.D. is currently on the third annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival alongside multiplatinum rock bands Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach. The tour wraps on September 30th in Albuquerque, NM (full tour dates below).

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.

Murdered Love Press Raves:

"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." -
Revolver Magazine

"SoCal rap-metal band brings back the boom after a four-year absence, sounding like the hook-laden harbinger of a spiritual apocalypse. The mix of metal, dub and hip-hop recalls 1999's The Fundamental Elements of Southtown and 2001's Satellite." - USA Today

"...On the best form since their breakthrough album and career highlight, Satellite." - Metal Hammer

"The songs all bear the band's trademark heavy groove that is nicely accentuated by Sonny Sandoval's unique rap-influenced delivery..the ultra-melodic tunes "Higher" and "Lost In Forever", for me they have the perfect blend of heaviness and melody. Murdered Love is the band's best effort in many years." - Puregrainaudio

"Murdered Love is purportedly a back to basics affair that finds the band re-investigating their initial influences of rap, punk rock, and reggae."- AllMusic

"P.O.D. comes out swinging like the four riders of the apocalypse... Murdered Love is a return to the bare-knuckled, breakdown-laced fusion of hip-hop, hardcore and ska-rock found on the multi-platinum Satellite." - Google Music

Fans won't want to miss the iconoclastic English singer/composer/arranger/keyboardist and five-time Grammy nominee interpreting Ellington classics, interspersing melodic and rhythmic elements of various compositions in a manner that's consistent with Ellington's own freewheeling approach.

The band will also hit the road this November with Woe is Me, Chunk No Captain Chunk, Our Last Night, Secrets and Capture the Crown (full tour dates below).

The Seeking guitarist/vocalist man Dylan Housewright comments, "We feel so blessed to be a part of the Razor & Tie family. We're very excited to work with them and release our first full length record that we've worked extremely hard on. Be on the lookout for more music from The Seeking coming your way in the future!"

Razor & Tie A&R rep Dylan Chenfeld adds, "Rarely do you hear a band this young who writes songs this well. From the first moment we heard The Seeking we knew there was something special about this band and had to sign them. We're very excited to welcome them to the R&T family."

The Seeking formed in 2010 while still in high school. The group immediately began to stir up buzz locally due to their patented personal style, confidently walking between metal, pop, and hard rock. After a year of writing and performing, they hit the studio with producer Colby Wedgeworth (Ten After Two, The Maine, This Century, Austin Gibbs) to record what would eventually become their debut album Yours Forever. The album fuses together precise metal intensity with impenetrable melodic sensibility, yielding a sound that's utterly undeniable and often uplifting. The Seeking also continually deliver on stage. They've floored crowds at festivals such as Warped Tour and Rock & Roots, and they'll be rarely leaving the road once they embark on their first U.S. jaunt in the fall of 2012.

The Seeking is Taylor Green (Vocals), Dylan Housewright (Guitar/Vocals), Grayson Smith (Guitar), Shane Tiller (Bass), and Ben Wood (Drums) The band is managed Eric Rushing of The Artery Foundation and represented for touring by Matt Anderson of the Pantheon Agency.

The Seeking is the latest addition to independent label Razor & Tie's expanding Rock roster that includes such artists as All That Remains, The Sword, For Today, P.O.D., Such Gold, Nonpoint, Chelsea Grin, Shadows Fall, Norma Jean, Attila, Saves The Day, Hit the Lights, and many more. The New York City-based label is one of the fastest growing independent record companies in the United States, and has garnered both Platinum sales and Grammy awards in its 20-year history.
