Until now! We are excited to announce that Shane Tym of Edmonton will be filling the spot. He is a fantastic drummer who is an excellent fit for All Else Fails. You will be able to hear him on our next album, which we are already in the process of writing."

Label head and vocalist/guitarist of Suicidal Bride Records band All Else Fails commented on holding a release party at a strip club rather than the norm of a concert venue: "Watch metal 'rip in a whole new way, no pun intended. I have many reasons for choosing the listening party at Eden. Mainly for the reason that we were just looking for something fun and different for the metal head fans of the label and bands on the compilation plus we think getting a lap dance or two to a ripping metal track is pretty memorable plus my sister works there so I get to make it a family function lol."
