The Paramedic Headed Out On Tour

Hot on the heels of new album “Diary Of My Demons,” The Paramedic will hit the road with Sycamour (Hopeless Records) in November and Along Came A Spider (Standby Records) in December. All dates are listed below.

The band also just announced the addition of Chris Hollywood (formerly of Black Veil Brides) on guitar. This move has been years in the making as guitarist Jake Nolan commented, "Chris and I grew up and learned how to play guitar together. We know each other inside and out as musicians and people. We were in a shitty punk band growing up and ended up parting ways for some reason. Him and Andy got BVB going and I got The Paramedic going. When we wrote Diary Of My Demons, I put in so much guitar work without even thinking about who was going to play the extra guitar parts. When it came down to it and we had to play the songs live, I knew there was only one person I had to have backing me up. So I gave him a call. I'm happy to be back on stage with him."

Chris also checked in to say, "I'm so excited to re-join The Paramedic after being out in LA for several years with my old band. 'Diary Of My Demons' is a powerful and emotional record that I immediately fell in love with. I grew up with Jake from an early age and have always believed in his talent and I'm pumped to be able to share the stage with him and the rest of the guys in the band." More...

Along Came A Spider Comments On New Album

Along Came A Spider's sophomore album, "Resurgence," is now seeing release through Standby Records, which follows previous release "If We Were Normal Men."

The album includes hidden gems like a homage to the Zelda game series and a guest spot by The Color Moral's very own Garret Rapp.

Along Came A Spider recorded "Resurgence" at Studio D inside the Agota Concert theater with producer Don Debiase (Modern Day Escape, For All Those Sleep). Guitarist Justin Sobota had this to say about the time spent at Studio D with Debiase:

"This album is our best work yet. everyone buckled down and worked very hard on each and every part of every song. Not a single chord, note, harmony, or progression was by accident or unplanned. We spent hours on each song, molding them into what we wanted. The great thing is, is that we created a cohesive album that blends many of our favorite styles together. It's more mature and more meaningful than anything we have done before. We are so proud of this album and we hope that it stamps our name in the metal core genre." More...

Along Came A Spider Signs To Standby Records

Standby Records announces today the signing of Cleveland modern metal band Along Came A Spider. A video announcement of the signing can be viewed below, and the "If We Were Normal Men" album is slated for release on October 30th. Standby Records also commented:

"Formed at the end of 2009 by guitarist Justin Sobota, Along Came A Spider has spent the last few years developing a lineup that featured the talent at each position in the band needed to reach further than the small confines of the Ohio metal community. Like so many bands signed to Standby Records, CEO Neil Sheehan was drawn to the band not only by their brilliant sound which has been compared to acts like A Day To Remember, In Fear And Faith and Bless The Fall, but also to the band's proven drive to succeed in a business that has gobbled up and spit out so many other bands of lesser work ethic."

"Along Came A Spider gets it," adds Neil Sheehan. "This is a band that understands that the songs are only one piece of the puzzle, but that the work they will have to do will make the difference between their success and failure. Clearly the band has already proven that kind of work ethic. They have self funded everything in their career to this point, including two tours and the recording of their soon to be released album If We Were Normal Men. Regarding the title of the new album, it has significance to the band's members, who named the album to indicate the band's feeling about their desire and skills." More...
