Into Eternity Checks In From The Road

Into Eternity's Troy checked in from the road with the following update:

"It's been a pretty crazy week for all of us in the Into Eternity camp. The insanity began when we found out that Tim would not be coming with us on the Iced Earth tour. Our initial reaction was to cancel, for how could we go on without our founding member? After much discussion, we decided that a replacement shredder would be flown in from New York with only five days of practice, that I would try and figure out how to sing and help out on vocals as best as can be, and that Stu would take over the rest of the vocal responsibilities. Easy, right?

"When we started the 14-hour death drive to the first show in Minneapolis, I can't convey how strange the feeling was of leaving the city without Tim - not to mention that this fill-in shredder had only five days to practice the tunes, and that none of us had ever met him. No worries, right? We arrived in Minneapolis a day early and picked up our new shredder from the airport. It turned out his name was Sean Maier. Sean and Justin worked that night and the next day, and crammed as much into his overloaded head as possible. The first show was definitely not perfect, but as a band we could not believe how well Sean played. There definitely was a collective sense of relief within the band after we realized the first show had passed and no trainwrecks occurred.

"The improvement has been steady with every show. It's awesome to watch such an accomplished musician take on such a huge task and do so well. Beyond his playing abilities, Sean has also become a good friend and fit in to this rolling circus easily. We've unofficially coined this tour the 'Hell or High Water Tour,' for the way we look at it, our backs are against the wall and we have nothing to lose and everything to prove. We've now had seven shows together, and it really is going better than expected. We all owe our thanks to Sean for his relentless hard work and focus. The biggest realization, though, is how accepting our fans have been. The unconditional support we've received through such trying times has been amazing. We cannot thank our fans enough for sticking with us and supporting the band unconditionally. Thanks again, and we'll see you all on the road!"

And now, here's an introduction from Sean Maier: More...

Into Eternity's Tim Roth To Sit Out Fall Tour

"We regret to announce that Tim will not be able to participate in the fall tour, but he's given us his blessing to do the tour without him so we don't have to cancel. Our "official statement" appears below."

"All of us in the band, and especially Tim, have been looking forward to this tour with Iced Earth for months. Over the years, Iced Earth has been a huge influence on INTO ETERNITY, as anyone who owns 'Dead or Dreaming' (which features a picture of Tim wearing an Iced Earth t-shirt) knows." More...

Blessed By A Broken Heart Post New Songs Online

Canadian's finest, BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART, are invading Europe in January and early February for their first full European tour with labelmates Maroon as well as UK darlings Bring Me The Horizon and Architects after playing a sold-out UK only headlining tour with Enter Shikari in 2006.

The group's unique, infectious brand of '80s madness is undeniable, and they deliver a plethora of balls-out, party rock anthems that are so catchy and infectious, they will soon be your new guilty pleasure. This Montreal-based six-piece have put the pedal to the metal and will storm over the Atlantic to steal all our booze and women while having the times of their lives.

Their sophomore, appropriately entitled album "Pedal To The Metal" is scheduled for a release in the spring 2008. The effort was recorded by GGGarth (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kiss, Motley Crue, Rise Against, Atreyu, Biffy Clyro, Nickelback, Rage Against The Machine, Testament) and mixed by Mike Hatalak from It Dies Today who also worked with Roses are Red and Dead Hearts. Make no mistake, this is fun people making music with only one intention in mind: to have a damn good time. More...

Blessed By a Broken Heart Complete New Album

Montreal-based quintet BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART will hit the road on June 16th with A DAY TO REMEMBER. Visit their Myspace page for their complete touring itinerary.

The band just wrapped up the recording process for their new album with GGGarth (ATREYU, TRAPT) and Robbie (groove master) checks in with the following report: "We are very excited to announce that our record is finally done. Let me tell you, this is and will always be the greatest record of all time! Well, except for maybe Rick Astley's Whenever You Need Somebody, but it sure comes close! Anyway, I hope you guys make sure to pick up some Zubaz, Jordache, and LA Gears so you're completely ready for our global takeover!

The new album is now going to be called Pedal To The Metal and will blowout any speakers you play it from. Every song will get you hooked. All of the shreds hit harder and louder. The keyboard we used was actually bought directly from Eddie Van Halen (he was down on his luck and didn't want to just TAKE our money). I hope you are all as stoked as we are. I swear if you guys don't like it, I will eat my zebra spandex. We will have a new song up for you guys as soon as we can. So until then, scope out our summer tour dates and make sure to come out and say what's up."
