"Hello everyone. We hope this email finds you well. As Christmas approaches, we have a moment at home to spend with our friends and families and reflect on all this year has given us.
"This year has been quite a journey. A new beginning, a season of hope and perseverance. We’re thankful for those of you who have joined us on this journey. This year has found us in Japan, Russia, Australia and all corners of the US. We have had a chance to reconnect with you, our fans, and hear your stories of how music has touched you through the years. We have also found ourselves in practice spaces in Texas, California and Georgia working on new music together.
"This is where our story continues. With Pledgemusic we have begun a new journey of sharing these new songs with you. The experience has been extremely rewarding so far. Sharing our process with you has allowed us to open up and connect with you and each other as a band, like never before. We love hearing your feedback and how you feel about our new creations. We’re so thankful for those of you who have pledged and joined in the process with us.
"We would like to give you a sneak peek at a new song we played out live in Texas for the first time. This track is called 'City Kids' and it is a taste of whats to come. We have many other songs to share with you as the process continues, but we leave you this song of reflection and reminiscence.
"We hope you feel the joy and warmth of this holiday season as we celebrate the King of Love, who came as a baby to save the world."

The 2009 line-up for the nationally renowned festival centrally located in the heart of the country will be highlighted by performances from some of rock’s biggest artists including Mötley Crüe, Slipknot, Alice In Chains, Avenged Sevenfold and Korn.
“We try to listen to our fans and they've been saying for years that we should play at Rock On The Range,” said Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe.
“We're really excited to play one of America's great rock festivals,” SLIPKNOT’s Corey Taylor says, “Being asked to headline Rock on the Range is an absolute pleasure! Columbus, Ohio has always been very good to us. The line-up looks great; the shows look fantastic. And I personally think it will be an absolute blast for everyone. See you in May!”

Flyleaf was forced to drop off of the tour with Seether for at least a week due to Flyleaf's singer, Lacey, having lost her voice. Seether will still be appearing "and is very excited about the upcoming shows in Chicago, Covington, Charlotte, Indianapolis and Cleveland."
Additionally, the Chicago show has been moved to The Vic Theatre. All other venues remain unchanged.
Seether had to end their show early at The Palladium in Worcester, MA last night when vocalist Shaun Morgan became ill due to a 24-hour bug. "Shaun is doing fine now, resting, and from the looks of it, no future shows will be affected," the band states.
Seether is currently on tour with Flyleaf, then will head to Europe for a number of festival appearances before returning to the US for another headlining run of tour dates, most with Finger Eleven as support. Their latest tour dates are as follows: More...
Tenth Street Entertainment — which represents MÖTLEY CRÜE — has shot down as (at least partially) "blatantly false and completely unfounded" Internet rumors that CRÜE will headline a festival-type tour called "Cruefest", with support from several other artists from the Tenth Street management stable, including BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH, SIXX: A.M. and DROWNING POOL. According to Tenth Street, CRÜE's April 15 press conference/announcement in Los Angeles will relate to "a few" (but presumably not all) of the following artists:
PUDDLE OF MUDD
THEORY OF DEADMAN
THREE DAYS GRACE
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
BELLE & SEBASTIAN
3 DOORS DOWN
All four members of CRÜE will be present at the April 15 press conference at a location yet to be determined for what the release hyped as "by far...one of the biggest music announcements of the year!!" The band is also launching a contest in which one grand prize winner from each major city in the country will be flown to Los Angeles to cover the announcement, complete with a chance to interview the band and have the interview broadcast live. Details can be found at the official CRÜE site.
Texas-based band FLYLEAF has issued the following update:
"[On] November 29th we will be playing an exclusive six-song set for charity, sponsored by The Edge in Dallas. If you're in the Dallas area now, go to KDGE's website, for more details on how you can get it. It also supports a great cause, and proceeds benefit World Vision charities!"
Released on October 30, the special edition two-disc version of FLYLEAF's debut album builds on the success of "All Around Me", now in its seventh month out, and breaking into the Top 5 at Modern Rock radio. It's the third single from the album, following "I'm So Sick" and "Fully Alive" — and the video clips for all three were included on the bonus DVD. (The video for "All Around Me" was shot by visionary director Paul Fedor, whose credits include EVANESCENCE, MARILYN MANSON, and 30 SECONDS TO MARS. The videos for "I'm So Sick" and "Fully Alive" were directed by the Brothers Strause, who've worked with A PERFECT CIRCLE, LINKIN PARK, GODSMACK, STAIND, and others.)
In addition, special exclusive acoustic versions of "All Around Me", "I'm So Sick" and "Fully Alive" plus "Cassie" and "Red Sam", were included on both the CD and DVD configurations. The new package also contains a full-color FLYLEAF locker poster, and access to free "All Around Me" ringtone and wallpaper.
There's a new teaser (apparently the third installment) for Flyleaf's Special Edition CD/DVD coming out on October 30th. You can check out the video of an acoustic version of "I'm So Sick" on YouTube or the band's MySpace page. The next teaser will be announced Friday. More...

FLYLEAF has announced the details of the rescheduled dates which were postponed last month singer so that frontwoman Lacey Mosley could recover from "intense temporary throat damage." The new tour dates are as follows:
Jun. 19 - Columbus, OH @ Newport Music Hall
Jun. 22 - Minneapolis, MN @ Myth
Jun. 23 - Madison, WI @ Barrymore Theatre
Jun. 25 - Chicago, IL @ House of Blues
Jun. 26 - Cincinatti, OH @ Bogart's
FLYLEAF has also been confirmed for Summerfest in Milwaukee on June 28.
FLYLEAF has postponed five dates on its current headlining tour in order to allow singer Lacey Mosley to rest her vocal cords. She has issued the following statement on the matter:
"I'm so sorry, everyone. We have been working very hard to get to see all of you and play in all of your towns. We have gotten so many beautiful letters and gotten to talk to so many of you these past three years of touring and as far as I can remember we have only had to postpone one other show. I guess what we have learned is that we are not robots and we can't treat ourselves like it. My voice has been acting up this whole tour. When I went to the doctor she looked at my vocal chords and immediately started to reprimand me for the damage I had done. 'Didn't you know your voice was not well?' 'Yes, that's why I came here.' Appalled, she said, 'And still you continued to sing??' 'It's my job,' I said. And very matter of factly she stated, 'Not for long if you continue this way.' So I was ordered to be silent for five days. I'm sorry about all the shows being postponed, but we will come back and hopefully all of you will too. Thank you for your prayers, patience and understanding."
The affected dates are as follows:
April 11 - Columbus
April 13 - Detroit
April 14 - Cincinnati
April 15 - Chicago
April 17 - Madison More...
