The No Label Needed Series presented by Scion in collaboration with MetalInsider.net is helping one lucky band leave labels behind and take on the industry all on their own.

At www.metalinsider.net/nolabelneeded thousands of Metal bands entered, twenty finalists were selected and one winner was voted on by a panel artists, agents, writers and managers. The winning band, IRON THRONES of Minneapolis, MN, was announced on April 1st and provided opportunities to get all the help and education they need to become a truly self-sufficient artist without having to sign a traditional record deal.

Their website will be re-designed, their merch re-imagined and radio and press campaigns mounted to promote their EP by the best in their fields.
The series is not only meant to be a learning experience for one band, it is meant to teach any dedicated musician who wants to learn how to properly market their craft. Readers will be able to interact with contest partners and contributing musicians and professionals through the site to get some real insight into specific areas of expertise.

In This Moment has announced that they will be entering the studio next month to record their third album. A message from the band reads as follows:
"First things first...
"Thank you to all our friends/fans/family that came out and supported us on our first headlining tour, we have been on a crazy roller coaster ride since 2006 and we owe it all to you, thank you! We are going into 2010 with a recharged spirit and a whole new attitude. At the moment we are still writing songs for our third album and we are really happy with what we have so far. The plan is to start recording in mid-February with Kevin Churko and have everything done by June in time for a summer release. We have some really exciting summer tour plans that we cant wait to tell you about really soon.
"As far as direction for the new album everyone in the band is feeling a heavier/ darker vibe. We want the lush production and melodic layers from the The Dream with the raw power and aggression from Beautiful Tragedy all mixed together. We are the kind of band that musically does what we want, from the heart, we do not follow trends or fads, the new ITM album will be no exception. We are writing from our heart and I can promise you what you hear from us next will be 100% THE REAL DEAL, no flavor of the week bullshit here. We are counting on you, our friends/fans/family to keep spreading the word, get people excited, get everyone fired up for round 3! We wouldn't be anything without our fans!
"Much love and luck for 2010, here's to all your dreams becoming reality!"
In This Moment has issued the following statement about canceling their Las Vegas show at the last minute:
"We owe everyone who came out to see us us last night a huge thank you and our sincere apology, Las Vegas has always been a huge supporter of us and its been almost a full year since we last played for you, we were so excited about this show and so bummed that it got canceled at the last minute.....this is the explanation we were given for why the show was shut down..... I guess the venue got hit with a last minute safety inspection and had no time to correct the violations, we found out they pulled the plug on the show about an hour before doors leaving us no time to relocate the show or even inform our fans of the situation........I apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation caused anyone.........We promise to make this show up to you....we love Las Vegas and cant wait to rock with you all again soon!"
Motionless In White just released a cover of Rob Zombie's "Dragula" on their MySpace player just in time for Halloween. The band posted the following update about it:
"We are so excited for this Halloween weekend, is everyone ready for it?. Along with the costume's, the parties and the candy, we've added to the celebration and recorded a cover song for you all. We decided to cover Rob Zombie's song, "Dragula" and it's now up on our Myspace page.
"We chose to do Rob Zombie's Dragula because we really wanted to do a cover song as sort of a Halloween surprise for our fans and give everyone something new to listen to while we are finishing up our new record. We didn't want to cover a rap or pop song but rather really wanted to embrace the fact that we are different and do something that would be a challenge and shock people as well as having it be something that fit our style and our image perfectly. Rob Zombie in our eyes is a hero and one of the front runners of shock rock and we definitely idolize him as an artist and musician. We feel that Dragula is one of the most Badass songs that was ever written in that genre and are honored to have been able to incorporate our own "Motionless In White style" to it. We really hope everyone loves it and thank you so so much to all of our amazing fans who have been keeping us going! Happy Halloween!"

Chris from In This Moment blogged about their experience on the Warped Tour.
"As I write this update we are 11 days away from the end of Warped Tour 2009 - I am in a hotel room in Boise, ID on one of our last days off for the tour. We went into Warped Tour thinking we knew what to expect (we've done 2 Ozzfest's and numerous other festivals) but we quickly realized that Warped Tour is a completely different animal.
"It’s a huge mix of people from all walks of life. Most of them are kids under 18, it has been an amazing opportunity for us to reach a brand new audience that have never heard of us before (Thanks Kevin Lyman). We started the tour thinking its an alternative music fest and we have lots of new songs that aren't just metal that would probably appeal to the "Warped Tour audience" and yet again we came to realize we had no idea what the "Warped Tour audience" was."
"One of the best things we came up with was to go out into the crowd on the last song and try and get a circle pit going around us, and even better than that....an all girl circle pit...turns out Warped Tour is the perfect place to get a huge all girl circle pit going.....and I gotta say its a pretty cool feeling to stand in the middle of a bunch of girls who are circle pitting around you..."

In This Moment are currently on tour in Japan. Guitarist Chris Howorth has checked in with the following tour update: "Hello Believers!
"I am writing from my hotel room in Osaka, Japan. This is our third day here and its been an exciting trip so far, we flew in two days ago and it was a hellish flight, after 10+ hours in a tiny seat with no air vents and some really nasty smelling food we arrived in Tokyo only to be stuck on the plane for an additional 45 minutes due to swine flu quarantine procedures. It was so bizzare; we likened it to the scene in E.T. when the govenment tents off the house and storm in with all the hazmat gear on, or the scene in Alien 3 when they show up to take Ripley off the planet, we are talking hazmat suits, face masks, goggles, gloves taped on, the works. They filmed us with an infra-red camera and questioned everyone (God help the poor bastard who flies to Japan with a stuffy nose or something). More...

In This Moment has issued the following update about their tour alongside Papa Roach and Filter:
"I am writing this from our dressing room in Berlin after an amazing show along side Papa Roach and Filter, This tour has been so great for us, all the shows are sold out and all the fans are going nuts every night, ITM was welcomed with open arms by the entire Papa roach band and crew, and sharing the bus with Filter has been an absolute pleasure they are great people. Unfortunatly for Filter their guitarist Mitch had a personal issue at home and had to leave the tour immediatly, so Jesse, Blake and myself stepped up to the plate and took over guitar duties for the remainder of the tour, and let me tell you its a big deal for us, we have been listening to Filter since back in the day and getting onstage and playing with them is a fucking thrill!
"We basically split the set into 2 songs each Jesse does the first 2 songs Blake the second 2 and I close the show with Jurassitol and Hey Man Nice Shot, like I said before its a thrill, Filter has sold 6 million records and we get to play sold out European shows with them, its pretty damn cool. We are heading home in 6 days and its gonna be nice to get back to the USA for a couple of weeks then off to Japan and then Warped Tour, see you there!!!"

IN THIS MOMENT’s highly acclaimed new album, "The Dream," debuted at #70 on the Billboard Top 200 chart this week, which also marks the group’s first Billboard entry. This is over a 150% increase in sales from their previous album, "Beautiful Tragedy," in a marketplace that is at best half of what it was at the time of their debut release.
The band kicked off a massive North American tour last week joining up with Five Finger Death Punch, Bury Your Dead and Another Black Day. The two month long trek features the band in the direct support slot so fans can expect a 45 minute set, which also serves as the launch of their worldwide touring campaign for their sophomore release.
Chris Howorth (guitars) further comments: "IN THIS MOMENT would like to give a huge thank you to all our friends and fans who went out and bought our new CD last week. Not only did we have more than 100% increase over our last disc's first week tally, but we debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart right out of the gates. We couldn't be more proud. We have been blessed with the best fans. We are about a week into our tour with 5FDP and it’s off to a roaring start. The whole Five Finger camp welcomed us in with open arms and we are really happy to be out on tour with good friends. All the shows are packed and the fans are loving every band on the tour. It's a really diverse line up so there is something for everyone. Don't miss it."
