Fair To Midland Signs To Season Of Mist

Season of Mist has just inked a European deal with Texan lunatics Fair to Midland. "We are filled with excitement to be working with Season of Mist," singer Darroh Sudderth comments. "We're genuinely proud of this new record and believe our European listeners/friends are in for a pleasant surprise. We are antsy as hell to get back overseas!"

Fair to Midland's new full-length is entitled "Arrows and Anchors" and will be released in the early summer. "We are a band that makes albums and this is the best one that we've ever made. It might be the heaviest non-metal album you will hear this year," adds Darroh. The follow-up to "Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True" has been produced by Joe Barresi (TOOL, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, COHEED AND CAMBRIA).

Since the release of "Fables From a Mayfly" in 2007, the band has shared the stage with bands such as the Smashing Pumpkins, Flyleaf, Chevelle, Dir en Grey, Alice In Chains, and Serj Tankian throughout the U.S. & Europe. The band has made appearances at festivals such as Coachella, Bamboozle, Download Festival, Rock AM Ring and Rock IM Park.

Periphery Comments On North American Tour

Maryland based six-piece Periphery is embarking on a North American tour alongside Fair To Midland and Scale The Summit.

Guitarist Alex Bois states: “This tour couldn't have come at a better time! We are fresh off of our first UK/EU tour and hungry to return to our home crowds. We've all been HUGE fans of both bands for a while now and it will be great to finally share the road/stage with them. I think our styles compliment each other in such a way that this tour will be educational, as it is exciting. Our new Icarus Lives EP will also be released on April 19th, so we're also stoked to be showcase some tracks from it.

“We just drove over 1,400 miles to Houston to start our tour with Fair to Midland and Scale the Summit. Unfortunately, FTM and STS had to pull-out of the first four dates in Texas due to an illness but fear not, we are still playing those venues on those dates as a headliner with a go-go-gadget extendo set-list for all to enjoy. Well, all except today in Houston where we decided to find our own venue (house of creeps) and do a completely free show! Yes, our show is cheaper than Walmart or Target.

“We'll meet up with our boys in FTM and STS on Tuesday in Arizona and begin bamboozling North America. Both of these bands are amazing and were stoked to see everyone's reactions to such a tasty line-up. See you all soon.”

The band's upcoming dates are as follows:

Fair To Midland Working On New Material

Fair To Midland is working on new material. They've issued the following update on it:

"The writing process is well underway for the as-yet-unnamed followup to 'Fables.' This is particularly exciting for us because it will be our first album of all-new material since we released 'inter.funda.stifle' 4 years ago. We are more focused than I can remember being in quite some time, and working more like we did back when we were writing for inter.funda, feeling like there's no direction we can't take. "If it feels right and sounds cool, do it" seems to be the motto of the moment.

"The sound so far seems to be going in a little bit darker and more cynical direction, probably a result of 2 years of roughing it on the road, but it's not without some cool tongue-in-cheek moments as well.

"We're looking forward to letting everybody hear some stuff, but until then here's some great photos by Isaac Flores to at least give you guys a peek at what we're up to."

Ozzfest 2008 Rumours Begin To Surface

Bands for the limited run dates which will make up OZZFEST 2008 have started to surface. Like 2007, a shortened tour is expected, with rumored artists for this year’s lineup possibly featuring the likes of:

OZZY OSBOURNE
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS
SERJ TANKIAN
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE
CAVALERA CONSPIRACY
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
FILTER
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN
BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME
TESTAMENT
FAIR TO MIDLAND

…more rumors TBA

It’s presently unclear whether the ‘freefest’ model will be adopted for this year or whether or not Ozzy will ship out by his lonesome or be joined by his fellow Birmingham compatriots for another BLACK SABBATH run.

Press from October of last year points to the likelihood of the former, rather than another reunion. The aging rocker was quoted as saying, “as far as I know” when quizzed over his headlining the summer roadshow. Regarding Sabbath he simply stated, “I’m the last person to be told anything. I’d love to do another [Black] Sabbath album. There are a bunch of things written. But the problem I’m having is it’s got to be at least on the same level as when we departed. If it’s not, then what’s the point in doing it?”

OZZFEST 2007 featured the following criterion:

1. Tickets/Entrance was free
2. Ozzy Osbourne headlined (…and debuted new music from Black Rain)
3. It was a 25-date haul that kicked off in LA on July 7
