Friday, March 14, 2014, my third day attending SXSW music festivities, started just after 3 pm. This event was my only excursion outside of live music. Members of Landshark Promotions and DJ Chuck Loesch of 101X "No Control Radio" premiered a CD of the Ronnie James Dio tribute album "This Is Your Life." The three-person panel presented each track from the forthcoming recording featuring an all-star lineup of modern and classic metal artists. It felt good singing along to these majestic reworkings done in the name of charity. 100% of the proceeds will go towards Wendy Dio's "Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund" .

Animals As Leaders will kick off the New Year with a massive headlining North American tour on February 24th with After The Burial, Navene Koperweis, and Chon.
The first batch of dates are listed below and more will be announced in the coming weeks. The debut Sumerian Records album from Animals As Leaders is targeted for March release and a new track will surface online in late January.
Javier Reyes states: "We are definitely very excited about our upcoming headliner as it's been over two years since we did our last headlining North American tour. I think we have chosen a line-up that consist of extremely talented acts. Our labelmates, After the Burial, are a band we have yet to ever share the same stage with, so we are definitely looking forward to that. Ex-AAL drummer Navene Koperweis is coming out and performing solo and Chon are a very cool band we think people will enjoy.
"However, we are mostly excited about finally playing new material. I think some of the new tracks are some of AAL's strongest and musical material yet, so I am looking forward to seeing the crowd reactions. I am really happy how the album is coming out. Everyone who took part with this album (Misha Mansoor, Adam Getgood, Diego Farias, and Navene Koperweis) is extremely talented and I think we've done a great job of capturing it onto what is now the third Animals As Leaders album. See you all soon." More...

After The Burial's new EP, "This Life Is All We Have," is available now on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon MP3 . This three-song release shows the band revamping very early tracks with new vocals from current vocalist Anthony Notarmaso.
This special digital EP was produced, engineered and mixed by renowned producer Terry Date alongside guitarists Justin Lowe and Trent Hafdahl. Lowe states:
"I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who has checked out the streams or even picked up a copy of this new EP. We had always toyed around with the idea of revisiting some of these old jams, but it hadn't really made sense to us yet. However, after talking about it more and more, we realized these are songs we will always play live. Ultimately, we wanted to give you the best representation of what to expect on stage every night, so we decided to go in and recreate these songs for you again from the ground up. When it came to the production, it was an absolute pleasure and honor for us to have the opportunity to work together with Terry Date, which was something we were all very, very excited about.
"Right now we are currently right in the middle of the tracking process of our new album. We're almost finished with the guitars, with just a couple tracks to go. When we track the guitars for our albums we like to take our time getting the good takes, not relying on too much editing. There also usually tends to be changes being made along the way, with new ideas being born within the tracking process.
"If I had to describe the sound of the new material in one shot, it wouldn't be easy. We've dedicated a lot of time working on these songs to make sure that you are hearing something fresh and new. Something that makes you feel good when you hear it. There's some 6,7 and 8 string work in there and also a new lower tuning in C#. It's hard to describe the sound unless you hear it. It's almost 'mechanical' and very percussive. We love trying all sorts of new ideas, sounds, and pushing boundaries of new musical territory that will help set us apart from the rest. We've never been afraid to try anything; we want to keep you on your toes."

The tour includes Expire who played last year, California powerhouse Alpha & Omega, Power Trip who is an up-and-coming hardcore band from Texas, and Twitching Tongues. We're also very excited to have Antagonist A.D. from New Zealand; they are the band coming from the farthest away for the fest.
