Facedown Records has checked in with the following statement about the upcoming Facedown Festival:
"We are very excited to announce that Facedown Fest 2013 will take place on April 12 & 13 at the Stronghold in Chino, CA. The entire active Facedown roster will be playing the event and tickets are just $10 each night! We also have a limited amount of deluxe ticket packages available which include a limited edition screen printed poster, Facedown Fest 2013 root beer, Facedown Fest T-Shirt, Facedown backpack, sunglasses and more!"
Facedown founder Jason Dunn had the following to say about this year’s fest: “Facedown Fest began in 2000 at an amazing venue called the Showcase Theatre. Over the years the fest grew and unfortunately the Showcase theatre had to shut its doors. I loved the energy of those early years from both the bands and the crowd and I am excited to have that again as Facedown Fest returns to a more intimate venue. The people at the Stronghold have been so supportive of our bands and label over the years so it just made sense to do this there. Plus, with the lower overhead we can offer $10 tickets to the people who are responsible for keeping Facedown alive for all of these years. This is one way for us to say thanks and give back to our incredible Family of supporters.”

Digital download store Metalhit.com has launched the first of many future monthly compilations to be available for free download worldwide. Owner, Mike Riddick, comments:
"What’s unique about these monthly compilations is that they will feature as-of-yet unreleased tracks from metal bands spanning a variety of genres. Metalheads want to be ‘in the know’ on the latest titles, and what better way to do this than to offer up legal downloads of the latest from metal’s greatest labels...days-to-weeks before their official release!"
Metalhit’s first compilation includes 11 downloadable tracks from Agoraphobic Nosebleed, While Heaven Wept, Blut Aus Nord, Feral, Necros Christos, Nightshade, Putridity, Satan’s Host, Spearhead, Hope for the Dying, and Leaves’ Eyes.
The compilation can be downloaded at this location. Another set of free songs will be available in May.

Strike First Records has returned after a more than one year hiatus. Here's a message from the label:
"It is a pleasure to announce the newly re-formed Strike First Records. Although the look and roster is new, the goal is the same as it was before: to develop the next generation of heavy bands! In 2006, we decided to take a break on Strike First Records and re-focus our time and energy exclusively into the bands on Facedown Records roster. Well, after 2 years of down time, we've had plenty of time to think about re-launching Strike First and making it better than ever. That time is now and we are excited to announce the first 3 bands signed to the newly formed label.
"HOPE FOR THE DYING is as metal as it gets and hail from Jonesboro, IL. Their self-titled full length album will be the first album we are releasing and will be available on November 25. THE GREAT COMMISSION are turning Southern California upside down with their live show and in your face music and ministry. They will be recording their debut full length at the end of 2008 for an early 2009 release. THROUGH SOLACE are part of the Wales, UK hardcore scene and have released an EP on Holdfast Records. They will be releasing their debut full length with us in early 2009. They have some US dates planned in support of their EP, so make sure to check those out in our tours section. More info can be found on all of these artists by clicking on the Artists section so check that out.
"With a new and refined focus on developing artists in this day and age, this new wave of Strike First releases will be available worldwide through iTunes and other digital distributors like Amazon MP3, Shockhound and more. However, we are not simply focusing on being a "digital only" label as all releases will also be available as limited edition, environmentally friendly physical packaging that is free of plastic jewel cases. These physical copies of all the releases will be available online on the Facedown / Strike First store, as well as other select .com sites (interpunk, smartpunk, revhq.com, bestbuy.com, fye.com, etc…) and of course at all of the bands shows.
"Thank you to everyone that has made this possible and for your support over the years!"
