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.”

Onward To Olympas has issued the following update regarding the departure of their vocalist/guitarist Justin Gage and their progress on their new album:
"Hello everyone. We have this announcement today to mention a few things that we thought we should let you know about. First, we are entering the studio tomorrow and are beyond excited to record this new CD. We feel like a lot of you will enjoy it like we do. First off, we are here to inform you of the departure of our guitarist/clean vocalist, Justin Gage. Justin has been in this band from the start of the restoration of OTO, almost three years ago. He's helped out a lot financially, musically, and was involved a lot of the business aspect of the band. Justin has a great opportunity to go back to school and lead worship and be the youth pastor at a church. This was too good of an opportunity for him to pass up, so he is not able to tour with Onward To Olympas any longer." More...
