Onesidezero Postpone Self-Titled Album Release

The official release date for Onesidezero's self-titled sophomore LP has been pushed back to June 5th. The official explanation is as follows.

"We regret to inform everyone that we have decided to push back our release date a few weeks to June 5th. As many of you might know, our original release date was April 24th, which also happens to be Genocide Memorial Day, a solemn day with many negative connotations within the Armenian community.

As a band with deep roots within that community, we felt it would be inappropriate to release our album on 4/24, so, with the support of our label, we made the agonizing decision to move it back, choosing June 5th as the best available date.

We will, however, be participating in a very special Genocide Awareness benefit on that night (4/24) at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, and hopefully you can all make it down and support this very worthy cause with us."

Onesidezero has also released 2 new downloadable tracks on their MySpace page.

"My Confessions" and "Sleep" are the first two singles from the band’s upcoming Ulrich Wild (Static-X, Stabbing Westward, Pantera, Deftones) produced sophomore release, Onesidezero, in stores June 5th via Corporate Punishment Records.

The band has also lined up the following shows:

March 17th - The Knitting Factory, Hollywood, CA – Special acoustic/electric performance
March 30th - The Key Club, West Hollywood, CA – w/ (hed)pe
April 15th - Bovard Auditorium @ USC, Los Angeles, CA – Silenced Cries: A Benefit for Humanity
April 24th - The Knitting Factory, Hollywood, CA – FourTwentyFour – Recognize the Armenian Genocide Benefit w/ Vokee, Mercenaries

Onesidezero released their Jim Wirt (Incubus, Hoobastank) produced Maverick debut, Is This Room Getting Smaller?, in late 2001, and on the success of singles "Instead Laugh" and "New World Order" went on to tour with the likes of Incubus, 311, Static-X, and Soulfly, as well as garnering glowing press in Blender, FHM, Variety, Guitar World, Guitar One, and Metal Edge, and a live performance with Linkin Park on HBO’s concert series Reverb.
