Vincent Castiglia To Appear On National Geographic

World-renowned surrealist Vincent Castiglia is pleased to announce that the National Geographic Channel’s “Taboo” will be airing a special segment on Tuesday, June 18th at 10:00pm ET specifically dedicated to him, his artwork, and technique — including his process of blood collection and live painting.

The special also includes interviews with several other acclaimed artists about Vincent’s work. Check out a clip of the segment here.

“I'm honored to be profiled by National Geographic. Because my work is so intensely personal, I really couldn't have imagined it gaining popularity among such a broad audience,” states Castiglia. “But, I believe it is because it's themes deal with so many universal aspects of human experience, in addition to the medium I work in being the common bond flowing through all of our veins, that the work becomes entirely accessible. Like a transfusion administered, the viewer shares in my life and can partake in my own experiences directly, through these organic 'windows to the psyche'.” More...

Legion Announces New Album Release

Ohio metal act Legion has announced debut album "Woke" is due out July 30th. The band has wrapped up the recording process with producer Daniel Laskiewicz of The Acacia Strain and has vowed to release its most ferocious material to date.

Vocalist Mike Guilford comments: "I speak for the entire band when I say we're very excited. We have put a lot of honesty and aggression into 'Woke'. Hopefully this record opens everyone's eyes the way it has opened ours."

The band is currently wrapping up tour dates with Bermuda and will finish with a highlighted performance at Santos Party House in New York City. The following press release was also issued about the impending album:

"Legion’s forthcoming debut album for eOne Music delivers upon the promise put down by their devastating EPs. No stone is left unturned when it comes to Legion’s targets, from the government to the church. Legion speaks their minds, musically and lyrically, without compromise.

"Columbus, Ohio has produced many celebrated 'scene' bands, but Legion actively chose another route. They didn’t base their career plans on the accumulation of Internet hype nor on cookie-cutter music designed to cater to a specific crowd. They went against the grain, on the path of resistance, decidedly choosing hard work and originality.

"No choreographed stage moves. Legion isn’t following the scene blueprint. Legion is all about a genuine connection with their fans through authentic expression. Ultimately, Legion looks to create music that inspires listeners to be themselves. They are believers in the power of creativity and artistic achievement."

In anticipation of forthcoming album, "Late For Nothing," IWrestledABearOnce has debuted the first new song, “Thunder Chunky,” today at ArtistDirect.com. Check it out here or in the player below.

The band’s third studio album will be released on August 6th via Century Media Records. “Thunder Chunky” is IWABO’s first released song with new queen of scream Courtney LaPlante, who joined the band last summer during the Vans Warped Tour.

"Thunder Chunky is the first track on Late For Nothing and also serves as the perfect bridge between our last album and this one,” says guitarist/programmer Steven Bradley. “It combines a lot of different heavier styles, but always finds its way back to the chorus melody that creeps in during the song's intro. It's also a great way for people to hear Courtney for the first time, since it shows off a lot of her amazing vocal range in both the singing and screaming departments. We hope that everybody enjoys it, and we can't wait to show you even more songs off of our most diverse album to date!" More...
