ABOUT ERRA:
Erra is a four piece progressive metalcore band hailing from Birmingham, Alabama that formed in 2009. Their namesake comes from Akkadian mythology and represents mayhem (something that comes to mind when giving them a listen). The band, consisting of Garrison Lee, Jesse Cash, Alan Rigdon, and Alex Ballew, solidified their technical sound after relentlessly practicing and writing. They take their influences from well respected groups like Misery Signals, Born of Osiris, As I Lay Dying and Saosin, and thrive on being creative and showcasing their talent through their intense live performances. Erra takes great pleasure in offering their refreshing sound in a sometimes stale and over-saturated market. It’s not about fashion or status; it’s about using raw talent and energy to create genuine songs that will give hope to the listener.
Their latest offering Augment will be released on Tragic Hero Records and maintains their technical ability, while presenting songs with the potential to embrace a broader audience. The word “Augment” means to enhance or grow, which is what the band believes they have achieved on this album. “It’s a very appropriate title based on everything we are trying to accomplish and all the growth we have gone through since our last record,” says guitarist Jesse Cash. “Nothing is taken away or watered down, only improved upon, and if anything, we accentuated all the parts that people wanted to hear more of this time around.”
The band has toured extensively with The Plot In You, MyChildren, MyBride, Fit For a King and performed at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, which featured Anthrax, Hatebreed, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Suicidal Tendencies, etc. Erra doesn’t let success go to their heads though; their true idea of success hinges on bringing a product that has replay value for years to come.

EVERYONE DIES IN UTAH ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THEIR NEW ALBUM “NEUTRAL GROUND”

(Temple, TX) – Everyone Dies In Utah has announced the release of their new full-length album on Tragic Hero Records. The record is called Neutral Ground and is set to come out 11/19/13. The band worked with platinum producer Jim Wirt (Something Corporate, Incubus, Hidden in Plain View) at his Cleveland, OH recording space, Crushtone Studios. “Working with Jim was awesome,” says vocalist Danny Martinez. “He pushed me to levels I didn’t even know I was capable of. It’s definitely the most cohesive and mature album we have ever done.”
About Everyone Dies In Utah:
Teetering between breakneck brutality and elegant, entrancing melody, the Temple, TX quintet formed in 2008, consisting of Danny Martinez (Vocals, Keys, Synth), Trey Golden (Keys, Synth), Keaton Smith (guitar), Brandon Stoltz (guitar), Nolan Bailey (bass) and Ricky Williams (drums). The name of the band began as a joke, but stuck with them as time went on. It derives from the fact that the death rate in Utah was at one time higher than any other state.

So far, Everyone Dies In Utah has continually connected on a deep level with its passionate fan base. Since hitting the scene, they’ve attracted a rabid audience over the course of their self-released EP, I Hope You Realize This Means War in 2009 and then Seeing Clearly. They’ve also toured tirelessly with bands such as Affiance, Sirens and Sailors, Bleach Blonde, The Overseer and more. They know that it is very important to be accessible to their fans and do not plan on getting off the road any time soon
