ERRA RELEASE THEIR NEW ALBUM “AUGMENT”

(Birmingham, AL) – Today, Tragic Hero Records released the brand new full-length album Augment by progressive metalcore band ERRA. It is currently streaming on the THR YouTube page. The record debuted at No. 2 on iTunes and is also available at the Tragic Hero MerchNow Store.

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.”

Catch ERRA on The Predatour with Ice Nine Kills, Famous Last Words, Sirens & Sailors, and Chasing Safety starting on 11/01/13.
ABOUT ERRA:
ERRA is a five 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, Sean Price 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 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.

FINCH TO RELEASE LIVE CD/DVD CELEBRATING THE 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF WHAT IT IS TO BURN

(Temecula, CA) – Today, the newly reunited rock band Finch has announced that they will release a live CD/DVD celebrating the ten year anniversary of their landmark album What It Is To Burn. The CD/DVD will be released via Tragic Hero Records and was filmed and recorded at The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA where the band performed their full-length in its entirety.

What It Is To Burn – X will be available in stores and online 01/07/14, but pre-orders for the disc and exclusive merch can be placed now at the Tragic Hero MerchNow Store.

Finch is currently on the What It Is To Burn 10 Year Anniversary Tour.
ABOUT FINCH
Formed in Temecula, CA in 1999, the quintet of Nate Barcalow, Alex Linares, Randy Strohmeyer, Alex Pappas and Derrek Doherty known as Finch, are labeled as the fore-fathers of the “screamo” and post hardcore genre. Influenced by the hard leanings of bands like Deftones and Hum, and the pop sensibilities of Jimmy Eat World and Blink-182, Finch began a sonic revolution in popular music that still echoes today.

The band signed to Drive-Thru Records in 2001 after guitarist Strohmeyer sent out a demo to owners Richard and Stephanie Reines while he was working on the label’s street team. Drive-Thru saw something in the Southern California band and decided to take a risk on a sound that was more aggressive than their current range of artists. Their first EP, Falling into Place sold more than 6,000 copies within the first few months and gave them the momentum they needed to create their groundbreaking first album What It Is To Burn. Recorded in the winter of 2001, What It Is To Burn was released the following spring. The album produced three radio hits, charted Number 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and 188 on the Billboard 200.

They spent years touring in support of What It Is To Burn, sharing the stage with the likes of Glassjaw, The Starting Line, Yellowcard, and Blink-182, among others. In 2005, they decided it was time for a follow up, and went in a more artsy direction with Say Hello To Sunshine. Drummer Alex Pappas left the band and was replaced by Marc Allen. After years of heavy touring, the band went on a short hiatus, rejoining one another in 2007 with new bassist Daniel Wonacott to record their self-titled EP. Critics hailed the EP as a return to glory while still adding to their old sound. Finch would tour off the release for a few years until deciding on another break in 2009.

In 2013, Finch reunited to its nearly original lineup and announced that they would embark on the What It Is To Burn Ten Year Anniversary tour. The group performed the full-length in its entirety with a few extra bonuses for fans along the way. One concert in particular in Pomona, CA was filmed and recorded and will be released via Tragic Hero Records on 01/07/14. With no bad blood and everything firing on all fronts, it’s hard to tell what will come next for Finch, but one thing remains certain: all eyes are watching to find out.

ERRA RELEASE THEIR NEW SONG “FROSTBITE”

(Birmingham, AL) – Metalcore quintet ERRA released Frostbite, a new song from their upcoming album Augment, which is available for pre-order on the Tragic Hero MerchNow Store. The song can be streamed via the Tragic Hero Records YouTube page.

“Frostbite highlights the progression of the vocals and melody composition, ” says guitarist Jesse Cash. “It features one of our favorite choruses, so we thought it’d be a good one to put out. It’s a super fast song also. The drumming keeps the energy level relentless throughout. The intensity never lets up for more than a couple seconds before kicking right back into 5th gear.”

Catch ERRA on their CD release tour with Reflections starting on 10/19/13, followed by The Predatour with Ice Nine Kills, Famous Last Words, Sirens & Sailors, and Chasing Safety starting on 11/01/13.

EVERYONE DIES IN UTAH RELEASE THEIR NEW SONG “ITEM NO. 9”

(Temple, TX) – Tragic Hero Records is excited to announce the release of Item No. 9, the new song off Everyone Dies In Utah’s highly anticipated forthcoming album Neutral Ground.

Item No. 9 is an aggressive, synth heavy track, complimented by a haunting vocal melody. “Growing up I always had a different mindset than most people so I was kinda looked at as different or weird,” says vocalist Danny Martinez. “I always dreamed big and although the path I chose to take in life is different than most, it’s taking me places the average path would have never taken me and that’s what this song is about.”

Neutral Ground was produced by Jim Wirt (Incubus, A Skylit Drive, Letter Kills) in his Cleveland, OH recording space Crushtone Studios and is set to come out 11/19/13. Pre-orders are now available at the Tragic Hero MerchNow Store.

(Lodi, CA)- After it’s first week in stores, Rise – the fourth full-length album from A Skylit Drive – debuted at No. 41 and No. 12 on Billboard’s Top 200 and Rock Albums chart, respectively. The 12 song record has been reviewed by critics as the band’s “best work yet.”

ABOUT A SKYLIT DRIVE:
Great vision, that’s what it takes to refuse to rest on previous success and instead focus on what you need to become in the future, which is exactly what Lodi, California’s A Skylit Drive continues to achieve with every album. Vocalist Michael “Jag” Jagmin, guitarist Nick Miller, bassist/screamer Brian White, drummer Cory La Quay and keyboardist Kyle Simmons, officially exploded onto the scene in 2007 with their EP She Watched the Sky. They followed that release up with three full-length albums titled Wires and the Concept of Breathing, Adelphia and Identity on Fire, which all charted on the Billboard Top 200, and their live DVD Let Go of the Wires.

A Skylit Drive has toured extensively with similar artists like Blessthefall, Sleeping with Sirens, Pierce the Veil, and Of Mice & Men; as well as contributing songs to the well known compilations Punk Goes Classic Rock and Punk Goes Pop Vol 4. A Skylit Drive’s musical resume would be enough of a career for most bands, but they have no intentions of slowing down. In fact, the band believes they are just hitting their stride. They released their new single Rise (the title track of their new album) to critical acclaim and assured their fans that this was just a taste of things to come. Rise joins the essential characteristics of A Skylit Drive’s signature sound heard on Wires and the Concept of Breathing while showcasing a wide spectrum of tones, textures and song structure.
