(VANCOUVER, BC) October 12, 2010 – Release Me, the first single from the new self-titled album by Western Canadian rockers Eldebrock (www.Eldebrock.net) is not only skyrocketing with buzz, but now it’s rocking the skies too.   Their new hit song will now be featured nationally and internationally on the Canadian Pop music-only channel on Thomas Cook Airlines in November, December and January.

“In addition to hit makers like Katy Perry, Usher, Sara Bareilles, Good Charlotte, Rihanna and Kings of Leon, we’re always looking for new, breakout artists to feature on our channels,” says Kevin Bolt, Senior Audio Producer with In-Flight Productions, the world’s largest producer of in-flight entertainment.  “Eldebrock has a strong, unmistakable sound and we’re excited to introduce the band to our passengers who want to discover new music first.”

Between 1,000,000 and 1,800,000 passengers are predicted to fly nationally and internationally on Thomas Cook airlines during the upcoming three-month period.

While Release Me flies the friendly skies, the self-titled Eldebrock album remains grounded and is continuing to build momentum throughout Canada and The United States.

The album was mixed by industry heavyweight Michael Wagener and produced by Ryan Andersen.

Wagener, whose works have sold more than 93 million albums worldwide, has worked on some of rock’s most respected albums including Metallica’s Master of Puppets, Skid Row’s self-titled debut and Ozzy Osbourne’s No More Tears.  Credits for Andersen include Nickelback’s The Long Road and All the Right Reasons.

Earlier this year, the band decided to give back in a big way and reached out globally by partnering with the UICC – Union for International Cancer Control (www.uicc.org), the leading, non-governmental organization in Geneva that is dedicated to the global prevention and control of cancer.  The band created the campaign, World War on Cancer, and has committed $1 per album (.10 cents per song sold) to support the fight against cancer.

Eldebrock is Jay Wegenast (Lead vocals/guitar), Barrett Moore (Lead guitar/vocals), Del Bannerman (Rhythm guitar), Richard Lalonde (Bass) and Shawn Bannerman (Drums).

Eldebrock also won the 2010 IMA Best in Class Award for website design in the ‘Music’ category and recently signed an endorsement deal with Steve Clayton Guitar Picks.

Visit Eldebrock’s award-winning website at www.Eldebrock.net and sign up for the Eldebrock Chronicle newsletter to get the latest news from the band.

Eldebrock, the album, is available at www.EldebrockShop.com or on iTunes.  The physical copy of the album also includes a 24-page booklet.

BOOYAH’S SMASH HIT SOCIAL APP ‘NIGHTCLUB CITY’ AND ICONIC ROCK BAND KISS JOIN FORCES TO BRING FANS A FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND LIVE CONCERT

(SAN FRANCISCO, CA) Sept. 22, 2010 – In a music event that will mark the first time a band of historic magnitude has streamed a free concert to millions through a social game, KISS (www.KISSonline.com) will broadcast their final North American date of their hugely-successful 2010 Hottest Show on Earth concert tour live in Booyah’s Nightclub City (http://apps.facebook.com/nightclubcity), a wildly-popular, music-centric social game and marketing platform for musicians on Facebook.  The live concert will bring new and traditional media together by simultaneously airing on sites KROQ.com in Los Angeles and CBS Radio rock station websites nationwide via Ustream on Saturday, September 25, where KISS is headlining the Epicenter Twenty Ten Festival in Fontana, California.

Fans of KISS will be able to watch the iconic band play for FREE by simply logging on to the Nightclub City application in Facebook or by going to the KISS Ustream site.

“We’re celebrating the end of a monster tour by giving everyone a chance to relive some of what they heard and saw at the show. Unfortunately, we will not be responsible for computers melting,” said KISS co-founder Paul Stanley.

“We have always believed in pushing the boundaries…in giving the fans bang for the buck…in going where no band has gone before,” added KISS co-founder Gene Simmons.  “This one’s gonna rock big time!”

The dynamic world of Nightclub City is powered by Booyah’s vision of fusing elements from the real and digital worlds to create new forms of interactive entertainment.  Since opening its club doors in April 2010, more than 8.6 million active players have joined the party per month, and experienced new music within the social game setting and created special experiences that go beyond the realm of the digital world.

Eldebrock Releases Highly-Anticipated New Album

Posted by Levine Communications Office on September 16, 2010

(VANCOUVER, BC) September 14, 2010 – Western Canadian rockers Eldebrock (www.Eldebrock.net) have released Eldebrock, their new, self-titled album that features the single Release Me. The album is mixed by industry heavyweight Michael Wagener and produced by Ryan Andersen.

Wagener, whose works have sold more than 92 million albums worldwide, has worked on some of rock’s most respected albums including Metallica’s Master of Puppets, Skid Row’s self-titled debut and Ozzy Osbourne’s No More Tears.  Credits for Andersen include Nickelback’s The Long Road and All the Right Reasons.

Eldebrock is clearing a path alongside other current top Canadian rock bands Nickelback, Three Days Grace and Theory of a Deadman.

“This album is very much looking forward in time, creating its own niche, very solid musicianship, great songs, great performance and great sound,” Wagener says.

“Eldebrock’s sound is a combination of layered guitars and vocal harmonies in the style of Alice in Chains, driving rhythm a’ la Godsmack and lead guitar influenced by Slash and Zakk Wylde,” says rhythm guitarist and founding member Del Bannerman.

For Del, it took some devastating events to trigger a complete life change.  His beloved mother was killed in a car crash, his only sibling went missing and was added to the Canada-wide Missing Persons List, and shortly after a great night jamming with actor Brad Renfro, the actor unexpectedly passed.  That’s when Del decided life was too short to spend doing something he didn’t love doing and he started pursuing his passion for music.

“Major events can shape your life and I knew I wasn’t leading the life I wanted,” Del explains.  “Yeah, I’ve been through some crazy times, who hasn’t, and actually my time here has been pretty damn good, but it was enough for me to re-evaluate what I was doing with my life.  It’s all about choices.  I decided I was going to start a rock band, put out a solid album with some great musicians and try to make a positive impact.”

Earlier this year, the band decided to give back in a big way and reach out globally by partnering with the UICC – International Union Against Cancer (www.uicc.org), the leading, non-governmental organization in Geneva that is dedicated to the global prevention and control of cancer.  The band created the campaign, World War on Cancer, and has committed $1 per album (.10 cents per song sold) to support the fight against cancer.

Eldebrock also just signed an endorsement deal with Steve Clayton Guitar Picks.

Eldebrock is Jay Wegenast (Lead vocals/guitar), Barrett Moore (Lead guitar/vocals), Del Bannerman (Rhythm guitar), Richard Lalonde (Bass) and Shawn Bannerman (Drums).

Visit Eldebrock’s award-winning website at www.eldebrock.net and sign up to the Eldebrock Chronicle newsletter get the latest news from the band.  Eldebrock, the album, is available at www.eldebrockshop.com or on iTunes.  The physical copy of the album also includes a 24-page booklet with images from their award-winning website.

A Match Made in Music Heaven

Posted by Levine Communications Office on September 2, 2010

LCO Client and legendary rock band, KISS, was pictured backstage with Lady Gaga in the September 16, 2010 issue of Rolling Stone. The KISS Hottest Show on Earth Tour continues to make its way through the United States, with only 12 more shows to go.

With equally outrageous styles, it looks like Gaga fits right in! Stanley said to Gaga, “I was made for groping you!”

Lady Gaga got cozy with Kiss backstage before a New Jersey Show. “I felt an immediate kinship,” says guitarist Paul Stanley, who lent the pop star a pair of his boots. “We were the two with the least clothes on, though I don’t have to wear nipple tape. I view her as the queen bee in a nest of musical wanna-be’s.”

What do you think of this new companionship between KISS and Gaga??

The album and first single is proving to be highly anticipated but don’t fret all of you super fans out there…drumroll please…the album is scheduled for release on September 14!

Not only are they talented, but they have good purpose and warm hearts as well.
