Blue Cheer Tour
PR reports: BLUE CHEER (the legendary rock band responsible for heavy music today), kicked off their US tour on Saturday November 11th @ the Khyber in Philadelphia. BLUE CHEER are legendary cult heroes of all things rock n' roll. Formed in the late 1960's in San Francisco, the band helped blaze the trail of heavy metal music in America. A "power trio" named after a brand of LSD created by Owsley Stanley (Grateful Dead), the band broke through to the masses in 1968 when their cover of the song "Summertime Blues" climbed to #14 on the Billboard top 100 (the song appeared on the band's debut release "Vincebus Eruptum" and would later be covered by the Who in 1970).

Preston Raises 25K for Stevie Nicks Soldier's Angel Foundation
PR reports: It was a star-studded event November 9 at the newly-opened MORRISON HOTEL GALLERY on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.

Relient K Fifth
PR reports: On March 6, 2007, Gotee Records/Capitol will release Five Score And Seven Years Ago, Relient K's fifth album in seven years and the follow up to 2004's mmhmm, the band's third consecutive Gold album. 

Although Five Score And Seven Years Ago's 14 songs are written in the first person, Thiessen has ventured beyond the confessional this time around. "Plead the Fifth" and "Deathbed," the two songs that bookend the album, step into the shoes of a 19th century man with an intriguing conspiracy theory about Abraham Lincoln and an aging cancer patient respectively. The album, most of which was produced by Howard Benson in Los Angeles with three tracks completed thereafter with the band's longtime producer Mark Townsend in Nashville, is a departure of sorts for the pop-punk band. For starters, there are some love songs - happy ones. "I always write about what I'm going through and I can't avoid the fact that I'm just really happy and there are some good things going on," says lead singer/guitarist/pianist Matt Thiessen. This happy state of mind lights up the exuberant first single "Must Have Done Something Right." "This song represents something that I've wanted to create for a long time," he explains. "It's not a political commentary or a tear jerking emotion-piece, it's just a feel good, fun song. Written at 3 a.m. with a smirk on my face, the song turned out to be something that you can tap your foot and smile to." - Click Here for the Full Story
