All Time Low For Myspace
PR reports: MySpace Music is excited to announce an unprecedented set of upcoming Secret Shows featuring the pop-punk quartet All Time Low. The band will be performing shows in Washington DC, Chicago, IL, and Orange County, CA, all on Tuesday, July 7.

The ambitious, cross-country excursion will begin at Midnight and is set to culminate in an evening show scheduled at Anaheim's Chain Reaction. The Secret Show performances will be held exclusively for MySpace users who were recently notified via MySpace Music's Secret Show profile (http://www.myspace.com/secretshows).

Three Secret Shows in one day is a venture MySpace Music has never attempted in its over three-year history, and it's only fitting they have chosen All Time Low as the first band to carry out such a feat due to group's overwhelming popularity within the online music community site.

Chuck Mosley Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food
PR reports: Rap and Rock music, though viewed through the public lens as worlds apart, are not as distant from one another as they seem. The energy, aggression, and valiant spirit make them the perfect vehicles for unabashed expression, and rap-rock veteran Chuck Mosley realizes this. He is the embodiment of the unification of these two musical forces, as well as the various musical influences he has accumulated as both an artist and an avid music fan. On August 11, he releases his first solo album Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food via Cleveland-based label Reversed Image Unlimited.

Mosley's return with Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food showcases the Godfather of rap-metal seamlessly blending rock, hip-hop, metal, punk and funk. Recounting his previous work, Mosley, as he describes it, would "rant to the beat." On his latest effort, Mosley's musical stew combines this approach with an exploration of his vocal range. It's apparent that he chose to let his amalgam of cultural saturations melt into this new album, which he describes as "just very normal for me."

Will Rap… was produced by multi-platinum award-winning producer/engineer Michael Seifert (Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Fountains of Wayne, and most recently Reversed Image electro-rockers THIS IS A SHAKEDOWN!). Featuring guest appearances from a cast of characters Chuck has affectionately deemed Vanduls Ugenst Allliderasy, John 5 (Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson), Roddy Bottum (Faith No More, Imperial Drag), and Michael Cartellone (Lynyrd Skynyrd) all contribute to the record. Korn frontman Jonathan Davis (courtesy of Warner Bros. Records), who attributes Mosley as a massive influence, also makes an appearance on the lead single "The Enabler".

Pigface Mainman Facing The Public
PR reports: Detroit-based label Full Effect Records recently signed Martin Atkins' legendary Industrial supergroup PIGFACE and released the album 6 on June 16th. Pigface members have included a virtual who's-who of Industrial dance music. Past contributors include Trent Reznor (NIN), Ogre (Skinny Puppy), Taime Downe (Faster Pussycat), and an ever-rotating cast of notable artists.

The band's unique approach to collaboration creates of sense of mystery. It's hard to predict the direction of the band's new music, let alone who will be performing at their live shows. Our live shows get kind of crazy," Atkins says. "Often with 12 or more performers on the stage at one time." The new Pigface album, entitled 6, was released June 16th and already cracked the CMJ Top 200 Adds and the Top 5 RPM Adds!

Along with the release of his new album, Martin Atkins of Pigface will be travelling around the U.S. djing, displaying his artwork and hosting a series of R3 sessions. Revolution 3 is Martin's answer to the bueracracy [sic] and slow adaptation of traditional academia--It's fast-paced, the curriculum is constantly changing and learning is done almost entirely through hands-on experience.
