Buckcherry’s fifth studio album, All Night Long, their first since the band’s move back to top independent rock label Eleven Seven Music, recently debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and was the #1 Rock debut. All Night Long has won rave reviews from fans and critics alike including iTunes pick for one of the Top Rock Albums of the Year. The New York Post called the album “a fun rock n’ roll tribute to hedonism,” while Classic Rock said, “It’s about a band playing to its instincts and leaving you with the promise that the winning streak ain’t no fluke.” Kerrang! added, “The party is back on,” and Spin dubbed Buckcherry, “Fist-pumping anthem-makers.” The band continued their Top 10 success worldwide as they debuted at #7 on the overall chart in Canada (their highest chart position to date there) and scored their first Top 10 chart positions in the UK at #6 on the Independent Albums and #5 on the Rock and Metal charts, respectively. In their more than decade-long career, multi-platinum artists Buckcherry have established themselves as a definitive hard rock band with a massive presence at both radio and on the road. Hits such as “Lit Up” and “Sorry” have propelled the band’s sales to more than 3 million albums worldwide and have garnered Buckcherry two Grammy Nominations. 2008’s Black Butterfly earned the band their first-ever Top 10 Billboard album debut, with the album coming in at #8. Black Butterfly was deemed the “Album of the Year” by Entertainment Weekly and “Best Rock Album” by iTunes.
Hellyeah is a supergroup comprised of Grammy nominated and chart topping musicians. Drummer Vinnie Paul from Pantera (over 20 million selling, one of the only metal bands to debut at #1 on the Billboard album chart), vocalist Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett hail from Mudvayne (Grammy nominated, 3.3 million selling, #1 most played single at Active Rock Radio in 2009), guitarist Tom Maxwell and bassist Bob Zilla hail from highly credible rock acts Nothingface and Damageplan, respectively. Hellyeah’s debut album has sold nearly 400,000 copies in the U.S. and produced two Top 10 Active Rock singles. Their newest album Stampede debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and has sold over 90,000 copies to date fueled by the Top 5 single “Hell of a Time” and the fast climbing “Better Man.”
About ALL THAT REMAINS
One of hard rock’s preeminent breakthrough success stories of recent years, the Massachusetts-based quintet All That Remains has built its career on overcoming the odds. From cracking the Billboard Top 10 with 2010’s For We Are Many, to joining the elite Active Rock radio fraternity, to being one of just a handful of acts to take part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Ozzfest and Vans Warped Tour trifecta, All That Remains has shattered previously-held expectations about just how far a band with roots in independent heavy metal can go.
About The Damned Things
The Damned Things, with members Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano of Anthrax; Keith Buckley from Every Time I Die; and Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with. The Damned Things’ debut album Ironiclast (released December 14, 2010) which combines their love of classic rock anthems and powerful melodies with a heavy metal intensity, turns out to be much more than the sum of separate parts.
