  • Fearless Records has signed Blessthefall. The band will be recording their sophomore album with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Incubus, Escape The Fate, Story Of The Year). "Fearless has been a great label to all of its artists," says guitarist Mike Frisby. "They support and take care of all of their bands individually and it'll be great to have such a strong team behind us."
  • Bloodhorse have posted the new song "Paranoiac" from their Translation Loss Records sophomore release "Horizoner," due May 26th on their MySpace page. "Horizoner" is the follow-up to the band's self-titled "TL" debut EP and first proper full-length record on Translation Loss. "Horizoner" was recorded at Mystic Valley Recording Studio with Alex Garcia Rivera of Bloodhorse and mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East (Torche, Pelican, Clouds, Jesu).
  • The Beach Boys are set to release "Summer Love Songs" on May 19th. This collection features "Fallin' In Love," a song written and recorded by Dennis Wilson during the Beach Boys' Sunflower album sessions in 1970. The track has never before been released in the US and has long been out-of-print in the UK (where it was released as "Lady"). This track has also been mixed in stereo for the first time. You can check out "Fallin In Love" here: QuickTime (lo, hi) Windows Media Player (lo, hi).
