About Record Store Day:The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown and was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA and hundreds of similar stores internationally.
This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet and greets with artists, parades, dj's spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.

The curtain has closed on Your Demise as the Southern Englishmen are sad to announce that their time as a band will come to an end in March 2014, following a series of farewell performances (details of which will be announced in the near future).
The English quintet have issued a video message to their fans and supporters regarding the split, which can be viewed here:
Your Demise have also announced that in light of this larger decision and other circumstances beyond their control, they will no longer be able to perform their scheduled tour dates in Mexico, North America and Canada, which were set to begin in mid May:
“We are truly very sorry to be letting our fans over the Atlantic down,” say the band of the tour cancellation. “It is with heavy hearts that we have found ourselves having to make the decision to pull out of the shows in Mexico, USA and Canada. Trust us, we are not a band that has ever made a habit of canceling shows, let alone tours, so we have not made this decision lightly. We feel terrible for the disappointment this news will cause our fans in those countries, and we would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all of our transatlantic supporters, the show promoters, our stateside
team and, of course, Rotting Out and Expire who both were set to join us on the dates. On a more positive note, Rotting Out will still be doing the West Coast portion of the dates around Rainfest, taking over from us as headliner. Stay tuned for another announcement with the specifics of this very soon."
“My address is in my suitcase...” : Your Demise, 2006 - 2014
Your Demise originally formed in St Albans in 2006 as a Suicidal Tendencies covers band, and underwent a whopping 13 personnel changes before finally settling on a solid lineup in 2009. This definitive incarnation of the band - vocalist Ed McRae, guitarists Stuart Paice and Daniel ‘Ozzy Porkchop’ Osborne, bassist Jimmy Sampson and drummer James Tailby - proceeded to release two acclaimed full lengths (2010’s ‘The Kids We Used To Be...’ and 2012’s ‘The Golden Age’) and two E.Ps (2012’s ‘Three For Free’ and 2013’s ‘Cold Chillin’), alongside setting up their home away from home on the road, touring their high energy, oft unpredictable live show all around the globe on many occasions. From backroom bars in Bangkok, Thailand to the LockUp Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival, and from Californian club shows to Australia’s prestigious Soundwave Tour, Your Demise brought their hard hitting tunes and good time spirit with them wherever they went. But, all good things come to an end, and as the band have themselves revealed in today’s video statement, they want to end their beloved band of brothers with a bang, and on their own terms.
Specifics of the band’s farewell performances, which will take place between October 2013 and March 2014, are yet to be revealed, but for the immediate future they will still perform all currently scheduled European festival and club dates. Plans are also afoot for a 2014 DVD release documenting the band’s career and their forthcoming farewell touring.
Illinois’ The Color Morale have posted their new music video for their song “Learned Behavior” which comes off of their new LP, "Know Hope". The LP was released in late March via Rise Records and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
Fans can view the “Learned Behavior” video below:
The Color Morale will be touring as part of the Rise Records Tour alongside label mates Like Moths to Flames, Crown The Empire, Palisades and My Ticket Home, starting April 19. The trek runs through May 4.

Atlanta-based pop punks Look Alive will be recording their debut 'Mistakes & Milestones' EP from 13th to 28th April at Spotlight Sound Studio in Atlanta. The producer of the EP will be Jason Andrews, it is due for release on 2nd July, 2013 via Autumn + Colour Records.
About Look Alive:
The members of Look Alive have all played in different bands over the last 10+ years. Hell, some of them are even in multiple bands now — that’s kind of how it goes for musicians. They all share that one common thing: the itch to play music. So here they are, another band, another line-up and another chance to fulfill that itch.
In a creative world where everyone seems to have a new band or project, artists must bring something fresh to cut through the clutter. Look Alive does just that by delivering a melodic approach with an aggressive tempo, propped up with timely lyrics and growling vocals that are sure to make any music lover take notice. Coming together in August of 2012, the band was fairly new when an old hat on the Atlanta music scene, Travis Groo, heard the recent incarnation. He moved quickly and inked the guys to a deal with newly minted Autumn + Colour Records.
The group is doing their part to help raise pop-punk from the grave with their energetic performances and straight-to-the-point lyrics. They are no strangers to hard work and sacrifice. From sleeping on floors, touring the states and eating Ramen noodles night after night — this life has given them a genuine approach to their music and song writing. Their previous work has set the stage for something great, and they welcome the future with a beer in hand. Sharing this experience with friends, fans and family will always be the motivating factor for keeping the band alive.

Parker is the latest addition to the Belgian post-hardcore family. Although this name might sound new, all of the band members have been around for quite some time, as the band mainly consists of ex-members from Campus, When Hope Escapes and Her Concept.
Parker is five individuals joining forces as one new band, engaging a new feeling, new sound and creating an all new experience in modern music scenery.
Currently working very hard on their debut EP, "This is PRKR", the band will release their first four songs in May 2013. Writing these songs is different from anything the band members have ever done before. If you ask them what this new band and the songs are about, they will all tell you they are "writing the best possible songs while having the most fun working on them".
Parker will be on stage as from May 2013 onwards. Should you wish to book the band, please contact them by email. You will like Parker if you like bands such as Architects, Bring Me The Horizon, Oh, Sleeper and more.
You can find a Youtube teaser here.
