Hard Rock Band Janus experienced great success with their 2009 debut album, Red Right Return, but it was not until the release of the band’s new album, Nox Aeris, was it to be discovered how far they’ve come. That musical revelation is the self-produced, Nox Aeris, which debuted on March 27 on REALID Records (through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group).  The first single, Stains, is already getting spins at WIIL (Chicago), KPNT (St. Louis), WBUZ (Nashville), WJJO (Madison), WWBN (Flint), KHTQ (Spokane)as well as Sirius-XM’s Octane and Hard Drive XL. Their hit single, Stains, explores what can happen when you don’t follow your heart, the marks left on your spirit when you become someone you’re not. In 2012 touring news, the band’s first round of tour dates was with Chevelle and Middle Class Rut with additional dates being announced regularly. The record’s title, which is Latin for “night air,” comes from the 14 Century, a period where a third of the European population was killed off by the plague. Then, people believed going outdoors at night would cause them to succumb to the Black Death. While writing Nox Aeris, Janus found this idea to be an apt metaphor for their own journey, preconceived notions of their own being flipped around as they became a bigger, more established band since the release of Red Right Return. Nox Aeris reveals who Janus is and what they’ve gone through. Red Right Return came out in September 2009 on REALID Records and spawned the Top 10 Active Rock hit, Eyesore. They spent months on the road touring with Chevelle, Sick Puppies, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Halestorm, Five Finger Death Punch and Alice In Chains. Janus also sold-out numerous headlining shows of their own, appeared on MTV’s “Headbangers Ball” and performed in the biggest rock festivals in the U.S. For more information, visit www.janusmusic.com
