    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Breathing Theory

    in Rock Music

    Breathing Theory is a hard rock band from Central Florida composed of heavy riffs, melodic leads, and gripping and thoughtful lyrics. Founded as a three piece in 2008 as "BurnTheSky," the band went through several members, growing into a five piece, and settled on the current name before recording their debut, "The Parasite EP" in 2011. With the release of their single "Fireflies" circulating on U.S. radio stations, XM satellite radio, and Music Choice, and touring across nearly the entire nation, BT slowly became more than just another local band. Prevailing through the test of time and tribulations, three of five members stepped down towards the end of 2013, but founding member and vocalist Cory Britt refused to be stopped, and recruited three new committed musicians to continue their quest to conquer stages across America. After writing and recording the Uprise sessions and embarking on four Eastern U.S. tours, the bands long awaited sophomore release and fresh new lineup lit a powerful fire under the quintet, and they have since dominated the Central FL scene with a fresh and passionate fury modern rock music so desperately needs, continually proving to audiences both at home and from afar that their sometimes commercial, but ALWAYS heavy hard rock sound will continue to appeal to the heart and soul of rock and metal fans alike. In the last year, they have met tons of new friends, both in the form of fellow bands and brand new fans, and left behind a wake of rock n roll fury accompanied by the smell of gasoline and burned, (sometimes exploded) rubber! They have shared the stage with national acts such as 12 Stones, Bobaflex, Flaw, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and 40 Below Summer, to name a few. For more information, visit www.breathingtheory.com

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Trapt

    in Rock Music

    Holing up in a Burbank, California studio, Trapt began to prolifically crank out songs for their 5th album "Reborn." The record's first single "Bring It" served as the catalyst, sparking a veritable flurry of creativity. Fusing together propulsive guitars and an unforgettable upbeat refrain, it's an anthem on par with the band's biggest hits. You could easily hear this piping through an arena with a rallying power. Expanding their patented hard rock sound, the group also seamlessly incorporated flourishes of electronic music to punctuate the drama and energy. Drawing from an ever expanding pallet of electronic and organic sounds and instruments, Brown embraced another side of himself and imbued it into Reborn. Trapt have worked for well over a decade to reach this point. Their 2002 self-titled debut surpassed sales of 2 million units, and its lead-off single "Headstrong" was ranked the #1 alternative song and #8 rock song by Billboard. They were a featured act on Rock Band and Tap Tap Revenge 2, and they also fueled countless WWE specials. In addition, they've shared the stage with heavy hitters such as Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, Hinder, Chevelle, and many more. Most recently, No Apologies entered the Billboard Top 200 at number 25 in 2010. Trapt is currently in the studio recording their 6th album DNA and have released a song from the album called "Passenger" that embodies the more progressive side of TRAPT's brand of hard rock as an intro to what fans can expect from the album. The band is also gearing for their summer tour dubbed the "Life In Your Own Hands" Tour. The new album DNA is shaping up to be a landmark album for TRAPT. It surpasses anything the band has done before and subsequent singles will show the true power that this band possesses. Get ready for DNA, it's going to change everything.

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Rock Band Red Sun Rising

    in Rock Music

    Rock music should be built to last. Since its genesis, the genre has been all about longevity not a “flavor of the month” or a “flash in the pan.” Whether you go back to the seventies or nineties pillars, the goal was to create something that can be lived with for a lifetime. It still can be that way. Akron, Ohio’s Red Sun Rising—Mike Protich [vocals/guitar], Ryan Williams [guitar], Tyler Valendza [guitar], Ricky Miller [bass/vocals], and Pat Gerasia [drums], proudly carry on that tradition with their full-length debut, Polyester Zeal [Razor & Tie]. “It’s not today’s rock, but it’s a new alternative,” declares singer and guitarist Mike Protich. Through tireless gigging, they built up an impressive local fan base, soon attracting the attention of multiple labels. Razor & Tie rushed to Akron in the Fall of 2014 and signed the band following a sold out hometown show.  The band headed to Los Angeles shortly after to cut Polyester Zeal with celebrated producer Bob Marlette [Black Sabbath, Shinedown, Seether]. They managed to siphon the pure, potent, powerful guitar chemistry, towering vocals, and muscular rhythms into the record’s 11 tracks with all of the “grit” intact. The first single “The Otherside” sees thick clean guitars clash with an unshakable refrain that’s as airy as it is anthemic. However, Polyester Zeal will be, and it firmly establishes Red Sun Rising’s place in rock. “The title sums it up,” concludes Mike. “Zeal is something you strive for, while Polyester is obtainable. The juxtaposition is, ‘What’s your obtainable dream?’ Ours is to tell stories through these songs. Hopefully, it makes you feel something. That’s what rock is supposed to do after all.” For more information, visit www.redsunrisingmusic.com

  • The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Art of Dying

    in Rock Music

    There is an old saying which claims that great art is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. The truth though is that exceptional creativity is nurtured by a complexly brewed combination of unswerving dedication and God-given talent. It’s a fact no better illustrated than by the history of Vancouver’s hard-rockers ART OF DYING and their talismanic frontman Jonny Hetherington. What ART OF DYING has been able to create is muscular, vivacious hard-rock bursting with lung-shattering choruses and a sincerity that is impossible to fake. Equally at home with a lead-fingered riff or a deft slow-burner, there is an ease of breadth in AOD’s repertoire that would send most of their peers salad-green with envy. Gradually, Hetherington’s ambitions grew beyond his local sidewalk and he began to seek out like-minded collaborators that he could expand his already impressive template with. Drummer Jeff Brown was swiftly recruited and he and Hetherington set about formulating the powerful nucleus of what ART OF DYING would soon become. It was recordings of those initial sessions that would eventually find their way into the hands on DISTURBED’s Dan Donegan - a guitarist with both a fine personal pedigree and a keen ear for new talent. Plucked from relative obscurity, the band introduced guitarist Tavis Stanley and bassist Cale Gontier to their ranks on the eve of the run with DISTURBED - the quartet playing onstage together for the very first time during the soundcheck of the opening show of the tour. Now, with a critically-acclaimed and widely-played major label debut under their belts, ART OF DYING are returning with new long-player RISE UP, their most imperious effort to date and, by the band’s own admission the truest representation of their sound they’ve ever distilled, which was produced by David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin, Of Mice & Men).

Throw the Fight followed with the 2013-released The Vault EP, which also landed on Billboard’s Heatseekers and Alternative New Artist charts. Since arriving on the scene, Throw the Fight, who are based in Minneapolis, have embarked on plenty of national touring. They've supported Bullet For My Valentine and Black Veil Brides on the 2013 Monster Energy Outbreak Tour, which traversed major markets for six weeks in the U.S. and Canada. It was truly the band’s introduction to rock fans on a major stage. The band has also honed its live chops by logging dates with the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Sevendust, Chevelle, Staind, Buckcherry, and more. They also secured slots on festivals such as The Vans Warped Tour & Taste of Chaos. Live is the avenue in which Throw the Fight truly come to life and they’ve put countless miles on their tour vehicle. They plan to live in the road while supporting Transmissions, winning over new fans in a grassroots, tried and true way: one city, one gig, and one venue at a time.

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock/Metal Band Tremonti

    in Rock Music

    Dedication breeds the best results. Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum guitarist and singer Mark Tremonti continues to wholeheartedly commit himself to his craft, barely drawing a breath for air in between his eponymous band, Alter Bridge, and Creed. Following tours supporting his critically acclaimed 2012 solo debut, All I Was, and Alter Bridge’s chart-topping Fortress, he immediately began writing in his Orlando Studio at the top of 2014. Joined by longtime guitarist Eric “Erock” Friedman, drummer Garrett Whitlock, and bassist Wolfgang Van Halen—a studio first—Tremonti penned more than twenty-five songs over the course of multiple sessions. Emerging from the most prolific period of his two-decade career, Tremonti delivers successive albums—Cauterize and Dust—on his Fret12 Records with production by Michael "Elvis" Baskette [Alter Bridge/Slash}. Cauterize lead the charge in summer 2015 and Dust is following in April 2016, the one-two punch of modern thrash and melody that has become the group’s signature fuels this engine, but Tremonti tweaks it with a polyrhythmic jackhammer at just the right moments. The group sold out countless shows on its tours and has a full slate of dates lined up ahead—including appearances at major festivals such as Download Festival, Graspop Metal Meeting, and Hellfest. “I hope people can enjoy the music the way I do,” he leaves off. “As we were recording, there was this excitement amongst everyone. We go into every record questioning if we’ll be able to outdo the previous album. That’s my goal—to make a better record every time. If one fan thinks Dust is better than Cauterize and All I Was, we’ve done our job.” For more information, visit www.fret12.com/mark-tremonti
