In the meantime, I figured I'd update on the bands I've already profiled.
Charetta will be putting out their debut album Defying the Inevitable in April.
Freestate recorded a new song with producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool) called "The Burning" which will debut on their Myspace page on February 13th.
The Veer Union will be releasing their Universal debut in the spring.
VersaEmerge has released a self-titled EP on Fueled By Ramen, their first on the label and their second EP overall.
Fall of Envy has a new lead singer.
Halestorm is currently touring with major players like Shinedown and 10 Years. Their Atlantic debut is said to be getting released in the spring...even though I've been waiting to hear it for almost four years.
Adelita's Way is prepping their major label debut with Virgin/Capitol and hope to get it released by the late spring/early summer.
The Art of Dying will be making a major announcement on their Myspace page on Tuesday, February 10th.
Breaking the Silence has been releasing demos from their upcoming CD.
Vertigo will be releasing their second album sometime later this month called The Coming and the Going.
Society Red periodically releases new music even though they're still somehow unsigned while Amaru has played their final show.
Black Water Rising will be putting out their debut album on April 7th.
Forever Oeuvre has put out an EP that they have been selling at shows. Their song "First Stone" is the #1 song on Scranton's 97.9X (the active rock station over there). Kinda helps when Chad Szeliga of the Scranton-based Breaking Benjamin is playing in your band.
Plenty of great news for the bands that I've profiled here. Hopefully, there will be plenty more bands here worthy of a plug.
