For All Those Sleeping
"Storming out of St Cloud, MN, armed with a blend of pop, hardcore and a killer live show, For All Those Sleeping is ready to give the scene a serious wake up call. Mike Champa (vocals), Jerad Pierskalla (guitar/vocals), David Volgman-Stevens (guitar) and Ethan Trekell (drums) met in high school, and formed For All Those Sleeping in 2007 after gaining London Snetsinger on bass. The band has already wowed audiences on tour throughout the Midwest, and is now ready to take their sound global, having just signed a deal with Fearless Records.
Casino Madrid is the latest band to join the Artery Recordings roster, the joint venture between The Artery Foundation and Razor & Tie. The San Diego band is the ninth addition to the Artery Recordings family. Casino Madrid will enter the studio to record their first full length record this June with producer Will Puntey (Lamb Of God, Suicide Silence, For Today). "His range is crazy," said vocalist Joe Demaio of working with Puntey. "We couldn't be more stoked to work with him." "We couldn't more excited to join the Artery Recordings family," Demaio said. "We felt as a band that this label was the best fit for us, not only because of its reputable name in the industry, but because of the family oriented attitude everyone at Artery presents to their bands." Comprised of Joe Demaio (vocals), Marcelo Sedano (guitar/vocals), Armani Sanchez (guitar), Travis Knutz (bass), Rob Cesena (keys/synth/programming) and Johhny Thunder (drums), Casino Madrid formed in 2007.

Some of their recent artists flooding the Billboard charts have included Top 40 releases with The Devil Wears Prada and Attack Attack!, Top 100 releases with Alesana and Breath Carolina and additional artists such as Asking Alexandria, Jonny Craig and Dance Gavin Dance. New York-based Razor & Tie Entertainment is one of the fastest growing independent entertainment companies in the United State.

San Diego favorites, Adestria, have been working their way through the ranks of the music scene and showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. Recently labeled #5 Unsigned Band by AP magazine, this band blends big breakdowns with melodic piano and catchy guitar riffs. Known for their live performance and unqiue stage show, Adestria will be making their way around the US this summer. Fans of Asking Alexandria and August Burns Red will find Adestria to be the perfect mix of fast heavy music, gang chants, and memorable choruses. Expect a full length album to come out in 2011.
We combine talent and passion to create heartfelt music that keeps us rising to the top of the local Tampa rock scene. They consist of chaotic guitar riffs, subtly powerful bass lines, vibrant drum beats all sewn together with honestly tangible lyrics sung with urgency.
The band formed in mid-summer of 2009 with raw intentions of making tunes that floated with meaning and intellectual heaviness to the listeners ears. Now seeing that the sky is the limit and their dreams are obtainable, the songwriting process and overall mindset of the band transformed from almost accidental to a goal-oriented hunger to reach the stars.
The band appreciates every little thing that is done for them to help them avoid having desk jobs for the next 40 years! They love music like a mistress and are here to bring a new side of music that people have been itching to hear
