Check it out here. Feb 20th, 2007 Bless The Fall To Release Debut Full-Length His Last Walk On April 10; Band Confirmed To Play Smartpunk Stage On Vans Warped Tour All Summer; And Hurley Stage At Cornerstone Festival June 30th
Aggressive and as powerful as the blistering Arizona sun, Scottsdale, AZ quintet blessthefall holds nothing back on their ear-shattering debut release, His Last Walk.
Having gained regional recognition by winning several local battle-of-the-bands contests, the band draws influence from a bevy of aggro bands like Underoath, Alexisonfire and As I Lay Dying, but is equally as influenced by pop, hip-hop, rap, and even R&B, giving birth to a new sound in the world of hard-hitting and unrelenting rock.
Absolutepunk.net raves "I was nothing less than blown away....a remarkable amalgamation....I suggest picking it up and checking them out on tour."
Over the past few months blessthefall toured much of the U.S. and Canada with The Radio Rebellion Tour featuring Norma Jean where they garnered recognition at an overwhelming rate.
blessthefall's His Last Walk will be released April 10 on Science Records, a new imprint from Record Collection Music (The Walkmen, Greeley Estates, Murs).
blessthefall has been confirmed to play the Smartpunk Stage on the entire run of this summer's Vans Warped Tour and will be performing on the Hurley Stage at Cornerstone on June 30th in Bushnell, IL.

Kevin Lyman, the man behind the Van’s Warped Tour, has once again created a successful model of more-bang-for-your-buck. Lyman says, “We have succeeded in giving a World audience an action packed lineup for an inexpensive price. The success of the tour on a worldwide level has been unprecedented. The 2007 USA and Canada Tour is our strongest lineup to date and we are excited to bring this great show to the fans.” The multi-artist package in the U.S.A. and Canada features THE USED, 30 SECONDS TO MARS, SENSES FAIL, SAOSIN, CHIODOS, AIDEN, EVALINE and other special musical surprises to be announced.
ROCKSTAR Energy Drink continues to be the title sponsor of the 2007 tour and will be sampling their products, as well as coming up with some great surprises for attendees. Other sponsors include Best Buy, Guitar Center, Hurley, Chaos Mobile, PETA, Hard Rock Café, Hot Topic, PunkStop, 420 Players, Smartpunk, SFA and Ernie Ball (who will provide musical instruments for fans to test out and will pick the opening act through their massively successful Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands in conjunction with Chaos Mobile.) FUSE Television and Alternative Press (who will produce the Official Tour Program) have signed on as official Rockstar Taste of Chaos media partners. The Canadian Leg sponsors include MTV Canada, SBC Media, West 49, D-Tox & Amnesia. The concourses at each show will be filled with interactive activities that attendees can enjoy, play and tinker with.
THE USED who have been one of the most successful bands in alternative music over the past five years are launching their highly anticipated third album to coincide with the 2007 Tour. Bert McCracken lead vocalist states, “The Rockstar Taste of Chaos is so much fucking fun for the bands and the fans alike. Fans can see a big production and all enjoy all sorts of interactive concourse activities for the price of going to the movies and eating some popcorn. We really support giving our fans a shitload of entertainment for a fair price and this tour accomplishes that… and we are gonna rock some of our new songs on the tour which we are really excited about.”
Tickets for the Rockstar Taste of Chaos dates are now on sale at www. rockstartasteofchaos.com . Information, updates and free stuff are also be available at www.chaosmobile.com. By registering at www.chaosmobile.com attendees have the ability to win free musical gear, new music, clothing, video game systems as well as a CUT THE LINE code to get in the venue first and a FRONT OF THE LINE code for getting to the front of the line for autograph signings. Chaos Mobile also features custom voicetones, video clips, candid photos, free phone wallpapers, exclusive content and lots of exciting features for all of the attendees.
Having already spawned multiple soundtrack CD’s and a Live DVD (which was recently featured as a 30-minute show on FUSE Television) Rockstar Taste Of Chaos, like its summer sibling the Van’s Warped Tour, is only getting bigger and better, offering fans the opportunity to see their favorite bands as well as take part in a number of activities including playing the newest video games, checking out acoustic performances, attending autograph signing sessions and a slew of interactive fan activities that will add to the experience.
Here’s what critics had to say about last year’s Rockstar Taste Of Chaos Tour:
"Rockstar Taste of Chaos patrons can expect six full hours of noise, games and enlightenment-all costing less than a U2 tour shirt."- Alternative Press
"A smorgasbord of music that is sure to delight your musical palette. Who knew that chaos could taste so good?"- Metal Edge
"Taste of Chaos has become the must-see package tour during cold-weather months..."- Cleveland Plain Dealer
The definitive hard music tour of the spring time is here in all of its hard-rockin' glory..."- Skinnie Magazine
"...Some captivating Chaos..."- Orange County Register
"Six hours of cutting-edge metal that is on the extreme end of the energy scale."- Toledo Blade

Info about the bands:
The Used are one of the most successful bands to emerge over the past 5 years and in the process they have sold in excess of 3 million albums Worldwide. Their debut album "THE USED" was a genre defining work that helped usher in a new style of music that touches legions of fans. Their second album "IN LOVE AND DEATH" continued to expand their fanbase worldwide. The band's highly anticipated third album is scheduled for an early 2007 release. The Used headlined the inaugural Taste of Chaos Tour in 2005 and they return in 2007 to headline the tour that has become a phenomenon across the globe.
30 SECONDS TO MARS
30 Seconds To Mars released the near platinum record A Beautiful Lie to critical acclaim. Alternative Press said of the band, "... they just might be rock's best-kept secret." "The Kill" became a top three hit at Modern Rock Radio while their latest single "From Yesterday" is climbing up the charts. 30STM took home a multiple of awards this year for their video for "The Kill." They won the MTV2 Award at the 2006 VMAs after being nominated for two -- "Best Rock Video" and the "MTV2 Award." The band also received honors at this year's FUSE Fangoria Chainsaw Awards where they won "Best Video Inspired By Film" while Jared Leto took home the award for "Prince Of Darkness." They also enjoyed a win at the mtvU Woodie Awards for Best Video (Live Action) as well. Continuing to tour through the end of 2006 headlining the MTV2 $2 Bill "Welcome To The Universe" tour, the band also played Bamboozle East and West, Lollapalooza, and this summer's Warped Tour.
If SENSES FAIL named their new Vagrant Records release Still Searching because they were looking for the upper reaches of the Billboard charts, it was a prophetic move. Still Searching, the band’s second full-length release, debuted this past October at No. 15 on The Billboard 200. Their 2004 full-length Let It Enfold You, has gone on to sell more than 325,000 copies. The Bergen County, NJ five-piece recorded the new album with producer Brian Mcternan. Still Searching features a new musical cohesiveness resulting from hundreds of shows and tens of thousands of miles on the road (including their most recent stint on the International Taste of Chaos tour).
Post-hardcore heroes and Capitol Records’ new pride and joy Saosin are tearing up the scene. Currently on the road with Rockstar Taste of Chaos International, Saosin have been blowing minds on 3 continents including Australia, Japan, and Europe. Their immense live show has been honed through years on the road with such bands as AFI, Avenged Sevenfold, and My Chemical Romance. Along the way, they’ve amassed millions of fans worldwide who eagerly follow every move of this exciting young act. With the recent success of Saosin’s self-titled debut full-length (selling almost 40,000 copies in its first week) Saosin is set to explode behind this creative and compelling work.
The band Chiodos formed in high school, just outside of Flint, MI. Then known as The Chiodos Bros, they played the local scene and began writing original music. In June 2002, they recorded a demo called, The Best Way To Ruin Your Life, which gave the group a healthy local following. Chiodos (now with a shortened moniker) has covered plenty of ground since then. Citing such bands as Saves The Day, Queen, and At The Drive In as influences, Chiodos' latest full-length All’s Well That Ends Well (Equal Vision Records) blasts menacingly at times, and sighs thoughtfully at others. Despite the complex range and genre-shifting within songs on the record, when asked how the album will transcend live, front man Craig Owens sums it up by saying, “We take pride in sounding better live [than on the album].” Chiodos have toured with such bands as Atreyu and Coheed and Cambria and became one of the breakout acts on last summer's Vans Warped Tour.
Aiden, a brash, young band that likes to call its pounding sound “horror rock” - aptly melding punk, post hardcore and goth, was a recent winner of Kerrang! Magazine’s Best International Newcomer Award over the likes of Panic! At The Disco and Wolfmother. The Seattle foursome has sold over 100,000 copies of their Victory Records’ debut Nightmare Anatomy and their latest EP/DVD Rain In Hell was just released on Halloween.
Evaline from Turlock, California is a pure source of energy manifesting itself into artistry. From their teetering, poignant front man to the force behind the kick. Their music cannot be boxed into a specific genre and because of this their songs come across as fresh and new. Their six song EP, postpartum modesty. a portrait of skin. was released by Warner Brothers Records in June 2006 and was hailed by Exclaim! as, “…driving and melodic…these are six tracks that will leave you hanging for more.” AllMusic.com raved, this “sweeping EP bodes very well for the band’s future.” Evaline was featured as one of Kevin Lyman's personal picks on the 2006 VANS WARPED TOUR and in October 2006 they toured with Placebo. The band is very excited to share the experience of the Rockstar TASTE OF CHAOS in 2007. Following the tour the band will record their first full length LP and it will see a release in the summer of 2007. Feb 13th, 2007 Helmet On Fuel TV's The Daily Habit Tonight!
