Tom Gabel will hit the road without his Against Me! bandmates on October 31st. Tom will be joined by Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Ben Nichols (Lucero), and Tim Barry (Avail) on the Revival Tour. The frontmen will trade off playing solo sets of their own songs as well as collaborating on each others material.
Gabel is launching the tour in support of his upcoming seven-song solo EP, entitled "Heart Burns," which will be released on CD, digitally and on vinyl by Sire Records on October 28th. Inspired by the country's current political and cultural landscape, Gabel began to write new songs in January. Due to the topical and timely subject matter, he wanted to release them around the upcoming Presidential election.
The centerpiece of the EP is "Anna Is A Stool Pigeon," which Gabel wrote after reading about environmental activist Eric McDavid (www.supporteric.org) who was convicted in 2007 of conspiring to use explosives to damage corporate and government property after being implicated by an undercover FBI informant who posed as an activist. McDavid's defense has argued that he was the victim of entrapment. He currently faces a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
"What struck me most about the story was a sense of familiarity," Gabel says. "I know the scene he was a part of, I used to be a part of it myself. I've thought the same thoughts, talked the same talk. I've hung out with the same people, gone to similar protests. If Eric could have become the target of an FBI sting operation, then so could I. This could have been me."
"Heart Burns" was recorded late August in Los Angeles on a short two week break in between Against Me! tours. Gabel co-produced the EP along with Billy Bush, while Butch Vig executive produced. The EP contains several guest appearances including Chuck Ragan and Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio).
Gabel's solo tour will begin once Against Me! complete their upcoming U.S. tour with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, which begins on October 1st. Against Me! have been touring non-stop in support of their current album, the Butch Vig-produced "New Wave," which was released by Sire Records in July 2007. Called "the most invigorating, zeitgeist-capturing rock album in years" by Spin Magazine, "New Wave" was named the magazine's "Album of the Year," and also appeared in the Top 10 on Rolling Stone, Blender, and MTV.com's year-end "Best Album" lists. "New Wave has spawned two singles, "White People for Peace" and "Thrash Unreal," which became the band's first single to chart in the U.S. when it climbed to No. 11 on the Modern Rock chart.
Gabel has announced plans to post every Wednesday on his MySpace page, a video for each song on "Heart Burns." These videos will not feature the album audio, but rather exclusive live audio of Gabel singing on camera. The first (for the song "100 Years of War") is already up. View it at http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=43422974.

www.ifeelsicktomystomach.blogspot.com Sep 29th, 2008 THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS’ NEW ALBUM "WHEN THE WORLD COMES DOWN" ARRIVES NOVEMBER 18th ON DGC/INTERSCOPE/DOGHOUSE
STREAM THE FIRST SINGLE "GIVES YOU HELL" ON IMEEM NOW!
The countdown is on. The All-American Rejects are scheduled to release their eagerly awaited third album WHEN THE WORLD COMES DOWN, on November 18th on DGC/Interscope/Doghouse. The new album follows-up the RIAA double-platinum Move Along, released July 2005. WHEN THE WORLD COMES DOWN is The All-American Rejects’ first project with veteran producer Eric Valentine, known for his work with multi-platinum artists Maroon 5, Smash Mouth, Good Charlotte, Queens Of the Stone Age, and more.
“Gives You Hell” has been chosen as the first single, and fans can now stream it for free on Imeem. Head over here
to check it out.
“It’s what we were put on this earth to create,” says Tyson Ritter of the new album. “This record hasn’t been smooth sailing,” confesses Nick of WHEN THE WORLD COMES DOWN. The new album was conceived from one end of the country to the other – from a secluded cabin in the Georgia wilderness (where “Mona Lisa” came to be), to a little place that Ty and Nick have on Florida’s Gulf Coast (“The Real World”), to the back of a bus cruising Interstate 10 (“Breaking's What the Heart Is For”), and yet another road trip (this one to Vancouver, for “Gives You Hell”). AAR’s first duet, “Another Heart Calls,” features the hypnotic vocals of The Pierces, two sisters from Alabama.
WHEN THE WORLD COMES DOWN builds on the success of their sophomore CD. Move Along (produced by Howard Benson, of Hoobastank, P.O.D and Daughtry renown) is approaching 6 million in digital sales and has reigned on the Billboard 200 chart for nearly 100 weeks, entering at #6 and spinning off three Top 10 singles and videos:
“Dirty Little Secret,” the long-running first single (released concurrently with the album in July 2005), went to #4 on the CHR/Top 40 chart, and #9 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent 39 weeks. It also went to #1 on the Hot Digital Songs chart, one of the first songs to sell 1 million downloads (a rare RIAA platinum title) across all digital partners of Universal Music, including Apple’s iTunes and other digital distributors, going on to sell close to 2 million songs.
“Move Along,” the title track second single, entered the Hot 100 in January 2006 (while “Dirty Little Secret” was still going strong). It reached #4 at Hot AC, #5 on the Hot Digital list, #9 at CHR/Top 40, and #15 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it also spent 39 weeks, garnering close to 2 million in digital sales. The video for “Move Along,” a #1 MTV “TRL” favorite, was directed by Marc Webb and went on to win Best Group Video at the 2006 MTV VMAs.
“It Ends Tonight,” the third single, was released September 2006, toward the end of the long-distance chart run of “Move Along.” It gave the album its third consecutive Top 10 hit, rising to #7 on the Hot AC and Billboard Pop 100, and #8 on the Hot 100 and CHR/Top 40 charts.
