First Live Concert DVD and CD from The Dude Films, due March 26


NEW YORK – Fans of power rockers ALTER BRIDGE rushed to “beat the street” online this week and make LIVE AT WEMBLEY, the band’s second live CD/DVD – and the first live concert DVD from The Dude Films – hit #2 in the Top 100 on the Blu Ray Music Videos and Concerts chart at, just beneath Adele.

For the seventh day in a row, LIVE AT WEMBLEY, with a street date of March 26, 2012, has been in the Top 10 of Amazon Bestsellers in the Blu Ray Music Videos and Concerts chart, ahead of video offerings from other music giants in the Top 10 such as Iron Maiden, Whitney Houston and Tony Bennett. The title has consistently picked up sales and momentum since it was initially posted on Amazon over a week ago, showing the incredibly true loyalty and love of Alter Bridge fans.

The band’s previous live CD/DVD, LIVE FROM AMSTERDAM (2009), broke records at Amazon, rising 15,000 spots in one day to capture the #1 position.
The package was very well received and garnered 4- and 5-star reviews across the board.
LIVE AT WEMBLEY, distributed in North America through EMI Label Services, includes every key Alter Bridge track from their three studio albums, including “Isolation,” “Ghosts Of Days Gone By,” “Wonderful Life,” “Watch Over You,” “Broken Wings,” “Rise Today,” “Open Your Eyes” and many more, and was captured in late November during the Fall 2011 European tour at the historic Wembley Arena.

“When the tour was booked, we saw that there were a few arenas, Wembley being one of them,” says lead guitar player Mark Tremonti. “We were excited and nervous, wondering if the tickets would sell. They did, and we were blown away. The first four or five songs of any set are usually pretty nerve-wracking. Those are the tunes where we're finding our footing and trying to get comfortable. But Wembley was different. Even with all of the cameras and the fact that we were filming and we couldn't make any mistakes, it was fun right from the start.”

Directed by long time Alter Bridge Director Daniel E. Catullo III (Rush, Nickelback, Smashing Pumpkins, Godsmack) and produced by Catullo and Lionel Pasamonte, the 16-camera, state-of-the-art high definition shoot was filmed in front of a fanatical audience of over 10,000 English fans as the band gave the performance of a lifetime, captured in pristine audio visual perfection, in 5.1 DTS Surround Sound, at Wembley Arena in London. The Deluxe Edition of the DVD is set to include a second bonus disc of content shot specifically for this release, plus a 60-minute documentary called “The Road To Wembley” and photo gallery, and 16-page souvenir booklet.

In addition to the main HD shoot, the show was shot in 3D using 3Ality Technica technology and cameras. The 3D version will be released in late 2012 as a separate 3D film/3D Blu Ray package by 3Dimensions, Inc. The 3D production was produced by Catullo and Pasamonte, along with Ted Kenney, Producer/ Director of such iconic 3D Concert Films as U23D, Kenney Chesney: Summer in 3D, Black Eyed Peas in 3D and Britney Spears in 3D.

About Alter Bridge

Formed in 2004, ALTER BRIDGE is comprised of CREED members Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips along with powerhouse singer and former MAYFIELD FOUR front-man Myles Kennedy. ALTER BRIDGE has sold over 1,000,000 albums in North America alone, and has had 7 Top Ten hits. Its debut album, One Day Remains, was certified RIAA Gold. The band’s incendiary follow up, Blackbird, featured the hit single “Rise Today” and their most recent album ABIII, has spawned 2 Top 10 hits, “Isolation” and “Ghosts Of Days Gone By.” Isolation, the first single on ABIII, reached #1 on Billboard’s Active Rock chart.



Iconic singer MEAT LOAF will return to the television airwaves March 14 with a live performance of his new song “The Giving Tree” on NBC’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” The performance coincides with the March 13 release of the new HELL IN A HANDBASKET CD (Sony/Legacy). MEAT LOAF will also sit down that week for an interview on PBS’ “Tavis Smiley Show” (airdate TBA).

Check out “The Giving Tree” (click here to listen), a song about his life as a performer, giving his all in a Faustian bargain. “It’s not all about the money, like the public thinks,” MEAT LOAF says. “I’ve never done a single thing for money.”

MEAT LOAF – whose 1977 breakout album Bat Out Of Hell defined the arena rock genre and remains as one of the world’s five top-selling albums of all-time, with more than 43 million copies sold to date–is excited about HELL IN A HANDBASKET. It’s his most autobiographical album to date, a thematic record that easily crosses any number of genres, featuring such unlikely contributors as rappers Chuck D and Lil Jon, country star Trace Adkins, and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath. It’s an album about feeling alone and disconnected from the world around you, at the same time as it tries to tap into what unifies us as fellow humans on this topsy-turvy planet in 2012.

Hell In A Handbasket is the most personal record I’ve ever made,” said MEAT LOAF.  "It’s really the first record I’ve ever put out about how I feel about life and how I feel about what’s going on at the moment.” The album, produced by Paul Crook, is an expression of life’s metaphors, driven by excellent musicianship, and of course, the passionate vocals of Meat Loaf. “Making this album was a great experience,” said MEAT LOAF, “and I hope my fans enjoy hearing it as much as I did making it.”

Musically, HELL IN A HANDBASKET ranges from the southern country blues feel of “Live or Die” (co-written by Grammy-winning band The Civil Wars’ John Paul White), the DEVO-esque New Wave feel and Beatle-esque interlude in “Party of One,” the gospel/R&B of “Our Love and Our Souls” (duet with Patti Russo), to “Stand in the Storm,” which segues from country to rock to rap all in one song, featuring Lil Jon and Mark McGrath, along with Trace Adkins. Other tracks include “All of Me,” a cover of Tom Cochrane’s 1991 “Mad, Mad World,” (which is part of a trilogy including the dreamy “Blue Sky” before it, and Chuck D’s virulent rap, with “The Good God is a Woman and She Don’t Like Ugly” as a coda), the Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreamin’” (duet with Patti Russo), “Another Day,” “40 Days,” and “Fall From Grace.”


(Phoenix, AZ - March. 2012) Phoenix, AZ glam kings the Crash Street Kids have their new video, "Sad Julia" available for viewing. The video features popular Phoenix based model Mysti Moon in the role of Julia, a reclusive beauty who happens to be the target of CSK singer, Ryan McKay's infatuation.

The video directed by Nick Orciuolo, captures CSK in a gritty alleyway, while Julia sits comfortably in her quiet suburban home. After some effort and a bit of convincing, she's lured from the safety of her cozy lair into an adventure with the glam rockers.

"Sad Julia" can be viewed here:

"Sad Julia" is the new single from the Crash Street Kids newest album, Sweet Creatures. The band's fifth album overall (including four studio and one double live album) and debut for Vanity Music Group, the album will also feature two more videos, "Bang! Bang! (You're Beautiful)" and "Mary, Queen Of The Rock."

Sweet Creatures is in stores now.
