Rev Theory Added To Crue Fest 2 Second Stage
July 18, 2009
Crüe Fest 2 announced a partnership with Monster Energy to add an additional stage at most dates on this year’s festival. The new Monster Energy Stage doubles the entertainment value at Crüe Fest 2 with five additional bands - Rev Theory, Cavo, Shram and 16 Second Stare plus one band chosen locally in select markets, showcasing the next generation of rock. With no change in ticket prices, rock fans will now see ten great rock bands for the price of one. For the cost of a Mötley Crüe concert, fans will see a day long rock festival with Mötley as the headliners. Crüe Fest 2 kicks off in Camden, NJ on July 19th with tickets available now at www.LiveNation.com.

Crüe Fest 2
stars Mötley Crüe with Godsmack, Theory of a Deadman, Drowning Pool and introduces Charm City Devils. The performances on the Monster Energy Stage will be staggered between the main stage acts creating a non-stop music event and adding to the overall festival atmosphere.

"It's always been in our hearts to turn our fans onto new rock music. Another stage seems to be just what the doctor ordered for Crüe Fest 2 and gives loyal Crüe and rock fans more for their hard earned money. See ya there," said Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Vince Neil and Tommy Lee.

Mötley Crüe
manager Allen Kovac notes, “Mötley Crüe has always added value for their fans whether it be through their music, their merchandise or their stage production, it has served them well in their career.”

Local radio stations will chose the opening band in select tour markets where the Monster Energy Stage will play. For more information about each local area contest and the chance to open the Monster Energy Stage, including how to enter, please visit www.cruefest2.com.

Monster Energy
has dedicated its brand to live music over the years as part of major National and International festivals, specialty concert tours and substantial one-offs, in both core sponsor and associate sponsor categories utilizing on-site activation through multiple avenues. The partnership with Crüe Fest 2 marks the first time Monster Energy will have a mobile stage dedicated entirely to their brand.

Monster Energy Stage
will create a unique online community offering exclusive content from Crüe Fest 2 acts, in addition to the local bands. To kick off this opportunity, the anthem of Crüe Fest 2, Charm City Devils’Let’s Rock-N-Roll,” will be available as a free download. The new site is set to launch soon, visit www.monsterenergy.com for details.

Mötley Crüe is such an iconic band with the most loyal fans in the world. In a time where it seems everything is being cut back, Mötley Crüe is giving more to its fans and at the same time giving up and coming bands exposure. Monster Energy is proud to be a part of the havoc that will be wreaked across the nation this summer,” says Brent Hamilton of Monster Energy.

***The Monster Second Stage will NOT travel to Minot, ND, Portland, OR, Las Vegas, NV, Kansas City, MO and Syracuse, NY.***

Opiate For The Masses Unleash 'Manifesto', Announce Tours
July 10, 2008
The wait is finally over, as the leaders of the new hard rock revolution, Opiate For The Masses,’ latest full length opus, 'Manifesto', is now available everywhere. The release of 'Manifesto' follows a hugely successful tour with Filter and 10 Years, which wraps up in LA this weekend. This leads the band immediately into a string of headlining radio dates before they join back up with Filter for a short direct support run. In August, the band will be featured on the GrindCo. Sports Tour, which also features Sevendust, Drowning Pool and Nonpoint.

The group’s first single entitled, “Burn You Down,” is currently #45 on the Active Rock Chart and climbing. A striking video for the track was shot by acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, Helmet), and its explosive content will literally and figuratively blow you away! Head over to the band's Myspace page now to check it out.

Critical acclaim is coming in for the band’s music: “This album would make a vampire grin with his pearly white fangs,” says The Cleveland Leader and Playback Press.com adds; “Opiate For The Masses is, in my humble opinion, one of the hottest rising bands.”

Hot Topic has announced a limited edition two disc version of 'Manifesto' to be sold exclusively through their stores nationwide. The set will be sold at a special introductory price ($7.99) and will feature a second disc filled with three, new exclusive tracks not available anywhere else.

'Manifesto' was recorded by two Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum producers: Ulrich Wild (Slipknot, Deftones) and John Travis (Kid Rock, Buckcherry). The new offering is a propulsive mix of sheer hard rock aggression, soaring melodies and electronic experimentation that could be best described as Alice In Chains meets Nine Inch Nails.

The group’s talents and determination are also well respected by their peers as Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) states: “Opiate For The Masses...I think they're going to be big.” Woozyfly.com agrees – having debuted their video and a new interview with the group recently to herald the album’s release, which can be viewed below.
