From A Second Story Window Posts New Track Online
May 21, 2008
From a Second Story Window has unveiled "Self-Admitted" as the second track off its upcoming, May 27 release, 'Conversations'. "Self-Admitted" can be heard on the Black Market Activities MySpace page.

The first track that was released last month, "Leaving the Earth", is posted on the From a Second Story Window MySpace.

All of the ten tracks on 'Conversations' portray ordinary people dealing with relatable circumstances in today’s world. Vocalist Will Jackson combines these circumstances with his perceived future of the human existence: “The truest want of this record is to address—through these characters and a creatively controlled-chaos of musical sound—the many issues each of us face on a daily basis: war, disease, poverty, greed, the posterity of the human species, etc,”.

'Conversations' will be available everywhere on May 27th!

Sworn Enemy Comments On Upcoming Tours
April 10, 2008
New York's Sworn Enemy will continue to bring the metal to the masses via a slew of North American touring activity to support the release of their new album 'Maniacal'. Having toured Europe, Japan and the U.S. in recent weeks, they will continue their unrelenting schedule on April 14th with a series of headlining dates leading them immediately into a tour with labemates Divine Heresy. From A Second Story Window (Blackmarket/Metal Blade), With Blood Comes Cleansing (Victory) and Dance Club Massacre (Blackmarket/Metal Blade) round out the bill.

Comments guitarist Lorenzo Antonucci: “We just finished the Firestorm Fest with Earth Crisis, Terror and Shai Hulud, and though it was an honor to be part of such an amazing tour, we can't wait to bang our heads with Divine Heresy. This tour is going to be a rager, and we are very happy to be a part of it.”

Sworn Enemy will then spend May supporting Dying Fetus, further proving just how diverse their live show is and that they can easily stand tall and win over any crowd. Origin and Thy Will Be Done will be opening all of these shows.

“People sometimes forget that we've toured with heavy bands like Slayer, Cradle of Filth and Six Feet Under," Antonucci says. "Our best tours have always been with metal bands, and we're excited to once again be the underdog. We appreciate having the opportunity to show people just how heavy we can be. It's time to rage!”

Sworn Enemy Posts Video Online, Announces Spring Tour
March 24, 2008
New York's Sworn Enemy recently annihilated the masses across North America with Earth Crisis and Terror and will continue their unrelenting schedule this April as direct support to labemates Divine Heresy. From A Second Story Window (Blackmarket/Metal Blade), With Blood Comes Cleansing (Victory) and Dance Club Massacre (Blackmarket/Metal Blade) round out the bill.

A video for “A Place of Solace,” the first single from the new album 'Maniacal', was recently shot by acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, The Red Chord). The video made its exclusive online debut through the Headbangers Ball Blog today and premiered on MTV2 this past Saturday as well. Sal (vocals) states: “We hooked up with the amazing director David Brodsky (GWAR, The Red Chord) for this video and are stoked with the end result. The location was an abandoned psychiatric ward, so I guess you can say it pretty much fit what we were looking for. The storyline is loosely based on a father and the son that have done wrong to each other, and both, in order to achieve their ‘solace,’ believe that they’d be better off without the other… rightly or wrongly. We hope you enjoy the madness.”

Check out the video below.

Sworn Enemy have returned with 'Maniacal', their most crushing offering to date. Featuring a newly reinvigorated lineup and new home at Century Media, this 10-track offering takes the group’s sound to new heights, which sees them embracing a thrashier edge and pummeling the listener with unrivaled aggression.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2000
MEMBERS:
Will Jackson (vocals)
Derek Vasconi (guitar)
Rob Hileman (guitar)
Joe Sudrovic (bass)
Nick Huffman (drums)

From A Second Story Window is a 5 piece band hailing from Ohio-Vania," with one common goal; pushing themselves and their music to a very violent edge as somewhere out of their lives together a passion was born for extremism. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this underground sensation, From A Second Story Window coined the term Ohio-Vania" being that some of members are from Ohio while others are from Pennsylvania. We live right on the border of the aforementioned states...and there is nothing here. The towns we inhabit are hollowed out, old-steel mill towns long since forgotten. With nothing to do we listen to everything the underground scene has to offer and are pretty much tired of hearing the same boring, predictable songs over and over again. With us, it's always been one basic idea. Simply put, we are trying to create music for attention-deficit people. Juxtaposed to this is our message of loneliness, isolation, forgetting about this world and dreaming of the next one, comments Guitarist and founding member Derek Vasconi.

Delenda, the follow up to the bands highly praised Blackmarket Activities debut Not One Word Has Been Omitted, sees the band experimenting with melodious piano and singing fused with vocalists Will Jacksons heartfelt bellows and screams delivering an album that will without a doubt be a key release in the metal scene as we know it today. Working on Delenda was a learning experience, states Derek. We traveled up to Syracuse in March and spent several weeks with producer Jason Jocko Randall at More Sound Studios. What Jason was able to do is provide the band with a diverse and eclectic view on how to approach their songs and make them a wall of sound. We wanted a massive feel... guitar layers and big-sounding drums, notes Derek. Vocals ranged from the subtle to the chaotic, and includes guest stints from Billy Bottom (Nights Like These) and a group of girls who provided a gang vocal chant on Oracles and Doorsteps. The album itself chronicles the end of everything in a person's life, both from a personal and spiritual aspect. Derek explains I believe that for so many years, people got used to this idea of FASSW being a band with five songs but no real direction in terms of what they wanted to say musically. Delenda easily puts that notion to rest the moment you listen to the timpanis and piano with guitar being played by a cello bow and soaked in distortion.....the first track being the Acknowledgement of things to come. After this, its complete destruction until you come to Ghost Over Japan, a very special song that came to Derek one night while just playing around on a piano. The track demonstrates that FASSW has never said they were going to be just a metal band rather, whatever is necessary to get the point of a song across, that's the medium which will be utilized in exploring soundscapes.  Vocalist Will Jackson takes this idea a step further by employing his powerful singing voice throughout key points in the album. Everyone in the band felt that this would not betray their ultimate intentions as a group, which is to make music for A.D.D. kids.

Delenda was a painstaking process and not only channels the spirit of FASSW that has been in everyone's hearts for several years now, but it also lays the groundwork for the next album, which will continue to explore ideas of loss and redemption. Delenda is ready to be heard by the world let's hope the world understands.
