If any of you who were into metal at any point during the past decade remember the band Unearth, my old band's drummer just joined them as a full time member. I don't know how popular they are anymore, but at one point they were probably one of the top 5 metalcore bands on earth. They're kicking off a headlining American tour soon and then will be flying overseas to play a bunch of European dates and festivals. One of the nicest dudes and most kickass drummer I've ever met. Check out this latest video from him...
I think Unearth are still fairly popular. I am actually thinking about checking them out in December with Chimaira. Not quite as excited since I just heard Skeletonwitch will be skipping that date. I think unearth is alright, but they are a little on the generic side.

So I’m sure this is 100% against board etiquette, but I wanted to throw a plug out there for my little brother’s band. They’re called The Canyon Rose Outfit and they will be putting out their second self produced self released album in February. If you are from the Edmonton and Calgary area they will be playing there quite a bit next year. As his brother I know this sounds pretty biased, but they do put on an amazing and ridiculously fun rock n’ roll show if you’re into that sort of thing. Usually they gig with 2-3 guitars, bass, drums, horns, and a big honkin’ Hammond organ. They are all in their very early twenties.
The Music: Sounds like My Morning Jacket, Drive-By Truckers, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Grateful Dead.
I’d say that “Homemade Wine”, “FM”, “Forking In The River Of Time”, “Terrible Weight”, and “Thin” are pretty representative of their overall sound. “Tennessee Rain” is bloated guitar assault number if that does anything for ya.
If anyone would like a free cd PM me with yo’ address and I’ll send you one. If anyone in Edmonton wants news on their shows you can PM me too. They will be at The Brixx on Jan 7 in Edmonton.
I at least put this in the appropriate thread. I try not to be that guy who copycapits all over the place, but one of my bands finished some recordings and 2 of the songs are mixed and the guy who's producing made them sound great.
