xDeathstarx sign w/ Facedown Records
Official press release (Facedown Records): With an all out attack that no one can rival, headcount no one dares challenge and a message no one can resist, prepare for the xDeathstarx. Eight members strong and three singers up on everyone else, xDeathstarx heils from the utopian land of Redlands, California, where your friends are your family, IBC root beer replaces Budweiser, a church called 'Titheme' houses a service full of hardcore kids, Thanksgiving is celebrated with a "ThanksVegan" feast and C-lo gets rolled in exchange for tattoo's. xDeathstarx opened the floodgates in summer of 2002 after releasing their five-song demo, "Beware of the xDeathstarx" in 2003. The energy of their live performance and brutal musical style has put them at the forefront of the already booming So-Cal hardcore scene. Blending the sounds of At the Gates, Disembodied, and Hatebreed with lyrics that mirror their philosophy of positive living and heart-felt scene experience, their anthems are undeniably fierce, and so is their vision. This band is on a warpath to mark their place in the world. They bring a vast collective of musicianship to create a wall of sound that will leave you ravaged yet uplifted. xDeathstarx will be appearing at Facedown Fest and The New England Metal And Hardcore Festival. They will also be playing on Jesse James' "Monster Garage" on Monday, March 27. Mark your calendars for that. xDeathstarx are recording their debut Facedown release in May at Trax East Studios with Eric Rachel. An August '06 release date and titled will be announced soon. In the meantime, check out some of their music on Pure Volume.
