Tooth & Nail Records continues to find talent with a dash of attitude, and Queens Club is no exception.  Hailing from Kansas City, Queens Club debuted last night on the DANCE! RAWR! DANCE! tour with Family Force 5, Breathe Carolina, Cash Cash & I Rival (tour dates below).  Their “The Nightmarer EP” will be available on the road as well as Zambooie.com and released on iTunes in the coming weeks. For more info, visit their artist page on Toothandnail.com
Queens Club, formed in 2008 by ex-members of The Chariot, are unashamedly accessible. Their sound is in the vein of bands like Franz Ferdinand or Bloc Party.  Queens Club brings plenty of orginality and attitude to the table and claim they are destined heirs to the rock throne and are ready to rule the hearts of music lovers worldwide. Skeptical? Just wait until the  full-length label debut will releases in 2010.  Fans who have already had a chance to hear the band know exactly what defines Queens Club, and those who don’t will most assuredly join the Club.

Queens Club is: Jake Ryan, Daniel Eaton, Andrew Nichols and Tyler Bottles.  You can find out more and hear some samples at myspace.com/queensclubus and follow the band on Twitter @QNS_CLB.

Queens Club is available for phone, email or in-person interviews.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
