They are 4 of the hottest young bands/artists in music right now, gracing the cover of magazines, headlining the most popular Alternative/Rock tour in the world, and selling out show after show across the country! They have millions of fans around the world (They have more Facebook fans than some of the most successful acts in the world!), and have all achieved Multi-Platinum status at such a young stage of each of their career. Watch these interviews as “The King Of Kamelot” sits down for exclusives with each one of them to discuss their careers, their success, headlining The Warped Tour along with 3Oh!3 and Simple Plan who I posted interviews with already but are more of the veteran group where these artists are newbie headliners, and what it’s like to know that you are the one of hottest acts in each of their genres:
1) Asking Alexandria-They are being called the “New Face Of Hard Rock” by Guitar World (Which they just graced the cover of!), and in less than a year have seen their second album go 3x Platinum already and opening at #9 on the Billboard 200 , and are the biggest English import to enter the US in quite a while (They just graced the cover of the UK’s biggest Rock Magazine, Kerrang!) having just performed on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel!
2) August Burns Red-Their first album, Constellations, opened at #24 on The Billboard 200, and their newest album, Leveler, just opened in June at #11 on the Billboard 200, making them one of the top young hard rock bands in music already!! From the cover of Alternative Press to Fox’s “American Dad”, this band has become one of the new faces of Metal
3) The Ready Set-Justin Witzigrueter is already being compared to Justin Bieber, with his last single “Love Like Woe” going Platinum, appearing on the cover of Alternative Press, and he was as one of the members of “They Came As Romans” called him, “The Talk of the tour” also adding “I can’t remember an artist packing so many girls into one show on every stop…ever!”. He is signed to Pete Wentz’s (Multi-Platinum member of Fall Out Boys) super label, Decaydance Records, along with stars like Travie McCoy, Cobra Starship, Panic At The Disco, and Fall Out Boys, and is poised to become the face of the label with his next album
4) Relient K-Since forming in 1997, Relient K has released five full-length albums (of which three have been certified Gold), five EPs and a Christmas collection, toured incessantly, scored a string of hit singles, a Grammy nomination and two Dove awards, and performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and numerous other national TV shows. The Los Angeles Times praised Relient K for “its smart blend of punk pop and power pop, weaving together influences as diverse as the Beach Boys, Blink-182 and Fountains of Wayne” while Spin noted: “Few bands play punk-influenced modern rock as proficiently.” But the band’s quirky sense of humor remains intact and there’s a fresh excitement about the future.
