For Immediate Release
January 27, 2010 [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]
All-girl Punk Band Tijuana Sweetheart
(Formerly Known as VAGIANT) to Appear in
Rock Band Network
"A rose by any other name would smell as drunk."- RockBand.com forums
Due to a legal dispute, the truculent, wayward girls of the band formerly known as VAGIANT (Boston) have changed their name to Tijuana Sweetheart.
After hundreds of often off-beat band name suggestions from fans, the band selected Tijuana Sweetheart a name which comes from a cocktail of the girls invention (and from the bands unique slang term for a prostitute).
The name change goes into effect immediately. Merchandise with the bands former name will continue to be available at the bands forthcoming website, www.TijuanaSweetheart.com, for a limited time at a discounted rate. For comment on the name change, please contact the bands formidable, motorcycle outlaw lawyer, John Taxiarchis, at [email]email@example.com[/email].
Three tracks from Tijuana Sweethearts album Trash Candy will appear on Rock Band Network: No Mercy, Sticks & Stones, and Trash Candy. The songs are being authored by the talented team at Rock Gamer Studios, and the band hopes that the launch of these new downloadable tracks for Rock Band will help get the word out about their necessary name change.
The band will debut their new name at their Valentines are for Pussies show at the Baseball Tavern in Boston on February 13th, with the Jeddo Stars, Tired Old Bones, and the Chemical Smiles (sponsored by Narragansett Beer).
Featured on the multi-million unit-selling video games Rock Band® and Guitar Hero® II, Tijuana Sweetheart (formerly VAGIANT) has managed to expand beyond the Boston bar scene and into living rooms worldwide. The band was nominated for Punk Act of the Year in the 2009 Boston Music Awards and has performed live with such bands as Bang Camaro, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, DMZ, and the Ducky Boys.
Tijuana Sweetheart is an all-girl punk/rock outfit from Allston, MA. They enjoy playing raucous live shows, eating chicken wings, and have recently determined, as a result of their band name brainstorming, that group consensus is an exercise in futility and now believe in benevolent dictatorship.
