    Then you should say in large bold letters on your site that those songs were not authored by you guys, you didnt even list the authoring studio that did them.

    I would suggest having something like an "our friends songs" page, listing the songs by other companies ALONG WITH the name of the company that authored them.

    because then other bands looking to be on RBN might think they authored those songs as choose them as their authoring studio based (at least partially) off of that

    The important thing is that it's getting fixed. As soon as our webmaster is available the site will make sure those songs are labeled as being from another authoring group and Raymond's blog will either get taken down or will be changed.

    Echozone, Fastball, and ASP proudly announce a partnership to bring some amazing European talent to Rock Band.

    Pump, Cosmic Tribe and Cancer will be the first three acts to hit tht Rock Band Network.

    EchoZone

    Fastball

    Cosmic Tribe --COSMIC TRIBE thats New Rock/Heavy Grunge Rock mixed with straight stoner Rock'n Roll, packed in a powerful, modern sound garb, with danceable grooves and earcatching melodies.

    COSMIC TRIBE do not copy the modern day alternative / indierock / crossover / NuMetal sounds. They create their own sound, where you can hear influences from 80s hard rockers like Billy Idol to modern day heavy rock bands. COSMIC TRIBE were founded in 1999 and published five records since 2000. Beside live gigs all over germany, the two pairs of brothers toured three weeks in Houston, TX! Bromme joined the band in 2005. COSMIC TRIBE supported PERSONA NON GRATA (Ex-Kyuss), MOTHER TONGUE and SUB7even

    Cancer -- CANCER is the newest project of Joel Bader from the Swiss city of Basel. This band is not even around for a year and they already had their first tour and released their first album called "FAMILY, MUSIC, ME". The album has been recorded and co-produced by Clemens Matznick (Donots, Guano Apes, Revolverheld, Rammstein, etc. ). Followed by their next tour with HEYMIKE! and THE CASTING OUT in May 2010
    http://www.myspace.com/cancer111

    Pump -- After releasing “Against Everyone’s Advice” (2004) and “Breakdown To Breakthrough” (2006), PUMP - coming from the area around Stuttgart/Germany - are back with their third album “Sonic Extasy”.
    Since 2001 PUMP play solid hard rock in the tradition of bands like Dokken, Skid Row and Tesla, celebrating the 80ies rock sound. Their solid and steadily growing fan base just loves them. PUMP got a lot of attention from the media and rock icons like Axel Rudi Pell and Queensryche personally invited them to play as a support act on their tours in 2005 and 2004 respectively. PUMP have already played many shows and festivals in nearly every European club with bands like Shakra, U.D.O., Saidian, UFO or Vengeance. Like every other ambitious rock band PUMP do feel at home on stage.

    Some more new acts on there way as ASP and Masquerade will be each working with other to bring some great bands to the RBN! All 3 acts are on the Warped Tour this Year~

    American Sixgun-- In a world where new, mediocre bands are trying to call what they play “rock music”, American Sixgun sought to bring the real thing. With their brand of Rock, Southern, Blues and Metal, the band pays homage to the classic rock bands that inspired them while looking towards the future making their own place in today’s rock world. American Sixgun formed in the spring of 2009. They signed to Eulogy Recordings (Red/Sony) only five weeks later and spent the summer of 2009 touring on the Vans Warped Tour and supporting tour dates with Bayside in the fall of 2009. ASG released their debut CD on Eulogy on November 24th 2009. American Sixgun will release a double EP "Gypsy Circus & The Southern Wind – Vol. I & II" summer of 2010 on Masquerade Recordings (ADA/Warner). They will be returning to the Vans Warped Tour for 2010 as well as being featured on the soundtrack for the upcoming video game "Nail'd" (Deep Silver/Techland).

    His Name Was Iron --- Spreading the seeds of positive rock and roll vibrations throughout the universe, His Name Was Iron is a force to be reckoned with! Partying hard and rocking even harder, the band has been to hell and back to bring the world what it needs; Southern Party Metal. Bust out the red meat, cheap beer and shield your daughters eyes from the brilliant, blinding awesomeness eminating from the souls of these 5 fine gentlemen. Hailing from the home of Southern Rock, Jacksonville, Florida the band consists of Ryan Porter on vocals, Evan Paluszynski on guitar and vocals, Shaun Taunton on drums, Josh Scott on guitar and Adam "Dutch" Silk on bass.
    They formed in late 2008 by playing shows in Jacksonville and with a great reception they decided to put out a self titled EP in October 2008. Shortly after this release they had an amazing oppurtunity to play Planetfest 9, an outdoor radio festival held annually in Jacksonville. Fast forward another year and the band has made some positive lineup changes bringing in Josh Scott in on guitar and Adam "Dutch" Silk on bass and moving Ryan Porter from guitar to lead vocals.
    With this lineup solidified the band decided to ink a deal with Masquerade Recordings/Warner Music Group and began writing and recording their first record, "Chariots For Hire" due out August 10th 2010. The band will be hitting East Coast dates on the 2010 Warped Tour this summer from July 18 - 26, so keep an eye out for them and for their debut record "Chariots For Hire".

    Kelsey and the Chaos -- If Kelsey and the Chaos has yet to infiltrate your iTunes Library, then you are definitely missing out. The pop/rock act from New York City formed in spring of 2008, and since then has compiled quite an impressive list of accomplishments and accolades. In 2009 the band was featured as one of Alternative Press Magazine’s “100 Bands You Need To Know in 2009”. They toured with such bands as Forever the Sickest Kids, The White Tie Affair, and countless others, as well as being featured on Warped Tour 2009 on the Kia/Kevin Says Stage. The buzz around the band caught attention Raleigh, NC’s Tragic Hero Records, who signed the band in May of 2009. The band is currently writing for their next album, as well as touring endlessly in support of their August 2009 released “Shut Up and Deal”. “Shut Up and Deal” is available now through all digital media outlets.

    Some new songs heading in to production this week

    God in a Machine -

    WE ARE THE END OF DAYS Words that have rang clear in the heads of the underground scene for the past few years, a warning of sorts of things to come. God in a machine started in 1994, when front man (4) and now ex guitarist Enoch decided to start making music. Years later the band has become more than a music project it has become a music monster. The band has remained underground for years, keeping them selves from the general public, but now the monster is begining to crawl from its hole and soon the world will scream its name.

They are working on getting out of San Diego on a tour by summer 2010. If you want to know more about them feel free to ask they are always down to talk to people.

    Sin Theorem heading to the RBN from ASP-Prod

    SIN THEOREM is an explosive and arrogant metal force forming from the ruins of four locally successful bands. From founder Ronnie Lee Graham’s ten years as the drummer of west coast’s progressive metal band “Fury” and “The Anvil Chorus” in the early to late ‘90’s, selling out shows from LA’s Whiskey-A-Go-Go to Phoenix Arizona’s Electric Ball Room and the Mason Jar; selling 10,000 copies of their first record with out label support comes a modernized sledgehammer savior to implement the ways of old without error.

    The technical and down right brutal drumming style of Ronnie Lee Graham in addition to his, and the rest of the bands, patience and dedication makes him the backbone and foundation of SIN THEOREM. With a size 14 shoe, he hits a heavy bass drum kick!

    In the center of the SIN THEOREM spotlight, is the intense vocalist Chad Miller. At 6’5” he’s hard to miss and in your face. Chad commands the stage and his every move is watched intensely. Chad was born to entertain and will leave a lasting impression on everyone he meets.

    The guitarist's that fronts SIN THEOREM’s assault of heart stopping low end riffs and melodious runs is Tony Massey and Alex Diesel As musicians and friends they blend perfectly w/ Chad in their music and passion for playing their music for the masses at large.

    SIN THEOREM could not properly operate without a proficient bassist to hold down the thick and thunderous rhythm section. Peg-Leg Petey Pedula, also of Lungwurm, is an essential part of the musical development and the oil through SIN THEOREM’s gears.

    Collectively, SIN THEOREM in current and past projects have opened up for bands such as Powerman 5000, Mushroomhead, ZEKE, Kittie, Fates Warning, Megadeth, Testament, Slashes Snake Pit, Sex Slaves, Hemlock, In This Moment, Goatwhore, Cannibal Corpse, Yngwie Malmstein, Bobaflex, Corrosion of Conformity,Dope,Mower,Straight Line Stitch, and many more.

    SIN THEOREM provides an outstanding live show, which excites, stimulates, and moves the audience. SIN THEOREM is as exciting to watch as they are to hear. SIN THEOREM is five gifted artists doing what they do best - making timeless music.

    SIN THEOREM is ready to take their musical careers to the next level and show the world the new face of metal music. It’s a bold and clich

    New talent heading to the RBN from ASP-Prod
    The Nervous Wreckords! full CD !

    After 3 albums, 4 EP's, and 5 years of extensive international touring as a co-singer/guitarist/songwriter of LOUIS XIV, Brian Karscig met Anthony Saffery (producer and member of UK band Cornershop) in 2008 when having a drink in a hotel bar before a gig in Cambridge, MA.
    Karscig explains 'I've always been a fan of Cornershop. I loved their ‘Brimful of Asha’ song and video, and have seen Anthony playing sitar with Noel Gallagher on a Beatles tribute performance on the BBC. We started chatting and hit it off that evening. We kept in touch via email and phone, and would regularly send each other mixes from bands we were respectively producing, and really appreciated what the other was bringing to the sound of the songs. Soon after, I sent him some songs I had been recording, and he loved them! We started working on some tracks together by sending hard drives of files across the country. I love the club/eastern/beat element Anthony does creatively and really wanted to incorporate that into the new music.’ The result: The Nervous Wreckords were born in June 2009.
    Karscig and Saffery finished five songs together in Cambridge, MA at the famous Camp St. Studios (Radiohead, Pixies, Lemonheads, etc.) and released THE NAILBIGHTER EP, a collection of songs that infuse dance/club beats with rocking 70’s glam guitar riffs, in December 2009. The EP features Karscig on vocals, guitars, and pianos, Saffery on break beats and synths, as well as friends gathered from years of touring (Mark Maigaard /Louis XIV, Ray Suen/The Killers, Mark Stoermer/The Killers, and Steve Smith/Dirty Vegas). In support of the EP, The Nervous Wreckords toured with The Killers and played shows at CMJ 2009 in NYC and SXSW 2010.
    The Nervous Wreckords are now looking forward to 2010 and the release of their full-length debut, VALUMINIUM. The album features more of the lyrically clever songs, beats, and catchy guitar riffs that The Nervous Wreckords fans have grown to love.
    'I want to make records that I want to listen to everyday, have fun and continue being our own ‘favorite band’. The album and the EP are a dying art, and I plan to do my part to keep making them in a way that a collection of songs identify us as artists rather than just a “single”. I want to keep making music that challenges us to grow, and go new places artistically, but that is also still fun, relatable, and that everyone can dance to.***.’ b. karscig.
    THE NERVOUS WRECKORDS are:
    Brian Karscig – Guitar/Vocals/Pianos
    L. Matheson-guitar
    C.Cate-bass
    M. Gorney-keys/synths
