Protest The Hero #1 record, A Cursive Memory single now available!

Hello friends,

I hope everyone took the time to vote if your state was a part of Super Tuesday, I think almost everyone here did! We've had a lot going on in the Vagrant world, so here's what's happening this week:

Protest The Hero has huge first week, gets ready to storm into the US!

Congratulations to Protest The Hero for having the #1 album in Canada last week, and the #95 album here in the US! This is huge for the band is a great sign for things to come. Thanks to all of you who picked it up last week. If you haven't, you can find it on iTunes, your local Best Buy, indie record store, or on the Vagrant store! ( http://store.vagrant.com )

The band will be touring with Silverstein in the US and then has another huge tour behind that! Keep checking their myspace for more dates and info. ( http://www.myspace.com/protestthehero )

A Cursive Memory releases Everything single on iTunes, new Bandarazzi videos on MySpace

The boys in A Cursive Memory have released the first single from Changes on iTunes. You can pick up Everything and The Piano Song for only 1.49! Changes comes out on 2/19 and you can preorder the album here: ( http://www.merchlackey.com/vagrant/item_detail.php?productID=2711&clientID=320 ) All preorders come with the Respeck! EP, a signed ACM poster and a sticker!

If you go to the A Cursive Memory myspace page, you can see a new clip of the band posing as their Bandarazzi alter egos with Kevin Connolly. His reaction is priceless. The Bandarazzi clips are a prelude for the Everything video, which comes out on 2/13!

If you're in the LA area, don't forget about the 2/19 record release show for Changes at Chain Reaction! Tickets are available at ( http://www.allages.com/newweb/01_shows.cfm )

City and Colour preorder still going @ 7.99, tickets for NY and LA almost sold out.
