Bodog Battle Semifinals Feature Top Unsigned Bands in North America

Regional Semifinals And Finals Are All That Separate Bands From A $1 Million Dollar Record Contract.

For Immediate Release

With the best unsigned bands in the nation remaining, Bodog Battle surges into the American regional semifinal rounds and onto the regional finals of the worldwide competition. After enduring months of online voting and the “Impress the Judges” rounds, only the top American bands get a chance to fight for their shot at the big time and a $1 million record contract with Bodog Music ( www.bodoglife.net/music).

Just a handful of bands remain from each city, and they must now fight their toughest battles to date as they take on the remaining top bands from their region in the American regional semifinals. Only the best of the best from the American regional semifinals will earn the right to move on to the regional finals, moving one step closer to the coveted $1 million record contract with Bodog Music.

The stakes are high as the bands are being filmed for the second season of the Bodog Battle reality TV series with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage appearing online only at Bodog TV (www.bodoglife.net/tv ). The first season of the popular Bodog Battle of the Bands show aired on fuse TV last year. These bands are fighting for their musical lives on camera, as they attempt to take the next big step onto the regional finals. Playing across the country from Manhattan to San Diego, only a talented, hardworking few will get a chance to live out their dreams of a cross country tour with the hopes of a shot at the finals.

Bodog Battle of the Bands Season 1 continues its success with champions Fall From Grace and the Alternative Press popular vote back signee Fear Nuttin Band. Seattle’s Fall From Grace swept the competition and have been going non-stop since their victory at the House Of Blues L.A. finals. The four piece hard rock powerhouse has hit the studio writing with Greg Nori (Sum 41, Canadian Idol’s Hedley ) to give audiences a killer new album. Fear Nuttin Band have just emerged from the famed Studio X in Seattle, recording with heavyweight producer Terry Date (Deftones, Pantera, White Zombie) to bring audiences their new album, YARDCORE, scheduled for release through Bodog Music on April 29. A Limited Edition EP featuring special studio tracks is now available online exclusively through the Bodog Store ( www.bodoglife.net/store) and at shows on the band’s current tour with the Toasters.
