Bullet Tooth is proud to welcome The Paramedic to their already impressive roster of bands! Intensity, emotion and raw power are three ways to describe Dayton, OH’s The Paramedic. But to pigeon hole the band with just three words would simply be an injustice to this group. Formed in late 2010 by friends Jake Nolan (Guitar), Travis Adkins (Bass), Tony Hovater (Drums), Sean Salasny (Guitar) and Mike Luciano (Lead Vocals); The Paramedic is poised to spearhead the next generation of dynamic metalcore bands, thanks in part to Luciano’s diverse R&B background. The band delivers a unique mix blending the insanity of Asking Alexandria, the electro-sensibilities of Attack Attack, and the soulfulness of Jonny Craig.
Living the dream is a philosophy that Mike Luciano and the guys thrive to live out on a daily basis and will have nothing stand in their way. Against his parents’ wishes, Luciano dropped out of college to pursue his dream of making it in the world of music. This intense internal struggle has made Luciano’s lyrics a personal one-of-a-kind statement that range from raising awareness towards rape to standing up for what you believe in. Judging by the nearly 300,000 views of their cover of Lil’ Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” on YouTube and their 40,000 fans on Facebook, all of the hard work and life altering decisions have been worth it.
In early 2012, the bands’ dream finally came together when New Jersey based record label, Bullet Tooth, signed The Paramedic to a deal. Joining other acts such as Affiance and Serianna, the band is sure to reach new audiences that they only ever dreamed about. “It’s been our dream to not only be signed to a label, but also to a label that we know and trust and with Bullet Tooth, we know we are getting just that” said vocalist Mike Luciano.
The band is currently in pre-production for their debut full length for Bullet Tooth which is expected to be released sometime in late 2012. Luciano goes on to say “We could have never done this without the help of a reputable label and now that we have the backing of an amazing label, we plan on making nothing but the best for our fans. We cannot wait to see what the future holds”.
Fans can catch the band on tour this Spring with A Faylene Sky and Sirens & Sailors. More tours and dates will be announced. Stay tuned!

The Paramedic is a metalcore band from Ohio that was started in 2010. Their most recent CD, “Smoke & Mirrors” was released by Bullet Tooth Records in late 2012.
Eddie Would Be Proud is one of their most popular songs, and if you listen you can tell why. With a mixture of raw screams, clean (auto-tuned) vocals and some sick guitar riffs this song is hard not to listen to. The song goes great with the video with a dark sound in some of the breakdowns along with the vocalist’s quest to kill the kid he is serving. The video has a dark and eerie feel that really compliments the lyrical value of this song. The lyrics are very well written and seem to tell the story of a man fighting the evil inside of him. Give these guys a listen! They are playing at the Crofoot in Pontiac, Michigan tomorrow. Tickets are 10$ in advance or 12$ at the door.
Kentucky’s Dead Icons have announced their debut album for Bullet Tooth titled Condemned will be out everywhere January 24, 2012.
The band just recently wrapped up production at Warrior Sound Studios in Chapel Hill, NC and Jaime King (BTBAM, Deception of a Ghost) handled mastering. For now fans can listen to a few songs off of Vultures on their Facebook page. The band has released two studio update videos on Vimeo that you can watch here and here.
Vocalist Will Johns checked in to say, “We’ve got 12 songs for this record and in my opinion they are without a doubt the best material we have ever written in this band. I think that people who have listened to us since the start and new fans as well will be satisfied with them, it’s got a little bit of something for everyone.”
Cleveland’s newest rising stars Affiance will drop their highly anticipated new single “You WIll Be Replaced” on June 19! Coinciding with the release will be a worldwide premiere of the song at AltPress.com. The new song was produced by Carson Slovak at Atrium Audio who has recently finished records for August Burns Red, Texas In July, and more! The song is an absolute behemoth and will no doubt hold fans over until their sophomore album to be released later this year.
Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented on “You WIll Be Replaced”, “To be honest, we are pissed off. This song is a message to everyone who has slammed doors in our faces or tried to hold us back. "Your taunts have only increased our pace.” It’s the beginning of the end. We feel this is the best song we have written and we’re excited to finally share it with our fans, and hope it will cure any confusion about what type of band we are or what genre we belong in. It’s far more metal and a more fine-tuned version of our best stuff from our first album, No Secret Revealed.“
Affiance recently appeared AS A CARTOON (yes, a cartoon) in a new interview with South Africa's MK Ondergrond! The interview appeared on national SA television but can be seen on YouTube along with recent interviews with In Flames and The Used. Singer Dennis Tvrdik talks about their hometown of Cleveland, the metal and hardcore scenes, touring, music videos, and more. Check it out!
The guys launched their new music video for ”Nostra Culpa“ this Spring and it is available on YouTube! The video showcases the band doing what they do best, and that is performing LIVE. Check them out in front of a packed headlining set at Peabody’s in their hometown of Cleveland! Of course if you haven’t seen their groundbreaking music video for ”Call To The Warrior“ (400,000+ views), you need to watch it immediately!
Affiance have recently wrapped up US tours with Memphis May Fire, Close Your Eyes, Serianna, The Color Morale, Stray From The Path, Vanna, This Or The Apocalypse and Deception Of A Ghost. Their debut album ”No Secret Revealed“ is out now on Bullet Tooth.
Serianna have been chosen to appear on the upcoming Motel 6 “Rock Yourself To Sleep” Tour this Fall with Alesana, A Skylit Drive, Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis May Fire and Attila. Hot on the heels of the release of their debut album “Inheritors” (July 26) the band is excited to get out on the road and show the country what they are all about! James Milbrandt (Guitar) checked in to say, "We are all really excited to be a part of this years Rock Yourself To Sleep tour. We’re such big fans of all the bands on the tour and its going to be exciting to see what each night is going to bring. Pick up your copy of Inheritors and come out and sing along with us!“
The debut album "Inheritors” from Serianna (Madison, WI) is available everywhere NOW! Fans can listen to the songs “Fragments” and “Guilty Spark” at their Facebook page, and watch a full length video promo of the title track “Inheritors” at YouTube. Their songs “Fragments” and “Inheritors” are also available NOW on Rock Band for Xbox 360.
Serianna is navigating past its peers in pursuit of something worth preserving, systematically through the muddy gridlock of the current independent music scene. This metal-core squad continues to refine their unique sound while maintaining a solid reputation as one of the region’s most exciting and energetic live acts. Boasting determination as their greatest attribute, Serianna formed in late 2006 as merely high school friends with a bonded passion for heavy music. The lineup was solidified in 2009 when Chicago native Chris Nutting signed on as the band’s front man. Nutting quickly made his presence known contributing his raw and emotional vocal abilities and bringing Serianna to a previously unreached tier of musicianship.
Writing songs with a sound reminiscent of bands like August Burns Red and The Devil Wears Prada, Serianna set out to spread their music to anyone with an open mind and positive attitude. Jumping at every opportunity afforded to them, the band began growing rapidly around the Midwest and have played shows with August Burns Red, Attack Attack, Miss May I, Misery Signals, Chiodos, The Color Morale, Of Machines, Before Their Eyes, In Fear and Faith, Born of Osiris, I The Breather, Bury Your Dead, Suicide Silence, Emarosa, Bless the Fall, I Wrestled a Bear Once, and more. Serianna’s efforts culminated in 2010 as they began work on their debut full length album, appropriately titled, “Inheritors”. This marks the tenure of the band as they mesh the style and intensity of the music they grew up listening to with the originality and technicality Serianna has come to be synonymous with.
Their hard work did not go unnoticed as Josh Grabelle (President / Bullet Tooth) tracked the band’s progress on the demos and invited the band to partner with his label Bullet Tooth. “We couldn’t be more excited to release this record with Bullet Tooth” drummer Chris Ferarro comments, “Over the last couple of months Josh has showed so much direction and interest in us that we’re positive Bullet Tooth is the perfect home for Serianna”. “Inheritors” was just released on July 26, 2011 which will surely mean a breakout year for the band. Despite any future hardships or unforeseen roadblocks, Serianna is determined to accomplish what they have been working toward all along; creating music worth remembering.

According to guitarist, Ryan Baustert, “It’s going to be good to get some more tunes out there for everyone to hear. These songs are tracks that we recorded prior to “What Doesn’t Kill Us” and we’ve been saving them for a rainy day.” Vocalist James Clark added, “The heart of the lyrics are about still having hope when the world seems against you. It’s about seeing the big picture and understanding that you can’t change the hand you have been dealt but you can make choices to change your outcome. No matter how difficult or hard some things seem, choose to change your own ending. It’s your story and you are the writer.”
Revolver Magazine recently launched the worldwide premiere of the new Throw The Fight music video for “Not So Hollywood”! Check it out at RevolverMag.com (or at VEVO). “Triple Threat Productions did a KILLER job producing the video. We had a great team going into this project and the whole experience was a ton of fun. All the people in this video are all close friends of the band, so that made everything that much more enjoyable. They made this video possible.” - Ryan Baustert (Guitar)
