HighVolMusic recording artist Modern Superstar will be on hiatus for the rest of 2013. The band and management have decided to take a break for the remainder of 2013. “It’s time to see where we go from here. We’ve been battling in the trenches for quite some time and although we have made some great progress, we still have some things to work on.” says founder Ryche Green.
Before anyone gets any crazy notions, NO there are no issues at this time. It’s just down time.
HighVolMusic has announced that San Diego hard rock band SLEDD has signed a worldwide, multi-release deal with the label. The band had a signing party and signed their contract in front a sold out crowd at Ramona Mainstage in Ramona, CA Sunday night November 10th.Formed by vocalist Cary Rothman, keyboardist Peter DeLuke, and drummer Dino DeLuke, SLEDD also features guitarist Kevin Michael and bassist Ronnie Hough. No strangers to the scene, SLEDD has toured nationally with Tesla, Gilby Clark and played with a host of artists that include Blue Oyster Cult, Filter, Great White, Queensryche, Ratt, UFO and more.
“I am stoked about SLEDD joining the family. I was approached about checking out new material from SLEDD but I also started looking back at everything they’ve ever done and none of it has seen the light of day. Each project is impressive in its own right and SLEDD has grown with each project and their musicianship is skilled and top-notch. SLEDD is a really diverse band and their music is solid” - Bill Chavis, HVM
