Orange, CA (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
Before an audience of thousands at the Grove in Anaheim, Calif., Longway was center stage as they took home the award for "Best Punk Act" in Southern California from the Orange County Music Awards (http://www.orangecountymusicawards.com).
The band's late 2007 release "Come N Get It!' has been applauded critically as a no frills rock n roll gem. In addition, the band's music video for the single "Fade to Grey" has become an Internet sensation garnering thousands of views on various music sites including Blank TV. Longway are set to continue the push for the album "Come N get It" with a slue of live dates including a West Coast Tour and a supporting spot with legends Agent Orange, and will be involved in this summer's Vans Warped Tour.
Longway will also be featured in the second installment of the hugely successful Old Shoe Records compilation, "Welcome to the Family". The initial release in the summer of 2007 generated thousands of hits daily for Old Shoe Records (http://www.oldshoerecords.com), prompted a significant increase in downloads, and was the hot item of last summer's Vans Warped Tour. With over 5,000 copies hitting the streets of the first volume, 'Welcome to the Family Vol. 2" will see an initial release of over 20,000 copies to coincide with the 2008 Vans Warped Tour coming to Southern California beginning June 20, 2008.
In association with Lucky 13 Apparel (http://www.lucky13apparel.com), the compilation features 18 tracks from Old Shoe Recording artists including Longway, Room of Amontillado, and Underclass Heroes as well as other highly touted artists including The Generators, Far from Finished, Angel City Outcasts, Los Creepers, and Sederra. Old Shoe Records founder Josh Stolo talked about the release, "We wanted to highlight some of the other like minded bands in the scene. Everyone on this compilation are great at what they do."
