STAN SOOCHER'S 'BABY YOU'RE A RICH MAN' UNCOVERS NEW SCOOPS ABOUT THE BEATLES' MUSIC, PERSONAL AND BUSINESS LEGAL DISPUTES

DENVER - The Beatles have been the subject of countless books - but none like attorney/award-winning journalist Stan Soocher's new book, Baby You're a Rich Man: Suing the Beatles for Fun & Profit (ForeEdge/University Press of New England).

Part Beatles history, part legal thriller, Baby You're a Rich Man delivers a fascinating, inside look at key court battles that shaped the Beatles' music, their personal lives and business ventures. "My goal was to place readers right in the center of the action," Soocher said, "from backroom negotiations to detectives chasing the Beatles through concert halls and hotels with lawsuit summonses, to eye-opening courtroom scenes that revealed the band members' inner thoughts about who they were and what their music meant to them."

Through extensive research into rare court documents and from fresh interviews, Soocher has uncovered significant new information about the most popular group in music history. The book takes a look at everything from early legal problems over Beatlemania merchandise to relationships with the band's first fully dedicated manager, Brian Epstein, and notorious last manager Allen Klein, Paul McCartney's lawsuit to break up the Beatles, John Lennon's immigration fight to become a U.S. citizen, and song copyright-infringement suits filed against Lennon over "Come Together" and George Harrison over "My Sweet Lord."

Baby You're a Rich Man begins in the era when Epstein opened the Pandora's box of rock 'n' roll merchandising, making a hash of the band's licensing and inviting multiple lawsuits in the United States and the United Kingdom. The band's long breakup period, from 1969 to 1971, provides a backdrop to the Machiavellian grasping of new manager Klein, who unleashed a blizzard of suits and legal motions to take control of the band, their music and Apple Records. Unsavory mob associate Morris Levy first sued John Lennon for copyright infringement over "Come Together," then sued him again for not making a record for him. Phil Spector, hired to record a Lennon solo album, walked off with the master tapes and held them for a king's ransom. And from 1972 to 1975, Lennon was the target of a deportation campaign personally spearheaded by key aides of President Nixon (prodded on by a drug-addled Elvis Presley) that wound endlessly through the courts.

In all, what emerges from Baby You're a Rich Man is a stirring portrait of immense creative talent thriving under the pressures of ill will, harassment and greed.

Baby You're a Rich Man hits stores in September 2015.

Stan Soocher is an entertainment attorney and the long-time Editor-in-Chief of the publication Entertainment Law & Finance. He is also Associate Professor of Music and Entertainment Industry Studies at the University of Colorado's Denver Campus. In addition, Soocher has won national journalism awards for his music law articles in Rolling Stone and The National Law Journal, and is the recipient of the "Texas Star Award" from the State Bar of Texas. He previously authored the book They Fought the Law: Rock Music Goes to Court. His website is www.stansoocher.com.

ARIZONA PROGRESSIVE ART ROCK BAND WITH OUR ARMS TO THE SUN SIGN WITH FADE TO SILENCE RECORDS

Image: With Our Arms To The Sun, Mazur PR, Michael MazurARIZONA DESERT - Progressive art rock band With Our Arms to the Sun is the second act to sign with the new-launched Fade to Silence Records.

With Our Arms to the Sun is a breath of fresh air in a musical landscape dominated by pop formatted bands. The Arizona desert-based foursome crafts a brand of cinematic conceptual music that aims to evoke emotion and inspire thought in listeners. The band's free-flowing style is not easily pigeon-holed, appealing to fans of not just one genre, but to people in general who appreciate music as expression.

"My son and I went to see John 5 perform in East Texas and as luck would have it, With Our Arms to the Sun were the supporting artist," said Fade to Silence founder Paul Bibeau. "Upon taking the stage, the band took complete control of the room and I was locked into every second of their performance. To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. It felt has though the band was playing the very last concert ever and wanted to put it all on the table. Their performance was thoroughly pleasing, cinematic in scope coupled with an intense, passionate delivery. I got sucked into each note, each composition and I loved they journey they took me on. I spent a few minutes with them afterwards and we began to talk more and more. I knew immediately, this is my cup of tea."

With Our Arms to the Sun's first release through Fade to Silence will be a reissue of the band's self-released A Far Away Wonder EP on CD and vinyl.

"We were anti-label for the longest time and did everything DIY," said With Our Arms to the Sun vocalist/guitarist Josh Breckenridge. "We recorded and distributed all of our own albums, and even made our own merch. One of the reasons we were not interested in being on a label was that we wanted to retain our sound. We are not interested in changing who we are artistically just to be more 'marketable' or 'commercial.' There are plenty of bands pounding that drum and we want to do something different. Paul immediately understood what we were going for as a band and rather than be a typical industry person, he encouraged our growth towards being a conceptual band. Also the chance at being one of the flagship bands on a new label that has a creative philosophy really appealed to us as artists."

With Our Arms to the Sun - which is completed by Joseph Leary, Joseph Breckenridge Jr. and John Mclucas - has three self-released recordings to their credit. The Fade to Silence re-release of A Far Away Wonder will come later this year. With Our Arms to the Sun is managed by Alan Jones/Slant Business Management and booked by Andrew Goodfriend/TKO.

With Our Arms to the Sun - "Great Black Divide"

The launch of Fade to Silence Records was announced earlier this month by former Spitfire Records company founder/president and industry veteran Paul Bibeau. The new label, which is distributed via AMPed Distribution worldwide, will focus on establishing a cutting and creative edge driven label brand, a catalog/visual/television imprint and publishing division highlighting the hard rock and heavy metal genre's broad musical spectrum.

HOPE FOR THE DAY AND THE ENTERTAINMENT INSTITUTE PARTNER FOR THE CONVERSATIONS TOUR FEATURING SAYWECANFLY

Image: Say We Can Fly, Mazur PR, Michael MazurTORONTO - Hope For The Day and The Entertainment Institute are partnering for The Conversations Tour this fall. A truly unique tour featuring SayWeCanFly, The Conversations Tour's goal is to open up dialogue where fans can express emotions and find comfort in the music and words of other fans.

"After playing Warped Tour over the summer, meeting so many different people and having conversations with them both as an artist and a human being, I thought doing a tour that is centered around conversations would be a cool idea," said SayWeCanFly's Braden Barrie. "I really want everyone to feel that what they are buying a ticket for is more than just a concert this time. I want to give everyone to the opportunity to personally connect with both myself and the other people on the tour, and not feel that they need to talk about a certain thing or topic. I think we are all scared to share our feelings these days, and I think it's very important to work on fixing that."

Barrie has spent much of the year touring, from intimate club performances to an entire summer on the Vans Warped Tour, where he has made it a point to connect personally with all of his fans. Through grassroots social media promotion, Barrie has built a dedicated network of fans who connect deeply with SayWeCanFly's music and Barrie as a person. The Conversations Tour gives Barrie a perfect opportunity to continue building a relationship with fans, as well as allowing a platform to bond as a community.

"I really want everyone to know that they don't ever have to feel insecure about who they are," he said. "The goal for this tour is really just to have everyone sitting in the same room getting to know each other. I want everyone to realize that the people in the room next to them understand their thoughts more than they probably believe. My favorite part about touring has always been the conversations I get to have with people, so I'm excited to focus on that element and really bring it to life with this tour."

Hope For The Day (HFTD) is a grassroots non-profit movement utilizing music and arts for suicide prevention and mental health education. Started in 2011, HFTD's vision is to use music and the arts as platforms for suicide prevention and mental health education. HFTD starts the conversation of prevention from stages in music venues across the globe, schools and online because prevention starts with a conversation. HFTD is a reminder that it's ok not to be ok and help is closer than you think.

"After doing amazing work with SayWeCanFly all summer on the Vans Warped Tour, we are excited to continue our advocacy efforts this fall and bring an open conversation about life to music venues across the country," said Jonny Boucher, Founder/CEO, Hope For The Day.

TEI works with gurus from all facets of the industry to create unique educational experiences. These professionals share their first-hand knowledge and experiences directly with artists.

"Braden Barrie of SayWeCanFly is a true artist with a very real passion for his fans," said TEI's Matt Halpern. "All summer we watched him perform his heart out on stage, then spend hours meeting and talking with his fans every single day. He never just said hi and shrugged off, he let them talk. He listens, and cares. He wants to know who they are, where they come from, how his music has helped them, and how he can continue to help them. That's inspiring. It's the type of inspiration that TEI is always aiming to harness through our own programs."

"Both Hope For The Day and The Entertainment Institute have been amazing partners to work with over the summer," Barrie said. "I think it's super cool to see how much they care about the kids. It's easy to sit back and talk about making a difference, but these organizations do more than just talk. I've seen first-hand how much what they do means to people, and how it helps everyone feel like they are special. I'm really stoked to have them on board with this tour."

SayWeCanFly's debut full-length, Between The Roses, was released earlier this year and re-released this summer in a Deluxe Edition via Barrie's own PureWolf label. The record debuted at # 14 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and #5 on iTunes singer/songwriter chart.

FADE TO SILENCE RECORDS ANNOUNCES ROCKETT QUEEN AS FIRST SIGNING

Image: Rockett Queen, Mazur PR, Fade To Silence Records

Goodnight California Reissue Set For Release September 25

TYLER, Texas - Fade To Silence Records is excited to announce explosive Texas rock 'n' rollers Rockett Queen as the label's very first signing.

"I ran into Rockett Queen's Walter Lee in a club in Texas and he dragged me outside to his Mustang to listen to rough track mixes of new songs the band wrote and recorded with producer extraordinaire Zac Maloy in Nashville," said Fade To Silence founder Paul Bibeau. "Suffice it say, I was floored by the quality and strength of the material. It had hooks and melody! So I ventured to Dallas to see them perform live and in all honesty, rarely have I seen such a seasoned performance delivery full of energy and engagement. Simply put, they owned it. I struck up a rapport with the guys and decided that I needed to manage this band."

The first release will be a reissue of the group's Goodnight California EP in an expanded edition, including three new tracks, on September 25.

"We had some songs we didn't get a chance to put on the first round due to time restraints and we just felt this was a perfect time to put it all together and get it out the way it was meant to be," said vocalist/guitarist Lee.

The EP will feature the original five tracks, showcasing Rockett Queen's versatility, from the hard-driving anthem "I Hate You" to the poetic sensibilities of "Since You've Been Gone." In addition to the EP's five original songs, the new version will feature the brand new song "Hey God," an acoustic version of the band's "Hard to Love" and a cover of the Misfits' punk classic "Attitude."

"I feel that there seems to be a lack of young, rock n roll bands today with memorable songs that can also put on one hell of a show," Bibeau said. "Frankly, I find it refreshing."

"'Hey God' is about the destruction and emptiness that some families face after a family member is shipped off to war," Lee said. "Realizing how many of them have to pick up the pieces and find a way to make life work without the person who was suddenly plucked out of their lives is something that hits close to me."

New conceptual videos for "I Hate You" and "Since You've Been Gone" have been shot and will be released in conjunction with the first singles to commercial radio. A lyric video for "I Hate You" has also been produced. Get your first taste here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VExVZiJ5uM.

"Hard to Love" is an acoustic preview of a track from Rockett Queen's next full-length record, which the band is currently working on with producer Zac Maloy in Nashville.

"To show some of our punk rock roots we decided to record a cover version the Misfits song 'Attitude," Lee said. "We wanted to reach back and have some fun with a style of music we all grew up loving."

Rockett Queen's brand of straight-up, honest rock 'n' roll has garnered the quartet a great deal of critical acclaim and Top 40 airplay. Performing for more than 25,000 music fans, the band's energetic live show has won over a devoted fanbase.

Said Lee: "We strive to walk that line of paying homage to what we grew up loving about rock 'n' roll and giving something new to the generation that came before us AND the kids that are at the forefront of the new rock revolution."

Rockett Queen is completed by Jay Scars on lead guitar, Chaz Graves on bass and Keith Crash on drums.
