In less than a year's time Another Lost Year has shared the stage with the likes of national rock powerhouses including 10 Years, Pop Evil, Framing Hanley, Sore Eyes, Bobaflex, Royal Bliss, Nonpoint, Rev Theroy and Grammy performing artist Almost Kings. Completing a full touring schedule from Florida to New Jersey, Michigan to Mississippi and everywhere in between has seasoned the music to enter any ring with the best of the best. 2011 also brought the honors of "Best Rock Band" in the Carolinas. From the opening chord to the last word, ALY's live show will take you through every emotion possible, a feeling that has been proven time and time again with not just the friends and fans that attend, but also with the bands that regularly tour with ALY.

With offers to play the main stage at some of the summer concert festivals with the headliners is the year that Another Lost Year will not lose another year, quite the opposite, Clinton, Adam, David, Lee, and Andrew are writing the story of how to create your own destiny, let the journey begin…..
Simply put Elisium is passion and raw emotion in music form
ELISIUM is a 3-piece band from central (Fredericksburg) Virginia. Their sound is a unique blend of dark rock, and modern metal. Most often compared to Tool and Chevelle. Elisium sounds huge for only being 3 guys. Vocalist/Guitarist Nate Compton and brother Kirb Compton on bass hold down the harmonies with ease, while Nathan Thomas (called "Junior") on drums keep them in line. Having shared the stage with mega acts like Chevelle, 10 Years, Days of the New, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Jackyl, Straight Line Stitch, Another Lost Year, Wayland, Screaming for Silence and Nonpoint. Elisium is no stranger to operating at the professional. They have toured independently through 12 states, and have markets that grow every weekend.
Their first album, "Things They Carried," was released on Baltimore based Hard Volume Records in 2004, and their latest EP "Becoming," came out last May (2012) with much anticipation and buzz surrounding it and great reviews from industry people. They are currently being booked by The Lafayette Agency (also books Another Lost Year, Saint Diablo, and Wayland). Elisium is dedicated to the idea that music is more than just entertainment, and that our lives, and the very fabric of the universe are united by rhythm and vibrations and harmony. With song and lyrics and themes ranging from determination, reincarnation, and man's many attempts at describing the universe, they are not afraid to tackle serious themes in powerful ways. 2013 is shaping up to be Elisium's best year yet, with their drive, determination, and passion for bringing you an amazing live show you'll demand for them to come back!
Hollowpoint is a hard hitting quartet that delivers an entertaining show and great original music. Founded in 2012 (by guitarist Erek Wright and bassist Aaron Campisi) they have been working on developing a name for themselves. Finding singer Petey to fill the lead vocal spot they're continuing to mature their sound. Hollowpoint has been described by national acts to resemble a rock sound, similar to Black Stone Cherry.
