London’s The Boxer Rebellion are pleased to announce their upcoming Spring North American headline tour. Beginning on Friday, April 6, in Tucson, AZ, at Club Congress, the tour will take in nights at notable venues across the U.S. and Canada such as The Parish in Austin, TX, on Tuesday, April 10, Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY, on Friday, April 27, The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA, on Tuesday, May 15, and El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, on Friday, May 18. After the tour’s completion, the band will also be making a very special appearance in Mexico City, Mexico, on Saturday, May 19. General tickets for the upcoming tour are now on sale through the band’s official Web site HERE.

Additionally, the band recently released a live recording titled Live In Tennessee digitally. Available now for purchase through iTunes and the band’s official Web store, the album features an entire 16-track set performed by the band in frontman Nathan Nicholson’s hometown of Maryville, TN. Recorded and mixed by Ben MacAmis at the Clayton Center for Performing Arts on October 12, 2010, Live In Tennessee also features four different album covers, a digital booklet, and is available in full high-definition WAV and MP3 digital formats.

Released on February 1, 2011, and created in conjunction with Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne), The Cold Still, the band’s third full-length LP and an album regarded by Billboard Magazine as an “epic, effortless offering from a quartet dead set on perfecting their pop-rock craft,” is an exercise in master class performances and sophisticated songwriting from a band that embodies the very definition of “independent.” Monumental and intimate in equal measure, it is a breathtaking album bristling with tense passion and heartrending lyrics, all with an effortless grace that has become The Boxer Rebellion’s trademark.

ABOUT THE BOXER REBELLION
London based alt-rockers The Boxer Rebellion have forged a career that has literally set industry landmarks and defied the odds from day one. The 2009 self-released Union LP saw them become the first wholly independent band in history to enter the Billboard Albums Chart on digital sales alone. iTunes US ultimately declared Union their 2009 Alternative Album of the Year and in 2010 the band performed as themselves in Drew Barrymore’s Going the Distance, also starring Justin Long, Charlie Day, Christina Applegate and Jason Sudeikis.

The Boxer Rebellion’s third studio album The Cold Still – produced by the legendary Ethan Johns – is an exercise in master class performances and sophisticated song writing. Regarded by Billboard Magazine as an “epic, effortless offering from a quartet dead set on perfecting their craft,” it is monumental and intimate in equal measure, and secured the band their network TV debut courtesy of David Letterman.

Known not only for their critically acclaimed albums and music videos, but also for their fearsome live reputation, The Boxer Rebellion have already enjoyed two sold out North American tours to date and will return in October 2011 for an extended set of shows across Mexico, the US, and Canada.

The Boxer Rebellion is Tennessee-native Nathan Nicholson, Australian guitarist Todd Howe, and Englishmen Adam Harrison and Piers Hewitt on bass and drums.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, WaterTower Music and DC Entertainment today announced Batman: Arkham City – The Album, which will be released in conjunction with the highly anticipated forthcoming videogame Batman: Arkham City. Featuring 12 new original tracks by Panic! At The Disco, Coheed and Cambria, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and more (full track list below), Batman: Arkham City – The Album will be released on October 4th, two weeks prior to the game’s North American release on October 18th. The Batman: Arkham City Collector’s Edition of the game will include a download code for the album along with additional bonus content.

The artists featured on Batman: Arkham City – The Album approached their contributions to the album with their own unique interpretations of the stories surrounding Batman. The result is an eclectic mix of dynamic, atmospheric songs for an album that will appeal to fans of both the artists and Batman: Arkham City. Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez said, “I write in a very conceptual format with the stories that surround Coheed and Cambria, but Batman has a much larger, defined history and rules that go along with it. My goal was to find universal themes from Batman’s existing history to help give the lyrics legs and dimension so that the song could live within that world.”

Check out the track listing below:

1. Panic! At The Disco – Mercenary
2. Coheed and Cambria – Deranged
3. The Duke Spirit – Creature
4. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Shadow On The Run
5. Blaqk Audio – Afterdark
6. The Raveonettes – Oh, Stranger
7. (Crosses) – The Years
8. The Damned Things – Trophy Widow
9. Daughtry – Drown In You
10. The Boxer Rebellion – Losing You
11. Serj Tankian – Total Paranoia

*Bonus Collector’s Edition track
12. A Place to Bury Strangers – In The Shadow

The highly anticipated videogame will step out of the shadows and onto store shelves for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Games for Windows PC and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. Published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal master-minds. The sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.

London’s The Boxer Rebellion announce the release of their second single “The Runner,” taken from this year’s Ethan Johns-produced epic The Cold Still. The single is packaged with a stunning music video directed by DarkFibre (Ishbel Whittaker and Marc Hawker) and an electro-rock remix by hotly-tipped Welsh trio The Joy Formidable.

The Oscar short-listed DarkFibre are causing a storm in the commercials and music video world. Their recent film for Renault, starring Dita Von Teese, was banned on daytime TV, while their video campaigns for Amnesty International are nothing short of seminal and are a must-watch. As fans of The Boxer Rebellion, they jumped at the chance to collaborate with the band and turn “The Runner” into a visually and emotionally engaging mini-masterpiece. “We took the cornerstone idea of honesty and its fragility from the lyrics and created a narrative that would be both completely surprising and utterly compelling,” says co-director Ishbel Whittaker. “We wanted to make something that was playful and naughty but also profound, raw and honest.”

WATCH “THE RUNNER” FROM THE BOXER REBELLION HERE OR BELOW

The Boxer Rebellion and The Joy Formidable are not strangers to one another. Having crossed paths at many a festival, it was only natural that a collaboration would soon be in the works. The Joy Formidable’s deep, dark remix of “The Runner” is a thumping, fast-paced offering, delivering a sonic playground of furious drums, fat bass lines and electo wails in which Nathan Nicholson’s vocals float about fittingly.

Released on February 1, 2011, and created in conjunction with Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne), The Cold Still, one of FILTER Magazine’s “20 Most Anticipated Albums of 2011,” is an exercise in master class performances and sophisticated songwriting from a band that embodies the very definition of “independent.” Regarded by Billboard Magazine as an “epic, effortless offering from a quartet dead set on perfecting their pop-rock craft,” The Cold Still is continuing to captivate music fans around the world. Monumental and intimate in equal measure, it is a breathtaking album bristling with tense passion, giant riffs and heartrending lyrics, all with an effortless grace that has become The Boxer Rebellion’s trademark.

The Joy Formidable recently released their new album, The Big Roar, on March 15 via Canvasback/Atlantic Records. The Big Roar comes two years after their 2009 debut, A Balloon Called Moaning, which SPIN Magazine named one of the “10 Best Records You Might Have Missed in 2010.” Acclaim on The Big Roar comes from the likes of NME praising its “gutsy, chest-swelling brilliance.”
