Riversyde Performs At Indie Music Fest In Las Vegas

Austin, TX (Top40 Charts/ Riversyde Official Website) Alternative rock band RIVERSYDE was selected as one of the forty bands that will perform at The annual Indie Music Fest, April 27-28, 2012, at The Henderson Pavilion in Las Vegas.

This two day competition will have the best unsigned indie artists selected from across the country. Two lucky artists will walk the Red Carpet at The 22nd annual Los Angeles Music Awards event and each will receive a Producers Choice Award for their achievements.

In a recent interview with Elk Grove Citizen, the band said their combination of influences makes up a sound that is a blend of grunge-rock from the 1990s, and 1980s hard rock and progressive rock. "If you like our CD you will definitely like our live show…we have a lot of energy," said lead guitarist Paul Devassy.

RIVERSYDE is #3 on the Austin alternative charts on ReverbNation and a featured artist on Unsigned Top Charts. The band released their debut album, See Us Now, on March 31, 2012 at Lucky Lounge in Austin. The 16-track CD ranges from soulful ballads, to rock, to an even heavier sound. See Us Now was recorded at Arlyn Studios in the heart of downtown Austin. The album was mastered by Ben Blank, founder of Ben Blank Audio. His work has received seven gold records, Austin Addy Awards, and Billboard Top Ten success.

The track "What's Love About" will be used in DIRECTV's documentary, Gone Until December. XT50 Fitness, an online fitness program, will feature "Gravity" in their workouts. "Knocking On My Door" received radio play on Off the Chart Radio, the Internet's #1 hit music station. Watch RIVERSYDE's music video for "Knocking On My Door."

Maximum Threshold, an internet radio show dedicated to presenting up and coming hard rock bands, will be streaming the track "Nothing At All" on their show. Other tracks will be featured on The Austinot, a blog and podcast about all things Austin.

The band released a four-song self-titled EP in April 2011. "On their debut EP, Shane Blake's awesome vocals sound older than his young face seems capable of, but the lyrics, melodies and guitars support his deep growl with expertise," said Starr Tucker, NY Waste, Music Reviews.

RIVERSYDE performed at The Heart of Texas Rockfest in downtown Austin and has played in clubs across Texas. The band also promoted See Us Now in Boston. "The album is very personal," said lead singer Shane Blake. "We put a lot of ourselves into our music. My '90s rock voice, our '80s classic rock guitarist, hardcore drummer, and progressive bass player provide something for everyone. It's all alternative to us."

RIVERSYDE is an alternative rock band based out of Austin, Texas that formed in the fall of 2010. The four-member band is made up of lead singer Shane Blake, drummer Mark Griffor, lead guitarist Paul Devassy, and bassist Christian Palacio. They have appeared in Bass Musician Magazine, Southside Times, INsite Magazine, South Asian Insider, and other publications. RIVERSYDE's purpose as a band is to share their love of music and passion for life with the world, one city at a time.
