ONESIDEZERO To Headline SAVE DARFUR Benefit Concert

ONESIDEZERO will headline the "Amplify Your Voice Against Genocide" benefit concert June 9, 2007 at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles with support from RED SNOW, SLOW MOTION REIGN and VOKEE (featuring former members of THE APEX THEORY). All proceeds from the show will go to the Save Darfur Coalition (www.savedarfur.org).

"Just like our Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, the Native Americans discovered and conquered, Rwanda, and now a current genocide in Darfur, Sudan. We gather together to amplify our voices against genocide," says ONESIDEZERO guitarist Levon Sultanian. "I am the offspring of martyrs of a genocide perpetrated 92 years ago. I bear testimony to the atrocities imposed upon my people. I can empathize with others in the same position. That is why I participate in the Darfur demonstrations, and I do so through my music."

ONESIDEZERO is gearing up for the release of their Ulrich Wild-produced (STATIC-X, STABBING WESTWARD, TAPROOT) sophomore album, which is due on June 5, 2007 via Corporate Punishment.

"The last 5 to 6 years have been some of the most insane and most amazing times of my life," says Sultanian. "ONESIDEZERO as a band have grown so much together in this time. We went through the ups and downs of life and after some new demos under our belts started the rebuilding process of ONESIDEZERO. It was really exciting to bring in all these news songs into th e recording studio after working on them at home and at rehearsal for over a year. Hope everyone digs them as much as we do!"

ONESIDEZERO released its Maverick Records debut, "Is This Room Getting Smaller?", in 2001, which produced Active Rock singles "Instead Laugh" and "New World Order". Subsequent U.S. tours with INCUBUS, 311, SOULFLY, SOIL and STATIC-X made them an instant fan favorite.

The band is currently previewing two new tracks on its MySpace page.
