ROB HALFORD, LAMB OF GOD Featured On 'Rocknation' TV Program

Coming soon to a TV near you will be the weekly 30-minute metal program, "Rocknation". Put together by the Perris Records label, the program will air weekly Saturday night at midnight, and will feature only the best metal videos — of artists from other labels as well as on Perris. The show will be made available on both Time Warner and Comcast. Cities confirmed thus far to carry "Rocknation" include Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Tyler, Oklahoma City, Atlanta, and Omaha, with more soon to follow. The first confirmed artist to be featured on "Rocknation" will be none other than the legendary voice of JUDAS PRIEST, Rob Halford, as well as 3 LEGGED DOGG (which features members of BLACK SABBATH/HEAVEN AND HELL, DIO, DAVID LEE ROTH, and QUIET RIOT) and LAMB OF GOD — with others soon to be confirmed.

In addition to the TV program, "Rocknation" is a metal newspaper, which features both artists from the label as well as other notable names — including Halford, Slash, AC/DC, and MEGADETH. Thus far, two issues have hit the streets, with the inaugural issue currently viewable at the Rocknation web site. Issue 3 will include interviews with MACHINE HEAD, CHIMAIRA, LAMB OF GOD, LIT, and TRIUMPH.

"I am very excited about the launch of Rocknation," says Perris head/Rocknation founder Tom Mathers. "I believe that Rocknation will bring rock back into the mainstream, and will give bands a medium to promote their music nationwide."
