07/03/2015 - It's been a while since the last news update, so for those who are interested in what's been going on in the world of EVE OF RELEASE between October 2014 and now, make sure to follow Chris McDermott's official Twitter feed at Twitter.com/EveofRelease for every detail.. Only the most important news will be posted on this feed. Speaking of most important news, here's what's going on in our world this month:
Chris McDermott was asked to contribute his story, in his own words, to the new book 88+ Ways Music Can Change Your Life, alongside Grammy Award winning and Platinum selling artists who worked with big names such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Yes, Chicago, Toto, and so many more. Some are calling it the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" for music lovers. Visit the link above to read more about this excellent new book or to purchase a hardcopy or eBook from Amazon.com. A portion of proceeds go toward helping "Keep Music Alive", compliments of KeepMusicAlive.org, who work everyday toward keeping music alive in schools and all around the world. A very special thanks to the authors Vincent James and Joann Pierdomenico for their hard work on this and so many other projects that make people aware of music's importance to us all.

07/04/2014 - Happy 4th of July! The hiatus from the recent relocation of FLASH SOUND STUDIOS and Chris McDermott's home is nearly over, so be on the look out for the new album to release within the coming months. In conjunction with the release of the new album, we are teaming up with a new publicist to help promote the album using every media outlet available. They will assist with securing media interviews and news articles to raise public awareness of EVE OF RELEASE and the new album. We also hope that fans will continue to do their part by spreading the word so we can acheive a strong independent career.. Because a strong indie career without the time constraints and profit theft of a major record label means better and more abundant music production that we all can enjoy. The more successful EVE OF RELEASE is, the more time will be available to create even more music and media for everybody. Have a great holiday!
01/04/2014 - Two magazines are interested in writing articles about Chris McDermott and EVE OF RELEASE.

Search for EVE OF RELEASE on Google.com to find many articles and exciting stories already available.

10/29/2013 - We're proud to announce that from mid-October on, 50% of ALL song sales will be donated to the charity "Keep a Child Alive". Chris McDermott had this to say about this huge undertaking... "This is a very important cause and I hope that with the help of our loyal fans, we can raise money that will be used to feed, heal, and generally provide for children who have no one else that can. Being a father myself, I can not imagine how anyone in our world could allow innocent children to starve to death or die because they simply couldn't afford antibiotics. It's sickening that in this day-in-age there are still places where this is a reality of life."
