ENDO'S SONGS FOR THE RESTLESS NOW SET FOR RELEASE JULY 29

DEBUT APPEARANCE ON OZZFEST CONFIRMED

Endo's Songs For The Restless album is now set for release July 29th on DV8/Columbia.

It'll be launched with the first single, "Simple Lies," which will be serviced to radio July 1st. A video will follow shortly thereafter. In addition to leading at radio, the song also appears on the Daredevil soundtrack (which recently cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard "Top 200 Albums" chart).

As "Simple Lies"' inclusion on the soundtrack was praised in a recent review on Rocknworld.com: "...a Morrissey like delivery set against an interesting and dynamic modern rock musical score."

And in a Miami New Times cover story, writer Omar Perez hailed: "The group embraces more melody on songs like 'Simple Lies' while dishing out heavy-bottomed crunch on 'Shame' and taking the foot off the distortion pedal and adding acoustic guitar chimes on the subdued 'Circles.' Meanwhile Bitton removes himself from the spit-rhyme delivery that permeated Evolve, instead going for a balance between whispered melodrama and screaming fury."

On the touring front, Endo will be making their debut appearance on this summer's Ozzfest along with Ozzy Osbourne, Korn, Marilyn Manson and others. The trek begins June 28th in San Antonio, TX.

The Miami foursome are sure to ignite another gritty wake up call with Songs For The Restless, recorded in Los Angeles with producer David Schiffman (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty). It exhibits Endo in its finest fashion. While clearly a pivotal debut, their Evolve album was independently recorded in sporadic sessions over a year, and the group acquired a new guitarist and drummer right as the disc hit retail. Now with focused studio time and a galvanized line-up, Endo takes Evolve's singularized touches to full fruition with a darker, more seductive sound that magnifies the band's immediate force and draw. Each song guides listeners through prominent peaks and valleys, but rather than rely on simple bursts of anger, vocalist Gil Bitton -- who was born in Israel and moved to Florida at an early age -- drives the hard-soft dynamics with an emotional tone that delivers the dagger with the hammer.

Meanwhile, the band hooked up with Pioneer Electronics for inclusion in their "Headbangers" commercial campaign, which ran in March. "Simple Lies" and "Ruckus" from the album were included on extensive TV, Internet and print promotions. The TV commercial aired during the Colonial Basketball Association games (February-March 2003). A Pioneer Electronics CD-Rom that is being packaged in special issues of Super Street, Eurotuner, Car Audio and Electronics magazines will be distributed at auto trade shows throughout 2003.
