Living Dead Lights - video teaser

So, we can't show you yet, but we can still tease right? Living Dead Lights recently shot a video for their song "...To All The Youth," and while the video doesn't premier until January, we thought we'd get you a little worked up ahead of time.
We'd also like to congratulate the guys on their single, "What Do You Do?" reaching #45 on the Alternative radio charts. Looks like they're well on their way to making the same impact here in the US that they are overseas. Don't believe us? Check out this clip from Rolling Stone Magazine in Italy! The guys will be on tour throughout Europe starting early 2011.

The Tale of Mr. Downstairs

The Tale of Mr. Downstairs is quite the epic tale - dragons, Quiditch, and really just the story of two best friends - Asia and Dani. And so, Mr. Downstairs was formed, and as part of the Maphia Phamily we are sure there will be many more adventures to come.

Like the video? Like the girls!

Week of 11/10 - new Eyes Set To Kill tour announced

This was a big week for the Maphia Management phamily (yes, phamily). Eyes Set to Kill announced their upcoming December tour as the direct support for Drugs (Craig Owen's newest project). Will be a great tour for the band and a chance for ESTK fans to get to attend a stellar show with a killer lineup.

The highlight of the tour will be their December 3 appearance at the Key Club. This event will be a big Warped Tour function - bands from the Southern California region will be competing for a spot on this upcoming summer's Vans Warped Tour. ESTK and Drugs will be the headliners at the end of the competition, showing the newbies how to work the Warped crowd.

The past few weeks have been a great time for Maphia to prove itself as a legitimate management team. New additions to the phamily include Deception of a Ghost (Bullet Tooth) and Stray From the Path (Sumerian Records). While both of these have established loyal fan bases, Maphia is on a mission to bring these heavy hitters to market with new tours on the way.

At the same time, Light You Legend and Mr. Downstairs continue to toil away in the studio. While each band is putting together their first full lengths,there is no doubt that both will make waves with their unique approaches and styles. We can't wait to hear the finished products and begin building on these already solid artist foundations.

On behalf of the Maphia Management team, we thank you for checking up. Check often as we'll be posting weekly updates of our activity and of the progress our growing phamily will be making. Most importantly, keep rocking!
