Clay Busch, Vice President of Marketing – Danny Wimmer Presents

I remember being invited to The Roxy because I ‘had to’ see this band from Texas many years ago. They were the first of 5. I had no expectations. And I was blown away. I immediately came back to the office and told the team this is a band that the company needs to get behind. They had their breakthrough moment at Monster Energy Aftershock 2013 and it’s only fitting to premiere ‘Go To War’ from their upcoming sophomore release together.”

Jonny Hawkins of Nothing More commented:

“There’s no such thing as overnight success but there are defining moments. For us, that moment was Aftershock 2013. I can still feel my feet boiling from the sun-drenched, black stage. I still remember my heart pounding from the energy of the crowd. We were given a shot to prove ourselves in front of every label rep from the west coast as well as many bands on the festival. Sink or swim.”

‘Go To War’ is the lead single from the new Nothing More album The Stories We Tell Ourselves, set for release September 15 via Better Noise Records.

Nothing More will perform at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California on Saturday, October 21. For more information and tour dates for the band, visit:http://nothingmore.net/. For information on Monster Energy Aftershock, visit:www.aftershockconcert.com.

Monster Energy Aftershock Brings Over $10 Million In Economic Impact, Charitable Giving To A Local Non-Profit, And Farm-To-Fork Giveaways

With a spend well over $1 million with local businesses, and an economic impact to the community that exceeds $10 million, this weekend’s Monster Energy Aftershock music festival at Discovery Park has made an additional impact on the Sacramento community with an announced $10,000 charitable donation to Stanford Settlement in Natomas.

“Giving back to the community is a high priority for us and we’re always looking for ways to engage in local causes,” says Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents (DWP), producers of Monster Energy Aftershock. “Stanford Settlement is doing great work with youth and others in the neighborhoods around Discovery Park and we’re happy to be able to contribute to their efforts.”

 

New for 2016, Monster Energy Aftershock has embraced Sacramento as America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital and will distribute local produce to festival attendees on both days of the event.  Working closely with Sacramento distributor Produce Express, Monster Energy Aftershock has sourced produce from Stillwater Orchards in Courtland, Larson’s Apple Barn in Apple Hill, and Windmill Vineyards in Woodland; the produce will be distributed to festival attendees free of charge.

 

“More than half of Aftershock’s audience comes from outside of Sacramento and we’re thrilled that those visitors will be exposed the abundance of fresh food that’s grown in this region,” says Mike Testa, COO of Visit Sacramento. “When you look at the thousands of hotel rooms generated, the $1 million plus spend on local businesses, and the charitable contribution that DWP donates to this market, it’s easy to understand why Monster Energy Aftershock is Sacramento’s most valuable music festival.”

 

Recognized as California’s biggest rock festival, the fifth annual Monster Energy Aftershock is led by iconic bands Tool (in a rare U.S. festival appearance) and Avenged Sevenfold. The festival boasts a lineup of 35 bands on three stages plus the Juxtapoz Make Your Mark Graffiti Zone, and more onsite experiences that are designed to engage fans with all aspects of the rock and roll culture.
